And they went, the three of them, in

That was the beginning. Helen, un

There was a dead silence, and pres

Halleck found it impossible to get a

HE SOUGHT DEATH.
The Unfortunate Napoleon 111. at the
Battle of Sedan.
Sarah Bernhardt mentions in her me
moirs that Napoleon 111. had two
horses shot under him at Sedan. Some
having thrown doubt on her statement
and denied that the emperor was ever
iu personal danger at the time, Baron
Verly, sou of the late colonel of tlie
Cent Gardes, gives what lie affirms to
be the authentic account of the unhap
py sovereign’s persistent attempts to
court death when he saw that defeat
was unavoidable. On Sept. 1. 1870,
at 0 o’clock in the morning, Marshal
MacMahon, returning wounded to Se
dan. met the emperor riding out to
Bazeilies. Napoleon 111. realized that
the situation was desperate, lie rode
slowly out. depressed and thoughtful,
under a hall of shot. During an hour
he inspected the positions. Bullets
rained on his escort. Captain d’Hende
court was killed a few feet away from
the emperor. The latter, deliberately
seeking death, alighted, ordered liis es
cort to remain behind an embankment
and walked r;< to a cemetery on a
height, where lie stayed for another
hour, exposed to fire. lie mounted
again and rode to another part of the
field. General de Courson and Captain
de Trecesson were dangerously wound
ed by his side, but not a bullet hit him.
The emperor at last seemed to despair
of meeting his death as he sought it
and rode back to Sedan at noon. In
the town itself shells fell thick, and
while the emperor was riding with his
escort up the Grand Rue one burst

Fame In His Line.

It Is Now Applied to the Most Danger
ous Criminals With Whom the Offi

Nitroglycerin In Safe Bursting.
In the expressive slang that per
meates police circles throughout the
country, a “yegg” is one of the dan
gerous criminal class.
The question is often asked. “What
is a yegg, and how did the expression
originate? An answer to the latter
part of the query will lead to an eluci
dation of the first
Some years ago, when the United
States government was experimenting
with high explosives, wishing to secure
some death dealing and destructive
shell that would cause lj.ore damage
than any before manufactured, some
one suggested that Introglycorln tie
tried. Up to that time this most pow
erful of explosives had uot been util
ized in this way.
The government experts went to
work, aud the results of their experi
ments were from time to time pub
lished broadcast through the commu
nity. At last they succeeded in mak
ing a shell in which nitroglycerin was
the chief component part and which
made all former ones sink into Insig
In a town In the middle west at tho
time there lived a man named John
Yegg. In his earlier days he had been
one of the most expert electricians as
well as all round experienced mechan
ics in the country. Later, through drink
and bad associates, he bad descended
to a life of crime, li is principal art be
ing that of safe blowing.
lie was attracted by "the published
accounts of the experiments of the
government authorities with nitro
glycerin. The thought struck him,
Why could not this be used in blowing
The method at that time was to drill
a hole in the safe to be wrecked, fill
this with powder or dynamite and
then touch the fuse. This method,
however, required considerable time to
pull off “a job” and was uoisy and
Yegg went to work on the nitro
glycerin method. lie tried it, and it
was a complete success. Furthermore,
after he had performed job after job
he had the police of the country baf
fled. They did uot know how the
work was dpue. Yegg instructed
others In the art, and soon from one
eud of the country to the other safes
were being wrecked, but by what man
ner no one knew.
Yegg’s method was to take some of
the explosive which he and those with
him called “soup”—and, by the way,
this term Is still extant—and pour it
in the crack of the safe near the
hinges of the door. The small aperture
was then covered with soap to hold
the explosive in place. The fuse was
applied, and with the explosion off
went the doors, slick and clean. Tho
entire job took but a few minutes. It
remained for a young Pinkerton de
tective to solve the matter on a safo
that was blown in Cold wo ter, Mich.,
where a bank was wrecked and many
thousands of dollars secured.
The crime was traced to Yegg and
some of his companions, and they
were found guilty and sent to prison.
Thereafter those who employed the
nitroglycerin instead of the older
methods were called “yeggmen” or
This was the beginning of the term,
but since that time the application of
it Lias grown greatly. Today a “yegg,"
viewed from whatever asjieet, is the
most dangerous criminal with whom
the police of the country have to deal.
He is one who rides the country o’er
on freight trains, working through the
south in the winter and migrating to
more exhilarating climes during the
summer. He will beg when he is
hungry and will steal and commit
murder when he sees an opportunity
of bene Ming himself.
Todn' 1 here are thousands of “yeggs”
scat tei. I throughout the country. Most
of them belong to some certain band,
each one of which has a leader. He
is the king. It is his duty to enlist
recruits. To him also is shipped all
the loot, and he in turn converts it into
money and places the amount to the
credit of the member sending it in.
For this the king receives a commis
Most of the “yegg” gang3 carry what
is known as a “kitten” with them. The
“kitten” is a boy, young man or crip
ple, whose duty it is to visit houses
and places of business, apparently beg
ging food or selling shoestrings, lead
pencils, etc., and who then reports to
the gang “the lay of the land” so that
when the time comes for pulling oft
the job all are familiar with the prem
ises. The “kittens” are often runaway
boys and later become “yeggs” them
selves, destined to follow a life of
crime and degradation.—Pittsburg Ga
