The World's Rochester sjienal sai's: "Nearly even one; within twenty miles of lexundrr, (ienesce r-ouuty, ha-s heard, dur- ing the last few more or less concern- ing Miss Emily Harper and her wonderful and suddenly acquired strength. Physicians from every town in the county have been here to investigate and wise men from the East and every other direction have seen her and shaken their wise heads and departed without leaving any of their wisdom behind them. Small wonder that the wise men are uon-plusscd and the learned doctors puzzled, for over heard of u delicate young wom- an, for w hoin the of a kettle was a burden, suddenlj deu'lojiint; into a female Hercules' The delml.'d ai-countof .Miss Har- [Kir's case has not yet appeared in print, in spite of the excitement it has caused. "Miss Harper is a delicate-looking, though quite handsome young woman of 18 years and weighs about 110 pounds. One day about three months ago her mother noticed that Emily broke a great many household articles while handling them. She would grasp the slender stem of a goblet and it would break into pieces She would undertake to clean a lamp chimney and it would be shivered into fragments in her hands. Her mother sup- posed eaiclessness was the cause and re- proved her for it. Now the girl wag as yet uncons< ions of her newly acquired strength, the breaking of the articles being due to this lack of know ledge and the power to gauge and adapt her strength to her requirements. This in itself Mas the cause of quite a cal- amity, for as as her mother had ceased chiding her, Kmily threw her arms around her anil her a good hug, just to show that she bore no resentful feeling. Upon re- laxing her graip, Mrs. Harper fell to the floor with R moan of pain. An investigation disclosed the fact that two of her ribs were broken. "Mr. Harper was absent at the time of the occurrence, and upon his return questioned his daughter concvniing the accident. The Kirl anxious to justify herself, rushed up to her father with the exclamation: "This is all Idiil." Hue placed her arms about him and gave him an affectionate squeeze. Mr. Harper, in shaking of that embrace, said: "I WHS once hugged by a bear in the Maine woods; I have wrestled back-hold with some pretty strong men: but I never in my life re- ceived such a shaking up as that girl gave mo n hen she showed me all she did to ma Of r-oiir.se, these two hujcs made it plain that Mis.-, Hurper had suddenly become pos- sessed of remarkable strength, and in spite of the efforts oC the family to keep the matter quiet it soon became the talk of the town. The writer visited the family and witnessed some of the girl's feats of strength. She vastly duplicated all the ordinary acts of the stii'jp athletes, and Dr. Duvall of the New York of Anatomy, in company with Rob. rt Marsh of the New York Psycho- logic-d six'ietv, will lie here this week to see Miss Hurper :iml investigate her case; but it is doiihic'1 whether their explanation of the marvel uill be ol anymore value than the foity ant' one already given.

The Tories seem to have ant hurcd their on the budget, hoping by some financiering slcill to regalu the confidence which their policy fn other directions kwt them. It is, however, B forlorn hope. Club gnsMp has it that Mr. Akers-Douglas, the Tory whip, has resigned because of 8at> urday'h counting-out of tho house, which the government intenda to explain as of u Liberal plot.

U deals with tho Fenians, and bv-veral IrMi-American characters are introduced. A part of O'Brieii's book met with an acci- dent similar to the one that befell Carlyle's French revolution. O'Brien lost the first eight chapters, and at one time it seemed as if his health nuuld not allow him to rewrite them. He however, just now completed theimsMngpnit of the book. It is already in profess of translation into French and Italian.

If all other schemes fail they will turn the team over to the brotherhood and offer them free grounds. Detroit has on hand and a good team. Tho Hyde Turk Meeting. LONDON, March mass meeting in Hyde park, under the auspices of the various labor organizations, to protest against the treatment by the Russian government of I poHtk-al prisoners, was not so largely at- tended as Imd been expected.

After spending some time in St. Petersburg and also Taither uorth in Finland he iMscaino court dentist. A year or two ago the family came 1o America once more.

Turned Adrift. TOLEDO, O., March a bnskut ol victuals, and a railroad ticket to New York, SO-year-old Mrs. Helen Friedlandor alleges that her husband, Joseph M. Fried- lander, turned her from bis door. The papers in the- suit for absolute divorce and alimony which grow out of this alleged action were Hhul [Saturday. As the story goes Mr. Friedlander was married to his present wife on Jan. '.is, last, in New York city, the mar- riage having; been arranged through a matri- monial Hgeney. Mrs. Friedlander, who since that time has been compiled to remain in- doors, says she has been cruelly mistrcatud and on Feb. SiU was coerced after thirteen liourx of objection- on her part by Fried- lander's family to sign papers in which she agreed to a separation from her husband. Then, she alleges, she was turned out of doors. Twelve thousand dollars worth of Friedlander's property is tied up by an iu- junction, which was granted her Saturday by Judge Pugslpy.

