they have decided to accept the es
trangement of tne Princess and her
huBband as irreparable, They have
made the Cabinet privy to tn6 cir
cumstances of the Princess' flight
as they see them, and a decree of
divorce is talked as necessary se
quence to the princess' resolution
to leave the court forever. -
-This determination the Princess
announced to her husband early in
November, after one of their fre
quent scenes, she also confided her
intention to Beperat9 herself from
-the court and all its "wrechedness"
to two or three of her " intimate
friends, and discussed with "them
the "impossibility of her longer en- J
during the artificial etiquette oi the
oburt and the forced cmopanionship
of a man who was loathsome to her.
The Princess wrote to her mother
at the end , of November that it was
her purpose to r leave the Crown
Prince and give up the prospect of
the Queenehip, .which, instead of
being attractive the Princess fre
quently said was detestible to her.
She formally told members of - her
.entourage that she was going to visit
her parents at Salzburg. The let
ter of the Princess to her mother
brought the Archduchess immedi
ately to Dresden. She implored
bet daughter to reconsider her de
termination and to make the best
of .an unpleasant situation for the
sake of her children, and eee as lit
tle of the Crown Prince as was
The Princess replied, according
to one of her confidants, that she
would see "nothing of that beasf :
that the tutelage of her children
was largely taken out of her hands
and that she could not bear to see
them spoiled by "the hypocricies
of the couft. What she complained
of in the Prince was his intemper
ance, his infidelitie?,- and, as her
partisans affirm, his cruelty of
disposition. They affirm that he
had for years a liason with an
actress named Bastok, and it is re
ported that at a review of troops
at Grimma, a couple of years ago
the Prince fell from his horse intox
icated, in front of his regiment.

M. M. WALTZ,
Administrator of the estate of T . P. Waggoner
rpwo HOUES ago Otis Mcmanaar
; Had recelvea tne disappointment
of his life a womaa'a ,"no!". He had
been trampling the- streets of Louis
ville ever- since,- smoking a number of
Qigars and wondering, what he should
ao witn tne resr. oi cis me. j
Common senso kept'whisperijLg that
Grace Lang-don was not the only wom
an in the world, and that he, Macma
nara, was young, - handsome, and
wealthy, but his heart was beating to
another tune, and he knew it would
keep to that same tune until life was
' "As the gas and electric lig&ts began
their rivalry, common sense gained the
supremacy so far as to cause the-young
man to buy a book and tell himself he
would go home and try to read it. He
had just come out of a book store and
was turning the storm "collar of his
coat up against the driving snow, when
a voice very low and very clear, and
also very close said: "It iswarm In
my home." v
"Did you speak to me?" Macmanara
esked of a gray shadow leaning against
"I said it is warm in my home."
Macmanara laughed. "There is noth
ing so very novel in that factiny good
fellow; there are millions of homes to
night as warm as the tropics, in spite
of the weather outside my ownr f or
instance, to which I am going now." '
"Aieyou going?" It was not the
question only; the voice held a soft, en
chanting cadence that fascinated Mac
"Well, yes, I am sura I shall start for
home as soon as my car turns the cor
ner."' - ' - ' '-
"And I am as equally certain you will
go with me." ' . '
"Since you are so sure of it will you
tellme the name of my wduld-be host?"
and Macmanara "f listened somewhat
eagerly for the .answer which came
"I am the Devil."
"This is interesting. I have had nu
merous indirect invitations to visit
you, Mr. Devil, and a number of my
friends have predicted that my final
resting weuld be with you, but I never
expected you to step up in the flesh
and invite me, and the fact is, I never
in all my life felt so much like going to
you as I do to-night."
At that moment a carriage stopped
outside the curbing, and the coachman
came down to examine the harness.
The carriage door opened and one of '
the occupants asked the cause of the
delay. Macmanara caught sight of the
face that had caused both his joy and
his sorrow. When the carriage moved,
a delicate lace handkerchief gleamed
white beneath the gas light. Only an
instant it lay there the next It was
reposing in Macmanara's coat pocket.
The name daintily written in one cor
ner of the handkerchief was "Gracie."
"Good night, Mr. Devil I really must
be going. If you will take my advice
you will go back to that very warm
home of yours and stay there until
spring, for, as one who knows his
world, I can tell you the weather here .
is going to be very much worse before
long." . .
The gray shadow stepped out into
the full glare of tlie flickering light, re
vealing a handsome young man dressed
In a.sxylish suit of gray. -
I am disappointed," and Macmanara
whistled. "Why, you are a young man
and I thought the Devil was1 as old as
the World. A young man with a 'blond
mustache and no horns! If you want
to masquerade as the Devil why don't
you make up for the part?"
The self-confessed Devil doffed his
hat: "reel," he said.
In striking contrast to' a fair, almost
womanish complexion and' a blond
mustache, his .hair was black as night.
jviacmanara s hands glided slowly over
the bowed head in search of the horns.
They were there, and a thrill crept
down Macmanara's spine as he touched
them. He had jested, with the man, be
lieving him to be a crank, but now, for
some reason, 'he did hot understand.
He was startled.
You are convinced, and will go with
me?" Always soft and low, yet very
clear, the Devil's voice was a melody.
