Superstition is the religion of the
crook. Criminologists always keep in
mind his weakness when working on a
mysterious case; for the great signif
icance which a burglar or,murderer at
taches to possession of a rabbit's ^foot,
the hangman's rope and coffin wood
has often resulted in his capture.
What may look like carelessness in
the retails of a crime is often super
stitious practice. Thus crooks believe
that if they leave something of them
selves in the place they have "visited,
they will : inevtiably escape punish
ment. For example, they may leave a
button from a coat, or wash their
hands in a basin.
One housebreaker even went so far
as to cut himself and leave a smear
of his blood on the panel of a closet.
This led the detectives to believe there
had been several burglars and that
a struggle had taken place over divis
But Dr. Hans Gross,

of the superstitious nature of a thief,

chief factors in the new William Fox
