?, Suspect Tetanus Inoculation.
1, In both of these cases the authori
*e ties are proceeding on tae assumption
t, that in applying modern scientific
" methods to murder, the man may have
actually inoculated the women with
the germs of tetanus. They have the
s, testimony of two persons already in
it their possession that Carlton not only
d oftes spoke of germs, but apparently
h, had cultures of them in his apartments.
g A aotive for the murder easily proven,
r the police declare, would be found in

Inquiry from Chicago.
In addition to this there is the in
quiry of the Chicago police, asking for
more particulars about Carlton, de
claring that a Carl Horton, who ran a
matrimonial bureau at No. 155 Wash
ington street, that city, several years
ago, resembled Carlton's published pic
tures. That man was arrested, but was
acquitted and left town.
It-will oe seen easily that except for
the three crimes on which he now
stands charged and the one which
aiwaits the outcome of the chemit's
e analysis the testimony is not yet con
cusive. The police have not yet gath
s ered together all the strands of evi
dence, but in every allegation so far
f the cup of tea is found. St. Louis has
t sent word that Carlton is the young
i McCandless, of Polk county, who en

listed in the United States army at an
early age, deserted and. served two
years' imprisonment in Fort Leaven
worth, the military prison. It is there.
it is asserted, that he learned to cook.
e It is there, it is thought, he learned
to brew a cup of tea by pouring hot
water upon the tea leaves, upon which
. lay a slice of lemon. That is a com
mon enough way nowadays in cities
e and abroad, but it is not the way they
make tea in the country districts,
where the old-fashioned boiling or
ý steeping is still used. It was strange
a enough to have Helen Murray remem
r ber ,it of John E. Candless; for Jennie
Andrews, of South DaKota, to use that
as one of her means-of identification,
and for Lucia Mitchell, Mrs. Kettering,
Rose Cerier, Mrs. Kingrey, the Peter
son girl, the parents of Jennie Smyth
Carlton, and the mother and brother
of Mary Gorman, as well as the Mrs.
Hattie Schultz and her ilandmaster
husband in Sands street, Brooklyn,
where Carlton boarded, all of them re
fer to it.
Schaub, who has accused him of
grand larceny, alleges that he was of
fered tea to drink. Dr. Goldsmith has
sworn that the drug which De Martinez
administered to him to produce uncon
sciousness was in a cup of tea. The
McCandless of the army and the Carl
ton of the navy brewed the tea.
The foregoing is the arraignment by
the police. There is somnething to be
said for the man around whom so pow
erful a net is closing. Carlton himself
,can talk for himself and talk quietly,
intelligently and logically; that is,
where there dpes not intervene a date
or a place or a name he desires at this
time to withhold.
A Dangerous Man.
"He is a dangerous man to have
loose." is the way Inspectof Cross puts
it. "How many woman have, fallen a
prey to, his greed and viciousness it
would be hard to say. How he won the
clve and confidence of these women is
beyond comprehension. He is a man
.of.low, petty -practices, a man of the.
mannest type.. He fascinated innocent
women and they were as toys in his
Miss Marie Breslin, upon wh3m Carl
ton tried a unique scheme of blackmail
by means of an obnoxious photograph,
fell under Carlton's hypnotic eyve
"He asked me to mlarry him before
his second wife was dead," says this
pretty Brookly miss. "I was her
bridesmaid, "ant Ias -shocked when
he spoke to me. I felt myself under
'his terrible influelce. I haad" hardly
the strength to refuse him, but, thank
t God, I did. Then he told me he would
get me by foul means, and I don't know
I what might have -happeied if he had
not been arrested. I always hated him,
but his influence over a woman was so
strong that no one without a desperate
effort could get away from him."
Carlton's feverish anxiety for fem
inine love has not deserted him since
his incarcerstion at the Brooklyn- jafI.
Mrs. Vandsventer, who was hers6lf
thrust into. a cell when Anthony Com

And as to this, Inspector Cieos 3-s
he has occasion to believe that"the lv-w
i ing couple are already married.
"A Funny Mix-Up." t
"He tried to insure her life for $2,000
and they both swore 'they were inar
ried," says the inspector. "And her:
own brother-in-law told the insuranee
company, for which he was the agentt,
that they were married. kow, that'is
funny mix-up." -
Besides the various other strange e.n
terprises in which Carlton ha figured
as a promoter, it is darkly hinted by
the Brooklyn police that he hag been:
conducting on an extravagant"scale
matrimonial bureaus in different cities,
This, it is taken, is not entirely out of
his lime of work as a plotter after
hearts. Queer love codes, names of
women in many cities printed on slips,
and photographs-of many- more, were:
resurrected from his effects. All Carl
ton would say to this when the police
asked him about it was:
"Ah, go find out!"
In his checkered career Carlton has
posed as a physician, chemist, expert
photographer, priest, Presbyterisn main
ister, expert chef and owner of a Bray
zilian coffee plantation. He has boast
ed of his keen knowledge of medicine,
and has said he know how to cultivate
enough germs to supply the borough of
n Brooklyn for the rest of its natural
o life.
"GErms?" he said at one time. "Why,
they're easy! Anybody can get germs.
. Just dig 'em up."
I He didn't talk so volubly about
it germs when Inspector Cross, a few
hi days since, put him through the
a "Germs?" he repeated. "You'll havs
y to ask a bacteriologist about them
I, things.' J
r Carlton has maintained a marvelous
a bravado since his arrest. It is a char
- acteristic that is one of his strongest
e points. Nothing seems to ziettle him.
t and he affects a good humor at all
;, times that,, with a man under asch in.
tense cross-fire, is hard to understand.
Lack of nerve has never for a moment
ti led' him to a false step since hi asr

