"It Beems good to be at liberty once

"In the Hue de Creuse," replied Mon
roe. "I don't know the neighborhood."
Neither did Buckford. Had he known
that the Hue de Creuse was the next
street to the Hue de Mont-Rouge he
might have had a queer sensation.
They were led Into a small room,
where two or three tables stood against
the walls.
"This cafe is not known as such to

They each ordered a substantial sup

ed as they spoke of the difference be
tween the meal Buckford was going
to eat and the one he would have had
in the depot.
Suddenly, when they had grown used
to the place and the sense of security
had become strong, a panel opened In
the door directly behind Buckford, and
a heavy club, made of an eelskln
stuffed with sand, descended on his
head. He fell unconscious to the floor.
Monroe, who had seen the panel
slide, had leaped to his feet and drawn
.a pistol from his pocket. But the oblig
ing police agent leaped like a panther
upon him, pinioned bis arms, and
while his cries for help rang impotent

game." he said.
In the darkness of the night poor
Bob Monroe, too chivalrous and confid
ing, was dragged by the heels to the
refuse heap of a nearby brewery fftc
ing on the Rue de Mont-Rouge.
Which explains the cry of the police
man who rushed into the office of the
Investigating magistrate, M. Senecal,
•and struck everybody dumb with hit
startling information.
|T was more chance than mer
cy that saved Buckford's life
when Monroe, less fortunate
than he, was battered to death
by the clubs of his hidden assailants.
He had not seen the attack, and the
first blow sent him unconscious to the
floor. Monroe had seen the blow struck
and, rising to fight, had brought the
concentrated fury of the murderers
upon himself.
Having killed one innocent, the
thirst for blood of the scoundrels must
have been assuaged, or they were act
ing under orders that left them but one
course to pursue.
Or, perhaps they did not examine'
Buckford closely enough to discover
that he had not been killed.
One corpse on the refuse heap was
enough. I
At any rate, Buckford, Instead of be
ing dragged from the building as Mon
roe had been, was taken to a small
room and left lying on the floor in his
awful stupor.
He did not know, and it is not our
business to say, just how long he lay
there. He awoke at first with a dull
throbbing pain In his head. He waB
conscious of a terrible thirst. Half
stupefied, yet knowing he was where
he ought not to be, he sat up and look
ed around him.
Gradually, as his blood circulated
more freely, the pain in his head de
creased, and his senses became more
He found that he was in a very small
room that had evidently been formed
after the house was built, by running
a partition of thin and narrow wooden
strips across the end of a larger room.
The purpose of this little room—the
original purpose—was not apparent. It
may have been to provide an extra-bed
or dressing room. Its present purpose
was clear—It was his prison.
The room was about six feet in
width and about ten in length. The
wooden partition ran along one of the
long Bides, and in this there was a
small door.
At one of the narrow ends there
was a window.
Wallace sat for some time on tho
floor before he gathered strength
enough to rise. The blow on his head
bad deprived him not only of con
sciousness, but of strength as well.
There was absolutely no furniture in
the room. It was, however, carpeted
with a thick, firm fabric.
After a time he rose to his feet, shook
off the momentary dizziness, and be
gan a more extended examination of
his prison.
He was really ill enough to be in bed,
but excitement and the sense of im
pending danger kept him up.
He did not know that Monroe was
dead. He had last seen Monroe sit
ting quietly at a table drinking wine
and waiting for his supper.
He first tried the door in the wooden
partition. It was locked. He then
went to the window. It opened upon
a small narrow court
The building opposite was almost
aroid of wJpdows. There were two'
iMiiiM it^ti
venl'lullou, but nothing to be called a
window as windows go.
But leuniug from his window and
looking down he saw that there was a
similar one underneath it in the same
house. It opened, no doubt, from a
room similar to the one he was in, or
similar to the one that existed before
the wooden partition was put in.
The window was there, but it con
veyed no thought of escape to his
mind. He had not as yet ikgun to
form any plan of escape. The ground
was far below him—the paved court,
from which no exit was seen, except
through the lower stories of the abut
ting buildings.
He turned from the window and
leaned against the wall In deep and
troubled study.
Where was Monroe? That was the
first question he asked himself. It was
clear that the plan to rescue him from
the police station was simply to bring
him again into the hands of the ene
mies of the prince. The plot had suc
ceeded, as far as he was concerned, but
.whew was Monroe?
No suspicion of the American en
tered the head of Wallace. He be
lieved that Monroe had beta dap«4 br
the pretended police agent. Ht hots
that Monroe had been more fortuaat*
than be and had made his ceeap*.
In that case the best thing that ««ttl4
happen was for Monroe to coafass
share in the plot to the pollea aa4
have them come to recapture him.
Terrible as was the uncertainty of
his fate In the hands of the police, his
situation as a captive of the plotters
was worse.
But would Monroe confess? Would
he betray himself to the police and di
stroy his position in Parisian society?
iVhile Buckford thought out all these
perplexing questions he became sud
denly conscious that voices coulQ be
heard through the wooden partition.
He bent himself to bring his ear to
the keyhole of the door.
Undoubtedly both Americans are
dead," said one voice. "The poor dupe
who did our work so well has been dis
covered in the brewery court and tafe
'en to his home. Well, the police witt
has not moved."
have a fine hunt for the murderers.
But this will sluiply be another great
mystery for Paris to ponder over.
These police! They are but cheap fools
at best."
"Let's take a look at this one," said
another voice. "I have Bomehow come
to consider this fellow a dangerous
enemy. He .seems at least to care lit
tle for life. It Is the man who is will
ing to die who lives through every

