The October Romance, which contains its usual quota of ten choice stori-js for a dime, has for its special feature a group of Folk-Lore lalea. Rand, McNally &. Co., Chicago, have in press the copyright edition of a new novel entitled "The liinh of a Soul" by Mrs. A. Phillips, author of "jta Pro poses." Stephen Crane, one of the younsrer story writers of realistic tendencies who is winning a place for himnelf in con temporary fiction, baa a good short stnry in the October Arena called "lie Man in the Storm." Mr. Cran is a di-covery of Hamlin Garland and W. D. Hovveiis, and this story is full of etreth and promise. The complete novel in the October number of Lippiacott's is "A Question of Courage," by Franci3 Lynde. it deals with a feud in the mountiius of Tennes see, and the questioa of the northern hero's courage, after sundry doubts j.nd adventures, is settled to tho hero's own satisfaction and that of the heroine. -Mr. Lynde is a recently "discovered'' author, but he knows how to toil a story. The Popular Science Monthly for Oc tober closes its forty-fifth volume with an issue of marked and varied excellence.

Richards sets forth the many advantage! of the game, and maintains that the evils ascribed to it are unreal or ca:i be re moved by changes soon to be introduced. Prof. James Suiiy contributes the third of his "Studies of Childhood" to this number, taking up "The Questioning Age," and giving a vivid picture of thv curious gropings of a child's miuds for knowledge. Among the immediately forthcoming issues of Lovell, Coryeli it Co., of iew York, are a series of new and attractive editions of the "Masterpieces of English Literature," richly illustrated with half tone engravings and photogravure copies of high-art pictures, including famous battle scenej, interiors of Roman house holds, great historical pageants, together with portraits of royal personages, states men, and the great leaders of thought iu the domains of science, literal ire and art. A writer, U. T. Ndwcomb, in the Octo ber Forum givaa some startling figures concerning the number of railroads re cently placed in the hands of receivers. He says: "During the decade from tho beginning of 3 SSI to the end of l'Ji, 7-i,-3-lsi miles of railway, operated by 311 in dependent corporations, and cat. italizo 1 at $3,S53,37 1,000, passed from the control of stockholders iato that of receivers. Of this total, 29,47a ruil.53 (i) per cent of the mileage), capitalized at $ l,7o,S3G, 000 (46 per cent of capital), was placed in charge of receivers during the year ending December 31. 1893. The entire railway mileage operated by re ceivers on that date was 40, 279, and the par value of its stocks and bonds 2,217,000,000, constituting 23 per cent and '21 per cent respectively of the total railway mileage and capital in the United States. During 1S'J3, twenty-five railways, operating 1.G13 miles of road, and represented by $79,924,000 of capital stocks and bonds, were sold under fore closure, while the number thus sold dur ing eighteen years from 1870 to ISiiS in clusive was 511, their aggregate length 57,X.'S3 miles, and their capitalization '$3, 209,120,000. The crop of foreclosu.es that must inevitably follow the enormous number of receiverships created during IH'J'2 is not yet ready for harvest. When its data become available they will afford an appalling presentation of ti;e financial condition of a large portion of our rail way system." The frontispiece of McClureV Maga zine for October shows Mr. Charles A. Dana, the all-pervading guiding spirit of the X ew York "Sun," at wuri in his editorial office. And the opening article is a very comprehensive stu ly of Mr. Dana's career, from the time when he began life as a grocer's cleric, catching up a bit of schooling as he went along, down through his connection with Brook Farm, his long aervico on the Is'ow York "Tribune" under Greeley, his important service during the war as assistant secre tary of war under Lirjcoln an 1 Stanton, and his more than twenty years' editor ship of "The Sua."

