" "I'll ran the risk of that, " I answered and shortly afterword took my de- partmre. I conld not now complain of lack of interest in my life. It took me all my time to , keep the many details . of this case in mind. There was no doubt that I had already solved the mystery, and that Felix was guilty of his brother's death. -Yet, as Merrick said, it would be necessary to find the body and thus establish conclusive proof of the crime before the murderer could be convicted. When this was done, the evidence in band would be sufficient to insure his condemnation. For my part, I believed that he would be driven into a corner and forced to confess his complicity in the crime. Firmly convinced of this man's guilt, X^WttS determined he should not marry Olivia. The crime had been committed .lor her sake, and seeing that he bad behaved in so cowardly a fashion it was :a fit retribution that he should not achieve his purpose. It was no use to -warn Olivia as to the true character of Felix, as she firmly believed him to be Francis and would decline to believe my story. Under these circumstances I judged it advisable to see Felix at his chambers and warn him that I knew alL Terrified by the predicament in which he found himself, he might leave England, and thus Olivia would be saved from lifelong misery. His punishment for the 'crime would occur later on, as, notwithstanding his flight, he •could be arrested on the continent while •extradition treaties were in force. After dinner I therefore went to call on Felix. His looms were in Jcrruyu ••street, and on mine were just around the corner in Duke street I- hod not far to go. My visit was paid on the chancA of finding him in, as I did not wish to put him. on his guard by notifying him of my wish for an interview. As the twins, in ipite or constant disagreement, occupied tbo-same rooms, I could not bat wonder »t the nerve of Felix in coming back to •the apartments -where every familiar Object would remind him of his fratri- oidal act. It was just at 8 o'clock when I reached the door of tho chambers. At the foot of the stairs I found the caretaker ensconced in a glass box like on insect. To him I addressed my sell He was an old friend of mine and rather ait oddity in bis way. "Is Mr. Briarfield within?" "Mr. Francis Briarfleld is la his looms," said tho caretaker, "but Mr. Felix is in Paris." Of course I guessed that this would be the answer aud secretly admired the dexterity with which Felix had carried ont his plans. Doubtless in the end, when tdi brother did not return, or rather When his pretended self did not reappear, be would account for it by an ao- oideot in tho eastern deserts. However, my business was with Felix, alias Francis, BO I made no comment on the caretaker's remark. "Fray take up my card to Mr. Briarfield," I said. "I want to see him at once. " "I can't take it up. now," said the caretaker civilly. "Mr. Briarfleld is •engaged and gave particular orders that be was not to be disturbed. " "Ah, but doubtless he is engaged With a friend of wiwe," I hinted urn- 1>iguoui)y. "Is the lady a friend of yours, sir?" A lady I My thought* at ouoo revert«d to Rose Streut, but then the chances W«ro that it might bo Olivia. "Yes. MissBelUfl," "That's the young lady, sir, to whom Kr.

I know her well by sight* as she ho* been here with Mr* Bellini It's another lady,'' My oarmlso was right, and I felt con- fldeut that while I gUxxi there Felix WW having ou interview with hi*- accomplice. I could not disturb them, yet Wished to assure myself of the identity of Rose Stronfc Wheu I found ont all «bont her, (here might be « pomipiMiy of Halving the mystery.

In place of the waiting maid's linen dress, she was arrayed in a smart tailor inade costume and looked very fashionable indeed, Her face wore a triumphant expression, as though she had been successful with Felix, t guessed the interview had been for the purpose of extorting blackmail. With her kuowl* edge of his seeret Felix was certainly at her mercy, Following her up at some little distance, she wont down the Haymnrket and turned down one of the side streets, turned oft there into a dirty alley and A.uiog l?08e Strent qnd none other. finally disappeared into a swing door over which was a lamp inscribed with some letters. I looked up and saw written thereon, "Stage door." "An actress," said I and went round to the front of the theater to inspect the play bill It was the Frivolity theater, and they were playing the burlesque of "As Yon Don't Like It." Glancing down the list of characters, I saw that Orlando was played by Miss Rose Oer- non. "A leading lady," I thought, transfixed with astonishment "A burlesque actress doubtless, in the,receipt of a good salary. What in heaven's name took her to the Fen inn?" This question I was of course unable to answer, but I guessed it had something to do with love and Felix Briarfield. Leaving the matter alone for a few moments, I secured a stall and entered the theater. When Orlando came on, I was thoroughly satisfied. Rose Strent was RoseQernon, and I had seen her play the part of waiting maid at the Fen inn on the 10th of June, that fatal night of the murder.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 87.