Both Bay Be Kent Them radar i Tlyp notlo Bpell While With Tliein and Made Hum Write Ljlnc Letters ana Act to ult Hiiu. IlABTroRD, Sept. 33. Mrs. Loroy E. Bowon, wifo of a contractor of considera ble wealth, has brought suit against Min nie Kurzman, divorced wife of Lawyer Jacob Kuruunu of 13 Wall street. New Sork city, for f'J.VOOo damages for alien ting tho affections of hor husband. Mrs. Kurzman announces that she will bring suit at once against Mr. Bowi-n for fSO.OOO for breach of promise. Each woman tells an amazing story, making Mr. Boweu out a hypnotic expert, worthy to take rank with Sveiijjali. Ia the affidavit attached to her petition Mrs. Boweu says that she was bora in tho Village of Brockton, Mass., and that her name before marring was Julia Alice Webber, liowen lived there, won her heart and lxiarriod her a few years ago. From Frock ton they removed to Savannah, and last March to Hartford, whore Mr. Bowon has offices in the BallcrsUin building. They lived in becoming style, and Mr. IJowen scorned very proud of his pretty young wife. But she now says that ever since they wore married he has exercised a hypnotio intluence over her, so that when lie was near she thought and did exactly .is he Willed. She says he had the habit of mak ing her think that she was not legally his wife. As soou as he left her side she would tako out. hor marriage oerl ideate to reas sure herself. She says he never used this remarkable power to any seriously harm ful end until about two years ago. His Will llulod Two Women. Then he met Mrs. Kurrmau. who lived In Sixty-tlrst street, in New York city. Her husband had just got a divorce from hor. Mrs. Boweu says that she long sus pected that something wrong between Mrs. Kurzman and Mr. Bowen, and a year ago she accused him of improper re lations with the other woman. She says hor husband said to her: "You have no right to find fault. You are not my wife, as you know very well. I never married you. You are only ray mistress.'' And she alleges that, so com pletely was her mind uiuler his rulj. she a', once believed he was speaking the truth. Ho went away on long journeys, ar.d. she says, as soon as lie was tono her mind reasserted itself, and she realised tliut he was hypnotizing her. A month ago he left her for several days, and she found in the pocket of odo of his coats a letter in a Woman's handwriting, reading thus: "Thanks, dear Koy, for the diamonds. I hare announced our engagement to th World, and nil my spare time is spent In making and selecting pretty things with which to decorate our home. We'll bo so happy when we are m:u-ried, dear Koy. Your photograph is before me as 1 write, and your dear eyes seem to pierce my very soul. Minnie.'' This letter, Mrs. liowen says, tilled her With indignation. She sat down and straightway wrote to "Minnie," whos.' name she alrendy knew and whose New York address was in the letter. She told Mrs. Kurzman that she was being de ceived, that Mr. liowen was already mar rled. In a few days she got a letter from Mrs. Kurzman, saving that Mr. Ho wen Was with her as she was writing and hwi convinced her that he was not married, but that the letter had been writtor. by his mistress. Mrs. Bowen says sli had hardly go: Mrs. Kux.nian's letter before Mr. Howt n himself arrived. At once he ostabli;oo' his hypaotlo despotism. She showed him Mrs. Kurman's letter. He smilingly said : "Sit down and write her the truth." Mrs. Bowen says she sat down, with Mr. Boweu bending over her, and at once Wrote at his dictation what he wished he: to say to the woman he hoped to marry. The Victim Meet and Tttlk. Last week Mr. Bowen went away again, and Mrs. Bowen, released from the hyp notio spell and remembering what she bad done, consulted some of her friends. They wrote at once to Mrs. Kurzman. Mrs. Kurzman hastened to Hartford, arriving last TbUFsday. She was accompanied by Mrs. Ray Brooks, hor friend. Mrs. Bowen and Mrs. Kurzman met, and, Mr. Bowon not being present, had a talk entirely ire. from hypnotic influences. Then Mrs. Kurzman told her story. Sho aid that ever sir.ee liowen lirst Jmot her she, too, had boon entirely under his dom ination. She said that he put her into hypnotic trances, and that when she re covered, which she always did as soon as be went away, she had no memory o! what had passed. She could only suspect what had happened from the circumstances' surrounding her. For instance, she said, she once remem bered being with him and then remem bered nothing for three days, wheu she came to herself, and found that he and she bad been living to-rother at the Hotel Bcrosfnfd, Long Branch, and that he had Just gone away. She also found that sac had