CHAPTER XVI. Continued.
"Get your watch," advised Cabrielle,
"and your pins and things. I've got
all mine In this chamois bag, except
the gold beads; they wouldn't go, so
I'll just carry them. I'm not afraid,
but I would rather have my things
with me, somehow."
I collected my small store of val
uables, and we formed a procession
of three, and ventured downstairs,
walking softly, as though afraid to dis
turb some one.
With every step our confidence re
turned. We tried the front door and
found it closed and bolted; the win
dows In the hall and living room were
securely fastened: the dining room
nlso appeared impregnable; and when
we found the door to the safe tightly
closed, I was beyond measure relieved,
and almost ready to laugh at my sus
picions. In the kitchen we found the cellar
fpor open, and dt bated whether we
"should look it lmdtFuB"pTeve"nTMary
Anne's return, or wait and greet her
Ifl disapproving array.
"Let us listen," suggested Oabrielle,
and sat down upon the top step to
carry out her suggestion.
Then occurred the accident to which
I referred in the very beginning. She
held her gold beads In her hand, and
somehow managed to break the cntch
and away they went. We could hear
ti.em rolling down Into the cellar step
by step, and Oabrielle was at first
motionless with surprise, then as us
ual prepared for immediate action.
"I'm going after them," she an
nounced, literally rising to the oc
casion. "Down there?" shuddered Klizabeth.
"Oh, no! Walt till morning."
"1 spent every cent of Cousin Lucy's
check 00 those brails,'' said Oabrielle,
folding her kimono about her and pre
paring to descend, "and I'm going to
pick them up right away. Wait till
morning, indeed: You might suppose
they were pebbles."
We sighed apprehensively, but pre
pared to follow our Intrepid friend,
feeling that we must share whatever
fate was in store for her, as well as
help collect her property. So we went
carefully down the steps, holding our
candles well before us.
Those miserable beads had roiled
to the most remole places, of course,
and "wo got so Interested In looking
for them we almost forgot to be
Suddenly, however, Klizabeth gave
a stilled scream, which was more of a
gasp, after all, and shrank hack
against the wall.
"There is some one in here," she
whispered. "I know it."
"How do you know?"
Oabrielle tried to speak boldly, but
the hand which held the cnndle shook
until a little shower of melted wax
fell upon the floor.
"I was feeling under the steps,"
Klizabeth found articulation difficult
"when 1 touched 'hair human hair."
We gaze .1 at one aunt her In abject
terror, unable for the moment to
speak or move; then Klizabeth, whose
nerves were completely uiistrun-',
swayed suddenly ua though she were
going to faint.
"I'm afraid," ine gasped "awfully
afraid. It was hair, and oh, dear!
what shall we do?"
She began to iob In hopeless kind
of way, In which 1 felt much inclined
to join, when 1 heard a suppressed ex
clamation, followed by a scrambling
sound and the simultaneous Hash of
"two riark"-hrrrtertrv -a-a-a man advanced
from the back of the cellar, while an
other appeared from beneuth the
Instinctively we drew close together,
and when we afterward compared
notes found we hnd each tried to
cream bu1 could not.
"Don't be frightened," said a voice
which sounded strangely familial ;
"it's only us, Hlnke and I."
The gltls stared with mingled relief
and amazement, lint 1 looked the other
way, for 1 felt a curious sensation of
personal disgrace, and as though I
could not boar to meet their eyes.
"nut." said Klizabeth, at last
"It is odd, Isn't it?" said Mr. Iten
nett, with laugh he tried hard to
make natural. "I'm I'm most awful

We did not want you to know any

He paused abruptly, coiiscIoub that

to his companion.
"Toll them, llliike." ho commanded.
"ThlR thing has got to bo explained,
and. after all, it's your business, not
"Yes," said Oabrielle, In her most
high and mighty voice; "It does seem
to need explaining."
I admired her very much just then,
for It is not every woman who can
look dignified and Imposing when M

Mr. Hlnke cast nn anxious glance to

Oabrielle, but with rather a forlorn
quaver In her voice instead of the note
of stern Interrogation she had in
tended. "It's all right," said Oordon Hen
net t. "On my honor. Miss Oabrielle,
It's all right."
I had not intended to speak; the
words escaped before I was aware of
It. He turned and looked at mo stead
ily, and again I Involuntarily averted

"Now," said Mr. Hlnke, returning;
"If you will kindly come upstairs, I
am ready to explain, but I fear I must

We went up to the living room,
Klizabeth and I very conscious of our
dishabille and Inclined to shrink into
dark coiners, Oabrielle stalking ma
jesticnlly on In front with disgust and
disapproval written in capital letters
across her back, and Indignation hang
ing from her shoulder blades.
"Well?" she said, coldly, after a mo
"First," said Mr. fllake, with a note
of calm authority In his voice, "I must
ask you to listen to my story without
Interruptions, and to accept for the
time being any statements I may
make. Later I shall be In a position
to prove them."
"1 hope bo," murmured Gabrlelle,
Mr. lllake handed her a chair with
the same pnreful courtesy which had
hitherto marked his Intercourse with
us, and waited until she was seated be
fore saying anything more. Oabrielle
sat rigidly upright, but suddenly re
membered that her feet, Incased In
bedroom slippers, were minus stock
ings, anil therefore drew them quickly
under the folds of bar kimono, which
hasty act wus rather ri freshing, since
It proved her but mortal, after all.
"I do not suppose," be hagan. in the
calm, level tone so Irritating when
one's excitement Is at fever heat, "you

"I don't believe It."
It was Klizabeth who spoke, and her
words were freighted with sincere cou
victlon. "1 did not expect you to. It is true,
nevertheless. This woman Is known
as Nell Sitnnis. and her career has
been marvelous. For some years she

thoughtfully before resuming his

the man's video, cot tain Inflections of BBJ
v lilch had haunted tne with their fa- JBJ

across at Oordon Bennett, only to find jHJ
him watching me intently, an anxious BBa

lief was mingled with sympathy I BBJ
wondered If he knew what 1 had been BBl

as a buffer to avert suspicion. Your WH

more to come which he hardly knew BB

him. starting from her chair and stand BB
in--, tall and erect before him. BBJ
"And do you expect us to believe BB

quired slowly. HJ
