It was perhaps ten o'clock when Jo
took a notion to see the gallery. The
notion was quite sudden, too. She
even interrupted John to say so, apro
pos of nothing. We met Hap on the
Btairs as we went up. I remembered
afterward that he looked puzzled and
was flushed. a little. He shouted to
Burrows from the stairs.
"Who locked the'' card-room?"
"No one, sfr."
"It's locked; have it unlocked.
Where is Thomas?"
"I don't know, sir."
There was more anger in the way
he 6poke to Burrows than such a sim
ple thing warranted. He came up to
the gallery with us, glaring at the
card-room door as we passed.
"What's the matter?" I asked. "Do
you want to play poker?"
"No, but I want the room unlocked.
It's not supposed tare locked."
We climbed upward in silence.
"Well, you might quit looking like a
thundercloud," I suggested presently.
"I haven't been horrid, have I?"

Upon our entrance he turned and

Jo was surprised at the size of the
gallery, just as I had been. She hadn't
expected it. She walked the length
of the room, then turned back.
"Are all these pictures originals?"
"No," John answered her. "A few
are copies, but valuable copies."
"Let's see if I can pick the copies,"
she suggested, and walked the length
of the gallery again.
Hap and I dropped down on a
bench, but John followed her.
"That one," said Jo presently.
"Oh, that's easy, Jo," I cried. "The
original is in the National Gallery,
and you know It."
"No, that's a Greuze," John ex
plained. "Sorry," smiled Jo. "Greuze made
' 60 many heads, didn't he? Is the Lely

"Is that a Velasquez, or a copy?"
Hap asked her, and indicated the dis

looked at it a long time "copy!"
"It's disputed," John told her. "Five
experts say it isn't, twelve say it is.
Fred Mr. Hazard believed it was
an original and bought It."
'The old geezer used to frighten
rne when I was a kid," Hap remarked,
but he doesn't seem so fierce now.
His eyes always looked so well,
clean through, you know baleful, a
novelist would say. I'd call them wa
tery, now." He regarded the "old
geezer4 smilingly. "Pleasant rooking
custom, isn't he?"
"I'd hate to meet him up a dark
alley," John laughed.
"That's a copy, isn't it?" asked Jo,
and pointed to a picture on the oppo
"No, a real Van Dyke." John re
plied. "I'll quit guessing!" Jo exclaimed,
but she crossed the room and stood
for a long time before the Van Dyke.
"Aren't you afraid to leave all these
beautiful pictures here in the coun
try?" she asked finally, coming back
where we were.
"They are insured," Hap answered.
"Against fire, or theft?"
"Fire. No one wants to steal them.
No one has an opportunity. I'd like
to see a thief get away with that big
fellow. Jenkins sits on the steps all
winter with a gun."
"Are they protected now?"
"Well, not with a gun. There's no
need when we are here."
Hap tried the card-room door as we
descended; it gave to his touch and
swung open. He switched on the
lights and looked about. The room
was quite in order. I couldn't see
any cause for the pucker between his
eyes. He lighted a cigarette and
smoked it thoughtfully as we descend
ed the stairs. He smoked where he
pleased; he had learned to put the
ashes in his pocket. Occasionally he
would remove his cigarette from his
lips, regard the lighted end intently,
then smile, or frown, and smoke again.
I watched the performance, highly

pursued flippantly. "I haven't been
in the card-room for a month."
"Please don't, dear," he said quick

silly , lump got into my throat. My
feelings were always near the surface
when he was serious. I glanced up
and met that look in his eyes I was

Whatever else Hap intended to say
was not said. There was a commo

of feet and the overturning of a chair.
Natalie had fainted.
Some one, Mrs. Higginson I believe
it was, was shrieking excitedly to get
her into the open air, but Jo reached
her first, stretched her on the floor,
flopped her over, and deftly and quick

opened her eyes. She was a bit be

and when she had quite recovered
John Crowninshield and Benny Bliss
assisted her upstairs.
"I wonder If she lost anything that
time?" Jo said to mo when we were
I stared at her, startled.
"Then you think?"

