"And why?"
"To see,"
Boroany obeyed ; and he obtained the
following :

The letters had senrcely been written
before Toronthal snatched tho paper

his head. Sarcany thought he had gone
"Head 1" said Toronthal, holding out
the paper to Sarcany. "Rend !"
" Read 1"
"Yes I don't you see that, before they
used the gratinff. Count Sandorf's cor
respondents wrote tho letter backwards ?"
Sarcany took tho paper, nnd tliis is
what ho read, proceeding from the last
to the first:
"Tout est pret. Au premier signal
quo vous nous enverrez de Trieste, tons
pe loverout en masso pour 1'indcpend
enoo de la Hongrie. Xrznh.
"And tho four last letters ?" ho asked.
"An agreed-upon signature, or some
thing to 1111 up," f.oid Toronthal.
"Oh, llieul 'All is ready. At the
'bet Mgual you send us from Trieste, nil
tf us will riso together for the independ
encoof Hungary!' That is it, is it? Well,
v?e have got them at lust t

"That is my business."
" You will act with great Mvreey ? "
" That is my" said Sammy.
"The Governor of TrieMo shall bo the
only person to know tho names of the
two honest patriots who havo nipped in
ila bud this conspiracy nguinst the em
pire of Austria I"
And ns ho spoke, the mockery of each
tone and gesture betrayed the true feel
ing with which ho littered the words.
"Aud now I havo nothing else to do,"
eaiil tho banker.
"Nothing," answered Sarcnny, "ex
cept to tnke your share of tho profit"
"When tho thveo heads fall which
are worth a million apiece."
Toronthal and Sarcany bid each other
adieu. If they wished to gain nnything
out of tho secret that chance had handed
over to them they bo quick and
denonnco tho conspirators before tho
plot broke out.
Sarcany returned to Znthmnr' house
if nothing had occurred, and went on
witii tho accounts. His work was nearly
finished. Count K.uidorf, in thiiiikiug
him for tho zeal ho hud shown, told him
that ho should not require Ills hiuvuvs
after tho next eighteen days.
' To Sareany's mind this meant that
ubout that time tho hignal was to bo
given from Triosto to thu chief of lluu
garinu towns.
Ho continued, therefore, to wntch with
tlio greatest care, but so as to gieiiso
to no suspicion, all that tool; place in
Zathmai's houto. And ho lduycd his

made Hungary u fie country. It was
uot so with lioiik. who had neer got
oer tho lil'M feeling of dislike with
which tho young man had inspired
Sarcany nenred his triumph.
It was mi tho llth of Jiinii that Count
Siudorf had agreed with his friends to

Ifiiii'urv in accordance with the treaty
of 1815, is n triangular peninsular of
which the isthmus form the base.
This peninsula extends from tho Gulf

