Peculiarities of Gallic Crime.

Tho Fr.-mli, eniiccially tho Parisian French,
are nothing if n.-t theatrical. One of their
own writers has told ns that while Jacques
nonhommo itho French peasant) Is ordinarily
the nuwt Innocent and pond nnttireil of bu
mlio, jet if he turns criminal, h turns mon
it the vimo time. Ilurnl crimes are rare
In Krnnoe, but in no other country are they
digutinly brutal The vieesof English,
BaTaMM inn I Americans seem nearly always
to be an excess of nature; the vice of the
French )ensaiit nearly always haa in it some
thing MbbM nature.
"Bluebennl" was a Frenchman that Is to
say, tbe utterly inhuman wretch on whose
rnrcHT tlie p.ptiliir st.irv is be.sed, was a
Frenchman of good estate wjo murdered
clrls for a pastime. His chateau was in a
nitber lonely country place in France, and to
It girls ware lured by every sort of device,
sou as chambermaids or nurse girls many
were actually kid knapped and once witbin
it gloomy walls in those old cruel times, it
waa easy to dispose of them, lie was de
tected at Inst, however, condemned and
"broken on the wheel," which U about the
untie its beinir pounded to death with a club.
The exact truth was never known, but from
the data obtainable, the local authorities es
timated tliat he hal murdered 2tf) young
women and girla.
MKASl'RIJtr, MLI-E. BOMPARO.
The most infamous poisoner, perhaps, that
ever lived was a beautiful, talented and ti
tled Frenchwoman Marie Marguerite D'Au
brny, mnrchioness of MrinTiiliers. She won
all hearts and poisoned many of those who
loved her. The patients in a great hospital,
of wln.-h she was patroness, blessed and
nstoi her, saying they were bettered even
by her presence in the sick wards, yet aha
w- then experimenting upon th.'m to
t.-t the efficacy of some new poisons and see
if science could, after death, trace tbe crime.
To get money for her paramour, a soldier
and adventurer, Oauilin de Sainte-Croix,
and to 1. free from espionage, she poisoned
her father, hifband, brother and other rela
tives. Detection came by the merest acci
denther lover was himself poisoned while
Ignorantly handling the chemicals and she,
after confession, was "broken on the wheel."
Tbe " Whttechapel fiend" is spoken of as an
uni recedented villain, yet Frans Philippe,
Fans drug clerk, a "nice young man," well
nnected and In
g'xxl society, mur
dered eighteen girls
class, tils intended
while looking In tbe
glass, snw reflected
In it the image of
Philippe slipping a
rasor under the pil
low; she made an
excuse to retire a
moment and called
the police. He con
fessed all, hut could

M FtMN to tot atrocities eave that at
certain tin nn intense longing seised him to
slice the fair flesh and see the warm blood
flow, "itreaklng on the wheel" h.ul then
long been abollhed for this was but a gen
eration mce -ami Philippe was guillotined.
"Kr. n. hy" also is the last Paris
trage.lv. MM Ml specially brutal and not
without n motive namely, the murder by
strangiil.it ion of M. flouffe, a prooess server,
as it is call, si in France a calling which
often nn 1 'h-es the collection of large suras of
moni'v The murderer, Kyraud, is now in
VtMrtcaj if Mi hsta nii-ttresH, Oaorlslle Bom
pard, Mh the truth And she U really the
central tlgiirn. Her youth, heauty, vivacity
and. one may add, her courage in returning
to Franrsi and giving full iletails, are made
much of In HM French papers. That a man
of means should intriguu with another man's
mistrees Is no new thing; and that ho should
thereby lie induced to go where he could bo
robbed and even murder.il. is not unheard
of. Rut the systematic planning, tbe awful
deliberation of this crime make It singular;
and the mystery was so great that the police
are not even yet satisfied that they have
cleared it up.
Now tbe order In which the facta came to
light was this: First, Oouffe was missed, and
wbou his friends sought bis apartments they
learned from the
doorkeeper of the
l-rflK'o. i'ding that
an unknown man
had come with
Oouffo's keys, open
ed and ransacked
his room and takeu
value. This was last
Jnly, and for weeks
no morn was
known. Home $1.

