WATERBTJRY EVENING DEMOCRAT, WEDNESDAY, APRIL L5. 1903.
' i By ROBERT o louis W m M IvF ft STEVENSON C 0 ! SVie SUICIDE CLVB IPa-rt III The d)en1ure of Ibe Han som Cabs TETTTENANT BRACKEN- D BURY RICH had greatly I distinguished himself in wars. He it was who took the chieftain ' prisoner with his own hand. His gallantry was universally applauded, and when he came home prostrated by an ugly saber cut and a protracted Jun gle fever society was prepared to wel come the lieutenant as a celebrity of minor luster. But his was a character remarkable for unaffected modesty. Ad venture was dear to his heart, but he cared little for adulation, and he wait ed at foreign watering places and in Aiders until the fame f his exploits had run through its nine days' vitality and begun to be forgotten. He arrived in Loudon at last, in the early season, with as little observation as he could desire, and as he was" an orphan arid had none but distant relatives who lived in the provinces it was almost as a' foreigner that he installed him self in the capital of the country for Which he had shed his blood. On the day following his arrival he dined , alone at a military club. He shook hands with a. few old comrades and received their warm congratula tions,' but as one and all had some en gagement for the" evening he found himself left entirely to his own re sources. He was in dress, for he had entertained the notion of visiting a theater. But the great city was new to him. He had gone from a provin cial school to a military college and thence direct to the eastern empire, and he promised himself a variety of delights in this world for exploration. Swinging his cane, he took his way westward. It was a mild evening, al ready dark, and now and then threat ened rain. The succession of faces in the lamplight stirred the lieutenant's Imagination, and it seemed to him as if he could walk forever in that stim ulating city atmosphere and surround ed by the mystery of 4,000,000 private lives. He glanced at the: houses and iMf U . A! MM ' ' 1 " JsSks' k 7' "THE CABMAN HAS BEEN PAID," OBSERVED THE SERVANT. marveled wnac was passing behind those warmly" lighted windows. He looked into face after face and saw them each intent upon some unknown Interest, criminal or kindly. "They talk of war," he thought, "but this is the great battlefield of. man kind." And then he began to wonder that he should walk so long In this compli cated scene and not chance upon so much as the shadow of an adventure for himself. ' "All in good time," he reflected. "I am still a stranger and perhaps wear a strange air. But I must be drawn Into the eddy before long." 4 The night was already well advanced . when a plump of cold rain fell sudden ly out of the darkness. Brackenbury paused under some trees, and as he did so, he caught sight of a. hansom cab man making him a sign that he was disengaged. The circumstance fell in so happily to the occasion that he at once raised his cane in answer and had soon ensconced himself in the London gondola. . IWhere tosir?" asked the driver.. . "Where you please," said uracicen bury. And Immediately, at a pace of sur prising swiftness, the hansom drove off through the rain into a maze of villas. One villa was, so like another, each with its front garden, and there was so little to distinguish the deserted lamp lit streets and crescents through which the flying hansom took its way that Brackenbury soon lost all. idea of di rection. He would have, been tempted to believe that the cabman was amus ing himself by driving him round and round and in and out about a small quarter, but there was something busi nesslike in the speed which convinced him of the contrary. The man had an object in view. He was hastening to ward a definite end. and Brackenbury was at once astonished at the fellow's skill in picking a way through such a labyrinth and a little concerned to im agine what was the occasion , of his hurry. He had heard tales of grangers faring ill in London. Did the drivei belong to some bloody and treacherous association, and was he himself being whirled to a murderous death? The thought had scarcely presented itself when the cab ." swung sharply round a corner and pulled up before the garden gate of a villa in a long and wide road. The house was brilliantly lighted up. Another hansom had just driven away, and Brackenbury could" see a gentleman beinc admitted at tht front . door and received ; by several liveried servants. He was surprised that the cabman should have stopped so immediately in front of a house where a reception was being held, but he did not doubt it was the result of accident, and sat placidly smoking where he was until he heard the trap thrown open over his head." "Herewe are, sir," said the driver. "Here!" repeated Brackenbury. "Where?" "You told me to take you where I pleased, sir," returned the man, with a Chuckle, "and here we are." 1 x It struck Brackenbury that the voice was wonderfully smooth and courteous for a man in so inferior a position. He remembered the speed at which he had been driven, and now it occurred to him that the hansom was more luxuri ously appointed than the common run of public conveyances. "I must ask you to explain," said he. "Do you mean to turn me out into the rain? My good man, I suspect the choice is mine." f ; "The choice Is certainly yours," re- plied the driver, 'out when I ten you all I believe I know how a gentleman of your figure will decide. There is a gentleman's party in this house. Ij do not . know whether the master be a stranger to London and without ac quaintances of his own or whether he Is a man of odd notions. But certainly I was