OF°TH£ MIDNIGHT SUN"£tC. {Copyright, 1805, Isy American Press Association.] "Yes; I know all about it." "Will you tell me?" "It is your business to learn such things. Why do you come to me?" "Because it is beyond my skill. 1 can't comprehend how that stone Was taken from tho room in the Windsor hotel." "Of course yon can't, " she said, with a still nioro marked smile, "because you Americans are stupid. You must •come to India to learn wisdom. " "Will you become my instructor?" "No; I must have a pupil with a Blind (hut will understand the simple troths that are plain to a child." "When tho pupil is stupid, then the teacher should be patient and try tr things clear to him. " But when ho is too stupid to understand it is n waste of time." "Yon hnvo not tried me." "Bi'causo you cannot comprehend. I kriow it by your looks. " ' -I am paid to brar a close resemblance to your husband. " "r.i:'inuIUih, what slanders are heaped « pon his head!" she exclaimed, with .sKch n tra^'H' air that I laughed. "It, may 'he a slander," I said, "upon •Jhim or against ?m>, but it ought to maku yon wiliiMj; to try my ability to grasp those siniplt- truths. I thought that per- li.-ips tin- owner of the ruby rose in his sleep and removed it to some place which hi" forgot. " •".No; it was simpler than that." •'Why not tell mo at once?" I asked, •more impatient than I ought to have .been. The one thing which troubled me raoru than all others was the' odor that I had noticed and which steadily grew more pronounced. It was nauseating, though I could see no evidence that it itroubled her in the least. To raise the window I would have to cross tho floor, and unless I did it by backing would give the man in the hall •just the chance for which he was waiting. There was no saying what she •s?ould do in tho meantime. Altogether th*. risk was more than I ought _to as- «nuH-. i grimly rosolved to sit it out nntl'l siho would be compelled to seak relief. Why should a frail, delicate woman be able to take more poison into her lungs than -A strong man like myself? .It .'ought to be the other way. .SUfSKSUe no answer to niy las't question, and I added: "I do ur.t doubt that the secret rests •with YOU, and if you choose you can ex- mlain'that which is inexplainable to the rest, of us. Now, I will give you my riJertge that if you will tell the whole Wtb neither you nor your husband •shall be mol?Ptod or prosecuted in any way. " •-'And of what value is such a guarantee to iv:- ii you hud the power to give it? What protection do we wish? What -.turn! we done that wo should fear your tain telie! from this villainous staff. Great Cresar. 1 can't stand it either!" I rose and began moving toward the nearest Window on tiptoe that they hiight not know what I was doing. The floor creaked under my feet, but I could aot take another inhalation of the vile atmosphere. I must have fresh air if I had to plunge head first through one of the windows, carrying the sash with me. But 1 had no purpose of doing that. 1 was dizzy and uncertain in my gait but my brain waaiauddletl ancTaaabieto comprehend anything oleatly. But Ufa •was at the flow, and as she chafed my hands and spoke soothing wotds I Was able to sit up, though suffering from a splitting headache and a deadly nausea the like o£ which I had never esperi- but I reached the window, and laying fi-e >m-.i oiuaiyli, i-i-ce neither had stolen ^ rn\iy, v:\r.\i crime could lie imputed them"' Tlrj man had sold an immense- y valuable &-m to John B.

