she knew) that she held her jailer at her
"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,
"And tt I do?" *
"I will then send word to those who
await a message from me that I am safe,

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

\-ided that he does not go before me, nor

"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

"I do not need to spy, monsieur. I have

"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
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.

things of the season. 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. In the final scene a Twelfth Night

seventy others, ballet and chorus. "Robin
Hood" will be the opening bill on Monday
evening and wil be repeated at the
"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
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
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

"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
