AND WHOSE BABY IS IT ?
Where Is the Woman Who
Left It?
SHE COMPLETELY VANISHED
And all the Violence of the Police Has Not Re
vealed Her Location or Identity—She
Knew the City Well.
The woman who left the baby on Mrs.
Tillman's boarding: house steps Thursday
evening, as related in the State Herald
yesterday, has not been found by the
police, though they have evidence that a
woman who registered at the Florence
hotel Thursday morning as Mrs. Rogan
was the one who left it there. Captain
"Weir of the police force furnishes the
State Herald the following statement
with regard to the matter:
Conductor Patterson of the Georgia
Pacific says the lady described in yes
terday's State Herald got aboard the
train in Atlanta at 11 o'clock Wednes
day, coming as far as Austell, Ga., on a
return ticket.
Austell Is the first station this side of
Atlanta. At Austell she gave the con
ductor another return ticket, which
brought her to Birmingham, and asked
the conductor to let the porter get off and
get a picture for her which was on the
platform and in the care of a gentle
man. And she asked the conductor if his
name was Patterson, and being answered
In the affirmative she then said a friend
of hers told her that was Mr. Patterson's
train, and he would assist her with her
baggage.
The conductor says the porter called his
attention to the fact that the basket
sitting by, the lady's side contained a
baby, and that he afterwards noticed her
take it up two or three times during the
trip. Mr. Patterson describes the woman
as being rather small, brunette, very
good looking, about 25 years old, dressed
in black, wearing a black sailor hat and
heavily veiled. She also wore smoked
eye glasses until she reached the Bir
mingham depot, when he noticed that
she had taken them off. He had the
porter help her from the train with her
baggage and put her on (the hack, she
stating that she desired to go to the Flor
ence hotel.
YV non lilt* lldenuian flinvcu ill'- |
tel. according to the hackman's state
ment, the woman gave him her name as
Mrs. Rogan and told him to take her va
lise and picture and check them. The
hackman, noticing the name of Mrs. Chit
wood. Birmingham. Ala., marked on a
tag attached to the valice, asked if she
or Mrs. Chitwood would call for the va
lise. She said that she would call; that
Mrs. Chitwood was a cousin of hers and
that accounted for her name on the va
lise. She also told the hackman to reg
ister her name and return to the hack;
that she wanted to go somewhere else
before going in to the hotel. She directed
the hackman to carry her to the Mercy
Home, where she tried to leave the baby,
but was refused. From the Mercy Home
she directed that she be driven to North
Birmingham, and tried to leave It there
at a private house, but was refused. She
spoke of going to Elyton, where she had
heard there was a family that wanted a
baby to rear. She did not go to Elyton,
however, but was driven back to the
Florence hotel and instructed the driver
to call for her at 4 o’clock. After break
fast she went Into the parlor to wait un
til a fire could be made In her room.
While waiting in the parlor she told Mr.
Stearns, the cleric, that her husband lived
in Selma, but afterwards told Mr. Stearns
her husband was In Atlanta.
She remained at the Florence all day
and was several times seen walking In
the hall apparently very restless.
The hackman called for her at 4 o'clock
as instructed, but she notified him that
she had decided not to use the hack.
About 5:30 o’clock she went down to the
office and settled her bill, leaving the ho
tel immediately thereafter. As she
walked out at the ladles' entrance the
bell boy asked her if she desired to take
her baggage with her. She replied that
she did not.
She carried in one of her hands a small
basket, and on leaving the hotel went up
Nineteenth street towards Third avenue.
She told the bell boy that she would re
turn in ten or fifteen minutes, as she was
only going two or three blocks to her sis
ter's house, and that she and her sister
intended going to Atlanta on the first
train and they would have to hurry to
catch it. The bell boy told her the next
train for Atlanta would not leave until
12:15. At this she showed some nervous
ness, but replied that she expected to
catch a special train that would start
soon.
l ne ooy says ne saw me uauy in me
basket as she left the hotel, but when she
returned she had neither baby nor bas
ket. When she returned she went to her
room, where she remained about ten or
fifteen minutes. When she came down
With her baggage she had changed her
Idress and looked altogether different
to what she did when she went to her
room. She had put on a blue skirt,
striped silk waist and a black cape. She
also wore smoked eye-glasses. She wore
an unusually large, plain gold ring on
third finger of left hand.
