All the time that Darrent had been
qnestioning Thompson his eye had
never ceased to wander over the room,
from the window to the bookcases, from
the bookcases to the lofty chimney piece
tnd hack to the window again. Those
fonnd panea in the doors of the dark
nak bookcases seemed to Darrent to
glare down at him like wide open eyes
wide open, staring eyes tuut never
closed night or day, eyes that had gazed
down on Josiah Mareden score npon

What was Josiah Maroden doing that
fatal night T Was he sitting, solitary
and alone, by the fire, the gray ashes of
which still filled the grate, reading one
or other of those treasnree of literature
that lifted the shelves?
Darrent walked ronnd the room and
minutely examined the fastenings of
the bookcases. No; the dnst proved that
they bad not been opened for weeks.
Had Marsden been eeated there at the
table with the chessmen and board in
front of him, working out some prob
lem, when the assassin had crept noise
lessly in, stolen behind him and stabbed
him to death t
Was there awthlng in all that room
to afford one tiny clew to the mnrderert
Had there been a struggle between
the murderer and victim, and in it had
there possibly been a tiny thread of
material torn, or a button wrenched off,
or an ornament broken, that conld af
ford something of a clew T With eyes
fixed on the floor, Darrent stood think
ing, while Thompson waited respect
fully on one side. Darrent paced the
length of the room from the window to
the fireplace eeveral times and pon
dered. At last he panned in one of bis
Journeys and gazed out over the whiten
ed country. From the house to the riv
rr not a footmark marred the surface.
The snow that had drifted on to the
broad window sill was undisturbed.
There had been no escape that way.
He faced ronnd and stood with his
back to the light The wintry sun was
shining full into the library and throw
ing a ribbon of color across the floor.
nd In its track upon the polished wood
something white glittered. It was only
a tiny speck, but it canght Darrent's
eye. He stooped, picked it up and ex
amined it closely. It seemed to be a
broken piece of ivory, a little mite of
lacelike filigree. He looked at it in the
full light of the window, and suddenly
it dawned npon bliu that here was his
clew, here in this tiny scrap, for Dar
reut felt confident that it bad formed
part of the ornamental carving of a
chessman, and it was a set of chessmen
that some one hod been at great pains
to secure from that very room.
Yes. here was the clew t Once let him
trace the set of chessmen that had been
obtained from The Orange, once let
him find that one was damaged anl
satisfy himself that this fragment fitted,
and the fiixt step in the discovery of
the murderer of Jiwi.ih Marsden Wonld
tie caretnily wrapped the piece of
ivory in a cigarette paper and placed.it
in his imckptlxiok.
Mow, Thompson," he said to the
officer, who had been interesteoly
watching his proceedings, "I think I've
seen enough of this room, for the pres
ent at any rate. I t us turn onr atten
tion to a thorough search of the rest of
the building. The murderer seems to
have entered in the ordinary way, bnt
be did not depart the same way at he
entered. Therefore, Thompson, be knew
of some other means of exit, and what
we have got to do is to find it."
iMrrvnt hail already arrived at the
conclusion that the murder bad been
committed by some one who possessed
an intimate knowledge of the structure
of The Orange itself and of aotne secret
means of escape. There must be a aecre
means of exit from the building of
that he was confident bnt where t
That was the trouble, and that they
wonld have to discover. That the en
trance bad been in the ninal and ordi
nary way and the exit in some nnnsnal
and extraordinary way was certain,
and that gave rise to two possible the
cries. One waa that the mnrierer was
nier ly an ordinary visitor, with origi
nal'? no ill intent Something which
mh'lit never be solved had led to a
qnarr.'l with old Marsden. and that had
ended la struggle and hia death.

he must have escaped from tlie back i f
The Grunge, and yet from the house trt
the river the snow lay iu ono biikhho
undisturbed niuntle of white. S,t a

