'I almost wish.lt was dark ajjain," the cirl
said with a little laugh: 'In the dart tou seem
to mo the Serceant Blunt who came Justin
time to save us that day tbefarni was attacked;
but now I can see you I cannot recognize you
at nil: even your ecs look quite different In
that black skin."

Ronald told her the source from which no de
rived his wis, and Mary Armstrong had diffi
culty in restraining herself from bursting out
into a merry laugh. Two or three of the Fin
goes had by this time returned, and in a few
minutes all had gathered at the spot. Kreta
listened to the reports of each of his men.
There was then a short consultation. Then he
came un to Ronald.
One of my men has found a place that will
do well." be said. "It is time we were coing."
One of the Fingoes now took the lead; the
others followed. A quarter of an hour's walk
up the hill, which grew steener and steeper
every step, brought them to a spot where wme
masses of rock bad fallen from above. They
were half covered with the thick growth of
bruh and sod. The native pushed one of the
bubes aside and showed a sort of cave formed
bj a creat slab of rock that had fallen over the
others. Krota uttered an expression of ap
pro aL Two of the nativos crept in with their
assegais in their hands. In two or three min
utes one of them returned with the bodies of
two puff adders that they had killed. These
were dropped in among s.imo rocks.
i'ou can go in now," Kreta said. "There
are no more of them."
Ronald crawled in first, and helped Mary
Armstrong in after him. The natives followed.
Kreta came in last, carefully examining the
bush before he did so, to see tbat no twig was
broken or disarranged. He managed as he
entered to place two or three rooks over the
f 11 trTi cp
"Good place," he said, looking round as he
joined the others. It was of ample sua to con
tain the party, and was some four feet in
height. Light came in in several places be
tween the rocks on which tho upper slab rested.
"It could not be better, Kreta, even if it had
been made on purpose. It was lucky indeed
your fellow found it."
"We found tno or three others," the chief
sad. "but this best"
"It is lnckv tlioo men came in first and
founa the snakes." Mary Armstrong said, "for
k e have not got here the stuff we always use in
the Colony as an antidote, and their bite is al
most always fatal unless that can be used in
time." Ronald was aware of this, and had, in
deed, during the night's march had snakes
constantly in his mind, for he kuew that tliev
abounded in the hills. One of the Fingoes bad
taken his station at the entrance, having moved
the upper stone the chief had placed there, so
tbat be conld sit with his head ont of the open
ing. Half an hour after they had entered tho
cave he turned round and spoke to the chief.
The Kaffirs are hunting," Kreta said. Lis
tening at the opening they could hear distant
shouts. They were answered from many points,
some of them comparatively close.
'Tho news is being passed from kraal to
kraal," Ronald said; "they will be up like a
swarm of bees now, but search as they will they
are not likely to find us here. So you think
thev will trace ns at all. Chief? '
They will find where we stopped close to
kraal." Kreta said; "the dead leavos were
stirred by our feet; after that not find, too
many people gone along path; ground very
hard: may find, sometime, mark of white
woman's shoe; but we leave path many times,
and after I carry no find at all. Mountains
verv big, much bush; neer find here."
The chief now told Ins follower to replace
the none and join the others, and that all
should be silent, bitting with his ear at one of
tbe openings, he listened to the sounds in the
woods; once or twite he whispered that Kaffirs
were passingclose, searching among the lnine;
and one party came so near that their words
could be plainly heard in the cave. They were
discussing tbe manner In which the fugitive
had escaped, and were unanimous in tbe belief
that she had been aided by tbe followers of
some other chief, for that an enemy sbonld
have penetrated into the heart of the Aniatolas
did not strike tliem as possible.
Tbe argument was rather which of the other
chiefs would have enturcd to have robbed
Macomo, and the opinion inclined to tbe fact
tbat it must have been Sandilli himself, who
would doubtless bat o heard, from the messen
ger sent over on tho previous afternoon to in
form Macomo, of the return of theviand with
a pretty joung white woman as a capttv.
Macomo had doubtless been drunk, and San
dilli might have determined to have tbe prize
earned off for himself.
