lie was sitting in a music hall one
evening sipping his absinth and ad- !
miring the art of a certain famous
Uussian dancer when he caught a pass
ing glimpse of a pair of evil black
eyes upon him. He had had the un- j
canny foelimr for some time that he j
was being watched, and it was in re- j
spouse to this animal instinct that was j
strong within him that he had turned j
suddenly and surprised the eyes in the
very act of watching him. j
Before he left the music hall the !
matter had been forgotten, nor did he j
notice the swarthy individual who j
stepped deeper into the shadows of an j
opposite d orway as Tarzan emerged j
from the brilliantly lighted amusement j
As he turned in the direction he was j
accustomed to taking from this part of j
Paris to his apartments the watcher

Tarzan hnd been wont to traverse
the Rue Maule on Lis way home at i
night- r.ecause it was very quiet and
very dark it reminded him more cf his j
beloved African jungle than did the j
noisy and garish streets surrounding it. i
If you are familiar with your Paris
you will recall the narrow, forbidding :
precincts of the Hue Maule. If you ;
are not you need but ask the police i
about it to learn that in all Paris there j
Is r.o street to which you should give i
a wider berth after dark. j
On this niaht Tarzan had gone two I
squares through the dense shadows of
the squalid old tenements which line j
this dismal way when he was attract- ;
ed ly scre:!;:!s :r. cries for help from
the third floor of an opposite building.
The voice was a woman's. P.efore the
echoes of her first cries had died Tar
ran was bounding up the stairs and
through the dark corridors to her res
cue. At the end of the corridor on the
third landing a door stood slightly ajar,
and from within Tarzan heard again
the same appeal that had lured him
from the street. Another instant found
him in the center of a dimly lighted
room. An oil lamp burned upon a high,
old fashioned mantel, casting its dim
rays over a dozen repulsive figures.
All but one were men. The other was
a woman of about thirty, ner face,
mark :-d by low passions and dissipa
tion, might once have been lovely. She
stood with one hand at her throat,
crouching against the farther wall.
"Iltlp. monsieur." she cried in n low
voice as Tarzan entered the room:
"they were killing me."
As Tarzan turned toward the men
about hi:n he saw the crafty, evil faces
of habitual criminals. He wondered
that they had made no effort to escape.
A movement behind caused him to
turn. Two things his eyes saw, and
one of them caused him considerable
wonderment. A man was sneaking
stealthily from the room, and iu the
brief glance that Tarzan had of him
he saw that It was Kokoff.
But the other thing that he saw was
of more immediate interest. It was n
great brute of a fellow tiptoeing upon
him from behind with a huge bludgeon
in his hand, and then as the man and
Ms confederates saw that he was dis
covered there was n concerted rash
upon Tarzan from all sides. Some of
the men drew knives, others picked up
chairs, while the fellow with the bludg
eon raised it high above his head in a
ruighty swing that would have crushed

muscles that had coped with the

The woman Mill stood where she had
when Tarzau entered, but her face had
undergone a number of changes with
the few ininuies which had elapsed.
From the "semblance of distress which
it had worn when Tarzan first saw it
it had changed to one of craftiness
as he had wheeled to meet the attack
from behind: but the change Tarzan
had not seen.
I-nter an expression of surprise and
then one of horror superseded the oth
ers. And who may wonder. For the

