IN BOY'S APPAREL, NELLIE PICKERELL, OF INDIANA, MAKES MASQUERADE. Wears Male Attire—Versed in Pugilism and Wanted to Be a Fighter—Was a Good Bar tender, a Splendid Hotel Clerk, a " Rough Rider" in and a Crack Shot. The assertion that one has to go away from home to obtain the news is verified by a correspondent of the Chi cago Inter-Ocean, who writes from Se attle as follows, under date of May Bth: Nellie Pickerell, a l'.f-year-old young woman living near Seattle, dresses like a man, works like a man and lights like a man. She is the l)r. Marv Walker of the Pacific coast. Her am bition is to be a prize fighter. When she wears dresses she is Nellie Picker ell. When she dons trousers she be comes Harry Livingstone, and insists on being called by that name. So strange is the Pickeroll-Livingstone combination that it offers strong proof of the double identity, which many psychologists of the day insist upon. As Harry Livingstone, dressed in Judish clothes, a silk hat, and carry ing a cane, Miss Pickerell attends all the prize lights and fistic encounters in Seattle. So far as is known, she has never taken the part of a princi pal, but she is a good boxer, very agile and wiry, and withal, has the science that counts for as much as muscle. She lias acted as a second a number of times at fights, and acquitted herself creditably from a prize-fighting standpoint. Not long ago, while act ing as a second, she was recognized by a man in the crowd, who yelled: " Git on to de girl in pants!" Miss Pickerell jumped into the ring and invited the offender to " come on and get the worst punishment you ever had. I can whip you in three minutes." The man disappeared in double quick time, amid the jeers of the spec tators, who were keen for an impromp tu mill. Nellie's latest escapado took plAce Inst Saturday evening, when she was arrested for scorching and ridiug her bike without touching the handle bars. For this she was fined $2, but, not having any change in her vest pocket, she left the bicycle in the ten der care of her captors at police head quarters. The girl first won notoriety about a year ago, when she was arrested for masquerading in male attire. There being no law in this State providing for the punishment of this deviation from accepted notions of propriety, she was released with a reprimand and cautioned to mend her ways. This did not disconcert her, however. She has repeatedly been arrested, os tensibly for creating a disturbance of the peace, but really for wearing the wrong clothes. On the clastic charge of disorderly conduct she has invaria bly been found guilty and fined, the fine being in one case as high as |2O. About two weeks ago Policeman Cam eron attempted to arrest her, but she got away. He fired two shots in her direction without attempting to hit her, but intended to scare her. Bhe took no more notice of the bullets than if they had been paper balls. About six years ago the Pickerell family came to Seattle from South Bend, Indiana. For some time they lived on a ranch and Nell donned male attire, herded cattle, broke bron chos, and participated in round-ups with enthusiasm. She became such an adept at riding that she was select ed for difficult posts and could beat any of the men at " busting" a bron cho or breaking a stampede. No re straint was placed upon her actions by her parents; she was allowed to do ex actly as she pleased. She learned to shoot, and to-day, with a twenty-two caliber rifle she can smash three out of five glass balls thrown in the air in rapid succession at a distance of twenty paces. Since Miss Pickerell came to Seat tle a revolver lias displaced the rifle and a man's bicycle the tricky mus tang of the ranch. She has relegated her cow puncher's clothes to the junk shop and taken to wearing tailor-made coats and trousers. She always dresses fashionably, wears the latest style Derby hat, alternates between a sack and a cutaway coat, and is care ful to have a pronounced crease in tier trousers. She seldom associates with girls. Among men she is a good fel low. The girl has never been accueed of being " tough." Apparently she scorns all of the weaknesses of her sex, either good or bad. "Yea, that's the dickens of it," said an old police officer yesterday. "If Nellie was ' tough' we could lock her up. But she's not. She's merely a sort of a sporty gentleman." Neilie does not look a bit like a girl when dressed in male attire. Mer walk and swing are the same as a man's, but she shows her feminine "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall Where they May." vanity Uy insisting, as does lier friends, that she makes a better look ing boy than she does a girl. When dressed in the paraphernalia of a girl she looks awkward and ungainly. De veloped like a man, she is tall, has dark brown hair, and brown eyes that Hash with reckless abandon and deti. ance. She is headstrong and abso lutely fearless. She wears her hair short, and is often seen in her favorite barber shop getting a haircut, and