CHAPTER IX. (Continued).
A Amber left the room Labertouch
Itxtlng-ulshed the lamp, Bhut and
ocked the door, and followed, catch
ing Amber by the arm and guiding
lilm through pitch darkneBs to the
head of the Btairs. "Don't talk," he
Vhlspered; "trust me." They de

lie obeyed blindly, stumbling down
reeking corridor, and In a minute
tnore, to his unutterable relief, was
Sn tho open air of the bazar.
RUnkinK with the abrupt transition
from absolute night to garish light,

(doorway, waiting. Beneath his gaze

himself absorbed in the family of Eu
rasians who were shrilly squabbling
with the keeper of vegetable stall ad
jacent. But presently he wearied of
their nolaev yawned, thrust both hands
deep In his pockets and stumbled
away. The bazar accepted him as a
fcrother, unquestioning, and he picked
his way through It with an ease that
rgued nothing but absolute familiar
ity with Ills surroundings. But always
you may be sure, he had the gleam of
llrik satin In the corner of his eye.
In time broad Machua bazar street
received them Pink Satin and the
aallormaa out for a night of It. And
toow Pink Satin began to stroll more
edately, manifesting a livelier Inter
est In the eights of the wayside. Am
ber's Impatience for he guessed that
they neared the goldsmith's stall In
Without warning. Pink Satin pulled
bp, extracted from the recesses of his
teostume a long, black and vlndlctlvo
looklng native cigar, and lighted it,
thoughtfully exhaling the smoke
through his nose while he stared cov
etously at the display of a slipper
knerchant whose stiind was over
across from the stall of a goldsmith.
With true oriental deliberation Pink
atln finally made up his mind to
move on; and Amber lurched heavily
Snto tho premises occupied by on6
thola Bakeh, a goldsmith.
A Customer, a slim, handsome Ma
layan youth, for the moment held the
(attention of the proprietor. The two
Vere boggling with characteristic en
joyment over a transaction which
feeemed to involve less than twenty
Rupees. Amber waited, knowing that
tiatlenee must be his portion until the
targaln should be struck. Dhola
IJaksh himself, a lean, sharp-featured
Ifciahratta gray with age, appraised
rith a single look the new customer,

