I was standing in our office behind my desk when our chief entered the room with it letter in bin hand and addressed me with an invitation to undertake the unravelling of a my Dery which had baffled the local Olieo at t. I con Hen Ted and departed for the scene of the crime which Hud been committed much limited however As to the time i was allowed for spending on the Case. Two Hundred and Al fit five thousand Mark had been stolen from the widow of a Man named Friedow. Her Villa stood outside the Gates of a Small town and the lost property consisted chiefly in coupons and such valuables together with a Little Coin. Her habit was to keep ail tapers of uni it Ortance As Well As Money in n Chest of drawers beside her bed. Her sleeping room wus situated on the first floor and had hut one window which looked out upon the Yard. Her confidential friends had often advised Frau Friedow to keep her Gold at least in some safer place hut she had always resisted such counsel and put no Faith in Banks or thu Kors. As to the Safe she had averred that if robbers did Ever molest her unless her trusty dog and her faithful Frederick who was her factotum and the Only male person upon her Little property could not protect her an Iron Box would Avail Little beyond perhaps delaying the thieves in laying hold of what they wanted. On the night of be 7th of May the poor lady it s suddenly awakened about twelve of clock. Her room was illuminated. Before her bed stood a Small thin Man with n lantern in his left Liand and a Hatchet in his right in a rough la pulsed voice he threatened to Knock out her brains if she so much As ventured to utter a the unfortunate Frau was already voiceless from alarm. This speech could scarcely make her More quiet hut she could use her eyes and did so for the next few seconds while her visitors remained with her. She saw that the speaker wore Black Hose a Blue Blouse Aud a mask and that two More men were Huey in the a background breaking open her Chest of drawers. In the farthest Back division covered Over by stockings yarn Aud flax Lay a round tin Case in which she kept her movable treasures. She was just thinking about risking Lier life by calling fur help when the Yelling of a dog was heard without. Tire Ledove had found what they unfed however and sprang with it to the window one aah of which was open. They threw themselves upon a ladder without Aud descended to the ground while the third Man still kept guard beside the bed. Frau Friedow cried for a help help 1&Quot with All her might. A a you May scream As Long As you like now Quot he muttered turning away Aud following the other from the room. Frederick appeared at this instant having been awakened by the roue. He found the ladder still in it Etsoe Jund going below was just in time to save the life of the House dog which had been almost choked by a Cord twisted round his neck fastening him to i Kennel. The Man servant mused up the neg Liora hut All Pursuit then or later by Friend privately or by l lie police Puhl Loly had been in vain. Not the least clue Imd hitherto been obtained a to the identity of the House breaker. This in How the matter stood when i arrived at t. When i had privately communicated with the Magia trate. My second visit was naturally it Aid to Frau Friedow. I sought everywhere for any special indication which might put me on the right track hut what i found was desperately like those who had gone before me 1 concluded that the robbery had at any rate been accomplished by be icons Well acquainted wit i the locality As Entrance to the premises Imd been made by a Small door in the Yard of the very existence of which Ninny of the cig Milioni wore unaware. The ladder made use of had Ceu dragged out of a Nook in which it had Long Lulu concealed. A Pune of Glaza had been smashed in tic window of the lied room to enable one of the assailant to slip Back the Holt. A few footprint had been traced hut there was nothing remarkable about their a and they had been lost at once upon the High Road or Street upon which i lie Little court Yard opened. One thing seemed alone certain amid the Maze of perplexity be hous Breakers must lie sought from among neighbors servant friends or now the neighbor theory upon investigation seemed utterly futile and one glance at old Frederick was enough to make one do Hills All thoughts connected with the second term in the list. There remained the Friend and relation in the habit of visiting at the Villa. The widow had not the faintest a spicier of foul play in any of these nevertheless i made her describe and closely particularized them All to me. 1 look up half dozen imaginary scents i ran hither and thither. I telegraphed in various direction. I worked in fact in the sweat of my brow hut alas the result was simply nothing nothing nothing. I never lie fore had been no utterly puzzled Aud hopelessly at fault. On the Fourtly of my residence it to went again to the Villa where the widow greeted me with Eye full of exile Callon. A a Frau Friedow a i Ltd Quot it seems to me hardly possible that you Are utterly without suspicion in every Quarter. There must surely be some one or other on whom your mind a fixed if it were hut for a second. Confess it i no and confide in Quot 1 assure you 1 have not even a shadowy thought such As you describe Quot she replied in a much disappointed tone. A and los nothing More struck you about those men you saw in your room than you have already mentioned ? one remembers things on due confide Rulious which have been often overlooked before. La old you notice no peculiarity about any of the scoundrels in the voice for instance the Way of standing the Hauda of him who held the Udo had he on a ring hid he look rough like the others a there was one Little thing i May not have told before a she refilled slowly a a it was scarce Worth telling. When the two fellow ran off Down the ladder with my Little care the window slipped Down a they disappeared. The third mau pushed it up again to go after them but in so doing 1 think he must love put ills hand through the broken Pune and have Hurt it with the Glaas. In Lila haste. 