joshing the barber. When she works, Nellie Tickcrell is Harry Livingstone, and acts as a ho tel clerk and bartender. Pickerell- Livingstone is hu expert at mixing the drinks. She has worked in two sa loons, and it is said that while she was there the proprietor and his customers were ignorant of her sex. A year ago she went to Portland, Ore., where she has an uncle in the hotel business. She heard that he wanted to hire a night clerk, and ap plied for the job ami got it without disclosing her identity. Some weeks afterward, the uncle came upon a let ter which Nellie had received from her sister, and tl e true state of affairs dawned 011 him. Nellie resented his iuquisitiveness, gave up her job as clerk, and returned to Seattle. She has been well educated in the public schools,and is unusually shrewd and quick. She is nearly always re ferred to as " lie," and resents being addressed by her feuiinene name. Al together Nellie Pickerell is an interest ing study for the psychologists. MRS. DEWEY HAS REAL TACT. She Made Friends by Resenting a Snub to Newspaper Reporters. "Mrs. Dewey may have proved a poor adviser for the Admiral iu some ways, but she certainly has tact," re marked a newspaper man who report ed the Dewey celebration. " She was born a McLean and there fore a politician. On Monday morn ing when the Admiral and his party came into town the reception commit tee and a half dozen newspaper report ers went out to South Chicago to meet the train. When we got aboard the Admiral shook hands all around. Presently Mrs. Dewey came in the car and of course the head of the reception committoe was presented, and he in turn proceeded to introduce the rest of the party. "' Mrs. Dewey, the Hon. So-and-So,' etc., was the form until the chairman got to the newspaper reporters. '"These gentlemen,' he said to Mrs- Dewey, with a grandiloquent wave of his hand, ' are merely members of the press.' You can imagine that we felt rather silly, especially as the most of us have known the chairman of that reception committee for a long time and have often boomed a few boomlets for him out of the largeness of our hearts. But Mtb. Dewey was equal to the occa sion. "' The gentlemen of the press,' she said with a smile,' have always been my friends and I want to shake the hand of each one of these young men and learn their names.' " Buncombe? Of course it was bun combe, but it made us feel better. Strike any of those fellows now and you'll strike a citizen that says ' Dew ey's all right, and so is Mrs. Dewey.'" A Deserved Tribute. The Oregonian pays the following deserved tribute to Mark Hanna and William McKinley. It is not likely that the Republican press of the coun try will reprint this candid admission of the Portland daily: "The ro-election of Senator Hanna to the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee was an act of very questionable judgment. There are are two reasons. First, it virtually as serts a claim to bosship, or ownership of the party, by the small coterie of which Hanna is the head and McKin ley the instrument. Second, it throws into the faces of the wage-working classes oi the country the one man of all men most objectionable to them. Hanna is associated in the public mind with the trust forces against which is so loud complaint, and his name will be used by the opposition throughout the campaign as synony mous with them. There was no need to give the opposition this advantage." The Onion's Humor. " Your odor is so extremely strong," said the onion to the limburger cheese, " that it quite takes away my own perfume. At the same time it makes you my debtor." " And may I ask what I owe you?" inquired the limhurger in a super cilious tone. " You owe me an old-fashioned scent," replied the onion. WHATCOM county warrants repre senting about 150,000 indebtedness were called in by the Treasurer last week. OLYMI'IA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, JULY G, 1900. SLOW EVOLUTION OF A PIANO Its Nucleus a One-Stringed Instrument Some 5,900 Years Ago, Anton Rubinstein, the great Rus sian pianist, is credited with having said that the piano is the greatest of all instruments, " for it is a musical entity," said he, " and all other instru ments, even including the human voice, are to a certain extent fragmen tary." lie also declared that in the last century science had done less for musical instruments than for any other branch of industry; at the snme time, the development of the piano has been highly interesting. Its nucleus was a little box over which were stretched strings—in fact, one string only was used by the Egyptiaus 3,000 years before Christ, and the notes were regulated by a movable bridge. Then came the] mouochord used by the Greeks aud attributed to l'ythagoras in the sixth century, B. C., and up to 1,000 A. 1). the monochord was used in all churches to teach choir singers the " eight tones." From the crude instrument was de veloped the citole, the dulcimer and the psaltery. Besides thcso