he carried what presently 1 found to be
one of the mo! important hadgrtaof docu
ments tlint have ever been put into the
hand of woman by the Russian, govern
ment. The lady was Miss Kate Mars
deii. who hope to start soon for a six
mouths' tour through the wide domin
ions of the "irreitt W hite Ciar," there to
study the subject of leprosy, which has of
late aroused so much attention and in
terest. "What is it," I asked Miss Marsden after
the bad told Die of her intention "what is
it that inddcea you to turn your attention
speeiiilly to leprosyf"
''It enme nlajut in rather a its Huge way,
and long before leprosy had beun to at
tract much notice, even in the medical
world. I was nurse in the Kusso-Tttrkish
war in 1S77-7S, and one day ut Sistova I saw
two lepers for the Hrst time in my life. The
aitflit of the dixesse was so loathsome, so
altoKether appaliinK, anil the suffering of
the poor men was so beyond anything that
I bad ever seen, that there and then I vow
ed to devote my whole life and strength to
lepers if ever the opportunity was given
"And from that day forth I have waited
for the opportunity to fulfill the vow I
made at the siht of the two ilulgarian
lepers. The time was not yet for many
years. Several of my sisters were living.
They were very much opposed to my plan,
hot they have all died of consumption, one
aftr the other, and now there is no longer
any obstacle in my way, except one, which
may at the last moment coiiih1 me to give
up my plan."
"And whnt did you do while wailing all
"I first became ilcpuiy superintendent
of the Wooltnn t'oiivalesceiit borne, I jver
pool, Eng., where J remained for about
four and a half years. After a rest I went
out to New Zealand, where my last sister
was dying of consumption. A week after
I arrived she died, and I accepted the place
as lady superintendent at the Wellington
hospital. Then I heard of the miners in
the South Uland, many of whom live sev
eral days' Journey away from any place
wuere tney can get medical assistance In
rases of accident. You ran imagine what
a man's sufferings must be if he breaks or
injures a limb and has to remain unat
tended to for days anil days till a doctor ts
brought to him, or till he is taken a long
Journey to where the nearest medical man
lives. In order to enable them to help
themselves and each other till medical as
sistance can be obtained, I went among the
mines an over the Island and gave ambu
lance lectures. It wnsastranireexnerienrfL
Sometimes I had to travel fouror five daya
to get to them; then I gave my lecture, sat
with them by their camp fire, slept in a
tent which they had specially put up for
me, and rode off again next day to another
"On theso tours I saw a good deal of leo-
rosyninong the Maoris. and a few months
golcaint) home to England, thinking to
fo to Molokai and there make further
Undies of the disease.
"I should tell you that my final object
has alwiivs been, and still is, to study lei
rosy and its various treatments as thor
oughly as possible, and then to go to India
io organize the care of lepers who in many
cases are terribly neglected. Soon after
reaching Londou 1 went to the Hawaiian
consul. Bond street, to see what BHsistance
he could give me, but he informed me at
once that only Roman Catholics could be
received at Molokai. That, of course, put
an end to it, as I long to the Church of
r.ngiaml. ami once more my hopes seemed
to be bullied.
"At the first March drawing room this

three days after the Princess of Wale

intentions, telegraphed, asking me to come

I was anxious to obtain the Red Cross

the order without trouble and was specially

I expressed the wish to study the leper

opening out one after the other the large
white sheets stamped with mighty
official seals and signed by some of the

SURVEYORS AT WORK
A Carp ar Marveyer ladrr :0.
H'aerler Eater rsranllv 1'paa Their
A corps of surveyors under the direc
tion or Col. Wheeler entered formally
upon the task of making the Hennepin
canal survey yetterday morning tt the
mouth of Rock river. As the Davenport
Democrat truly says:
The proposed route has long been fixed
in the engineer's mind; his work at pres-.
ent is simply to tlx exactly tho positions
of the locks and dams and to make the
estimates for tbem. He has from a dozen
to twenty assistants with him, a! number
of them competent surveyors who have
come from abroad, and bis task was well
under way at sunset yesterday. That it
was begun is sulBciect assurance that the
attempts that have been lately made to
subvert and render void the intention of
congrefs in passing the Hennepin clause
of the river and harbor bill, have proved
fruitless. The western terminus of the
canal is fixed, and is fixed at the mouth of
Rock river. The Holine scheme is laid
out as cold and as stiff as ' the deadest
corpse, the superlative being the only
degree that is expressive enough. And
it is right that it should be.
