Archie Norton was a happy man
that evening, lie was paying bis last
visit to Mm inn Gilbert, who was to
become Marian Norton to-morrow.
V- tin- two sol together in the twi
light, murmuring dc'.icibuswords of
joy and hope, they were interrupted
by the entrance of a servant with the
announcement that two gentlemen
wished to see Mr. Norton immediately.
'Tell them they must, wait till an
other lime,' - said Archie; 'that I am
particularly engaged at present.'
'int I was to say, sir, if you please
that the business is very pressing, .mil
(liey must s<e you.'
i With itti impatient gesture Archie
' followed the servant into the passage,
where be found himself confronted by
two roiili looking men.
*y r. Norton, I suppose?' one of
thefii accosted him.
Archie bowed assent,adding with a
I 'euch of hmighti/ess. a request to be
informed of tlie object til their visit.
I 'It's along n' that missing money,'
p plied the man, curtly.
It is necessary to explain thait a
picket of bank notes, lirough' by a
depositor n few diiys before to the
hitlik in which A richie Norton was a
clerk, had disappeared mysteriously
(Vom the receiving teller's desk, tind
though tb.e most tborough search had
hrcn made, no trace was found of the
Suspicion pointed naturally In some
of the employees, hut fastened upon
no particular one. All 'bat could be
done under the circumstances was to
procure a complete description of the
miles from the depositor, who, fortun
ately, bad preserved a memorandum
of their denoniuations and numbers,
j and to keep strict watch through all
available chsnncls, with a view to
discovering by whom any of them
might he put in circulation.
'The missing money !' exclaimed
Archie; 'has tiny clew been gained ol
'There has,' the man answered,'and
you're wanted right away.'
Archie had been among the most
I active in efforts to; solve the mystery,
and expressed his readiness to ac
company his visitors at once, and
render all the aid in bis power, ask
ing them to wait (ill he should step in
j and excuse his absence.
'Quite impossible,' said the spokes
man of the two, in a low dogged tone-,
I at die same time placing bis band on
Archie's arm and loading him out of
onr-shot; 'Can't stiller you out of our
sight, you sec.'
?Can't Slider me out of your sight V
'A' ; secin' as you're our prison -r.'
\ 'Your?your prisoner!' the young
man gasped, stupefied with amaze
'Yes; anil unless you want to make
ii scene,' rejoined tic other, 'the best,
thing you can do is to come along
'Hut what is the charge ?'disked
Archie; 'surely 1 am no! suspected'?
'Wo don't suspect, uothin',' inter

