woman In gray, whom ho hml noon louv

broken down. He fixed It. Hy a ruso sho
"lost" hlni Maitland, on reaching home,
surprised lady In gray, cracking the safo
containing his Kerns. She, apparently,
took him for a well-known crook, Panloi
Antsty. Half-hypnotized, Maitland oponed
his safo, took therefrom the Jewels, and
gave thorn to her, first forming n part
nership In crime. Tho ,renl Han Anlsty,
BOURllt by police of thd world, appeared
on the sumo mission. Multlaml oven-iuno
him. Q met the girl outsldo the hotisu
and they, sped on to Now Yoik In her au

to met him that day, Maitland received
a "Mr. Stialth."
CHAPTER V. Continued.
' Maitland accepted tho card unil ele
vated hla brows. "Oh!" ho said, put
ting It down, Lis manner becoming per
ceptibly loss cordial. "I say, O'Hagan."
"I phall bo busy for Will half an
hour satisfy you, Mr. Snalth?"
"You aro most kind," tho stranger
"In half an hour, O'Hagan, you may

"So," said Maitland, turning to face
tho man squarely, "you are from police
"As you bco." Mr. Snalth motioned
delicately toward his business card
as he called It.
"Well?" after a moment's pause.
"I am a detective, you understand."
"Perfectly," Maitland assented, un
moved. Ills caller secmod partly nmusod,
partly but very slightly embar
rassed. "I have been assigned to
covor tho affair of last night," ho
continued blandly. "I presumo you
have no objection to giving mo what
Information you may possess."
Tho man's amusement was mado
visible In a fugitive smile, half-bidden
by his small and neatly trimmed mus
tache. Mutely eloquent, ho turned
,lck tho lapol of his coat, exposing a
small shield: at which Mttftland
' glanced casually.
"Very well," he consentod, bored but
resigned. "Fire ahead, but make It as
brief as you can; I've an engagement
In" glancing at tho clock "an hour,
and must dress."
"I'll detain you noMongor than is es
sential. . . ; Of courso you under
stand hoWkoon we aro after this man
"What puzzles me," Multland Inter
rupted, "Is how you got wind, of tho
atfalr so.soon.''
" "Then you have ;iot hoard?" Mr.
'Snalth exhibited polite surprise.
' "i-nnrjusfbutdTbGd'."
"Anlsty escaped -ahortly. nftor you
left Maitland Manor." ""n:
"Ah! " ' ,7f--
Mr. Snalth knitted .bte bnftvs, evi
dently ht a loss whether to ascribe
Maltland's exclamation as duo tojstlr
.prise, regret, or relict Which pjdasdd
Maitland,' "who Jiad Jcon at yalns 'to
make his tone noncommittal. In point
of fact ho was nolther Burprjsed nor
regretful. ' . ,
"Thunder!" he continued, slowly. "I
forgot to 'phono Hlgglns."
"That Is why I, called. Your butler
did not know whero you could bo
found. You had loft In great haste,
promising to send constables; you
failed to do so; Hlgglns got no word.
In the courso of an hour or so his
charge began to choke or pretended
to. Hlgglns became alarmed and re
moved tho gag. Anlsty lay quiet until
his face resumed its normal color and
then began to abuse Hlgglns' for a
thick-headed Idiot."
Mr. Snalth interrupted himself to
chucklo lightly. -,
"You noticoda resemblance?" he re
BLined. Maitland, too, was smiling. "Some
thing of tho sort.'
"It is really remarkable, If you will
permit me to say so." Snalth was
studying his host's faco intently, "Hlg
glns, poor fellow, had his faith shaken
to the foundations. This Anlsty must
bo a clevor actor as well as a mnstor
burglar. Having cursod Hlgglns root
and branch, ho got Jils second wind
and oxplalnod that ho was Mr. Malt
land! Conceive Hlgglns' position.
What could"he-'lo?i ' -
"What ho did, I gather."
"And Anlsty?"
"Once loosed, ho knocked Hlgglns
over with tho butt of a revolver,
jumped out of tho window and van
ished. By tho time tho butler got
his senses back, Anlsty, presumably,
. was miles away. . . . Mr. Malt
land!" said Snalth, sharply.
"Yes?" respondod Maitland, elevat
ing his brows, refusing to bo startled.
"Why," crisply, "didn't you send
tho constables from Groenflolds, nc-
, cording to your promlso?"
J Maitland Inughod unoaslly and looked
' down, visibly embarrassed, acting
with consummate address, pluylng tho
gamo for all ho was worth; and enjoy-
ins it hugely.
"Why . . I . . . Really,
Mr. Snalth, I must confess "
"A confession would aid us materi
ally," dryly. "Tho case Is perplexing.
You round up a burglnr Fought by the
police of two continents, and listlessly
permit his escape Why?"
"I would rather not bo pressed,"
paid Maitland, with evident candor;
"but, since you say it is imperative,
that you must know " Snalth in
clined his head alllrmatlvely. "Why
. . to tell tho truth, I wus a bit
under tho weather last night;. out with
a party of friends, you know. Daro
say Wo nil had a bit more than wo
could carry. The capture was purely
accidental; wo had other plans for
the night and well," laughing shortly,
"I didn't glvo the matter too much
thought, beyond believing that Hlgglns
would hold tho man tight."
"1 see. It Is unfortunate, but . . .
you motored bark to town."
It was not a question, but Maitland
so considered it.
"Wo did," ho admitted.
"And came here directly?"
"I did."
"Mr. Maitland, why not be frank
with mo? My solo object Is to capture
a notorious burglar. I have no desire

