Jolly! ., -J the ot a shoe. lie was a cobbler and occupied a small shop on the outskirts of a citv. His f a m i l v consisted of himself and grandson, little Pierre, who was ten years of age. Behind the shop was a i-oom which served as a parlor, bedroom and kitchen. The cooking was done by IJernard himself, who possessed some knowledge of thc culinary art. Old Pierre's reputation was not of the best; though he hid never b?en detected in a really dishonest net, he was known to be tricky. But he had a genial manner, was always i-eadv to talk, and his shop became a rendezvous for male gossips who liked to talk about the affairs of the day. OB this particular m o r n i n j two of tlie fraternity sauntered in. "Good morning, Pierre," said Caleb Gibson. "How's business?" '·Dad," answered Lernard, shaking !,is head. "I can'ccompcte with store prices, and it is a hard matter to keen body and soul together." "Body and sole, eh?" said Caleb, rlmckling at his own attempt at wit. '·You must 'see that the sole keeps the body while it lasts." I'icrrc laughed as he gave the shoe a resounding blow with liis hammer, lie always laughed at other men's jokes, however poor they might he; tliis was one of the secrets of his popularity. Presently Silas I'arkcr remarked: "Odd about thc robbery, isn't il?" "What robbery? 1 ' '·Haven't you read of it in the paper?" Silas asked in surprise. '·I have no time to read papers," "Weli, ii happened last night up ut tlie hall, Mrs. ]' ' iacc was stolen. very valuable, and BO long that, it could be wound several times about licr neck. The detectives ai-e working-up the case." "Have they any clew to thc tliicl?" Pierre asked, carelessly, "Well, a slight one. They f o u n d a bit of cloth W h a t is the matter."' lie broke off in alarm, as a cry escaped IJernard. "Oh, I pounicd mv finger a little, that's all." "You must have liiirt it badly, you arc (juite pale." "Xo, no!" Pierre answered, quickly. "It is nothing. Go on w i t h y o u r (.lory. You were saving thev foi-'nd a l)it of clot!,." "Vcs--a small zigzag- piece,evidently torn from a coat. It was hanging- on a nail." "Well," said Pierre, deliberately, "I liope thc robber will escape." ^·'Wliy?" said Silas iu amanemcnt. 'Tor my part 1 hope he w i l l be u r o u j h t to justice." "Jiiblicel" said Uarnai-d testily. "Is there Mich a thing?" '·There is law, nnj-way, and it v.-c a p i t a l i s t s Sjld to He fnnslilcrln: the l-rnillillll.v of KrectliiL- a Vj.t jluliu- liilT Capable of JIolllln; Tnemy Xlioa- ml IVopl,-.
