watching tho nan glowing ml over the

porter to tho Amoking room.
"I think yon culled yotireelf Barnes,

'Y; wlintof it!"
"Ate yon Mr. Borne, the detective?"
"Why do yon ask?"
"Uocani'o, if yon are, the conductor

next nacli?" "
"Wait a minnto.' Mr. Barnes went
bark into the main part of tho coach
aud tiptoed towaid No. 8. Gently mov
ing tlm curtain, ho peeped in and
looked long and earnestly. Ho saw two
men undoubtedly sleeping soundly.
Hatii.flcd, therefore, that he could leave
bin watch for a brief period, he followed
the porter into tho next coach, where
lie found the conductor waiting for him
in tho Hmoking room.
"Von aro Mr. Barnes, the detective?"
asked tbe conductor. Mr. Barnes as
sented. "Then I wifh to place in your hands
officially a newt myHterions case. We
took on a lady lant night atBonton, who
had a ticket to South Norwallc As wo
wero approaching that point a short
timo ago shn was notified by the porter.
Mio aroHn and dreiwcd preparatory to
leaving tlie train. A few minutes later
I was hurriedly summoned, when the
wnnun, between hysterical sobs, in
formed me that she bad been robbed."
"She- claims to miss a satchel contain
ing 1 1 oo, 000 in jewelry."
"Yon have stated that adroitly. Sho
claims to mi.s ! What evidence have yon
that fbo ha met with any loss at all?"
"Of course wo cannot tell about the
jewelry, hut sho did have a satchel,
which i now inifsdiig. The porter te
memliers it, and v.o have searched thor
oughly, with no success."
"We havo stopped at New Haven and
nt Bridgeport. How uiauy persons have
left tho train?"
"No ono has left the sleepers. "
"When yon say that no ono has left
tho sleepers. I suppose yon mean you
aw no ono leave?"
"No I 1 mean just what I aid. I havo
sent tho porters through tho coaches,
and they report that all onr passengers
are in their berths. But here wo come to
u point. If no ono has left the train,
then tho thief must be aboard?"
"Tho woman when she discovered her
loss concluded to remain aboard and go
on to New York. ' All the other pat-sen-gers
save one are booked for New York.
That one is a man, and he is now dress
ing, as bis destination is Stamford. If
he leave ho may take the jewels with
him, yet what am I to do?"
"State tho facts of the case to him. If
he is innocent, ho will willingly submit
to being searched. If, however, he re
fuses well, wo can be guided by cir
cumstances. Call him in here now."
A few minutes later a foreign and dis
tinctly French appearing man entered.
In speech ho disclosed bis origin, but
tho accent was slight. Ho was of fine
appearance, dignified and gentlemanly.
Mr. Itarnen sat nt tbe window looking
out Tho conductor with considerable
hesitancy explained the case, concluding
"You see, my dear sir, this is an awk
ward bnsine, Imt we nro so sure that
the thief is still aboard that"
"That yon hesitate to allow me to
leave tbo train, rb. monsieur, is it not
to? Yet why should there bo any trou
ble? An honest man must never be hurt
in his feelings when he is a-dtcd to assist
the law, even though f .it th moment ho
is himself a what yon call it inspect?
In this case it is so simplo if only tho
honest men will make no trouble. They
will say to yon, 'Search wot You do
so, and at last ono comes who says,
'Yon insult me!' That ono is of course
the thii-f, cli, monsieur? Do yon not agree
with me?" Ho tamed toward Mr.
Barnes, addressing this last remark to
him. The detective looked ut him a mo
ment steadily, n w;is his wont when lie
meant to remember a face. The French
man returned the gaze undistnrbed.
"I said almost the same thing to tbe
conductor before you came in," said Mr.
"Exactly so. Now. then, with your
permission I Mrill disrobe, Look, if yon
please, most carefully. My honor is at
stake. The m.yre carefully yon examine
tho less suspicion can attach tome here
after." Tho cotiductor made a thorough
acarcb. emptying every pocket and tak
ing every precaution. He did not expect
to And anything, but it was essential
that extreme care should be observed.
Nothing was fraud, and tho man re
sumed his clothiug.
