to his studio to find his new portrait ot
Vise Meredith has been stolen. He calls
in the police, notably Lieutenant RKh
ards. The lieutenant finally rescues the
portrait, somewhat disfigured, from the
hands of some notorious spiritualists. H
watches the artist restore the work to Its
former state, and then exclaims: "Why,
.that's the picture of the girl they found
In the Ice!"
CHAPTER XIV. (Continued.)
,r-lHE COURSE I decided upon
m I was, I frankly admit, in ae
cordance with my own selfish
interests. But I believed,
honestly and sincerely, that it ac
corded with her best Interests, too."
"I have no difficulty In believing
that," said I. "and I do really' appreci
ate the difficulties of your situation."
He laughed grimly. "Not jet you
don't." he said. "I thought they were
difficult enough at the beginning, but
that was nothing to what happened
within the Xlret week of my attendance
upon her." -
He paused there and drew a long.
rather unsteady, breath. "111 to not
to harrow you with details," he said.
"But what happened was that Miss
Meredith had a violent maniacal out
break, during which she said positively
that she had killed her niece."
I didn't dare look at effrey. I felt,
rather than saw, the sudden relaxa
tion of his body in the chair that told
Sis, who knew him so well, the in
tensity with which his mind had been
waiting for Crow's next words.
"I tried aj best I could to get de
tails. But all I could get, beyond the
bare assertion 'I killed her! I know
she is dead! I killed her mvselfl' was
the apparently senseless statement. I
killed her with a pin
"I confess I didn't know wnat to do.
I had never gone back on her own
unsupported statement that Clair? haa
died of smallpox, and I was btlli in
clined to think it likely that that waa
trut. But. of course, I couldn't let It
go at that. I communicated with
friends ir Paris, and asked them to
get the official version of Claire Mere
dith's death.
"When Miss Meredith herjelf had
it-. ovored fr.Tn the attack and was
superficially sane again, I made an
effort to bring up the subject and get
fcome details from her. But it was
evident that that wouldn't do. For
some reason or other. Claire's death
was bo intimately associated with the
source of .her delusions that any ap
ln ouch to the subject seemed to bring
tlnuu back.
"But. after what seemed an inter
minable while. I got word from Paris.
Tue girl had died during a serious
epidemic bf the disease, having been
taken, as soon as it was diagnosed In
her case, out of Miss Meredith's care
altogether and conveyed to the pest
liuuee. There wasn't the faintest Ir
regularity about it, nor, so far as I
could see. any opportunity for any
lrrepularlty. My friends had a copy
of the death certificate made and sent
to me,
"That was a great relief, of course;
but it left me still in the dark as to
whfit I was most anxious to get at
namely, the source of Miss Meredith's
delusion. She rarely mentioned Claire
Though, from occasional remarks she
dropped, I gathered that they had not
got on well together, and that the an
tipathy between them had grown with
the years.
"Miss Meredith's attitude toward her
lose has always struck me as being
one of remorse rather than of regret
as if. in her sanest moments, she
still felt herself responsible for
Claire's death. For some reason or
other, that was the thing that was
ireying on her mind, and 1 felt that
must discover the source of the de
lusion In order to remove it.
"It was by the merest chance in the
tvorla that I did discover It I was
turning over the contents of her
B;r.-r.K-box one day, in a search for
some papers she had- directed me to
flmL when I came upon a photograph
of Claire a print from the same
plate, evidently" he turned to Jef
fre "as the one you used for the
portrait. That picture gave me the
ciue. It was marked, spotted all over,
with pin-pricks."
I heard a little catch In Jeffrey's slow,
even breathing, and he sat up with a
sudden look of Illumination.
"That's very Interesting," he salJ.
It was his first remark since Crow had
begun his story. "It must have seemed
strange to come upan an evidence of
Salem witchcraft here in the beginning
of the twentieth century."
"You're rather wonderful," said
Crow, "to get it all In a minute like
that. It took me three solid days to
figure it out, and I have heard of one
or two other Tnodern cases that might
have.Elven me a -precedent."
"You will have to explain it to me,"
said I. , .,
"Why, she must have gone on hating
her niece for years in her cold, re
pressed Meredith way. I know that
during the time they lived In Paris she
was amusing herself with new relig
ions some of the pseudo mysticism
that is cropping up everywhere in Eu
rope and America, and is making life
such a cinch for a lot or these fake
East Indian Brahmins. The eccentric
streak that is so characteristic in her
family happened to take that form.
"She had a photograph taken of her
niece, and began making pin-pricks In
It. with the idea of exercising a ma
lign influence on the girl possibly even
with the Idea that the effect of It
would be fatal. The idea was horrify
ing to me, until I came to the conclu
sion that the act itself had been a part
of her delusion Or pernaps sne otu it
fi! a wholly experimental and incredu
lous way, without any serious Delict
that K could do her niece any harm.
But you will understand in a moment
how the coincidence of the malady
that did overtake Claire must have
affected her. The marks of smallpox
must have seemed perrectly definite
correspondents to the pin-pricks in the
photograph. The fact that the doctors
called it smallpox even the fact that
there was an epidemic of it in the
city at the time didn't at all relieve
her own Interior conviction that she
and no one else was responsible for
Claire's death.
"The moment I discovered where the
seat of the delusion was. 1 set to work
to rtmovinE it. I brought Miss Mere
dith Into town, took her about with me
wherever I thought it was safe, in a
word, did everything I could to divert
her mind.
"Meanwhile I had sent to the pho
tographer In Paris who had made the
photograph and asked him for another
print. When it came back I took it to
Beech Hill and substituted It for the
pin-pricked one In Miss Meredith's box.
I began talking about Claire, natf.
finally succeeded in getting Miss Mere
dith to talk about her in a more or
less normal wa.
"Finally. I said I thought it would be
an excellent plan to have Claire's por
trait painted. I remarked that I had
come upon an excellent photograph of
her In Miss Meredith's box, and that I
thought a skillful partralt painter like
yourself" he nodded toward Jeffrey
"would be able to produce a satisfac
tory as well as a beautiful portrait
from it.
"Of course, the idea that I had found,
out what she regarded as her fatal
secret excited my patient exceedinglj.
I had taken her to Beech Hill for the
purpose of making the sugKCstion, and
against her vigorous protest, I went to
the box got out the photograph and
showed it to her. Of course, she was
greatly excited to find It was not de
lacea. "But the result of the experiment was
as I had anticipated. She knew she had
been ill. had been suffering from delu
sions, ard she simply ulaced this among
them and dismissed it as nothing worse
than a long nightmare. She seemed to
me to be on the road to a complete re
cover j.
"And then something happened I
coulun't possibly have foreseen some
thing that has gone far to undo all that
I trird tp accomplish in the way of ef
fecting a curt.
"By some mns or other which I
never have fathomed, a pair of Spir
itualists learned or guessed th:it Miss
Meredith might be made their prej.
They get into communication with
her a thing that Miss Meredith's
greatlj improved health made It much
easier for them to do than It would

