Mr. St. John's referees gave him the high

was to arrive in Keppel-street In tiniii for
dinner on a certain Wednesday.
Mis. Vi rnon was in the drawing-room,
ready to receive him ; Kate-who had only
)ti-t returned from her teaching was dress
ing for dinner, and Nina, and two other sis-t-
ts, were in the drawing-room.
These were Flossie, u pretty girl of I ileen,

years old, the pet of the whole family, and
specially devoted to Nina, on whose km c
she was now seated, prattling about the
Violet, usually called Dottr, had had her
tea : but she was usually allowed to sit next
to II. art-ease at dinner, and was regaled 011
sundry tid-bits by that young lady.
"1 may tuiii to-day, mayn't J?" she plead
ed coiivingly ; "Ml lie so dood."
"Ye-, you may coaieif you an: very good,"

side, and the girl so caressing and tender,

And Mr. SI. John proved himself a de

How could he liave with that girl's face

In the drawing-room after dinner there

girls sang well and played well; and photo

lint when the hour of retirement came,
Mrs. Vernon lingered behind with Kate,
and, lidgctingoversoinethliigat a side-table,
remarked a little uneasily:
"He is a very striking man, Katie, lam
almost sorry Heart-ease is very lovely,
a man cannot help noticing her; everyone
stares at her in the street."
Kate began laughing.
"You dear little mammy!" said she;
"don't make yourself unhappy. Of course
Mr. St. John notices Heartsease, I saw him
looking at her who could help it? H it
what harm is there? l'eople must take their
chance. We can't starve, can we? becau-e
Nina chooses to be a witch."
Mrs. Vernon sighed a little, but said no
more, and mother and daughter departed to
their several chambers.
Nina's opinion of the new boarder was
frankly given to Kate; it was highly eulogis
tic, and missy thought they would all like
him very much. ,
"Dottie's quite in love with him," udded
Heartsease, as she laid her curly head on

thinking ol Puttie, or of anyone save that
damsel rightly called H 'art-ease.
"1 wonder," he said to himself, "if 1 can

have he'd her hand in mine to-night longer;

then mid still think the man must have
been a fool to think I could find a tub
of butter that had been stolen for two
hours. He gave me the marks on the
tub, which 1 immediately forgot. My
night post was at I'liltou Market, and
I had hardly gone on post when I saw
a man with u tub of butler on his shoul
der. I saw that the marks were simi
lar to those given to me, and 1 stopped
him. He gave a lame explanation of
how he got the butter, and 1 took him
and the butter to the station. It turned
out that it was the very butter that bad
been stolen. The owner took the re
covery as a inafler of course, and I'll
bet if he ever lost another tub and it
wasn't recovered at once that 'he ac
cused the police of incapacity. I could
give numerous other instances, but this
is enough to show that a great deal of
the so-culled line detective work is the
result of luck, pure ami .simple I
don't l'ti V, llioiioh, that a great many,
in fact, a large percentage of the work
is the result of sheer downright hard
work nnd keen detective ability."

prior to taking hold of bis key he

get 11 rabbit's foot Into his pocket, or in
other words imbibed too much sour

when he found himself at his post wf

that It was impossible for him to direct
tlie movements of the 1 ruins 011 the road
during the night. The more he en
deavored to lind a way out of his dilem
