He •elites snSDlcion by leaving his room at mid- iteht Vl.Vlll.lXand X-Harnes arrives it ee with young Marvel. »nd an nqtiest is held, at wkloh Alice Marvel testifies that she Sre"oneofthesbote tb»t killed Lew ». and VinrlBi* confesses, presumably to shield the real Murder. "Marvel crt«sefl the flver; tnererore the things wero wet. He says he changed them at his house and threw the bundle into the river. Did he make the change, and, if so, did he throw the things into the river? Ho had a satchel, and it is probable that it contained the clothes. If so, he made the change, but did not throw them in Co the river. According to Weston, he took the satchel with him •when he started for this house. As this is his sleeping room, he probably brought it in here, whatever ha may havB done later. Although cleaner than the rest of the house, there is still a considerable quantity of dust about this ' room; yet it :is not likely thut I can find out, from sucli a source, where he laid down hisi satchel. However, if he- took out the vret clothes and laid them down, the water would have converted the dust into mud and would have left a distinct toa:rk on the floor. There is nothing of the kind about, so he did not .pnt them on the floor. What did he do .with them? What would I do under similar circumstances? Burn them perhaps. But they were saturated with water. Still it is always dangerous to cou- •ceal such evidence, for some cue generally finds the best hidden articles when a crime is connected with them. There- lore I shouli have burned them at iall cost of tame or trouble. I should (have burned the satchel with them,' building a large log fire and potting at with its contents on top of the logs. Sn this way, by the time the fire had 'destroyed this satchel, the clothes would ibe dry enough to bnrn. Then I should jhave raked out and thrown away the ashes, a point which would not strike » criminal an quickly as a detective—at aeast, it seems that it seldom does. I ithink I ma;;- as well examine the fire- jplace." Reaching this point in his reasoning, ! he went to the chimney and found some ;ashes. He carefully brushed the pile on to a piece of newspaper, which be took Ifrom his overcoat pocket. This done, he Said the whole on the floor near the -window, auil then, with a piece oi *tiok, gradunHy moved the soft ashes •from the coni;or to the side. Aa he die *hia ho was careful to examine every iparticle, aeMrching for anything that may have escaped combustion. It was not long before his patience was re•warded, for first a few iron 'buttons and then several other pieces of iron or metal of some kind were separated from the debris. The buttons, of course -proved that iiomething more than an or dinary fire had been made oa thi Jaearti, and it was but fair to isupposi •that cJothirg had been burned. Thi other thinpii, however, puzzled him awhile, for, i;hough not entirely destroy «d. he still 1'ound it hard to tell exactly rwhat they were. After some thought he concluded tliat the majority of the met al had originally belonged to the frame -•work of the satchel. One piece still re mained to be accounted for. This was ; bit of wire. Burrows was almost on th point of throwing this away, as unim jportant, whi'u it suddenly occurred t •him that it must be all that was left o the false whiskers. There was nothin more that his could make out of the ash «s; still he carefully wrapped all u and placed the package iu a sma! .satchel, which he had brought with him. Bnrrnws smiled as he thought to himself: "Marvel lied when he said the ilocket was jitill in his pocket. There is 'no trace of it here, so it is evident that jthe one fovi.ud was the same which he ihad with hiitn that night" Burrows was now anxious to find the pistol. He recollected that the squire had told of the pistol which Marvel had left at the touse, and as he knew that it had not been found ie deemed it probable that it was the weapon used in the murder. This was not so readily reasoned out as tie other matter, for, as a pistol could not be burned, it must be hidden, and as there was no vray of guessing the hiding place there was but one coarse open to him—namely, to hunt. This he did as thoroughly as Mr. Barnes had taught him to do, and when he went down staira again he felt almost sure tbat the weapon load not been ,»boj& He W»B jus* M Ibar ough in giling " over tlle roonjs on the lower floor and finally reached the kitchen without having found it. He had not looked long in this place, however, before he noticed that the tiles in front of the stove had teen disturbed. One of the stones .bad be<;:n so poorly replaced that Burrows muttered to himself, "He must have> wanted this to be found." Keinoviag it, he disclosed a, hole below, in which was a pistol. He took this out, and