"I am suro that Lady Herbert could not
have chosen a moro accomplished dlplo

Ho had tho graco not to show his nn
noynnce. Indeed, bo bowed slightly, by
way of thanks for this double-edged com
pliment. "I nm, then, Instructed to nppronch you
with nn apology," ho went on, mnlntalnlng
his nlr ot courteous banter. "Lnrty Her
bert has tried twice today to get Into com
munication with you, but "
Ills eyes were like a basilisk's pitiless ;
I believe I endured their searching scrutiny
"Indeed T-' paid I politely.
"Both by letter and by telephone," ho
"Why, that Is odd !" ho parried.
"You received tho note, of course?"

"Just so," he said slowly, "I could break you in two, with my bare hands,
eye, shaking my head. "Unless," I nunll
fled, "a noto may have coma In my absence
and Clrady havo forgotton. I must ask
"Tho telephone, then?"
"At what hour?"
He named, with passable exactness, tho
tlmo when Lady Herbert had telephoned
"Wo wero all at homo nt that hour," I
said, "but I am Euro that tho bell did
This was, of course, a full-winged Ho;
but I consoled myself with tho thought that
I was unlikely to bo detected In It. It
would bo a difficult thing to prove posi
tively that tho telophono had been In use
"Thero was, I bollove, some trouble,"
Holzborn lied In his turn. "Central did
not seem to be able to got the number.
But, of course, I might havo known that,
since bnd you received tho message my
errand would be superfluous."
He dropped tho nlr of gentle raillery
and became miito serious, eyeing mo with
a calculating glanco. I returned tho look
Inquiringly, and contained myself until ho
"Jlr. Traill," he said, nfter a short pauso,
"I am going to repose a confidence ln you.
Jlay I usk that you let It go no farther
than Jlr. Sevranco?"
I showed evidences of being startled.
"Is It necessary?" I protested. "It Is
"A matter of life and death," ho stated
"If you consider It safe, necessary why,
I shall not violate your confidence; that Is,
I must warn you, unless It affects the
interests of my friends."
"It docs, but in the other way; and,
Blnco you Btumbled , upon a part of the
business, Jlr. Traill, you may as well know
tno rest or it.
"I nm nil attention; you refer to Jton
sleur de Netze?"
"Exactly." He lighted his cigar with
"I may Inform you that we are great
friends, Netze and I." he continued "And
although I nm a servant of the Oerman
Kmplre, I feel It my duty to be of what
assistance I may, as a stanch friend, to
Monsler de Netze. It is true, ho serves
another country, but "
"Now his life Is In danger grave dan
ger. Ho was all but assassinated, ns you
know. He Is under constant surveillance
hy the assaeslns; they may. at any mo
ment, accomplish their design. They aro
determined, cruel, merciless. Unless he can
be convoyed out of England, and to a place
wherein he may remain In hiding for a
time he Is as good as dead at this mo

"I havo been put to It to find a way to

Lady Herbert has a yacht a Bteam vessel,
I believe the Myosotii, at Portsmouth. She
has been kind enough to offer us tho use
of this yacht. It is ready to go Into com
mission at an Instant's notice, and and wo
sail tomorrow morning."
He stopped, noting the effect upon me.
I am afraid that I seemed unimpressed.
Indeed, I did not believe the man, and I
failed to divine whither his falsehood
"Lady Herbert and Mrs. Morchester are
already on their way to Portsmouth." he
went on. "Netze and I" he smiled depre
catlngly "will follow by another route,
and, to tell the melodramatic truth. In dis
guise." "I can appreciate the advisability," Bald
"And that," he concluded with an air of
relief. "Is why Lady Herbert was unable to
receive you at te this afternoon.",
"Oh." I protested. "I should not for an
Instant consider myself slighted, under the
Circumstances. I am cot. Indeed, of sum
det importance "
yort.indfrf.tlmt?i ygagyahie, a.i trtdy
friend of my fiancee," he explained ; "Lady
Herbert Julia, If I may call her so, to you
is moro than anxious to see you, to renew
old associations, Jlr. Traill. Sho would not
havo you consider her vvan'Ing In courtesy
for n moment."
"I hold mvselt honored." I said stiffly.
"Seriously, 1 nm distressed to tMnk that
you thought it a matter of such Importance
thnt you left Jtonsleur do Netze mVguarded
oven for nn instant, to offer me this ex
planation which wns not nt all essential,
I nsuro you. Besides, I shall have the
honor of seeing Lady Herbert herself within
n day or two, I presume?"
Ho possessed nn admirable control. I
prided myself that I had touched him twice,
nnd smartly, pricked twlco through the tis
sue of falsehood with which ho nought to
bewilder tno Hut bo had not shown a sign
of dlsenmllture To the contrary, he was
ready with a smile, as ho rose, evidently to
tnko his departure.
"Mv friend Is In good hands for tho time
being," he countered. "And tho matter was
not to bo passed over lightly In our opinion
Julia's nnd mine." And there ho touched
me neatly t "Lady Herbert I regret to
disappoint you will not return for several
weeks. She accompanies us "
For n moment ho had managed to hood
wink me, for a moment to delude mo Into
believing his absurd yarn! and now, when
1 considered that ho was proposing to tnko
a young, beautiful, nnd Ronsltlvo woman
Into such dangers ns dogging the footsteps
of a IlUsBian spy I shuddered and lost
completo control of my temper. I know
that I Hushed angrily under his superior,
German, Intensely Impertinent stare.
"Lady Herbert," 1 said, "Is, of course, her
own mistress: but I confess I cannot com
prehend with what motive you exposo her to
tho perils of your undertaking."
Iln looked mo over with n smllo ot faint.
Indulgent nmuscment that set my blood
"It Is hard, sometimes, to comprehend.
Lnily Herbert serves hh n shield, Jlr. Trnll.