Macmanara looked up. a pair of
clear 'blue eyes, behind which there
seemed to burn a flame eyes unlike
anyne had ever seen, before, looked
straight into his own. The Devil had
possession' of his man in a moment,
but even with his sense enthralled
Macmanara shuddered as he asked: "
"1 must die flrst?" . 1
"No," the Devil answered, emphat
ically, "I want you to go. with me
and see and feel the beauty, comfort
ancr-happiness in my kome and-then
come back to the world in the&flesh
and tell fcow basely I have been ma
ligned," While the Devi was speaking they
were moving straight ; toward - the
river, and when they reached it he
unlocked a skiff and invited, his guest
to step in. ". As the boat went scud
ding down the river Macmanara won
dered where the Devil had learned his
stroke. The Falls City, quickly faded
from view a mere speck in the dis
tance. Macmanara had taken many a
row on the Ohio, 'Doth as boy and
man, but never any like this. ' An
hour ago he was the most miserable
man on earth, now ha was perfectly
happy; there was nothing left for
him to wish for. ,' ' . "
The boat was drifting ow; and at
a place where the rooks shelved over
the bank it stopped suddenly. The
Devil whistled, waited - a moment,
then whistled three' times la rapid
succession. It seemed to Macmanara
that the whole side of the cliff opened
to them and gave forth a light so
dazzling uj its brightness that he had
to close his eyes. The Devil picked
him Up and carried him into a richly
furnished room and put; him down on
a couch piled with cushions. XThere
wetfe ribbons, laces,: satins and siiks,
in chairs, on tables, everywhere in
elegant profusion and comtisuu, but
what impressed Macmanara most and i
what he" couM" hardly take his eyes
rrom was a table, the center of
the room on which was piled, as gen
erously a pebbles on-the' beach, every
known ge'o. Diamonds.-rubies, opals
and pearlthrew a shade over their
smaller sisters and tried hard to out
shine each other in their .fascinating
giow and; glitter; - -.- j ! ' ' .
"My angels are out tornight -on oth
er missions, but I shall do "'my best
to entertain you, and shall be mora
sorry than I can say if I fail," and
the Devil bowed courteously to his
- While he was speaking he placed
a diamond scarf pin and opal ring on
the table. They immediately began
to sparkle a challenge to their neigh
bors. What a familiar look they -had
to Macmanara! The' Devil drew a
chair close to the couch, picked up a
guitar, and the last thing Macmanara
remembered was hearing a rich tenor
voice singing a popular melody.
The next morning when Macmanara
awoke he was in his own room. The
fire in the grate was burning cheerily,
and through the open door he could
see his valet preparing his bath. Out
side the sun .was shining brightly,
taking away the snow as, fast as it
had fallen the night before..
. "What, . a . dreaml" Macmanara
thought, as he sprang out of bed. His
clothes were hanging on the back of
a chair, and there were tiny rivulets
where they had dripped the melted
snow. He 'went through his pockets
and his face fell. Yesterday he had
drawn $2,000 from the bank, vowing
in his heart to go as far from Louis
ville as the money would take him.
This' morning there was not a dollar
in his pocket-7-not even the little
pearl-handled knife he heed carried for
When lie went down to breakfast
his aunt, who was also his house
keeper, looked beyond him efter,say-
ing good morning, evidently expect
ing to greet some one else.
Mow mistaken one can be, Utis,
she, said. "I expected you to bring
company down to breakfast this
morning, for when I heard you come
home last night I was .sure some one
was with you:" - -;
"Maybe there was, and maybe there
wasn't. What would you say, aunt, if
I were to tell you I don't know?"
"If you were anyone else but Otis
Macmanara. I would say you were
drunk, but as you are Otis 1 shall say
you are poking fun at your old aunt."
When the papers were brought in
Macmanara glanced over the : head
lines of the Courier-Journal, as was
his custom, andthe following fast
ened his eyes:.
X "AT THE MORGUE."
Found drowned in the river at two o'clock
this morning, the body of a young man
of medium size, fair complexion and a
blond mustache. A lace handkerchief
marked "Gracie" was all that was found In
the dead man's pockets.
That's the Devil!" and with the ex
clamation Macmanara rushed for his
hat and overcoat, leaving his startled
aunt to think he had gone insane.
"Yes," the morgue, keeper replied
to Macmanara's eager questions, "the
poor fellow was brought here at an
early hour tnis morning. -Inis Hand
kerchief was the only thing about
him that may lead to his identity,
and that has only one chanoe in. a
thousand. If his sweetheart reads
the morning papers and. of course
the handkerchief is his sweetheart's
she'will be here in a short While,'
and, if she doesn't read them, he may
go to his grave unnamed.': ' . '.
Macmanara examined the. features
of the dead man closely.- It was his
Devil of the night before, minus the
black "hair, in place of w.hich there
was a closely-cropped blond head. , As
Macmanara was leaving the morgue
he almost ran over Grace Larigdon,
who caught his arm and cried out:',"
"Oh, Otis, .it is really you, -and you
are not drowned, with my thandker
chief in. your pocket? I was going to
the opera," tne little lady explained,
"and something got wrong with the
horses as we were leaving Chestnut
street, and the coachman stopped to
see what it was. My escort opened
the carriage door for the same pur;
pose, when I saw you and dropped
my handkerchief to see if you would
pick it up, and the way you pounced
upon it kept me happy for the rest
of the evening. I lost my opal ring,
too, but I don't care, for it was al
ways bringing me bad luck."
.' Macmanara. thought of the ring as
he had last seen it flash by the side
6f his scarfpin on a table with thou
sands of other jewels, but he did not
tell his wife-to-be of his adventure
with the Devil.. He asked instead:
; "Gracie, why is it a woman will tell
a man no, make him feel all the mu
ery of hades, when in" her heart he
"I-jJpn't know, Otis,-unless it is to
make him understand how much he
cares and give him the pleasure of
proposing over again," she answered,
