The woman then told Mr. Satterfleld
that Prof. Marshall had robbed her of $700
in Des Moines. Mrs, Satterfleld then drew
the envelope from her dress and dlacovered
that she, too, had been robbed. In place
of the money and ring that she bad left in

of a very nervous temperament, was pros

The strange woman said she had been
on the track of Prof. Marshall since he
left Des Moines and learned a few days
ago that be was In Omaha. She knew he
would likely go under a different name
here and had called at every houso where
she bad aeen the sign of a clairvoyant

Marshall given her she is satisfied he is the
man who robbed her.

OTHER LANDS THAU OCRS.
Two old men who have occupied con
spicuous positions In European politic
resigned from office a few days ago. Senor
Sagasta haa been In and out so often
at Madrid that his present resignation of
his ministry has an uncertain significance.
He haa had an Inharmonious cabinet, his
minister of war. General Weyler, being
generally credited with a desire to be him
self at the head of the government. We
aball know mora about the crisis when It Is
learned whether or not Sagasta la to try
to form another cabinet or definitely to
retire. The resignation of Popedonosteff,
the inexorable procurator of the holy
synod, who haa been so long a dominating
force In the govergment of Russia, has
vastly more Importance than any changes
In the vacllltatlng SpanlBh ministry. He
la the very embodiment of unchanging orth
odoxy, and his passing oft the scene at this
period of unrest suggests Infinite possl
bllltles from the revolutionary spirit that
la working in the czar's domain.
There appears to be a chance of some
substantial measure of educational reform
In Russia In the near future. As already
announced, the cxar has appointed a strong
commission to prepare a plan of reorgani
sation of the universities and other kindred

A striking Illustration of the changed
condition of affaire In Finland was given
the other day in Helaingfors. when a co
lossal statue of the great Finnish patriot
and scholar, Ellas Lonnrot, who died nearly
twenty years ago, was unveiled without
ceremonies of any kind. Lonnrot collected
and edited the great Finnish national epic.
the 'Kalevala,' and Is celebrated as the
father of the national Finnish literature.
The Drat steps towards the raising of the
statue, which was executed by the gifted
Finnish sculptor, Mr. E. Wlkstrom, were
taken by the Finnish Society of Literature,
The society applied some time ago
to the governor general for permission to
unveil the statue with the usual cere
monies, but the permission was only
granted under the Impossible condition that
alt speeches should be previously censored
by the governor general, and that the na
tional anthem must not be sung. This being
the first time that the Finnish national an
them had been formally forbidden, the so
ciety preferred that the statue should be
unveiled without any ceremonies. So the
figure waa uncovered without formalities
of any kind, but the number of wreaths,
coming from all parti of Finland, which
hsve been deposited at Ita feet, show how

The louil committees which were ap

ture in European Russia are stirring up a
great deal of trouble for the bureaucracy.
The plan was to hsve these committee
confine their reports strlotly within the
limits of the agricultural needs of the
country, but not one has done so. The
majority are treating the whole subject of
domestic government In the broadest man
ner, urging as their excuse that the agri
cultural depreasion is not an Isolated phe
nomenon, but Is merely an aspect of the
general Internal state of the country, snd
that there can be no substantial Improve
ment in the state of the rural population
without far-reaching changes in the whole
social and political organisation of the em
pire. The result of all this has been to
waken in Russia a very business-like dis
cussion of the need at th country, par
ticularly if the need oi extending the edu

Some of tho reports speak frankly of the
necessity of raising the status of the peas

ommend the substitution of an income tax
for several of the Indirect taxes that weigh
heavily on the fanning communities. As
these committees are composed of nobles
and small landowners they express the
sentiment of th country, as well as It

Th troubled state of affairs In Servla,
which have been occupying th attention of
continental statesmen for soms time past,
aro said to be due as much to social as to
political causes. Th czarina positively
refuses to have anything to do with Queen
Draga, and her determination on this point
makes a visit of Alexander and his wit to
St. Petersburg an impossibility. So long
as King Milan was alive to work for Aus
trian Interests, Russia are willing to cod
dle Alexander and his wife. Now that
Milan Is dead and out of the way, RusBia
Is quite willing to submit to the wlahes of
its empress. This is why Alexander, urged
on by his wife, has turned hla face toward
Austria and has been dismissing those of
his statesmen that have been particularly
favorable toward Russia. The complexity
