Servan laughed. "Show me your
badge of authority."
The man fumbled in his upper
pocket, hoping against hope that the
muzzle of the revolver would waver.
"You're an ordinary thief," declared
the Russian; "and as such I shall
instantly hand you over to the hotel
authorities unless you tell me exactly
who and what you are."
The man remained dumb. He hung
between the devil and the deep sea.
If he told the truth the organization
would soon learn thestruth; If he kept
still he would be lodged in jail, per
haps indefinitely, for he hadn't a sav
ory police record. Presently his
nerve gave way in face of the steady
eye and hand, and he confessed the
why and wherefore he had sought the
keyhole of Servan's room.
"We are after this butler. Where
'ever he goes we follow."
"Well, you've wasted your time, my
man. - All I am here for Is to take
over some property Mr. Hargreave
left in France for sale. I know
nothing about your private feuds.
Now, get out. But keep out of my
way; I am not a peaceful man."
The spy tumbled- out as he had
tumbled in, by an act of gravity; and
Servan was alone. He spent two
days in comparative idleness. Then
things began to wake up.
. . * * * * *
For a long time the leather box
across which .was inscribed "Stanley
Hargreave' lay in peace undisturbed.
A busy spider had woven a trap
across the handle to the quaint lock.
The box was still badly stained from
its. immersion in the salt water. At
a certain time it was quietly with

what he desired: that the Russian

and that It was going to be difficult
to hand the documents to him. The
.spy entered a drug store and tele
phoned. .Jim waited outside. When
the man came out he strolled up the
street and entered the nearest saloon.
Jim's work was done..
It was Braine's lieutenant, however,
who took the news to Braine.
"We have succeeded."
"Good!" said Braine.
"He will go to the opera. He will
have a box. Doubtless they have ar
ranged to deliver the papers there."
"And the next thing is to get the
number of his box." This Braine had
no difficulty in doing. "So that's all

The -usual brilliant crowd -began to
pour into the opera. Braine took his
stand by the entrance. He waited a
long time, but his patience was re
warded. A limousine drove up and
out of the door came his man, who
looked about with casual interest. He
dismissed ther limousine, which
wheeled slowly around the corner
where it could be conveniently parked.
Then Servan entered the dpera.
Braine hurried around to the limou
sine. The lights, save those demand
ed by traffic regulations, were out
The chauffeur was huddled in his seat.
"My man," said Braine, "would you
like to make some money?"
"How much?" listlessly. The voice
"Good night and good morning!"
"Now you've got me interested.
What kind of a joy ride do you want?"
"No Joy ride. Listen."
-Briefly the conspirator outlined his
needs, and finally the chauffeur
nodded. Five twenties were pressed
into his hand and he curled up in his

next to his sat a handsomely gowned
young woman. He threw her an Idle
glance, which was repaid In kind.
Iater, Braine came in and sat down
"Everything looks like plain sail
ing," he whispered.
Olga shrugged slightly.
During the intermission between the
first and second acts, Servan took the
rear chair of his box, near the cur
tains. Braine, watching with the eyes
of a lynx, suddenly observed the cur
tains stirring. A hand was thrust
through. In that hand was a packet of
papers. With seeming indifference

for him, due to the apparent treachery
of the chauffeur. Servan fought val

One of the men succeeded in getting
the documents from Servan's pocket.
"Done, my boy!" cried the victor.
"Give him a crack on the coco and
we'll beat it."
"Just a minute, gentlemen!" said a
voice from the seat at the side of the
chauffeur. "I'll take those papers!"
And the owner of the voice, backed by
a cold, sinister-looking automatic,
reached in and confiscated the spoils
of war. "And I shouldn't make any
attempt to slip out by the side door."
"Thanks, my friend," said Servan,
shaking himself free from his captors.

