CHAPTER 111.
The Mystery of the Cheesemaker.
IN a kind of cellar, under a window, !
a man sat, bent over a peculiarly j
constructed machine of small j
wheels that spun with lightning
rapidity Every now and then he pa us
ed and scrutinized the minute object
he held in his fingers At length he
seemed satisfied, rose, stopped the ma i
chine and shuilied over to a cupboard {
Then lie sat down on a cot and began
to figure in a small notebook. The re- !
suit of his mathematics evidently j
pleased him.
In a corner behind curtains stood a !
furnace, a crucible, with powerful bellows
and chimney. It looked adapta- |
ble to tremendous heat pressure. The '
machine previously referred to waT an j
unfamiliar one to any but the ey( s of
those who have watched similar ma- j
cnines in Amsterdam unu uuueiuuw,
in Holland. It was a diamond cutting
and polishing machine. What the unusual
crucible brought forth remained
to be seen.
The diamond cutter rose again and
once more approached the cupboard
,
The Diamond Cutter
and gloated over his treasure, which
consisted of half a dozen perfect gems
perfectly cut and polished, but small.
"1 shall be rich some day."
Then came sudden transition from
joy to gloom, lie dared not go forth
openly to sell th&se gems, for he feared
that he woul 1 be looked upon us a
thief. The fact that these diamonds
were not registered would act against
him. The least they would uo would
b 10 lia'e him before riu> customs ollic;a!s
;:s a smuggler. And if lie told
the truth iris wonderful discovery
\u>:;iu become public property, and he
would be ruined.
"i aiiK'iin!iickyhe groaned, "i see

one in order to get anything. i will
sound Hassam Aii."
He had disposed of several geins
among pawnbrokers who were known
not to ask quest ions, but in these transactions
he had received but a fourth
of what tiie gems were worth. These
things contributed to his sudden rise
and fali 01" spirits. lie was also something
of a madman.
Presently he sniffed. There was a
faint odor of curds in the air. Beyond
the wall was a cheesemaker's shop,
and there one could buy anything from
? Camembert to what is known as a
Dutch cheese. The diamond cutter discovered
that he was hungry. So he
left his den, bought some cheese and
rye bread and returned, soon to begin
his labors again. During certain in-,
tervals of silence he heard without apparent
notice slight scratching sounds. :
The furnace began to glow? throwing !
nrvnn Inc linnH Onfi j
weiru ii^LiLs upwii uio nutv. ,
ic countenance.
When niirht came he went again to
I
his treasure and gave a cry of anguish, j
A gem was gone! He searched thor- ,
oughly, but could not find it. it could
not bo possible that he had made a j
mistake in the original counting. He
would go and have ??is friend Hassarn ,
Ali look into his crystal. There were
wonderful revelations made there, and,
Ilassam Ali reassured him that the'
gem would ho found
The next day, after Zudora had gone j
forth?to meet her lover. Elassam Ali
Was assured?Hassam Ali retired to
the mystic room. He was curious
keep fo^Rng in the <>; che eryatal.
llm was intensely superstitious
witboutfrealizing the fact Yet again
he saw/ the face, the same appeal in
it. Hys heart swelled with fury and
hate. } lie was beginning to hate his
niece,/for we invariably hate those we
have ; wronged or intend to wrong. ;
Whenever he saw her slender white
throajt a horrible, almost irresistible,
desire laid hold of him to rake that
white throat within his fingers and
cmsib the life out of it. At the same j
time he became vaguely atarmea lest
at some time or other he should sur- j
rentier to this mad desire. No. no!

ing Himself.
A thousapd times no! He must follow
without deviation the plans he
had mapped out Sooner or later he
would grain his ends without incriminating
Himself. She suspected noth
ing. Oim side of her was all keenness
and inAht, but the other side of her
was as guileless as a child, and to this
side he always played. He must wait,
tedious as waiting might be. Gold,
gold, yellow gold, the most beautiful
thing in the world; millions of shining
disks, all his. He suddenly shook him
self. He must smother these thoughts,,
this rampant desire, or he might over j
stop. Misers are full of strange cun j
i ning.
Zudora had given tier word to say
nj^iing about her great inheritance.
affa her TSyalty to her word was as
strong as hoops of steel.
Hassam Ali was an adept at disguising
himself, making himself unrecognizable.
A half dozen touches
of the brush, a muffler about his chin,
ard eren Zudora would fail to recog
nize him at first glance. He sallied
forth He was eager to learn wbat
Storm was doing. For the present
Storm was the main obstacle in lite
way. If he bccame Zudora's husband
goodby to the Trainor millions, wbeth
er Zudora lived or not. If Zudoru
married Storm clandestinely he was
/lntnrmirio/1 iinnn thMt knowledge t<:

inquiries at the bureau of licenses.

they idled away an hour or two build

i was the recipient of a hundred thou

between several hospitals. Fie wanted
it known that, aside from his business
relations, he wanted nothing of Olds

Storm became suddenly serious.
