Sherlock Holmes may have drawn vig

knotty problems of lxmdon crime; Steve
Malonoy may have laid aside his stoey

late his brain convolutions.
Hut he sat right in his office Monday
and, without even llchtlns a cigarette,
told h nurse of the Itoselle sanitarium
just exactly where she could find Mrs.
Sleeper, a patient who had run away
from the sanitarium.
Where do you suppose I could find
that svoman?" said tho nurse, who knew
Mr. Drircoll well hnd who was In trouble
because she was sent out to find the es
caped patient and hadn't the slightest
Idea where she might locate her.
"Well, how should I know where to
find the old lady?" queried Drlacoll some
"Well. I thousht maybe you could sug
gest something," replied the nurse, "for
you cannot know less about It than 1 do."
"Well, If that is the case I'll try to help
you. Is she opt to bo a little flighty at
times? Well, then, the first place I
should look would be In the city library,
for if bunch of queer people hang out
there In the afternoons. I found i man
there not long ago that was plowing
through ponderous volumes trying to
trace his ancestry to George Washing
ton." Jast Left the Library.
At the library the nurse was told the
woman had Just been there asking
whether .William Allen White was
smooth shaven or whether he still wore
his mustache. Hut she had just stepped
out when she had learned theso Impor
tant facts about White.
Tho nurse came back to Drltcoll.
"We'll try the dentist," he advised, when
he found that the woman had been hav
ing some dental work done. She tried the
dentist, but the woman had not even
been there. Dack to Drlscoll'a office went
the nurse, somewhat discouraged, .
Then tho mighty Driscoll began his
rat detective work. "What kind of
clothes does she wearT" he asked. "Aro
they in good condition or are they rag
ged. Has she a good hat o'rNa poor one?
Are her shot and stockings good? Is
she warmly dressed for this weather?"
He was told that the woman was
dressed well enough except that her shoes
The mighty Drlacoll looked up sharply,
"Go to the Brandcis shoe department at
oace," he said. "Lose no time," The
little aiifse hurried.

The mighty Drtscoll smiled and took the
elevator to the street, where he bought
himself a stogy.

The successor to Mr. Oulld in the posi

likely to make a recommendation to the

When the steamship Patricia came Into

of alleged water damage. An Immenst
shipment of linens, stored in a portion
of the vessel not designed for carrying
merchandise, became slightly wet In

they wet sold at a 40 per cent reduction.
It Is a matter ot local Interest that an

The volume of tourist travel this winter

and follow the popular routes In search
of milder climates. Winter cruising Is
no longer an expensive luxury as In (he
past, hut hn.i been brought within the
reach of people of moderate means and
leisure. A number of attractive pleasure
cruises have been arranged, varying In
length from fifteen days to three months,
which will carry thetraveler quickly
and luxuriously from bleak northern win
ter weather to tropical waters.
The most popular cruise this winter will
doubttesi be to the West Indies and the
Panama canal. Now that the canal Is

thousands of travelers who have delayed
visiting the Isthmus wilt make the cruise.
This season tourists will have the op
portunity to cruise to the West Indies
and the Isthmus of Panama on larger
and more luxurious steamers than ever
before. A series of sir cruises from New
Tork to the West Indies and the Panama
canal, varying In length from fifteen to
twenty-nine days, la announced by the
Hamburg-American line. Two of these
cruises will be made by the steamship
Amcrlka, one of the most famous of the
transatlantic steamers, which Is equipped
with lllU-Carlton restaurant, gymnasium
and electric elevators. The fact that the
Amerlka as' well as the famous cruising
steamer Victoria Louise will be used In
this cruising service In southern waters
shows the wonderful advance In this

Though before the flight of the cen
turies Its galleyed fleet of carnage and
cqnquest have yielded their sway, the
storied lands of the Mediterranean can
never lose their wealth of Interest for the
people of alt time. The balmy climate,
the multitude of wonder on every aiBe,
the relics ot Jhe ages and the undying
monument ot a great past, all speak elo

The winter cruises of the different
