French criminal history contains no
more sensational story tban that of the
soldier Volsln, who, after being con
victed ten years ago for the murder of
a woman and sent to penal servitude
at Cayenne, has Just been declared in
One of the grimmest circumstances
of the soldier's case was that he was
condemned on the testimony of his
own mother. This Ja the story:
One'morning la. the smumer of 1S02
Mine. Adam, a woman who kept a tav-
TWO OP THE.-COWirTS WERK EATF.S PI
era at Martlnvnst, n'nr Cherbourg,
was found murdered. Hor skull had
been smashed iu w"ilu n fk1u siphon.
The looting of her strong box and
money -drawer showed conclusively her
slayer's motive. The only clew was
the epaulet of a sergeant of infantry.
which, it proved, was that o a soldier
named Langlois. The sergeant,-however,
though he admitted having drunk
at Minn Adam's the day before,
showed to the satisfaction of the iolico
officials tbat he could not have been
in the ueighlxrhood when the murder
was committed. Then a peasant re
ported that he had seen a soldier of the
line on the road near the tavern on the
night that Mine. Adam was killed. One
of the detectives working on the case
promptly made inquiries ut the milita
ry post at ltenues and there discovered
that an infantryman named Voisin had
not been present at roll call ou the
morning after the murder, lie also dis
covered that Voisin lived close to Mine.
Now comes the most etriking part of
the whole- story a part that reminds
ono of a Gaboriau novel. Voisin, who
was immediately arrested, showed no
special uneasiness, remarking that he
could prove an alibi by his mother. His
explanation of his absence from roll
call was that while out on furlough he
had got drunk and gone into a barn to
sliep. When he woke up, it -was too
late to go back to barracks, so he con
cluded to go home .and was on the way
to his mother's bouse when wen near
the place of the murder. Ills mother
could testify that he was at home when
the crime was committed.
But when th mother, who knew
nothing of her son's arrest and never
thought of connecting him with the
murder, was seen by the detectives she
swore in the most solemn way that she
d seen nothing of her son. The ex
planation now given of her act was
that she supposed he had absented him
self from barracks without leave, and
as the penalty for harboring a deserter
was unusually severe she had lwcn
afraid to confess that her son had spent
the night at home.
When the significance of her testl-
money was made plant to her, she was
horrified, but she could not revoke her
sworn statement, and on the strength
of it Voisin, his alibi destroy and sev
eral other fragments of clc .nstantlal
evidence urged against !. ., was de
clared guilty and seutemi.-d to death.
He was to be shot xat Item es by n
squad of his. own comr-'ues. aud the
meniliors of the firing p.rtv -even had
been summoned when a repi ve, signed
by the president of t lie republic, arrived
in the njek of time to save his life. He
was sentenced to penal servitude and.
still declaring that he wan "Innocent,
was hurried off to endure the miseries
of existence at Cayenne.
By n queer combination of events
Langlois, the sergeant who had at flrst
been suspected of tbe murder of Mme.
Adam, soon after was convicted of
crime aud seut to the convict settle
ment on the island of Re. -
Voisin hardly had tasted the terrors
of life at Cayenuo when he determine!
to escape. Hundreds before him, he
knew, had attempted, to do the same
and had perished miserably, but he pre
ferred to share their fate rather than
drag out his life as a convict. Three of
his comrades were of his mind. One
day they eluded their guards, stole a
boat and put to sea la it. They had no
oars, but managed to make headway
by using their shirts as sails.
Thy were dging famously wnen a
gale came down on them. Their boat
was upset in a part of the sea where
sharks abound, and, though Voisin
and one of his taates managed to clam
ber on the overturned boat in shfety,
they had to Bee their two companions
killed and eaten. They had given up
hope of coming safely out of their dan
ger when Jhey were picked up by a ca
noe filled with dark skinned natives.
Then they supposed that they were
safe, but they soon discovered their
mistake. A reward had been offered
for their capture. The blacks who had
found them had been out in the hope
of doing that exact thing, and soon
after they delivered Voisin and his
chum Into the hands of the French
As n "dangerous" prisoner Volsin's
lot at Cayenne became even worse
than before. He was condemned to
double chains for years. Other men
were enduring the same punishment,
and one of them was a convict named
Jamioux. The two men got to be
friends, and one day Voisin told Jami
oux his name and former home.
"Why," cried his comrade, "then It
must be you who was condemned for
the murder of the woman Adam."
"Yes," said Voisin; "it Is I."
-"But you are innocent," cried Jami
oux. "I know it, for the murderer con
fessed the crime to me. It was a man
named Ijinglois, an ex-sergeant. Who
was with me at the Island of Re."
Voisin, Jubilant, made Jamioux re
peat what he had said to the governor
of Cayenne. The official reiwrted It tq
the French government, and the gov
ernment investigated. For three years
the inquiry dragged along, but came'to
a dramatic end when the discovery
was made that on his deathbed Lan
glois had confessed that he had mur
dered Mme. Adam. Then Voisin was
Remarkable Surgical .
Operation at Sea
The following remarkable story of a
difficult surgical operation performed
by n man wholly unskilled in such
work Is related by Frank T. Bullen in
"The Men of the Merchant Service."
It is the more remarkable because of
Its complete success.
During a whale hunt a line kinked
and dragged a man entangled by one
arm and one leg deep under the sea.
He was released by the imprisoned
members giving way under the fright
ful strain. Risiug to the surface and
floating there unconscious, he was
picked up aud taken on board the ship.
There it was found that a ixntion of
the hand, including four fingers, had
been torn away.

