An Rxprrlenrn In an Inn on the
Ppnnlih Ironllcr IlciorU In aural
Frnncf Where Theft and Murder
and loose Airnlted the Victim
From a worldwide traveler come
thcso stories of evil ruins abroad of
dark nights evil companions and lone
liness He nays
I Konictluicfl think of n night I
spent in nn Inn on the Spanish troll
I tier In n little seaside rlllago surround
i wl by n thick pine forest I was nc
room lu which another traveler was
lying Ho was talkative as most
southern Frcnchmcti are and curious
na to inr business circunistanecs and
future inovciiientH l told him n story
of my flunnclnl troubles which BCOIIKH
to me to have saved my life He was
restless luring the ulght and kept go
ing to the window I could not go to
sleep while he wns moving about
In the end we both fell asleep Ho
hind given me his nnim1 u name with
which n year or two later the whole of
France was ringing He was tried for
a double murdtr pen > etrate l under cir
cumstances of peculiar atrocity and
with such n motive of petty robbery
that the opinion was he must have
had long familiarity with crime The
murder for which ho wan convicted
was carried out to gain possession of
LO and people believed none but a
hardened criminal would nerve himself
to murder for gain BO paltry
Such was my companion In a lonely
Inn where my dUappearunco would
have arroused iiiltlicr curiosity nor
suspicion How he would have dis
posed of me I could Imagine from the
crime for which he was convicted Ho
traveled with a large trunk I some
times think it was the one afterward
Bclzcri at the cloakroom of a elation
on the Cherbourg Hue containing the
body of hU latest victim 1 think all
that saved me from sepulture within i
It was the cunning with which I had
concealed the fact I was In possession j
that night of a considerable sum
It was with similar cunning that
my brother nnd myself avoided a like
danger at Itottcrdam We were lads
of ten and twelve respectively on our
way home to England from our school
In Wiesbaden As the ship did not
start until the day following our ar
rival wo had been obliged to pass the
illght In Itottcrdam A loafer conduct
ed us to n lulsoniblo tavern In a slum
off the Itompjfs where we paid for tha
best room
As the time for retiring came our
villainous looking landlord conducted
us to a dark closet and told us to
sleep there We hove fallen Into n
trap I said to my brother and so It
seemed when later we heard a stealthy
step < m the staircase Then Wo beghn
to jlk In German and the gist of our
conversation was What would become
of us the next day If tho money ex
p t11 from our parentsdld not arrive 7
Wo colored the story of distress and
probably our being awake saved us In
Stead of the talc overheard We heard
the step retreating and remaining
awake illl morning wo were not mOo
bested From what I have p Ince heart nf
this class Of house In Rotterdam and
Amsterdam 1liavo no doubt that we
had n narrow escape
France too U dotted with houses
where murder and theft lurk behind
the monk of treachery In the forest
of Clmtenay three miles from Macon
you may see the ruins of a church con
necrated to St John Not far from
this writes Knoul Olabcrt n scoun
drel had built n house for the accom
modatlon of travelers In this house
he murdcnll all who came to lodge
The monster used the flesh of his vic
tims for nourishment
A man came there with his wife and
asked shelter Having rested his wife
prying Into n closet discovered n heap
of human remains At this the tray
elers grew pale and made for the road
The Innkeeper tried to stop them but
terror lent speed so thoy were able to
escape to the town where they Inform
ed Prince Othon of the discovery A
great number of men set out tho mon
ster was found In his den and no less
than fortyeight human heads were ills
covered remains of travelers whom ho
had murdered and devoured Ho was
dragged back to town tied to a beam
In n cellar and burned to death
I myself says Glabcrt Was pres
ent at his execution
From other chronicles of this period
cannibalism seems to have been looked
upon by Innkeepers as n prerequisite of
their profession This story is In Its
way more horrible than Hamilton
Aides fiction for in his evil Inn only
the teeth and hair of tho victims were
coveted by tho two sinters of Cologne
Tho French Inn of most sinister repu
tation is still standing in a mountain
pass In Auvergne This Is known to
history as the Murderers inn The Inn
Is n death trap Ilooms assigned I to
travelers have windows barred with
iron In an outhouse la 1 the funmco
In which bodies of victims were dis
posed of Hundreds of lonely travel
ers belated In this Inaccessible spot
have been plundered and murdered

