lng and sleeplessness after
r her lover's arrest. The next
' day Mother Bouneton brought
beforo her a ludy of striking beau
ty, who wanted to see the towers
of tho ancient euthcdrnl. When uloue
"With her Alice was amazed to hear
her visitor-speak of knowing Lloyd
Kittredge, and she learned tbut the
woman in some mysterious way was
connected with the shocking murder
of Martinez. That the strange visitor
had come to further some purpose as
sociated with KIttredgo became evi
dent to Alice, whose 'amazement grew
apace., for. In addition, the woman
seemed to know considerable about M.
. Finally tho I visitor said: "You must
go to M. Coquenll at once. Tell the
old sacristan 1 havo scut you on an
errand for 20 francs."
Alice smiled faintly. "I can manage
that. But what shall 1 say to M.
The woman drew forth a roll of 100
franc notes and handed them to Alice.
"Speak to him about getting a good
lawyer for tho prisoner aud the mon
ey; I will send more if necessary. Tell
him what has happened between us
and then put yourself in his hands,
Do whatever he thinks best. There
is one thing I want M. Kittredge to
be told I wish you would write It
down so as to make no mistake, nero
Is a pencil, and here is a piece of
paper." With nervous haste she tore
a page from a little memorandum
book and dictated a message to the
American prisoner in the conclorgerle,
which Alice took down carefully.
It wns not until after vespers that
Alice was able to leave N'otre Dame
and start for the Villa Montmorency.
Left alone In Coquenil's study by a
servant to nwait his coming, Alice
glanced in surprise about this strange
ro6m. She saw a photograph of Cae
ser and his master on the wall 'and
went nearer to look 'at It. Then she
noticed his collection of plaster hands
nnd was Just bending over It when
Coquenll entered. She turned with a
"I I beg your pardon," she mnr-
"Are you interested in my plaster
casts?" ho asked pleasantly.
"I wns looking at this hand." replied
the girl. "I lmve seen one like it."
Coquenll 6hook his head good nn
turwlly. "That Is very Improbable."
Alice looked closer. "Ob, but I have,"
"You menu in a museum?"
"No. no; In life."
"You have seen a hand with a little
finger iis loug as this one?"
"Yes; it's as long aH the third finger
and Hiunre at the end I've ofteu no
ticed it "
"Then you have seen something very
uucouiuum. luadcmoixolle. That is the ,
most remarkable hand In my collec
tion It Is the hand of a mail who
lived nearly 200 yearn nga He was
oue of the givnteat criminals the world
lias over known.'
The detective's curiosity wns arous
1. "Would you mind telling me the
, name of the person of course It's
man who has this hand?"
"Yes." said Alice, "it's a man. but 1
should not like to give his name after
what you have told me."
. "A man that you like?"
"Wby-er why. yes. I like blm."
But the dotective noticed n strange look
In her eye. Ho changed the subject.
"You'll have a cup of toft with me.
won't you? Then wo can talk com

