Tho thought -which proved such a fund,
of merriment was the idea that his man
tip stairs had proved himself just as hu
man as ordinary criminals, since he had
left behind him the very telltale mark
which he had boasted would not be
found after he had committed his crime.
Externally, however, there was no sign
to show that Mr. Barnes was in anyway
excited. He calmly asked at tho desk for
Mr. Mitchel, and sent up his card just
as any ordinary visitor might have done.
In a few minutes the hallboy returned
with tho curt message, "Come up."
Mr. Barnes was shown up one flight
of stairs into a suit of two rooms and a
bath overlooking Twenty-third street.
The room which ho passed in to from the
hall was fitted up like a bachelor's par
lor. Comfortable stnffed chairs and two
sofas, a folding reading chair, an up
right piano in mahogany case with
handsome piano lamp beside it, a carved
center table on which stood a reading
lamp, cigar case in bronze, photo al
bums, handsome pictures on tho walls
in gold frames, elegant vases on the
mantel, an onyx clock, a full sfzed figure
of a Moor carved in wood serving as a
card receiver in fact, everything about
the place was significant of wealth,
luxury and refinement. Could this be
the den of a murderer? It seemed not, nu
lesstbere might be some powerful hid
den motive, which would make a man
who was evidently a gentleman stoop to
such a crime. According to Mr. Barnes'
experience such a motive must involve
a woman. As yet there was no woman in
this case, save the corpse which ho had
just left. All this flashed through the
detective's mind as he noted his sur
roundings in a few swift glances. Then
he heard a voice from the next room
"Come in, Mr. Barnes. We must not
stand upon ceremony with one another. "
Mr. Barnes, in answer to the invita
tion, crossed into the adjoining room and
noticed at once that the sleeping apart
ment was as luxurious as tho parlor.
Mr. Mitchel was standing in front of a
mirror shaving himself, being robed in
a silk morning wrapper.
"Pardon this intrusion," began Mr.
Barnes. "But you told me I might call
at any time, and"
"No excuses necessary, except from
tne. But I must finish shaving, you
know. A man can't talk wiUi lather on
one side of his face. "
"Certainly not Don't hurry. lean
"Thank you 1 Take a seat. You will
find that armchair by tho bed comforta
ble. This is an odd hour to be making
one's toilet; but, the fact is, I was out
late last night."
"At the club, I suppose," said Mr.
Barnes, wishing to see if Mr. Mitchel
would lie to him. In this ho was disap
pointed, for the reply was :
"No; I went to the Casino. Lillian
Kussell, you know, has returned. I had
promised a friend to go, so we went."
"Are you not getting inquisitive?
No; not a gentleman, but a lady. In
fact, that is her picturo on that easel. "
Mr. Barnes looked and saw an oil
painting representing a inarvelously
beautiful head a brunette of strong
emotions and great will power, if her
portrait wero truthful. Here was a sig
nificant fact Mr. Mitchel said that he
had been to tho Casino with this wom
an. Wilson claimed that they had gone
to the house where the murdered wom
an lay. It would seom that Mr. Mitch
el's friend must live there, and thus
he had gained access tho night before.
Did he know that the other also lived
there and did he go into her apartment
after leaving his companion? As this
passed through Mr. Barnes' mind his
eyes wandered across the bed. Ho saw a
waistcoat, upon which he observed two
buttons similar to-the one which ho had
secreted in his pocket. Stealthily ho
reached his hand toward the bed, but
his fingers had scarcely touched the
waistcoat when Mr. Mitchel said with
out turning from his shaving :
"There is no money in that waistcoat,
"What do you mean to insinuate?"
said Mr. Barnes angrily, withdrawing
his hand quickly. Hr. Mitchel paused a
Stealthily ht readied his hand toward tho
moment before replyiag, deliberately
made one or two more sweeps with his
razor, then turned and faced the detect
ive. "I mettn, Mr. Barnes, that you forgot
that I was looking into a mirror."
"Yoar remark indicated that I meant
"Dii it? I iiotrj. Bat really yc
- n THE TOY KING,
should not adopt a tliigr7s steauny
methods if yon are so sensitive. When I
invite a gentleman into my private
room, I do not expect to have him fin
gering my clothing while my back is
turned. ' '
"Take care, Mr. Mitchol, yon are
speaking to a detective. If I did stretch
my hand toward your clothing, it was
with no wrong intent, and you know it. "
"Certainly I do, and what is more I
know just what yon were wishing to do.
You must not get angered so easily. I
should not have used tho words which I
did, but to tell yon the truth I was
"I don't understand."
"It hurt my feelings to have you treat
me just like an ordinary criminal. That
you should think I would let you come
in here and make whatever examina
tions you havo in your mind right bo
fore my very eyes wounded my pride. I
never should have turned my back upon
you except that I faced a mirror. I told
you I know what you wished to do. It
was to examino the buttons on my vest,
was it not?"
Mr. Barnes was staggered, but did
not show it. Calmly ho said:
"As you know, I overheard your con -
versation on the
having a sot of
train. You spoko of
five curious buttons
"Pardon me, I said six, not five."
