A CajlC May UUtty.
HOW A WOMAN'S LOQUACITY LED TO
THE RECOVERY OF A FORTUNE.
Cape May, on the 20th of August,
1 Hi!!), was "partially destroyed by a
terrible conflagration. Among 'the
ruined hotels was the Atlantic, and
one of its guests at the time was Mr.
Charles Bnblcau, a Philadelphia!!,
who had at that moment stored in Ills
trunk tJ'.i.iXK) in currency, with which
he intended to purchase the Diamond
Beach liiiving Park. The flames
wrapped the ill fitted building so quick
ly that Mr. Itublcan failed to secure all
his effects, During the excitement of
the moment lie removed one of his
trunks w hich he fondly believed con
taliied the precious bundle, bnt when
he looked to assure himself of its safe
ty, lie was dtunfounded to discover
fliatlie had picked up the wrong trunk.
It; may well be Imagined that the
blow was almost , a crushing one, . and
it was rendered more poignant by the
fact that, at the moment when he was
congratulating himself Upon its securi
ty, the greedy flames (so be then
thought) were devouring the little pile
of precious paper. One day. many
months after the calamity, and when
the Atlantic had sprung up more
charming from the ashes, its proprie
tor, Mr. Macklll, received a note from
an old servant, announcing that she
had heard all about the $.000, and
that she would at some future time
tell all about It. This Declaration shr--prised
Mr. Rubicon when he heard of
H, and with a fluttering heart he set
about reclaiming his fortune that he
had looked lpon as lost. Detectives
Bartholomew and Duke, old Pliilndel
phftiS but now in the employ ofCape
May city were enlisted, and after a
weary search succeeded in finding the
servant that had given the welcome
intelligence, and who had promised to
explain "In the future." She inform
ed the detectives that a colored waiter
named H. H. Clarke, in the service of
the Atlantic Hotel at the time of the
conflagration, had saved the trunk
from the lire, and she supposed that
"tbat was how he came to get the
money." The detectives then insti
tuted a search, for Mr. Clark, and
found him at length in the service of
the Broadhead House, at the Delaware
Water Gap where on Wednesday he
was found. Clarke openly acknowl
edged that he had received the J9.000,
denying, however, that he had stolen
it, or ol having any Intention to steal
it. and. to make good bis word volun
teered to return every penny ot it.
From his statement, it seems that after
the lire he came to the city and bought
the house No. !)10 Lombard street.
This lie volunteered to turn over, and
with some remaining cash, the full
amount lost bv Mr. Kublcau would
N' restored to him. Today It la add,
Ihe necessary papers were made out
and the property transferred to Mr.
Hubican, Tims was it that Clarke lost

One of the celebrities of the Moscow
ballet lately called upon a local official.
With the ropiest that he would glvo
her the usual tortnal permission to
take a mouth's tour in the provinces
for the benefit of her health, retaining
her Hilary during tlie time of furlough.
The man in office received tier politely,
and asked for her written petutom
" I have no written petition," an
swered the artist ; I hnd no idea that
such a thing was necessary."
"Not necessary, inndam? Why,
nothing can he done without it ! "
" What am I to do, theu? "

of justice, " you have only to deliver

"To whom?" repeated the official,
with a slight smile nt her simplicity.
"To rue, of course! "
And taking the petition which he
had himself dictated, he produced his
spectacles, wiped them carefully, ad
justed them upon his nose, read over
the old document as though it were
perfectly new to him, docketed and
Hied It III due form, and then, turning
to the Impatient dauscilse, said, w ith
