Into a chair.
"Ol gewoldt)" he cried and ran both
his hands through his thick black hair.
"What's the trouble now. Itarney':"
Abe Potash asked.
It was at least five minutes before
Barney was calm enough to reply.
"We are missing in six wcs bhi'-lc!

"Maybe it's a shortage in delivery,

Barney shook his head.
"Yesterday we got it, and today we
ain't got it." he said. "Some one
pinched it on us."
Ahe sat down heavily and set his hat
hack from his forehead.
"Yes. Mawruss," he said bitterly,
"that's a foreman for you! We are
missing in silk $1300. Where is it? lie
don't know. All he could say is some
one pinched it. and mind you. Maw
russ, his brother is a policeman!"
Barney rocked to and fro and clutch
ed his hair with both lists.
"If you expert you should find it
that way," Abe continued, "you don't
need to got a policeman for a brother."
"Enough's enough. Barney." Morris
broke in. "You mourned good and
plenty by now. Barney. Tell us who
you think done it."
Barney stopped rocking.
"Itifkin," he said.
"Uifkin!" Abe exclaimed. "What are
you talking nonsense? Rifkln! I know
his jK»opie from the old country yet.
His father was a rabbi."
"I know it," said Barney, "but his
brother, Aaron Itifkin, is in the rem
nant business—all kinds of remnants
from sllllk, wool, velvet on Hester
street."
He rocked to and fro for three min
utes, and then stopped again.
"Near the corner of Eld ridge." he
said, and resumed his rocking.
"Stop It!" Abe yelled. "You make
me dizzy in the head. Why do you
think Hlfkln done it?"
"Why?" Barney repeated in blank
astonishment. "Why? A questionf I
am just telling you Itlfkin's brother is
in the remnant business."
"Stire. I know." Abe concluded, "but
•our brother is In the policeman busi
ness, so Mr. Perlmutter and me. we
figure it out like this—either you would
Hud the silk by Monday, or you would
Und another job. and that's all there

Max Greenberg. Barney's brother,
hud never read the works of Gahoriau
or Conan Doyle, but he was thorough
ly conversant with the methods of de
tection In vogue with the metropolitan
police.
"Leave It to me. Barney." he said on
the following morning, when Barney
eonfidentlnlly »i ipiainu him with Urn
vlvcumstaiii.'es of the theft.
It being Mux's -day off. he urcotupa
nied Ikiiruey to the cutting room of
Potash & i'erlinmicr. Wlivn they en
tered I'incus Uifkin was laying out his
cloth In long, smooth folds on a cutting
tahlc, preparatory to chalking out the
pattern on the upper layer. He was
humming a psalm to the traditional He
brew melody, for I'lncus was a pious
mail, as buvumvs Ibv sou of a rabbi.
By foiivii of that same piety, his whis
kers had never known the retining in
tiuvijcv of scissors siuve thvy first

