inside tbe first fish he caught was tha
watch. The watch wus still going
when recovered, and, more than that,
had nil lost or gained a second in the
months that had elup-ed since the fish
swallowed it. This curious circumstance naturally caused some investigation, and it was found that like
many other apparent mysteries was
easily accounted for. The watch waa
of the modern kind for which no key
was necessary. It's stem had su
lodged in the fish's internal machinery
that every tune the creature moved his
jaw the protruding wheel was turned
part way round, lu this wsy the
watch was regularly wound day after
day. The tish hud to eat, aud iu the
act of doing so unconsciously wound
the wutch, tlie cuse of which was
touiuwbut affected by the chemical
action of the fish's stomach.

By the accident of my presence in
the New Holland Hotel ut the moment
when Holinan Brand, tha broker, met
his,strange fate, nnd by my acquaintance with the detective in the case, 1
obtained a* knowledge of it which
should enable ine to add something of
interest to tlie nccounts already published.
Mr. Brand, it will bo remembered,
was of the firm of Brand & Avery,
with offices ou Pine street, near Broadway. When the New Holland was
opened, a little more than a year ago,
the linn established a branch office
there, with un entrance Irom the
avenue and another from thc main
hull of the hotel.
I was passing through the hall
when the outcry consequent upon the
sudden death of Mr. Brand roso discordant above thc blending voices ot
tbegi-eiit house and the busy street.
There wns some hundreds of people
within sound of that crv, and all of
them, I venture to say, stood still, as
I did, arrested in their various pursuits by tbe transcending interest of
tlenth. For there was that in the
alarm which meant dentil, und no one
could mistake it.
Immediately, u boy with a scared
face rushed out of tho broker's office
into the hull. Catching sight cf uu
elderly gentleman, who chanced to be
directly before the door, the boy cried
out: "You're Dr. Bell, ain't youV
They sent mo to find n doctor."
"I... "1,111 Dr, Bell," wus tho reply,
, "Mr. Brand's dropped dead," replied
tlio boy.    '-I saw bim do it."
Horror nt tlie occurrence nnd pride
in his share of it seemed to be contending in the youth's mind. I have observed the siimir phenomenon in persons
of mature years, including myself..
We think better of ourselves when
ciilitinity..taki's us into ber confidence,
Indeed, I.have seen n man saved from
suicide by .the new interest in himself
thut came fn.ui bis chimin: witnessing
of a distressing catastrophe.
Dr. Bell run into the broker's oliiee,
and I, being conveniently near him,
followed close upon bis heels. Otherwise. 1 should not have got in, for a
polrcemiiti who bail entered from the
aveiiue,,.immeiliately closed tlie door
coiiimiiiiicuting with the hotel, und
denied admittance to till save those
who could givo a better reason for desiring it than idle curiosity us I could
A tall young mnn had just locked
the street door, and was then engaged
in pulling up the similes. Almost tbo
whole of tbe front of the office wns
glass; and already there were a hundred people looking in.
Theie were not more than half a
dozen persons in the office besides those
who. have... been mentioned. Two of
them were evidently employes. Another I recognized as Harold Brand, | case was sure to be.
nephew of the broker, and his assistant iu the management of the office.
The others seemed to be players of the
stock game.
The nephew stpoil beside a chair in
which snt Holinan Brand in an attitude so natural that I could not believe
him to be dead. His handsome face,
framod in abundant gray hair, showod
not a truce of pain. On tho contrary
its expression was eloquent ot happiness. He wus us one transfigured, If
the bliss of heaven bad been revealed
to him iu the moment when his soul
put off its earthly vesture, thus ami
not otherwise should the mortal part
have echoed the rapture of the spirit.
Dr. Hell had hurried to the ileml
man's side, but litter n few .seconds
spent in the ordinary tests Im hail
stepped buck. When I turned to bim
I found him gazing upon the corpse
with uu interest equal to my own, but
of a different nature, It was a scientific experiment to him.
