through the green Inlzo doois. There were
pcxcral of the directors present at the time ,
nnd , as you may Imagine , they were pretty

you go along a llttln passage , out of which
a room opens on the left , and In front ot

"You know , too , that In the main room

the diamond tables run around the two slJcs

"The gem was then handed oxer to Mr
Marsden's care pending thu departure of the
diamond post to Vrxebnrg on the following
Mondav this was a Tuesday. The bicretary
saw It locked up In the big safe by Mr.
Marsden who , as usual , was accompanied
bj another ofllclal , a younger man than him-
si-lf whom you can call Henry Lomas , a
connection of his , and also one of the most
tiustc ! members of the staff.
'Every day , nnd sometimes two or ihrce
limes a day , either the secrelary or ono 01
other of the directors came tin and had a
look at the big stone , either for their own
satlbfaetlon or to show It to some of their
more Intimate friends I ought , perhaps to
haxo told you before thai the whole diamond

mit that I couldn't glvo the remotett gueaa

That's exactly what I said to myself
after I had been wonylng day and night
for inoro than a week over It , " said the
Inspector. "And then , " ho went on , sud
denly getting up from his seat and beginning
10 walk up nnd down thu room with quick ,

lint I wax engaged upon vanished from
my mind , leaving it for Iho moment a per
fect blank. Then , like a lightning Hash out
at ji blink cloud , ( hero tame a momentary
ray ot ll-jlit which showed mo the clew
to the mystery. That was the Idea. These , "
ho said , etopplng In front of tU > mantle-
piece and putting bU finger aa Ui glya
case which tovcred the two relics which
had started the story , "thete were the ma-
tcrlallratlon ot It. "
"And yet , my dear hifpector , " I ventured
to Interrupt , "you will perhaps pardon mo
for nay Ing that your ray of light leaven mo as
much In the dark ns ever. "
"Hut your darkness shall be made day
nil In good course , " he slid , with n smile .
I could see that he had an eye for dramatic
effect , and so I thought It was better to lot
him tell the story uninterrupted and In his
own way , so I slmplv assured him ot my
ever-Increasing Interest , and waited for him
to go on He took a couple of turns up nnd
down the room In silence , as though he were
considering In what form he should spring
the solution ot the mystery upon me. Then
he stopped , and said , abruptly
"I didn't tell you that the next morning
that IB to say , Sunday Mr. Marsden went
out on horseback ( shooting , In the xcldl , up
toward that range of hills which lies over
yonder to the northwestward , between here
nnd Darkly West. I can see by your face
that yeti are already asking yourself xxhnt
that has gnl to do with spiriting n million
or so's worth of crystallized carbon out of
the safe at Do Doers' . Well , n little pa-
llonco and you shall sec.
"I'arly that samu Sunday morning I xxas
walking down Stockdnlo street , In front of
the Ho lleers' ofllces , smoking a cigar nnd ,
of course , worrying my brains about the dia
mond. I took n long draw at my xvcod and
quite Involuntarily put my head back and
blow It up Into the air there , just llko thnt
and the cloud drifted diagonally across the
street dead In the direction of the bills on
which Mr. I'hlllp Marsden would Just then
be hunting buck. At the same Instant the
rex elation which had scattered my thoughts
about the other little case that I mentioned
just now canio back to me. I saw , with my
mind's eve. of course well , noxv , vxhat do
you think 1 saxv ? "
"If It wouldn't spoil an Incomparable de-
tectlxe , " I said , somewhat Irrelevantly , "I
should say that you xxould make an excel
lent story teller Noxcr mind whit 1 think.
I'm In the plastic condition just now. r am
receiving Impressions , not making Ihem.
Noxxxvhat did you see ? "
"I saw the gicat Do Doers' diamond siy
from 10,000 to lfi 010 worth of concentrated
capital Iloallng from Iho upper story of the
Do Doers' consolidated mines , rising over the
housetops , and drifting down the vxlnd to
Mr Philip Ma'den's hunting ground "
To say that I stared tn the silence of
blank Amazement nt the Inspector , vxho mode
Hits astounding assertion with a dramatic
pestnro and Intlecllon which nalurally can
not be reproduced In print , would be lo uller
the merest commonplace. Ho seemed to
taku my stare for ono it Incredulity rather
than xxnnder fet he sa jl almost sharply.
"Ah , I see you ore beginning to think thai
I am lalklng tlctlon now ; but never mind , we
will tec about thai later on. You have fol
low id mo I have no doubt closely enough
to understand that , having exhausted all the
rcsonicos of my ex-perle'icc and such native
xsIt ns the fates have given mo , and having
made the most minute analysis of the cir
cumstances of the case I had come to the
fixed conclusion that the great diamond had
not been carried out of the room on the per
son of a human being nor had It been
dropped or thrown from the windows to the
street yet It was equally undeniable thnt
It had got out of the safe and out of the
room "
"And therefore It flew out , I suppose , " I
could not help intcriuptlng , nor , I nm afraid ,
could I qiiltp ax old a Htiggesllon of incre
dulity In my tone.
"Yes my dear sir , " replied the Inspector ,
with an emphasis which * he increased by
slapping the four fingers of his rlghl band
on Iho palm of his left. "Yes It Hew out.
It Hew some seventeen or eighteen miles
before it returned to the carlh in which
It was born , If we may accept the theory
of the terrostilal origin of diamonds So
fai as the event proved , I vxas absolutely
coirect , vxlid and all as you may nnlurally
Ihlnk mv hypolhesls lo have been.
"But , " he continued , slopping in his xxalk
and making an eloquent geslure of apology ,
"being only human , I almost Instantly de
viated from truth Into error. In fact , I
freely confess to you thai Ihero and Ihcn
I made what I consider to bo the greatesl
and meal falal mistake of my career.
"Absolutely certain as I xvas that the diamond
mend had been conveyed through f-e air
to the Darkly hills , and thai Mr. 'hlllp
Marnden's shooting expedition had been un
dertaken with the objecl of recovering it ,
I hail all Iho approaches to the toxvn
watched till he came back. He catno In
by the old Transxaal road about an hour
after dark. I had him arrested , took him
into the house of one of my men xxho hap
pened to Hvu out thai way. searched him , as
I might say , from the roots of his hair to the
soles of his feet and found nothing.
"Ot course he was Indignant , and ot course
I looked a very considerable fool. In fact ,
nothing would pacify him but that I should
meet him the next morning In Ihc board
room al De Decns , and , In Ihe presence of
the eecietnry nnd nt least three directors ,
apologize to him for my unfounded sus
picions and the -outrage that they had led
mo to make upon him I xxas , of course ,
as von might say , bclwccn Ihe devil and
the deep sea. I had to do It , and I did it ;
but my convictions and my suspicions re
mained exactly xxhat they were before.
'Then there began a very strange , and ,

