CHAPTER XII
On the morning after the transac
lon last described Van Torps atten
tion was arrested by a sensational
scarehead about a thief and a ruby
worth 50000 Some disaffected col
league In London had known or
cleverly guessed where the stono was
that had been stolen from Mr Pin
noys and had Informed the police
the nice looking young fellow who
spoke like an English gentleman had
walked directly into the arms of the
plainclothes man waiting for him on
the pier In New York the stone had
been found sewn up in his waistcoat
and his pleasant career of liberty had
ended abruptly in a cell
Mr Van Tarp whistled softly as he
read the account a second time Then
ho neatly cut the column out of the
paper folded it with great precision
smoothed it with care and placed It in
his pocketbook next to a cheap little
photdgraph of Mmp da Cordova as
Juliet which he had bought in a
music shop in New York the day after
he had heard her for the first time
and had carried In his pocket ever
since
Ho took up the mutilated newspa
per and looked up and down the col
umns and among other Information I
I
which he gathered In a few moments
was the fact that LogotbeUs yacht
had passed Capt Saint Vincent going
east owner and party on board The
previous telegram had not escaped
him and if he had entertained any
doubts as to tho destination of tho
Krinna they vanished now Sho was
certainly bound for the Mediterranean

many steam yachts coming from Eng
land put Into Gibraltar for coal and
fresh provisions coal being cheaper
there than lu French and Italian
Ports and ho thought It very probable
that tho Erluna would do the same
he also made some deductions which
need not be explained yet The only
one worth mentioning here wns that
Logothetl would be likely to hear In
Gibraltar that tho ruby had been
found and was on Its way back to
England and that as ho would know
that Margaret would be anxious about
it since he had already given It to
her he would hardly let the occasion
of communicating with her go by As
for writing from Gibraltar to any
place whatsoever In tho hope that a
letter will arrive In less than a week
It is sheer folly Mr Van Torp had
never tried It and supposed It pos
sible as It looks but he was tolerably
sure that Logothetl would telegraph
first and had perhaps done so al
ready for the news of his passing
Cape Saint Vincent was already 24
hours old
This was precisely what had hap
pened When Mi Van Torp opened
his door ho fame upon Margaret and
Mrs Hiishmure on the landing on tho
point of going out for a walk and a
servant had just brought the prima
donna a telegram which she wa read
Ing aloud so that the American counl
not help hearing her
Cruising till wanted she read
quickly Ruby found Address
yacht Erlnna Naples
She heard Van Torp close his door
though she had not heard him open It
and turning round she found herself
face to face with him Her eyes wore
sparkling with anger
Very hurry he said I couldnt
help hearing °
Its of no consequence for I should
have told you Margaret answered
briefly
lIe argued well for himself from her
tone and manner but he choso to
show that he would not force his com
pany upon her just then when she
was in a visible rage and instead of
stopping to exchange more words he
passed the two ladies hat In hand and
bowing lather low after his manner
ho went quietly downstairs
Margaret watched him till he disap
peared
I like that man she said as if to
to herself but audibly I cannot
help it
Mrs Hushmore was more than de
lighted but had tact enough not to
make any answer to a speech which
had probably not been meant for her
ears
Perhaps she said you would
rather not go out just yet my dear
Margaret was grateful for tho sug
gestion and they turned back Into
their looms
Meanwhile Van Torp had reached
the door of the hotel and found Lady
Maud standing there with her parasol
up for the sun was streaming In
I was waiting for you she said
simply as soon as ho reached her
side and sho stepped out into the
street I thought you would come
down and I wanted to speak to you
for I did not get a chance last night
They were botli watching me prob
ably because they thought I was Ill
and I had to chatter like a magpie to
keep up appearances
You did It very well Van Torp
said H If I had not seen your face
at the window when I got out of tho
automobile yesterday 1 shouldnt have
guessed there was anything wrong
Hut there something very
wrong something I can hardly bear
to think of though T must until I
know the truth
They turned into the first deserted
street they came to
I
I I dare say I can give a guess at
I what it Is Van Torp answered grave
ly I went to see him alone yester
I day on purpose before he started and
I must say If It wasnt for the beard
I Id feel pretty sure
He had a heard when I married
I him and It was like thatjust like
I that
i j I Lady lauds voice shook audibly
I for she felt cold even In tho sun
I shine
1 didnt know Van Torp answered
I
That alters tho case If were not
mistaken what can 1 do to help you 1
Lets sec You only had that one
I
look at him through the window Is
that so
Yes lint the window was open
I
