"Show Mr. Regan In," said the bank
president. Regan was admitted. He
looked surprised to see I,ang.

plied the detective composedly.

"Why so?" asked the chief, and the
answer to the question gave Louis the
key to the situation.
"I am aware that Mr. Smith was
to receive a large sum of money from
this bank, and it Is my business to
keep him under my protection," was
the bold reply.
"Then you are aware of the draft
"Certainly!" was the decided an-
swer. "An order from Jim Denver on
this bank for $10,000."
"While not exactly afraid that the
rote was a forgery," said the banker,
"we thought It best to send for Mr.
"That was not necessary," replied
Regan, turning a little pale ~ as the
possibility of having got himself Into
an unnecessary scrape stared him In
the face; "I can vouch for Mr. Smith."
At one time Regan had been detailed
to service at the bank, so was well-
known by its officers. Besides this,
Denver and Regan had often been
seen In the bank together when the
former had transacted business with

• • • •
Jim Denver knew who robbed John-
son's silk store, but it was not his
pleasure to meet the robbers. He
knew the passing of the forged check
and the robbery were but links In the
chain binding three desperate men to-
gether. However, no ordinary reader
would surmise that the following had
anything to do with the preceding:
"The Chicago, Rocky Mountain &
Wahoo railway sent out another spe-
cial car of emigrants early this morn-
ing, among them fourteen women and
four men bound for the extreme
But the four incidents narrated con-
cerned the same people. On this emi-
grant train were the perpetrators of
these crimes, as were also Jim Den-
ver and several people of whom we
have very little knowledge, but who
will enter our story at a later period.
The particular car we have Inter-
est in, Is occupied, as all emigrant
trains are, by a motley assortment of
people, twenty nationalities represent-
ed sometimes; some of the men smok-
ing, others drinking, others eating,
yet a few walking up and down the
aisles stretching their weary limbs,
while some were grouped conversing.
The group to which we call particular
attention to, occupies one half of one
side of a car—the fourteen women
and four men mentioned above.
The women of the Golden party
formed a motley group. There were
six large, strapping German women,
new arrivals In this country, who had
hired themselves out as farm domes-
tics to, as they thought, as many dif-
ferent farmers. Unknown to them-
selves they were placing themselves

"Refuse!" hissed the man.
Refuse, and I brand you to the world for what
circumstances of the In the power of the secret society
case now, we will pay It."
Both Regan and Lang breathed
easier. Regan was a designing, if not
a hold rascal. His assistance to l^ng
was not given of his own accord. In
describing Lang to Golden, It was nec-
essary to tell about Louis' scheme for
"raising" the $10,000 and Golden had
placed Regan on watch/ to guard
against failure, and possible treach-
ery on Louis' part. Knowing that
Louis' failure would mean his own
with Golden, Regan had been forced
to extend a helping hand.
Without more ado the bills were
counted out and handed to Lang.
"I will give you . second to get a
little ahead of me, Mr. Smith," said
Regan, motioning to Louis to take his
leave. "And I will follow behind you."

dent thought of placing a "shadow"

We will skip over the evfnts of the

evening papers the following day. First
there was a column and a half about I
represented by Golden.
Besides these innocent victims
there are eight women of unsavory
reputation who have deliberately sold
themselves In marrnage to as many
unknown male outcasts of society. A
hardened and depraved lot, yet inno-

made up the gan'; who were on their
way to the convicts' stronghold.

"You have made my life a hell! I

These words were spoken by Dr.
Herman Schiller to Dr. James Hunt-
ington. Dr. Huntington had been the
tlonal description because the perpe-
trators-. of the crime were known. The
life history of Lang and Regan was
given, filled with abuse against Regan
especially. The account ended up
with the usual stereotyped expression:
"The police hope to rapture the pair
and are already on the trail, among
them Denver himself. Although the
villains have fully twenty-four hours'
start there can be no reasonable ex-
cuse for the police to let them slip
through their fingers," etc. -But they
It was never Denver's Intention to
have this robbery get Into the papers.
His Idea was to honor the disputed
draft, when returned to him In the
regular routine of business. But be-
ing discovered, and having the check
prematurely thrust on him hfe was
forced to refute it for fear of spoiling
his game, so It was given to the pub-
lic. and sometime afterward Denver
quietly reimbursed the Institution.
The same paper had another notice
to this effect; "It Ig only known to a
few that Simeon Golden, convicted of
murder, succeeded ln making his es-
cape from Jollet—the second escape
only In the history of this institution.
It is almost a certainty that b.e Is in
Chicago, or has been within the past
few hours. It Is to he deplored that

"A Detective Robbed." A most setisa- Instrument of proving to twelve up
' v - r|ght and conscientious gentlemen sit-
ting as a Jury that Dr. Schiller had
been guilty of a criminal practice
which resulted In the death of a wom-
an patient. For this crime Dr. Schil-
ler had been sentenced to ten years
of prison life. It was after this sen-
tence had been pronounced against
him that Schiller had made the above-
Dr. Huntington was the youngest of
three sons of Sir Karhu Huntington,
and consequently without reasonable
hope of ever succeeding to his father's
estate and title. Two brothers stood
ln his light by birthright and would
inherit at their majority, or death of
their father, large shares of property.
But James, looked upon asran Incum-
brance, the unnecessary addition to
an already large family, was given a
pittance and sent adrift. Two things
stared him in the face, the army or a
profession. He chose the latter, and
after graduating from one of the most
prominent medical colleges In old
England, crossed the ocean and set-
tled down to practice in a little coun-
try town In Ohio. He was of too
sound timber to be kept down. The
fair goddess of Fortune smiled on
him, he became great as a man, the
highest title mankind can bestow on
man. He was twenty-flve years of
age wh " he arrived in this country;
One evening while standing before
the only drug store in the village
smoking a cigar, our doctor was rec-
ognized by ah ex-convlct. An organ-
ized band of robbers had committed
depredations to such an alarming ex-
tent In the neighborhood, that a vigil
ance committee had been organized to
preserve the peace and protect the vll
lage from devastation. The robbers
had been fired upon by the regulators
and one of the bandits had been
wounded. It was to obtain medical
aid that Pearson came to town.

