He did not attempt to conceal his sur prise. He had expected to find only an i-ngllsh valet, guarded by the vigilant xierr Halfenstein. Instead, he was con fronted by two strangers, with the valet hovering in the background. Morgan glanced at me; his face ex pressed a silent Interrogation. We heard the click as the Brescian cocked his revolver. There was a sharp exclamation be hind me. and I turned Just in timo to Bee McGregor covering the fellow with the spy's weapon. It was plainly time I ,Bald something. "Come, come," said L as calmly as possible. "There is no'neod fnr hi. play of firearms. You are In no danger from any one here. Captain Haup mann." But the Brescia still remained upon the defensive. nere is Herr Halfenstein?" he de manded, addressing McGregor. The valet muttered something, and it was I who answered: "There is no such person here. My man has told me of your visit of a short time ago, and that you wanted to in terview the occupants of this apart ment Your companion is no longer here, but as you have returned, it Is. uij necessary 10 siate your Dusiness. By what right do you enter this room and demand an interview?" "I am an officer of the Bresclan army." replied the captain haughtily. "That scarcely gives you the license to Intrude yourself on the privacy of a Buest of this hotel. "We have the right to demand an explanation," I retorted. "Which Is that your presence is de manded at the castle. You will be wise to submit quietly, for we know you are Herr Morgan." he answered. "You are laboring under a mistake. I am not Herr Morgan, nor do I under Btand why I should be subjected to in sult." I retorted. "You will, doubtless, receive suffi cient explanation from the proper quar ter. I have nothing to do with that. If you can prove that neither of you Is Herr Morgan, so much the better for 3'ou: but it will be necessary to explain why'your man, who has been Identified as the valet who accompanied Herr Morgan from Paris, is here in your apartment " He spoke sharply. "And If we refuse to Submit to your demands'" I queried. "It will be all the same to me. only you will have the honor of being escort ed through the streets by a guard of soldiers " "If you are permitted to summon them." broke In Morgan quietly. An ugly expression crossed the Bres clan's face It was evident he felt sure or nimseir. and he read a threat in Morgan's remark. For the moment I almost feared he might fire without warning. Instead, he shrugged his shoulders It can scarcely be necessary for me to point out the foolishness of opposi tion At the first mow I shall fir. Even should you have the fortune to Having full confidence In his agent, Halfenstein, he placed the matter In his hands with instructions to obtain the names of the conspirators. I shall have the honor, acting for Herr Halfen stein, of placing the list in the gov ernor's hands." watched the man's face closely, for, aunough I was apparently perfectly at my ease, my heart was beating like a trip-hammer. If I was mistaken we were doomed to imprisonment, or some thing worse.

A dull red showed un der the coat of tan, and I noted his handh trembled slightly; but his voice was hrm enough when ho addressed me.

One fairy found her crown on the bush, and after a while her wand was discovered, but when her little shell coach was found by another fairy they felt sure some terrible fate had befallen their aueen.

