How It Osme to the eeoune of
Mr. Baeoomb.
The telephone rang briskly in Mrs.
Howard Baseputb's pleasant home,
m. and, stepping to it, she received this
en message from her husband:
re. "Hello! Is that you, Lottie? I've
m- concluded to leave for New York this
ad noon. The boy is on the way to the
house for my grip. You know what
I'll need for a week or ten days' ab
sence. Get your sister to stay with you
as for company. Good-by, dear, s'long.
ee Take care of yourselt"
t't Then he rung off, and Mrs. Bas
comb went in search of the satchel,
which she packed with a deft hand.
She was a young woman, sensible,
I well balanced, and nothing ever dis
l's tnrbed or annoyed her to the extent of
' making her fidgety or nervous. Being
in robust health, she hardly knew
ad what nerves meant. She was self-re
- liant, but domestic, and absorbed in
her home life, which comprised her
p world. She had perfect faith in her
husband, or else pretended to have,
and cheated herself comfortably with
the delusion. And she never crossed
any bridges until she came to them.
She knew that her husband had in
tended going to New York on the fol
lowing day, and did not wonder or
ponder over his change of plans
When the messenger came for the
satchel she sent it carefully packed.
just uas she knew her husband wanted
it. She added nothing to its usual con
tents, and subtracted nothing. Yes,
stay. She did take out his seven-shooter,
every chamber of which was loaded,
and laid it on the table under the
mirror, in the back parlor.
"Rowdy has one revolver with him.
That will have to do him this trip. I
like to have one handy in case I should
need it."
S She smiled and smiled again without
K being a villain. The idea of needing
d firearms seemed so incongruous and
a absurd.
In the afternoon she went up to her
It home to "borrow her sister," as she
t expressed it. But Miss Madgie had
gone away with some young friends,
,I and was engaged to spend the night at
the house of a schoolmate. So Mrs.
Bascomb returned home alone.
Two men stood in the doorway of an
unused flight. of office stairs and read
an evening paper.
They were much occupied in discuss
ing one item among the personal news.
I' was this:
'The Rubber Horseshoe company is
an assured fact Mr. Howard Bas
come drew sixteen thousand dollars
from the M. & M. bank to-day, the in
vestment of the branch company
formed here, and will leave for New
York to-morrow. A capital of eighty
thousand dollars is assured."
"Do y' see!" ejaculated the younger
and smaller of the two men. "Drew
sixteen thousand dollars in spondulicks.
Goes home with it in his vest pocket,
blow me of he don't" 1
"Maybe not, pard. S'posin' it's a
certified check?"
"Then there'll be a reward offered to
get it back--see?"
"Jim, g'roun' to th' bank an' And out
which and whether it were," suggest
ed the older man.
"Bank elaussed," remarked Jim, sen
"S'pose it air. Did yer expect to send a
in yer card to the cashier, or the pres
ident? Get aroun' an' interview th'
janitor. Represent yerself as Mister *
Bascomb's confdential bizness man,
carn't yer?"
Jim started off at once without wait
ing to give his 'pard" any outline of '
his plan. He was gone an hour, but ,
when he returned he was freighted
with intelligence.
"Bills," he chuckled, "five-hundred
and one-thousand dollar bills-whewl!
An' he'll sleep with them about his
honorable pusson to-night--mebbe."
"Does yer know the house?" asked
the other man, after a spell of silence.
"I don't, pard. But l've looked it up t:
in the d'rectory, and it's as handy as a
mitten on yer nose. Let's go and get d
somethin' wet to improve our minds.
It's 'tween as this time-you outside, a
me in-savey?" b
The rascals, who, in appearance at
least, might, have passed for honest
men, walked out of the doorway and i
parted company, to avoid the eagle(
eye of the police, which would have b
recognised in their duality a conspiracy b
against law and order.
When Mrs. Bascomb returned from
her visitit was dark. She had staid to
supper, and as the girl opened the h
door she saw that she was somewhat t
"Wyhat is it, Kitty?" she asked,
rather gravely, because the girl was tl
inclined to get fiustrated easily.
'"Oh, mem, what was the name of
the girl as lived here before I came?"
she responded with a counter question. i
"Her name? Sarah something, I can- h
not remember just now-why?"
"Oh, there was a Joung man here
looking for his sister,but her name was
Annie Donovan. He said he hadn't
men her in ten years, and she, was
grown up now, and he talked butch
fully about her. It would bring the i
tears till your eyes, ma'am, to her
heard him."
"Kitty, I wouldn't gossip with p
strange men if I were you. It isn't
safe He probably was a tramp, and
all that story about hkis sister was just
made up oct of whole cloth. What hi
else did he want?' F
"Nothing, ma'am, and I didn't let ti]
him inside the kitchen door. Heb
warn't no tramp. an' I'm sure be were
tellin' the truth.t"
Mrs. Bascomb did not proloeg the
argument, but busied herself until bed
time with some household daties, di
which were really in the line of pleas- -
ures to her womanly nature. Then it,
she saw that the house was locked ua Pa

"What do you want?" Her voice did

But she could not outwit the disap

He sprang to intercept her, and
struck his foot against the folding bed,
,r throwing himself across it in his at
W tempt to retain his balance. There
was a grinding, whirring sound and a
complete disappearance of one of the
principals in this affair.
A On that same night a belated citizen
hurrying home was accosted from the
0 lower window of a house he was pass
ing in the residence portion of the city.
"Sir, oh, sir!'"
He stopped, for it was a woman's
voice, pitched at an alarm key.

was now shut up and looked merely a

When the patrol wagon arrived this
bookcase became an object of imme

was stationed on either side and two at
the foot. Mrs. Bascomb and the now

bleeding from a chance incision as the
bed had shut up with him in an ex
plosive embrace.
"So, Clever Jim, you are at it again!
Here you are," saMd one of the police
men, as he snapped the bracelets on
his wrist. "Your pal's not in it this

by local applications as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the mu
cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is
entirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken out
and this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
ninecases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition
of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars forany
case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that
cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.
