THE DAILY g JS IK G TELEGRAPH jlMIirSl I EETPlULXDElil'lIIA, MONDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1807. "you will find I lmvo exasrqcr&tcd nothing. Tuorc It 1, open on my deck." He restimtul hl search, arH In a moment more dincovpTed the forged rrcctpt. It wm on the numbered and primed lorm di-scrtbud by the Bwlfs firm. Veudale mft'le a memorandum of the number and date. .Having replaced the re ceipt and lock i d up tne Iron chamber, be bad leisure to notice Dbfnrelzer, reft'linp tbe letter In the rccebs of a window at the Jar end of tbe room. "Come to the fire," ald Vendale. "Yon look perished with the cold out there. I wiH ring or tome more coals." . Obcnrelzer rose and came lowlT dbck io inn eek. "Marsuertte will bo a noiti to bear or his as I am," he said, kindly. "What do you nean to do ?" , , . "I am In the baud of Defresnlcr sod Com any," answered Veodalo. "In my owl isno tmce of the circumstai ces. I can only do what .hey recommend. Too recciot which 1 have Just found turn out to be the numbered and printed form. They seem to attach some spe cial Imoorlance to It discovery. You have had experience, when you were in the (Swiss house, of their way of doing business. Can you guess what object tbey have In view?" Obenretzer otlercd a siureesiion. "Suppose I examine the receipt V he paid. "Are jou ill V Hsked Vendale, startled by the chance in his lace, which now suowed Itself plainly for the first time. "Pray to to tao flr. you seem to be shivering; 1 hope jou are not going to be ill ?" "ot I !" said Obcnrelzer. "Perhaps ( have caught cold. Your English climate might have spared an admirer of your Knglieh insuiutioi.s. jlet me look at the receipt." Vcudalo opened the iron chamber. Oben Teizer took a chair, and diew It close to tbe fire. He held both hards over tbe flames, "l.ct me look at the receipt," he repeateJ, eagerly, as Vendale reappeaied with the paper in his hand. At the same moment a porter entered the room with a fresh supply of coals. Vendalo told bim to make a good fire. The man obeyed the order with a disastrous alacrity. As he stepped forward and raised the scuttle, bis foot cantrht in a fold of the rug, and be dischaipoii hUentire cargo of coals into tbe grate. The result was au instant smothering ol the flame, and the production of a stream of yellow smoke, without a visible morsel of fl'ie to account lor It. "Imbecile!" whispered Obenreizer to himself, Trith a look at the man which the mau remem bered for many a long day afterwards. "Will you come into tbe clerk's room f" asked Vendale. "They have a stove there." "No, no. No matter." Vendale handed him the receipt. Obenrel zcr's Interest in examining it appeared to have been quenched as suddenly aud as effectually as the hie itself. He just glanced over the docu ment, and said; "No; I don't understand 111 I am sorry to be of no use." "I will write to Neuchatel by to night's post," said Vendale, putting away tbe receipt for ths second time. "We must wait, and see what comes of it." "liy tonight's post," repeated Obenreizer. "Let me see. You will get the answer la eight or niue days' time. 1 shall be back before that. II I can be of any service, as commercial travel ler, perhaps you will let me know between this and then f You will send me written instruc tions? My best thanks. I shall be most anxious for your answer fiom Neuchatel. Who knows? It mny be a mistake, my dear f. lend, alter all. Courage! courage 1 courage 1" lie bad entered the room with no appearance ot being pressed for time, lie now mulched up his hat, and took his leave with the air of a man who had not another moment to lose. Lett by himself, Vendale took a turn thought fully in the room. His previous Impression of Obenreizer was shaken by what he had heard and seen at the interview which had just taken place. He wus disposed, for the Urst time, to doubt whether, tn this case, he had not been a little hasty aud hard In his judgment on another man. Oben reizer's surprise and regret, on hearing the news from Neuchatel, bore tbe plainest marks of being honestly felt not politely a.-sumed for the occasion. With troubles ot his own to en counter, suffering, to all appearances, from the first insidious attack ot a serious illness, he had looked and spoken like a man who really de plored the disaster that had fallen on his trieod. Hitherto, Vendale baa tried vainly to alter his first opinion of Marguerite's guard ati, tor Mar guerite's sake. All the generous instincts in his nature now combined together and shoolc the ovideuce which had seemed unanswerable up to this time. "Who knows ?" he thought, "1 may have read that man's face wrongly, after all." The time passed the happy evcoiugs with Marguerite came and went. It was asain the tenth morning since Vendale had wriUeu to the Swiss firm; aud again the answer appeared on his desk with the other letter of the day: "Dear Sir: My senior partner, M Defresnler. has been called away, by urgent business, to Milan. In his absence (and wlih hi lull concurrence aud autho rity). 