Cox Again Telling tlio Story of Ills Crime.
Ken York Sun, Jiint'2't.
"Now tell me all about tho murder,” the
Sun reporter said to Cox, " What had you been
doing on Tuesday, the 10th lost. I”
With apparent good humor tho colored man
began tho long story.”
" 1 had been to work,” sstd he; " I had lAen
doing a little carpenter work, and bad been lay
ing carpets. Oao place where I did a Job was In
Fifteenth street, No. 12, Ithlnk;onyway I made
$3, and wcut home at 0 o’clock, tired out. 1 laid
down and slept until about 10 o’clock at night.
Theu 1 gotup and walked In Sixth avenue, where
1 saw Officer Scbmlttbcrgcr talking to a mau on
tbo corocr of Thirty-sccoud street, and 1 also
rambled along In Madison avenue, Filth avenue,
and at last got to Forty*secoudstrcetnnd Broad
way, and from there reached Dr. Hull’s house.
The street was quiet. Acker, Mcrroll, and
Coadlt’s watchman was not lu sight. Then
1 thought of robbing the house for the first
time. I ran up the stoop and tried a key that
1 had, but It would oat work In the lock. It
broke and I filing it away right In the street In
front ot the door. I dtsromembcr rackly when
I found tliat koy or how I -got It, but I thought
may bo it would fit the door. Well, 1 give up
all idea of robbing (be house, but as I come
down tho steps I seen the light from the street
was shining strung on the window, and I seen
that the catch on the window was tying along
side of the glass Insttd of sticking out, as It
should. 1 climbed over the railing of tbo stoop
and tried the window. First i pulled the upper
part dowu. Then I pushed It up again, and
pulled up the lower part.”
The prisoner, us ho told this talc, talked easi
ly, pronouncing each word deliberately and
with the monuor of a person anxious that his
hearer should gain exact Information, and
should understand It thoroughly os the story
proceeded. All the lima ho was polite and mod
est,
“ When I pushed up the window,” ho contin
ued, "i first looked around, and, seeing no one
in the street, 1 stepped Injnustlly, am), pulling
down tlm window, 1 locked it. There wan a
stand and In that a big vase lu the window,
uml these I pushed aside. 1 stepped right
Into the room, and I guess I stood
still full two minutes. As 1 stood there
1 heard heavy breathing. It grew on mo as I
listened, until 1 felt sure It was a mau, and that,
Unit mau was right In the next room. I wasn’t
a bit afraid. IVbat had 1 to be afraid of! I
didn’t mean to harm any one. I meant to get
the Jewelry and go right away. 1 did a good
deal of thinking. I knew Mrs. Hull usen’t to
sleep down stairs, bat it seemed to me 1 had
beam she was sleeping down stairs at this
time. 1 crept soltly to tho sliding doors be
tween tho front room and the dining-room.
These doors were closed. 1 shoved mein opart
the distance of throe Inches. 1 lit a match, and
Us first Haro lighted up tho dining-room.
Clothes wero lying there, and I was afraid
the breathing was there, i closed the sliding
doors softly, walked'back to the parlor door,
opened Uio front doors such a little ways Una
no one could see they was open, and went to
Urn dining-room hall-door. 1 opened that, lit a
match, and saw that tho breathing was In the
little back room. I began to look for what 1.
wanted iu the bureaus, but didn’t find anything.
1 hoard the lady moving In bed. 1 lit the candle
1 bad with mo ami held It to the doorway, so
that all jta light went ou the bed ami none of It
went on to rny face. I seen the lady, and knew
who she was. The light troubled her, mid 1
seen she was going to wnko up. I sprung ou
the bed mid pinioned her.”
Then followed Uio stoiy Uiat has already been
published. Close questioning led to on elabora
tion of some parts of It. He opened tho little
glass door by tbo bedside to hear whether any
one stirred la the house. When she tabled, he
closed this door to tho position In which he
found it—three Inches open. His face was dose
tellers. She said: '• Who Is 1:1” He replied:
"Thu Doctor.” She pressed her hand on his
face and screamed. Ho stifled the scream, and
It ended In a groan. In a low voice she man
aged to say: “Tukowbul you like, hue don’t
murder me.” Ho put his mouth even nearer
to her car, mid replied, os ho says, “ in a gentle
voice:” “ 1 ain’t agoing to bun you, madame.”
