A CHANCE OBSERVATION.
no day while studying sun spots with my
telescope whit was a foe and powerful in
strument, It occurred to me to fit my terres
trial eye piece to the tube and amuse myself
looking around the country. I had fre
quently tested the powor of my glass by read
ing the time on a church clock in a neighbor
ing town, and counting lightning rods on
distant buildings aud in various other ways,
and I never tirud of making fresh testa,
On this day 1 bad beu through my rou
tine, and, while sweeping the glass slowly
around for fresh objects of interest, I saw,
through a vista in a dixtant piece of woods,
two men carrying a small but seemingly
heavy trunk. '
I know the woods perfectly, having become
familiar with every square yard of it in my
The sight of two men carrying a trunk in
the woods was singular enough to excite my
curiosity. . I speculated on their probable er
rand, and, remom tiering that there was a
railroad Btation not far from there, I decided
that they were on their way to Intercept a
As I watched, the two men, putting the
trunk down and using it for a scat, began an
animated conversation, which, I Judged, was
in argument. aly opinion was based on their
features and facial expressions, which 1
sould see plainly.
One of the men wsa much tailor than the
thr, much better dressed, and had much
liner features. The other, who won of low
stature, but very powerful looking, owing to
great breadth of shoulders and depth of chest,
was dressed like a laborer.
I could see these men so plainly that it
teemed strange that I could not bear their
voices; and I felt so much like an eavesdrop
per that when they started simultaneously
and looked in my direction I instinctively
shrank back to avoid observation.
They must have heard some noise which
startled them, for they rose quickly and
stood in attitudes which betokened expect
ancy. They stood thus alert, watchful and
apparently listening, for a few instants, and
then resumed their ts, as if what had dis
turbed them was no longer an object of
The tall man soon rose, in a decisive
tort of way, and the other, rather reluctantly,
as I thought, walked away. I concluded
toai to iaii man naa sent nun back tor sonyj
forgotten piece of baggage. It seamed turc-
ural that the relations of the two men should
be those of master and servant; but I could
not understand the equality indicated by
the mutual labor of carrying the trunk, or
the apparently familiar air of discussion.
Io; I was mistaken in my surmise; the
servant, If he were such, had not gone more
than a few steps, for her he was again,
bearing a pickax and spade.
The tall man in the meantime had been
walking about as if selecting a spot to bury
the trunk, for he pointed to a large hollow
beside a granite bowlder, where the servant
began digging, after having cleared away the
leaves which had collected there.
While the servant was digging the master
sat on the bowlder watching Mm at work,
and smoking a cigar which I saw him take
from a pocket cigarette case and light.
When the hole was ready the two men
lifted the trunk Into it and the short one cov
ered it with earth he had thrown out and
then carefully covered the place with leaves.
The spot selected was a good one for the pur
posay aa the hollow merely looked a little
shallower than before.
Aftsr the short man had carefully con
cealed the tools beneath a projecting part of
the rook and filled the crevice with leaves,
the two held a short conversation and sep
arated, going in different directions, the tall
man toward the railroad station and the
other in the direction from which they had
come with the trunk. Just as the men dis
appeared I heard steps coming up the observ
I drew a long breath, as one does after hav
ing finished a chapter in an interesting book,
and, turning from my glass, saw a servant
bringing me a telegram. It bore the an
nouncement of a near relative's death, audit
drove from my mind all thought of the oc
currence which had just engrossed my atten
tion so thoroughly.
As toon as I could get a train I was on my
way to a distant city, where I had to repre
sent my family at the funeral of my late
Circumstances connected with business per
taining to my relative's estate detained me
somewhat more than a month.
Soon after my return home I heard of a
robbery which had been committed in the
neighboring town of a month or more
Hr. Hammond, a wealthy gentleman, who
owned a fine place on the bank of the
river, had been robbed of several thousand
dollars' worth of Jewelry, silverware and
other things, amorg which was a very fine
collection of precious stones, both cut and
2o trace of the stolen articles had been
found, nor had any clew to the identity of
the burglars been discovered.
Finding, by comparing dates, that the rob
bery was committed the night before I Mt
home, I Jumped at a corclusion; the men is
the woods whom I hod seen Hn; the
strange burial of a trunk were the robbers,
and were burying their plunder on the day
following the rubbery.
I had spoken to no one of what I taw that
day; in fact, I did not remember thinking of
that scene again until I beard of Mr. Ham
Thinking it a duty to inform Mr. Ham
mond of what I had seen I drove over to
the next day, and called at his house, al
though personally wo were unknown to tach
I was ushered into the parlor by tb ser
vant, who took my card to his master, and I
waited some time for his appearance. While
thinking over what I should say by way of
introduction to the story I bad come to tell I
was startled by seeing before mo in the door
way one of the very men I had seen bury the
trunk. It was the toll, well dressed one.
