One more solution of the mystery of Mey
erUag is advanced. It ii to the effect that
the Baroness Vetsera Tras shot by her uncle,
who -was infatuated with her and madly
jealous of the Crown Prince. The story has
it that haying killed the Baroness by mis
take, the Count, her uncle, made sure of his
next shot and brought down the Crown
Prince, but that a portion of his own hand
was blown off during the shooting afiair,
and he has just died, of blood poisoning.
IBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
IONDOH, May 1L Copyright Per
haps the most remarkable story of all con
cerning tne Vienna tragedy is that which
has just reached Paris. So many trae
stories have been published about the
mysterious death of Crown Prince Eudolf
and the Baroness Vetsera that it was
thought all conceivable plots had been ad
vanced. The latest story, however, and one
which is received with more credence than
any other, is far more tragic and violent in
its details than any of the preceding ones.
Curiously enough, the story gets to the
knowledge of the Parisian public through
two of the most famous women in Prance.
Madame Sarah Bernhardt received a letter
from a rather exalted personage in Vienna
whose relations with the Crown Prince were
intimate. This letter he showed to several
persons of prominence, and it has gradually
reached the ears of other people.
cojrriEMAxiON or the stobt.
At about the same time Madam Judic,
who was playing in the Austrian capital,
became possessed of a similar story from
two men of notable rank, who are more or
less in her train. This story she told in
full to Monsieur Maurice Gran, who has
since found it to be identical with the in
formation contained in the Bernhardt letter.
A few days ago it was announced qnietly
in the Austrian papers that the uncle of
the Baroness Vetsera had died at Meyer
ling. Until that time it was known that
the Count had disappeared, but nobody
knew where he was. After his death he
was buried without ceremony. The cause of
his death was variously given, but there
was nothing in the newspapers, and the
Count was buried before ever the papers
knew of his death.
The accepted slorv now is far more hor
rible than the climax of "Othello." It
would seem that the Count was
IS LOVE -WITH HIS OWS STIECE,
Baroness Marie Vetsera. She was, as is
now well-known, a woman of singular and
remarkable beauty, and the passion which
she inspired in her uncle was apparently of
the most violent nature. He was of Hun
garian descension and a man of strong will
power. The family objected to an alliance
between niece and uncle, but the latter in
sisted upon having his way. Meanwhile
he watcned the Baroness closely and was
the first man outside of the personal at

intimacy between the heir to the, Austrian
throne and his niece.
He said nothing, but watched the pair
narrowly, and when the Crown Prince left
the Ambassador's ball to drive out to
Schlossfeyerling, the Count followed in a
closed carriage. He did not attempt to en
ter the house where-the lovers were until
very Jate at night. When he got into the
Princess' bedroom and found the couple
together there was
A SHABP ALTEECAIIOK-.
The Count, in a fit of jealous fury, at
tempted to shoot the Crown Prince, but the
first bullet ' killed the Baroness. In the
straggle lor the weapon which followed, a
portion of the Count's hand was blown off,
and it was from the effects of this wound
that he subsequently died .through blood
The Crown Prinee was of slight build and
totally unarmed. The Count shot him just
as the attendants ran into the room. Every
effort was made, of course, to hush the
matter up, and the murderer was taken to
one of the rooms upstairs and put under
guard, pending instructions from the Em
peror. He went into a delirium in the
course of the night, and never left the room
The story is worth telling, because it is
the one which is now believed; but no man's
ingenuity can forecast the next history of
the mystery of Meyerling.

Chronic Diseases, Office at Hotel Albe
marle, Penn Avenue ana Sixth Street,
Thousands suffer for a long series of years
and linger out a useless life, who, with proper
treatment, might be restored to health and
contribute to the health and happiness of
others In many -cases the fault is not theirs,
for they try various doctors and 'quack nos
trums for relief; but skill is not readily found.
The general practitioner has but little time or
opportunity for the observation ot a large
class of chronic complaints. JHo man can be
come expert in every branch of the healing
art: hence snecialists are demanded for tha
bignest good ot humanity. Dr. Woods long
and patient study, his knowledge of Allopathic,
Hommpatbic and Botanic or Eclectic systems
of medicine; together with his discoveries and
new application of old remedies, have given
him unparalleled success in that class of dis
eases which have until lately baffled the skin
of eminent physicians, and secured for himself
an enviable reputation. Dr. Woods has given
the public evidence sufficient to convince the
most skeptical that his methods are singularly
successful, especially in such cases as have de
fled the skill of other and justly celebrated
It is always the truest economy for invalids
to secure the best medical aid, and not apply
to a physician with a feeling that they would
pay liberally if they were only cured. The way
to obtain health is to apply to a physician who
is skilled in the treatment of the diseases from
which they suffer, and secure his services and
a course of medicines. The best evidence that
can be furnished of his claims to confidence is
indisputable evidence of success. If he had
the ability to effect cures instantly it could not
be accomplished by meditation; it requires an
effort on the part of the patient, who should
have hope, confidence and a desire to be cured
it possible. This can only be dose by placing
one's self under treatment without hesitation
about a few dollars, as though health were
subordinate to all other things.
One of the fundamental principles which
guide Dr. Woods in his treatment of patients is
to doustice to all classes, so that mechanics
and laboring men receive the same treatment
at his hands as merchants and bankers. His
successful methods are therefore extended to
all alike, who apply to him for aid, and his
charges' are made so reasonable in all cases that
they come within the reach of all who seek the
benefit ot his services. No one who suffers
need hesitate for one moment before applying
to him and being placed on the road to re-.
Another inducement for calling on Dr.
"Woods is, he makes no extra charge for medi
cines. He compounds his own prescriptions
for his patients and furnishes all necessary in
struments and appliances. This arrangement
saves much trouble, avoids mistakes, is guar
antee that all the medicines are genuine as
well as effeots a saving of money to the afflicted
who are treated by him. When possible the
doctor prefers to see his patients; but when
this-Is Impossible his successful system of treat
ment by correspondence enables the afflicted
in all parts of the world to avail themselves ot
the benefit of his skill at a very small cost.
Bend four cents in stamps tor question list. All
communications sacredly confidential. No
charge for advice. Examinations are also free
