Three or four of his auditors rushed to the assistance of Mine, fauvel. who seemed about: to faint, and al the same lime he felt his arm roughly seized by some one behind him. lie turned round and faced De Olamer.'in anil I.agors, both of whom were pale with anger. "What, do you want, gentlemen?" he inquired, politely. "To speak to you," thev both answer ed. lie tullowed them to the end of the picture gallery, near a window opening in a balcony. The sudden faintness of Mme. h'auvel hail passe off unnoticed save by a few, who atlrihut'cd it to the heat, of the room. M. Fauvel had been sent for. but when he came hurrying in. he found his wife composedly talking to Madeleine. Not. having as much control over his temper as llaoul. M. de Clameran an grily said: "In the first place, monsieur, I wouI:l like to know who you are." "You want my passport, do you, my lord doge? I left it in the hands of the city authorities it contains my name, nge, profession, domicile and every de tail "You have just committed a gross in sult! What do you mean by telling this abominable story in this house?" "Abominable! You may call it abom inable, but I. who composed it, have a u'.iferent opiilion of it." "15nough, monsieur you will at least have the courage to acknowledge that your performance was a vile insinuation against M. Fauvel V" "Bless my heart!" cried the clown, as if speaking to himself. "This is the strangest thing I ever heard of. How can my drama of the Mandarin Li-Fo have any reference to M. Fauvel, whom I don't know from Adam or Eve?" "Do you pretend," said M. de Clam eran. "to be ignorant of M. Fauvel's misfortune?" "Ah, yes, yes, I remember. Ilis cash ier ran off with three hundred and tifty thousand francs. Pshaw! It is a thing that almost daily happens. But as to discovering any connection between this robbery and my play, that is another matter. If, unintentionally, I have of fended the wife of a man whom 1 highly esteem, it is his business to seek redress. Perhaps you will tell me he is too old to demand satisfaction if so. let him Rent one of his sons. You asked me who I am: in return ask you who you are —you who undertake to act as Madame Fauvel's champion? Are you her rela tive, friend or ally? What right have you to insult her by pretending to dis cover an allusion to her in a play invent ed for amusement?" There was nothing to be said in reply to this. M. de Clameran sought a means of escape. "I am a friend of M. Fauvel." he said, "and this title gives me the right to be ns jealous of his reputation as if it were my own. If this is not a Kufll cient reason for my interference, I must inform you that his family will shortly he mine I regard myself as his nephew. Next week, monsieur, my marriage with Mile. Madeleine will ho publicly an nounced." This news was so unexpected, so startling, that for a moment the clown was dumb and now his surprise was genuine. But he soon recovered him self, and, bowing with deference, said, with covert irony: "Permit me to offer my congratula tions, monsieur. Besides, being the belle to-night, Mile. Madeleine is worth, 1 hear, half a million." Haoul de Lagors had anxiously been watching the people near them, to see if they overheard this conversation. "We have had enough of this gos sip," he said, in a disdainful tone "I will only say one thing more. Master Clown, and that is that your tongue is too long." "Perhaps it is. my pretty youth, per haps it is but my arm is still longer." De Clameran here interrupted them by saying: "It is impossible for one to seek an explanation from a man who conceals his identity under the guise of a fool." "You are at liberty, my lord doge, to ask the master of the house who I am —if you dare." The clown stood by with a sardonic smile, and after a moment's silence star ed Clameran steadily in the face, and in measured tones said: "1 was the best friend, monsieur, that your dead cousin ever had. I was his adviser, and the confidant of his last wishes." These few words fell like a clap of thunder upon De Clameran. lie turned deadly pale, and started back with his hands stretched out before him, as if shrinking from a phantom. lie tried to answer, io protest against this .issenion. but the words froze on his lips. His fright was pitiable. "Come, let us go," said Lagors, who was perfectly cool. And he dragged Clameran away, half supporting him, for he staggered like a drunken man, and clnng to every object he passed, to prevent falling. "Hello!" exclaimed the clown. He himself was almost as much a*ton lsbed as the ironmaster, and remained rooted to the spot, watching the latter a* he slowly left the room. E I E A O I A 1 Safe "Winn ran this mean?" he meriinm-l. "Wrfy was lie so frightened? What ter rible memory have 1 awakened in his has" soul?'' The clown threw aside his banner, and started in pursuit of Mme. Fauvel. II" found her sitting on a sofa in the large saloon, engaged in an animated coir er sation with -Madeleine. "Of ronr.