The two of us were en joying a quiet tmoke and chat in his cozy little orSce one day, when the door opened and his boy ushered in a lady client. She was apparently under 20 and was quite fashionably attired. Her form was tall ani slender and her face ex ceedingly attractive, but it bore traces of some sudden and overwhelming- af fliction, for her eyes were red with weeping-. "Mr. Banks, the detective, I pre sume?" she queried, turning-, after a quick g-lance at me, to my more ma ture companion. "At your service, madam. Pray be eeated." "Iam in sore trouble, sir," she said, in tremulous tones, applying her handkerchief to her eyes. "Death has suddenly robbed me of a father, and the prison if nothing- worse threatens to take a dear cousin from me." "That is very sad," my friend said, sympathetically. "But compose your self, my dear lady; we may yet avert the latter half of your trouble." "Oh, sir! God grant that you may, for my cousin, whom tiey suspect of the murder of ray poor ther, was to be my husband," she s the seriotts j ness of the case quite overcoming her j natural modesty. "Bat he is inno i cent; I know it, I feel it. in spite of ! the evidence against him. Oh, be ', lieve me. sir, Harry is as innocent of j this dreadful deed as I am!" I "My dear young- la ly," said Banks, ! encourasring-ly, "before hearing- the first detail of your case I am con- vinced that he is. My belief in fem- imn intuition is based upon the I solid foundation of experience. Be calm, therefore, and let me have the Btory from the beg-inning-: The circumstances she related were as follows: Her father, Thomas Kempton, was the proprietor of a larg-e furniture factory. He was a man who paid strict attention to bus iness, and was in the habit of remain ing in his office after the factory had closed for tha night and the men had departed, in order to finish up his large correspondence. One of the clerks in his employ was a nephew, a fine young-fellow, strong of body and g-enerous of heart, but not free from the follies of youth. Harry Stanton was a graduate of col lege and a thorough athlete, and be ing yet scarce twenty, ha had not outgrown his youthful enthusiasm for sports, clubs, aud semi-ineidentally late suppers with the boys. Now, the old are not always so tol erant of the ways of the young as recollection should make them, and ao it happened that the frequent transgressions of the uncle's office rules by the nephew caused between the two consid erable friction. On the evening of the tragedy, there had been quite a seri ous quarrel, and the young fellow had left the presence of his employer in hotheaded haste and with angry words. One hour later, and half an hour after the factory was closed, Mr. Kempton was found murdered in his private office. He was seated in his chair, his head falling forward on the desk before him. A pocket knife had been used to accomplish the deed, and this lay on the floor in a pool of blood at the murdered man's feet. On be ing cleansed and examined the fatal weapon was instantly recognized by the clerks as young Stanton's. There was no indication of a strug gle; the blow had evidently been struck from behind, and with unerr ing aim had pierced the heart. The safe had been rifled of its valuable contents, and there was evidence that the assassin, in making his exit through the general office had stopped to open Stanton's desk an 1 remove such things as the young fellow, in making a permanent departure, J would be likely to take. So much in substance had by inter rogatory promptings been drawn from the girl, when Banks said: "And now tell me what step3 have been taken." "Poor papa's head clerk has em ployed a detective a Mr. Gregg, who, after looking into the case, started off in hot pursuit of my cousin, whom he firmly believes to be the assassin." "Um!" came from Banks, as he gazed musingly into the fire. "Then young Stanton has disappeared?" "Yes; 'tis all a strange combination of circumstances, but I trust, sir, you still believe him innocent." "My dear youn? lady, a profes sional opinion based on the merits of the case would be rather premature. For the present, you must draw what comfort you may from my faith in your intuitions. If you desire it, I shall proceed at ones to the factory in order to secure some further data." "Kindly do so in my behalf, Mr. Banks," responded the girl, and then exhibiting- to the full her perfect con fidence ia her hunted lover, she said, "I wish you. to spare no expensa in L bringing the criminal to justice." Keceivmg my friend a promise to call at her home and report if any important clew was discovered, she Btepped into her carriage and was driven away. At hia request I accompanied him to the scene of the