Taking the magnifying monocle that
Kent held out, the artist scrutinized
the lines of the picture.
"By Jove! Ttou're right." said he.

"Badly drawn; that's all."

Martindale Center was small, the sta

had been in that afternoon and made
such a purchase.
"Then be must have discovered
something after I left him." said Kent
to Sedgwick, "for he never could have
kept his secret if he'd had it then."
"But what motive could he have?"
cried the artist-
"Just mischief probably. That's
enough motive for bis sort." Turning
to the storekeeper. Kent added. "Do
you happen to know tow Mr. Dennett
spent the early part of this afternoon?"
"I surely do. He was up to Dim
mock's rummage auction, an' he got
something there that tickled him like a
feather. But he wouldn't let on what
"The original!" said Sedgwick.
"What does Dimmock deal in?"
"All kinds of odds and ends. He
scrapes the country for bankrupt sales
an' has a big auction once a year.
Everybody goes, l'ou can find any
thing from a plow handle to a second
hand marriage certificate at his place."
"We now call on Elder Dennett."
That worthy was about closing up
shop when they entered.
"Don't your lump work right yet.
Professor Kent?" he Inquired.
"Perfectly." responded the scientist.
"We have come to see you on another
matter, Mr. Sedgwick and I."
"First let me thank you." said Sedg
wick, "for the curious work of art you
left at my place."
"Hay-ee?" Inquired the elder, with a
"Don't take the trouble to lie about
It," put in Kent. "Just show us the
original of the drawing which you
traced so handily."
The town gossip shifted uneasily
from foot to foot. "How'd you know
I got the picture?" he giggled. "I
didn't find it myself till I got back
from the auction."
"Never mind the process. Have you
the original here?"
"Yes." snld Elder Dennett: and. go
ing to his desk, he brought back a
square of heavy bluish paper, slightly
discolored at the edges.
"That's a very good bit of drawing."
said Sedgwick as be and Kent bent
over the paper.
"But unsigned." said his companion.
"Now. Mr. Dennett, whom do you sup
pose this to be?"
"Wby. the lady that stopped to talk
with Mr. Sedgwick and was killed in
"Then why did you leave out this
earring in copying the picture?"
"Aw well." explained the other in
ome confusion, "she didn't have no"
earrings on when I seen her, and it
looks a lot more like without it"
"How much money would you take
"About $5, I guess." replied the oth
er in a bold expulsion of breath.
At this moment Sedgwick, who bad
been studying the picture in the light,
made a slight signal with his hand,
which did not escaie Kent
"Five dollars is a big price for a
rough pencil sketch." said the scien
tist. "I'd have to know more of the
picture to pay that for it Where did
you find it?"
"In this book. I bought the book at
Dimmock's rummage auction." He
produced a decrepit, loosely bound edl-
tion of the Massachusetts Agricultural
Reports. "The picture was stuck iu
between the leaves."
"No name in the book." said Kent
"The flyleaf is gone. But here's the
date of publication 1S30."
"That would be Just about right,"
Baid Sedgwick, with lively Interest
"Itigbt for what?" demanded Den
nett Before there was time for reply Kent
had pressed a five dollar bill Into his
hand, with the words:
"You've made a trade."
"Wait" protested the elder. But the
sketch was already in Sedgwick's pos
session. "It's an Elliott" said that gentle
man. "I'm sure of it I've seen his
sketches before, though they're very
rare, and there's an unmistakable
touch about his pencil work."
"In that case." said Kent suavely.
"Mr. Dennett will be gratified to know
that he has sold for $ 3 an article worth
fifty times that"
The Aid of the Stars.
nEY left the elder groaning at
his door and went to look up
Dimmock, the rummage man.
But he was wholly unable to
throw any light on the former owner
of the reports in which the drawing
had been tucked away. There the in
vestigation seemed to be up against a

"Here's a portrait antedating 1S30 of

"If you ask roe." said Kent slowly.
-I should aay. rather, an Imitation."
Further lie would not say, but in

ringing with the weary persistence or
the long unanswered. To Kent's query

Sedgwick set the Elliott sketch l-
sjJe tjie copy and compared tueiu for
a time. Then he fell to wandering
desolately about the studio. Suddenly
he turned, walked over to his friend
and laid a hand on bis shoulder.
"Kent, for the love of heaven, can't
you do something for me?"
"You mean about the girl?"
Sedgwick nodded. "I can't get my
mind to stay on anything else. Even

the heart out of me."

"Bring it on. I'm ready."

doesn't excite any profound emotion in
me except concern for your sanity."

Kent "However, I'm not sure I shall

"Wilfrid Blair having officially died, as
I per specifications, today."
Trout are a tradition rather than a

indeed, consider them a myth. Hope

however, and a fisherman, duly equip
ped, might have been observed testing
the upper reaches of the stream on
the morning of July 10. Although bis
rod and tackle were of the best, hts
apparel was rough, not to say, scrub
by. An old slouch hat was drawn down
over his forehead and staring blue
glasses sheltered his eyes against the
sun. which was sufficiently obscured
for most tustes by a blanket of gray
cloud, promising rain.
The rumble of a vehicle distracted
his attention, and he looked up to ob
serve with curiosity a carriage full of
strangers pass across the bridge. The
strangers were all In black. The an-

continue his hopeful progress toward

papers bad formally designated the

aid. Lawyer Adam Bain, who seemed
to have his fingers on the pulse of all
the county's activities, had informed
Kent that telegraphic summonses had
gone out to a few near relatives and
that the relatives, together with a
clergyman, were expected that morning.
For a patient hour longer Kent's
questing flies explored unresponsive
nooks and corners. At the end of that
time he sighted a figure coming from
Hedgerow house and dodged into a
covert of sumac. The glass brought

lifted his rod again. By the time the

was close to the obstructing fence.
He could bear the faint solemn mur
mur of the words. Then came the
lowering of the casket The onlooker
marked the black and silver sumptu
ousness of it and thought of the rough
hemlock box that inclosed the anony
mous body in Annalaka churchyard.
And as his fly met the water he smil
ed a little, grim, wry smile.
It was over soon. The black clad
group drifted away. One member
paused to glance with curiosity at the
roughly clad angler making his way
up stream, for Kent Judged it wise to
absent himself now. foreseeing the ad

then did Kent snug up his tackle and
take the road.
No sooner had be reached the hotel
and changed Into dry clothes than be
made haste to the Nook and thus ad
dressed Sedgwick. "Now I'm your man
for that tennis match."
Kent played as he worked, with con
centration and tenacity, backing up
technical skill. Against his dogged at
tack Sedgwick's characteristically more
brilliant game was unavailing, though
the contest was not so uneven but that
both were sweating hard as at the
conclusion of the third set they sought

"This particular one has reason to

A few minutes ago she went toward
it with a worm in her beak, hastily
dropped the worm and came out in a
great state of mind; hence I judge
there is some intruder near her home."
"Any guess who it is?"
"Wby. it might be Gansett Jim." re
plied Kent in a louder voice. "Though
it's rather stupid of him to pick out a
bird inhabited bush as a hiding place."
