Continued from Yesterday
Neither man spoke at first. Philip
Was always unconscious of the quaint
discrepancy between his style of
speech and his attire. He used to
resent bitterly the astonishment ex
hibited by strangers, but today lie
was far removed above con
siderations, and he backed up his re
quest by a pleasant smile.
The fat man grew apoplectic and
turned his eyes to the sky.
"Well. I'm ," he spluttered.
The green grocer laughed and
Philip blushed.
"Do you refuse?" he said, with his
downright manner and direct stare.
"Well, of all the cool cheek"— The
stout person's feelings were too much
for him. He could find no other
"It is a fair offer," persisted the
boy. "You think I mean to
swindle you. surely?"
"Well, there! I never did!"
But the green grocer intervened.
"You're a sharp lad," he guffawed.
"D'ye want a job?"
"Xo," was the short reply. "I want
something to eat."
"Dash my buttons, an' you're a
likely sort of kid to get it, too. In
you go. I'll pay the bill. Lord
lumme. it'll do me good to see you."
"Mr. Judd. are you mad?" demanded
his neighbor, whose breath had re
turned to him.
"Xot a bit of it- The bloomin' kid
can't get through a bob's worth if he
bursts himself. 'Ere, I'll bet you two
bob 'c pays up."
"Done! Walk in. sir. Wot'll you
be pleased to 'aye, sir?"
Philip's indignation at the restau
rant keeper's sarcasm yielded to his
wish to see him annihilated later in
the day. Moreover, the sausages
really smelt excellently, and he was
row ravenous. He entered the shop,
and gave his orders with a quiet dig
nity that astounded the proprietor
and hugely defeated the green grocer,
who, in the intervals of business, kept
peeping at him through the window.
Philip ate steadily, and the bill
amounted to r.inepence, which his ally
paid cheerfully.
The boy held out his hand. '
"Thank you, Mr. Judd," he said,
frankly. "1 will return without fail.
1 will not insult you by offering more i
than the amount you have advanced
for me. but some day I may be able
to render you good service in repay
Then he walked off toward the via
duct steps, and Mr. Judd looked after
"Talks like a little gentleman, 'c
does. If my little Jimmie 'ad lived 'c
would ha' bin just his age. Lord
lumme. I 'ope the lad turns up again,
an' not for the sake of the bloomln'
Binepenoe, neither. Tomatoes, mum?
Yes'm. Fresh in this mornln'."
After crossing Holborn viaduct.
Philip stood for a little while gazing
into the showrom of a motor agency.
ft was not that he was interested in
Panhard or De Dion cars—then but
little known to the general public in
England—but rather that he wished
to rehearse carefully the program to
be followed with Mr. Isaacstein. With
a sagacity unlooked for in one of his
years, he decided that the meteor
should not be mentioned at all. Of
course, the diamond merchant would
instantly recognize the stone as a
meteoric diamond, and would demand
its earthly pedigree.
Philip resolved to adhere to the
Birnple statement that it was his own
property, and that any reasonable in
quiry might he made in all quarters
where meteoric diamonds were ob
tainable as to whether or not such a
stone was missing. Meanwhile, he
would obtain from Mr. Isaacst%ln a
receipt acknowledging its custody and
a small advance of money, far below
its real worth, leaving the completion
of the transaction until a later date.
The question of giving or withhold
ing his address if it were asked for
was a difficult one to settle offhand.
Perhaps the course of events would
permit him to keep Johnson's Mews
altogether out of the record, and a
more reputable habitation would be
provided once he had the requisite
Thinking he had sue eessfully
tackled all the problems that would
demand solution, Philip wasted no
more time. He entered Hatton Gar
den, and had not gone past many of
its dingy houses until he saw a large,
brass plate, bearing the legend:
"Isaacstein & Co., Diamond Mer
chants. Kimberley, Amsterdam and
He entered the office and was in
stantly confronted by a big nosed
youth, who surveyed him through a
grille with an arched opening in it
to admit letters and small parcels.
