OFTME MIDNIGHT SUN"ETC. ^Copyright, 1S95, lay American Press Association.] Thero was but one recourse left, and I was in the middle of the road aart turned ;ut barely enotigb to let him jiass-wit'a the wheels almost grazing ray hips. This gave me the best view possible in the gloom of the driver, and I Was almost positive that he was the one who aad taken Howard from the railway station. "Why don't you keep out of the Way?" he roughly demanded, bringing that was almost as unsubstantial as tho fabric of a dream. The man Howard ..and his wifo (as I believed her to be) lyere connected in some inconceivable --•Way with tho abstraction of tho Nana niby. They were tho ones therefore to be studied, to bo watched, to be shadowed and solved. I determined to do it. Mr. Brown has given my account of tow on the afternoon preceding the robbery I followed the two to the little New Jersey town of Eahway and saw them leave tho station in n cab. They were driven too fast to follow them on foot, and had I done so in a carriage the •chances were a thousand to one I would Siave been discovered and my progress in that direction effectually blocked forever. Some other means must be devised, and I was not long in hitting upon it. About noon on the following day a •ragged, unkempt tramp was put off the train ak Elizabeth for refusing to pay his fare. Left to his own resources and .•meekly swallowing the gibes and sneers of the trainmen, he slouched off down the railroad and began "counting the ties" leading southward in the direction -of Philadelphia. It is not many miles from Elizabeth •to Rah way, and I reached the latter town about 2 o'clock in tho afternoon where I decided to indulge in an iiidef .inito rest. Thero is littlo uso in attempting any rrole unless you do it thoroughly. Besides a loaded revolver and a number of cartridges, I carried more than $50 stowed away in my ragged garments. Jn .the latter respect I may not have differed materially from others of my assumed class, but it was a business secret which was carefully guarded from others. 'Slumping off down town, I stopped .-at several places to ask for food. One .good lady offered me a substantial meal if I would saw some wood for her; but, • .like a veritable vagrant, I replied that my constitution would not permit me ?to indulge in manual labcr, much as I vdesired, and I went off hungry. I had selected the street down which 'I saw tho cab drive a couple of nights before, but tho turnings and intersections became so frequent that I was at ;.aloss in which direction to go. It would -not "be •wise to guess when the chances •••were all in favor of my going wrong. _ JT would know the driver of the cab if 'I met him, but he was not at the station when I first reached it, and I now •drifted "back to the same point. It was -yet some .time .before the arrival of the : vtrain on which the man and woman '•hadl come, but they might take a differ. ent one, and I meant to be as certain as .1 could well be. .Tho first thrill of hope came when I -«vw w man waiting for the train. He must have received some intimation of their coming, though it was not to be supposed that he would let any job slip if it did not interfere with his engagement With the ones in whom I was so .much interested. The hours dragged slowly by, the rtrains stopping frequently. My character compelled me to keep at a distance, •but I never lost sight of my cabman .and managed to gain a fair sight of the passengers who disembarked. It was wearisome waiting, but just .as it was beginning to grow dark my reward came. CHAPTER X. The East Lidian was alone. I waited at the lower end of tho platform unti I saw him walk briskly to the cab Which had borne him and his compan •ion away some nights before. Then I hurried down tho street as far as was prudent. At tho first turn I paused, still playing my part of a vagrant so well -that I was euro no suspicion would attach to me. I was certain now of being able to trace the carriage a portion if not the whole distance. Darius Howard seemed to be in haste, •for tho cab rattled off at a lively pace. Jt wheeled abruptly at my corner and ..sped down tho avenue toward tho open -country, with me following us fast as if not faster than was discreet. If I could .see where tho next turu was made, the «hauce of success was fair. The autumn light was closing in. 'Tho street lamps were lit and shining •.from tho houses on the right and left, .•and in a few minutes tho vehicle was .beyond sight. Two other cabs passed rqo while 1 was hurrying on, and a few ^'hundred yards out I came to a forking of tho ways. I stopped, for there wa& 110 means of knowing the right course, But for the fact that several vehicle; .had followed tho 0110 I had in mind I might have found tho clew by exaroin jug tho roadway, but that aid was no . at my command.

