On April 2,189-1, the police of
Buenos Ayres found n sack on tho
outskirts of tho town. It contained
tho hoxdloss, armless und logloss
body of a rami. The trunk was
covered with sawdust, fait, piooos
of linen and material thatevident
ly hud boon taken out of a mat
tress. In the evening of tho samo
day another sack was found con
taining tho arms and legs of tho
victim. They wero covered with
the same materials and with pieces
of torn nowBpnpora. Threo weeks
afterward childron playing in the
woods found u queer-looking pack
ago. They cut it partly open und
saw a human oye that seemed to
be peeping out of tho bundle
They ran away and informed the
police, who found in tho bundlo
a nan's head.
Medical oxnorts established hn-
yond doubt that the head belong-
ea to too trunk tound threo weeks
before. A mask was takon of tho
face. It was photugiuphcd and a
picturo of it printed. Copios of
this picture wore posted all over
tho town and the newspapers re
produced it. Tho body, put to
gether as skillfully as possible,
was placed in tho JMormin. whom
near) the entire population of tho
city saw it. livontually tho body
was identified as thut of a French
man named Forbes, who recently
had arrived for tho second time in
tho city. Then ciimo tho hunt for
tho murdpror, and in this hunt tho
Argentine authorities distinguish
ed themselves. A general sonrch
was mado in all tho houses of
Buenos Ayres. This task was divid
ed among Crty Police Commis
sioners. Evntually a clow was obtainod.
It showed that Farbos previously
had visited Buonos Avion in 00m.
pan- with Tieniblio on a strange
mission. Fronoh gold was at a pre
mium, most notably when ox
cbangd for two cent Ai-pentinn
pieces. For 600 in gold at least
$1000 in pontiles could bo had.
Those pennies could bo smuggled
into Ftunco and there be set gra
dually in circulation. Farbos who
had money, was delighted with
tho prosptotof such aspeoulutiou,
and at Tremblie's instance ho tried
it. .When, tho first lot of two-cent
EiecoB bad been worked ofl'Trom
lio, who had little or no capital,
returned to Buonos Ayros, advis
ing Farbos to follow him, to bring
with him all his available funds
in gold and troblo his fortune.
On March 29, 1891, Farbos, not
ing on his partner's advico, sailed!
on mo steamer uronoquo for Buo
nos Ayres. Ho landed on April
20th. Tremblie met him on tho pier.
During their previous stay in
Buenos Ayres Furbos and Trom
blio had put np in the house of
a Frenchman named Oourtado.
Tremblie now changed tho quart
ers and in tho Oullo Oangallo, un
der the false name of l'edro Taba
ccs, he hired a room that was iso
lated from tho rost of tho houso.
Ho hnd cuicoaUd from Oourtado
the arrival of Furbos. but wbiln
tho voss-l was in quarantine Fur
bo. had found a way to send
Tromblio a lottr. Jlma. Oourtado
.brought Tninblio the letter, re
marking timt the iiddross looked
liko tho Imi dwriting of Farbos.
, "So it is," said Tromblio. '-Tho
lottor is from France.''
"But how comes it that it boars
the Argontino stamp?" nsked tho
"Ho probably g.vo it to some
passenger on ooard the Urenoquo,
who posted it'here," replied Trom
blio. On the samo day he moved to
the Callo Oangallo, telling Oour-
