Then we see him In his own home, so absorbed in the puzzle that he neglects his meals, forgets to sleep, and pays no attention to a burglar who enters the house in the small hours of the morning and "lifts" valuables from right under his nose. Mrs. Casey now takes a hand In the game and "assists her puzzle-mad husband out of the bouse through the window. Casey takes solace on a bench in the park, where, during a brief nap, be sees tbe puzzle work itself out In a dream. He wakes np and frantically tries to remember the solution. his actions finally arousing tbe suspicions of a park policeman, who takes him to the police station. CaBoy Is assigned to a cell, where he works awny on a makeshift puzzle, while the desk sergeant and the reserves become so absorbed in the confiscated puzzle that they pay no at- tention to their duties. Next morning Casey is taken before the judge and given a speedy trial. Tbe judge discharges him, then, having become Inter- ested In the puzzle, begins to mix Justice and baseball In an amusing way. Meanwhile Casey gets another puzzle and goes to a ball game. The players, managers and umpire finally get Interested In the solu- tion of the puzzle, with tbe result that the game Is postponed, greatly to the disgust of the audience, which Is composed largely of delegates of the National Press Association convention, then being held in the city.
