A New York jury has found a young man in that cit y guilty of felonious as sault on a young woman, while plying her trade as a book canvasser, and the penalty of his' ofleuse is twenty years in prison. And yet this youug woman tes tified to having called at the young man's bachelor apartments before breakf asfc in the morning, negotiated the sale of her book while the young man was in his bath robe, and departed without making any disturbance until two days: later, when she proceeded against the-. alleged offender. The Xew York Times Ven tures to doubt whether she would have won her case had the jury been composed of members of her own sex, aud imbued with a fair sense of the proprieties f ! Colorado is taking interest m an other metal than silver. Her people think the- have discovered new- gold mines of value there. They have started a boom in the stock market for shares in thi3 kind of metal which is having a big run. One day recently 1,079,100 shares of mining stocks changed hands in Denver, the price of thcVdifferent stocks ranging from one mill to ' fort 3 five cents a share. The craze 'worse even in other places in Colorado than it is in Denver. In Colorado Springs 3,000,000 shares changed hands, and the few thousand people in Cripple Creek bought and sold 176,000 shaves on the same day. The printing presss are unable to supply certificates as fast as they can be sold. An increased supply of gold would be highly .acceptable in the world's exchange just now, and would be par ticularly convenient for use in our own national transactions with foreign coun tries. It will be prudent for purchasers, however, to make a distinction between gold and gold stocks, and we may. well wait to ascertain on what the value of the latter rests before being too San guine. - ' . . CURRENT COMMENT. Honorable John "Wanamaker has again called attention to his. liberality as a campaign contributor, which not only serves to advertise the profitable nature of his private business but gives notice of his willingness to buy further politi cal honors. V v There are republicans who think 3Ir Harrison might put in his time booming foreign missions more satisfactorily than in chasing another nomination. With 30,000 fresh tfd'6Vou" their -.way to Cuba the revolutionists' -certainly need all the sympathy the' can get; a little ambition would also be thankf ully re ceived. Tom Reed concluded to throw over board all superflurous articles,' including that comical moustache, before the storm begins. HEARD IN PASSING.

Bach's mother had a marvelous ear for music. lie said sbo wa3 a better judge of musio than his father. Beecher once said, "Tho memory of my sainted mother is tho brightest recollec tion of iny early years." ; Lulli was fortunate in having a musical mother, who gave him a large amount of training before he Was turned over to a music master. Marlborough's mother wished him to bo a soldier and often narrated to bim deeds of military daring in order to inspire him to emulate them. Tennyson's mother was always regarded by him as a model for all other mothers. Ho once said, "The training of a child is woman's wisdom.' Emperor Charles V issued an edict in tended to repress the growing tendency to ward disobedience to parents, and particu larly disrespect toward mothers,, George Herbert declared that his mother bad mora influenco on his life than all good mother Is worth 100 schoolmasters." The mother of Correggio was at first op posed to his art work and only yielded ! after ho had elicited the commendation of i ! others by a display of what ho could do in j tho way of painting. , , . f ; Tho elder Pitt had an idea that his bias ' toward statesmanship Was gien him by ' his mother's lovo of political affairs.

Gibson Inherits a Fortune and a n&a(Uomo Estate In Enjland. Estello A. Gibson has inherited a for tune and a beautiful estate in England, but sho declares that sho would not give up her career as a pro fessional trained nurso for all tho wealth in Chica go. Sho will doubtless recon sider this deter mination, for sho has already do- ; a .i , ; ffjj o 43-Mip&.

Mrs. Gibson was born in Liverpool 29 years ago, and her parents, who woro Irish, left her prac tically nothing except a rich, musical Irish brogue. Sho was ono of 11 chil dren, but all are dead except herself. At the ago of 15 sho was married, and fivo years later her husband died, leaving her with three Email children and very little monoy. Shortly after tho death of her hus band Mrs. Gibson's uncle, a wealthy British barrister named Charles Russell, invited her to corno to England. Two of her children had died, and with the third, a bright littlo girl, sho crossed the ocean. Barrister Russeli had made a fortune and was passing the declin ing years of his life on his lovely estate in Essex. Ho became so attached to the little girl that he willed her his entiro fortune. Mrs. Gibson remained with him but a short time, preferring to support her child by her own efforts rather than to livo at her uncle's ex pense. Sho returned to America and became a trained nurse. About this timo tho little girl died, and Mr. Russell was heartbroken over the occurrence. He declined steadily in health, and died of paralysis Oct. 29, leaving his entire fortune to Mrs. Gib eon. His estate in Essex embraced 24 acres of lawn and tree shaded land, and is ono of tho most valuable holdings in the neighborhood. The first resolve Mrs. Gibson made upon hearing of her good fortune was to put an elevator in tho College of Physicians and Surgeons, Chicago, so that in tho future the nurses would not wear tnemeeives out climbing tne stairs. Sho has also selected a site for a mruical , . . hospital of her own in Chicago, where tho poor who shrink from going to tho IGNATIUS DONNELLY'S SISTER. "Tlio Mornfiis Star of Catholic Song" and Her Work With the Fen. Miss Eleanor C. Donnelly, who has been invited to read an original poem at the Atlauta exposition, is a sister of Ignatius Donnelly and has often been MISS ELEANOR CECELIA DONNELLT. called ''Tho Morning Star of Catholic Song. ' ' Sho has published a number of volumes of verse, among them "Out of Sweet Solitude," "Children of the Golden Sheaf" and "Domus Dei," and her work plainly demonstrates that sho possesses tho truo poetio instinct. She was born in Philadelphia Sept. 6, 1848, and was tho daughter of Dr. Philip Carroll Donnelly. Her first poetical work was a hymn to tho Blessed Virgin, which was,pxiblish- ed when she was only w years ot age. When her talents were moro mature, sho wrote poen?s and stories for tho secular press, and her productions also appeared frequently in Catholic religious publica tions. In 1885 tho Augustinian Fathers, iu recognition of her religious poetry, secured for her from Rome a golden rel iquary, ornamented with filigree work and containing relics of tho four illus trious members of , their order St.- Nicholas Tolentine, St. Thomas of Villa Nova, St. Claro of Montefalco and the Blessed Rita of Cascia. Tho fol lowing year ner "JuDiieo iymn in his honor led Pope Leo XIII to send her his apostolic benediction and to ac cept a copy of her book, "The Birthday Bouquet." Her "Jubilee Hymn" was translated into Italian and German, and special music was written for it. In all Miss Donnelly has published over a dozen volumes of poetry and prose, and her poems havo often been classed in ; merit with those of Adelaide Proctor. 1", Tho Atlanta exposition is not the first important event which Miss Donnelly has been asked to commemorate in vara. Whsn tho centennial of tho adoption of tho constitution of the United States waa celebrated in Phila delphia in 1887, sho was invited to read an odo before tho American Catholic Historical .society' of Philadelphia and did eo. In ?.S93 Rho ulso wrote the Co lumbian ode for Philadelphia's com memoration of tho quadricentennial of iho discovery of America. Tlio Banana In the West Indies. .
