B. IJEWIS There were 20 of us making up the< party at an English country house for the shooting season, and it so happened that while all were of course Well known to host and hostess seven or eight were strangers' to each other until Introduced at the house. I do not think there were over three or four who even knew little Mrs. Hope by name or could tell anything of her past Nor did a great deal leak out about her father after she had been generally introduced and had come to be a favorite with' both men and women, She was petite and blond. She had a baby face and big blue eyes, and your first impression of her was that she was a child, and a very innocent child at that. In the billiard room it was whispered that she was a distant relative of Colonel Saunders, our host, and that she had married a scamp and been so ill used that a divorce had been sought for. It was generally agreed that it must have all been the husband's fault and that the man who would ill treat such a light hearted, baby faced wife deserved something beyond contempt. She was by long odds the best looking woman among the eight or ten, but as she was not given to flirtation and as she looked pretty without artificial means she was forgiven for her handsome face and became a general favorite. The man who leaves business for a week or two for an outing seldom takes along jewelry or money of any account, but nine women out of ten must carry their diamonds wherever they go. There was a brave display of gems at Rose Hill with all except little: Mrs. Hope. She had two or three fin*: ger rings and a bracelet or two *hd. made a poor showing compared; to the? e was daily, but she did not display the slightest feeling of envy, and no hints were thrown out to hurt her feelings. A (country house full of wealthy guests Is a: bonanza for a nervy thief, and the colonel warned the ladles from the outset to be careful of their jewelry. All of them agreed to act upon the advice and then, womanlike, carelessly left every ornament lying about. On the fourth day of the party a lady named White missed three valuable rings which had been left lying on a table in her room. They had been taken, in broad daylight while the ladles were on the lawn and while the maid was temporarily absent from the room. It was impossible that any outsider could have got into the house, and it seemed Impossible to trace the theft to any particular servant. Counting maids, valets and the house retinue, there were about 20 people In the house aside from the guests. Mrs. White's loss was kept a secret for several days from all but host and hostess, but the colonel's quiet detective work brought no reward. The second loss was more serious. A Mrs. Willmere left her jewelry lying about after dinner and at bedtime discovered that she had been robbed of every single article. The value was at least £3,000, and as she and her husband were both excitable people the loss could not be kept quiet. Between the finish of dinner and bedtime we were scattered about the house and lawn, with the servants moving to and fro, and no stranger could have entered the house without being seen. The bedroom window was up, but no ladder had been used. It seemed to be plain enough that some servant had secured the jewelry, and one by one the entire lot were summoned before: the colonel's'; court icff inquiry and. interro- • There waSsn't one without a &odd character, nor could suspicion justly attach to any one. It was long after midnight before we got through, and next morning, the sergeant from the police station was called over. He couldn't suspect one of the guests, and he could find no grounds for suspecting one of the servants, and he got Gut of it by looking wise and saying that Mrs. Willmere had probably miBlald her or? naments. Unfortunately far her she was rather absentminded, a$d we pres She's no lady. But we think a goo deal of the miscellany of our store.

The losses did not break up the party, as might have been the cage. The colonel and Mrs. Wlllmera came to some mutual understanding. I think tke detective advised them to call it* a '"mislay" and thereby put the thief off his guard. Colonel Saunders insisted thfct&veryijettef ot value be locked hi ,tl>9> family safe, and when thta had [beeni ddfie e^erj' guest l>e6ame a ^er-fcek'MoliiiefcJ Ther«<wei«!ao?guM^ ;«toHrr ;gay» it to th* colonel privately* wa» s. Of all the theories this was the ost absurd, but of course the man felt bound to make a move of some lort. The jewelry had been locked up lor four days, and things had quieted own, when the colonel started to pro-uce It in honor of a government official who was to arrive that evening. I y he started to, because he no soonef .ttempted to unlock the safe than he iscovered that the bolts had been ot. As he pulled the door open he :tered a groan, and the sight of his aggard face was evidence enough at something was wrong. The safe lad been opened by means of a key, ut had not been locked again. Every rtlcle of jewelry was gone, and the lvalue of the lot was not a cent under .0,000. In seeking to render his guests safe the colonel had helped to despoil em. It was impossible to say at ivhat date the robbery had happened, and the only thing to do was to telegraph up to London for a detective. While waiting his arrival no servant allowed off the grounds, and of fOurse no guest could well leave while . nder fire. It was a painful position vSfr every one, and the detective rather 1|dded to it when he got to work. As |bon as he was in possession of all the |acts he said to the colonel: "These robberies were committed by he of your guests. They must all as-emble in the drawing room and sub-it to have their rooms searched." Rather than subject them to such an idignity the colonel offered tepay the oss out of his own pocket, out this 1 o one would hear to. All were willing 1 or the search to go on, and host, host' 1 ss and detective made it. Nothing i fas found. The detective clung to his i heory, however, and took another look the rooms and was given the names their occupants. There were three ms which communicated, and those ree were occupied by the colonel, his rife and little Mrs. Hope. The door between the rooms of the colonel and Hope was bolted on her side and ad been for years. This door caught the eye of the detective, and after an examination of "the bolt he said: ' "This bolt lias been worked wKhin t|iree or four days, as any k>ck*mith Vfill tell you, and this door has also been opened." j "Do you know what you are saying?" sternly demanded the colonel. i"I do, sir. You carry the key of the safe in your pocket. To get that key some one has entered your room by this door at night." |"But Mrs. Hope's effects have been searched along with the rest." l"Her effects—yes. She has the jewelry on her person. Let your wife search lijsr." e colonel was furious and his wife gnant. They would answer for liters. Hope as for themselves. can do no more," answered the de- . "One of your guests is the can break, her down in ten inutes." After long hesitation little Mrs. Hope wds called up. She came smilingly, and no pair of eyes ever revealed gr&tter Innocence. A layman would have sooner suspected a toddling babe. "Now, then," began the detective, "you are the robber. You took Mrs. White's jewelry, and you robbed the colonel's safe. You got the key from his trousers by opening this door. You have the jewelry on your person." For the space of 30 seconds the baby faced woman regarded him with wonder, indignation, fear and anguish. Then she gasped for breath and sank down in her tracks. "Search her," said the detective as he left the room. Ten minutes later he was called In. The little woman lay weeping on the sofa, and the missing jewelry was spread out on the table. "God help us!" said the colonel as he looked from the officer to the recovered treasure and back. "We must help ourselves," replied the man as he looked at the woman with pity in his eyes. "Mrs. Saunders, your maid must go. You must fix the price with her. She must get away as soon as possible, and the plunder must be found in her room later on. She will get safe away." Three hours later the Jewelry was "found" in the maid's room, and everybody else was cleared of suspicion and made happy. The maid had been gone two hours, and the detective doubted whether she could be found In big London. though of course he would use ev-i ery effort Little Mrs. Hope was ill for a day or two under the nervous excitement and so had a good excuse for leaving Rose Hill. So far as I* know not one of the guests suspected her. Indeed as the maid had left a written confession before she bolted how could any one else be suspected ? This being the case, you may wonder how I got hold of the Inside facts in the case. Well, thafs a matter of no concern as long as I have given you the full particulars. Perhaps the colonel t»yst£d me further than he did the others. As for little Mrs. Hope, It was want of money probably that Induced her to turn robber, but I have always tried to make myself believe that she couldn't . have realized what she was doing. , •psr : ;— il%kr the Bishop Did Not Scold. "A little boy in the neighborhood of Bishop Brooks' home In Boston was one day mischievously ringing doorbells and running away before the doors' were opened," says a writer in The Ladies' Home Journal. "In pursuit of this amusement he ran up the steps of the bishop's residence, and thf -bishop, happening to be in the hall ready te:g9 out, opened the door quickly, before the boy had turned to descend the steps.

