The charges u-uiist, Dr. Kelly for causing
the death of the .Soudier girl are now
familiar to the people of the state. The
doctor is under si 0,000 bonds on this

part of ceitain classes, particularly the

and threats of violence has been made.
There is, however, no sympathy with

A French Wuuuii'a Scheme.
Mme. l'eyanaud was bom in Paris,
and up to the time of her marriage en
joyed the respect of all who knew her.
.Soon after her wedding her husband, a
bnrber, died, leaving her in jkjs-
sc.-ision of tno secret or tjoautil ving
the complexion. Sho continued tho bus
iness, but it was not sufficiently remu
nerative, whereupon 6he conceived the
idea of com j iel ling her customers to pay
Sho advertised extensively, promising
the most remarkable improvement by
the use of her wash, but enjoining abso
lute secrecy upon tho ladies whom she
proposed to benefit. Soon her business
increased, and then she put her scheme
into operation. Selecting the wealthiest
of patrons sho gavo them a mixture
which when applied to the face
brought out blotches instead of
roses. When they applied for relief,
sho would demand an exorbitant sum
to elTect a euro which her vic
tims only too gladly paid. Sho contin
ued this business successfully for some
time, until a Miss Nichols, who was vic
timised, had her arrested for swindling.
She was tried in Paris in 1675 and sen
tenced to prison. After serving several
years she managed to escape and sailed
for New York, where sho lived very
(juietly. One day she attended church,
and, overcome with remorse, sought the
ollieiating priest and confessed her sins,
staling at the same time her readiness to
do penance. The priest advised her to
forsake her evil ways and spend her
days in prayer.
She at once came to tins city and
sought tho hut on the Catonsville road,
in which she passed tho remainder of her
life. She prayed constantly and often
scourged herself. Her only companions
were the dumb animals sho collected.
Up to within a few -lays before her death
she enjoyed good health. All her prop
erty will probably go to the Catholic
church. Baltimore Cor. St. Louis Globe

committing a crime, and as yet uncon
vinced of sin, these three railways. Ictus

make a single rate to Chicago for all
business received by each of the three
lines; these receipts to be ooled and
divided. Even iiad they proceeded upon
a basis of the single actual receipta to
each for solicited business, there could
be no difference to the public either
way; but they .chose to consider the
most complicated problem of a single
tarliT divided upon the ;iempi expendi
ture, outlay and cost. What resulted?
Simply that there was (as the interstate
commerce law says there shall be) no dis
crimination. Hut when tii Interstate
law, rt iiiio keeping tho w ord of promise
to tho ear by saying there should Le no
discrimination, broke it to tho hope by
saying there should tie no pool, what re
sulted? Why, in the case of these three

A Ghostly Guard.
A rumor is current in Athens. Ga., to
tho etrect that there is a rjck in Clarke
county. alout six miles frot.i town, upon
which no man dares to tread. The super
stitious say that about twenty or twenty
live years ago an old gentleman buried a
coffee ot full of gold at the foot of this
rock and has since died, and when a man
passes that way his ghost r.pjears and
drives him off. Parties passing near the
place have leen run more than a piile
by this invisible ghost. They 6ay that
when they come near the place, even
though it le a jcrfectly still day, a noise
can Le heard like a terrible cyclone, and
the tall pines which 6urrour.d the
rock begin to bow and many of the:nfaii
to tlie ground. uiTO ftumay t u o j,ent So
men from Athens, v ho beatd the rumors
and doubted them, visited the rock with
the intention of proving the reports to be
false, but they did not stop long. Thev
climbed to the top of tho rock, when
they became jtstoni.shed by hearing a
terrible crash. Hardly before they knew
it a large pine tumbled to tho ground
riht at their feet. While an examina
tion of the treo was being made, which
was twisted from tho ground, another

heavy seas reports, on reaching harbor,
that oil was used in calming the waves
with .real success, and bad it not been

A giant pine tree was cot down in
Garrett county, Jb! . lately, and near
the heart a bullet was found. At this
point the tree was thirty -two inches in

Tho Oil Cartridges.
The power which petroleum exerts in
calming tho surface of a troubled, even
tempestuous ocean, is conceded by tho
most conservative navigators. However
efiicient ietroleum may be in rousing a
storm on land and generating a cyclone
in every oil exchango of tho United
States, on the briny deep it3 influence is
wholly in the direction of ix?aco and

tofoiO a simple throwing or dripping of
oil from tho shin has been the method
pursued. Now a Yankeo inventor has
patented an oil carUidgi, which, fired
from a gun, piojecls tho oil far in ad
vanco of tho vessel and thereby stills the

these cartridges, it j claimed that a
