Most of the patents issued to to women have b en in soma way connectel with their dress or house hold labor-saving devices. Few of the women who have invented were from New England States, and the most of the few were from Massachusetts. A MODEK.N SAMSO.X. Shattering Cobblestones AVith His Fists MitKcles Like Tumors. Professor Sebastian Miller gave an exhibition of human strength and deve lopment at the Clinic hall of the Penn sylvania hospital in Philadelphia. The ball was packed not only with male, but also with female students. The exhibition was prefaced by bring ing in a small, square, yellow-painted pine table, on which were placed an immense iron ball, a huge ring, and an assorted collection of the host Philadel phia cobblestones. There was a buzz of excitement and a craning of necks br the y ast ondience when the door opene J, and the leading Philadelphia medical pro-tittonors, professors in the various colleges, and a number of well-known newspaper men entered and completely tilled the arena and tho doorway, fin ally Dr. Morton appeared, accompanied by the man whose great titrength was to be tested, who was bared to the waist, with a blanket thrown over his should- In introducing him to the assembled audience Dr. Morton said that he had been brought to his notice by presenting himself to be treated for a slight con tusion of the finger, His name is Sebastian Miller; he is 20 years old, a native of Munich, and has given exhibi tions of strength in various parts of Eu rope. Tho exhibition of strength consisted in shattering with his fist several pieces of cobblestone. The stone was first placed iu the ring, and then put on the irou ball. In preparing for the blows which wero to break the stone, he first braced one foot firmly agaiust the rung which ran across tho legs of the table near tho floor. Ho then gave three powerful circular swings with his right arm, bringing the blow from the shoul der. The liist cracked the stone, the second broke it, and tho third shattered it into bits. These feats wero greeted with deafening rounds of applause. At the conclusion ol tucsa loats ol strength, Miller, who is n man of overage height, with a pleasant face, chestnut brown hair and moustache mid blue eyes, stood up in tho centre of the arena, while Vr. Morton drew the at tention of the audience to his great muscular development, which, ho said. n minded him of Hercules of old, iu the mnsoles of tho arm and the great breadth of chest.

Charles Liapenard Finds the Mother '-j,-, Soldiers Liked Him Rem from IVhuw He a Stolen in j inisceiiaea of a ChapJairt- 1803. There is one happy mother in Brook lyn. She is Mrs. Martha Lispenanl, and she rejoices in the fact that a son whom sho had mourned as dead for more than twenty-five years has turned up alive and w'eil and ia now on a visit to ber. This son is Charles Lispenard. He reached Brooklyn last Friday night, and his striking resemblance to his brother, George Lispenard, bore out his state ment that he was really the person whom many Brooklynites had believed found a watery grave a quarter of a cen tnry ago. Until three months ago Charles Lis penard had always known his name to be Charles Alien" and nnder that name be married an estimable Indiana lady. He knew nothing of his parents, but hod faint recollection that relatives lived somewhere in the vicinity of New Y'ork. He could recall incidents of bis child hood that he was positive h id not taken place in the V7est. In Logansport, Inu., where be had settled and where a happy wife snd children are now anxiously awaiting bis return, there were many people remembered him when he came there as a lad. But they knew nothing of his previous history. So when James T. Wooten, a Benton county farmer, visited Logansport lost September and astonished "Charles Allen" with the ex clamation that Charles Allen's real name was Charles Lispenard. the latter 1)0- Jieved that be wss being mode the vic tim of a practical joke. But l'aru er Wooten was not joking and soon con vinced bis young friend that ho said was true. Little by little Mr. Lispenard learned something of Lis previous history. While a very younjr boy be was put to work on the farm of a man named Allen, in Benton county. This man treated him so badly that he ran away. But Allen followed and caught him and then brought tho unfortunate Iiack to the farm, where he treated him more shame lessly