A representative of the Woman's Home Companion, who spent the greater part of ten days with John D. Rockefeller at his Cleveland home, says of Mr. Rockefeller. "It is no exaggeration to say he (Rockefeller) is the most hated, least understood, and most interesting man in America." In estimating the multi-millionaire's wealth, the article, which is graphically illustrated with nKrttrkaranhs loaned bv Mr. Rockefeller. ?f contains this interesting statement: When millionaire Marcus Daly died, he was generally said to be worth $50,000,000. When his will was probated, it showed about $13,000,000. Senator Hearst was popularly reported to be worth, when he died, from forty to eighty millions. The faet9 showed about seventeen millions, and so on. So Mr. Rockefeller's wealth would be more correctly represented by about one quarter of the billion which he has often been charged* with possessing, and more than half of this has come of the advance in many judicious investments long years ago.

High Brazilian society is talking excitedly of the greatest sensation it has had in many years and which calls to mind the days of ancient Rome, when THE MOISTS POUNCED UPON THE GAYLY DRESSED HOST. Nero's well worn favorites were wont to Invent some ideas for relieving that fickle emperor of their presence. Several days ago one of the picturesque noblemen of the old empire, Viscount Almeida, who faced disgrace because of debts and whose conquests ' of society women were certain to bring about ostracism, gave a sumptuous banquet The elect of the capital were InvltAil and avonr ooal xxrfla flllfvl hp | 1U T 1 bV'Vftj IMM V f V*jr WM? W cause the host had promised a startling surprise. ! After the feast the host led his guests to a large hall, where they saw a cage ' of lions, which had been hired from a . menagerie. On the qui vlve for the [ sensation, the guests soon were strick! en with horror to see the viscount : open the door of the cage and enter and draw the bars. > The lions pounced upon the gayly dressed host, who still was smiling, and In a twinkling he was being torn and bitten by the savage beasts. The guests could not understand the foolhardy feat, but subsequent developments indicated that Almeida deliberately chose this method of suicide ' to avoid disgrace. Chased Into Ravine by Cow. A thirteen-year-old Swiss peasant girl named Marie Hofer had an extraordinary escape from death on a mountain. She was attacked by a cow and, running from the animal, fell Into a deep ravine. Rushing to the spot, her father discovered that the girl's fall had been stopped by a tree seventy feet below, in the boughs of which she was securely wedged. She was practically uninjured, and as rescue was impossible that night bread, water and a covering , were lowered to her, while her father and mother kept watch above. Next morning the girl was extricated by means of a rope and was able at once to resume her work. tr-~i A- v*? IT* nvput^ mp i#rv|p mv wv*? "I hope Til drop dead if I go back to work before the strike is over," said Willie m H. Derr, a striking puddler at the Scranton (Pa.) Nut and Bolt works, the other morning. His wish came true when he returned to work, the only member of the union to go back. He had worked only half an hour when "he fell over dead. Death, it is said, resulted from heart disease. The dead man leaves a wife and three children, and It is said that he had found it impossible tb provide for them without going back to work. Xoae Bleed Kills Girl.

Miss Carr, who was eighteen years oia, naa oeen ia excellent neaiui, when her nose began to bleed without i any apparent cause.
