Some Facts About the Rosebud Mrs
Scoville Gave Her Brother-He
Did Not " 'atch On."
The cabinet of curiosities .at the
dead lotter office, says the :Ohicago
News' Washington correspondent
contains among other articles of in
terest, a lock of Ch les Guiteau's
hair. It was sent by t~e assassin to
young lady who had written him
sympathizing letter, but by some
means it was never alled; for, and
eventually found its .'ay to the dead
letter office. Gon. (etScker, warder
of the jail, says Guitean received more
letters of condolence than people
were aware of. For weeks after the
assassination his mail was very heavy.
and would frequently exceed a hun
dred letters a day. Most of these
communications were abusive in char
acter, and in many cases threatening.
Occasionally a crank like Guitear
would write anonymously, commend
ing him for his act.
"Is it true that Mrs. Scovillo at
tempted to cheat the gallows by pro
senting her brother with a poisoned
bouquet?" was asked.
"It is," replied the General. "The
night preceding the execution Mrs.
Scoville called to see him. She was
told she could not, except in my pres
ence, and that I was at home ill. She
carried in her hand ; beautiful bou
quet of roses. She asked permission
to present them to her brother, which
was granted. As she handed the flow
ers through the grating she said.
"Notice the center flower especially.
It is white and emblematic of your
purity and loftiness of purpose." She
then departed. I took the notion to
drive over to the jail that night. My
responsibility was rapidly drawing to
an end, and I wanted to be sure ev
erything was in shipshape. When I
was told about the bouquet I sent for
it. It did not occur to me that there
was anything wrong about it. I mere
ly asked for it as a matter of precau
tion. Upon being told what MIrs.
Scoville had said about the white
flower I examined it more carefully
and discovered that it was detached
from the others and supported by a
long, slender stick, which had evi
dently been forced into the center of
the bouquet after it was finished. This
rather unusual arrangement aroused
my suspicions. While examining it
more closely a white, powdery sub
stance fell into my hand. I sent for
one of the chemists of the Smithso
nian institute, who pronounced it ar
senic, in sufficient quantities to kill
half a dozen men. Mrs. Scoville's
idea was for Guiteau to chew the bud,
for it was really nothing more, and in
this way escape the gallows by com
mitting suicide.
"Why didn't Guitean do this?"
"I don't think he understood th
significance of his sister's remarks. I
he had it is not probable that h
would have taken advantage of he
Spartan kindness. He did not abai
don all hope of a reprieve until tb
last moment. He was an arrant coy
"Was there any affection betwee
him and his family?" -
"Very little. Guiteanu himself wt
as cold as a fish. I shall never forgo
Mrs. Scoville's last interview wit
him. She said: 'Well, Charlie, I sul
pose you must die. I trust you ar
S"'Oh yes,' grunted the assassin, 'I'r
all right.'
"'And you'll go to heaven, Charli
and you'll meet our mother ther
You'll he glad to see her, won't you,
"'I don't know whether I will o
not,' replied Guiteau, to whom. th
conversation was obviously unpleas
ant. 'I suppose if she comes aroun
to see me I shall treat her decentl;
but I don't care anything about he
I never took much stock in my rely
tions, anyhow."'
Nineteen years ago a female infai
was left with an Irishwoman in Boi
-ton. The name of the child was nc
given, and the only clew was a hanc
kerchief bearing a name, which w€
with the child's effects. All trace a
the babe's family connections wei
lost, and the little one grew up in ig
norance of its father or mother, care
for by the old woman and her famil:
After a lapse of years a peculia
growth appeared on the lid of oneo
the child's eyes. She was taken tos
ocenlist, who rem rked on the sings
larity of the case, and said that bh
hid operated pona one other simila
case in the co of his practice, an
that was upon the eyedot a wealh
lady in a eity~ nea to& Rgre y
the lon 1idd cew to
i -ens h person who 4eo
3 j-it t&ue estr
was called in, an it was in the pr
cess of a long invesfigation developc
that the name upon the handkerc1is
was the name of the manUfactur-o
wife and the girl's mother. The gi
was several months ago confronts
with her father and mother. A ssetti
ment by the payment of several thoi
sand dollars for back board, and dan
ages, so the story goes, and an annu
ty of $1,500 for the daughter, now
young lady, was effected, it is saii
When the child was abandoned tI
husband of the lady was a poor boo]
keeper. It was feared, it is said, th;
the birth of the baby would anger
relative of the mother, who was po
sessed of means, and so the child wt
given up. To-day the book-keeper:
a wealthy manufacturor. He has
family who have grown up in entii
ignorance of the existence of the:
eldest sister.--Boston Journal.
It happened in the first year of Al
exander III.'s reign, to a Samara no
e bleman of the name of K. He wanted
;d a Governmental allowance of 200,00(
rubles to start his leather manufac
le tory. Many big Russian manufactu
rers had got considerable sums of
Is State money "as an encouragement of
s national industry." All was arranged
10 well. Everybody who had to be bribed
was bribed. Mr. K. was quite sure of
>n success, so far that, returning to Sa
mh mara, he did not choose to wait the
few weeks that remained before the
d Emperor's definitive confirmation, and
y. borrowed from a Tartar merchant the
ir sum promised him, and set to work at
lo once. Great was his disappointment
to and despair when he received a tele
gram stating bluntly that the Empe
to ror did not confirm the allowance. He
rushes to St. Petersburg to his pro
tectors. How? What is it? Nobody
r know. All was done right as promis
eed. But the Emperor refused. A
whim took him. It is quite incompre
hensible. We cannot help it." Mr.
K. deemed himself a ruined man. But
to one fine morning, when he left the
ly Minister of the Interior he was fol
lowed by Holonatchalink, head clerb
a of one of the numerous offices. The
i_ man asked him plainly if he consent
zy ed to give him the sum of 10,000 ru
is bles if the thing was put right. Mr.
, K. exclaimed he would be happy tc
it give even 20,000. The clerk refused
b- to give any explanation and they part
)r ed. The next month Mr. K. received
a telegram stating the allowance was
r- granted by the Emperor. Full of ex
ill ultation, he rushed once more to St.
, Petersburg, received his 200,000
d, found the clerk his benefactor and
in presented him the 20,000 rubles prom
ised. Touched by such an act o0
honesty and faithfulness to a promise
escaped in a momentary excitement
1e the clerk said he wanted to trannuil
I ize the conscience of Mr. K. by ex
ae plaining to him that in obtaining fo'
er him the allowance no underhand
n- means were employed, and all was
ae done with complete honesty and fair
ness. He'then told him the small do
vice which he used to make the Em
3a peror change his mind. "We have,'
he said, "always a great number 0:
as things to present for the Emperor's
et examination. And we know before
th hand what he will be pleased to read
p and what will be unpleasant. Now
re all depends on the order in which
petition such as yours is placed. I:
m before it we put four or five thingi
which will be unpleasant to the Em
e, peror, arriving at your petition he wil
.e be in bad humor and will refuse it
?" If, on the contrary, we put before ii
or one after another five things that wil
e be agreeable to him to read, on reach
- ing your petition he will be put ii
id good humor and will grant it at once.'
Y7 Nothing more simple, indeed. The
r. fact is perfectly authentic and would
a- be difficult to invent..

