ALLEN i I*I ifc it, ITI ift ITI •!« »tt »ti >t* »Ti ITI t\t •> i* The limited express .from the west rolled into the station Just as the clocks were striking midnight. Calvin Cates- by. traveling salesman for Stonner & Co., swung himself down from the train and made for the subway. &.11 the«,way uptown Mr. Catesby was thinking of the warm welcome that would await him In his comforta- ble home in the Alameda apartments. His wife would have received his wire from Buffalo, and a hot and tasty little supper would be prepared for the long absent head of the family. His chil- dren would be permitted to sit up un- til his arrival. His suit rase was laden with gifts for each and every one. Even Capitola, the maidservant, had not been forgotten, and there was a new collar for the bull pup, Pedro. When he turned into the vestibule with its preen tubs of primly clipped box he whistled ruefully at the recol- lection that the elevators had prob- ably stopped running. His fears were verified, but nothing daunted, and he cheerfully mounted the stains that led to the eighth floor., where his apart- ment was situated. .Flight after flight was traversed with an occasional pause on a landing to regain breath until he left the seventh floor behind. He cleared the last three steps at a bound and hurried down the corridor to suit B. He paused an Instant before the door, disappointed that Ho one had been watching-for him. Then he thrust in his latchkey and swung quietly Into thje hall with the opening door. A whistle of astonishment escaped him at the total darkness into which be had entered. He struck a match and groped for and found the gas Jet It sputtered feebly, as if the flow of gas might be low. However, it gave sufficient light for Mr. Catesby to note that the hall was bare and denuded of furniture. He flashed on- his electric pocket lamp and discovered that the inner rooms were also bare. In flact, the entire premises were as deserted and desolate as on« the day he and Fanny had first looked them over. When and where his family hadi re- moved to was a matter to be Immedi- ately investigated. He placed his suit case in a corner and raced out of the place and down the interminable flights of stairs to the very bowels of the earth, where he dared to arouse the indignant janitor from his bed,. t'And what would I be- knowing about it?\ demanded the lord of the manor peevishly. \Three tenants went ont today and left no address, their rent being\ paid.

All the flats are taken.\ *<Funny,\ ejaculated Mr. Catesby, not feeling at all amused at the situa- &on! He turned on his heel and walk- ed out of the building with a sensation that his world was quite upside down. He had heard of men losing their wives or their children and calling upon the police for aid io their recov- ery, but the disappearance of a family of three persons, the furniture of a seven room flat, besides a capable maid of all work and an active bull pup was a different proposltibn. The janitor of the Alameda must know or his greedy wife who had sent Catesby on the fruitless chase to the Freenosia. Once more Catesby descended to the janitor's abode and pounded • on the doorr\ This time there was no response, and, after delivering a threatening ti- rade that greatly relieved his overbur- dened mind, the weary man in search of his family toiled up to his despoiled home.' At least he was within the walls > that had recently housed his loved ones. There was no use in searching for.them any further tonight. When- morning came he would begin anew. It could not be that they had been long gpue. for he had noted his own name on the bulletin board .in the low- er hall. The gas had been turned off in the apartment, and after he had burn- ed what little there remained In the pipes he was obliged to solace himself \with the'single beam from his pocket lamp, There was a broad .window seat in the little room he ^had called his \den and here, with a pile of newspapers to soften the hardness, he huddled him- self to wait for morning.- The window gave on an airshaft, and from some source came the delicious odor of a freshly broiled beefsteak. He sniffed hungrily, and his mouth watered. By rights he should have been eating broiled steak and mushrooms at this very moment, and his, family would be tejoicing over the gifts he had brought them. The thought of the gifts reminded him that there was a box of candy in there for his wife. Well, he could buy Fanny another bor in the morning. He was half starved, and his appetite must be satisfied. He pulled out the box' and munched* half heartedly at the ^chocolates and b&nbons. He wasn't fond of candy, and the sweet- ness soon • appeased his hunger—for candy. But the steak still smelled tan- taliztngly from some other apartment,' and he heard through the airshaft the* dfetant tinkle of dishes. Of course he could go out and get something to eat-flnd a hotel and re- main until morning should bring a so- lution of what he 'thought was the greatest mystery he had ever known. He saw in imagination the papers headlining the unaccountable disap- pearance of au entire family. There would be pictures of the twins and of his wife and of himself, and undoubt- ably a drawing of the flat and little ovals showing Capitola's