SYNOPSIS OF PRECEDING CHAPTERS.
Jlra Breakspear, an es-Coloratlo rancher, who
has distinguished himself aa a Yeoman In the
South African war, and Is being feted In London
society, intends running down to Brighton to
a Vivian Oakley, a girl ho had met at several
*'at homes," but misses his train. Sttolling
about Victoria station he lights upon a room In
Which a sale of derelict property is being con
ducted, and is led by curiosity to bid his whole
Tillable money (20) f,or an old portmanteau,
iqarked wi hta Maltese cross, and its contents.
He finds by incidents on the way home that
some person or persons are eager by any meaus
to procure possession of his purchase. On ar
riving at his lodging^ he examines his prize
and finds costumes of various nationalities, all
marked with the Maltese cross a death mask
taken from some person who seemed to have
come to a violent end, a photograph, a coil of
golden hatr and five sheets of paper covered
with mysterious allusions to various localities,
dates and suras -of money.
CHAPTER II. (Continued.)
What Breakspear Found In the Portman
teau.
The month was April, but the day was
cold, and Breakspear sat down In a big,
shabby easy chair by the remains of what
once had been his sitting-room fire, and
with an ancient but beloved briarwood
pipe between his white teeth, endeavored
to think out the situation.
By this time he had lost all interest in
the trip to Brighton. He had not only
forgotten that he had imagined himself
on the point of falling In rove with Vivien
Oakley, but, had he been accused of such
a thing, would strenuously and with abso
lute belief in his own word, have denied
It. He no longer wished to go to Brighton.
There would be far more pleasure to be
got from staying in town and watching for
developments in the affair of the port
manteau, and this pleasure he decided to
Indulge himself in taking. But, of course,
he must write to Miss Oakley, who would
be expecting himif she thought of him
at alland tell her that he was "un-
avoidably prevented" from doming.
In spite of Jim Breakspear's extreme
good looks, which would have made many
men unbearably conceited, he was a mod
est felow, and that was the* way he put
the matter to himself in regard to Miss
Oakley. She would have a right to ex
pect himif she thought about him at all.
And he hardly believed that she would
think about him much.- She was so pop
ular and handsome, and had so many
other chaps dangling around her, every
one of them more important in the social
scale than an ex-cowboy and volunteer
of Yeomanry. Stil, he would write a let
ter this evening, and she would get it in
the morning. Perhaps he would send her
some flowers, too.
Having resolved upon .this course, Jim
Gould not resist taking out the photo
graph and curl and looking at them again.
It seemed to him that the girl's face was
even more divine than he had considered
It at first. Life would hardly be worth liv
ing unless he were doing all he could
moving heaven and earthto find her.
When he had thought and smoked for
a time, he packed the contents of the
portmanteau in their old places, with the
exception of the photograph and the
memoranda. Even the grim death mask
went back into, its napkin and its paper
wrappings. Then he pushed the port
manteau into a deep Wardrobe built into
the wall and locked the door. The key
he slipped into his pocket. It was not
until after all this was done that he
WTote the letter to Miss Oakleya short
letter, hypocrltlcaly saying how sorry he
was not to be able to see her as he had
hoped.
It was dull dining in even the best lodg
ings alone, and Breakspear was in the
habit of going to some restaurant when
he had no invitation for the evening but
to-night he felt that it would be more
congenial to his mood to stop at home.
Already it was getting on towards his
usual dinner hour, and he had given no
orders but his landlady and his landlady's
cook were accommodating souls (they
Teally admired him Immensely and would
have done anything for him, had he been
aware of that), and he would ask for no
more than a cutlet or something simple of
the sort.
So he rang, and made his request to the
servant who answered the bell. He would
like dinner at eightanything would do
meanwhile he was going out on an errand.
The errand was to post Miss Oakley's
letter and buy her some flowers. He did
not know what her favorites were, but
she was an expensive-looking girl, the
sort of girl who made a man feel she
would like best the things which cost
the most money, whether they were the
prettiest things or not. Owing to the cold,
lilac had not yet begun to blossom in
England therefore It was not to be had
cheap. Jim bought quantities of white
lilac, and dozens of pink and pale pur
ple orchids. If a peace offering were re
quired, he hoped that the big box he
sent off. to the country house near Brigh
ton would be accepted as-such.
