Mrs. Amy Cousins Dies at Age of
104 Years. S
The funeral of Amy Cousins, who. it is
claimed. lived to be 1<>4 years old. and
who died Wednesday at the residence of G
Mrs. Florence Bass, one of her many p
granddaughters, at 244 Kearney street, i
lenteytown. was held this afternoon at 2 e
o'clock. tl
Mrs. Cousins was born in Albemarle a
county. Va.. June 11. 1805. She served
many masters during slavery times, prominent
among them being Thomas JeflTer- n
son. a family named Fleming and Miss "
l.izzie Webb. Twenty-five years ago she e
was in poor health and alone in Virginia, ^
and Edward Warren, her son-in-law,
brought her to this city and kept her until
about two months ago. when she took R<
up her residence with Mrs. Bass. y
Mrs Cousins has hardly known what It rr
was to be really ill She had little "spells" t<
occasionally, but had been fortunate in li
escaping the more serious diseases. Even n
toward the end. it is said, she did not ap- w
pear to be in 111 health, and it is claimed r<
that she "just naturally faded away."
It was noticed several days ago that her
appetite was not up to the mark and that
she kept to her room, but, a* she made
no complaint, nothing was thought of it. C
The past two or three days she was con- a
fined to her bed. "
Mrs. Cousins' children, two In number. were
buried by her several years ago.
Eight grandchildren and eleven greatgrandchildren
survive her.
The funeral services were held at the _

SEEKS A DETECTIVE'S PLACE
VIRGINIA SLEUTH APPLIES AT
POLICE HEADQUARTERS.
Says He Recovered a Widow's Cow
and the Constable's Pig and Believes
He Can Catch Criminals.
"I'm a detective," announced a tall, lean,
!anky individual, who pave his home adIress
as Mount Jackson, Virginja, when
tic walked Into police headquarters late
resterday afternoon, "and I want to set
? Job on the detective force in Washington."
The man approached Clerk Phillpps and
iegan to tell him of his wonderful ability
is a thief catcher, but as the clerk was
mslly engaged in entering records of the
ietectlves of this city, he referred ttie
.Mcltne In TUtfoof li-n Vfitllon 11a r?*H
:hat although he had never been a poiceman
or a detertlve he had been able
0 locate and recover considerable live
dock and money which had been stolen
;rom residents of Mount Jackson.
Success as a "Sleuth.'*
When asked what he wanted, he said:
"I have lived In Mount Jackson all my
ife, working for the most part on the
arm, and at times attended school and
jot a good education. In the past
rears I recovered a widow's row, a conitable's
pig and my unele's horse, which
tad been stolen, and also ran down severil
chicken Ihlevcs. As I got tired of the
arm work and wanted to make lots of
noney, I thought that as J had done such
;ood detective work in the country I
.ould be able to get a job In Washington."
Detective Mullen, however, explained to
he applicant that he would have to serve
n the police force before he could become
. detective. The visitor said he did not
1 ant to do that, as he wanted to do deeetlve
work. He asked where lie could
;et a job with the secret service, and
ihen told thai he would have to apply to
'hief Wilkie at he Treasury Department,
le started for the door to go there, hut
detective Mullen noticed something bulgng
from the "detective's" hip pocket and
ailed htm back.
Lunch in His Hip Pocket.
"Did you bring your gun with you?"
sked Detective Mullen. "No. sir." replied
he visitor, "that is a bottle of coffee.
V'hen I left home I thought I would get
ungry, so I got a milk bottle and put
ome coffee in it and also wrapped some
andwiches in a newspaper, which I ate
t'hile coming here."
Before leaving Mount Jackson the Vir- |
inian had bought a suit of clothes at j
be village store and a new hat, but from,
he appearance of his shoes, he had used |
hem considerably while plowing, before
aking the trip to tins city.
He left headquarters with Chief Wilkie's
a me, written on a piece of paper, declarig
that he would surely get a job with
he secret service, if the police departtent
did not want him in the service in
his city. The "detective" left without diulgtng
his name, and consequently Maj.
ylvester will be unable to locate him if
e is wanted to run down thieves in the
dstrlct.

Bouillebaisse.
'o the Editor of The Slar:
Has the palate of the President-elect
een tickled with the taste of the genuine
oulllebaisse? The toothsome recipe of
le dish served at New Orleans calls for
ut two Kinds of fish. whereas the classial
bouillebaisse of Marseille calls for
hirteen. This is historic. A certain lmecunious
lieutenant of artillery, known
iter as Napoleon I, begged for the hand
f the daughter of a worthy merchant of
larseille. the practical shopkeeper howrig
aside the suitor s protestations of the
irilliancy of his future prospects, quietly
emarked: j
"To make a boulllebaisse, thirteen
inds of tish are necessary, and it is
ather doubtful if your pay would suffice
or even two."
later on, when Napoleon I, emperor,
isited Marseille, he took occasion to let
he worthy shopkeeper know that he was
iow in a position to buy the eleven missng
Ingredients, and even to provide the
vhole thirteen.
Such is the littleness of great men. Was
t St. Francis de Sales who said that selfove
does not die till a quarter of an hour
ifter death?
Back to our muttons! Has Mr. Taft
asted a boulllebaisse? Even poor bouilleaisse!
