— A Strange Revelation By ELINOR MARSH _____ £______________ W hen John Dowling retired from tlie police, a t a dinner giveu him he told the following story: "Most of you will rem em ber the Charuley m urde r case. A fter a mouth had passed and we had given out ev ery day or so th a t we were on the track of the m u rd e re r and would get him suit- the public begun to lose con fidence and the papers were full of a< athlng re m a rk s about the police. An election for city oilioers w a s coming on, and th e chief told me one duy to drop e verything else and work on the Charuley case, Intim ating th a t the ad- m inistration’s control depended on my discovering th e murderer. “1 did a hard lot of thinking on the problem. Indeed. 1 begun to fear that If 1 kept on 1 would ru n Into mouomu- uutniu. I walked the tloor nights tr y ing to p u t this and tha t together to construct u theory of the murder. So my w ife put me hi a room by myself w here I could prowl without waking her or the children. "One nig h t a fte r the usual brain racket 1 fell Into u slumber. 1 don’t know how long 1 slept, hut 1 think It was about a n hour. Then 1 woke up and sta rte d ut seeing a man standing by my bed. ••‘Come With me,’ tie said, ’and l -ll p u t you on to an explanation of the Charuley m urder.’ "1 Jumped out of lied, bustled on my clothes, strapped on my revolver—for despite my anxiety to get the Inform a tion he promised 1 did not forget tha t he hud come Into my house w ithout being adm itted, a n d l was som ew hat suspicious of him and followed him ¿lowiistuirs. A horse and buggy were standing a t the door. We climbed Into the vehicle, the fellow whipped up the horse, und olT we went. “1 was so Im patient and curious to know w h a t w as coining that 1 tried to pum p It out of him, but It's mouth w as shut like an oyster, and never a word «ltd he speak from the time we sta rte d till we pulled up lit front of the house In which Charuley’s bob.' had been found the morning lifter tin murder. 1 knew It was that house, though 1 d id n ’t know any one of the family of the m urdered man. It ha.I been sh u t up since the tragedy, but now there w ere lights tn every part “ My companion alighted, led me to the house and, opening the front door for tne, bade m e enter. What became of him a f te r tha t 1 don't know. I didn't see him again, unless one of the persons about whom 1 aiu going to tei' you w as he. "H e a rin g voices mingled with sobs upstairs, 1 ran up and stood ip an opening on th e second tloor. looking Into a bedroom through an open door Ou a couch lay the llgure of a man. hut a n u m b e r of persons were crowd lug about him so tha t 1 could not see his face. A young woman wus on her knees beside the couch, hysterically clinging to the body, while another w om an w as trying to draw her away. A m an w as standing spurt, wringing his hands. 1 stepped Into the room, and the moment he saw me lie col lapsed. T he woman trying to draw the girl aw a y from the body turned and, seeing me, uttered n shriek. Then Bhe dropped on her knees before me. amt betw een her sob* said: " ‘h o u ’t ta k e Mill!