Onco more Mr. Barnes had failed to trap
the man. He suggested five, hoping that
Mr. Mitchel might claim that to havo
been the original number, thus elimi
nating the lost one.
"Of course you did say six, now I re
member," he contiuned, "and I think
you will admit it was not unnatural cu
riosity which led me to wish to seo them,
that that well, that I might recog
nize them again."
"A very laudable intent. But, my
dear Mr. Barnes, I havo told . you that
you may call upon mo at any timo and
ask me any questions you please. Why
did yon not frankly ask me to show you
"I should have done so. I dosonow. "
"They aro in tho vest. You may ex
amine them if you desire it. "
Mr. .Barnes took up the vest, aud was
puzzled to find six buttons, three of Ju
liet and three of Borneo. Still he was
satisfied; for they were identical with
the one in his pocket. It occurred to him
that this man who was so careful in his
precautious might have lied as to the
number in tho set, and havo said six
when in reality tberowero seven. A few
questions about the buttons seemed op
portune. "These aro veiy beautiful, Mr. Mitch
el, and uuiquo too. I have nover heard
of cameo buttons before. I think you
said they were mado expressly for yon. "
Mr. Mitchel dropped into a cushioned
rocker before ho replied :
and they aro exquisite specimens of the
graver's art. Cameo buttons, however,
aro not so uncommon as you suppose,
though they aro more usually worn by
women, and, in fact, it was a woman's
idea to nave theso cut. I should not
"By Jove!" said Mr. Barnes, "the
Romeo buttons aro copies from your
likeness, and good portraits too."
"Ah! You havo noticed that, have
"Yes, and the Juliets are copies of
that picture." Mr. Barnes was getting
excited, for if these buttons were por
traits, anil the one in his pocket was
that of tho woman whose likeness stood
on ine wise!, it was evident that they
wftre connected. Mr. Mitchel eyed him
"Mr. Barnes, you are disturbed. What
"I am not distnrbed."
"You are, and it is the sight of those
buttons which has caused it.
Now tell i
me your reason
for coming hero this I
thought the time
come to strike a deciding blow.
"Mr. Mitchel, first answer one ques
tion, and think well before you reply.
How many buttons were made for this
"Seven," answered Mr. Mitchel, so
promptly that Mr. Barnes could only
"Seven? But you said six only a mo
"I know what I said. I never forget
any statement that I make, and all my
statements are accurate. I said that six
is the entire set. Now you ask mo what
was the original nnmber, and I reply
seven. Is that clear?"
"Then tho other button has been lost?"
"Not at all. I know where it is. "
"Then what do you mean by saying
that the set now is only six?"
"Excuse me, Mr. Barnes, if I decline
to answer that question. I liave replied
now to several sinco I asked you why
you came here this morning."
'I will tell you," said the detective,
playing his trump card, as ho thought
T ltnva Tuum vnw 41- nTn a a v-r-iT.
your crime was committed, and I have
found that seventh button!" If Mr.
Barnes expected Mr. Mitchel to recoil
with fear, or tremble, or do anything
that an ordinary criminal does when
brought face to face with evidence of his
guilt, he must have been disappointed.
But it jo safe to assume that by this
time so skillful a man as Mr. Barnes did
not expect so consummate an actor as
Mr. Mitchel to betray feeling. He did
show some interest, however, for he
arose from his chair, and walking ud to
Mr. BWneB he asked Eipaply:
THAT PLAGE IB "THE PAIR."
"Haveyon it with you' "iuay zsee icr
Mr. Barnes hesitated a moment, won
dering if he risked losing tho button by
handing it to him. Ho decided to give
it to him and did so.
Mr. Mitchel looked at it closely, as
though an expert, and after several mo
ments of silence ho tossed it carelessly
into the air, catching it as it came down,
and then said :
"This would make a pretty situation
in a play, Mr.Barnes. Follow me. De
tective discovers crime and finds curious
button. Goes straight to criminal and
boldly tells him of the fact. Criminal
admits that he has but six buttons out
of seven and asks to see the button
found. Detectivo foolishly hands it to
him. Then criminal smiles blandly and
says : 'Mr. Detectivo, now I have seven
buttons, and my set is complete again.
What are you going to do about it?' "
"And the detective would reply,"
said Mr. Barnes, falling into the humor,
of the situation, "Mr. Criminal, I will
just take that back by force:"
"Exactly. You catch the spirit of the
stage picture. Then fight between two
men, applause from tho gallery, and vic
tory for either partv, as the author has
! decided. That is the way it would be
done in a play. But in real life it is dif
ferent. I simply hand you back your
button thus, " handing button to Mr.
Barnes and bowing politoly. Then he
remarked: "Mr. Barnes, you are wel
coinotothat. It is not a part of my set!"
"Not a part of your set?" echoed the
"Not a part of my set. I am sorry to
disappoint you, but so it is. I will even
explain, for I sympathize with you. I
told you the set was originally seven.
