TN the Potter's field outside 
the ploouiy v.nlls i f the Asyliun for 
the Criminally InGune at Mutteivan, 
N. Y., there is a lieadpiece which 
bears the n'luiber “SS” — and, back of i 
this simple Inscription, Is a story of , 
Identity concealed even In the face of | 
the law’s most dotcnuineil efTorls \ 
which makes fiction ap’.HW.r i ale and i 
commonplace hy comiiaris; n. ' 

All that is known of the early his- ' 
tory of "Mrs. Henrietta Robinson,” the | 
palpably arsumed name of the 5vonmn | 
whose body rests beneath the num- 
bered headstone at Mattewan, Is that | 
she was of either English or Canadian ’ 
origin and that she came to Troy, N. i 
y.. In 18." 1, heing always well sup- | 
plied with funds from a source which I 
n'lnalned concealed even during the [ 
rigid Investigation which followed her ; 
an-est on tho charge or murder. | 

Some months after “ilr;5. Roliinson" i 
settleil In Troy a strange and appar- ' 
ently Inexplieahle tragedy occurred. | 
A merchant and a young woman who I 
was living nltli his family dropped I 
1 (lead at the table. A post-mortem ex- j 
aininatlon showed that they had been i 
. poisoned and, despite the absence of | 

I motive, "Mrs. Robinson,’’ who had I 
been present, was arrested, but n"- ' 
fused to say a tvord even to her law- | 
yer. j 

To add to the air of mystery which 
surrounded the entire case, the de- | 

' fondant insisted upon api enrliig In 
Court shrouded In a heavy black veil 
which elTcctiially concealed her fea- 
tures. All during the trial she sat. 
Impassive and unmoved, apparently 
taking not the slightest Interest In the 
conduct of the proceedings. When the 
i state had concluded its case, a com- 
paratively flimsy structure of clrcum- 
' stantial evidence, the counsel for the ' 
defense arose and, admitting that he ' 

; had not a shred of direct evidence to J 
I offer. Introduced the plea of insanity, i 
i At the conclusion of the trial and ' 

I before delivering his charge to the ; 
Jury, the presiding Judge called atten- ' 
tion to the fact that no one fn the 
court had seen the defendant’s face ' 
and requested ‘‘Mrs. Robinson” to lift ! 
her veil. 

Slowly, and with great dignity she | 
arose, but made no effort to comply j 
I with the court’s request. i 

“I am here,” she stated. In a voice j 
ivhlch penetrated td every comer of | 
\ the crowded courtroom, "to undergo 
a most painful ordeal, not to be ■ 
gazed at.” | 

i The request was not repeated and, ' 
after a deliberation of several hours, I 
the Jury returned a verdict of | 
I -“Guilty” and the jirlsoner was sen- I 
teneed to death — a decree which was ; 
I later commuted to life imprisonment j 
by order of tlie' governor, tliough not | 
j before “Mrs. Robinson” had made her i 
i one formal statement In tlie shadow \ 
: of the gallows; 

‘When I uiu dead,” she declared, 

[ "nil will die wP*.-.!..- l h 
' Ised to be silent, to die without be- 
I trayiug auytliliig.” 

Tlie first 18 years of her life sen- i 
I fence were passed in Sing Sing peni- | 
j tentiarj'. She was tlieii moved to the \ 
i Auburn State Trisoii for the Insane, ! 
I where slie reinaliied for 17 years, and : 
\ finally to the Asylum of tiie CriminaUy 
I Insane at Mattewan, where tlie woman , 
j of mystery finally died on May 4. lSX)r , 

■ -sfter 52 years in iirlson. During all 
i tills time, however, slie never wrote a 
I letter nor spoke a word, save to lier 
I lawyer who visited her at regular in- 
! tervals and who admitted Unit his 
; services liad licen paid for liy “certain 
I iullueiitial personages” wlioiu he was 
1 not at lilierty to name. ^ 

I All tliat was known of "Henrietta 
I Robinson” was that slie played the i 
i organ at Sing Sing with llio touch of.. 

a master musician and that she died 
' as she had lived — in silence, utter and 
absolute,' leaving as a lierltagc some ' 
of the most puzzling questions in the 
history of criminal : 

What was the woman’s real name 
and where had she come from? 

Had ahe poisoned tlie merchant and 
i hla young guest and. If so, ivith what 
motive? ' 

Why had she insisted uium conceal- ^ 
Ing her face during the trial? 

If slie were innocent, wliy did she | 
refuse for more than lialf a century 
to make any plea for leniency? 

