THE ROCK ISEAND ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1911.

'R. GRATMAN on tbe morning
alter too events already de
scribed waited long at the
breakfast table, and at last.
growing - impatient, he sent to his
daughter's room. It -was empty! So
too servant reported.
"Eraptyr Mr. Grayman exclaimed.
"What do yon mean?"
M1sb Helen Is not there, and her
bed has not been occupied. We can
find no trace of her or of Swan."
Mr. Grayman could not beliere his
ears. He was of n choleric tempera
ment, except In business.
"Ton idiot!" he said, brushing the
girl aside. "I'll go myself and see."
He ascended to his daughter's apart
ment. In a few minutes be bd con
vinced himself of the truth ef the in
credible report. Miss Grayman was
not to be found, and neither her bed
nor Susan's had been disturbed. He
was absolutely stunned. Hi daugh
ter, although of a romantic disposi
tion, was most regular in her habits,
and she bud seldom spent a night out
of the bouse when he was in it He
treasured her as the apple of his eye.
She formed the only bond between him
and the world of sentiment. He nev
er suffered her to be Ions out of his
sight. In summer they went together
to one of bla country places, or to the
mountains, or the seaside, or some
times to Europe. That she should van
ish out of his own bouse, from under
his very eyes, was a thing beyond all
possibility of belief. It simply could
not be so. And yet it was so.
After the first half paralyzing shock
produced by this tremendous fact Mr.
Grayman became angry. He abused
the servants who flocked, wondering,
around Miss Gray man's door. When
dH)EK3T.ID THAT THIS IS PROFOUND
the housekeeper appeared, bustling to
the rescue with an iinngiuary expla
nation of the disappearance half ut
tered on her lips, he lost all patience
and chased her downstairs. Mr. Gray
man, the great billionaire, noted for
his coolness and his nerve, had almost
gone mad. He had met his fir-.-t check
in thirty years and in a form that be
could not endure.
The occurrence was so unprecedent
ed that he could not think connectedly
about It or about what to do. The
butler was more clear headed than his
"I think It will be necessary to send
for the police, sir," he suggested.
The police!" cried Mr. Grayman.
"What bare they got to do with It?
What do the police know about my
"But but, sir, stammered the man,
"she may she may have been carried
"Carried off! Who would carry ber
off, you fool? Who could carry her
"I don't know, sir. Cat she wouldn't
hare gone of herself, would she, sir?"
At this one of the maids. In whose
hard, practical brain the butler's re
mark had struck the spark of an idea.
faid in an undertone to a companion:
"Could It have been that Lord Darn
ley? lie was fclwavs hanging around
Mr. Grayman's ear caught the words.
Now. this was something which might i
have been expected to anger him the I
suggestion that his daughter would
elope. But instead It simply shocked
bis mind back into a normal state. In
an instant he had become matter of
himself and of the situation.
"Go about your duties," be said quiet
ly in his ordinary tones. "We are mak
ing trouble about nothing. I had real
ly forgotten what my daughter told
me last night. I have been so over
pressed with business that it escaped
me. She has not disappeared. I know
where she is- It was only my forget
fuluess. Think no more about it."
This was again the William Gray
man who knew bow to make billions.
In a flash be bad reached bis decision.
If bis daughter bad run away at the
Instigation of one of ber suitors a
thlog he did not yet believe it was
bsolateJy essential that the tact should
.be suppressed, at least until ha knew
all the cimi instances. The idea of a
'.forcible abduction did not occur fc
him. It would have appeared to his
mind too absurd to be entertalned.
Stlll. he felt that he needed the aid
of the police, as the butler had suggest-
ed. but It must be secret aid. It must
never be known least of all to bis
servants. He, of course, bad the means
of securing secrecy, at least as far as
secreey is humanly possible, for money
can ehat as well as open all mouths.
A million dollars would be a bagatelle
to WEliam Grayman If H guarded his
family from scandal.
His mind was made up as to the ac
tion tat be should take.' In his ordi
nary manner, at his usual hour, he
summoned his wits. I'.efore leaving
tbe bouse be called for the house
keeper. "I was a little mde In my excite
ment this morning." he said to her,
"and It was all so abUTd. It was due
to my forgetf illness. Inspired by Intense
application to business. My daughter
may be absent some time. She went
away quietly with Susan last night to
stay with 6ome friends out of town,
but ber absences are so infrequent and
I am so accustomed to seeing her at
the breakfast table that the fact really
slipped my mind In tbe midst of so
many cares, and I made a useless
scene, which I regret."
