Cause of Death and Disappear
ance of Body Mysteries. yy
Some fourteen years ago, while the
writer was attending the university of
Wisconsin, the people of the pretty little
city of Madison were startled one morn
ing with the report that a dead body
had been found on the shores of Third
lake, near the railway tracks ot the Chi
cago & Northwestern. Morbid curiosity
led hundreds to the spot. From the po
sition in which tho body lay, two • theo
ries were advanced as to the cause of
the dead man's taking off. One of these
was that his throat, presumably slashed
by the razor found near by. had been
cut by his own hand, and that
bad then leaped or had fallen
to the ground from ihe platform of the
rear coach of some train. The other
theory was that the man had been mur
dered and tbat his body had been
thrown from the moving train by his
assassin. The real truth never came to
light, although a coroner's jury tried to
solve the mystery. After the inquest
the body was made ready for burial,
but, as the dead man bad no friends and
was a stranger, the remains were not
very closely-guarded. One morning the
papers announced that the body had
mysteriously disappeared, no one knew
whither. Although efforts were dili
gently made to ascertain where it had
gone, it was never found, and the county
of Dane was saved the expense of burial.
Time passed on, and the circumstances
were forgotten. About two years ago
a St. Paul newspaper man had occasion
to visit the office ot a local physician
and surgeon. Glancing carelessly about
the doctor's office he espied a skull
which he look up and examined. The
doctor, never dreaming that his visitor ,
knew the story above related, told it to"
the Faber-pusher. lv conclusion he
said: "And the skull you hold in your
hand belonged to the dead man. 1 was
a medical student then and wanted a
subject." He would not say positively
that he captured the dead body himself,
but be left the very strong impression
that he had a hand in its removal.

A Painter Working at Berrisford's
Is the Accused.
Charles Norman, a painter, who has
been employed in assisting in the re

and confectionery factory, corner Fifth
and Minnesota streets, is in trouble. He
was arrested yesterday forenoon by an
officer and lodged at the central police
station under the charge of larceny.
Having been at work about the place, it
is thought that he knew the various
exits and entrances, and also where the
tempting sweets could be found. He
got into the building some wav, it is
alleged, yesterday morning. Chancing
to thrust bis head from a window, he
was discovered by an officer, it is
stated, who arrested him. His two hip
pockets, it is said, were crammed as full
as they could hold with hard candies,
and he had a quantity of softer confec
tionery in a box. This was all placed
in the locker at the station, and he will,
it is stated, be confronted in court with
the evidence of his peculation.

THE ONES ACCUSED OF SNATCH! KG

FLEURY COMES ON FIRST.
Trial of the Men Accused of
Snatching $5,000 in Gold
From the Merchants' National
Bank Off the Counter of the
Clearing House Comes On This
The trial of the men who are accused
of snatching £5,000 in gold belonging to
the Merchants' National bank from the
counter of the clearing house in the
Fiist National bank, Aug. 4 last, begins
this morniug before Judge Kelly.
lt is alleged that there were five men
connected with the crime — Fleury,
Howard, Meiggs, Miller and Morris.
All of these parties are under arrest
except Morris, who lias so far, as stated,
eluded all efforts of the detectives.
It will be remembered that after the
robbery the news spread about that five
men, of the names mentioned, had been,
as alleged, seen sneaking about banks
in Minneapolis in such a suspicious
manner that the detectives of that city
decided to arrest them, and after a
long chase, in which the five
lead the detectives a lively
race about the blocks of the
city,' they were arrested. There was
no specific evidence of criminal intent
against any of them, and they were
charged in the police court with va-

grancy, and sentenced tathe workhouse
with the privilege of leaving the city in
stead of going to the workhouse. Prior
to releasing them their photographs

Immediately after tlie sensational
bank robbery in St. Paul, our city de
tectives, profiting by the report in the
Globe of the suspicious characters
lurking about banks in that city, and
the fact that one of them had stated his
residence in St. Paul, went to the Flour
City and procured copies of the photo
graphs of the men, together with all the
facts gained there.
It is still fresh in mind that on the
afternoon of Aug. 4 Messenger Lares,
of the Merchants' National bank, ac
companied by -the negro porter of the
bauk, conveyea to the clearing house
several nags of gold, each containing
55,000. The mouey was, as stated, taken

At the preliminary hearing in the St.

identified Fleury as -being the man
who snatched the bag of gold, and How

The defense has decided to try the"ac

case of Fleury first. If Fleury is found
not guilty, it undoubtedly will result in
the release of the other three. On the
other hand, if Fleury is found guilty,
the defense will fight Uie other cases to
the bitter end.
County Attorney Pierce Butler and
his assistant, Stan Donnelly, will fight

Erwin and Johus are very confident
that the state cannot make out a case,

to prove an alibi.