Cox says he was In the house but thirty-live
minutes, and ho thinks he entered at midnight.
The police have witnesses that place Uio time
more accurately. Mr#. Fitzpatrick wrote to
soma ono in Dr. Hull’s household that she was
awake mid ill In bed, and was attended by a
nurse. She Heard Mrs. Hull scream, and heard
the moaning that followed. The nurse said it
wss u eat, and advised Mrs. Fitzpatrick to take
her medicine. Bho looked at the clock. It was
just 3tn the morning. A doctor overhead, and
a person that had returned late from Uie the
atre, corroborate this.
Cox declares Unit when ho was rifling the
trunk ho thought Mrs. Hull was “tooquiet.”
lie feared she was going Into another fit of
fainting, and ho says she fainted when ho snoko
tuber, iio remembered Uio cologne bottle In
Hie dining-room. ilo k bathed her forehead with
cologne, look, the bandage oil her eyes, and
lighted a match to look at her. Thu cologne
flamed up, mid ho put out the fire with his open
hand. Jlo poured tce-wator ou her puck, mid
rubbed It with his hands. tiho was breath
ing slowly mid very peculiarly; her heart
was beating very rapidly; her limbs moved.
He carried no arms of any sort, and had
nothing at hand In the rooms for defense or
murder. He did not leave the front doors
open, neither did lie shut them tight. That
would have made a uolao. Leaving Mrs. Hull
breathing, and, us he thought, "coming to,”
ho left the house rapidly, bringing the frost
doors together gently behind him. He sup
poses that the wind blew them open. Ho wont
to his homo In- Thirty-sixth - street,
wearing his overalls and common clothes,
but attracting no attention. Bo laid
Uie plunder on his hpd, and
looked at U lover and over again. He thinks
Umt he spent half an hour thus employed.
Then he went to sleep, and "slept good all
night.” The next day he walked around town,
and during tho day he bought the shoes be now
wears. They cost $3. At night— this was
Wednesday, Uie lltn—ho was at tho lileecksr
street house, where Bella Johnson lives. He
has known Holla a long while, and at first used
to caution her to bo a good girl; hut ho after
ward took her to the house of Dr. JUcli, where
she passed as his wife.
" 1 seldom go down in the neighborhood ol
the Bleeckor street house,” said Cox, *• because
the colored people Uicre are violent, rough peo
ple, and I don't want nothing to do with such
people. I went to bed. Bella was going out.
She seen Uio lady’s watch mid long chain, uml
asked mo for them. I told her 1 couldn’t give
them to her, but 1 would lend them to her. tine
put them and the rings on, and went out. tiho
visited round In the neighborhood. She didn't
know what tho things was, or how I got ’em. 1
told her 1 bought 'em second-hand. I stayed
till morning.”
it was in the morning (Thursday) that ho was
told of the murder by tho Eighth aveuue car*
driver. He savs: " when bo said the IttJy was
dead the blood rushed up to ray head Hue it was
shut I hero by a cannon. Mv heart beat so as to
bo heard teu feet away. It was the Hist fear 1
had kuuwn. it seemed to me tho maifc must
suspect me.” I
"How much money did you get by the rob*
berv, altogether)” the reporter asked.
"Well, I gut $33.50 tn money,, S3O on the
cluster ring In Now York (Bella pawned it for
me), $1.50 for (he cameo sot and the lung chain
from titeruoerg, $lO (or thu solitaire ring from

"And how much have vouuut now)”
" Ob. I ain’t got anr money now.**»'

oner In his usual lone of Voice.
“ Do you tnlnk sol”
“Yes,” replied the murderer, "l i’poss so.
f know what do law says. It says I took a life,
and do penally Is death. J wouldn’t be be
lieved If I said to the low that 1 didn’t mean to
kill her—that I wouldn’t hurt her for anything.
