AN APPLE FROM
Before leaving St. Petersburg Imme
diately after tho great January massa
cre I called ou the American minister,
tvhom I knew, and he asked me to car
ry dispatches to Washington, whither
I was going, I accepted the coinmts
ton and left on the night train. It was
overloaded with people aiming to es
cape the terrible events transpiring In
the capital. A railroad otllclal tapped
me on the shoulder and offered to show
mo to a scat. He took me to a car
where there was room for but one per
son, put mo in, shut the door and was
off beforo I could fee him. This aston
ished me, for I bad supposed a fee was
the object of his attention.
At every station on tho route one or
more of the passengers jn my compart
ment got out till at last there was but
ono left, a young girl. I had settled my
self for a nap, but was bUII half awake,
when I was conscious that this girl
was rummaging my satchel. I was
about to start up to prevent her when
curiosity changed my intention, and I
feigned to be sound asleep. The girl
found my passport and seized upon it
eagerly.-evldently much relieved to find
It in the satchel. Thcu she threw off a
mackintosh, took a soft bat out of her 1
pocket and appeared as a man. Rolling
her castoff clothing in a bundle, she
lowered the window and threw it out
It was not long after this that the
train stopped, the door opened and an
officer put In his bead and called for
passports. It was a critical moment with
the girl, and she turned pale bb death.
Opening my satchel, I hunted for what
I knew she bad taken and, not finding
It, endeavored to explain to the officer
that I had left it behind. Meanwhile
the girl had produced it The officer
was sufficiently absorbed in my case to
band it back to her with but a hasty
"Your passport I" he demanded of me
"I think I can satisfy you," I said,
and, taking the envelope bearing my
dispatches addressed to the secretary
of state at Washington, also the seal of
the American embassy, I showed it to
him. After some words he agreed to
telegraph to St Petersburg for instruc
tions, which should arrive beforo we
reached the frontier. Then bo locked
the door and In a few minutes the train
I expected the girl would thank me
for what I had done, but I had played
my part so well that she really believed
I thought I had left my passport be
hind. Presently I said to her In French:
"Mademoiselle, you will pass the bor
der safely. I shall probably bo detain
ed. Mny I ask that you will wait for
me at well, suppose I meet you at
Urombcrg for return of my passport?"
Without a word she camo over to
whero I sat, knelt before mo and kissed
"Monsieur, you have saved me from
death or worse than death Siberia,"
"You are very fortunate in availing
yourself of my passport"
"It Is not luck. A clerk in the Ameri
can embassy inrormed our club tliat
you were to depart tonight. You wcro
shown Into this compartment by a
railway official who is also a member
of the club. The compartment was
filled with other members of the club
to prevent any one else from riding In
It The plan was laid for me, In the
hope that I might steal your passport.
Had I not found It in your satchel I
should have drugged you."
"Why are you leaving Russia?"
"Just now it would not bo best to
"You are right.. I would rather not
When we reached the frontier the train
stopped, and tho officer appeared and
said that he had received a telegram
that at tho request of the American
minister I was to bo permitted to go on
without a passport. As soon as be bad
withdrawn I looked at the girl. Sbe
had fainted. I revived her with a
draft from my flask.
We had not gone far beyond the bor
der when from under a shawl on the
seat behind her she produced nn npple,
lowered tho window and was about to
throw tho apple out when I stopped
"I think I deserve your confidence,"
I said. "What does this mean?"
"I must get rid of it," she gasped,
looking at me appeallngly. "It is a
Taking it from her, I hurled It with
all my strength into a field. There was
an explosion. The train camo to a stop,
and every bead was thrust out of the
windows. After examination, the offi
cials, finding that no Injury had result
ed, started the train.
Arriving at Berlin, the girl gave me
her address on my promise not to re
veal it, and the next morning I called
on her. She confessed the reason for
her sudden departure from Russia.
"I was deputed by our club," she
salrt, "to kill that terrible roan, the
Grand Duke Vladimir. I am tho daugh
ter of a noble, a high official in the gov
ernment, and have access to all except
the emperor. The day I left St Peters
burg I had offered a basket of fruit to
the grand duko containing two apples,
both of which were merely apple skins
filled with a glass bulb, tho bulb filled
with an explosive. He chose one of the
apples, and I brought away the other.
The one be took be laid on his desk.
An hour later I beard that thero had
been an explosion In his office, but be
was not Injured. My plan had failed.
"But I am only tho first link in the
chain," she added. "There are many
others. It will be accomplished yet."
She offered to return my passport,
but I contributed it to the causo of

YACHT RACK UEUISS.
South Coast Fleet I'rcsonl and Ulvo
Racers bend Off.
San Pedro, June 11. The great
trans-Pacific Yacht race for the
trophy offered by the Hawaiian
Yacht Club was started at noon
today from this place.
La Paloma left her anchorage at
11:30. She was followed shortly
afterwards by the Anemone, and
the Lurlinc. All the yachts passed
the judges, who ate B. B. Gregory
and W. B. Sylvester, and who were
stationed on the end of the Break
water. They reported lo- the
Starter Judge A. Lester.
The scene nt the start of the race
was magnificent. The day was
ideal. All the yachts of the South
Coast were present, and some of
the larger yachts followed the
racers far out to sea.
The following are the yachts
entered: The Lurlinc, once owned
by Commodore John D. Spreckels,
is now owned by H. H. Sinclair; a
sturdy boat and well used to show
ing her heels (for so sailors phrase
it) to her rivals. She is 83 feet
over all and is full 21 feet beam
La Paloma is a Honolulu boat of
some forty-fivo tons burden and
but 49 feet in length, but a crack
ing good sailer in fair or stormy
weather. She is owned by Clarence
The Anemone is nn auxiliary boat
of 116 feet length which came all
the way from New York to contest
tor the handsome trophy. She is
ketch rigged and her length is
supposed to give her an advantage,
although there will be a handicap
of one hour to each foot of length.
She is owned by Charles L. Tutt.
As there is a vast difference in
the size of the yachts it was agreed
that for each foot of length one
hour would be allowed for each
foot of difference between the
yachts. Therefore it is possible
that if the La Paloma is the last
one sighted she may be the winner
of the race.
The finish will be off the Dia
mond Head light house where a
lookout will be stationed day and
night. As soon as the yacht is re
ported she will proceed leisurely to

mittee in charge of the affair for

received from people all over the

Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy, it is evident this remedy
has been found satisfactory. It is
the best known remedy for diar

reported where it has failed to give
relief, and it has been in general
use for more than a quarter of a
