THAT PLAGR IB "THE PAIR."

at Bridgeport. How many persona ffiive
left the train?"
"No one has left the sleepers. "
"When you say that no one has left
the sleepers, I suppose you mean you
saw no one leave?"
"Nol I mean just what I said. Ihave
sent the porters through tho coaches,
and they report that all our passengers
are in their berths. But hero we come to
a point If no one has left tho train,
then tho thief must be aboard?"
"The woman when she discovered her
loss concluded to remain aboard and go
on to New York. All the other passen
gers save one aro booked for New York.
That one is a man, and he is now dress
ing, as his destination is Stamford. If
he leaves, he may taVo the jewels with
him, yet what am I to do?"
"State the facts of the case to him. If
he is innocent, he will willingly submit
to being searched. If, however, ho re
fuses well, we can be guided by cir
cumstances. Call him in here now."
A few minutes later a foreign and dis
tinctly French appearing man entered.
In speech he disclosed his origin, but
tho accent was slight. He was of fine
appearance, dignified and gentlemanly.
Mr. Barnes sat at the window looking
out. The conductor with considerable
hesitancy explained tho case, concluding
"You see, my dear sir, this, is an awk
ward business, but wo are so suro that
the thief is still aboard that"
"That you hesitato to allow me to
leave the train, eh, monsieur, is it not
so? Yet why should there be any trou
ble? An honest man must never be hurt
in his feelings when he is asked to assist
the law, oven though for the moment he
is himself a what you call it suspect?
In this case it is so simple if only tho
honest men will make no trouble. They
will say to you, 'Search me 1' You do
so, and at last ono comes who says,
'You insult me!' That one is of course
the thief, eh, monsieur? Doyouuotagreo
with me?" Ho turned toward Air.
Barnes, addressing this last remark to
him. Tho detective looked at him a mo
mtnt steadily, as was his wont when ho
meant to remember a face. Tho French
man roturned tho gaze undisturbed.
"I said almost the samo thing to the
conductor before yon came in," said Mr.
"Exactly so. Now, then, with your
permission I will disrobe. Look, if you
please, most carefully. Aly honor is at
Etake. The more carefully you examine
the less suspicion can attach to me here
after." The conductor mado a thorough
search, emptying every pocket and tak
ing every precaution. Ho did not expect
to find anything, but it was essential
that extreme care should be observed.
Nothing was found, and the man re
sumed his clothing.
"Now, if you please, I havo with me
but two small satchels. If the porter
will bring them, I will unlock them for
you. I have no trunk, as I only went to
Boston for a day's trip."
The satchels were brought, examined
and nothing found.
"Now, gentlemen, I supposo I am
free, as wo aro at my station. I shall
only remain hero a few hours and will
then go on to New York. If you should
wish to see me again, I shall stop at the
Hoffman House. Hero is my card. Au
Air. Barnes took the card and scruti
"What do you think?" asked the con-,
"Think? Ob, you mean of thatfel-j
low. You need not worry about him.
There is not a shadow of suspicion i
against him at present. Besides, should
wo ever want him I could find him'
again. Here is his name Alphonse'
Thauret card genuine, too, of French,
make and stylo of type. We can dismiss
him now and turn our attention to the !
other passengers. Do you suppose Ij
could have au interview with the worn-
"You Ehall havo it if you wish. We
will not consult her -wishes in the mat
tor. Tho affair is too serious. "
"Very well, then, send her in here
and let me have a few words with her
alono. Don't tell her that lam a detect
ive.. Leave that to me. "
A few minutes later a tall woman,
apparently about 45 years of age, en
tered. Sbo was not handsome, yet had
a pleasing face. As she seated herself
she looked keenly at Air. Barnes in a
Etealthy manner, which should have at
tracted that gentleman's -earnest
thought. Apparently he did not notice
it. Tho woman spoke first.
"The conductor has sent me in here to
bco you. What havo you to do with the
"Nothing? Then why"
"When I say I have nothing to do
with the case, I mean simply that it
rests with you whether I shall undertake
to restore to you your diamonds or not
I look after such things for this road,
but if the loser does not wish any action
taken by the road, why, then, we drop the
matter. Do you wish mo to make a
search for tho stolen property?"
"I certainly wish to recover the jew
els, they are very valuable, hut I am
aot sore that I desire to place the case in
the hands of a detective."
"Who said that I am a detective?"
"Are you aot one?"
Xr. Br9g tafitajgd a monwatbet
chain which draws the neoDle to the bis: store every dav.
quickly decided on ins course.
"I am a detective connected with a
private agency. Therefore I can under
take to look up the thief without pub
licity. That is your main objection o
placing the case in my hands, is it not?"
"You are shrewd. There aro reasons,
family reasons, why I do not wish this
loss published to the world. If you can
"But the conductor icants to search mc.r
undertake to recover tho jewels and keef
this robbery out of the newspapers 1
! would pay you welL "
"I will tako the case. Now answer
me a few questions. First, your nama
"Aly name is Koso Alitchel, and I am
living temporarily in a furnished flat in
East Thirtieth street, New York. I have
recently como from New Orleans,, my
home, and am looking for suitable apart
ments." Air. Barnes took out his note book
and made a memorandnm of tho address.
