with him Into his study.
" 'Well, my lad,' said he. 'what Is It?'
" 'I've come about that watch of
yours,' said I, 'I think I can lay my
hands on it.'
" 'Oh, it was ynu that took It," said he.
"'No, I answered; 'I know nothing
whatever about how you lost it. I have
been sent by another party to see you
about it. Kven If you have me arrest

"'Well,' he said. 'I don't want to be
hard on you. Hand it over, and here Is
my cheque for the amount.'
Lheques won t do, said I; 'I must
have It In gold.'
" 'It would take an hour or so to col

" 'That will Just suit,' I answered,
"for I have not got the watch with me,

"I started olT, and got the watch
where I had left It. When I came back
the old gentleman was sitting behln 1
his study table, with the llttL- heap of
gold in front of him.
Here is your, money,' he said, and
pushed it over.
" 'Here is your watch,' said I.

"'I wouldn't tell you in any case,1
raid I: 'but especially I wouldn't tell
you when you have a wltnes hid behind

about me, and It didn't escape me that
1he curtain was drawn tighter than It

There was one rather curious Incident
which occurred In my career. You may
possibly have seen the anecdote, for It

"Pray le me hear It," sad I.
"Well, It Is) hard lines telling stories
against one's pelf, but this was how It
happened: I had made a rather good
haul, and Invested some of the swag In
buying a very fine diamond ring. I
thought it would be somethng to full

gone and times were hard. I had Just
purchased it, nnd was going back to my

to her at first; but after n- time some

It struck me that I could not puss the

by making this purse.my own. I hud

Job was over. Just at his moment she
rose abruptly to leave the 'bus, and I
had hardly time to got my hand with
the purse in It out of her pocket without
teotion. It was not until she had been
gone some time that I found out Ithatt in
draivlng out my hand in that hurried
manner the new and Ill-fitting ring had
slipped ovw my linger and remained In
the young lady's pocket. I sprang out
and ran In the direction in which she
had gone with the Intention of picking
her pocket once again. She had dis
appeared, however; and from that day
till this I have never Beit eyes on her. To
make the matter worse, there was only
four pence half-penny in coppers In
side the purse. Sairve me right for try-
ng to rob such a pretty girl; still. If I
had that two hundred quid now I should
no be reduced to Good heavens, for

He seemed Inclined to relapse into
silence after this; but I was determined
to draw lilm out a Jittle more. If I could
possibly manage It. "There Is less per

one of the lumber rooms If we could
only find a method of reaching the roof,
we might force a way securely from

a good one. and it had a spice of origin