THE DARK CONTINENT
At the People's Church Yesterday
Bishop Taylor, missionary to Africa
for the Methodist Episcopal church,
preached at the People's church, on
Pleasant avenue, to about two hundred
people. Tall, spare, straight, broad
shouldered, with a white beard, wider
at the end than at the mouth, with right
leg thrown over the left, the hands
grasping the arms of his chair, the
bishop sat almost motionless during the
musical and prayer service, his atten
tion and whole bearing showing a dis
position of firmness and determination.
Described by Dr. Smith as selected for
his post of duty by the conference of '84
on account of his toughness.the listener
could readily believe the choice a wise
one— he looks tough, rugged.
The bishop spoke as follows: Afri
cans are peculiar in that they all dress
alike; men and women wear the same
few yards of cloth wrapped around the
loins and, tucked in, falling to the knees.
1 saw one man of the West coast, a
strong, powerful fellow, wearing a robe
reaching from the neck to floor; a cap
on his head and coming down over bis
face. He stood charged with murder
poisoning a mess bf pottage. He
had been convicted and sentenced
to death. He was waiting for
the halter. He spoke no English.
Through an interpreter I learned
the meaning of the cries of Dedah, De
dah, Dedah, which translated meant
God, God. He fell ou bis face, wept
and covered the stones with his tears.
He cried and prayed. I prayed and
cried. He was approaching his God,
and though be had no Bible he had an
inner consciousness— he knew. The
scene was indicative of Paul's state
ment: "Those who have no written
record of law are moved by law within
themselves." Not written, yet sufficient.
Paul was uot ashamed of the Gospel of
Christ, in any place, before any people.
I'd be ashamed of the gospel some peo
ple practice, be ashamed before the
heathen. Gospel means not the Book,
but the force of God; His law.
At Alexandria the word : Greek was «a
synonym for gentile. Understanding of
language is necessary for the conversion
of any large body of people. Inner "
consciousness, followed out, is sufficient
for individuals, it .won't evangelize
Africa. Truth, believed, is adequate
for salvation, but truth is hard to get.
Everybody may have the -unwritten
knowledge of God. The written knowl
edge must be taken to them. The un
written knowledge— consciousness— be
gins before the child can say. mamma,
papa. In the beginning leave this to
chance of finding out. He implanted
this consciousness, this feeling, that
there is a God.
He arranged spiritual school, and Cain
was th** first scholar. Abel the second.
The invisible was clearly seen at the
beginning of the world, seen mentally.
The heavens, declare God's glory. it
doesn't originate. God conducts a night
school— seven nights -in - every week.
It's his creation, the world. Ilfs revela
tion. His divine teaching has . gone out
to the ends thereof, j The Lord enlight

KLiOQUKNT IN ODD.
Yesterday Kvening's Service at
Last evening Dr. E. P. Ingersoll,. of
the Park Congregational church, gave
the third sermon in the course to young
women. His themes were: "Selflie
liance:" "System and Decision of Char
acter." 22-.. 2.
Upon "Self-Reliance," among other
things, be said:
"True self-reliance never sighs for
independence from God or humanity.
Whatever belongs entirely to God it is
our glory to leave with Him. What
ever belongs to man's sphere it is the
glory of woman to leave where it be
long-?, and whatever belongs to woman's
sphere it is the glory of man to leave
with her. Each, man and woman.should
rejoice in mutual dependence, and both
in their dependence upon God, for to
have faith is to be strong.
"There is no way to victories except
through the red gates of war. War
with hindrances and temptations. Until
thrown upon our own resources we will
not grow, and so it is wisely and lovingly
ordered that the anchors which steady
us and the breakwaters which shield us
in childhood shall one by one disappear,
so that our liie-boat ma"-f have the sea.
»'A s women, as Christian women, be
sen-reliant not only in activities but
under the burden.
"What is tho result if I continually
throw myself upon your sympathies?
You grow weary in trying to bear for
me and with me. what T myself make
no brave effort to bear. The most ample
and refreshing sympathy is given, cau
only be given wheu we have proved
ourselves strong enough to live without
it. We pity, we help the silent sufferer.
We turn the prattling beggar from the
door." * i
Of system he said: "A time for ev
erything, and everything in its time."
There is no haphazard or **cliance" in
the -"city of gold." ; , -7"
"Map out ip : mind your day. First this
and then that. ' So the day wears away,
but you do not Now and then yon' talk

Yes, 'let all things be done decently
and in order.'
"Order is a lovely nymph; the child
of beauty and wisdom." Her attendants
are comfort, neatness and activity; her
abode is the valley of happiness; she Is
always to be found when sought for.
She never seems so lovely as when in
contrast with her foe disorder. -i i.y.
Of decision of character hesaid: "1

reason for it and not that crabbed per

'cause,' because it hasn't any cause.