Baf ore I had recovered from the shock of
surprise caused by the sight of him, he ad
vanced with the ease of a well bred host and
welcomed me, calling my name, and putting
the matter beyond a doubt that this was Mr.
"1 am very sorry to have kept yon waiting
so long, Mr. Brainard," said he,t sating himself
near ma, "but I nave been busy with tome
' men who have been out hunting for my mias
ing gardener, who disappeared so myste
riously the day before yestorday. You may
have beard about itf
There was no doubt that this was Mr.
Hammond, the owner of the house; but what
ahnriM I aay to himf Tell him that I had
sen him In the woods that day helping to
bury the treasure of which he had been
robbed I No; that was too absurd.
Not being able now to speak of the motive
far my call, I decided to answer his last
wards and trust to the drift of the conver
sation to help me. Bo I answered rather
"No, 1 bad not heard of your gardener's
disappearance; bat J.beard .last night for the
first time of the robbery that occurred here
about a month ago."
"Tee; that was as mysterious and inex
plicable as the disappearance of the gardener ;
but the latter occurrence has so engrossed my
attention for the past two days as to put the
former almost out of my mind."
"What sort of a looking man was your
gardener f" I asked, not knowing what to say,
but wishing to say something. -
"A rather striking looking man on account
of his powerful physique. He was not a tall
man, being a trine under the average height,
in fact; but from his hips up he was one of
the strongest looking men I ever saw. Hare,
I can' show you much better than I can de
scribe; how be looks."
Rising, Mr. Hammond walked to the corner
of his room and returned with a photograph
of his house. The gardener had been taken
in the view, and there he stood the Very man
whom I saw in the woods burying the trunk.
I could not mistake that figure and face. A
mall head surmounted the shoulders. The
face was plainly distinguishable in the pic
ture, and I could, without difficulty, identify
it as the one 1 hod seen through my telescope.
Mr. n&raniond probably noticed my criti
cal examination of the picture, for he broke
the silence which lasted during my long
scrutiny by asking:
"Did you ever happen to sea -him, Mr.
"Yes," said I, "and under circumstances so
peculiar that to tell you about It was the sole
object of this oalL"
"I did not know until now," I continued,
"that he was your gardener, or that he bad
disappeared; but the day after the robbery
at your house I saw this man," tapping the
photograph with my finger as I spoke, "with
another man, in a piece of woods not far from
bare, carrying a trunk containing something
heavy, and I saw this man dig a hole and
bury the trunk."
"Another man, do you sayf What sort of
a looking raanf asked Mr. Hammond,
"By no means so striking in bis individu
ality," I replied. "He was taller than the
gardener, I should say"
"And his face; did you sec that? Could
you recognize himT
"No," said I, answering the last question
only. "I did not tell you that I saw the
whole affair with my telescope from my ob
servatory in I had hoen studying sun
spots, end, by the merest chance, I was look
ing around the country with my terrestrial
eye piece when I happened upon this scene in
It may bavo been my imagination which
made me think Mr. Hammond breathed more
u cat you nave told me does much to
clear up the mystery both of the robbery and
the disappearance of the gardener. Strange
that wt should not have thought of the rela
tions tbtoe two events might bear to each
other! But we had never suspected John in
the slightest degree. To be sure, we hare
had him only a few months, but he has been
sober, industrious and apparently trustwor
thy in every way.
"We were much puzzled by the fact that
the entry was made without violence. After
what you have told me, it is very easy to ss
I dW not know what to think of Mr. Ham
mond's coolness in tho matter. Was It all
feigned; or was I dreaming I I began to
doubt that I had seen the gardener, even ; yet
there was his likeness in my hand and here
was the other man I hod seen, sitting before
mo. Perhaps there might be some reason
why Mr. Hammond wished these Jewels to
disappear, and perhaps, after having used
his gardener to secrete them, be bad quietly
sent him away, knowing where to find
when he wished.
"By the way, Mr. Erainard, do you think
yon could go to that spot in the woods?"
"Yes Indeed; I am familiar with every
square foot of that ground, and have been
many times at that very place. If you like,
I will show you Just where it is."
"The very thing I was about to request If
not too great a tax on your time and kind
ness, I would like to have you go with me,
and show me where the rogues buried my
Jewels. Ah ! Mr. Erainard, you do not know
how much I feel the loss of those. No one
buta collector can appreciate that part of It"
His eyes fairly sparkled with enthusiasm aa
hespokoof his collection and tried to make
me understand that the beauty and rarity
which his specimens possessed were seldom
equaled even in public collections.