The First and Only Female Attorney Tn Ja pan A Protegee of Frances AV 11 lard and J-ady Somerset A Woman In Whoa, Women Will Interested. Special Correspondence.! San Fkancisco, Sept. 29. An inter esting fignre now in Japan, in -whos career many Americans, especially mem bers of the Woman's Christian Temper ance union, are deeply concerned, is that of Miss Tel Sono, recently a resident ol the United States, bnt at present prac ticing law in Tokyo, the first and onlj woman lawyer in her native country. The early part of Tel Sono's life is replete with enough romance to fill a novel. Her ancestors were of high de scent and wealthy. Her grandl'ather. TEL SONO. Sloan Waka Sono, who lived in Nagoya, was a religions philosopher so devout that when more than 50 years old he built a special room for prayer, whither he would resort and pray for hours, "looking toward heaven and ringing a bell which he held in his right hand." An Avail in Prayer. LTer father was a physician as well as poot, aud marrying the daughter of one of tho local governors removed to Tokyo, wheie he practiced medicine. One of her brothers is also a doctor, and her eister established the first 6chool for women in their native place. Even in childhood she rebelled against the wor ship of idols so prevalent among her people, but the had no idea of Christi anity or a Creator beyond the belief that there must be some true God who dwelt in the sky and was superior to every human power. In illustrating this feeling, Tel Sono, when here, related the following incident. She said: "When I was 14 years old, my father fell sick, and it was thought he could not live more than two or three days. I felt bo sad that I determined to pray to the true God for my father's life, and tak ing my best friend, Otama, with me into tho garden near a well I asked her to help me. "Now, the ceremonies connected with prayer for tho life of a friend were very solemn and awful, involving the sacri fice of the suppliant's life for that of the sick person, if necessary. First the hair was cut off and offered as a sacri fice, the most precious which could be offered. Then the body was stripped and cold w ater poured over it to purify it and make prayer acceptable. Taking a razor, I cut off my hair close to the ecalp and hung it under a tree. Next I took off all my clothing, and throwing it on the grass seated myself on a board by tho well. Otama then poured buckets of water over my entire body. I shook so at first that I couldn't utter a word of prayer, but after awhile began to find my speech. Otama listened, and just as I was uttering the last sentence cried aloud. This attracted my grandmother's attention, who, taking a lighted candle, hurried with a nurse into the garden. When they saw me, they were shocked. The nurse, wrapping tho clothes around me, carried me to the house and put me by tho fire. Grandmother looked in my face, put her hand on my head and whispered something to the nurse. Then they began to cry. I think they must have thought I had gone crazy. "About midnight I went softly through tho hall to my father's sick room and heard someone laugh. "That is my mother's voice, " I paid. "God has heard my prayer and made my fa ther better, or mother would not be laughing. " And so it proved. An Exemplary Life. At the ago of 19 Tel Sono was mar ried to one of the officers of tho court, but he became dissipated, and with a little daughter she returned to the home of her father. Here she established a free school for the poor and taught in it for three years, meanwhile pursuing the study of the law. Having fitted herself for the profession, she moved to Tokyo and there entered upon its practice, which she continued for 12 years. It Was a period when many things new to the country the telegraph, steam en gines, railway . cars, electricity and photography were being introduced into Japan, but there was nothing more wonderful or strange than the presence of this woman lawyer in the courts. During much of this time she was brought in' close. contact with the poor, especially the unfortunate of her own gex, and she determined to visit Amer ica and learn the enstoms of a people among whom woman stands on a level with man in order that, returning to Ja pan, she might be the means of elevating and educating the women of her own people. Reaching San Francisco in Jan nary, 18S6, her first experience was the failure of the Bank of Japan, in which all of her money was deposited; but, philosopht rlike, she accepted the loss as a dispensation of providence and an in dication that she must gain her experi ence in America by hard work. Not knowing a word of the English lan guage, her situation was a difficult one, but she bravely met it by undertaking housework oa a California farm. Of V t- -j w v ry-'Si ? cooting she knew nothing. Baking pow der was a mystery and an American bake oven an unknown device. In ten days, however, under the kind tuition of her mistress, her biscuits were no longer burned to cinders, and she began to be nsefnL She studied English until long after midnight, and in a few months surprised her friends with a translation of the third and fourth read ers. Wishing to know how to make Amer ican dresses, Tel Sono next went to live with a dressmaker, and here her bright ness as well as purpose in life quickly secured many friends. In passing through this educational experience she lived in no less than 16 homes, in each adding to the sum of her useful knowl edge. Finally she entered a young la dies' classical school, embraced Christi anity, was baptized and became a mem ber of the Japanese Methodist Episcopal church, although at first it was far from the purpose of Tel Sono to adopt the re ligion of this country. She was also a active coworker in the Woman's Chris tian Temperance nnion of San Francisco. More cultivated and experienced than many Americans, possessed of executive abilities of a high order and withal a tireless worker, Miss Frances E. Wil lard and Lady Somerset have long rec ognized her worth as a coadjutor, and thousands of our sex in the United States and England are watching earnestly the results of her endeavors in Japan. Mrs. Arthur Oceli. A FAMOUS PLAINSMAN. For Tnirty Tears He Baa Keen Scout, Hunter and Indian Trader. Special Correspondence. Wichita, Kan., Oct. 4. Among the noted characters of the frontier whose names will be always connected with the development of the west is William Matthewson of this city, who since 1855 has been prominent in connection with tho wresting from the red man of the fertile acres which are becoming bo important a part of Uncle Sam's great empire. In 1860, during tho great suffering in the west because of drought, he formed companies to go out and shoot buffaloes that then roamed in great herds over the prairies. So proficient did he be come that he was called Buffalo Bill by the settlers and was the original of that picturesque title. He was a man of peace, not c dime novel recklessness, and for many years he was a trusted government agent in negotiation of trea ties with the Kiowa, Comanche, Apacho and Arapahoe Indians. He concluded a treaty with all these tribes in 1805 that has never been broken, and so thorough ly did he win their confidence that he was allowed ever after to come and go and to trade at will within the reserva tions of these tribes. In 1865 he pre-empted a quarter sec tion of land on the site of the present city of Wichita. His log house yet stands and attracts much attention. It is on the banks of a little stream named Chisholrn creek for the eccentric cattle trader, John Chisholm, who in 1868 rode ahead of his herd up through the Indian Territory and broke out the first - m J A V x WILLIAM MATTHEWSON". cattlo trail from the Texas ranch lands to the northern feeding and shipping stations. Mr. Matthewson had many desperate encounters with the Indians in those days, but he seemed to bfara charmed life, and when he united himself to any of the numerous emigrant trains that were wending their way over the tortu ous Santa Fe trail it was always with the result that they were guided across the plains in safety. Once he and five of his men were at tacked by 600 Indians at his ranch near this place. Through effective barricad ing the redskins were held at bay for three days and were finally repulsed, upon which the Indians attacked a large wagon train. Here 300 men, women and children were in peril, and the par ty with difficulty held back the fero cious enemy. When they were about to be overcome, Matthewson, the scout, like another Sheridan, came galloping through the Indians' lines and into the settlers' midst. He was hailed with cheers, and a new courage seemed to animate the besieged because of his ap pearance. The Indians were finally compelled to withdraw, and victory came with the approach of night to the wearied immigrants. The Indians left them, and the train camped in safety for some days to recuperate its strength. As a testimonial of his services on this occa sion Mr. Matthewson was presented with a magnificent pair of pistols", with silver mounted ivory handles, made more costly by gold trimmings. He has cherished them among his many inter esting souvenirs of frontier life. Mr. llatthewson is now 62 years old, a courteous and kindly gentleman, with largo investments in New Mexico and Kansas. He has little liking for notori ety, though he is not reticent regarding his many famous exploits. Early fron tier history would lack a considerable portion of its most striking features were the record of his work stricken from it. C. M.
