LIFE AND DEATH IN MUNICH ,
An Interesting Uhnptor on Beer nnd
G. Henry Horstmann , for several years
consul at Munich , has published an in
teresting volume of reminiscences of his
visit abroad. In describing the cemetery
at Munich the writer says :
The corpses are kept forty-eight hours
n the "uoadhou.io" before interment.
Knelt collln is numbered , and outside , in
the vestibule , a framed list gives the
name nnd age of oacli occupant. Great
precautionary measures are taken against
the chance of burying anyone who might
possibly bo only in n trance. A corpse is
not allowed to be koptmoro than twenty-
four hours in the liouso ( quite a wise reg
ulation in cities , wlicro many families
living under the same roof ) . Jt ? is then
taken to the " ( Iciullion.se" at the cc.me-
torv. When the collln has been placed ,
n ring is slipped over the middle linger
of the corpse , having a connecting wire
to the coiling , and from there carried
over to an adjoining apartment , where
the wire is attached to a bell having a
number corresponding to that of the
colfin. The slightest movement of the
body would cause the bell to ring , and
the attendants would be at once notified.
In siuli cases they have their special in
structions as to what is to bo done. In
the largo halls there is quite a net
work of wires with the ends hanging
down , and It ratlicrnnploasanlly reminds
one of n vast telegraph ollieo where a
good deal of business is lieing done. The
quiet corpses lying there side by side ,
with their lingers in the rings , make a
weird and mystio impression on ono
those poor human batteries. charged with
all the miseries of earth , with their wires
connecting with eternity. If those wires
were inhued with the iwwcr of transmit
ting the expressions of the living soul.
what tales would ho theirs ! 1 often used
to think how horrible it would bo should
one of the bolls begin ringing suppose
at lliu dead of night , when the great
graveyard Is deserted by all save the
thousands of ghosts that haunt it the
ghosts below ground and those in the
mill silently awaiting their turn to be
shoveled in anil the solitary living
watches in the chnrnel iiule-chanilier
And yet such things1 not ( infrequently
hapnun. From the swelling of tin ; bodies
the hand slips down , and the bell rings.
The watchman hardened old chum of
the deadlike a sprightly waiter , saun
ters in to see what is wanted ; but hn only
has to raise the ley , leaden hand to its
place again. This arrangement , of the
rings and bells is m.ido probably more
for the consolation of the public than for
its necessity ; no case has occurred , since
its introduction some thirty years ago , of
any of the occupants of the "dcadhouso"
coming to Ufa again. The little children
alone lie there in groups by themselves ,
and have no wires attached to them.
"It would bo a poor work on Munich , "
says Mr. Hortsmann , "if one chapter
were not devoted to beer. Bavaria takes
the lead of all nations in tlie consump
tion of beer , but Munich out beers ail
Bavaria. " The babe at the breast is
given its tirst sip of beur. Before it is
a year old it is knowing in the matter of
heer , and claps its hands joyfully when
it sees the sparkling brown" juice in the
mug. lief ore it can walk it is generally
honored with the present of a miniature
beer glass , which becomes as necessary a
table equipment for it as the spoon it cats
with. The measure of beer ono gets in
Munich is no humbug. The law requires
each glass and each mugslmll bonr onthtit
its outside its governmental attestation
to its capacity , and a hori/ontal line is
ground into tno glass or stone showing
the exact level which the liquid must
have. This line dare not bo less than one
centimetre ( half an inch ) from the rim ,
so as to allow for the foam , and the ves
sels must bo tilled to that mark
with solid beer. There are f5-18'i brew
eries in Bavaria , or a little more than 9110
to each 1,000 inhabitants. In the United
States there are 13,000 breweries , or one
to each 20,000 inhabitants. In Munich
there arc 29 breweries , the largest pro
ducing 7,000,000 gallons of beer per
annum. In all Europe there are 40,000
breweries , producing 74,800,000 barrels of
beer. Of this quantity Bavaria produces
8,070,000 barrels. The city of Munich
annually consumes 71)3,000 ) barrels of
beer , or 473 quarts per head , or 1 ! MO
quarts per day more than thirteen times
ns much as the average amount for the
American citizen. Mr. Horstmann ven
tures to say that there are thousands of
men in Munich who drink eight quarts
every day of their lives , while there are
many who drink ten and twelve quarts.
