Then Italy had n great charm for mo,
tho chnrin which resides in so inntiy

mind, among them the tragedy of the

no thought of washing themselves. Thu
I swarm of small children weto squalid,
tho women slattern, ugly, forbidding.
Thu husbands and fathers weio absent,
earning their daily pittnnce, except a
few old and decrepit men, who might
hnvo been superannuated brigands. Thu
broad stairways nnd high arches, filthy
and broken, served to remind one of
tho departed mnjesty of the edifice.
1 wtit up nnd down stairs resolute

swarthy Inmates, who evidently ro
gnrdel me ns ono of tho crazy

tributing Ktuall coins among them, but
thoy could give me no information.
Thoy seemed novcr to hnvo heard of the
Cenci: 1 might us well hnvo nsked them
about Nutna Pompillus or Tnrqiiintns
Priscus. They bellove, however, that
tho plnce is lmunted this is nn old tra

hearing sobs, cries nnd tnoaim after tho
manner of tho superstitious. If there
wero any ghosts, the rr'ned pnlnee
would be eminently pro; i lor them to
stnlk in. If I were u ghost, und did not
mind dirt, I might select it myself.
All tho whilo I wns thero 1 kept mar
veling in whnt room tho lovely Beatrice
Cenci hnd slept, and if her dlnholic father
could renlly hnvo abused mid tortured
her, us lias been recounted. Wlmt a
hideous story it isl Shall I repent it? It
I may bo now in certnin of its details to
many readers. Thero nro different ver
j sions, but they nil ngree in substance.
' Count Francesco Cenci wns ono of
I tho richest nnd most powerful lords of
J the Sixteenth century, his father having
been minister of finnnco to Popo Pius
; IV. A grenter monster, nccordlng to
nccounts, never lived. Ho wns ns in
famous as' Nero, Caliguln, Commodns,
or nny of tho vilest emperors of nncient
Rome. He seems to hnvo been as near
as possible totnlly depraved. Muratori,
the Italian historian, narrates in his
Annals that ho was twico mnrrlcd.(whnt
should such a wretch as lie want of u
wife?), Beatrice being, with eleven other
children, the product of the first mar
riage. Ho tinted theso children with a
fiendish hate, after lie had tnken a sec
ond wife, as if they had been his bitter
est foes. Ho was accused of causing tho
murder of two of tiis sons at tho hands
of his hired bravos, and tio trented every
body with wanton cruelty. Beatrice
wns so beautiful that sho inspired liiui
with nu incestuous passion, and tio per
becutod her, day after day, until ho
finally accomplished his infernal pur
poso. Having sought tho protection of
her kinsmen and of Pope Clement VIII
to no purpose, sho was so nroused to
frenzy by her wrongs ns to conspire with
tier brothers nnd her stepmother to kill
If ever tinman croaturo wero justified
in committing parricide, she was cer
tninly. Such a villain us tho count
needed to bo swept from tho enrth j ho
wns a moral pestilence. Thero are t,ev
ernl reports of tho manner in which
Francesco wns removed. Ono is thnt
Mgr. Ouerra, who wns in love with
Bentrico (any man might have been ex
cused for lnvinir her. if n littl nt wlmt
.....0 ..u.f .. ,.,,w v .Mill.
j has been told of her be true), joined
I with Beatrice and her brothers, Bcr
t nnrdo und Giacomo, to rid themselves of
I this human fiend. They engaged two
desperadoes to waylny him nnd kill him
, whilo lie wns on his wny to Petrelln, n
I grim castle in tho Sabino hills, near tho
rseapolitnn frontior. Their attempt wuh
frustrated, whereupon Bentnce nnd her
stepmother, goaded to desperation, drug
ged ttie count's wiue in the palace, and
introduced into his room, whilo lie wns
in a stupor, two assassins, wtio dispatched
him, Sept. 0, 150S. by driving a nail into
his eye, penetrnting tiis brain.
Some writers contend that Beatrice
wns guiltless of tier father's death, and
that nothing could bo proved against liar
at tho trial; that his slayers wero two of
his own hirelings whom ho had injured
so foully that they thtu took rovmgo.
Otio'of tho tnou confeisoil, Implicating
the Concls. Thoy wore put to dreadful
torture, And Oiacomo nnd his step
mother confessed, ns nny ono might do,
to escape tho exquisite pain. But Bea
trice, though n dellcnto girl of only six
teen, with tierolo fortitude refused lo
Implicate herself, and won thereby thu
enthusiastic ndmtrntlou of the sternest,
most pitiless men.
As thu Cuncln wero connected with
tho most lllustilous families of Homo a
greal elTort was tnndo to mivo thorn. Tho
renowned advocato Farinnccl defended
them ably and eloquently, urging in
their bohnlf, oven If ctilpnblti, tho dread
fill vices nnd crimes of thu count, which
weio well known in the highest circles
of society, parllculnrly lo tho eccleslm
tics. But nothing availed, Tho pope,
who wns autocrat then, and continued
to bo until quite recently In his own do
minions, might hnvo shown clemency,
hnd not tho Princess of 8anta Crocu at
thnt juncture been murdered by her son.
