TELL-TALE THUMB-PRINTS.
FINGER MARKS OF CRIMINALS
LIFELONG AIDS TO THEIR
DETECTION.
Individual Finger Marks Permanent
Through Life-Adoption of System
for Identification of U. S. Soldiers
and Sailors.
A few weeks ago Inspeetoi
McLaughlin of the New York City De
tective Bureau received remarkable
evidence of the value of thumb-print
Identification. A letter was broujrbt
to him through the mails from London
containing the picture and record of
a noted criminal whose thumb-print,
with his name and description, was
sent to London to test the efficiency
of this new method of recording dis
tinguishing marks of criminals. By
means of the thumb-print alone, the
English police identified the criminal
captured by the New York police,
whose record in England includes eight
imprisonments on charges of larceny.
The prisoner was caught by Inspector
McLaughlin in the corridor of the
Waldorf -Astoria Hotel in April. There
were no charges against him in this
country at the time, but the Inspector
decided that his captive was an En
glish "crook." It was found that two
patrons of the hotel had been robbed
and the prisoner was detained for a
thorough investigation of his case.
Meanwhile the Inspector sent the
thumb-print to London and the reply
brought a photograph of the "crook"
and a duplicate photograph of his
thumb-print and his record.
THE BERTILLON SYSTEM,
For some time the criminal bureaus
of prominent cities have been using
the Bertillon measurement system
which also includes making two pho
tographs of the suspicious character,
but the French system and photo
graphy have fallen short in many
cases, as a scheming criminal can
adopt various subterfuges to cheat the
law, but there Is no way of changing
the character of his thumb-print, for
there are no two people whose thumbs
are exactly alike, and each person has
his own individual thumb-print whose
character remains the same from the
day of birth to the end.
OLD AS THE HILLS.
There is nothing really new in this
mode of Identification, as from time
immemorial the Chinese have known
MAGNIFIED THDMB MARK SHOWING
DISTINGUISHED LINES.
the fact that every man carries on his
finger-tips the proofs of his identity,
and passports in the Celestial land
have consisted of a government
stamped piece of oil paper on which
the traveler has to record his digital
marks before Betting forth on his
journey. So in India, where deeds
transferring land have for centuries
past been signed among the Illiterate
peasantry by a thumb-mark. Within
recent years the government of In
dia has extended this native custom
to postoffice savings bank books, mili
tary and civil pension certificates,
emigrants' contracts, mortgages on
growing crops, and other transactions
where false personation has to be
guarded against or an authenticated
acknowledgment of money received
has to be made. Naturally, also, the
system was promptly adopted for the
Identification of criminals, and it was
an Indian police officer, E. R. Henry,
inspector-general of police in Bengal,
who carried to Englnnd his experi
ences in the (work, and when appointed
S STUBUB ABE NO TWO THTJSEBT PBiNXS
a ar.TKK
chief commissioner of police in Lon
don, introduced the method Into New
Scotland Yard.
FINGER PRINTS NEVER CHANGE.
Finger-marks continue permanent
through life. Injuries may partially
destroy them, but as the injury heals
the original lines reassert themselves
as before. In growing youth the ball
of the finger enlarges; so does the pat
tern, but Its distinctive tracings are
absolutely unchanged, whereas the
Bertillon method is applicable only to
adults, when bone measurements have
become fixed. Yet youthful criminals,
(or their own sake, as well as for
society's are worth watching at every
stage of their career, and the finger
print system is the only means of
identification yet devised that makes
this practicable.
Not only is it virtually impossible
that any man's ten finger-prints, one
after the other, should resemble in
mere general mathematical form each
of those of another man, the chance
against any such coincidence being
calculated by Professor Francis Gal
ton, the eminent anthropologist and
mathematician, as one hundred and
sixty-four million against one, but it
la equally impossible that any two
finger-prints should be identical in
every detail.
