111:111 Hiimetl Jr.cqiKs Carctnc, vvhoso shill
with tho divining rod lius earned him nt lit
tle celebrity uinoii;; the suiierstitioua of his
own coiiiilrjnieii. Alumt thrco years tigo,
in tho vullcy of tho Meusc, five miles from
Seruinjr, in Iiolgiiim, .1 now shaft for a pro
jected coal initio was commenced. The
stock company wore satisfied ihat mi excel
lent quality of mineral lay licncutli them.
Two of their number, MM. Chaitvin nnd
Gamier, wcro npprchensivo tiiat obstaciis
might bo incoiintcrcd in sinking the shaft,
iipproaeliing us it did tho northwesterly
spur of tho Vosgcs, which would miitcrially
detract from the subsequent profit of tho n
terpiisc. M. Chniivin dreatled water, ii
iainier was afraid of a deep band of igneous
rock. Their partners laughed at them.
They sent secretly to a vitiligo near Xordlin
gen, in Wurleinbiirg, for a man named
Jacques Carenie, famous lor his divinations
by means of rfiubdoinancy. Carcmo was
placid over the spot vvheio ground had been
broken for the shaft. "IIo held in his hands
a straight stall' cut in two ; ono extremity of
tho o'lt half was hollowed out, the other
half was shaiicnid and rouuikd nt the end,
and this end was inserted in tho hollow nnd
the -minted stick could rotate in tho cavity
liko a bull in a socket." Almojt as soon ns
lie had placed himself in petition there
was a v iolcnt action of tho stick in tho cavi
ty. IIo boldly asserted that thero was a tre
mendous quantity of water below. Tho two
partners sold out of tho company. The
shaft was proceeded with. At tho depth of
100 feet an citurnious lissiiro or gullet vvn
encountered, almost vvidti enough for n man
to pass through, l'jwn this gullet a stream
of water lushed in upon tho sinker.-; with
tho finco of a liU.'iruct. All progress for a
time was prevented. 51. C'oulson, the most
expei it'iiccd sinker 'in Europe, directed oper
ations. Heavy pumping machinery wish
erected, and a drilt was constructed to carry
this water to the river. Thero ivro four
thirty inch pumps, anil they discharged wa
ter at the rato of 7,!00 gallons per minute.
Thero had never been seen in Europo such
powerful pumping apparatus, Notwith
standing their exceptional rowers, they vvcio
quite inadequate. Tho water flowed in In
greater forco and volume tlinn over. Th
company made up their minds that it Wtt"
useless longer to struggle against a condition
of things that appeared to bo irresistible.
Shortly afterwards, Jacques Careme, by
means of his singular divining rods, discov
ered the perpetratoinof a mysterious murder.
Tho two culprits confessed tho crime, and,
according to sentence, wcro broken upon tho
vvhcil in tho i'laco des Terraux, ferning.
This triumph of his art iniido Carcmo for a
time the popular Idol, Naturally, however,
criminals of all classes regarded I1I111 with
tho deepest aversion. At any moment ho
might bo Induced to exerc.su his skill in de
tecting their crimes. They, therefore, form
ed 11 conspiracy to murder Iiim, but receiv
ing timely warning ho buminarily quit the
country. During the early part oflast win
ter ho arrived in Now York and proceeded
tn Sag llnrbor, where he has a married sis
ter. On Christmas eve n neighbor named Ay
toun, while absent from home hud his hoiiso
broken into und a quantity of wearing ap
parel stolen. Tho fact was mentioned to
Oarcme, "1'erhaps I may bo able to discover
tho thief," ho quietly said. On reaching the
room w hero tho theft had been committed
tho rods revolved rapidly in his hand, und
they continued to rolato In his fingers us
long ns he remained wltnlii, nnd also when
he ciimo outside, nml continued in a certniu
direction, but ceased to turn if he diverged
from It in tho sllghest degree. Guided by
his rod, Carcmo went from lano to hiuo in
tho direction of Aiimgnnsct, Thero ho en
tered n cottage nnd jissertcd with warmth'
conltjjtf to thcn-severnllon of the occupant,
that tUi thief had entered his room sometime
tltiriihr tho previouii day. The man said
thntt fas Impossible, ns ho hud been from
lion Jjc 'id the door had been locked. "Then
tho .yfniloiv was open," said Carcmo, ennfi
dciilrj Pure enough the window bad been
nppti.'i The hotuo had been entered and nn
old-'iiiiliinetl gold watch, tho gift ota form
er cmpbiyer, stolen frntn a bureau drawer In
the little bed room, Johnson, iho owner of
tho watch, now joined Careme In the quest
and li( gar. d with open mouth nt tho queer
perforniunees of the rliabdoinanccr nn I his
whirligig sticks. The track ltd to l'at
Hampton, nnd to a dilapidated looking hut
In th'aT jdace. The sticks rotated violently
as tlicV npiiroached the door and knocked.
Whoija voiio in-ido cried "who's there?"
Cnremc was so much agitated that ho near
ly mulled. The door was opened ; the thief
stood Pcftire them, " Hectirc the man," said
Careme, "it is he." Tho fellow, after tho
most positive denial, was finally overcoino
by hli f nperstitioiH fears and confessed tho
burglaiies. The clothes nnd the watch wcro
product I, and on the thief's promising fu
ture reformation, with tears in his eyes, he
was niit given up to justice.
On tho Uth of June Inst past a wealthy
family in Ilicksville, Long Island, missed
froiri'ftio family safe a quantity of valttnblo
jewelry, consisting of diamond rings, gold
bracelets, watches, chains, etc., to the value
of over $7000.
The safe was intact. The lock was
perfect. Tho key was in safe keeping.
It was evidently no burglar's work ;
nor could tho servants, of whom there
wero two, have bad any hr.'id in the robbery.
No one could havo opened tho safo unless
they knew the combination. Thero wcro
only four persons who knew it the father
and mother and the son and daughter, both
(tin last named of whom have attained their
stnajori'v. fb'or'i, the son. N a steady, re
llcious young man, a strict tr-etolaler nnd a
patron' of Young Men's Christian Associa
tions. Ho hud frpo access to the s.ife and
its contents at nil times. So had his sister.
They had no inducement fur ahVtyactiiig
by st&ilth what they could have pJsesed
themselves of openly, He-id--, iho key of
the safe had been locked up in tho old gen
tleman's writing desk for three weeks, and
had been last used in the presence of the
diughter, when placing a bracelet that had
been recently repaired, in the safe.
A private detective of some experience
was consulted, lie was greatly perplexed.
His suspicions not unnaturally fell upon
soino one of the six inmates of the house.
Ho finally dismi-sid the theory as untena
ble. ''Somcof the family must be somnam
bulists," he laughingly suggested. He could
discover no trace of the jewcliy in any of
the New York or Iirnoklyn stores where
such valuables were likely tn find their way,
and he assured the family that it was a ease
which time and perseverance alone could
solve. Tho subject meanwhile was kept a
profound see.ct. The two servants were
placed under strict espionage. George, the
son, had been to S.ig Harbor on business on
tho first day of tho current month, and ho
casually heard sonio of the details of Car
eino's discovery of the stolen clothes and
watch. IIo determined to see tho rhabdo
mancer. Ho beheld a quiet little man, with
11 soft, violet cyo and (luxeii hair, with small
artistic lingers a.id a neck like a woman.
IIo spoke lOuglish remarkably well for a
foreigner, but was unwilling to enter into
details rc-pecting ills own performance in
Germany mid Uolgiuin. Ho said it was a
divinely imparted power, nnd therefore, not
a subject for self-glorification. The story of
the inysteriou.ss.ife robbery was told. Carcmo
listened with interest. "I cannot tell, but
peihaps I may bo able to nssist in some
way." That night ho slept in tho Hicksyillo
mansion. After breakfast next morning ho
was conducted to the scene jf tho robbery,
with tho rods placed between his two ex
tended palm?. Tliero was 110 motion ds ho
traversed the corridor and a-cended the stair
way. Hut when ho reached the small safe,
tho rods rotated tremulously and the man's
pulse could bo plainly perceived to riso as if
be had an accc-s of fever.
Tho same motions nnd symptoms mani
fested themselves ns ho proceeded down tho
back staircase incd'hy tin) servants. Then
the trail led through a window aim into tho
garden. Tho robber had come from with
out! The trail led by an eccentric circuit
to tho railway station. Tho burglar had left
by a train. Three lines of railroad centre
at ilicksville ; which had ho taken? Car
oine said ho would have' to try this by expe
riment Hi mint travel every lino and g-t
out at every station until he recovered tho
track of the fugitive. Ilisssill had never
been before cculVoiitid with tho dillicultics
of a inilroail, and ho was confused. Ho
traveled to Syossct, Cold Spring and North
port on n bleevelcss errand. Then ho tried
WcslUiry, Mincohi, Jamaica and Hrooklyn
whero he recovered tho scent. George, who
accompanied Carcmo 011 this extraordinary
quest, laughed incredulously. It s cmed
mero midsummer maducss. Hut the sticks
rotated and Carcmo's f.ico was llushed with
excitement. They camo to Fulton l'eiry,
croscd, and ii'jaiu tho trace was lost. Car
01110 was troubled nud perplexed. Just then,
howcyer, a strange thought flashed across
the young man's mind. "Como with me,"
said he, and they proceeded to the corner of
Hroadway and Wall street. Again the sticks
began to violently ntalp. Careme led the
way down Wall street, passed Hroad, and
still continued onward). At tho door of a
certain building ho stopped, and proceeded
up stairs, Georgo was so agitated that his
knees could scarcely support him. With
fit ul precision the door of u room was
reached and entered,
Tho young irun's dearest friend wns tho
only iiiiuate. "This is tho man" said Car
cmo. A wild, exciting and painful scene
followed. "Why you have not been at
Hlcksvillo In two years," Haid George, "Yes
I have," was tho guilty confession. Tho ex
citement ot the gambler's tabic, heavy lo--es,
betrayal of friendship theso wcro the
nallt'iH points of tho story, Ho had learned
tho secret of tho combination had abstract
ed tho key from George's pocket, mado n
cast of it and had another manufactured.
While tho sister and her rroVier wcro resid
ing nt his homo in f 00 y tho wretched
gambler procccdttl to III uaville, nud whllo
iho old gentleman am icorgo wcro in tho
house proceeded quietly to rifle tho safe.
Hud he been discovered ho purposed to pass
tho thing oil' as a good practical joke, nnd of
course (ho explanation would havo been ac
cepted. Some of tho goods wilt bo recover

