n m uinfyrrr mj ■ ■ i. i rarrvc i have often been asked if in my de tective work I bad sheered off from the wrong trail when I was about to uab a criminal through sympathy. I never did that, but I once lost a woman m lioiu I had under arrest because I had become convinced that she was inno cent. I did not tell her that she might escape, but pretended to trust her. I •was sorry afterward that I didn't let her know that I was willing she should go. for I saw her do something to gain her freedom that made my blood cur- do-. A cashier o f a bank hud been con victed of defalcation, had been sent to the penitentiary and by means of steel saws sent him by his wife had cut the bars of a window of his ceil. She had also provided him with a ripe, on which he had lowered himself to the ground and had then thrown it over the prison wall, she 1 icing outside to catch It and secure the end. lie then climbed on to the wall, and his wife and three o f his friends had held a blanket, into which ho hud Jumped. Then, getting Into a carriage, he had been driven awuy. The warden was quite sure that the eaca|ied man’s w ife had se ured his freedom, hut hud no evlden e to sup port the charge. Some time uflor the escape I was ordered by my chief to go to Albany, where the wonutn was liv ing, arrest her on u trumped up charge and bring her to Philadelphia, where the crime of which her husband had been convicted wus committed. The object was to force lier to betray Ills whereabouts, or, rather, to force him to give himself up to secure ids wife's freedom. 1 found the lady—she was a lady, and u reflued lady, too living in seclu sion. She doubtless surmised what kind of a game was to be played on her, for 1 saw her face set with reso lution. I did not believe anything could lie forced out of tier. She went with me without making any ado, ami 1 refrained from the indignity of plac ing handcuffs on her. I took a seat be side her in the train, resolving to make the Journey as easy for her ns possible. During the ride to New York she told me one of the most interesting stories of how a man's ruin may lie planned to save another that 1 ever listened to. If the poraou who laid the scheme had devoted his genius to writing detective stories he might have made a large fortune. The most ingenious part o f it was that ho lived on an innocent man so that there was no way that bo could prove Ids Innocence without casting nn aspersion on ids own wife. Not only dkl the lady make the dif ferent stops tn the plot plain to me, but by the artless way sho told her story convinced me that she had not Invented it and was telling the truth. And when she told me that she and her husband had intended to start for ltia/11 with her children In a few days to begin life anew under a different name I completely soured on my Job. On reaching New York we took sup per together in a restaurant, crossed the river and boarded a train for Phil adelphia. Having told me her story, the lady sat silently weeping. Her ar rest laid siHdlcd a plan that she and her husband had been working ami waiting for for several months. If her story ami my faith lu Its truth had not conquered me her tears would have done so -that Is. being convinced of licX bW -viKO After leaving Trcuton I told her that I was going into the smoking car. “ Aren't you afraid I'll escape?’’ she asked. “ I don’t see how you can,” I replied. “This train doesn't stop till we reach Philadelphia, and before that I’ll be back.” I did not Intend to return to her till we wore in the station at Philadelphia, hoping that she would find a way of giving me the slip there, and thought it possible that the train might pull up on tiio way and go slow enough for her to jump off. I smoked several cigars. At one of the towns through which we passed where there were many tracks 1 no ticed that we were running beside a train moving in the same direction ns ourselves and on the next track. The two trains were so near together that 1 could put my hand in at the window of tiie one beside us. Doth trains were going ut pretty good speed. Presently the other train begun to pull ahead of mine. I was sitting in the front Rent of the smoking car on the side next the other train. Suddenly as tiie platform o f the rear car o f the other trains caught and passed tiie platform of my car I saw my prisoner bond forward, grasp tiie rail o f tiie platform beside her and step on to the other train. She missed the rail she tried for, and I thought it was all up with her. but she caught the rear rail ami succeeded In clambering on to tiie platform. That’s all I saw, for tiie train she was on passed out of sight. I thanked heaven that I had been spared sending the poor woman to her death and that she had escaped me. Just before reaching Philadelphia 1 went into tiie car where I had left my prisoner and, not finding her, oil reach ing the hotel at which I put up notified my chief of the woman's escape, telling him exactly how she had effected It. It is needless to say I was discharg ed. After some difficulty I found an other berth and never regretted what I had done. Many years after the lady’s husband was exonerated, and the story Just ns she told it to me came out In the newspapers. FRANK TAYLOR, Notary Public Cloverdale, Pacific Meat & Produce PROFESSIONAL Co.