"So," Said Maitland, Turning to Race the Man Squarely, "You Are from
Police Headquarters?"
to meddle with your prlvato affairs,
but . . . You may trust In my dis
cretion. Who was tho young lady?"
"To conceal her Identity," said Malt
land, undisturbed, "is precisely why
1 havo been lying to you."
"You refuso us thut Information?"
"Absolutely. I havo no choice in
tho matter. You must seo that."
Snalth shook his head, baffled, In
finitely perturbed, to Mainland's hid
den delight. ... ' " I -

"You aro well known to him," ad
mitted Snnlth. "Hut that Is'aTgJdd 13

"From a police point ot view." ,
"From any point , of viow , said"

) "This is getting tiresome," Maitland
interrupted, curtly. "Is It posslblo
that you suspect mo of conniving ut
the theft of my own property?"
Snnlth's oyes woro keen upon him.
"Strangor things havo boon known.
And yet tho motive is lacking. You
aro not financially embarrassed so
fur as wo can determine, at least."
Maitland politely Interposed his fin
gers botweon his yawn and tho de
fective's Intent regard. "You havo
ten minutes more, I'm sorry to say,"
ho said, glancing nt the clock.
"And thoro Is another point, moro
significant yet."
"Yes." Snnlth bent forward, olbows
on knees, lint and cano swinging, eyes
Iniplticablo, hard, relentless. "Anlsty,"
he said, slowly, "left a tolerably com
plete) burglar's kit In your library."
"Well he's a burglar, Isn't he?"
"NH thnt kind." Snnlth shook his
"Hut hla departure was somewhat
hurried. I can concqlvo thnt ho might

"Hut It was not his." -
"Not Anlsty's?"
"Anlsty does not depend on such
atitlquntod method, Mr. Maitland;
save that In extreme Instances, with

"Hut," Maitland cast about at ran

"He's no such fool. Unless ho hns
gono mad, ho worked alone. I prosume
you dlscovored no accomplice?"
"I? The devil, no!"
Snalth smiled mysteriously, then fell
thoughtful, pondering.
"You are an enigma," ho said, at
length. "I can not understand why
yotr refuse us all Information, when
I consider that the Jewels were
"Are mine," Maitland corrected.
"No longer."
"I beg your pardon; I have them."
Snalth shook his head, smiling in
credulously. Maitland Hushed with
nnnoyanco and resentment, then on
Impulso rose and strode Into tho nil
Joining bedroom, returning with a
small canvns bag.
"You shall see for yourself," he said,
depositing tho bag on tho desk nnd
fumbling with drawstring. "If you will
bo kind enough to step over bete "
Mr. Snalth, still unconvinced, hesi
tated, then assented, halting a brief
distance from Mnltland nnd toying ab
stractedly with his cano while tho
young man plucked at tho drawstring.
"Deuced tight knot, this," com
mented Maltlaud, annoyed.
"No'ninttr. Don5t troiible' ploa,s).
I'm quite satisfied, bollovo me."
"Oh, you aro!"
Maitland turned; and in tho act of
turning, tho loaded head of tho cano
landed with crushing force upon his

