extensive gardens which surrounded

he was on tho ho point of relating to m me tnt
the peculiar circumstances cl1cum tances connects

whom we wehlld had met and who had

At that moment the sharp report report
Of a pistol rang out in the still morn <

I grasped the arm of my host anc an md
What Is that Surely some om one
of your patients atlentn Is doing mischief
Dr Noirot smiled
No said he be composed It i Is Is
merely another singular case which I I
will show you
Diverging IHverglngto to the left eft ho drew mi me
toward a small pavilion hidden behind
a cluster of trees Ho opened a door
and after proceeding along a nnrrov
vestibule we reached a sort of Ion long
court surrounded by high brick walls
A man was there tall of stature ant and
clothed In the costume of a hunter
resembling in certain details the the
habit of the Mexican cattle herder
He was reclining against one of thi the
walls of the pavilion p vmon and at the mo
ment of our arrival raised slowly slo wly the
right hand In which was firmly
grasped a pistol Our arrival dis
turbed him not I followed the dI
rection of the weapon and I saw ai at
about fifteen paces a white head with
a black hole in the centre of the
forehead It was as far as I was able
to judge at that distance a mask of
plaster 1aster of paris skillfully altlll ullr executed ex cuted
and In which I seemed to be able to
distinguish a resemblance to Diana
the huntress
The shot was discharged The head
remained intact
See See said the doctor It is most
remarkable he never misses a shot
Is Isit it possible said I half In ¬
Yes all the balls are lodged In the
same place placeIn In that dark spot not
larger than an Inch and a half in di ¬

The mt m an in had drawn another pis pistol tol

some Bomerevolver revolver charged with several everai
shots The Th marksman discharged
successively euccesslvelyfive five other shots none of
which damaged the figure
The doctor placed his hand upon
the shoulder o of the marksman who
turning toward him revealed a face
adorned by a heavy black beard and
Upon upon u ion which reposed an air of deter ¬
mination and melancholy
I Stop a moment said the doctor
I I The man bowed assentlngly and
the doctor then conducted me to the
end of the court and behind the mask
and showed me a kind of blackened
iron plate which protected the wall
from being damaged by the bullets
In the centre of the plate I observed a
round spot which glistened brightly
from the effects of the lead which had
been battered in striking
You see s e said the doctor in
showing showll1 showll1me me the exact correspondence
of the brilliant spot and the hole
which passed through the plaster
head all balls have entered here
You will find this to be true in every
It is Indeed marvelous u replied
I But what of his strange history
Let us go I will relate it to you
We traversed again the court and
the the he vestibu vestibule le and this is the strange
recital of Dr Nolrot interrupted a at t
regular Intervals by the detonations
ot the mad marksmans revolver
That poor unfortunate Is called
Gujdo Gudo Ventura Vent ra Whether Italian
Spanish or American Is not certainly
known American I should say for
It is from the the United States these i
masters of the rifle and revolver
come It was from there he came to
France You could have seen him I
last season at the Alcazar UAutomno
where he had given four fo ur or five exhi ¬
bitions of dexterity d xterity and would have
performed elsewhere had not impera ¬
tive reasons terminated abruptly his
Guldo Ventura when he arrived at
Paris was accompanied by a young
lady known professionally as Made ¬
moiselle Arabelle She was a mag ¬
nificent creature with the form of a L
statue and the head of a goddess She
lacked not adorers and In less than thana a L
week it became quite the fashion to
seethe superb Arabelle assist Ventura L
in his tIs wonderful performances
She performed splendidly the arms
crossed the taco Immovable while at
fifteen paces Ventura leveled his 1 pis ls ¬
tol the bullets from which invariably
pierced a card held between the
fingers or broke the stem of a com ¬
mon clay pipe held between her I
Snowy snowy teeth and within a few few inches S
of her lips The crowning feat was s
the breaking of a small glass ball 1
placed upon her head
A A single tremor oflho hand of f
Ventura and andbut andhiuttlie but the hand ol Ven ¬
tura never trembled
Evidently Ventura loved this splen ¬
did woman with a love approaching
Idolatry It It sufficed to prove this to
see once the fierce fires w which hich flashed d
in his eyes when in the green gre m room rooml I II l

lives nearly every year England and
Belgium have had few casnalltles
from this tource ro rce owing to extreme
precautions although Belgian mines
are notorious for th the thepresence presence of fire ¬

