A DETECTIVE'S STORY.
"Ilo Isn't hort' ' " "Ho'saorois the

was a poln' upon
on ktcs on the lee , to take the stage
coach at Eut Hard Up. You'll have
to go anil see him there , for ho ain't
tt'CJinlr. " homo again. Yon must bo
pretty qalck , for ho was a goln' to start
not far from this time , "
This wiii evidently a pretty well
contldorcd scheme of Mr. Tnpllng's ,
and Indicated that ho must have some
thing somewhere worth taking a good
deal of pains for. This could not well
bo anything except monry , which ac
cordingly 1 presumed ho had about
his person , to the full amount of the
receipts from his swindling sales ,
very likely 5,000. On
skates , I meditated ; that is not
a bad Ides ; It's glorious skating all
the way np , and for such a sllppei/
trick so sllppory a moans Is very just
ifiable I determined that I would
take a hasty supper , procure o pair of
skates aud a stout stick , and start off
alone after our sly friend John ; for
skating being a specialty of mine ,
I made no donbt that If ho should
have sot ont 1 could overhaul him on
the river. So , meditating and de
ciding , I reached the hotel , and find
ing the proprietor , I addretsod him In
"Landlord , I want you to do four
things a little faster than they were
ever done before. First , got mo my
supper. Second , send ont and buy
me a pair of good skates ; and also ,
third , a stout straight cane. Faurth ,
furnish mo a pocket fluk of good
"It shall bo done in fifteen minutes ,
Ho disappeared with spaed , and U
was done I mean the supper and
before my short and rapid meal was
complete the required remaining arti
cles were at hand ; and paying my
bill , putting tho.skates and tlaskln my
pocket , fortlfjlng myself with com
forter , overcoat , gloves and mittens ,
and grasping my stickI was off. It
was uow between D and G o'clock , and
bitter cold , with a sharp wind from
the northeast. Settling my head
well down In my coat-oollar , as If I
were trying to cover my oars with my
shoulders , with hands In pockets , and
cap drawn over my eyes , I turned
northward , bent loir , headed dligon-
ally across the river to round the next
point above , and struck out across the
glimmering , silent ice , with . long ,
steady , rapid , swooping ttrokes.
My skates , fortunately , though
quite now , were net too sharp ,
and , as the Ice was extremely hard ,
they ran over It with very little of the
scoring ont which is BO apt to diminish
the spoocd. aud for twenty minutes I
sped steadily on at a moderate pace ,
until I should got a little easy In my
work. There had been so much skat
ing that the mauy tracks along my
ronto afforded mo no Indication as to
my predecessor. From Muddloton to
Hardnp Is twenty-five miles by the
course of the river , bat I might do-
crone this distance by a miln or two
by taking advantage of my knowl
edge of the river and "cuttlug off cor
ners. " But Tup ) i OR donbtleEB know
the same , aud my object , If attained
at nil , nmut bo BO by desperate ,
straightforward racing. Away I wont ,
sweeping by the wide , bare meadows ,
pnt the gorges In the bills , whirling
round point after point , stretching in
s'rjl ' [ > ht lines from one to the next ,
while the redup.loatod ringing utrokci
of my skates made a monotonous tnuoli
for mo , and I onld hear the little
fragments , cut out by uu ooaieiona !
heavy foot thruU , blown oraukllng
backward by the vrlud.
Now , I conld BOO upon the river ,
half way up the reach , the figura of o
man skating nlougut a good pace. Il
mnat bo Tnpllug ! Now , at last , I pnt
forth the very utmost cf my strength ;
and , going , at a tremondoaa pace , wu ;
rapidly overhauling the dishonest
bankrupt , I was almost within
speaking distance , when ho must have
hoard the ringing of my skate Irons ;
for suddenly looking over his shouldoi
ho saw me , and instantly redoubled
his speed , which convinced mo that he
iras my man. Away wo flaw foi
nearly a mile In perfect silence , ex <
cept for the scoring and ringing skate
strokes ; but I steadily closed up , un
til aa wo turned and swept northward
again , round the bond In the bow ol
which the prison stands , I spoke.
"Tapllng , hold bard ! I want to
speak to you ! " Bat he slackened nol
I continued to gain , and waa jus !
considering whether I would knock
him down with my stick or lay handi
on him when , taming his head , he
suddenly dlsoharued ono pistol shot
aud then another , bat , firing over hit
shoulder , missed me. I was even al
ready lifting my stlok and would have
returned his compliment unless h <
had "niagod me with a further use ol
his revolver , when at once the graj

The tremendous speed of my forme

"Agree to settle that bill in full ,
