THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, APRIL 15. 1911
By MARTHA V. MONROE
Copyrirht, 1910. by American PrM
N"llck," said Mr. Scriver, cashier of
the bank In which I was office boy,
"I've got to Intrust you with an im
portant job. There's no one else at
hand to do it. You're only sixteen
years old and not very big and strong
at that; but, as 1 said, I haven't any
one else Just at present I want yon
to take $2,000 to Ingham."
The money was given me in bills
and placed In my breast pocket I
got into the bank's buggy, and Just
before I drove off a revolver was
handed me. -
As I crossed a street I saw a man
sitting In a buggy just far enough
awny to prevent my , seeing who he
was. I should not have thought any
thing about him had it not been that
I soon heard the rattle of wheels be
hind me. Looking back, I saw him,
recognizing him for the man I hod
first seen by an enormous felt hat he
wore and a light brown overcoat
Still, I thought nothing about being
followed, though I noticed that be
was moving faster than I. I wouldn't
show any trepidation by whipping up
my horse even If I had suspected him.
So I Jogged along at an even pace till
I bad traversed half the distance,
when, reaching a long stretch of road
through a wood, I beard the horse In
the rear coming at a rapid pace.
If I had positively known that some
one was coming to rob me I might
have turned and opened fire. I dread
ed being falsely alarmed, or, rather, I
considered It best not to annenr to dis
trust my follower. He might not be
intending to attack me. He might
know me to be a bank messenger, but
not be sure I had money with me.
AH these points passed rapidly
through my mind, and I still jogged
on at the same gait.
When the man overhauled me I rec
ognized him as one I bad seen about
town, a hard featured fellow, but I
didn't know anything good or bad
about him. But I knew before he
spoke what he wanted, for he held a
cocked revolver ' In his right hand
Mine was handy in my right coat
pocket but before I could get it out
be could riddle me.
"You're a bank messenger," he said.
"You've got money with you, and I
"How do you know that?"
"I was at a telephone using a party
, wire and heard the bank at Ingham
say thay had to have $2,000 before 3
"I've seen you in Beverly often.
You're taking a great risk in robbing
"Dead men tell no tales." A diabol
ical expression passed over Ms face.
"I can tell you a better way than
that Murder will out you know.
Now, suppose you take me in with
"What do you mean?" '
"Why, you might give me a part of
the funds, and I can go back and re
port that I've been robbed of the
"Oh, I see you're on the make your
self!" "I don't like living on $6 a week
very well, seeing money about me like
the leaves under those trees and not
have a show for any of It"
"All right Hand out what you've
got and I'll give you a quarter of It"
"Not so fast I've got to have proof
that I've been robbed. I shall tell a
fine story of how I defended myself,
and to show that I put up a good fight
I must have some bullet holes in my
I held up my bat and asked him to
put a hole in it with his revolver. He
did so. I took off my coat and he put
three more holes in it for me. Then I
told him that it wouldn't do for me to
go back without a wound and asked
him to graze the fleshy part of my leg.
When be attempted to do so I gave a
spasmodic move, and he missed. I
begged him to make one more trial
He made it and I moved again.
"Hands up!" I cried, whipping my
revolver from my coat pocket
I shall never forget the expression
on his face when he realized that he
had emptied the six chambers of his
revolver and was at my mercy. I
could see by the workings OT his mind
through his eye that he was debating
whether he would attempt to over
power me, a mere boy, despite my ad
vantage. I made up his mind for him
by firing point blank in his face. I
knew I risked killing him, but I didn't
mind that. He dodged, and my bullet
missed him. But my shot unnerved
"Drive on," I said.
He realized that it' was an alterna
tive between prison and death and
chose the former. I supposed be bad a
second revolver with him and watched
him very closely. But he had not I
drove him into Ingham and turned
him over to the police, then took the
money to the bank.
Isaid nothing about my adventure
except at the police office, leaving Mr.
Scriver to read an account of it in a
newspaper. He came to a desk where
I was mailing circulars with the paper
in his hands. The expression on his
face was a sight to behold.
