THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH. MONDAY, MARCH 31, 1890.
BOB'S FIBST BowtSe Bright Humorist Burdetle Came to be a Preacher. NESTING AUOKG THE ADIRONDACK He Was Inntcd by the Satires to Supply a Taunt Pulpit. A DONATION THAT WAS GIVEN BiCE Gless Falls, N. T., Harch 30. Rob ert J. Bnrdctte lectured in the neighboring Tillage of Sandy Hill recently, and, among other things, referred to a time when he acted as pastor of a church in 'Warren coun ty. "I filled my first charge as a clergy man," he said, "in the neighboring county of Warren. I was all -worn ont and tired. I fought with all the boarders in the house where I was stopping in Philadelphia in 1SS4. "Finally, one day in a moment of irri tability, I had a row with my landlady. I told my sister I was going into the country for rest and quiet. She advised me to get a chain and muzzle, and volunteered to accom pany me into the Adirondack Mountains, and place me among the rest of the bears. We arranged matters, and we were soon at North Creek, "Warren county. There I hunted up a guide. He asked where I wanted to go. I told him that was exactly what I wanted to know. Then he looked me orer critically, and I know he must have asked biniEell mentally: "How did this lunatic escape?' HUNTING FOK SOLITUDE. "I broke the silence by telling him that I understood he was a guide. If he didn't know enough to guide people without ask ing them where to go he ought to pull down his sign and go out of the business. After he looked at me a minute longer, I told him to take me to some place where I wouldn't see a human face or hear a human TOice ex cept my 'own and my sister's. The guide then took me to Thirteen Pond, in the town of Johnsburg. "I had not been there more than a week when a delegation of church trustees came up and said tbey had heard I was a preacher. The Baptist church, five miles away, was without a pastor, and they wanted me to run the church. I'had never tried to preach, but the next Sunday I iound myself filling the pulpit, and belore a week had passed I felt like a regularly ordained clergyman. The realism was made stronger some time alter when the congregation got up a donation for me. The affair netted (38, and a FEEE SUPPER TOB THE PASTOK thrown in. They offered me the money. I took one silver dollar and returned the rest to the trustees. That silver dollar I shall always keep; if anything was honestly earned that dollar was. That was my first experience as a clergyman. I don't know whether I did the church any good, but I know that it did much good to me, and when I left the woods in the fall I was vig orous and in the best of health." Burdette's last act while at Sandy Hill was perhaps as well appreciated as any of his funny remarks. The evening of the lecture was stormy and many were deterred from attending. Seeing the empty benches, the humorist asked how the course of lec tures had resulted financially. On being told that the Athletic Association would be 520 or f25 short, he handed the Treasurer 525 from the amount paid him for his lecture, with directions to apply the same and wipe out the deficit. A POPULAR PASTOR. The story of Burdette's ministerial ex perience at the North River Baptist Church is told from the side of the pews bv a church member. Mr. Burdette's short min istry among the North Itiver people was de lightful to them beyond expression. Though reeking seclusion and rest he was in the habit of attending the little church on Sunday for worship. His identity became known to the people, and they asked him to preach. Consenting, he not only refused to accept the donation except the dollar of which he spcke, but gave a lecture each week, the proceeds of which were devoted to the decrease ot a small debt incurred in building the church. Mr. Burdette's preaching was good sense about spiritual things, with a simple, clear interpretation of the Scriptures. He never lost his sense of the seriousness of the busi ness on hand. His aims seemed to be to preach the Gospel of his Master with sim plicity and spiritual earnestness. The people of North Creek will never forg t those weeks the. spent in the summer of 1881 under the ministry of Eobert J. Bur dette. BOB'S GESEKOSnv. Theannual meeting of the Lake George Association occurred in the course of this ministry. Mr. Burdette attended as pastor oi me second jonnsourg unurch the offi cial name of the church and preached on that occasion. His name appears in the ministerial record of the association as pas tor of this church. Subsequently an appeal was sent to him as pastor for a contribution toward the building of the Judson Memorial Church in New York. It was forwarded to him at his home, with other mail matter, without the knowledge of the church. He promptly forwarded to Dr. Judson the sum desired, and caused the certificates of contribution to be sent to the church. His name is ven erated around 2orth Creek. It a visitor wishes to raise a storm, the easiest way to go about it would be for him to run down Robert J. Burdette. They may be behind the times on the out skirts of the Adirondacks, but they're wise enough to know good preaching when thev hear it. Said the church member who told the story of Bob's ministry at North Creek: "He is first a Christian, and then, as oppor tunity offers, a preacher." THE SLAL rOACIIIXG SEASON. Steamers Gelling Ready to Go to Bearing Sea and Defy the Law. Seattle, March 30. Captain J. C. Nixon, owner of the sealing schooner Allie J. Alger, when interviewed to-day said his schooner and many others would go into Behring Sea this year to catch seals in de fiance