Epiaodee Which a Traveler Haw in tbe Voruba Country.; Jean Hess, a French-African French-African French-African traveler, gives Le Figaro of recent date an unaccustomed of tbe savage neress. He pictures her having a beauty ot her own befitting tbe climate and vegetation of tropical Africa. Tbat, however. nay be a matter of taste, and, perhaps, most writers would find it hard to discover, with M. Hess, in the naked negress "living bronze, of nnimpeachable lines," a creature whose pride and dignity suggest "what ancient poets tell of Athenian priestesses and Roman Empresses." Matter of fact and not of tastej however. Is be found in the account M. Hess gives of and marriage among some of tbe savage African tribes, in the country of the Yoruba, extending from the Gulf of Benin to the Niger, M. Hess saw a young negro who, after having sacrificed a pigeon upon the edge of a stream, threw its plumage upon the water chanted a prayer to Iniova, protector of lovers. Imi.ya is a w hite genius that lives at bottom of the stream. He has power to inspire virgins with love of the young men implore his aid. Prayer is made to Imoya secret place, with the sacrifice of honey cakes and white doves. Here is a love chant is sung to Inmya: "There is in tne bouse of the chief a beautiful virgin, here by name, the loveliest of all. has large hips as those of a heifer: sue arms as strong as a warrior's; she has eyes sweet as the anteloie's ; her voice is a chant gnver than those of the birds: her dancing is light and a pleasure to see: she is supple and iindul.Mis as the sacred serpent :-ehe :-ehe :-ehe is lovelier than may be told. 1 would like her well a wife. She would honor me in my house she would give me beautiful children. she is proud and mocking. She will laugU at me when I would buy her. and I shall not be able to conduct her to my house. Imoya, give her to me!" The giris also have their chants, fetiches and ceremonies to obtain husbands. In a village Yoruba. M. Hess saw a group of young negresses performing these rites about a great baobab tree. They carried Jars of oil. and sane, moving slowly, with naked bosoms, with measured cadence and harmonious balancing. balancing. As they danced they affixed white bits of cloth to the tree. The observer saw nothing grotesque or laughable in the scene. M. Hess says that the ravage negress has her coquetries, and asserts that she submits to painful tattooing that she may seem more beautiful to men. The marriaaeof a rich man the Egbas to tbe daughter of a chief waa a notable ceremony. The maiden's consent having been obtained, the future husband fiaid her fa'her the agreetl price. As the new-v new-v married couple journeyed homeward people along the way laid down branches and Bowers, saying: "The genii give thee a beantiful spouse, forget not that she is more precious than all thy riches. The virgin whom thou take-t take-t take-t was the charm of the house, the charm of theclty. Thou desired her. When thou hast given us i thv treasures thou shalt not have paid enough."

HEIR To an Immense Estate.! Baron Stoecklin, Who , Once Worked in This City. His Hasty Departure To Elude Mysterious Mysterious Marie St. Remy A Peculiar Peculiar Case. Several months ago Thb Exqcibeb printed an item to the effect that tlie-e tlie-e tlie-e was employed at a rase in a Longwortk street printing office a titled German, who was none other than Baron Camilie Sloecblin, of Uenbiville. Alsace. Alsace. Germany. The man by whom this titled foreigner was employed in an humble capacity is George Koch, whose place of business is at No. mi Longworth. The Baron' bad come to Mr. Koch as plain Herman Stoecklin, stating that he was a native of Berlin, and was desir ous of securing employment. The man's ap pearance and gentlemanly bearing Impressed Mr. Koch favorably, and he at once put him to work. As days passed Mr. Koch became more and more interested in the quiet, plodding plodding printer, and in the courje of time invited him out to his home. Stoecklin was rarely heard to mention his native land, and acted In such a way as to Indicate to Mr. Koch that there was something in bis life which be was trying to conceal. Stoecklin was very industrious, industrious, and was well liked by all with whom he came In contact, lie remained with Mr. Koch for some time, when circumstances made it necessary for him to leave the city. While Stoecklin. whose every action and word showed him to be above the position he occu pied, was In Mr. Koch's employ, the latter aided him in many ways. Stoecklin HAD A M'MBER 0V TRCMKS When he came to this country, but on arriving arriving at New York was. unable to pay the cus toms duties upon them. In his efforts to se cure bis baggage and a reduction of the duty thereon Stoecklin was greatly aided by Mr, Koch, who all this time was unaware of his employe's royal lineage, and tbe latter left him liefore the facts came to the surface. In the issue ot The Esqi irfk of July 8 last there appeared the following special dispatch from New York: "Baron Caroilie Stoechlin. of uenbiville. Alsace, Germany, who left his wealthy parents and native land in 1816 and came to this country with a young wife, to whom his parents objected, is heir to a large estate, the parents having both died. His present home is unknown. At last accounts he was a dishwasher in a Cincinnati restaurant. restaurant. A former servant of the family has advertised advertised for information of the Baron." No one read the disDatch at the time of its appearance-with appearance-with appearance-with more interest than did Mr. Koch, who at once concluded that his former employe and the Baron were 0E AHD THB RAMB PERSON, Although tbe given names were not the same. He. t herefore. decided to make an investiga tion. More ont of curinslty than anything else, he wrote to Henry Koch, a relative.

