AND living happily at the age
Incidents in the Life of Mrs. Azubah F.
Ryder, of Orrington Centre, Me.—
She Comes of a Long-Lived Family
and Has Scores of Descendants.
From the Boston Globe.
An interesting centenarian, who has rela
tives and friends all over New England, is
Mrs. Azubah Freeman Ryder of Orrington

Mis. Azubah Freeman Ryder tv as bom in
Eastham, Mass., Jan. 5. 1784. Her parents,
Timothy Freeman, and Beruiah Nicker
son Freeman, arrived at Orrington Dec. 17,
1788. They came in a sailing vessel, on
which the cooking was done in a tire place.
They brought with them seven daughters
and three sons, the youngest child being the
subject of this sketch.
Mr. Freeman settled on the farm now
owned by Mr. Witham. He was one of the
first board of selectmen in Orrington, and
the find representative to the General Court
of Massachusetts from Orrington. He died
Sept. 11, 18118. TV hen Washington was
elected and assumed the duties of the first
President of the United States Miss Azubah
was a little girl, 5 years of age, playing in
the sunshine and learning to read, knit and
sew. When Washington died a memorial
sermon was delivered iu Orrington. A grave
had been dug and Miss Azubah was one of
the sixteen young ladies, each one 16
Years of age, representing the sixteen
States of the Union’ who walked around the
ojien grave, anil scattered flowers and sang
a hymn composed by a citizen of Orrington
lor the occasion. M iss Azubah was a suc
cessful school teacher before and sifter her
marriage. The building in which she taught
the young ideas of these days "how to
shoot” was called the Pine-top schoolhouse,
and stood in a pine forest on the land now
owned by Wallace T. Little and formerly
owned by John Pollard. She was married
to Samuel Ryder of Provincetown. Mass.,
in 1806. Her wedding outfit of linen,
cotton and woolen garments, bed clothes,
table linen and towels, and her wedding
dress of white linen, were all manu
factured by herself from the raw mam
rial. She manufactured the first suit
of new- clothes her husband hail after
their marriage. It was brown, dyed in the
wool, and fulled at the mill. He was very
proud of it.
Mi-s. Ryder united with the Methodist
Episcopal chureV. abou; 1811. The old
church which she attended was used for a
town house after the new church was
built, but was torn down some few years
ago. It stood on tae farm now owned bv
"VVarren N*-kerson. Ti e foundation is still
to be seen on the west side of the town
road. When tbj Methodist Episcopal
church at South Orrington was organized

war, Adams, carrying twenty-four guns
was deserted bv her crew at Hampden, Mr.
Ryder, who belonged to the militia, was sent
to row four of her officers in a five-handed
open boat to Boston. On the afternoon of
Sept. 3, Mi's. Ryder sat by the window sow

doorstep. Sh-, noticed soldiers passing by
in the distance and supposed them to be the
militia. Soon her sister Lydia called and

Detroit, Mich., Nov. 38. —The sign
“closed to take stock’’ was displayed in
front of the wholesale boot and shoe house
of W. D. Robinson & Cos. to-day. The
house had branched out extensively
iu the last year, and the expense of this ex
tension, in addition to a i>oor season and
slow collections brought on the crisis. Mr.
Robinson did not believe the firm would bo
forced to assign, and had no doubt that an
equitable adjustment would tie made
with the creditors, which will allow
them to continue business. The lia
bilities are variously estimated at from
#40,000 to SIOO,OOO. The assets are unknown,

