"How much you make out of little
things," said Burrows admiringly.
"She came probably to hear what
passed between the man and woman in
the next compartment. Certainly shei
sat. :ri cJns" ti th- partition as possible.
Sho staid until after they had gone.
This she would naturally have done to
avoid detection, but I have- stronger
proof in the fact that near the gate I
find an imprint from the foot of the
man, and across it is one of the wom-
an. The latter is plainer than the first
and was consequently made last. By
plainer I mean that the outline of the
sole is easily traced across the larger
footprint, which it obliterates where
the two cross. There is another thing
worth noting. Observe that this woman
went almost in a straight line from the
gate into the summer house. In depart-
ing she came out in a straight line to-
ward the house and then turned and
went to the gate. Just where this turn
occurred she stopped for a moment."
"Why, you seem to discern a great
.deal. How do you deduce that?"
"Very easily and almost certainly. If
one walks or runs, the footprints must
be single and about equidistant. At the
point where I say that she stopped I
find two imprints nearly side by side.
So she stopped, but why?"
"Can you also tell that?"
"I think that I could make a very
shrewd guess. But we will leave her
for the present and take up the next set,
No. 8, a man's. He evidently had an
appointment, for he, too, entered by the
small gate and went directly to the
summer house. He returned as he came,
which strengthens the theory that his
sole object in coming was to meet some
one at this place. That it was not to
meet the woman whose movements I
have followed is shown by the fact that
his steps pass the compartment M, and
go to the other, N. There is another
point of great interest-he was attacked
by a dog."
"What? You don't nern to say that
the footprints tell you t!it.t"

'' stopped by the dog, whose foot-
marks are numerous at the point indi-
cated. Their exaggerated shape, too,
shows clearly that the dog jumped upon
the man, and that in falling back upon
his haunches the mark of his whole leg
was made. Again, from this point to-
ward the gate I note that the stride of
the man increased. This means that he
ran away. You followed the other two.
What did you discover?"
"I gave you my drawings, and you
have them shown quite accurately. No.
2, made by a woman, commences, as you
know, at the steps of the dining room
piazza and leads to the summer house.
From there I traced it over to the river,
where I found a boat landing. Thence
she returned to the steps again. No. 1,
a man's, commences at the river bank
about 200 feet south of the landing and
leads directly to the steps. Thence it
follows around the house and out
through the main gate. Outside, un-
fortunately, our party this morning
made so many footprints that I could
not follow No. 1."
"Did you cross the river, Tom?"
"No, but there is a boat there, and I
meant to suggest that we go over to-
gether. I think we will find evidence on
the other side that my lady crossed last
night. Why else should she have gone
to the boat?"
"Certainly; we will go at once, but
first I have something more to commu-
nicate. Your theory was that the shot
was fired from without and by a wom-
an, and you inclined to the belief that
you knew the identity of-that woman.
What, then, do you think of this?" He
handed Burrows a beautiful silver
mounted revolver, in the chambers of
which were four loaded cartridges and
one empty cartridge. The weapon had
apparently been recently fired. Burrows
looked at it a moment in amazement
and then asked:
"Where did you find this?"
"Outside of the summer house, lying
in the snow, just where I claim that
the woman stopped. Now you see what
I meant when I said I could guess why
she did so. But you have not seen all
yet. There is a name on it. Recad."
Burrows examined the butt more at-
tentively, and there saw a piece of plate
let into the stock, and neatly engraved
thereon the name, "Alice Marvel."
"Mr. Barnes, what do you make of
"I think that someone had that pistol
last night and fired it. From other evi-
dence that I have I should say it is a
circumstantial probability that Miss
Marvel herself was here last night and

fired her pistol."
"This is the second time you have
used that phrase, 'circumstantial prob-
ability.' Won't you explain it?"
"Certainly. We are considering a
case purely on circumstantial evidence.
I have all my life made a specialty of
such, and I divide it into three grades,
according to the logical deduction which
it indicates. The first of these I call a
'circumstantial possibility.' For exam-
ple, had the wound in this case been
differently located it might have been
a 'circumstantial possibility' that it
Was a suicide. 8econd- we. have a ,'cir-

