occasion which Is not likely My own evidence I fear will not aid you very materially for although of course I tool sure that the gold piece that you showed me closely resembled the one which you dropped on the floor of the alcove I know it only because you yourself have told mo so I only glanced at It casually and cannot nowIrecall a single one of its salient tunes except that It had a head I1nd Inscriptions with which I was and am wholly unfamiliar This would weIgh very little against the positive Identlfl cation of the piece taken from you pocket by the librarian But perhaps Miss Etherldge examined it more cart fullyShe did he exclaimed We look ed at it together and I explained the inscription to her She could describe it 1 feel sure and then what will be come of the

Jack stared at me Why whom Bbould I want but you he asked You personally know the facts and who else would take so deep an Interest in vindicating mj innocence Dear old boy I replied nothing will ever happen that can weaken our friendship I merely want to be of the utmost possible service to you The only question is How can I accomplish that If I had only scrutinized that unlucky gold coin more closely probably I could do you much good as fa witness and you know an advocateIshould never be a witness for client except as to some mere technl cal matter of form However as it Is I dont think I could do you any good on the stand and if you really prefer me to an experienced attorney In crlm road cases I shall certainly do all thai I can Then thats settled he said and as to experience I havent the slight est fear on that score And Graham dont ask for delay My acquittal Is as certain as my breath and I want this incubus lifted as soon as possible Ant now as I didnt sleep a wink last night I believe Ill go and try to have a nap Door fellow I I wanted to tell him that he hUll formed no conception ol the consummate skill with which a prosecuting attorney can weave a net of inculpatory circumstances around Innocent men Nor did he know any thing of the whimsicalities of the aver age petit jury But I had not the heart to disturb his confidence CHAPTER III The dny of the trial at length ar rived and by that time I had argued myself into a belief In my friends tri umph scarcely second to his own Moreover I may own It nowI felt that his acquittal would savor of a personal triumph for myself One of the most skillful criminal practitioners at the bar was pitted against me and if 1 won 3 Ali well now I am ap proaching the sunset of life when the buff changes to crimson the purple to amethyst and the violet to ruby yet even the withered leaf of autumn was once green and full of sap and I then cherished a confidence In my own success which has been rudely shaken by the multiform vicissitudes of years The district attorney opened with the usual disavowal of malice on the part either of the state or of himself and the customary protestation that he was actuated only by a stern unflinching sense of public duty My experience of later years has led me to question whether the state prosecutor does not six tittles out of ten feel as much per sonal pride In securing a conviction as does the attorney for the criminal In obtaining his clients release When he outlined with the utmost perspicacity what he proposed to prove and after seemingly sincere appeal to the Jury to put aside bitterness malice and all nhcharltablcness he summoned his first witness Mr Pope The latter described his relation to the library the building itself and its contents the counsel for the state dwelling particularly upon its ex tremely valuable collection of rare coins Being shown a gold coin and asked if he could Identify it the wit ness unhesitatingly pronounced it a noble of the reign of the third Ed ward In response to further question ing he said that it was the property of the library as to that ho could not be mistaken and narrated all the cir cumstances connected with its sup posed loss and alleged discovery as far as they had fallen under his personal observation I made him repeat his story in detail on cross examination but he varied not a hairs breadth Asked an to his previously formed estimate of the prisoners character he replied freely and without reserve and with an evident emotion which was apparently not without influence upon some of the jurymen that no had always heard him mentioned with respect and that prior to the date in question ho bad himself held him in the highest esteem Then Oolson the assistant detailed v By WALTER B

