Story of a Shield Pin, -
" r DO not like to take up personal
II cases, as we detectives call a cer
tain class of work, so when Miss
Angell of Broadside street sent for me
to take tip a "small personal mystery"
I responded with a poor grace.
Scarcely had she begun to tell bet
atory, however, than I became so in
terested that I begged her to continue
and tell me the details as far as possi
ble. Miss Angell was engaged to Mr.
Clond a peculiar combination of names
to beg-in with, and was devotedly at
tached to blm. In fact, she confessed
with tears in her eyes that his love was
mors, or had been more, than life to
The rest of the story I will let her
toll In her own words.
"Mr. Cloud," she said, "is in the habit
of calling on me almost every evening.
About a week ago he came to dinner.
Invited by mamma. He was to attend
a supper of the Phoenix Club at 10
o'olock. and wore evening dress.
"At the table we noticed an exquisite
shield pin he wore. It shoue so brll--Uantly
that it caught the eye at once.
Mr. Clond took the pin off and it was
passed around the table for us all to
"It was a shield as large as a quar
ter with the outside edge bordered with
pure rubles, blood red. all of a size and
without a flaw. The center of the
shield consisted of a large diamond
cut not very deep, yet too deep to be
sunken, so It was elevated In a wire
setting. Around the diamonds were
perfectly matched black pearls. The
combination was so unusual that we
exclaimed as we handled the jewel and
I remarked that I had never seen it
"When we had finished examining It
Mr. Cloud said: That Is my Phoenix
club badge. It belongs to the president.
When I was elected the badge was pre
sented to me by the members and when
I resign, and a new president comes in,
I must give up the badge to him. It
Is the president's badge, to be owned
by blm during bis term of office. Of
course, it is only to be worn at the
"Mamma spoke of Its great value.
Tea,' said Mr. Cloud, 'It is indeed very
valuable. It is worth thousands. If !
1 were to lose it I should feel ruined,
as I conld never hope to replace it.'
"As he spoke Mr. Cloud's face be
came very serious. 'We once had a
oase of that kind,' said he 'a most curi
ous case. The president lost his badge
and committed suicide next day. You
see he was suspected of having sold It.'
"After we had looked at the badge
and talked about It. I very foolishly
asked to wear it, and in a fit of way
wardness I reached across the table,
took it up and put It In the bow of rib
bon at my throat.
"At the close of the meal, Mr. Cloud
asked me for it, but I, to tease him,
said I meant to keep it. and ran up
stairs with it on.
"After they were seated In the parlor
I Stole quietly- down the stairs and
placed the pin In the lining of Mr.
Cloud's overcoat, directly under the
"I went back up to my room and
eame down stairs agaiu. I found
mamma and my sister seated alone in
the parlor. Mr. Cloud had gone out to
send a telegram. He would !e back
in a minute.
"When he returned, which was after
half an hour, he came in for only a
minute, to say good-by, he said, and to
ask for his pin: 'Come, Mazie,' be said,
you have teased me long enough. Let
me have the pin now. I must go.'
" 'I gave It back to you,' I said, 'an1
you have it now.
Then I stood up and running my
angers along the lapel of his coat felt
for the pin. It was gone!
"I turned as white as snow and as I
felt the color leaving my face, I said:
'I gave it back.'
"My mother looked up surprised and
Mr. Cloud stared at me. 'Yes, 1 gave
It back. I put it on your coat. You
mast have it.'
" 'Why, Mazie,' said Mr. Cloud, 'how
can you say so?'
"I pass over the disagreeable scene
which followed. I will not mention
Mr. Cloud's chagrin or my mother's
amazement, even as I explained how I
had stolen down the stairs and had
fastened the precious pin in the lapel
of the coat. Just for fun, and how I
Intended after teasing him to tell him
that It was there. As I talked I could
see my mother's Incredulous looks and
Mr. Cloud's absolute dismay. They did
not believe me!
"After the most painful quarter of
an hour which I ever expect to spend
Mr. Cloud left, shaking hands cordially
with my mother and saying a cold
good-night to me.
"After he had gone my mother said:
'Mazie, my darling girl, tell the truth.
It is not too late.'
" There is nothing more to tell,
mother.' I said. 'I have told you the
"After a while my mother saw that
I was In earnest and she lwlleved me.
But as next day came and passed, and
no word came from Mr. Cloud, I saw
that he doubted me. The third day
there came a formal note saying that

that fats should have played so na

But you must allow me to talk With
Mr. Cloud. That will be aksoMaaly
At this she became grectiy sssiniml,
but finally consented.
That same day I caUed on Mr. OlouO
and was received by him la his prtvata
office. He was not cordial, and I soon
saw that, while he would not accuse
the young .av, J9 Jiought she had