Mary Armstrong shuddered as she listened
to the talk, but n hen they had gone on Kreta
'Good thing the Kaffirs have that thought,
not search so much here, bearch in Sandilli's
country. Perhaps make great quarrel between
Macomo and Sandilli. Good thing that."
As the day went on the spirits of the Fingoes
rose, and in low tones thev exnressed their de
light at having outwitted the Kaffirs.
No footsteps had been heard in their neigh
borhood for some time, and they felt sure that
tbe search had been abandoned in that quar
ter. Toward sunset all ate a, hearty meal, and
as soon as it became dark tbe stones at the en
trance were removed and the party crept out.
Mary Armstrong had slept the greater part of
the day. and Ronald and the Fingoes had also
passed a portion of their time in sleep. They
btarted, therefore, refreshed and strong.
It took them many hours of patient work be
fore tbey arrived at the edge of the forest on
the last swell of the Amatolas. They hid
been obliged to make many detours to avoid
kraals, and to surmount the precipices that
often barred their way Thev had started
about 8 in the evening, and it was. as they
knew from the stars, fnllv 3 o'clock in the
morning when they emerged from the forest.
Mar Armstrong had kept on well with the
rest; her feet was extremely painful, but she
was now strong and hopeful, and no word of
complaint escaped her. Ronald and the chief
kept by her side, helping her up or down dfQ
cult places, and assisting her to pass through
the thorny busl.es which caught her dress and
would have rendered it almost impossible for
her to get through unassisted. Once out of the
bush, the party hurried down the grassv slone,
and then kept on a mile further. The
chief now gave a, long call. It was
answered faintly from a distance; in fivo
minutes tbe sound of a horse's hoofs were
heard, and in a short time the Fmgo who had
been left in charge of it galloped up with
Ronald's horse. Mary Armstrong was sitting
on the ground, for she was now so utterly ex
hausted she could no longer keep her f eet,and
had, since they left tbe bush, been supported
and half carried by Ronald and Kreta. She
made an effort to rise as tbe horse came up.
"Please wait a moment, I will not be above
two minntes," Ronald said; "but I really can
not ride into "Williamstown like this."
He unstrapped his valise, took the jack
boots that were banging from the saddle, and
moved away in tbe darkness. In two or three
minutes he returned in his uniform.
"I feel a civilized being again," he said,
laughing; "a handful of sand at the first stream
we come to will get most of this black off my
face. 1 have left the wig as a legacy to any
Kaffir who may light upon it. Now I will shift
the saddle a few inches further back. I think
you had better ride before me, for you are com-
Eletely worn out, and I can bold you there
etter than yon could bold yourself if you were
to sit behind me." He strapped on his valise,
shifted bis saddle, lifted Mary up, and sprang
up behind ber.
"Are you comfortable?" he asked.
"Quite comfortable," she said, a little shyly,
and then they started. The light was just be
ginning to break in the east as they rode out
from the clump of trees. Tbey were not oat of
danger yet, for parties of Kaffirs might be met
with at any time until they arrived within
musket shot of King Williamstown. The Fin
goes ran at pace that kept tbe horse at a sharp
trot. It was very pleasant to Ronald Mervyn
to feel Mary Armstrong in his arms, and to
know, as he did, how safe and confident she
felt there; but he did not press her more closely
than was necessary to enable her to retain her
seat, or permit himself to speak in a softer or
tenderer tone than usual.
"If we should come across any of these
scoundrels, Mary." he said presently, "do jou
take tbe reins. Do you think you can sit steady
without my holding you firmly?"
"Yes." the girl said, "if I put one foot on
yours I could certainly bold on. I could twist
one of my hands in the horse's mane."
"Can you use a pistol?"
"Of course 1 can." she replied. "I was asgood
a shot as my father."
"That is all right, then. I will give you one
of my pistols, then I can bold you with my
right arm, tor the horse may plunge if a spear
strikes him. I will use my pi-tol in my left
hand. I will sec that no one catches bis bridle
on tbat side; do you attend to the right I
hopo it won't come to tbat, Etill there's never
any saying, and we shall have one or two nasty
J ilaces to piss through on our way down. We
lave tbe advantage tbat should there bean'
Kalflrs there tbey will not be keeping a watch
this nay, and we may hope to get pretty well
through them before tbey see us."
