The great datecttvVa Indulgence in that luxury all unknowingly gave to tho other aide aa advantam to the race for the Mlaatonnr Jewaia that well might prove fatal to hia anocam. Long bafora Brlta reached tha hot*eir room tot ayaa who had passed him to the hall of the tumhM-dowB loft building waa at the door of Burton's worknhop, straining tho angle of his vision to fol- low tha photo^ufraver at work. Thorn gttttorlng eyea foreuaed their gam through the keyhole on a piece ot pa- per which Burien bad fastened with thumbtacks to a board, and which, In tho glare of aa arc lamp, confront ted a big camera with a powerful lenn. Al- though the eyea followed Burton w wall an they could about tha room, their owner WM not ao much Intonat- ed la the artlaan'e activity M ho waa la tha email whlto sheet of paper on which he could discern linen traced In a woman'! hand. Patiently waited the owner of tho eyes. He waa of » race that had cultivated patience through the centuries, goon or late, undoubt- edly, the man Inside would go from the bench beside that great white light to another part of the room. A few yarda would suffice for tho man With the eyea, and even whllo Brlta atlll was talking to B&wson in Police Headquarters, Burien briskly covered thoae dosen or ao f eeutp get a chem- ical In the row of bottles in the rack at the far and of the shop.

For tha aaoond note to Ctortm Orm- wald that tall lata tho bands of Hiidooa tha one Prtoce tereeptod at tha door of the Fifth Ave- nue mansion ta which tha great mil wm held—was written on a letterhead that revealed to Nandy and tha Bwami an address they very much de- sired to know. Had that address found Its way to Dctectlro-T Jeutoaent Brlta as aooav It would hart anted htm much delay, and would hawo tparad a large part of tho ejty*e detective force the necessity of a laborious search through Manhattan*! hotel regmtara. Burien wan one of the moat aston- ished young men tn tower Manhattan when, turning from bin row of bottles, he found the note entreated to him by Brits had vanished. At Brat bo as- sumed ba had f aatenod tt carelessly aad that It had fatten to tha floor. A quick hunt ahowed him he wm wrong. He extended hia eeerch to every part of tho room, and tt WM not until he had disturbed the dust of ages that he realised the ecrap of paper actually wm gone. Hie aenaatlona following that iwallsatlon ware not of the pleaa- anteat. Brlta was one ot his beat one- tomera, and he knew from the deteo- tive'a eernestnees tho note waa of ex- ceptional, Importance. It solaced him only in part to find on taking the plate from the camera and putting ft through a developing procem that the lens had done Its work more faithfully than he. He held In hia hand a perfect duplicate of tha latter. That would not satisfy Brlta, of course, hut It waa better than it would hare been If the note had diaappeared before the photo- graphing was complete, Burien hast- ened to subject the little plate of cop- per to the acid bath, and ae the minute points of the halftone came out with gratifying distinctness, the young man rejoiced that he at least wm able to produce tha facsimiles tho Headquar- made mo pretty solid with tha waoie family.
