Such a family had long tenanted 94
Rrlarsweet place. The owner, Mark
S. Flanders, was one of the few old- J
style lawyers who are fortunate to
have husbanded their acquired compe
tence before the lean years of age and
OsleriJiatlon have descended upon thorn.
One of the first settlers in the town,
the Flanders residence had at one time
been the admiration and the eye
wldener of the country over, but of
late, and especially since the death of
Flanders' wife, both the old mansion
and the old lawyer had been reckoned
among the hopeless by tho ultra-smart
Flanders had always borne a repu
tation for the highest integrity and
greatest personal honor. He had even
managed to keep his record while
serving his city two terms as Mayor.
That the bricks and stone of the sup
posedly well-bred Flanders mansion
should have opened up surreptitious
entrances to the plebeian boarding
bouse next door seemed incredible, es
Declally In connection with a murder.
Liberal usages or telephones ana di
rectories elicited the information that
Flanders had sailed quietly -and unher
alded for Europe a week previously.
Qorln got Dunwlddy, Flanders' partner,
on the wire and asked him about It.
Dunwlddy was out of sorts at the call.
The clock showed 4:30 a. m. and Dun
wlddy was In the most delectable dl
vision of his early morning snooze.
Yes, yes," he shouted over the tele
phone, "this is Thomas Dunwlddy,
Flanders' partner, who are you and

he is an Englishman who has lived in
the tropics. . Now, my dear sir, I beg of
you to keep the Flanders name out of
any affiliation with this unfortunate
affair, it you possibly can. You under
stana me, or course. Yes, I suppose
you may see the leases, but you mus
be careful what moves you make, in
ternatlonal complications, you know,
and all that. Good-by."
Oorln whistled as he hung up th
receiver, and repealed over and over
again the name "Ilamley Hackleye
"Humph," he suld, and dropped an
other nkkel.ln the telephone slot, as
be gave the call, to direct his. office to
cable London and find out if they coul
discover anything about Mr. Hackleye.
A very careful external examination
of the premises at 94 Uriarswcet Place
was made. There was a small back
yard, grass laid, and neat and dignl
ned, with a few tulips a -bloom alon
the path that led to the primly latticed
back gate. The shades all over the
bouse were clustdy drawn and there
was no Indication of Johnny nor any
axy etber s'.tn of life any place at alt
aboiit. A quart of milk nnd a 'small
bottle of en .nil had been lcTt on the
back steps, and a morning paper blown
by the wind rotated between tho porch
and the back walk.
"I'xtry. 1'xliy," shrieked a newsboy
on the sidewalk. There was the scrape

"Whew!" whistled Qorln, "this looks
pretty bad! Nice men, I must say."
Frankel and Sothcrn went down the
hall from Betty Lancey's room after
the clerk and his companion, who was
so excitedly seeking the papers that
had blown out of the window and a
couple of bell boys.
"We'll go right down through the
bar, it's tho quickest," they overheard
tho clerk say as the couple passed to
await the elevator. The two newspa
per men ran down to the next floor,
caught the car at tho second landing
and rodo to the first floor with the
clerk and his plainly excited compan
ion. The bar was closed and while one
clerk procured the keys for entrance
Frankel covertly watched the man,
and Sothern nonchalantly strolled over
to the clerk behind tho desk.
"Who Is that man?" he queried. "I
don't mean the little Jew, but the dark,
handsome fellow there? He has such
a beautiful wife, looks Ilka a woman I
knew In Paris once."
"So?" asked the clerk. "They have
been here at frequent Intervals this
last year or two. Don't know much
about them, except that his name is
Harcourt Harold Hareourt and they
always register from India. They've
got cash to burn."
What's the matter with him now?"
questioned Sothern. The clerk laugh
ed. "Oh, I don't know," he answered.
'IIo camo bustling down here awhile
ago shouting about some documents