1 STRcK A Bov NzA.--Jackson Bros.,
r who took the contract for the excava
tion of the Union Block, on Main
street, Helena, struck a bonanza when
1 they got that contract. They took
t the job, agreeing to remove the dirt
at 45 cents a yard. The total amount
- they- received for excavating was
S$tM61.45, and out of this, clear of all
- expenses, they made $331. But bet
ter still, they found a streak of "pay
dirt" in the excavation, which is in the
I famous Last Chance gulch. They
took out seventy-one loads of this pay
1 dirt and washed it through sluices for
i the gold it contained. The result more
than answered their expectations.
From the seventy-one loads of dirt
they got $504 in gold dust, which they
- sold to the U. S. Assay Office here.
Total gain on the job, $835. If any
- one can beat that job of excavating
iwe want to hear from him.-Herald.
A Pno:nsixoN INDfaSMY.-The cattle
- interest is now creating considerable
1 interest among our moneyed men, a
- great many of whom are turning their
- attention in this direction. The fact
t that the calving season is now over
- and the per cent. of increase for the
- past season was so unusually large,
and that nearly all the cattle men are
1 now shipping or preparing to ship to
the eastern markets for beef, and that
t they will receive handsome prices, is
making the average man who has
g money to invest feel like taking in
- some of the fat things of the country
f himself. A great deal of attention is
- being paid to the shipping of blooded
t cattle, some very fine grades, and a

being sent to the various ranges

L a:ns Losr.-Col. Hudnutt is in
s receipt of advices from Flat Willow,
1- Meagher county, stating that the re
g cent heavy rains have had most dis
d astrous effects upon the flocks in that
)f section. The storm of the 7th inst.
i- was the most severe upon the sheep.
Le The band of the Montana Sheep Co.
d was scattered in all directions by the
1 storm of the 7th inst., but 700 had
been recovered. Later advices state
i- that this company had lost 1,000
it lambs by the late storms. Col. Hud
a- nutt himself had lost 75 lambs, and
n Miller and Perkins, who had charge
n of DeWitt's band, lost 600 lambs and
a 200 old sheep. Cameron, Jacobs and
a- Tressler, and other parties in the vi
17 cinity suffered also. The loss fell
a. most heavily upon the young lambs,
e- which were chilled by the rain and
Lg died from cold. Some old sheep, how
r- ever, were lost, as the storm was most
exceptional in its severity.-Herald.

Y, out, taking a drink when he felt like
n it and paying for it when it suited his
convenience. Yesterday Hailey en
.e tered the saloon in company with a
couple of friends and called for the
to drinks, for the payment of which he
10 laid down a half-dollar piece. After
=a a glance at the coin the barkeeper
k threw it back, declaring it was coun
