to have been laid ia the eofi-ti with her.
The thought of all this waste of wealth
clung to bis mind, and Siubciiraach re
solved to enter the mausoleum and rob the
mil aking into a tomu.
The position of the vault, far removed and
concealed from the palace, aifed his plans,
and he made little accouut of locks and
bars, which were likely to prove small hia
derances to an accomplished locksmith.
To carry his plan into execution 1 e re
solved on choosing the night of An;;. 1S
19, 1S32. On this evening he sat drir.kintr.
iu a low tavern till ID o'clock, when he left,
returned to his lodr: tit's, v,di;r;? he collected
the tools he believed he would require, a
caudle ami flint and steel, and then betook
himself to the itirunolviitu. The tomb was
closed by an iron t;ate formed of strong
bars eit;!.t feet hiyls, radi.-'.tiu. from a cen
ter in a sort of semicircle and armed with
He found it impossible to open the lock,
and he was therefore obliged to climb over
the i;a:o. rejtardles of the danger of tear
ing himself o:i the barbs. Here he found
a double stout oaken door in the floor i.hat
gave access to the vault. The two valves
were so closely dovetailed into one anoufaer
and fitted so exactly that he found the
utmost difficulty in fc-ettinga tool between
them. He tried his false keys in vain on
the lock, and for a long time ids efforts to
prise the lock open with a lever wereeqiial
ly futile. At length by mean-, of a we lge
he succeeded in breaking away through
the junction of the doors i:iM which he
could insert a bar, and then he heaved nt
one valve with all Lis might, throwing his
weight on the lever.
It took him f::i:yau hour before he could
break open the door. Midnight struck as
the valve, gratiagon its hinges, was thro'vu
back. Then, leaning over the opening,
holding a pole hi buth hands, he endeav
ored to feel the depth of the vault. In so
doing he lost his balance and tiie weight of
the pole dragged him down, and lie fell le
tween two coliius (some twelve feet below
the floor of the upper chamber. There he
lay for some little while unconsciot.s,
stunned by his fall. When he came to
himself he sat up, felt a!iout with his hands
to ascertain where he was. and ousidercd
what next should be doi.e
IN a ti;ai
Ktiil.enrauch was not. the man to fed
either re.-;pr-ct for the dead or fear oi" aual.t
supernatural. With both bauds he 8iu
tained the heavy lid of the coiiiu as l.e
i.-eered in, and the necessity for using both
to support the weight prevented his pro
fane baud from being laid on the remains
of an august and pious princess. Stubet
rauch did indeed try more than once t
sustain the lid with one hand that hf
might grope with the other for the treas
ures he fancied must be cuuealed there,
but the moment he removed one hand the
lid crashed down.
Ihsappointed in his expectations, Stu
benrauch now replaced the cover and be
Stan to consider how he might escape. But
now, and now only, did li discover that it
was not possible for him to get out of the
vault into which he had fallen. The pole
on which he had placed his confidence was
too short to reach the opening above.
Every effort made by Stubenrauch to
scramble out failed. He was caught in a
traji and what a trap! Nemesis had fallen
i the ruffian at once on the .scene of his
crime and condemned him to betray him
self. Morning broke. It was .Suaday, and a
special festival at C'oburg, for it was the
twenty-fifth anniversary of the accession
of the duke, so that the town was in lively
commotion, and park and palace were also
in a stir. Stubenrauch sat up and waited
in hopes of hearing tomc one draw near
who could release him. About 0 o'clock in
the morning he beard steps on the gravel
and at once legan to shout for assistance.
The person who bad .-pproached ran
away in alarm, declaring that strange ana
unearthly noises issued from the ducal
mausoleum. The guard was apprised, but
would not at first believe the report. At
length one of the sentinels was dispatched
to the spot, and lie returned speedily with
the tidings that there certainly was a man
in the vault, lie had peered through the
grating at the entrance, a ad had seen the
door broken open and a crowbar and other
articles lying about. The gate was now
opened, and Stubeurauch removed in the
midst of an assembled crowd of angry and
dismayed spectators. He was removed to
prison", tried and condemned to eighteen
months with hard labor. Caring-Gould's
