MLLE. DE'CAMPOS- FLIGHT.
Successive Stories of Hor Departure
With the Sham Nobleman.
/'rum the Xeie York M'ivWT
The story of the disappearance of Seno
rita Mercedes de Campos with M. Miol
vaque, lias suffered some very material
changes since it first startled and thrilled
the Parisians. Some of the boldest heroes
created by the elder Dumas xvore common
place felloxvs compared with the hidalgo,
brigand or whatever he was xvho in broad
daylight kidnaped in the Avenue de Bois
d,.’ Boulogne the daughter of Martinez
Campos himself, heiress to a million and a
half —not of francs but of dollars—a beauty
ol' the perfect creole type and barely out of
her teens. As the story first had it, this au
dacious unknown, aided by masked men,
t.eized the young woman, thrust her into a
private carriage and drove off at a rattling
pace, leaving her astonished aud circum
vented duenna wringing her hands in de
There were txvo theories as to the identity
of the bold abductor. One was that he xvas
the young woman’s divorced husband, the
Count de San Antonio, son of Marshal Ser
rano. But this theory was generally re
jected as being altogether too coin monplace.
The theory which seemed suitable and satis
factory was that tho audacious deed had
been done by a French nobleman who xvas
deeply in love with Senorita de Campos,
and who hoped by tiiis coup to make an
otherwise hopeless suit successful by placing
the heiress in such a position that' she and
her family would consent to a marriage to
avoid scandal. Of course he hoped ultimately
to win her love ill some way, even if she
should be so cold-hearted as not to be won
by the audacity of his first proceeding. In
pursuance of this theory it was set forth
that the abductor xvas a handsome, dark
featured young man, a viscount, who had
first seen and admired Senorita de Campos
while she xvas absorbed in her devotions at
church; that ho had succeeded in being pre
sented to the young xx-oman, but had been
kept at an aggravating distance by the
duenna, a veritable dragon. He, however,
continued to make lox e through billet-doux
folded among the blossoms of bouquets,
which, under tho peaceful cover of tho
night, be fiung on the lady’s balcony—of
course she had a balcony. According to
this story, Senorita do Campos’ faith
ful elderly companion, when she
recovered from the stupor pro
duced by the abduction, hastened to the
house of a brother-in-law of the heiress, the
Count, de Casa Monte, and by him she xvas
hurried to the Prefecture of Police and
thence to the Spanish embassy. She told
her story to the police, and xvas positive that
the lady hail been spirited away against her
will. She did not believe.that the abductor
was the young Viscount, but was sure ho
was a villain of far deeper dye—a person
whom she denounced to the police as having
vowed that he would compel her mistress to
marry him even if he had to compromise
her, and she greatly feared that this person
would “try to ruin her reputation bv boast
ing that he had committed some odious ac
tion.” The Count de Casa Monte called
upon Queen Isabella, in company xvith the
Marquis de Galliffet, and the Queen prom
ised to see that the crime should be thor
The matter-of-fact and unromantic police
were strongly inclined to the belief that the
abduction of Senorita de Campos was not
wholly involuntary on her part—a theory
which xvas accepted generally with great re
luctance, though it pn ivod to he far from
destructive of the romance connected xvith
tUo case. The inspector who had charge of
the matter was grieved to differ with Queen
Isabella, but he discoxvie 1 that the Senorita
xvas not rudely torn from tho side of tho
duenna, but xvas gently led to the carriage;
that she did not raise her hands appealingly
nndexelahn: “I’m lost! Pm lost!" but ap
peared radiant and full of confidence, and
that the alxluctor xvas one M. de la Cour-
MaEfiMg the best of it, the romance-loving
Parisians gathered interesting material
about thd*eTopenient of the heiress with
“the Viscount de la Cour dc Garbceuf,” and
the story came out in this shape: This young
nobleman and aristocrat was the same who
had fallen in love with Senorita de Campos
upon,seeing her in church at her devotions,
btttaie had made better headxvay in his suit
than the duenna knew. He had urged the
lady to elope; she had hesitated, and, having
hesitated, had virtually consented. It had
been arranged that the elopement was to be
given the semblance of an abduction. And
if she xvas agreeable to the abduction at the
time and from the spot named by the Vis
count, she was to-signify that fact by xx-ear
ing white instead of black when sh- started
out on that day xvith her duenna. The Vis
count, had written to her, xvith what orthog
raphy and chirography it was not stated:
“My beautiful angel, if you are to lie mine
and are disposed to folloxv me wherever I
think xxvll to take you, put on a light
gown: if not, come in a dark one.”
On the morning of the coup, the story
had it, a groom on horseback was posted
near the lady’s house in the Rue Christopho
Colombo, to take note of tho color of the
gown hi which Senorita do Campos ap-
Jieawl with her inevitable duenna. When
the groom saw that the lady was in white
he put spurs to his horse and carried tho in
telligence to the anxious Viscount. A friend
of the nobleman also dashed up about the
same time on a foaming steed from the Arc
de Triomphe with the same information.
Carriages and persons on horseback were
waiting in the Avenue de Bois do Boulogne
it the spot appointed for the abduction;
Wd a party of ladies and gentlemen, allies
of the Viscount, were assembled to assist in
this delightfully romantic business. When
Senorita de Campos arrived, strolling de
murely with her watchful duenna, one of
these allies of the nobleman approached tho
(tame dc compaynie and asked the privi
lege of a word with her. What then took
place is told as follows: “At
this moment the Viscount hur
ried out of his brougham, helped tho
lady into it, and drive off with her in tho
direction of Paris, escorted by a baron, who
rode by tho side of the vehicle. The pair
made the best of tneir way to tho St. Lazare
station, took the train for Pontoise, where

