mac the robber left the train. Tbe
robbery was not discovered until tbey
reached Marrimae, when tuu cur was
brcken open and Meisorgnr Fothcr

Tbe robbi-r is imperfectly described aa

rett bad dfcidi!l to put an txtra man
on the route, that tue bearer was Lo,
and that Mr. Fotheriiigham was di
rwlwl to lencli 1 i in the details of the
buaimss. Tliestrnngor was allowed
to inter the car, and took great inter
est iq all the movements of the mes
senger, Apparently desiring to learn
quickly the ins and oi.la of thtt dutlej
which ihe latter stated he was ex-
Eected to perform. Mr. Fothering
am's sui-piciimi were not at all
art.usul, and the stranger ImpreeBtd
him aa a quiet and prepoBHCBiliiR com
panion. The two men" busied them
eolvi a with the accounts, etc., and all
went well until a rloint between (St.
Louie and Tacillc, Mo., wrs reached.
In the meantime tho new assistant
was Informed that tlioro Wis nothing
more that he could doaltl at time, and
he seated himself in a chair
waiting ant 1 somo new du
ties were B'siitned to him.
Fotheringham was still engaged over
his accounts, with his back turned to
0imraii'g. In the cotmo of time
it became neceiwtry for him to go to
the tale, and, turnirg to do so, taw
the stranger calmly Billing in his chair
with a cocked tevolvor pointed Ht
Fotherlnghara's lal. He cmtluiisly
approached the dumbfounded mes
aenger and told him if he remained
quiet and made no outcry or laiaed no
alarm his life would nut be en
dangered, but that if he acted other
wise he could not answer for tho con
sequences. Fotheringham had noth
ing to do but to submit, and, accord
ing to his statument. the robber
bound him hand and Irot, pieseed a
gag into hia mouth, tied him to the
tnie ai.d proceeded with hia woik.
The safe had baen left open, and it
took but a fe minutes for the robber
to at cure thebauk notes and valuables
in the shape of jewelry, etc. lie cut
open theagj containing the silver
coin, but he evidently roacludod that
these were too heavy for him to carry,
and lie did not dieturb thoir con
tents. Of the gold, however, he took
a goodly amount, nud then pn. eroded
to muke good his escape. Tho read at
this point runs directly alongaiilo of a

' Washinotok, October 23. Among
the "Cabinet r. aebuds" who will blcs
s m out into Bicietv here this winter.
the mott attractive by fur is Msa Jen
nie Lamar, the 18 year old daughter
of the Hpcntaiy of the Ii.terior. She
is already know n in s ciety, since (he
has been for a year the chief toe al
support of her widower father. Phe
is a tpii al 8outheru b-au'.y. Her
form ie lotnewhat tall, lithe and wil
lowy; her movements particularly
gmce'ul, and her maoijer uaked by
the peculiar Ivgh culture observable
in blue blooded Houthern Indies. Hhe
has an ov.il face, almost perfect io con
tour, olive complexion, a pretty rose
bud mouth and velv. tr brown eyes,
which are wonderfully xprcssive.
As a converser si e his fuw cqua's
here, while in the mutter cf toe al
tact, thosB who have been at her fath
er's receptions say that she is like a
vetoran society worn in. For the tint
time (tince Mr. Lumar dime to
Washington he h i taken a whole
lions and proposes to entertain this
winter ou a scale ou'y below that of
Secretary Whitney. Whether he re
lies only on his daughter ns an a'sist
aut, or whether he expects to have a
wife ct the bead of the bouse noon, is
not known for csitain. Anyhow, he
might well rely on hia lovely daudi
tr, f jr she has all the qualifications
that go to make uo a linilur in cociety.
The Hecretary is raid to be very fond
of Miis Jennie. She generally accom
panies him on his fnqnent horseback
rides, and he never 1 oks so happy as
when she is leaning en his arm. Mr.
Lunar hud seen very little of his
daughter befme List w'nler. When
be was olected to the United Hta'es
Senate he placed her, then a little girl,
under the tare of a rela'ive who kept
a young ladies' seminary at Oxford.
Miss., and there die remained until
ho becaxe a raenibor of President
Cleveland's Cabinet- Kngaged in his
duties and dreim", he tot.k Utile
account if tbe child at home, to
that when she came here Inst win
ter te help her father in his
social duties be was lmmenfoly eur
piised at and prond of her develop
ment into a lovely young woman. It
Is probable that the Secretary would
never have a thought of a tecond mar
rigfl venture, having such a beauti
ful daughter, but for the fact that he
saw the wes not destined to renrtin
with him long. From her first appear
ance here tbe ycung men havo been
elapsing her among angels and other
sujiematural beings, and she has had
bo many puitors that it can hardly bo
in her feminine nature to hold out
much longer. The Secretary rerog
nis.s this fact hence his turning
towards a life paitner.
