Fortler, before bo fell, struck at. that face and felt hto fist drire solidly home. In response, hn'vgot another blow across the Bkull that (lasted him again—and the garroto dreew tlghtor. He wont to the floor, fell heavily, with the powerful fluurc of Petit Jean on top of him. The crash of the falling figures seemed to uhake tho house. "Tie Win up, quick!" tmappod the vole« of Felix tMrtcarly. "Get a couple of the men from the boat—carry him out." "Here!" said Totlt Jean, «narllng over the word. "Hero—finish ttnow!" "Do as I say, curse you!" pnapped young Macarty. "Think I don't know i what I'm doing? Carry him aboard, [ and do It quick!" For a little 1'eUl Jean bent over the figure of Fortlor, then came erect and slipped away like a shadow. Felix Macarty closed the library door, darted to the desk and began wrenching away the fragments of its back. A moment afterward be produced two boxes of plain wood. Ono was quite small, tho other jreas larger— barely large enough to be slipped into a coat Tuicket. Both boxes were fastened only with brasa catches. Thoj hud lain In a secret compartment at (be hack of the desk. Felix Macarty bent over and searched again In the ruins of the woodwork. There was nothing more - not oven a scrap of paper. The two little boxes and nothing else, had been concealed there. Satisfied of th(a fact, Macarty went over to the table. For a moment he hesitated, looking down at the two boxes. Then he thrust the larger box into his pocket and, with a deft movement, unfastened. the cover of the smaller one. The lid flew back. The man caught his breath as lie staired down. Lying bedded In a deep pad of black velvet, were four precious objects. Two of these were pinkish pearls, an evenly matched pair of great globules, staring up at the man with a soft luster as of concealed fire In their depths. "The Gemini!" murmured Macarty in awed tones. The third pearl was a most peculiar an ilextraordiuary creation. It was not pure white, nor "was 4t round. In­ st cad, It was tfi«.p«d like the moon just, before the full—an elliptical form whose perfection was none the less remarkable. So, too, was its hue, which was a clear and most delicate ciair-cle-luue. transfused by that slieeuy luster which come senly to the nacre of a pearl. "The Sea-moon!" murmured Macarty. He looked at the fourth gem— j thls one a stone, the Queen of Sheba, a pure white diamond as .large as the nail of his little finger. From tho black velvet, this thing blinked up at him with a thousand little tongues of naming fire that licked at his brain. Lost to all around him. the man stood transfixed, staring down at what lay in his hand. Like most, other people in the world, he had rarely seen a perfect, jewel; the sight, of those lour at once was a revelation to him. As he gazed, a transformation came into his f ace-- a subtle change. let the dream -words of Cap'n Wrexham, "you can't bank on what'll happen when a man sees loot spread out before him." When that loot consists of four jewels, ftmoug the most perfect and beautiful lnj the world—jewels which, even In tie Orient, had been deemed worthy of persona! names— then a!i probability is lost. No two pe-sous will be affected iu the i.ame way. What renders one man sane,! will evoke the devil from another. Tho | inmost hidden depth of a man's nature surges up and takes command of him. Thin* a slow change took place i:i Felix Macarty as he gazed at those four precious objects. Tho cold cruelty of his face became smoothed out, so that he looked more like his father He had the things in his hand — they wore, his. Tho game was won. As he stared at lhem,» the smoldering eyes of him deepened into a steady blaze of thought. One would have said that these four jewels set the brain of this ] man to work. Such was actually the case. When he caught the sli«ht, creak of the opening door, Macarty coolly shut the little box and dropped it into bis pocket. Then he turned, perfectly calm and self-possessed. He saw Alino Lavergne standing on the threshold and watching him. Her eyes were comprehending and perhaps a little sad. "Felix! So you dared this much?" she said quietly. Macarty merely nodded. His gaze darted past her, and he perceived that tho body of Fortier had. vanished. A sudden blaee of exultation leaped into his eyes, a.s; he saw how everything was cleared away for him—how the game was won! Never in his life had his evil brain worked so fast, so coherently, so perfectly as at this moment. "Of course, Aline., of course," he eald, and approached the door. "Listen, now! You are coining aboard the 3'acht—now, this moment! My father Is there. We must have a straight talk, settle everything up—" "So far as 1 am concerned,"'returned the girl quietly, "everything is settled and—" "Listen to me!" Macarty lifted a hand, fio strange was the authority in hit face and voice, so vlhrant bad his personality suddenfy become, that Alino ihaused, yielded. "If you make any