Ho swung on his heol nnd entered
tho hnllway, pausing at tho door long
enough to shoot tho bolt; thon passed
hastily through tho other chnmbors,
searching, to Judge by his manner.
In tho end a closed door attracted
him; ho Jerked it open, with an ex
clamntlon of relief. It gnvo upon n
largo bare room, used by Mnltlnml as
a trunk closet. Here were stout leath
er straps and cords In amplo measure.
"Mr. Snalth" selected one from them
quickly but with caro, choosing tho
In two moro minutes, Maltlnnd,
Trussed, gagged, still unoonsolous, nnd
breathing heavily, occupied a divan
In his smoking-room, while his assail
ant, in the bedroom, ears keen to
catch tho least sound from without,
was rapidly and cheerfully arraying
himself In the Maitland gray-striped
llannels and accessories aen to tho
gray socks which hud been specified.
"Tho less chances one takes, tho
better," soliloquized "Mr. Snalth."
Ho stood erect, in another man's
shoes, squaring back his shoulders,
discarding the disguising stoop, and
confronted tits Imago In a pier-glass.
"flood enough Maitland," ho com
mented, with u little satisfied nod to
his counterfeit presentment. "Hut
wo'll mnko It bettor still."
A single quick Jerk denuded his up
per lip; he stowed the niHstncho care
fully awny In his brenst pocket. Tho
moistened coiner of n towel mnko
quick work of tho crow's feet nbout his
eyes, and, simultaneously, robbed hint
of a dozen apparent years. A pair of
yellow chamois gloves, plnced conven
iently on u dressing table, covered
hands thut no art could make resemble
Maltland's. And It was Daniel Mait
land who studied himself In tho plor
glutw. Contemted, tho criminal returned to
tho umoklng-rtioni. A single glance
nssured him that his victim was still
dead to the world, lie sat down at tho
desk, drew off the gloves, and opened
tho bag; a peep within which wna
enough. With a deep and slow Intake
of breath he knotted tho drawstring
nnd dropped the bag Into his pocket.
A Jeweled cigarette case of unique de
sign shared the same fato.
Quick eyos loanilng tho desk ob
served the telegram form upon which
Maitland had written Crossy's nairo
and address Momentarily perplexed,
tho thief pondered this; then, with a
laughing oath, seized tho pen anil
scribbled, with no attempt to Imltato
tho other's handwriting, a message:
"Regret unavoidable detention, hot
ter of explanation follows."
To this Maltland's name was signed.
"That ought to e-lear him neatly, if I
understand the emergency."
Tho thief rose, folding the telegraph
blank, and leturncd to tho bedroom,
taking up his hat nnd the murderous
cano as he went. Hero ho gathered to
gether all the articles of clothing that
ho had discarded, conveying tho mass
to tho trunkroom, whero nn empty and
unlocked kit-bag received it nil.
"That, I think, Is nbout all."
Ho was very methodical, this crim
inal, this Anlsty. Nothing essential
escaped him. Ho rejoiced in tho ml
nut Ino of detail that went to cover up
his tracks so thoroughly that his cam
paigns woro as rouiarkable for tho
clues ho did leave with malicious de
sign, as for thnso that ho didn't.
One final thing hold his attention:
A bowl of hammered brass, Inverted
beneath a ponderous book, upon tho
desk. Why'.' In a twinkling ho had
removed both and was studying tho
Impression of a woman's hand In tho
dust, and nodding over It.
"That girl," deduced Anlsty. "Nov
ice, poor little fool ! or sho wouldn't
have wasted llmo searching hero for
tho Jewels. Good looker, 'though
from what little ho" with a glance at
Maitland "gnvo mo a chance to seo
of her. Scents to have snnrcd him, nil
r'ght, if she did miss the haul. . . ,
I Little Idiot) What right has a woman
in this business, anyway? .won,,
hero's ones thing thut will never land
me In the pen."
As, with nlco care, ho replaced both
bowl and book, a door slammed b6!ow
Ktalnt took him to the hall In nn in
stant. Maltland's Panama was hang-
lng on the hntrack, Maltland's collec
tion of walking sticks bristled in a
stand beneath it. Anlsty appropriated
the former and chose ono of tho latter.
"Fair exchango,1' ho considered, with n
harsh laugh. "After nil, he loses
nothing . . . but tho jewels."
Ho was out aue .ati tho foot of tho
stairs Just as O'Hagan reached tho
ground floor from the basement.
"Ah, O'Hagan!" Tho assumption of
Maltland's Ironic drawl was Impec
cable. O'Hagan no moro questioned It
than ho epiestloned his own sanity.
"Hero, send this wire nt onco, pleaso;
and," pressing a coin Into tho ready
palm, "keep tho change. I was hur
ried and didn't bother to call you. And,
I say, O'Hagan!" from tho outer door:
"If that fellow Snnlth evor calls
again, I'm not at homo."
"Very good, sor."
Anlsty permitted himself tho slight
est of Biniles, pausing on tho stoop to
draw on tho chamois glovos. As ho
did so IiIb eyo' flickered disinterested
ly over the personality of a man stand
ing on tho opposl(6 walk, uiul staring
at tho apartment house. Ho was a
short man, of stoutlsh habit, sloppily
dressed, with a derby pulled clown
over ope eye, cigar butt protruding nr
togantly fiom beneath a heavy black
mustache, booty cheeks, and thick
soled boots dully polished,

