"I know" "It command* the road Yowwlll be challenged, if you pan it, to tarn In Johnnie O'Reilly had no difficulty In locating tbe residence of Ignaclo Alva- ndo but *to communicate with him was quite another matter Inasmuch as his every step was dogged by that persistent shadow from I\ueritas One evening several days after his arrival, a sudden rain storm drove Oltellly indoors, and as he ascended to his room he saw that the lamp In the hallway ilared and smoked at every gust of wind It was very dark outside; be reasoned that the streets ·would be deterfd Hastily securing that book which Alvarado, the dentist, had given him, he took a position close Inside h!3 door TVben he heard the *py pass and enter the next chamber fee stole out into the hall and breathed into the lamp chimney A moment later he was safely through the window and was working his way down the shed roof praying that hlfi movements had not been seen and that the tile* were firm He nimbly scaled the vail, crossed an inclostire climbed a ·econd wall and descended into a dark ·Ide street TaUnc advantage of the densest «hadus and the numerous overhanging balconies, he set out at a brisk trot A light showed through the barred windows of the Alvarado home indi eating that the family was in After aome Inmblln? ORellly laid hold of the latch, then, without knocking he opened the front door and stepped in His sodden Appearance threw the occupants Into alarm a woman cried out sharply;) a man whom O'Reilly identified as Ignaclo Alvarado himself leaped to his feet and faced him, exclaiming: "Who are you*' "I'm a friend Don't be alarmed ** Johnnie summoned his most agreeable milt, then be extended the sodden package he had carried beneath hit arm. "I come from your brother Tomas. Be asked me to hand yon this book and so say that he Is retarn lag It with his thanks." "What are yon saYing" 1 Plnlnh- the ·peftker did riot comprehend, there was nothing but apprehension in his race. OTtellly tore the wet paper from the Tolnme and laid it la Alvarado's hand. "Look at it piense and von'H under ctand I didn't tafte time to knock, for fear I might be followed Alvarado stared first nt the book, __ _ then at his caller After a moment he j nnc Vsrnnd---' made a sign to his wife, who left the loom Wettinj,' his lips, he Inquired, with an effort, "What do yon want'' O'Reilly told him la a few words at the hospital gates, for the negroes will overtake you at that point They will stop to adjust tbe saron^of the lead horse That will be your signal, mount him and ride fact Now, adloa and good luck." With a smile and a quick grip of the band tbe messenger walked swiftly an ay ORelliy returned to his hotel At last 1 One week, and this niimb- inf, heartbreaking delay would end, he would be free to take up his quest. But those seven days were more thaa a week, they were ccren eternities The hours were like lead; ORellly could compose bis mind to nothing, ho was In a fever of impatience The day of days dawned at last and Johnnie was early at Manlns gotta fountain drinkftig Iniripld beveragon and anxiously watching the street In due time the negroes appeared their straw sarons laden with produce which they Innocently disposed of O'Reilly began to consult his watch with such frequency that the druggist joked him Mnnln's banter was Interrupted by a bugle -ill Down the street came perhaps two hundred mounted troops. They wheeled into San Rafael street at n gallop and disappeared in the direction of the suburbs. "Now, what does that mean?" murmured the druggist "Walt here while I go to the roof, where I can we something" OTteHly tried to compose himself, meanwhile beronUng aware of a grow Ing excitement in the street Then from the direction of the fort at the end of San Rafael street sounded a faint rattling fusillade, more hugie calls, and finally the thin, distant shouting of men. "Rebels ^ someone cried. "Dlos rolo, they are attacking the city'" "Ihey have audacity, ehr The roofs were black with people now Manln came hurrying down into the store. "Something has gope wrong," he whispered "They're fighting ont yonder in tbe woods. There has been some treachi'ry " "It is ·en-atteen," said OTSeflly. "I must be going" Msnln stared at him. "Ton don't Alvarsdo showed relief he even smiled. "I set, but--Caramhn' You gave me a start And this book' Ha' Tomas will btr. e his jokes. It U well yon took precautions, for I am under ·nrvelllmnce. I U help you, yes' But you must not corre here again Return to your hotel nnd-- Let me think ' Senor Alvarado frowned in deepest thought; then he said "I have it' Every morning at half past nine a man wearing a Panama hat and a~*gray ·settle witn a large gold pin will pass ·long the stderalk across the street from the Isla de Cuba You wll! know him One day I cannot promise BOW* soon, he will lift his hat thui and wipe his face You understand 7 Good ToHow him He will give yon fiml di- rertlon^ Ton know M-tnln, the drug l 6 !!,^ 1 ' y ° U Clm , he will keep you posted as-to our prog rew J,w go before someone comes." O'Reilly wrung the Cuban s hand Then lie stepped out Into the night, leaving a pool of water on the clean blue tiles where he had stood "Those black fellows are getting their horses ready I'm going" The druggist; tried to force Johnnie into a chair "Madman" 1 be, panted *.PT!R : CHA O'Reilly's Plan* Fall. In tb» days that followed his call on Ignncio Atvarado, O'Reilly behaved so openlT that tbe v ecret service agent to Watch him relaxed bis vigilance Manifestlv this OTUilly was a harmless person Bnt the spy did not guess how frantic Johnnie was be coding at the delay, how he inwardly chafed and fretted when two weeks had rolled by and still no signal had come. Then, too, his money was run nlng 'ow. At last, however, the day arrived when the man with the gray necktie raised hia^hat and wiped his brow as he passed tte Isla de Cuba Johnnie could scarcely hold himself in his chair By and by he rose stretching hinunlf, and sauntered after the fellow For several blocks he kept him in right but without receiving ?-ny farther sign Without a glance over his sbou.der the man turned Into a large, walled in ctarcre When Johnnie followed he round bjmscif In one of tbe old etrae- teriea. Ahead of him up a shady avenue bordered vitl trees, the stranger hurried, then he swerved to bis left, and when OTSe'ily came to tlw point where he hftfl i^satepftRr*^ there wag nobody .n iifat. Apprehandlog that be had made icme mistake In the signal O'Reilly has'^oed down the walk. Then at lot, to his great relief, he heard a aibllant: "Psrt!

The latter began raplily: "Onr plans are complete Listen closely One week from today, at ten o'clock In the morntag. yon most be In Mania 1 ! dr»g atare.

OTtellly ripped ont another oath and fonght off the other's restraining hands "Very well then," cried Manin "bat have some thought of us who have risked our lives for you Suppose you should escape' How n ould onr troops receive you now? Would they not think you had cunnlagly arranged this trap'" A light of reason alowly reappeared in the younger man's eyes ' "No 1 " Manln pressed his advantage "You tan-it wait until--" He broke oft abruptly and stepped behind his counter, for a man in the uniform of a Spanish lieutenant had entered the store The newcomer walked directly to O'Reillv he was a clean cut alert Incriminating IQ Toar possession O BelHj s face betravetl his amaze- meet.

I believe you are a wirier' The American smiled "Are writers such dangerous people'' "That altogether depends upon clr cnmstances The United States is inclined to recognize the belligerency of these Cuban rebels and her relations with Spain are becoming dn'_y more strained, ill feeling grows and all because of the exaggerations the mendacities that have gone forth from, here to your newspaper!
