WOMEN AS DOCTORS.
rbc Troubles That Besot the Kir 8t A ill!) UK Them. From lhe Philadelphia X*w*. “The women doctors ot to-day can form no idea of ttie thorns that beset the rath ot that little army of pioneers whose brave persistency in the face of every obstacle smoothed the way tor their sisters of a literUav,” said Dr. Hannah E. Longshore, ‘ siUi’ns? in her cosy back parlor, she entertained a News gatherer with remln iscencesof her long life as a physician. Dr. Longshore wag a member of the lirstclass, consisting ol eight members, that grad uated trom the Woman’s Meidcal College 0 ( Pennsylvania in 1852. Five members of the class are still living, four practicing in r arious parts of the country, and one in England. From a little child Dr. Long ue showed a decided bent toward medi ■im-. preferring to play at doctor and dis section to all other childish pleasures, it ,vas not until alter she was married and the mother of two children, however, that she set about the consummation of her hojKts and desires. When her intention became known her relatives refused to speak to her even at “meeting,” and most of her lriends deserted her. Those who were brave enough to stand by her suf fered social ostracism. Her husband was derided and sneered at as the crazy hus band of a crazier woman. He bore ail these taunts and slurs bravely and aided her hv every means in his power. Her Perished project nearly ruined him iinan eiallv, but, despite the “I told thee sos” and doleful shakes of the head that he. en countered from his friends, he was not dismayed, but remained, as ever, his wife's best friend. The whirligig of time brought all tilings right, and to-day the doctor and her husband are coniparative |v wealthily—and all through her efforts. At one tinie she used eleven horses a day, which she drove herself, in earning an annual income of $20,000. THE WOMAN PIONEER. ‘•For nine months after my graduation,” she said, “1 was the only female physician bold enough to hang out my shingle, and even when others, encouraged by my move, followed mv example we could not 11 hud a druggist who would compound our prescriptions. 1 recall a case by way of illustration. Ali tend who was ill de sired me to attend her. 1 prescribed for her. and calling next day found her much worse. 1 could uot understand the cause, ud asked it mv medicine had been ad ministered as directed. “The druggist w ould not fill the pre scription,’ was lhe answer; ‘he said it was written by a woman and was good fornothiug anyway.’ "1 asked my friend if sbe was still will ing to trust to my treatment, and upon receiving an affirmative answer I visit id the drug store lu question and pur chased a small quantity of the necessary drugs, compounded the prescription, and tie medicine was administered to my patient, w ho, it is needless to say, recov ered.” Dr. Longshore had a large and lucrative practice. During the last few years she has allowed much of it to drop, as the hard work was telling on her health, and now retainsoniy as much as shecan comforta blv attend to.

A Bishop Points to Hide and Hospi tably Entertains Him. Prom the Cincinnati Kiu/uircr. On my arrival at Eehi I was directed, as usual, to the Bishop’s house for enter tainment. Happing at the door, 1 was soon confronted by a large, heavily built, broad-shouldered fellow, who asked me, in anything hut polite language, what 1 wanted. 1 informed him that 1 desired entertainment for the night. “Where are you from?” “California, sfr.” “Where are you going?” “South,” 1 answered. After plying me with a few more questions of a similar nature he invited me in. On entering the house he turned to me and said: “Do you see that rifle up there?” Looking up to the point indicated I saw one of those long, murderous rifles, com monly called Mississippi rifles, resting snugly upon the antlers ot a Rocky moun tain buck. 1 told him that 1 saw it, and much admired the artistic manner of hanging it. “Well, mister, that is our lawmaker. When any one comes among us and com mits any dirt we do not hesitate for one moment to use it. Now, listen to me. 1 am the Bishop of this settlement. 1 have two wives and several daughters. Now, if you can promise me not to speak to, or even look at, any of my women folks, you are welcome to remain over night. Keep your eye on that rifle and mind what 1 told you. Can you do it?” It was a mighty hard job. but I first told him that 1 was at his command, and if it was his honest desire, why, of course, I would obey bint. At that time he bade me follow him into an adjoining room, where his family was assembled. I was dimly conscious that there were several females seated around the tire. He drew up a chair for me and hade me be seated. Turning to the women, he gave them or ders to prepare supper, he himself taking my orders lor what 1 wished. All this time l dared not turn my head or look toward any one but the Bishop. 