"Tell 'cm about this habit they have. Every pretty, girl I

always coing over and cuddling something. And It's one
of tho sweetest things about a sweet girl. I like it all

tho girls not to deliberately light tho footlights, tuno tho

Jockey Mason's romance was now dls
slpatcd Into thin air. The contents ot the
portmanteau, the squalid appearance of
the house, tho date of the soldier's letter,
the bundle of pawn tickets, offered con

A subscription would be made among
the officers and men of the division and
they would give him a silver watch with

Tho inspector noted tho address given

his door, extinguished tho candle and lay
down on thq mattress, fully dressed with
his nawly bought rug for covering.
Ho was so utterly tired, so exhausted
physically and mentally by the storm
and stress of this eventful day that he
was sound asleep when the two men returned.
They saw him through the window.
"IIo's a fine lad," uald the inspector,
thoughtfully. "I wonder what he Is going
to make of himself. Wo might have asked
him who his friends wero, hut they are
not badly off, or he couldn't havo got
that bag and his new clothes. What on
earth caused Mason to connect him with
that diamond story?"
"It's hard to say," observed the con
'I will look round and have a chat with

The Inspector called at No. 3 John

but the door was locked and the Jilrd had
flown. Ho poke to Muson. after that
worthjr was remanded for a week, but
a night's painful seclusion had sealed tho
burglar's lips, Ho avowed, with fearful
emphasis, to "get even'- with the kid who
"hated" him, for tho policeman's evl
donee had revealed the truth concerning
tho arrest. But not another word would
Mason ray about tho diamonds, nnd for
a llttlo while tho Inspector placed his
overnight revelations In the category of
myths familiar to the police In their dally
dealings with criminals.
Philip awoke shortly before 7.

freshed In mind and body.
In the Mile End Road there are plenty
of early morning restaurants. At one ot
them he made a substantial meal, and, on
his return to the Mews, he lost not a
moment In carrying out k systematic
search through all parts of the house
and yard for nny traces of the meteor
which might have escaped his ken In the
Amid the earth and broken stones ot

ous reasons arid then dovoted five vigor
ous minutes with O'Brien's spade to the
task of filing up the deep hole. Itself,
By lowering the flagstones and break

small yard an appearance of chaos which
might certainly putsle people, but which
would afford no possible clue to the na

At best they might Imagine that the
dread evidence of come weird crime lay
In the broken' area. If so, they could

he was now 'guarding against a most
unlikely hypothesis. Tho probability was
that Johnson's Mews .would soon cease
to exist and becorrje almost as fabulous
as the Island of Atlantis.
Moreover, he had a project dimly out
lined in his mind which might becomo
deflnlto If all went well with him that
day. Then the ownership of No. 3 John

whoso bold beauty challenges the passing staro.
The second siiows demuro simplicity. Tho soft rolling brim of black
fur topped by a Tatn o' Bhahtor crown of whito velvet ncrollod in black is
girlish nnd sweet, and tho uigrotto that trims it straight up tho front adds
a contrasting note of abruptness to tho softness brought out by tho rest
of tho hat.
Tho third hat Is a little black plcturo hat whoso simple adaptation of
masculine sevority to femlnlno curves mnkoa it a fine foil for tho dreamy
typo of boauty. It Is simply an adaptation of tho "Bowler" hat done in
black velvet, girdled In groa grain ribbon and trimmed with a little curling
-plaque of paradlso.
Tho last hat Is for tho coquette who can wear tho daring llttlo trl-
