By this time he had arrived directly
opposite the box, and, although he was
still undetermined what to do or wheth
er to do anything, he turned his head
and lifted his eyes. No sooner had he
done so than he uttered a cry of disap
pointment and remained rooted to the
spot The box was empty. During his
slow advance Mr Vandeleur and his
daughter had quietly slipped away.
A polite person in his rear reminded
him that he was stopping the path, and
he mo\ed on again with mechanical
footsteps and suffered the crowd to car
ry him, unresisting, out of the theater.
Once in the street, the pressure ceas

night air speedily restored him to the
possession ot his faculties. He was
surprised to find that his head' ached

Miss Vandeleur on her road to market
and by 8 o'clock beheld her stepping
down a lane She was simply and
e\en poorly attired, but in the carriage
of her head and body there was some
thing flexible and noble that would
have lent distinction to the meanest
toilet Even the basket, so aptly did

ment It seemed to Francis, as he
slipped into a doorway, that the sun
shine followed and the shadows fled
before her as she walked, and he was
conscious, for the first time, of a bird
singing in a cage above the lane.
He suffered her to pass the doorway
and then, coming forth once more, ad
dressed her bj name from behind.

he was, became deadly pale

not know even what to feel nor who
are my friends and enemies."
She found her voice with an effort.
"I do not know who you are." she
"Ah, yes, Miss Vandeleur, you do,"
returned Francis, "better than I do
myself. Indeed it is on that, above all.

he answered. "Farewell for the pres

And with these words she was gone.
Francis returned to his lodging in a
state of considerable commotion of
with his fist
that forenoon and was more often at the window
than at his improvised writing table.
But beyond seeing the return of Miss
Vandeleur and the meeting between
(lier and her father, who was smoking
a Trichinopoli cigar the veranda,
there was nothing notable in the neigh
borhood of the house with the green
blinds before the time of the midday
paeal. The young man hastily allayed
his appetite in a neighboring restau
rant and returned with the speed of
unallaye'd curiosity to the house in the
Rue Lepic. A mounted servant was
leading a saddle horse to and fro before
the garden wall and the porter of
Francis' lodging was smoking a pipe
against the doorpost, absorbed in con
templation of the livery and the steeds.
"Look!" he cried to the young man.
"What fine cattle! What an elegant
costume! They belong to the brother

"It is he," replied the porter, "who
lost the great diamond of the Indies.
Of that, at least, you must have read
often in the papers."
As soon as Francis could disengage
himself from the porter he ran up
stairs and hurried to the window. Im
mediately below the clear space in the
chestnut leaves the two gentlemen
were seated in conversation over a ci
gar. The general, a red, military look
ing man, offered some traces of a fam
ily resemblance to his brother. He had
something, although very little, of the
'same free and powerful carriage, but
he was older, smaller and more com
mon in air, his likeness was that of a
[caricature, and he seemed altogether a

"Francis Vandeleur!" he cried, accen
tuating the last word "Francis Van

The dictator made a movement of
ihis whole body, half affirmative, half
contemptuous, but his answer was in
audible to the young man.
Was he the Francis Vandeleur in
question? he wondered. Were they dis
cussing the name under which he *vas
to fie married, or was the whole a^zir
a clfam and delusion of his own con
ceit and self absorption?
Vfter another internal of inaudible

clrostnut, and again the general raised

So another day had passed and little
more learned. But the young man re
membered that the morrow was Tues
day and promised himself some curi
ous discoveries. All might be well, or
all might be ill he was sure at least
to glean some curious information and,
perhaps by good luck, get at the heart
of the mystery which surrounded his
father and his family.
As the hour of the dinner drew near
many preparations were made in the
garden of the house with the green
blinds. The table which was partly
visible to Francis through the chestnut
leaves was destined to serve as a side
board and carried

had bee set apart for the diners, and
Francis could catch glimpses of white
cloth and silver plate.
Mr. Holies armed, punctual to the
minute. He looked like a man upon
his guard and spoke low and sparing
spirits His laugh, which was youth
ful and pleasant to hear, sounded fre- i^
quently from the garden. By the mod
ulation and changes of his voice it was
At length Miss Vandeleur made her
appearance, carrying the soup tureen.
Mr. Holies ran to offer her assistance,
which she laughingly refused, and
there was an interchange of pleasan
tries among the trio which seemed to
have reference to this primitive man
ner of waiting by one of the company.
"One is more at one's ease," Mr. Van
deleur was heard to declare.
Next moment they were all three in
their places, and Francis could see as
little as he could hear of what passed.
But the dinner seemed to go merrily.
There was a perpetual babble of voices
and sound of knives and forks below
the chestnut, and Francis, who had no
more than a roll to gnaw, was affected
with envy by the comfort and delibera
tion of the meal. The party lingered
over one dish after another and then
over a delicate dessert, with a bottle of
old wine carefully uncorked by the
hand of the dictator himself. As it be
gan to groAv dark a lamp was set upon
the table and a couple of candles on
the sideboard for the night was per
fectly pure, starry and windless. Light
overflowed besides from the door and
window in the veranda, so that the
garden was fairly illuminated and the
leaves twinkled in the darkness.
For perhaps the tenth time Miss Van
deleur entered the house, and on this
occasion she returned with the coffee
tray, which she placed upon the side
board. At the same moment her father
rose from his seat.
"The coffee is my province," Francis
heard him say.
And the next moment he saw his sup
posed father standing by the sideboard
in the light of the candles
Talking over his shoulder all the
while, Mr Vandeleur poured out two
cups of the brown stimulant and then,
by a rapid act of prestidigitation, emp
tied the contents of a tiny vial into
the smaller of the two The thing was
so swiftly done that even Francis, who
looked straight into his face, had hard
ly time to perceive the movement be
fore it was completed, and the next in
stant, and still laughing, Mr. Vandeleur
had turned again toward the table
with a CUD in either hand.
"Ere we hav done with this," said
he, "we may expect our famous He-
It would be impossible to depict the
confusion and distress of Francis
Scrymgeour. He saw foul play going
forward before his eyes, and he felt
bound to interfere, but he knew not
how. It might be a mere pleasantry,
and then hoy/ should he look if he were
to offer an unnecessary warning? Or,
again, if It were serious, the criminal
might be his own father, and then how
should he not lament if he were to
bring ruin on the author of his days?
For the first time he became conscious
of his own position as a spy. To wait
inactive at such a juncture and with
such a conflict of sentiments in his
bosom was to suffer the most acute
torture. He clung to the bars of the
shutters, his heart beat fast and with
irregularity, and he felt a strong sweat
break forth upon his body.
Several minutes passed.
He seemed to perceive the conversa
tion die away and grow less and less
in vivacity and volume, but still no
sign of any alarming or even notable
Suddenly the ring of a glass breaking
was followed by a faint and dull sound,
as of a person who should have fallen
forward with his head upon the table.
At the same moment a piercing scream
rose from the garden.
