HAD FAMOUS POISON
OREAD SECRET POSSESSED BY
LAST OF THE BORGIAS.
Simple Mixture Carrying Certain
Death and Impossible of Detection
Came Down to Him from the Middle
Ages—How It Might Be Well Used.
Blaze de Bury, after reviewing the
'"Talms of the wife of . certain Italo-
American to the title of the "last
countess of Borgia," tells a most in-
teresting story about the last male
deuccndapt of the famous poisoning
family, says the Louisville Courier-
"He was named Duke Hiario-Sforza,
and a well-ltnown figure iu. the Parlb
grand opera. As our subscription seats
adjoined, I met him there two or thret-
nights a week, and gradually the duke
began to honor me with his friendship.
One evening he said:
"'If it wasn't for music, my only
i>assion, I would have dispensed with
life long ago. Burdened as I am with
i he knowledge of my family's secrets,
I know little comfort.'
"Then ho told me that lie was in
possession of the formula for making
'Cutarella,' the poison by which the
Borgias rid themselves of their ene
rales and of persons whose fortunes or
wives they coveted. 'The secret has
descended from father to son through
ten centuries and more. If I had a
legitimate son I would have to impart
It to him before I die, Bays the family
tradition. To avoid that dreadful re-
sponsibility 1 never married.' The
poison, he explained, was 'rather u
simple mixture,' and it was hard tt
believe that no chemist ever found or
rediscovered the formula. 'The poison,
he said, 'carries with It inevitable
death, but no court of law and no ex
pert physician Is able to detect any
symptoms of vlolenco in the victim's
body. Hence the Cutarella is tlit
prince of poisons, just the poison fot
statesmen and kings to handle.
" 'My formula provides either foi
sudden or for lingering deatii, accord
ing to the poisoner's wishes. I coulii
make you drop dead iu an instant by
a handshake, or by a drop of liquid
poured in your water or coffee, and J
might sentence you to perish by
inches, to burn up alive, etc.'"
Blaze de Bury calls the duke a "the
oretical philosopher of murder." He
once said: "The truly great and Just
man, a man without egotism and with
ouj axes to grind, might become a
great aid to justice by the possession
of the Cutarella secret. The Borgias
used the poison as a vehicle for theii
Mnbition and greed—it might be used
to rid the world of a lot of secret
criminals and vampires, laughing at
the law. Justice, as we understand if,
does not punish one-third of the crimes
committed. Numerous perpetrators
escape by technicalities, by bribery,
by accident. Now, suppose that the
possessor of the Cutarella secret hunts
down such men and women and rid
the world of them. Suppose he makes
himself the Instrument of vengeance
for wronged women, for men driven to
despair, for children robbed and be
frayed by their guardians. Suppose
he would take it upon himself to kill
faithless kings and ministers that op
press ^he people. Suppose the Cu-
tarella proprietor would go to Russia
and do the work of the revolutionists
there. What a grand prospect!"
"Has your grace ever conceived thai
mission?" asked the author.
"When I was young I sometimes
i onsldered its advisability," replied
'lie duke. "But I was never a hero
never a great, moralist. Besides, )
felt 'hat I had no particular knowledge
uf character. I might have exeeut.ee
innro Innocent people tbaD guilty ones
\nd so 1 concluded to let the secret o!
the \engeance poison sleep. Since !
■•.am* Into possession of the formula
't w as never put in Operation. And if
never shall. I won't use it even or
myself. If horror of life ever seizei
me I shall die by a pistol 6hot."
Soon after that the last male Borgi;
actually killed himselfjritb a revolver
