"There- Is a certain pride running
through the Gould family that has been
aroued by till incident. The-re is a tacit
understanding that eaeh member's wclfaie

has always been beloved by her brother-)
and sisters. That this affection will Ik- dem
onstrated in a substantial manner now
there can be no doubt. They will see to it
that she is not in any way annoyed be
cause of her husband's wild extravagance.
"Hither Castellane's debts will lie paid
at once, or some arrangement will be made
with her creditors-, v. hereby she will be in
no way Inconvenienced.

"As to the story that the Countess will
leave her husband and return to New York,
you may dismiss that notion as idle Kosslp.
It is true that Mr. Georse Gould is going
Jo r.irls at some time in the near future.
It Is necessary for lthn to do so in the
capacity of trustee for hi sister.
"Hut 1 happen to know that the Countess
Cnstellnne. while sensible ,if her husband's
shortcomings. Is very much attached to him.
Xo. theie is no occasion for a scandal, and
there will be none. Countess Castoil.me
will live In France as becomes her station.
She will not be forced lo liv in retirement
or comparative penury. although her hus
band's reckless extravagance will, of course,
come to a n end.

Xew York. Xov. 2 Mrs. George M. Pull
man, widow of Georgo M. Pullman of Chi
cago and mother of George M. Pullman, to
day declared that she would not pay any
of the debts Incurred by her son.
. This announcement was the result of a
report that she had sent a check for Sl,

ness, who obtained an attachment against
her son's horses and carriages on Thursday
because of an unpaid bill for the amount
"I will not pay the debts of either of my
sons," Mrs. Pullman said, when I saw her
at the Waldorf-Astoria. "They have money
enough of their own and are responsible
for whatever Indebtedness they may incur.
I wish the public to know this so that I
may not be worried by persons who may
try to collect from me any debts my son
may owe. I Imvo led a very quiet life since
the death of my husband, and I do not in
tend to be annoyed in such it maimer.
"If John F. Martin asserts that I liave
settled the Judgment against my son, he
states what is not true. I have not paid the.
bill and do not intend to. The man called
three times on Thursday, hut I refused to
see him. Perhaps when my son's creditors
learn that I will not be responsible for his
bills, they will cease annoying me."
George M. Pullman left New York on
Thursday for Chicago, and, it is said, will
go from there to California to remain for
eiht or nine months for the benefit of his
health. When this was mentioned, Mrs.
"My ton is going with me to Pasadena.
Cal.. but we are going for the purpose of
attending a wedding and not on account of
his health. The report that he Is suffering
from luntt trouble is incorrect. I shall
leave New York on Saturday, and will join
him in Chicago, and we will go "West to
gether. How- long he will remain I do not
l:now. He can come and go as he pleases,
but I hope he will get Into some business."
Mrs. Pullman begged to be excused from
discussing her son's recent infatuation for
Mrs. .Louise Rowers, whose husband now
has a suit against Pullman for the aliena
tion of his wife's affections.
Mrs. Pullman also denounced Gustav
Bearing, the man who claims to be a son of
the late George M. Pullman, as an im

FLIGHT OF ROYAL PARTY.

Suffered Many Indignities.

hama advices, dated October 11. give in
teresting details of the escape of the Em
press Dowager and the Emperor from IV

the citv after tho allies gained possession,
but also that their lllght was of the most
hurried and even pathetic character.
Thev left early on the morning of August

At Kwan they procured a camel, on
whose back a sedan chair was fixed, and
at Sueii-Hwn-llien four more, were secured.
Tl.ev had neither liiggace nor robes for
three nights, were obliged to sleep on bare
divans (brick beds, warmed by a slow fire
below), with no covering. They weie un
able to get proper meals, and had to satisfy
their hunger on rice gruel.
On their arrival at Hwat-Lal local offi
cials lent their services, and from that
on they escaped all the humiliations that
they had thus far experienced. It seems
that on the Kith of August the. o'rder to
move the court from Pekln was Issued, but
there was no means of conveyance. On the
morning of the 13th, the artillery of the
allies was heard, its roaring Increasing un

Flushing, Pa.. Xov. 1. The decision of
tlie Heeietary of the Treasury that the wile
of a. Chinese native-born citizen of the
United States is entitled to admission into
the. United States, has a case in point In
this city, but the principal will not take
advantage of it. He is Lim Ah Ileaum of
Grant street. Lim was born in this coun
try and when he grew to manhood visited
tlie Flowery Kingdom. There he met and
married his present wife. She. however, re
fused to accompany him to this country
and he returned alone. In tlie meantime
he has accumulated quite a coinielence,
and Is now preparing to go fo China, where
ho will build a. house and establish a home
In "peaking of the matter, the Iteverend
Doctor E. It. Donchoo. the recognized fiiend
of the Chinamen in Western Pennsylvania,
said that, with the exception of a few
isolated case1", the ruling would make little
difference. The laige majority of the China
men who come to this country, or at least
those who liave lived here, have wives and
families in China. They come here usually
to en.gage in business. As soon as they ac
quire sufficient money they return to their
native country to spend the icmainder of
their lives. They all want to die in China
among their ancestors and relatives. An
other reason why so few wives of China
imn join their husbands in this country
is the fact that the wives themselves re
fuse to come.
An interesting case which has come under
the notice of Doetor Donchoo latelv is that
of a Chinaman living In this countrv whoso
wife died in her native land. Since that
timo he lias married an American girl, and
now desiies to Import a child born to the
first marriage. This question has also been
passed uion, and the ruling made that tho
cl.iidren in such instances mar be admitted
lo tho United States, but other relatives,
such as nieces or nephews, me. barred

