CHAPTER V. THE E VIDE NCR
POINTS TO ONE.
Monday tiljrht. The detective came
s I expected. I was up as soon as it
was light, and he came across the dewy
fields with 'his cyclopaedia under his
arm. He had stolen out of Phoebe
Dole's back! door.
He had me bring my father's pistol;
then he bade me come with him out
Into the backyard. "Now, lire It," he
aid, thrusting the pistol into my hands.
A I have said before, the charge was
till In the barrel.
"I shall arouse the neighborhood," I
Tire It," he ordered.
I tried; I pulled the trigger as hard as
I could. ...
"I can't do It." I said.
"And you are a reasonably strong
woman, too, aren't you?"
I -said I had been considered so. Oh,
much have I hoard about the strength
of my poor woman's -arms, and their
ability to strike the murderous weapon
Mr. bit took the pistol himself, and
drew a little at the trigger. "I could
do It," h said, "but I won't. It would
arouse the neiRhborhood."
"This Is more evidence against me," T
raid despairingly. "The murderer had
tried ro fire the pistol and failed."
"It Is more evidence against the mur
derer," said Mr.- Dlx.
We wtnt Into the house, where he
examined my box of clues long and
carefully. Looking at the ring, he
asked whether there was a Jeweler In
this village, and I said there was not.
I told him that my father oftener went
on business to Acton, ten miles away,
H? examined very carefully the but
ton which I had found In the closet, and
th?n ask?d to see my father's wardrobe.
That wss soon done. Beside the Suit In
which father was laid away, there was

tie other complete one In the closet In
its room. Beside that, there were In
;his closet two overcoats, an old black
frock coat, a pair of pepper-and-salt
trousers, and two black vests. Mr. Dlx
examined all the buttons; not one was
There was still another old suit in
the closet off the" kitchen. This was
examined, and no button rounu warning-
"What did your father do for work
the day before he died?" he asked then.
I reflected and said that he had un
packed some stores which had come
down from Vermont, and done some
work out In the garden.
"What did he wear?"
"I think he wore the pepper-and-salt
trousers and the black vest. He wore
no coat while at work."
Mr. Dlx went quickly back to fa
ther's room and his closet, I following.
(He took out the gray trousers and the
blnck vest, and examined them closely.
"What did he wear to protect these?"
"Why, he wore overalls!" I said at
once. As I spoke I remembered seeing
father go around the path to the yard
with those blue overalls drawn up high
tinder his rrnn.
"Where are they?"
"Weren't they In the kitchen closet?"
We looked ftfraln. however, In the
kitchen closet: we searched the shed
thoroughly. The cat came In through
her little door, as we stood there, and
brushed around our feet. Mr. Dlx
stooped and - stroked her. Then he
went quickly to the door, beside which
htr little entrance Was arranged," un
hoo'.ied it, and stepped out. I was fol
lowing him, but he motioned me back.
"None of my boarding mistress' win
dow) command us-," he said, "but she
might ccme to her back door."
A Professional Nurss Afflicted with
- Bright' Mscaso of the Kidneys
finds a Cure.
t ' (From the Buffalo News.)
Mrs. A. E. Taylor has resided In Buffalo -for
over forty years; her address is 250
Herkimer avenue; as a professional nurse
sne nan nunwu uuua iu neuun many a sui
ferer. Disease In all Its varied forms have
become as familiar to her as to the regu
lar practitioner. Her occupation is one
that taxes the strongest constitution, but
the fatigue of long watching and nuts
Ing at last brought her to a bed of sick
ness. Mrs. Taylor speaks of her com
plaint and cure as follows: "After being
confined to my bed for some time my dis
ease assumed such a serious aspect that a
doctor was called. He pronounced my
ailment Brlght's disease of the kidneys in
the third degree and a very bad case. My
limbs swelled up so that I could not wain
acress the floor, or, Indeed, help myself In
Any way. ' My face bloated up and my eyes
swelled so that the sight was badly Im
paired. This condition continued for near
ly two months without any marked Im
provement from the doctor's treatment,