broad fea- tures and the smug countenance of Pedro, the pup. He yawned sleepily and thought of the comfortable bed that would have been his if Fanny had not taken it into her head to move. Of course wherever they were . tbe comfortable bed was awaiting him. Tomorrow would divulge its whereabouts. Li the meaatime had Fanny received Ms message\? Perhaps she had not. In that case she would .not be assailed by such, anxiety as he was now suffering. In the morning he would try to trace the telegram and see to wl^at address it had been delivered. Cheered by this brand new idea, Mr. -Catesby carefully spread the newspa- per on tbe floor, rolled his overcoat Into a pillow and gingerly laid himself down on his hard couch. He was ehastened in spirit by his fruitless search for bis family, and he knew that if would be useless to, attempt to 'find them at this hour of the night. In- formation would not flow readily from lips yawning with fatigue. His experi- ence with the janitor had taught Mm that. He even thought tolerantly of that despotic individual/ and he felt a glow of thankfulness when he discov- ered that there ^f as steam In the radi- ator pipes. He slept v fitfully, and bis dreams were of wearisome journeys up and down endless stairs. In Ms dreams he fought and slew janitors by the score. He poured .money recklessly into greedy, palms that Itched^to point the way tp bis lost loved ones^'yet when bis money had been received he met -with mocking laughter, .a •*. It was early when be awoke. Spar- rbws were twittering in the< windo-w ledges in the outside ppoma. He beard the distant rattle and tout of the el* v4ted trains* the rumbleof mfli wag- ons on the street without and later, the swishing sou^a of tbe elevatjis running smodthly- Then he arose and stretched his cBramped- limbs. * In the bathroom he found a scrap cjf toilet soap and vfas thankful once more.

Once more Mr. Catesby returned to the Alameda and entered the ejeva- tor. \Eighth floor,\ he said wearily, Intending to deposit his suit case there- in and make a room to room search of the vast building. At the door of suit B he paused in stunned surprise. Standing there and briskly polishing the glass panel was Capitola, the capable, and she uttered a frightened squawli as he came to a standstill. \Lawks Mr. Catesby, where did you come from, sir, and. the missus all broke up over your not coming, as the telegram said you would be coming at 12 last \night?\ This was Capitola's customary mode of speech, and, al- though in the past it had bored her employer to desperation, now It fell on Ms astonished ears like sweetest mu- sic. • • ° \Where's Mrs. Catesby ?\ he demand- ed dazedly. That question was an- swered by a rush of skirts and the cries of delighted children, and inthe seclusion of his own home—quite com- pletely furnished, mind you—Mr. Cates- by embraced his family and gave and received explanations. \I tell you I did come into this apart- ment last night and left it thir morn- ing. It was utterly devoid of furni- ture. Look; there is the crease in my overcoat where 1 used it for a pillow!\ declared Mr. Catesby when his wife expressed doubt of his story. \But Joseph, how could it be, dear?\ she wailed. \We've been here right along, and we sat up until 1 o'clock waiting for you. \We couldn't think what had happened to you. Capitola broiled the most delicious steak. We thought we heard you coming,\and\— \1 smelled steak,\ asserted Mr. Catesby obstinately. Mrs. Catesby sat in thoughtful si- lence. The children played quietly with the toys their father had brought. Mr. Catesby watched his wife with a • strained look on his haggard face. \Joseph!\\ cried his wife suddenly. \Did you walk upstairs last night?\ \Of course 1 did. It was after 12, and the elevators had stopped.\ ^ \And you counted each floor until you came to the eighth?\ she asked. \Yes—that is, I counted the first time I went up. but as I noticed there was a piece broken out qf the\top step of that flight why, 1 just stoppled there the next time T went up. So\~ Mrs. Catesby jumped up from her ohair and threw her arms around her /^isband's neck. She was laughing l merrily, and without knowing the rea- son why Catesby found himself join- ing in her mirth. \Don't you see what you did, Jo- seph?\ she gasped between her gur- gles. \The first time you walked up you stopped at the wrong floor, where a suit B was vacant. The second time you didn't count the floors, for you remembered the broken stair. But when you came up in the elevator tMs morning he put you off at the eighth floor, and, of course we were here!\ \I'll settle s with that janitor!\ threat- ened Mr. Catesby when he could re- cover himself. \And you smelled the fragrance of your own beefsteak, Joseph,\ teased his wife. \Don't rub it in, Fanny,\ he said ruefully. \Remind me to have the lock changed on this door.\ Examining His Bait. . Daniel and Harry, two old fishermen, were \still\ fishing for trout in deep water, sitting with their backs togeth- er, when Daniel accidentally fell out of the boat and went down. Harry looked back and missed Ms companion, who at that moment appeared on the surface, pipe still in mouth, shaking his whisk-- ers profusely. Harry—Gosh, Dan! I just missed ye. Where ye been?
