BggggsKnsntgttgsatgjKsaeaaa II The Lone I ) 1 Wolf 11 nrnr i By E LOUIS JOSEPH VANCK (Copyright, by Louis JoscphVOCfJ 1 CHAPTER IV. I A Stratagem. When tho maltro d'hote! had shown him all over the establishment Inno cently enough, en route, furnishing blm with a complete list of his other guests and their rooms, memoranda readily registered by a retentive mem oryLanyard choso the bedchamber next that occupied by Roddy, In the - second story. Tho consideration Influencing this selection was, of course, that so situ ated he would bo in a position not only to keep a? eye on the man from Scot land Yard, but also to determine whether or not Roddy were disposed to keep an cyo on htm. In those days Lanyard's faith In himself was a beautiful thing. Ho could not bavo enjoyed the Immunity ascribed to tho Lone Wolf so long b ho had without gaining a powor of sturdy self-confidence In addition to a certain degree of temperate con tempt for tho spies of the law and all their ways. Hevlowlng tho scene In the restau rant. Lanyard folt measurably war ranted in assuming not only that nod dy waB Interested In De Morblhan, but that the Frenchman was well awaro of that Interest. And he resented sin cerely his Inability to feel as confident that tho count, with his gossip about tho Lono Wolf, had been moroly seek ing to'dlvert Roddy's intorest to pu tatlvely larger game. It was Just pos sible that Do Morblhan's Identification or Lanyard with that mysterious per sonage, at least by Innuendo, had been unintentional. Dut somehow Lanyard ,. didn't believe It bad. j ' Howover, one would suroly learn f something Illuminating beforo very long. Tho business of a sleuth Is to sleuth, nnd sooner or later Roddy must surely mako some move to Indi cate the quarter wherein his real In terest lay. Just 'at present, reasoning from noises audlblo through the bolted door that communicated with tho adjoining bedchamber, tho business of a sleuth jSeemed to comprleo going to bed. Lanyard, shaving and dressing, could ' distinctly hear a tuneless voice con tentedly humming "Sally In Our Al ley," a rendition punctuatod by one beavy thump, and then another, ami then by a heartfolt sigh of roller as Roddy kicked off his boots and fol lowed. by. the tapping Qt Blpe atalnit 'tth DIX ir. Oil srntc-bars, the complaint of a window being lowered for ventilation, the click of an clcctrlc-llght switch, and the creaking of hod springs. Finally, and beforo Lanyard had fin ished dressing, tho man from Scotland Yard began placidly to snore. Of course, ho might well bo bluffing, for Lanyard had taken pains to let Roddy know that they were room neighbors by announcing his selection In loud tones close to tho communicat ing door Rut this was a question which the adventurer meant to havo answered before ho went out. Jt was hard upon twelve o'clock when tho mirror on tho dressing table assured him that he was at length In tho habit and apparel of a gentleman of elegant nocturnal leisure. Rut If ho approved tho figure ho cut. It ai mainly because clothes Interested him and ho reckoned his own Impeccable Of their tenant ho was feeling Just then a bit less sura than he had half an hour since; his tegnid was lower ing nnd mistrustful. Ho was, In short, sufferliiK reaction from the high spirits engendered by hls cross-channel oxploits, hla success ful getaway, and tho unusual circum stances nttendant upon his return to this memory-haunted mausoleum of an unhappy childhood. Ho even shivered a trifle, as if under premonition of mis fortune. With one last look round to mako certain there was nothing In his room's calculated disorder to Incrlmi nato him wcro It to bo searched In his nbsence, Lanyard cnvoloped himself In a long, full-skirted coat, clapped on an opera hat, and went out, noisily locking tho door. He might as well havo loft It wldo; but It would do no harm to pretend ho didn't know tho bedchamber keys at Troyon'a were In terchangeable Identically tho sanio koys, In fact, that had been In servlco In tho tlmo of Marcel tho wretched. A slnglo half-power electric bulb now modified tho gloom of tho hall way; Its fellow mado a light blot 011 tho darkness of tho courtyard. Even tho windows or the conclergerlo wcio black. None tho less Lanyard tapped thorn smartly. "Cordon!" ho demanded in a stri dent voice "Cordon, s'll vous plait!" "Eh?" A startled grunt from within tho Iodgo was baroly audible. Then tho latch clicked loudly at tho end of tho passageway. Groping his way In tho direction of this last sound. Lanyard found tho small sldo door ajar. Ho opened It and hesitated a moment, looking out as though questioning the weather; simultaneously his deft lingers wedged tho latch back with a thin slip of steel. It had, In fact not been raining within an hour, but still tho sky was denso with a low, sullen wrack of cloud, and still tho sidewalks wcro Inky-wet. Tho street wus lonely and Indiffer ently lighted, but a swift, searching rcconnolssanco discovered no spy skulking In tho sheltor or any or tho nearer shadows. m Stopping out, ho slammed the door and strode briskly round tho corner, us ir making for tho cub rank that lines up along the Luxembourg gar dens of tJu nujj.iift.JileilLclij.hJi boot- n i Heels "madecIfoorfurTacRet'rn that quiet hour; ho was qulto audibly go ing away rrom Troyon'a. Dut Instead of holding on to tho cab rank, ho turned tho next corner, and then the next, rounding tho block; ami presently, rcapproachlng tho en tranco to Troyon's, paused In tho re cess or a dark doorway and, lifting ono foot nttcr another, slipped rub ber pads over Ills heels. Thereafter hla progress was practically noiseless. Tho smaller door yielded to his touch without a murmur Inside, ho closed It gently and stood n moment listening with nil his senses not with his cars alone, hut with every nervo and flbor of his being with Imagina tion to hoot. Dut thcro wns not a sound or movement In all tho liouso that he could detect. And no aliadnw could Imvo mado Iohh mine than he, slipping cat-footed across tlie courtyard mid up the stnlrs, aoldiiig with aiipordi'vclopeil sensi tiveness every lift thai might havo complained beneath his tread.

