The Sleeping House Mystery.
THE clearing of John'Storm was a
nfiir. ilais' wonder. In court Has-
sam Ali testified that Burns had been
?cekiiiR some facts regarding the past,
and that he, Hassain Ali, had suc
ceeded in aiding him to a certain
extent. But the name of Bicnreith
had never been mentioned during
those seances. He could not imagine
why Burns had committed the crime.
Thfire was no evidence to be found
that the two men had ever exchanged
a word. He was rather confounded
at the lurn of events. The broken
phrase, "But author " was as
much a mystery to him as to the
court. It was inexplicable. Hassani
Ali received a good deal of con
temptuous grilling from the District
Attorney, but the witness answered
every question calmly and in detail,
.Ic admitted that he was a disciple
"of the Hindu cult; admitted that he
had the gift of second sight at times.
There were many who could testify
to this. Hasfsam Ali finally left the
witness chair with honors in his
"A subsequent mve'stiKaHo'Tr"by"tlie
police revealed nothing to his dis
credit so far-a's the law was concerned.
1 His past, from the circus days to the
present day, was an open book. In
deed, Hassam Ali was himself the in
stigator of this research. He wanted
It definitely understood that while his
cult was not looked upon favorably
by the police, he was not the object
of any Justifiable suspicion. His grave
air, his unfailing patience under the
, gibes of the interrogator, his frank
fnesst all won him at least the respect
fcl his detractors.

It was remarked, however, among
- his associates that John Storm lost a
, detl of his impetuosity and that in
'his subsequent cases he was no longer
brilliant and erratic, but calm and
Mfady, always extremely well fortified
with Ills facts.
New Vork city has without doubt
the moat conglomerate population of
h any city in the world. The only alien
race which does not find habitat in
'New York Is the Aztec, and that is
erely because the Aztec is extinct.
Tpid each race has quietly formed a
ei.of Its own within the greater

On a certain night, two weeks after
the Bienreith case, recorded1 in the
I rurecedwg chapter, Zijdora heard the
cjaek chime ;the hour'Ofv. bhe went
upstairs to her room "a.d threw up
the shade foV a final glance at the
heavensand paused in amazement.
Coming toward the house was the
strangest procession she had ever
seen. Turbans, flowing robes and
white pantalettes, here in this worka-,
day city of New York! She rubbed
her eyes as if striving to awake. She
looked again. They were trooping
sitentlv un the stens. She next hoard
y Ui thunder of the knock.tr, which, no

buttons. She then became alive to
t thai, fact tlut this was reality. She
reached the head of the stairs Jim

"Oh, you wish to see tuy uncle?"
said Zudora, greatly relieved.
"And thou irt his daughter?"
"Ills niece. I will call hinr."
She left the haltway and sought the
mystic room, where she found Has
sam Alr crouched over his globe. H6
looked up impatiently.
"Some Hindus to see jou, uncle."
"Hindus, at this time of night? Why
didn't you send Ahmed to me? It
lowers you in hi opinion to take upon
yourself to do his Work. Hindus;
what can they want, I wonder?"
"I'm sure I don't know, nor care,"
a bit angry at being rebuffed by her
uncle. , ,
When Hassain AH stood before his
guests there was some time wasted in
"You arc Hassam Ali, the nun who
"I am." '
"Your servant here recommended
you to us. Sahib, we arc in the midst
of a, strange mystery. In our abode
the god of sleep comes suddenly and
unawares. Our own god seems to
have forgotten us. This dread thing
comes almost instantly, nnd we are
taken in sleep no matter what pose
we are in. That we are here tonight
and not under the evil god's influence
is due to the fact that we waited out
side the octagonal room."
"The octagonal room," repeated
Hassam Ali thoughtfully.
"You are known to us as a great
yogi, a seer into the future. Will you
aid us to find out what causei tills
dreaded sleep? Our religious cere
monies are being interfered with."
All this Was in an English that was
only fairly understandable. Here and
there Hassam Ali's man interpolated
the right word.
"You will, accompany us, Huzoor?"
Hassam Ali smiled and nodded.
Here was an advch.tUrc that rather
appealed to him. More than that, it
would banish from his Wind, at least
temporarily, certain psychological
agencies which were making their
power felt more and more strongly
as the days went by.
I must go, too, uncle," said Zudora.
"Hurry, then. I should like to see