bought a cottage ut Long Branch, for whioh she had no use. On s-overal oeca ions he lived with her in her house in Sixty-nrst street for several days, she be ing all tl while in a hypnotic trance. She said that as soon as he got away from her her abortion would gradually cool, and her letters to hini w, r.ld be less and less frequent. Then he would come to her, and at once her will, her thoughts. Were absolutely his, so that she did and thought exactly as he pleased. Mrs. Bowen listened to this story with believing and sympat hetie ears. She eouhi understand it all very easily on account of her own experiences. Mrs. Kurzman heard Mrs. Bower's sto ry, and, realizing it truth, promised to renounce Mr. Bowen forever. The two women were still together, according to Mrs. Bowon's statement, when Mr. liowen camo upon the scene. She says he said nothing to either, but lis she looked a; him she began to think that she was not his wife, and again told Mrs. Kurzman so He still did cot speak, but she felt that he must go to the railway station. She waited there, ho following hor. Ho stood behind h-r, and she bought a ticket for Brockton. She says she remembers notii ing after that until sho found herself in ber brother's house in North Brockton. Tho brother, who simply thought his sis tot had suddenly como to visit him. heard witn amazement- tno story sne who., now that she wus out of the hypnotio tranco. II o was inclined to think that Mrs. Kurzman was deceiving his sister. He took the first train Friday for Hartford, and. arrived there, held a long consulta tion, with Lawyer Toohey. Through that lawyer Mrs. Powen brought suit against Mrs. Kurzman for $05.01)0, it having been learned that Mrs. Kurzman had a fortune of at least $100,000. Mr. Boweu left Hartford on Friday night, and Saturday morning Mrs. Kurz man had again ohangod her mind. fhe became aware, so she said, that Mr. Boweu was deceiving her, and she at once took measures to punish him.

THE GUBAJSJpK HER. A TOSPEDO, NOT A COLLISION, SENT THE SPANISH WARSHIP DOWN. The Seal Cansa of the IMsaster to the Corcastegul Bald to Have fleea Concealed by the Press Censor at SaTana Sow It 'Was Dodo, PRitADKLPniA, Fepf. S3. An entirely different explanation of tho sinking of tho Spanish cruiser Borcastegui and the loss of 4ti lives in the harbor of Havana oh lasi Wednesday night is made in letters re ceived in this oity by a distinguished member of the Cuban revolutionary party. According to the news telegraphed from Havana tho day aftor, tho catastrophe was due to a collision between the Cruiser and tho merchant steamer Mortera. It is now stated as an absolute fact that the Borcas tegui was sunk by a floating torpedo launched by an adventurous party of Cu bans. The Cuban leader who received the letter said : "The Spanish government knows full well what sunk their best cruiser in tho Cuban water and sent to their deaths Admiral Delngode Parejo, in command of the Spanish navy in Cuban waters, seven officers nnd 34 men. We know here that before tho dispaioh relating to the acci dent was sent it was carefully edited by the press oensor. Au American Made the Torpedo. "The advices which I have received say that on Monday night a party of ten Cu bans, under the command of Captain Car los Enrique, left Guautanama in a steam launch, which is tho recent invention of an American. It was an ingenious de vice, so constructed that it could be launch ed some distance away from tho object aimed to bo destroyed, and then by a piece of clockwork exphnled in about 15 min utes after it was sent out. The little party on the steam launch had received these torpedo launches only a week before. Captain Enrique selected A point about 200 yards from the war vessel from which to la u nob. tho torpedo. It was slipped out, and as soon ns it was gone Captain Enrique gave orders to steam away as rapidly ns possible. The work of the torpedo was even more speedy than anticipated. Not five min utes elapsed before it oxploded with a loud report that was heard several miles away, rrom what those on the boat say it. must have gone off about 50 feet away from the cruiser and struck her on the starboard side. It is true that the merchant steamer Mortera was near tho war vessel at the time, and that she, too. suffered damage. but it was not serious by any means, and if tho men on board of hor had kept their heads they might have saved some of the lives of those on board of tho Spanish cruiser. Warship Was After Fillhtuters. TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 23. Tho Spanish newspapers nrriving tonight from Cuba state that several companies of the regi ment of Havana have joined the Insur gents.

