Howard, overlooking Nar ragaasett bay, and is in splendid health and well preserved despite his wounds and hardships during and before the civil war. He was born in "Warwick, R. L, and reached manhood when the contest in Kansas was at its hottest. Being a "fanatical abolitionist," as the phrase then, was, and being also a dead shot with a Sharps rifle, he joined the Browns in Kansas and was a trusted and active man in all their fights and raids. His account is as thrilling as any romance. He declares that Brown's first organization, with headquarters at Al bia, la,, was betrayed by an Englishman named Floyd, who had been employed as drillmaster, and so the raid was delayed for a year. When nearly ready, in 18o9, Brown suspected that he was again betrayed, and moved hastily with the twenty men lie bad at his Maryland farm instead of waiting for the other detachments. Strange as it may seem to cool observers, Colonel Howard still thinks the move ment might have been a success if the other detachments had come up. In the final catastrophe he was with Ka-gi and othor3 in that "dugout" on tho river front, and was the only one who escaped. He traveled by night walks to Harrisburg, and thence in dis guise to St. Louis, before he dared to read a paper or ask about the outcome of the raid. "When the civil war began ho enlisted in the Ninth Rhode Island, but soon became an independent scout and spy, was twice in Richmond as spy and had many narrow escapes. He is still a fervent adnvrerot John Brown and proud of his share in the raid. GOING OUT IN DARKNESS. California's ram oris Litigant Shut Up iu a JUadhoiibC. Sarah Althea Hill Sharon Terry's ex traordinary career has ended, for tho present at least, in the Stockton (Cal.) asylum for tho insane. The first thii ty years of her life were as bright and happy as youth, health, comfort and the loving care of near relatives could make them; tho rest was but borrow and hu miliation, and whether the woman was more sinned against than sinning is still matter of dispute among these who have studied the evidence most carefully. Suffice it to say that some of the clear est headed lawyers in San Fiaucisco de clared her the lawful wife of Senator William Sharon, and that Judge J. Sullivan, be fore whom the matter was first tried, decided in her tavor, giving her heavy alimo ny and declaring kw. ner to do enutJeu ttww to a wife's share w of the senator's $30,000,000. He Y fought it with all - mu Lamm nis sakah althea tliuiy. money could em ploy, and she was finally beaten. She married her lawyer, Judge David S. Tern., and he was killed by a United Slates marshal, who, according to the court, 'had good reason to believe that Judge Terry was about to assault Justice Stephen J. Field, of tho United States supreme court." The public is familiar with the facts and tho discussion as to jurisdiction. Tho woman's mind gave way, and iu some manner not explained all her little property was lost. She was ejected from various San Francisco hotels on the ground that she was an unsafe guest, and then taken before the com missioners of insumtj-, where the scene was dramatic to a painful degree. Many who took part in the great legal battle with Sharon were present, but their re--tiiuony was miiecesaiy, as her acts in court showed acuto mania. Her brother, Morgan Hill, is very wealthy and resides in Paris, while Sarah Althea is an in fcano pensioner on the &tate in which she has suffered to much. A Long Ferry Indeed. A sixty mile ferry is a novelty of rather doubtful success, but the Toledo, Ann Aibor and Northern Michigan rail road proposes to have one acioss Lake Michigan from Kewaunee to Frankfort. Tho fcrry steamer now in course of con struction will cost $250,000, and it is expected to carry forty freight cars and make the sixty mile crossing in five hours. This will save from six dollars to twelve dollars on each car, the shift ing of freights costing that much more than ferrying the cars, and there will be much less liability to breaka'-e. Should it prove successful, Milwaukee will also have a ferry, and big results are expected. Tests for Diamonds.