What did she mean by lier state- ' 
ment tliat slie “iiad promi.sed to be 
silent, to die without betraying any- ■ 
: thing?” j 

Wlio supplied the funds with which 
j the lawyer was paid? j 

' The answers to these and as many i 
more unsolveil riddles connected with ' 
' this woman of mystery lie concealed 
beneath that simple headpiece in tlie 
Potter’s field at Mattewan, a head- 
stone bearing only the number “88.”

I have been much Impressed with 
the campaign conducted by numerous 
Kentucky newspapers demanding that 
n business man only should be nom- 
inated for Governor. I am In sympa- 
thy with this movement. I have wait- 
ed for weeks for some outstanding 
Democrat and business man to an- 
nounce his candidacy. In fact, I have 
on numerous eccasions talked with 
one of the most successful business 
men and one of the fnost loyal Demo- 
crats in the State, urging him to run 
for the Den'ocratlc nomination for 
Governor, and offered my support in 
case he should make the ra -e. 1'his 
gentleman declined to enter the race. 

Many active Democratic men and 
women in all sections of the State 
have asked me to stand for the Demo- 
cratic nomination for Governor. I 
have decided to announce as a can- 

Tlie fact th. 1 t I own and operate 
several farm.s In Scott and Fayette 
Counties I believe entitles me to be 
classed as a business man. If I do 
not come under the classification of 
a business man, then the newspapers 
demanding a business man for Gov- 
ernor have shut out of political con- 
sideration every farmer in the State. 
The farmer of today is as much i 
business man as the merchant, broker, 
banker or manufacturer. The great 
majority of the business men of Ken- 

didates themselves gild I consider li 
proper in my announcement to very 
briefly state some of the leading Is- 
sues which are of Interest to the citi- 
zens of Kentucky. In announcing my- 
self ns a candidate for the Democratic 
nomination for Governor, I wish lo 
emphasize the fart that I consider 
the Governorship of our St.lte the 
highest honor which can be given a 
Kentuckian, and I plerlge myself to 
the people of Kentucky that it 
elected Governor, under no circum- 
stances would I S(‘ek the Senntorship 
or any other office but would till out 
the term completely for which I was 
electerl. No man in the Governor’s 
chair can give the State his best ser- 
vice when lie ha.c his eye on some fu- 
ture prditical preferment. 

I favor a l*rlmary Klection to deter- 
mine the nomination of the Demo- 
cratic candidate for the Governorship. 
I believe it would be political suieiJe 
for our P.irty to make the nomination 
.in an.v other way. Only in a Primary 
Klection can the women voters of tlie 
State give full expression to their pis 
litical opinions. 

I think the greatest service a pub- 
lic otlicer can render the State at tills 
time Is to attend strictly to tlie busi- 
ness of the State and to leave it to 
the business men to handle their own 
business and to the people to regulate 
their own affairs, so long as they do 
not violate our present laws. To make 
It still plainer, I think we have enough 

“Anything to wear” will be tba 
motto of these three Kuasian boys 
during the coming winter monthg. 
Their condition la typical of that of 
mlillona of little Russian children, 
moat of whom have come through 
the summer without shoes and sel- 
dom with mere than two garments. 
And they face the prospect. — no- 
cording to reports which field work- 
ers of the American Relief Admin- 
istration have made to Herbert 
Hoover, head of the organization — 
of being unable to go out doors to

The Russian winter ia aa Mvere aa 
that gf the northernmost United 
States and Canada, and this has 
made the problem doubly pressing, 
for the Russian markets have little 
elotblng available, and the supply 
that ia far sale la held at prices far 
above the reach of the average 
workingman. Overcoats cost more 
than a year's salary. Seme of the 
organizations allied with the Amer- 
ican Relief Administration have 
sent clothing for distribution in 
Russia, but these contributions, big 
as they are, have been "only a drop 
in the bucket”.

American Relief Administration has

Kvidently the emperor of Austria never 
placed full ere lenee In the story of 
Ills death, for In Francis .lospph's will 
was a clause to the effect that the 
archduke's estate of some $1O.O(sl.O00 
was to he held Intact until something 
ilefinite was learned about his fale — a 
noint niion which the memolra of the 
'ormer kaiser may eventually throw 
.some light. Until this the m.vstery of 
the lost grand duke mnat remain as 
■•ne of tlie unsolved riddles of history. 

teiieky are farmers, and living one of 
them I Itelieve I know their trials and 
hardships, and that if I nm eleeteil 
Governor I can be of service to thpm 
and to the State aa a whole, because 
s'tien the farmer prospers all Hues of 
btisinesa share In that prosperity. 

