"And closed ngnlu after Vnntlne
opened It?" i
"Yes." ' '
"It's possible. We must remember
thnt the poisoners of those days were
very Ingenious. But tliero i one tiling
that Isn't possible, nnd that Is tlmt u
poison which, If It Is administered as
wo think It Is. must be a liquid, could
remain In that cabinet fresh and ready
for use for moie than .'!00 years. It
would have dried up centuries ago.
Nor would the mechanism May In or
der so long. It must lie both compli
cated and delicate. Therefore it would
have to be oiled and overhauled from
time to time If It Is worked by a
spring and I don't see how cKe It can
be worked the spring would have to
be renewed and wound up.''
"Well?" I nsked as lie paused.
"Well, It Is evident that the drawer
contains something more recent than
the love letters of Louis XIV. It must ,
have been put In working order quite
recently. But by whom and for what ,
purpose? That is the mystery we
have to solve, and It is a mighty pret
ty one. And here's another objection."
lie added. "That Frenchman knew '
about the seciet drawer, because, ac
cording to our theory, he opened it and ,
got killed. Why didn't he also know
about the poison?"
That was an objection, truly, and
the more I thought of It the more feeri
oua It seemed.
"It may bo," said Godfrey at last,
"that D'Aurclle was going It alone
that he had broken with the gang"
"Of course there is a gang. This
thing has taken caieful planning and
concerted effort. And the leader of
the gang Is a genius! I wonder if you
understand how great a genius? Think!
He knows the seciet of the drawer of
Mine, de Montespan's cabinet. But,
above all, he knows the seciet of the
poison the poison of the Medici!
Do you know what that means, Les
ter?" ''What does It mean?" 1 asked, for
Godfrey uas getting ahead of ine.
"It' means he Is a great criminal a
really great criminal one of the elect
from whom crime has no secrets. Ob
serve. He alone knows the secret of
the poison. One of his men bleaks
away from him and pays for his mu
tiny with his life. He Is the brain;
the others nre merely the instruments!"
"Then you don't believe It was by
accident that cabinet was sent to Van
tine?" "By accident? Xot for an instant!,
It was part of a plot and a splendid
"Can you explain that to me too?"
1 queried a little ironically.
He smiled good nnturedly at my
"Of course this is all mere romanc
ing," he admitted. "I am the first to
acknowledge that. I was merely fol
lowing out our theory to what seemed
its logical conclusion. But perhaps
we are on the wrong track altogether.
Perhaps D'Aurelle, or whatever his
name is. Just blundered in like a moth
Into a candle flame. As for the plot
well, I can only guess at It. But sup
pose you and I had pulled off some big
lie stopped suddenlv and his face
went white and then red. "Lester!"
bo cried, his voice shrill with fear.
"The cabinet it isn't guarded!"
"Yes. It Is." I said. "At least I
thought of that!"
And I told him of the precautions I
bad taken to keep It safe. lie heard
me out with a sigh of relief.
"I think the cabinet Is safe for to
night And before another night, Les
ter, we will have a look for ourselves."
"Yes: for the secret drawer!"
"D'Aurelle and Vnntine found It." T
"It won't kill us. We will go about
it armored. Lester. That iwlsoned fang
may strike, but I'll be ready. Lester.
There will be no danger. Come, man!
(Why, it's, the chance of a lifetime to
'match ourselves against the greatest
criminal of modern times!"
His shrill laugh told bow excited be
"And do you know what we shall
(find in that drawer, Lester? But no
it Is only a guess the wildest sort of
guess-but if It Is rlght-lf It H
right! Anywuj. yon will help
Lester? Yon will come?"
There was a ulziudry in his man
ner not to be resisted.
"Yes," I Htiswcred. with a quick In
taking of the bientli; "I'll come!"
"I knew yon would! Tomorrow
night, then -I'll call for you here at
7 o'clock We will have dinner to
getherand then, hey for the gieat se
cret!" The door closed behind him, and hls
footsteps died away down the hall. 1
looked at my watch It was nearly 2
Dizzily I went to lied. lint my sleep
was broken bj a fearful dream a
dream of a serpent, with blazing eyes
and dripping fangs, poised -to stilke!
My first thought when I awoke not
morning was for I 'inks It was with
a lively sense of iclief that I heard
Parks' voice answer my call on the
"This Is Mr. Lester." I said. "Is ev
er thing all light?"
"Everything seiene. sir," he answer
ed. "It would take a mighty smooth
burglar to get In here now, slr."
"How Is that?" I asked.
"Reporters aie camped all around
the house, sir. They seem to think
somebody else will ou killed here to
day." "1 hope not." I said quickly. "And
don't let any of the reporters In nor
talk to them. Tell them they must go
to the police for their information. If
they get too annoying let me know,