cumstintial probability' such' as I have
here and will explain. Third, the 'cir-
cumstantial proof' where the attendant
facts leave absolutely no rcom for
doubt is in my experience a rnre thing."
"I understand. Now will you tell me
why you think it a circumstantial prob-
ability that Miss Marvel was here and
fired the pistol?"
"From the facts which I have already
given you I should say it was a ques-
tion whether she was here or whether
some one else had her pistol. But 1
found another pistol."
"The deuce you didl"
"And this one," producing a dupli-
cate of the one already shown, "also has
a name-Harry Lucas. Now follow my
argument. Squire -Olney told us that
these two young people are sweethearts.
The tracks indicate that a woman play-
ed the spy on a man who came to meet
another woman. The weapons bear the
names of a man and his sweetheart. Is
it not plain? Miss Marvel came to hear
what the other girl had to say to her
lover, and he to her."
"You are right," said Burrows ex-
citedly, "and is it not equally evident
That the second woman is Miss Lewis?
Remember, the meeting was in her own
"I am more inclined to think so than
at first, though I do not commit myself
yet. But there is another matter worth
considering. I found Lucas' weapon in
the suow at the point where I claim he
was attacked by the dog. There is also
a little blood stain"-
"Ah, I see, you argue that he-drew
Shis pistol and fired at the dog, and so
account for the empty shell there?"
"Yes. But the blood stain is impor-
tant. I think that came from a wound
made by the dog's teeth. As the discol-
oration is visible, although somewhat
covered, I believe the snow stopped
shortly after. Thus I reckon that he
left about 9 o'clock. The woman left
after the snow had ceased."
"You think Lucas shot at the dog
and dropped his pistol in the scrim-
mage. Do you think Miss Marvel shot
at the dog also?"
"That we must. find out. I have
shown you the probability of the ca.e,
ending with the i03a that both bf t5se'
pistols were fired at the dog. But there
is another aspect which you must not
neglect, and that is the 'circumstantial
possibility.' Remember that both Lu-
cas and this girl, according to the
squire's story, had threatened the dead
man. They both came here armed, an
unusual thing for a' woman at all
events. Suppose that Lucas saw Lewis
through the window and shot at him.
The noise may have attracted the dog,
and thus that contest may have occur-
red after the discharge of the weapon,
instead of before. Further, suppose that,
seeing that her lover had left, the girl
had also taken aim at the same target.
One shot may have made the hole in the
ceiling, and the other nmay have reached
the mark."
"Why, this becoams'moro complicated
every minute. What about the pistol in
Miss Lewis' room?"
"Ahl That is the problem. But,
come; we will go across the river."
Thereupon they proceeded to the boat
landing, marked L in the diagram, and
crossed in a light rowboat, which they
found fastened at that place. On the
other bank they found a continuation of
the footprints marked No. 2. These led
to the base of a gigantic maple (R),
around which a seat of boards had been
arranged. Mr. Barnes examined the
spot critically and finally said:
"I guess it was Miss Lewis after all.
See, this tree is covered with carved
monograms of her initials and Marvel's.
Evidently this has been a trysting place
for that pair of lovers. Here is another
evidence that the snow stopped shortly
after the meeting at the summer house,
for, whereas she came here directly, her
footprints on this side of the river are
quite distinct, showing that the snow
ceased during her trip over to this
"She met a man here too. See his
footprints. Could it have been the lover
this time-I mean Marvel?"
"Possibly. But let us see if we can
trace him to where he crossed the river,
if indeed it was he who did."
They followed the tracks, but they
entered the woods just back of the ma-
ple and were lost. However, a diligent
search along the river bank discovered
a track which emerged from the wood
and approached the river. They got
into the boat, rowed across to a point
opposite and found there the beginning
of the track.on that side marked in the
diagram No. 1.
"The directness of this trail from
this point to the house," said Mr.
Barnes, "is circumstantial proof that
the man crossed the river with the in-

tention of visiting that place. For
what? Whether he was or was not Lu-
cas, he had already had an interview
with Miss Lewis, and therefore his visit
was scarcely to her."
"How could it be Lucas?"
"Supposing he intended to kill Lew-
is after being interrupted by the dog,
could he not have gone around.by these
woods and returned later to' complete
his work? It is barely possible that the
whole thing was planned, that the in-
terview at the summer house was a pre-
liminary,, and that Miss Lewis went to
the maple, where she was later joined

A Paritalamnt Custom.
Before the speech from the throne i
road, when the houses are resumed i]
the afternoon, by the lord chancellor ii
the house of lords and the speaker in thi
house of commons, it is the practice ii
both houses to read one bill a first tim
pro form in order to assert their right
of deliberation without reference to thi
immediate cause of summons. Thick
practice is enjoined in the house of lord
by a standing order. In the house o
commons the same form is observed
pursuant to ancient custom and of thl
following resolution, passed March 223
1603: "That the first day of every sit
ting in every parliament some one bill
and no more, receiveth a first reading
for form sake." In the house of comn
mons the clerk of parliaments produces
an. ancient document which has served
this purpose for at least a century, en.
titled "A bill for effectually prevent
ing clandestine outlawries," which is
duly read a first time and ordered to be
read a second time and will never b(
heard of again till the opening of the
next session.-London News.

