Inclined to believe In the supernatural.
It occtned Impossible that there should
have been any reasonable explanation
of tbe man's death. Most men would
bnvo worn themselves out guessing nt
wild theories. If I had started to do
that, I should have been gucssln now.
"As It Is hero I ma. I trusted to
my belief that nothing remarkable
ever happens, and I won out."
Mr. Snyder sighed softly. Oakes wns
I entitled to n certain amount of gloat
ing, but there was no doubt that his
way of telling n story wns a little
"I bellevo in tho loglcnl sequence of
events. I refuso to accept effects un
less they nru preceded by causes. In
other words, with nil due deference to
you, Mr. Snyder, I simply decline lo
believe In a murder unless there Is u
motive for It.
"The llrst thing I set myself to as
certain was what was the motlvo for
this murder of Captain Gunner? And,
after thinking It over nnd making
every possible Inquiry, I decided that
there was no motive. Therefore, there
wuh no murder. It was like un elemen
tary sum,"
Mr. Snyder's mouth opened, nnd he
apparently Intended to speak, but he
changed bis mind and Onkes pro
ceeded :
"I then tested tho sulcldo theory."
Whnt motive wns tbero for suicide?.
There, was no motive. Therefore, there
was no suicide.".
This time Mr, Snyder spoko.
"Say, my boy, you haven't been
spending tho last few days In the
wrong houso by uny chunco, bnvo you?
You will be telling mo next time there
wasn't any dead man."
Oakes smiled.
"Not lit all. Captain John Gunner
wns dead' as mutton, and, ns the medi
cal ovbleuco proved, he died of tbo
blto of u krnlt."
Mr. Snyder shrugged bis shoulders.
"Go on,1' ho said. "It's your story.
I'm listening."
"Well, I won't keep you long, Captain
Gunner died from snakc-blto for the

"Tbero Is a very alinpln explanation
of that. Can't you guess It? I told you

"How do you know Hint?"
"Cnptnln Mulb'r told me. Not di

he said. It seems tbnt Cnptnln Midler
had ii friend, nn old shipmate, living
in Java. They corresponded, anil oc
casionally this man sends the captain
n present as a murk of bis esteem.
Tho last present ho sent blm wan our
friend, the aaakc."
"He didn't know be wns sending It.
He imagined ho wns sending n crate
of bananas, without any extras. Un
fortunately, tho Hnnko must bavo got
In unnoticed. These unsuspected ad
ditions to crates of bananas are quite
common. You must bavo read about
them In tho papers. It was only the
other dny that rt man found a taran
tula lusldo one.
"Well, that's my case against Mr.
Snake, und, short of catching him with
tho goods, I don't see how I could
have made out n stronger one. Don't
you agree with me?"
It went against tho grain of Mr.
Snyder to play tbn role of admiring
friend to his assistant's Triumphant
Detective, but he was a fair-minded
man, and be was forced to admit that
Oakes did ccrtnlnly seem to have
solved tho Insoluble.
"I congratulate you, my boy," he
said as heartily us bo could. "I'm
bound to say when you started out I
didn't think you could do It. It looked
to mo, like opo of those cases we fall
on, nnd keep mighty quiet about when
wo are printing our reminiscences.
You uro a wonder."
"Not at all. I merely used wbnl
wits God has given mo, and refused to
bo led down blind alleys. And you
must admit, Mr. Snyder, that I won
through without Urn amateur assist
ance of Mm. IMckett. which you rec
ommended to strongly."
Mr.. Snyder looked embarrassed,
"Tbnt was Jum a little Joke, my
boy. How did you b avo thu old lady?
I guess she was pleased?"
"She didn't show It. She's only
half nllve, that wnmiu' Sbo hasn't

to dine tonight In her private room,

Mr. Pickett Takes a Hand.
For soma time nfter Oakes had
gone, Mr. Snyder sat guiokiug und
thinking, His meditations were not'
altogether pleasant. Oakes, bo felt,
after this would bo. unbearable as n

