They were very different at first, and It was Gerry who.hkd to begin for them, but in the end Moyra got the full'story. Vera had spent the night before with lJel da, and they had both bren very anxious to see all they could of the ball from which they been debarred. For a Ions: time they had watched the light* through the trees from the. drawing-room window, but it had been very umu-tisfactory. anil in the end Delda. the more daring, had persuaded Vera to go into the garden and watch nit closer quarters. ... Mo.vra caught her. breath as she listened. She .guessed that they must have followed Miss Prior round the house, although each had been iguorant of the other's proximity. "It was just about supper-titne we went across." Delda went on breathlessly, "fou there was nobody daucing nor any music sounding, and the hall was quite deserted. We walked right in—didn't we. Vera?—and nobody saw us, so it. isn't wonder thieves did the same. It was while we were in the hall we heard some body crossing the upstairs corridor, so We ran away into the portico, but it was'no one. only just Bertram, who went off to the supper-room, I think." "Xo,' he didn't, Delda. because "Oh, yes, of course!' I remember now. because we went round to the side of the house and peeped through the conserva tory glass to see what was going on there. They'd started dancing again, and we could hear the music beautifully. Oh. it was tantalising! And wasn't it then. Vera, that-5 Slit? looked at her fel low-culprit, who took up.the tale instant ly. "Yes, I was staring in right against the glass in the door that leads into the garden, and .all of a sudden somebody's eyes looked right into mine from the other side. Oh, 1 was frightened "She shrieked and jumped back, and I saw that it was Bertram who was look ing out. Of course we thought he had seen us, and we just flew. But just as we got inside the shrubbery Vera must needs get stitch, so we had to stop until she was all right, and while we were waiting" —dropping her voice mysteriously—"we saw somebody come out of the darkness just by the orchid-house and cut away across the side lawn to the avenue, and then about three minutes later we saw— we really did. Mo.vra—we «iv Angus." "Nonsense I" Moyra sa'il, h-T lips grow ing stiff and cold. But the girls protested in the tenth of their statement. "He came out of the shrrbber.v. as if he had been hiding there, nnd walked after the man who had gone to the ave nue. We saw him distinctly. He was in evening dress and had that fur-lined coat on. We both knew him at once." Moyra sat silent. This terrible cor roboration of Miss Prior's assertion near ly overwhelmed her. Of or.ly one tlnng' she was conscious. She must let no one ?lse suspect what she already knew. She counselled the girls to be silent, and to say nothing more unless they were abso lutely obliged, and she read them an un usually severe lecture on their naughti ness. "You see. if you had done what you were told, and gone to bed. you would not have got mixed up in wliat did not concern yoii. 1 hope it will be a lesson to you both"—a reproof which Delda took in good part. But Moyra's little efforts to stem the tide of vague suspicion that seemed tend ing in one direction were unavailing. Kven as she sat with the girls the sound of voices announced the Hector's return, and a few minutes later Hammond appeared with a message that Miss ISeresford was wanted in the study. Moyra obeyed the summons .with a lit tle shudder there was a fatality con nected with that room. Once before had she gone there to learn the shadow that had fallen on her path. Was she again to hear of deceived love, of faith and honour betrayed? "But it is not true, no matter how strong appearances are against: him. I cannot but believe he is honorable and honest." she .told herself with the bitter ness of despair. In the study she found the two Fen Ions. Terry, a keen-eyed, alert-looking Inan, whom she guessed to he a detective, and her father. They all looked very grave. but Terry and Billy looked also Indignant. Moyra fancied. It was her father who spoke first. "Moyra. we have sent for you to settle a point of dispute.- Do you know whose writing this is? Have you ever seen it before?" lie laid an envelope before her. The •rising color_ in her cheeks showed' that Moyra at once recognized the handwrit ing. "I believe it is Mr. Robertson's writ ing," she answered very quietly. "And this?" The Hector laid a folded sheet of paper before her. Moyra looked at it, and thon raised her eyes to her father's. "I should say it was the same." Terry uttered an impatient exclama tion, and Billy leaned forward eagerly. "That letter might easily have been lying about for weeks or blown out of a window or something like that," he be gan. The detective turned on him quickly. "The post-mark on it shows that it ar rived in London on Monday, sir," he said decisively. "Xo—there can be no doubt that Mr. Angus Robertson was lurking about the house last night, and it is greatly to lie feared that he is impli cated in the jewel robbery. The proved facts are as follows. He was seen on the ten o'clock boat coming from Caterham by several people, who also a"«ge that he seemed anxious to avoid o.?