were the harpsichord, the clavithcrium, the clavichord, the virginal and the spinet. All these were stringed instruments. The clavithcrium had keys; the clavichord had dampers and points of quill or hard leather which rose and "plucked" the strings. A Venetian named Spinetti is said to have invented the spinet in the sixteenth century, which followed the virginal, on which Queen Elizabeth played. The harpsichord had two rows of keys, for which Bach and Handel composed in the seventeenth century. There is an interesting col lection of harpsichords in the South Kcusington museum, one of which is dated 1555. The dulcimer, whose strings were not like the foregoing, " plucked," but struck by leather-headed hammers held in tho hands, closely resembles the " cymbal" which is used in Hun garian orchestras of the preseut time. Front the dulcimer it wad a short step to the piano, and its iuvention is attributed to B. Cristofori, or Crista fale, of Florence, Italy; J. C. Schrotcr, a German, and Marius, a Frenchman, early in the eighteenth century. The strings were struck by small flat ham mers and they were mounted in an oblong box, in shape similar to the old-fashioned square piano, with the colors of the keys reversed—black for the natural and white for the sharps. Schroter, the German, about the time invented a similar instrument, and is said to have presented a model of his invention to the court of Saxony in 1717. His ideas were again improved upon by G. Silberman, who achieved considerable success with the first " wing-shaped" piano, or" fortepiano," as it was then called, John Sebasian Bach played upon one of these instru ments. Pianofortes were made in London by M. Zumple, a German, in 17GG, and have been steadily improved upon since that time. Mozart played upon pianos made by Joliann Stein and Antone Walter, and Mme. Streicker, who was Stein's daughter, made the pianos upon which Beethoven played, one of which is preserved in Windsor Castle. The first pianos known in America were imported from London in 1784 by John Jacob Astor, but as they could not stand the rigors of the climate they soon became ruined. This fact led to the attempt to build pianos in this country, and in the early part of the present century up rights made their appearance. A " stone pianoforte," formed of a series of Hints and other stones of various sizes, collected in France and arranged by M. Baudre, was played on by him at the royal institution on March 10, 1806. LANGUAGE OF THE DRUGGIST. Why Doctors Commonly Write Their Prescript " Well," aaid a prominent druggist, in answer to a querying customer, " I'll tell you one reason why a doctor al ways writes his prescriptions in Latin. It's not entirely in order, as most wo men suppose, to prevent the patient from knowing what drugs are called for, although this may sometimes be the case, as in the prescription you have just hauded me, which reads: ' Sodii chloridum,' etc. Now, bend your ear—that's but common salt- But the real reason why prescriptions are so written is to help the druggist. Only one day last week a Russian handed me a prescription given bim by a St. Petersburg physician. He had been in this country for some time and his medicine had given out. It was almost imperative that he have an immediate supply, and in broken Eng lish he explained the difficulty and handed me the prescription. Of tions in Latin. Philadelphia Record. course, it was in Latin, and I had no difficulty in tilling it. " Should all doctors write their pre scriptions in their native tongue it would cause a deal of trouble, espe cially when we take into consideration the host of foreign physicians practic ing in this country. Mind you, that's but ono reason, but it's an important one. How much do you owe me for your prescription? Thirty-five cents. High for salt? llut it's the regular charge, you know." ■ ■■ ♦ ♦ —— HOW GEORGE DIDN'T GO tieorge Hudson thought there was no one in the world so good as Made line Norwood. To his way of think ing nothing could be compared with her except, perhaps, one of the angels in heaven. One day they had a difl'erence. In high temper he took his hat and went out of the house, saying as he went, " I'll go away and never come back." But Madeline only laughed. The idea that George could get along with out her did not even make a dent in her imagination. The thought of how he would come back amused her greatly. She knew she would not like him to bow before her, plead with her and be submissive. No, that wouldn't do. Crushed would be her ideal of manly strength. lie had always been her general and she his next in rank. " And yet," thought she, " I couldn't go to him and say it's all right. That would mako me least in rank of all the army, and that which we hold in common would fade away." Early next morning the bell rang vigorously. Madeline was dressed in a handsome gown of light blue. George entered. The expression on his face showed he was still irritated in mind. Madeline said rather