KILLED IN HEE BOOM. NEW YORK POLICE HAVE SOLVEDTHEBOCK MYSTERY. Iho Detoctlvon Are Now Trying to Fl»d Jucoh I'Viinlcon.itulii—Ho Wont Intano ItccuiiHU ttio CJlri WoulJ Not Uocomo lilt Wife. RETTY ANNIE i\Bock was murder- led in her scarlet i'liomo in New York city about two weeks ago, and every clue save out; which might lead to the assassin has been run to thu end by the police, with- o'ut developing anything oi importance. The clu;: which is still to bo followed Is, it is believed the most important of all, and, in its'investigation, a romance of the life of Annie has been unearthed. This clue has been very socref.ly worked by tho police, and many facts have been gathered which point in the direction of the prohablo assassin. Tho story starts six years ago. when Annie came to this country from Russia with several other members o£ her family. She was then 3U years old. and her pictures showed that she was plump, and pretty, and arc in marked contrast to the jaded and frail creature whoso body, wrcc-kcd by dissipation, was laid away In .Mt. Washington cemetery one day last v.-cek. On the steamer in which Annie came to this country was a •young man named A Jacob Frankenstein, who ran away|K*.,escape military duty in Russia. H®;'"'cr had been wealthy, but lost hi^ ; :perty through an alleged trcasonl&le utterance against the Czar. Jacob wr.s two years older than Annie, and they were together most of ;hc time on tho Journey across the ocean. Annie was sick in bod nearly tho entire trip, and Jacob watched 'and nursed her, ar.d did all thai he con'.d do to maku her comfortable. Dtirins the voyage Jacob learned to love Annie. When they reached New York Jacob went to live with u relative named Meyers, in Wavcrlcy place, and Annie found a home in Division street. Jacob v/as of a little higher class than Annie in their native land, and she did not encourage his regard for her, because it Is not customary for one of his kind to marry out of his class. - Jacob, however, sought out Annie and called regularly upon her. Annie had never known wrong at that time. She attended the synagogue regularly. She wont to 'work in the big cloak factory In Division street, near Essex, and tolled day and night to get money enough to pay for the passage of other members of her family to this country. Jacob and Annie became engaged to be married, and as a token he gave her a plain gold band ring, the ring she wore when she was buried. Tile day was set for the wedding in January, 1S91. Jacob, wbo was also poor and working hard to save money to furnish a home for thorn, had a chance to go into the clothing business in Mobile, Ala., as a partner. He put what money he had saved into the business, but after six months' trial his partner sold him out and ran away with all the money. Jacob returned to New York city penniless. Ho had received letters 2-esularly from Annie and eup- posPd that she was getting along well. Me was surprised to learn on his return thai she had quit work in the cloak factory and had moved away from her people, Jacob sought for her for weeks anil months, and when he finally found her It was at once evident that sbe had for- soltcn the synagogue. Jacob begged her to give up the life she had started ^ and fu'.nl! the promise of marriage- to him, but she laughed at him, flaying she preferred the life she was leading. Jacob worried so much over the loss of Annie that his mini became unhal Interfere with the ends of justice. Jacob threatened violence to Annie in Conoy Island. That much la known. But did he carry out the revenge ho had been planning in his disordered brain for five years? * - w. fe&'l^l Vf-A " /l^ §s*3*V. > I A, \^ J JACOB FRANKENSTEIN, nnccd. He again sought the woman he loved and told her that he would kill her iC sho did not live with him. She again refused him, find her new lover threw him out of the flat. Returning be 'made a murderous attack upon Annie with a carving knife. He cut her on the forehead, ar.d she earned the scar to the grave. Jacob was arrested and sent to the insane, asylum on Blackwell's island, and his friends supposed that he would end his days there, but it has been learned that recently ho was released. Jacob is the old lover the police have boon trying to find since the murder was discovered. They will not say anything about him or what they are doing to find him, for fear that it might MATRIMONY HIS BUSINESS. H. C. IvIMBALL. Harold C. Kimball, alias Howard K. Cavello, alias Cecil King, alias Harry Morgan', and alias many other names too numerous 10 mention, is in the clutch of Inspector Stuaft, of the government postal service, at Chicago. When that official finishes with him it is expected that Kimball will have a long term of years to serve behind the bars for the crime of using the United States malls to defraud. Kimball is one of the gayest and most unscrupulous deceivers of women ever Known to the police of the large cities, or to the government detectives, who have been Bcardiing for him for more than a year. Ho was born in learning- ton, Ont., where his mother, a poor woman, still resides. For fifteen years he operated in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, California and Mexico as a betrayer of confiding and weak women. Hew many wives he possesses will probably be never known. Pie has one now living near Crown Point, Ind. She has relatives keeping a hotel in Chicago, and was there when Kimball was arrested In February, 1385, for dacoiv- lus and robbing Ida. I-- Smith, ot Toledo" 1 Ohio. He secured a, bondsman in Joseph Kcely, a Chicago attorney now lu the penitentiary, and then left the country.