"It Would serve you right to run over you.'' 1 was so angered that 1 whipped out my revolver and discharged one barrel. The bullet passed close to his head, but took care that it should not hit him. With an exclamation of affright, he Whipped up his horse, leaning forward to avoid my next shot, and speedily Vanished in tho gloom. "One of the penalties of my character, '* I reflected, shoving tho Weapon back in place. "Ho considers toe fait game, forgetting that the crushed worm inay turn." It was chance for scientific reasoning. When the cabman passed mo at first, his animal was going on a smart trot, which was probably maintained until he reached his destination. The time between his passing and meeting me, provided his paco had been kept up, was sufficient for him to go, say, a half mile. Therefore tho house I was seeking was a quarter of a milo distant. There was liable to be a flaw in this logic, for ho might have varied his speed or remained awhile at tho place where his passenger alighted. A variation of ten minutes either way would throw my calculations out of alignment. Furthermore, tho residences were so numerous that they wero continually appearing on my right and loft, and it was likely that I would stop short or pass beyond the right one. Tho only construction to bo put upon these stealthy visits of the Howards was that they and perhaps others were engaged in criminal business. Else why their watchfulness against espionage? I might speculate for days as to the nature of that business and be none the wiser. I clung to only one conclusion. It had to do in some way with the theft of tho Nana Hahib ruby. Clear on this point, it was fair to suppose that in coming to this country place they would seek some secluded building, with the clanger of detection at the minimum. Consequently it was idle to fix attention upon any of tho new, fine looking houses near the highway. Tho one where they stopped was back some way from the road and had no occupants except such as wero necessary to look after it. I slackened my paco when confident of being near where the cab had left its passenger and turned back. I was peering to the right and left in the gloom when I exclaimed in an undertone: "Eureka! I have found it!" It was tho very spot I had in mind.' A long lane, bordered on each side by tall shade trees, led to a house fully 200 yards distant from the main highway and so hidden among trees, as I-soon earned, that, except in the winter season, it could not be seen by any one passing over tho road. A more secluded Iwelling could not be found in a long search, and the starlike twinkle from the surrounding trees showed the house to be occupied. I turned into the lane, the gate of •which must have been removed loug.be- fore, and walked silently up the avenue in tho gloom, the conviction strong upon me that I was on the verge of important events. To rny surprise, the sound of carriage wheels broke the stillness. A vehicle was coming from the house toward the highway. I stepped to one side among the shadow of the trees and waited. The carriage was approaching, with the horso on a walk, as if the driver was uncertain of his bearings in the gloom. From that I decided that ho was not familiar with the place. The obscurity was so deep that I only caught the outlines of vehicle, animal and driver as they moved past, and en- ering the highway turned toward the ,owu. What I saw, however, showed jhat it was a cab, such as are seen around tho railway station at all hours of tho day. "I was mistaken," was my conclu- Will be understood, Wets learned afterward. The house was a very old one, made of stone, with a broad piazza along the front, and had been in the possession of one family from a few years subsequent to the Revolution. A man was walking back and forth on tho porch, as if in deep meditation. 1 could follow his progress by the sound of his feet, by the glow of his cigar and bv tho dim outlines of his figure as he passed in front of the two Wiiidows of the large room, in which a. light was burning. The Windows, however, Were curtained so effectually that not a glimpse could be obtained of the interior. I stole from tree to tree, sheltered by the profound gloom in which I moved, tntil I was as close to the individual as It Was possible to get Without discovery. "He's my man," Was the tlv -iht Which urged me to the furthest vei*u of prudence. "I presume he is thinking about the great ruby." Of course at that time I knew nothing of the second stone which Mr. Howard sold to Burling, the jeweler. What was I to gain