Madame Humbert, her husband, Eva Humbert; M. and Madame d'Aurignac, the brother and sister-in-law of Mad ame Humbert, and their three chil dren, Romain, Emile and Marie, who perpetrated the safe frauds in Paris, were arrested by the police of Madrid, Spain, last week. They had been in Madrid since May 9, having come di rect from Paris. Mile. Eva Humber became hyster ical and Madame Humbert clasped Marie d'Aurignac and her daughter in r ®ý t E7 ZZ4DI.4 IzZ2YUe.y- 1ý256DF:yC H - y her arms, pleading with the police not to separate her from her daughter. The police made an inventory of the contents of the apartments and found a a parcel of Jewels valued at $2,000, two lottery tickets and about $115 in cash. Seals were then attached to the house and the entire family taken to Jail and placed at the disposition of the French Ambassador. The occupants of the house had sought to escape by the windows, but failed. It is believed that they de stroyed papers of importance before I the police gained entrance. The Prefect of Police subsequently had an audience of King Alfonso, and reported the capture. The king con- t gratulated him, saying: "I rejoice that our police have been able to render s service to France." b The prefect said he had known of ti the presence of the Humberts for a b week, but delayed taking action until he was assured that he had the entire t party trapped. The Humberts maintain that they o1 are innocent, declare that they them selves have been victimized, and ex press a desire to return to France and defend themselves against the $8 charges. 1,1 .The presence of the Humbert family sq in.

Borrowed Millions on Her Story. The interest of all Paris on May 9 last was centered on an empty safe at No. 65 Avenue de ]a Grand Armee. It was suposed to contain $20.000.000 sum was alleged to be held in trust by Madame Therese Humbert, who un ,t der Mr. Crawford's first will, was con stituted his sole legatee, and who, on ie .he strength of her title to the ficti Ad tious estate, succeeded in borrowing 0, over $12,000,000 from bankers, money n lenders and others in France and e Belgium. 0 Eventually an investigation was if started, the Humberts and others con nected with them in the operation 3 Red from Paris, and on May 9, when t the Chief of the Detective Department of Paris, M. Cochefort, opened the safe it brought to light the greatest swindle of the country, for the safe was found to contain nothing but an old Jewel box, some old papers and i the official seals which had made the 1 swindle possible, the fortune having, c under, the terms of the second will, a been represented as held in trust un- a til Madame d'Aurignac, Madame Hum-. bert's niece, attained her majority, when all the heirs mentioned in the a two wills were to come to an amicable p agreement for an equitaole division e of the property.

