"I've been reading a continued story In
one. of tho evening newsjiapers," Bald the
Manicure Lady, "and It Is a kind ot
queer layout, tho plot ot it and all. It
tells about a strong, manly young gent
about six feet tall who wins tho love,
of a fair young society girl by acting

"I remember reading something about
cavo men in my school books," said the
Head Barber. "If I remember right, they
"were tho first human beings and lived

bigger than tho men now, and more llkA
big gorillas.' They had hair all over
their big bodies and lived In caves. That
Is all I know about them, except that
when It coma to a rough houso fight
they must have been regular slashers."
"Dear me." exclaimed tho Manicure

tho hero was exactly a cavo man It said

to do that, If we can believe the papers

"It said in this story that all women

because I have often had the feeling

His' possessive attitude toward you not
only is distasteful to you, but will causo

He speaks when we meet but that Is all.
In every quarrel one Is tho mpro to

If he refuges to accept, forget him.. The

Hair that loses Its' color and lustre, or

Phllln Anson Is a boy ot 15 years, ot
fine education and good breeding, but an
orphan and miserably poor.
The story opens witn tne aeatn or nis
Rich relatives have deserted tho family
In their hour of need, and when his
mother's death comes J'hlllp Is in despair-
ire looks over his mother's letters
and fln-ls that he Is related to Sir Philip
Monana. A lew days later a territio
thunderstorm brews over London. At
the height of the storm a flash of light
ning scares a team attached to a coach
standing In front of a West i5nd man
sion. Philip, who has become a news
boy, rescues a girl from the carriage
Just before It turns over, A man with
tho girl trips over Philip ln his excite
ment. He cuffs thd boy and calls a po
liceman. The girl pleads for Philip and
he Is allowed ' to go after learning that
the man was Lord Vanstone. Philip' then
determines to commit suicide.
Just as he is about to hang himself a
meteor flashed by the window ana
crashed Into the flagstones In the yard.
The boy takes this as a sign from heaven
not to kill himself. He then goes to the
yard to look at the meteor. Philip picks
up several curious looking bits of the
meteor ana taxes mem to a aiamona
merchant named Isacsteein. who causes
his arrest. At the police station he gives
his name as Philip Morland. Isaacsteln
tells the Judge that the diamonds are
worth 00,000 CO.00O). Philip refuses to
answer questions and Is remanded for a
week. Lady Morland, dining In a res

In the police court he succeeds In con
vincing tne magistrate, Mr. ADingaon,
that ho came Into possession of tho Jew

back to mako an' arrangement with Isaac

diamonds to tho amount Ot 200,000 pounds
a year for a t -m of years, for a com
mission of 10 " cent, and to place at
once 5,000 pounua to the boy's credit ln
a bank. Fifty pounds is puld ln cash.
With this money Philip provides himself
with a beter suit ot clothes, and with
bags to take care of the Jewels, and re
turns to Johnson's mews: on the way he
meets with an adventure, which brings
him in contact with a poor woman. At
the old home ho gathers up tho diamonds.

The man glared dully at his captor.
With the apathy of his class he knew
when he was beaten, and became sub
missive In demeanor, Philip, holding
his candle aloft, marveled at his own
temerity in hitting this giant oxllke in
size and strength.
Mason wabbled his head and craned
his neck awkwardly.
"Oo gev me that crack on the nut?"
"The root dropped," was tho Jocular
"Sot It. I 'ad yor dahn, Bailor. I was
on yer aforo yo could use yer stick. Ye
was fairly bested until somebody alited

"Never mind, Jockey. It'll hurt you
to think Just now. Como on."
But tho cx-convlct became sensible of
tho unwonted light ln the deserted
houso, and slowly turned his head until
his glance rested on Philip. '
"Why," ho roared, with an Impreca

the station, Just to show there's no mal
ice," said the constable.
"The water was too strong for him,"
put ln Philip.
Tho ex-convict began to protest, but
he wasted words In swearing. Tho
"Sailor" grasped him by tho arm and
marched him down the yard,. saying over
"Pull that door to. I'll come back for
my coat In half an hour."
Philip followed him. but In a sea of
perplexity. He heard Mason's frantic ex
postulattons to the policeman what was
an extra stripe to tho loss of untold
wealth that youngster wns richer than
Rothschild, the papers said the small lot
he showed In the police court were worth
ISO. 000 more.
It was of no avail. Certainly the con
stablo had never heard such queer rea
sons for stopping an arrest, but Mason
was obviously dazed for the time, maun
dering about the story which everybody
talked of. Ho would'' change his tuni
when he learned to -whom he was In
debted for his capture.
Tho boy walked behind them me
chanically, shading tho candle with his
hand. He wus so absorbed with his
tumultuous thoughts that tho first Indi

his appcurauco was tho giggling of a girl
who saw him standing fn the arch ot the

What would happen If the friendly con
stable believed Jocky Mason's excited
statement? True, Philip had no reason
to fear the law. Rut with exposuro might
como other troubles. Would any one ad

Assuredly he was In an awkward predi
cament. Ot course, there was a chance
that tho policeman would continue to
laugh at the convict's folly, If he did
not, there would certainly bo complica
tions. Could he avoid them by any
means? Whero was there a safo hiding
place for his diamonds until the next
dsy? Would mother Insplro him again
as she had not failed to do during so
many strange events? Would her spirit
guldo his footsteps across this new quick
sand on whose verge he hesitated?
A few doors to the left was O'llricn's
shop. The old man crept into sight,
staggering under tho weight of a shut
tcr. Good gracious! Why had he not
thought of this ally sooner? Home pro
clous minutes wero wasted already.

"Walt Just the least bit, Mr. O'Brien

"Sure, boy, that's a small thing to ax.

With the speed ot a deer Philip dived
Into tho mews. Ho carried tho two
lesser bags, without extraordinary diffi
culty, and deposited them behind
O'Brien's counter. Tho third was almost
too much ior Mm, us the weight was
all In ono hand. But he got it there,
breathless with tho exertion.
He had to open tho fourth and tear out

tho packages taken from tho fifth It
was beyond his power to lift It, So he
dragged It bodily atong tho mews and

A passerby offered to help him.
"No, thanks," he managed tp say,

away his remaining breath. "I am only
