I from his "afternoon off.’* At the head

voices were raised in angry argument,
and a scuffle ensued. Jocelyn bounded
to the door and opened It, to llnd ‘Tal

raved and struggled quite unavailing

"Won’t you finish your fight lu my

"Yes, Mr, ’ replied Talbot, dropping

“Yes, sir." said Talbot, and together
they carried the writhing figure Into
the bedroom and laid it on the bed.

He went hack into his bedroom.
The man on th** bed, exhausted by his
unavailing struggle, now lay passive
under Talbot's strict guardianship, but
glared defiance at Jocelyn out of his
bloodshot eyes.
"Talbot,” said Jocelyn, "we've got
another of them in there.” He Indi
cated the recesses of his apartment
with his hand.
"Yes, sir; indeed, sir?" answered
Talbot respectfully.
“It’a a girl. Talbot. She came In a

The figure on the bod writhed con
vulsively ami strained until tho bonds
seemed ready to burst. Talbot leaped
promptly upon his chest, depositing
bis portly form there with considera
ble violence. A strangling gasp came
from the gag.
“Get off. Talbot,” commanded his
master "You should have Interpreted
my Instructions a little more figura
tively. 1 forgot that he understood
Kngllsh. That’s right; tie him to the
bed so that he can’t roll loose. 'That
will save you any unexpected trouble.
Well, I’ve put my foot Into It now, so
I may us well go on As 1 was saying,
this young woman, evidently laboring
under an access of distress, insisted
upon being accommodated In my wine
cellar, and there she still remains, as
I suppose. Now the question is, are
they a pulr of lunatics, or Is this mere
ly a domestic difference, and ought 1
to make peace between them or let
them both cool off?’*
"I should venture to suggest, sir—"
began Talbot. Rut what his venture
would have been never transpired, for
at. that moment there came anothvr
ring ai the door and Jocelyn w*:it
back to open It.
A tall man in a frock coat, and wear-
It g a silk hat that had evidently met
with (on-iderable nil u <•, stood at the
threshold. When he say Jocelyn he
raised his arn.s in a wild gesture
"Scoundrel! A aside! Thiel! Hlack
mailer!” he shouted.
"At your service, sir." Jocelyn re
plied courteously. "Our home Is rather
full for our present limited quarters,
but I think that w*. can make you
comfortable. Wo have an ample sup
ply of cold water, available at all
hours, both night and day, and you
shall be fitted tor your strap jacket
aa soon as our cutter Is disengaged.
Won’t you walk In? -
‘I In* tall man availed himself of the
invitation to enter. As Jocelyn fol
lowed him h** swung round and
grasped him by the lapels of fils coat,
shouting;
"(live me my daughter, scoundrel.
She is here; I know it. Restore her to
me instantly. Ah, you tremble, do
you? Hand her to m** unharmed or I
will have your life." He saw the bed

Jocelyn with a swift movement Puer-

i.pted him. The stranger lu*-Rated,
then his glance fell upon Lord Joce
lyn's fencing foils which hang upon
the wall over his reading «1. sk. and
with a rapid and wholly uuexpccted
motion he snatched them down,
snapped off the protecting buttons and
tossed one to Jocelyn. "Kn garde," he
shouted. "You shall pay dearly for
your atrocity. Kn garde!" and he put
himself in an attitude of attack.
Jocelyn picked up his weapon.
"New which would a physician rec
ommend?” he mused. "A cold pack or
torn presses? Our medical supervisor,
sir," ho continued, "has not yet been
engaged, but —"
He parried a wild lunge by about a
quarter of an inch, and the foils hissed
and clashed. Over the stranger’s
shoulder Jocelyn saw Talbot's fa.’e
appear. He nodded to his servant's
gesture of Interrogation, and t! ** *;;!!