haibors. Among others, almost nt tho
extreme southern point, is Pola, which

situated almost iu tho centre of the tri
angle, and thither, unknown to them,
the prisoners wore about to bo taken
utter their secret arrest.
At the door of Zathmar's house a post
ehaiso was waiting. Tho four prisoners
entered it and two of the Austrian
police, who were put iu charge during
the journey, took their places beside
them. They wore thus provented from
exchanging n word which might in any
wny compromise them or iead to a
mutual understanding beforo their
nppearanco in tho dock.
An escort of twelvo mounted gend
nimes, commanded by a lioutentaut
took up their positions in front, behind
aud at tho doors of tho carriage, and
ten minutes afterwards they wero out
of tho town. Borik was taken direct to
the prison at Trieste, and there put into
solitary confinement
Where were the prisoners going? In
what fortress of tho Austrian Govern
ment were thoy to be lodged, since tlio
castlo nt Trieste was not to receive them 1
Count Sandorf and his friends would
havo been glad to know, but they tried
to discover iu voiu.
Tho night was darli By tho light of
tho ojrriago lamps only the first rank
of tho mounted escort could bo seen.
Tho pace was rapid. Sandorf, Bathory
und Zathmar remained motionless and
silent in their comers. Sarcany did
not sock to break the silence, either to
protest against Ins arrast or to ouk why
tho arrest had been made.
After leaving Trieste tho post-ohaiso
made a bend which took it obliquely
towards tho coast. Count Suudford,
amid the noiso of tho trotting horses
and tlio jingling sabres, could hear the
distant niuinnir of tho surf on the roek3
along the shore. For a moment n few
lights shone out iu tho night, nnd almost
immediately disappeared. This wns
the small town of Jluggia, which tho
post chase had just passed without halt
ing. Then Sandoif noticed that tlio lay into the interior.
At cloven o'clock the ch.iso stopped
to change horses. It was only nt a farm.
where the horsea were waiting ready to
be harnessed. It was not n jioat-station.
Tho escort resumed its journey. Tho
carriage passed along a road among tho
vineyardi whero tho vinos interlaced
themselves in festoons to tho brunohea
of the mulberry trees. Tlio road was
flat and tho carriago raado rapid pro
gress. Tlio darkness now grew more
profound, for heavy clouds, brought up
by a violent sirocco from tho southeast
covered tho sky ; and nlthough tho win
dows were lot down from tinio lo timo
to admit a littlo fresh air for tho nights
aro warm in Istria it was impossible to
distinguish anything even closo at
hand. Although Sandorf and his
friends notod every incident on the
rond, tho direction of the wind and tho
time elapsed since their departure, thoy
could not discover the direction m
which tho carriago was traveling. The
object was doubtless to keep it as secret
ns possible so that thoir placo of con
finement should not oo known to uio
Alxmt two o'clock in tho morning
they again changed horses. As at the
first change, the halt did not last tho
Count Sandorf thought he could make
out in tho gloom a few houses at tho
end of n rond, as though on the extremo
outskirt of a lowu.
This was Bujo. tho chief placo of a
liBtrict i-ituated about twenty miles
toiitli of Muggin.
Ah soon as tho horses were put to too
carriage lieutenant spoke a few words to
tho postillion inn low tone, and thoohniso
set oil' at a gallop.
ct half-past throo oeloek tho day le-
gan to dawn. Au hour later the posi
tion of tho rising miii would havo Miown
them the direction in which they were
going, but tho police shut down the
shutters, and the interior of tho car
nage was plunged into complete dark
Neither Count Sandorf nor his friends
made the least observation. It would
not havo been replied to; that was cer.
tain. Tho best tiling to do was to sub
mit and wait.
An hour or two afterwards it was
difllcult to reckon how the time wont
tho post-chaise stopped for tho last time,
and tho clmngo nf horses was very
quickly performed nt Visinada.
As they left here all that oould bo
noticed was that tho road had lieconio
very hard. Theshoiit-J of tho postillion,
the cracking of his whip, incessantly
urged tho horses forward, and the shoes
rattled on tho hard, stony ground of n
mountainous region. A few hills with
little clumps of grayish trees could le
made out on tho horizon. Two or three
times the prisoners heard the sounds o
a flute. They oamo from tho young
blieplierds who were playing their our!
ous tunes as they gathered together
their Hooka of bl.iok goats, but this
afforded no BiifTlcient judication of tlio
country the prisoner were passing
through, That had to bo found out
without sceiuir it
About nine o'clock the ehaio went oil
in quite a dilYerout direction, Unless
thoy wore mistaken they wore dewiend
iug rapidly ufter luivinir reached tho

