were the headlines In n Paris paper.
In following up this extraordinary
case the mystery deepened, unheard of
crimes were unearthed and thrilling
situations occurred which baffled even
the celebrated detective, Lecoq. It ap
peared that upon opening the safe one
morning, the cashier startled the
clerks by crying out: "I hnve been
robbed 1" They gathered about, but
strangely enough upon Inspection, the
Bafe showed only a scrntch, but no
sign of having been broken open, al
though the 350,000 francs were miss

there the day before, In order to pay
Count Louis de Clameran, a friend
who had been left a legacy by his
brother, Gaston. M. Fnuvel, the presi
dent of the bank, and M. Prosper Ber
tomy, the cashier, were the only per
sons who possessed keys to the door
and were credited with the knowledge
iof a word which made up the combina
tion. Although their relations had
been like those of father and son, each
now accused the other of taking the
The clerks were interviewed by, the
police, and search wns made of the
apartment over the bank, occupied by
the president, his wife, and beautiful
niece, Madeleine, whose engagement
to the cnsuler had been mysteriously
broken off It was suspected she pre
ferred Mme. Valentine Fauvel's hand
some nephew, Rnoul Lagors. The
president's record was good, but sus
picion was directed toward the cashier,
as he had been living extravagantly.
His arrest followed, although he pro
tested his Innocence. During the ln
' spoctlon of the bank and the appre
hending of the cashier, he wns seen
tb scribble a line hurriedly and throw
It to the clerk. The latter wns shad
owed to the cashier's apartment and
the note procured. It was addressed
to Mine. Gypsy, Informing her of his
arrest and advising her to hide. Dur
ing the examination at court, Prosper
remembered that he had been Indis
creet the previous night in saying to
Gypsy, when perhaps he might have
been overheard by the count and
Rnoul, that he had reason for con
stantly thinking of her at his work,
when she accused him of not thinking
of her any longer. The word Gypsy
opened the safe. For lack of sufficient
evidence Prosper was released and the
case filed in No. 113.
On Prosper's return to his apart
ment, Gypsy had gone, but a note ad
dressed In small printed letters was
delivered to him containing money,
The clever Lecoq, now living with
Prosper, under the disguise of nn old
friend of his fnther's, revealed that
the printed letters had been cut from
n prayer book. Surely there was a
woman In the ense! Later a torn
prayer book was discovered hidden In
Madeleine's room. Did she love Pros
per nnd think hlra Innocent nnd In
need of money! Yet soon after that,
to the surprise of everyone, her
engagement was announced to the
old Count de Clameran. The rea
son for this was that Madeleine,
by chance, overheard n conversa
tion between the count nnd her
aunt. The old count threatened to tell
of tho family skeleton If she did not
consent to the .marriage. Madeleine
appeared and said she would marry
him to keep the secret and the honor
of the family name. On lenrnlng of
Madeleine's engagement, Prosper, who
really had always loved her, became
very angry, andthlnklng there must
be a sinister motive for Mme. Fauvel's

to M. Fauvel, telling him to watch his
Lecoq noticed that the good-looking
Itaoul still continued his frequent vis

was perhaps not the nephew, but the
lover of Mme. Fauvel? Disguised, the
great detective attended a masquerade
Z,n and made Insinuating remarks to
Mme. Fauvel concerning Itaoul which
caused her to faint, nm3vhen he spoke
of money mutters, Count Louis turned
pnle. Returning home that night tho
detective wns followed by two men
and 'stabbed, but, fortunately, not
killed. Lecoq, thinking ho recognized
the count nnd Rnoul, decided thnt
they realized that the police suspected
them of robbing the bank, nnd also
Hint there must he an even greater
mystery to unravel that hod caused
them to become would-be assassins.
Records were looked up and an amaz
ing story came to light.
Lecoq discovered that years ago
Mme. Fnuvel, then Valentine de rer
berle, hod been engaged to the count's
brother, Gaston. In defending her
name nt n country Inn, Gaston hnd
killed a man and fled to America, al
though he was thought to hove been
drowned while escaping. A son was
born to Valentine and given nway by
her mother. Later she hod married
Fnuvel, who was told nothing.
The story wns never unearthed un
til Count Louis had nqtinnderctl the
fnmlly money nnd by mere chance hnd
heard of the child's existence from an
old nurse. He made Inquiries. Not
long after this, tho count Introduced n
young mun to Mme. Fnuvel as her son,
to serve his own ends nnd to extract
hush-money. This young man wns
called her nephew nnd proved to be

turned to Paris rich.
Madeleine seemed to wish to delay
her mnrrlnge. The count feared she
still loved Prosper, so he promised
Rnoul a lnrge sum If he would In some
wny ruin the cashier's reputation,
thinking thus to hasten his own mur
rlnco, ns he really was In love with
Madeleine. The moment came when
Rnoul overheard Prosper telling Gypsy
he constantly thought of hei at the
bank. lie then went to his mother
nnd said he would shoot himself If he
did not have a large sum of money
thnt very night to pay a gambling
debt. She got for him the key to the
safe. The poor lady had already given
him nil her money and jewels nnd had
nothing left to bestow. At the last
moment she tried to stop him, hence
the scratch that was discovered later.
When she Inquired how ho knew the
word that mode up the combination,
Rnoul sold that Prosper had given It
to him nnd they were to divide the
money between themselves.
Owing to the anonymous letter, M.
Fnuvel Intercepted his wife's mnll, and
one day found a letter from Raoul ask
ing her to go to his villa. M. Fauvel
followed, and on entering and seeing
his wife In the arms of the young man,
pulled out his pistol to shoot, but for
tunately It did not go off, as Gypsy,
who had become Madeleine's mold, un
der Lccoq's Instructions In order to
watch the house, had taken out the
bullets. At this point the great detec
tive appeared and told the banker the
whole story. He thendemnnded the
3.r)0,000 francs which had been stolen
nnd Raoul returned the money; and
wnnt was more remarkable still, Lecoq
showed them papers that proved
Rnoul wns not Mme. Fauvel's son
after all her son had died and the
Impostor wns the s6n of a Jockey hired
by the 'count to play the part so as to
secure money from Mme. Fauvel at
the time when the count was poor,
before Gaston hod died.
During the conversation Rnoul had
made his escape, but no one cared, for
the Fauvels naturally wjshed to keep
the story secret, and It ended happily
for M. Fauvel forgave his wife her
early Indiscretions. Lecoq was Just
about to arrest the count for his many
crimes when the wicked old man went
Insane nnd kept repenting constantly
thnt his brother Gnston wns poisoning
him. Strange to relate, the great Le
coq married pretty Mme. Gypsy, whom
he had known nnd loved for yenrs.
Prosper, of course, married Madeleine,
nnd M. Fauvel retired from the bank.
