The Roupell Mystery
By Austyn Granville
Alfred l-i,u. lOiualurd In earnest
conversation with Mme. Crreson for up
ward of two hour. During that period
the young woman wwrl times retired
to the privacy ot her bed chamber' and a
many tlraen emerged therefrom, reappear
ing upon the lint occasion dtv-wcd In full
street costume, nj having her dirk hair
entirely concealed with a profusion ot
blonde, fluff ringlet.
She hJ on a rather loud, plaM dress,
a traveling cape of Scotch wool mi, and
a boh net very plainly trimmed. Plain

a small traveling bag. On ber feet were

leste looked on wondering!? and ate her
lon-bon. M. Casugne examined her
mother with the eye nt a critic.
"You'll do," he Mid presently, "all but
(he gaiters. I don't think thaw white
gaiter hare reached tondon yet."
"Oh. monsieur la mistaken, I am aure,"
replied Mme. Cresson. with enthusiasm.
"I wia on Urgent street not two week

behind Paris, and New York six month
behind I-ondon In luch matter. Now,
doa't contradict me, child. The Kngti!i

Mme. Cresson urged the point no fur
them. Turning to ber maid, ahe said:
"Ilrlng me tny dark gray gaiter. Na
non; they are a year, at least, out of
fashion In Pari, monsieur. I hope they
will satisfy you."
"You think I am very hard to please,"
remarked Camgne. "I may be so. I
know the kind ot man I have to deal with
In Victor Lablanrbc, the prefect of po
lice. I will call for you to-morrow at
ten o'clock. In th mentlm I hare
quite a deal to attend to."
He took hi hat, klucd little Celeste
good -by, and. descending by the stairway,
opened the black door and passed out on
to the street.
' "I love Ppa Casugne," CTled little
Celeste, a she tood by the window
watching the retrrotlng form ot th gen
tleman who bought the bon-bons. Then
looking up at her mother, sb added :
"You lore him, too, dn't you,

M. Casaagne pursued hi way (till fur-
tbem Into the Intricacies of the Latin
Quarter. At last he stopped before a
email shop, pushed up the latch of the
door and entered. A Urge, stout man.
with a pen behind his ear, was seated at
a b!gb desk, with a pile of proof In front
ot him. II nodded familiarly to the de
tective, got off hi (tool and at once con
tacted him Into a private office.
"Ua! Moiuleur C'assagne,' 'he exclaim
ed. "What can I do for you to-day f
"I bar two small Job for you. It'a
Imply to set two lines ot type, and print
tne bait a doxen abeet of note paer; also
couple ot cards. I will pay you well
for It. Can you do It personally, so that
bo one else will know what you are do

"I can. Write out what you wish

"I want you to set up this." said Cas
aagne, as be banded hi copy (o the
printer. "Set it up In English type, and
strike It off on Kngllsh paper. I will
wait her for It"
Twenty minute later M. Cassagne
wa on the street. In his pocket, neatly
packed between sheets of tissue paper to
prevent tbelr "setting off," were six
beet ot note paper, and on the top
right-hand corner ot each was printed
tbe words. In bold English type:
SUPERINTENDENT OF POLICE
""' "London, W. C."
IT also bore two card which read:
"MR. GEOHOE Ht'SSELL,
"3d Eaton Square."
Casague Jumped Into a cab and drov
(tome. Arrived there he took off his hat
and cost and washed bis bands carefully.
Then be took down from an upper shelf
an old letter file, and turning to tbe
letter "II," drew out a letter addressed to
himself, wblch wa written In a large
English band. Next he took from tbe
pocket of bli coat tbe six sheets of paper
and the two card. The latter be put
Into a card case by themselves, the for
rner b put on .the table.
Then he got a pen and some Ink and
went to work, laboriously but skillfully.
After spoiling three sheets of paper he
produced something be was satisfied with.
Taking tbe letter to the window be held
It to tbe light, as If admiring bis own
handiwork, and read a follow:

