STOLE $4,OOO,(BO IN JEWELS Stanislaus Zalog W -itee from Chicago Solution of the Paulino Monas tery Puzzle. 4 I Warsaw, Russian Poland.—The mys tery suiTo;:nding the theft from tte Pauline Monastery at Crenstochcwa ot jewels and votive offerings valued at 14,000,000, which since 1309 Ue.3 puzEled the brothers, seems at length to be solved by the receipt of a letter from Chicago. The writer ot thi3 communication to the monastery confesses that he, Stanislaus Zalog, was the thief; that he was then a lay brother, and that Father Damatius, who Is now serving a sentence In the Siberian mines tor the murder of his cousin, was not im plicated, as has always been sup posed. The letter seems genuine and the Russian police are taking steps to have Zalog arrested, but the former brother defies the police to trace hiai. It appears that Zalog remained at the monastery more than a year after the theft and not until Damatius was ar rested did he escape to America The robbery of the jewels which decked the ikon of the and Child In the Pauline Monastery cre ated a great stir three years ago, and when, in October, 1910, Father Dama tius was arrested In Austria for the murder of his cousin, Vaclav Macocn —which crime he confessed —it wan believed that the motive for the dead was to b« found in a desire to shut the mouth of a man who could testify against him la the matter of the rob bery. Damatlua admitted the murder, but denied the theft of the jewel*. He ad mitted also that he had taken money from the treasury and bad squandered it upon Helena Ostrowska, wife of the man he murdered. He told how his servant, Stanislaus, evidently the man now confessing the thefts, had assists ed him in disposing of the body in a large ottoman, which together they thrdw into the River Varta. Stanislaus Zalog disappeared and has never been heard of until now. The most valuable thing stolen was the jeweled crown from the head of (be Virgin.

Twenty men arrived from the west at eleven o'clock. Then the work was under way In earnest. It waa found that the transfer plat forma and the platform In front ol the old building bad not been de stroyed by the Are, so It watf decided to erect a temporary building directly upon the floor of the larger transfer platform.

' % ITffte.:- ***** ■ ISM I MS Man's Eyes Open Since Stricken With Sorrow. Spends His Nights at Work and Com., plains of No % Weariness —Fur>> nishes Puzzle Physicians Cannot 3olve. Trenton, N. J. —Having been with out sleep for thirty yeara, Albert E. Herpin, a Trenton man, at last com plains of feeling weary. Mentally he experiences no weariness, but he says he is physically weak and believes a nap of only five minutes' duration would give him new life. Physicians who have been following the sleepless wonder's case for years say he Is merely suffering from overwork, and lo not agree with the theory that so many years of wakefulness has caused bis physical health to fall. Bine« the power of sleep left him Herpin has never kefore expressed a desire to even doze. He has shown no lassitude day or night. The only rest he gets Is when h« sits In a com fortable chair for several hours each night, bui he does not even then close his eyes. His sleeplessness has brought him :onsiderable money, as he thought >ut Inventions during some of his resting periods that proved successful. He works every day. excepting Sun lay, in a local pottery, and he spends most of the night working out Inven tions or decorating pottery for friends. Herpin la always In good spirits and when he reports to his employers in the morning he seems as fresh as iny of the other workmen who hsd lours of sound sleep. Those who work with the sleepless man assert that he keeps constantly busy and ex hibits not the slightest symptoms of lrowsiness. The only complaint that Herpin has made because of his oon lltlon Is thst he becomes lonely fre quently at night when he has nothing to keep hlra busy. Herpin lost his ability to sleep aft »r the death of hla wife, 30 years ago. He was then 30 years old. He con sulted physicians, who studied his itrange condition, but who were un ible to help him. Prom time to time he has been secretVy watched at night. The medical men who undertook this task are convinced the man has not ilept a moment since first attacked by the strange malady from which ha is t>elteved to be suffering. Experts from all parts of the United States have visited Herpln's home aad itudied his condition snd have gone iway convinced thst he has been iwake longer than any man in the world. Herpin enjoys the visits of .hese experts, ss many of them remsln with him for nights. He says he never Mlteves he will sleep again. __________________ ' •** GERM IS SLAIN BY HOT AIR French Physician Discovers New Method Which May Revolu tionize Treatment.