although you may think Ihc term curious , a
voiy pathetic waiting game between us lie
km w that In splto of his temporary victory
I hail really solved the mystery , and was on
the right track. I knew thai Iho groal
diamond xxas oul yonder somewheru among
the hills or on the veld and I knew , too ,
that he was only waiting for my xigtlancu to
n lax to go out and get it.
"Day after day , xxcok after week and
month aftci month thu gnme went on In
b'lenco ' Wo met nln.ost oxery day His
01 edit had been completely restored at DC
liters Lomas , his connection , and , as I
firmly bollexcl , his confederate , had been ,
through his Influence , sent on a mission to
England and when ho went I confess thai I
thought the game was up that Marsden
had somehoxv managed to recover the
diamond and that Loman had taken It be
yond our riadi.
"Still I watched and waited , and as tlmo
xverit on 1 saw that my fears were ground
less and that the gem was Htlll on the veld
or In the hills Ho kept up bravely for
weeks , but at last the strain began to tell
upon him. Picture to yourself the pitiable
position of a man of good family In the old
country , of cxpenuixe tasteb and very con
siderable ambition , llxlng here In Klmberluy
on a salary of sonic 12 n week , worth about
5 in nngland and knowing that within a
fexxmlli'K of him , In a spot thai he alone
knew of , there lay a concrete fortune of say
1,500,000 , which was his for tbu picking up
If ho only daicd to go and take It , and yet
ho dared not do RO
"Yes , It Is a pitiless trade this ot our. ' ,
and professional tbief-cairbers can't afford
to have much to da xxltu mercy , and yet I
tell you that as I watched that man day after
day with tbo fexer growing holler In his
blood and the unbearable anxiety tearing ever
harder and harder at his nerves , I pitied him
ves , I pitied him to much that I ex en
found myself growing Impatient for the end
to come. Fancy tlui , a detective , a thief-
catcher , getting Impatient to tec his victim
out of his misery )
"Well , I had to wait clx months that Is
to say , I had to wait until C o'clock this
morning for the end. Soon after 4 one of
my men came and knocked mo up ; ho brought
a note into rny bedroom and I read It In bed.
It xvoi from I'hlllp Marsden , asking me to go
and BCO him at once and alone , I went , as
you may be sure , wltb aa HtUe delay at p -
slblc. I found him In his Killing room , The
llRhtft. were burning. He was fully dressed
and had evidently been up alt night.
"Kxcn I , who had seen the despair that
comes ot crime In most ot Its worst forms ,
was shocked nt the look of him. Still ho
greeted mo politely and with perfect com
posure. He affected not to tee the hand tint
I held out to him , but asked me quite kindly
to nit down and have a chnt with him I Mt

