compelled to cart water from Jersey

about 000 hoists at work to cart all

Her Coiidition Yestertlay ?Joning Ad
ditional Particulars of the Accident.
From Hon. W. V. Carder, of Grant
precinct, we glean additional particu
lars of the accident that happened to
Miss Grant, last Wednesday evening.
He says the young lady was staudii.g
at the door of the house, threading a
needle, when the Hash of lightning
struck her. She fell to the tloor in a
swoon. Her mother, who was seated
on a chair a few feet away, and who
has been an invalid for years, picked
iii her baby from the bed and in ti.e
midst of one of the worst rain storms
ever known in that section of the
country, ran to a neighbor's house, a
quarter of a mile away, and notified
then, that her daughter had been
struck by lightning. A lew of the
neighbors and the frantic mother re
paired to the house and found the girl
lying on the lloor iu an unconscious
condition. Restoratives were admin
istered and in a short time she was re
stored to consciousness, though unabie
to speak. During Wednesday night
she seemed to suiter tvrribly, and at
times was observed to throw her hand
suddenly to her hip, as though to show
her mother that the pain was there.
At last her mother made a close exam
ination of the hip, and discovered a
piece of thread hanging from the skin.
Pulling the thread she drew from the
flesh the needle the poor girl had in
her lingers at the lime the lightning
strufh her. Mr. Carter says it was im
bedded iu the llesli at least an inch be
low the turiarv of the skin, and when
extracted was bent and twisted and
looked as though it had been taken

View of 31 r. Hendricks on 31 en and
(lath in Cincinnati Inquirer.
"Mr. Hendricks, I remember seeing
you at dinner at Mr. Biaine's once, sit
ting on his left hand, while Charles
Sumner was on his right?"
"1 knew Minuier intimately well. I
think he was a sincere enthusiast. I
never saw any indications of mental
or moral dynasty iu him. He had
nothing of the ready power of Fessen
den, who was the uiost able man I
have ever seen iu the United Males
Senate, but his reading and learning
were very extensive. After Grant
come inta power Sumner would not
fall into mere lollowership.. He felt
the stnse of fitness, anil, although he
was badly treated by his party, 1 re
gard his closing years as mellowing
with humanity and magnanimity his
younger and more radical days."
"Do you think Mr. Blaine is as
strong before the people as he was
three or four years ago?"
"No. We can beat Blaine whenever
he runs for President. He would have
to be on the defensive from the time
he took the Held."
"What do you think of lioscoe Con
kling?" "That is the man, if I were a Re
publican, I wouid want to see Presi
dent of the United States. While he
is rather of aristocratic behavior, he is
a man who tolerates no jobbery nor
low intrigue. His pride of character
has most of the elements of self re
spect in it. As to his abilities, they
are prodigious. I think he is the most
powerful speaker I ever knew - I sat
in the senate with him a full term,
an 1 I never had the least reason to
suspect him of being concerned in any
thing de ions or intei esti d in ir. On
one occasion he got ready to pitch into
railroads, and endeavored i,to arrest
some action of the Kxecutive carrying
out the rights of a railroad that ran
from nortnwestci n Missouri to the
Union Pacil.c road. I fiequently took
a favorable view to lailroads, and iu
examining this cae concluded that
the company had performed its work,
and was entitled to its franchise. Mr.
Conklmg came to me and invited me
to join with him in an on-slatight. I
said: 'In this case I do not think it
just. 4 Why V he said, 'I had expected
a different course from you.' 'Then
you are mistaken. Mr. Cor.kling,' said

How to Make a Poultics.
Dr. Bruton, in Uraou the new Lon
don periodical, gives the following use
ful hints ou this subject: The common
practice of making poultices by mixing
linseed meal with hot water and apply
ing it directly to the skin is quite
wrong, because if we do not wish to
burn the patient we must wait until a
gi eat'portion of the heat has been lost.
The proper method is to take a flannel
bag. the size of the poultice required,
to lill this with the linseed poultice, as
hot as can possibly be made, and to
put between this and the skin a second
llannel, so there shall be at least two
thicknesses of llannel between the .skin
and the poultice itself. Above the
poultice should be placed more llannel,
or a piece of cotton wool, to prevent it
from getting cold. B this method we
are able to apply the linseed meal boil
ing hot, without burniug the patient,
and the heat, gradually diffusing
through the flannel, affords a grateful
sense of relief, which cannot be ob
tained by other means. There are few
ways in whieh Mica marked relief is
given to abdominal pain, as by the ap
plication of a poultice iu this manner.

