talk in French again, but they only
spoke of triflesa fancy ball which is
to be given by some banker. When
Raoul was leaving, my master said,
'Since this thing is inevitable, and it
must take place today, you had better
remain at home, at Vesinet, this even-
ing.' Raoul replied* 'Certainly.'
Night was coming on, and the room
Was gradually filling with men, who
called for absinth or bitters, and
youths, who perched themselves upon
high stools and smoked their pipes.
"It is time to go," said M. Verduret
to Joseph. "Your master will want
you. Besides, here is some one who
wishes to speak with me. I will see
you tomorrow."
The newcomer was no other than
Cavaillon, more troubled and frighten
ed than ever. looked uneasily
around the room, as if he feared the
whole Paris police force to appear and
carry him off to prison. He did not
sit down at M. Verduret's table, but
stealthily gave his hand to Prosper,
and, after assuring himself that\ no
'one was observing them, handed M.
Verduret a package, saying:
"She found this in a cupboard."
It was a handsomely bound prayer
book. M. Verduret rapidly turned over
the leaves and soon found the pages
from which the words pasted on the
letter received by Prosper had been
cut.
"I had moral proofs," he said, hand
ing the book to Prosper, "but here is
material proof sufficient in itself to
save you."
At sight of the book Prosper turned
pale as a ghost. He recognized this
prayer book instantly. had given
it to Madeleine in exchange for the
medal. On the fly leaf Madeleine had
written, "Souvenir of Notre Dame de
Fourvieres, 17 January, 1866."
"This book belongs to Madeleine!"
he cried.
31. Verduret did not reply, but walk
ed toward a young man dressed like a
wine merchant, who had just entered
the room. He glanced at the note
which this person handed to him and
hastened back to the table.
I think we have got them now!" he
said excitedly.
Throwing a five franc piece on the
table and without saying a word to
Cavaillon, he hurried Prosper from the
room.
"What fatality!" he said as he has
tened along the street "W may miss
them. I fear we shall reach the St.
Lazare station too late for the St. Ger
main train."
"For heaven's sake, where are you
going?" asked Prosper.
"Come on. We can talk on the way."
Reaching Palais Royal place, M.
Verduret stopped before one of the
hacks belonging to the railway sta
tion and examined the horses at a
glance.
"How much to Vesinet?" he asked of
the driver.
"I don't know the road very well
that way."
The name of Vesinet was enough for
Prosper.
"I will point out the road," he inter
rupted quickly.
"Well," said the driver, "at this time
of night in such dreadful weather it
will be 25 francs."
"And how much for driving very rap-
idly?"
"I leave that to your generosity, but
if you make it 35 francs I think"
"You shall have a hundred," inter
rupted M. Verduret, "if you overtake a
carriage which has half an hour's start
of us."
"By thunder!" cried the delighted
driver. "Jump in quick! W are los
ing time!"
And, whipping up his lean horses, he
galloped them down Valois street.
CHAPTER X.
EAVING the little station of
Vesinet, we come upon two
roads. One, to the left, mac
adamized and kept in perfect
repair, leads to the village, of which
there are glimpses here and there
through the trees. The other, newly
laid out and just covered with gravel,
leads through the woods. At the junc
tion of these two roads Prosper stop
ped the cab. The driver had gained
his hundred francs.'' The horses were
completely worn out, but before long
M. Verduret could distinguish the
lamps of a cab similar to the one he
occupied about fifty yards ahead of
him. Alighting from the cab, he hand
ed the driver a bank note.
"Here," he said, "is what I promised
you. Go to the first tavern you find on
the right hand side of the road as
you enter the village. If we are not
there, you are at liberty to return to
Paris."
The driver was profuse in his thanks,
but neither Prosper nor his companion
heard them. They had already started
up the new road. The weather, which
had been inclement when they set out,
was now worse. The rain fell in .tor
rents, and -a furious wind howled dis
mally through the branches of the
trees. M. Verduret and Prosper hati
been walking along the muddy road
for about five minutes when suddenly
the latter stopped.
"This is Raoul's house," he said.*
Before the gate of ah isolated house
stood the cab which they had follow
ed. Reclining on his seat, wrapped" In
a thick cloak, was the driver, who, In
spite of the pouring rain, was already
asleep, evidently waiting for the per
son whom he had brought to this
house.
M. Verduret .went to him, pulled his
cloak and said in a low voice:
"Hello, my man."
The driver started and, mechanically
gathering his reins, yawned out, "All
right"'
But when by the light of the carriage
lamps he saw two men in this lonely
spot he imagined that they wanted his
purse and perhaps his life.
"I am engaged!" he cried out as he

cracked his whip in the air. I am
[Waiting ttere for some one."
knoir that, you fool," replied M.
Verduret, "and only wish to ask you a
question whifch you can gain five
francs by answering. Did you not
bring a middle aged lady here?"
This question, this promise of five
francs, instead of reassuring the coach
man, increased his alarm.
"I have already told you I am wait
ing fof some one," he said. "Move on
or I will call for help."
M. Verduret drew back quickly.
"Come away," he whispered to Pros
per. "The beast wii^do as he says and,
the alarm once given, farewell to our
projects. We must find some other en
trance than by this gate."
They went along the wall surround
ing the garden in" search of a place
where it was possible to climb.
