on Lytic street to the Market street
car line to go to the hotel, last
night, when as she passed an alley a
tall, stout, well-dressed and fclili.oth
faced man stepped In frout of lior,
blocking the way, and, raising his
lint, revealing a face of more than or
dinary intelligence, said: "Ueg vour
punlou, miss for stopping you on such
a blttur cld night too, but 1 must

man, and he seisil one arm with one

to wrench the purse irom lwf? grasp
Miss McDormott caught him by the
throat with hur dibougaged baud und
thoy struggled from the middle of the
sidewalk to the curb.
The footpad suddenly struck the
young womau sovcral times on tho

her strength began to fall uml tho
man took the purse from her hand,
partly tearing the glove. Seeing a
diamond ring on tho girl's finger, he
attempted to remove it She clinched
her fingers tightly and for the first
t.'mo screamed for lielp.
The man, alarmed, ran down the
alley. MJs McDermott. stopping tho

the unlawful use of the United Males
malls, as many a criminal has learned
in a short career.
In tho west the malls are not used
for tho nromotion of frauds as fre-
(lucntly as In tho east, and in my ex- 1
perienco tho grcnter part of the
work in my department lias been de
tecting tho pillering of letters or tho
robbing of postolllccs. Iot ono man
in a thousand is abloto extract money
or valuables from the mails.
Yet fools will try to do it. Queer,
how a man will place his head under
t.ie guillotine, but tho temptation of
)iand)ing valuables proves too great
, Is wrong for persons to inclose
looso bills In letters, as It puts temp
tation In tho way of every man who
handles them, it eostabnt little more
to register tho lotters or purchase a
monoy order. Hut, ns for fakes, my
experience with them has been si ght.
There was ono man in this city
who carried on his operations for
three years before we can Jit him.
His scheme was to so.ul llamlng ad
vertisements all ovor tho country,
showing a bupcrior article of well au
gurs and derricks for a prl'-e far below
the average. In this way he caught
many a sharp man, up woutu exact
from them a puyinunt In advance, any?
where from Sr. to b75. Of course ho
had no further correspondence, with
his victim uftor getting tho advance
money, and ho would get lottors up
braiding him for Doing a cheat and a
fraud. It was through tho e letters
that complaint', reached us irommany
pf the victims. Wo started on his trail
n.ul flnallv located him In tho tliild
story of a tenement house on Frank
lin avenue. Here, In abject
poverty, wo found thfl ujiarper
living with his wife and throo chii:
dren, almost without clothing and ho
tually starving. Strange what ho had
done with tho monoy ho had received,
for in tho time ho had been carrying
on h s operations ho must have real
ized thousands of dollars, but it was
all gone. Ho said ho had SDont
it on his family and in advor
tlsinir. On account of his poverty,
tho neod his family had of his support
anil In view of tho fact that hu Had

his line, which was a big one, was
suspended during good behavior.
Another good one was a hchemo
that caught victims like molasses does
Hies. Advertisements weio inserted
in city and country newspapeis for
traveling men to handle cigars, ex
perience not. necessary. Tills, of
eourso, caught "suckers," especially In
the country, where numberless youn
men aro etremoly mix 911s to become
drummers. The "axiieiiunoe nof.
necessary" was tho tru up card. Ttio
victim vould write on, with descrip