and I'll have an olllier sent aiotind
Don't let anybody In the house no
matter what he wants unless Mr.
Gradyor Mr. Slminonds or Mr Gold
berger accompanies him Don't let
anybody In you don't know. If there
Is any trouble call me up. I want you
to be careful about this."
"I understand, sir"
"How is Rogers?" I nsked.
"Much better, sir lie wanted to
tret un. but I told him he mle-lit lis well
stay in bed, nnd I'd look after things.
I thought that was the best place for
"It is," I agieed. "Keep him there
as long as ou can. I'll come In dur
ing the lay. If possible. In any event,
Mr. Godfiey and I will be there this
evening. Call me at the ofllce if you
need me for anything."
"Very good, sir," said Parks again,
and I hung up
I glanced through Godfrey's account
of the affair while I ate my breakfast I
and noted with amusement the sly I
digs taken at Commissioner Grady, i
Under the photograph of the unknown
woman was the legend:
"Mr. Vantlne's Mysterious Caller I
(Grady Please Notice.)" I
And it was Intimated that when
Grady wanted any real Information I
about an especially puzzling case he
had to go to the Record to get it.
This, however, was merely by the
way, for the story of the double trag
edy, fully Illustrated, was flung across
many columns and was plainly consld
ered the gieat news feature of the,
I glanced nt two or three other pa- '
pers on my way downtown. All of
them featured the tragedy with a riot
of pictures. But when It enine to the I
story of the tragedy Itself their ac- I
counts were far less detailed and ln.tl-
mate than that In the Record. I sus
pected that It was the realization of
the Record's triumph which had caused
the descent of thji phalanx of report
era upon the Vantine place.
I went over the whole affair with
Mr RoVce as soon as be reached the
office and spent the rest of the day
arranging the papers relating to Van
tine's affairs and getting them ready
to probate. Parks called me up once
or twice for Instructions as to various
details. And then, toward the middle
of the afternoon, came the cablegram
from Paris which I had almost for
gotten to expect:
rtoyce & Lester New York:
Regret mistake In shipment exceedingly
Our representative will call to explain
ARMAND & SON.
So there was an end of the romance
Godfrey had woven and which I had
been almost ready to believe the ro
mance of design, of a carefully laid
plot and all that It bad been merely
accident after all.
I put the whole thing impatiently
awnv from me and turned. to other
work, but I found I could not conquer a
certain deep seated nervousness, bo at
last I locked my tfesk, told the boy 1
would not be back and took a cab for
a long drlvo through the park. I was
able to greet Godfrey with a amllo
when be called for mo at 7 o'clock.
"I'vo engaged a table at a little
place nround the corner," he said, "It
is managed by a friend of mine, nnd I
think you'll like it"
I did. Indeed, tho dinner was so
good that It demanded undivided at
tention. "Anything new?" 1 nsked as we
pushed back our chalro.
"No, nothing of any importance. The
tnnn nt the morgue has not been iden
tified, in the first place, the Paris po
lice have never taken his Bertlllon
measurements no hns never been ar-1
rested. More peculiar Is tho fact that
he hasn't been recognized here. The
police have no report of nny such man
missing " .
"That Is peculiar. Isn't It?" I com
mented. "It's very peculiar. It means one of
two things cither the fellow's friends
are keeping dnrk purposely or he didn't
havo any friends, here in New York
"Perhaps he had Just reached New
York and went direct to Vnntlue's."
I Godfrey's face lighted up.
I "From the steiimer. of coursel I
ought to have guessed as much from
the cut of his hair lie hasn't been
out of France moie than ten days or
so. Uxcuse me a moment"
He hurried away, and five minutes
passed before he came back.
"1 phoned the otllce to bend some
men around to the boats which came
in jesterday. If be was a passenger
some one of the stewards will recog
nize his photograph. There were three
boats he might have come on the Ad
riatic and Cccllle from Cherbourg and
La Touralne from Havre. There Is
nothing else that I know of," be added
, thoughtfully, "except that Freyllng
huisen thinks he has discovered the
uatuie of the poison. He says It is
some very powerful variant of prussle
"Yes," I said. "1 heard him say
something of the sort Inst night'
"Freyllnghulsen says that whoever
concocted this particular poison hns
evidently discovered a new way of do
lug It or rediscovered an old way. In
other words. If you can get a fraction
of a drop of It In a man's blood you
kill him by paralysis quicker than if
you put u bullet through his heart"
"Nothing can save a man, then?" I
I "Nothing on earth. Freyllnghulsen
thinks It Is a new discovery. I don't
I think some one has dug up one of
the old Medici formulas. Maybe It
