in which it was his custom to receive bis
callers next morning, when the door
swung open, and a gentleman, unmistak­
ably English and carrying in his gloved
hands a tall silk hat. and the Inevitable
umbrella of the rain afflicted Hriton. en­
tered the apartment.
He was accom­
panied by a lady whose grace of carriage,
and really handsome face, accentuated if
anything in the eyes of the Frenchman
the villaluous lit of all her garment*.
"There should be a law passed to com­
pel such people to employ Parisian dress­
makers. But even then they would never
look like our women," was bis inward
comment, as he arose, and with the po­
liteness of his race bowed low as Ii* re­
ceived his visitors.
"Monsieur le prefect, I presume,” said
the gentleman, in French which was sim­
ply execrable. " I have the honor of ad­
dressing Monsieur Lablanche, the prefect
of the Parisian police?”
" I am he, monsieur.”
"Perm it me to present you to my wife,
Madame Russell— Monsieur Victor I«i
The Frenchman bowed more gallantly
than ever. Really, notwithstanding their
gauebertes, these Euglish women were
quite charming. In fact, the prefect was
agreeably surprised with his visitors. The
Englishman's manner was perfect. With
his native dignity was blended a delight­
ful air of deference and politeness. Not­
withstanding his villainous pronouncta
tion of the French language, he managed
to make himself clearly understood. The
evident cordiality of his manner thawed
whatever reserve the prefect had sought
to hedge himself in with.
His heart
cnlte wanned to the intelligent Lon-
“ I have the great fortune to be the
bearer of a letter to you. monsieur,” he
said, "from the superintendent of police
at Scotland Yard, our mutual friend.
Mr. James T. Henderson.”
" I am delighted to see anyone who
comes to me introduced by Monsieur Hen­
derson,” replied the prefect.
He scarcely glanced at the letter. He
was afraid he had but little to show them
after the magnificent department of his
friend, M. Henderson, in London. Still
he should be happy to place himself at
their disposal. What would they like to
see first?
“ Oh, the rogues' gallery, by all means,"
suggested Mme. Russell, enthusiastically.
“ Or your splendid Bertlllon system of
measurement for prisoners, which you
hnve brought to such perfection in Paris,"
added her husband.
It was a telling compliment, because
It was true. M. Iyablanche had been in­
deed the first to adopt the Bertlllon sys­
tem, and under his supervision It had
attained a marvelous degree of accuracy
and perfection. He had taken the raw-
theory of a prison reformer, and reduced
it to a practical science.
“ Our rogues’ gallery is not as exten­
sive as it used to be," he explained.
“ Since the adoption of the system of
measurements we have not photographed
any but the most notorious criminals. You
can probably see more pictures In Lon­
don. However, I will show you some of
the most Important.”
He led the way into a square, high-
ceiled chamber, lighted from the roof only,
the walls of which were literally covered
with portraits of the desperadoes of

strangely moved.
“ Poor creatures,” she murmured, soft­
ly, as her little hand rested involuntarily
on the officer's coat sleeve.
The prefect regarded her admiringly.
Tears of genuine pity were in her bright,
laughing eyes.
“ But it Is strangely Interesting," she
added. "O h m o n sieu r, please show me
one or two of the most desperate and
relate their history.”

entirely concealed with a profusion of

“ You’ll do,” he said presently, “ all but

“ Oh, monsieur is mistaken, 1 am sure,”
replied Mme. Cresson, with enthusiasm.
“ I was on Regent street not two weeks

“ You are wrong, all the same. I was