Bishop Taylor is a man of a little
above the medium height, with a long,
white flowing beard, not unlike that of
the patriarchs of Abraham's time. The
speaker read a selection from Isaiah,
which he briefly commented upon iv an
easy style, with no attempts at oratori

"Africa is the greatest wilderness iv
the world. It constitutes about one
fifth ot the terra lirma of the globe. To
the north theie are the Desert of Sahara
and Egypt, whicii are lower than the
-.countries to the south. The general
topography of the country is that of a
series of elevated plateaus, rising from
7.000 to 8.000 feet above the sea. Then
there are great mountains, from which
the rivers descend,' which tend to pre
clude interior navigation. The con
tinent is practically surrounded by a
cordon of middle-class traders, who
Keep out what commerce would other
wise go there, and keep in that already
there. There are about 200 steamships
plying between Africa and Europe.
Most of the products constituting arti
cles of commerce are transported on
the heads and shoulders of men." The
speaker then gave a list of the products
indigenous to the Dark Contineut
paths to the interior of Africa. This
rich continent supports, it is estimated,
200,000.000 of people. The natives have
been accused of laziness. As to this, I
may say they. work up to the full meas
ure of their necessities. One thing is
certain, you will find fewer paupers in
Africa than in any country under the
sun. The .work of the men consists in
smelting iron ore. which, is converted
into steel and iron, from: which their
-implements of agriculture and warfare
are made. Gold abounds, and the men
make this*. into jewelry and ornaments.
The men also do the spinning and
weaving of the cotton. Their looms,
-although unlike those of our fore
fathers, do their work ou the same prin
ciple. You may think they learned
these ideas from outside nations,
but they did not. I think: these
ideas came to them from Shem, Ham
or Japhtbetb. The men build the
houses and make the clearings, but the
women plant the farms. A lazy, idle
man is fined a bullock or its equivalent
Of course the men do the fighting, and
there is no end of it. The women man
ufacture the pottery and the salt, and
are excellent cooks. Polygamy is prac
ticed, and each man clears a farm of
about two acres every year for each one
of his wives. I never saw more splen
did specimens of muscularity than the
African woman. 1 have frequently
seen an African woman with a baby on
her back carrying- a hundred weight
upon her head, and tri pping along eas
ily aud gracefully. These tribes have*
hospitable habit of clearing a farm fo r
the use of strangers. This is placed in
charge of the great queen of the tribe.
A stranger Deed but report himself to
her, and the products of this special
farm are his to enjoy. They will even
cut and dry. wood and tie in bundles for
the stranger's fire. 1 found no such a
crime as theft in the interior. It is a
capital offense, punishable by death or
reduction to slaveiy. Nearer the coast
the civilization of rum prevails, and
there thievery is very common. Intel
lectually. I think, the natives will com
pare favorably with ollfer peoples,
while phisically they are not to be sur
passed. Spiritually, 1 have found them
teachable and susceptible to good-influ
ences. On the other hand, they are all
bound down by cruel superstitions.
"'The evangelization of Africa is too
stupendous an undertaking for any one
man or a generation of men. The
methods formerly applied in Africa,
which answered in Asia.are too narrow,
and do not bring results. Formerly
the Methodist Missionary society ex
pended -537,000 annually in Liberia, boo
ing to swing out and evangelize the
continent. This did not work. At last

up a series of conferences with chiefs
and got tracts of land for mission farms.

