Dr. Hernstein puffed a thick cloud
of smoke into the air and said quietly:
"Yes, sir; it U dlsaRreeable but
unfortunately it is life."
Suddenly the door opened and Capt.
Clinton appeared, followed by his Cdus
Achates, Detective Serpeant Maloney.
I:oth men were in plain clothes. The
captain's manner was condescendingly
poiilo, the attitude of a man so sure
of lii.i own poMlion that he had little
respect for the opinion of any one
o!ko. With an effort at amiability he

The servant retired and Capt Clin

deference, he said:
"Say, Mr. Brewster, you're a great
constitutional lawyer the greatest in
this country and I take off my hat to
you, but I don't think criminal law
Is In your line."
Judge Brewster pursed his Hps and
his eyes flashed as ho retorted
"I don't think It's constitutional to
take a man's mind away from him
and substitute your own, Capt. Clin
ton." "What do you mean?" demanded
"I mean that Instead of bringing out
of this man his own true thoughts of
Innocence, you have forced Into his
consciousness your own false thoughts
of bis guilt."
The Judge spoke slowly and delib
erately, making each word tell. The
police bully squirmed uneasily on his
"I don't follow you. Judge. Better
stick to international law. This police

"Perhaps it is," replied tho lawyer

Then ho asked: "Captain, will you an

"It all depends," replied the other
"If you don't," cr'.ed tho Judgo sharp
ly, "I'll ask them through tho me

Only my press will not consist of the

press of tho United States."
The captain reddened.
"I don't Uko tho insinuation, judge."
"I don't insinuate, Capt. Cllntou,"
went on tho lawyer severely, "I accuso
you of giving an untruthful version of
this matter to two (sensational news
papers In this city. These scurrilous
sheets have tried this young man In
their columns and found him guilty,
thus prejudicing tho whole community
against him before he comes to trial.
In no other country in tho civilized
world would this bo tolerated, except
In a country overburdened with free
dom." Capt. C'llnlyn laughed boisterously.
"The early bird catches tho worm,"
he grinned. "They asked mo for in
formation and got It."
Judge Brewster went on:
"You have so prejudiced the com
munity against Mm that there Is
scarcely a man who doesn't believe
him guilty. If tbl.s matter ever comes
to trial how can we pick ji unpreju
diced jury? Added to this foul injus
tice you have branded this your.g
man's wife wilh every M'c.ir.a that can
be put on womanhood. You have hint
ed that she is the mysterious female
who visited I'nderwood on tho night
of the shooting and openly suggested
that she Is the cause of the cilmo,"
"Well, It's just possible," said the
policeman wlili eflrontery.
Judge Brewster was fast losing his
temper. The mail's Insolent demean
or wua intolerable. Half rising lroui

mi fcn ii i J
his chair and pointing bis finger at
him, he continued:
"You have besmirched her character
with tdories of scandal. You have
linked her name with that of Under
wood. The whole country rings with
falsities about her. In my opinion,
Capt. Clinton, your direct object Is to
destroy the value of any evidence she
may give In her husband's favor."
The chief looked aggrieved.
"Why, I haven't said a word."
Turning to his sergeant, he asked:
"Have I, Maloney?"
"But these . sensation-mongers
have!" cried the Judge angrily. "You
are the only source from whom they
could obtain the information."
"But what do I gain?" demanded tho
captain with affected Innocence.
'Advertisement promotion," re
plied the Judge sternly. "These same
papers speak of you as the greatest
living chief the greatest public of
ficial oh. you know the political value
of that sort of thing as well as I do."
Judge Brewster picked up some pa
pers from his desk and read from one
"Captain, in the case of the Peoplo
against Creedon after plying the de
fendant with questions for six hours
you obtained a confession from hhu?"
"Yes, he told me he set the place
"Kxactly but It afterward de
veloped that he was never near tho
"Well, he told me."
"Yes. He told you, but It turned out
that he was mistaken."
"Yes," admitted the captain reluc
tantly. Judge Brewster again consulted the
papers in his hand.
"You're quite right, captain my
mistake it was homicide, but It was
an untrue confession."
"It was the same thing in the Cal
lahan case," went on the jtige, pick
ing up another document. "In the case
of the People against Tuthill and--Cosgrove
Tuthlll confessed and died
In prison, and Cosgrove afterward ac
knowledged that ho and not Tuthlll
was the guilty man."
"Well," growled the captain, "mis
tiikes sometimes happen."
Judge Brewster stopped and laid
down his eyeglasses.
"Ah, that is precisely the polut of
view we take in this matter! Now,
captain. In the present caso, on tho
night of the confession did you show

Capt. Clinton laughed loudly.
"Optical captivatlon Is good!" Turn
ing to his sergeant ho asked: "What
do you think of that, Maloney?"
Sergt. Maloney chuckled.
"It's a new one, eh?"
"No, captain It's a very old one,"
interrupted the lawyer sternly, "but
It's new to us. We're barely 'on the
threshold of the discovery. It cer
tainly explains these other cases.
"I don't know that It does." object
ed the captain, shaking his head. "I
don't acknowledge "
Judge Brewster sat down. Looking
the policeman squarely In the face,
ho said slowly and deliberately:
"Capt. Clinton, whether you ac
knowledge it or not, I can prove that
you obtained these confessions by
means of hypnotic suggestion, and
that Is a greater crime against society
than any the state punishes or pay's
you to prevent."
The captain laughed and shrugged
his shoulders. Indifferently he said:
"I guess the boys up at Albany can
deal with that question."
"The boys up at Albany," retorted
the lawyer, "know as little about the
laws of psychology as you do. This
will be dealt with at Washington!"
The captain yawned.
"I didn't come here to hear about
that you were going to produce the
woman who called on Underwood the
night of the murder that was what i
came here for not to hear my meth
ods criticised where is she?"
"One thing at a time." replied the
Judge. "First, I wanted to show you
that we know Howard Jeffries' con
fession is untrue. Now we'll take up
the other question." Striking a b !l
on his desk, he added: "This w o"..an

