f -m tJLLIE AKERSTROM.'
The closing presentation of "The
Doctor's Warm , Reception" by Ullie
Akerstrom and her excellent company
at. the Jacques will be given this even
ing. The play is brimful of that live
ly fun., in which Miss Akerstrom ex
cels and is Just the kind to make an
audience enjoy the good things of life.
'KELCEY-SHAXXOX. v
Tho. who enjoy refined comedy will
be treated to a most pleasing entertain
ment vvhen Herbert Keicey and Effie
' Shannon present "My Lady Dainty"
to-morrow evening at Poli's. The play,
which, is from the pen of Madeleine
Lucette Ryley, is one of the type which
appeals so strongly to women and
young people. Its humor is pure and
wholesome and its senlfinent has the
true ring of 'genuine tenderness. It
tells an exquisite love story in which
the heroine is a pretty young govern
ess who wins all hearts by her wo
manly graces, beauty and gentleness.
All theater goers are familiar with
Miss Shannon's personality and can
readily appreciate how thoroughly she
fills the picture of "My Lady Itainty."
It gives her great opport unities, both
In its genteel comedy and emotional
episodes. Her art and versatility are
seen at their very best and she pre
sents both these qualities with a foroe
.fulness, earnestness and truth that has
eanbled her to win in this character
the greatest triumph of her career. Mr
Keicey, too, is splendidly cast, and lie
gives a fine exhibition of artistic act
ing. The company is a very strong
one, including among others Verner
Clarges, Isabel Waldron. Winona
Shannon. William Boag. George. Rob
inson and Louise Bryant. Seats went
n sale this morning at "5, 00, 75 cents,
$1 and $1.50.
"WOMAN AGAINST WOMAN'."
Miss Eleanor Barry and a good com
pany will appear in Frank Harvey's
wellVnown sex play, "Woman Against
Woman," Thursday, Friday and Satm1
'day at the Jacques. Miss Barry is a
charming actress and a very pretty
woman. She was at one time William
H. Crane's leading lady, held a like
position with the California Stock com
pany in San Francisco and supported
Mrs.Langtry on her last American
tour. She has a splendid role in "Wo
man Against Woman," and plays it
with fine discrimination and finish.
The company gives her adequate sup
port, making the performance in all re
spects a most enjoyable one.
- , "LOST RIVER."
Joseph Arthur's wonderful melo
drama, "Lost River." which has been
proving such a tremendous sensation
. in New York and Boston, comes to
Poll's for a single performance on Fri
day evening. The play is from the
game marvelous pen that gave us "Blue
Jeans" and "The Still Alarm," and it
. has won instantaneous favor from the
critics of -New York and Boston. "A
thrill a minute, and the minutes came
fast," was the way the New York Her
ald summed up the first performance.
The Tribune, aft;r devoting a column
to a review of the performance, de
scribed the play as a "high-toned mel
odrama." Alan Hale, in the New York
Journal, went to the "Billys Baxter
letters" for a simile, and declared that
' "Lost River" had "Blue Jeans" vir
tually "tied to the mast." Every
critic in New Y'ork city praised the
play as rare entertainment; every
critic In Boston followed suit when
sthe play was given in that center of
culture: every paper in both cities de
clared the Boston company superior to
(the New York organization on an oc
casion when, to decide the mattlr to
the satisfaction of both cities. Liebler
&- Co, the producers of the play, ex
changed the organizations for a single
performance. It is the Boston com
pany that is to be seen here in the play.
Mary Sanders is the head of the cast,
and will be seen in her original role
of Ora Jones. The sale of seats opens
to-morrow.
"THE TILLAGE POSTMASTER."
That splendid rural drama, "The
(Village Postmaster," will be presented
at Poli's Saturday afternoon and even
tog. i "LORD AND LADY ALGY."
" The Empire Theater Stock company
presented the above comedy at Poli's
theater last night before a very slim
audience. The company was minus
. the male star of the bast, William Fav
ershain, who is -very ill in New .York
with appendicitis. George W. Howard,
Sir Faversham's understudy; took the
part of Lord Algernon and did ex
cellent work throughout. The play is
a light .comedy in three acts, written
iy R. C. Carton and has been pro
duced in England and Australia. It is
Ithe same company that presented it
so successfully in New Y'ork, with, of
course, the exception of Mr Faver
eham. Miss Millward has the opposite
part of .Lady Algernon and her enact
ing of the role was brilliant, well con
ceived and admirably portrayed. In
fact every member of the company
gave material assistance in the gen
eral success ancf the whole perform
ance merited all the ecomiums that
could be heaped upon it. It was too
bad "that there was1 such a small au
dience but several things combined to
keep the people at .home. In the first
place Mr Faversham was not with the
cojnpany and then it. was such an un
usually stormy evening that many of
the theater attendants preferred to re-
. main at home. This is the second ex-
eellent production of the week that
lias been given a frost and the man-
: gement feel decidedly blue.