-" Another wife of Kimball a died in San Francisco two years ago Under suspicious circumstances, and Btill another is said, to bo livinz in Leamington. His plan of action was to secure the acquaintance of some woman whom he believed to have money, introducing himself as a banker of Oakland, Cal., :i California fruit farmer, a western mine owner or a Mexican nabob. Me was handsome, plausible, had traveled extensively, and rarely failed to make an impression. Following this up, he would make violent love to his Intended victim, become en- eagctf-'o her, and at about the time marriage was to take place would decamp, taking with him ail of the money and personal property he could secure. So many of the- women thus betraycxl were of good social sUinding that they refused to prosecute him, and in this way he has constantly escaped punishment. When in this country Chicago was his headquarters. He.had been a hotel clerk there tit one time and also a heavy patron of the gambling houses. He usually stopped at aa obscure hotel. While last there ho came very near e:i- truppins a Chicago society ;>irl, while at I ho same time he v.-as lay ins: siege to the heart of a- well-to-do milliner on Jackson boulevard.

From the Century Magazine: Next day Napo'eon performed his last official act, which was one of great courage, both physical and moral. The national guard in Paris had been reorganized, but its officers had never been thoroughly loyal to the empire, many of them beins royalists, and some radical republicans. Their disaffection had been heightened by recent events, but they were nevertheless summoned to tho'Tuileries; the risk was doubled by the fact that they came armed. Drawn | up in the. gre.it chamber known as that of the marshals, they stood expectant; the great doors were thrown open, and there entered the emperor, accompanied only by his consort and their child in the arms of his governess, Mme.. De Montesquieu. Napoleon announced simply that ho was about to put hims«l! . at the head of his army, hoping by tho aid of God and the valor of his troops to flrivo the enemy beyond the frontiers. There was silence. Then, tak- I ing in one hand that of the empress and leading forward his child by the other, he continued: "I intrust tho empress ar.d the king of Rome to the courage of tho national guard." Still silence. After a moment, with suppressed emotion, he concluded, "My wife and my son." No generous-hearted Frenchman could withstand such an appeal; breaking ranks by a spontaneous impulse, the officers started forward in a mass and shook the very walls with their cry, "Long live the emperor!" Many shed tears as they withdrew in rcsp-ocliul silence, and that night, on the eve of his departure, the emporor received a numerously signed address from the very men whose loyalty he ha<J hitherto had jus; reason to suspect. Tho Vllllnn IViiti Keully Slain. A tragic affair occurred at the Novelty theater in London the other night, where the play called "The Sins of a Night." is being produced. Mr. Crozler | was playing the part ot the villain, and the plot provided that ho should be stabbed in the last act. The play ran alcns as usual until the stabbing scene, when, in some manner ye', unexplained, instead of a harmless blow being delivered, the dagger penetrated Crozier'a breast, inflicting a wound which caused his death in a few minutes. Consternation prevailed among the members ol the company. A physician was hastily summoned, but death had occurred before his arrival. The spectators were not aware ot the terrible mistake thai had been made, and Crozier's realistir fall was greeted with applause. Shocked nin YonnR Brldo. Marshal Radcliff of Jackson,Ohio,ana John Johnson of the Wellston, Ohio, police force drove to Hamden, Ohio, and arrested Harry Sullivan, who was stopping at the Worthington hotel with his young wife of less than a week, for bigamy. Sullivan has a former wire living at Irouton, Ohio, it 1-3 flald. Whe» Sullivan -svas placed under arrest ho at first protested his innocence, but through the earnest pleadings of his j victim to know the truth, he broke , down and confessed that he had a wife ; living nt Ironton, Ohio. His second wife, who was a Miss Reeves of Jackson, Ohio, completely gave way under the' shock, and is now lying unconscious, and every effort of the attending physicians fail to revive her. Sullivan is an artist by profession, and | claims he formerly lived at Cincinnati before going to Ironton, where he was married to his first wife.
