His own thoughts ^ ofled recurred to tbe Count and his j jewelry, but the mystery was no nearer a solution. He could not believe the Count an imposter—he carried himself , so well, and Frank Lebourgeois was the last person in tbe world to be taken in in a matter so nearly touching-his fami ]y and his family pride, not to speak of the utter improbability of tbe story. On the- other band the coincidence was striking 1 , and the Count's story did not ; sound straight. Paul detercained with ' Itr Mto by J. I 1 . ••atMB, Bwrjahn ft r, B. T. KtMUnc, W. H. Ptrter YOU HAVE PROVBD A TRUE FRIEND. himself to have another talk with Archer, but was given no opportunity-. That mysterious individual kept himself out of the way. He only encountered Archer once before the ni^ht of the ball, on the Sunday noon fnliowini; the dinner. A knowing smile pl:iyed about Archer's features and he remarked: "That conversation about jewelry at the l.cbouvyeoises last niy'ht was quite ch-vurly worked up. Did the Count look the true nobleman wearintr his ring- and lockeU 1 " And before the astonished I'mil hud a i-hanoe to reply Archer had brushed 'by him and was gone in his truly unique way. Paul was left more uncomfortable than ever. There was no doubt, that Archer felt sure of the scent and was shadowing- both the Count *nd the Le- bourg-eoises. The nig-ht of the ball came and Paul found himself, to his own surprise, at liberty to g-o to it as a g-uest. A be, having- discovered that our friend had a pretty knack at what is ¥ called in newspaper phrase "general descriptive," had assig-ued to him the opening- column of gush. "All you will have to do," as Abe put it in explaining- to Paul, "is to drop over to the Southern about half-past S and write up a half column on the decorations and their g-eneral effect. Then, when things get well under way, write a half column on the send-off, how the swells hoofed it in the first laneiers. the 'kaleidoscopic business' and that nort n 1 ' tliincr. 'I' 1 "- '•n*r>'i rv---•'•• will fit you out "with a private room to ao it in, awl yon ca.ii send over the copy by a district messenger boy. Then sling- yourself as much as 3~ou damn please, and you need not show up here ag-ain until to-morrow noon." A great thing 1 it was to be in with ArcLer. How different his position and his work since he had been taken under the wing- of that mysterious dictator of the Orb office! So Paul did as he was bid. At 8 o'clock he sauntered over to the Southern, clad in his long--neg-lected swallow-tail, and under the guidance of the Colonel, who had been added to the rnanag-iujr committee, was shown around and given a private room in which to grind out his copv. He had not paid his duty call at the Lebcwrg-eoises— he had had no chance. He had made no arrang-ements for joining- any party at the ball—he was not sure that he could appear there as a guest. He had sent off his messenger boy to the Orb and was on his way to an adjacent bar to take, a "bracer," when he suddenly felt a touch upon his shoulder— Archer's. '•Yon have a private room here?" asked Archer. "Yes," said Paul. ' "Take, me to it, then. The crisis has come." Without a word further, the two retraced their steps to the hotel corridor, mounted the grand staircase, and entered Paul's room, a large one, conveni eut. and supplied with vrritintr materials. Archer quietly shut the door and bolted it. He opened the closet door to see that it did not contain any other exit. He carefully examined a private bath room and closed the transom. He raised the window to see if there were a balcouy outside, lowered it and sprung- its catch. After a close inspection of the apartment itself to make sure that no one was concealed in it besides themselves, he led Paul over to the dressing- glass near the •window and lighted tb« j^as jet attached next it. He then took out a dispatch, which read: LoxDOX, Frida/. KEF.XE. St Louis: Arreside.Fooli«if for Graham murder. Extradition soo« possible. SIR AXTHO.XY Lrea. He next thrust in Paul's hand a pocket London guide, open at a page where Sir Anthony Lugs' name appeared as chief of the London police. "That dispatch came,'' said Archer,' 'not fifteen minutes ago. Keene has been called off on another matter. I have sent for him, but he cannot get here and secure is warrant before the ball opens, else we might arrest your Count first, We mig-ht have to nab him, as he is a desperate fellow, right in the dance." But that would spoil my plans, as I intend that the' Orb shall have the sensation all to itself to-morrow morning. Xow it would be a damn sight pleasanter for your friends the Lebourgeojses, and especially for the young lady, not to be in at the death. Keep them away from the ball if you can. It would add to the sensation to have the Count snatched by the police while he was on escort duty with his fiancee and family, but I have some regard for people's feelings if I am a hardened reporter. Don't give the snap away, but keep them out of the Count's company. We will take him into camp in the dark »s le leaves the festive scene." "But," said Paul, who was as yet too dazed to catch on and believe it all, "suppose it all prove a mistake?" "Damn it. man." exclaimed Archer, "I haven't time to make a grand jury of you. If you don't