Maubikeck, the Lion-Tamer.
By SEWARD W. HOPKINS, Author of "Jack Robbins of America." "In tIM China Sea," "Two Gentlemen ol Hawaii." "On a Paiaa Charge,” Etc. oap7rtgbt. IMS, by Robsbt Boaaaa'a Boaa> CHAPTER XlV.—(Continued.) We hurried on to Havre, Nita, Thor fane and I. and took passage on La Touraine for New York. At my suggestion, Nita had engaged a maid, and as she was an elderly, sour-visaged female, sho served every purpose of chaperon as well as of pre serving appearances. Once in New York I sought the major. I found him at the club and he nearly fell in a heap on the floor when he beheld mo. “By Gad!” he exclaimed, rushing to me, wringing by hands, tears stream ing down his face and his whole frame trembling. "Dick! Wilberton. old fel low. how did you do it? We heard you were dead, you know.” “Heard I was dead, eh? Well, I’m a lively dead man. major. I’ve got what I went after, and more, too. Had all sorts of adventures and nar row esca; as. Brought back Maubl keck, whose name is Henry Thorlane, and Nita Barlotti, whose name is Alice Craviscourt.” "No! Gad! Is it so? Have you got the proof?” "Proof enough. We must see Charles Kigmotta at once. I need another bit of testimony from him. and then we'll tackle Graviscourt and knock him out.” I showed the major the locket and pin and read to him the statements of Antonio Sigmotta and Dambo. "You returned just in time,” said the major, grimly. "The wedding is now surely on the way. 1 have learned since you left the true inwardness of Broughton's preference for Gravis court. It seems that Broughton's means are much more limited than we have supposed, and he has from time to time borrowed money from Gravis court, giving him a mortgage on his house as security. He has gone to the wall financially, and Graviscourt pushes his claim to Edith, promising Broughton to cancel all debts the day she becomes his bride. She held out firmly until the news came that you died in Sardinia of some fever, and then the poor girl gave up the fight and consented to be a sacrifice to save her father. But you are in time, boy —you are in time. Edith loves you. and you only. Do up Graviscourt and the field is yours." "What about Nita?" I asked. "She is now at tho same hotel as Thorlane and I. but it doesn’t look just—” "Not at all. boy; not at all. My sis ter. Mrs. Dabner, is just the one. She will be glad to receive her as a guest, and. of course, her wedding must be in my sister’s home. 1 will see Nellie at once.” True to Ills promise, the major saw his sister, and she readily assented to his plan. Tlint evening Nita was es corted to Mrs. Dabner's house, where she remained until she became Mrs. Henry Thorlane. Wnen I left the club, I was hurry ing through the street, when lo! I saw Edith Broughton coming toward me, with a couple of small packages in her arms. And she was alone. My death had freed her from all danger, in Broughton's eyes, and she was now allowed to go shopping alone. 1 looked about me hurriedly, and saw a door way that was somewhat dark and se cluded. I waited near it. ami when Edith came up I seized her, whisked ht / into that doorway, and proceeded to hug and kiss her in a fashion that partially recompensed me for the long period of waiting I had undergone. At first she was frightened nearly out of her wits, but when she realized who it was that had her fast, the darling put her arms around my neck ami met me fairly half way, dropping her bun dles in her excitement. "Dick! Darling Dick!” she cried. "They told mo you were dead.’ Kisses. “I don’t look very dead, do I. > darling?” More kisses. "I have come back lo take you away from that fel low, Graviscourt. and no nonsense about it now, either. I’ve learned courage since I left Now York, ami you will be my wife now if I have to kill Graviscourt and your respected parents to get you!” Oh, Dick, darling, what an escape I’ve had! If you’d been a little later I’d have married him to save papa. Oh! think of it, Dick." "Don’t do it. Think bf me. You are sure you love me?" "Oh, Dick!” reproachfullly. I kissed her again. Her face was suffused with blushes. Her hat was awry. She was half laughing and half crying in her happiness. "Some one will see us, Dick,” she said, finally. “Do call a carriage and take me home.” So I called a carriage, and. putting my future wife into it, I clambered in after her and set her down at her own door. Then I lighted a cigar and, or dering the driver to take me to the hotel. 