O he had taken tho precaution against further examination of thd major's mount. The servants would probably not notice the cut upon the ffank and It would be supposed the beast had fallen in the slippery mud. 1 fell to wondering why he bhould have desired o. kill or cripple his compan ion, for ..i my mind there was no doubt that he had taken deliberate advantage of the dangerous Incline. I looked into his face and saw no evil there only weakness In the set of his mouth He would bear watching, for I believed him to be the tool or those under whose direction the secretary. Elmur Ludolf, had been poisoned in the hotel in Paris. ' It seemed a long time Defore Morgan put in an appeal ance. When he did come the girl did not accompany him. He glanced at Van Hollcun sharply, then nodded In reply to my look of Inquiry. "It is a bad break, but I think we havfe done eery thing possible. Still, the countess insists that a surgeon be summoned from the city," said he quietly. Von Holleun shrugged his shoulders. "Then I shall ride back tonight and send one on in the morning. And you, gentlemen " "Mr. Robinson will accompany you, but It Is considered best that 1 remain here during the night. There is al ways some fever, and the countess has I requested it' Morgan answered. The dragoon glanced at the sky and shrugged his shoulders. It will be dark before we can reach Brescia. Perhaps, after alii we had all best remain until morning. And then there is the little matter of dinner," Bald he lightly. Morgan and I glanced at each other. It waB not for us to suggest he ride back to the city. A moment before he had expressed the determination to do so, now, when he rouna uiai one oi us would remain behind, he suddenly dis covered it might be better to postpone his Journey until morning. It seemed as though he did not care to leave a stranger at the villa He turned toward the door. Pardon, gentlemen," said he, careless ly 'but I will Inform the countess that she will have four guests for tne night. I can assure Mr. Robinson he need have no scruples in accepting mj sister's hospitalii. Alreadv we are placed un der obligations " He disappeared. I looked at Morgan He nodded "For which obligation the young fool Is doubtless damning us most heartily. We might have known it this house is under the eye of the government, or. rather, the girl Is. which amounts to the same thing This precious gov ernor proposes to take no cha..ces The bov he has under his thumb, and the young fool will betray even his, own sister. But with the girl it is differ ent And you may remember that It was known Ludolf visited In ' secretlv on his last trip to Bretcia The gov ernor believes she knows, of the exist ence of the papers, but he does not pro pose to permit a chance of their be ing in her possession. Therefore no sti angers are allowed to w:ider un watched about the premises We are not dealing with fools, my friend, and the game is worth the candle We will stay tonight. on Holleun will remain, and we will be watched carefullv I will bet )ou tne oldest bcttle of wine in this Infernal country that at least one of the servants is In the pa of the governor.

