NOE, ACTHOA or "DESTINY," " PBAIBIE FLOWKB," " BLACKMAIL," ETC. CHAPTER XVin. THE PHISONEB ESCAPES -SUSPICIONS—CRABBED JOB SETS PUNISHED, Had Tom Black known what course things were hiking at the "Traveler's Rest," he would have been less sure of his asserted victory. Gipsy Jack and Crabbed Joe suspected something illegal iu their pal's accusation against their leader, and set themselves the task of circuniventing him. Tom's failure to get away with the plun der, iis unwarrantable interference in the captain's business by rescuing Cecil Clayton from their clutches, and, lastly, his charge of treachery, were far too indigestible for these watchful thieves. Jack, loth to believe the jolly Tom traitor or spy, at first would not incline to the al ways suspicions Spider's views, but, after finding "Bob" immured by his order, and being morally oertain that the charge was trumped up. he, to use one of his own ex pressions, "gracefully caved." Thereafter, the mysterious Mr. Black's movements were watched. Yet he was too spry to be trapped, and dodged every eflort made. Instead of returning to the Water Street den after his interview with Mrs. Weeks, he took lodgings that night in a cheap up-town hostelry. While be was resting, his pals were at work. After the "Travelers' Rest" was closed, and while the inmates were sleeping off vy potations, these two worthies dupli cated Tom's trick ol paying the incarcerated man a midnight visit, and then ascended again to their apartment and let themselves down, by a rope, from the window to the street, being the easiest mode of egress, and less calculated to disturb the tired roysterers. Reaohing terra firma, Jack gave a low, peculiar whistle. The bar-room door opened, and Jared Clark stood in the open air. No chains dung to his feet, but manacles Still fettered his wrists. Crabbed Joe had managed to get to him a file and two keys; with the tile he bad liberated his ankles, and with the keys unlocked the hen his ankles, and with the keys unlocked the doors of his prison and the bar-room. Joe quickly opened the handcuffs, and set the villain entirely free. "Which way?" asked Jack. "To the up-town ranch!" replied Clark, excitedly. They reached the brown-stone front be fore daylight. "How are we to git iu, cap.?" inquired Jack. "Haven't any keys, have you? ' "No; the cursed thief stole every one!" "And you say you don't know who done it?" < 'If I did, I'd— I couldn't get a look at him; he held me down." "I know!" suurlud the Spider. "Tell you when we get inside." Muttering imprecations on the head of the despoiler, he noiselessly smashed in the area side-light, olid liis arm through the aperture made, and pushed back the bolt which secured the door. Leaving Jack to relasteu it, he bounded the stairs and into the second-story back up room. . The door communicating with the hall he had left it. And the closet was open, as which contained many of his most precious valuables was safely locked. Shut iu by uuusually thick wooden panels, doubly padlocked, it would have resisted the heaviest blows. The sight relieved the owner. "My storehouse is safe!" he said to Jack, who came in at the moment and helped himself to a chair. "That ye don't know, beggin' yer pardon, Bob," answered Jack, dubiously; "and ye can't find out till ye git keys." "What robber would take the pains to replace things as he found them? said the leader. "Still, it's as well to bo sure. Spruce up, that you may not be too partic ularly noticed, and get a locksmith; you 11 find one on the next avenue. Be speedy, for I don't care to stay here any longer than I can avoid." ..... He flung open the shutter, to lighten the apartment, and lay wearily down on a set tee between the windows. The house was handsomely furnished ana had all the comfort* which make a pleto habitation. , Elegant paintings and engravings adorned the walls, and curtains of richest fabrio darkened the windows from any straggling rays of sunlight penetrating the erevioes the blinds. „ ,, . , . . The parlors were of the most elaborate description, the ceilings being of delicate tints, with medallion portraits of eminent at the four corners; portraits were com in persons also painted in tbe walls. All ill-gotten gain; not one honest penny in the whole structure-filched from the unsophisticated card-player and the wealthy with a proclivity for play, and added to by proceeds from burglaries concooted by the chief, carried out by his hirelings. Here Clark generally slept, but nev'er ate. To his hired rooms at the hotel all letters were directed, and there he got h.s me^ Ostensibly, the hotel was, and had been, for many years, his home. In reality, he knew not what home meant. , . Gipsy Jack Boon returned with a lock smith, who fitted keys to the padlook and also locked, and which the mao likewise ordered to try his skill upon. Here a difficulty arose; apeouliar kind of uired, which could not be con was was key was requ Btr "Cultoe°irk!" growled the impatient ° UrSe "I shall be obliged either to leave or blow it open, sharper. in it what I want to use, and that would kiok up a row. He paid and dismissed the