Rio Grande Hj CharJov. wiio was now .1 convert to osteopathy and an ardent admirer of Doc's, nfo'od on gunrd so there would bo HH no interruptions. Hj Rio Grande, wlio had spent all his snare time loafing with Doc, was gct ting the swine 01 his phrases, and was BB proud of it. He used them on any and every occasion, although he didn't know B what he was talking about. Even the bartender at the Black Bear had lost his mental balance over the new scioncc, and the barroom window was filled with signs advocating such fnney 1 drinks as "Vib'ratorv Cocktails-' 1 "Dorsal Twisters" and "Cervical iiiiThbniis." I' IIclpl Murder!" came a voice from within. "What's comin' off?" inquired one of the boys. Rio Grande peeped through the key hole and replied: "My view is some obstructed, but I figgcr the medical sharp is stirrin' up the cervical re gion." Bill uncorked a blood-curdling whoop that shook the building. ""William seems to be ailin' some," observed Tom Irwin. "Yes, the dorsal twistin' of the. spine is purty painful," said Jtip Grande, with the easy air of a professional. A terrific bumping followed and Bill Askins's yells for help continued to I entertain the assemblage without. Finally all was quiet and Doc llornc. with tho bosom of his shirt missing, opened the door. Tho patient, com pletely played out, was lying on the table." He m looked as if he had been traveling with a cyclone "This j'er osteopathy 'pears to be a violent pastime," ventured Rio Grande Charlev. I "In the present case it is." said Doc, shaking the perspiration from his brow. "At first our estimable friend seemed to feel chagrined about something, aud when he tried to fracture my ,iaw T. took it that he objected to 1113; treat ment. But in the interest of science I persevered, and lied to be rather severe with him. You sec he wuz sulfcrin' from ailments he didn't know he lied, and in my professional capacity I wuz compelled to go aft or him purty lively to git to the scat of tho trouble, which is mainly about the eyes." "1 notice thet his gun optic is ready to close fer repairs," remarked Elijah Rivers. 1 "Which is due to the vibratory move- Hl mcnts of the knuckles," explained the E rofessor. "Mr. Askins, however, will c a well man in twenty-four honrs." j Rio Grande Charley asked Bill how H be fell, but he was too tired to talk, H and merely waved his hand as an indica- H tion that he preferred to be left alone in his misery. It was arranged that the patient sleep that night in Doc's office. H and I lie crowd retired to the Black Bear to discuss at length tho marvels of H medical science. H Several hours after sundown I met H Doc Home unexpectedly. lie was ou H horseback aud didn't seem any more Hl pleased to sec me than if I had been a H tarantula. "Hello, Doc," I sang out cheerfully, "whore are you going?" I,' lie thought, a minute, and said: "I'm lcavin' town. I cau't make a livin' here." "1 "Doc, j'ou're an imposfcr, " T rc 1 marked frankly, "and don't know the difference between osteopathy and a hot dog sandwich. You mastered a lot of technical terms and disguised your solf to look like a cross-roads medical man. But you're a fakir from the hair 1 dye to tho "circus clothes, and although "n I said nothing, I had your measure from '1 the first day 1 saw you." Doc laughed with glee as he said: "Well, Hank, you're the only one in canip who guessed it." m "You had but one purpose in gefc I ting Bill Askins in your office, and I that was to spraddle all over him and I mako him look like the only survivor I of a massacre The fact that you I locked the door so there would be no H outside interference reveals a well con I ceived plot. Why you promoted this I gentle enterprise is one too many for H me." Doc chuckled softly. As he rode away lie looked back and said: "Well, llank.

GoocrarthicUUy, the women now on titled to appear before the United States Supreme Court are widely scat tered. Six hail from Washington, Illi nois and Wisconsin have four each, Nebraska three, Pennsylvania, Massa chusetts and California two, and Ari zona, Connecticut, Missouri, New Jer sey and Montana one each. In all ab'out one-half have personally appeared before the highest tribunal in cases. Mrs. Lockwood has appeared moro than a thousand times, while Mrs. Marilla M. Richer has probably been in the Supreme Court more often than any other woman, with the exception of Mrs. Lockwood. ' Here are some rather interesting points about theve twenty-eight women: Mrs. McCulloch is the only woman jus tice of the peace; Mrs. G onion was the first to make a public speech for woman suffrage, aud the first to own and edit a daily newspaper; Mrs. Ricker is the only woman who ever sat on the bench., with the Lord Chief Justice of England, Miss King is the only woman patent attorney, Mrs. Mussey is the only woman dean of a law college, Mrs. Lockwood is the first woman to secure equal property rights for women, Mrs. II. II. Pier Simouds is tho only woman timber estimator and expert woodsman, Mrs. Gordon was the first to introduce silk culture into California and, with Mrs. Kilgore and Mrs. Foils:, was deuicd admission to law schools because of her sex. The right of women to practice law in tho United States was bitterly con tested by their men opponents for vcars, but women like Bclva Lockwood, Laura DcForcc Gordon, Carrie Burnham Kilirore. Clara Sliortridsc Foils and Marilla M. Ricker waged the battle to a successful conclusion. In Europe women have met with varying success. They have been admitted to Chambers in London, but have never been admit ted to general practice there. France has allowed her women to practice dur ing the last decade. Italy has always admitted women to tho bar. Tn the early times Italy had women lecturers on law, especially on tho decretals and canon ical law. One woman's fame became so trrcat that she had 10,000 pupils. Three j-cars ago in Washington, a Russian woman lawyer, who had at tained the degree of master of juris prudence, lectured before tho students of the "Washington College of Law, the only college in the United Stales which has a woman dean. When Mrs. Lockwood visited Berlin in 1S96, the members of the bar there wero very curious about her and tho women lawyers in this country. In reply as to whether the' had written any books, Mrs. Lockwood replied that they had not only written laws, but had se cured their onactment. The first woman to practice law in this country was Margaret Brent. Lord Baltimore, then Governor of Maryland, asked tho Legislature that she be ap pointed executor of her relatives' es tate. One of the learned members said that it was better that the estate be , lost than a woman appear to make au argument before them.

