pemilttel to elaose between the time
of bur death ami that of the . atllxing 1
of the soals, and the time had been mado ' '''
good use of. Then there was a case
that showed an audacity at pilfering al- '
togthor uncommon, even on the part of
a French servant, which took place at
one of tho fashionable Parisian hotels t
some time airo. An American, .lady, ... ,
who was In delicate health, but who
was by no moans considered an invalid '
cither by her friends or herself, died "'
suddenly from some , malady of the
heart during the temporary absence of
her husband in - America. - - This lady
possessed a head of hair of uu wonted ..
luxuriance and beauty tho long, thick t , ,
tresses when loosoued. falliug almost to
the floor when Bho stood up, although
she was by no moan a short woman.
When the body was prepared for Inter. '
ment, a few hours after her sudden do
mise, every vestige of this marvelous .. ,
hair had disappeared, and it was with
difficulty that a friend of tho family " '
who was present contrived to soenre a - -lock
of sufficient dimensions to till a.
locket as a relio for the absent, bus-,

tho favorite French maid of tho do- '

ciotis and sacrilegious theft, but there
was no - ontt.lve prnol of her guilt.
There were other person who had ac
cess to ; the room where tho body lay,
