A Ql'ESTION.OP TIMR.
"This hit of paper .wn caught upon
the weapon thut pierced your uncle's
heart." he said. "1 have the weupon
hero.v . .
"Not Norman' stiletto!" I filed, re
membering; that he hail taken It.
"There was no Htlletta In the cane,'
tie nalil. "The weapon was a peaceful
implement suddenly' perverted to a
tli aillv use. There it stands."
' lie Indicated an ordinary spindle on
which .documents are spiked, it was
sliniilv n bit of steel wire about five
indies lone, mounted upon a metal
standard,- and sharply pointed at the
end.
"1: was all done In a moment of pas
slnii., said the detective. "Your uncle
held that fatal contract In his hands.
It was .liurninfr- The spectacle and
your uncle's words at the moment must
have maddened the murderer. He
struck suddenly and surely with the
first thlnB that came to his hand. Wll
lnrd' rnvls fell mortally hurt. As he
fell, liis head struck the corner of his
desk a violent blow. Thus, doubly
wounded.' he lay tiKin the lloor. The
null det er' bent over him and slowly,
fearfully, withdrew the weapon.
Why, did he do that'.'"
"!ecnuse that bit of paper was pinned
down upon the victim's heart. The
murderer dared not leave It there. He
secured It at the cost of wetting his
hands, with blood. The paper was
staked. It would not burn. Distract
ed with fear, the murderer rolled the
paper In his hands and thrust it down
the escape pipe,' where, fortunately for
me, it lodRed. Then the criminal
washed- his hands, dried them on that
towel. nnd walked out of that door."
"What are you telling me-."' I ex
rlulmed. "This is all new. What has
become of the theeiry which you ex
plained to me with such care my un
cle struck down, the door locked with
his keys, the pnper taken, the fatal

revived while Stalbridee and I were at
the dour." .
"1'n to the time when I wns ten years

truthful boy. Then I happened to no
vtlee that lyinjr was not directly prohib

J have mnde it a point never to tell the
truth unless there Is a very pressinc

"Let me show you why," he said

remained with his victim nearly half
an hour. Is that credible :
"It Is not." replied tne ueiecinr.
'But 1 .can solve your difficulty. In

I measured the time. It is rather pret-
lile led me to the bowl beneath the
glass, and called my attention to the
fact that there was a amau lean
the faucet. He asked me to observe
the steadiness of it. and then attempt
to place the faucet in such a position
that there would be a different rate of
leakage. I found that the thing could
not be done. The faucet worked by a
law of its own. and wherever placed.
It would spring at once to the position
it seemed to prefer.
"Just after the crime," said Johnson,
"when you and I bend over this bowl
looking for bloodstains. I noticed that
leak. Instantly I marked 'the level of
the water In the bowl. Afterwards I
experimented and found that the ttmt
required for the bowl to be tilled to
that point was fifty-two minutes. Take

I..QV..M tuentv-six minutes. Now add
four minutes for the time taken by the
mni'ilei-er in wusliliiir his hands. That
makes Jusi half an hour that your
uncle lved."
"This Is guess work." said I. "How
do you know that the murderer left no
water in the bowel?'.'
"Because, my dear sir. the last thing
he did wus to push down this lilt of
paper, and he wouldn't have done that
w hile there was water in the bowl. He
didn't let any run afterwards, other
wise the paper would have been soaked,
lie pushed It In. supposing that it
would fall down the pipe. Then he re
placed the stopper or It fell into place
and my timepiece was In operation.
"Now as to the closing of that door.
Watch this little experiment. I open
the door thus. Now will you oblige
me by opening the main door suddenly.
Thanks. You perceive the draught
of air shuts this one. It fastens Itself.
I've replaced the lock you broke, and
everything is us It was. Ho we've dis
posed or your delusion that you were
right on the heels of the murderer."
I was considerably perplexed by tills
sudden change of theory. It wns hard
to esmape the detective's reasoning In
regard to the time of the commission
of the clime, yet there were several
points thut needed explanation. For
instance, how could the door have been
locked on the inside with my uncle's
kevs' I heard them drot) out of the
lock. Who hud put them Into it?
It was Air. Davis himself." said
Johnson, when 1 put the iiuestlon to
him; "he was tiylng to get out. Doubt
less he was feebly crying for help, but
no one heurtl. Those murks of hands
upon the door were Ills. The position
shows thut they were mude by some
one who wus supporting himself with
dlliiculty."
"He ciitild not open the door and for
a very good reason. Dazed and dying,
he hud selected the wrong bunch of
keys. I got the right one out of his
pocket and the key of thut door wns
on it.
"And that's the great point of this
case. The door wus locked not
with Mr. Davis' key, lor otherwise it
would not have been in his pocket.
There Is but one other, und that be
longs to "
"rftiilliriilge!" I exclaimed.
Correct, and beyond a doubt Stul
bridge is the murderer."
"My instinct told me so, even when
I believed absolutely that I knew hltn
to be Innocent."
"And now for the reason why I de
ceived you." continued the detective.
"At llrst 1 acted on general principles.
My theory propounded in this room
was intended to deceive everybody.
Afterwards I acted for the sake of the
effect upon Stalhiidge. I did not know
him to be guilty, but 1 strongly sus
pected him. I had heard 'of his stop
ping you and taking you for a walk.