A ROMANCE IN TOBACCO.
And a Curious Story of the Customs
New York, Nov. 36. —Business was over
on the Stock Exchange for the day and sev
eral active operators, whose names are un
known to the general public, were discus
sing in Delmonico’s the tenor of the mar
ket. What they said about stocks was of
no earthly consequence to themselves or
anybody else: for if they knew anything of
the subject with which they were ostensibly
familiar they were not giving it away.
When it came to tobacco and liquor, how
ever, they were frank and authoritative in
their opinions One of the group played a
cruel trick on his companions by inducing
them to smoke an all-tobacco cigarette of
the most exquisite flavor and then quietly
informing them that none of that kind
could be obtaiued in the city.
"Of course these were smuggled,” he
hastened to admit: “but that is not. the
most discouraging feature of the case. I
do not know how they can be imported.
There Is a pleasing romance suggested by
this tobacco. I never puff a blue cloud
from this cigarette without seeing a sad,
dark face of dazzling beauty smiling at me
with her brilliant eyes aglow.” * * *
An empty ale bottle happened to be the
most handy means of bringing this bit of
sentimentalism to an untimely end, and tne
speaker nearly swallowed his cigarette as
he tried vainly to save his hat front the
“It’s a good story, though, and I’m going
to tell it,” he exclaimed as he jammed his
hat into shape again. “Scene, Mexico:
time, a few years ago. A wealthy and aristo
cratic gentlemen had the ill-luck to lose his
fortune, and when he died from the effects
of his loss his widow found herself without
the means of living. She was young, hand
some and amiable, but she could not even
do plain sewing. Her pride excelled her
beauty, and rather than depend upon others
she would have committed suicide. There
was a little strip of laud saved from the
wreck of her husband’s fortune on which a
fine tobacco grew. The old gentleman had
been in the habit of growing his own
smoke, and none of the tobacco had ever
been sold. His friends knew the flavor of
that particular weed, however, and they ad
vised the widow to make cigarettes for pri
vate sale. Every Mexican woman ean roll
tobacco most divinely, and she accordingly
adopted the suggestion. She has supported
herself ever since and these are some of the
cigarettes she made. I bought them at the
rate of one Mexican dollar, or 75c. of our
money, for a package of 150.”
“But why cannot they be imported?”
asked an envious member of the group.
“Because she has a romantic idea that she
will utilize the means at her disposal only
for her own support, and will not let any
body ussist her in the work. The patronage
of Mexican residents is enough to keep her
as busy as possible, and she will not under
take to push her cigarettes into other mar
“And more than that,” said another
broker, “it would be exceedingly difficult to
import cigai-s unless we were in the busi
ness. The customs regulations are not only
severe but peculiar. You cannot import in
quantities less than 10,1X10. Timt is too
large an amount for a private individual to
acquire. I am reminded of an instauee
where ft prominent New York Democrat,
who had Wen in Mexico, was presented by
a friend he had made there with 2,OtX) fine
cigars for his own use. He did not try to
smuggle them, hut notified the customs offi
cers at El Rasa that he had dutiable articles
about him and wanted to know how much
lie should pay for the cigars. They would
not let him pay anything, not because the
cigars were evidently for his own use, but
because there were 2,0(X) of them. The
boxes were accordingly- seized. The New
Yorker came home anti wrote to the Treas-.
ury Department, where he >vas personally
and favorably known, requsting the priv
ilege of [laying duty on his 2,(K)J cigars an if
there were 10,000 of them. He explained
that they were a gift, and that he desired
for that reason alone to get them over the
border. After a delay of many days his let
ter was answered. It had been through the
circumlocution office, and decision was
fiuaily rendered that under the circum
stances, as a special favor to this, prominent
Democrat, be would be permitted to pay
duty on 1().(XH) cigars for the sake of re
ceiving 2,000. but it was not to be looked
upon as a precedent. So he finally got the
weeds at a cost for the gift considerably
higher than he would have had to pay for
the same number if he had bought them at
retail in this city.”
Then the brokers changed the subject for
one notably less dry and went home reflect
ing on the greatuoss of their native land.