"Assassin!" he howled, douhliig kls

well?"
"Acute mania." murmured Jocclvn,
dropping th** point of his weapon to
keep his adversary nt a*di. lance. "My
dear sir. pray compose yourself. No
body will hurt you. I—"
He had not concluded when a pierc
ing s.'ieam, coming from the direction
of the wine cellar, rang through the
apartment. Talbot bolted out of tho
room. The stranger ran his hands
through his hair and raved.
"You have the advantage!" ho shout
ed. "Well, what do you want? How
much to relinquish her to me and I go?
1 will not prosecute. Oh. my daugh

knees at Jocelyn’s feet nud w*epL
"Hnvo mercy on a father’s feelings,"
ho pulied. "What harm has she
done to you that you should mistreat
her so? Mercy! Mercy!"
Lord Jocelyn’s heart was touched '*y
the appeal. He beckoned to the man
to follow him and led him Into the
bedroom, where the second visitor
still lay upon the bed. evidently inca
pable of further effort As the eves
of the latest coiner fell upon him ho
hurst once more into a paroxysm of
rage.
"Stepan Ivanowltch!" he shouted.
“Let me get at him. I will tear him
limb from limb."
Lord Jocelyn held him bv the arms
until be was exhausted. Then the tall
man sank Into u chair, trembling and
covered with perspiration.
"Now, sir, I begin to see daylight,”
said Jocelyn. "Tell me what Is the
j trouble."
‘That is tho trouble,” said the
stranger, hoarsely, but quite composed
at las*. Indicating the man on the bed
with shaking ling* r. “I mistook you
for him; you are somewhat alike in
aspect. Il»* Is a villain. Two months
ago, while visiting my home in Kiev
as a commercial traveler lor an Ainer
i nt: firm, he persu.tm-u my dangler,
th*. Prince Xoviboff, to follow him
after his departure for New York. She

His only object, of course, was to ote

my daughter has In her own right. A
barkman told me That he had driven
to the Hotel Neselrode; there, by a

a thousand apologies lor my blunder."
"A fair story," said Jocelyn, clapping
the tall man on tho shoulder. "And
you shall have her —that 1?, if sho
cares to go with you And from cir
cumstances which have transpired 1
have every reason to believe that your
daughter ha 1 already repented of her
mistake. Will you pledge your honor
not to molest this fellow if 1 Iciue
for a moment?"
The stranger nodded. "He is bc
r.c.a’h my vengeance—tho dig." he
said. "With him the law shab deal.”
Jocelyn pa s*\l into the kitchen,
shaking his h» ad mournfully. "A mar
riage is a marriage," ho muttered to
himself, "and I'm afraid you'll find it
harder to undo than you nivMcipato,
my friend. Mademoiselle’ Mademoi

"Will you not entrust youiffelf to

He forced open the door and looked
into the pass. ue. Nobody was (Loro —
neither th** girl nor Talbot. I'vt hur

