The following is her leg:

20 miles.

A MISSTATEMENT CORRECTED.
Queer Doings at Cincinnati in Regard te
the Remains of Mrs. ilramhle.
Monday's Ledger, under the caption
of "A Misfit Christian," made reference
te the queer doings of the Rev. J. AIcx.
Markhnm, Superintendent of the Cincin
nati Union Bethel, relating te the body
of Mrs. Ella Bramble, who had died at
the Cincinnati Hospital the week picvi picvi
eusly This articie from The Ledger was
appropriated by The Cincinnati Pest cor
respondent, nnd sent as a "special" te
that paper in this form-
AN UNDERTAKER KICKS
Bi cause a Potl-Mertem Was Held On a
Bedy.
Maysvii.le, Ky., May 3. Special
Mrs. Ella Bramble, daughter of Themas
Sartnln, of this county, who died nt the
Cincinnati Hospital last Friday, was bu
ried near here. O. A. Means, the under
taker, informs llu Pout that the body
was horribly mutilated, being split open
from the pelvic bone te the carotid artery,
and that the head had been sawed
through.
Mrs. Bramble died at the Hospital of
meningitis, and n post-lnertem wns made.
Superintendent McLean says the relatives
were notified, and that they made no ob
jection te the pest-mortem
The trouble was that the body was al
lowed te remain in the Hospital 'for three
days befere it was taken away; and under
the circumstances it could scarcely be
expected te be in geed condition, the
warm weather considered.
Tlie last two paragraphs were added by
The Pest; and it is mainly te these thut
we address a few remarks by way of cor
rection. Mrs. Bramble did net die en Friday,
but en .Monday, as the following postal
from Rev. Mnrkham, Superintendent of
the Union Bethel, teT. D. Sartain, father
of Mrs. Bramble, will show :
Cincinnati, O., Apiil 25th, 1892.
Mu Dear Sir: I am very sorry te in
form you of the death of your daughter,
Mrs. Bramble, which occurred a few
minutes age
What shall I de with her, or will you
ceme and attend te matters yourself?
Respectfully,
J. A. Markham.
Mr. Sartain lives at Cottageville, Lewis
county ; the postal card the only " noti
fication" the relatives or friends of Mrs.
Bramble ever had was mailed nt " Cin
cinnati, April 25th, 11.30 a. m.," ns shown
by the Posteftlco stamp; it did net, and
could net, reach Mr. Sartain before the
forenoon of Tuesday, 20th; Mr. Sartain
walked from Cottageville te Maysville
about ten miles arriving here in time te
take train Ne. 1 en the C. and O. for
Cincinnati at 0:20 a. m. of Wednesday.
He was accompanied te Cincinnati by
Morten M. Pollock, representing Q. A.
Means & Sen the undertakers. They
reached the Union Bethel at 9 o'clock,
where they were delayed about at hour
by Rev. Markham, who told thorn he
was in telephonic communication with
the Beard of Health in regard te the
matter.
Tired out with Mr. Markham's monkey
business, Mr. Pollock stnrtcd with Mr.
Sartain te lenve the Bethel, when Mark
ham objected te their going, but with
out avail.
They went nt once te the Cincinneti
Hospital, reaching there Wednesday
mei nlng at 10 o'clock or thereabouts.
This disposes of the etitire time between
the denth of the peer woman and the
arrival of her father te claim the body,
from 11 30 a. m. Monday when netice of
her death wns mailed at Cincinnati, and
10 n. m. of Wednesday, when Mr. Sartain
and Mr. Pollock reached the Hospital a
tritle less than two days from start te
finish, and less than one day nfter Mr.
Sartain received notice of her death. Se
the body did net "remain iu the Hospital
three days befere it was taken away," as
claimed in The Pest's nrticle. And when
nil the circumstances are considercd, the
unavoidable difficulty in communicating
with Mr. Sartain, his long walk te catch
i train at Maysvillc, and his subsequent
delay at the Bethel by the Rev. Markham,
all right-thinking people will ngree that
he reached the cerpse of his daughter in
geed time under the most adverse circum
stances. Arriving nt the Hospital, the first step
necessary was a certificate from the at
tending phj'slcian; next, n permit from
the Beard of Health allowing the removal
of the body. These matters were at
tended te in rapid succession and with
out the slightest friction. When the
former nnnoynnce and delay nt the Bcthel
was referrcd te, one of the Health efilr
cials is said te have remarked, " What In
the devil did he (Markham) have te de
with it?"
After the completion of all these tedious
details, the body, mutilated as origi
nally described in The Ledoer and
copied Inte The Pert article, was cof
fined and brought te this city, whero it
was decently dressed and given a Christ
Ian burial at Bethany, n country church
yard near the early home of the peer
woman, and where the old father may
leek upon the mound that covers the re
mains of his loved one.
Having followed thia mysterious ease
from the beglnnlng te the end showing
Just when and hew the friends were no
tified, and hew Impossible it was for
them te have either consented or objected
te a pest mortem, ive must conclude
that Mr, McLean is net Justified in his
assertion, as stated by The Pest, that
"the relatives were notified and that
they offered no objections te the post
mortem." It might also be interesting te knew
Just where this posl-meitcm was held,
whether in the Hospital or in seme Med
ical College, and Just why it was that
the Bethel manager wanted matters de
layed at his end of the line.
It Is new in order for some one else te
kick.

