"They're not going to take It as calmly
as that, are they?"
"Give It up shouldn't wonder!'
chuckled the detective. "They're not the
sort for Just this kind of business. They
know that we are two to one. and they
don't like risking It. They are not pro

"But we're not inside yet." responded
Burleigh, tiptoeing gently along. "No,
that's very true; and we may have a

Grafton wheeled around with startled
Working with a skill that bespoke
long practice, the pair had hurled the
detective's assistant to the floor, where
he lay stunned.
Jennlaon waa now In their grip.
"By George! That waa quick!" gasped
Burleigh. "Come on, sir!"
He plunged forward and clenched hla
flats. One of the men held Jennison.
The other stepped out quickly and his
flat soed toward Burleigh's face. But
the detective was even quicker. His
head went down, and hla hard knuckles
came up with a force and an aim that

By a Narrow Margin.
RADY'S face was a atudy. For a
moment he stared from Burleigh
and Grafton to the hallway
without, where stood the other
detective and Jennison, and farther
down his own two ruffians.
The chief clerk appeared to absorb
more of his attention than the rest A
black scowl gathered upon his face as
he regarded the man, and his lips
"You here, too, Jennison!"
"Where'd you go?"
"Yea and I took the police to the dive

Brady's fury rose; his lips rolled back
and hla teeth showed.

sword and had been In a real
war. The other was a little tin sword
which the real soldier had played 'with
when he waa a little boy.
When he hung the big awprd on' the
wall after he came home from the war
he said, "You are much larger than this
little fellow beside you, but you have
never killed Indians, and he haa"
Although he laughed; when he said It,
the little tin sword felt itself of great
Importance, and It did not mind In the
least the size of the big sword which
was many times as large as It was.
That night when the bouse was still
and dark, and the only light In the
room was from the dying embers on
the hearth the little sword said to the
big sword, "Is it true that you never
killed an Indian?"
"I have never killed anyone," an
swered the big' sword with dignity.
"What is the use of being a sword?
asked the little one, "Jf you 'never have
killed anyone. Why I have killed so
many Indians that I cannot remember
how many." And the little sword be
