WATERBUUY EVENING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1908.
TEE PORT OF MISSING MEN By MEHEVITH JVlCHOLSOfl, AulHer of "The Beus of ft Thoaaana1 Candl.s" COPYRIGHT. 1907. BY THE B The rain wos soaking Armltnge thor oughly, but Hs persistent beat covered iny alisht noises made by bis own movements, and be ' was now Intent upon the little room and Its occupants. Qe observed tlie care with which tbe Van kept close to bis coat, and be pon lered, tbe matter as be bung upon tbe , balcony.' If. Chauvenet was on bis way to America It was possible tbat be would carry with blm tbe Important paper whose loss bad caused so much anxiety to tbe Austrian minister. If so, where was it during bis stay In Geneva? The old man's death Is only tbe first step. We require a succession of deaths." "We require three, to be explicit, not mora or less. We should be fortunate If tbe remaining two could be accom plished as easily as Stroebel's." "He was a beast Be is well dead." ."Tbat depends on the way you look at.lt They seem really to be mourn ing tbe old beggar at Vienna. It la the way of a people. . They like to be ruled by a savage band. The people, aa you have heard me say before, are fools." The last speaker was a young man whom Armitage had never seen before. Be was a decided blond, with close trimmed - straw colored beard and lightly curling hair. Opposite him, and facing the door, sat CbauTenet On the table between them were de canters and liqueur glasses. ,T: am going to America at once." said Chauvenet holding his filled glass toward a brass lamp of an old type that hung from the celling. . "It Is probably just as well," said the other. "There's work to do there. We must not forget our more legiti mate business in the midst of these pleasant aide issues." The field is easy. After our delight ful continental capitals, where, as you know, one 1s never quite sure of one self, it is pleasant to breath tho demo cratic airs of Washington." remarked Chauvenet "Particularly so, my dear friend, when one is blessed with your delight ful social gifts. I envy you your ca pacity for making others happy." There was a keen irony hi the fel low's tongue, and the edge of it evi dently touched Chauvenet, who scowl ed and bent forward, with hta fingers n the table. -."Enough of that. If you please." "As you will, carino, but you will pardon me for offering my condolences en the regrettable departure of la belle Americaine. If you had not been so Intent on matters of state you would undoubtedly have found her here. As It is, you are now obliged to see her on her native soil. A month m Wash ington may do much for you. She is beautiful and reasonably rich. Her brother, the tall captain, is said to be the best horseman in the American army. "Humph! He is an ass," ejaculated Chauvenet . A servant now appeared bearing a fresh bottle of cordial. He was distin guished by a small head upon a tall and powerful body and bore little re semblance to a house servant While he brushed the cigar ashes from the table the men continued their talk without heeding him. Chauvenet and his friend had spoken from the first in French, but in ad dressing some directions to the servant, the blond, who assumed the role of host, employed a Servian dialect "I think we were saying that the mortality list in certain directions will have to be stimulated a trifle before we can do our young friend Francis any good. Ton have business in Amer ica,' carino. That' paper we filched from old Stroebel strengthens our hold on Francis, but there is still that ques tion as to Karl and Frederick Augus tus. Our dear Francis is not satisfied. Be Wishes to be quite sure that his dear father and brother are dead. We must reassure him, dearest Jules." "Don't be a fool, Durand. You never eem to understand that tbe United States of America is a trifle larger than a barnyard. And I don't believe those fellows are over there. They're probably lying in wait here somewhere ready to take advantage of any oppor tunitythat is, if they are alive. A man can hardly fall to be impressed v 1th the fact that so few lives stand between him and" "The heights the heights!" And tho young man, whom Chauvenet called Durand, lifted his tiny glass airily. "Tea,- the heights," replied Chauve net a Uttle dreamily. "But that declaration that docu ment! ; Ton have never honored me with a glimpse, but you have it put safely away, I dare say." "There is no place but one that I dare risk. It is always within easy coach, my dear friend." ' "Tou will do well to destroy that doc ument It is much better out of tbe way." "Your deficiencies in the matter of wisdom are unfortunate. That paper constitutes our chief asset my dear associate. So long as we have it we are able to keep dear Francis in order. Therefore we shall hold fast to it, re membering that we risked much in re moving it from the lamented Stroebel's "Do you say 'risked much?' My val ned neck, that is all 7 ssld the other. "Ton and Winkelried are without grat itude." "Tea will do well," said Chauvenet to keep