In tin- pause which followed the do
teitive's (lecliinition. both men heard
the sound of slelsh bells.
"Tlie!M is Ir. Maxwell," exclaimed
tin .clergyman. ,-l know the bells. Can
we not prevent his useless journey?"
At the 'first words the detective had
run out of fhe i-ismi. Mr. Warren hur
ried' after- him. When he reached the
front door, .Mulligan was returning up
'1 called to him but he did not hoar
me," said the detective. "At any rate
lie did net Ktop. 1 should say that there
wouldn't In' much use in chasms the
team lie's ililviim."
'Mi'. Warren shook his head. The
doctor's horses were much the best In
"He'll drive to the junction. I rup-po.-ie,"
said Mulligan. "That's the only
place In these parts that a man can et
ii way from In winter. Very Rood. I have
half an hour to spare. Suppose I tell
"'.i what 1 know about this case'.'"
"Do. In Heaven's name! I can never
rest until it is all made clear."
"If you expect me to make it all clear
tonlKht," rejoined the detective. "I may
as well wai n you that you will be dis
appointed. This Is at once the sim
plest and the most complicated puzzle
1 ever saw, and I've had a hand in the
best that "Htn-ton could afford, including
the famous ISelicase."
"How do you know that the crime was
committed In this town'."' demanded the
clergyman. "1 hold ICdward Ames
KUilty, and yet you say that the story
that he was here was a lie. Why did
my daughter come here? Where did
Mho nu-et her murderer? Why did she
not come to me?"
"She cunie to you," said the detective,
gravely. "Indeed, the fact that she
did so Is almost my o.ily clew."
"What! she came here?''
"Mr. Warren, 1 don't want to startle
you, but It Is an uuiiuestluiiable fact
lluit, a little after nine o'clock last
night, your daughter stood outside that
window and looked in upon you as you
sat at work."
What would the grief-stricken man
have given in exchange for the power
to take that knowledge back with him
such a little way into the past? Ills
life, gladly, for it would have saved
"You can guess how I know this."
continued the detective. "It was. not a
difficult problem. Assuming that the
crime was committed here. I thought it
fair to believe that tile girl came to this
town of her free will. People are not
Say fills with My
parried around the country prisoners,"
In these days. P.elieving that, I knew
where to go for traces of her presence.
T have seen too many of such cases to
have, any doubt what she would do.
"So T made investigations under your
window. The snow was soft and wet
that night up to nine o'clock when the
cold snap set In. Her footprints, formed
in the wet snow, were perfectly pre
served. It was only necessary to brush
away an inch or two of light snow over
them. Then I made myjneasuremenls.
I had just completed them when a noise
that 1 made alarmed you In here, and I
had to get away. Hy the courtesy of
fnptnln Thompson I was enubled to
compare my measurements with your
dead daughter's shoes, and the result,
leaves no doubt us to the state of the
"Sir," wild Mr. Wnrron, "It sooms to
me that you solve this dark riddle com
pletely. At the time you mention, and
thereafter, the collln which was sup
posed to contain the body of Ned Amos
lay In his father's house. Who wntched
beside II? Who permitted my daugh
k ter'H body to be hidden In It?"
"There," said the detective, laying his
hand on the clergyman's arm, "you
touch exactly the point where the mys
Xjery becomes as dark as the tomb.
Here are the facts. It was Mr. Ames
who watched beside the coflin. We In
sisted upon It, find sent his son Frank
to bed after the latter had volunteered
for that duty. Frank was worn out
with his Journey and at last consented
to Jils father's arrangement."
"This Is madness," exclaimed Warren.
"It mukes Samuel Ames a party to this
crime. I'reposternus! I have known him
thirty' years and I would stake my life
that he had nothing to do with this."
"So would 1." responded the detec
tive, icnlmly, "though I've known him
ohly a few hours. When this case stood
in my mind as It stands now In yours,
I own that I was stumped. Itut I
knew there was some way out, for the
facts were plain. If the girl wns here
on Thursday night "she couldn't have
been murdered In lioston several days
before. You see, from the llrst It looked
doubtful whether the crime could have
been committed there, for In that case
why was the coflin ripped open after
having been once closed?"