at every step. Why, even Vandal's lit*
tie act was attributed to him."
I "YeB, but he was caught in the very

stance that Vandal gave him the
I Buckford's breath came fast now.
These words meant much to him. They
proved that the man who had given
him the purse, the man who had had
most to do apparently with the plot
against the priuce, was the man who
killed M. de Bullion.
"Well," said the other, "Vandal is a
I Parisian and knows a thing or two."
The footsteps of the two speakers
were now heard close to the little door.
Buckford, remembering the remark,
"Let's take a look at this one," lay
down on the floor and assumed a posi
tion nearly like that in which be had
before been lying.
A key souuded In the lock, and the
door opened.
"He has not moved
No one came near him. One glance
sufllced to prove to the two men that
he had been lying in that position since
he had been brought to the room.
The door was again shut and the lock
Buckford slowly opened his eyes to
make sure no one had remained in his
room. He saw no one and sprang to
his feet and applied bis ear at the key
hole again.
His heart was heavy, for he realized
now that Monroe had been killed. This
brought vividly to his mind the danger
in which he stood, and. his nerves be
came strouger as he drew himself to
gether and resolved to combat this
brotherhood of crime with all the skill
and energy he possessed.
He heard the voices again.
"What time did ills highness say he
would be here?" asked one.
"Oh, you canuot limit his highness to
a moment. Casparln Is the most un
certain of meu. But he will be here
soon, no doubt."
So there was another highness in the
game. Buckford was using bis ears
and brains now as he had never use|
them before.
This Casparln, whom they called his
highness, could not be the Prince of
Deneslla, against whom they had plot
Monroe had told him who the Prince
of Deneslla was. He had described the
beauty of the Princess Marie Alexia.
Buckford was more than ever resolved
to defeat the plot against them.
"It is unfortunate that Vandal was
shot," said one of the voices. "That
American did some damage before we
got him."
"Yes, but It was lucky he did not kill
Vandal. The other did not matter so
"Good!" said Buckford to himself.
"I am glad I killed one. I wish I had
killed Vandal. I may have another
crack at him yet."
Another step was heard outside and
-then oiiothAr
Buckford now turned his head to get
a peep through tl:e accommodating
He saw b::t nnall portion of the
outer room. It v/ns well furnished,
had a table nud chairs in the ccntcr,
and in the chairs sat two men. One
of these was tho man he had shot,
Vandal, and the other was one of tho
two who had been previously talking.
In another portion of the room, hid
den from Buckford's sight, were two
more, one who had been there before
and one a newcomer.
"Well," said a voice, "our game hai
beeu spoiled
Paris. That dashed
American by bis meddling lias aroused
tin? police. We cannot do a thing now
until the prince leaves Paris." The
voice sounded familiar to Buckford.
The person speaking was the pretend
ed agent of police.
"Then j°our highness has not given
up the idoa?" said the voice of Vandal.
"Glvon It up?"
A hm-sh volco followed the words.
"Did jou ever know Casparln Rock
inlUive to give up an Idea until he had
made It a success?"
Buckford thrilled again. So this
speaker was Casparln Rockmllllve.
The Incognito of the Prince of Denes
lla was the Count of Rockmllllve.
They were, then, relative* of each oth
er. The plot against the Prince of
Deneslla was beginning to take shape
and substance. Buckford had hereto
fore been working against a vapor of
suspicion. Now he was gaining a sub
stantial knowledge of what the plot
"My Illustrious brother and sister
have already determined to leave Paris
and return to Deneelia," said the voice
of Casparln. "They will undoubtedly
take up their residence In the palace
at Trolle, the capital, until the birth of
the heir."
And It is this event that your hlgh
neM must prevent?"
For a moment there waa silence.
"I am not prepared to say," came the
slow, steely voice of Caaparln Rock
mllllve, "that I wish particularly to
destroy my sister-in-law, the Princess
Margaret Had I been the heir to the
throne of Deneelia instead of my broth
er I would have been the husband of
kargaret Granville, but the mighty
ambition of the American heiress rose
even to the throne itself, and she took
my more fortunate brother. Yet, even
to accomplish my designs and win the
throne of Deneslla for myself, I will
sacrifice her. But I prefer, as I had al
ready made clear when the bungling