He liked dressing for dinner, whether
he was to be alone or in company, and he
dressed, to-night with the photograph of
the unknown propped up against the mliv
ror before which he tied his necktie. And
when he had bought Mis3 Oakley's flow
ers, he had been sentimental enough to
bring home some for the picture, to be
placed as if before a shrine. It had been
comparatively easy to choose for Miss
Oakley, but nothing seemed good enough
for the beautiful unknown, whom he pre
tended, in a boyish way, he was enter
taining as his guest. She was not of the
type who would lika things because a
good deal of money had been spent upon
them ' so at last he had selected for her
shrine the flowers which he himself liked
bestfragrant, moon-^white day lilies such
as she held in the photograph.
When he was dressed, ho filled a vase
with water and put the lilies inrft. The
vase he placed on the table already set
for his dinner and when the depressed
"man-servant" had brought in the de
sired cutlet and departed, Breakspear
poised the photograph among the lilies,
where it shone out fairer than they
"I shall get a good frame for it to
morrow," he said to himself. "One of
those 'pretty things with turquoises stud
ded all over them that I saw in Bond
street the other morning. It wouldn't be
too large for my pocket in one of those
keep it there. I wouldn't stir out of the
house unlets I took it with me. One can't
tell, after to-day, what might happen."
With his eyes on the photograph, he
raised a glass of wine to his lip3. "I
drink to you, beautiful princess," he ex
claimed, aloud, "and to my own luck
luck to find you. Luck to win you," he
was about to finish, when a knock came
on the door. Hastily he set down the
wineglassso hastily that a few red drops
were spilt on the tablecloth, and involun
tarily his hand went out to snatch away
the photograph, which was far too sacred
to be seen by the eyes of a stupid ser
vant blundering in when he was not
wanted.
But the impatient one outside did not

wait for the knock to be answered. Be
fore Breakspear had disposed of his glass
and reached the photograph in its frame
of lilies, the door was opened. Jim looked
towards it with a frown of vexation, and
then the blood rushedr up to his forehead
in a wave. It was not a servant who
stood on the threshold. It was the per
son of all others In the world whom he
would have expected least.

to you, Miss Oakley, whether I went or
stopped at home."
"And now that I've come here to your
roomsaloneto ask a favor of you I'd
ask of no other man, do you still think
your comings and goings are so completely
indifferent to me?"
Vivien Oakley's voice was Boft and se
ductive as she asked to question, which
would have thrilled thru the warm blood
In Breakspear's veins only last night but
now another face seemed t have come
between him and hex-,
into cold insignificance for one man at
least.
"Now, I hope that you seally think of
me as a friend," he said.
Her eyes dropped, and she bit her lip.
"That is true," she answered, in a tone
less voice. "But I am keeping you wait
ing all this time to know what is the ser
vice I have to ask of you. Perhaps, tho,
you have guessed? I want you to drive
with me to that house where I dare not
go alone. Will you?"
"Of course. If that is all the 'service,'
as you call It, I wish there were more to
shew you how much I would do for you.
Are we to go now?"
"Yes, nownow!" cried Miss Oakley,
suddenly showing signs of impatience.
"And when the errand Is done, you will
take me home, where I am to spend tne
night. My uncle thinks I am dining with
the Brandon-Paynes. My friends at Red
Down Hall think that my uncle wasn't
well, and that I came to Bee for myself
how he was. So you see I have been
obliged to tell some fibs. But no matter.
Nothing matters, really! Ond now we
will go. I ought not to have delayed so
long, for every minute counts. You are
very good to come, and you will be still
more good to make haste. Your hat and
coat? Oh, there they are, on that sofa.
You must have been going out on some
affair of your ownand I've Interfered."
As she spoke, she moved quickly away
from the fireplace and stood by the table,
resting one hand upon it. To take the
curl and the photograph, and put them
in his pocket as he wished to do, would
have necessitated reaching past Miss
Oakley, and drawing her attention to the
fact. Yet Breakspear could hardly make
up his mind to go out of the house leav
ing his treasures where they were, to be
stared at by the servant who would come
in to clear away his dinner. While he
debated what to do, he crossed the room
and picked up his coat and hat. By this
time he had quite decided how to act.
He opened the door, and let his beautiful
visitor pass out, making as if to follow
her. Then, appearing to remember him
self, he exclaimed:
"Oh, by the way, there's something I
must go back for. I won't be an instant."
"But an instant is too long, if you are
as anxious to help me as you said,"
pleaded Vivien, laying a detaining hand on
his arm. "Please don't go back for any
thing. I shall think it'will bring us bad
luck for our expedition. You know it's
horribly unlucky to return for a thing
forgotten when you are starting away.
Pleaseplease! You promised uncondi
tionally to do anythinganything I
asked."
What could Breakspear do? There was
nothing for it but to set his teeth to
gether and humor her, or break his word.