"Is Mr. Isaacstein in?" said Philip.
"Oab, yess," grinned the other.
"Will you kindly tell him I wish to
ccc him?"
"Oah, yess." There was a Joke
lurking somewhere in the atmos
phere, but the young Hebrew had not
caught its drift yet. The gaunt and
unkempt visitor was evidently bur
lesquing the accent of such gentle
people as came to the office on busi
Philip waited a few seconds. The
boy behind the grille filled in the in
terval by copying an address into the
stamp book.
"Why do you not tell Mr. Isaacstein
I am here?" he said at last.
"Oah, yess. You vill be funny, eh?"
The other smirked over the hidden
humor of the situation, and Philip
understood that if he would see the
great man of the firm he must adopt
a more emphatic tone.
"I had better warn you that Mr.
Wilson of Messrs. Grant & Sons, Lud
gate Hill, sent me here to see Mr.
Isaacstein. Am I to go back to Mr.
Wilson and say that the office boy
refuses to admit me?"
There was a sting in the descrip
tion, coming from such a speaker.
"Look 'ere," was the angry retort,
"go avay and play, vill you? I'm
Philip reached quickly through the
little arch, grabbed a handful of shirt,
tie and waistcoat, and dragged the
big nose and thick lips violently
against the wires of the grille.
"Will you do what I ask or shall I
try to pull you through?" he said,
But the boy's ready yell brought
two clerks running, and a door was
thrown open. Phil released his op
ponent and instantly explained his
action. On e of the clerks, an elderly
man. looked a little deeper than the
boy's ragged garments, and the men
tion of Mr. Wilson's name procured
him a hearing. Moreover, he had
previous experience of the youthful
Janitor's methods.
With a cuff on the ear, this injured
personage was bidden to go upstairs
and say that Mr. Wilson had sent a
boy to see Mr. Isaacstein. The added
insult came when he was compelled
to usher Philip to a waiting room.
Soon a clerk entered. He was vis
ibly astonished by the appearance of
Mr. Wilson's messenger, and so was
Mr. Isaacstein, when Philip was pa
raded before him in a spacious apart
ment, filled with glass cases and
tables, at which several assistants
were seated.
"What the deuce" he began,
but checked himself. "What does
Mr. Wilson want?" he went on. Evi
dently his Ludgate Hill acquaintance
was useful to Philip.
"He sent me to you on a matter of
business. It is a private nature. Can
you give me a few minutes alone?"
Isaacstein was a big headed, big
shouldered man, tapering to a small
point at his feet. He looked absurdly
like a top, and surprise or emotion of
any sort caused him to sway gently.
He swayed now, and every clerk
looked up, expecting him to fall bod
ily on the urchin with the refined ut
terance who had dared to penetrate
into the potentate's office with such
a request.
Klmberley, Amsterdam and London
combined to lend effect to Isaacstein's
wit when he said:
"Is this a joke?"
All the clerks guffawed in chorus.
Fortunately, Isaacstein was in a good
humor. He had just purchased a pearl
for £250 which he would sell to Lady
Somebody for £800 to match another
in an earring.
"It appears to be," said Philip,
when the merriment had subsided.
The Jew. seemingly at a loss for
words, bent again over the stone. He
was scrutinizing it closely when a
heavy tread crossed the outer show
room and the door was flung open.
A policeman entered, and Isaacstein
bounced out of his chair.
"I have sent for you. constable, to
take this boy into custody," he cried,
excitedly. "He came here 10 minutes
ago and offered for sale a very valu
able diamond, so rare and worth so
much that he must have stolen it."
Philip, too, sprang up.
"It is a lie!" he shouted. "How
dare you say such a thing when I
have told you that it is mine?"
The policeman collared him by the
"Steady, my young spark." he said.
I "Mr. Isaacstein knows what he is
i about, and I don't suppose he Is very
far from wrong this time. Do you
know th<- boy. sir?'' he went on.
J Isaacstein gave a voluble and accu
rate summary of Philip's statements.