1 knew that his eyes were upon me, and that bis two wives and daughters were studying me closely. I was greatly em barrassed, but withal managed to dispose ot a hearty supper, at the conclusion of which we "again returned to the sitting room. It was by this time quite durk, and his son. a large, athletic fellow, com ing in, the Bishop told him to entertain me, aud, at the proper time, show me to bed. Putting on his overcoat and a fur cap, for it was quite cold, he bade me good-night, saying that he was compelled to attend a ward meeting. Before clos ing the door he pointed to the rifle over head and said: “Remember, young man, what I told you.” It was positively unkmd of him to re mind me of it, for the confounded old gun was constantly on my mind. 1 had seen some little of their treacherous work, and bad heard much more. I knew what they w ere capable ol doing, and, under the cir cumstances, dared not disobey his warn ing. The door closed aud he was gone. The ladies were seated on my right, the son on my left. To make assurance doubly sure, 1 turned my back to the la dies, and, facing the young man, entered into a conversation with him. One of the ladies got up and went to the door several times. Finally she came up behind me and bluntly asked if I was a Mormon. I hardly knew what to do. I had been warned against speaking to or even look ing at any of the women. Wus she try ing to draw me Into trouble? She cer tainly knew that I had been forbidden to address her under the penalty of death. Yet there she stood, calmly inviting me to my late. The young man’s eyes were upon me. Great beads of perspiration started out on my forehead. “Do not fear to speak, young man; he has gone, and will not return before mid night,” sbe said, and at that she laid her hand on my head. “It’s all right, si ranger,” said the son. “It’s all right; speak up and look around you as much as you please. I’ll vouch for your safety.” The ice was now broken, and, turning to the old lady, 1 said that 1 was not a Mormon. “Thank God for that!” she said, and then the conversation became general. I was told all about the heartaches and suf ferings of the first or original wile; how in almost every case they had been de luded into joiniog the Mormon faith un der false pretenses; what shame aud mor tification came over them when it was lound out that a second or third wile was to betaken into the household. 1 was rather reticent, and did not express my opiuion on the subject as I otherwise would have done. The two daughters were comely and lull of life. About 10 o’clock they hid me good-night and re tired. A half hour later 1 was conducted to my room by the young man. Ascending a pair of stairs and entering the door to my right 1 was somewhat amazed to find myself In the bed chamber of the young ladies, who had by tbls time retired. Their lamp was still burning, and, having forgotten all previous warn ings, 1 allowed my eyes to roam at will around the room, und naturally they rested on two dimpled faces benealh snowy caps. As 1 wasenjoylng the scene l was brought to a realization ol my posi tion by the deep tones ol the young man, who said: “This wav, nlease,” and taking me by the arm pointed to a bed in an ad joining room, remaiking, “You will sleep tin*re.” The rooms were connected by a double doorway. The doors bad been dispensed with, aud, consenuenlly, we were virtu ally in the same room. I was soon snugly slowed away, and as naught divided us nut an imaginary door my courage re vived. Situated "as I was, 1 began to an alyze my feelings. Here I was in the house of strangers. True, one head of the family had lorhlddeu ine to bold any < i>m nmnicutlnn with the other part, while the other part of the fuinily hail vetoed the first Injunction, and 1 had obeved them both. Hero was certainly confidence. It struck me that the young ladles were ex ceedingly vivacious, ns they kept up a constant titter, aud their murmurlngs of soft nothings were somewhat embarrass ing to my sensitive nature. 1 was just beginning to congratulate mvaell on hav ing so much confidence reposed In me by my host, when what was uty astonish ment to see the young man dragging a mattress into tho doorwav and tusking bis bed there. As be was going to lie down he drew forth a l**riic-*i*ed ***• shooter, and. placing lb under his pillow, lay down to sleep. 1 was virtually under arrest. There be lay between me and liberty.

