An nrtlRt who had suddenly become
tltnost fjunons by Ills production of a
painting exhibited tit the Uoyul acad-
ctny was one day called upon by u
mnn whose visit was productive of the
most extraordinary and undrenml of
The picture represented u lonely
stretch of beach , upon which the sea
wus boating in long , creamy rollers. In
the foreground , bending over a dead
body , was a man with a wild expres
sion on his face and with a nuked
knife lu lila hand. A ship's boat , evi
dently Just benched , was also In the
picture , and by the side of the mur
dered man was a bag of gold. The pic
ture portrayed the advent of two cast
aways upon a friendly shore. The one
had murdered the other so that the
treasure might be his.
The painter's visitor was a gray hair
ed , wild eyed man.
"In heaven's name , sir , " he gasped
out , "how did you lonrn the dreadful
fitory that you painted ? I see you know
nil. 1 murdered my mate Hill to get
the money that was his. I threw his
r body Into the sea. I don't know what
Impulse led mo to the Academy. The
first thing I saw was your picture rep
resenting the scene that took place 30
years ngo. "
Needless to say , the picture had been
tlie outcome of Imagination. Yet mur
der will out , and the guilty conscience
of the man who had killed his comrade
for lust of gold hud convinced him that
the painting was no coincidence , but
was Indeed the actual portrayal of a
dastardly and unwitnessed crime.
There Is probably no picture better
known in England than "The Doctor , "
by Mr. Luke Fildes , yet there are prob
ably very few people aware of the fact
that that selfsame masterpiece was
the means of bringing to light the per
petration of a crime that would other
wise never have been known.
A certain doctor In n large town com
mitted suicide , and among hla .papers
was a letter which ran us follows : " 1
have today seen Luke Tildes' 'Doctor. '
Tlie picture represents a medical man
watching by the bedside of n child. It
has so haunted me that I am going to
take away my own worthless life and
make a confession at the same time.
When Arthur's" his brother's "boy
died , I came into money that my dead
brother had settled on him. lie died
ns all the world thought of acute pneu
monia. Yet his life might have been
saved had I acted , ns Fildes' 'Doctor' is
BO evidently doing , with the use of all
the skill that lay In my power. I has
tened tlie boy's end and so got the
money. I can bear It no more. "
A well known artist was commission
ed to paint the portrait of a lady In ex
alted circles , who boasted the posses-
eion of a most unique Jewel In tlie
form of a pendant. Tlie lady was very
anxious that this heirloom should be
Included In her portrait. The artist , of
course , compiled with her request.
Shortly after the painting had been
completed a daring burglary was per
petrated , with .he result that the lady
lost her heirloom , and no trace of the
thief or thieves was forthcoming.
Years passed by , and the lady gave up
nil hope of ever seeing the precious
Now , It so happened that the artist
who had painted the portrait of tlie
lady mentioned had occasion to travel
In the course of his wanderings he
came to Bombay and , as every visitor

Suddenly his attention was riveted
by a piece of Jewelry In a Jeweler's
shop that seemed familiar to him. It
was a diamond and ruby pendant
Where had he seen It before ? He ran

He returned to his hotel and happened -
, pened to take from his portfolio a
eketch of the portrait he had made
years ago of the lady with the pendant.
In a moment the enigma was solved.
The piece of Jewelry lie had seen was
the peculiar pendant that his fair sitter
'had been so anxious he should include
in his portrait.
He hurried off to the chief of police ,
and told that worthy what he suspect
ed , namely , that the bazaar he had vis
ited contained the long lost Jewel of
the English lady. Inquiries were at
once set on foot with extraordinary re
sults. The Jeweler In tlie bazaar con
fessed to having given years ago a
quite Insignificant sum for the Jewel ,
which he had bought from n stableman
In the employ of a neighboring rajah.
The stableman was sought for , and
turned out to be none other than a fa
mous English cracksman , who had ap
parently turned honest , but who ,
nevertheless , confessed to having been
the thief of the Jewel that had been
fa miraculously discovered. Pearson's

band of young men who , though they

Here Is an Australian dog story from

brought from a station Into a small
township and fretted after the sheep.
Ono day not a child was to be seen
about the p'ace , and as evening came
the township became alarmed. Search
was made , and the juveniles were
found huddled up In the corner of a
paddock , where the dog had rounded
them up. He had no sheep to look aft
er , BO he took the children. The narrator
rater of this lie guarantees It as a fact.
