Grayson County Needs No
Over at Sherman we are told they are
again planning to put on a walkathon, al-
though that city some months back put
down the clamp in a pronounced fashion
on one that had run to the dregs and pulled
every known trick such promoters have to
gull the gullible.
True the community put up with it
for several weeks and the protests got so
loud tliat something was finally done.
Denison papers protested the thing se
verely, but not so any other papers in the
county. Officers finally put the stop to it.
We do not know, but we have the be-
lief that the district attorney will not let
the thing get started again in Sherman or
any other town in the county.
Not only is it an out-and-out graft, but
it is vulgar. It is a direct drain on legiti-
mate business and takes thousands of dol-
lars per week out of the healthful and le-
gitimate channels of trade.
We are set against marble boards, coin
devices, book making and the like in this
county and it would seem the natural thing
would be to be against this walkathon
Recently in Dallas where they tried to
promote it, the walkathon was stopped and
the tricks of the trade exposed. All those
feintings at expiring on the floor were
staged and was pure de acting, the pro-
moter stated when he was hard pressed
to make his defense of a charge that it
was inhumane. Showmanship, then be-
came the defense of the promoters, but
even that could not get them by in Dallas
It should also not be permitted again
in this county.

Fortunately few of us are
compelled to go to court, often, if
at all, yet it it is edifying to learn
that the Texas Civil Judicial
council at its annual meeting ot
Austin has decided to study means
of reducing the high cost of liti-
state participation in paying jury
fees, balil'f's and constable's fees
and court costs in cases involving
only th e plaintiff an I the defend-
ant and in which the state, per
se, has not interest other thai,
seeing justice done.

only from the standpoint of re-
moving that much burden from

I had a couple days of rest, and
appreciated it. Phil was in New
Vork over night. When he came
pack he had a copy of the birth rec-
ord. A girl, Nola, was born to Mrs.
No la Lutzmann on November 10,
1911, at the address of Mrs. Felder.
I was rather ashamed of myself
for having neglected to look this up
before. I took the information over
to Judge V/entworth.
"Wo all often overlook the sim-
rler things that frequently prove to
e important," was his comment.
' Sergeant Harper got his reports
that Mr. and Mrs. Fellows seemed
to be obeying orders. Aside from
marketing and going out for dinner
nt some local restaurant, they sel-
Ilorn left the place. The For Sale
sign had been removed. (
Howard Griswold was still out-
wardly calm, but Mary and I both
could see that he was under great
mental stress. The time was nearing
when he would have to go out to
Illinois for his new position. He
wasn't sure that he would be al-
lowed to do this. I took it up with
Harper. I felt that Foxcroft would
"Let's wait until we see what wo
learn from this Professor Lardeau,"
I tried to cheer Griswold by tell-
ing him I was fairly sure he would
not be held here.
Wednesday morning Foxcroft
had a wire from his cousin, Mr.
Colton. He was on his way to Great-
port with Professor Lardeau. They
Would be out shortly after noon. I
don't know how Foxcroft and Har-
per felt about it. I was more excited
than I had been at any time since
I was asked to help on the case.
Right after Foxcroft telephoned
this information, Mary telephoned
for me to come up. I went up
through the stile along the path
between my father-in-law's house
and her home. She was sitting on
the veranda and Davison was stand-
ing near by.
"You didn't take the silver rood,
did you?" she asked.
"No. Is it gone?"
"Yes. Davison noticed that it was
missing, not ten minutes ago."
We went into the library. I exam-
ined the hook where it had hung for
so many years. The filament of wire
was on the liook. I had carefully
wound it around the rood when I
hung it back, just as Harper had
originally fixed it, in order to learn
if anyone handled it.
"Had any visitors, Mary?" I
asked. ^ •
"You didn't show anyone in here,
while Miss Montieth was away, did
"No sir. The rood was there yes
terday afternoon. I am quite sure
about that. I never go in the room
but what I glance at it."
"I don't want it there uny longer
than necessary," Mary cried. "It
makes me shudder."
"liawautu U>ak it, I.
"between yesterday afternoon and
"How about the servants?"
"They know nothing about it, at
least they say so, sir. I see no rea-
son to doubt them."
"And there has been no one here,
other than Miss Montieth, Mrs. Sta-
pleton and the servants?" *
"Certainly not since yesterday af-
ternoon," Mary assured me.
"Mason was up last night, sir,"
"Up where? In here?"
"Oh no, sir, he came up around
ten o'clock last night, he didn't even
come in. I went out and sat with him
half hour in the service yard.
Then I walked down as far as the
stile with him. He came around the
back way, naturally, sir."
"What do you think? I suppose
you visit back and forth?"
"I will see what I can learn.
Meanwhile, you question the ser-
vants again, will you, Mary?"
Mary promised. I had to hurry
i>ack and get to Greatport. I was
beginning to get greatly disturbed
about the taking of that silver rood.
For some reason, that I couldn't
fathom, it struck me as having
It was two o'clock when Mr. Col
ton arrived at Foxcroft's office with
Professor Henri Lardeau. The pro-
fessor was smiling and calm, shook
hands with us as Colton introduced
him, and sat down quite at ease.
"I can vouch for all that Profes-
sor Lardeau will tell you, gentle-
men," Colton said, "but he wants to
tell it his way."
"Well, first of all, Professor,"
Sergeant Harper said, "give us your
reason for stealing that painting."
"I did not steal it," Lardeau re-
"What I" Sergeant Harper fairly
bellowed, his eyes wide with aston-
ishment. "You didn't steal the paint-
ing? You were there. The paint-

