I cannot trace the dog's movements, for his marks are all over the lawn, but at one point on my diagram you will observe that No, 8's feet show a great many imprints in one place. Here he was stopped by the dog, whose footmarks are iiumerousi at the point indicated. Their exaggerated shape, too, shows clearly that the dog jumped upon the man, and that in falling back upon his haunches the miirlc of his whole leg was made. Again, from this point toward the gate I nots that the stride of the man increased. This means that he ran away. You followed the other two What did yon discover?" "I gave you my drawings, and you have them shown quite accurately. No, 2 made by a woman, commences, as you know at the steps of the dining room piazza and leads to the summer house. From there I traced it ever to the river where I found a boat landing. Thence she returned to the steps again. No. 1 a man's, commences at the river bank about 200 feet south of the landing and leads directly to the steps. Thence i follows around the house and on through the main gate. Outside, un fortunately, our party this mornirji made so many footprints that I conli not follow No. 1." "Did yon cross the river, Tom? "No, but there is a boat there, and meant'to suggest that we go'over to eether I tbiuk we will find evidence c the other side that my lady crossed last night. Why else should she bave gone to tbe boat?" "Certainly; we will go at once, but first I have something more to communicate. Your theory was that tbe shot was nred from without and by a woman and you inclined to tbe belief that you knew the identity of that woman. What, then, do you think of this?" He handed Burrows a beautiful silver mounted revolver, in tbe chambers of which were four loaded cartridges and one empty cartridge. Tbe weapon had apparently been recently fired. Burrows looked at it a moment in amazement and then asked: "Where did you iind this?" "Outside of tbe summer bouse, lying in the snow, just where I claim that the woman stopped,, Now you see what I meant when J said I conld guess why she did so. But you have not seen all yet. There is a name on it. Bead." Burrows examined tbe butt more attentively, and there saw a piece of plate let into tbe stock, and neatly engraved thereon tbe name, " 'Alice Marvel.'' "Mr. Barnes, what do you make of that?" "I think that some one bad that pistol last night and fired it. From otber evidence that I bave I should say it is a circumstantial probability tbat Miss Marvel herself was here last night and fired her pistol." "This is tbe second time you bave •ased that phrase, 'circumstantial probability.' Won't you explain it?" "Certainly. We are considering a case purely on circumstantial evidence. I bave all my life made a specialty of scch, and I divide it into three grades, according to tbe logical deduction which it indicates. Tbe first of these I call a 'circumstantial possibility.' For example, bad tbe wound in this case been differently located it might bave been a 'circumstantial possibility' that it was a suicide. Second, we have a 'circumstantial probability' sucb as I bave here and will explain. Third, tbe 'circumstantial proof where tbe attendant factsjJeave absolutely no room for doubBm in my experience a rare thing." "I understand. Now will you tell me why you think it a circumstantial probability that Miss Marvel was here and fired the pistol?" "From the facts which I bave already given you I sbould say it was a question whether she was bere or whether some one else had her pistol. But 1 found another pistol.'' "The deuce you did!" "And this one," producing a duplicate of the one already shown, "also has a name—Harry Lucas. Now follow my argument Squire Olney told us that II these two young people are sweethearts. i The tracks indicsite tbat a woman play- : ed the spy on a nan wbo came to meet another woman. The weapons bear the names of a man and his sweetheart Is it not plain? Miss Marvel came to hear what the other girl had to say to her lover, and he to 'her.'' • "You are right," said Borrows er- citedly, "and is it not equally evident that the second woman is Miss Lewis? Remember, the meeting was in her own grounds." "I am more inclined to thint so than at first, thoush I do no* commit myse* yet But there is anofber matter worth considering. I found Lucas' weapon in tbe snow at tbe point where I claim be was attacked by tbe dog. There is also a little blood stain"— "Ah I see, yon argue that he drew bis pistol and fired at tbe dog, and so account for tbe empty shell there.' "Yes But tbe blood stain is impor- ant I think tbat came from a wound made by tbe dog's teeth. As tbe discol- ration is visible, although somewhat overed I believe tbe snow stopped bortly after. Thus I reckon that he eft about 9 o'clock. The woman left after tbe snow bad ceased." - You tbink Lucas shot at the dog and dropped bis pistol in the scrimmage. Do you think Miss Marvel shot at tbe dog also?" "Tbat we must find out. I have shown you tbe probability of tbe case, ending with the idea tbat both of these pistols were fired at tbe dog. But there s another aspect which you must not neglect, and that is the 'circumstantial possibility.' Remember tbat both; Lucas and this girl, according to the squire's story, bad threatened the dead man They both came here armed, an .Now/TOm, i will give yon a cnance to do some work alone. That girl has gone to mail her letter. The nearest postoffice is in the vicinity of the bridse and in u private house. See; she is go° that direction. By the road it is rcre than a mile.

