That an animal so nearly naked of

his gastronomic feats, as she may well
have ben. L'pon one occasion, she
says, he, "put a whole orange, rind and
all Into his mouth and then managed
to thrust as many pieces of sugar as
possible into his cheeks. This achiev
ed, he began to scrunch It all up with
his lips tightly closed In the midst
of this operation he swallowed down
two liquor glasses of Klrsch and a few
minutes later opened his mouth wide.
It was empty! No one made any at

"Exactly," said Peace, blandly.
"And now, as regards the place In
which the robbery was committed."

"I must go to Portland place. What

"I will drive you there with all the

the colonel, cheerfully. "Come along."
I left them at the foot of the stairs,
obtaining a whispered promise from
the detective that he would give me
call that night If It was not too late
when he returned.
I spent a disconsolate evening at
the club. Never did I play a more de
graded hand at bridge, though
should certainly have taken exception
to the remarks of my partner under
more ordinary circumstances. There
' Is a point at which fair criticism ends
and deliberate Insult begins.
By ten o'clock I was back again In
my rooms, where I loitered, amongst
my books and pictures. In restless ex
pectation. It was chiming midnight
when there came a discreet tap at my
outer door, and Addlngton Peace
walked in. He sat himself down In
the easy chair I offered, and permitted
; me to mix him a whisky and soda.
"Tell me, have you found the dia

"It Is very simple. The real dia

had been long and carefully prepared.

admirable Imitation made, who knew
that Taubery was leaving the country
and that the diamond was to be sent
Immediately to the strong room of a
bank, where the substitution that had
taken place might not be discovered
for months, perhaps years?
"Who, In short, had the clever
brain, the far-sighted Judgment, the
familiarity with jewels and those who

quired In the originator of such a
fraud? Not Ounton. nor Craddock,

Inspector Addlngton Peace beamed
upon me as he concluded bis deduc
tion concerning the theft of Julius
Taubery's diamond, with an expres
sion of hopeful enthusiasm, and lit a
cigarette at my reading lamp.
"This unknown criminal genius has
got the diamond, anyway," I said.
"I am not so sure of that Consider
the position of the actual thief on" the
discovery that the stone was false. He
must hare been In a state of blind ter
ror. If we may suppose that Colonel
Ounton Is Innocent, the bellowing of
that worthy gentleman must have
frightened him the more. To be
searched, discovered, and actually dis
graced a pleasant prospect, surely!
We may take It that be waa heartily

Uunton told us. Mr. Taubery remained
In the dining room to see that none
of the guesta returned after they bad
been searched. The door was subse
quently locked and a policeman sta
tioned In the passage outside; the
windows were fastened. Therefore
the thief could not come back to re
cover what he hnd temporarily hidden.
All of which might seem to prove that,
though Colonel Gunton affirms that be
went through the guests with an ex
pert hand, one of them managed to
ketp the diamond about him and carry
It away. Yet such an achievement
suggests rather the professional than
the an-ntour criminal. And. If for
that reason alone. I believe that the
stone Is still In the house. We ought
to be able to decide that point within

As I passed the bench, Peace stared

said. "But I warn you, Mr. Phillips,