"Will you promise me ono thing, Ronald ?"
she asked. "Will you shoot me if yon find that
we cannot get past ?"
"I am not at all afraid of death," she said:
"deith would be nothing like that. I would
rather die a thousand times than fall into tbe
hands of the Kaffirs again."
'I promise j ou, Mary, my last shot bnt one
shall be for yon, my last for myself: bnt if I am
struck off the horse by a bullet or assegai you
must trust to your own pistol."
"I will do that, Ronald, I have been perfectly
happy since you took me out of the but; I have
not seemed to feel any fear of being recap
tured, fur I felt tbat if tbey overtook ns I
could always escape so. On tbe way there, if
I could have got bold of an assegai I should
have stabbed myself."
"Thank God you didn't," satyi Roland,
earnestly, "though I could sot cave blamed
rTbey paused at the entrance of each kloof
through which tbey had to yass, and the Fin
goes went cautiously ahead Searching through
thebniaes. It was not untjiTie heard their call
on the other side tbat Ronald galloped after
"I begin to hope tbat we shall get through
now." Ronald said, after emerging from one of
these kloofs; "we have only one bad place to
pass, but, of course, the danger is greatest
there, as from that the Kaffirs will be watch
ing against any advance of the troops from tbe
Tbe Fingoes were evidently of the same
opinion, for as they approachcdit Krctastopped
to sneak to Ronald.
"Kaffir sure to be here," he said, "but me
and my men can creep through: but we must
not call to you, incos; the Kaffirs would hear us
and be on tho watch. Safest plan for us to go
through first, not go along paths, but through
bush; then for you to gallop straight through;
even if they close to path, you get before they
time to stop you. I think that best way."
"I think so too, Kreta. If they hear the
horse's hoofs coming from behind they will
suppose it Is a mounted messenger from the
hills. Anyhow, I think that a dash for it is our
"I think so. incos. I think you get through
safe if go fast."
"How long will you be getting through,
"Quarter of an hour," tbe chief said; "must
go slow. You ride four, fivo minutes."
Kreta stood thoughtfully for a minute or
"Me don't like it; incos. Mo tell you what we
do. Wekeepoer to left, and then when we
pet just through the bush we fire our guns.
Then the Kaffirs very much surprised and Ml
run that way, and you ride straight through."
"But they might overtake you. Kreta."
"lhey no overtake," the chief said con
fidently. "We run fast and get good start.
Williamstown only one hour's walk; run less
than half honr. They no catch us."
When the Fingoes had been gone about ten
minutes, Ronald, assured that tne Kaffirs would
be gathered at tbe far end of tbe kloof, went
forward at a walk. Presently he beard six
shots fired in rapid succession. This was fol
lowed bv an outburst or yells and cries in front,
and he set spurs to his horse and dashed for
ward at a gallop. He was nearly through the
kloof when a body of Kaffirs, who were running
through the wood from tho right, burst sud
denly from the bushes into tbe path. So as
tonished were they at seeing the white man
within a few vards of them that for a moment
they aid not think of using their weapons, and
Ronald dashed throngh them, scattering them
to right and left. But others sprang from the
boshes. Ronald shot down two men who
sprang at the horse's bridle, and he heard
Mary Armstrong's pistol on the other
side. He had drawn his sword before
setting off at a gallop. "Hold tight, Mary." he
said, as be relaxed bis bold of her and cut
down a native who was springing upon bim
lrom the bushes. Another fell from a bullet
from the pistol, and then he was through tbem.
"Stoop down, Mary," ho said, pressing her for
ward on the horse's neck and bending down
over her. He felt his horse give a sudden
spring, and knew that it was bit with an asse
gai; while almost at the same instant he felt
a sensation as of a hot iron running from his
belt to his shoulder, as a soear ripped up
cloth and flesh and then glanced along over his
A moment later and they were out of the kloof
ana riding at full speed across the open. Look
ing over his shou'der. he saw that tbe Kaffirs
gave up pursuit after following for 100 yards.