This was difficult to discover in the
dark, the wall being twelve feet high.
'Fortunately M. Verduret was very
agile, and, having decided upon the
spot to be scaled, he drew back and,
making a sudden spring remarkable
for so big a man, seized one of the pro
jecting stones above him, drawing him
self up by the aid Of his hands and
feet to the top of the wall. I was now
Prosper's turn to climb up but, though
much younger than his companion, he
had not his agility, and M. Verduret
was obliged to pull him up, then help
ed him down on the other side,. Once
in the garden, M. Verduret took in the
situation. The house occupied by M.
de Lagors was built in the middle of a.
large garden. It was narrow, two sto
ries high and with garrets.
Only one window, in the second sto
ry, was lighted.
"You have often been here and know
the house?" said M. Verduret. "What
room is that where we see the light?"
"Raoul's bedchamber."
"Very good. What rooms are on the
first flo**'
"The kitchen, pantry, billiard room
and dining room."
"And on the floor above?"
"Two parlors, separated by folding
doors, and a study."
"Where do the servants sleep?"
"Raoul has none now. is served
by a man and his wife, who come in
the morning and go after dinner."
M. Verduret rubbed his hands glee
fully.
"All right," he said. "There is noth
ing to prevent our hearing what Raoul
has to say to this person who has come
from Paris at 10 o'clock at night to see
him. Let us go in."
But unfortunately the heavy oak
door was locked. M. Verduret shook it
in vain.
"What an oversight" he said, with
vexation. "I ought to nave brought my
instruments with me. A common lock
which could be opened with a nail, and
I have not even a piece of wire!"
Recognizing the uselesshess of an at
tempt to open the door, he tried suc
cessively every window on the ground
floor. Alas, every blind was securely
fastened on the Inside.
M. Verduret was exasperated.
prowled around the house like a fox
around a hen coop, seeking an en
trance. Despairingly he came back to
the place in front of the house whence
he had the best view of the lighted
window.
"If I could only look in!" he cried.
"In there," pointing to the window, "is
the solution of the mystery, and we are
cut off from it by thirty or^ forty feet
of these two stories. I must see, and I
will see!"
Suddenly Prosper seemed to remem
ber something.
"There is a ladder hered" he cried.
"Why didn't you tell me? Where is
it?"
"At the end of the garden, under the
trees."
They ran to the spot, and in a few
minutes the ladder was up against the
house. But to their chagrin they found
that there were six good feet between
the top of the ladder and the lighted
window.
"We cannot reach it" exclaimed
Prosper.
"We must reach it!" cried M. Verdu
ret
And he quickly placed himself a yard
off from the house and, seizing the
ladder, cautiously raised it resting the
bottom round on his shoulders, at the
same time holding the two uprights
firmly and steadily with his hands.
The obstacle was overcome.
"Now mount," he said to his compan
ion.
The situation was distressing for
Prosper, but he did not hesitate.
made a sudden spring and, seizing the
lower rounds, quickly climbed up the
ladder, which swayed and trembled
beneath his weight But his head had
scarcely passed above the lighted win
dow when he uttered a cry which was
drowned in the roaring tempest and
dropped like a log, down on the wet
grass, crying:
"The villain! The villain!"
With wonderful promptness and vig
or M. Verduret laid the ladder on the
ground and ran toward Prosper, fear
ing he was dead or dangerously in
jured.
"What did you see? Are you hurt?"
he whispered.
But Prosper had already risen. Al
though he had had a violent fall, he
was unhurt
"I saw," he answered in. a hoarse
voice"I saw Madeleinedo you un
derstand, Madeleine?in that room
alone with Raoul."
M. Verduret was confounded. Was
it possible that he, the infallible ex
pert, had been mistaken in his deduc
tions?
well knew th at M. de Lagors' vis
itor .was a woman, but his own conjec
tures and the note which Mme. Gipsy
had sent to him at the tavern had fully
assured him th at this woman, was
Mme. Fauyel.
"You must/be mistaken," he said, to
Prosper.
"No, monsieur no. Never could I
mistake another for Madeleine. Ah,
you who heard wh at she said to me
yesterday, answer me. Was I to ex
pect this infamous treachery ?~JSbu said
to me then, 'She'toyed you, li ne loves
M. Verduret did not answer. had
first been stupefied by\hisf mistake and
was now racking his brain to discover
the cause of it, which was soon dis
cerned by his penetrating mind.
"This is the secret discovered by
Nina," continued Prosper. "Madeleine,
this pure and noble Madeleine, whom L,
believed to be as immaculate as an
angel, is alone with this thief who has
even stolen the name he bears, and I,
trusting fool that I was, made him niy
best friend. I confided to him all my
hopes and fears, find he was her lover!
Of course they ridiculed :iy absurd de
votion and stupid confidence!"
"How do we know," said M. Verdu
ret "that Mile. Madeleine is here on
her own account? Did we not come to
the conclusion that she was sacrificing
herself for the benefit of some one?
That superior will which compelled her
to your dismissal may have brought
about this step tonight."
That which coincides with our secret
wishes is always eagerly welcomed.
This supposition, apparently improba
ble, appealed to Prosper.
"That might be the case," he said.
"Who knows?"
"I would soon know," said M. Ver
duret, "if I could see them together in
that room."