another object attracted his attention. This proved to be a small piece of silver plated metal, and a closer scrutiny revealed the fact that a name was engraved thereon. This name was ' 'John Lewis." "Better and better," thought the detective. "How nicely the precautions of criminal, as usual, serve to convict im. This is a plate which he wrenched rom the satchel, and the name proves 3at he goi; that at the farm. I am not urprised any longer that he did not dis- urb any of his own people that night, or he did not go home at all. He ob- ained a change at the house of his vie- im. He is a cool hand, to kill a man nd then wear his clothing away from he scene of his crime." Burrowsi now turned his attention to he pistol, and at once noticed that here were three empty chambers. He oncluded from this that Marvel must ave fired both shots found in the body, still looking at the weapon, he noticed hat a name was engraved on the stock. He approached the window for more ight and read, "Walter Marvel." At his moment the door was opened and Mr. Barnes and Lewis stood on the hreshold. thus cnlflefl t>eimt> Xewis. JSut 3fl.r. Barnes did not appear to notice his rising temper. "I suppose not. Like all young men, you do a wrong act and then, instead of having the manhood to acknowledge the error and in some way endeavor to atone therefor, you persist in defending the course pursued. But you shall not make any more mistakes in this case. From this moment you may consider that you have 110 further connection with it." "What do you mean?" "I mean tbat you will go back to Boston and remain there." "And let yon take all the credit for my work, I suppose? Mr. Barnes, you are presumptuous." "I am in charge of this case, and I order you to have no more to do with it" "What if I refuse?" "1 will dispatch a message to the agency and request your recall." "Do so if yon wish. Perhaps I shall send a message also that will place a different aspect on what you ask them to do. I have discovered the true criminal, and I doubt if I shall be recalled for so doing." Mr. Barnes stopped a moment to reflect. He did not wish to force Burrows into any hasty action and preferred, if ^ ... . * I • .-»__! "Do so, ^Ir. Barnes, "and I will givo yon f 1,000. I have saved some money, and although that is^a large sum I will give it cheerfully." "Thank you for your generous offer, but I am going to work now as a dnty. I The innocent must not and shall not suffer if I can prevent it. Besides, my j professional pride is • aroused in this now.'' The three men then turned their steps toward the town and walked along in silence. Each of the party had. much with which to occupy his thoughts, and, besides, the recent scene had caused rather a restraint, at least between two of them. Just before they reached the hotel, however, Mr. Barnes asked Burrows: "How many shots were fired from that pistol?" "There are three empty shells in it." "That is tusay, ichas been used twice since the shot which Marvel fired at the birthday party?" "Evidently." Mr. Barnes said no more, and a few minutes later they all were at the notel, whence they went to the depot. Burrows and Lewis started by train for Dover, and Mr. Barnes for Boston. Beaching that city, he went directly to the agency and reported all that had occurred. He was closeted with the chief as t5 time nr tn<r are CHAPTER XTV. WHEN DETECTIVES QUAEKEL—? When Burrows saw Mr. Barnes in he doorway, for a moment he was con- used, but almost immediately he con- sluded that it was too late for the older detective to take any of the glory away rorn him. Summoning up his courage, ie said: Good morning, Mr. Barnes. You just in time to hear the news. I have discovered the real murderer." Mr. Barnes looked at him keenly as ie asked: Who is it?" The man whom I suspected from the start—Walter Marvel," replied Bnr- ows, with a tinge of exultation in his voice. "And pray how do you prove this? asked Mr. Barneii quietly. Burrows was nettled at the tone of his superior and answered with considerable asperity: "Oh, there is proof enough. I am sure of what I say, or I should not make the assertion," I hope you are not making any blunder, Burrows. Remember, it is a serious thing for a detective to make a charge of murder against any one unless he can assure a conviction al; the trial." I know that; but I tell you there is no mistake here. I have tracked my man to a:nd from the scene of the crime and can give yon incontestable proof of •what I say." "Go on; I am listening. " Mr. Barnes sat down on a chair near him. Burrows forthwith entered into a minute and detailed account of the facts from which he- had reached the conclusion which he had just so positively asserted. Dtsring the narration Mr. Barnes made absolutely no comment, and when Burrows