TWO MASQUERADING COPS -BY RYLAND BELL.
Copyrighted, 1S13, by As--.V.tecl Literary Kurou.
wnen I was ft roundsman at Arllng- f
tonr I was sitting down to breakfast
one morning when there came a hurry I
call for me to report at once nt the
station. I found two or three othet
roundsmen .there.. listening attentively
to Inspector Harker, who was giving
"Hello. Blaney!"-he said as soon as
he saw me. "I want you. . Come here
and listen to a statement of a case we
have on hand." -
I joined the row In front of the
desk, and the inspector continued:
"This morning an old man named
Hennessy, who keeps a little store at
92 Union street, went to his place of
business at C o'clock as nsual to open
up. lie Kept no cierii. aomg every
thing himself. About half :in hour
after be entered the store a policeman
in onlform was seen ta come out of
it. The person who saw the cop was
on his way to Hennessy's store to buy j
some coffee for breakfast He found
the storekeeper lying dead, shot
through the" head, bofore a little open
safe In which be kept his funds.
"The man who made the discovery
ran out for a policeman and met

of the occurrence. What money had

His how much was there.
"The queries are: Who was the police-
man who came out of the store after
'.he murder? Was he one of our force?
If so. was he tho murderer? Had he
ado'pted a policeman's uniform to en
able him to escape detection? Is he
or has he been a policeman in another.
town who has gone to tho tad?
"We have no time to lose, because
there is a hone that we can pet him
lX'foro lie can take off his uniform and
prtt on citizen's clothes. I think that if
I were in his place I would try to get
out of town ns a policeman. He would
run some ftsk in taking off his uniform
before doing so, since should we find
it we could workfrom it to its owner,
or rather to the man who had worn it,
whereas If the murderer could get he:
yond our bailiwick it would be much
easier to get It off and conceal It."
That was Just like Harker. He al
ways began a hunt for a criminal by
'going over the ground Just as if he was
the criminal himself. But Harker used
to" say that what was most HUely to
throw him oU the trnck was some fool
ish move on the part of the fugitive.
"I shall work on two theories." be
continued "the one that he remains
for the present In town, the other that
he tries to get away in uniform. You
men will be used to work on the latter
theory. You have one advantage you
can hurry, while the murderer can't.
Haste would give htm away. I shall
give each of you so many degrees of
the circumference of our town limits
and trust to your perceptive faculties
to spot the man."
He gave ns our positions, and each
man made his way to where he was
to go by the quickest possible men as.
some going by trolley, some on horse
back, and some In hacks hired for the
purpose. I was assigned to a section
where our own city limits met those of
the neighboring town of Burtonvllle,
the two towns being built up contin
uously. I took a trolley car and got
out at the end of the route, and a few
steps took me into Burtonvllle.
The uniforms of. the po"ce of the
two town,s were alike or so nearly
alike that there was not enough differ
ence to act upon. This was both an
advantage and a disadvantage to ns.
We need not be recognlred as Arling
ton policemen, but the man we were
after cobld not be detected wearing
our uniform. Indeed, we did not know
whst special uniform he wore, except
thst It was n policeman's.
I was but one of some twenty men
who were covering the around, and
there was but one chance in twenty,
if the criminal was captured at all,
that I would run across blm. Conse
quently there was nil;hty little chance
of my doing the job. But I kept my
attention fixed upon 1 Just as keen as

I continued my way back toward, the
trolley stables and was waikinjr slowlv
along whea 1 saw a policeman coming.
Some of us fellows of the police
have a way when walking along, espe
cially when entering upon our term of
routine duty, of throwing our sticks
outward, drawing them back by tho
throng that attaches them to the wrist
and catching them. The man coming
toward me was doing this. That fel

It as if he had been doing the trick

When we met I nodded to him. look
ing him over carefully, as I did every
cop-1 passed, for anything that might
give away the man I was after. There
was nothing ifl his uniform, notbins
iu his walk, which had the elasticity of
a man just going on duty.- contrasting
with that of one just going off duty.
But there is one telltale feature thnt
cannot well he covered, though I have
known many persons to do so with
marked success. I refer to the eye. It
Is usually a sure indicator. It Is the
feature on which one fighting for his
life keeps his own eye flxed without
a moment's removal. The man I met
looked me in the eye. I looked him in
the eye and saw in It an uneasiness
that was In strong contrast with his
careless walk and otherwise confident
While there1 was not enough in this
to warrant my assuming that he had
an uneasy conscience, it was sufficient
to Induce investigation. I stopped foi
a bit of chat.
"Just going on?" I asked.
"Yes," he replied. "Are you?"
Here was n probable giveaway. 1
knew by sight every person connected
with the police department of Arling
ton, and this man should have known
those of Burtonvllle.
"Let me see." I said. "I don't ex
actly place you. . Haven't you recently
come on the force?"
He saw danger in the question, and
I saw dread in that telltale eye of his.
"Not so very recently. I've been
mostly on night duty."
"That's the duty I've heen on." 1
said, in order to push him further.
."It's singular thnt I haven't ever seen
you at the station."
"It is queer we haven't met." he half
stammered. "But I must go on. I'm
a bit behind time -vnrt have some dis
tance to walk."
"I'll' go. with you," I snid. "I'm nn

No will power could keep the blood
in the hum's face when he saw that
he was in imminent danger of being
exposed as masquerading in the Bur
touviile police force, to which he did
not belong, for this would almost aure
ly connect him with something worse.
But he pulled himself together, saying
that I was welcome to investigate hi in
ns much as I liked.
He walked beside mo sullenly. I did
not Jump at n conclusion that he was
my quarry, but I believed there was a
fair chance of it. At the same time I
didn't caro to place myself in a ridicu
lous positlou by making a mistake.
"How do I know," be said presently,
"thnt you ace a member of the force?
I've never seen yon before.".
"Yon'l! find that out" I replied,
"when we meet a policeman."
Suddenly the man sterped to the
curb and began to rap on It with his
stick. A cop came hurrying toward
us, and my companion said to blm:
"I'm an Arlington policeman, after a
man who Is wanted for masquerading
.as a member of your force. There ha
Is. Help me to run him in."
It was a desperate game to play, but
