Who claims half of the personal estate
the most prominent manufacturers in St. Louis.
Before Special Commissioner TC. Scott
Hancock yesterday ilrs. Mary Alameda
Leafgreen told the story by which she
expects to prove that she was the wife of
Laclede J. Howard, a wealthy St. Lout
flre-briek manufacturer, who died in IMS.
Though vis!'" nervous, she went
through the ordeal of Ave hours of sharp
questioning by Attorney George- R. John
son, at whose, office tn the Carleton butH
tac the hearing was bad. Mr. John-on was
assMcd by Attorney Edward C. Kehr and
Mrs. Leafcreen was represented by Attor
ney John J. O'Connor.
The woman's suit Is against the estat.
of the late Laclede J. Howard. She claims
one-half of the pergonal property, ahlcia
Is valued at more tran $.. her cause
of action being- that she believe that he
was the same man to whom, she was mar
ried In ISO at Decatur. 111.
Mr. Leafgreen Is an attractive looking
woman, who appears younger than the 42
years which she acknowledges. She has
dark hair and brown eyes and drese
In excellent taste. She saya she hss Ihed
In St. Louis about three years. According
to her statements she has had a most re
markable and romantic career.
That she married a man named Howard
more than twenty jears ago la conceded,
but the heirs of the late Laclede J. How
ard scout tho Idea that this man and the
St. Louis capltallt who made thousands
of dollars In the manufacture of brick were
A most Important point not jet brought
out Is the whereabouts of taclede J. How

MEETING IN ILLINOIS.
In her testimony jesterday Mr. Leaf
green fali that she was living at Palmer.
Ill . when she f!rt met a man who was
Introduced to her as Charles Howard.
She was a schoolgirl at that time. She
met Howard at the Post Ofllce. He was
presented to ber by Charles Randall, who
has since died. Howard remained .1
Ialmer only a short time, but during his
stay he frequently vtitel her. A yi-tr
later he again appeared at Palmer. She
heard that he was a cigar maker and that
l.e worked at his trade while In the town,
but she did nut knew this of her own
This point Is regarded by the defense h
or., of the strong cards which will ba
played against Mr. Leafrreen. Through
out the day Attorney Johnson, represent
ing P-jbllc Xdmlnltrator Garrard Strode,
persisted In referring to Howard as "this
cigar maker." with the apparent purpose
"of making the Identification as Laclede
J. Howard seem rldlcsrfou.
"Mr. Howard cam to Palmer for the
second time !n the late fsll of ISM. Al
most from the first he paid coutt to .ne.
He propofe-J tn me first by mail, but the
letter has he-n either lost or destroyed.
Later he called on me almost every day
and early In January. IJCS, he a'ed me to

when Mr. Howard obtained a license.
About noon on January IS we went to the
home of the Reve-end W H. Musgrote. a

Mr. Muscrove was the onlv witness. I
bad alwats known Howard as Charley.

I know he had. never lived there. I gave

New Tork. Aug. It -In a circular Just
sent to all 'he prominent physicians of
New York, under the seal of professional
secrecy, the announcement Is made by
the New Tork Post-Graduate Hospital.
Manhattan, of the dlcoery of a vege
table fluid, which has been accepted as a
positive cure for consumption, even In Its
most advanced stages.
Results covering many months of ex
haustive and costly experiments show
complet. cures In every Instance. Eleven
patients, who on beginning the treatment
were sufferers from the disease, have been
discharged as at subjects for a life In
surance risk, and fifty ethers Mill under
observatioa in the hospital are on the
high road to recovery.
The discovery I this: That a com
pound of raw vegetable Juices Is the long-aought-for
element of diet needed to cure
obstinate case, where the lesions In the
lungs persisted after the ravages of the
disease had been apparently checked and
the general health of the body restored,
as testified by an Increase In weight.
The use of the new compound has over
come this difficulty to the complete satis
faction of a disinterested Hoard of Doc

It Is believed, moreover, that this may
lead to a means by which everybody may
be rendered Immune from the deadly tu
berculosis bacilli. Just aa vaccination safe
guards from smallpox. It Is expected that
the Post-GraJuate Hospital will advocate
that the fluid eventually hi bottled and
placed "on lap" at station throughout
tlte city and in drug store and soda water
Vegetable juice has leen In use at the
Post-Graduate Hospital's annex for the
treatment of consumption since January
T of this year, and at the basement of the
hospital building since March 7. between
January 7 and June 30 the record show
eleven patients were discharged as cured,
after being examined by a specially select
ed board of specialists, none of whom was
Interested In the experiments.
CAIV OF last PER CETT
IX CIRRI EFFECTED.
That tht splendid achievement was'
mainly due to the admlnlstratloa of the
new fluid Is demonstrated by the fact
that th. greatest number of cures ever
effected by the hospital In a year was
thirteen. This was the record of im. In
other words, almost a many cures have
been made la a little more than five
months under tha vegetable Juice treat

Th. principle upon which treatment of
consumption hi based Is that this dread

It needs to create normal blood: for If his
blood were normal It would contain prop
