. Six boors ago all the women and many
of the men of Madrid were being solemnly
summoned by tolling bells to church and
prayer and devotion. Now all tbe men
and many of the women are rolling to the
merry jingle of mule bells toward the bull
ring and frenzy and blood, writes Sylves
ter Scovel in the New York World.
This Sunday afternoon sees 15,000 afoot,
astride and seated, iWl bound for the com
mon Mecca. Once through the swarming
crowd of water girls and fan sellers, tbe
great amphitheater stretches .out and
around us. Men look like little boys.
Fifteen thousand people will occupy seats.
Six thousand more will hare to stand to
day, for a liberal percentage of tho profits
of this "corrida" is to care for the Spanish
peasant bof s who have gone obediently to
fight in Cuba for an end which renlly
means nothing to them.
But the city folk of Madrid have a strong
interest in the maintenance of Spanish
officeholders in Cuba and hnve turned out
in forco today. The red and yeUow Hags
and awnings, the white lace mantillas
of tho women and tbe glowing colors of
their dresses form a brilliant mass of color.
Fans are waving. Every man and wom
an has one.
Tho royal box is tbe only dark ppot.
Tbe queen regent has courage enough to
show her disapproval of a brutalizing
thingby staying away from even a benefit
for the very wounded in whose behalf she
is so interested.
Now through a massive gate under the
royal box ride into tbe ring two Handsome
men in rich cavalier costumes of black
and gold. A tremendous clapping of hands

He acknowledges a profound salute and
tosses down to tbem a golden key, em
blematic of the unloosing of the bull.
Across tbo wide oircle they gallop on firm,
white sand, just sufficiently dampened to
give thera foothold.
And now tho big military band breaks
into a nervous Spanish march, the big
gates near the heralds swing open and the
march of the toreadors begins, first the
three mntadores in red and gold, their
pluitcd hair hanging from beneath rich
gold embroidered bats.
The costumes are gorgeous. The knee
pants and short open jackets often cost
thousands. All the rust is silk. Dancing
pumps aomplete the dress. Following in
brilliant lines come 40 assistants of vari
They halt opposite the president. All
salute and go to their stations.
One of the best mntadores in Spain is to
kill the first bull. Mazzantini is a gen
tleman born. He was a bank clerk, but
walked out one day, saying:
"There are only two professions in Spain
Which pay begging and bullfighting. I
He receives $1,500 each fight From
this he pays his "candrillos," or seven
comrades of tbe cloak, the banclerilla nnd
tbe finishing knife, leaving him not less
than (1,000 profit. At two fights a week
for 17 weeks a year a good Spanish mata
dore becomes rich in a couple of years, if
the bulls lot him live.
Now a perfect silence shows the first
bull is a boat to be let out of the dark cell
where be has been since early in the day.
A gate is qnickly drawn. Out into the
center of the glaring ring swiftly "trots the
fiercest and finest fighting animal afoot
id Andalusian bull.
This one comes from the Minra es
tate, famous for its vicious product. The
ribbons floating from bis neck denote hi
pedigree. His name Is printed oa the pro
gramme as Medianito. As a yearling
he charged a horse five successive times,
despite the pica ' of tbe rider's sharp
lance, and became a recruit of the first
class. For six years he has lived out of
the eight o' man. No accidents' have
broken the stiletto points of his polished
horns, and today be is fit for the slaughter
of a "corrida formal" or first class combat.
Suddenly he looks right and left with a
aavage alertness as different from the slow
motions of our- pastoral bovines as is a
manscr bullet from a thrown brickbat
He sees a horse and starts for. him.
Gaining speed each second, wUh lowered
bead he strikes tho trembling animal with
shock sensible over tbe whole plaza.
Tbe audience shudder ia dtligbt. Down
go horse and man with a crash. In
darts a toreador, dashing his red cloak into
tbe goring animal's blooiUhot eyea.
The bull follows the scarlet He charge
It. Tbe man springs aside -with a graceful
Bpward ewscp of tbe cloak. Tba bull
passes nnder it with lowered bead and
closed eyes. Tbe man enlotea the audi
ence, which applauds the dexterous move
ment, or "quit."
Meanwhile the red ahirted and capped
assistant are dragging tbe prone picador
from under his weltering horse. Some
times the bull docs not follow tbe eloak
after the charge. Then the slicing horns
rip and rip, and there is one more picador
gone. Thee horsemen show the super best
eonrago. Ibey lie perfectly still, trusting
all to their comrades.
This time the horse is lifted bodily and
hurled against the 1 carrier. The picador ia
jammed between. There is stillness, brok
en by a child's shriek. Again tbe scarlet
cloaks draw off the bull. The picador la
dragged out with a Kg broken, despite its
And now commences the real fighting
of the bull. Now the sensations change
to genuine excitement.
A litho athlete in red velvet, gold em
broidery and silk approaches tho still agile
bull. He holds In each hand a bnndcrilla,
or 3 foot ribboned stick, ending in a
3 inch ftcel barb. He can enly thrnst
these into tbe bull's shoulders as itcharges
with lowered head and wicked horns.
Man and beast approach each other. With
the bull right upon him tho banderillero
leans over, plants his barbs, springs won
derfully aside, and the curved horns miss
him about six Inches. Bellowing with
rage the animal receives four more sting
ing banderiilas. He is frothing at the
mouth, and his flanks are heaving.
The trumpets blow. Tbe matadore ap
proaches the presidential box. Removing
his hat he begs permission to kill, tosses
his hat over the barrier nnd takes his sword
and small scarlet silk banner. He ap
proaches the bull, holding the banner in
his right hand. Quite close be comes, anil
the bull charges. A short turning side
step and Mazzantini dexterously sweeps the
banner so as to bring the bull short
around facing him again. Time and time
again he repeats it. The closer tbe needle
pointed horns shave bim each passage the
louder howls the audience.
The bull is tiring. Now he stands, but
his bead is turned slightly. Again be is
tempted to charge and is brought about
perhaps by the aid of another toreador
with a larger cloak. Now he stands correct
ly, front feet even, bead well up. Quickly
changing the scarlet to his left hand nnd
holding it in front of him, Mazzantini'
right band grips his sword. He is so close
that a moment's hesitation at an unexpect
ed charge would cost bim bis life. He
sights the razor weapon. Now the bull
charges the scarlet
With a lightning left side step Mazzan
tini passes the scarlet under his right arm.
The bull strikes it Bot three Inches from
the matadose's side, at the instant that the
exquisitely tempered Toledo blade hits the
small'snot exactly between and just in
front of tbe shoulders that leads down at
an angle of 30 degrees to tbo heart.
The thnist, if perfectly delivered, takes
the sword in to the hilt Tho brave ani
mal sinks to bis knees, struggles to rise,
drops agnin, andtben tbo puntillero come
up and gives the merciful death stab baok
of tho horns.
If done in exact accordance with tbe
thousand and one points of "good form,"
the killing matadore is clamorously cheer
ed. Hats fly at him, beuqueta are show
ered into the ring. He walks around the
circle, the real monarch of Spain.
The trumpets blow, and another bull
rashes Id. There Is more'horseflesh gored
and more of exquisitely skillful athletics.
Then another and another, until six bulls
have been killed, two to the sword of each
Aa Amorous Ghees.
There is a genuine haunted bonse of the
old fashioned kind In Ponckbockic, near
Kingston, N. Y., and people won't live in