The chief problems to be solved in 
Kentucky are In the main of an agri- 
cultural nature, ami Kentucky has not 
had :i farmer Governor for almost 
forty years. ’ The Governor of the 
State can personally attend to but a 
small part of the State’s business. 
Most of the business of the State Is 
aetiially transaeted by those whom the 
Goi ernor appoints under the laws 
pa«aed by the I.«gialature. Tlie busl- 
nc** of organization Is the chief duty 
of ri e Governor, and it is absolutely 
necessary for tlie welfare of the Slate 
th.-'t the Governor work in liarmony 
wli’i the State I.eglslature and the or- 
ganizations of rhe various State De- 

I I r(“cent years I have been charged 
witli tlie duty of getting thousands of 
men and women into compact work- 
in: organizations, both in a political 
anil in a business wa.v. In 1910 I was 
Slate Chalnniin of the Democratic 
Cai'ip.iign Committee in Kentucky 
which rolled up a majority of nearly 
thi.-ty thousand for the Democratic 
ticket, and In that organization there 
were ten thousand ui'tive men ami 
women In the State. For tliree years 
I viis State President of the Society 
of iapilty with its thousand   of farm- 
er members, and tliis was llie o.-gan- 
Iz.'itinn wliicli was one of the pion *er 
nioveiaents teaching cooperation 
niiving the farmers. Years ago tliis 
organization did the work which is 
now iH-'ng carried on on a larger acale 
b.v several splendid Farmers’ Organ- 
ization.* of today. 

I mention these matters simply to 
allow that I have had experience on a 
large scale along organization lines, 
which make up in part the duties of 
the Governor. To properly organKe 
the miiB.v branches of the State Oov- 
ernmi-nt is a jo!» riainlring experience 
In organiz.-iiion work. 1 am convinced 
that llio voters of the State are more 
Interosto.i in the platform* that the 
candidates stand for than in the can- 

Food Remittance. For twenty dol- 
lars. sent to the A. R. A. at 41 
Broadway, New York, the following 
articles, or their equivalent In val- 
ue, will be delivered to any desig- 
nated person in Russia: 4 3-S yard! 
flfty-slx inch twenty ounce dark

two inch black cotton lining; g

large black Ivory buttons; IS small 
black Ivory buttons; IS small whita 
bone buttons: 3 spools No. 30 black 
cotton thread: 3 spools No. 40 white 
cotton thread. 

One package win elothe one adult 
or two children all winter, and re. 
mittaaces ordered for general relief 
will be used for neediest cases; 
thousands of which ars heart-break- 

Russian winter. And the need of 
aid In this direction for adults, too, 
is indicated by statements of re- 
cently-returned workers, who state 
that in cases where Russian em- 
ployes have been given a blanket 
for extra services the blankets have 
almost Invariably been made into 
overcoats. Literally millions of 
children, say reports, have no shoes 
— an Item which In itself may make 
It impossible for them to go to Am- 
erican Relief child-feeding kitch- 
ens Free shoes and stockings have 
been provld|^ for 350,000 children 
who are aBOklutely without foot- 
wear, but the whole problem Is 
beyond the reach of any general 
funds now available. 

The American Relief Administra- 
tion, to meet this emergency, has 
put Into effect a Clothing Remit- 
tance, functioning in every wmy as 
does the now world famous Hoover 

"If Russia's ehirdren, and adults 
as well, are to be saved from death 
this winter from exposure — after 
the charity of America has brought 
them through the famine of last 
winter, they must be supplied with 
clothing." This is a concensus of 
opinion of the American Relief Ad- 
ministration staff in Russia, from 
Colonel Haskell down to the in- 
spectors, according to their reports 
to Herbert Hoover, head of the 
A. R. 'a. V 

From every part of Russia where 
the A. R. A. has been feeding 
children and adults, and has been 
Instituting saaitation and medical 
service and Inoculations to save 
literally millions of lives, the story 
is the same — that the children lack 
even the barest essentials of under- 
wear, shoes, stockings or outer 
wear, with which to protect them- 
selves against ths rigors of the 

Holland’s Way. 

In several places the rivers in Hoi 
land ninlie tlielr entrnn -es to the sen 
over extensive sand-beds, the water 
'(Cliig so shallow that large ve.sscl.s 
cannot sail In It. Rather than remove 
the sand-hetls. which were looketl upon 
In olden times ns a defense, since they 
Mien kept men-of-wnr at a tllstan -c 
the Dutch adopt the plan of aending 
out two large flat-bottomed craft to 
the amnll trading vessela that wish 
lo ciitor the harbor. Arrived on 
either side the ship, three pontoons 
as they may be called are partially 
Slink by admitting water, and when 
their sloping sides are well innler the 
hull of the* ship to he carrietl. the 
water Is pumped out. and they rise 
hnoyantly with their burdens between 
them. Across the shallows thc.v vhen 
hear It In triumph, nnd lower it gently 
Into the deeper water of the haihor. 
With equal care the return journej 
Is made when the mmhanlrann Is 
ready to sail away.