said the captain, leveling a finger at

"If it is necessary."
"It may be against Otto's pal. I
don't know him."
And Jones and Norton and Servan
trooped out of the station.
At last Jones and the reporter en
tered a cheap restaurant and ordered
coffee and toast.
"You're a wonderful man, Jones,
even if you are an Englishman," said
Jim as he called for the check.
"English? What makes you think
I am English?" asked Jones with a cu
rious glitter in his eyes.
"I'll tell you on the night we put the
rollers under Braine and company?'
Jones stared long and intently at
his young partner. Whatdld he really
A Night of Adventure.
The federal government agreed to
say nothing, to put no obstacles in the
way of the Russian agent, provided he
could abduct his trio without serious
ly clashing with the New York police
authorities. It was a recognized fact
that the local police force wanted the
newspaper glory which would attend
the crushing of the Black Hundred.
It would be an exploit. But their glory
was nil; nor did Servan take his trio
back with him to Russia.
Many strange things happened that
night, the night cf the final adven
Florence sat in her room reading.
The book was "Oliver Twist," not the
pleasantest sort of book to read uzn
der the existing circumstances. Sev

where Fagin overheard Nancy's con
fession-she fancied she heard doors
closing softly, but credited It to her

miliar to most of us; the need of ap

So she rang the bell for her maid,
intending to ask her to bring up some
apples. She turned to her reading,
presently to break off and strike the
bell again. Where was that maid? She

down the book and began to investi

From whence was the danger to come
this time? Where was Jones? Why
did he not return as he had promised? 1
It was long past the hour when he
said he would be ack.
She went into the library and picked
up the telephone. She was told that
Mr. Norton was out on an assignment,
but that he would be notified the mo
ment he returned. She opened a draw- 1
er in the desk. She touched the au- 1
tomatic, but did not take it up. She
left the drawer open, however.
Earlier, at the newspaper office that
night, Jim went into the managing ed
itor's office and laid a bulky manu
script on that gentleman's desk.
"Is this it?"
"It Is," said Jim.
"You have captured them?"
"No; but there is a net about them
from which not one shail escape.

The editor riffied the pages.
"A hundred and twelve pages, 300
words to the page; man it's a novel!"
"It'll read like one."
"Sit down for a moment and let me
skim through the first story."
At the end of ten minutes the editor
laid down the copy. He opened a draw
er and took out two envelopes. The
blue one he tore up and dropped into
the waste basket. Norton understood
and smiled. They had meant to dis
charge him if he fell down. The other
-envelope was a fat one.
"Open it," said the editor, smiling a
little to himself.
This envelope contained a check for
$2,500, two round-trip first-class tickets
to Liverpool, together with innumer
able continental tickets such as are
issued to tourists.
"Why two?" asked Jim, innocently.
"Forget it, my boy, forget -it.: You
ought to know that in this o6ice we
don't employ blind men. The whole
staff is on. There you are, a fat check
and three months' vacation. Go and
get married; and i you return before
the three months are up I'll fire you
myself on general principles."
Jim laughed happily and the two
men shook hands. .Then Jim went
forth to complete the big assignment.
Five minutes later Florence called him
up to learn that he had gone.
'What should F. do? Jones had
told her to stay in the house and not
to leave it. But where was he? Why

Susan was in the hospital.

turned Into the street and walked
noiselessly toward the Hargreave
place- He passed a man leaning
against a lamppost, but he never
turned to look at him.
This man, however, threw away his
cigar and hot-footed it to the nearest
pay station. He knew in his soul that
he had just seen the man for whom
they had been hunting all these weary
but strenuous weeks-Stanley Har
greave in the flesh! Half an hour
after his telephone message the chief
of the Black Hundred and many lesser
lights were on their way to the house
of mystery. Had they but known!
Now, the man who had created this
tremendous agitation went serenely
on. He proceeded directly and fear
lessly to the front door, produced a
latchkey and entered. He passed
through the hall and reception room
to the library and paused on the
threshold dramatically. Florence
stepped back with a sharp cry of
alarm. She had heard the hall door
open and close and had taken It for
granted that Jones had entered.
There was a tableau of short dura
"Don't you know me?" asked the
stranger in a singularly pleasant voice.
Florence had been imposed upon
too many times. She shook her head
deantly, though her knees shook so
that she was certain that the least
touch would send her over.
"I am your father, child!"
Florence slipped unsteadily behind
the desk and seized the revolver which
lay in the drawer. The man by the
curtains smiled sadly. It was a smile
that caused Florence to waver a bit.
Still she extended her arm.
"You do not believe me T' said the
man, advancing slowly.
"No. I have been deceived too many
