can see no one. And, remember, I do
not even know you." -' .
Kent cast about. rapidly In his mind
as be walked along with tbe car for
some one who might be a common ac
quaintance. He mentioned the name
f a very great psychologist at Har
vard. "Do yoa know him?" he aeked.
: ; "Yes. He Is my mother's half broth
er." ; . - " ' ..::.
' "And my vafcied friend," he cried.
May I get him to bring me?" He was
almost running now . beside the win
dow, i ' - . ' - - ''
"Tea," she assented, 'If you Insist.
Exit I will hear no word of of your
frlebdA .... -
"I understand. Agreed," called Kent.
Kent 'went direct to Cambridge. He
found his friend, one of the finest and
profotmdest philosophers of his time,
sitting in a closed house over a game
of that form of solitaire appropriately
denominated "idiot s delight." ; ! ,
It is long since you have done me
the honor . to consult me," said the
old scholar, smiling.
Kent outlined the case to him. . . ,
"Ton see," ' he said, "there is an ob
vious connection between the unknown
body on the" beach and the Blair trag
edy." . . '4 - -, ' -v :
' "Poor Marjorie!" exclaimed tbe id
man. ."For her marriage I blato my-:

was left an orphan I was her nearest
relative, of an age andjrposition such 'as
to constitute a . moral; claim .of guardianship.-
She - visited? here when she
was eighteen came like a flood of sun
light into this house. A beautiful vivid
girl, half child, half woman; "wtfth: a

past I found that Marjorie '"ims en
gaged to that wretched creature. Now,
be is dead. Let be. I have seem lit

the life with him has not crushed out
of her all her sweetness and happi-

?Blair HJL treatedjier?" asked Kent, r
"Oh, ill treatment! That is a wide
term. I , believe that the poor weak

honor. But ropes 'of mud arr ro&g.
Thsf wits svhich he hart bonnd him
eeif drew hisn resistlessly back to the
veww. cHare was but a marriage of
glamor at best."
"Does she- know - anything- of the
manner of Blair's death? , : '
"No one knows much of it, from
what t understand, unless it be Alex
ander Blair. One of the family who
. went to Hedgerow house for the fu
neral called-uipon me as a courtesy due
to Mrs. Blair's nearest relative. Alex
ander Blair, .he said, was reticent His
dread of publicity is notorious. But
from what he, the relative, could as
certain "the affair wast substantially
this,: On the' evening before the wo
man's body .was found "Wilfrid , Blair,
vrha had been exhibiting symptoms of
melancholia, left the house secretly.
Jo one saw him go, bat about the
time that he left tbe unknown woman
was seea in the vicinity of Hedgerow
boose." y' '
By wbomt ' -i
"By a half breed Indian, a devoted
servant of the family, who was prac
tically young Blair's body servant."
"Gansett Jim! That helps to ex
plain." V-
: "Whether r,not Wilfrid Blair had
arranged a meeting with this' woman

found wtEb her slro 11 -crashed on the

"Unnecessary, thank you. Mr. Blair

.' "Impossible! .Marjorie is not the wo
man to permit such a thing."
."Without blame to her or. indeed, to
either .of them.. She also believes now
thgt Sedgwick killed her husband."
"And and-'- she -was interested in
your friend?" asked the old scholar
slowly. . V
V "T fear that is. I trust so. Circum
stantial evidence is against Sedgwick,
but I give you my word, - sir, it - is
wholly Impossible that he should have
killed your niece's husband."
"To doubt your certainty would .be"
crassly stupid. And are you hopeful
of clearing up the circumstances?" ' "
"There I want your aid. The night
of the tragedy a person wearing a dark
garment embroidered with silver stars
was on Hawkill heights. I have rea
son to believe that this person came
there to meet some one from the Blair
place. ' It is to run him down that I
have come to Boston." . - - , '
"A man wearing a dark garment em
broidered 'with Bilver stars," said the
philosopher. ' "Surely a strange garb
in this age of sartorial orthodoxy."
"Not for an astrologer."1
"Ah, "an "astrologer! And you think
he came from Boston?" , '
"I think," said Chester Kent, draw-,
lng some newspaper clippings from his
pocket, "that somewhere among, these
advertisements taken from the news
papers which -are subscribed for 'at
Hedgerow house he is to be found."
"There I ought to be able to help.
' Through my association "with the oc
cult society. I have investigated many
of these gentry. Great rascals, most of
them." --
: "Whom would you consider the most
able of the lot V V -
The old man set a finger -on one of
the clippings. -"Preston Jax," said hei
"is the shrewdest "of them all. 1 Some
times I have thought that he had dim
flashes of real clairvoyance." .
- "robably he is my man. '' Anyway,
I shall visit him first, and if I find that
his dfSce was closed on July &' '
"It was and for allay or two there
after as I chance to know, because one
of .. the occult . society's " secret agents
was to have visited him and could not
get an appointment." -fT-'Giaod!

