well. Tho document is headed 'The
Forsythc Case,' and thus it reads:
"Twenty years ago Ansel Forsythe
dthy m -reliant, who persisted,
in spite of the ravages of a terrible dis
ease, in carrying on a great and profit
able business. The rheumatism had
t ;-t- d one of bis legs out of shape and
i de him a helpless wreck at 43. Ho
sii fei rig 1 Ides from a nameless
. which wasted him away bit by
bit and bn tight him each year fearfully
near: r to the grave, Personally he was
anabli t. havo an active superintendence
of his affairs, atel the work was done

v ho had formerly been his private sec
; ta .. . a man anscrupulons and with
ool any religions convictions whatever,
but who, for tho reason that he came of
h ancestry, was nevertheless called
the Jew.
"1 he Jew was undoubtedly a man of
preal I denl -, for he managed the mer
chant's affairs to such advantage that
tl" ;. rospen -1 beyond his expectations.
For thai reason the Jew is said to havo
c mi Idi red the property which grew up
and r hi caro as morally his own.
"The merchant had remained a bach
elor until v. il along in years, when ho
married a fragile beauty, who died in
giving birth to a female child. This
child was called Ethel and was her fa
ther s idol. In the will, made Immediate
ly ft r her mother's death, he settled
all his prope 'fy npou her. This wits de
cidedly not to the .lew's liking, but ho
wn ti circumspect a man to permit
I feelings to be seen. He played a
very di Bp game.
W . m i to ' hild was not mote than
a year old, he persuaded the merchant
that ho ought to marry again. The poor
d irmed man would have been littlo
likely tu have followed his advice, but
great pr nurowas brought to bear upon
him. Mi dical men were found who did
not scruple to tell him that marriage
would undoubb dly prolong ins life. Ho
thi u oonsi nted to the sacrifice.
"All this while prospective matri
mony had been to him a sort of abstract
idi i, but this decision narrowed it down
to a reality. And it now occurred to
him that to many one needed a wom
an. IL ro ho was, an unsightly, twisted
creature, morbidly sensitive to his own
di e ts. Who would marry him? Noth-
pi r, said Die Jew, than to find
a desirable lady.
"He proved this by presenting to him
the next day his own sister.
Miss Rosenfel was very young al
most a child in years fascinating, and,
they told him, as pure as tho driven
snow. At any rut , -lie soon showed that
sh had no objections to making n sacri
lice of herself mi tho altar of Hymen.
She became Mrs. Forsythe.
"The next month appeared a new cod
icil In the merchant's will. A third of
bis vast property! in tho event of Mh
death, was to bo left to his widow. En
vious people say that tho Jew made B
bargain with his sister whereby sho
wot to receive this third and leave hini
free to gain if lie could the other two.
How f she actually assisted him may
never bo known.
"It was evident that the merchant
could not live long.' After his second
marriage lie foiled rapidly, One day a
shocking thing occurred. Littlo Ethel,
the merchant's idoL then 18 months

old, was stolen iut mysteriously in the
rfead of night almost from her nurse's
arms. The house had been broken into
and many articles of value had been
taken. So the object of the kidnapers
appeared to be self evident. They had
stolen the child hoping to extort vast
sums from the merchant as a ransom.
The dying man was wild with grief.
He commanded tho Jew, the medium
through whom ho transacted all his
business, to use the most effective meas
ures for the immediate rescue of his
darling. But, though much money was
expended and a vast amount of work
performed, every claim of a discovery
of the missing one proved, when hunt
ed up. to be an imposture. The Jew had
on infallible test of which the world
km w nothing. An accident had necessi
tated the amputation of one of the Iocs
of the child's left foot.