Tho Judge nodded.
"She has promised to produce the
missing witness to night."
"She has. eh?" exclaimed the cap
tain. Rising quickly from his chair, he
crossed the room and talked la ;m
undertone with his sergeant. This
new turn In the case seemed to Inter
est him. Meantime Mr. Jeffries, who
had followed every phase of the ques
tioning with close attention, left his
seat and went over to Judge Brewster.
"Is it possible." he exclaimed, "is it
possible that I'nderwood shot him
self? I never dreamed of doubtir.;;
Howard's confession!" More cordially
he went on: "Brewster, if this is
true. I owe you a debt of gratitude

Nebuchadnezzar. lKtli and tilth yfar of
Jeholaklm rigned kIx years after
he had burned the roll of Jeremiah's
prophecies, which, like the fabled
phoenix rose anew and fresh from
the ashes. Ho was slain in C;7.
Tho first blow of the threatened
doom of Judah had fallen during tke
fourth year of his reign, the first toll-

Jeholachin, his r-on, ascended tho
throne, a bad, weak boy, utterly unfit,
to cope with the situation. His reign
lasted only three monthR.- Upon Je
holachin descended the full force of
the divine vengeanco incurred by
previous generations. Ho was scarcely
on the throne when tho Chaldean
forces, which had been ravaging Ju
dea, were joined by Nebuchadnezzar
himself, and closed around Jerusa
lem, and Jeholachin eurrendered at
discretion. The arm of Babylon raised
to strike Ma father fell on him, and
fulfilled the prophecy against Jehoia
kim. "He Khali have none to sit upon
the throne of David." Jeholachin was
kept a prisoner In Babylon for 37
years and was then released.
This was the second blow of dhino
Judgment, the beginning of the second
captivity, when lO.Ooi) people were car
ried captive to Babylon. Among them
were the king's wives and offleers,
and 7,000 that were strong and apt
for war, and 1.000 craftsmen; and a
large part of the 5,400 vessels of gold
and silver from the Temple and pal
aces. The policy of Nebuchadnezzar
was to remove out of the way all those
who might be able to organize a re
volt when he and his army had de
parted. Such men It would have been
dangerous to leave behind. It would
seem aa If all this would have been
sufficient to prevail on the people ta
repent and be saved.
Zedeklah, the brother of Jeholakln,
was placed upon the throne by Nebu
chadnezzar, "a shadow king over a
desperate band of men. During the
first nine years of his reign the na
tion, Instead of embracing the oppor
tunity of repentance, plunged more
deeply into folly. The dregs of the
people, left behind In Jerusalem, laid
this flattering unction to their souls:
"We have been spared by Jehovah,
therefore we are righteous in his.
During a brief respite while Nebu
chadnezzar left Jerusalem free while
ha fought tho Egyptians Jeremiah
w ent forth out of Jerusalem to go into
tho land of Benjamin. His home was
at Anathoth In Benjamin, three or
four miles north of the city. It wes
apparently to secure his share of the
tlites and produce- of the Levlttcal
glebe of tho village, duo to hhu as one
of its priests. Knowing that the Chal
deans would return. It was Imperative
that he should obtain the means of
subsistence to take back Into the city,
so soon to be beleagured afresh. Oth
ers think It was to secure himself In
the possession of an Inheritance.
There was a natural rush to get out
of the city after so long a confine
ment. Jeremiah went with the others.
When Jeremiah was In the gate of
Benjamin, the north gate cf the city,
! that by which any one would go to
! tho country of Benjamin which ad-
joined Jerusalem, a puard said: "Thou
! fullest away to the Chaldeans; you
! are trying to desert to the enemy."
! Then said Jeremiah: "False! A He!
j I fall not a way to the Chaldeans."
He was arrested by the guard, and
I brought to tho princes, the officials of
the government, who were wroth with
Jeremiah. Ho bad compared them to
rotten figs. He was the strongest and
most resolute opponent of their war
policy. But for htm they would have
had it ail their own way.
Jeremiah was placed In a dungeon
under the prison building. Jerusalem
was honey-combed with subterranean,
cisterns, vaulted or arched overhead,
ami cabins, vaults, tho subterranean,
niched spaces cf a cistern, containing
At last Zedeklah. tho king, secretly
took him out to Inquire: "Is there any
word from the Ixrd?" Jeremiah re
plied: "There Is." Tho word was:
"Thou sb.alt be delivered into tho hand
of the king cf Babylon."

the tuberculosis patient, he might as
well give up his f.ght for health. "The
period of infection with tuberculosis,"
he says, "Is not a vacation. It Is a
twenty-four-hour-i-day job. True It Is

work should consist of rest; rest

The light i-vertlse, or hoar cf read