FAIR ONES WHO WRITE ERIEFS AND ARGUE CASES. i Mrs. Kilgore, Who TiVas Recently Snnhbed by an Alumni Association Mrs. Ahr ens, Mile. IJilcesco and Other Legal "Minded Slembers of the Gentler Ser. Legal circles in Philadelphia are con siderably stirred up over a mistake made with reference to a woman lawyer Mrs. Carrie Burnham Kilgore who, as one of the alumni of the university, received m invitation to irttend the annual ban quet of the association. She prorifptly accepted, and the male lawyers v. ere nmm .jrarss 1WE3 ' :mr-A it il -1 I -! ' f 'I CARRIE E. KILGORE. filled with dismay at the prospect of having a woman among them on the fe6tivo occasion. Her presence would mean to them the loss of their post prandial cigars at least, and after the grave deliberation which the subject de manded it was decided to return Mrs. Kilgore's subscription and let the dinner be, as heretofore, strictly a "stag" affair. This action naturally elicited some caustic comment on the part ot the talented lady most directly affected, and the case has been argued, pro and con, I with much vigor. This setback is but ono of many simi lar incidents in the career of Mrs. Kil gore. Probably no person living ever fought so persistently for tho honor ol admission to the bar. As far back as 1873 the struggles of this lady, who was then Carrie Burn ham, began. She paid her taxes, which were, of course, accepted, and then of fered to vote, but her ballot was rejected. An unsuccessful appeal to the courts followed. Some time afterward Miss Burnham registered with Damon Y. Kilgore and began tho study of the law. Her application for admission to the bar was denied by tho board of exam ers and their action confirmed by tho courts. Six years later she made an ef fort to get into the law department of tho University of Pennsylvania, but did not succeed. Miss Bnrnham's next important act was to marry Mr. Kilgore, her preceptor, by whom 6ho had two children. An other application to the university fol lowed and she was admitted, but her iS MLLE. BILCESCO. woes as a lawyer had only nicely begun. Several courts refused to permit her to practico before them, and would not even hear her in her own behalf, so that she was obliged to impress her husband into service to argue her cases. After two or three bills providing for extend ing to women the privilege of practicing in the Pennsylvania courts had failed in tha legislature from one cause or an other, one finally got through alter a three years' struggle, and then Mrs. Kilgore became a full fledged attorney at law, and v as admitted to practice in the supreme court of the state, which of course cairied with it a similar right in all lower courts. Since then rhs. Kilgore's career has been a brilliant as well as a profitable and pleasant one. She has acquired a large practice of her own, which has been augmented by much of that of her husband, who died some time ago. She has on many occasions been appointed by the District of Columbia a commis sioner to take testimony, and is now also a practitioner in the supreme court of the United States. Another bright woman lawyer is Mrs. Mary A. Ahrens, of Chicago, the petito chairman of the Woman's School Suf frage association, of Cook county. Mrs. Ahrens is not alone a lawyer, although that is at present her profession. She has also practiced medicine, and has been a teacher, a lecturer, an artist and an amateur floriculturist and horticul turist at different periods of her half century of life. Iu 1S57 she left the Galesburg (His.) seminary and married a farmer named Fellows. They had three children. Afterward the family moved to southern Illinois, and while on a sketching tour this bright little woman fell on the rocks and b-idly m jured her left arm. permanently impair ing its use. Sne moved to Chicago, and Mr. Fellows having died, she was mar ried to the artist Louis Ahren in 1SS3. In 1SS7 Min. Ahren decided to take up the study of law. She eniovs the nnioue i distinction of never having lost a case in j conrt, and the reason is not hard to find, ror ntdess there 13 merit in the offering client's cause she will not, accept it. Mrs, Alirens is of a parricrnlariy char itable nature, snd strange to say she is in no sense a masenhue wo-man. The fiit woman ever admitted to the i bar iu France was Mile.

Bilcesco, accompanied by her mother, left for Paris, and ap plied for admission to the Ecoledu Droit, and in the examination surpassed the 500 male candidates. This magnificent showing swept a-vay the opposition of several members of the faculty who had objected to Hying in the face of prece dent to the extent of permitting one woman to enter the school which had several hundred male students.

