"WHAT THE MlSCIIIlP HAS Al'N'TV OOT TO
DO WITH IT'."'
This chilly, sunless, early March day The
Grange wore a cheerless aspect, and Green
graves gazing In at the lenlless trees and the
lung formally shaped garden, wondered to
himself what could Induce a man of Sir
Kichard Fordyce's undoubted wealth to
take up his residence at such a place.
"Perhaps he is a good deal away from
home," said the detective to himself. "I
fancy I should be too if I were he."
Mr. Greengraves did not first of all ring
the bell and enter the house. After the
manner of his class, ho thought it best to
approach the scene of his investigations
with a certain amount of circumlocution,
and having made sure he should be able at
any time to find The Grange again when he
wanted it, he turned his back upon it now,
and retraced his steps in the direction of
the nearest piblic-house which he had pass
ed upon his way.
The town of Fulham is never very lively;
even when the great boat-race takes place
nearly all the fun is on the other side of the
water. On this particular' day the High
street seemed duller than usual, and it
would have been flattery to say that trade
was slack, for it had stood still.
Crossing the threshold of the inn, Mr.
Greengraves found he had the bar all to
himself, but the tapping of a two-shilling
piece brought a comfortable-looking stout
lady from the bar-parlor, who, from the
half disguised yawn with which she ap
proached, Mr. Greengraves Judged had been
taking a nap.
"Rather quiet to-day, ain't you, ma'am?"
said he, after he had given his order.
"Quieter than usual, 1 think," replied the
landlady, "and, goodness knows, that's not
"1 suppose you do a goodih business
sending out, though. There appears to be
a number of gentlemen's houses about"
"A few, hut, bless you, they don't deal

perhaps, or the servants may now and then
send for a little beer or spirits, but that's
"It is Sir Richard Fordyce who lives at
that tall red-brick house down the lane,
isn't it? Rather a dismal-lnoking shop. I
suppose he's an old bachelor !" j
"Old bachelor ! not he. I won't say he
doesn't look it. Well there, I don't mind if
he is listening, but he's Jut one of those
men, to my thinking, that no woman alive
could ever really care for."
"You mean that-eh? Well, now only to
go by that precious straight-backed garden
of his, I should say he wasn't what you
might call a very jolly sort of man?''
"For that matter the inside of the house
Is not very niuch more cheerful. Mr.Charles,
who's footman there, says the drawing-room
would give one the honors '"'
"Her ladyship, then, has rather a dull
f ine of it, I suppose?"
"I don't know that. They keep a good
deal of company, which we learn by the
servants coming here; though Mr.Charles
(tees say he should think the people who
came found it rather slow. And there's
never hardly a laugh heard. There's to be a
larire party, 1 hear, to-morrow night."
"Stie's a young woman'.'''
"Yes; and a pretty one. Bless you, she's
one of the beauties 1 They put her picture
in the paper the other day. The master
said he'd have it framed. 1 have it here."
Saying this, the landlady fetched a num
ber of the Hyde Park Journal, and handed
it to the detective. There, sure enough, was
Lady Fordyce's portrait An oval face,
with weet bad eyes. If the artist had not
flattered her very toueh, she must have been
a beautiful woman.
Whilst Greengraves was still looking at
the engraviug another customer arrived.
This was a person of about forty-five to
fifty years of age, who wore an imitation
sealskin-jacket, a black silk dress, rather
shabby at the hem, a hat with a bright
feather, and a fair display of aluminium
There were traces of good looks of times
past about a face which now was rough and
blotched with rod. She ordered sixpenny
worth of brandy hot, and on being served
asked the way to The Grange.

of the bar to get the spirits. On her return,

Round the corner of an old red-brick wall
enclosing The Grange garden, Mr. Green
graves watched her depart; too far away,
however, to catch the ineauingof any words
she had exchangod with the footman.
But when at length she had disappeared
in the distance he smote his thigh, and cried
"Of all the queer jobs I ever took up, In
all my born days, this beats the lot out and
out I What in the name of mischief has
aunty got to do with it?"
With which words Mr. Greengraves, soft
ly whistling to himself, followed in aunty's

