CHAPTER' III. THE MAN WHO
The man-hunter Is not confined to the
domain of romance. Under the mnsk
of calmness which my adversary wore
I oould detect the eagerness and pas
sion of pursuit. He 'had begun the
chase perhaps with the cold sense of
duty, or under the spur of the large re
ward upon the heel of his necessity.
But onoe upon the soent a new nrdor
possessed him. He Had presseu on
without rest; so much I could read In
Ms lean face. And at that moment
when the first flush of triumph was on
him, I must win htm to dishonor. For
I had resolved to bribe him If Vt were
possible: If not, I mignit uo wuir.

Vor It won't do."
Th reward." I saM. "Is less than
$10,000. I will give you $20,000, cash in
hand, this micht."
He passed his hand1 over his fore
head as If dazed. I saw that I was ap-
npniine- to one who loved money, and
T took conrflire.
"Quick!" I cried, "decide. Here Is
the cash. It will make you comforta
ble for many a day and no one n?ed
know. Tell your superior that these
vti1en3 were not here. Who knows

I am pressed for money. Who knows
whether the reward will ever be paid?
Give me thirty thousand
"No, thirty. I'll take no less. Tou
have as much there. Speak quick before
I am an honest man again.'
"Done! Here is the money."
I counted it out to him with trembling
hands. He put it into his pocket. His
ace became ghastly pale and his lips
I had never seen a man sell himself
before. The bargaining had been dif
ferent from what I would have ex
pected: but then the man was clearly
exceptional. The quick change In his
mental attitude and the readiness of
decision on so grave a topic were doubt
loss part of Ms nature, and suited to
his profession. Yet I would have ex
pected a man with so resolute a face to
make a longer fight against corruption.
"Now to destroy them!" I replied.
"We must have the hottest Are that the
stove can stand."
"But we can wait?"
His voice trembled. The courage had
gone out of him: tt had fled with his
honor as I marked even in that mo
ment of excitement.
"Some one might come," he went on
huskily. "Remember I am deeper in it
now than you are. Neither of us must
be found here with this stuff in sight.
Certainly not I. It Dane should
"Of course It only Dane comes we
are safe. We must risk tha others.
It's better than carrying the bundle
throug-h the streets."
While speaking I was piling the fuel
of vhlob, fotunately, .there was a good
supply Into tie stove. A moment and
the flame leaped up. The draught was
magnificent. In ten minutes the stove
was ready for Kohnfeld's coat. The
blood-stained garment, torn Into shreds
smoldered and fought the flame, but
vainly. The buttons were of wood,
covered with cloth. There, was noth
ing iha.6 could not be reduced to ashes.
Indeed, I njarveld that it had not
been destroyed long before. But blood
guiltiness muddles the wits.
The shoe with its blood stain was)
worse fuel (than the coat,- but by the
tlmeet reached the Are there was such
a beat as no leather could resist. That
witness of the crime passed into ashes.
There was IHtle else but the bonds. I
was about to put them into the fire,
but first I noticed the edges which had
been deftly cleansed of blood, though
not without leaving a trace of the mur
"Stop!" cried" tha detective. "We
must not burn those. They should be

"True; I will attend to that. Or, on
second thought. It Is better you should
do It, That will seem natural; and If
you ar true to your bargain to me, you
will invent a story which will help
clear Dane." j
"He will not be convicted," was the
reply. "I know the evidence. With
out my testimony regarding the find
ing of these things here, he will es
cape.'" "And that testimony you have sold
to me?" - 1
"Now for the knife," said I. "Would
It not be well to wrench oft the handle,
which Is of wood, amd burn it?"'
"A good idea."
He drew the knife from tinder his
coat. I split the handle with a blow,
and it fell from the blade.
At that moment we heard a sound at
the door. The handle was softly turned.
Then came tlhe shock of a strong shoul
der against the wood, and I heard a

a flash had fitted them together, to see
If I had all. A pieces was missing. It
would be equal to all the other evi
dence! I groped upon the floor. The perspira
tion fell from my forehead like rain.
The room, under the Influence of that
roaring Are, was like an oven;and ex
citement blazed in me as1 hotly. '
I heard the door strain, under steady
and strong pressure. I turned to my
companion. Despite the heat his face
was like white paper. - "
"Is there any way out of here?" I
"The window!" he replied. "Tou must
stay here, otherwise we shall both be
followed and . overtaken. Remember