Graymnn was almost a match for
Captain Alfonso Payton In the perfec
tion of his dissimulation, and tbe
housekeeper solemnly accepted bis
Mr. Grayman rode to his office and
immediately summoned Folice Com
missioner Urainan by telephone. That
official did not think It beneath his
dignity instantly to answer a call to
the office of William Grayman. a call
that came from the billionaire himself.
When the commissioner arrived
Grayman took him Into his innermost
i sanctum and immediately astonished
him beyond measure.
"Commissioner." he said, "my daugn
ter disappeared Inst nipbt from my
bouse, and I want you to find out whaj
has become of her."
The commissioner caught his breath.
"Your daughter! Disappeared!" he
"Stop a moment!" said Grayman.
"Understand that this is a profound
secret and must remain so. I will
make It worth your while to shut the
mouth of every detective that you em
ploy. No questions must be asked of
the servants that could possibly lead
them to suspect that au inquiry is on
foot They think that my daughter
has gone away on a visit. You can
draw ou me for any amount at any
time until the girl Is found. Now,
And Grayman proceeded to tell the
6tory of the morning. When he had
finished he asked in his blunt, auto
"Now. tell me what you will do.
What Is your plan?"
The commissioner begged for a little
time to think it over.
"I can have no plan yet" he said,
"but I'll find one. With your permis
sion I'll send a confidential man to
your house and get a basis for further
"Very well." said Grayman; "let It be
done. Eut remember my restriction.
Not a word must escape anywhere
not a single word or hint"
The chief promised the most abso
lute secrecy and. with great perturba
tion of mind, returned in all haste to
When Mr. Grayman was left alone
his self command relaxed. His daugh
ter was dearer to hiir. thau his for
tune. He could not drive the agoniz
ing thought of her stransre disappear
ance from bis mind. It unmanned
him. He refused all callers, pretend
ing to be too busy to se any one. It
was the most uncomfortable morning
he had ever spent.
Toward noon the wireless telephone
bell in his sanctum rang sharply. Only
his exclusive Intimates ever called him
up here. The apparatus was reserv
ed for the secrets of high finance se
crets that could be intrusted only to
soundless ether. He put the receiver
to bis ear.
"Hello!" came a voice that te did
not recognize. "Reply undirected."
This meant that Grayman should re
spond with a "hello" sent out Ly un
directed waves, radiating on all sides,
so that they would n?acb tbe original
speaker whatever his location might
be. This, as those who are familiar
with the early history of wireless teleg
raphy know, was at first the only way
In which messages could be sent, and
maDy years were speDt In fruitless ef
forts to direct them to definite places
and thus prevent them from being
picked up by Tom. Dick or narry at
all points of the compass. Fortunately
all that, even at the time of which I
am writing, had been completely mas
tered, although the original method
was stil occasionally employed for
special purposes, as In the present
case. So complete, indeed, was the
solution of the problem that wireless
telegraph and telephone messages bad
already become as exclusive as by the
ancient telegraph system.. Each sub
scriber, as at the present day. bad his
syntonised Instrument, duly numbered,
which responded only to a limited set
of waves, which might be compared
with the characteristic spectral lines
of a chemical substance, no confusion
being possible. At need any receiver
can be thrown open to take undirected
and onsyntonized messages.
.Accordingly Mr. Grayman. although
greatly surprised that any of bis con
fidential correspondents should sum
mou him thus, replied in the manner
" "Hello! What do ytro want?
"William Grayman T came the re
sponse, interrogatively inflected.
"Himself In person?"
"Very good. In the air."
This last phrase may also need a
word of explanation. It is used to In-,
dicate that the interlocutor is afloat
and that he either does not know or
does not take the trouble to designate
his position In the atmosphere by ref
erence to some known point on the
"Who is It? demanded Mr. Gray
"Captain Alfonso Payton."
"Who? I don't know such4 a person.