noiRe, th»t fool lawyer of yours will be down here to investigate—and I'll shoot him. This is a family matter. You come aboard with rne; the boat's waiting." Perhaps tho thought ot Fortler struck Aline very hard. If Fortier came down here now, be "would doubtless attack the Intruder—and the pistol which had leaped into tho hand ol Felix Macarty was menacing. Be ; sides, what had she to fearf Her calm, deep eyes dwelt upon the man speculatively, a bit puzzled by the singular change that had como over him. "Very well," she said unexpectedly. "Perhaps it isbest that I go'with you. A frank underatandlng will cloar up things once and for all. Wait until 1 get a wrap." A silken thing was flung around her. SheHurned and -went to tho stairs. Ho well did Kqllx know tho deep serenity of hor, that he actually stood in silence and lot hor go. When she had vanished, a deep breath cuiuo from him. "Won!" he »ald to hinuali. "jau«rjy. thlnij'n clear now—everything! The game's In my hands, and it 's won. Sale—-purlectly safe!" Ho stepped to the light awltch and plunged the room in darkness, then pttsaod out In tho hull. Thoro he turned on a dim light, and waited. Presently Aline reappeared, descending the stairs. About her figure was wrapped 4hat long stole of ermine lined with sun-hued silk on which was; broldercd the name of the emperor-- tho stole ot ermine which* Wrexham had left iu hor room . Felix, gazing up at her, caught his breath again, so greatly did the ermine enhance tho dellcato beauty of the girl. He held out hUs hand to her, but she quietly Ignored It, and wont past hhn. He followed. In silence thoy went through tbo opon door to tho gallery, an-d BO down toward tho lauding. Across tho starlit waters a bout was heading In and Felix laughed softly to himself. He realized that Fortier had been taken aboard tho yacht. Aline knew nothing of this. Two of the crew were at the oars of the boat, Petit Jean Hunnopln was in the bow. No words wore exchanged. Alino stepped into tho stern of the boat, and Felix Macarty followed; he niado a gesture, and the boat shoved 'off. j As they approached tho gangway of tho yacht, a .canoe w^is seen swinging there. It was tho same canoe which had fetched Petit Jean and Solomon out of the bayous. "Come below, please," said Felix to the girl, when they had gained (he deck of the yacht. David Macarty was now in sight. Alino followed him dowlj the rem. panionway. At the foot of thin, Felix paused and threw open the door of the cabin which Aline had previously oc- cdupied. "In there," lie said. "Wait until 1 send for you." She looked at him a moment, her eyct disquieted. Perhaps Bhe meant The Game Was Won. to refuse. Before she could speak, Felix quietly UKik her arm and pushed her inside. He shut the .loot', turned the key in the lock, and pocketed it. Caught!" ho said to himself, and laughed. "Won--the game's, won!" A slight sound at his elbow. Ho turned to find Petit Jean standing there. 'Well " demanded the outlaw, hoarsely. "Well? What luck? Find them?" Felix readied out, clapped the man on the shoulder, broke into a low, vibrant laugh. 'All the luck in the world, roon ami!" he cried. "Come along, now. I'm running this game, understand? The orders come from me." "Certainly?" murnlured the other. He looked at Felix admiringly. Felix led the way along the passage to the little saloon cabin—a tiny room. Hero, beneath a cluster of electric] lights, a card taWe had been set "P. David Macarty sat smoking nervously, a bottle of brandy and glasses at his elbow. At sight of the two men, ho sprang to his feet. "Felix! What—what luck?" Felix looked at his fathar, and smiled in a singular fashion. "Where yoli failed/' he said slowly, "I hav won." "Won! Yon have them?" Felix nodded and dropped Into a c 'i .air. He took a cigarette from his pocket, lighted it- Petit eJan dropped into a chair, likewise. "Let's Bee them!" said the outlaw. "Yes, y .ea!" exclaimed David Macarty, seating himself again. "Where are they?" Felix blew a thin cloud of smoke, gazed at them for a moment from narrowed eyes, and then spoke. • "Kindly remember, both of you, that While you may be sharing tho proceeds e.maliy with me— it Is I who am giving the orders. You understand,?" They assented with a nod, a geBture, in eager Bllence. "The stones are in my pocket," went on Felix, "but we are not going to inspect them Just yet. First, there is going -to be some talk—by me. We are In a situation that demands fiude-k and sure action. A false move will ruin us. 1 have the whole thing in my brain, and I am going to tell you exactly what ia to be dono. You under- stani?" Again a silent axscnt. David Macarty reached for his glass and gulped down its contents. Tho brandy had heartened him, fired his constitutional caution Into life and action. "You're a wonder, Felix!" he spluttered, and wiped his Hps. "A wonder! What'vo you gone and done?" "Enough," eald Felix. "Now, kindly llBten—and. pay attention to me!"