reached the end of his story he was impatient to know what would be said. He already saw that he would noli revive the praise which he considered was due to his efforts. Mr. Barnes pondered over the situation for a few moments arid then said: "Do you realize what you have clone, Mr. Burrows?" Burrows did not like to have Mr. Barnes call him "Mr." Borrows, for he knew at once now thai; Mr. Barnss was angry, and, determined as he had been to pursue this examination alone, he had by no means counted on a quarrel. Therefore in a troubled tone he answered: "Do I realize what I have done? No harm, I hope?" " You have been the means of fixing a terrible imputation on the character of a girl who is the pride of this county-" "How so?" "It was distinctly your duty to report to me the conversation which yon had with the station agent I a:n in charge "Ham you the letter nmrf" of this inquiry, and by yo'nr stupidity and vani'sy you have caused irreparable harm." "I don't see thatl" Borrows •was get- He possible, still to control him. So, abandoning for a moment his tone of command, he asked: "Since you have assumed charge of the affair, will yon mind telling me what you wish to do next?" "I believe that the evidence is all to be given to the grand jury today. I should go to Dover at once and relate to them the facts which I have just told you." "In other words, not satisfied with the trouble which you have already given to Miss Lewis, yon will now go and obtain the indictment of her lover, notwithstanding the fact that he is innocent. '' "Innocent!" "Of course he is innocent, You have proved it by your work. Only by your delay yon have lost all traces of the real criminal." "But how can you say tbat he is innocent when I have proved that he came here straight from the farm; that he was recognized"— "By a man who does not know him." "But here in, his own house are signs of his guilt." "Burrows, if this were not so serious a case, I would let you have your way and then, at the trial, show yon what an idiot you are. Bat as I wish, if possible, to avoid any more mistakes, I will show you how easy it is for me to overturn your castles in the air. According to your latest theory, you make Marvel commit murder and leave the town on a train which started from Lee at 10:39 p. in. Now, Miss Lewis left him across the river, went directly to her room and reached there at 10:30 p. m. Therefore it is plain that Marvel has an easily proved alibi." Burrows flushed at this, but he was not willing to give .up his theory without one more struggle. "The only way in which be could prove that would be by the testimony of his accomplice, and"— "Stop! "For shame, Mr. Burrows! Would yon resort to so base a thing as slander"simply to have the gratification of finding a criminal? To make your chain complete, would you implicate a girl against whom yon have not a particle of evidence?" "She has confessed her share in tne crime." "She is a noble woman and is trying to shield her lovei from the mistakes of such detectives as you are proving yourself to be." "You ought to go on the stage," sneered Burrows. "You would make quite" a heroic actor, Mr. Barnes." "Come," said Mr. Barnes sternly, "no impertinence! Kespect my age^nd experience if yon do not respect me, and now, since I cannot turn yon from your folly, which ia this case will possibly be a crime, I must resort TO compulsion, and again, as your superior, I order you to abandon your project." "And I refuse," returned Burrows hotly. "Very well. I will give yon one more chaace. Whatever little ability as a detective you may have you have imbibed most of your best methods from association with me. Let me tell you that if you do not obey me in this instance you must never expect anv assistance or advice from me again. Mare- over, I swear to find the guilty man acid to right the wrong which you will have done to two innocent people. Act as yon have said you will, and you will live to rue the day when yon quarreled with Jack Barnes.'' Burrows regrette;d the turn of events, but he felt too sure of his position to give it up. He thought Mr. Barnes was actuated to some extent by jealousy, and that he would find it difficult to accomplish all that he threatened. He had no pity for Marvel, for he believed him to be the guilty man, and i>o he determined to go at once to Dover with his new evidence. In reply to Mr. Barnes he said: "You have made the quarrel, not L I am doing my duty." "What will you do, Mr. Lewis;" asked the elder detective. "I shall go on to Dover with Mr. Burrows and see the thing through. I don't say that I think he is right, for, as you say, I shoald be obliged to accept the theory that Miss Lewis is guilty also, and while I thought Miar- vel the murderer, as I told you befosre I started