. Ten o'clock of the following 'morning
found the Harvard professor formally
presenting his frisnd, Chester Kent, to
.Mrs. Wilfrid Blair at the house of the
cousin with whom she was staying. :
"My dear," said the old gentleman,
"you may trust Professor Kent's Judg
ment and insight as implicitly as his
honor. I can give no stronger recom
mendation . and will1 now take my
leave." . . r
Kent resisted successfully a wild and
fearful desire to set a restraining hold
upon the disappearing coattails, for em
barrassment had again - ea gulfed the
scientist's souL ;.
t "1 don't know exactly bow to begin,"
he said. - , -
"Then I will help you," said she, be
coming suddenly gxave. "Tou are here
to speak to me of some topic Wholly
distinct from one forbidden phase." -
"Have you lost - any Jewels lately,
Mrs. Blair?" ,
The girl-widow started. '- "Tea. How
' did you: know ?" . . ..
' have made no' eomplaint or
published no advertisements for them?"
"I have kept it absolutely ,- secret.
Father Blair insisted that X should
doso." ,
" "They were valuable, these jewels 7"
"The . rings were. Intrinsically, but
what I most valued was the necklace
of rose topazes. They were the Groe-
venor topazes."
"A family reUcr '
)
' "Not my own "family. ' Mj husband's
mother left tbem to me. ' They came
down to her from her grandmother,
Camilla Grosvenor. She was rather a
famous person in her time. O. L. El
liott painted her one of his finest por
traits, I believe. And -and she was
remarkable in other respects. She was
' a woman of great force of character
and great personal attraction, I - be
lieve, though she was not exactly beau
tiful. When she 'was still under thirty
8be became the leader of a. band of
mystics and staj- worshipers. X believe
that she became infatuated ' with one
of them, a young German, and that
there was an elopement by water. This
I remember, at least--her body washed
- ashore on the coast not very far from
Hedgerow house."
.' "At Lonesome Cove?"
"Yes. . The very name of it chills
me. For my husband it had an uncan
ny fascination. He used to talk to me
about the place."
"Would you know the face of Camil
la Grosvenor?"
"Of course. 'The Elliott portrait
bangs - in . the library at Hedgerow
house." . .
Kent took from under his coat the
drawing purchased from Elder Dennett.
"That is the same," said Mrs. Blair
unhesitatingly. "It isn't quite the
same pose as the finished portrait, and
it lacks the earring which is in the
portrait. But I should say it is surely
Elliott's work. Couldn't it be a pre
liminary sketch for the portrait?"
"Probably that is what it Is."
k'Can you tell me where it came
from?"
"From between the pages of an old
book. Tell me how your necklace was
lost, please."
"I don't know. - On the afternoon of
July 5 I left Hedgerow house rather
hurriedly. My maid, whom I trust im
plicitly, was to follow with my trucks.
tnciuaing my jewel case. ne arrived
a day later, with part; of the jewels
missing, and a note from Father Blair
saying that there had been a robbery,
but that I was to say nothing of It"

TTLY 5." remarked Kent, with his
"J
lids dropped over the keen gaze
6f"his eyes. "It was the follow
ing morning that the unknown
body was found on the beach near
Mr. near the Nook." '
Marjorie Blair's face showed no com
prehension. "I have heard nothing of
any body." she replied.
"Did none of the talk come to your
ears of a strange woman ' found at
Lonesome Cove?"
"No. Wait, though. After the fu
neral one of the cousins began to
speak of a mystery, and Mr. Blair shut
him off." N
"Your necklace was taken from that
body." '
Her eyes grew wide. "Was she the
thief?" she asked eagerly. -
"The person who took the" necklace
from the body -is the .one for. whom" I
am searching.' -T Jowf-irs... Blair,- will
you tell me in a word how' your hus
band met his death? Your father-in-law-gave
you to understand, did he
not, that Wilfrid Blair met. and quar
reled; with with a certain person and
was killed, in the encounter which followed?",-.'"--
-s - "'
"How shall I ever free myself from
the consciousness: of my own. part in
it?" she shuddered." "Don't don't speak
of it again. I can't bear It." '
' "You won't' have to very long," Kent
assured her. 4 "Let us get back .to the
Jewels. You would be willing to make
a-" considerable ' sacrifice to recover
them?" I' .
"Anything !" :
"Perhaps you've heard something- of
this man?",
Drawing a newspaper page from his
pocket, Kent indicated an advertise