highest point ot their jnrrimv iti.i
sliced was much increased, nnd oooa
sionally tho wheels had to bn skidded.
In faot after leading through the hilly
country commanded by Mont Mujeur,
tho road drops down obliquely as it ap
proaches risino. Although the town is
very inuoh above Bea level it seems to
bo in a deep valley to judgo from tho
neighboring hills. Some distanco bo
foro it is readied tho campanile nbovo
the houses picturesquely groiqwd on
tho hillside becomes visible.
I'isino is tho chief place of tho dis
trict nnd contains about 2 1,000 inhabi
tants. It is situated almost in tho een
tro of tho peninsula, and particularly nt
fair timo n largo business is done nmong
the mixed population of Morlaqucs,
Sclaves of ilirTorout tribes, nnd even
Tsiganos, who llourish there.
Tho capital of Istrin is an old city, nnd
has retained its feudal ohnraeter. Thii
jtrikiugly appears in the auoiont castlo,
which towers shorn several more mod
ern military establishments whero the
sduiinitratioti of tho government is
carried on.
Itwasintho courtyard of this castlo
that the post-eliaiso stopped on tho Utb
of Juno, about ten o'chmk in tlm nrtm
ing, after n journey of fifteen hours.
Count Sandorf, his two companions and
Sarcany loft the vehicle, and a few min
utes nftorwnrds were shown into separ
ate vaulted cells.
Although they bad had no comtnuni
cation with each other, aud had not been
able to exchange idea iu any wny, yet
Sandorf, Zathmar aud Bathory were all
engaged in pont'.ering over the satno
subject How 1-nd the secret of the
plot been discoverod? Had the polico
como on the track by chaneo? Thero
had recently been no correspondence
betwoen Trieste nnd tho Hungarian nnd
Transylvatiiau towns. Was tltoro a
traitor in tho camp ? But who could be
the traitor 1 Confldeuco had been
placed iu none. Thero were no papers
to fall into a spy's hands. All tlio docu
ments had been destroyed. Had they
rummagod tho most secret corners of
tho Acquedottn they would not havo
found a single suspicious notol And
that is what had happened. Tlio police
had discovered nothing oxcept tho
grating, which Zathmar had uot de
stroyed incase he wanted it for further
nse. But unhappily tho grating was
serious evidence, for it was impossible
to oxplain its use except a n means of
ciphered correspondence.
In fact, everything rested on tho copy
of tho messago that Sarcany, with Tor
onthnl's connivance, had handed over to
the Governor of Trieste after haing
made out its real meaning. But, un
fortunately, thnt was quite enough to
make good tho accusation of conspiring
against the state; and it has been de
cided to tiring Count Sandorf nnd his
friends before a special tribunal, a mil
itary tribunal, whichj would proceed in
military fashion.
Sarcany 's game was n deep one, nnd
ho played it with tho coolness and de
liberation that distinguished him. He
had allowed himself to bo arrested, to bo
convicted, if need be, on tho under
standing that ho should receive a par
don; and in this way ho hoped to disarm
Sandorf wns completely deceived by
him nnd who would not have been?
nnd resolved to do his utmost to clear
him of tlio charge. It would not bo
difllcult, ho thought, to show thnt Sar
cany had taken no pait in the conspir
acy, that ho was merely an accountant
only recently introduced into Zathmar's
house to arrnngo certain private matters
which in no way had referonco to tho
plot. If needful, he oould call Silas
Toronthal to testify to the young man's
innocence. Thero could bo no doubt
therefor'1, that Sarcany would bo found
iuuocent of having been either aprinci
pal of acoosnory, in tho event of tho
prosecution being persisted in.
Tho Austrian Government know
nothing of the conspiracy boyond what
ther heard at Trieste. Tho conspirators
of Hungary nnd Transylvnuia remained
absolutely unknown. There was no
trace m existence of their complicity in
tho plot. Sandorf. Bathory and Zath
mar need havo felt no anxiety on this
head. As far as thoy were concerned
they had made up their minds to deny
overytbiug until some material evt-
doneo was produced. In that case they
new that their lives were forfeited.
Others would ono day take up the
movement thnt had now proved abortive.
The causa of independence would find
now leaders. If they were convicted
they would aow what had been their
hopes. They would ahow tho object at
which they had aimed, and which ono
day or tho other would bo attained.
It was not witliout eomo reason that
Count Sandorf nnd his two friends
thought that tho action of the polico
had been restricted in tho matter. At
Bilda, atl'esth, at Klausenburg, in nil
tho towns in which tho rising was to
ak placo at tho signal from Trieste
uouirtes had been made in vain. That
was why I bo Government had arrested
the chiefs so secretly at Trieste. Thoy
had tent them to l'lsiuo, and desired
tint nothing bhould be known of tho
matter, in tho hopo that something
would happen tobetiuy the seuders of
the cipher message. Tho hopo was uot
realized. Tho expected signal was not
given, Tlio movement was stopped for
a time nt least The Government had
to content itself with trying Sandorf
and his companions for high troasou.
The inquiries took boveial days; and
it was not till the 20th of Juno that the
proceedings began with tho examination
of tho nccused They weio not even
confronted with each other, and were
only to meet before their judges.
1 lie chiefs of the Trieste conspiracy
were, as wo have said, to be tried beforo
a court martial. Tho proceedings be

trial is conducted very quickly, and
thero is no delay in the execution of the
It was so in this matter.
On tho 25th of Juno the court martial
met iu one of tho lower rooms of the
fortress of Pisino, und tlio accused were
brought beforo it. Tho proceedings did
not take very long, aud nothing start
ling was discovered.
The Court opened at nine o clock in
tho morning. Count Sandorf, Count
Zathmar and Professor Bathory, on tho
ouo sido, and Sarcany on tho other, saw
each other for tho first timo since their
imprisonment. Tho clasp nf the hand
which hamlorf and his friend inter
changed us they met, gave yet another
proof of their uuanimity. A sign from
Zathmar, and Bathory gavo Sandorf to
understand that they left him to spoak
for them. Neither would undertako
the defence. All bandorf hail dono up

