SEARCH FOR A ROGUE.
A Detective's Experience—Com. Vanderbilt's
[From the New York Post, 21st.]
About two years ago the authorifies of
the City Bank were, thrown into great ex
citement by the disqpvery of a forgery of
which they weie tfce victims, and which
had been planned and executed within.ne
than usual still simi determination.
A cheek for $75,000, bearing the signa
ture of Commodore Yanderbilt, had been
presented and honored some two or three
months be tore, and no suspicion had been
awakened in the minds of the cashiers.
Subseqaent iuqairies proved bevond all
doubt that the check was forged, and it
appeared equally certain that all cluu to the
perpetrator ot the crime was hopelessly
lost. The matter was at once placed in
the hands of the Detective iouce, and Jir.
Elder, who at the time was at Saratoga,
was selected for the one ous duty.
It may not be uninteresting to recount
the methods selected with a view to the de
tection of the offender, and to point out
Low.invariably a criminal, however skill
mL leaves . behind him some slight trail,
that can be followed up successfully by a
man of penetration and perseverance, Mr.
Elder then, as soon as he received his sum
mons, returned to New York, and proeed
ed to the bank, where he had an interview
with the managers, and inspected the for
ge I document The signature was im
itated with a fre doin and exactness com
pletely accounting for the ease with which
the check had been uttered, and the gen
eral impression was, that it had been ex
ecuted by some one thoroughly conversant
with the hand writing of the Commodore.
Iu a case of this description the tirt sus
pected persons are usually the clerks. But
on this occasion the greatest eoLlidence
was reposed in the employees by the heads
of the es-tablishment, and they were nimble
to Eingle out any whom they conld for a
moment suspect of being guilty of uch a
transaction. Mr. Elder, however, for his
own satisfaction examined all individually
and the result of his examination was a
complete conviction of their entire inno
cence. The next step was to discover, if
possible, the personal appearance of the
man by whpm the check had been present
ed. Here again the difficulties seemed in
surmountable. Many weeks had elapsed,
many large checks had- in the meantime
been presented iu the same name, and the
memories of all were seemingly blank. The
quet-tiou was, had any check of the Com
modore's beien presented by any one not
in the habit of presenting tueui? and to
this inquiry an answer was elicited. One
of the clerks recollected a man, short, stout
and elderly, whom he had never seen be
fore or since, who had cshed a check lor
a large amount some time before, t-igned
to the best of his belief by the Couimo
dere. This, although undoubtedly im
portant if true, was but a very frail thread
to relr on, when it i considered that he
who gave of it had been led np to the point
by a series of cross-questionings. . It is by
no means rare for a man to assert his per
sonal knowledge ot an event under these
.circumstances, and to be couvinced of the
truth ot his statement, when in reality he
is speaking upon the authority of lu-resay
alone. This fact was remembered, a d
there was a disposition to doubt the abso
lute accuracy of the clerk's assert ion. He
was, however, very positive in adhering to
it, and added that his recollection of the
man was so vivid that he be:ieved he could
produce a pen-and-ink-sketch, by which he
would be recognizable. He w as as good
as his word. The sketch was made, and
handed ever to Mr. Elder, in whose pos
session it now remains. The original of
this portrait had driven to the bank in a
buggy drawn by a horse of great Ik auty,
and an attempt was accordingly made to
discover by whom or to whom the horse
had been sold or hired. It was almost ab
surd to hope for any good result from an
inquiry based upon such insufficient data,
but there appeared to be no other way in
which tha mystery conld be elucidated.
The horse and buggy were not traced, and
theouestion as to whether they were hired
or private property was -unsolved; but the
man was identified bya livery -stable keep
er as one Livingstone, - whom he had pre
viously known, and who had disappeared
from the vicinity. He was a married man,
with a family, and his wife and children
Lad, at no distant date, be en subsisting on
charity. It was plain that he was not jus
tified in driving a handsome turnout when
he was unable to support his family, and
the scent grow warmer.
The pen-and-ink sketch was also exhibit
ed to Commodore Yanderbilt. but he was
not able to identify it, although on consid
eration he said that it reminded Liui great
ly of a man who had called upon tim a
long while before, with a black horse for
Bale, of perfect form, and posf,essed of great
6ped. He Lad not bought the animal, as
he did not at that time require it, and Le
could not remember whether or no the
wouid-be eerier had given him any address.
Ifhe did, he mo6t assuredly had forgotten
it; bad made no note of so trivial an occur
rence, and had never seen or heard of Lini
since. All this, if not conclusive, tended
in no small degree to confirm an impres
sion, which had been gradually forming
in the minds of the police, that Living
stone was in some way or other interested
in the horse-trade. He erijoyed the reputa
tion of being an excellent judge of horse
flesh; Le had driven a magnificent horse
into the city, and he had attempted to sell
one equally fine to Mr. Yanderbilt; it was,
therefore, in no wise improbable that in
horses he would expend a considerable por
tion of his lll-eotten cains.
The next question was. Had any sale of
hordes taken place lately in new ioik, auu
if so, by whom Lad they been bought? The
dealers were interrogated, and after some
delay, it was discovered that an elderly
gent'lemnn, answering slightly to the de
scription of Livingstone, but giving the
name f Trice, had bought several, and
ordered them to be transmitted to Buffalo,
whither he was at once proceeding. Here,
at last was a positive clue, and the detect
ive did not hesitate an instant in taking
his departure for the 6am e place. As soon
as he arrived, he secured the co-operation
of the local police, and instituted the most
searching inquiries, ine cuasowaa in
ducted with the utmost caution, in case
any alarm should be given to the guilty
party, and enable him to make pood his
escape. But, in spite of every effort, the
trail became fainter, and the seekers began
to think that their task would have to be
relinquished, at all events for the present.
At the moment when the mystery seemed
darker than ever it was ascertained that the
horses purchased in New York had been
forwarded to Chicago from Buffalo, in com
pany with a number of otheis purchased
bv a Mr. Weech, who, it appeared, had
also become the owner of those be tight by
Mr. Price. Mr. YTeecb, too, was a stout,
elderly n.an. The coincidence was singu