Taking her valise she left the hotel,
going down Klnteenth street towards the :
union depot. Further than that the po
lice have been unable to trace her.
The police kept a close watch at the
union depot Wednesday night and yes
terday, but they did not see her get on
any train.
The hackman who drove her to the dif
ferent places Wedensday morning says
she was perfectly familar with the city
and Instructed him to drive her to the
place she desired to go without asking
him any questions as to where those
places were.

An Appeal for Armenians.
New York, Nev. 15.—Ex-minister of the
United States to Turkey, Oscar Strauss,
today received from Rev. Henry C.
Dwight, head of the Bible house mission
In Constantinople, the following cable
gram:
“Armenia laid waste; quarter million
souls destitute. Will you start humani
tarian work, forming strong non-parti
san relief commission Independent of
missionaries?”
Referring to the dispatch Mr. Strauss
said Mr. Dwight had been In Turkey for
twenty years and his statements could
be relied upon. He would not cable thus,
said Mr. Strauss, If he were not thor
oughly assured of the fafcts. There evi
dently must have been some terrible con
flicts between the Turkish troops and
the Armenians. There should be co-op
eration on the part of the various com
mittees which have been formed for this
purpose and steps will be at once taken
with this end In view.
Held Up by Tramps.
Trenton. N. J„ Nov. 15.—In regulation
western style four tramps made an inef
’ '■"-mpt to hold up an expreu
train on the Pennsylvania road at Mor
rlsvllle, just across the river from Penn
sylvania tonight. The Adams Express
train, which Is due here at 10 o'clock, was
brought to a stop near MorrtsviUe by the
display of a danger signal. When the
train came to a stand still four tough
looking specimens of the knights of the
road boarded one of the doors and auda
ciously demanded that the passengers
turn over their- valuables. When the
train crew had recovered from their sur
prise at the unbounded nerve of the act
they tackled the tramps and speedily
hustled them from the car. The men.
however, put up such a good fight that
they were able to break away and made
their escape. The train crew notified the
superintendent of the division from Mor
rlsville and railway officials of the com
pany are now looking for the tramps.
A Town Burnt Up.
Seward, Neb., Nov. 15.—The little town
of Lamora, seven miles west of Seward,
was practically destroyed by fire, this
morning. The only business houses left
standing are the postoffice and a hard
ware store. No estimate of the loss Is
made and the insurance Is little. A fire
just two years ago destroyed half the
town and this nearly finishes It.

THINGS DRAMATIC,
Grau’s Opera company produced "In
diana” at O'Brien’s last night to a small’
but well pleased house. The company
Mr. Grau has with him this year Is one
of the best opera companies that has
been to Birmingham in a long time, and
the performances they are giving night
ly at O’Brien's are superior to a great
many attractions seen here at regular
prices. In his company Mr. Grau has
several artists whose reputations as
singers have been long established and
are deservedly high. Among these are
Mr. J. Aldrich Libby, who has a remark
ably sweet and musical voice that
charms and delights his audience; Miss
Adelaide Randall, with a beautiful face
and figure, and a voice that has won ligr
great popularity wherever It has been
heard. Not much, if any, inferior to
these are Mr. Fred Frcar and Miss Kate
Trayer, who sing very sweetly.
In selecting his chorus Mr. Grau exer
cises great care, with the result that he
has one of the best on the road.
"Indiana" is a light comedy, which af
fords ample opportunities for hearing
these voices to advantage. Last night
Mr. Libby, Mr. Frear, Miss Randall and
Miss Trayer were each encored several
times. Mr. Frear, especially, was very
clever as Matt o’ the Mill. The cast was

"The threatened downpour of rain was

EFFECTS OF HASHEESH.
