THE MAD SURGEON.
HORRIBLE CHILD BUTCHERIES IN
THE NAME OF SCIENCE.
Mysterious Murders That Terrorized
the People of Lyons—Startling Ex
posure of Fiendish Cruelty.
From the Chicago Ren'S.
From time to time, through the years
1832-3-4, the citizens of Lyons, France, were
horrified and excited greatly by the discov
ery of a senes of hideous crimes, the per
petrators of which baffled all detection,
and which seemed as unnatural and
purposeless —the work of sheer diabolism—
as it is possible for any crimes to be. The
victims were in all cases children and
youth, of both 6exes, ranging in age from
fi to 14 years. In every instance the
startling evidence of the crime was the same,
NAKED CORPSE OF A CHILD
found in the middle of some dark, obscure
street generally, though occasionally it
would be discovered in the midst of a
thoroughfare, where it would seem almost,
impossible that it could have been placed
without observation. These ghastly discov
eries were always made near dawn or in the
later hour; of tfie night. In some instances
the little bodies had evidently been cold in
death for several days, but 'in others they
were still almost warm when picked up. In
all cases the immediate cause of death bad
'been the same. Some sharp instrument had
been driven through the spinal marrow at
the base of the brain.
But there was another uniformity in the
manner of these horrible deeds, the inexpli
cability of which was overwhelming. Every
one of the corpses had suffered amputation
of some member. Sometimes a leg was
gone, sometimes an arm, sometimes only
a toe or two, or a finger, or a pair of
them. In all eases the amputations had
evidently been performed by a skillod sur
Those who studied carefully the phases of
these successive murders observed that the
operations seemed to have been made in
systematic series. Thus, in the summer of
1833 it was observable that every corpse
found had suffered amputation of either the
right or left arm at the elbow joint. There
were seven that had been thus multilated.
In the autumn of that year the joints
operated upon were all knees—and there
were nine ot them, In 1832 there had been
no operations upon joints, but three ampu
tations of thighs; five of upper arms and
eight of fore-arms attested the industry of
the fiend engaged in this awful butchery. It
was generally understood that this must all
THE WORK OF A MADMAN,
but, whoever he was, so cunningly did he
conceal himself that his identity was not
even suspected. His victims belonged to all
classes of society, and in no instance was
there any thing to encourage the suspicion
that the crime had been perpetrated for
any other purjiose than a passion for operat
ing upon a living body, with the subseduent
disposition of the subject in the most, con
venient fashion by death and tossing away
as worthless carrion w hen the operation was

exerted themselves to unearth the mysteri
ously bidden brother professional whose re
volting crimes thus endangered them all —
for no one could doubt that skillful hands
had done these bloody dcssls. They offered
a reward of 200,000 florins for the assassin.
Dr. Auguste Besmard, a physician of high
standing—whose only professional fault was
that he uad such a horror of blood that he
never could be induced to perform a capital
operation, or even to assist at one—beaded
the subscription of that great reward with
the sum of 50,000 florins. Dr. Gottfried
Dumreicber, a German surgeon of excellent
reputation, added 20.000 florins, and Dr.
Nicolai Vitarbo, an Italian, gave as much.
Then the others subscribed iu proportion to

Late in the spring of 1835 the murderer's
experimental amputation developed in a
new direction—taking off arms at the
shoulder, and there were no longer the deadly

victims had simply been allowed to bleed to
By this time not a few physicians had fled
from the city, fearing nn outbreak of the
mob at any 'moment, that might result in
their butchery as suspected ix-rsons. Of
course each, as he disappeared, was vehe
mently suspected be being tile guilty one,
and was followed and watched by detectives,
but the innocence of each in turn was de
monstrated by the recurrence of the atro
cities from the scene of which they had
fled. Manifestly, the guilty one felt him
self too secure from detection to care for
In the month of June of the year last
mentioned, the veil was lifted, and in a most
unexpected and starting wciy. M. Pierre
Jacquelin, a well-to-do silk manufacturer of
Lyons, bad the good and ill fortune to
possess a very pretty wife, at least twenty
years his junior. His fortune was so far
good that she was one of the prettiest,
plumpest, most voluptuous-lookiug and
light-hearted of women, who never, in the
slightest degree, troubled herself or him
about, the possibly infidelities with which a
man growing old sometimes seek* to beguile,
by new attractions, his consciousness of
advancing age. And it was so far ill, that
Madame Cora Jacquelin fully indemnified
herself for any short-comings in his
marital relations toward her by kind re
ciprocations of the very earliest atten
A LOVER NEARER HER OWN AGE.
M Jacquelin more than suspected that
such was the fact, but he was philosophic
and, after due deliberation on the subject,
resolved to feign entire unconsciousness of

