It , being late, he leisurely proceeded to Ids room. The gentleman's' room being on the ground floor, the room was supplied with Inside shutters fthat had already creaked many times since bis valuable rurchase). l'retendlng to be very tired, he gent pulled off his clothes and turned the light so low that tho room was almost In darkness. Then, without closing tho shutters, he proceeded to hang the shirt on the window, leaving the glistening stud on the bosom, upon which tne faint rays of gaslight dazzled and flatbed as tbo summer winds watted the material from side to side. Then be lay down where he could see ' the movements ot the shirt. He did not wait long before Its actions became very lively, In fact It finally Jumped clear inrougii ino winuow uut waa gone oniy n fow moments when It came flying back again on to the floor.

As he entered the hotel bo waa surprised to notice mat tne proprie tor, tho bell boy and tbo porter were each wearing live-karat studs, and as the cook pasted the window there glist ened on his dirty blue shirt a diamond of the samo slzo. Our friend thinking the thing rather bold, applied to the city detective for assistance and had given him about half the necessary Informa tion when, as the detective threw open his coat (yo thunders, could his eyes de ceive hliul, there sparkled a 5-karat dla- monu. AiunKing mere must uo soma mistake, the gentleman at once pro ceeded to tho Mayor's olllce. He was told tho Mayor had gone to open' tho 1'ollco court. Being by this time much excited, ho rushed In to the court breath less and excited.

Tho court Itself had one on the bosom of Justice and many of tho honorable attorneys were f osing ao mai me jewels niigni snow io he best advantage. Our friend now concluded to drop the matter as his only real loss oonsisieu in getting mat uui-ton-hole repaired.
