"Hut you, my dear Mr. Cornstalk!"
he cried, turning his shining eyes
upon me. while his fingers deftly re-
placed the gems m the bag.
"I have no jewelry." I replied, toss-
ing aside the cigarette.
Hut you have something Infinitely
better, I am rather observant. In
Frlard's curio-shop you carelessly ex-
hibited a wallet that was simply chok-
ing to death with long yellow-boys.
You have It still. Will you do me
the honor?"—stretching out his slim
I looked at William; he nodded.
There wasn't the slightest chance for
me to argue. So I drew out my wal-
let. I extracted the gold-bills and
made a neat little packet of them. It
hurt, hurt, like the deuce, to part with
"Game, William, isn't he? Most
men would have flung the wallet at
Oh. he Is. ga*ne, sir: never you
doubt It, sir," said the amiable Wil-
"I have some silver In change
suggested with senio bitterness.
"Far be it that I should touch sil-
ver," he sn'd generously, did this
rogue. "Besides, you will need some
thing lo pay for this little supper and
the fare back to New York." My bills
disappeared Into his pocket. "You
will observe that 1 trust you Implicitly.
I haven't even counted the money."
"And is there anything further?" I
Inquired. The comedy was beginning
to weary me, It was so one sided.
I am In no particular hurry," the
•rogue answered, his aardonls smile
returning. "It Is so long since I have
'chatted with people of my kind."
Pardon tt:r*, I mer.r.t from a social
point of View (inly. I admit we would

And then follow,* I a scene that re-
.mlnds me to this day of some broken,
fantastic drer.m, a fragment from
sor.je bewildering nightmare.
For suddenly I saw his eyes widen
and tia.-di with anger and apprehen-
sion. Quick as a passing sun-shadow,
his hand swept the candelabrum
•from the table. He made a swift back-
ward spring toward the door, but he
was a little too late. The darkness
jhe had created was not Intense
■enough, for there was still the ruddy
glow from the logs; and the bosom
of his dress-shirt made a tine target.
(Resides, the eyes that had peered into
the window were accustomed to the
Illang! The glass of the window
shivered and jingled to the floor,
and u sharp report followed. The
rogue cried out in fierce anguish
and reeled against the wall. William
whipped out his revolver, but, even
from his favorable angle, he was not
quick enough. The hand that had di-
rected the first bullet was ready to
direct the second
All this took place within the count
of ten The girl and I sat stiffly In
our chairs, as if petrified, it waj all
so swiftly accomplished.
Urop It! said a cold, authori-
tative voice, and I saw the vague out-
lines of Haggerty's face beyond the
broken window pane.
Wiliam knew better than to
tate. His revolver struck the floor
dully, and a curse rolled from his
Hps. immerlately a heavy body pre-
cipitated itself against the door, which
crashed inward, and an officer fear-
lessly entered, a revolver In each
hand. This tableau, which lasted ful-
ly a minute, was finally disturbed by
the entrance of Haggerty himself
Don t be alarmed; Miss," he said
heartily; it's ail over I'm sorry for
the bullet, but it had to be done. The
rascal has nothing more serious than
a splintered bone I am a dead shot.
A fine night'"—triumphantly, "it's
been u long chase, and I never was
sure or the finish You're the clever-
est rogue it has been my good fortune
to meet this many a day. I don't
even know who you are yet. Well,
well' we'll round that up in time"
Not till the candles again sputtered
with ll.uht, and William was securely
handcuffed and disarmed, did | recol-
lect that I possessed the sense of mo-
tion Die smoke of powder drifted
across the flickering candles and
there was a salty taste
"Horrible!" cried the girl, covering
The master rogue and his valet
were led out Into the assemblv-room
and we reluctantly followed, l ;:aw
it all now. When Haggerty called up
central at the club, he ascertained
where the last call had been Trom,
and, learning that It «ine from Holly-
wood Inn, he took his chance. The
room was hooii filled with servants
and stable-hands, the pistol-shot hav-
ing lured them from their beds. The
wounded man was very pale. He
sat with his uninjured hand tightly
clasped above the ragged wound, and
I a little pool of blood slowly formed at
Ills side on the floor. Hut his eyes
"A basin of water and some linen!"
cried the girl to Morlarty. "And send
all these people away."
"To yer rooms, ivery one of ye!"
snapped Morlarty, sweeping his hands.
'Tis no place for ye, be off!" He
hurried the servants out of the room,
and presently returned with a basin
of water, some linen and balm.
We watched the girl as she bathed
and bandaged (he wounded artn; and
once or twice the patient smiled. Hag-
gerty looked on approvingly, and In
William s eyes there beamed the gen-
tle light of reverence. It was a pic-
ture to see this lovely creature play-
ing the part of the good Samaritan,
moving hore and there Is her exquisite
gown. Ah, the tender jpercy! I knew
that, come what might, I had strange-
ly found the right woman, the one
"You're a good little woman," said
the rogue, his face softening; "and a
good woman is the finest thing God
ever placed upon uarth. Had I only
found one!" He turned whimsically
toward me. "Are you engaged to mar-
ry this little woman?"
"Surely you love her!"
perhaps that was tt. They are n!-
ways behind good actions and oad
Once we were Seated In the lonely
car, the girl broke down and cried as
if her heart would break. It was only
the general reaction, but the sight of
her tears unnerved me.
"Don't cry, girl; don't!" I whispered,
taking her hand in mine. She made
no efTort to repulse me. "I am sorry.
The rascal was a gallant beggar, and
I for one shouldn't have been sorry to
see him get away. There, there!
You're the bravest, tenderest girl in
all tills world; and when I told him I
loved you, God knows I meant it! It
Is one of those inexplicable things.
You say I have known you only eight
hours? I have known you always,
only I had not met you. What are
eight hours? What is convention,
formality? We two have lived a life-
time in these eight hours. Can't you
see that we have?"
To shoot a human being!" she
soBbed. Her head fell against my
shoulder. I do not believe she was
conscious of the fact. And I did not
care a hang for the conductor.
I patted her hand encouragingly. "It
had to be done. He was In a des-
perate predicament, and he would
have shot Haggerty had the detective
been careless In his turn; and ho
wouldn't have atnled to malm, either."
"What a horrible night! It will
haunt me as long as I live!"
I said nothing; and we did not
speak again till the first of the Blank-
shire lights flashed by us. By thti
time her sobs had ceased.