or law. He says the North American Commercial Company, now the lessees of the Alaska seal grounds, haven't got the influence in Congress possessed by the old Alaska Commercial Company. "The latter company." said he, "sent its originator and president, John T. Miller, to the Senate and later Senators Hoar and Allison and others became interested in the company. This gave the old company a good deal of influence, and their territory was extended from the Seal Islands to the whole of Behring Sea. I don't think the new com pany can get the Government to send a revenue cutter to protect their interest, and as many British schooners have started from "Victoria and others are now fitting out I don't see why we Americans can't send our schooners up there to reap a harvest of valuable pelts." On the other hand Georgp E. Tingle, gen eral manager of the new company, says that all violations ot the seal laws shall be pun ished. A great season of poaching is ex pected. AH For Hastings. rEFECIAI. TELEQnAM TO TBE CI8PATCH.1 Bellefonte, March 30. At the Re publican primaries held last night, for the instruction of delegates to the convention, there was a large vote polled and it was unanimous for Hastings, with not a single vote for any other candidate. Confirmed. The favorable impression produced on the first appearance of the agreeable liquid fruit remedy Syrup of Figs a few years ago has been more than confirmed bv the pleasant experi ence of all who hare used it. and tbe succe8 of the proprietors and manufacturers the Cali fornia Fig Syrup Company. MISS BACON WAS BOUND TO DIE. First Sho Tried Chloroform and Then Took n Plunge Into the I.nltr. Chicago, March 30. It is believed that Miss Marion Bacon, the 22-year-old daugh ter of Colonel James Bacon, a wealthy man of Niles, Mich., has drowned herself in Lake Michigan. For a year or more Miss Bacon has been studying at the Conserva tory, her lessons including elocution and music, and it was generally understood she was going on the stage. She had an inclina tion that way, but it is said of late she be came convinced in some way that she would never make a success, and became quite downhearted. Miss Bacon boarded at No. 1239 Michigan avenne, and early Thursday evening en deavored to commit suicide by means of chloroform. This did not work satisfactori ly, though, and, rushing from the house thinly clad and in the midst of aragine snow storm, it is believed she threw herself into the lake at the foot of Twelfth street. Evi dences that she had attempted suicide in her room were numerous. On a small table by the side of the bed was an empty four-ounce bottle that held chloroform, and by the side of it was an overturned goblet Miss Bacon not appearing yesterday morning, her room was broken into and the following note, ad dressed to the landlady, was found on the table: Mr Dear Mrs. Creary By the time you open my door and read this 1 will ho in another world. I will try the chloroform route. Mattie Bacon. In a chair in her room an elegant white satin dress had been laid out, the girl evi dently desiring to be buried in it. Miss Bacon was a favorite in society here, and went out a great deal. Her lather is dis tracted over his loss, and offers a large re ward lor the recovery of the body or infor mation of any kind relating to his daugh ter's whereabouts. The lake in the vicinity of Twelfth street has been dragged, but so far without result. DUNN'S SON'S QUEER STOET, He Claims That Hit Father lias Two Wives and Two Families. terECML TELEOliJLM TO THE DISFATCH.1 Youx cstowx, March 30. Eoger Dunn, who has lived here for 20 years and has raised a large family, has been confronted by a son, aged 37, from Manchester, Eng., who claims his father is a bigamist. The son has employed counsel, and said to-day that 25 years ago his father was a noliceman in Manchester, and had a wife and three children. Becoming infatuated with a do mestic, he left his family and came here, where he joined the girl and has since been living. The son claims he has been search ing for his father for oyer 20 years. Mrs. Dunn No. 1 still resides in Manches ter. Mrs. Dunn No. 2 claims that she and Eoger were married in this country, but the latter denied that they had been " married. He has five children here. The son has sent to England for the marriage certificate, and it looks now as if Eoger Dunn will be un done bv his son. NEW MILLS FOR DUQUESNE. A Rumor That Wellsvlllo Works Are to bo Located There. rsrBCIAI. TELKOKAM TO THE DISPATCH.I McKeesport, March 30. It is reported here that the "W. DeweesWood Company is about to purchase a large strip of land at Duquesne, on which to locate its "Wellsville mills, which it has for several years been desirous of having in this vicinity. None of the members of the firm can be seen to night, but reports from Dnquesne state that the firm is after ground in that place. With the mills at Dnqnesne, the manage ment and the work, in fact, would probablv be the same as that of the mills here now, though the capacity, of course, would be enormously increased. A Rose Bafr In Her Ear. New Philadelphia, O., March 30. "While Mrs. Belle Morty, of Blake's Mills, near here, was in the garden gathering flow ers, late last fall, a rose bug flew into her ear, and she has not yet been able to dis lodge the little insect. She suffers constant ly the most excruciating pain and annoy ance, and from the continued buzzing and moving-about feeling she imagines that the bug is still alive. A surgical operation to day failed to bring any relief, ana the woman continues to suffer the most intense pain. Take It in Time.

