Recently was published the story of the
express robbery in Missouri and of the
manner in which the robbers bound, parred
and carried a woman who had become coi:-
nizaut of their crimes over the bridge at
St. L ouis ; of how, in a moment of supreme
agony, when about to bo hurled over iuto
the Mississippi river, with an iron weight
attached to her, she displaced the bag from
her mouth and raised an alarming cry that
caused the villains to leave their victim and
seek safety for themselves in flight. The
St. Louis hcpuhUcan adds this sequel to
the story :
Edward Deal, alias Wilson, one of the
North Missouri express robbers, arrived
from Cincinnati, iu charge of an officer.
Leai is a mere youth, tall, rather light build
and of not a pleasant contcnance. About
eleven o clock the colored woman whom the
robbers tried to murder,

Deal, belore being led in, pulled his slouch

in the most abject manner, but said never

the woman then begun to relate in more

Her description was most vivid of how,

consultation, they stripped her entirely
naked, and bouud her hand and foot, leav
ing lur lying on the floor. Then came the
frightful discussion as to whether they
should shoot her, cut her throat, or drown
her, it being an agreed fact that either course
must be pursued. She was particularly
vindictive toward Deal, because he was up
to that time a total stranger to her, and
vet he was the most abusive to her, and in
sisted on putting a pistol in her mouth and
blowing her braius out, and then leaving
her in the room. She says he would oc
casionally come up to where she was lying
and kick her in the side or head by
way of a joke, making some jovial remark
meanwhile. Once he measured the coal
box to see whether her body could be stowed
iu it, and then walking up to her he meas
ured off her body, showing that it would
be necessary to cut her iuto three pieces,
the last cut coming just where her head
joined her neck. "When he reached this
point he drew his finger nail across her
utck, scratching a mark to cut by, as he
told her. They threw her on to the bed,
then rtdled her oft on to the floor and ap
plied chloroform several times, evidently
desiring to studefy her by bruises, without
drawing biood. Deal at one time paced up
and down the floor, with hands behind him,
irivino- h iJcas as to how the murder had
best Lc done, and every time he came to
where she was lying he gave her a kick, as
though it facilitated his reasoning. Once
he stooped down, took a lot of her hair off
and threw it into the stove, laughing at
the way it burned. Then, seeming to like
that sort of a joke, he held her mouthopen
while he took out her set of false teeth,
which he also threw into the stove, remark
ing diabolically that he "never knew a nig
ger s teeth would crackle hke that. Alter
the men tired out of this, they relieved
each other while they went to dinner, and
finally, just after dark, one of them put her
on his back, they having dressed her in
men's clothes, and carried her down to the
buggy to take her to the bridge for drown
NAILED TO DEATH.
Frey, made the following startling state
On the evening of the 3d of February,
lSGO, about dusk, I escaped from the
House of Correction in tlm city. Being
afraid of falling in with the gens d'arms, I
climbed into one of the large liuden trees
in front of the small saw mill at Ffaffen
berg. I could look into the attic window,
which was lighted. I saw in it a young wo
man laying asleep in bed ; a few minutes
later this man entered on tiptoe ; he seized
the young woman's head, and with a ham
mer deliberately drove a nail into her head.
She writhed a moment and then expired,
lie covered the spot where he had driven
the nail in with her dense hair, and then
left. I was so horror-struck that I was
unable to move or speak for several min
utes. I fled an hour afterwards, aud
crossed the Alsatian frontier. I positvely
identify this man as the murderer of the
young woman. I did not tell this before
because I was afraid that, beiug an ex-con-
vict, my story would not be credited.
The accused gentleman had listened to
this horrible charge with visible agitation.
He gave his name as Berthold Humbert,
and said he had left Kaiserlantern iu ISCu,
having been a school teacher there,- and
rn t r hit A rrL- wlinvA 1 1 n li-iV' o
music teacher. He denied the charge,
but his conduct was so suspicious that he
was kept in custody. On the following
morning the remains of the unfortunaie
woman, the miller's daughter, Juliet Beh
rcus, were exhumbed, and in her skull
the fatal nail was found. The sight of the
skull, with the nail in it, caused Berthold
Htuubret to confess that he had killed her, as
well as four other young girls, on the same'
day, at PfafFenbcrg. He refused to say
what his motive had been,

