It wa in a hospital at the past end rl
London that I lirst tn:ide tlie aeijuaint
anoe of Clubiiose." An old college
friend of mine, who was one of the resi
dent Mirjreons was showing me over the
wards, and there passed us two or three
times a hospital nurse, whose remark
able appearance arrested mv attention.
Bhe had I think, the most hideous and
repuKive face I ever saw on man or
woman. It was not that the features
'were naturally ugly, for it was simply
impossible to tell in what semblance
nature had originally molded tlieiii: but
they had been so completely battered
out of shape, that one would have fancied
she must have been subjected to much
the same treatment as the figure-head on
which laniel Quilp used to vent his im
yotent fury. The hero of a score of un
successful prize-lights eon hi not have
shown worse facial uisligurement than
this ticiily dressed, cleanly looking
When we had finished our tour of the
wards, I turned to my friend, and point
ing to the receding ligure of the nurse,
who had just passed us again, I said:
"What a dreadful ill-looking nurse you
have there! Why, it must be enough to
send a patient into fits to have that face
bending over him.1'
" O!'" said he, laughing, that's 'Club
nose.' " Then lowering his voice, he
added: " She's not a nur.se really she's
" A detective!" I exclaimed. ' Why,
you don't mean to say that the police
dog the steps of a poor wretch even in
' No." he replied; "I don't think she
has her eye upon any of the patients it
is the friends who come to visit the pa
tients that she watches. It is her way
of doing business. Whenever there has
heen a crime committed in a neighbor
hood, she g'es out as a nurse to the
hospital of the district. I don't exactly
know what her tnwhtx opcnvuli is. She
has ;i proper certificate as a nurse, and
jierfonns her duties like any of the rest;
but it is understood that every facility
for getting the information she requires
is to put in her way, without of course
exciting suspicion. How she picks tip
her iuformaiLm I don't know, but I sus
pect it is by listening to the talk of the
jiatient.s and their friends, on visiting
ias. At any rate, I believe she has ol
tained clues under this disguise when
others have failed her; and if the game
wasn't worth the candle, I don't sup
pose she'd try it."
"Do the other nurses know her real
" No. They may have their suspic
ions; hut it is kept a secret from all but
" Is C'hihnose' your nickname for
her, or is she generally known by that
sohri'i'iit f I asked.
" No; I did not christen her so: it is

Her real name is Margaret Saunders.
She has a very j;ieer history. 1 believe:
hut she1 is exceedingly reserved, and I
have never had a chance of diawiii!? her
And this was all I learned about
" C'lulnoe" on that occasion.
Three or four days later two ladies,
with whom I was intimately connected
wen' robbed of a considerable quantity
of vahiaMe jewelry, and I was intrusted
with the investigation of the-case. I had
paid numlicrless visits to Scotland Yard,
and had had no end of interviews with
detectives, but still there was no satis
factory clue to the identity of l!ie thieves.
One evening I was sitting clone after
dinner, when, the servant entered and
paid that " a person" wished to see me.
"Man or woman?" I asked.
" A woman, sir says she wishes to
see you partickler, ?ir."
" Weil, siiow her in," I said, inwardly
wondering who t he st range ft male might
be wiio w anted to see me at so unreason
able an hour.
The door opened, and a respectable
looking woman wearing a thick veil
was shown in. I requested her to take
a seat. She did so: and as soon as the
servant had retired ami. the door was
cio.-eil. die. tiirew hack her veil and re
vealed the di-torted features of "Club
nose." I lvinemKered her in an instant: indeed
who that had once seeu tliat face could
ever forget it?
"Vou have enine from Scotland Yard?"
I said, interrogatively.
" Yes. -ir." she answered, quietly. " I
am Margeret Saunders, from the detective
ller voice was harsh and unpleasant;
but there was a firmness and decision
about her manner, and a look of intelli
gence ami resolution in her keen gray
eves, which at once inspired confidence.