The man who asks questions and insists on their being answered is a familiar presence at all party meetings. He is known as the heckler. The speaker is not allowed to disregard him. If a statement is disputed, it is the orator's place to make It good. Any member of the audience may rise to his feet and shout out a contradiction whenever he feels like it, and by the custom of English public life the speaker is expected to make some reply on the spot. Mr. Chamberlain was always a dangerous man to cross in debate, but the personal feeling against him was so bitter for years after his withdrawal from the ranks of the separatists that many an unhappy man was driven to tilt against his shield. It was delicious to watch Mr. Chamberlain's handling of the situation. He would pause when the interruption grew serious and give the heckler a chance to make himself well heard. "Now If you will allow me I will ask that gentleman to get upon a chair that we may all have the pleasure of seeing him." A dozen anxious hands would hoist the objector into unwelcome prominence. "Now, sir," came the clear, passionless voice, "will you kindly speak up? I should be sorry If any one missed what you have to say," The heckler, now quite unnerved, would stammer out something^md Mr. Chamberlain, listening with"! malicious smile, would quietly readjust his eyeglass and, turning to the audience, fling out a reply—cool, cutting and decisive,—Sydney Brooks in Harper's Magazine.

"Only once did Mark Twain appear in public as a political speaker," says Will M. Clemens in Ainslee's. "As a conscientious Republican in his political preferences Mr. Clemens took an active interest in the presidential campaign of 1880. While visiting in Elml-ra, N. Y., In the fall of that year he made a short speech one Saturday night, Introducing to a Republican meeting General Hawley of Connecticut. In the course of Ifis.remarks Mr. Clemens said: " 'General Hawley Is a member of my church at Hartford and the author of "Beautiful Snow." Maybe he will deny that. But I am only here to give him a character from his last place. As a pure citizen I respect him, as a personal friend of years I have the warmest regard for him, as a neighbor whose vegetable garden adjoins mine, why—why, I watch him. As the author of "Beautiful Snow" he has added a new pang to winter. He is a square, true man in honest politics, and I must say he occupies a mighty lonesome position. So broad, so bountiful Is his character that he never turned a tramp empty j^auded from his door, but a^ Ista^ll^cs is like a bottle of perfumery in a glue factory—It may moderate the stench, but it doesn't destroy it. I haven't said any more of him than I would say of myself. Ladles and gentlemen, this Is General Hawley.'" When a Kiss Was Valuable. The practice of kissing the hands was instituted by the early .Roman rulers as a mark of subjection as much as one of respect, and under the first Caesars the custom was kept up, but only for a time. These worthies conceived the Idea that the proper homage due to their exalted station called for less familiar modes of obeisance, so the privilege of kissing the emperor's hand was reserved as a special mark of condescension or distinction for officers of high rank. Roman fathers considered the practice of kissing of so delicate a nature that they never kissed their wives in the presence of their daughters. Then, too, only the nearest relatives were allowed to kiss their kindred of the gentler sex on the mouth, for In those days; as now, kissing was not a mere arbitrary sign, but it was the spontaneous language of thg, affections, especially that of love. Under the Romans if a lover kissed his betrothed before marriage she inherited half of his wordly goods in the event of his death before the marriage ceremony, and if she died her heritage descended to her nearest relatives.— Frank H.