"Now, if you please, I have with me
but two small satchels. If the porter
Will bring tbem, I will unlock them for
TOO. I have no trunk, as I only went to
Boston for a day's trip."
Tho satchels were brought, examined
and nothing found.
"Now, gentlemen, I suppose I am
free, as we are at my station. I shall
only remain here a few hours aud will
then go on to New York. If you should
tvich to gee me again, I shall stop at the
Hoffman Honso. Here is my card. Au
Mr. Barnes took the card and scruti
"What do yon think?" asked the con
ductor. '.'Think? Ob, you mean of that fel
low. You Deed not worry about him.
There is not a shadow of suspicion
Jtgailist him at present. Besides, should
wo ever want him I could find him
again. Here is his name Alphonso
Tlianret card geuniiie, too, of French
mako aud style of type. We can dismiss
him now and tnm our attention to the
other passengers. Do you suppose I
could have au interview with the wom
an?' "You shall havo it if you wish. We
will not consult her wishes in the mat
ter. Tho affair is too serious. "
"Very well, then, send her in hero
and let me have a few words with her
ulfjun. Don't tell her that I am a detect
ive. Leave that to me."
A few minutes later a tall woman,
apparently about 43 years of age, en
tered, l-ho was not handsome, yet had
a pleasr.g face. As she seated herself
she looked keenly at Mr. Barnes in a
stealthy manner, which should have at
tracted that gentleman's earnest
thonght. Apparently he did not notice
it. The woman spoke first
"The conductor has scut mo in hero to
fee you. What havo yon to do with tho
"Nothing? Then why"
"When I say I have nothing to do
with the case, I mean simply that it
rests with yon whether I shall undertake
to restore to you your diamonds or not.
I look after such things for this road,
but if tbe loser does not wish any action
taken by the road, why, then, we drop the
matter. Do you wish me to mako a
search for tho stolen property?"
"I certainly wish to recover the jew
els, as they aro very valuable, but I am
not sure that I desire to place the case in
the hands of a detective."
"Who said that I am a detective?"
"Aro you not one?"
Mr. Barnes hesitated a moment, but
quickly decided on his course.
"I am a detective connected with a
privato ngency. Therefore I can under
take to look up the thief without pub
licity. That is your main objection to
placing tho case in my hands, is it not?"
"You are shrewd. There are reasons,
family reasons, why I do not wish this
loss published to tho world. If yon can
"But the conductor cant$ totcarch me."
undertake to recover the jewels and keep
this robbery out of tbe newspapers I
would ray yon wclL"
"I will take the case. Now answer
me a few questions. First, your name
and address. "
"My namo is Rose Mitchcl, and I am
living temporarily in a furnished flat in
East Thirtieth street, New York. I have
recently come from New Orleans, my
home, and am looking for suitable apart
ments," Mr. Barnes took out his note book
and made a memorandum of the address.
"Married or single?"
"Married, but my husband has been
dead for several years."
"Now ulKiut these jewels. How did
it happen that you were traveling with
so valuable a lot of jewelry?"
"I have not lost jewelry, but jewels.
They are unset stones of rare beauty
diamonds, rubies, pearls and other pre
cious stones. When my husband died,
be left a large fortune, but tiicro were
also large debts, which swallowed up
everything save what was due him from
one creditor. This was an Italian noble
man I need not mention his name
who died almost at tho same time as
my husband. The executors communi
cated with me, and our correspondence
culminated in my accepting these jewels
in payment of the debt. I received them
in Boston yesterday, and already I have
lost them. It is too cruel too cruel!"
She gripped her hands together convul
sively, and a few tears coursed down
her face. Mr. Barnes mused a few mo
ments and seemed not to be observing
"What was the value of these jewels?"
"One hundred thousand dollars."
"By what express company were they
sent to you?" The question was a sim
ple one, and Mr. Barnes asked it rather
mechanically, though he was wondering
if the thief had come across the ocean
from France, perhaps. He was therefore
astonished at the effect produced. Tho
woman arose suddenly, her whole man
ner changed. She replied with hex lips
compressed tightly, as though laboring
under some excitement.
"That is not essential. Perhaps I am
telling too much to a stranger anyway.
Come to my apartment this evening,
and I will give yon further particulars
if I decide to leave the case in your
hands. If not, I will pay yon for what
ever trouble you have in the interim.
