At other times Blair could have easily freed himself and throttled the con tumacious Smythe. But he was weak from the injury he had suffered, and he pressed his baud to his throbbing head and regarded tlie rebellious law yer furiously. And then the door opened, and a group of firm faced, well built men en tered. 'T beg your pardon, my lord," said the first of the intruders. "1 am in spector Forde of Scotland Yard. This U> on American detective, and he has brought proper requisition papers, and this warrant has been issued against you." A heavy set mau who towered be hind the dapper inspector stopped for ward. "I arrest you for the murder of Dr. Henry Lee in Virginia three years ago," he said. Blair moaned and staggered back against the wall. This, then, was the end. Blake, the Richmond detective, bad struck nt last! Without a word Blair stopped for ■ward and held out his bauds. For once In his life he was cowed, beaten, "Oh. not that, my lord!" said the lit tle Inspector agitatedly. "It wouldn't lie necessary to put handcuffs on a man of your station or anything of that sort, my lord. Doubtless there is some terrible mistake, which will all t»o rectified, my lord, and I hope you will not hold it against us, ray lord, that wo were compelled lo do our duty?" Vivian had heard the strange tread <>t several men upon the stairs, anil the startled butler bad burst in uihjii ber with the crushing information that officers from Scotland Yard had asked for Ids lordship, and it was not con cerning the thief who had assaulted tils lordship, they had said. "For." the trembling butler added, "that was fin very first thing I asked them, my lady!" Vivian run from her boudoir, her beautiful hair in disorder around her fair shoulders. One glance told her that fate, wenv er of destinies, had called Blair to nc count for his crimes She shrieked and fell into his arms. In prosperity, in their wild schein lags, she had not loved him as site did notv in the hour of his downfall and humiliation. At a nod from the inspector Blair's valet brought his hat. stick and street coat. One lust, passionate parting em brace and Blair walked with Ids cap tors down the great Gothic stairs as a felon—where he late had trod as a no ble of the realm! De Vaux escaped scot free, but with nut the diamond. Wondering if ho had been recognized under the vizor of the helmet or by Smythe. he laid low for several days and then got out Ids mo torcar and gave Ids chauffeur orders to speed for Dover, where ho would take boat and escape across the chan nel to France. Bul It was fated De Vaux should not galn Paris for some time yet to come, nor alone, for ns Ids car sped swiftly through Mayfair it struck a taxicab with terrific force at a street intersec tion. The heavy fender ou De Vuux's big open car saved it from Injury, but the lighter taxicab went over on Its side and flic uniformed bobby and the driver on the front seat were thrown to the ground. From the uppermost door of the over turned taxicab a stalwart figure clam bered. It was Blair, sometime earl of Stanley! In bis hand he held a heavy walking stick, and, acting with swift, intuition, he turned and thrust the stick through the haudlc of the door and behind the taximeter, fastening the door hard and tight. Within I he inullled cries of two men could be beard. De Vaux sprang from his auto and faced Blair in surprise for one brief moment. And then the fellowship of the desperate was swift ly invoked. "The traps have goi aie!" cried Blair. And the two adventurers sprang £nto the big, undamaged car, which, at a sign from De Vaux, the chauffeur backed from the wrecked, overturned taxi, turned iu the broad street and darted away. Ten minutes later, from the rooms of Do Vaux, Blair scut the latter, bis sworn ally now—sin It are the strange decrees of destiny- to Vivian with a note. It read': Our old friend He Vaux has saved me. You hold the fort as Countess or Stanley Do Vaux and 1 will search for the diamond from the sky. Lovingly, It. may be understood that.'in all the desperate intimacy that followed. De Vaux never let Blair or Vivian know that lie was the mysterious mailed as sailant who had struck down Blair in Ids coronation robes and bad borne away the great jewel, only lo drop It iu his (light. We arc not beaten : BLAL et ! ♦ Stupid iu some tilings, bul with the I wisdom of serpents in others, Smythe I studied the strange documents, evi dently placed in hiding iu the deer head by the adventurer-colonist, the first Sir Arthur Stanley, in' Virginia, three centuries before. The Harding gypsy family free gave strange confirmation to the other an tique documents. There was Rachel Harding, born in Keutlshtown, Eng land. in 10(111. A sou was born to ber, christened Matthew, after lier own fa ther. Then descended from this Matthew. through all the generations, the Mat thew born in Virginia in IStiO. This Matthew Harding'married one Hagar Lee of mint lier gypsy tribe In America. There was noted a sou born to these two, but the record was blotted here on the ancient parchment of the gypsy genesis. A mouth after the Earl of Stanley's sensational arrest and still more sensa tional escape Vivian, countess of Stan ley, migrated secretly to Paris and Smythe sailed for America with much ou his mind. He searched the ancient colonial records in obscure Virginia parishes and, with the wisdom of serpents, gathered all Ids proofs. These proofs were that Arthur Stan ley. born son of Ilagar and Matt Hard ing. was strangely Arthur Stanley In name and right and in name and right the direct descendant in a direct line of the adventurer Sir Arthur Stanley sa • ■ - ' * Pm V 1 ■ v.ji W : A V i?l v 's" ,0 jÇ* I •-V U*.™. x ■ • * ht:?

