IIKIIXIIAIIDT'S HULL FIGHT.
An Old Spaniard De-crlbe Saru'r.
NVw York Herald.
"Yes" said the o'.d Spaniard affably,
as he settled himself on one of the sofas
In the lobby of the I-if 111 Aveuue Hole!.
"Sara Dernbardt Is a great actress. I
hate seen her In Pans take an audienc-e
l storm with a glance. There seems to
be a sort -or ir.c-smcr.c influence about her
that is hard to account for. There are a
few things however, that she cau not
mesmerize. One of them Is a bull. I
was in Havana during her visit to that
cite some years ago Scon after her ar
rival I ran across a handbill containing
the information that the divine Kara
would take part In a bull fight the next
You may be sure that all Havana
gathered at the Plaza Del Toros to see
that great Trench actress kill a bull.
Well, the trumpet blew, the matadors,
picadors, capeadors and bandcrllleros came
marching out and took their places around
the ring, aud behind them all came Bern
hardt with the chief matador. -Talk about
the nerve of the new woman! Sara was
pale but composed that Is, until the bull
It was a tearing big black one, with
horns like sabers. It rushed through the
gate In n fiue fury, 1 can tell you. It did
nut waste any time in bellowing or paw
ing the ground, but began to charge right
and left without ceremony.
"Keep behind me and hang to my
coal,' shouted the matador. Smash!
Thump! nnd two horses went down mor
tal gored. Sara was dressed in a sort
of vivnndlere costume, and the way her
slender legs flew around was a caution.
She had been given a red cape and a long
straight sword as a means of defense.
She hod to throw her cape away in order
to hang on to the matador's coat, but
managed to retain her sword.
"The bull Eaw the red cape in the mid
dle of the ring and ripped It to pieces In
a Jiffy. Sara grew pale as she witnessed
the operation, anil Increased her grip on
the matador's jacket. Sofar the bull
had not charged the chief matador. Pretty
soon, from the opposite side of the ring,
he lowered his head and advanced at a
" 'Keep jour nerve now nnd jump when
I do," said the bull fighter to Sara, who
was peering over his shoulder. Flfieen
feet awaj- tlie big bull broke Into a trot
that soon quickened into a gallop. The
matador held out his reel cape and the bull
charged It as quick as a flash.
"The bull fighter sprang to one side
nnd Sara went with him. Then the other
capeadors lured the bull away, leaving
Sara, pale and trembling, clutching the
matador's shoulder with nervousfingers.
Oh, mon Dieu, mon Dleu, take me away,
take me awavl' she cried. It was some
time liefore the matador could comply.
Sev ral times the bull charged, and on one
occasion his horns barely crazed Para's
skirts. Finally, In a moment's respite,
the matadors lifted the actress over the
liarricr and she fell between the fences
as limp as a rag. 'Take me away-from
this awful place," she cried; lt is terrible,
"Since that time Sara hns confined her
eccentricities to sleeping In a coffin or
having snakes for pets."

ECENIE'S HEDGE HOG.
FriineoV Ex-Em pr-Ks,Iiidiil(;eHlnSonie
Empress Eugenie Is reported to be deel
oplng tastes of such an eccentric character
as to give rise to serioj3 doubts about her
mental equilibrium. Thus she is lavishing
the most extravagant care and attention
upon a little hedgehog, which she picked up
in her wanderings abo it her English country
place at Farnborougii.
The velect and satin-lined basket In
which its nest hns been arranged is or silver
gilt, studded with Jewels. Every day the
widowed empress changes the dainty rib
bon with which it is adorned. She talks to
the littleaniinal by the hour, and insists on
taking it about everywhere with her In
her walks, her drives, and even at tab'e.
while at night It slecp3 on a little console
beside her lied.
Her attendants arc becoming seriously
alarmed with regird to her eccentricities,
which are a soJrceot much concern to Queen
Victoria, her firm friend and confidante
since the overthrow of the Napoleonic
regime In France. It Is mainly clue to the
state of the empress' mental health that
the projected trip to Egypt and even the
voyugn to Cape Martin have bee-n aban
doned for the nonce.
The only other Instance on record of a
hedgehog being preserved as a pet by a
distinguished personage Is that of Lord
Rosebery. who, having foand a hedgehog
while walking lu the grounds of bis place al
Epsom afew daysbetorethederbytwoyears
ago, chose to regard it as a mascot, and took
it home Willi him.
The victory ot his horse, Ladas, convinced
biui that he owed his good fortune to the
little beast and since then the lot of the
hedgehog has been almost as happy as that
of the ne adopted by the Empress Eugenie.

The Hrst conlest under the auspices of

was a pronounced success from a spec

Raedy Is well known in local circles, hav

claim that he was put out with a chance
blow anil all they want Is for hhn to haie
a chance to retriee his lost prestige.
That he will have lo have his scrapping
clothw on when he meets "Jersey" there
can be no doubt. Mr. Gordon has a
record to back up his claims to prize light
ing ability that stam him as a worthy
lot-man for Ra edy's best Sunda y -o-to-meet-lug
art In the "square-d circle."
Among the rocmI mon that Gordon has
met are Austin Gibbons, Jack McAullffe,
the Harlem Coffee Cooler, Frank luia worth,
and Paddy Uornian. His fight with Gib
bons is the bright anil particular feather
in his cap that stamps him as a pretty tough
man for Raedy lo go up against. He had
Gibbons all but out In the third round
when the curtain was rung down to sae
him from a knockout.

Insists upon. Eerhanlt sent a telegram
to Joe Vcndlg yesterday explaining that
he would like to box Grirfo iery much,
but would like to hao the conditions of
the match changed to 133 pounds, glee
or take two pounds. The Griffo side
positively refused to accede to this, and
thus the matter stands. The failure of
Grirfo and Everhardt to agree conscqucntly
lcaves a gap in the prospective carnival.

Scheme the elinky-dlnk. Ilercare the words
attributed to him- "I am e-arnestly op
posed to the abindonment of racing by the
L. A. W. I fully appreciate the arguments
made In faor of doing so, but the emestlon
can be squarely met by simplifying the rac

existing condtlioas and thus avoid much of
the pre-sent adcrse criticism. Then, too,
racing looks conspicuous because our more

His In the ILiiiu of Iho Cuxllxt Tarty In
Don Jaime is In this country under an as

prlate letters from Edrope. He is the only
son of Don Carlos and Ui- hope and militant

Don Carlos, since his accession to vast
wealth through the death or his aunt,
the late Comtessede Chambord, and his sec
ondmarriage, his bride beingl'rincess Bertha
de Rohan, to all intents and purposes, has
abandoned the struggle for the throne of
Spain and relinquished hii pretettsiuDi lu..

Don Jaime was educated in England and
received his military education in Austria.
He ls a splmdid cricketer, was captain of
the football team at Stoneyhurst College
and distinguished himself with the sculls on
the Thames. In spite or the decree ot exile
pronojneed against him by the Spanish gov

police were on the lookout for him, he
traveled through the length nnd breadth
of Spain a couple of years ago, visiting
all his father's principal adherents.
On one occasion he even sat beside Prime
Minister Sagasta at a table d'hoteand dis

for his own capture. At another time he
spent an entire morning In visiting the
royal palace at Madrid under the guidance
or a young orflcer of the guard, who fondly
