Macmurtrie Ponders the Problem,

Macmurtrie, when I ivas
settled In a chair in hl3 of

lhe preious night .gone and my out
look, on life as it should be of a sunny
mornlrtgr, "let's have the story."
And the little stout lawjer. haWng
crAmmed Ills nose full of snuff, rubbed
his nanus together and settled himself
in his armchair, beaming with expecta
tlon. Previously he had sent Sniffles,
as Jie called the droning clerk, on some
errand, so e were alone.

Don John to our coming to Glasgow.

changes that It Mas impassible to mark
Just what Impression m, tale made
upon htm, or if the frouns and gritn
aws were not all put on.
But when I came to the part about
JTarlposa's wedding with the Macdon
ald his interest was no longer doubt
ful, for he leaned forward to catch
very -ivurd. cautioning me at intervals
to'tak time, talc time." And when
I spoke, of Mariposa s. husband as the
"Chieftain of ttw Kying'' he stopped
me by flinging his arms In the air and

When I told him how MarIpoa had
nearly poisoned the wliole clan, his eyes
twinkled and he chuckled?
"What a blessing 1f she'd don it, or
Hea en had sunk their boat at the flood
And what next?"
"We ran awa that night as hard as

at the MnMonald's discomfiture, I
thought; hut. he buddenly whipped
around with a kind of inspired blaze in
"Look hpre. Rorie." he tald. Then he
hent forward and whispered In m car.
I know the blood rushed to my face, for
I had tried not to think of the possibility
of. wdat-he cskwl. I was trying to frame
b reply, when a great voice boomed up
the oilter stairway.

with a chuckle, "t never kenned a Hle

the Gaelic, "where were we?"
I rapidly told him the rest of the story
of our adventures, which had latterlj
much to do with the man Bordeaux.