As he spoke he donned his most ittrlispen

in the darkness.
M. Jacquelin was already knocking on his
wife's door. There was no time to lose. In
his stocking feet Farini slipped out of the
window, seized the stout branches of the
ivy vine that covered the gable wall of the
house with its foliage, and working his wav
along it, some twenty feet, clutched a limb
of a Dig shade tree and swung himself over
among its foliage, thirty feet above the
ground. At that moment Mme. Jacquelin
opened the door for her husband, yawned
sleepily, and said to him;
“How late you are to-night, my dear!”
THE LOVER IN THE TREE-TOP
listened uneasily to some sounds in the
darkness below him. They seemed to be
low, suppressed.growls and the gnashings
of teeth. He fancied that he could'see a
white form away down on the ground and
two eyes that glared up at, him expectantly,
hungrily. There was nothing supernatural
about that presence. He knew too well what
it was. M. Jaequelin’s English bulldog,
silent and ferocious, was down there wait
ing for him Decidedly, it would be unwise
He clambered across to the opposite side
of the tree, waited until the moon came out
from among the clouds sufficiently for him
to see what he was doing, and succeeded iu
swinging himself into a second tree. In like
manner he passed to a third and fourth.
That carried him beyond a boundary fence,
but out of reach of the disappointed dog, and
ho descended to the ground.
Of where he was he had not the slightest
idea, further than that, he was in the open
air, in somebody’s garden, surrounded by a
very high brick wall with sharp spikes in
its stone coping. A long, low brick house
occupied one side of the inclosure. A car
riage-house and stable were on a second side
at right angles with the house. His arms
were too tired for him to climb up the tree
again, and try some more of that adventur
ous aerial way. Clearly he had no other re
source left than to enter the house—at the
risk of being discovered and
MISTAKEN FOR A BURGLAR
and make his way through it to the street.
He tried the carriage-house and stable, but
they were locked up. Then he tried succes
sively three doors in the house, and the third
proved to be unfastened. Being in his
stocking-feet, and having naturally a
step almost as light as a cat’s, his tread
was noiseless, and the house seemed de
Moving cautiously he passed through two
rooms, a nallwa#,-. and, gaining confidence
as he went, was about to push open another
door, when, as his hand was upon the handle
of the lock, his motion was arrested by a
slight sound beyond that seemed to him was
caused by the' upsetting of a bottle on a
table. Listening keenly, he could hear some
body moving about arid muttering exclama
tions of impatience.
Slowly nnd noiselessly he opened the door
an inch' at a time, until he had a full view
of the apartment before him, and stood al
most paralyzed by astonishment and horror.
The room was a large one.
Some twenty feet from the door, beneath
a very strong light thrown down from large
lamps under a bright reflector, were two
operating tables, upon each of which a body
—that of a child or youth—was extended.
Between the heads of those tables stood a
third, on which gleamed an appalling assort
ment of knives, saws, and other surgical in
A tali, thin mail, with a head bald like a
tonsure, stood between the tables, holding
in one hand a bottle and with the other
hand mopping up some liquid spilled on the
instrumental tabic. He dia hot seem to hear
the noise of the opening door.
Inan instant the truth flashed upon Far
ini’smind that he was looking upon
THE MYSTERIOUS ASSASSIN
of the children, and that two victims to
gether lay before him. Whether they were
dead or only under the influence of some
drug that stilled their senses be could not
tell, but he suspected that they were alive,
from seeing the man lift their eyelids and
look at the pupils of their eyes. As he
looked Far ini's eyes liecame accustomed to
the light, and he recognized to his unspeak
able horror the smaller child on one of the
tables as pretty little Florence, the daughter
of Mme. Jacquelin, and, perhaps, himself.
The tall, thin man picked up a long, keen
knife, approached the little girl and
stood balancing the instrument, ready to
Among the many queer accomplishments
that Farini had picked up in the course of
his wandering life was an extraordinary
skill in knife-throwing, that he had learned
in Mexico, and from his habits in Spaniah-
American countries, it had become a second
nature to him to carry a big, heavy, long
knife, two-edged at the point and keen as a

waist-belt. Now he drew it, stood
sidewise to give free play to his right
arm, swung the long, ugly weapon by its
point and measured his distance for throw
The next instant, just as the butcher was
about slicing the tender flash before him,
Far ini’s knife flew like a dart of steely light
ning across the room and
TRANSFIXED THE ASSASSIN'S SKULL,
piercing it completely from temple to tem
ple. The wretch sank dead upon the floor,
and Farini sprang across the room. Snatch
ing up little Florcence in bis arms ha satis
fied himself in an instant that she was still
alive and unhurt Ho gave but one look of
startled surprise and horror at the other
figure exposed, a strange creature that
seemed a monster. Then he fieri, with the
child in his arms, to the street and the front
door of his mother’s house, where his vigor
ous knocking soon roused the inmates and
A servant was dispatched for the worthy
physician, Dr. August Desmard, who was a
near neighbor, to come and care for the lit
tle girl. In a few moments the servant re
turned reporting that she was unable to
summon tne doctor, whose front door was
open, without entering the house, and she
was afruid to do that.
Another doctor soon appeared and restored
the child to consciousness, when she said
that she had slipped out of the house, after
her nurse supposed she had gone to bed, had
run out to see some little neighboring play
ninte and was on her way home when a
cloak was thrown over her head, she did
not know by whom, and after that she
knew nothing until she found herself again*
in her mother’s arms. By this time the
gendarmes had arrived, and Farini, frankly
telling what lie had seen and had done, led
them to the house from which he had res
cued the child. There
A STARTLING DISCOVERT
awaited them. The child-murderer was no
other than Dr. August Desmard, the philan
thropist. who was so tender-hearted that
he could not boa surgeon; and who offered
a reward of 50,000 francs for the discovery
of the assassin to divert suspieiou from him
From copious diary notes found among
his papers, it was made perfectly plain that
he had for several years tieen insane upon
the subject of amputations nnd the actual
grafting on the human body of limbs mid
members, and hud sacrificed a number of
lives in his merciless experiments. The lit
tle corpses t lmt he had used he got rid of by
tho ingenious contrivance of a trap-box
under the sst of his carriage, which he
could operate from the inside of the vehicle,
so u* to open its floor nnd drop the body

the knowledge of tho driver, nnd with
scarcely a possibility of diseovorery
