JFrora Appleton's Journal, -A
Singular Case in Belgium.
,'i'he Hisuflieicncj of certain kinds ot
evidence to form a bsia for convictiou
in rase of alleged murder has been
lately established in the celebrated
Wharton and Sclioeppe cases in this
country. Tlio conflict tog testimouy
of a number of the chemists and medi
cal men in these cases went far to es
tablish the innocence of both ; whereas,
6fty years ago, the testimony of one o!
them would have established the guilt
Since the testimony of po call d
medical experts lias so frequently
brought the innocent within the shad
ow of the pall 'ws, the fact of its unre
liability has gradually forced itnelf up
on the public imud, and steadily and
surely has the convk'iioo extended
that this rlirss of testimony, once so
decisive and final in courts of justice
in this country, at present riinks but
little in advance of circumstantial evi
dence. . .
.,. A case sim'.lir.to the Wharton and
Sehoeppe cases, b'it .jmore singular in
its character and termination, has late
ly, been, trie I at Bruges, Belgium, the
scat of the Royal Medical College.
It was intended a a test-case of the
value of medical testimony in establish
ing the trnilt of acr-ued persons iu cases
of this kind. Its strange result, and
the high character of the me.lical men
engaged io t he chemical ana'ysi. font
one of (he mot-t conclusive ur.umcnts
against placing too strong a reliance
upnn the testimony of experts or sci.
cntists, however eminent.
In August, lust year. Aenel, a man
servant, was arrested in Bru-i-s and
placed nu (rial, cbrrged with the mur
der of hi master, M. Riaud. Ti e
victim of the alleged murder had been
a re'ired p'lysician, a graduate of the
Royal College, and a geuileman of
wealth His sudden and mysterious
death at once enlisted the interest of a
large number of people, and anior.g
them some of the most eminent physi
cians of the kingdom. . TJie poxf-ynor-tem
examination and analysis were con
ducted tinder l!e inimediate care of
the?e Inter gentlemen, including M.
Girault, of the Imperial Laboratory,
Paris, and 31. Conde. a celebrated an
alytical chemist, of the city of Brussels.
The case o.?cisioned a deeper interest,
occurring, os it did. at the time of the
meeting of the Royal Medical Socitty
in the ancient city of Bruges, ft which
socie.y M. Hiiiaud was an honorary
trember. During its deliberations the
vul ject cf chemical rotsrins, qnd the
methods of detecting their presence,1
formed a principal theme cf discussion
In these discussions the Wharton cae
n this country wa reviewed, and the
tests then employed and the results ar
rived at wpre severely criticised The
dicuss'on of the subject. vo develop
ed a wide snd irreconcilable difference
of opinion among, men hers of, the so-
etnv. The death of M. Rigaud. from
ged poisoning, oeciring at this
time, alforcd .. an opportunity. . 1 he
ability ai d learning of the col'ege
were at once brought to bear in cstab-
Lshinjr or demolishing the various the
ories that had been advanced during
its ittiugs. , ;
The resnlt of an ehib.ira'e teientific
analysis was held to establish tha pres
ence of a sufficient quantity of arsenrc
In the sys'em of the deceased physi
c an to have . produce! death; which,
takvn in connection with the evidence
crllcted by the Bruges and Bruss-ls
poliee. led to the arrest of A'znel, the
servant, on a charge of murder.
The criminating cireutnst .nces, apart
from the testimony of the medical ex
perls, which ld to the suspicion aud
arrest of the fervent, were very .com
plete and conclusive in their character;
and, in a Belgian criminal court,
which, 1 ke those of the Frencii, seem
intended only Tor qonvictt r it is prob
able that. Agnel. under ordinary cir
cumstances, would have speedily found
his neck ueder the kt ifeof the guilo
tine. He was a man of violent temper,
and had been discharged from the scr
viie of'M. Rigaud far exhibitions of
ungovernable anger,. the. .last occasion
of, his discharge being an intemperate
quarrel wih his master some days be
fore the aU;jed murder. Three days
before the death of M. Rigaud, Agnel
had been reinstated, the physician ap
pearing to possess a deep regard for
his servant. This affection was aleo
shown by an inspection of the will ol
the deceu8td gentleman, i.i which he
bequeathed to his servant, the sum of
four thousard francs, anil recommended
him to the service of his (lligi ud's)
brother, in Bordeaux, Francs. At the
tiae of his d-'.ath Rigaud and his ser
vnnt were living in apartments in t!:e
Rue Varrie. with a lady by the uame
of Frank. The testimony of this wo
man and of Dr. M. Sard u, of the fac
ulty of the Royal College, formed the
strange denouement of the trial which
ensued, and saved thd innocent Agnel
from afVlon8 death.
After the death of the physician,
aud the result ol the enemies 1 analysis
was made known to the authorities, the
wheieabouts of Agnel during. the two
days of bis discharge were thoroughlv
huuied and traced by tho detectives.
Every angry word that had escap i
him was uoted, and an array of crimi
nating evidence collected. against bjm
that m et have been fatal. It was
shown that, on tho evening of his dis
charge, he bad. procured a spta.ll phial
r t aisenii from, the dispensatory .of the
ci liege, for the u.seas h had .stated,
of bis master. This , was . after the
and .his depart u.e from the
residence of 3Irs. rrank, in ,the Rue
Varrie. It was also discovered by the
detectives that Agnel had becoiu in
volved in money matters in a maimer
that threatened his arrest and disgrace;
o that the bequest ia Rigaud's will,
of which the accused was aware, became
especially desirable to relieve hun
from his embarrassment. Agnel stren
uously denied his guile, os well as nil
knowledge at the matter, aud evinced
the decpe-it grief at his master's dcuh.
