Poe, with hts wonderful Invention and
morbid imagination, never conceived a
ftory more wild and tragic than the tin
adorned record of what was known 24
years ago a the Goss-Uddcrzook tragedy.
The Baltimore daily papers of Feb. 3,
18T2, contained an account of the burning
to death of W. S. Goss, residing at 814
North Utah street in that city. Gosa was
a German by birth; bnt. coming to Ameri
ca when a child, spoke the language like a
native. He was remarkably intelligent, a
well built man of above the average height,
and at the time of his reported death was
US years of ago. He was married, and his
brother-in-law, William Udderzook, a ma
chinist, was interested with him In the
I.erfection of a patent for the production
of a material that was to take the place of
India rubber for matting and the rougher
As the materials used In experimenting
were inflammable and the odor offensive,
Goss rented a little frame house which
stood aloneon the outskirts of the city, and
in this he and his brother-in-luw did their
On the evening of Feb. 2, 1S72, Goss
went to this place, as was his custom, and
when it became dark ho lit a lump, which
went out suddenly. Ho tried to light it
again and airain, but without success. He
then sent his brotlier-in-lnw, I'dderzook,
to a neighlxiring house to borrow a lamp.
This house was about 100 yards owny and
was owned by a German Ialxircr. Vdder
r.ook was asking for the lamp when he
heard a dull explosion, and looking in the
direction of the lalioratory he saw it illu
lnin.it.il and flames bursting from the
windows. It was an old rattletrap of nn

Ixk!v, answering iu every way to t.lmt of
Goss, was found amid the hot ashes, the
hair and extremities burned off and the
features destroyed beyond recognition.
A coroner s inquest was held on the re
mains, and the verdict was that the liodv
was that of W. S. Goss, and that he had
come to his death "through the agency of
divine Providence and a fire caused bv the
explosion of a lamp."
Goss was a thrifty man, and so hiul
made provision for his wife in the event of
his death. His life was insured for f-J.'i,-U00
in four of the best comiunics in the

living she very properly applied to the life
insurance companies for the amount of
the jMilieies. Goss' character was good, ex
cept that he was addicted to periodic sprees,
during which, however, he injured nolxsiy
imt himself. He was a good husband and
stood well with his associates, yet the in
surance companies did not ray with the
promptness that was expected. Indeed
they refused to pay at all nod insisted
upon an investigation.
One thing that excited the suspicion of
the insurance people was the fact that A.
C. Goss, the brother of the dc;d man, un
tier an assumed name hired a horse at a
livery stable in Baltimore on the night of
the fire, drove Into the country unaccom
panied and came back in the same way
about midnight. Acting ittmn the advice
of her brother-in-law Udderzook and her
lawyers Mrs. Goss sued the insurance
companies for the full amount of the poli
cles. The companies joined issue and cm
ployed the best lawyers in the Monument
City to defend their cause.
As an essential preliminary to the de
fense the charred body was exhumed and
given over to a committee of the foremost
physicians, among them professors in the
medical college, for examination.
When the trial caino on, Mrs. Goss, who
had been married for 1 2 years and so should

The witnesses for the defense, nlthongh
not disproving the plaintiff, cast serious
doubts upon the death of Goss and created
a strong suspicion that anoihcr man had

