Somo hours beforo my arrival hor
maid had Informed her that tliis brace
let which had boon recently under re

ing from tho jowclcr was missing It
had been laid carelessly on tho dressing
taolo when it arrived nnd had disap
peared Search had been mado in
ovcry likely and unlikely spot servants
had been questioned and ns usual
under such circumstances had all in
dignantly and Gomo tearfully denied
any knowlcdgo of tho missing trinket
which apart from its Intrjnsio value
was doar to Marian from sissociatJens
connected with it I could euggest no
ctopa for ifca recovery beyond tlio ordi
nary English altornatlvo of communi
cating with tho police
This I found had been already dono
tivoughovldontlyiiiy friends had small
hopo of any good results- following upon
tho exertions of that estimable force of
wliom according to IJaunah no ono in
Ireland stood In awe Altogether it
wna an uncomfortablo stato of things
and although wo diseuisud tho subject
in all its bcaring8 entering into tlio
most minuto details of any burglaries
wo had previously heard of or read
about wo only succeeded in making
ourselves dlstlnctlyuncasy and had to
dccldoat last as at first that it was
most mystciious
Directly after dinner I begged that I
might bo allowed to retire for tho night
03 my Journey had thoroughly tired mo
Marian took mo to my room and wish
ing mo a good eights rest left mo to tho
nunlstratlons of Hannah whoso equa
nimity was thoroughly restored and
who was in a stato kof discursive con
tentment very frying to tho patienco of
ono whqsoeycS woro closing fast under
thosootlilng process of hair brushing
and whoso solo idea was bed and
that fspccdily But at last I got rid of
my talkatlvo attendant and having as
a last precaution looked under my bed
my constant practice though if for ono
moment I had supposed there could bo
anything there nothing would have in
duced mo tb look I retired to rest and
woseoon wrapped in dreamless slumber
After I suppose somo hours I was
awakened by a loud noiso closo to my
bed as of somo heavy body falling on
tho floor from a height but being only
partially roused I drowsily conjectured
it wa3 fancy on my part nnd turned
f over on my side preparatory to again
composing myself to sleep This move

onough to understand aoaprellniinary eircd Hannah to draw up tho last thing
nt night that I might enjoy tho bight
of tho sunrise if by somo untoward
and unusual event I should not sleep
I on lato as usual Tho room was flooded
I with bright moonlight and I had an
uneasy feeling aa I gazed at tho whito
cspanso of toilet cover on tho dressing
tablo before tho window that there was
borne thing rong about ita appearance
Suddenly I remembered that I had
certainly placed my watch and chain

unkind allusions
to my frequent visits
to tho Regents Park gardens oo being
paid to next of kin
Certainly I did resort often almost
every day to tho monkey houso to
study tlio attributes of its interesting
occupants Perhaps somo lingoriivf
infatuated idea possessed mo that it
might bo my brilliant mission to dis
cover tho missing link atanynito
my notebook of that period contains
many finely worded desirei to watch
tho agilo monkey in itinativo habitat M
and to traco tho simian likeness totho
human amid tho primeval forests of
another hemisphere
At length I was onabled to partially
fulfill my dreams
Having rocoived a warm invitation
from an old school friend to spend
somo weeks with her at lier homo In
tho west of Ireland I btartod with my
maid as osoort for Bailynaghadoc
My friond Marian Edwards hod mar
ried three years before an Irish gentle
man of somo property and I had never
seen cither her husband or heruclf
since her marriago eo that it was with
delightful anticipations of rcnewinir an
old friendship and forming a now quo

tugged toward tlio foot of tho bed In
stinctively I chitched my retreating
coverings and in spito of sorfio unseen
opposing agency succeeded in restor
ing them to their former position only
to fool them again slowly drawn away
Three times this agitating plicnomoiion
At last I determined to abandon
somo portion of tho bedclothes rctain
iT3 only tho sheet in which I wrapped
myself tightly and watched tho blank
ets etc pulled to tho floor and slowly
dragged under tho bed Motionless
with terror I lay scarcely daring to
breathe whilo numerous and dire pos
sibilities occurred to my distracted im
agination Vas my unccn vkitor a