plied calmly. "The men got out when

"At the piano, all the way across

"I know a way to find out," I said.
The Midnight Watch.
I knocked upon Natalie's door; Min
ette opened it. Instead of finding Na
talie in bed, as I expected,. she was
sitting near an open window, surpris
"Can I do anything for you?" I in
quired. "Nothing, thanks, unless you'll stay
and talk to me," she replied, rather
cordially. "I feel quite well and
cheerful, and I can't account for faint
ing. Won't you sit down? It's sweet
of you to come, dear."
I looked after Minette's retreating
"I came to ask you a question an
impertinent question," I said frankly,
for it was that, and I bated to be
hypocritical about it. "But I'd like to
stay with you if you really care to
have me. I hope you'll think I'm in

miss any of your jewels when when
I can't eay that I was surprised; I
know I felt absurdly relieved.
"I'm awfully glad. It looked so very
much like once before, that I was
afraid you had."
"You have no cause for worry. You
were not even there, my dear."
"Oh, no!" I exclaimed. "I was not
thinking of myself."
"I'm going to tell you something,"
she said suddenly, "something I had
decided to keep to myself. It's true I
did not miss anything when I fainted,
but I was not wearing all my jewels.
Tonight I yielded to an impulse in
wearing them. I had what the poker
players call a hunch. I was sure if I
left them here they would be taken.
But there were too many, they looked
absurd, and at the last moment I re
moved six bracelets, a pendant and a
rope of pearls." She arose and cross
ed to her dressing-table. "I've been
keeping everything locked since the
ruby was lost. Every day I have put
the jewel box in a different place. To
night, when I decided to leave some
of the jewels behind, I put them in the
box, yielded to another impulse, and
slipped the box under the pillow on
my bed, where it never bad been be
fore. I didn't lose anything when I
fainted, but the jewel box is empty!"
She opened it.
Poor Natalie! "
"But you must tell it," I urged when
I had sufficiently recovered from the
shock of it. "It's too important not
to. Everybody here is in danger un
less " I did not go on, but involun
tarily I glanced at the door where
Minette had gone out.
"I will not suspect Minette," she
said firmly, noticing the action. "She
was with my mother when I was born,
and she doesn't steal. There are a
thousand ways .to prove her inno
cent." I knew that in the same thought I
suspected her, and I remembered
Laura's argument that Minette was
not at the reception in town, or the
Abercrombies'. Also that at the very
minute the ruby was stolen Minette
was giving Natalie a massage. Min
ette distinctly was innocent.
"No, I shall not tell it," Natalie pur
sued, "not yet, anyhow, it's too ab
surd. And I shall rely upon your dis
cretion, my dear. When we see what
happens to Mr. Abbott, then "
I came to my feet with an exclama
tion. "You believe Mr. Abbott guilty!"
"I refuse to believe anything," she
"I beg your pardon," I said, "but I
thought you once told me you were
sure Mr. Abbott was not a thief."
"That was before I knew about the
emerald bracelet. My dear, I can't
reasonably believe he's innocent now.
There isn't another emerald bracelet
like that in the world. Detectives
found It in Mr. Abbott's possession,
he doesn't deny it; he can't."
"But they didn't find the ruby, and
whatever it was you lost at the Aber
combies,' " I protested.
"A sapphire and a diamond brace
let," she sighed.
"And before that? He's shielding
some one," I burst out. "I know it; I
feel sure of it."
I shook my head. Every time I
tried to conjecture I brought up
against a blank wall.
"Mr. Crowninshield will surely
make him tell will find a way," I de
clared. "That's what a lawyer Is for.
Anyhow', he didn't have anything to
do with the ruby." I clung to that
tenaciously. "He was t home. Laura
telephoned, and he answered." .
"I don't want to think of it any
more," Natalie drawled. "I don't un
derstand it and I'm not trying to. I'm
not going to sleep tonight if I can
help It. I shall sit here all night with
the light on, my remaining trinkets in
my lap, grasped firmly so! In the
morning I shall go to town and lock
them in a safety deposit; then I'm go
ing to Europe, unless I have to stay
here about the trial. WThen the de
tective comes tomorrow he can look
after everything else. He won't have
to bother about me."
"I'll sit up with you," I told her. I
went toward the door. "111 be back
nresently when my sister is aslp,
and we can, amuse ourselves with
double dummy. I don't mind sitting
"You haven't such a thing as a re
volver?" she asked.
"Jo has," I replied. "She carries
one in the car, but I wouldn't pull the
trigger for an empire. I'll bring it,
though, if you want it"
"Bring it," she said.
I didn't tell Jo the whole truth. I
said Natalie didn't lose anything when
she fainted, and she didn't. When Jo
was asleep I went back to Natalie and
took the revolver. We played double
dummy with the wicked little weapon
on the table, and talked about every
thing except thieves, until two o'clock.
Nothing happened. A little slice of
the dying moon hung in. the west, but
It cast only a pallid light outside. I
couldn't keep from yawning. Both Na
talie and I were growing stupid. Fin
ally she suggested that I get some
sleep, and she would read. She wasn't
afraid with the revolver, for she said
she could shoot and shoot straight, but
perhaps she, too, would go to bed.
The scare petered out as the morn
ing advanced; our night vigil began
to look a bit wild and absurd.
I yawned good-night and went. I
think I was asleep before I touched
the bed. I dreamed, and the dreams
were not pleasant. I saw Winthrop,