Hecently the United States govern
ment has also adopted the thumb
print system for identification of the
sailors and soldiers in service, as this
might become useful not only in
cases of desertion, but also to more
readily identify the bo „es of those
who have fallen on the field of battle.
SHERLOCK HOLMES.
( (Continued from proceeding page).
•what I should do if some sporting kind
o of publisher were suddenly to stride
i in and make me a bid of forty shil
llings or so for the lo* •• When the
b book at last fell Into the hands of Mr.
A Andrew Lang, then acting for Messrs.
L Longmans, Green & Company, the
s success of Micata Clarke was assured,
a and its author's literary career placed
o on a firmer footing. The "Sign of
t the Four" followed in 1889, in which
s story Sherlock Holmes, who had made
h his bow to the public in "A Study In
S Scarlet," reappeared and increased Dr.
D Doyle's rising reputation. His hei.rt,
h however, was in the historical novel,
a and in 1890 he followed up the success
o of Micah with "The White Company,"
i in the preparation of which be read
o one hundred and fifteen volumes,
F French and English, dealing with the
f fourteenth century .in England. His
d delight in the work is expressed in his
o own words: "To Write such books,"
h he once said, speaking of Micah Clarke
a and The White Company, "one must
h have an enthusiasm for the age about
w which he is writing. He must think it
a a great one, and then he must go de
lliberately to work and reconstruct it.
T Then is his a splendid joy."
S STUDY IN SCARLET FOR $125.00.
However, Dr. Doyle may prefer to
write historical romances, and what
ever his personal estimate of his great
detective may be, the fact remains
that in Sherlock Holmes he has
created a character whose exploits are
as familiar as household words, and
who has entered into the very fibre
of Anglo-Saxon life and literature. It
Is actually said that at times Dr.
Doyle has expressed a wish that "r.
Watson had never met Sherlock
Holmes. It i 9 on reoord that he
thought so 'little of "A Study In Scar
let," the story in which Sherlock
Holmes first appeared, that he sold it
outright for $125. The value of wher
lock Holmes has gone up since those
days, however.
Dr. Doyle acknowledges some lr
debtedness to Dupin, the detective in
Poe's short stories, "The Murders in
the Rue Morgue" and "The Turloined
Letter." This is the more interesting
for the reason that in "A Study in
Scarlet," Sherlock Holmes is madje to
speak rather contemptuously of
Dupin's skill and acumen. To quote
Dr. Doyle again: "In work which con
sists in the drawing of detectives
there are only one or two nun Ik s
which one can use, and an author Is
forced to hark back upon them con
stantly, so that every detective must
really resemble every other detec' •
to a greater or less extent. There is
no great originality required In de
vising or constructing such a man,
and the only possible originality which
one can get into a story about a detec
tive is in giving him original plots
and problems to solve, as in his equip
ment there must be of necessity an
alert acuteness of mind to grasp '■s
and the relation which each of them
bears to the other."
CONSTRUCTION OF SHERLOCK.
Dr. Doyle went to work, therefore,
to build up a scientific system in which
everything might be logically reasoned
out Where Sherlock Holmes differed
from his predecessors wta that he had
an immense fund of exact knowledge
upon which to draw, in consequence
of his previous scientific education,
ne was practical, he was sy ematic,
he was logical, and his success in
the detection of crime was to " 9 the
result, not of chance or luck, but of
his characteristic qualities. "With
this idea," says Dr. Doyle, "I wrote
a book on the lines I have indicated,
and produced 'A Study In Scarlet.'
That was the first appearance of Sher
lock; but he did not arrest much at
tention, and no one recognized bim as
being anything in particular. About
three years later, howe r, I was
asked to do a small shilling book for
Lippincott's Magazine, which pub
lishes, as you know, a complete story
In each number. I didn't know what
to write about, and the thought oc
curred to me, 'Why not try to rig up
the same chap again?' I did It, and the
result was 'The Sign of the Four.'