It gives one a pleasant feel ing to believe that there can ever be need for a sweater from May tq Octo ber, but there are evenings that are cool, and every one does not stay In this climate. The coast and the moun tains require sweaters over thin every day frocks, and so it has become the fashion for women of all ages to indulge in such a garment purely for summer wear. They come In all sizes and colors, have many pockets, are often made ornate by bands of another color knitted Into the foundations, and look smarr. Indeed, over a white shirt waist and linen skirt. 8o far they have ruled supreme among the vacationists until the snappy top coat came In of plaid or wool, with its raglan shoulders and loose back. This year both the sweater and the top coat have a brand new rival. It is the Nor folk Jacket made of Shetland wool. Whether or not these Jackets will catch on must be solved by time, but the tailors are offering them to w;ll dressed women, and have found that they go pretty well. The cloth is im ported to this country and is novel, warm, and artistic. Tt gives the ap- Fearance of wool, and Is quite glossy, t comes in scarlet, green, blue, and tan. Among these colors green and wallet are running a race for first place. appearance of their queen. Finally, one of the fairies thought of Witch Slndok and they went to ner At nrsi me witch denied all knowledge of their queen, but after a day or two passed and she did not return, the witch told them how the aueen had come to her and been changed Into a white rabbit and had gone to visit the goblins. "What shall we do?" they asked "Witch Slndok; "we will never be able to enter the land of, the goblins, and If they have discovered who she Is they will newer le her come cack to us. All the fairies began to weep, for they were very fond of their Queen. "Witch Slndok waved her stick and told them to be quiet. "We must look for a sign, the told them; "your Queen will bo sure to let us know In some way If she needs help. Come with me and we will search the fields, as they are more nearlv connected with the goblins lands than "any other place." The moon was shining very brightly and Witch Slndok and th" fairies went Into the fields. looking closely at the ground as they went along. Suddenly "Witch Slndok raised her stick and called the fal.-les. "Look," she said, pointing to bare spot on tho ground which formed a circle or ring, nnd In the center of which grew a tuft of grass. . "It is a fairy ring' cneu me laines as they gathered around it: "but where is our Queen?" "That Is for us to discover," said the witch, "it may be a lona time before we find her. but your Queen surely made this ring. There Is not another one around here, and we must watch. Hide all of you." she said, "and I will change myself Into a tree by the road side, and we will see what happens." The fairies hid among the grasses, and after a while they heard voices, and from out of the woods came the gablins In large numbers. They seemed to be guarding something very care fully. When they reached the fairy ring thu fairies saw a little white rabbit securely bound with vines. The goMlns put the rabbit In the ring and unloosened the vines, so It could run around, but they held fast to the ends. The rabbit ran around the circle, stop ping every once in a while and pre tending to nibble at the grass in the center and looking In all directions. The tree by the roadside waved its branches, and the rabbit saw the stick of Witch Sindok hanging from one of them. Then the grasses moved to and fro, and White Rabbit knew help was at hand. White Rabbit ran around the circle again, and then with a audden rush the fairies and witch Sindok swooped down, upon the goblins, and before they could recover from their surprise Witch Sln dok waved her crooked stick and cried out: From out that white and furry mien. Appear, appear, thou fairy Queen. The goblins did not wait to hear any more. They knew the fairies and" Witch Slndok had come to rescue the Queen, and they scampered away as fast as their short legs wouldScarry them.. The fairies chased them- Into the woods, and they disappeared Into the moss covered rocks. The fairies put the crown on the head, of their queen and gave her her wand, t "I have had a dreadful time." she said, "and I have been punished for ray ' foolishness. The goblins discovered I , was a fairy because I did not eat the . grass that grew In their gardens. They were going to keep me a year, and I begged them to take me out in the fields for a run. Insisting that I was a rabbit and needed the air and space to run about. "So they brought me out. and they did not suspect what I was doing when I ran about in a circle wearing the grass away. And I had to eat some of it, too," she said, making a face as she" thought of it. "I fet sure some of you woyld see the fairy ring and help me. "You see," she said, hanging her head, 'that even a queen does foolish JKE. RABBIT RQK BROPrTO THE CIROJt things, but I shall never again wish for any life but this: I will never leav vmi again." "Witch Slndok helped us or we should never have found you,' the fairies told her. "We must never foreet her kindness." the Queen said, "and we mjist help her whenever we can. There Is the sun Just peeping up. and we must run or he will shine upon us." And away flew the happy little fairies and their Queen to the cool, green dell for their much-needed sleep. Tomorrow's story: "The Surprise." lips "Should you fire first the result must be the same; there are a score of of ficers below." he added. "You have orders to take us to your castle?" demanded Morgan. I could see he was sparring for time. "So It would seem," replied the Bres clan shortly "And. permit me to state, my time Is valuable."

I opened the match-safe, drew out the paper, and tendered the empty box to him He looked at It In blank aston ishment "And you obtained this where?" he demanded.
