to send :i man to make an examination
of tile premises with view to picking
up clew The murdered man is Mr.
Charles Forsythe, a wealthy gcutle
man, whose address you will find on
this card. I am assured that nothing
In the room where the murder was
committed has been touched. Go at
once and see what you can make out
Flawkins went to the address given,
where he found a dwelling indicating
that the inmates were people of con
siderable means, lie was received at
a room where lay the corpse of Mr.
Forsythe on the iloor. There had evi
dently been a struggle, during which he
had been stabbed to the heart. A bu
reau drawer stood open which had evi
dently been rifled. Several small pieces
of jewelry were scattered on the floor.
Hawkins was informed that the vic
tim bad been fond of jewelry, though
be wore very little of it on his own
person. He had kept what he owned,
consisting of studs, sleeve buttons,
stickpins, rings, etc., in the drawer.
The robber bad taken all there was ex
cept the few articles dropped on the
floor, either during the scuttle or In his
haste of departure. Hawkin» gathered
up what he found and put it in his vest
pocket He was a silent man, as de
tectives should be, taking in what he
heard and saw and giving out nothing.
Indeed, after his examination of the
room the only information he gave any
one was a list of the articles of jewelry
that he had picked up on the floor.
This be banded in to a Mr. Withers, a
relative of the family who had been
given the care of the house. This list
was given because the articles were
some other articles, but since they were
of no especial value he did not include
them In the list.
Having finished his examination of
the room lu which the murder had
been committed. Hawkins requested
that every one In the house, including
the servants, be assembled in the draw
ing room. Mrs. Forsythe and her chil
dren were excused until after the oth
ers had been inspected, and then the
detective excused them altogether.
Those assembled consisted of the fol
lowing persons: Miss Ash worth, a gov
erness a cook, a housemaid and the
butler. Of the four Miss Ash worth
showed the most agitation. They seem
ed to realize that they were brought lie
fore the stranger for a preliminary ex
aminatiou as to their possible com
plicity iu the murder. The cook ami
housemaid were very ill at ease. The
only person who seemed to be sutli- sleeve buttons, sir."
eicnt.ly conscious of inuoevnee to he
perfectly safe was tlie butler, nn Fng
lislminn, whoso name was Mosely.
That lie was of Hie lower class was
evident not only from his position as a
servant, hut that lie had the manner
of speech of a low bred Englishman
getting his h's In the wrong place.
Nevertheless, he was a good looking
Hawkins soon set I hem all at ease
by asking ipiesliuns which pertained
to possibilities of entrance and exit to
I and from the house, whether a door
I or a window had been left unfastened,
what time Mr Forsythe had gone to
bed. whether any cue of them had
heard a sound in I lie night. While
making these inquiries the detective
indicated by his features and tone of
voice that I he.\ were uf vital Impor
tance to the case. I'hev did not ap
pea I', however, tu dc'-eive Miss Ash
worth. wln continued to look at him
as if lie had his eye on her and was
simply asking the cpie-Mions to throw
her (iIT her guard while ids steel gray
eye was searching her for guilt.
While this examination was 1 icing
made the door opened and Ml' Withers
entered and said to the detective:
"Mr. Hawkins, it lias just been dis
covered hat some of Mrs l-'orsyllie's
jewels have disappeared."
Hawkins turned those merciless eyes
of Iiis upon Mis Ashworth. She bore
the glance Ioi a few moments, then
swayed a nil fell from the chair In
which she sal. The housemaid picked

others sin «as la id on the sofa.