was placed In tho secret drawer, so
that there would never be any lack of
ammunition for the mechanism."
, "Godfrey," I said, "aro you still bent
on fooling with that thing?"
I "More than ever. I'm "going to find
that secret drawer, and if tho fangs
strike well, I'm ready for them. See
here what I had made today."
He drew from his pocket something
that looked like a steel gauntlet sucb
as one sees on suits of old armor. He
lipped It over his right hand.
I "You see It covers the back of the
I hand completely," he said, "halfway
down the first joint of the fingers. It
is made of the toughest steel and
would turn a bullet And do you see
how It is depressed In the middle.
"Yes, I said. "I was wondering
why you had It made in that shape."
"I want to get a sample of that pol-'
son. Think what it is, Lester the
poison of the Medlcil"
I sat for a moment looking at him
half ln amusement half In sorrow.
He caught my glance and put the
gauntlet back Into bis pocket
I got out the cablegram and passed
It across to blm. Ho read it with
"That seems to put a puncture in
our little romance, doesn't it?" I asked
at last "Armand's man hasn't called
yet? I Buppose he'll be around to
morrow." "You will have to turn the cabinet
over to him, of course."
"Why, yes: It belongs to him at
least It doesn't belong to Vantine."
"Well, In spite of this," he said, "I
am still interested in that cabinet.
Lester, and I wish you would keep
possession of It as long as you can
At least I wouldn't glvo It up until he
delivered to you the other cabinet
which Vantine really bought"
"Oh, I'll make him do that," I agreed
quickly. "That will no doubt take a
few days-longer than thnt if Vantlne's
cabinet is In Paris."
"And now let us go down and have
a look at this one." he said, "as we In
tended doing. You will think mo fool
ish, Lester, but even that cablegram
hasn't shaken my belief In the exist
ence of that secret drawer."
"And all tho rest?" I asked.
"Ye?," he answered slow.ly, "and all
The Burning Eyes.
ODFREY said nothing more un-
til we stopped before tho Van
tine house, but I could see,
from bis puckered brows, how
desperately bo was trying to untan
gle this quirk in the mystery.
"The slego seems to h,ave been lift
ed;" I remarked, as we alighted.
"Parks telephoned me that yoar es
teemed contemporaries bad the placo
surrounded, 1 told blm to bold the
"Poor boys!" ho commented, smlliug.
"To think that all they know Is what
Grady is able to tel) them! Which
room is the cabinet In?" be asked.
"The anteroom 1 there at tho left
wnertj those two Bbuttorod windows
are. The cabinet Is in tho corner room.
There Is one window on this sido and
two on tho other."
Parks answeredthe bell almost In
stantly, and 1 could tell from tho way
bis faco chnnged how glnd he was to
"Well, Parks," I said, as wo stepped
Inside, "everything is all right I hope?"
"Yes, sir," he auswercd. "But but
It gets on the nerves a little, sir."
I heard a movement behind me, as
1 gave Parks my coat and turned to
neo Rogers sitting on tho cot
"Hello." 1 said, "so you're able to be
up, aro you?"
"Yes. sir," he nnswered, without
looking at me. "1 thought I'd como
down and keep Parks compauy."
Parks smiled a little sheepishly.
"1 asked him to, Mr. Lester." bo said.
"I got so lonesome nnd Jumpy here by
myself thnt I Just had to have some
body to talk to. especially after the
burglar alarm rang."
"The burglar alarm?" repeated God
frey quickly "What do you mean?"
"We've got a burglar alarm on the
windows, sir. It's usually turned oft
in the daytime, but I thought I'd bet
ter leave it on today, nnd it rang about
the middlo of the afternoon. 1 thought
at first that one of the other servants
bad raised a window, but none of
them bad. Something went wrong
with it 1 guess."
"Did you take a look nt tho win
dows?" I nsked.
"Yes. sir. A policeman came to see
what was the matter, and wo went
around and examined the windows,
but they were nil locked. It made me
feel kind of scary for awhile."
"Does the alarm work now?"
"No, sir. The policeman said there
must be a short circuit somewhere
and that he'd notify the people who
put It In. But nobody has come around
yet to fix It"
"We'd better take n look at the win
dows ourselves." said Godfrey. "You
stay here, Parks. We can fijid tbera,
all right and I don't want you to leavo
that door unguarded for a single in
stant" We went from window to window,
nnd Godfrey examined each of tbem
with a minuteness that astonished me.
for I bad no idea what be expected to
find. But we completed tho circuit of
the ground floor without his apparent
ly discovering anything out of tho way.
"Let's take a look at the basement"
be said, and led the way downstairs
with a readiness which told me that
he had been over the bouse before. In
a kind of lumber room, standing be
fore its single small window, his elec
tric torch In his band, be mnde a dis

