PARI3, June 7. Young Mrs. Shangley of
New York, who was Introduced to the shah
of Persia in Paris two years ago, recently
took several gondola rides with him In
Venice, where she and her husband chanced
to be. She says the eastern potentate Is
not so uncouth ss he is pain-ted, that he
converses Intelligently about music and
scenery, and Is especially Interested in the
marvels of modern science. He expresses
great admiration for physicians and de
scribed several surgical operation per
formed under his eyes by his European
physicians, of whom he has three, one
French, one Austrian, one English. The
shah's present hobby Is to have his capital
searched for cases requiring surgical help
nd have them taken to Ails palace, where
he watches the operations. The patients
are generously cared for thereafter.
Mrs. Shangley says the shah speaks
French brokenly, yet enough for conversa
tion, but knows no English, except the
words "No good." Under the tutelage of
his European physicians, who are his con
stant companions, hs has lost much of his
former prtmlllvenesa. The shah Is still ex-
ravagantly fond of bon-bons, and aomo
times eats three pounds in a day. Mrs.
Shangley won his undying friendship by
giving a genuine American candy pulling
party one evening In the shah's apartments
at a hotel In Venice. The potentate was
amazed to see the flexible mass worked Into
pretty combination of vivid colors.
American Buffalo Give One and a
Bear and Elephant tha

(Copyright, 1902, by Tress Publishing Co.)
PARIS, June 7. (New York World Ca
blegram Special Telegram.) Three an
imals, one a native American, the others
naturalized, gave Paris lively emotions
Wednesday. The American beast was an
old, vlctous buffalo, which, when being re
moved from one of the Paris zoos Jumped
out of a boat, swam across the river and
started on a galloping visit to the Latin
quarter. He was only captured after such
a bull fight aa the arenas of Madrid and
Mexico will never duplicate.
Two days later, Just at daybreak, the
street sweeper and first paaaersby were
paralyzed on meeting an elephant and a
bear traveling leisurely and apparently on
the chummiest terms down the Rue de
RlvolL The shop, fortunately, were still
closed.' The animals, which were unaccom
panied, stopped, started again, poked Into
a side street and then returned. The pair
finally arrived at the Place de la Bastile,
where both went Into the canal and drank
as quietly as It they were In the heart of a
Jungle. A big squad of police turned out,
but nobody knew how to tackle the beasts
and aa long as they were harmless the cap
tain hated to order them shot. The crowd
grew to Immense proportions and Its clam
orlng angered tho bear, which grew ugly
and trotted away, preceded, followed and
escorted by a guard of honor of twenty
mounted police. Then a cab came tearing
along with Jimmy Lane, the American
keeper of tha animals, who grabbed the
bear by the scruff of the neck, led him to
where the elephant was contentedly graz'
tng on the flower beds of the square, and
with the aid of volunteers the beast was
haokled and led to a neighboring stable
yard. The keeper explained that ha be
longed to the Barnum 4 Bailey show and
had been sent to deliver the animals, which
had been sold to a French circus and that
during his temporary absence the elephant
had battered down the doors of the shed
where be had been kept over night.

There are two countries from which It

by several, but most of them cite the de

Jingoism. The public, however, was amazed
to discover the strange slmlllarlty of certain

Wilson was coming toward the canal and
Hadley going out, "both loaded. Juat befor

tug to go to Superior. Immediately It

crashed directly Into Wilson.
Steamer Quickly Sink.
Wilson went down so quickly that It
did not seem possible to save a life. On
moment the two boats were plowing
through the water 200 yards apart; th
next the members of the crew could be seen
throwing off their clothing and Jumping
Into the water. One man on Wilson,
with great presence of mind threw lit pre

The crew of Hadley also threw preserver

Two men that Jumped last were appar
ently clinging to the hull when it went
down. They were struggling there Just be
fore the plunge and could not be seen aft

Steering Apparatus Fall to Work.
Hadley's steering apparatus seemed to be
out of order after the collision and it
swung round a circle several times and
seemed utterly helpless. However, Its
crew did good work. In a few minutes It
wa evident Hadley was going down and
the crew could be seen lowering boats.
Some of them got into boats, but when
Hadley sunk to within a foot of ita deck
It seemed to stop and the men clambered
back aboard. The race of the life saving
crew and the tugs for the wreck was thrill
ing. Hadley would not have made th
shore had It not been for the tuga, and
that probably means that so many -mora
live were saved. The 'life saving crew did
quick and reliable service, picking up tha
men. Hadley bad a bard run for
shore and did not win the race by any great
margin, for a moment after Its bow went
on the bottom Just south ot the canal pier
Its stern began to settle and finally went
down. A the stern settled to the bottom
the bow lifted a little and th water en
gulfed the vessel from amidships to stern.

the accident to the point of landing, bait
the boat wa covered with water, and th
members of the crew that were compelled
to stay with it, took the upper works.
Wilson is in eighty feet of water and only
a few feet of its spar can b seen. Wil

TUCSON. Aris., Jun 7. Advice from
Hermoaolll today say that the Yaqul trouble
is practically settled and that travel I
perfectly safe throughout Sonora. Governor
Torre Is in th field with a sufficient fore
to quell any rebellion that may arise. Th
report of the killing of the son of Rlcardo

cording to latest advice.
The first fight. In which the force under

that not over 100 Yaquls ar out and th
are in biding from the troops. All that re.
