LONDON , March 18 Lady Florence
DLclo was attacked at Windsor yes
terday by two men dlsgulood in
women's clothes. Her dross was out
with diggers in several places , but she
recalved no Injury. Lady Fhrenco
was walking In a secluded spot near
the woods when the men asked her
what time it was. She replied she
had no watch and afterward : noticed ,
though they were women's clothes ,
their faces had been shaved. Much
alarmed , she started to walk away , was
followed by them , one of whom seized
her. She struggled to escape , but
seeing their daggers , fell in a swoon.
This occurred at 4 o'clock in the after
noon. She did not recover her senses
until 4:45. : Lady Florence has been
prostrated to-day. The story of the
affair was elicited from her only at
intervals. The saving of her life is
attributed to her dog , which is BUD-
posed to have protected her while she
lay In a swoon. Lady Florence had
no reason te suspect immediate danger ,
although she had been somewhat fear
ful since the receipt of a letter abont
the Land League. The lant thing oho
remembers is one of the men pushing
a quantity of mud In bar month. On
her recovery she found both her palms
out across and gloves severed. There
were two dagger holes two Inches
apart in the right breast of her dress
A broad steel corset rib had been
broken by the weapon , which had
penetrated to the inner lining of her
dress at the first stroke and to
her corset at the second stroke.
Lidy Florence supposes she uncon
sciously struggled with the men , as
sisted by her dug , until the scoundrels
"were disturbed by a cart passed the
woods. She received threatening
letters while in Ireland recently.
One of the men were a green dress
and a large hat with a veil. The
yelled man attempted the assassina
tion. No arrests have baen madur.
The police have a slight clue to the
acouudrels. It is believed the men
were bitten In the struggle.
Lady Dixie says her hsad is confused
and puinful. It Is supposed the mis
creants stunned her.