one of his assailants, and Tarzan
fought as he had learned to fight with
the great bull aies of the tribe of Ker
chak. He was in a dozen places at once,
leaping hither and thither about the
room iu sinuous bounds that reminded
the woman of a panther she had seen
at the zoo. Now a wrist bone snapped
in his irin grip, now a shoulder was
wrenched from Its socket as he forced
a victim's arm backward and upward.
With shrieks of pain the men escaied
into the hallway as quickly as they
could, but even before the first one
staggered, bleeding and broken, from
the room Itokoff had seen enough to
convince him that Tarzan would not
be the one to lie dead in that house
this night, and so the Pussian had has
tened to a nearby den and telephoned
the jxj'.ice that a man was committing
murder on tne third tloor of Hue
When the oilicers arrived they found
three men groaning on the floor, a
frightened woman lying upon a filthy
bed, her face buried in her arms, and
what appeared to be a well dressed
young gentleman standing in the cen
ter of the room awaiting the re-enforcements
which he hail thought the
footsteps of the officers hurrying up
the stairway had announced, but they
were mistaken iu the last. It was a
wild beast that looked upon them
through those narrowed lids and steel
grry eyes. V.'ith the smell of blood the
last vestige of civilization had desert
ed Tarzan. and now he stood at bay.
like a lion surrounded by hunters,
awaiting the next overt act and crouch
ing to charge its author.
"What has happened here?" asked
one of the policemen.
Tarzan explained briefly, but when
he turned to the woman for confirma
tion of his statement he was appalled
by her reply.
"He lies! she screamed shrilly, ad
dressing the policemen. "He came to
my room while 1 was alone, and for
no good purpose. When I repulsed
him he would have killed me had not
my screams attracted these gentlemen,
who were passing the house at the
time. He is a devil, monsieurs. Alone
he ha all but killed ten men with his
hare hands and his teeth."
So shocked was Tarzan by her in
gratitude that for a moment he was
truck dumb. The police were. inclined
to be a little skeptical, for they had
had other dealings with this same
lady and her lovely coterie of gentle
men friends. However, they were po
licemen, not judges, so they decided to
place all the inmates of tin? room un
der arrest and let another, whose busi
ness it was, separate the innocent from
Hut they found that it was one thing
to tell this well dressed young man
that lie was under arrest, but quite
another to enforce it. One of them
advanced to lay his hand upon Tar
zan's shoulder. An instant later he
lay crumpled in a corner of the room,
and then, as his comrades rushed in
uion the ape-man, they experienced a
taste of what the apaches had but re
cently gone through. So qu'.-fcly and
so roughly did he handle them that
they had not even an opportunity to
draw their revolvers.
During the brief fight Tarzan had
noted the open window and lKyond the
tte:n of a tree or a telegraph pole, he
could not tell which. As the last offi
cer went down one of his fellows suc
ceeded in drawing his revolver and
from where he lay oa the floor fire4 at
Tarzan. The shot missed, and before
the man could fire again Tarzan had
swept the lamp from the mantel and
plunged the room in darkness.
The next they saw was a lithe form
spring to the sill of the open window
add leap panther-like on to the pole
across the walk. When the police
gathered themselves together and
reached the street their prisoner was
nowhere to be seen.
They did not handle the woman and
the men who had not escaped any too
gently when they took them to the sta
tion. Tbey were a very sore and hu
miliated detail of police.
The officer who had remained in the
street swore that no one had leaped
from the window or left the building
from the time they entered until they
had come out. His comrades thought
that lie lied, but they could not prove it.
When Tarzan found himself clinging
to the pole outside the window he fol
lowed his jungle instinct and looked
below for enemies before he ventured
down. It was well he did, for just
beneath him stood a policeman. Above
Tarzan saw no one, so he went up in
stead of down.
The top of the pole was opposite the
roof of the building. So it was but the
work of an instant for the muscles
that had for years sent him hurtling
through the treetops of his primeval
forest to carry him across the little
space between the pole and the roof.
From one building he went to another,
aud so on. with much climbing, until
at a cross street he discovered another
pole, down which he ran to the ground.
For a square or two he ran swiftly.
Then he turned into a little all night
cafe and in" the lavatory removed the
evidences of his overroof promenade
from hands and clothes. When he
emerged a few moments later it was
to saunter slowly on toward his apart
ments. Not far from them he came to a well
lighted boulevard which it was neces
sary to cross. As he stood directly be
neath a brilliant arc light, waiting for
a limousine that was approaching to
pass him. he heard his name called in
a sweet feminine voice. Looking up.
he met the smiling eyes of Olga de
Coude as she leaned forward upon the
back seat of the machine. He bowed
very low in response to her friendly
greeting. When he straightened up
the machine had borne her away.
"RokooT and the Countess de Coude

quized; "Paris is not so large, after

but he laughed at the quaint sugges

"On the contrary, replied Tarzan
with a smile, "it has convinced me
that it is the one worth while street in
all Paris. Never again shall I miss
an opportunity to traverse it, for It has
given me the first real entertainment
I have had since I left Africa."
"It may give you more than you will
relish even without another visit, said
D'Arnot. "You are not through with
the police yet. remember. I know the
Paris police well enough to assure you
that they will not soon forget what
yon did to them. Sooner or later they
will get you. my dear Tarzan. and
then they will lock the wild man of
the woods up behind iron bars. How
will you like that?"
"They will never lock Tarzan of the
Apes behind irou bars." replied he
grimly. There was something in the
man's voice as he said it that caused
D'Arnot to look up sharply at his
friend. What he saw in the set jaw
and the cold, gray eyes made the young
Frenchman very apprehensive for this
great child, who could recognize no
law mightier than his own mighty
physical prowess. He saw that some
thing must be done to set Tarzan right
with the police before another encoun
ter was possible.
"Y'ou have much to learn, Tarzan,"
he said gravely. "The law of man
must be respected whether you relish
It or no. Nothing but trouble can
come to you and your friends should
you persist in defying the police. I
can explain it to them once for you.
and that I shall do this very day, but
hereafter you must obey the law. If
its representatives say, 'Corner you
must come; if they say. 'Go! you must
go. Now we shall go to my great
friend in the department and fix up
this matter of the Rue Manle. Come!"
Together they entered the office of
the police official a half hour later. He
was very cordial. He remembered
Tarzan' from the visit the two had
made him several months prior In the
matter of the finger prints. Having
heard Tarzan's story, he assured him
that no harm would come to him from