To say that the Domestic Month
ly for September is filled with fresh
and valuable information on fashions,
is to leave unmentioned the fact that
these are Hew iashioti, appropriate for
such occasions as aie certain to occur
in the lirst mouth of Autumn. How to
dress for September festivities, be they
dinners, dancing parties, yachting or
coaching occasions, is fully set forth
in the September Monthly. How those
dress w ho follow esthetic moJes is al
so delineated, even to describing artist
ic styles for little girls, and the new
Milt n suit for boys. The coming bon
net is confidently talked of in the Sep
tember Monthly, and what styles of
wraps, travelingsuits, laces, orna.. ents
gloves and shoes ladies will wear from
now until winter, are disclosed in ad
vance of Autumn openings.
Those interested w ill lind th'ree ser
viceable articles in he new number:

in defiance of law and private rights.
"All on account of Hortensia" is a

Came, down to "Idaho Springs" and
stajed over night. There are two bath
houses here, known as the old and the
new. Tha "old man" runs a wagon up
to hi spring in a romantic gulch, with
many odd surroundings.' The water is
pumped up, both hot and cold, and run
in small baths. There is one large
swimming bath. The hot water is not
nearly as hot sis that over at the Sul
phur Springs. The cold Bpring from
which they drink tastes very similar
to manufactured soda water, a little
stale, without any syrup in it.
It is quite, a watering place, very pret
tily situated, and at about the right

At "Forks Creek" below, the depot
literally stands over the creek, sup
ported by braces, slanting in to a foot
ing at the bed of tho stream. The en

CENTRAL AND I! LACK HAWK, -
two of the oldest, oddest, rockiest,
wealthiest, narrowest, up-hilliest min
ing points in Colorado.
Up 000 feet, and stepping off at
Blaek'Hawk, the portions of the town
near the depot are not particularly in
viting. The streets are very narrow,
the houses old, right on the stieets,
and the places on which they are built
literally hewed out of the rock. The
dust from the numerous mills (grind
ing ore) covers the sidewalks, and
must be annoying at times.
Bocks against rocks, and houses pil
ed on houses, was the impression it
gave me. Crude, rude, wedged in every
inconceivable shape into the crevices
and portholes of the rocks stand the
buildings, some in tiers, and others
shot into crannies, w lie re they stick by
natural selection, I guess; and yet
there iiiiix, artistic effect about them
thai must enrapture the painter and
I left the train to the right of me
and wandered up the one long single
street to Central. Seeing a road way
above me, on the left, from which I
thought I could get a better view, I
straggled towards it. climbing a nar
row, almost perpendicular foot-trail to
do so. When about half way up I was
startled by a roar and a rumble as if
the old mountain was abeut to open
and tumble all the rocks down. There
was actually something weird about
j it, for there, still above me, on my left,
thundering along, was the very train
I had left behind ine at the d pot, on
my right. And this brings me lo the
great railroad feat of engineering, by
which a rise of 500 feet is made in a
mile, between Central and Black Haw k,
From depot to depot by wagon road
is a mile, and the difference in altitude
540 feet. The railroad travels 4 miles
and zigzags across the face of the
mountain to reach Central. That's how
I come to lind it on the other side of
m? ; and it fail ly makes you shudder
to see the train speeding along at that
dizzy height, and yet no accidents have
happened that caused loss of life since
it w as built, and it is probably as safe
as the average express train East.
The upper end of the gulch is called
"Central," and, as usual, it widens out
at the top somewhat, and gives room
for a better class of houses, and an at
tempt at yards.
I follow the road clear on, up to
Central, determined to see what there
is beyond, and lind, as I have before,
that the tvp is a great way off. The
roughest of the canon may be passed,
the stony walls left behind; but vista
after vista opens above, and peak after
peak appears, till at last the great
range is reached through some moun
tain pass, and not till then can you say
you are at the top. Here I find some
open ground, even a small oat-field and
a h ay lot; but beyond tlie white peaks
glimmer, and far to the west James
Peak, bold and bare, towers above
timber line and the surrounding hiils.
This may indeed be called a mining
town, for the openings appear every
where, above, below, to the right of
you, to the left of you, at the edge of
the street, high up on the mountain
peak gleams the white refuse of the
prospect hole, deep beljw run the muiJ

