SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1804.
Th3 Missing Signet.
" All right.    Show hiin up, George!
Tlm scene was Mr. Hydenseko1
well-known oliiee iu Long Acre, nnd
the speaker was that estimable gentleman himself, addressing bis confidential cL-rk, who had just brought iu n
culler's card to his chief.
George disappeared, and soon return-
en with the visitor, fur whom hc
placed a chair, and then discreetly retired. The latter was a little, shrivelled oil man, with bent shoulder* and
a tottering gait, seemingly quite over-
weighed by the heavy fiirliiied overcoat
iu which he was chid. His face was
vory wrinkled, and, with its hollow
.chocks and sunken eyes, guvo every
indication of advanced age. But. in
the latter wore to be observed a
peculiar brilliancy and keenness,
which showed thut his mental activity
still remained unimpaired by bis physical decroptitude. They would have
lieen fine eyes, but for tbe'r expression
ol suspicious and uneasy cunning,
which, however, entirely spoilt his
f.icj nu 1 rendered him n verv disagreeable-looking old mail indeed.
'��� Mr. Hydenseko?" he enquired, in a
quavering voice.
"At your service, sir," replied lhe
detective.
" You know tne by name. Mr.
Hydensoke?"
"Everybody knows S.r Jacob True-
love," answered our friend with his
sail vest bow.
"I have come to consult you, Mr.
Hydcnseke, on a most private and
important matter. I need hardly say
that whatever I may tell you must be
regarded as strictly and absolutely
confidential."
"Q lite so," nodded Mr. Hydensoke.
"You may trust my discretion I assure
you."
"Thank yon; I feel that I etui.
Now, Mr. Hydcnseke, you know, per
Imps, that I utn a great collector of
antique gems?"
'��� I havii henrd that you possess
about the best private collection in
England."
"Well, I think I do. At least, I
am aware of nunc butter, with the
possible exception ol that belonging to
my friend, the Dukool X-���. ut B	
Castle. His father, you know, spent
fabulous sums iu acquiring rare specimens. He was a great connoisseur,
But his son hardly appreciates or
values his splendid collection sufficiently. However, that, has nothing to do
with the present cusc. What I have
come lo consult you about is this : I
hnve just been robbed of the most
valuable gem iu my whole collection."
" Ah!" said Mr. Hydenseke, laconically, screwing up his eyes and waiting to hear more.
"The gem in question," continued
the old man, in an excited voice, "is a
signet ring of the Roman Emperor
\espasian, a rare sort of blood-stone,
ongraved with n miniature Colcsseum,
and round it t he let tersT. F.V.I. (Titus
Flavius Vespasianus Imperntor), in a
setting of African gold.     The work-

1 was speaking just, now - the Duke ol
jX 's at B. Castle."
j     " When did you lirst miss this ring,
Sir Jacob?"
" Yesterday,   when    I   opened   my
i jewel -safe to arrange uud classify sonic ' signet
I neiv purchases." through
"And when had yon lust opened it
previously'/"
'���The day before Hint. I luul a call

Upon entering

abuiit une or iwo seals whicli 1 picked ste|
up lust mouth ill Brussels, and uf the
genuineness of which I wus not satisfied."
"The ring wns not missing then?"
" No j to i hut I can swear. The fact
is, Mr. Hvilensekc (and I mny us well
confess il at once), that I have a suspicion ���amounting almost tu n certainly thut .liinshikuff tuok the ring."
"Hem!" coughed Mr. Hydensoke,
performing his favorite operation of
scratching bis chin. " Yuu believe
that, do you ?"
"I am convinced of it."
"Have you communicated with the
police?"
"No; I have expressly lofrnined
from lining so. I must recover that
ring, Mr. Hydenseke" (dropping his
voice uinl speaking very impressively)
" without either scuiiilul or publicity.
In fact (and I have heard of your tluing
such things), I wish it got away from
Janshikoff without his knowlelge.
Tliere is a secret connected with it
whicli must never bo divulged."
"A dangerous secret?" inquired Mr.
Hydenseke.
"Yes; dangerous in a sense-that is,
if it were known in certain quarters
that I possessed the ring, I might be
obliged to hand it over to the original
owners, You remember that big jewel
scandal at the Vatican fifteen years
ago?"
"Perfectly."
'��� Well, a ring closely resembling,
that which we are discussing disappeared from the Pope's collection at
that time, and could ne-iei- be traced.
This ono-I mean the one I have just
lost���I picket! up at a seedy second-
liutid shop iu Paris two years back.
I paid a good price for it, ami I asked
no questions.    Y'ou take mo If"
"I think so, Sir Jacob," answered
Mr. Hydenseke, with his peculiar
smile.
"You will understand, then," the
other cont iu ued, "why I am anxious
to have tho matter kept strictly
private."
"Of course. And perhaps Jimshi-
kog took that into account���eh?'
" Most probably. He is a vory
sharp feilow. But now, Mr. Hydenseke" (he spoke very excitedly, leaning
over and placing bis hand on the detective's sleeve), "I must get that
signet?back, without delay. For if
Janshikoff once parts with it, goodbye to our cbuiicu of ever seoing it
again. Will you undertake the job
Mr. Hydenseke?"
"Whut's tho figure?" usked our
friend, thoughtfully,
"A cool thousand, and all expenses,"
" Very well, Sir Jacob, I'm your
man,"
Mr. Hydenseke now produced his
note-book, and put the baronet through
a lengthy catechism, jotting down his
replies in shorthand. At the ond of
this process whicli occnpied i.bont an
hour, Sir Jacob rose to take his departure.
"You will lose no time-no time.
Mr. Hydenseke, will you?" he said, in
a voice of absolute entreaty. "If I
fail to recover that signet, it will
almost kill inc."
After au hour spent in careful relief.'
tion ho summoned tliu most trustworthy member of his stuff, and instructed hi ill to keep a watch ou
Janshikoff lur the next twenty-four
hours,
lie did not, indeed, think it probable
that the astute dealer iu antiques
would attempt to dispose of his spoil
at present. Still it was b. tter to be on
the safe side, and to havo him kept
under cl si surveillance, wblie he (Mr.
Hydenseke) conducted certain preliminary investigations in another
direction.
Tbe [act was, a curious point had
struck the dcit cfive from the outset.
No one knew more than he did about
tho gr at jt w 1 robberies of the last
twenty years, and thnt famous scandal at the Vatican-of which Sir Jacob
bad spoken ���was nearly ns fresh in
Hydenseke's mind us if it luul occurred
yesterday. A client of his own bud
employed him on certain business connected with the sensational esclaudre,
and iu the oouiso of the 1 iqiiirics
which he then made he bad become
intimately acquainted with '.lie ins
iiiuT outs of tbe whole affair.
" I heard nothing ol a Vespasian
signet at the time I inn sure," solilou-
qnizp'l Mr. Hydenseke, frowning per
plexedly, "I will go und ask Pinker-
ton.    Piukertoii ii sure to know."
Acting on this resolve, he walked
round to Mr. P'llkertem's shop in
Wardonr street. Jeie niiih Fiukertoii
keeps an emporium for articles ol
virtu, which he knows more ubout
than any other iniiii in England. He
is nu old-fashioned mini; old-fashioned
in his appearance, his methods, more
piirtichirly, in his honesty. But he
is very shrewd ; gifted with a most
capacious memory} uud, us an expett
in Greek nnd Roman gcins, without an
equal.
