"And deliberately abaent myself, with

"Very likely It aoundi o to you, Oraf

"But that, flatly. Is the situation and I
can't change It to save my life. It's a
long way to bring you for an Interview
that may be so short; nevertheless, It
comes down. to Just this will you do a

Orafton literally glared at him.
"You're either Intoxicated or Insane,

fool nor a, child nor a lunatic myself, I

"And I'm willing; to let you, but I
cannot. There Is the whole business In

gusted grunt, and turned toward the
"I can't eat that stuff." he said, sour
ly. "However, their bottled goods are
honest, at least. Have a bottle of ale
with me, Grafton? But, of course you
-will ona men you can trot atone to
your own destruction. If you Insist."
The order was Riven; the bottles
came; the glaases foamed up and the
waiter1 retired once more. The air was
class ahd hot, tho malted stuff cold
and sparkling: both men drank deeply
and with satisfaction and over his
empty glass Colaon smiled at the other.
"Hang It, Orafton! I know Just how
absurd It must sound," he said. "I un
derstand perfectly how you feel, and
I was morally certain you would not
agree blindly; but as things stood, I
resolved to make the attempt at least."
"But, my dear man, why don't you
give a reason for It? This Is a business
matter of serious Importance you can't
expect me to trust you blindly with
17,000,000, you know. Tell me what is
up tell me who Is Involved and what
makes such a request necessary."
"And If I do explain," said Colson,
slowly, "will you stay, then?"
"It you can give a valid reason for so
absurd a thing," said Orafton, "I will
stay with you, yes."
"Urn I" Colson scowled at the oppo
site wall, "It means breaking my word
to other parties."
"I7e your own Judgment as to that"
"But well, perhaps I will, after all."
The scowl grew more thoughtful. "Oh I
let me think It over a few minutes,
The other nodded and lighted a cigar.
Colson, declining the weed, twisted his
chair about and tilted It, drumming
lightly with one shoe, as he revolved the
Orafton watched him curiously, as
tho minutes hurried by Colson seemed
to be having a hard time of It. His
brow was wrinkled and his head sunk
low. Now he grunted faintly; now he
pursed his lips Impatiently; now his
shoulders were elevated a trifle; now
he glanced over at Orafton and smiled
Five minutes passed, ten, fifteen, and
till Colson seemed to have reached no
decision, nut Orafton felt little Impa
tience. Ha was tired, and the chair
seemed very comfortable. Indeed, he
experienced a dellclously sleepy sensa
tion creeping over him. He felt beau
tifully complacent, serenely thankful
that no such problem as Colson's ex
isted to torture him.
Then his cigar dropped to the floor.
He would have risen to regain It but
Colson pushed him back Into his chair.
He felt nd resentment at Colson In
deed, be smiled approvingly at him.
And. nevertheless, Colaon. was acting
curiously. Chair, table, Colaon, and all
were sliding: slowly across the room!
"Whither were they bound? Orafton
had not sufficient interest to rise and
Investigate; he merely smiled. Yet
they went on and on and on! Orafton
And at that point Colson and the
furniture vanished through the wall
and Orafton dropped out of the realm
4K conscious things!
Tha Guest In Room 15.
A STUFFY, musty odor, as of an
unclean place, badly ventilated;
a sensation of coarse bedding;'
a sound of creaking and groan
ing and the straining of loose, old
Joints. These things Orafton seemod
to experience through a haze tl
veiled every senso.
Of course, he was at home nml In
bed. but conditions must have chanced
overnight, for he had believed himself
the owner of one of the best, dwelling
houses In the State. Also his eyes re
fused to opei) and past events to pleco
inomseives togetner coherently, inai,
doubtless, was ascrlbable to his recent
worry and the consequent abnormally
sound sleep. Orafton wished that he
could wake up and see things ab lie
knew they were sweet and clean and
Then a now element entered to
arouse him and set doubt at rest
From somewhere a warm breezo
stirred, and with It came the wretched
odor of stale, sour beert That at least
was foreign to the Grafton home, even
In dreams! His eyes came open with
an effort; a stronger effort brought
him to a sitting position.
What under the sun had happened?
Emphatically, the premises were
none of his. The room was small and
dingy, the paper old and very soiled,
the floor covered by the most forlorn
bit of Ingrain that had ever met Graf
ton's eye. Across the miserable apu.it
ment two small-paned windows nave
out upon a brick court; upon a' chair
his clothes were piled, and not too
neatly. And again came that-dreadful

