An Attempted
Bp Michael J. Porter

'Til hunt him down, If I have to
put bloodhounds on his trail!"
"Now, major!" soothed th« wife.
"Now, papa!" soothed the dau|h
"The scoundrel shall not escape!"
roared the major as he pared th
room. "I'll have the polloe after him
within an hour—within a quarter ol

Marjorie had been uptown te ds
some shopping. The major had been
talking of buying an auto, and ex
pected to close the deal that day. II
the event came off the machine would
be at the depot to meet her as she
came home on the 7 o'clock train.
She had only stepped off when a man
touched her arm and raised his cap
and said:
"This way to the auto, please."
So her father had closed the deal,
and was probably sitting in the auto
outside waiting her appearance! But
he wasn't. The machine was tenant
less, but the man gave her a hand to
reach the tonneau, and as she seated
herself it whirred away. It dldn'1
take the right direction, but she
didn't notice this fact for a minute,
When she did she called out:
"You are going wrong! You must
turn around!"
"I'll get you there, all right," was
the reply.
Then Miss Marjorie opened the
door and leaped straight out, to lose
her balance as her feet touched the
ground and fall and roll over and
over in the mud. At the same time
she screeched. It wasn't a dainty
little scream, but a long-drawn

screech that was heard a quarter of
a mile away and started men running
for the scene.
"Here—what's the matt«r!" de
manded the driver of the auto as
he came to a sudden stop.
"Help! Help!"
Speed was put on aad the auto ills,
"By George, Miss Graves!" ex.
claimed a first oomer, who at least
knew the girl by sight, "but this iif
about the boldest thing I ever beard
of around here!"
"Was—was he trying to carry me
offT" was gasped.
"Sure thing! Yes, ma'am. It was
a bold attempt at abduction, and the
wonder Is that he didn't have a con
federate to choke you Into silence
and helplessness. By George, but
this village Is getting to be worse
than New York city!"
The scoundrel had been noticed at
the depot by men who thought hq
aoted suspiciously. No one had taken
the number of the auto, and it was
considered useless to follow.
The major hadn't closed the deal
for the auto, and he wasn't at the
depot—either with or without It. Ol
oourse, Miss Marjorie had a story ta
tell when she got home, and it wai
the attempted crime that roused th«
father's Ire. Was this the twentieth

village, consisting of two men, being
paid enormous salaries to catch crlm

Meanwhile something had happened

evening for a stay of two weeks with
her old school chum, Mrs. Thurston,
a bride of two years. Harry Thurs

Two men were taking their luaofe
at a popular restaurant in town and a
woman was sitting at a table nearby,
and she tells us this: The men were
talking about the legislative bribery
cases, when one ot them said:

the drawing power of an offer or |60U

know it.
"I had a teriflc struggle over that

again, and I did that over and over
again, all the time while thus tempted.
It was on a Sunday when the fever
was at its height and, passing the Con

Gladden was to preach: so I went in
there to bear him, but principally to

that the doctor preached that night

Recent Case of Baron Von Beohlnle
Reveals Penury in the Puhtlo Serv
ice of Austria.
A Vienna jury has just acquitted
Baron Joseph von Bechinic In spite of
bis confession of embezzlement. The
trial gave a sad insight Into the pen
ury existing In the lower ranks of the
civil service.
The baron, who belongs to an old
but decayed family, entered the postal
service and married when receiving
only 2s. 6d. a day. His pay ultimately
rose to £3 a week, but the greater
|art of It was pledged in paying off
Abe debts he had been forced to Incur
earlier in order to keep his wife and
He confessed in court how one day
when he had nothing to give his four
children to eat, he forged an entry in
a savings bank book, and once having
given way to temptation, repeated this
till he had embezzled £20, always
hoping that relatives would help him
to repay.
The acquittal, for which there were
no grounds but sentiment, is some*
what criticised in the Vienna press,
the newspapers pointing out that it
forms a dangerous precedent, there
being so many impecunious members
of the nobility in the publlo service,
and that this particular baron had
brought his poverty on himself by hlg
improvident marriage.
Remarkable Admission.

a murder case. The willingness of the
witness to say all that he could In be

say you knew him."

