S The sender's name was not on the i box containing it, and lnaturally the re 8 cipient was suspicious of it. lie was e accustomed to drink wine with his r dinnter andl kept a IHittle on his side- " board. The bottle he reeivtsled he put In the same place, ibtendilg to look into the matter. Otne evening he got hold of it by mistake and took a few w swallows before he noti'ced that it had n a peculiar tlavor. lie was made vii, lently 1ll, hbt recovered. An exami nation of the contents of the bottle from which he had drunk was made a and showed poison. o Thl'le first thiing I did was to sit down it with him aind iln a lonig interview drew s out all the informution he gave mei that might furnish me with a clew. ' But unfortunately no clew was to be 1 extracted from anything he said. Ile had no enemies. mian or woman, lie o was happily married, and his wife had recently presented him with their first J child, a fine boy. I questioned him to closely as to whether lie had jilted any h girl to marry his wife. and be said c there were no such complications, even t remote, in his case. My next move was an examination a of the handwriting of the address on b the box in which the wine had been h received. I was told that it was not b the writing of any one he had ever a known, though some one of his ac- I quaintances might have written it, dis- a guising the hand. There was no use I giving it to an expert in chirography I until I could furnish a specimen of the a writing of some person or persons who t might have committed the crime. I We detectives in cases where we E have no clew usually begin at home, so to speak, and work outward. But I in this case there seemed nothing for I me to investigate within the household. It consisted of Mr. Cordon, the man upon whom the attempt at murder had 1 been made; his wife, who loved him c dearly, and one servant, a woman who t had ived with them a short time and c could have no possible motive what- t ever for taking his life. 1 Desiring to leave no stone unturned in eliciting information, I asked for an t Interview with Mrs. Gordon. I went over a ground with her supplementa- t ry to that I had gone over with her 1 husband, but could not elicit a word as t to relations Mr. Gordon had had with i any one that could possibly lead to a motive for murder. But a day or two later I received a note from the lady 1 mentioning a fact she had forgotten. Soon after their marriage her husband had mentioned discharging a man from 1 his employment who had acted very disagreeably, saying that he would some day get even with Gordon. I Where had I seen the handwriting with which the note had been written? I I had not seen it, but something like it. Nevertheless I could come to no conclusion in the matter and thought r no more about it at the time, but later, when studying the address on the box I containing the poisoned wine, it struck me that there was something in it that 1 reminded me of the writing of Mrs. Gordon. Was she the criminal? We detectives follow any clew, no matter how. repugnant. 1 took Mrs. Gordon's note and the address of the poisoned wine to an expert in chirog p raphy, and he pronounced the latter to Sbe an attempt to disguise the hand- I writing of the former.. It is only of late years that insanity bas begun to be carefully studied with reference to crime. We first heard of Stheir relationship in crinnal cases of so called ehtnotional insanity. We now hear of it in cases where the symptoms I are very subtle. Not for the world would I betray the secret on which 1 had stumibled until I1 had gained an insight into whether . Mrs. Gordon had really attempted the Scrime and if she had whetber sbe did r so in her right mind. I knew that Ssince the birth of ber child the physi cian who had attended her on that oe casiuon had made her other visits. I There are two confidants in families- y the doctor and the pastor. I congluded to confide my secret to the doctor. I called on him in his house and I asked him if he had ever noticed any evidence of insanity in Mrs. Gordon. I- He looked at me with a very singular Sexpression and asked me why I wished to know. I replied that I desired a . reply to my question, whereupon he r claimed that the secrets of his protes Sdlon were sacred property. Then I told a him that Mrs. Gordon had committed a Scrime; that she had attempted to pol , son her husband. Not till I had told him the whole 8 story did be confess that he had sus f pected her ever since the birth of her Schild of puerperal insanity. It had Sshown Itself in a feeling of hatred for : her husband, which had been noticed only by the doctor. He had been look Sing for conflrmatory symptoms, but a had thus far not detected any. He Swas very much shocked and suggested Sthat I say nothing about the matter for Sthe present since the news might affect I the patient's husband. SI was glad ,eough to throw the re Ssponsibility a apon his shboulders. He - told Gordon that he suspected bhis wife was suffering from puerperal insanity b and that she must be carefully watch Wed. I learned from the doctor later that she had entirely recovered and that ber husband did not know that I she had tried to Mkill him. Sand treasurer amy t heM by the samet perou.