Still he wanted. Surely Roddy wouldn't bo able much longer to en duro such suspense. And, surely enough, tho sllcnco was abruptly broken by n strange and moving sound, a hushed cry of alarm that was half a moan and half a sob. Lanyard himself was startled, for that was novcr Roddy's volco! Thcro wns a nolso of muffled and confused footsteps, ns though some one had started In panic for tho door, then stopped In terror. Words followed tho strangest he I could havo Imagined words spoken 1 In a gentle and tremulous voice: "In pity's name! who aro you and what do you want?" ' Thunderstruck, Lanyard switched on the llghto. At a distance of some six paces he saw not lioddy but a woman, and not a woman morcly. but tho girl he hnd met In the restaurant. CHAPTER V. Anticlimax. Tho surprise was complete; hut It's a question which party thereto was tho moro affected. Lanyard stared with tho eyes of stu pefaction, his Jaw slack. To his fancy, this thing passed the compass of Elmplo Incredulity It wnsn't merely Improbable, It was preposterous; It was anticlimax exaggerated to the pro portion of tho grotesque. Ho had como prepared to surprise and bullyrag tho most astute pollco detective of whom ho had any knowl edge; ho found himself surprised and discountenanced by this! Confusion no less Intense Informed tho girl's expression; her eyes wcro fixed to his with a look of blank In quiry; her face, whoso coloring had won his admiration two hours since, was now colorless; her lips wcro Just ajar; tho fingers of ono hand touched her cheek, Indenting It. The other hand caught up beforo her the long skirts of a pretty robo de chambre, beneath whoso edge was visible a hand's breadth of shimmer ing white silk, with the toe of a silken mulo to match tho dressing gown. Thus she stood, poised for flight, at tired only In a negligee over what, one couldn't help suspecting, was her nightdress her hair was down, she was unquestionably all ready for her bed. Rut Rourko's long and patient train ing had been wasted If this man proved one to remain long at loss. 'v; il lug his wits quickly, ho mado a br.no show of accepting thip aniazin? aciidont as a commonplace. ' I 'eg vour pardon, Miss "nm--,-' 1th a formal in 'teriupted with a gn nsnltlou.

Simultaneously her face and thi it flamed scarlet with tho color that flooi: d them. "Your room, Mr Lanyard!" Her tone was bo convincing in Its modulation of shame and horror that lils heart nilsgavo him Not that alone, but the girl was very good to look upon. "I'm sure." ho began soothingly, "it doesn't matter. You mistook one door for the" "Rut you don't understand!" She shuddered. "This dreadful habit! And I ns hoping I had outgrown It! How can I explain?" "Relievo rne. Miss Dannon, you need explain tiling." "Rut I must. I wish to. I couldn't bear to havo you think Rut surely you can mako allowances for sleep walking!" To this appeal he could at first re turn nothing moro Intelligent than a dazed repetition of tho term. So that was how Why hadn't ho thought of It before? Elver alaco ho had turned on tho lights ho had been subjectively busy trying to Invest her presenco thero with somo plausiblo excuse. Rut somnambulism had never once entered his mind. And In his stupidity, at pains though ho had bcea to render his words Inoffenstro In themselves, ho had been guilty of con Ftruct'"o. Incivility. In his turn Lanyard colored warmly. "I beg your pardon," ho muttered. Tho girl paid no attention; sho was thinking only ot herself and tho anomalous position Into which her in firmity had tricked her. When sho did apeak hor words ran swiftly You sco 1 was so frightened!

' You aro very good," she mur mured, moving toward the door. "I am very fortunate." Her glance of surprise was question enough. "To be able to treasure this much of your confidence," he responded with n tentative smile. She was near the door; he opened tt for her. hut cautioned her with a gesture and a whispered word: "Walt. I'll make sure nobody's about." He stepped noiselessly Into the hall and paused an Instant, looking keenly right and left listening. Tho girl advanced to the threshold nnd there halted, hesitant, eying htm auxiously. Ho nodded reassurance: "All rig' l coast's clear!" But sho delayed one moment more. "It's you who aro mistaken." sho whispered, flushing again beneath his regard, from which admiration could not be absent. "It Is I who am for tunate to havo met a gentleman." Her diffident smile, together with tho candor of her eyes, embanassed him In such degrco that for tho mo ment ho wns unablo to frame a reply. "Good night,'' sho whispered and thank you, thank you!" Her room was at tho far end of tho corridor. Sho gained Its threshold in ono swift dash, noiseless save for the silken whisper of her garments, turned, flashed him a final look that left him with the thought that novel ists did not always exaggerate that eyes could slilno llko star?.