"Nobody asked you about that.
What was the condition of his health
—was he not in robust health?"
"No sah! He was the feeblest nig
gah I eber seed."
"He was killed by the accused, was
he' not?"
"I can't say so, sah. My Idee am
dat he waa In sich bad health dat,
eben ef he hadn't geen killed when
he was, he would hab died., anyhow,

Old Clook of 8t. Qlles.
All loyal Scotsmen will learn with
regret that the well-known clock on
St. Giles' tower in Edinburgh, which
must have told the time to Scott and
Burns, is doomed to disappear. Ap.
parently a workman fell through the
case and damaged the mechanism so
badly that the civic authorities do not
consider the wornout works worth re*
pair. So the old clock will be ban
ished by the city museum and re
placed by an Invisible timepiece, with
out hands or face, which will merely
strike the hours and leave the aes
thetic effect of the tower unspoiled.
The ancient clock of St. Giles has seen
two centuries of service, but Is a
mere giddy youth compared with some
of the medieval horologes on English
cathedrals. There are clocks that
date from the fourteenth century at
Bxeter, Wells and Peterborough.

"Old Mason's kii.**
"Good looker."
"Lots of class there.**
"She's good to marry a million.**
Such were some of the obaervatlona
as Miss Myrtle Mason descended from
her auto In front of a particular num
ber on a downtown street.
Every one knew Old Mason, as he
was called. He was a money-lender
and note-shaver. He owned the
building In which he had his office,
any every year he swore off a good
share of his taxes and lost three or
four tenants because he would not
make improvements. Just at this
date one of the two elevators was
"dead." It had needed repairs for
ten years and had Anally stopped in
disgust. The other was about ready
to strike, but was still in use and
bore the sign: "Take This Elevator."
Just a moment previous to the en
tranoe of Mis6 Myrtle the elevator
had been taken by a young man
named Homer Lincoln. He was an
architect just starting out for himself,
and he had business on the third
floor. The elevator was there, all
right, but the elevator boy wasn't.
He had stepped Into the cage and
waited. He heard the rustle of skirts,
caught alght of a big white hat and
waving plumes and was then face to
face with what his architectural in
stincts told him was a good-looking
girl of about twenty. Like the gen
tleman he was, he crowded back and
gave ber room and removed his hat.
Where, oh, where was that boy?
The time one has to wait In aa
elevator seemB three times at* long ae

Miss Myrtle moved about uneasily.
Mr. Lincoln coughed nervously. An
She Looked Up at the Placard.
•levator boy cannot be brought back
to his duties in any such way as
that. More heroic measures are nec
essary. When two minutes had
passed the girl stepped out and
looked up at the placard. Perhaps
she had read It too hastily. Per
haps It advised the public to walk
upstairs or down cellar.
No! That placard distinctly read:
"Take This Elevator!" Not the other
elevator, but this one. The lettera
were black on a white ground, and
even a cross-eyed man couldn't have
confounded them with somebody's
cough syrup or a "Why Pay Rent?"
Five mlnutea and no boy!
Mr. Lincoln would have faced
Jeffries In his best days, but he re
colled from this situation. He had
but to step past the girl with a "beg
pardon," but he hadn't the moral
courage to do it. It was she who
solved the problem. As many as ten
times In her life she had seen
elevator boys manipulate the cable,
and, tired of waiting, she suddenly
seized It and gave a hoist. Mr. Lin
coln opened his mouth to protest, but
he was too late. The weary cage
uttered a sigh and a groan and then
made a leap for the roof. It waa
tired of being classed aa a slow coach.
When the roof was reached the
cage struck and started for the cellar.
'It bumped down there and started up
again, but stopped between floors
and gave a wabble and a lurch and
settled down to rest.
The first bump had thrown the two
occupants to the floor. The second
tossed them about and the stoppage
put the finishing edge to their soars.
Mr. Lincoln used exclamations that
children should not see in print, and
Miss Mason uttered screams that
aroused the building and brought the
elevator boy from the curb market
on the run. In three minutes It was
kaown that the elevator was stuck
between floors. In two more It was
known that it held two passengers
aad that one of them was Old Mason's
daughter. He went off the handle
at onoe.
"Are you there, Myrtle?" he hal
lowed as he trotted around.
"Yes, father," was the dased reply.
"Who is with you?"
"A—a young man."
"My heavens! I see the whole
plot! Say, young man, whoever you
are, you cannot escape! We have