DEIW. Two hours later, however, Mr. Green
graves wearily seati. g himself in front of a
table in an eating-liouse.at which his friend,
Gripper, was dining, said, in reply to the
other's question of what he had done :
"Nothing so far. I thought 1 had drop
ped on something and lost it again. Fooled
away half a day !"
"There's the night left, though," said
Gripper with a smile. "I'll be much oblig
ed to you, my boy, if you ere not too tired,
if you will presently pop on your dress-
clothes and go to the opera. That's what I
advise you to do; and I've made arrange

"On the same job st II?''
"Very much n, my boy. Ily the way, I
trotted down to the House of Commons as
wennreed, and made inquiries. Fordyce
dined there, as lie said, but hednl not go In
to the smoking-room at all; ho left early."
Gripper must have possessed considerable
inlliiencd to have obtained admission to the
opera that particular evening, for long be
fore the doors opened not a single seat had
been procurable at the box-olllces in tho
neighborhood. And when an elderly gen
tleman, in spectacles and a very palpable
brown wig, took his seat at the prompt side
comer of the first row of stalls, and looked
round, every seat in tho house appeared to
With a powerful glass, to use which he
did not remove the spectacles, for if the
truth must be told, they were but of the
simple material used for parlor-windows,
he saw, too, that, with but one solitary ex
ception, every private box had its occupants.
A bright and brilliant assemblage was there
gathered together, numbering among it al
most all that was distinguished in the worlds
of fashion, politics, literature, and art.
But thegentleman in the palpable wig could
have told you, I'll be bound, some strange
and not too pretty stories of the beautiful
women and aristocratic men about him, and
have paraded under the broad glare of the
gas, the grizzly bones of skeletons they
fancied safely stowed away under lock and
key, in those most secretcupboards at home,
for he, watching them by turns with rest
less eyes, was Greengraves, ex-polieeman,
ex-spy and informer, ex-convict, and, at the
present time, active partner in a struggling
private Inquiry ollice.
Surely that Mr. Greengraves had no soul
for music might have been inferred from the
fact that although he only arrived in the
middle of the third act of the opera, he did
not occupy himself during the remainder of
it, or the act succeeding, more than five min
utes at the outside in looking at the stage 01
listening to the singers; whilst between
the acts, he hurried over to the opposite
side of the stalls the moment that the cur
tain fell, and eagerly scanned the boxes on
the side of the house where his seat had
In due course, the opera reaching its end,
the corridors, staircases, and crush-room
were rapidly crowded with visitors, the
greater part going away, the rest idling
through the brief interval that preceded the
ballet; and cautiously picking his way, Mr.
Greengraves moved to and fro, seemingly
ever on the search for some missing person.
Suddenly the mention of a name close to
him caused him to quickly turn and listen.
"What, Sir Richard ! We don't often see
ou here, I think 1 Come to the last night
eh? What splendid form she is in eh?"
"Khl yes; of whom are you speaking?"
"Of Florida, to be sure," said the other,
mentioning the name of the prima-donna
whose farewell benefit it was that evening.
"Oh, to be sure, to be sure. Excuse me, 1
have some friends waiting for me;" and
coldly bowing Fordyce passed on.
The man who had addressed him turned
to a friend with a curious smile.
"I should like to make a bet with you,"
he said. "I'll lay you ten to one old Doguey
has come to see the ballet."
"What, Fordyce? Nonsense !"
"Will you take the bet, then ten to one
As the baronet passed along through the
crowd. Greengraves followed him at a safe
distance down a narrow staircase, and pres
ently saw a box-keeper pass him into the
box that he before had noticed to be stand
ing empty. Having watched the box-keeper
depart, Mr. Greengraves cautiously ap
proached the door, and after glancing round
to see that he was not observed, applied his
eye to the crevice. No sound was audible
within, and departing on ip-toe, ho hurried
back to his seat in the stalls.
The great days of ballet at the opera have
long since passed away. Of the fashionable
assemblage that a few minutes ago had
crowded every part of the house, but a
Mr. Greengraves, however, had a taste for
this kind of entertainment, and carefully
wiped his opera-glasses with his pocket
handkerchief as the curtain rose, for, ac
cording to his Instructions, his vigil had but
flic ballet opened much after the usual
style, with a group of nyinphs.who, separat

crasli of music, the premiere danseuse
bounded on to the stage, and nfter a series
of brilliant entrechats came abruptly as mo
tionless as a statue before the centre foot-
liglit to a faint sound of applause.

