she knew) that she held her jailer at her
mercy. "What does monsieur mean to do wi?h me ?" she quietly said. Dick stared at her gloomily. "If I could do with you what you deserve I would put you In prison," he growled. "Ah, but since monsieur cannot do that, and since he cannot keep me here without sacrificing an innocent young girl who loves and "trusts him? H e Is not sure I speak the truth, I know that well, or it would be easy to decide. Yet If he hesi tates long in making his decision, tho proof that I have lied in no single particu lar will arrive alter a time by post, in a packet so terrible that monsieur will pray for his own death and then it will be too late to wish, in an agony of regret, that he had believed and acted differently." Dick continued to stare at her, frowning. "She has found out what she came on board to find out." he said to himself, and was tempted to tell the woman In so many words what he read In her actions, her words and her baffling eyes but he would not, for fear of putting her on her guard, and afterwards repenting his rashness. "She knew what she wanted to know when she saw the packing case I was fool enough to show her. From that moment she was a different creature bolder, more self-confident. A frightful crime has been committeda crime scarcely paral leled, perhapsand If she wasn't a party to it. at least she is in the secret. She awaited news in Tangier and she heard of the Xenla as a derelict but evidently she expected something more, which didn't happen, and because it didn't happen she was dying for an excuse to get on board, where she hoped to pick up a lost clue. Whether she's pleased with what she has discovered or not, who can tell? But at all events she knew that things were very wrong from her point of view before she came on, and now she's quite ready to go. All she wants of me is permission to leave and an assurance that I'll not meddle any 'further In what concerns her and her friends. That's all but to me it's every thing. To abaandon the search is to give up Eve yet not to abandon ItI daren't think of the alternative if it's true that Eve has been kidnapped." "What is It that you want me to do?" he asked, slowly. "To let me go at once. You know that, monsieur." "And tt I do?" * "I will then send word to those who await a message from me that I am safe, land the girl of your love will also be eafefor to-day." "You talk no more now of *magio rair Irors.' You admit that Miss Markham has 'been kidnapped by your friends." "With that I have nothing to do. As I aid of her, monsieur, I am but an instru ment in powerful hands. If you choose, 'I can be to you an instrument of good. For good or for evilIt must be one or the other. There is nothing between." "You say, if I let you go, she will be 'safe for to-day.' What do you mean by 'that?" "I mean that no harm shall befall her for the present. But unless monsieur leaves Gibraltar and the yacht Xenia, she w ill not be returned to her father, nor can I answer for her safety beyond to-mor row " "What if I leave the Xenia and go to Tangier'" "Monsieur can do that if he likes, pro- \-ided that he does not go before me, nor in the same boat with me, nor send any one to follow me. Not that they would learn anything if they did follow. But I would not permit it " "What, you would trust me to move off the Xenia if you were not on hand to spy and trust me to keep my word if I gave It for a lot of other things?" "I do not need to spy, monsieur. I have my way of finding out, when it is neces sary, as you have seen If monsieur stayed on the Xenla after promising to go away, or If he engaged any person to follow me, or to act in his stead in his present capacity. I should know and it would be his.love who would pay for his bieach of faith " "What, then, do you think my 'capac itv' is on beard this yacht?" "I do nof as a detective. It is simple to see that besides, it is known In the town " "If you know so much, you must also bp aware that it's not in my power to order the authorities here to lea\e the derelict yacht alone " "I do not expect that. But the author ities should be left to act for themselves." "You mean that you're not afraid of them. You don't want interested per sons or experts to engage in investiga tions?" "As to that, you must be of the opinion which pleases you best, monsieur. But time is living. If I do not send my sec ond message early this aftei'noon " "Don't repeat your brutal threats. They sicken me, and would you if you were even half human. Look her, I will make this concession. I'll take you off the Xenia myself into the town, and I will stand by while you send a telegram, of which I won't ask to see the* address. If you can get an answer, with a message dictated by Miss Markham, concerning something which no one but she and I could possibly know, I will believe that your story has truth In it. and rather than risk some foul cruelty to her on the part of your unscrupulous friends I'll let you go back to Tangier scot-free. Do you agree to that?" The woman thought for a moment. "Yes, I agree to that. So far, so good," Bhe said in her odd