1 certainly heard him mutter to he Iii it As if be were in Quot was there no Trace of blood left 1�?� 1 a amp ked anxiously. Noue i began my investigation anew Aud this time with the doctor of the District. We got into a Lively dissertation upon Hurt inflicted by Glass ii degree i acquired the to me very interesting fact that ome three week since when the or Deco waa Riding Home to breakfast after an Early Call a strange Man had suddenly appeared in the Middle of i be Highway and had implored id help. He claimed to having fallen upon a Heap of broken Glass and held out de right hand to exhibit its condition. Tim doctor took out id pocket Cane of instruments and extracted five Al Lutes from the inflamed Palm. While lie did so the patient whimpered like a woman. A a How a the fellow dressed of a i cried . Quot a Blue Blouse and Black underclothes As far a i can Quot could you identify him again a a Quot perhaps. 1 1� face made nil impression on me rather because it did not seem to match the clothing and yet now i think of it i seem to Sec Only no Ordinary brow nose and Mouth. I fancy it in lie set of the head on the shoulders a Doh looked Artiz aos Aud such folks usually look otherwise. That i All i can say. Hut what make this matter interesting to you a Quot i ladle your complaining pallet to lie the principal in the Lulo robbery concerning which i have come Down Here a i replied in a Low Vole. A can you give me any idea As to Wlms by cute of the Man Alicr you were done with him Quot the doctor looked at me in Munze ment. Quot i think he went toward ,�?� he replied. 1 lost no time in going lie same direction. An old tree which forked at the top and curried a Bell in that division stood on a height near the Shore. Here those who wanted to he ferried Over the River must Stop and ring for the Boatman whose Bouse mood in n sheltered Nook at hand. I shirked preliminaries and made at once for the Here 1 found n Gigantic person who declared lion Elf the daughter of the ferryman and the customary rower when As now her fatties was absent. 1 sought to gain the Confidence of this Damsel. Quot a Friend of mine went Over Here i think not Long since a i said. Quot he was in great Lumiste being of ids Way to Holland in order to escape serving Here in the the kit plur antipathy to the enforced in Liturgy training loosed her Tongue at once. A a yes yes a she replied Quot a Young mau in great Libaste did surely go Over a Little time a a he wore a Blue Blouse Aud Blok Hoseyn a maybe hut it seems to me he had others with ids a a very probably. Two others 1 suppose Quot Quot this a How it was. One Man came to me in the Early dawning. I put him across. An hour or so later there came a second and asked anxiously Assiut the first. When i told him lie was licy Ond he seemed Content enough and Ful owed. The third your Friend with the Blouse asked if he were the first who had wanted me that . He asked me particularly about the two i had already rowed Over and then seemed right Gay and jumped into the lust Quot All one of three carried a tin Box a i Nabl slipping u Coin into my new acquaintances hand. 111 never noticed a answered the girl. A a but i saw that the third Man carried a round bundle or parcel wrapped in a red handkerchief under Hiarm. Quot did he give you a Good Reward for taking him Over a Quot nothing More than All the world ten Quot with his right hand a Quot Why not a Quot Wasny this right baud tied up Quot Quot not that 1 saw. I Only know he kept one hand in i pocket whether the right or left i could t say i could have embraced the tall ferry woman in spite of her forty Summers and her uncertainty us it a minor Points. It a Plain that the three ruffians for better Security Bod separated and that the inst Corner was the Leader in and the chief a Onefater by the crime which had been committed. During Bis confab with the doctor no doubt he Hod hidden the spoils in some hedge i wus a on i track now. Hut 1 Bud soon to cry a lost a it waa a Gale Lou disappointment to me. Beyond Kim the clue a nowhere to be followed. I Lal red in vain in this neighbourhood for . I made Friend with All Aorta of people letter carriers Porter Waller and walked Many a weary mile in he hot Sun but All to no purpose. I was baffled and wholly at fault As much a though i never 11 hint at ail to follow. Nine had gone by since i bad come to t. I turned into a Beer Garden in the neighbourhood of the town one evening and sat Down near a Well lighted Bowling Alley in which about ten gentleman were Huy at a my seat was