Tbe noise may have attracted the dog, and tbus tbat contest may have occurred after the discharge of the weapon, instead of before. Further, suppose that, seeing tbat her lover bad left, tbe girl had also taken aim at the same target. One shot may have made tbe hole in the ceiling, and tbe other may bave reached the-mark." . "Why, tbis becomes more complicated every minute. What about tbe pistol in Miss Lewis' room?" "Ah! Tbat is the problem. But, come; we will go across tbe river." Thereupon they proceeded to the boat landing, marked L in the diagram, and crossed in a light rowboat, which they found fastened at that place. On tbe other bank they found a continuation of the footprints marked No. 2. These led to tbe "base of a gigantic maple (R), around whicb a seat of boards had been arranged. Mr. Barnes examined tbe spot critically and finally said: "I guess it was Miss Lewis after all. =ee tbis tree is covered with carved monograms of her initials and Marvel's. Evidently tbis has been a trysting place for that pair of lovers. Here is another evidence tbat the snow stopped shortly after tbe meeting at the summer bouse, for wbereas she came bere directly, her footprints on tbis side of tbe river are quite distinct, showing that tbe snow ceased during her trip over to this place." . "Sbe met a man bere too. See bis footprints. Could it have been the lover this time—I mean Marvel?" "Possibly. But let us see if \re can trace bim to where he crossed^tbe nver, if-indeed it was he wbo did," They followed the tracks, but; they entered the woods just back of tbe maple and were lost. However, a diihgent search along the river bank discovered a track which emerged from the wood and approached the river. They got into the boat, rowed across to a point opposite and found there the beginning of the track on tbat side marked in tbe diagram No. 1. "Tbe directness of this trail from this point to the house," said Mr. Barnes, "is circumstantial proof tha, the man crossed tbe river with the in tention of visiting tbat place.. |o: what? Whether be was or was not Ln cas be had already bad an interview with Miss Lewis, and therefore ins v:isit was scarcely to her." "How conld it be Lucas?" "Supposing be intended to kill Lowis after being interrupted by the dog could be not have gone around by these woods and returned later to complete his work? It is barely possible tbat the whole thing was planned, that tbe in terview at the summer house was a pre llminary, and that Miss Lewis went t the maple, where she was later joine- by Lucas, who told her tbe result of hi first attempt and arranged the second.' "How could he know that be ha failed in his first shot?" "I don't like to follow this line of thought much, as it is all guesswork. Still, it is one of the possibilities, and in case it turns out wrong will teach you bow easy it is to misconstrue circumstantial evidence. To continue it, suppose tbat at tbe meeting over the river Miss Lewis and Lucas determined to finish what they bad begun. The object would be tbat by killing old Lewis the prosecution of Marvel wonid c«:ase, the complainant being dead. Miss I«w- is undertakes to furnish a weapon because he had lost bis. She owns ono, as the squire has explained. Therefore Lucas enters tbe house through the side door, and from tbe dining room has access to the girl's bedroom, where she gives him a pistol; thence he easily enters the parlor. Snch an arrangement of events would readily account fcir her destroying the evidence tbat her weapon bad been used. But don't lay too much stress on all this, for, as I said, it is purely guesswork. There is a fla.w in it too. Why did Miss Lewis leavo her coadjutor on the wrong side of the river when they separated, and thus fern* him to wade a stream of water da a cold night?" "Tbat may be discovered; later. Jack; there, she is, laa-rlng the house. which we want. I will wait for you at the bouse unless something should turn up to make me change my plaus. Burrows was already in tbe bout and started us scon us these last words were uttered. Mr. Barnes waited till tbe gir was out of sight and then returned quickly to the house. He went straight to Virginia's room and over to the writing cabinet in which she had placed the pistol To obtain this he meant to break the lock if necessary. Greatly to Ins surprise, he found the key iu th« lock He opened the drawer, but did not hud tbereiu the object of his search. Looking around tbe room, he was startled to find the pistol lying on the bed. he picked it up and noted tbat it was o. the same pattern as the other two which he already bad and, like them, bore a plate with its owner's name, in this instance, "Virginia Lewis." Is my last guess correct, thought Mr Barnes, "and did that youiig girl instigate and assist at a murder? Wuy, what is tbis? This weapon has an empty cartridge in it." He examined it closely and gently raised tbe hammer By heaven, she has replaced a shell for che one which she removed. I see it all. She wishes to get the best of me m some way. She knows that I picked up tbe -hell which she bad drawn and tbeie would no longer be anything gained by reloading the pistol, vvhy. she has even taken tbe precaution to so place the cartridge that the hammer rests in the little indentation made m the rim when fired, and there, on tbe desk is a little boi of empty shells. Evidently if I showed the one winch I have she would laugh and show a bos full However, I still have the brnsn with whicb she cleaned the barrel. But I am wasting time. This girl will outwit Burrows. I must go after her myself " When passing through the dining room, be bad noticed behind the door several hocks on which hung some clothing.