Da Bois, who in tbe material life was a
spiritualist and is apparently in the spirit
ual lfte'a materialist, fur it is averred
that tho shade of old Da Bois haunts the
bouse and hugs women.
James Burke lived in the haunted bonse
until the wraith of Dn Bois took it into
Its ghostly bead to hug Mrs. Barke, who
is comely. Mr. Burke found bis wife ly

told ber husband when she recovered that
she bad seen a shadowy form and that tbe
ghost bad caught ber ia biaamraand bug
Not only wa she badly soared, but ber

outraged, and she declared she would not
submit to the ignominy of being caressed
by a departed spirit again. So tbe Burke
moved out, and now strange noises are
heard in tbe dead of night in tbe bouse,
and people walk on tbe other aide of tbe
way and whisper with white lips:
"Old Dn Bois Is walking again."

He fired three shots, only one of whlob

entering the parietal Inne on the left side,
just below the coronal suture. It was
easily removed, together with a piece of
splintered bono. Dreher recovered quickly
and was placed on trial for tbe murder.
He seemed perfectly rational, although
dull and brutal. Tbe evidence was clear
against him, and he excited little sym
pathy. He was convicted and condeinndd
While in prison awaiting execution he

The old scar whero the splinter of bone
had been removed was examined and It
was seen that now bone had formed and
grown to an abnormal thickness. This
thickening would naturally press on the
brain inside the skull and was apparently
the cause of Droher's insanity.
Tho asylum physicians reported to Gov
ernor Stephens thut Dreher would possi
bly be restored to sanity by the operation
of trephining. Tbo governor ordered tbe
operation to bo performed.