A Suit for Over a Million SAN FRANCISCO, March suit of Charles llansen against H. B. Slavin, tl Faiiama canal drejgiug contractor, to re- Cover H.'JJO.UOO, began Saturday.

At lost they become BO urgent that they could no longer be Ignored. Living here at t ho National capital it was decided trfcall upon the senator and in congress from there new-born states of ours. As one result of the interviews then had, Senator L. H. Cassidyof North Dakota wrote to Uovernor John Miller, informing him of the inquiries of the Cross. Under date of Bismarck, Feb. 18, Governor Miller wrote t bunking the Red Crate for tbe kindly inter- est ovinced and stating that he bad referred the matter to Hon. H. T. Helgenwm, state commissioner of agriculture and labor, with instructions to give all particulars an to the wants of their people. Under date of Urnnd Portal, Feb. 21, Com- missioner HolgeiiHRn wroUt iu part an follows: "There are probably to people dependent and a good many more who have provisions for themselves, but need feed for stock. Considerable help has been received from St, Pun) aud aim from Chicago, and from several states east and south, but thus far only enough to tempor- arily relieve the needs of the destitute, and much more will have to be solicited from time to time." Commissioner Helgensnn accompanies his letter with n pnper which contains an appeal o the public, signed by the commissioner, u I'ollowh: "The suffering for want of provisions, fuel and feed for stock In several Bounties of North Dakota b unprecedented in the state and needs some explanation. The lestitutiou is almost exclusively confined to the newer portions of the state, where tbe date back only two, three and Itinr years, except Nelson and Kjitroiey coun- ties, which have been settled about six years. These new sell lementa were, like earlier set- tlements of most countries, composed largely f iKJOplu wliose resources would have been heavily Uixod to succeed aud keep themselves nliove want with favorable seasons." The story as told by tbe commissioner, is tlmt of all our new states. Hood seasons at first rewarded them: every acre was turned over for harvesUng in 1888. All well until August of that year whou a severe frost, u thing unknown before, killed the enlnggmiii. It did much damage on the older and bettor porl.ions of the state, but it entirely de-lniyed the newer sections. The nardy men did not lose their courage, but hired out to neighbors, thereby earning the money necessary for the seed and living of 1W.I. The unprecedented drouth of last year was doubtless most severely of anywhere in the West, in the fields and families of the newly settled portions of both North and South Dakota. As Commissioner Helgensen s n second entire failure in some sections tunny people completely destitute. He ,i hile near by the whole state sufferedfrom Iroulh, only seven or eight counties need nuch Hssistaiice. In this area are the coun- les w here the grcahwt amount of assistance needed, viz: Nelson, Ramsey, Benson, Tierce, Bottine.au, Rolette and Towner. Cnv- lier county will also need some help, as will vldy and Mclntosh, the latter in the south- ern {Kiriion of tbe state. In the counties named there are not less than people dependent, wholly or in part on outside help. until I hoy can raiso another crop, and a still larger numlx'r will need some assistamw for stock. Most of them have hay, but horses and oxen n ill not be able to work sufficiently lo get in the spring crops unless they have rain The supplies heretofore received are far from ineclinjr the demand, and are urgently needed. Tho counties are well organized, and supplies arc distributed through the county commissioner. "Thegrmterrarn is taken to prevent tbe improper use of t! -SB donations. AH con- tributions, whether money or provisions for ,'lothing, should be forwarded to said com- missioner nt and Forks where tbe proper division will be made." Commissioner Helgensen explains tbe con- dition of the sUite by showing that under Ite constitution, in taking; over property and debtB from the former territory, it nearly reached the legal maximum of debt tlmt may be incurred. It is therefore unable, as a state, to raise all tbe money ard moans neces- sary to supply the destitute.

There is no need with tbe excellent methods adopted by the state authorities for tho presence of the Red Cross on this field; but thereto a dutj before it. and before the people of the sister states as well.

Judging from pOMtexperiencesani) observa- tions it would appear to us wiser to send money that can be used on tbe ground under direction of the state officials assigned to that duty than to spend it for railroad freight in purchasing food or other articles of supplies, that may be better and more properly ob- tained with cash in the hands of those who know where it in most needed. In this way there will be a double help secured as the people will thereby aided to held them selves. The Red therefore, advisd that be sent direct to H.