That bo should have succeeded so
nwlflly und brilliantly In this matter
of tbo death of Cnplnln Gunner wns
nothing less than a disaster,
To Mr. Snyder, meditating thus,
thero whs brought tho card of u Culler.
Mrs. Plckolt would be glad if bo could
spare n fow inomontM.
Mr. Snyder wns glad to seo Mrs,
Pickett. Ho was n student of charac
ter, and sbo bnd interested blm nt
their first meeting.
Sbo fell Into none of tho groupn Into
which ho divided his fellow men and
women. Tbero wits something about
her which bnd seemed to him unique.
Ho welcomed his second chunco of
studying her nt close range. She
puzxlcd Mr. Snyder, nnd when any ono
or anything puzzled blm, he liked lo
keep him, her, or It under observation.
Sbo enmo In anil sat down nil Illy,
hithmclru: herself on tbo oxtreinu edge
of the cbnlr In which ft Abort wbllo
berore young Mr. Onkes bud lounged
so luxuriously.
Her hands wore folded on her hip,
nnd her nycn had tin penetrating stare
which In the early periods of the In
vestigation had disconcerted Elliott
Oakes. She gave Mr. Snyder, an ex
perl In -tbo dlmVu.i. art of weighing
people up, n- c-lriKirdlnary ImproR
slon of reserved force.
"Sit down. 'Mrs. l'lckelt," said Mr.
Snyder Kcnlully. "Very glad you looked
In. Veil, so It wasn't n-unlcr, nfter
Tvo Just been seeing Mr. Onkes,"
explained the detective, "Ho hail told
me nil nbout It."
"Ho .! .no all about It," said Mra.

A.r. 'Snyder looked at her Inquiring

"A conceited, headstrong young

It wns no new picture of his assist

bad often drawn It himself, but nt

"Then why rre yotl trying now to

"You mean that there Is another
explanation of tbo dead dog?"
"Not another. Mr. Onkes' Is not an"
explanation, Hut tbero Is an explana

strong und conceited ho might huvo
found It."
"You spenk us If you bin found
"I have."
Mr. Snyder stared.
'You huvol"
"Whnt Is It?"
"You shall hear, when I am ready
to tell you. In the meantime try and
think It out for yourself. A great
(letectlve agency Jlko yours, Mr. Sny
der, ought to do something In return
for n fee,"
Thero was something so reminis
cent of tbo school-teacher reprimand-'
lug a recalcitrant urchin that Mr. Sny
tier's hciiko of humor enmo to his res
ells. 1
"Well, wo do our best, Mrs. Pick
ett.. Wo uro only human. And, remem-1
her, wi4,unrantco nothing. Tho public !
employs us it t Its own risk."
Mry. Pickett did not pursue tbo sub
ject. She waited grimly till he bad
Mulshed speaking, und then proceeded
to nstouisn Air. snydor still rurtber
by asking blm to swear out a warrant
for arrest on a charge of murder.
Mr. Snyder's breath was not often
taken away In his own olllco; as u
rule, bo received bis clients' commu
nications, strange as they often were,
Hut nt her words ho gasped. Tho
thought crossed bis mind tbnt Mrs.
Pickett was not qui to anno,
Tho details of tho caso were fresh
In his memory, and he distinctly rccol-'
lected Hint the person she mentioned
had been away from thq boarding
bouse on the night of Captain Gun
nor's death, And, ho imagined, could,
If necessnry bring witnesses to provo
ns much, . .
Mrs. Pickett wns regarding bini
with an unfaltering 'fitn're To nil out
ward uppcurauccH she was snno,
"Hut you can't swear out warrants
.without, evidence."
"I huvo yvldeuco,"
; "Wlut Jh It?"
XIL l told yQU'UQW, you would .think
Hid t I wiih rut of my mind."
"Hut, my dear madatn( do you
realize what yon are asking mo to do7
I cannot make this agency responsible
for tho casual arrest of pcoplo In thla
wny, It might ruin me.( At tho lenst
It would illlike me n InUghlng-stock."
"Mr. Snyder, Union to me. You filial!
lino your own Judgment whether or
not to make the arrest on that war
rant. You shall bear what I bnvo to
say, and you shall co for yourself
how It Is taken. If nfter that you
feel .that you ennnot mako the arrest
you need do nothing."
Her voice rose. Kor the first time
since they met sbo began to throw
off tho Htony culm which served to
musk all her thoughts and emotions.
"I know who killed Captain Gun
nor. I can prove It. I knew It from
the beginning. It was like it vision.
Something told nle. Hut 1 had no proof.
Now, things have come to light, und
everything Is clear."