He whispered this interesting bit of information rapidlv and under cover of lighting a cigar As the match burned out in his fingers, and he tossed it over the railing, the t'ounles alerie appeared in the doorwav. 'Jlose behind her was Von Holleun. CHAPTER VII. The Hold-up in the Park. AM never a heavy sleeper, and perhaps that night I was uncon sciouslv waiting to hear some thing, I remember falling into a do?e while wondering n " "" Kun and a pack of spies were creep ing through the hall and watch ins ui.der our windows I fancy I must hare had queer dreams, wiucn tt rcw me into an uncomfortable rest lessness, for I suddenly discovered that I was bitting up in bed, listening. For the moment I hung between half slumber and consciousness dim is believing that I was a fool, but with a stall. 1 came to my full rac u I ties It was not a nocturnal imag ination. some one was moving through the hall outside I nder ordinal y circumsianuea must have remained where I was. realizing that It was none of my af fair w hat was taking place In a house In which I was a guest But my dreams, and the impression Morgans words had made upon me, conquered I was out of bed, across the room, and had the door open just far enoug to hear and see There were three doors on either side of the hall, each opening, as I supposed Into a room used as a bed chamber Two of these doors were between mine and the head of tho stairs which led to the lower floor. Tho major, I knew, occupied the room nearest to the stairs, and on the opposite side of the hall Morgan ha"d been assigned the adjoining chamber, so as to be near his patient If any thing was required Who occupied the three other rooms, or whether they were occupied. I did not know I fancied koung Von Holleun was on the same floor Ana mis was pruveu cui rect within half a minute after I had opened my door. Perhaps because an invalid was in one of the rooms, a light was burn ing in a bracket near the head of the titrs M end of the hall was In Bemldarkness. the other plainly vis ible Under the light and in the act of closing the major's door softly, I saw Morgan As he stood there, his hand resting lightly on the knob. I mentally branded myself as an Idiot for banishing what little sleep might be permitted mo by leaping wildly out of bed I might have known that he would probably look In upon his pa tient several times during the night. He had intimated just before we re tired that it was possible that the cavalryman had received a knock on the head which might prove mis chievous, , . Expecting that he would turn and re-enter his own room. I was upon he point of closing my own door, A'hcn two things kept mo where I was. I noted suddenly that Morgan's door was closed, which would not have been the case had he entered the other room. Intending to return at once to his own. And. at the same moment, he let go the knob and took a step not toward his door, but to the head of the steps leading to the floor below. He had warned me against a noc turnal stroll in the park. Was he go ing to venture It himself, or descend to procure something for his patient? I resolved to wait and see. He did not pause, but descended the stairs so rapidly ana quieuy mat ii wyis gone almost before I could real ize It If It was to get something on the floor below, he must return with in a few moments. I opened my door a trifle farther, resolved. If he returned, to ask him how the major fared. It might not be a bad idea even to Join him In his room and smoke a midnight cigar: for I realized that sleep, for an hour or so at least, was out of the-questlon. But the Idea vanished almost as soon as It took possession of my mind. He could scarrelv have reached the foot of the stairway when I heard anotla sound In the hall the creaking of a hinge sadly In need of oil. A figure Issued Into the light cast by the lamp burning in the bracket at the head of the stairs. It was Von Hollcun fully dressed Two things stiuck me as worthy of consideration. The dragoon had taken the room at the head of the stairs, from which vantage-point he could keep an eye on any one who ventured to leave the hall. That ho had been on watch, and was prepared to act quickly, was evident from the fact he was fully clothed at that hour of the night. I saw Morgan's suspicions confirm ed. Our every move was being watched, and would be so long as we remained In proxfmlty to the Coun tess Valerie von Holleun. The game had begun. I did not propose to retire to bed. leaving Morgan to be followed and spied upon. Pausing but .for an in stant to see thTrt Von Holleun left his room and took the first step to ward the stairs. I bolted oack into my chamber, got into my clothes In rec ord time, and, minus collar and neck tie ana with shoes unlaced, hurried back to the half-open door. mnmonfa at th hphd of the StalrS, for he was disappearing down them Just as I regained the door. I slip ped down the hall quietly, taking care not to appear In the glare of the HB'U I heard his footsteps in the lower hall, then a faint noise upon the ver anda without It was my cue. I was down the stairs and groping through the gloom below to the front door or the villa. .,... It was open, and I peered out Into the night. Through the openings in the branches of the trees I could see a cloudless sky sprinkled by myriad stars. The veranda directly before me was faintly lighted, but bevond was darker than the-deepest pocket. Then, suddenly, as I paused, unde termined as to the wisest course, a yellow glare flamed unexpectedly up in the blackness Morgan's face, re vealed bv the light of the match h was holding, was silhouetted against the dim trunks of trees beyond. I saw him light his cigar slowly and carefully, then the match went out, and the blackness became denser than before. I understood, he suspected he was being watched, and he proposed to prove his suspicions The old tock lessness was upon him. the inaction of remaining In his room, thinking some one was plaving the spy a few rods avvav. had become Intolerable A stroll through the park, boldly and without concealment else he had not lighted the match would end the un certaintv He had told me It was probable that we would be molested If .ve held secret communication with the countess And at that moment the countess was sleeping in her bed. A movement, not a dozen jards from me, told me Von Holleun was some vv here near the veranda I began to feel amused He would follow Morgan: perhaps others would follow, dodg ing behind trees and creeping in the shadows The cigar would be smok ed out. Morgan would stroll back to his room, and the snW of the gov ernor of Brescia would havi trouble for their pains, having show ed their hand, as Morgan intended they should show it The red poitU of the cigar moved off in the darkness, down the drive toward vthe gate which onened onto the public road I heard Von Holleun follow two or three faint steps upon the gravel, and then yllence. I crept down the steps and trailed along in the rear, slow Iv and cautiously, for Morgan was taking his time. anl red end of the cigar stopped frequent- py . rne situation oegan to lose inter est. I could see absolutelv nothing except an occasional gleam of the red point ahead A certain nervous ness began even to lay hold of me, I might come suddenlv upon Von Hol leun or a stranger, and. despite all I could do. the picture of the man ly ing on the bed in the Paris hotel kept coming up in mv mind I might as well have remained in bed and per mitted Morgan to carry out his t without mv tin listing mvself Into them In the comedy which was be ing enncted I was plainly playing the part of chief buffoon. We trailed down the drive to the gate, the red glow had grown dim, and I could onlv guess w here Von Holleun might be Thoroughlv disgusted, I leaned again 't a tree trunk, resolved to take no furthsr part In a game which promised to end so tamely Contlnnntlnn of Thin Sf(ry Will Ile Fouml In Tomorrow's Iuur of The Times.

