As n Combination of the Iiertillon
Method it Enable Identification.
From the Westminster Review.
By a combination of the Bertillon
method of measurement with the finger-print
system any prisoner can be
identified with almost absolute certain
ty and In a short space of time. Mr.
Galton calculates that the chance of
two finger-prints being Identical is less
than 1 In 64,000,000,000. and when we
consider the relatively small numbers
of the criminal population, and that
other personal evidence would bo avail
able in any doubtful case, mistaken
Identity ought now to be a thing of the
past. The method of Indexing finger
prints proposed by Mr. Galton is at first
sight somewhat complicated, but with
a little practice we are told that about
five minutes would suffice for the com
plete verification of any one of l',CU2 sets
forming a directory.
A specimen directory of 300 sets has
been given, together with numerous
fingerprints. The method of obtaining:
the prints is to press the thumb or fin
ger upon a plate of copper which, has
previously been coated with a very thin
film of printer's ink. The inked fingers
are then pressed or rolled upon the card
which Is kept a a record.- Although
fingerprints have been used as a sign
manual from the earlist times, yet it' I
only recently that thy have been
studied from a scientific point ot view,
and the evdence accumulated is as yet
Insufficient to enable us to realize their
value to the anthropologist. Now that
a good system of classification has been
worked out. it Is to be hoped that ob
servers will multiply rapidly, and that
the bulk of the material at our disposal
will soon be considerable.

A Peculiar Exuerii uce of a Man Who
Has Wounded in the Civil War.
From the fhlcaso Record.
j Colonel Sidney Cooke, of Herrington,
Kas one of the managers of the Na
tional Soldiers' home, tells of a peculiar
experience in the army during the civil
war. At the outbreak of the war be
was a strapping New England boy,
with strength and vitality which stood
him well during his army life.
After talking i.ait In several engage
ments, Colonel Cooke was shot In the
head and left on the battlefield us dead.
The Federals retreated from the field
and the Confederates soon occupied It.
Colonel Cocke, who was then a private,
was uroused to consciousness by some
one tugging at his boots. The boots
were very fine and the pride of his boy
ish heart, having been given to hltn by
the dear ones at home.
"Ain't you dead, Yank?" asked tho
Confederate, as he ceused tugging to
remove the boots from the feet of the
On being assured that Cooke was not
dead a compromise was effected. The
Confederate brought the Union Boldler
some water and carried hltn to a Con
federate surgeon. In return he se
cured the coveted boots.
Cooke had a lonff convalescence, and
tlnully recovered sufficiently to be Bent
to Andersonville prison, where he suf

THE Royal Baking Powder makes sweeter, lighter, finci

dividuals of its species are known to
have attained, in their habitat in the
Himalayas, Burniah nnd the Malacca
peninsula, the dimensions of a large
tiee. from fifty to seventy-five feet In
height. The Madras specimen Is sur
rounded by a strong railing, which
bears the sign: "Dangerous; all persons
are forbidden, to touch the leaves or
branches of this tree."
It is, therefore, a forbidden tree In
the midst of the garden, but no one
is tempted to touch It, for It Is known
to be a "burning tree." The name Is a
misnomer, for the tree stings rather
than burns. Beneath the leaves there
are stings comparable to those of net
eles, which, when touched, pierce the
skin and secrete a fluid which certainly
has a burning: effect.
The sting leaves no outward sign,
but the sensation of pain exists some
times for months, and Is especially keen
on damp days, or when the place which
has been wounded Is plunged In water.
The natives in the part of Bur man
where this tree grows are In such terror
of it that they fly when they perceive the
peculiar odor which It exhales. If they
happen to touch it they fall on the
ground and (oil over and over on the

They Were but Trifles, but They
Helped to Unravel a Murder.
From the Chicago Chronicle.
Chicago had a chief of detectives fif
teen or sixteen years ago who compared
In many respects with the best Euro
pean talent. He did some work which
for neatness and adroit application was
equal to anything; that Gaborlau In
vented. I have in mind now a murder
case in which he figured. Some un
known person had shot a farmer living
a few miles out of Chicago through the
heart. The murder happened in the
dead of night and the victim was de
coyed out of the house to meet his
The farmer's wife was suspected of
being a trifle too fond of a dull-witted
farm hand who had been discharged by
the dead man. and was then working
in Chictrgo. This fellow was promptly
placed under arrest. A pawn ticket for
a revolver was found In his pocket. '. It
was a cheap weapon, and very little
significance was attached to the fact
that the man should have owned it and
pawned it at that particular time. He
gave a reasonable account of his move
ments on the night of the crime, and the
murdered mar's wife was firm In her
protestations that she hud not seen him
During the inquest, however, the de
tectives observed that the bullet which
came out of the dead man's heart was
marked in a peculiar way. It had
scratches on one side, as though there
were defects In the pistol from which It
was fired. Examination of the revolver
found in the pawn shop showed two
spots of rust in the chamber near the
muzzle. The detectives llred the weapon
three times Into a barrel of water and
the bails were marked exactly like the
bullet that killed the farmer. A num
ber of other pistols of the same make
and calibre were obtulned and subjected
tu the same test, but none of the other
bullets were marked In the same man
ner as those from the farm hand's pis
tol. It appeared, therefore, that the lat
ter weapon had been used in killing the
man. but while the detective skill that
discovered the damaging fact was loud
ly extolled, shrewd lawyers got hold of
the case tor the defense and succeeded
In getting the man acquitted.
