rrOur Short Story II
rr Our Short Story. II 11 The Ruby Brooch I BY HAROLD AVERY. (Continued.) There was a quick look of triumph in his eyes as she finished speaking. He took it that he need no longer remain in doubt as to what her answer would be. Whatever good impression he had just made on her mind was deepened later in the drawing-room, wihere he consented to make up a four at whist, with Mrs. Kacey as his partner and Mary and John Kacey for opponents. It was evident that Mr. Holmby was a skilful player; more than once his partner tramped his trick, but he took it with unruffled good temper, and forebore even from drawing attention to the mistake. At length the game came to an end. The two men strolled over to the fire, and stood talking politics. Save for the four guests who had just risen from the card table no other person was in the drawing- room. Mary Vaughan glanced at her watch. They'll be coming back from the theatre eoon, s he remarked. You haven't heard anything about your brooch, I supposed' she continued, moving to assist Mrs. Kacey, who was gathering up some fancy work upon which she had been engaged earlier in the even- ing. To the questioner's surprise the old lady seemed a little confused and dis- turbed by the inquiry. No." she answered, in a low voice. "I'm afraid it's really very much my own fault for being so careless. I ought to have put it away somewhere, instead of which I left it sticking in the pincushion on the dressing-table. There now, I've forgotten all about that book." U What hook ?,. A novel Miss Findlfr lent me. She's leaving in the morning, and wanted to put it in her trunk to-night. I meant to bring it down to give her when she returned from the theatre." Where is it? Can't I fetch it for you My dear, I don't want to trouble YOll- still—I do find the stairs very trying. If you're sure you don't mind, you'll find it lying on the dressing-table in my room; and, by the way, on the book is a half. crown I promised Miss Chetwood for the Children's Mission in which she's inter- ested." Mary Vaughan went quickly out of the room, passing unconcernedly a big clock in the hall ticking out what were, per- haps, destined to prove the most fateful moments of her life, on up the stairs to a room at. the end of the first landing, with the number of which she was already ac- quainted. The gas was lowered, but she had no difficulty in finding the book, which lay on the extreme left edge of the dressing-table. As she picked it up some- thing fell. She stooped to recover it, searched for a few moments in vain, then moved away and turned up the gas. She had forgotten the half-crown, and could not at first imagine where it had fallen. It had slipped off the cover of the book, and then mysteriously vanished. There had been no sound of its impact with the floor, or the tinkle of a rolling coin. She gazed about her with a puzzled ex. pression, then saw the probable explana- tion of the mystery. Close to the dressing- table was a small waste-paper basket, half filled with torn-up letters. It was into this that the half-crown had, no doubt, fallen. Mary Vaughan went down on her knees, and began turning out the contents of the basket. The next moment her eye caught the glint of something hrigiht- something which was not a piece of silver, she rose to her feet, holding in her hand With a smothered ejaculation of surprise she rose to her feet, holding in her hand the big ruby brooch. It was of a pattern fashionable long ago, a massive gold true lovers' knot, with a little heart attached to it, the whole studded with big rubies. For a few seconds Mary Vaughan stood hesitating. The discovery of the brooch in the paper basket was not difficult to explain. It had come there in the same way as had the half-crown—probably been swept off the edge of the dressing-table by a careless movement of the hand. It seemed strange, however, when its dis- appearance had been attributed to so serums a thing as robbery, that no one had had sufficient senee to hunt through the paper basket. The finder's first impnlse was to restore it at once to its rightful owner, -then the opportunity for a little bit of ftrn seemed too good to be lost. She slipped the brooch into the dressing-table drawer, and, returning- to the drawing- room, made some casual remark about the book Cecil •H-olmby and .Tohn Kacey were still continuing their conversation in front of the fire. Mary Vaughan waited a little. If she spoke at once, immediately after her re- turn from her bedroom, the joke would probably lose its effect. The opening she required, however, came sooner than she expected By tie way," enquired Holmby. sud- denly, I suppose you haven't beard if the police have been able to trace that German waiter YÐf;?" John Kacey, tn whom the question was addressed, mumbled some scarcely audible reply, while hi= wife pretended not to have heard, but looked ill at ease. It occurred to Mary that, out of kindnf,qff) -NfaTrbAm, I they had decided to make as little noise over the theft as possible. If it had happened in France," I grumbled IIolmby, the fellow would have been nabbed at once. It seems impossible to get the police in this country to move until it's too fojte. What do you think Miss Vaughan ?" "I don't know enoiurh about the police to express an opinion," was the answer. "But as for the brooch —the speaker appeared to hesitate for a moment. "T)'you know, T-we-11, if the brooch were an v where in this house, I believe I could find it." What d'vou moan ?" enquired Holmby, looking at her in a half, amused, half cariou^tn .inner. U Ob. I daresay you'll lauffh, but I claim to be what is usually, I believe, called r physic.' If that brooch were anywhere in this hou-sp, and you were all to will me to find it, I believe I could." "My d" r Miss Vaughan—of course, you don't really mean that I" reclaimed Mr? Kacev, a little nervously it seemed. Shall I try? Ifs just possible, that the thief might have hidden it somewhere in the house." Oh, by all means give otiS an exhibition of your skill," laughed Holmby. Are we to blindfold you with a handkerchief—or what ?" You think I am i-oking," answered Mary Vaughan solemnly. AH right-you shall see. What I want you people to do is each to lay a hand on my shoulder, and 1 will me to find the brooch." "Are we to follow y

THE RATING DEBATE
THE RATING DEBATE.. Swansea Association on I Direct System. 11 The Swansea Ratepayers' Federation held their adjourned meeting on Thurs- day, when the question of direct .rating was again discussed. The Chairman, Mr. John Williams, read a letter from Mr. Ed. Harris, who expressed the opinion that any landlord who paid rates on property, where the rent was collected weekly, was entitled to a deduction of 171 per cent, if he pays the rates within the prescribed time. He was of opinion that an agreement made between a certain number or combination of owners, and the Corporar- tion, save and except to the extent to which such arrangement was incorporated jt) the Act of Parliament, is not binding upon the owners at large, and was even doubtful whether it is binding upon the owners who were parties to such bargain. The Chairman said Mr. Ashmole was a roovrt; capable, shrewd man, and was look- ing after the interest of the ratepayers very well. He (the Chairman1) was not there to say the Corporation had taken up an illegal position, but to educate property owners on their legal position. He thought it would he a practical step if he made these people responsible to the Corporation for their own rates. He advocated this also on the larger ground of municipal government. What possible interest could a tenant have in the borough if be did not pay rates? Mr. Luff said the assessment of tenants would create a difficulty in collecting rates. It would cost more to collect, and other ratepayers would have to make this good. Mr. Rosser gave as his experience that the payment by tenants had worked very satisfactorily. A member asked Mr. Rosser if he re- duced the rents when the rates came down, and Mr. Rosser hotly re.plied: "If r the rates come down, the rents go down with any respectable man!" There was no resolution, the Chairman pointing out that their object was to educate opinion.
