Broke Out of Hippodrome and Ran
Through Streets. .
New York, Nov 28. The antics of
a tiny pig so frightened a four ton
elephant to-day that he broke away
from his keepers at the Hippodrome
crashed through several stout doors
and started on a wild run through
the crowded streets towards the East
river. Between Second and Third
avenues, he plunged into f the en
trance of a tenement house, smash
ing the doorway to pieces and trotted
through the long hallway and out in
to the rear yard, ell then started on
a wild rampage through the back
fences. After going through half a
dozen of those frail structures, the
keeper finally got a rope around one
of his legs and made the rope fast to
a clothes pole. It was necessary to
bring thre other plephants iroin the
Hippodrome to quiet the beast, after
which he' returned to Ms quarters."' "

lion of Affairs.
Paris, Nov 28. The Stelnhell case
continues to be the sensation of the
hour in all France. No one ven-
ures to say where the revelations
will end. The political side looms
larger and larger every day and the
Interest harks back always to the
raglc -Jeath In Paris in 1899 of Felix
Faure, a former presldant of France.
M. Faure died in tha midst of the
Dreyfus excitement. The most ml-!
ute details of the scene in the room
where he expired in tins company of
Madame Stelnhell are to-lay flagrant
ly published by even the republican
newspapers. Up to the present time
this inctiient In the career of Ma
dame Stelnheil has only been refer-
ed to covertly. Tbe royalist and
ntl-Dreyfus organs are demanding
n official Investigation Into the
eath of M. Faure ar.d Ultimate open
ly that M. Faure as the inseperable
obstacle to the leaders of the Dreyfus
agitation was the victim of a plot.
They haye put forward the old al
legation that M. Faure intended to
yield to the petition of the Dreyfus
ards and sign an order for the revi
sion of the case and that consequent
ly he was poisoned. The only reason
to believe that his body decomposed
with unusual rapidity, and to offset
this there are the statements of five
of the best known physicians of Paris
who certified that he died of cerebral
hemorrhage. 1
The other story that Madame bteir.-
heil was present when he passed
away seems, unfortunately, to be
true, and great regret was expressed
that circumstances have now com
pelled the disclosure to the world of
this old scandal which the Fau-o
family and the friends of the. former
nresident thought was buried with
his body.
The letters containing evidence or
M. Faure's relations with Madame
Steinhell were surrendered after his
death probably Is true, but the Idea
hat these communications contained
compromising state secrets is reject
ed by all who were behind the scenes
at the time., i
With regard to the crimes tnem
Blv 8- Madame Steinhell's husband
and her mother, Madame Japy, wera
found murdered in the- Stelnhehs
home in Paris on May 31 of this year.
and at the same time Madame Stein
hell was discovered bound and
gagged the net is drawing closer
around the wife. Stories of her nu
merous romantic affairs with persons
of note in political and artistic cir
cles are coming to light dally and
they prove what a remarkable wo
man she was. She Is (now called
the charmer of men." Her salon
was dazzlingly brlliinnt. Her last
lover In whose eyes she declared sho
wanted to justify herself ,has now
been discovered, and his identity fur
nishes a clue to a motive for the
crime. He Is a rich widower and
resides in a famous chateau near
Meziers in the department of the
Ardennes. He is not implicated is
the crime. When seen by a journal
1st this man, who is the father of
three children, protested frantically
at the disgrace an exposure would
bring. He said he was ready to com
mit suicide, but nevertheless he
made a clean breast of his relations
with Madame Steinheil. he de
scribed how he had met her at a re
cetplon at the Steinheils. He fell
easily under the spell of Madame
Stelnheil's charms. He sooa
got into the . habit of meetin
her at the "Green Lodge a villa at
Bellevue which Madame Steinheil
rented under the name of Madame
Prevost. Marlette Wolff, the cook
whose son was accused by Madame
Stelnhell of being guilty of the mur
ders lived at the lodge and was her
mistresses' confidante. This was
early last year. "For a month it was
an exquisite Idyl said this man in
describing tbe episode. "Madame
Steinheil said she adored me and
at each meeting she made new avow
als and swore I was the only lover
6he had ever had. She told me or
her past, the widower continued to
the newspaperman and denied this
gossip of her relations with other
men. She insisted particularly that
the Faure story was a legand and
said she could porve that she was
home ill at the time of M. Foure's
death. She admitted however that
she hated her husband and said that
he led an "Infamous existence." She
devested her mother also for having
forced her to marry Steinheil. She
assured her lover that she would get
a divorce and marry him.
This man related how the scales
gradually fell from his eyes. When
be spell was broken he returned
Madame Stelnhell however con
tinued to pursue him and telephoned
him every day.
On the morning of the crimes he
called him up by long distance tel
ephone but the wire was not work
ing well and he could barely under
stand what she said. Finally she
exclaimed "I am satisfied for I have
heard vour volce that is enough for
The next day when he learned of
the murders he suspected the truth
and came to Paris. He saw Madame
Steinheil and told her never to see
him again until she had cleared her
self. The prevailing belief in Paris
to-day is that Madame Steinheil de
liberately had her husband and
mother assassinated.

While playing around a bonfire
near her home at 184 Railroad Hill
street an Italian girl five years of
age stumbled and fell into the
flames. She was so badly burned,
and though Dr Dwyer did all that
was possible for her, it is feared she
will succumb to her injuries. She
was taken to tbe hospital.
John McGrath of East Mala
and William Kenney of Oak street re
turned home to-day from Kent where
they had been hunting for a couple
of days, bringing with them 52 rab
bits, 26 partridges and 12 gray squir
rels. . Last night they encountered a
wild cat and for a time they were
busy saving their dogs from it. It
attacked the dogs at sight and then
made a jump for Kenney's throat.
While it was in the air McGrath shoi
it through the neck, but even then It
fought desperately and the huntsmen
were pretty well tired out when the
wild animal ceased to breathe.
"There are three Glenwoods in the
home I live in. MY WIFE wouldn't
part with hers for anything if she
couldn't get another. She keeps send
ing you customers for Glenwoods.
She is most enthusiastic over her
cooking since she bought it."
So remarked a husband in our store recently. This is only
what is being said in effect every day in our store by some pleased
Glen wood customers. ...... .......

Chatham, Mass, Nov 28. In at
tempting to round Monomoy Point,
to-day, the two masted schooner
Florence A of Rockland.' lumber
laden, from Bungor to New Bedford,
was driven upon the west side of
the Handkerchief shoal by wind and
tide, where she pounded until her
seams opened and she filled with
water. Her crew of five men were
brought ashore by life savers from
Monomoy Point, after all hands had
worked in vain for hours to get the
vessel afloat.
The' patrol of the station had seen
the schooner near the shoal about
12:30. a. m. and burned warning
torches. Even as he was doing this
a signal from the vessel indicated
that she had struck.
In half a gale and heavy surf Cap
tain Kelly and his crew got away in
their boat. Three miles of hard row
ing them alongside the schooner.
Both the schooner's crew and tliq
life savers worked to get the craft
afloat, but every moment the seams
of the vessel , were opening and at
6:30 when she was full of water her
captain abandoned her.
The Florence A. left Bangor early
In the week for New Bedford. Tha
vessel was built In Cherryfleld, Me.
In 1890, and was 120 tens net. Her
present hailing port is Rockland. -
The life savers expressed the opin
ion to-day that the vessel could not
be saved.
