The Silver Watch
By THOMAS COBB
It was only the importunity of his
wife and daughters which induced Mr.
Markwick to take four seats in White
hall for the coronation, and fortunate
ly he was also persuaded to substitute
for his gold English lever a compar

and aggressively prosperous-found
himself wedged in the crowd whilst
deft hands passed stealthily over his
white waistcoat. Still, as Mrs. Mark
wick subsequently remarked, how for
tunate It was that he had left his gold
watch at home.
''his occurred on the Thursday. and
the following morning he did not go
to the city as usual. Late in the aft
ernoon he set out for a stroll through
some of the more deserted streets, and
on reapproaching his house shortly
after six o'clock saw a man of about
his own age standing on his doorstep
-a tall, slenderly built man wearing a
blue serge suit a little the worse for
wear and a soft felt hat. He had a
somewhat pale face, a moustache, and
a short pointed beard.
"For you, sir." said the butler, hand
ing Mr. Markwick a small cardboard
"Good gracious!" was the answer as
he removed the unsecured lid, "it's my
That it should have been stolen In
the crowd was not very astonishing.
but why In the world should the thief
take the trouble to return it? How
I did he know the address. If he was
stricken by remorse why had he not
brought back the fountain pen, the
few odd shillings, and the pocket knife
as well? As he stood looking from
the watch to the restorer, who certain
ly had rot the appearance of a thief,
Mr. Markwick's thoughts momentarily
flew back nearly a quarter of a cen
He was back at Chesterborough-a
boy again. In his case the child had
not been lather to the man. What a
young fool he was in those days. He
would have given the world for Muriel
Castelet, at whose death the capacity
for those more romantic sensations
had passed away. Although .he had
married a few years later and lived
as contentedly with his wif as 1 man
may in an imperfect world be had
never felt towards her as he once had
felt towards Muriel..
They used to read poetry together
in those days. Good heavens! Mr.
Markwick could have smiled at the
recollection if he had felt less sur
prised by the restoration of his watch.
"Kindly walk this way," he said,
turning towards his smoking room at
the end of the hall, and after a mo
ment's hesitation the visitor followed
him. "I feel curious," Mr. Markwick
added. "to hear what is your object in
bringing back my watch. I presume
you are aware it was stolen from my
pocket yesterday morning."
"So you don't recognize me," was
I the answer.
"Certainly not," said Andrew Mark
"Look again," replied the visitor,
and raising a hand he held it in fronat
of his pointed beard. "Dimsdale," he
"Good heavens! You can't be Jack
Dimedale," he added.
"Nobody else, I assure you," return
ed Jack. "A beard makes a world of
difference. Now yeou haven't altered
much--stouter, of course, and all that,
but then the change has been gradual
and I've known you about town by
sight a long whle."
"Why didn't you speakT" demanded
"Oh, well, you see you've got along
in the world. I haven't."
"Yes," said Mr. Markwick compla
cently, Tve not done so badly. But
Sthen I have worked hard. How the
Ssight of you takes one's memory betack.
Not that I should have known you
from Adam. You haven't" Mr. Mark
wick added, "told me how my watch

was to g-t a certain sutrl of lti(1n y ;
from an estate, and then the roar' l;t: !11

For several years the farmer had i t
taken in three or four .nmn!er boar,
ers every season, but crops leing good ;l
and money plenty he added to his ii
house room and prepared to acconm- t i
nlodate a dozen guests.
It was the first guest that arrived \.
that played hob with the peace of the i11
family. Farmer Ilillets had a streak ~,
of vanity that had lain dormant for 44 ii
years. When he stood in the middle ~;
of the highway and looked at his ,.,
house with the new addition on--at 1,i
the newly-painted fence in front-at al
the sign of "Summer Boarding" in a ai
conspicuous place, that latent vanity
came to the surface and blossomed. tc
His farm was a farm no longer-it ua
was "The Lake View," although the
nearest lake was 90 miles away. He
was a farmer no longer-he was a
landlord. lie didn't break his back at
the spring work, but loafed around
and left Joab's back to bear most of
the burden. He also cultivated an ap
petite for five-cent cigars and in one
short month there was such a change
in him that his wife asked Joab under e
"Have you noticed how much differ
ent pa is lately?" I'
"There does seem to be a change,"
was the reply.
"Is he kinder losing his mind?" K
"I guess he's puffed up a bit."
The first comer was an actor. Far- g
mer Hillets had heard and read more
or less of actors and he was not only a
curious but a good deal awed. When
'e lntha. that bctor ear ma

Farmer Hibets didn't know whether
the actor led a procesion, a cow or a
i hore, and he didn't ask. He 'tun t
g vlring himaelf away.
The actor sapont the first week try
ing to flirt with Nancy and in making
I Joab Jealousa. The econd week he
lot down to brass tacksl and informed
the farmer that the Hlllet were the
direct descendants of King Carlo, of
Denmark, and that they had bluer
blood than any Knickerboceer in New
York. Mr. Hillets ran inh breoathle
haste to toll his wifa
"Well, what of It?" she asked.
"What of It? Whay, we are ome
pumpLkins, b'goeh Any man that can
trace his blood back to a hking has a
rlght to hold aup his head."
"Well, don't bhold it aup 'till you get
a crick In the neckt!"
S The nexat day the farmer wae in
formed that Joab'se ehareteor had
Sbeen read, and that he wars a man of
low origin end would probably bring
up In prason all right, but that was his
Snatural craftiness. Beware of Joab!
He was planning to get the Hilletrs
Sfarm into hisa hand and d send the old
. folkshe to the poor-house. He might
Sseem to love Nancy, but that was his
* plot. He would send her to her grev
with a broken heart within a year.

During the rest of the day Joab
looked like a man beariLg a mental
burden, but after a talk with Nancy
and her mother that night his face
wore a smile.
"You and Joab ain't going to do no
eloping to get married." said the moth
er, "and we are going to bring your
lather to his senses. That actor man
seems to have turned his head."
Before the two weeks were up the
"Lake View House" was full of
guests, and farmer llllets went around
chuckling and rubbing his palms to
gether. The season would be a great
success. He did not forget that little
affair between Nancy and Joab. To
his surprise, neither of them seemed
cast down. and every time he spoke
to his wife about It she answered
Joab's two weeks would expire on a
Wednesday. As the day drew near he
was reminded of it, and he answered
that he would be ready with his an
swer. On Tuesday evening, as the
father was King Carlo-ing around,
Nancy asked him to fetch some pota
toes from the granary in the barn to
be prepafed for breakfast. He went
without a lantern, and the moment he
was inside the room the door was
slammed on his heels and locked.
When he'began a row a voice called:
"Father, you must be careful!"
'That you, Nancy?" he shouted
back. "What have you locked me in
"Father, there is a box in there
with two skunks in It!"
"Joab trapped them last night."
"He's going to stir them up and let
