JIMMY MAGUIRE'S LAST JOB.
Copyright. 1K'3. by T. C. MeClure.
When Jimmy Magnire by which,
name they knew him at McCoy's
came downstairs into the office carry
ing a suit case of considerable weight
and wearing ou his freckled face an air
of virtue whi.-h was glaringly artificial,
the clerk behind the desk looked him
over carefully and then deliberately
d repined one eyelid.
At McCoy's bote!, which is near the
water front, ihe guests are very seldom
questioned on any matter, hut on this
particular afternoon there was no one
save the clerk in the office when Jim
my entered. It was because the clerk's
acquaintance with Jimmy extended
over a period of seven years that the
gentleman liehind the desk inquired
"Anything on. Jimmy?"
"I'm getting my clothes pressed for
Sunday." said Jimmy meekly.
The clerk laughed spasmodically.
'Anything funny in that?" Jimmy
inquired jieevisLIy. "Can't 1 get my
clothes pressed for Sunday?"
"Course. Jimmy, course," the clerk
tittered. "Oolng to get 'em pressed in
"Maybe," said Jimmy, walking over
to a rack of time tables ami spreading
out a folder.
Two hours later Jimmy Magnire and
his suit case were speeding through ihe
early evening dooui mi a southbound
train. The smoker was nearly desert
ed, find iu the dim liht of the lamps
Jimmy was examiuing :i plan crudely
drawn on the back of an envelope. In
one place on the rough iixip was a
heavy cross, and near it was tltawn an
arrow, along whose shaft ran these
words: "Alley here. Enter third win
dow from this end."
Jimmy folded the envelope carefully
and placed it in an inner pocket. Then
he lay back and dozed until the brake
man called "Redpathl" Jimmy caught
up the suit case ami alighted.
He went down the dark street from
the station, took the first left, then the
second right, as the map had directed,
and suddenly stopped before a squat
brick building. In the dim light of a
neighboring street lamp he lead the
tarnished gilt sign beneath the cornice,
"Redpath County Loan and Construc
tion Company." He went to the rear
and found the alley indicated on the
map. He also found the third window
which was mentioned. He pulled out
ids wait b.
"Onarter past 10," he mused. "Whole
town's iu bed probably. This is too
In a few moments Jimmy was inside
jind standing before the heavy door of
a vault which be was examining crit
ically. "Dynamite nothing." he mused to
himself. " 'Twon't take me thirty min
utes to ojien that."
Jimmy went swiftly and quietly to
work. In just twenty-six minutes from
the time la; opened the suit case he
swung open the door of the vault. He
took one step forward and then stag
gered back, for out of the vault tot
tered a young woman, who stood be
pide him swaying to and fro. Jimmy
sprang forward and caught her just
as she fell.
He laid her gently on the lioor, with
bis coat beneath her bead. Then he
brought water from h faucet be found
in the inner office and deftly laved her
wrists and lemples. I 'reset) tly she
opened her eyes and sat tip.
"1'retty narrow squeak that," said
"W here here
tire the rest?" she
a chair and lifted
her into it.
'T know all about it," he said sooth
ingly. Vim work here, and some one
accidental!. lm ketl you in the vault at
closing time. I confess 1 didn't ex
pect to iind yen in there when 1 opened
it. I came of my own accord, you un
derstand, for quite another purpose."
"Oh!" she gasped and regarded him
with wide opened eyes. "It was just
in time for me anyway. I couldn't
have lived iu there much longer."
Jimmy had risen and was putting
bis toois in bis suit case, after which
he shut the door of the vault.
"I have interrupted your your busi
ness." she said.
Jimmy smiled. He noted she was a
very pretty i r 1 . There was som -thing,
too, in the way she accepted the situa
tion that won his admiration.
'"Really. he said. "I'm not in the
mood for work tonight. If you feel
able to stay alone here for a moment
I'll call a carriage to take you home."
The jiirl gave him a grateful look.
"I didn't realize there were gentle
men in your your profession." she
said. ' Rut I fear you'll run too much
risk in getting the carriage. You'd bet
tor not go."
Nonsense." laughed Jimmy and dis
apieared through the window.
It was two years from the night that
Jimmy M.iguire and his suit case left
McCoy's that Mr. Andrew Rider "Si
lent Andy." more commonly opened a
letter in the office of the same hotel
and read as follows:
