my purpose by play, heavy play. Suf
fice It to say that I found myself one
night In a gambling house,.
Luck favored uie, and I won stead
ily. At the end of an hour, so largo
a heap of gold aud notes had accumu
lated on the table before me, that it,
Interfered with my eltx, room, and
f \vp B obliged to stand up to make
ray game. I was In the act of stretch
ing out ray hand to place a large sum,
when some Inexplicable instinctive
feeling compelled me to look up into
the face of a newcomer. The man was,
a Negro. I looked at him more close-,
ly. and then for a second I was al
most stunned with surprise. He was
Jussieu, the ‘nfernal Negro surgeon,
who, at the instance of his master,
Sir Chus. Venner. hud inflicted upon
my bound and defenseless body tor*,
Hires which made me shudder to re
member. Before 1 could collect my
scattered wits our eyes met, and the
recognition became mut .1. The vll- j
lian started back a pace ami glared at
me. his eyes rolling in his heud. He
was attired in a fashionably cut eve
ning suit, in which he tried to ape the
gentleman. For a moment 1 shook
with rage, and a murderous impulse
almost overwhe4med me. Then came a
wiser thought, hnd I grew calm. I said j
to myself: “Since the Jackal Is here,
the lion cannot he far awav. 1 shall
make this scoundrel lead me to his i
master's lair!"
Holding him with my eves. I fum
bled with my hands upon the table, j
ami began to stufT my winnings into
my pockets. Jussieu tore his eyes
from mine and hurried towards the
door. I srtit my chair crashing behind
me with a backward kick and broke
through the crowd and darted after
Jussieu. He had already passed the
door, but I caught UP w, * h h l ,n - ha,T
way down the stairs.
•What. Monsieur Jussieu!” I snarl
ed. “would you run away from an old
friend? That Is not kind In you.''
"You mistake, mateur!” he cried.
That is not my name.”
“Perhaps not, * I muttered. “It will,
however, serve my turn. Come, mon
sieur!” I slipped my arm through his
and urged him down the stairs.
He was still protesting when we
reached the street. But as soon as
the door of the gambling house had
closed behind us I cut him :-hort.
“Look here. Jussieu!” 1 growled. “I
have in my pocket a revolver that is
loaded in every chamber. Take nte at
once to vour master. Sir ( has Venner,
or by the Lord I shall put a bullet
through your head!"
A hasty glance had shown me that
the street was deserted. I produced
tnv pistol, therefore, as 1 spoke and
presented it to his breast
The Negro started back. Hilling h's
rvea like a maniac, but he spoke no
word. He was shivering with fear.
T smiled and returned the weapon to
m v pocket. Thereupon l gripped his
n rir and muttered In his ear: 'Pro
ceed’” _
Uttering a sort of groan he set off
•inwh •Quicker!" I commanded. He
increased his pace. A smart walk
brought us oulcklv to the Rue D Kng
heim Turning Into thtV street the
Negro stopped presently before the
door of a large three storied house,
whose every window was closely shut
f*“We have arrived, monsieur." ha
muttered in a hollow voice.
■ Ydu have a latch key. perhaps.
T asked
*'Yfg f#
T looked steadily at the house for i
moment or two. then curtly forced him
to give me his latch kev.
A moment later he was running off
fn terror down the street. •
1 could not. however, afford to wasM,
thought on him. for I had much to do.|
Without pausing an Instant, I climb-,
♦*d Ihe steps and noiselessly inserted
Jussieu's latch key into the lock of
the front door. It yielded, the door
opened with u slight creak, and i
crossed the threshold. I found myself
in u wide hut dimly lighted hull. U
whs carpeted with cocoanut matting,
liooi s crowded its sides, ull closed.
Hefore me/ whs h staircase, and 1
found myself mounting It. I remember
passing one door and turning the
handle of a second. Then I wus in a
room, (lurk as Erebus, creeping to
wards u lied, upon which lay an un
seen sleeper, whose long, deep
tions guided my stealthy movements.
Whut ensued appeared even then like
nothing so much as the happenings bf
some- wild and fevered dream. I
paused beside the bed and my hands,
drawn by an irresistible power, glided
light as feathers across the coverlid,
across a man's sleeping form, unto
ills throat. There they settled and took
hold. I heard a strangled groan. A
sudden bright light Oiled the room and
Sir Chas Vernier's livid, outst&rlng
eyes glared Into mine. His arms en
circled me. With an almost superhu
man strength he writhed beneath tnc
| from the bed, aud we fell together
! with a dull but heavy crash upon the
floor. With a fierce and terrible satis
faction I watched his face blacken and
swell, his tongue thicken and protrude
from his gnastly open mouth. Before,
however. I could kill him a warning
step and a loud cry sounded from the
door.