Benares 'fired of Her Sacred Monkeys and Anxious io be Ittd of Them. From the London 'Mcjrtiph. A railway company in India has de clined to carry 10,000 monkeys. Most railway companies probably would. That such an undertaking, however, should ever have been suggested to a board of directors is a curious incident in railway history, yet it is the fact. The Brahmans of Benares, being anxious to get rid of several thousand superfluous monkeys, askod the company to carry them away lor them to a dlstantTspot, but tho railway authorities showed no enthu siasm in closing with tho offer of such a multitude of singular passengers. It is a matter of common knowledge that in Benares, the “City ot the Gods,” there is a very large and very sacred eolony of monkeys. Not only have they a temple, properly lurnished with shrines and priests, specially dedicated to them, but they are free of all the others besides. In Benares they can go where they like, and, although this liberty is qualified by a cer tain measure gif respectful opposition when they abuse their privileges too out rageously, the iuoukeys are virtually lree of the whole city, private dwellings and public buildings. Thus circumstanced, with every favorable condition tor lon gevity in individuals and fecundity in tho species, it is no wonder that the four handed lolk have become redundant. Even the Brahmans themselves have at last confessed that there are too many monkeys in Benares, aud are now trying to rid "themselves of a portion of the In tolerable burden of sanctity which such a host ol reverend quadrupeds imposes upon them. The common people, in spite of the sacredness ot the creatures, have long ago begun to think that so large a population of idlers has its unsatisfactory side, and, when we recollect that a monkey will every day eat and waste as much grain or fruit as an average Hindu requires for his weekly sustenance, and that the mischief iu which these creatures pass their time — having nothing else, poor bored divinities, to do—must entail a substantially appre ciable loss upon their human tellow-oiti zens, it is not difficult to sympathize with lhe ape-ridden men and women of the Holy City. Without contributing in any way to the material welfare of the sacred place, these animals, 20,000 or so, consti tute a very serious tux upon the working population and divert from other charities a vast quantity of good food. Each hand ful of grain which a monkey wastes would suffice for the meal of a mendicant fakir. At last, therefore, it has been de cided to take steps to reduce the tailed population. The monkey, however, is at all times an intelligent person. He knows as well as anybody else when he is well off. lu Beuares he is especially contented, l’leuty ol good water, utillmited vegeta bles, fruit and grain, delightfully shady nooks, verandas, temple corridors, etc., commend themselves to him us a combi nation of attractions uot to he easily matched elsewhere. So that he scouts all suggestions of emigration. Onceor twice the pious and benevolent old Rajah has invited the loui-haudcd hosts to come across tbe river from the city to his palace of Kamnuggur, aud the priests have actually ferried boat load alter boatload from one bank of the Ganges to the other. But the mon keys pretended to misunderstand the ar rangement. They affected to think the trip a mere outing—a day’s picnic. So, though they allowed themselves to he taken over iu the morning with the ut most complacency, they always insisted on being brought back again in the even ing. Bouts ply in large numbers upon the river, aud without asking for permis sion or offering to pay anything, they used to ship themselves as passengers and re turn to sleep in the city. On another occasion certain lands a short distance off were specially set apart by the princely Rajah for their mainten ance, and au immense number of the ani mals were respectfully conducted to their new quarters and invited to settle there. But no; the monkeys found that there were no sweetmeat stalls out in the fields, no cake shops in tbe groves, and they courteously yet firmly declined the Rajah’s proffered hospitality, and came strolling hack into the city at their leisure. They bad tasted tbe pleasures of a rural life, and deliberately arrived at the conclusion that they preferred those of the town; so theygave up the corn fields and mango trees for "the coot courts of the many templed cily and the bazaars where lollipops were always to be bad lor the stealing. The presout effort, however—this of deporting liv train to such a distance as Saharun piire so large a number as 10,000—is by far the most serious that has been made, and if the four-handed ones submit to he deported this time they must make up their minds for permanent exile. Rail way companies have no superstitions about Hanuman; they do not worship monkeys. Thus, unless the animals are prepared to pay their own return fare, and to travel back in a respectable and honest manner, they will have to bid fsrt well to the beautiful old city where they spent such banpy years, and where their bones will now have no chance of sa credly reposing after deuth. There is no chance of their ever finding their way back. WOMEN VESTRYMEN. Bishop Steyens Decides That They Can Serve as Such. From the Philadelphia Newt. “Bishop Stevens has decided that wo men are eligible to election upon ves‘ tries,” said Rev. Dr. John A. Childs’ Secretary of the I*. K. Church, in tbe Eastern diocese of I’cnnsylvunia, to a re. porter Thursday afternoon. “The quos. tion came