Scores of workmen were stirring the

the mill took in pin luefal, weighed, broke

Mr. Meeker had just driven into the
mill yard and fastened his horse, when
the new manager approached him.
"What is it, Cummin?"
"I want to speak to you."
"Come into the office."
He led the way into his private room,
and awaited the manager's euriiuiuni a

"'"Yes, but I'll wait until this gentleniiu
speaks to you."
This gentleman proved to be Mr. Gripp.
Mr. Orion's manner was always defer
ential to his superiors and his equals.
To hia inferiors ' be was overbearing,
tart hrniuiiie. and often brutal. Now he
was as smooth as oiL He stepped for
ward, rubbing his hands, as the manager
turned to Mavbernr. who looked curi
ously at Gripp.
"Are you prepared to take that lot of
old rails I spoke of, Mr. Meeker t
I am. not sure.
"That's a fine lot of tenants you have
down there in the bottom," said one of
Mr Meeker's iiartnprs suddenly. The
partner was sitting in a comer readin
"Why?" demanded Meeker, turning
"When they have nothing else to do,
they murder each other. Here's half a
column in the paper about it. A very
mysterious affair it seems to be."
May berry's eyes were fixed on Gripp's
face. Gripp was as unconcerned appar
ently as though the news related wholly
to the affairs of another planet.
"They are not my tenants," said Meek
er. "That wan never my property. It
belonged to one of my brothers years
ago. Who was murdered and where
was the crime committed?"
Again Mayberry's gaze was riveted ou
"In a bouse crowded with a rough lot
of people old offenders, soma of them.
Brick stands alone three-story. A
woman either suicided ar was murdered

"Well," said Mr. Meeker, with a sigh
of relief, "I'm glad It's only inference.
I never can read or heir of the uiurder

could lay my hands on her murderer and
help to hang bim on the spot."
"A very natural feeliaf qnite nat

"YeB I guess you may send the lut

And then the mill owner turned to the

IIi far was very pale; bis voice sound
ed strange to Mayberry and the mill own
er. Mayberry wondered at the extra
ordinary change that had come over the
new manager. If it had been manifested
by Gripp, he could have understood it.
Hut why the mill manager should betray
agitation was strange indeed.

in?. Gripp's neck was revealed far be
low the line his coat collar covered. There
were five distinct marks on hia neck, such
marks as human nails might make.
As Mayberry looked at these red marks
he shuddered. He felt that he 1 was T with
in arm's reach of a murderer.
"Thauks," said Gripp, in his oily man
ner, as Mayberry handed him the check.
Then something in Mayberry's manner
caused him to start; he looked around
quickly, then down at his clothes, and, re
gaining his self-possession instantly, bow
ed and went away.
.Mayberry immediately picked up a pa
per and hurriedly scanned the account of
the mystery that was set down by all
the morning newspapers as a murder.
Due paragraph in particular attracted his
attention. It read thus:
"There are many circumstances which
warrant the opinion that a deliberate
murder has been committed. The dead
woman's clothes were torn; the seam at
the shoulders looks as though i had been
subjected to extraordinary strain before
it parted. A curious fact is pointed out
by oue of the officers. The nails of her
right hand are discolored; they have a
duli. r.sldish tinge. If this bo blood, an
analysis will determine the fact speedily,
Unfortunately for the ends of justice, it
seems some person unknown swept the
tioor, and thus it is difficult to establish
the correctness of the theory that the
dead woman in the struggle with her
murderer caught his wrist or neck. If
s-he had turn his clothes or torn from
him anything that would have been the
means of identifying him, the sweeping
has removed the evidence, tin the other
baud, two or three well-known physicians
are positive the marks on the woman's
neck were not made by the rope found
around her neck. In tine, it is said that
there is reason to believe the woman tad
a visitor the mysterious caller referred
to in the outset and that she was killed
by him, and afterward placed in such a
position as to convey the impression that
she committed suicide."
When Mayberry read this, be -was con
vinced that he had just parted with the
murderer. The figures before his cjes
were meaningless for a time. He was
thinking of Gripp; of the shadow on the
curtain: of the peculiar actions of Mr.
Irion before the crime was committed;
of the lenirth of time Mr. Gripp remained
in the tenement house.
What could he do? He was surmising.
If he spoke of the matter, he might sub
ject miiiselt to mucu questioning, Riri
inconvenience, and Gnpp s actions migttt
be explained in a manner that woulil ren
der Mayberry ridiculous.
But murder had been done. If his sus
picious were well founded, it was hia duty
to strive to bring the murderer to justice
Especially if be was the cold-blooded vil
lain and rascal Mayberry had reason to
think Gripp was.
There was another reason. This man
held something knew something that
made Atherton fear him. So Gripp was
a thief, and the shocking impression that
he was a deliberate murderer made May
berry's blood course swiftly through his
veins. He longed to see him brought to
Mayberry's course was determined on
the instant. He would call on bis friend
the young lawyer immediately. Five min
utes later he was on his way to his
friend's oflice. He was so fortunata us
to find his friend in. He was closeted
with him but a few minutes. W hen l.e
returned to his work it was with a re
lieved mind. .Matters were in train for
getting at the truth.
The lawyer would put a detective on
the affair who could be relied upon a
man of rare intelligence, not a profes
sional detective. It was a case where
this man would demonstrate his tact tnd
analytic power. Mayberry would meet
his friend in the evening, and learu what
had been developed in the meantime. At
the appointed hour Mayberry repaired to
bis friend's office to meet a young man,
neatly dressed, with a very guiet, wlf
contaifted manner. It would be difficult
to determine his place In society or his
calling. He did not seem to notice May
berry, yet in one swift giance that young
man was photographed upon his memory.
"Mr. Mayberry, Mr. Dunn."
The young man bowed. The lawyer sat
back in his chair; Mayberry turned quick
ly to Dunn.
"I have learned something."
"It was not easy, I suppose."
"It was not difficult. It required lit
tle time. I talked to the neighbors, call

There was a long pause. The lawyer
und Mayberry felt that tbe next ques
tion was all important that the answer
would govern their future course.

The detective nodded gravely as ick-

HANDSOME NEW SILKS
Nickersou was the first to break the
silence that ensued. He arose and paced
"You said there was a woman in the
bouse, and a shoemaker across the way,
who saw and even described the wan?"'
"To whom does their description
"Unmistakably to Atherton. Almost
any one who knows him would recognize
him from their description.
"Whateer is done," said Mayberry
with resolution in his face and tone, "I
want to have no share, no hand, in bring
ing Atherton into trouble. I can't be

like him to strike a woman, either."
"I have told you all I know," said
Dunn, ia a respectful but firm tone. "I

with my judgment.

blunder. It may cost a man more than
life is worth; it may rob Atherton of his

life." said Dunn. "There hasn't been any
hanging here for some time. The first
bad case will serve for an example."
Mayberry shuddered. He imagined he
beheld Irene Atberton's face looking at
him. Me beheld the reproachful look in
her sad eyes. Then he recovered his self
possession and decision.
"Admitting it was a man's deed. Ad
mining that Atherton was in th house
that evening, it does not follow that he
committed the murder."
"Not necessarily," said Dunn. "It is a
