More Itching Scalp.
Within ten minutes after an appll
cation of Danderine you cannot find i
single trace of dandruff or falling hall
and your scalp will not itch, but what |
will please you most will be after ■
few weeks' use, when you see new
hair, fine and downy at flrBt—yes—but
really new hair—growing all over th«
A little Danderine immediately dot*
foles the beauty of your hair. No dlf- I
ference how dull, faded, brittle and
scraggy, just moisten a cloth with
Danderino and carefully draw it I
through your hair, taking one small j
strand at a time. The effect is amaz- j
lng— your hair will b6 light, fluffy and
wavy, and have an appearance of
abundance; an incomparable luster,
softness and luxuriance.
Get a 25 cent bottle of Knowlton's
Danderine from any store, and prove
that your hair Is as pretty and soft
as any—that it has been neglected or
Injured by careless treatment—that's
all—you surely can have beautiful hair
and lots of it if you will just try a lit-

Makes Hard Work Harder
A bad back makes a day's work
twice as hard. Backache usually
comes from weak kidneys, and if
headaches, dizziness or urinary dis-
orders aro added, don't wait—get
help before the kidney disease
takes a grip—before dropsy, gravel
or Bright's disease sets in. Doan's

and new strength to thousands of
working men and women. Used

He reviewed the facts of the case
methodically, with his eyes directed
toward the sharp clear stars of this
October night. The man had thou-
sands in the banks, unlimited credit,
was without kith or kin; was rarely
seen in the restaurants over on Broad-
way, and never with a woman. His
cook and valet had been with him for
ten years and had accompanied him
on his travels. He lived comfortably,
not luxuriously. He was a fine chess
player and was lucky at bridge and
poker, but never gambled in stocks or
public places. He was thirty-nine
years old, in good health. What would
draw a man toward playing at safe-
breaking if not a latent criminal in-
stinct? On the other hand, this pas-
time was known to several of his
banker friends, who sometimes made
wageis with him. Well, well; his
right or left thumb would presently
settle the whole matter, one way or
A taxicab came chugging into the
street, stopped for a moment before
the brick house, and went on. Hag-
gerty Jotted down the license number
as he trotted across. He reached the
top step just as the man with the
bundle under his arm opened the
"Walt a moment." said Haggerty.
The man turned.
"Are you Mr. Crawford?"—for it
was too dark for Haggerty to distin-
guish the man's features.
"No, sir. Mr. Crawford Is out for
"When will he be back?"
"1 can't say, sir. Possibly at mid-
night; probably later."
"Does he go aboard the Celtic to-
night or tomorrow at dawn?"
The man with the bundle under his
arm withdrew the night-key and calm-
ly thrust the key-ring into his pocket.
He shifted the bundle slightly.
"Ib your business important?" The
voice was well modulated, but it pos-
sessed a crlspness which spoke of im-
"Sorry you will not be able to see
him tonight, sir."
"I'm in no hurry. I'll wait till he
comes. I take It you're his valet."
"Yes, sir; Mr. Mason. But I doubt I
can let you in under the circum-
stances. If you will designate a place
I will telephone you the moment he
"That's reasonable enough; but I'm
going inside to wait."
"Why, sir . . .!"
"I'm a detective, Mr. Mason; an'
your master an' I have a little matter
"An' he wouldn't be pleased at all
if he knew I'd been here an' had t'
"Oh! He expects you?"
"Yes." Which was truthful enough,
since all criminals expect the law soon-
er or later.
"This." Haggerty exhibited Ills
"That's not sufficient, sir."
"All right," replied Haggerty
grimly. "Suppose we both go over
to th precinct an' have 'em identify
me there? They know me."
"I suppose I'll have to let you In,
sir; but it's all very queer and unusu-
al. Follow me."
The valet turned on the single light
in the hall. He immediacy began to
mount the stairs to the first floor,
Haggerty at his heels. The valet
stumbled, and the bundle slipped from
his arm. The wrapping paper broke,
detached from all affairs that did not
concern his master personally, and
who considered it ill-brwl to conversa
with strangers of Haggerty's caliber.
It wa3 a lean serious face; the hand
which propped his chin wa~ long and
It was half after eleven by Hagger-
ty's watch. An hour, probably, to
wait. There they were, four of them,
and the one with the door hanging
loosely a new one; four safes of vari-
ous makes and sizes. What was the
"May I ask what it is you wish to
see Mr. Crawford about?" asked the
valet, after a long pause.
Ha! thought Haggerty; he was hu-
man after all. "Oh, he's going t' give
me something for my collection." Hag-
gerty chuckled. "But what's all these

"Ah! What's he do with them?"
"Sends them to the various univer-
sities and societies."
"No, no; I mean th' safes."
"He opens them. Do you know any-
thing about the French revolution?"
"I've heard about it," answered Hag-
"Well, when Louis XVI wasn't tink-
ering with the revolution, he was tink-
ering with locks and clocks. It
amused him; took his mind off his
cares and troubles. Mr. Crawford finds
like amusement in buying up old safes
and opening them; cracking them, 1
believe, is the vernacular. He is ro-
markably clever at it."
"Well, whata you know about that!"
"I mean, that kind of amusement
beats me. Buys safes an' cracks 'em
for th' fun of th' thing! Well, 1
Haggerty slipped a cigar between
his teeth and began to chew it.
"Smoke if you wish."
Everything open and above board;
no mystery, no secrecy. A joke, it
cculd not be anything else but a Joke,
a wager. But why all these months
of waiting to spring it? Haggerty's j
troubled gaze went round the room, I
touched the valet's face again, and |
finally paused at the shoes. Twelve I
of them, broad-toed, comfortable, new- )
ly-soled and heeled. They looked very
funny to Haggerty, marshaled as they
were alongside a mummy perhaps
three thousand years old.
"What is, sir?"
"Toting round ol' shoes like that."
No Time to Spare.
"Now that the football season is
over and it's rather too early for base-
ball, I guess our boy at college will be

duties have been sadly neglected."

and disclosed half a dozen pairs of
old shoes. Haggerty picked up two
pairs and the valet gathered up the
others. He gravely led the detective
into a large room. Haggerty grasped I
his revolver, then let go of it, grunt-
ing inaudibly. What he saw in the |
dim firelight were not living people, |
only the shells: rows of mummies and |
mummy-cases called cartonnages.
"Better not turn on the lights." said
Haggerty. "Th' fire's enough. These
things give a fellow the chills."
The valet deposited the shoes along
the wall and Haggerty placed his be-
side them. Next, the valet crossed to
the wood-box and threw on a log. A
blaze started up.
"Sit down, sir. This is Mr. Craw-
ford's study." Haggerty was quite
familiar with it, but only in the day-
time. "You'll excuse me, sir. till I

"You can pack th' shoes when your

or not, would be perfectly justified in
warning his master of his, Haggerty's,
presence. Then genially, to cover the
menace of hiB words, he added;
