to the step a springiness, to the eye a
brightness and to the mind a clearness that
they can get from no other source. If you

Paris, March 7. The leport that
Johu WiNou Durant. of Albany, N. Y.,
who had beeu livliis? tlurins Ike last
two year in Paris with his uiuthtir
had been killed at Ostcml in a duel
with a Itussian count was an iuven
tion of his owu. Durant is si ill alive.
No duel was fought. The whole story
was a pure fabrication. This was def
initely established last eveniny; wkeu it
became kuown that two letters had
been received in Paris from Durant.

other London. March 4. In Ike for

requesting that a change bo niile in
the arrangement suggested in the tirst
letter and that his mail be forwarded
to London, 'you will understand 1 of

Telegram Tell of Ilia Death.
These letters are in Durant's own
handwriting. The evidence originally
appeared to establish conclusively the
fact of a duel. The tirst clue was
the following death notice appearing
111 the Kuropeau edition of the .New
Durant. At Ostentl. P.elgiiuu,
March 3. John MacWilsoti Durant."
The attention of the American con
sulate was called to this and an iu
restitution was immediately oened
which revealed the following tele
gram, written in French, that bid
been received by Durant's betrothed.
Mile. Laure Mangiu yesterday hioiii
iug: "Ostend (undated!. My friend Du
rant is dead. Count H very serious
wounded. Louis Therriott tie Crcrtin."
The signature is the name of one
of Durant's friends, and the supposi
tion is that Durant sent the telegram
Tsll His Girl of a Duel.
Mile. Mangin. who was interviewed
last evenihg. said Durant told her of
his trouble with a Itussian count at
his hotel, and said lie was going to
tight him at, Ostend. He had also
talked freely at the hotd to friends
regarding the alleged coming duel.
Mr .Stevens, of Koston. Mass.. urged
him to abandon the idea and endeav
ored to persuade him to return to the
Vnitetl Stiites with his mother. flMirnnt
replied. "No. it is n question of konor
and I intend to see it through. The
count is coming from Nice and the
encounter will occur M Ostend."
Throughout Saturday he was engaged
in making the tinal arrangements. He
shaved his mustache and declined to
recognize friends whom he met acci
dentally. He left Paris Sunday for
Ostend. whece he sent the tirst let
ter, and took the night boat for Lon
don, sending the second letter on hN
arrival there. The hotel people assert
that some one telephoned Monday and
asked when Durant's body arriTed.
I.OVE AFFAIR AT THE BOTTOSI.
Apparent Reason for the KscnpaiJs Is a
I'p to last evening all the informa
tion tended to show that he had car
ried out his alleged lutein in and been
killed. Doubts arose when a repre
sentative of the Associated Tress, who
had started an investigation at Ostend,
received dispatches assertingthat there
was no trace of a duel in Ostend. that
nothing of the sort had been hird of
by the police, doctors or hotel people,
and that no death had occurred there
of any person named Durant fir "Car
ter." the name under which Durant.
had announced he would travel, or of
any other American.
Durant has been without occupation
ami has lived extravagantly. He had
an apartment at ir Boulevard St.
Michel, to which he sekt the death
telegram addressed to his betrothed.
Mile. Mangin belongs to a poor fakiily.
He introduced her '.among his friends
as his betrothed, ami a notice ap
Iccred in Le Journal. Feb. 10. an
nouncing the betrothal, in which it
was stated that the marriage had been
tiyed for the second fortnight in
March. Possibly he reconsidered this
intention and conceived the duel story
as a loop hole for separation.
A telegram from London says: "Du
rant and his mother were found last
evening at the Kuston hotel. When
interrogated on the subject of the re
port of his death "in a duel at Ostend
he-was greatly taken aback and ex
hibited extreme agitation at thje rerela
tion of his scheme. Finally, resolv
ing upon a frank statement, he ex
plained th.it he had had a serious
quarrel with Mile. Mangin, his be

off relations with her. He said he
considered the best exit from the dif
fieultv would be to die. sir lpast offi

Itussian. which was real, offered the
easiest solution of his entanglement.
Therefore he tooif advantage of this
method of announcing his death.
"When pressed regarding the alleged
duel, he declined to discm the mat
