After mature deliberation - she east her fortunee with the New York Lis. D She was born in Dayton, Ohio. Her father was b a banker and ape of its most prominent citi I ses. Her mother was a woman of remarkable capacity. Her husband was a prominent physt. clan and had been a surgeon in the army dar -ug the civil war.

Ma sy cczsarrL cATTLE astAXs. Many of the most successful cattle raisers and dealers of the west are women. The largest cattle ranch in the world is owned by a woman, Mrs. Richard King of an Antonio, Tex., who personally superintends the details a and management of her %ast business. Another k Texan cattle queen is Mrs. Sallie Huffman of Fort Worth, who is actively interested in a e, dozen important enterprises, and also owns and keeps a careful eye on the management of the leading paper of Fort Worth. Mrs. Huffnan is several times a millionaire, and the I-s ger part of her immense fortune has come to her as the result of her own acumen and aptitude for affairs. The wife of Bishop Warren of Colorado trebled in the cattle trade the fortune left her 1 by her first husband. Mrs. Barber of White Oaks, N. M., is manager of a ranch on which I are 8,000 head of cattle, and each year makes a I small fortune for herself and the two eategna men who are aseocia ted with her in the owrser- I ahip of the ranch. Ithe isalso half owner of a valuable silver mine, which she operates her self, and yet finds time to entertain delight fually, to paint and to play upon the piano and guitar. A woman who can do all these things surely possesses genius. Another wo- I ma cattle dealer is Mrs. Charles Rogers of j Corona Christi, Texas, whose ranch covers ser- u eral'thousand acres and patures half a million' head of cattle. The Wi'kins ranch is one of the lrethorse ranchee of Idaho. The sles from a it In the eastern markets amount to many thessanda of dollars every year. but they are %ll conducted by Miss little Wilkinm.the daugh- I tsr of the owner of the ranch, and a pretty girl of two and twenty.

During his tay in the house, says the old lady. he msed to make friends with the rats. and from the blood spattered on the wall near his bed and other indications she believen that he ate them. having maade reference at dl~erent times to that practice during the siege of Paris. 11111 DUTT ON GOOD Passia. One of the amost remarkable incidents re lated of him by the old lady is that on one Good Friday morning he suddenly disappeared. saying that he had some duty that he must per form. That niqht he returned tired and hun gry, and with his back all bloody. It was after ward leitrned that he had gone to a lamber yard, procured two pieces of lumber, ode of them over twenty feet long, from which he had made a crose. and this he had carried away be -yond the jail and planted it upright on the commons. When remonitrated with on ac count of this crazy freak he mid that he only hoped that his work would not be molested. PEERAPs OF NORLE BIRTE.

She also declares that he never beg. but s is known out of his own seanty means to have several times aided persons in distress. A win a ter or so ago one of the gentlemen at the Capi tol who knew him took pity on his ragged con dition, and outfitted him with a new suit of I clothes and a pair of shoes. but Emile in turn P gave it to some one be thought needed it more - than himself, sad returned to his old rags. i Indeed, %s regards some of his charaecteristies, i he is of an exceedingly tender nature.