Here the old course was pnrsued.and the

great quantity of all kiudi of hoise-trap-
ping. to say nothing about ploughs and
other agricultural implements. He was
short, stout, rather past middle age, aud
vety like the sketch. He represented him
self as a man ol independent property, who
was weary or a do-nothing state ot exist
ence, and had resolved to try his hand at
farming and the breeding of horses. He
very seldom came to town, but spent his
time in personally superintending the im
provements he was nieditatiug. His wife
awd fauiilv were with him, and lived in the
house he had bought with the farms.
Tbe description of the man and his ha
bits tallied so exactly with the preconceiv
ed notions of the police, that they felt as
sure of their prey as if they had him already
iu their clutches. It was resolved to pay a
visit to this enterprising gentleman farmer.
and Mr Elder prepared his papers, aud
put a warrant in his pocket, for immediate
execution, should his surmies be correct.
Before starting for the farms, however, all
dou'.t was done away with. 1 he gentle
man, wiioever he was, naa invariably paia
ready money, and his name, if ever known,
had beeri forgotten by the majority of those
who dealt with him; but on the eve of their
departure from Chicago, the pen aud ink
portrait was recognized as that of "Mr.
Living -tone" by a man who was instructed
to forward certain merchandise to him at
his farm. So it was evident that he had
no suspicion of the search after Lim, and
had fearlessly resumed his real title.
Mr. Elder did not go alone, but prevail
ed on several acquaintances to accompany
him. They agreed to represent themselves
as a party of gentlemen who had heard a
great deal about the improvements introd
uced by Mr. Livingstone, and were desir
ous of inspecting his estate. (Personal dis
guise was unnecessary, as Livingstone and
Eluer ha i never met) Arrived at their des
tination, they went straight to the house,
a large and comlortable building, and ask
ed for the proprietor. Mr. Livingstone
was not in just then, but if the gentlemen
would be kind enough to walk down to the
farm-yard he could be found somewhere
about the barns.
The figure which advanced "to meet
them was instantly recognized by the de
tective, so admirably had the memory of
the clerk served him in drawing the
According to previous arrangement, Mr.
Elder addressed him at one by name:
"How do you do, Mr. Livingstone? I
hope that you like this place as well as

for a moment lose his presence of mind,

his pocket produced a pair of handcuffs
and advanced towards him.
The whole demeanor ot the man altered.

ested his entire innocence:

He was taken to the house, accusing the
police of outrage violeutly all the time, and
pro . ising to say nothing about the insult
if he were liberated at once. Of course,
not the slightest attention was paid either
to his prayers or threats, anil when at last
he became aware of the fact, he was silent
When he had first caught s:ght of the hand
cuffs, a rapid movement of his hand to
wards the breast of his coat indicated that
he carried some cencealed weapon there.
This suspicion was verified, when he was
searched in his own house, by the discov
ery of a lsrge sluug-shot (a lump of lead
attached to a thick elastic band, ) a fearful
implement, that would break whatever it
struck. He made no remark when the
slung-shot wa being Landed round, but,
on the search being resumed, he said that
there was nothing elso to be found on him,
and that nothing short of force could induce
him to go to New lork,
He altered his opinion, however, short
ly, when asked to amount for the rinding
of $10,000, m bills, concealed on his per
son, and those bills the identical bills paid
over the counter of the City B-uik to the
man who presented Com. Y.iuderbilt's
check. Denial af ter this was iutile, and he
consented to accompany his captor buck to
this city. The process of identification
was easy, and the soiJimrd gentleman of
fortune stood revealed as the forger Mr.
Livingstone, Had it not been lor the
money on him, it is qnue possible, and
even probable that he would have escaped
all punishment; and Lad he not indulged
his well-known taste for horse-flesh, he
might have spent the remaindt r of his days
in quiet seclusion. At his trial it was sta
ted that no less than fort y horses Lad been
already purchased by him, besides all man
ner of suitable furniture, implements, etc.,
evidencing tbe depth of his knowledge on
the subject His conviction was insured
from the moment of his capture, and he is
now undergoing a sentence of four years
and nine months' imprisonment. Whether
his old tastes will reassert themselves on
his release, is a problem to be solved ; but
it is scarcely credible that the short, elder
ly gentleruun will have another equally
good opportunity of realizing so large a
sum; if, by chance, fortune should so favor
him. we can only hope tor the sake of tke
public, that there are mauy other clerks iu
New York city who-are capable of draw
ing a good pen-and-ink hkeness from mem
ory. "Do you think," I asked Mr. Elder, "that
this was his first offence?"
"Well." was his reply, "I gn. ss not"

Resuscitation of Kriel the Wife-Murderer
—The Story of his Wonderful
Escape from the Death Penalty, by
Partial Strangulation—He is Galvanized
Back to Life, and is Sent
Away into Obscurity.
From the Louisville Commercial, Jan. 26.
We purpose laying before our readers one
of the most startling events that has trans
pired for many years in our midst It is so
well authenticated, and yet so incredible,
so terrible, and with an air of truth sur
rounding it, that we cannot refrain from
giving to the public what has been rumor
ed vaguely for some days in portions of our
It is well known that the unfortunate
KrieL who suffered death or was supposed
to have done so -last Friday went to his
doom grim, implacable, aud unnaturally
firm. It was well known that his desire to
live was paramount to every other earthly
desire. His bearing on the scaffold was so
unnaturally calm, that those who stood
near him thought the man did not realize
that death was so near, but still clung to
life with a terrible tenacity.
When the rope that held the trap was
severed, and the body felL it was a subject
of remark that the closed hands and the
position of the legs and feet remained en
tirely unchanged, showing a tremendous
exercise of will and control of nerve. The
neck was not broken, neither was the rope
drawn so closely about the man's neck that
its mark could be distinguished, nor was
the skin chafed a particle.
Gen. Whittaker, who was present at the
execution by tbe request of th prisoner,
and who examined the body as .it hung,
declared in the hearing of those in the vi
cinity of the so .Hold, that pulsation in the
carotid arteries -of the neck were discerni