The impressive silence was broken
ut last by Harold Brand, who asked if
there was any hope.
������None whatever," replied the physician.    "He is quite beyond recall."
'���It was terribly sudden," said the
young man, with u shudder. "Have
you unv idea what was tho cause"1"
"I have u very distinct idea," said
Dr. Bell, "but it will be hard to got
legal proof of it "
"Great heaven!     Do you suspect���"
"Poison," said  the  Doctor gravely.
"There is every indication of it."
"Impossible!" exclaimed Harold
Brand.    "You must be mistaken."
"Did you soe your uncle eat or
drink anything just before lie was
"I remember that he drank a glass
of water."
Tliere was tho ordinary water cooler
in u corner of tlie office. Dr. Bell
walked up to it, and smelted the glass
which stood beside it.
"I can detect nothing here," he said.
"However, the glass should be si.vcd
for examination."
"Leave it there," snid the policeman.
"I'll set '111111 it isn't disturbed. I
think Coroner Robertson will be here
iu a few minutes. He bus been notified, and he lives near."
There wus u pituse, uud then at Dr.
Bell's request Harold Brand related the
circumstances of his uncle's death.
They were very simple.
Hu had been iu tlie office about an
hour, and hud dictated some letters.
Then he had written one. It lay
sealed before hiin on his desk. I
glanced ut it, und rend tlie uddress:
Corn wull, N.Y.
Dr. Bell ulso glanced ut it.
"A relative, of course,'' he said.
"I   never   heard   of   her,"   replied
j\t this moment the coroner arrived.
The tall young man whom I have
mentioned us having locked the street
door ami pulled up the curtain admitted Dr. Robertson. Then he tinned,
and to my great surprise I saw that he
was Horace Preble. I had not seen
his face before, ami baa not recognized
bis figure in thn single glance which I
hnd est upon il. Hu hud u wonderful gift of making himself inconspicuous, as I bud previously remarked.
He detained tbo coroner u moment
by lhe door, and thero was n whispered conference, at the close of which the
coroner camo forward, und suio:
"I must request all of you except
Dr. Bell and .Mr. Brund to step into
the inner office for a moment."
Two of the gentlemen present protested against detention, but on being
assured that the time would be very
brief they yielded, and walked toward
the room designuted by tho coroner.
Meanwhile I bad uiiido my way to
Preble's side, and hud hurriedly begged
him tu save mo from the loss of so interesting a spectaclo as the preliminary investigation of   this   remarkable
"Certainly," ho said, in a voice
audible to tho coroner; "thero is no
objection to your remaining."
Turning to Harold Brand, he nsked
tor further details of Uio broker's
'���He   bud   just   culled   to Walter,'"
suid Brand, referring   to lhe boy wbo
hud run out into the hull ot tho,hotel,
us 1 have described.    "Ho told him to
mail a letter.     Suddenly he half rose
from his chair, anil then fell buck, Hc
did not   cry   otU-, but   uttered a faint
sound liko a  sigh, but  rather of  contentment tliiin pain."
"Who wns it that screamed?"
"Did you hear anyone?"
"Yes; I was just passing the door."
"I   think you   must have hoard the
hov.    Ho was frightened, of cou.'se."
"No; it was some one else. Was it
"Perhaps I did. You see, I run to
his side uud lifted his hand. It toll
back lifeless. Then I think I cried out
in terror. But I luul forgotten. Tl
terrible uffair has nearly driven mo oir.
of my senses. For instance, I have
not even nsked who you are, and by
what, right you question me?"
"I   urn   a   detective, tit   present in
charge   of   the   case." replied Preble.
Now   ubout   that   letter.     It   isn't
stamped, I perceive."
"That's strange; I saw the stamp in
his hand. I remember that he took it
out of a letter on his desk."
"You were watching him?"
"I was waiting until he hnd finished witb his letter. I had something
to say to hiin."
"And this was the letter which he
took the stump from?" said Preble,
taking one from the desk.
It was addressed iu u feminine band
to Holinan Bland.