The law rays I shall be hung, and I suppose I
wilt. 1 don’t want to die that way. 1 don’t
see how I will he able to stand It. I never
could sum! such tilings.' When I was In tho
army, I was detailed three times to witness
exeentions—all of them hangings/ 1 didn’t see
them.”
"You turned your head away!”
" No, salt; 1 simply didn’t go. Twice I was
very severely punished for not ’baying orders,
hut I couldn't stand the sight, and nothing
could make me. I couldn’t never bear seeing
anr ode in pain,—never. 1 never hurt an in
sect purposely.” 1
“ You were arrested coming out of church,
where yon heard a powerful sermon on Hell.
Did Umt Impress you. In such a manner Uiat you
felt better to confess!” : *
"No; 1 don’t ’elder that tbe sermon pressed

No; that sermon didn’t seem to worry me. I’m
used to ’em. But did you know about my
dream! I call it u arcam. 1 don’t know what
It was,—lt was a kind of feeling, 1 guess.’’
" Why, coming hack from Now York on the
‘dollar boat,’ I was up afl night. 1 was a listen
ing to some young fellows—white men—a sing
ing on the deck. I listened to them till very
late, and then I came lo mid went to bed, and 1
noticed [ didn’t sleep. I was kinder restless
like. Well, all of a sudden 1 seen myself, ami i
seemed to see a crowd. They was very angry,
ami they had bold ol roe. That’s all 1 seen,—
Just this crowd. Everyman In the crowd was
a strange man. their faces wns strange to roe,
except this gentleman (Detective Scbmlttber
gcr). He was there. lie seemed to have bold
of me.” T
“ You were frightened,” the reporter sug
gested.
" No, sir,” replied Cox, " 1 wasn’t frightened,
’ccpt that one minute when the car-driver asked
me did I ecu Unit thing In the paper about Mrs.
Hull being murdered. That was the only time.
I’ vo slope well and ate hoartr and felt all right.
Don’t you see, It’s dlitercnt than If 1 meant to
kill the lady. Then 1 might have felt bad; bat
1 didn’t have no idea of ever hurting her. You
seen her, did you! Well, then, you know I
didn’t bruise her nor bit her nor leave
no scars. If I had gone to hart any one I’d
have carried something lo do It with. I went
without nnv weapon or anything. Why, they
say her Ungers were torn where I took oil the
rings. Now them rings came oil easy. I bad
long nails,—same ns now (they have not been
cut), mid I Just picked them rings olf easy. My
nails must have scratched her. Since I was ar
rested I haven’t been so comfortable. I w&a
afraid some one would try to kill me In Jail In
Boston. I was afraid of CapLWlUlaQiß. 1 heard
so much against him. But I never felt any hor
ror or any feeling that I dune any other wrong
than robbing the lady.”
Caul. Williams was again watching the negro
closely. “ Toll me,” said he, “ bow you killed
her and how yon bound her to tho bed. ‘ You
tied her down first!”
" Yes, when she fainted,” the colored man re
plied. “ 1 held her down with ’my knees, and
fust rested a littlo on her chest. 1 had one bund
over ber muutb mid nose, uud 1 took up tho
sheet uml held it in my other band while 1 tore
it with my teeth. I out Umt bandage around
tier mouth, she a-shaklug ber head one side and
Uie other.”
•* Did you take the bandage oft her eyes when
you lit the mutch and tho cologne flamed up!”
the Captain asked. '
••No, sail,” thu negro replied; but he caught
sight ol a peculiar irlanco the Captain directed
towards another olllcer, and lie added: " I duu
no: mobbu 1 took the bandage oil her eyes. I
was excited uml was working quick, und 1 don't
jus’ ’zactly ’member. I; know I tore off two
bondages with my teeth, uud put one oa her
mouth uml onu on her eyes.”
"How did that dress gel on her neck!” tbe
reporter asked.
“Dress!” the negro .repealed; "I don’t
know nothing about no dress.”
“ But ono was around her neck,” the reporter
persisted.
