genial (Jerman, of middle age and
pleasantly stout but is very slirewd in
business matters. On Wednesday
morning hist he had a customer who
picked out .-.-U( worth of gold watch
chains, and ordered them to te sent to
.laeot f Jerard's, - lioiul street, to be
expressed t A. Weed, ef Stamford,
'im. "Who is A. Ved7" Mr.
Sehiag imp-iired; "I don't know

The customer Was tall, well-dressed
and preKs'.ssing. Alter lie had gone
'lr. Sehlag burned to eKd A
H'.i:'i!e-'s, and learned that A. Weed
is a jeweller of excellent business
standing, and accordingly in the way
of business he fancied it would be well
to know more about him. Therefore,
instead of sending the chains to Jacot
cv (jerard, he put them into a stout
pasteboard box, and carried them him
self toMamford on the i: m. train.
Wiu-ii he e ntered Mr. Weed's store he
saw a man that resembled his cus
tomer, "I have brought some gold chains
that were wnlere-d by Mr. A. We-ed,"
"1 am A. Weed," the man re
sponded!, ''but I don't know what
you mean. I haven't ordered any
watch chains "
This was the fact. Mr. Schlag was
overjoyed, lie had escaped the wiles
of a swindler. He showeel Mr. Weed
the chains. "I haf paid to come
here," he said," but I haf safed $8U0."
Then lie lxxcd up his chains and
wrapped an old newspaper aliout
them, remarking that he did not
want any one to know what he was
carrying. After he hail done this he
went to the telegrapli office in Stan
ford direct and telegraphed to his firm
that the man who had ordered the
chains was a swindler.
This was at four o'clock. At alnit
that hour the stranger re-appfired at
Xordt A Schlag's warehouse to look at
sonic other watch chains. He picked
out $'!uo worth more of them and said
that as he was alxait to go back to
Stamford he might as well carry them
along. Xo objection was made to tins
in view of the excellent standing of A
Weed, and the chains were given to
him. A few minutes afterwards Mr.
Schlag's telegram was rtceived, but
it was too late to recover the
After Mr. Schlag had opened the
box to show the telegraph operator the

A FEABFTJL tragedy.
A Dark Lcfef from the Criminal History
Among the numerous moss-grown
old tombstones iu the grave-yard of
Williamsburg, Va., is one which bears
the following inscription:
Sacred to the Memory of
Who ilied at the ace of twenty-five, slain
with iier twoinfantUuughters, by
her own hiifband.
Sho yrtfH fnlr to look upon, pure a snow,
and In-loved by a. I who knew her.
iivine Providence uloue
knows why tshe bad
to perish so miserably.
This epitaph, some of the words of
w hich are hardly legible any longer,
is the onlv record left of one of the
mo.- t terrible elomestie tragedies that
ever took place in the Old Dominion.
It was in l.iis that John .enipniii, a
young man, who said lie to irom
anta I ruz, in the est indies, ar
rived at Williamsburg, mil settleel
there as a tobacco planter. He bad
nleiitv of monev. and was able to pur
chase alout one thousand acres of the
finest soil within a short distance of
the old town.
Behisr apparently a gentlemen in
every sense of the word, Mr. Hemphill
was admitted to the best society in
his new home, and a year later he
was marrie'd to Ha rah Jones,

The wedding festivities leing celebra
ted with extraordinary pomp and
splendor. In courseejf time two daugh
ters were Urn to the young couple,
and everybody predicted a long ca
reer of cloudless happiness for them.
Alas! How terribly these bright an
t'cipations were to be disappointed It
vftion Christmas eve, in 1801, that n
strange-looking man, in a sort of mil
itary uniform, appeared at the house
of Mr. Scmphill, who was in Rich
mond at the time. Mrs. Hemphill re
ceived the stranger in the parlor.
"Do you speak French, madam?"
he said to her in very broken Kn-glb-h.
She replied in the affirmative.
"Then, madam, please send your
two nurse-girls with the Childrcn out
of the room."
She did so, and looked in terrogative-
ly at her visitor. The latter hesitated
a moment, then said in a tone of tleep
"Poor lady, I have terrible tidings
"Heavens'." she cried, turning very
pale, "My husband "
"Vour husband is an

"Sir!" she exclaimed, indignantly.

"Do vou tell me the truth?" she
"lie is a Spanish thief, and was
sent to the irsdlt-vs of Barcelona for

"His true name is Juan Celirio. If
you will let me remain iu an adjoining

"I expect linn back every mo

who had rushed after him, grapphil
with him, and succeeded, after a des
perate struggle, in shackling him.
The news ef this horrible tragedy
spread like wildfire through the old
town, and in Ies than twenty min
utes a large concourse of people had
gathered ill front of Hemphill (!iae
Vociferous threats to lynch the mur
derer were made, and the-, Deputy
Sheriffs, who were promptly on hand
to arrest him, had the utmost uiffienlty
in taking him to jail, where he was

to commit suicide.
