JUST A WORD OR TWO.
We want to talk with you a few minutes—You know us but
do you know there are hundreds of people in Butler, Co. ivho do
not know we are in Butler, il they did we would have to enlarge our
store to let the crowd in. Why what do you think. Nearly one half
the people who come into our store didn't know we made harness,
while we have been running that part of our business for two years
with a capacity of 10 sets per day, but we are glad to know they art
pleased to find it out as it saves them money and will save you
money if you mind it. However we did not intend talking about
harness more than to say that we make all kinds of harness and parts
of harness at less than factory price. It was surries and buggies we
wanted to tell you about. We have a larger stock than we have had
at any time for fifteen years. We liav'nt a last year surrey in the
house. Don't buy old slock, they are old style, and every year grow
more so. Buy the latest design and be in fashion especially when
you can buy them for less money than others charge lor old style
work, is for the price, whoever heard of anyone paying too much for
anything bought here.We hav'nt in our employe asalesman with whom
we would be afraid to send SIO,OOO to Europe, when you deal here
you know you are dealing with a reliable firm and you know just
what you are getting, and also know the price is lower than you
could get any where. Come and sec us and have the satisfaction of
knowing you have been in the largest store of the kind in the state.

MR. BARXF.s' NARRATIVE.
"Gentlemen," began Mr. Barnes, j
rising, "I am only an ordinary man, j
■ following a profes-icp »t which 6ome
■ are disposed to sneer, hut which to mo ;
' =eems but the plain duty of one who is j
endowed with the peculiar qualities j
that are essential to the calling. Our j
host would make a magnificent detect

' a higher dnty to perform. Begging yon,
then, to forgive my manner of address
■ ing yon, being by no means a speaker,
I will tell yon the little that I hav
done, prefacing my remarks by saying
; that without tho valuable assistance of
Mr. .Mitel- 11 should have been power
"There was a enrions button which I
rfrnmt in the roum where the anite

