Stole From Detective Who Was
A shrewd detective from the cen

sleuth- scraped an acquaintance. Over
the bar the acquaintance ripened, but
the detective failed to gain the in

Then he got a bright idea. He con

"Come into the cafe and have a

They parted at the door with a prom

went up Broadway. At Thirty-eighth
street he went into a drugstore for a
cigar. He lighted one, reached into
his pocket and threw down a bill on
the counter. With an exclamation
he grabbed the note and held it up
excitedly. Instead of a ten it was
a crisp one dollar silver certificate.
Across the end was writted this:

pretty girl. One of them was poor
and handsome, and the other was a
slow witted fellow, with considerable
money. The capitalistic one con

He offered hir'n $ioo to go away and'
stay away six months. The poor
young man said he would consider
the matter. And he did, in company
with the girl. They agreed to take
the money of the young man, get
married and go away together. The:
deal was completed. and the poor,
young man got his money and start

by the girl at the first station, where
he was married by a justice of the'
peace. The rich young man consult

no grounds for a suit: that the
young man had kept his agreement;
