It exists in the form of a girl oaoy, Dora perfect in body with the ex ception of one arm, which terminates abruptly between the elbow and wrist. Apparently there is nothing phenomenal aoout tnis tact, tor cnuaren born witn bodily deformity are numerous. But to the medical profession the case is exceedingly interesting. The cause of such freaks in human nature was once considered inexplicable. When one oc curred it was simply termed a "freak' and allowed to go at that. But now they can be explained. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ginter are the parents of the child. They keep a butchei shop in the north end of MiUvale borough, at a little place called Bowers town. Eight other children are in the family, four boys and four girls, all of whom are sound and neaitny. One day, some months ago, the father was called away on business, and, as usual, lett the shop in charge of his wife. The shop adjoins the kitchen. Hearing a KnocK at tne Kitcnen door, Mrs. Winter proceeded to answer it. Opening the aoor she iound awaiting her an old ped dler familiar to that neighborhood. The peddler was a foreigner, by no means a handsome man, and having but one arm. The other was but the stump of an arm. which the man always carried exposed, to excite tne sympathy of the people. Yarn for knitting purposes constituted the wares of the peddler. Jle was informed that nothing was wanted, but. like other representatives of his trade, he insisted that a purchase be made. The misfortune of the man was em phasized by a special exhibition of bif arm. The lady of the house became very much ternhed, and finally to get rid oi the peddler she made a purchase. The husband learning of the affair became indignant, bnt as time passed by the incident was forgotten. It had almost passed out of recollection when on last Saturday it was vigorously brought back to memory. A little daughter was added to the family, and, strange to relate, it had but one arm. the other ending just below the elbow joint In every other respect the babe was sonnd and perfect Still stranger is the fact that the deformed member is on the right side of the body, which corresponds to that of the peddler.

Orange City, Fla., Dec. 14. No clue to the perpetrators of the quadruple assassination of Friday last at New Smjfena has been found, but tramps seen; in the neighborhood are suspected. The place is so far from a telegraph station that only partial details of the terrible affair are vt nhrjunnhla Th. house where the four victims met their fate is located on the banks of the Hills-boro river in the midst of a thick orange grove. The victims were Miss. A. fi. Bruce, Mrs. L. D. Hatch, Master Frank Backwood and a son of Mrs. Hafoh. A nothing had been seen of them for days some neighbors broke into the house Fridav. In thn mmor nt fba mn on the floor lay the body of Mrs. Hatch. shot through the left eye. In the same room was the body of ner 6-year-old son, shot under the left eye and with her throat cut. In the adjoining room lay the body of Frank Backwood, 4 years old, shot through the head and with his throat cut also. In the same room lvino- on the bed was the body of Miss Bruce.

When he came from the room he denied that he had found anything. Now it is acknowledged at the Norcross residence tnat a message nad been found, addressed to Mrs. Norcross. It read, in part: "I am going to New Yprk on business, and if I am not successful and do not come back before a given time I shall not return alive." In view of the closely woven web of evidence which has been thickening about Norcross as a bomb thrower, it only needed a letter like this, if genuine, to set all doubts at 'rest. Mr. Adams and his wife, who live in the lower part of Norcross' house at Somerville, are the authority for the statement that the letter has been found. Burglars Foiled by m Priest. Holudatsbubg, Pa., Dec. 14. The parsonage of St. Michael's Roman Catholic church of this city was the scene oi a burglary and attempted murder.
