SCANDAL IN COURT LIFE.
Austrian Princec3 Seriously Wounds
New York, Dec. 8.Prince Otto of
Windisch-Graetz, his youthful and im
mensely wealthy wife, the Princess
Elizabeth Marie, whom he married
only a year ago, and a pretty actress
of the opera at Prague are the central
figures in an extraordinary story ca
bled from Vienna to the World.
The princess, who is the grand
daughter on her father's side of the
emperor of Austria and on her moth
er's side of the king of the Belgians,
oniy twenty years old, a royal person
age who renounced her rights to the
throne of Austria in order to marry as
her heart dictated, is asserted to have
shot and seriously wounded a hand
some actress with whom the prince is
alleged to have had a rendezvous.
The affair is said to have taken
place in the palace of the estate of the
prince's family at Prague.
It appears that Prince Otto had been
secretly paying attention to the ac
tress, whose beauty had been causing
a sensation in Prague. The princess,
presumably informed by a disappoint
ed suitor of the footlight favorite that
a rendezvous had been arranged in
the palace, was thrown into a passion
and hurried to the prince's apartments
with a small revolver he had given
her. A valet stood at the door and
refused her admittance. She drew the
revolver and fired, it is stated. The
valet fled, screaming at the top of his
voice. Entering the rooms the prin
cess confronted her husband, who at
tempted to hold her arm, but she is
then said to have been at the height
of rage and to have fired point blank
at the actress, who cowered in a cor
ner. The woman fell, severely, but
not fatally wounded.

Each straggling one It brings to me
A perfume from life's sacristy.
This tiny jhoe without a heel,
Where little piggies used to steal,
To me is more than priceless gem
Plucked from a royal diadem.
It brings from amaranthine
The face my loving eyes bent o'e
It brings, dear heaven! from tb night,
Her kiss, her voice, her smile'- delight.
Ah! what may not a mother list
Whose cares aTe tended to the mist
That rises out of shadow land
Made glad by the angelic band?
Their voices come on wings of air
To greet her, patient, waiting there,
Enrapt with this morocco shoe
A-gap where baby's toes peeped through.
There comes no sweetness like the song
Of love's Invisibles, who throng
The sacred cloisters of the heart,
Unknown to all the world apart.
So, I may list the whispers soft,
Waft to me from the throne aloft
Ah, only heard by me, the while
My mind recalls the baby's smile.

Hair of All Shades.
No one has visited Fiji in the past
without being astonished at the fear
ful and wonderful styles of- hairdress-
ing. They are geometrical, monu
mental, pyramidal and trapezoidal. An
additional factor in this production of
the grotesque is that the hair varies
in color as lime varies in bleaching
power, or as the juice of the mangrove
in coloring matter. Between black
and white the colors run through the
blue-black and all the shades of red
and yellow. Often half the hair is red
and the other half white, giving a kind
of piebald effect.
Two Kinds of Jacks.
The wife of a Chestnut street mer

is very fond of roses, especially of the

business: "I see, my dear, that Jacks
are becoming cheaper," "That may be
true," said the husband, absently

Tennessee Mountain Preachers.
The oratorical gift of the preachers
of mountain regions of Tennessee is
much admired by their simple parish
ioners, if somewhat too florid for se
verer tastes. Residents of that part
of the country relate many anecdotes
of their eloquence, as well as their ab
surd interpretations of Scripture. It
is the hight of every boy's ambition to
be a preacher, although it is an affec
tation among the horny-handed por
tion of the population to pretend to
despise those who do not engage in
Why Chinese Ride Women's Bicycles.
The first bicycle dealers who tried
to sell wheels to the Chinese were sur
prised to find that there was a big and
ready demand for women's wheels,
but practically none for men's
wheels. Yet none of the bicycle drum
mers could report having seen many
women, if any, riding the \nachines.
The mystery was explained finally
when it was learned that the Chinese
man preferred the women's wheels be
cause the skirts that form part of
their costumes made it difficult to

Good Story Cut Short.
Chauncey M. Depew was recently

when a girl in the party laughed. He
stopped with a frown. "What's the

I told you only half an hour ago."
Whereupon Senator Depew, suddenly

Few Attend Prayer Meeting.
A notable result of the recent cen
sus of church attendance in London
is the discovery that prayer-meetings,
which were once regarded as the vital
breath of life of the church, have al
most ceased to exist. In the populous
borough of Chelsea, only thirty per
sons were found to be in attendance
at prayer-meetings. Thirty persons
out of seventy thousand. Week-night
services have also fallen into disuse.
Hiccoughed for Ninety-six Hours.
A youth of seventeen, residing at

to always eat the same kind of food.
The change of diet in the boarding

fit of hiccoughing which lasted for
ninety-six hours. During that period
food had to be given artificially, and
be lost weight considerably.