lit on the fire escape opposite. Ho
wanted somebody to go up and help

"Ho was crazy, too." supplemented
one of tho bell boys. "Old lady In E22

but her hubby made her come to the

tlckledest when the papers were gone.
They's going-down In the court now, to

Frankel by now had Joined the
lerk at the door of the bar and was
njoylng thut functionary's attempts
to make the key yield In the lock.
'What's on?" he asked, carelessly, "a
riot or a raid?"
Nothing at all, sir, private busi
ness, private business only," interrupt
ed Harcourt, with the air of giving
Frankel his conge.
Frankel, however, refused to accept
uch a gratuity and followed the two
men, and tne several Den boys, one
with a pocket light and the others
with various boxes of matches through
the darkened barroom. The glasses
and mirrors and decanters gleamed
dully in the half-light and the tiled
floors were slippery with recent scrub
bing. The door that opened upon the
court was heavily chained, barred and
bolted, but it swung wide at last and
larcourt clutching the pocket light
from the grasp of its bearer flared it
Into every corner and crevlee of the
clean cemented rectangle.
"Nothing here, sir, nothing here,
commented the clerk. "What was the
nature of the papers, if you please?"
Harcourt s face was livid. He rum
pled his thick hair nervously with his
long white fingers, oblivious of all his
surroundings. At the third repetition
of the interrogation he roused from
his stupor and remarked:
"A picture of my wife, a very valu
able hand-mado print, one I prize for
Its associations as much as for its in
trlnslo worth, and some extremely im
portant passports. I would not have
lost them for halt a million dollars."
The bell boys poked around In a de
sultory fashion into imaginary crev
Ices that did not exist. Tho clerk led
the way back to the office and Har
court absently met the claims of the
buttons upon his pockets.
"Excuse me, Mr. Harcourt," said
boy at his elbow, "but I guess you'd
better hurry back upstairs to your
wife. She Just Bent a call down thnt

"Think I'll go up and see If T.eU
needs any help," suggested Sothern
"you'd better stay down here, Franke
and see what you can skirmish up.
Sothern made his way back to th
"E" floor cautiously. He went to ltet
ty's room and knocked on the door. I
flew quietly ajar and ho wus greeted
with a chorus of:
"What'd you tit, Hetty?"
"'Tlsn't Hetty." grinned Sothern
"Isn't she here?"
"No, haven't seen anything of he

"She must have found a vein," add

"Most likely a vein found her," add

"I'm going to llnd out," retorted Tir

woman's decidedly nasal oiee.
"Are you sure you wasn't dreaming?"
earne the words, "what could have be

"Indeed I know," said Larry, "and

"Don't know. Nothing more doing

"Here, too," chimed In a chorus. But
arry Morris was silent. He left the
boys at the corner, then sought out
and dug from their slumbers an official
or two whom he knew well, and swore
out a warrant against the Harcourts,
charging thorn with abduction of Betty

THE ESKIMO'S PIPE.

The pipes used by the Eskimos are
quite different from those of any other
North American race, and in the shape
of the bowl more resemble the opium
pipes used by the Chinese than any
thing else. The old pipes were very

they would hold, for In former days
tobacco was extremely scarce and in
Its use was moot carefully husbanded.
There was therefore a wide flaring
margin to the pipe to catch any grains
of tobacco that might be spilled In

which would hold a pinch of tobacco
half as large as an ordinary pea and
a rather wide hole passing down
through the bane of the bowl which
fitted into the pipe stem. The bowl
of the pipe was ef Ivory, stone, brass
The pipe stem was carved and had a
mouthpiece. It Is said that the small
hole running down through the base
of the bowl and into the pipe stem was
usually plugged with caribou hair to
save any grains of tobacco that might
otherwise have passed down through
this aperture and so be lost. The
smoking of such a pipe would not last
long, and we may presume that a very
few draws would exhaust it. Th
smoke was of course taken Into the

Doctori Versus Lawyers.

trying to confuse medical experts in
the witness box in murder trials, and
often they get paid back in their owb
coin. A case is recalled where thi
lawyer, after exercising all his tan
gling tactics without effect, looked
quizzically at the doctor who was teg
tlfylng and said:
"You must adu lt that doctors some
times make mistakes, won't you?"
"Oh, yes, the same as lawyers," wai
he cool reply.
"And doctors' mistakes are buried
six feet under ground," was the law
yer's triumphant reply.
"Yes," he replied, "and the lawyer

WHEN STANLEY QUAILED.
Dinner Flatteries Too Mark for tho

"Before I met Henry M. Stanley,"
says William H. Rldeing in McClure's,
"I had talked with men who had been

and all they told me about him was
more or less appalling.
"He was not inhuman, but In desper

Senator Frye and Senator Hale
don't love each other much, but they
get along largely because Senator
Frye prefers the quiet of a harbor to
the thrill of the open sea. Mr. Frye,
as president pro tern, of the Senate,
shoulders hla duties solemnly. He
does everything solemnly. Most of the
Senate time he looks solemnly scared
as though he were afraid that some
one might jump out and "boo." If
any one ever does that It will be un
kind, says a writer In Success Maga
zine In an article entitled "Fighting
Faces of Our Senators."
Some of those who knew Senator
Frye in his youth assert that he looked
scared and solemn even then. Others
maintain that the expression has been
acquired by long association with Sen
ator Hale and the constant fear that
the latter may bite him. But anyhow,
Senator Frye Is a very learned per
son, and has been LL-D.'d by a lot of
colleges; also he has held office, with
appropriate solemnity, since 1861.

Missouri. Though told that Whlttler
had a headache he forced his way in

that he adored all Whittier's works,
which he knew almost by heart. lis
asked Whlttler to write hU name sev

foolscap, so that he could cut out and
distribute the autographs among his

the poet could do to keep the enthus

my health was all

over without being

was tired and lan

around I could not do my work. The

me so much that I kept on using them
