est brother, (Jeorge Sullivan Maker, "a

a matter of fact, he was joint partner
with Alexander Tilton, and together
they owned a large manufacturing es-

1 will say that there was never a !

McClure's .Magazine says that "the
quarrels between Mary, a child ten also paid Mrs. (Hover's fare to New
years old, and her father, a gray-haired j York city, where she was met and
man of fifty, frequently set the house taken to her father's home by her

tlrst edition of Scii'iiceand Health was
published Dr. Ladd said to Alexander
Tilton: "Read it. for it will do you
good. It does not surprise me, it so
resembles the author."
I will relate the following incident,
which occurred later in life, as illus
trative of my disposition:
While I was living with Dr. Patter
son at his country home in Runnioy,
N. II., a girl, totally blind, knocked at
the door and was admitted. She beg
ged to be allowed to remain with me.
and my tenderness and sympathy were
such that 1 could not refuse her.
Shortly after, however, my good house
keeper said to me: "If this blind girl
stays with you I shall nave to leave,
She troubles me so much." It was
not in my heart to turn the blind girl
out. and so I loUt my housekeeper.
My reply to the statement that the
clerk's book shows I joined the Tilton
Congregational church at the age of
seventeen,- is that my religious experi
ence seemed to culminate at twelve
years of age. Hence a mistake may
have occurred as to the exact date of
my first membership.

Fresh Roasted Coffee ?
Mother didn't use fresh roasted coffee,
she had Arbuckles.'
The way to get a good cup of coffee that
tastes like Coffee with all the delicious flavor
and aroma intact, is to buy a package of the
old original Arbuckles ARIOSA Coffee, and
grind it ,as you want to use it, first wanning it a little to
develop the flavor and make the grinding easy. Coffee
loses its identity as Coffee after being ground or exposed to
the air and is easily contaminated by handling.

Regarding my llrst marriage antl
the tragic death of my husband, Me
Clare's Magazine says: "He ((leorgc
Washington (.Hover) took his bride to
Wilmington, youth Carolina, and in
.lune, 1814, six months after his mar
riage, he died of yellow fever. He left
his young bride in a miserable plight,
She was far from home and entirely
without money or friends. (Hover,
however, was a Freemason, and thus
received a decent burial. The Masons
taught school."
My llrst husband. Major (Jeorge W.
(Hover, resided in Charleston. South
Carolina. While on a business trip to
Wilmington. North Carolina, he was
suddenly seized with yellow fever and
died in about nine days. I was with
him on this trip. He tool; with him
the usual amount of moiiev he would
need on such an excursion. At his
decease I was surrounded by friends,
and their provisions in my behalf were
most tender. The governor of the slate
and his stall", with a long procession.
followed the remains of my beloved
one to the cemetery.
The Freemasons selected my escort,
who took nic to my father's home in
Tilton, X. II. My salary for writing
gave me ample support. I did open
an infant school, but it was simply for
the purpose of starting that educa
tional system in New Hampshire. The
rhyme attributed to me by McClure's
Magazine is not mine, but is, I under-
stand, a paraphrase of a silly song of
years ago. Correctly quoted, it is as
follows, so I have been told:
(!i) to Jane (Hover.
Tell her I love her:
My the light of the moon
I will go to her.
The various stories told by McClure's
Magazine about my father spreading
the road in front of his house with
tan-bark and straw, and about per-
sons being hired to rock ami swing
me, i am ignorant ot. .Nor tto I re
member such a thing as Dr. Patterson
driving into Franklin. N. II., with a
couch or cradle for me in his wagon.
I only know that my father and mother
did everything they could think of to
help me when I was ill.
I was never "given to long and lone
ly wanderings, especially at night" as
stated by McClure's Magazine. I was
always accompanied by some responsi
ble individual when I took an evening
walk, but 1 seldom took one. I have
always consistently declared that J

never was "an amateur clairvoyant,"
nor did "the superstitious country folk
frequently seek my advice." I novcr
went into a trance nor described
scenes far away, as McClure's .Maga
zine says.
My oldest sister dearly loved me, but
I wounded her pride when I adopted
Christian Science, and to a llaker that
was a sorry offense.
McClure's Magazine calls Dr. Daniel
Patterson, my second husband, "ait
itinerant dentist." It, says that after
my marriage we "lived for a short
time at Tilton, then moved to Frank
lin. . . . During the following nine;
years the Pattersons led a roving ex
istence. Thi' doctor practiced in sev
eral towns, from Tilton to North !ro
ton ami Ruiuuey."
When I was married to him, Dr.
Daniel Patterson was located in Frank
lin, X. II. lie had the degree D.D.S.,
was a popular man. and considered u
rarely skillful dentist, lie bought a
place at Itumuey. which he fancied, for
a summer resort. At that time hi"
owned a house in Franklin, N. II.
Although, as McClure's Magazine
claims, the court record may state that
my invoice from Dr. Patterson w as
granted on the ground of desertion,,
the cause nevertheless was adultery.
Individuals are here today who wenr
present in court when the decision
was given by the judge ami who know
the following facts: After the evi
dence had been submitted that a hus
band was about to have Dr. Pattersoin
arrested for eloping with his wife, the
court instructed the clerk to record
the divorce in my favor.
What prevented Dr. Patterson's ar
rest was a letter from incMO this sclf
same husband imploring hliunot tod(
it. Whin this husband recovered his
j wife, he kept her a prisoner in her
home, ami I was also the means of
reconciling the couple. A Christian
Scientist has told me that with tears
of gratitude the wife of this husband
related these facts to her just as I have,
stated them. I lived with Dr. Patter
son peaceably, and he was kind to nu:
up to the time of the divorce.
