A CLEW By ALLAN G. LAMOND Copyright, 1910, by American Press Association. 0 We were working very hard at the factory, few of us getting away be fore midnight. One evening I went to sleep at my work, and the foreman told me to go home and to bed. It was 9 o'clock and there was little chance of the others getting away till 11. Going to the eoat room, I took down my overcoat, put it on and, thrusting my hand into a pocket for my gloves, pulled out a package done up in brown paper. Unrolling it, I saw a thick layer of bank bills. S I I 51 Elastic Bookcases can be obtained only at our store, as we are the exclusive agents in this city, for this and other trade-marked lines of high-grade furniture. W. Cahill 'South Dakota I looked about me and, seeing that I was alone in the room, rerolled the package and put it back in my pocket. Having taken tliis precaution in stinctively, I began to consider the sit uation. It was evident that a mistake had been made. But what mistake? Had the owner of the bills been iuad vortently using my eoat and put his money in my pocket, thinking it was his own, or had he thrust them in hurriedly a? it lmng on the hook? Were they his own. or had he come by them dishonestly? Here a new idea came to mo. He might have stolen the bills and put them temporarily where they would not compromise him. If so he would probably come for them. Young as I was. I recognized the Im portance of the matter. I might appro priate the money to my own use. I had no intention of doing so. A dread came to me that if the money had been stolen and it were found in my pocket I would have to go to state prison. I decided ipiiekly what I would do and did it at once. I carried the coat into the counting room, where I found the treasure?' of the company, Mr. Ilumber. and handed him the package. Tie opened it and his eyes at the same time, counted the bills and quick as a Hash said to me: "Go hang your coat where it hung before. But stop a mo ment. The package filled with ordi nary paper must be in it. There that will do. Now carry the coat back, hang it up and take position where you will be hidden and watch and see who takes the property. to have any one else In the secret at present and rely upon you to be watchful. These notes have been stol en from this ollice, and it is of the ut most importance that we discover the thief."" I ran back with the coat, put it on its hook among a number of others and, enscouscing myself behind a door opening against a corner of the room, stood ready for the spying. I soon tired of standing and took a seat on the lloor, there being just room enough Cor me to sit. An hour passed, and, though several took 7)iine. Then there was a long in terval, during which no one came. Be fore that interval was broken I had fallen asleep. Awaking with a start, I looked for my overcoat. Hunning to It, I thrust ray hand into the pocket ivhere the dummy had been put. It was impossible for me to face Mr. number that night. Taking the over coat with uie, I went home to find my mother and sister waiting for me. They were both very much troubled at my appearance and greatly excited when I told them the story. \/r \ty!

I re mained awake till dawn, and my mother awakened me half an hour later. 'Get up, my son," she said. "We have a clew to the thief." I sprang out of bed, dressed and after swallowing a cup of coffee went to the factory. When Mr Ilumber saw me ho looked relieved. "I thought you had failed me," he said. I told him the story of my going to sleep on watch. Then I added: "My sister found a clew in the pock et of the coat last night after I went to bod. She will not trust me with It after my carelessness last night, but ways slie will give it to any one you may send for it." "I'll go myself," ho said. show me the way." I led him to my home, and a few moments later Maggie came down with a bit of white folded paper in her hand. "Last night," she said to Mr. num ber, "after my brother had gone to bed I instinctively took up the coat and examined it thoroughly, thrusting my hand in every pocket successively. When from the right lower pocket, where ho tells mo the package was placed, I withdrew my hand I noticed a hair that had been caught between two of my fingers. Here it is." She opened the paper very carefully aud showed him the hair. It was a flery red. "Good!" said Mr. Ilumber. "I think that you might as well have shown me the thief." He refolded the paper about the hair $2,000 and at the same time proved my fionesty. I?e also said that the service would be recognized in time, but not till the thief had been discovered.
