ÎÎT. —'Tho Matin publishes a story wliich, if »me, plainly indicates that all of Bismarck's movements are watched by detectives in the employ of the emperor or some one else high in authority in Ger many.

Pazmandy was duly provided with letters of introduction, and on his arrival at Kis singen he wrote to tho ex-chancellor de manding an audience. As no reply came he called in person at Prince Bismarck's villa. When he entered the garden a well dressed gentleman asked him very cour teously what he wanted. M. Pazmandy explained the object of bis visit, and showed his letters of introduction. The well dressed gentleman took the let ters, glanced them over, put them In his pocket and told tho deputy to return to his hotel,where 1'aince Bismarck's reply would be sent to him. No reply was sent, and upon still further investigation Pazmandy learned from Bis marck's secretary that tho prince hod neither received his letters of Introduction nor hts request for an audience. The well dressed gentleman, who had received the deputy so politely on the first occasion, proved to l>e no other than a de tective intrusted with the task of con stantly shadowing the ex-ohancellor.