money he was prov
ed to have collect

Near Lyons end a long ways from Paris a
corpse was found In a ditch, but so decayed
Meat i "cognition was impossible. A broken
trunk was next found, as In tbe Cronin case,
and after long inquiry tbe porter of tbe Hotel
de Bordeaux at Lyons Identified it as the
trunk taken from that hotel last July "by a
nan of respectable appearance traveling
with a young lady registered as his nieoe."
A liveryman In Lyons remembered having
lata cabriolet that day tosuch a man. The
trunk was exhibited to dealers In that line in
Paris, ami they said It was of English make.
- It was sent to London and identified by a
dealer who sold it to "a French gentleman
who was traveling with hie niece. " Three
deerript nan- were) now obtained. They agreed
fully, and at last the two mysterious oom
woreadjialged to be Kyraud and OabrieJle
BoinparU. Eyraud's wlfj was questioned njj
tald her husband had "fled In July to avdI3
his creditors." His history and that of
Oabrielle were rapidly searched out, but it
was soon proved that they were neither in
England nor France.
Wonderful acuteneas of the French de
tectives I But they were apparently baffled,
for no trace of the fugitives could be foanfl.
The bones of the corpse had, however, been
carefully inspected, and a surgeon identiied
them as Oouffe's, for whom ho had perforated
an operation, and had before that reduced a
fracture of tbe shin bone; and there the mys
tery remained for months. But early inVeb
ruary Prefect of Police Lore was surprised
one morning by a request for an interview.
Tbe party soon stood before him, and it was

She had come all the way from San Fran
cisco to tell her story and it was quickly told.
Kyraud bad installed ber in secluded rooms
In tbe street Troncon-Ducoudray, and in
structed ber to en
courage tbe atten
tions of M. Oouffe.
On the fatal day
the victim was re
clining in an inner
room when E y -raud,
tv ho was
noted for his mu
cle and grip, en
tered nnd quickly
strangled him. He
then licked ber in

corpse was then
Backed in a trunk
and they bxk the train for Marseilles, but
left It at Lyons ami disposed of corps ami
trunk as related. There were a few move
ments to mystify the Mata und then tho
flight to America, tiabrielle d. dared she
bad not knuu that murder was intended, hut
went with the murderer because she fcured
to do anythiug else.
They visited many places in America. She
reproached him for his crime nnd he treated
her with tieti lish i rin liy. In San IfcMeJMS
she took refuge with a French gentleman and
confessed all. He urg'-d her immediate re
turn to Paris and furnished the means and
there she was. She was nrrested, a minute
description of her taken and a thorough ex
amination recorded. She is the daughter of
a respectable and well to do merchant nr.
Lille, .! years old, a brunette, strikingly
handsome, graceful and clever. The ascen
dancy Kyraud hail gained over her is com
pared by tho French physicians to that al
leged of complete hypnotism. As far as the
police can go her story has been iilentilM in
every detail. But tho strangling murderer
is still at large in America and his where

An exchange says:
There is a certain class of boys about
every town and city who apparently do
nothing but loaf, smoke cigars and cigar
ettes, and are neither a help to their par
ents nor an ornament to society. Nine
teuths of tbe convicta in the penitentia
ries were street-loafing night hawks when
they were boys and preferred to get a
living in some other way than by honest
labor and tbe sweat of their brow. Too
many boys are growing up to idleness and
letting golden opportunities pass by un
heeded. Tour boyhood days are rapidly
passing by and you will soon be called
upon to take up the cares and responsi
bilities of manhood. Boys, there is a
future before you. If life is worth liv
ing it is worth living right. Get an edu
cation, learn a trade, quit loafing, and try
and make a man of yourself.

