"I never knew you to take so long
to wind up a case, Gilbert," he said
The detective flushed slightly, and
answered with the abrupt, nervous
manner characteristic of him.
"It is the most clewless case I ever
tackled," he said shortly. "There was
absolutely nothing-no sign-no evi
dence except that small piece of cloth
sticking to the tack on the side of
the desk where Mr. Rawiton usually
hung his penwiper. The cloth had
evidently been snagged from a rough
overcoat. The man who wore the
overcoat may have escaped in several
ways, the library was a first floor back

garden. The servants had been al

there was absolutely no one in the
house except the man who was mur

piece of tan overcoating for a clew.

"You do seem up against it this
time, Gilbert," he said, "but you'll win
out yet-if anybody can. Your record
doesn't show a single failure."
Gilbert got up and lit a cigar.
"It's hung on long enough-I want
to devote my entire time to it for the
next month," he said, taking his hat
and cane from the table. "I will either
succeed or give it up in 30 days from
Gilbert went to his office and sat
down at his desk.
"Miss Silverton, will you please
bring the book containing notes in the
RawIton case," he said to his stenog
rapher. His work had long ago placed
him upon a basis that made the office
and stenographer a necessity.
The girl stopped her machine sud

nervously, "has anything new devel

Gilbert's voice. "No-I simply want
to look at that piece of tan cloth
again," he growled. "Perhaps it has
changed color-or-or something by
now. Sherlock Holmes could have put
it under a microscope and found the
name and correct address of the
wearer done in India ink upon one of
the light threads. He would have also
been able to have explained satisfac

there-and not one of his many ad

The girl's eyes flew open wildly.
"Please say you won't do it," she
gasped, and her thin delicate fingers
clung to him like a frightened child's.
"Won't do what, little woman?" he
asked in amazement. "I wouldn't for
worlds do-anything that would dis

Her fingers clung to him and she
sobbed upon his shoulder convulsively.

against his coat.

"No-no! But they wouldn't have

ploringly, "for I was there-it was a

nail, and-I carried the pistol home in
my pocket," she added pitifully.
Gilbert siezed her hands almost
roughly. "I can't bear the suspense
tell me-tell me quickly why you were
there and how it occurred."
"He did it himself-he was half
drunk-and insanely unhappy. I went
there to get my sister's letters," a
mortified flush came over the paleness
of her cheeks.
The man went to her suddenly and
put his arm around her.
"Your young married sister?" he
She looked at him with a flood of
gratitude in her gray eyes.
"Yes-she's my twin sister-she was
Mr. Rawiton's typewriter before she
ever knew Dick,-and she had written
some very foolish letters. Mr. Rawl
ton was madly in love with her and
wanted to marry her. Marjorie is fool
ish and imprudent, but she's a good
girl," anxiously. "She had let him
give her a diamond ring and hand
some presents of all kinds. After she
met Dick-she sent them all back. Mr.
Rawlton has worried her ever since.
The notes were undated, and he has,
when drinking, threatened to show
them to Dick. Marjorie was very del
icate just then and when she received
the note containing his threat-I
thought it would kill her-I went to
see Mr. Rawlton that night myself. I
made the appointment with him over
the telephone, and he had sent the
servants out purposely. He had been
drinking-he, took the letters out of
the desk and waved them tauntingly
in my face. There was a pistol in the
same drawer where the letters had
been. He picked it up suddenly and
said he had a great mind to blow his
brains out-just to make the minx un
happy for the rest of her life-to let
her think she was the cause of it. He
was as crazily intoxicated by then as
a man could possibly be. I seized the
pistol to prevent any chance of his
harming himself. The pistol went off,
hitting him in the forehead. I only
had one lucid idea-that I must not be
found there. I put the letters in my
pocket, and the pistol, which had been
partly in my hand when the shot was
fired-I also put in my pocket uncon
sciously. I slipped through the side
window and went home. That's all,"
Gilbert lifted her face with both
hands and looked into her eyes.
"Why did you apply to me for a
position as stenographer?" he asked
She returned the look quietly as one
who had told the worst and no longer
"I saw in the papers that you had
charge of the case, and I wanted to be
where I would know the minute you
found out anything. I could not bear
to expect to see my name in any paper

was too dreadful."
Gilbert sat on the edge of his desk
and reviewed the circumstances rap
"No-there's too much circumstan
tial evidence-you would perhaps be
acquitted, but there would always be
people who remembered-and who
doubted," he said. "Mary, will you put
the affair in my hands entirely and
let me manage it as I think best?"
Her face suddenly relaxed into re
"I could not find more capable