If this quantity were divided out into the
ordinary American 5-cont glass it would
( ill sixty glasses. But although such im
mense quantities of beer are consumed
in Bavaria tlie amount of drunkenness is
much less there than in other countries ,
and a drunken man in the streets is al
most never seen , a fact alleged to bo duo
to the richness of Bavarian beer in dex
trine , and its comparative freedom from
alcohol. The Bavarian winter beer con
tains about 4 pur cent , and the summer
beer about ! } per cent , of alcohol , while
English porter contains from 0 to 7 per
cent , and ale from 0 to 9 per cent. "
Ono of the small , rocky islands of Pyra
mid lake , Nevada , is alive with rattle
snakes. It is supposed that the pro
genitors of those snakes were wafted to
tlie island on bunches of floating reeds
or rafts of driftwood. There are
thousands , if not millions the people
about the lake say millions of tlie rat
tlers on the island , and their right to it
there is "none to dispute. " The reptiles
have their homes among the rocks and
feed upon the eggs and young of water
fowl and dead lish that are cast on the
island. Stories have been told of those
snakes rushing forth in a body , hissing
and rattling , to attack any one landing
upon the island. The rattlesnakes of the
Island , when disturbed , glide away
and hide themselves in the crevices of
the rocKS , just as would similar snakes
on the mainland , though they Halt and
show light when hard pressed.

THE MURDER OF A MISER ,
A Bloody Crime Which Startled Aristo
cratic New York Thirty Years Ago ,
THE MYSTERY YET UNSOLVED.
A Dark nnd Devilish Deed UnnvcnRcd
Money the Motive Sketch of
A piercing shriek of "JIurdcrl" rang
through quiet , aristocratic Bond street ,
in New York city , one stormy night
thirty years ngo. Once only did the cry
go forth , and then all was silent , save for
the rattling of the rain and the moaning
of the rapidly rising wind.
The hour was half-past 10 o'clock on
the night of Friday , January 30,1857. A
gentleman living : it No. 30 Bond street
heard Iho cry , but us ho was unnbloto
tell from wliat direction it came , and as
it was not repeated , ho closed his door
Next morning the city was shocked to
hoar of the mysterious murder of Dr.
Harvey Burdell , n wealthy but eccentric
dentist , who lived at No. ! )1 ) Bond street.
Dr. Burdell owned the House , ot which
he was in the habit of letting the greater
nart , reserving for his owifuso only the
reception parlors , operating room anil
bedroom on the second floor.
In person ho was a line portly man of
middle ace. A man of strong passions
and ungovernable temper , he had few
friends. In spite of his invested wealth ,
which was eoiisiderablo.anillus large anil
remunerative praetice , his mode of life
was so penurious -almost to entitle him
to tin ; name of miser. His hou.se was
usually let to persons of questionable
character , a ehiss among which he had
He kept his own servant , an extraor
dinary Irish girl named Biddy , who , al
though in most respects an ignorant crea
ture , possessed n singular facility for no-
quiring foreign languages. French ,
( icrmnn and Spanish , she spoke with
fluency , having devoted all her spare
time to slimy. She was devotedly at
tached to the doctor.
On May 1 , preceding the murder , Mrs.
Cunningham , a buxom widow , with two
children , took possession of the house.
Like others of tiie doctor's tenants , her
reputation was none of the best. The
other inmati'S of the house were John J.
Eckel , who was iicncrully supposed to bo
paying court to Mrs. Cunningham , Snod-
'grass , a youth of eighteen , who was very
attentive to the two daughtcrs.Ilelen nnd
Augusta ; Daniel Ulmau and Hannah
Uonlan , the cook.
A small boy took charge of tiio doctor's
rooms and called every morning for the
purposes of making the tires.
Airs. Cunningham appears to have
divided her affections between Mr. Eckel
and tiie doctor , each of whom did his ut
most to .supplant Iho other , with the re
sult causing frequent uproars in the
On October 23. IS.'iO , Mrs. Cunningham
was married by the Hev. Dr. Marvino to
whom it has never been clearly proven.
