") I saw In the Evening Journal not long sltiiu about mi old Womun who was one hundred and seven years old, so. 1 went to sco lior. She Uvea In the basement of an old house. Tho room had plenty of windows iu It and she seemed to bo very com fortably li.xed. She broke her hip set en years ago and has not walked any since,, but sits In n roller chair. I never say tho "Witch of Kndor," but imagine alio looked like this old soul. I felt like a giddy youijs thing of eighty beside her. Sho ap peared to bo about us large as n girl of fifteen, and had on a short dress so she could wheel herself around better. Sho seemed to bo Just dried up and dwindled away. Slie woie n black bonnet, had two teeth left, but they don't hit, one on ench side of her mouth. She bald her daughter worked In a. laundry tiiul got sixteen dollais a mouth and sho drew a pension of sixteen dol lais. She had live sons and a husband killed in tho Wnr. All day she was alone from sun up to sun down. I said, "Vou can read and amuse your self If. your eyesight is good." "No, my eyesight Is not good, and tlteso lights dicker so! They toll mo it's lightning fixed in .them little bottles, and I'm kind ()' skecred of It when my daughter, alnt here to 'tend to me. I like taller caudles, myself, that's wliat.l waa raised on." "Well, .vou don't have to light tho electric lights In the day time. You liavo nice big windows to see how to react " "Well, I can't read then, neither, because I halnt got no eddieatlon; never was lamed no letters in my life. My daughter she can read right sharp, If she is used to the book." 1 asked if her-daughter was mar ried. "Well, she Is and she alnt. Sho married a man, and one day sho was patchln' his coat and u letter fell outcn tho pocket and sho got a neighbor to read It and It was from his wlfo, so Sally ups and loff him and has been with mo over since."

Her father was In tho war of 1812, and shn remembered tho Mexican, tho Civil and tho Cuban Wars. Sho did not know much about (lencral Jackson cxrtspt that ho "lit" on tho 8th of January and her fnther nl ways celebrated It by getting drunk er then than on any other day. Sho pi Id Oenornl Jackson passed through Gallatin, Teiin., onca horitebnck on Ills way to bo President and n man went to tho hotel to see him nnd said, "General, I "must tell you I voted agin you both times when you rnn for President." The Gen eral, sho said, drew hlniBclf up and replied, "Well, sir, I fought and bled and nearly died that you might vote ns you d pleased," and sho cackled and laughed lit to kill her self. I had asked her so mnny ques tions thnt sho turned tho tables on mo nnd said, "Kin you'nfl read, child?" I answered "Yes, some." "Kin you write?" she asked. I told her "Yes, but nobody could read It very well." "Why didn't you, when you wuz a gittln' somo eddieatlon, git enough to do you some good?" I asked her what she thought would bo enough. "Well, bo's you could read any sort o rcadln', newspapers and 8lch, and not stop to spell the words and stumblo Along, nnd to rend writln. I got a letter once and hud to git a woman to rend it fur me. It had money In it from my brother' "That was good," I said as sho paused. "No twnnt, nuther. fur that wom an spread "It fur and nenr, nnd ev cverybody I owed 'a nickel to, conio fur their money," was her answer. I told her T did not think it worth while to lenrn to road writing now, I had no one to send mo money In let ters. "Kin ye llggor?" sho asked. "Ves," I snld,"l can llguro enough to know how much a dozen eggs would como to nt llfteeu cents a dozen." "Laud eake, child, where can you git 'em fpr that?" I told her that was many, mnny years ago before hens got to be worth a thousand dol lars apiece. "La, child, you aro making fun of me." (80-year-old child! .Me back to tho nursery!) Her daughcer came In and bust led nround, sweeping up tho hearth nnd mending the lire, Tho old wo man said "I git uwful tired a settln' here, can't walk none. 1 wish the good Lord would teud fur me." "Now, .Maw," said her daughter, "Vou know tho preacher told you to have patience and the Lord would send fur you sis soon ns Ho gob ready fur you to come." The old woman seemed Impatient and said "Ho didn't give me no sat isfaction about heaven, that preach er. Ho said I wouldn't have noth ing t'o do but rest and sing.

