Travesties on Her Father.
"One evening, a few months after
their return to Concord to live, my
Bister and I accompanied our mother
on a call on the Alcotts." writes Ed
ward W. Emerson of "When Louisa
Alcott Was a Girl'" in the Ladies
Home Journal. "Before we left Lou
isa was persuaded by her mother to do
something for our amusement. She
disappeared and soon came in trans
formed. Her hair, which girls in those
days wore brushed low and braided,
was twisted up into a little knob on
her head so tight that she could hard
ly wink. "The broad collar, white
undersleeves and hoopsklrt of the day
were gone, and she appeared In an
ugly, scant, brown calico dress, with
bloomer trousers to match, blue stock
ings and coarse shoes. She had a
manuscript in one hand and a pen in
the other, which she thrust behind her
ear and began a harangue on the
'Rights of Woman,' and offered and at
once proceeded to read in strident
tones a gem of thought which she had
Just turned out, called "Hoots of a
Distracted Soul in the Wilderness.
She then passed on to other confirm
atory manuscripts that she professed
to be editing travesties on her fath
er's writings, I think certainly on
those of my father, under the name of
Rolf Walden Emerboy. Mr. Alcott
came in from his study to hear, and,
however little he could understand
such manifestations of the spirit of
prophecy, he seemed to feel the pride
of a parent In his daughter's wit."

Cuba, L. Ruiz & Co., bankers, repre

They expect to have soon a control

and, owning, as thy do. the united
railway linet, will be in a prsiticn to
dictate terms to the Jucaro ccmpiiDy,
which is the wealthiestnd most pros

stock eennot be purchased, the line
