IS NEEDLE TO POLE.
THE STORY OF A FAIR GEORGIA KLEP
TOMANIAC.
Feaitentiary or the Asylum-To One of
these Unfortunate Young Woman Will
Be Sent.
[The State.)
Augusta, Ga.-A mystery that
outrivals the yellowest of the metro
politan puzzles is one in which the
Georgia seaport city, Savannah, is
puzzled to understand, in which a
pretty girl of some 19 years has won
the soubriquet of the "Queen of
Diamonds," from the fact that she
seems to be possessed of a klepto
mania, and only on the subject of
this most valuable jewel.
Haughty of manner, in the bright
est possible of moods and gay of
speecb, with absolutely no thought
of the immensity of the crime with
which she is charged, except for an
occasional expression of doubtful
sorrow at the fact that she has been
captured and her name placed be
fore the public in the manner it has,
Mamie deChrist occupies a lonely
cell in ' the Chatham county jail.
She receives occasionally a visitor
from among the set with wbich she
used to mingle and rehearses the
story of misdeeds that would make
the strongest man blush with shame.
Today she is confronted by one of
two dark propositions either of
which will blight what might have
been a bright future had she chosen
to make it such. She sees either the
* prodpect of a long term in the State
prison or a life in the mad house.
The qupstion as to which institution
she shonld. properly be sent by the
authorities will be in a measure de
* cided by a jury of pbysicians which
* will examine into the condition of
* her anind on a writ of lunacy sworn
out before the county ordinary by
* her motbers
-Fro* 7pst experiences it is plain
that shlould the woman make two ap
pearn sbefore this jury and mnake
a statignkesch time, they will be
as widely different as the waters of
the Dead sea and the nectar of the
gods. S&arcely in a degree will tbe
first story ore with that of the sec
ond statement. Time and time again
* see has made-a-most positive state
ment; earnest in the extreme one
day, but denied with an equal ear
nestness the day following.
The arrest of Miss deChrist in At
lanta last week was of a most sensa
tionaL mature and has continually
since4mie kept Savannah agog with
tbs excitement of wonder impelled
by wondering what next, and the
entire State illed with interest as to
the possibility of an unexpected
turn in the case. New York in all
its history has never produced a
drama of a more startling nature
than the exploit of Mamie deChrist
last July, and the connecting subse
e quent vsenta, when-she appeared re
peatedly at the jewelry stores of
Theus Bros. and A. S. Desbullions
and succeeded in robbing them by a
most marvelous nerve of watches of
high value, diamond brooches and
rings of various prices. .Imagiga
tion does not picture a cooler scene,
which was her salvation, throughout
her transactions, than the stylishly
dressed, pretty, petite brunette who
enters the jewelry stores with an air
that fitted to a nicety with the sto
ries which the told. "At the'store 'of
Theus lios. she wase Miss Willhams,
the nick of Mr. 1. P. Williams, a
Savannah millionaire, and at the
other establishment she was Miss
Bian, a. niece of Capt. Henry Blun,
president of the Germania bank
At the one place she presented a
note scribbled on society stationery
-from Mrs. Williams asking that she
be shown a lot of jewelry from which
to choose pieces to be taken to Mrs.
Williamis that she herself might make
belectioi.s, and at the other she dis
played a similar note purporting to
be fro-: the wife of the wealthy bank-'
er. At' neither store could the jew
elers do enough for the relative of,.
either of those ladies and really in
sisted on her taking more baubles
than she had chosen from the cases.
They were sorry when this smooth
female whom they had never seen
before and whose identity '!.as as
vague to them as that of a foreigner
except for the pencilled note, when
she would not take more than $2,000
S worth of jewele, and that they did
not have more valuable trinkets for
her to bear away to her imaginary
aunts.
Young Desboullions asked when
the woman left who she was and was
told she was Miss Williants. Then
it dawned upon him that there was
no such person and a search was in
stituted, but the woman was not
found As a matter of fact she was
living in a flat on the same block
where her victims dii businiss tbe
whole time.
A craze for having her name ap
pear in print was her undoing. She
went to Atlanta and stopped at the.
Kimball house. For the purpose of
letting her friends see that she was
being received by the top of society
she wrote a story to the Savannah
Morning News telling all about a
swell wedding i t which she was
present as an attendant. To make
the story more graphic she told of a
pair of horses running away hitched
to a carriage in which were two at
tendants, the names used being the
most prominent families in the State,
and the couple being killed. The
whole story was filled with well !
known Georgia names, but with
strange initials, the signature to the
story being "Mrs. G. W. Williams."
The affair was investigated and
found by the authorities to be en
tirely imaginary, the dramatis per
sonae being without existence.
On reading the story the solicitor
general deducted that Miss deChrist
was the "Diamond Queen," by com
parison of the writing in the letter
to The News and the note left at the
jewelry store. She was arrested in
Atlanta and confessed. She was ta
ken back to Savannab, where she
told endless conflicting stories which
led to the popular opinion that she
was insane and caused the issuing of
a writ of lunacy at the instigation of
her mother.
Mamie deChrist was born of hum
ble parentage in that part of Sa
vannah known as Thunderbolt, but
now she deniies her mother. The
question as to her sanity will be de
dided either this afternoon or to
morrow arnd on this decision hangs
her future life-in prison as a crimi
nal or the mad house as a maniac.

The art features of The 1)euigner
for January, 1903, are effective to a
iarked degree, and are typical of
the progressiveness of this popular
publication, which is always the her
ad of up.to date fashions and inter
ests essentially feminine. Edited by
women, it caters especially to wo
manly tastes. Most charming and
original are the fancy costumes, and
stylish and seasonable are the nilli
nery designs, the latter being ac
companied by a practical article on
hat making. "In door Exercises for
Children," by Dr. Sarah A. French
Battey, and "Toilet Table Chat" are
of real hygienic value, and the de
partments of "What Women Are Do
ing" and "Helps Along the Way,"
both edited by the readers of The
Designer, are helpful and decidedly
novel. The literary features com
prise t wo short stories, "At Heron's
Crag," by Elizsbeth Roberts Mac
donal, and "Mr. Coyote," by L 0.
Lenart, "The Do'mestic Side of the
White House," by Waldoni Fawcett,
"The Feast of the Kings," by G.
W. Jacobs' and a parlor.comedy, "A