and its not high above the ground
I and my eyes are good lie took off
Ills hat when he said goodby to you
I
and 1 saw his face as distinctly as I
see yours When youve been mar
ried to a manslw laughed harshly
yOU cannot be easily mistaken
about him when youre as near as
that That Is the man I married Im
intimately convinced of it but I must
bo quite sure Do you understand 1
I Of course If hes really Loven i
inns oven a Jotter actor than I used
I to think he was If hes not the re I
semblance is just about the most ex
traordinary thing Its true I only I
baW Loven three or four times In my
life but I saw him to look at him
then and the last time I did when he
made tho row In Hare court ho was
doing most of the talking so I remem
ber his voice
Theres only one dltliculty Lady
Maud said Some one else may have
bean Wiled last June It may even
havo been the pickpocket who had
stolen his pocket book Such things
have happened or do In books 3ut
this Is certainly the man you mot In
Now York and who sold you tho stone
you gave me Is ho not
Oh certainly And that was at
tho end of July and I oven was killed
late in Juno
Yes That only leaves a month
for him to have been to Asia thatF
absurd
Utterly totnlly and entirely Impos
slble asseverated Mr Van lump
One of two things Either this man
Is your husband and If ho Is hes not
the man who found tho rubles In Asia
Or else If he Is that man bos not
Loven I wish that heathen girl had
been here yesterday She could have
told In a minute Shod bettor have
been here anyway than cutting around
the Mediterranean with that fellow
Logothetl
Yes Lady I Maud answered grave
ly Hut about myself if Leven Is
alive what Is my position mean 1
driit really quite know whore I am
drt U
Anybody but you would have
thought of marrying again already ob
served Mr Van Torp looking up side
ways in her eyes for she was taller
than he Then youd really be In n
bad fix wouldnt you 1 Hut as It Is I
dont see that it makes much differ
ence The mans going under a false
name so ho doesnt mean to claim
you as his wile nor to try to get a
divorce again as he did before lies
Just going to bo somebody else for his
own good and hell get married that
way maybe Thats his business not
yours 1 dont suppose youre going
to gut up In church and forbid tho
banns are you
I wouhl like a shot said Lady
Maud So would you Im sure
Think of the other woman
flails so answered Van Torp
without enthusiasm However weve
got to think about you and the pres
ent and decide what well do I sup
pose tho best thing Is for mo to put
him off with some excuse so that you
can come on tho yacht
Please do nothing of the sort
cried Lady Maud
Hut I want you to come objected
her friend
1 mean to come Do you think Im I
afraid to meet him
Van Torj looked at her In some sur
prise and not without admiration
There Isnt anybody like you any
way he said quietly But theres
going to be a cUeus on that ship If
bos Leven he added If he makes
a fuss Ill read the riot act and lock
him up
Oh no answered Lady Maud who
was i used to Mr Van Torps familiar
vocabulary why need there bo any
trouble Youve not told him I am
coming you say Very well If he
sees mo suddenly after ho has been
on board a little while hell certainly
betray himself and then I shall be
sure Leven is a man of the world
was or IsGod knows which But
If It is he and ho doesnt want to be
recognized hell behave as if nothing
had happened after the first moment
of surprise At least I shall be cer
tain I must be positively sure
whether Leven Is alive or dead for
what I havo got back In these last
two months Is my whole life A mere
recognition at first sight and at ten
yards is not enough It may bo only
a marvelous resemblance for they
say every one has a double some
where in the world
They used to say too that If you
met your double one of you would
die observed Van Tarp Those
things are all stuff and nonsense of
course I was just thinking Well
he continued dwelling on his favorite
monosyllable If you decide to come
on the yacht and If the man doesnt
blow away we shall know the truth In
three or lour days Irom now and
thats a comfort And even If he turns
out to he Leven maybo wo can man
age something
Lady Maud chose not to ask what
her friend thought ho could manage
for she had glanced at his face when
he had spoken and though it was half
turned away from her she saw his
expression and it would have scared
a nervous person She did not like
him to bu in that mood and was sor
ry that she had brought him to It
Hut Mr Van Torp who was a strong
man and had seen more than ono af
fray In his ranching days cSjld not
help thinking how uncommonly easy
It would bo to pick up Count Kralln
sky and drop him overboard on a dark
night next week when tho Lancashire
Lass would be doing 22 knots and
there might be a little weather about
to drown the splash
CHAPTER XIII
The millionaire did things hand
somely Ho offered to motor his party
to Venice and as Margaret declined
because motoring was bad for her
voice he telegraphed for a comfort
able special carriage and took his
frlcnds down by railroad and they
wen all very luxuriously comfortable