Unexpectedly tha proprietor made
a substantial concession. Money

Dhola Palish shrugged. His eyet
shifted from Amber to tha encircling
faces of the bystanders. "I am a poor
man," he whined. "How should I have
money to lend? Coma to me on tha
morrow; then mayhap I may have a
few rupees. Tonight I have neither
cash nor tlma."
The hint was lost upon Ambar. "A
stone of price " ha persisted.
With a disturbed and apprehenslva
look, the money-lender rose. "Come,
then," he grumbled. "If you must M
A voice cried out behind Amber
"Ileh!" mora a squeal than a cry.
Intuitively, as at a signal of danger,
he leaped aslda. Simultaneously
something like a beam of light sped
past his head. The goldsmith uttered
one dreadful, choking scream, and
went to his knees. For as many as
three seconds ha twayed' back and
forth, his features terribly contorted,
his thin old hands plucking at the
handle of a broadbladcd dagger which
had transfixed his throat. Then ha
tumbled forward on his face, kicking.
There followed a single Instant of
suspense and horror, then a mad rush
of feet as the street stampeded Into
the shop. Voices clamored to the
skies. Somehow the lights went out.
Amber started to fight his wy out
As he struggled on, making little
headway through the press, a hand
grasped his arm and drew him an
"Make hnsto, hazoorl" cried tha
owner of the hand, in Hindustani.
"Make haste, lest they seek to fasten
this crime upon your head."
Both hand and voice might well
have been Labertouche's; Amber be
lieved they were. And the darkness
rendered visual identification impossi
ble. No shadow of doubt troubled
him as he yielded to the urgent hand,
and permitted himself to be dragged,
more than led, through the reeking,
milling mob, whose numbers seemed
each Instant augmented. He had
thought, dully, to find It a difficult
matter to worm through and escape,
but somehow his guide seemed to
have little trouble.
Ever since that knife had flown
past his cheek, his instinct of self
preservation had been dominated by a
serene confidence that Pink Satin was
at hand to steer him in safety away
from the brawl. Ha thanked his stars
for Lnbertouche for the hand that
clasped his arm and the voice that
Bpoke guardedly in his ear.
And then, by the light of tha street,
he discovered that his gratitude had
been premature and misplaced. His
guide had fallen a pace behind and
was shouldering him along with al
most frantic energy; but a glance
aside showed Amber, In Labertouche's
stead, a chunky little Gurkha In the
fatigue uniform of his regiment of the
British army of India. Pink Satin
was nowhere in sight, and It was Im
mediately apparent that an attempt
to find him among the teeming hun
dreds before tho goldsmith's stall
would be as futile as foolish If not
fatal. Yet Amber's Impulse was to
wait, and he faltered something
which Beemed to exasperate the
gurkba, who fairly danced with ex
citement and Impatience.
"Hasten, hazoor!" he cried. "Is this
a time to loiter? Hasten era they
charge you with this spilling of blood.
The gods lend wlng3 to our feet this
"But who are you?" demanded Am
ber. "What matter Is that? Is It not
enough that I am here and well dis
posed toward you, that I risk my skin
to Bave yours?" He cannoned sudden
ly against Amber, shunting blin un
ceremoniously out of the bazar road
and Into a narrow black alley.
Simultaneously Amber heard a cry
go up, shrill above tha clamor of the
mob, Bcreaming that a white sailor
bad knifed tha goldpmlth. And he
turned pale beneath his tan.
"lou hear, hazoor? They are nam
ing you to the pollce-wallabs. Come!"
"You're right." Amber fell Into a
long, free stride that threatened quick
ly to distance the gurkha'a short,
sturdy legs. "Yet why do you take
this trouble for me?"
"Why ask?" panted" the gurkha.
"Did I not stand bt-blnd you and see
that you did not throw tho knife? Am
I a dog to stand by and Bee an Inno
cent man yoked to a crime?" He
laughed shortly. "Am a fool to for
get how Rreat Is the generosity of
kings? This way, hazoor!"
"Why call me king?" Amber
hurdled a heap of offal and picked up
his pace again. "Yet you will find ma
generous, though but a Bahlb."
"Tho sahibs are very generous."
Again tbo gurkha laughed briefly and
unpleasantly. "But this Is no tlma for

Willingly Amber dropped Into a
wavarlrg stride, no nearly exhausted

ha reeled drunkenly; and, fighting for
breath, they atumbled on, side by side,
In tha shadow of the ovrhar,tng

the gurkha halted Amber with an ltn

breathed, with an expressive sweep
of his hand toward tha cross street.
"Let u wait hera till they pass." And
In evident panto ba crowded Amber
Into tha deep and gloomy recess af

remonstrating. Why should the police

They went down together, the
gurkha on top. And the door crashed

ber on his back. In total darkness, be

Amber went temporarily mad with
rage. He waa no stranger to fear
no man with an Imagination Is; but
for the time being he was utterly fool
hardy. He forgot his exhaustion, for
got the hopelessness of hla plight, for
got everything save his Insatiable
thirst for vengeance. He was, in our
homely Idiom, flghtlng-mad.

to his feet. There was the automatlo
pistol In his coat pocket, but, h, con
scious that many hands were reaching
out in the darkness to drag him down
again, found no time to draw It He
seemed to feel the presence of the
nearest antagonist, whom ho could by
no means see; for he struck out with
both bare, clenched fists, one after
the other, with his weight behind
each, and both blows landed. The
room rang with the Kounds of the
struggle, the shuffle, thud, and scrape
of feet both b(xted and bare, tl.e
hoarse, hnrsh breathing of the com
batants, their groins, their whispers,
their low, tense cries.
And abruptly It was over. Ho was
borne down by sheer weight of num
bers. Though he fought with the
Insanity of despair they were too
many for him. He went a second
time to the floor, beneath a dozen half
nude bodies. Below him lay another,
with an arm encircling his throat, the
elbow beneath bis chin compressing
his windpipe. Powerless to move
hand or foot, he gave up . . . and
wondered dully why it was that a
knife had not been slipped between
his rlt between tho fifth and sixth