before the Bishop in connec tion with the cases of Mis. M. C. H, Baker and Vlnnie Graff, who were elected to the vestry of St. Luke's Episcopal church,atCbadd’s Ford. Delaware county, and after consulting with counsel he has decided that women have a perfect right to act on vestries ot tho church. Bishop Stevens has not given an opinion saying tha be thinks this desirable—he only de- Clares it to be lawDil. ••So far as I know no women have been elected to the vestry In the history of the I*. E. church, but I do not antlcl pate many more elections ol the same sort. Ido not, for example, suppose that Trinity church will elect vestry women in the near future. Such cases tnav occur again In this country, but they will be in small outlying churches, as In the Chadd’s Ford case, and only where there are few men. ln England aunh elections are not at all likely to occur, forth* veatrie* there are very different from ours. “While I have not made up iny mind as to the expediency of electing women to our veatrtes, I can readily believe that many of our clergymen may be opposed to it as an Innovation. The experience of women does not fit them to engage in im portant and intricate busincas tranaac tinns; so while they may have all the nat ural ability required,to decide questions oi finance, they have llttlgr of th knowl edge that comes from experiment. “The matter in the Chadd'a Ford case hinged entirely upou the church charter. It was a question whether the charter al lowed tha election of women in the ves try, and when It whs submitted to Bishop Stevens, he gave it vary oarelut considera tion. There Is nothing in tha canons of the church that prohibits this, so it Is only a question aa to tha right given women in tbe charters of individual eburobea.” MOW THTBXLF, hy rtMioi tha nre at Life.'' tho lies' medical work **r published, lor lOIU4 aud atiddtc- Aged msa. CHARGES UIHBY’S MARRIAGE. A Romance that Began ln the New York Inebriate Asylum. From the Meu> York World. On Monday, April 27, there disappeared from uis home in Chicago Mr. Charles A. Libby, a well-known businessman of that, city. Mr. Libby was tho manager of the Chicago branoh of the New York firm of James L. Libby & Cos., shirt manufactu rers, and although he was a man who had at one tifiie been of intemperate hahitsi his business reputation was so good that nobody connected his disappear ance with any possible shortage of his accounts, and au examination of the books showed that no suspicions ol irregularity could attach to him. Mrs. Libby asserted that there had been nothing in tbe manner of her husband previous to his disappearance to warrant the idea that he hud become deranged, and it was generally believed that lie had fallen a victim to foul play. On May 7 tho wife of tbe missing man, who daily from tbe date of her husband’s disappearance had made the rounds of tbe hospitals and morgues of Chicago in hopes of tidings of her husband, committed suicide by swal lowing a dose of carbolic acid. It was the seventh anniversary of bor marriage. Every night after putting her two little children to bed she had walked the floor of her apartments, refusing to take any rest and scarcely taking a mouthful of nourish ment. She died iu intense agony, and while frantically calling upon her hus band to return. A few days after the death of Mrs. Lib by it was reported that Libby’s where abouts had become known to his friends, and that be had been placed in an inebri ate asylum near Boston. Nothing more definite has since been heard by ttie pub lic, but the following details of his courtship of the unhappy lady, for whose death bo seems to have been responsible, were obtained yesterday by a reporter who encountered in the hospital at Ward’s island Mr. C. rl. Stanley, tin Englishman, who was for ten years Secretary to the British Consul Gen eral, and is a phenomenally clever chess and wlust player. Ho bus made his home for several yetirs pasl at the lleinieoputbic hospital ou Ward’s island, paying a small sum yearly lor his support. “I have neen deeply pained,” said Mr. Stanley, “to hear ot the misfortunes which have overtaken poor Libby. 1 first met him twelve years ago. It whs at Biughampton. He was a remarkably engaging man and a fiuo whist player. Seven years ago 1 met him again lu this institution, which was then an asylum for inebriates. We were fellow-boarders and tho sHtue trouble affected us both. He had been on a protracted spree and came here to get over its effects. He had scarcely any clothes. 1 rigged him out. Among the nurses was a Miss Nellie Tompkins, was an exceedingly ay mpatbetic soul. I introduced Libby to her. She alteuded him and he fell in love with her. She was a sister of one of the physicians on the stall. It was, in tact, only a few weeks after he first met her that Libby became engaged to his pretty nurse. •‘He bad no money, but his friends wore rich. lie left tbe hospital and Miss Tompkins gave up her positiou at the same time. They were married in New York. Six weeks afterwards 1 met him. He was very sedate and cautioned me to be a good boy. I n#ver saw him after wards. I don’t believe he is dead. Ho may have been on a ‘bender’ and may be working it off in some such institution as this.” PHANS FOR A UREMATORY. A Beautiful Chapel aud Kuruaue to be Krecteil In the ltuaher City. From the Philadelphia Record. A crematory to cost $40,000, and to lie situated within ample grounds in this city is to lie erected this fall. The scheme is in the hands of a stock company, of which Dr. Berthold Trout man is President, and