Tho judge declares that not another living person would tackle tho Job, and LIghtnut, his mind occupied with the beautiful Frances, is greatly mystified. CHAPTER XXIV. (Continued.) "Why, rt, I dou't think you need he worrying but what they're all right," and the big policeman nodded confidently; "In fact thoro don't seem to bo no dainago at all." Ho added meditatively: "Which Is some won der, considering bow we had to lough-bouso Foxy Grandpa before we softened him down In bis cell th' other night." Hero his cheeks swolled and be sent a long sheaf of brown liquid at a grasshopper on the freshly whitened door-stones and got It, too, neatly missing tho polished toe of Jenkins' boot. "No, slrj" emphatic ally "I don't think you'll be hearing any holler from your lady lrlend when she goes to eh, what?" bo stared at Jeuklns blankly, for Jenkins bad coughed "Ob, excuso me!" and his big hand lifted apologetically to his mouth, whilo bis eyes rolled upward "What I just meant was that I know they're all to tho good; I went all over 'em!" "Ob!" I muttered, turning rather faint. I dropped the parcel and Jen kins picked It tip. Iiy Jove, for a mo ment, he came jolly near having to pick ine up, too, I waB that shocked nnd prostrated! "Tho only thing tho only thing 'tall " I hud to wait through an agon izing mpment whilo bis tongue gathered bis wad and peremptorily expelled It,' this time enlivoning tho cold, dead monotony of tho silver-gray macadam "was her I mean, was the pants." "Ah-h!" I put my hand to my side and looked at Jenkins appealtngly, hut ho was looking upward, his eyes kind of cast ovor like a bird's; tho linos of his mouth tlgbtoiicd to an arch and I know ho was suffering tool But we must try to stand It a little longor Just a littlo! Through ono Instant's respite, Mr. O'Koofo'a thick tongue was occupied In striving to glutenlzo tho cntiro wrappor of a much crushed and awful. ly yellow cigar. Then ho separated a mouthful from the cud and proceeded. "1 did notice with tlio logs, that ono of 'em was just u bit longer than th' other, and down at tho station wo was a wondering if " tho blown head of a crackling match drew a long, curving wbat-you-cuil-lt on tho smooth, .creamy masonry, and bo paused to Inump madly, Btrlvlng to coax a draft of smoke "wo wondered If 'twas intentional," His eyes sought mino Inquiringly. By Jovo, I was so frozen with hor Iror, I couldn't even look awuy; Just .olood there, holplosa, you know, and my Jolly monocle hanging limp couldn't havo lifted it to havo saved ,my Ilfo! Felt my sennoB Just grow 'Ins numb all tbo whilo with tho 'tragedy of tho thine, the thought a. 11 jJlJiJltzflj J. hy FRANCIS PERRY ELLIOTT ILLUSTRATIONS T XAYWAtens cojr?aYr & Br sobs-mswml this coarso monster's touch defiling tho dainty, gossamer garment that had shrouded hor aacred what-you-call-'oma Oh, It was awful! "Um ah, I seel It was, then!" ho was nodding with an nir of under standing, pausing in tho strugglo with the refractory cigar. His strained and reddened faco shaped sympathetical ly. "Just what I thought and told em!" ho bobbed with satisfaction. "I understand! You ain't got no need to mako no explanations to mo!" and ho lifted hia fat hand to restrain thom. "Why, my wire's own grandrathor had a club foot, and to her last day if Bho got outer bed on tho wrong sldo, tho old lady went a header sure oh, l know!" A moment before, I had thought that so far as tho mere matter of jolly miBery was concerned, I had sounded tho wbat-you-cnll-'ems; but now my dashed brain was reoling before this new horror! To think that she was hut oh, It couldn't bo! And yot I re called ominously that most of tho tlmo I had known her, I had only seen her sitting! "By-y-y the way, sir!" Ho closed one eye at me as ho carved from the brown beauty a halt Inch of Its iraxy bud, using for the maltreatment a per fectly brutal knife. "That was a neat try-on you made to copper tho thief yourself a Icetle lrregulnr, you know," ho shook his head at me, "but, as the captain said, we ain't making no point about thai with a gont like you suro' not!" another Imperisha ble lino of boauty upon tho receptive stone, and ho puffed inhalations of joy. "But I knew you never could get him to tho station I could have told you." "Oh!" I remarked, puzzled. By Jove, I had a dashed awful thought for a moment that I must bo losing' my Intelligence! I looked at Jenkins again, but ho had not yet come back to tho ground. "Oh, I'm on, sir!" Another one of those awful winks as his club scratched his helmet sideways. "You know I saw everything I was right there at the Kahoka, you know!" "Oh, that!" I said, understanding. For I knew then that ho was talking about Foxy Grandpa in my rooms. 