WOMEN DECIDE A WAGER.
Incumbrancc of Skirts Shown by Prac?
Two women well known in Vienna
were recently walking beside Lake
Geneva, discussing the latest fash
ions; when one of them suddenly re
marked that she wished she was not
obliged to wear a skirt, as she would
very much .like to bathe then and
there in the cool lake. A warm argu
ment followed, one maintaining that
a petticoat would not prove an en
cumbrance in the water and the other
insisting that no woman who wore
either a petticoat or corsets could
swim or even keep afloat for more
than a few minutes.
As neither j would give way to the
other, they,, "filially resolveu to test
the matter* practically, and conse
quently, after making a small wager,
they plunged into the lake. As they
were dressed.in the height of fashion
"their appearance in the water caused
a sensation among a crowd of tour
ists who were on the bank, and at
once the cry arose that they intended
to commit suicide. A minute or two
later half a dozen boats were on the
way to rescue, them, but the ladies
laughingly said that they required no
assistance, and to show that ther
were in no danger they swam out a
little way and then returned to the
Theebine who had maintained that a
wdman's dress was no encumbrance

that she was mistaken, and vowed
that In future whenever she visited
the lake she would dispense with her
corsets.-New York Herald.

BRAVE FIGHT FOR LIBERTY.
Russian Count's Vain Efforts to Es
cape Secret Police.
The career of the Russian Count
Nicholas Savin, who was arrested at |
Hamburg a few days ago on the in- |
formation of the Russian secret police,
reads like a page of fiction. Several
times previously the count, by most
reckless courage, had escaped from
his prison exile in Siberia, where ha
had been sent for committing forgery,
and each time he was recaptured and
extradited from the country where he
was found. His last flight, which has
just ended in hi:? arrest at Hamburg,
has given the Russian police ten
years' trouble. Thc count got away
from Siberia in 1S93. and succeeded in
reaching the United States. For five
years he lived undiscovered in Chi
cago, earning his living at various
times as wp.it.er. billiard-marker, cab
man and tram.conductor. In 1SS8 he
volunteered for the war. and fought
ewith great distinction with the Amer
ican troops against Spain. Afterwards
he went to Spain as the representa
tive of an American expert house. The
Russian secret police were meanwhile
making an incessant search and re
cently they located him in Spain.
When the count discovered that his
identit . was known he boarded a
steamei ~l Lisbon, bound for Ham
burg. Detectives booked passages by
the same vessel, and on arrival at
Hamburg persuaded the German au
thorities to seize the count. He will
be taken back to Siberia after the'
extradition formalities. The count,
who is 44 years of age, is the husband
of the French Countess Lantrec de

TO MEET IN ST. LOUIS,
Selection for the Meeting Place of
the Democratic Convention
COMMITTEE SPRINGS SURPRISE,
It Was Generally Conceded That
Chicago Would Be Chosen, But
St. Louis.Won the Victory.
Washington, Special-The Demo
cratic national committee furnished a
surprise, selecting St. Louis as the
place for the national convention of
1904. The date fixed for the conven
tion was Wednesday, July 6, at 12
o'clock. Previous to the meeting of
the committee is seemed a foregone
conclusion that Chicago would be the
selceted place of meeting, but politi
cal extlngencies entered into the sit
uation and a majority of the commit
tee voted for St. Louis. For some
hours previous to the meeting there
was talk in the corrodors and among
Democratic leaders that the conven
tion in Chicago might be subject to
the influence of a strong movement
and a strong newspaper influence in
favor of some particular candidate.
,Mr.Knapp, of the St. Louis Republic,
hinted at this in a speech by saying
that the convention, if held at St.
Louis, would be welcomed by an ab
solutely fair press.
The committee meeting caused con
siderable discussion of politics and
the claims of various candidates were
advocated by their partisians, but
nothing favoring* any candidate ap
peared in the committee proceedings.
William J. Bryan, when the commit
tee had concluded its labors, appeared
but his viait was without any appar
ent political significance. He did not
come to the hotel until after the com
mittee had about concluded its busi
ness. He was warmly greeted by the
members of the committee and invit
ed a number of times by members to
call on them at their hotels.
The committee was called to order
by Chairman James K. Jones, of Ark

members took their seats they faced
