rs THE TIMES DAILY SERIAL STORY THE GRAY WOLF Xy F. K. SCRIBNER Copyright, 1911. The Frank A- Munsey Company. CHAPTER Vn (Continued. I THINK Morgan must have remained at the gate for a full uarter of an hour. He had evidently finished his cigar, for the red point of fire had entirely disappeared. I could trust only to sound to tell me when he returned to the house, for he must pass within a few feet of me in retracing his steps back over the drive. It is strange the freaks nature plays sometimes. Half an rrcTir before I knew that sleep was utterly Impossible; now I felt it creeping upon me with irresistible force. It was only with an effort I could keep my eyes open. The most delightful thing In the world would have been to sit down at the foot of- that tree and doze oft Into utter oblivion. I remem bered I had not slept much the night be fore, and that to slumber was my due. 1 closed my eyes, opened them, began to lose consciousness. Then, as though a Hash of lightning had illumined a cloud less sky, a glare of light burst out of me aaritness. for a moment it Dimaeu me Then I came to my senses and realized what was happening The light from a pair of bull's-ejo lanterns lit up the drive, the rays bor 'ing like an auger thiough the darkness. Jn the focus of the light stood Morgan and I w3 not surprised to see him there. But what made aie catch my breath was the second figure, clearly Revealed by the powerful illumination the little countess, clad In white, ex cept for the dark cloak which nung from her shoulders and touched the gravel of the drive. They were not together twenty feet must have separated tnem, but tne jilerclng ravs from the lanterns reveal ed each plainly. I could see Morgan's expression of dumfounded surprise; on the face of the countess angtr and fear .struggled for mastery. And I knew that her presence in the park wa. totally unexpected to Morgan, that ho liud not dreamed she would leave her bed that night. For several moment? the light shone upon them; then a harsh volco came out of the darkness. Return to the nouse, madame; we bave a little business with this gentle man." A wave of anger banished the fear in the pJrl's face. As for Morgan, I saw 4ilm draw himself up and nis hands clench spasmodically. The countess turned toward the cruel ylare, which blinded her, and beyond which she could see nothing. "Major Shulhof has awakened and is suffering Knowing this gentleman was wall.ing In the park, I came to find him. By what right do you Inter fere?" she demanded coldly. So that explained her presence at such an hour To me it seemed the most natural thing in the world. The lllght wavered a little, then became sta tionary. I could almost fancy I heard a gruff laugh behind In the darkness. 'The voice replied: "The major will receive what Is due Tilm. In the meantime, if madame Is wise, she will return to the house." "Ey what right" She spoke brave ly, but I co aid see her lips were trem bling. Then the voice of Morgan in terposed. "Oo back, madame; it Is for me to show them their mistake. 1 will be Ivith the major presently." He spoke quletl, but 'n a voice in which command piedomlnated. The Clrl hesitated. Go back!" Morgan repeated, and the shadow ot a smile touched his lips. ' The courftesb looked Into his face, hesitated again, and then, with a com pression of the lips, caught up her cloak and turn"i rne disappeared in heard the ound unon the travel pmlle wa. playing again about. Mot Kan s lips He turned his head ai:d looked straight into tho steady glarj of the lantern. "Well, ynu desire something of mo?" lie asked quietly. A figure came out of the blackness into the light. He was a thick-set man, who carried himself like a soldier, al though he was clad in a close-fitting nilt of some dark material. As he dif not carry a lantern, I knew there had been at" least three of them lurk ing behind the trees. Morgan looked the fellow full in the face "It appears you have the advantage at least, tn numbers As 1 am unfa miliar with the customs in vogue in Brescia, I naturally took no prernu llors to guard against highwaymen while accepting the hospitality of one of our covntrynomen. I have a watch, a few trinkets, a little money, and my letter of credit the last can scarcely be if set vice to you," said he coldly. He was playing the game to the limit. I could see that, for the moment, the fellow who had come out of the dark ness was at a loss for a reply. Then he shrugged his shoulders. "Your watch and youi money are Fafe. You .should understand