he thought fit to bay to tho judges,
would lie well said. Tho hoaring was a
public one, But few persons woro
present, for tho affair had not yet
transpired; aim tho spectators, soma
twenty in utimlier, belonged to the
BtnlVoftho onbtlo.
Tlio identity of the accused was first
proved, Then, immediately afterwards,
Sandorf asked tho president tho uame of
thu plaoo which he und his companions
had been brought for trial, but uo reply
was given to tho question.
The identity of Sarcany was likewise
established. Ho still did nothing to
distinguish his case from that of his

replied that it win the duty of tho prose

At this reply tho grating which hud

deny that the grating had been in their
possession. They did not try to. T
such material oWdeiiep there was no IC

mitted theeryptopraphiolettertobe read,
and the letter must consequently haie
been received.
And thus they learned how the secret
of the conspiracy had been discovered
and the basis on which tho prosecution
wns originated.
From this time forwnr'd question nnd

niitonoinioiecoiistitution of tho kingdom
of the ancient Magyars had been organ
ized by them. Had they not been ar
rested it would shortly have broken out,
aud Hungary would havo reconquered
its independence. Sandoif claimed to
lio the chief of the conspiracy, and in
sisted that his fellow prisoners were
merely his agents. But Zathmar and
Bathory protested against this conten
tion, and claimed tho honor of haviug
been his accomplices and desired to
share his fate.

Three heads only, for Sandorf then
set himself to exculpating Sarcany, -A
young clerk employed in Count Zath
mars house on tho reeoinnieudation of
Silas Toronthal.
Sarcany could not confirm what San
dorf stated. Ho know nothing of thu
conspiracy. Ho had been greatly sur-
nsod to learn that m this timet housd

gainst the safety of the State. If ho
had mado no protest when ho was nr.

hat it was all about.
Neither Count Sandorf nor Sarcany
ad any difficulty in proving this mid
it is probable that tho Court had already
made up his mind iu the matter. At
tho suggestion of tho Judge Advocate

and there ubondoncd.
By two o'clock in the afternoon tho
pleadings were all over, and the sentence

treason against the Stato and sentenced
to death.
The prisoners wero to be shot in the
courtyard of the castle.
Tho execution was to tnko place with

kept in custody un til the closing of the
jail books, which would not tako place
until after tho execution of the sentence.

lue prisoners wcro than removed.
Sarcany was takou back to tho cell he
occupied at the bottom of an clliptio
corridor on the second floor of tho don
jon. Sandorf and his two friends, dur
ing the last hours of lifo that romained
to them, were quartered in a large cell
on tho same level, oxactly at tho end of
tho major axis of the ellipso which this
corridor made. Tlio secret was now
known. The condemned wero to be left
together until their exeoution.
This was a consolation, even a nleasru a
for them, when they found themselves
alone nnd allowed to give way to feel
ings which they could not at first
My friends," said Sandorf, "I am
tho causa of your deaths I But I have
nothing to ask your pardou for ! Wo
worked for tho independence of Hun
gary I Our cause was just I It is our
duty to defeud her t It is an honor to
die for her !"
'Mathias," said Bathory, "we thank
you for having associated us with you in
tho patriotio work which would hava
beon the work of all your lifo"
"As wo are associated with you in
death !" added Zathmar.
Then during a momentary silence the
three gazed round the gloomy cell in
winch they were to Bpend their last
hours. A narrow window Bomo four oi
five feet high, cut through tho thick wall
of tho donjon, let in a certain amount of
light Thero wore three iron bedstead,
a few chairs, a tablo and a shelf or two,
on which were a few articles of crockery.
Zathmar and Bathory wero soon lost
in thought
Sandorf began to walk up and down
tho cell.
Zathmar was alono in tho world, had
no family ties and no near relations.
Thero was only his old servant Borik,
to mourn for him.
It was uot so with Bathory. His
death would not only prove a blow to
himself. Ho had a wifo and son whom
it would reach. That wife and child
might oveu diel And if thoy survived
him, how wero they to live? What was
to bo tho future of a penniless woman
and hor eight-year-old child? Had
Bathory possessed any property, how
much ot it would remain niter a judg'
mont which directed it to bo confiscated
and Bontouoed him to death ?
As for Sandorf, all his past lifo re
turned to Inru I His wife came to him I

