Fierce Battle at Early Morning
Hour Near Alex?
Alexandria, Va . January 14.? A fierce
battle between constables, and a posse
of citizens of Fairfax County, among
them several summoned from the
Episcopal Theological Seminary, and
burglars who entered the store of a Mr.
Terrett near the Seminary, three miles
west of Alexandria, took place at
2 o'clock this morning. Fully fifty
shots were exchanged, and the robbers
fired at the posse, on the outside, and
then finally made their way out of the
store and escaped without injury.
Constable Cleveland, of Fairfax
County, saw the burglars in the store
at 2 o'clock working with a dark lantern.
He summoned Justice Stuart of the
Seminary, and the latter accompanied
by a number of students and others, all
armed to the teeth, surrounded the
place. The burglars .realizing that
; they were cornered started the battle
by firing a few shots. The posse on the
. outside returned the fire, and in the
meantime this city was notified.
Chief of Polide Goods asked Mayor .
Fisher what was to be done In the case.
The mayor gave his consent for a squad
of officers to go to the place. The,
officers, six In number, accompanied
by Mayor Fisher and his brother.
Corporation Attorney S. P. Fisher. I
went in an automobile to the scene of
action and made rapid progress, but
before they arrived on the scene the j
battle was over, though they could dis?
tinctly hear the shots exchanged a short j
distance before they arrived. Upon
their arrival a complete search for the |
men was made, hut without avail.
The robbers effected an entrance by
prving off the iron bars of a back
window and escaped by means of a
back door. The little store was riddled
with bullets as a result of the battle,
all of the windows being shot out and
bullets embedded in the sides and front
i of it.

Tho Marquis Tacoli. lieutenant of
?ho same Huseei regiment, also a
chamberlain of ihe Emperor, had
I taken one of his brother officers vig?
orously to task foi having spoken
slight ingl. and in his presence of a
member of the imperial family. The
officer made a charge against 'tto
archduke in anoetion whe h the mar?
quis was able to disprove and he
j thereupon branded h's comrade a< a
liar. Of course there was no alterna?
tive after this but for the oBluet to
' challenge the marquis to a duel
I The marquis first of all refused to
: fight on the ground tha? he . ou!<i m"
I be expected to cross swords with a
mun who bad not. only brought a dis?
graceful charge against a member of
the reigning house, but who was also
! a convicted liai ami therefore ua
; worthy of being considered as a gen?
tleman. The matter was brought he
fore a military court of honor, which
insisted that the marquis should ac?
cept, the challenge. Tacoli thereupon
refused, on the ground that tbe laws
of the Catholic Church not only
strictly forbade dueling, but inflicted
the penalty of excommunication upon
those who take part in a duel The
court would not accept this argument
and passed a verdict demanding the
retirement of the marquis from the
army. This decision received the ap?
proval of the Emperor, who deprived
1 the marquis of his badge of chamber?
lain, while all the clubs to which be
belonged exacted his resignation.
Count Joseph Ledochowski. for hav?
ing spoken in defense of his friend and
comrade, the Marchese Tacoli. and
for having eq pressen his sympathy
with him. was also compelled to resign
his commission in the army, and to
surrender his chamberlainship to the
Emperor. Ledochowski. however, was
not required to resign from his clubs.

The Hohenzollern Museum at Ber?

tion of relics concerning the members
of the royal house of Prussia, has just
received a rather interesting acquisi?
tion from Major-Oeneral count von
Reichenbach. It consists of a pair of
gloves and a handkerchief, which he
carried on the occasion of Nobiling s
attempt on the life of the lato Em?
peror William, with whose blood fhey
are stained. The attempt was made
on the 2d of June. 1878, as the Kaiser
was driving back to the palace in Ber?
lin, along the avenue known as Cnter
don Linden. After two shots at the
Kaiser, who had his only daughter, the
now widowed Orand Duchess of Baden,
seated by his side, the would-be assas?
sin attempted to kill himself.
At the moment when the shooting
took place Count Reichenbach, then a
young lieutenant, was standing at the
curbstone saluting. While others
tackled Nobiling, Count von Itatohen
bach leaped into the carriage. lifting
the fainting Kaiser, and stanched the
blood that had been Rowing from his
face. When the Emperor recovered
later on. he sent for the young officer,

; author of the Waverley Novels, was
mentioned the other day as having
been a director or the leading Edin?
burgh life insurance company, in
'order to demonstrate tho tact that
I underwriting was no more a modern
form of business. I would draw at
| tention to the fact that insurance
i was known many hundreds of years
i previously, even away back in the days
of the Caesars at Rome. For the his?
torian Oibbon, in the forty-fourth
j chapter of his "Decline and Fall of
'the Roman Empire." records that the
Justinian Code, which determined tho
; rate of Interest permissible to Roman
i citizens, had decreed 6 per cent as the
! legal standard for ordinary loans, but j
| 12 "was granted to nautical insur?
ance. But except In this perilous ad
! venture, tbe practice of exorbitant
usury was severely restrained."
Marine insurance was extensively
t practiced in the Middle Ages at-Oenoa.

'years or so later, that is to say. about
158*. Lloyd's came into existence in Lon?
don, as the headquarters of marine
insurance, and Sir Walter Scott, in j
his novel. "Rob Roy." describes the
hero of this book as having in 1741 in?
sured the leading land-owners in the
counties of Perth. Stirling and Dumbar?

The Real Cause of
Most Bad Complexions
(From Family Physkiin.)
It is a stern fact that no truly beautiful
' complexion ever came out of jars or bot
| tics, and the longer one use-> cosmetics the
? worse the complexion become;. Skin, to
be healthy, must breathe. It also must
I expel, through the pores, its share of the
I body's effete material. Creams and pow?
ders clog the pores, interfering both with
elimination and breathing If more
women understood this there would be
. fewer self-ruined complexions. If they
! would use ordinary merco?zed wax in
! stead of cosmetics they would have nat?
ural, healthy complexions. This remark?
able substance actually absorb* a bad
skin, also unclogging the pores. Result:
i The fresher, younger under-skin is per
i mitted to breathe and to show itself. An
? exquisite new complexion gradually peeps
1 out, one free from any appearance of arti
ficiality. Get an ounce of mcrcolized wax:
at your druggist's and try it. Apply
nightly like cold cream, for a week or so,
washing it off mornings.
j To eradicate wrinkles, here's a mar
velously effective treatment which also
I acts naturally and harmlessly: Dissolve
I oz. powdered saxolitc in 1-2 pt. witch
hazel and use as a wash.?Advertisement
