The window was that of a drawing-room, as he knew from the result of much, careful study of £he house. The time, and the fact that the drawing-room was apparently unlighted, made it practically certain that Lord and Lady Hardway were at dinner. Again Mr. Herridge smiled, and, with a preparatory gesture, rubbed his gloved hand against his thighs. He stepped back a couple of paces and suddenly leapt into the air-,, to wards the stone wall of For an instant his fingers sough frantically for some support, bu failed to find it. Without a sound he alighted one more upon the balcony. He moved a couple of feet farther to the left and leapt again. This time his fin gers found a ledge, and curled rpun it like .steel clamps. With a, swif movement he raised himself unti one foot was on the ledge. A set ond's groping with outstretchec. arm, and he found the sill of the window above him. Very cautiously he straightened himself until his feet were on the. ledge, and' bands upon the window sill. He had now no fears of being observed from the Square. The fog was far too thick for the most powerful lamp to reveal him at such a height from the ground. But it would not do to be too precipitate. There were servants in the house, and it was necessary for him to discover what he could of their movements. So, absolutely motionless, he remained where he was, apparently perfectly at ease in his precarious position; Suddenly a bright streak of, light split the dark outline of the window vertically in half. The curtains were not fully drawn, half an inch separated them. Thru the slit thus caused he could see every detail of he room, and the figure of the .maid who had just entered it and switched on the light. She bustled about for a few minutes, turning jack the cover of the bed, laying out night clothes, tidying up the Are You Suffering in Vain?

' · Mr. Herridge waited for a couple jf minutes, in case she should have forgotten anything. Then, having one hand on the sill, with the other he applied a small polished steel instrument to the hasp of- the window. There was a faint click, and very cautiously he raised the window sash until there was enough room for his body to pass. He dived in head first- alighting noiselessly on his hands. Here he remained, with his ear against the floor. The only footsteps which he could hear were those of the maid, and these were some distance away along the corridor. He drew himself to his feet, produced an electric torch and a bunch of curious looking keys, an glided across the room to the heai of the bed. The safe had been cunningly hid den In the panelling of the room but Mr. Hecridge had 'no difficultj in finding it. He fingered a boss on the panelling, which'under his touch slid aside, revealing an orifice beneath. Into this he inserted one o: his keys, only to withdraw it and try another. At the third attempt thi lock yielded, and a portion of the panelling' swung back, revealing a small jewel safe, steel lined. Into this he inserted his hand, and withdrew a massive leather case. A glance inside it revealed that the neckless was in its place. With a swift movement Mr. Herridge concealed the case about his person. He relocked the safe, and left the room the way he had come, shutting the window behind him. His ingenious instrument was incapable, of closing the hasp; this evidence of his entry was forced to leave behind him. He reached the balcony, put on his joots and coat, and lowered himself :o the pavement once more. Then, quietly and without hurry, he began ;o waik towards the ,corner of the Square. He had been only just in time. The fog was beginning to lift, with :hat amazing: rapidity which characterizes London fogs. Already it vas appreciably thinner; the curb vas visible from the railings, the amps illuminated an ever-growing circle of,mist. Mr. Herridge con- ratulated himself upon having chosen his moment so well. It did not matter to him now how soon he fog lifted. In fact, it would help im. There would be more people, in he streets and it would be easier for im to pursue his way unobserved. When he was about fifty yards rom Lord Hardwayis house he began unostentatiously to quicken his iteps. A car was coming up behind nm, moving scarcely /'faster.- than People who catch cold easily, who have , sore throat or tonsilitis, usually lack the reserve strength to resist disease.

