Nothing wa3 known of the case even at the police station until his friends appeared Saturday morn ing. Then quite a etory came out. Liliwa had been locked up for protection against himself.

They could hear in the future the faint tinkling of the marriage bells. Of the advent in the air of the sonorous soundings of the d?r lightful day they were confident. There wa3 no thought of dieapi pointment or interference. An obstacle became manifest. There was nui nui pilikia. The mother of the girl filed a demurrer to the joint petition. Being coun sel, jury and judge she handed down the law in no uncertain man ner. The bill of particulars against the suitor consisted only of that sweeping and potent woman's rea son. Itwas "because." The girl and her brother were in for maneuvering against the un yielding mother. The lover was stupified by the blow. He gave up entirely and decided to take the suicide route. In her capacity as attorney the mother has entered a nolle pros. Her case is "because." She was in a bad state at police headquarters Saturday morning. Her son and daughter were blamed for the trouble and were roundly berated. As for the love-sick youth, she fold ed bim to her arms he was her favorite. and declared I She said the I wedding must occur without delay and that her scn-in-law would be the apple of her eye forever. The woman was deeply affected over the thought that any act or position of her own should cause an attempt at suicide. The young man was heartily ashamed of himself. He views the outcome of the affair with a high degree of satisfaction, and is cer tain that he will be happy as a husband. ISLAND TEA. Hawaiian Rival of English Break fast on the Market.

Deth of a Chief Who IIm For Mmnj Tears. Special Correspondence YiErjiA, Oct. 0. Although queens,. as a rule, cannot be expected to manifest any particular sympathy for brigands, yefi I imagine that Qnecn Olga of Greece will hare been somewhat moved by the death, at Lamia, of Noses Papakyritsop ulos, the bandit chieftain wlro for years has been terrorizing the province of Pbthiotis, for the was personally ac quainted with him, and on one occasion intervened to ear him from punish ment which he had incurred wMLo serv ing in the army. I was In Athens at the time and remember hearing from the queen's own lips how she had been brought to interest herself in his fate. One day, when the was walking in the gardens of the palace, a young man dre ssed in the uniform of a corporal of infantry appeared before her and threw himself at her feet, invoking her help. From tho story which ho told her it appeared that ho was a son of a provin- I J I financial misfortnns. In consequence of this tho parents of the young soldier's fiancee had insisted on tho engagement being broken off. Thi3 had upset the youth to such an extent that ho becamo moody and bad tempered and finally ended by striking in a fit of passion a sergeant who had jeered him on tho subject of his lovo affair. Realizing tho gravity of his offense, he had taken to flight, and knowing tho fato that await ed him if arrested in his despair he be thought himself of tho queen and re solved to beseech her to exert her influ ence in his behalf. Thero is no warmer hearted woman in tho world than Queen Olga, and, thanks to Jff fa japed with merely a nominal punishment, being lOroo, ever, to quit tho army. Instead of re maining at Athens or of emigrating, he wa9 advised enough to return to his native town of Lamia, where ho arrived on tho very day that his betrothed was being married to his rival. This was more than he could bear, and that same night both bride and bridegroom were laid low by the dagger of young Nasos. Captured shortly after this and con- KING GEOI'.GE. QUEEN OLGA. demncd to penal servitude for life, he found in tho penitentiary his father, who had been imprisoned for some con travention of the bankruptcy laws. The poor old man was in the last stages of consumption and died in his son's arms, Nasos thereupon in the bitterness of his grief swearing eternal vengeance against society. Three months later he, together with nine of his fellow convicts, took advan tage of a hurricane raging one dark De cember night to escape and to make good their flight to tho mountains, where they organized themselves into a band of robbers. As in the story books, their depredations were mainly confined to the rich, and they were so generous with their plunder that, far from being either feared or hated, they were be loved by tho entire peasantry of the countryside, especially the bandit chief, young Nasos, who was known through out the province as "The Boy." So great a power did Nasos and his band acluire tnat they wero ablo even to m- nuenco we election oi parliamentary reprcaemauves ui iuu uimuci, ium a ivw months ago the congressmen from La mia and tho neighboring towns were actually forced by their constituents to urge the minister of the interior to ab stain from tho project of sending troops for tho purpose of capturing or killing tho bandits. Somo years ago Lord and Lady M tin cast cr, Hon. Edward Herbert, Mr. Fred Vyner, and Count Boyli of tho Italian legation wero seized by brigands while picnicking on tho plain of Marathon and hurried off to the mountains. Four days later Lord Muncaster was released and sent to Athens for tho purpose of secur ing tho ransom and the terms of immu nity demanded by tho brigands. They insisted upon $150,000 in money, a free pardon for present and past outrages and the liberation of certain brigands then in custody. Tho English minister at Athens urged the Greek government to procure tho release of tho captives even upon tho terms of tho brigands, and received a distinct promise that the matter should be settled at no matter what cost. With characteristic lack of faith, tho Greek authorities tried to avoid tho payment of the ransom by compassing tho arrest of tho banditti and dispatched a body of troops to cap ture tho outlaws. The latter through their friends at Athens wero at once ap prised of the scheme. Enraged thereat, tho robbers carried the unfortunate trav elers farther into the interior, and after subjecting them for several days to the most distressing anxiety as to what their fato might be, murdered thero in cold blood. The bodies when found bore, besides a number of gunshot wounds, tho appearance of having been, in addition thereto, stabbed in tho back. The affair created an immense sensation at tho time, which was still further in creased when several members of the par liamentary opposition in Greece as well as an Englishman named Noel, domi ciled at Negroponte, were arrested and placed cn trial along with the brigands for complicity in themaacre, and most of the accused paid the penalty cf their crime with their lives. But, notwith standing this, brigandage continues to remain as much of a curse in Greece as it was in the days when the French novelist, Edinoud Alxwt, selected tho Greek brigand Hadji Stavros as the hero of his popular tale.
