Now there was nothing wrong about the sounding board, and tho piuno in good condition, but had been hurriedly shipped, and a screw in the swing desk attachment was not firmly imbedded. This caused the rattle.

He made the policy payable to a yqung lady for whom he had developed a singular degree of fondness, but had never married. Shortly afterward ho took out an additional $4,000 policy in another company, and proceeded thereafter about his regular business. He was in good health, and one day in December ho went to tho river for a season of skating, declining any company. He .went skimming over the smooth surface of the river till he reached a point three miles from town, where he passed a group of men loading wood, shouted a greeting to them, and passed out of sight. They recognized him, and remarked on his grace as a skater, but they never saw him again. A CLEAR CASK. Burns never came back to town. His Pecatonica friends never saw him again and his loss was mourned bitterly. In a day or twoa groupof boyB catneupfrom tho country along the river, four miles from town, and said they saw a man whoso description answered that of Burns come skating toward them the moruing of itis disappearance while they were attending to some muskrat traps; that he was performing some marvelous gyrations nnd that ho suddenly disappeared in an opening In the ice. Burns* friends found tho marks of his skates from the very point where he bad put them on down to within 200 yards of where the youthful trappers had treed a muskrat Here they found a hole about ten feet across, formed by a spring, which prevented tho water from freezing. The skulo marks led to the very edge of the hole, nnd there were lost. , It looked like accidental death, and Miss Matilda, the charming beneficiary under the policies of life insurance, asked that the money be paid her. But until the body was produced and ideutiilcatiou fixed beyond a doubt the soulless corporation declined to contribute. Along in April tile ice' was well out of the river, nnd the IkhI was dragged for the body of Burns. The body of a man was found some distance down the river. He had on Burns' clothes. Burns' skates -were on his feet, and iu one of the pockets was found Bums' open faced watch. The identification seemed complete. But cliief among those who examined and identified the body was Dr. Pills, who had passed upon Burns' application for insurance. He seemed exceedingly interested in tile case, making many trips to Pecatonica and comforting Matilda by almost daily visits. He cheered her so effectually that on the Fourth of July they were married, and tl(e girl laid aside her weeds the day she was wed, For some' reason the company still objected to paying the insurance money, and suit was brought to compel them. They found Burns hod made a will by which the doctor inherited all his little worldly wealth, and this, with some other facts, still induced Uicm to question the validity of the claim. The case did not come to trial until the following winter, and then the defendants' attorney asked for an adjournment until the following day. Was he going to offer a compromise? Next morning the court room was filled aDd every one was on tiptoe to see how much of the $10,000 Matilda secured. Bill Evans, a barber, waa placed in the witness chair by the defense. Were you acquainted with John Burns?" he-was asked. "I was," he replied. "Is he living?' � "He is." "How do you know?" "Because I am looking right at him now!" WHY EUttSS TOEJiED UP.

In regard to.tho organization of "Thirteen Clubs" it may be observed that this superstition has never been considered to hold good except where the number thirteen has occurred ace dentally. The absurdity, therefore, of the formation of special clubs to meet on the 18th, to dino at 13 tables or to do anything else with 18 in it, becomes at once obvious.

He and tho girl and the doctor formed the scheme td get $10,000 from the insurance companies. He was young and careless, and willing to take some risks. The doctor was to take $2,000, the girl $8,000, and he was to have the balance. Then he was to marry Matilda, and with her leave the country. He passed the wood uaulen on the ice, and almost immediately after took otf his skates, went ashore and �truck off through the woods, which were bare of snow, and got u train at a station ten miles from houie, and went to Chicago. -Then he went up to Wisconsin and found work in a sawmill. He corresponded with the doctor, taking an assumed name. When the company demanded tho body the doctor wrote asking for his skates, watch and the clothes he wore on that fatal morning. He sent them, but saved the letter, which was now produced in court, and in which tho statement was made: "I have a good stiff about your size which I can use." Burns accidentally learned that Dr. Pills and Matilda were married, and he ut once returned to Pecatonica. He said that hu would not have cared if his girl hadn't married, but iter weakness and the doctor'* evident treachery led them to overreach. The sequel waa that toe doctor spent two years in prison for his share in the fraud. Burns got off lighter, and the woman was not prosecuted.