So he chose the former course. But he
wondered grimly how he could ever for
a moment have Imagined himself on the
road to love Miss Oakley. She did not
appear even pretty to him now. He
thought her an unreasonable, petulant,
silly, superstitious woman, and he wished
that his mission for her was over, and he
at home againwith the photograph.
But at least it was still in his power
to safeguard the latter from irreverent
hands. In the entrance hall of the house
was the servant whose business it was to
attend to the door, and with him Break
spear left hasty Instructions that on no
account was his table to be cleared until
his return. Nothing in the sitting room
was to be touched during his absence.
Leaving this message required but the
fraction of a minute and at the minute's
end Miss Oakley and he were together in
the cab which had been waiting for-her
during the quarter hour of her visit in
Seymour street.
A few hours ago, the prospect of a long
drive alone in a hansom cab with Vivien
Oakley, after dark, would have seemed
to Breakspear a delicious adventure.
The he was not exactly in love, and might
have been sorry next day for what he had
done in a moment of impulse, he would
very likely have told her that he cared
for her. To-night, however, he was in
a fever of impatience when he heard that
he was to drive out as far as the Boltons.
It would be an age before he could get
back to that dear, shining curl and the
photograph.
Nevertheless, he managed to hide all
traces of his selfish annoyance and to do
this ought not to have been difficult, for
never In her life had Miss Oakley been
more charming. She was keyed to a high
pitch of excitementit was easy to see
that, tho she kept herself splendidly in
handbut she was still able to bring all
the electric battery of her fascinations
to bear upon Breakspear. For a few
moments she would be bright and witty,
just to remind" him that he was with a
clever young woman of the world who
knew how to drop diamonds from her lips
when she chose. Then, not to let him
forget that she was a girl, who had flung
herself upon his chivalry, her manner
would soften into pathos.
She did not attempt to explain the
mystery of her errand, but by dropping
several hints that she was almost risking
a scandal for a dear, dear friend, she let
it be plainly seen that the concealment
was merely for the friend's sake, not her
own at all, and gave Breakspear a chance
to guess how self-sacrificing was her
friendship. If a woman had in her such
depth of feeling for a friend, what would
she be when her love was awakened?
That was the question that Jim ought to
have asked himself, but he did not. He
was wondering whether those idiots of
servants in Seymour street had let his
treasures alone.
To be continued to-morrow.
CHAPTER III.
'it
The Key and the Label.
"Miss Oakley!" Jim exclaimed, spring
ing from his chair and going towards her,
more conscious of the photograph among
the lilies and the lock of glittering copper
hair on the white tablecloth than of the
lady's charms.
Yet she was charming, and had never
been more so, perhaps, than now as she
stood hesitating on the threshold, the
hardness which was the one defect of
her face softened into blushing embar
rassment.
She was In evening dresa, white and
gold, under a long cloak of primrose yel
low. Her hair, piled high on her small
head and elaborately waved, was primrose
yellow, too and her large eyes, under
long lashes which her enemies declared to
be artificially darkened were yellow
brown as topazes. Her skin was marble
white, save for the thin coral thread of
her lips (some peoplewomen of course)
doubted that nature alone was to be
thanked for the perfect complexion) and
altogether, she was this evening a sym
phony in yellow and white from the crown
of her pale gold head to the brighter gold
of a slipper which showed a pointed gleam
under the folds of her trailing dress.
After her striking beauty, one noticed
next about Vivien Oakley what essen
tially "good form" she was how correct
every detail that makes all the difference
between a woman of the "smart" world
and one who only tries to copy such wom
en. She did not look at all the sort of
girl to call upon young men in their
lodgings, yet here she was, this exquisite
creature who was supposed at this mo
ment to be amusing herself and others in
a gay country-house near Brigton. But
it would only embarrass her the more to
betray how much her visit had surprised
him, and Jim controlled the astonish
ment in face and voice after his first ejac
ulation.
She saw the change, and understood it.
"O, it is no use to pretend you are not
surprised!" she exclaimed. "But don't be
more shocked than you can help. I am
paying you a great compliment."
"Don't you think I appreciate that?"
retorted Breakspear. He would have been
at his ease and rather enjoying the unu
sual situation If he had had time to hide
away the curt of hair and the photograph.
But as he drew Miss Oakley into the
room, his quickened self-consciousness
told him that a swift glance of hers had
stopped at the pictured face among the
lilies. At this, he rated himself for a
fool because the blood would rush up to
his forehead as if he had been a school
boy yet the more he tried the less he
could prevent the flush from spreading
and he knew that the lady's gaze had
transferred itself from the photograph to
him. Each could read the other's thought
yet nothing could be said of It on either
side.