There, meeting an old friend, be bad
gone Into a cafe and taken a drink,
after which he had returned to the
house of his fiancee, having been gone
about half an hour.
"Tell mo the name of the cafe,'
Having carefully noted the
and addresses of all concerned during
that half hour, I left Mr. Cloud and I
will do him the Justice to say that I
think he was half-convincsd that he
might have made a mistake.
Going first to the telegraph office, I
walked from there to the cafe. At
that moment a wagon stood In front
of the door and they were bringing
out the soiled table linen.
An Inspiration came to me, and I much precious time but many a heart
said to the driver: "How often do you 1 ,cne as well. Christian Common
take away the linen?" ! wealth.
"Twice a week." said he. "But this !
week we bad a breakdown and wo are
late, and It's almost eight days."
As the driver started away I said:
"I want to search that load of napkins
and if you win drive them into that
vacant lot I will pay you well for your
Once in the lot I overhauled the con-
tents of the wagon thoroughly; and !
was finally rewarded by feeling a hard .
lump of something which hurt my hand :
as I pinched it.
Looking closer I saw tangled in the
fringe a glittering Jewel, which, as. I
extricated it, proved t be-the diamond '
set in the gorgeous pin which had been ;
so accurately described to me by Miss
I did not let the driver know of m) '
booty, but making an excuse that I (
could not find what I wanted, I walked .
away, nor did I stop until I had tele- ;
graphed to Mr. Cloud. A few minutes ,
later I sat in the parlor of Miss Angell's
residence talking to her. When I bad
told my story and laid the pin In her
lap her Joy knew no bounds. Just at
that moment Mr. Cloud was an
nounced, and Miss Angell then and
there gave blm the pin. I never saw a
girl so happy. She almost hugged me.
As soon as Mr. Cloud saw his mis
take be was humbly apologetic and
tried to fall at her feet, but she waved
him away, and Mrs. Angell delicately
suggested that, s his presence would
always remind them of a painful chap
ter, it would be better If he were to go
sway and stay away!
1 may add that when Mr. Cloud went
into the cafe the pin was in the lapel of
the coat, but, becoming entangled in
the fringe of his napkin, was pulled
out and would have been lost forever
had It not been for the perseverance
of the plucky Miss Angell. New Or
Growth of Human Hair.
Authorities Offer as to the rate of
growth of the human hair, and it is
said to be very dissimilar in different
individuals. The most usually accept
ed calculation gives six and one-half
inches per annum. A man's hair, al
lowed to grow to its extreme length,
rarely exceeds 12 or 14 inches, while
that of a woman will grow In rare
instances to TO or 75 inches, though the
average does not exceed 25 to 80
The most complete system of sun
worship that we have any account of
was that existing in Peru when discov
ered by the Spaniards in 1526. The
lncax, as the Peruvian monarchs were
called, claimed to be children of the
sun and his representatives on earth.
Their government was a despotic theoc
racy, of which the Inca was both high
priest and king. In Cuaco, the capital,
stood a splendid temple to the sun, in
which all the implements were of solid
gold. On the west end of the interior
was a representation of the sun's disk,
and rays In the same precious metaL
so placed that the rising sun, shining In
at the open east end, fell full upon the
image and was reflected with daesling
Bplendor. In the plaza or square Of
the temple a great annual festival was
held at the summer solstice. The mul
titude assembled from all parts of the
empire, and presided over by the Inca
Lwaited in breathless solemnity the
tirst rays of their deity to strike the
golden image In the temple when they
till prostrated themselves In adoration.
Sacrifices, similar to those of the Jews,
kvere offered on the occasion, and bread
nnd wine were partaken of in a manner
trlklngly resemblng the Christian sao-
ament. The moon as the spouse ol

It was so called. An exchange ven

question. The following will tell you
bow the term originated:
When Oliver Cromwell became pro
tector, after the execution of Charle
I., he caused the stamp of the cap ol
liberty to be placed upon the paper
used by the English Government. Soon
after the restoration, Charles II.,
having occasion to oe some paper for
dispatches, some of this Government
paper was brought to him.
On looking st it, and discovering the
stamp, he Inquired the meaning of it,
and on being told, he said:
'Take it away; I have nothing to dc
with a fool's cap."
The term "foolscap" has since been
applied to a certain size of glazed writ

more than the average barber does in
Mr. Whalen's clients are P. D. Ar
