tittturo of tho prince game.
For I bad no more dealrn to face
a court, even In the role uf wiiin,
than, I impeded, the I'rlnce had to
stand beforo a Judge a complainant.
And If 1 offered tcdlinouy In support

their eye nt nlinoct any olfena'e, If

ignore I hi. The French, lor all
that i written about their moral,
have a reapect for wifehood. They
would insist that th Prince be
brought to trial for conspiracy, and I
would have lo testify In court.
So, while I had no intention of
permitting Hercarord to be deported,
under circumstance that would for
ever stain hi name, 1 waited. There
might bo only one way of klnnlnir
this particular polecat, but I sus
pected thut there might bo anotfcer.
And so, two hour later, when all
the hotel save probably, young He res
ford slept, 1 entered the Trince'
l.iko tho cat which walks alone. I
walked silently. Also my movements
were quiet, I picked the lock with
out difficulty ,and passed through
the door . 1 found myself In a living,
room, at tho far side of which wa an
open door, through which I heard
snores. J tiptoed to it. nceriri
through and entered tho bedroom, A
night-light whs burning, and by Its
rays I could distinguish the screen
behind which, I had heard the Prince
tell Uereaford was a trunk. Now
that trunk had unquestionably con
tained a cash-box-. But If it had
contained anything else of value.
would the Prince have rashly handed
the Knglishmun his keys? Jf, for
instance, the trunk had contained
evidence which would indicate that its
owner possessed unnrlncelv habits
would the Prince have given up the
Keys : -
This action of mine was based on
Uj iiiuury, none ioo logically ac
quired, that the Prince was a crimi
nal. Unless I should find proof in
support of my theory, my nocturnal
visit would be not merely dangerous
but useless. And it was silly to look
for evidence in tho trunk,
It the rrince ivas what I thought
him to be, proof in support of my be
lief would be found only upon his
person. And It is a difficult thing to
search a sleeping man without awak
ening him, Nevertheless I did it.
And having done so, I raggedly
clipped from his great black beard a
tuft of his precious whiskers. Theji
i returned to my room.
Three minutes later I had broken
two chairs, overturned a dressing
table, and smashed a pane of glass in
the window. Also, I had shouted at
the top of my lungs, and had aroused
the valeet de chnmbre who slept in
a cubbyhole at the end of the cor
ridor. He had aroused the night
clerks, and to these latter and to the
porters who accompanied them, I
poured forth my tale of nocturnal
crime; ,
"I was awakened by the sound of
footsteps. I saw a huge figure by
the side of my bed. 1 attacked him.
We fought. Behold, messieurs, the
condition of my room." 1 gesticu
lated wildly, indicating the damage
which I had just committed.
"But it is outrageous, monsieur,"
cried one of the clerks. "That such
a thing should happen In the Hotel
tie Paris is almost incredible. Was
anything taken from Monsieur?"
"I doubt it," 1 replied, "but I will
see." J felt In the pocket of my
dinner Jacket. "My purse," I cried,

question. i opened my hand, fpon
my palm lay a tuft of black whiskers.
"I tore these from his face in our

"Ah!" they cried in unison.
I glanced down upon the floor.
Something caught my eye.
"Look!" I cried.
A porter picked up the golden ob
ject. It was a pencil, richly chased.
I bent over and from the floor picked
up a visiting card, torn and crushed.
Dramatically I smoothed it, and read
the name, "Prince Meerkovst."
"The thief name," I exclaimed.
"Trince Meerkovst!" eried on of
the clerk. The other echoed hi
name. The second clerk assumed an
air of great shrewdness.
"That is why, a thief himself, h

he said. "Ah. the canaille! We