"Married or single?"
"Alarried, but my husband has been
dead for several years. "
"Now aboat theso jewels. How did
it happen that you wero traveling with
so valuable a lot of jewelry?"
"I havo not lost jewelry, but jewels.
They are unset stouos of rare beauty
diamonds, rubies, pearls and other pre
cious stones. When my husband died,
ho left a largo fortune, but thero were
also large debts, which swallowed up
everything save what was duo him from
ono creditor. This was au Italian noble
man I need not mention his name
who died almost at the wmo time as
my husband. Tho executors communi
cated with me, and our correspondence
culminated in my accepting these jowels
in payment of Jhc debt. Ireceivcd them
in Boston yesterday, and already I have
lost them. It is too cruel too cruel!"
She gripped her hands together convul
sively, and a few tears coursed down
her face. Air. Barnes mused a lew mo
ments and seemed not to be observing
"What was the value of these jowels?"
"Ono hundred thousand dollars."
"By what express company wero they
sent to yon?" The question was a sim
ple one, and Air. Barnes asked it rather
mechanically, though ho was wondering
if the thief had come across tho ocean
from France, perhaps. He was therefore
astonished at the effect produced. Tho
woman arose suddenly, her whulo man
ner changed. Sho replied with her lips
compressed tightly, as though laboring
under somo excitement.
"That is not essential. Perhaps I am
telling tocuunch to a stranger anyway.
Come to my apartment thi3 evening,
and I will give yon further particulars
if I decide to leave the case in your
hands. If not, I will pay yon for what
ever trouble you havo in tho interim.
Air. Barnes watched her leave the
room without offering to detain her or
making any comment on her singular
manner. Without rising from his seat
he looked out of tho window and strum
med on the pane. What he thought it
would bo difficult to tell, but presently
he said aloud, though there was no one
to hear him :
"I think sho is a liar!"
Having relieved himself thus, he re
turned to his own coach. He found two
gentlemen in the toilet room allowing
themselves to be searched, laughing over
tho matter as a hugo joke. He passed
by and entered his own compartment,
which the porter had put in order. One
after another the few passengers arose,
heard of the robbery and cheerfully
passed through the ordeal of being
At last his patience was rewarded by
seeing tho enrtaius of No. 8 moving,
and a moment later a fine IsrA-ing young
man of six and twenty emerged, partly
dressed, and went toward tho toilet.
Air. Barnes sauntered after him, and en
tered the smoking room. He had scarce
ly seated himself before a man entered,
who was evidently the other occupant of
lection 8. While this second man was
washing, the' conductor explained to
tho other about tho robbery, and sug
gested that he allow himself to be search
ed. By this time the conductor was be
coming excited. They were within a ,
few minutes of New York, and all bis 1
passengers had been examined save these
two. Yet these two looked more aristo
cratic than any of the others. He was
astonished, therefore, to observe that the
young man addressed seemed very much
disturbed. He stamm ered and stuttered,
Feeking words, and finally in a hoarse
voice addressed his companion :
"Bob, do you hear, there's been a
His friend Bob was bending over the
water basin, his head and face covered
with a stiff soap lather and his hands
rebbiap his skin Timorously. Be for

under the water, held it so submerged
a moment, then stood erect with eyes
shut and reached for a towel. In a mo
ment he had wiped the suds from his
eyes, and looking at his friend he an
swered most unconcernedly :
"What of it?"
"But but tho conductor wants to
"All right. What are you afraid of?
You are not tho thief, are you?"
' "No but"
"Thero is no but in it. If you are in
nocent, let them go through you." Then
with a light laugh he turned to the glass
and began arranging his cravat. His
friend looked at him a moment with an
expression which no one but Mr. Barnes
understood.. Tho detective had recog
nized by their voices that it was Bob
who had made the wager to commit a
crime, and it was plain that his friend
already suspected him. His fright was
occasioned by tho thought that perhaps
Bob had stolen the jewels during the
night and then secreted them in his
clothing, whero if found the suspicion
would not be on Bob.
Mr. Barnes was amnsed as he saw tho
young man actually searching himself.
In a few minutes, with a sigh of in
tense relief, having evidently discovered
nothing foreign in his pockets, he turned
to tho conductor who stood waiting and
"Mr. Conductor, " ho began, "I fear
that my conduct has seemed suspicious.
I can't explain, but nevertheless I am j
perfectly willing to have yon make a
search. Indeed I am anxious that it
should be a thorough one. " The exam
ination was made, and, as with the
others, nothing was found.
"Hero is my card. I am Arthur Ran
dolph, of the firm of J. Q. Randolph &
Son, bankers." Mr. Randolph stood a
trifle more erect as he said this, and the
poor conductor felt that he had done
him a grievous wrong. Mr. Randolph
continued: "This is my friend, Robert
Leroy MitcheL I will vouch for him. "
At the name Mitchel Mr. Barnes was
a trifle startled. .It was tho same as
that which had been given by the wom
an who had been robbed. At this point
Mr. Mitchel, a man of 45, with a clas
sic face, spoko :
"Thanks, Arthur, I can take care of
The conductor hesitated a moment,
and then addressed Mr. Mitchel :
"I regret very mtch the necessity
which compels me to ask you to allow
yourself to bo searched, but it is my
"My dear sir, I understand perfectly
that it is your duty and havo no per
sonal feelings against you. Nevertheless
I distinctly refuse."