How to Hiimlifotinil 11 Ituhbrr.
It happened upon ono ocrnlnn that your
imcln Trunk had to go to London upon
soino linptiitiint business. I was not In very
good health, nud retired to my bed-room
nboiit two hours before his departure, lie
proinijul to como up nnd wish me good-bye
bc-f'oro hi'startitl, which-would be between
twelve nnd hub o'clock 1 11 the morning. The
mailer which called hlni away whs connected
with the bank hr-rc, which bud just been
burned down j and my hn-b'ind, It scetn.
though I did not knnw it n iho lime, had
many thousand pounds belongitu; to the
concern In his possession, locked up III the
iron s-tfo in our bedroom, when- tho plate
was kept. Ho was bank manager, and re
sponsible for the whole of it. It was winter
and there was a firo in this room, so bright
ami comfortable that I wn in no hurry to
get into bed, but sat up, looking Into the
fiery coals, and thinking about all sorts of
thinss. It wns a little after eleven 'o'clock
when I got into bed, but I did not feel tho
least inclined for sleep even then. I knew
that Frank wmild be coming to wish mo
good-bye prtsenlly; and besides, thero seem
ed to be all sorts of noises about tbo room,
which my foolish car.i always used to hear
when I wns alone at night. You may im
agine, then, my horror, when I heard a
tremendous sncczo within a quarter of an
Inch from me, just behind the head-board
of the bed and between that nnd the wall,
where thero was a considerable spacj.
The only thing, as I believe that saved
my reason Irom departing altogether, when
I first Lcard that terrible sound, was that my
mind clung to the hope that it was, alter all,
but the Mieczo of n cat. Fifty cats together
could not have made such a disturbance, it
is true, for it was the sneeze of a man who
sneezes in spile of himself, and almost shook
the house. Thetir-xtititant the wretch had