CHAPTER XVI. '
THE ROENTGEN RAYS. '
"I tell you, Sturgis, it is a wonderful .
discovery. . I don't know what applica- '
tions may ultimately be made of it in
Other branches of science." but I am
conrtBced that It is bound to cause a
revolution in surgical diagnosis," Eaid
Dr. Thurston, enthusiastically.
"Yes," replied' JSturg-is, "I have no
cfloubt that Roentgen's rays will be of
great assistance to the surgeon in the
examination of features and" in the lo
cation of foreign bodies which cannot
be reached by the probe."
"As a proof of that, I must show you
a beautiful photograph which I have
just made. After laaving you on New
Year's morning, I found a patient
asleep in my office. He had been wait
ing several hours. It was the usual
case of a pistol in the hands of a-fool
friend', who did not know it was load
ed; and of course with the usual result
a bullet wound in my patient."
. Sturgis was listening in an absent
minded way while his friend spoke.
"The wound was not severe; no
bones broken. The bullet had entered
the palm of the left hand and had
passed up into the forearm."
A sudden light came into the report
er's eyes; but he maintained his list
less attitude.
"Well, sir, probe as I would, I was
unable to locate that bullet. At last I
HIS FINGERS CLOSED NERVOUSLY
ON THE HANDLE.
concluded to try the Roentgen rays,
and here is the result. It is as pretty a
shadow photograph as I have yet
Been."
So saying, Dr. Thurston handed the
reporter a -photograph, which the lat
ter studied carefully in silence.
"Notice how clearly you can see the
peculiar shape into which the bullet
has been flattened," said the physician.
"Y'es," replied Sturgis, "I was observ
ing that. Have you a.&uplicate of this
that you can spare?"
"Yes; keep that one if you wish."
"Thank you; I am very glad' to have
it. Did you succeed in extracting the
buliet?"
"I .have not tried yet. I had to devel
op the photograph first."
"Of course. When do you expect the
red-haired young man to return?"
"He inromised? to come back yester
day, but he failed to do so," replied
Dr. Thurston. Then, suddenly:
"But who said anything about his
being young or red-haired?"
"Not J'ou, certainly, old man," re
plied Sturgis, smiling. "Don't worry;
you have not voluntarily betrayed any
professional secret. But, for all that,
lour patient is wanted by the police.
He was bound to fall into their hands
before long. The only effect of this
discovery will be to Lasten the denoue
ment. I had traced him to your house,
and I knew how he was wounded; so
that I recognized him as soon as you
mentioned his case."
"Who is he ?" asked Thurston. "I am
B'ure I have seen him somewhere before,
but I cannot remember where."
Whereupon the reporter related the
story,, of Chatham's connection with
Ihe Knickerbocker bank ease. -
CHAPTER XVII.
THE QUARRY. ' "
Haif an hour later Sturgis was walk
ing briskly down Broadway, with his
Usual air of absent-minded concentra
tion. Presently he turned into a side
Street and at once slackened his pace,
tie now sauntered along; like a lounger
at a loss how to kill a long, idle day.
the show window of a bric-a-brac shop
arrested his attention. He stopped to
Diamine its contents.
A little f arther up the street was a
liquor saloon, outside of which stood
k group of boisterous young rowdies.'
An older -man, evidently in his cups,
Was seated on an ad-joining stoop.
Where, with maudlin gravity y he seemed
to be communing with himself.
On, the opposite side of the way stood
n. low, qiiapiotitea trieic nouse.- a
painted sig.pver the windows, of the
ground floor bofe the name: "MAN
HAT'I'AN? dIEMlC4.L CO."
The drunken man rose unsteadily to
his- feet and approached Sturgis with
outstretched hand. - -
"Say, Jimmy get on ' ter Ms nibs
Btrikin' de bloke fur a niekel ter git(
tned'eine-fur his sick mudder!" ex
claimed one of the .young ruffians.
The wretched-looking individual thus
ilesignjited seemed hardly able to stand
us he steadied himself against an iron
railing; but the eyes he turned upon
Bturgis were bright with intelligence,
and the words he spoke were uttered in
I low, firm voice;
"IJe been here been here twice." '
"Twice?" echoed Sturgis, surprised.
"Where is he now?"
"I don't know-" ?;.
; "Yon don't know?". -... . : C-
"No, --sir; but I guess Conklin does,
fhia is how it was: It was my watch
yesterday af ternoon, when Chatham
came the first .time. - He went Into the
Manhattan company's place through
the basement at,a quarter after five.;
Bo I Just settled' 'myself out herejand
waited. Well; IwiteJ andwaileaV but
there wasn't any sign ofChatham, and
when Flagler came along to relieve me
ti ten o'clock Chatham hadn't come,
ut yet. Flagler he spotted the place
until six tnis morning,. and then. Conk,
lint 1 his. turn . again . unti two
o'cjock,when I .tame oil for my watch.
