VIENNA. March . (New York Worla

Maria Josephs, the first lady In Aus
trla. though not ret 85 years old, wear
took of settled sadness on her beautiful
face. She presides at the splendid court
eererosnlals with a winning gracs that has

Mother of the future emperor, the con
sort of Prlncs Otto Is yet one ot the un
happiest princesses In Europe. Ths Influ
ence of ths emperor hlmaelt Is all that has
kept her from leaving her husband and It
Is well known that she Is a sacrifice to ths
welfare of the stats. At leaat three times
ah has been hardly dlasusded from suing
for divorce because of her husband's Ill
treatment of her.
.It Is she who opens all ths court balls
which so astonish visitors, not only by
their magnificence, but also by the early
hours prescribed. At 7:10 ths guests begin
to arrive, though the ball room Is not
thrown open till 8:30. Ths arrival of the
lord chamberlain at o'clock Is ths signal
that ths Imperial party approaches. A
wavs of his staff of offloe clears a pathway
In ths middle of the room and, preceded by
ths master of ceremonies,, ths emperor,
conducting the archduchess, appears.
While shs holds court among ths ladies,
ths ruler mingles with his guests. If
young girls ars to bs presented to the arch
duchess. Otto receives them In an adjoin
ing audience room.
With ths first waits, nnder ths direction
of Johann Strauss of ths third generation,
the young archduchess, with a member of
the nobility previously chosen, leads off the
Folate of White oad Gold.
. Ths magnificent apartment, all whits and
gold, presents a scene never to bs forgotten.
Its multitudinous electric lights shine on
ths dassllng uniforms of Hungarian and
Polish dignitaries, the gaudy rostumss of
ths diplomatic corps and the .superbly ar
rayed Austrian women, who delight In a
splendor ot Jewelry that heightens ths ef
fect ot their sumptuous toilets, . .
But through all this gorgeous display ths
archduchess moves with a faraway dignity
that, whlls It is In the picture, is not of
ths festivity she dominates.
Ths wife of the wild nephew of Francis
Joseph, It Is asserted, has been struck
twice by her royal spouse when he waa In
Ills cups, and that ones at least ths emperor
wun nis own hand, in ths presence of all
the commanding officers of ths garrison,
repaid Otto blow for blow.
At one time the maudlin archduke at
tempted to penetrate to bis wife's apart
ments with a handful of drunken compan
ions while shs lay 111. but an officer with
drawn sword hsld them back. Otto's
capades bavs long been the scandal of
Reaaaclatloa of the Throne.
Sines her brother. Archduke Prens Fsrdl
hand, renounced all rights to ths throns
(or his Issue, Otto's son Karl, now IS ysars
Did, has stspped Into the Una ot succession.
Ths renunciation . was . ths sequel to ths
tnorganatlo marrlags of Archduke Prans
Ferdinand, ths heir presursptivs, to Coun
tess Chotek, formerly a lady-ln-wafting to
a Auatrlaa grand ducheaa, ths cousin of
the emperor. When Ferdinand's Infatuation
became evident shs waa bundlsd oft to hsr
Bohemian home, where he followed her... To
Become ths husband of ths woman hs loved.
Who because of ber Interior station could
neither stsnd by his slds at court nor bear
Jslra children to wear the crown, he gave tip
all pretensions for his posterity In favor ot
bis brother s son.
Maria Josephs is ths sacrlflca. She bears
the burden and tor the saks of ths state
maintains her wifehood. . ;
The assassination of Empress Elisabeth
Xnade her the first lady In Austria's proud
court, for Crown 'Prlncs Rudolph's tragic
death at Meyerllng for the saks ot ths
Jovely Marls Vsteera, who died with him had
left the succession to bis cousins; and ths
ttorganatlo wlfs of ths elder cousin, Frana
Ferdinand, bad no stand at court.
Coart Boll a Splendid Affair.
Ths emperor recently went to Buda-Psst
on purpose to hold a court ball and opsn
for ths first Urns soma ot ths magnlflcsnt
rooms In ths new palace sa ths hills of
fiuda, which ths Hungarlsns did not let
him build with his swn money, but which
was built snd decorated and furnished at
ths expense of the Hungarian nation. The
tourt ball proved a splendid affair, with
those gentlemen who were not officers all
la ths fins old Hungarian dress, satin, bro
cade, velvet and fur. ,
Many noblemen of old lineage would have
liked to wear ths beautifully mellowed
costumes worn by their ancestors In ths
days of Hungary's glory, but ttms had
used them hard. New French allk weavers
copied thess material, giving them the
tints which It was believed old sgs alons
Impart, and soms of ths nsw dresses wora
at ths last court ball wars exquisite.
No oos In ths world has such jewels as
ths Hungarlaa noblemen, cameos and cut
glass, old turquoises and pearls ot quaint
haps, all mounted la classlo styls, ths
work ot Italian goldsmiths whom Hungarian
kings attracted to thslr courts.
Ths loose coat wora ovsr tho cassock Is

