Investigtaion of the cells on the
lower tier of the Jail then showed that
several bars had been cut and then
bent down sufficiently to permit the
passage of a human body. Waybright
was Drought back and placed in another
cell, while all prisoners in the cell were
transferred to the second floor. The
saws, three in all. were recovered by
acting jailor Gonzales, while all pris
oners in the jail were subjected to a
strict search in an effort to discover!

effect an escape.

into contact with the steel stairs of the

led to a popular misconception of her as
a "self-made woman." As a matter of
tact she was born rich. In 1S65 she in
herited some $10.6e.08 which accu
mulated upon itself until in SO years
it had multiplied nearly 10 times. She
also inherited family traditions which
had been a pride for three centuries,
and which she was anxious to perpetu
ate in her children.
She was born at New Bedford. Mass.
"in November. 1S34. about the 20th." ac
cording to her testimony at -one time in
court. She was a descendant on her
mother's side of Henry Howland. broth
er of pilgrim John Howland of the Ma -flower
She as sent to a Quaker school
on Cape Cod. and to a seminary In Bos
ton, and got her first lessons in finance
when her aging father entrusted her
with some of hip books.
Wan Once Belle In Society.
She was just 34 years old when ber
father died suddenly, leaving her his
$$... tl.MO.OOO outright and the
income from the other 3S.0M.e60. the
principal to be held in trust for her
children. It Is forgotten that Hetty
Green, then Robinson, was a belle in
New York society According to ber
own stories she "often danced the whole
night through. Even then, however,
she liied in a boarding house and was
so saving that rather than pay cab
bare, she would pull a pair of heavy
woolen stockings over her shoes am?
alk through the snow to parties.
Almost at the same time that her
father died. Ler aunt, Sylvia Ann How
land. passed away, leaving several mil
lion dollars. It is said Hetty Robineon
had been brought up from childhood
to count this money as hers, and that
the aunt expressed the hope that Hetty
would some day become, as she did,
he richest woman In the country.
Controversy Over Will,
The division of the aunt's estate,
however, was not as expected. Three
years after the aunt's death Hetty
Green appeared in the I'nited States
circuit court in Massachusetts with a
IU which she wanted substituted for
the one already rrobated. This will
was in Mrs. Green's own handwriting.
and some of the most famous experts
c; the day declared under oath their
belief that the two signatures it con
tained were not made by the aunt, but
were trace by Hetty Green herself
ever the or:ginal signature of Sylvia
Ann Howland.
The litigation is one of the most
famous in jourt annals. After an ex
pense of J172.OO0, he case was dis
missed on a technicality. An appeal
was made to the supreme court of the
I'nited States, but while this was
rending a private settlement was
Ylwnys Involved In Suit.
From thoe days to the time of her
'leath Hetty Green was involved In
'ine law suit or other, asserting that
lawyers were forever trying to rob
her of her property. Her antipathy
toward them was so violent that he
said, "I would rather have my daugh
ter burned at the stake than to go
through what I have with lawyers."
Married a Consul General.
She married in 1867. Her husband
was Edward H. Green, who was United
States consul general In Manila, where
re had made a fortune in the silk
trade It is said Green, at a public
enner, heard someone speak of Hetty
Robinson as "the greatest American
heiresx." and straightaway announced
bis determination to marry her. Be
fore the wedding day an agreement
was signed to the effect that the wife's
fortune should never be drawn on to
meet the husband's debts or any of
their joint expenses. He died in 18j2
after having lost most of his money In
Wall street.
ITaccIed Over Special Train.
Both Hetty Green and he did busi
ness there for many years, but on sepa
rate accounts. Old Wall street men
have told innume-able stories about

(three miles) the two lines of trenches
of the second German position, from
the Maricourt wood which is in our