from tlio P C 192 tho well in

of lioino rule Could tho Land Lcaguo
bo about to mako on cxaruplo of so in
significant a unit ns myself
Alter a space which seemed to mo
interminable although it could havo
been only of a fow minutes duration
my nocturnal visitant who had been
emitting sundry very terrifying snorts
and suppressed demoniacal cackles put
otrt a hairy hand and grasped tho edgo
of tfco bedstead farthest from mo blow
ry drawing to its full licight tlio body
cif a rargo baboon clad in a species of
loooo tunic Round its neck was bu
ppndcd my chain whilo tho watch
srfill attached to tlio chain was hold in
its hand I gazed horror btricken upon
this fearful sight recalling in a kind of
agony all tbo stories I had heard nnd
read of tho cxtrcmo ferocity of tlio
baboon remembering too that my
tween licr soba that P C C 1JJ2 had J001 wnw locked and that I was
toid her tho day before wo started that
Ireland was aeoantry whero nobody

Tills was in my worthy Hannahs
oyos Hro dimas of barbarism j and
whcn slio proceeded to btato frapn In
fonuation received from
tho camo reliable norrreo that bcinj
urardcrcd in ones bed wes eonsMcrod
in Ireland quito an ordhmr and ppaee
ful way of doptrrtms tW life I felt
that it behooved mo to assert myself
trn ly at tho mercy of a bruto almost as
Inro as end Infinitely moro powerful
rtian myself
It was not in this way that I had so
ardently desired to study tlio faseinat
Itt5 ways of the Oimis and as I thought
of my brotlicrs laughing wishes at part
ing with mo I was struck with a senso i Oazctte
o tiro grim humor of tho Lituation
Cut tiro ImmoTom aspect did not ap
peal to mo for long a3 I watched with
fascinating cagcnioss tlio movements of
nnd finding all eoqthinjc orjurseirta of my tcrriblo visitor With uncouth
no avail I administered a shaift shambling stepn tlio creature walked to
lng which had the desired ofrcet and tho window and by tho light of tlio

