some strange ideas as to my friend an«l myself.
Possibly Mr. Goes! himself a resjxmsible for

" 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

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,"
"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
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? "

" 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

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

that that secret, if I die before '. can 'finish

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

" Xot one." he answered.

slowly, "one who is not afraid of death, one
who has the courage to dare everything in a

"You would consider it a great cause to

"My imagination." I declared, "cannot con

"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?"

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