Frederick Temple, archbishop of Canterbury and primate of all England, who had been ill for some time past, died December 23. The primate died of old age. The pathetic scene in Westminster a:'bey at the coronation of King Edward was one of the earlier indications of his failing strength. Then came the collapse in the house of lords at the conclusion of a vigor ous speech in support of the education bill. He had not left his bed since. The bishop of Winchester is consid ered likely to be his successor. Dr. Frederick Temple was the son of an officer in the army. He was born Nov. 30, 1821, was educated at the grammar school at Tiverton, and, proceeding to Oxford became scholar of Balliol college and took his degree of B. A. in 1842. He was elected fel low and mathematical tutor of his col lege,, and, having been ordained in 1846, was appointed principal of the training college at Kneller hall, near Twickenham, in 1848. This post he c resigned in 1855, and after having c held an inspectorship of schools dur- J Ing the interval was appointed, on the a resignation of Dr. Colborn in 1858, t] lead master of Rugby school. At the general election of 1868 bi Dr. Temple took an active part in Warwickshire in support of Mr. Glad. stone's measure for the dis-establlsh. nent of the Irish church, and the pre fmier nominated him to the bishopric of Exeter in succession to the late Dr. Philpotts-an appointment which caused considerable commotion in rlerical circles. On the death of Dr. Jackson in January, 1885, Dr. Temple c was appointed bishop of London. On he death of Dr. Benson in 1896 he vas appointed archbishop of Canter. )ury. SD Fifty Years a Mason. On Christmas night Bishop John M. Walden (Cincinnati) of the Meth odist EpjPcopal church had been a member of the Masonic fraternity for fifty years. He was made a Master Mason on Dec. 25, 1852, in McMack in lodge, No. 120, of Mount Healthy, O. Bishop Walden's Masonic semi centennial was fittingly remembered by that lodge at its regular meeting last week. A silver loving cup was presented to-Brother Wa en. In Memory of Amy Robsart. A unique appeal has been sent out by a number of English personages, including the bishop of Thetford and the marchioness of Cholmondeley, for funds to be used for preserving a me morial window or some such moni. ment to Amy Robsart in the church at Lyderstone hall, where she wor shipped. Instead of sending these ap peals to everyone, broadcast and indis rriminlately, they are sent only to women bearing the name of Amy. GORGEOUS CEREMONIES MARK THE GRAND DURBAR AT DELH.n A *.ir metwss ocra 4&O 44 44 44 Two hundred and twenty of the hugest elephants in Asia trumpeted a salute to the Viceroy of the Kaisar i-Hind as he and his American wife made their state entry into'the ancient capital of the Moguls Dec. 29. Since the days of the great Aurung zebe, the descendants of Tamerlane, India, has seen no such splendor as the pageant around the Jumma Musjid when the ruling Princes filed past the Viceroy and the Emperor's brother. Each monster elephant, almost hid. den in the gorgeous embroideries of Cashmere, iridescent with gold, silver, pearls and precious stones, raised his trunk and trumpeted a homage as his royal master raised his Jeweled scimi tar to his turban in salute to the ab sent Emperor. At the head of the elephant proces sion rode Lord and Lady Curzon on the state "Grand Tusker." twelve feet i high. the largest elephant in India. I Their howdah was decked with gold I and silver, and the elephant itself was almost hidden beneath a gold worked saddle-cloth. Surrounding them were footmen in scarlet and gold liveries and bearing massive silver staves. The Duke of Connaught, who repre sented King Edward, and the Duchess of Connaught followed. Their elephant was equally gorgeously caparisoned. Then, in order of precedence, came the Nizam of Hdyerabad, the Maharajah of Travancore and other ruling chiefs, seventy in all, their huge elephants forming a line a quarter of a mile in length. The route was entirely lined by Brit ish and native troops. From the bat tery posted at the fort commanding the Lahore gate, guns thundered out a royal salute as the Viceroy passed with the heralds and trumpeters sounding at intervals spirited fanfares. In the rear of the procession rode General Lord Kitchener, the Com mander-in-Chief In India, surrounded b3 a brilliant staff and followed by the heads of the provinces, with escorts f Indian cavalry and tribal leaders ~om beyond the borcer line. Down the main street move@ cortege through lines of saluting diers and excited, surging throng. natives; through the ancient ci with the balconies and housetops ing with life, and through the Mo gate into the open park beyon There, after a four-mile march, the phants of the Viceroy and the Da of Connaught halted side by side, the pageant was concluded with the great Princes filing by, their elephan trumpeting a salute. The Viceroy was in state uniform;.. Lady Curzon was dressed in gray, Duke of Connaught wore a field mar shal's uniform and the Duchess Connaught was in blue. They receiv a flattering welcome at all points. A touching feature of the spec is said to have been the presence oei a descendant, by the female line, of, the last King of Delhi, whose sons were executed by the British for their part in the Indian mutiny of 1857, the King himself being sent into life exile, and dying a few years later. was GREAT WESTERN WRITER DEAD. s con eation Literary World Loses Leader in Mrs. Mary H.

BELL MAY MAKE AN AIRSHIP. Friends Believe He Can Use a Kite In Place of Balloon in His Craft. Friends of Prof. Alexander Graham Bell beileve he has discovered the basic principle of the successful flying machine. Beyond saying that a pr'op erly constructed kite should be cap. able of use as a flying machine if pro vided with suitable means of propul sion, however, the scientist maintains silence for the present.

FREMONT. sland Brilliant Woman Practically Unknown to Present Generation. ,hair- The announcement of the death of the Jessie Benton Fremont in California, with whose early tortunes both she and her husband, Gen. John C. Fre mont, were closely identified, will hardly affect the present generation, which knows little about this once brilliant woman. Indeed, the interest in her life now is purely reminiscent: but her death will bring up many in teresting memories to those whose recollections go back half a century, and who will recall her as the hand some, dashing, high spirited wife of Lieut. Fremont and daughter ot Sen ator Benton. She was the young lieu tenant's support and inspiration in that famous exploration which made him known all over the country as "the Pathfinder." She was the wife of the first Republican candidate for the presidenc:, and had Fremont been elected she would have had a brilliant court at the White house, over which she would have presided in queenly style. She was honored at European uc- courts, where her wit and beauty ter made her a social sensation. She was tr. the belle of many cities, a general fa th vcrite in an unusually wide circle of of ,he or ted ne dprlved er of the opportunity to fl destinguished acquaintances, and a, her husband's was a ral friends, other misfortunes which overtook him deprived her of the opportunity to nait Positions In which she would have shone. The society queen, once de throned, is soon forgotten, and such was Mrs. Fremont's fate.
