brother, which necessitated UieHireSeuce
of the supposed Geiman nobleman, and
tho party broke up.
Tbo next morning Mr. Klccewskl
made his nppeaianco attired iu u
donblc-brcastcd sackscoat suit of licit
material, and joined his now-found
friends in a sumptuous bicakfaxt, after
which the party Btrollcd down Chest
nut sheet. At dinner the courier np
penied In an enthely different dress and
carried n highly polished ebony cano
with n coronet and his Initials engraved
upon It. Ho was driven about the
fashionable pat ts of tho city and le
celvcd invitations g.aloro to dine at
noted clubs. IIo had a high old time
generally tvilh the boys nnd enjoyed
himself to his heart's content.
On Thursday evening last, while his
master was enjoying the wit and wis
dom of tho Clover Club, Courier
Kleczcwski stiolled about the hotel,
whero his identity was again mistaken
for that of his master, lie was tigatcd
with tho'Utmost rcspect and to 'an un
limited nmountorcbampoguo, much to
the amusement of tho attaches of the
hotel, who enjoyed the delusion Im
mensely. Tho final ovation paid the
supposed count was at .a farewell dinner
given htm lastSatuiday night by bis
While thus pleasantly engaged bis
master received an unexpected message
through the Foreign Office to leport at
Washington on impoitant business.
IIo called for his courier to get his
trunks i c.ady, but .Klccswski could not
bo found, and the angry Count was
compelled to wail until 3 o'clock tho
next morning, and, his servant not turn
ing up at that hour, Count Pappenheim
was compelled to pack his own tinnk,
borrow a servant fiom tho hotel to
accompany him and lc.avo for Wash
ington. The courier lcturncd to the
hotel at 8 o'clock in the morning and
was "knocked silly" when he ascoi
tained that, bis master had left without
him. The Philadelphia "bloods" wore
badly victimized, but Klccswski had
one of the jolliest times Of his life.