ants declared life extinct No one can
question the General's judgment and dis
cretion, aud when he placed his fingers on
the arteries and declared there was circula
tion still discernible, in oposition to the
opinion of medical practitioners bebide
him, mauy felt that there might be grounds
lor the apprehension that the criminal
would evade death.
The circumstances favoring this remark
able story are strong and closely connected.
Alter hanging some minutes. Uriel's body
was placed ia the coffin. The limbs re
mained flexible, the hands opened with the
least persuasion, and were crossed on the
bosom. The eyes that stared half open
when the black cap was withdrawn, re
mained open after the slight touch upon
them, and the face assumed an appearance
of mobility and rest
The red flushing in the cheeks came
back, to a certain extent, and the dark
coloring on the neck, under the knotted
rote, partiallv disappeared. The short
time that had elapsed between his being
placed in the coffin and being driven away
was also a subject of remark.
No one seemed to have any charge of the
body, and it was driven away in a lonely
heaise to the vault at the cemetery.
Now comes the closing scenes in this
Near midnight a light wagon was drive u
rapidly out Walnut street, in which were
seated three muffled, sileat figures, one of
them a surgeon of great experimental
knowledge, a firm believer in the theory of
resuscitation of animal life through the
In the wagon was a mattress and several
dark blankets. The wagon halted near the
cemetery fence; the horse was held by the
driver, and two men went to the vault, car
rying between them a large sack well filled.
In a short time they returned bearing with
them a motionless figure shrouded in a
blanket The figure was placed on the
mattress, and in silence the wagon was
driven back to the city. The body was con
veyed to tbe surgery of a most skillful aud
learned surgeon, where some 10 or 12 ex
cited and expectant students stood anx
iously awaiting the arrivul of the strange
party. The body was placed in a recum
bent position on the table, the clothing un
loosened, the chest extended, and an incis
ion made iu one of the veins of tbe arm.
At first but a small drop of dark colored
blood came forth, but repeated incisions
and manipulations of the body caused it at
last to trickle forth more freely.
The galvanic battery was applied, and,
horrible and wonderful to relate, in less
than 15 minutes the warm blood commenc
ed to course through the chilled body, and
at last the eyes were opened. The students
stood appalled, and could hardly realize the
extent of the demonstration before them.
One of them spoke to Kriel, asking him,
"Are you sensible ?" The eyes ans ered
expressively, end the lips opened ineffectu
ally, for no speech came forth. Stimulants
were poured down the throat, and the re
vived criminal, and in less than one hour
after he had been placed in the surgery,
Kriel sat np and asked them "What have
done? Am I alive J"
The consternat on and yet the profes

the life of the wretched man. Justice had
been satisfied by the public execution,
though life returned. Why should they
deliver np what had so providentially and
wonderfully been restored ?
None of Kriel's personal friends were
notified. Strangers disguised -him, fur

man, weak and tottering, but firm and im

silent friend, who kept near him on the

THE SECRETS OF BEAUTY.
How to Improve the Face, Figure,
Complexion, &c.—What Science
Two Philadelphia physi 'ians have uni
ted in the production of a book on "Per
sonal Beauty; How to Cultivate it in ac
cordance with the Laws of Health, ' which
contains many important maxims, from
which we glean the following:
PROPORTIONS OF A BEAUTIFUL BODY.
The height should be exactly eqnal to
the distance between the lips of the middle
fingers of either hand when the arms are
fully extended. Ten times the length of
the hand, or seven aud a half times the
length of the foot, or five times the diame
ter of the chest lrom one armpit to the
other, should also each give the height of
the whole body. The distance f'om tbV
junction of the thiuhe to the ground should
b the same as lrom that point to the crowu
of the head. The knee should be precisely
midway between t!ie satoe point and the
bottom of the i.eel. The. distance from
the elbow to the tip of the middle finger
should be the same as front the elbow to
the middle line of the breast. From the
top of the head to the level of the chin
should be the same as from the level of the
chin to that of the armpits, and from the
heel to the toe.
A want of symmetry in the shoulders is
very corn ai on among those who write or
paint steadily. The right shoulder usually
becomes higher, aud the bones more prom
inent These persons should practice
daily and regularly sitting wiih the left
shoulder elevated and the right depressed.
They should avoid low-necked dresses, and
on state occasions conceal the lack of uni
formity by a solt padding. A course of
calisthenics is also of great service.
In regard to obesity and leanness, the
Banting system of diet is explained aud
recommended, but with caution. It seems
that corpulence is often a protection thrown
out : y the system against some threatening
disease. If the corpulence is then success
fully attacked, the victory may cost the
person her life. A case is recorded by Dr.
Maccary where an obese child was reducsd
in flesh, bnt btcame ever after subject to
epileptic fits. A number of instances have
been recently published in medicinal jour
nals, where ladies have brought ou fatal
disease of the kidneys by a too determinate
and unwise redncaon of their weight A
case came recently under our own notice,
where a young lady weighing nearly 200
pounds entered upou the reduction of her