Krallnsky was not on board tho
yacht when they came alongside at
sunset In two gondolas following tho
strainlaunch which carried the load
of luggage and the two maids
Stomp led tho way and Mr Van
Torp took the three ladles to their
cabins first Mrs Rushmore who was
surprised and delighted by the rich
and gay appearance of hors for It
was entirely decorated in pink and
goldOn
On the wrlting table stood a tall
S i p IIiIt I
t II
gilt vase full of Immense pink roses
with steins nearer four foot long than I
three Mrs UiiBhnioro admired them
very much
How did you know that I love
roses above nil other lowers she
asked My dear Mr Van Torn you
are a 1 wizard Im sure
Lady Maud and Margaret entered
and kept up u polite little chorus of
admiration but thor both felt uneasy
us to what they might Iliul In their re
spective cabins for Margaret hated
pink 1 and Lady Maud detested gild
ing and neither of them was especial
ly I fond ot roses They left Mrs Hush
more vevy happy In her quarters and
wont on Lady Mauds tdrn cumo next
and she began to understand when
sine saw a quantity of sweet wood vio
lets on her table just loosened In an
old Murnno glass beaker
Thank you she said bonding to
smell them How kind of you
There was not n trace of gliding or
pink i silk The cabin was paneled and
lilted In a rare natural wood of a 1
creamywhite tint
Hog pardon my lady said Stomp
This and Miss Domes cabin com
municate by this door and the door
aft goes to the dressing roomim Each
cabin has one chile Independent and
this boll rings tho pantry my lady
and this ono rings Miss Oonnos
maids cabin as I understand that
your ladyship has not brought her own
maid with her
Very nice said Lady Maud smell
ing the violets again
Stomp threw open tho door of com
mm lent ion to the cabin he had pro
1 wired I I for tho prima donna The two
cabins occupied the whole beam of tho
vessel excepting tho sixfoot gangway
on each side and as she was one of
the largest yachts afloat at tho time
there was no lack of loom
Carnations at this lime of year
pried Margaret seeing half on arm
ful of her favorite dark red ones In a
silver winecooler before the mirror
You really seem to know everything
Thank you so much I
She burled her handsome face In the
splendid flowers and drew In a deep
warm breath full of their sensuous
perfume tho spicy scent of a laden
clovetree under o tropical sun
Thank you again she said en
thusiastically Thank you for every
thing tho delightful Journey and this
lovely room and tho carnations
She stood up suddenly to her height
In sheer pleasure and held out her
hand to him Ho pressed It quietly
and smiled
Do as you would he done by he
said Tints tho companys rule
She laughed at the allusion to their
agreement ot which Lady Valid know
nothing for they had determined to
keep It secret for him present
Mr Van Torp had not found an op
portunity of speaking to Lady Maud
alone but ho wished her to know
when Krallnsky might bo expected
Stomp he said before leaving tho
cabin have you heard from the
count
Yes sir Ho got tern this morn 1
I
Ing from Vienna In his motor sir and
sent his things with his man and hla N
I
compliments to you and the ladles
and ho will come on board In time for
dinner That was all 1 think sir
SI
Lady Maud heard and madu ft
scarcely perceptible movement of tho p w
load by way of thanks to her friend r
while listening to Margarets onthusl +
istlc praise of everything she saw Mr
Von Torp and his man departed Just
as Potts appeared accompanied by a 4 t
very neat looiting English stewardess 7
In a smart white cap Lady Maud warm t l
unusually silent hut she spilled pleas
antly at what Margaret said and the
latter intuit up her mind to drown her
anger against Logothotl and nt the
I same time be avenged on him In nn j
orgy of luxurious comfort seaair and
sunshine Tho capacity of a perfectly
healthy and successful singer for en t + r w
Joying everything from a halfpenny f alb
bun and a drive In a hansom to a mil
lloimlros yacht and tho most expen
sive fat of the land has
or sea never I
been measured And if thoy do laws f t
terrible tits of temper now and then II t
who shall blamo them 1 Thoy are al rl
ways sorry for It because It Is bad
for the voice
Mr Van Torp I reached his quarters
and prepared to scrub and dress com
fortably after a week at Hnyreuth and ry
III railroad journey l11t
Lady Maud did not begin to dress at
once as there was plenty of time be
fore dinner she loft tho stewardess to t
unpack her things and came out upon t
the sixfoot gangway outside her cab
in door to breathe tho nlr for It was 1
warm The city lay half a mllo away
In the afterglow of tho sunset Y
lint she felt none of that healthy
pleasure which a lovely sight naturally
gave her Sho was tit a crisis of her
life and the exquisite evening scene
was the battlellold of a coming strug
gle with herself or with another she
hardly knew In half an hour or In y j p
nn hour at most sho was to sit at ta
ble with a man she fully believed to
bo tho husband for whom she had j
been wearing mourning out of mero i l vr
decency but with tho profound Inward
satisfaction of being free