BAD LUCK FOR LABOR PAPERS.
Some of the Reasons Why Two of them
New York, Nov. 36.—At the time of the
November election there were two daily
labor paiiers in New York, one of them
over a year old, the other but a few weeks
old. Both of them are dead. Three months
before the election John Sunn ton's Paper,
which had been supported for four years at
the expense of the editor, went out of exist
ence. Since 1870 there have been about a
dozen attempts to establish daily or weekly
labor papers in this city, but all of them
have cotne to grief. It is nearly fifty years
since the first organ of" workingmen’s rights”
appeared here, but it was rshort-nved,
though it had an excellent and able man for
its editor. Long afterward came the
Workingman's Advocate, which was
succeeded by the Labor Standard, and the
Toiler, and the Voice of Labor, and the
Labor l/nion and numerous others whose
very names are forgotten. The Truth (daily)
took the labor side five years ago, but it
feel into lwnkruptcy. The Telegraph (daily)
tried the same course three years ago, but
soon perished in the attempt, after sinking
$40,000, or about twice as much as was sunk
in John S win ton’s weekly. There have
lately been reports of new ventures here in
the line of the labor press, though the ex
periences of the past are not such as to give
encouragement to them. The losses by those
started within the past twenty years cannot
havo lieen less than SIOO,OOO.
The facts in the case are curious and not
easily explained. The labor organizations
here are very strong. IVitliin two years
the Knights of Labor alone in the city "have
numbered ovr 70,000 members,and if we add
to them the strength of tho trade unions not
connected with that order, it will give a
total of not, fewer than 100,000 organized
wage workers in New York City. Every
one who lias attended the meetings of any
of these bodies has heard the never ending
cry for the establishment ot "Labor papers ”
It lias looked as though the demand was
such as to admit of no denial; and yet all
the numerous attempts to supply it. during
many years, have been failures sometimes
of a very melancholy kind. Not one in a
hundred of the.rneinliers of the labor organ
izations of the city have ever subscribed for
any of the labor papers started in their be
half. whether these pajiei's were weeklies or
dailies, whether they were conducted with
ability or iucompctency, whether they were
eo-ojierative or personal, whether they stood
for the trades unions or tne Knights of
Labor, whether their policy followed any
given direction or drifted without direction.
In fact, the mere appearance of any labor
paper in New York has lieen the signal for
a general assault upon it by the leaders of
labor organizations, which continued with
out cessation till the day of destruction.
The Oldest Mule in the World
Lavxesville, Ky„ Nov. 38.—Stafford,
Va.. some days ago gave to the world the
story of a tnule said to be 51 years old. To
some this story seemed unreasonable, but to
the people of Floyd county who are ac
quainted with "Aunt Nancy Honaker and
the old mule,” there is nothing wonderful
in it. Mrs. Honaker gives her age as 73
years, and the mule, she says, and so do
numerous other old inhabitants here, is very
well known to have been a resident of this
State for sixty year*. He is
an importation from Virginia, and
may lie a brother of the Staf
ford tnule. No one knows how old he was
when he emigrated from the Old Dominion.
"The old mule” had considerable reputation
as a traveler before the war, having, it is
said, done service over several Stares, and
of his war history* many mysterious stories
are whispered about. But the days of the
old mule’s usefulness are not yet of the past,
as he j 7 et does goo 1 service in the buggy
and under the saddle, not being subjected
to menial service in the plow and wagon.
"The old mule” is to-day healthy and
hearty, and bids fair to live out the limit
fixed for man, if he has not already passed
the period of three score years and ten.

Mrs. Margaret Clark’s Advice to Lot
tery Players—She Won $16,020.
“Since you will buckle fortune on my back,
To bear her burden whe’r I will or no,
1 must have patience to endure the load.”
These meaning lines of Shakespeare came
vividly to the mind of the reporter of the
Picayune, who called Thursday noon at the
office of The Louisiana State Lottery Com
pany and wasintroduced to Margaret Breen,
wife of Thomas Clark.
The lady, who is a native of Ireland,
County Fermanagh, was accompanied by
her husliand. They held in their possession
one-tenth ticket number 71,411, which at
the last drawing of the lottery liecame enti
tled to the capital prize of $150,000.
It was in 1859 that the couple were mar
ried. They have lived happily together,
and have a family of six children, all of
whom are full grown. Clark, who has been
a boss slater by trade for thirty-one years,
pursued the duties of his calling, and Mrs.
Clark attended to the affairs of the house
hold. Both parents have been heavy play
ers in the lottery.
The husband, on the other hand, has also
been nn ardent player, and has only been
successful once, drawing a prize of $250.
Mrs. Clark’s advice to her husband has al
ways been: “Go calmly; you can’t win by

Clark stated that the ticket with which she
had just drawn the capital prize was the
tenth of the kind that she had ever pur
When the good woman was handed a
check for $15,000 on the New Orleans Na
tional Bank, she calmly took it, proceeded
to the bank and deposited it for her account.
Mr. and Mrs. Clark, who have hitherto
been in ordinary circumstances, say they
will continue working, but not trouble them
selves to any extent. They are, however,
proud of their success, but do not believe in
