Possibly Mr. Guest himseff is responsible for them. A very excitable person at times!" "You had better take me to him, if that is your errand," I said shortly. "This sort of conversation between you and me is rather a waste of time." " Certainly," he answered. " Will you follow me?" We took the lift to the sixth floor, traversed an entire corridor, and then, mounting a short and narrow flight of stairs, arrived at a passage with three or four doors on either side, and no exit at the farther end. We seemed to be entirely cut off from the main portion of the 1. . ^ _ i i r a. : i <1. ^ ii. notei, and i nuiiceu inai mere were iin numbers 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 to pass. "A nice quiet part of the hotel this," my guide remarked, glancing toward me. "Very," I answered dryly. " A man might be hidden here very securely," he added. " I can well believe it," I assented. He knocked softly on the third door on the icil. wuuiuii a vuitc aubwcicu nun. 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. (iuest. Is he awake?" The nurse opened the door a little wider, which I took for an invitation to enter. She closed it softly behind me. My guide remained outside. The room was a small one, and furnished after the usual hotel fashion. The only li>?ht burning was a heavily shaded electric lamp, placed by the bedside. The nurse raised it u 11111c miu IUKKCU uuwu upin iiie IIUIII wiivj lay there motionless. "He is asleep," she remarked. "It is time he took his me'licine. I must 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. 1 think that her face was one of the most unsympathetic which I had ever seen. She poured some medicine into a glass, and turned on another electric light. Her patient woKe at once. Directly ne opened nis eyes, he recognized me with a little start. "You?" he exclaimed. "You?" I sat down on the edge of the bed. "You haven't forgotten mc. then?" I remarked. "I am sorry you are feeling sick. Nothing serious, I hope?" He ignored my words. He was looking at me all the time, as though inclined to doubt the evidence of his senses. " Who let you come up here?" he asked in a whisper. " 1 made inquiries about you, and got permission to come up," 1 answered. "How are you feeling this evening?" " I don't understand why they let you come," he said uneasily. "Stoop down!" i no nurse came iorwaro wun a wineglass. "Will you take your medicine, please?" she said. ''Presently," lie answered. "Put it down." She glanced at the clock and held the glass out once more. " It is past the time," she said. " I have had two doses to-day," he answered. "Quite enough, I think. Set it down and go away, please. I want to talk to this gentleman." "Tnllfino i<s nnt u 1 for vnn " clip c.-iiil without moving. " Better take your medicine an<l go to sleep." He took the glass from her hand, and, with a glance at its contents which puzzled me, drank it olT. "Now will you go?" he asked, handing back the glass to her. She dragged her chair to the bedside. "If you will talk," she said stolidly. " I must watch that you do not excite yourself too much." ii.. ,.i 1 .,4. .. * t i, lie j^imi*_c?i iiRiiiiiu^i v ai inc. x nave private matters to discuss," he said. " You are not well enough to talk of private matters, or anything else important," she declared. "You will excite yourself. You will hring on the fever. 1 remain here to watch. It is by the doctor's orders." She sat down heavily within a few feet of us. " You speak French?" (luest asked me. 1 nodded. "Fairly well." "Watch her! See whether she seems to understand. I want to sj>eak of what she must not hear." She half rose from her chair. As far as her features could express anything, they expressed disquietude. "She does not understand," I said. "Go on." She bent over the bedside. " You must not talk any more," she said. " It excites you. Your temperature is rising." He ignored her altogether. "Listen!" he said to me. " Why they have let you come here I cannot tell. You know that I am in prison?that I am not likely to leave here alive?"

Great things will die with me. God knows what will happen!" "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 them yet."

"They persevere," he murmured. "In Paris? But never mind. They know very well > that that secret, if 1 die before 1 can finish my work, dies with me, or?" 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 bU LclIlV. " It may be only for a moment," I reminded him. "?Or passes on to a successor who will complete my work," he said slowly. "I fear that I shall not find him. The time is too , short now." "Have you no friends I could send for?" I asked. "Not one," he answered. I looked at him curiously. A man does not often confess himself entirely friendless. "I need a strong, brave man," he said slowlv, "one who is not afraid of death, one who has the courage to dare everything in a great cause." "A great cause," I repeated. "They arc few and far between nowadays." He looked at me steadily. "You are an iinglishmant" I laughed. "Saxon to the backbone," I ? admitted. " Vou would consider it a great cause to save your country from ruin, from absolute and complete ruin?" "My imagination," I declared, "cannot conceive such a situation." "A flock of geese once saved an Empire," he said; "a child's little finger in the crack of the dam kept a whole city from destruction.

" \evei mind what I am. Think! Think hard! hy to-morrow you must decide. Are you content with your life? Does it satisfy you ? You have everything else; have you ambition?"

At no time on this occasion had he presented tome 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. "Thev mav trv to kill me; but I have a will, too, anil I say that 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 finger. There was a knock 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 aftd held out my hand. He held it between his for a moment, and his eyes sought mine. i uu win cuiiic iu-iiiuiiuw : "I will come," 1 promised, "to-morrow evening." To be continued next Sunday Synopsis of Preceding Chapters HARDKOSS COURAGE, a young English gentleman, engaged a room at the Hotel Universal, while in London to play a cricket match. As he was about to retire the first night, a man half clothed rushed into his room, hysterically begging not to let his pursuers follow. The latter, two men, burst through the door of a connect ing room, despite Courage's protests, and demanded the right to search the room, saying * that the man they were hunting was a dangerous character. They turned out the lights, and there ensued a terrific fig'it in the darkness, with terrible groans from s >me one. Courage struck one of the assailants, and just before the nuk'e was over thought he heard the rustle of a woman's skirt ami detected an odd perfume; but when he turned on the lights nut a sign of a person was visible. The porter, whom he summoned, insisted that he heard nothing; and the next morning Courage received notice from the hotel management ordering him out for creating a disturbance. He brought the hotel man to terms by explaining his standing and threatening a Scotland Yard investigation. A young woman, with her maid and dog, passed near, exhaling the same perfume that he had noticed in his room the night before. rORK CENTRAL LINES.