"Tho money -the gold tho notes, are
they there?" cried he again, in a terrible
sort of whisper.
"It is all there," replied I, although I
knew nothing about it; "for I would not
deceive you, sir, on any account."
"You had better not," observed tho bur
glar, grimly, "or it will bo all the worso for
you." He produced a key like 0110 my hus
band u-ed, and approached the iron safe;
but as lie did so his guilty car caught a foot
step on tho staircase.
"Who's that?" cried lie.
".My husband, sir," returned I; "but, pray
don't hurt him ; piay."
"Is ho not going to town, then?" cried
the rufliaii with an oath of disappoint
ment. "He is going at 12 o'clock," replied I;
"he is indeed."
"If you tell him, "said tho burglar hoarse
ly "if you breathe but one word of my
presence hero it will bo tho death doom of
you both ;" he had slipped into the alcove,
and drawn tho bed back again to its place
in an instant.
Your Uncle Frank leaned over tho pil
low lo kiss me, and observed how terrified I
"You havo been frightening yourself
about robbers again, I suppose, my silly
"Not I, Frank," leturned I ns cheerfully
as I could ; "I have only a little headache,"
but I said with my fingers so that ho could
plainly read it in tho firelight "For God's
sake, hush ; there's a man behind tho bed
head." Your Undo Frank was ns bold ns a lion,
and had nerves like iron. Hnonly answered,
"where is your sal volatile, dearest?" and
went to the mantel piece to get it. I thought
ho could never havo understood, he spoke
with so much coolness and unconcern, until
I saw his fingers reply as ho tonic up the
bottle : "All right, don't bo afraid I" and
then I was not afraid, or at least not so
"Ho has a life preserver," said I with my
"Your firo is getting rather lovv.Georgev,"
observed he, taking up tho poker, "I must
leave you a good lire to comfort you before
I go." He poked tho fire, nnd left the pok