flight encountered the elevator fff>y ns
cc-nding. "Have you seen a lad/ and
my man come down?" he asked.
The elevator boy shook his hnd.
"Nobody's been down the sfairs,
sir," he answered.
“They’ve come down the elevator,
then.” suggested Jocelyn.
"Impossible, air," the boy An
swered.
"Why Impossible?"
"The elevator’s disappeared, sir. I
was just coming up to look for It."
They ran to the end of the corridor
and peered up and down the shaft.
There were no signs of the elevator.
The next flight up,” panted the
ho j. "We*U get a view all the way
up to the top of the shaft from there "
They ascended to the passage outside
Jocelyn’s apartment and again the ele
vator boy peered up and down.
"There she is!" he shouted "She’s
btuck between the fourth flight and the
fifth Wbos got her?” He raised his
volte and shouted: "Jim! oh, Jim!”
And In answer there came back a
blood curding scream
"It’s Tulbot!" Jocelyn cried. "Tal
bot, what are you doing Id there?
Where’s the lady?"
"Here, til,” tame Talbot’s voice
faintly in answer. "Oh, don’t do that
again, lady. Don’t, please don’t. Ow
ow-ow.” Thon came the muffled sound
of some one dancing in the cage.
"Why don’t you bring the elevator
down, you Idiot 0 " Lord Jocelyn asked.
"I can’t, sir. She won’t let me.”
"Pull the rope, Idiot; pull!"
"Yes, sir," answered Tails t respect
fully, and a moment later the iron
cage shot heavily downward, quivered,
and stopped six Inches below the level
of the gate. The bellboy opened It
with a grin. Talbot came limping out,
pressing hi** hand to his leg and groan
ing. Jocelyn pushed him aside and
helped the gni respectfully into the
passage.
Her face was bloodless, but her eyes
flashed, and In one hand she field
something long and sharp and very
slender—a liatpiu. The cause o! Tal
bot’s woe was self-declared.
".She stabbed me with It. sir." said
Talbot, woefully. "And after me try
ing to help er get away, to go and do
a thing lik«* that!"
"Ah, well, Talbot, we have th** oth3r
man worse than that,” said Jocelyn
cheerfully.
"The other man. sir? *
"The other eloper, idiot."
"Oh, Lord, sir. you wouldn’t go for
to accuse me of such a thing?" said
Talbot, flabbergasted. "If Mrs. Talbot
was to know—"
"Come, shake yourself " his master
said. "Run through the back entrance
and open tho door for us. Mademoi
selle, permit me."
Ho extended his arm, and attor a
moment's hesitation th** girl, still
clutching her pin, stiff) red him to
usher lur inside as Talbot opened the
door to them. As he followed the girl
he beard a cry. With a bound tbe tall
man was at her side: he extended his
arms, and with a sob the girl I oil Into
them.
"My daughter,” sobbed the tall man.
"My dearest daughter.”
"Papa!" she sobbed In answer. lay
ing her head upon his shoulder. "Dear
est papa."
"You will cotr.e home with me, All
vie? You have done with him?"
"I hate him, papa," she answered.
"Papa." she continued, weeping, he —
lie
"My dearest?"
"lie asked me for trsy diamond
brooch and, when I would not give to
to hint —he struck me."
Lord Jocelyn rushed into his led
room ami slammed the door behind
him, turning the key just in time. On
the far side he heard the tall man
hammering In a frenzy. He sprang to
the bed, tor** oft the captive's bonds
nnd pulled the gng from his mouth.
"Get out!" he cried, pointing to the
door at the far end of his apartment.
"You’ll be killed if you don't. Vanish!
Evaporate!"
The man needed no further com
mand. He leaped from the bed and
ran in the direction of the kitchen.
Jocelyn followed him to the passage
and pointed down the stairs. Then he
went back and opened the bedroom
door to the enraged Russian.
“Where is he?" the father cried.
“He's gone,” said Jocelyn, pushing
him back into a chair. “You want no
scandal. You’ll not see him again. Be
thankful that your daughter la re
stored to you. And now, Talbot," ne
lontlnued. turning to Itfi eerraat.
"perhaps you will explain your con
nection with this affair."
"W’y, sir," said Talbot sheepishly,
“Wen the lady gave that hawful
scream I went to see If she required
anything. She pulled me by the arm.
‘Save rne. save me.’ she said So 1

So. not knowing w ere to save er to,

Talbot resentfully.
"Oh. Talbot," said Jocelyn rep roach
fully, “what will Mrs Talbot say?”
*1 swear, sir—" Talbot began.
"Don’t swear at me, Talbot. 1 be

your story will ound quite plausible

If*- broke off suddenly and a more
Serb a look came ov* r his face
"I’m afraid this is a bad business,
sir," he said to the Russian nobleman.
"That scoundrel seems to have suc
ceeded in inducing your daughter to
have ‘he marriage ceremony per
formed."
"Legging your pardon, sir, they
ain’t." said Talbot.
"What d’you mean?* cried Lord Joce
lyn. turning on him angrily.
"This ere certificate, sir," said Tal
bot. pulling out the paper. 'I tool; the

seeing as ’e made 'er believe th.it the

"Talbot," said Jocelyn, lay.ng his

Russian again
’ You see. sir, by an act of Provi

clutches of that scoundrel," h«* -aid.
"My advice to you now is that you
take no further steps to bring him to
justice, for Le will never cross your
path again."
"How can I ever thank you? ' cried
the nobleman
"By allowing me to accompany you
to a hotel where you can spend :he
night.” said Jocelyn smiling. And to
morrow, if you will permit me. I shall
endeavor to wipe out the memory of
these painful events by showing you
and your daughter the natural beau
ties of our metropolis.” He handed
him his card, which the nobleman
took, and after glancing at it put it
in his card-case from which, with a
bow, he drew forth one of his own.
"Hut I must repay you, my friend,”
ho said, looking round for his hat,
which Talbot deftly brushed with his
coat sleeve and b;.nd< d to him. "Only
name a reward, no matter what, and it
is yours for the asking.”
Lord Jocelyn looked at the young
girl and sigh* d. For one moment .. u
quest, au laciou# and impossible, trem
bled upon his lips. Then be roi res -ed
it :i at:l .1 '
"in that case, sir,” he said, "tomor

With these, strongly used, one can do
almost anything "Does capital meet

Or again: "You take the generation*