pushed It open cautiously and stepped
out. The rough stones gave him foot
ing; he made his way rapidly down
ward and sidelong.
After one moment's pause at the win
dow to feel the cool air on my face, I
hurried to the door, drew the bolt, and
put my trembling hand upon the knob.
The door was opened by pressure from
without. I nearly died of relief at sight
of Dane, alone.
"What are you doing here?" he cried.
"I knew It was you. Did you not hear
me call your name?"
I was too deeply agitated to speak, I
could only take his hand, while tears
rolled down my cheeks.
"What tomfoolery Is this?" he cried,
but not unkindly. "Why have you built

At that moment there was a rap nt
the door. iBefore I could stay him,
Dane opened It. Ills action seemed
purely mechanical; 'he was like an
image endowed with motion,
A uniformed officer of police entered.
"We've got him!" he cried.
And in tlhat Instant It flashed across
me that the fragments of the knife han
dle were still where they had fallen!
Dane was lost unless I could destroy
I sprang forward, but the officer ad
vancing, Interposed his bulky body
without seeming to wish to do so. I
dared not force my way by him. I
waited, grief-stricken, for the arrival
of the men to whom he had addressed
his cry of triumph. No one came.
There was no sound of men in the cor
"So you've got him, eh?" he said,
"Where is he?"
"In the Janitor's room," replied the
officer. "We found him crouching
against the side wall of the building

rection of the street.
"Ha seems to have had a bad fall,"
he continued. "I should say he must

The officer went out. Dans turned to
"Now, In the name of heaven tell me
what you've done," he cried.
I stammered out my story.
He seized me by the shoulder and
held me face to face with him.
"Wake up!" he exclaimed. "Get your
wits together. You've had this thing
oy tne wrong end. I'm a detective. I've
been watching this man, called Erwln

"Laboriously I gathered them. The

medicine I can sleep anywhere ; I am perfectly
well. I would not be placed in my former con

' "You" know" the rest. Erwln must'
have been dazed when you appeared.
It's lucky for you that he was. But hla
shrewdness, which Is more than mortal,
enabled him to taks advantage of your
error In supposing blm to bt a deteo
tlve. Ho left this room with $30,000 and
the bonds; and If hu'd got away heaven
only knows when we'd have caught
him. You'd have been an accessory

but I guess we can get you out of It all
right. You may have to do a little lying
to get your money back; for Instance
you might say he found you here, and
bound, gagged and fdbbed you, We'll
see about that,
"Now a word more to post you about
the case: ' I was put on it because I
knew Kohnfeld. I had dealings with
the old villain to my. cost. . Indeed, I
owed him a good deal of money which,
by the way, I shall have to pay mighty
Boon out of my" snore of the reward.
"Erwln, by the wny, is a very high
class crook. I feel considerable satis
faction In beating Mm. About the time
when you first found mo hero the case
was looking all wrong and I was very
blue, as you doubtless noticed. That
accounts for some peculiarities of mj
manner which helped to mislead you.
Well, I forgive you; yes, and thank
you, too, most heartily. To pass now
from myself to the other pcrsn who has
been under suspicion I will tell you that
Erwln had had dealings with Kohnfeld
and the old 'fence' had advanced him
money. Ho was forcing pnyment by
means of documentary evidence of Er
wln's many crimes; and he lost his life
and the documents at the same time."
"Why didn't Erwln burn these things
In his room?" I asked,
"He hudn't any stove," replied Dane.
"There's only a grate. It was eafer
to hide them. Come, let's go and see

the whole affair.
Dane and I are closer friends than
ever. I know ho thinks less than no
thing of my Intellectual capacity, at
least as applied to matters In his chosen
field, but thnt need not affect his regard
for me. Was not our old friend Wamba
rewarded for his devotion? And he was

