THE "BOMBAY FIEND."
Diabolical Work of a native

The Many Wild Theories Ad-

The faeries of crimes committed by
the &o-called "Whitechapel Fiend in
a district of London, is a plagiarism on
the work of the "bOmbay Fiend.1
only difference is that one killed only
mou, and Englishmen at that, and the
other kills only women, and women of
doubtful reputations. It was in 1858the
that tho Bombay fiend pursued his
bloody work, and during his career I
was a resident of that city and saw
most of his victims after death. A
all were English, and all of them army
or civil officers, and as the last mutter
ing^ of the mutiny had not yet been
stamped out, the British Government
took care to suppress the paiticulars
of this fiend's work as much as possi
ble. While a tLousand men were
quietly boai-ching for him the press
was forbidden to give him any notorie
ty, d,s it was believed the criminal was
a native, and to particularize would bo
to make a hero of him and induce
others to follow in his bloody footsteps.
The first murder occurred in March,
1858, and the victim was an English
Captain of infantry. He was leaving
a club house at ten o'clock at night,
and to reach the street he had to pass
between two stores by an alleyway
seven or eight feet wide and twenty
feet long. This way was lighted by a
People were coming and going every
tv, or three minutes, and it was a
public thoroughfare in which a woman
would have felt perfectly safe from vio
lence. Five minutes after the Captain
left the club house an alarm was raised
that he had been murdered. A score
of lis rushed out to find him dead in
the alleyway. He had been stabbed to
the heart, and his right ear had been
cut off. The body had not been de
spoiled, and the general verdict was
tnat it was a case of revenge. Thera
was a great stir over this, the first of
the series, and many natives were ar
i ested on suspicion. The British were
carrying things with a high hand then,
and some of the parties arrested were
tortured to extort a confession. It was
given out that one had confessed and
been executed, but this statement was
only to affect the native population.
Not one of the suspects had a word to
say to help clear up the mystery.
On the eleventh night after tho Cap
tain's murder a Lieutenant of dragoons
was found dead at the front door of the
bungalow of a friend on whom he was
about to oall. It was only twenty feet
from the gate to the steps, and th
path leading up was of sand. It Avas
only just after dark, with many people
moving about, and yet no one had been
alarmed. Th officer had not been
dead five minutes when found As in
the other case, he had been stabbed to
the heart and the right ear cut off and
carried away. This satisfied every
body that an assassin was abroad, and
the excitement was intense I was
the policy of tho Government to sup
press the facts as far as possible, but
they soon became known to every
European in the city, and every man
was his guaid from that time on.
Those who had been in India longest
reasoned that these murders were the
work of a fanatica religions fanatic.
A that date, and even for ten years
later, religious fanatics were to be
found in every community. They made
vows to do this or that for the glory
of their God, aud it was a rare thing
for ono of them to abandon his
work. 1 have met natives %ho had
vowed never to walk a straight Una-
sin had COTUS and gone like a shadow,
but he had done his work an well as in
the ether cases. The one thrust had
been sufficient, .and. the rdgfrfc ear had
been cut off. I was one of the first
called in when the alarm was raised.
I took a torch and examined the wall,
and at the rear of the garden I found
where a pole had been slanted up
against the walL to assist a elimber
The man had lifted the pole over to
helphim down.and I found the prints of
his sandals in the soft earth. It was
settled, to my satisfaction, at least,
that the assassin was a native, although
at this point the police brought for
ward the theory that the person was ft

arm raised, or had vowed not to speak.
If the assassin had vowed to take the
lives of a certain number of English
men he Avas more to be dreaded than a
baud of robbers. Nothing but his capt
ure Avouid prevent him from fulfilling
that VOAV, and the fact of his commit
ting two murders in prominent places
and leaving no clew to his identity
proved that ho was a crafty felloAV.
There was the usual cij against the
police force, but one who stopped to
consider for a moment realized how
helpless the officers were. A dozen
arrests Avere made and threats, prom
ises and torture used to secure a point
er, but the poor fellows knew nothing
and therefore, had nothing to give up.
On tho evening of the fifteenth day
after the second murder a third oc
cu?-red. A artillery Captain, who had
been through all tho mutiny, and who
had only that day boasted that he could
take care of himself under all circum
stances, had called at the bung-alow of
bis brother, who Avas in the civil serv
ice. Not finding him at home the Cap
tain had taken a turn in the garden
with his cigiv*. Tho throe native
hou&ehold servants had noticed him
walking up and down, but after a
few minutes one of them saw him
lying on the ground. The three ran
out, and it was to find him dead The

