I The Mystery
:: By BURTON E. STEVENSON
; ; Copyright, 1913, by Burton E. T
"MonMpiir N n rnminnr with tne
facts as 1," he nnswcred In a sarcastic
tone. "lie knows that Drouet was
killed while searching for a packet of
letters which would lufte couinronils
ed most seriously n great Inily. He
knows that M. Vantlne was killed
while endeavoring to open the drawer
after Its secret hud heen revealed to
him by the maid of that same gieat
Indy, who was hoping to get a rewind
for them. Morel met de.ith directly
Bt the hands of Croehaid because he
was n traitor and deserved It."
More and more fascinated. 1 stared
nt him. What secret wns vfc. I ask
ed myself, from this atonHliIng man?
"But even yet." 1 stammcied, "1 do
not understand. We have opened the
secret drawer of the cabinet there
was no poison. How could It hae
killed Drouet and Mr. Vantlne?"
"Very simply." said M. I'lgot coldly
"Death came to Drouet and M. Van
tlne because the maid or tnad.nne la
duchesso mistook her left hand for her
right. The drawer which contained
the letters Is at the loft of the cabinet
see," nnd he pressed the series vof
springs, caught the little Handle and
pulled the drawer open. "You will no
tlce that the letters ate gone. The
drawer which Drouet and M. Vantlne
opened," and here his voice became ti
little strident under the stiess of emo
tion, "is on the right side of the cabi
net, exactly oppuslte the other and
opened by a similar combination. But
there is one great diffeieuce. About
the first drawer there Is nothing to
harm any one; the other Is guarded by
the deadliest poison the world has ever
known. Observe me. gentlemen!"
As he spoke he bent over the desk
and pressed three fingers along the
right edge. Theie was a sharp click
nnd a section of the Inlay fell out
ward, forming a handle. Just as I had
seen It do on the other side of the
M. Pigot hesitated an Instant. Then,
catching the handle firmly with his
armored hand, he drew It quickly out
There was a sharp clash as of steel
ou steel and the drawer stood open!
M. Pigot, cool nnd imperturbable,
held out to us, with a little smile, a
hand which showed not a quiver of
emotlon-bls gauutleted- hand; and I
saw that on the back of It were two
tiny depressions. At the bottom of
each depression lu a diup of bright
ted liquid. Wbat nerves of steel this
man possessed! "
"That liquid, gentlemen." he said in
his smooth voice, "is the most power
ful poison ever distilled by man. Those
two tiny drops would kill a score of
people, and kill them lnstnntly. Its
odor betrays Its origln"-and. Indeed,
the air was heavy with the scent of
bitter almonds-"but tho poison or
dinarily derived from that source is as
nothing compared with this. Us dis
tillation was supposed to bo one of the
lost arts, but tho secret was rediscov
ered by this mnn Crochard. No secret.
Indeed, is safe from him. No man can
stand ngalnst him. Even the secret
of this drawer was known to him, and
be availed himself of It when need
M. Pigot paused, his head bent in
"Now, M. Simmon." he said briskly
in an altered voice. "If you will have
the kindness to hold the drawer for a
moment In this position. I will draw
the serpent's fangs. There Is not the
slightest dauger." he added, seeing
thnt Simmonds very naturnlly hesl
Thus assured. Simmonds grasped
the handle of the drawer, and held It
open, while the Frenchman took from
his pocket a tiny flask of crystal.
"A little farther." he sald:jind as
Simmonds. with evident effort, drew
the drawer out to Its full length, a
tiny, two tlned prong pushed itself
forward from uiideruealh the cabiiict.
There are the fangs," said M. Pigot.
He held the mouth of the flask under
first one nnd then the other, passing
his other hand cnrefully behind and
above them "Tim nnlsun la lipid In
place by what we In French call Mt-1
traction caplllalre I do not know the
English; but I drive It out by intro
ducing the air behind It -ah. you see!"
He stood erect nnd held the flask up
to the light It wnR half full of the
"Enough to decimate France." he
said, screwed the stopper carefully
Into place and put the flask Into his
pocket. "Itelense the drawer. If you
please, monsieur." he added to .Sim
monds. It sprang back into place on the In
stant, the arabesqued bundle snapping
up with a little click.
"You will observe Its Inceuulty." said
M. Pigot "It Is really most clever.
For whenever the hand, struck by the
poisoned fangs, loosened Its hold on
the drawer, the drawer sprang shut us
you see. and everything was as before
except that oue man more had tast
ed death. Now I open It. The fnugs
fall again; they strike the gauntlet;
but for that, they would pierce the
hand, but death no longer follows. By
turning this button. I lock the spring,
and the drawer remains open. The
man who devised this mechanism was
so oroud of It that be described It. in

