State Treasurer Albert E. Bent to
night gave publicity to a story, of the"
visit he received from a woman MdrfO
day afternoon in his office in the capir
tol. The visitor said she represented
an eastern magazine and was collect
ing material for an article to be en
titled "A Morning In Colorado's Capi
tol." His 'visitor's ' actions were pe
culiar, and Bent said she seemed" to be
constantly watching the door to his
privates-office, which stood open and
outside of which several men were
waiting for interviews.
After questioning him a little further,
the woman suddenly excused herself,
saying s.he would return later, and left
the room. An hour or so -later the
Phipps affair occurred. • From the de
scription of Mrs. Read printed in the
newspapers, as well as her photograph,'
Bent is convinced that the woman who
paid him the strange visit was no other
than Mrs. Read and "fhat when she
visited him she had in mind a purpose
similar to that carried out in her meet
ing with Mrs. Phipps. '
in confirmation of the theory that
Mrs. Reid was under the influence of
another woman, a local palmist and
clairvoyant appeared at the police sta
tion this afternoon and identified Mrs.
Read as one of the two women who
visited him on Tuesday of last week

of Mme. Leroy and seemed to be in

It , further developed that • two
women had called at the mansion of
Mrs. Walter Cheeseman, widow of. the
former president of the Denver union
water company, and very wealthy, sev
eral times' on November 4, explaining
that they wanted to sell some valuable
lace pieces that had been smuggled
into this country.
It is pretty well established that
Mrs. Read arrived in Denver from the
east early last' week, but no one has
been able to account for her between
that time and Saturday last, when she
registered at the American house as
Mrs. H. C. Jones.
Late this afternoon Mrs. Read was
released in bonds of $200, on a charge
of assault on one of the detectives who
arrested her. She is .with her husband

M. Nakoff Declares Bulgarian
independence Should Have ;
SOFIA, . Nov. 11.— The national as
sembly-today* was the arena of a no
table republican demonstration during
the debate on the address In reply to
the royal message. The cabinet failed
to control its own supporters and sev
eral members of the majority delivered
the most- violent attacks upon Emperor
Ferdinand ever heard within the walls
of the assembly. The growing Influence
of the crown -was denounced as v dis
astrous.to "the liberties .of the people,
and the ministers were warned that the
nation was In no mood to pay so dearly
for 'the 'new, crown* or to /suffer Its In
terests to be jeopardized for the grati
fication of monarchinl ambitions. There
were frequent. lnteri*uptibns and calls
of "Treason.'.' : - The presiding officer and
the .ministers tried .every means to
silence the "speakers/b ut the house
bestowed a sympathetic hearing.
M. Nakoff, representing' the Plevna
constituency, declared the Bulgarian
independence should have been in the
direction of a republic, not a monarchy.
The crown, he said, was a far greater
danger! to popular institutions than
factitious vassallge to' Turkey.
M. Soderoff declared that constitu
tional government in Bulgaria' had been
a' fiction; for many years. / Prince Ferdi
nand has usurped the entire conduct
of external affairs and almost entirely
that* of internal affairs, reducing the
ministers to .the position of mere pup
pets. The- "establishment of the new
royal crown had been- engineered at a
heavy expense to national interest,
alienating of the confidence of the pow
ers,; loss of the : best market for- Bul
garia's agricultural and Industrial
products; (Turkey) and probably de
pletion of the treasury from payment
of compensation to Turkey: The min
isters had violated, the constitution in
sanctioning the royal title, which only

A group numbering 23 deputies, com

Sister of Young Farmer, AVho
Lived as a Hermit, Finds
Missing Man's -Grave
Another Hermit Who Disap»
peared at Time of Murder
Is Under Arrest
SI'KCIAI. DISPATCH TO THE CAIX
CHICAGO. Nov. 11. — Out on a deso
late little plot of ground two miles
north of Marengo a girl uncovered-' a
murder mystery today., the details of
which indicate so cold blooded a crime
that the farmers living in the vicinity
have been fascinated by the scene.
The body of Oscar Hogan'son, a young
farmer, who was living the life of a
hermit on his own farm, lias been Uug
out of the soft earth of a chicken house
on the farm of John N. Bedford. Bed
ford,' like Hoganson.- had been living
alone on his farm, but disappeared Im
mediately after Hbgansoti's death. Such
a mass of circumstantial evidence was
discovered which* pointed to^. him that
when he finally was found in Ellis,
Neb., he was arrested and now Is
being brought back to Chicago. .
A strange presentiment of the dead
man's sister, Arvilla Hoganson, la cred
ited with the discovery of the body. The
girl can not explain the feeling which
caused her to visit the plae«r today and
lead the* searchers to dig In that par
ticular spot. She was certain, however,
that she had reached the grave of 'her
murdered brother and the diggers soon
verified her belief.
"Villa, we've got it," exclaimed the
brother, with whom she "had gone to
the farm, at the same time drawing
from the ground a muddy coat sleeve
which contained the arm of the dead
Then the farmers began to piece to
gether, bit by bit. their past suspicions
of Bedford, the missing farmer. They
remembered at least three holdups that
have taken place in the vicinity of the
Bedford farm In as many months. One
of the farmers told the Hogansons that
he had seen Oscar standing on Bed
ford's porch talking with Bedford at
noon on the day he was murdered.' That
was the last time lie was seen alive.
* It was a few days after this that
Bedford was seen hovering about the
rear of his \ house burning what ap
peared to be^a carpet and some clothes.
The next night he departed and nothing
further was seen of him.

Woman May Try to Make Them
It does not matter how beautiful a
woman may be. If she Is afilleted with
bad breath she will b« shunned and
pitted by men and even women will
studiously avoid her.
If any woman doubts this statement
let her make a point of asking a friend
In whom she may confide, a man friend,
or relative. If he b* honest he will tell
her that foul breath from the mouth of
a woman wtll drive men from her more
rapidly than any other personal af-
Foul breath arouses In man dlasrust
and where this quality Is brought Into
play no amount of self-denial or rea-
soning can overcome the natural repus-
nance which comes to a man when he i 3
in company with such a woman.
.What is true of bad breath in women
is not true in so great a degree In men.
Women are looked upon as the incar-
nation of sweetness, breeding, virtue *
and refinement. Foul breath will sicken
a man so that he cannot feel for surh
a woman a companionship necessary.
• to make him desire to-be In her
