The painful is mine. .Tulni Spiudler, detective, Scotland Yard, arid how it cauie about was just in tliis way For a time I had been on the track of a ming of coiners, which, in my professional pride, I had vowed to cap- ture. More than once I hud pouueed down upon them in their haunts, and an vanished like magic; and 1 being to produce proofs, the chief, whoui I desired most to convict, fairly laughed at my efforts. This naturally pare me considerable annoyance, arid with some heat I ejacu- lated, You have escaped me this time, Jim Bradley, but I'm not John Spind- ler if you do the next." When you catch me, hold he grinned. How dare you malign an innocent man 11 Innocent man Then the evil one is not so black as he is painted I re- torted. Well, it was nearly nino months be- fore I again ran down Jim and his ganjr then I detected them in a low, wretched street near the road. The house they used was kept by an old Irish woman. Having watched the house till I was sure of my game, 1 went to Scotland Yard, saw the chief, reported the news, got some men, and on one dark, gusty night inadu a swoop upon them. Leaving the police I had brought at a little distance, I knocked at the door. Getting no answer, I stepped back and looked at the hovee. It was dark as pitch, save a faint gliuimei in the first floor window. As I returned I felt certain I saw the blind of the lower room move Trust- ing, if I was being suspected, that the darkness had concealed my identity, I repeated my summons, when, after a long delay, the door was opened by the old landlady, bearing a flaming tallow candle. Did you knock afore she said, peering feebly at me Sure, I'm jnst as deuf as a post, yer honor, and don't tiear a bit. Who do you want 'i One of your respectable lodgers, Mrs. I answered, entering the pnssage, and putting my foot so as to prevent the door closing. Thanks, old lady, I won't trouble you further" Giving a preconcerted whistle, my men came rapidly forward "Oh, the pcrleese?

Reaching the landing, I found all dark, save a faint glimmer which issued from under the door in front uf us. I tried the handle It was locked. We have him this time." I whis- pered, exultingly, for I Imd caught the sound of Jim Uradley's voice I have examined the house well, and there is no means of egress, either by the roof's or the windows They arc trapped.

I'm sure Remember what I said, Hold me when you catc-h old boy The thing is to trap your bird I will take care of that, Mr I rejoined. Open, or we shall break in the door." Oh, pluze, good jintlemen, for, the lore of the saints, don't make a noise There's a poor sowl jist ptmin' this life up stalls, an' his dear wHder is a'tiiost dis- tracted Sorra a one of ye jintlotiien hev any pity.

With a regular howl of disappoint- ment she hobbled away, declaring she'd do anything for us, imploring pitv for a poor, lone woman, arid couipabsion for the partiti' sowl. We don't wait for her return Aware no one coulil pass on the stairc. anil be- lieving that Jim be trying to dc- fetroy tho molds, we put our phnulJers against the door, and drove thu lock frouf the box.

Humph he "--aid, drawing me a little aside I have only visited this place once or twice, but I own I have had my doubts of its respectability. We medical men see strange scenes. Still, I don't imagine the poor woman and her husband have had any conni- vance with the people below. He is a bricklayer. Though, of courso, in such matters you nre the best judge. Such persons are capable of all manner of tricks It is, of course, your duty to make certain. Only, in case you are wrong, be gentle w'ilh the wretched wife and mother. Come in." Wo The room was almost devoid of fuftfiture, and barely supplied with the commonest necessaries of ex- istence. At one fide was a miserable mattress laid on the floor, and stretched upon it was the dying man. Kneeling by him, her head bowed down to his, ?ier black hair streaming over the tattered patchwork covering, was the young wife weeping bitterly, as she pressed her baby to her bosom. I am not hard-hearted, aud the sight took me back, especially the counte- nance of the husband, upon which the hue of death had already settled. I was following the doctor, when, abruptly, he leaned forward, then, drawing back placed his hand on iiiy arm. I thought as Le whispered, all is over." The words wtre scarcely nudible, yet they reached the wife's ears. I shall never forget tho scream she crave. Starting upon her knees, she gazed wildly in the face of the dead, then shrieked and turned appealingly to the doctor. Oh, no no not detid. Don't tell me that. Not dead Oh, Tom, Tom to to And casting herself on the budy, hhe went off into violent hysterics Poor said the doctor, raising her.

In every trifling wish, as well in every serious plan bearing upon the polii-y of the E.ist, the Ciar found the Turk guided by the advice of his Eng- i iish rival, while the latter succeeded in creating in Europe, and particularly 1m England, a scDtiuient of jealoucy and 1 distrust Russia. Fretting under i his diplomatic failures, the Cs.ir deter- j mined that by the conquest of Turkey, if no other means were sufficient, shtuld his influence at Constantinople out- weigh that uf the man he hated.

There was the mattress, ripped up and there, where the coffin had stood, was a hole in the floor, where a plank had been removed. That had been the place of concealment. But where were the dies why, in the coffin, of which, no doubt, the dead man had been one of the bearers. Nonsense I ejaculated. The man must have been dead It isn't likely ho could have deceived the doc- kind-hearted fellow, but a keen one I'll go to him." Leaving my assistant in charge, I hastened to Jude street, with his card in my hand. The red danger signal indicated the ho USD, and, knocking. I asked to see the doctor. The servant, bhowing me into tho surgery, went to summon him.
