Johnnie's' preparatipns -were.. conducted with vigor and promptitude;' ·within two hours his.belongings were packed. He seizetl his hat and hns- tened downtown to the'office of ths Cuban Jcnta. · - ' "· A businesslike young nmn^ inqnired his errand.

"Bat Just how to reach the iusurrectbs---" : "If you'd merely, give me a letter saying I'm.a friend--" The doctor-promptly negatived this suggestion. -"Surely-you don't think it can be clone lis easily as that?",'he inquired. "In. ^he first place, wherever yon land, you will'be watched and probably searched. ' Such a letter, if discovered, would not only end your chances, bat it would bring .certain disaster upon those to -whom: It was writ-, ten. ily two brothers, Tomes and Ignacio, reside in Cuba, and we all work for the cause of independence In our own ways.

It was not long before lie gained admittance to the presence of Mr. Entltluez, a distinguished, scholarly Cuban of middle age. ; O'Beilly plunged boldly InM the ! "I shall do eiactly as yon say;' "Very well, then! Go to Neovltas, where Tomas lives--there is a steamer leaving in three or fonr days, and you can arrange · passage on her. He is a dentist.

Cnba, whea It came fairly Into sight, .lay bathed In golden miublne, all warmth and welcome, lite a bride npon an arare couch. The moist breath from her fragrant shores swept over the steamer's decks and Johnnlo O'Reilly sniffed It Joyfully. Although there were but a few passengers on the Dunham Castle, thoy were subjected to.a long delay, during j which suspicions customs men searched ' their baggage and questioned ttetn. Finally, hoivever,.O'Rellly found himself free to go ashore. El Gran Hotel Enropea, Neuvitas' leading hostelry, belled its name. It was far ?rom large, and certainly it was anything but Earope«n except, perhaps, in Us proprietor's extravagant and un-American desire to please, at any cost. But it was the best hotel the place afforded, and Senor Carbajal [..was tbe most attentive of hosts. .1, He evinced an nnnsual Interest In j the affairs of his American guest, and 1 soon developed a habit of popping into the tatter's room at unexpected moments, ostensibly to sc« that all 'was ns it should be. When, for th» third time, he appeared without knotting, O'HeiHy suspected something. · . "Yon have everything, eh3" Mr. Car- Spaniards themselves. Tni afraid I- can't help you." '.

During breakfast, and afterward throughout an aimless morning stroll, O'BeUty felt watchful eyes-upon htm. When he returned to his hotel h'3 found Sir. Carbnjal In the cafe con- .cocting refrescos for some military ofll- 'ce'ps, who scanned the American-with" ·bold, hostile . glances. O'Rqtily complained to the proprietor of a toothache. -He declared that something had to be done at once, find Inquired thR name 'and address of the best locai dentist Mr. Carbajal named several, among them Dr. Tomas Aivarado, whereupon his guest hurried away, followed at a respectful distance by the- secret agent. Finding Doctor Alvarado's office was closed, as he had anticipated, O'Reilly proceeded to the doctor's residence. There was some delay when he rang the bell, but eventually the dentist himself appeared. O'Beilly recognized ;him from his resemblance to his brother. He addressed English. , : "I come from Felipe," he began. "He well remembers you whipped ,hlm to keep him from going to the Ten Tears' war." The-' languor of Doctor 'Alvarado's siesta vanished. He started, his eyes widened,' ";'..: '. .., _ "Who are yon?" he muttered. . "Mr: name is O'Keiliy. I am an American, a friend, so don't be alarmed.- The man 'yon see approaching i« following me, but he thinks I have come to you with a toothache^" "What do yon want?" "I want yerar help to Joining the in- TOrrectos."'. . ' ' By-thls.time the detective had come within earshot' linking.'an-effort-at self-possession, the dentist said: "Very well. I will meet yon at my office in a half-hour and see what can be done." -Then be bowed. O'Heilly raised his hat .and turned away. TO BE CONTINUED. HHiEIEF Get Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets .
