Klcctric Light is the magnet that draws trade. The
bright More is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the attraction ot a brilliant, Klcclrically lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of a brass band.
Is your couictitor with the Htcetricnlly illuminated show
windows, bright interior and sMrkliug Klcctric Sign getting
nn advantage over you? The moth never Mutters around the
uulightcd caudle! Up-to-date stores nowadays consider
shop-window lighting a necessity, whether they remain open
after dark or not. Competition foiccs modern methods.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with Klcctric
light will make many u sale "the night before." Klcctric
light compels attention, make eisy the examination of your
display, shows goods in detail and fabrics in their true colors.
And don't neglect the Klcctric Sign. It is soliciting
"tomorrow's" business every moment it is lighted -burning
your name in the public mind. It is a solicitor that never
becomes weary never stops work - costs little.

Ho stepped to Lady Mary's side Her head was bent low, her faco

A Singular Coincidence.
V, WILLARD C. IRVING.
i elllK chief of tho detective bureau in which I was employed
III ono day told mo that a prisoner convictod of murdor
1 1 .atinl tn ann tun In tila nnll. T wont tft tlm nrldOll nnd
found an educated and refined man, who Bald to mo :
"I'm not guilty of this murdor, but I'vo boon proven
guilty, and thoy'ro going to bang mo. Now, I wont you to mnko an
effort for my lifo. I shall not swing for six weeks, and mcanwhilo
want all your time I'll givo you $500 for your timo and $10,000
if you'll find out who committed tho murder and thus exonorato mo."
Tho murdered man wns a Mr. Jnrvis. Ho nnd tho condomnod, Hor-
ton, lived near oach othor and had had business dealings togothor.
O110 night Ilorton visited Jnrvis. They bad hot words, Horton accus
ing Jnrvis of having swindled him, and tho next morning Jarvis waa
found dead, shot through tho body. Tho murdored man was tho only
person in tho houso oxcopt tho sorvants, who slept in tho back part
and did not hear tho shot.
I worked a month endeavoring to find a clow to somo ono who
would havo hnil nn interest in Mr. Jnrvis' death. I failed signally.
Taking a box of tools, I wont, as a final expedient, to tho room
at 0 in tho ovoning tho hour Ilorton had visited Jarvis and
began a systematic- examination of tho locks, window catches, indeed
anything pertaining to entrnnco and exit. I found nothing and at
midnight, tired nnd disappointed, wont to sleep on a lounge Somohow
I couldn't got rid of tho fancy that I might soo somothing during tho
night to givo mo a clow.
But I didn't. With tho lifo of 11 follow being on iny hands I slopt
but littlo and was nwuko at daylight in tho morning. I was in a library,
and, besides books, it was filled with curiosities.
Among othor things I noticed on tho wall a pair of mooso'a horn
supporting un antique arquobus, It was hung in such a mannor that
it did not point parallol with tho wall, but at an aouto angle Tho sun
had beou up somo timo, and its rays woro converged by a couvex glass
in a fancy window into a brilliant spot on tho wall. I watched tho spot
travol as tho sun roso, aud it passod a short distanco from tho powder
pan in tho arquebus. I looked at tho chair in which Mr. Jarvis had
been accustomed to sit and noticed that tho wenpon pointed directly at
it It occurred to mo that if tho sun spot had passed exactly over the
pan and tho gun had been loaded it would havo been fired. Then it
suddenly eutorod my head that this sun spot and gun might have boen
connected with Jarvis' doath.
I got up and examined tho gun. It was empty. I called tho Berv-
ants, Ihoy reported that their roaster had kept it loaded, declaring
that it was yet good enough to protect him against burglars. At any
rato I believed Jarvis had boen killed by tho gun oven if tho sun spot
had not fired it.
Tho next morning I took an assistant from an astronomical obsorv-
atory into tho room. Ho noticed tho courso travoled by tho sun spot
aud figured its track on tho dato of tho murdor. After finishing his
computations ho announced that tho spot on that dato passed over tho
pan of the arquebus. Ono thing more I got up on a stepladdor,
lookod down tho guu'a barrol and saw that it pointed directly at Mr.
As soon as I had completed these investigations I went to the
prisoner and announced tho result. I shall nover forgot tho look of
intolligonco and hope that camo into his faco. Tho next morning I had
tho prisoner's attorney in tho room, and the next tho judgo that had
sontenced him. Tho attorney formed the theory that Mr. Jarvis was
sitting in bis chair the morning the sun spot fired the arquebus aad
Tho prisoner was accorded a now trial, but it was a very short one.
Tho jury, after visiting tho room and seeing a demonstration by the
attornoy, who arranged that tho suu spot should fire a bullet into Mr.
Jarvis' chair, acquitted tho prisoner, Tho incident saved his life and
made my fortune. .