the Brussels express, reaching tho Belgian

According to this story the ladies of

was a lunatic; but they seemed to he the

that Senorita do Campos went with him of

not quite certain that the faithful duenna
was not in the confidence of her mistress.
The present interest in this remarkable
case lies in the fact that there is no question
as to the identity of the young woman who

MR. AND MRS. BOWSER.
The Trouble They Have on Money
From, the Detroit Free Press.
Some weeks ago I referred to Mr. Bow
ser’s liberality in the matter of pin money.
He began in the most literal manner, but
ended with the declaration:
“See here, Mrs., Bowser, this is all non
sense! We are one. What belongs to me
belongs to you. This giving you a certain
sum of money every week makes it appear
as if you were a servant. When you want
money take it out of my wallet. If you can’t
find the wallet,' just mention the sum you
“But, Mr. Bowser, I—”
“No buts about it! You were going to
say you hated to lie obliged to ask me for
money—l, your own husband! When a
wife gets as sensitive as that she should be
obliged to go barefooted for three months in
I let the matter drop for a few days, but
one day when I wanted a dollar to buy some
notions I went to Mr. Bowser's coat, which
was hanging on the hall-tree for the moment,
and took out the family wallet. No, [ didn't
either. It wasn’t there. I decided to wait
awhile, aivl that night, when Mr. Bowser
was sound asleep and blowing his fog-horn,
I got up to look for his wallet. It couldn’t
be found. All the money he had about him
was one poor, old lonesome nickel. I was
wondering whether half of that belonged
to me or not, when the fog-horn ceased to
toot and Mr. Bowser rose up in bed and
“What in blankety blazes are you doing
with my clothes?”
“I wanted the family wallet!”
“Oh, you did! You'get, up at midnight to
rob your husband, do you?”
“But half the money is mine.”
“Mrs. Bowser, you drop that coat and
jump into this bed as quick as heaven will
let you, and if I ever catch you trying to
rob me again I’ll apply for a divorce within
When he thought I was asleep he slipped
out of bed and took the wallet from under
the dresser, where Ho had carefully hidden
it, and inspected the contents to see if any
thin"; was gone. I had firmly made up my
mind never to ask him for a cent, but next
day he seemed so good natured that I ven
tured to say:
“Thera are several little things I badly
need, and as I am going down town this
alternnon I'd better buy them.”
“Certainly, my love. Will a five do?”
“All right—here it is. If five isn’t enough
I took five, and I was just making out a
list of articles which I proposed to buy when
Mr. Bowser came in with a bill in his hand
“Here’s the shade-tree man after his pay.
You may gix-e me that five and I’ll gix r e you
three silver dollars.”
An hour later he sent up a dollar’s worth
of strawberries accompanied by a note ask
ing me to pay for them, and so I got down
town with only S3 in uiv pocket. I made
them go as far as possible, and xvas rather
proud of my purchases wk.cn I got home. I
had them spread on the table of the sitting
room when Mr. Bowser came rushing in
“Say! that colored man is through clean
ing up the alley and I can't make change
xvith him. Haven’t you got a dollar and a
half of that money?”
“Nor a dollar?”
“I haven't a penny left.”
“What! Squandered every cent of that
money! That't just ns I expected! I was
told when I married you that I’d bring
up in the poor-house inside of ten
years, and I begin to believe it was a true
“But, Mr. Bowser, you only gave me two
He was gone before I had finished the
sentence, and during all the evening ho
hadn’t a word to say. I think he felt con
science-stricken, however, for next day he
“Mrs. Bowser, you have the look of a
child, and you don’t know the villainy of
this world any more than a child seven
years old. What I object to is the way
these dry goods clerks swindle you. They
take every advantage of your greenness,and
when they cheat you they rob me.”
“But have I been cheated?”
“Have you! What did you ever buy
that you were not cheated? Mrs. Bowser,
you are no more fit to walk into a dry goods
store xvith a $lO bill in your purse than our
old cat is to judge of a lawn mower! After
this I will do the buying. Is any thing needed
just now ?”
“Why, baby ought to have some now
dresses, and we need some table linen.”
“Very well; I'll see to it."
I knexv about what would happen. He
slipped off early next morning, and was
home by 10 o’clock xvith a back-load of dry
“Dresses for the babv,” lie observed, as he
untied the package. “What do you think of
this—and this—and this? Got 10 per cent,
oir on each pattern and I saw to it that tho
measure was full.”
He held up seven yards of alpaca, a pat
tern in green worsted, a third in striped
summer silk, fourth in second mourning
calico, the fifth and last in satin, which was
as stiff as a Brussels carpet.
“Mr. Bowser, xviiat on earth have