"I had thought of that, and It had
seemed to me possible Ami might have
feigned death by the use of drugs nnd
have permitted himself to be put Into
, the cntlln."
"No, lr; not Into that coflin.' He
wouldn't have lived In it five minutes.
It was airtight. No, I say again, that
explanation wouldn't stand. The deed
wns done on Thursday night In this
town, and the bodies were exchanged"
I''""'! (L I'l I T I'
- If - UJ I d
"Hxchanged! Then you believe that
Xed Ames is really dead?"
"1 don't know. It's barely possible.
However, the essential point is that
your daughter's body was put Into that
collln in the Ames house on Thursday
"While Samuel Ames sat by and per
"Xu; while he was asleep drugged
"Urugged? Are you sure if that?"
"What he says makes It practically
certain. He remembers the lift. t hour
alone beside the collln. Then he knows
nothing until he found himself sitting
there with the light of early morning
sireuming into the room. lie wan
ashamed to own that he had slept, and
so he said nothing' abuuit It until 1 ques
tioned hiiii. Then he described his ex
perience, and his sensations as awaken
ing in such a way as to make me per
fectly confident that he was drugged;
and the thing that makes his story
certainly true is that he described the
effect of u drug about which I'm sure
that he knows nothing at all. It's a
mixture of chloral and one or two other
poisons of that class."
"How was it administered?"
"ICaslly enough. There's a pitcher of
water and a glass on the table In the
dinlng-ioom of the Ames house every
morning. Mr. Ames drank from that
glass about ten o'clock. Of course the
drug was In it. Now. the man who put
It there is the murderer, but the trouble
is that any man In own could have done
it. Secret entrance to that room was
perfectly easy on tha evening."
"Might not the drug have killed Mr.

such awful sin. How can human beings
do such deeds?"
"It's beyond nu , but they can. How
ever, there wasn't much danger of k'J'.l
ims Mr. Ames. The man who used the
drug was evidently skilled In Its use."
"Could anyone not trained in medicine-,"
Warren began, and stopped
The detective looked keenly at the
"I see what you mean," he said.
".No, no; It was merely a horrible fan
cy. My mind Is strained to the verge
"His Might looks bad." said Mulligan.
"Flight? Whose Might?"
"Cum. Mr. Warren, let's not fence
with each other. Dr. Maxwell has got
out of town In a hurry."
"I won't hear of such a thing.' What
motive is possible? The mere fact that
a drug was skillfully employed is not
Hand on the nook."
"Certainly not. Thieves use it."
"And Kdward Ames w.is a tWef."
"Hut we don't kn.w that lie was here.
Come, let's see what we do know. Your
daughter ran away fivm In cite some
years ago. You've never been able to
litul any trace of her. Didn't you look
too far av.ay from home? A Mr" I loft
the cemetery I communicated by wire
with an assistant of mine who was in
the Junction, which is the nearest con-
Hklerable town In this place. He was
on 'his way here. In reply to my ques
tions, he wi'ivd 'that Charlotte Warren
was seen there Thursday afternoon,
liu-t he couldn't find out how she got
t'cre. Nkw what do you say to the
theory that she's been here all the time?
And If so, wh ut young man of this place
has made most freipient visits to the
Junction? Wiho' got the speediest
team ofhorses In this place?
"Well, that's only a theory, and I
hope that Maxwell -is all right. Hut
remember that 'you never knew on
whose account Chuvlotte left her home,
"I have always believed that Kdwnrd
Amos was guilty. If she loved Max
we.ll, whywtre they .not honorably mar
lied? 'On the other hand, she knew
there was mi hope of my consenting
to her union with Kdward Ames."
"Will, I give that up. We don't
know enough yet to consider such iues-toiitt-with
any hope of getting anything