1 f that memoir among the archives of
the French National library; the orig

who connected that memoir with this
cabinet who rediscovered the mech

newed the poison."

Is seems to be a "strordlnnry feller."
observed tirady. relighting his clgnr.
"lie is." agreed M. Pigot. quietly; "a
most extraordinary mnn. But even he
is not Infallible: for. since the mem
oir made no mention of the other se
cret drawer tile one In which mndnme
Ja duchesee concealed her love letters
7-Crochard knew nothing of It. It was
'that fact which defeated his combi
nations a puro accident which he
could not forsee. And now. gentlemen.
It shall be my pleasure to display be
fore you some very beautiful bril
liants." CHAPTER XVI.
The Michaelovitch Diamonds.
NOW. I perceived that the draw
er was filled with little rolls
of cotton, u lilcli had been
pressed Into it quite tightly.
M. Pigot remou'd the tlr.st of these,
unrolled it ami spread It out upon the
desk, and Instantly we caught the glit
ter of diamonds- diamonds so large, so
brilliant, so faultlessly white that I
drew a deep breath of admiration.
'Even M. Pigot. evidently ns he prided
himself upon his Imperturbability,
could not look upon those gems wholly
uumow-d. A slow color fiept Into his
checks as he gazed down at them, and
he picked up one or two'of the larger

ones to admire flieiu more closely.
Then he unfolded i oil after roll, stop
ping fiom time to time tor u look at
the larger biilliants
"These are from the famous neck
lace which the grand duke inherited
from his grandmother." he said, calling
our attention to a little pile of mar
velous gems in one of the last packets.
"Not one of these brilliants would be
marketable In Hurope for many years.
Each of them is a marked gem. Here
In America oiir police regulations are
not so complete, but I fancy that ccu
here he would have had difficulty In
marketing Ibis one." And be unfolded
the last packet and held up to the
light a rose diamond which seemed to
me as large as a walnut and aglow
with lovely color
"Perhaps you have stopped to ad
mire the Mazarin diamond In the gal
lery of Apollo at tlie Louvre." said M.
Pigot "Theie Is always ,t crowd
about that en-e. and a special attend

death left tills remarkable collection to

gesture toward the glittering heaps,
"what shall we do with all this?" '
"There's only one thing to do." said
Grady, awaking suddenly ns from a
trance, "nnd that's to get them In a
safe deposit box as quick ns possible. ,
There's no police safe I'd trust with
"Cnn we find a Iwr of safe deposit
nt this hour of the night?" asked M.
Pigot glancing at hiV watch "It is.
almost 1 oVlock and a half."
"That's easy in New York." said Gra
dy. "We'll take 'em over to tho Day
nnd Night hank on Tlfth avenue. It
never closes. Wait till 1 gut something
to put 'em in."
He went out and came back present
ly with a small valise.
"This will do." he said, "Stow 'em
nway. and I'll call up the bank nnd
nrrange for the box."
Simmonds nnd Pigot rolled up tho
packets carefully nnd placed them In
the valjse. while I sat watching them
In n kind of daze. And ! understood
the temptation which would nssnll n

