Only threo loaded cartridges ro

found no extfa ones In any of his
pockets, ho knew ho must make tho

the serpent's flesh. It did not Injuro
tho spine. Quickly tho upraised part
of tho-body Bank upon tho coll, but It
reared Itself again In an Instant, and
tho furious darting of tho tongue re
vealed thnt tho reptile was moro en
raged than over.
"Want to tnko a crack at It, doo?"
nnked tho detective, .handing tho
Weapon to tho physician.
Pitch had no poor Idoa of himself
as n fancy Bhot, but ho found his
mnsculnr control too Badly shaken by
tils narrow escape from tho cobra to
shdot straight". His shot tho fourth
was a wider miss than any of tho do
tectlvo's had been. Ho handod tho
pistol back to o Headquartcr's man
and shook his iiead.
"You're fiio man to stay on tho fir
ing lino," he said.
Brltz eyed tho revolver grimly. In
Its blue-stcol chamber wore four
' empty cartrldgds and only ono that
held tho potentiality of rcleaso frclm
their dangerously uncorfaln refuge on
tho chiffonier. Crooking his loft arm,
. ho used tho angle mado by his olbbw
as a rest and leveled tho long ibllie
barrel of tho blg-callbered weapon
eteadlly., -Pausing ,imtll' tho swsfylpg
of tho scrp'bnt dlrnlnlshed as much as
It apparontly was going to do, ho
fired.
A writhing, twisting snarl was tho
result. The cobra colled and uncoiled
with electric rapidity, traveling In cir
cles all over tho spaco betvcen tho
chiffonier and tho tablo whonco Brits:
had lassoed tho pistol. Plainly tho
rCiidlo was hit mortally wounded, ho
thought, but a3 ho started to descend
Impatiently, Fitch seized him and lit
erally flung him back on tho chiffon
ier's smooth top.
"Not yot," said tho doctor, norvous
' Iy. "Lct'o wait a mlnutp."
, It was profltablo patience. For aftor
probnbly-a mlntits of terrlblo'struggle,
tho cobra returned to Its ,coll and
ojlfcovmore rfciTrccl Its hcad'.,'"Tho gray
body throbbed flprcolyj hut closer
scrutiny., (showed tho man tho snako
had mot been hit with fatal result.
' Suddenly tho physician oelzed Ilrltz'
arm In a nervoui grasp.
"By Jupiter! ' ho . exclaimed.
"You've shot ou: Us ton&uo!"
True enough,,, Tho fifth ballot lad
mpassed : betwepu . tuo gaping Javb of
the reptile and taken pit tho" greater
"fcarl of tint darting scarlet thread
as neatly as a sharp Instrument could
snuff a candlo. Whllo tho wound
"doubtless caused agony to tho snake,
It did not losscn Its anger. The pol-eon-charged
fangs romalned In Its
mouth, and tho cutting oft of Its
tongue swelled Its fury to tho ultlmato
degree.
Brltz dropped the pistol on tho chif
fonier and thrust both hands In his
pockets.
"Up a treo for fair," ho said. "Noth
ing more doing In tho artillery line."
"That was your lart cartridge?"
I Brltz bent his head affirmatively.
lAri expression of slow wrath gatherod
force In the Headquarters man's face,
v as ho stared at tho swaying serpent
'" such a short distance below. Ono
could sco be was angry enough tp
'take tho desperato chanco of spring
ing from his porch and trying to
ctrlko the cobra with his heels, or,
falling thnt, seizing It by the neck,
seeking to throttlo It. Tho Instinct of
self-preservation, however, waa
stronger than rage. Brltz was willing
enough to risk his llfo In tho fulfill
ing, of his duty, so long as tho risk
'meant a fighting chanco to hlra. Ho
was too,Bonslblo absolutely to throw
'his llfo away, and something told him
that In splto of all tho courage In ttiq
world, no man would havo on appreci

hattlo at clopo quarters with bo ven

out of that houeo. Ho felt he was tho

Brltz grinned, shook tho empty

full cartrldgo Into ono of tho cham

tho barrel. Then, once moro using
his arm as a rest, ho took Careful aim,
and was about to pull tho trlggor,
when tho door was flung open and tho
uniformed policeman stood on tho
threshold.
"Well," said tho bluecoat, "excuso

