Chase, with a small party of friends, boarrled the tug Media and started for the Sandy Hook Lightship, where they met the Holienzollern. From there, they kept beside the big ship until thoy reached Hoboken, where Mr. Chase had the pleasure of greeting his daughter Lulu personally for tne first tiin« since June 6. All along the way to Hoboken her friends were calling out to her from the boat across the deep. Mr. Chase was de lighted to see his daughter, for he had missed her greatly in his home, which she had the entire management of be fore going abroad. Miss Chase had sailed from Italy on the Princess Irene as tar as Gibraltar, and from there on the Holienzollern. The party on the tug Media met the big ship at 12.30 and arrived from their return trip at 6.30 p. m. in South Amboy. The correspondent was favored with an interview Thursday evening at Miss Chase's home and found her in the midst of many handsome souvenirs from the different countries she had visited. Mr. Chase is a very pleasing host, genial and courteous, making one feel perfectly at ease and at home. His daughter, Miss Lulu, is a very charming young lady, a pretty blonde. She was beautifully gowned in white and wore a handsome white silk shawl with fringe a foot in depth, over her shoulders, one of the soi venirs she had brought with her. She said she had rough weather on the voyages, but had been fortunate to escape the terrible seasickness which attacked most of the other voyagers, and was able to go to the dining room and partake of the several courses of food and enjoy them. She had met some charming people on the trips. Miss Chase sailed on the Cimric the fifth ot June and arrived at London, England, first. She had a young lady school friend with her and another friend as chaperone, Mrs. F. Mason Perkins, of Ciana, Italy. They visited England, France, Bel gium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Greece and Spain. They also made a little trip to Moravia. After they arrived in Italy their chaperone’s husband became ill and she was com pelled to leave the young ladies witli a party of seven friendB of the chaper one, who joined them and went with them to Greece and Spain. Miss Chase was delighted with Italy and Spain. She thought the people par ticularly fascinating, the latter, espec ially. While at Madrid she 'witnessed a bull fight and saw six bulls^ killed. At first it seemed too horrible to be enjoyed, but after a while its effect irmol* r1omAi*oli'7inrf onil if cntn n 11 a f lost its horror for her. She pitied the poorjiorses more than she did the bulls, for after being terribly gored, they would be wrapped up and brought out again. Altogether she had quite ^ an eventful trip. At the isthmus of the Arabic Sea she witnessed the wreck of the North German Lloyd steamer among the arehipeligoes. She also saw a violent eruption of Mount Vesuvius, of which her description was very graphic. While in Sicily there was a severe earthquake, but being in Syracuse, she only felt the shock. Mr. Chase was terribly alarmed at that time, having read of it and know ing his daughter was there, he was looking for a cablegram with bad news, but fortunatelv did not receive any. Whil# visiting Greece and Spain . they remained on board of the boat, ■ e^ine and sleeping there instead of 1 da shore. They were on the boat two weeks and delicious grapes and cur rants wore brought on board which were used for drying, as raisins, etc. The souvenirs, which Miss Chase brought with hor, consisted of very beautiful Spanish lace and drawn work, Majolica vases, bronze statu ettes, Oriental embroidery, coral and Venetian beans, Toledo damascene work, Pompeian silver and glass, antique lamps, and several other articles. There was a musical instru — ment made of turtle shell, wliicn the natives at Angiers, Moravia, play on, and tobaooo pouches, worn by natives, silk bags. A large handmade tray, copper work, and slippers for Mr. Chase and herself, very handsome, ga<jii as were worn in a Harem she visited. The fans she brought were very handsome. One, an immense affair, was a souvenir of the bull fight, which was in honor of the Vir gin’s birthday. I had almost forgot ten some old African swords which she prized very highiy for their anti quity and peculiarity ot shape. Mr. Chase was perfectly delighted with the souvenirs, and also at having his daughter home with him, safe and well. MR. GLEASON FOR CHIEF.
