The next moment he grew serious to

"I only warn the signore that if he at

"Then let it be so." I laughed, feel- la

London too well. He was silent and is
shook his head; then, after telling me is
t that he was still at the same restau
rant in Westbourne Grove. he took his w
departure, warning me once more not w
a to go forth. g
Half an hour later, disregarding his Ic
words, I strode out into the Strand. o0
and again walked round to the "Jun* bi
r for." The short, wintry day had ended. al
t the gas lamps were lit and the dark- hl
ness of night was gradually creeping t
on. It
r Jack had not been to the club, and I a
e began now to grow thoroughly uneasy. el
t He had parted from me at the corner i1
e of the Strand with only a five minutes'
e walk before him, and yet he had ap- o
r, parently disappeared. My first impulse sa
n was to drive to Notting Hill to inquire w
d of Muriel if she had news of him, but
somehow the Italian's warning words a
made me wonder if he had met with si
n foul play.
I suddenly recollected those two f
men who had passed by as we had
le talked, and how that the features of
'yone had seemed strangely familiar.
* Therefore I took a cab to the police
in station down at Whitehall and made
inquiry of the inspector on duty in
the big, bare office with its flaring
e. gas jets in wire globes. He heard me
to the end, then turning back the book
of "occurrences" before him, glanced
' through the ruled entries.
n "I should think this is the gentle
f man, sir," he said. And he read to
me the entry as follows:
Ie P. C. 462A reports that at 2:07 a. m.,
i. while on duty outsi" ' the National Gal
lery, he heard a revolver shot. followed
by a man's cry. He ran to the corner of
y Suffolk street, where he found a gentle
:O man lying upon the pavement suffering
from a serious shot-wound in the chest
is and quite unconscious. He obtained the
assistance of P. C.'s 21SA and 343A. and
the gentleman, who was not identified.

I waited for no more, but rushed
oround to the hospital in the cab, and
was, five minutes later, taken along
e the ward, where I identified poor Jack
lying in bed, white-faced and uncon
"The doctor was here a quarter of
id an hour ago," whispered the sister.
"And he fears he is sinking."
"He has uttered no words?" I asked
anxiously. "Made no statement?"
"None. He has never regained con
e selousness. and I fear, sir, he never I
will. It is a case of deliberate murder,
to the police told me early this morning." I
? I clenched my fists and swore a
at fierce revenge for that dastardly act.
And as I stood beside the narrow bed,
I realized that what Olinto had said
regarding my own peril was the actual
truth. I was a marked man. Was I

and-ever-increasing mystery?

re Throughont the long night I called 1
4 many times at the hospital, but the
reply was always the same. Jack had
ng not regained conslcunases, and the
re doctor regarded his case as hopelessa.
In the morning I drove in hot haste

a One afternoon, shortly before Christ
mas, as we were idling in the Ameri

me that Muriel had invited us to tea
1e at her cousin's that afternoon, and ac
in cordingly we went there in company.
As we sat together Muriel. a smart
figure in pale blue gown, poured tea
for us and chatted more merrily, I
;e thought, than ever before. She seemed
1e quick and nervous and yet full of hap
piness, as she should indeed have
w been, for Jack Durnford was one atof
the best fellows in the world, and his
restoration to health little short of

"Gordon," he said to me with a
sudden seriousness when tea had end

thing I've been longing always to tell
you, and now I have got dear Muriel's
consent. I want to tell you about her
father and his friends."

as "No, not everything, for I don't

leave you to form your own conclu

'ir -most amazing story. When I myself
ht became first cognizant of the mystery
I was on board the flagship the Re
nown, under Admiral Sir John Fisher.
We were lying in Malta when there
arrived the English yacht Iris, owned
by Mr. Philip Leitheourt, and among
id those on board cruising for pleasure
by were Mr. Martin Woodroffe, Mr. Hyl
ton Chater, and the owner's wife and
daughter Muriel.
"Muriel and I met first at a tennis
party, and afterwards frequently at
various houses in Malta. for anyone
who goes there and entertains is soon
entertained in return. A mutual at
tachment sprang up between Muriel
and myself," he said, placing his hand
tenderly upon her and smiling, "and
we often met in secret and took long
walks, until quite suddenly Lelthcourt
said that it was necessary to sail for
Smyrna to pick up some friends who
had been traveling in Palestine. The
night they sailed a great consterna
tion was caused on the island by the
news that the safe in the admiral sup
erintendent's office had been opened
by expert safe-breakers, and certain
most important secret documents
"Well?" I asked, much interested.
"Again, two months later, when the
villa of the prince of Montevachl, at
Palmero, was broken into and the
whole of the famous Jewels of the
princess-stolen, it was a very strange
fact that the Iris was at the moment
in that port. But It was not until the
third occasion, when the yacht wasi
at Villefranche, and our squadron be
\ ing at Toulon I got four days' leave
to go along the Riviera, that my sues
pltons were aroused, for at the very
hour when I was dining at the Iondon
la house at Nice with Muriel and a
schoolfellow of hers. Elma Heath -
who was spending the winter there
ck- with a lady who was Baron Oberg's
of cousin-that a great robbery was
out committed in one of the big hotels up
red at Clmies, .the wife of an American
ew millionaire losing jewels valued at
thirty thousand pounds. Then the
rou robberies, coincident with the visit of
the yacht, aroused my strong suspi
't cion. I remarked the nature of those
documents stolen from Malta, and
!" recognized that they could only be of
service to a foreignt government. Tben
n't came the Leghorn incident of which
I'm yoa told me. The yacht's name had
been changed to the Lol, and she
ked had been repainted. I made searecb

old ship at the consulate, a Russian gan

scheme certainly was to transfer any