Fitch checked him with an upraised

CHAPTER XXlU.
Mrs. Mlaaloner's Visitor.
Mrs. Mlsslonor, nftor tho ball, took!
In tho fag-end of a bridge party, and
Btnycd so lato that when sho returned
to her home the crffct was etrlpcd with
dawn, and the maid vho had waited"
up for her was slooplng soundly in a '
chair. Tho widow wn3 not yot dis
posed for slumber. It had been an1
excltlug night. t Her fancy had bcon
stimulated so greatly by her brief!
talk with tho 9waml In tho ballroom
tl at sho was unablo to turn It tram
tho mysterious Oriental history of
tho Maharanoo diamond. Sho know,
no moro of tho Kwol's past than sho
had related to 'tho sago, for hor hus
band had not acquainted her 'with all
tho details connected with his Acquisi
tion or it. something in the Swaml's,
manner caused htir to regard tho etone
with mbro or less avoralqri.' 8ho bb-1
gan to doubt tho purity of Its record.
Fond though iho was of gems, oven
to tho point of being a Jowol worship
er, sho was American to her finger
tip., and would BhrlnU In terror from
nny baublo that came to her stained
with tho tiniest drop of human blood.
SI16 had loved hor husband In a
way; at any rate, abo had always ro
Bpooted and admired him. It seemed
Impossible he would bo a party to
wrongdoing Yet bho could not shake
off a sensation of dread whenever Bho
remembered how Intimately tho Jowol
had nestled In tho onows of her throat,
nnd rivaled the brightness of her eyes.
Could It bo aho had wofa a gem Whoso