Who are you? I can't bother"
"I am afraid. Mr. Grayman." inter
rupted the voice, "that you confine
your attention a little too exclusively
to the financial columns of the news
papers if you don't recognize my name
Yet I mieht well figure In-tbem also.
My transactions are frequently large
enough, as you are going to find out
Most people know me as the sky pi
rate." "What nonsense Is this?" exclaimed
Mr. Grayman Impatiently. "How have
"No nonsense at all. Mr. Grayman."
the voice again interrupted, "and as
for daring, listen. I took your daugh
ter Helen from your house last night,
and she, with her maid Susan, are here
on my aero, the Chameleon."
Graycmn's heart nearly stopped beat
ing. "What? What is that?" he exclaimed.
"I have your daughter In my cus
tody," the voice responded with dis
tinct deliberation. "She is in no dan
ger of any kind and will be In none
provided that you accede promptly to
the terms which I am going to give
you. If you do not you will never see
There was a cold, self confident, con
vincing tone to the voice that sent a
shiver through the billionaire's nerves
He wiped the cold sweat from his
brow with one band, while with the
other he clung to the receiver and
pressed it to his ear. The strange voice
went on. for he was incapable for the
moment of interruption or reply:
"If yon meet my demand she will
be restored to you without publicity
and without Injury. You are the rich
est man in the world, they say. You
best know how you have acquired
your riches, but that is no affair of
mine. 1 have, however, pressing need
of a part of your plunder. My terms
"What infernal trick are yon trying
on me?" exclaimed Mr. Grayman. los
ing his temper and at the same time
recovering his nerve and tbe Incre
dulity natural to a man In such circum
stances. "Who are you anyway? I'll
bear no more of this!
"It must lie that some crank bas
found out my number." said tbe bil
lionaire to himself. "I must see tbe
company about this."
He was about to drop the receiver
when the voice began again:
"If you want to see your daughter
again. Mr. Grayman. you'll not try to
cut off this conversation. If yon still
don't know me ask any newspaper
man or almost any man in the street
who Alfonso Payton is and what he
does when be make, a good capture
and gets no response to a fair offer.
I repeat that I hare yonr daughter.
I took ber from the window of her
room with my aero last night. I will
release her for the sum that I have
Darned. Ten million dollars will leave
hardly a perceptible vacancy In your
pocket, but that which will happen to
your daughter If you fall to pay will
pickle your heart In vitriol. I know
you have a heart for her."
Mr. Grayman's anger vanished again
and a cold fear began to take Its
place. His incredulity vanished also.
His daughter was gone, and this
might really te the explanation of her
disappearance. He suddenly remem
tiered to have beard of Payton and
his evil doings. He recalled the name
cf the Chameleon also.
The voice began agaiu. and Mr.
Grayman could but listen:
"I beg you. for your own and your
daughter's sake, not to make the mis
take of thinking that this is a trick.
What I am telliDg you is the exact
truth. I hold the girl, and I have all
the trumps io mv hand. Don't think
of the police. They can't help you
No one ever succeeded in running me
down, and no one ever wilL Now give
me your answer. Will you deal with
me for tbe life and honor of your
daughter or will you not? Yes or no.
If yes. I will tell you how to proceed.
If no. I shall lose no time in making
Helen wish that she bad had a father
who loved her."
During all of this extraordinary con
versation Payton, in tbe cabin of the
Chameleon, with Helen only a few feet
away, was sending bis messages "di
rected," and consequently his words
were beard only by Mr. Grayman, but
the tatter's replies were "undirected"
and might have been heard by a hun
dred persons in a hundred different
places, although, of course, they would
have possessed no significance.
As Grayman recalled what be bad
heard and read of i-ayton a horrible
sensation came over bim. Helen must
be rescued at once! He must tempo
rize with this villain and get the better
of him when be could. What harm to
promise tbe ten millions? In bis heart he
felt that he would willingly give them
to have his daughter once more In bis
arms. In the turmoil of his spirit he
lost a whole minute. Suddenly a sharp
ring came, and tbe voice, very grave,
"Come! No fooling, Mr. Grayman. I
have your daughter right here In my
bands. No power under God can save
ber if you do not answer me instantly."
"I dare not say "io, thought tbe
billionaire, "for all this may be true.
I'll answer "yes,' and then we shall
Accordingly be spoke tbe word.
