French Countess Masqueraded So She Gould Handle Fliers. Cincinnati Newspaper BndoMen For Presidency. Hint Big Cincinnati, O., Dec. 14.--The En* qulfer has come out In a double-leaded _ , . - _ . . T I » .. editorial i n favor o f Richard Olney as, FOnd Of Daring FeatS Of Democratic candidate' for the presK Horsemanship. dency. , · «i "He represents so completely the Paris, Dec. 14.--The Countess Diane Ogir D'lvry, the beautiful young daughter of Count Ogir D'lvry, died in a hospital here under remarkable circumstances. Last evening a pony cart driven by a handsomely dressed young man accompanied by" a groom collided with a heavy vehicle near the Avenue Dubois du Boulogne. The occupants of the pony cart were thrown out and the groom was slightly and the young man dangerously injured. The latter was removed to a hospital, and the doctors were preparing for an operation when they found the injured person tO;be a woman. She was removed to the fe- maJe ward and was identified -as the daughter of Count Ogir D'lvry. A medical examination disclosed that her skull was fractured in three places and sha died soon after. The countess was 20 years of age and her blond hair was cut short It is explained that she was In the habit of assuming male attire to avoid attracting the attention of men. The D'lvry family Is highly connected. The count is a retired army officer and the author of a number of poetical works, including "Rhymes of Cape and Sword." A member of the family's entourage says the countess was fond of daring feats of horsemanship and liked to drive tallyho drags and four-in-hands. She found that male dress attracted less attention while driving, and when thus attired was one of the most daring drivers on the avenues. The family has a chateau at Xerac, in the department of Lot et Garonne, where the peasants were familiar with the coun- tegs' strange costumes feats. and daring general line of ideas and policies f ov / which Mr. Cleveland stands,' and Jie possesses so entirely the confidence of the same conservative class which has hoped to see Mr. Cleveland again,, in the field that every one "who would vote 1 for Mr. Cleveland would vote for Jfr.' Olney," says the Enquirer. "It is safe to say that Mr. Olaey would secure numerous votes which must be lost to Mr. Cleveland. We must remember in the same connection that he could doubtless hold the Bryan wing, avoiding a serious split, which the indications are Mr. Cleveland would be unable to do. "Should the convention in its wisdom present the name of Richard Olney to the electorate, wa may expect it to evoke 1 a wave of enthusiasm which will carry him to the White House."

Hi CoBtiu, trainmaster for th,e'east eiidf of the St. Louis division ot tho; Big Four, were movsd from Mattoon, Ills., to Terre Haute Monday. At the same time flve train dispatchers and ona car distributor also came here from Mat- ·toon, making a total oS seven men.

The change Will i have practically no effect on ttie oWces at Mattoon, where G. M. French, trainmaster, of the west enj, and Chief Train Dispatcher Hayes will still have their · headquarters.

I'ruuerfy of Charles Mnrklon May Escheat to DeWItt County. A petition has been filed In the county court to appoint J. H. Barker administrator of estate of the late Chas. T. Marklpn, the aged carpenter of Midland City, Says the Clinton Public. Mr. Mark- Ion was on e of th» most peculiar men ever in DeWitt county. About twenty- flva years ago, just after the "Vandalla line was completed, Marklon dropped oft the train at Midlanji one day, got a job and went to work carpentering. No one knew who he 1 was, where he had come from, nor how much money ha had, 1C any. Years went on and. Marklon was hard-working, frugal and saving. He put ibis money into Midland town lots and built houses on, trfem lilmself during idle months. He would rent or sell as seemed best. Several months ago he became ill. He was urged by friends (hs haJ made many) in. Midland to notify hia. folks, or tell where he'had come from and who he was, and at last to makd a will. .He refused to ao any o£ these things, 'and died leaving 11,300 in cash In the state bank in Clinton and Midland- property of over J1.500 value. This property belongs to no one as matters now stand, and unless some one appears who can claim a relationship, the money ana property will probably escheat to the county of DeWitt. in the modern home Being always rcidy to cook at the striking" of a match it is a "life ·aver" when you have ovenlept or are in a hunry .from.other causes.

This is Third Baseman Pattison. who will be used for trading purposes, according to a Rockford paper. The report does not say where he will g». The report that Denver is a'gain to have the services of "Tacks" Latimer wag well received by the fans, says the Denver Times. "Tacks'," who at times did brilliant work, spoiled all by his great fault of stopping to argue the different plays as they came up. He caught here with his hands so sore that he could not close them, and consequently his work was poor. This caused his release, "Take him, however, and catch him iu his turn he will do as good work for the local team as any other catcher they secure," said a base ball man.