and prepartions made for the funeral. In
the mean time some of the physicans who
examined the body pronounced the case
one of suspended animation. Neverthe
less, wise counsel insisted that life was
extinct and the funeral preparations went
on. On the following "Wednesday the
funeral ceremonies took place. The doubt
in the case, as a matter of course, con
tributed from the ranks of the curious an
unusually large number of attendants upon
the solemn occasion.
After the ceremonies at the church were
over, some of the physicians and friends
protested against the interment, as there
was little or no discoloration in the "corpse,"
while an indentation in the flesh by the
application of a finger caused a change of
color, which was considered a sure indica
tion that the vital spark still found a lodg
ment in the tenement of clay. - The body
was carried back home and placed in a
warm room, but the dead did not arise,
neither was there any
tion or disagreeable odor
However, on last Saturday, one week from
the supposed death, the body was deposited
in the grave but was not covered with
earth there still being a disposition to
give the dead man a chance, in case he
should return to life. Our last information
was on Thursday, of the present week, at
which time the grave was still left open,
and there were many who yet believed
that Ilause was not dead, but in a trance.
It is reported of the man that he, upon a
former occasion, several years since, lay in
a trance three days-, aud again returned to
his former self. It is also said that he had
frequently remarked that when he died
he would return to life again in two weeks.
There are those who believe in Ilause'sr
prediction, and all such will expeet to see
him rise from his grave to-day this being
the fourteenth day since he left his friends
in a quandary as to whether be was dead
or merely sleeping.
Tne Buddha Crab.
about to corpse.
Bev. C. W. Everaid writes to Land
ami Water that he was, two years ago, in
the northeast of China, and was then told
that the natives there not unfrequently
caught some small crabs which have a most
ridiculous face on one side. They call them
the Buddha crabs. The face is very distinct,
and looks like a very jovial old fellow much
given to wine.
The crab is the size of the top of the
thumb : the claws are very small. The;
nearest approach to it is the masked crab
sometimes found in the British seas. One
of these was exhiibifed alive in the
aquarium of the zoological gardens, iu
18G0. I think it would puzzle even Mr.
Darwin to account for this extraordinary
Tcsemblance to the human face on the back
of a crab. This crab comes from China,
and, strange to say the markings on his
back exactly resembled the face of an ugly
old Chinaman. The eyes are closed, but
they are oblique to the face, and are
surmounted by heavy eyebrows. The noso
is rounded and flattened ; at each corner
there is a warty projection. The mustache
is curled exactly like the mustache we see
on a Chinaman. The mouth seems ready
to open and swallow any quantityof food.-

ment for lime in the eye. He says : A
colored man came to me in intense agony,
some unslaked lime having got into his eye.
That the lime must be neutralised at all
hazards I felt certain. I chose sulphuric
acid. I pnt one drachm and a half of the
diluted acid in a four ounce graduate, filled
it with water, and told him to wash his eye
with the liquid. He did as lie was told,
and was relieved almost immediately. Then
I made him rinse his eye with pure water,
and after that I told him to anoint it with
olive oil and to continue the application for
some time. To-day he is almost well, and
can see with his eye again. In another

A New York School Teacher Charged
With Killing Several Young Women.
On the third of February, 18GC, several
iris were murdered in a mysterious man
ner at PfafFenbcrg, near Kaiscrslantern, in
Rhenish Bavaria. Among them were Miss
Juliet Shcffer, daughter of a wealthy mil
ler, who was found to have been strangled
to death during her father's absence froni
his house. The police made efforts for the
discovery of guilty parties, but not the
slightest clue was obtained. The affair was
almost forgotten, when a thrilling incident
during a performance at the Kaiscrslantern,
not only brought it again into vivid light,
but also led to the discovery of the murder
er of a number cf young creatures.
On that occasion Donizetti's "Daughter
of the Regiment" was played. During the
second act a loud cry resounded. Then a
man rose, and, pointing to a well-dressed
irentleman in a proscenium box, he shout
ed : 'Toilce ! arrest that man 1" A great
unroar ensued. Three or four officers asked
tho shouting man what he meant. Point-
in"- airain to the above mentioned gentle
man. he said : "Arrest him I He is the
murderer of 186G !" This added to the
excitement. The gentleman in the prosce
niuin box, upon hearing what had occurred,
turned pale, and said that the man who
had called him a murderer must be insane