indifferently " Oh, you here?" " Yes" (fiercely). "I thought you were going away" (coquettishly). " I am" (more fiercely). "Soon?" " Yes, to-morrow" (roughly). " Er—er—er—er, I have a trunk of mamma's I could loan you" (archly); " I don't want anything belonging to you." " Well, really, it would be the least of trouble if you wanted it." " I don't. I came here to get my book of travels." "Oh, yes, certainly." Sho ran into an adjoining room and brought the book. "There," as she placed it in his hand. " Anything else?" " No," answered George as he put the book under his arm and went out the door toward tho stairs. He de scended ono step. She —" Er—er—where are you go ing?" He (grutlly)—" South Africa." " To dig?" " No, to fight." "Oh!" Silence. "English?" "No, Boers." " Er—er, do you think Roberts will get to Pretoria?" " I haven't thought." " Wonder if he'll get there before you?" No answer. By this time he had descended all but eight steps. She—" Anything I can do—pack your trunk, do your purchasing?" No answer. Another step. " Well, good-by!" No answer. Another step. " Hope you dou't miss tho boat." He stopped, looked up at her lean ing over the baluster. " You don't seem to care whether I go or not." " No" (laughing tormentingly). Three steps more. "Oh, George, you might take the big apple tree with you. I won't need it now, of course. You know tho one I mean. The one you and I used to sit under in the summer time. Why, 'twas only last summer we sat there. (More seriously.) Well, you better take it with you, for I don't want it now. (He sat down on the stairs.) Have you gone? Well, good-by." The old apple tree had furnished a happy thought. Slowly he turned in his position. " I am going," he said slowly, and then very softly and clearly: "I am going to stay with the apple tree." A Sermon in Brief. A man met a bull in a field. •' I'll toss you to see who stays," said the bull. He tossed and the man lost. The moral is that it is never safe to indulge in games of chance, especially when all the odds are against you. 2 to 2 to 2>02. " How long does the train stop here?" the old lady asked the brakeman. " Stop here?" answered the function ary, "Four minutes. From two to two to two-two." " I wonder," mused the old lady, If that man thinks ho is the whistle? THE CREATION OF WOMAN Hindoo Legend Concerning This Important Epoch in World's History. Heathen mythology cannot be as sumed to be historically correct, al though it is often interesting. The legend of the Hindoos concerning the creation of woman is one of the most entertaining of myths that have been preserved through the ages. It relates that at the beginning of time Twash tri, the prototype of Vulcan of more recent mythology, created the world. When he found that his work would be incomplete without woman all his material had been exhausted. There was not a single solid element remain ing. Much perplexed, Twashtri, after profound meditation, took the round ness of the moon, the undulations of the serpent, the entwining of creeping plant, the trembling of the grass, the slenderncss of the rose vine and the velvet of the flower, the lightness of the leaf and the glance of the fawn, the gaycty of the sun's rays and the tears of the mist, the inconstancy of the wind and the timidity of the hare, the vanity of the peacock and the soft ness of the down on the throat of the swallow, the hardness of the diamond) the sweet flavor of honey and the cruelty of the tiger, the warmth of fire, the chill of snow, the chatter of the jay and the cooing of the turtle dove. He united all this and formed a woman. Then he made a present of her to man. Eight days later man came to Twashtri and said: " My lord, the creature you gave me poisons my existence. She chatters without rest, site takes all my time, she laments for nothing at all and is always ill." And Twashtri received the woman ifgain. But eight days later the man came again to the god and said : "My lord, life is very solitary since I returned this creature. I remember she danced before me singing. I recall how she glanced at me from the corner of her eye, that she played with me, clung to me." And Twashtri returned the wo man to him. Three days only passed and Twashtri saw the man comiug to him again. "My lord," said he, "I do not understand exactly how, but 1 am sure that the woman causes me more annoyance than pleasure. I beg of you relieve me of her." But Twashtri cried: "Go your way and do your best." And the man cried: "I cannot live with her!" " Neither can you live without her," replied Twashtri. And the man was sorrowful, mur muring: "Woe is me, I can neither live with or without her." This is found in an English transla tion of a book of Hindoo legends re cently discovered. The title of the book is "Of a Finger of the Moon Red dened by the Setting Sun," and is the sixth part of a large work, " The Surg ing of tho Ocean of Time." It was written in Sancrit and the original manuscript was given to an English man—Mr. Bain—by