believe me you can let the Lebourgeoises see the Count's arrest with their own eyes. For two days I have had the proof in my pocket, in Keene';- looked-for letter from Scotland Ya-'d, and all we hars been waiting for was this dispatch You haven't time to read it DOW. Ever with I what you know the explanation is long. The moments press. The I«bourg;eoises are | bound to be here »arly. tor madam is | one of the. receiving patronesses. It . is now 8:30. and they are slated to be j on hand at 9:30. If you are going to | MIVC them "unnecessary mortifc'cation you've got to pick up your legs and be lively. But I will give you one point- | er. The Count is suspicious and is booked for the iirst Chicago train. , You can stop at the office on your way ' and see his name against a Pullman section. He is really going to give his valet the slip and take the Texas Sou there express. Canada is the last , place he wants to steer for. It would be easier to ;,end him back from there than from almost anywhere else this side of the water. HeTi put for Mexico. "' Jf this were indeed true, Paul was convinced. The Count was booked to give Frank Lebourgeois a dinner at the club the next evening. Paul had received an invitation. With Paul convinced there was not a moment, to be lost, he would see Frank Lebourgeois,'who must be here by this time, and leave the responsibility with him. Archer had been closely watching Paul's face, and read his decision before a word was said. "That's right, old man," he said with a cordiality he had never shown before. "Trust me. I have, can have, no object in der-eivintr /on. uy *ne way—wiia tna trn» newspaper instinct—"what do they expect of you at the office?" Paul told him. "I'll see Jennings and make that all right. Got plenty of cash? "Only a fiver." said Paul. ••"••Ven-iiers's a twenty for jou. When you make a race against time, better be well lubricated. Here's a carriage you can have," Archer added, "one I had secured for myself ahead, and which I shall not need until after the ball opens. You'll find it hard to get one to-night for love or money. Heaven Dless you and save the girl. Drive like hell:" With which queer mixture of prayer and swear Archer vanished. That's the way Paul did drive. He made the distance to the Lebourgeois mansion iu less than ten minutes, including' a stop at the ticket office, where he found, indeed, that the Count had actually booked his name for a Pullman section to Chicago. Alighting, and hastening to the door as soon as possible, he gave the lion- curved knocker a crashing double thump that brought .lules to the door in a hurry. A telegraph boy erept iu beside him (Paul had no* •otioed him standing there ia thd shadow of the deep piazza.. 1 while Jliss Lebourgeois' voice, from the head of the stairs, called out, "Is that you, Frank?" ••Xo,'mademoiselle," said Jules, "it Is Mr. Terry." "Have you any news from Frank?'' said the young lad} 7 , hurrying down, the stairs. She was indeed startlingly beautiful. as she came forward, her draperies floating around in a cloud, through her rapid motion, as if she were borne on air. her color heightened, her e5 r es flashing brilliancy from excitement, and her beautiful necklace bewitcn- ingly enclasping the whitest of -white necks. "No." returned Paul, a new difficulty confronting him, "is he not here?" Jules interrupted: "Here's a telegram. Perhaps, mademoiselle, it's Vorn 3fr. Frank." , Miss Lebourjreois hastily took and And read it. "How prtrfoKIngr TrTUafc •»ra I to do?" and she handed it to Paul. The telegram read: Train delayed. So late will dress at hotel. Meet at ball. FRANK LEBOUKGKOIS, "Mother was afraid Frank would be late." continued Miss Lebourgeois, in explanation, tc Paul. "She is one of the patronesses. So she drove on to meet Mrs. Blood, another, patroness, with whom. Count de Fooliers dines tonight, and Frank was to take me. He's so c<->eless, • He won't imd out I'm not there till at the dance lists have been filled." And the belleof the ball looked the picture of vexation. "What hotel will Frank dress at?" ifcsked Paul. "Probably the Lindell," said the *irl. That was Paul's opnortunity. He could catch Frank alone there. "Will you wait," he asked, until I can drive over to the Lindeli and bring Frank track? It can't be more than ten minutes to nine, and I think I can have him back by twenty minutes after, at the farthest. My coursers are swift." "Yes. do," said Miss Lebourgeois. And Paul retired in unceremonious haste. It was less than ten minutes after when he was following the bell-boy up w Frank's room. Miss Lebouryeoise. VTe depend on yo- nntil the doctor comes." Woman-like, Miss Lebonrg-eoise was calm, instantly. The appeal was sufficient. Jules and Paul picked up Frank and carried him within, and a messenger boy was sent for the nearest doctor. Frank in a few minutes moved. "Lou," said he, in a faint voice, "let Paul go for mother as soon as possible." "Yes, go. Mr. Terry," said Miss Lc- bourgeois. The doctor, a well-known elderly g-entleman. who chanced to be making t call in the vicinity, was ushered in and Paul went out to find if he had any carriag-e. It was there all right minus one door. The horses had started suddenly as the young men were getting- out" The door, swung open, had caught