by watching the figure of this person as he was dimly seen when moving in front of the curtained window? If I were writing fiction, I would have only to make him soliloquize and reveal the thought surging through his brain, whereby he would give me the very knowledge I was seeking, but unfortunately tho detective in real life does not obtain information in that way. My man hummed the air of an opera, and now and then, when ho removed his cigar from his mouth, I fancied once or twice that ho was muttering to himself. But, though I strained my acute sense of hearing, I did not catch a single word. So long as matters remained as they were, I would never bo a whit the wiser. Finally he halted in front of the nearest window and stood looking off in the gloom. His cigar was nearly smoked out, and he puffed rapidly for a minute or two and then flung it from him. It fell almost at my feet, and I recoiled, fearful that it might reveal me. But that was impossible. The individual's form as outlined before the window was that of a large and graceful man, just tho size of Darius Howard, and he wore the same kind of hat. There could be little doubt that he was the same. Suddenly he wheeled and entered the house, the door opening and closing so quickly that my view of him gave mo no additional knowledge. I stood debating what step next to take, when I became aware that another party had arrived on the scene. ion. ' 'This is the carriage which I tried to follow. The driver has tarried awhile at the house and is therefore late in returning." I resumed my approach of the dwelling, where a light gleamed from one of tho windows. As I drew near I kept among tho shadows as much as possible, for nothing was more probable than 4 wan was walking bacit and forth. eomo watcher was OH the alert for suspicious visitors. No burglar could have been more guarded than I, and when J stood within a dozen yards of the front door J was certain no living person had seen me. The lane which I had followed, to that point bad no fence o« either side, nor was there any surrounding the house* which, as I have stated, stood among group of trees, some of which have been, joo years ol'4. Tbe avenue, l«464 mw% CHAPTER XI. The new arrival was a dog of immense size. I first heard a low, threatening growl and then felt him sniffing at my heels. One of the first thoughts of a vagrant in approaching a house is whether he is likely to come in contact with a canine, but that danger had not occurred to me. I spoke in a soothing voice to the huge dog, whose nose touched my hip, for I was anxious to establish friendly relations with him, but he knew his duty, and his manner became so threatening that I saw I must retreat. It was clear that he meant "business," and the safest place for me was somewhere else. It would not do to break into a run, for nothing inspires a dog with more courage than the sight of a fleeing person, and it is the same if tho pursuer is a man. I tried to walk with a certain dignity, uttering all the conciliatory expressions at my command and even trying to pat his enormous head. But a snap at my hand and more growls showed that ho was in no mood to be conciliated. He knew I was an intruder, and ho must have been taught to adopt summary measures with persons of that class. Ha kept close to me, still growling, and seemed to be trying to settle in his mind tho best method, of making an attack. Thus matters stood when we reached the head of the avenue and I walked briskly toward the highway. . How I yearned to break into a run and dash with speed of tho wind to the main road! But, sprinter though I was, I could be no match for that huge creature. Suddenly ho made n snap at my heels, and with an involuntary exclamation I leaped into the air ancl was off like a deer. "Let me alone or I'll kill you!" I shouted, drawing niy revolver. It is not to bo presumed that the canine grasped tho meaning of my threat, or if bo did he was not frightened, for be was upon me the next instant. He landed upon my shoulders and would have borne mo to the earth had I not shaken him off. But his blood was up, ant] he was like a jungle tiger, He meant to tear me to shreds and would have done it the next minute had J wot prevented, I had faced around and saw the terrible beast leap straight at niy throat. A sweep of my left arm averted this danger, and. as be gathered himself for another spring J. let fly with three shots of my revolver, That settled biro- "When, a man has to 'decide between billing a dog and be- jng killed by bins, be is not apt to hesitate.

