Abruptly Turn and Leave After An swering tbe Questions, and Kil ters Her Carriage for a Drive. Concord, N. II.. Oct. 31. A repre sentative of the Associated Press who interviewed Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy, head of the Christian Science cult, tea years ago, went to Pleasant View, Mrs. Eddy's home, and was granted another interview. Although Mrs. Eddy shows her advanced age in some respects her MRS. MARY BAKER G. EDDY. FAs sbe looked in af-ure published iu 1S99.1 voice was clear aisd strong, and she gave no evidence of decrepitude or of any weakness not to be expected of , a woman in her SGth year. The in terview, which was granted to half a score of newspnperrepresentatives who had assembled in this city after the publication of sensational stories in connection with Mrs. Eddy's health, was arranged by H. Cornell Wilson, head of the Christian Science publish ing committee. Declined to Enter the ltonm. In addition there were present Her man 11. Hering, first reader of tha local Christian Science society; Ed ward M.l'earson, secretary of the state of New Hampshire; Wilson and Calvin A. Fry Mrs. Eddy's secretary. When the newf-pap-? representatives had been seated ia Mrs. Eddy's parlors Frye announced Mrs. Eddy. She walked to the doorway and stood, uuassisted, before ber interviewers. She did not advance beyond the threshold of the door, and when it was Been that she would not enter the room for a pro longed interview a woman reporter was delegated to talk to her. Did Not Want to Answer Question. Mrs. Eddy appeared to be more anx ious to demonstrate that she was in good physical condition than to answer Inquiries Just three questions bad been asked by the interviewer when Mrs. Eddy turned, spoke a word to her secretary, qnd abruptly started for ber carriage to take her customary after noon drive. The interviewers were left in the parlors with numberless questions on their lips, but without an opportunity to ask them. SHE CUT THEM VERY SHORT Verbatim Report of the Interview Walk to Her Carriage. "Are you in perfect physical health, Mrs. Eddy?" was the first question asked after Mrs. Eddy had made ber appearance. "I am," was the brief re ply, given with distinct enunciation. 'Have you any other physician than God?" "No, indeed," answered Mrs. Eddy with emphasis and when she added slowly and solemnly: "The ever lasting arm? are around and above me, which is enough." "Do you take a daily drive?" "I do." replied Mrs. Eddy. It wss at this point in the interview that Mrs. Eddy unexpectedly indicated that the interview was at an end, for she turned without another word and walked to the porte cochere at the front of the house, where her carriage was awaiting to convey her on her us ual drive about the city. She was es corted to the carriage by Strang and Frye. As Strang assisted Mrs. Eddy into the vehicle Frye. who wore a foot man's uniform, mounted the driver's j seat alongside of the coachman, andj j Mrs. Eddy was then driven away. Mrs. Eddy was attired for her drive in nn ermine cloak which hung loosely from her shoulders nearly to the ground, and she wore a hat and gloves. As if to dispose of the allegation that a member of her household had an many occasions impersonated her Mrs. Eddy, or some member of her house hold, caused to be present at the In terview Mrs. Pamalia J. Leonard, of Brooklyn, N. Y., who, it has been said, ! had been In the habit of driving in Mrs. Eddy's carriage. There was but one similarity to be noted, and that was the abundance of snow white hair which adorned the beads of both wo men. Secretary of State Tearson, a personal acquaintance of Mrs. Eddy, but not a Christian Scientist, assured! the newspaper representatives that the woman who stood before them was Mrs. Eddy.

Treat, treasurer of the United States, has submitted his annual report to the secretary of the treasury and In refer ence to the more noticeable transac-1 tionr, said in part: "The net result of j the wdinary revenues ud expenditures j for the fiscal year 1D0G was a surplus of $23.t;00.322, as compared with aj deficit of $23,001,228 for the preceding ji ar.

"The treasury holdings of gold con tinue to attract the attention of finan ciers, both at home and abroad.

The gold coin and bullion in the treasury June 30. 1P0T, amounted to $706,592,300, and at the close of the fiscal year 1900 ill had advanced to $S07.0ol,C90. Fy Oct. 20 it attained a maximum at $377,290,- i o;Q Small Currency Wanted. "The pressure from bankers and oth ers for larger and more regular sup ply of small denominations of currency continues unabated, while the treasury is without resources for the issue of small bills to comply with their urgent requests. It is to be expected that congress will ultimately enact the leg islation that it has under considera tion, which will bring full relief from tbe existing conditions."