rather in the Alinde. I paid Little attention to the players hut leaned my head upon my hand and reviewed the defeat 1 had Austn ined and the Small estimation in which i should be held for Suke of it by my colleagues and chief it Home feeling altogether extremely out of humor. Suddenly an ill thrown Ball rolled almost to my feet. A a a nil a a miss a shouted several voice together while one cried Quot Why Bottcher is your baud not even yet recovered ? you Are not complaining of it still Quot 1 Felt like a Huntsman in a Forest w to see the game at id Gull s end. 1 was on the Alert that second. I lost no time in finding out All Lerr bolts Here a antecedents. To was a merchant Otto of Frau Friedow s connections and an occasional visitor at her House. He was a continual great at this place of enter tui ment. I brought the doctor Here next evening and set him to work stealthily considering my game. My discomfiture was great when lie flatly refused to identify Herr Hettche Rand ills patient As one and the . They might lie one he confessed but then they might not. If the Medico turned Rusty like this it seemed to me utterly useless to tiring hither the ferry woman on a like errand. I must Trust to myself alone. We officials have two methods of doing business of tills sort. We use the Long or Short line according As either seems most Likely to suit. I determined to try one after the other. In order to put Bottcher quite Oil lie the scent 1 went now to the Host of this House of entertainment and introduced myself to him As a Hamburg agent for the forbidden lotteries. I begged him to keep this close hut i saw very plainly by his face that lie intended doing nothing of the sort. Next morning to my great Contentment i found myself outwardly under the supervision of the town police and generally regarded by the Public us a shabby individual. I meantime was As Busy As Ever hut it wus Little i discovered. Herr Bottcher was certainly not in Good repute amongst ills Fellows. Nevertheless i could hear of no Wirtl Culner difficulty in which he Hud fallen of late ult Tough i did learn that lie had. Three weeks since made a Hasty journey. One Little fact however seemed to to of great Worth. Herr Bottcher these times kept badly and was wont to Rise often by night and Pace up and Down the Garden. I Lay lurking for two entire nights under Hughes in this same plut hut during 11 tho a weary hours whoever did come to till place Herr Bottcher unfortunately did not and in the Garden i could find no Trace of any hidden treasure or likelihood of such. I fell into greater dwt mar than la forc. What could i do ? upon one Side my Aliso Lule certainty of in Vang tracked my Man on the other no earthly Means of bringing Home his guilt. If i Only had sufficient ground to demand a search through the rascals House hut i had not. One afternoon 1 was walking up and Down my room considering when the Post brought me a Brief but concise and decisive Dis it atch from my chief Quot return immediately unless ail matters Are in train. Olve up. You presence Here is this order was like a Thunderclap in my ears. My Coli Maudling officer was plainly displeased at my Long Hibou id i simply throw the cards Down and venture Allou one trick this same evening so As to tie ready to de met tomorrow at furthest i decided for the last alternative. Twelve gentlemen sat in the town club room. My Friend made one of them. To ids great Surprise 1 sat Down close to him and began to talk a Little. Presently our nearest neighbor stood up and departed to my great Joy. I Lien Over Oltcher now and whispered that i had a weighty matter to bilk Over with film. Quot what May it be a he inquired calmly. A a you believe i am Here As a lottery agent a he nodded. I am not however. I have been sent Here on detective business let a the prussian police Herr Modeller took tills revelation . On the instant lie knew not How to compose his features lie first Drew in Ilia face of if wishing to look astonished and then lie tried to smooth away All hut but supreme indifference. After a second or two. During which i had studied him a n Serpent does its prey to said in a constrained Lone a a How does that concern me prey Good sir a a you have heard of a widow Friedow from whom a Large sum of Money has been Stolon. 1 have Como Boro to Hunt up the thief. I have got on the right Irasek. You i know Are related to her. And concerned in the properly she possesses its u probable while 1 spoke thus i looked him straight in the eyes. They sparkled like those of an angry cat a inking ready to Spring. Quot and you will arrest me i suppose a lie gasped angrily. I should have loved to seize him by the Throat then and there shouting Quot in the name of the to this i wonder How i restrained myself hut i did. Quot How can you talk so a i exclaimed calmly. Quot i Only mean that you must help me bring he criminal to Justice being. An you Are interested in the Quot with All the pleasure in life a he replied heartily. Quot i will do what i can. But what is it you want or me ? Quot Marly to Morrow i will come up to you to consult Over the mutter mud we can then decide on our Bottcher Drew a Long breath. A this is most unfortunate a lie exclaimed. Quot i have an urgent summons and must Slart from t before Daybreak. Per Hups i May to even obliged to leave till evening.