In some persons the hair grows down
upou the fort-bend, destroying its contour
and beauty. This may be remedied by
carefully removing the hairs, which are
generally thin and fine, by one of the de
pilatories to be mentioned hereafter. Char
lotte Bremer, in her Life of her sister,
Frederica Bremer, relates that this was one
of thegiilish troubles of the gifted author
ess, and her mother ofiea regretted the dis
flguremeut. One day Frederica cut off the
hair around her forehead wi?h the scissors.
Her mother, not at once perceiving what
she had been alont, remarked in the course
of the day, "Why Frederica, your forehead
is not so low alter all. ' This delighted her
daughter, but koon the hairs commenced
to rt appear, stiff an 1 bristly. But with he
roic pi severances, Frederica pulled them
out, one alter auother, with a pair of twee
zeis, until she had achieved that fine high
forehead, which those who saw her iu her
visit to this country may remember.
REMODELING THE NOSE.
Dr. Cid, an inventive surgeon of Paris,
noticed that elderly people, who for a long
time have worn eyeglasses snpjorted ou
the nose by a spring, are apt to have this
organ long and thiu. This he attributes
to the compression which the spring exerts
on the arteries by which the nose is nour
ished. Tue idea occurred to him that the
hint could be matbi useful. Not long af
ttrwarl a young lady of fifteen years con
sulted him, to see it he conld restore to
moderate dimensions her nose, which was
large, fleshly, aud nnsihfly. The trait,
he found, was hereditary in her family, as
her mother and sister were similarly afflic
ted. This was discouraging, as hereditary
pecularities are particularly obstinate, but
the doctor determined to try his method.
He took exact measurements, and had con
structed for her a "lunettt pmce niz," a
spring and pad for compressing the artery,
which she wore at ni,,ht, and whenever she
conveniently could in the daytime. In
three weeks a consolatory diminution was
evident, and in three months the young

