Coal Oil Billy started to his feet, and '

face, aud grappled with him at the '

He drew his pistol and tired. The
firm hold relaxed with a groan. Baker .
fell heavily across the lied, and John

In his own room he washed thejblood (

I'he Jewish diamond merchant shot I
him a keen glance from the black eyes '
under his white eyebrows, and' carried '
the diamond to the light '
He returned with it in a momem
and placed it at his elbow.
"Bah!" he said, "you take me for a
fool? That is an imitation, not the
best cither." ,
"You have changed the stone," ex
claimed the thief. "I have others like