Although the criticisms were frvor
able, I don't think that even then Sher
lock attracted much attention to his
individuality." But this shows Mr.
Doyle's modesty.

Ceoeases la March.
EDITH DOANE
" "Anne! "Whatever in the world "
T The speaker, her fur coat white with
s snow, stood transfixed in the doorway.
" "Crocuses!" she gasped. "Crocuses —
i in early March—with the snow outside
a an inch deep and more to follow! Cro-
c cuses "
W Words failing her, she stepped inside
t the heavy curtains and regarded the
s scene before her with astonished eyes.
lltI It was a pretty room and long, with
a a blazing fire or pine logs at one end;
a a room tnat bespoKe warmth and home
a and comfort. But the newcomer saw
n none of these. It was the mahogany
t table in the centre at which she gazed
h hypnotically, where masses of yellow
c crocuses glowed in reckless prolusion.
T They raised tremendous golaen heads
f from a big brass bowl; they nodded
f from long, slender vases; they flamed
o over the edges of a pewter jug in riot-
o ous confusion.
T The girl standing beside the table
p poked the last slender green stalk into
p place, and, stepping back, regarded her
w work with fine triumph. she turned-a
f flushed face toward the doorway.
" "The only trouble," she said, impres-
s sively, "will be to make him believe
t they grew."
" "Grew?"
" "Yes, grew, naturally," with a vague
w wave of her hand in the direction of
v ie window and the softly whirling
f flakes outside. "He won't believe it."
" "Who won't believe it?"
nn n<."Sf^ aS th^ c l ocus hobby as seriously
a as daddy, and they kept at it until in a
m moment of wild enthusiasm Daddy in-
Marl th n hiS .P rr °CUS came up in
M March. Once " apologetically—
M March^ a crocus the last day of
« «'.^ who " began Dora again.v:
'Daddy saw he doubted it, but he
d didn't care, for by that time he had be-
g gun to believe it himself; so when he
s said he was coming to New York in
M March he invited him out insisted, set
t the date and all. This is the date,
a and,' Anne dimpled, "here are the
c crocuses."
" "Anne," insisted her chum, firmly,
w will you please stop saying 'he' and
h him' and tell me who and what you
a are talking about?"
" "John Rexall," essayed Anne. "The
m man daddy met in camp and liked so
w well that he chummed with him, even
t though he shot more game than daddy
d did himself. He has money and good
l looks and "
" "Crocuses," suggested Dora.
A Anne dimpled again. "If only I could
m make him believe they really grew!"
T The door at the further end of the
r room opened to admit a gray-haired
m man, rugged but kindly featured, who
c came down the room, watch in hand.
A Anne smiled at him across the crocuses.
" "You may Just as well put that watch
o out of sight," she cried, as she placed
a a bowl of flowers on the piano. "No
m more calls to-night, Daddy, in this
s storm, and 'company comin',' too."
S Slipping her arm through her father's
s she led him close to the nodding blos-
s soms. "Pretty fine crocuses—for
M March,".she said, her eyes dancing With
m mischief, as she reached up and be-
s stowed a kiss upon him so vigorous as
t to leave him very little breath for pro
ttest. Dr. Nelson pretended great In-
d dignation. "Tut! tut! It isn't fair to
t take advantage of an old man," he
c chuckled, but his eyes were full of ten
dderness as Anne laid her cheek softly
a against his.
" "You remember Milligan, the flag-
m man?" Dr. Nelson said at last, again
g glancing at his watch.
A Anne nodded.
" "He has been seriously hurt— dying.
I must go at once. I shall be late."
" "There is always somebody " be-
g gan Anne.
" "Exactly!" Dr. Nelson ' thrust his
w watch back into his pocket and smiled
a at her disappointed face.
" "Explain it to John Rexall, and take
g good care of him. With him to look
a after you I shall not worry as to your
s safety." And with a quick goodby he
w was gone.
