Tho following incident occurred some
ten years ago in the city of Philadelphia:
Benjamin .Yardley a veteran dotectivo
of this city, was entertaining a fellow
dotectlve
Janios- Gardinqrj
nmnbor of
as a dotcctiv?
Gardiner had como East, to spond tho
O?rj?vuitjs,j^plida?fp i ?inong his old
friends, and Benjamin Yardley was ono
of thoso friends.
turcs on tho Pacific Coast, Mr. Gardi
ner itllude'd ton1 '?slippery customer,"

?^unied{- V'" " ^ r}-x ? '
Then he could, at will imitate the
f?minine voleo tb perfection, although
his n dural voice was a deep baritone
even in apeak lng.
Wino years ago, Gardiner continued,;

imtormg tim premises of an opulent
lady, just before dawn--after tho lady
bad returned from a ball-and, after
Ad mo : mig. Ufe ?.* wit l(i chloroform robbed
her oi.' all lier diamonds, which she liad
worn that nie ht, and securing quito a
sum of money besides, left for parts
unknown
By ?the'description tho lady gavo of
tho burglar, lt was appuient that
"Kl mopy" was the offender, and Gar
ditirr wits del ailed to hunt him up.
Tile slippery fellow, however, left no
trail behind him when ho left tho city,
and from that day ho was seen no moro
ju California.
iViVlnyt reward was offered for his
apprehension?*! asked Yardley.
"Five thousand dollars," was tho
reply. . ,
' And tho valuo 'of tho jowols and
moneyV" pursued the veteran, in a
thoughiful tone.
"?Between forty and fifty thousand."
"Had; ho confederates, think you?"
"It was supposed not. "
"No female, ch?"
"'Not to my knowledge," inplied
Gardiner.
Ya rd ly fell into a train of thought
and while thus employed, his compan
ion glanced over tho paper, Ho finished
this and glancing at Yardley ho was
surprised to lind his friond, usually so
lively, still thoughtful.
"What is it, Bon?" ho asked, "solv
ing h problem?"
"Possibly," was tho laconic roply.
"Tell us all about it,"saidthoothor,
in a bantering tone.
Ytirdly slowly raised his eyes to tho
face of the sneaker and said.
"Gardiner, my boy, what' would you
say if 1 wore to loll you that I bolievo I
could tako you to tho residence of
*'Htumpy?"
Tho California detective jumped from
hi? chair and cried I
"You don't mean it?"
"Ido."
"And you will lead mo to his hiding
placo?" pursued Gardiner, in an ani
mated tone.
"To his placo of rosidonco-yes; but
ho does not hide, to all appearances,"
was the smiling reply,
What name does ho go by?"
Nino years ago ho culled himself
Miss Caroline Horsey,' " said Yardley,
it h au amused sipllo, "but at prosont
i is Known as tliii ?wealthy Mrs Moil

pparcntly so; at all events there is
a maXllvlng willi her representing tho

v,Otht\wiso a female jn disguise as a
double gWd against detection?" ob
served Gar?hior, sententiously.
"PossiblyA returned Yardley, "al

reality a maiiA
"Well, admiting all tbat, ho is of no
consequence," robard tho other, "it

' * "Does lie know your person?" asked
Yardley.
"I. think not," Gardiner replied,
"Yet Jto mako euro I shall assume a
disguise ;whoii tho introduction takes

"Very well," said Yardloy, smiling
again as an idea entered his fertile
brain. "You shall bo introduced, but
dot by mo. I have a friend who will
do that whilo I stand asido and observe
theorfeot."
"What offect?"
"You shall seo."
"Birt toll mo about tho advent of this
moBtdolectablo 'Miss Carolino Dorsoy,"
said Gardiner.
"That was my intention. It can bo
told in a few moments, so to speak,"
returned Yardloy." "Sho carno hore

remained a year, then loft them with
tlio intention of going into the trim

Sho opened a storo and stocked it
well-so well, in fact, as to elicit thc
surprise of hoi* lato employers, wh<
sometimes called on her.
Two years later sho sold oui at a bar

three years, whoo tho 'Wealthy Mr
Augustus Mont aguo put in an appear

^.Tho pair aro then really wealthy?'
Gardiner asked in au earnest tone.
"So ono may judge by their manne
of living," was tho reply.
"Tho result, undoubtedly, of tba
'grand haul' of diamonds,' " tho otho
remarked.
"Quito possible" was tho grim rejoin
dor.
.fWllero do they live, and what ar
their usual habits?"
"Their residence is on West Groe
street, and Mr. Montaguo divides h
timo by visiting the brokers' olllces o
Third shoot, andJabsoni luj-j; himself fe
a period of Tl freo or four days ovoi
fortnight. Tho lady seldom leaves tl
house."
"Possibly on a plundering oxped
tion." observed tho California dote
tiyo, referring to Montaguo.
"Very likely," responded Yardie;
Ob tho following evening Hie Moi
tague's gave a reception, and Messr
Gardiner, Yardloy & Co. woro thor
Tho "Co.," was a quiet genteel your
man whom Yardley found extremo'
useful as a "spotter," and a "shado\
er," in his peculiar lino of busmen
His name was Waller Rainsford, ai
he was generally looked upon asa yum
gentleman of means, inasmuch as 1
dressed well and went much m
society.
"Ho and Mrs. Montaguo woro qui
intimate, and he it was who Hist sn
peeled tho sox of that lady, and so i
formed Mr. Yardley; heneo both
iheso public officers kept a protty sha
eye on tho llctitious fournie, and ul
mutely woro confirmed in their boli
that Mrs. Montaguo was a man in di
guiso, but failed to discover his moth
Mr. Gardiner, howover, furnished t
motivo, ai\d theso three gontleinon nc
resolved to mako a proper investigate
of the matter.
Any ono witnessing the introductio
not being awaro that tlio spurious la
was a man, would never for a momo
have suspected such to bo Hie caf
Tho sweeping bow she maclo wot
have deceived any ono, almost, and t
smile that accompanied it was m<
brilliant and betwitching.
? Yardley stood in tho shadow wh
the parties w>,ro introduced, and d
tinctly saw tho lady givo a porcpptil
start when tho namo .of Mr. G ard ir
of California, foll upon her ears.
"Wo have struck our gamo," was 1
mental observation, and ho was p
fectly correct? for Mrs. Montaguo si
sequently interrogated Walter Bai
ford vory closely in reference to I
gentleman. But that "innoccm
quiotcd lier alarm by saying chat ho n
the gentleman at a botol and bei
fortunato enough to render him a ?lb
service an introduction followed, a
theybecamo mutually pleased with et
other.
Had the lady been aware of tlio r
profession of Rainsford thisox'planat
would not have satisfied lier-sho wo
have regarded it as a "a mado np 1
to sorvo a purpose. But not foi
mouiont suspecting lils avocation,
answers ho gavo to lier quest!
quletod lier fears, and tho moment
alarm subsided.
If was oyidont that "Stumpy" j
acquainted with Detective Gardiner
profession at least, if not acquuin
with him personally.
j Ou tho following day Gardiner obser
ved that ho was "shadowed" by an ap
parent countryman, and shrewdly guess
ed that "Stumpy" was tho omployer of
tho fellow.
lu order to complotoiy hoodwink tho
rogue, Gardluor pretended to make a
numbor of purchases hi Market street
wholesale houses, which fact waa, of
course, mado known to Mrs. Montague,
and was calculated to still furthor quiet
lier fears.
In tho meantime Mr. Montague loft
tho city on his periodical joupnoys, and
was followed by llainsford iii disguise.
When tho latter returned and reported
to his employer ho surprised him not a
little. Mr, Montague Uko his roputcd
wife was a fraud. Ho was simply a big
woman in disguise and was known by
tho demi-monde of Kew York as "Big
Ann" and was a well known prostitute
of Murray street in that city.
Yardley did not apprise his f rlond of
what ho had discovered in reference to
Mr. Moni aguo, but resolved to aid him
in securing tho greater criminal
vStujbpy" firtil, after which, if rho
othor was found guilty of any crime to
tako her al jo into custody.
Gardiner concluded to tako tho ras
cal.during tho absence of Montague, as
it could' ho donn moro quietly, and
Yardley agreed with him, urging him,
hqwevor, to uso tho utmost caution
sinco "Stumpy" was such a slippery
customer.
"? shall bo careful," replied Gardinor,
with a confident smile, as tho pair saun
tered out of Mr. Yardley's residence.
"Condomn that follow," ho immedi
ately added, as ho saw his '.shadow,'
sauntering leisurely along on tho oppo
site side of tho street.
.'Ho is daugorous now," remarked
Yardley, gravely.
"Why so?" tho othor asked.
"Jiecauso ho saw you with mo and
will so report lo "Stumpy," who knows
my profession."
"Ah." cried Gardiner In real alarm.
"I was not. awaro of that; I must act
promptly or hy .lingo ,Stumpy' will slip
away."
Gardiner crossed tho street aftei
laking leave of Yardley, and approach
.cd- tho seaming eouh'. ry mun vtyv \\?t]
just a moment before parted with a boj
with whom he had Peen conversing.
"Gan you tell mo where tho Mayor'.'
oltlco is?" ho asked of tho follow.
"Nix forstay," was tho reply, anil
tho detective was positive that tia
responso was derisively given.
Ho resolved tbereforo to koop him ii
viow until an ofllcer appeared and thoi
give him in charge for an imaginan
offence so as to prevent him from oom
municating with "Stumpy."
This was accomplished very neall:
but tho follow appeared to tako it cooli:
and offered no resistance on hoing ar
rested; only when ho was led away lu
turned to Gardiner, and closing ono eyi
ho rouiurkcd:
"Now you think you'vo dono it?"
Tho detective stared at him, but be
yond that simple remark tho man spok
no moro.
"Confound him, what did ho moan?:
Ga diner muttered, musingly, "ca
Ibero bo any significance in tho words?
He had tho warrant for "Stumpy \s
arrest in his pocket and rosolved to pus
tho matter at oneo.
Ho hastoned to seo Y ard loy an
together they proceeded to tho Moi
taguo mansion. Thoy were admitte
by tho servant who informed thon
however, that madam was indisposo
and could not sor any visitors.
"But our business is very urgent,
Gardinor remarked, "and it is impers
tive that I seo tho lady."
"I will tell her so," was tho quit
response, and tho girl loft tho parlo
Gardinor and Yardley quietly follows
her which she apparently did not ol
servo for sho novar turned her head t
sbo proceeded up tho stairway.
At the chamhor-door, howovor, ' si
turned and a look of surpriso sprat
into her face.
"Why do you follow mo?" oho asko
"To seo your . mistress," was tl
reply from Gardiner.
"This ls ber chamber," rejoined tl
girl, "and you may ontor If ye
choose," saying which sho abrupt
left thom, and they hoard tho froi
door close as if sho had left tho houe
They oponod tho door, some ono w
lying in bed with their back turin
toward thorn, but by tho garment th
supposed it was a femalo-real or pi
tended.
Gardiner approached tho bed abd bi
a hand on tho figure's shoulder, th
uttered an exclamation, and graspii
tho occupant lie drew it forth and Hui
it on tho. door with a muttored cur?
It was a "dummy" and "Stumpy" h
"skipped."
A slippery customer iiideodl "Well
eaid Yardloy, with a emile at 1
! friend's look of dismay.
"Gone but not forgotten," waa tho
prim ?reply, and they dopartod from
that houso in disgust.
"How will you proceed noxt?" asked ?
Yard?oy.
"Knowing my gata? a8 I do I shall
just ranko lip my mmd to do what I,
carno East for-oujoy myself with my