The certificate states that it was Dr. Bur-
deli , but it is by no means certain that ho
was not personated on the occasion. As
his lawful wife. Airs. Cunningham ,
would , of course , have been entitled to
her legal share ot his estate in the event
of his sudden death.
Whether they were married or not ,
however , furious outbreaks between the
couple continued to be of frequent oc
currence and matters finally came to
such a pass that the doctor determined to
look out for another tenant.
While Dr. Burdell was out at dinner
on the evening preceding the murder ,
Mrs. Ciinninglintu asked Hannah , the
cook , what woman it was that she had
shown through tl > o house that day.
Hannah replied that it was a lady who
was about to take the house.
"When docs she take possession ? "
asked Mrs. Cunningham.
"The lirst of May , " replied the servant.
"He bettor bo careful ; ho may not live
to sign the papers , " was the reply.
What time the doctor came liomo that
night is unknown , but the exact moment
of tlie murder is fixed at half-past 10
o'clock , and the time when the cry of
murder was heard.
It was 8 o'clock in the morning when
the boy came , according to custom , to
make the iircs in the doctor's rooms. He
brought a scuttle of coal from the cellar
and setting it down opened the door of
the front room on the second floor.
It struck against somethini : which
seemed heavy and yet yielding. The
boy , who was whistling merrily , pushed
it back and stepped into the room.
The sight Which mot his ga/.o struck
him rigid with horror. On its back , with
arms outstretched and eyes staring
blankly at the coiling , lay the body of the
owner of the house , the head resting in a
pool ot blooi ) . Blood was everywhere
on the walls , carpets , furniture , splashed
live feet high on the door and spurted to
the very ceiling.
The boy's terror found vent in a shriek
that was head by every soul in tlm house ,
Airs. Cunningham , with her family and
boarders , were quietly nt breakfast in the
basewent , apparently all unconscious of
the awful scene up-stairs.
On learning what had occurred she
gave way to a wild outburst rf grief.
Kckel exhibited little concern.
The room in which the body was found
had evidently been the scene of 11 torrillc
life nnd death struggle. The furniture
was tossed about in every direction and
hardly an article was found to be free
from the stain of blood.
Mo less than fifteen distinct stab
wounds , any ono of which was stillicicnt
to have caused death , wore counted on
the corpse , which was fully clothed.
They had thn tipptMirano of having been
Inflicted with a long ) narrow dagger.
Around the neck , sinking deeply Into
thu flesh , was tlie mark of a small cord ,
showing that strangulation , had lirst been
attempted. This failing , resort had been
had to the dagger.
The gas was burning full. The bed
had not been slept in. A complete ex
amination of the house disclosed the
startling fact that there were blood marks
on the hell , oven in tlie nttio room and on
thu very stops leading to the scuttle in
The spirit of murder seemed to have
stalked through the house , leaving everywhere -
whore tiio gory trace of its lingers.
The news of the murder spread like
wildfire through the city. The police
were scarcely able to control the excited
crowds that surged through Bond street
to gaze at the windows of the room in
which the tragedy took place.
At the coroner's inquest , which was
hold in the house , medical experts testi
fied that the strokes of the dagger had
been delivered by a left-handed person.
Mrs. Cunningham was left-handed. The
verdict charged Mrs. Cunningham and
Eckel with the murder and they were
convoyed to the Tombs ,
The case against Eckel was dismissed ,
but Airs. Cunningham was placed on trial
on the Cth of May. She was ably defended -
fended by Henry L. Clinton. District
Attorney A. Oakey Hall conducted thu
prosecution , but ho was unable to estab
lish anything against the accused except
the existence of a motive ,
The' trial lasted three days , and the
Jury , after deliberating for an hour and a
half , returned a Verdict of "not cuilty. "
.Mrs. Cunningham , who had assumed
the nnuiu of Burdell , immediately returned -
turned to her houie at No. 81 Bond street.
Not Sdtislind with having escaped thu
penalty of the lmev which there te Jittlo'
duubt that she committed , and. havipg.
booomo cntillod b.t right of dower to a
third ot the murdered man's wenlth ,
she determined to igaln possession of the
whole of It , nnd in furtherance of this
object conceived the rcmnrkablo Idea of
imlmins : oft'on the authorities an infant
heir to the estate.
