On thin occasion ehe wan not visible, and Ar thur merely looked over th.-re because he had to look somewhere, and he was tired of the walls of hln own cage. He saw a desk with open lid and lit tered with document* The large man, ■with gray side whiskers, who usually sat al that desk, wan not to be seen. Indeed the room seemed empty.

No other portion of the individual came Into view The Incident was without slgnlH cance. and Arthur would not have no ticed It if hln mind had not been an ab solute blank al the time. Jt may have been a quarter of on hour later that Arthur's eyes again wandered across the way. The side .whiskered gentleman was standing be fore the desk, and two others were Just behind him, looking over hln should rs. This trio appeared to have u good deal on their minds ' Mr. Sideboards— is Arthur had chris tened the big man—was engaged In a , furious search for something, and th* ot hers were desperately anxious ell her that he should And It or Unit he shouldn't. It was hard to toil which at first. The thing sought was not there, and li\ and by the three men stoo l before the window and looked at one another with despair written on their counte nances. Then the two others turned upon Mr. Sideboards with some sort of i exhortation which resulted In his go ing through hie pockets with painful thorough!..-..5. The result was failure and consternation. Evidently these men had suffered a serious loss.

Thl* little irregularity lent strength to his profile, and might have served as a warning to any one who was tempted to trifle with Artie. A really prudent person might also have observed that the upper part of hie coat sleeves was cut unusually wide, so that he could bend hl» arms without burst ing anything. Mulching the ahell-llke skin, however, was ti somewhat obtrusive sympathy. Whenever Artie saw n person in trouble the womanish part of his nature yearn ed Hi si to find out w hat was the mat ter. and second to render all the as sistance In hla power, whereas It would have been more manly to mind his own business and let the suffering Btranger go right on suffering. Perceiving those people on the other side of the way to be in trouble. Artie conceived it to be his duty to go over there and g. t Into It with them. He had a gossipy desire to tell w hat he knew about the hand and the gray sleev e. So Attic ran right across the street, Just as If he had no troubles of his own.