Colonel Kurique Collazo left here Thursday night, presum ably for New York, but ho stopped at Jacksonville and has been traced to Oca la. Tho opinion is that he goes to Cedai Keys in quest of the arms that wers seized there. Held Criminal Conrt on Snnday. BirtMHiGEAM, Ala., Sept. 23.

In commrmttng upon the contest in Now 1 ork on Satur day between the teams of tho Loudoa Athletic club and the New York Athletic club, The Standard says: "It is impossi ble to conceive of anything more disne trous than the experience of tho English athletes. It would be preposterous to at tempt to explain away such a defeat. Even if all of our best men had boon pres ent and in tho finest condition they would have stood little chance against opponeutB who showed such unquestionable superior ity. The Americans probably have tbo finest team of athletes that the world has ever seen. No true sportsman will be grudge them the unqualified praise to which they nro justly entitled." The Dally News says: "It is a comfort to feel that ono has been beaten fairly. The victory of tho New York Athletic club was no chance victory. The more wc have of these eoutoaUs tho better.

This little story is going tho rounds to point tho moral when nn orator claims that women have until now been kept shiulded from business cares and from the hard side of life. When the orator struck an attitude and exclaimed "Wonld that you would hit nsso protect yon now nnd forever, "r. clever little woman responding tells tho story of Ohadiuh and his spouse. Tho farmer's wife was about to l.o gathered in by the grim harvester, death, and she said: 'Obadiah, you have been a kind hus band to me. You havo dono all you could to make my life comfortable and happy. Wo have been married !b years, mid ever sinco we have been married you have eaten all the bread crusts so that I would not have to eat them. Haiu't you, Obadiah?" "Yec, Lueiiidy, I have." "Obadiah.it was very kind of you, and now yon won't mind my telling yon o' one thing, will yon?"' "No, Lucindy. Wbat is it?" "Oba diah" and there was a world of eelf abnegation in her voice "Obadiah, I always was very foud of bread crusts." And now that we are just passing from the old life into a new era you won't m;nd our telling you cue thing, will you? Yon don't mind our telling yon that we have, many of us, been really fond of the bread crusts of life which you lutve ao generoqsAy. taten, CLOSE OF THE MISSION. Imjirosi-.lve Scene in the Pacretl Hear Chnreli Last livening. The mission which has been going oi in the c huivii of the Sacred Heart to. two weeks, closed on Sunday evening An overflowing congregation, compose exclusively of men. solemnly renewet their baptismal vow s, on the eonclusiot of a very fervid sermon preached b h at her IJvan on tin tvraniiv of passioi au i the glorious liberty that belongs t the true child of Ooii, who, rejoicing h toe privilege oi owing allegiance ouli to Jesus Christ, rising superior to tht false customs of the world, to its vah pomps ami transient pleasures, lives U to tin T -ure and peace giving gospo. standard. It was a spectacle not easily to be fop gotten to see that vast body of men standing with intense sincerity deplete in their every feature, and hear theil fervent professions of adhesion to thell l!odec;ncr, ;o his sacred teachings and his sublime ir.oraliiy. Otte huia'.re;! ami twenty handed in cards signifying their desire to be en rolled as members of the Holy Nam soeiciy, which is a determination on their part, to live up with special exactness to tin '.r Catholic duties. Two hundred and twenty joined the Total Abstinence society ami ninny hundreds were enrolled in the Scapular of Our Lady of Mouut Carniel. These t-.umorr :is af.givgr.'.ions to the various parish societies are not, how ever, to be regarded as the only proofs of the sueeessfulness of the mission. Far solider evidence which the Catholic eye alone can appreciate or even per ceive, was all'o-dcd by the vast numbers who approached the sacraments nearly i wo thousand. More than this, the lathers conducting the mission and the pastor know of still stronger evi dence, in tile intense earnestness of those participating. Father Treauor is tho happiest of men, and Fathers Smith and Kvan, though much fatigacd, share in his happiue-s ocr the great, blessings showered on the palish.
