"Ah! That leaves us amplo chance to

"We'll make Kenyonvllle by mid

"At Brady's office, I think. I know

"No, sir, I hdd no more than time to

"But they'll remark your absence, and

don't'know Just what harm It will do
now. The papers can hardly yet have

If all 'goes well. I, hope you've got

aon." He laughed shortly. "I Invested

OraXton arose and looked about. One
er two of the police were In the (ore
part of the place. He walked in to
them, to learn what had been accom
plished. wa ,. m-n ha,1 been raucht: ecn

identify some ot me crown inn. mb"
bn connected with his Imprisonment.
For the? moment his sole desire Was to
return to Kenyonvllle. '
With Jennlson on one side and an
officer on. the other, he left the house
and struck out rapidly for the depot.
In ten minutes he stood upon his meet
ing ground with conon. .
Half aft hour remained before train
time. Grafton secured a handful of
teletram blanks and sat down to the
task of advising Burleigh as to the- situ
ation. When he had reached the end
of bis HDtfrevlated message Jennlson
was waiting with the tickets. The chief
clerk's face was white and weary, but
there wag a quality of hippy relief upon
ii wmen prompiea.uraiion to stop.
"Jennlsori," lib said, "I may be fool'
lsh. but I'm Kolnr to make you a dtodo
tltlon. If you like, you may come back
with me, "remain In the office and see
the thlnff-thi-ouch. . If T decldn to nrose-

Which Is to to be?"
"I'm, going back with you, Sir, Graf
ton." Grafton smiled suddenly.
"All right, Jennlson. Come along."
Back to Kenyonvllle.
NIOHT closed in and the train
roared along toward Kenjon
vllle. . ar5.fton na Jennlson talked
out little. The latter sat. half dozlrt?,
and spoke only when Orafton addressed
him. That was rarely, for Orafton had
much to occupy his mind.
To all appearances, the end of his
chase waa ln sight, and a remarkable
chase It had been!
Was the trouble really not yet made?
He i turned to the chief clerk.
"flee here, Jennlson!"
"Tou are sure that none of the forg
In has been done? '
"To the best of my knowledge, they
had no Intention of going to work on
the papers urlttl late tonight."
"I wonder why7"
"The man Carvel suggested that. He
satd'that so long as the papers were to
be shown tomorrow afternoon dnd were
supposed to be signed at noon, the Ink
should be as fresh as possible." '
"Ahi" Orafton's eyebrows went up.
"I'd forgotten that. Jennlson. Your
forger has a good head."
"He is an expert, according to Col
son." "And that Is the same Colson who
has hnd such n good reputation in Ken
jonvllte this past few years?"
Slightly spaced front. Made

ceedingly smart 2 for 25c
duett, Peabody fc Company, Ttot.N.T.
Jennlson nodded silently.
"Do you know the details of 'the
crooked work that has been going on?"
"Only that Brady and Colson have
been making about 50 per cent on all
the work that haa been done and ar
ranging; It so that they boast about de
tection being impossible."
"Pleasant!" Orafton sat back again.
The hour rolled on slowly: the train
rumbled ahead with Its monotonous
clatter. At 11 they drew up at Haatlngs,
and Orafton smiled. Just one hour
more. Just sixty more' minutes, ana ne
would be within reaching; distance ot
the whole choice cfew.
Toward the end ot that hour he could
hardly keep his chair. Had It been poe
alhln hn would nlmoat have tried brib
ing the .engine crew to greater speed:
over aavuiiu wccuicu uikhqh wu- iw
twenty times It usual length. They
stopped for water, and Orafton drummed
with his foot, watched the sleepy pas
sengers, and swore under his breath
until they were under waygjgaln.
But at last the first straggling lights
of Kenyonvllle appeared, grew rnore nu
merous, and finally merged' Into the un
broken lines of eteet lamps .that Oraf
ton knew so well. , 4Ie leaped' from hi
rhalr and walked to the door, with
Jenntlon close behind.
As the train drew up, he was upon
tho step, and before It reached a stand
still he had Jumped to the platform.
A ngure ran out 01 me snanuw 01 ins
station roof and hurried across to him.
ararton held out a nana.
"Well. Mr, Grafton!"
"Back again and alive, although, at
one tlmo the prospect for that aian t
seem over-bright, I must say."
"Ah! and you brought back Mr, Jen
nlson, did you?"
"Yes. he decided to come and see the
end of the game. Burleigh," said Oraf
ton, easily. "You reocrved my wire, of

"That'a nnt hard to believe."

"Good! the other fellow whom I liae

"lie did nothing of the sort," chuckled
Burleigh. lie returned on tne same

Just as we were shaking hands, and
went on home."
"But was Jennlson followed to Chi

tective. "I waited an hour or two for
further details, and I may say. Mr.
nmfton. that I was on the point of
starting for- Chicago mynelf when your
message came. A few minutes later my
man's second wire arrived, and I knew'
that vou were loosn again and safe,"
Orafton shook his liead-wlth admira
tion that was past bewilderment. -,
"By Jove. Burlelghl I never had much
to do with detective work before, but in
the future vou can have my business."
The detective laughed softly.
"However. Mr. Orafton, you are here,
and that's tiro greatest consideration.
Now for -the rest of the crowd."
"Sure enough. You know where they

"They stayed there for a couple of

"Yes:' Bra"dy got "there first. Next
came Colson, about 10:30. They had,
been together about nrtetn minutes
when along comes our Mr. Carvel, -as
you call him."
'And they are there now?"
"They were about twenty minutes
A hard smile appeared on Grafton's
"Come along, then, Burleigh. We'll

his chin. "What I want Is that bundle

Orafton motioned Jennlson, standing
apart, and he Joined the pair. They
walked through tho depot and stepped
aboard the waiting car outside. The
ride wag short. Before many minutes
they stepped down, outside the building
where Brady' offta were loeatofl.

Heart to Heart
BY THE EDITOR OF THE CAVALIER
NOT a a prisoner, but as a spectator, I onee visited court
room in New York where a belligerent vub bclnjr tried for
disorderly conduct. Amonrj other things, he climbed four
lamp-post in fifteen minutes and tried to eat the Welsbadt banter.
Hl attorney, something of an adept at theatrical, had the four chil
dren and the weeping wife of his client In the courtroom. He made
very noble speech to the court in which he touched upon the previous
placidity of the accused and pointed out the extenuating circum-,
stances Jn a life that had never before come In contact with the hardt
atmosphere of the courtroom.
"I beg for clemency, for mercy," he aaid. .
"I appreciate," responded the court, "the fact of thla beink, the
first offense, and therefore Impose a trivial fine of fifty dollri.'V'
Immediately the wife let out a terrifying scream and fell prone .
Upon the floor. i , ' L
"You see," aald the attorney, "even that I a hardship upon the
whole family. I beg that you -will reflect further and lessen .the fine."
The court stroked hie "whiskers. , t ,
'Very well. We will make the flne twenty-flv dollars." ?
The attorney closed his law books, and, bending across the'couHsel ,
table, saidto the Judfre, In a soothing voice,"'Your honor,. may it,
please the court I should like to Instruct my client's wife to
scream again." '
My word, the Judge fined the lawyer for contempt of court and
soaked the offender with six months in the workhouse.
Now, if this lawyer had been a CAVALIER reader, he would
have recognized the benefits of the first concession and won his case.
When fifty per cent.' of a proposition is AI, first-class, do not ex
