As she did so. the Arabs leaped for Carslake, who sought to defend himself with the variety of instruments of tor ture at hand. They came at him tror-i all sides, tut h defended himself valiantly. One fell, stabbed through the breast. Another retreated, with a gash across his face. The others adopted his tactics, then, and helped themselves to any missiles their hands chanced to en counter.

It flew to bits. It got up and hopped in a hundred directions In the hun dredth of a second. It vanished. It want out. was not any more, and Instead became a flying cloud of In sects, not flying, but hopping. They looked like shrimps, but spring-tails wss their nam. Each one jumped on his own hook, each one springing for his own safety. At least, each on his own. except two. Thes two were hopping hand In hand. One, apparently, was -leading the other. After a bit. when the whirligig beetle had whirled Into the Jaws of an eel. the spring-tails began to settle down again; began to collect into a patch of dust one more, and th pair who had been going about hand In hand parted to feed. Suddenly a water scorpion ap peared. He had been an unnotlce able dead leaf before he moved, and mad a thrusting grab with his toothed, penknife-like front armed legs at on of th spring-tails, and, mining, dsshed on at another.

Tfiey began to duel, not accord ing1 to form, but according to wit and Ingenuity and dexterity. A trained swordsman would have found Carslake no adversary worthy of serious attention, but Tom had no skill and so Carslaka'a greater strength triumphed. Bringing his sword down flat upon Tom's shoulder, the other man bore through his guard and knocked him senseless. Then, turning, be dashed for the door. ' Pearl, Cecily and several of th Arabs followed him. In blank astonishment. Pearl's guests stood aside to let them pass. Through the halls and down th steps they went, pell-mell, and out into the garden. Three or four men appeared as Carslake advanced and he shouted to them. It developed, then, that they were als upon whom ha hid been c"jtlng". The Arabs opened fire. Hhelr re. volvers shattering the silence of the night and causing bursts of crimson name to light the darkness. Carslake's men returned the volley. Cecily fell, wounded and lay still; but Pearl crept round the bushes, with a rsvolver that she had come upon In th melee, and taklnr Carslake's force unawares, ordered them to throw up their hands. Having thought themselves vic tors, they bad relaxed their vigi lance and were preparing to de part. She had them at a disadvan tage and they knew it. More over, her voice rang out so crisply, her eyes gleaming at them so de cisively through th gloom, no one among- them ventured to oppose her will. They threw up their hands. "Now," ald Pearl addressing Carslake. "th violet diamond and the setting quick!" Carslak reached Into his vest pocket and withdrew his lingers. He stretched out his hand toward Pearl as -though to hand the dia mond over and before she knew what was happening, he had grab bed the gun. The others Jumped forward before she could so much as cry out. and she was Instantly surrounded.

The deadly germs are kept In little glass tubes, carefully sterilised, snd are fed with agar Jelly, an exceed ingly expensive substance which comes all tb way from Japan, where It is prepared from a par ticular species of seaw eed. Nothing can exceed the care and attention that is lavlihed on these loathsome little organisms by tbe scientists In chsrge of them. The typhoid microbe is not a very little fellow as microbes go.

Sometimes we 'most think we have seen the last facet and the last gorgeous spectacle of color, and that soon there will be no more sides, and then we shall weary and jawn with a bright eye wide for some other wonder. Jnst now I think we have turned away the bright grouping that Is made up of plumage and pageant, pomp and power, battle and "sudden death," "Purple Fist" and "Creeping Footstep" historical glory with its confusion of hosts where we cannot tell "our aide" from the hated enemy until the dust clears away and within our vision has slipped a new sorcery the powerful story simply told. And It Is pretty good to have after a head weary with actors clothed In "real bluebird feathers," or fights on dizzy walls (and we know these same fighters are after ward tucked away in little white hospital beds for a vacation.)