. "The thought of . a second* birth
troubles -us about much as it did
jbucodetuus. But, after all, tbe man I
who has been born only once or twice
does not amount to much, for every
time a new scientific or" moral 'truth
comes to ius. it seems to us as almost
being born again. Jesus was born in
His infancy, again at His death, and
again into the Father's kingdom. Si
mon Peter only found Him when he
said: 'Men are seeking Thee.' Religion
is of just two parts— God seeking men
and men God. Philosophy simply unites
the finite and infinite. -

For the Poor of the City—Hutch
The following circular, signed by
Secretary Hutchins, of the relief so
ciety, will certainly, impress upon the
minds of the charitable people of the
city.and particularly those who through
their children have been interested In
what the schools have done in other
years.to make brighter in a measure the
holidays of some of the poor. That
there is need for doing even more than
has been done in the past in such a
year as the present is very evident, and
it is earnestly hoped that the school
children and others will assist as in the
oast in making bright the Thanksgiv
ing of some of those to whom very often
the day is only a name:
_To the Superintendent, Principals,
Teachers aud Pupils or the Pub
lic Schools — As Thanksgiving and
holiday time are approaching we
rememember . with gratitude the
magnificent donations made by your
schools last season for our poor
and we hereby respectfully request the
same course to be pursued this year,
with a few changes as below stated:
Instead of bread, of which ' last year
we had an over supply, allow me to sug
gest flour in quarter and one-half sacks,
aud all the clothing and shoes that it is
possible to bring in. not forgetting po
tatoes as well as all kinds of vegetables,
meats, jams and any other articles of
food that the children may be prompted
to bring. I would suggest that the
packages of tea, sugar, rice, prunes,oat
meal, cornmeal, coffee, etc., be all tied
On account of the inability of so many
of our poor to secure euiploymeut, we
shall need double the amount this year;
we therefore have made arrangements
by putting in bins, etc., in the cellar to
store away everything that may be de
livered, and thereby assist many whom
we find in distress.
. Will you kindly bring this matter be
fore your school at an early date, and so
arrange that the turkeys and what shall
accompany them for the Thanksgiving
dinner may be delivered at this office at
least one day before, giving us a chance
to sort and deliver to the people for
their Thauksgiving dinner;
Allow me to suggest (as 1 noticed last
year the boys who were superintending
the delivery wagons were so interested
that tbey appeared as if they were run
ning a wholesale business "in the city,
and 1 noticed the beneficial effect it haa
upon them) that this year every school
make arrangements whereby the boys
may call to the schools wagons that
shall bring the provisions here, aud
come with them, as mauy as possible, as
it will not only iuterest them, but will
greatly facilitate matters in the delivery
at this office. Respectfully,
M. L. Hutchins, Secretary.
A St. Anthony Hill Youth Has a
"... New Sport.
The average' American boy is a great
imitator. There is a strange perversity,
too, iii his proneness to follow bad ex
amples. Oue little St. Paul boy, im
pressed, presumably, with the frequent
hold-ups published by the press, on
Saturday started out to play the foot
pad. He armed himself with a large
toy pistol, procured a black mask for
his face, and started forth upon his
career. A St Anthony hill lady tells
the rest of the story. She says that on
Saturday morning she heard a noise at
the back door of her residence. "When
1 opened the door," said she, "theie
stood the little ten-year-old footpad
mask on and with bis wooden pistol
directed at my head. Said he, 'Hold up
your bands!' and I, falling in line with
the joke, did so. This satisfied him, and
off he ran. The absurdity of the matter
struck me, and I was much amused."
FINANCIAL BILL OF HEALTH ,
Given the Minnesota farmers'
Statements were recently published
reflecting on the Minnesota Farmers'
Hail Insurance company, of Montevid
eo. As the result the state insurance
commissioner made an investigation. and
issued the following report:
State of Minnesota, Department of
Insurance, St Paul, Nov. 9. 1893— This
is to certify that having caused an ex
amination to be made of the books' and
business of the Minnesota Farmers' Hail
Insurance company, of Montevideo,
Minn., for the year 1893, 1 find from the
report of such investigation that the
company is doing business upou an
economical and honorable basis. lam
satisfied that the officers of the com
pany are ouly receiving a very modest
salary each, and that the expenses of
the company are very light for the
amount of business dove.
In witness whereof, 1 have hereunto
set my hand and affixed my official seal
the day aud year first above written.

James Dillon, of the Father Matthew
Temperance society, is outspoken in his
denunciation of the methods of British
warfare with the Matabeles in South
Africa. Said Mr. Dillon yesterday:
"It does uot seem the fairest thing in
the world for the British to take a stand
at a safe distance with one of tliese kind
of guns where a man stands and 5 turns
a crank, at which a shower of balls
flies forth and mows down the poor nig
gers, who have no show."
Accused of Theft.
Ben Clay is a colored man who re
joices also iv the sobriquet of "Ginger."
He went into the cigar store of Wilbift
Tibbils, at 333 Robert street, yesterday
forenoon, and purchased a package of
smoking tobacco. Seeing close at hand
a box of cigars, as alleged, he appropri
ated them, and about 10 o'clock a. m.'
was arrested charged with the theft,
aud locked up at the central station.
