"' V fPSRaSfZ TYPICAL Parisian rcll, indicating by nil almost Imper ceptible gesture thopnsslng throng upon the pave ment "always animated, various. full of life and color." "Interesting because interested," re Joined Gordon, slowly twirling his wineglass by the stem "interested In a. vast range of small matters, the trl Jllng affairs of the moment." "Not a bit 'like New York," Darrell continued, "and always new to me. Bee those young fellows, clerks, I sup pose, going home. Would you seo any o light hearted on Broadway? Why, every mother's son of them would bo pnawlng his mustache with fierce de termination, and If an honest answer could be had you might ask one ques tion of fifty of them in succession and Bet the same answer every time. 'What nro you thinking about?' 'I'm think ing nbout a scheme to get hold of some money.' And if twe were talking it would be of business of girls, perhaps, once In awhile, but of business nine -times In ten. Look nt the people sit ting around these tables" Darrell shifted his glance with the last words, and there was a pauso be 'fore he added In an altered and much lower tone: "Now, that's a little more, like what we're accustomed to see at home." Gordon turned a cautious cyo toward a table upon their left. "You mean," ho said, "your Russian -.friend and tho black whiskered plrato who Is talking to him?" Darrell nodded. "IiYoin a snatch of their conversation which I overheard," said Gordon, "I Judge that your friend has been losing money In a gambling club nnd Is anx ious to return and loso soino more. .The other Is dissuading him." "Then I beg tho pirate's pardon," re plied Darrell. "I thought he was try ing to sell Getchikoff a gold brick. That's what reminded mo of New York." "What's his "name?" asked Gordon. "I didn't catch It." , . "Ivan Getchikoff," was the reply. "He's tli; son of, the governor general of Stavropol, In the Caucasus, nnd colo nel In the czar's army. I met him .Uirough IJrnybrook of the British cm Jkassy, Ho seems to bo a gentleman, 3ut he's no friend of mine. His so ciety is a little too thrilling for mo In my present state of nerves." "Wanted you to assist at some sort of a duel, didn't he?" "Yes, but I succeeded In dodging It," eald Darrell, "without getting Into one jnyself, as usually hnppens over hero when a fellow attempts to evade those little social obligations. No more of that sort of thing for me. Bob, there's nothing In It. ufid nobody knows that better than I do." Gordon nodded several times slowly and with a glance that uiny liavo be trayed a truce of envy. "You've had adventures In all quar- 1 tcrs of tho globe," ho said, "whilo 1 well, I married early nnd settled dowu, and I've been thoroughly happy," ho Added almost dcUautly. "I shan't marry." replied DarrelL "but 1 shall certainly settle down. In fact, 1 have. 1'vo been a good deal of life In tho last ten years. No dissipa tion, you understand, or as little ns a man can get along with. And really It was nil luck. Wherever 1 went 'Something was bound to happen," . "And If It didn't." rejoined Gordon, "you made It. I know you. Jack. I know you through and through. Ad venture Is your natural food. Was It luck that got you luto that last awful 3Ig In Wall street?" "No; but It was luck that got me out of It," said Darrell, with a laugh. "Up on my soul, Bob, I was near losing every cent I had In tho world, nnd then well, I think It was the winning .that broke mo down. At any rate, I iwaa a wreck when tho thing was all cleaned up. I havo tho doctor's word for It, and if my mother bribed tho doctor to say It, why, so much the bet--tcr for tho doctor and for mo if I tnko Ws advice. 'Absoluto rest,' ho said, and ho was right If n Ore engine goes by In theso days, I turn my back to .avoid tho excitement, though there's .nothing nervous In tho sight of n Paris engine plodding along. But this man Getchikoff Is another proposition. Hel lo, bo's getting out bis checkbook! I know It was a gold brick samel Wait ,crl" DTo took a passing servant by tho sleeve and whispered to him: "If that Russian gentleman asks you .Car a pen and ink, don't get them. Do yon comprehend 7 This for yourself." And he put some money Into tho fel Jow hand. Ten seconds later Getchikoff was - .asking for writing tools, and the obllg tBg servitor was promising to fetch them Instantly. But be did not do It. Getchikoff had been drinking moro wine than was good for blm and had passed Into a condition whero a friend might prevent blm from spending his -money foolishly by any devlco that uceracU adequate. Ho swore at tho waiter for returning without tho pen, and It