"My name la Alice Groeuer. My

Tho girl was seated in tho full light,
nnd us they talked Coquenll observed
her attentively, noting the plensant
tones of her voice nnd the charming
lights in her eyes, studying her with a
personal as well as a professional in
terest, for was 'not this the young wo
man who bad so suddenly nnd so unac
countably influenced his life?
"Would you mind telling mo some
thing, mademoiselle?" he said sud
denly. "W.nnt is it?"
"I'm asking this In tho interest of" M.
Kittredge. Tell me If you know any
thing about this, crime of which ho is
accused. Do you know who was mur
dered?" Alice shook her head blankly. "How
could I? No one has told me."
"It waB a man named Martinez."
Sho started at tho word. "What
the billiard player?" sho cried.
"Did you know him?"
"Oh, yes; very well."
Now it was Coquenil's turn to feel
"You knew Martinez very well?"
"I often . saw him," sho explained,
"at tho cafe where we went evenings."
"Who were we?' "
"Why, Papa Bonneton would take
me, or my cousin, M. Grocner, or M.
"Then M, KIttredgo knew Marti
"Of course, no used to go to seo
him play billiards."
"Were Kittredge and Martinez good
"Never had any qunrrcl?"
"Why cr too," sho replied in somo
"I don't want to distress you, made
moiselle." said Coquenll gravely, "but
aren't you keeping something back?"
'No. no," she Insisted. "I Just
thought of of a littlo thing that made
me unhappy, but it has nothing to do'
with this ensc. You believe me, don't
"Of course I believe you," he smiled.
"Now I am going to give you some of
this tea. I'm afraid It's getting. cold.
Now we'll settle down comfortably,
and you can tell me what brought you
here tell me all about it."
So Alice began and told him about
the mysterious lady.
"This Is very important," ho said
gravely. "What a pity you couldn't
get her name!" He reflected that for
the second time this woman had es
"Does sho speak with an accent?"
"She speaks fluently, like a foreigner
who hns llyed a long tlmo In Paris,
but sho has a slight accent."
"Ah! Now give me her message
again. Are you sure you remember it
"Quito sure. Besides, she made mo
write it down so as not to miss a
word. Here It is." and, producing the
torn page, she read: 'Tell M. KIttredgo

"What can wo do?" murmured Alice,
twining her lingers pitcously.
"We must get at the truth; wo must

Tho quickest way to do that Is through
KIttredgo himself, no knows all about

far he has refused to say a word, but
there Is one person who ought to un
seal his Hps that Is tho girl he loves."
'.'Oh. yes," exclaimed Alice, her face
lighting with new hope. "I think I
could, I am sure I could, only will
they let me see him?"
"That la tho point It is agair-st
tho prison rule for a person au fc-eret
to seo any ono except his lawyer, but
I know the director of the Santo prls
ou, and I thluk"
Alice shivered at the word. "Yes."
sho murmured, "and what were you
"I say that I know the director of
the Snnte. and I think. If 1 send you
to him with a strong note, he will
make an exception I think so."
Coquenll sat down and quickly ad
dressed an urgent appeal to M. Dedet,
director of the Sante. asking him to
grant the bearer a request and assur
ing him that by so doing in- would
confer upon Paul Coquenll a deeply

note. "Now llston. You are t tind

"Then do you know whether M
Kittredge plays tennis?"
Alice looked up In' surprise. "Why.
yos. he dous. I remember hearing him
say he likes It hotter than golf."
"Ah! Now I want to know if M Kit