years old, now left to tho caro of tho
Bteward. And thero wero his fruls

"Tho grating must havo been stolen,"
said Sandoi f.
"Stolen! nnd nnd by whom t" asked
Zathmar. "The day wo wero arrested
it wns still iu the drawer on my desk,
hence tho jiolice look it."
This was indued inexplicable. That
tho letter had been found ou tho pigeou
that it had been copied lioforo Ix-iug

here tho person to whom it was ad
dressed had been discolored nil that

looiphered without the grating by winch
it had been formed was iucoinpreheii.
"And besides," continued Sandorf,

it could not havo been read witliout
tho grating I It wns this letter which
put the polico on our traces, nnd it was
on it that tho whole ehargo was bused."

Bwerpd Bathory,

said Sandorf. "Wo have lieen betray
ed ! And if there has been a traitor not
to know"
Sandorf suddenly stopiied. Tlio nania
of Sarcany occurred to him ; but ho
abandoned the thought at onco without
caring to communicate it to his com
Far into tho night bandorf and his
companions continue their conversation
on nil that was uuiutelligblo with re
gard to theso matters.
In tho morning thoy wero awnkeued
from sound sleep by the entry of the
warder. It was tho morning of their
last day but one. The execution was
fixed to take place in twenty-four hours
from then.
Bathory asked tho warder if ho might
bo permitted to seo his family.
The warder replied that ho had no
orders on tho subject. It was not likely
that tho Government would consent
to givo tho prisoners this last con
solation, inasmuch as they had conducted
tho alVair throughout with tho greatest
secrecy, and not oven tho name of tho
fortress which served them a a prison
had been revealed.
" If we writo letters, will thoy bo for-
arded ? asked Sandorf.
I will bring you paper, pons and
ink," repliod the warder ; " and I prom
iso to givo your lotters into tho Gov
ernor's hands."
Wo nro much obliged to you," said
Sandorf. " If you do that you do all
ou can 1 How shall wo reward you ?
Your thanks nro sufficient, gentle
men," said the warder, who could not
oouoeal'his emotion.
He soon brought in tho writing mate
rials. The jirisoners spent the greater
part of the day in making their last
arrangements. Sandorf said nil that a
father's heart could prompt in his in
structions regarding his baby girl, who
would soon bo an orphan ; Bathory all
it n husband and a father could
think of iu bidding a loving farewell
to his wife mid son : Zathmar all that
nuistcr could say to an old servant
who remained his only friend.
Ji'.u during tno day, nlthough absorb
ed in their writing, how many times did
they stop to listen I How many times
did they seek to discover if somo distant
noiso wns not coming nlong the corridors
of the donjon! How many times did it
seem to them ns though the door of their
cell had opened, nnd that they were to
bo permitted ono last embrace of wifo,
son or daughter 1 That would havo
been some consolation ! But, in truth, the
pittiless order deprived them of this
last adieu and spaicd them the heart
rending scene.
The door did not open. Doubtless
neither Mmo. Bathory or her son, nor
the stownrd, Lendeck, to whose care
Sandorf's daughter had been given, knew
no more whero tho prisoners wero taken
to niter their arrest than Borik in Ins
prison at Trieste. Doubtless also, neither
of them know of tho doom in store for
the conspirators.
Thus passed the earlier hours of tho
day. Occasionally Sandsord and hi
friends would talk for a whilo. Oc
casionally they would bo silent for soma
time, and then tho wholoof their lives
would bo lived over ajain in thok mem
ories wilh nn intensity of impression
quite supernatural. It was not with tho
past as affecting tho jiast, that they
wero entirely concerned ; the recolleo-
tionssecmed nil to shape themselves with
a view to tho present. Wa it then, a
prescience of that eternity which was
about to open on them, of that incom
prehensible nnd incommensurate stato
of things which i called tho infinite ?
Bathory and uthmar abandoned
themselves without reserve to their rev
erics, but Sandorf was iniincilily domi
nated by nn idea which hadtakou posses
sion ol him. Ho could not doubt but
what there had been treachery iu this
mysterious nfl'air. For a man of hi
character to dio without punishing tho
traitor, whysoeicrhe wiii, without know
ing oeu who had betrayed him, was to
dio twico over. Who had got hold of
this mos-sago to which the police owed
tho discovery of tho conspiracy nnd llm
arrest of tho couspirators? Who had
read it, who had given it up, who had
sold it, perhaps? PoiioVrin over this
insolublo problem, bn il a t s excited
