HER trip had been platuied hur
riedly and her packing bud
been done In bait and con
fusion, ud when h entered
the pulluiau and the porter had found
her berth fur her, she waa all lu a
flutter. It had been one of those last
minute trips te New York to do some
shopping, devldod because her hut
baud had wade her a present of a
nfty-dollur bill which, with the uiom-y
she hud alreudy laid aside, wa suf
ficient fur her to make the Journey
now Instead ot later a aha hud In
tended. The matter of the money
which her bushund hud given her wa
merely on of the odd little surprise
he wa generally luvlshlng upon her,
and she had stuck tha bill with a pUi ,
Into the pincushion and decided then
and there not to postpone her trip auy
longer, and bad begun packing Imme
diately. KelNed at last, the hurry and ex
citement of the lust hour seemed to
fude to a mere nothing, and changed
from a bit ot annoyauce to a rather
pleasuut memory. Itemliilscvntty she
rehearsed the scenes In her mind. She
remembered how flustered she had
been, bow aha hod ordered the muld
about to do ber bidding, how she bad
literally thrown a few clothes Into her
traveling bag, how she bad taken a
most hurried leave of her husband.
She could remember distinctly having
at the last minute matched up the
Dfty -dollar bill from the pincushion
and thrusting It loose Into her hand
bag. And uow after all the confusion
and excitement and worry, here she
wa safe aboard the train, and ap
parently none the worse for the rush.
There were not many people In the
car. Two middle-aged gentlemen aat
three or four seats In front of her,
heatedly discussing some topic which
she could not overhear. Opposite wa
a rather young woman, oddly dressed,
whose eyea aeemed to wander restless
ly through tha rsr. llehlnd, a mother
and two smalt children were convers
ing tlreaomely, the mother endeavor
ing to answer patiently the questions
of a very talkative son.
When the train started Mrs. Rock
well purchased a magaslne and
passed an hour or two lu Ita perusal.
Then becoming thirsty she started
down the aisle for the water cooler,
aud It wa while drinking a glasa of
water that aha remembered having
left the handling In the seat and she
realised that thla wa a most careless
thing to do aa It contained all her
money. Hurrying back she saw with
some relief that the bag whs still
there, and, sitting down. Sirs. Rock
well, obeying some strsnge sudden im
pulse opened the bag and looked in.
The fifty-dollar bill waa not there I
She aat op rigid and stiff, gating
straight ahead ot her. She had been
robbed In that marvelously short time!
She could scarcely believe her seiises.
She searched the side coinrnirtim-nts
of the bsg, found her other mone
which she hsd parked away carefully
but there was no sign of the fifty-
dollar bill. She did not know what to
do. She glanced about her cautiously
and found the eyea of the oddly
dressed woman upon her; when Mrs.
Rockwell looked at ber she Immedi
ately glanced away.
Mrs. Rockwell was not a woman of
very decided character, and whs
rather easily excited. She lacked Uie
acumen which enables one to art
quickly, and she lost much time sitting
rather dasedly gazing ahead of her.
She waa at a toss whst to do, There
wa nothing particularly suspicious In
the attitude of these near her, yet the
only person- who could posslhly have
had the time and the chnnce to look
Into her handbag waa the woman
arrosa the aisle. Hut Mrs. Rockwell
did not relish the task of accusing
her openly, and had Just derided to
call the conductor and explain the
circumstances to him, when the lady
serosa the aisle anise and went to tlio
water cooler for drink, leaving a
black handling behind In her anat,
Acting on a strange swift Impulse Mrs.
Rockwell took a long chance. Glanc
ing through the car she saw that the
woman with the two children wn
very busily engaged with them and
that the men ahead were at the height
of their argument. So she noiselessly
slipped across the aisle, picked up the
handbag, annpped It open and there.
thrust In hurriedly amongst a confa
Ion of other things lay her flfty dol
Inr hill. Mr. Rockwell took It, re
turned to her seat, and calmly de
posited It In her own bug before Uie
The success ot ber Impulsive plan
did not surprise her so much as did
the extreme boldness of the other
woman. She had heard and read of
the hundred and one little robberies
that occur aboard trains, hut she had
alwuy believed them with rather a
shade of doubt. That in ordl
nnrlly Rood looking young worn
an, whose wearing apparel, to any
the worst of It, was of rather an odd
selection, should be so daring a to
actually try to commit robbery In the
space of time required for one to pa
down the aisle and take a drink of
water wna Indeed astounding. She
could rendlly appreciate that It wits
merely because the time was to limit
ed thnt the woman did not ransack
the whole bng and strip It of It mon
When the women returned to her
seat, ib rather carelessly pushed her
bag' to one side snd picked tip I book
which she had with ber and began to
read, leaving Mr. Rockwell to wonder
what kind of a criminal she was.
As she studied her, Mrs. Rockwell
thought the woman had a bard face.
There was nothing about It by which
one could Judge her age. The lack
of the faintest trace of wrinkle might
lead one to think she was young, but
the lips were too thin and the eye
gated about too calmly and too care
lessly for person of Inferior age.
Her easy manner, too, gave one the
suspicion that she had seen lot of
the world, and that It would take
a great deal to throw ber off her
guard. Vet there waa something about
the face that attracted Mrs. Rockwell,
and she found herself at times almost
pitying the. poor creature, and even
going so far as to advance to herself
the theory that posslhly she waa a vic
tim of kleptomania.
The gravity of the act she herself
had committed, or the possible conse
quences of It should she be apprehend
ed, did not once occur to Mrs. Rock
well. She wss one of those women
who move upon Impulse and never
top to anticipate possible results, and
It never occurred to her that If she
had been caught In the act of going
through the other' handbag her own
story of having first been robbed
would not bsv been credited by the
conductor, and the other woman bad
only to tell a simple little lie to put
Mrs. Rockwell In a very compromising
position. However, ah bad not bean
detected ; she bad made a really lucky
move, had recovered her fifty-dollar
bill, and waa Inwardly congratulating
herself tliat she bad done a clever
thing. And the rest of her Journey
was divided between patting beraelf
on the hark and watching the move
ment of thl woman acroa the aisle.
In New York the money went fait

She telegraphed her husband, and he

suddenly. "You didn't do much, did