“Well; then,” Cor refilled, “It must have
been that dress what fell down. Something
Umt was.a hanging up fell down, I-remember.
Guess Uiat must have been it.”
“ You tied her elbows first and then ber
Impd* afterward,” said Copt. 'Williams.
" Yos, sail, so I dld;”roplled Cox.
" You had to roll her over to tie her elbows,”
the Captain added. » ,l
“ No, salt,” replied Cox. •. "You see she wasn’t
a layhi’ straight dowu on her . back. She was a
little to one side, undT, slipped the bandage
under her. und got her'filbows tied that way.
“ You tied her elbows with some suspenders,”
said Copt. Williams. ■ -v
“Did II” the.uegro 1 replied; “did II” He
scorned pleased to remember Uie little details.
“Wbe.'c did you get those suspenders!” the
Captain atked.
“I idektd them up from tho floor.”
"Did you tie ber wrists with the same stuff as
tho oilier bandages were made of!” tho Captain
asked.
“Yes, sab; tbo same stutf,” the colored man
replied. It was evident'the Captain knew hot
ter.
" How about that knot ou the ankle nearest
the duorl You bad to go outside to tie that,
didn’t you!”
"No, sab.” replied tho colored man; "I tied
that while 1 was on the bed.”
“ But U was an outside knot,” said tho Cap
tain.
*> I don’t know nothin’ about that,” said Coz.
“ 1 know I tied it while she was a-struggllog,
ami I was ou the bed.”
. "No, voadidn’t,” said tbe Captain sternly.
“ She was not stirring when vou tied her. The
limbs showed that. Thera was not a bruise or
mark of the bandage on bur. She sever moved
after she was tied.”
“ Yes, sir,” said the negro, as If patiently en
deavoring to make the story as clear as possible,
and betraying no agitation; “her logs were
moving up and down, up and down, after alio
was tied. I know ; Uio bandages were loose.”
But thu Captain did not bellevo Uio man.
“Did you light the candle you hod In your
pocket wncu Uio cologne on her face caught
the!” CapU Williams aked. (Uwfil bo remem
bered UiutcumllO'irrease was found on thosleovo
of Mrs. Hull’s nightdress.!
“No,sab,” replied the colored man. "I lit a,
match.”
“You lighted a good many matches in ber
room,” said the reporter.
“No, sab,” Cox replied. "Idon’b think I lit
more than one.”
" Many were found,” the reporter sold.
." Was they!” Cox asked, apparently Interested
ogsln.
“ When did you use the pillow!”
"1 didn’t u*o no pillow,” Cox replied.
“ But one was found with blood on It!”
" Was U! I don't know nothing about that,”
said Cor.
In spite of these discrepancies In the colored
man’s story ot the murder, the detectives, who
Uud been hit companions for two days und
nights, believe him to bu telling the truth, una
thev think it only natural that he should forget
the minor details. They have heard hfs confes
sion over and over again, [the reporter heard
it two or three timua.J Yet they have never
caught Jilin omitting or adding details, or con
tradicting tho original story.

SEBTIA AND BULGARIA.
The Origin of the Dispute Between Them.
The difference between Bulgaria and Servla
about Uie continued occupation by the latter of
•a number of Tillages on the frontier districts
which, In conformity with the lino of frontier
drawn by the treaty, ought to belong to Bul
garia, have, says the Vienna correspondent of
the again become acute. The
International Commission of Delimitation ar
rived on the spot on Jane 5, and the defloltlvc
frontier line Is to be fixed. Both sides are,
therefore, exerting themselves to bring about a
decision In their favor. The' wording of the
treaty (a so clearly In favor of the Bulgarians
that the Servians could scarcely hope to gala
their cause. On the strength of being in pos
session they have sot to work to enlist the sym
pathies of the population of the occupied dis
tricts In their faror, and, although the people
are almost exclusively Bulgarians, they seem to
have already completely succeeded. It may be
remembered that the regulation of the frontier
between Bulgaria and Berrla gave to the latter
thu district of Flrot. This was a sort of com
pensation for Uie district of Novo-Bsxar, which
the Treaty of SaoStelspo. claimed for Benia,
but which the Treaty of,-ißeriln gave back to
Turkey. While consenting to this compromise
Russia was naturally anxious to restrict the
concession os much as possible, and the line of
frontier was drawn as closely os it could be to
Firot without much regard to the topographical
features of the country, so that os a well de
fined frontier It Is anything but satisfactory.