Over on the left he heard dropping shots, and
presently caught a glimpse in that direction of
the Fingoes running in a close body, pursued
at tho distance of 100 yaras or so by a large
number of Kaffirs. But others had beard the
sound of firing; for a minute or two be saw a
body of horsemen riding at fnll speed from
Williamstown in the direction of the firing.
He at once checked the speed of his horse.
"We are safe now, Mary; that is a troop of
our corps. Are you hit?"
"No, lam not touched. Aroyouhurt,Ronald?
I thought I felt you start"
"I ha ve got a bit of a scratch on the back, but
it's nothing serious. I will getoff in a moment,
Marv; the horse has an.assegai In bis quarters,
and I must get it out."
"Take me down, too, please; I feel giddy now
it is all over."
Ronald lifted her down, and then pulled the
assegai from the horse's back.
"I don't think much harm Is done," he said:
"a fortnight in tbe stable and he will be all
"You are bleeding dreadfully," the girl ex
claijicd. as she caught sight of bis back. "It's
a terrible wound to look at.' '
Then it looks worse than it is." he laughed.
"The spear only glanced alongon tho ribs. It's
lucky I was stooping so mucn. After going
throngh what we have we may think ourselves
well oil indeed that we have escaped with such
a scratch as this between ns."
"It's not a scracli at all." tbe girl said, indig
nantly: "it's a very deep, bad cnr."
Pe"rhaps it is a bad cut," Ronald smiled,
"but a cut is nf no consequence one way or
the other. Now let ns join the others. Ah,
here tbey come, with Kreta showing them the
The troopers had chased the Kaffirs back to
the bush, and, led by the Fingo, were now
coming up at a gallop to the spot where Ron
ald and Mary Armstrong were standing by the
"Ah.it is yon. Sergeant,'' Lieutenant Daniels
said, for it was a portion of Ronald's old troop
that had ridden up. "I never expected to see
you again, for we heard the day before yester
day from tbe levy officer who came in with the
ammunition wagons tbat you bad cone off to
try to rescue three ladles who had been carried
off by tbe Kaffirs. It was a mad business,
but you have partlv succeeded, I am glad to
see," and he lifted his cap to Mary Arm
strong. "Partly, sir," Ronald said. "The wretches
killed the other two tbe day tbey carried tbem
off. Tliis is Miss Armstrong. I think you
stopped at her father's bouse one day when we
were out on the Kabousie."
"Xes, of course," the lieutenant said alight
ing. "Kxcuse me for not recognizing you. Miss
Armstrong, but. in fact "
"In fact, I look very pale, and ragged, and
"I am not surprised at that. Miss Armstrong.
You must have gone through a terrible time,
and I heartily congratulate bergeant Blunt on
tho suecess of his gallant attempt to rescue
"Have you heard from my father? How is
"Your father, Miss Armstrong! I have
heard nothing about him since I heard from
Sergeant Blunt tbat you had all got safely
away after that attack."
"He was in the wagon, sir," Ronald ex
plained, "he was hnrt in tbe fight with tho
Kaffirs, and Mr. Nolan brought him back in
"Oh, 1 heard he bad brought a wounded man
with him; but I did not bear the name. Nolan
said he had been badly wounded, hut the sur
geon said that he thought he might get round.
I have no doubt that tho sight of Miss Arm
strong will do him good,"
"Perhaps, sir," Ronald said, faintly, "you
will let one of the troop ride on with Miss Ara
strongat once. I thinklniust wait fora bit."
"Why, what is it. Sergeant?" tho lieutenant
asked, catching him by the arm, for be saw
that be was on the point of falling. "Yon are
wounded, I see; and here am I talking about
other thiDgs and not thinking of you."
Two ot the troop leant from their horses and
laid Ronald down, for he bad fainted, overcome
partly by the pain and loss of blood, but more
by the sudden termination of the heavy strain
of tbe last four days.
"It is only a flesh wound, Miss Armstrong.
There is no occaion for fear. He bas fainted
from loss of blood, and I have no doubt for a
moment bnt be will soon oe all right again.
