HE ARRESTS A
fnilpptnan Barney Flynn was on re-
fcTve duty when the captain sent for
li'ra. The policeman slghm! knocked
t m nshea from hl pipe into A cuspi-
dor put the pipe away and laboriously
rose from his chair.
'Some felly's been makln' Uiroublo
f'r hlmsllf" he said "an fr me. Tla
a sha-nme that he sh'u'd ho so lackln
ID 8inse as to shpoll a po-llstnan's
r-rest bo commlttln' a cr-rlme."
Ho found a woll-dressod prosperous
looking man closeted With the cap-
tain and the latter lost no time In ox-
plaining the nature of the btislnoss In
"Flynn." .ho said "this Is Mr. Bax-
ter whose confidential clerk default-
ed a few weeks ago and has been In
hiding ever since the shortage was
discovered. You romombor the case
of course. "Well. Mr. Baxter has lust
received reliable information that tho
man secretly returned to his home
last night and Is there now. Here's
warrant for his nrrest and 1 don't
want you to come back without him.
Mr. Baxter will go with you to Identi-
Policeman Flynn took the warrant
and turned to Mr. Baxter.
"A despicable crime" coramen'O'l
the lattor bitterly. "He had been
with me for years and I always had
been his friend. I trusted him im-
plicitly." "F'r sure" Bald Policeman Flynn
but without any enthusiasm Then
ih he picked up a pair of handcuffs
he added: " "Pis host to take th'
hracellts along fr they ma-ay bo
A carriage was waiting and aa
Flynn and Mr. Baxter rolled along
the lattor voiced bis Indignation.
"Yon can't trust anybody these
days." he asserted. "The young men
are utterly unreliable. They all want
to live beyond their moan. and In
order to do It they naturally have to
use another man's money. It's the
cge of high living and consequent de-
falcations." "Mebbo 'tis so." assented Policeman
Flynn "but thore do be la-ads I've
thought wan honest."
"Honest when there's nothing they
can steal" grumbled Mr. Baxter.
"Why. I taught this young fellow all
that he knows about business I gave
him his training and you'd think
that gratitude alone would make him
faithful to me."
"Suro ye w'u'd." admlttod Police-
man Flynn. " Tls a line thing is
gratlchuda whin yo don't ha-ave f'r
to feed a fam'ly on It."
Mr. Baxter's Indignation did not
permit him to note the sentiment un-
derlying this remark.
"I have advanced him steadily" ho
went on "and with Increased responsi-
bilities I have given him' more money
until at tho time he stole from me
he was receiving $800 a year and I
intended to make it $850 next year."
"Eight hundrod dollars a year" re-
peated Policeman Flynn reflectively
"an' iv coorse ye thruatod him with
"Certainly. He's had as much as
$15000 or $0000 in cash in his keen-
ing frequently and practically all tho
money that came in or was paid out
passed through his hands. Why he
began with me as an ofllce boy and I
had absolute confidence In him. I
liked him too. f gave him $25 for
a wedding present when he was mar-
ried threo years ago."
"An' ye give him $S00 a your." said
Policeman Flynn again as he thought-

"Don't do that!" exclalmod Mr Bax-
ter irritably. "It annoys me "
"Ye'ro not th' only wan that's made
nervous be th' clink iv thlm things"
Tetortad the policeman in a tone that
made Mr. Baxter straighten up sud-
denly and inquire sharply what he
"Nlver a thing" answered Flynn
conclllatorlly. "I wasn't thlnkiu' It

an' mofct like 'tis wan Iv th' fa-able
kind that has no thruth in thlm but

At first Mr. Baxter was inclined to
protest but he thought better of it.
There was still some distance to go
and the story njlght prove amusing
'while bis thoughts were not.
"Ye see" said Policeman Flynn
"there was a hungry 1-ad come to th'
door lv a bouse an' asked f'r a blto

of his preoccupation.

sudden dignity. "Are you so far for-

man Flynn meekly. "'TIs not f'r

Mr. Baxter looked at him sharply
and then turned away. Flynn's words
and manner annoyed him but tho of-
fense commlttod. If any was intan-
gible and nothing was to bo gainod
by engaging in a dispute. So ho
looked at 'he buildings they were
panning and kept sliont until Flynn
nervously Jangled the handcuffs again
when 4ie again protested irritably.
"'TIs onlntlntlonal" apologised Po-
Hcoman Flynn. "Thero do bo times
whin I r-reaoh f'r thlm sort lv nat'ral-
like." Tho fugitive was found In the Ilt-
tlo flat he had occupied wlthhis wife
and child but the nrrest was not
made without trouble. The policoraan
on the boat was stationed at tho roar
entrance to prevent oscapo that way
but It proved to be an unnecessary
precaution. The man saw them tho
moment the door was opened and
made a rush for the rear; but Flynn
was too quick for him. Brushing past
the woman who opened the door he
was on the fugitive's back before the
latter had taken half a dozen steps.
They went to the floor together while
the woman screamed and then began
to pommel and scratch Flynn In a
trice however ho bad tho handcuffs
on his prisoner and as they rose the
woman retreated a little although her
eyes still flashed defiance and anger.
During the struggle Mr. Baxter had
stood in the doorway trembling with
excitement and anxiety lest the man
should escape Now be cried oxult-
Ingly: "You've got him! You've got
him! That's the man!"
"Now that you nave him" said the
woman bitterly "1 suppose you will
take me too. '
"She Interfered with you" suggest-
ed Mr. Baxter who felt that both his
feelings and the majesty of the law
bad been ruthlessly trampled upon
"Look at your face."
Policeman Fljrnu drew bis baud
across his faee which was badly
scratched and then wiped the blood
away with bis handkerchief. Ignor-
ing the employer he turned to the
wife of the former employe and
asked: "F'r why sh'u'd I arrlst ye?
F'r became yo thrjed f r tp help ye-er
nla-an? I'm sorry f'r ye and' I'm
pr-roud It ye"
She looked surprised; then as
Flynn turned to leave with bis prison-
er she began to weep. He looked at
her at the modestly furnished flat at
the man who had caused the nvrast
shook Iris bead solemnly and marched
bis man down stairs.
"I'll not ride hack with you." an-
nounced Mr. Baxter when the street
"'TIs betther so." said Policeman
Flynn In a tone that made the other
flush although It gave no rhance for
The r)de waa made In sllenee un-
til the station was almost reached.
Then the prisoner remarked: "Some
men would have taken ray wife along."
"Mebbo so" admitted Polleeman
Flynn "but. ye see I cVda't help

to me f'r tho woi rk I was doln'."
When his prisoner was snfoly locked
up Flynn retired to the squad-room
and tor a long time remained burled
til thought after whleh ho treated
some of his brother officer to this
