MYSTERY OF THE FOURTEENTH AtV
RONDISSEMENT OF PARIS.
Blacalar Disappearance of Many Inhabit,
ants of the Quarter Entleteg- It Th
thus With Blnale Death of the GlgauM
For many years it is undeniably stat
ed that in the fourteenth arrondiase
montof Paris called the tomb of Issoii
a number of persons living in that
quarter had mysteriously and periodic
ally disappeared. The most careful re
searches, tho most minute inquiries, th
most skillful agents of the police had
failed to discover the least trace of them.
Every year successively some inhab
itants of this quarter would suddenly
disappear, leaving their friends over
whelmed with grief and anxiety. It is
aiso sratea tiiat these strauae, inexT)H-
cablo facts always occurred in the early
KjjruiB rrom rno zutn to tne last of
March and without regard to age or
First a notary disappeared. It was
thought ho had nsed bis client's funds
and tied to parts unknown. Then an old
woman, returning late one night from
market, was tho next victim, then a la
borer going homo from work. The last
victim had been a young girl a flower
maker out late delivering her goods.
From that timo she had as complotely
disappeared as if the earth had opened
and swallowed her up Strange to say,
no children had beon among the vic
tims. This peculiar fact was accounted for
in this way. These mysterious disap
pearances always occurred late at night,
when tho children were at home asleep.
As the time was drawing near for one
of these periodical mysteries the chiiif
of polieo became very anxious and in
stituted a striet surveillance, confiding
the matter to a number of the most skill
ful of his assistants, hoping tho com
bined ctlorts of so many zealous acents
would surely bo crowned with success.
Vou will now seo the result.
One night this fact can le verified
by applying to the office of the prefec
ture a policeman about 3 o clock in the
morning heard a distant musical song,
which seemed to come from tho bowels
of tho earth. Ho listened and fancied
tho sounds camo from an opening in the
center of tho street, at tho foot of an
enormous rock called tho tomb of Is
soir, or tho Giant's cave.
It may bo interesting to state that this
rock derived its namo from a lctrcnd
that a great giant had been buried there
many years liefore the Christian era,
and this rock had been placed thero to
mark tho tomb.
Surprised at this strange discovers
for tho opening had never been noticed
before the policeman waited, listening
to this peculiar song, when ho suddenly
saw a young man approaching. Ho
knew from his costume that, he was a
countryman latelv arrived in the city.
This young man also seemed to hear
tho subterranean sounds, first walking
slowly with a peculiar wavering step,
as if in cadence with this musical chant.
then faster and faster as ho drew near
tho fatal rock, until he ran with such
velocity that in spite of tho warning
cries of the policeman he was swallow-1
ed up in this mysterions opening. With
out taking a moment to consider the
policeman recklessly followed, first fir
ing his revolver and giving one or two
vigorous blasts on his whistle.
At this signal several of his comrades
quickly arrived. Tho musical chanting
had ceased, bnt they could hear in tho
dark, eavcruons depths tho muffled
sounds of a desperate strngglo.
13y the aid of ropes and ladders they
succeeded in entering this mysterious
chasm. The light of their lamps reveal
ed a sickening sight.
Tho countryman was lying on his
back writhing in tho grasp of an un
known monster, whoso horrible aspect
fros;o tho agents of police with terror.
It was as large as a full grown ter
rier, covered with wartlike protuber
ances and bristling with coarse brown
ish hair. Eight jointed legs, terminated
by formidable claws, wero buried in tho
body of the unfortunate victim. Tho
face had already disappeared. Nothing
could be seen bnt tho top of the head,
and the monster was now engaged in
tearing and sticking the blood from his
As soon as they recovered from their
horror and surpriso a dozen balls struck
tho body of this sanguinary beast
He raised up on his legs, a greenish,
bloody liquid flowing from his wounds,
and, with a frightful cry, expired.
Tho first policeman, who had given
the alarm, was lying unconscious in one
comer of the cavern, where he had fall
en, a distance of 80 feet.
It was with great difficulty they suc
ceeded in removing the two bodies and
the unknown monster from the cavern.
Tho poor countryman was dead, but the
policeman was soon restored to life.
The agents immediately sent for the
commissioner of police, who summoned
a naturalist in great haste.
The first established the identity of
tho victim: tho second declared tho
creature lying before him was a gigantic
spider. Tho species had beeu considered
extinct for centuries ever since the
days before the deluge. It was called
"Arachne gigaus" and was said to have
the power of enticing its victims by a
peculiar musical song. Nono had been
seen pr heard of for ages, bnt it is now
believed somo of theso sanguinary
beasts still exist in the deepest gal
leries of the catacombs.
Tho dead body of tho spider was con
veyed to tho Museum of Natural His
tory, where it was carefully prepared
and stuffed and is now on exhibition.

Yesterday's events at the Daven

association is to be congratulated,
too, in its admirable accommodations.

those at Galcsburg. the entire ar

far superior to that at Kalesbnrg that
comparison can scarcely be made.
The first race, the 2:30 class, re
sulted in Miss Williams winning two
heats; Dempsey, two; Judge B. one;
Red Bandanna, one, thus leaving the
contest between the first two to be
settled today. The other horses were
