THE WIFE'S .MISTAKE.
How Prejer Wns Tnkrn for n Child
nnd Petted According).
John 'William Preyer, the famous
painter of still life, was a remarkably
small specimen of the genus homo, dif
fering, however, from ordinary dwarfs
In the symmetry and exact proportion of
all the parts of his diminutive
frame, says an exchange. AVhen
between twenty and thirty years
of age his fresh, ruddv and beardless
face, and the shrill and boyish tone of
his voice, caused people to take him for
a child of about eight at the most. This
Illusion was still further heightened by
his dress a short black velvet Jacket
with a large turn-down collar, over
which his smoothly ported hair hung In
thick clusters when about this age
Preyer paid a visit to Munich In order
to Inspect the art treasures In that city,
nnd also to visit his old patron, "Mas
ter" Cornelius, a former President of
the Dusseldorf Academy. When Preyer
called at the house of the latter he had
gone out, nnd the servant who had
answered the door ran In to tell her
mistress that a little boy was waiting
outside to see the master. The lady
went to speak to the visitor.
"What fs It ou want, my child?" she
asked the painter, who, at the approach
of the lady, took oft his velvet cap and
made a deep bow, saying In a shrill
"I wish to speak to Mr. Cornelius."
"He Is not at home at present; but If
you will step Inside you can wait for
him; he will not be long."
So saying, she took the little fellow
Into the parlor and offered him a stool
to sit on. In a short time the fair
hostess became quite charmed with her
youthful visitor, and at last she lifted
him on her lap and listened with Intense
delight to the Innocent prattle of the
clever "child " Suddenly the door
opened and Cornelius himself appeared.
Taking In the situation at a glance, he
"Ah! Good morning, Mr. Preyer.
How on earth did )Ou get here?"
"Mr Preyer!" and with a shriek Mrs
Cornelius Jumped up, tumbled Preyer on
tho floor and fled Into the next room,
while Cornelius and Pre)er, after the
latter had picked himself up again,
laughed till the tears streamed down
their cheeks The former had some dif
ficulty In getting his wife to come back
again At last she mustered sufficient
courage to allow herself to be formally
Introduced to the strange visitor, who
was retained as a guest to dinner, over
which the amiable hostess presently re
gained her former self-possession.

NO DHL FOR MISS OEMPSEY.
But Her Lawyer May Sooaro
Her Eoloaso To-Day.
Warden Fox Bays She Seems Con
tented In Jail.
Miss Lavlnla It, Dempsey, who Is In
Ludlow Street Jail pending the deposit
of S2.00 ball bonds, had not succeeded
In obtaining tho necessary documents
up to noon to-day. She was nrrested
Tuesday In the suit of Miss Emma L.
Everson, typewriter In the office of
Miss Lavlnla's brothers, Guy C. and
John Alrcl Dempsey, lawyers, with
offices In the Stewart Building. Miss
Everson wants J10,000 damages for false
Imprisonment and malicious persecu
tion. Miss Dempsey refuses lo accept the
aid ot her brothers. She sa)a they are
In league with MIsn Everson against her.
Miss Dempsey would see no reporters
this morning, but Warden Fox sa)s she
teems to be perfectly contented with her
present lot, and Is showing no particular
r.nxlety to secure her rtleaie.
"We nre taking good care of her," said
the Warden, 'ana she Is Just as com
fortable as If .ihe was In her own home.
"Of toursc, she had to be locked up In
her cell. Just like the other prisoners,
during the ntght, but she didn't seem to
mind that at all.
"This morning her lawyer, Allen Mc
Dermott, from Jersey City, camo over
to see her, and they had a long talk to
gether He Is with her now, and from
what Miss Dempsey told me early this
morning she expects to be released to
day." The ball fixed by Judge Bookstaver
was $2,000, and Miss Lavlnla, who has
plenty of money and considerable prop
erty over in New Jcrse), Is determined
to accept no aid In getting out of her
present predicament, especially from
her brothers, as long as she Is able to
furnish the ball herself.
Last night her brothers visited her nt
the Jail and offered to go on her bon 1,
It Is said, on condition that she would
sign a release to a certain mortgage
for $50,000, but she Indignantly refused
to have anything to do wltn them.
At the law olrlce of the Dempsey
brothers. In the Stewart Building, this
morning, It was said by the clerk In
charge that they had given orders to
admit no reporters, and to say that
they would have nothing more to do
with their sister's case She had re
fused to accept their assistance, and as
she had retained a law)cr. she could
probably take care of herself.
Miss Everson, the pretty typewrltei
and stenographer, was on hand, and
seemed In control of things in the oute:
office. She evidently has no fear that
the Messrs. Dempsey will dismiss her
from their emoloy, even if their sister
does demand It.
She Is, In fact, being hacked up by
them In her suit against Miss Dempsey
to this extent, that they became her
sureties on the undertaking for J2M each
on which their slBter was arrested.
She refused to have anything to say
to reporters this morning In regard to
hei suit against Miss Dempsey, but It
was easy to see from her determined
air that she was going to fight It to the
bitter end Her lawyer Is Christopher
Fine, of 114 Nassau street.

Prince Conslnntlne Wlnsemsky
Tells of llnre Adventures.
Prince Constantlne Wlisemsky, the
celebrated Russian traveller, is In Paris
after his Journey of 43 000 kilometers, or
26.700 miles, around about Asia, writes
the Paris correspondent of an ex

thirty-eight years old Intends to give a
fu.l account of his travels shortly, but a
brief narrative of his Far Eastern wan
derings has already appeared In print.
He left Moscow In July, 1891, and re
turned In December, 1893
The first part of the Journey was made
In a trorka through Siberia. Then the
Prince purchased a dozen horsed, and
accompanied by Zarembo, an Interpre
ter, a photographer, a cook and a few
Cossacks he entered Mongolia.
The party avoided the villages as much
as possible, being In dread of hostile en
counters They were, nevertheless, once
attacked by the Mongolian tribes, and

After a peaceful exploration of South
ern China the travellers entered Tonkin
traversed Anam, and reached Slam,
whence they went to India. Prince Wla
semsky arlved In Calcutta In February,
1893 .and after three months' stay start
ed for Kashmir and crossed the Himal
ayas. In Thibet the Prince learned among
other secrets that of being able to do
without food or drink for a certain pe
riod of time. He flattens himself that he
is the only European who knows this
useful trick, which he learned from the
Buddhist bonres, and Intends to keep for
himself. All he will say on the matter
Is that such experiments cannot be tried
without engendering a great deal of fa
tigue The Russian traveller fared very badly
In TurkiMtan, where he was attacked

by a band of caravan robbers, who stole
hla collection of curiosities, his baggage
and his provisions. For a tortnlghthe and

robbers and reached Kashgar, where he
Informed the Russian Consul of the
Prince's desperate situation. Forty Cos
sacks were accordingly sent to the res
cue nnd freed him.
The traveller next started for Pervli.
and at Teheran was warmly welcomed
by the Shah, who said to him: "I thought
that I was the greatest traveller In the
world, but you have beaten me."
Prince Wlasemsky by no means Interds
to rest on the laurels which he has
gained by his Asiatic explorations, and
announces his Intention of traversing
Africa from Egypt or Tripoli to the
Zambesi, ifter he has made a pilgrimage
to Mount Athos, or the Holy Mountain.
