A Circus Queen's Melancholy story Greatest Female Rider of All Time Something', about Her Daring Feats on Barebacked Horse. New Orleans, July 11. There recently died in New Orleans the one time "queen of the circus. .Elizabeth Howard, who 4U years ago divided honors with Dan Rice.; In the old days Miss Howard ,:- was easily the most popular fenfale per former in the sawdust ring, but the last 20 years of her life were spent' selling: newspapers in ttte streets of the Southern city. Time was when Elizabeth How ard received $150 for 40 minutes work each night. And the success of the entire performance depended upon her whim as much as the sing ing of a grand opera does upon the humor of a prima donna. During ber life In New, Orleans "Old Miss Howard," ' as she was known to the news boys and street urchins, earned about - 60 cents a day, and to do this she was iorced to rise at 2 o'clock in the, morning, summer and winter.' and be at Newspaper row at 3 o'clock when the morning papers sent outheir city editions. yr it is said that Miss Howard ar rived in New Orleans about 20 years ago. One cold winter's morning a sweet-faced, white-haired old wo man was seen selling papers at the intersection of Customhouse . and Royal streets.: She had a rude lit tie table with uncertain legs. When it was time -to clew hcrti'shop" she asked permission of a nearby stores keeper to aliow her table to remain J- t; i over nigm in ou eetauiiHuuicuii. Then she trudged home to a bare, cheerless little room somewhere down town in the French quarter After awhile she , returned pass- ins the corner on- her ' way to the levee for a walk. She was followed by six dogs, her friends and com- nanions. This was the history of each of the last days of the old wo man's life. She never selected any other corner, and she was never ab sent from her little stand. She al ways went for her walk, accompan ied by a half dozen dogs. - Sometimes a change was noticed in the personnel of her canine body guard, some of them falling victims to age, accident or the dogcatcher, but there were always six of them. - There are times when the most cheerful and willing of souls will rebel at the idea of going out into the darkness of a bleak morning and etanding in the face of a stiff, icy wind that blows straight from the Gulf, but Miss Howard was al ways patient and gentle. While she rarely smiled, she bravely faced life and the changes it had for her, and when her work was done she folded ber arms and went away. . Misb Howard is held by many to have been the most dashing, the most daring circus woman the world ever knew. She was the first per son, man or ; woman, to tumble through paper hoops while her horse was going at a mad gallop She could perform on the horizontal bars, too, and as a dancer she rival ed Carmencita. She had a voice of richness and power. Miss Howard deserted the circus for a single season, when she starred in a comedy of the sort in which Lotta was successful. She achieved a triumph, her singing of "Long, Long Ago" being still fresh in the memory of many an old man. But the stage is not to her liking, and she soon returned to her old love. the night in which she reappeared under the big tent being an event to amusement seekers. It was in Pitts burg, and admirers from Cincinna ti and Detroit made pilgi images to the Pennsylvania city to give her a welcome. "Before the "grand entry" there was an accident in one of the dress ing rooms. A candle was overturn ed, and some flimsy gowns were soon ablaze. Dan Rice's little niece was sleeping on a pile of canvass trunks, and the flames had reached the child when Miss Howard went to the rescue. The "queen's" left hand was badly burned, but the lit tle one was unharmed. Miss Howard bowed to the big audience that night, "but she could not ride hei horse or leap in midair. She Sing "Long,,Long Ago" : , "Let me forget that so long have . you roved, Let me believe that vou love a8 you : lovea, long, ljng ago. , Mis Howard was once a society girl of Montgomery Alabama, and just before the civil war she visited Richmond, where she led the cotil- ion at the season's most notable af fair. It was during this visit to Richmond that she met a circus clown to whom she lost her heart. There is no record of her marriage to him, but at any rate the mem bers of her family, one of the oldest in Alabama, were sbosked the fol lowing year 10 learn that she had signed a contract with a circus man ager and bad begun what was to be a most notable career. She was forbidden ever to enter her home again. Miss Howard sold papers the day she died. The last morning she .spent on earth was bright and warm, one leu on selling papers about 10 o'clock and went to News paper Row to settle her weekly bills.. Then home, dinner for the dogs, a two hour "naoi" and her daily walk. As she was returning home she had a cotfghing spell and swooned. A hemorrhage followed, and she was taken into a dwelling at 730 Orleans street, where she