>^HICKE8TER CARR had two
;V WW ot thinking deeply. One
^ was to close his eyes and press
the tips of his fingers together. The
- *h{r ?u to fix hlB gaze on somciRing
in front intently.
As he sat on the car seat, swaying
.with the train, the importance of bin
thoughts took the boring form. He
was debating the problem of tailor or
> ready-made suit. There would be a
difference of $10. The tailor thought
was due to associatting with the
lice friends they were making out at
heir new home In the country, a sav;d
$10 was almost indispensable to
is salary of 150 a month.
His gaze happened to be upon a
pocket, a pocket that bulged and lookad.
unnatural. The owner was a big
than, with a furtive watchfulness in
his eyes. The eyes had noted all the
movements In the car and at once became
aware of the gaze on his pocket.
3areful1y he slid a hnnd over the
D'ulgc. At first ho had passed almost
unnoticed the little man. on whom a
roy's suit would fit nicely. He glared
at the little man. He studied hint.
He squirmed under the intent, rjxed
jyei. He tried to twist the bulge
rom view. He slipped a, newspaper
rrer it and under cover of the newspaper
sought to remove it altogether.
But he was nervous now. His
irm trembldd. As the hand went
lown into the pocket and then with

taper. On this end was a curiops
rcscent pierced by a scimitar, ea^h
e* with three diamonds.
T'i3 sun was slanting through the
ar window and it flashed on the i
ewol. The intent gaze did not fllckr
nor shift. Tho furtive eyep w-re
.'etching him covertly. i
But ClUekester did see. though the
antshlng tailor suit still occupied
Is mind. Tho hand under tho news- 1
at- moved more boldly now. and
ihlcVcstcr noted proceedings l>v the ]
tirrfn; of the newspaper. The bulge ,
Ba^ been placed on the car scat on ;
lib other side. The newspaper was
fread out to cover all. By the rise '
nd Call of certain parts he knew the 1
f'. was being distributed to tho
Wt pocket, tho hip pocket, and trousrs
pocket. The newspaper was
jlded and laid on the window end of !

Chlckerter was troubled. Somehow
is acimltnr-crcsccnt seemed familiar. ;
If course. In the newspaper. Never
avlng owned a diamond ho was fond '
t reading about flicm aud picturing !
Imaelt as having a pocketful. That
clmltar-crescent one was stolen from '
wealthy society woman. He had read
, in the newspaper.
Now the train began to slacken. Pas*
angers reached toward the racks for !
alt cases and wraps. The man oppo- I

Chichester held on-.for three seats,

The big man. in spite of his haste,
.ouldn't make much headway. As he
reached the platform Chickeslor threw
limsclf squarely 011 his hack. He was
jxcited now.
"Give it to me!" he reiterated.
A policeman was standing near.

with decision.
"I made no further explanation, and
he continued. 'But sweetheart, don't
you understand that i need not have
told you this? I might have kept it
all to myself. 1 am citing it to you

impersonal point of view. If anyone
had said to me that any woman in
the world would have so affected me
as did this American Beauty, I would
have sntd, "Tut, tut, you do not know

"Sometimes, Mrs. Margie. I wonder
Just what a woman does when a man
who still insists he loves her tells
her episodes with other women, for,
of course, I know that I am not
unique In this matter. 1 am sure that
many other men have tola many other
