Ik liioUr tl Ike tcj Ckaii. The keychain worn by many gentlemen is the invention of a noted burglar, who spent many years of his life in a dungeon cell for plying his vocation in the hotels in Philadelphia. While at work one stormy night, trying to torn the lock of a Walnut street door, the false key dropped in the snow, and while searching for it a watchman came along and locked the burglar op and had him sent to Moyamen sing. Having some ingenuity,he thought of having keys fastened to a chain, so that when a limb of the law appeared, he could fly without a thought about the keys, and found it worked like a charm. He has now seen the error of his ways, and lives comfortably on a royalty from manufacturers. Sich it Fa me. Walla Walla Union Journal; Hon. J. G.