•Ion with some man: ttant It had been
arranged between them, on her Infor
mation, for him to enter the house and
take Mr. Forsythe's jewels, while she
stole those of Mrs. Forsythe. Her
confederate had awakened the man he
robbed and had been obliged to kill
him in order to effect his escape.
The day passed without Miss Ash
worth being arrested. She kept her
room that and the next day. Then it
was whispered among the servants that
she was under arrest, that bail had
been given and she was awaiting the
action of the grand jury. The butler
ventured to ask Mr. Withers if this
were so. but Mr. Withers declined to
talk about the case. The abscnce of a
denial was considered a confirmation
of the suspicion.
THE SISSETON WEEKLY STANDARD.
A week passed and there were no de
vclopments in the Forsythe murder
case. The public accused the police of
negligence, and the police gave out
that they were hot on the murderer's
heels and were gathering evidence that
would insure Iiis conviction. The truth
was that they had not a scrap uf evi
dence against any one.
Meanwhile Miss Asliworth returned
to her duties. Mrs. Forsythe gave out
that she needed occupation and the
children needed to be returned to their
studies. At any rate, the home school
work began again, and Miss Ash worth
seemed rauch improved at having some
thing to do. There were various opin-
ions as to the position In which she
the door bv the but er and shown Into ...
stood, but no one knew anvthitig about
it Gradually It came to he doubted if.
after all, she were guilty, though her
collapse had indicated that she was.
The servants, except the butler, sym
pathized with her. He differed from
them concerning her, and when they
called him hard hearted be became In
dignant and gave up his situation.
The Forsythe murder case gradually
dropped from public notice and came
to be considered one of the murder
mysteries that would never be solved.
If the widow had not been rich the
loss of her Jewels would bave made
a great difference to her, for, while
her husband's had been of little val
ue, hers were worth a fortune in
themselves. But she made no com
plaint against the police for not hunt
ing down her husband's murderer.
But perhaps this was because she was
assured that the detective bureau that
had been given the case was still hope
One morning a man passed out of
the lobby of a London hotel and stood
without the entrance as if not know
ing what to do with himself. Lie was
fine looking, well dressed, and the only
retained by the detective, lie kept indication that he was not to the man- I much of Its trade to the Dutch, and
ner born was that he was chewing a
toothpick. Presently he strolled down
the street. As he passed a window of
the lobby a man arose from his seat,
went out and followed him.
The first of these two persons turned
into a stockbroker's office, walked to
the tape, looked at the quotations and
asked how "Americans" were selling.
Being informed that they were higher,
he gave an order to sell. While wait

Rebuilt—Due to Port Facilities.
Antwerp repeatedly has been bom I
barded and otherwise has suffered
from the linages uf war, hut each
time bus managed through the wunder
ful commercial advantages of its posi
tion to build itself up again and to re
sume Its pla.-e as one of the great
ports of the world.
One of the tirst things history con
tains about Antwerp is Its destruction
by the Northmen In 830. It was rebuilt
and developed Its wealth until late In
the fifteenth century the trade ot
Bruges was transferred to it by the
German King Maximilian.
The protection of Emperor Charles
V. enabled Antwerp to become per
haps the wealthiest city on the conti
nent, surpassing even Venice.
Thousands of the industrious and
thrifty citizens of Antwerp were ban
ished and sought refuge In England
under the persecutions of the Duke of
Alva In the latter part of the sixteenth
century, ami in 1570 the Spanish sol
diers massacred 0,000 citizens, pillaged
the town and burned down the central
part of it. Eight hundred buildings
were destroyed and $10,000,000 dam
age to property was done.
Nine years later the city was captur
ed by Duke Alexander of Parma after
a fourteen months' siege, in which It
suffered severely. The city then lost
the peace of Westphalia completed the
destruction of the city's commerce.
With the collapse of the supremacy
of Austria, Antwerp took on a new
lease of life. Napoleon I. helped the
city by constructing a harbor and new
quays. In IS l-l the city's troubles be
gan again. It was defended against
the allies for a time, but finally was
surrendered to the British.

Ten days after this episode the for
mer butler of the Forsythes was lodged
in jail In America. One of the sleeve
bullous lie hail worn when arrested
was proved to have belonged to the
murdered man, the one produced by
Hawkins, who had arrested liitn, was
shown to be Its mate, while the third
was pronounced by experts an imper

Forsythe's jewels and with the money
had speculated, making a pro tit. (.'on

In deceive Moselv as to his suspicion he

governess' collapse. As soon as she re
vived lie relieved her of all suspicion,
