Bhe wore glasses and suffering whs written upon without obliterating the nobility of, her features.. When the corre spondent offered the noble washerwoman lils card, simultaneously explaining his mission, she said.- "No, No. I can't be Interviewed. It's Impossible. My two assistants have al ready left me on learning my identity. They are of the people, and said mockingly, 'We cannot thlnlc of working beside such a grand e dame.'

When the duo lived he made liberal provision for , me personally, but In bis will, Instead of leaving m a modest pension, he left me a sum involving mil lions.

Before thl I could make nearly $4 weekly after paying my two women, but, worst of all, the due's oame is dragged Into my miserable store." Turning to hide Tier tears, the poor, oble woman pretended to occupy herself with her work. Gaining composure the jountesa explained that the Duo de rhartrea, brother of D'Aumale, th Duo de Kemours and th other ducal nephews, In tludlng the Duo d'Orleana, OrleanlBt pre .ender to the crown, ar still such a power n France that no leading lawyer would Jure to undertake to fight her case hon- 'lf I ever push my claim, I shall leave France and go to England during th trial. I am fearful of what might befall ne. In thl same quarter lives an old lervant of the duo, to whom he left a enslon of 8.000 franca yearly. The heirs ivcn refused to pay this. His wife died if- chagrin and he Is now a concierge." The countess Is apparently 48 years old.

HAWKEYES HAVE THE HONOR OF SCORING Point Com 8i Through. Penalties and tra Unfortunate Fnmbl. i BENDER SHOWS POOR JUDGMENTfOR ONCE Tries Trick Play When a Pnnt Out cf Danger Was More Certain. MORE THAN REDEEMS AlMSELF LATER Make Two Touchdowns, One of W hich Waa After a Brilliant Rum of Eighty Tarda, Dodging All Tackier. IOWA CITY. la., Oct TL-(Speclal Tele gram.) The Nebraska Comhusker tri umphed over Iowa at Iowa City today on the gridiron. Booth' pupils amassing threa touchdowns nnd seventeen points and de nying th Hawkeyes more than a single score. The victory for Nebraska was more complete than Is indicated by th final re sult for the consoling touchdown credited to Iowa waa due more to good fortune than to foot ball prowess. The Cornhuskera had possession of the oval on their twenty-five yard line, when a penalty waa exacted for holding, which carried It back to within five yards of the goaL At this Juncture Captain Bender made th mistake of at tempting to carry the ball ont of danger by resorting to a trick, th crisscross, when the more advantageous play would hav been a punt A fatal fumble by the Nebraska runner cost the Cornhuskexs possession of the ball and It passed to Iowa on Ne braska's five-yard line. Twice th Hawkey backs plunged Into th line, but the Corn huskers' forwards resisted with fierce de termination In guarding their goal. Again a penalty came to tha aid of the Iowan's. and the ball wa carried half th distance to the Nebraska goal and put In play on the yard and a half line. A final plung and Iowa waa over. Redeems HI Mlaplay. ' But while Bender' blunder netted the first touchdown scored against th Ne braska eleven since the season of 1901, the subsequent brilliance displayed Ly Ne braska's blonde cnptaln, waa a material factor in the triumph achieved by his team. Twice he sprlntered around Iowa' right end and raced down the field and across the Hawkeye goal. Kla first run, In which he dashed rlong for eighty yards, was a marvel of toot ball skill. Signaling for a quarter back run around tha end. he found his progress iisputed by two uc;rs. Like a flash he wheeled and broke toward the mass of struggling play ers. Squliir.lng and wn.gling, on he went and before the lowaj.' cam to a full real ization of their danger, Bv!or ve clear of every warrior on the low-.. tm. Then they set sail to catch him, but th Ne braska taptaln wa too fleet cf foot to be overtaken. Jn the final half ha, skirted Iowa' right end for fifty yards, dodging auveral tack ier In his flight and planted th ball behind the goal line. , Nebraska's third touchdown m aoored only ten seconds before the whistle sounded the call of time. Th Comhusker rushed the ball down the field on a su.-wvesslon of line plunges and n.asses on tackles and Grave waa pushed across th goal. fumbles Are ?saatrous. The persistence with which Nebraska rambled figured .argely in the result Had the Comhusker possessed the ability to hold fast to the ball when within striking distance of a touchdown, tho Hawkeyes would have Buffered defeat by a mich more decisive score. The statistics of tn game, however, read largely In Nebraska' favor. In yards gained the Comhuukers ar cred ited with Sll and Iowa with 190. In return ing kicks Nebraska brought the ball back ninety-five yards, while Iowa retuined It seventy. Nebraska waa thrown for losses totaling seven yards and Iowa suffered to the extent of twenty-two yards. Iowa waa held for down or waa forced to punt nln timea and Nebraska tnly twice. The penal tie against Nebraska were aggravatlngly frequent, the Cornhuskera being set back a total of 116 yards, while th score against Iowa waa thirty yards. In comparison with their overthrow a the hands of Minnesota university two weeks ago, th Hawkeye displayed sur prising reversal In form. They charged the Nebraska Una with a fierceness that forced tbe Cornhuskera to exert their every ounce of energy and putting Booth' pupil to their severest strain of the present year. In the, final half, hswever, Nebraska' de fense stiffened in superb style and the plunges of the heavy Iowa backs ware of no avail. Nebraska's offense was not up to the usual standard in the early momenta of the struggle and Captain Bender re versed his tactic by sending moat of tha plays around Iowa's ends, which program netted results more satisfactory than th previous efforts to buck through th Iowa line. Jonea Iowa's Star. i Jonea waa Iowa's star ground gainer, ons of his dashes netting forty yards. Mc Gowun at right tackle waa a tower of strength In the Iowa line and most of the plays directed at him availed Nebraska only slightly. Left End Benedict divided with Bender the honors for Nebraska. Ills punting netted Nebraska many yard on the exchanges, while he was used fre quently to carry th ball. His longest gain, which was thirty yards, put the Comhuuk ers on Iowa's ten-yard line. Here Booth' pupils refused to be denied, and a succes sion of - tackle masses and stralght-lln bucks netted the final touchdown. Left Tackle Mason wa a distinct factor In Ne braska's triumph and he broke through the Iowa line persistently and spoiled th Hawkeyes' plays. Both managements were disappointed with the attendance, which numbered less than 1.500 persons. Iowa de clined the suggested transfer to Omaha and the result Is a loss to Iowa's exchequer. The Nebraska guaranty waa only enough to pay the expenses of the trip. The crowd was decidedly hostile to tha victor and the Incessant Interruption with the call ing of Nebraska' signal undoubtedly was responsible for many of their fumbles. Th lineup: NEBRASKAIT.