The Feeling Experienced After Fartaking'
of the Insinuating Drag.
During quite a good half hour I felt
nothing In any way abnormal, ljut when
the moiil was drawing to Its close a subtle
warmth, which came, as it were, lu gust*
to my head and ohost, seomed to permoato
my body with a singular emotion. Later
on the conversation around mo roaohed
my understanding charged with droll
significance. The noise of a fork tapped
against a glass struck my ear us a most
harmonious vibration. The faces of my
companions wore transformed. The par
ticular animal type, which, according to
Lavater, is the basis of every human coun
tenance, appeared to mo strikingly clear.
My right hand neighbor became an eagle:
he on my left grew into an owl, with full
projecting eyes. Immediately in front of
mo the rfian was a lion, while the dootor
himsolf was motamorphosed into a fox.
But the most extraordinary circumstance
was that I read, or seemed to read, thuir
thoughts and penetrate tho depth of their
intelligonoe as easily as one deciphers a
page printed in large type. Like an ex
perienced phrenologist, I could indicate ac
curately tho fores ahd quality of their en
dowments and the naturo of their senti
monts. In this analysis I discovered affini
ties and contrasts which would have
escaped one in a normal state.
Objects around me seemed little by llt
tlo to clothe themselves in funtosttc garb,
tho arabesques on the walls revealed them
selves to me In rich rhymes of attractive
poesy, sometimes melancholy, but more
gonerally flalug tj> an exaggerated lyrisra
or to tfabscendont buSoonory. The porce
lain vases, the bottles, tho glasses spar
kling on the tabl'e-^all took the most lu
dicrous forms. At the same time I felt
creeping all around the region of my hoart
a tickling prossurb to squoeze out, as It
were, with gentle force a laugh whioh
burst forth with nolty violence.
My neighbors, too, seemed subjected to
nn idoi ical Influence, for I saw their
faces unfold like poodles—victims of bois
terous hilarity, qoldlng tboir sides and
rolling about from right to loft, their
oountcnances swollen like Titans. My
voice seemed to have gained considerable
strength, for wbCn I spoke it was os if it
were a dlsoh&rgeof cannon, and long after
I had u#.ered a sentence I heard in my
brain tho reverberation, as It wfiro, of dis
tant thunder.—Cornhill Magazine.
Bo Don’t Throw Any at the Duchess.
There is to he no more rloe throwing at
English weddings in high society. The
substitute will be papor confetti. There
have been several acoidents during the
past season caused by grains of rice strik
ing the eyes of the bride or groom; lienee
the prejudice against the praotioe. The
oonfetti are about half tho size of a letter
wafer and stampod in gold, silver and all
oolors.—Now York Sun.
$40u,uu0,000 AND A PEERAGE.
Another Victim of the Delusion of Un
claimed Fortunes of Englsnd.
“This is No. 1801," said a state depart
ment offloial to whom the inquiries about
unolaimed fortunes in England are re
ferred. Tho particular case ho spoke of
was the Styi Francisco dispatch saying
that Joseph Ponltney, living in humble
ciroumstahtes in that city, had fallen heir
to something like 1400,000,000 and to a
seat in the upper house of the British par
liament.
“The whole story,” said the state de
partment official, “is necessarily trash.
Embassador Bayard has more than once
replied to similar publications that there
are no great estates unolaimed In England
and Bo unclaimed peerages. Even if Joslah
Poultney were nble to establish tho faot
that lie was a descendant of ‘Sir William
Poultney, prominent in the social and po
litical history of England,' that would not
entitle him to a seat in the house of lords.
“Tlie title ‘sir1 is bestowed only on
knights and baronets, none of whom iB
entitled to admission to tbe house of lords.
It seems impossible to stamp out this de
lusion about vast unolaimed estates and
dormant peerages in England. Thousands
of credulous Americans are swindled ovury
year by the pretenses put forward by local
sharks in London with agencies in New
York.”—New York Sun.