At the end of 30 days Gilbert re

"You can mark me down one fail

chalantly. "I'm tired of the bloomiing
thing. I'll acknowledge that I haven't
been able to give it my undivided at

Gen. Silverton you know."
The chief raised his spectacles
above his shaggy eyebrows.
"Confound it, Gilbert, I thought you
had more sense than the rest of 'em!
But there are times when no man has
the use of his brains."
He rose and put his hand on the
younger man's shoulder.

luck! I shan't expect anything-er

PASSING OF A NOTABLE CAPITAL FIGURE.
In the death of Col. Isaac R. Hill, known for gr
generations back as "ike Hill, of Ohio," the house
of representatives has lost its most unique char
acter. Col. Hill had been a unique figure in
national and Ohio politics for two decades. Al
ways a stanch Democrat, he associated himself
actively with its party history, more especially
in his home state. For years his peculiar per
sonalty of form and vernacular have impressed
the delegates to nearly every party convention, 0,
both national and state. He came to Washington ' l
originally when John G. Thompson, of Columbus, ,
was made sergeant-at-arms of the house of rep

capacity to the lower branch of congress ever
Many are the stories that have been printed
about "Ike" Hill. In fact, so constantly has he
been in the public eye that there are really few
good ones that remain untold.
In conversation Hill was as picturesque in the use of language as he was
dignified in dress and carriage. He was original and quaint in his remarks,
as witness the expression, "mark my words, young fellow, before next grass,"
etc., when he meant to say something would occur before springtime.
A new preacher had come to Newark at the time Col. Hill was a candi
date before a primary and the colonel never tired of telling how he made
the acquaintance of the gentleman of the cloth. "I was walking down to the
polls," he said, "when I came up to this stranger. He says to me: 'Good

duty to interest myself in the political affairs of the oommunity in which
my lines have been cast. I am the new minister of (naming the church) and
am on my way to the primaries. I understand there is a candidate named
Ike Hill, who is unregenerate, a gambler, liberal in every sense, and in every
way unfitted to receive the suffrages of a sovereign people. What do you
know about him?'
"I didn't waste no words, but said to this immaculate gentleman: 'Sir,
I am the identical son of a pirate,' or words to that effect."
For years no political convention in Licking county or in Newark was
complete without Hill. He took a hand in state politics, too, and was for
years state central committeeman in the Seventeenth Ohio district for the
Though Col. Hill from the age of 20 was always in politics, yet he never
ran for office but once, and then he failed. This was away back in the early
'70s, in Licking county, when there were ten candidates for the office of
county sheriff. "Ike" Hill stood next to the top of the list, but was beaten by
Ed Williams. He made a vow then never to "run" for another office, and
he kept it.

WHAT WE OWE TO INSECTS.
They Are of the Greatest Benefit to
Prof. Darwin said that if it had not
been for insects we should never have
had any more imposing or attractive
flowers than those of the elm, the hop
and the nettle. Lord Avebury com
pares the work of the insect to that of
the florist. He considers that just as
the florist has by selection produced
the elegant blossoms of the garden, so
the insects, by selecting the largest
and brightest blossoms for fertiliza
tion, have produced the gay flowers of
the field. Prof. Plateau, of Ghent, has
carried out a series of remarkable ex
periments on the ways of insects visit
ing flowers. He considers that they
are guided by scent rather than by
color, and in the connection he is at
variance with certain British natural
ists. Whatever may be the attraction
in flowers to insects-as yet, it ap
pears undefined-it is certain that the
latter visit freely all blossoms alike,
making no distinction between the
large, bright-colored ones and the less
conspicuous blossoms like those of the
currants, the lime, the planetree, the
nettle and the willow.
