UNVEILING A MYSTERY.
BRIDGEPORT. CONN.. Sept. 21.?A
new development in the Yellow Mill
Pond mystery was made known today
with the announcement of the arrest in

Gill, of Southington. The il.y ..f the
police is based in some measure upon
an alleged striking resemblance be?
tween the face of the cori.se and that
of Emma Gill's brother. Young Foster

once had a very extraodinary exper

which he now preserves as a memento.
During the campaign of 18SS Maj.
Kitchener was hit in the side of the
face by a bullet during a skirmish near
Suakim. and was taken down the Nile,
and thence to the Citadel hospital, at
Cairo, where despite all the efforts of
the surgeons, the bullet could not be
located. The wound was a healthy one.
and soon healed, and the medical of?
ficers came to the conclusion that the
bullet had worked its way mil. without
being noticed, on the passage down the
Nile. The major's nurse one day
tempted the patient's appetite with a
tasty beafsteak. which the major hail
no sooner attacked than he put his
hand to his throat, exclaiming: "Hil?

I've swallowed that bullet. I felt it
go down." This proved to be the case.