I shook my head at Harper.
"If you will let me tell it. It is a
strange story. Mr. Colton has veri-
fied all of it. I have papers. Let us
go about it quietly and then, it you
wish, you may do what they call a
third degree, is it not?"
Harper nodded. "Go to it," he
"I took the painting. I did not
steal it. One cannot steal one's own
"So it was your painting, eh?"
Harper asked. One could see that
he didn't believe it.
"It was mine, in a way. It be-
longed to my father, now dead. I
inherited all that he left. Yes, It
was my painting And yet, gentle-
men, it really belonged to the Swiss
National Museum in Zurich."

involved. Professor." 1 said, to fill

that he had every reason to believe

"Ha! No copy, gentlemen, I as-
sure you. Ask Mr. Colton, long my
"I told you that Professor Lar-
deau wouldn't look twice at any
copy," Colton reminded us.
"That painting, gentlemen," the
professor assured us, "is a Van
Dyck, a genuine, not a copy. It is
the head of Prince Charles of Eng-
land when he was a little lad, th«
prince who later became King
Charles the second. It was dona,
about 1635 when Van Dyck waa
aged thirty-six. He did a great
many portraits of royalty, espe-
cially of royal children. It is ot
great value, very great value."
"Did you bring it back?" Ser-
geant Harper asked.
"Hal Never. Why should I? It Is
now hanging in the Swiss National
Museum where it should havs been
hanging twenty-five years ago."
"Let's clear this up—we aren't
interested in the painting; we want
to know who killed Gerard Mon-
tieth," Harper declared.
The professor became grave, in-
"No one wants to know more than
I. When I read of it the shock nearly
killed me. I was never so mortally
frightened. I took ship to South
America and then home, under an-
other name. I did not kill Mr. Mon-
tieth. I did go into his library. I
called again to make him another
offer, then to tell him that it was not
rightly his painting and that the
Swiss Government would sue him
for it if he refused. He was sleep-
ing. There, through the open door to
the library, hung the painting that
had belonged to my father. Why, 1
ask myself, waste time to haggle, t«

Montieth sue if he wished, but thl

The professor turned to Harpei
and said, with no show of alarm oi
fear, "That would be the natural
thing to think, but it is not so."
"Will you let him tell it?" Coltoi
Harper sat back, sulkily.