I Her devoted mother sat by her bide the chapei on idea being as strong in France today as it ever was and patiently listened during all those years to the tedious lectures, which were unintel ligible to her, but which were eagerly absorbed by the judicial mind of her young daughter. Mile. Bilcesco gradu ated with high honors, and at once re turned to her native city of Bucharest, where she is now winning fame and wealth as a lawyer. She is but twenty three years of age, and is of a slight, trim figure. She has a high, intellectual forehead, irom which masses of dark wavy hair are carelessly brushed back. She has the pride of appearance com mon to all v ell regulated females, and MRS. MART A. AHRENS. she is said to be a dutiful and exception ally affectionate daughter, possessing none of the eccentricities supposed to be peculiar to talented women. Mile. Bilcesco enjoyed the rather unusual dis tinction last year of having her admis sion to the bar discussed with much interest in tho daily press of Paris, and, in lesser degree, by most of the news papers of Europe. She certainty starts out well advertised. "Listen to Sarah; she knows," was the admiring comment to which Michael Wilkins was wont to give vent when ever his wife, Sarah, was "argifying" with any of the men neighbors. Sarah Wilkins is not a lawyer, but she is nev ertheless celebiated as the only woman who ever made an argument before tho supreme court of Kansas. She also en joys considerable local fame as the old dest white settler of Atchison county. Besides all this she is known as one of the shrewdest business women in the state of Kansas, where she owns several farms, Mrs. Wilkins has always been a par ticularly assertive woman She selected her husband from several suitors because she thought he would oboy better than the others, and she was not mistaken. When the "Pollywog" road was built through Mrs. Wilkins' farm tho amount paid did not suit her and she brought an action for damages. When the case went up to the supi erne court in Topeka tho old lady was dissatisfied with her attor-ne3-'s presentation of the matter, and she got up, to tho gieat surprise of the m m'LM vFcF?.AV : MRS. SARAH WILKIN'S. learned and dignified judges, and took a hand at "lawyering" herself. She stated her case very clearly, and it is not believed that her action has injured her chances any. Mrs. Wilkins is Eixty years of age and is reputed to be very wealthy, although those best informed think that she is worth only about $t0, 000. Most of her money she has made by lending at enormous rates of interest. Mrs. Wilkins is not in the most distant sense conventional. She used to have a habit of walking along the street smok ing a pipe, wliile her husband, who was afterward killed on the railroad, fol lowed meekly behind with their adopted child they never had children of their own. She lives in a two room house, built by her husband in 1854, with three farm boys and two nieces as companions. Octavtis Cohen. "Worucn and Worry.

ONE IS PROMOTED AND THE OTHER GETS UP AN UNPLEASANTNESS. Hanover Is Now Tart of Prussia and the Duke of Cumberland "Waive Ilis Claims After a Protest The Scotch DuLe of Argjle's Advancement. The duke business, as Artemus Ward would say, has been badly overdone for some years, which was but a natural re sult of the rapid changes in the social structure. Dukes and lords ceased to have the old feudal privileges and to be the natural leaders and hereditary mag istrates of their little domains before they had learned how to be industrial enter prisers, scholars, inventor! and other wise leaders in the modern system. But they have made the turn successfully, and many of them are now eminent in art, science, literature and manufac tures. And it is this which made the recent performance of the Duke of Cumber land so startling. He first declared that he was still king of Hanover and would not accept the Gnelph fund, so called, in lieu of his royal rights, because he was satisfied that Emperor William would soon run the whole Germanic system to the demnition bowwows, as they say at Harvard, and that -when the breakup came Hanover would again be a kingdom and he, Ernest Augustus William Adolphus George Frederick, would be king thereof as his father was. 1 &3 fife fSl & '? kh iifaI'3i,te: 's, w ,Aij;'Yi-?ci s SM'JtfvsreaH rsrf zzz. ' ,;.,..t ?. nJifc: P'-rrr ff. A ;a. Tti' iyss DUKE OF CUMBERLAND. After worrying the diplomats very much he changed his mind and consent ed to take the money and agree never to try to be king. When Hanover