Each moment the policeman's grip
became firmer. Evidently the boy
was the mere agent of a gang of
thieves, though it was beyond com
prehension that any one short of an
idiot should choose an emissary with
I broken shoes and ragged clothing in
order to effect a deal with the leading
house in Hatton garden.
Philip listened to the recital in
dumb agony. His face was deathly
pale and his eyes glowed with the
rage and shame that filled his soul.
jSo the Jew had been playing with him,
merely fooling him until some secret
signal by an electric bell had sent a
messenger flying for the police. His
dream of wealth would end in the
jail, his fairy oasis would be a felon's
cell. Very well, be it so. If he could
help it. not all the policemen in Lon
don should rend his secret from him.
With a sudden glow of fiery satis
faction he remembered that his cloth
ing contained no clew to his address,
and he had not given his name either
at Ludgate hill or Hatton garden.
How long could they keep him a pris
oner? Would others find his meteor
and rob him of his mother's gift? In
less than a fortnight men would come
to tear down the buildings in John
son's Mews.
Well, it mattered not. The cour
age of despair which nerved him the
previous night came to his aid again.
He would defy them all, careless of
The policeman was saying:
"It's a queer affair, sir. Did he
really say he had lots more of "em?"
"Yes, yes! Do you tJkjink I am ro-

mancing? Perhaps they are in his
possession now."
"Have you any more of these
stones, boy?"
Philip, with lips tensely set, was
desperately cool again. He moved
his arm, and the constable's grasp
"You are hurting me," said the boy.
I merely wish to put my hand in my j
pocket. Are you afraid of me, that
you told me so fast?"
The policeman, like the rest, did I
not fail to notice Philip's diction. The I
scornful superiority of his words, the
challenge of the final question, took
him aback. He relaxed his grip and
grinned confusedly.
Philip instantly produced his paper
of diamonds and opened it widely, so
that all the stones could be seen. He
handed the parcel to the policeman.
"Take good care of them, consta
ble," he said. "Judging from results,
they would not be safe in that man's
But Isaacstein did not hear the in
sult. When he saw the collection he
nearly lost his senses. What had he
done? Was he or the boy mad?
Veins stood out on his forehead, and
he wobbled so fearfully that he
clutched the desk for support. A
scarecrow of a boy wandering about
London with thousands of pounds'
worth of diamonds In his pocket,
wrapped up in a piece of newspaper
like so many sweets. There was not
any meteoric diamonds of such value
in all the museums and private collec- i
tions in the world. He began to per
spire. Even the policeman was as
founded, quite as much at being called I
"constable" by Philip as by the mean I
appearance of articles presumably of
great value.
"This is a rum go. What do you
make of it, Mr. Isaacstein?" he said.
The query restored the Jew's wits.
After all, here was the law speaklnsr.
It would have been the wildest folly
for a man of his position to dabble In
this mysterious transaction.
With a great effort he forced him
self to speak.
"Lock him up instantly. This
matter must be fully inquired into.
And do be careful of that parcel, con
stable. Where do you take him? To
the Bridewell station? I will follow
you in a cab in five minutes."
So Philip, handcuffed, was marched
down the stairs past the gratified
office boy and out into the street.
As for Isaacstein. he required
brandy, and not a little, before he
felt able to follow.
In after years Philip never forsot
the shame of that march through the
staring streets. The everlasting idlers
of London's busiest thoroughfares
gathered around the policeman arid
his prisoner with grinning callous
"Wot's > bin a-doin' of?"
"Nicked a lydy's purse, eh?"
"Naw! Been ticklin' the till, more
"Bli-me. don't 'c look sick."
They ran and buzzed around him
like wasps, stinging most bitterly
with coarse words and coarser laugh
ter. An omnibus slowed Its pace to
let them cross the road, and Philip
knew that the people on top craned
their necks to have a good look at
him. When nearlng the viaduct steps
the policeman growled something at
the pursuing crowd. Another con
stable strode rapidly to the entrance
and cut off the loafers, sternly ad
vising them to find some other des
tination. But the respite was a brief
one. The pair reached Farringdon
street and had barely attracted at
tention before they passed the res
taurant where Philip has lunched.