French. "But after wards, you leave the Xenia? You give up the work you are doing?" "I will answer that question when I have seen a reply to the telegram which X propose your sending." "Very well, monsieur," returned the I think, I know. You are here woman, coolly. And hr readiness in agreeing to the terms Dick had named was not wholly reassuring. H* argued to himself that unless she were reasonably sure of obtaining such & message as he had demanded, she would appear less con fident. Still, there was the hope that she might be "bluffing." It was just as this bargain had been struck that Brown came to the door again and Inquired if he might have a few words of private conversation with Mr. Knight. Dick, not wiBhlng to leave the woman alone, or even turn his back upon her for a moment, was inclined to tell the man that he might speak before her, as she understood no English. But on second thought ho was not so sure that this was fact. She looked like an Italian, and she talked bad French. She had denied all knowledge of English, but that was not to say that she did not possess it. "Send your mate below to look after this wo- man," he said, "and tell him that she isn't to be out of his sight or to touch anything. If she suddenly develops a faculty for speaking his own language and asks questions, he is not to answer them." A s he gave these instructions, Dick kept his eyes fixed on the veiled face. But the woman was looking down at the topaz, which she again held in her hand, and if she understood the words, she was clever enough to show no sign of her feelings. "Aye, aye, sir," said Brown, departing and presently he returned with his mate. Dick then went with him on deck, and found that the captain of the port had sent two men on board to replace those who were retiring. Dick saw the new comers, spoke with them, and told Brown that he and the Moorish woman, who had lately come on board, would go back to shore In the boat which was waiting. Twenty minutes later the young man and the veiled woman were together in the telegraph office at Gibraltar. He strove to calm his fears by repeating that If Eve had been kidnapped there could be no ob ject in harming her, unless as a menaoe of worse to come. In case the 'kidnappers were defied: therefore, if he made conces sions to the enemy, he might, perhaps, hope that there was no Immediate danger for the girl. He had proposed writing out the telegram according to his own ideas but the woman objected, on the plea that the person for whom it was in tended could read neither French, Eng lish, German nor Italian, the only modern languages in which Dick was proficient. Whether she told the truth he could not know, but he was obliged to take her word, and trust her to wire what she ohose, since if she followed a message written out by him, he would have no means of judging if it were a true copy. After all, he was principally concerned with th'e answer, which must be what he required, or the enemy could expect noth ing from him. The next few hours were among the most wearisome of Dick's life. H e would not allow the woman to go out of his sight, lest she should slip away. She of fered no protest against this dogged sur veillance, but the time must have been tedious for her as well as for him. Now that the violence which Knight had done to her disguise had informed him that she was not Moorish, there was no further need for acting on her part. She could take Christian food, and was apparently glad to have it. though she would not lift her veil and eat openly in a restaurant She allowed Dick to buy her food, and managed to dispose of fruit and biscuits surreptitiously, while he beguiled a part of the time before an answer could arrhe at the Poate Restante by having a late luncheon at the old restaurant. At last the woman announced that her friends might have had time to reply. Together she and Dick went to ask for the response, which was to be addressed simply to "Lola, Poste Restante, Gibral tar " It was she who inquired at the window, and when it appeared that the message had come, it was she who took and opened it, while Dick stood by. "You cannot read this for yourself," she said to him, "but I will translate, and you will be able to tell whether any one but you and the beautiful goung lady could kjiow the thing of which she speaks. She bids you remember what happened when you laid a blue cloak around her shoulders in moonlight, on the deck of her father's yacht, on a night not to be for gotten. And if what you said then was true, you will try to save her quickly, for she is in great fear and danger." The blood rushed up to Dick's forehead. He did so well remember the scene which those words conjured up! He would re member and think of It, it seemed to him, if he were dying. No one on earth but Eve Markham could have sent that mes sage, for only he and she had been actors In that blessed scene. Afterwards, Sir Pe ter had Interrupted it but he had not been on the deck of the Lily Maid when Dick Knight put Eve's blue cloak round her bare white shoulders and the moon had shone Into her eyes as she looked_up.

