by the circus men wielding bludgeons
and shouting the circus men's battle
cry, "Hey, Utibc!"
Hiding the diamond In tlio pocUot of
his sweater coat, his hand clasped upon
It, Snnkey fccemed to be but one of the
ninny frightened, fleeing spectntors
speeding from tho scene of tragedy nnd
riot, I'mitlng, he gained tlio street,
swung himself aboard it crowded street

Into the place, clambered up tlio ladder
and hid his booty, tliu diamond from

tho loft.
Qunbba had seen Ksthcr safely to her

quarters where he Iodised the stable
uttering lamentations In reaction of the
excitement ho had been through.
At the entrance to the stable yard he

heard of the riot call that had brought
the reserves to the scene of tragedy and
battle at the circus. Tho policeman dis
cussed the whole exciting aflalr with
Qunbba, who hud been a spectator.
Tlio two came down the alley together,
mid Sunkey, the stableman, peering
panic stricken from a crack in thu loft
wall, saw them, and his guilty con
science prompted the harrowing
thought that ho hud been 'Identified as
tho thief who had dragged the diamond
from the claws of death and that the
search for him was on.
IQuubba and the policeman called his
name, but Sunkey did not answer. IIo
lay trembling In tho loft In an ague of
fear. Qunbba and the policeman left
tlio stable without looking Into the loft
and walked up the alley to tho street,
and Sunkey dropped down the ladder,
climbed tho buck fence and hid lit an
other part of town, leaving tho dia
mond beneath the hay,
SunUoy reasoned if he wero located
nnd searched the diamond would not
be. found upon him nnd he would take
tho ttrst opiKirtunlty of retrieving It
and steal uwny with it by night.
I'nrtlng from the policeman, Quubbn
returned to tho stable, angrily uttering
maledictions on the absent Sunkey. for
Clnrcnce, tho monkey, wus chattering
with hunger. The pony hud not been
watered, and his hayrack wus empty.
Qunbbu attended to these duties, then
clambered to tho loft and thoved down
hay Into tho empty rack. Qunbba gave
full measure of hay to tho pony. IIo
did not know that in the generous
measure of hay ho shoved down Into
the rack thero fell nnd lodged hidden nt
Itho bottom of tho rack, Just over tlio
manger, tho diamond from tho sky!
That very morning Arthur, distrust

This telegram wns delivered nt the

Illair, lu charge, received nil business

opened tho envelope cautiously nt the

They placed the telegram lu the type

Vivian. "I believe Uuraud might have

Illair grimly. "IIo had better keep his
hands off tho diamond from, the sky."
"And wo had better get our hands on
it," said Vivian: "What witchery Is
on it? It comes and goes llko tho
devil's talisman."
"It will only rest nnd stay with a true
Stnnley," muttered lllalr.
Vivian reguided him strangely, but
snld nothing. If this wero true, why
had the diamond from the sky avoided
lllalr ns though It wero ii living thing
that wriggled from his grasp?
Arthur was clay In the hands of the
conspirators again when tho doctored
message from Hlnko leached him. Ar
thur believed now that It was true, ns
thoso nround him Inferred his obses