"Of course," said ho, "there will be no
chance of recovering anything ; but you know
we might find soue clew at the spot where
the things were buried which would lead to
the apprehension of the robbers. Can we
"No; the shortest and best way, as it seems
to me, is to take a boat and drop down the
river to the nearest point and walk from
We did so Immediately, and when wo ar
rived at the place whore I intended to
leave the boat Mr. Hammond exclaimed:
"Why, this Is the very spot where the boat
was found when we were searching for the
gardener I It was the finding of the boat
which led to the theory that John had come
down hero to bathe, had been taken with
cramps, and drowned. I have not favored
that theory at all. John was not the sort of
man to be drowned while swimming."
I was almost persuaded by the man's man
ner and bis eridont willingness to go to the
place that he was Innocent of deceit
"I am afraid this means that yoa wfll never
see your collection again, Mr'. Hammond," I
said. "Hie disappearance of th gardener
and the finding of the boat here are proof
enough to my mind that he came hare and
dug up the treasure and went off with it"
"Of course, of course; I dont expect to
find anything herei but we may find a clew."
When we arrived at the opening In the
woods and saw the bowlder on which I had
seen Mr. Hammond sitting that day, the
scene of a month ago came back so vividly
that again I felt sure that this was the man
whom I saw. I could not understand his self
possession. Was he doing all this for a blindt
He looked with much interest when I point
ed out to him tho top of my observatory,
just peeping over the trees, In the d'-naw,
"How fortunate that yon were studying
sun spota that day, Mr. Erainard; but for
that it would all have been a mystery still."
Then turning to the rock, be continued:
"Is this the placer
"Yes." said I, somewhat surprised that he
should have asked; for I was very sure I had
not told where the trunk was burled.
Trying not to show that I was surprised, I
"Let us look this place over carefully be
fore disturbing any of the leave or earth."
We did so, and found nothing.
"Now we will see if the trunk bat been
dug np. I think if it bad been the place
would not have been so carefully recovered."
I then looked for the tools under the rock
and found them without difficulty. I went
to work immediately, and began to scratch
away the leave, preparatory to digging,
when I saw something glitter among the
"Hal A clew!" I exclaimed, stooping to
pick It up.
It was an old fashioned watch key a large
oval pieoe of chalcedony, set in gold. Hold
ing It up for Mr. Hammond to see, I said:
"This may lead to the discovery of the rob
bers, and possibly to the recovery of your
' He was silent - .
Looking np from the key In my band, X
saw that be was deathly pale and trembling
violently. . , . .
"So," I thought, "at last your self
don deserts you.' .
. Feeling sure tl tat the key belonged to him
and that he had dropped it there, I said:
' "That did nor belong to the gardener,
"No," he anstred, almost in a whisper;
"that belonged to my father, and to my
grandfather before him." .
"Oh! Then i; was among the stolen
Jewelry! The rogues dropped it when they
buried or dug up the trunk." '
"No; it was not among the stolen. things,"
Mr. Hammond rt plied, in a measured tort of
way. There was something about the tone
of his voice which had a sadness in it, I
Not liking to watch his discomfort, I began
digging enwgoti-ally. I had not dug far
when the spade struck something soft and
yielding, yet wi$. resistance enough to stop
the spade. I struck it again, and this time I
uncovered what a ppeared to be cloth, and the
next stroke shoved it to be the sleeve of a
man's coat, with a ghastly band protruding
I jumped back with a cry of horror. At
tbo 8amo instant a similar exclamation
escaped Mr. Ham Bond's lips.

"And the haegman," added Mr. Ham
mond, in a whlspt r.
My first thought was of tho missing par
doner, aud 1 belie ?ed I was in the presence of
the murderer as v -ell as the murdered. Could
it be possible? If so, why had he come hero
and let the disocverybe made! Moreover,
what motive coul J have induced him to kill
the gardener I Th e thoughts flashed through
my mind rapidly.
Second thought-, caused me to look more
closely at the doe d baud. Perhaps this was
not the gardeuer lifter all
No, it was not; most certainly, this band
never did any work ; tho fineness of the skin

This wonderful lJcenees accounted for rev
cruel misjudgtnenl of Mr. Hammond.
Yes; I could see that this man was older
looking than Mr. Hammond, qpw that I ex
amined his face. Death hfffl changed it
somewhat but I could swear to the identity
of this man and t'a j man who sat smoking a
cigar on the rock.
"Who is heP 1 asked, foaling sure Mr.
Hammond coul J aiswer me.
"Hilled by the g:ir doner T I said.
"Yes; I fear so, and all for those miserable
jewels. I must tL you a verr sad story, Mr,
Erainard, in order to explain this to you.
"My poor brotl.er, here, was even more
fond of jewels than I, and had a remarkable
collection of his own, although mine excelled
his in many particulars. Our mother, who
yes, I must tell ym died insane, had the
same passion for jewels, and I think trans
mitted it to us. I have no doubt that my
brother, in his maria to add my specimens to
his own, bribed my man whom he may have
sent here months ago far this purposes to
assist him. I feci sure that John killed him
to get the jewels, an weO as the bribe.

buried in the famfl;r lot after a coroner's in'