^rvation. He was recognized by two or more per sons as he walked from tfie ferry in this direction, and a Miss Prior"—referring to his notes—"has given information that she saw him crowing the lawn between the two houses shortly before eleven. Evi dence of his presence is proved by this letter addressed to him, and apparently 1 v,"' ',v- WMS 1 *#&• Jb written by his father, which has been found in the shrubberies." "But supposing he was here," Billy said argumentativelv. "it doesn't prove tliat he came to nab my father's jewels. At that rate yon could say I was implicated because, while I was upstairs, apparently changing my collar. I might, presumably have been forcing the pater's stronghold." The whole thing is absurd." "The strongest evidence lies in: this letter." the detective continued, as if Billy had not-spoken. "It runs as follows: 'My dear soil —What a slow coach you are! Ilad I been on the spot the: whole business, would have been over and done with months ago. Why don't you force the game, and hurry events up? I hate delays: they are always fatal. Slow and sure was a muff I believe in audac ity—in electrifying go. But do, dear boy. hasten matters. 1 am growing very impatient to hear that the jewel is yours. Why not: make an effort during this ball, when attention will be distraccd ana lie usual guards will be relaxed. If you don't hurry. I shall come over and do it myself, so I give you warning. I. know you hate to have your game spoilt. But after all, dear boy, I'll do my best to believe you know best. Yon are on the spot, and kuow the ins and outs better than I can, in spite of your graphic de scriptions. But in all our ups and downs and' adventures. ve have never gone in for such a ticklish piece of work before, and it behooves you to be careful. But be sure you cable so soon as you can. It will be the happiest moment of my life .when I read that the coup has been'made and the victor's triumph is yours. 'Your affectionate father, "ALEXANDER ROBERTSON."' •:'w CHAPTER XXV. There was a long silence when the de tective's reading ceased. The Rector stood erect and stern. Mr. Fenton glanced irresolutely from Billy to Moyra. the one hot. Hushed and indignant, the other cool, while and. Hive for the tightly clasped hands, appa'renty unmoved. "I again say you cannot accuse a man on such evidence." Billy said. Mr. Fenton fidgeted nervously. He was a kind-lutirted man, but he naturally enough felt the loss of his diamonds, al though at the same time he hated the po sition in which the Beresfords and lie found themselves. Billy had strongly ad vised him to let the matter drop, and bear his loss as best he could and now, see ing from Moyra's expression how much this revelation of Robertson's presumed duplicity affected her, he wished he had taken his son's advice. But when he began a remark to that effect, the Rector would not heat- of it. "Certainly not'. Such a proceeding ought not to he suggeste. Justice must and shall be done. Suspicion lies upon one whom you met under my roof and in the guise of my friend: suspicion lies even upon my daughter for having betrayed the trust confided in her"—his voice growing very cold and stern—"that suspicion must be removed or confirmed. Moyra, will you bring Bride here?" "I have told you again and again, Rec tor." declared Mr. Fenton, irritably, "that I do not think Bride is to be blamed in any way. I would much prefer that she is left out. of the matter entirely." Moyra rose very early the next morn ing. before the rest of the household were stirring. She had passed a very wakeful and disturbed night, but in the dark watches, while Aileen slept peacefully at her side, she had come to a resolution which as soon as she was dressed she car ried out. She went down to the school room, that looked very cold and cheerless in the light of the caudle she carried. She lighted the lump and put it on her writ ing table, and then, with infinite pains, she wrote a leter. pausing often to wipe away the tears that obscured her vision. "Dear Angus—A very dreadful thing has happened. Mr. Fen ton's celebrated diamonds have been stolen, and you have been suspected of taking part in the rob bery because some people are saying they saw you in the grounds that evening, ind also a letter has been found which was written to you by yo.ur father, and which they say you must have dropped. I am quite certain you could give a satisfac tory explanation of all this, and I am writing to ask you to come back at once nnd clear yourself. I know you can do it. I am sure that you know nothing of this dreadful thing,- that you are as inno, cent as I :im. -, "Ever vour sincere friend. 'r "MOYRA BEREFORD." The dressing bell rang as ahe finished the letter, and, sealing it up, she ad dressed the envelope to the hotel at which Angus had been staying. But the Lon don mail went, and the letter was still in Moyra's pocket. She had forgotten all about it in the new trouble and fresh anxiety that had fallen upon the house hold. Bride had disappeared! Her bedroom was unoccupied when Moyra took up her breakfast tray, but for the moment she was not alarmed. Bride was very fond of attending early service, and Moyra supposed she had done so. But drawing up the blind even as she was thinking she ought to have stay edtn bed and not faced the cold morning* air, Moyra caught sight of an envelope bearing her own name pinned on the dressing table. She tore it open. It was from Bride, and was written in pencil and blotted with tears. "Dear, darling Moyra—I am- going away because I have,brought trouble and disgrace oh you. But indeed I never meant to tell. ",I did not know I had until he said so. He was so clever I wish I had been a better girl. I have always been a trouble and anxiety to you. But you must forgive me. j.