The bonnet she wore concealed to a cer
tain extent the terrible disfigurement of
her face; but even then the most reck
less flatterer dared not have called her
phvsiogiiontv prepossessing. It was not
a bad lace: but one could not look at it
without a shudder, so frightfully' was it
mutilated. The nose in particular I no
ticed hail lt-en knocked into a grotesque
lv fantastic shape, thereby giving rise to
the tobriijui which she was familiarly
known. She had come to inform me of
a very important piece of evidence winch
she had discovered, and which, I say at
"on;:". led ultimately to the identification
and conviction of the thieves. Into the
details of the ease 1 need not enter; it
was only remarkable because it intro
duced me personally to "Clubnose,"
and enabled me eventually to learn from
her own lips the story of her life, which
I purp e here brieily setting down.
Some live-and-twcnty years ago a
crime was perpetrated in London which
was marked by such exceptional features
of atrocity as to send a thrill of horror
through the whole community. A middle-aged
gentleman of eccentric habits
was atAeked in his own house, and not
only beaten arwl left for dead, but muti
lated in a peculiarly shockiiu; manner.
The miscreants also carried oil" a consid
erable quantity of vahibble property.
The viet im of this at rocious crime, strange
to say, in spite of the horrible injuries ne
had su taiued, was not killed outright,
and though for weeks his life was de
spaired of, he eventually recovered, only,
however, to be for the remainder of his
davs a helpless cripple.
For some time the police could find no
clue to the perpetrator of this barbarous
outrage; but at last suspicion was at
tracted to a woman who was known to
have leen occasionally employed about
the house to do odd jobs of cleaning. A
person answering to her description, , it
was discovered, had been seen leaving
the house in company with a man on
the day on which the crime was com
mitted. Some minor circumstances
tended to confirm the suspicion that this
woman was implicated in the aflair, and
she was accordingly arrested and charge 1
before a magistrate. After one or two
remands, for the purpose of obtaining
further proof, the magistrate decided
that there was not sufficient evidence to
justify him in sending the case for trial
and the accused woman was discharged.
That womaii was Margeret launders.
She had all alonjr emphatically protested
her innocence, and after her discharge,
she vowed that she would never rest un
til she had proved it by bringing the
bafll'.'d by the failure of their charge
against herself, were compelled to con
fess themselves completely at fault ; from
them, Magaret Saunders could expect
no assistance. Alone and unaided she
set to work upon her self-imposed task.
At the very outset, when it seemed to
her that every moment was of value, she
had the misfortune to fall down a flight
of steps and break her leg. This neces
sitated her removal to the hospital, and
it was as she lay there chating at the en
forced delay and inaction, .that there
came to. her the lirst ray of light to guide
her on her search. In the next bed to
her there was a woman who was also
suffering from a severe accident. On
visiting-day she heard this woman say
in a low, anxions voice: " Is Robert
Ye," was the reply, also in a wom
an s voice, "lies in trlasgow, reauy
to bolt, if necessary; but there'll be no
need for that, the bobbies have chucked
up the game, as the'' mostly do when
they've failed to fix a charge upon the
first person they spot unless there's an
extra big reward offered, which there
am t in this case.
How it was suddenly borne home to
her that this " Robert" was the man she
wanted, "Cluhnose" told mo she never
could quite make out. It flashed upon
her nil of a minute, she said, and she
never had a doubt of the correctness of
the instinct that prompted her to the con
viction. She lay and listened, but cou'd
catch nothing more. She got a good
look, however, at the woman who was a
visitor, and felt certain she should know
her again anywhere. Before leaving the
hospital, Margaret Saunders had scraped
up a speaking acquaintance with the
patient who was so anxious about
"Robert, and learned enough to lind
out in what part of London she must
look for information about the character
and antecedents of the said "Robert."
It was this incident, by tin way, that
suggested to her afterward the value of
assuming the disguise of a hospital nurse.
