sale of tirkets to the grand stand will
ease when the full seating capacity
has been so'd. This will prevent
crowding an 1 jostling in the grand
stand and the space in front of the

packed in standing room. The price
of resered grand stand seats will be

CHAPTER IV Continued.
Some one was on the floor at our
feet, face down, head peering under
the berth. Now he got up without
apology, revealing the man who had
summoned the conductor. He was
dusty, alert, cheerful, and he dragged
up with him the dead man's suit-case.
The sight of it brought back to me at
once my own predicament.
"I don't know whether there's any
connection or not. conductor," I said,
but I am a victim, too, in less degree;
I've been robbed of everything I pos
sess, except a red and yellow bath
robe. I happened to be wearing the
bath-robe, which was probably the
reason the thief overlooked it"
There was a fresh murmur in the
crowd. Somebody laughed nervously.
The conductor was irritated.
"I can't bother with that now," he
snarled. "The railroad company is
responsible for transportation, not for
clothes, jewelry and morals. If peo
ple want to be stabbed and robbed in
the company's cars, it's their affair.
Why didn't you sleep in your clothes?
I do."
I took an angry step forward. Then
somebody touched my arm., and I un
clenched my fist. I could understand
the conductor's position, and beside,
in the law. I had been guilty myself
of contributory negligence.
"I'm not trying to make you re
sponsible," I protested, as amiably as
I could, "and I believe the clothes the
thief left are as good as my own. They
are certainly newer. But my valise
contained valuable papers, and It is to
your interest as well as mine to find
the man who stole iL"
"Why, of course," the doctor said
shrewdly. "Find the man who skipped
out with this gentleman's clothes, and
you've probably got the murderer."
"I went to bed In lower nine," I
said, my mind full again of my lost
papers, "and I wakened in number
seven. I was up in the night prowl
ing around, as I was unable to sleep,
and I must have gone back to the
wrong berth. Anyhow, until the por
ter wakened me this morning I knew
nothing of my mistake. In the inter
val the thief murderer, too, perhaps
must have come back, discovered
my error, and taken advantage of it
to further his escape."
The inquisitive man looked at me
from between narrowed eyelids, ferret-like.
"Did anyone on the train suspect
you of having valuable papers?" he
inquired. The crowd was listening in
tently. "No one," I answered promptly and
The doctor was investigating the
murdered man's effects. The pockets
of his trousers contained the usual
miscellany of keys and small change,
while in his hip pocket was found a
small pearl-handled revolver of the
type women usually keep around. A
gold watch with a Masonic charm had
slid down between the mattress and
the window, while a showy diamond
stud was still fastened in the bosom
of his shirt Taken as a whole, the
personal belongings were those of a
man of some means, but without any
particular degree of breeding. The
doctor heaped them together.
"Either robbery was not the mo
tive," he reflected, "or the thief over
looked these things in his hurry."
The latter hypothesis seemed the
more tenable, when, after a thorough
search, we found no pocketbook and
less than a dollar in small change.
The suit-case gave no clew. It con
tained one empty leather-covered flask
arid a pint bottle, also empty, a change
of linen and some collars with the
laundry mark, S. H. In the leather
tag on the handle was a card with the
name Simon Harrington. Pittsburg.
The conductor sat down on my un
made berth, across, and made an en
vy or the name and address. Then,
on an old envelope, he wrote a few
words and gave it to the porter, who
"I guess that's all I can do," he
said. "I've had enough trouble this
trip to last for a year. They don't
need a conductor on these trains any
more; what they ought to have is a
sheriff and a posse."
The porter from the next car came
In and whispered to him. The con
ductor rose unhappily.
"Next car's caught the disease," he
grumbled. "Doctor, a woman back
there has got mumps or bubonic
plague, or something. Will you come
The strange porter stood aside.
"Lady about the middle of the car,"
he said, "in black, sir, with queer-looking
hair sort of copper color, I think,
The Woman in the Next Car.
With the departure of the conduc
tor and the doctor, the group around
lower ten broke up, to re-form in
smaller knots through the car. The
porter remained on guard. With
something of relief I sank into a seat.
I wanted to think, to try to remember
the details of the previous night. But
my inquisitive acquaintance had other
intentions. He came up and sat down
beside me. Like the conductor, ke had

and the general circumstances of the

he began cheerfully. "What is your
name and address, please?"
I eyed him with suspicion.
"I have lost everything but my name;
and address," I parried. "What do you
want them for? Publication?"