standing In front of me. coxerlng rne with a
brace of revolvers. My life , of course , vxas
absolutely at hl mercy , nnd whatever 1
might have thought ot myself or the situa

to nit still and wait lor developments ,
"Ho began verjriqnlctly to tell me why ho
had tent for mo. Hit said 'I wanted to see

MUit lioxv did ho get the diamond out
of the safe ? The secretary savx It locked up
that evening ! ' I exclaimed , my curiosity
gelling the better of my prudence
" 'It was not locked up In the Etifo at all
that night , ' ho answered , smiling with a
sort of ghastly satisfaction , 'Lamas and I ,
as you knoxv , to < k the-tray of diamonds tc
the safe nnd , ns fjr ns the secretary coulrl

and I told him to clean the scales as 1 wauled
to test them. While he was doing so he
slipped the diamond behind the box , and
there It lay betxxcen the box and the corner
of the wall until It was wanted.
" 'Wu all left the room as usual , and , as
jon know , we were searched. When Lomas
went on night duty there xxas the diamond
ready for Its balloon voyage Ho filled the
balloon Just so lhal It lifted the diamond and
no more Txxo of the xxlndows were open
on account of the heat. Ho watched his GO
portunlly and committed It to the air nbout
txxo hours b tore dawn You knoxx what a
sudden fall there Is In the temperature hero
just before daybreak. I calculated upon
thai to contracl Ihe volume ot Ihe gas btif-
ficlenlly lo deslioy the balance and bring
the balloon to the ground and I knew that
If Lomas had obeyed my instructions. It vxould
fall either ou the veld or on this side ot Ihe

make a long slory shorl , I started out be
fore daybreak thai morning , as you know ,
lo look for buck. When I got outside the
camp I took compass bearings and rode
straight down th wind toward the hills Dy
good luck or good calculation , or both , I
must have followed the course of the bal

I left the camp I sa the little red speck
ahead of me up amongithe stones nn the hill

were really after bubk. In cas' anybody was
watching me I worked round to the red

like to leaxc It there , and pul It In my pocket-
book. You remember that when you searchoJ
me you didn't opemmy pocketboolr , as , of
course. It was perfectly flat and tbo diamond
couldn't possibly fchave been In it. That's
how you mls ed your clew , though I don't
suppose It would have-been much use to you
ns you'd already guessed It. However , there
It Is at youi service now. '