-y: "Always your loving BRIDE." Wlien Moyra could move—for at first she seemed paralyzed—she went .straight to her father, who was alone in the study. Her white face terrified him, and the name she uttered, as she watched his eyes travel down the sheet, and his healthy coloring change to a deathly hue, in creased his terror white face andanguUhed eyea tvriKfd I :he*s. 1 Vp« 31 "I don't 'know—I -4on't know wiiat -to think. I feel as if I eould ndt bear any more," she cHed helplessly. It was Aileen who came to the-fore to this crisis. Her practical common and cleer-hea^edtaesa were the means of restoring their customary optimlam to the stricken family. "Of course she- tiasn!* eloped with aajr one," she cried decidedly, as tbey held hasty council of war: '"She has been frightened and has loBt her head, and has gone off to get out of the way 'We all know what Bride is. No doubt she im agined she .would be put Into prison be* cause she couldn't keep a secret. Terry, you go to the postofBce and telegraph to the Hamiltons and ask if she is with them. Word the telegram carefully that Smith can't, gossip about it. We must not let people suspect she has run away yet. Moyra, you must tell (be maids not to talk about her going, and, children, don't say anything of all this t* any one. Father is the right one to tail the Fentons. Probably we shall soon get a telegram saying that she Is either With Aunt Pat or with the Hamiltons." Terry's return with the disquieting news that the reply telegrams had said that Bride was not with her friends or hev aunt reduced their spirits to their lowest ebb. Moyra found it, impossible to .re main in the house, and-when Terry got out his bicycle and prepared to ride to the railway stations in the outlying districts, she insisted upon going to the ferry her self. "I must do something," she told Aileen piteously. "I feel as though the inaction and suspense would drive me mad. Oh, where is she, my poor, misguided Bride?" t* (To be continued.) -'v SHOULD HE PAT WIFE WAGESP Clubwomen Disagree as to Haaa band's Duty In This Respect. Ought a wife to receive wages? Is the service performed by a woman in the home worthy of the same remu neration as work performed in the office of the feminine professions, says the Xew York Evening World. Philosophers of domestic economy are discussing this point and tfew York's prominent club women take issue on the question. Mrs. Harry Hastings, whose study ol economic questions, in addition to pub lic and literary matters, has made her name one of the best known in New York, takes sides forcibly against the wage proposition for wives. "Wages for the wife are impossible,* said Mrs. Hastings to-day. 'There no standard by which you can measure the services of the wife1 and mother in the home. "Immediately a wife should accept wages for her service she would as sume an inferior position." "But do you not think asking fo* money places her on the same inferior basis?" Mrs. Hastings was asked. 'There should be no occasion for that," said Mrs. Hastings. "The wif# Is entitled to a knowledge of the dlspo sltion of the husband's money. She should have a fair part for the main-i tenance of the house and a fair part for herself, independent of the house hold arrangements. "Men are more fair-minded now, and it is the common thing for the wife to receive an income. When I began housekeeping such a system did not exist. Woman's advanced position in the world has changed all this. It ia not necessary now for her to make & wage basis for her home." Mrs. Sally Morris Cory, club woman nnd writer, says that wIves should be paid wages. "There is certainly no, degradation in a woman receiving wages from her husband," said Mrs. Cory. "If there is a woman living who is entitled to regular income it is the wife. "I have seen the practical Ulustra tlon of this idea in my own experience^ and -I know that the happiest woman and the happiest home is the one where the wife receives a regular in come. "When a man marries he promisee to endow7 his helpmate with his world ly goods therefore, It Is only just that the wife should receive her part of the weekly income without question." "But do you consider the wife receiv ing a part of the income as wages?** Mrsj Cory was asked. "Do you put such an arrangement on the basis of paid service?" "Call it wages if you like," said Mrs. Cory. "I only know of my own experi ence. My father gave my mother a regular allowance, but we knew that she was a good wife, and had she not been he would not have been foolish enough to give her the regular part of bis income." "It has been contended," it was sug gested, "that such a monetary ar rangement will kill romance." "•Romance has absolutely nothing to da with It. PeopJe can't live on ro mance., There Is always the practical side to consider. "It is pure sntimentallty to put the husband and wife's financial relatione on any basis but that of regular pay ment. There Is no degradation in bar receiving what is hers by right." Caaiwd by Kiasinar. Eva—Do you consider kissing del* terious to, the health? Jack—I don't know.