1 had almost forgotten the jolly old vagabond, but it occurred to me that perhaps I ought to show some Inter est as they must have recaptured him along with the pajamas. "I say!" I chirped up. "did you havo much trouble about it getting him again, you know?" I Did Notice "Trouble?" O'Koefe's Up doubled contemptuously, "It was easy na but ter!" His hand spread, palm down ward, in an expresslvo gesture "Why, ho doublod right back to tho Kaho ka!" "ny Jovo, you know!" I exclaimed, startled. "Surest thing you know! I collared him right In front and with the goods!" Mr. O'Koofo expectorated eloquently. "My, but ho did put up an awful hollor said tho pajamas were his own nnd ho had Just had 'om made, And bluff well!" ho fanned the air for a moment In tho offort to find an nppropriato gesture "I'm I! . ..-iiiWflriri&il cawwry used to tbeso bwoII con men, but that gun was tho limit pulled out a card case, mind you, and lottors, and want ed mo to go with him to his club his club " tho big fellow doubled over In a rpasm of mirth that all but choked him. "I told him I'd glv'o him tho club if ho didn't go quietly for you seo I recognized him in a minuto; you can't lose them fronk kind! Be sides, ho give himself away; told mo ho'd overlook my conduct on this oc casion nnd tho other, if I would re lease him. Well, that was enough! X beckoned Jimmy Dwycr ncross and we run him down tho lino to tho sta tion. Oh, we got him there, but it wasn't easy for him! And there bo'll stay a while!" Ho had to pause and pump nlr, ho was so winded. "But it wouldcr tickled you," ho re sumed, using one of tho vestas I ex tended nnd pulling tho cigar until it almost flamed, "if you couldor seen tho grand-stand play this guy put up boforo the sergeant! But the old man just let him blow it all off; just sat there calm behind the desk, chewing away and Jabbing '"a pen through tho blotter, whilo this stiff fumed and spouted oh, something scandalous Bringing in tho names of mighty near all the Important people in New York; his friends, ho said! Oh, yes, he mentioned you 'in particular, sir!" and bin face expanded in a relish ink grin. "Dashed impudence!" I murmured feebly. "Oh, yes," cnrelessly, "but the sorgo quieted him Just purty near soothed him to sleep before ho got through, you know it's one of his ways!" his glance lifted solemnly. "Fine, you know!" I murmured ad miringly. I reflected approvingly up on what a dashed good thing it was to have a man in that position what ever it was who was of such a dev ilish mild and gentle temperament: the quiet word the soft answer the kindly remonstrance all that sort of thing, you know. "But, if no offense, there's Just one question I'd like to ask you, sir." He swung his club with a smiling, genial nlr. "Oh, dash it, no!" I responded ab sently. My eye had been suddenly attract ed by a feathery gleam of white through the trees. It waB slowly mov ing up the slope to a pavilion over looking the Tappan Zee. He drew nearer with a conflentlal air. "Just a little argument I had With the Legs." with tho old woman, you know, about them pajamas. Would you mind toll ing mo as man to man, y'undorstand If thoy gnrmonts la" bis voice droppod "Is like her real shape- tig ger, I mean h'm?" And he tapped the parcel lightly with, Mb stick. Jenkins cleared his throat loudly and Bhlfted tho pajamas to his other sldo. As for myself, I Just winced as under tho strolto of a what-you-calMt, but ono ond of my dashod brain was boing pulled by tho hashing play of tho dappling sunlight thoro upon "D.v Jovo, hor figuro exactly!" 