DETECTIVE ACUMEN.

Unfortunately, the girl was said to have been a scion of Royalty; hence obstacles were supposed to have been thrown in the way of truthful elucidation, and a servant girl was arraigned and acquitted for the crime which Constance afterwards admitted she had perpetrated. The child was strangled and its throat cut afterwards. Fortunately Wicher lived to have his professional judgment amply vindicated.—l am, etc.,