tragedy. An ZWY ua" hour's investigation bora rather bar ren results. The only important fact brought out beyond what we already knew was that the suspected young man had been seen near the factory shortly before the discovery of the murder. Banks, I thought, began to look a little bit blue. "Has this desk of Stanton's been touched?" he inquired presently, pull ing out the upper drawer. "The contents have not been ma terially disturbed," , responded the head clerk. Detective Gregg simply noted the missing articles and the bloody finger marks on the paper where it had been lifted to get at some old letters Stanton used to leave lying around the bottom. The whole matter seemed so clear to him that he was here scarcely ten minutes before he started off in hot pursuit." "Um!" said Banks, in his- peculiar way, and then ha proceeded to go through the contents of the drawer. Being slightly acquainted with one of the clerks, I stepped up to him for a moment's conversa tion. When I returned to my friend's side he was pocketing a sheet of paper which he had been examining with his microscope. A quick glance at his face showed me that he had hit upon a promising clew. "I think we have seen sufficient," he said immediately, and in a few minutes we were on our way back to town. "Found something. Banks?" "A mere trifle," he responded; "but mum's the word, my boy, 'even for you. A little spice of mystery, you know, will sharpen your interest." "I was hoping it was of sufficient importance to load to an immediate and favorable report to our charming client," said I. "Comforting the dis tressed, when aforesaid distressed is feminine, young, pretty, and rich, is rig-ht in my line." Banks laughed good-naturedly, and then relapsed into ruminating silence. It was about 4 o'clock in the after noon when we again entered the factory office. Banks carrying it pack age about fifteen inches square. It was wrapped in plain brown paper bore no label, tag or address of any sort, and, as far as I knew, might be any one of the thousand things be tween a tin of biscuits and an infernal machine. Neither Gregg nor his quarry had yet been heard from. "You will oblige me by gathering all the employes of the factory to gether in this office, Mr. Williams," said Banks addressing the head clerk. "Let the outer doors be locked, and when the men are all in here see that the office door is securely fastened also. I wish to try an interesting lit tle experiment." "I observe that you use a type writer," he went on, after Williams had given instructions to have the men called. "Will you kindly remove the ribbon, or, if yon have an unused one,better still." This being brought, Banks proceed ed to untie his package. Removing the outer wrapper, he laid bare a plain cardboard box, the cover of which he was on the point of lifting, when' he looked up to tee the eyes of all present gazing upon it with eager curiosity. Mine, he afterwards told me were fairly popping out of my head. As there was no particular hur ry, the little devil which tempts us to tantalize entered into him; be stayed his hand, and with a most quizzical expression of countenance, he lounged back in his chair and coolly puffed at his-cigarette. In five minutes the men, looking somewhat mystified, were all as sembled, and everything was ready for the next step. With a quick fiance Banks ran his eye over the 1 tdjEzJ?T Mf Wit FOUND MUHDEKEO IN A PRIVATS OFFICK. forty faces before him. Then, turn ing to me, he whispered mysteriously: "Stand close beside me, and when it comes to names jot down those I give you the signal to. It will save time. "Now, men," he said, addressing the gathering, "aa little more can be done in the matter of the murder un til we hear from Detective Gregg, Mr. Williams here has kindly con sented to allow me this favorable op portunity to put to test a little theory which has recently been brought to my notiee. It is said that in China all holders of public offices, and especially soldiers, are known by their thumb marks. The arrange ment of the grooves and furrows on the skin, it is claimed, is alike in no two individuals. That I wish to prove or disprove conclusively. Aa each man's name is called he will please step forward, press his left thumb on the typewriter ribbon, and then make an impression on this atrip of papered glass. To distinguish one from another, I desire - each man to record his name on the label I have affixed under the space for each im pression." Banks eyed each man keenly as he came np in answer to his nama and did as requested. One, two, three- lit til Innooent-lookia fellows enough -rvexit by, but the fourth individual had a sullen sort of look, and receiv ing the nudge of which I had been forewarned, I