Subject: Temperance Involved In
the Law of l.ove."
Introduction. Who wrote the Kpls
tie to the Romans? It Is ono of the
undoubted letters of Haul, "the most
'Pauline' of all the writings which bear
Haul's name, fundamental among our
materials for a 1'aullno theology."
Hunting's Hlble Dictionary.
The All-Incluslvo Debt of l,ove Vs.
8-10. How does Paul rank the duty of
loving? Ho places It before all other
duties. Ho hns been urging (Rom,
HI: 7) the Bcrupulous payment of all
debts, and repeats the command:
"Owe no man any thing." Of courso
this does not forbid borrowing, but re
quires the payment of all debts when
they are duo. There Is, however, ono
debt so vast that It never can be pnld
In full: "to love one another." l.ovo
sums up the whole law and perfect
love would make a perfect num. It Is
obvious thnt if wo love our neighbor,
wo shall not kill him, or steal from
him, or benr false witness against
him, or covet his good things, or work
III to our neighbor In nnV other way.
The Temperance Application.- It
would be bard to name nn "111 to a
neighbor" that Is not fostered b' In
temperance. "We suffer moro year by
year from Intemperance than from
war, pestilence and famine combined
Jboso three great scourges of tho hu
man family." Gladstone.
A Warning from Approaching Death.
Vb. 11, 11!. With what argument did
Paul urgo tho law of love? That tho
end ot the world was at hand, the close
of tho present order of things, "And
thnt" thero is good, reuson for you to
do, namely, keep the law of love, bo
cause you know the critical "time" In
which you llvo. This Is a referenco to
the Parousln, or socond coming of
ChrlBt, which Pnul and the other apos
tles seem to havo hello veil to bo close
at hand.
What conclusion did Pnul draw from
tho nearness of Christ's coming? Thnt
it was "high time to nwnku out of
sleep: for their salvation was nearer
than when they bellovo" (aorist tense,
came to believe, became Christians.)
"Tho words aro as an alarm, or
morning watchboll, awakening a
Christian to his day's work." Arch
bishop, 1-olghton.
