AFTER FEMALE SMUGGLERS.
4. Woman Customs Inspectress Who Kama Her Money. Miss Lillian Ellis, of New York city, has been inspectress of customs "exclusively for ladies" since 1880, and was practically brought up to the business, for her mother was appointed to the place by President Lincoln when the husband and father. Dr. Ellis, lost his life by attending to sick sol- LILLIAN ELLIS. diem. It is an interesting coincidence thnt Ellis island, where Miss Ellis now does her work, was named for her great-rrrand father, who was an aid-dc camp to' George Washington, nnd on her mother's side she is closely related to the Cnrrolls of Mary land and the Randolphs of Virginia. Miss Ellis has to do the work of woman inspectress for the Bremen, Hamburg and Thingvnllu lines, and her experience wit,h female smugglers would make a rich vol ume. "Women," says Miss EIHb, "smuggle more than men, but they seldom carry out their plans as well. Not long since I point ed out to an officer v, gentleman who was emptying his pockets of dutiable goods into his trunk that had been passed and checked. I was reading a newspaper, sit ting on the end of a trunk next to Ins and he was using me as a shield from the in spector not far away. He looked as if he could have killed mo when he learned I was an officer too. Women sometimes use their children for means of carrying off things. About three weeks ago I made love to a little baby until I had secured over $600 worth of tho finest laces and jew els that the mother had sewed into its hood and cloak, and even eucn little shoe had a ring in the toe." An Italian woman who was suspected set up a fearful screaming in the private room and rushed out barefooted aud hare headed calling for tkje interpreter. When he came she explained that before she left Italy she had been cautioned against the American people, who would steal the very clothes off her back. "Mio Dlol" she exclaimed, "and they have already taken my shoes, and la signora wanted my dress and shawl too!" It was evident that the woman did not have the nerve for a smuggler. Au Irish woman was found to have five yards of coarse, black cotton lace wrapped arouud her person, a bag of cigarettes, two clay pipes and four yards of cheap silk suspend ed by pieces of rope from her belt and snugly hidden in the folds of her petticoat. It was her personal property and not dutia able. When told that she might have car ried it as freely in an open basket her dis gust may be imagined. Miss Ellis is of average height and very attractive in appearance, with a disposi tion that makes it hard for her to say any thing severe, but she catches many a tricky woman just the same. The great building on Ellis island is so perfectly sys tematized that from 1,200 to 1,500 immi grants can easily be landed at one time. Here are rooms for the detention of pau pers, lunatics, criminals and persons sits pected of being contract laborers. Women and children are provided with separate rooms, and a telegraph station, money ex change, postal station, information bureau and railroad aud steamship office are in convenient order. When the approach of a vessel in her class is telegraphed from Eire island Miss Ellis is notified and must be ready for duty at 0 a. m., very often re main ing till 10 p. m. Still there are few days when she is overworked. A stout heart, a steady nerve and a quick eye are what are needed, and she has them. VVas Immersed in the Jordan. The man who was baptized in tbe River Jordan by Rev. Dr. Talmage, of Brooklyn, two yearn ago was married in Topeka the other day. Dr. Talmage in his book on Palestine states that while traveling in that country on foot he met an American who asked to be baptized in the same stream in which John the Baptist bap tized Jesus Christ. He baptized him and each went his way. The name of the man la not given in Dr. Talmage's book, but, as has been before suspected, he was from Kansas. His name is TJlysses Grant Hous ton, and he lives at Concordia. He is a graduate of the Kansas Agricultural col lege at Manhattan and a member of the Methodist church. His bride is Belle Varral, a teacher in the Concordia schools. They went to To peka and were married at the North To peka parsonage by Rev. G. W. Browning, pastor of the Kansas Avenue M. E. church. They left for Chicago, and this fall Mr. Houston will enter a theological school in the east. Ho has made two trips to the Holy Land and has traveled over the coun try on foot, accompanied only by a guide. He speaks with a good deal of pride of bis. baptism by Dr. Talmage. Novel Evidence of Devotion. While summering at a hotel on the Blue mountains, near Reading, a gallant youth who resides in Philadelphia bethought him of a clever plan to prove to his fiancee his undying devotion. In the six weeks on the mountain he killed with his own hand nineteen huge rattlesnakes. Tho rattles, numbering 213, were carefully plucked from the tails of the venomous reptiles and all the snakes were bravely skinned. The skins were taken to a furrier in Reading and a section of each was cut out and pieced into a brilliant girdle. The edges of the girdle, top and bottom, were trimmed with the rattles after tho fashion of jet beads. This astonishing trophy was then presented by the gallant youth to his sweet heart. Hanged by His Playmates. Some little boys at Shelton, Conn., while "playing circus," hanged one of their party as a horse thief. The performance was so natural that a physician exercised his skill half an hour before the lad re covered consciousness. Didn't Know His Luck. AKaOtf v 'l. le (Term.) liveryman fell off a "bridge and landed on a pile of rocks, a dis tance of fifty f° et > while intoxicated. Ho "escaped without injury, but got mad be cause his watch case was broken." A Criticism. It must have been a relative of Mrs. Partington's who visited a waxwork exhi bition aonie weeks ago, and who remarked, when she saw the waxen effigy of the deasi .Napoleon lying in state, "Ain't it wonder ful? You'd almost think he was alive. I .declare I don't see how they manage to get :that lifelike waxiness of death."