A Woman
Detective's Story
I am woman detective. I was one
Mt to decoy a (kwpunido who waa
tusking collections ostensibly fur tb
church. Ho waa Aaron llurt-h puss

I Went there, learned tliat ha waa at
certain bold, aud bo waa pointed
out to ma lu tb reading room. .
I entered tlia room aud, going up to
him, aald:
Tho Re. Mr. Burt, I believe." '
"I in," be aald. rising and looking at
ma suspiciously.
"I bar undaratoud tbat you bav
great aucceaa In rabtlug .money for
churches, and 1 would Ilka to know If
yon would ba willing to belp ma pay
off a mortgage on our churvb at Avon
dale." Arondale waa a town not far from
Edgcrton, aud I bad besrd tbat one of
It churches waa uuder mortgage, which
the congregation desired to pay off.
Hut I Intended thia uly aa a means of
making Mr. llurt'a acquaintance.
I described to lilm the altuation at
ATondala, aiatlug that tba people there
ware well to do, but needed aome per.
tussive speaker to wake litem up. I
added that be would be paid for hla
labor, proposing that he receive the
contribution himself and deduct one
third of It for bliuaair. Thia I know
would please htm, for there would be
BO difficulty In hla deducting but third
or, rather, of appropriating the wbulo
contribution. He manifested a wil
lingness to undertake the work, but
protested against receiving ao much
compenwtlou aa a third of the amount
collected. On no account would be
eonaeut to deduct mure than 10 er
cant Ho waa ready to go to Avon
dale aa aoou aa I aald the ward. I told
bliu that I would ace Ihe pastor and
the deacon aud aa auoii aa I could get
their consent would let blm know. .
I pretended to so to Avomlate, but
really returned to the aherlff, who bad
employed me. to arrange with blm aa
to when and where he aliould eend the
force lutemled to make the arrnat It
waa agreed between ua that be waa to
aond one picked nun to Edgrrton, who
waa to paa blmaelf aa a commercial
tra voter, Thia mau'a name waa Larn

blm, and we rouferred together. I told
blm to brlug the largeat aample truuk

Returning to Kdgcrtou. I told Mr.
Bart that everything bad been arrang.
ed at Aroudale. but the evening eclect
ed for hla appeal for fund bad been
died for the following Sunday, four
daya hence. He waa not plcaaed at
thia, preferring that the work aliould
be doue at once. The truth la be did
not care to remain In the name locali
ty for ao long a period. I determined,
however, to bold blm If poulhle till I
could aprlng my trait.
I laid myaclf out to plcaae blm,
attending a good deal of time with
him. I knew that he waa not Inter
eated In tialtera of religion and did
not talk on rellgtoua autijerta. I pre
ferred to chooae other toplca, lu which
be would be more at home, my Inten
tion being when I had gained hla cou
ddouce to give blm to uuderalaud tbat
I knew hla true character, that I waa
one of the aame kind aa hliuaelf and
dnalred to aaalat blm In plundorlng tbat
I might abare the plunder.
When 1 thought the time ripe I re

It Should Have a Place In the Educa

We shall muse no real progreaa lu

Uubu, until we come to consider a

an essential xilnt lu ihe education of
our children.
Too ofteu parents excuse their re

study music. I'Ccuure a child shows
no such dealre t study reading, writ
lug aud arithmetic do we for tbat rea
son permit blm to ntmloct totally tbetse
subjects? No normal child dealrca to
atudy any subject, aud a failure on the
part or a child to crave a musical edu

empt blm from aurb trnlulng.
In my opinion the average child,
abould begin to atudy mnalc at the age
of eight or ulue and for at least two
year devote an hour a day to the exer
cise of It.
After two yean the chlld'a prefer