persuaded her to come to a stance.

a hint that would lead toward her
identification, if the circumstances
had sol made it impassible. Hut I
think you will see that my hands
were tied in that matter pretty com
pletely." "Yes." said Jeffrey. "I can see that."
Crow rose from his chair. "I hope
you can see, too," he said, "the reason
why my dealings with you have not
been as frank and direct as I could wish
them to be. 1 honestly meant, when I
made that appointment with you for
this afternoon, to tell you something
of these circumstances, though not so
much as I have told you this evening.
On the whole. I am not sorry that you
forced my hand.

difficult decisions within the last three
years without consulting anybody, and
I have had to carry around more se

could find pleasant. It has been a great

Jeffrey rose. too. "Well," he said, "If
anything more turns up come to us
again. If there is anything we can do
do, call us. My friend Drew here has

know. And I myself come across with

both greatly indebted to you for telling
It to us. We have a problem of our

Crow nodded and said good night to
Jeffrey. I was already In the doorway,
in the act of showing him out.
"By the way," said Jeffrey, and Crow
stopped short. Perhaps he had said it a
littld too casually, fo,- I myself had the
feeling something was coming. "There's
that photograph you gave me to paint
from. I must return that. I'd forgotten
I It. Shall I send it to Beech Hill or to
Miss Meredith 8 town address?
"Why, you may as well send It direct
to Beech Hill," said Crow.
"I'll attend to it at once," said Jeffrey,
"and then I shan't have anything more
on mv mind. There's nothing else, is
"I think not," said Crow, "and you
can congratulate yourself on a very
successful outcome. The portrait was
really wonderful. Good night again."
He looked, as he stood there facing
Jeffrey, holding out his hand to him.
like a man who had just got rid of
some lone, crushing oppression, who
had Just dropped a load off his shoul
ders and was standing up straight
and drawing deep, comfortable breaths
for the first time in a long while.
I didn't wonder at that. I could see
that his secret knowledge of Miss
Meredith's condition, his uncertainty,
the puzzling coincidence of his own
selfish Interests with those of his
patient, must have driven him nearly
So it was with real cordiality, when
he had followed me to the outer door,
which I held open for him, that I ex

Then, with what seemed a supreme

swiftly away down the corridor to

"Are ou game. Drew?" Will you see

"See what through?" said I "It's

"We've got to outguess him." said
Jfffiey. thoughtfully. "Will he bring

Persons Close to Pennsylvania
Officials Foresee Improve
ments at Quarantine.
That the work of probing the bottom
of the Patapsco river' in the vicinity of
Quarantine Station foreshadows ex
tensive developments by the Pennsyl
vania railroad, is the statement of an
Interest close to the company.
The opinion seems to prevail In cir
cles where the actions of the Pennsyl
vania are watched closely, that con
crete tubes will be laid under both the
Patapsco and Potomac rivers. The work
of probing the Patapsco will doubtless
be followed by probing the Potomar
with a view to putting tubes under
one or both of the rivers.
"I am convinced." said a man who
evidently has considerable knowledge of
the company's expansion policies, "that
the Pennsjlvanla contemplates a new
line which will leave the present Fred
ericksburg, Richmond and Potomac
road at Aqua Creek. Va. This road is
the connecting line between North and
South, and is used jointly by the Penn
sylvania and other roads.
"From Aqua Creek I believe they In
tend crossing the Potomac through a
tube In Charles County, lower Mary
land. They will then probably tunnel
under the Patapsco near Baltimore.
"The advantages of such a line are
easy to see." continued the railroad
man, "for it would greatly relieve the
crowded facilities at the terminals here
In Washington. With the new cut
off constructed, traffic from the South,
bound for New York or Philadelphia,
would not pass through Washington
at all.
"Yet the proposed new connection
will not. In any way. Interfere with
the existing relations between the
Pennsylvania and its Southern con
nections, it c.ill take all through
business from the Southern, Seaboard,
and Coast lines at its Aqula creek Junc
tion, avoiding hauling It through Wash
ington. The route north, through Bal
timore, will then he almost direct."
It hai been generally admitted by
railroad men that the loss sustained
bv the railroads by delays on perish
able freight from the South Is enor
mous. It is also known that the move
ment of Southern-grown fruit and other
produce is constantl. growing. Tho
further fact that the delays at the
local terminal are becoming more and
more frequent because of overcrowding,
would indicate that the Pennsylvania
has good reason for wanting a mote
direct route from Virginia Into New
York and Philadelphia.