I set owned by Mr. Mirchel si cl -ely
that it seemed to me to point to him as
one who had a guilty knowledge. I
spent much time following tho clews
that turned up in that c nnection, all
..f which, however, was not entirety
misspent, for I discovered the true name
of the dead woman to be Rose Montal
l>on, and that aided me greatly in my
lat«.r work. At last, then, I abandoned
the idea that Mr. Mitchel was guilty
and frankly admitted this. He then told
me the name of the jeweler from which
tho buttons had been ordered, and I
went across tho Atlantic.
"The button which I had was imper
fect. This was my starting point.
Through letters of introduction which
Mr. Mitchel gave me I succeeded in ob
taining the assistance of the jewelers.
Th% gave mo tho namo of the man who
had carved the cameos for them, but
they knew nothing of the imperfect but
ton. They had also lost track of the
cameo cutter. It took mo over a month
to trace that man, even with the aid of
the Paris police. Finally I found him,
and he told me that he had sold the
He drained his wineglass.
button to a friend. This friend I found
after some delay, and he admitted that
he had once had rtie button, but that he ;
had given it to a woman. More time j
was lost in discovering this woman, but j
when I did she, too, recognized the ,
button and said that it had been stolen j
from her by another woman, whom she
described as a creole. Thus at last I got
on tho t»'ick of the Montalbon, for that
was the namo which she used in France, j
J Under this name it was easier to follow
her. I soon learned that she had a com
panion, of the name of Jean Molitaire. |
I then easily found that Molitaire had
been in the employ of the Paris jewel
ers as shipping clerk It was he who
had written the two descriptions of the
jewels, one > f which I found among the i
woman's effects and the other in Mr.
Mitchel's possession. This was a suspi- :
cious circumstance, but wo know now
how it was that the handwriting match
ed, a fact which had puzzled me great- |
ly. It seems that Mr. Mitchel at one
time had bought some valuablo papers
from the Montalbon woman, paying her
with diamonds and recommending her
to his Paris jewelers to dispose of
"That," said Mr. Mitchel, "was
partly to get her out of this country
and partly to recover tho diamonds, i
which I did, through the dealer."
"So ho told me. It was when she re- i
ceived the money from them that she '
noticed Molitaire. It was not long after
that the second set of jewels wero sold .
to Mr. Mitchel. This clerk, of course, j
knew of the transaction, because he
packod them for shipment. Then ho
must have persuaded the woman to ac
company him across the Atlantic, with j
the design of stealing the gems from Mr.
Mitohtl as soon as he should tako them
from the custom house. This is seen
from the fact that throe days after tho
shipment this man resigned his posi- j
tion, and from that time all trace of
both tho man and tho woman in Paris !
"From which you deduco that they
followed tho jewels?" said Mr. Mitchel.
"Of course. Tho man and woman
separated hero to avoid suspicion. By a
trick the woman obtained possession of
apartments in tho very house where
your intended lived, while Molitaire
stopped at tiie Hoffman, which, of
course, is very near your own hotel. As
soon as you went to Boston they follow
ed and registered at the same hotel.
You obtained tho jewols from the cus- ■
torn house, and they entered your room
and robbed you during your absence.
Your theory of tho murderer's actions
after tho jewels were recovered by you
is probably correct. He vent back to j
hunt for them, hoping that slio had not 1
placed them in the satchel or rather
that she had taken them out of it, since i
you yourself placed them there. I think
there is no point left unexplained."
"Pardon me," said Mr. Thauret, "I
think you are wrong. You have not to
my mind quite connected this man—
What did you call him? Jean Molitaire, 1
was it not? Well, I do not see that you
"have traced his hand to tho crime."
"I think that I have," said Mr.
"Xou do not make it clear to me," !
Buid Mr. Thauret, as coolly as though
discussing some question in which ho
had hut a passing interest. "You say
that your Montalbon woman noticed
this Molitaire when she sold her dia
monds. Later that both missing
from Paris. Tho woman turned up in
New York, but how do ycu prove that
Molitaire did not go to —let us say Rus
"No," said Mr. Barnes, "he did not
go to Russia. Suppose that I should tell
you that I ferreted out the fart that this
name Molitaire v.-, but an alias, and
that the man's true ne«;..- was Moutal-
Von? Then, when wo remember that the
Roman's name had been cut from all
her aarmeuts, is that not significant?" i
This speech made a mild sensation,
but Mr. Thauret remained unmoved.
Ho replied calmly.
"All things are significant—how do
you interpret this fact, supposing that
you could prove it?"
"This Molitaire was really the dead
woman's husband. They quarreled ;
laany years ago, and sho went to New |
Qrleans, where she kept a gambling j
Jtouse, having learned the trade from '
tiui. \Vheu they met again in Palis