was whilo relieving his feelings In this way that ho first saw Darrell, to whom his back had been turned , .when tbo. two. Americans sa.t do.wn. 0-KHHKH-OCOCH-0-KH-0-r. Arising unsteadily, ho approached their table, with extended hand. Darrell slowly raised his eyes, with n glance, of mild curiosity quite charac teristic uf him. He had tho face of n student and n gently questlouing man ner. Ho seemed n person of leisurely nnd snfo conclusions and ono who took a very serious view of nil things great or small. In reality his manner was n mask and tho man behind It a lorn Jester. Ho was enjoying at that mo ment the drunken dignity of tho pon derous, yellow bearded Itusslan, copy ing It mentally for use In some story that should set a dinner party of good fcllowB roaring. But no man could have guessed It Ho greeted Getchikoff with gravity nnd introduced Gordon, with tho result that tho swarthy and formidable Indi vidual hitherto called "the plrato" was summoned nnd presented. It appeared that ho was a captain nnd that his patronymic was I.adlslov. He spoko French like one long nccustonicd td its use, and the conversation offered no linguistic dlfticulttes. It had, Indeed, scarcely begun when Getchikoff sud denly spied a stylogrnphlc pen In Dnr rell's waistcoat pocket and requested permission to use it. Tho pen was a very largo one, and a good threo 'Inches of It protruded from tho pocket so that it was quite conspicuous as Darrell sat there with his coat thrown open. "Pen?" cried Darrell, annoyed by tho Incident and determined to savo Gctchl koff from a folly If possible or nt least to avoid assisting him In the commis sion of It. "That Isn't a pen; It's a musical Instrument." And he put It to ills lips ns ono holds n flute. Getchikoff, whoso wits wero by no menus clear, seemed to credit this tlction without question. Indeed, ns Darrell knew, ho was n man who would bellevo anything of an Ameri can, eveu to the ecceutrlclty of car rying a little flute In a waistcoat pock et "It Is much used In my country," said Darrell politely. "You might almost call It the national Instrument" "I never saw ono before," replied Getchikoff, with perfect seriousness, nnd the Jest was In a fair way to pnss successfully when Ladlslov, leaning upon tho table and looking keenly nt Darrell, said: "I would gtvo much to hear you play upon It." Gordon glanced at Ladlslov in sur prise, being still convinced that the man had sought to dissuade Getchikoff from drawing a check. In fact, ho had distinctly heard him speak against that course. "Would you?" said Darrell, redden ing at this- obvious attempt to put him in a difficulty. "Then you shall bo gratified." And softly, "but with a clear nnd very ngrefrablo "tone, ho played "nail, Co- '"lumbla'!" fu a manner that was a per fect Illusion. It was a trick that Dar rell had learned long ngo, In college days, when his repertory of Imitations had included many instruments. Gor don, to whom t'ie performance had been fnmlllar in those old t . 'es, could not remember to have beam It better "1 do not like your American Jokes." Cone, nnd ho experienced n boyish de light In the utter surprise and confu sion of the captain. Having finished tho air, Darrell smil ingly passed tho pen to I.adlslov, a pro ceeding not unsafe, for tho cap closed and opened by means of a spring not easily discovered. Incident to this mechanism thero wero two perfora tions of tho outer shell, which might seem to connect with tho Inner parts, though they did not. "That's where you blow," said Dar rell, pointing to the holes, while Gor don controlled his countennnco with considerable difficulty. Ladlslov fumbled with tho pen, and he beenmo red with wrath. "A clover trick," ho said in a very un pleasant voice, "an accomplishment of tho vaudeville." "I do not like your tono, sir," said Darrell calmly as ho extended his hand for the pen. "And I do not liko your American Jokes," replied Ladlslov, riling. "Among gentlemen thero are certain views about lying" Gordon expected to see Ladlslov's body go flying over the table behind him, for he knew Darrell of old as a man exceedingly prompt In such mat ters. But Darrell merely put the pen Into his pocket ns If ho had beard noth ing offensive, and, leaning back In his chair, ho regarded Ladlslov with an agreeable smllo. "You should not permit yourself to become excited," ho said. "I havo been Informed by my physician that it Is exceedingly bad for tho health." Getchikoff was staring stupidly, un able to comprehend wvha,t was passing. I Y 1 PARKER'S HAIR BALSAM Clranfct ami twintlfui th halt. l'riimotct n luxunanlp'owth.

