Mrs. Catharine Striugham, who is in the business of beautifying complexions by a process of treatment with '.electrical appliances,- massage, etc., etc. Nebro and M3ss Pofinger met in some distant town and, to use the expressive term, "the stuff was off." 'Twas a case of Jove at first sight on 'the gentleman's part, and he endeavored to impart some such reeling to the lady.', Here Is where the romantic part of the story comes in. Nebro claims that, when Miss Pofinger is out from under the Influence of Mi's. Stringham, she is a different woman and he has reason to believe that the spark of affection has kindled Into a 1 blaze and that Mils blaze bums cheerily on. the altar of his love. Whenever Mrs. Stringham is near, however, the scene changes and Miss Poflcger rejects his advances. In'other words, he claims that MI-S. Sbringham exercises hypnotic Influences oven- the object of his adoration, and prevents her from following her inclinations. 'Mrs. Stringb:]m said to a reporter for The Journal hist evening that Nebro's claim that she had hypnotized Miss Pofinger was nonsense, or words to that effect. She says that • Nebro has annoyed Miss Poflnger-with, unwelcome attentions for some time, aud has followed her about-from city to city. The latter, has been here about two months, coming us the agent of Sirs. Striugham. She established the agency for the conduct of the business here, ;and Sirs. Stringhnm came along a month later. She added 'that Ne-bro had, on June 8, met Miss' ; Pofiuger on Twelfth street •and had threatened her with violence of an unexplained nature, if she would not consent to marry hta> or receive his attentions.