"The merchant's hope that he might
still see his child kept hiin alive for
years, but the time came when the phy
sicians said that he must die. Home
weeks before his decease he called his
lawyer, im old and trusted friend, to
ask his advice in a most important mat
ter. As the result of that advice the
merchant for the third time altered his
will. The lawyer mistrusted the Jew,
but flw merchant to the la hold blind
ly to his faith in his integrity, stilltiie
counselor persuaded hint easily enough
to protect his child iu the strongest
manner. The will as then framed pro
vided that tWO-thirds of his fortune
should go to his widow, and the other
third, with the exception of a stated
Sum, given to the faithful Jew, was to
be held in trust by the lawyer and other
honorable gentlemen for his dnughtor
EtbeL If, at the end of !!0 years, ghe
had not been heard from, her share of
the property, which amounted iu nearly
$000, OUO, was to go to various chari
table institutions. This will was made
on April 14,1875, signed and seale d in
the presence of witnesses. Un April .!1
of thu siune year the lawyer was hastily
summoned to att nd Mr. Forsythc, who
Was dying, and who, apparently in per
fectly sano mind, told him that, having
decided at the last moment again to ill
tor the will, he had done so iu a codicil,
which he only desired him to examine
as to its legality and force. Tin-re could
be no doubt about that. The codicil had
been added in the Jew's handwriting
and was countersign d by three servants
iu the house, who, in the eye of tho law,
were disinterested witnesses, It was cer
tainly legal, bur the startling nature of
the alteration alarmed the lawyer and
aroused his darkest suspicions. It re
voked the provisions of tho previous
clause regarding his daughter's legacy,
reduced tho number of years the money
was to be held for her from lit) to 10 and
made tho provisional legatee, in the
event of her not being found at tho ex
piration of that time, instead of the
charitable institutions, the Ji v. himself.
"The lawyer did not let this pass
without remonstrance, but the dying
merchant refused to alter the testament.
"I owe everything to my good Felix,'
he said, referring to the Jew. 'Why
should you envy him?' But so certain
with the lawyer of the oxcrcise of undue
influence upon the merchant's mind
that after his death ho hunted up a dis
tant relative and persuaded him to dis
pute the will. The case was tried in
court and resulted in a triumph for the
Jew. The will held.
"imtel Forsyte died April .'3, 1S75.
The Quart decided In favor of the legal
ity of the will in October of tho follow
ing year, and on that day the Jew dis
appeared personally from the field of
w:ur and transacted such business as it
was necessary to transact with reference
to the Inist property iu the hands of
the executors through his solicitor. Mr.
Forsythe's old lawyer naturally drew a
sigh of relief when matters assumed
this quiet state, from which they did
note em likely to emerge for at least;
10 years, Rut he drew this breath alto
gether too soon. The moment the status
of the will was settled by the court a
now complication arose. The same Im
postors Who had before appeared and
new ones who had come into the posses
sion of the necessary facts began to im
personate tho lost Ethel and to set up
successive claims to the property. Most
of them were so ridiculous on the face
that they did not merit sober considera
tion. Others were more shrewdly plan
ned and gave tho executors much trou
ble. If falso witnesses could have per
jured their way to wealth, the property
would have been wrested from the i xeo
utors long ago, but fortunati ly the Jew's
secret was a secret still, locked up in
the breasts of half a dozen people whose
interests bade them not to speak. When
the left foot of the claimant was bared,
tho chances of BUCcess vanished like
smoke before a high wind.
"'A peculiarity,' said one, 'of this
child's ankle renders your claim defect
ive. The real child had a malformation
which you do not possess. ' So they had
brought ascrippll sand joint dist uses by
the score. Unfortunately for them, they
believed what we told them too implic
itly. After the examination by our phy
ridan and the positive manner in which
he told them that there was no founda
tion for their claims, there were few
WA0 dared risk the penalties for perjury
by .bringing tho caso to court. Our pri
vate tribunal generally settled the mat
ter. The few who dared to risk a legal
trial have had the leisure to repent
their folly in a prison. But all this took
timo and work and was expensive. Tho
will expressly stipulated that the costs
of research and legal protection should
bo taken from the trust property tself,
and in 10 years there expenses alono
have more than eaten up tho interest on
the money, so that tho trust property to
day does not amount to quite $100,000.