A Dr Uhl was taken Into her confi
dence , with the understanding that ho
was to receive $1,000 for his share in the
transaction , but the doctor promptly
acquainted the district attorney with the
particulars of the widow's ingenious
Mr. Hall entered eagerly into the spirit
of what appeared to him a huge joke and
actually undertook to supply the neces
sary infant. In duo time Mrs. Cunning
ham announced that all was ready for
the interesting dcnonment.
Disguised as a Sister of Charity she
wont to a house in Kim street , where the
lutant , borrowed by Mr. Hall from Bellevue -
vuo hospital , was delivered to her by Dr.
Uhl , and carried it to Bond street in a
basket. The next day the arrival of the
heir was duly announced and then Mr.
Hall and a policeman stepped in and
arrested the "mother. "
She was soon attcrwards , however , set
at liberty. The little girl who was used
in carrying out this remarkable fraud
was named Matilda Anderson. 'She and
her real mother were placed on exhibi
tion at Barnnm'fi museum.

Every town has its bully every fron
tier town. Big Jim was tlie bully of Hill
City , llo could drink more , curse
louder , shoot quicker , and start a row
sooner than any other man. When ho
shot Limber Joe it was a standoff. It was
rough against rough. Whoever went
under the town would bo gainer. The
death of his second victim brought him
n certain respect , for ho had given the
man a fair show. There was a limit to
the number of men one might shoot in
Hill City. It was three times and out.
Bur Jim had killed his third.
Two hundred men all excited some
halt crazed all indigdaiit some terribly
aroused , surged down the street to the
Red Star saloon bent on vengcancn. Big
Jim and the man he had killed , wcro
alone in the place.
"Bring him oull" "K
"He's got to Wing ! "
"Bring out the bully and coward I"
There was a rush , but it was checked.
Men had pistols and knives in their
hands , but the : Bight of Big Jim with a
big "navy" in each hand cooled their
ardor. A life for a life is no rovenge.
They lied when they called him a bully.
Bullies strike and run or bluster and
dare not strike. They lied when they
c.illed him a coward. Cowards do not
remain to face death.
Big Jim advuncod'a little. The crowd
fell back. He stood in the door and sur
veyed the mob as. another man might
have looked up at the pine covered crest
of Carter's peak. . Tlie mob grow quiet.
There were 200i right hands clutching
deadly weapons , but not a hand moved.
Two hundred to ono is appalling odds ,
but the one was master. Seeming to
face every man of them seeming to cover
every breast with the black muzzles of
his revolvers the man backed away up
the road into the darkness , out of their
sight and bearing. Ho said not a word.
There wasn't a whisper from the crowd
until ho had disappeared. Then men
drew long breaths of relief. A terrible
menace had passed away.
Out into the darkness down the roucn
road over thorudo bridge , and there Big
Jim put up his revolvers , turned his face
square to the west and stepped out with
out a look back to the camp. It was ten
miles to Harncy's Bend. Men driven
from the ono cam ) ) took refuge in the
other. The half-way landmark was a bit
of a valley skirted by a creek. Wayfarers
who were journeying by team many
times halted there. On this night there
was a lone wagon. Under the canvas
cover slept a mother and four children.
Resting against a wheel was the husband
and father , his eyes piercing into the
darkness Ins oars drinking in every
Big Jim had not reached the valley yet
when the still night air was rent with war

county , is a wiry young follow of about
forty , a hard-working fanner , and a
semi-occasional lover of old , red liquor.
He has bright , small eyes , a face the
color of old trlpo , and a moustache that
is the shadow of tilings hoped for. Jim
is a good fellow , quiet , peaceable , hos
pitable , and is saturated with
natural , genuine , purely Ameri
can humor. Ho has two voices ,
one a deep bass coming up from the
depths of his inner economy , the other a
charming falsetto , suggcsivu of the ambi
tious school girl , who attempts to reach
high C without lirst gome through the
necessary preparation. The humor of
his yarns is enhanced by his startling
change from one voice to the other.
Many of your rcadors will remember
him , as they have been delighted listeners
when stopping at Live Oak. Jim never
smiles or laughs himself and is at his
best when ho is about one drink ahead of
A I'UETTV HEFTY CHAWKISlt.
