WOMEN IN HYDE PARS.
How Somo of the Cutco.3t3 of London
Spend Their Livos.
Prom the Pull Mall Oozette.
During the summer months it was well
known to the authorities that a number of
young women night after night slept on tire
grass beneath the trees in Hyde Park. They
were principally young women, varying in
age from 18 to 30. Home remained during
the greater part of the day in the park;
others departed early, as if on business
bent. No one inquired what that business
v as, and they were allowed todejiart without
interruption. On wet, comfortless nigl ts the
attention of the police has been called to
these poor outcasts, but to all tho latter s
recommendations or persuasions of going to
a workhouse or casual ward they turned a
deaf ear, expressing their determination to
remain in the park and be “independent.”
As the law was not broken in any way, and
there was no public obstruction, tho police
authorities believed themselves to bo power
less, and the young women were allowed to
take then- night’s rest in secluded parts of
As winter advanced, however, the num
ber of these young women decreased, but at
the preseut time there are many girls who
have no homes, no money and no friends,
and through the cold days and piteous
nights take their only rest under the wide
canopy of heaven. A fortnight ago,
though the thermometer did not register a
very low degree of heat in the atmos
phere, the northerly winds were pierc
ingly cold, and on the damp green sward
of the park, in tho most sheltered posi
tion they could And, were several young
women seeking rest. Tho first we saw was
a young gill, apparently strong and
healthy. She appeared rather annoyed by
the intrusion, but, in- answer to inquiries,
said she had no home, no money, and was
half starved. “Why not go to the work
house?” “No, never,” she replied; and, in
answer to other que tions, said she had been
in good service, bad disgraced herself, and
could not get a character to enable her to
take another place. Her mother had mar
ried a second husband, they wore poor, and
could not give her shelter. She hoped to
get honest work, she did not know how
soon. The next two were sitting together,
one mending her boots, the other patching
some wearing apparel. They were clean,
tidy-looking women; both had beeu
in good situations as domestic ser
vants, and both had been abandoned
by soldiers. The one young woman was
only 18, the other 24. f rheir friends lived
at a distance, but they would never allow
their parents to know the degraded position
into which they had fallen. The elder one
had hopes of being taken at a “home;” if
not they would have to take her to a hos
pital, she said. She had been sixteen nights
on the grass, had caught a severe cold and
felt rheumatism flying about her, but the
hacking cough she had would seem to indi
cate a complaint more dangerous than
“rheumatism.” We visited the Hyde Park
police station. The inspector on duty mado
his appearance. He was very communi
cative and polite, and even sympathized
with tho sufferings of these women.
“But,” he said, “what are we to
do? The very three you have just seen
have been offered over and over again
tickets for the workhouse; I have reasoned
with them myself hail a dozen times dur
ing tho sixteen days they have been here.
The truth is, they prefer this life to having
any restraint put upon them. The fact is,
innocent as they appear, they leave here
when darkness sets in, and visit all the low
public houses, and return to the park in the
morning. ‘Compel them to seek a decent
shelter,’ you say. You must remember this
is a free country, and people stick up for
what they call their rights, and if I were to
turn them out of this park without their
doing anything contrary to law. I should
get a severe reprimand. So what are you
to do? We cannot help them who will'not
We next went to another portion of the
park, where, under a clump of trees and try
ing, as it were, to hide themselves from
human eyes, we saw two young women who
had made a bed of fallen leaves, which were
plentiful around that spot, ami had put their
beads under the shawls which they had
placed over them in order to keej) in tho
warmth. A lady was with us then and she
roused the poor girls, who* were only
17 and 19 years of age. They told her they
were orphans, and had maintained them
selves at machine work for twelvo months,
but first one was thrown out of employ
ment and then the other. They lived upon
the clothes they pledged for a time, and
then they were driven from their lodgings
because they could not pay the rent. They
had-only been in the park two nights, and
hoped to get some work in the morning, and
then they would be all right. They had two
pence to get bread in the morning, and they
wanted nothing else. Their story appeared
so truthful that our lady friend compassion
ated them and asked the girls to ac<-ompany
her, and she wouid find them lodging for
the night, to save them from catching cold,
and promised to look after them in the
morning. This they gladly accepted. They
obtained work, and a few days ago, lookin’-;
well and happy, called on the lady to thank
her lor kindnesses received.