out any lasting benefit until I felt like
finally giving-up In despair. Hearing cf
Dtan i Kidney t-ms i gave, mem a trial.
and-after taking three boxes I was able
to get up without assistance and walk,
something I had not done In months. I
continued asteadlly to Improve with tholr
- use. The swelling In my leg left, the color
returned to my face, changing from a
chalky, color to a healthy bloom. I now
consider myself entirely cured and I shall
never rest praising the little pill that
'saved me. - - . '
' "Doan's Kidney Pills .are certainly a
surprising discovery for kidney aliments.
I shall be glad to tell anyone of the won
rf ul car they performed on me."
For sal by an dealers price no cents.
' Stalled by Foster-Mllburn-Co., Buffalo, X.
I watched him. 'He passed slowly
along the little winding footpath which
skirted the rear of our house and ex
tended faintly through the grassy field
to the rear of Proebe Dole's. He
stopped, searched a clump of sweet
briar, went on to an old well, and
stopped there. The well has been dry
many a year, and was choked up with
stones and rubbish. Some boards are
laid over it, and a big stone or two, to
keep them In place.
Mr. Dix, glancing across at Phoebe
Dole's back door, went down on his
knees, rolled the stones away, then re
moved the boards, and peered down the
well. He stretched far over the brink
and reached down. He made many ef
forts; then he got up and came to me.
and asked me to get for him an umbrel
la with a crooked handle or something
that he could hook Into clothing.
I brought my own umbrella, the sil
ver handle of which formed an exact
hook. He went back to the well, knelt
again, thrust In the umbrella and drew
up, easily enough, what he had been
tlshing for. Then he came bringing It
"Don't faint," he said, and took hold
of my arm. I gasped yhen I saw what
he had my father's fclue overalls, all
stained and splotched with blood!
I looked at them, then at him.
"Don't faint," he said again. "We're
on the right track. This is where the
button came from; see?" He pointed
to one of the straps of the overalls, anfl
the button was gone. Some white
thread clung to It. Another black metal
button was sewed on roughly with the
same whole thread that I had found on
the button in my box of clues.
"What does it mean?" I gasped out.
iMy brain reeled.
"You shall know soon," he said. He
looked at his watch. Then he laid down
the ghastly bundle he carried. "It has
puzzled you to know how the murderer
went In and out, and yet kept the doors
locked, has It not?" he said.
"Well, I am going out now. Hook
that door after me."
He -went out, still carrying my um
brella. I hooked the door. Presently I
saw the lid of the cat's door lifted and
his hand and arm thrust through. He
curved his arm up toward the hook, but
It came short by a htlf foot. Then he
withdrew his arm, atfc thrust In my sil
ver handled umbrell.! He reached the
door-hook easily enoftgh with that.
Then he hooked it again. That was
not so easy he had to work a long
time. Finally he accomplished It, un
hooked the door again, and came In.
"That was how?" I said.
"No. it was not," he returned. "No
human being, fresh from such a deed,
could have used such patience as that to
fasten the door after him. Please hang
your arm down toy your side.
I obeyed. I looked at my arm, then at

strides down the yard, and was naclna
soberly up the street with his cyclo
paedia unuer hi arm.
I made myself a cup of coffee: then I
went about obeying the Instructions. I
read old letters all the. forenoon; I found
packages In trunks In the garret there
were quantities In father's desk. I
have selected several to submit to Mr.
Dlx. One of them treats of an old
episode In father's youth, which must
have years since, ceased to Interest him.
It was concealed after his favorite (fash

desk. It was written forty years ago.
by Maria Woods two years before my
father's marriflge and It was a re
fusal of an offer of his hand. It was
written in the stilted fashion of that
day; it might have been copied from a
complete letter writer."
My father must have loved Maria
Woods as dearly as" I love Henry to
keep that letter so carefully all these
years. I thought he cared for my
mother. He seemed as fond of her as
other men of their wives, although I
did use to wonder If Henry and I would
ever- get to 'be quire so much accus
tomed to each .other. .
Maria 'Woods must have been as
beautiful as an angel when she wad a
girl. Mother was not pretty she was
stout, too, and awkward, and I sup
pose people would have called her
rather alow and dull. But she was a
good woman and tried to do tier duty.

my first opportunity to etoey the sec
ond of Mr. Dlx's orders.' It seemed to
me the best way to. compare the averager-length
of arms was to go to prayer
meeting. I could not go about the town
with tny tape measure and demand of
people that they should hold out their
arms. Nobody Ttnows how I dreaded
to go to that meeting, but I went, and I
looked not at my neighbors' cold, al
tered faces, but at their arms.
I discovered what Mr. Dlx wished me
to, but the discovery tan avail nothing,
and it la one he could nave made him

When re were all going out I heard
several persons speak of Mr. Dla and his
Biblical Cyclopaedia. They decided that

Several asked Phoebe bow she was, and

at dawn. He reported, and Ij reported.
I showed (Maria Woods' letter. He said
he had driven to Acton and found; that
the Jeweler there had engraved the last
date In the ring about six weeks ago.
"I don't want to seem rough, but your
father was gqlng to get married again,"
said Mr. Dlx.
"I never knew him to go near any wo
man since mother died," I protested.
"Nevertheless he had made arrange

"Who was the woman?"
He pointed at the letter In my hand.

I got the box, and we compared them.
He had a number of pieces of blue sew

and they matched mine exactly.
"Where did you find them?" I asked.
"In my boarding mistress piece-bag."
I stared at him. What does It mean?"
I gasped out.
