IN SPECIAL ROLE
Detective Extraordinary to the
Mayor and His Escapades.
ATTES ALL THE BUEOLAES
One Citizen's Experience With the
Have you run across Mayor Knox's
xpt'eiul detective yet? If not, you aire
Jikrly to at any time after dark, ami
then be prepared to make explana
tions as to who you are and why you
are; likewise 'whence and whither.
Numerous eitizens ehaneinj- to In: on
the puhlie thoroughfares after the
fall :f the shades of evening have
been interviewed by this bright indi
vidual, who, be it said by way of ex
planation, has, it is understood, been
engaged by Kock. Island's enterpris
ing exeeutive to run to earth the per
forators of the frequent burglaries
and roldn-ries that have been
committed in the city of
Jate. His honor has, accord
ing to the information that comes
from semi-official sources, atrain tak
en matters out of the hands of his
chief of police. In other words, lie
has taken up the burglary and rob
bery question with the police direct,
and he is planning to run down in
short, order the lawless element that
has been so conspicuously infesting
To the end sought the mayor has,
so the story goes, secured a detective.
That is to say. he has assigned to one
of his chosen admirers the task of
impersonating Sherlock Holmes in
K.x k island. This individual, who has
a strong political pull, sis he has an
abundance of nerve, is now out on
Ihe lyghways and byways after night
hunting for t he . burglars, and they
will not escape niin if lie sees them
Kvery citizen, whom this represen
tative of the mayor in the police de
partment discovers, is liable to lw
shadowed, and may be obliged to
submit to giving a satisfactory ac
count of himself into the bargain.
The other night an up-town cill.cn
who was hurrying home noticed
someone skulking along in the shad
ows a short distance behind him. and
Wing within half a block 111 home,
hastened his steps. He was some
what alarmed when he observed the in
dividual who had been shadowing
him, start after him on a dead run.
The citizen was near enough home to
get in before his pursuer overtook
him. and had just closed the dooi
when the man who hail been follow
ing him rushed up the steps and
pounded violently on the door. Open
inir it. the citizen, now thoroughly
aroused and indignant, demanded ex
planation of the intrusion.
"You've got a burglar in your
house." declared 1he stranger be
' -llov do you know I have?" de
manded the citizen.
"IJecnuse I have followed him for
blocks, and he finally ran away from
me and came in here. Let me hae
him, quirk! I am Mayor Knox's spe
cial detective, and I expect to catch
a half dozen more burglars tonight
yet.. That is the reason I started out
early and got after the first one I
saw. (iive me him. quick, so I can
take him in."
hereat Mayor Knox's private de
tective rolled back his emit collar
and exhibited a star as big as a pic
pan. as his badge of authority.
The citizen, although at first angry
enough to fight. was now
thoroughly enjoying the experi
ence, and he proceeded to put his
visitor through his catechism. He
learned from the story that was re
lated that the detective hail been hir
ed to bring the active head of tin
police department to shame for the
generally neglected condition of the
city, and that i ne new acquisition had
started out to make a record by
catching burglars by the wholesale.
Came Back for Ills Burglar
After being thus entertained by his
strange visitor for half an hour. Hie
citizen bade him good night, and re
tired. Kut he had scarcely placed his
head on the pillow when there was
an energetic ringing of the door bell.
Going down to see what was the mat
ter he fount! the same individual
"Well, what is it now?" enquired
T forgot my burglar, and came
back for him." was the response, and
the detective (?) was just about
to disclose his star again, when the
citizen, with the suggestion that the
burglar had gone through the chim
ney, closed the door.
And the citizen is now looking for n
summons to appear in the police
court under the charge of concealing