"I will not deny it to you,' was the •told response, "but for us it never could have taken place. I admit that because .no one o:in hear ._.. . deny it and say to them, as I say now vtoy'ou, 'Prove it.'" "But I cannot, and, since you have said so much to me alone, why not say more and tell tho whole thing? It can cause you 110 harm. " my revolver on the table on my right grasped the sash With both hands to raise it. Everything became dark, and an odd humming was in my ears. I knsW I Was fainting, and could I have raised the Window would have been revived. I reached out vaguely and uncertainly, but feeling myself going grasped anything Upon which I could lay bauds. It proved to bo the end of the table. There was a crash of splintering glass as that and myself went down on the floor with a violence that must have shaken every window iu the building. I remember so much, and then my senses left me. From this point, for a considerable time, my dependence is naturally upon others for information, but- the source was beyond attack. Tho'crash and fall caused Darius Howard, who had made a quick return from his railway journey, to open tho door and peep cautiously in. The racket also brought Mrs. Bridges hurrying up stairs, and she followed the couple into tho room. "Brin« some water. Open the window or he will die!" It was Mrs. Bridges who spoke these excited words and set about obeying them herself when Darius Howard caught her arm: "You must do nothing of the kind, good madam." "But that's the only way to revive a person when ho faints." "Ordinarily, yes, but his fainting has been produced by that odor which you notice. He will recover after awhile, but not for half an hour or so. If you sprinkle water in his face or allow the cold air to blow on him, it will be fatal. That is because of tho nature of the drug." "Mercy! But what shall we do?" "You can do nothing but leave him alone. Ho will come all right after awhile." But the distressed woman insisted on bringing a pillow and placing it under my head to make me comfortable when I had no more consciousness of comfort than if the breath of life had wholly left my body. . There is little doubt that when Darius Howard departed that morning it was to learn whether any one was shadowing him. His speedy return showed that he had not gono far. When he came back, it- was with the intention of mov- in«with his wife from the old stone house, iievcr to return. The occurrences of the last few days had convinced him that ho had been traced by more than ouo enemy thither, and he could ?jot leave too soon. He had made his arrangements before I entered vhe house. Trunks were packed and all tho luggage which he intended to take was prepared. He had come to the place with the intention of having Mr Bridges carry them to the station, when the old lady imparted the startling tidings that a strange man was up stairs in the "workshop" talking with his wife. Howard was frightened and savagely au»ry. He stole up stairs as silently as he'oould, but I discovered his presence there, and, as I have shown, addressed my words as much to him as to his wile. I am satisfied that he meditated shooting mo through the door, though there can bo no certainty on that point. Mr. Bridges, having agreed to take the couple and their luggage to town that afternoon, came homo about this time for that purpose, though his wife was unaware of tho arrangement. The preparations were quickly completed, the landlord and lady were paid an extra tee lor their trouble, and in less time than would be supposed Howard and his wife were in tho metropolis of our country. This timo both wont to the Astor House instead of lodging at different hotels. Their departure left the good old Get me out of this horrible room," 1 muttered, with that abominated .odor penetrating my nostrils "I shall die if I stay here." . . 1 did not let her beat much of my Weight, but Iwas blind* and she guided .. i t \ _i __ 1 1 ^.H<3 ***&/* 4-Vtn * ' ft 4-»rtT"O me out into the hall and into the "spare room," where I tumbled upon the bed and straightway lost consciousness again. >.

I must have trodden close to death. In truth, I believe I stepped over, and it was the gentle hand of the good woman So, whon all was quiet down states ahct no one could know 1 Was astir, I walked uncertainly across the hall, turned tha knob aarl stepped across the threshold. As t did so 1 caught that same odor ^faict, almost imperceptible to ordinary senses, but in my delicate condition it almost overcame me again. It Waa so abhorrent, so noxious, so hate- fulj that had 1 not instantly stepped back and closed the door I must have succumbed as before.

Had she not opened the window above my head where I lay I would have been dead within the next minute or two. When Howard warned her not to do this or sprinkle any water in my face, it was with the purpose of preventing my recovery. He nearly succeeded. The man had not taken away my revolver nor any of the vessels, instruments and glass articles that were ruined by the overturning of the table. They simply went off with their luggage, saying they would be back in a few days, but I was sure this would never take place, and it never did. I would like to know the composition 1 of that stuff which the woman threw into the stove, and which, while it did not seem to affect her, robbed me of my senses. No doubt there are plenty of such drugs in this country as- well as in- Asia, but I never knew one whose power was so baneful and continuous-. CHAPTER XX. Everything connected with Nana Sahib's ruby was uncanny. _ A full week passed before my mind freed itself of the effect of that subtle, noxious drug which came within a.haii of robbing me of life. When I became- mentally my own master, I attemptec to leave my bed and found I could not stand. My'lower limbs were paralyzed; I wondered whether it was- permanent. I would have summoned my physician from New York but for the conviction that he could give me no help. The nature cf the drug must be un- ence near senses. "Keep your secret!'* I exclaimed, hastening back to my own room, where 1 threw myself on the bed until I could rally. "It shall remain a secret forever if it can be solved only through that horrible taint. " .« 1 now began to figure When I could leave my friends. The Weather, which had been sunshiny and pleasant, became cold, rainy and dismal. It lasted three days before the skies cleared and the sun showed itself. Then I told them that I Was going home. They urged me to stay nntil my strength was fully restored, but 1 assured them that such Was the fact now, and I would only be wasting precious time, of which too much had already been squandered. To test myself, I walked in from the country, instead of allowing Mr. Bridges to bring me in his carriage. One of the strangest things about my experience with that dreadful drug was that when I reached the station I could not perceive the slightest effects from it. I was as strong, as robust, aa powerful and active as ever in all my life. Duty called me to New York, and I went thither without delay. I was sorry to learn afterward that my good wife had begun to feel anxious about me; but, nob suspecting anything of the kind, I devoted a little time to work before At tho Astor HOTTSB I learned that Mr. and Mrs. Howard had staid there on the night they came in from New Jersey. They left the following day to sail for England: A litstle inquiry brought rne the cabman, an honest, straightforward fellow, wbo> had taken' their luggage' to> the pier,, and 1 he assure* me that he saw them oa the upper deck of the Campanai -when she- s-TVung- ouU into the stream.. The fact that they had 1 sailed on' thia ocean greyhound some'two weeks before proved that they WOTO- well' over toward. tho other side of the-worlt1 and probably touring on the'ooutiuient orwellem; their way to India. "They have talteru with them, their secret, "" I reflected,, "a secret which has baffled mo and every one- that had) anything 4o do wiith' it.. 1 ' 1 ' I started to- go> d'ownj to Maiden' lane, but the afternoon was-so far along, that Iwas apprehensive- of not finding: Mr. Brown*, so I deferred ray call until: tho morrow (Dnsruy way up town-T dropped 1 in- at the-Wiudsor,.but learnedUhat Mr. Sandr husen.had joinedhis famiiyat their city residence.