Johnson, hand your horse over to Miss Arm
strong, and do you, Williams, ride over with
her to the hospital. We will have Sergeant
Blunt in the hospital half an hour after you get
there, Mtss Armstrong." ,
"It seems very unkind to leave him," the girl
said, "after all he has done for me."
"He will understand It, my dear young lady,
and you can lie him in the huspital directly you
Mary reluctantly allowed herself to be lifted
into the saddle and rodo off with the trooper.
'Now take his jacket and shirt off," the
Lieutenant said, "it's a nasty rip tbat be has
got. I suppose that he was leaning forward in
tbe saddle when the spear touched him. It's
lucky that it glanced up instead of going
Tbe soldiers removed Ronald's coat. There
was no shirt underneath, for be had not waited
to put one on when be mounted. Tho troopers
had heard from their comrades, on the return
of the escort, that the sergeant had, before
starting, got himself up as a native, and they
were not therefore surprised, as they otherwise
would have been, at his black skin.
"Put your hand into the left holster of my
saddle," the lieutenant raid. "You will find
two or three bandages and some lint there;
tbey are things that come in handy at this work.
Lay tbe lint in the gash. That's right. Press
it down a little and put some more in. Now
lift him up a little, while I pass these bandages
round his bodv. There; I think be will do now;
but there's no'doubt that it is a nasty wound.
It has cut right through the mnsclesof the back.

Some brandy and water was poured between
Ronald's lips, aud be soon opened his eyes.
Don't move. Sergeant, or vou will set your
wound off bleeding again. We will soon get
you comfortably into hospital. Ab, tbat is tbe
very thing; good men," be broke off, as Kreta
aud the Fingoes brought up a litter which they
had been busyin constructing. "Miss Armstrong
has ridaen on to the hospital to see her father.
She wanted to stop, but I sent ber on, so tbat
we conld bandage you comfortably."
"I think I can sit a horse now," Ronald
said, trying to rise.
"I don't know whether you can or not, Ser
geant; bnt vou are not going to try. Now, lads,
lift him on to the litter."
Kreta and tbe two troopers lifted him care
fnlly.outo the litter; then four of the Fingoes
pUced it on their shoulders. Another took
Ronald's horse, which now limped stiffly, and
led it along behind the litter; and with the
troop bringing up tbe rear, tbe party started
for King Williamstown.

A Strong Protest Made Against Pilling Up

INTERFERING BRIDGES CONDEMNED
Captain "W. B. Rodgers, Captain Snow
den, S. R. Patterson, Captain John A.
"Wood, Harry Brown, Captain J. A. Black
more, Captain John P. Dravo, Captain Mc
Donald and other rivermen, about half of
the Pittsburg delegation to the "Waterways
Convention at Cincinnati, returned home
yesterday morning. The other members of
the party are expected to arrive this morn
ing. The Pittsburg delegation is highly
pleased with the work done by the conven
tion. It was the largest assemblage of river
men ever held in America. Fifteen -States
were represented. About 1,000 men were
present from the Ohio, Mississippi and
Missouri Valleys, and all the actions of the
bodv were harmonious. Captain "Wood, as
Chairman of theExecutive Committee.called
the convention to order, and made a stirring
speech concerning the wonderful progress of
inland navigation. Captain Dravo was ap
pointed to represent Pittsburg on the Com
mittee on Resolutions, and made one of the
most effective speeches in the convention.
FOUB OBJECTS IN VIEW.
The Pittsburg delegation went to Cincin
nati to secure the approval of four distinct
ideas in the lineof navigation improvement.
The first was the freedom of the Mononga
hela river; the second, the project of con
structing a canal from the Ohio river to
Lake Erie; the third, the improvement of
the upper Ohio river by the movable dam
system; and the fourth, prohibition of the
further obstruction and narrowing of the
channels bv bridges and filling-in on the
part of manufacturing establishments. The
delegation secured the completeindorsement
of these four ideas by the convention.
Captain Dravo, in a speech which he
made to the convention, called its attention
to the encroachments which are being con
tinually made on the Monongahela river by
iron mills and other manufacturing estab
lishments, which are dumping slag, cinders
and other rubbish over the banks, "making
land," as they call it, but steadily narrow
ing the river channel. Captain Dravo
declared that the safety of the public de
manded that steps be taken at once to stop
this filling up. The convention, by resolu
tion, authorized its Executive Committee to
appeal to Congress on the subject.