And thus ended this adventure which
promised such grand resulto.

Abram, who became tho father of tho

when ho departod out of Haran; and
Abram took Sarai Iiis wife, and Lot

Tho Tootn Factory;
The domain of tho dentist Ia about to
bo disputed. A great discovery has
been made which will revolutionize the
wholo businoss and emancipate tho suf
ferers. A factory has been established,
with pion ty of capital to back lt, for tho
purpose of making artificial teeth by
machinery. All that any one who ls
troubled with his teeth will have to do
will bo to got thom all pulled out? Thon
lie can purchaseta brand now, machino
made sot and bo exempt from toothache
all tho rest of his life. This is, o?
course, nothing now in tho making and
using of artificial teeth, hut it will be
easily seen that tho manufacture by
machinery presents great advantages.
When tho making of watches by ma
chinery was started, thqr$ wore many
protests that the now way would novor
bo as good as tho old. But tho exact
ness soon attained, and tho convonlonco
of having the parts interchangeable
brought about a revolution, and the
factory watches now rank abovo the
hund-made. The same advantage will
bo had in the factory tooth. If ono set
gets broken, or comos out, an oxactly
similar one can bo ordered from tho
factory at very small cost. If the plate
gots cracked it can he replaced in tho
wino way. All that will bo necessary
will bo to give the number of tho plate
and a new ono, precisely Uko tho old,
will bo sent by return mail.