T The sound of his departing horses'
h hoofs had hardly died away when John-
s son appeared with a telegram.
ii' Fori i'For de doctah. Miss Anne," he an-
n nounced.
A Anne took the envelope from the out-
s stretched tray and opened it.
" "Whom is it from?" queried Dora.
A Anne twisted the missive into a little
y yellow ball and threw it defiantly
a among the crocuses.
" "It is from Mr. John Rexall," she an-
s swered, with as much indignation as if
t that young man had Just been con-
v victed of some.heinous crime, "and it
s says that great and august personage
i is delayed by the storm and will not
b bc here to-night."
" "And you will be left alone "
" "There are the servants. I do not
mmmd,"m mind," returned Anne.
" "But this house is so isolated and the
g grounds so large," Dora deliberated. "I
w will send Tom over to stay .with you,"
s she announced, with the relief of one
w who has solved a knotty problem.
A Anne protested faintly.
" "Yes, I will," Dora insisted. "He is
o only eighteen, but he will be company."
" "Of course I should like it," agreed
A Anne. •
D Dora swept a parting glance over the
r room. On every side flowers gleamed
l ln yellow splendor.
" "When I consider these wasted March
c crocuses," began Dora.
A Anne giggled. "And the florist's bill
f for the same."
A At this Dora gave way and relapsed
i into a helpless fit of laughter, where-
u upon Anne laughed, too, half hysterical-
l ly, helpless to stop —laughed un
ttil the crocuses shook in their tall vases
—and both girls sank into chairs, laugh
iing and breathless.
" "It's a judgment—because I wanted
h hlnuto believe— grew," cried Anne,
w wiping her eyes.
A An hour later Anne descended the
w wide, open staircase. Her trailing gown
h hung in soft, straight lines; a row of
t tiny pearls clasped her throat; some
c crocuses were tucked in her belt, and
o one crocus nestled in her hair.
A At the bottom step Johnson waited.
" "Gentleman to see you, Miss Anne.
I done put him in de library."
■ "What is his name?"
" I dlsremembered to ask him his
n name. He said yo' all was expectln'
h him."
H Her face cleared; Tom, of course.
O Only the firelight illuminated the li
bbrary, casting flickering, ruddy rays
u upon the slender figure that came slow-
l ly toward the centre of the room; a very
s sweet and attractive figure, indeed, it
s seemed to the eyes of the man standing
w waiting in the shadow. Nearer and
n nearer she came, and the man stepped
f forward, offering his hand in easy,
p pleasant greeting, and then stood spell
bbound.
A A vision In soft shimmering white
p pressed close to his side— hand, his
a arm, was grasped In a warm though
u unmistakable hug. "You were a dear,
g good boy to come," the vision said.
" I " he began helplessly.
T The next moment an embarrassed
y young man faced an equally embar-
r rassed young woman with crimson
c cheeks and indignant eyes.
" "Why didn't you speak?" she de-
m manded wrathfully. "I thought it was
T Tom." She stopped in a vain search for
w words with which to annihilate this
p presuming interloper. "You know I
t thought you were Tom," she added in
ddignantly.
" "Would that I were," fervently
t thought the new comer.
C Curiosity tempered the wrath in
A Anne's eyes as she raised them to the
f face above her. The face of a gentle
man, evidently— and extremely good to
look at. Just now amusement strug
gled with admiration in the clear-cut
features, as he stepped forward and
again held out his hand.
"Please forgive me," he began, quite
as contritely as if he really were to
blame. "I did not know— it was so
insufferably stupid of me " He
stopped. ("You are altogether charm
ing," said his eyes.)
Anne's face softened.
"I am sure Dr. Nelson will intercede
for me," he went on, pursuing his ad
vantage.
Anne smiled. "Dr. Nelson Is not at
home. I am his daughter," she said
simply.
"Then we are already old friends,"
declared the man eagerly. "In camp
last September your father— but first
allow me to present myself. lam "
"Mistah Rexall," announced Johnson,
at the library door, bowing pompously
as he held aside the hangings to admit
a slender, dark-eyed man, who ad
vanced a step Into the room and then
stood uncertainly in the dim light.
