•mwwrr mmwß/wmtm CHAPTER XX.—(Continued.) The due gnashed hie teeth in a passion of Impotent anger. Ho bad •not told Jules of mudame'a quick emo tion at sight of her countryman, how she had greeted him, or that the stal wart American had left the palace iiu mediately after. A moat poisonous suspicion was penetrating his mind. He had Just remembered that she had insisted upon leaving by herself, for bidden nlm to see her to her carriage. What a fool ho had been, to believe ; that women were any better than men! And she had taken him In so easily! All she wanted, of course, was to free herself of police surveil lance, so that ahe might go back to the man who had followed her from America. What was he to do now? Put tho matter Into the hands of the police, and ao incur public exposure? No, that would not do. It would not help him to have her brought back a prisoner. Did he want her back at all, since she had thus cruelly killed his nascent faith in her flawlessness? He did not know. He nastily left the bouse; and, as he walked, with bent head. Quaint ance came toward him, arm In arm with Cornoyer and In a mood no lew reckless. At sight of him the due stopped abruptly, and drew a long, hissing breath. Cornoyer. who knew the due, had nodded a salutation and would Lave passed on. He Intercepted the pair by stepping squarely In front of Quaintance. "The pleasure of a word with mon sieur," he begged, having lifted his but with great ceremony. Quaintance waited, Impassive, while Cornoyer reluctantly drew to one aide. "Where Is madume, my wife?" de manded the due in the game steely and monotonous voice, his chin thrust forward, a Are of hate alight In his narrowed eyes. "How the devil do I know where madame your wife is!” retorted Quain tance. thankful for the excuse to pick quarrel with the roue who had robbed him of his heart's desire. The due struck him. lightly enough, across the face, but the voice in which he branded him. • , Liar!” rang loud. It had scarce left his lips wheu Qualntance returned the blow, but in such wise that his enemy went hurt ling against a bystander who had halted in blank amazement, and they both came to earth with a crash. Cornoyer sprang forward. A crowd gathered. Then Cornoyer went for ward. leaving Qualntance strictly charged to restrain himself, to where the victim of hia friend’s right arm was quietly stanching a cut chin and Striving to convince those who encir cled him that he had no further im mediate violent Intention. He willing ly accompanied Cornoyer in the direction of the door, while Quaiu lance sauntered toward his hotel. When Cornoyer came back he wora a look of genuine gravity for the first time. ••M. le Due demands satisfaction,” he said. ”1 told him that you would be quite ready to accord It. May I .act for you in the matter?" "I hate to drag you in. J. J.,” Qualn tance told him, but —If you don’t mind” "The due's a most expert swords man," Cornoyer staled, reflectively. "He’d run you through in a twinkling, unless you’re a first-class fencer.” "Then we'll strike swords out, old chap." "He’s a dead shot, too," said Cor* noyer. "He'll be a dead shot when I’ve done with him." Qualntance asserted, grimly. "Better make it guns of some kind, J. J " "He’ll send a friend round between 4 and 5. We’ll fix it for tomorrow at dawn, If that suits you." "Perfectly. The sooner we get it over the better.” When M. le Due reached his rooms In the Rue St. Honore, a short walk from the Place Vendome, with hU handkerchief to his chin, he found Tissot-Latour. He had been at a loss to know where to turn for a friend who would not Infer too much from the fact that he mennt to light the American to whom all Paris at the Elyesse had seen his unsmiling duchesse both smile and speak. Fur thermore. this fat vulgarian was cf good standing In the prefecture de police. Tlasot-Latour was too grateful for his kindness to run any risk of curd ling It by acceding to his request oth erwise than freely. "If anything f heard about it I'M hold you responsible," the due cau tioned, menacingly. "You’ll have plenty of notoriety after It’s over." "Me, I seek not notoriety," his sec ond assured him. He panted round to the Rue* St. Roch, and It was settled that the meeting should take place next morn ing. as soon after dawn as there should be light to shoot by. since the weapons were to be platens, at 20 paces. The place, Verrleres. Tlsaot-Latour was on the point of bidding adieu to Cornoyer when O’Fer ral walked in upon them. He passed Into the room beyond, where Qualn tance was resting. CHAPTER XXI. The Postern In the Impasse Dc Paradis. "Confound you, O’Ferral!" Qualn tance cried crossly. "Where have you been? I sat up all night expecting you.” Cornoyer winked warningly from behind, but O’Ferral needed no hint as to his friend’s unfortunate frame of mind. "Been to Havre," he rejoined pleas antly, and, having helped himself to