Aiid by so doing secure the Opening Chapters of our Next Serial, Soon to Appear, entitled: This is one of the most intensely interesting stories recently presented, and is one that will prove irresistible to every reader who peruses the opening lines. IIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIfMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIllllllllllllCI ELEGHNTLY ILLUSTRATED By one of the Leading Newspaper Artists of the Country. We append a few of the illustrations, with brief" extracts from the adjoining text, from which some idea can be gathered of the highly dramatic nature of the story. Samuel Gorby, of the Detective Office. The following extract is taken from the introductory paragraphs: •A crime has been committed by an unknown assassin, within a short distance of the principal streets of the great city, and is surrounded by an impenetrable mystery. Indeed, from the nature of the crime itself, the place where it was committed, and the fact that the assassin has escaped without leaving a trace behind, him, it would sacr.i as though the case itself had been tr.hcn bodily out of one of Gaboreatt's novel:;, and that his famous detective Lccocq o::!y would be able to unravel it. On the £-th day of July, at the hour of twenty minutes to two- o'clock in the morning, a, hansom cab drove up to the police station, in Grey street, St. Kilda, and the driver made the startling statement that his cab contained the body of a man whom he had reason to believe had been murdered." The incidents are then described in detail. "• • <Tho letter, however, v,-^3 r.ot to bo found in the desk, nor was it in the sitting room; they tried the bedroom, but with no better result; so Madge was nearly giving up the search in despair, when suddenly Calton's eyo fell 0:1 the v.-crite paper basket, which by somo unaccoi-.v.tr.jlo reason they had overlooked in their acr.:"'.:. • "Ho-,v long has that wasto paper basket been standing Kho that.'" ho asked, pointing to it. * * * "Circ weeks," repeated Calton, with a look r.t ll-.-.t".;-?. "Ah, and ho got tho letter four wccka K£O. Defend upon it, wo shall find it there."" Madgo gavo a cry, and, falling on her kneos, emptied tho basket out oil tho floor, and both she and' Calton. wero soon as busy among tho fragments of paper as though they were ragpickers. # * * Suddenly a cry broke from Madge, as sho drew out of the mass of paper a half-burnt letter, written ^ The Half-Burnt Letter. " on thick and creamy -looking paper. "At last," she cried, rising off her knees, oncf •tnoothiiijj it cut. "I knew ho had not destroyed it." ^ "I'll givo you money to save me," she shrieked; "good money—all mine—all mine. See—see—'ere—suverains," and, tearing her pillow open, she took out a canvas bag, and from it poured a gleaming stream of gold. Gold—gold—it rolled all over the bed, over the floor, away into tho dark corners, yet no one touched it, so enchained were they by the horrible spectacle of the dying woman clinging to life. She clutched up some of the shining pieces, and held them up to the three men as they stood silently beside the bed, bub her hands trembled so that the sovereigns kept falling from them on tho floor with metallic clinks. "All mine—all mine," she shrieked, loudly. "Give me my life—gold—money—cuss ye—I sold my soul for it—save me—give me my life," and, with trembling hands, she tried to force the gold on them. They did not say a word, but stood silently looking at her, whilo tho two girls in the corner clung together, •I Sold My Soul for It." and trembled with fear.

"That is tho ropo that's going to hang you," said Ivilsip, quietly, coining behind him, "for tho murder of Oliver Whyto." "Trapped, by G !" shouted the wretched man, wheeling round, so as to face Kilsip. He spraug at tho detective's throat, and they both rolled together on tho floor, but the latter was too strong for him, and, after a sharp struggle, ho succeeded in getting tho handcuffs on Hoi-eland's wrists.