"Oh, no; dear, no!" he said, shocked
at my misapprehension. "Merely for
my own enlightenment. I like to
gather data of this kind and draw my
own conclusions. Most interesting and
engrossing. Once or twice I have
forestalled the results of police inves
tigation but entirely for my own
I nodded tolerantly. Most of us
have hobbies; I knew a man once who
carried his handkerchief up his sleeve
and had a mania for old colored prints
cut out of Godey's Lady Book.
"I use that inductive method orig
inated by Poe and followed since with
such success by Conan Doyle. Have
you ever read Gaboriau? Ah, you have
missed a treat, indeed. And now, to
get down to business, what Is the
name of our escaped thief and prob
able murderer?"
"How on earth do I know?" I de
manded impatiently. "He didn't write
it in blood anywhere, did he?"
The little man looked hurt and dis
appointed, i
"Do you mean to say." he asked,
"that the pockets of those clothes are
entirely empty?"
The pockets! In the excitement I
had forgotten entirely the sealskin
grip which the porter now sat at my
feet, and I had not investigated the
pockets at all. With the inquisitive
man's pencil taking note of every
thing that I found, 1 emptied them on
the opposite seat.
Upper left-hand waist-coat, two lead
pencils and a fountain pen; lower
right waistcoat, matchbox and a small
stamp book; right-hand pocket coat,
pair of gray suede gloves, new, size
seven and a half; left-hand pocket,
gun-metal cigarette case studded with
pearls, half-full of Egyptian cigarettes.
The trousers pockets contained a gold
penknife, a small amount of money in
bills and change, and a handkerchief
with the initial "S" on it.
Further search through the coat dis
covered a card-case with cards bear
ing the name Henry Pinckney Sulli
van, and a ieather flask with gold
mountings, filled with what seemed to
be very fair whisky, and mono
grammed H. P. S.
"His name evidently is Henry
Pinckney Sullivan." said the cheerful
follower of Poe, as he wrote it down.
"Address as yet unknown. Blonde,
probably. Have you noticed that it is
almost always the blonde men who af
fect a very light gray, with a touch
of red in the scarf? Fact, I assure you.
I kept a record once of the summer
attire of men. and 90 per cent, fol
lowed my rule. Dark men like you
affect navy blue, or brown.
In spite of myself I was amused at
the man's shrewdness.
"Yes; the suit he took was dark
a blue." I said.
He rubbed his hands and smiled at
me delightedly.
"Then you wore black shoes, not
tan." he said, with a glance at the ag
gressive yellow ones I wore.
"Right again." I acknowledged.
"Black low shoes and black embroid
ered hose. If you keep on you'll have
a motive for the crime, and the mur
derer's present place of hiding. And
if you come back to the smoker with
me, I'll give you an opportunity to
judge if he knew good whisky from
I put the articles from the pockets
back again and got up. "I wonder if
there is a diner on?" I said. "I need
something sustaining after all this."
I was conscious then of some one
at my elbow. I turned to see the
young woman whose face was so
rvTMTWr ATyi nyu t . "Bjfc otKJPB
of Having Valuable Papers?"
vaguely familiar. In the very act of
speaking she drew back suddenly and
"Oh I beg your pardon," she said
hurriedly, "I thought you were
some one else." She was looking in a
puzzled fashion at my coat. I felt
all the cringing guilt of a man who
has accidentally picked up the wrong
umbrella; my borrowed caller sat
tight on my neck.
"I'm sorry." I said idiotically. "I'm
sorry, but I'm not." I have learned
since that she has bright brown hair,
with a loose wave in it that drops
over her ears, and dark blue eyes
with black lashes and but what does
it matter? One enjoys a picture as a
whole; not as the sum of its parts.
She saw the flask then, and her er
rand came back to her. "One of the
ladies at the end of the car has
fainted." she explained. . "I thought
perhaps a stimulant "
I picked up the flask at once and
followed my guide down the aisle. Two
or three women were working over J
the woman who had fainted. They
had opened her collar and taken out
her hair pins, whatever good that
might do. The stout woman was vig
orously rubbing her wrists, with
the idea, no doubt, of working up her
pulse! The unconscious woman was
the one for whom I had secured lower
11 at the station.
I poured a little liquor in a bun
gling masculine fashion between her
lips as she leaned back, with closed
eyes. She chocked, coughed and ral
lied somewhat.
"Poor thing." said the stout lady.
"As she lies back that way I almost
think it was my mother; she used to
faint so much."
"It would make anybody faint."
chimed in another. "Murder and rob
bery in one night and on one car. I'm
thankful I always wear my rings in a
bag around my neck even if they do
get under me and keep me awake."