WHERE TO WEAR GARTERS.
A handsome lg is a rarity, we Lad al
most said an impossibility, among Ameri
can women. The reason ot this is the
place where they wear their garters. No
French woman, no English woman of cul
tivation, now-a-days wears her garter be
low the knee. It is ruinous to the shape
of the calf. More than this, it has serious
consequences of another kind. The prin
cipal vein of the leg (vena S"phena brevis)
runs just beneath the skin uuiil it nearly
reaohes the knee, when it 6iuks between
the muscles. Now if this is constric ed at
its largest part by a tight garter, the blood
is checked iu its return to the heart, the
feet are easily chilled, and more liable to
disease, the other veins of the leg are swol
len into hard, blue knots, become varicose,
as it is called, and otten break, forming
obstinate ulcers. This is a picture which
a physician sees nearly every day. With
the garter fastened above the knee, all this
pain and deformity is avoided, but it is
still better to wear no garter at all, and se
cure the stocking by tapes to a belt around
the waist In this case, however, a well
fitting stocking is needed.
FALSE CALVES—CURING CORNS.
The wearing of false calves is condemned,
as is alo the practice ot resorting to corn
doctors for the extirpation of corns. In
stead of this, every one can extract his
own corns. The ouly instruments needed
are a p:tir of small steel forceps, and two or
threo blunt-pointed steel or silver instru
ments, technically called quadrilles. The
corn id first softened by immersion in warm
water, or by a drop of oil or glyceriue.
The foot is then held in a good light, and
the centre of the cjrn loosened by passing
the point of the qnadiil'e gently around the
circumference of the callous portion. This
is seized by the forceps, and held to one
side while the instruments loosen the other
side. So the operation is continued, very
gently and leisurely until the whole cal
lous is loosened and picked out by tne lor-
ceps. Under ordinary circumstance, not
the least pain need be given and not a
drop of blood shed.
WHEN TO CUT THE HAIR.
The growth of the hair in a healthy scalp
is from eight to ten inches a year. Its ra
pidity is not the same at all times. A
German writer who has given great atten
tion to this small matter (if, indeed, any of
the operations of nature should be called
small) has found that it grows laster in the
daytime than at night, and in the summer
than the winter. There is a common no
tion that the increase is also more marked
in the first hall ot the lunar mouth, and
there are not wanting men of science who
have endorsed this belief. "Who does not
know by his own experience," coufidentlv
says the Abbe Toaldo in his Saggio Meteor
ologico, "that the hair and nails grow fast
er alter the new than alter the mil moon.'
To which question most physicians coolb
reply that nobody knows it As it is a
matter of one's own experience, we recom
mend every oue who is curious about it to
nliKervA for himself, and make ud his own
mind irrespective of tLe agreement of doc
HOW TO WEAR THE BEARD.
Each individual must judge lor himself,
but there are certain rules he must never
transgress. We will mention a lew of them
They are founded oh those same laws of
beauty on which we have been harping bo
much. One of them is, that the face should
present, when seen from in front, a general
oval ontliue from above downward. This
can be greaily aided by the beard. If the
face is round the beard ou the chin should
be cultivated; il long and thin, then side
whiskers are appropriate. A person with a
Hit broad nose should never wear a mous
tache, nor should one with a very short and
thin upper lip, as in the former case it
gives a brutish, in the latter an ignoble as
pect, to the features. Still less should a
person with retreating f rehead or hin cul
tivate this style of beard, as it gives the
profile a yet more nnlavorable outline. A
bald-headed man should not wear a heavy
beard, as the contrast is ludicrous. A full
beard, however natural it is, is not suitable
to Lim who Las but a sparse, hungry, and
irregular growth on his face, nor to him
wh:e beard sprouts out crooked, brisily
SUMMARY ADVICE TO A WOMAN WHO WISHES
TO BE BEAUTIFUL.
First, let her correct Ler bad habits, if
she has any, of carriage, of expression, of
want ot cleanliness, of false modes of dress,
of injadiciousdiet, and of indolence.
Secondly, let her study her own com
plexion, expression, stature, profile, and
outline, precisely as an artist does those of
one of his ideal figures, and with the same
care and pains as the artist, let her choose
for herself the contrasting aud harmoniz
ing colors, the coiffure, the expression, and
the manner best adapted to bring out
prominently all her natural advantages,
and throw into the shade all unfavorable
Thirdly, let her unsightly warts and
scars be done away with, let hairs which
injure the appearance be destroyed, the
complexion and Lair be cultivated, the
form developed, diminished, or increased
by hygienic, emotional, and dietetic means,
th 3 features and organs of special sense
subjected, if need be, to the training aud
the modification of the surgeon, and the
general health improved under the advice
of an intelligent physician, the teeth,
voice, and even the nails attended to. If
she has done all this, there will be little
need for the purely vtnal cosmetic arts,
such aa paint, powder, patches and rouge.
A Touching Incident in the Life of a
[From Early London Days.]
One beautiful summer day there was a
great festival in the large park at Vienna.
This park is culled by the pi ople the
Prater. It is full of lovely trees, fine walks
and little pleasnre-honss. At th- time of
which I am speaking it was almost covered
with crowds of people. Among a number
of organ-grinders, beggars, and girls who
played on harps there stood an old music
ian. He had once been a soldier, but his
pension was not enough to live on. Still,
he did not like to beg; therefore, on this
particular festival day, he took his violin
and placed under a tree in the park. H
had a faithful dog with him, which lay at
his feet and held a hat in his month, so
that passers-by might cast coins into it.
On the day which I have just mentioned
the dog sat before him with tho old hat.
Many people went by, and heard the mu
sician playing, bnt they did not help him
much. I wonder the people did not give
him more, for he was truly a pitiable ol
ject His faee was covered with scars re
ceived iu his country's battles, and he wore
a long gray coat, which he had kept ever
since he had been in the army. He even
had his old sword by his sid,ior he wonld
not walk in the street without carrying his
trusty friend with him. ne had only
three fingers on his right hand, so that he
held the bow with difficulty. A bullet had
taken off the two others, and almost at the
same time a cannon ball had tiken off his
left leg. Tbe last money he had had been
spent iu buying new strings for bis violin,
aud he was now playing with all Lis
6trengih the military air he had learned
when a boy with his lather. He looked,
sad enough as he saw the multitudes pass
by in their strength, and youth, mid
beauty; for he knew that if he did not ob
tain some money that evening he would
have to go to bed supperless. His dog was
better off, for he sometimes found a bone
here and there to satisfy the cravings of
It was late in the afternoon, tho musi
cian's hopes were almost like the sun they
were both going down together and he
placed his violin down by Lis side, and
leaned against the tree, the tears streaming
down his cheeks. He thought none of that
giddy crowd saw him; but he was mistaken.
Not far off stood a gentleman in fine
clothes, who had a kind heart; and when
he saw that no one gave the soldier any
thing, he was touched with sympathy. Go
ing to the dog, and looking into the hat, he
saw ouly two srasll copper coins in it. He
then paid, "Mv good friend, why do you
not play longer?"
"O. replied the old man, " my dear sir.
I cannot; my arm is 6o tired that I cannot
hold the bow; besides I have Lad no din
ner, and I have little prospect of supper."
The stranger resolved to aid him as best
he could ; aud giving Lim a piece of gold,
said, "I will pay you if you will lend me
your violin for an hour."

