ay's session of the trial of himself

In'tho neat grey haired gentleman any
thing that bespoke graft. Ho allowed

CO years of age , to walk around the
store and inspect the stock. Shannon .
made his way to the bookkeeper's
desk , where ho Inquired of Miss Agnes
Smith the name of the manager of the
store. He was given this information
and blundered slightly when ho called
Nenow "Mr. Reid. " The latter was In

some lunch. "

Reid recalled such a name , though the
face was unfamiliar. But to accommodate
modato n customer Mr. Reid asked
how much Mr. Randall wanted.
"Fifty cents will do nicely , Mr ,
Reid , " said Randall , and ho soon had
the half dollar safely pocketed
Thanking Mr. Reid ho walked down
Norfolk avenue and entered u saloon
He was watched all the tlmo by the
manager of the shoo store , who had a
"hunch , " and the entering of the sn
loon strengthened the "hunch. " Shan
non soon reappeared and entered a
few business houses. Followed by Mr.
Reid , ho entered the Fair store , whore
ho was unnoticed for a time walking
around an unfrequented part of the
largo room. Mr. Ruld confided his
suspicions lo Morris Irvln , one of the
partners of the store , and together
they watched Shannon admiring a
, stock of shoos. Soon Shannon stooped
and was out of sight for u moment.
Then ho reappeared with his coat
bulging out at both Hides.
"lie's got your stuff all right , " whis
pered Reid to Irvln , and both business
men made for Shannon when ho walk
ed briskly for the front door. Hero
ho encountered Irvln and a pleasant