1 lay back on the cushions, the most exquisitely happy, contented and egotisticallly satisfied individual Bn the universe. On the day following that upon which we arrived in New York, a party of three wended our way to number 300 Mulberry street, and upon presentation of our names were ush ered into the presence of Superintend ent Byrnes of the Metropolitan Po lice. His grim face softened with a w smile when he saw us, and he held out a brawny hand that nearly crushed mine as he greeted me. the dead has returned to life," ho said pleasantly. "You gave us quite a scare, young man.” "Not I superintendent, but my friends did it for me,” I replied. Then I launched into the object of our visit. Byrnes listened attentively while I told him the whole story, omitting nothing which in the smallest degree bore upon the mystery of Alice Gravis court and Nita Barlotti. He listened attentively, with his eyes fixed stead ily upon my face. Then I read the statements of Antonio Sigmotta and Dambo and exhibited the pin and locket with the miniature photograph. The major and T horlune were as keen in listening as if it was the first time they had heard these things. When I had finished, the superin tendent said: "I do not see that anything is lack ing except the confession of Charles Ligmotta. You have now enough to convict him, but it would be difficult to connect the man Graviscourt with tho crime. The identification of Nita Barlotti as Alice Graviscourt seems to be pretty well established, and if Charles Sigmotta was dead, you could give Graviscourt quite a fight. But with Sigmotta's own confession you will overwhelm him so utterly that be will have no loophole of escape.” "That is just the way we look at it,” I replied, “and we came to you to get your advice as to the best way to ob tain Sigmotta's confession.” The superintendent thought a mo ment. "There is no doubt, is there, major,” he said, "that the druggist Tortoni is Charles Sigmotta?” "Not the least,” replied the major. "I identified him before Wilberton and Thorlane went away, and Dambo's statement verifies mine.” “Tortoni the druggist went away on the same day that Maligni did," I said. "I do not know whether he has re turned or not.” "It will not take long to learn," said the superintendent. "But first let us get at what we want to do with him. Undoubtedly the man deserves the severest punishment • that can be meted out to him under the law. The fact that his murderous intention was trustrated by his brother does not make his act any the less heinous." "True,” 1 said. “But the punishment of Sigmotta is not the end sought. It is Graviscourt we want. I do not think we need to do much with Sigmotta. who probably did what he was em ployed to do. 1 would be willing to let up on him for the sake of getting at the absolute truth in regard to the whole matter.” "I see,” said the superintendent. “And armed thus, you will proceed against Graviscourt?” "With that I have nothing to do." I replied. "My duty is ended the mo ment the truth is established. The case then goes to Nita Barlotti and her affianced husband, Henry Thor lane. I trust them to regain her rights.” Thorlane smiled grimly. "Would it not be a good plan to go to Tortoni's drug store and confront him with the facts we have already learned and squeeze him until be squeals?" Byrnes laughed. "I see you have tho vernacular,” he said, “but I think I can show you a better squeezing trick than that. Let me have the papers.” He rang a bell and an officer entered. "What is the address of the drug store?” asked tho superintendent. I told him. He wrote something on a piece of paper and handed it to the officer. "Go to that address and bring the man here at once, if you can find him,” lie said. The officer saluted and went out. In alKiut fifteen minutes, during which time I had produced some cigars and we all sat smoking, he re turned with a shivering, demoralized, opium-scented, whisky-rotten wretch, who quailed before tho steely gaze of tho superintendent. Then his eyes fell on the major, and he started, for, after all the years, thy fallen physi cian recognized the man of the world. "Sit down," said the superintendent, and the quivering wretch fell into a chair. At the superintendent's command a stenographer now quietly made his ap pearance and sat near his chief, with pencil ready. "What is your name?” asked the superintendent. “Tortoni,' was the reply, with a side look at the major to see if he nailed the lie. " 'M! What was it before it was Tortoni?” asked the superintendent. The wretch writhed in his chair. "Speak quick," said Byrnes. "It will be better for you.” "I was born Tortoni," said the fel low, doggedly. "Ah! Then how did you come to adopt the name Sigmotta. under which you practiced medicine?" asked the superintendent, blandly. The Italian turned ashy white and shook with fear. “Do you know why you were brought here?” asked the superintend ent. Sigmotta shook his head. “No,” he muttered "To answer to the charge of mur der.” Sigmotta leaped to his feet and stood like a wild animal, panting be fore the calm man of clubs. "It is a lie!” he cried, hoarsely. “A foul lie! Of whose murder am I ac cused? Who is my accuser?” "You have several accusers.” re plied the superintendent. “And you are accused of inciting one Luigi Dambo to the murder of Nita