I Si I thought that she heard
the lock click. As her husband passed tho
door she had looked at tho marble clook on
the mantol-sholf and noticed that it was thir
teen minutos after 5. Mr. Peterson was a
very methodical man and invarinbly came in
at 5 sharp. It was tho delay that mado his
wife remember the time so accurately. Mrs.
Peterson told the polico aftorwards that she
thought her husband carried a small package
when he went upstairs, but she was not sure
Mrs. Peterson's visitor left for home at 6.80,
and Mrs. Peterson went to tho nursery to see
if Blanche and Harry were getting ready for
dinner. Then she went to her own room to
, k ilrons.
At 0.15 a chambermaid coming downstairs
saw standing in the hallway a very stout
man, about whoso shouldors was thrown a
red table cover. Sho screamed, and the stout
man, who appeared to be on his way to tho
front door, quickened his steps, drew back
the bolts as readily as though ho had been
accustomed to them, and went out.
ThiB was all that the polico could learn
from the family of what had happened bofore
the disappearance of Mr. Peterson was dis
covered. The appearance of tho stout visitor In tho
hall alarmed tho chambermaid, who ran at
once to the kitchen, whero sho spoke of him
to tho cook. The two womon hurried to the
basement door and looked up and down tho
street. Tho stout man was not in sight. Tho
dining-room silver was all right and nothing
had been disturbed in tho parlor. Tho cook
went back to tho kitchen and tho chamber
maid hurried upstairs again to Mrs. Peter
son's room, where Bhe related what sho had
seen. " It was plain that a visitor would not
call arrayed in a tablo cover," Mrs. Petorson
said, and she did not have any acquaint
ance answering to tho stout man's descrip
tion. So she put on a wrapper and went
to tell Mr. Peterson about it.
Tho library door opened readily. Tho
aroplight was burning, and its green shade
did not make the room look very cheerful.
Mr. Peterson was not there. Uis overcoat
and hat were on tho lonnge, and on thefloor
in front of tho mirror, between the two
bookcases opposite the door, lay some frag.
snents of glass and a piece of rubber tubing.
tbere were drops of blood on the floor, uud
a blood-stained handkerchief lay on a chair.
.-tus red tablo cover that had been on tho
, blglibrary ta bio was missing.
A The story told by Mrs. Peterson when tho
1 police arrived was that sho was startled but
I not particularly ahmuod. Bho thought her

I room. But after the house had been searched

Ubrary, found a rumpled shoot of wrapping.
paper and a pieco of blue cord under Mr.
Peterson's overcoat. It was not there boforo
Mr. Peterson came in. They put tho frag
ments of glass together and became satisfied
that thoy had formed a bottle, and that tho
rubber tube had fitted to the bottle's mouth.
They were unable to decide what had been
in tho bottle. The piece of -tubing, frag
ments of glass, wrapping.paper and bluo
cord were put carefully by as clues which
might bo usod Inter. The blood-stained
handkerchief was also saved.
Tho detectives examined every member of
tho household. Tho chambermaid's state
ment was taken down in writing. She said
that the stout man was quite tall and must
have weighed a great deal yes, he might
have weighed 200 pounds, as near as she could
judge. Ho didn't have on any hat, and she
couldn't describe his clothing becauso ho
was wrapped up in the table cover. Yes, she
was sure that it was the cover of the library
table. She had just caught a glimpse of his
face, and would know him again, she thought.
No ; she had never seen him before, andin
dignantly denied that ho was a cousin or
lover of hers. Tho detectives asked her if
sho was suro that her stout man was not a
thin man carrying Mr. Petorson (who was
aUo thin) away with the table cover wrapped
around them both. The girl said sho was
sure that such was not the case.
After this Mrs. Peterson was closely ques
tioned as to her husband's habits. Did she
think that ho had eloped with another
woman ? Mrs. Peterson wept and said she
was certain he had not. Had ho any bust,
ness troubles ? No ; she was sure of that,
too. His income, aside from his business,
was large, and he had thought of retiring.
There was no insanity in his family.
Tho detectives asked her for a photograph
of her husband, and, after she had given it to
them, they asked for his height, color of hair,
and oyes. weight, and for any marks or
peculiarities by which he might be identified.
Ileforo they went away they instructed Mrs.
Peterson not to give any information to the
press ahput tho absent man, or to tell any
thing except that Mr. Peterson was missing.
That, of course, was necessary. They believed
that a great crimo had been committed, and
they would bring the guilty to justice. Secre.
cy, howevor, wasabsolutely necessary. Would