an old Brahmin dying of tho plague. Tho other five parts are not translated. THIS GIRL HAD FORETHOUGHT. She Wished to Make Sure of an Income After They Were Wedded. She is a fair young thing no matter whether she lives in Chicago or Kala mazoo, and she knows a young man who is all the world to her, albeit the world might not hold her choice in such esteem as she herself holds it. When a fair young thing is in that conditiou it matters little to licr where she lives. The only shadow on her sweet young life is cast by her respect ed father, who is, or was, not favora bly inclined to the object of her choice. Just what he thinks now is not yet de finitely ascertained. The fair youug thing had an interview with her father the other evening. " So," he said severely, " you have accepted that young smug, have you?" " To all intents and purposes, papa," she admitted freely. " You ought to know better than that," hegrumbled. " Don't you know he is a very improper young man— that he plays cards for money and bets on horse races?" " Yes, papa." " And he has only sl2 a week sal- " I know it, papa." " And how do you suppose he is ever going to support you on that sum?" " He isn't, papa." " He isn't?" " No, sir." " Well, he isn't looking to me to support him, is he?" She smiled softly. "No," she hesitated; " not exactly, papa, but he says if you'll /inly keep on playing poker with him three nights in the week, there won't be any trouble about our getting along beau tifully." TACOMA received a Spanish cannon Wednesday and will place it in the City Park. STATE NEWS. A Brief Summary of News Gathered From all Parts of the State. Two cases of smallpox have been discovered at New Whatcom. The wheat crop this year promises to be the largest in the history of the State. Harvest is on in earnest in the Walla Walla valley. Many machines went into operation the first of the week. Au addition to cost $5,000 will be erected at the St. Paul Episcopal school at Walla Walla, work to com mence in a few days. Charles McAllister, of North Yak ima, was dangerously and perhaps fatally shot while toying with a re volver, the other day. The United States Marine Hospital authorities have issued an order that all vessels returning from Alaska with sickness 011 board must stop at Port Townsend for inspection. The Scandinavian-American Bank of Seattle will erect a new double block shingle mill at Arlington. It is expected to have all the material on the ground in 10 days. Four thousand ewes and 4,000 lambs were sold at Ellcnsburg Thurs day, to Shearer, of Oregon, for $22,000, which is $2.75 a head straight through. They were bought for stock purposes. Dayton grain men and farmers have received four car-loads of grain-bags for the crop now being harvested, three cars coming from the State Penitentiary. This is the largest shipment of State bags ever made to Dayton. Construction work on the Northern Pacific cut-off" from Palmer to Auburn, a distance of 21 miles, is nearly com pleted. It is expected that through trains will be operated over the line by July 1. This cut-off will effect a saving of about 27 miles between Spo kane and Seattle. C. W. Meyer was struck by the outgoing O. R. <fc N. train six miles east of Spokane Saturday morning and instantly killed. His body was thrown 70 feet from the track, and the horse he was riding was hurled 60 feet in the air, and fell 20 feet beyond the rider. Work on the jetty at the entrance of Gray's Harbor, is progressing rapid ly. About 7,000 feet, or about a mile and a half, is now completed, the con tract calling for a total length of four miles. The supervising engineer esti mates that it will require two years yet to complete the work. The Puyallup river is up to the top of its banks in the lower valley and threatening to break over and do great damage to the market gardens in the Puyallup reservation. The rise is caused by the warm weather of the past few days, which has caused the snows on the mountains to melt rapidly. The Japanese must go at Mount Vernon. This was the decision of a meeting of about 100 business men, mechanics and laboring men held last week. Ever since the introduc tion of Japanese section bands there has been more or less hard feeling, which culminated in the meeting and subsequent action. After the meeting the men marched to the shack occu pied by the foreigners and informed them that they must leave town, which they did at once, hastily pack ing their belongings. A new insect has attacked the trees in the vicinity of Dixie, 10 miles from Walla Walla, and considerable dam age has been done during the past few days. The leaves turn brown and ap parently die rapidly, while the wood of the tree shows an unhealthy ten dency. The fruit appears to feel the effect at once and soon becomes soft and wizened. Upon examination there are seen thousands of small in sects working in aud under the bark of the trees, taking the sap away from the leaves and fruit. OASTOniA. Bwnths Kind You Haw AIWIR B—M.
