The scene In the ol
ant James Hartley, night ?hi

ma tic and a vein of humor, and In
the -serious busln? bins the
prisoner wer- a n?m>ber of incidents,
which not only caused det<et Uves to
smile, but f?*H*oed the sccused t<> laugh
heartily. Me was th?* coolest person
in the room, anil ?hatted as though
he was enjoying the scene.
Flanked by Detectives springman
and u'Crien, the boy walked confl?
dently into the private office with a
youthful swaKSer, and without being
invited took a chair by the desk of
Lieutenant Hartley. Although th?* d?
t?ectlves had taken the revolver from
the hoy. they had not searched him.
and were Dot certain that he was the
real "Jimmy Valentine."' The denoue?

Springman. s?-arching the boy's
pockets with the deft lingers of a
man accustomed to 'going through '
a prisoner, quickly revealsd e collec?
tion of btlrglary tools as complete as
the imagination outfits in fictional de

article ?aras a new. nickel-plated Har?
rington .*? ilk hards.?n revolver, num
bered tiS.SSe, with a .32-callber
cartrldge in each of its six cylinder
chambers. The inside <?f the barrel
was <?<>>.. r. .1 with a thin layer of
-r**ease, showing that the weapon had
D>8Ver been Ared and probably was
purcha-sed but recently.
The lad uariled the revolver in a
tan leather holster attached to hi?
belt just under his left arm, so he
could draw the weapon quickly with
his right hand. Th.? leather holster|
is new, and apparently was bought
recently. ? >ne ???!?-?- was worn enough
to show that th?* holster had been in

on the holster, written in ink, showed
that the retail cost was Id ??? ??
From an inside coat pocket ?Spring
man extracted two black masks of
?heap material and of the style fre?
quently worn at mask balls. Two
holes ?.?.ere nit in the black cloth so
that the wearer could see without dif?

to ?-ntirely conceal the face. With the
exception of the eyes. In addition to
the masks. Springman brought to light

The Lynchburg Advance perpetrates
this one, not explaining, however, that
the cigar Orth supplied the stranger
may have caused the delusion:
Al Orth is ripe and ready for a vau?
deville stunt when some playwright
will shape it up for him, say, under
the title of "When I didn't play hall
ten years before I was horn in Illi?
nois."
The first rehearsal of the playette
took place Monday in Orth's smoke
shop with u soda fountain and a mon- I
ster photograph for stage settings and I
a good-sized attendance of veterans '
O? the Winter League on hand as Ihe
box occupants.
In sauntered a ??ommereial man who
is past the nine innings of life.
He wanted a smoke and Orth was
there to supply his need.
The cust?>mer Sti'ted for a- smoke
which bears the ni; ne of the veteran
toooer.
Then the str?ng? ? wanted to knpw
If the salesman pti onally knew Orth.
?irth. with that : -Hity to look wise
and say nothing. J plied that he did
hive a passing a?-**j lalirtsnce with the
"Smiling One." '
"1 knew him way back in th?
days." remarked the man ?is. he bit off
th?? end of an Orthrlco. "It was

"Too mean in 'S?, do you nQt?"
asked <>rth.
"That'a right." came back the in

By tliis time the Stove League was

Th.- stranger was quite certain that
