The Mystery
of the
Boule Cabinet
Copyright, 1913, by Burton E.
Wo Meet M. Pigot.
I HAD, of course, read In the pa
pers many times of the Gargan
tuan exploits of Crochard "The
Invincible," as ho loved to call
himself, and with good reason.
"Crochard is ono of the greatest
criminals who ever lived, full of Im
agination and resource and with a
sense of humor most acute." said God
frey. "I have followed his career for
years. It was this fact that gave me
my first clew. He killed a man onco
before. Just as he killed this last one.
Tho man had betrayed him to the po
lice. He was never betrayed again."
"What a flend he must bel" I said,
with a shudder.
But Godfrey shook his head quickly.
"Don't get that Idea of him," he
protested earnestly. "Up to the time
of his arrival in New York he had
never killed any man except that
traitor. Him he had a certain right
to kill according to thieves' ethics,
any way."
"But Drouet and Vantlne," 1 ob
jected. "An accident for which he was in
no way responsible." said Godfrey
"You mean ho didn't kll! them?"
"Most certainly not This last man,
he did kill was a traitor like the first.
Crochard, I think, reasons like this:
To kill an adversary is too easy; It Is
too brutal; it lacks finesse. Besides. It
removes the adversary. And without
adversaries Crochard's life would be
of no Interest to him."
"I can't understand a man like
that," I said.
"Well, look at this," said Godfrey
and tapped the letter again. "He
honors me by considering me an ad
versary. Does he seek to remove me?
On the contrary, he gives me a handi
cap." "
"But, surely, Godfrey." I protested,
"you don't take that letter seriously!
If he wrote It at all, he wrote it merely
to throw you off the track. If he says
Wednesday, he really Intends to try
for the cabinet tomorrow."
"I don't think so. I told you he
would think me only a tyro. He wrote
that letter right In the Record office.
That Is a sheet of our copy paper. He
sat down there, right under my noe,
wrote that letter, dropped It Into my
box and walked out. And all that
some time this evening, when the office
was crowded."
"But It's absurd for him to write a
letter like that, if he really means it.
You have only to warn the police."
"You'll notice he says it is In confl
"And you're going to keep it so?"
"Certainly 1 nm. I consider that he
has paid me a high compliment I
have shown It to no one but you also
in confidence."
"It Is not the sort of confidence the
law recognizes." I pointed out. "To
keep a confidence like that Is practical
ly to abet a felony."
"And yet you will keep It," said God
frey cheerfully. "You see. I am going
to do everything I can to prevent that
felony. And we will see if Crochard is
really invincible!"
"I'll keep it.'" I agreed, "because I
think the letter in Just a blind. And,
by the way." 1 added. "I have a letter
from Armand & Son confirming the
fact that their books show that the
Boule cabinet was bought by Philip
Vantlne. Under the circumstances. I
shall have to claim it and hand It over
to the Metropolitan."
"I hope you won't disturb It until
after Wednesday." said Godfrey quick
ly. "1 won't have any Interest In it
after that" I agreed to do so.
I was Just getting ready to leave the
office the next afternoon when Godfrey
called me up.
"How are you feeling today. Lester?'
ho asked.
"Not as fit as I might." 1 said.
"How would you like a whiff of salt
nir this evening?"
"First rate. How will I get it?"
"Tho Savole will get to quarantine
about 0 o'clock I'm going down on
our boat to meet her. 1 want to have
a talk with Inspector Pigot. the Krench
detective. Will you come -along?"
"Will I!" I said. "Where shall" I
meet you?"
"At tho foot of Liberty street at 5
"I'll be there," I promised. And I
The boat was cast loose as soon as
we got aboard, backed out Into the
busy river, her whistle shrieking shril
ly, then swung about and headed
down stream. There were two other
men on board the regular ship report
ers, I suppose.
- Godfrey and I stood for some time
looking at the harbor In silence.
"It's a great sight. Isn't It?' he said
at last, "nello! Look at that boat!"
ho added, as a yacht coming down the
bay drew abreast of us and then slow
" ly forged ahead. "She can go some,
can't she? This boat of ours Is no
slouch, you know, but Just look how
that one walks away from us. I wonder

