wherein are collected the memorials and rel

Ghastly a ara hi surroundings, yet 1
fancy that that which most strike th
thoughtful visitor b tb terrible misuse of
great ability which is here so retiiarkabl;
evidenced by what is shown.
GREAT IDENTITY MISAPPLIED.
The police oflkvr will sliow (he ladder in
vented and usod by Mr. Charles Peace, whet
bound upon bis little night expeditions o'
depredation and burgling. To invent suet
an excee-lingly clever mechanical contriv
ance argued tha possetMioii on his part of end
lew engineering, cariieotcring and architect
ural capacity; to have been able to nse it, a
b, used it, proves him to have been capablt
of an acrobatic agility which would, in a
very literal sense, bare placed him at the
very bead of a performing troupe of aero
bata, but which talent, employed as he em
ployed it, landed him only at last upon the
"bad eminence," whereon stood the gallows
upon which he met hi hideous fate. And
that Iefi-ny taleuts were of no mean na
ture, despicable ami brutal an was bis crime,
is distinctly evidenced by the letter he wrote
to a friend, wherein. In well set phrasm, and
in a clear, bolL and not in the loast in a vul
gar handwriting, he congratulates him upon
the admirable manner in which ha had acted
the part of Mother Huhluird In a pantomime
which the poor wretch had writteu and pro
duced in some hall in the suburbs of London.
Brutal a was bis crime, contemptible as was
his cowardice which he evinced when brought
face to face with his terrible but well merit
d fate, yet, as I read the letter, written in
brighter and happier days, I could but say to
'Ob. the pity of it! Ob, the pity of it!"
And then take that little dark lantern Into
your hand and study carefully the extremely
able and delicate mauner in which it has
been constructed, and you will say that tha
man who could so cleverly convert an ordi
nary Bryant and May match box into such
an admirable bull's ere lantern was surely
capable of a higher and better walk In life
than that pursued by the nine "common or
garden" burglar. Half the Ingenuity, half
tha energy, half the trouble and worse than
wasted time would have made that man a
wealthy and respectable member of society,
and yet the path illumined by the light from
that cleverly contrived little lantern has only
sufficed to lead him to a prison herein for
year he must labor at the most degrading
and unprofitable work that it is possible to
Very ghastly and very horrible, but till
with a fearful interest all their own, are some
of the relics that lie scattered about in rich
confusion. Li-atUs coat and the petticoat of
his victim, both saturated and burned with
that terrible fluid which he poured down her
throat are there, a also Is the very bottle of
death itself, ugh! how one shudder a one
looks. And there is a murderer'sdlary, writ
ten In prison, and which contains advice to
those about to marry, similar to but even
more forcibly expressed than in Punch's cele
brated dictum, "Don't." For It was a wo
man who had brought him to his horrid end,
at least so be says.
On the shelf beside it in the cast of a mur

Why, no lem a person than the public hang

and the craven fear be exhibited wbeu he,
the callous brute who had so cheerfully put
so many to death, was himself led out at but
to face the grisly foe. Aud then the guide
put iuto your hand the pistol with which
O'lkmnell shot Carey, the Irtjj informer,
and there is also the very bullet which was
extracted from the tatter's body after death.
"Look at this piece of skin, sir," said my
kind and courteous guide, putting iuto my
hand a small but very substantial piece of
black leather; "that is part of Bellinghani's
skin, the man who shot Mr. Percival in the
lobby .if the house of commons." A very
pretty Japanese dagger greatly fascinated
me it was so dainty, so beuutifully de
signed, so entirely suited for the adornment
of an esthetic West End drawing room. But
it history is a sad one, for with it a sailor
had stabbed to the heart a girl who loved
and trusted hi in. And oh! how touching are
the ralics of these poor female victims, many
of tbein of a terribly low and degraded chv.
In at least thru Instances I saw well thumlied
hymn books and prryer books in which were
scribbled all over the names of the poor dead
and gone creatures, and In one Instance even
the name of the wretch who had taken her
sunless, wretched life away. In that ghastly
album of photographs I saw much that was
of deepest interest, when one took into ac
count the . dreadful notoriety which was
attached to each celebrated picture.
Tlchborne's portrait, taken three rears acn
depicted a very thin, pale faced bearded man.
Itn not a single particle of likeness to the
Jovial and corpulent "nobluman'' who disap

"Come," I said to my friuud, "let us get out
of this," aud, with a gasp of relief, we praug
out of the gloomy chumljer of siu and death,
and out Into tha sweet ind swept street,
wherein the rain had ceased to fall, and upon
which God's sun was shining once again, and
all was life and hope and joy, and the Black

I suppose every barber, at some time iu hi
life, tries his hand on a remedy for baldness.
I have, and I've made a failure of all my
tonics. 1 don't laslleve that there is anything
iu the world that will put back lost hair on a
man's bead. But I can tell the man who is
anxious about the hair he has bow to keep It
on his head. He must stop eating greasy
food and confine himself to a diet v.ith very
little fat In it. if lie does that his hair will
not only not fall out, but it will return if he
loses it by illness. A different rule seems to
