, about ten years ago, when I was con
nected with the secret service depart
ment of Scotland Yard, and was looking
softer the anarchists, who at that time
were, causing the greatest anxiety by
their activity in the direction of vio
lence and crime. Of the escape in ques
tion let the lines that follow speak.
The terrible explosion at Edinburgh
bad just taken place, whereby many
persons had lost their lives and many
'more been injured, and on all sides one
beard rumor of still more awful disas
ters in store.
One afternoon, early in January, the
ehef summoned me to his room, and
said: "Mr. Iturrington, I understand
you expect to achieve a good stroke to
night, if I am not mistaken."
I smiled as I made nnstter:. "I have
every confidence of doing so. Ily as
suming the character of an Irish-American
anarchist, I have discovered some
very useful information. Above alt, 1
hare unearthed n very hornets' nest in
6obo. kept by a Russian called
Markovski. By arresting the men
foynd in that club this evening, we
hall, In njl probability, secure several
gentlemen who are wanted in connec
tion with the Edinburgh trouble.
"I will tell you my arrangements for
this evening. There is to Ik- a meeting
at the club of which I hnic spoken be
tween eight and eight-thirty, and by
nine o'clock it Is to be aKsumcil that
every man will be in his place. I also
shall be there in my role as a partisan
of the league. Send a squad of men to
this address" (and here 1 handed him n
slip of paper bearing the Information)
"at nine o'clock precisely, and let them
arrest every individual on the prem
ises. They had better take me us well,
for appearances' sake. This will dis
arm any suspicion on their part that
there are informers in the camp."
"I see I see," he answered, quickly.
"An excellent plan, Mr. Harrington."
He then jotted down the various de
tails necessary, and I went about my
ordinary vocations until day should
wane and it would be time for me to
take my way to the anarchist club In
the role of a member of that terrible
The day passed quickly enough, ab
sorbed as I was with other interesting
matters, and shortly before eight I
went to my lodgings, und having im
timed my usual disguise, took my way
to the club. I entered.
Slowly the gloomy room filled with
the swarthy, evil-looking members, und
t length the meeting was complete
cave for one man, a Russian known as
Ivan Menskoff, lie was expected to re
turn that evening from Edinburgh,
whither ne had gone on business con
nected with the brotherhood. I'rrse
ly a slight murmur ran round the
and tha Russian strode Into tbeap
t. 711s brows were .uutracted'
and wltt lujfmscd.
Hastily looking from man to man until
his gue encountered mine, he pointed
at me and cried, vehemently:
"Seize that man whoenllshlmselt Ed
ward Withers. Secure him, and gng
him at once. He Is a spy nn accursed
spy in the employ of the Ilrltish govern
ment." 1 sprang up from my sent In order to
defend myself from the brutal arms
that closed round me, but the battle
was nn unequal one. Two minutes
later, bound, gngged, and helpless, I
was pinioned to the wall, the cords be
ing drnwn so tightly round my chrst
thnt I could icarce breathe.
Tho men slowly returned to their
seats, talking In excited whispers.
After a pause, Menskoff raised his hand
to proclaim silence, and said, In a rirrp,
"Comrades, I owe you nn explanation
of what has Just occurred. Know then
that during my visit to Edinburgh 1
have learned several things of vital Im
portance to the cause. The first Is that
this man Wither is n dangerous spy,
and that his acquaintance with us hns
been nn official trick which In n few
minutes we shall repay heavily."
He paused, and then continued:
"The second thing I have discovered
is this: that at nine o'clock to-nlglit
the house will be rnldrd, and etery man
of us present arrested."
A hoarse cry rose from the men, and I
could not repress a slight glance of
nmazemcnt. Menskoff understood my
expression, for he came towards me,
nnd striking me In the face said, wasp
Ishly: "Aha, then, my good Mr. Withers,
you do not know, evidently, that we
nlso have our spies among the police
force even as you have jours among
ourselves. Our own Informers arc as
watchful nnd an clever ns yours, nnd by
their agency has all this knowledge
come to me. What think you of it, my
friend; what think you of It, hey?"
Hp struck me again, very brutally.
The malignity of his glance and the
harsh, set faces of the other men showed
me only too plainly that I had small
mercy to expect now.
Slips of paper were handed round the
table, nnd eaeh member was directed to
Inscribe. thereon, what should be my
punishment. Then the klips were hand
ed to MenskofT, who glanced at them
with n gleam of satisfaction on his face.
"Edward Withers," he said, address
ing ine, after a pause, "the sentence
written by each member of this meet
ing: consists of one word, 'Death.' Make
ready: your time is short."
The anarchist went to the corner of
the room where he had deposited his
portmanteau. Hastily opening the
bag, he took from it a small bomb with
a clockwork apparatus attached, also
a tiny clock of common appearance.
Having deposited these on the table be
side, me, he addressed his comrades.
"My good brothers," he exclaimed,
talking in n quick, excJiable tone, "now

"You are admiring my little (lock, arc
you not?" he naked, grinning so wide

sight. "Well, It tuny interest you to

who shall have hnd nny use for It. .
I bought It In Edinburgh only (Ids
morning, little thinking that Its carver
would end so soon."
Then, tapping the timepiece gently,
he exclaimed; "Farewell, little clock.
Do thy work well nnd send this, cur to
his reward. Mr. Withers, good-night.
I wish you a pleasant journey to the
new country you arc about to tlslt.
With an Ironical bow he glided from
the room, shutting nnd locking the
door after him. When he hnd rt' tired,
I shut my eyes nnd tried to think..

For the first ten minutes the agony ol
waiting wns softened somewhat by the
hope that something might happen tc

Obedience to this man seemed inevit
able. One by one, the whole crowd rose
and slowly left the house, each man
giving me a look of hatred as he went.
I perfectly understood Menskoft's
design In resolving to destroy me by
means of the bomb Instead of taking up
his revolver and dispatching me then
and there. The explosion would bring
the house to the ground, damage ad
joining property, and would be in every
way the best "advertisement" that the
cause could obtain, whilst at the same
time all other informers would tremble
when they learned the horrible fate of
one of their body. Verily, n fiend's de
vice, nnd worthy of him who devised it.
When the last footsteps of the re
treating men had died away, the nr.
nrchlst leaned over tho table where the
deadly apparatus was plnccd and slo'v
ly adjusted It. Then turning to me, he
exclaimed, with n malignant laugh
which was ns brutul as a blow:
"Sec here, my good friend, see here.
I hate left the bomb and the, clock in
such a position that you are bound to
sec both, nnd as the hand of the clock

It was impossible for me to convey
my desire to know, fori could not mote
my head or open my lips. However,
Menskoff appeurcd to consider an an
swer superfluous, for, after a minute's
Interval, he laughed again and cried:
"I hate set it to explode at ten min

Simply because, good Mr. Withers, It
will add (enfold to your torture to re

that ten minutes would mean life, and
the absence of them death. ... ah,

man must be In my place to thoroughly