here, I must say that I won'.ld rather think him innocent than believe that my cousin had a hand in the affair. Still she may have been mistaken ahont the time. However, I must wait for older heads than mine to solve this problem." "I am glad thas you are not as easily convinced by this array of evidence aa our young friend thinks the jury wiill be. AB I suppose you want the truth, I promise you that I will use all my Ibest mxstery.." for over an hour, but was unable to cou- vince that personage that Burrows was on a wrong scent. On the contrary, he seemed to think that the young man had shown considerable ability in ferreting out the truth of the matter. "Well," said Mr. Barnes, "you must choose between me and him. If you refuse to recall him from the case, you must accept my resignation from the agency." "I should be sorry to lose our best man," responded the chief, "but, really, yonr request seems a little unreasonable to me. Burrows has only done what we must consider a service, and it would be manifestly unjust to let him suffer for it." "Then you refuse to call him home?" "Well, I don't see"— "There are no half way measures which you can adopt. It must be either Burrows or Barnes. Come, decide at once! I have no time to waste!" "Well, then, since you will have it, yon force me to accept your resignation, though I regret it very much." "Sentiment is unnecessary," said Mr. Barnes dryly. "Goodmorning!" Before the chief could say a word he was gone, and bis superior more than half doubted the wisdom of the course which he had pursued. But that is only man's nature. We often decide quickly, only to regret as soon as the decision is irrevocable. Leaving the agency, Mr. Barnes proceeded to a telegraph office and sent a dispatch to the clerk of the court at Dover, asking for news as to the result of the examination before the grand jury. This done, he went to his home and dined, alter which he waited impatiently for a telegram from Dover, because he had decided to do nothing until he should hear from the court officer. The afternoon passed, and the evening, till at leuRth he concluded that he would not hear till the following day, and therefore retired to rest. Early in the morning he received the dispatch, which read: "Marvel indicted for murder," This was only what he had expected, but he could not repress an exclamation of disgust at what he still thought was the consequence of criminal interference on the part of Burrows. What should he do next? That was the point to settle, but while he ate his breakfast and pondered over this point a servant announced that a lady wished to see him. He at once repaired to his parlor, whither she had been shown, and was astounded to see Virginia Lewis. "You are no doubt surprised that 1 am here.'' "I confess that I am." "I have been set at liberty, and Mr. Marvel has been indicted by the grand jury. ** "I have just received a telegram to that effect." "What will you do nest? I went to the agency in search of you and learned that you have severed your connection with the case. Will you tell xne why you did so?" "Because tbey refuse to recall Mr. Burrows." "Then you do not think that the evidence which he discovered proves the guilt of Mr. Marvel?" "Miss Lewis, I must tell you that I did not credit the story which yon told implicating yourself, and if I believe in yonr innocence I must also believe in Mr. Marvel's." "Why so?" "Burrows is no doubt right in claiming that the murderer is the man who made the trip to Eppiug that night, but I think he is wrong in his identification of this man." I thought he had that all thoroughly explained?" Miss Lewis, I imagine from yonr coming here that you wish my aid." I have come to you because I fancied that yon believe Mr. Marvel innocent I wish yon to try to prove it." "Precisely. Meanwhile you yourself suspect that he is gnilly, do you not?" "I do not say so." "It is so, nevertheless. But we shall not get along in this way. You must not fence with me any more. We are on the same side now, and though Burrowi; has not had as much experience as 1 have it will take all my skill to destroy the case which he has made out against yonr lover." Mr. Barnes nsed this word purposely to arouse her to action. ' 'I trust you, Mr. Barnes, and place onr affair in yonr hands. Ask me what yon please, and I will repiy." '' Very good. In the first place tell me am I not right in saying that you have believed that Mr. Marvel is guilty?" "Yes. You are right." " Very good. That proves your inno- oenoe. Now I will demonstrate Ms, to •BOUT, stttisfaction at least'.' 