suffi cient money has been subscribed to in sure tbe successs of the plan. Eleven acres ot ground near Manayunk have been secured, and the plans for the build ings are now being drawn by William Gette, the architect. * These plans contemplate a beautiful chapel, after the old Greek style, the pilasters, bases, columns and arenitraves to be of granite, and the walls of liriuk. The roof will be surmounted by a cupola, and both covered with copimr. The build ing will be 100 feet by 0 feet. The cupola will be surmounted by an angel of peace, 15 feet high, of solid bronze. Within the walls of this beautiful struct ure will be a chapel roomy enough to ac commodate a large funeral party. The catafalque upon which the coffin will rest during the ceremonies will be so ar ranged that when the services are over it eati be lowered to the floor beneath, upon which will be the crema tory furnace. This will be manufactured by T’hillips, and will be what Is known as au incinerating furnace,with regenerating gas tiring, it will he large enough to burn two bodies at once. The cremstory room will be U* feet high, and supplied with every possible convenience. Upoti tbe chapel floor there will be a chamber for the reception of the dead; and In order that the relatives may lie convinced that life Is really extinct the apartment will be provided with electrical appliances, so that the slightest movement in the coffin will sound an alarm to tno watchman. Hero the corpse may remain for three days, if thought necessary. Within tbe cha|>el there will lie 10,00 u places of sepulchre for the ashes of the cremated dead. The grounds will he laid out in keeping with the buildings which are to be erected, and there will lie lots laid off for the burial of the dead, as in other cemeteries, so that that those who dislike the Idea of cremation may bury their friends in tbe orthodox way. Avery large number ol influential gentlemen are interested in the scheme. PROTECTING THE MONUMENT. Nclvntlsts Kern ii iin end luk Precautions Against Damage by Lightning. From the Waehltn/tott Star, Profs. Rowland, Newcomb and Menden hall, tbe committee ot scientist* who ex amined the roof of the Washington monu ment sfter it had licen struck liy light ning, with a view of recommending addi tional precautions to prevent the recur rence of aucb an accident, have submitted their report to Uol. Uasey. and it has been suhmlttel by him to the joint commission of the monument for action. The com mittee are of tbe opinion that tbe only i precaution necessary to protect tho structure is an ample supply oi lightning rod points on the roof of tbe monument. Col. Casey anticipated tbe report and had copper rods placed above the hips of the roof with twonty-elght needle points | projecting from them. Tbe committee ' recommend that the entire roof lie covered i with these points, which are invisible from the ground, that a copper rotl enolr-' cle the roof at every point, from which these points shall project, and that the whole number of the point* shall he two hundred, making one hundred and seventy-two additional. Tbe outside rods and points are to be connected with the interior apparatus, so that there shall he an uninterrupted course to the ground. The test* of tbe reelatnnoe of the Interior apparatus to the passage of electricity proved It* capacity, so, that with the additional roof proteotloo, damage to the monument from lighting. It I* thought, would be out ot tbe question. The nw ommendattone of the committee will prouahly be carried into effect at au early day. SHcDirai. CATARRH.

Without the slightest faith in t. but solely to gratify her, I Isxiglit a bottle of a druggist in our village. I used that and two or three bottles more, and—to make a long story short—l am now as healthy a man as there is in the eouutry. “Since then I have recommended ‘Favorite Remedy’ toothers whom I know to have suf fered from Kidney and Liver complaints; and I assure the public that lhe ‘Favorite Reme dy’ has done Us work with a similar com pleteness in every single Instance, and I trust some other sick and discouraged mortal may hear of it and try the ‘Favorite Remedy,’ as I did.”— Waehinyton Monroe, CatelciU, N. >'.

I deem It only my duty to give this unsolicited teslimonv in favor of Swift's Specific. -My wife has been afflicted with Fcr.enm from iu fancy. We tried every known remedy, but to u ' avail. Sbe was also afflicted with’n peri odical nervous headache, sometimes followed by au intermittent fever, so that her life be came a burden to her. Finally I determined to try Swift’s Specific. Sbe commenced seven weeks ago. After taking the first large bot tle the (liseaie seemed to increase; the burn ing, itching and inflammation became un bearable. Mio. however, imreevered in the ■lee of the medicine. After taking the second bottle tbe inflammation begun to subside. After the third liottle the inllaiinnation dis appeared. and sore spots dried up and turned white und scaly, and tlnallv fho brushed them off in an impalpable white powder resembling pure salt. She is now taking the sixth bottle: every apiiearsnec of ttie disease 1* gone, end her flesh is soft aud white as a'child’s. Iter headaches have disappeared and she enjoys tlie onb good health -lie ha- known in to veHr,. No wonder she deems every bottle of 8. 8. B.l* worth a thousand times its weight in gold. Any further Information concerning her ca e will lie cheerfully given by herself at her residence. 185 Mullett street, or liy me. JOHN F BRADLEY. (4 Griswold St. Detroit, Mich., May 16, 1K9.1.