that a corpse had been pnx-ured and placed
in the building, winch was 11 red by Goss
himself with the full knowledge of Udder- j
ztxik after the latter had gone in search of ,
a lamp. The jury gave a verdict against
the iusurance companies, but defendant's
counsel gave notice of motion for a new,
trial, pending which the ourt adjourned.
The judge granted the motion nnd post- J
poncd the next hearing nntil the Xoveiu- :
bcr term, eight months away, presumably
to give those interested in the defense a
chance to accumulate evidence.
William Udderzook was born near Jen
nerville in (.'hester county. Pa., ulxiut
miles from Philadelphia. His mother still
lived near there, but- he had not visited
her for years until the June following this
On the 80th day of .June, about 9 o'clock
in the evening. Udilerzimk put up at a
tavern In the village of Jennerville. He
was accompanied by a man wIhiso physical
description corresponded in every way
with that of Goss.
Udderzook felt that he was in a trap.
From the time of the trial he had Kt-n
shadowed by detectitcs. He knew that
Goss was living and in hiding and liable
at any time to make his identity known
through one of his periodic spree. The
hepr of gain was now lost sight of in fear
for his earn safety, and he could not fee
sure of that safety while Goes was living
and in the vicinity.
Udderzook claimed that his companion
was in ill health, and so he carried his
food to him in his room. On the night of
the Fourth of July Udderzook and his
companion left the hotel in a buggy. Just
one week afterward a farmer residing in
the neighborhood had his attention at
tracted bya number of buzzards assembled
in the woods about 100 yards from the
road. An examination of the spot led to
the discovery of the Ixxly of a man scarce
ly covered with leaves, dirt and branches.
The farmer notified the deputy corner, an
inquest was held, and this verdict was
given: "That the man. name unknown.
came to his death on or about the night of
July 4, 13T3. from wounds Inflicted with a
dirk or other sharp instrument In the
hands of William Udderzook of Balti
Already the intelligent farmers of Ches
ter conntv had learned through the papers
of Udderzook's connection with the Goss
trial in Baltimore. When he lived in their
midst, he had worn a curious bloodstone
ring, and this ring was found beside the
body of the murdered man, showing that
some resistance had been made.
Udderzook, who had attempted flight in
the direction of Baltimore, was overtaken
and brought back to the county scat. The
news of the tragedy spread through the
country, nnd representatives of the insur
ance companies were nt once on the ground.
The body of the murdered: man was ex
humed. A. C. Goss, the brother of the
man supposed to have lieen burned in Bal
timore, was brought before the corpse, as
were others, and one and all declared the
murdered man to be Winfleld S. Goss.
Even the insurance companies were con
vinced that he was now dead sure enongh.
But, though suspicion pointed stronglr
against Udderzook as the murderer, the
evidence was far front being conclusive.
The scene of the tragedy had changed from
Maryland to Pennsylvania.
On the Slst of October, in the beautiful
town of Westehester, Chief Justice Butler
presiding, William Udderzook was nr
rnienetl for the murder of Winfleld S. Goss.
A. Wagner, Ksq., was the commonwealth's
attorney, and among the array of counsel
whom Udderzook's mother and friends se
cured for his defense was tiie brilliant
Wayno Mac-Yeagh, son in-law of Himon
Cameron, and subsequently attorney gen
eral of the United States, and in this year
IS'.io American minister to Italy.
On the trial it came out that the murder
was of the most atrix-ious kind. The vic
tim's limbs were severed from the body
and hidden many yards away. Vet, wit h the
strange fatality tliat follows murderers who
try to concci.1 their work, the dead man's
face was but little marred. An attempt
was made to show that tho Ixiily was not
that of W. S. Goss, but without effect.
Witnesses were procured who proved where
Goss had lieen nearly every day from the
time of his supposed cremation up to the
night of his actual murder.
Mrs. (Joss was brought on from Balti
more and denied emphatically that the
man whom Udderzook was charged with
murdering was her husliand. The prose
cution was inexorable, for it had a double
purpose to perform first to show the con
spiracy to defraud and next to show a
motive for the murder of Goss.
Beyond all doubt the fact was establish
ed that a man who called himself A. C.
Wilson in Newark, where he had been hid
ing, and the one who had been murdered
in the Chester county woixis were one and
the same person, and with equal certainty
it was proved that tills man was the W. r.
(joss siipiHwod to have been burned to
limit li in Baltimore.
The trial created the greatest interest,
not only iu southern Pennsylvania, but
throughout the country. There had been
nothing like it lx-fore in the history of
After a trial lasting two weeks this
was biinday, Nov. 7, 1S73 the jury
brought in a verdict of guilty of murder
in the ilrst degree.
A motion was made for a new trial.
but it was not granted. An appeal was
made to t he supreme court of Pennsylva
nia, but without success. Still the coun
sel for the defense did not give up. There
is a court of last resort in Pennsylvania
known as the board of pardons, which sits
at Harrisburg on stated occasions. The
lxiard of iarduns refused to interfere.
Then an unsuccessful apjx-al was made to
t he governor.
Throughout the wholo trial X'dderzook
manifested tho greatest nonchalance and
arrogance and stubbornly protested his in
nocence. Ho heard the reading of the
death warrant with indifference and was
hung, without any signs of fear or repent
once, on the morning of Thursday, the
12th OI November, 1874.

