Sarcany thought he had gone mad. "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 " But tho polico havo not got them t" "That is my business." " You will act with great Mvreey ? " " That is my busine.ss." 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?" "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 mu.st 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 part so will, he termed mi imbued with liberal ideu, ami had taken so littlo pains to hido tho iminciblo repulsion ho mid he felt for the (ieimans, that j.vndorf thought of giving him n post later on, when tho rMng should havo 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 him. Sarcany nenred his triumph. It was mi tho llth of Jiinii that Count Siudorf had agreed with his friends to give the signal, und tho fcth had come. Hut tho informer bail been nt wont In tho eM'Uilig. nbont eight o'clock, tho polico Mtddouly entered Zathmar's house. Resistance wns impossible. Count Sandorf, Count Zathmar, pro fessor Rathory, Sammy himself, who madono piotett, uudRorik weru secretly arrested. On.VI'TRU Vll ' Till! TttlAfc. Ihtrin. which beeamo part of Austria' 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 uf Trieste to tho (lulf of Quarneio j and ulong .the coast line nro several haibors. Among others, almost nt tho extreme southern point, is Pola, which thelloveiunieut was then forming into a dockyard ami ui'soual of iho llrst liuik. The pi'oviuus m hm especially on its western oo ist i st.U Italian, nnd even Venetian in its customs and language.

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 lo.id 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 public. Alxmt two o'clock in tho morning they again changed horses. As at the first change, the halt did not last tho minutes. 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 ness. 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 29, 1886. 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 suspicion. 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 fore such a court never tako long, the trial is conducted very quickly, and thero is no delay in the execution of the sentence. 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 till then hod lieeu well done, AU that 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 THE COLUMBIAN, VOL. XX.NO fi COLUMBIA DKMOCItAT, VOL. XtlX, NO 48 companions. Then the fac-sitnile of the nies'ii.T' handed over tothe police wn produced wul tho nectifod were asked if thev re mcmbereilieeeiving the original, They replied that it win the duty of tho prose cution to prove that they received it. At this reply tho grating which hud been found iu Zathmar's desk was pro duced. Sail lor f nnd his companions could not deny that the grating had been in their possession. They did not try to. T such material oWdeiiep there was no IC ply. Tho application of thogmting per 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 answer passed rapidly mid clearly told the story. Sandorf denied nothing, lie spoke on lielmlf of his two friends. A move ment intended to bring nbont thosopem. tion of Hungary from Austria nnd the 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. When tho 1'resident iiitcrrocated tho prisoners ns to their dealings witii others icy refused to reply. .Not a uamo was given. "ion havo now thieo heads," said niidorf, " and that must bo enough fos on. 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 on tho Acquedotto a plot wns in progres-1 gainst the safety of the State. If ho had mado no protest when ho was nr. ;sted it was lecause ho had no idea 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 io ehargo against barcauy was then and there ubondoncd. By two o'clock in the afternoon tho pleadings were all over, and the sentence as given without oven an adjournment. uouut jUatlnas isamtorf, Count Ladis- as Zathmar anil I"rofes3or Stephen Bathory were found guilty of high 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 in forty-eight hours. Sarcany was to be kept in custody un til the closing of the jail books, which would not tako place until after tho execution of the sentence. By the same judgment all theuossos- Bions of tho prisoners were confiscated. lue prisoners wcro than removed. CHAPTER VIIX ATTUR TOE SENTENCE. 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 restrain. 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 His littlo daughter came a child ot two years old, now left to tho caro of tho Bteward. And thero wero his fruls whom he had led to ruin l He i ed himself if he had dono well, if he had uot gone farther than his duty toward his country required ? Woul I thnt tho punishment had fallen ou him alone, and not upou those that wero innoocut 1 JNol no! 1 hnoonlydonemy duty 1 ho said to himself, "My country beforo all, and above all! t flvo o'clock a warder entered tho cell, placed the dinner on tho tablo, ami went out again without baying a worn Sandorf would have liked tu know iu what fortress ho was kept a prisonor. but ab the l'ruMilent ot the court-martin had not thought tit to answer the qucs' turn it was qui i certain that tho warder would not give the information. The prisoners hardly touched the din ncr which had been prepared for them. I hey liasscd the rest of tho day talUui; nu various matters, iu tho how that their abortive mowinent would ono day be resumed. Very often they returned to tho incidents ol the trial. " Wo now know," said Zathmar, " why wo havo been nnebted, and how tho police riiHcov led us from that letter whiell thev eiune norms." "Yen, Imdislas," Miid Sandorf, "but into whose hand did that message, which was ono nf the last wo received, at tiibt fall, and who copied it ?" 1 9 w $ 73 1 S3 1 fiO 8 l aw 75 !M JW 3 S3 4 60 1 M i r.o S S3 3 60 4 CO B tO 5M t M 4 no 6 00 7 00 ,im r, m lr 3 on 4 to 7 0 4 75 7 M 13 M BEO 10 00 1 00 1 Inch " 3 " 4 11 Viol 8 00 13 (0 1 00 9 BO 1 1 60 SB 00 8 on COl 6 50 T 00 H 00 11 no 1700 CO to 40 10 column 8 00 13 00 )B 00 S3 00 SO 00 40 00 N 01 Yearly advertisements payable quarterly.

' "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 ut to its destination ; that tlio house here tho person to whom it was ad dressed had been discolored nil that could bo explained. But that the crypt ographic despatch could halo been looiphered without the grating by winch it had been formed was iucoinpreheii. siblo. "And besides," continued Sandorf, we know that tho letter was read, and 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." It matters ery little, after all," an- Bwerpd Bathory, On the contrary, it does matter. 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 panions. 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 brain beeamo a prey to a sort of foter. Mil while lus Ineuils wioto on or re mained silent and motionless, he Btroda uneasy nnd agitated, pacing tho lloor ot his cell liko u wild beast shut up iu u cage. A phenomeon strange but not unin telligible in accordance with ncousticnl law came nt last to hi aid aud whisper ed the secret ho had despaired of dis coloring. Several times ho had stopped short a ho turned attho angle which thodividiug; wall of tho cell mado with tho main wall of tho corridor, on to which tho different cells opened. Iu this anglo, just whero tho door was hinged, ho seemed to hear a murmur of vo cen, distant aud hardly recognizable. At first ho paid no atten tion to this, but suddenly a nanio wns pronounced his owu and he listened intently. At' once ho detected nn ac oustical phenomenon, such as is observ able iu tho interiors of gallories nuu domes or under vaults of ellipsoidal form. Tho voico traveling from one point of the ellipse, nfter following tho contour of tho walls without being per eeptiblo nt any interim dlato point, h jilaiuly heard at tho other focus. Such is thu phenomenon met with in tho crypts of the Pantheon in Pari., in tho intorior of tho dome of St. lVter's at Rome, and in thu whispering gallery at St. Paul's in Loudon. Tlio faiutest word utlerod at one focus of thosoourvos is distinotly hoard ut tho focus opposite, , Thero could bo no doubt that thu two or jnoro pi-sous who wero talking either iu tlio eoiridoror in a cell situated al tho end of tho diameter, the vooal point of which wa eloso to tho door of tho cell occupied by Sandiirf, By a sign he called hta oomrunions to him. Tho three stood listening.
