The Empress of Austria's murder
has created a great sensation hero.
She witt well known in England! and
Ireland, where she made many friends
especially among sportsmeu and
sportswomen. During the hunting
season, when she was over here, she
used to stay at .Hie poorest country
inns. She rather preferred humble
quarters and disliked fuss. On one
occasion, when she had bespoken
rooms nt a rather smart seaside hotel,
the manager thought to "do tlie thing
liandsomely," so decorated the suite
of apartments with exquisite roses.
When the lady-in-waiting arrived to
prepaire for the Empress about an
hour in advance she was stricken
with horror and exclaimed: "For
heaven's Kike, take away all these
llowers! Her majesty cannot endure
flowers, especially roses!" So all
hands had to set to work and get the
unlucky decorations out of the way
before the royal visitor appeared. I
had this story from a young lady who
was staying in tlve hotel.
Another characteristic anecdote
which the press has not got hold of is
the following, -Which was told by one
who was present. It dates back to
the palmy days of the beautiful Em
press, when she was yet fidl of the
"joie de vivre." A circus visited Vi
enna, and gave a special "command
performance" before the Empress and
court. After it was over, Elizabeth
sent for the ringmaster and question
ed him about a certain wonderful
equestrienne, who was placarded as
"the finest 'horsewoman in the wortd,
and whose feats had sent the noble
audience in ecstacies of applause. "Is
she really the best living rider?"
asked the Empress. "Absolutely,
your Majesty." "Then listen to me,"
said the fair autocrat, "and mind you
keep my secret. You are to have this
place ready tomorrow morning, and
keep all the doors shut. I will come
down with one or two ladies only
not Viennese, you may he sure! and
if you will lend me Mile. X's horses,
I will do all that she has done, and
more." She w:as obeyed, of course,
and she" duly arrived, wrapped in a
long ulstre, which, being removed,
showed a black costume consisting of
ballet skirts and tights. Of her two
companions, one was a Frenchwoman,
who relates that the exhibition which
followed was marvelous. The Em-

programme, but added several daring
feats of her own. invention, and
seemed to thoroughly enjoy the
amazement of her observers, includ
ing tlie ringmaster. Wlicii she bad
finished, she asked him: "You must
own now that your young lady ;'h not
the finest ruler in the world. You
must not put that statement in. the
bills anymore." "But, madnme
though wliat you say is true may I
remind you that this girl works for
her daily bread " pleaded tho man.
"The statement to which you object
is part of her stock in trade. May
we not continue -to print it?" "No,"
said Elizabeth firmly, "because it
would not be true. But you may say
she is the finest circus rider in the
world. You see I am not a eSrcus
ridlor unfortunately!" She added
this wHJi a deep sigh, and the look
of triumph faded from her face.
Poor woman! She met disillusion
very early. It is an open secret that
her husband's weakness where wo
men were concerned embittered her
marriage from tlie first. It seems
harsh to recall this now, sliuce the
monarch 'has long since Sown his wJCd
oats and has suffered so cruelly; nev
ertheless truth must be toih Her
own purity was Arctic. Those who
knew her best said that no man was
ever able to obtain the shadow of in
fluence over her. There were several
passionate scenes with young nobles
about the court; but she crushed
them under her feet like so many but
terflies. One man she Caused to be
sent 'to a post abroad. Her strict
views caused her to feel intense an
guish ait tlie escapades of her un
happy son, Rudolph. She well knew
that he was not fit to be married; and
during the ceremony she broke down,
sobbing a most unusual weakness.
By the way, his child, the little Arch
duchess Elizabeth, who is now fifteen
years old, has always been devoted to
her. At the time of the Empress's
murder she was staying alone at the
Castle of Luxemburg; and the Em
peror, knowing how acutely she
would feel the blow, gave orders th.it