Quick as lightning I sprang erect
an<l turned. The Negro surgeon. Beu
dant, Jussieu's companion, was rush
ing towards me. an uplifted bar of iron
in his hand to strike. 1 eluded him,
and. springing to the fireplace, seized
a poker. 1 had quite forgotten my re
volver. For u moment we fenced like
swordsmen with our curious weapons,
speaking no word, but striking heav
ily and warding, filling the place with
the loud claifg of steel.
Two men had entered the room be
fore I was aware of it. Dr. Veruet and
Dr. Fulton. Both men were armed
with revolvers, which they pointed at
my breast. Glancing down the muz
zles of their weapons, I allowed my
weapon to drop. It would have been
madness to do otherwise.
My cantors had only to hand me
over to the police as an apprehended
housebreaker—an attempted assassin,
and nothing that I might do could
save me front a long term of imprison
ment. My very spine went cold at
the idea. I looked hard at Dr. Fulton,
and saw that he was on the point of
recognizing me.
"Why. it's Brown, Dagruar's valet!”
| I had an inspiration. “Better any
! fate,” thought I "thun a French
prison.”
i “Detective Hume, of Scotland
.Yard!" 1 cried. "Dr. Fulton, 1 arrest
| you in the king's name. Better put
down that pistol, sir; your game is
up. The street is full of my men. And
if 1 do not go out to them in the next
, few minutes they will come for me.”
I “Liar!” gasped a choking voice.
Sir Chas. Venner had spoken. He had
recovered consciousness, and ns he ut
tered the word he struggled to his
feet.
“Liar yourself!" 1 retorted desper
ately. “If you don’t believe me. look
out of the window."
I had a wild hope that the noise of
;ny struggle might have attracted the
attention of some chance wayfarers,
whom my enemies might perhaps mis
take for the police. Sir Charles caught
up a revolver, cocked It leisurely, and
pointed it at my head.
“Look out of the window. Fulton.”
he said quietly.
Dr. Fulton peered through the shut
ter into the street below.
“There are four men standing on
the pavement looking up at the top
windows,” lie announced.
Sir Chns Venner nodded, and for a
few seconds stood blinking his eye*'
in earnest thought.
“What would you do?” demanded
Dr. Vernet.
Sir C’ha r les shrugged his shoulders
and cocked his revolver. “We must
quit Paris or die In the attempt.” he
replied. “Mr. Hume, If you wish to
live, vou will he silent. Fulton, look
out of the windows* again.”
Dr. Felton obeyed. “I can no long
er see any one.” he reported.
Sir Charles euppress.-d a curse.
“They must be on the steps, perhaps
entering," he muttered. "Ah. Beudant!
Thank heaven’ Bind him, Beaudant."
The Negro passed a rope around my
arms end in a trice I was secured. A
hell began to tinkle In a distant por
tion of the house. Sir Chas. Venner
started at the sound, and paused for a
moment. Intently listening. The hell
rang atain. Sir Charles threw a cloak
across his shoulders and tip toed to
the dor.
“Holloa! within there," cried a rau
cous voice In French.
"All right!” shouted Sir Qharles.
"We’ll he with you In a moment;
wait!"
I smiled grimly. Some passing po

jopen. had rung the bell in order to

lleved that one of mv agents had i
called out to his confreres, who had
already entered. A moment later
Veruet and Fulton reappeared, dressed
as though for a journey. .
Obeying the guidance of a heavy
baud that gripped my shoulder, 1
marched from the yoora and began to
climb the staircase towards the third
story. The wrbole house Was now
wrapped in impenetrable Uarkuess. a
match wus cautiously struck, and we
entered a small unfurnished room, the
door of which was locked behind us.'
In the middle of this apartment was a j
ladder that comniuuicuted with the
roof. IJeudant climbed it with the
agility of a monkey and raised a trap
in the skylight, through which we all 1
passed In quick succession. Hefore
the muzzle of dir Chas. Vernier's re
volver I crossed a sightly sloping roof
of lead, and stepped over a knee-high
parapet of stone. Thence we travers
ed the tops of three other houses. A
moment later we were all standing
in a long low-celled chamber, iu'oi
, which we had been admitted bv a
{hideous old beldume. Then a terrible
blow on my skull deprived me of con- j
< sclousness.
