pacifically, pressing lhe angry, glaring lawyer back Inlo his chulr with a
jiiiihiiiii.Iii hand upon Ills shouldur. I
then said In him:
"Vou   might   appropriately   relate j
wbat your business  lasl  tilghl  wilb
Mr. Page was.'
'   "I will"—bluntly—"lo you."
The proposal being a reasonable
one, I agreed lo defer the matter.
"However," continued I, "while you

upon which i waul unllgliloniuuiii.
Reserve your personallHe* fnr anotber

Neither spoke, each wulllug, at it

glance travelled between lltu Iwo, and
finally s'.'iii.ii upon the secretary,
Whose   lo»g,   norvous   lingers   were
1 obviously, one might stand to get conveniently at the small |»fe thus dis
closed.
It wqa alsp manifest that sumebody
had been doing that very thing. For
the safe door stood open, aa well aa
the Inner door; and a flash of the candle, a aingle brief glimpse, assured nt*
that—whatever It might have held—
it waa now aa empty as on th* day It
'left the maker'* hand*.
-But, slay- there wat something,
though not 111 the safe. I look tb*
candle from Burke, and went dawn the
«i«iis. On the cement floor, In th*
shadow of the open safe door, wa* a
vlsltiqg oard, yellowed by age. I
thought It blank at first; but on turning It over I saw tome writing, faint
and faded but legible, whioh had been
penned by a feminine hand:
"I pray lliul you he tltowtrtd with
all llm liloaslniia of the aaaaon. With
lovu from CUAHA."
And In Iho lower lefl-hand comer, a
ilnii' waa written—«q old, old dalal
"■Xmas, 1867."
Nett I satisfied myself that lha
doors had not been forced, and lhat
every compartment wa* Indeed, amply.
Then I looked back over my ahoulder,
lo hu puitled by the baffling, Indecipherable tlare of llttrke'i lawny
eyet. Waa ho looking al me. al Ih*
reaved safe, or al the pulhello llltla
reminder, which I wat holding In my
hand, of that long-ago Christina* pre-
sent? Thotlgh I could nol be certain,
I aomehow full lhat hi* Interest was,
at the moment, Intense, and Ibat I had
been mlslakun in thinking bim *

As I sllppod iho .-im. ■ mn card into

harshly upon tny medllallona,
"Ho   is,- have a thief lo deal With