THE RINGS IN TREES.
Little Reliance to be Placed Upon Them
as Indications of Age.
fl\om the Lumber World.
Every day some pet theory, long held and
honestly venerated, Is being demolished and
smt to the limbo of myth with Toll’s apple,
Washington’s cherry tree and other old ac
quaintances. Now the age rings in trees has
U> suffer iimbouization, if the word may le
allowed.. Mr. R. AY. Furras, an agent of the
United States Forestry Department, who
has given much attention to the age of a tree
as indicated by rings, as well as to the pe
riod at which trees of different species slop
growing and that at which the wood is at
its best, has reached some conclusions of
general interest, He says:
“Concentric or annual rings, which were
once accepted ns good legal evidence, fail,
except where climate, soil, temperature, hu
midity and all other surroundings are regu
lar and well balanced. Otherwise they are
mere guesswork. Tho only region within
my knowledge where either rings or meas
urements were reliable indications are in the
secluded even and regularly tempered val
leys of the southern Pacific coast.”
Annual measurements of white, elm, ca
talpa, soft maple, sycamore, pig hickory,
cottonwood, chestnut, box elder, honey lo
cust, coffee tree, burr and white oak, black
walnut, osage orange, white pine, red cedar,
mulberry atid yellow willow (19 species),
made in Southeastern Nebraska, show that
“annual growth is very irregular, sometimes
scarcely perceptible and again quite large,”
and this he attributes to the difference in
seasons. As trees increase in age inner rings
decrease in size, sometimes almost disap
pearing. Diminished rate of growth after
u certain ago is a rule. Of four great
beeches mentioned by Loudon there were
three, each about 17 feet in girth, whose ages
were respectively fit), 103 and 300 years. Mr.
Furras found 13 rings in a black locust (>
years old, 31 rings in a shell-bark hickory of
12 years, 10 rings in a pig hickory of 0 years,
11 rings in a wild crab apple of 5 years, and
only 30 rings in a chestnut oak of 24 years.
Ai\ American chestnut of only 4 years had
0 rings, while a peach of 8 years Inul only 5
Dr. A. M. Childs, a resident of Nebraska
from 1R54 to IRS3. a careful observer tor the
Smithsonian Institution, who counted rings
on some soft maples 11 yearn 3 months old,
found on one side of the heart of one of
them 40 rings and not less than .30 anywhere,
which were quite distinct when the wood
was green, but after it had been seasoned
only 34 rings could be distinguished. An
other expert says that all our Northern hard
woods make many rings a year, sometimes
as many as 13, hut as the hist set of colls in
a year’s growth are very small and the first
very large tho annual growth can always bo
determined except when from local causes
there is in anv particular year little or no
cell growth. This may give a largo number
on one side. Upon the Pacific coast of North
America trees no not reach the point where
they stop growing nearly as early as those
of the Atlantic co:i and, Two hundred years
is nearly r.he greatest age attained on tho
eastern side of the continent by trees that
retain their vigor, while 500 years in the
case of several species on the western const,
and one writer is confident that a sequoia
which was measured was not less than 3,37 ft
years old. At AVrangel, latitude 30° 00', a
Western hemlock, 0 fret in diameter at the
stump, was 4 feet in diameter 133 feet fur
ther up the trunk and its rings showed 483
years. But in the Old Bertram Garden, near
Philadelphia, not more than 150 years old,
almost all the trees are on the down grade.
The Quercus Robar, England’s pride, which
at home is said to live 1,000 years, has grown
to full size and died in this garden, and Iho
foreign spruces are following suit. Silver
firs planted in ISOO are decaying. This great
difference in the longevity of trees upon the
western and eastern coasts of continents in
