hand, he signed for Ryanne to get into
the carriage. Ryanne did so, relieved.
Hie was certain that he could bring
Mahomed round to a reasonable view
of the affair. He was even willing to
give him a little money. The three
Arabs climbed in beside him, and the
journey to the hostelry was made
without talk. Ryanne pretended to be
vastly interested in the turmoil
through which the carriage rolled, nbw
swiftly, now hesitant, now at a stand
still, and again tortuously: Once Ma

his money; and once Ryanne, in the

The English-Bar was not the most
inviting place. Sober. Ryanne had
never darkened its doors. The odor
of garlic prevailed over the lesser
smells of bad cooking. It was lighted
only from the street, by two windows
and a door that swung open all the
days in the year. The windows were
generally half obscured by bills an

bouts and the lithographs of cheap
theaters. The walls were decorated

few iron-topped tables littered both

men of a dozen nationalfties, sipping
coffee, drinking beer, or solemnly
watching the water-bubbles in their
Sheesbas. or pipes.
A curious phase of this class of un
der-world is that no one Is curious.
Strangers are never questioned except
when they invite attention, which they
seldom do. So, when Ryanne and his
quasi-companions entered, there wasn't
the slightest agitation. A blowsy bar
maid stood behind the bar, polishing
the copper spigots. Ryanne threw her
a greeting, to which she responded
with a smirk that once upon a time
had been a smile. He. being master
of ceremonies, selected a table in the
corner. The four sat down, and Ryanne
plunged intrepidly into the business

directed his effort. HIlf a dozen times,

been the guile and trickery leading
up to it. He had been bested at his
own game, duplicity, and that irked
him. Death, he. as his kind, looked
upon with Oriental passivity. Ah,
well! The game \as to have a aec

it In strictly O)riental ways.
"How much did he gi\e you for It?"
The expression upon ityanne's face
would have deceived any one but Ma

"Why, that's the whole trouble. All
my trouble, all the hard work, and
not a plaster, not a pliaster! Can't you
understand, I had to do it?"
"Is he going to sell it?"
"Sell it? Not he! He's a collector,
and crazy over the thing."
Mahomed nodded. He knew some
thing of the habits of collectors. "Is

Ryanne began to believe that the
game was going along famously; Ma
homed was sure of it.
"He is George P. A. Jones, of Morti

York. Money no object."
Though his face did not show it, Ma
homed was singularly depressed by
this news. If this man Jones had
money, of what use was his little pack
et of notes?
"I must have that rug, effendi.
There are two reasons; it is holy, and
the loss of It means my head."
"Good riddance!" thought Ryanne, a
sympathetic look upon his face.
"What have you to suggest in the
way of a plan?" asked Mahomed.
Ryanne felt a tingle of Jubilation.
He saw nothing but plain-sailing into
port. But Mahomed had arranged to
guide his craft into the whirlpool. Un
to himself he kept up a ceaseless re

"Mr. Jones, then. shall be here

beckoning the barmaid. "What will
Mahomed shook his head. His two
companions, gathering the signilcance
of the gesture. likewise declined.
"A smoke, then?"
A smiling negative.
"Beware of the Greek bearing gifts,"
laughed Ryanne. "All right, You
won't mind if I have a beer to the suc
cess of the venture?"
Ryanne drank the lukewarm bev
erage, while Mahomed toyed with his
turquoise ring, that sacred badge of an
honorable pilgrimage to Holy Mecca.
"The young lady, effend; she was
very pretty. Your sister?" casually in.
"Oh, no. She is a young lady I met
at the hotel the othe r day."
The liar! thought the Moslem, as he
recalled the light in Ryanne's eyes
and the tenderness of his smiles. Ap
parently, however, Mahomed lost in
terest directly. "At nine o'clock to
night, then, this collector will arrive
to become my guest?"
"By hook or crook." was the an
swer. "IlI have him here. Cash upon
delivery, as they say."
"Cash upon delivery." Mahomed re
peated, the phrase being familiar to
"Frankly, I want this man out of the
way for a while."
"Yes. I want a little revenge for the
way he has treated me."
"So it is revenge?" softly. Traitor6

"Good. I'm off, then. Take him to

keep an eye out for the Shah Abbas in

The affair had gone so smoothly
that Ryanne's usual keenness fell be

To leave behind the blue skies and

pair of trousers dangling from his
hand. Pshaw! Why not admit it
frankly and honestly? Wherever Fol

was the delectable country. He
hadn't thought to ask her when she
