If a woman courts indigestion, Bhe
can devise no surer method of getting
It than by eating heartily when she is
very tired. Chronic dyspepsia is al
most' sure to follow a long course of
heavy dinners eaten when the diner is
worn out with her day's work.
i. To prepare .for dinner* after a busy
day, take off the Street gown, take out
the hair pins and take off the shoes.
Brush the hair a few minutes and pin
it loosely up, but not in the same place
where it is usually worn. Have ready
a bowl of hot water. Wash the face
and neck in it. Press the wash cloth
as hot as it can be borne, at the back
I of the neck and over the eyes. When
I the hot water has relaxed the tense,
tired muscles somewhat, dash cold
water, with toilet vinegar or cologne
,in-it, over the face and neck. Then lie"
down for fifteen minutes. Keep the
eyes closed and the mind, as far as
possible, a blank.
Then drink a cup of hot water, or
hot, weak tea. Put on a fresh gown,
,and, unless the weariness has been un
I usually severe, the blithest and most
rested sensations follow, and dinner is
a pleasure, and not another duty in
the day's dull routine.Philadelphia

Several robberies hart been oonunit
ed hi a woll known and'popular hotel
.11. one of our large cities. These rob
beries were,of very mysterious cliar
irrer and baliled all unlinary device^
"or their detocfion. That they were
all the work of one man. or act of men,
was apparent from their similarity. As
ilescripfiye of the two which preceded
it, let me tell the story of Jlr. and Mrs.
They registered in the hotel which I
may call the "Cawmor house," and se
lected room No. 1&, on tlie second floor,
which was also the apartment which
had been despoiled twice before. They
vere accompanied by Mi "Line"
Regis, Mrs. Pascal's niece, she having
a communicating room, which fronted
.he street. The landlord cautioned the
iruests to lie careful of their valuables,
which, o** course, they promised to do.
Mr. Pascal, the day following their
arrival, having business to look after
in a neighboring town, left the ladies
After a late dinner
ihey rame up stairs, and, partly dis
robing, each retired to her own room,
madame to nap and Miss Regis to read,
the door between the two rooms, how
ever, being opened wide and the out
5ide doors carefully lock od and bolted.
It.was 4 o'clock when Mrs. Rascal
iwoke from her siesta and both ladies
began to dress. Miss Regis lufd not
been asleep for a second, a late novel
having enchained her attention. The
madame, previous to lying down, had
taken off and placed upon the dressing
stand her handsome diamonds, valued
at nearly $0,000. This article of furni
ture was but a few feet away from the
bod and in full view from fho couch in
nearly all positions. A person stand
ing or seated opposite the door of the
other chamber had them in sight also.
Mrs. Rascal, having robed herself in
another dress, sought her jewels, and
after a few moments' search tiie con
viction was forced upon her that they
had been stolen. Instantly she sum
moned the clerk, and he called in the
hotel proprietor, and a fuller investi
gation was made, but the diamonds
were nowhere to found, nor could
the detective who had been employed
by the hotel since the .second opera
tion, and who remained in the hou^e
as a. guest, give any solution of the
matter. There was absolutely no clew
to, the robber.
The proprietor was almost at his
wits' end, for well lie knew thai unless
this were ferreted out his hotel would
soon become an unprofitable concern.
Reflecting on the matter, lie concluded
to apply to a well known detective
agency, and .after his story had been
related my chief concluded to under
take the case and placed me in charge,
with instructions to spare neither ssefll
nor money hi discovering the thief. 7
Instated upon the retention of ihe hotel
detective as a "cover." antl stipulated
that he should ostensibly be in charge
of the case, and that the proprietor
himself should maintain the secret and
not interfere in any Way whatever, un
less called upon by my ^hicf.
When I snt down to think over Iho
matter I was Struck by the exceeding
difficulty of tlie case. I had no clew
upon which to work, and that a thief
should be able to effect an entrance
into a bed chamber, with a*.vido-a\vake
person in sight and hearing, staggered
my experience. I saw that 1 had a
most crafty person to deal with and
some entirely new trick to understand.
The longer I thought over it the more
puzzled I became, for I knew Sam
Rence. the hotel detective, must lvvve
made a pretty thorough canvass of the
operation, examined the windows,
closets and-doors, as well a* been on
the alert for suspicious characters He,
I knew, was a good enough man
any ordinary business, but outside of
that had no imagination or skill. Clear
ly, this was a case for a most delicate
jperation. Rut I made up my mind
as to a course of action, and resolutely
folloAved it out. with what result the
reader may learn at the close of this
The Rascal party left after a week's
sojourn and room No. lb was vacant
for a day, when a Mrs. De Lancy
Moore and her maid occupied it. Mrs.
Moore was one of those ladies who
nay be described in music-symbolism

ihed, the maid, and an old maid at
that, might be catalogued as p. p.
r.r. "patient, pah? and prudish." Mad

npicak. Poor Rachel was in complete
subjection to he? mistress and walked

Tin were not many days in the
hotel before Snm Rotice displayed his
wit in styling them "Pumpkin and
Prune." Sam saw the gorgeous dis
nlay of diamonds, jewelry and many
olored silks which Madame Moore
wore, aud in a quiet way warned Ra
lul of the danger of leaving valuables
arelessly around in their room. Poor
'tachcl hardly vouchsafed an answer
to his impudence, but all at once it
struck upon his benighted intellect
.hat it would be a good thing to show
her some litJle attention and secure
'icr co-operation in the watch for the
thief. Acting upon that suggestion lie
became quite gallant, and while Ra
hel appeared very coy and exceed'
ugly meek. Sam concluded to trust
her. should he lind an opportunity to
nave an uninterrupted talk.
Madame Moore came up stairs on a
certain Wednesday, fairly blazing with
diamonds, and entered her room,
where RaChel partly unrobed her. and
discreetly quitting the room, the maid
retired to an adjoining one. While her
mistress indulged in her "cat-nap," as
she called it. aiid which generally last
ed a good two hours. At madame's
request, the window curtains in Ra
eheffl room were drawn, so as to shut
out the light from the street. Rachel
took up a book and madame a relig
ious journal. The diamonds were }u
carelessly upon the dressing bureau.
In Hie course of half an hour the
sound of deep snoring was heard from
the bed. and Rachel, dropping her
book, fixed her eyes upon the looking
jdass in her room, in which was !o be
seen a reflect loll of tlie jewels.

its ascent and disappearance.
i saw through the whole, trick lit

clothes, I grasped my revolver and
slipped out of my room to call Sam to
my assistance. I managed to cast off
some of iny (Rachel's) toggery on the
way, and, in a wonderful plight, ap
peared before him. Of course, he was

landlord through tlie annunciator, aud

We burst into the room, but before
the door could be battered down, the
robber had cast an iron wire and an
apple out of the window. Fortunately

reality my wife, sa wthe articles de

controlled by a silk cord. When the
jaws of the vice were in position, tlie
cord was tightened, and they closed
around the valuables, and were drawn
up into the robber's hand.
I discovered, also, a trap in the floor
ing, cut nway by them, large enough
to admit his bead, which, when not in
use, was covered up by a carpet. Out
of the plaster ceiling in Madame's
room he had managed to cut an ori
fice large enough to pass in and out
the wire, and gave his eye command
of the dressing stand. This orifice,
when not in use, was closed with an
India rubber plug, painted to represent
the plaster, all this having been done
some months before .through the
agency ef a comrade aud his wife,
who occupied the room for a day.