MARSEILLES, March I. (Nsw York'
World Cablegram Special .Telegram.) A
strange duel was tought lately In the Mar-
eetlies Zoo between the only adult gorilla
in Europe and hla keeper. The gorilla waa
killed after a fight lasting twenty minutes.
In which the keeper was so horribly
mangled thst hs died five hours sfter.
The famous gorilla wss nsmed Francois.
Hs was ons of ths largest species snd al
ways had been perfectly tractable, showing
sspeclal affection for his keeper, a man
named Journoux, until ths lstter married
few weeks ago.
Ths bride visited ths Zoo often snd the
gorilla was sensitive about the sttentlon
shs showed htm. When he perceived thst
sbs undoubtedly vreferred his keeper Frsn
cols becsms mors and more Jealous and
nally Journoux found It Impossible to ap
proach ths gorilla, snd especially when Mrs.
Journoux wss In sight.
Two days ago Francois was so surly and
quiet that ths keeper thought hs was sick
nd entered ths cage to comfort him. The
gorilla Immediately sprang upon ths keeper.
Journoux held a short tsmer's fork, which
lone socounts for the fight lasting so long.
It being dinner time, all ths other keepers
bsd withdrawn to a distant ahsnty. Only
three children witnessed ths terrible fight
snd they were so frightened they failed to
fetch help until Journoux had succeeded in
escaping from the cage.
The gorilla followed betors ths door
could bs shut and the duel was continued
outside, from one end of tho building to
ths other, as Is shown by ths bloodstains.
Finally ths children ran away yelling. By
the time help arrived ths gorilla had been
killed. The keeper was found with ons eys
torn out, rspldly losing blood from many
wounda and laboriously trying to crawl
away on all fours. One nana naa oeen
completely chewed oft and the lower lip
and part of tba chin had been bitten off.

Maxim thinks ths Marconi system win not
bs a dangerous competitor ot the cable
companies for transatlantic business. Hs
argues chiefly oa the difficulty of securing
secrecy or evsa certainty, ssylng: . Aa
enemy in time of war may set up a wavs
making apparatus of very great power, giv
ing off waves of all amplitude and making It
absolutely imposslbls to work any system
of wireless telegraphy. The attuning of a I
transmitter or receiver to a certain pitch
is only feasible to a limited extent, say a
doien different kind ot waves. -
Suppose In war two hostile fleets were
concerned, number on' depending on ths
ordlnsry system of signalling, number. two.
depending oa wireless telegraphy. It would
v.. A.iti tit nrnvlda fleet number one
with an apparatus for making such 4 eon-
fusion of waves as to render the apparatus
ot fleet' number two absolutely useless.
Marconi now baa ths atmosphere to hlm-
self, but when others enter the Hold and
all ars making their littls waves, though
they may not interfere with ons another,
nevertheless ths operator who receives them
and reduces them to ths English languaga
wUl have rather a difficult task.
Tho Marconi system undoubtedly has
enormous value, chiefly for ships signalling
sach other or with shore during fogs. Cable
companies and Marconi can both live In
ths ssms world In perfect accord. Ons sys
tem will not Interfere with tho other. The
Marconi can perform new. services without

Whltfleld, 158 Lexington street."
There were reports from Lowell residents
thst Mtss Whltfleld bad been seen In Lowell

theory of "a woman In tbs case" that the
omcers are working. When closely ques
tioned by ths sheriff todsy, Klump broks
broke down and cried Ilka a child. "I think
were must be a woman In the case," he
said, "and It I could only tell you I would.
out i aon't know anything about It."

