or whatever it was, that had resulted

Amber cared nothing for It.
Such, in short, had been his frame
of mind up to eight o'clock of the
previous evening. At that hour he had
made a discovery which had diverted
the entire trend of his thought.
Dofrgott, ever a poor sailor, bad

Tho envelope he had caused to be con

took the missive.
"An Eurasian boy left It for you
half an hour ago," said the clerk.
"Thank you," returned Amber, con
trolling himself sufficiently 10 wait,
until he should be conducted to hid
room before opening the note.
It was not, he observed later, super
scribed in a femtntna band. Could it
be from Qualn's friend Labertouche?
bo else? . . . Amber lifted his
shoulders resignedly. "I wish Quain

said ungratefuily; "I can take care of

In tho face of Poggotfa unbending

Once away from the Great Eastern

He stopped In front of a building

And he entered.