1 uow write to you BKala on the subject ot the XuIsaIiik live hundred pound.. "Your discovery tbat the forged receipt Is executed upon one ot our uuiuoered and primed lorms has caused luexprebHlble surprise and distress to my part ner aud to myself. At tne lline when your remittance was stolen, but three keys were In existence opening tbe stiong box In which our receipt forms a'e Inva riably kept. My partner had one key; I had tbe oilier. Tne third was in the pobse8ioii of a gentle man who, at tbat period, occupied a position of trust u our douse. We should as soon have thought of sus pecting one of oumelves as ol Busoectlng this person. Suspicion now points at him, nevertheless. I cannot prevail ou myself to Inform you who tlio person Is, so long as tbere Is the shndow of a chance thut he may come Innocently out ot ibe Inquiry which ruim no.v be Instituted. Forgive my silence: the motive of it is good, 'The form our Investigation must now take Is simple enough. The handwriting on your receipt must be compared, by competent persons whom we have at our disposal, with cerialn speciiueis oi hand writing In our possession. I cuuot rend you the specimens, tor business reasons, wh ch, when you liear them, you are sure i o approve. I mu t beg you to send in e i he receipt to Neuchatel, arid. In making this request, I must accompany it by a word of neces sary warning. "If the person at whom suspicion now points really proves to be tbe iicr ou who has com mine. 1 tins lorgery and theft, I have reason to fear that circum stances may have already put linn on his guurd. The only evidence analnst tiliu Is the evidence in your bands, and he will move heaven and earlb to oblaiu find destroy lu 1 strongly urge you not to trust the receipt to the post. Seud It to me, without loss of time, by a private hand, aud cboo e nobody tor your mekseuger but a person long established in your own employment, accustomed to travelling, capable of speaking French: a muu ol courage.a man ol honesty, and, above all things, a man who una be trusted to let no stranger scrape acquaintance with him on the route. Tell no one absolutely no one but your mes Benger, ol the turn ibis mutter has now taken. The mile transit ol the receipt tuny depend on your Inter preting literally the advice which I give you at the end ol this letter, "I have only to add tbat every possible saving of time Is now of the last Importance. More than one ot our revel pt-lornH Is missing, and It s imposs ble to say what new Iruud may not be committed If we fall to lay our bands on tbe Uiim, "Your falilil'ul servant, ' Holland. "(Signing for De'reamerA Cle.)." Who was the suspected man? In Veudale's pocition, it seemed Ubeless to inquire. Who was to be 6ent to Neucdatel with the receipt? Men of courasre and men ot honesty were to be bad at Cripple Corner for tbe askin?. But where was the man who was accustomed to foreign travelling, who could speak the French, language, and who could be really relied on to let no stranger (crape acquaintance with him oo his route? Theie wai but one man at hand who combined all thoe lequisl'.es in bis own persou, and thut mau was Vendale himself. It was a sacrifice to leave his business; it ws u greater sacrifice to leave Marguerite. But a matter of Uve hundred pounds was Involved in the pending inquiry; and a literal Interpretation of M. Rol land's advice was Insisted on tn terms Ttbich there was no trilling wiih. The more Vendale thought of it, the more plainly the ntcestity faced him, and ssid, '-Go I" f As he locked up the letter with the receipt, the association of ideas reminded bim of oben reizer. A guess at the identity of tbe suspected man looked more possible now, Obenreizer miL'lit know. The thought had barclv passed tbroug'j his mind, when the door opened, and Obeuieizer entered tbe room. "Tiifl lolil mn at Soho Sntmre vou were ex tected back lust rriaht." Haiti Vendale, greeting him. "Have you done well in the country ? Are you better?" A thousund thank. Obenreizer had doue ad wirably well, obenreizer wa IuUiUHy better. And uow twhHt news? Auy letter fiom Neu-fbatel? "A very strange letter," answered Vendalp. "The matter has taken a new turn, and the letter insist without excepting anybody -on my keeping our next proceedings a profound Bccrpta" "WUhout excepting anybody?" repeated Obenreizer. As he said the word", h? walked away again, thoughtfully, to the window at the otber end of the room, looked out for a moment, and suddenly came back to Vendale. '-Surely they mud have forgotten?" ho ro.