OF NIGHT PAGEANT

Ambulance Hospital Benefit
SUMMER residents at Bar Harbor are
still talking of the really lovely night
pageant held on the lawn of the Swim
ming Club thero THursday evening. It
as an evening of dancea, fittingly termed
Terpsichore" by John Murray Anderson,
rho devised and Btaged It under tho d.
rectlon of Mrs. William Lawrence Green,
and represented tho progress of the dance
through four ages. Tho prologue, which
eras written by John Kendrlck Bangs,
ivas read by Enid Howland, and then fol
lowed the dancea of nntlqulty, Jlrst tho
Egyptian and then, the Grecian. The role
cf Torpslchore wos taken by Constanco
Blnneyi she, you will remember, danced
jn this city nt several charitable per
formances during last season. She h a
jileco of Mrs. Georgo Dunning, who, In
spits of the heat, hns been working away
for the BUffrogo cause during tho Bum
rner. The first danco of tho Renaissance was
the gavotte, executed gracefully by
I'ranccs and I-ota Sullivan, and this was
followed by a Minuet tie la Coeur, In
which Edith Grade. Charlotto Delalleld,
Sylvia Van Rensselaer and Helen Smith
Kntherlno Forco, Mrs. Dick's Bister,
and Georgia Schotlcld appeared In tho
nineteenth century group. Tho lattor
commanded ono of tho companies at tho
National Service School for Women, held
'at Chevy Chaso In May. I uso tho word
commanded advisedly, for ono heard many
rumors of her Spartan methods while
captain of Company C. It was told an
a good one on her that when ono of tho
rookies, having sprained her ankle, re
ported tho fact to her youthful captain,
the latter, tired of hearing about sprained
ankles so closo to exhibition day, was
heard to murmur "Darn" under her
breath. I do not know whether tho un
fortunato rooklo had her town leave
taken nwny or was summarily dismissed.

CHAPTIlIt XIV (Continued).
DE NETZE approaching at that moment,
tho Burgeon reopened his caso of In
struments with professional nlncrlty
"Your own wound, sir?" ho suggested.
"Nothing of consequence." asserted tho
Russian. "The man struck wildly, nnd tho
knife penetrated tho lleshy part of my
shoulder. I will bandage It myself nt a

"Wo will go on up to tho hall now, If

Mr. Sovrance? Grady might help Fritz back

explained, "that It would bo too dangerous

Thero was, of course, no question ns to
that. In tho mcnntlmo. It was decided Bho

say tho least, Inadvisable, as well as In
human, I schooled myself to a silent
Ciipturo nnd Kscnpe.
THERE was a little bustlo and confusion ;
and then my Heart's Derlrc, with her
party, moved away and was swallowed up
In tho shadows of tho woodland. Chine
returned to his patient, whom Captain Keen
had never left. Tho seamen from the
Myosotii huddled together at a distance,
gossiping In undertones.
After a while Keen nrose and issued a
succession of orders, which they sprang
with alacrity to obey, seizing tho bodies
of the dead men nnd carrying them quickly
down the stairs to the beach below. De
Netzo explained this matter qulto plausibly.
It was ndvlsablc, he said, that tho affair
should bo kept as quiet as possible It
wos for that reason alone, for Instance
that her ladyship had given orders that no
moio thin three trusted servants of tho
family should be employed about Saltacres
Hall during this clandestine visit. .
"I am desolated," said the Russian, "to
think that I Bhould bo the cause of such
troublo to my most kind friends. It Is
useless to disguise the fact that all this was
arranged on my account nlono ; we could
Imagine no more safe hiding placo In all
England than this same Saltacres Hall.
But It seems that they tracked us oven
ftere." Ho sighed wearily. "Now, theso
canaille," he continued, Indicating the bodies
with a scornful wavo of his hand, "are to
oe carried out to sea and burled with a
weight at the feet of each. Then thero
will remain no dead men to tell tales upon
as." He laughed unpleasantly.
"What Is the motive for this perslstont

Thompson, the lodge keeper, had seen nn

a bareheaded man for Its solo passenger,
some ten minutes or so after the probable
time of the encounter on tho cliff.
It but confirmed our suspicions that one
of tho nss.isslns had made goort his escape.
Tho Russian's brow furrowed with
anxiety when I Informed him of this Inci
dent. Nevertheless, ho maintained, wo wero
assured of three or four days' respite from
further annoyance or nsrnult. It would tnko
some time, he wns confident, to assemble In
our neighborhood enough members of the
revolutionary party then In England

of time to dcvlso a way out of the diffi

chimney. I remember feeling awkward
and out of place.
After a long time the housekeeper, an
aged nnd withered body, plainly half fright
ened out of her wits, nppronched us nnd
mado her ladyship's excuses for the seem

ladyship was unnerved and almost In

Do Netze, however, had told tho Irishman
oft for sentry duty during tho night a
task which ho was to share with tho seamen
from tho Mlionoth.
A bucolic lackey lighted Sovrance and
myself to our rooms. They proved adjoin

In his hasto to answer his father's call,
Willie had not noticed that the cub was