(Copyright. 1P. by W. It. Hearst.)-Tlie
awful fate of Miss Mary S. Morrill, the
only one of the American missionaries
about whose end there was any doubt,
was revealed to-day at the dial before the
Allied Court, over which the French Gen
eral. Hallleiid, is presiding.
The fate of Miss Annie Gould has al
ready been told. That id .Miss Mm rill was
similar, but her death was not so merciful.
When the other missionaries all men-wen-
biirne-d to death in their houses these
two brave young women were laid aside,
reserviil for a more exquisite tortuie.
Tin se Chinese Heads liave devised
agonies of which Westerners have only a
remote Idea. They knew that these two
pure women could be hurt mole by shame
than by physical torture.
Saw Their IlelViider.x Homed.
After making them walch the burning of
their mission houses with their .faithful
male defenders ill them, after compelling
them to stand by while the streets ran with
the blood of their native converts, they
Mripped them of their clothing and tied
them lie- thu hair to long bamboo poles.
Coolies bore the other ends ol these poles
and forced them to match, naked, through
the crowded streets of the gieat city.
Tlio savage moo spat upon them and
threw vile lefuse as they passed. The
b:ood-tlilrs!y Chinese soldiers devoured them
with hungry eyes. Through the miles of
crowded slieets they walked, stained and
bleeding, encouraging each other from time
to time with a prayer or a verse from the
story of the passion of him, fur love of
whom they were suffering. In whose holy
footsteps they were treading the rough road
Miss Gould, enfeebled by long weeks of
watching and anxiety, succumbed, and
death from terror robbed her torturers of the
fiendish pleasure they had designed for
themselves In her asony.
Hut Miss Morrill Mumbled bravely on,
alone, to her martyrdom.
Welcome Death Came nt I.uit.
A liiBhiy-edcui'ted Cbristlan Chinaman
who escaped the massacre and who wit
nessed tlie scene, told the court tn-day that
her eyes were raised to heaven with a look
in them as if she saw it alreuly open ready
to receive her. She was like Hypatla among
the savage Christians of Alexandria, alone,
naked, with death her only hope.
Outside the city walls her tortures
stopped. The Indignities that they heaped
upon her were such as the devils of hell

which her father received early in August,
it was dated May ."A and was a brave fare
well. ".Miss fioidd and I cannot leave if wo
would and would not If we could." she
wrote. "Our twenty-two girls m:ty be able
to leave after examination on June 1.1. hut
most probably will not. With Hie country
in Its present state It would not lie ex
pedient, to say the least, for girls and
women to be on the road. Their large feet
would at once show their affiliation with
the hated foreigners. Ko we are bound to
stay here and care for them. Of course, if
the worst should come, we would only say
that we arc at our posts."
After telling of the killing of a Chinese
General who had tried to suppress the Hox
ers, and somo unimportant matters, she
"I am afraid it will not lie so easy to
sen, away the girls. Some of them live in
an infected district. Of course, if we could
seo them safe with their parents it would
be easier for us to leave at a moment's
notice. It may be that the bands that have
destroyed the railroads will move in
another direction. It may he that some
check will be put upon their movements.
The Lord can do as great things as he has
done In the past, for his arm is not short
ened that he cannot save, nor his ear heavy
that he cannot hear.
"Do not feel too troubled about us. The
danger Is all around and near, but God is
nearer. Good nisht."

show their disapproval of olilcial action. In
defiance of the regulation forbidding ab

position to defy authority on the part of a
portion of the cadets had been quieted,
formed them in line and marched them
back to barracks. Before sending them to
their quarters the commandant spoke to
them of the serious aspect of their defiance
of authority, commenting en tho fact that

"We used to buy our coffee from an ngen.
or a coffee house in , who came once a,
month to take our order. When we would
run out we bought package eoffci: rrom a
local grocer, and 'hubby would always raise
more or less of a :ow until the coflee he was
used to came along.
"One time I concluded to serve some Pos
tum Kood Coffee, without his knowing it.
Hubby remarKed that he was glad to know
the regular coffee man had got along and he
was very much pleased, fie tuid not the
slightest idea, it was I'ostum. and I let this
run along for about two months, serving nun
I'ostum every day. A lady guest at our
table remarked that she would like to know
how 1 made cotfee, as her always had a
bitter taste. I thought It was a good time to
tell the truth, and remarked that I always
took four heaping te.ispoonsful of I'ostum.
Food Coffee 'What?' yelled hubby,
what's that:' Yes, I take tour heaping tea
spoons of I'ostum to the pint of wv.ter.' (Hub
by was still staring.) 'Let it stand on tho
stove until it really boll.- and then allow the
actual boiling to1 continue thereafter for
littcen minutes." 1'ou can imagine how ho
wared. Finally he remarked: -Well, if tho
coffee I have been drinking for two months
is I'ostum Food Coffee that Is tho only kind
we will huA-c In the house hereafter.'
"I was brought to try I'ostum, for I had
so much trouble with my heart for four or
live years, with fainting spells and so many
times a day was cornpelle.d to sit down to
keep from falling, could not go up and
down cellar on account of dizziness, and a
sick feeling at my stomach, could not eat
any thing greasy.
"After a thoiough examination by the doc
tor I was told that 1 had catarrh of the
stomach in the worst form and he forbid
the use of cither tea or coffee,, so I started
In on I'ostum, leaving off the old coffee en
tirely, as Well as tea. I immediately began
to get better and now my trouble Is entirely
gone and I am well In every respect and
aide to eat anything I want, without dis
tress. I proved to my own satisfaction that
coffee was the cause of my trouble." Mrs.