.The trial was conducted before the
judges iu the city of Bruges, aud last-,
ed four day. i"je testimony, of the
chemical experts who had. couducted
the analysis, was of a highly, interest
ing characer, f brlui g the basis of the
prosecution. A number cf dis.-cutiug
opinions regarding the chemical tests
for poison ap eared iu a newspaper
during the progress of the trial, which
were replied to by M. Uirauit and M.
Coude. tjBstaiuing the. methods of the
test and defending their efficacy. Ou
his examination before the ju ices, M.
Gir-uh testified positively to the pres
ence of arsenic in the system of th
deceased, aud entered iuto a highly
scieniifie explanation of the maujer oi
its detection, too abstruse for compre
hension except by professionul-i. M.
Cond-'s evidence, however, formed the
most novel aud. interesting, feature of
the trial, bqing an explanation of a new
process of detecting areuical poisons
by the est of affinity. His testimony,
which was very el ib -rat-. and interest
ing, called forth the comments of wed
ical men in all parts of the kingdom
and of France. M. Coterie, au cmi
neut chemist of Brussels, as tlie repre
sentative of a large body of medical
mpn, was oaLed to the stand. , fl ics
tificd th.u the process employed by M.
Girault was, iu h g opiuion, whody in
adequate to est ahlisb the preseuoe of
poison, and that the process of M. Con
de would, ia its opctation, generatcar-.
senic. His evideuce. which was vulurn
iunu, was careful y prepared, and elic
ited the pro'oundest intere&t of the
medic 1 profession of B.lium.
By a preconcerted arrangement be
tween Dr. M Sardou and the coausel
pf t lu prefecture, the testimony of the
former acd of the landlady, Mrs.
Frank, was re.-erved "joil after the ev
ideoce of the police and the lung array
of medical testimony had been taken.
At that time the opinion of the judges
and the public was evidently against
the prisoner, who offered no evidence
to dispel the damaging proof of the po
lice in r.egard to his sirange conduct
previous to the alleged murder
Ou the last day of the trial the wo
man was called, aud testified that, at
the time of M. Kigaui's e'eath, Agnel
was not in the house, tior.had he been
therefor four or five hours, previous
About three o'cl ck iu the af'teri0Qu of
the 24th of August, she bad been
sumn.oned to the apartments of the de
ceased by a vio'eut ringing of his bell,
and h id fouod him apparently in the
agonies of death. As she approached
his bed, he had handed her a large en
velop, direcied to M. Sardou, and had
toll her to send for him. Greatly
frightened, she took the letter and hur
ried down-stairs, for the purpose of
sending her husband, as the sick man
had requested. As she reached the
bottom of the tairsr Ague! had enter
ed th.e. house. She ordered him to
run fir the decto- at once, that his
m ister was dying. Instead of going,
Agnel ran. up stairs to the room of M
R gaud., whom he found dead He
then proceeded to the resiicm e of the
doctor, whom ho accompanied hack to
the house in the Rue Yarrie. Mrs.
Frank gave the letter io charge of the
physician. The interest of her testi
monv ended here, but it opened the
way fo.i the evidence of Dr. 31. Sardou,
which, with the letter, were submi'ted
to the court. He testified that he.had
withhcll his testimouy and the letter
from tue previo is investigation of tho
case .solety for ' he benefit of medical
seienc -. and to establish a test of the
relbb lity of chemienl analysis in case
Gf this kind, The latter-forms the
strangest feature of tins sirangi; case,
ii thoroughly established the innocence
of the accused by shotting that the
deceased had jelibcrately- committed
j-uicide, ai d, further, that his dea'h
had not been occasioned by anenic at
all, but by a dose of autimony. Alto
gether, the cae is one of the most sin
gular in the history cf medical juris
prudence, and the medical sivnnts,
who conducted and defended the iheoiy
of the chemical tests IV r poison are as
toiiished and indignant at its termina

Failures in Society.
Society is full of failures that need
never have been made; full of men
who have never succeeded when they
might, have, and should have suc
ceeded; lull of women who, in the
first half of their day, did nothing
but cat and sleep and simper, and iu
the last half have done nothing but
perpetuate their follies and weaknesses.
The world is full, I say, of such people;
full of men in every trade and proles,
sion who do not amount to unythiog,
and of giiD and women without any
trade or profession who have no desire
to amount to anything; and I do not
speak irreve-ently, and I trust not
without due char ty, without making
due al!owan? for the inevitable iu
life, when I say that Gd and thought
ml men are weary of their presence
Every boy ought to i "prove on hi
father; every girl grow into a not 1-r,
gentler, more self-denying womanhood
than the mother. No leproduetion ot
former type will give the world the
perfect type. I know not where the
uitlenuiuiu is, as measured by distance
of time; but I do k .ow, and so do
you all, that it is a grejt way oil as
measured by the human growth and
expansion. We have uo such men
! and women yet no age has ever had
any as shall stand ou tartlun font
ae of peace that will nrt. conic until
hum are worthy oi it,