Just as Conklin was telling me how
things stood, who should come down
-the street but Chatham himself, large
as life." -: .' .;'. " -
"Down the street?" exclaimed Stur-
. - .
glS. , .- .
Yes, sir. Arid up he goes, as if noth
ing had happened, and into the Man
hattan Chemical company's place
again." .
"He had put .up the back-door game
on you," said the reporter.
"Yes, sir-; just what I said to Conk
lin. So, quick as a wink, I sent him
around the block to keep his eye
peeled on the next street, and I waited
here. And here I've been ever since.
If Conklin isn't on the block above, it
must be because Chatham has made
tracks again, ind he after him."
"I'll go and find out," said Sturgis.
"Has anycnc else called at the Man
hattan Chemical company's office sifice
you have been on watch?" -
"No, sir; but a couple of hours ago
an express wagon came along and de
livered a,16ng wooden box; might' have
"been chemicals for the wholesale de-'
partment, for it was lowered to the cel
lar by the hoist in the areaway. The
blond young man receipted' for the
box."
"Very well, Shrady. nang on a little
while longer, and. I shall have you re
lieved just as soon' as I possibly can."
So saying, the reporter, who had
been pietfnding to look through his
pockets for a coin, ostentatiously
slipped a nickel into the outstretched
palm before him. ' The lighi seemed to
die out of the sharp eyes of the detect
ive, and it was the miserable drunkard1
who staggered back to his place on the
stoop next to the station, unmindful of
the gibes of the young rowdies congre
gated there.
Sturgis walked lip to the next street,
where he found a second detective on
duty. '
. "Anything new, Conklin?" he asked.
"No, sir; he's been lying low; looks
like he knew he was spotted this
time."
"Good. Stay here until I can notify
the police that we have run down the
quarry. It will be necessary to obtain
a search warrant for the Manhattan
Chemical company's place. In the
meantime, if Chatham should attempt
to make tracks, hang on to him like
his shadow and send back word here as
soon as you can." ,
"All right, sir."
Sturgis, after leaving Conklin,
walked along the street which the de
tective was watching and carefully in
spected every house on the block. Al
most all were huge office buildings; but
here and there an old-fashioned brown
stone front stood out conspicuously
against the broad expanse of brick
walls and iron columns. Half-way
down the street one of these old houses
stood well back from the street line
behind a small garden. The reporter
stood near this and read the numbers
on the adjoining buildings.
"This is directly back of the Man
hattan Chemical company's office," he
mused. "I wonder who lives here. It
looks like a respectable place enough.
One could obtain a good view of the
rear of the Manhattan Chemical com
pany's ofiBce from the back windows.
H'm "
He stood thoughtfully considering
what pretext he could use to gain ad
mission to the house, when suddenly
he' became aware of the presence of
a man who had approached with
noiseless steps.
"Ah, is that you, Mr. Sturgis?" said
the calm, sardonical voice of Dr. Mur
dock. The reporter startsd inwardly, but
gave no outward sign of surprise.
"Were you about to do me the honor
of calling?" continued the chmeist.
"Yes," said Sturgis, deliberately;
"I was about to seek an interview
with you. Can you spare a few min
utes?"' "Who is it that asks for the inter
view?" inquired Murdock, with quiet
sarcasm. "Is it Mr. Sturgis, gentle
man; Mr. Sturgis, reporter, or "
Sturgis met a cold gleam from Mur
dock's inscrutable eyes.
"Or Mr. Sturgis, the famous de
tective?" continued the chemist with
an imperceptible sneer.
"I represent the Tempest," replied
the reporter, quietly. '
' Murdock glanced carelessly up and
down the street. There was no one
in sight.
"Oh! very well," he said, taking out
his latchkey and leading the way to
the house; "come into my study and
let me hear what I .can do for the
Tempest."
On entering the house Murdock mo
tioned Sturgis to the door leading
from the hall into the drawing-room.
"If you will step into the parlor for
a few minutes, I shall be -with you di
rectly," said he..
- Sturgis nodded acquiescence, and
while Murdock walked toward his
study, which was at the extreme rear
of the hall, the reporter opened the
draVfing-room door. He did not open
it very wide, however, neither did he
enter; for although the room was
rather dark, his quick eye caught a
passing' glimpse of a feminine head
cozily nestled upon a distinctly mas
culinje :shoulder, the owner of which
hadhis back , turned to him. ' Bach
elor cynic though he was, Sturgis had
notTthe heart to interrupt so inter
esting a situation; and, as the couple
Hrere so f absorbed that they had not
noticed the intrusion upon their tete-a-tete,
he discreetly , retreated and
softly "closed the door. ' ' ' , '
By this time Murdock had passed
into his study, so that Sturgis found
himself alone in the hall. ' He was
glad of a short respite during which
he might cdllect his thoughts; for,
having been taken by surprise, be had
not had time to select a plausible
topic for the interview which he had
solicited, from MurdoiJk. .Not Know