SECRET POLICE
Nip in the Bud the Clever Scheme
of a Weman.
Beautiful Mrs. Kracmer, a Socialist,
Foiled in an Attempt .
Te Hull en til Itnllef Ship Tyt1rlird 8li
Jehn the Order of th Hnd Cre for
the Purpe of Kntc'rlii ltu!a,
MZt Whr She U Set Wanted.
Nkw Yenic, May S. The action of the
agents of the Russian secret police in
this country has nipped in the bud one
of the best laid plans te elude the vigil
ance of the authorities of that empire
that lias been heard of for some time.
The plan was for a woman, a strong
nympathizcr with socialism lind oilier
vigorous political theories jiet favored
by the Russian authorities, te go te St.
Petersburg as an American, and as .an
envoy of the International Red Cress,
the organisatien which Is neiv laboring
te assist the starving peasants el '
Samara.
The woman in question is Mrs. The The
ephila Kracmer, the wife of Mr. Felix
Kracmer, a trusted empleye of Stein-
ay & Sens. Mrs. Kraetncr is a tall
and iH'aittiful woman. She Is graceful
iu maiiin'r, and has u personal magnet
ism which is powerful in influencing
the men of whom she desires te obtain a
concession. A Pele by birth, she speaks
Russian fluently, and is also a master of
the English lnngungc.
According te her own statements, in
the alUdavit she made net two weeks
age, when she obtained her linal nat
uralization papers in New Yerk as an
American citlun, she was born en De
cember 21, IhtW, in Poland. But these
who knew her assert that she can net
be younger than H!5. Her father left
Russia when she was very young, and
settled in Cincinnati under the name of
Smith. Her mother, new 60 years of
age, Ls living in Chllllcethe.
Mrs. Kracmer hud some time age se
cured the consent of Mrs. Themas, who
sailed te Russia, te distribute the famine
cargo of the Tyuehead. The Russian
dlpleinntcs at Washington learned this
fact and called upon Mrs. Themas, and
the New Yerk consul called en her, de
manding Mi-h. Kracmer should net go
te Russia. The consul said that he hed
been making an investigation regard
injf Mrs. Kruemer, and that he belleved
she was merely taking the bedge of the
Red Cress te secure entrance iute Rus
ila. H said, also, that he had for
warded her "biography" te the Third
section, which is the Russian political
secret police. Mrs. Themas assured
Mr Olarewsky that she would net travel
w ith Mrs. Kracmer.
On Saturday, April 23, Mrs. Themas
received a telegram from Philadelphia,
which said merely; "Mrs. K. has
started."
Mrs. Themas docs net knew whether
thl". means that Mrs. Kracmer hasi
Started for Russia or net. She certain
ly did net sail from this pert unless she
went under an assumed name. But
that is the last that has been heard of
her.
PECULIAR INVENTION.
An Kloctrle Ilrmh Which KIIU Om
and H'reU.
Mkmi'ihs, Tenn., May 5. A curious
device, the Invention of Capt. Albert A.
Sharp, formerly superintendent of the
Memphis division of the Louisville, New
Orleans and Texas railroad, was tested
here, and the experiment was
a success. The invention is
an electrical brush, having
for its purpese the killing of grass and
weeds. It should be stated that the
greatest obstacles trains have te con
tend with in the south is the grass,
and the cost of keeping the track clear
is no small item. The peculiarity of
the clectiical brush U that it thoroughly
kills every blade of grass that it
touches. Capt. Sharp Tiled a caveat for
his invention several months age, and
new, since the tests made have proven
5 e successful, a patent will at ence be
becurcd.