rounded Race point and sought shelter
in what is now the harbor of Province-

ever, and the loss of life on this most
dangerous part of the whole New Eng-

A list, admitted to be incomplete, of
the wrecks since 1873 shows that 151

gone to pieces on the pitiless sa-nds of

to get up many times during Ihe night to
urinate. The mild and the extrnordiniary

while there, and when it was concluded
I was so glad to get away that I saw
but little of the city."

feelingly. "How long ago was it, and
where did you stop?"

Te purpose of this Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to St
'Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
To accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
value of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shibrtest practicable time every sunb tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The first questiiin which will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"? Ani the ian er to it is: Any person i, muplying the Association
to make improvetacrnts may ."1',.'it all approximate payment of the estimated cost of
-. tre-aime with any responsiblle business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the impro emeint-s have been made according to agreement.
The Association will nIt only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping,guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
for damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
"From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plan4ttion inthe St. Andrewv Bay country a few figures are given:
P.rice dfIana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20:; ost of planting Ist
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20,
1-t is hot extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, incoming into profitable hearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
Valnuts, Japan chestnuts, pecans, and many other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered certain yieldlarge returns oftener than they miss
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
sweriunletters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.
RE M E M B E R the Association.Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given

A Bridge ot Strange Design,
Boston Traveler.
One of the strangest bridges in the
world will be built over the river
Seine, near Rouen. Passengers will
cross at the level of the banks-which
are not high-and yet the bridge
will offer no impediment to naviga-
This is the way It will be done:
On each side of the river will be
erected a tower 170 feet high, and at
that elevation a lattice work bridge
will be thrown across. Rails will be
laid on the bridge, and they will car-
ry a skeleton platform on wheels,
which can be pulled back and forth
by steam or electricity. Cables of
steel wire will depend from the plat-

hold a hundred passengers, and also
vehicles. The loaded car will be
pulled across by means of the rolling
platform. At each side of the river
the bridge connects with train-car
lines, and it is intended the cars shall
be rolled upon the hanging bri.lge
and the passengers transferred from
one side of the river to the other
without leaving their seats.
It is said that the only similar
bridge in the world i; at Bilbao.
Make the Most of Yourself.
It is the duty of every man to make
the most of himself. Whatever his
capacities may be, lie is sure to find
some place where he can be useful to
himself and to others. But lie can-
not reach his highest usefulness with-
out good health and he cannot have
good health without pule blood. The
blood circulates to every organ and
tissue and when it is pure, rich andi
healthy it carries health to the en-
tire system, but if it is impure it
scatters disease wherever it flows.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is the one true
blood purifier. it cures salt rheum,
scrofula, catarrh, dyspepsia and-
rheumtatism because these diseases
have their origin in the blood.

The Pandects of Justinian.
The pandects of Justinian, the most
complete body of Roman laws ever col-
lected, were supposed to be lost, but in
1137, when Amalfi was taken and plun-
dered by the Pisans, a private soldier
found a copy which he sold -to an officer
for a few pence. The value of the discov-
ery was soon apparent and the precious
volume was taken to Pisa and stored in
the city library. When Pisa was stormed
by the Florentines, in 1415, the precious
volume was captured and taken to Flor-
ence, where it was placed in the library
of the Medici.