— Secretary Carlisle Monday a'cted in the matter of the allotment of the $80,000,000 I per cent bond bids which were opened at the treasury department Saturday. He accepted the proposals submitted by the syndicate represented by John A. Stewart of the United States Trust company of New York and others, to take tho entire issue at 1117.077. It is the expectation of the treasury officials that the deposits of gold for the payment of the bonds will be made very promptly and as the understanding is that none of tbe gold is to be taken from the treasury, on early restoration of the gold reserve to above the flOO.OOO.OOO mark will, be the result. The bonds, including premium, will realize to the government about $58,500,000 The gjstd balance, which is now in round numbers $67,«W,000, will, if the expectations of the officials regarding tbe deposits of gold bonds are borne ont, be increased to about $110,000,000. Before Monday there had been $4,650,000 in gold drawn from the subtreasnry at New York, presumably te be used in the payment of the bonds. Assistant Secretary Curtis learned during tbe morning unofficially that $3,000,000 In gold hod been deposited in thesnbtreas- ury for bond, payments. The bonds are deliverable as soon as the gold is depositor and as the bureau of engraving and printing boa been busy at work preparing for the issue, they will, it is expected, soon oaready for distribution. The denominations of bonds which ths syndi< oate will take are as follows: Coupons, $00, $W,OOOi $1W, $35,000; $1,1100, $»»,. 1*50,000; registered, fiO.OUO, flff.OUO.OdO. Ths condition* on which the bonds are accepted is known by tbe original pro- posol of Ihe syndicate, which is in tbe following terms, minus the names of the names of companies composing ths trust and the denominations wanted: "We hereby propose, under the terms of your circular of- Nov.

Postmaster General Submits His Annual Report, HE BtmOESTQ SEVERAL OHANOE3, Wotttit ttafrlta the tnw »» to Seeond Ol«)» M«tt»r— W«m« A(*lu*t |ieHm«tit«« the Po»t«t Anmt free DMlVery— !T«»nr* HeoUnl- fleatlon of R*ll«*r Mall 8er»le«. Nor. B8,— Postmaster General W. 8. Blsselt baa submitted to the president his annual report ending June 80, 1894. He briefly outlines the policy of the department as follows: In general t would recommend that the first and important thing to be done Is to revise the law as to second class matter so as to place the postofflce department upon. a Belt-sustaining basis. Second— Avoid expensive experiment* like the postal telegraph, rural free delivery, etc. Third — Develop the postal service on existing lines ot administration, viz: Extend free delivery in cities that now en- Joy it. Accord it to towns already entitled to it under the law. Quicken railroad transportation. Fourth— Revise and reclasslfy organization of the railway mail service and reclassify clerks in postoffice*. Fifth— Provide for district supervision of all postal affairs by appointment ot expert postal officials from classified service, as recommended in my last annual report. . Mr. Bissell first disoussea the effect of the continued depression upon the postal revenues and says: When advene business conditions prevail an ordinary establishment may overcome them in part by economies of management and retrenchment of expenditures. Not BO, however, with the poctofflce department of the government; it cannot and should not stop to consider little economies. Its duties and obligations to the public be- co/ndatonce intensified and enlarged. The revenue for the year was f7.'>,U8i>,- 47V, expenditures, |H^3*,414, leaving a deficit of $tf,2W,035. The estimate) for the current year rnding June 80, 1895, are: Revenue, fN4,427,748; expeaditmes, t9ti,890,4H5; deficiency, $5,971,737. The estimates submitted to the .secretary of the treasury for the next fiscal year are: Revenue, $88,1107,4.07; expenditures, $91,059,281-'; deficiency, ft,151,«7«. This annual deficiency, the postmaster general says, could be overcome by the increase of postal rates, but he does not believe this advisable. Economy has been practiced, but, nevertheless, great care hog been taken that it should not affect the efficiency of the service. The economies have consisted mainly in relettiug contracts for mail transportation and in the cost and amount of supplies; also in the abrogation of seven ot the 11 steamship contracts, which will mean a total saving in 10 years ot the contract's lite of $14-, 4Sl.!tt)t., Mr. Bissell recommends the experimental free delivery projects should be discontinued, and think* that free delivery in rural districts is not needed or desired by the people. Both of these project^ were originated by his predecessor. He refers to the war made by the department on lottery schemes passing under the name "Bond Investment companies," and says it has betn waged successfully. He recommends the enactment of laws covered in bills now pending before congress for the far* ther suppression of lotteries. Growth of tocoDd Ctaw Mill. One of the moat important and interesting features of Mr. Bissell's report is its discussion of class matter. In his last report he referred to the great disproportion of the growth of second class moil matter. Be has made a thorough investigation during th» year, upon wblob be says: "The effect of all this upon my mind is a conviction