Alone, O'Rourke seated himself on
the edge of the fountain and consid

"'Tis fate," he concluded soberly, at
jlength. "And 'tis hard upon eleven
now. They will not dare to run that

Deliberately he stripped off rags and

breath of the khamsin, and there was

house, and as O'Rourke rose to folloR

over the floor of earth. Then, while
O'Rourke gathered himself together,
exultation in his heart, and the fore
taste of revenge sweet in his mouth,
two cloaked figures scuffled into the
courtyard, breathing hard beneath
their burdens of smuggled drug.
Hole promptly dufnped his share of
the load down upon the bench and
swung upon Danny. "Where's Nic

ugly a mood as he could muster.
"Where is 'e? Stop standin' there

In the clear, bright starlight the pis

sharply, "save and except to put your

"Save your breath, ye whelp!"
O'Roprke counseled him curtly. "Ye'll
have need of it before I'm done with

The servant set about his task with
alacrity; it is safe to say that he left
not so much as a match in the pocket
of either. While he was about it,
Hole, with his eyes steadily fixed upon
the unwavering muzzles of O'Rourke's
revolvers, managed to master his emo

"What are you going to do with

O'Rourke grimly. "Have ye found it,
Danny backed away from Hole,
whom he had searched after Denni

"I can't look at this moment, Danny.
[s it a leather bag with something
hiard inside, the size of a hen's egg, or

"The very same, yer honor."
"Very well," O'Rourke suppressed
the tremble of relief in his voice.
"Put it in your~ pocket, Danny-the
very bottom of your pocket Did ye
ftnd a gun on either of them?"
"One on each, sor."
"Then cover them, Danny."
For himself O'Rourke put down his
pistols and calmly stripped off his
coat, rolling up his sleeves.
"Hole," he said, tersely, "don't
move. If ye do, Danny will puncture
ye. Your turn comes last Denni
