i At your service now and always
I said she Count gracefully
Will hesitated no longer Catching
I up her skirts she walked swiftly along
the road and Bezkoff followed at a
I slow pace The cottage was only a
stones throw distant and Miss Minter
entering the gates Intimated that the
socalled tramp should seat himself on

The Secret
Eh rtl Miss Minter emerged with
Hilly at her heels Brother and sister
walk straight to where Bezkoff

Tin do you know If Jules Schwyti

And added Willy before the Count i
could speak Mr Hallon whom you
met lifts gone to the address you gave
me to see you and Inquire about Jules
When anked Bezkoff quickly and
changed color
Today this afternoon
Hezkoff bit his lip I wish you had
not given him that address Miss
Minter There may be danger
Cant you save him tOO asked Willy
turning white
I wish to tell both how I came to bo
connected with such a society The Mo
tory will not take me long
Go on said Willy looking at him
To be brief said Bnlort I wa
born at Moscow and my parents were
wealthy and noble Owing to the Jeal
ousy of a high offlolal my father was
accused of conspiracy and was exiled to
Siberia lIe escaped and returned The
police came after him and he was cap
tuned In my mothers boudoir In try
ing to defend him she was hot
Oh said Willy In horror
yes said the Russian and rose his
Mil yes blazing with swift anger and
looking like two sapphires you happy
English people cannot understand what
we suffer from a corrupt government
My father returned to Siberia and die
there In miner my mother as I say
wax shot My only sister and myself
were turned out to starve In the streets
and our wealth was Belted by the high
offlclil who had caused all the trouble
and then Anna disappeared
The Vowels
There was a sympathetic silence
Then Billy esker And this society
It Is called the Vowed Society as I
have explained said Bezkoff rabidly
I not money from my uncle who In
fact allows me an Income not knowing
that I am a member of the society But
I have Joined It In the hope of aiding
my country Should I leave It I would
be killed
Do you want to leave It1 said Willy
Tea said Beikoff and brought his
hand heavily on the table A 8 soon
aa I can I hope to leave it but I o so
at the cost of my tmrnetftate deaf
Unless what aaked DUly deeptj ln
BezJcoff started and passed his hand
across his forehead Dont ask me
thatyet he said significantly
How many members are there of this
society asked Billy bluntly
Only thirty who are controlled by
five moreA E I 0 and U aa I told
you thirtyfive members In all The
aim Is to get money In any way hon
estly or dishonestly as occasion serves
Wo tried to Inveigle Sir John Newby
Into our nets I was chosen to do so
and therefore I came to know him
Dot he was too clever and would not
do business with us But nlohard
Then what Is to be done asked
Willy anxiously
Beikoff who had assumed his dlsvnUe
attain turned quickly I have told you i
Miss Mlnter Ill ffo up and see what 1
can do He moved toward the door
As soon as I can I shall write only
give me a week to do what I can Only
one thing remains to be mid Should
you hear nothing of me or Hallon or
Jules within a week search the vault
Billy rose quite amazed Search the
vault she echoed Do you nwanl

I sleep hill which WEre dotted by open
glades while the roar of the cataracts

i tended from below Here We moved
i with redoubled caution for the sign
hnd grown very freSh and the animals
had once more scattered and begun
feeding When the trail led across the
glades we usually skirted them so as to
keep In the timber
At tall ti nearing the edge of one of
These eludes we saw a movement among
the young trees on the other side not
fifty yards away Peering through the
safe shelter yielded by some thick ever
green bushel we speedily made out
three blzon a cow a calfand a yearling
Brazing greedily on the other side of
the glade under the fringing timber all
with their heads uphill Soon another
row and calf stepped out after them
t did not wish to shoot waiting for the
appearance of the MK bull which I knew
wets accompanying them
So for several minutes I watched
the croat clumsy half y beauts as
all unconscious they grazed In the
open giRd Behind them rose the
dark pines At the left ot the glade
the ground fell away to form the
sides of a chasm down In the depths
the cataracts foamed and thundered
beyond tile huge mountains towered
their crests crimsoned by the sinking

the hunter was a certain half melan
choly feeling as 1 gazed on these

remnant of a doomed and nearly j
vanished race Few Indeed are the j

have the chance of seeing the might

At last when I had begun to grow
very anxious lest the others should
take alarm the bull likewise ap
peared on the edge of the glade and
stood with outstretched head scratch
ing his throat against a young tree
which shook violently I aimed low
behind his shoulder and pulled trig

speed The fringe of young pines be

swayed on If a whirlwind were passing
and In another moment they reached
the top of a steep Incline thickly I
strewn with boulders and 1d timber
Down this they plunged with reckless
speed their surefootedness was a mar
vel In such seemingly tinwleldly ibcasts
A column of dust obscured their pas
sage and under Its cover they disap
peared In the forest but the trail of
the bull was marked by splashes of
frothy blood and we followed It at a
trot Fifty yards beyond the border of
the forest we found the stnrk black
body stretched motionless
He was a splendid old bull still In
his full vigor with large sharp horns
and heavy mane and glossy coat and
I felt the most eiultlng pride as 1 i
handled and examined him for I had
procured a trophy such as can full