than before, and finally hanged him in a barn nntil nearly dead. Neigh bors rescued him and the farmer and his two sons were arrested. Thev were con- i victed aud sentenced to a long term of imprisonment. It was some time after this that the boy wandered to Logansport, where ho obtained a good position, and where eventually he settled down. In this p!",c he studied for the ministry as Mr. Allen, aud people knew hitn by no other numo. As soon ns ho was convinced that his name wus Lispcmard, be consulted a lawyer in bis own town, aud not many days after this the lawyer oieued a oor resjionduiice with Mr. George l'yall, a lawyer who has an oftioe in Broadway, this city. Mr. Itya'.l consulted the school records of Brooklyn, and found that the namos of Georgo Lispenard and Iuh brother, Charles Lispenard, were duly enteioJ there. Ho continued bis investigation further, and learn-d that w hile Georgo Lispenard still lived in Brooklyn his brot'ier Charles had mvs tcrioub'y d s.ippeartd years ago. lie connected these two links, aud after many weeks ho learned, to h'S own satis faction and to that of Mr. Geoigo Lis penard that the Charles Allen, of l.oan- sport, Iiid., was none other thaa Charles i Lispenard, of Brooklyn, who ono even ing in tho tall ot l$u.l, while ho was on bis way homo through 1'irst street, thon Williamsburg, with an armful of chips that he had collected in a shipyard, was asked bv a man who was liemg driven slowly along in a cab to stop in, Charles did so, and from that day tin til lost Friday nijht he never set foot in Brooklyn again. He was driven across the ferry to this city and thence, with several other boys, was transported to Uia W"8i, wiore be was hired out to Farmer Allen. Tho poor mother waited patiently for ber son's return on that eventful night, and speut every dollar she possessed in an unsuccessful senroh for him. In tho end she believed that her missing boy bad fallen overboard and was dt owned nud that his body was carried out to tea. When I called at Mrs. Lispenard's residence, I was told that she w ith her long lost boy and other sou, Georgo, had left early in tho ovening to visit friends in another section of Brooklyn. A lady living in tho house who answered my queries, smiled pleasantly ss sho related how the molher clasped her long lost boy to her bosom when ho reached his native, city a fow nights since. She said that from what she had heard Mr. Lis penard would remain iu Brooklyn many days. y, '. litritU. ew Method of Makiu?

BECOrXiSCTIOSS OF SHEBIDAX. Within the last two or three years death has been uncommonly busy in cut ting down the leading men who toon i part iu the Civil War. Among those I who have fallen within tho year has been Gent. Sheridan, who bad attained the highest military rank iu the Army of the United States. I propose to give some personal recollections of him w bile 1 oommandin the Army of the Shenan doah. . , In JuIy,18C4, General Grant suggested to President Lincoln to place under one commander all the foroea operating in the rioinity of Harper's Ferry and in the Sheuandoah VaJ ey. To the prop osition to form cue military depart ment, the President's consent wus readily given and Grant was asked to nominate the commander. He proposed General William Buel Franklin. But the mili tary officials of Washington had sought to force upon this gallant officer the re sponsibility of Burnsiile's great failure at Fredericksburg. They bad no sym pathy in Grant's generous proposal to reinstate him in high position, so a sec ond Domination was asked. Grant named General George G. Meade, but the President objected to taking him from the command of tho Army of tho Potomac. Grant then made a third nomination, that of Philip H. Sheridan, his chief of cavalry. He only proiiosed to spare him for a brief time and sug gested that the command should be given him as a temporary measure. Sheridan was sent to Washington, and Grant himself followed the next day, going as far as Monocacy Bridge to meet General Hunter. When Hunter asked to be relieved, Grant sent to Hal lock instructions, August Cth: "Send Sheridan by morning train to Harper's Ferry. Give him orders to take geuoral command of all the troops in the field within the division." Sheridan met Grant at Monocacy Bridge that after noon, and the next morning crossed the Potomao Itiver and assumed bis com mand. Grant returned to Washington