knowledge of Ihe tires at the Queen's
For the pnst month Walkerton has
been In a state of fear owing to the

was the Hartley lire. when, on Monday. August 11, the stables and barns
Of the iiotel were entirely destroyed.
On  .Monday, AugitBt IS. two attempts
.were made to set lire to the Queen's
hotel, and the following day. another|
attempt was made. All, however, were
discovered   before  the    flames    coultl
.gain any headway.
The local police were unable to find
I any clue to the perpetrator and fln-
nlly  the  people  of  the    town    asked
.Crown Attorney Dickinson to place a
man on ihe case. He notified the attorney-general, who detailed Detective
Reburn on the case, and the result was
ithe arrest of Russell today. The detee- !
itive is not satisfied that Russell wns |

another arrest shortly.
Russell, who claims to have no mo- |

Ilolton. Eng., Sept. 8.��� One of the
most curious cases, from a medical
point of view of what appears to be
"megalomania"  has  been   revealed   by
Ithe discovery of William Tunstali.
the Bolton laborer, who was supposed
to  have  gone  to  Australia  to  claim
jan Inheritance of several hundreds
of thousands of pounds. He w-as found
yesterday   by   the   police   at   Todmor-
ten, on the borders of Yorkshire and
j Lancashire, wandering about, hls mind
a blank, and physically a wreck. A
kindly policeman tcok charge of him,
'and he Is now under the care of his
sister.    A pathetic feature of the case j
lis that Tunstali still adheres to the
belief  that   he  has  n  huge    sum    ofj
money coining to him.
Tho Fortune.
The following is the history of ibis j
; peculiar .a?e. A week nr so ago ii wai
announced   that   William   Tunstali.   a
laborer in the employ of the Holton '
Corporation,  had   received   news  from.
Australia that his father-in-law, a Mr. j
v.-c-'woli. had died and  left him the
��� bulk   of   his   fortune,   variously   estl- |
mated at ��200,000 to ��400,000.   This'
news was afterwards embellished  bv
romantic details as to how Tunstali
j-came   to   be   the son-in-lsw of   bo
wealthy a man; how he saved the lives'
of two ladles at  a bathing resort  In
the Isle of Man. and how he came tol
mnrrv the da lighter of one of ihe lad-
'.-   Mr*-*   Westwell.    The story  grew I
in the telling.   It was said thai he had'
lost his wife, had fallen on evil times. ]
and   had   come  down   to   the  humble
position of a laborer under the Holton
enrno-it'en.     It   was  stated   also  that
he sailed in the Omrah iast Friday for
Australia, to take up  his  new  career
:i- the rawner of a silk industry and a
pearl fishery. '
Then  came  a curious development]
Telegrams despatched from villages In '>
Lancashire  were  received  at  Bolton
stating that Tunstali had died on hoard
ihn   ('���������..-ah    and   had   been   hurled   at
sea    The ofliies of origin of these tei- ���
egrams gave rise to suspicion, ami  il
was then  found that  the whole story
was a myth from beginning tn end. A
search was instituted for Tunotall.
with tbe n suit that be Is now back In ;
Holton, sightless. Mb mind a blank and
h's mental (acuities deranged. His |
onlv luggage consist-d of a tin hox,
which be had deposited at Todmorte'i
station iu the name nf Turner. All
"t'TTiptR to nuestlon Tunstali have
failed to ..licit any connected narra-
tlme. A'l he can sav Is that he wishes
that had never heard of the money. He
and a friend, he said, had been to
I ondon, but he Is unable to gay why
they did net embark on the Omrah,
he having left everything to his friend.
Tunstali still adheres to the story
of his fortune, paying: "I wish I had
never heard of the monev," Ile stated
that he started with n friend to embark for Australia, and that they parted In London. Why his friend left
him h" could not explain. Ills sister,
Mrs. Whalley, adheres to the belief In
her brother's fortune, end thinks that
the excitement of coining Into the
the ���.,-ri..v and th" publicity It attracted has for the time unhinged
Tunstall'a mind. Loenl'v the afTalr Is
regarded as a gigantic hoax.