n» a "' . "Well Bob, things looks as if wed been j skeered for .nothin'!!' said Jack, changing Ms tune. "If that lock is so pecootur.'tbe thing couldn't have been opened by a stranger." "Will bo, if it hasn't!" ana Jared Clark glanced sharply at him. "Do you say, Joe, that you know who chloroformed and robbed me?" he asked. The 8pider chuckled, as he replied: "I'm a Spider; I crawl, crawl—worm worm into secrets! It was Tom Black!" "So I suspected. Yet what can he know of me?'y "Much. Shuddered you often—often— and you never knowed anything about it!" "What?" cried Clark—"tracked me?" "Just what he's done ever since he jined us! Tried to give the hint, but couldn't get at you." "A detective, 111 wager!" said Clark, hoarsely, his lips whitening. "What I think," remarked Joe. "And 1," added Jack; "though he goes about his business mighty queer." From a shelf in the closet, Clark took a powder flask. "I'll have the safe open, or blow off the roof!" Rapidly he charged a pistol, and crouched in front of the troublesome lock, against which When he placed it and pulled the trigger, n the smoke had cleared, be turned the knob; but the door would not yield. A second shot was fired, and accomplished its mission. The door was opened. He glanced toward the top shelf, and the pal lor of his face increased. The most prised of all his possessions was gone! "The box is lnissingl" be gasped; "should its contents become known!" The violent ringing of ihe hall bell caused him to stop. Wero officers already iu quest of him? Ho hastened noiselessly to the street door, and placed un eye to a hole cut sufficiently large to command a view of the stoop. A glance satisfied him that there was no ex tra cause for alarm; the occupant of the ad joining house, having heard the report of the pistol, had como to inquire if all were right. The man disposed of, he rushed back, gathered up a change of clothes, packed them in a valise, and began arranging his toilet. His hirelings comprehended his move ments at once. "Goin' to skeedaddle, eh, Bob?" said Jack. "I may have to leave town for a few days, till I know to what use my ebony box will beput." Tnis was particularly unwelcome new3 to Crabbed Joe; it suggested lack of funds— perhaps the esptain would not return. "Aiut going to go without forking out some sugar, are you?" he whined. Clark scowled upon him. "That's always your cry! What use do you make of money? You get os much as the rest—share and share alike." 1 'Haven't any now. Must have!" Bnapped the Spider. „ "Easy! Don't get ugly!" retorted ^.uirfc, making a move to go. The cripple caught his coat, snar/Lgt "Money—money!" "Fool, let go your hold!" and, raid ing the revolvor which he was in the act of putting in his pocket, he struck him a powerful blow on the head, which sent him staggering. "Attend to your cut,, muter, and come onl" was the brutal command that followed the act , , , The unfortunate thief uttereu no word of complaint, but obeyed, stanching the crim son flow at the marble basin as best he pould, covered the wound with his dirty handkerchief, put on his hat to conceal it, and joined his pals, who waited in the area. Clark ordered him to remain there till himself and Jack reached the corner, and then go home to the den in Water Street, keeping a sharp lookout for the police. Ere leaving, he handed him a ten-dollar note slyly, while Jack's head was turned. CHAPTER XIX. MEMORIES—THE I, AX- 1 MBS. WEEKS APPLIES FOE A si.—i O^-'I'ANIOK— SAP :j s. "No, my dear, you cannot dissuade me— I return home to-day. What, in the name of goodness, would I pack my trunks tor, were I at all likely to alter my mind?" Clara Coles strove in "ain—Cecil, bent on following the mysterious Mr. Black's advice, would not listen to persuasion. _ "But, my doar Cecil, what need is there for being so hasty?" "I am acting according to promise, "Pshaw! a promise to that rough-looking detective! Of course, I've nothing against him because he is rough-looking, but how foolish to set store by every whim of a man whom you say you never saw but once! "Twice," corrected Cecil. "I met him before, I believe"—she was careful not to say where—"and am not at all afraid ot him, as I am not the criminal he is in search of. I had nothing to do with the—" She hesitated. ...... "The what?" asked Clara, surprised at the abrupt pause. "The Clayton trouble. Cannot you go with me?" ... . . Again her quick brain had saved her. "Wish I could, dear; at present, the so ciety needs my humble services," replied 0J ara "I'm sorry. Yet, if you'll not go, I trust you'll not harbor the same antipathy against my escort that you have against Mr. Black. "Oh, no! Mr. Newton is a gentleman while in the presence of ladies, at least; that is much in his favor." They were conversing in the drawing room, which was immediately opposite the reception-room, the door of which stood ^Their tones were low, indistinguishable 0U At this point, Cecil called, respectfully: "Mr. Newton, are you there?" George Newton presented himself at the door of the reception-room . "At your service, ladies.' .... He crossed the hall and entered the draw room.