Miss Shepherd was an emotional or-
chid grown under the glass of repression
through which beat the merciless rays
of an abnormal conscience always at
tropical zenith. Had she lived in the
good old days when liberty and the
stake were planted side by side on New
England soil, she might have obtained
a comfortable solace by burning witches
and exhibiting other devotional graces
indicative of a deep and discerning spir-
ituality. But this pious sedative to a
restless conscience was denied her. Un-
fortunately her mortal advent had been
delayed until this grosser age when the
most spiritual lawgiver would think
twice before condemning a heretic to
the flames and when many are so weak
and vacillating as to admit that they do
not know the whole truth. She pos-
sessed an unreasonable reason, which
had to be satisfied with the plain food
of transparent moralities and would
take no other. To her obtuse spiritual
vision abstract right appeared in the
guise of an inevitable rule of conduct
and this curious mental deformity natu-
rally drew her into endless predica-
ments of-tle most uncomfortable kind.
As she came up the steps of the
Wells street station and pushed past the
bus drivers and cabmen along the curb,
she was rushing forward into the vortex
of one of these conscience whirlpools
more swift and turbid than any which
had yet tossed and swirled her frail but
ventures.L., htiark on its black waters.
Far fream biting weighed down by any
premonition of this impending condi-
tion, she was conscious only of the fa-
miliar smell of roasting coffee which
came on the lake breeze from the whole-
sale coffee houses to the east. The
fragrance made her hungry and she
found herself tempted, at a scandalously
early hour, into the refectory of a big
State street department store where she
went to shop. Her appetite always
seemed to suffer a sudden inflation on
coming from Gray Willow into the city.
"Grace Shepherd!"
This exclamation arrested the delicate
china cup on its initial trip to her lips,
as she caught sight of a tall young man
at her side standing with his napkin in
hand. She responded:
"Frank-Mr. Hyattl I thought you
were in London reveling in fog, ale and
other bohemian et ceteras, victimizing
publishers and writing yellow literature
for yellow books."
"I guess you've been reading the
Gray Willow Gazette, Grace, eh? The
country editor at home was simply prac-
ticing for my obituary. They're delight-
fully anticipatory creatures. I'm pained
to make the confidential report, how-
ever, that at the present time I'm grasp-
ing after afew literary gems with which
to illumine the select advertising pages
of a magazine:

But tell me about yourself, Grace. Are
you staying in town now?"
"I Eli.n tdrl::. I'm to be a compan-
ion, or.,.rnl t::g of the kind, to Mrs.

"Y.-s?" A;fd liesmiled guiltily. "I
lhink you'll mind the position rather
picasant., In fact, Ive worked at it a
bit myself. Crll there once or twice a
fortnight. Phoebe is a rather pretty girl
-stylish and all that-but, well, I'd
hate to leave a package of 'tuty fruty'
in any of her secret haunts today if I
cared as much for it as when we three
used to sit in the back row at the Gray
Willow school."
In the disturbing recollections of her
chance encounter with one who had
been constantly in her thought since the
first time when he had "seen her home"
from conference meeting in Gray Wil-
low she almost forgot that she wad to
meet Mrs. Graves in the silk depart-
ment and be driven to her new home in
the Graves carriage.
"This," said Mrs. Graves after they
had gone to the chambers of the Prairie
avenue mansion, "is to be your room. I
hope you will like it. Let me stay and
chat with you as you unpack your
trunk. Goodness, what a stack of white
paper! One 'would think you wrote for
the papers."
A noncommittal smile on the part of
the young woman was a practical plea
of guilt.
"How lovely! Why didn't you tell
me of this? It's just the very accom-

plishment I most desire in a compan-
ion for Phoebe. But I hope you write
poetry. Yes? Splendid! I shall have
that lovely writing desk which we no-
ticed down town sent up to your room
tomorrow, and you'll do me some verses
right away, won't you, dear? Of course
I shall pay you extra for them. I want
to-well, they are just what I want."
Had it not been for something which
startled the speculation cut of her mind
Miss Shepherd would have spent her
first night as a fashionable companion
in solving the riddle of why Mrs. Graves
should be in such frantic need of poetry.
That something was a ounfidentihd in-
terview with Miss PLh-be in the latter's
room. With a childi.-h and generous
impetuosity the girl slipped her arm
about Miss Shepherd's waist and con-
"I'm going to begin by telling you
something very important. Frank Hyatt
is coming to call tomorrow night and
take me to a concert. He's just lovely. "
"Yes?" Volumes of recollections were
betrayed in the tone of Miss Shepherd's
response. There was a moment of si-
lence. It broke in a storm, a shower of
sobs and tears from the face which
buried itself against Miss Shepherd's
"Oh, promise--promise me that you
will never, never do a single thing to
separate us. You won't, will you?" she
Pity for the impulsive young girl in
the fear of her first love dictated Miss
Shepherd's so-.tlhing; answer.
"No, dear; nothing that I do shall
ever separate you from him. You don't
think I could be so cruel and treacher-
ous as to do such a thing."
The promise had to be many times re-
peated during the days which followed.
Sitting alone in the softly lighted li-
brary one evening, a sad processional of
banished dreams and remembrances
passed themselves with intrusive per-
sistence before her. backward mental
glance. In final desperation she

