Sevrance quietly called my attention to

Our eyes met, and I
fell, I drow a long and deep breath ; tho
moment to which I had been looking for
ward for two years was near nt hand ; I
confidently expected to visit that box during
But, as Sevrnnco nnd I rose nnd fought
our way out, I happened ngaln to glance
upward. Sho had turned nnd wns looking
straight toward us.
Our eyes met, and I stopped dead In tho
nl.sle. Vaguely I was aware that Sovranco
was tugging at my arm and counseling mo
not to bo nn abandoned fool, warning me
thnt every one was remarking my emotion.
Hut I had caught tho Hash of welcome
In her oyes an Incredulous light of sur
prise nnd pleasure. Sho nodded, nnd I
knew that she had not forgotten me.
At that Instant all of this happened
more swiftly than I can tell it a man
entered tho box. The light fell upon his
dark. Immobile features; and I knew
Captain von Ilolzborn. He was. of course
In full ovenlng dress, nnd I put my teeth
together, realizing the magnltuda of my
undertaking, slnco I proposed to win the
woman's heart from this man of splendid
gifts. Ho was far too good looking for
my penco of mind.
Von Ilolzborn went forward, his lips
moving. Julia turned, with a quickly re
pressed start of surprise. Almost Im
mediately she rose, gathering up her wraps,
of which tho rrusslan nt onco relieved her.
Another occupant of the box. whom I had
scarcely noticed. alno arose; thero Was an
nlr of unexpected departuro nbout tho party.
Sevrnnce hurried me up tho aisle. In tho
promenado ho was for taking me to tnsk
for making an exhibition of myself, but I
cut him off with a hurried explanation, tho
gist of which was that Lady Herbert was
leaving, nnd thnt I had had no word with
Sevrnnce and I stood helpless, cut oft by
a stream of peoplo surging out Into the
lobby. As soon ns It was possible we
pushed through and gained tho Bldrwnlk.
whero I had Insanely hoped we would find
them awaiting us. Hut wo wero Just In
time to hear tho slnm nt tholr carriage
door and to see tho vehicle disappear Into
I broke down and Indulged In profanity.
Sevrance stooil asldo and mocked mo.
"There's plenty of time." lie comforted
me. "Very likely they had a late t image
mont a reception or n dance."
nut In my heart I knew that ho was
wrong that If not my own appearance on
the scene, then something of greater mo
ment was to bo held accountable for that
sudden and evidently unexpected departuro
from tho theater.
Over this thought, thoroughly convinced
of Ua truth. I gloomed for the rest of the
ovenlng; Se ranee exerted nlmself In vain
to rouse mo. Nor did I find any relief
sae In sleep until the following morning
when Seranco. looking over his mall nt
he breakfast table, tossed mo a square,
white envelope, addressed to me In his care.
In a hand that I knew only too well.
It was such a letter as I might have
expected a note, all too brief, charming
and tersely pertinent:
Dear Mr. Traill I am so sorry I missed
sneaking to you last night, and I am nil
S to have a good. Ions talk with you
Won't you come to tea this afternoon? Mrs
Jdorchoster and 1 will be at homo only to
you and Sir. Sevrance.
I looked up to find Sevrance's eye upon
m"Who Is Mrs. Morchester?" I Inquired,
with deceptive nochalance.
"I,ady Herbert's companion," he re
turned ; "you saw them together last night."
We are asked to call this afternoon
for ten." ,,
".Vow will you believe roe?'
"I'm not satlstled I won't bo till I see
her face to face."
A cab whirled us to that houso from
which D Netze had staggered with the
support of his would-he assassins the
house of my boioved. that I had so nearly
entered the night before the last. Sevrance
and I together mounted the steps, and con
fronted the gorgeous llunky from whose
glare 1 had Mod bo precipitately.
To this day I believe the fellow recog

business. He recalled our cards with a
supercilious air, which would have ben

flxedly and disapprovingly at me with his
fishy eyes. "1 " at "ome."

In my disappointment and chagrin I
"She will return whs?"

stiffly looking straight through rae, "when

Sovrance attempted to comfort me
throughout that gloomy homeward ride.
-It is Inexplicable." he admitted, "just
now But watt There wilt be an explana

Is too late." I prophesied. "Von Holztmra

When wo had reached Sovrance's rooms
In Lord's Chambers wo found news of a

Ho bent over tho study tabic, sorting the
pieces out under the glow of tho student's

shoulder In a fever of excitement.
It was a tedious task. That double sheet
of noto pnper had been torn Inflnltcslmally

qulto blank; Indeed, tho majority were so.
Many simply would not fit In nnd all such

But In tho end, after a half hour's hard
and exasperatlngly slow work, wo were
able, with some difficulty, to make out tho

hurriedly across tho paper.
I threw myself, bewildered and dis

faced me, his calm a trlflo less assured than
was his wont.
"Good Lord, my dear boy I" ho exclaimed
breathlessly. "What a an enigma I"
"Enigma!" I cried angrily. "Enigma be
