The city was in a turmoil. Excited
men and women crowded the streets

night in Richmond or in the next five
to come, for the fate of the city hung
in the balance during the seven dajs'
battle. Somers carried off his novel
experience boldly, and, passing into
the Spotswood hotel, he sought a dire c
tory. His search for Holbin's name
was at once successful, and., taking a.
note of the address, he went forth and
prepared himself for the final trial.
His safety lay in the character of the
service he was rendering to the woman

But Raymond had left his room imme

apartment into the garden opened and
husband and wife entered. With a cry
of amazement he rushed into the room,
drawing his sword as he entered.
'Who are you sir?why are "you iu

drew his sword instantly and con
fronted him. Holbin had paused and
was staring wildly.
"Yes!" Somers gently put aside the
slender form which instantly inter
posed between him and the man he had
sought. His eyes scanned the familiar
uniform of his old enemy in doubt.
"Speak out, sir!"
"Spare your voice. Raymond Holbin.

Madman, murderer, we settle many
debts to-day." Blind, almost, with his
rage, Somers rushed upon his enemy.
Their swords clashed as facing each
other, the two men circled about the
room. Then Holbin's sword went
down. With incredible quickness he
avoided the thrust which was almost a
part of the disarming! blow, rushed to
the casement window, leaped into it
and burst open the blinds. His hand

The man in the window reel ed back and
plunged headlong into the room.
"It couldn't be helped, captain," said
the soldier,loweringhis weapon. "Once
outside he would have given us a long
chase. Did he hit you?" Well might
he ask the question. Capt. Somers was
deathly pale as he looked upon the body
of his foe.
"No he said, utterly at a loss to un

the moment of the tragedy, reeled
against the all, sick and faint, but the
instinct of a woman whose loved one is
in danger instantly rallied her to her
senses. She was the first to realize the
full significance of the soldier's action
"You have saved our lives," she said,
weakly "any reward you may claim is
yours. The man was evidently a spy."
Her hospital experience and familiar

brave, she took her stand at the foot

Somers returned and bent above the
figure of his enemy, his mind at work.
The reference by Louise to the dis
patches, the blue uniform, the horse
tied in the yard, the hour, and the
character of the man aroused a multi
tude of suspicions. From the pocket
he drew a sealed packet and a folded
paper, the latter a pass through the

avowal that he could not disregard.
