SIMuN ri'RE GOODS
A stout projection rested on one of
the rear wheels. Here stood the pro
prietor of the vehicle, while behind
him in a window were displayed Ids
wares. It was evident that Simon I.
Groot followed the romantic career of
an itinerant hawker, dealing in that
wide range of cpmnioditia roughly
comprised in the quaint term. "Yan
kee notions." Kent was struck with
the expansive splendor of the man's
se-ture. the tliirnlty of his robust
fig-ire and the beauty of a brond
whitening leard that spread sldewlse
ju the ripples from a boat's stem.
Two blemishes unhappily marred the
majestv of Simon I. ;rot's presence
, a talr of ilnhend eyes, mutually at-
trocted to each ther. and a mean and
stringent little voice.
"There, gentlemen and ladles." Si

"And you heard the woman cry out

"That's a curious thing. I'd Lave al

"All thN was nlsht before last.

"Drove over to Marcus Corners to

"Certainly. No such blow ever made

"Probably by a fall from the cliff to

"And the fall broke the manacle

"The broken manacle was never on

"That's merely conjecture." said the
"No; It's certainty. A blow beavy

"Not if you consider the evidence.

tied a heavy bundle. The manacles
were, I infer. In that."
"But what conceivable motive could
the dead woman have In dressing her
self up like a party, going to meet a
man and chaining him to herself?"
"When you have a bizarre crime you
must look for bizarre motives. Just at
present I'm dealing with facts. The
Iron was on the left wrist of the body:
therefore lt was on the right wrist of
the unknown companion. It Is natural
to perform a quick, deft act like snap

Hcnce, presumably, your visitor was
the one who clamped the cuffs."
"And the man broke off bis?"
"Yes. But only after a struggle, un
doubtedly. If I could find a man with
a liadly bruised right wrist I should
consider the trail's end In sight. Y'ou'll
make Inquiries, will you. Mr. Bain?"
"I will; and I will keep an eye on
I.en Schlager and the doc. Anything
more now? If not I'll say good night."
After the lawyer had mnde bis way

"Oh. any one of several hundred un

"Wait! She must have attacked

she? Then she and the man she weut
to nn-et quarreled, and he killed her
by throwing her over the cliff."

say, "but his views differed from Car

true views, Carlyle deemed them false

he talked in his fluent way for two

At the door Carlyle, who had smoked
the whole time in grim silence, took
his pipe from his mouth and said