—Harper's .Magazine, — LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 18, 1892. Consonptfon. When the gain of what is termed a whole nation under arms is estimated, the exaggeration of the pompons phrase hides the nakodness of the fact that large numbers of young men are lost to their country by the means to which they resort to escape military service. In Italy and Germany these may be counted by legions; in France men are less numerous, because in France men are more wedded to the native soil, and take to service moro gayly and more naturally, but in Italy and Germany thousands flock to emigrant ships, thus choosing lifelong, self expatriation, and every year, as the military and fiscal burdens grow heavier, will lads go away by preference to lands where, however hard be the work, the dreaded voice of tbe drill sergeant cannot reach them, and they can "call their soul their own." Patriotism is a fine quality no doubt, but it does not accord with the chill and supercilious apathy which characterizes tho general teaching and temper of this age, and a young man may be pardoned if he deem that his country is less a mother worthy of love than a cruel and unworthy stepmother when she demands three of the fairest years of his life to bo spent in a barrack yard, and wrings his ears till the blood drops from them or beats him about the head with the butt of a musket because lie does not hold his chin high enough or Bhift his feet quick enough.—Ouida in Fortnightly Review. Where Strong Men Lived. A£ter the Spanish occupation of the- Grand Canary a certain enormous stone was for a long time -pointed out as ono of the instruments of the Gaunehe athletic courses. The natives had been ablo to lift it, set it on their shoulders and oven throw it over their heads. Their degenerate posterity and the Spaniards could not raise it from the ground. It was reckoned nothing out of the common for a man to take an unteth ered ox by the horn with one hand and slay it with tho other. A certain native born priest of Grand Canary in the Sev enteenth century showed that he in herited some of his ancestors' vigor, for one day, hearing that an enraged bull had broken loose and was in the street, he ran ont and grasping it by the leg threw it down, and so held it until its owner was able to secure it. This doughty son of the church before his death chanced to have one of his legs amputated for a cancer. It was then found that his thigh bone was solid, with no trace of marrow. It must be confessed, however, that the relics of the Canarians now found in their bury ing places do not bear out the inference* that this was a national characteristic, though their dimensions are certainly a testimony of the strength and size of their late proprietors.—National Review. He Thought He Knew That Face. "I pride myself on never forgetting a face, but as a nomenclator I am a far reaching and iridescent failure," said A. O. Smoot as he bruised the crumbs of the table d'hote out of his whiskers. "Some years ago I was in a Boston street car when a lady entered whoae face was very familiar. I felt that I knew her well, but to savo nic I could not recall her name. I shook hands with her, asked after her health and tried to make myself very agreeable. She treated me to ice water, but that is a peculiarity of some women, so I didn't mind. Finally she told me frankly that she had not the pleasure of my acquaintance. "That bluffed me, but I handed her, my card. She read the name and shook her head. She was quite sure that she had never even heard of me. I sub sided and put on my thinking cap. Was she making game of me or was it pos sible that I was mistaken? I couldn't make it out. That night I went to the theater and the mystery was solved. The woman I knew so well, but who had never heard of me, was that queen of tragedy, Mrs. D. P. Bowers."—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. She Dreaded "Loveless Old Age." The late Anne Reeve Aldrich wus the author of the novel, "The Feet of Love," and of a volume of collected verses which have attracted the attention of the public through their intensity, great felicity of expression and unaffected simplicity and directness. Mias Aldrich was one of the youngest of the writers of the day. She had made an unusual name for herself, and lived in the prom ise of a brilliant future. A friend re cently described her appearance to be like that of the heroine of a success ful novel. She was tail and had a beautiful figure. Her manners were charming, her carriage graceful. The head was statuesque and adorned with a wealth of red brown hair. This she wore in classical style. Coupled with her clean cut features it gave her face a look of distinction and refinement which made her an ob ject of remark. In her early death she attained perhaps more than she coveted. Yet her writings more than once dwelt upon the hardships of a "loveless old age"—a condition from which she shrank.—Current Literature. Why Diamonds Are Worn. Ignorant, flippant men are fond of say ing that ladies' fashions have nothing to do with common sense. But there is one fashion —at first sight a very ugly and rather vulgar one—which is based on reason. Not many years ago it was con sidered vulgar to wear diamonds in the daytime. Now you may see them sparkling in dainty ears and under well bred chins. And it is rumored that if the prying eye could look under cloaks and bodices it would discern stars and necklets and bracelets. The fact is that women put on their jewels when they go out because they dare not leave them. —Ran Francisco Arewwit. . C. F. HEINZEMAN, Druggist & Chemist, 222 N. Main St., Los Angeles.