five. The arrest of a dozen sailors and
vagabonds followed, while all the na
tives in jail were turned loose. I
never knew whether the police believ
ed in the new theory, or whether it
was advised by the government, but
circumstances went prove that the
latter was the-case. The arrest and
abuse of innocent natives was causing
much excitement in the city, and it
was doubtless deemed safer to take an
other theory. At the same time the
authorities offered a reward of 1,000
for the arrest of the real assassin, and
a private circular was sent to every
European in Bombay Avarning him to
be on his guard.
On the evening" of the tenth day
after the third murder I was in a read
ing room much frequented by Euro
peans,. When I left I had to cross a
plat of ground about forty faet wide.
It was well shaded by trees, but also
well lighted by gas-light, and a brick
sidewalk six feet wide ran straight to
the street Kear the grate leading-
street was the only dark spot, and
a bench was here placed beneath a
tree. As I came along I noticed a
native seated on the bench as if wait
ing- for his master inside I noticed
him as one might glance at a passing
carriage, and was going on, Avhen he
"Sahib, for God's sake stop a mo

and his fingers had the grip of a vise.
He half rose from the bench, and
something forced me to say:
"I am sorry for you. I Avill go and
find some Englishman Avho can render
"But are you no English?"
"No, I am an American.'"
Ho seemed to gasp, and I heard Mm
mutter under his breath as he relaxed
his grasp on my fingers. Then he
"Never mind, Sahibnever mind.
Wo are all dogs to the English. They
would be glad to see me die. I will
find a doctor."
He staggered away through the gate
and Avas out of sight in a moment,
Avbile I found myself so Aveak that I
was obliged to sit doAvn on the bench
he vacated. I had caught sight of a
naked knife in his right hand as he
half rose from the bench. Here was
the assassin! He Avas a powerful fellow,
Avith muscles of steel. He got my left
hand, intending: to lift my arm and
give me the fatal blow, but when I gave
my nationality he desisted. It was the
English he Avas after. I had seen him
in the shadow, where all dark faces
look alike. I had heard his voice, but
all natives of India seem to have the
same intonations. Had he been led be
fore me two minutes later in company
with others I could not have picked
him out. Bu what assurance the as
sassin must have! There Avas not a
minute in which some one Avas not

and tAvo left the reading rooms.
hadn't one chance in fifty of commit
ting murder and escaping observation
and pursuit, but he took the risks.
It is a fact conceded by the average
Englishman that a British official who
is Avilling to take advice is a rarity.
The Indian mutiny Avas years coming.
The signs Avere as plain as the sun at
noonday, but British pigbeadednes
and official egotism refused to see or
believe. I verily believe that if
a New lovk detective should pro
ceed to London and secure a
straight pointer as to the identity of
the Whitechapel fiend he Avould not
only be scoffed at, but obstructions
Avould be throAvn in his way. I felt it my
duty to g-o to the English chief of po
lice of Bombay and lay the facts be
fore him as I have before the roader.
He began to smile as soon as I began
to talk, and presently Avaved me away,
"Thanks for your kindness, sir, but
our story is all nonsense. You don't
know those natives as we do. You
saw a knife and a plot where nothing
of the sort existed. Thanks, sir, but I
am very busy to-day'"
I went away feeling mortified and
indignant, but revenge was at hand.
That very evening, between ten and
eleven o'clock, a member of the civil
government of the Bombay presidency

Avas found weltering in his blood as
the assassin's fouith victim. wa-
lying in a heap in front of a bench in a
public park, and it Avas easy enough
for me to realize how it had come
about. The native Avho took my hand
had taken his. The knife had gone to
the man's heart, and the rig-tot ear was
missing. A police official came to see
me, and. I was asked to pay the chief
another visit, but this I flatly re
fused to do. I had been snub
bed and insulted, and if he caught
his man it must be without help
from me. The reward was now
increased to 2,000, and over thirty
arrests were made within the next
two days. The whole city was in a
ferment by this time, and as tho days
Avent by and the real assassin Avas not
caught, the populace demanded the
the dark regarding the maiVs identity.
Ten days passed, and then a British
Major was assassinated on a public
street between two lamp-posts. In.
this instance the hour was late and the
Major was drunk. The murder was
identical with the others, and during
the next day many Europeans left the

"What do you mean?" I asked.
"Well, he was a good-hearted com
panion, but a terrible hard master on
his servants. He had his OAvn way of
managing them. Some of us believe
in kicks and cuffs, backed up with
g-ood big oaths, but Tom pulled their
ears for them. It was not a Aveek be
fore his death that I saw him pull the
right ear of his groom until blood
flOAved from the torn flesh."
I put two and two tog-ether as quick
as a flash of lightning, and half an
hour later was with the chief of po
lice. It had puzzled every body to
understand why the assassin had sliced
off and carried away the rig-ht ear in
each ca&e. Here was a solution of the
mystery. The groom had gone into
other service, but Avas easily located
and arrested. He was caring- for the
horses of an officer, and in his box in
the stable was found his knife and the
four bloody ears. He was a bold, gamy
fellow, and lie boasted of his bloody