Tbe following resolution, ot special im
portance to Pittsburg, was passed:
That this convention heartily approves the
connection of tbe waters of tbe upper Ohio
river with the great northwest lake system
through the waters of Lake Erie, by the con
struction of a ship canal, if, upon a survey, the
same be found practicable.
AIT EXPERT INQUIRY NEEDED.
On this point Captain W. B. Rodgers said
yesterday: "The representatives from points
down tbe river look upon the canal scheme
as a good one. They are not skeptical
about its benefits, but the last clause of the
resolution simply means that rivermen will
wait for the report of the engineers to be ap
pointed to make the survey. There is some
question whether a sufficient supply of water
can be obtained, and some other points of
detail which can be decided only by an ex
pert inquiry and survey. All the delegates
to the convention seem to appreciate the im
portance of the project. It is evident that
it would be of wonderful advantage to this
city, more particularly to the iron and coal
interests. The "Western delegates espe
cially from Iowa and Illinois, were very
energetic in support of the canal project.
It would, they saw, make a continuous cir
cuit of water communication by way of the
lakes, taken in connection with the Henne
pin Canal. That canal would connect the
Mississippi river with Lake Michigan,
while the Lake Erie and Ohio river canal
would close the other side of the circuit,
leading from the.lakes back to the Ohio and
tbe Mississippi. The Hennepin Canal
scheme was approved by the convention.
"The convention also approved the pro
ject of purchase, by the Government, of the
locks on the Monongahela river. Its senti
ment was that all slack waters should be
free to navigation.
"Our Executive Committee will urge
these matters upon Congress at its session

After two failures to get a quorum the
Committee on Public "Works finally Jiad a
meeting yesterday, there being present the
full membership. A large number of ordi
nances were recommended to Councils
affirmatively, among them one for the
widening of Cecil alley, between Liberty
street and Duquesne way. The petition for
the improvement and the ordinance were
read at length.
The former provides for making the alley
a street 50 feet wide, and states tbat the im
provement would open Fifth avenue out to
the Allegheny river, add materially to the

the overcrowded condition of Sixth street
No better time, the petition states, could be
taken for the improvement than now, as the
work on the new buildings at the corner of
Fifth and Liberty streets has been suspend
ed pending the result of the peti
tion, and no other buildings on
the east line of the alley would be
materially damaged. The ordinance pro
vides that the cut is to be made on the east
side of the alley, from the north side of Lib
erty street to the south side of Duquesne
way, the work to be done bv the Chief of
the Department of Public "Works within 60
days of tbe passage of the ordinance. T. C.
Jenkins, R. H. Johnston, President of the
North Sub-District School Board, John S.
Scull, Cashier of the Diamond National
Bank, and C.L. Magee, through his attor
ney, are the signers to the petition.
There was no opposition offered to the
ordinance, and several members made brief
speeches, pointing out the 'benefits that
would result from making this alley a busi
ness street, as it would be if widened.
A resolution giving the Pittsburg and
Castle Shannon Railway Company the right

The Old Summer Resort, Frankfort Springs,
to Have n New Lease of Life Extending
tbe Imperial Road.
The proposed extension of the Imperial
Coal Company's railroad from Imperial to
Frankfort means more than many have any
idea. If the road is completed a syndicate
composed of prominent Pittsburgers and
several New Yorkers propose to revive the
old-time prestige of Frankfort Springs,
about a mile from Frankfort, as a summer
resort. Their capital will be about ?50,000,
to be increased if necessary to develop the
The land on which the springs are situ
ated, with the beautiful park scenery sur
rounding them, includes about 150 acres.
The company will build a hotel, to cost
something like $25,000, and use the remain
ing sum to beautify the grounds.