The Schvreinfurthltcs Badly Disturbed by a Diiputo Between Leaden. Chicago, March 30. There is trouble in "heaven," Jacob Schweinfurth, the head of the Beekmanites, having denied the claim of Mrs. Mary Eogers, of Chicago, that she is "Mother Eve" come to lire again and the mother of the human race. Mrs. Eogers is as certain that she is Eve as is Schweinfurth that he is Christ, and backs up her theory with strong arguments from the Beekmanite standpoint. Schweinfurth is furious and denounces Mrs. Eogers as a fraud and im postor. She has left Eockford and gone back to Chicago, where she is now living in seclusion. Her home is in the former sub urb of Lake View, and as she has a number of followers and believers a split among the Beekmanites is not improbable. It is said that "Mother Eve" intends to brine suit against Schweinfurth for an ac counting of the funds of the order, as there are rumors that the so-called "Christ" has laid aside some stocks and bonds for a rainy day.

Next Sunday, April 6, THE DISPATCH WILL BEGIN SERIAL PUBLICATION OP A REMARKABLE NOVEL OP RUSSIAN LIFE, ENTITLED, THE E OF US, A ROMANCE OP -BY- PRINCE JOSEF LUBOMERSKI, Perhaps the Most Powerful of the ' New School of Russian Novelists. New Novel is not only one of the most exciting and dramatic thib stories ever penned, but it contains per haps some of the very best pictures of the horrors of the Siberian exile system of Russia ever written. It is a singularly powerful expose of Russian bureaucracy, cruelty and intrigue. At the same time, the novel possesses all the most interest ing elements of a powerful love story; dealing with the almost successful efforts of Russian officials to accomplish the destruction of the hero and unhappiness of the heroine. The story involves political intrigues on account of the rivalry between differ ent departments of the Government, the meetings of a band of Revolutionists, to one of which the hero is lured in order that he may be entrapped, strange hap penings at a masked ball in St. Peters burg, a striking scene in the terrible dungeons of the Castle of Peter and Paul, banishment of the hero without trial to Siberia, where his young wife follows him; the life of the Exiles in the wilds of Eastern Siberia, their plans for revolt and escape, a meeting of conspirators in a cave on an island of the Baikal Sea, where the hero confronts the man who had be trayed him, the knouting of an Exile in a forest hut to make him disclose a hidden paper, the revolt under a man known as "The Czar of the Exiles," the cruel acts of injustice practiced by officials on Ex iles. These and many other features of the story, together with the happy out come of all their trials for the hero and heroine, make a romance of thrilling interest. The novel is a wonderfully compact and strong piece of story telling. It is full of incident from beginning to end. There is practically no descriptive matter in it. The plot is ingenious and compli cated, and every chapter brings some new and striking change in the situation of the principal characters. The story is translated from the original Russian by Meta Devere, who has translated a num ber of Russian novels. The work is a fine and spirited rendering of the original, and seems to have lost nothing by the translation into English. The author, Count Lubomirski, is one of the new Russian writers. None of his works have heretofore appeared in English. This novel has made a great sensation in Europe. The scene is laid in the time of Nicholas, the grandfather of the present Czar, but thi3 seems to have been done in order to avoid the condemnation of the censor, as the novel apparently deals with cote mporaneous conditions, and one feels that the author (himself a former Exile) is writing of the present day. Just now when the civilized world is roused by reports of Siberian atrocities, and by the investigations of George Ken nan, it is believed .that this will be a singularly timely treat. The novel has been purchased simply because of its strong dramatic interest, and of its truth to human nature. The story has a breadth and sweep of action unusual in a novel so sensational.