against a tree, and been broken off short. The young- men had been pitched out, Frank striking his bead ig-ainst the tree. The horses had soon been stopped. Excepting for the wrecked door, the vehicle was all right, Paul entered it once more and drove straight for the Southern,,Hotel bal> (To be Continued.) tOOK CAF.EFUU.Y. "Well, this i» a jolly g-o," said that half-dressed individual, a«, to the great peril of crumpling 1 his shirt bosom, with tba studs not yet fastened, he rushed forward to greet his friend. "Here I have been hunting you up all over the East, and came home round by that infernal Chicago, where they said you last had been heard from, only to have you stumble upon me en deshabille before I'd been in St. Louis ten minutes. Damn your solemn phiz, you know you never were so glad to see an3'body before. What the devil have you been np to? Why didn't you write once a year? Been married? What are you doing in this slow-coach town, anyhow?' 1 an<3 Frank stopped, or his breath did, short. "Go oa, as fast as you can, with your dressing, old man," said Paul, still as solemn as an owl, but with affection ift the ring- of every syllable. "I'm your sister's messenger. Your mother ba8 g-one without her and you're expected to escort her. Now brace, for I've got a knock-down blow for you." "A what?" "I mean it A blow below the belt." "De Fooliers hasn't gone back on r^JH." S.aid Frank, ''or ^kipped otitf Damn h'hu, H he' nas. it sfiaTl cost htm evary drop of blood—-—'' "No. not that," interrupted Paul; "although you've hit very near it. .O* Fooliersis a fraud—worse—a murderer, and will be arrested at that ball almost in the company of your sister and mother, unless we can stop it.". "Your proof," shouted Frank in a frenzy of rage. "Lower, Frank, lower; don't shout so: the walls have ears." "By God, Paul, unless you can back that up it will be the last word that shall ever pass between us, though I • iove you better than a brother. Mora than that, you shall answer for it though you wer« " I <; Be calm, Frank—have I ever deceived you? Finish dressing. Your sister is waiting. While I wait and we are driving over I will tell you all I oan. and then you must be your own best judge." Frank did as Paul bade him and soon they were rolling quickly to the Lebourgeois mansion. I Parti recounted his story as hurriedly as possible. "It may be all a plot, a horrible conspiracy," were his words, ' "but I can't make out Archer's possible object in a deception, and I saw the dispatch with my own eyes." 1 "1 am afraid not." was Frank's re- pi v. "I've always felt uncomfortable about the man. though I never could find anvthing specific against him. That's whv I staid behind on the other 1 side. But here we are." And the swift ' rolling came to a stop with a jerk, and i the driver threw open the door. The ! young men started to jump out; but 1 thev did not jump, they were thrown I out. Paul lighted on his feet. But Frank was not so fortunate. He lay at full length on the ground, apparently unconscious. "Areyou badly hurt?'" asked Paul, as he bent over him. "No." said Frank faintly, 'T gnesa cot. But have me carried in as if I was. Lou will have to tend me. Send and get mother as quickly as possible. Then, in any case, they will not b« at the ball to-night" "Waat te it, Mr. Terry, what is it? Ob, Frank, are you dead? . Oh, mother, mother!" Miss Lebourgeois. who had been listening for carriage wheels, had followed Jules out as .soon as the hack was bwd to stop. "Nothing so bad as that, I "hope—-f an» sere." said Paul.

At every national circuit meet this year the meet promoter will have t_ place on the programme one cbazupioii- sliip race. In this race but five men will be allowed to start, heats and semifinals being run until the field is sifted down to five men. This will e iv e every one in the race an equal chance and also prevent any team, work, which otherwise would be sure to crop in. iu oue respect bicycla racing, ever since it has been placed oil a business basis, resembles prizefighting, wrestling and other brunches of spore which are infested by certain "stars" and "proD.mters who do a deal of talkiug ui;d bcathiy about the bush iu endeavoring to secure frt-e advertising by proposing luatcbcs' without any n j al intent to consuLLmatt anything of the kind.

For ~'3 a ' years Lintou has raced almost constantly with marked success, and his present three months off the tract is a vacation to him which be does not enjoy.

Every thought and care is given to the comfort and well being of the new comer after it has entered into the portals of life and taken its place at the family fireside. Yet during the time when baby is expected few women do all they should to insure J the little one's con- stitu- tional strength and vigor. No mother wants ( to have a puny, weakly, sickly baby yet unless she herself is entirely healthy in the special, delicate structure which makes motherhood possible, the baby is certain to suffer in some way for her weakness or neglect. The surest way to avoid this is for the mother to reinforce her own strength by the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription during the time of anticipation. It will make her perfectly healthy. It will lighten and brighten the time of waiting'.