that," he answered gruffly. It was Morgan's cue to do the shrug ging. "All I am permitted to understand is that, a guest, perforce, of the Countess von Holleun, I am held up In her pri vate grounds by some gentlemen who follow the occupation of hiding behind trees, if I have misjudged your mo tive I apologize." But from his tone one could Judge he was thinking of anything but apologizing. The man made an Inpatient gesture. "We are .wasting words. I desire to know for what purpose you arranged to meet the Countess von Holleun secretly?" he demanded sharply, i "You might Inquire of the countess, although I do not mind telling you I I not only arranged no meeting, but was totally Ignorant the lady intended leav ing her room tonight. She has said she desired to find me in order that I might endeavor to relieve Major ?hul ,hof's suffering. I accept that assertion as the truth, which ends the matter, fo far as the Countess von Holleun is concerned," Morgan replied quietly. "Hardly, my friend." retorted the man gruffly. "I must request you to permit yourself to be nearched. And." he added meaningly, "as you have ob served, we have the advantage of numbers." I felt my heart descending Into my fshoes. The game was lost at the very neglnning, and an througn Morgan s wretched carelessness. He carried the fateful papers upon his persons, and the fellow could not fall to dlncover them. It would end our buslnes-s In Brescia abruptly, or perhaps It might go yet further, and the governor would not let us off so easily: for If we had brought the papers into Brescia we must naturally know what they con tained. A dangerous knowledge to pos sess at such a time . A wild 'dea flashed through my brain. Could I not shout a warning to Mor gan, dash frorrymy hiding-place, knock down the spy, and peimlt of our escape during the momentary confusion? I think If I had seen the faintest ex pression of alarm on Morgan's face I would hae attempted the harebrained scheme. But It was the shadowy smile which, for the third time, flitted across his lips. Somehow it quieted my panic, and I recollected, that nothing prevent ed him from leaping out of the zone of light and trusting to the darkness to baffle the governor's agent. But he sto"d cerfectly still, and I, in turn, huggrd my tree and waited. "I desire to search you. Perhaps you know why?" repeated the man, and took a step forward. "Again vou possess the advantage Get it over with," replied Morgan coldly. The light from hoth the bull's eyes was focused upon him. The man ap proached, hesitated for an instant, then called to tnoe conceaiea py tne uar ness. "You may shoot If there Is .1 suspic ious movement, you understand." I confess I am not wen up in tne methods adopted in searching a sus- yected person, but the fellow mu6t nexr mnmeni sne iihu - the darkness, and 1 1 "xi " . rV 1"'""2 "V.,.. ..'V oftMST'fSS fLLu 75W? -" have been a past-master at the busi ness. Not the fraction of an inch of Morgan'n clothing or person escaped in vestigation, and so skilfully und rap Idly was the work carried on that I believe I held my breath until It was over. Watch, trinkets, money, letters, and passport were produced and ex amined. After each I experienced u. chill, thinking the next must be tho fateful packet. Perhaps, had I seen it In the fellow's nana, I might have sprung forward and snatched it away, then fled toward the gate; but I did not see It: and, having finished, the man stepped back, mattering some thing beneath his breath. Morcan ouletlv returned his property to tneir various receptacles. Xsot once during the search had he exhibited signs of Impatience, but now he spoke angrily. "Having satisfied yourself to tho full, will you favor me oy explaining the me.tnfng of this insult?" But the man did not reply at once. Instead, he called out to some one in the background: "'Come here!" . . A second spy. and one who carried a lantern, appeirea; in one unu ''"" a revolver. The .first turned to Mor- Blt is due meln herr to proffer some explanation, and It Is this: The govern ment has received word that spies have been busy In Brescia, and have ob tained copies of important state papers. It Is the misfortune that each stranger must fall under suspicion unuer cer tain conditions, and you understand. "And what has this to do with the Countess von Holleun? I believe I was accused of arranging a secret meeting with her. Because of that you deemed It necessary to search me?" queried Morgan coldly. The man's manner became one of con fidence; he