On the cp posite side of the halt was anoltlter flat in which lived a couple wh, tlr ested Miss W'ilkin-. There is notlluiii renlarkahle in this in:ll . unch as old i maids are usually supliosed to Ie,' iii terested in their leighlllors' atT:ir Whether or no tIri, is the case. Mit-s W\ilkins. who Lby the hye was ery olh servant. noticed tIhat Mrs What's-tier name, nac·-s the hall, always Mor.t ;a t sorrowful coulltelnalce. The next thing Miss Wilkins noticed I, was that whenever she was lying t awake betweein midnight and 3 or 4 I o'clock she would hear a footstep com ing up the stairs, and on reaching the story on which she livted the soundl would end in the closing of a dioo t There being but ,one other flat on tlhe I floor besides Miss Wilkins', the door was undoubtedly closed by one of that , other fiat's inmates. An idea struck Miss Wilkins right between the eyes. Mr. What's-his name, her neighbor, was the cause of his wife's melancholy. It was he who came home so late What wonder that the lady was miserable with such a husband: Was he dissipated? An other idea Ipopped Into Miss Wilkinsa head. Mr. What's-his-name must make his living by gambling She had once known a woman whose husband was a gambler, and the wife was always the picture of misery. The problem was solved. That It was solved correctly was proved ly the fact that no one was stirring In the neighboring flat In the morning till II o'clock. Then a waiter from a restaurant brought a tray cov ered with a napkin, knocked at the , What's-their-name's door and handed In what Miss Wilkins was sure was the husband's breakfast. The reason she was sure it was the man's breakfast was because she bad often seen the tray sitting on the floor beside the opposite door for a waiter to remove. and there was but one coffee cup and one plate. Undoubtedly Mrs. Whats her-name got her own breakfast at a proper hour. Miss Wilkins gave music lessons. and an hour when she was sure to be occupied with a pupil was between 10 and 3 in the afternoon. She watched for Mr. What's-bis-name to go out, but never saw him, consequently she sur mised that be left home during the hours that she was always engaged. One 1st of May Mr. and Mrs. What's their-names moved out of the flat op posite Miss Wilkins. The lady attend. ed to the moving, Mr. What's-his-name not appearing while it was in progress. Indeed. it was done in the afternoon Miss Wilkins inferred that since he was up all night at cards or whirling a roulette machine he must have his sleep in the morning and have his poor wife to do the moving. Anyway, Miss Wilkins never saw the husband, but a mental picture of him that she con jured up remained In her mind. It resembled Mephistopheles. That was the end of the What's their-names for Miss Wilkins. Three years later the spinster got a husband of her own. The moment she saw him all that antagonl* to men which had been with her since she had passed twenty-five-in other words. since It began to look as if she had been left out of the matrimonial king dom-vanlshed. There was something so benevolent. so noble, so winning In hils face that she fell before him like grain before a scythe. The gentleman's name was 8miley. Miss WilIrins said It should be 8miling. since his beautiful face always wore a smile and that smile was his most lovely feature. He seemed very much pleased that Miss Wilkilns was pleased witb bhim. for be was a widower look ing for a wife. Having every reason to suppose that he would be accepted by Miss Wilkins. be proposed. and they were married. Mr. 8miley was very regular in bis habits and very domestic. He was a magazine editor. and his hours at his ofice were the same as those of other persons, though sometimes he brought manusaeripts bome and spent the even ing readlng them. But be always ex eused himself so pleasantly for thus depriving his wife of his company that she forgave him. One Sunday afternoon while strolling they passed an apartment house. "I once occupied a fat in there," said SMiss Wilklns. "Indeed! When was that?" "Four years ago. We occupied the second story west flat A couple lived opposite whom I shall never forget. The man was a gambler, and his wife was the most unhbappy ereature I ever met." "How did you know that the man was a gambler?" "Why. he was out all night and lay abed till noon. Beides his wife show ed by her expression that be was some thing dreadfuol." Mr. Smlley turned and looked in his wife's face with every appearance of surprise. "When did the couple move ont?" be asked. "In May. 190--." "Great bheavens! Do you know who I am? I'm that man. I wasn't a gapm bler. I was managing editor of the Daily Advertiser and couldn't get home till 4 in the morning. My wjfe was mtserable because she was sufertlag from theI disease of which she died."