As a continuation of the story of "Robin Hood" the inter est should be equally as great as in that famous success. It is probably more elaborate in mounting, the stage effects with the transformation from English woodland and market town ln the orient will be a continuous feast for the eye. Yet the melody will constantly awaken the memories of "Robin Hood" and his revels in Sherwood Forest, and the music throughout has been voted worthy of that gem of comic opera. Into "Maid Marian" De Koven and Smith have introduced all the familiar characters of "Robin Hood" and have im parted to them something* like a sequence as figures in that notable composition. The spirit of English romance in mediae - eval times still colors the story. W e now have Robin Hood at the opening of the scene of the new opera, announced as having taken his part as a soldier in the crusades to the Holy Land in obedience to the command of the valiant Richard, the king of lion-hearted fame. It is on the eve of his wedding to Maid Marian that he has received his summons from the monarch, and has named Marian as his heir in the event of his death in battle and has selected Friar Tuck and Will Scarlett as her protectors while she lives on the estate which has come to him in recog nition of his rights as the true Earl of Huntington. But in his absence the wily old sheriff of Nottingham renews his old time plotting he fills Marian's ears with suspicions of Robin's faithlessness, and labors to induce her to give her hand to Guy of Gisborne, his foolish dupe. The melancholy Marian, already pining over the separation from her lover, finally re solves to go herself to the Holy Land with Friar Tuck and Scarlett and Little John and Alan-a-Dale, and thither she is followed by the sheriff. Of the Original Bostonlans at the Metropolitan, Jan. 26, 27, 28. The sheriff's adventures among the Sar acens and his flirtations with an odalisque of rotund girth, who turns out to be the friar in disguise, furnish the humor of the second act. Maid Marian and the faithful friar have fallen into the hands of Mussulmen then the maid is restored to Robin Hood, who appears for the first time, but the Saracens fall upon the Cru saders' carrip and carry off the lover as a result of the wily sheriff's machinations with the enemy. The unhappy Maid Ma rian is taken back to England by the scheming old reprobate, who points out to her the folly of bemoaning the fate of Robin Hood and the wisdom of marrying Guy.

"Robin Hood" will be the opening bill on Monday evening and wil be repeated at the Wednesday matinee. "San Toy" at the Metropolitan. At the Metropolitan "San Toy," a musi cal comedy of the English type, is to com mence a short engagement next Thursday night. While the English are not noted for their sense of humor, it will be admit ted that they have written the best musi cal plays, and "San Toy" is one of their very best products. In London it scored a tremendous hit, an experience which was repeated in New York. The musical comedy, as it is known to-day, was first exploited in this country by the late Au gustin Daly. On his gaining a foothold on British territory and securing ,a theater }n London, Daly organized a company for the presentation of musical .comedy which was to alternate in his two theaters with the dramatic stock company. It has since his death been kept together on the same lines. Since the inception of the organ ization, quite a number of these English musical comedies have been, given, among them being "The Circus Girl," "The Gaiety Girl," "The Runaway Girl," "The Geisha" and "San Toy." All have been distin guished by the daintiness and catchiness of the music and the popularity they have attained. "San Toy" is one of the very best its career ln New York is chiefly remarkable from the fact that it is the only attraction of its kind that ever had three long engagements at different times on Broadway. It is being: presented this Season under the same management and by much the same cast. "San Toy, or the Emperor's Own" is in two acts book by Edward Morton lyrics by Harry Greenbank and Adrian Ross score by Sidney Jones, w^th five numbers by Lionel Monckton. | The story is that San Tcy, the daughter of Yen How, a mandarin, p passed off to the emperor as a boy, la, order to keep her out of the emperor's household. San Toy, however, falls in lote with the son of the British consul, and the emperor, learning this, suspects thatpll is not right, and summons San Toy arid her father to-| curtate,- and depends upon no antedated ,j begins its revelations at the rising of the court. After a number of entanglements the emperor finds out the truth, but per- ~ 'ts San Ty to marry her Englishman The story is well told and abounds in clever situations, the lyrics being particu larly bright and singable. Fun has been scattered with lavish hand. Among the best of the musical numbers may, be men tioned: In the first act, the songs, "Love Has Come from Lotus Land" and "The Lady's Maid" the duets, "A. B, C," "When You Are Wed to Me," and "%mee Gamee" the quartet, "Pynka Pong" The Six Little Wives," and the beautiful concerted number, "The Moon." In the second act Mr. Monckton has the songs. "Chinese Sojer Man," "Rhoda and Her Pagoda" and "It's Nice to Be a Boy," as well as the quartet, "Back