He held out a slip ot paper, which I
took and carried to tbe central lamp.
It was an old newspaper clipping,
stained and blurred, relating In six
tines bow James Coran, described as
a student, had been charged at tbe
Bow street police court with drunken
ness, followed by an aggravated as
sault on tbe constable who arrested
htm. He was fined tbree pounds or
even days. That was all.
"Not a subject ot earth-shaking Im
portance." I said.
"No; but It has proved a awtaclent
excuse for blackmail."
"Then the victim is a fool." I an
swered hotly. "Why, from tbe look of
tbe paper tbe a 3 air must have

"Thirty-two years this month."

The little man stood wltb his bands
behind blm and his bead on one side,
watching me with benevolent amuse
ment. When be spoke It was la tbe
ponderous manner wblcb he some
times assumed, a manner that always
reminded me of a university profes

to fcls class.

"Blx months ago an envelope ar

One was tbe newspaper clipping yon

that unless tbe sum of twenty pounds

morning he received a letter similar
to the first, save that the demand was
for a hundred pounds. He had just
sense enough to see that If be al
lowed himself to be blackmailed again
It would merely encourage further at
tempt at extortion. 60 when be ar
rived In town, be took a cab to Scot

caught tbe next train down to Bran

gathered a few details concerning
him and his family. In all particulars
he seems to hsre spoken tbe truth."

"Oh. yea." he said. "But It la the

When I left htm halt an hour later
It waa with the promise that I should

not, save for the blackmailer. If Peace
should catch him.
The following afternoon I was sit
ting la my studio with the cigarette
that comes so pleasantly after tea and
buttered toast between my lips, when
my servant, Jacob Hendry, thrust In
bis head to announce visitors. They
came hard upon his heels a long,
gray-wlskered man In tbe lead, and
the inspector trotting behind. As they
cleared the door the little detective
twisted round bis companion and
waved aa introductory band.
"This is Mr. James Coran," be said.

and screwing his haJds together In
evident agitation. He had a hollow.
melancholy face, a weak mouth, and
eyes of an Indecisive gray, from his
square-toed shoes to the bald patch on
the top of his head he was extremely,
almost flagrantly, respectable.
"I am taking a great liberty, sir,"
he said humbly, "but you are, as It
were, a straw to one who Is sinking
beneath the waters of affliction. Do
you. by chance, know the town of
Bread on?"
"I have never been so fortunate as
to visit It," I told him.
"I anderstand from the police on

abroad. Accustomed, therefore, to
the corruption that taints the muni
cipal life of other cities, you can
scarcely comprehend tbe whole-souled
enthusiasm with which we of Brendoa
approach the duties, may I say the
sacred trust, of admlnlstertng to the
sanitary and moral welfare ot our
county. Those whom we select must
be of unstained reputation. From a
place on the sports committee of the
flower snow I myself have risen
through successive grades until even
the houses of parliament seemed
within the limit of legitimate ambi

wiped bis face with a large silk pock
et handkerchief. The situation was
ridiculous enough, yet not without a
certain pathos underlying the humor.
for the man was sincerely In earnest
"If I can help you, Mr. Coran. I am
at your disposal." I told blm.
"It la a matter of considerable deli

I agreed at once. It could not fall
to be an amusing adventure. Atter
some discussion, it was arranged that
Peace and I should be Introduced as
business friend of Mr. Coran, who
bad asked ua down to Brendon on a
sudden Invitation. A telegram was
sent off to that effect
For the first fifteen minutes of the
train we shared a crowded compart
ment Gradually, however, our com
panions dropped away until we were
left to ourselves. Mr. Coran was In
evident hesitation of mind. He shifted
about screwing bis bands together
with a most doleful countenance.
When be commenced to speak be
leant forward as tf arrald that tbe
very cushions might overbear him.
"I have mentioned my sister Re
becca." be said. "She Is a woman of
remarkable character."
"Indeed." I murmured, for be chose
to address me more directly.
"We have differed lately on several
points of er local Interest It Is
very Important that she should not
learn the cause of my appeal to the
police. Anything that aroused her
suspicions might lead to consequences
very disagreeable to myself."
"I wUl be discreet"
"My daughters will er benefit
largely under her will. She would cut
them out of It without hesitation If
she learnt that their father had been
connected wltb so er disgraceful a
scandal. Tou understand the situa
tion?" "Perfectly. It must render your po
sition additionally unpleasant"
He sighed and relapsed Into a mel
ancholy silence, In wblcb the train
drew up at Brendon station. A cab
was In watting. Into which we climbed.
A couple of turns, a short descent
and we drew up at a gate In a long
wall of flaming brick.

