The American's plan, as he whispers It to Emory, Is so adroit that the dO tectlve emits a triumphant whistle and says: "Gee whiz, Just the Idea!'1 "Fverv thing must be ready for to-; night,'' directs Haines. "No other Cor slcan steamer than the one on which we arrived will come today. By to morrow I hope to have the ladies rea- I sonably beyond pursuit." "All right. 1 think I can fix It for ' you." "Meantime." says Barnes, "see If : you can find what cables bearing on this matter have been received from Ajaeelo and to whom addressed ." That will be dlfllcult!" "Not if you nlve the telegraph clerks : enough money." "Yes, most anything can ho done Ihe way you spend money, Mr. Barnes." This last Issues from Finoiy's smiling lips as the American Is writing a j check. "I'll report progress to you not later than one p. 111.; that'll give you time for your arrangements." Coming from this to the Grand hotel, ; Barnes shortly strolls Into I.ady Char- 1 Iris' parlor and has an interview with that matron which places her in the seventh heaven of delight. "You think of going to Nice'''' lie lUggi its, he would have proposed some little Italian watering place, but knows thut the widow will only con sider Ihe spot where Van lliilovv, the young German diplomatist. Is locale, I. "Yes. I've concluded to remain there a few weeks until the season absolute ly ends, responds I.ady liartris, "only the good hotels are so cruelly expen sive." ' Well, there are some lovely and re tired villas on the little Bay of Vllle tranche, a .0 minutes' carriage drl"e from the Promenade dee Anglais, up posing von engage one'.'" "Do you think I'm a Croesus!" screams the widow In horror. "Do you want to ruin me? Do ou suppose I have your pookOtDOOk, Mr. Barnes of New York?" "That's exactly what I want you to suppose, my dear I.ady Chartrls. I'll pay for Ihe villa; you occupy It.

But now this devilish letter has Riven her such a bock thai wa dare not Immediately subject her to the fatigue of the long railway jmnney to Ixindon." As he -hows It to them and they try 1 to decipher it. Barnes hastily explains how lie had purchased 111" miitilued letter from Maud Chartrls with mnr- ' ions glaces. "And that awful child concealed I' from us'" cries Bald. "Her mother1 should be told Immediately." "What, and have I.ady Chartrla rush trembling!) back to London when. without danger to herself, she can do us a grand turn In Nice." In Nice? How?" Knld asks, aston ished "Tall you In a minute," replies her tlance. "The fourth quarter probably contains the Infernal portion that caused the bride's alarm for you, Kd win, for her fears 1 know are not so much for herself, as for you. Now I, with your assistance, am going first to make Knld and Marina safe." "How?" demands the Kngllsh girl, whose face has grown pallid. "By Lady Chartrls. She's going to take a secluded, water-washed villa at j Villefranche In her own name. House rentals have to be reported to the mu nicipal officials. With the name of Lady Chartrls attached to It, no one I will guess that we will occupy It!" "But Prunella Chartrls would fly from a vendetta as she would from the smallpox," says Kdwln. "Quicker!" cries Knld. "Quite right, but Prunella Chartrls shan't hear of a vendetta. We'll turn up at Villefranche, Kdwln, In about four days, leave the ladies there, am ply guarded, and then you and I. my jolly sieadog, will turn out attention to our Corslcan friends. We will he foot loose, and can do the hunting and kill 1 Ing, If necessary, and settle the affair In some way definitely and forever." Barnes', manner is lighter than his heart. "You'll find me with you," answers the Kngllsh lieutenant. "This Is the second time, because she loved me, that my bride has been driven to de spair. But how do you expect to get ECntd and Marina from Marseilles un- 1 noticed by the people that are already I hunting us, to the villa near Nice?" "What do wild animals do when they are hunted? Take to the water!" re markl Burton "That loaves no trail. Do you think. Anstruther, that you I can navigate a yacht?" "Do you think that you can shoot a pistol straight?" growls the British naval officer. "Very well. A yacht will be watting I for us, enguged by Kmory. There will be nothing but Kngllsh seamen on board, not over many of them. We'll j put the girls on board to-night.

"Well." iiavs the sailor, "we Jack tars have a custom of m-lting married before we start on a cruise. There are ministers In Marseilles as well as I London." Then Kdwln Anstruther I walks off, leaving Mr. Barnes con ! fronted wltli a young lady whose lilies I have changed to loses and the great est temptation of in, life.

"Don't think me forward," she whls pan sweetly, "but If you think you can take better care of me as your wife If you feel very much disappointed at the the delay." Her words are fal tared out bashfully. The accursed warning threatening death to her he marries rustles In his pocketbook as he crushes her te his breast. It stays the mad rush ol his passion. He forces himself tc calmness and whispers, his face pale his lips contoited: "For God's sake don't misunderstand me. I love you more dearly than ever, hut until this affair is settled. It would be an Infamy if I married you." "Good heavens! You fear they ars going to kill you?" "No, If there is any killing to he done. I propose to do ll." For an In slant he Is about to show her tho In fernal document. His hand Is already , on his breast pocket, when It stops, palsied. Barnes remembers the Im pulslve courage of his betrothed. "My Lord. If she saw this," he thinks "Knld would insist on marrying me off hand. She'd think it her duty to stanM as my wife In the front of the sklrm Ish and defy them." He says slowly almost brokenly: "You must trust m In this matter, dear one. Only nevet doubt my love." "Oh, that would be too horrible," she falters, "Burton, that would break my heart. You know more about the affair than I. You are the best Judge." Her lips are tendered to him again, but Barnes notes with a sigh their salute Is colder, and that tears are very near the divine cyeB of Knld Anstruther. Away from him, she wrings her white hands, and in the solitude of her chamber, walls: "Oh, everything seems to be chnnged since yesterday." Then the natural pride of the maiden coming to her, she says haughtily to herself: "The next proposition as to the naming of the wedding day shall come from you, Mr. Barnes of New York. CHAPTER III.