"You nro right," he said. "Wo must go. Gentlemen, wo regret tliat we have not more leisure." And he struggled clumsily with his watch. I.adlslov remained for n mo ment scowling nt Darrell and seeming ly nt a loss for words; then, tnklng Getchikoff suddenly by the arm, he led him nway among the tables and Into tho enfo beyond. Ten minutes after ward tho waiter whom Darrell had bribed camo up behind him and said In n cautious tone: "Monsieur, I did ns you told me, but they found pen nnd Ink inside. The man with yellow hair signed some thing for the other." "A check?" asked Darrell. "No, monsieur; It was some sort of document which tho man with the black beard took from his pocket." "Thank you," said Darrell, reward ing him once more. "They sny," remarked tho waiter, "that monsieur nnd the man with the black beard had a quarrel." "They ll," said Darrell, addressing Gordon rather than the servant "No mnn can quarrel with me, nnd tho next ono thnt tries It will get his head bro ken. I nm here for rest." Ho tapped gently on tho tnblo with his clinched fist to emphasize this state ment, and Gordon laughed. "You will go with my wife nnd mo to tho students' ball this evening," ho sold. "That will be restful nfter the compnny in which you probably at tended tho last one. And. .besides, we shall leave before the trouble begins." CHAPTER II. rniNccss veka'b coaciiman. HE Gordons had spent the whiter In Paris and had occupied a house in Passy, mod est considering their menus, but exceed ingly comfortable and convenient They were people of a wide ac quaintance, nnd their homo hnd shel tered many guests, mostly Americans making brief visits to tho Krpnrli capital. At the timo of the inci dents herein described there were but two, Darrell and Miss Edith Lorrimer. The young woman wns cousin to Mrs. Gordon and, llko that lady herself, n student of nrt Mrs. Gordon, Indeed, wns something more than a student having won the beginnings of a name among painters. As to Miss Lorrimer nnd Darrell, the Gordons hnd enter tained n hope that had recently taken on the color of fear, for a match Im plies the desire of two, and the worst that con happen Is that tho woman alone shall feel It. When Gordon and Darrell returned to tho villa after the Incident Just de scribed, they learned that Miss I.orrl mer's uncle and aunt had arrived In Purls earlier than they had been ex pected and that the young lady had gone to take up her abode with them In one of the big hotels. It was In tho nature of a flight, aud not even Darrell himself could bo blind to the fact. He suffered the pangs of remorse that particularly distressing remorse which does not permit n man to mention his fault to his own soul, since the confes sion must be tainted with presumption. Indeed, u gentleman cannot even plt-ad complete Innocence, for to say to his conscience that ho has won a heart without attempt is to Hatter his own vanity and slur the lady its too willing. The party of four for tho ball was broken up. Tho Gordons nttouded, upon their guest's Insistence, leaving the house nbout 10 o'clock, and Darrell rode with them in their carriage a lit tle way. alighting near u club, which, upon second thought, he did not visit. Instead ho spent some hours roaming aimlessly nlxiut tho city, a prey to great discomfort nnd full of tho best resolutions concerning tho avoidance of nil communications with women that should go beyond the yea, yen aud nay, nay approved In holy writ it nmy nave been' about midnight when ho wandered luto a dark street which attracted him because It seemed to bo deserted, though tho boulevard from which he hnd Just come wns all alive. A carriage passed him at a smart pace, and he looked nfter It with a vague notion of something unusual. This Impression gradually became more definite, nnd he perceived that Ills at tention had been attracted by tho pe culiar nolso mnde by tho equipage or, to bo