Thus, in spite of the wording of the treaty, Uie
case of the Servians was so olouslblo tlmt it led
to a difference among the Commissioners them
selves. The case seems to be turning against
the Servians, as although the news has been re
ceived from Bulgaria that several thousand peo
ple from thu district* in dispute have appeared
before the Commission of DollmltaUon to pro
test against the cession of their territory to Bui-
Stria, and that thu leaders ot the dcmoustraUoo
avo sent petitions to the signatory Towers ask
ing to bo united to Bervia; on the other bund,
from Sophia comes Uie news that Prince Don
doukoS-Korsukott addressed, on the iWd of May,
an energetic note to the Servian Government
summoning it to evacuate within fifteen days
the territory so unlawfully occupied and to
withdraw within the limits fixed clearly enough
bv the treaty. Messages such as this nave been
addressed repeatedly by the Bulgarians to thu
Servian Government and have led to much un
nrofliablo correspondence; but as a date Is now
fixed, It looks as it the Imperial Hussion Com
missioner was sure of thu support of the Com
mission of Delimitation. The opposition made
bv the population ot the disputed districts to an
annexation with Bulgaria bos boon increased by
thu apprehension that they havoadvancud them
selves too much, and may thercloro be exposed
to reprisals If the Bulgarian Government was
established there.

Shanghai, May *2o.—flic reception of Ocn.
Grunt at this commercial Capital of Eastern
Alia is proving ttio grand event of the season, if
not In the history of the city.
Thu lance warehouse of the China Merchants*
Stcom-Navigatlon Company, lying just above
the French Bund, bad been cleared of traflic
and appropriately fitted up u & reception-room
at the landing. The floor around three sides
had been raised In the form of an amphi
theatre, and all covered with fresh Chinese
matting. Beats for 800 foreign residents and
native officials were all filled, or should have
been. The people were iu the room, each
with bis seat courteously provided and assigned,
hut nearly 200, mostly yoang Englishmen,
Insisted on standing around in tire space which
had been reserved for the reception ceremony.
They are so accustomed in these foreign settle
ments to be a law unto themselves, and to
despise and nttcrly disregard oil municipal and
social regulations, tlmt tins Committee found It
impossible on their account to maintain respect
able order, and to carry oat at all satisfactorily
the really admirable arrangement for Gen.
Grant's reception at the landing.
Ail the shipping In the river was covered with
bunting. Flags of all nations ornamented the
Bund. Thu arrival of the United States steamer
Ashuelot, with the municipal guest aboard, had
been telegraphed from GutzlaiT at the mouth
of the Ypqcsil, ninety miles distant, early in
morning. Against the strong current of the
mlgbtv river the steamer could not roach
Woaatimr, the entrance to the side river
on which Shanghai is located, before 1 or 3
o’clock In the afternoon, so that there was plen
ty of time for the newspapers to Issue tnelr
extras, and lor all the foreign residents to
assemble according to programme. No Ameri
can could bo ashamed of toe appearance of the
old Kln-lu-Jucn godown aa ttio Ashuelot an
chored off Its dock at 3 o’clock. The American
man-of-war drew too much water to come close
to the wharf, so the transfer was made In the
ship’s gig, which contained Gen. and Mrs. Grant,
Co). Grant, cx-Secretary Boric, D. ti. Bailer,
United Stales Consul-General, nud s corre
spondent of one of the New York papers. As
die distinguished party moved from the Ash
uclot hercannou gave a royal salute, to which
responses were immediate made by several
other mcn-of-war in the river oft the
Bund. As soon as they bad reached the ventre
of the building, 11. W. Little, Chairman of the
Reception Committee, addressed the ex-l’resi
dent as follows:

To this address of welcome Gen. Grant ro»
pilau:

Immediately at the close of these remarks
several high civil and military mandarins wore
Introduced to the distinguished guest. Among
them was theTaotal, or tiovernor of the native
walled part of Shanghai, it seems that he has
beeu greatly perplexed as to the propriety of
hl« going to the lauding to greet one who was
not actually lu oQlee, indeed, onlv the day be
fore ho decided that it would be unworthy of
one lu his position. Hut, learning tliut four of
his own rank uad been directed by the Imperial
(JoverniDCUt at Peking to go down to Tientsin
and greet Oeti. Urant upon his arrival there,
tula Shanghai TaoUl overcame his scruples,
uud came haslllv loto the ruceptlon-hali only a
few momuuts before the ex-l'resldeut landed.