be called to the uiau ou tho bridge.
-ion t Know, Bir, answered tiieeop-
tain, after n look through his glasses,
"Private yncht cnu't make out her
name there's a Dag or something
hanging over the stern. She's flying
tho Trench flag. There come the other
press boats behind us, sir." he added.
"And thero's tho Savolo Just slowing
down at quarantine."
Far nhead we could see the great
hull of the liner, dark agaUiBt the hori
zon and crowned with row upon row
of glowing lights.
Tho Savole had slowed down until
she was Just holding her own against
the tide, and ono of her lower ports
swung open. A moment later a boat
puffed up beside her, made fast and
three or Tour men clambered aboard
and disappeared through tho port.
"There go the doctors," said God
frey. "And thero Is that French bout
going alongside."
Tho tug from quarantine dropped
astern and the French yacht took her
place. After a short colloquy oiieinnn
from her .was helped aboard the Sn
vole. Then It was our turn, mid a
moment later Godfrey and I tind the
other two men were aboard the liner.
My companions exchanged greetings
with the officer In clnuge of the open
port, and then we bun led forward
along a narrow rorrldur, smelling of
rubber nnd heated inetiil. then up stair
after stair, until at last we came to
the mtiln companion wny. Here the two
men left us, to seek i-ertaln distinguish
ed passengers. Godfiey stopped In
front of the purser's office and passed
his card through the little window to
the man Inside the cage.
"I should like to re M. Pigot of the
Paris deteethe force." lie said "Per
haps you will lie -ii kind as to have a
steward take my card t him?"
"That is unnecessary, sir," replied
the purser courteously. "That Is M.
Pigot yonder the gentleman with the
white hair, with Ills back to us. You
will have to wait for a moment, how
ever. The gentleman speaking with
him Is from the French consulate and
has but this moment come aboard."

arriving, till there was quite a crowd
before the purser's office. And from
nearly every paper a special man , had
been detailed to interview .M. Pigot,
Evidently all the papers were alive lo
the importance of the subject. There
was some good uatured chaffing, and
then one, of the stewards was bribed
to carry the cauls of the assembled

lords of the press were not accustomed
to being kept waiting.
"I move we storm his castle." sug
gested one man.
And just then. .M. Pigot himself step
ped out Into (he conipaiilouway. In
an Instant he was surrounded.
"My good friends of the press." he
said, speaking slowly, but with only
the faintest accent, "you will pardon

tance to attend to. and also my bag to

find my bag outside of my stateroom

I may be ready to go ashore at ouce."
The steward hurried away, and M
Pigot turned back lo us.
It was to Godfiey that the position
of spokesman naturally fell.
"We wish t't-st lo welcome you to
America, M. ilgot." he said, "and to
hope that you will have a pleasant and
interesting stay In our country. We
hope that with your assistance our po
lice mny be able to solve the mystery
surrounding the death of the three men
recently killed here, and to arrest the
murderer. Of themselves they seem
to be able lo do nothing."
M. Pigot spread out bis hands wltb
a little deprecating gesture.
"I also hope wi. may be successful."

i lie spoke with un accent so sincere
that I was nlmoxt convinced he meant

, "It Ib a proverb," ho said, "that the
French police nre the best In the world.
You, no doubt, have n theory in regard
'to the dentb of these men?"

Pigot regretfully, "to answer that

happy to tell you nil that 1 cau. But
for tonight my lm are dosed, sad as
it niakea me to seem discourteous."
I I could hear behind me thu little lo-
drawn breath of disappointment nt the
failure of tho direct attack.
A volco was heard Inquiring loudly
for Moossccr Piggott. I recognized that
voice, and 'so did Godfrey, and I saw
tho cloud of disappointment which fell I
upon bis face. An Instant later Grady,
with SImmonds in his wake, elbowed

o'clock? 1 am truly sorry that I can
tell you nothing tonight"
Uo shook hands with the purser,
waved his hand to us nnd Joined Gra
dy, who was watching these amenities
with evident Impatience. Together
they disappeared down the stair.
"Come' on. Lester." Godfrey said,
"we might as well be getting back. I
can send the boat down again after
the other boys." and he turned down
the stair.
Godfrey bade me goodby at the dock
and hastened nway to the office to
write bis story. As for me. that whiff
of salt air had put nn unaccustomed
edge to my nppetlte. nnd I took n cab
to a good restaurant, deciding to spend
the remainder of the evening there,
over a good dinner.
I ambled through tho dinner in a
