BROUGHT CRIMES TO LIGHT.
Instances of WherV tho Canvas of an
Artist Led. to a Confession of Guilt.
A Woman's Portrait and .a Stolen
'Afa artist who had suddculy become
almost famous by his production of o
paint In j; exhibited ut the lioyul acad
emy was one day called upon by n
man whoso visit wan productive of tho
most extraordinary and undreamed of
Tho picture represented a lonely
stretch of beach, upon which the sea
was beating In long, creamy rollers. In
the foreground, bending over u dead
body, was a man with a wild expres
sion on his face and with a naked
knife iu his hand. A ship's boat, evl-J
dently Just benched, was also In the
picture, and by the side of the mur
dered uinn was a bag of gold. The pic
ture portrayed tho advent of two cast
aways upon a friendly shore. The one
had murdered the other so that the
treasure might be his.
The painter's visitor was a grny hair
ed, wild eyed man.
"Iu heaven's name, sir," he gasped
out. "how did you lenrn the dreadful
story that you painted? 1 see you
know all. I murdered my muto Hill to
get the money that was tils. I threw
(hls body into the sea, I don't know
wnat impulse leu me to tiie acnuemy.
Tho first thing I saw was your picture
representing the scene that took place
thirty years ago."
Needless to say, the picture had been
the outcome of Imagination. Vet mur
der will out. aud the guilty conscience
of the man who had killed his comrade
for lust of gofd had convinced him
that the painting was no coincidence,
but was Indeed the actual portrayal of
a dastardly and unwitnessed crimes
There is probably no ii-ruiv letter
known in Knglaud than "Jtn Doctor,"
by Luke Kilties, yet there are proba
bly very few people aware of the fact
that that selfsame masterpiece was the
means of bringing to light the per
pet radon of a crime that would other
wise never have been known.
A certain doctor in n large towu com
m it ted suicide, and among his papers
was a letter which ran as follows: "I
have today seen Luke Tildes' 'Doctor.'
The picture represents u medical mau
watching by the bedside of a Child. It
has so haunted me that 1 am going to
take away my own worthless life aud
make a coufessiou at the same time.
When Arthur's" bis brother's "boy
died 1 came into money that my dead
brother had Retried on him. lie died
as all the world .thought of acute pneu
monia. Yet Ids life might have been
saved had I acted, ns Tildes' 'Doctor'
is so evidently doing, with the use of
.all thet skill that lay In my power. I
hastened the boy's eud and so got the
money. I can bear It no more."
A well known artist was commission
ed to paint the portrait of a lady In ex
alted circles win li 'stcd the posses
sion of a 'mo-TUi.; ,ue ewel In the
form of a pom.. i. it. The lady was very
anxious that liiio heirloom should be
included In her portrnit. The nrtlst, of
course, compiled with her request,
Shortly after the painting had been
completed u daring burglary was per
petrated, with tlie' result fhat the lady
lost her heirloom, and no trace of tho
thief or thieves -was forthcoming.
Years passed by, nnd the lady gave up
all hope of ever seeing the precious
Now, It so happened that tho artist
who bad painted the portrait of tho
lady mentioned had occasion to travel
In the course of IiN wanderings be
t came to Bombay a .d. us every visitor
I to that place does, strolled through the
i native bazaar.
I Suddenly his .mention was riveted
' by a piece of wi-iry in a Jeweler's
j shop that seeiu.it UiniVar to him. It
' was a diamond and ruby pendant
i Where had he seen it before? Ho run
i sacked his brain, but could not remeui
lie returned to his hotel and hap
pened to take from his portfolio a
sketch of the portrait he hod mado
years ago of the lady with the petulant.
In a moment the enigma .was solved.
The piece of Jewelry he had seen was
the peculiar-pendant that his fair sit
ter bad been so anxious he should lu
cludo in his portrait. , .
lie hurried off to the chief of police
and told that worthy what he suspect- j
ed namely, tlmt the bnznar ho had
visited contained the long lopt jewel )
of the English lady. Inquiries were at
once set on foot with extraordinary re- i
suits. The Jeweler in the bazaar con- j
fessed to having given years ago a
quite Insignificant sum for the Jewel, j
which he had bought from a stable- '
man In the employ of a neighboring I
rajah. The stableman was sought for ,
aud turned out to be none other than j
a famous English cracksman who had
apparently turned honest but who. i
nevertheless, confessed to having been
the thief of the Jewel jjhat had been
bo miraculously discovered. I'earson's
