Snake h i l l Is one of the most dan- wrous places In tho city for autolsts and it la a. m a t t e r of wonder that there lire not more a c l d e n l a there. his heir, was only one of many that have saddened his life. Assassinations and suicides have taken from him those who were nearest and most dear. A strange fatality has pursued the House of Hapsburg and misfortunes have come in quick succession. Only the emperor himself has seemed Immune. In the fiftieth year of his reign, on Sept. 10, 1898. when all of Austria-Hungary was preparing for a public jubilee, word was brought to the emperor that his wife, the Empress Elizabeth, had been killed by an assassin. NOTHING LEFT FOR RULER, Francis Joseph sank to the ground saying: ' "Shall I never be freed from pain and anguish in this world Is nothing, then, to be left to me?" ELDEST SON KILLED. Still another of the tragedies tuat Interspersed the years of the aged monarch was BO mysterious that the truth may never be known. Crown Prince Rudolph, his son, and Baroness Mary Vetsera were found dead In a hunting lodge near Vienna The baroness had been the guest of the prince. It was believed that she was shot by him, or shot herself. In the dead man's hand wag a revolver. Many even more pathetic tragedies have filled Francis Joseph's life with sorrow. His brother, Archduke John renounced his rank to marry the woman he loved, a chorus girl. He became known as John Orth. He studied navigation, purchased a vessel and with his wife sailed for South America. That was the last ever see of them. Their ship Is supposed to hav been wrecked in trying to round Cap Horn. Added to these, the chief tragedies in the emperor's life were many in whicl the lives of close relatives were ende violently. MAXIMILIAN'S FATE RECALLED. T "e tragic fate of another brother Maximilian, In Mexico, and the sub; quent mental derangement of Bmpre Carlotta were other tragic occurrenc that saddened and made his life mo lonely. Still another unfortunate even was the mesalliance of the Archduk Henry with a singer. In 1853 Joseph Libenyi, a would-b. assassin, wounded the emperor serious ly by a knife thrust between the should ders. But the monarch was young and the blow was not fatal. He turned to the mob that was on the point of lynching his assailant and shouted, "Do not hurt him; he has been badly mauled already. These everoccuring end recurring tragedies have bowed down the aged monarch. The weight of misfortune has made him the most pathetic figure the most lonely ruler, In Europe.