the statutes and the precedents upon which the. business now rests are defective; that they embody the only great abuse at present existing in the postal service; and that as this business Is growing all the time, some rem. edy should be applied." He gives figures for the past six yean showing that in IDtft) the weight of second class matter carried was Ua,<'00,. WO pounds and in 1898 it was 950,00»,. OUO. During the year llfflt there was carried 451,000,000 pounds of all mail matter of which 8M,000,UUO was second claw, the total being |8« i a07,(.73, an average of « oeuts a pound. Returns from postmasters show th»t the amount upon which pontsg*. at tb« tat« of I cent per pound was paid, was JiM,UbU,UOO pounds, the remaining «fl,000,(KKi pounds being matter carried free in the county of its publication. The cost of carrying the second class matter was |*),aW,OWO, while at the rate of 1 cent a pound the collections were f8,5t7,000, and IttJO.OOO special local rates in carrier cities, leaving a net loss to the government of fin,. »78,000. After giving these figures, the postmaster genera) otwtiumis: This calculation applies to transportation alone. The separate cost of distribution au4 delivery I shall not attempt to estimate, but any one cau see that those item* of expenditure would Iniyeljr swell the loss. I do not advocate a Bhangs of rates now apou legitimate newspapers and periodical luagaslns*. My purpose is to nrgs the withdrawal* oltba postage rats* from tho large cities and tn# protended period). cals that are now improperly enjoying them. Tho inast oownioaow olios of these periodical* are what are now generally known as serial paper oororeg hooks, They are in no sens* swUtl, however, except in name, Oeiug usually glr«n some such general designation w the "Fireside Burli*," "The Detective (library," or loiue other title of like Qha.ra.oter. They are nothing but books, pure uud simple, and wtatty o/tUeui very tmliy books at that, euoU oue dUUiiot in itself, the "serlea" never hoiug dovou 04 to anything lu particular, having few subscriber* »wl with yort-»l 8ubsorli>- now Iftfgrty enjoying the low postage accorded to second class mutter in what has got to be known as the "House Organ" being; simply a paper ot pamphlet devoted tnsfnly to the advertising of some mercantile, manufacturing of other establishment, but purporting to be devoted to trade, claiming a bonaflde list of subscribers, and nominally conforming to other conditions of second class matter. Th« bogus trad* paper, not devoted to the advertising ot any particular house is another Illustration of the satne abuse of the mails, After commenting on the great Increase In the mailing of fraternal insurance publications as second class matter and showing the enormous increase ot them since the act of congress admitting them, Mr. Bigsell suggests the remedy in the following: "If it be the policy of congress to continue the privileges of second class rates to benevolent or fraternal societies, then the remedy I would suggest would be an amendment of tbe law, limiting the rate to them and to legitimate newspapers and legitimate periodical magazines. 1 believe one year's experience under such limitations would demonstrate ' all legitimate newspapers and periodicat magazines may be transmitted to our mails from publishers Into the hands of subscribers free of all cost." DOM (Tat Favor Pottal T«l«g raph. The postmaster general does not favor the postal telegraph, a system advocated by his predecessor. The conditions of this country, he says, are such as would enormously increase the large deficit, He takes as example the system in Great Britain whiob is a comparatively small territory and shows that the postal telegraph entails a total annual loss of $3,000,000. He points out that in a country where the territory is so large, tbe cost ot a postal telegraph would far exceed any possible receipts or benefits. Mr. Bissell gives the following, daily average business of the department,' which shows tbe vastuees ot the postal service: Number of miles of postroate run, l.H-O.OiK); stamps manufactured, 8,80i),(K)0; envelopes manufaotnted,l,800,- 000; postal cards manufactured, 1,500,- OOU; pieces mailed, 15,700,000; letters mailed, 8,400,000; pieces of mail matter distributed and redistributed by railway postal clerks, 37,500,000; pieces handled in dead letter office, 34,000; daily transaction in money order business, )l,luO,OOU; daily expenses, tSBl.ldO. Tbe postmaster general believes in oivll service in the postofflce department, He says: "If the system bos produced such good results in the clerical force of the department, it is reasonable to inquire whether something like it could not be applied with advantage to the lower grades of postmasters." Mr. Bissell closes his report with a request that a new building be provided for the postofflce department. He says interest on the construction of an adequate building would be less than the amount of rent paid. Prominent Mathematician Dead. WASHINGTON, Nov. Utt.— James Main, a well known mathematician, is dead, aged 84 years. He was at one time pro- fasaor of mathematics in Edinburgh university and was sent by the British government to Cape Town, Africa, to conduct important astronomical observations.