Good morning !"
Mr. Barnes watched her leave the
room without offering to detain her or
making any comment on her singular
manner. Without rising from his seat
he looked out of the window and errnm
med on the pane. What he thought it
would be difficult to tell, but presently
he said aloud, though there was no one
to hear him :
"I think she is a liar!"
Having relieved himself thus, he re
turned to hia own coach. Ho found two
gentlemen in the toilet room allowing
themselves to be searched, laughing over
tho matter as a huge joke. He passed
by and entered his otvu compartment,
which tho porter had put in order. One
after another the few passengers arose,
heard of tho robbery aud cheerfully
passed through the ordeal of being
At last his patience was rewarded by
seeing the curtains of No. 8 moving,
and a moment later aline looking young
man of sis and twenty emerged, partly
drc-a-ed, and went toward tho toilet.
3Ir. Barnes sauntered after him, and en
tered the smoking room. Ho had scarce
ly reared himself before a man entered,
t.ho-vas evidently the other occupant of
section 8. While this second man was
washing, the conductor explained to
the other about tho robbery, and sug
gested that he allow kiaitelf to be search
ed. Ey this timo tho conductor was bo
coming excited. They wore within a
few minutes of ITcw York,- and all bis
passengers had been examined cave these
two. Yet theso two looked more aristo
cratic than any of the others. Ho was
astonished, therefore, to observe that the
young man addressed seemed very much
disturbed. He stammered and stuttered,
seeking words, aud finally in a hoarse
voico addressed his companion :
"Bob, do you hear, there's been a
Bis friend Bob was bending over tho
water basin, his head and face covered
with a stiff soap lather r.ud his hands
rubbing his skin vigorously. Before
replying he dipped his head completely
under the water, held it so submerged
a moment, then stood erect with eyes
shut and reached for a towel. In a mo
ment he had wiped tho puds from bis
eyes, and looking at his friend he an
swered most nneoiicernedlv :
"What of it?"
"Ent but the conductor wants to
"All right What are you afraid of?
You are not the thief, aro yoa?"
"There is no but in it. If von are in
nocent, let them go through you. " Then
wiih a light laugh ho turned to tho glass
and began arranging bis cravat. His
friend looked at him a moment with an
expression which no one but Mr. Barnes
understood. Tbo detective bad recog
uized by their voices that it was Bob
who had made tho wager to commit u
crime, aud it was rlaiu that his friend
already suspected him. His fright was
occasioned by tho thought that perhaps
Bob had stolen the jewels during the
night and then secreted them in his
clothing, where if found the suspicion
would not bo on Bob.
Mr. Barnes was amused as he saw the
young man actually searching himself.
In a few minutes, with a sigh of in
tense relief, having evidently discovered
nothing foreign in his pockets, he turned
to the conductor who stood waiting and
"Mr. Conductor," ho began, "I fear
that my conduct has seemed suspicions.
I can't explain, but nevertheless I am
perfectly willing to have you mako a
search. Indeed I am anxious that it
should bo a thorough one. " Tho exam
ination was made, and, as with the
ethers, nothing was found.
"Here is my card. I am Arthur Ran
dolph, of the firm of J, Q. Randolph &
Sou, bankers." Mr. Randolph stood a
triflo more erect as ho said this, and the
pocr conductor felt that be had dono
him a grievous wrong. Mr. Randolph
continued: "This is my friend, Robert
Lcroy Mitcheb I will vouch for him. "
At tho name Mitchcl Mr. Barnes was
a trifle startled. It was tho same as
that which bad been given by tho wom
an who had been robbed. At this point
Mr. Mitchcl, a man of 43, with a clas
sic face, spoko :
"Thanks, Arthur, I can take care cf
The condnctor hesitated a moment,
and then addressed Mr. Mitchcl:
"I regret very much tho necessity
which compels me to ask you to allow
yourself to bo. searched, but it is my
"My dear e:r, I understand perfectly
that it is your duty and have no per
sonal feelings against you. Nevertheless
I distinctly refuse."
