Ifl the autumn of IV.M or !-.'( the landlord Of the Now York ex tawni. midway between and Morristown. was shut t i ! ? r II ft his. house Tireriaratoi'V t,i en. big to bed win n a traveler rode up on bor-vbaek and demanded a night's lodging. He was apparently about fif ty y tars old, with gt tarty gray black hair, a full beard and mustache, both sprinkled wiih gray. He carried strap ped behind Ids saddle a bundle wrap ped in paper, which he unstrapped .,n;l brought into the house in lieu of hag gage. P.eforo going to bed he deposited with the landlord for safe keeping ifT.'d In bills, saying that he had drawr it from a bank iu Morristown ditr lug the day and had noticed stt thi teller's window a young man in h brown overcefd, a beaver hat, tar gloves and a single ' eyeglass-something unusual in Americawho cast a covetous glance at the bills. He had met the wine man on the road and was sure the fellow was following him to rob him. For this reason he desired the landlord to put the money in his safe and give him a room which could lie both locked and bolted. Having Been bis funds properly disposed of, he went Upstairs. The next morning about daylight, a housemaid who was lighting the tires saw a young man mme downstairs with a paper parcel under his arm. He had on a brown overcoat, a beaver hitt. tan gloves nnd a single eyeglass. When a guest eaine down to break fast he reported having heard groans in the next room, which proved to be the one occupied by the guest who had deposited the money. The landlord hurried to the room in question, fouud it locked, knocked, received no ris sponse, gained access through a win dow opening into a court and fount! no one there. That the traveler had b-vn murdered by the man in the brown overcoat would have l.e n accepted by every one had any phiti -lble theory been hit upon as to 'what h;.d been done with the body. Tliis diillciiity was, however, partially obviated by a purler's state ment tlj-it be liad met a man in the hall the night before who had notified .him j that be would require his services m carrying out n trunk the next morning. It was assumed that the murderer had found some oilier means of remov ing the trtnik. which must surely have contained the body. Curiously enough. i;s soon as this phase of the mystery appeared people ceased to speculate up on who committed the murder and be gan to dispute upon bow the trunk con taining the hotly was got out of the ho tel without attracting attention. It is net the soluble that interests people; it is the Insoluble. There were no organized detective agencies at that time, but the landlord of the r.ssex tavern could not rest con tent with the matter unexplained, so RICH GIFT FOR KIND DEED.

Hearing, of a man living at Albany, X.

Then the culprit broke down and confessed. This was his story; After the 'robbery he lay in hiding for awhile in Morristown, but as lie was it) danger of discovery left the place 'h evening on horseback, having concocted the following plan to become lost to the world: In his paper parcel he carried the bills and articles for dis guise.

