OFFICIAL DlllEUTOitY General C?ttwrti5cr.irntc LOCKED li INSANE (cnrral ttujcrtistmrnts. BITTER EXPERIENCE OF A FORMER RUSSIAN MAJOR. "VOim lie Told the Truth, Major 6 aero w Wm Declared to Be Insane, bat by Re sorting to CleTer Lie Be TVm Set at ZJberty III But Was Successful. F. E. O. Sucrow, the son of a gallant Russian colonel, anl who himself was cnce a major in the same army, has recently been released from the "Ward's island insane asylum by a clever ruse. Its success, ho thinks, is proof enough, if ho had no other, that he U mentally sound. Major Sucrow was at one time wealthy. Until within a few years he did not find it necessary to work for a living. He is of noble family and was a great yachts man, lie can recite offhand tho com plete record of all the international yacht races and says that ho has twice been around the world in a yacht of his own. lie is about 58 years old and (peaks and writes well in English. He lives at 43 Great Jones street. He has not been on good terms with his family for years, and his annual income was stopped two years ago. When this happened, he sought some business enterprise, and his attention was called to a discovery for making hair grow on bald heads, which had been successfully tried in two or three cases. Ho bought a controlling interest in the restorative and commenced to boom it. He had read a great deal about Dr. Chauncey M. Depew and thought it was a pity that so great a man should bo com pelled to go through life baldheaded. Furthermore, he considered that his for tune would be made if he could be the means of giving Dr. Depew a genuine pompadour. "With this object in view Ma jor Sucrow fixed up a package of his restorative and called on Dr. Depew. The package, which was neatly tied up, was about 11 inches long, 9 inches wide and 3i inches thick. His visit was just after the attempt to blow up Russell Sage by dynamite. "When Dr. Depew saw tho package and heard tho major's foreign accent, he thought it was a crank and remarked hurriedly: "My dear fellow, I am very busily en gaged today on important business that cannot be delayed. Leave me your name and address, and I shall send you a letter making an appointment for an interview for some other day." Sucrow went away and waited for the letter, which never came. In its place appeared an agent of the department of charities and correction, who questioned him concerning his personal history and as to the effectiveness of his tonic. Su crow was then taken before Dr. "Wash burn of 43. Irving place and declared insane. He spent one night at the in sane pavilion at Bellevue hospital and was then sent to "Ward's island. He was examined several times by different physicians at Bellevue and at "Ward's island and was questioned as to the story he had first told. "My statements were all true," 6aid Major Sucrow yesterday, "and so I had to conscientiously persist in them.' After his transfer to the island he kept the attention of the physicians there cen tered upon him by his frequent declara tions that ho was not insane, accompa nied by applications for his release. For tho first five months of his incarceration he made these applications at least every week, and sometimes as often as twice or three times a week. At the end of five months, just as ho was beginning to de spair cf ever regaining his liberty, he hit upon a new idea. "I began to change my system," he said. "For the next month I did not say a word about insanity, nor did I make any further request for my discharge. At the end of the month I went to Mr. Peppard, tho head attendant, and asked for permission to write to Dr. asn bum. It was readily granted, but I knew that tho missive would be opened and read before it was sent, if, indeed, it was sent at alL "The substance of my letter to Dr. Washburn was that I now realized I was not in my right mind when I was committed, that the statements I had mado about belonging to a noblo Rus sian family and having once teen rich were delusions that had now been dis pelled, and that I had made a gre:t mis take in having anything to do with the hair tonic busincs?. I told the doctor that I was a humble mechanic and could earn about $18 per week at my trade. 1 also said that this was a good lime of the year to Becr.ro employment, and I wanted to bo released. A few days later I wroto letters to Drs. Adamson, Camp bell and Pettit of exactly the same im port. I had tho story down fine and did not vary a single detail In any of them. "A few days afterward Dr. Pettit sent for me and made an examination, during which he asked mo to tell my story again. Then at Ehort intervals Drs. Adamson and Campbell examined me and asked questions regarding my latest story. I told it to them all exactly as I had written it in the four letters, and as a result I was in a short time discharged as cured. "But," added Major Sucrow, "here is just where the point comes in. The story which proved to the doctors at Ward's island that I was no longer in sane, and secured my release was the only lie I had told in connection with my whole experience as a 'lunatic' Now that I have been set free I repudiate it. That shows how far circumstantial evi dence will go, and how little some of these doctors, upon whom rest tho gravest responsibilities, know about the matters upon which they are supposed to be spe cialists." Major Sucrow says he has had enough cf America. IIo is going to remain here just long enough to raise funds to return to Europe. New York "World. His Xanhters Letter. "Dear father, we are all well and hap py. The baby has grown ever Bo'much and has a great deal more sense than he used to have. Hoping the saxae of yon, I remain your daughter Molly." The Illustrated. Tourists Oaido That popular work, "Tarn Tourists GriDa Through th Hawahah Isi auds," is meeting with a steady sale both at home and abroad.