On the left of the entrance hull, op-
posit e the library, was the only oHu r
room that seemed to have been in con
stant use. and nt the far end, in tlie
same place, as the window was mtuat'd
in the library, a fernery had bc-n built,
but it was bare of foliage now anl
boasted only a collection of dry ni'd
withered shrnbs. This was the la.:l
room Darrent entered. He stood in the
conservatory and opened the door lead
ing to the grounds. A flight of steps, pro
tected by an ornamental iron awning,
over which ivy and creeping plants bad
grown, led down to a covered trcllised
walk, where tho thick iutwining folia;;.'
had kept the snow from penetrating.
The walk extended from the bottom of
the steps to an open rockery some fit
feet away, built in the dip of the
ground. Large masses of rugi;ed Btonn
had been piled together, and rouh
hewn steps led down to a d ,-ep poo!
filled with brushes and aquatic plants. J
The pool, which was frozen and black,
Was overhung by drooping trees, win we
pendent branches almost tombed it
surface a charming spot iu summer,
with its moss grow- stones, its white
and yellow wuter lilii-s, its creeping
plants and miniature waterfall plashing
gently down, but now, in the grip of
tlie ice kinir, its sylvan bennty wu
transformed as by a magic wund. It
seemed a very fuiry grotto. The over
hanging trees gleamed white with
fronted snow, glistening like riiitmfmds.
and from every rock hung fantant ic ici
cles in all the beauty of un Aladdin's
Darrent descended the steps and trav
ersed the covered walk, which was en
tirely froo from snow, nntil he reached
the rough hewn steps tlint led down to
the pool, and as he gazed nixin tho
beauty of the scene before him and ad
mired the pendent branches frosteil
with their whito, feathery powder his
keen eye was attracted by the slender
trunk of a silver birch which some four
feet from the ground showed a space a
few inches wide alieeut of the snowy
covering which decked the remainder
of the tree. He carefnlly examined the
spot It looked as thongh a hand had
gripped it Then he bent down and
a-rntinized tho earth at the foot of the
birch. Yes, there was the mark as of a
footstep. Any one coming from the
covered walk that led from the con
servatory to tho rockery would have
been able without treading on any of
the snow covered gronnd to have seized
the trunk of that tree and so swung
himself down toward the bottom of tho
pool. Stepping carefully over the slip
pery stone, IliitTent and Thompson
reached the bottom and sttod side by
side npon the frozen surface.
Evidently some one had' been there
before them, for the impression of foot
prints was visible, leading to the very
back of the grotto. Following the track,
they pushed aside the long streamers of
creeping plants coated with ice, that
jingled musically as they moved them,
and fonnd the grotto extended some
feet beyond, nnd then it seemed to
cease, shut in by heavy masses of rock,
but on closer approach a narrow open
ing at right angles became visible, and
Into this the footprints led. ith an
effort they forced themselves through
the entrance and into a kind of tnnnel,
at the far end of which a ray of lUrht
shone like a star. The floor of the tun
nel waa coated with ice, and evidently
they were walking along the bod of a
channel by which the over How from the
grotto found its way ont into the river.
Slowly and painfully thy groped
along in the darkness, stumbling and
slipping upon the smooth surface of
the ice and In-nising their har.ds against
the sides of ' the tunnel. Half way
throngh, the pathway grew narrower
and lower, and it was only by creeping
in a painfully stooping attitnde that
they conld get along at all. The light
grew nearer. They struggled on for a
dozen or so yards more and at length,
throngh a tangled mass of shrnbs a id
brushes, saw stretching bvfore them t!ie
broad expanse of the river, while the
ring of the skates sounded merrily io
The skaters passed, flying like the
wind, along the stretch of perfect ice.
No one wss in sight either to the riu'ht
or the left, ae. pushing aside the bushes,
Herbert Darrent and bis companion j
crept on their bands and knees from the .
narrow causeway ont on to the frozen
river, and the way of the escape of the '
murderer of Josiah Marsden was Solved. ,

The quick guessing theorists who
have decided that the only way to
checkmate the trusts is to rt-js-al Pro
tective duties might do worse than
ponder for a moment over the trust
plank adopted by the Nebraska state
republican convention a few days
ago. Here it is :
We denounce the attempt now des
perately being made to array labor
and capital in hostile camps. The
republican party, now as always, op
poses trusts and' combinations hav
ing for their purpose the sliding of
competition and arbitrarily control
ling production or fixing prices; but
we als i recognize that legitimate
business interests, fairly capitalized
aud homstly managed, have built up
our ii dustries at home, given the
largest employment to labor, at the
highest wages, and have enabled us
to successfully compete with foreign
countries in the markets of the
world. Such industries must not be
struck down by legislation aimed at
dishonestly organized institutions
which destroy legitimate enterprise
aud the opportunities of labor and
plunder the public.
There is in this statement enough
to cause some of the quick guesscn
to think twice before they bold up
their hands tor the removal of Ihe
protective tariff from the federal
statute books that is, provided they