hired to kidnap single gentlemen in evening dress, as many as I pleased, big military officers by preference. You have simply to go in and say that Mr. Morris invited you." "Are you Mr. Morris?" inquired the lieutenant. - "Oh, no," replied the cabman. "Mr. Morris is the Derson of the house." "it is not a common way or collecting guests," said , Brackenbury, "but an eccentric man might very well Indulge the whim without any Intention to offend. And suppose that I refuse Mr. Morris' invitation" he went on, "what then?" "My orders are to drive you back where I took you from," replied the man, "and set out to look for others up to midnight. Those who have no fancy for such an adventure, Mr. Morris said, jvere not the sniesfrs far htm." . These words decided the lieutenant on the spot , "After all," he reflected as he de scended from the hansom, "I have not had long to wait for my adventure." He had hardly found footing on the sidewalk and was still feeling in his pocket for the fare, when the cab swung about and drove off by the way it came at the former breakneck ve locity. Brackenbury shouted after the man, who .paid no heed and continued to drive away, but the sound of his voice was overheard in the house, the door was again thrown open, emitting a flood of light upon the garden, and a servant ran down to meet him, holding an umbrella. "The cabman has been paid," ob served the servant in a very civil tone, and he proceeded to escort Bracken bury along the path and up the steps. In the hall several other attendants re lieved him of his hat, cane and paletot, gave him a ticket with a number in return and politely hurried him up a stair adorned with tropical flowers to the door of an apartment on the first story. Here a grave butler inquired bis name and, announcing "Lieutenant Brackenbury Rich," ushered him into the drawing room of the house. . A young man, slender and singularly handsome,' came forward and greeted him with an air at once courtly and af f ectionate, Hundreds of candles of the finest wax lighted up a room that was perfumed, like the staircase, with a profusion of rare and beautiful flower ing shrubs. A side table was loaded with tempting viands. Several serv ants went to and fro with fruits and goblets of champagne. The company was perhaps sixteen in number, all men, few beyond the prime of life and, with hardly ant exception, of a dashing and capable exterior. They were di. vided into two groups, one about a rou lette board and the other surrounding a table at which one of their number held a bank of baccarat. , V , "I see," thought Brackenbury. "I am in a private gambling saloon, and the cabman was a tout." y His eye had embraced the details, and his mind formed the conclusion while his host was still holding him by the hand, and to him his looks re turned from this rapid survey. At 'a second view Mr. Morris surprised him still more than on the first. The. easy; elegarice of his manners, the distincr tIpn,aicriiabiHty and courage that ap peared' upon his features, fitted very ill with the lieutenant's preconceptions on the subject of the proprietor of a hell, and the tone, of his conversation seemed to mark him out for a man of position and merit. Brackenbury found be had an Instinctive liking for his en tertainer, and, though he chlded him self for the iweaknejs, he was unable to resist a sort of friendly attraction for Mr. Morris' person and character. 1 ' -VI have heard of you, Lieutenant Rich," said Mr, Morris, lowering his tone, "and believe me I am gratified to make your acquaintance. Ycur looks accord, with the reputation that has preceded you from India. And if you will forget for. awhile the irregularity of your presentation In my "house I shall feel it not only an honor, -but a genuine pleasure besides. A man who makes a mouthful" of barbarian cava Hers," he added, with a laugh, "should not be appalled by a breach of eti quette, however serious.' ' And he led him toward the sideboard and pressed him to partake of some re freshment. - "Upon my word," the lieutenant re flected, "this is one of the pleasantest fellows, and, I do not doubt, one of the most agreeable societies In London." wHefepartookJ of ; some champagne, which hejfouiid excellent, and, observ ing that many of the company were al ready smoking, he lighted one of his own Manillas, and strolled up to the roulette board, where he sometimes" made a stake and sometimes looked smilingly on the fortune of others. It was while he was thus idling that he became aware of a sharp scrutiny to which the whole of the guests were subjected. Mr. Morris went here and there, ostensibly busied on hospitable concerns, but he had ever a shrewd glance at disposal. Not a man of the party escaped his sudden, searching looks. He took stock of the bearing of heavy losers, he valued the amount of the stakes, he paused behind couples who were deep in conversation, and, in a word, there was hardly a characteris tic of any one present but he seemed to catch and make a note of it. Brack enbury began to wonder if this were Indeed a gambling hell ; it had so much the air of a, private inquisition. He followed Mr.' Morris in all his move ments, and, although the man had a ready smile, he seemed to perceive, as it were under a mask, a haggard, care worn and preoccupied spirit. The fel lows around him laughed and made their game, but , Brackenbury had lost interest in the guests. "This Morris," thought he, "is no Idler In the room. Some deep purpose Inspires him. Let it be mine to fathom it," ' 1 . ' coirniTOED. , Reason Why. Bertie You don't call on Miss Love lets any more. Have you got over your love-for her?
