Meanwhile that gentleman was holding
a conversation with Wilson.
"You say," said the detective, "vtiat
Mr. Mitchel gave you the slip again
yesterday afternoon?' '
"Yes; he doubled so often on his
tracks Gn the elevated road that at last
he eluded me. setting on a train which
I failed to boai d. Yon see, it was impos
sible to tell, till the moment of starting,
whether be would take a train or not.
He would mix with the crowd and seem
anxious to get on, and then at the last
moment Etep back. I had to imitate
him at the other end of the coach, and
finally he cot on iust as the guard at
my end slammed the gates."
"This was at Fcrty-second street?"
"Yes; he took the down train."
"Did he notice you in any way?"
I suppose" so, but no one would have
guessed it. He appeared entirely igno
rant of the fact that he was followed, so
far as watching me was concerned.
"You are not to blame. Go back to
his hotel and do the best you can. Leave
the rest to rue. I will discover where it
is he goes on these mysterious trips."
Left to himself Mr. Barnes' thoughts
took this form ;
"Wilson is no match for Mr. Mitchel.
That is evident. I wonder whether there
is any real object in this game of hide
and seek, or whether it is simply an in
timation to me that he cannot be shad
owed. If the latter well, we shall Eee.
Now let me think about those jewels
found iu New Haven. They tally exact
ly with the description. Their discovery
complicates tJfe case once more. I had
almost concluded that those in the safety
vaults were the ones stolen and that as
they really belong to Mr. Mitchel, as
proved by his receipts, he stole them to
win his wager. In this way he ran no
risk, since, if the crime were brought
home to him, he could not be imprison
ed, though he would lose the bet. Now
here is another set, evidently the right
ones. Mi. juitcnei was piamiy surpneu ,
at sight of the list which I found. I am
surelie did not know cf its existence, j
Therefore he may equally well have
known nothing about this duplicate set
of jewels. In that case the occurrence of
the train lobbery on the very night of
the wager may be simply a coincidence.
He says that the dead woman was a
blackmailer and that he gave her the
address of his Paris jeweler: May he
not have bought his. set from that very
man and may net this woman have
stolen the duplicate set recently and
brought them to this country? Plainly
the Paris Jeweler must he looked up. I
have his name, which I copied from the
bill of sale. If this line of argument is
true, some one has followed this woman
from France in order to rob her, after
allowing her to accomplish the risky
business of smuggling. Is that person
our friend Thauret? Along this line of
argument we arrive afc the conclusion
that Mr. Mitchel has not yet committed
his crime. He hinted that I should re
member this if I should exculpate him
from those already committed. But do
I? Why did he show me that ruby and
say that he meant to present it to his
sweetheart? Will be give it to her and
then rob her of it? If so, will she be in
the plot and make a hue and cry, so that
the papers may make a noise? That was
a part of the agreement in making his
bet. But, after all, what about that but
ton? No explanation explains which
does notihrow a light upon that."
Here Mr. Barnes was interrupted by
the announcement that Mr. Randolph
wished to speak with him. It must be

have the chance of confiding his vi. -
to the detective. "You see," he con-
ued, "it is one of the most dnu
things in tho world to say who is iu
who is not perfectly sane. Some exper
contend that nine-tenths of the peop.
in the world are affected by mania in
some form or other. I hold that any
man who makes a collection of any
kind of things, using them for other
than their legitimate uses, is in a meas
"Do you me"an legally insane? That
is to say, irresponsible:"
"As to responsibility, I cannot say.
But I think such a mania might tempt
a man to an illegal act. I must explain
my idea further. Postage stamps un
doubtedly have a very important value.
One who collects them after they have
been canceled, paying many times their
face value for them, is in my opinion
somewhat crazy, sinco he pays a ficti
tious nrica for what has no intrinsic
"You might say the same thing-of
paintings. The intrinsic value repre
sented in canvas and oil is little, yet
thousands of dollars are paid for pic
tures." "That, too, is an insanity, one, cf
course, which cannot he indulged in by
any save the rich. Bu it is not the
same as with the old stamp craze. Pic
tures remind us cf nature and appeal to
the senses cf all mankind by recalling
recollections brought into being by the
scene presented. There is therefore a
legitimate use for paintings, and a rea
sonable price as compensation for the
work and genius of the artist is perhaps
permissible. But should a man pay a
fortune for a single canvas and then
hang it in a room in his own house
where it will be seen by fevr savo him
self, that man I should consider de
mented. So with jewels"
"Ah! What of them?"
"Jewels have a market value, and a
place in the world. ,But when a man
goes about buying up every magnificent
specimen that can be found, andthen
locks his treasures up in a safe, ho is
simply a crazy man pure and simple."
"What has all this to do with the
case in hand?"
, "Everything. My friend is a crank on
the subject of jewels. Sensible and en
tertaining on any other topic, if you
mention the name of any kind of jewel
he is off in a minute, giving a long his
tory of this or that celebrated stone.
His especial craze in this connection is
to relate the crimes that havo surround
ed every stone of any great price. He
has made my blood curdle at his ghast
ly tales of cruel murder, committed to
gain possession of diamonds and rubies. "
"Then your conclusion is that by fill-
ing his mma witn sucn mougnus
mav have accustomed himself to the
idea of crime in connection with jew
"Exactly. The worst of it is that we
may become habituated to anything.
For instance, all ordinary men are
abashed in the presence of the dead. No
matter how strong minded a man may
be or how much he may scoff at tho
idea of ghosts and the like, he will pre
fer company if he must sit up with a
corpse. More than that, the slightest
sound in the room, as the moving of the
ice in the icebox, will cause a shiver to
pass through him. let physicians who
study frequently in the dissecting room
pomp to have that contempt of a dead
hedv that a butcher has for the meat
which he sells."
"Your argument is not bad, Mr. Bap
dolph. it is not impossible that your
friend might be generous and gentle
and yet with a mania for the possession
of jewels, and with the knowledge of
all the crimes that have been committed
to gain them, the temptation, to kill or
steal would perhaps become overpower
ing, wliere his passion sees an opportu-
pity to be satisfied. It is an odd world.
"Do you think that in a case of that
kind the man would be excusable on
the plea of mania? Legally, I mean?"
"Well, no, I do not! Psychologically,
I admit that you may be correct, and I
can sympathize with a man who became
a criminal in Euch a way. But legally
he would be culpable. At least I think
so. The question to be answered is, Did
your friend steal those jewels? You
slept with him that night. What do you
"I don't know what tathhik. He
could not have left the berth without
climbing over me, and, though I sleep
soundly, that ought .to have awakened

take the things, where qould he have
der or chill of this character means that
oni one is walking over the spot where
he person affected is to be buried.
Therefore an uncanny thought accom
panies it. With Mr. Barnes it is differ-
ant. He is free from all such notions,
yet insensibly ho is moved when this
occurs to him, because it has so often
happened that at the time he just hit
upon a clew. Therefore he stopped to
consider. All that Mr. Randolph had
said was that Mr. Mitchel, ho thought,
had come from New Orleans. In a mo
ment it flashed across Mr. Barnes' mind
that the dead woman had told him that
she had lived in New Orleans. Was
there any significance in this fact? Did
the man and the woman know each oth
er in the southern city?
"How do you know that he is a south
erner?" asked Mr. Barnes.
"Oh, that was easily discovered by
his accent," replied Mr. Randolph.
"Besides, he claims to be from the
south, though I think he is rather in
clined not to speak of his home. I have
an indistinct recollection of his telling
me once that he was born in New Or
leans and that he had some painful rec
ollections of the place. That is the only
time that he ever alluded to it, how

statement. This assumption of knowl
edge made him more than overconfident
of the skill of detectives, and especially
of the one before him.
You know that?' r said he. ' ' Would