also is not bad. M. Henderson would
doubtless be careful lest hit friend Mr.
Russell should present It at Paris, Ken
tucky, or lVirls, Texas."
The prefect of police, hid bardly time
to place himself In the dignified attitude
In which It was his custom to receive his
caller next morning, when th door
swung open, and a gentleman, unmistak
ably English and carrying In hi gloved
hands a tall silk hat, and the Inevitable
umbrella ot the rain-afflicted ltrlton, en
tered the apartment. He was accom
panied by a lady whose grace of carriage,
and really handsome face, accentuated If
anything In the eje of tbe Frenchman
the villainous fit of alt her garments.
"There should be a law parsed to com
pel such people to employ Parisian drees
makers. Hut even then they would never
took like our women," was hi Inward
comment, as he arose, and with the po
liteness of his race bowed low as be re
ceived hi visitors.
"Monsieur le prefect, I presume," said
the gentleman. In French which was sim
ply execrable. "I have the honor ot ad
dressing Monsieur l-ablsnehe. the prefect
of the Parisian pollcer
"I am he, monsieur."
"Permit me to present you to my wife,
Madame Russell Monsieur Victor La
blancbe." Tb Frenchman bowed more gallantly
thin ever. Really, notwithstanding tbelr
gaucherira, these English women were
quite charming. In fact, tbe prefect was
agreeably surprised with bis visitors. Tbe
Englishman's manner was perfect. With
bis native dignity wis blended a delight
ful air of deference and politeness. Not
withstanding bis villainous prooouncla
tion ot the French language, be managed
to make himself clearly understood. The
evident cordiality of his manner thawed
whatever reserve tbe prefect bad sought
to hedge himself In with. His heart
qutte warmed to th Intelligent Lon
doner. "I have the great fortune to be tb
bearer of a letter to you, monsieur," be
said, "from tbe superintendent of police
at Scotland Yard, our mutual friend,
Mr. James T. Henderson."
"I am delighted to se anyone who
come to me Introduced by Monsieur Hen
derson," replied the prefect.
He scarcely glanced at the letter. II
was afraid be bad but little to show tbem
after tbe magnificent department of his
friend, M. Henderson, In London. Still
he should be hsppy to place hlmvlf at
their disposal. What would they like to
"Oh, tb rogues gallery, by all means,"
suggested Mme. Russell, enthusiastically.
"Or your splendid liertltlon system of
measurement for prisoners; which you
bare brought to such perfection In Paris,"
added her husband.
It was a telling compliment, because
it waa true. M. IabUnche had been In
deed tbe first to adopt the Itertillon y
Inm. and under bis supervision It bad
attained a mirrelous degree of accuracy
and perfection. He bad taken the raw
theory ot a prison reformer, and reduced
it to a practical science.
"Our rogue' gallery l not a exten
sive as It used to be," he explained.
"Since tbe adoption of the system of
measurements we have not photographed
any but the most notorious criminals. You
can probably see more picture In Ixn
don. However, I will show you some of
tbe most important."
He led tbe way Into a square, high
ce'led chamber. Ilgbtrd from tbe roof only,
tbe walls of whltb were literally covered
with portraits of the dVsperadoe of
"You see we have tbem arranged a!

"Poor creatures," she murmured, soft
ly, a hrr Utile band rested Involuntarily
on tbe o(C-er" coat sleeve.
The prefect regsrded ber tdmtringly.
Tears of genuine pity were in ber bright,
"Hut It Is strangely Interesting," she
added. "Oh! monsieur, please shot me
on or two of tbe most desperate and
irlat tbelr history."
Tbe prefect turned to M. Russell. The
Englishman waa evidently deeply engross
ed tn tbe index, bunting up tbe charac
ter for himself, In hi independent Kng
"Nor I don't want to bear the his
tories," b said, looking up from the book,
with a cordial smile. "I'm perfectly
happy. Hut Mr. Russell Is an enthu
siast on criminal heroes. Hha would be
for raising a monument to Jack Sbep

The susceptible M, tablattche waa In

to regale her with short sketches ot hit
favorite malefactors, and madame looked
on anu iugneu or uecniue sau, jui .

They had complete! the flrrult of tlis
room and were near tho door again. M,
Ruuell was still Investigating on his own
account. Mme. Russell, the pressure ot
her little haud still upon the arm ot her
gutlant conductor, looked tip Imploringly
at him -with these fatal eye.
"Oh! monsieur," she said,-"do show nit
some of the prisoners,"

M. Castagne, "now convince m bejond