At the bottom of the advertisement was the

A large number of reporters called on the
lawyer that day and evouing. and they also

details were carried out, and all the informa

who had been unable to get auy information
at the upstairs door, camo back an hour later,
and knocked at the basemont door. The
cook opened it. He did not ask her any
questions at first, but finally brought the dis
appearance of Mr. Peterson into the conver
sation. He didn't appear a bit anxious to know
about it. A f ov judicious compliments made
the cook his friend, and she invited him into
the kitchen to have a cup of tea.
There ho confided to her that he was a re
porter, but that it should never bo known
that she had told him about Ms. Peterson's
absence. The cook hadn't told him yet. but.
of course, she imagined that she had, and
after making him solemnly promise never to

the young man said that he would have to go,
the cook shook bands with him with warmth,
and said that she wonld be pleased to have
him drop In after 8.30 any evening and take a
friendly cup of tea, which was of the best.
The reporter went to work with a will, and
on the following morning, under tho head of
" Is It a Murder?" printed a two-column
story about the disappearance of Mr. Peter
son, in which the stout man and the library
tablo cover took an important part. All tho
other papers were beaten on the story, so.
according to the acceptod code, they denied
it the day after. Then something happened

It was on Monday evening that Mr. Peter
sou disappeared, and no tidings were re
ceived or him on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Mrs. Peterson, prostrated by the shock, had
been ordered by her physician to keep her
bed. The two detectives alone had been
allowed to see her. She was a young woman
and had a strong constitution or she would

who was fast beginning to recover from the
effects of the examination to whioh sho had
been subjected, said sho would venture out
doors and sweep the sidewalk. She had
swept out the area and was leaning on her
broom to get a better view of a blue-eyed
butoher boy who had just passed when she
caught sight of a heavy man who was ad

Sho screamed so loudly that the butcher
boy dropped his basket and ran towards hor.
The stout man came nearor, too. Tho cham
bermaid, a strong Irish girl, seemed to re
cover at this. She threw both arms about
the stout man's neck and cried out to the
butcher boy :
" Hun for a policeman, quick. I've got the
fat man who stole away Mr. Peterson."
The stout man struggled hard to break
from the girl's embrace, but he could not.
She had taken a hold to stay, and sho did.
"Mary," he gasped. "I'm surprised at
such conduct, and in the street, too. What
would your mistress say if she should see
" And the villian knows my name," panted
tho chambermaid, making her embrace
around the stout man's neck all the tighter.
"What'U me mistress say. Sure she'll say
what have you done with Mr. Peterson."
" Itidiculous," said tho stout man, "why
It was at this moment that the butcher boy
arrived with the policeman (Officer Muf
vaney), who seized the stout man by tho col
lar, clubbed him lightly, and then demanded
what be meant by hitting the " gurrl."
The chambermaid did not give the stout
man or any one else a chance to say a word.
Sho reeled off tho history of Mr. Peterson's
disappearance with a rapidity that confused
Officer Mulvaney, but ho, of course, had too
much pride to snow it.
One fact impressed him, however, and that
was that the stout man was worse than the
ordinary prisoner, bo he clubbed him again,
but it is only fair to say, not very hard. Then
he told tho chambermaid to come to the
Police Court at 8 o'clock the next morning,
and dragged the stout man off to the lock-up.
He flung open the station-house door,
shoved the Btout man in front of tho Ser
geant's desk and said :
Tho Sergeant opened the blotter and' pro
ceeded to take the stout man's pedigree.
" What is your name ?" he inquired.
" Andrew Peterson," said the prisoner.
" That's the namo of the man I've arrested
him for kidnapping," interrupted the police
man. " Shut up, will you," politely interposed
the Sergeaut, who happened to have been at
the desk when Mr. Peterson's disappearance
was first reported. " Let me get his pedi
gree." In answer to other questions, the stout man
said he was thlrty.four years old, was a com
mission merchant, born in New York, was
married and had a wife and two children.

how it is that you, who are very big and stout,
can be Mr. Peterson, who was very light and
thin. Why, man, you weigh a hundred
pounds moro than Mr. Peterson."
Then the Sergeaut, who was a very fair
man, sent the prisoner down to a cell with
out asking him any questions which might
tend to criminate him or do him injury on
" I think it's a clear enso of murder," ho
said to the doorman. "He's tho most hard