"It's about ono particular drawer,
tho small upper ono on the right hand
side. Better -write that down."
"Tho smnll upper drawer on the
right hand side," repented Alice.
"I find that M. Kittredge always
kept this drawer locked. Ho seems to
bo a methodical person, and I want to
know if be iremcmbers opening it a
few days ago and finding it unlocked.
,nnvo you got that?"
"Good! Oh, one thing more. Find
out if M. KIttredgo ever suffers from
rheumatism or gout"
Tho girl smiled. "Of course ho docs
not. Ho is only twenty-eight."
"Please do not tako this lightly,
mademoiselle," tho detective cbldcd
gently. "It is perhaps tho most im
portant point of all. His rcleaso from
prison may depend on it"
It was after 0 when Alice left tho
circular railway at tho Montrougo sta
tlon. She came to nn open place where
she recognized Bartholdl's famous Bel
fort lion. Then sho know her way,
and, hurrying along tho Boulevard
Arago, she camo presently to the
gloomy mass of the Sante prison,
which, with its diverging wings nnd
galleries, spreads out llko a great gray
spider in the triangular spaco between
the Rue Humboldt, the Ruo do la
Sante and the Boulevard Arago.
No sooner had the guard heard that
she came with a note from M. Paul
Coquenll than he showed her politely
to a small waiting room. A door open
ed, nnd a hard faced, low browed man
of heavy build bowed to her with a
crooked, sinister smile and motioned
her into his prlvnto office. It was M.
Dedet, tho chief jailer.
Sho wanted to speak with the Amer-i
lean, M. Kittredge. who had been sent
here tho night before-she wanted to
speak with blm alone.
The Jailer snapped his teeth and nar
rowed his brows In a hard stare. "Did
Paul Coquenll send you hero for that?"
ho questioned. x
"Yes, sir," answered tho girl, and
her heart began (o sink. "You see. it's
a very special case and"
"Special case," laughed tho other
harshly. "1 should say so. It's a
case of murder."
"But he Is innocent, perfectly inno
cent," pleaded Alice.
'Of course, but If 1 let every mur
derer" who says he's innocent see his
sweetheart well, this would bo a fine
prison.' No, qp, little one." he went on,
with offensive famlllnrty, "I am sorry
to disappoint you, and I hate to refuse
M. Paul, but It can't be done. This man
is au secret, which means that he must
not see any one except his lawyer."
Alice did uot move. She had been
sitting by a table ou which a large
sheet of pink blotting paper was spread
before writing materials. And as she
listciied to the director's rough words
she took up a pencil and twisted it
nervously lu her Angers. Then, with
Increasing agltatlou as sho realized
that her effort for Lloyd bad tailed,
she began without thinking to make
little marks ou the blotter and then a
written scrawl all with a singular
fixed look In her eyes.
"You'll have to excuse me," said the
Alice ptarted to her feet. "I I beg
your pardon." she Eaid weakly.
Her distress was so evident that
even this calloused man felt a thrill of
pity and stepped forward to assist ber.
And as he passed the table his eye
fell on the blotting paper.
"Why. what Is this?" he exclaimed,
eying her sharply.
"Oh. excuse me. sir." begged Alice,
"I have spoiled your nice blotter. I
am so sorry r'
"Never mind the blotter, but" Ho
bent closer over the scrawled words,
and then, with a troubled look, "Did
you write this?"
"Why er-why ye?, sir, I'm afraid
I did," she stammered.
"Don't you know you did?"
"1 I wasn't thinking," sho pleaded
He went to his desk, picked up a
printed form, filled it out quickly and
handed it to her.
"Thorp." hi said, and bis voice was
"DID Ton WIUTK THIS?'
almost gentle, "I guess 1 don't quite
undjejBtgM fllioujt tMS thing."
Alice looked at the paper blankly.
"But what is It?" sho asked.
"It's what you asked for a permit
to soo this American prisoner, by spe
IXOTD AND ALICE.
mHB Sunday morning servlco was
Just ending when Kittredge
reached the Santo prison, and
ho got bis first impressions of
tho place as bo listened to resounding
Gregorian tones chanted, or, rather,
shouted, by tiers on tiers of prisoners,
each joining In tho unison with full
lung power through cell doors chained
ajar. Lloyd settled down as comfort
ably as might be in his cell to pass tho
afternoon over "Tho Last of tho Mo
hicans." Scarcely had Lloyd finished a single
chapter when ono of tho guards ap
peared with as much of surprise on his
stolid countenanco as an overworked
underjallcr can show, for-an unprece
dented thing had happened a prisoner
au secret was to receive a visitor, a
young woman at that Moreover, be
was to see her in the privato parlor,
with not even the customary barrier
or iron bars to separate them. When
Kittredge crossed tho threshold ho
started back with a cry of amazement
"Alice!" he gasped, and his face light
ed with transfiguring Joy. It was a
baro room, with bare floors and baro
yellow painted walls, tho only furnish
ings being two cane chairs and a cheap
table, but to KIttredgo It was a mar
velous and radiantly happy place, for
Alice was there. He stared at her
almost unbelieving, but it was true.
By somo kind miracle Alice his Alice
Then, without any prelude, without
so much us asking for nn explanation
or giving ber time to make one, Lloyd
sprang forward and caught tho trem
bling girl In his arms and drew her'
close to him.
"You darling." he whispered "you
brave, beautiful darling! I love you!
I lovo you!','
"Lloyd, dear," she said, "I am here

"You littlo angel!" he smiled,
"But first you must answer some '
questions. I'll begin with the easiest
question." sho said. "Now, then, havo
you ever had gout or rheumatism?
Don't laugh It's important"
"Never.!' ho answered.
"Do you play tennis with your right
hand or your left hand?"
'Oh, see here," he protested.
