and It waa evident from a restraint

something had happened.
- The next morning, on exchanging
' .' worda with aerersl of tba girls, I no
ticed that they acarcely answered me.
X whlla aome of them failed to give me
any reply whatever. But what waa
my indignation when Sadie Stamper
passed me with a look of contempt

how lUlph rrleatley would treat me
while under a cloud. Shortly before
dinner I weot down into the parlor.
Now that the matter waa explained
to my own and my boat'a aallafactlon
I felt easier In presence of the ober.
There were aereral In the room when
I entered. Including. Ralph and Sadie,
who were eittlng together on a tete-a-tete
In the center of the room. I
walked paat both of them ' without

Ha took down aa minute a description
of ber aa I waa able to give him; also
a description of every article that waa
mlsalng. I asked him why she had
bidden the articles in my bureau draw
er, and he aald that by incriminating
soma 'one In tbe bouse she hoped to
divert- suspicion from herself long
enough to dispose of her plunder
For several daya while he waa at
work en the case I remained with
the party, affable to those who were
affable to me. paying no attention to
those who were cool to me. There
was a aide play going on that I enjoy
ed watching. Sadie Bumper waa en
deavoring to bold on to Ralph Priest
ley, and Ralph waa trying to get rid
of ber. The poor fellow waa between
two Urea. He knew that I would not
listen to him ao long aa he continued
ma attentions to Sadie, and to break
away from her waa not an eaay mat
ter, especially as hla only excuse waa
that abe believed me. a thief, which
waa no more than others of the party
Then one morning the detective re
ported that he had found aome of the
missing property in a pawnshop and
within a couple of daya after the dis
covery had arrested a woman with
more of it in ber possession. She tal
lied with my description of her and
turned out to be living in the neigh
borhood of tbe Eyrie. This waa the
reason abe knew of tbe house party
and tbe automobile excursion and waa
able to concoct her plan of robbing
That evening at dinner our host let
out the story, returning a number of
tne missing articiee to tneir owners.
I waa now in a very enviable posi
tion. I knew those who were friend'
ly to me and had honored me with
their confidence while I bad been un
Jer a cloud, and I knew those who
bad not. They all crowded around
me t(j show their good will and aaanre
me that they had not for a moment
believed ma to be guilty. The only
person who did not approach me waa
Ralph Priestley, whose every effort to
do ao I had succeeded In thwarting.
Now that I waa vindicated be not
only kept away from ane, but Clara
came to me after dinner to tell me
Jhat be was going away on a late
train. I watched for him to come
downstairs, and when he- came, pre
pared for the Journey. I met Mm and