woman's loveliness?
Drawing about hor shoulders a soft,
warm shawl, sho took a sent at a vltv
dow In her boudoir and sat gazing Into
a sky pink nnd gray with daybreak,
trying to solve her real feeling In
regard to tho recovery ot tho Mnharn
nno diamond. Bho waa In tho midst
of her meditation when sho heard tho
faint ringing ot n bell at tho other end
of Iter big hduso. In A Httlo while,
a footman rapped on tho door of hor
boudoir. It awakehed her maid, nnd
tho girl, hor eyes swollen With sleep,
approached tho widow with a card
bearing no name, but Inscribed with
tho meesngo:
"It Is Important that ! bo permitted
to sco you at onco."
At such an hour? Mrs. Mlssloner
was astonished b? tho request. Who
could hor early visitor bo? Suroly no
ono In her own clrclo of acquaintances
would venture upon such a liberty. If
It were n question of llfo or death,
thoro was still tho telephone Secro
ry was lndlcnted by tho attempt of
tho person to sco hor faco to face.
Hasto breathed In every word of tho
ncholarly scrawl. Mrs. Mlsslonor was
not ultraconventlonal, but tho request
for on Interview nt that tlmo of day
an hour thnt almost might ho called
a tlmo of night was boyond tho scopo
of even her llbc-al views. However,
curiosity conquered, ns It has been do
ing In tho cnoes of women, Jowela, nnd
apples since tho world bngnn. nnd sho
Informed her mnld sho would seo tho
visitor in tho library.
Sho controlled her eagerness for
understanding of tho request, never
theless, ro well lmt wrm In a leisure
ly way sho renrhod tho big room on
tho main floor, tho visitor was already
within It. Ho stood ot a window look
ing Into a street and shielding him
colt behind a curtain from chanco
glanres. As his head was bare, It waa
not urltll tho second glnnro that eho
recognized tho Swaml. Sho was not
only nRtonlshod. but stnrtlcd by tho
recognition. What could thin mysteri
ous studont of the occult want with
her? What could possibly bo tho ob
ject of his vl6lt to her home at such
an hour? Ho vas an old acquaint-'
nnco In a sense, hut ono Mro, Mis
slon;r had not cultivated in this part
of tho world.
Ho waited until sho wan closo to
tho hearthrug beforo ho turned, and
said with a profound bow:
"Madam, my Intrusion Is excueed
by tho fact that I can restore' your
Jowels."
"Is It pasalblo!" sho exclaimed.
"It Is moro than possible. It Is a
fact accomplished," bo answered.
Taking from an Inner pocket n pack
ago In ollk tlssuo, ho oxtonded It
toward her with tho words:
"You will find In this parcel, madam,
all tho diamonds of our necklace,
with tho exebptton of tho largest
tho Maharaneo."
"But tho blR diamond ot tho wholo
nccklaco tho Maharaneo!" cried Mrs.
Mlssloner. "How did you find theso
nnd not find thnt?"
"I hnvo not said that I did not re
covor It," said tho flwaml. "On tho
cohtrary, I confess to you that I
gained possession of tho Maharanoo
nt tho tlmo when I not these! hut It
Inust not, cannot, bo restored to you."
"I am gratoful for what you havo
dono," tho widow said gently; "but' I
nm unable to understand your ottl
tudo In regard to tho missing stone.
Why should I not havo that, too? It
Is mlno."
"Madam," said tho Orlontal, In tho
courtliest way, "I would not for tho
world say anything to disturb your
faith In your huRband. Thoro Is no
need ot doing bo. Your faith Is war
ranted. Mr. Mlssloner, when ho said
that, thought ho was tolling tho truth.
Unfortunately for you. as well as for
many others, ho wan not speaking tho
truth. Tho rencgado who sold that
Jowol to your husband did not buy It
from a Maharaneo. Ho did not buy it
from anyone He stolo It!"
"Stolo It!" tho widow cried, with a
Httlo wall In her volco. "Imposslblo!"
"Pardon mo onco more, madnm. It
Is so far from bolns Imposslblo that
It Is tho strict truth. Nor waB tho
theft tho only crlmo of which tho man
was guilty. In ateallng that Jowol, ho
committed a dreadful sacrilege."
Mrs, Mlssloner waa so overcome by
hor emotions thnt Bho wn3 obliged, In
Bplto of hor Intention, to sit down,
nnd therefore to cxtond to hor visitor
nn Invitation to bo scat'ed also, beforo
Bho could get herself well enough In
hand to follow tho Swaml's narrative
calmly.
"Thnt diamond," continued tho sago,
"onco blazed In tbo forehead of tho
great Buddha. In the Temple ot Dolhl.
It waa rovercd by thouaanda, hundreds
of thousands, by millions, as the most
sacrOd work of tho god; for radltlon
saya It was tho undisputed property
of B.uddha hlrasolf when ho walkod
tho earth In his latest Incarnation."
Mrs. Mtsslonor's lips wcro parted.
Hor eyos woro fixod ijjion tho Orien
tal's In tho Intensity of her intoreot.
"One night," tho Bngo wont on,
"when a band of militant prloat3 ns
signed to guard tho nhrlno of Buddha
In tho great Dolhl teraplo relaxed Its
vigilance, a sacrilegious wretch o,n
whoao head jbo nil tho eurao3 of all

Mrs. Mlssloner whs thrilled by tho
narrative She was fomewhnt nt a
loan, howover, to a-rotint for the depth
of tho Swarril's In'ercst In tho recap
turo 6f tho'gT6at dlnmond. (Tntll ho
unfolded hlb'atOry fnrt'ter, ho did not
know how pergonal that intorost was.
"How ddfts this affert you?" sho
asked. "Why should you be nt such

And to return those other stones to

"You wl.Il need no further explana

Tho Swaml pau-i-d an Instant, and
then continued:
"So you seo that not only do a hun

whenco It was stolen, hut that tho

Mrs. Mlssloner did not wondor. Sio
clasped between her handa tho pnoftet
containing tjio oiler stonon of Msr
nccklnco, and gazoti dreamily Into tho
11 ro.
"What Is It, then, you wish?" sho
naked. "Whnt"can I do for you? Id

'Not In thnt sertro," said tho Swaml
quickly. "I want.no recompense for

would bo ns wicked for mo to keep

"How can T do that?" Inquired tbo
widow.
"Tho matter Is now In tho hands ot

"I will consider It."
"I trust your consideration will not

rising. "If you como to a decision

Mrs. Mlssloner Btnrtcd,