Barlotti, once a performer in Pacho Maligni's circus, and also inciting this same Dambo to the murder of Maligni him self. You had made an attempt on his life and failed. You recall the oc currence —the last night of Mallgnl’s clrcuß, when you put a bullet through Ms cheek?” (To be continued.) QUEER PEOPLE OF THE WORLD Definitions Unfamiliar to Most Geo graphical Students. If a person were confined to ono text-book, the best one to choose would be a dictionary, since it gives an inkling of every art, science or profession known to mankind. A study of the dictionary is always interesting and instructive, and a simple turning of its pages will acquaint us with many things of which we have never previously heard. Notice what a fund of information is contained in the fol lowing definitions: Amphiscians are Ihe people who in habit the tropics, whose shadows in one part of the year are cast to the north and in the other to the south, according as the sun is north or south of their zenith. The Antiscians are the inhabitants of the earth living on different sides of the equator, whoso shadows at noon are cast in contrary directions. Those living north of the equutor are antis cians, to those living south of that line, and vice versa. The shadows on one side are cast toward the north and upon the other townrd the south. The Ascians are the people who live in a land where, at a certain time of each year, they have no shadows at noon. All the inhabitants of the tor rid zone are Ascians, they having a vertical sun twice a year. The Periscians are the inhabitants of the polar circle, whose shadows, during some portions of the summer, must In the course of the day move entirely around and fall toward every point of the compass. FOX, HAWK AND CAT. Mix-Up Resulted Disastrously for Bird of Prey. Foxes are not easily domesticated. They are distrustful creatures, and al ways pine lor freedom; but In rare in stances reynard loses his wildness and responds, after a fashion of his own, to human kindness. Of such a one a dally paper tells a pretty story: Ned is a tame fox so well trained and of such good intentions that lie will not touch any of the poultry on the place. Chickens feed near Ills box, and he acts as if he liked their society. Doubtless they serve to render his confinement less irksome. One morning recently a large chlck en-hawk swooped down and caught a chicken close to the box where the fox is chained. Ned, hearing the noise, sprang out and caught the hawk by the leg. The bird released the chick en and settled its free claw deep Into the fox’s nose. Keynard squealed, but he hung to the hawk's leg. At this moment a cat that had be come attached to the fox heard Ned's cries of pain, and rushing out she sprang upon the hawk and clawed its back. That made the hawk let go the fox’s nose very suddenly to protect itself from this new foe. It tried to claw the cat, and while thus engaged, the fox set his teeth into its head and shook the life out of It. Soon after this Ned and the cat were seen lying down side by side, in great amity and contentment. —Youth's Com panion. A "MAN OF STEADY HABITS." But the Habits Were Not Such as to Recommend Him. It was a very angry man who met an acquaintance on the street the other day. "I thought you told me that D. was a man of steady habits," were his first words following the usual salutation. "I said I required a man of absolutely steady habits, and you were very positive in your assur ance that tho man in question was such a one.” "Well, has he proved otherwise?” “Why* man, he is drunk all of the time; in fact, I do not think he has drawn a sober breath since he has been with me.” "Then what are you jumping on me for? Your own statement bears out just what I told you about him. I have known I). for the past ten months, and I know that he has been drunk during all of that period, and If that isn't being a ‘man of steady habits,' I'd like to know what it is?” How He Met the Crisis. When David Graham Phillips, author of "Her Serene Highness," was a very young man. he applied for work on a Cincinnati paper. "What can you do?" said the editor. "I can try anything,” replied the young man. Thinking to rid himself of further importunities for an assignment, the editor said: “Well, write an article on bread.” It was a trying moment for the am bitious'youngster, but he never flinch ed. All that night ho collected ma terial. and the next day reported to , the surprised oditor with a bright and newsy article on "The Bakeries of Cincinnati.” The young reporter was immediate ly engaged. Sullivan's New Amusement. John J. Sullivan distinguished him self the other day by throwing a hand ful of money into a crowd. You are improving. John. Once your boast .vas that you had "money to throw to the birds.” Throwing it to people is much better, but don’t throw any bad money, John.—Exchange. Moon’s Highest Mountain.