was an nexed to Prussia, in 1866, King George was bulldozed into accepting a settle ment, but when Bismarck unfolded his entire policy King George refused the settlement. Then Prussia, that is to say Bismarck, took all his property and rev enues and fought him with the income. The imperial landtag ref nspd to sanction this robbery and something had to bo done. The income has been devoted to subsi dizing journals and public men to create an opinion. Finally the present Em peror William consented to revoke the sequestration, and the Duke of Cumber land now agrees to accept the 60,000,000 'silver mrks, present valuation of his father's claim', and suirenders all claims to the crown of Hanover. The origin of an English duke's right to a German throne is peculiar. James I of England had a daughter who mar ried a German prince, and her daughter, Sophia, married tho elector of Hanover; so when Queen Anne died childless, Aug. 1, 1714, and there were no heirs in tho English branch, the right to the crown belonged to the oldest ton of that Sophia, and so ho became George I of England. This made an awkward union between tho electorate and the kingdom, and involved England in various wars. The crown of Hanover, however, was limited to the male line; so when Vic toria became queen her uncle Ernest Augustus became king of Hanover, the English people rejoicing greatly at the separation and even more at the absence of the hated Ernest, though he and his heirs remained dukes of Cumberland in England. The son of Ernest Augustus was blind George, and with him ended the Hanoverian kingdom. fev Tl .Sf i a , mii s.v W YV 77 1 V i4P IMSl. M 711 Dl'KE OFjARGYLE.

Sbe Hunted All Over New Tork to Find Blcliard and She round Him One day as I was coming up from the ferry ot the look of Forty-second street there was a little woman dressed in black sitting at my right. Sho wasn't in mourn ing, but in plain black, and, though she must have been thirty-five years old, she had the face of a girl of twenty. It was a Bweet, womanly face, and yet there was a look to it which I did not like-a combina tion of suffering and determination. She asked me a few questions- about tho town and I knew that 8he was a stranger here. She dropped ont of sight at Broadway that great lane of human life, up and down which so many travel to be swallowed up and seen no more. I wondered a bit and then forgot her. A week later I met the little woman on Twenty-third street of an afternoon. She was flitting up and down like one last iu the crowd, and yet I saw that she closely scrutinized tho face of every man bhe passed. Two or three times she gave a start of surprise, as it she had met a fa miliar face, but she walked on again to re new her search. It looked to me as if she were hunting for somebody some one per son in the great crowds surging up and down like waves which could not he checked. By and by she vanished from sight and I could but wonder again. Two weeks ago I discovered her again in the corridors of the postoffice. She hnng about for an hour or more, having no er rand except to scan the face of every man who passed her as she leaned against the wall. There were three or fonr who would have spoken to her, but she nnd a way of looking at a man which plainly warned him to keep his distance. She went away after awhile went of? down Broadway and then I nondered if she were not in the employ of some detective agency. A week ago, one night as I tramped down Broadway, meeting a belated pedes trian now and then, I suddenly saw the little woman in black at the comer of Ca nal street. She stood there looking upaud down Canal, but as I passed her she went off up Broadway, walking at a pace which showed that she had come to soioe sudden determination. Yesterday, at the Grand Union depot, I encountered her again, and perhaps for the last time. Happening into one of the waft ing room'-, I ww her sitting beside a man. He was a man of forty, and he had a wicked, dissipated look. It was plain to see that he was alo in bad humor, while she looked more determined than ever. There they sat, side by side, silent and mo rose, he glancing toward the door now and then, while she occasionally raised her eye to the clock. A.fter awhile I sat down on the seat back of them, and I hadn't been there long when I heard him growl: "Theidea of yourchaing mearound like this! I tell jou I won't go back" "Itichardf ' she replied, and there was a something in her voice to warn him that she was fearfnlly in earnest. "You are go ing back dead or alive! Take your choice!
