A Complicated Can.
New York, Nov. B.—To unravel the
tangled skein of one of the most mys
terious as well as heinous crimes of
the century is the task set for the jury
the selection of which began today in

miner at Long Island city. The cause,
officially known as the people vs. Mar
tin Thorn, is based upon the discovery
in June last in the east river and in
Ogden’s woods, north of this oity, of a
portion of a human body. The head
was missing. By a series of curious
links in a chain of circumstantial evi
dence the dismembered remains have
been identified by a number of wit
nesses as a portion of the body ot
William Guldensuppe, a rubber in a
Turkish bathhouse in this oity.
Briefly it is alleged that Mrs. Nack
lured Guldensuppe to a cottage on
YVoodside, L. 1., where she said be
was about to establish a “baby farm;”
that in a room in that cottage Martin
Thorn waylaid and shot Guldensuppe,
afterwards severing his head, dismem
bering his corpse and disposing of the
remains in various ways.

Very Encouraging News Yesterday
From the New Orleans
Thinks All Will Bo Over By tbs First of
Next Week—Memphis is
New Orleans, Nov. B.—There is no
doubt but that the backbone of the
fever is broken. Another cold spell
will kill all further infection. Yester
day’s record showed only 13 new cases
and, judging from the looks of things,
today’s record will be smaller.
It was 10:30 o’clock before anew
case was entered on the board of
health books. Two cases came in at
one time and, strange to say, from
extreme ends of the city. The two
deaths which occurred last night were
reported at the same time, making the
record two new cases and two deaths,
the smallest for the hours since Sep
tember 24.
While the board of health officials do
not officially state that the end is in
sight, nevertheless they feel safe and
unofficially say that it would not
surprise them if not a few cases was
reported after the end of the week,
Memphis, Nov. B.—The board of
health this morning reports no new
cases and no deaths from feyer.
Business has almost resumed its nor
mal condition aDd the fever scare is a
thing of the past.
Mobile, Nov. B.—There were five new
oases and no deaths today.
New Orleans, Nov. 8. —At 1 o’olock
the record of the board of health was
six new cases and two deaths.

Dr. Burford Finds Signs of an Accident n His
Door-Knob and in His Yard.
When Dr. Hugh Burford came out
of his residence Sunday morning to
make a number of calls, he noticed the
signs of a bloody visitor visible on the
door-knob and along the walk that
leads to his front-gate. There was
blood on the knob, and a trail of it,
leading out of the gate, and down the
Dr. Burford followed the trail to the
corner of George and Richmond
streets, where it stopped abruptly.
There was a copious supply of it, as
though the sufferer, whoever it was,
had been bleeding profusely.
It was impossible to learn anything
further about the matter. The blood
stains were probably left by someone
hurt in a brawl of some kind, and
being unable to awake the doctor, the
injured man probably went to find
some other physician.
The Gala Week.
The Cumberland route advertises a
round trip rate of $1.50 to Jacksonville

i Mallory Lin# Sends the Comal to Catoh Up
with Its Freights.
The Mallory liner Comal, one of the
largest and fastest of the ships of the
line, will arrive this morning to load
a cargo for New York. The Colorado
arrived yeetorday afternoon.
Various causes have conspired to
make the Mallory line a little behind
in handling its large freights through
this port. The strike, the stress of
weather, and the acoldent to ths Rio
Grande lasV week oaused delay, and
there was considerable talk among the
local merchants of having their freight
sent through Savannah, unless the
Mallory people took prompt steps to
overoome the delay.
The coming of the Comal, which has
been taken off the Galveston line tem
porarily to make an extra trip to
Brunswick, will solve the difficulty,
and the merobants will have no fur
ther oause of complaint. The delay
was due to providential causes, but
the line has been prompt to make up
for lost time.
The Comal will ba in command of
Captain Evans, formerly of the State
of Texas. She is a large ship, 2,251
net tonnage, is 320 feet long and 42
feet beam. She will be the largest
coastwise steamship ever in this port.
The accident to the Rio Grande hap
pened when the steamer was 200 miltf
out from New York. Her shaft was
cracked and she had to sail back to her
starting point. The Colorado, which
arrived yesterday afternoon, is on her
regular trip. The State of Texas
sailed Sunday for New York.
The Mallory line deserves credit for
its promptness in meeting the require
ments of Brunswick shippers and