I awoke. Everything was quite still.
I listened; I heard nothing. After
deciding I wouldn't get up, I did. The
doors were securely locked, I knew,
but I tried them each in turn. Jo
was sleeping soundly. I went into the
sitting-room and looked out. There
was the faint light of early dawn, just
enough to distinguish the dim outline
of trees. After a while I became con
scious of the fact that some one was
moving below. I strained my eyes to
see, my heart beating wildly. Then I
knew it was Winthrop! He moved
across the lawn. I saw him stop,
raise his arm and rub the back of his.
head. I couldn't be mistaken in that
gesture. I think he turned back once,
then the dim outline of his figure re
treated, and was lost in the direction
of the beach.
While I stood there wondering, my
brain in a muddle of conjecture, star
ing after Winthrop, something else
moved on the lawn below! I looked,
straining my eyes through the pale
dawn. A man, yes; that much was
obvious. Vaguely the figure seemed
familiar, and suddenly it came to me
Thomas, the footman! But not the
rigid, liveried servant now; a quick
moving, alert, crouching, creeping
Thomas. He darted across the lawn
and vanished In the direction Win
throp had gone.
I was getting back into bed, too be
wildered for connected thought, when
I heard a sharp, quick noise like the
falling of a hammer or some heavy
object on the floor. The sound seem
ed to come from' overhead. There
was no one overhead, unless some one
was in the gallery! I had no busi
ness investigating, but I did. A sud
den thought pushed forward in my
now wide-awake mind that Jo had
acted strangely about the gallery.
, I unlocked my door carefully. Na
talie's light was out. No doubt she
had decided to go to sleep. I stood
there beside my door for perhaps two
minutes, perhaps ten it seemed to be
a century and finally my waiting was
rewarded. The sound came again just
overhead, but this time muffled, and I
was1 sure I heard footsteps. It never
once occurred to me that ' I was go
ing into danger when I went toward
the steps leading from the wing to
the floor above. I wanted to know
who was in the gallery at that time
of the night or morning.
I reached the top of the steps, feel
ing my way carefully. The corridors
were quite dark'for the shades were
drawn, keeping out what little light
there was, but I knew the steps to
the gallery were just to my right. Be
fore I turned to ascend that ' second
flight I felt there was some one near
me. I put out my hand, but drew it
back quickly. I had not touched any
thing, but I was scared blue. My
fright must have made me lose my
bearings for the moment.'
My' hand came, in contact with a
door I knew it was the card-room
door. I pushed it open and went in
while I tried to control my wildly beat
ing heart and my stampeding courage!
Once I thought of switching on the
light, but I--I was afraid of the light.
It occurred to me that I was in a ri
diculous position. The duke's suite