an eye open In Vienna for the unknown. If you bear murmurs in Hungary one of thee flue days! Nothing has happened for some time; .therefore much tasy Serpen. He glanced at his wr.tch. ' "I have work In rails before sailing O B M E R R I L L COMPANY for New York. Shall we dlscuse the matter of those Terurian claims? Tbat is business. These other affairs are more In the nature of delightful diver sions, my dear comrade." They drew nearer tbe table, and Du rand produced a box ot pnpers, over which he bent with serious attention. Armitage bnd heard practically all of their dialogue and, what was of equal interest, bad beeu able to study the faces and leant the tones of voice of the two conspirators. He was cramp ed from bis position on tbe narrow bal cony and wet and chilled by the rain, which was now slowly abating. He had learned much that he wished to know and with an ease that astonished him, and be was well content to with draw with gratitude for bis good for tune. ; His legs were numb, and he clung close to the railing of the little ladder for support as he crept toward tbe area. At tbe second story his foot slipped on the wet iron, smooth from long use, and be stumbled down sev eral steps before he recovered himself. He listened a moment heard nothing but the tinkle of tbe rain In the spout then continued his retreat. As he stepped out upon the brick courtyard he was seized from behind by a pair of strong arms that clasped him tight In a moment he was thrown across the threshold of a door into an nnlighted room, where his captor promptly sat upon him and proceeded to strike a light ChapterV A LOST CIGARETTE CABB. HE man clinched Armi tage about the body with his legs while he struck a match on a box he pro duced from his pocket The suddenness with which he had been flung into the kitchen bad knocked . the breath out of Armitage, and the huge thighs of his captor pinned his arms tight The match spurted fire, and he looked Into the face of the servant whom he had seen In the room above. His round head was covered with short wirelike hair that grew low upon his narrow forehead. Armitage noted, too, the man's bull-like neck, small' sharp eyes and bristling mustache. The fit ful flash of the match disclosed the rough furniture of a kitchen. The brick flooring and his wet Inverness lay cold at Armitage's back. The fellow growled an execration in Servian. Then with ponderous diffi culty asked a question in German. "Who are you and what do you want here?" Armitage shook his head and replied in English: "I do not undestand." The man struck a series of matches that he might scrutinize his captive's face, then ran his hands over Armi tage's pockets to make sure he had no arms. The big fellow was clearly puz zled to find that he had caught a gen tleman in water soaked evening clothes lurking in the area, and as the matter was beyond his wits it only remained for him to communicate with his mas ter. This, however, was not so readily accomplished. He had reasons of his own for not calling out and there were difficulties in the way of holding the ' prisoner and at tbe same time bring ing down the men who had gone to the most distant room in the house for ; their own security. I Several minutes passed during which the burly Servian struck his matches and took account of his prisoner, and j meanwhile Armitage lay perfectly still, j his arms fast numbing from the rough clasp of the stalwart servant's legs. I There was nothing to be gained by a ; struggle in this position, and he knew j that the Servian would not risk losing i him In the effort to summon the odd pair who were bent over their papers at the top of the house. The Servian was evidently a man of action. "Get up," he commanded, still In rough German, and he rose in the dark and Jerked Armitage after hint. There : was a moment of silence in which Ar- i mitage shook and stretched himself, j and then the Servian struck another i match and held it close to a revolver : which he held pointed at Armitage's j head. j "I will shoot" he said again in his I halting German. j "Undoubtedly you will!" and some thing In the fellow's manner caused ; Armitage to laugh. He had been ; caught and he did not at once see any 1 safe issue out of his predicament, but i his plight had its preposterous side and j the ease with which he had been taken ' at the very outset of his quest tonched ; his humor. Then he sobered instantly '! and concentrated his wits npon the lm- ! mediate situation. J The Servian backed away, with a match upheld in one hand and the lev-1 eled revolver in the other, leaving Ar- 1 mitage In the middle of the kitchen. j "I am going to light a lamp, and If j you move I will kill you," admonished j tbe fellow, and Armitage beard his : feet scraping over the brick floor of tbe ' kitchen as he backed toward a table that stood against . the wall near the outer door. , Armitage stood perfectly still. The neighborhood and the house itself were quiet. The two men In the third story room were probably engrossed with the business at