Solving the Problem of Telegraphing fron
Moving Trains ,
Itrnio > IIIKhe Hun ire rn of X llnj -
UNCN of the Tclritlioiu-
flitiliiR | KrclKlit TrnlHu
on Trollc ) Linen , i
Messrs. W. A. ami C. D. Koyise of In
dlanapolls have Invented a system o
telegraphing from moving trains which , I
Is claimed , surpasses anything ot the klni
jet produced The system Is extremely slm
pie , and when explained Ui always surpils- > !
old operators to think that It has been M
long In coming out. The Inventors use wha
might bo termed a third tall placed In tin
middle of the track. This rail , ot coin so
may bo simply a soft Iron strip laid In i
wooden stringer , llnch train U ciinlppci
with a relay of high resistance , not less tint
1,200 ohms , and an ordinary telegraph ko ;
nnd sounder , with n local battery to opernti
the sounder , The relay lias one side con
nccted to thu main line , or third rail , urn
the other to the track rails , which form tin
return circuit. The keyIs connected In tin
same manner so that when the key Is closci
the lelay Is short ell culled. There Is a bat
tery at eich end of the line. In both bat
lories like mc-tals are connected to the tall
road track nnd other metals to the mult
line. With this connection the train rcla ;
will stand closed when ull keys arc open
but when any key Is closed all train relay :
mo short circuited and open. It Is slmpli
enough tu change the contact points on tin
local side of the relay so the sounder wll
close when the relay opens , and there voi
have the whole thng. | Stations may be eon
ncottd in this way or the iclays may bi
put In the main circuit as Is now done It
the ordinary byetcm , but all keys must hi
connected the sumo as tra 1n keys.
The system can ba best dcscrlbsd by say
Ing that It makes every train a. moving tele
giaph station , constantly In connection will
every other train and with every olllce 01
the line Its advantages will be readily ap
predated by any railroad man and most ol
the traveling public Collisions would hi
Impossible , and , besides this , there wouli
be no vexatious delays caused by sonu
freight train which has orders against tlr
time of a passenger train , getting laid ui
between stations with a hot box or othci
minor defect to some car. The delay woult
be Immediately reported and the ordeit
could be changed.

"The operation of this system ,
A Hoys'1 , "Is very simple In fact It Is M
simple that the wonder Is that It has nevei
before been put In operation. There 1m i
been matij attempts to do what we now
do but ab far as we know nil efforts ti
sohe the problem have been unsuccessful
except as to demonstrating that such thlnm
can be done In aevenl ways , all of which
howevei. have heretofore proved too cumbersome
bersomo or too expensive and uncertain. We
have discairled nil the plans that have beer
tried and 1m e directed our efforts tow an
a simple adaptation of the common .Mnise
sys em of telegraphy and from what various
railroad men hnvc said of our plan we be
llxo wo have solved the question In a way
that ib so simple that any one can manag :
It and at the same time bo Inexpensive as
to be ptactleal In its use
"Hctetofore the effort has been moie geiv
orally in the line of sustaining communica
tion with moving trains by means of Induc
tion In which plans there are not direct con
nections between the trains and the mall :
line , but the current In the main line IH maiU
to causa an Induced current In the train
wires on account of theli close proximity
Mr. Edison holds patents on one system o !
this kind , which is successful so fai an op
eration In favorable weather In concerned
but It IB so easily affected by atmospheiU
changes that It Ib not expected by him II
will ever come Into general use It Is com
plicated , too , and for that reason requires
an expert to manage it. "
A practical trial of the Invention Ib tc
be made on too Monon railroad.
Elliott Woods , superintendent of the na
tional capltol. Is a student of photography ,
and hjs recently been making some experi
ments with the X-rays , nnd produced some
results of great Interest to scientific and
medical men. He docs not profess to be
an expert In the laws of light or the u es
and abuses of the X-ray , but nevertheless
ho Ins advanced the science of both very

One of his most recent cxpeilmcnts was
directed to the now well known fact that
human flesh suffers In a gieat many cas s

most serious cas's of the III effects of the
ray on the flesh was reported not long ago
to the United States surgeon general Be
fore that , however , there were seveial spc
clllc cases in which the rays had piodnced
festering fles'i sloughing , falling out of
halt , so-es , Inflammation , etc.
Mr. Woods has d'scoveied ' a process by
whlcb this effect of the X-ray on be elim

no proof at all that this quality tot 111 ef

true , he Raid , the effect would probablv bo

cases of exposure He admits , however , that
the ray , In combination with ccita i. iilusl ni
conditions of the pattent or subject ui tht
have produced the 111 effects desu lb"rl
Mr. Woods has discovered that ihos'1 III
jffrcts xx 111 not follow exposure to the X ray