-e tli«\v are talking over the scene, bill. I have nothing more to do here," he murmured "I might as well go. too." He completely covered his dress with a domino, and started lor home, thinking the cold, frosty air would cool his cou I'rsed brain. CI I APT KH XVIII. The clown walked up the Hue St La zare and struck into the Faubourg Mnnt martro. A man suddenly started out from a place of concalmeut, and rush ed upon him with a dagger. Fortunately the clown had si cat like instinct, which enabled him to protect himself against immediate danuer. He saw, or rather divined, the man crouch ing in the dark shadow of a hosise." and had the presence oi mind to strike an attitude which enabled him to ward off the assassin by spreading out his arms before 1-iin. This movement certainly saved his life, for he received in liis arm a furi ous stab which would have instantly killed him had it penetrated his breast. Anger mure than pain made him cry ou!: "Ah. you villain!" And recoiling a few fee lie put Iiim selt (!ii the defensive. But the precau tion was useless. Seeing his blow miss, the assassin did not return to tho at tack, but made rapidly off. "That was certainly Lagors."' said the clown, "and Clainrran must be some where near. While walked around one side of the church they must have gone the other and lain in wait for me." His wound began to pain him lie stood under a gas lamp to examine if. I:, did not appear to be dangerous, but the arm was cut through to tiie bone. lie tore his handkerchief into four bunds, and tied his arm up with the dexterity of a surgeon. "I must be on lise track of some great crime, since those k-ilows are resolved upon murder. When such cunning roisues are only in danger of the police court they do not gratuilously risk the chance of being tried for murder." He thought by enduring a great: dc.il o[ pain he might still use his arm, so he started in pursuit, of his enemy, taking care to keep in the middle of the roml. and avoid all dark corners. Although he saw no one, he was convinced that he was being pursued, lie was not mistak en. When he reached the Boulevard Montmartre lie crossed the street, and as he did so distinguished two shadows which he reeogni/.ed. He walked rapidly on, abruptly stop ped, and asked some significant ques tions of two policemen who were stand ing talking together. Tho maneuver lmd the result he expected: Baonl and Clam eran stood perfectly still about twenty steps off. not daring to advance. Twenty steps! That was ns much start as ihe clown wanted. While talk ing with the police lie had pulled the bell of the door before which they were stnudin-r and the clii-k of the lifted latch apprised him that the door was tipeu. He bowed and entered the house. A minute later the police had passed on. and Labors and Clameran in their turn rang the boll. When the janitor appeared they asked who it. was that had just gone in disguised ns a clown. They were told that no such person had entered, and that none of the lodg ers had gone out disguised that night. "However," added the janitor. "I am not very sure, for this house has a back door which opens on the Hue St. Denis." "We are tricked," interrupted Lagors, "and will never know who the clown is." "Unless we learn it too soon for our own good," said Clameran, musingly. While Lagors and Clameran were anx iously trying to devise some means of discovering the clown's identity Yerduret hurried up the back street, and reached the Archangel as the clock struck three. Prosper, who was watching from his window, saw him in the distance, and ran down to open the door for him. "What have you learned?" he si:id. "What did you find out? Did you see Madeleine? Were llaoul and Clameran at the ball?" But M. Yerduret was not in the habit of discussing private affairs where lie might be overheard. "First of all, let us go into your room, and get some water to wasli this cut, which burns like fire. It is a little mark of your friend Iiaoul. Ah. I will soon teach him the danger of a man's aim!" Prosper was surprised at the look of merciless rage on his friend's face as he calmly washed and dressed his arm. "Now, Prosper, we will talk as much as you please. Our enemies are on the alert, and we must crush them instantly, or not at all. I lmvc made a mistake. I have been on the wrong track it is an accident liable to happen to any man. no matter how intelligent he may be. I took the effect for the cause. The day I was convinced that a secret existed be tween Iiaoul and Mme. Fauvel I thought I hold the end of the thread that must lead us to the truth. I should have been more mistrustful th:s solution was too simple, too natural The robbery, my friend, has now become a secondary detail. It is easily explained, and if that were all to be accounted lor I would say to you, 'My task is done, let us go ask for a warrant of arrest.' "Ah, you know—is it possible?" "Yes, I know who gave the key, and I km.-.v who iokl the secret word." "The key must have been M. Fauvel's. But the word "The word you were foolish enough to pive. You have forgotten, I suppose. But unfortunately Gypsy remembered. You know that, two days before the robbery, you took Lagors and two other friends to sup with Madame GypsyV Nina was sad, and reproacied yon for not being more cheerful." "Yes. I remember that." "But do you remember what yoa re plied to her? Well, I :i tfU "Nina, you are unjust in reproaching mt, for at this very moment your name guards M. Fauvel's safe." Tho truth suddenly burst unou Pros per like a thunderclap. He wrung his lmnds despairingly, and cried: "Yes, oh, yes! I remember now." "Then yott can easily understand the pvt. One of the :counu'rols wont to Mme. Fauvol, and compelled her to give t.p her husband'- kev then, at a ven ture. placed the movable buttons on he name of psy. opened the safe, and too!: the three hundred and fifty thou sand francs. And Mme. Fauvel must have been terribly frightened before she yielded. The day after the robbery the poor woman was near dying, and it wa» .