Being a fair-minded man, however, he
only put down on tho blotter, "Suspicious
On the dav following the arrest of the
stout man a "body was found in the rivor.
Tho fibh had been at it so that it was unrec
ognizable. Several friends of Mr. Peterson,
who wero taken to look at it by tho polico,
said that thoy could nut positively identify
it. ThiB was enough for the detectives.
They couldn't swear that it was not Mr.
Peterson's body. The next day a number of
papers printed that Mr. Peterson's body had
been found, and that he had undoubtedly
been carried to tho rivor and thrown in.
The stout man was indicted under the
name of John Doo for murdering Mr. Peter,
son. Some thought be had gone a little de
mented after committing the murder (tho
general opinion was that he had committod
it), and that the name of his victim being
constantly in his mind, had caused him to
say that it was his own name. The polico
laughed at this. It was pure nerve, thoy
said. Ho knew that they were after him,
and that he couldn't escape any way, so ho
pretended that he was Mr. Peterson, so as to
work the insanity dodgo on the jury and get
off that way.
What tho prisoner had said since his ar
rival and who he really was had not been
let out by the police, even if they knew
anything, whioh was doubted. Tha news
paper reporters worked like beavers, but
Tho young man who had interviewed the
cook was again a little more successful than
the others. He learned that a Btout man,
wrapped in a red tablo cover, had called at a
second-hand clothing storo and bought a suit
of clothes there. Tho clothes he had on woro
much too small for him and wero ripped in
all the seams. Ho bought u hat, too. Ho left
the table cover in tho btore and said he would
call for it later. He also put on the suit ho
bad bought and told tho dealer that he might
keep tho old clothes. Then the stout man
The dealer said that he seemed much agi
tatod and was blaeding from a wound In his
hand. After this all trace of tho stout man
was lost uutil his arrest. Tho police read
about the clothing and tablo cover being in
the second-hand clothing store, and went
there and got thorn.
The cover was identified of that of tho
library table, and tho clothing as that worn
by Mr. Peterson when lie disappeared. The
trial of the stout man was awaited with im-
John Doo, as the stout man was now called
in the newspapers, appeared to be entirely
without friends, and a young lawyer was
assigned by the Court to defend him. It was
an interesting caso, and tho lawyer, who was
both bright and ambitious, determined to
make a reputation for himself if he could.
After his first interview with tho stout
man he seemed pale and worried. He had
just seated himself in Ills ofllco when tho
reporter who had interviewed the cook
called. The lawyer knew him well, for they
had been college mates.
" I'm glad to see youi" ho said. "I'm the
most mystified man in tho world."
" I'm glad to see you, too," said tho re
porter. You're assigned as Doe's counsel
in tho Peterson murder cose, and I waut to
talk to you about it."
" And I want to talk to you about it, too,"
said the lawyer, " Hut, understand, what
I'm going to tell you now is not for publica
tion. Later it may bo used, but not at
The young lawyer wiped big drops of per
piration from his forehead and continued:
" I have just come from interviewing Doe.
It was the first timo that I had bad an oppor
tunity of talking to him. Ho was sitting on
the cot in his cell, and a sadder-looking man
I never saw. I explained to him that I was

' I do not know anything about Mr. Peter
sou's death,' he went on almost solemnly.
'He is not dead. I am Andrew Peterson,
and am alive, as you can Bee.'
"My impression was," the lawyer con
tinued, " that tho man was crazy or a knave.
On tho latter supposition, I told him that it
was hard to believe that he could be Mr.
Peterson when ho was not a bit liku him, and
there was such an enormous difference in
their weights. I said that it would bo wiser
on tho trial to adopt somo other lino of do.
fense thun that. In my opinion it seemed
tho best courso to deny that a murder had
taken placo, and force the prosecution to
provo that Mr. Peterson was dead. They
could not prove that tho body found waB his,
and there was nothing to show that ho had
been made away with. It seemed to mo
doubtful if any jury could find a vordict for
murder unless they were pretty suro that a
murder hud been committed."
Tho young lawyer wiped his brow again
and drew a long breath.
" What happened noxt," ho wont on, " was
startling. The man got up from the cot and
paced restlessly up and down tho jail corri
dor for a few moments. Then ho came into
the cell ugaiu and sat down.
"'I wonder,' ho lemarked, absently, 'if

murdered himself and stood in danger of be

moment's thought, ' I am going to toll you the
whole story. It isn't a very probablo talo, I
own ; nor is it one that I should myself be
llkelv to buliove if auy one told it to me.
But,' he said, earnestly, ' I assure you that it
" Ho picked up a newspaper from tho cell
floor, and showed mo in It a pfcttiro of Mr.
Peterson, his description and tho reward.
" ' Please read that description.' he said,
' and then look carefully at the picture. Do
fore I go into details I intend to call your
attention to a few facts that may make my
story moro probable.'
"Ho waited patiently while I read, and
when I raised my eyes ho stood up and baid :
" ' The description says that Mr. Potursuii
was flto feet cluven iuches tall. Such 1b my
height, as you may observe. Thirty-four
ytarsold. I look that age, do I not? IJrovwi
hair and gray eyes. Minn answer these.'
" ' Yes,' I interrupted. ' But ho weighed
130 pouudB and you weigh over 200 pounds.'
" ' I am coming to that,' ho said. ' Have

tell mo, if tho faci were fresher, would It not

blance in tho features.'
" I looked carefully and had to confess
that I did."
" Itemarkable," wild the reporter, who had
a theory of liis own regarding tho rase.
" This is nothing," continued the lawyer,
again mopping his forehead, on which cold
sweat stood, " to what ho said later. Ho had
grown excited and agaiu paced tho corridor.
When he hud calmed down ho returned uud

" ' I am Andrew l'etersou,' ho said onco

boy and healthy enough, but there wus little
flesh on my bones. I tried hard to grow

" I felt that I was doomed to remain thin,