These proofs and the diamond Smythe brought to Esther and Arthur. "It's all romantic and very pleas ant," said Smythe. "to be a Jolly king and queen of the gypsies and to dwell in Arcadian and primitive simplicity with these odd people, don't you know, hut you hare « duty to perforin, a duty to your lineage, and a greater duty to your child. You must accept your rank and the diamond from the sky that 1 here restore to you." "We want »one of these things for ourselves or for our child," said Ar thur, drawing Esther to him tenderly. "Station and wealth bring nothing but sorrow and heartache. The diamond from the sky has been a curse and not a charm against harm. "It cannot be thrown back to the sky, so let us east it Into the sea and rid the earth of. its evil presence. As for the earldom, for myself and my son I deem Jt Netter that we be plain American eUMtans rather than English earls." And Esther this Judgmem. "But, your lordship," expostulated §mythe. while Arthur smiled at the title, "your lordship may remain an American citizen and still legally hold a British title. I can cite you an in stance, several of them.'' Ami Smythe did so. The skeptical may consult Burke's peerage for the precedence in ques earnestly coincided in \ ■ ■■■ jig-; ■M ■ £ i > ; S ' c ■ ■< C f. ■ ■p $ fri -t • i - / H y r—,, A» * ' y ■ Ur w. ■.j ~.c£\ y & *,• s . > l <. i.i Vi W ' mrr 1 * ,>;N : M -v ■ 57 i % î i ■>: v ' f 4 H i » Mi li* » *.i m: Qunbba Was Now Ruler In Romany. tlou. "Besides." Smythe went on, "you deal doubly unjust!) with her ladyship. Hep ladyship should at least be mistress of Stanley Hall, as was her mother!" And so the world and station called Arthur and Esther Stanley buck to Stanley Hall, and thus the wrongs of many a grievous year were righted. Perchance the dead, whose living hearts had loved and bated, were more at ease for this. The guilt of Blair, a fugitive some where on the continent, had been known some mouths. Arthur, Creed from all suspicion of the murder of Dr. Lee, received at Stanley Hall, with Es ther and their infant son. every heart felt greeting a generous miuded Vir ginia welcome could offer. A great reception was given them by the high of Fairfax and the hum ble. Stanley Hall, brave In flags, saw happy throngs upon its lawns and within its stately walls again. Vying with the Fairfax band, the gypsy orchestra, led by Quabba, now ruler in Romany Instead of King Ar thur and Queen Esther, abdicated In his favor, played again the wild Ro many wedding strains. Arthur and Esther. with the ever attentive Smythe beside them, held the little American earl In their arms. On his baby breast gleamed the great jewel of the Stanleys, and ever his flower faced young mother murmured to her self and to him. "Oh. child of my heart, not a diamond, but a mother's prayer Is the true 'charm ajminst harm!' " •• So sped the happy day. and so the soft Virginia twilight gathered. Be neath the lanterns' glow upon the lawns the murmur and the pleasant laughter hushed, ns to the accompani ment of violin and guitar a clear yourg voice thrilled the dusk—ah. how fitting ly tile singer never knew—with the ap pealing words of that sweet old mel ody : The tale of one who wandered over earth By land and sea. by home and foreign shore. Until Into vnnr eyes he gar.ed and knew His search was o'er, his search was o'er Esther's bosom stirred with a happy sigh. Arthur's strong arms were about her, the child smiled on her breast and the loyal lips of Qua 11 bn kissed her hand ere yet ho stole quietly away with the hnralde gypsy neo^le. The joy that transflgnreth all sor row. sin and death filled Esther's tender heart. It seemed to her that the loving gaze of Hagar rested on them in the dusk in benediction. And so love and peacq dwell again nt Stanley Hall The little American earl, son of Arthur and Esther, has the diamond from the sky. and all ends happily as Hagar prayed—exeept that somewhere in the world, hidden and perhaps waiting to strike. Is the des perate and bitter Rialr With him are his cunning ally. De Vaux, and also Vivian, she who is the Incarnation of desire for the diamond from the sky!