painful confusion, had drawn back luto the
dim obscurity. The danscuse with a slight
frown, and bitiug her lip, passed the boa

The first person" the detective met in the
passage was Mr. Moseley, the lessee, who
stared at nun very nam.
"Yes," said Greengraves, rightly inter
preting the other's look, "it's me. I want
to go on the stage. Will ycu pass mo through
the cross door, please?"
"With pleasure, Mr. Greengraves. As

"Good enough if any of the money were
coming to me. All bespoke every half
penny of it. If some one doesu'tcome to

"I shall see Moss to-morrow, and I'll have
a good talk with him."
In these few words lay the secret of Grip
per's influence at the theatre. Gripper had
acted as agent in obtaining loans for the un
fortunate lessee, plunged head and ears iu
debt and difficulty.
Greengraves passed through the door the
other unlocked for him, and found himself
upon the stage. The first scene had been
closed in by flats to prepare for a grand set.
The wings were thronged with ballet-girls,
and he picked his way through what seem
ed like tumultuous billows of muslin aud
On every side bright eyes met his with a
bold stare, and shapely anus and necks
flashed white in the gaslight But Mr.
Greengraves pushed his way stoically on
wards, with an occasional "Beg pardon," or
"Allow me," searching right and left for
some object he had In view.
Suddenly he stopped short, and drew back
a foot or so. In the shadow of a wing close
to Iiiin slood the premiere danscuse and Sir
Richard, ho leaning over her, seemingly in
In the middle of his speech she impatient

with a curl of her lip, "what Interest was

be a gentleman to keep his promise."
"But, Louise, I have explained. It is lost.

"Are there no more diamonds in the
world, then? Is that what you would have
me believe? Let 1110 tell you there are,
tlioegli, and more men too."
"Your turn, miss," said the call-boy at this
moment, as she returned to the stage, whilst
Fordyce remained where Mie had left him
with a white face, in which there was a
strange expression of pain and mortifica
tion. The carpenters jostled him as they pass
ed, and the ballet-girls wandering by trod
on his toes, and laughed witlt something
very like contempt.
Mr. Green,Taves shrugged his shoulders,

When, next day, Sir Richard Fordyce call
ed on Mr. Gripper, the latter fancied he
could detect a marked change in his visitor's
face, lie appeared to be full ten years older.
He looked hacgard and ill, and his manner
was absent and confused.
Very little time was occupied by the
transaction of business. Mr. Gripper ex
plained that his associate was out looking
up evidence, and that he believed he had
got some clue to the mystery, but at present
could say nothing definite.
"By the way, Sir Richard," said the agent,
"here is the card you left yesterday. We
did not make use of it. This evening, I be
lieve, you give a dance-party. If you can
find employment for an extra hand to wait
at tabic, Mr. Greengraves is your man."
Sure enough, that afternoon, Mr. Green
graves, in a suit of glossy black, with a pair
of clean white thread gloves In his coat tail
pocket, and a pair of thin-soled shoes upon
his feet, put in an appearance at Fulham,
presented his credentials, and straightway
proceeded to make himself extremely agree
able In the kitchen, although it must be al
lowed that the first offer of his assistance
caused some surprise to the servants. They
very easily came to the conclusion that
extra help was quite necessary though un-
expectcd.and passed over the greater part of
the work to Mr. Greengraves without a
Thus was it that the quick-sighted and
quick-eared detective was that evening here,
there, and everywhere, picking up a great
variety of information which might, soiiio
time or other, turn up useful, but which at
present lie could make little out of. The
dinner itself was a solemn affair, and, com
mencing at eight, dragged on its weary
course until a quarter to ten; and a quartet
past that hour, when the gentlemen had
joined the ladies upstairs, the detective,
with cat-like tread, and the gravest of grave
faces, was handing round the tea and coffee.
The company was divided into small
groups, and a low murmur of conversation
was carried on, with occasionally a smile
never a laugh. Almost in the centre of the
room, very upright with ids head a little
thrown back, and the gaslight falling upon
his silvery hair, and high polished forehead,
stood Fordyce,sieaking slowly and Impress
ively, whilst some half-dozen men around
him were listening with rapt attention and
respect It was some abstruse theory of na
tional morality he was expounding, and In
tho name of all that Christian men held
sacred, this theory should bo put into prac
tice. "Tea or coffee, sir?" said a soft voice at
his elbow, and the color came and went in
Sir Richard Fordyce's face.
The ladies of the company were mostly
gathered together in one group round an
easy-cliair-the easlest-indeed, almost the
only easy-chair worthy of the name that the
room contained, for it was furnished with
real, genuine Queen Anne furniture In
which Lady Fordyce was seated. The de
tective's watchful eyes settled many times
upon the half-recunibcnt figure of the mis
tress of the house.
Leaning back there with a queenly repose,
and an air of gently suffering loveliness,
from which now and again at most a faint
smile might be wrung, she was in truth a
beautiful picture, her delicate face half hid
den in the soft shadow of the fan, clapped
oy a jeweueu nana, tne stones of which glit
tered In tho gaslight.
Very little she said, but the ladies around
her were talking mild nonsense about recent
fashionable fetes, picture-galleries, new
uouKs, aim iiiiugs iney naureau in the news
papers, to which she seemed to listen Ian
guidly, now and again putting in a word.
Mr. Greengraves, silently gliding to and
iro, nna eyes ior nu tins.
I'resently a loud knock was heard at tho
outer door, and a few moments later a ndll
tary-looklng man entered the room, came
towards the hostess, who half rosetorecolve