A Trt'JE FISH STORY.
oaat Kead! It if Teat Aro Hot
to Be line It.
We give every one fair warn in ir that
this it a fish story. More than that, it
is a story of a fish with less. Now. all
who are not prepared to believe mar
top right here, for this is a true story,
and to doubt it would be to question the
Teracity of one of Ellsworth's best citi
zens, a man held high in the esteem of
his fellows, and whose word is good.
This is the story aa he told it to the reporter:
Some yean ago he was employed in
lumbering on the west branch of the
Penobscot. His camp was at North
Twin lake. In camp with him was a
man who declared lie had caught trout
with legs. Of course he was laughed at,
but bided his time to prove his story.
One Sunday he proposed, to the Ells
worth man a fishing trip. It was a ten
mile tramp across country to the pond
he wished to visit, but that was consid
ered bnt a short jaunt to these woods
men experienced in the use of snow shoes.
The trip was made, and in the course
of a few hours' fishing a dozen or more
trout were canght. As the Ellsworth
man stooped to pick tip his fish he no
ticed something peculiar about one of
them that was breathing his last. In
unison with the opening and the closing
of the gills something havimr the sr
pearanee of legs was stretched out from
the fish's body. He called to his compan
ion to see what manner of fish he had
canght, but that individual calmly re
marked : "Oh, that's one of those trout
with legs I wxs telling von about.
They're all that way in this pond. "
Examination proved this to be the
fact Each fish was supplied with six
legs three on each side which folded
bo closely to the body as to be hardly
noticeable except on close inspection.
Uut tney were legs sure enough. The
pond where these remarkable fish were
canght is sitnated on Saddleback moun
tain. It is a small pond, covering only
about 20 acres, and lias neither inlet
nor ontlet. It is said thut there is a
similar pond on Monnt Katahdin whero
the six legged front ore canght. Tho
fish canght by the Ellsworth man wero
exhibited at Bangor. Ho will not say
that the trout may still bo canght. Pos
sibly they have taken to tho land and
walked off. Ellsworth (Me.) Ameri
The Only Way.
Mr. William Spark iu his "Musical
Memoirs" tells a story of the famous
Wesley which was related to him by
Mr. Bishop, the London organ builder.
Wesley was a great extemporaneous
fugne player, and on the occasion to
which Mr. Bishop referred had been
asked to show off a new organ by play
ing a voluntary at the afterneon service
previous to the reading of the first les
son. Before going to the organ he asked
the vicar, who was an amateur organ
ist, how long the voluntary should last.
"Oh," replied the vicar, "please
yourself, Mr. Wesley. Say five or ton
minutes, bnt we should like to hear as
much of the different stops as you can
oblige us with. "
When the time came, after a few pre
liminary chords Wesley started a fugal
subject, which he worked out in a mas
terly way in about a quarter of an hour,
and the vicar was about to commence
reading the lesson when the inexhausti
ble organist started a second subject,
and this he developed in the same ab
struse, elaborate manner as the first.
The congregation at tho end of half
an hour began to show signs 41 weari
ness. Tho vicar beckoned to Mr. Bish
op and begged him to stop the too prolix
"Oh," replied the organ builder, "I
can soon stop him if you give me au
thority and will take the consequences."
He approached the organ blower, and
holding up half a rrown he said hur
riedly: "Come and take this. I am just
Tho blower pumped the bellows full
and made for the half crown. Bishop
detained him nntil the wind went out
with a suck and a grunt, and poor Wes
ley was left high and dry in the middle
of his double fugue.
Qnallflcmtiona Keeded For Consulship,
Anybody at all familiar with the du
ties of an American consul, anybody
who knows what is expected of him by
the department of state and what he is
called upon to do by the public, will
agree that he should neither be the prod
uct nor the victim of capricious politi
cal partisanship. He should be appoint
ed upon his merits after careful exami
nation and retained upon the same ba
sis. - There should be a career for tho
consul. There should lie reward for
merit, and he should suffer for incompetency.
Primarily the consul should be a gen
tleman, meaning thereby an honorable
and educated man, familiar with the
amenities and graces of good society.
The next and absolutely necessary re
quirement should be an intelligent
knowledge of the language of the post
to which he is assigned. He need not
be a professor of German or French or
Spanish or Italian, but he slum id be
able to speak and write intelligently
the language of the country to which
he is commissioned. Scribner s.
