EUGENE O.UESXEL Chief City Circulation Agent, Lisbon, Portugal, Nov. fa mous dagger of the Dukes of Bra ganza, long coveted by wealthy Am erican collectors, has been returne to the state as mysteriously as it dii appeared from the royal palace o Necesaidades on the night of October 4, 1810, when King Manuel fled, from his castle to find refuge on British shores. Tho weapon, studded with precious stones and bearing chisclmauship at tributed to Senvenete Cellini, Is es liraated to be worth Many foreigners have sought to purchase it, romantic tales associated with the blade having added a historic worth to its intrinsic value. At the time of the revolution the republican leaders visited the desert- ed palace and took possession of all the jewels and works of art that the royal family had left behind. The dagger and some, other valuables fail- ed, however, to find their way into the hands of tho new authorities.

Recently the dagger was secretly placed In the letter box of the. official who is con, ducting the inventory. There is noth. Ing to indicate by whom it had been restored.