Miss Oakley ignored the chair which her
host offered (out of sight of what the
lilies framed), and moved across the room
to the fireplace. Whether or not this
fact had been in her mind, from the
chosen place of vantage the photograph
could be plainly seen, the extraordinary
beauty of the face, which might have been
missed at a greater distance, offering Its
own explanation of Its presence on a young
man's dinner table. Matters would, how
ever, only have been rendered worse by
removing the picture now, and it had to
remain where it was also the curl of hair
which could hardly hope to pass unno
ticed.
"I came to you because I felt so sure
I might depend upon your friendship,"
Miss Oakley went on, in a slightly
changed voice. "I knew you wouldn't
misunderstand me, and I thought you
would be ready to help me. There aren't
many men a woman could come to in
such a way as this, but I was sure you
werethe only one among all the men
I know." "You say you thought all this of me,"
echoed Jim. "Don't you think it still?"
"Oh, I suppose so!" she exclaimed.
"Onlyit, seems so much worse than I
had imagined, now that I'm actually here.
It was most audacious of me to come, I
know. But you are audacious. Do you
sympathize with the same quality in
others?" .
"I like courage, whether In men or
women," said Breakspear. "But tell me
what I can do for you. I promise you
that you may depend upon me, whatever
it is."
"You promise me that without even
knowing what I mean to ask?"
"Yes." Jim looked straight into hereyes.
It was a reckless promise, but it was from
a man to a woman who had taken ah un
usual step in applying to him for,help.
"Thank you, thank you!" She spoke
warmly, yet her voice was curiously
strained, and the expression of her topaz
eyes matched it. "I must go to a house
where I dare not go alone. It Is only
to leave a letter, butI must take the
letter myself. You see, it is for a friend
a friend whom I could not refuse when
I heard that it was almost a question of
life or death. I came from Brighton on
purpose to do this thing "
"Then I very nearly passed you on the
way!" impulsively broke in Jim.
To his surprise, she gave a quick start,
her yellow eyes opening wide and dilat
ing, their look fixed on him as if in chal
lenge. "What do you mean?" she cried.
"Why, I only meant that I was on the
point of starting for Brighton this after-
noon,," Breakspear explained. "If I had
gone our trains would perhaps have
passed eaqh other. But I'm very glad I
didn't go, as things have turned out."
Still her face was sharpened and eager.
"Why are you very glad?"
If he had told the whole, unconventional
truth, he would have answered: "Because
if I'd gone I should have missed securing
a great treasure, and falling in love with
the most beautiful girl in the worldthe
finding of whom is likely to lead me a
strange dance."
But Instead he only told the "conven
tional truth," saying that he rejoiced in
having remained in town because of the
opportunity afforded him of seeing and
serving Miss Oakley.
"If that Is the only reason you're glad"
not to have gone to Brighton," she re
plied, "you will keep your word and gc
to-morrow." Her eyes were on his face.
"II am afraid that's Impossible," he
stammered, uncomfortably. "The fact is,
I wrote you a letter not long ago, telling
you how awfully sorry I was not to be
able to see you in Brighton after all."
"Tfet you came near going, you say, this
afternoon?"
"Yes. That was before Ierknew
about the business which will keep me in
town."
"Oh, I see!" She spoke drily. "But
suppose your going to Brighton was in
cluded in the promise you've allowed me
to exact from you?"
"In that case, I should lay aside my
business and go. But I haven't flattered
myself that it could make any difference

We often speak of this as "The Big Carpet Store.'' We
don't do it for the fun of bragging, for mere brag repels people
instead of attracting them. There's abetter reason. Most peo-

do buy them it is only right that they should go where they are
most sure to find just what they want. This carpet store is the
oldest in the city and has been growing steadily all its life,.
"The Big Carpet Store" is a true name for it.

Glad to talk with you on this
subject.
We have never before seen so many ladies come back here for
their suits after looking through other stores. Wh y do they do
it? We have a good opinion of our own stock and have ex-
pressed it freely, but that would not cut much figure unless the
ladies shared it. They evidently do share it when they have
made comparisons. It is partly due to the styles, partly to the
variety and partly to the price. Why, one lady was kind
enough to report that she had even canvassed St. Paul. There
she happened to find the exact duplicate to one of our suits, but
the price was about $3 higher. So you see our story is not all
^advertising talk." Such things were happening before we
announced the last batch of a hundred suits. Now there is
another hundred to report. Here are two of them.