3» you But, then," said Virginia, "the real rer must have placed the pistol it was found; so as to throw sus- Mr. Marvel?" Exactly! You are quick to see thirds, quicker than our adversary, Mr. Burrows. Before we go into that, however tell me why you consider Marvel puilty Yon must have more reason for that "opinion than is known to me." • 'I have. After we separated across the river, as you shrewdly discovered, he returned to'the farm. He admitted to you that he had entered the house, hut he did not tell you that he had left a note for ma I found this in the morning and, as I see now, I misconstrued it That was the secret motive of all my actions thereafter." "Have you the letter now? ' "Yes here it is." Taking it from her pocket, she handed it to Mr. Barnes. It read as follows: When we parted tonight, you spoke as though you could not give me the answer mat I w ian. Perhaps when this reaches you you may see things differently. By morning what now 8t*ins an obstacle in your judgment may be removed, and you may feel free to decide your own and my fate yourself. Should you decide against me, write to me, as agreed, and I will leave you and this country forever. Mr. Barnes read this carefully, and then said: I see your mistake. In reading it placed a comma after the word 'judgment,'whereas he meant it to be after the word 'obstacle.' However, this paper alone will prove the alibi so necessary to Mr. Marvel, and so you may rest easy, although I shall not until I have found the man who manufactured all this evidence against Mr. Marvel. There is another point which I wish cleared up. How did you know there were two wounds in the body and so be able to arrange your story Co meet the requirements of the case so well?" "When Alice fain ted, and was brought out of the room, Harry Lucas came with her, and, while the doctor was attending to her, I questioned Lucas. " "Of course. Of course. I was a fool to let him leave the room, but then a man cannot think of everything. You are a clever woman, Miss Lewis, and it •will be a pleasure for me to serve you. Now. one thing more. Tell me why you did not destroy that paper upon which your uncle had written Mr. Marvel's name, accusing him of the crime. That was a dangerous bit of evidence to keep if you wished to shield him." "Yes, I know, but it is just because it seemed so conclusive that I did keep it. I thought that I should be able to prevent its existence from being discovered, but in that I was sadly mistaken. I kept it for this reason. I was willing to shield Mr. Marvel at any sacrifice, because—because I love him.. But I should never have received him again so long as I knew him to be or thought that he was a criminal. Suppose that he had gone away, and then should return after a year or two, never having been publicly accused? Don't you see how terrible my position would be? To be obliged to accuse him of a crime when I had no proof?" "Exactly.- You were willing to sup press the evidence to save him, but you preserved it to save yourself. Very proper perhaps, but, you see, very risky, considering your primary purpose. Of course that paper will tell against him now. Then there is the matter of the locket. That certainly looks very bad. How do you account for that?" ."Why—why—don't you see? That was my last hope destroyed. When heard that Walter—Mr. Marvel—had taken the locket and remembered that 1 had found it tight in my dead uncle's hand, the whole thing seemed too terribly certain. But now"— "Ah'l You have a theory?" "Mr. Barnes, you men never quite understand us women. We love a man and after that we cling to him forever. We hope against reason and manufacture reasons upon which to build hope. be had been in Worcester, hiding front; the authorities.

So, ever since the inquest, I have striven to find am explanation of this locket affair. There is one possibility that has occurred to me. Mr. Marvel certainly entered the house after I had retired and probably while my uncle was yet alive. May he not have dropped the locket and may not my uncle, disturbed by some noise, have searched the house and accidentally have found the locket?" "That is very well argued, Mies Lewis, but I fear that it will not prove to be true. Unless Mr. Lewis was killed immediately after he would scarcely have retained the locket in his hand. Still, it is a possibility. It would do at a pinch in trying to confuse a jury; but, nnlesa I be greatly mistaken, nothing of that son; will be necessary. I hope to discover the whole solution of this singularly complex affair." "Where will you begin?" "Where Burrows did, only I will go the other way. He followed the man away from the scene of the- murder and allowed himself to get on a false scent. I will trace him to the place from which he came and there discover his identity. Meanwhile you must go home again. When is the funeral?" "It is to be this afternoon." "Thee I go back with you. Bnt, first, there is something that I can find out, even here in Boston.
