During the months of February and
March. IS81. the city was stirred from th
center to the circumference by daily report
of burglaries committed of the most daring
nature. Forty bourns were entered on at
many nihta, and from each articles of more
or less value taken. Such a state of alarm
had nt existed in this usually peaceful com
munity Kince the advent of Wilson's ever
memorable raid in The streets were
patrolled at night by armed squads of citizens,
and the police force was increased by putting
on extra men. These burglaries were all of
the same nature, the entrance or breaking
being generally effected through the from
windows, which in this city almost invariably
.open on a veranda and often open down tc

cast them upon you.
A complexion that w ould excite the envy
of a girl, long, dark mustache, slightly
turned up at the ends, covering lips of coral
redness, which, when parted by a smile.
Cften illuminated the owner's countenance,
disclosed teeth of great evenness and pearly
whiteness. TMt most enchanting smile, one
seen, can never be forgotten. The voice weli

I bad met this man, and he was Intro

fie freely discussed the frequent burglariet
then nightly occurring, and even suggested
some plans by which the midnight marauder
might be apprehended. Button was passion
ately fond of card playing (poker), and fre
quently made considerable losings. At timet
he would excuse himself from the game in
which he was playing, saying be would take
a walk for exercise, leaving what mone and
checks hs bad before bun on the table. After
an absence of an hour or two he would re
turn, resume bis seat and play, apparently
very much exhilarated by his walk and th

luck, and, consequently, in bad humor, he
would smilingly recommend the same course
by a short walk and fresh air, stating that
be always was greatly benefited by so doing.
At other times, when bis finances were ap
parently low, be would absent himself from
the city for three or four days, always re
turning flush with money. These periodica
absences at first did not attract my attention,
until one day a stranger standing on the side
walk heard me introduce Button to a friend
of mine. After Button and my friend had
convened a while and then walked off to
gether the stranger called me to one side and
asked me what B.'s name was. I unhesitat
ingly told him "Sutton."
"You are mistaken," he said, "that ia

noma Recovering my wits I began to think
Can it be possible that the gentlemanly But
ton Is the thief that is causing so much alarm
in this city I My suspicion being thoroughly
aroused, from this time on I kept close watch
over Button aud his movements. 1 noticed
another important fact, that when Button
was absent from the city there were no burg
laries committed. He left one day to visit
Eufaula, Ala., and remained there on
night That night the residence of Mr.
Ouice, a wealthy citizen pf that place, was
burglarized aud a large quantity of valuable
jewelry stolen. Button returned the next
morning to Montgomery loaded with plun
der. Having in the meantime been busily
engaged in tracing up Sutton's antecedents,
1 found out that bis real name was Jamet
Chastaine, that be formerly lived in Memphis
and was the trusted bookkeeper of a large
mercantile firm of that city, and bod default
ed to them in a sum of several thousand
dollars; also, that he was an escaped convict
from the Missouri State prison, where he was
undergoing a seuteuce of twenty years for
burglary, and was also wanted in Texas.
1 was now thoroughly convinced that
Sutton was the man that was causing such
consteruatfou among the citizens. 1 commu
nicated the facts to Cupt John W. Martin,
and located Sutton in a room. Cupt. Ear

politeness never forsook bira even when the
icy band of death was upon him. and the
misty film glazed bis eyes. Asking a by
stander for a drink of water, which was
given him, be faintly murmured, "Thank

An old sea captain sat in the lobby of tbfj
custom house yesterday afternoon. He was
in a talkative mood, mid related a number '
of funny experiences he had hod with minis
ters. There was one in particular which,
amused him very much as he recalled it,
"Once, whei we left London," he began,
"to make a trip to Baltimore, among the pas
sengers on board was a preacher. We had
hardly got out of tho river before the good
man became awfully sick, and bo felt sure
something was wrong with tho ship. He re
lated his fears to me, aud to allay them I
took him to the fore port of the vessel, where
a camber of sailors werS at work,
" 'Do you hear those men swearf I afik&i.
"Yes,1 he replied. 'Isn't it shocking!
Teat will become of themf
" 'Well, I dont know, I answered, 'but it
must be plain they are not worried about the
condition of the ship.' The reverend gentle
man saw the point and feltf much easier.
"The next day a terrible storm arose. The
vessel plunged in the trough of the waves,,
and the passengers were greatly frightened.
'I noticed the preacher going to the same .
part of the ship, and I followed him. Sud
denly he stopped and listened attentively. .
Then he exclaimed: 'Thank heaven, they are
(till swearing.' I need not add that the boat
didn't go down." Baltimore News,
