. FINGER MARKS.
So'ne time since, a genttlemin residing at
Cambridge emp'oyed a m ison to do somte work
for him, and amtong othier things, to thin-whiten
the walls of one of his chiambers. This thin
whieninig i.s almost colorless till dried. The
gentlmtan was mneh surprised, on the morning
after the chtanmber was finished, to find on the
drarrer of his bureau, standinig in thu room,
white finger-marks. Openinig the drawer, he
found the samue marks on the articles in it, and
also otn a pocket-book. An examinaition re
veaed the same finger-marks on the contents of
the wallet, proving conclusively that thme manson,
witht his wet hands, had opened the drawer,
searched the wallet, which contained no mtoney,
ad then closed the drawer, without one think-'
ing that any' one would ever know it. The
thiwhitenmng, which chanced to be on his hand,
did not show at first, atnd he probably had no
idea that twelve htours' drying would reveal his
attemipt at depredation. As the job was eon