more accurate, by tho Inck of noise. The wheels rolled silently, nnd tho beat of the horses' hoofs wns muf fled. Stepping down from the sidewalk in front of one of the few lamps upon tho way, Darrell discovered that the street was paved with wooden blocks, and then ho remembered having read that an English company wns endeav oring to Introduce a now pavement and hnd furnished a sample gratuitously. As he stood staring, with truo Amer ican curiosity for anything partaking of tho nature of an Invention, a span of horses drawing a closed carriage swung around from the boulevard,' and some small outcry was raised. Then from within tho vehicle there came a single sharp scream as of terror, a woman's voice raised and almost In stantly checked, Obviously here was a runaway, and In two seconds Darrell was hanging upon the horses' bridles, dragged nnd trampled and very nearly Impaled upon the pole, for tho animals had swerved Just as he had sprung to ward them, bringing him much moro squarely In front of them thnn he hnd Intended to be. nowover, he succeed ed in hnltlng tho tenm without sustain lng serious Injury, nnd ns they showed no deslro to bolt again he stepped away from their heads and back toward tho vehicle. ... WSZ3Z mm Ho was about to tfpeak when sudden ly tho coachman leaned far forward from his seat and struck violently with He struck violently with a Itcavu whip. a heavy whip. The lnsh cleared Dar rell's bend as he dodged forward under it nnd came down with great force up on his back. The sharp pain and, nbovo nil, tho unexpected nnd unnnturnl act Itself Inspired Darrell with a purely Instinctive wrath. Ho leaped to ona side, avoiding a second blow, and then sprang up In such a way as to get a momentary footing on tho forward wheel, whence he passed cm upward ns If upon wings, nllghting against tho coachman, who, rather from surpriso perhaps thnn from tho force of tho shock, lost his balance nnd fell to tho street It was lucky for Darrell that the fel low did not carry tho reins with him, for the horses nearly Jumped out of their harness, frightened by the whirl ing whip nnd perhaps by the volley of curses with which the coachman had re-enforced the blows that he had aim ed at Darrcll's head. The team bolted frantically, and It was n mnttcr of life or death for the man on the box. Uls own safety, coupled with a fleeting thought of tho woman whose cry ho hnd heard, kept Darrell busy with the horses, aud he had no time to look back to see whether tho coachman had bro ken his neck. There wns u clenr Infer ence thnt he had not, however, for It could hardly have been any one else who, at the moment when the fright ened animals sprang forward, dis charged a pistol that had the resonance of n small cannon nnd shook tho win dows of tho narrow street. 1'ortunntely, the way was absolutely clear. Moreover, Darrell was a strong and well trained master of horses, and ho had not n particularly mettlesome team to deal with. Ho had secured something near to control of tho brutes, though he could not yet stop them, when ho reached the end of the street nnd turned Into tho avenue. It was not a right nngle. but the carriage was on two wheels as It went round. Favored by fortune, ho found another inure quented .street convenient for his nee 1. and before he had come to the end of it the horses wero weary of the strug gle. Yet for the bake of safety Darrell tiii-neil them up n hill, upon the crest of which he brought them to a stniTd. Upon the last part of the course Darrell had hnd time for reflection, and there were many puzzles whirling through his mind. GrauthiL- Hint lu liml stopped n team that was not running nway, It was natural, perhaps, that tho driver should havo remonstrated with him, but hardly so vehemently, with Mich blows and maniacal curses. Why hnd the woman screamed? How had It happened that a Paris Jehu had been so prompt with his revolver? Why