Knowing that at the end of 20 days it would decay, vanish, tutn to nothingness, he must of necessity complete its sale within that period, or he Would have nothing to sell. After he had left the tfaflft Sahib ruby with Mr. Brown my husband became very much frightened, believing be had made a mistake as to its-age-. Ha had given Mr. Brown a week m which to sell it, but Luchjid feared rfrwottld not live that long. He sent me to -" on Mr Brown and learn the truth 1 did so. When I admired the-; wet turned it over in my hand and looked at tho box, I made the dreadful discovery that within 12 hours the ruby would) pass out of existence.

She chafed my hands and was CHAPTER XIX. It was on her tongue to tell me, but evidently she was not sure of the wishes of the man outside the door, ° ° first obtain his permission. Her manner had changed. One not knowing the truth would have still supposed we were friends chatting together. She looked at me with a bright expression and said: . ' 'If you will wtouse mo tor a minute." Tartly rising from her chair, she ,-awaJtod my permission. "Most certainly. 'Consult with yonr ihusbaud as much as you choose." It was u critical moment. The door must he opened to allow her to pass out, and what would follow? Perhaps both noticed my extra alert- uess, for she walked into the ball, and the door was again closed without any demonstration. I observed a delicate vapor issuing 'from the door of the stove. It w»s of anowy whiteness and must have bee» ' the cause ot ! that sickening oc]or, which Almost overcame me. . "She threw soino substance 111 -a fewwiuute*. ago when she pretended to S the fin, Bbo bw W *J.WH}: .dows fastened so a.s to give we the full beueflYof it, She is laofe aoQu*toinecl to try Only the fabricator of the thing could neutralize its effects* and whoever that man was he was not in America unless it was Darius C. Howard. So I decided to wait. Meanwhile I received the best of nursing. I was visited continually by the ^Bridges with whom I had engaged quarters, and she and her husband were as anxious to help me along the road of recovery an were the couple with whom I was forced to stay. They procured such articles as I needed and handled me with the utmost kindness and care. I had long been forgiven for the little deception practiced to obtain admission to the upper floor for I convinced them that the hand-some man and beautiful woman who took up their quarters with them were evil persons who were engaged in unlawful practices. Indeed Mrs. Bridges reproached herself for having given, them shelter so long without being more particular in her inquiries. At the end of three or four days a. most thrilling discovery came to me— strength was returning to my trame. In a little while I would be fully myself again. . More than once I was ou the point ok , sending word to my wife and bringing hpr to my bedside, as she would have hastened t« come the moment she knew of my extremity. But wherefore? She could donoiaoro for me than was being done by my faithful attendants. My wife has long urged me to give up my perilous vocation for some pursuit of less danger. M I should tell her all, as I would bo obliged to do, she would allow me no rest until the change was made. I was not ready to make it and doubt whether it ever will be made. If the time should come when 4 ne» lieved death impended, I could summon her in a few hours. I would wait until the necessity arose, which, thanK the- laboratory and toiling mght and day His'sons- became discouraged, all Tbut tho youngest, Arnik r who assured, Mm that he- would! succeed. A* last a» strange success came to the o3d' man. Ho- nmd'e a perfect ruby of 80 carats. In- every respect it was equal to Knnai Sahr&te ruby, except that it was not so-large-.. It was-a» hard, as brilliant and as* Iwminous;. It would preserve all these-qualities, bn-t euly for a time. At the-end of- aO'days—almost to the hour —it would! of itself 'dissolve into gas and ai few crimson particles. Having: been a, ruby for tbwk period, it would ceass- to exist. The great man cotrttl do-nothing; more and was so worn out from, liia- years- of thought and labor- that one day ...while- at work in bis shop,; he wa* seized with, a fatal faintness.: My husband was alone-Trith him.

In his excitement he took no note of tho little grains; left behind, nor did he notice-the slight odor of the released gas, which, should: have attracted his attention.
