Louis the oth er day a lone woman armed with a dauble barreled shotgun ot antlqito pat tern stood guard over a long pllo of 'household furniture, stacked high on the Washington avenue sidewalk, west of Thirteenth street. This strange climax to an eviction, happening In the very heart of a great city, was an event of extraordinary Interest to passers-by, who saw therein a striking example ot what a southern woman can do In tho face of misfortune. Mrs. Lydla Waht Is tho widow of John W. Wtthl of Grenada. Miss., who served with distinction as a captain In Itha Ninth and Sixteenth Mississippi In fantry of the confederate army during tho civil war. Tho woman la a native p Missouri, but oamo to St. Louis from Mississippi eight months ago. fine 'rented a rooming house at 1300 Wash ington avenue, and thereby hangs tho utory, which Is now the talk of the St. Louis wholesale district along that thoroughfare. Incidentally, It may bo stated, that Capt. Wahl Introduced tho artesian water supply system In Missis sippi. He was an engineer. Not n single gray hair Is vlslblo In Mrs. Wahl's head. Sho carries her 54 sum mers of alternating gladness nnd sor row llko a woman of half her years. Despite her long vigil of Monday night, kept from n rocking chnlr placed In tho doorway. Mrs. Wahl was chipper nnd wldo nwsko In the morning. She woro a plain black dress and strode back and forth before tho homo until her plans for oseapo from adversity had finally matured. The locality Is far from the choicest sKt In St. Louis after dark, yet Mrs. Wahl faltered not. Her early training on a Missouri farm had lncludod marksmanship anil she was not ntrald to stand guard to save her own. Truo. she did hlro two young men of tho neighborhood to net as watchmen, but they fell to "canning" beer, and were promptly relieved by the widow. Mrs. Wnh I 'a troubles wore due Jo her falluro to settle n claim for ront hdvanced by agents of the Ohio ho.Vs. Tho real estate agents not being nblu to collect two months' rontnl, alleged to bo due, brought suit on April 20 In Justice Ilohert WnlWer'n onnrl nt 1000 Olive street for $100. Klght days later judgment was rendered for the nmotint 'named, with (8.00 costs. In conse quence she was evicted by constables. And such nn eviction. Old-fashioned nahogany pieces and new-fangled dres sers we m carried from tho building and placed along tho edgo of tho pavement, aldo by aide.

Feather mattresses, a largo mantlo doc't. dainty crockery and china, fancy lambrequins, brle-a-brat I of all sorts, and old furniture of a pat tern seldom seen north of Mason nnd I Dixon's line, wero numbered In the wares. A loss stout-henrted woman than1 Mrs? Wahl would have shed leara at the wanton display of her posses sions In a public highway. Dut she shouldered her shotgun and stood guard.

Andrt lUportnl l)ath Ilia Joka of Ituialan rhralrlan. If the statement made recently by a HL Petersburg Journal Is true, the re port that Andre nnd his two compan ions had been found In a cabin near Krnsnolarsk Is tho result of n hugo Joke. It Is more than probable, since tho Investigations set on foot by the Kusslan government havo revealed nothing, that tho Ill-fated explorer nover reached tho shoro of northorn Asia: It is even possible thnt he Is yet nllvo. Tho story given out Is thnt a certain Siberian mlno-owner, who lived In tho wilds of the steppe, wished to dtcoy out for a brief visit a dear friend of his, n physlrlan of Krnsnolarsk. Ho therefore wrote to him that Andre and his two companions had como down on his mlno, and that although they wished to keop their presence secret for n few weeks, tho learned doctor nilnht enioy their conversation until sttcli time aa they should chooso to rovoal their presence, nnd then share the honor of their discoveries. The physician, however, amolt tho mouse nnd replied by tho noxt mall that Andre nnd his two companions could not hnvo eomo to tho mine-owner's house, slneo their bodies had been found In nn old cabin near Krnsno larsk. Then followed the description of their supposed death, tho dctnlls ot which, In iilmont Idontlcnl words ot tho physician, tho ituselnn govern ment caused to bo cabled over the world. For some renson tho mall de tectives, who open evory totter either wny, failed to catch tho first Andre statement, but did open tho report thnt ho had been found by the Toun gotis. finch, at least, Is tho version curront In tho capital of tho nll-om tilpotont czar. It Is posstblo, however, thnt both stories, that of Andro'a death, nnd then this explanation of It, originated In tho brain ot romo for: lie spnco-wrlter. Unless, Indeed, tho Hus slan newspapers aro different from those of the rest of tho world. l?ery Tan Tasrt, "Just nfter Joe Jefferson had recov ered from n serious Illness, thirty years nRo," anya Murat Halstead, "he mado n statement which struck mo na curious. He said 'that a man must bo sick once In ten years, and when ho got through ho wns Rood (other things equnl) for another decennial period.'

Ho went up stairs to his room, whore ho remained until fourteen years after, when tho father died. The homo waa afterward painted with tho most grotesque nnd eurlons designs. While John, the peculiar, and n brother were disputing about these desgns, tho brother aald: "John, I wish you would go up stairs nnd stny there."