them the unsuccessful search for the same and the circum stances attending the arrest On cross examination his answers were frank and he too appeared rather to lean to the side of the defense Yes he had known Mr Scarborough although only as an habitue of the library and by name for several years Ho had always regarded the prisoner as a gen tleman He Scarborough had repeat edly examined trays of valuable coins In the same alcove and none had been missed before that date When he had been asked to aid In looking for the missing gold piece ho had felt no sus picion Ho had summoned the police man because everything looked so strange and besides It was his duty to do so under the rules Had he been in the alcove In question within the next few days No ho had been transfer red to the other side of the building and had been employed there until a week ago when he had resigned his position partly on account of a weak back and partly to assist his wife in the management of a boarding house formerly kept by her mother who had recently died The next witness called by the dis trict attorney was a small eyed beetle browed dirt begrimed man who said his namo was Raphael Swzoni He was employed as a sweeper clean er and sort of general utility man in the library On the second day after the disappearance of the gold piece he hud swept the alcove as a matter of ordinary routine work The states representative produced from his pock et n small packet which he carefully opened and laid before the witness Asked If he could say what it contained the beetle browed man replied that he recognized the contents as being particles of yellow metal which be had found on taking up a breadth of the matting In the alcove In question to be shaken Of his own knowl edge he could not May of what metalI the particles were I thought that I here perceived an opportunity for if I could locate the lIllngH in a phice remote from the table at which the accused laid been milking hid examination they might have been dropived by some previous or subsequent visitor But when I questioned him the witness asserted that he wets In the habit of taking up the breadths Indiscriminately and could say nothing as to which one hud af forded so rich a find He hud shak en the matting under general orders beIcnuseI toothIpickswhich the management was anxious tI to discover and return He had no animus

irco flow out much hesitation I had determines that the best effect upon the jury might be obtained by making the ac cused his own first witness Jack told his story with absolute frankness Not the tremor of a mus cle betrayed the Intense nervous strain under which he was suffering nil eye was steady and unflinching his voice clear and unshaken as he described each link In the chain of events from the day when he first obtained possession of the reliquary until the hour of his arrest Nor was his nar native shaken under one of the most searching cross examinations to which I have ever listened Manifestly the effect upon the Jury was good and 1I- I began to cherish reneWed confidence Then the plowman told his story of his discovery of antique coins while turning the furrows on an English farm In Staffordshire how he had sold a few given away others and brought the rest to this country and finally how he had parted with the last re manning gold piece to tlje prisoner al a price agreed upon between them The man was old and evidently new ous under the strain of his first expert ence In a court of justice yet under my careful handling he proved a fair ly good witness and I Indulged In a mild Inward chuckle when I turned him over to the district attorney for cross examination That officer made it his business at the outset to quicken all the apprehen Blous which I had allayed and to arouse a personal antagonism toward himself The simple old farm hand was very Ignorant and this fact was made patent to the Jury In a way admirably calculated to cast discredit upon his testimony Finally the cross examiner executed his coup Taking from the table a gold coin of about the same size as the one on the ownership of which the entire case hinged he handed It to the witnoes with the question put in tones so rasping that they might have harried a saint Did you ever see