Solano must have conspired with the

that insisted on coming; to the surface,
and the youngsters were soon upon their
way messengers of peace or war, guar
dians of a nation's secret documents, and
keepers of a cipher that was destined to
bewilder the ablest interpreters of Ger
many and of Japan.
Brockett had figured on catching the
earliest morning train to New York, and
the boys further agreed that, instead of
riding clear through to the new termi
nals In the metropolis, they would drop
off in Jersey City, spend an hour In
circling round that busy burg, and then
take one of the ferries to Manhattan,
thus baffling any enemies who might be
tipped to await them, at the great rail
road station. They were blocking out ad
ditional plans when they were suddenly
intercepted by a huge man of rather
more than middle age a gigantic Ger
man, white of mustache and shaggy as
to brows a Bismarck come to life, and
doubled in his bulky power.
The immense German came loitering
down the street, almost deserted at this
early hour, and almost collided with So
lano The Cuban respectfully sidestepped
to permit the old gentleman's passage,
and the massive German, walking pain
fully, uncertainly, as though troubled
with rebellious feet, staggered almost

he beamed upon the youngsters, who had
advanced with ready hands to aid him.
and leaned for an Instant upon Brocketfs

Brockett promptly began a process of
first aid to the injured tie, when the huge
German, seizing him with a hand whose
grip showed no trace of feeble age,
emitted a loud bellow of "Bollce Bo
Uce' Robbers' Robbers!"
The astounded Brockett strove to break
loose from the old man's grasp, but. the
German's clutch was one of steeL Strong
men, athletes of renown, had tried that
deadly wrestle In old days In the Father

rushed to the assistance of his captured
friend, tha baron shoved him away with
the open palm of his disengaged hand,
and once more that hoarse yell of "Bo

A whistle blew in the distance, and
there came the clattering sound of heavy
feet coming upon the rapid run. A stal
wart officer rushed up, took In the ap
parent situation at a glance, and laid
a detaining hand on Brocketfs shoulder.
"What's the trouble, sir?" the police

the policeman, when there was another

with a crash that fairly shook the street.
Brockett. regaining his feet at once,
made a half turn, and darted off, while
the astounded policeman, making one
wild clutch In the air, managed to catch
his toe against the prostrate form of the
baron and fell heavily upon him. The
grunt with which the baron hailed the
advent of the officer upon his stomach
waa a ntung antl-ciimax to the thud of
his earlier fall
Solano dashed after his friend, but the
second policeman sprang eagerly to In
tercept biro. Brockett, glancing back In
full night, saw tha predicament of the
Cuban, and. halting for an . Instant,
shouted. ""Slid. Ramon, slider'
Solano went to the pavement In a
compact, mo ring mass, ana shot along
the stones, feet first. The oncoming
shoes caught the policeman on the
legs. He rose like some light and joy
ous bird, shot through the air with a
howliof dismay, and joined the popu
lar assembly on ths atony ground. Be
fore any of the three fallen men could
pull his sensesatogether or even strug
gle to his feet, Brockett and Solano
had turned the nearest corner, dodged
up an alley, and headed down a side
street. As they ran they heard hoarse
bellowlngs. the shrilling of whistles,
arid th thudding of clubs upon the
paveme but the sounds grew fainter,
fainter, 7aded to a whisper, and died
away. The boys pulled up In the shad
ow of a flat-building, and regained their

marked Brockett. "That bump will
keep him In bed a week. If It doesn't
cripple him for life. It's a vicious
trick, a devil's own bit of work, but I
couldn't see any other chance. What
on earth waa the Idea In that big; fel
low's head. I'd like to knowT"
"If your top-lepece isn't solid Ivory."
returned Solano, "you know well
enough. It's a dollar to a crushed
lemon that our Japanese friend was
waiting around tha next corner to grab
the papers, and I'd -risk a little some
thing that those policemen were plant
ed ahead of time where they could
come forward in a hurry.
Tou slid beautifully, Ramon,"
laughed Brockett as they resumed
their march, jogging along at a fairly
rapid gait. "If you had only slid home
that way when we needed it on about
ten afternoons I could mention, we
could have saved a flock of games."
The Cuban flushed, and then laughed
back at his friend.
"This was a different occasion. Harry
1 felt more as If I were sliding at an
umpire this time. Somehow or other I
never could bear the Idea of spiking an
infielder, and that's why I slowed up so
often when I should have hit the grit."
"This time, though." Brockett chuckled,
"you slid for keeps. I shudder to think
what would have happened to that police
man If you had only had your spikes on."
Solano ".topped, and lifted one foot.
Something flashed, keenly, venomously,

"and that officer must have the worst
looking pair of shins that were ever
taken to a hospital. Honestly, Harry, I'd
feel like a brute if It wasn't for the cir
cumstances and for the value of the work
that we hae set ourselves to do."
Silently Brockett shook ths Cuban's
hand, and the youngsters, fully rested
from their run, jogged onward to the
The jonrney north was made without

in figuring out as complex and ramified
a route as possible. With railroad maps
and time-tables, the boys outlined a tour

Brockett, with a good-sized map in
hand, drew out a pencil, and began
marking down a few lines of connection.

wrested the pencil from his hand.

The boys did full justice to their
lunch, and sauntered back to their seats.
Their maps and papers lay apparently
undisturbed, but Solano contracted his
black eyebrows significantly as he ex
amined the time-table. It had been
opened and the binding stamp had been
torn In two.
"Still after us, old man," remarked
the Cuban. "No. no; don't fasten any

the track of the Newark, players, bear

eray-sleeved arm reached out from the
group of victors and caught Brockett by

looked into the grim, weather-beaten

ths Iron Man and the boys. The grating
voice of Joe McGlnnlty carried a long
distance, and If there was any one with

from childhood. Brockett nervous and
agitated at this loud announcement of
his name, yet secretly pleased at the
patronage of ths great old warrior,
flushed and stammered, while Solano's
eyes bespoke chagrin and apprehension.
"Tell you something, Brockett." ths

Bolano's eyes telegraphed a message.
and Brockett understood. Speaking in a
voice loud enough to be heard halfway
to the grand stand, he answered, "Yes.
Two o'clock be all right? I'll be there,"
And then, shaking the Iron Man's hand,
retreated once more to ths shelter of ths
"Annoying luck, that" remarked Solano.
"If any one was hunting us in that ball
park it's a certainty thst Mr. McOlnnlty
tipped us off in grand style. You made
the proper play, though, by making an
appointment which we will b unable to
keep. It may lead some ons of our faith

"Baseball luck is a queer thing." said
Brockett half angrily "I was lucky
enough to hit McGlnnlty for two singles
and a three-bagger the afternoon we
played the Newark team and he didn't

times he'd net er have remembered me, I
wish he had fanned me tnrea trips on

The youngsters wandered arouna jersey
City for a brief period, doubling on tbelr
tracks seeral times. They glanced be
hind and around them ever and anon.
and were unable to discover any trailers
or pursuers, but a vague sense of worry
and uneasiness, an Indefinable dread,
seemed to be uppermost In their minds.
Finally, when It had grown amply dark,
they hurried to the row of ferries that
fringe the shore vof the North River, and
slipped aboard in the swarm of Jerseyltes