turned the light to its full and took
up the leading society paper from the
For a moment only her face flushed
with the light of secret pleasure. There,
in clear but dainty typography, was the
last poem which she had written. The
next moment her expression mirrored
the changes of anger, grief, moral re-
sentment and indignation and finally
betrayed a conflict of all these im-
pulses. She leaned back in the chair,
closed her eyes and sat motionless,
without a sign of consciousness save the
tears that escaped from under her long,
drooping eyelashes.
The cause? At the bottom of the poem
was the signature Phoebe. When at
last she arose from her lethargy she
made a hurried examination of more
papers. There she found other of her
poems with the same false signature at-
tached. It was little sleep or rest that
came to her eyes until she had possessed
herself of the principal elements in her
complication of conscience. These were
that the ambitious mother had placed
the poems with the various editors, leav-
ing the latter with the well defined im-
pression that they were the work of her
daughter. This impression became gen-
erally communicated to the social cir-
cles in which the Graveses moved and
the compliments which were brought to
the young woman were certainly not re-
pelled. The invitations and attentions
received by the daughter were flatter-
ing and Mrs. Graves was apparently
lihrpy in the success of her shrewd
mov mcu .t.
One moment Miss Shepherd was ex-
ultant with determination to follow a
high sense of duty and reasoned with
Yes, I must expose the whole thing.
It is base, dishonest, oppressive and cor-
rupt. It is worse than stealing. It will
be an awful ordeal for all, but I must
expose the wickedness of it. The next
moment she would temper her high de-
termination with the reflection, "But
what about my promise to Phoebe? To
expose that sham would be to put an
end to all relations between Frank Hy-
att and the poor girl. He would despise
her forever and her mother more than
she. All their wealth would not weigh
with his impulsive judgment and fine
sense of honor against such a hollow
and revolting sham, and it would crush
the child. Then Mrs. Graves bought the
poems and only the signature of
Phoebe was attached, just as any pen
name might have been had it not hap-
pened to have been the given name of
her daughter."
One day, while passing the publica-
tion office of the society paper in which
the poems of Phoebe had appeared, the
impulse to go in, have an interview with
the editor and end the whole cruel strug-
gle seized her. She entered the corridor
of the building and was walking to the
elevator with the desperate haste of one
fearful that courage might give place to
hesitation when a cheerful voice ex-
claimed :
"Oh, Grace! Pardon.me for stopping
you. but I wish to see you for a mo-
ment. Would you mind stopping over to
the 1Masonic temple a moment with me?
We can have an opportunity to chat in
freedom and seclusion on one of those
inviting benches in the corridor of an
upper flcor. That place is a perpetual
inspiration to me. Its height seems to
provoke in me a corresponding elevation
of thought. I do some of my beat think-
ing on those benches, where I can peer
over the rail into the depths below. "
She silently acceded to his sugges-
"Isn't that as artistic as an old fash-
ioned hearthside settle?" he asked as
they took seats on one of the oak
benches. "First," he continued, "I
want to tell you of the disgusting trick
that the Graveses are guilty of. You may
not know it, but I was out to luncheon
with the editor of Society the other day
and he told me that"-
"Yes, I know all about that," inter.
rnpted his companion.
"You dol Well, I shouldn't have
been surprised, for it's just like your
generosity and forbearance to suffer a
thing like that for the sake of others
and the fear of injuring their feelings.
But I wouldn't have your conscience--
not for an interest in The Century Mag-
azine or a bicycle manufactory. It sim-
ply sickened me, and I've not been tc
their house since, you know.
"But, Grace, that isn't a beginning
of what Iwant to say to you. Let me
finish now. Ever since you tied my red
scarf for me at recess that winter day
in the old Gray Willow schoolhouse I
have known that I loved you. But am-
bition has kept me out of the kingdom
of your love. If I stay out any longer,
it will be because you shui; me out."
Then with an exultant laugh he added,
"And you wouldn't do that when an

eastern house has just accepted my
novel, would you?"
To cry or to laugh becomes a com-
pulsory choice at certain moments in a
woman's life. This was such a moment,
and as environments were unpropitious
for weeping she chose the other alterna-
tive, and, echoing his mood, laughingly
"That would seem a bit cruel, and,
besides, all my collection of printed slips
from publishers, 'Declined with thanks,'
are at home."
With the drop of the elevator which
carried the reunited lovers to the ground
floor ended the literary career of a young
society girl, and a burden on the con-
science of her Puritanical 'companion'
was as swiftly dissolved.-Chicago