money is worth more than half a dozen fid
dles like mine.
"Never mind," said the stranger; "I only
want to hire is one hour."
"Very well; you can do what yen will,
said the owner.
The gentleman took the fiddle and the
bow in his hands, and then said, "Now,
you take the money, and I will play. I
am quite 6ure the people will give me some
The first air had not been finished before
the people, observing the strange sight,
and hearing beautilul music, stopped a
moment in curiosity. Every one aw that
the fine looking stranger was playing for
the poor man; but none knew who he was.
By-and-by the people began to drop money
into the hat, and the dog seemed delighted
to receive so many pieces of gold for his
master. The circle of hearers became
larger and larger. Even the coachnien of
the spleudid carriage begged the people in
side to stop and hi-ar the niusif. Hull the
monev increased. Gold, silver and copper
were thrown into the hatby old and young.
The do J now began to growl. What could
be the matter? One gentleman, as he drop
ped a large piece of money into the hat
had struck him on the nose, and be came
very near letting all the money fill. Bnt
the hat soon became so heavy tlat Le
could not hold it any longer.
"Empty your hat, old min, said the
people, and wa will fill it again for you."
He pulled out a handkerchief aud wrap
ped the money in it and put in his violin-
ba8- . . . ...
The stranger kept on playing, and the
people cried out, "Bravo! brave!' He
played first one tune and then another.
The chil Iren seemed carried off with de
light At last he played "God bless the
Emperor Francis." Ail hats and caps flew
off their heads, for the people loved their
emperor. The music came to an end; the
hour was ended, aud the performer handed
back the violin to the happy and delighted
"Thank you," said the gentleman.
"May God bless you!" and he disappeared
in the crowd. Who is be, cried the people?
A certain person sitting in on of the
coaches said. "I know him. It is Alexan
der Boucher, the distinguished violinist
It is just hke him. He saw that the poor
musician needed help, and he has helped
him to good purpose."
The people then gave three cheers for
Boucher, and put more money in the hat
Its owner went Lome that evening richer
than Le Lad ever been before. When he
went to his bed Le folded his Lands and
prayed that God might "bless good
Boucher;" so that, when he should come to
be old, he, too, might have a friend to help

A LUNATIC'S MARRIAGE.
The Insane Son of a Wealthy Broker
Inveigled—Arrested for Lunacy and
Released on Habeas Corpus—Wandering
Through the Streets in His
From the N. Y. Sun.
Prior to October last, Herman Albert, son ,
of a wealthy down-town broker, had for
some time been an inmate of th Lunatic
Asylum, on Elackwell's Island. His treat
ment there Lad been productive of such
beneficial results as led to his discbargo t
therefrom apparently restored to reason
Freedom from restraint, however, soon -brought
on a return of his malady, and La
was sent back to the Asylum only to bo
again discharged as sane. After this pro
ceeiling had been several times repeated.
He became at last a permanent inmate cf -the
asylum, being granted short furloughs
during his sane intervals.
Towards the close of September of last
y ar, Albert was granted a furlough of one '
mouth, and on the 2Gth of October bis leasa
of absence having expired, Le dory pre
sented himself at the asylum. If, as his -subsequent
acts prove, he was still mad,
there was a strange method in Lis madness,
for the experienced doctors of the asylum,
after careful examination, declared Lira
still sane and further extended his lease
another month. ,
For a few days nothing occurred to lead
Herman's friends to suspect he was lew
clear in his intellect than he Las been for
the past mouth. On the 30th of October,
four days after Le had returned from the
Asylum, he left his father's house oa Tenth
street, and much to tbe consternation of
all the inmates failed to return. Several '
days passed without any tidings of him,
when it was ascertained that he was back
at the Asylum, whither he had been sent -.
by a magistrate before whom Le had been
brought for roaming the streets while in
dangerous state of lunacy.
O'j leaving his home Herman, as was his
custom, quietly walked through some of
the principal thoroughfares of the eity for
exercise, until when, where, or how is net
known, he was enticed into a disreputable '
