"Dr." Francis Tumblety, known throughout the United States, and Canada as "the great Indian doctor," has come to grief in New Orleans for picking the pocket of a government clerk. Twenty years ago Tumblety was up high. He dressed extravagantly and sported a number of decorations, which he said he had received from the "crowned heads of Europe," and they never denied it through the press. His turn-out resembled an aristocratic circus wagon, and he was a man of many alleged wares. His forte lay in curing blood disease, and for many years his annual income could not have been less than $10,000. A year ago, he was arrested while "practising his profession" in Toronto, Ont., for a serious offense which, however, was reduced to a common assault. Leaving there he wended his way Southward, and was at last brought up in the New Orleans calaboose. Sic transit. - N.Y. World.