Tho highest nobility were in tho habit
of committing tho most utrocibim crimes
In thoso days with perfect Impunity.
Pillage, ravishment, poisoning, hired us
misslnatlon, overy nort of Iniquity, wero
cultivated along with literature and tho
arts. Romu wns tho center of overy
conci'lvnblo form of wlckudiiusnnt which
Justice ordinarily winked unless moved
by reasons of policy,
Tho Santa Croce murder nlnrmed
Clomont VIII, who thought thnt an ex
amplu must lie made, lu thu liopo of dis
couraging private assassination, then so
common in Rome. Ho determined,
therefore, that tho Cencl should miller,
and tils will was omnipotent. Ho is snld
by some authorities to have beun Influ
enced to destroy them by tils desire to
confiscate thu rich estates of Count Fran
cesco to thu holy see, something to
which the popes in that and lu later
centuries wero addicted. Tho famous
Villa Borghese, which all tourists re
member, for it Is ono of tho stock
sights of the Eternal City, was pnrt
of tho Cencl property, all of which
wns given to the Borglieso nnd Aldo
braudini families, kinsmen of Popo
Clement nnd his Miceessor, Paul V.
Eveiy kind of corruption nnd villainy,
from wholesale (daughter and the sack
ing of towns to forging wills and the
practice of simony, was so much the
custom that crime caused no horror.
But severe punishment, especially exe
cutions, awakened tho most animated
interest, stirring Homo to its depths.
When it wuh known thnt Oiacomo
Cenci (thu younger brother, Bernardo,
hud been acquitted for want of evi
dence), Bentrico nnd their stepmother
her maiden name wns Lucrezla Petroni
wore to bo lieheuded, tho whole city
wns oxcited and eager to witness the
closing sceuo. Tho Romans have for
ages been devoted to every species of
show or spectacle, and retain this form
of devotion to tho present. The scaffold
was erected near tho Castle of Sant' An
gelo, a momorablo pile, long used as a
state prison, and built around tho tomb
of tho Emperor Hadrian.
Beatrice, who has been confined in tho
cnstlo nearly a year, is naturally tho ob
ject of all eyes. Sho is very palo nnd
worn, having been mengerly fed in hor
dark, damp dungeon, und showing truces
of iutenso mental nnd physical suffering.
Tlioso graceful limbs hnvo boon twisted
until tho bones cracked and wero ne;irly
dislocated. From those hazel eyes tours
of agony hnvo been wrung, while tho
strong will kept bnck tho words for
which tho tortuiers anxiously waited.
Tlioso golden t reuses hnvo been almost
torn out. Shu has been nicked again
und nguin, nnd yet her great soul con
quered her soft nature and kept it firm
ns rock. Desplto all sho has endured her
step is firm as shu moves toward tho
pcuifold; n faint smilo of resignation
plays about her sweet lips; a strango light,
as of another nnd a better world, rests
upon nnd illuminates her lovely face.
Sho looks to tho vnst Catholic crowd
llko an angel descended from heaven,
ready to atone with touching putieuco
for tho sins of mankind.
A feeling of deep awe for the beautiful
girl creeps through thousands of hearts
in thnt pitying, superstitious throng,
nnd they need only a commanding voice
to snatch her from her doom. But the
voice comes not, nnd sho soon ascends
the platform, unaided, and awaits the
headsman without a tremor. Clad in
white robes, with her confessor at her
side, she embraces her brother and
mother-in-luw, kisses tho crucifix pre
sented to her, puts back her abundant
hair, with a serene smile lays her beauti
ful head upon tho block, and in another
moment it is severed, with a heavy thud
and n gush of blood, from the symmetri
cal trunk. Tho vast concourse starts
with n half suppressed groan und a thrill
of horror, and thu brief, clouded, tragic
life of tho ill starred Beatrice is ended.
Sho continues to live, however, on can
vas und in marblo, in song and story,
and will yet livo through coming cen
turies embalmed in tho pathos of her un
numbered woes. Tens of thousands of
wnyfnrers will in tho future visit, ns I
hnvo done, the scenes of her misfortunes
and her distressing exit, to reeat, as
their sole comment. "Poor, poor Ben
trico!" Her remains wero buried in tho vault
of tho Church of San Pietro, in Monto
rio, and thero they still repose. She
wny have been somewhnt idealized by
time nnd through her borrows, but thero
is no rational doubt that she was n brave
nnd beautiful maiden, nnd tried as few
hnvo been in tho furnnco of undeserved
affliction Tho celebrnted painting iu
tho Bnrberini palace, attributed to Guido
Reni and familiar to all persons inter
ested In art through countless copies and
engravings, is not, ns has been generally
supivosed, a portrait of Beatrice. I used
to think so, in coinman with everybody
else, but 1 nm glnd to know otherwise.
I never could understand how tho origi
nnl could have so insipid, so character
less a face. It is far better to leave thu