odor of beer keg. ,
Orafton ihook himself. Every, bone
seemed to .ach, hit head ached, hi

narehejt. hla hand tramblad. nnlv after
a strong gathering of hi forcae did ha

him no doubt could exist, Colson had
managed to poison his ala and now
h Mi hart!
Ills head reeling, ha managed, to
stand erect and steady himself against
the rickety bedstead. II looked about
dully and Tils eye caught sight of a
plain Iron sink In the corner. He made
for It eagerly and turned tne faucet.
A grateful flow of cold water reward
No cup or class was in sight; he put
hi lip to tha.. pipe, drinking deeply,
and It refreshed him wonderfully. He
thrust his burning head under the cool
stream and held it there; he bathed
his stiffened Joints.
Stronger and steadier, he stifled any
qualms, reached for the grimy towel
in tha rack, and looked around him.
Well, tha environment was bad
enough In all conscience! A dirtier,
more squalid semblance of a human
habitation could hardly have been con
ceived. Was he in Colson's "hoteir
That seemed the only explanation. Ha
searched again, and found painted on
the small glass transom the number
IS. It seemed to confirm, his surmlsa.
He was a guest of Room 15.
TTnw lnn hail ha heen there? That
phaae came over Orafton with a stag
gering rush. Was It no, It couldn't
be the 21st. His dosing must have
occurred at about midnight on the
lth of May, and no drug of which ho
had any knowledge would give one
two days of unconsciousness without
fatal results. ,
He was most certainly alive again,
and therefore It must be the 20th of tha
month. The sun In the narrow court

Yet the timepiece was In his pocket
and hla roll of hills aa welt Evidently
the game was far too profitable for
even the keepers of the houae to make
Petty robbery an object; they had left

and slowly drew on his clothes. Then

groaning bed, to consider matters In

Beyond question, Colson had lured nlm
to this den for the sole purpose of hold
ing him. Also beyon.'. question, Colson's
motive had bean to have him out of
Kenyonvllle during the 21st Logically,
therefore. Colson was a criminal and
one of a puzzling sort.
Had he fallen Into trouble and devised
some such desperate scheme as this to
free himself? Or was he a professional
criminal who had worked for years to
ward thl big game? . . .
To save himself, Orafton couldn't de
termine the question to his satisfaction.
It a professional, Colson had been a con
summate artist; If not a consummato
fool. In that he had not dared lay mat
ters before Orafton In straightforward
But whatever his Intent or his past
record, Colson had accomplished one
very serious thing in the drugging 01

he intend to make of It?

Kenyonvllle. rearranging matters to
his own liking. Perhaps ha was ex
plaining wny uraiton naa not re
turned, and a few more things. Per
haps he was planning for tomorrow,
and what? That was it!
Even granting that the man had
matters all hla own way when the
appointed time came to settle the
notes, Just what would he do? The
possibilities were so wide, and many
ot them appeared so extremely far
fetched that Orafton hesitated at fix
ing a definite plan of action for the
lately trusted debtor.
One certainty remained, however.
Colson meant to do something, and It
was reasonably sure to be something
desperate; more than that It would be
something highly detrimental to Orat
ion's Interests. It might mean his
ruin. Very surely. It would mean a
great deal ot trouble.
With Orafton to soe trouble was to
forestall It by every means possible.
He would go back to Kenyonvllle wltn
nil posalBlo speed, and when he found
Colson, matters would become merry
In the last degree for one of them.
Orafton rose and went back to the
sink; and with pocket comb and the
fragment of a mirror he contrived an
apology for a toilet after which he
gathered up hla overcoat and walked
to the door.