The route was so familiar that I could not go astray, and in duo time I saw the stone house arnong the partly denuded trees on my left. There was the avenue, lined oil eadh side With the towering poplars', and I slackened my pace at the very spot whore 1 had given the quietus to tho dog that so sorely beset me. Ho must have been a favorite, for his body had been removed and doubtless given decent burial. "They will be sure to buy another, but it isn't likely they have him yet," was my comforting reflection as I strode up tho lane, stepped upon the porch and gave a resounding summons with the polished brass knocker on the door. It was opened by a colored Woman, Who looked inquiringly at me. "I wish to see Mr. Darius Howard," I said pleasantly. "He doesn't live here, sir." "I mean the dark haired, black eyed gentleman who comes out from New York occasionally. Sometimes his wife is with him. She is very handsome." The servant was quite intelligent and surveyed me sharply. "Mr. Hickman lives here. I nevah heard of the pussous you name." "Who compose this family, please?" "Mr. Hickman, his mother and sister. Dere's nobody else, sir." At this juncture a pleasant looking woman of 60 or 70, hearing the voices, came from the sitting room and inquired what was wanted. ' 'Possibly I have mistaken the name," I said courteously, "but I was under the belief that it was Mr. Howard who lives here." "No. I was born in this house and have lived in it all my life, as did my father and grandfather. No person of the name of Howard has ever lived or boarded here. I am sorry to disappoint you." "It does not specially matter. Thank you for your kindness," I replied, lifting my hat and bowing myself off the porch. Nothing could be more certain than that this old lady had spoken the truth. The parties whom I was seeking had never crossed the threshold. All that I had done before was a blunder. So it goes. I must begin over again. I had just turned from the lane into the highway and was walking toward town when a cab wheeled around a bend in the road and approached at a spanking gait. My heart beat a little faster when I recognized the driver whom I had vainly attempted to follow, and who, I was now satisfied, was the one that had bought his whip about my shoulders and received a great scaro therefor. Before ho fairly saw me I wheeled like a flash and walked in the direction he was driving. If he noticed my action, he thought nothing of it. I carelessly looked up as ho passed and through the glass window of the cab saw the face of a woman. There could be no mistaking those eyes, hair and matchless features—the most entrancing on which I had ever $ftss*i the first t would iaate belieted that this Was the same, . By the time I reached the mouth of the lane the cabman Was tiirniiig out of it; He hafdly noticed ine, but I saw the interior of his vehicle as he swept by. It was empty. 1 decided to postpone m? little game of bluff until 1 could think it over. So 1 Walked past the lane, With only a glance at the broad, low stone building, partly revealed through the autumn trees. I had made some progress. I had located the house Mr. Howard and his wife Were in the habit of visiting for eonie purpose Which at present could not be guessed, in leaving New York and Jersey City—that is, so far as I had leariied^-thoy took every precaution to avoid being followed, even to the ex* teat of not recognizing each other or sitting in the same car.

At the entrance to the lane I paused to look nnd listen. Far in tho distance 1 heard the faifct sound of a locomotive whistle. Some one called to atiothef, an Odd eddy in the air bringing the voice so neat that I instinctively glanced to my tight to see the speaker, though I kneW he was a mile aWay.

I fixed the locality of tbo house clearly in niy mind, so that if it was approached in the night no mistake would be made. I knew tho distance it was from town and how long it would take to reach it. Whether I would come on foot or in a carriage was to bo decided later. In short, I needed an hour or so to settle upon the course to follow.