z ment of a thousand hells since he left
I "I never saw you," declared Carlton,
his eyes dropping to escape her tears.
She fainted, and on being revive- her
? agonizing screams sent chills to, the
hearts of the callous prison guards.
Carlton gazed upon the, creature be
fore him unmoved.
"Fred, I love you. I don't want to
prosecute you."
"Take her away. She's crazy," com
manded CarltonL

Uses SHimple Apparatus for Capsytr
ing Poisonous Snakes-Some
Particulars of His
There is one man in Boston who hiis
no fear pf women invading his Inne of
trade, and up to the present time he is
-the only man, as far .as is known, in
this state, who is a professional snake
catcher. This man, reports the Boston
Globe, is O. W. Mason, who' does not
think his living is in any way strange,
for he considers snakes far less harm*
less than dogs or any other pets. 0
A Globe reporter accompanied Mr.
Mason on a snake hunt to the Blue
hills the other day and was shown con
clusively that there need be no fear
of anybody getting killed from the bite
of a snake in this vicinity. Mr. Mason
donned leather gloves, leather gaiters
and unfolded his snake-catching appa
ratus, a long stick, from which hung
a'stout string tied to a sort of a dredg
ing machine. This machine was at
tached to the part of the stick nearest
the ground, and is worked with the
string attachment. When a snake is
seen'Mr. Mason, with the stick in the
right hand, string in the left, follows
it, places it over the snake's body, and
the snake is no longer at liberty.
"Well," said Mr. Mason, after the
first snake was caught, "did he run
after me or did I have to run after
"You see," he said, without waiting
for a reply, "if . had gone about my
own business, as it were, that snake
would now be enjoying the pleasure of
basking in the hot sun. No," continued
he, "a vicious dog would have turned
on me without provocation, but no
matter how vicious a snake is, he will
avoid a conflict.
"I have gone into a den. of nearly
100 snakes, and not one of them
turned on me until, cornered, and then
the fun began. Time and again I have
been bitten, but have not yet met any
thing snake shaped that I fear. If I
were to show the white feaLner things
might be different, but I know what to
do when there is danger around.
-"Near Randolph, about two miles
away from the nearest electric road,
I catch at least 20 rattlers to one cop
perhead. There are to be found the
Indian roads, unknown to any but prq
fpssors from the different colleges that
accompany me when there is an in
vestigation 'of the different snake poi
sons under way. The. copperheads are
most plentiful at or near the crags at
Milton, very far away from places vis
ited on Sunday by picniking parties.
"They run as high as two pounds in
weight and five feet long. Bull snakes,
of which there are none in the vicinity,
weigh as much as eight pounds, and
are at least ten feet long. I have fought
them, and am ready to do so again.
"Once I fought 14 rattlers. It took
me two hours to get the last one, and
though they wer as mad as hornets
I got the last one without harm, all
"Strange as it may seem," said Mr.
Mason, as he stroked the head of one
of the snakes which bad ventured to
the top of the bag in which it had been
put, "women are not rs much afraid
of snakes as are the Sterner sex. A
woman will "naturally shrink from a
snake, but this is due to fear. When,
however, she is told' that no harm will
result from patting its head this way
she will forget her fear and will do as
I am doing now ten times quicker than
I could get a man to do it. It is the
same with women and dogs. Men like
dogs, but would. not give them the
same attention as women do."
Though the best time of the year for
catching purposes- is the first two
weeks in May, an idea may be given of
the number caught when it is told that
on April 17 Mr. Mason caught 26 snakes
a.ll told. Some of them were four feet
When brought to Boston the snakes
are put into a large packing case cov
ered with wire netting. Here they are
fed, great care being taken to give
the.r plenty of water.
Oh aark days Prof. Mason kills those
best szed to his taste-that is, the
odtes that will bring him tne most
proit. r
The poison taken from them is bot
tled up and later sold to colleges at a
good profit. Then the bodies are bot
tled: up and labeled, to be .used later
for the edification of students.
When the prqlger kind are caught
they are fattened and killed for oiL
The latter is used for many thinks,
inostly for beautifying purposes, after
it is made into a cream fpr thy skin.
Large bull snakes, those weighing
eight pounds, will give four ounces of
oiL If caught in the fall a fair-sized
npake will have enough fat to keep it
ilive for nine months, and this fat
can be turned into money through the
oil process. The bull snake oil ,i the
best kind.
Its skin is worth one dollar, the oil
is worth one dollar and the states
where they are caught give a bounty
of one dollar for each one killed. The'
eastern market secures them for the
price that the oil and skin would bring.
S The Correct Writers.
There is not a single great author in
our literature in whose works numer

or thought to be pointed, out. They are '
charged with violating rules involving
the purity if not the permanence of the
language. A somewhat depressing in