Craduully It was forced upon him
that his captors meant him no bodily
harm, for the present at least. Ills
wrath suicided and gave place to cu
riosity while he rested, regaining his
wind, and the natives squirmed away
from him, leaving one nun kneeling
upon his chest and four others each
pinioning a limb.
There followed a wait, while soma

But be had spoken In English, and
his bearers gathered the Import of his
words only from bis tone, apparently.
He who bad addressed blra laughed

his only answer. But for all his de

Unexpectedly he was lot down npoa
the floor and released. Bare feet scur
ried away In tha darkness and a door
closed with a resounding bang. Ha
was alone, for all ho could say to the
contrary alone and unharmed. Ha
was more: ha was astonished; he had
not been disarmed.
A flood of lamplight leaped through
some opening behind him and showed
him his shadow, long and gigantic
upon the floor of earth and a wall of
stone. He wheeled about, alert as a
cat; and the sight of his pistol hung
steady between the eyes of one who
stood at ease, with folded arms, In
an open doorwsy. Over his shoulder
was visible the bare brown poll of an
attendant whose lank brown arm held
aloft the lamp.
One does not shoot down In cold
blood a man who makes no aggressive
move, and he who stood In the door
way endured Impassively the mute
threat of the pistol. Above Its sight
his eyes met Amber's with a level and
unwavering glance, shining out of a
Specimens of Every Tribe,
dark, set fnce cast In a mold of In
solence and pride. A bushy black
beard was parted at his chin and
brushed etillly back. Between his thin
hard lips, parted in a shadowy smile,
his teeth gleruned white. SUndlng a
head taller than Amber and very
gracefully erect in clothing of a seml
mlUtary cut and of regal magnificence,
every inch of his pose bespoke power,
position, and the habit of authority.
At once Impressed and irritated by
his attitude. Amber lowered his
weapon. "Well?" ho demanded queru
lously. "What do you want? What's
your part in this Infamous outrage?"
On the other's face the faint smlla
became more definite. Ho nodded non
chalantly at Amber's pistol. "My
lord Intends to hoot?" he enquired
in English, his tone courteous and
"That's as may be," retorted Am
her defiantly. "I'm going to have satr

Tha man lifted his eyebrows and

Bowing osoquloutly, tho servant en

upon a wooden shelf braced against
one aide of the foursquare, stone,
walled dungeon. As he went out ha
closed tho door, and Amber noted that
It was a heavy sheet of Iron or steel,
very substantial. His fac darkened.
"I presume you know what that
means," he said, with a significant
Jerk of his head toward tha door, "it'll

Sonorous and not unpleaslng, his
voice trembled with Intense and un
questionable earnestness; and when
It censed he remained motionless In
his attitude of humility. Amber,
hardly able to credit his hearing,
stared down at tho man stupidly, his
brad awhlrl with curiously commin
gled sensations of amazement and en

rising and retreating to the further

"Now see here," began Amber, de
signedly continuing his half of the
conversation In English for too much
misunderstanding bad already been
brought about by his too-ready fa
miliarity with Urdu. He paused a lit
tle to collect his thoughts, then re
sumed: "Now sea here, you're Sallg

THE TEA PENALTY.
A Strong Man's Experience.
Writing from a busy railroad town

great roads guys:

to affect bis nerves to such an extent
that he could not sleep at night, and
he would go to his work in the morn

suaded him, Fome four months ago, to

"At first ho used Postum only for
