The last speaker was a tall slightly-built
man, with, blanched hair closelv-cut, thin
cheeks cleanly shaven, and a long drooping
moustache, silvery-white. His small green
grey eyes gleamed angrily, like the "eyes of
an irritated cat, as he fixed tliem upon his

less, emotionless, unsympathetic You
might, a physiognomist would have said,
have moved such a man to hatred and long
enduring revenge, but never to love.
But Sir Richard Fordyce occupied no
magisterial or inquisitorial office: at least,
such a description could not have justly de
scribed the various important duties per
formed by him as head of one of Her Ma
jesty's highest government offices.
The house in which the dialogue took
place was Sir Richard's, an old-fashioned
red-brick mansion close to the banks of the
Thames at Fulham, and the scene enacting
one of a strange and horrible real life
drama, with the curiously complicated plot
of which we shall have now, if it please
you, to deal.
"What rt'iison should there be for conceal
meI)t?', repeated Sir Richard angrily, stamp
ing bis foot.
"No exact reason that I know of," replied
Mr. Cutlibert Craven, his secretary, "ex
cept that, as a rule, I have always been led
to understand these enquiries, when placed
in the hands of an ordinary police-ofticer,
are conducted with so much unnecessary

thief, ami the restoration of my poverty, I
see no reason to object to it."
"It is only for you to say; I await your in
"You have them. Send for the police."
"Certainly," replied the secretary with a
slight bow, and moving towards the door,
whilst Sir Richard, turning his back upon
him, rested his foot upon the fender, nd
drummed with his long thin fingers impa
tiently upon the mantelpiece.
Before Mr. Craven had had time to gently
close the door behind him, he was called
"These fellows are clumsy, are they?
Make a great fuss? Upset one? Turn one's
house topsy-turvy? Is that what you mean?"
"I have known several cases of their do
ing so," replied Craven; "and that is not
"Indeed ! What else do they do?''
"The code of the ordinary blundering
police-official," said Mr. Craven, after care
fully closing the door behind him, "is not
that of the rest of humanity. With him any
and ever)" one is guilty until proved to be
innocent not that all are innocent until
proved to be guilty. The first duty of In
spector HanfctofT, when called in to make
an enquiry, is to find a clue. This must be
done, and must be done without delay that
is a tine qua Hon. Anything Jooking like
a clue is therefore greedily seraed upon and
adhered to, in spite of all outside sugges
tion, and in the meanwhile the real culprit,
seeing the turn things have taken, has
plenty of leisure to clear away any traces of
the deed he may. In the hurry of the mo
ment, have overlooked."
"You da not appear to have a high opinion
of the police," said Sir Richard, who still
stood with his back turned towards his com
panion. "1 have very little personal knowledge of

other t talk, had been steaiifuHtiv va,t
Reflected there, he could see distinctly
every movement of the other's face lit the
brighter background, whilst the features of
bis own were veiled by shadow. At th
word "diamond" his half-closed eyes open
ed suddenly with a startled glare, and ha
repeated the word lu a loud sharp tone, yet
. "1 beg pardon, sir," said the secretary;
"my mind was, at the moment, running on
the diamond you had lost. In the case of
the person I was speaking of, it was a ruby
bracelet, belonging to gome lady between
-whom and the prosecutor there existed ait
intrigue that was, in fact, why he pre
varicated with the police."
The other made no reply, but slowly the
cold grey shade crept back to his face, from
which a transient flash of color had banish
at It while ago, and his eyes half-closed
' ajfain as titer were usually.
The secretary seemed to be respectfully
awaiting his commands. A light-haired,
strongly-built, good-looking young fellow

be found with him, rather too heavy a jaw,
and too thick a throat One would have ex
pected him to have been found more profi
cient in athletic sports in the huntlngfield,
on the river than in the duties of a private
secretary, but Sir Richard, but little given
to praise, had pronounced him "Invaluable."
"I am at your orders," said Craven after a
pause. "Shall 1 go to the local poiice-omcer

"I am the best judge of that, perhaps. No,
thank you, Mr. Craven, 1 will go by myself."
"Shall 1 find vou the address, sir? Oh,
here they are."
"Give It to me."
Sir Richard took it from his hand, and
cast his eyes over the column the secretary
had pointed out, then was about to fold the
paper up, and put It in his pocket, when
"I be? pardon, sir. That is the copy of
the Timet that you usually file. Oddly
enough there does not appear to be any oth
er paper in the room. But it you will select
any particular man I suppose they are all
about alike I will write his address down
in a moment"
"Take the first. What does he say?"
Craven read aloud:
'"GnippEB's Secket Investigation Of

