THt new woman.
... i . . ' L s j BY A. CHAPTER V. Our Advertisement Brings a Visitor. Our morning's exertions had been too much far my weak health, and I was tire J out in the afternoon. After Holmes' departure (or the con cert. I lay down upon the sofa and en deavored to get a couple of hours' !een. It was a useless attempt. My mind had been so much exclrp'l by all that had occurred and the tfransest fancies and surmises crowd ed into it. Every time that I closed my eyes I -rv.- he'ore me the distorted, baboon like countenance of the murdered mat. So sinister was the impression which that fa -e produced upon me that I found it difficult to fee! anything but frratitti 'e for him who had removed its owner from the world. If ever human feature? hsnoke vice of the rtost ma'isrr.ar.t tyr-e they were certainly thoss of Enoch J. Drebber. of Cleveland. Still. I recognized that justice must be done, and that th depravity of the victim v."is no condonecient in the eyes of the law. The more I thousht of It the more ert-aor;'.:r.ary did try companion's hy pothesis, that the man had been poi soned, appear. I remembered ho- he had sniffed Ks lips and had no doubt that he had de tected something which had given rise to the iiiea. Then, attain, if not poison, what had caused the man's death, since there was ri;her wound nor marks of stransulatinn? But. o. the o'her hand, whose blood vas thnt which lay so thickly upon the floor? Thre were no si?ns of a strur ple. nor had the victim any weapon ith which he might -nave wounded an antagonist. As loir as all these ntiestions were unsolved I felt that sleer v.-ou!d be no easy matter, either for Holmes or mv elf. His quiet. s!f-eonfidnt manner con vinced me that he had alredv formd a theory which explained all the facts though what it was I could not for an rnstant conjecture. He was very late !n returning so late that I knew that the coneert could not have detained him all the time, ldnner was on the table betore he ap peared. "It was magnificent." he said, as h took his seat. "Do you remember what Darwin says about music? He claims that the power of producing: and appre ciating it existed anions the human race Ion? before the powe of speech was arrived at. Perhans that is why -e are so subtly influenced by it. There are vague memories in" our souls of those mi3ty centuries when the world was in its childhood"." "That's rather a broad idea." I re marked. "One's Ideas must be as b-aod as Mature if thev are to internret Na ture. he answered. "V.'hat's th matter? You're not lnokir.s finite yourself. This Brixton o?d affair has unset vnu." "To tell the truth, ft has." I said. "I oueht tn be more caso-har'lned at'ar my Afshan expTiencos. I saw my own comrades hacked to pi-es at Maiwand without losine my nerve." "I can understand. The-e fs a rr.vs tery about this which stimulates the imasinn'ion; where there is no imagi nation there is no ho-ror. Have you seen the evening panex?" So" "It gives a fairly enod account o?h effair. It does not mention the fact that when the man was raised up a woman's wedding rinsr fell upon the Boor. It is just as well it does no'." "Why?" "Look at this advertisement." he answered. "I had one sent to evry paper this morning immediately after the affair." He threw the paper across to me. and I glanced at. .the place indicated. It was the first advertisement in the "Found" column. "In B-ixton road." it ran. "a plain gold weddin? rins found in the road way between the White Kart Tavrn and Holland Grove. Anply Dr. Wat son. ;C!B Baker street, between 8 and 9 this evening." "Excuse my using your name." he said. "If I used my own some of these dunderheads would recognize it, and want to meddle in the affair." "That is all rieht." I answered. "But supposing any one applies, I have no rinsr." "Oh, yes, you have." said he. hand ing me one. "This will do very well. It. is almost a fac-simlle." "And who do you expect will answer this advertisement?" "Why. the man in the brown coat our florid friend with the sauare toes. If he does not come himself he will send an accomplice." "Would he not consider It as too dan?erous?" "Not at all. If my view of the ease Is correct, and I have every reason to believe that it is, this man would rath er risk anything than lose the ring. According to my notion he dropped it while stoonfng over Drebber's body, and did not miss It at the time. After leaving- the bous he discovered his loss and hurried back, but found the police already in possession, owing to his own folly In leaving the candle burning. He had to pretend to be drunk in order to allay the suspicions which might have been aroused by his appearance at the gate. Now put your self in that man's place. On thinking the matter over, It must have occurred to him that It was possible that he bad lost the ring in the road after leaving the house. What would be do then? He would eagerly look out for the evening papers, tn the hope of see ing it among the articles found. His eve. of course, would light upon this. He would be overjoyed. Why should be lear a trap? There would be no reason, In bis eyes, way the finding of the ring should be connected with the mnrder. He would come. He will come. Ton shall see him within an tour." "And then?" I asked. X)h, you can leave me to deal with 5 DOYLE. him then. Have you cr.y arms?" "I have my old service revolver anJ a few cartridges." "You had better clean It and load It. i He will be a desperate man. and thoujth , I shall take him unawares it is as well jto be ready for anything." ! I went to my bedroom and followed i his advice. When I returned with the pistol the table had been cleared, and Holmes was engaged in his favorite occupation of scraping upon his vio , lin. "The plot thickens." he said, as I en tered. "I have just had an answer to i n;y American telesram. My view of the case is the correct one." "And that is?" I asked, eagerly. "My fiddle would be the better for new strings." he remarked. "Put your pistol in your, pocket. When the fel 1 low comes, speak to him In an ordinary ! way. Leave the rest to me. Don't , f-ishten him by looking at him too hard." "It is 8 o'clock now," I said, glancing at try watch. "Ye: he will probr.My he here in a ' minutes. Open the den- slich'y. That will do. Now put 'he key on the inside.