"So matters stood on the 21st day of
April lapt past. On that day the skite
was clean. There was not an unsettled
claim pending. The last 'Jthel Forsytho
had been disposed of, and there was
nothing most to bo done. Ten years hav
ing elapsed since the dato of the will
and the lost dimghter not being forth
coming, Felix BOsenfel hud a clear titlo
to her property, The lawyer expected
daily a call from ids solicitor. Tho duys
went by, and ho did not come. The pn
pen were prepared, the property was
ready, but no Jew. He did not conic.
In fact, there was a groat hue and cry
raised about this matter, for the Jew
had disappeared as suddenly and com
pletely from his home and his acquaint
ances as if, unseen and alone, he had,
like Elijah, been translated into heaven.
He had gone out cue nighton an errand.
Ho had never returned
"Meantime what was to lieeonio of
the Forsythe prop! rty? The will was
dear and explicit on this point. In case
of tho Jew s death and the nonappear
ance of the missing heiress the trust
funds reverted, us before, to tho charities.
The trustees only awaited proof of the
Jew's death to lift this burden off their
shoulders. Then, like a thunderbolt out
of a el ar sky, a last and most danger
ous Ethel Forsythe appeared upon the
scene. This girl had been brought up by
a certain George and Mary Stevenson iu
the country as their own daughter. They
now declared that in her infancy the
child had been placed ifl tlieir hands by
u certain Leander Dye, who had paid
them royally for her support. An affi
davit, sworn our by Dye before a justice
of the peace, averred that ho had stolen
the child from Ansel Forsythe's house
iu hope of a ransom, had been terrified
by the results, of his deed, and had been
afraid ever since to produce her through
fear of tho Jew.
"So far the oase was simpler and more
straightforward, but not more plausible,
than some of its predecessors. But the
physician's test threw the executors into
confusion. Miss Stevenson's left foot
met the requirements of the case. The
third toe had been amputated. At once
there arose A dispute among the execu
tors Some were for admitting her claim
without further Inquiry, but the good
sense of the others prevailed, and the rigid iuveatigation ensued. A
choice list of the best physicians iu the
city was tuadn up, each of whom was
to make a separate examination of the
scar left by the amputation and return
to the executors his opinion ns to its
ago. The opinions varied greatly, but
the average result was oertainlyof a
character to justify our worst suspicions.
Tho general verdict placed the date of
the Wound within a year, and there WSJ
but one voice to tine belief that the am
putation, instead of being the intelli
gent and careful work of a physician,
was the bungling performance of a per
son ignorant of the first principles of
surgery. The physician who hod operat
ed upon the real Ethel was dead, but
his standing and knowledge of his pro
fession were nndmfbtedly of the frost or
der. Hero at the outset was a
flaw in tho Stevenson case, but
could ! followed up information was
obtained which let the light iu upon
the whole mystery. Whilo the exocutors
Wi n getting over the shook of( the firt.t
astonishment cuusod by these develop
ments and were preparing to proceed to
extreme measures the last of tho For
sythe impostures came to a sudden ter
mination by the flight of all concerned
in the conspiracy,
"Such is the remarkable Forsythe
caso as wo know it and as the world
knew it a week ago today. This is the
outer and surf. ice history. I havo added
n brief statement of the secret history
as tlie i vents of the past few days havo
ntade t hem known to us.
"Ethel Forsythe was stolen by tho
Tew himself. From the dav of her ab
duction she led a forlorn and unsatisfac
tory life. Sho was brought up under the
false namo of Annette Dye. She travel
ed about tho country, believed and be
lieving herself to be the daughter of a
moral coward whom tho Jew had suc
ceeded in getting completely under his
thumb. She might havo been the daugh
ter of that moral coward still had not
an aceidt nt revealed to her a part of
the truth of her situation. She commit
ted the Indii en til in of telling this knowl
edge to her pretended father. He flew
with th" startling m ws of her fatal in
formation to tho Jew. At first the Jew
was paralyzed with fear,hut he wa.-. too
determined and unscrupulous a man to
permit the schemes of years to be dissi
pated to the winds without a struggle
Ho took prompt measures, terrible
means, desperate means!