The man who the servant advertised for that is. Camilie Pioeck lin was about vears of age. ii feet b inches in height, smoothfaced, smoothfaced, with blue eyes and light brown hair. His hair dung in a thick cluster of curls about his head. This is the description the farm hand gave me. I will not vouch for its correctness. Very truly yours. "Hesbt Koch." hebma5 stofckl1s!. According to Mr. Koch's reisnlleetion, was iroliably JO yeurs ot age, smooth-faceJ smooth-faceJ smooth-faceJ and a ittiealiove medlnm heiuht. He is not certain as to the color of his hair and eyes. Early one morning while t-toeoklln t-toeoklln t-toeoklln was working for Mr. Koch a woman called at the latter ntnee, then in Lincoln inn court, and asked lo s. Herman Stoecklin. She w as in formed that he had not vet put in an appear ance at the fifTlie. but wi expec ed at any moment. Shead she won d wait for hi m. as she had some very important news to com municate to ntm. . . Something in her manner aroused Korh suspicion that all was not right, and he determined determined to see Stoechlin before the woman had an opportunity to speak to him. He therefore made an excuse that he had important important bu-iness bu-iness bu-iness to attend to, and. leaving the office, went to the egntranee of the building building and waited for Stoecklin to make his appearance. appearance. When his employe arrived he took him to one side and gave him a minute description of tbe woman. lie said that she was very dark-complexioned, dark-complexioned, dark-complexioned, bad an unprepossessing countenance, and he had noticed a scar extending extending from the right corner of her mouth up along the cheeklone to a point midway betweea theeye and ear. Stoecklin lost control control of hiin-elfat hiin-elfat hiin-elfat this part of the description, and stamped about the room in a furious rage. hen he had tveorue sutnciently composed to be questioned Koch soon ascertained that his visitor was a French woman, and that her name was Mane St. Bemy. She was a concert hall singer. soMoecKiin told mm. and while she was filling an engagement in Berlin he had the misfortune to become acquainted w ith her. She professed to be very much infatuated infatuated with him. which condition of affairs not being exactly what he desired caused him o leave the Fatherland for America. She. however, w as not to be so easily cat off, for after he had spent several years of tranauillitv in New York she suddenly made her appearance appearance at the house where he w as staying, and once more ne ieit tnat ue w as isr hbb row Eg. Her lor at seeing him. which was either real or feigned, only disgusted him, and he made up bis mind to wake another attempt to escape from her. He quietly boarded a train for Cincinnati, hoping that he had seen her for the last time. At the conclusion of his recital Stoechlin advi-ed advi-ed advi-ed Koch to see the woman and tell her that he would not be at the office that morning. morning. He. in the meantime, would make pre-narations pre-narations pre-narations to leave for St. Louis that eveninv. as he was determined to have nothing further to do with MarieSt. Kemy. Koch returned to theofuce ami made tbe necessary explanation accounting for Stoecklin' absence. The woman turned on him with her face fall of suspicion and said she was sorry to see that he was taking the part of the husband against a much injured wiie. t-ue t-ue t-ue men len me oui ding. Stoecklin entered tbe office after she had departed and began to get together the little personal property he had lying about the room. While he waa thus occupied.

One of them was to drive up in trout of tbe building, white tne otner was to go rouna on oixtn street ana wait there till called.

The Mono ai arrived lat Saturday from Honolulu, and is now at the Oceanic Dock. Captain Carey and Purser benda.l gave the new s tint yesterday regarding Becky and hex bold plan to steal a march on the ticeauic Steamship Company. They said that she was more than successful. Then they gave an account of tbe young lady's trip to her native land.

The small stock of coin that", the workman had saved u p soon diminished. He tried to secure employment in various capacities, but failed. He was ohlln d to borrow money from his friends to enable himself and wife to ge back to Australia, he having decided to leave his child Becky with a married couple w ho resided in the mission until he could secure Hinds enough on returning to Melbourne tu send her a ticket for home.

She was h 11 rried before Captain Carey, to whom she told the story of how she came on board. "I had Just five cents left out of my she said, hanging ber head bashfully.
