brother-in-law of John Stetson, the
owner of several museums through the
country, and a bowery theater .in New
York, "has, with his wife, one of the
famous btokes sisters, disappeared from

and lapsed mortgages enough to keep an
accountant busy for a month to come.
He received his start in hia theatrical
career through marrying a sister of Mrs.
stetson, . and did an excellent business,
but poor investments in real estate and
seaside summer resort property . led to
his. heavy involvement, and when the
mortgage became due on his theater here
last week he . left the city for parts un
known, being followed Saturday by his

Cincinnati, May 5. The American
Citizens' Equal Rights Association,
composed of cofored men, held a conven

of resolutions, affirming their purpose to
secure the full and free exercise of every

They entered a protest against the efforts
of a few so-called leaders' of the- race, to
induce the administration to recognize
them to-the exclusion? of-thc more-gro-gressive
claBS, whose aim it is to work in
the interest of the whole people 'They
also -called the attention of the organiza

appointed to office mainly in the south,
where the only political service tne col
ored men can render is to send delegates
to the ' national conventions, and are
denied to those in the northern states,
whose votes are necessary to the success
of either party. James M. Townsend, of
Indiana, was "elected president. Among

Klgtity-seven Yeurs Old Who Can
Scarcely lie Told Apart .
St. Clonil, Minn.. Iioasts the oldest living
pair of twins in the country. Rosina and '
Crescentia. Sutterlee were born In Zell.
Baden, Germany, Feb. 23, 1804. Crescentiu
was married in 1835 to John Fritz, at their -home,
and in the year 1848, together with . ;
her husband and only son, Amlrew Fritz,
now a prosperous and highly respecti
citizen of St. t 'loud, immigrated to Amer .
ica and removed to Sandusky, O., whe:
they resided until 1857.
From there they went to Minnesota, 1
eating at St. Paul, and in 1861 removed t
their present .home, .which is still li.
home. Rosina, the other twin sister, wi
married to . l'Mward Sweth in 1831. Fi .
children were born to this couple, all .
whom have since died three in Germiu .. .
the other two in this country. Her hiis
band died in Germany, and as a widow 8l.
came to this country in 1S6S, residing witic
her son-in-law, Henry Koester, ever since. .
The parents of the two women both
reached the age of nearly ninety years, and
present indications would predict a longer
lifetime for the "twins than that of their
The resemblance in appearance of the -pair
is so great that many times intimate
frieuda, who have known them since their
residence here, have been deceived in their '
identity.-. Rosina . has often been mis
taken for her sister. At a time the latter
needed medical treatment and called in the -doctor,
who was a friend of her siBter,
"and when she became convalescent she
asked the doctor for her bill. He answered i
that on account of the many favors shown
in business relations he wouldn't charge a .
cent, not knowing that she was not the
sister he referred to. '
Upon one occasion John. Fritz, a. grand
son of Crescentia, who operates a photo
graph gallery here, induced the twin sisters
to minte a sitting for their photographs.
When the picture was finished and shown
to them they simultaneously spoke op, say
ing, "Whicli of tbe two am If"
The grandchildren of Crescentia, of
whom nine are living, have many times
failed to identify -their grandmother when
in company with her sister except by
their dress. They usually dressed alike.1
Rosina attends early mass in the Catholic
church every morning, and her sister, who
lives one and one-half: miles - from the
church, attends frequently during the sum
mer months, making the distance there
and back on foot. The memory of the two
aged Indies is good, especially that of Ro-i
. Crescentia about two years ago discarded
spectacles, which she had worn for many
years, and since reads the newspapers . and
her prayer, book without the aid of glasses.
un ongnt days she can see tbe chapel on
the so called Calvary Mount, nearly two
miles distant from her residence. The two
stand each aljout five feet four inches in
height and Cresceutja .weighs 235, while
Rosina only balances tbe scales at 233
pounds. They have both been widows for
many years, neither ' marrying after tbe
death of her first bnsband. Chicago Her

Forgery Made Easy.
Forgeries are encouraged by the bad
practices that have grown up in the com
mercial houses the use of stylographic
peus and aniline inks. Many large houses,
recognizing the lack of character in a sig
nature written with a stylographic pen,
have discarded them altogether in signing
checks and papers of similar importance,
and other firms require documents to be
signed with a steel or quill pen. A stlyo
graphic signature is easily imitated, and
when it comes to identifying the genuine
signature a difficulty is met, arising from
the effect of the movement on t he essential
characteristic features. Aniline inks are
still more dangerous, because they can be
copied exactly by tbe use of copying pads.
