Upon reaching the Duchess' apartments thoAmbassadors were formally presented, und then nt her invitation sat dawn to play.

The Itcddlng and Wcavcrvillo stage was Mopped by n lono hlghwnyman n few nights ago near what Is known as tho Double 8, two miles out from Hoddiug, Oil. ' The driver, Ed Graham, was called to a halt and ho reined up his team imme diately. Tho masked robber called out: "Drivo up n llttlo farther." Tho team wns started and then pulled up a llttlo farther. Tho robber shouted: " you, I'll shoot." Messenger Ward raised his gnu, nnd as he did so the "highwayman, who was standing on a four-foot embankment about on n level with the driver's scat mid but a few feet distant, II red his revolver nt the driver, tho ball taking effect in the rlelit side under the arm. rnm-imr round and lodging near tho right nipple. The messenger's gun snapped and he dropped it Into tho road, pulled his-rovolvcr, and blared nway over the tup of tho Coach. A (itcondshot was llred by the robber, hut without effect. Hv this timo the fright ened stage team wns nt a dead run, and It Is not known whether Messenger Ward's shot took effect or not. It Ii supposed that tho lilgliwaynnn is well nciiiinlntcd in t lio neighborhood and knew that It was thu "trcasura trip" night, but was unprepared for resistance. Thero wero four passengers aboard, nnd With the exception of tho driver no ono wns injured, although the stngo was con siderably dumaged by thu wild run of tho horses. Graham's wound, whilo not necessarily fatal, is of a. serious nature, and ho probably owes his lire to the quan tity nf thick clothing in which ho was enveloped. One of the passengers says begot a good view of the robber and be lieves from tho way he acted and moved he wns hurt. IIOTKT, AltKIVAI.S. JletiapolltaiiV.ll 'I I Mi, H. 11. Ituell.