that piece before 1 In course was the prompt reply Its the one Isold to Mr Scarborough thereTake a close look at It my man said the attorney You may be ruts takenNo said the witness whose na- tIve obstinacy had been adroitly stim ulated to the highest pitch by tho shrewd tactics of the attorney for tho prosecution It aint likely I could be mistaken about a thing I know as well as I knows that and I beant Thats the very plea And he grinned triumphantly as though he had scored a strong point Your honor said the district attor ney turning to the court I assure you upon my professional word that the coin which this witness has Just now so positively identified as the one which be sold to the prisoner Is not a noble of the reign of Edward III but a rial of the time of James I And this I am prepared to prove Hero was metaphorically speaking another blow between the eyes At my request my opponent handed me both CQlns and I compared them care fully They were totally dissimilar So far as proving Jacks ownership of a duplicate of the library noble and bow the same came Into his possession were concerned our case thus far was a failure unless the Jury believed the comparatively unsupported testimony sfthe accused WMM motives for per I jury might be tnaao to appear self evident In vain did I try upon the redirect examination to lead the pigheaded and now thoroughly frightened countryman to select tho right coin from the two shown him Ills feeble brain seemed temporarily unbalanced by vague visions of unknown pain and penalties which might be visited upon him It ho failed to adhere to his origi nal statement And no tact no adroit ness of which I at least was master could Induce him to correct his fatal blunderMiss Etherldge was agitated at the beginning of her first ordeal on the witness stand but gained confidence as she proceeded with her story The prisoner had called upon her here she blushed and slightly faltered on the evening of his return from what he had said had been his summer vacation He had shown her a gold coin which he said he had purchased from a plow man In Massachusetts Upon being shown the piece Identified by Mr Pope she unhesitatingly and unequivocally pronounced It the one shown her by the prisoner Knowing that she did not share ei ther the knowledge or the enthusiasm of her lover In respect of numismatics I pressed my questions no further The attorney for the state however prov ed pitiless With all the suavity of a polished clubman he offered her the genuine noble Could she read the Inscription No How had she been able to so thoroughly describe It on her direct examination The prisoner had read It to her and she had recollected The other coin was shown her Could sUe read that Inscription She could not Could she as a matter within her own personal knowledge distinguish between the two coins The large brown eyes were suffused as she an swered In the negaJJve But the dis trict attorney was resolved to press his advantage before the Jury One more question Miss EtherIdge Is there a promise of marriage be tween you and the prisoner Slowly the magnificent orbs rose from the floor on which they had been fixed and for a fraction of a moment the answer was delayed But when lit there n promiss of intirrlaQC between you tied the prisoner It came there was no quaver in the girls voice self assertion rather than defiance was in her tone as she looked her tormentor full in the face and answered I andImake me break that vow 1 looked at her Marble could not be whiter nor an aspen leaf more tremulous Yet when I rose to examine her upon what is technically known as the redirect I felt a mad hand pluck ing at my sleeve and a hoarse voice whispering In my ear For the love of pity cant you see how she is suffering Not another question to her if I hang That settled it The case was practi cally ended and I knew only too well that there could be but one verdict My friend was doomed After the Jury had retired for de liberation I thought it my duty to prepare him for the worst since I knew that the worst was inevitable He was sitting with his elbow resting on the arm of his chair his face covered with his hand I touched his shoul derJack old friendl In an instant he raised a pair of bloodshot eyes and

