Next weekwiJI commence a new story of in- tense domestic interest, entitled THE ¡ PEARL NECKLACE! i (A Story of a Mysterious Robbery), I BY ARTHUR APPLIN, Author of "The Chorus Girl," "The Stage Door," "Van Dylk Diamonds," "The Butcher of Bruton-street," etc., etc. This is the story of a great theft and its consequences. The scene opens at a. oountry house, at which there is a big party. Michael and Ruth Villette, brother and sister, in a discussion, disclose that Mike is in love with a gamekeeper's daughter, around whom there is some mystery, while Ruth is as good as en- gaged to a Mr. Harvey, M.P. But Miriam, Ruth's supposed friend, has designs on Mr. Harvey. The Villette family are dreadfully in need of money, and Ruth gives her brother her jewels to pawn. He takes them away, and when showing them to his /sweetheart, dis- covers a pearl necklace, which he recognises as belonging to Miriam, in the box. Miriam oontrives that Harvey shall witness this scene. Both Mike and Harvey jump to the conclusion that Ruth has stolen the necklace, and Mike, to divert suspicion and so that his sister's chances of marriage shall not be jeopardised, disappears. But Harvey knows of the theft, and believes Ruth guilty. Misled and tricked, he allows himself to become engaged to Miri- am, although he does not care for her. They are married, and then the trouble begins. Miriam's conscience begins to trouble her her husband finds she is deceitful; all this time Mike is having a very rough life; and Ruth is grieving over things. She, of course, thinks it was her brother who stole the neck- lace. There are quite a number of powerful soenes in this exciting and enthralling story which can- not be recounted here. All ends happily in a dramatic denouement, when it is proved that Miriam herself placed the necklace in Ruth's jewel box. This is quite the most moving and holding tale its author has ever written.