"Does Peter Wasnn I've here?" asked a clear but rather harsh voice, t We ccild rot h?.r th? servant's re : nly. but the door closed, rnd some oue : beean to a seen . the steps, j The footfall was an tmco-t?in and : shuffling one. A look of surprise passed I over the faee of my companion as he ! listened to it. i It came slowly along the nassaee. and there was a feeble tap at the door. "Come in!" I cried. At my summons, instead of the man of violence whom we expected, a very old and wrinkled woman hobbled into the apartment. She anneared to be dazzled bv the ! sudden blaz of litht. and after-dron- pinsr a courtesy, she stood blinkine at "s with her blea-ed e-es and furcbl'ng I in her pocket with nervous, shaky fin i gers. I I glainced at rev comparison, and h's face had assumed such a disconsolate exnres'jnn that it w?s all I could do to 'teen my countenance. ', The old crone drew out an evening naner. and pointed at our advertise ment. "It-'s this as has brought me. good gentlemen." she said, dropping another courtesy; "a gold welding ring in the Brixton road. It belongs to my girl. Sally, as was married only this time twelvemonth, which her husband is steward aboard a Union boat, and what he'd say if he come "ome and found her without her ring is more than I can think he being short enoueh at the best o' times, but more especially when he hag the drink. If it please. you. she went to the circus last night along with " "Is that her ring?" I asked. "The Lord be thanked:" cried the old woman. "Sally will be a glad woman this night. That's the ring." "And what may your address be?" I inquired, taking up a pencil. "13 Duncan street, Houndsditch. A weary way fom here." "The Brixton road does not lie be tween iny circus and Houndsditch," said SLjrlock Holmes, sharply. The old woman faced around and looked keenly at him from her little red-rimmed eyes. . "The gentleman asked me for my ad dress." she said. "Sally lives in lodg ings at 3 Mayfleld place, Peckham." "And your name is " "My name Is Sawyer hers Is Den nis, which Tom Dennis married her and a smart, clean lad, too. as long as he's at sea. and no steward in the company more thought of; but when on shore, what with the women lod what with liquor shops " "Here is your ring. Mrs. Sawyer." I interrupted in obedience to a sign from my companion; "It clearly belongs to your daughter, and I am glad to be able to restore it to the rightful , owner. With many mumbled blessings and protestations of gratitude, the old crone packed it away in her pocket, and shuffled off down the stairs. Sherlock Holmes sprang to his feet the moment she was gone and rushed into his room. He returned in a few seconds en veloped in an ulster and a cravat. ' "I'll follow her," he said, hurriedly: "she must be an accomplice, and will lead me to him. Wait up for .me." The hall door had hardly slammed behind our visitor before Holmes had descended the stair. Looking through the window, I could see her walking feebly along the other side, while her pursuer dogged her some little distance behind. "Either his whole theory is incor rect," I thought to myself, "or else he will be led now to the heart of the mystery." There was no need for him to ask me to wait up for him. for I felt that sieep was impossible until I heard the result of his adventure. It was close upon nine when he set out. I had no idea how long be might be, but I sat stolidly puffing at my pipe and skipping over the pages of Henri Murger's "Vie de Boheme." Tn o'clock passed, and I heard the footsteps of the maids as they pat- tere off to led. Eievon snj the rro-e stately tread of the landlady pa's r-y door, boua-i for the sa,e dest-ca-tion. it was close upon twelve r-fnr I heard the s?:arn sound of his i.key.

That creature had gone a little way when she began to limp and showed every sign of being footsore. Presently she came to a halt and hailed a four-wheeler which was passing. I managed to be so close to her as to hear the address, but I need not have been so anxious, for she sung it out loud enough to be heard at the other side of the street. 'Drive to 13 Duncan street, Houndsditch. she cried. This begins to look genuine. I thought, and having seen her safely inside. I perched myself behind. That's an art which every detective should be an expert at. Well, away we rattled, and never drew rein until we reached the street In question. I hopped off before we came to the door, and strolled down the street In an easy, lounging way. I saw the cab pull up. The driver jun-ned down, and I saw him open te door and stand expect ar'ly.