I Seeing further parley was useless,
with what composure he could com

vnut explain to Miss Gilbert that
urgent business called him away sud
denly, accompanied his custodians in
At the polico oflicc he learned that
ti note which he had paid out that
evening Htul been identified as one of
(lio.se stolen from the bank, which
fact Jotl to lii? present arrest.
A search was then made of the
prisoner, in whose pockctbook was
fmimi :v number of bank notes, every
one. of which Mas ployed,by itsnnm
her and other distinctive features, to
belong tt) the missing packet.
At this revelation Archie Norton
stood overwhelmed and speechless.
The stunning force with which the
blow hail fallen bereft him of all
power to make an explanation, if,
indeed, he had any to offer.
Next morning I received a sum
in oils from the prisoner, with wIidui I
I)ad been on terms of friendly inter
course, and one of whose wedding
guests I was to he. I found him in his
ce ], iii n half-dazed, bewildered slate.
'Surely,' I said, 'yon must be able
to account for your possession 6f the
notes found upon you.'
'Certain!} I am,' he answered;'I
got lhem yesterday from my uncle's
executor, Mr. Gordon, in payment of
a legacy. 1 was too much confused
last night lo mention thai.'
'Mr. Gordon is a very methodical
man of business,' I replied, 'and may
lie able to identify the notes he paid
you. In that case the ri (lair will be
easily cleared tip; for no one will sus
pect Mr. Gordon, ami it he remembers
from whom he received the notes, not
only wi 1 your innocence be establish
od, but a clew may be gained to the
discovery of the real culprit.'
'Jiy-ihe-way,' 1 added, 'in whose
company were you yesterday after re
eeiving the money from Mr. Gordon?'
'In Ilalph Cray son's,' he answered.
^Indeed !' I said, a little astonished;
for linlph Grayson, n fellow clerk of
Archie's, had been his rival aspirant
to the hand of Marion Gilbert, and
their relations had been far from
friendly. 'Then you and he have be
come reconciled V
'Oh, yes.' he replied: 'lie came home
with nie yesterday, aiid remained till
I started on my visit to Mari in.'
'Where was your pockctbook mean
?Wliy, in niy p >ckct, of course,' said
Archie, looking astonished at the
'All the lime?' I continued.
'AH the time,' he answered?'that is,
all except a few minutes that I was in
my bedroom changing my dress. I
had taken out niy pockctbook just be
fore to consult a paper, and laid it on
niy sitting-room table.'
'And Grayson was in the sitting
'(Vrtniiily, but why do you ask ?
You do not think, surely'?
T think nothing at present,' I re
plied; and encouraging my friend to
hope for the best, took my leave.
My first step w. s to ascertain the
numbers and description of the notes
found in Archie's possession; the next
to call on Mr. Gordon.
'You paid Mr. Norton some money
yesterday,' I began.
?J did' was the answer.
'Did you keep a memorandum of
the numbers and denominations of t lie
'Ii is my invariable custom.'said
Mr. Gordon, 'and I followed it in this
'Then you will be able to tell
whether this is a correct list and des
criplioh of I hem,' I continued, hand
ing Mr. Gordon a memorandum of
the notes found on Archie
After consulting his book, he shook
'No; these arc not the notes.'
My Ii ist hope was dashed, but I
had still another.
'Will you suffer me to taken copy
of the description of the notes you did
pay Mr. Norton ?' 1 asked.
Tho permission was given and the
Now for hope number two.
That evening found me in social
companionship with Ralph Grayson.
We had not been intimate hitherto;
for Ilalph was of a disposition too
secretive anil selfish to admit of much
coidiality between us. For once, how
ever, we got along fnRioosly, Ralph
was in gleeful mood, notwithstanding
his friend's trouble.
'Poor Archie !' lie saiilj 'it's a very
ugly'case they have against him.'
'Very ugly," I assented,
'I'm afraid lie's guilty,' continued
'Jt certainly looks so at present,'I
answered. 'By-the-way,' I added, care
lessly, 'could you oblige me with
change for a twenty-dollar bill, Mr.
Mr. I Grayson could and did, in the
shape of four lives. I excused myself
to my companion, mil look my leave
as soon as I could without rudeness.
On examining the four bills rcceiv
cd from Giayson, I found them to
correspond exactly with four of those
described in ?fr. Gordon's mcmornu
dum of the notes paid to Archie.
"Hope number two was realized, and
the problem solved !
I bad previously learned from
Archie that he had paid out no mon
ey between the lime of receiving the
sum from Mr. Gordon, and that at
which he separated from Grayson;
am' that the note which led to bis ar
rest, he hud paid at a jeweler's, w hile
on bis way to visit Marian, for a ring
which was Co figure in the coining
ceremony. It was clear now that
Ralph Grayson bail embraced the op
port unity offered him of replacing the
contents of Archie's pockctbook with
an equal amount of the stolen money,
without reflecting that means might
exist of tracing and identifying the

These u-cful birds increase in value
with each new d .?vebeeu.m' of t'i M r
usefulness. 'I lib latest application of
the 'homing' faculty, as it is.called,
of this bird, is the establishment of
communication between lightships and
the shore, at times when it is imposs
ible to convey intelligence by any
other method. The maratin.e code
of signals is taken advantage of, and
two or three letters arc stamped on
the wing, intimating the nature of the
assistance required. The bird is then
let loose, ami makes its way to its
haunts on shore. By this means many
a shipwrecked mariner may be saved
from denth. In a great many cases a
'pigeon service' might be made to
supcrccdc the electric telegraph. This
would blithe reviving the practice id'
the great stockbrokers at the begin
ning of the century. During the war,
relays of pigeons were kept all along
the road from Paris to London, so
that these [speculative gentlemen ob
tained the earliest news of the course
of events. The carrier-pigeon came
into special prominence ditri g the
late, seigc of Paris; letters, photograph
ed on the minutest scale, were carried
to and fro by i's means. The Pros
si ins could m>t intercept tho bilds,
and ended by adopting the system
themselves. At the ptcsent time every
fortress and for tided town in Ger
many is provided with flocks of train
ed pigeons, by which means communi
lions could he seist itito town, if in
vaded by a hostile force.
On lit in of Indian Namkb ?The
.Sioux Indians name their pappooses
after events transpiring at the time of
their birth. As illustrative of this
peculiar trait, Red Cloud is known to
have taken that name from the fact
that the western sky wns over spread
with red clouds at the moment of tho
birth, while the bringing of a captive
horso with a spotted tail gave the tow
great chief the singular cognomen of
Spotted Tail. Sitting Bull received
his name because, a buffalo was, by a

of a fractious pony furnished a name