"I in -t Sir Richard there," said tho new
comer, whom Greengraves now recognized
as one of tho men who had spoken to For

B. fore the last word was uttend Fordyce
stood by the speaker's side. t '
"Von were at the opera?" said Lady For
dyce inquiringly. "You did not mention it."
"It slipped my in mory," replied sir Rich
ard, whose face was very pale as ho spoke.
"I was there barely half an hour. 1 111 ssed

turning coldly towards his guest: "I am
very pleased to see you, although the pleas
ure was unexpected!"
"I aske.i Captain Campbell," replied Lady
Ford)C3 quietly, and her husband, without
any further remark, turned away.
"I wonder," said Greengraves to himself
with a grim smile, "how much my secret's
worth as it stands now? 1 mayn't be getting
much nearer the knowledge of the dia
mond's present whereabouts, but I'm pretty
well coached up in its antecedents."
Tlitf moment was, however, close at hand
when Mr. Greengraves was destined to make
a curious discovery.

i',l a shrewd philosopher who rejoiced
in the familiar title of Sam Barnes.
Siort of st:ture, keen t tongue, and
squeaky of voire, llarnos was known
to everybody, and in turn knew every
body so well that ho was able to hit oil"
their peculiarities to tho delight of all
li'iirers but tho victim. It is rehilcd,
for instance5, that a miserly neighbor
who, in the opinion of Plymouth farm
ers, starved his siock, complained to
Barnes that his pij: was sick. ;Tvo
iriveu him seaweed :ind rock weed," the
owner said, "and pigweed and burdock,
and nothing seems to nleaso him.
What would you do, Sam, if ho was
vours?" "Well, now, I swear to mau,"
'answered Sum, with his usual sharp,
jrky milliner, "if he was mirio I'd try
oiiu "with a little gooJ meal and wa
ter." Barnes was :i Universalijt, and
nich did he prido himself thereon.
One evening when tho church bulls
were ringiug, Sam, on his way to the
corner grocery, where his comrades
were wont to congregate, encountered
the orthodox clergyman. "Hallo, Par
son B.," piped Sam, "what on earth
are all those bells a-ringing for?" "It
is prayer-meeting evening, Mr.
Barnes," the clergyman replied, with
pious severity and mild reproof in hii
voice. "Well now, I swear," Sam
continued, as if tho idea were a novel
one to him. "What's it- for? What
do you do there?" "We pray, Mr.
lianies." "Pray? I swear to man!
Now, my Hib.u says: 'When wo pray
go into your closet, and shut the door,
and pray in secret.' " "But do you
pray iu secret?" asked tho divine, in
that tone of pointed appeal which
marks the consciousness of a home
thrust. "Well, now," retorted Barnes,
undismayed, "if I should tell you there
wouldn't bo nothing secret about it"
Aud with a triumphant chuckle he pur
sued his way to tho corner grocery.
The Boston (luzdte thus speaks of a
new use for tho telephone: "Sammy,

portunate question: 'inav I conic up to

with patience long tried, answers: No,

calmly commands tho dog to mount to
