THE SCRANTON TIJIBUKB-TUKSDAY MIKJNIN(i, DKUEAUJEK ii.t 1S9.J.
S The Masters of the Art. P By MAYNE LINDSAY. (Koslaa M. Hopkins.) r Copyright. 1890, by the Bacheller Syndicate. J SYNOPSIS. Charlie Esdalle. superintendent of pollre In the Timll illatrU-t. Imlta. a niun learned In the wiles ami subterfuges of native miilefueturH, Is much troubled by Insom nia. While In camp, on.- night. In the Jungle, being unable to Bleep, he strolls along an iiiuisimI path. He suddenly comi' upun a party of live olil men before a tiro. He listens to their conversation. They prove to be a retired merchant, Wajld All, a veteran soldier. Jan Khan, and three others, who possess the secret of prolonging life. They are discussing the wisdom of gaining possession of certain secret treasure. Ksdaile draws near to listen, stumbles and falls In front of the party. He Is seized, but Is released on Wajid Ali's advice. FA HT III. The other men Blond bark, and Es dulle picked himself up and advanced tn the fire, slightly out of breath. He did not answer for n moment, but stood stirring the white wood ashes with his tioot. He wits revolving In Ills mind the meaning of the strange words he had overheard, and the luisitlon that he ought to tuke. Then, reflecting that this was something altogether out of the line of ordinary experience, he shelved the policeman for the private Individual. "You have my word that I will say nothing of what I have seen or heard tonight, or may see or hear. And now, since I have given you thut assurance, you may us well give me the clew to the wild talk of treasure und Immunity from death that I have overheard. As "Tft IT STRANfiEH THAN' WHAT YOU SAW ON MUHITKKI'M NUiHT ONCE. IX DOLPIH'Il?" SAID WAJID AM, QUIETLY. to how I cnnie here, you were right. AVujld All sahib, that It was not de sign. My cainp Is hardly three miles from this clearing, and I hod come out to cut the nlr when I saw your fire and judged you to be well, never mind. Hut let me say that 1 have met many strange things, but never one as strunge as this." "Is It stranger than what you saw on .Mohurrum night once, in JJulpur?" said Wajld All, quietly. lOsdaile started. The reference could only be to an occasion when he had penetrated, a native disguise, and as lie thought undetected, Into the hurly burley of the backways of a great Mo hammedan city. Who was this man who knew of it? "You know much, Wajld All," he said, "Perhaps I, too, know a little." "Yes, 1 know much," said Wajid All with a puff at his hookah. "If I did not be alive at this moment. I did not trust you without good cause, sahib, TJo you know that you are a man after my own heart? If what 1 tell you now induces you to throw In your lot with us, we shall have gained more than I hoped to win so soon. Do you want to Know all?" "Assuredly," said Esdalle. "Say on." The old men had seated themselves B :,ru In round the fire, acquiescent, ap parently, in the leader's line of action. Wajid All snuggled a little closer Into his blanket, sucked at the hookah for a moment, fixed hi a eyes on Esdalle, and began. "1 am an old man, sahib, as you per ceive, but perhaps I am older than you think. I can remember many things surely I did not dream them that no other living man has seen. There was a time when this land we stand In now belonged, not to the British raj, but to ' another people, and when the English . caine there was much trouble. It was war. and the English did not always win, sahib. There was a battle over there" Jerking his head to the west ward "and the little hillmen had their till of slaughter.' I knew of It, because 1 saw the white soldiers that came back, and they spoke much of It. Their gen eiel was killed, and his officers died round him; you ran see the pillar that vas put up to his memory arms sthe naddi from Tlmli now. They won at lust, the suhlbs, but the hillside there has been soaked In English blood. And those that came back, so worn and hag gardI can see them now." The meaning of this preamble forced Itself upon Ksdaile at this juncture, and he gasped. "You're talking about the conquest of Timll. You can't remember that. It happened nearly a hundred years ago!" "Ah! Walt till the end of my tale before you say what I can or cannot do," chuckled Wajid All, much pleased ap parently at the effect tie had produced. " ou know of that time? I was a grown man then, and the gray hairs were be ginning to show themselves In my ,beurd. And of those that were men 'with me, of the millions that lived and breulhed with mo in this Hindustan of ours, not one remains save only those here, und they were babes at that time." He pnuped Impressively and then continued: "When 1 was a young man I became a servant what you English would call a clerk to an eld aqd wise mer chant of Delhi, a dealer In silks and carved Ivory and sweet smelling boxes, who was well enough known In his time. He traveled from one great city to another. Hi lling his goods to the sa hibs sometimes, and sometimes pene trating to the native states and doing 'his business with the Princes of those lands. He knew the worth of all things, my muster, and he had al ways one eye o:en for bargains wher ever he went, nnd the things he col lected were many and curious. He was a rich man, but lie was not a happy one. Long before, his only son, who was to him as the apple of his eye, had been murdered by thugs while traveling with goods, and bis death had preyed on my master's mind. He favored me among his servants, for he aid that I was wise for so young a . man, and would come to great things. It may be. I do not think I was ever a fool, even in my youth, which Is the time for foolishness. My master, then, chose me out to lie his personal attend ant, to travel with him Instead of stay ing at Delhi poring over his account books, and he used to speak to me of many matters. Looking back now, I think he was training me according to some system of his own, for it was not only of the secrets of our trade that he sHike, but the things of the broader life, and how to know the mo tives of men and use them. He was very wise. "It happened at last that my master fell sick when he and I were alone upon a Journey, which we had undertaken to settle a bargain of half a lakh's worth of silk and