Lyric Uleo Club's Concert.
The Scranton United Choral society,
numbering 200 of our city's best sing
ers, under the directorship of John T.
Watkins, will repeat their prize cho
ruses at Laurel Hill park this evening.
This Is being done to gratify the wishes
of hundreds of ithose who could not at
tend the exercises of the magnificent
musical festival recently held at Wilkes
Barre, where our singers achieved such
unprecedented glory over their unfor
tunate rivals of Wllkes-Barre.
Beethoven's "Gloria," with Its great
sublimity and sacredness, Is the most
majestic mass that was ever written by
any of the Inspired masters. This was
one of the chief competitive selections
of the festival, and the three dlstln-
gulshed adjudicators, Mr. Krleblel, mu
sical critic of the New York Tribune;
Mr. Henderson, of the New York Times,
and Mr. Huss, a musical composer of
distinction and a great vocal teacher,
were unanimous In their award, declar
ing tho Scranton singers far superior
In richness of voices. Interpretation,
shading, articulation and the other mu
sical attributes necessary to give a
worthy performance of such a majestic
composition. The distinguished gentle-
men never contemplated Buch robust
and majestilo performances from a pro-
vlnclal choir, and Air. Krleblel, In a
scholarly adjudication, was enthusias
tic In -his remarks when dilating upon
the high merits and the grandeur of the
Interpretation of Mr. Watkins' choir.
He stated that after their perform
ance on the previous day, while
they still adhered to the same method
of adjudicating, yet they had placed
the standard at a much higher grade,
and still one of tho choruses (the Scran
ton choir), had even gone beyond that
point. He further stated Unit It was a
perfect rendition by a chorus of mag
nificent voices. He warmly congratu
lated Mr. Watkins qn his excellent
wurk. He spoke In the same manner
of the rendition of "Solrl, Buy," a dif
ficult selection from McKenzle's dra
matic opera, "Columba." ,
The cholr will be assisted by the
prize soloists and Mrs. Heckel's Charm
ing female party and the. Druid male
party. If tho weather Is propitious this
evening thousands will avail themselves
of the opportunity of hearing one of the
grandest choruses ever organized.

The chorus will be augmented by a
large orchestra. Baife's "Bohemian
Girl" will be the opening production,
on Monday evening. This will be fol
lowed by the well-known popular light
operas, Including several new selections
that have not been heard In Scranton
heretofore. It Is possible that a large
number of Scranton music lovers will
avail themselves of Uie opportunity to
listen to comic opera at the popular
prices at Laurel Hill.
Among tne pleasurable musical events
of the coming week will be the concert
given by the Lyric Glee club at Young
Men's Christian association hall on
Thursday evening. The Lyric Glee club
is a male party, Including the best voices
in the city, and Is under the direction
of T. J. Davles, Mub. Bac. Wherever
the club has been heard audiences have

programme presented will be prepared
with special care and will probably
contain many original numbers, afford

II II II
Victor Herbert, the celebrated band
master and 'cellolst, Is at present on
gaged wrltlg music for a new comic
opera called the "Wizard of the Nile,"
which will be produced by Frank Dan
iels. Harry B. Smith Was written the
libretto. In conversation with friends
in this city Conductor Herbert stated
that many of the lyrics In De Koven and
Smith's operas were written to fit mu
sical themes that had been previously
created by De Koven. Mr. Herbert,
however, gives his opinion that this is
not the proper method. The words of
a song, 'he states, will often furnish
Inspiration for the composer, and should
always be written first. The composer
can take liberties with the poetry by
repeating words or lines In order to
secure the best mimical effects, but
when the librettist attempts to lit words
to trills, staccatto passages, or refrains,
tho nppearance of the poetry In print
is sometimes ptartllng. In "Prince An
anias," Mr. Herbert's most successful
opera, only one song Is Introduced
Where words were written to music.
"Prince Ananias," by the way, has
received the most favorable criticism of
any opera ever written In this country.
The work Is on the repertoire of the
Bostonlons, and will probably be heard
In Scranton next season. -

Look out and up where swallow flies
A Joyous spirit through the skies;
The spring has come awake, arise!
Hclgh-ho! the waking of the buds.

The glossy silken coats ye wear,
ThaV we may see your faces fair;
Lay, sweets, your tender blossoms
And fragrance all the laughing air,
Heigh-ho! the bursting of the buds.
Give, virgin (lowers,

Your kisses to the bee that seeks;
Show h'.m your hearts, your velvet
And prize the love he truly speaks,
Helgh-ho! the loving of the bee.
Live, lovely flowors,
If but a day! Remember well
When ye are gone to dust to dwell;
Each precious kiss the bee doth tell
And sip again In his gold cell.
Helgh-ho the honey of the bee.

Of life or love or roundelay, '