and thence to City Point Sheridan's command consisted of tho Sixth, Eighth, and Nineteenth Army I Corps, with Cava.ry force, making a ! total of Sixty-eight thousand troops. ilie new Department Commander had recently been transferred fi-ora the West, and was personally unknown to the memburs of the Sixth Corps, to which belonged the New Jersey Brigade. We bad only beard of him us an ollicer of Borne dash and in high estimation with General Grant The Sixth Corps was soon moving again np the famous Valley. One day a mounted troop forced its way through our infantry column very much ts the displeasure of Colonel Campbell of tho 10th N. J. liegiment The Colonel put spurs to his horse an 1 dashed towards the intruder who wss leading, to remon strate, snd just in time saw the two star upon the shoulders of the "littlo chap," and recognized the bead-quarters' ling of General Sheridan. It was the first time we had ever seen him, and tho word passed from man to man, "that is Gen eral Sheridan. From that day wo became more famil iar with the personal appearance of tho new commander. I will not say ho was prepossessing. He was below medium size, with a red face, anil rode a largo horse of dark color. But the rider aud horse grew in our estimation, as day after day they passed us on the march, or visited the camps. Sheridan was much more affable towards the officers and men of his command than most generals, and be lost nothing by a pleas ant word and a nod of the head. We soon got to calling him "Phil. Sherry," for the soldiers hud a name of their own coining for every general they served under. The choice bv Sheridan of .General Torbort our old brigade commauder. as his chief of cavalry, was also pleasing to were in position for defense when Sliefl the First N. J. Brigade, and we almost I dan passed along the lines. In t i l. Al -..!...- l: a . 1 . .. . ti Ih took tho selection as a compliment to oursenes. General Grant paid a second visit to the Army of the Shenandoah on tho l.'th of September. Sheridan gave his plans 1 in liin anllin.i.cli'. ..... w I . .I.a T 4 I .

General, who added nothing except his hearty approval, and afterwards said, "The result was such that I have never Rinoe deemed it necessary to visit Geneal Sheridan before giviug him or ders." The Battlk op Opeqcav, as officially called, but more commonly known as that of Winch usTEii, was fought on Monday, Sept llHu, 18v4. There was some severe fighting all the moruing with varying succe.-s. At one time the Nineteeuth Corps was driven back in disorder, and Sheridan dashed in among them himself to bring them back into line. When his forces had all come up, Sheridan rode along the front, speakiug familiarly to the men, and telling them what he expected them to do. He roused the troops to the greatest enthus iasm, and made them certain of victory. At five o'clock in tho afternoon he ordered the general charge by the whole army to be made. As the writer turned from the wounded men, for whom he had been caring, and rode np to the summit of a high hill, the whole magnif icent spectacle of the charging army broke on his sight The three corps were in double Hue of battle, and with the cavolry on either flank, they stretched four miles in breadth from wing to wing. The spectacle which roused the Union troops tn confidence struck terror to the heart of tho enemy. The cavalry rode fss'er than ourinfantry could advance, and assumed a cresent form on the wings doubling round the flanks of Early's army. As soon as the enemy's works on the right were cap tured, their troops fled, and our pro grew beoame a rapid pursuit. As bay declined, the rebel forces broke through Winchester in full retreat, and shortly after the Union troops were in entire possession of the town. Sheridan sent off a dispatch saying, "We have just sent the enemy whirling through Winchester, and are after them to-morrow." The last scene of the afternoon was Sheridan's riding around the linos of the army accompanied by Generals Wright, Crook and Emory. The en thusiasm of our men seemed to carry them away as they broke oat into cheer a'ter cheer and heard the words of praise which their commander addressed to them. No other commander bad treat ed ns so after a fight He was like one of ourselves, and wa f-H i,, sonal friend. There was a maJLf about Sheridan that captivated the and hearts of all who saw and h22 him.
