pretend that he had still another theory.
At least he could observe how Mr.
Mitcfael received it
"As ron say, all were searched. The
first was Mr. Thauret. Nothing was
found. Let us enrrpose a case. This man
Tbunret was in the same carriage with
tbe woman Rose MitcheL When tbe
train stopped at New Haven, suppose
tbat he took the satchel, left the train
and pareed it to yon through the win
dow of yonr section, thinking that only
bis carriage would be searched. After
his own examination be left tbe train at
Stamford. Why may he not have tapped
upon your window and have received
buck the satchel?"
That would make him my accom
plice. Yen are wrong. I do not know
the man at all.
You admitted having met bim wben
Hiss Dura Rcnisea introduced him to
"Ouceonly at a gamingtable. Tbat
is why I wus displeased to see him in
tbo bon:e of my intended. Passing the
robbery, then for despite my denial you
may think yonr explanation correct,
and a jury might agree with you let
tin come to the tanrder. Do yon suppose
a man would make a wager to commit
a crime and then go to the extreme of
killing a woman?
I do not. But, having committed
the robliery, and then having discovered
that this woman, who, yon sav, has
blackmailed yon, had actually taken nu
apart nit ut iu the same building with
yonr afliauced, you may have gone there
to utgo her to leiive aud have killed her
to save yonrseif."
"Plainly you do net kuow me. There
is one point in what you say which is
interesting. Did I understand that this
woman had au apartment in the Thir
tieth street building?"
"Certainly, and you knew it."
"You are mistaken. Let us return to
the jewels. You think that these are
tbe missing gems. If I prove to the con
trary, will you agree not to place me

feeling safo iu tho idoa that what Mr.

"Thank you! That gives mo my free

ing which, Mr. Mitchcl touched an elec
trie button; and when it was answered
sent a message up stairs asking Mr.
Charles to come down. In a few mo
ments that gentleman appeared.
"Mr. Charles," said Mr. Mitchel,
would it be possible for me to enter
tlieso vaults without your knowledge?"
It would be impossible for anv oue
to enter here without my knowledge,"
said Mr. Charles.
"You keep my key, do you not?"
"Have I ever taken it out of this
Then you think it impossible that I
should have been ablo to have a dupli
cate key aud to have entered here with
ont your knowledge?"
"An utter impossibility, sir."
"Can you remember when I was here
"Certainly. It was about two weeks
ago, when you told me that you were
going to Boston.
"Thank yon very much, Mr. Charles, l
That is alL " Mr. Charles retired and
Mr. Mitchel looked at Mr. Barnes with
u smile, saying:
"You see you are wrong again. The
jewels were stolen yesterday morning,
and I have not been to this place since,
nnd thoreforo could not have placed
thrmi in this box. Are you satisfied?"
'No. If you were able to commit the
robbery on the train while I watched
your section all night, and to have suc
ceeded in getting the jewels away al
though yon were searched, yon are in
genious enough to have found a way of
getting here without tho knowledge ol
Mr. Charles. Or, ho may be paid to lie
for yen. I feel too sure that these are
the gems to be so readily convinced to
So you did watch me that night
Well, I am sorry you had so much trou
ble. I must give you further proof?
Very good. Examine these. " Ho took
out a package of letters and from tbem
extracted a bill of sale, dated five years
previous, in which was once more an
accurate description of the jewels and
case. In addition there was pinned to it
a receipt from the New York custom
house for tho duties paid, which paper
was also dated back. This was evidence
which Mr. Barnes could not refute.
Plainly this particular set of jewels be
lougivl to Mr. Mitchel.
"That is sufficient It would be folly
to arrest you when yon could show those
documents to any judge ana ue released.
At the same time I shall not forget the
coincidence of these two lists, and that
one of tho button."
"By the way, Mr. Barnes, would yon
mind saying where you found that but

"No wonder you valued it I am sur
prised that yon shonld have presented it
to Miss Remscn." There was a twinkle
in Mr. MitcheTs eye which annoyed Mr.
Eanies, but ho made no reply. Mr.
Mitchel continued :
"In consideration of your not placing
me nuder arrest, Mr. Barnes, I will
give you a hint. I made that wager
with my friend Randolph yesterday
morning that is to say, Dec. 2. I have
until Jau. 2 to commit the crime about
which tho bet was made. Shonld you
ccine to tho conclusion that I am not
guilty of cither of those now engaging
your attention it mieht enter vonr head
tbat I still have a crime on"a&id, and
it might pay yon to watch me. Do you
catch the idea?"
"There is little danger of yonr com
mitting, any crime daring the
month without my knowing it," said
"Now let us change the subject Do
yon see this ruby?" taking a large ruby
from the case before them. "I am

the admiration of all eyes at her first
season's functions, occasionally elicits
more than a passing thought of the
beauty and brilliance of her appearance.
To the fond mamma, with a daughter or
so of her own coming on, she is a matter
of some speculation as to the cost of her
production. It is a matter of stern fact
that the debutante's first season is usual
ly rather an expensive affair, .and the
sums spent on the bud, even by those who