Tlio prospective pleasure of my vSt
was largely onlmnocd by tlw msoTcy
tiiat Mr Ardagh wliom I KkoJ eietjy
J tw him was a proat hmr rjd ein
dent of zoology andhadqaitoaTnertrtj
orlo of tamo and wild animals to which
ho was constantly adding interesting
specimens I promised myself prcat
plcasuro in inspecting tlio ammals and
cultivating their ocqunintanco on tiio
morrow but was recalled from my
uJoasurabk onticiDatlons to dovoto all
porato it and k tossed tlio watch con
bemptuoiwly aside tlwugli it remained
dangling from its chain dowi tho ani
mals back
Onco I mado a slight uound but my
undcsirablo visitor resented it by do
savago a spring in my direction that I
feigned profound slmriber and only
ventured to open my oyes after sovcral
minutes of strained expectation that I
lossly npokon about tho extraordinary
physical forco in tho -fore limbs of tho
qundrumana When I did daro to look
again I saw that tho baboon had Boated
itself before tho toilet glass and by tho
aid of my brushes nild combs was at
tempting to roduco its bushy locks to
somo order
Finding this task n fruitless ono it
proceeded to ransack my jowol case
which Hannah had carelessly left open
and ono by ono raamlnod various ar
ticles it contained Rings and broodies
and bracelets tho creature appeared to
approvo of but a jowol comb for tho
hair and a diamond star it evidently
did not at all appreciate flinging them
down and snarling at them savagely
I dared not attract tlio creatures at
tention to myself by making any sound
and lind to watch in silent agony this
rifling and appropriation of my most
cherished possosslona by an unapprc
clativo baboon 1 At last it turned away
from tlio window and camo in n leis
urely manner toward tlio bod oyclng
mo stealthily whilo it advanced and
having reached tlio bodsido stooped
down and proceeded to draw out from
under tho bed tho blankets of which It
had despoiled mo at a very early stago
of tho operations
Upon theso blankets it tried to find a
comfortablo resting place but after
turning and twisting uneasily for somo
minutes emitting short granta of ill
temporand dissatisfaction it got up
and to my horror lay down on tho bed
across my fcett Tbp discomfort and
pain were almost unbearable but fort
unatoly after a short timo tlio baboon
rolled further down ho bed pnd lay at
tho very foot with its face turned in my
direction Its regular breathing soon
showed it was asleep but I remained in
an agony of fear lest somo movomont of
mino should awaken tho bruto
How tho remaining hours of tho night
wore away I know not to mo they
seemed interminable But when tho
sounds of tiro awakened hcmselrold
mado themselves lrcard nry terror In
creased for I feared that the baboon
would certainly bo roused and attack
mo Still It slept and still I lay and
watched it until Ilannas knock at my
door awakened mo to consciousness
that this could not go on forever
In n very low voico I bado my maid
call Mrs Ardagh and when Marians
voice was heard outsido demanding
anxiously what had happened I Jiur
riedly explained tlio dreadful situation
To my surprise ebo exclaimed in what
sounded almost a tono of relief Why
that must bo Molly Oh liow pleased
Tom will bo Plcaso lio quite still until
I fetch him My feellng3 whilo I lay
and awaited tho end of this inert un
pleasant adventure may bo better im
agined than described but nt last Mr
Ardaghs voico was heard outsido tho
door calling in tones of nuthority
Molly Molly comohcre
Tlio baboon sprang to her feet gavo
a startled glmico round tho room and
rushing to the fireplace mado its exit
on it had mado its entrance by tho
chimney When tlio cxtrcmo tension
was relaxed my ncrvco gavo way aud I
fainted Mrs Ardagh and Hannah
having forced tho lock off my door ap
plied rootoratives nnd after somo timo
I regained uid was able
to hear a detailed account of tlio capt
ure of tiro baboon which Mr Ardagh
accomplished with much difficulty
Her escape had not been discovered
until lato on tho night of my arrival
nnd tho idea of licr being in tiro house
had never occurred to him as all tlio
doors and windows were carefully fast
ened and tiro chimney never suggested
itself to him as a mode of ingress
though it hod evidently appeared to
tho fancy of Molly
Many of my possessions which had
been appropriated by this kleptomaniac
baboon were restored to me but my
watch was hopelessly damaged in
Mollys ascent of tho chimney In tho
pocket of her tunic was discovered
with my trinkets Marians bracelet
which had so mysteriously disappeared
proving beyond a doubt that Moiiy had
mado her cscnpo much earlier than was
at first supposed
I stayed at Ballynnghader only long
enough to recruit my strength suffi
ciently to travel nnd then started for
home accompanied by Marian For a
long whilo my nerves did not recover
from tho shock tlioy had sustained
Every ono wa3 very considerate about
it oven my brothers did not chaff me

It may surprlso you to know that
servablo in assuming fictitious names
certain peculiarities which ore to bo ex
pected in the false namo which serve to
indicato that it is not tho real name of
tlio man who claims it Of courso
when a man determines to adopt a ficti
tious namo there is no way to predict
what tho now ono will be but it is
pretty safo to guess that it will possess
certain known characteristics
If you havo not investigated tho
subject you very likely imagino that
when John C Brawn finds it neces
sary to assume another namo ho is
likely to becomo Georgo T Jackson
Well this is not tlio caso Moro than
60 per cent of fictitious names havo no
ehango except In tho surname John
C Brown becomes John C Baker
Well of courso this is only another
case of tlw ostrich hiding herself by

John W Baker tlwn James C
Baker Ninety per cent of tiw ficti
tious names assumed to escape deteo
fckni contain at least ono of tbo initials
of the mans truo nanw
It Isnt an easy matter for a man to
