The Wattigney Murder.
The regrettable murder which took place on the gallery of Pythian Hall
on New Year's piorning. is one of the object lessons from which our young
I. -n may profit. Books have been written, laws have been made and violated,
parents have lived in unrestful anxiety for their sons who have fallen into the
habit of arrying concealed and deadly weapons, without great results being
achieved in breaking up this dangerous habit. There is at present upon our
statute books a law which says that no one shall carry a concealed weapon, the
fine for which ranges from $100 to $500 and carries, also, a jail sentence at the
discretion mf the judge. But to a certain class of people this law has little
effect. as was demonstrated in the deplorable crime which resulted in the
death of young Alphonse Wattigny.
.Men carry deadly weapons for two reasons. One as a matter of self
prot.ction for those who hold responsible positions and are compelled to go
out at night unaccompanied, and who very often carry with them funds of
which they are custodians. Another class carry weapons, not so much as a
matter of self-protection, but in order, perhaps, to make good any bluff that
they may give out to those with whom they may become involved in a quarrel.
It is not an uncommon thing for pistols to be carried on holidays, such as
Fourth of July, Christmas, and New Year, days which are celebrated by ex
plosives and fireworks of all kind. It is very evident, however, that Willie
Kelly did not carry his pistol for the purpose of celebrating the New Year, for
the weapon was loaded with bullets which found their victim. No doubt to
day this young man regrets his act, although treating the matter with an air
of indifference, and should he be convicted of this murder and sentenced to
prison, he will have many days in which to regret that he was not more pru
dent in his younger days.
I ),'elmb-er 23 was marked in this
sc00hool by jollity and fun. Each class
rooxm had its program, which afforded
much pleasure to the children. In the
primary and grammar departments the
celebrations weer in the early after
noon; in the Kindergarten, in the morn
ing. The Belleville School Alumnae
gave to the little ones of the first
grade a pretty dance. This was from
3 to 5 p. m. and was made a success
largely by the efforts of Misses I.
O'Connor, I. Brookes, Hi. Fath, A. Bur
gis, C. Johnson, A. Tufts, L. Richer, R.
Tufts, F. Senner.
This little band of Alumnae bright
ens school occasions very pleasantly.
They have established the pretty cus
tom of entertaining each year tlhe first
grade pupils, and later the pupils pass
ing successfully from thBth grade.

When the Prussians invaded France
Marshal MacMIahon sent out Lieuten- t
ant Boyer. a member of his staff, to
secure information of the enemy's
numbers. his equipment. routes of
march, etc. Young Boyer was just
nineteen years old, possessed a peachy V
complexion, not e;en the downiest
beard and was chosen from a number
of volunteers because he could be suc
cessfully dlsguise.4 as a girl. When
he was made up to represent a demol
selle of the mlidle class all the oEf
cers of the staff declared that he made i
the prettiest woman they had ever
Soon after his departure Lucille Dem
orest (young Boyer) stopped one day
at a house on a road that the Prus
sian army was expected to pass and
said that she had started to go to visit
a married sister who lived farther east
ward; but. hearing of the coming troops.
she was afraid to go any farther. She
begged that she might be taken in till
the army had passed and the road
would be clear. Her request was
granted, and she was temporarily re
ceived Into the family.
There was in this house Jules Pon
eher. a lout of a fellow, who must
needs fall desperately in love with the
so called Lucille. Lieutenant Boyer.
instead of being pleased with the
young man's attentions, was in dread
of them, fearing they would betray
him. But the more he snubbed the fel
low the more he persisted. Then came
the Prussians, and a general of division
made his headquarters for a couple of
days. waiting for that portion of the
army to which he belonged to come t
up, in the very house where Boyer was
Boyer desired to secure some place
where he could overbear any conver
sation that might take place in the
general's room. There was no adjoin
ing apartment to which the spy could
gain access, but the cellar offered a
very convenient method. Watching til!
the general's quarters were temporar
lly vacant, having procured an auger.
he bored a hole in the floor.
As luck would have it, that very
evening the general called his brigade I
commanders to his headquarters for
instructions. Boyer saw them coming
in and went down into the cellar, tak
ing care that be was not seen to go
there. He was standing on a box
with his ear near the hole he had
made when the cellar door opened and
down came Jules Poucher with a can
die for an armful of firewood. There
were but two rooms in the cellar, and
Boyer could not effect a hiding. Being
in the room under the general's quar
ters and fearing to be heard by those
above, he advanced to meet Jules.
"Why. what are-you doing down
here alone in the dark?" asked the lat
Boyer. thinking the young qpan sym
pathized with the French cause, con
cluded to tell him that "she" was there
to learn Prussian war secrets.
Now, it happened that Jules that
very day had offered the Prussian gen
eral some information concerning the
French army for a consideration. He
didn't care if Lucille gave information
of the Prussians to the French; but,
seeing a good opportunity to press his
suit, he resolutely set to work to do so.
"Give me a kiss." he said.
"Walt a moment and I will," replied
Boyer. The lieutenant looked about
till he found a bit of wood about two
inches long. Then. returning to Jules,
who had set down the candle, Boyer
let drive a blow, taking Jules under
the chlin-a boxing feat be had learned
in the army athletic training school
and landed him on the dfloor. Before
Jules knew what had transformed a
beautiful girl into such a fury Boyer
sat on him, pulled open his jaws and
inserted the stick he had secured for
a gag. There was a clothesline in the
cellar, and before Jules had time to
recover from his surprise Boyer selzed
it and got it around his captive's
body outside his arms. Having so
cured these, to tie his legs was a com
paratively easy matter.
Jules was now In a position where
he could neither Interfere with the
spy's movements nor make a noise.
The latter mounted his box. put his
ear to the anger hole and listened. He
heard enough to learn the route that
would be taken by the Prussians in
the advance and the datea'of their
probable arrival at Metz. which was
principally what Marshal MacMahon
Meanwhile Jules sat on the floor
looking at the object of his love with
increasing wonder. He still had no
suspicion that his Lucille was a man,
but he considered her a mighty strong
woman. As soon as Boyer had learned
all he cared to know from above he
got down from his perch. He had
feared that, wood being needed, some
one would come down for it. So be
gathered an armful, and as he was
about to pass out, remembering how
Jules had bothered him with his atten
tlons. bade him adleu with a few
sturdy kicks. which the fellow could
neither resent nor complain of.
Boyer went upstairs. put the wood
Sdown in the kitchen. walked out of the
door and was not seen again in those
