"We've gone campaigning, both of
us," he said. "I read of you when you
led your regiment into Germany. I
was in a trench myself for five days at
a stretch. Those things don't really
matter. Five daya was quite long

worry about soap then. Get on with It,
Number Twenty-nine closed his eyes
as he shed his last garments. Then he
drew on Gerald'* Presently the gov
"Upon my word." he declared, "It is
better than I thought. I have ordered
the barber into the next cell. He is a
prisoner himself, so there is not much
chance of hta blabbing. Come along.
We will be hack In live minute*" he
added, turning to, Gerald. "In time to
take your orders for lunch, eh? Give
you time to settle down."
They passed out. Gerald felt a queer
sense of loneliness as the door closed
half fearfully. Everything was worse
than he had feared. The floor was of
concrete, and there was not a single
article of furniture of any description
In the room except a straw mattress
already full of holes The floor had
apparently not been swept for week*
While he sat there, however, there was
tbe click of a key in tbe door and a
burly Russian entered. Without a
word he commenced some effort at
cleansing tbe place. When he bad
finished, he threw In a rug and disap
peared. Gerald breathed a little more
freely. Then he heard footsteps out

ber Twenty-nine entered, tbe latter
curiously changed In appearance.
"By all the saints." the governor
chuckled. "I never realised that the
barber was so wonderful a person !
This little scheme of mine marches
well. Now. then, for your share."
He handed a fountain pen to Gerald,
who Indorsed the draft he hud brought,
wrote out a further check for a thou
sand pounds, and handed them, to
gether with his American passport, te
Krossneys. The latter thrust a docu

"Now, listen, both of you." he went
on, "the opiy automobile in the town

minute Say your farewells, you two.
At one o'clock tomorrow morning," he
concluded, turning to Gerald, "you will
be moved into cell *101.' and later yon
will go to attend your own funeral.
From now until one or perhaps half
past one tomorrow morning, you will
have to make the best of It. I will
come and superintend your removal

"I shall try to sleep until then."
Gerald announced. "I am very tired."
"You shall have a little meal In my
office In the Intervals of being

"I shall lock the d«*>r and no one will
know. Now. Mr. Hannon P. Cross,
please. American speculator who haa
bought my oil field* come with me.
I am going to drive you to the train."
Number Twenty-nine held out both
his hands to hla deliverer. There was
a simple dignity In his few word*
"Sir," be said, "I know nothing of
you. but my life will not be long
enough for me to express my gratitude,
the day after tomorrow—''
"Tbe day after tomorrow there will
be much for us to talk about,",Gerald
interrupt«). "What I have done, I
have done Joyfully. So far. it has been
much easier than I expected."
The governor and his charge took
their leave. The door closed behind
them. Gerald heard their footsteps

He departed*finally, Hosing and lock
ing the door behind him. Gerald ate
some bread hungrily and drank the
beer. Then for a time he dosed. When
he woke up and loked at his watch, it
was twelve o'clock. Very soon he
would begin to expect the governor.
He sat dp on the mattress with his
back to the wall. Between twelve and
one o'clock be looked at hla wntcii

to his feet and began pacing the cell
restlessly. Two o'clock came; half

dragging it out from hta pocket. The
great fortress apparently slept There
was no sound anywhere. Only time

the faint smelt of It was refreshing.

The warder shook Ills head.
"Not ask questions," he begged.
"Governor not here."
Gerald pulled himself together and
dismissed the man. He drank the tea
slowly. _ Once more he sat down on the