"Yes." responded Harold,
"Do yon know its contents?"
"Perhaps wo  would better read it."
"Why?     What bearing can it have
on the case?"
"1 will show you. If my theory is
conect it plays a considerable part in
this tragedy."
He put his   arm   about  the neck of
the  dead, and, with   his   hands very
gently forced the jaws to open.
������Look!" he cried.
We nil pressed forward; and we sa\
upon ihe tip of the dead man's co'nglic
one of the largo pottage sn mpr, 'f tl
Columbian  pattern.
"Poisoned!" exclaimed tlio coromr.
"That should make the case clear.'
The writer of that letter is themur-
Ue took the letter from the envelope
uud read aloud, us follows :
"Holinan Brand : Why do you not
answer my letters? I have written
three nnd you have not noticed tliein.
Wo tue destitute I care nothing for
myself, but my mother���whom, your
brother married in affluence and bus
left iu beggary���is dying for want of
proper nourishment, uinl the medicines
whicli ber illness demands. Whatever
yon may hnve believed ut the time of
thnt marriage, surely you will uot let
her die in this way, when so small a
part of your vast wealth would save
At this point the coroner paused.
"The remainder of tbo letter was
evidently added at a later period." said
be, showing it to tlio detectivo. "Tlie
writing at this point changes. It is
hurried uud nervous,"
" 'I will force you at least to answer
this,' " he continued reading. " 'I inclose stump for a reply. Can you be-
lievo me that this stamp costs me more
than I can uffoi-d? Do you know whut
such poverty as that means? You
daio not for sbnme's snke, refuse to
answer nie, though it be to tell ine
that we cun expect nothing from you.'
It is signed, 'Margaret Brand.'"
"Can it be possible," the coroner
continued, "thut so good a mnn as I
know your uncle to have beon ullowed
bis brother's widow aud her child lo
suffer liko this?"
"I know nothing about it," snid
Harold.. "Ho. never mentioned tbem
to me."
"That letter," said Preble, pointing
to the one which the broker had written, "will probably enlighten us on
that point. I would suggest that you
open it."
"I hesitate to do that," responded
the young mnn. "It is addressed to
ber. Yet in such a case it, is necessary, I suppose."
He tore open tho envelope and read
as follows:
"My hoor child : Beforeyou receive
this you will have had such help as
money cun givo. Youi letter, four
days delayed, came to me this morning. 1 instantly telegraphed to Mr.
Edward Morton, of Cornwall, one of
the best of my friends. Yon will have

this wretched uffair. 1 have never received yonr litters.. I did not know
where yon were. My last information was that you and your mother j
were in England, nnd comfortably
provided for. I hnve tried to find you
but vainly. If I could have done so,
you both would have hud a home with
mo. I am childless and alone, and
you would have been a thousand times
welcome. So fur from cherishing tlie
old resentment. I have .long repented
of my behaviour in regard to iny
brother's marriage. If tliere is to be
forgiveness, it must come from your
mother, not from me.
"The money which you think I grip
so tightly will be yours and hers somo
day.      For years, while I have prosecuted my  fruitless search for you, my
will has named yoi. for the bulk of my
fortune.    But all these matters may be
left until we meet.     You will wonder
why I have not como to you myself.

would   havo  done so   much for her?
What do, you find there, Doctor?"
This lust question was addressed to
Dr, Bell, who during the reading of
the letter had not been idle. Assisted
by Preble, he had removed the stamp
from the mouth of the murdered man,
nnd hud placed it upon a sheet of
paper. Then he hud made a second
and much more careful examination of
tbe body.
"There is but, one point so far," he
replied to tbe coroner's question. "The
stamp exhales a faint perfume���n most
unusual odor, extremely agreeable,
can be noticed ulso about the lips of
the dead man."
"Gelothania," exclaimed the detective. ' It is a poison discovered���and
named ���by a German chemist, who
seems to hare known more chemistry
than Greek. He meant tho name to
signify ' the joy of death.' "
