A. Terrible Tale 4 FrlglitTal Crime Avenged. South Bend, IniL, March 22. Sever al months Ro the rrave of Sarah l'latu, a youn;: ladv who died of consumption, was found disturbed, and an examina tion showed that the head of the corpse was mLssinjr. What led to the discovery was the finding of a human jaw-bone by Fred Auer, a farmer, who lived near the county graveyard, some eight miles from tLe city, where the body was buried. The fact that only the head was taken threw suspicion on an amatner phrenologist named Gordon Truesdale. Truesdale occupied a small farm in the vicinity with his wife and a family of four girls, the oldest not more than 8 I years old. He was a handsome, broad shouldered fellow, with a fair education, but lazy and shiftless. His great hobby was phrenology, and he occasionally lectured on that subject in the country school-houses. His ambition to possess a collection of skulls was well known in the neighborhood, and the desecration of the i'latts girl's grave was...

Queer Signatures. The practice of sipnin as a mode of pivinp formal assent to written cod tracts or charters is probably as old as, and in ore sense we may say older than, the art of hanJ riling. Amongst all pflojilcs the art of authenticating a document .was ac-compli-l"l by the most illiterate per son, either by affixing a stamp with, tlio sip-net rinp they carried, or by hnitatin' the process cf (signing: by sonic other ana ruder device. Conspicuous amount these more rustic nianeuvrt'S was that which Gibbon mentions as adoiited by Theodorie, the grrat Ostrogoth King of Italy: lie liad a' gold jilale made in w hiuh the first few letters of his name were out in the Greek character; and w hen f aper liad to be ripned by him the plate was laid upon it and His Ma jesty, pasinp the pen alonr the paper in the intTties of the metal, traced by these means the royal signature, which he could never remember in aDy other way.