England there th ro are a number num ber of per

after such an accident rescuers could

which is used in European coal ¬

With this apparatus a man could
enter a mine Immediately after the
explosion and begin rescue work The
firedamp and poisonous vapors do
not Immediately suffocate and if the
the miners could be brought lo o the
surface at once they would be saved
Besides having these devices ready read
at the mouths of the mines for thc thq th j
use of miners the Belgian author nutholri
ties require that mineowners carr carrYj
a a sufficient supply of them in deel I

could thus penetrate deep tunnels
and ane laffix affix an apparatus appar tus to the head of

Mine explosions have been reduced
In number and seriousness in Belgium
by the compulsory use of standard d
miners lamps which are tested by
government experts Many of the so
called safety lamps used by miners
have been found inadequate Under
severe tests In the thegovernm9Jlt governmejit exper ¬
iment stations they have leaked suf ¬
ficiently ftclentl to ignite firedamp and coal
dust Another point which the ex ¬
perimental p erimental tests have developed is
that that more explosions are due to coal
dust than to tc firedamp f1re damp The care
less use of explosives by the miners
themselves is a common cause of ei
plosions and caveIn ca ie lnaccldents accidents The

The President and the Magazines
Talking with more than bnp uip visitor
the President expressed himself very
freely on the ubject of the theattltudo attitude
of the magazines magazln s and newspapers
Mr Taftdoes not accept this criticism
as sincerely mode He attributes the
antagonism of tho magazine writers
chleflyto the demand for muckrake
copy He feels it the more morekeenly keenly
because because the magazines arc the re reo ¬
c ipients of what he calls a subsidy
I from thePostoffice the Postofflce ostoiflce Department It
appears ap pears to him gross ingratitude for
the periodical press to attack the
Government which annually con ¬
tributes millions of dollars to its it sup
port Conscious of the rectitude of
his purposes ho finds It Impossible to
understand undor nderstandhow itand how persons so well In ¬
formed formedas as are the political writers for
the themagazines magazines and the correspondents
of the dally papers can Impugn his
motives or give to political news the
representations which ho reads in the
press pressWlIllanl William Bayard Hale in

Dante as a Sorcerer
A correspondent of o f ftho the Times sends
a curiously Interesting paper on
Dante as a Sorcerer based on the
recently published documentary doc umentary rec ¬
ords of the processes Instituted at
Avignon by Pope John XXII XXIIagalnstl against
Matteo Visconti and his son Galeazzo
of Milan The Visconti were charged
with having resorted to witchcraft
In order to injure the Pope and Bar
tolomeo to omeo Canholati the chief witness wItness
against them dec de c1 lared that that in an In ¬
terview with withaGaheazzo Galeazzo the latter stated
that ho had conferred with Dante
The evidence which is in Latin
makes m t ltes no definite charga against
Dante All that Canholati alleges Is
that Galeazzo had caused Dante to
come come to him on this business and the
general impression of his evidence is
that Dante had an uncanny reputa ¬
tion for some people and that Gale ¬
azzo may have av hoped that he would wbul
consent to exert his inaleflclent pow ¬
ers against again at a man whom ho Gale ¬
azzo hated The particular r rmethod method
resorted to in this case case was the sub
fumigation of an Imagu Imng so that as
the Imago was consumed with heat
so would tho person be consumed
against whom the tholn1ago image imagswas was madel ma de1
and we have havaDante Dantes s sown own testimony
In the Purgatorlo XXV 23 that th t
he believed in the efficacy of that