Kmory shortly brings to him an old canceled check upon n branch of the Credit Lyonnals hearing the signature of Correglo CTprlano Danella, but compar ing It with Marina's mutilated note and also the warning sent to him, the Americun cannot lie em tain of the handwriting. "Perhaps It has been disguised In both the epistles." suggests the detec tive, and continues his report. "As far as 1 can find from a clerk In the tele graph office, Rue de hi Republic, that 1 have sometimes hired before In such matters, there was a long cable caino from Bernardo Sallceti al Ajaccio to Correglo Danella late yaeterday even ing. It stuled that you an I your party were to arrive 011 the Constantlne; that you by your arts had murdered his brother, ami that Madame An struther, for the defense of her hus band against the Just vengeance of Tomaaao Monaldl, had produced his shooting by De Helloes cavalrymen. Tills is only as the operator remem bered It. My emissary didn't dare to try and get a duplicate of the dispatch, which was already on file. The French government keeps a sharp eye upon its telegraph offices." "Isn't it curious," asks Burton, "that there ls no account yet of the Corslcan tragedy in the French journals here'" "Politics!" answers the detective. "There is an election here shortly, and tiny fear some complication with tha Kngllsh government. 1 doubt If you will hear of the affair in an official way al all events not till after the election for deputies. Perhaps that's what makes young Sallceti so eager to do you up.

BRIDGE TOWER IS THE SCENE After Capturing Maniac Officers Are Forced to Carry Him to the Ground Big Crowd Wit nesses Fight. New York. --Three policemen on duly at the Williamsburg bridge had a desperate fight with a temporarily Insane Russian on top of the Brook lyn tower 111 feet above the river late the other afternoon. In the struggle of the man lo leap from the structure he nearly dragged the policemen over the brink. The Russian said later that he was Joseph Kratz, a tailor, S3 years old. and lived on Prospect street. Ills at tempted suicide was because he had an aged mother who was siarvlng be cause he couldn't gel nny work. Kratz first attracted attention In the foot path on the bridge on the Wll liamsbuig side by nourishing a razor and nctitiK ns If he was going to cut his throat. At the anchorage he climbed to the guard rail and reached one of the inner cables. There was no policeman around and many of the crowds moving In either direction stopped to watch his antics. There are hand ropes on each cable sa and Krutz alternately walked and crawled along the cables toward tie top of the Itrooklyn tower. Occa sionally he would stop and wave his razor. The spectators Anally drew the attention of policemen Smith, Mlllei and O'Donnell. Hy that time KraU was half way up the cable and thou sands of persons were watching him from the bridge, cars, vehicles, house tops, ferry boal s and other craft on the Kast side. It was evident to the policemen thai Kratz waa demented and none of them eared to fnllow him to ihe cable Michael Dowiing, superintendent ol i''e labonn ntl the bridge, suggested A Ss-Af I NiiHflKJ ; ll .M V I !t r-r They Fought Desperately 335 Feet Above the River. to the policemen that they ascend the tower li the Inside stairs so as to se cure the crazy man when he readied the top. The three were almost exhausted when they reached the platform. Kratz was still slowly moving upward on the cable, Ignorant of the presence of the pollee. wlio crouched down so as not to be seen. When the climber was near enough to the top the police, 11 Miti a signal, bounced out and grabbed him and dragged him over the edge, where they threw him to the jg floor. The dimensions of the plat form are U5xtr feet. There Is but a small iron rod around It. Kratz, who seemed possessed of real strength, made a lunge at Smith with the razor and cut his uniform Then 'he Kiissian treed himself and bounded for the north side tower, lie was about to jump from It to the river when tin- policeman gnbbed blm, and tlie deaparate struggle was renewed 1 The Russian struck mil with both UM lists, ami when lie could kicked the in policemen's stilus. When clinched f the four swayed bach and forth and time ami again were al the edge, with the Russian struggling with all his might to shove his defenders over. They were clinched most of the time and it was Willi difficulty that the policemen got then clubs Into play. When they did (lie insane man fought with even greater ferocity Blow after blow upon Ills head seemed not to fease him, bul ail of a mdden lie wilted, his arms dropped limply to his side, and he reeled forward, The policemen laid him out there where tin- battle bail been fought and sat down to rest and get their breath Befon Kratz revived his hands were handcuffed and his legs securely tied with a rope How to gei ilie man down from the top pnz.led tho officers After trying several ways thev llnally got Kratz onto Smith's back, and while the oth er policemen held on lo all end of the tope thai was around ihe Itussian's feet Stalled tlie sleep descent It took ilieiii nearly half an hour 10 get down to the bridge platform with their limp at burden.