THE SMALLPOX MICROBE,
Discovered at Last to Be a Jellylike Or
ganism.
At last tho mlorobe of smallpox lias
been found. Or. Guarieri of Pisa, Italy,
Is credited with the discovery, which is
confirmed by Professor Pfeiffer of Berlin.
The germ is not a bacterium, but au
amoeba—that is to say, a .lellyliko organ
ism representing one of the lowest forms
of animal life.
"An amoeba Is a bit of protoplasm with
power of motion,” said Dr. William Gray,
bacteriologist of the Army Medical mu
scum in Washington. “It absorbs food at
any part of its surface, expels the waste
from any ether part and lias no particular
shape. You would find, if you were able
to trace yourdescent far enough, that you
yourself had nil uniujba for an ancestor.
As for tho smallpox germ, many attempts
have boon made to find it, though in vain
lilthorto. Various micro-organisms have
been separated from the matter contained
In the postules of tho dlsoaso, but none of
them would produce the latter in animals
by inoculutlon. Experiments will be made
with this microbe by infecting beasts with
It and drawing off the serum from their
blood for use as diphtheria serum is em
ployed.”—Now ifork World.
MOUNTAINS IN THE SEA.
A Cable Detour Around a Kar.ffc Seventy
five Miles Long.
There exists in tho grout ocean between
Australiu and New Caledonia a range of
mighty submarine mountains, whoso Time
stone tops rise within 300 fathoms of tha
surface. The discovery of these peaks,
rising sheer 7,600 feet from the bottom of
tho deep son, was made by the men who
have just finished laying the first section
of the transpacific cable. Sir Audrey
Coote, who was at the head of the cnblo
expedition, arrived here yestorduy on tho
steamor Alameda from Sydnoy, New
South Wales. He said:
“The sea from Australiu to Now Cale
donia has boen surveyed by a British and
by an Amorican vessel. Your Albatross
went there and did somo very good work,
but, as it happened, both tills expedition
and the other missed the strange feature of
the oCean that I can describe. We had an
ticipated no greiyt difficulty in laying the
oable seotion, ail(l did not find ahy until
suddenly tho botthm of the qoenn began to
rlso. Wo wore fijlcod Ijo out tho cablo thore
in midocean arid to bijoy up the ends. It
was then found that what had hindered us
was a rango of submarine mountains.
“There Is nothing else like this In the
world that I know of. Tho mountains rlso
In abrupt peaks, and are hard llmostone
and granite, fly careful measurement wo
found thut the peaks were more than 7,000
foot on the average and the highost of
them 7,600 feet from the bottom of tho
ocean. Less than liOQ fathoms from the
surfaco of tho water wo found the tops of
the highest mountains. The range extends
for Dearly 76 miles—that Is, measuring
from tho extreme northerly to the extreme
southerly point. To lay the cable around
this range took 48 miles more Of cablo than
we had counted on. We had to go around
tho peaks as a railroad would go around a
mountain on land. "—Letter to San Fran
cisco Chronicle.

It’s a slow process,
usually—education, development, and
growth. But it hasn’t been so with
Pearline. Pearline’s success has
been a wonder, from the start. All the
more so when you consider the
many poor imitations of it, which
claim to make washing easy.
These things tend to confuse
people, of course. They’re
forced on the public by
peddlers, prizes, substi
tution, etc. No doubt
they’re often thought to
be the same as Pearline.
We protest. Don’t judge

"THE MORE YOU SAY THE LESS PEOPLE
REMEMBER.” ONE WORD WITH YOU
SAPOLIO
THE BEST OF ALL
In All Things All The Time
THERE are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
them all there must be one BEST. THE BEST is THE
EQUITABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the
report of the Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New
York on the examination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results
of maturing policies; 3, for statement of death claims paid in
1894. Then you will know the three great reasons of The
Equitable’s supremacy: First:, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders ; third,
the promptness of its payments and liberality of its settlements.