(To be continued.) OBEYED ORDERS AND WON Inc dent ol the Civil War That Showi the Value of Unquestioning Discipline As an illustration of the idea of obe dience and discipline inculcated in the We-t Point cadets. James Barnes tells a tory full of significance, says the Chicago Clitonicie. Puring the war in the 'ixties a young officer once reported to a volunteer brigadier that he had or ders from divi-ion headquarter to take a batterv that heid the top of a sweep ing slope on the front of the Confeder ate line, the shells from which were playing havoc with the Cnion infantry th.it weie deploying through a wooded ravine. "What!" exclaimed the volunteer brigadier, "are yon going to try to take those guns with cavalry? Impossible! Yon can't do it." "Oh, yes, I can. sir," was the reply; "I've got the orders in my pocket." This West Pointer did not doubt in the least what he was going to do, nor his capcairy, and, strange to sjy, he did it, for, advancing at a charge sud denly from the wood arcoes the open ground he took the battery in the flank before they could change effectually the position of the guns, and he brought them back with him. LAND OF MANY WONDERS Galapagos Islands Contain Seemingly No End of Minerals. Captain P.ichard 'ye, who was one of those on tht- steamer W. S. Phelps, tells of many wonders of the Galapagos islands, which that vessel visited. In an interview at San Francisco he said: "The islands are as full of minerals as a shad is of bones. On Albemarle there is an extinct crater, miles in di ameter, .in which there is in sight 40, 000 tons of pure sulphnr. The crater is about ten miles inland and a tramway will be necessary for transportation to the coast, bnt this should be a small matter considering the possible proBt. "One of the queer things in Albe marle is that it is overrun with wild dog. The animals are a mongrel -breed and were left on the island by whalers. The dogs have become wild and ex tremely vicious. They a-e wolflike in their habits and run in droves." Captain Sye also tells of a remarka ble lake on the island of Chatham at an elevation of 3.000 feet above the level of the sea. This lake, according to the captain, rises and fails with the tide, and no sounding line has ever reached its bottom. Many relics of aa ancient race were found. Conductor Scared.

A t H Hfl'fl 111 HI I I 1 NE hundred and twenty-five years ago. the American Con pres. tn sesxi.ui at Philadel phia resolved "that the ihig of tiie I'uited States be thirteen stapes alter nate red and white; the Uuion to be tlilrteen Stars, white, on a blue field, representing a new constellation, the stars to be arranged in a circle." There are many traditions afloat con cerning the origin of this design, but one in which there is undoubtedly the most truth is that which credits the idea of the desigu to Washington. The general found in the coat-of-urms of his own family a hint from which he drew the design for the flag. The coat-of-ariiis of the Washington family was two red bars on a white ground, and three gilt stars above the top bar. The American flag, once decided upon, was rushed through in a hurry, for the army was badly in need of a standard. Betsy Ross, of Philadelphia, enthu- ; siastically undertook the work, and in j a few days a beautiful star-spangled , banner was ready to be. unfurled. She had made one alteration in the des'gn submitted by Washington. The Gen eral had made his star six pointed, as they were on his coat-of arms; Betsy Flag of the Colinics. I'mta-easor of the Stars ami Stripes. The Uaf.iisuake Flag. ltoss made her stars with five points aud live points have been used ever since. For several years Mrs. Ross made the flags for the Government. The first using of the stars, and stripes iu military service, it is claimed, was at Fort Stauwix. renamed Fort Schuyler, now Rome, New York, 1777. August 2 of that year the fort was be sieged by the British and Indians; the garrison was without a flag, but one was made iu the fort. The red stripes were of a petticoat furnished by a woman, the white for stripes and stars was supplied by an officer, who gave his shirt for the purposi;. and the blue was a pie'e of Colonel Peter Gause voort's military cloak. Three women worked ou the flag, and it was ruist.-d to victor;- on the lil'd of August, when the redmen anil the British were Uer'eated at the fort. The next record of the using of the Stars and Stripes is on the first anni versary of American independence, Charleston. S. C. and other places, July 4. 1777. The banner was used at the battle of the Rrandywitie Septem ber 11. 1777; at Germantown, October 4, of the same year, and It also float ed over the surrender of Burgoyne. This flag cheered the revolutionists at Valley Forge the next winter; it waved at Yorktown and shared in the rejoic ings at the close of the war. Some of the first flags were made un der difficulties and at great cost, the greatest ingenuity being required on occasions to secure the necessary mate rials for the banners. As long as the States remained thir teen in number the original design of the circle of stars was all right, hut when, in 1701, Vermont and in 1702, Tbt First Flag Hide hv B-tsr Ros AtJptd by ConKr-ss June 141777. The Fiag as Altered In 17U5. when Kentucky aud Vermont were Admitted Kentucky were taken into the Union, it was decided to arrange the stars in the form of oue huge constellation. In 1703 It was decided to add a stripe as well as a star for each State which came into the I'nion. consequently in that year Vermont and Kentucky were marked on the flag, one by a white and the other by a red stripe; but some wise prophet looking ahead some twenty or more years, saw this plan of adding a stripe as well as a star for each State added to the Union would mean a constant changing of the flag, which would, in a few years, become so large and ungainly that Its beauty would be lost. A committee In 1812 was elected by Congress to decide upon a permanent design for the flag, and the result was that the original thir teen stripes were again used, the stars arranged on the blue field In the form of a square, with one constellation for each new State. In 1818 this plan was formally adopted by Congress, and the j 1 ! ,, , iN Sii!iiSiiiiiiiitS39 . ;'. ' - TW. rnu "f tb Tb FUj M I I To-aay.