which Armitage had left them, and his immediate affair was with the Servian alone. The fellow continued to mumble his threats, but -4eZ Xrmltage bad resolved to play tbe part of an Englishman who understood no German, and be addressed tbe man sharply In English several tiroes to sig nify tbat be did not understand. Tbe Servian half turned toward bis prisoner, tbe revolver In bis left band, while with tb fingers of his right be felt laboriously for a lamp that bad been revealed by the fitful flashes of the matches. It ia not an easy matter to light a lamp when you have only one hand to work with, particularly when you are obliged to keep an eye on a mysterious prisoner of whose character you are ignorant, and It was several mlnntes before tbe Job was done. "You. will go to that .oroer," and the Servian translated for bis prison er's benefit with a gesture of the re volver. "Anything to please you, worthy fel low," replied Armitage, and be obeyed with amiable alacrity. The man's ob ject was jo get hlrn as far from the Inner door as possible while he called help from above, which was, of course, the wise thing from bis point of view, as Armitage recognized. Armitage stood with his back against a rack of pots. Tbe table was at his left and beyond It the door opening upon the court. A barred window wa$ at his right Opposite him was another door that communicated with the In terior of the house and disclosed the lower steps of a rude stairway leading upward. The Servian now closed and locked the outer kitchen door - with care. Armltnge had lost his bat In the area; his light walking stick lay in the middle of the floor; his Inverness coat hung wet and bedraggled about him; his shirt was crumpled and soiled. But his air of good humor and his tame ac ceptance of capture seemed to Increase the Servian's caution, and he backed away toward the inner door with his revolver still pointed at Armitage's head. He began calling lustily up the nar row stairwell In Servian, changing In a moment to German. He made a ludicrous figure, ns he held his revolver at arm's length, craning his neck Into the passaga and howling until he wns red In the face. He paused to listen, then renewed his cries, while Armi tage, with his back against the rack of pots, studied tbe room and made his plans. "There Is a thief here! I have caught a thief r yelled the Servian, now exas perated by the silence above. Then, as he relaxed a moment and turned to make sure'that his revolver still cov ered Armitage, there was a sudden sound of steps above, and a . voice bawled angrily down the stairway: "Zmal, stop your noise and tell me what's the trouble." It was the voice of Durand speaking In the Servian dialect and Zmal opened his mouth to explain. As the big fellow roared his reply Armitage snatched from tbe rack a heavy Iron boiling pot. swung It high by the bail with both hands and let It Armitage ran Ms hand through the pocket. fly with all his might at the Servian's head, upturned in the earnestness of his bawling. On the instant the re volver roared loudly In the narrow kitchen, and Armitage seized the brass lamp and flung It from him upon the hearth, where it fell with a great clat ter without exploding. It was instantly pitch dark. The Servian had gone down like a felled ox, and Armitage, at the threshold, leaped over him into the hall past the rear stairs, down which the men were stum bling, cursing volubly as they came. Armitage had assumed the existence of a front stairway, and now that be was launched upont an unexpected ad venture he was In a humor to prolong it for a moment even at further risk. He crept along a dark passage to the front door, found and turned the key to provide himself with a ready exit, then, as he heard the men from above stumble over tbe prostrate Servian, he bounded up the front stairway, gained the second floor, then tbe third and readily found by its light the room that he had observed earlier from the outside. Below there was smothered confu sion and the crackling of matches as Durand and Chauvenet sought to grasp the unexpected situation that confront ed them. The big servant Armitage knew, would hardly be able to clear matters for them at once, and he hur riedly turned over the packets of pa pers that lay on the table. They were claims of one kind and another against several Smith and Central American republics, chiefly for naval and mili tary supplies, and he merely noted their general character. They were, on tbe face of It, certified accounts In the usual manner of business. On the back of each had been printed with a rubber stamp the words: "Vienna, Paris, Washington. Chauvenet et Durand." Armitage snatched up the coat which Chauvenet had so carefully placed on the bark of bis chair, ran his hands through the pockets, found them empty, then gnthered the garment tightly In his hands, laugfued a Uttle to himself to feel the papers sewn Into the lining and laughed again as he tore the lining loose and drew forth a flat linen envelope brilliant with three seals of red wax.