Twilight hnd come on and night was ap
proaching, and without our lady friend we
*>uld proceed no further; but we were told
Home curious stories concerning somo of the
young women who take shelter in the park,
many of which were not very creditable to
tho individuals, though profligacy was not
even hinted at. A clever expedient was
resorted to by two girls during inclement
weather. They carried son e park chairs to
a large hollow tree, and, placing the chairs
and themselves within it, and covering the
opening with their old shawl*, they made
themselves comfortable for the night. In
this way they passed several nights until
one morning the policeman’s attention was
drawn to the spot, and they were forbidden
ro resort to the same stratagem in tho
Our visit to Hyde Park was in the third
week of October. Since that period the
northerly winds, the heavy rains and tno
occasional frosts have made their marks
upon the poor outcasts. Two have gone to
hospitals, one died, several havo departed no
one knows whither. Six poor creatures have,
however, taken up their positioas in the park
during the night throughout this inclement
weather. They may or may not lie deserv
ing characters, but they are committing
slow suicide by sleeping on the damp grass,
even though their bodies are sheltered from
the ram by improvised tents covered with
shawls, which are worn the next day.
The polioe authorities deem it unwise fel
ony person to aid or assist these homeless
women, as it would only increase the num
ber of vagrants who frequent the parks;
but as the Chief Commissioner of Police, iu
order to put down vagrancy, is taking steps
under tho vagrant act to arrest all rogues
and vagabonds throughout the metropolis
who are found wandering or sleeping in the
open air at night during tho cold weather,
why should not such a proceedingextond to
nyde Park, and thus oblige tho homeless
women to seek propel- shelter at night?
PERSECUTED FOR A WITCH.
The Experience of Old Anna Hiller
With Florian Mitzowsky.
From the Chicauo Tribune.
“The Witch of the White Stockings” is an
appellation that may be applied to Anna
Hiller, a stout and waddling old G 'rtnan
woman of about 50, living in a lo:u-si*|$
manner at No. 3155 Benson street. Justice
Eberhardt said yesterday that she claimed
to have been reviled and persecuted for a
sorcerer right here in Chicago. This is hor
story as told by the Justice:
“Next door to Mrs. Hiller lives the family
of Florian Mitzowsky. Florian has a 15-
year-old daughter—a pale, sickly, ernaeiatod
creature—who is a confirmed invalid. She
is also lame and cannot set her feet down
without a painful limp. Three different
doctors have attended her, but none have
Lien üblo to diugnose fler on e correctly. A
few days ago old Anna Hiller waddled over
to her neighbor's) to see the sick child and
brought a pretty pair of hand-knit white
rtockin as a present for the sufferer. She
stroked the maid with tender caresses, told
her she mu-t put on tho stockings, which
would help to make her well, performed somo
queer jugglery rubbing the patient’s mouth,
n ad astonished the family by stopping in her
incantations, peering weirdly out of her
bright eves at the sufferer, and exclaiming in
a sepulchral voice: ‘O, poor child! The doc
tors can't make you well! You must have i
another kind of doctor!’ Then old Anna
turned about and waddled back home. The
father was terribly wrought up over the
strange prophecy, and when he came home
from work the next night found his daugh
ter had been speaking all day like one in a
trance of old Anna Hiller and her white
stockings. Bho could not, it seemed, get
any rest, and to wear the stockings only
made her lamer and sicker. She seemed,
indeed, like one possessed. Florian ran
madly into the ‘witch’s’ house and accused
her of exercising a spell over his child.
Would she just stop over to the sick room
and see for herself the result of her evil
words? Yes, she said she would.
“Once inside of Florian’s house the whole
family gathered about old Anna with niut
terings and imputations of witchcraft and
sorcery. She must exorcise the evil spirit
in that child, or break the spell that bound
her, or they would wreak vengeance upon
her. Florian took up the broom, and hold
ing the stick horizontally across the room
by the bedside, commanded the alleged
witch to jump over it. Anna said she v. as
too old, hut Florian was inexorable. She
must do it or he would not answer for her
life. So, finding no excuse would avail,
Anna caught up her skirts and successfully
made the leap over the broomstick.
“The poor little girl continued to pine
away, and her people continued to heap im
precations on old Anna’s head. One day
this week Florian chanced to meet Anna in
the alley in the rear of his house and beat
her with a stick most mercilessly. Florian
was at last driven to desist by a sturdy
teamster who chanced to pass through the
alley. Mrs. Hiller had him arrested for
assault, and lie was fined 810 by me and put
under peace bonds for a year. The flue was
subsequently suspended. ”
Five Hundred Oysters in One Hour.
From Ihe Minneapolis Tribune.
