he wont to Doc for treatment. The
news spread Ilka wildfire. Joc locked
f bis office door nnd llio boys stood out-
Idc awaiting developments. 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.
H you inform Bill Askins thet I'm Red
Riley, and he'll tell you why.,"

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. Margaret Bront,

of the suffering and danger in Btore for her, robs the expectant mother

however, won her case. 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. Austin, Tex.; and was
admitted to the New York Supremo
Court at Poughkeopsic, N. Y.