ering with excitement, and threw a
circle of light on the jamb of the win
dow at the spot where the upper and
lower sashes met
"What Is It?" 1 asked after a mo
ment "1 don't seo anything wrong." I
"You don't? You don't see thnt this
bouse was to be entered tonight? Then
what does this mean?" I
With bis finger nail be turned up the
end of a small Insulated wire. And
then I saw that the wire bad been cut
"Yes," said Godfroy dryly, "that ro
mance of mlno is looking up again.
Somebody was preparing for a quiet
Invasion of the bouse tonight some
body, of course, Interested in that cab

tured. "He knew he hadn't any to lose.
When you put those wooden shutters

"Why can't wo ambush him?" I sug
gested. "Wo might try, but It will be a
mighty risky undertaking, Lester."
"Ono risky undertaking Is enough
for tonight," I said, with a sigh, for
my belief in tho existence of the se
cret drawer and the poison nnd all the
rest of It had come back with a rush.
"All right" Godfrey said. "But I'll
fix this break."
1 He got out his penknife, loosened
two or three of the staples which held
the wire In place, drew It out scraped
back the insulation and twisted the
ends tightly together.
"There," he added, "that's done. If
the Invader tampers with tho window
again he will set off the alarm. But
I Saw That thi Wlra Had Bes,n Cut.

Rogers was still sitting dejectedly on

?Iosely, I could boo that bo was white
"Havo you anything to toll us this

ho only shook his head.
"I've told you everything I know,
sir," he answered In n low voice.
"Well," I added briskly, "I'll have to

from the door, Parks."