Alter s few moments of Informal greetings
from the Consuls In Shanghai und the members
of the Municipal Council, the proccsslou formed
for the American utllcial rcshleucu at thu other
end of the Ruud. The Mauilla Hand, which
hud pla«ed America National tunes while the
people were wslltug, was stationed at the head.
The Shanghai Volunteer Klllci was the (Jen-
ernl’a (mracdlato o*cnrt. Tho Tflotal’s body

ho-d to obey the frantic commands of iJjcif
officers, who were very anxious to make the
native part of the reception very conspicuous,
mill marine* from Um American moo-of-wnr,
noble In appearance, cleanly In dress, and promt
of the occasion, stepped proinptlr Into line, and
tlio Shanghai Volunteer Artillery closed
the rear. Soon after starting, the General's
horses became unmanageable, out, u on agrcc
able experience all around, and as airing an.
oilier opportunity to show the real cordiality
of Hie. day, the volunteers unhitched the
carriages and drew it thcmselvefc ’to the
American Consulate. There the Gen
eral Is being made nt home during his few dare'
stay. There he gave n reception to-day. To
morrow. in the evening, there will bo given a
grind ball to hi* honor at the Club House, one
of the must spacious utid magnificent bullulngs

On the morrow, also, the Taotal <s to give an

TWO BEMABKABEE WOMEN.
Personal Reminiscences of a Countess Who
Visited New York on Her Way Aroand
the World, and of a Princess Who Mar
ried a Now York Journalist.
To Iff Editor u] the /few York Herald.
Nbw Yoxk, June 22.—Curiously enough I
find In the same Dumber of a recent Issue of
the Herald Interesting reference to two ladles,
both foreigners, both possessed of titles, both
women of extraordlnsry personal and Intel
lectual gifts, and each with an extraordinary
and most romantic history. Both ore person
ally known lu the same small social circle In 1
New York, while the name of-neither ta well
Known here, though both are famous lu Europe.
They are the Kasdan Countess Paschkofl end
the Wallachlan Princess von Racowltx. Tlio
first is reported to have attempted suicide re
cently In Odessa, and tlio other (perhaps It
would be cruel to note the coincidence) to hare
published a book lu Breslau.
About the beginning of the year 1877 the
Countess Pascbkolf came to New York In the
course of that Journey aroand Die world spoken
of la the sketch published br the (Mot and re
produced la the Herald. While she was here
she met Mr. Jlarrisse, of the Havtleo Diplomat
ic service, aud by him was Introduced to a small
coterie, to which sho found an old friend, tlio
Countess Blavatsky. It was the Bohemian
colony of the city, and at least a dozen well
known artists and scribblers of the city prompt
ly surrendered their hearts to her keeping. I
met her In the studio of one of the number at a
small evening party given in her honor. The
room of the most picturesque of
studios, and across oue cod of It was an Impro
vised divan, with a gar Eastern carpet thrown
over tt. Here half reclined and half sal Urn
queen of the evening and Mme. Dlsvntsby, tlio
only ladles present. The others were artists,
poets, musicians, or Journalists, perhaps a dozen
in all. The talk was In French, English, and
Russian. There were music, cigarettes for all,
tea for the ladles, aud wine for the meu.
