tlicory wns first broached, nn occasional
oJTort wasmndeto test its accuracy as a
means of identifying murderers, and tho
most cxtrnoidinnry of tho cases forms
tho groundwork of tho present story.
In tho summer of 18. u young pliy
slclan named EdwinSlono commenced
practice iu a certain vlllnjjo not n, great
wnv fiom New York city, ilo invested
nil" tho money lie had In tho world in a
cheap littlo cottngo, which hu selected,
not for its buslnses advantages, but ho
rauso it was tho very plnlt ot perfection
in nil other respects. For tho fact was,
ho was engaged to be married as soon as
Ills circumstances would admit. Ills af
ilaneed wlfo was Ella Thorno, tlio (laugh
ter of tho lawyer; and, poor as Kdwln
Ktono was, he would not have exchanged
hor stiver volco for a golden dower.
To keep up nn annenranee and indis
pensable thing in this world tho Doctor
was obliged to keep some ono to answer
tho door and make himself generally
iibcful. In accordance with an iitvaiinblo
custom, tho Doctor got tho largest youth
lio could obtain for the money, and this
happened to bo a dogged fellow who had
mien a hang-dog look that ho enjoyed
tho enviable reputation of having "a
lovll In him." Of course, tho wages tlmt
Scth, as ho was called, received from tho
Doctor were not sulllciunt to keep body
mid soul together, and as ho wrote an
excellent bund, two birds wero killed
with ono stone by Lawyer Thome's
giving him occasional employment as a
Just at this time a wealthy man of
Hclcnco offered a largo sum of money for
tho best trentiso on tjio subject alluded to
nt tho commencement of this article,
liclng thoroughly conversant with oveiv
tlilng pertaining to tho subject, Kdwln
Stone applied himself to tho task liko an
Tho manuscript was finished and sent
away, and botli Kdwin and Klla awaited
tho result with beating honrts. for tho
prlzo offered wni sufficient to enablo
them to marry at once.
At length tho momentous period ar
rived, and tho result justified their sau
guino expectation; Edwin was declared
entitled to tho prize, and was duly noti
fied to appear and receive tho amount in
Tho two wero almost besido thcmsolvcs
with joy, and tho day was fixed at once.
Edwin lost no time in securing tho
money, but liko most young doctors, ho
had no bank account, so on returning
homo with tho amount lato at night ho
took tho precaution to fasten it iu n belt
about ins waist. Alter uismissing pem,
who was waiting his return, Edwin sat
down by his bedroom Arc, and was soon
lost in ono of those rovories where every
thing is couleur do roso.
Tho next morning Sotli was on his way
to tho cottage, as usual, when ho en
countered Lawyer Thome, who was just
starting out for his morning walk.
"I think wo aro going to havo a fino
day," said ho lo Scth.
" It mav bo," roplicd tho latter; "but
it -will bo n windy ono, if that red sky is
Tho lawyer had an cyo liko alynx.but
for tho life of him ho could not discover
tho sligtcst tingo of red in" tho heavens.
"By tho way," said lie, "as you havo
finished all but a pago or two of your last
job it will tako you but a moment or two
to do it now."
Beth was at first disinclined to comply,
but ho finally went iu and sat down with
pen in bund, waiting for tho ink, which
tho lawyer brought from his desk in tho
lioforo commencing Scth drew his
hand across his eyes us if to brush oil
something that blurred his sight, and hu
liad scarcely written tho first word before
ho started up and angrily exclaimed: "I
didn't ask you for red ink!"
The ink was ns black as tho nco of
snados, and this being Seth's second op
tical delusion that morning tho lawyer
advised him to defer tho copying for u
Sotli thereupon doparted for tho doc
tor's cottngo and shortly aftcrwaid camo
rushing back to announco that ho had
found Edwin Stono with a hatchet em
bedded in his scull.
In consequence of his suspicious con
duct at Lawyer Thome's, Scth was
promptly arrested and speedily brought
Directly nfter tho murder it transpired
that tho prize for tho treatise was offered
by a gentleman who know of tho pecu
liar situation in which Edwin Stono and
Ella Thorite wero plnccdi nnd in ortorlng

purposo of advancing tho interests of
Hcionco and of rendering pecuniary as
sistanco iu a dclicato way.
