"Larsaa a genfus, we are aware; be might be able to de ceive a detective, a Journalist, a r forter. and even a Rouietabille; be might etea deceive a friend under some circumstances. I admit. Bat be could never deceive a daughter' so far tbat abe would take blm for ber father. Tbat ought to reassure yoa as to M. Stangerson.

Robert Darzac which I have never expected to fasten Upon him in order to base my argument against the pos sibility a little more solidly. If Rob ert Darsac were Larsaa, Larsaa would not have appeared on several occa sions to Mathilda Stangerson. for It Is tbe apparition of Laraan that baa cre ated a g-uif between Mathilda Stanger son and Robert Danae" Pshawr I cried.

The other two old women are the other two mothers." "And Old Bobr I asked. "No, dear boy, no!" scoffed Rouieta bille. almost angrily. "Not he either. Tou bave noticed that be wean a wig. suppose.

(D PUT my bead ouof tbe window on waking next morning. Mme. Edith waa walking In tbe court, chatting carelessly with Roule- tabiile and twisting the stem of a beautiful rose between ber pretty fin gers. I followed Rouietabille, whom I saw on bis way to make bis Inspection of the square tower. I found him quite calm and entirely master of aim self and also entirely tbe master of bis eyes. . It was worth while to see the manner in which be looked at ev ery thing around blm! Nothing es caped him. . ' And tbe square tower, tbe abode of the Lady In Black, was the object of bis constant surveillance. When M. and Mme. Darzac wen not In their apartment, the only key which opened the door was In the keeping of the Bernien, and it waa a special kind of key made purposely for tbe room within the last twenty-four boon m a place which no one but Rouietabille knew. He bad let no one Into tbe secret. . . . . Rouietabille wished tbat the watch might be kept also upon tbe. rooms of Old Bob, but the latter swore that he would not be treated like 'a pris oner, and be said tbat on no account would be give up the privilege of go ing and coming to bis own rooms when be saw fit without asking the keys from the lodge keepen. Mme. Edith had said,, with ber lips pressed together lit a narrow little line, "Bat; M. Rouietabille, my' uncle doesn't think that any one is coming to carry blm away T' Rouietabille, after asking after tbe health of Mere Bernler, wbo waa gath ering; up potatoes and patting them In a bag, .requested Pere Bernler to open the door of the-Darsac room. - : Tbla waa the lint time that X had entered the apartment. Tbe atmos- pbere was almost freexing. Tbe large room, furnished with simplicity, con tained a bed and a toilet table placed at one of tbe two openings In the wall around which there had formerly been loopholes. Tbe two windows were fit ted with ban of Iron between which one could scarcely .pass one's arm. Op posite In the angle of the tower was a panel. It would bave been Impossible for any one y hide in this chamber nn less behind this paneL And the Bernien had received orden to look every time tbey visited tbe room both behind the panel and in tbe closet where Danae Jaung his clothes. When we passed Into the sleeping room of Mme. Darxac wo were abso lutely' certain that we had left noth ing behind us of which we did not know; . . . V v Mme. Darzac'b . room was smaller than than tbat of ber husband. But It was bright and well lighted from the way that tbe windows were plac ed. Aa soon as we set foot over the threshold I saw Rouietabille turn pale, and be turned to me and said: ' "Sainclair, do yoa perceive tbe per fume of tbe Lady In Black r I did not. I perceived nothing at all. ' Rouietabille, after having looked un der the bed. gave tbe signal for de parture and motioned ' aa ' from tbe room. He lingered for a moment, but no longer. Bernler locked tbe door with the tiny key, which he pat In his Inside pocket and tightly buttoned his coat over it. We made tbe tour of the corridors and also tbat of Old Bob's apartment, which consisted of a bedroom and sitting room, aa easy to examine and as incapable of biding' any one aa those ot the Daraacs. - In abort and In fact, nothing: es caped Rouietabille, and when we had made tbe rounds of the square tower we bad left no one behind as save M. and Mme. Bernler. One would bare said. too. that then could have been no human being In the apartment of the Darzacs before Bernler, a few min utes later, opened the door to Daft cac himself, as I am now about to re late. It was almost 5 o'clock when, leav ing Bernler in his corridor In front of the door of the Danacs room, Rouie tabille and myself foand ourselves again In the court. At that moment we climbed to tbe platform of the ancient tower at B. We seated vonelTes upon the parapet. At that moment we noticed upon the edge of the Banna Gnnde the dis turbed and . wrathful countenance of Old Bob. His shadow waa the only dark thing about. By what prodigious anachronism it was tbat this modern scholar with his coat and bat In tha height of fashion should be moving about, grotesque and ghoulish, In front of this cavern 800,000 yean old formed by tbe ardent lava to serve as the first roof for tbe first family In the first Aays of the world! 'We could see him bnndlshing his skull as he had done at the table, and we could hear him laugh, laugh, laugh. It tore our ean and our hearts. Our attention was drawn to Danae, who waa coming through tbe postern of the gardener. He did not see us. He was not laughing! Rouietabille felt the deepest pity for him, for he saw that he was at the end of his endur ance. In the afternoon he bad said to my friend, who now repeated the words to me: "Eight days Is too much! I do not believe that I csa bear this torment for eight days!" We followed blm with our eyes to the door of. the square tower. We could see from bis looks tbat be could endure no more. Well. M. Darsac a little after this gave me cause to expe rience tbe most frightful thrill of ter ror which could freeze human bones. Darzac went straight to tbe squan tower, when, ot course, be found Ber nler, wbo opened the door for him. 1909 PERSONAL THERK TS.