gold brocade with a great princess. We had disposed of the goods and were returning to Delhi, alone, as I said before, except for the escort, without which it was not safe to travel In those times. I do not know how the sickness came. Allah had willed It, only that my master should die. We halted in a camping place by the roadside, and he suffered for lnuny hours, during which time I tried many ivmetlljn, without avail. And then, just before he died, he called me close to him and bade me unwrap the folds of his turban and gave me this." Wajld All stopped again and fum bled In his cumberbund. Esdalle bent over to see what lay In his hand and found only a small buttered silver box, of the size of a pill box, which the old man was handling tenderly. "I don't see anything in that," he said. Impatiently. "Explain." The other stroked the hox with his finger as he replied: "Am I not explaining, sahib? I will open the box now and you Bhall see." As he spoke the lid Hew up as though he had touched a hidden spring, and he held the thing out so that Esdalle could see the contents. A red-gray powdr-r, of the consistency of salt; and smelling ever so falnjly of a strange, sweet odor. That was all. Wajld All shut the lid again with a snap and re turned the box to Its hiding place. "Little enough, Is it not?" he said. "A pinch sutflces, however, unless the subject be at the point of death. Did you ever hear of Haflz, the sorcerer, sahib?" "A man that lived In the time of Shah Jehan, you mean? Yes. Some of his spells are used by old women to conjure with even now." "Yes, though 1 think they are but vain things, made to delude the credu lous. Hatlz was a conjurer and a wiz ard, and a knave for the most part, and the things he did were done only for trickery and evil. Nevertheless, he was a thinker In his way. He spent all his spare hours In trying to find out the essence that it was said could be made to prolong life and he found it. Of what it is made I do not know. They say that life Is only given by the taking away of life, except by Ood. Hut, whether the means were foul or fair, Haiti discovered the secret, and the fruit of his labors lies in that little box." Esdaile looked sharply at the old man. "That Is a difficult word to believe, Wajld All sahib. I am not a child, to be pleased with fairly tales. The thing is Impossible." "It is the truth before Ood," said Wajid All, solemnly. "That powder means freedom from all mortal sick ness; It means life so long as a man can escape accident or violence, Haliz died by the hand of a woman, but not be fore he had handed on the powder to his son. He became a soldier, and died at last on the battlefield, which is a fate the powder cannot guard against. His body lay where it fell and was stripped by a peasant, who took the box for a silver trinket and sold it to a camp fol lower as such. It passed through many ignorant hands after that quite safely, for there is a secret spring. It was re served for my master, who has studied in many wise books and knew of Hafiz' discovery, to trace Its history and re cover it. It came to him after long searching, and I cannot enter into the details of its finding now. He admin istered it to his son, but he would not take It himself, for he feared to be left alone. It was well for him that he did ho, for his son, you know, was killed, and after that it only remained for him to die. Hut before he died he hand ed it to me, wherefore I am here at this moment. I did not tell anyone of the secret, neither did I take the powder myself until tome time afterward, when I had thought out the scheme that we were discussing even now. For I thought, rightly, that to give life be yond the allotted span to men who had no reason but fear of death for living were a cruel kindness. What would life be to a man when all his people had died, and he was left without end or ptlfose? All men have the terror of death but I think that the terror of lite. If substituted, would be a still more fearful thing. So I bided my time and kept silent and amassed money. To be Continued. FOREST CITV.

Is still confined in the borough lock-up. Since the time of his arrest the officers have had numerous calls from his friends who would like to see him and hold a conversation with him. On Sun day morning when an otticer went to the Jail to feed the prisoner he no ticed that one of the heavy Iron bars of the cell had been bent. Rudy was questioned but denied any knowledge of the affair. ,It is supposed that Rudy made an attempt to escape. The jail is now in charge of two men who keep watch during the night. The condi tion of James Morrey is still a critical one. He may not recover from his Injuries. Latest reports were to the effect that he was in such a condition that his recovery is doubtful. He Is now at the Carbondale hospital. The Christian Endeavor society of the Presbyterian church will send dele gates to the fourth annual convention of the Christian Endeavor union of 'Susquehanna county to be held In Hall stead on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. John Meka and John Kurtanla, the men who were with John Rudy at the time of the stabbing affray on Friday night were lined and allowed to go. The evidence against them was not sufficient to warrant their being de tained. A telephone message was received late yesterday afternoon notifying Of ficer Ledyard of the serious condition of Murrey. He Is gradually sinking and the loss of the other eye Is certain in a few hours. Rudy was taken to Carbondale in order to be Identified before Morrey loses his sight entirely. Ledyard and John Maxey handcuffed the prisoner and took him down to see his victim yesterday afternoon. It is feared that an attempt will be made to break open the jail doors by Rudy's friends. They are determined to try and have him escape even If they have to resort to violence. An armed force will be stationed in the interior until the prisoner is taken to Montrose. on Friday evening at the rooms of the Young Men's Christian association a debute will be held. The subject Will be, "Resolved. Thut United Stales sen ators should be elected by the people," All admission fee of 5 cents will be charged to those who are not members it the association. NICHOLSON.
