HOW THRY AKK CAUQHT.
On of the most Atonisiiin
action of human beings, is the ap
titude of fairly honest men to en
gage in nrtirtiecs that ro clearly
criminal, for tho jurKu of gain. A
New York dispatch recently related
how two of the kind were caught.
It ia Still that fkwge V. Ames
carao all the way from Maple valley,
Wash., to bttv some counterfeit
money, lie. readied New York yes
terd.tv morning and iiromntlv wA
t Mil for a brie in a bov, which the
grevn-gooils tieeutatora gave him.
The lax was nuitoed to le (Weil
with counterfeit money. A men wan
proprietor of a saw mill out in Maple
valley. His mill burned down and
when he rebuilt it a few weeks ago
it burned again. Me was in hard
luck and low spirit when n greet t
uoodft eireular fell into his lunula.
Ho entered into correspondence with
the swindlers mid followinc; their
directions, camo to New York by
tho ltaltimore .v Ohio road. Just
Ix-fore the train reached Jersey City
n vouiik man entered the ear, and
then eat down by Ames, remarking
ns ho did bo, "Churchill, .No. S,
thin being tho couiiteifipi that the
swindler had cent him by mail.
After reaching New York they went
by a very rnumliilvout course to a
dingy little room, where Ames was
introduced to an old man, who gave
him a bundle of "counterfeit" notes
to examine. He negotiated for
!?1KX) of bills, and handed over $1-10
for it. lie vtati ln-d the old man
closely na he packed the roll of bills
in a small pine box. The box was
full when Ames was told to write
his name and address on a slip of
paper. Then a neatly wrapjied par
eel was given to him, and he hugged
it under his arm. "Take him to the
train," said the old man; "you had
hotter not take him back to the same
depot; our goods are fo good that
the police would like too well to get
their clutches on some of them."
The messenger took Ames to the
Mott Haven station. It was 11
o'clock yesterday morning when
thev reached there. Ames bought
a ticket to Little Hock, Ark. The
messenger then suggested a parting
drink and they separated on the
best of terms. 1'iesently a man
entered the station with a very sim
ilar package under his arm. A
shrewd-looking young man was
guiding him as Ames had been es
corted to the station. In an instant
it flashed across Ames' mind that
the countryman was a fellow victim,
and he walked up to him and
whispered, "You have been bit just
as I was.'' The countryman did
not understand the warning, but tho
messenger took alarm and was out
of sight when Policeman Walsh ran
in to see what the noise was all
nlmut. Ames, precious package of
brick luy on the lloor whore ho had
dropod it when ho seiged tho green
goods steerer. The amazed country
man did not yet full v comprehend
that he had been swindled until he
opened his box. It was filled with
a neatly cut bulk of green papers.
This second victim said ho was
Charles Nylxsrg, and that ho kept a
grocery in Jamestown, Y. Wo
had paid f2."i for his box full of
green paper, ami had e.tiectel U
find J-ut) in counterfeit money in
it when he got home. Policeman
Walsh took the victims and their
collection of green papier and brick
to the Morrisiana station. N'yln'rg
had been so anxious to buy all the
'green goods" he could pay for that
he did not have enough money left
to pay his fare home. Ames said
lie hud secured a return ticket.
The two comiwred notes and &on
eluded that they had been swindled
by the same gang. They wore sent
down to tell their adventures to
Police lnsH'ctor Hymes.
A i'KAYKR ANSWHKKU,
The Hev. .Mr. Dunn, one of the
secretaries of the American Sabbath
t'nion, in the course of a turmoil
preached in Brooklyn a few evenings
ago, said: "The PuriUius woru the
greatest of alt great men;" and fer
vently added, "O, for more of tho
Puritan spirit!" The following from
a late Pennsylvania uter is an ex
ample of the spirit that actuated
the Puritans, and its oiled on those
who fell victim tu it: "Krem htown,
huierne county, Pennsylvania, has
lietui in a turmoil for several davs
on account of tho sujierstilious be
liefs of the foreigners there. About
a week ago, Mrs. Passncro stated
tiial she was the daughter of a
mountain shepherd in Austin-Hungary,
and according to the natives
such u woman has tho power of be
witching, livery little misfortune
that has since befallen any of the
inlwbiUtuts of the town has been
charged to tier, and thu iiMivt havt
threatened to burn her at the stake
uuhjM 1'B would oumuiit aule'ulo.
Recently a cow, Indonging to the
leader against the innocent woman,
died. We went to the ltouro and
demanded that tins cow be brought
back to life within five hours. When
the five hours had expired, and the
animal had not come to life, tho
owner collected a crowd, and pro
ceeded to her residence, dragged her
from her home and so murderously
assaulted her that her life is des
jtnired of." American Sentinel.