time to accomplish tbls. I had sup
posed to find it easier in Parle, where
these things are done without difficulty
as a rule, than in Trolle, where the en
ergetic Duvally has his myrmidons at
all times on the alert.
"I know now, however, that the work
cannot be done in Paris. We must
wait till we reach Trolle. Then Duval
ly himself must go. And with him out
of the way, we can easily reach the
Buckford became more and more ab
sorbed. He now felt a national inter
est In the affair. He was fighting now
not only for the life of a prince and
princess, but for the inheritance of the
child of an American glrL
He remembered now when Margaret
Granville, one of the most beautiful
and richest of American girls, married
Prince Charles of Deneslla. He was
not then the ruling prince. The match
was a love match, the wedding a quiet
one, and Buckford had thought little of
it at the time. And now he was listen
ing to the brutal details of a dreadful
plot against his fair countrywoman.
His fists clenched, his teeth were set
firmly together, and he lost even his
last lingering regret that he had be
come involved in a case that so seri
ously threatened his life.
"I will get out of this alive," he said,
'and I will meet this wonderful Duval
ly, and between ns we'll see what can
be done."
'I suppose, then, your highness,
said one of the men, "that we are
now released from all connection with
the case. If 60, what about our re
ward for what we have endeavored to
There was a low sarcastic laugh
from Prince Casparln.
"It Is not the rule usually," he said,
to reward failures In matters of this
kind. Nor Is it advisable to have sev
eral sets of confidants In various parts
of the world. I have laid before you
all my plans and have named the sev
eral rewards you may expect If I am
enabled by your assistance to make
myself the ruling prince of Deneslla. I
think, gentlemen, It will be much bet
ter for all concerned for you to go
with me to Deneslla and there carry
out the plana that have been interrupt
ed here."
"Trolle li not Paris," said one. "We
would not have the assistance of the
brotherhood, who do our bidding with
out even wishing to know the object.'
'But I have willing servitors lu De
neslla," said Casparln. ''They arc not,
think, as shrewd as my Parisian
friends, but they will do In emergen
cies. I wish, however, to confine the
secret to us tour. It is enough, Four
men who know the truth will be
enough for me to carry when I come to
the throne."
Then if we attempt that which Is far
more dangerous and difficult than what
we agreed to do," said Vandal, "It Is
right that our rewards should be in
creased accordingly. For myself, I
have seen the Princess Marl: Alexia.
If you become ruling prince of Denes
lla, I should desire to become your
brother-in-law. One does not assassi
nate his brother-in-law so quickly as
an outsider."
"But In the case before us It Is the
brother," said Casparln, with a cruel
laugh. "What you ask is Impossible.
I know that Marie Is the fairest girl lq
all Europe. But her hand must go to
Russia. In the plans 1 have mapped
out for the future greatness of Denes
lla I have absolute need of Russian as
sistance and backing. Why can you
net be content with the wealth and po
sition I have offered? And, as for a
lovely bride, there Is one who Is second
only to Marie. That Is Adrla Volner,
the fiancee of Bosso Duvally. She Is a
beauty after the same style as H&rlc
and will suit you as well."
"I suppose I must be content," said
Vandal. "Then I am to receive a mil
lion francs, a high position among your
advisers and this beautiful Adrla Vol