It was ust possible that the driver might notice him sufficiently to give a ·ough description if questioned sub- equently. The theft was pretty sure o be discovered before very long, and Mr. Herridge was not parttcu- arly anxious to be seen just then m iVoodbridge Square. He noticed witii satisfaction that the effect of quickening his steps was that the cai did not gain upon him. Having reached the corner of the iquare, Mr. Herridge turneo sharply into Deben street. And, ai he did so, for the first time he feit a sudden sickening conviction tha' fie was being followed. He could hear or see nothing, but his extra ordinarily sharp perception told bin that somewhere in the fog was an other form,'as silent as himself. H checked himself, and cowered baci against the railings, trying to pierc the darkness: As he did so a darV shadow loomed suddenly into th circle of light cast by the lamp a the corner Mr. Herridge knew that his onl' chance of escaping observation la' in remaining motionless, and trust iing- to the shadow passing him b But a sudden and unreasonnbl panic took possession of him. Th shadow materialized into the figur of a man, his height and bulk mag nlfied by the fog. And when ttu menacing figure turned the corne and came straight towards him, M Herridge lost his head and made bolt for it down Deben street. Bu it was too late, a hand like iron fe upon his shoulder, almost knockin him to the ground. And as he stag gered, his arms were seized, he wt swung round like - 'laby, and a pa' of handcuffs r -2d . over h: wrists. He was so daz;d, that for a mo ment he could not speak, but stoo there facing his captor, a bluf faced, burly man, who smiled at him sardonically. "Why, bless me, if i isn't Pussy!" he exclaimed. "Lost your way in the fog, haven't you, Pussy? This is Mayfnir, not Wapping, you know." Mr. Herridge made no reply. The man was a total stranger to him and he wondered dizzily -how he came to recognize him. He rathci priced himself on his knowledge of the plain-clothes squad, but to this man's identity he could find no clew. Well, it didn't,matter much. Her» he was, taken with the diamonds on him. ,What was the shortest sentence he dare expect? The car had drawn up beside the pavement, and its driver had leapt out. "Here. Jim, just hold Mr. Herridge's hand for a moment, will you?" said' Pussy's captor. "I shouldn't like him to lose himself lr the fog again. Now then, Pussy, where have you stowed them. Pockets? No. Ah,, something hard under your shirt! Nice sort of cheat protector. Pussy, just the thing fov a fog- like this. Right, I've got them Jim." The driver got back into his seat, and his captor pushed the unresist ing Mr. Herridge into the back "We'll have a little drive together, won't we Pussy?" he said, and he MaJ.

At least such' was the impression I gathered while listening- to him, and I 'cite testimony in corroboration of it.' ' , ' * * * ' ; A LTHO "Smed's" abilities- are good, he has his mental equals, and despite the fact that his courage is of the first order, doubtless he has his peers in that respect also, but it is mighty seldom that ability and courage are combined in a single character as his combines them. Nevertheless, I believe I ' would rate his nerve a trifle ahead. · of his judgment. For example, he certainly is reckless, in his fashion .of making- enemies. Far be'it from me to suggest that he was reckless in referring to Mussolini as a hit-and-run autoist. Supposing that he plans to run for United States senator in Pennsylvania, or ;some Such office, I can hardly think of anything likely to help him more than to have been blamed by a court martial for his verbal thrust at the Italian dictator. * » * U.T "Smed" has a habit of doing or saying something calculated to offend ' the entire public on one side of a red-hot issue like prohibition arid following- it up by loing or saying something to offend ihe entire public on the opposite side of it. Making enemies on both sides is overdoing matters. After his experience in trying to purify Philadelphia, the . drys in :ongress virtually were ready to oost .him for president--until he ermed the eighteenth amendment an attempt to "keep liquor away "rom folk without influence." Even after that he restored himself to rood dry standing- by preferring iharges against Col. Alexander iVilliams, his host, at a social func- Jon in San Diego, Gal., for serv- ng cocktails--and then made a peech in which he mentioned the fool Volstead law." * * * XTHAT I suspect is that "Smed's" ' · oratory tends to run a trifle vild when he gives free rein to it. It was while under the spell of a it of tb^i after-dinner eloquence that he took the jab, quoted above, t the eighteenth amendment. Re- larka" he oncev was supposed to ave made concerning marine ac- vities in Nicaragua nearly resulted an official investigation, but, on eing .pinned down, no one fecalled ust .how* he iad^expressed himself. B abor federation' complained to f the navy department of certain of his itterances as "anarchistic and in- lammatory," .but the then secre- ary, Curtis D. Wilbur, never did mything about it. Apropos, maybe, of nothing- in articular, "Smed's" father, the late ongresssman Thomas S. Butler of Philadelphia, for many years was chairman of the house of represen- :atives' committee on naval affairs, and tremendously influential. He died during the last session.

(/P)--Brood ing over pending charges of drivin while intoxicated, C. F. Schwenne ker, dairyman, killed himself. took his place beside him. "Just a far as the Yard, where we'll have nice cozy chat. Right away, Jim." The car started off, and Mr. Her ridge, still handcuffed settled him self back into his seat, trying t summon all his wits to meet tTi coming ordeal. It wasn't only th Hardway diamonds; that was a fa cop, from which there was n chance of escape. But there wer other things, about which awkwar questions might be asked, pas crimes which, unless he were care ful, might be dragged to light. I was with no cheerful anticipatio that Mr. Herridge regarded th coming interview. The fog was still thick, and th driver had some difficulty in findin his way. At the end of Deben strei he checked, and flung a questio over .his shoulders to his companio The latter leant forward to rep], momentarily slackening his grasp Mr. Herridge'a arm. In a flash M Herridge had wriggled himself fre With a sudden desperate moveme he vaulted clean out of the car, an fell sprawling in the roadway Scrambling to his feet, he took I his heels and ran as he had neve before. He heard a shout behin him, and then the kindly fog swa lowed him up once more. (TO BE CONTINUED) MRS.-TUTTLE IS BURIED AT USAGE Correspondent Wrote ,Notes for Her Obituary While III in Bed.