"I'll swear , boys , " said Jim ono day ,
as he stopped his horse in front of the sa
loon and swayed easily in Ids saddle , " 1
don't want to see no moro heavy rains
like wo had this week. They're about
spiled my crop. Woss'n that , them
blame crawfish is crawlin' all over my
yard. My dog bagged ono the t'other
"How was that , Jim ? " inquired ono of
"Well , you sco , I'd just gone to bed. I
couldn't go to sloop , for I had been sorter
riled at the rain , and all tor onct the pup
commenced barkin' like the devcl. I
thought 'twas a coon in the yard after
the eniekons , so I slipped on my pants ,
took a lantern and went out. What do
you think I saw ? Boys , I'll swear hit
was the biggest crawlish I ever seed in
all my life. Hit was on hit's bind legs
a-sparrin' at the dog. 1 sicked the pup
on , but the crawlish whipped him out in
one round. I went into tno house after
my gun , but when I got back the dog-
goncd thing was gone. I was sorry , for I
was goin' to give hit to my friend Senator
Bill Bryson. "
"How big was it , Jim ? " asked one
"Boys , I'll sw.ir hit was as big as that
goods box , " pointing to a dry-goods box
about three foot square.
A MASSACltE OF WILD DUCKS.
"I'll bet a hundred of fodder that I've
got the best gun there is InoldSuwanco , "
said Jim , "and I once killed moro ducks
with hit than the hull blame town of Live
Oak could eat in a day. "
"Where is it , Jim ? "
"I'vo got hit right homo now , ain't ' I ,
Jo ? "
"How long is it. Jim ? "
"Hit's twenty foot lane , if it's a foot.
My old grandfather lit the Injuns with
hit. You kin put yor whole arm
down the barrel. Ono day last
winter I got up right airly to go down
to the pond duck hunting. I loaded the
old gun with a pound ot powder nnd six
pound of shot and started oft' . I had to
use about a barrel of moss for wadding.
The gnu was so heavy I couldn't carry
hit , so I drug the plagued tiling through
Iho bushes. When I got to the
pond it wasn't quite sun up.
The pond was kivcred with ducks ,
boys , I'll swear I never saw so many
ducks in my nateral life. I rested the
on a branch and pulled the trigger ,
entlemen , the dog-gono thing kicked.
Hit cut my lip through , busted my snoot
and kicked mo onto tlie head. Yes , sir ,
hit kilt mo dead. When I como to I was
kivcred with blood nnd could scarcely
see. I hurried to the house quick's I
could and got my face fixed up. I was
that weak I couldn't walk much , and it
was two hours afore I wont back to the
pond. I'll swear , boys , the gun was still
sniokin' and a forty-aero licld t'other
side the pond was kivcred with ducks.
I wisht I'd took bettor aim. I b'licvo I'd
a kilt all they was in the pond. "
"How many did you kill , Jim ? "
"Well , I on'y got seventeen hundred.
I'd a got more , but sonio on 'em was so
badly shot up I didn't kccr to bother.
For all , that gun cuttin'up so and bustm'
of me an' the load hadn't gone outin' of
it , for about u week after Tom put on a
fresh cap and kilt a hawic with It 000
yards oil' . "
"What will you take for that gun ,
Jim ? "
" Taint for sale. I'm goin' to keep hit
ontil nox' 'lection ana see cf I can't
make some nigger democrats with hit. "
A CUKIOUS CIGAK.
"Thank you , that smells like a good
cigar. The poorest cigar I over smoked
was ono I got at Houston some time ago.
Hit was at night. Tom and mo bad been
to a party , I think , and as wo passed
through that place I 'eluded I wanted a
smoko. Wo had plenty of 'old red' with
ns , but nosmokin' terbackcr. Wo tlruv
up to the store and I hollared for the
man to come down. Hit was about mid
night. Hit was a long time before I
could wake him up , and when he did ho
was skeered to como down. I reckon ho
thought wo was Icukluk. Soon's ho
found out 'twas mo ho como down and
opened the door a crack and asked what
1 wanted. I told him a oigar. He handed
Eoinethin' out and hit was so long I
thought hit was a broom-handle. 1 told
him I wanted a cigar nnd scz ho : 'That's
a cigar , and cheap at fiye cents. ' So I
lit hit and rode off. lilt was so doggoncd
long hit struck agin the branches over
head and tilled my eyes full of ashes and
sich , scrapin' the bark ofl'en the
branches and skcorln' my boss.