He took up bis bat nnd ndjustcd It caio
fully, In silence, stnrlng at mo with that
exasperating nnd cssontlally Prussian Insol
ence. "Lady Ilerbett." ho said, nt length, with
biting emphasis, "Is not nccountnblo to you,
Jlr. Traill, for her nctlons. Nor, may I
venturo to suggest, nm I."
By nn effort I managed to approximate
"Assuredly not at present." I conceded
steadily; "but you are to understand, Cap
tain von Holzborn, thnt If ono lmlr of Lady
Herbort's heHd Is harmed through this ven
turo of yours, you will bo held accountable
by nnd to mo."
"On whnt grounds?" ho suggested mildly.
Ills words, his manner, should have
crushed mo; they succeeded only in making
mo tho moro angry.
"On grounds of my own nssumptlon, If on
no other." I retorted. "Wo Americans are

no harm In forcing tho Issue between this
Prussian mercenary and myself. In a
calmer moment, perhaps, I should have
spoken differently ; I can't say now. But nt
tho time I was quite rendy to show him my
hand tho hand of un open f nemy.
Ho received tho epithets without flinch

I fancied that his eyes grew yet more Im
penetrable and opaque; my furious glances

him ; not until tho operation was concluded
did he speak. Then;
"So that Is tho way you feel about It,
eh?" said he. "Jlr. Traill, permit me to
assure you that, at another time, when I
nm not bound to more serious Usues, I .shall
take great pleasure in forcing you to retract
those words. In tho meantime "
"I nm at your service whenever you are
disengaged," I said coldly.
"In the meantime," he repeated, stooping
nnd taking up his stick. For an instant I
fancied that he thought to strlko me ; It vvaB
a large and heavy cane, of tough wood.
Abruptly, however, he clasped It with both
hands, about six Inches apart, near Its mid

upon tho stick with either hand ; there was
a sharp crack, and It splintered and broke.

You must bear In mind that I am a strong

advlso you to keep out of my path ; it Is not
to be crossed with Impunity by you"
I laughed In his face. "That mountebank
trick has been worn threadbare, on the
stage and In novels," I told him fimusedly.
"Let me show you."
Fortunately I am not undeveloped In a
muscular way; I used to hold a record or
two tor one thing nnd another in athletics
before a younger generation wrested those
trophies from me.
I picked up the two sticks, put them to
gether, broke them, and offered him the
fragments. "Tour cane, sir," said I with
mock respect. "And a good evening."
He waited perhaps half a minute, his
face livid the first Indication of human
emotion I had ever noted n the man ; then
In alienee he brushed past me and was
gone, tramping heavily down the staircase
and across the courtyard.

A dissolute, Inconsiderate first husband

A very beautiful piece of character Btudy
of the Irish peasant typo Is the four-act
tragedy, "John Ferguson" (JIncmlllan Com
pany. Now York), by St. John O. Ervlne.
Tho play Is a tragedy with not much relief
from tho atmosphcro of mlsfortuno from
beginning to end. But Ervlno has tho fac
ulty of restraint under perfect command.
His characters aro tha enduring north ot
Ireland peasants. They endure nnd suffer
Just as they make merry with but little
outward sign of what rages within them.
There Is a flno depth about Ervlno's char
acterization of tho Irish peasantry. Ho por
trays beautifully the tides and passions
evoked by the many traglo events which
center nround a religious invalid, John Fer
guson, who for only ono moment loses his
firm stand on tho rock of salvation. Every
bit of description of tho typos, from the
half-witted beggar to the selfish mother
who to save her household wants her daugh

dono with tenderness and beauty.
