At any rate, she says that while unable
to call out she was consciqus that they
were driving rapidly and turning many
corners. When they stopped one of the
men drew her cloak up over her head
and tightly across her face, and the two
lifted her out and carried her into a
house, when they allowed the cloak to
fall off, and she was in f. richly furnished
room, where a table was spread with
wine and delicacies, as if for some en­

other, advancing to her, said : “Have
you received a number of letters this
Winter from a stranger?’’ “Yes,” she
had. “Well, I am the man who sent
them, and I am the man who will be

not like farced marriages, therefore you
must consent, and jvlien the minister

I give you your chance. Agree to

refuse, and you will never leave this
house alive. You shall have one hour
to think it over, and here is wine if you
wish refreshment. Do not waste your
time thinking about escape, for you are
bolted and barred in.” So saying, and
despite her piteous remonstrances, the
modern brigand left the room, locking
the door after him.
For some time the girl sat numb with
terror, and then summing up her ener­
gies, she rose and examined the room,
which was evidently the back ¡tailor of
a large house. The doors were securely
locked, and advancing to the windows
Miss W. tried one; it was nailed up.
The other was approached, and to her
ioy, she saw the lock on it was broken,
and gently opening it, found herself on
an iron balconv, some ten feet from the
ground, and with spikes across the top.
Hope and excitement gave her courage.
She drew out hei long, heavy cloak,
pushed a spike through one end of it,
and, though at the expense of sore
hands, climbed over the railing and let
herself down within a few feet of the
ground, which she lit on safely, and
away she ran, down a narrow alleyway
into the street, losing her wits in her
fright, and turning first one corner and
then another, until she saw a street car ;
this she haileil, and found, after getting
on, it was an Eighth avenue car, and
the lower part of the city. She rode up
this to Forty-second street, where she
got off and started on a run for home.
In passing the Rossmore Hotel, she met
one of the friends telegraphed to, and,
alarmed at her condition, he hailed a
carriage and took her home, and so
ended one of the most mysterious ab­
ductions ever made in New York. The
detectives have been looking for the
parties ever since, and several arrests
have been made; but Miss W., who
says she could identify her «abductors,
has failed to so far, and unluckily can­
not describe the house, as she had nc
view of it from the outside.
Wolves in Russia.
Their number in Eiropean Russia is
estimated at about 200,000 head; and it
scarcely need be said the havoc they
make every year is immense. Inform­
ation collected by the Imperial Statis­
tical Bureau shows that in the year
1873 the damage so caused in forty-five
governments of the Empire amounted in
value to 7,500,000 roubles, or about
£1,250,000 sterling. The losses are be­
lieved, too, to be vastly under estimated.
The value of live stock varies immensely
in different parts of Russia, and the of­
ficial estimate is said to have been based
on much too low an average per heal.
In one district of the government of
Perm it was reported that no damages
had been caused by wolves, although it
was a well known fact that over 3,000
head of reindeer belonging to the no­
mads had been destroyed by wolves in a
single night there. In this and in some
other instances there was an obvious de­
sire on the part of the peasants to con-
ctal the facts. The destruction is not
confined to cattle. In Kazan it is esti­
mated 11,000 head of geese are thus
carried off every year, and in Kaluga,
2,000 head.
Besides large numbers of
camels, horses, and ponies; 100,000 dogs
are thus destroyed every year by wolves.
In taking these figures into account, it
certainly does not appear an exaggerated
estimate that the value of the live stock
and domestic animals destroyed by
wolves in Russia exceeds 15,000,000
roubles every year; and if to this be
added the frightful destruction of rein­
deer belonging to the nomad tribes from
the same cause, the total becomes enor­
mously increased. The annual loss of
human life by wolves is about 150 of aF

Mrs. Lillie Devereux Blake wants
policewomen to be employed at the ¡K)-
lice station in New York, as they are in
Saxony. She bases her suggestion on
the fact that among the hundreds of wo­
men who are arrested many are crazy
or ill, and need other attention then the
policemen can render them. She would
have the policewomen strong, healthy
women, of good physique, and paid the
same as policemen.