The ingenuity with which she ferreted
out the facts which eventually determin
ed her to track "Robert" to Glasgow,
was wonderful. And not less wonderful
was her dogged patience. Even when
she had run her quarry to earth and was
convinced in her own mind that she had
her hands upon the real criminal, she
had to wait until she could piece the bits
of evidence together, and above all, until
the victim of the outrage, whose brain
had been seriously affected by the in
juries he had received, had sufficiently
recovered his mind and memory to give
some intelligible aecouut of the attack
upon him. Even when he could do so,
he professed himself exceedingly doubt
ful of being able to recognize or identify
his assailants: he knew, however, there
were two of them a man and a woman.
It was nearly eighteen months after
the perpetration of the crime before the
patience and perseverance of Margaret
Saunders were rewarded with sufficient
success to justify her iu communicating
with the police. The Scotland Yard
ofiieials were at first hardly inclined to
credit her: but her earnestness convinced
them at last that there was " something
in it." l'crhaps they were helped a lit
tle toward that conviction by the fact
that she solemnly swore she would never
finger a penny of the reward. " She
had hunted this man down to clear her
own character and set herself right with
the world," she said, " and not a farth
ing of the reward would she touch." It
is unnecessary to dwell upon the sequel.
Suffice it to say that " Robert" was ar
rested, that his accomplice, who was the
niece of the victim's housekeeper, was
subsequently taken also; that the pair
were tried, convicted, and sentenced,
the woman to ten years, the man to
penal servitude for life.
Margaret Saunders wa.s highly com
plimented by the Judge upon the sagac
ity and acuteness she had displayed, his
Lordship observing that she was " a bora
detective." The press too was loud in
her praises; and a subscription was set
on foot as an expression of the public
admiration for the indomitable courage,
resolution, and patience, and the extra-
i ordinary asiuieuess which iuid-uujj'led
j her to bring two great criminals to jus
! The journal which had suggested and
started trie subscription deputed a mem
ber of its stali", M'eli known as a master
of the "picturesque" style, to interview
Margaret Saunders and write up a sen
sational article upon her. He applied to
the police for her address, and an in
spector from Scotland Yard volunteered
to go with him Sir Richard Mayne, the
then Chief Commissioner of Police, hav-in"-
expressed a desire that something
should' be done for Margaret Saunders to
show the official appreciation of her con
duct. The journaii-t and the inspector
accordingly proceeded together on their
visit to tiie heroine. They found Marga
ret Saunders among very unsavory soci
etyin one of the lowest of the filthy
dens that swarm about the Ixindon docks.
Not a very inviting subject for interview
ing, and but a sorry heroine for a sensa
tional article. However, they did inter
view her, and she soon, in language
more vigorous than polite, gave them
ner rmnii upon rne proposeu recogmuou
of her services. She wouldn't have any
thing to do with any subscription or re
ward wouldn't touch a farthing.
"Look 'ere," she said, doggedly;
what I d jtie I done' for my own sake,
and t o odv else's. I meant rightia' o'
myself, and I have righted myself.
That's my business not yours. I "don't
want nobody's money nor praise. Let
'em keep that to themselves. But I'll
tell you what," she added, turning
sharply to the inspector, " If you mean
true by all them fine compliments "
"Most certainly we do," interposod
"Well, then, Til tell you what yow
can do to show it."
" What is that?" asked the insjctor,
" Why, make me one o' yourselves.
If I'm as good as you say, 1 might be
worth something in your line. Make
me one o' yourselves a detective.
That's all I ask; and if you won't do
that, I don't want to have nothing more
to say to j'e."
It was a novel and startling proposi
tion, and the inspector was somewhat
taken aback by it; however, he faithfully
promised to lay tiie matter before the
authorities at Scotland Yard, and let her
know the result; with that, he and his
companion left her. The end of it was
that her wish was granted. Margaret
Saunders was duly enrolled as a female
detective, and a most aetivo and intelli
gent officer she proved herself to le.