It b Made In dreiit Variety and J
of Excellent Quality
1 A great deal of good leather comes
out of tho Bea not the kind of leather
that comes from the backs of walrus
seal rind otter Everybody knows
about that There is a queerer leather
which comes from the bodies of tlsh
An extremely fine quality of green
leather made in Turkey Is manufac
tured from tho skin of an ugly iUh
called the angelfish This is a kind of
shark n shark with thick wlngllkc
fills that have earned for him the nanio
of angel though ho does not look a bit
like nn angel but rather tho opposite
The sword grips of tho otllcers of tho
German army arc made from shark
leather too They arc beautiful In
pattern being marked with dark dla
mouth shaped figures This skin comes
from a North tea shark known na tho
diamond shark German leather man
ufacturers have tried to produce a
leather from animal hides that shall
supplant the skin but In rain Unlike
animal leather fish leather Is abso
lutely Impervious to water and never
gets soggy from dampness therefore It
is ideal for sword grips as no matter
how much the band may perspire the
grip remains hint and dry
i The sturgeon despite his lumpy ar
mor furnishes n valuable and attrnc
t the leather When the bony plates are
i taken off their pattern remains on the
skin just as the pattern of alligator
scales remains on alligator leather Ibo
i Pacific coast sturgeon and tho stur
geon of the great lakes produce a
tough leather belting that is used to I
I make Irtces for joining leather belting
for machinery and the laces often out
wear the belting
The strange garfish an American
fresh water fish with long toothed
jaws like those of the crocodile tins a
slit that can be polished smooth until
It has a finish like ivory It makes
beautiful jewel caskets and picture
frames The skin of tbo garfish used
to bo converted Into armor by some
tribes of American savages The hide
is MO tough and hard that It makes a
breastplate that can turn a knife or
spear Some of the finer specimen
that have been l found are hard enough
to turn even a blow from a tomahawk
The savages who wore this flub
armor nisI used to wear n fish helmet
It was made from tho skin of the
prickly porcupine fish and besides pro
tecting tho wearer head It was used
as nweapon of offense The warrior
butted their enemies with It and as
It had hundreds of Ironllkc pikes the
operation was eminently painful to the
object of attack
In Gloucester the king town of
fish the humble cod has been utilized
with success for making leather for
shoes and gloves In Egypt men walk
on vandals made from tho skins of lied
sea fish In Russia certain inmsant

Along tljtt big salmon rivers of Si
beria the natives often wear brilliant
leather garments dyed red and yellow
I They are made from salmon skins In
Alaska beautiful waterproof bags ore

The queerest use Is that to which tile
Intestines of the sea lion arc put They

Death Dealing Swamp lat That
I Grow In Nicaragua
Mr Uunstan naturalist who spent
I t nearly two years In Central America
I In tho study of the flora and fauna of
tho country relates tho finding Of a
singular growth In ono of the Bwampu
which surround tho great lakes of Ni I
caragua IIo was engaged In hunting
I for botanical and entomological sped
mens when he heard his dog cry out
as If In agony from a distance Ilun
I nlng to the spot whence tho animals
I cries came Mr Dunstan found him
j enveloped In n perfect network of what
Deemed to be a fine ropellko tissue of
I i roots and fibers Tho plant or vino
I seemed composed entirely of bare In
I terlacing stems resembling more than
anything else the branches of tho weep
lug willow denuded of Itx foliage hut
of n dark nearly black him nail cot
I i creel with 11 thick viscid gum that ex
udnl from the pores
i Drawing his knife Mr Dunstnn en
dttivored to cut the animal free but
I It was only with the greatest dUDcully
lit ho succeeded In revering the
fleshy muscular fibers To his honor
and amazement the naturalist then
saw t that tho dogn body was blood
stained while the skin appeared to
have been actually Bucked or puckered
lu spots and till animal staggered as
If front exhaustion In cutting the
vine tho twigs curled like living sinu
oils fingers about Mr Dunstans hand
nnd It requlrtxl no slight force to I tnt
the meml > er from Its clinging grasp
which left the flesh ml nnd blistered
The gum exuding from the vino was
Of n grayish dark tinge remarkably
adhesive and of n disagreeable animal
odor powerful and nauseating to III
The native servants who accompa
nied Mr Dunstan manifested the
greatest horror of the vine which they
tall thin devils snare and were full
of stories of Its death dealing power
lie was able to discover very little
about the nature of the plant owing to
the difficulty of handling It for Its
grasp can only be t turn away with the
loss of skin and even of flesh but ash I
near as Mr Dunstan could ascertain
Its power of suction Is contained In a I
number of Infinitesimal mouths or lit I
tie suckers which ordinarily rinsed i
open for the reception of food If the I
substance Is animal the blood IK drawn
off anti the carcass or refuse then
dropped A hump of raw meat boln
thrown It In the short spare of fl
minutes tho blood will bo thoroughly
dnmk off nnd the moss thrown aside
Its voracity Is almost t beyond belief
la Case of Fire
The chief of the Philadelphia fire de
partment has published n sot of mien
In Cime of Fire They ought to bo
learned by heart like the multiplica
firm table so that when needed they
will spring automatically to the mind
First sound the alarm
Close the door and open till win
down A closed 1 door Is a wonderful
protection against tlnme nn open win
dow lets tho bent and smoke out
Do not fear thick smoke too much I
Go down on your hands and knees I
ou will and no smoke near the floor
Nine times out of ten you cnn desced 1
a stairway so Many have Iteen burn
ed to death because they thought a
smoke filled stairway meant an Impas
sable one There Is plenty of pure
air to breathe near the floor
Should the lire have gained such
headway that all exits aro blocked
shut yourself In n front room and lean
far out of the I window so that tho fire
men can Bee you Once they neo you
It is reasonably sure they will rescue
you Above all keep cool Tho majority
of denths from fire would have been
averted if tbo victims had not lost
their heads

It seems that snowdrop Is not the
oldest name by which this familiar

the rhyme puts It
Tho anowdrop in purest while array
First rears her head on Candltmai day