was not the
man to allow
any one to perish without a great effort
to save him. He had a carving knife, a
handsaw and a fishhook. Theinjury was
so great aud the poor fellow's cries so
heartrending that several of the crew
fainted while attempting to help the
skipper, and others became sick. So,
unaided, the skipper lashed his patient
o the carpenter's bench, cut off what,.
remained of the leg and dressed the
mangled hand; then, making for the
Sandwich Islands, be put the man in
hospital, where he recovered and, re
turning to America, passed the rest of
his days In comfort as a small shop
keeper. Tbe Se Serpent Hon.
What proved for a time to lie the
l most successful sea serpent hoax ou
record was perpetrated by Dr. Albert

exhibited In Broadway, New York, a
large skeleton of a fossil animal which
he had named hydrarchos, or sea
king. The remains consistM of a head
and vertebral column measuring 114
feet. After they had excited the peo
ple of this country for some time a
I'rofessor Wyman examined them and
discovered that they represented the
bones of several Keuglodons strung to
gether. Koch later sold the skeleton
to the museum of Dresden.
Foolish Fears of Brave iHen.
nistory is full of striking instances
hi which persons of acknowledged
mental superiority have bowed In ab
ject terror before some trifling or un
reasonable object, not always Intrinsic
ally unpleasant, as the famous queen
who fainted upon touching velvet ar.d
the violets which so invariably discon
certed Talleyrand. Of President Lla
coli It Is said that as a boy he actually
feared to lift a tpy wiggling new

Mary Button, a
adventure of Mrs.
years old, who wandered five weeks in
the Black forest of Pennsylvania, with
only roots aud berries to cat, is unpar
alleled in modern history.
One day in August Mrs. Button left
the home of her sou Johu In Haney
ville, Clinton county, Pa., to' pay a
visit to her other son, Charles, who
lives at Hector, In the same county,
thirty-five miles away.
She began her journey early in the
morning, and that night found her. at
the lumber camp of Ben Herritt, In
the Black forest, above Slate run. She

hair was a tangled and matted mass.
Her clothing was in tatters. She
seemed, in fact, more like a corpse
than a living creature. She was taken
home and by careful nursing gradually
restored to a semblance of her former

the old lady said:
"Some days I got so lonesome that I
would just sit on a log and try to twit

could catch one to keep near me it
wouldn't be so bad.
"But one day everything sort of be

dreadful, dreadful, but the horror of It
recalled me to my senses, for I knew
that I had crawled Into. a nest of hiss