That is in substance the strange hisUiry
of " Clubnose's" connection with the
police, as she herself, told it to me. I
questioned her also upon her profession
al career; but here she was more reti
cent; still, I gathered that it had been
marked by many exciting adventures
and hair-breadth escapes from death. I
learned, for example, that she owed the
horrible disfigurement of her face to tho
polite attentions of two water side ruf
fians whose lady companions she had
been instrumental in consigning to the
tender care of the jailer of Peutonville.
" They took it out of me werry hot,"
she said, in her rough but undemonstra
tive manner. " I reckon they thought
they had done for me, but bless ye, I'm
tough, and they got their seven j-ears
apiece for me though mind ye, the
Scotland Yard folks would never let on
as I was one o' them. They was tried
and convicted for a-ssaultin' of me as a
ordinary person. The lawyers tried to
make out as I was a policy spy: but they
couldn't prove it. But I had to keep
clear o' that district for a long while
I wa.s curioits to know how with such
a remarkable physiognomy she was not
recognised in a moment wherever she
went, and I put the question to her as
delicately as I could. I at once found
that I had touched her hobby. If there
was one thing that she prided herself
upon more than another it was her pow
er of disguising herself: and indeed I
afterward learned from one of the in
spectors that she had good reason lor
being proud of this aecomplisnment, for
there was no one in the force who could
compete with her in the cleverness and
variety of her disguises. Twice, how
ever,' she admitted that her disguise had
been penetrated, and on eacli occasion
she nearly paid the penalty with her life.
On the first occasion, she was pitched
out of the window and had her leg broken.
On the second which happened not
more than a year before my lirst intro
duction to her in her professional capac
ityshe had what she herself called " a
precious narrow shave o' bein' sent to
kingdom-come outright." She had been
for weeks on the trail of a very clever
gang of thieves, and had actually been
adniitted a member of the fraternity,
and wormed herself into their secrets, so
perfect and artistic was her disguise.
On a certain evening it was agreed
that the police were to swoop down up
on the gang, acting on "information re
ceived from "Clubnose." On this
evening it unfortunately happened (hat
there was present for the lirst time an
oM member of the gang who had just
rrot his ticket-of-leave. Whether " Clul-
nose," through over-confidence in the
perfection of her disguise, committed
some indisere.ton or not, she could not
tell; but at any rate in some way the
suspicions of the returned convict were
roused. He communicated them pri
vately to some of his "pals" a rush
was made at "Clubnose;" she was over
powered, stripped of her disguise, and
then " welted," to use her expression,
nbout the head and body with pokers,
bars, legs of chairs, and any other avnil
ablo weapon, until she was left "amass
o' jelly." She contrived, however, be
fore they knocked her senseless, to break
the winilo'v and sound the whistle she
carried. The police burst in, too late to
save her from the vengeance of the
thieves, but in time to make an impor
tant capture. They found "Clubnose"
with her skull fraeiunyl. and with hard
ly a whole bone in her skin. The inju
ries to her skull were so severe as to ne
cessitate the operation of trepanning,
which was successfully performed: but,
she said, she had never been herself
since, and was constantly troubled with
terrible pains in the head.
" Ay," she added, with the rude kind
of philosophy which was a curious trait
in her character. ' that was a gaiius bad
job, that was. They nigh done for me;
but it might ha' been worse. Supposin1
now, they'd ha' smashed me up afore I
spotted their little game, eh? That
would ha' been somethin' to grumble
It was a worse "job" for poor "Club
nose" than she imagined. Within six
months after my la.-t interview witli her
she was dead: the cause of her death be
ing an abscess in the brain, produced by
the frightful injuries to her head on the
occlusion when "they nigh done" for
her. She must have been missed in the
force; for she was as the Judge de
scribed her at the trial which first
brought her remarkable qualities into
prominence " a horn detective:" and it
will be long before the police of this or
any other country obtain the services of a i
woman possessed of the nerve, the as
tuteness and the dogged resolution of
" Clubnose." CIuitnlMrs" Journal.