Being an enthusiast iu regard to tho
theory upon which poor Stono hnd
written, ho determined to reduco it into
pructico as a means of conviction, Ilo
tliereforo employed ono of tho most
skillful photographers in Now York City
to photograph the oyo of tho muidercd
man, and thus outaiucu a portrait oi tho
On tlio day of tiio trial tho photograph
bo tnkon was brought into court In n
scaled envelope, and 'after tho prelimi
nary proof jiad been submitted the pho
tograph was tuny cxiuoiiuu to tno jury.
It was tho photograph of Ella Tnornel
Every ono saw, from tho wild excito-
mont that ensued, that it would bo uso-
less to prosecute tho matter further, and
tho prisoner was straightway dischnrced
from custody; but, of courso, no ono was
ho dovold of reason ns to suspect Ella
Thorno of any complicity In thocilme.
Years passed, nnd tho inhabitants of
tlmt vlllugo began to loso faith in tho
roverb that "murder will out," whon
ill n, who had dovotcd horsolf to deeds
of charity sinco that awful period, was
summoned to the bedside of Scth, who
hnd been mortally wounded in a drunken
brawl. On hor nrrivnl tho drunken
wretch fumbled under tlio bedclothes for
a moment, nnd she recoiled with horror
ns lie produced hor own mlnlaturo that
tlio had glvon to Edwin Stone, and which
was now smeared with blood. Iluving

Tho StrniiKO Story of n Yoiiiie TVolnitn'a
lliifiutiiiiiite I.nvo Affair.
St. T.onU OtobfUanociat.
A fe,w gossips of Iho southern end of
St. Louis nro just now discussing tho
strange romance of a young woman who
has for something over n year been a
resident among thorn. Tho story was
told by a clergyman of tho Episcopal
Church, who lias boon n sufferer from
the lady's strange fate. Tho lady in
question is but a visitor to America,
whouco she camo to try and shako off
tho spell of which sho firmly beliovcs
she Is the victim.
A few years previous to her leaving
lilstoiio Caledonia she relumed from tho
patrimonial cbtiitcs of tho family, nino
and onu-half miles from tho Holyrood
Pnlnco, in Edinburgh, to Aberdeen. By
tho dentil of hor fnthor, sinco her arrival
In this country, sho has become the
heiress to n largo estate. She is refined,
graceful and handsome, but tho fatality
attaching to her makes her llfo an un
When but 17 yours old sho bceamo
strongly attached to u nephew of tho
Bishop of Carlylc. Ono day, while riding
across tho heath in ills company sho
had rt presentiment that ho would pro
noso that nicht and that sho ncccnted.
She saw him in a momentary vision lying
p.ilo and cold by the roadside. Bewild
ered, sho involuntarily stopped hor
horao, and in anothor moment full in a
Ilo boro her to n cottaeo near by, and
on her recovery tho bashful young man's
lovo had been bo intensified by anxiety
tlint. in a moment of mutual tenderness,
they wero betrothed. After escorting hor
homo ho had to pass tho samo spot to re
turn to his domicile Tho next morning
thoy found him dead near wliero sho had
fallen. Ills horso had evidently thrown
him, and lie had been killed by tho con
sequent injury to his head.
Tho lady recovered, and eighteen
mouths afterward sho was betrothed to
nn English naval officer who was sud
denly ordered to tho West Indies to join
II. 51. S. Schoolsliip Eurydico. Tho next
spring, on tho return of tho ship home,
slio was wrecked, nnd nil on board but
two wero lost. Tho young lover was
not ono of tho saved.
Timo healed tho lady's thrlco wounded
heart ahd her affections wero won by an
English army officer, who was drowned
shortly after tub bcti othal. Tho . night
lie was drowned sho was attending n
ball, and, nccoiding to her statement,
was seized with n sudden nttnek of dizzi
ness and fainted. On recovering, sho said
sho had seen, in a vision, tho ball-room
suddenly transformed into a sub-marine
cavern, containing nothing but tho corpse
oi Her accepted noutonunt. one coum
never bo induced to dance again.
It took a cood deal of persuasion to in-
,diico,her to becomo n linnce again. But
tho persistence of an Americon sea cap
tain conquered her reluctance and bIio
accepted him. Ilo returned to Philadel
phia with his ship for tho purposo of
putting his affairs in shapo for tho wed
ding. While his ship was nt nnolior off
tho Delnwaro Breakwator ho was also
drowned. Tho bride-elect camo to tho
Quaker City afterward, and, having rela
tives In Carondclct, resolved to mako a
lone visit to them.