"There they are." said Simmonds and
closed the bag with a snap lis Grnd.y

Grady, "and one of onr wagons Is nt

Grady sat down nul got out a fresh

struck n mntch. "what do you think
of these Frenchmen, anyway?"
"They're marvelous." I said. "Even
yet I can't understand how he knew
so much. For Instance how did bo
know about those letters?" '
"Fact Is," broke In Grady, "that's tho

suppressing everything which would

ed, "which I supposed were known to
no one except myself nnd two other
persons, and yet M. Pigot knew them.
Then, again, how did ho know so cer
tainly just how tho mochnnlsm work

that mechanism as though he was fa
miliar with it. Of course, he may havo

cret memoir. He may even havo had a

"And a great actor." Grady supple
mented. "Hello! Who's that?"
Tho front door had been flung open.
There was an Instant's colloquy with
the desk sergeant, then n rapid step
crossed the outer ropm. nnd Godfrey
burst In upon us.
He cast a rapid glance nt the Bouio
cabinet, nt the secret drnwer standing
open, empty, and then his eyes rested
"So he got away with It, did lie?" ho
"Who do you think yon are?" shout
ed Grady, his face purple, "coming In

' And he stalked out. slamming the
door behind him.
Almost before the echo of that slam
ming door hud died away Grady was
beside the sergeant's desk.
"Get out tho reserves," he ordered,
"nnd have the other wagon around.
Thone headquarters to rush every man
available to the Day and Night bank,
and say It's from me!"
In a moment the reserves came tum
bling out, struggling Into their coats.
There was a clatter of hoofs In tho
street as the wagon dashed up. The
reserves piled into it, permitting me
to crowd In beside them. Grudy jump
ed to the seat besldo the driver.
I clung to the hand rail as the wagon
swayed back and forth or bounded into
tho air as it struck the car tracks, and
stared out Into the night struggling to
understand. Could Godfrey be right?
But of course he was right! Some in
tuition told me that. At the bank wo

eyes open and stnrlng apparently at

through the group. -I
"Where's Kelly?" he demanded.
I At the words u white faced man in

ho had plainly dropped exhausted.
"Oh, there you are!" and Grady
glowered at hlra ferociously. "Now

I got down nnd opened' the door, there
' wnsn't nobody in the wagon but Mr.
Simmonds. I spoke to him and be
didn't answer and then I touched him
nnd bo kind of fell over nnd then I
rushed In here and phoned tho station;
but they said you'd already started for
the bank: nnd then we went out nnd
brought him In here nnd -that's nil I
"Mr. Simmonds had a little valise
with him. Did you notice it?"
"Yes. sir. And I looked for It In the
wagon, but It ain't there."
Grady turned away with a curse as
four or five men ran In from the street
the men from headquarters, I told my
self. I could bear him Calking to them
In sharp, low tones, nnd then they de
parted as suddenly as they bad come.
The reserves also hurried away, nnd
I concluded that Grndy was trying to
throw n net about the territory In
which the fugitive was probably con
cealed. But my interest In that ma
neuver was overshadowed for the
time being by my anxiety for Sim
monds. J picked bp bis right band

breath of relief, for it was uninjured,

'He's had n taste- or whiff of some

my scalp. I remembered the little flask i
half full of blood red liquid which
Crochard carried In bis pocket.
But ho had not meant murder this
time. I remembered that Godfrey had

tho end of a few minutes Simmonds
drew n loug breath and sat erect
Then his eyes opened, und be sat sway

"Where nin 1?" be gasped. Then his
ycs encountered mine. "Lester!" he
said. "Where Is he Pigot?"
Scarcely knowing what I did I grop
ed my way to the telephone nnd asked
for Godfrey's number, hoping ugrilnst
hope absurdly, and nt Inst, to my In
tense surprise nnd relief, I heard his
voice, not a very amiable voice.
"I tried to "get you," I explained, "ns

going to look nt the cabinet. I phoned

Godfrey laughed shortly.
"It was u wild goose chase," ho said,

But even then I'd have got back If we

"But, Godfrey." I said. "I can't un

Where Is Pigot?"
"He's on the Snvoie, bound nnd gag

I could only gasp.
"And to think I didn't suspect!" add
ed Godfrey bitterly. "We stood there
nnd saw that yacht with the. French '
flag walk away from us. We saw her

that man talking to Pigot"
"Yes," I said breathlessly, "yes!"
"Well, that man was Crochard. Hei

out calmly to meet bis dear friends of