"I congratulate you on yonr good
sense, Mr. Grayman," came the Instant
response, "and oa your fatherly affec
tion. Have no fear now. Helen shall
not be harmed unless you attempt
treachery. Remember that! Now I'll
tell you bow to proceed. In two days
go to tbe bluff overlooking tbe Mo
hawk river, at Tribes Hill. New York.
Ill be there, and we win arrange for
the payment of the money and the
simultaneous delivery of tbe girl at an
other place You may come armed
if you like, but you must have no
friends on tbe ground, and you must
not come in an aero. We will meet
alone, man to man. and I pledge you
my word, which I have never broken,
that no personal injury will be offered
to you. I have your daughter, which
is all I need. I shall not gain, but
lose, by offering any violence to you.
Simply remember that there must be
no treachery. Goodby."
Mr. Grayman called out, "Where are
you?" But this time there was no
response. The conversation was end
ed. Tbe billionaire sank back into his
cbalr. his thoughts still in a whirl. But
be could not get away from the con
viction that his daughter was really
the pirate's prisoner. The question
was how to rescue her. There must
be no false steps. The scoundrel had
apparently placed himself In bis bands
by giving him a rendezvous. But there
might be danger both to himself and
to his daughter in trying to outwit
him. He must consult the chief of
"Do you know Alfonso Payton?" Mr.
Grayman asked as soon as the com
missioner entered. The latter stared
"Payton hasn't got ber. has he? Then
God help you!" be blurted out
"Yes: I fear that that Is the situa
tion. I have Just bad a talk with the
outlaw, who called me up by wireless
from nowhere and demanded $10,000,
"Ten million dollars!" cried the com
missioner. "Yes, $10,000,000." Mr. Grayman re
sponded testily. "Do you think that
that would break me. or do you think
that my daughter Is not worth it?"
Mr. Grayman's Irritation arose from
the remembrance of Payton's insolent
tores as he had made the demand, and
the commissioner winced at his angry
glance. Then be begged pardon, ex
plaining that such sums were unusual
in his arithmetic. Mr. Grayman was
mollified and proceeded to tell the
story of the conversation by wireless.
"And now I think we've got bim,"
be wound up.
"I'm not so sure." replied the com
missioner, who bad recovered his
aplomb. "Alfonso Payton is the skill
fulest crook alive. He gave you In
the air for location and told you to re
spond 'undirected.' didn't be?"
"Well, he always does. You see. this
wireless telegraph and telephone busi
ness is an enormously powerful lever
in bis bauds. In former times ' kid
napers had to write letters, rfnd letters
can be traced, but Payton carries his
victims off in a swift aero that nobody
has ever been able to follow a perfect
witch of a thing, according to all re
ports aud then he talks ransom with
their friends from heaven knows
where. He leaves no track and no
clews in the air. I've never had to
deal with him myself, for this Is the
first time that he has ventured into
New York, but I've heard all about
him from different parts of tbe coun
try." "He gave me a precise address where
to meet him." said Grayman.
"And 'do yon think you'll catcb him
"How can he hope to get the money
If he doesn't meet me?"
"Ah, I see that you are not up to the
tricks of these crooks. Payton will
watch tbe place from his aero like a
hawk. If he sees any signs of a trap
you might as well try to catch a bird
by putting salt on Its tall."
"What then? Would you have me
tamely pay over $10,000,000 and not
try to catch the wretch?"
"I don't say that" the commissioner
responded thoughtfully. "But If It
were an ordinary sum I might"
"numphr exclaimed Mr. Grayman.
"Then you won't try to help me?" ,
"On the contrary. I will. But we
have got to go to work with extreme
"Tell me your plan, then."
"I've got no plan yet It needs think
"Think quick, then, and you can
name your price If you 6how me a way
to get this Infamous reprobate Into my
power. But before and above all I
must have my daughter safe in my
"That's Just the difficulty. You have
two days, you say. Tribes Hill is
within four hours Journey by rail from
New York. Give me until tomorrow to
arrange my plan."
Mr. Grayman curbed his Impatience
"Remember, absolute secrecy." be
"I shall remember," the commission
er replied. "Expect me tomorrow at
noon, and If human Ingenuity can trap