-.he who, at the greatest risk, sent you the ten thousand francs." "But which was the thief. llaoul or (. laineran: What enables them to thus 1 tyrannize over Mme. Fauvel? And how I does Madeleine come to be mixed up in I the at fair?" "These questions, niy dear Prosper. I c-oi.not yet answer, therefore, I post pone being the judge. I only ask you to w.niL ten days, and if 1 cannot in that time discover the solution of this mystery I will return and go with you to report to M. Patrigent all that we know." "Are you going to leave the city?" "In another hour I shall be on the road to Beaucaire. It: was from that neighborhood that Clameran came, as well as Mme. Fauvel, who was a Mile, do la Yerhene before marrying." "Yes. I know both families." "I must go there to study them. Xcith er Baoul nor Clameran can escape dur ing my absence. The police are watch ing them. But you. Prosper, must be puidcnt. Promise me to remain a pris oner here during my trip." All that M. Yerduret asked Prosper willingly promised. But he did not wish to be lo 11 in complete ignorance of his projects for tin* future, or of his motives in tho past. "Will you not tell me. monsieur, who you are. and what reasons you have for coming to luy rescue?" The extraordinary man hmiled sadly, and said: "I will tell you, the presence of Xina, on the day before your marriage with Madeleine." Once left lo his own rciloctions Pros per began to appreciate the powerful assistance rendered by hisal'rieiid. lie had the good sanse to follow the recom mendations of his mentor, lie remained shut lip in the Archangel, not even ap pearing at the windows. Ou tho ninth day of his voluntary se clusion Prosper began to feel restless and at 10 o'clock at night sot foriii to take a walk, thinking the fresh air would relieve the headache which had kept him awake the previous night. Having reached tho Orleans railway station, he went into a cafe near by. picked up the Soieil, and under the head of "Fashionable Gossip" read the follow ing: "We understand that the niece of one of our most prominent: bankers, M. Fau vel, will be shortly married to the Mar quis Louis de Clameran. The engage ment has been announced." lie called for pen and paper, and, for getting that no situation can excuse the mean cowardice of an anonymous let ter. wrote in a disguised baud the follow ing lines lo M. Fauvel: "Dear Sir—You have consigned your cashier to prison you acted prudently, since you were convinced of his dishon esty and faithlessness. But even if he stole money from your safe, does it fol low that he also stole Mme. Fauvel's diamonds and pawned them at the Mont do-ieto, where they are now. "Moreover, I would, before signing the marriage contract of Mile. Madeleine, inquire at the Prefecture of Police and obtain some information concerning the i.o!)li- Marqc.is de C!:i icran. "A 1-TUKND." Prosper hastened off to post his let ter. Fearing that it would not roach M. Fauvel in time, he put it in the main letter box. so as to be certain of its speedy delivery. At that very hour M. Yerduret was taking his scat in the cars at Tnrascon, meditating upon the most advantageous plan to be adopted in pur suance of his discoveries. For he bad discovered everything, and now must bring matters to a crisis. As he had predicted, lie had been compelled to search into the distant past for the first causes of the crime of which Pros per had been the victim. The following is the drama, as he wrote it out for the benefit of the judge of instruction, knowing that it would contain grounds for au indictment against the malefactors: (To be continued. Origin oi' Marine Insurance. Marine insurance is a much older system than most folk probably know it dates back to the early days of Greece and liome.

The first marine insurance people in this country were Germans, the Merchants of the Steel yard, who came to England in the reign of Edward IV. They area most strange race of men, for they lived to gether in a community like monks, and were not allowed to marry or even to speak to women. The site of their old residences is where Cannon street railway station now stands.

The Arrow, Captain Thomas S. Bald win's airship, which Tuesday sailed over the world's fair grounds anil portions of the city of St. Iaiu's. landing in a corn field near Galiokia, 111., js entered in the $.100,000 contest for dirigible balloons. A. K. Kiiabanschue. who piloted the ma chine, is a Toledo (Ohio) olectrical engi neer, 27 years old. He said ho had per fect control of his ship until liis engine went dead over the manufacturing build ing at the world's fair grounds. "From that pomt," continued Mr. Kuabansehuc, "1 must acknowledge that I and the ma chine were at the mercy of the ten-mile breeze in which we had become embraced and until the landing was safely made over in Illinois a higher power than more machinery stood between me and destruc tion." Experts believe the Baldwin balloon will be completely dirigible as soon as •slight corrections in its mechanism are made. It is cigar shaped, of Japanese silk, fifty-four feet in Jeiigtli and seven teen feet an diameter and requires 8.000 cubic feet of gas to inflate it. The frame attachment is thirty loot in length. It carries a double cylinder, seven-horse power gasoline engine, making 2,000 revo lutions a minute, to drive the propellers. One of the chief new features is an ar rangement whereby the ship is pulled through air, instead of being pushed.

MISFIT SCHOONER NAMES. Boow Flake* Never White-A Bonanza That Never Paid tier Way. A group of captains of a sailing craft were chatting In a eliipbroker's office recently. The conversation finally turned on the names givtsi to coasting schooners, and one old captain, whn has sailed up and down the coast foi many years, said: "It seems to mo that some of th« owners know ns little about naming a vessel as tlie^y do about sailing her. The names that some ves-xds carry are very inappropriate. "There used to be a schooner called the Bonanza. Now that was an absurd name for that vessel. Klie was any thing but a bonanza to anyone whn owned her. Why, in just, tlirec months she was sold four times for debt, and f.lie never paid her way as long as she lasted.