surd fright until I had assured my
self that whatever it was it was not
going to harm me. I stooped and
picked it tip. It was soft a cloth
bag. A thought come like a lightning
flash: A bag with jewels! I clutched
it to my breast and jerked at the door.
When I turned In the direction of the
wing I felt, I knew, some one again
was In the hall. I couldn't find the
talrs to the wing! Whoever was there
near me moved! .
In that instant the blaze of an elec
tric light was flashed straight into my

blindly, in the direction, as I thought,
of the wing. My feet touched space!
I plunged forward headlong and went
down, down, down into darkness.
The Bag of Loot.
When I regained consciousness,
John was putting me on the couch in
my sitting-room, and there was a
jumble of faces before me Jo, and
Laura, and Mrs. Hazard, all badly
frightened, clutching at unfastened
dressing-gowns. Natalie was there,
too, but I did not see her at first.
. "I'm afraid she's badly hurt," John
was saying. "Did Doctor Graham an
Hap was crushing my hand within
both of his, hurting me, but I didn't
want to say so. Everything was ter
ribly confusing. My right shoulder
was hurt; the doctor said afterward I
must have struck the wall as I plunged
down the steps into the wing, and that
saved me, perhaps, from breaking my
neck. It was later I discovered that
my right arm was broken, when I re
membered the bag I had picked up and
couldn't feel it.
"The jewels!" I cried.
"Jewels!" everybody repeated in
one tone a tone of surprise.
"I had them when I fell," I said. "A
bag of jewels."
Hap groaned. I'm sure he thought
I was out of my head, and after a
great deal of fuss he managed to get
a drink of brandy down my throat
what he didn't spill down my neck.
But John went out and came back
presently with the bag. It was a dark
green cloth bag like lawyers carry
their whatever they do carry In them.
And thrown into it, like so many po
tatoes, was about the most beautiful
collection of Jewels I have ever seen.
There was a silk stocking Lydia's
containing more jewels ; and Mrs.
Higginson's hot-water bottle.
"A thief would never look for jewels
in a hot-water bottle," I quoted hys
terically. (TO BE CONTINUED.)

RED, BLACK AND WHITE CUR
RANTS. - i
Currants are a favorite fruit with
most people. The red currant is the
most used for Jellies, , although many
like the combination of red and white,
making a light-colored, jelly. The
combination of red currant and red
raspberry is especially delicious.
The black currant is not bo com

ciently old-fashioned not to forget

To be In the best condition for

do not remove the stems. Wash and
drain, and mash in the bottom of a

mash until there Is , enough for the
receptacle. Cook until the currants
have a white appearance, strain
through a collander, then put the
juice in a Jelly bag to drip. Measure
the juice, boil five minutes, then add
an equal measure of heated granu

DINNER NOTES. -
A few suggestions for seasonable
dinner menus may be enjoyed at this
time. Fruit soups are quite pdpular
among the Scandinavian people, and
are becoming better known and ap
preciated among the American. A de
licious cold soup on a hot day is most
satisfying and refreshing.
Iced Fruit Soup. Put a quart of
berries or sour cherries and a quart
of cold water over the fire in a gran
ite saucepan; heat slowly to the boil
ing point, boil for three minutes, add
sufficient sugar to Bweeten palatably,
stir until dissolved, and press through
a sieve. Reheat, and when at the
boiling point add a tablespoonful of
arrow root which has been blended
with a little cold water. Stir until
well cooked, add a tablespoonful of
lemon juice and set away to cool.
Serve cold in small glasses.
