THE GREAT SECRET he pardone«l tor saying so. a very imaginative person, Mr. Courage; I'Ut yon certainly have some strange ideas as to my friend an«l myself. Possibly Mr. Goes! himself a resjxmsible for them. A ver>- excitable jx-rson at times!" " You had better take me to him, if that is your errand." 'I said shortly. "This sort ot conversation between you and me is rather a 'a.i t<- of time." t "ertainly." he answered. " Will you follow me'" Wo took the lift to the sixth floor, traversed an entire corridor, and then, mounting a shaft and narrow (tight o4 Stairs, arrived at a paaaafjt with three or lour doors on either side, and no exit at the farther end. We seemed to !*• entirely rut ofl from the main j»>rtion of the hotel, and I noticed that there were no num bers on the doors of the rooms. A tall and powerful looking man came to the head of the stairs, on hearing our footsteps, and regarded us suspiciously. Directly he recognized my companion, however, he allowed us t<> pass. "A nice quiet part of the hotel this." my guide remarked, glancing toward me. "Very." I answered dryly. " A man might l.c hidden here very security," he added. "I can well believe it." I assented. He knocked softly on the third dooron the left. A woman's voice answered him. A moment later the door was opened by a nurse in plain hospital dress. Good evening, nurse." my companion said cheerfully. " This gentleman would like to see Mr. Guest. Is he awake"'" The nurse opened the door a little wider, which I took for an invitation to enter. She dosed it softly behind me. My guide remained outside. The room was a small one, and furnished after the usual hotel fashion. The only light burning was a heavily shaded electric lamp, place l by the bedside. The nurse raised it a little and looked down upon the man who lay there motionless. "He is asleep." she remarked. "It is time he took his medicine. I inu^t wake him." She spoke with a pronounced foreign accent. Her fair hair and stolid features left me little doubt as to her nationality. I was conscious of a strong and instinctive dislike to her. from the moment I heard her speak and watched her bending over the bed. I think that her face was i .ne <if the nn >st unsympathetic which I had ever seen. She poured some medicine into a glass, anil turned on another electric light. Her patient woke at on. c. Directly he opened ms eyes, he recognized me with a little start. "You"'" be exclaimed. "You?** I sat down on the edge of the bed. "You haven't forgotten me. then?" I remarked. "1 am sorry you arc feeling sick. Nothing serious, 1 hope? * He ignored my voids. He was looking at me all the time, as though inclined to the evidence of his senses. "Who let you come up here?" be asked in a whisper. "I made inquiries about you, and got per >n to come up. ' I answered. "H>\v arc you feeling this evening? " " 1 don't understand why they lei you, he uneasily. "Stoop down!" nurse came forward with a wine . "Will you take y,ur medicine, please'" she " Presently," he answered. " Put it d mn." She glai ced at the dock and held the t;!.iss out once more. "It is past the time. " she "" I have ha< 1 twi ■ •!■ -i-s t. >-.!av." he answered. "Quite enough. 1 think. "Set it down and go away, please. I want to talk to this gentle man." "Talking is not go without moving. " Better take your m ep H< • m her hand, an I a glance at its contents which puzzled me, drank :t off. "Now will you go?' handing ba« k the i;!ass t.> her. She dragged her chair t< the bedside. "If you will talk." she s.u,l -» . lii l!y. "I must watch that you .!.. not excite yours inu. h." He glanced meaningly at me. " 1 private matters to discuss." he s.ii.i. "N'oii arc not well enough to talk of private matters, of .i::\t:.!::^ <-Nr important declared. "You will excite yourself. Y,u will bring on the 'ever. I remain here to watch. It is by the doctor's orders." She sat down heavih) within a few feet ol us. "You Speak French'" Guest asked me. 1 nodded. " Fairly well." "Watch her' See whether she mt'iis to understand. 1 want to speak of what she must not hear." She half rose from her chair. As far as her features could express anything. the\ ex pressed disquietude. "She does not understand," 1 s.ti.L "r,»> on." She bent over the In-dside. "You must not talk any more." she said. "It excites you. Your temperature is rising." He ignored her altogether. "Listen*" he said to me. "Why they have let you come here I cannot tell. You know that I am in prison — that I am not likely to leave lure alive?" Continued from pagt 10 " I don't think that it is so bad as that." 1 assured him. "It is worse! I am likely to die without •'.* chance of finishing mv work. Great things will die with me. God knows what will hap pen!" " You have a doctor and a hospital nurse.'* I remarked. "That doesn't look as though they meant you to die." ""You don't know who I am. and you don't know who they are," he answered, dropping his voice almost to a whisper. "I want a month, one more month, and I might cheat them yet." " I do not think that they mean you to die." I said. "They have an idea that you are in possession of 'some marvelous secret. They want to get possession of that first." "They persevere." he murmured. "la Paris — But never mind. They know very well that that secret, if I die before '. can 'finish my work, dies with me, or — " The nurse, who had left us a few moments before, reentered the room. She went straight to a chair at the farther end of the apartment and took up a book. Guest looked at me with a puzzled expression. "Stranger still!" he said. "We are allowed to talk." " It may be only for a moment." I remin«!g«l him. -^ " — Or passes on to a successor who will complete my work." he said slowly. " I rVar that I shall not find him. The time is too short now." "Have you no friends I could send for?" ] asked. " Xot one." he answered. I looked_ at him curiously. A man does not often confess himself entirely friendless. " I need a strong, brave man." he sai.l slowly, "one who is not afraid of death, one who has the courage to dare everything in a great cause." "A great cause." I repeated. "They are few and far bet* nowadays." He looked at me steadily. " You are as Englishman?" I laughed. "Saxon to the backbone." I admitted. "You would consider it a great cause to save your country from ruin, from, absolute and complete ruin 1 " "My imagination." I declared, "cannot con ceive such a situation." "A flock of geese once saved an Empire." he said; "a child's little ringer in the crack of the dan kept a whole city from destruction. One man may yet save this pig headed country of ours from utter disaster. It may be you. it may be I ." " You are also an Englishman?" I exclaimed. " Perhaps." he answered shortly. " Never mind what I am. Think! Think hard! By to-morrow you must decide. Are you content with your life? Does it satisfy you? You have everything else; have you ambition?" " 1 am not sure." I answered slowly. ** Re member that this is all new to me. " I must think." He raised himself a little in the bed. At *»o time on this occasion had he presented [oiN« the abject appearance of the previous night. His cheeks were perfectly colorless, and this pallor, together with his white hair, gave his face a somewhat ghastly cast, but his dark eyes were bright and piercing, his features composed and natural. "Listen!" he said. "They may try to kill me; but I have a will, too.iand I say thut I will not die till I have found a successor t<> carry on to the end what I have begun. Mind, it is no coward's game! It is a walk with death, hand in hand all the way." He raised suddenly a warning linger. There was a kn<x"k at the door. The nurse who answered it came to the bedside. " The gentleman has stayed long enough," she announced. "' He must go now." I rose anil held out my hand. He held it between his for a moment, and his eyes sought mine. "You will come to-morrow?" " I will come," I promised, "to-morrow evening." Ta be ccx&ued r.e*t Sundry Synopsis of Preceding Chapters •.