"It is perhaps useless to inquire into
the Ji w's motives for using the precise
method for the removal of the heiress
from his path to which he resorted. At
any rate, he wrote tho letter purporting
to come from the Hapgood wdmata and
caused the unwilling Dye to aid him in
his nefarious work. But he swore a sol
emn oath to that poor, weak gentleman
that his only purpose in bringing the
heiress to the sea road was to frighten
her a little, and that he would not harm
a hair of her head. Think of the utter
depravity uud unscrupulousness of a
mind like that! Observe, gentlemen of
the jury, the grim humor in the postscript
of his letter, in which he says, 'I may
be late, hut 1 shall not fail to keep my
appointment. '
"The Jew was a monstrosity of heart
h rauess. He could have chosen no safer
method for a deed of violence, as tho
event proved, and if ho had been suc
cessful In his search of her pockets for
the letter he hud written, which she
carried in tho bosom of her dress, clews
to the perpetrator of the assault would
have been ntirely wanting. But with
all hi; trouble his first attempt was un
successful. He tried again. In tho sec
ond trial he wus thrown from the win
dow of the roar room of the upper story
of Co Ballavoine place while trying to
make an escape ly way of tho roof.
"The investigation into tho causo of
the disappearance' of Felix Rosenfel
failed from lack of evidence. Tho rea

besides tho criminal himself who held
the clew to the matter would nut speak.
Thin person was Mrs. Forsythe. It is en
tirely outiiido tho scope of this simple
statement of foots to entor into a de-'
scription either of tho character or tho
life of this oorrupt and unprincipled
woman. Somo time wo shnli know tho
whole truth. Already enough is known
to make us hold our breath with won
der and horror. This woman led two
lives. In one life she was the model of
respectability and virtue. In tho other
sho had no scruples and no decency. Tho
mystery is how she was ablo so long to
hide the fact that sho played this dual
role from the keen and suspicious gluncu
of society. The reason can idouo be found
in her oxtraordiuary ability and cuu
uing. This woman was a paragon of de
ceit and duplicity. There can no longer
bo any doubt that poor Forsythe was de
ceived even as to her purity. Miss Ste
venson is her own daughter, and the
people who brought her up told ono
truth when they said that they had al
ways been paid large sums for tho
child's board, though tho fact that this
money was paid Leander Dye, or that he
even know them before the necessities
of the conspiracy brought these precious
people together, is entirely improbable.
"Mrs. Forsythe alono knew of her
brother's connection with Leander Dye.
She alciio knew that Mr, Dye had been
with him on the day of his disappear
ance. Sho alone suspected the truth.
Tho use which slio made of these sus
picions has already been placed before
you. After years of secret hate uud feur
and bitterness, when the wretched Dye,
in a moment of frenzy at the thought
of ids own degradation, dared to strike
the blow that rid him forever of his un
scrupulous master, he fell at once by
virtue of this very deed under the tyran
ny of a still sterner hand From being
u tool hi tho grasp of the man he be
came a tool in the grasp of tho woman,
and the woman was less luuient than
tho man.
"In a private room on the second floor
of tlio Forsythe mansion, on Livingston
street, on the bOth day vf January last,
tho unfortuuuOc child, who for the pre
vious two weeks bad beai known to tho
household as Mrs. Forbyiho'snione, took
ether mid submitted to be operated upon
with a cold stool chisel and a redhot
curling iron. Sir. Dye, who assisted at
that operation, was prostrated by tho
effects for days. No more need be said
for the fortitude aud strength of pur
pose of the woman who plqyed the dnal
rule of saint and sinner.
"On the Ut of Jiuio Leander Dye,
after placing his valuably knowledge of

portion of the i'orsytho estate remain
ing in their hands to Ethel Forsythe,
now Mrs. Julian Maxey, and her heirs
and as,siKiis forever. "
The lawyer's voice ceased abruptly,
and there wus silence in the room.
Tho rivor glistened in the sua Tho
summer wind rustled the. curtains ut
the windows.
Miss Maxey smiled.
The artist looked in a grave, wistful
way at his wife.
p As for Mrs. Msxey, thero was a bright
light iu her wonderful eyes,
As Maxey went through tho narrow
passage between the two rooms ho mtS

from its resting place on his shoulder:
"Dearest husband, it is all yours I
