without resorting to the formality of
paying for them.
The policeman io whom ho hnd been
given In charge had been accustomed
to listening lit unconvincing explana

tion. A few minutes later the stout
gentleman, also in the care of a police
man, arrived at the same destination.
Tho detective, whose curiosity had
been aroused, had watched 'the per

lie was perpetrating theft after theft
with tho utmost dexterity.
After n short Investigation he was
recognized to bo an expert and notori

but recently discharged from an asy
lum, whose mania took the form of
Imitating any person who 'might hap
pen to strike him. The professional
thief was beside himself with rage at
what lie described as the bad luck of
getting into trouble through tho vaga
