"A dead city, Mr. Amber, not far
awey originally the capital cf Khac

the. Eortb, somewhere. Old Kao Rut
tou, founder of the old dynasty, got
tired of the place and caused 11 to be
depopulated, building Kuttarpur ia Its
fitsad I believe, to commemorate
some Tictory or other. That sort of
thing used to be quite the fashioc m
India, before we came." Raikes fell
back, giving Amber precedence as
they entered the Residency. -By the
way, remind me, tf you think of It,
Colonel I'arrell, to get after the tele
graph clerk tomorrow. There's a new
man la charge a Bengali babu and
I presume he's about as worthless as
the run of bis kind."
Amber made a careful cote of this
Information; he was curious about
Ia the drawing room Raikes and
Farrell Impressed Clarkson for three
handed bridge. Sophia did cot care
to p!ay and' Amber was Ignorant of
the game a defect In his social edu
cation which he found no cause to re
gret, since it left him In undisputed
attendance upon the girl.
She tad seated herself at a warped
and discouraged piano, for which
Raikes had already apologized; It was,
he said, a legacy from a former Resi
dent. For years its yellow keys bad
cot known a woman's touch such as
that -to which they cow responded
with thin, cracked voices; the girl's
one, slender flngf-rs wrung from them
a plaintive, pathetic parody of melody.
Amber stood over ber with his arms
folded on the top of the Instrument,
comfortably unconscious that his rose
waa copied from any number of sent!
mental'photogTavurts and "art photo
graphs." His temper was sentimental
enough, for that matter; the woman
was very sweet and beautiful la bis
syes as he sat with her white, round
arms flashing over the keyboard, her
bead bowed and ber face a little
averted, the loxig laxhes low upon her
cheeks and tremulous with a fathom
less emotion. U was Ma thought that
hl time was momentarily becoming
shorter, and that Just now, more than
ever, she was very disfast from his
arms, something Inaccessible, too rare
and de'icata and flae for the rude
possession of him who sighed for bis
Abruptly she brought both hands
down upon the keys, educing a Jan
gled, startled crash from the tortured
wires, and swingling round, glanced
hp at Amber with quaint njlrth trem
bling behind the vt-ll of moifiure la
her misty eyes.

chair, and Instinctively feeling far the
pistol that was with bis traveling
things, upstairs In the Residency.
The native, reassured him with ft
swift, obsequious gesture. "Pardon,

"I am he. What do you want with
"It Is only this, that I bar been
commissioned to tear to you, tahib."
The man fumbled hurriedly In the
folds of bis surtout. darting quick
glances of apprehension round the
garden. Amber looked him over a
closely as be could in the dim light,
but found bim wholly a stranger
merely ft low-caste Hindu, counterpart
of a million others to be encountered
daily In the highways and bazars of
India. The Virginian' . rising fcope

"Nay, ft name that la unspoken

duced a su.all, thin, fiat package and
