had even dragged Langston tow the His experience in compli cated criminal in a nrofessional capacityV asBistad me nota little in solving some of the riddles of this peculiar kidnap ing or abducting or whatever else legal lore might name As for the more I thought over it the more morbidI I had come to believe that upon me lay the responsibility for the second disap pearance and This thought being burned into my it was but another step to decide that it was my duty to search until Annie Ealston was no matter what the I was haunted day and night by visions of that beautiful face lying so helplessly on the Often I would grow almost sick aud dizzy when I thought of her and her probable much to my plunged heartily into the He was better posted on police ways than I was and often when I a

without Sykes seeing What then TV e know thej left the must be our conclusion in regard to the honesty of Sykes And now Sykes ia a synonym for the entire do not include in this the superinten dent or his officers of rank but this I say that Annie Ealston lias been taken out of San and there is an other Sykes in the case Langston stood pensively studying the His hands were thrust deep in his I had