Copies in wrappers y be had at tho publication office, 46 Merchant street, and at the News Dealers. Price CO cent?. Mr. Bryar.t's Books and the Tilden Trut. Miss Julia S. Bryant, the younger daughter of the poet, has presented to the trustees of the Tilden trust nearly 1,000 volumes selected from her father's library at Roelyn. To the books were added some interesting old pamphlets and several medallions taken from the same collection. In reply to their reso lutions gratefully acknowledging this do nation the trustees have received the fol lowing letter from Miss Bryant, dated Paris, Nov. 24, and addressed to the Hon. John Bigelow, president cf the trust: I was much gratified by receiving yes terday your very kind letter, and with it the copy of the resolutions of thanks from the Tilden trust for my gifts to the Tilden library. It is indeed a source of pleasure to me to know that these works are whero they will be especially valued as having formed a part of my father's library at Roslyn; that they will be well cared for, and that they will belong to an institution which has ray warmest sympathies. Should the trustees desire it, I may later be able to make very considerable additions to my gift from the books and articles collected by my father and left to me. He had a great regard for Mr. Tilden, who was one of his oldest and most trusted friends, and I am sure that he would have been glad to have his name associated, even in this modest way, with Mr. Tilden's in 6uch a noblo enterpri se. Critic. Shaves Her Husband. "There is a society woman in this city who shaves her husband three times a week," said a smooth faced man at a desk in the corner of the office. "It is 60, and I know it. I ought to know it, for I'm the man. The way of it is this: Last summer we lived in the country, and in the evening, three times a week, I used to come into town to get shaved. Of course I would meet somebody I knew and often would go home late. Madam didn't say anything, but she no doubt kept up a diligent thinking, and one day he said: 'Dearie, I hate to have you go in town to get shaved; it keeps you up late and gives you such headaches. Eriiig me out a razor, and I'll wager I can shave you. "Of course I hooted at the idea, but she persisted and claimed she was far mere intelligent than the average barber, be sides being equally talkative, so I finally humored her by getting a nice case of razors. Well, sir, she cut me slightly only once or twice and can now shave me like an expert. Did you ever see a cleaner face than mine? I pay her a fancy price, of course, but she promises to take mo to Europe some day on her barber shop perquisites." Chicago Times. Hope for Liberal Men. A Texas paper lately assured its read ers that "a man might possibly favor woman suffrage and yet at last find a welcome at the gate of heaven." This assurance relieves U3 of any doubts as to the fate of our friends Charles Kingsley, Henry "Ward Beecher, George "William Curtis, J. G. "Whittier and many others. The Texan editor was born too late. He should have lived in tho time of Boswell, that abject admirer of Dr. Johnson, who was present on the occasion of a discus sion as to our prospects after death. A Quaker lady present ventured to express the hope "that in another world the sexes would bo equal," and was put down by Boswell with the retort: "That i3 being too ambitious, madam. "We might as well desire to be equal with the angels." Wives and Daughters. Society Superstition. One of our society girls who was mar ried recently had her wedding gown made by a "swell" modiste in the empire style. One of her dearest friends told her that it would be an ill omen to wear it, as it was so closely allied to the great Napoleon's divorced wife. This was too much for the superstitious bride elect, and she ordered an entirely new bodice to be made. In these days of uncertainty things which bring ill luck are not desirable, and, like being married in black and turning back after you have once started on your honeymoon, sre best avoided. Washington News. Women in the Greenhouse Trade. How many women are studying the greenhouse trade in this country? None, so far as we know; yet what a peaceful and happy as well as profitable field it is! It is one which is specially adapted to women also, as the large feminine cor respondence of horticultural journals shows. There is a ladies horticultural college at Swanley, England, where a few students are taking a careful course in this work; but they are so few that several recent applications for ladies to take the entire charge of greenhouses, hothouses and flower gardens could not be entertained. New York Tribune. Didn't Mention Her Name. That Oregon girl who the other night saved a whole train from destruction and then went on her way home, not even telling her name, is a genuine heroine. The report says: "She was on her way home from a party when she discovered that a rail had been removed on a high trestle, and thereupon she procured a lantern and signaled the approaching train just in time. Having done a heroic deed and saved many travelers from a horrible death, she modestly went on her way without waiting for thanks or re ward and without mentioning her name. Chicago Inter Ocean. Legal Knowledge for Women. Mrs.-Mary Hall, attorney-at-law, con ducts a class in civil government at Woodside. The class is proving a great success. One important branch, that of the different property and marriage laws of each state, will probably be taught so that each young pupil will be convers ant with the laws of her own state, at least concerning matters so important to her interests. The girls and women of the past have been almost un pardonably Ignorant of them, resulting, in many lases, in disastrous consequences to them jelves. Hartford Times. For Sale. A SURVEYOR'S OUTFIT.