So it was, but the seventh button has
tho head of Shakespeare on it. All seven
were given to me by my friend, but as
I could wear but six I returned to her
this odd Shakespeare button, which I
had made into a breastpin, and kept
the others, thus reducing the set of but
fons to six. The seventh is no longer a
button, you see."
"Bnt how do you coconut for the fact
that this button which I have is plainly
a portrait of your friend and a counter
part to thoso on ycur vest?"
"My dear Mr. Barnes, I don't account
for it. I don't have to, you know. That
sort of thing is your business."
"What if i shoald decide to arrest you
at once and ask a. jury to determine
whether your original set included this
button or not?"
"That would be inconvenient tome,
of course. But it is ono of thoso things
that we risk every day I mean arrest
by some blundering detective. Pardon
me, do not get angry again. I do not
allude to yourself. I am quite sure that
you are too shrewd to arrest me."
"And why so, pray?"
"Because I am surely not going to
rnn away, in the first place, and, second
ly you would gain nothing, sinco it
would be so easy for me to prove all that
I have told you, and, in your mind you
aro saying to yourself that I have not
lied to you. Beally I have not ' '
"I havo only one thing more to say to
you, Mr. Mitchel," said Mr. Barnes,
rising. "Will you show me that seventh
button, or breastpin?"
"That is asking a great deal, but I
will grant your request upon ono condi
tion. Think well before you make the
bargain. When I mado that wager, I
did not calculate the possibility of en
tangling in my scandal the name of tho
woman whom I love dearest on earth.
That is tho portrait of the woman who
wiU soon become my wife. As I havo
said, she has the other button and wears
it constantly. You will gain nothing by
seeing it, for it will simply corroborate
my word, which, I think, you believe
now. I will take you to her, and she
will tell you of these buttons, if you
promise me never to annoy her in anv
way in connection with this affair."
I will give you that promise cheer
fully. I havo no wish to annoy a lady. "
"That is for yon to decide. Meet me
in the lobby at noon precisely, and I
will take you to her house. And now
will you excuse me while I complete
THE SEVENTH BUTTON.
On the second floor of the apartment
house in East Thirtieth street lived Mrs.
Mortimer Remsen and her two daugh
ters, Emily and Dora.
Mrs Remsen's husband had been dead
more than ten years, but he had amassed
a handsome fortune, which left his fam
ily able to maintain the position in New
York society to which they were heirs
by birth and breeding. They lived in
the most commodious apartment in the
magnificent building in Thirtieth street
and wero surrounded by an elegant lux
ury which results from a combination
of wealth and refined taste. They enter
tained frequently, and Mrs. Remsen,
stiU a handsome woman, was always a
conspicuous figure at the most notable
social and charitable events of the
Emily, the eldest daughter, was a
woman of 26, who commanded rather
than attracted admiration. She was of
admirable proportions, easy and regal
carriage, with a fine Lead well poised
on magnificent shoulders. As to her
face well, I cannot describe it better
than did the eminent artist, Gaston de
Castilla, who was requested to paint her
"Madam," said he to her mother. "I

marvelous laces wmcn aery art. 'ijvery
feature is a departure from recognized
standards, and yet the result is nobility
and beauty of the highest type. Only
nature herself can produce such effects.
Through an imperfect countenance she
sheds the rays of an illumined soul, till
all faults are obliterated, forgotten. We
poor artists cannot hope to supply on
our cold canvas what so singular a face
must ha78 to make it beautiful. " Nev
ertheless he did paint the portrait, the
one which tho detective had seen in Mr.
Mitchel'srpom, and he had succeeded at
least in suggesting the marvelous ef
fects of character, revealing itself
through the features. Other painters had
failed, perhaps because they appreciated
less than he what they attompted.
This description also gives a hint of
the woman herself. A combination of
all the softer emotional elements, she
dominated self and others by a supreme
Will. She was rarely disobeyed by suitor
or by servant. That she had engaged
herself to marry Mr. Mitchel had sur
prised the entire circle within which she
moved, and yet perhaps tho secret of his
success lay in the simple fact that he
had had the courage to ask for her, and
to do so in a loving but masterful way
which plainly showed that he antici
pated no refusal or coy hesitancy. His
wooing had been of an impetuous whirl
wind kind, and he was affianced to her
within a month of their acquaintance.
It was this fact which had caused the.
most comment Mr. Mitchel moved in
good society, but he was n newcomer,
and now that he had captured the prize
of the matrimonial market all were
asking "Who is he?" a question which
none seemed able to answer. Ho was a
southerner, and that single fact had
shed about him a halo of attractive light
which had blinded the eyes of those who
feebly attempted to look deeper.
Mrs. Remsen had protested when
Emily announced her engagement, but
Emily had replied, "Mother, I have
given my word," and tho discussion
was ended. A few moments later she
had affectionately seated herself at her
mother's feet, and, after tenderly kiss
ing her, whispered: "I love him. He is
my king," and then buried her head in
her parent's lap. Pew women argue
against an appeal of that nature. Thus
Emily and Mr. Mitchel became engaged,
after which he came and went mnch as
though ho were tho master of tho house.
Why not, since he had become the mas
tar nf its mistress?