Pleas for Today.
When Jan Kubellk, violin virtuoso, msde
his graceful bow at Boyd's theater last
night and drew hla maglo bow across ths
strings he played for sn audience that
filled the house from the cheirs usually
occupied by the orchestra to ths rsmotsst
sest In the lofty gallery and even for a tew
others who were In their own home blocks
away, with their ears st their telephones.
For his performsnce Kubellk's managers
received 82.000, but the admission totsl wss
nearly 83,800 snd the local commutes ot
Bohemlsns have, above all expenses sbout .
8800 as the nucleus of a fund with which it
la proposed to educate two students at
Prague, where Kubellk studied.
Kubellk Is a Bohemian and It wss dis
tinctly a Bohemian night. Everywhere were
seen buttons besrlng the violinist's face
snd always with ths rsd and whits of his
native land entwined about it. There were
Bohemians In soms ot ths boxes, all over
the lower floor and up to the roof, many
of them contesaedly In a theater for tba
first tlms In many, many years. But the
applauding did not devolve entirely upon
them. It came spontsneously snd from
everywhere whenever Kubellk paused, aad
It would not cease until he "had appeared
again and again, and played at leaat 'one
encore. Society was there and was fired
with a new delight that msds dainty hands
as active aa the larger, rougher ones In
expressing ths common joy. There wss
dignity In all the demonstrations, however, .
and the nearest approach to an Impassioned
outburst wss wbsn a masculine voice far up
In the balcony aang out a lusty "Bravo!"
Coming; of tho Crowd.
The first Installment of the crowd came
to the theater at 7 o'clock, but the doors
were not opened until a half hour later. At
8 o'clock carriages deposited the smart
set, and for the next twenty mtnutss tba
lobby of the theater was filled with thoss
waiting to entsr. 1
Kubellk himself was ready before the
crowd, was. He csme to tba stsge door
promptly at 8 o'clock in company with the
members of his party and his first words
were "Hello, old maa, I'm glad to see yOu,"
addressed to a friend who waa awaiting
him. A minute later he stepped Into his
dressing room, attended by bis valet, bear
lng tha invaluable violin and permitted tbe
removal of hla fur-lined overcoat and the
aeroy nat that bad covered his long black .
hair. His "primping" required less than a
minute, and when be emerged his excellent
fitting black dress suit was noted to bear '
not a single ornsment other than a smalt
gold chain strung from ons pocket of bis
vest to ths other.. His cheery smlls waa
constant and his cordiality so genersl as
to incorporate even the colored guardian ot '
tbe stsge door. , '
Kobellk Before Golnaf On.
His valet brought him his violin and bow
and the virtuoso took them as tenderly and
lovingly as a mother would her babe. But
he did not sound a nots until bsck In his
Crossing room with the door shut. There
he drew the bow gently across the strings
less than a doien times snd was ready.
But the crowd was not, for the tardy ones
had not been taken to their seats and
rapidly back and forth behind the scenery
and his fingers wers ever on the strings,
twitching nervously. Ths smile fsded from
his lips, a slight perspiration started and
when he spoke at all It was a hurried whist -.
per 'and tbe words were Bohemlsn. vThs
strain was telling and finally he walked,
almost rsn, to Julius Skrlvan, tbs calm'
old lmpresssrio who "discovered" him
three years ago when he was ' In hla 19th
year and who haa been with him con
stantly ever sines, both In Europe and
America. Skrfvsn understood and grasped
tbe hand (It was ths left) which ths boy
extended to him sod held It firmly for some .
minutes, rubbing tbs fingers just enough
to accelerats ths circulation. Kubellk's Up
parted In a smile that forever refuted the
assertion that "hs hss never loved" aad
hs bscsms cslmer. Even the foot encsssd
In dainty slippers cut so low thst abova
ths knotted ribbon was dlsplsyed several
Inches of hla drop-stitched hoss, csased to
pat tbs floor ao nervously and hs thrust
his instrument between bis knees to adjust
a brldgs that already seemed as correctly
righted as a bridge could ever be..
Stands Like a Soldier.
When all was still In tha auditorium. Mr.
Gorllts, managing the tour for Dsslel
Frohman, beckoned Kubellk and the boy
faced the stags liks a soldier with hesd
erect and shoulders back. His fingers
twltchsd hsrder thsn ever and ths smlls
hsd sgsln vanished, but bs was calm and
when hs stspped out Into ths glars of the
lights It wss with a firm step thst brought
a sigh of both prlds and relief from his
friends In ths wings.
From thst moment Kubellk wsa master,
not only of himself, but of all about him. A
wavs of applause swept tip to him in greet
ing, another and even louder one followed
at his first pause, and whin, twenty-five
minutes after hs went en, hs cams bsck
Into ths wings ths auditors wsre ssndlng
sfter him the roar ot such a dsmonstratloa
as haa not bsea heard in ths thsatar In
years. And Kubellk was happy. His smlls
wss radiant and through the rest of the
evening he laughed and joked with all
about him and the boyishness of his nsture