mo and the bed-head, "I will Just ring tho
bell and sen whether Thomas has got my
purtinanteaii ready. ".Mary." continued he
lo the maid that answered the bell, "send

that errand : "lly Jove! I never travo him
that key ; where is It, Georgey ? I have not
a minute to lose. I- it in your dressing-case
with tho rest thero? I shall bo an ago In
looking for It. 5ilght I ask you to get out
of bed for an instant and show mo which it

I jumped ynu may bo sure, Dicky, quickly
enough, and wns insido the dressing-room,
nnd with tho door locked lu half a

"come in," for Thomas was modestly hesi
tating nt tho chamber door : "thero is sonio

he makes tho least resistance, I'll kill him
with this hot poker,"
Atthcso words tho bed was pushed slowly
outwards, nnd tho burglar, without his crape
mask, nnd with a faco as judo ns nshes, em
erged from hs hiding place. Your Uncle
Frank knew him ut oneo as having been a
bank messenger, who had been turned out
of his situation sinco tho flre,upou suqdclon
"Oh, sir, linvo pity on me," cried he.
"I'm an unlucky dog. If it had not been

in n pioneer shanty saloon, in company with

camp and town.
There was nothing this giant could not

bar when n stranger entered. He was not
more than twenty-five, slenderly built, pale,
with big eyes, delicate features, nnd a hand
like a girl.
Ho stepped quietly up to the bar and
asked for a glass of brandy. The glass was
placed beln'o him, whereupon the bully

"Givo me two glasses of brandy."
The two glasses vvero put out, nnd filled
nnd the bully the third time reached for
ward, took a glass and drunk It. The voting
man paid no attention even to the giant's
pistols and knives.but taking the other glass
drank it and put down a dollar. Then witli
