Now that it has been ascertained that

is the genuine Asint it; article, from which
tho worst is to be 1 eared should its march

But more than fotty years whatis'known

THE " SLEUTH JIOVJfD."
The Detective's IMagonls of the Hub
About two years ago Mr. Azariah
Boody, of Newark, X. J., an enormously
rich retired plumber, on returning from
Home, where lie had beeu to select a really
good cash article of title for himself,
was astonished to find the front door of
his splendid residence standing open, although
ho had closed it securely upon
his departure. Proceeding further, he at
once perceived by the empty wine bottles
and costly viands scattered over tho
magnificent s itin furnltuto that the house
had been burglarized in his absepce. (It
seems strange that burglars should always
scatter costly vian Is about when
they rob a place, but according to tho
papers they will do it.) A ponderous
hair trunk, in which ho kept his valuable?,
had been opened and a set of
and a $1,000,000 packaco of 4 per
cents removed. It was impossible to toll
exactly when tho robbery occurred, but
tho excited millionajro at once started
for tho office of tho ' Perfect of Police,"
as they say in all tho French plays.
" On tho steps of tho office ho encountered
a keen-looking man. with tho eairlo
noso and hawk-eye peculiar to detectives
who inquired if ho wished to eeo tho
" Immediately," said tho millionaire.
" Ho is in Now York," replied tho man
on tho stops, " but if it is anything of
importance I will attend to it in his
' I have been robbed," said the victim.
"I knew it," said tho police attache,
with the true promptness of the profession.
" Let us nt onco to the spot."
The plumber led his way to tho house.
44 1 trust nothing has been moved since
tho crime was discovered," said tho defective,
as they entered tho house.
" Absolutely nothing," said tho old
gentleman, who had read GaboriauVM.
Lecocq " f ri 11 r ti in es. "
" Because," said tho detective " much
depends on a careful study of tho surroundings,"
and ho began 'his investigations
by moipurinc a square inch of tho
dust covered lid of the trunk. Ho then
produced a small pair of scales, and,
scraping off tho inch of dust referred to,
caro'ully weighed tho same.
"Let 'me see," ho muttered, making a
calculation, " dust settles nt the rate of
of an inch per hour. It is
therefore certain that tho burglary was
committed last Thursday at a quarter
pan one n. in."
" Dear me," snil tho old centleman.
" how wonderful 1"
Tho detective now approached tho re
mains of tho robbers' repast. "Theroi
werMlneo robbers, he said. I
'' Yes, but here are four classes used."
exclaimed the old gentleman. '
' the fourth was merelv used to nour
the corky top of tho bottles into, ex
plained the detective, who unye Iris name
as iyicksiiuw. - 1
"One of them was a powerful man of .
advanced aire. See, this bitten cracker
wears the tn.irks of six decayed teeth.
Tho second was a dandy with a long
mustache, for you can see hero ho has
repeatedly wiped it on this napkin. Tho
thirvj was unmistakably a woman."
"A woman !" misped the house-owner.
"Precisely. You see she has eaten
nothing save pickles and tho icing from
this c ike. In" her nervousness sho has
upset the salt and spilled her wine on
the cloth. It was her first affair of the
"Yes I seo." snid tho old Booth
"And a pretty woman as well." went
on the detective. "You pee sho has
brushed the dust from every mirror in
the room to look nt herself. Next, wo
find that thoy divided tho plunder on
the spot. Look ! Were not these broken
tapes the ones with which your
bond pucknge was tied ?"
" Thev are."
' During the division they quarreled."
"But how do you know that," said
"By this overturned chair. Besides,
the piano is open, and mirks ' of fingers
are on the bass keys. Women always
sit down and thump on that end of the
piano when angrv."
"Even when burgling?" said the old
"At all times,'' replied Kickshaw. "It
nukes no difference whatever. Tho woman
had red hair."
"Yes; sho threw that book in the
corner nt the old. man. and made his
11 e bl'id. Seo this towel stained with
blood ? No one but a red-haired woman
would have done that."
" How do you know it was tho old
, ' replied the defective, using
a micros ope, "tie blond globules aio
of an elderly m m."
"I suppose they did not remain hereabouts
long " queried the plumber.
"No; tiiey left the next morning for

said the old party ; " are you a
" It is very simple," said the human
'On crumpled scrap of paper you
will see some figures. Of course, "the
thieves could not realize on tho bonds at
once. They, therefore, made a computation
to discover just how far their immediate
cash would take them. Chicago
was the result, as tho total arrived at is
the faro to that city multiplied by three."
" I seo I see." "said the plumber.
" I start for Chicago on the next train,"
continued the thief-taker. " Let me see,
perhaps you bad better let mo have S50U
Tho other instantly passed over the
" Remember," said tho detective, as
ho departed, " not a word of what we
have discovered, keep perfectly quiet
until yon hear from me."
And to this dav th e defrauded plumber
is sitting on his front steps waiting
for news from tho detective (who was
nothing more than the robber himself).

along to the top of tho ladder.
