He returned to his hotel and hap

In a moment the enigma was solved.
The piece of jewelry he had seen was
the peculiar pendant that his fair sitter
Iad been so anxious he should include
in his portrait.
He hurried off to the chief of police,
and told that worthy what he suspect

the English lady. Inquiries were at

PAINTINGS THAT HAVE DONE THE
}WORK OF DETECTIVES. -
Instanees Where the Canvals of an
Artist Has Led to the Confession et
a Crimina3-A Portrait and a stolen
An artis who had suddenly become
almost famous by his production of a
painting exhibited at the Royal acad
emy was one day called upon by a
man whose visit was productive of the
most extraordinary and undreamt of
' The picture represented a lonely
stretch of beach, upon which the sea
Swas beating in long, creamy roilers. In
the foreground, bending over a dead
body, was a man with a wild expres
[ slon on his face and with a naked
,knife in his hand. A ship's boat, evi
a dently just beached, was also in the
ipicture, and by the side of the mur
dered man was abag of gold. The pic
ture portrayed the advent of two cast
aways upon a friendly shore. The one
'had murdered the other so that the
treasure might be his.
The painter's visitor was a gray hair
ed, wild eyed man. - .
"In heaven's name, sir," he gasped
out, "how did you learn the dreadful
story that you painted? I see you know
all. I murdered my mate Bill to get
the money that was his. I threw his
body into the sea. I don't know what
impulse led me to the Academy. The
first thing I saw was your picture rep
Iresenting the scene that tock place 80
Needless to say, the picture had been
the outcome of imagination. Yet mur
der will out, and the guilty conscience
of the man who had killed his comrade
for lust of gold had convinced him that
the painting was no coincidence, but
was indeed the actual portrayal of a
dastardly and unwitnessed crime.
There is probably no picture better
known in England than "The Doctor."
tby Mdr. Luke F'ildes, yet there are prob
ably very few people aware of the fact
thai, that selfsame masterpiece was
the means of bringing to light the per
petration of a crime that would other
wise never have been known.
A certain doctor in a large town com
mitted suicide, and among his paepers
was a letter which ran as follows: "I
have today seen Luke Fildes' 'Doctor.'
The picture represents a medical man
-watching by the bedside of a child. It
has so haunted me that I am going to
take away my own worthless life and
make a confession at the same time.
When Arthur's"-his brother's--"boy
died, I came into money that my dead
brother had settled on him. He died
as all the world thought of acute pneu
monia. Yet his life might have been
Ssaved had I acted, as Flldes''Doctor' is
so evidently doing, with the use of all
Sthe skill that lay in my power. I bas
tened the boy's end and so got the
money. I can bear it no more."
A well known artist was commison
ed to paint the portrait of a lady in ex
slted circles, who boasted the pos-ses
Ssion of a most unique jewel in the
form of a pendant. The lady was very
anxious that this heirloom should be
included in her portrait The artist. of
rcourse, complied with her request
Shortly after the painting had been
Scompleted a daring burglary was per
Spetrated, with the result that the lady
r lost her heirloom, and no trace of the

Fields of Salt.
At Salton, in southern California, ex

00 feet below sea leveL. About 1,000
Leres of the depressed area are cov
bred with a deposit of salt, which C. F.
loden describes in The Scientific
Linerican as one of the sights of Call
ornia. The salt is first thrown into
idges by a peculiarly shaped plow,
Irawn by a dummy engine with ca
>les, and then is piled into conical
eaps before being carried to the dry
ng house and crushing mill.' The ex
anse looks like a field of snow. About
1,000 tons of salt are removed each
rear, but the supply is perennially re

emperature of the air reaches 150 de