"What the dickens Is this, anyway r
he asked, staring at me,
"It's all true," I replied
lie was silent for a moment then
went away, returning with a check
for $500 in his hand.
"Yon take Billings' place," he Mid,
"at his salary."

There Is a body of troops in France
called the foreign legion. It is com
posed of men of all nationalities, most
of them fugitives from Justice. That
a man Is in It Is prima facie evidence
that he has an object for losing himself
to the rest of the world.
A soldier in the foreign legion con
spicuous for his retlued appearance
passed under the name of Franz Lud
Wig. He would not admit the country
from which be hailed, and since be
spoke several languages equally well
It was Impossible for any one to fix
upon the land of his nativity.
This Is the story of the so called
His real name was Count Joseph
Zadsky. ne had been honored by the
Intimate friendship of the crown prince
of bis native land. The prince and he
rode together, hunted together In
short all their amusements were In
common. The count was engaged to
marry the Baroness Sophia, daughter
of a prominent member of the sov
, The crown prince was possessed by
a passion for gambling. He did not at
tend the public gambling places so
plentiful In Europe. His hublt was to
play either In his own palace or wher
ever he wns Invited. One afternoon
he was playing In the home of a no
bleman where a house party had been
Invited to meet him. The prince was
playing with bad luck and was drink
ing heavily. Several of the guests
were also under the Influence of liquor.
Count Zadsky was present and. fear
ing that something would occur to cre
ate a scandal, begged his royal high
ness to retire from the game. . The
prince refused, and the game went on.
The excitement increased, both with
the increase of stakes and spirits con
sumed. But now the prince was win
ning. "These cards are marked," suddenly
shouted one of the party. ."There are
little protuberances on their backs."
"If you can feel them." said Zadsky,
"you must have cut down the skin of
one of your fingers for the purpose.
And if you have done that you have
Introduced the cards Into the game."
Amid a hubbub the cards were ex
amined and were found to have been
made for the purpose of swindling.
Then Zadsky said:
"All show the tips of your fingers."
Every man present made the dis
play except the crown prince. His ex
pression betrayed him. but his tonguo
came to bis defense.
"Gentlemen," be said, "do you ask
the heir appareh't to the throne to ex
onerate himself from cheating at
Zadsky was dumfounded. There
was a silence. Then the party arose
from the table and separated.
The story got out, and' the privy
council was convened to consider
what action should be taken. Some
way of exonerating the prince must be
devised. The people were loyal to the
crown, but It would never do for one
who must soon sit upon the throne to
appear before the people as a user of
marked cards. The council assembled
and. summoning all the men who had
been of the gambling party, examined
When Count Zadsky was examined
one of the first questions asked was
"How did you know that gamblers
using such cards as were used on this
occasion pare the tips of their fingers
to make them sensitive to the touch?"
"1 knew It as I know of any other
fact of which I have beard."
. "You were the person who an
nounced the fact that pared finger tips
go with these cards to the party, were
"And called upon the others, includ
ing his royal highness, to show their
"That will do."
The council after examining the wit
nesses continued its deliberations in
secret and broke up without giving out
any Information as to Its conclusions.
But the next morning Zadsky was
banished from the court, and the peo
ple breathed freely once more that
their prospective ruler bad been vin
dicated. One morning the soldier in the for
eign legion wrote a communication to
the president of France. At the same
time the president received a call from
a member of the diplomatic corps.
The result of the communication and
the visit was the forwarding of dis
charge papers to Private Franz Lud
wig, and he left the corps with the
congratulations of his comrades.
"What does It mean?" asked his cap
tain. "Have you not heard that the crown
prince of is dead?"
"Yes. It Is given out that he died
of an aneurism, but It has been said
that he committed suicide after a de
bauch. But what has that to do with
"It has this to do with It: The crown
prince will not be a sovereign. He
will be nothing, at least on earth.
Therefore a cloud resting on me has
been removed. I shall go to the cap
ital and receive an Important appoint
Count Zadsky'a prophecy was veri
fied. He returned to the capital, was
appointed as he predicted and married
the Baroneaa Sophia.