"With the proposed extension completed,
it would give direct communication with
Pittsburg and be less ihan an hour's ride to
Frankfort. The springs are about a mile
from the town and could be made easy of
access. The route would be via the Lake
Erie road to Montour Junction, about ten
miles, thence over the Imperial Coal Com
pany's line to Imperial, about 11 miles, and
from the latter place to Frankfort, via the
new extension, about 13 miles, making the
total distance from Pittsburg 34 miles.
The scenery about tho springs is said to
surpass anything near the city.
It is tbe intention to dam the stream run
ning through the grounds and form a lake a
mile or so long and 200 or 300 feet wide. It
will be just at the foot of a small mountain
gorge, and it is thought will form a great
One of the projectors said that he had
lately seen foxes, partridges, porcupines,
rabbits, grouse and other wild game in the
region. Beautiful drives will be made, run
ning ont some distance from the grounds.
It is a pretty sure thing that the railroad
will be completed in the near future. Pub
lic meetings have been held by its pro
moters in the towns on the route and con
siderable interest manifested. The section
has no direct communication with Pitts
burg. Frankfort Springs, in the years gone by,
was a favorite lesort for Pittsburgers before
railroad transportation to other points cut it
off from the world at large. The old hotel,
then used, now stands on the grounds.

WITH JENNESS MILLER'S SYSTEM.
Timelj Hints for Pittsburg Women Who
Heard the Lecture.
STEEP PRICES F0EEEF0RM GARMENTS
1WEITTEX FOB THE DISFATCR.l
During my two weeks' residence in Pitts
burg I have noticed that the Jenness Miller
costumes are "conspicuous only by their ab
sence," but as Jenness herself has now been
here, the epidemic of "Physical Culture"
and "Dress Reform" that will result from
her lecture will certainly satisfy the most
devoted admirer and advocate of the system
unless Pittsburg ladies differ from their sis
ters. Over a year ago I first heard Mrs.
Miller lecture in the city of Chicago.
Of course I was converted. Everyone is
tbat hears her. I could hardly wait until I
reached home to discard my corset that was
as much of the reform as I could afford to
adopt just at that time, for I had "in stock"
a wardrobe which, although not made
by "Worth," -was worth considerabl
to me, and it behooved me to wait until
new garments were necessary and my pocket
book attained a more rounded appearance
before I reformed entirely. Last June I
found myself in Oberlin, O., and again had
the pleasure of listening to a lecture given
by tbe same talented lady. It was much
more interesting in some respects than the
Pittsburg talk. In the first place we had
a "horrid newspaper man" in female attire
to be gotten rid of, and then the college
students climbed up the outside of the
chapel and looked down the skylight, and
tbe college girls (by whose invitation Mrs.
Miller was leoturing) hissed as only college
girls can, and sent lor the marshal, who ar
rived on the scene with two assistants and
arrested the disturbers, who I believe were
given the opportunity of buying tickets for
home the next day. Talk about "woman's
curiosity," nonsense, for the real genuine
article give me man; but to return to my
SHE GETS PBICES.
After hearing the second lecture I was
more than ever converted and concluded, as
I was to have a week's vacation in tbe city
of Chicago, to utilize the time in having
some new garments made. Of course I
knew I couldn't be as' graceful nor have
the magnificent physique that Mrs. Miller
has by simply adopting her style of dress,
Dut I could be comfortable. Accordingly I
visited a dressmaker in the fashionable part
of Chicago. She was robed from the skin
out in the new style. She formed a very
"fetching" picture and a telling advertisement-After
exchanging greetings I said: "I
am desirous of adopting the Jenness Miller
reiorm system, and would like to know
your schedule of prices for the underwear,
you furnishing all the materials, of course."
With the most bewitching smile possible,
"The chemisetts in silk range from 15 to
$25 apiece; in cambric from $6 to $10."
"What in muslin?" I ventured to ask,
with what breath remained after hearing the
preceding figures. I immediately repented
my rashness and "sank into my proper in
significance," as the madam gave me a sur
prised, injured look, and informed me that
muslin was not made up in her establish
ment. As soon as I recovered my equili
brium I said:
"Well, what are the leglets worth?" fear
ing she would not think me ivorthy further
conversation unless I questioned her after
mentioning such a democratic fabric as
muslin. I am inclined to give her the
benefit of tbe doubt, however. I don't think
there was any intended malice in her reply,
but it was as follows:
"In silk, $25; in cambric, from $12 to $18."
