Mme. Fleury paid her dally visits for a
month and subsequently was prevailed upon
to convey her daughter, who was suffering
from sn Incurable disease, to the place for
treatment by magnetic hypnotism.
As the two women failed to return home
the police entered the house of the mas
seuse. In a room which was draped In pur
ple velvet and ornamented with golden
stars and moons, with grotesque masks
grinning from ' every corner, they found
Mme. Fleury saying her prayers.
Near her, extended on a couch covered
with roses and other flowers, by the side
of which burned two Immense wax candles
In silver .candlesticks, lay the dead body,
almost emaciated to a skeleton, of her
The masseuse declared the girl waa not
dead, but was in a state of transition
while undergoing the process of renovation,
of which she herself had the secret.
Mme. Fleury, who showed symptoms of
having been hypnotised, repeated the mas
sense's story, and declared her firm deter
mination to remain watching until her
daughter's body should be completely re
stored. When the doctors were summoned they
declared that the girl had been dead for
more than twenty days, but that decompo

having been treated with a atrong chemical
Mme. Fleury was with difficulty per
suaded to believe that her daughter waa
dead. When at length ahe did realize It
she made a sudden violent movement and,
quickly taking a silk handkerchief from
her pocket, attempted to strangle herself.
She was prevented from doing so by the
doctors and conveyed home.
Both Mme. Chrlstmann and Mme. Fleury
were examined by a specialist In mental

that the former Is Insane. Mme. Fleury Is,

IRISH ARE RAISING FRUITS
Promise, to Supply Much of
British Trade In Short
LONDON, Sept. 17. (Special Cablegram
to The Bee.) Ireland la making a bold bid
for a leading position In the British fruit
markets. Orchard cultivation is being en
couraged by' the authorities and arrange
ments are being actively prosecuted for the
drying and packing of fruit. In American
fashion, for exportation.
"Only last week," said Mr. Garcia of
Covent Garden this week, "a government
official Interviewed me on the subject. The
effort la undoubtedly serious and should do
much for Ireland. The fruit grown In that
country la among the finest in the world.
I myself am going to give the fruit a trial.
"I do not think that London will be much
affected. The larger supply will be, sent to
the north of England."
A leading Jam manufacturer expressed
the view that Ireland's fruits would not bo
likely to Injure English growers so far as
the Jam-making industry Is concerned.
"Our firm," he aald, "uses none but the
fruit that la near at hand."
Blackberries are beginning to come into
the markets in small quantities and rather
high prices as much as 35 a ton are re
alised. These prices, however, are not
likely to be maintained when the season is
more advanced, as the crop Is expected to
be exceptionally heavy.
France U ahead of us In point of time
and dealers there are supplying large quan
tities to English manufacturer, and sales
men. Blackberries are also expected frpm Ire
land, and, as the trade for the food is gain
ing in popularity, the shippers stand an ex
cellent chance of finding purchasers.

Persecution by tho
BERLIN. Sept 17. (Special Cablegram
to The Bee ) The Cologne Gazette learns
from St. Petersburg that the Russian min
isters and heads of departments recently
assembled together under the presidency
of M. Wltte to discuss the revision of a
number of erroneous interpretations of the
laws affecting the Jews. The erroneous
verdicts of the courts of record had re
ceived the force of law by degrees of the
senate or of the council of the empire.
Th finding of the ministerial conference
was drawn up by M. Wltte and has been
submitted to the csar. who Is understood
to have assented to 'the resolution.
The reconstituted statutes, which will be
promulgated during the course of the next
few weeks, deal chiefly with those Jews
who were already In a so-called "privi
leged" position. Thus the wives-and chil
dren of Jews who have received a uni
versity education or who are members of
the first-class merchant or craft guilds,
receive express permission to continue In
their respectlv. places of residence or dom
icile during the absence of the head of the
family. These same "privileged" Jews are
also to be permitted to live In villages and
are accorded the specific right there to rent
a dwelling house, shop or workshop. The
present laws only provides that "Israelite,
have the right to live In villages," but no
mention Is made of the right to rent dwell
ing places or workshops.
Furthermore the Jews are to receive cer
tain mitigations of the legal difficulties
which obtain against the keeping of Jewish
servants by Jews. The duration and valid
ity of the traveling permits and passes for
first and second class Jews are also to be
extended. Hitherto these persons have
been prohibited from visiting more than
twice any place In which they held no
right of dwelling. Now, however, the
"pale" will be extended, and they will be
allowed to travel outside the zone. But no
Jew Is to spend more than 180 days in one
year outside the authorized zone.
The correspondent of the Rhenish organ
adds that In well-Informed quarters In St.
Petersburg the new ordinances are com
mented upon In a sceptical spirit upon the
grour.d that nu,oober of Inaccuracies have
been allowed to creep In which will afford
an opportunity for capricious and discre
tionary Interpretations of the revised stat
utes at the hands of the provincial authori
se Whatever Justification there may be
for the foundation of these fears. It is
certain that the large mass of the Jewish
working classes, who are most of all sub
ject to oppression and to persecution, have
received no alleviation of their lot

the Korea Is one of these two vessels
known to be near the coast, or whether it
Is a third vagrant orulaer, is not settled.
It is generally believed In naval circles
that the cruiser, referred to are converted
auxiliaries; like the Lend, but there is a
possibility that they are regular men-of-war,
which, .like the Lena, were forced to
escape to the eastward.

ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 17.-6 p. m.
The representations between the United
States and Russia relative to the disposi

that the crew be Interned at Mare island
until the end of the war haa been trans

Washington and is being considered by the
admiralty, where it is desired that the crew
be allowed to return home under an agree

reports that the Lena had been engaged in

Pass' and Port
Official news from the seat of wsr In the
far east is still lacking, but the Wat office

latter has had time since the evacuation of
Llao Yang to strengthen his forces ma

the Japanese will be directed against Tie
Public interest is again apparently being
contered. on Port Arthur, and the reports
that the Japanese are tunnelling the for
tification, there are received In the Rus
sian capital with some credulity.

MUKDEN, Sept. 17. Via Peking, Sept. IS,
1:55 a. m. (New York Herald Cablegram
Special Telegram to The Bee.) A Cossack
officer entered General Mlstchenko'a out
posts yesterday after being a fortnight la
the rear of the Japanese army. He WO0
sent on a reconnoiterlng mission before tb
battle of Liao Yang, and being cut off, had
to march by night and hide by day. H
say. the Japanese army is south of Pakeat
and that Japaneke activity north of Liao
Yang is mere'ly a demonstration. All the
Japanese forces and transport, hav gon