peaceful asiH'ct, and in contemplating
their profusion one was apt to lose
night, of the well developed chest over
which they cascaded. Moreover, Piu
cus had a jaunty way of carrying him
self that made the other cutters ami
oitcraiors treat him respectfully. But
Max saw only the Mowing whiskers,
and he winked confidently at hi*
hrot her.
"I)!s here is a pipe," he muttered.
"Come hore," lie growled, advancing
toward I Mucus.
I'lncus smiled and shrugged his shoul
ders. His English was rather weak,
and ho relied a great deal upon gesture.
"You're Itifkin, ain't yer?" Max went
on.
"Lure," sn id IMncus.
Max thrust his chin out until it was
at le.'ist six inches in advance of the
rest of his lndy.
"Who piiichvd the silk?" he bellowed.
"Sillik':" said I'lncus. "What sllllk?"
"G'wan!" Max roar«!. "You ain't
never seen no silk, have you? You
don't know narten about it, do you
Maybe dls'll make you remember!"
lie threw back his right arm and,
clinching Iiis list, aimed straight for
the point of Pincus* jaw. Unfortunate
ly for Max and fortunately for I'lncus.
the patriarchal beard obscured a reced
ing chin, and what was Intended for a
crashing blow glanced harmless past
the side of Pincus' neck and nearly dis
located Max's shoulder.
Then it was that the spirit of Judas
Maccabeus became reincarnated in the
frame of i'lncus itifkin. With a shout
that echoed through the cloak and suit
establishment of Potash tV Perlmutter,
he leaped upon the astonished Max
Greenberg. After the dust settled, it
required the combined efforts of the
twenty odd operators to pry him loose
from Max's throat.
They sent around the coiner for a
doctor, who resorted to artificial respir
ation before Max Greenberg recovered
sutlieiently to go home in a cab at
Potash A: Perlmutter's expense, but
the moral influence of having a police
man for a brother was dissipated, per
haps forever, in the minds of those
operators in the cutting
twenty odd
room.
"Of course he stole the silk. Maw
russ," said Abe the next morning, as
they discussed the affray. "Otherwise
why should lie try to murder Barney's
brother? Ain't it?"
"Maybe Barney's brother hit him
first. Abe," Morris suggested.
"Barney's brother is a policeman.
Mawruss," Abe went on: "and you
know as well as 1 do, Mawruss, that a
policeman is a loafer. But Uifkin
comes from decent, respectable people
in the old country, and his fal her is a
rabbi. Ain't it? So why should Itifkin
light like a policeman fights? A fel
ler which he acts like a policeman is a
thief, too, I bet yer."
Morris lit a cigar and puffed away
with a sour expression on his face.
"I guess, Abe," lie said, "we'd better
forget all about this hero silk and gel
down to business."
"Forget about it, Mawruss:" Abe
repeated. "Forget nothing! 1 suppose.
Mawruss. $.'10(1 ain't nothing to you.
Mawruss. I suppose vou pick S"'0f
up in the street. Mawruss. No. siree,
Mawruss. 1 ain't no policeman, and I
ain't no rabbi's son. neither. Mawruss.
But I guess got a little gumption, too.
and I'll get back that silk if 1 have to
take Itlfkin's brother myself and shake
the silk ou: of him."
The exterior of Aaron Itlfkin's stor-
little betrayed the prosperity of the
business transacted within, for en
trance was had through a narrow slit
between a soda water stand and a fish
stall. Above this aperture, however,
hung an elaborate sign, on which ap
peared in gilt letters the English word
"Remnants," spelled phonetically In
straggling Hebrew characters. If this
had not been sufficient to guide Abe's
footsteps squarely in the entrance
stood a replica of Pincus Itifkin, with
flowing heard and apologetic smile
complete.
Abe elbowed his way past Pincus'
brother into the dark store and made
»straight for the counter.
"Nu," said Aaron, "what can 1 do for
you?"
"Some silk I want to see It." Abe re
plied.
"SillikV" Aaron murmured. "What
for sillik you would like?"
"Black silk," said Alte.
Aaron went behind the counter and
pulled down a roll of silk.
"Here is .»lack sillik." he said "good
black sillik."
"Ilow much is there here?" Abe
asked.
"Dreissig yard." said Aaron.
"Thirty vards. hey?" Abe rejoined
"What you done with the restV"
"The rest Aaron exclaimed. "What
d'ye mean—the rest? There ain't no
rest. That's all there is of it."
Abe picked tip the silk and put it un
der his arm.
"Half a loa I ot bread." he said. "Is
better as no bread at ail," and he turn
ed and walked calmly out of the store.
"Hey. mister!" Aaron yelled franti
cally. but Abe kept steadily on. and lie
had reached the corner of ICIdridge
street before Aaron could scramble
over the counter.
"Po-lee-eece!" Aaron howled. "Po
l*e-eeee!"
At once the cry was taken up by
hundred voices until it was borue to
Has Greenberg, who was sunning him
self In front of the public school a
block away. He secured a fresh grip
on his club, and, taking pushcarts two
at a jump, bounded toward the corner
of Kldridge street.
At tills juncture Abe committed a
breach of judgment. Had he pro
ceeded down the street as deliberately
as he had quitted Aaron's store, no one
would have suspected him to be the
quarry of the ensuing chase. The im
pulse to run was too strong, however,
and he took to his heels just as Max
Greenberg hove into sight. The next
moment he tripped over a rejected head
of cabbage, and his nemesis, in the
person of Max. was literally upon him.
If Max's aim had been poor on the
previous day. there were at least no
errors of marksmanship on this oc
casion. and when Abe was arraigned
before the desk sergeant in the Eld
ridge street police station, one of his
eyes was completely closed, while the
other was reduced to a mere slit.
"Comes this here loafer into mein
store," said Aaron, "and says he wants
to see some sillik. and before I could
stop him at all, he quick takes the
sillik, and runs away from mein store."
"What d'ye want to take his silk
for?" the sergeant asked A be.
"Not his silk," said Abe. "My silk!
His brother Pincus stole it from my
factory already, and gives it to him.
Six pieces black silk worth
"Black sillik!" Aaron exclaimed.
"Why, I ain't got not one piece black
sillik In mein store. The store was
dark, and this here loafer thinks it
was black sillik. It ain't no such
thing. It's blue sillik!"
"Blue silk!" Abe cried. "That's a
fine swindler. Why. actually the feller
told me it was black silk."
"Swindler, hey?" the sergeant com
mented. "That's certainly tough on
you. He cheated you Into stealing blue
silk Instead of black silk. Next time
you steal black silk you want to see
that It's in the daylight, so that you
won't get stuck. Take him back, offi

"Hold on «lere, sergeant," Max broke

Abe lost 1» time In making for the
door, but Aaron lingered.
"Mein sillik," he said, with a con
ciliating smile. "I'lease, mister!"
"What silkV" cried the sergeant. "I
ain't seen no silk."
"Hille sillik," said Aaron, showing no
disposition to leave.
"Otlicer," thundered the sergeant,
"put this man out!"
Max grabbed the shrinking Aaron by
the collar and rushed him to the door.
Then with one mighty kick lie pro
pelled him to the gutter.
"Give dat to your brudder l'incus."
he called after him, "and tell him It
was from me!"
Several days elapsed before the clonk
and suit establishment of Potash &
Perlmutter assumed Its normal hive
like activity. Itarney Greenberg again
held sway over the twenty-odd opera
tors, with the perfect discipline that

Morris viewed those badges of his
partner's misfortune with marked dis
approval.

WHY SUFFER SO?
Why sulTei- from a bad buck,
from shooiings twinges, head
aches, dizziness and distressing
urinary ills? Grateful people ru
commend Dunn's Kidney Pills.
Could you ask for stronger
proof of merit?
Mrs. William Bau mann, Web
jster, S. D., says: "The first I
knew that my kidneys were out
iof order was when I began to
suffer from a dull, heavy ache in
the small of my back. When
I
I ti ied to straighten alter stooping,
I sharp pains darted through me.
I had severe headaches and
dizzy spells and the action of my
kidneys was irregular and
dis­
tressing. 1 doctored but didn't
get relief until 1 used Doan's
Kidney I'ills. My condition im
proved and have very little trou
ble from my kidnevs or back
now.''
Price 50c at all dealers. Don't
I
simply ask lor a kidnev
get Doan's Kidnev Pills—the same
I that liammiiiii had.