The girl in blue was looking at us
with wide, startled eyes. I saw her
pale a little, saw the quick, apprehen
sive glance which she threw at her
traveling companion, the small woman
I bad noticed before. There was an
exchange almost a clash of glances.
The small woman frowned. That was
ail. I turned my attention again to
my patient.
She had revived somewhat, and now
she asked to have the window opened.
The train had stopped again and the
car was oppressively hot. People
around were looking at their watches
and grumbling over the delay. The
doctor bustled in with a remark about
its being his busy day. The amateur
detective and the porter together
mounted guard over lower ten. Out
side the heat rose in shimmering
waves from the tracks; the very wood
of the car was hot to touch. A Cam
berwell Beauty darted through the
open door and made its way. in er
ratic plunges, great wings waving,
down the sunny aisle. All around lay
the peace of harvested fields, the quiet
of the country.
The Girl in Blue.
I was growing more and more ir-
Art in Commerce.
There must be a considerable touch
of the artist in the modern grocer.
Groceries at first blush would seem
to be colorless, unromantic things,, but
any such impression is a wrong one.
Very little imagination Is sufficient to
reveal the real romance there is in
groceries, and as to the artistic capa
bilities they possess in capable bands
there is ocular demonstration in our
many big, fine grocery stores that
they are considerable. The grocer of
to-day recognises the great value of
attractiveness. A man may strongly
desire something, but when it is put
ritable. The thought of what the
loss of the notes meant was fast
crowding the murder to tha back of
my mind. The forced inaction was
intolerable. The porter bad reported
no bag answering the description of
mine on the train, but I was disposed
to make my own investigation. I mads
a tour of the cars, scrutinizing every
variety of hand luggage, ranging from
luxurious English bags with gold
mountings to the wicker nondescript
of the day coach at the rear. I was
nor alone in my quest, for the girl in
blue was just ahead of me. Car by
car she preceded me through the train,
unconscious that I was behind her,
looking at each passenger as she
passed. I fancied the proceeding was
distasteful, but that she had determin
ed on a course and was carrying It
through. Wc reached the end of the
train almost together empty-handed,
both of us.
The girl went out to the platform.
When she saw me she moved aside,
and I stepped out beside her. Behind
us the track curved sharply; the early
sunshine threw the train, in long black
shadow, over the hot earth. Forward
somewhere they were hammering.
The girl said nothing, but her profile
was strained and anxious.
"I if you have lost anything." I
began. "I wish you would let me try to
help. Not that my own success is any
thing to boast of."
She hardly glanced at me. It was
not flattering.
"I have not been robbed, if that la
what you mean," she replied quietly.
"I am perplexed. That is all."
There was nothing to say to that.
I lifted my hat the other fellow's
liat and turned to go back to my car.
Two or three members of the train
crew, including the conductor, were
standing in the shadow talking. And
at that moment, from a farmhouse
near came the swift clang of the
breakfast bell, calling In the hands
from barn and pasture. I turned back
to the girl.
"We may be here for an hour." I
said, "and there is no buffet car on.
If I remember my youth, that bell
means bam and eggs and country but
ter and coffee. If you care to run
the risk"
"I am not hungry," she said, "but
perhaps a cup of coffee dear me, I
believe I am hungry." she finished.
"Only" She glanced back of her.
"I can bring your companion," I sug
gested, without enthusiasm. But the
young woman shook her head.
"She is not hungry." she objected,
"and she is very well, I know she
wouldn't come. Do you suppose we
could make it if we run?"
"I haven't any idea," I said cheer
fully. "Any old train would be better
than this one, if it does leave us be
hind." "Yes. Any train would be better
than this one," she repeated gravely.
I found myself watching her changing
expression. I had spoken two dozen
words to her and already I felt that
I knew the lights and shades In her
voice I, who had always known how
a woman rode to hounds, and who
never could have told the color of
her hair.
I stepped down on the ties and
turned to assist her, and together we
walked back to where the conductor
and the porter from our car were in
close conversation. Instinctively my
hand went to my cigarette pocket and
came out empty. She saw the ges
ture. "If you want to smoke, you may,"
she said. "I have a big cousin who
smokes all the time. He says I am
kippered.' "
I drew out the gun-metal cigarette
case and opened iL But this most
"Where Did You Get That?"
commonplace action had an extraor
dinary result: The girl beside me
stopped dead still and stood staring
at it with fascinated eyes.
"Is where did you get that?" she
demanded, with a catch in her voice;
her gaze still fixed on the cigarette
up in a way which attracts and
pleases his eye he more than wants
it; he finds he cannot do without it.