Mme. Paaehkolf was slender, and as graceful
and sinuous In her form and movements as a
serpent. Her face was one of great though Ir
regular bcautv. title was not above the medium
hleht, but by reason of Perform, her flowing
robes, and her exaggerated sllopcr heel* sho
seemed tail.' Her large, brilliant eves aud her
hair were blacker than ink. tihe wore o strange
dress, of a fashion-defying fashion, of tho rien
esc and brightest colors, aud ot her throat,
brow, end oars, and on her slender Ungers wore
a profusion of rare Jewels. Pendant from her
breastpin was a pearl as large as u wren's egg,—
a gift from the mother of (he Khedive of Egypt,
whoso guest she had been for a month. She
was the ooly woman I ever saw who might have
sat to Shakspearti for bis rcn-portrnlt of Cleo
patra. The talk was the Idlest, frothlcct, merest
persiflage of cultivated minds. No one was in
earnest about anything excepting laughter. The
music was good, except when Mme. Paschkoff
played or sang. Then It was mere fragments,
—suegestlons'of what an artist might do If she
cared to trv.
Mme. Paschkoff was then “member ot the
Geoeraohlcal Society of Prance,” “correspond
ing member of the Tour «/u .l/omfc“ and a cor
respondent and member ot the “ Picnic Depart
ment “of the Figaro, In tbodattcr capacity
she wrote one letter from the Fifth Avenue
Hotel during her stay lu This was
a fair cxDuucnt of the woman ssshe appeared,
—brilliant,-witty, quaintly dlstorod as to fact
and Intensely satirical. -
Among her sentences descriptive of America
(as she had learned America lu two weeks), I
quote:
There 1* also a Society of tbe Immaculate Cod*
ceptton. wnlcli expect* to bring about o pure and
lofty humanity by method* which I could only ex*
plain to vou In Latin. 1 don’t know,Latin.
There i* allot Society of Propanton of Lore.

make the traitors listen (o their broken oaths.
No young American girl goes oat without her
phonograph. -
After a few weeks* stay the brilliant lady
went across the Continent ami front tian Fran
cisco to Japan, leaving hero, os she had left all
over the world, men to whom oho bod taught
unhappiness.
The Princess von flacowitz, when I first met
tier, 1 lived In Hoboken, having married a New
York journalist. 1 was presented to her by
.Mine. ulavataky (hur friend also) In the Central
Park, the day MaxxiuP* statuo was unveiled nnd
the poet Bryant received a fatal sunstroke. Bho
stood on the lawn away from the crowd, wheu
the sunlight, falling through the foliage shove,
made her wonderdul hair look like mi aureole,
fihe, like Mine. PaacliVofT, Is put tier youth, but
Is still beautiful. She Is tall und large, having a
commanding appearance and'air. Her face is
almost orcternatumllv fair, und her features are
finely chiseled und delicate. Her hair la lus
trously red, —nob auburn or golden in any
shade, but tbc reddest red. Bhe talks English
rather fluently, though with a strong accent,
uud Is wlttr, as well as well rend. Her conver
sation is most charming, combining the archness
at a Purlsieuno with the aplomb which distin
guished her as an actress.
There were In the Central Park group two or
three political exiles, two or three diplomatists,
und several tlicosoplilsts, besides the Inevitable
journalist. Wo dtued together at tho so-culled
fete that followed tho unveiling of tho statue,
und chatted wickedly while speeches—since hap
pily forgotten—were made after dinner. Thu
notice wldch i flod In the JJtra-’d of the book
Just published contains a number of allusions
which dllTer from the story she told me of her
life as 1 sat in her pleasant parlor long after
ward. I have not seen the book, but I Judge
that the reviewer who la quoted must bare read
with colored glasses.
One day last autumn the told mo the story.
Wo *ot by au open window looking over the
Hudson, ami her put Newfoundland, a| big at a

sliowed-mo the report ol what Hlimmk had re*
ccntly laid to the Gorman Hdcbstae about
“ the acupcffraee leader of the SodalJiU.” It
was at follows:
From tbe motnuut that I first saw and spoke with
