Whether of helping us in' I cannot say; all I that she didn't. "What kin asked her father, in "her mother was the a darned greaser, end it kid's fault if she's got in her." We came up with the judge at the dock gates, where he stopped to address a policeman stationed there. "Kid you tell me. my friend," h said, "where the best bank in town is located ?" I think the policeman's first im- pression as hc regarded us was that we had felonious purpose in asking this question. [or he did not reply immediately, and with reluctance directed us to the ltigh street, and told us t9 inquire there of some one else. o CttAPTEI II. We found a bank and streamed in. a small ecowd collected a:'ound tbe door, as it swung to Lehind the kid. The clerks suspended their opera- tions and looked at us in open- mouthed astonishment as we ranged ourselves aion the counter. "Is the manager of this concern in?" asked the Judze--"ttanls off." he added, in a roar. as the Kid. slipping her lithe hand under the brasswork protecting the counter. began to finger the scales. The Kid. unmoved, satisfied her curiosity, then, withdrawing her hand, rested her elbow on the counter, an dropping her chin in the palm. gazed at he clerks with stolid indifference. "The manager is in, what do you wantr" asked the clerk. "Let up, Israel," said the Judge, falling back a step, and waving his hand significantly toward Van Hoeck. "We wish to negotiate a loan on the security of a large diamond that we have brought home from the cape," said Van Hoeck. , d:ight hundred and twenty carats, fust water." added the Judge; ,'the grandest stone in this almighty uni- verseP' There was a whispered consulta- tion among the clerks, and one went into a private room at the back of the bank from which he presently re- turned with the manager. "I am the manager; what do you want?" Van Hoeck repeated his stetement. "And what security can you gi me that the diamond is genuine?" asked the manager, with a pleasant smile, "or that it is legitimate.y yours to dispose of?" "You will allow, sir, if anyone had lost a stone of this kind he would have made it unsafe for us to walk about with it in the daylight," re- plied the Judge, "and as for its bein' genuine, you kin hey the security of your own eyesight." ,'I do not profess to be a judge of diamonds, and I can have nothing to do with it," said the manager delini- tively. We were disgusted with Southamp- ton, and, had we possessed the means, should have gone on at once to Lon- don, where we might have found some former acquaintance to help us out of our present difficulty. But we had nothing--nothing in the world but the things we stood upright in and the great diamond. For our smaller finds and our implements we had sold at Natal to make up enough to pay our steera'e home. and our spare clothes, our knives, every available thing we had bartered away on our passage for food to supple- ment the miserably insufficient steer- age fare. "re kin not pawn the Kid." said the Judge, ,.end that's about the only perk;sit as we could well do with- out." It was now well upon three o'clock, and we felt the need of food. having eaten nothing since six, when our last rations were served out to us on the ,,Southern Cross." Our position was a desperate one. With millions in our possession, we might starve in the street, or have to take refuge in the work-house. It was odd, indeed, and very unpleasant also. At length, being unable to see an), way out of our difficulty, we made our way o a police-station and laid our case be- fore the inspector. ,,Well, my good fellows." said he. having heard us out, "I don't see how I'm to help you. The mayor is ',Yes," said I: and, turning over my hand. l opened it: showing the leather case strapped to my wrist, which contained the Great Hesper, as we called oar diamond. The baronet was thundcrst.'uck by the prodigious size of the stone, for he co dd see that the leather fitted it closely. "We had it tested at Natal." said Van Hocck: "it is a white diamond and if not uf the first water, is cer- tainly of the second; it weighs 20 can.ts. '.s it possible? ('ome with me. Eight hundred aud twenty carats!" said Sir Edmund. in great excite- ment. "Bring a light into the library at once," he called to one of t le servants. We went into the library, where I cut the stitches o the case, took out the Great Hesper and put it into Sir Edmund's hadd. by which time NOVEL MECHANICAL DEVICES, A great invention is a shoe with a hinged sole for the purpose of facil- itating putting it on or off.

"It is an extraordinary size, is it not, papa?" she asked. "Extraordinary, indeed! The Koh-i-noor is not a fourth of the size! See what the book says about that; get down Haydn, my dear." Miss Lascelles fetched the book, while her father still examined the stone, as an artist mtght a master- piece, and Dsently read aloud-- "Its original weight was nearly 800 carets, but it was reduced by tar unskillfulness of the artist--Bee- these, a Venetian to 279 carats; its shape and size resembled the pointed half rose cut of a small hen's eggl the value is scarcely computable though two millions sterling have been mentioned as a justifiable price, if calculated by the scale employed by the trade. This diamond was reeut in 1852, and now weighs 102 1-2 carats." "Good, good!" cried the baronet ,,With skilful cutting, a diamond of SuCh a form as this need not lose 100 carats. Heavens!" he exclaimed, turning to us, "you have the great- est treasure in the world." CHAPTER IIL The baronet spoke not one word about the aiamond during dinner, but when it was all over he said: "Well. now we will go back to the library; and you shall come with us, Edith, if our cigars will not be dis- agreeable to you, for we have a mar- velous matter to talk about." In the library Miss Lascelles seated herself beside her father, while we three men sat facing them on th other side of a small round table, on which I placed the diamond. At a little distance from us there was a lion skin on the floor, and on this the Kid threw herself and as she lay there looking toward us, with her chin resting in the palms of her hands and her elbows planted in the fur. we saw scarcely anything of her' but her great lustrous eyes. because of the shadow thrown by the lamp- shade.