The effect of European clothing upon
Japanese wouieu is quite remarkable.
for whenever it is adopted modern man
ners aud customs usually go with it.
The educated Japanese say that when a
native woman adopts modern dress she
insists upon tbe same treatment and
courtesies that her sisters in Europe re
ceive. It is a curious fact that when a
woman is dressed in tho Japanese cos
tumo her husband always precedes her
when entering a room or iu walking the
streets and treats her as Japanese bus
bands generally treat their wives that
is, like servants. But when the samo
woman puts on modern dress the condi
tions are reversed. Her husband pays
her the same deference that European
and American husbands show their
wives and recognizes her as an equal.
Therefore dress reform has had a power
ful influence iu the advancement of
Japanese women, and those who have
embraced Christianity and are laboring
for the emancipation of their sex aro all

ly to promote the reform that is going
on m tbe home and the wardrobe. Chi'

A BRITON'S LUGGAGE.
ATTEMPTS OF AMERICAN IMITATORS
TO INTRODUCE IT HERE.
teaaa sad Bold Alls Tbe asaggac ee a
Steaaaahip Wharf It Stady Tbe Trav

As the traveling Briton is known in
this country by his luggage, so the
American woman was once hated in
Europe because of her Saratoga trunk.
The world has escaped the general
doption of tbe Saratoga trunk, but a
worse thing seems possible, as British
luggage threatens to become interna
tional. Even now yon may buy in this
town all the impedimenta with which
the traveling Briton cumbers himself
and bedevils the rest of mankind. A
Broadway trunkmaker has for some
years past undertaken to fix the thral
dom of these things upon his fellow
country men and women, and many
traveling Americans, especially the
wealthy and fashionable, are to be rec
ognized by the multiplicity of British
mpedimenta that they carry to and fro
in their frequent journeyings between
tbe old world and tbe new. More curi
ous still, those clever and imitative Jap
anese have begun to produce British
luggage identical with the original in
the minutest details, even down to hand
sewed straps on leather trunks, port
manteaus and the like ; but, drolly
enongh, the whole outfit is merely a pa
per counterfeit of the real thing.
American imitators of things British,
lacking the fine humor of the Japanese,
have made no substitution of light ma
terial for heavy, but have taken on the
full burden of ponderous British hat
boxes, portmanteaus, rugs, bags, hold
alls and even bathtubs. It was a travel
ing American who gave to tbe world an
account of a refreshing scene on board
a Mediterranean steamer bound to Tan
gier or some such Mohammedan port of
north Africa. A British passenger with
bis bathtub had nearly pestered the life
out of a meek, coffee colored Moham
medan, who accepted the Briton's curses
without a sign of reproach, but when
in the course of getting the luggage
ashore the precious bathtub fell over
board aud sank like lead, the harmless
follower of the prophet was seen to
pause in his work and dance gleefully
upon the deck, exclaiming in trinmpb,
'Oh, Mr. Goddam, Mr. Goddam!" It
is since that incident that traveled
Americans in their aping of British
ways have accepted even the burden of
A study of baggage at a steamship
wbarf or even at a large railway station
in New York is an instructive lesson as
to the cosmopolitan character of the
city. There is one article of British
luggage that seldom survives more than
oue journey within the limits or the
United States and sometimes gets no
farther inland than the New York hotel
at which the traveler makes his first
stop. This article is the little trunk or
box of japanned tin much used by trav
elers in Great Britain. The flimsy trifle
hardly survives tbo first encounter With
tbe American .baggage handler, and
after the first journey of COO miles in
this country is battered out of all re
semblance to its original rectilinear self.
It is an article of luggage not suitable
to the exigencies of American travel.
A pathetic feature of the baggage at
the railway stations that are doorways
to the west is the immigrant s luggage.
Sometimes it is a mattress from the
steerage wrapped about the few belong
ings of the new made American. Again
it is the corded box of the Irish, English
or Scotch immigrant It will be recalled
how important a preliminary to Char
lotte Bronte s journeyings out into the
great world from her Yorkshire home
was the cording of her box. The corded
box is as rare among the luggage of an
American traveler as the old hair trunk,
though both are occasionally seen. The
seaman's locker, rectilinear for a stable
stowage and strong against accidents,
figures in the luggage at steamship
wharves. One knows instinctively its
contents of old clothes, protographs,
curios, tobacco and long treasured let
ters from home and tbe array of pic
tures from the illustrated papers pasted
on the inside of the lid.
The elaborate dressing cases that
some Americans and an well to do
Englishmen used to travel with are go
ing out of fashion. It is almost a neces
sity that the traveler with this pretty
piece of luggage take along a valet, for
the thing wejghs like so much lead and
is too precious to be trusted to the ten
der mercies of the baggage department
Tbe traveling desk also has nearly dis
appeared, though some ingenious trunk
makers now produce trunks that open
so as to form desks. The luncheon
hamper that used to accompany every
traveler across this continent in the
days before dining cars came into use
has almost entirely disappeared. The
California millionaires of early trans
continental travel carried enormous and
richly laden hampers and dispensed of
ten a princely hospitality to their fellow
travelers. Tbe dinner hour on board
transcontinental train was a picturesque
incident of travel in those days. Tbe
traveling Briton iu Europe still some
times carries his luncheon hamper, and
it is often one of the nuisances of Euro
- Some of the English theatrical com
panies have become so used to traveling
in America that they have adopted our
methods with baggage. . They accept
with grace the great American trunk,
dispense with tbe hatbox, the bathtub,
the rugs, shawl straps and the rest and
calmly their belongings carted off
by a stranger, who leaves behind as evi
dence only a bit of brass bearing a few
letters and numbers. New York Sun.