The hour was yet early for midday
customers, and the bald headed pro
prietor saw them coming. He rushed
out. The green grocer, too, turned
from his,wares and joined in the ex
clamations of his friend at this
speedy denouement of the trivial in
cident of 20 minutes earlier.
The restaurant keeper was made
jubilant by this dramatic vindication
of the accuracy of his judgment.
For some reason the boy's grave,
earnest eyes conquered the big little
man's amused scrutiny.
'.Vow, boy, be quick. What is it?"
he said, testily, and every clerk bent
to his task.
"I have told you, sir. I wish to
have a few minutes' conversation
with you with regard to business of
an important nature."
"You say Mr. Wilson sent you—Mr.
Wilson of Grant & Sons?"
"Yes. sir."
Isaacstein yielded to amazed curi
"Step in here," he said, and led the
way to his private office, surprising
himself as well as his assistants by
this concession.
Philip closed the door and Isaac
stein turned sharply at the sound, but
the boy gave him no time to frame
a question.
"I want you to buy this," he said,
handing over the diamond.
Isaacstein took it, and gave it one
critical glance. He began to wabble
"Do you mean to say Mr. Wilson
sent you to dispose of this stone to
me?" he demanded.
"Not exactly, sir. I showed it to
him and he recommended me to
<-on-,e to you."
"Ah, I see. Sit down, there," in
dicating a chair near the door. The
diamond merchant himself sat at his
desk, but they were both in full view
of each other.
"Where did you get it?" he asked.
"I found it."
"Quite so. But where?"
"At this moment I do not wish to
gn into details, but it is mine, mine
only, and I am quite willing that you
should make every inquiry to satisfy
yourself that it was not stolen. I
suppose that is what you fear?"
Sheer wonder kept the Jew silent
for a space.
"Do you know its value?" he said,
with a sudden snap.
"Mr. Wilson told me it was worth
several hundreds of pounds."
"Did he. really?"
"Yes. He said you would treat me
quite fairly, so I wish you to advance
me a few pounds until you have de
cided upon its real price. You see,
I am very poor, and my present ap
pearance creates an unfavorable Im
pression. Still, I am telling you the
absolute truth, and I show my confi
dence in you and in my own case
by offering to leave the diamond
with you on your receipt, together
with a small sum of money."
Philip thought he was getting on
very well. Isaacstein's large eyes
bulged at him, and speech came but
slowly. He leaned forward and rum
maged among some papers. Then he
opened a drawer and produced a mag
nifying glass, with which he focused
the diamond.
"Yes, it's worth 600 or 700 pounds,"
he announced, "but it. will be some
time before I can speak accurately
as to its value. I think it may be
flawless, but that can only be de
termined when it is cut."

Cigar Stump Exchange
Without a doubt the most novel mart
In the world is the cigar stump ex
change which is held in the east end of
London every Sunday morning. Here
the dwellers in the commoa lodging
houses that abound In the locality
bring the cigar ends —"snipes" they
call them—they have collected during
the week and sell them to swarthy,
alien looking men for good, current
coin of the realm.
What becomes of them afterward
nobody seems to know, but it Is gen
erally surmised that they are made up
into cheap cigarettes after being
shredded, and probably mixed with
other tobacco or tobaccp dust.
The sellers bring their wares in paper
bags, in cardboard boxes or tied up in
grimy handkerchiefs or old rags.
There is no dealing in futures. Each
broker sells only the cigar ends actu
ally In his possession, getting the
most money he can for them.
The prices on the cigar stump ex
change vary from time to time, just as
they do on other exchanges. In sum
mer, during the height of the London
season, they rule low. Cn winter, when
fewer persons smoke cigars In the
streets, the sellers get 10 or 15 per
cent more for their stumps.
