BOY'S TERRIBLE PLIGHT. A Belfast schoolboy, named Samuel Atchison, who was missed on Christmas Eve has been found wasted to a skeleton, and at the point of death in the attic of an untenanted house. Rivers and ponds had been dragged by the police, and many search parties had gone out, but it was not until Sunday that the attention of a neigh- bour was drawn to a faint knocking in the attic of the house and the boy was discovered. The police found the inside of the door all clawed where the boy in his agonies of starvation had sought to tear through the panels wih his nails, and even with his teeth. The boy, as he lay moaning and tossing in bed, cried out again and again to imaginary assailants to have pity on him, but there was nothing coherent in his speech. How he came to be in the house, and why the handle should have been removed from the door, are all qutS^ions which are greatly puzzling the police. The boy is in grave danger, but there is some slight hope of his ultimate re- covery.
