THE BUSSING VALISE.
I was returning to Potersbuig, after an
absence of somo weeks. As our train
stopped at Twiss a young man got iu,
who, while not particularly shy looking,
hud tho air of a bis school boy out for a
holiday. In taking bis place in the com
partment he -first, with great care, put
in the netting n leather valise, which
evidently contained something precious,
as bo t-carcely took his eyes off .t during
the first hour of tiro journey.
You know how tediously monotonous
a railway is one quickly tires looking
tlirough tho vi?ow of tho coach at the
Btxaigbt line oi road flying past in the
midst of plains of a wearying bauicness
of aspect and to relievo tho tedium of
tho long, uneventful journey tho passen
gers naturally began to etiat ana ex
change opinions and confidences,
prompted alike by enuui and curiosity,
ivtid our j oung man would have found it
n difilcnlt matter to escape from his
Bharoof intenogation. His great anx
iety lest any accident should happen to
his valiso was so apparent to all that
one of tho passengers remarked on it to
him in a jocular way.
Ho reddened a littlo and replied: "It
is true, 1 do feel anxious, for 1 am
traveler for a largo jewelry establish
ment and am held responsible for a largo
sum, the valuoof somo diamonds in that
valiso, which I am charged to deliver in
This answer astonished mo not a littlo,
I confess. Tho first principles of pru
dnco should havo couusoled liim to con
ceal tho nature of theso valuable- arti
cles. It seemed to mo that ho was de
cidedly a novice in his business, thus to
discloso belore so many strangers the
fact of bib having a fortune in his pos
session. I do not know why for his
explanation was plausible but 1 felt a
distrust of him, and -et myself to watch
his movements from that time on. There
was an affectation of too much calm in
his nitamer. I thought.
Curing the chatter and pleasantry
common ainoug fellow tiaveleis, when
people talk without considering what
they say, the conversation tinned upon
woudoiful cases of theft and diamond
robberies, and, littlo by little, instances
were cited wheicin tho skill and rapidity
of the theft wero mai vclons.
Tho joung joweler was advised to
keop a Blimp lookout for his diamonds.
Was not Gc.n. Soinaionoff recently ti
victim to tho cleverness of a robber, who
actually abstracted a bundle ot rubles
from tho insido pocket of his coat?
"Oh," said tho young man, "I am not
uneasy; I am used to this sort of thing"
a statement which 1 did not believe.
I could not help feeling ho was not ac
customed to tho chaigo of gems of such
great value; ho had tho face of a child,
with a cliild's soft, sweet, innocent ex
pression, unfamiliar with care or re
sponsibility of auy kind.
On reaching Kiln wo all got out to
itretch our legs by a stroll on tho plat
itorai, and tho young joweler, evidently
not wishing to inako himself remarka
ble, followed our example, taking his
valise in hand as though unwiUing to
part with it for an instant. As the passen
gers crowded toward tho door he was
pushed violently forward by some one in
tho throne. At the same moment the
conductor appeared and refused to allow
us to leave tho carriage. mxv train was
behind time, ho said, and instead of tho
,nsual stoppage at Kiln a halt of merely
ii minute's limit was made. Whilo ho
jipoku tho locomotive whistled for the
train to proceed.
As we regained our compartment in
somewhat straggling order tho young
jeweler uttered a cry of fright, which,
notwithstanding all effort at control,
was ono of agony.
, "I huvo been robbed!" ho ciied.
It was truo. Somo bold operator, who
from au adjoing compartment bad over
heard our conversation and been allured
by wliat ho thus learned, had attempted,
with success, tho robbery of the jewels.
They wero gone tho thing was donol
Tho young man still hold in his grasp
tho handled of his valiso, which had been
adroitly cut, and in tho pressure of the
crowd ho had not felt the loss of weight.
Ho gazed around with an indescribable
expression of terror, nis despair was
truly pitiable, and it was as much
through sincere sympathy for tho unfort
tiuato youth as tho excitement of an in
cldentthus breaking the tiresome jour
ney'tlmt the passengers surrounded him
with extreme interest and curloHity, i
Tho theft had been accomplished witli
euniiielng skill and rapidity, and each
one hud wJiiiuUiiug to suy on tho subject,
"It is incredible."