He was executed in public, and died
cursing the whole English race. How

did, but the money Avas divided be-

The Probable Cause of Feelings Born, of
Ignorance and Superstition.
Turning back to the heathen and the
savage, Ave see at once Avhence comes
the old feeling about mountains, xk feel

have all heard of the Brocken and its
witch revels, made famous by the
genius of Goethe. The Harti mount
ains are so rich in superstitious le
gends, not that they have more impos
ing- features of their own than many
other less celebrated mountains, but
because, standing out by themselves
on the great northern flats of Ger

imagination of the lowlanders around,

long continued to be a retreat for
pagan rites, and thus gained their

craft. Here, as is well kno\vn, ap

Avhen, at sunrise or sunset, the amazed
traveler happens to see a magnificent
reflection of his OAvn figure thrown
upon the sheet of mist vailing some
opposite peak. The most extraordi
nary of all such appearances seem to
be that observed at Adam's Peak, in
Ceylon, as described for us through a
recent expedition undertaken by the
Hon. Ralph Abercromby and two other
men of science:
"This mountain rises in an abrupt
cone, 1,000 feet above the chain and
7,552 feet above sea level. It lies near
an elboAV in the main range, while i
gorge runs up from the northeast just
to the west of it When, then, the
northeast monsoon blows morning

condensed vapor pass to the Avest of
the peak, and catch the shadows at
sunrise. The party reached the sum

peeped through a chink in the
clouds, and they saw the
pointed shadow of the peak lying on
the misty land. Soon a complete pris
matic circle of about eight degrees
diameter, Avith the red outside, formed
round the summit of the peak as a
center. The meteorologist, knowing
that with this bow there ought to be
spectral figures, waved his hand about,
and immediately found giant shadowy
arms moving- in the center of the rain

GRAINS OF GUMPTION.
OUR value in life is not in being conspicu
ous, but in being faithful to the work given
us, and. the trust impos ed on us.
BLUXDEBKG men, instead of admitting
their responsibility, try to excuse tnem
selves by throwing the blame upon others.
BE friendly and sociable, but don't go too
far. For people to live happy together tbe
real secret is that they should not live too
H^i who helps to circulate a piece of gos
sip 1/5 as bad as the one who originated it.
To put your fist in a tar barrel, and then go
round shaking hands A)rith every body, is
what some people like to do.
ALTHOUGH politeness necessarily follows
to a great extent set forms, it should have
its Origin in afiectiou for the xncUviduaX, or,
in a more general way, in consideration for
others. When the young man begins to be
have at home with less ps&iteness than he
exhibits abroad, there is much danger that
gradually he Avdl lose that consideration for
his immediate relatives which he should
have and exhibit.
TACT is born with some men and women,
like the supple, delicate fingers of the art
ist's band, and those who have it use. their
gift instinctively. It is not measured alike
to those Avho have it. Men possess it in
different degrees while others, again, are
wanting in it altogether. It is the outcome
of intellectual and of temperamental quali
fications, and implies the possession oi
clear perceptions, quick imagination and
delicate sensibilities. It is these that give
the tactful person his subtle intuition of an
other's mental processes and modes of feel
ing, and in the same moment exactly the
right method of dealin/ fith these.
THE THREE CROSSES.
THE Greek Cross has four equal arms,
representing the Gospel preached to the four
quarters of the earta hy the four evangel
THE Maltese Cross is formed of four ar
rove-heads meeting at the points, the badge
of the Knights of Malta. The eight points
of this form of the cross are said to symbol
ize the eight beatitudes.
TUE Cross of Calvary is across on three
steps, Avhich are supposed to signify the
three virtuesfaith, hope and charity, and
is the kind ahvays found on the altars of
churches Then have the Cross of Con
stantme, which is simply a monogram of the
first two Greek letters of the word Christ,

A GOOD SUGGESTION.
ONOMY, as wise folks say, What course should people then pursue
Is Avealth pronounced another Avay, In short, the only thing to do,
So Avhile "hard times" the people cry, Though rich in bonds, or Avorldly poor,
Thteall ToiletoSoaps the should notcare.
buy The IVORY SOA P" they should procure,
Which may be bought from coast to coabt.
At sixteen cents per pound at most,
And does more satisfaction grant
Than all the Toilet Soaps extant.
A WORD O WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be" just as good as the' Ivory'
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting It.