quest your attendance upon a sick

rade, who is he?" he asked In an agl-
"Well, you see he Is one of the

"And you ask me to attend him?"
"Who else, my dear doctor?" was
the satisfied reply.
"I refuse!" exclaimed the doctor,
hoping that he could bluff the man-
that he had not been recognized.
"Refuse!" hissed the man. "refuse,
and I brand you to the world for what
you are, a man who has 'done
The doctor bowed his head In
shame. The bolt from a clear sky
took every grain of fight from him.
"What guarantee have I, if I plaeo
myself in your power, that you will
not expose me?"
"Oh, you will be leit free, with your
'spotless reputation' unsullied with the
taint ot crime, if you do your part,
which Is to save the life of the wound-
ed man. Besides, you will be re-
warded with money."
It was not a hard matter to per-
suade Dr. Schiller to agree to do the
work. Deeming himself helpless, he
put as gracious a face on the matter
as possible. "I accept," he said.
"I thought you would, my dear doc-
tor. when you came to your senses,"
said Pearson. According to instruc-
tions, the doctor dressed for his Jour-
ney; taking his Instrument case, he
was assisted to a seat In a farmer's
wagon already occupied by a driver
and a man by the name of Kyrae.
The doctor was using his eyes, as
he thought, to good advantage. But
Pearson and Kyme were too old birds
to be caught in such a trap. Before
the team entered a forest through
which they had to drive, Kyme said
to his companion: '"Addent we bet-
ter bind the hies of 'is nibs?"
"It will be as well," replied Pearson,
taking his neckcloth trom his neck.
"We will have to bind you, Doc."
"Why this precaution?" asked the
doctor. "You are not afraid that 1
will give away your haunts, are you?"

President Roosevelt and Labor Lead-
ers Confer on Chinese Question
OYSTER BAY, N. Y.: Immigra-
tion to the United States and Its re-
lations to the labor problem formed
the subject of a conference between
the president aful two of the Impor-
tant leaders ot organized labor-
Samuel Gompers of Washington and
James Duncan of Quiney, Mass., re-
spectively the president and one of
the vice presidents of the American
Federation of Labor.
The conference was devoted par
tlcularly to the consideration of an
order recently Issued *>y the president
regarding the enforci ment of the
Chinese exclusion law. An impres
slon had been gained by many mem-
bers of labor organizations that the
order, to an extent, at least, let down
the immigration bars as far as the
Chinese are concerned.
The president assured his' callers,
however, that no such construction
could be placed on the oixler, and
that he was just as vigorously opposed
to the admission to this country of
Chinese coolies as they could be. Mr.
Gompers urged upon the president
the desirability of an Intelligent, prac-
tical and humane consideration of the
general question of Immigration by
the people and by congress. The
people of this country and the whole
civilized world are entitled, he main-
tained to such a consideration of the
Enamel Finish Shelves
An excellent idea for pantry shelves
Is to give them two coats of ordinary
white paint, and then a third finish-
j ing coat of white enamel. As soon
as the enamel dries, wash it over
with cold water, and then it will bard-
llo not cover these shelves with oil-
cloth or paper, but leave them bars
and notice the improvement. As
there are nn covcrs under which
crumbs, etc., can collect, there Is
nothing to encourage mice, and the
enamel Is easily w?ped clean with a
damp cloth. With enamel shelves it
Is never necessary to clean out tho

IS ABSOLUTELY PURE
NATURE'S OWN RESTORATIVES
IN FAVORITE PRESCRIPTION.
Dr. Pierce Announces the Ingredients
of the Family Medicines Which
Have Made Hi* Name a Household
Word in the World.
With ail the recent talk about patent
medicines and the determined effort in
certain quarters to cast discredit upon
all household remedies which come un-
der that head, the fact remains that
some of these medicines are so firmly
established in popular favor and con-
fidence, have so proved their worth
and value, that all the denunciations
of bigots cannot destroy the people's
faith in them.
One of the best known of these rem-
edies Is Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip-
tion, a medicine which for years has
been accepted by the people as a stan-
dard preparation for tho cure of those
ailments to which women alone are
subject and which has proved to be a
certain cure In nine cases out of ten
and a sure relief In the other one.
Thero Is nothing to conceal about
the Favorite Prescription. It Is an ab-
solutely pure medicine—made of roots
and herbs, Nature's own restoratives.
Dr. Pierce is perfectly willing to let
every one know that his Favorite Pre-
scription contains Blue Cohosh (Caulo-
phyllum Thalictroldes), Black Cohosh
(Cimielfuga Racemosa), Lady's Slip-
per (Cypripedlum Pubescens) and
Golden Seal (Hydrastis Canadensis).
Every doctor knows that such a pre-
emption is beneficial in the diseases
of women and when properly com-
pounded Is certain to effect a cure in
practically all cases when given a fair
trial. Hereafter every bottle of the
Favorite Prescription will plainly tell
of what the medicine is composed.
Thus Dr. Pierce will once more prove
to the world bis own confidence ln the
remedy which for forty years has
borne Ills name and which is known all
o^er the world as a sovereign cure for