'Wo hud only time to leavo our seuU)
and return to them ugaln,"
"It wwiia liku magic."
One man declared (hat tbu conductor

"Ko, hot A6 nothlnrt," ltnplorod tho
unhappy youth. Hut the other did nol

Inform tho i-onductor, and In n moment
returned with thntftiiicttor.nry, to whom
ho offered a string of suggestions as to
tho best means of rrcovoring tho lost
The conductor hesitated to tako action
In tho matter, but upon reaching tho
next station secured tho assistance of
two polico officers, whom ho put hi
"Tho baggago of thopnssengors should
bo searched," said tho man who bad
constituted himself tho leader iu tho
affair, and bo tho officers ordered.
At onco a vigorous search began ns tho
tniln rolled onward. Tho news spread
quickly from tho locomotive to tho bag
gage wagon, and every ono yielded with
good graco to tho examination. Tho
joung jeweler nlouo betrayed nn uneasi
ness; his face became livid, and ho Bwayed
back and forth us though on tho verge of
The search wna unsuccessful, and the
officers shook their headi in a doubtful
Suddenly our obliging neighbor, who
had shown divided instincts us a detect
ho. and who entered into tho work uith
aider, caught sight of a passenger who,
wiappcd in u voluminous cloak, iiiul
seemed to sleep during tho turmoil. Ap
proaching him, ho throw aside tho cloak,
and disclosed to view tho missing valisel
"Ah," said he, with u triumphant air,
"I knew well it was not far off."
Tho passenger thus disturbed did not,
however, appear put out by tho discovery.
"Leave mo alone," said ho: "tho valiso
"Yours!" cried the man; "why, the
handles are missing! You nro too cool
b far. What do you think of tho ini
pu lenco of jour thiol, my young sir?"
turning to the jeweler, proud of tho rolo
he had so successfully plajed "jourec
ognizo your value, do jott not?"
The poor young fellow lost his head.
Hi should have thanked tho man foi hit
ze.il, taken back his propel ty and thiii
terminated tho uffair; but ho obstinately
replied, "No; it is not mino."
Tho thief breathed again, the perilous
moment passed. "You eee," said ho,
with a. supeib disdain.
Dut our amateur detective was not
convinced ho would not give up tho
battle. "I l ecognizo it myself," ho cried:
"1 am not blind; for tho matter of that,
it is easily determinedif this bo tho miss
ing valiso or no. Wo know that tho ono
we seek contains diamonds hero will bo
incontestable proof. Hand mo your key,
sir; wo shall Eoon arrive at tho truth ol
this matter. I cannot comprehend your
doubts on the subject."
But at this moment a terriblo cry was
heard. Tho young man rushed madly
to tho platform of tho coach and threw
himself headlong under tho wheels of
tho train, which crushed him iuto a
As you will Itavo dinned, the oungman
who passed as a tiaveling jeweler was,
in reality, an agent of tho Nihilists, and
tho valise ho guarded with bo much caro
and anxiety contained, not diamonds,
but models of newly invented explosives
which were to bo tested for tho first
timo by a committee in Moscow, whither
he was taking them. Tho wretches who
had given him this abominable commis
sion had e idently chosen a young stu
dent fresh from college.
At tho next btation the valiso was
opened and found to contain tho infunal
machine, which explained thoiesistanco
ofli'iod by tho unfortunate j outh to the
di covery. Ho had no doubt come to the
conclusion that all was lot. In his
stuptiaction ho did not consider that hi
could have pi evented tho opening of the
valise by auknowkdm the piopeity: he
poreibly saw in a vision tho leoult of
fii.dmg its contents. Ho feared ar
rest, and that it would forco hmi to
bieak vows implicating otbeis, and be
ing unable to copo with it ho lushed to
his destruction. Truo Flag.
