Tictor Hugo is said to have ex
posed his appearance at the French
academy on the occasion of Paillerou's

the ground that his suit of uniform

life it would be foolish to order an
other. A movement in England has for its
object the abolition of the action for
breach of promise. Such suits are
alleged to have become so numerous
that their influence is demoralizing,
and the justice obtained by the action
has become insignificant in com

Birth to a
Baltimobe, March 1. Laura La
varnie, one of the three tattooed wo
men in America, and well known to
museum frequenters, gave birth to a
boy yesterday morning in this city.
The child's skin bears the same
marks, or tattoed figures, as the
mother's. Not only are these figures
reproduced identically on the child's
epidermis, but they are in the same
colors as the marks on the mother's
body. The colors are blue and red.
The father, whose name is Adolph
Mareth, has lately been running a
small museum, showing in the coun
try towne of Maryland. He said yes
terday that sometime ago he went to
the husband of Dora Hildebrant t
get him to tattoo his wife. Dora is
the original tattooed woman and her
husband refused to tattoo any woman
who would prove an opposition to his
wife. Moreth then set to work him
self. He found it too great a job, and
as he was traveling he engaged men
in various places, commencing with
Cincinnati, to tattoo his wife. It
took several months to completely
tattoo the woman, and during this
time she was in a delicate condition.
Five weeks ago his wife was taken
ill in Cumberland. Md., and since that
time she has not been on exhibition.
The child is healthy and weighs
fifteen pounds. Dr. A. Trego Short
zer, a reputable and well known phys
ician in this city, attended Laura La
varnie, or Mrs. "Moreth, during her
confinement. The managers of a
dime museum in this city have en
gaged the tattooed mother and child
and will place both on exhibition in
this city as soon as the mother is able
to go out. The tattoo marks on both
mother and child are of various de
signs, representing snakes, animals,
flowers and symmetrical figures.

First Death in the Crenr d'AIcne Mine.
William Henry Allen was the firet
man to die at the new mines of the
Ccpur d'Alene. He was an old man,
a Scottish Mason of the thirty-second
degree, and much respected. He be
longed to the YtrbaBuena Lodge of
Perfection, Cal., and was also a
Knight Templar. He was born at
Montpelier, Vt, 1825, and died at
Eagle City, Idaho, 183 L At the time
of his death ho was carrying wood into
his cabin, and was observed to fall.
He was picked up, but life was found
to be extinct. His death was caused
by heart disease. He was buried with
all honors and has the distinction of
starting the graveyard at Eagle City.
"If I were a single man to-day,"
said James H. Hood, late'resident en

Kiver railroad, running from Wheel

is no country like it for making
money. Few Americans are there,
the country is nenness itself, tne
people honest and ignorant, and I
know of no country where a fortune
can be made so speedily."