-sumej, "or tbey would have excepted mat" "It is Monsieur Rollnnd wbo writes," said Ven dale. "And, ns you say, be most certainly have forgotten. That vie ol the matter quite escaped me. I was just wishinir I had you to consult, when you came into the room. And here I am tied by a formal prohibition, which esrnot potsibly have been intended to include you. How very annoying !" Obenteizer'a filmy eyes fixed on Vendale at tentively. "Perhaps it is moro than annoying !" be nald "I came this morning not only to hear the news, but to offer myself as messenger, negotiator what you will. Would you believe it? I have letters which oblige me to go toSwitzetlxnd im mediately. Messages, documents, anything I could have taken them all to Defresnlcr aud Holland for you." "You are the very man I wanted," returned Vendale. "I had decided, mot unwillingly, on going to Neuchatel myself, not five minutes since, because I could find no one here caoable of taking my place. Let me look at the letter again." He opened the strong room toget at the letter. Obenreizer, after first glancing round him to make sure that they were aloue, followed a step or two and waited, measuring Vendale with bis eye. Vendale was the tallest man, and unmis takably the strongest man also of the two. Obenreizer turned away, aud warmed himself at the file. Meanwhile, Vendale read the lat paragraph in the letter for the third time. There was the plain warning there was the closlug sentence, w hich insisted on a literal interpretation of it. The hand which was leading Veudale in the dark led him on that condition only. A large sum was at stake; a terrible suspicion remained to be verified. If be acted on his own responsi bility, and if anything happened to defeat the object in view, who would be blamed? Asa man of business. Vendale had but one course to follow. He loc ked the letter up again. "It is most annoying," he said to Obenreizer, "it is a piece of forgetfulnc9s on Monsieur Hol land's part which puts me to serious inconveni ence, and places me in an absuidly false posi tion towards jou. What am I to do ? I am acting in a very serious matter, and acting entirely in the dark. 1 have no choice but to be guided, not by the spirit, hut by the letter of my instructions. You understand me, I am sure? You know, if I had not been fettered ia this way, how gladly I should have accepted jour services ?" "t'ay no morel" returned Obenreizer. "In your place I should nave dove the same. My good friend, I take no offense. I thank you for your compliment. We shall be travelling com panions at any i ate," added Obenreizer. "You go, as I po, at once ?" "At once. 1 must speak to Marguerite first, of course 1" "Surely 1 surely 1 Speak to her tb's evening. Come and pick me up on the way to the station. We po together by tbe mail train to-night?" "By the mail train to-Tiiebt.' ' It was later than Vendale had anticipated when be drove up to the house in Soho Square. Business difficulties, occasioned by his sudden departure, bad presented themselves by dozens. A cruelly large share of tbe time which he had hoped to devote to Marguerite ha l beeu claimed by duties at his ollice which it was Impossible to neglect. To his surprise and delight, she was alone in the drawing-room wheu he entered it. "We have only a few minutes, Georee," she said. "But Madame Dor has been good to me and we cau have those few minutes alone." She threw her arms round his neck, and whispered eagerly, "Have you doue anything to offend Mr. Obenreizer?" "I !" exclaimed Vendale, in amazement. "Hush!" she said. "I want to whisper it. You know tbe little photograph I have got of you. This afternoon it happened to be on the chimnev -piece. He took it up and looked at it and I saw bis face in the Klass. I know you have offended bim! He is merciless; he is revengeful; he is as secret as the gravo. Don't go with him, George don't go with him !" "Mv own love.' returned Vendale. "you are letting your fancy friebten you I Obenreizer and I were never better friends than we are at this moment." Before a word more could be said, the sud den movement of some ponderous body shook the floor of the next room. The shock was followed by the appearance of Madame Dor. Obenreizer I" exclaimed tins excellent person in a whisper, and plumped down instantly in her regular place oy tne 6tove. Obenreizer came in with a courier's bag stra nned over his shoulder. "Are you ready ?" lie askea, addressing ven dale. "Can I take anything lor vou? You have no travelllne bag. I have got one. Here Is the compartment tor papers, open at your service." "Thank vou." said v endale. "i have only cne paper of importance with me; and that paper I am bound to take charee ot myself. Here it in," be added, touching the breast-pocket ot his coat, "and here it must remain till we get to Neuchatel." As he said those words, Marguerite's hand cauebt bis, and pressed it significantly. She was looking towards Obenreizer. Before Ven dale could look, in bis turn, Obenreizer had wheeled round, and was taking leave ot Ma dame Dor. "Adieu, my charming niece!" he said, turning to Marguerite next. "En route, mv friend, tor Neuchatel!" He taoped Vendale ligatly over tne Dreasv-pocKei oi mscoat, ana lua me way to tue aoor. Vendnle's lat look was for Marguerite, Marguerite's last words to him were. "Don' I ii go 1 lo be continued. QREAT REDUCTION, FOR THE HOLIDAYS. IN Oil.