"MK. GI1IITER RAISED HIS EYEBROWS."
At the date or tuts story twelve years
ago you had, did you wish to find it at all,
to go in search of No. L Charing Cross,
through an iron gate and up a narrow pass
age. Had you furthermore desired to hold
communion with Mr. Gripper, a dimly-light
ed winding staircase lay before you, and in
the gloom of a dark wauscoted apartment
on the second floor, behind a darker office
through which you had first to pass, Grip
per seemingly lay in wait at any hour pre
pared for cousultation.
Prevalent as crime is in this great city, it
need have been still further increased, one
may charitably suppose to have crowded
Mr. Grlppsr's staircase with his clients pass
ing to and fro. . At any rate, by some chance
no client of Mr. Gripper's ever met another
client or saw other living souls within the
building but Gripper himself, a thin wiry
old man who acted as his clerk, and a tall
bulky individual with whom we shall pres
ently have to deal
The occasion of Sir Richard's visit was no
exception to the rule.
The baronet sent In his card. Mr. Gripper
was for the" moment engaged, but would see
Sir Richard immediately. Sir Richard watt
ed a minute or two, then was summoned to
"I have come to consult you respecting a
loss I have sustained," said Sir Richard. "A
diamond, weighing four carats and valued
at one hundred and fifty pounds, has, I have
reason to believe, been stolen from an iron
safe in my study. Instead of going directly
to the proper I should say, the police au
thorities, I have come to you."
Mr. Gripper, with the faintest possible
smile, bowed his head, patted the back of
one hand with the other, and said:
"lou had possibly reasons for wishing
in the first instance that the case should be
privately conducted 1 Will you permit me
to ring the bell? Thank you. This is Mr.
Greengraves, the most trustworthy of the
officers I employ. It is most fortunate that
he is here at this very moment You will

"Thank you." replied Mr. Greenzraves.
without waiting for the concession reuuest-
ed, "I can listen better standing."
Sir Richard, knitting his brows, regarded
the speaker for a moment fixedly. He was
the burly man before alluded to. sandv-
haired, broad-shouldered, with larze hands
and feet About his face there was nothine
remarkable. He bad a pug nose and a wide
mouth. He might hare been as cunning as
a fox, or as stupid as a pig, for what you
could Judge of his character from his physi
ognomy. Mr uichard quickly concluded
that he must wait and see before he himself
could decide, and went on with ills story.
To use as few words as nossible." said
Sir Richard, "I placed this diamond in my
safe It is a patent safe and closes with a
spnng-yestrday afternoon before going
down to the House of Commons. I dined
at trie House, and remained, either listening

Gripper made a list of the Inmates of the
house from the Information he bad received.
Greengraves, meanwhile, standing by
thoughtfully feeling the outline of his own
chin, an occupation from which he now
desisted to stretch forth his hand and pos
sess himself of a small thick volume lying
on the chiefs desk. Turning the leaves of
this leisurely, he found a page, and hand
ing book back, pointed with his finger to a
paragraph, under certain words of which he
drew a line with his thumb-nail.
Gripper looked at it with seeming care
lessness, and read aloud the list he had writ
"I have omitted no one, I presume?" said
he inquiringly. "Her ladyship, I presume
"I should have mentioned Lady Fordyce
first," said Sir Richard.
One might almost have fancied that the
discovery of so odd a blunder would have
raised a faint smile to the lips of the most
solemnly obtuse. It raised instead, for
moment, a slight flush to Sir Richard's
cheek, and an angry gleam in his eyes, of
which Greengraves took mental note.
"Of course," said Gripper, "when you
speak of its being impossible that any one
could have had access to the key, you did
not include her ladyship?" -
"Yes, 1 did," said Sir Richard curtly.
Mr. Gripper raised his eyebrows.
"Indeed?" said he.

and the momentary light in the eyes.
"l ou could recognise it again, of course,
"Yes, I suppose; though you are not like
ly to find another diamond in the course of
your researches," he answered quickly.
"No, no; not likely," replied Greengraves
dreamily. "I was thinking it might fall in
to the hands of a receiver, in which case it
might get mixed up with others. However,
you would know it or her ladyship would."
l et once again the flush and angry gleam.
"It will be better for me at once to tell
you," said Sir Richard, "that her ladyship
is ignorant of its existence or its loss, or of
my having come to you. I trust that it may
not be found necessary to hold any com
munication with her upon the subject"
"In all probability it will not said Grip
er; "and even in such a case. Sir Richard,
Mr. Greengraves would not venture to move
in the matter without first consulting you."
"Is that all you have to ask me? '
"At present, everything.
"Would you kindi y write on the back of

it to him: 'Let bearer await my return.'

"If you can call here then, sir, to-morrow

in his turn; and opening the door, he con

the unmatod aud homuiess womeD,
whose brows may never bo crowned
with the bays of household authority,
claim not our sympathy, but our es

not always her fault that she has so
home. Sometimes she hasn't bad a
chance. And we love these nnseltish
and devoted lives, which work in
single harness, and carry so cheerfully
life s burdens and cares, with none of
those beautiful incentives to duty
which animate the married sister. For
she, the patient cheery gleaner, has
never caught the speaker's eye, and to
her Boaz can never be more than a
brother-in-law.. Alone she . sings and
"gleans and gathers after the reapers
among the sheaves," and finds no
special grace in the eyes of Boaz, which
is boss. No man reaches her the parch
ed corn, and passes her tbe vinegar
for her morsel, and no indulgent reap
er streweth her way with handfuls of
barley. What she gleaneth, she car
rleth home and hath for her own, un
less, peradrenture, she hath her sis

She may never have any cigar stumps
to pick off the piano, no pipe ashes to
dust off tbe window sill; no muddy

pet; no one to whom she can gladly
give np the rocking-chair and new