I broke oft' part nnd kept on
Htnokin' , but it was still too long , so
1 ' bronkln' off and ' '
kop' pieces putlin' 'om
in my pocket. When 1 got lioinn I was
Btill smokin' and had a pocket full of
cigars. That was the longest cigar I
over seed , and I was two hours and a half
uettin' homo , too.
"What was it made of , Jim ? "
"Why , bear grass and wahoo bart. Hit
was green , too , for ho made hit in the
mornin' and Ink hit in the night afore hit
was halt dry. "

Ono year ago a Texas horse trader
brought a lot of the most vicious ponies
to Live Oak and disposed of them to the
neighboring farmers , either by purchase
or trade. Jim is always swapping horses
and ho was one of the first to become
owner of a pony. Ho had no trouble in
breaking it to the saddle , for ho Is a
number ono horseman nnd a fearless
rider , but when ho came to break it to
harness ho had a regular picnic. Ho told
us of his troubles ono day , with the same
impassive countenance and the change
of voice that is a part of his natural be
fcv'PIl swear , boys , them Texas ponies Is
like n streak of lightning. 'Tother day
I hitched mine to the wagon and wont
to loading up foddur. I hud about three
hundred bundles on when the pony cot
skeered like , and oft'hn started on n dead
run , wagon and all. Hit was the dog-
gondobt race I over seed Hit run right
through the woods about forty miles I
guess , and when I fotoiicd up with hit
after a two davs' sarch , hit had a wad of
grape vines 'round hit as big as that
there fctono over yongcr. The wagon
was all bruk up , and 1 never did find but
ono bundle of fodder ; hit was scattered
all over the yurth. Now good-by , I inns'
bo goin' . Como out some day nud sou
my cat that's big as a ycnrlin' . I cotched
hit by tlie collar 'tothcr day and hit

Philadelphia Bulletin : It was no disap
pointment to the people who had been in *
viled to witness tin exhibition of the Keoly
motor to-day when thuy learned tlmt it
was not hi condition to "mole.1' A hun
dred or more previous disappointments
had prepared tliom for the present ono
and made It a fulfilled expectation ratUor
than a matter of regret.
"Thero was sonic talk , " said Secretary
Schullormann this morning , "of having
an exhibition to-day , but It was not Pos
itively decided upon. It is my impression ,
though Air. Keeley will be ready to give
a test , of his smaller engine some time
next week. Ho is virtually through his
labors. The various parts of the machine
are completed ; all that remains to bo
done is to adjust them. To the unso
phisticated tins would appear a slmplo
task , but as a matter of fact it is n very
dilllcultono. The small vibratory parts
must bo ground down to n nicety upon
an emery wheel before being ndjustod ;
this requires earn nnd delicacy , The
The engine will have n power of from
ten to to lifteeii horses and the coming
exhibition will comprise tests in gun
nery , wood-sawing , etc. The exhibition
will uo private. Air. Keely is hard at
woikon his larger engine ono of 200
horse power and 1 am confident that
before the expiration of two months ho
will exhibit in public with results that will
not only startle the world , but also rovo-
lutioni/.o scientific theories of long stand
ing. The ethoriu force which Air. Keely
produces permeates everything wood ,
metal and stone and thu time is not far
distant when It will bo a recognized cle
ment in the practice of medicine. I be
lieve it will euro cancer and tumor. It is
"Was it not proposed to run an engine
from Philadelphia to New York to-day
by the use of Air. Keoly's ' force ? "
"Not at all. That was not dreamed of.
No one who has confidence in Mr.Keely's
engine doubts its ability to propel a train
of cars or anything else movcablo , but
jt was not proposed to make any tests
in that direction at present. They will
come in duo time. The tests which Mr.
Keely has in immediate view are not on
so large a scale , but they will practically
provo that the motor is the coming force
in the world , supplanting compressed
air , steam and electricity. It will sup
plant electricity by furnishing vibratory
lines of communication which will not
be susceptible to the dangers and disad
vantages ot the telegraphic wires. More
over , it caii be made to produce n vol
uminous light fully as brilliant and as
struly as the electric ray. "
