Then he stepped out into the night,
leaving a pool of water on the clean
blue tiles where he had stood.
0*REI1L.Y TAL.KS HOG I-ATIN.
In the days that followed his call
on Ignacio AlYarado. O'Reilly behaved
so openly that tho secret service
agent detailed In watch him relaxed
his vigilance. Certainly there waa
nothing suspicious in the conduct of a
fellow who sat all the morning tipped
back in a hotel chatr. languidly scan
ning the paseereby. whose afternoons
were spent on the streets or at the
soda fountain in .Manin's drug- store.
and whose evenings were devoted to
aimless gossip with hie countryman,
the newspaper writer. Manifestly this
O'Reilly was a harmless person. Hut
tho spy did not guess, how frantic
Johnnie war- becoming at this delay,
how he inwardly ciiafed and fretted
when two weeks had rolled by and
.-till no signal had come. Manin told
him to b?* patient; he a-csurcd him
that friends were busy in his behalf;
but Johnnie was eager to be up and
dointz. Thia inaction paralyzed him;
it made htm almost ill to think how
much time had slippi-d away. Then?
too. his money wat? running low.
At last, however, the day arrived
when the man with the gray necktie
raised his hat and wiped his brow as
he pH.-sed the Isla de Cuba. Johnnie
could scarcely hold himaelf in his
chair. By and by he rose, -stretching
himself, and sauntered after the fel
low. For several blocks he kept hlrft
in sight, without receiving* any fur
ther sign. The man paused to greet
friends, he stopped at several -shops,
and hie aimless wanderiage continued
for the b-est part of an hour, during
which he led the way to the outskirts
of the city. Fortunately O'Reilly's
shadow was nowhere In eight.
Without a glance over his shoulder
the man turned Into a large, walled
Inclosure. When Johnnie followed he
found himself in one of the old eem-.
eterles. Ahead of him. up a shady
avenue bordered with tree?, the

Mending that h? had mad? some mla

down the walk. Then at laat, to bla
great relief; ha heard a sibilant:
It came from behind a aereen of
shrubbery, and there he found the
Cuban waiting. The latter began

With a smile and quick grip of the
hand the messenger walked swiftly
away. O'Reilly returned to his hotel.
At last! One week, and this numb
lug, heartbreaking delay would end;
he would be free to take up hi? quest.
O'Reilly choked at tho thought; the
blood drummed In hie ears. Rosa
would think he was never coming: she
would surely believe that his heurt
had changed. As if it could! "O
God! Come quickly, If you love me."
Well, a week was only seven days.

But those seven days were more

that he lacked only strength of will

upon hia sincerity or as th? Indication

fully about joining the Insurrectos.
and O'Reilly would hav? been glad
to put him In the way of realising
this fantastic ambition to "taste the
salt of life" had It been In hie power;
but. since he himself depended upon
friends unknown to him. ho did not
dare to risk complicating matter?.
In fact, he did not even tell Branch
of his coming adventure.
The day of days dawned at last, and
Johnnie was early at Manin'? coda
fountain, drinking insipid beverage?
and anxiously watching the street.
In due time the negroes appeared,
their straw aarone laden with produce
which they Innocently dlspeaed of.
O'Reilly began to consult hi? watch
with such frequency that th? drug
gist Joked him.

bugle call. Down the street came

Then from the direction of the fort

distant shouting of men.
"Rebels!" some one cried.
"Dios mio, they are attacking the

Into a chair. "Madman!" he panted.
"I tell you our friend? have been be

to your hotel quickly."
For the first time durinz their ac
quaintance Manin heard the good-na

eyes were Marin?.*; he had let go or
himself completely. ?
