A mystery of 17 years seems about to 6_ cleared up by the confession of a prisoner in a Belgian jail. This man, who wears the sackcloth mask of the Prison de Louvain, is Adam Wirth. "Le Brigand Internationale." It is said that he has confessed the theft of the ugnous stolen "'Duchess of Devonshire.'" he painting which set all London agog. ood which mysteriously disappeared on the night of May 24, 1876. The picture is believed to be a genuine GOinsborough and was purchased from a Mrs. Mageunis in 1839 by a picture re storer named Bentley. He gave £50 for t and was delighted with his bargain when he sold it for 60 guineas to Mr. Wynn Ellis. As part of the latter's fa mous collection it was put up at auction at Christie's on May 6, 1876, and a great struggle for its purchase ensued. The then Earl of Dudley ran the price up to £10,000, but could not shake off the per istent agent of the Messrs. Agnew, who secured the p.vture for £10,100, the high et price ever paid forapicture at Chrs tie's. The dealer : at once placed it in their plleries at ,9 Bond street, and Londor went wild .over the picture. It monopo lIted the , nversation of the day, and at public re:eptions women dressed after r the tash. n of the beautiful painted duchess. One Tight on May 24, only 18 days after it calme into the Messrs. Agnew' possessi-,n,it was left as usual at 11 p. m. en the walls of the gallery. In themorn. tog it had been cut from the fraeie and stolen. The cotl.mnd Yard detectivet took the matter in hand, and the owneri offered £1,000 reward for its recovery. People who doubted the genuineness of the work hinted that the Messrs. Agnew had found these suspicion~well grounded mad had burned the picture in disgust, starting the story of the theft in order to conceal their mortification. But neither ramors nor the reward brought out any facts, until, as the years went on, the £1,000 tempted the thief to negotiate for the return of the picture. But he was too timid, and nothing came of the at tempt. Now he has confessed in jail and says that he stole the picture in the hope of gatting ransom for it without risk. He ailed and for years had the stolen "Duchess," like a white elephant, on his hands. He wasof American birth, about U years old at the time and a robber by oeasion. A boldly planned felony put in possession of £60,000, with which he lived like a king among the very peo ie he had previously robbed. The pic tre was a constant menace to his safe y, but he could not make up his mind to part with it. One scheme suggested Mself to him-of painting another pio tWre over the Gainsborough, having it put up at a sale, buying it in and then, the process of cleaning it, discovering te real picture. But for this he needed ecomplices, anld he was afraid to risk it. At last he landed in the Belgian gplson, and there being nothing to lose mow he has made a partial confession, which he promises to supplement with the story of what finally became of the pbture. That it is not destroyed seems paobable from his assurance that he will prove his statement.-New York Sun. Now Smeis Ir CMege. When all other senses fail him, the viar Mar to Midway plaisance may depend uon his sense of smell to inform him what village or building he may be in.

Those who have been fortunate enough to glide from Italy's picturesque shores into the warm blue waters of the MIedi terranleau ;.li float luxuriously in the salty sea among a perfect school of hap py bathers will never forget it. Never! Venice. Naples. Capri, Amalfl! It makes one's eyes glisten at the very thought of it. To Italy ' splendid title. "The Land of Poetry and Song," might also he add ed *,The Land of Baths" were it not that the second name to some fastidious minds would detract from the beauty of the first. The ancient Romans, borrowing as they did all the worthily imitable cus toms from their Greek and Egyptian neighbors, found the baths especially suited to their luxaurious tastes and car tied them to a degree of excellence which had never been attained, making tbem not only of immense benefit in a saui tary way, but establishing them as a favorite rendezvous for peopleof culture and talent as wellas forthe poorer class es, who also enjoyed the privilege of their own compartments. Look at the baths of Diocletian, which are estimated to have accommodated no less than 18, 000 people at one time. And those of Caracallar at Rome. What wonderful ruins of a still more wonderful struc ture! In these walls bathing became a science. Cold baths, tepid baths, hot baths, oil baths, sun baths-every kind of bath! Why simply to visit the place was a rest and recreation. Statuary and paintings lent beauty on all sides. Music charmed. Oratorsand poetsentertained. What beauty in the remaining walls of the Pompeiian baths! The frescoes are as bright and beautiful as if they were done but yesterday, and the marble carvings and pavements which escaped the fury of the burning mountain have softened itn color almost to an ivory. coast on the charming picturesque road leading from Pozzuoli to Baiae os:e alights from the little carozz-lla an.: clambers up to a cave cut in the ,i . the mountain, wherein is a hri, I : to a high temperature in its -t:lt rr nean channels by veins of volc:.a ;i which abound near VesuRin ;' suited well the coumff(t I. o, who made of it a fay-. ri a se caused the rough stoe t w,: , t placed there, which still r?,imain.

But now all Italy turn its fa,'e to its natural advantages, and with one accord cries as early as May. "Let us to the sear' Not all the estab lishments are as convenient and as well constructed as the Lido at Venice and those of Posilipo at Naples. but they are all on the same general plan. Every place open to the use of the public is pr vided with a pavilion where people con gregate to discuss the latest topics, or to devour with eager ears the latest gossip. while there is always music, from morn ing till night. if only one of those harass ing till night, if only one of thse harass ing "organettes" or portable pianos. which grind incessantly and seem al ways to be playing "Santa Lucia" or "Bella Napoli" and vary sometimes withl the "Trovatore." On either side of the pavihbm are the "camerini," or dressing rooms-one side reserved for ladies, the other for gentle men. These "camerini" are the rough eat kind of little wooden boxes, carpeted with a mat of braided straw and fur nished with four rude chairs for the four persons each is supposed to accom modate. Then there are the steps lead ing to the water. The fee for the use of each room is one franc fifty (or 80 cents). including the linen sheets, the price never varying whether there be one or four persons together. Once in the water and prestol change! all the reserved etiquette of the Italian drawing room vanishes. Then and then only does liberty exist, and the pretty little signorinas, as well as the handsome signoras. in the very simplest kind of bathing costume, generally dark blue with a little white braid. transformed into veritable water nymphs, swim off with al the grace and alacrity of a fish, never fearing, never tiring, Just as if they had been born to it. And theseis no end to romance. Fancy a boat full of handsomeyoung ocers towingatrail of pretty, bright eyed girls tosome quiet, picturesque spot, where all indulge in a jolly little luncheon. It doesn't seem so very much, does it? And yet aue recalls that these same young oacsrs may never have dared address the yong ladies on land, or if they have had the good for tune to do so it was only under the watchful eye of the omaipresent chaper on. then we realise what it really means. Then there are the quieter places, like the placid blue watersed Sorresto, asay down under the high walls of rock, where one may Boat and gaz. up at the beautiful villas and fragrant orange gardens. And Capri. where the wonder ftl blne grotto is free to all who can swim there, while the hurried traveler inevitably falls a victim to the merciless boatmen who shake their hands in one's face and demand "la tarifa." which never fails to exceed the fee regularly eetablished.