Tlio clergyman who furnished tho facts
above rolated met and loved tho lady,
nnd sho apparently reciprocated, but
whon ho proposed sho replied by telling
him hor story, nnd nil his eloquonco
failed to chnngo her resolution never to
marry. His attentions to hor had been
n matter of society gossip, so that there
was something of a sensation when thero
appeared in the society columns of tho
Ulobe-Democml an item stating she had
gono to visit friends in tho intciior of tho
State, nnd would boon return to her homo
in Scotland to resido permanently.

Ilnvo you over been locked up in a
police station Probably not. But If
you havo you know how heavily the
timo linngs on your hands.
You count tho bricks in tho walls. You
try to sleep, nnd probably can't. You
think about your caso, about the charge
ugaiust you and your prospect of acquit
tnl, until you havo thought over its every
phase, mid no tnoio distraction can bo
got out of iU All tlio other prisoners nro
nslcep, nnd you heroine so unutterably
weary and linpatloiit.oE tho solltudo that
you would welcome almost any accident
that would dispel your weariness.
While In tills state ot mind, longing
for anything in tho way of distraction,
renily to listen to and talk with anyone,
if it is Sunday, you may hear n trio
of female voices, unaccompanied by any
Instrument, clear and loud in tlio death
like stillness of tho cell-room, singing tho
good old song that perhaps you heard
your mother slugs
Nearer my Ond to Theo,
Nearer to Thee;
K'on thnnith t be a cross,
That ralsclh me.
Through three stanzas tlio volcos rlso
and full and die away in n tender dlmln
uondn, and while you riro wondorlng wiio
tho singers nro and you wish that tho
slngots would continue mingles with
thoughts that reach out tlnough tho
barred window opposite your cell nnd
upwards, pass tho stnrs twinkling softly
through tho black night, n calm-faced
woman, whoso smile Is liko n benedic
tion, comes and stands in front of tho
narrow door to your cell.
Sho is very plainly dressed all in
black and she is probably nbout tho
ngo your mother was us you remember
"I am sorry to see you hcro,my friond,"
sho says in a quiet voice.
You wonder why sho calls you friend
and tho interest sho expresses in your
trottblo makes you interested In hor and
her mission. But you nro glnd to havo
some ono to talk to, aud so you probably
tell hor why vou aro locked up.
Wbiio you aro talking sho has un
wrapped a littlo bundlo of paper and
holds a smali printed slip liko a circular
in nor nanu as u sno inionucu to givo u

"Don't you sco how foolish nnd how
wrong you hnvo been in doing ns you
havo? Don't you know that thero is a
better way to ilvo than tills way' There
aro hundrods of thousands of-happy pco
plo nil about you who aro sitting at homo
to-night while you nro locked up hero.
And if you had tried to llvo tho right
kind of n life, tried to bo a good man, a
mnn that pcoplp would respect ana ins
friends lovo, you wouldn't bo hero to
night. Don't you wish you hnd lived
You toll hor that all sho says is true
enough but that it is very hard to bo the
kind of a man sho talks of.
"I know it is, but I want to show you
nn oasy way to change from tho way you
aio living now. Do you know whoro
tho Central Mission rooms aro?" You
"Thoy are on tho Avonuo, between
Ninth and Tenth, on tho south side. It
is a bin white building. Thero nro
meetings thero every night for pooplo
who wnnt to turn from their past lives
and bogln over again and you will find
lots of worso people than you 'aro who
hnvo began over again and are now living
as God wants everyono to. Would you
liko mo to prnv?"
You nro probably too busy thinking
thinking whnt you are, whnt you nre
nnd what you might be, where you aro
and where you might be, and without
your answering, tlio quiet figure in black
kneels down with her seieno forehead
leaning against tho bars of your cell door
and prays a few moments, a slmplo
Sraycr in which sho merely nsks hor
od to bo your God, nnd watch over you
in your efforts to lend a different llfo.
You moro than half acoulesco in hor
rovcront "amen," and then sho risos
nnd hands you tho tract sho has been
holding iu hor hand.
"You will go to tlio meetings nt the
Mission ns soon as you get out of your
trouble, won't you?" she asks as sho says
"good night;" and then with another
hymn the threo Central Mission work
ers pass quietly out of the cell room nnd
go to another station-house.