A great deal of romance has been
indulged in with regard to the circum
stances of Miss Ward's history, but I
do not think, writes "Jennie Juno",
that the exact Tacts have ever been
told. It was at Nice, when, as I be
fore stated, she was only a girl of sev
enteen, she was married by the then
American consul to the Count de
Guerbel.a very handsome, but dissi
pated young Russian, who, however,
was not known for his propensities,
or for anything but as being singular
ly fascinating, a favorite with all the
women, and even with the men, and a
representative of one of the best Rus
sian families. Mrs. Col. Ward, Gene
vieve's mother the diuighter of Gid
eon Lee, of New York, and a woman
of great et.trgy and strength ot char
acter was as favorably iinruessed by
her daughter's suitor as the daughter
herself; but she was not satisfied that
the consular or civil marriage would
be sullicient, and insisted upon going
to Paris with' her daughter, an.l hav
ing the rites solemnized there accord
ing to the formulas of the Greek
Church. To this Count do Guerbcl
agreed, but he purposely delayed so
lohg r.fttr Mrs. Ward and her daugh
ter's departure, that Lent had begun,
and the marriage could not bo com
pleted, according to the laws of tho
Greek church, during its continuance.
In the mean time, the bridegroom
used all his arts to induce his almost
wife to elope with him, vowing and
promising the fullest acknowledge
ment and a princely settlement en
treaties which it must have been very
ditlicult for a young girl, a wife in
her own eyes, according to the laws of
her own country, to resist. But,
guarded and strengthened by the
presence of her mother and brother,
she refused to see him except in their
presence, until all forms had been
complied with and it was then that
the true character of the man began
to disclose itself. He promised, but
evaded, and finally left Paris, at the
instance, it was said, of the Emperor
of Russia, in w hose service he wa?, ho
having begun his career as page to tho
empress of Russia, at 12 veais of age,
and actually ran away with the beau
tiful wife of a general at 17. This es
capade was only forgiven through the
personal intervention of the empress
whose admiration for her handsome
page was so great that she had his
portrait painted full length and hung
in the palace.
His disappearance determined Mrs.
Ward upon seeking the advice and
counsel of her personal friend Gover
nor Seymour, then our minister to
Russia. She went with her daughter
to St. Petersburg, and they were in
vited to make their home iu his house
while he presented the case to 1'iince
Goi tschakoff, and through him to the
It was a time of the deepest anxi
ety. By marrying a Russian subject,
Miss Ward had forfeited her claim as
an American citizen, and could, there
fore get no passport to leave after en
tering the fountry. By failure to
comply with tho formulas of the
Greek church she had established no
right as a Russian wife, and was,
therefore, at the mercy of an unprin
cipled husband, and absolutely de
pendent on such grace as could be ob
tained from the emperor. With Rus
sian ideas of subjection and mastery
iu wedlock, the most that could be ex
pected was. that the emperor would
command the presence ot DcGuerbel,
and after compelling him to the com
pletion of his vows, deliver his wife
over to him as his property, and to a
fate which she had learned to dread
as the worst that could befall her.
To Prince Gortschakoff she dared to
confide her hopes and her fears, and
lie, in his turn, doubtless, communi
cated them to the emperor; for the
royal man, as he certainly was, not
only sent an instant summons to the
Count de Guerbel, commanding him
to be at the cathedral at Warsaw a. a
kiven lime or suffer banishment to Si
b.ria,but he sent a passport which en
abled the countess, with her mother,
lo leave the cathedral and the city of
Warsaw the instant the marriage had
been solemnized with all tho sacred
forms. The w isdom of this foresight
was sutllciently apparent on the
count's arrival. Bold, cruel, deter
mined, he announced his willingness
to complete his marriage according to
all the forms, provided his wife
should agree to live with him in Rus
sia. This she refused, at the same
time renouncing all right and title to
his property or anything but his name
which, in her own country, it was her
right to bear. Under these circum
stances, in the grand cathedral at
Warsaw, in the presence of Prince
Gortschakoff, as the representative of
the emperor, and her father, who came
from America to attend the ceremony,
this marriage, which had been con
ducted diplomatically, and on the
most august terms, took place, the
bride iu her traveling dress, taking
leave of her husband and all the per
sons present at the altar, and starl
ing with her mother instantly for
Italy, where she had decided to take
her life in her own hands and begin
her studies for a musical career. We
all remember the sensation which
