to Out Her Property.
Nrw York March 30. At midnight
Counsellor Ambroe II. Purty visited Ihe
police headquarters and exhibited a dispatch
from Emory A. Storrs of Chisago requesting
him to hunt up a young woman named Mary
Ann Dooley. aged 18. Mr. Purty demanded
an interview with her as he said he under-
stood she was confined In the building. This
was granted and then the Counselor called
on the acting superintendent of police and
requested that Miss Dooley be arraigned this
morning for a hearing. It was alterwards as-
certained that she was charged with having
poisoned her mother who died about amonlh
ago under suspicious circumstances. The
woman was supposed to be worth $200000.
No verified will was found but a copy of an
alleged will was unearthed and an investiga-
tion was followed by the (11 htof the daughter
and a young man supposed to be her suitor.
Upon the arrival of the train in the Grand
Central depot the girl was arrested but the
young man escaped. The prisoner is of slight
figure has a dark complexion dark hair and
hazel eyes. She appeared to be overwhelmed
with mortification and protests her Innocence
saying she always loved her mother and they
never had any differences excepting about
her engagement with her lover John Sessions.
Her mother did not like him but she did. A
writ of habeas corpus has been prepared and
will be submitted to the Supreme court to-
day. Tho (Jlicun'M 1'nrilon.
The chiefs of police in this country are re-
ceiving circulars from London offering
jlooo reward and the Queen's pardon to
any one not an actual perpetrator who will
give information leading to the arrest of the
persons or person who on March 15 placed
dynamite in the office of the local Govern-
ment Hoard and the Times building.
O'Donovan Uossa says he knows nothing
of the plot to blow up the public building's in
Liverpool or of the men who have been ar-
rested in Cork on suspicion of belonging to a
secret society and that it pays certain men
or such sensational reports would not be ca-
bled. He adds: "I belong to a secret
society for the destruction of England. Its
headquarters are not in Cork nor has it been
in England for 18 years. I see that orders
have been issued for closing at sunset the pas-
sage which underlies Gladstone's residence. I
will open that passage with bombs.
Truglo lluil ot 11 Venilottu.
A tragedy of a singular kind was enacted the
other day in a village of the Department of
Vaucluse called Chcval-Blanc. Ten years
ago an Italian navvy who had been working
on the railway then in course of construction
was tried for manslaughter the witness who
was mainly instrumental in securing his con-
viction being a peasant belonging to the vil-
lage of Chcval-Blanc. The navvy was sen-
tenced to 10 yean' penal servitude and on
leaving the dock he declared that when he had
served his time he would come back and take
his revenge. About a fortnight ago he re-
appeared at the village and meeting the wife
of the peasant told her that she might con
sider her husband a dead man. She at once
gave information to the gendarmerie of his
presence in the district but he eluded the
search made for him and made his appearance
at the farmhouse inhabited by the peasant
early on Sunday morning. The man was still
in bed and when he looked out of the window
and recognized the Italian he took up a gun
which he kept by his bedside and fired two
shots killing his would-be murderer on the
spot. The Italian was armed with a revolver
anu a long Kniic.
A French Mother Hhllitoii.
From tho Now York Sun.
Hardly had people recovered from the
nerve-shattering sooth-saying of Mother Ship-
ton when the weird words of wind-compelling
Wiggins set them wild again. Anu now ere
Wipe-ins Is well rubbed from recollection two
ancient prophecies have been unearthed for
Ihe present year. One is from the writings of
Nostradamus a french astrologer 01 me loth
century which may be thus rendered :

Tho Man llecuute ot Whom MademoUelle
Feyghlne Committed Suicide.
The Duke de Moray of Parts whose ar-
rival is daily expected at Washington has a
history. The Duke is a young man not yet
30 but he has run a career on the continent'
which has given him a world-wide notoriety.
He has been in New York for several weeks
and the scoiety gossips of Gotham have it
that he is wife hunting. His name has.been
disagreeably associated with that of a very
wealthy New York belle and heiress who
has been accused of wanting to marry him
but who recently gave the story the lie by
marrying Mr. Robert Pell a Wall street
broker to whom she had been engaged for a
long time. The Duke may have been anxious
to wed the heiress but the sequal show: that
she had different views. Daudet is said to
have drawn the character de Mora in his
famous novel "The Nabob" from the elder
de Moray all France recognizing the portrait.
The young Dnke has "cut it fat" to use a
current vulgarism and although he inherited
millions his fortunes are said to be at a low
ebb. The story of his desertion of the beau-
tiful Russian actress Mile. Feyghine and her
suicide afterward in his apartments is still
fresh In the minds of many people. It was
the sensation ot Paris and may have precipi-
tated the nobleman's departure.
Slurried the Coachman.
Harteord. Conn.. March to. Miss Ann
llrooker a pretty girl living in Torrington
Conn. has eloped with her father's negro
coachman. Toscph Bradley. A short time ai!o
she went to New York on a visit and when
she left there instead ol coming home as her
friands supposed she was going to do she
took the Housatonic road and went to Ashley
falls Mass. where she met Jiradiey as had
been arranged and they went to Sheffield and
were married. She is a young woman of fine
appearance 24 years old and is of good family
her tamer ueing one 01 tne prominent men 01 the
town and in good circumstances living about
a mile and a half from the village on the road
She is the youngest of six daughters and.
has one brother. Her mother is dead. She
had always conducted herself in a proper
manner and no one ever suspected there was
anything improper between the two. Bradley
is a full blooded African and worked for her
father three years. Last week when Mr.
Brooker discovered the whereabouts of her he
went to Ashley Falls with his son and tried
to persuade her to return. She refused to
listen to them. Miss Brooker's conduct is in
explicable. !as her home relations have been
pleasant and she has grown up in luxury
and refinement. Her family feel the disgrace
keenly and all sympathize with them.
An Antidote for Malarial rover.
The value of the encalyptus tree as an ati-
dote for malarial fever appears to have been
satislactonly demonstrated at the "three
Fountains" on the Roman Campagna. The
place is not far from the city and according
to tradition St. Paul met his death there.
This whole region is noted for its insalubrity;
in fact the name of "Roman fever" has come
to be almost synonymous with fatal malarial
poison. But a few years ago a colony of
Trappists took up their abode at the Three
fountains ana in spue 01 tne demonstra-
tions against religious organizations
they have been permitted to re-
main there. The reason is not far to seek.
It was found impossible even to give away the
property to any one else. For the same reason
also doubtless a convict camp has been
established there. Well when the Trappists
took up their residence at the Three Fountains
they began at once to punt eucalyptus trees
with the result that water which used to stand
a few inches below the surface of the cround
can no longer be found without digging sev-
eral feet. Formerly the colonists did not dare
live altogether on the marshes. They would
do a few hours' work there daily and then re-
turn home to Rome to sleep. Several of their
number died. But now the air is better and
save in the summer time the brothers live both
day and night at the Three Fountains. Over
100000 trees all told are growing the fewr
is no longer fatal and the eucalyptus which
has produced good results in Algeria Corsica
and the south of France is seen to have done
so at Rome also.
The average rate of charge on the Ameri-
can railways per ton of passengers for a mile
is $3 26; the average per mile for a ton of
freight was $1 zo per ton per mile. The
profit made out of carrying a ton of passen-
gers a mile was 86.8 cents; the profit 'out of
carrying a ton of freight a mile was 0.53 cents.
It is estimated ihat the New York police
department requires about 1700 running feet
of locust clubs to supply the force on night
duty. Every policeman using a club must
have two running feet. His efficiency is esti-
mated by the pound
