While Mario's department, where gems were appraised, and the storage room for repairs adjoined and bolh opened off the same little corridor Into which there was no approach except through the reception-counter door. T In both rooms row upon row 01 1 cabinets containing shallow, partitioned drawers stood elevatet upon a short round of steps causet by a slight difference in the strec level, and it would take an agile thief indeed to reach these cab inels and make a getaway, the more especially so as the two de parlments often worked logclhe and an intruder would have been sure to encounter either Whit Marie. Mrs. Denton, or one of twi trusted secretaries. What on earth had happened Alma wondered? White Marie wa :=oon pouring out the story to Ol Victor Blanchard. It seemed that some few day ago a woman, a rather ordinary looking housewife, had brought i &n old-lashioncd brooch to be r« paired. She said it bad been he mother's. "I looked at it once only," s*I Marie, "when I knew that the sign wnp f*rmHa.r. The stones wer not important, but 1 knew th ece itself had some value—some cculiar value, which I could not member right away. So 1 asked lis woman very sharply if she is ire this was her mother's brooch? lie Dlushed and .said well no, it •as not. She tiad seen the brooch i a. pawn shop and bought it for 50. And now her husband was ngry and said she had thrown ic money away. She had brought woman investigated and cabled to London for details and a confirmation.'* "And the woman—is H that she is not a real Bronx?" Old Victor's shaggy eyebrows puckered rather comically wilh th«'earnestness of his question. "The woman is all right Exactly as represented. And entitled to the $25,000. But the brooch is gone," "Was anything broken open — in the office* I mean?" Alma asked. "Nothing." "What does Mrs. Denton say? Isn't she awfully distressed?" "Or course. But she says the >rooch was there just before she 5ft at closing lime. Sbe saw the department locked up. And she talked to you, Alma, very late.

Old Victor wat -ager nd interested, as though he an- cipated something clear to him Trough his long intimacy with er. "Yes, my Victor," said Marie jcshinka. "For when I looked at back of the pin through my trong lens, I saw the engraving ve have been watching for now hese many years." To Victoria from Albert,'" aid Old Victor. She nodded and a sort of gusty j>h blew around the table. Even Alma, a comparative newcomer, tnew about the brooch which had never been recovered after the heft of the Queen Victoria jewels rom the British Museum, and of h« standing offer of a 125,000 reward which the British government had posted with every re- iable jeweler, for Its return. The brooch, which completed a gift set, had at last found its way, heaven only knew by what devious jcarneyings, Into the hands of a Bronx housewife, and thence to TrumbuII'K. It was an event of the first importance in the world jewelry. A FTER a short sflenc*, White Marie lifted her bowed head. "And now the brooch is gone— stolen! 1 Void th* woman to cone back today and 1 would l*t h*r know what her find was worth. Meanwhile, o< course, I had the iust before she went home.- Is that not so?" Yes." Alma nodded, "She cam* up to say good by and she was at usual — calmly sweety and sour! Will she go on her vacation now?" I think so. Why not? She came to work for half a day, and she's coming back tomorrow moro- ing. She's very upset, of course. Like the rest of us, she T s been watching (or that pin for year*." • • • tf\:fADAME LESH1NKA, you're right!" said Alma. "Thii time something really drastic mutt be done to get back that trinket— we don't want the British government down around our earsl** Alma was echoing the sense of Oaw ^>ay6; Come to the RAZORBACK For Delicious, Barbecue RIBS Served Every Day solidarity which the oth«rs felt too: Trumbull'8 problems were always preeminently their personal problem. "And meanwhile, whoever has got hold of the pin Lt in Lkpe to collect S25.000," said Mr. Smith from Silverware, not without » wistful touch of envy. "That's • lot of money—a LOT of money!" There was no sign of Tommy, no word from him when Alma got home that night Again the place had that empty, lost look which roomj seem to acquire when the man of the house Is gone. H was made even more lonely by the absence of Joe Denton's usual solicitous telephone call. They had had so many gay and happy evenings together—Ine th'»« "( them! And now all that was gone!
