She was twice married, the second
time to Hiram Stewart, who was a
stanch advocate of all the principles
his wife advocated and who rendered
her much assistance in her work. She
had no children of her own, but took
to her motherly heart the two sons of
her second husband. In 1ST8 her strong
love of temperance reform led her to
join the Good Templars, of which, so
ciety she was always an honored mem
ber. Then, coming down the years to
the time of the civil war, her sous en
listed and served their country as able
men. At this time supplies ran short,
th.e government being unable to answer
all the- calls made on it, and Mother
Stewart with many other noble wom
en worked night and day unceasingly.

When the call for the Cincinnati

was the tirst woman to respond. She
had a framed certificate officially
signed, testifying to her valuable serv

and supplying them with bandages

Grover Cleveland Tells Armour Institute
Students That He I'avi It
Above All Others.
Chicago, Oct. 1(5. Ex-President
Grover Cleveland was received with
lusty cheers by the studentN of Armour
Institute. He made a speech which
brought forth more applause. One
statement he made was this: "I am a
great stickler for higher education, but
I want to tell you this: The opportuni
ties today are greater than ever for
boys to got a practical education an
industrial education and I would
rather my boy grew up able to build
a Treat bridge like the Brooklyn bridge
than to receive the highest honor that
the people could bestow upon him."
Before visiting the Armour school
Cleveland, accompanied by James H.
Eckels, called upon Mrs. Walter Q.
Grosham, widow of Secretary of State
Grrsham, of the Cleveland cabinet.
In the. afternoon the distinguished
visitor was guest of honor at the pul-
lic reception hold in the Art. Institute.

When Morgan madehis raid through
Ohio, her brother's farm was the scene
of a battle and the dead and dying

while this brave woman tended them.
In Athens, O., she stood on picket

Mother Stewart introduced the W.
C. T. U. in Virginia and the blue rib-
lon pledge work among. the colored
lieople of the southern states. Later,
in 1SN0, with money gathered from the
sale of her valuable souvenirs, she took
the white ribbon south.
Many were the unsolicited honors
that came to Mrs. Stewart. She was
in close touch with every war of the
century. In the revolution her grand
father entered as a "ranker" and left
a colonel. She was adopted as a sis
ter by the Palestine commandery,
Knight Templars, of Springfield, the
tirst woman to whom such lienors were
ever accorded. She made her tirst pub
lie address to a Band of Hope in Pom
eroy ligty-one years ago. and there
are some few even now who remember
that little speech and the earnestness
with which it was delivered.
Frm this small beginning her work
quiekly grew and she was soon in de
mand as a temperance lecturer and
organizer tnroughout the country. Her
beneficent and well-considered efforts
covered a wide range of activity, in
cluding the writing of Itooks, two of
which are "Memories of the Crusade"
and "The Crusader in Great Pritain."

London Advertiser's Story
London, Oct. 1(5. The Associated
Press has the highest authority for
saying that the announcement made
by the London Morning Advertiser to
day, that the decision of the Alaskan
boundary commission virtually con
cedes the American case, is entirely
untrue. The commission, thus far has
reached no decision, and no vote has
been taken, even b private sessions,
which would indicate that Chief .Jus
lice Al verstone's .position is quite
true. The generaj trend of opinion
among those connected with the tri

is that the ultiinaje decision vill be
in favor of Ameritfa.
The Alaskan commission adjourned