"But," I said, "I want something more
reasonable, and something that will not re
quire laundrying often."
"Well, I can make you some of black

HEB FrWAX riTTINOS.
I felt like answering Shakespeare's query,
"What's in a name?" with the word money,
but I refrained, and said instead, "What is
your estimate upon a dress like you are
wearing, which was the simplest style of the
Jenness Miller patterns a lull skirt, shirred
waist, and wide belt made of India silk."
After a , certain amount of figuring on the
materials it would require, she said,
"Thirty-five dollars would be the lowest
estimate I can possibly make." I began
to realize that I was not one of "fortune's
favorites," but a woman dependent upon her
own resources entirelv for funds. The fig
ures were enormous, but as my time was
limited, I knew no alternative, so gave my
order and signed over acheck for nearlytwo
At the end "of the week, after various fit
tings, I went for the final "try on." The
chemisettes were lovely, dainty "as could be,
but as I looked at them I thought it would
be much more sensible for me to wrap them
up in tissue paper and put them in my trnnk
than to wear them and send to promiscuous
washwomen. The leglets were not so pretty,
and when I got into them I felt as if some
unseen power was trying to lift me off ray
feet, but when I remarked the sensation
the Madame silenced me with, "Of course
they will feel strange to you until you be
come accustomed to them, but you will soon
like tbem, everyone does. See mine," and
she raised her dress displaying as trim and
neat a little foot and leg (Jenness says that
is the proper name for that extremity) as
ever leglets encased.
AKD HEB EXPERIENCE.
My purchases were sent home Saturday
evening and Sunday morning I came ont in
my full glory. I tried to imagine that I
was more comfortable than ever before in
my life, but the leglets would make their
presence felt. I was conscious of their ex
istence at all times, but determined if possi
ble to become accustomed to them. So I
practiced Christian science on them for a
lew days, but with no effect, they were
still unreasonable and just as anxious to lift
me off my feet as ever. Finally I became
disgusted and made a "savings bank" of
those garments that is, I have some $24
laid away in them which is liable to remain
there, for in the words of the poet, "they fit
However, the idea is all right and the
garments ditto, when properly made, but
profit by my experience, ladies, vou who
will desire to adopt the reformed dress, and
don't go to modistes who will charge fancy
prices, secure a good seamstress who will
come to the house, then have her under your
supervision, cut and make yonr garments
according to the Jenness Miller patterns
and your purse. Try the whole system. If
you don't want to abolish the corset entirely
wear the Jenness Miller waist, manufac
tured especially for just such people, and if
your verdict does -not agree with mine,
that you have never been comfort
able in your life be.'ore, you will be
an exception to the rule. In my
case it was the old "chestnut," one had the
experience and tbe other the money at the
beginning, and it was reversed at the end,
but I am so much improved in both health
and temper that I do not regret the experi
ence, and as far as wrapping the bones of the
festive whale around my body again and re
suming the abominable draperies and reeds
that made life a burden nothing would in
duce me to do so. Thorn e Branch:

Additional Evidence by MsiL &
Abont the middle of last May Miss LottisX
J. Forker, of 299 Arch street, Meadville, f
Pa., placed herself under treatment by mail
with Drs. Copeland & Blair. Her trouble
had so completely involved her whole sys
tem as to almost entirely deprive her of the
ability to perform her duties at home. In
stating her case by letter jnst previous to
the date above mentioned she complained
oi terrible headaches, followed by spells of
vomiting, which would compel her to lie in
bed for 24 hours, after which she would be
completely worn ont Sharp pain in the
breast, extending throngh to the shoulder
blades, and followed by others in her stom
ach and side.
On June 9 she wrote: "Your medicine is
doing me good, I do not feel so tired, and
my head has only ached twice, and that was
caused by a fresh cold I caught."
June 16 she wrote: "I am still improving.
Your treatment is doing me a great deal of
good." On June 23: "I am able to see
still further improvement." On July 2 hei
letter stated that she was feeling very well.
Angust 5 she wrote: "I have had but one head
