The 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 -stand where many people usually are packed in standing room. The price of resered grand stand seats will be o0 and 75 cents. The sections nearest the wire will be sold for 73 cents. (wrar ffKZlull viU- Fall of Manila Celebrated.

Washington County Contrary to the prophesies of the pessimistically inclined, as expressed some weeks ago, small grain has turned out un usually well in this section. Thresh ing crews report that oats are aver aging thirty-five bushels to the acre, and wheat close to twenty bushels. The quality of both is the best in years, the wheat testing from sixty one to sixty-three pounds to the bushel, and oats also testing high. Fullerton Postmaster Dead. Nance Countj J. W.

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 positively. 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 disappeared. "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 back?" 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, sir." CHAPTER V. 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 rMAN LOWFPTFN ffica hy- MAEQf ROBERTA AUTHOR f & CIRCUEAR' $TAWW&CJ$& ULUSlJKAilUrO by ITl.O CCPrRKifir by OOSfVff - MERRILL COTIPATy "Did Anyone Suspsct You taken notes of the dead man's be longings, his name, address, clothing and the general circumstances of the crime. Now with his little notebook open before him, he prepared to en joy the minor sensation of the rob bery. "And now for the second victim." 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 amusement." 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 bad." 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 colored. "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. CHAPTER VI. 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 case.