carefully about me. Tbe house was
also ot red brick and of mixed archi

Intended It for the Tudor period, with
variations suggested by modern sani

the windows waa of considerable size,
with laurels and quick-growing shrubs
lining tbe edge of a lawn and several
winding walks. At the farther end a
thatched roof, rising amongst the
young trees, showed the position of
the snmmer bouse which played so
Important a part In the story we bad
It was striking six as we entered
the hall. Our host led us straight to
our rooms on the first floor. We had
been told not to bring dress clothes,
so that ten minutes later we were
ready to descend to the drawing
Mr. Coran's daughters, a pair ot
pretty, bright-faced girls, were seated
In those careless attitudes wblcb de
note tbe expected appearance of
strangers. Miss Kebecca, a tall, spec
tacled female, whose sixty years had
changed curves for acute angles, re
posed in tbe window, resdlng a vol
ume of majestic size. She laid It
down with a thump, removed ber
glasses and received us with great
modesty and decorum. Tbe Inspector
and a fox terrier, that set up a bark
ing as we entered, were the only mem
bers ot the party that seemed natural
and at ease.
I found the dinner pass pleasantly
enough, despite the gloom that radi
ated from tbe brother and sister.
Emily, the victim of the "unfortu
nate attachment" quite captured my
fancy though I am not a ladles' man.
Twice we dared to laugh, though the
reproving eyes of the elders were con.
stantly upon us. In the Intervals of
my talk with ber I obtained the keen
est enjoyment from listening to the
conversation of Peace and Mlsa Re
becca. Tbe lady cross-examined htm
very much as If he were a prisoner ac
cused of various grave and monstrons
offenses. Upon the question of antl
vlvtsectlon she was especially urgent
that they are kept off the street aa
vendors and beggars.
The policewomen all perform occa
sional eight duty and patrol some of
the worst quarters of the city. With
the exception of the policewomen at
Chrlstlansand, who wear a complete
official uniform, the women are
dressed In plain clothes, only wearing
green capes bearing a mall medallion
tamped with the crown and lion ot
Norway, to distinguish them from
ordinary cl Usees.
Cabinet Ollicers Combine to Pre
vent Misbranding. 1
Washington. l- C. -Probably the
n.ost radical and far-reaching expo.-,
tion of tho food and drugs act Hmce its ,
enactment was made 1 hurs.iny
Secretaries Houston. and Kcd
fleld. charged with enforcing this stat
ute, ruled that ment and meat I""J
ucts in interstate or foreign commerce
which hitherto have l.een exempt from
the provisions of the pure f.d la, i
may be seized if misbranded or sdul-,
licginning at once, manufacturers,
of meat foods will be required to com
ply strictly with the food and drug f
act as well as with the meat inspection
law. , ., 1
This action was taken on tin
strength of an opinion by Attorney ;
General McKeynolds. The three sec- ;
retaries revoked a regulation adopted ,
in October. l'.tOti. only four months af- I
..- of the wire food law,
which had prevented the department
of Agriculture, according to state
ment by Secretary Houston, "from
prosecuting manufacturers of meat
foods under the pure law, or or
dering seizures or prosecutions for
misbranding or adulteration of domes
tic meats."
Secretary Houston said he could not
understand why meat and meat prod
ucts were not food in the sense of the
wording of the pure food and drug act.
and why his department could not scire
adulterated or misbriin.led meat once
it had entered into interstate com
merce. Therefore he had sought the
advice of the attorney general.
"Under the meat insection law."
the secretary said, "meat inspectors
have absolutely no power to seize
meat or meat food products that have
become bad or have been a.iiiiicrnico. ,
after they have left a Federally in-)
spected establishment. The only rem
edy possible under the meat act is to
proceed economically against anyone
selling bad meat, but even in this
event, bad meat cannot be seized nor
its sale prevented.
Decisions Against Itoad Only He
ginning of Struggle.
Washington. I. C.--The state rate
decisions which marked the session of
the Supreme court recently are re
garded by some as merely the begin
ning of a tight by the railroads against
low rates.
In each case where a railroad failed
to sustain its claim that the state
rates were confiscatory the Supreme
court specifically reserved the right of
I the road to begin new proceedings,
i This was true as to two roads in Min
nesota, twelve in Missouri and two in
Arkansas, where Justice Hughes said
the data on which the contention of
confiscation waa based was too general.
Whether any road can collect data be
fore the Interstate Commerce commis
sion concludes its valuation of all the
railroad property in the United States
sufficiently accurate to satisfy the
court that proper valuations have been
arrived at is a new question.
Flections Worry Jurist.
Chicago Charles S. Cutting, for
many years judge of the Probate court
here, announced that he would resign
from the bench September 1, to re

"I im resigning because of the an
noyance of constantly recurring elec

"A man is no longer judged on his
merits as a judge. Judges are praised
or blamed according to tho parties
they belong to. The constant worry
and annoyance of this sort of thing
has been too much for me. If it
were not for that I would gladly re

Berlin The issues of the proposed
Mexican National railways and Mexi
can government loans were barred
from the German market by the Prus
sian minister of commerce. He noti
fied the banks interested that they

request of the German government to
the great German banks to desist from

the monetary pressure at home.
