of the officer that nothing had been

sitting in the library writing at top

Darrent quietly maided hia head und

proportion, bronze. 1 and bearded, stroiii;
as an ox; temper very passionate;

ably South Africa."
Thompaon, with hia eyea wide oa n,
razed in astonishment at the di ti t tivo
and shifted uneasily from foot to foot.
He wears a heavy gold signet ring
on the little finger of the left hand and
has recently cnt the forefinger i f the

"Ahl Then my description fits aom
one I "
"It is Actry Maraden to the life, air,
bnt he didn't commit the murder."
"That is to be proved. He waa at
this house on the night of the mnrder.
You met him on that night."
"Yes, you, Thompson. You've got to
do your dnty, whether it ia palatable
to you or not. Astray Marailen left the
town nearly two years ago, came hack
here the night of the murder and li ft
next morning. If you did not meet imv
that night, yon would not know ne an
swered to my description. A man does
not lisik the same and certainly doe
not dress the same after an absence
abroad of two years. Where did you
meet him ?"
"Near the Palace hotel. "
"A little after a o'clock in tho morn
ing." "Was it snowing?"
"No, air; it had stopped."
"What did he say ? Did he went ex
Cited?" "He did seem rather rattled. H said
that he'd come back to try und be
friends with old Muraden, but to one
conld be, and he was off again."
"Very well; then one thing ia cer
tain, and that ia that Astray Muraden
waa in this room on the night of the
lunrder. It will rest for him to clear
himself or for the law to bring the
charge home to him. Marailen himself
ojiened the disr, and the two men en
tered thia room. Marsden sat in his
chair there, the chessboard waa ou that
small table la'side him, and he. waa un
doubtedly working out a problem when
he waa interrupted. It needs only a
glance at the Uaikcuse to show hia hob

beside him. The yonng man stood here"
Darrent tiak np his position by the
fender again "hia elbow npon the
mantelpiece so. Yon can see where
the elbow rested. He must be a tall
man who stands so, Thompson. That
gave me an idea as to hia height ; this
thread of wool, the texture of his
clothes. He smoked aa ho talked
smoked a coarse cnt ship's tobacco, not
the sort that a man ;t hia breeding
would smoke nnleas he had been down
in the world, knocking ubont from one
country to another, and therefore

particular care of hia apa'arance at

are very clear when we look carefully."
"Yea, sir." the officer mechanically
replied, gazing at Darrent, bewildered.
"The young man Ktood here, and they
talked. Perhaps yonng Marailen wanted
money they generally do and the old
man refused, taunted him. Yon know
fl men can taunt, Thompson. Tin
words got higher and higher, the young
man's temper hotter and hott and
then he launched into a furious out
burst, emphasizing each point by bring

that it concerns Astray all, the same,

Mar-d. ii intended, for example, to write
murdered by Astray 's brother' or uny
utln r relative, and died la-fore he conld
write the last word. What becomes of
your evidence then?"
And. having calmly und deliberately
dein'olished the structure that he had so
carefully and elalsirately constructed,
Darrent took a cigarette from his case
and, lighting it, strolled over to the

they were, mid perhaps they were done

Perhaps the. man's ellmw never rested
on the shelf, but old Muraden hud'pnt
something thero und afterward removed
it. 1 shouldn't like to swear to any of
it. I've put a lot of little things togeth

one of them. What do yon think, eh?"
"I think they all fit too well."
"Tin y fit well enough, but they prove
nothing, absolutely nothing. To be a
successful detective one must be ready
not only to forge chains, .but to set to
work directly afterward and break
them, if they can be broken, test every

must ni t persnade himself, becanse a

that only, must la) the truth. Why, I
have made ninny aa giaid a chuin of cir