The surprise on Anne's face was
equaled by that of the man beside her.
He turned with a quick start, glanced
sharply at the newcomer, then stood
motionless in the shadow.
With a most unreasonable sense of
disappointment Anne advanced to wel
come the new arrival.
"Father will be delighted. He has
counted so on your coming — we were
quite distressed over your telegram.
So glad you managed to get here after
all." She forced herself to the usual
conventionalities.
So this was John Rexall, this man
whom she instinctively dreaded — per
haps it was the flickering firelight that
g_ve that shifting gleam to his eyes.
She touched a bell. "A light, John
son," she commanded, half nervously.
"Mr. Rexall, allow me to present "
Her words trailed off into amazed si
lence. The room behind her was empty.
A door closing softly at the further end
where the erstwhile admirer had gone.
One o'clock chimed the tiny time
piece on the mantel. Outside the sound
was repeated somewhere in the dis
tance to graver, deeper tones. Anne
shivered. Two hours had passed since
the household had settled into silence,
but so far no sleep had come to her
eyes. She had not even undressed, but
still sat upon the hearth rug in front of
the fire in her cozy bedroom, staring
into the glowing coals.
It was dreary waiting, but some
vague fear had kept her awake, hop
ing nervously for her father's return,
listening anxiously for the first sound
of his horses' hoofbeats on the gravel
outside. Indeed, if he did not come
soon she had the horrible conviction
that she would scream. In vain she
tried to reason it away, sitting, her face
in her hands, her eyes on the clear
glowing coals. What matter if she in
stinctively distrusted the man her fa
ther had found companionable? Was
that such an extraordinary thing?
What if the man she had found con
genial — "for you know you did like
him," she said to herself, "even if you
did " Here her cheeks supported by
the slim hands grew unaccountably hot.
What if this man had chosen to tak^
his departure suddenly?
Was that so strange? He had come
to see her father, and she herself told
him that her father was not at home.
But reason as she might, the vague
misgiving remained.
At the sound of the clock she shivered
slightly, and getting up from her lowly
position she drew back the curtains of
her window. The storm had ceased,
and the snow lay lightly on branph and
wall; the night was brilliant with moon
light, clear as day, full of hallowed
softness.
She stood for a while, spellbound by
the glory of the scene before her, then
turned again toward the fire. The
crocuses she had worn that evening in
her belt, now lying wilted on her dress-
Ing table, caught her eye. "I forgot to
look at the flowers — if the fire dies down
the library will be too cold for them.
I will attend them now; anything Is
better than waiting here."
She left her room and walked swiftly
along the hall, her soft slippers making
no sound on the floor.
As she reached the staircase a little
sensation of fear ran through her; she
hastened her footsteps and ran hurried
ly along the lower hall, which was al
most as light as day. It was the eerie
time of 'night. Not until she was close
to the library did she notice a tiny
gleam of light creeping from beneath
the door.
"Johnson has left a light for daddy,"
she thought, going steadily on and de
cidedly cheered by the thought that
gloom did not await her.
Pushing open the door very gently,
she entered the room.
At first the light dazzled her sight.
She advanced a few steps, unconscious
ly treading lightly, as she had done all
along, lest she would wake some mem
ber of the household, and then, pass-%
ing her hand over her eyes, looked leis
urely up. The fire was nearly out. She
turned her head, and then — then — she
uttered a faint scream and grasped the
back of a chair to steady herself.
With his back to her — all unaware of

Facing her, beside a window, from
whose curtained recesses he had evi
dently just stepped, covering the other
with the point of a gleaming pistol-bar
rel, stood her nameless cavalier of the
early evening. His eyes. Bright and
steady, were immovably fastened on
the man before him.
"Hands up!" he said.
An inarticulate sound came from the
other man's throat; his face grew livid.
