THE PRINCE OF DARKNES& An Unfortunate Victim. j Fear of the devil, coupled with the excitement prevailing in view of the Czar's visit, had unhinged the mental faculties of a wealthy Paris merchant. Like the polioeman who went mad about the Russian Emperor, the latest lunatic was a public danger, as he insisted on discharging firearms in the street. He rushed out from his, house near the Lyons Station last night, armed with two revolvers, and began a brisk fusiladejan the trees and walls near him. When he had used up all his ammunition he ran howling along the highway pursued by two policemen, who, after an exciting chase, brought him to bay. The unfortu- nate merchant was under the impression that be had to carry on a campaign against the Prince of j Darkness, who had transformed him into another Faust aud wanted his soul. Convinced M to the fact that the devil was dragging him to his undee- ground abode, he resolved to take arms against hisformidable enemy.{The|merchant|is supposed to have lately been much impressed by reading about the worshippers of Satan, who have a meeting- place near his residence. These people have beett regarded as serious by some, but no sensible person believes in their antics and incantatioas, which are adopted for advertisement purposes. i — i
