o|i|iortiinity. She married m, and
when lie had taught her .11 c knew
she became very exacting, o i-lo-
vidc her with what she wanted lie
turned coiner, and bV-iitualiy icrl to
leave the country to escape the ■ Police.
v Mine. Pisani then went to r.ice,
where she met the Count delln Torre,
who at once fell a victini to her exquisite loveliness and charm ol manner. She ensnared him, attached b.in
to her devoted service and did wilh
him whatsoever she listed. So from
that time she became known to llie
world as the ."granite dame," tlio
Countess dcilc Torre. Vh.n cunt
died he left her thc whole ' his
immense fortune, and loeiety ,l,i_w
open wide its doors lo her.
Kate led her to place her talents
al the disposal ol the czar, and lo
the Russian court she became indispensable. If a document had to he
secured, she secured it. Murder sbo
coupled a legitimate factor in tlic
game. She would,lure on her victim
by soft glance and tender smile, wi.b
a small phial ol deadly poison hidden in her   lelt glove.
Tlic coup whicli first established
her in tlic complete confidence ol the
cr/ar happened early in her career.
The Russian secret police liad received intclliycii.o.ol a Plot which was
being'hatched conjointly in Rome ruiTl
. Paris. Reports conflicted in detail,
bht all concurred in pointing al a
trusted member ol the household high
in lhc confidence ef the, czar and with
constant access to his person. Thc I™? also-proved usdess
work of detecting tlic plot was given
to the countess, who went to Koine
and ingratiated herself wilh the Nihilists. She was successful and ion her
return got all audience with the cznr
who refused to believe what she told
him. Thc accused was one ol thc
most trusted ol his personal friends.
"Then," said tlie countess, " Iuhall
prove to your majesty that what 1
say is true. In hall an hour 1 must
crave permission to sec you again."
She at once hastened to thc ollicer
in quiutlon and delivered into his
care thc package ol papers, with the
injunction not to.nllow them ,to Jq-iil
his person. "Keep them with you,"
she said. "Ou your noble person
they arc sale. In my hiding place
tlicy may be lound." Returning she
lound the czar nervously expecting
her in his apartments, and at once
said: "I beg that your majesty will
at once summon this gentleman to
your presence, and that you observe
carefully the count's deportment ami
features when he sees me at your
side." When, a lew minutes later,
the ollicer entered and i*i»w she otm-
tcss he was struck with terror" Mid
amazement.
"It is as I Informed your majesty"
observed the countess calmly. "II
you will search him you will And
llie prool." Thc prorol was lound lu
one of his riding boots. The czar's
command was, "Exile to Siberia tor
lllc," but tho countess never knew
what really became ol him. She
always liclievi .1 that he was murdered in his cell that night.
From lhat day tho Countess  della
Torre was established in the oolip-
dence ol the autocrat ol all thc Hus-
sins, but olio ghost haunted her—her
husband.   She had been In constan.
tlie name of Mrs. Me-Oabe.' In what
portion of tbe state his daughter,
now grown to womanhood, is .living,
Mr. McDonald has no means'of know
ing, hut wilh plenty of time - and
money at his disposal he intends' to
learn.
Fifteen yeaiw ago Mr. arid Mrs.
McDonald lived in a large homestead
on tlic outskirts of Plainfleld, then
but a small city, Willi them resided their daughter Lillic, known as
onc of the prettiest children in the
city. . She attended a private, kindergarten school kopt.by two maiden ladies in South Plainileld,
whose names Mr. McDonald has now
forgotten. ....
From the accounts of neighbors,
Lillic had proceeded about five blocks
when two men,roughly dressed and
looking tike tramps', approached her
and apparently asked her several
questions, She _tood talking with
them innocently lor several ri.in_.-_,
and then again proceeded on ber
way. The men turned uncertainly,
looking after the little girl, and then
slowly, followed her.. .The neighbors
who saw the entire affair susjiccterl
nothing wrong and promptly forgot
that anything of the kind bad ever
transpired.
Lillic never reached the school.
It, wins evident) to the authorities
thai llie infant was kidnaped, and
probably, by thc two" rough-looking
fellows that accosted her while she
was going to school. The police put
all their energies at work trying to
find the whereabouts oi the   tramps-.
She was thc only child ol Mr. and
Mrs. McDonald. A. year alter her
disappearance, ivhen all hopes oilier
discovery werc- abandoned by every-

NEARING THE END.,
New York, Dec. 10.—Owing to .the
lurious pace which has been kept up
durin|,| the night the pussoti-M-iS-an,
Palmer-Agraz and Downing-Liir|bicrg
teams were compelled to abandon the
contest on the last day ol the six-
day race at Madison Square gardens
The last two 61 these teams has
dropped hopelessly In the rear last
night and during the. early morning,
lost lap alter lap, leaving the track
from time to time. It is not at
all unlikely that the Keegan-Logan
team will lie lorced to retire -during
the day. Keegan is said to hie in
a' bad state. The team team composed ol Turvillc-Mettling lost another lap during thc hour between 7
and 8 o'clock. This puts TurvjJJe
and Met 11 ing practically out of the
race as they are now live laps behind the leading team. At 8 a. m.
this morning, the Vanderstult- Stol
and Root-Dorton teams had covered
2,158 miles live laps; the Samuelson-
Will'iams team, 2,158 miles lour
laps. The Goulloltz-Bcrton, Keegan-
Logan and Krebs-Foglcr teams, 2,-
153 miles two laps, and the Tur-
ville-Meltling team 2,157 miles nine
lais. The record lor the 128th hour