As ierijici' uau ucu netting couutant guard before the door of the room, as he bad kept the key In bis pocket and as we bad proved by our Investigation that tbe place was .empty when we had left tt we had established tbe fact that when Danae entered his roeen then could be no one else there. ABd tbla Is the tmth. At the moment that we saw Danae go V bis room we beard a clock strike 6. . Rouietabille and I remained chatting upon the platform of the tower B for another hour. Suddenly ,- my friensl struck me a little tap on. the shoul der and exclaimed, . "For my part I think ' And then, without complet ing tbe sentence, be started for the square tower. I followed him. He thought of Men Bernler s bag of potatoes which he emptied out on tbe white floor of tbe room to tbe great amazement of tbe good woman; then, satisfied with this act, which evidently corresponded to tbe state of bis mind, be returned with me, while behind us wo con id bear Fere Bernler laughing aa he picked up the potatoes. . . As we reached the court we aaw the' face of Mme. Daxsacappearing for a moment at the window of the room oc cupied by her father on the first story of la Louve. . The heat had become Insupportable. We were threatened with -a violent atornvand we believed that It would begin to lighten immediately and re lieve us. , ' . . ' A few drops of water had begun to fan. We turned to the door of !. Da rue's room. Bernler waa smoking his pipe in. the Corridor, sitting astride a chair.' "Ia M. Darzac . still then?" naked Rouietabille. . ' . "He haant stirred since he went in," Bernler replied. ; ' --. . We knocked. We heard tbe heavy libit dnwn from the Inside. (These bolts can only be used by the person within the room.) .: Danae waa writing letters when we entered..- He had been seated beside a little reading table facing the doer. Now mark well all our movements. Aouletabnie complained that tffe let ter which he bold la his band con firmed the telegram which he bad re ceived la the morning and pressed him to return to Paris. His paper Insisted upon his proceeding at once to Russia. Danae read indifferently. ttm, two or three letters which we had brought him and put .them In his pocket. 1 now held out to Rouietabille a letter which I had received. It was from' my friend in Paris, who. after having given me some important details re garding the depart are of Brignolles. Informed me that the latter had left his address for mall to be forwarded to Sospel. the Hotel des Alps. This was extremely Interesting, and Darsac and Rouietabille were greatly excited over It- We decided to go to Sospel as soon as it could be arranged, and we went oat of the room. The door of Mme. Darzaca sleeping room was not closed. " I have mentioned tbat Mme. Danae waa not In her own room. Then the three of as went oat of the squan tower, leaving Pere Bernler In his corridor like the good . watchdog tbat he never ceased to be until tbe last day of bis life. It waa about half paBt 6 O'clock when. In emerging from the square tower, we went to pay a visit to Old Bob In the nund tower, Rouietabille, Darzac and I. As soon as we entered tbe low basement Darzac uttered an exclamation of surprise at seeing the destruction which bad been wrought upon a wash drawing upon which be bad been working and which repre sented the plan for a great scaling ladder for tbe Fort of Hercules of the kind which bad existed In the fifteenth century. This drawing bad been gash ed with a knife and paint had been Smeared over It He endeavored In Vain to obtain some explanation from Oid Bob, As Old Bob seemed to be In a churl ish humor. We left him that Is, Rouie tabille and myself did. M. Darsac re mained gasing at bis spoiled drawing, but thinking, doubtless ot altogether different things.' As we went out we raised our eyea to tbe sky, which was rapidly becom ing covered with great black clouds. Tbe tempest was near at band. . "lam going to lie down in my room, I said. "I can't stand any more of this. Perhaps it mar be cooler there with all the windows open." Rouietabille followed me Into the new castle. Suddenly, as we reached the first landing of oar winding stair tase. he tr.rri mo; To be Continued.) MIDDLETTOWN MA V I KILLED BT TROLLEY MIddletown. Dec. 14.
