By ALLAN G. LAMOND
A murder was committed In Naples,
Italy. Slgnor Lancaul, a single gcutle
nian living In apartments, was the vic
tim, and since he was well off and fond
of dlsPlaT ue uatl considerable Jowolry
ror a- man wuicu was taken. The po- in a gentle manner, indicating her bo
Hce learned of the missing articles so He that he should have more regard
far as they could bo determined and for uls senatorial dignity and drape his
gave a description of them to Gluseppl
Varilll, a member of the carablnlerl,
or national police, who was given the
case to make out of it what he could.
There was missing one gold chronom
eter watch, two gold chains, a number
of shirt studs and other articles of
similar choractor. Tho assassin and
robber in making his oxlt had dropped
a link sleeve button on tht floor. Thor I
make in Italy of pink coral exquisite
adornments, and this single sleeve but
ton was twin roses of tho most deli
cate carving, set in gold.
Varilll looked at It admiringly. "Who
ever has the mate to It," he sold, "will
scarcely be able to refrain from wear
ing it, so beautiful is it. If he had it
ns well as its mate, ho will surely be
tray himself on account of it." How
ever, the officer put it in his vest pocket
with tho vague expectation that It
might lead to a clew.
The murder had been committed at
an hour when n number of persons
were about, but no one could be found
who would admit that he had seen nny
one In tho building who did not belong
there at the time of the assassination.
Varilll, who knew the criminal side of
Naples well, assumed that this ret
icence Indicated that the murderer was
a member of the dreaded Camorra, and
if any one dared to peach upon him
he would do so at the risk of his life.
A year passed without the slightest
clew to the LaucnnI murder. Several
of the missing articles of Jewelry turn
ed up, but were always found on per
sons above suspicion. They were
ready to tell where they got them, but
either the person from whom they
were obtained or the next possessor be
yond could not remember Just how the
Jewel had come to him. But the sleeve
button was never regained. "It Is too
beautiful," said Varilll. "The rascal
will not part with It. He will not
wear It in his cuff, for he has no mate
for it. lie will not get a mate made,
for he cau only secure one from a skill
ed carver, such as made the one he
has. Were I in his nlace I would have
Lrr twonT wou,d not
tur n it Into a scarfpin for one rose
would do for that, and I could not use
the other rose. Yes, that is the only
thing to do with It, and if the assassin
wears it he will do so as a couple of
shirt studs. He will wear a necktie
and not a scarf, because the scarf
would hide it. My theory rests on the
idea that his vanity will get the better
of his caution."
One daF VarllU's chief started him
to London, where news had been re
ceived that a certain bandit, who had
murdered a traveler on the road be
tween Sorrento and Amalfl who could
not or would not furnish a ransom, was
living apparently in a well to do con
dition. On his arrival in London Vn
rllll sought the Italian quarter, but his
quarry, passing under the name of
Scalpo, was not to be found there.
Varilll spent a couple of months at
cjvo iiuui umier tmh rim nr nie imt
"Don't disturb yourself," said Varilll.
"I think I have seen you in Berlin.
Aro you not Herr Berhoff, a brewer?"
"I have neva been in Berlin in ma
life," said the other, showing by his
speech that ho was an Italian, "and I
am not a brewer."
' umi . i ...
I xjiuu i nave Deen mistaken," said
Varl'' had desired to get closer
to the man and hear him speak. "Now
that I see those beautiful coral studs
Vnil nrnni. T fnlm It- r t,.i
v " I'mu ii juu uu uuui liaiv.
i have never seen such carving as that
excentin vni 'b ""i
except In Naples.'
At this tho man changed counte
nance, involuntarily drawing his coat
over his shirt front. Then he glanced
about him as if looking for nn exit.
"I am from Naples myself." Varilll
went on saying. "I know exactly
whore thoso studs camo from. There
la a shop In Naples facing the bay
where they are sold. I have a pair of
roses composing n link sleeve button"
Tho man glared and, rising, stood at
bay. Varilll put his hand in his vest
pocket, took out the sleovo button and
lield it up before the other.
"In a public music hall," he contln
ued, "In the center of London it will bo
impossible for you to escape. At the
slightest commotion policemen will
come. If you will go quietly with rao
thero need be no disturbance."
A wcok from that evening Varilll
delivered his prisoner, who turned out
to bo both the bandit he was after and
tho murderer of Lancanl, to the au
thorities nt Naples. Ho was condemn
ed to that which Is worse than death
notltary confinement for life.
THAT ARE TOLD
The Best That Borah Got.
Senator William E. Borah of Idaho
is one of the most democratic fellows
you ever saw, and ho goes around
Washington wearing a blue sack suit
and a felt hat, all of which leads Mrs.
Borah to give him numerous lectures
, 8wwa n in a i-rmee Albert coat,
not to mention pressing down upon his
belligerent brow a high silk hat. So
far, howovcr, tho senator has not In
creased tho sale of frock coats, but has
"1IT DEAR, YOU DON'T SEEM TO BE INTER
ESTED," SAID THE SENATOR.
enjoyed a wonderful degree of physlcul
comfort, the story of which he has fre
quently unfolded to Senator Gore, the
blind man from Oklahoma.
One evening Borah told his wife
that he had received a great compli
ment, the same being that he was the
best dressed man in the United States
senate. Mrs. Borah, sitting on the
other side of the reading table, made
no answer and conveyed the general
idea that the conversation had reached
a stage which bored her Immensely.
"My dear, you don't seem interested,"
said the senator, "and you don't ask me
who paid me the compliment."
"I am always Interested in every
thing you do and anything that hap-
x don.t havc to ask you who M'd yoo
about being so well dressed. I know
who it was. It was Senator Gore."

BY CHAMP CLARK
Episode In tiie Early Life of

People who meet Champ Clark for
the first time are under the Impression
that he is without knack for remember

Billy Mayhall, who runs the Bowling
Green Times in Piko county, Mo.,
found out about It many years ago.
Clark was practicing law. He had
his office over a drug store in the town,
nnd he slept In the rear room. His
daily walk took him in front of the
Bowling Green Times offlce. Day aft
er day Clark passed and day after day
Mayhall stood in the doorway. Nobody
When Clark began to run for ofilco
Mayhall told some friends he couldn't
be for him because Clark lived in the
same town and didn't know him.
About tho same time Clark went Into
Mnyhall's offlce, and, going up to the
case where the editor was "sticking"
type, ho said:
"Say, Billy, I'm afraid you've got
something against me. I've been pass
ing your offlce for a year now, and
you've never spoken to me."
The editor then realized that perhaps
the shoe was on the other foot. Sat