died a few minutes later. Miss Howard had been a mem ber of a co-operative benevolent as sociation which assured its mem bers a Christian burial upon pay ment of 10 cents a week during life. She had neglected to pay the cur rent week's dues, and so the "queen of the circus" was laid to rest in Potter's field. Chicago Tribune. New York, Feb. 10. Whatever the result to the minds of Sir Lip ten and Designer Fife, there was nothing about the work of the Shamrock III, Monday, to cause Yankees to fear. The two Sham rocks sailed a thfrly-mife course in a breeze varying from eight to ten miles au hour, the challenger fin ishing in 3 hours 8 minutes and 20 "a"""B nwnu allow the bhamrock I ten minutes, the time would be reduced by that extent. But the test was calculated to bring out the top speed of any fore and aft rigged vessel. Ihe sailing was merely a broad reach out and a close reach home. Another "But" (and a bigger one) the Reliance covered a similar course, under as near the same conditions as it is possible to judge, in better than 10 minutes leas time. This does not mean that Reli ance, is ten minutes taster than Shamrock III exactly, but it is as significant as can be of their rela tive abilities. Yachts don t race by the clock- for cups Shamrcck III kicks up more fuss going through the water than her predecessor, and much more than the probable defender. It is at her bow she tumbles the water most, though her counter wave is .of not dispicable dimensions. And this in a smooth sea. Portland July it. In search of his eon, William, from whom he had received no message since last March, J. T. , Shepard arrived in Portland this morning from Mt Vernon, 111., and without waiting to register at a hotel', walked rap idly to the police station where he made anxious inquiry of Capt.Geitz macher. He was told that noth ing was known of his son. but if he would return in an hour, an offi cer would hi detailed to go with him, and aid him in the search. . Hardly had the hour elapsed, when the aged father walked into the station, and told the captain that he-Had located his boy. ''He is working in a cannery at Annita, Wash.' said the father. "I met a young fellow on the street, who told me where he is. Before I would believe him, I took him to the sheriffs office, where they knew him. They say that my son is -i:i4.i i i i u i . a . j .r.r. ' r .t r.

After the medium finished, it was quickly decided that the father should come West to seek the lost boy. . ALWAYS IN TERROR. THE UNSPEAKABLE TURKS IN DREAD OF BODILY ' HARM. His Hand Always Near a Ready? Revolver Often in His Fright He. Shoots Down an Un offending Attendant. Alwavs the Saltan carries a re volver hidden somewhere within, the folds of his rob as and when he is receiving anyone in audience his right hand is never far from the place where the revolver lies. With painful anxiety he watches the movements ot aayoae who is admitted to his presence. Living; in mortal fear of assassination, a brusque movement, a quick step, even a change of attitude, is enough to make him start in terror aud 10 send his right hand to hu revolver pocket and often overcome by sudden fear, he whips out his re volver and shoots some wholly ia-t offensive man or woman. . And once, when the Sultan was lying in bed, he summoned hia chamberlain, Raghip B y, in audi--ence. Leaning overtha bed to light a cigarette, at the Sultan's com mand, he happened to make a movement that sent his master in to paroxysms of fear. The Sultan imagined that his chamberlain meant to strangle him. Seizing his wrists the terrified mon arch held them fast until his wild shrieks brought the guards rushing; to his aid. t , Tbe greatest terror of Abnul . Hamid's life is darkness , and silence. The night is far spent before he ever retires to rest know ing that the penalty,. of sleep, is haunting dreams and terrifying nightmares. From the instant when twilight seta ia until the eun rises, all Yildia rrom tne smallest ronmn in thn im. perial kiosk to the futherest con fines of the great park, is brilliant ly illuminated with artificial lights that rival daylight. ' ' Before he can sleep a soothing voice must read to him to calm hia nerves. This duty usually falls to the lot of his foster-brother, Is met Bey a little, ugly man. bearing such a resemblance to bis sovereign that he is supposed often to imper-v Eooate him on state occasions. Lulled at last to sleep by the music of the band, the tramping of guard's feet and the croning voica of the reader, the Sultan passes a few moment of unconsciousness, only to wake with a start from a terrifying dream, aud hastily sum mon some trusty counsellor who will banish the vague terrors that haunt his uneasy mind, or to call his soothsayer to his bedside to give the interpretation of his dream. Thus, with slumber, broken ; by horrible dreams, from .which ha starts shiieking in terror, the Sul tan passes the night watches until daylight comes again. Washington. July 11.