I was now so far in the country that tho dwellings were widely separated, tho next house being a fourth of a mile off and on the same side of the highway. It was near noon when I presented myself at the door asking whether I could obtain dinner, for which, of course, I expected to pay. The occupants were a kindly old couple and their- grown son. The meal was on the table, and noting my smart appearance they invited me to ait with them, the old lady asserting that they could not think of accepting pay. I forced a dollar upon them, much against their will, and naturally rose in their estimation. Nothing was easier than to turn the conversation upon the gossip of the neighborhood, during which I secured about all the information they possessed about their next door neighbors. The name of tire head of the latter household was Isaiah Bridges, and he was the twin brother of my host, whose given name was Nathan. The former couple had no children, having lost their only daughter a long time before. They had owned and lived upon the farm for 40 years. My informants seemed to know little about the visitors of their relatives. They were aware that a very distinguished looking gentleman and his wife, foreigners they thought, had been boarding there off and on for the past few weeks. They occupied most of the upper floor, but associated with no one in the neighborhood and avoided making acquaintances. Mrs. Bridges told me she had called once or twice when she knew the man and his wife were up stairs, but they did not show themselves, and neither my host nor hostess had seen either except at a distance. After establishing friendly relations with my new friends I asked to be allowed to stay with them for a few days, explaining that if I found it necessary to remain longer i would send for my luggage. They expressed a modest fear that their accommodations were not good enough for me, but the bargain was quickly made. My friend Mr. Brown had omitted from his narrative a fact which must now be given. There was a strong resemblance between the appearance of Mr. Darius C. Howard arid myself. We were of similar height and build and wore our beards in tho same style — peculiarities which I noticed when I first saw him, My hair, however, is auburn and my eyes hazel in color, the difference being GO marked that no one could mistake either of us for the other by daylight or in the glare of gas or electric light. At night, however, such mistake would be natural. Ever since I took hold of this business the fancy had been flickering in my brain that perhaps it was possible to turn this personal resemblance to ao- oounfc. If I could make Mrs, Ho^yard think I was he, even for a brief, time, ohe might reveal some ., interesting secrets. But the scheme was a quixotic one, i could not imitate his voice and manner closely enough to deceive her, and more than likely when the husband and wife talked they employed their own Ian* guage instead of English, Besides in what possible way could I gain the chance to make the test? Another question presented itself-were this strange couple in fear of natives of their own country or of Ajwi" can officers? These and a multitude of similar queries ran through my brain on the starlit night when I left my tempprary home at Nathan Bridges' and, strolled along the highway in the direction of the dwelling where ((he interesting pie spent a portion of their time, The Ma$ which I h ft d in augd, to go to the h9\ise daripg the 4ayi resenting to. the old M? that I county officer who had, sailed to assets tbe. prpperty, and it w»9 necessary .sanjj«e tbe pjrejakeii. liwasa iwtifloe, but I m not The Englneef's Salute, Nearly every engine ou roads ruhnifig into Chicago blows its whistle in n different Way upon entering of leaving the city.

The flounders and tho white perch don't caro a snap which way ho swims, and they turn out for him mighty little, and he soon tires of it, turns and swims with the rest, and then ho mokes a better showing, for he is a quicker and more powerful swimmer than any of them, and he easily goes to the front. But as at first he had perversely started in tho wrong direction now he mars his victory by occasionally cutting across ono end of tho pool and joining tho procession nearer the head than ho belongs, tho flounders and tho whito perch all following the whole course. Tho blackflsh tiros of it all protty soon nnd withdraws altogether, but tho flounders and tho whito perch keep right along. —Now York Sun. TWO HANDED WHIST. A New Game Which Is a Great Improvement Over "Double Dummy." Old whist players will probably greet with suspicion the announcement that it is possible to play an interesting game of whist with less than four hands. "Double dummy" ancl "single dummy" were nevot , popular with the votaries of this game. They wore classed with old maid and casino and other games which allowed moro or less gossip while the game was in progress ancl did not allow tho display of any great amount of • thought. A new game, however, has boon introduced for two hands, which, while it undoubtedly is not so good as a four handed game, still is moderately interesting and affords a chanco for tho display pf a good cloal of skill. Whoro this game originated tho writer does not know. In Canada they call it "Yankee whist," without being able to give tho etymological significance of tho name. Thogamo is played by dealing the ontiro pack to the two players. The cards aro picked up indiscriminately, and each player places in a row before -him 13 piles of cards. Ho bogins by placing tho first card face downward on the table, and the next ono face upward on top of tho first card laid down. This operation is repeated until tho }3 piles are built by each player. This loaves 18 cards exposed on the table on each side, and 13 tho value of which are not known, as the faces aro turned downward, Tho play then begins with the nondeal- er, and tho gamo is carried through tbcr same as in an ordinary game of whist, As soon as the card which is exposed w played, and tho trick on which it is played is taken, the card underneath is also turned up. This process finally causes all tbe cards to be exposed, but of course pot until tho game is well along toward tho close, Consequently tbore is always enough uncertainty about tho value of your opponent's band and tbe strength of your own to allow a good deal of conjecture «»!* thoughtful playing.
