Sterling French Died Jan. 6 and Left Consid- erable Money. Chicago, Jan, a score ot years, JIary E. Sterling French, aged recluse, lived In the attic of her boarded-up and tumbledown house on Park Ridge, a suburb, where residents told stories of seeing a ghost, clad as a bride, moving about with a lighted candle. She left and entered by a ladder, drawing it up after her. She died Jan. 6. leaving three wills of clashing provisions, safety deposit boxes in which In securities have been found, tax receipts for property In Massachusetts and papers Indicating she may have possessed a fortune. Police Will Investigate, Weirdest of her legacies were two grave-like mounds, each marked with a stick with a teacup over the end, in the hack yard. The police will dig into these, hoping to find something to shed light on the disappearance of her husband 19 years ago. It was after he left that she had the iiouse, in which she lived years, boarded up. The rooms downstairs were left exactly as thev had been 20 years ago. The etory of Mrs. French, long the mystery of Park Ridge, was told, as far as he knew it, by Bid- ward Oetronski, an attorney, and printed in a copyrighted story in the Hwald and Examiner today.

Ostronskl said Mrs. French asked him to draw up a will for her last Dec. 22. But when the safety deposit box was opened, two others were found, one drawn In 1887. They willed the estate to Mary B. French, who, the police said, was Mrs. French's foster mother who died fourteen years ago. An explanation ot tho ghost which frightened people away from the house, Ostronski said he found in a dressmaker's form on the second floor. A dress was draped about it and a bunch of white cloth formed a head. Mrs. French would set it on a chair near a window and place a light be- side it, he explained. LIFE IS SLOWLY EYfllNG FROM CARDINAL MERCIER Brussels, Jan. life slowly ebbing and calmly awaiting ths end, Cardinal Mercier still re- tains the spirit to do which gave him world-wide fame when the Germans invaded Belgium and throughout the World war. The aged prelate Is seeking to bring about a union of the Roman and Anglican churches, a tnsk he has been engaged in 'and praying for since the end of the war. Yesterday despite the contrary desires ot his, physicians, the cardinal discussed during a goodly portion of the after- noon with Abbe Portal, a missionary priest of Paris, the prospects for the success of the union. When awake the primate either is in deep reflec- tion or in prayer. Yesterday, the Mother Superior of the hospital of- feied the patient a cup of bouillon. Smilingly the cardinal thanked her but declined to accept, saying he flrst must finish saying his rosary. The cardinal passed a. good night and his genera] condition this morning was unchanged. The physicians and members of his en- tourage again expressed astonishment at the stout resistance the aged pre- late is offering to his illl'.ess. Throughout Belgium masse? are be- ing said frequently and prayers of- fered that he may he restored to health. Dr. Hans Luther Will Head New Reichstag Govern- ment as Chancellor.

Von Hmdenbunr summoned a dozen Helchstag leaders to the executive mansion yesterday and told them that partisan chlckanery and political barter must cease. He intimated plainly that the situation required either the setting up of a dictator- ship of the formation of a parliamen- tary government. "These sorry exhibitions of peren- nial government crisis must cease, as the condition of the Fatherland more than ever demands constructive he told them. Three hours after the political leaders had retired from the resi- dence of the president, Dr. Luther made public the personnel ot a cab- inet which will be put before the Reichstag tomorrow. 3 Former Premiers.

In President von Hindenburg's first encounter with practical politics, he is declared by one of the parliamen- tarians present at the conference in the German white house u> have "talked to us like a Dutch uncle." The new ministry will confront a hostile Reichstag, BS it commands only 171 of the 493 votes. It Is con- sidered therefore that it will alter- nately seek the indulgence of the powerful German nationalists and socialist groups. It will pledge it- self to strict fulfillment of Germany's obligations as laid down in the Dawes plan and adhesion to tho for- eign policies prescribed in the Lo- carno treaties.

Menoher, then chief of the army air service. It read in part: "Military forces can never be effi- ciently trained or operafd without an air force.

Back on New Year's eve, when the rest of the world was making merry, Lily Olson, a Minneapolis valf, at- tempted self destruction, because she lost her faith in her poetic gen- ius and was friendless and alone in the world.
