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, simply the 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 geon. 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 be 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 over. The physicians and surgeons of Lyons, alannwl by the manifest, growth of a tend ency, especially among the low er classes, to view them ell with suspicion, energetical! y 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 their means. The ingenuity of the best detectives of France was employed, but ALL IN VAIN. The mysterious butcheries still occurred at intervals. 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 thrust* in the spinal marrow. The little victims had simply been allowed to bleed to death. 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 flight. 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 tions of 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 "'hat was going on, so long as there was no public scandal to compel Ins cognizance. An understanding to that effect, without words, seemed to have been arrived at between him #tul her, and the worthy pair got along very we n together. They had one child only , a charming little golden-haired girl • years old, named Florence, who did not at, el! resemble him, but he was very fond of h' r. just the same. She looked much like a very dear old friend of her mammas, an ibuifin named Carlo Farini, who bad loiig •Frii ‘a friend of the family.” Farini waa an actor, who had traveled jramh, possessed a great, deal of versatility, had picked up many novel accomplishments m the strange countries he had visited and "'as a reinnkablv handsome fellow, athletic, ngile as a cat and courageous. For eight or m.ic years past ho had liver! in Lyons, bav in? seemingly given up his penchant, for r"j l! g since making the acquaint nice of I ■ otty Mme. Jacquelin. Ho generally had engagement in one of the Lyons theatres, cut, if he had not had no reason to t rouble Jjmsclf about means, so long as Cora loved One evening in June, 1835, he and Mme. "wquolin were together in tbo room of the “tier when the steps of THE INOPPORTUNE HUSBAND c'w ? heard on the stairs, coming up to her .?’■, had returned home unusually “1 i.v from hi* piquet club at the cafe, where • 'vis wont to spend his evenings, and they >en too deeply engrossed with each J* r tonotice liis entrance to the house tu , r , *• so close to the only door of exit n7>H Ji 1 0 Wl|, M no longer—its upon former rv,,*' 1 . s "shda out to a closet on the t•!.. °i" an< * thence slip away when the old aiu!' t niH " had passed on i'uto hi* wife’s and the way was clear to the m,A P u thurt not let him find you here, exclaimed Cora, ‘Tor that situatio 0 and ' l*** h' xn to tako notice of the not }>• uueo&y<” answered her lover; T have been prudent, enough to look out for my lino of retreat iu case of such an emer gency as this. ’ As he spoke he donned his most ittrlispen sihle garment-- very rapidly. His shoes, had !**n Kicked aside and he could not find them 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 to descend. 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 serted. 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 struments. 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 use it. 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 razor. When he escaped from Mine. Jacque lin’s room that night he had left his shoes, but had not neglected to take his knife with him. thrust in its scabbard, under his 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 ing it. 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 brought assistance. 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 belf 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 through w hile going at full speed, without the knowledge of tho driver, nnd with scarcely a possibility of diseovorery The figure ou the other table was a hid - eous evidence of the doctor’d infernal skill. It was that of a lad about 15 years of ago that had been cut apart and patched together with fragment* of other bodies in the most surprising fashion. One arm wa* reduced so that the wrist, was but three inches from the shoulder. The other had been extended to uiuriy five fret iu length by added sec THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY. JUNE 5, 1887-TWELVE PAGES. tions, in which were included two elbow joints, and, to the infinite astonishment of other surgeons, those joints worked fairly well. The legs had been remodeled in the same wav. I’Altogether the poor wretch was a start ling proof that the operations upon him had tieeii conducted with the most wonder ful skill, and Dr. Desmard’s papers demon strated that it had been his intent, when he had completed his awful work, to exhibit him and confess what he had done in the interest of science. Thp tortures to which the lad had been subjected had made an idiot of him, and he could not tell who he was or how long he had lieen under tor ment. In a vague way he remembered that t here had been two others, permanent vic tims, like himself, but they had died, and their bones were found in shallow graves under the stable floor, as was also a miscel - laneous collection of arnt and leg bones of children. The boy lived but a short time. Dr. Desmard’s ltody was never given sepulture, having been given over for dissection, and his great fortune was confiscated for the municipal orphan asy lums. Farini never fully confessed bow he came to he in the doctor’s back garden, but it was readily suspected, and, indeed, merry Mme. Jacquelin did not deny her knowl edge of it when her husband died, which he did a couple of years after, when she be come Mme. Farini. * * * * Young or middle-aged men suffering from nervous debility or other del icate diseases, however induced, speedily and permanently cured.