nodded in the direction of the house. "The Countess von Holleun is also under suspicion an affair of state, you understand." "In other words, your government be lieves the Countess von Holleun is willing to betray her country, and be cause It was believed I was to meet her here I am taken for a spy?" "It is so. What else?" the man re plied Of course I knew, and Morgan un derstood, he was lvinc nobly, but he chose to accept the statement as the desired explanation. "It is unfortunate I placed myself in such a position. Ynu arc satisfied, I presume?" he demanded. "That you have no papers yes; but there is tHe other your friend." "Ah, Robinson! He Is doubtless sleeping quietly. The most Innocent fellow In the world and one of the most nervous. Cannot he be spared?" There was a trace of banter In Morgan's voice. The fellow noted It and frowned. "He must be searched also; I have my orders," sald he sharply. I heard no more, for I understood they meant to visit my room, and It was just as well it should not be known I had been abroad In the park. De spite the darkness and my unfamlllarlty with the ground, I made record time back to the house. The front door was still open and the lower hall In gloom I trained the stairs and hurried up them. The door of the major's room was open, and I saw the countess stand beside the bed. She looked up quickly and came toward me, thinking, I sup pose, that I was Morgan. "You were in the park?" she asked quickly. "Yes," I answered. "But they believe I am asleep In my room. They are coming there." "Oh. this Is terrible! Believe me. I realize the Insults, but am powerless to prevent tnem doing as they please. And Pardon, but they must find me In mv room." I saw the major was sitting up I bed and evidently desirous of saying something, but time was pressing. I almost ran through the hall, dashed into mv room, closed and locked the door It had not taken me long to dress; I discarded the garments In half that time. Then I sat down on the edce of the bed and waited for tho summons which I knew was coming. It took them longer than I had sup posed, and I might have taken matters more leisurely, but finally I heard foot steps In the hall, and some one rapped upon the door. I waited a moment, then, the knock 1" being repeated, called out, asklr -what was wanted It was the voice of Von Holleun which replied. "Pardon, meln herr, but your pres ence Is required: It is a matter of Im portance." It Is not necessary to go Into detail as to what followed. Von Holleun ex plained with profuse apologies what was required; his astonishment and cha grin were well simulated. I trust I played fairly well at that game mv self, protesting vigorously, but nermlt tnir them to enter the room and make the search with as good a grace as possible. When it was ended I s"' mv mind freely, and received a fresh vollev of apologies. The men left the house, and, after a time, I found my self In Morgan's room. He nodded pleasantly, expressing re gret that mv slumbers had been dis turbed. I lighted a cigarette, puffed for a moment In silence, then nut the ques tion which had been puzzling me. "When that fellow searched you near the rate, how did you manage to ge rid of the packet?" He smiled grimly. "Sd you were out there, too, keenlner under cover. It was a pretty little gathering, wasn't it? Had the countess remained indoors. It might not have been so interesting." he replied. "But the papers?" I demanded. "Oh, the napers! Well. Shulhof has been guarding them this past two hours." 'Shulhbf?" I stammered. Contlnnntlon of This Story Will Be Found In Tomorrovr's Issue of The Times.

ColtAdmits Drinking r Alienated His Wife NEW YORK, July 9. Russell Grls wold Colt, husband of Ethel Barry more, admits that "too much drink ing" on his part may be responsible for the decision of his wife to seek a di vorce. That her decision is final is confirmed by her manager, B. Frank, who stated in Los Angeles, where the actress Is playing, that the papers would reach this city tomorrow. Mr. Colt got the first intimation of the divorce suit on his arrival at his office yesterday morning. At first he was indignant, but later he calmed down and his statement concerning his fondness for liquor was corroborated by Mlss Barrymore's brother "Jack" at his summer home. In Rockvllle, L. I. "Colt drank too much before he mar ried my sister," Bald Barrymore. "He promised to reform, but almost on the day of the wedding my sister saw her mistake So far as liquor was con cerned Colt had not reformed.