CHARGE AGAINST ROOSEVELT I That He. Humiliated Ameri cans Traveling In South America. ML'CII HONOR SHOWN. TO TKODY London, March 14. "t'ngoner ous, not to say grasping," describes some of Theodore Roosevelt's ncta iu Soutli America if reports current there may be believed," said John T. Lenfestcy, of Chlcngo, to the cor respondent of tho Dally News to-day on reaching London from Rfo do Ja neiro, after a tour of tho principal South' American countries in the in terest of closer trade relations be tween the continents on the western hemisphere. Mr. Lenfestcy carried letters of recommendation from Secretary of Stato Hryan, Wilbur John Cnrr and Henry A. Wheeler and represented the Chamber of Commerce of tho United States nnd1 the Chicago As sociation of Commerce. Ho thus gained admittance to tho best In formed circles iu South America, Including the diplomatic and consu lar officers of the Putted States. "My mission," continued .Mr. Len fchtey, "brought to my attention a number of things prejudicial to tho spread of American influence and business Iu the republics of South America. "Mr. Roosevelt left nn unfortu nate Impression wherever he went. Reports adverse to him reached me from responsible sources in Santia go, Rueuos Aires. Montevideo and Rio do Janeiro. "Ills conduct In Rio was the sub ject of native comment of a particu larly scathing character. He arriv ed there Oct. 31, accompanied by .Mrs. Roosevelt, n niece and his sou Kermlt, and was received by tho President' representative, govern ment olllcials and tho diplomatic corps. He was conducted to tho (lUauubaru palace, facing the beau tiful Rua Pauandu, tho street of a thousand palms. "Tho palace was evacuated by the President, who place it, with 100 servants, at tho disposal of the Roosevelt narty. "Tho visitors stayed a week, and wero tho recipients of regal hospi tality, banquets, government and civil honors, numerous automobile drives and private courtesies from many notables. "Mr. Roosevelt was urged to en tertain whom ho pleased at the pal ace, and forty covers wero regularly laid, although only six or eight wero used. "On his third or fourth night iu Rio do Janeiro. Roosevelt spoko thirty minutes on tho relations be tween the United States and the South American republics, before the Rio du Janeiro Historical and Geographical Society, which hud in vited liiin to South America and inndo him an honorary member, the highest honor it could confer. Tho audience wus, composed of ambuB sudors, generals, leading politicians and members of society, possibly 100 iu all. "Tho night of Oct. 20, Mr. Roosj volt left for Rio Paulo on u special train provided by tho government on tho Central llrazll railroad. Ho Visited points of Interest on tho lino, looked over tho capital and the State of Suo Puulo, ami continued on Ills journey to Rueuos Aires ut the expenso of tho Rruzlllun govern ment. "After all this, the Historical and Geographical Society received from Mr. Roosevelt a bill for $3,000 for his brief lecture. "Already $40,000 or $."i0,000 hnd been spout on tho visitors in enter tainment. The RruzlllaiiH polltoly paid the bill, but they could not con ceal their amazement. "When tho American residents of Rio Janeiro learnod tho facts, their humiliation was inexpressible, Tho story wus published Iu tho Journal do Commerce, I personally asked the Count Candid Mendcs d'Altuel du, owner of tho Journal do Brazil, If the story was truo, and he an swered 'Yes., "I was told that Mr. Roosevelt, while overywhora accepting public and private hospitality on an ex travagant scale, charged for all his speeches. He also harped on tho Monroe doctrlno and pan-American. I solidarity In a way that struck South Americans as offensive "Thcso stories about Mr. Roose volt I do not repeat out or any HI feeling for him, but to emphasize the fact that treatment postpones Indefinitely thnt approachment with South America which wo all want nnd which some of us nro trying hnrd to obtain. "If your lenders behave so," sny the men of Hrnzll, Argentine, I'ru guny nnd Chile, 'whnt must he your rnnk and Hie?' " MAN HATS 1WO OYHTKIt.H AT A SINOI.K SITTING) I St Louis, March 7. In a catch as'Cntch-can," go-as-you-please oyster-eating contest In the grill room of the American hotel, Georgo C Monroe, of Salt Lake City, defeated Albert II. James, of Palmyra, Mo., by n score of 2.10 to 1!)8. Tho oys ter wrestling was witnessed by u large and enthusiastic crowd. .Mr. James, of Pnlmyrn, came to St. Louis with somewhat of u larqo reputation as an oyster eater. Iu frequent trials ho has established .long scores, but the ability of tho Salt Lake man wns somewhat in doubt. That he was a regulation "dark horso" entry wns soon estab lished when ho began to devour tho oysters faster than two big league openers could hand 'em out. James led a good raco up to tho "150th oyster, then began to show fa tigue. At his l(J0th oyster he show ed further signs of distress, and It was evident that ho couldn't last much longer. Monroe.on tho other hnnd, proved u glutton (yea, bo, sure, suro he did, but ue mean n glutton for punish ment). However, comma and other tilings, Monroe went beyond the 200 mark like a man who wns born In the beds of Baltimore bay, and was still strong when the con test was declared at an ofllclal end Stubborn, Annoying.