1 ejaculated, staring. For It wob hor no, dash it, sho, i illjijlipi-" 31F I '3?V 'a Ai . w.wljtiJtoaiiy4-i-'.. moan! I had a perfectly clear view or her now as Bho paused on a littlo point and hung there looking out over the Hudson. In her hand waB n full blown, ripened rose, and her lips were Bhaplng'ln ravishing littlo pouts, as musingly sho blew tho petals from her. But go they would not, but hugged back In the arms of the light breezo, circling and fluttering about hor glorious sunny head like a swarm oC rosy butterflies. It made a pretty picture! "And what's more, they're Just her color, too!" I murmured tenderly, for getful of everything but her, unmind ful that I was not alono. For under my hand I could feel my Jolly heart quivering like a champagne cork, freshly unfettered and thrilling eager ly under tho Impulse of the mad, dancing, Joyous spirit within. "The one lovely woman In all tho world!" I breathed aloud, and I folt my eyes grow oddly moist. And for a minute I went off in a Jolly trance. "Oood-by, sir I" It was O'Keofe's voice oddly con strained. "Eh?" I ejaculated, blinking at him as I came back. Then I remembered but what waa It ho had been ask ing? Something "just, good-by!" he repeated with elaborate gentleness. Then, straight ening: "No offense, I hope, if wo lot it go at that I mean, I guess you won't miss It if wo don't shake hands?" I glanced at the glove3 he was drawing on. "Oh, dnsh it, no!" I responded al sently, and my eyes coasted up tho slope again then dropped back dis appointedly, for she had disappearec. within the pavilion. His helmet tossed as he looked back. "I guess we all've got our littlo prejudices," he remarked sententious ly; "1 know I have! I'm from the south!" And without another word, Mr. O'Keefe presented his broad back to us, and swinging Ms stick carelessly, sauntered down the drive. , "What the deuce!" I exclaimed, looking after him. "I say, Jenkinn, what did he mean?" jenKins- race expressed mild re proach and surprise. 'Van It possibly- matter, Blr?" tit questioned wearily. "Persous of r that sort, ryou knew, sir?" "Jovo!" I uttered, relieved. Jenkins' coldly elevated brows dis missed the matter from further con sideration. He lifted tho parcel wim a slight gesture of Inquiry. I had already come to a decision about It: I would send it to Billing Perhaps tho retrieving of the pajamon would have a soothing effect upon hlr. poor mind! I gave Jenkins instructions. "H'ml Of course, manage to speak with hire, alone," I cautioned, having thought or Judge Billings; "and don't forget the message." "Certainly, sir," said Jenkins atten tively. "I'm Just to. say: 'Mr. Light but's compliments, sir, and ho saya you'll know what to do with these." " I nodded. "Exactly, and I'll wait here but, 'oh, hurry, dash it!" And 1 looked longingly nt the pavilion and tried to feel If my part was right. He did hurry! By Jove, he was back almost Immediately and looking a bit rattled. "Yes, sir!" he coughed as I screwed my glass inquiringly "I got there just as tho Judge went into his room across the corridor, "and Mr. Billings opened the door the minuto 1 said 1 was from you. I gave him the package and tho message and ho took It ovor In a corner; and then In about a minute I heard him chuck it somo vhero and say some long word. He came back to mo, looking kinder irri tated and with his eyes snapping." "Oh!" I uttered nervously. "Eh, what did ho say, Jenkins?", Jenkins sighed. "Oh, well, sir, noth lng as you might say was anything, really; he Jorks out kinder crossly: 'Tell Mr. LIghtnut, I say one thing at a tlmo, and give him this!'" On the scrap of paper I clutched out of Jenkins' hand waa a crazy scrawl of just a half-dozen words: I'm a biped not a centlpedol I squinted through the dashed thing twice, but could mako nothing of it I even tried It backward! "Jovo!" Imuttored perplexedly. "It's rum, Jenkins!" Jenkins' mouth tightened and re- laxed. "H'm, what I thought, sir," he I responded soberly, "The demon rurn, I sir!" j (TO BE CONTINUED.)