Reporters, inspectors and night watch
man see some peculiar sights, many of
which are laughable, but there was a little
scene in the Coffee John oyster house, at
213 Nicollet., at an early hour Sunday
morning, which caused more laughter to the
square spectator than Sol Smith Russell or
any other combination yet produced. At
about 1:30 a. m., as “Coffee John,” the pro
prietor of the place, was finishing a hearty
meal including a large porterhouse steak, a
certain physician who is well-known as a
man-about town dropped in and as he wait
ed for his stew, the conversation drifted to
the subject of opening oysters. To the sur
prise of all present, including several local
sports, John proposed to eat 500 oysters in
two hours, and declared that he would back
the offer by risking $lO on his ability to get
away with that number. The money was
put up and quickly covered. A stakeholder
and a timekeeper were appointed and the
oysters eouuted. The oysters were to lio
opened and eaten in two hours, and when
the doctor saw the two large pails filled
with huge oysters in the shell, he felt very
pertain of going home with S2O in his inside
picket. The game was called at 1:48 with
half a dozen persons present. At about 2
o’clock a reporter and two or three others
dropped in. An attendant was allowed to
keep oysters constantly at hand, and the
eater proceeded to open and flip into his
mouth oyster after oyster until 125 had dis
appeared. Ho then took a recess and ate
not more than a dozen oysters until 3 o’clock,
the timo from 2:15 until 8 being occupied in
opening the remaining 125 in the first pail,
and steaming in the shell the full 250 con
tained in pail No. 2.
At 8 a. m. the stew containg 125 mature,
fullblown oysters being cooked, and the 250
being sufficiently steamed to open easily, the
two lots were bunched, making 375 oysters
on one large dish. In bulk they would have
measured something over three solid quarts
and were of several pounds weight.
As John seated himself to this meal it was
remarked by nearly all the spectators -‘that,
no live man could eat all those oysters;”
hut the wife of the oyster man, who until
now had looked nervous and worried as if
she was ready to run for a physician or call
the police at, a moment’s notice, now got her
courage and offered to make a little side bet
of $lO that her superior nine tenths would
eat tho oysters ami win his wager. Her
money was covered by tho stakeholder of
the first bet, and other bets were made in
the crowd. At 3:18 Coffee John took a sec
ond recess, this time taking a short walk in
the open air. There was a great deal of
banter and “chin” going as the programme
was carried out. On returning John opened
a fresh bottle of ale and began again. It
soon became evident that he was full, and,
with 250 oysters jet before him he ran his
finger down Ids throat with the usnal re
sult, and returned to the conquest. This
process he continued, filling and emptying
his stornaitli alternately while there were
repeated encores on tho emptying act. One
gentleman was so affected by it that he was
obliged to seek the restoring influence of a
breath of outside air. The excitement for
a time was considerable and the remarks
were many. No more bets were closed, and
at 8:85 Coffee John deposited oyster No.
500 with 13 minutes to spare. He was
cheered to as great an extent as the hour of
the night would permit, and the doctor de
clared that lie didn’t suppose it possible, and
that he should havj the oceui-ence placed
on record in the annals of medical experi
ence. The oyster man declared at the close
of the ordeal that lie felt as well as when
beginning. In the two hours he ate a largo
number of crackers, drank a considerable
quantity of strong coffee and disposed of
tln-ee botth sof ale, At 6 o’clock yesterday
afternoon he was seen by a reporter and
declared that he slept well during she night,
ale a hearty breakfast this morning, and ex
perienced no inconvenience from his ex
ploit. lie wants to close a bet of SI,OOO that
he can eat 1,000 oysters in four hours.
Secretary Lamar as a Journalist.
From the Philadelphia Feus.
It may be that Lamar's admiration for
newspapers arises from the fact that the
only failure of his life was with newspaper
work. Me (ells the story in a very laughable
way. Shortly after the war closed Sam
Thompson, the editor of the Oxford Falcon.
went to Lamar and asked him to furnish a
leading editorial for liis paper once a week.
T.ainai-thought the newspaper his spin re
and agreed. He had great ideas of re
forming the press: that, the press was a
power, and evidently thought that the La
mar editorial would turn Mississippi up
side down, and that in its new position it
would be nothing else but true, beautiful
He then commenced to grind out his
editorial by tho yard, and ho says:
•‘At first Victor come himself after my
manuscript. The second week or so he sent
a boy, and the third or fourth week I had
to send my manuscript down by messen

<J. C. Lamar would write editorials for the
Oxford Falcon, and I watched the ex
change- to see them copied. The papers did
not seem t-> care for my editorals and thev
would take up nasty little squibs, which
seemed to me then to be insignificant, writ

serious thoughts. I concluded after a time

and I rather think that Victor thought so