had he not fired a second time? Why had he raised no huo and cry? At the moment of turning Into the avenue Darrell had had a glimpse of the street, and he had seen two figures running, ono undoubtedly the coach man, tho other perhaps a chance way farer, but both silent. That they should do that amounted to an ab surdity, for either ho wus running nway with tho horses or they were running nway with him, nnd In ono case or tho other It would be natural that tho pursuer should cry out. More over, there hnd been uo sound from tho Interior of tho vehicle since tho mo ment when tho horses had nindo their first plunge. Then Darrell had fancied that he hnd heard a stilled scream and even the rnttliug of the catch upon tho door, but from that Instnnt there had been silence. Tho spot whero ho had stopped tho horses was unfamiliar to him. It wns qulto dark, though a little farther on wero Bevornl cafes, nnd there wero cabs upon tho Btreot Ills own equl pago excited no nttentlon, for thero had been nothing sensational about the ascent of tho hill. Indeed, the run away had created no commotion ex cept upon tho avenuo which had been crossed, and very Httlo even there. Darrell got down from the box, hold ing tbo reins In his hand, and ap proached the door of tho cab. Imme diately the window was lowered, and he saw a woman's face. It Is remarkable, but true, that tbo essence of an adventure changes tho Instant that a beautiful woman ap pears In It Though tho circumstances may bo most unfavorable for romance and the man as cold as ho cSB be and yet live, thero will bo no exception to the rule. When Darrell saw that face nt tho carrlago window, everything wns dif ferent Even tho past was changed, and In an Instant's pauso his sensa tions of tho last ten minutes hurried to rcarrungo themselves. It beenmo a fine thing to havo stolen a enh and a pair of horses In a most unusual man ner and to havo cone careering through 1L ! f ft,?n?l'IWl.ISlSi - 'SS'Sl" """ ' , klrti f jiaMVHtltotXL "ff"" "" ' ffinw niffi'mfwiliw ilk iflmWfrf HBHnMfrMMiHBipiWWpBlffWW DR.

The woman had large and dark eyes, with such a warm touch of hazel In them that it was visible even in so bnd a light. Her fnco was well model ed, strong and full of meaning, tho brows clean cut, the lips rather full nnd deep tinted, tho nostrils dcllcnto and tremulous, as ouo sees thtm best among the Greeks. Itut, upon tho whole, the countenance impressed Dar rell as that of a lady of his own laud, and ho wns greatly surprised to be ad dressed in Itusslan, n language of which he hnd n fair command. "A long way In tho snow," said she and paused, eying htm intently. The words could hnvo no possible relevancy, considering tho season and the surroundings. "In the snow?" repented Darrell. "I nm afraid that I do not understand." "You are not Itusslan," she said In French. "Why have you done this,?" "I don't clearly know whnt I have done," ho replied, "I saw some horses running nway, as I supposed, nnd heard a woman's voice that seemed to call for help, so I stopped the horses, and then the coachman hit me on the head with his whip. So I pitched him off his seat, and then the horses ran away, and hero we are." "We shall bo followed!" she cried. "We must get away from here!" "If I may restore you to your friends" Darrell began. "Tell mo where to drive, and I" "Wo must leave this carriage here," she said, and he, perceiving her Inten tion, opened the door for her, and she btepped out. "Now let us runt" And they ran, Darrell taking tho girl's left arm In his hand ns best he could for she was wrapped In a long cloak and helping her to make good Bpced. They turned nt once Into a darker street and from thnt into another nnd then into a third until Darrell had lost even his notion of the points of tho compass. "I can go no farther." gasped tho girl at last, nsd she kaited upon Dar rell, almost fainting. "You run wol" paid ho.
