By Actors, left in an Asylum, anct
Had a Strange Experience.
k. A Birthmark and EesemWance May Pay
j Julia Mitchell $80,000.
The contest over the estate of Thomas
-Sheehan, of Sharpsburg, was taken np in
'Orphans Court, before Judge Hawkins,
yesterday. The case was opened by placing
Ann Sheehan, -widow of the deceased, on
the stand. She first testified that her hus
band died in 18S7, and his estate was Talced
at between $60,000 and $80,000. She was
. left a widow and married Sheehan in 1S52.
She had a daughter to Thomas Sheehan in
1855; this child was remoTed and given into
the care ot Mr. Sheehan's brother, who
lived at Saltsburg. This family was named
Gibbons. The Gibbons family afterwards
moved West, taking the child with them.
Sir. Sheehan had. in 1861, tried to find his
daughter, but failed, and the witness never
caw the child until after her husband's death,
when the claimant called, and .she identified
her by a birthmark and her close resemblance
, to the deceased.
j Dr. J. K. Robinson, of Sharpsburg; testified
. that he had known Thomas Sheehan for many
' Tears. He examined the claimant and found
on her a birthmark such as described by Mrs.
Kheehan. The claimant bore a very strong re
semblance to the deceased.
Julia Mary Mitchell, the claimant, was the
next -witness. She is about 35 years old, with
a peculiar Celtic cast of features. Her story
was that, when a child, she lived in the "West
with a family called Gibbons. She was given
by them to some family, but was not kept Ions.
One day vhile playing on the street she was
accosted by two men who promised her candy.
X)ne ot the men took her to a place where steps
wentnpahilL She was taken into theThouso.
and given in charge of a woman. The people
went by the name of Harrison. They were
actors. The family
and an actor named McClery took charge of
her add took her to St. Louis, and placed her
in an orphans' home, from which place'she was
taken by Mrs. Mitchell, of New Castle. In
lSS7shereadof the death of Mr. Sheehan and
of his peculiar life, and she concluded that she
was the lost daughter, and came on and joined
her mother.
In the afternoon Miss Mitchell was put
through a rather severe cross-examination, but
she answered in a straightforward manner, and
did not vary in the least from her rather re
markable story.
Mrs. Frances Laugher, a daughter of Mrs.
Sheehan by her first marriage, testified that
her father's name was Best; and while she was
yet a child her mother gave birth to a daugh
ter. This was after her father's death:
Lncretia Churchfleld, of New Castle, testi
fied to the child being brought to New Castle
by Mrs. Mitchell. William Churchfield, of
New Castle, testified the same as bis wife.
-Miss Mary Laugher, a granddaughter of Mrs.
Sheehan, testified that her grandmother had
told her of the lost child and of the birthmark
on the missing girl's person.
Mrs. Mary Kelly, daugnter of Mrs. Sheehan,
testified that she at one timesaid to her mother
that there was no nse of Mr. Sheehan working
so hard, as his money would go to outside rela
tives, and her mother had told her that there
was a daughter, and that she had seen her in
the market house. That was the first knowl
s. edg the witness ever had of there being a
' Mrs. Kate Beach, of Sharpsburg, knew Mr.
Sheehan for a number of years. She had a
conversation with Mrs. Sheehan one day, and
she told her of the missing daughter, and said
she would know her by the birthmark. Mrs.
Sheehan had also told her of seeing the child
in the market house.
Mrs. Patrick Haggerty, ot Sharpsburg, knew
Sheehan for 25 years. She had a conversation
with Mrs. Sheehan and she told her the same
story as related by the previous witness. The
witness stated that the claimant resembled the
deceased very much about the eyes and mouth,
and also in disposition. She had had a talk
with the man now deceased, and he had told
her that he had a daughter who would inherit
bisTiuoney. She afterward heard that the
child" wai in,an orphan' asylum. "Witness re
lated a. conveWon she had with Mrs. Shee
han in which tWIStter told her of a dream
about her missing daughter, who. she dreamed,
was working in a tailoring establishment.
. ".Mary Lutz, of New Castle, testified about
.Mr. Mitchell bringing the child to New Castle
in 1865. The witness had a talk with the girl
at the time, and ths story she told in court in
the morning corresponded with the story told
her at that time. She saw the birthmark on
the girl's person in 1870.
Miss Mitchell, the claimant, was recalled by
the defense, and asked concerning her abduc
tion by the actors, and she replied the same as
tn her testimony in chief.