the Northern Hemisphere seems to be due
to tho warm, moist air carried by strong
and permanent ocean currents, from the
tropics northeasterly, in both the Pacific
aua Atlantic oceans, which make the cli
mate both moist and equable in high lati
tudes. In Sitka, latitude 57°, as much as
100 inches of rain have fallen in a year and
tho harbor is rarely frozen enough to hinder
the passage of boats. In some winters
scarcely any ice is seen.
It Is Certainly Ugly.
Boston Letter to the Providence Journal.
It was my good fortune to be seated one
pleasant afternoon recently on a beautiful
lawn overlooking u most exquisite sweep of
country. My chair was placed near that of
the mistress of the country seat where I was
calling, and on the lawn were her two grown
up daughters. They are both lovely girls,
well-educated, accomplished, faultlessly
dressed and thoroughly accustomed to the
1 icst society both in this country and abroad;
yet the mother sighed as she watched them
walk across tho lawn to gather a bunch of
yellow lilies which were blooming in great
clusters below the hedge.
“Did you ever see anything so ugly as the
way those girls walk?” she asked.
1 was able to say truthfully that I had
seen a good many uglier things.
“They walk like camels,” she declared,
ignoring my disclaimer.
1 should certainly not have thought of
owning it, but one could not hut be struck
by the force and truthfulness of her com
parison. They did wulk like camels. They
could sing divinely; they piay the piano ex
tremely well; one sketches very prettily
while the other is no mean performer on the
violin; French, German and Italian they
read easily and speak at least well enough
to make themselves intelligible to persons
who know the single tongue to which they
were born; and in literature they have an
interest which has led them to read with
very considerable a; mreciation the master
pieces of two or threo countries. But with
ail these accomplishments the fact remains
that they cannot walk well. They hold
their citeovs by tlioir sides and wiggle them
selves forward in a fashion which would be
most painful to see, were it not that we are
all so accustomed to this method of locomo
tion that we have almost come to regard it
as the normal one.
“I do wish,” my hostess continued, “that
somebody would establish a walking school.
We are nil so sophisticated nowadays that
we can do nothing simply and naturally,
and walking must be learned like anything
else, if there were only somebody to teach
“But dancing school,” 1 suggested, with a
conspicuous lack of originulity, “ought to
do something in that line.”
“Oh, no doubt,” was the response; “but it
doesn’t. It is a popular fallacy that if a
girl can dance she must know how to walk,
nut it is nonsense, Elsie (lances like a sylph,
but, as I said, she walks like a camel. She
lias been taught to dance, and she hasn't
been taught to walk.”
“But who is there to teach?”
“That is just the question. There ought
to bo sometexty. You know how Miss Blank
“Yes” i mid.
M r s Blank is a clover young woman, of a
fine old Boston family, who, finding herself
in need of earning her living, had the ori
ginality to hit upon the unique method of
teaching whist ns a means of doing it. Hhe
has plenty of pupils, it is said, and dixw her
work well enough to deserve them.
“Now, why,” continued my companion,
“does not somebody who is nice and a lady
and needs to earn a living take to teaching
girls to walk? I’m sure she’d make a lot of
money and lie conferring a great lienefit, on
the community as well. 1 declare,” she
went on, her eye kindling with the earnest
ness of her purpose, '! am going to try and
find somebody and have the thing started
next fall. It is something wo really ueod,
and it is time we had it.”
Whether this scheme will be carried out
it would bo too much to undertake to su>
but the Idea is not a laid one, and certain!
there is room enough for a walking school