per for a bride?"
"Yes, and these, our two able friends
and aids, shall each receive a half ptfj
lion francs and their pick of Deneellan
beauties if they wish to marry and set
tle In my country."
"That is a fair offer," said one.
"What do you say, Reber?"
Buckford started. One voice had all
along seemed strangely familiar, but
the exciting circumstances made It Im
possible to recall where he had heard
It It flashed upon him.
Reber was the man who had met blm
on the bridge and Introduced him into
mis circle or l'oscinatmg cuttnroats.
"I think It Is fair," suld Reber. "But
that face of yours, friend Robello,
would not be pleasing to the young
Denesllnn beauty."
"Let my face alone!" growled the
mau called Robello,
and Buckford made
a mental note.
"Now," he said, "I know tho four
plotters by name and three of them by
sight. Vandal and Reber I have met.
That Is Robello sitting with Vandal,
but his back Is toward me. However,
he must be ugly, or Iteber's remark Is
pointless. And the fourth Is Casparln,
brother of the Prince of Deneslla. And
what a quartet of precious scoundrels!
They at the bidding of this rascal Cas
parln will assassinate the prince be
fore his heir Is born In order to put
Casparln 011 the throne of the little
country. And not only the prince, but
an American woman and a beautiful
princess are In danger. Come, Buck
ford, you have work to do. And the
first thing to do Is to escape from this
place. How the devil Is that to be
done, 1 wonder?"
His soliloquy was Interrupted by an
other step and a heavy German voice.
Well. Monshure Meln Hcrr," said
the voice, "I did that Job well. Is It
not so?"
"Yes, but you must not come here.
You must keep away from us," re
plied Casparln.
Ho! That Is not so easy. Then
where am I to get the money on which
to live? I must no longer be seen in
the stables of the prince! I am not
to see you! What then, the river?"
•'Go to the devil!" growled Casparln.
"It Is most fortunate that there are
French gentlemen to help me. I would
not want a band of German aids. But
come. You did my bidding that time
and duped the two Americans almost
as well as I duped one. I will pay
you as I agreed, but stipulate that you
depart. Leave Paris, and do not go to
"Oh, then, thnt Is not bad," said tho
German, rattling a well filled purse.
"There is Germany."
"Yes. Go there, for God's sake!"
said Casnarln. and the others laughed.

Tbe only instance on record of a post
oQice being named after a patent medi
cine, was laBt year, when in Wetzel Co.,
W. Va., a new post office was establish
ed and named Kodol, after the famous
Kodol DyspepBia Oure, manufactured
by E. C. De\V itt & Co., of Chicago. It
had given such satisfactory results that
the name was unanimously selected by
the people for the new o|Uce and adopt
ed by the department at Washington,
D. C. This action was entirely volun
tary on the part of the community,
without any solicitation whatever from
the manufacturers of Kodol Dyspepsia
Cure. In fact the first knowledge they
obtained regarding tbe matter was when
they recived a letter bearing tbe poBt
mark "Kodol, W. Va.," and the con
tents fully explained the circumstances.

in an article in the Kanch andHtm^ Seattle,
Wash., of August 15, 1901, gives*the record
of the testing of five samples of milk from
dairymen using U. S. Cream Separators.
Tho five tests were as follows

An average of ,0!2 of one per centv
Please notice t!iat in. two!of the samples
the professor could find no fat, and in the
poorest one only .04. (Probably this dairy
man did not rua his separator according io
the directions.)
These records show that the