And yet a few years after the Civil war, when Mrs. Carrie B. Kilgore applied for admission to tho law department of tho University of Pennsylvania, she was told by the thou dean, that "when niggers and women were admitted to the law school" ho would resign. Mrs. Ivilgoro herself related this incident to the writer. It is largely through the efforts of these twenty-eight women that married women throughout the country have tho guardianship of their children equally with the father, and enjoy the right to money earned by them, and women iu general have been admitted to law col leges, upon school boards, and to suf frage in many States, through the hard, persistent work of theso twenty-eight representative lawyers. Belva Lockwood, the first woman to be admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, is the dean of American women law3'ers, and, aside from the fact that on two occa sions, she was nominated by tho Equal Rights part' for tho Presidency of tho United SUitcs, is a romarkablj' able and brilliant woman. Mrs. Lockwood is in her seventy-seventh year, but her mind is as alert as ever. In fact, she is now consummating the greatest work of her life, in completing what is probably tho most important law ease ever won by a woman, tho securing of a $5,000, 000 judgment against the United States for G00O Cherokee Indians. She was graduated in the National University law school, Washington, D. C, in May, 1S73, after having been refused matric ulation in Columbia college, now George Washington university, on account of her sex. She was admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, September 23, 1S73, and at once entered into the active practice of her profession. Two years later she applied for ad mission to the United States court of claims, having an important case pend ing there, and, after ropcalod postpone ments, was refused; first, because she was a woman, and, secondly, because sho was a married woman. One year later she was proposed for admission to tho United States Supremo Court, and was refused as follows: "This appli cation is denied until there shall be a more extended public opinion in its favor, or some special legislation." The following year the Hon. Bcnj. F. Butler, at her request, introduced a' bill in tho House of Representatives for the admission of women to the United States Supremo Court. That bill was lost in tho House. In 1877, the lion. William Lawrence of Ohio introduced a bill for her relief, which was lost in committee. At the second session of this Congress, Mrs. Lockwood prepared a bill, which now stands on the statute books of tho United States, asking that "any woman of good moral character, and otherwise duty qualified, should on presentation be admitted to tho bar of the United Stales Supremo Court." This bill passed tho House by an over whelming majority at tho same session, and the following year was introduced into the Senate by Senator Sargent of California and passed that body by more than a two-thirds majority, Feb. In, 1S79. Tho bill was promptly signed by President Hayes and a few days later, March 3, 1879, Mrs. Lockwood was admitted to the bar of the United States Supremo Court, and March 10, 1S79, to tho bar of the United States Court of Claims. She has been in ac tive practice, since that time, with tho exception that from 1SS5 to 1890, sho was largely on the platform in the vari ous States of tho Union, on account of her nomination for tho Presidency. Her greatest victory in the law was in her appearance for G000 Eastern and Emigrant Cherokee Indians, first before the United States Court of Claims, and, secondly, before the United Stales Su preme Court. She was complimented for her presentation of the case beforo these courts by Chief Justice Fuller, in both instances, and Justice Brown, of the Supreme Court, said to her after ward, privately, "I was astonished I was surprised that a woman could mako such an argument as you made beforo our court.' There wore three cases consolidated as follows: The Cherokee Nation vs. the United States; the Eastern and Emi grant Chcrokccs vs. the Uuitcd Slates (Mrs. Lockwood 's case), and the East ern Chcrokccs vs. the United States all claiming tho same thing. Mrs. Lock wood and the other counsel secured a joint judgment for $1,111,284.70, with interest at 5 per cent from June 12, 1S.1S, amounting now to $5,000,000. This judgment was confirmed by the United States Supreme Court, her argument having been mainly instrumental in carrving the interest, which forms the larger part of the judgment. Mrs. Lock wood insisted that the principal was an interest-bearing fund in tho hands of the Government, which it held us trus tee and that all moneys paid out of it had carried interest. Congress appro priated "tins money in June, 190G, and Airs. Lockwood is now vcrj' busy in trying to get her G000 clients on this $G,000,000, which is being made up by a special commissioner ot the Court of Claims, Guion Miller. Mrs. Lockwood has been admitted to the Couutj' courts and United Stales Circuit courts of Maryland ami Vir ginia, to tho Supreme Court of tho latter State, to tho United States Circuit court, Western district of Texas, whero sho probated the estate of Judge Wat rous, in Galveston, and defended a not- cd criminal for robbing the United Statc3 mails at.