if he had anything to say, why didn't
he bring you up here? Or take you
into one of the rooms of the I'lilnn

wanted to keep you out of the way.

Hoon he saw that it wus to be his own

The closing door, the wound in the
heart everything seemed to indicate
that the crime wns but Just done.
Then he could prove an nllhl through
vmi !
"instantly the desire to convict Nor
man seized upon him. He was Nor
man's rival for .Miss liavls' hand,
and had worked 1 that cause as well
as for money in getting your uncle Into
nin power. It wup 111 111.1 imui mm
he should plot to convict Norma n, for 1
he was more likely to be led Into nil j
indiscretion. And the surest way to
keep him at it was to satisfy himself
of liis own safety to make him
over-confident. For that reason I
worked upon you. He would not
have believed me, but he put faith
in what came to him through you.
He knew you to be his bitter enemy,
and nothing could sustain hltn so much
as your confidence in his Innocence.
"Meanwhile I had Norman more or
less under suspicion. I knew that he
had been here, though I was not aware
that Htalbrldge was present at the same
time. Xou forced that out of Stal
brldge and also the very valuable and
singular alibi for Norman."
"How about the Italiun?"
"He was saved by my water clock.
He could account for himself up to
the time when he entered this building
and that time was absolutely known.
It was three minutes before eleven.
The crime was committed five minutes
earlier. Judge, then, of my satisfac
tion when you remembered seeing An
tnnelll. Htalbrldge was with you at
that time. He had just appeared.
He had time to leave the scene of the
crime, to leave the building by the
side door, to see you approaching, and
to stop you in order that ynu might not
find the body.
"To Stalbridge, then, nil clews lead.
He will be here presently anH you
shall see how he faces the accusation."
"Is he under arrest?"
"No; but ho Is shudowed. He will be
arrested If he does not keep the ap
pointment which he has with me here,
lfevis overdue." '
JohtiNon glunced at his 'watch and
then stepped to the door: I saw him
start. His face ruddenly Hushed.
, "Come here." he cried.
A slender young man in rather shab
by dress stepped quickly to the door.
"Where's Htalbrldge?" he gusped, ah
he glunced Into the room.
"11 haunt been here," returned
Johnson. "My heavens. Mack, you've
lost him."
"Not on your life. I shadowed htm
to this room." i"
"He did nut come tn. The man has
escaped. He got onto you and took the j
alarm.
Mack, the shadow, struck his fore
head with his right hand.
"Is it possible that he got in there?"
he said, and then he pointed to the
door of the vacant suite. "If he did, he
hasn't had any chance to get out."
Johnson and I rushed Into, the rooms.
They were empty. The window open
ing Into the shaft was open.
"By all the saints!" exclaimed the
detective. "The fellow has climbed into
the back room and has heard all I have
said." r
We ran back and passed into the rear
room, leaving the shadow on guard In
the hall. Stalbrldge wan not there, but

Their secondary ef

bowels open and

is the case with
other pills. Hence, their great popularity
with stifterets from habitual constipation,
piles and their attendant discomfort and
manifold derangements. The ' Pellets "
are purely vegetable and perfectly harmless
in any condition of the system. No rare is
required while using them: they do not
interfere with the diet, habits or occupa
tion, and produce no pain, griping or shock
to the svstetn. They act in u mild, easy and
natural way and there is no reaction after
ward. Their help lasls.
The Pellets core biliousness, sick and

constipation, sour stomach, loss of appetite,
coated tongue, indigestion, or dyspepsia,
windy belching. " hrattbtirn." pain and
distress after eating, and kindred derange

In proof of their superior excellence, it can
be truthfully said, that they are always
adopted a a household remedy after the
first trial. Put up in sealed, glass vials,
therefore always fresh and reliable. One