The week has seen new de mands in manufacturing come forward slowly, but the exhibit is an improving one, and 'there is broader activity in the distributive lines. Low temperature aug mented the buying in leading-retail lines, particularly of heavyweight apparel and' household furnishings. Interior buyers appeared in greater numbers. Advices indicate seaaonable headway in dispoeing of country' stocks, these being now brought down comfortably, and toad talesmen report leaa difficulty in booking orders for forward delivery.- Improved financial' conditions are k fiected in a wider circulation of currency throughout the agricultural sections, and this has made mercantile collections easier, although more than a normal num ber of trading defaults is again in evi dence and extensions are frequently ask ed. The banking position shows steady recovery, there being increase in both de posits and discount operations, with money cheaper, although not yet suffi ciently inviting to attract new enterprises. Production in the leading industries is not expected to disclose notable changes, biit there is moderate increase over a month afeo in iron, 'steel, wood and leath er working, and idle forces are smaller than in last week. Important considera tions as to costs of supplies and labor and the yet limited flow of' fresh orders prolong the feeling of caution which pre vails in many quarters. Some factory outputs still lag and only slightly renew ed activity may appear in these branches before the spring months. Receipts of the raw materials continue restricted in lumber, wool and in minor metals, but have gained over last year in hides and. live stock.

Trade and financial developments have been of a rather irregular character, but, on the whole, in the direction of future improvement' at the larger centers. Con servatiyism in ordering is noted as a country-wide condition, but recent price reductions have unquestionably stimulat ed interest. The suspension of four banks lat the metropolis was. after all, only neg atively unfavorable, these being the after math of last autumn's financial storm. Underlying financial conditions are cer tainly no less favorable, money shows in creasing ease not only in this country, but all over the world, and improvement in collections, which are still slow as a whole, is in many cases the result of eas ing money making it possible to remit on past-due accounts.

I Which "Not guilty—4n the ground that be Was insane at the time of: the commie* •ton of the act charged in the Indict* uent." This was the verdlct ln the Thaw case. Justice Dowling Immediately or dered the young Pltttsburg millionaire committed to the Matteawan asylum for the criminal insane until he can convince a lunacy commission that his .discharge would not imperil the public safety. 1 When the words "Not Guilty" fell from the lips of the foreman of the Jury, the most dramatic scene ever wit nessed in a New York court' room was enacted. Thaw, who had sat all through: the trial, apparently wholly Indlffer-. ent to what was going on, leaped from his seat. He could not restrain his emotions and tears streamed down bis cheeks as he shook the hands of his counsel and thanked them over and over again. The prominence of the Thaw family, socially and financially, the circum stances surrounding Harry Thaw's mar riage to Evelyn Nesbit, artists' model and chorus girl, and the tragtc climax when he fired the bullets into the breast of the man he declared wronged his wife, all tended to attract great in terest to the events following the tra gedy, and from one end of the coun try to the other the proceedings of botb trials have been watched with unabat ed interest. Comparison of the two trials shows a notable difference in the conduct of eacb. In the first .trial Thaw's chief counsel was Delphin M. Delinas, noted HABKY X. THAW. criminal lawyer from California. Del mas made his defense the "unwritten law" and insanity. District Attorney Jerome introduced at first only such witnesses as were necessary to prove that Thaw killed White. The defense then urged that Thaw was insane at the time of the killing, and offered Evelyn Thaw's testimony to show that the story she tojd Thaw of her treatment by White drove her husband temporarily insane and caused him to kill White. The defense also introduced the tes timony of alienists, two of whom swore Thaw was suffering, from a "brain storm" when he fired the fatal shot.' Jerome during rebuttal caused a sen sation by declaring he believed Thaw was then Insane. He got the court to appoint a lunacy commission. This body decided Thaw was sane, and the trial then proceeded to its conclusion. In the trial ju^t closed the line of defense was altogether different. Mar tin W. Littleton, who replaced Delmas as chief counsel for Thaw, based the defense solely on insanity. The trial be gan on Jan. 6 and the testimony ended Jan- 28y Flrat Trial.
