SO.--Madame Humbert, other members of the Humbert family, and M. and Madame D'Aurignac, the brother and sister- in-law of Madame Humbert, who became notorious in connection with the great safe frauds in Paris, have been arrested here. They had been in Madrid since May 9. Later it became known that the polica made a clean haul of the whole family, Madame Humbert, her husband, Eva Humbert and the three D'Aurignacs, Eomian, Emile and Marie.

At dusk a boy called at the Ford dwelling and handed the girl a package, saying it had been sent for. She ate a part of the candy and was taken violently ill and lay in a stupor for twelve hours. Doctors who resuscitated her found that she was a victim of arsenical poisoning and that the candy had been saturated with arsenic. The case was placed in the hands of the police. It is believed that the package was sent by a young man who was jealous of her and who had made threats against her life. There Is Substitute. There is nothing just as good as Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills. No other medicine can take its place. It does not stimulate--it rebuilds and revigorates by resup- plying exhausted nerve force. It acts by its power to nourish the nerve centers---no other known" medicine does this. It is the only reasonable, sensible way. Don't accept a substitute--g % et what you ask for--Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills--a medicine whose excellence is vouched for by your fellow citizens. NO. 16 MONBQE ,ST. Mrs. John Irwin, of Fort Wayne, Ind., says: "I used to suffer from good, hard nervous sick headaches-headaches that prostrate and leave one nervous. I was advised to use Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills and got some at Meyer Bros. Co.'s drug store. The medicine has been a great boon, the headaches are gone and with them the attendant nervousness and depression. I think the Nerve Pills particularly good." ANERVEToNic NEVER EQUALED NO. 143 BROADWAY. Mrs. J. M. Kress, of Fort Wayne, Ind., says: "I think 3)r. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills are just splendid. I was badly in need of a nerve tonic, as I was depressed, weak and nervous. I got some of the medicine at Meyer Bros. Co.'s drug store and they built me right up, gave me strength, energy and made the nerves good and steady. I am very much pleased with the medicine." PUTS BLAME ON BEAKEMAN. Indianapolis, Ind., Dec. 17.--A freight brakeman nmning over a road on which there was a low bridge that had already killed nineteen brakemen was held by the supreme court to have assumed the risk of being killed by it in case he should fail to lie down when his train passed under it.

Francis, who was knocked from his train by the wagon bridge over the Monon railroad track at Putnamville when he was sitting on a brake wheel on top of a box car half asleep. The supreme court affirmed a judgment for the defendant. MYSTERY IN SUDDEN DEATH. Laporte, Ind., Dec. 17.--Coroner Bowell is making an investigation of the death of Peter Gunness, who died early yesterday morning. Gunness' widow said her husband arose at 11 o'clock Monday night to go outdoors. He went to the side of the kitchen stove to get his shoes. A minute later he was bleeding from a deep wound in the back of his head, which is alleged to have been made by the falling of a sausage grinder.

FREDERIC HUMBERT, SAID TO HAVE BEEN AT THE HEAD OF THE GREAT FRENCH SWINDLE, the house was surrounded. After some difficulty the police wei » admitted and arrested the long Bought for defaulters. The prisoners protested that they were the victims of infamous proceedings. They threatened to "get even" with certain persons in France and said they had come to Madrid direct from Paris. Mile Eva became hysterical and Madame Humbert clasped Marie D'Aurignac and her daughter in her arms, pleading with the police 'Tor the love of Gtod not to separate :ne from my daughter/' The police made an inventory of the contents of the apartments and found a*parcel of jewels valued at $2,000,' a couple of lottery tickets and about $1.15 in cash. Seals were then attached to the house and the whole family were removed to jail and were placed at the disposition of the French ambassador. The police suspect the Humberts of having disposed of important papers in the lavatories while delaying t2e entry of the officers. The family tried to escape by the windows, bul ] failed, as the house was cordoned. of dynamite when they were frightened away by citizens who responded to the call of the two clerks who had escaped from their "bonds.

The king congratulated the prefect, saying: "I rejoice that our police have been able to render service to France." The prefect said he had known of the presence of the Humberts for a week, but delayed taking action until he was assured that he had the whole party caged. The Humberts maintain they are innocent, declare they themselves have been victimized and say they desire to return to France and defend themselves against the charges. 1 Madame Humbert is the French woman who it is alleged was r*t the of the most daring and successful swindle of modern times. By representing herself at the ^heir to a fictitious American fortune of many millions she and her husband were able to borrow from French bankers the enormous stfm of $10,000,000.

TRAGEDY IN ROYAL CIBCLES. Genoa, Italy, Dec. 19.--All Italy was shocked yesterday at a double tragedy, involving- the deaths of Prince Beggio and Countess ITboldi, both of whom are related to royalty, whose bodies were found in a room in the Hotel Lombardia here. Appearances indicated that the prince had killed the countess with a revolver and then committed suicide with the same weapon. The tragedy i^s belipved to have been a deliberate tryst, with death as its purpose, as Prince Beggio and the countess were both married and gossip had can- nected their names before. Their elopement had been, a national scandal. It is thought they feared separation and resolved to die together. Coroner Bowell, at Laporte, is investigating the death of Peter Gunness. Gunness arose from his bed at 11 o'clock at night and went out of doors. When he returned he was bleeding from a deep wound in his head and death ensued three hours later.

A., Fort-Wayne, Ind. 9-ll-16-lS-22-25-30-w4t Drank Cedar Oil Mistaking it For Carbolic Acid, But Live, Bichard Hosier, who resides with' a married sister at 323 Chicago street, tried to commit suicide Wednesday evening shortly after 0 o'clock at that address and drank a quantity of cedar oil, mistaking it for carbolic acid. Hosier became violently ill, but after a severe attack of nausea, lasting nearly two hours, he recovered. Hosier had been drinking Wednesday and had quarreled with his sister, who had ordered him out of the house. He went back again, however, .determined to secure a bottle of carbolic acid and end his earthly troubles, but in groping for it in the dark he got hold of the cedar oil bottle and drank about half a pint of the contents. Cedar oil is good for exterminating bugs, but is an unpleasant beverage, and Hosier soon became very ill. Dr. Lomas was hurriedly sent for, but when an attempt was made to insert the tube of a stomach pi£.nip, Hosier fought desperately and it required the efforts of several men to control him until he could be pumped out. Officer Cheviron was detailed to investigate, but Hosier denied that he had attempted to take his life and insisted that the cedar oil was taken by mistake. Hosier is about twenty- five years old and served in the army in the Philippines. Dr. M. H. Thomas, Huntington, Indiana, is the only specialist in the U.