He flung up his hands, palm outward.
"Who the devil are you?" he cried, be
neath his teeth. His eyes were fixed
with deadly hatred upon his foe.
For a moment no sound but that of
the falling embers of the dying fire dis
turbed the stillness that reigned within
the library.
Anne stood motionless, her heart
thumping wildly, wondering what the
end would be. Then, suddenly the si
lence was broken by the distant sound
of horses' roofs coming nearer. A noise
of wheels on the gravel outside, a
quick-spoken order to the driver, and
some one came along the porch, through
the hall and into the room. Anne gave
a quick little cry of relief and joy.
"Daddy!" she cried.
He stopped in amazement, looking
from the men to Anne, and then from
Anne back to the men. The nameless
one did not relax his vigil. He was
rather pale, but perfectly self-possessed,
and kept his eyes on the man before
him, but at Anne's glad cry of "Dad
dy!" a slight smile crossed his face.
Then suddenly, unexpectedly, across
the grim quiet of that awful silence
came an unmistakable Chuckle, and the
doctor's voice:
"Nothing surprising, Rexall, I warned
you things were pretty lively here— ln
March."
The day, begun so strenuously, was
fast drawing to an end. The shadows
closed softly In on the white world out
side; Inside the bright light of the
great pine fire streamed cheerily over
the room.
Anne tucked herself comfortably in
one corner of the huge Davenport. "If
this thing keeps up much longer," she
announced, dramatically, "I shall lose
my voice."
"As bad as that?" laughed John Rex
all.
"Every bit. This last harrowing re
cital to Tom makes the third since
luncheon.
"I can understand," she went on, re
flectively, "that that man might have
gotten hold of your telegram in some
way, either at the station or on the
road, and so discovered that you were
expected and delayed, and in that way
conceived the idea of impersonating
you. That part is clear enough. But
what I cannot understand is how he
knew we did not know you by sight."
"His face was familiar. I have seen
him sdmewhere before. Probably he
was hanging around the camp last fall,
and judged I would know only the doc
tor. He had to take some risks — prob
ably conceived the whole idea at once
when he saw the doctor leave. Sort of
'spontaneous inspiration," as it were."
"His weak point was in not knowing
you had come."
"He did not know It at first. I fancy
he had a fairly clear idea of my pres
ense later in the game."
"But is he "
"Never mind him now," he pleaded.
"By your own statement you are in
danger of losing your voice over him;
and I want you to save your voice,"
he continued, softly, "for better pur
poses."
Anne looked up at him. "Yes?" she
queried.
"I want you to save It to talk to me —
to promise me something," he went on,
earnestly.
A wave of delicate color dyed Anne's
face from brow to chin. Her eyes fell
before his.
"To let me know you better — to write
to me. Then, perhaps, next year, when
the crocuses come again, you'll promise
me more — when you know me."
His face was very grave.
"Well, perhaps," — Anne's dimples
showed in sudden mischief — "In March,"
she added, "when the crocuses come In
March — again." — The Star.

are greater than the combined sales of
all other packaged coffee in the United
States. Wherever you may be you get
the full advantage of our enormous
facilities. By the original "mother's"
process patented by this firm the pores
of the coffee bean are hermetically sealed ,
after roasting, with a coating of fresh
eggs and sugar, which preserves intact
the delicious flavor and aroma due to our
skilled blending and roasting — not to be
compared with crude, primitive methods
on a smaller scale. We drink Arbuckles'
Ariosa ourselves every day with the best
coffee in the world to choose from.
If your grocer refuses to sell you
Arbuckles' Ariosa Coffee, send us express
or postal money-order for $1.80, and we
will send 10 lbs. of Ariosa in a wood
box, transportation paid to your freight
station. The price of coffee fluctuates—
we cannot guarantee the price for any
period. We will ship in the original
packages with signature of Arbuckle
Bros. 10 lbs — 10 signatures — which en-