"You refuse?" The words came from
the other threo men together. It is diffi
cult to tell which was the most sur
prised. Randolph turned palo and
leaned against the partition for support
Mr. Barnes became Blightly excited and
"That amounts to a tacit acknowledg
ment of guilt, since every other man
has been searched. " Mr. Mitchcl's re
ply to this was even more of a surprise
than-what ho had said before.
"That alters the case. If every one
else has submitted, 6o will L" Without
more ado he divested himself cf his
clothing. Nothing was foaud. The
satchels of both men were brought, but
the search was fruitless. The conductor
glanced at the detective helplessly, but
that gentleman was looking out of the
window. One who knew Mr. Barnes
could have told that he was angry, for
he was biting the end of his mustache.
"Here we are at the Grand Cejitral,"
eaid Mr. MitcheL "Are we at liberty to
leave tho train?" Receiving an acquies
cent nod, tho two friends walked to the
other end of the coach. Mr. Barnes ab
ruptly started up, and without a word
jumped from tho train as it slowly roll
ed into the great depot He went up to
a man quickly, said a few words in an
undertone, and both went back toward
the train. Presently the woman who had
teen robbed came along, and as she
passed out of the building Mr. Barnes'
companion followed her. He himself
was about to depart, when, feeling a
light tap upon his shoulder, he turned
eud faced Mr. MitcheL
"Mr. Barnes," said tho latter, "I
want a few words with yon. Will you
breakfast with mo in tho restaurant?"
"How did yon know that my name is
"I did not know, though I do now,"
and he laughed iu a complacent manner
which jarred on Mr. Barne3. The de
tective felt that this man was getting
the best of him at every turn. But for
Kll that he was only the more determined
to trap him in the end. Accustomed to
think quickly, ho decided to accept the
invitation, considering that ho could
lose nothing and might pain much by
a further acquaintance. The two men
therefore went below to the eating room
and seated themselves at a small table.
After giving the waiter a liberal order
Mr. Mitehel began :
"Won't it be best for us to understand
ono another from the outset, Mr.
"I don't know what yon mean."
" I think yon do. You asked mo a mo
mei.t ago how I knew your name. As I
eaid, 1 did not know it, though I suspect
ed it. Shall I tell you why:"
"Certa'. y, if yon wish."
"Pcrhapj I am a fool to show yon
your first blunder in this game, since
; iu are evidently enlisted against me,
bat as I scut my friend off alone pur
posely for tho chance of doing so I can
not resist the temptation."
"Stop a moment, Mr. Mitehel. I am
not such a fool as you take me to bo. I
knew what yon are going to say."
"Ah, indeed! That is clever."
"You are about to tell me that I made
u ass of myself when I spoke in tho
loach upon refusing to bo searched. "
"Well, I should not have put it quite
to harshly, but tho fact is this : When
you deliberately followed Randolph in
to tbe toilet room, I became suspicious,
being, as I was, at your heels. When
the conductor spoke to me, I refused
purposely, to watch the effect upon you,
with the result, as you now see, that I
had my suspicion confirmed. I knew
that yon weio a detective, and, that
point gained, there was no further rea
son for refusing the conductor. "
"As I said, I acted liko an ass. But I
did not need this warning. ' It will not
occur again, I r.ssure you. "
"Of course I see now that yon ovcr
heand our conversation last night, and,
6uch being tho case, you naturally sus
pected mo of this robbery. Cut i am
wondering, if yon did overhear our talk,
why yon did not watch mo all night."
To this Mr. Barnes made no reply. "I
have one favcr to ask."
"What is it?"
"That yea reveal to no ono the fact
that I have undertaken to commit a
crime. You of course are at liberty to
play the ferret and convict mo if you
"As surely qs you commit a crime, so
surely will I convict you of it," replied
Mr. Barnes. "It will bo perhaps to my
interest to keep what I know to myself,
but it will not do to mako any promises
to yon. I must be free to act as circum
. "Very good. I will tell yon where I
am stopping and I give you permission
to call to pee mo whenever you please,
day or night. I havo a suit of rooms at
the Fifth A nne. Now let me ask you
one question. Do you think that I com
mitted this rcbery?"
"I will answer yoa with a question.
Did you commit this robbery?"
"Capital. I seo I havo a foeman
worthy of my steel. Well, wo will leave
both questions unanswered for tho pres