to Lon- don." Other good numbers in this act are "Pletty Littee Chinese," "The Little China Maid," "The Emperor's Own," and a topical song with some real wit in Its lines, "I Mean to Introduce It into China." There Is but one company playing "San Toy," the original "Augustin Daly Mu sical company." Among the people are Samuel Collins, George K. Fortescue, Sa rony Lambert, Hobart Smock, Nagle, Bar ry, Joseph Cauto, Isobel Hall, Nellie Lynch, Norah Lambert and a large cho rus, numbering in all over sixty-five peo- pie. The instrumental music will be a feature of the performance, the local or chestra and the one carried by the com pany being combined under the leadership of the veteran John Braham. "Pip Van Winkle." The Ferris Stock company at the Ly ceum will produce for next week Joe Jefferson's greatest success, "Rip "Van Winkle," the ideal American comedy drama. The story' of "Rip' has been told for the past fifty years and it is a represen tative American play that never grows old. It is the human quality of Rip Van Winkle that makes him loved of all who have ever known him. His unfailing good humor, his native shrewdness, his o'er weenlng fondness for "schnapps," his love for children, his stories to soften his wife's heart and his utter irresponsi bilityall these are but items in the hu manness of the man. In that wonderful act in the mountains where Rip runs afoul of Hendrick Hud son and his crew, this quality is brought out in colors that contrast brightly with the somber silence of the phantom bowl ers. Rip's efforts to get on a friendly footing with the strange men he has met, seem almost pathetic in the yearning for human comradeship they reveal. Indeed, the comedy of this impersonation all through is of that sublimated kind that lies on the borderland of pathos. The company is admirably cast: Ben Johnson will characterize the lazy, shift less drunkard, Rip Van Winkle Robert Folsom will be seen as Derrick Von Beek man, G. C. Gunther is cast as Nick Ved der, Herbert Brenort as Cockles, Miss Dora Home is cast in the character of Gretchen, Master Harry Cour as Little Heindrlch Veeder, Little Meenie Van Winkle will be played by Baby Blessing. Will D. Corbett plays the character of Heinrichf Veeder, Miss Maisie Cecil as Meenie Van Winkle, Hendrick Hudson will be played by Otis Dobson. The first act shows the village of Fall ing Water act second the home of Rip act three is laid in the mountains of the Catskills, and act four, the first scene, is the awakening of Rip after twenty years scenes two and fqiir, at the home of Beekman scene three, again the village of Falling Water, and the last scene is in the drawing-room of Beekman's house. This scenery will have the careful at tention characteristic of the Ferris pro ductions, and the scene in the Catskills will be indeed a grand spectacle. The usual matinees will be given throughout the week on Tuesday, Thurs day and aSturday afternoons. On Tues day afternoon every lady will be presented with a beautiful ivorytype of some mem ber of the company, and the children in the gallery "will be remembered with a button. "The Heart of Maryland." "The Heart of aMryland" is announced for a series of performances at the Bijou this week, beginning to-morrow, Sun* day matinee. ' There is one conspicuous merit in David Belasco's war play, "The Heart bf Maryland," that deserves appreciative recognition, and that is the rapidity of its action and ~ directness and simplicity bf its story.

Through many seasons the tours of "The Heart of Maryland" have extended its visits so that its numerous perform ances encircle the entire round of the union and one of the most welcome of the leading standard attractions of the time. In its present tour it appears with an added consideration of interest. It comes with a new and specially en gaged company of metropolitan players to strengthen the cast and give a greater significance to the individuality of the principal characters. - In the leading role, Maryland Culvert, Miss Alma Kruger has endowed the char acter with a charm of expression, a dra matic and passionate force and heroic personality which renders her perform- ances second only to that of Mrs. Leslie Carter, for whom the play was originally written. In the cast Herbert Bostwlck appears as Colonel Fulton Thorpe Tefft John son, as Colonel Alan Kendrick B. J. Mur phy, as General Hugh Kendrick Francis Justice as Lloyd Calvert W. B. Murray as Sergeant Blount Thomas Lowell as Tom Boone Rowland Hill as Lieutenant Telfair, and the Misses Anna Wynne as Nancy McNair, and Florence Foster as Mrs. Claibourne Gordon. "The High Rollers." Of the many burlesque and vaudeville I shows yearly placed upon the road, few attract more than passing attention. The "High Rollers," one of the most success ful productions, Is one of those few that have made everywhere a mdst pronounced success. This is duo to the fact that none but the best entertainers find room on the bill and consequently the perform ance is one of solid merit from beginning to end. I n the "Heart of New York" is an. original burlesque farce. In this, the many comedians, and other members of the company have an excellent oppor tunity for Introducing characters new to the stage, and this is done in a man ner at onde artistic and interesting.