elaborately displayed as follows: ,

Mrs. Blah- glanced at the announce
ment: '- . ,
"I want yon to go there with me tS
day, said Kent. . -. -' . ;
"To that charlatan? Why, Professor
Kent, I thought' you were a scientific
man. I can't understand your motives,
but I know that I can trust you. When
do you wish me to go ?' -.-i;
J "I bare an anointment for us at high
noon."' i - - - ' ' ..
- As tie clock struck 12 ; Kent and
Mrs. Blair passed from the broad noon
day glare of the street and were ush
ered into the tempered darkness of a
strange apartment It was hung about
with black cloths and lighted by the
effulgence of an artificial half moon
'and several planets contrived,', Kent
conjectured, ' of isinglass set Into the
t fabric with arcjights behind them. - A
faint, heavy but not unpleasant . odor
as of Incense- hovered in the air. The
moon waxed slowly in brightness, H
luminlng the two figures. '
"Very well fixed. . up," ' "whispered
Kent to his companion. "The "astrolo
ger is now looking us oyer."; ;
In fact, at that moment a contem-1
plating and estimating eye was. fixed
upon them from a ''dead" star ha the
farther wall. Preston Jax did not, as
a rule, receive more than one client at
a time. " . Police witnesses travel in
pairs, and the starmaster was of a sus
picious nature. Now, however, he be
held, a gentleman clad in such apparel
as never police spy. nor. investigating
agent wore, a rather puzzling "sweU
ness" (the term is culled from Mr.
Jax's " envious thoughts), since It ap-
' peared to be individual without being
in any particular conspicuous. The
visitor was obviously "light." . i
Quitting his j peep hole, the starmas-
ter pressed a button. Strains of music,
soft and sou reel ess, filled tbe air (from

declared
the
a phonograph muffled In rugs). The
moon glow paled a little.. There was
a soft rustle and fluctuation of wall
draperies In the apartment. The light
waxed. The smooth shaved starmas
ter stood before his visitors.
They beheld a man of undistinguish
ed size and form eked out by a splen
did pomposity of manner. To this his
garb contributed. All the signs of the
zodiac had lent magnificence to the
long, black, loose robe with gaping
sleeves which he wore. Mrs Blair
noted with vague interest that it was
all hand embroidered.
Witn a rhythmical motion of arms
and bands he came forward, perform-
J ed a spreading bow of welcome and
j drew back, putting his hand to his
brow as if in concentration of thought.
Marjorie Blair felt an unholy desire to,
laugh. She glanced at Professor Kent
and to her surprise found him exhibit
ing every, evidence of discomposure.
"Stupid of me," he muttered in apol
ogy. "Gets on one's nerves, you know.
Awesome and all that sort of thing
fussing with the stars." .
"Fear nothing," said Jax. "The star
forces respond to the master will of
him who comprehends them. Madam,
the date, year, month and day of your
birth, If you p'lease?" -
"March 15, 1889," replied Mrs. Blair.
" Propelled by an unseen force, a celes
tial globe mounted on a nickeled stand-ard,-
' rolled forth. - The starmaster
spun it with a practised hand. Slowly
', and more slowly it turned until, as it
came to a stop, a ray of light, mysteri
ously appearing, focused on a constel-,
lation.
"Yonder is your star," declared the
astrologisfc. "See how the aural light
seeks it.". ;
Oh, I say!" murmured he of the
monocle. "Weird, yon know! Quite
gets on one's nerves. Quite"
vSb-h-b-h!" reproved - Preston Jax.(
"Silence is the fitting medium of the
higher stellar mysteries. Madam, youn
life Is a pathway between happiness j
and grief.. Loss, like a speeding comet,
has crossed it here. Happiness, . likei
the soft moon glow, has beamed upon;
it, and will again beam, in fuller ef-j
fulgence." ''
With beautifully modulated intona-
j tions he proceeded, while one of his
visitors regarded him with awe struck
reverence, and the other waited with
patience but unimpressed, so the .ora
tor felt.' by his .gifts. . His1 voice 'sank,
by. deep, toned gradations Into sBence.
The ray winked out. Then the woman
spoke. "; . ' . i ;
"Is-it possible for your stars to guide
me t an object which t have lost?"
"Nothing is hidden from the stars,
declared their master. "Yon seek Jew-
els, madam?" (Kent had let this much:,
out, as if by accident; in the morning's.
conversation.) . - - t
"Yes." '- . - ' '
' "Your birth stone Is ' the bloodstone. ;
"Unhappy, indeed, would be the omen
If yon lost one of those gems. (He I
was fishing and came forward toward)
her almost brushing Kent)
"But I say," cried Kent in- apparent-1
ly uncontrollable agitation; "did 3fur
stars tell you that she .had lost spme .
Jewelry? Tell me, is that how lyou ;
knew?' - . '..."'
In his' eagerness he- caught- at the
astrologer's arm, the. right one, and his
long fingers, gathering In tbe ample
folds of the gown, pressed nervously
upon the wrist. . Preston Jax .winced
away. All the excited vapidityfpasssd

"The ' Jewels which this lady (has

of unique . rose topazes. . I thongbt In

without the old of your stars, help her
to -recover them.", :
.Blackness, instant and impenetrable.
