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

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

There were no organized detective

of thirty live and sandy haired, v, bile
tiie traveler was fifty and dark. The
supposed murderer was "very young,
also dark. Morgan on account of those
discrepancies gave up the theory of the
murdered traveler or the supposed
murderer being the missing casioc
and turned ids attention to hunting i.p
the real cashier with a view to getting
a higher reward for his capture offered
ly the bank.
Hearing, of a man living at Albany,
X. Y., who was unaccounted for, though
he did not answer the cashier's descrip
tion, Morgan went there and found one
whom he watched for a time and then,
taking his chances as to the man's

to Now York he sent for the president
of the bank that had been robbed, who
at once identified the man as tin? miss
ing cashier, though he was "made up"
to look fifty instead of thirty-five. 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. Arriving at the tavern he depos
ited the ?7"-0 with, the landlord, intend
ing to leave it there to strengthen the
suspicion of murder, for he would not
be suspected of leaving such a sum un
claimed if he were alive. What trou
bled him most was how to throw the
police on the wrong track concerning
the ImkI.v. A man murdered is not on
easy thing to remove without the f.ict
being known. Meeting the porter the
night before in a dark part of .the hall
where he could be only dimly wen, it
occurred to him to engage the man to
carry the trunk. This link in his plan,
which he' considered at the time the
weakest, proved the strongest. 1 lav Ins;

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
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,

"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
"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.
