Skeleton His ' ;ce Companion.
M. Fcodor h ..nuikoff, a rich resi
dent of Tomsk, Russia, recently ap
peared in court on tho extraordinary
charge of stealing a skeleton from
Tomsk university. Residents on tho
outskirts wcro astonished to see M.
Kalmuikoff, mountod on a tricyclo,
with a complcto skeleton perched on
tho saddle behind him. On tho flesh
less skull hung a Parisian picturo
hat. Tho millionaire's face was grave
and he paid no attention to tho mob
of howling street boys who ran after
him. On tho police being appealed to
stop this indecent sight, they replied
that thero was nothing illegal in dis
playing affection for skeletons. Sev
eral women fainted, but tho freak
cyclist and his grisly companion rodo
on, and before they wero stopped had
completed soven circuits of the town.
Half a milo from tho finish tho atti
tude of tho polico changed, and con
stables pursued tho machine, shout
ing, "Stop, thief!" Tho cyclist, how
ever, spurted, and, skeleton and all,
ran over a stout policeman who tried
to bar his path. It transpired that M.
Kalmuikoff had mado a bet that ho
would ride round Tomsk sovon times
accompanied by a skeleton, and had
bribed a servant at tho university to
steal tho skeleton.

tho room wns plunged in darkness.
Suddenly a whirring sound was heard,
nnd to tho horror of tho skeptical com

tho table and brushed against tho

diners, loo torriflod oven to strike a
match, rushed panic-strickon down

Remembers Unexpiated Crime.
In tho Village cemetery of Angolica,
N. Y., stands a small shale stone dedi
cated to Ira Stovens, who was mur
dored Sept. 20, 1863. Recently a
bloody hand mark was discovered on
tho back of tho stone, apparently of
recent origin. Its appoaranco there is
a mystery. Stevens was murdered
with an elm club. His murderer was
ono John Rogers; a notorious card
sharper and "hnd man." Rogers was
taken to Batavla In tho December fol
lowing tho murder, but during a terri
ble snowstorm escaped. It is said that
ho later went to Australia, and there
became imensely wealthy.
Tho club with which the murder
was committed was placed in tho
grave, and on tho first anniversary a
small elm treo began to spring
through tho ground. This treo now
stands towering to tho height of nearly
seventy feet, and it is said that each
year on the anniversary of tho murder,
the back on tho treo turns blood red
as a perpetual reminder that tho pen
alty for tho deed was never paid.

geographical congress in New York,

St. Kilda, in tho outer Hebrides, and
about 200 miles from the Scottish
coast. It Is a rock about 250 feet in
circumference, rising to a sheer height
of seventy feet from the surfaco of