George Klgnold. the well known ac tor, recently narrated an incident which came under his observation whik crossing the Atlantic in the steamship Germanic some years ago. "It wa3 on my second. voyage across the Atlantic," said Mr. Rlgnold, "whet) one morning about 5 o'clock, we btdng then In mid-Atlantic, the ship sudden ly stopped. Most of the passengers, including myself, scrambled on deck ii1 THE MJkS WAVED HIS AltMS. hasty toilets to inquire what was the matter. It turned out that the captain had stopped the sSdp because he had seen something on the horizon that hc could not quite make out, and after a careful scrutiny he changed his course to get a nearer view. "The order was given, the screw began to revolve again, and we made straight for the 'dark speck,' the mys tery about which all were by now anxious to solve. At length we could discern something fluttering in the wind. Was it a signal of distress? Out Vessel slowed down and crept closet and slid closer until only a short dis tance divided us from the object of oui curiosity. We could now see that it was a sm.'t'l schooner, evidently water logged, with her deck nearly level with the sea, which was continually i-di ing over her. Her bulwarks had been almost entirely carried.away, both her musts were broken off some eight or ten feet from the deck, aud only a fi w shreds of canvas remained hanging to a tangle of spars on the bowsprit, i lie only things that appeared to have es caped the general destruction were a small deck bouse and a water cask, the hitter strongly lashed to ringbolts in the d.-ck. "Presently we saw a tall, silent fig ure standing against the stump of the foremast waving his arms. Being within bailing distance, onr captain spoke from the bridge. - 'What do you want?' he said. The reply came up from the submerged hull in a strong, clear voice: 'Will you take us on board? - Out since the 17th of Febru ary! All crew deadl' "What a strange and tragic story of the sea was told in those few words! The date he gave aud that on which he was now speaking denoted ou in tervening period of live mouths, and the dismal spectacle we were now look ing down upon gave ample food for the imagination to feed upon. "The order was given for a boat to be lowered and rowed alongside, which was done with amazing rapidity. Then, to our great surprise, it was found that the man was not entirely alone on that dismantled hull. Two loud nnd joyous barks were"' heard, and a large New foundland dog appeared. He, strange to say, seemed in good health and spir its, for lie was the first to spring into the boat, evidently quite appreciating the long looked for reprieve. Then more discoveries were made. From the dock house our men carried a half un conscious boy, with hollow cheeks aud sunken eyes, and 'placed Uim gently In the boat. Next a tottering figure with frozen, useless hands swathed in rags was helped in and, after him-another disheveled and bewildered being car rying some papers beneath his arms. He, we afterward discovered, was the captain of the schooner. Lastly came the gaunt, dark man who bad signaled us. There they were the dog, a las ear sailor with frozen hands, a half dead boy, the dazed looking captain end the tall American, all in a state of pitiable emaciation. "After they were taken aboard end lud time to recuperate it was learned V'-" M( V that ihe man who had first signaled u was only a sailor wo:':n his pn-tfige but it was his i:ui will and dauntless energy that practically pulled the sur vivors through, fur the captain had col lapsed and this sailor bad become the ruling spirit. "The name of the schooner was the Island Helie. There bad been eleven souls on Ixetrd when she etartcd on her voyage-i-the captain, bis wife and two children, the mate and four sailors, a negro cook, the strange sailor. "From the start they experienced bad! weather, nnd the captabi. after l-i-sieu mo.-t of his canvas, had transferred his wife and children to a passing stcnmei that had offered assistance. Tboti the little schooner continued on her way, l,u Oll IM en Mlj'imcu vwm IC' rn,u ivj. j "Then the great struggle began. it!) pitlles persistence the had weather continued. The sails and spars, which were now almost beyond repair, were of small use, and the vessel drifted farther and farther to the north. The cold began to freeze the nnray upon the rigging into ice. Then came a sudden violent squall, which carried away the mainmast and the wreckage disabled the rudder. The schooner was now helpless, and the captain ordered that the sail be taken from the foremast Four men went aloft, but before they could complete their labors the fore mast snapped short oil' and all came down together in an appalling taugle. One man went overboard, one broke his thigh aud two were wedged in among the mass of wreckage. The oth ers were too exhausted to help their companions and, they perished miser ably. "I'.enumbed with the cold, the sur vivors could form no idea where they were, though the Increasing cold show ed that they were being driven north. They kept at the pumps as long as their strength lasted, but still the wa ter gained, and meanwhile the ice was accumulating on the deck. The wreck age beneath which the two dead men lay buried retarded the water from flowing off fo such an extent that it be came a solid block of lee, and through this ley sepuleher the dead men. won derfully magnified, could be discerned. "The sailor with the broken thigh died within a few hours, as did later the negro cook, whose hands and feet became frozen. The survivors huddled together in the deck house, and as by this time the ship's stores were ex hausted they were obliged to have re course to the cargo, which consisted of j salted tish, 1 his had to be got out cf the hold, and the hatches were conse quently taken off. But they found the food almost uneatable, because of the salt, and in order to get it down they trailed it behind the schooner as she drifted to get the salt out of it. "The famished men found that even then It was hard to swailow, but the dog seemed to thrive on It and willing ly imparled the warmth of his body to his frozen companions. Fortunately they had drinking water in sufficiency, thanks to the wonderful forethought of. the American, who had collected j quantities of snow during the driving! squalls. ' j "Gradually the severity of the weath er began to abate, and the ice slowly melted.

"The weather now admitted of an observation being taken, by which they learned their position; They had drift ed into the gulf stream, vvhose warm current was carrying them back to the more temperate regions from which they bad been blown, and consequently Into the track of Atlantic steamers.

Without coins into a scientific dis sertation on breathing it may be stated that the lower portion of the stomach plays its part iu the process of respira tion. Now, the ordinary man, says this in vestigator, allows the lower portion of the stomach to play too great a part in the process of breathing, whereas the corset eonUnes the breathing t the fair it's more largely to the upper' portion of the chest and woman retains her crown of ftlory. .