SPORTING PROSPECT BASEDALL NEVER MORE POPULAR New Leagues Constantly Being Organ ized—Vast Number of Uniforms Sold—Basket Ball Attracts Profes sionals—Revival of Push Ball. Charles B. Whitney, head of the firm of C. I». Whitney & Co., large eastern manufacturers and dealers in sporting goods, in an interview at Denver a few days ago. said: "It is wonderful, the number of uni forms used in some of the large cities. For instance, in Denver, three years ago, sixty full sets of uniforms were sold. As these will average about ten to the set. there were 6(H) uniforms sold in this city alone. That was a larger number in proportion to population than was sold in any other city in the country in that year. Last year there were sixty-eight teams in organized baseball, and each of these teams had at least two sets of suits. The number in these sets vary. For instance, New York's team ordered two full sets of twenty in each, making forty suits. Then think of the number of amateur clubs that buy uniforms in a year. It is diflicult to figure up what tho grand total will be, but it furnishes work for many people. Tho indications are that the season of 11)03 will he the greatest known in baseball. The or ganized leagues are In better shape, as they have agreed and are prepared to make the game go for the money in it. There are more leagues, major and minor, than ever before. Amateur and semi-professional teams are springing up in towns where ball has been played in a very indifferent fashion for years. I would estimate that there will be twenty per cent, more baseball leagues and baseball teams than ever before. "Professional basket ball Is a new game that has taken well in the Fast during the last winter. It lias done so well that it will furnish a means for occupation in tlie winter time to pro fessional baseball players. The game is a much faster game than that played by amateurs, being under rules made especially to govern professionals. Crowds have turned out to see the game, giving America a new winter sport Next winter there will be dozens of professional basket ball teams where this year there was one. a rather peculiar thing came home to us the other day. The Overman Sporting Goods Company, now tint of existence, made n large •push ball’ sev eral years ago. trying to popularize that game, which was then new. It did not take on this side of the water, but was transplanted to England, where it was taken up with enthusi asm. Now it is being brought back into this country, with the chance of becoming very popular. The tlrst push balls made were really footballs on an enlarged scale, having tin* big bladder like affair In the center. Now the ball is made over a frame. The old balls cost about $75 to manufacture, while the new ones are rather within tho means of those caring to take up the game.’’ Dash Toward South Pole. Further particulars from the Antarc tic relief ship Morning, which arrived in New Zealand recently, show that the dash for the south made by a party from the Discovery, which resulted in establishing the record for the furthest point south, commenced December lf.th last, when Captain Scott, of the Discovery, Dr. Wilson and Lieut. Shackleton left the depot which had b <-n established in 80.4 South ami reached latitude 82.17 South, not 80.17 West, as previously reported. Their party was absent forty-five rlays. After establishing a depot sixty live miles south of the ship, the snow got soft, and Captain Scott and his companions had to drag the sledges. This was most arduous labor and lasted twenty-nine days, when another depot was established in 80.30. There the explorers discarded their superflu ous gear, started southward on the dit-h December 15th, reached 82.17 January 1, regained the southermost depot January 15th and returned to their ship February 3d.
