During the Barnnm & Bailey circus
parade Saturday morning a pretty Ital
ian girl, Celeste Chiesa, appeared on one
of the floats as a Chinese woman. She
was dressed in rose colored tights, and
very thin clothing covered" the npper
part of her lody. Celeste was only 15
years old. She was much pleased with
her exalted position and scattered smiles
all along the route until as the proces
sion neared the close of its journey the
chill wind began to pierce her frail form.
She shivered like an aspen leaf. Return
ing to the Garden she complained of se
vere pains in her chest, but stuck brave
ly to her work and filled her part as a
ballet dancer in the spectacle of "Colum
bujg and the Discovery of America."
She grew worse as the evening wore
on and was taken home by Tody Ham
ilton in a hack to the humble apartments
at 226 Thompson street, where she
roomed with several other members of
the troop. She suffered intensely dur
ing the night and died next day of pneu
monia before a physician could be sum
moned. She came here three weeks ago
on the Paris with Kiralfy's corpscf dan
cers. Her home was in Turin. She had
no friends in this city. New York Ad
vertiser. Forbidden to Swear by a Chicken's Head.
The trial of William Walsh, charged
with roblery in the first degree, was be
gun in the criminal court yesterday. The
defendant was represented by Ben Clark.
An amusing scene ensued when Clark
demanded that Jen Hon Yee, a Chinese
interpreter, who was present to interpret
the Chinese witnesses, be sworn in the
Chinese fashion, and that the same rule
be pursued in regard to all the other wit
nesses. Judge Edmunds inquired what
was the Chinese oath, and Clark replied
that the head of a live chicken must be
cut off in the Chinaman's presence while
he uttered certain words, unintelligible
to the American ear, which signified that
he hoped he would be treated in the same
way if he told a lio while giving his tes
timony. Humane Agent Holmes here
interposed and objected to any chicken
decapitation on the ground of cruelty.
Judge Edmunds stated that he could
think of no precedent in the law books
for such a proceeding, and did not think
he would countenance it. Judge Ed
munds, after explaining to the China
men that thej- were liable to be sent to
the penitentiary if they did not tell the
truth, allowed the trial to proceed. St.
Anotlier Authentic Portrait f Col u rutin ft.
An alleged discovery at Kaples of a
beautiful authentic portrait by Titian
of Christopher Columbus has caused a
great sensation there. Our correspond
ent writes: The full length life size por
trait was shown to me by Signor Canna
vina, the antiquarian, who purchased it
from Count Aldobrandi at Bologna. The
whole, with-; the exception of the face
and hands, had been coarsely painted
over. This extraneous coat being re
moved, the figure in the uniform of a
Spanish admiral was revealed.
The pose and coloring are very quiet;
the face is that of a man with hair just
turninggray; thecyesaro blnc,thoughtful
and even sad; the month is firmly cut,
and he wears a pointed, short blond beard
and mustache. On the tapering fingers
are three massive rings. Tho canvas is
of a peculiar twilled kind. Signor Can
navina possesses documents which vouch
for the authenticity of the picture. It is
to bo sent for exhibition to Chicago.