ACK RABBIT had been so many times to the House on the H1U that Mister Fox decided that It was no more than polite that he should go to Jack Rabbit's burrow a,nd visit him, and so early In the morning he started out, so as to get there before Jack Rabbit should leave. He ran along leisurely, think ing that he had plenty of time, but Just before he reached there who should he meet but Jack Rabbit al ready starting. "Good morning," said Jack Rabbit, thinking that Mister Fox had started off on a tramp and rather disappointed that he was not to have a visit with him. "A good morning, indeed," said Mis ter Fox; "so good that I thought I would venture down to call on you, since you have been to my house so many times without my returning your visit." "I am. Indeed, delighted," said Jack Rabbit as he turned about to accom pany Mister Fox back to his burrow "Do you know," said Jack Rabbit, that we animals pay very little at tention, it seems to mef to social re quirements; that we are not half par ticular enough About being polite about returning calls and exchanging courtesies." "I had not given the matter much thought," said Mister Fox, "because I usually have weightier things on my mind than society." ''We should never be too busy to be polite, said Jack Rabllt. and then as soon ss he had said it he thought. "I wonder if that is not a pretty presump tuous thing for mo to say to Mister Fox." But Mister Fox rather liked the frank ness of Jack Rabbit, and said: "I guess jou aie right about that, for really it takes verv little time to be polite if one only thinks."

"The Frogs," said Jack Rabbit, "would be all right if they an stand betas away from the water. They dress ex ceedingly well. I think the white vests they wear quite the swellest' thing in the whole world." "Then there Is the blackbird; he cer tainly will help so much. And tho Thrush family are all so pretty; we must Invite them." "Yes, Indeed," said Jack Rabbltt; "and. what do you think about Mr. and Mrs. Crow? They fly past here very often!" "They are a noisy lot." said Mister Fox, "and rather boisterous. I should be In favor of not asking them. I should, however, like to invite the Weii sels." "The Weasels?" asked Jack Rabbit.

"I could not imagine a hen or a goose tak ing much pleasure at a partv where I was entertaining, so that the barnyard fowls would seem not likely to get an invitation " "Well." said Jack Rabbit, "the owl is tough as well as wise, so that he would have nothing o fear from you. so sup pose we put him down first." With Mrs Owl. of course." said Mis ter Fox. "for we do not want to arouse house here and proposed that I move, out and give him my burrow because he said he had discovered it. No, in deed, I do not care to entertain any of that family." "All right," said Mister Fox. "then we will not invite them, for I should not want any of my guests to- be objection able. There are the Beavers down aj the brook, they are industrious people, and the tortoise, but If we ask him we must send the Invitation a long time In advance." r,"AJ!d the O'Possums." said Jack Rabbit.

"No, I thank you." said Mioter Fox; no lions If they didn't like the paryt. they might eat the host." v ' "Well, don't you think we have select ed enough anyway?" asked Jack Rab bit. "Perhaps we have." said Milter Fox. Now .we must arrange with the Secre tary Bird to write the invitations, and set a carrier pigeon to deliver them." What an original animal you are." said Jack Rabbltt. ' "Originality." said Mister Fox, "may or may not be desirable.
