The mm that Thomas Nast has gone
to making political cartoons on the Pall
ilall Gazette in London canned a ripple
of astonishment wherever artists gather
hi this town. The career that he thus
brings to a clow in Amerioa has indeed
been a very remarkable one. About
Host's origin and early lite very little
bus been made public, bat It haa always
inn gossiped among the artiste that he
k partly Italian, German and Jewish,
mil tost before he came to America ha
was with Garibaldi in that patriot's
army. As an artist he first vent to work
for Frank Leslie in this city. The most
Important work he did tor him fcrsaid to
have been the Heenan -Savers fight in
England. Boon afterward he began work
upon Harper's Weekly. He did not at
ence develop the gift which made him
the most talked of artist and the most
powerful cartoonist in America. Bat
from tto first he mode cartoons and lit
tle else. They were not humorous at
tho start, but, the year being 1884, were
upon war subjects and wen patriotic
Toward the close of that year, when
McClellen was nominated for president
by the Democrats, Nast began his polit
ical work, which ended brilliantly in
1671, when he began his attacks on Wil
liam AL Tweed. Host of his work np
to and at that time was drawn with pen
or pencil directly npon the wooden
blocss which were to be carved ont into
wood cats afterward. He did a part of
his work with india ink "wash'' on the
v odd in the same way. He parted with
tiie Harpers later, owing, it was saidVto
difference of political opinion, bnt re
turned to The Weekly after a long ab
sence at a salary that was considered re
riarkable. Some said that he got (IS,
000 a year, and some said that tlw furore
was t 10,0(10. But ins star bad declined.
Keppler bad filled the field and with
merits that Jsast never bad. Keppter
had no limitations or fetters. He was
an absolute free lance, ids sense of hu
mor was broader and his power of satire
was keener. Moreover, he made artistio
pictures, enhanced by the use of gay col
ors. Jiast could not recover his old place
as the chief of our cartoonists. He had
made a great deal of money, but it was
said that he lost most of it He went
into a western mining venture and speo-
He took np newspaper work last of all,
but it was evident that in every field he
had been distanced by those who had,
the artistic faculty supplemented by ar-'
tistic training. Kast never had either, -He
drew very clumsily and crudely.
Er A he been able to keep pace with the
artssde progress of the country, or had
he stopped work in 1872, his fame would
have been splendid. During the closing
year of the war he was more detested in
the south than the most rabid abolition
ist in Boston, and in the same measure
he was idolised in the north. The Union
League clnb of this city gave him a pres
ent of plate for what he did to glorify
patriotism and the northern cause.
Wuen he forgot Tweed with Ms pencil,
it was reported that bis fife was threat
ened and that great bribes were offered
to him. Tweed was reported to have
aid that Kast'a pictures worried him
more than all that was written by his
, Air. Kast lived well in g pretty sub
urban home and had many warm friends
arouud him. His personal popularity
was very great all over thecountry. His
lecture trips, when he gave blackboard
talks all over the conn try, made him well
known in even the smaller cities, and
travelers say that today there is scarcely
a clubhouse between this city and the
Pacific coast wherein the visitor will not
tee Tiiomaa Kaat's bearded face drawn
by himself, framed and in a place of
honor. It was his ability to express a
popular sentiment in a picture that gave
Lim his vogue. Whether he can remodel
his mind to bit the English taste remains
to be aeon. Sew York Bun.

certainly not worth lees than 100,000.
The Tapling collection, in the British

that of Herr Ferrary and is said to be
worth 60,000. The raar of Russia haa
a fine collection, valued at about 30,

in Belgium and reached Eiuiiaiid some

A FAMOlS WOMAN MOONSHINER.
Taa Zhtaili or Motile BUllev. Oaa tlia ltMid
of a UMjmrata Oauf.
InforuiDtion baa n-aahed this city
through a southern detective that Mollis
Itiller, the woman moonshiner of Polk
aounty, Tenn., died a few days ago at
her home in the mountains,
Her operations at one time were car
ried on very extensively, and she was nt
the head of a gang which was involved
to more bloody fights with revenue offi
cers than any other organised in the
south. Her first experience was in the
mountains of Sevier county, where she
assisted her father, Sam Miller. Here
Deputy Marshal McPherson led a raid
under a gmde who had a grudge against
Miller. In an almost inaccessible gorge
the officers encountered the moonshiners.
' A bloody fight followed, and three of
the revenue men were killed, the others
retreating. It was noticed that a young
girl was one of the party, and it has al
ways been believed that she killed one
of the officers. Another raid was made
in which Miller was killed and his asso
ciates captured. About this time the
revenue officers received a box contain
ing the remains of the man who had in
formed npon the gang. There was noth
ing to indicate from whom it oaina. and
the box must have been carried by wag
on and left at the marshal's house.
The woman was not found, and it was
soon known that she had fled. In a few
months Polk county, which had always
furnished considerable illicit whisky,
became the headquarters of the moon
shiners throughout east Tennessee, and
raid followed raid until there was scarce
ly a cave on the Biawassee river that had
not been the scene of some bloody fight
between the moonshiners and revenne
It became known that this woman was
a leader, but she was never arrested but
once, and ttfen the proof was such that
she escaped with a light sentence. After
the Enoxville Southern railroad was
built the country became too easy of ac
cess, ana with the exception of an occa
sional petty offender the gang was bro
ken up. The woman moonshiner retired
to a small farm, where she remained un
disturbed, except at two or three times,
when she was taken to Chattanooga as a
witness, when she would collect her fees
and start on a walk over the mountains,
a distance of 60 miles, to her horns.
It ia supposed that the killing of three
revenne officer and four or five inform
ers can be charged to her directly, while
tne gang of winch she was a member,
could be held accountable for several
others, but it was never possible to prove
ti'.fse charges, and she died without ever
having been tried for them. Cincinnati
' ; AFRAID OF THE MINUET.
tht GalhtntiT of Senator DBbota Bfalua
. Htm U.o ltutt nt Pujuuakara,
Senator Dubois is frightfully annoyed
by a story which has gained currency in
the press throughout the country that
be wonld be one of the society men who
will sliartiy dance the minuet at a fash
ionable charity entertainment in this
city. It all originated in a little pleas
antry, but it will probably raise havoc
among the senator's mining constituency
in Idaho. The way the senator explains
it is as follows: He was at a dinner a
short time ago and was sitting next to
Mrs. Carlisle. ,
"Of course yon have beard of the
charity entertainment that we are get
ting np," said Mrs. Carlisle. "I was
just thinking you would cot a oharming
fignre in the minuet." i
Of course the rudimentary instincts of
gallantry and Mr. Dubois is a gallant
gentleman dictated a ready assent to
"Why, I should be charmed," said tha
senator, with one of his most witching
"The matter passed with that, and tha
senutor thought no more of it until a
number of ladies one day met him and
negan to leiicitate themselves npon tha
prospect of seeing him tread the stately
minuet. - .
The senator tried to laugh H off, but