Early one morning he was kidnaped His captors threatened violence unless they received 10000 Immediately The millionaire thought Then after hesi tation for a few minutes he offered to write out a

signature difficulty In a different way altogether lIe protects himself by never giving an uncrossed check and this fact has duly been notified to the bank Each day his bank pass book is ex amined by his private secretary and if there is an entry in the book which has no business there then the matter can be looked Into at once Of course If the bankers pass a forged check then generally speaking they must bear the loss themselves This system has many disadvun tages It means that the man must never allow his check book out of his possession and must place unreserved confidence in his secretary and his staff The private secretary supplies his employer with any cash required re ceiving in exchange a duly crossed check for the amount It is tho private secretary therefore who has to protect his signature from forgery and thlr he does in a very Ingenious way He has had a copy of his signature cut out of cork This he uses as he woult an India rubber stamp and he claims that It Is us impossible

either case I dont see how I can successfully resist I have gone over all the evidence In my mind and I have not a word of censure for the jury If I didnt positively know that I was innocent I believe

about to faintMr Graham have you seem Mr ScarboroughYes this morning How Is he feeling Worried of course but bearing up like the bravo noble fellow he always wasWhen will they take him toaway Poor

She says that it must be all over between Jack and me that I shall not marry aaoh how can I say taconvicted felon Her face was white and tearless and I thought I could read there a spirit that It would be hard to break and a soul that would remain steadfast until deathMiss Etheridge I said If your aunt carries you to Europe on Satur days steamer your only hope of seeing Jack before sailing is to visit him at the Wombs It will be Impossible un der any circumstances to secure his liberation between now and then- I expected to see at least a shudder I thought that I might have to convey Jacks

young life I am no conspirator she said gen tly and you are Jacks dearest man friend I trust you Implicitly And with this reassuring statement she left meWhy was It that the room seemed so vacant after she had gone Why did I sit for an indefinite period gazing Into nothingness Why did the faint lingering reminiscence of the odor which she had brought Into my officei seem like Incense I sat at my desk until daylight faded Into dusk and dark deepened Into nfght before I fully realized that It was time for me to leave A walk even In the close atmosphere of a sultry autumn evening was attractive and I resolved to pat ronize no conveyance I found Wash ington square almost deserted and sat down on a bench to rest A fog was forming and from the damp grass a sort of diaphanous brocade of violet and silver was beginning to rise float ing dreamily hither and yon like ghosts In flowing garments Yet above thei blue arch was resplendent with stars Fleecy clouds chased one another across the face of the moon sharing while they refracted Its brilliance Andi as I sat and gazed and wondered at the power and glory revealed therei came Into my soul a peace even as I remembered that after all the moon shines with but a reflected light Next morning Miss Ethcrldge paidi her visit to the Tombs with me as her attendant squire It was necessarily unsatisfactory yet after It was over I found that It had comforted Jack amazingly Yet he was still obdurately I determined to go to prison willy nllly And so within ten days I had the grief to shake hands with him at the Fortysecond street station as hei sat In a smoker bound for Sing Slug handcuffed to a dudishly dressed man who I ascertained had been sentenced to a long term for squandering the for tune of his orphan niece the only child of his brotherwho had committed her to him on his deathbed For several weeks thereafter I found It difficult to perform even routine du ties The prison rules prohibited com munlcatlon with Scarborough for a month to conic I had undertaken to become a channel of communication more or less subterranean between Jack and his betrothed but had heard nothing from Miss Etheridge The en forced Inactivity was becoming un endurable Over and over again 1 asked myself what can I do to help him Over and over I read again the minutes of the trial In the vain hope of discovering some loophole through which his Innocence might be made to appear At length not with any ex pectation of accomplishing any tangi ble result but simply to relieve my mental tension by making myself be lieve that I was doing something I determined to consult Inspector Ma honeyThe Inspector was at the head of the detective force and highly esteemed alike for his sagacity and his probity While he had never been suspected of acumen such as Dr Doyle ascribed to Sherlock Holmes It was said of him that his perceptive powers were ex traordlrtarlly acute and that In man a perplexing case he had been able to designate the criminal upon having n bare recital of the facts He Ilsteneu to my story with every appearance of Interest putting a ques tion now nUll then In reference ti what he seemed to regard as salient points When I had finished he look ed thoughtful for a few moments and then said I should lay that the strongest point against your friend If the finding of the gold filings on the floor of the alcove In which the cola disappeared Taken In connection with the other evidence brought for ward by the prosecution that circumstance would convince any jury In the absence of any stronger defense than you were able to put up I admitted that he was correct It not only would have convinced a jury It bad done so 4 Very well then went on the In spector find the man who put those filings where they would be so con getonother words find the man who manu factured this damaging bltot evi dence and you have found the thief I was Indignant at myself that this simple Idea had never occurred to me I had formed the theory that the find lug of the gold dust had been one of those unaccountable coincidences which so often present themselves for no oth er apparent reason than to baffle the Intellect and pervert justice anyIas identity thief The Inspector laughed That iai a plump straightforward question said ho and I will answer It by another What is your theory as to the dlsapI pearance of the coin On your judg anent who besides your friend had any thane of making away with it between the time he took it from tho tray and the moment when he was turned over to the officer after further search had been abandoned Only one inference could be drawn and while he had not given a direct answer to my question his meaning was plain Do you mean to say I queried Kthat Golson I mean to say nothing was his somewhat curt response Why did God give you a brain if not to aid you hi drawing ti conclusion- It r seemed alll clear enough then Continued next week BRIEF DISPATCHES