Kev. Father George S. Grace, pastor of St.
Joseph's E. C Church of Sharpsburg, was
Sheehan's pastor from 1S75 until he died. He
testified that there was a very strong resem
blance between the claimant and the deceased,
not only in appearance, but also in her walk.
J. Haggerty and J. G. Stitz, of Sharpsburg,
who bad known Thomas Sheehan for many
years, testified to the strong resemblance be
tween the claimant and the deceased, not only
in looks, but in general manner.
The case will be taken np on Wednesday
rooming. The claimant has some additional
strong testimony to offers The case will prob
ably last three days, and is attracting general
attention among attorneys.

The Strange Case of Wilhelralna Slahl,
Which Pozzlea the Phyalclaas.
Chicago, April 29. -Much excitement
exists among the people of 'Jefferson Park,
asaborDof Chicago, regarding the strange
case of handsome young Miss Wilhelmina
Stahl, who, it is said, was to have been
married in July to a "United States Army
physician at Ft, Sheridan.
The Stahl family are among the new
comers in the village, consisting of a mother
and two daughters. One of the latter came
from Germany a few years ago, and by
clerking in one of the commercial houses in
Chicago, gained sufficient means to bring
her mother and sister across the ocean about
a year ago. This sister, Wilhelmina Stahl,
has been likewise engaged in business in the
city during the past year, until about three
weeks ago, when she became somewhat in
disposed. A physician's services were not
deemed necessary, until about'ten days be
fore her death, when Doctors Fonda and
Moore were summoned. Sr. Moore pro
nounced the girl beyond medical aid. The
ailment appears to have been rheumatism o'f
the heart.
Thursday the end came. Arrangements'
for the funeral were perfected to take place
on Sunday at 1 P. M. Many ot the neigh
bors assembled at that hour in tire residence.
The body of the deceased had been placed in
the coffin. Just before the services began
the mother and sister expressed doubts as to
whether death had actually ensued. The ap
pearance of the body seemed to give them
some warrant for their conclusion. There
was no evidence of decomposition, and none
of the usual rigor and stiffness were ap
parent. Besides this, there appeared color
in the face, and a contour to the body that
raised in their minds a serious doubt as to
'the extinction of all life.
The ceremonies were suspended for a con
siderable time until the physicians could
make an examination, not to verify their
own convictions but to satisfy the friends
and relatives. The several tests were made
as prescribed by medical science, all of
which seemed conclusive save as to one,
which the physicians are Irank in saying is
very unusual, although not indicating the
existence of life. An examination of
-the body showed to some of the
witnesses what is called evidences
of some "rigor mortis" a slight
movement of the muscles, which usually
ceases within' at most 12 hours alter death.
"Upon the physicians' advice, still firm in
their own convictions of the correctness of
their tests and conclusions, the funeral cer
emonies were suspended and the body taken
from the coffin and placed upon the couch.
No time has as yet been fixed for the funeral
services, and the relatives are caring for the
body with every appliance at hand to resus
citate it
To-day the watch was still beius kept up
and no change had become manifest in the
appearance of the corpse. All sorts of ru
mors: are current as coming from the at
tendant that indications of returning ani
mation have been detected, etc, but they
cannot be verified.!
The girl's husband, that-was-to-be, has
been An attendant at the bier during all this
strange, sad period.
He Saw the. Wreck.
Manager Clifford, a theatrical man, saw the
wreck at Hamilton, day before yesterday. He
said one poor fellow was' so wedged in that he
could not get out, and he cried piteously to be
shot while the fire was burning him. Another
man had. his bead cut off, and one had an arm
pulled oat of the socket.

Miss Draver, aged sixteen years, daughter of
Mr. Wm. H. Drayer, a well known shoe dealer,
had been afflicted with Club Foot fourteen
years, causing great distress and annoyance to
herself and family. There was sucha contrac
tion of the mnscles that she couldnot straighten
her limb, and although she wore the usual
high heel shoe, it was impossible for her to
bring her heel to the ground when walking.
After suffering on in this condition for four
teen years, she consulted one of the surgeons
of the Polypathic Surgical Institute, and was
convinced that it was sot too late to be
cured, An operation was performed, and the
deformity entirely removed, and although it is
now three years since the operation, her cure
has remained permanent. She walksperfectly,
and has no further use for a high heel shoe.
