He got few assign ments, and these were chiefly obitu ary notices, church bazaars and's'rnall fires. The city editor did not have confidence In him. He bad displayed little of the Instincts that are essen tial to reporters who make names and are permitted to sign stories. But Mcintosh knew the stuff was In him and that some time or other, be would show it. ' ' One afternoon the city editor walk ed hurriedly from hlsfoom to the local room. In his hand was a piece of yellow paper and he was excited. "Where is Davis? Where is Horn? Where is Allen?" he shouted at Mc intosh." "I think they have gone," said the "cub" meekly. "You think they have? Tou don't see them do you? And they don't usually leave with you a memoranda of their doings, hey?" The "cub" attempted to say some thing, but before he could proceed tho .city editor said: "Here, go to Butler on tho 3 o'clock train. I do not like to trust so Important an assignment to such an ordinary blockhead, but you are the only one In sight Get some expense money down stairs and hurry. You've barely time to catch the train. Take this telegram. It will explain why you are sent. Get your facts and write all you can get on the story. By the time you arrive there, I have made arrangements with the telegraph company to handle your matter as fast as you can write it Get along now, and do your best. The cub fairly flew to the depot Out of breath almost, he found a seat In the car and for the first time look ed at the telegram. It was merely a bulletin from the Butler correspond ent and read: ' John Billing, cashier 8econd National bank, found his wlfo In arms of William Champennis thin afternoon. Billings killed Chnmpenols, then his wife and then him self. Society Is greatly startled. Both the wealthiest and most influential in town. How much? Well, here was a story for. the cub after all. Butler Was forty miles distant, and the train would make it In less than an hour. As tho cars sped .along the , cub's mind was framing sentences. He paced nervous ly up and down the aisleway, occa sionally throwing back the lapel of his coat, showing his reporter's star. Regaining his scat, he would take out a pad of paper from his pocket and scribble. The opening sentence of his story ,?cuid not be framed ex actly right to suit him. He wanted something that would catch and glad den the city editor's eye at first glance. Finally he wrote something. looked at it a long while, smiled and put tho paper in his pocket- At But ler there was little difficulty In obtain ing the facts. The coroner's jury was iu session when he alighted from the train. He heard the testimony of the servants in the Billing's home, who saw the shooting. They also testified that Champenois bad been a frequent visitor at the Billings home, both while Mr. Billings was at home and occasionally when the husband was absent Their testimony was some what sensational and disclosed, a phase of Mrs. Billings' life that was not in keeping with her reputation In the community. Champenois left a widow; Billings had no children. The - cub secured photographs which he mailed on the 8 o'clock train. By 10 o'clock he was in possession of all the Information necessary for a long story. He began to write. At first he was nervous and uncertain of clmsc!f, but after he had written two or three hundred words, the rest be came easy to handle. He wrote rap Idly, and by midnight he bad three columns of matter In the newspaper office. At 1 o'clock the fast train for New Orleans was due and the cub boarded It. He attempted to write on the cars, but he found that difficult; gave that up and tried to talk to the conductor, but 'the conductor was ft ,' ' - "I Think They Have Gone," Said the "Cub," Meekly. busy. In a double seat just in front sat a man calmly smoking a cigar while looking out at the flushing shad ows the train was mfcking in the dark neHS. Hat boxrs and valises were piled up rround him.

He wai a Frenchman and a traveler, so he informed the cub. After the ctib had told the story in all its ghastly detailB, the Frenchman looked Intent ly out of the window for some min utes before making any sort of com ment. Finally, he turned his head and remarked that It was "too bad, too bad." "I remember a story of a wife's Insincerity," he went on after a bit If J jr.. . , It:'. ' . 1 He Was a Frenchman and a Traveler. "A young Frenchman married the most beautiful woman in Paris. He was Immensely rich; so was she. They bad been sweethearts for years and when they were married It was the most fashionable ceremony that had taken place in Paris for a decade. In the suburbs of that city, he built the most expensive home that archi tects could suggest; filled It with the costliest of paintings and surrounded with every luxury. Apparently the woman loved him and worshiped hira with unmeasured devotion. He was always devising little trips, making her presents, doing things he thought would please and delight her. Occa sionally he would take a hand satchel and drive to tho station, saying that he would be gone for the day, only to return within an hour or so, his sudden reappearance being for the purpose of surprising her, the sur prise being one filled with joy. And so they lived for a year with no ser pent In that beautiful paradise of theirs to strike' at them with its fangs and annoy them with its hiss ing. "But one day the husband returned home to find his wife in the embraco of one of his supposed friends. Both were wild with fear when they were discovered. But the husband spoke calmly, almost kindly. They need not fear. He- would not harm either. He even assisted the false friend in put ting on his overcoat, and as the man started to the door, invited him to call again. As he reached the steps the husband called him back. 'The kisses? The pleasure of those beautiful lips ah, should you not leave the madame some memento of your sweet experi ence a five franc piece, say? Yes, that would be the thing.' So the man, now weeping because of his shame, wont to the hysterical woman and placed the coin in her lap. "The husband ate his dinner alone. In the morning he asked the maid to say to his wife that he should be pleased to have her breakfast with him, and tho woman went to the din ingrooin, her eyes red . and swollen from long hours of crying. He even kissed her as she entered, and dur ing the meal made no reference to what had happened the day before. But when she wont to pick up a nap kin, or to uncover a dish there would appear b store her a five franc piece. In the morning she would find a gold coin in her stockings; if she went to pick up a rose, there would fall from Its petals a five franc piece always. Wherever she would turn 'would be the cruel reminder of her unfaithful ness. And so, this went on from week to week, and from month to month, until finally, ah, that grand, beautifgl, royal, clear-eyed woman she go mad." The cub was roundly' congratulated when he ' returned to the office. In the early hours of morning, after the papers had gone to press, he recited the story of the traveler. "And do you know, boys, I believe that fellow who told me the story is the came man that tcjrtured that woman and drove her to an asylum. Doggone If I don'tj" ' . " "Why, sure thing," replied the city editor. "And, say, cub, I think there i,s tho making of a reporter la you, after all. , Your assignment to-day will be to find the Frenchman and make him confess."
