A DISHONEST FELLOW. " "Victim In IllliioN, Ono in nll fnrnln. nnd Stilt Another In Sett Zealand. San Oal., May 20. Sensational developments have resulted day in the case of J3ooth, the bicyclist, who swindled a young St. Louis ludy and was arrested therefor. A woman, calling herself Mrs. Alico "Veeden, called at police henduarters, and said she had been Booth's tress, but that he had deserted her about seven months ago, and took nearly all her clothing and jewelry. The day after he left a letter came for him, which she opened. It was from his mother in Wellington iTov Zealand, reproaching him for leaving there suddenly, and begging him to come back, pay his debts, and deal honorably by the youncr girl whom he compromised. Booth's trunk was in tho hands of the police, and Mrs. Wccdcn asked to look over tho contents. Sho identified many articles as hers. Sho said that, besides taking her thine, ho made nvrny with $,200 in money. "While the trunk-searching was coing on Mi.ss McCabe, accompanied by Gardner and sonic lady, entered. Captain Lees then decided to have Booth brought up. He did not appear surprised at nicotine Ms. Not a muscle of his face moved. Sho (greeted h'm with, " How are you, Charley? " and tho two proceeded to divide tho contents of the trunk. Sho claimed about three-fourth of the articles. She claimed all his white shirts, asserting that she had bought and paid for them in Melbourne. .While tho two were disputing tho door opened and Miss McCabe, Booth's latest viotim, entered, leaning on thenrm of Chief Crowley. Booth was visibly moved. He started and glanced nervously at her and at the officer. She was much affected, and sobbed and moaned. Tho scene was sad. Gardner stood on ono side with a determined iace and fists clenched, breathing vengeance on Booth. Tho latter soon recovered his self-possession and continued to arrnngo the trunk. Miss' McCabe snoke a few words in a low tone to him. Tears came into his eyes, and he said he wished tho thing had not happened, as U was bad for both. She demanded a ring and $."i0 from him, and after some demurring he gave her tho ring, but refused to give up the monev until he had seen his attorney. Mrs. "Weeden will prosecuto him for grand larcenv. complaint already havinc been made at tho timo he decamped last October. A correspondent interviewed Miss McCabe. She was in spisms nearly all dav yesterday, and was hardly able to penk upon the subject. She said she l"ft an honored home for Booth, who seemed kind and affectionate all that a woman could desire. She first met him in "Whitehall. III., nt the house of her adopted father. She is almost broken-hearted by her lpvor's perfidy, and intends to po back to St. Louis as soon as Gardner has also abandoned all his plans of going to "Washington Territory. It is hard to place Booth's nativity, hut he was probably born in Canada. Beports have been received from various quarters of Booth's desertion of other women. Death of n Man With n SVniisc Ills. lorv. Tauis, May 20. There has just died at Charenton, near this city, a man who has had a very curious history. Thirty years ago this person, whoso name was Boussot, was condemned to deatlr at Seine Assizes for the murder of an old gentleman, M. Demoury. The case had excited considerable interest, and tho court was crowded with spectators. Among the persons standing immediately behind Boussot, who was flanked by a pair of gendarmes, was ono Planchat, an of tho Prcsse newspaper, who had somehow contrived to wriggle himself intothat position without attracting notice. Scarcely had the sentence been pronounced when Planchat,moved, as no afterward explained, by an uncontrollable impulse, )assed the side of his hand over the prisoner's neck in imitation of tho keen jlade of the guillotine, at tho same Jmo emitting a whirring sound. instantly fell forward with a shriek of terror, and tho bystanders, indignant at this heartless and shocking act, rushed upon Planohat and roundly abused him. Planohat was subsequently condemned to two years' imprisonment. As for his victim, he nover recovered from?tho shook, remaining insane until tho day of his death. IIo was pardoned by tho Emperor and confined, first at Bicotro, and afterward nt Oharonton, whoro ho has just, expired. Tho unfortunate man was under tho impression that he had .been actually beheaded in. the Palais doJustico, and when relating the story was in tbo habit of imitating tho sound tljat haunted him for thirty years. i-.A, EGfNEW & ALLEN, Manufacturers nnd Dealers in f STOVES, GRATES, MANTELS, COPPER, : TINWARE, HOLLOW.