"You refuse:" Tho words camo from
the other three men together. It is diffi
cult to tell which was tho most sur
prised. Randolph turned palo and
leaned against tho partition for support
Mr. Barnes became slightly excited and
"That amounts to a tacit acknowledg
ment of guilt, since every other man
has been searched." Mr. Mitchel's re
ply to this was 'even moro of a surprise
than what ho had said before.
"That alters tho case. If everyone
else has submitted, so will L" Without
more ado he divested himself of his
clothing. Nothing was found. The
satchels of both men wero brought, but
tho search was fruitless. The conductor
glanced at tho detective holplessly, but
that gentleman was looking out of the
window. One who knew Mr. Barnes
could havo told that he was angry, for
he was biting the end of bis mustache.
"Here we are at the Grand Central,"
said Mr. Mitchol. "Are wo at liberty to
leave the train?" Receiving an acquies
cent nod, the two friends walked to the
other end of tho coach. Mr. Barnes ab
ruptly started, up, and without a word
jumped from the train as it slowly roll
ed into the great depot. He went up to
a man quickly, said a few words in an
undertone, and both went back toward
the train. Presently the woman who had
been robbed came along, and as she
passed out of the building Mr. Barnes'
companion followed her. He himself
was about to depart, when, feeling a
light tap upon his shoulder, ho turned
and faced Mr. Mitchel.
"Mr. Barnes," said tho latter, "I
want a few words with yon. Will you
breakfast with mo in the restaurant?"
"How did you know that my name is
"I did not know, though I do now,"
and he laughed in a complacent manner
which jarred en Air. Barnes. TLa de
tective felt that this man was getting
the best of him at every turn. But for
all that he was only the more determined
to trap him in the end. Accustomed to
think quickly, he decided to accept the
invitation, considering that he could
lose nothing and might gain much by
a further acquaintance. Tho, two men
therefore went below to tho eating room
and seated themselves at a small table.
After giving the waiter a liberal order
Air. Mitchel began :
"Won't it be best for us to understand
one another from the outset, Mr.
"I don't know what you mean."
"I think you do. You asked me a mo
ment ago how I know your name. As I
said, I did not know it, though I suspect
ed it. Shall I tell you why?"
'Certainly, if you wish. "
Perhaps I am a fool to show yon
your first blunder in this game, since
you are evidently enlisted against me,
but as I gent my friend off alono pur-
If vou are not alreadv in
posely for the chance ot doing so 1 can
not resist the temptation."
"Stop a moment, Mr. Mitchel. I am
not such a fool as you take me to be. I
know what you are going to say. "
"Ah, indeed ! That is clever. "
"You are about to tell me that I made
an ass of myself when I spoke in tho
coach upon refusing to be searched. "
"Well, I should not have put it quite
so harshly, but the fact is this : When
you deliberately followed Randolph in
to the toilet room, I became suspicious,
being, as I was, at your heels. When
the conductor spoke to me, I refused
purposely, to watch the' effect upon you,
with the result, as you now see, that I
had my suspicion confirmed. I knew
that you were a detective, and, that
point gained, there was no further rea
son for refusing the conductor."
"As I said, I acted like an ass. But I
did not need this warning. It will not
occur again, I assure you."
"Of course I Eeo now that yon over
heard our conversation last night, and,
such being the case, you naturally sus
pected me of this robbery. But I am
wondering, if you did overhear our talk,
why you did not watch mo all night."
To this Mr. Barnes mado no reply. "I
have ono favor to ask."
"What is it?"
"That you reveal to no one the fact
that I have undertaken to commit a
crime. You of course aro at liberty to
play the ferret and convict rue if you
"As surely as you commit a crime, so
surely will I convict you of it," replied
Mr. Barnes. "It will be perhaps to my
interest to keep what I know to myself,
but it will not do to mako any promises
to you. I must bo free to act as circum
"Very good. I will tell you whero I
am stopping and I give you permission
to call to see mo whenever you please,
day or night. I havo a suit of rooms at
the Fifth Avenue. Now let me ask you
one question. Do you think that I com
mitted this robbery?"
"I will answer yon with a question.
Did you commit this robbery?"
"Capital. I see I havo a foeman
worthy of my steel. Well, wo will leave
both questions unanswered for tho pres
to be continued.
If Napoleon 11ml Invaded England?
It is also pertinent to inquire what
would have happened had Napoleon
been successful in landing an army on
English shores. In the first place, his
mastery of the seas would have been
quickly ended by tho combined efforts
of tho English war vessels then afloat,
and he would havo been left without
base of supplies or communication. Ii
the second place he would have met j.
resistance from a prond, free, eulight
ened and desperate people whfch woulu
have paralyzed all his tactics and would
havo worn cut any army he could have
kept together. Did Napoleon fail to un
derstand this? Of course not. He bar
