"Change carrlnpieB here, gentlemen, on
account of the Itusaiun frontier. ! Every
one (l(ccnd. PurdoinrnadiKr Herr, but
you triuHt, remove your elt'ecta. lor the vifice
do dounnne.". Tnu the civil , ft ussida
guard of the train, for the station was
Kydtkuhnen orv the Eaatern railroad. The
flat-capped porteradaid violent hands upon
the lugge, and we all went through the
Ptnseitm bureau and across to: that ovr
Which Waa paiuted the blaek eagie of lin
lia, and through the dim glass of whose
windowi appeared the green unifurtn and
glistening pewter medals of the iiusiiian
frontier guard-. . ;.! t-(; '.
This wainy first northern journey, and
it was nndertakea chiefly though not en
tirely, on account of buslnesg. I was not,
strictly speaking, a business man, being in
fact a sleeping partner ia the old establish
ed house of Hutohmororf Lowndes & Co.,
bankers of Lothbury, London. :
: 'A 8 Mr. Lowndes, who managed most of
theaflalrs ot the house eince Mr.:JIutch
mere had grown so very old and frail, con
fidently imormed me, we had long ben On
terms of business intimacy with one of the.
oldest and most respected of the English
fi rms in St. Petersburg ; that of Druce, (iiray
& Druoe, in the tallow trade, whose sig
nature was known and honored on every
exchange in Europe. But Druce, Gray &
Druce, who were truly reported to have
amassed great wealth in 40 years' experi
ence of the gainful Russian tratlic, had im
prudently invested in other securities than
tallow. In this emergency, our house was
applied to for aid, and we agreed to come
to the rescue, On condition that valuable
securities, for tho realization of which we
could afford to wait, enould be lodged in
our haads.v These securitiei were trans
mitted to London, and but one thing re
mainedto lorward the money urgently
needed. v
This, Iiowever, was not easy. Under
ordinary circumstances, a draft on a tit.
Petersburg bank, or a paroel of bills of ex
change, would have answered the purpose;
but not then. Tnc credit of a commercial
house ia as delicate a thing as the white cont
of the ermine, and as easily tarnished; and
Druce, Gray & Druce had stipulated that
every conceivable precaution should be
taken to keep the affair a profound secret.
Thus It fell out tltat I found myself on
the Russo-Prussian frontier on a gray and
moist afternoon In autumn, bouud for St.
Petersburg. I fouud the custom house
offlckls at Eydtkuhnen mach less trouble
some than I had expected.- My fnsport
was perfectly en regie, duly emblazoned
with the British arms, aud stamped with
red and black eagles in every absurd atti
tude to say nothing of the Belgian lion
thereon Imprinted at Ostend. 1
In the lint-class, carriage of the Russian
train I bad no companion toKowno; but
there a gentleman otin. lie wan awell
dr. sscd, well-looking man of 35; dark,
wiry and active, with lively hazel eyes and
superb i teeth.-With him he brought a
heap of fur coats aud pelisses, as well an a
portmanteau closely resembtlharfliat which
1 kept under my feet, and which contained,
In gold, and notes, the large sum to be ad
vanced by pur house to the flrrrt of Drnce,
Gray A Druoe. The new arrival took oft
his fiat on getting into the carriage, accord
ing tQ.tlie pwlite fashion abroad, and as lie
Settled himself in his seat, eyed me with a
quick sidelong glance that seemed to take
Biy measure in a moment. i c o
I We were soon engaged in conversation.
Our talk, beginning in French, and gliding
iiuiraiuciiuijr miu jiiiiisu. aiy uew UC'
otialntancc snokeboth l,mruqtrps with ner.
feet fluency, and with no perceptible for
eign accent, lie waa very chatty and
agreeable, full, of anecdote and Inloxroa-
iion, ana loin me mucn aDout the country
auu people oi inenisinri we wore travel
ing, M if hia. lifehad been spent' in the
neighborhood. I set him down. Inwardlv.
for a Russian nobleman, till by some chance
remark he changed thocurrentof my ideas;
and he afterwards frankly owned that he
was i a uutcu engineer, and named Van
Marum.
J I presently gathered from 31. ' Van
Marum's discourse that he was In the em
ploy, for the time being, pf the imperial
Government, and was preparing estimates
for no. extensive system of drainage anrl
Jmbackment to be carried into efl'ect on Uie
crown estates, I mentioned that business
or nnusual Importance had prompted my
jonrney, and ioeiitioiled the name of the
Irm toiwhioh I was accredited. , . ; i
''You don't say so, my dear sir," exclaim
ed the, Dutchman, ."Luce fc Co., of

in advance ujmn the brilliant reception that

M. Van Marum' might well ask t'' The
train had just stopped: with a jarring jolt,
the brakes were giving out a grating noise,
the 8teain-pfpe,(had begun to utter its an
gry rotrrwr impatience, and thump! thuitip!
went Lho buflVra of the carriages together,

we went down to stipper I brought the

not tail to place the treasure under lny

so that it could not be removed without my

among pelisses and. rugs. My own. repose
must have been unusually profound, thanks,
perhaps, to the drowsy-properties of a sort
of sleeping draught which my Dutch friend
had skillf ully compounded with hot wine
and spices, and which we bad imbibed af
ter supper. When I awoke it was broad
day, the outer door was unlocked, and I
was alone. Not a trace ot mv late acquaint

his cloaks were .gone, and . nothing but a
couple of pillows and the mark of his re
cumbent form on the dusty sofa were vis
ible to prove that he had ever shared my
apartment. '
Quite alarmed, I sprang out of bed, and,
lilting the bolster, saw the dark, morocco
leather and brass mountings of my port
manteau precisely as I had left them. Not
trusting to appearances, I drew out the
precious valise, and found, to my great joy,
that the casket was intact. The excellent

! Unwilling to spend my whole time in

upon thu expedient of placing the valise in
a cupboard, whloh I locked, as well as the
door of my room, and slipping the keys in

Before I could ask an explanation, two
