Amos was In hard luck nnd low spirits whon
"greon goods " circular (oil Into his hands.
IIo entered Into correspondence with tho
swindlers nnd, following their dlrectlons,came
toNew York by tho Baltlmoro and Ohio. Just
boforo the train reachod Jorsor City a young
man entered tho car and then sat down with
Amos, remarking as hodldso "Churchill. No.
8." this bolngthe countersign that tho swin
dlers had sent htm by mail. This Is tho story
ot AmoA'a .ndvonturea. as ho told them after
ward to tho Tollco Sorcoant at tho MorrUanta
The young man suggested to Ames that tho
train was boltig wn tolled, and they would bolter
gut off at tho next station, about flvo mllos
Iran Now York. Thore they took a trnln ovor
tho Pennsylvania road, and nfterrcaohlng Now
York went by n vory roundabout oourso to n
dingy llttlo room, where Amos wns introduced
to an old man, who gavo him a bundle of
"counterfeit" notos to examine.
" If I had put tho money In my poaketthen."
said Amc afterward. "I would have boon all
right, but they Insisted that It must be boxed
up to avoid eusplolon."
Ho negotiated (or $1,400 ol the bills nnd
hnndod over 3 HO (or It. Ho watched tho old
man closely as ho packed tho rolls of bills In n
small plno bov. Tho box wns (ull when Amos
we told to write hlsuamoand address on a slip
of MDer. 'l'lion a noatly wrappod-up parcel W03
glun to him mid ho hugged Itundor his nrm.
"Take him to tho train." said tho old man.
" You had bettor not take him back to tho botqo
dupot Our goods orosogood that the pollco
would iiko t'i Well to got their clutches on

Tho mt-ssvucer took Ames to tho Mott Haven

Unit out whether Mioy had given him an extra

vry Himllar packagp under his arm. A
fhrowd-looUnp lonngmnn was guiding him
ic Aire had t eon cnuorttni to the station. In
an Wiutnnt it flaHlicd ncrosa Ames's mind that
tue nountrymaii was a fellow victim, and ho
walkml up to him and whlsnerod:
"You have been bit just as I was."
Tho countryman did not understand tho
warnimr. but the messenger took alarm and nt
once started for tho door.
"(Moll him!" shouted Amos an he seized
tho.young man by the collar and oallod for
hdn. But the sharper got away and was out
of sight when Policeman Walsh ran in to soo
v, hat tho nolso was all about.
Ames's precious pookage of bricks lay on tho
floor where be had dropped it when ho seized
the grnen goods stoercr. The amazed country
man did not ret fully comprehond tbat he had
boon swindled until he opened his box. It was
filled with neatly out bundles of green paper.
This second victim said he was Charles Ny
berg, and that he kept a grocery in James
town. N.Y. He had paid $to5 forhls boxluli
if green paper, and had expected to find $3,200
in counterfeit money In It when ho got home.
Nybersr Is a trim-looking fellow, about 38
years old, and dresses plainly and neatly. He
tn.jfca less like a man who would be readily
ij Mrlndlod than does fie ranchman and mill
owner, Ames. Ames woara a broad-brlmmeil

tramped up and across town until Nyberg

They entered a dark little room where an old
man sat at a desk, and the dim light revealed
packages of crisp new bank notes all over the
desk. .A vounser man with a broken nose
guarded thu money. Ho was Introduced to
Nyberg as tho olil man's son. Nyberg's guide
xeuted himself by the door and carelessly

o( contomporary liooka. It stirs tho mind In

"Studies In Chnuoor." by Prof. Thomas B.
Louusbury of Ynlo University. Is published in
three volumes by narpor .t Brothers. This Is
u work nf notable thorouchnoss. and It Is ac
complished in exceptionally internet Inn fash
ion. One part of thn author's task has beon to
sift nnd dispose of tho misinformation regard
ing tho llfo ot Chauocr which lias long passed
for fucr, and from that Prof. Lou nsbury goes
on to discuss tho dangers that havo thrcat
uticd tho integrity ot tho text of Chaucer, to
11 x his genuine writings, to rovlow tho sources
nnd extent of Ills loaning, to show his
preclso relation to the English language
to consider his literary reputation, nnd to
study and critlclso his art. Prof. Lounsbury's
conclusions differ In many lnstancos from
those of others ot tho best known of tho stu
dents ot Chaucer, oven In points workod out
from Identical data. It is .probable that no
previous studios have left so clear nnd so war
rantable a plcturo of tho Actual Chaucer nnd
hlswork. Three vplumcs seema a rather for
midable amount of commentary and Inquiry
regarding n stnglo nnd a somewhat misty
figure In the poets' world, but nobody who bo
gins to read will complain of any lack of in
terest. Tho clear vlow, the complete informa
tion, tho ordorly method, tho abundant Ideas,
and tho vigorous and delightful stylo hno
proved wholly efficacious against so undesira
ble a contingency.