controversy. "Being the woman's hus

1 proeuro in Paris tho photograph of
Molitaire, left by accident in his room
at his lodgings, and when I recognize
that as the same man whom Mr. Mitch
el suspected and trapped into stealing
the ruby, and when upon my return to
New York I find that ruby upon that
very man and recover it, then we have
some facts that do count."
"You recovered tho ruby?" said Mr.
"Here it is," said Mr. Barnes, hand
ing it to Mr. Mitchel. Mr. Thauret bit
his lip, and by a strong endeavor re
tained his self control.
"Mr. Barnes," said Mr. Mitchel, "I
am sorry to disappoint you, but this is
not my ruby."
"Are you surer" asked tho detective
with a twinkle in his eye.
"Yes, though you deserve credit, for,
though not the ruby, it is the stolen
stone. I have a complete set of dupli
cates of my jewels, and in making my
little experiment I did not care to bait
my trap with so valuable a gem. I
therefore used the duplicate, which is
this. But how have yoti recovered itr"
"I have been in New York for sever
al days. I have devoted myself during
that time to a personal watch upon
Montalbon. Yesterday, to my surprise,
he went to police headquarters and beg
ged for a permit to inspect the stolen
jewels, saying that through them he
might throw some light upon the mys
tery. His request was granted. Suspect
ing treachery, I subsequently obtained
a similar permit, and investigation with
the aid of an expert showed that the
bold scoundrel had handled tho jewels,
aiul su managed to change the imita
tion stone which Le stole at the festival
for the real one in the set which figured
in the train robbery.''
"By Jove," said Mr. Mitchel, "he is
an artist. Then I am indebted to yon
after all for recovering tho stone? But
tell us how did yon accomplish it?"
"I overheard Montalbon once say that
a wise thief would keep a stolen article
upon his person, so that it could not be
discovered without his knowledge.
Therefore I felt certain that he would
himself adopt this method. When the
conversation this evening reached a
point where it was evident that all
would be disclosed, the man, who is
present, dropped the ruby into his glass
of burgundy, where it would bo out of
sight and easily recovered or swallowed.
L:;ter ho attempted to dispose of it in
this way, but I quickly drank his glass
of wine, the ruby thus passing into my
mouth. And now, Mr. Montalbon, I
arrest you in the name of the law." Say
ing which the detective pnt his hand
upon Mr. Thauret's arm. Tho other
guests jumped up, excited and expect
ing a scene. To the astonishment of all,
Thauret remained quiet for a few mo
ments, and then, speaking slowly and
"Gontlemen, we have heard several
stories here tonight. Will you listen to
mine and suspend judgment for a few
"We will hear you," said Mr. Mitch
el, marveling at tho man's nerve. The
others resumed their seats, all except
the detective, who stood just back of
"I will trouble you to fill my glass,"
said Thauret to tho waiter, and after
being served ho coolly sipped a mouth
"I shall not bore you with u lengthy
recital," he began. "I shall simply
mako a statement. Society, the civilized
society of today, frowns upon and pun
ishes what it terms 'the criminal class.'
Yet how many have ever examined
into the existing state of things and
analyzed tho causes which make tho
criminal a possibility? The life of such
a man is not an inviting that one would
adopt it from choice, one I mean who
had moral instincts. With the naturally

course. But if ouu bo born immoral,

to similar causes. Such a man 1 am. I

A rica Works the Hammer.
At. Essen, Germany, in the great
Krupp gnn works, which are situated
at tliat place, there is a hammer that
weighs oft tons. This hammer works in
connection with an anvil weighing 80
tons, which, in turn, is placed on an
anvil b! :k weighing 120 tons. Profess
or Schumann, a "trained flea man" of
Bern, Switzerland, visited Essen and
the great war machine works a few
years ago. Upon returning home he set
about, making a model of the great
hammer which should be complete in
every detail, but on snch a minute scalo
that the hammer could bo raised by a
flea instead of by a 100 horsepower eu
gino, as in the original. In its completed
state this wonderful miniature model,
—frame, hammer,'pulleys, etc.—weighs
but Igrains! The hammer and anvil
are both of solid gold, the pulleys Ger
man silver and the framework plati
num. A flea, trained by Mr. Schumann,
the maker of the model, will, at the
word of command, hoist the hammer to
the top of tho frame, where it is auto
matically set free, descending in pre
cisely tho same manner as the monster
after which it was modeled. —St. Louis

Professor William D. Murks, speak

said: "He does not think of letting up

he was through with the ore concen

the laboratory and push electricity as
far as he could. During the last year or
so, while busy with the ore concen
trator, many thoughts and ideas as to
improvements in the various forms of
electrical machines and uses had occur
red to him, bat ho had simply made a
note of them and put the matter aside
until his return to the laboratory. Some
of them that he mentioned to me were
startling. If he lives a few years longer,
tho world can bo suro of many new in
ventions. Among other things that he
will follow up he mentioned the fact
that he had thought out a means of pro
ducing incandescent, light at half of its
present cost. This is a wry important
matter, needless to say. He says he had
experimented enough to satisfy liimself