"Where, papa?" "Why, May, he's every

Today's Chicago Inter-Oetan has the
following interesting tele ram from
Springfield concerning the Modern Wood
men litigation and which shows that
Head Consul Root has not c me out of
tbe injunction proceedings with such fly
ing colors as has been represented. He
is not out of the woods yet b any means:
Tbe telegraphic item in tbe Inter Ocean
and other papers of the 8th sent from
Morrison. III., in relation to the court
proceedings so far as they Mate to the
Modern Woodmen of Americt is incor
rect. Tbe injunction was ststainedand
made permanent by Judge Brown in so
far as an injunction could go continuing
tbe restraining order as to books, re
cords, papers, etc.. but ruled that a court
in equity bad no jurisdiction o try a case
as to the tenure of office. It e manage
ment having attempted to '-ensure the
bead physician last October, and the
question a to that office was not decided
or acted on at all. In tbe rise of the
state auditor and Attorney 0-neral Hunt
against the management the c iurt refused
to appoint a trustee as asked for by the
state pending the court procedings. but
ruled the defendants to answer in forty
days from Feb. 5, overruling their de
murrer to the attorney genen.l's bill of
information. The defendant i attorneys
on filing their demurrer argt ed that tbe
Modern Woodmen being a se ret society
the state had nc jurisdiction over it. The
court held that ihe Modern Woodmen
was an insurance organization and its
managers amenable to the ins irance laws
of the state. This decision is of much in.
terest to all socieiies and the public. The
attorney general's bill is s ccitie and
direct in its charges, as the f llowing ex
tract shows :
"That the secretary wrong 'ully issued
and numbered certificates; hat J. C
Root, head consul, wrongful y withheld
large sums of money that fhould have
been paid to the treasurer; 'hat he bad
four pages cut out of the casl book; that
he collected txorbitant price, from local
camps; tbat be allowed a fraudulent
claim of $3,000, and that tbe funds were
appropriated to their own ust ; that J. C
Root and F. C- Brayton (then head clerk)
caused to be filed in the sti te auditor's
office an affidavit tbat there was no in
debtedness against the corporation on
Dec. 1. 1889. when there was 110,000 in
debtedness over and above it.' contingent
mortuary liabilities, and was then known
to them: that on the 5th day of Novem
ber, 1889, the president had n his hands
unaccounted for the sum of $3,824. and
other sums unknown; that I. C Root
made false charges against tbe associa
tion, and charged having paid the secre
tary, on March 81, 1889, the sum of $1,
031.86. when it had not been done; that
be wrongfully paid claims igainst the
association and caused intt rest to be
paid by tbe association."

Mhorklnc Fate of a Davenport Boiler
Maker a the Keanlt of Too Free
Use or the Fiery Ft ntrt
Henry Kerwin, a Davenport boiler
maker aged forty years, was found yes
terday afternoon in an old rickety two
story frame house near the corner of Iowa
and Front streets, that city. The man
was lying on the stairs on his back with
bis head almost doubled under him. For
some time he had been employed as
boiler maker in the foundry of Grupe &
Murray. About two weeks ago, the Dem
oerat says, he sustained the fracture of a
rib by fall and had not been working
since. His wife died some time ago, and
bis son, a reckless and unruly boy, was
sent to the reform school a few months
after. Kerwin was the sole occupant oPj
the house. Ho had been living there
about six months, but occupied only
the two little rooms up stairs. One
room was bis sleeping apartments and
tbe other contained a stove, table and ooe
or two chairs. This room was used by
hitn as a kitchen. He was a heavy liquor
drinker and was last seen on the stree's
Saturday afternoon. It is believed tbat
be got drunk Saturday night, and after be
went to his bouse, had locked the door
and reached the top of the stairs, when
he fell backward and broke his neck.
A few of his friends who had faihd to
see him Sunday or yesterday during ihe
forenoon, concluded to go to his house in
tbe afternoon and see if he was tin re.
Tbe door was locked, so they climbed
upon the porch to look into the room
above, but no one was there. A Utile
boy standing on tbe sidewalk pulled out
the paper stuffed in a broken pane in one
of the windows and discoyered Kerwin
dead on the stairs.