Jotted down His name. So the registering procession moved tlong until at last all had left their thumb marks and I had lissti just tbout a dozen names. "Now," said Banks, lifting the mys terious package, "I have here a small magic lantern through which I pro pose to put the alide bearing the im pressions. It ia now dark enough I fancy, and yes the back of that large calendar yonder will serve ex cellently as a white surface. Oblige me, Mr. Williams, by turning its faca to the wait. Thank you." While speaking my friend had bus ied himself in preparing tiie lantern, so that matters moved absorbingly and without delay. "To make the test a little more in teresting," he continued, "I will first show you the thumb mark of a gen tleman whom I have a great desire to meet. We will compare the otiiers with this one.' On the dlso of light thrown upon tho wall appeared a peculiar arrange ment of lines, ( jagged, running into each other, beginning nowhoro and ending at the same place. Presently, with my list before him. Banks pushed the long slide in and stopped at No. 4. For a few seconds he allowed it to show out beside the first. It exhibited a conformation entirely different. He then subreiin posed them, and placed the figure on the moving slide directly over that on the stationary one. The result was a confused network of interwoven lines. Quickly he hurriid through my list, treating each in the same manner and allowing the dissimilarities to speak for themselves. Presently one of the thumb marks fitted so nicely over the stationary one that not a single vari ation could be observed; there was no crossing of the lines and no blur. So perfect was tha matching of the im pression that I turned my eyes toward the lantern to be sure that' the two slides were really there. As I did ao I noticed a commotion in the back part of the room. Then uame a yell from Banks. "Seize him John Trasker the murderer! Don't let him escape, men!" Before a hand could be raised to stay him John Trasker had plung.?d headforemost through the window and was flying, with terror in his heels, down the street. Ere the doors could be opeuod and a hue and cry raised he had secured a long start. As it was only dusk out side, and there were few houses n ar the factory, he was still in view, how ever, and the men tore after him with cries of "Stop tha murdererl Stop him!" Presently a clatter of hoofs was heard, and a horse and rider dashed past them and gained rapidly upon the fugitive. Seeing he would m shortly overtaken if he kept the road, Trasker climbed a stone wall aud dashed across a meadow With a leap the rider cleared tho saddle; with a single bound he weut over the wall, and almost before tho other pursuers realized what was hap pening, John Trasker was struggling to free his pinioned arras from the iron grasp of his muscular captor. "Why, if it isn't Stanton!" cried Mr. Williams in surprise as he and the others came up. Arriving at the factory Trasker broke down and made a most abject confession. He had planned to re main behind that evening to riflj the open safe. Overhearing the quarrel between uncle and nephew, he saw how it might be used to his advan tage. On his way through the geu eral office he looked through Stan ton's desk and secured his knife. Re turning after the deed to complete the evidence against the young fel low, he had left the incriminating thumb mark. As for Stanton, his story was very sirupla. Ho had re turned to the premises last evening with a view of apologizing- to his. uncle, but pride overcoming his good intention he had gone away aga;n withoutentering. Shortly afterward, meeting a friend who lived some twenty miles from town, he had been tempted with the prospect of a day's shooting to accompany him home. Three o'clock that afternoon, ani just after they had got back from the woods, the first information of what had occurred reached him, and, bor rowing his friend's mare, he started for the factory, with what result has alr.-ady been made known. Banks received a check and abund ant thanks from his charming young client, and some flftean months later an invitation to the wedding. A Italy of the Dos; A story interesting to collectors of folk-lore is told of a Matabele bitten by a white man's watch-dog. The native claimed compensation for the injury. It was refused on tho ground that the man was trespassing, and the dog had a right to attack him. The justice of the ground of refusal was admitted. "But at least," naid the would-be thitrf, "give me a hair of the dog that bit me to put on the wound, and all will be well." It is curious to find the English supersti tion with regard to the hair of a dv that bites us paralleled in the belief of the Matabele people.