a drink and a cigar, sat down. "Caught the 12:45 there, and have Just got hack. Had a hurry call at the last mo ment to say that I waa lo go. Only time to send you a line, and —here I hid. What’a doing?" Cornoyer came forward, and, “Well?" asked Qualntance. "Tomorrow, at dawn," said he. "be hind a cottage at the edge of the Bole de Verrlerea. Pistols, at 20 paces. Two shots." "One will be sufficient," commented Qualntance, "but you were quite right to agree to a second, J. J." O’Ferral looked grave. "J. J.,’* he remarked, seeking no superfluous explanations, "I want you to do me a favor.” "Consider It done," replied the dlher without hesitation. "I want you to let me take your place tomorrow at dawn. I Introduced you to Newman and you must let mo take a hand in this trouble. I’m bet ter situated than you for any affair r 9 of the sort, because I have no fumlly. If I I and stain! out, us you re going to and oblige roe." “All right,” agreed Cornoyer with an obvious effort. "If Newman — Quaintance doesn't object, have it your own way.” Quaintance hud taken Cornoyer completely Into his con fidence that morning, telling hint tho ktraerge story of Stephen Quaintance, his uncle's will, and the girl who was now the Duches.se des He res. O’Ferral turned to Quaintance with a quick Inquiry. "What’s been hap pening?” "All m> plans have miscarried mo6t damnably,” Quaintance explain ed. "The dead man on whom 1 be stowed my identity does not seem *o have supported it long. There’s a spurious Stephen Quaintance turned up. in tho person of that very fellow J. J. had with him at tho Cornucopia. We met him again last night, but he’d gone before I found out what his gamo was. He must have robbed the body of all my papers, and thought that by posing as me ho might make his for tune. "But lie's Just too late. Miles Qualntance's adopted daughter La married already. She Is the Duchesso des Reves. "The Due des Reves gave me <o understand a couple of hours ago that Ills wife had disappeared, and called me a liar because I stated that 1 did not know where she was. I had never spoken to the man before. Tomorrow at dawn lie and 1 are going to settle accounts, on that, score and other* - .’’ O’Ferral was regarding him with a deep frown. “The duchesso has disappeared!” he said. "Now that's strange—very strange. I saw the duchesse leave the Elyaee last night. It was the due's car* she drove ofT In. I know, but tho chauffeur was that saane fellow you had at the Cornucopia, J. J., and who. It seems, is now posing as Stephen Quaintance. I recognized him with some difficulty, but I'll swear that it was he. And perhaps he could tell the Due des Reves something as to the duchesses thereabouts.” "When does the twedvemonth term of the will expire, Steve?” Quaintance was on his feet. "What date’s this?" he muttered. "The sixteenth. It must be tonight. Yes. that's right I kept a careful note In my memory. Time's up at midnight. “Damnation! What a fool I was. He must have kidnaped her. I wasn’t bothering much about him —I thought he was too late to do any harm. I must get after him at once. I saw him and that scoundrel with the black beard at a door in the Impasse de Paradis. I'll try that first. I’ll shoot him like a dog If” He hurried into his bedroom, mut tering threats, and came back chaig -1 lng a .revolver. "Put tlmt thing down,’’ said O’Fer ral In his utornest voice, his back against the door, whither he had sprung in quick precaution. "Under stand plainly that you and 1 are tak ing the thing up together at this stage.” His masterful tone did not fail of effect on his friend's fevered mind, and to him as commander of the expedition Cornoyer addressed a mod est request that lie might be permitted to Join it. It had been dark for nearly an hour before they set out, and, when they reached the street, it was raining. They went on down the Impasse, and Quaintance pointed out the postern. O'Ferrul pulled a little elec tric torch from his pocket and scrutin ized the keyhole carefully. "Someone been out. and In quite lately,” he said. “We’ll have a look at the front of this building." A weatherbeaten board announced that It was to let. furnished, for a term of years, and that the keys might be had from a nearby bakery. (To Be Continued.) Job Prlnflof don* right.

"MAKE BELIEVE.’* "I'm a man now," said Johnny, and he stretched himself up and swelled himself out. He had on his first pair of trousers, and what boy wouldn't feel grown up at a time like that? But mother and Maggie both got tired of admiring them before long, and Johnny felt he must show them to someone else. So he went down the walk, and down one street and up un other, till suddenly he smelled some one’s dinner, and knew all at once that he was tired and hungry. "I guess I’ll go home," thought John ny. "Lots of folks have seen my pants now " But he couldn’t find the way. He was lost. Johnny was brave.