the girl as I spoke.
But she never gave any sign that
she heard. She pinned the ends of
the bandages carefully.

"Merrily, too. My admiration is
rholly yours, sir," returned Haggerty,
picking up the telephone exchange-
book. He rang and placed his lips to
the transmitter, calling a number.
"Mello! It this the chief of the Blank-
j shire police? Yes? Well, this is Hag-

a mighty good one. Prepare two strong

My money was handed over to me.
I returned it to my wallet, but with-
out any particular enthusiasm.
"It's bad business, Wiliam," said I.
"It's all in the game, sir,"—with a
look at Haggerty that expressed in-
finite hatred. "In our business we
can't afford to be careless."
Or to talk too much," supple-
mented his master, smiling. "Talk,

The deacons of a church were dis-
cussing possible ways of ridding them-
selves of an undesirable pastor who
paid no heed to pointed suggestions
that his resignation would be accept-
able. Finally one of the deacons said:
"if we make a large reduction in
his salary it would probably have the
effect of making him resign."
"I know a surer way than that,"
said the other deacon. "Let us double
his salary and he will fall dead."

SAGE TEA AND SULPHUR
DARKENS YOUR GRAY HAIR
Look Years Younger! Try Grandma'*
Recipe of Sage and Sulphur and
Nobody Will Know.
Almost everyone knows that Sage
Tea and Sulphur properly compound-
ed, brings back the natural color and
lustre to the hair when faded, streaked-
or gray; also ends dandruff, itching
scalp and stops falling hair. Years
ago the only way to get this mixture
was to make It at home, which is
mussy and troublesome.
Nowadays we simply ask at any
drug store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sul-
phur Hair Remedy." You will get a
large bottle for about 50 cents. Every-
body uses this old, famous recipe, be-
cause no one can possibly tell that
you darkened your hair, as it does it
bo naturally and evenly. You dampen
a sponge or soft brush with It and
draw this through your hair, taking
one small strand at a time; by morn-
ing the gray hair disappears, and
after another application or two, your
hair becomes beautifully dark, thick
l nd gloBsy and you look years younger.