Although the United States Is one of the youngest nations of the world, its ( flag is one of the oldest among the pow- ; ers. The country's standard, with It thirteen stars and stripes, which was ; first unfurled June 14. 1777, has re- ma:ued practically unchanged through tiie progress and growth of the. coun try of which it saw the birth.

King James VI. of Scotland, as cended the throne of England, reign ing as King James I., nud in honor of the uuion of the Scottish and English Crowns he placed the white Cross of St. Andrew on the national fliig. chang ing the field from white to blue. This union of the two crosses was called the 'King's colors," or "Union" colors, and the first permanent settlement in what Is now the United States were made under its protection, and the "King's colors" were generally un furled by each new licdy of explorers who came from the Mother Country of the New World, until. In 17o7 the Americans adopted the red flag, but added to it a device of their own. in place of the crosses. The device of a rattlesnake was pop- t ular among the colonists, and its origin as an American emblem is a curious ' feature in the national history. It has been suited that Its use grew out of a. humorous suggestion made by a wri ter In Frankiin's paper the Pennsyl vania Gazette that. In return for the ivrougs which the British authorities of the time were forcing upon the Amer ican colonists, a cargo of rattlesnakes should be sent to the Mother Country and "distributed In St. James Park and other places of pleasure." Colonel Gadsden, one of the Marine Committee, presented to Congress on :he 8th of February, 177ii.

Another use for the rattlesnake was upon a ground of thirteen horizontal bars, alternate red and white, the snake extending diagonally across the stripes, and the lower white stripes bearing the motto: "Don't Tread on Me." The snake was always repre sented as having thirteen rattles. One' of the favorite flags also was of white ' with a pine tree in the centre. Thei words at the top were: "An Appeal to God." and underneath the snake were' the words: "Iion't Tread on Me." ; Several of the companies of minute men adopted a similar flag, giving the name of their company, with the mot to. "Liberty or Death." Massachuetts clung to the pine tree' as her symbol for some time. Trum bull, in his celebrated picture of the' "Battle of Bunker Hlli." which now hangs in the rotunda of the Capitol nt Washington, represents the red flag ' Winn mm green pine tree.

Ctntcr of Apple Production Shifts Wcstviri from Alleghaniu, The center of Uncle Sam's apple bin has been shifted west of the Alleghtn ies, and the etate that leads in tna growing of the national fruit is Mis souri. This is the burden of a paper read by Professor W. A. Taylor, pomol ogist in chr.rge of field investigation in the United States department of agriculture before the national conten tion of apple shippers at Rocheiter, N. V. Professor Taylor completed bil paper some time ago, but just before the time of reading it he received from the census department advance iheett of statistics bearing on the apple in dustry of the United States, compiled from statistics gathered for the Twelfth census, the matter being brought down lo Jun-. moo. According to these figures the tctil number of bearing trees in the United States is 210,000,000, an increase of 75,000,000, or more than 40 pef cent over the apple area of 18S10. The com mercial area of 1900 yielded in 1890 somewhat more than 175,000,000 bushels of apples. By districts, the north Atlantic apple section has 39,500,000 trees; U south Atlantic 25,500,000; the north central, 92,000,000 the south central, 31,000,000, and the Western district, including the Rocky mountain itatei and the Pacific slope, 13,000,000. Out of the total number of trees a the country, the north and south cen tral districts possess 23,205,000, nearly three-fifths. These are divided among the leading states as follows: Missouri, 20,000,000; New York, 15,' 000,000; Illinois, 13,500,000; Kan and Pennsylvania, s little less thu 12,000,000 each. An Imprtiiion.
