CRIME IN PARIS.
Detectives Are Advancing Theories to
Account For Death.
PARIS, June 2. In spite of the
affirmations of the police that the
Steinhell affair belongs in the cate
gory cf vulgar crimes, all the amateur
detectives of Paris are advancing
fantastic theories to account for the
strangling to death of Adolphe Stein
heil and Mme. Japy, his mother-in-law,
in Steinheil's studio, last Sun
day morning, and many of the Paris
ian newspapers are pandering to the
French love of romantic sensational
ism by persisting in their intimations
that the crime is shrouded in deep
mystery. They emphasize particular
ly the conduct of the man-servant,
Couillaud, in not descending from his
quarters when he heard unfamiliar
sounds, and the failure to discover
the footprints of the assassins outside
(the house. The absence of any evi
I dence of a struggle, the strange posi
tions in which the bodies were found
Mme. Steinheil's insignificant injuries
and her retraction of the statement
that she recognized one of the mur
derers as a model who had worked for
her husband, together with Chief of
Detectives Hamard's sudden reticence
concerning the result of the examina
tion and investigation, lend some col
or to the theory that sensational de
velopments are possible.
ine autopsies on tne Dociies were
held today, at the conclusion of which
the examining magistrate announced
that the death of the victims was due
The autopsies proved there had
been no struggle between the assas
sins and their victims, and the bodies
were devoid of marks of violence ex
cept where the cords had been drawn
around their necks. The belief is em
pnasized tnat the perpetrators were

No Need of Suffering From Rheuma
It is a mistake to allow rheumatism
to become chronic as the pain can
always be relieved and in most cases
a cure effected by applying Chamber
Iain's Pain Balm. The relief from
pain which it affords is alone worth
many times its cost. It makes sleep
and rest possible. Even in cases of
long standing this liniment should be
used on account of the relief which it
affords. 25 and 50 cent sizes for sale
by Frank Hart and leading druggists.
Any mother who has had exper
ience with this distressing ailment will
be pleased to know that a cure may
be effected by applying Chamberlain's
Salve as soon as the child is done
nursing. Wipe it off with a soft cloth
before allowing the babe to nurse.
Many trained nurses use this salve
with best results. For sale by Frank
Hart and leading druggists.