whom she had been rescued by Tar
Kan. "They are to be married in London
In about two months," said D'Arnot
as he completed his perusal of the let

who was meant by "they." He made
no reply, but he was very quiet and
thoughtful during the balance of the
That evening they attended the
jpera. Tarzan's mind was still occu
pied by his gloomy thoughts. He paid
little or no attention to what was
transpiring upon the stage. Instead,

beautiful American girl and heard
naught but a sad, sweet voice ac
knowledging that his love was return
ed. And she was to marry another!
lie shook himself to be rid of his un
welcome thoughts, and at the same in
stant he felt eyes upon him. With the
instinct that was his by virtue of train
ing he looked up squarely into the
eyes that were looking at him to find
that they were shining from the smil
ing face of Olga, Countess de Coude.
As Tarzan returned her bow he was
positive that there was an invitation
in her look, almost a plea.
The next intermission found him be
side her in her box.
"I have so much wished to see you,"
she was saying. "It has troubled me
not a little to think that after the serv
ices you rendered to both my husband
and myself no adequate explanation
was ever made you of what must have
seemed Ingratitude on our part in not
taking the necessary steps to prevent a
repetition of the attacks upon us by
those two men."
"You wrong me," replied Tarzan.
"My thoughts of you have been ouly
the most pleasant. You must not feel
that any explanation is due me. Have
they annoyed you further?"
"Tbey never cease," she replied sad
ly. "I feei that I must tell some one,
and I do not know another who so de
serves an explanation as you. Yon
must permit me to do so. It may be
of service to you. for I know Nikolas
Rokoff quite well enough to be posi

"It will be an eternity until tomor

box of the Countess de Coude, and
both men smiled.

swarthy, bearded man rang the bell at
the servants entrance of the palace of
the Count de Coude. The footman who
opened the door raised his eyebrows in
recognition as he saw who stood with

tween the two.
At first the footman demurred from
some proposition that the bearded one
made, but an instant later something
passed from the hand of the caller to
the hand of the servant. Then the lat
ter turned and led the visitor by a
roundabout way to a little curtained
alcove off the apartment in which the
countess was wont to serve tea of an
A half hour later Tarzan was usher
ed into the room, and presently his
hostess entered, smiling, and with out
For a few moments they spoke of
the opera, of the topics that were-then
occupying the attention of Taris. of the
pleasure of renewing their brief ac
quaintance which had had its inception
under such odd circumstances, and this
brought them to the subject that was
uppermost in the minds of both.
"Y'ou must have wondered," said the
countess finally, "what the object of
Rokoff's persecution could be. It is
very simple. The count is Intrusted
with many of the vital secrets of the
ministry of war. He often has in his
possession papers that foreign powers
would give a fortune to possess se
crets of state that their agents would
commit murder and worse than mur
der to leam.
"There is such a matter now in his
possession that would make the fame
and fortune of any Russian who could
divulge it to his government. Rokoff
and Paulvitch are Russian spies. They
will stop at nothing to procure this in
formation. The affair cn the liner I

at cards his career would have been

they concocted the scheme whereby
my reputation was to be the price in

horrible? But I happened to know
something of M. Faulvitch that would
send him to the gallows in Russia if
it were known by the police of St. Pe

plan and then 1 leaned toward him

"Why do you not turn the scoundrels
over to the authorities? They should
make quick work of them."
v She? hesitated for a moment before
. "There are two reasons." she said
finally. "One of them it is that keeps
trtp-cornt from dojngjthat very thing.
The other, my real reason for fearing
to expose them, I have never told !
only Rokoff and I know it. I wonder
why it Is that I want to teil you the
thing that I have not dared tell even
to my husband. I bebeve that you
would understand and that you could
tell me the right course to follow. I
believe that you would not judge me
"I fear that I should prove a very
poor judge, madame," Tarr-an replied,
"for if you had been guilty of murder
I should say that the victim should be
grateful to have met so sweet a fate."
"Oh, dear, no," she expostulated. "It
is not so terrible as that. But first let
me tell you the reason the count has
for not prosecuting these men: then, if
I can hold my courage. I shall tell you
the real reason that I dare not. The
first is that Nikolas Rokoff is my broth
er. We are Russians. Nikolas has
been a bad man since I can remember,
lie was cashiered from the Russian
army, in which he held a captaincy.
There was a terrible scandal for a
time, but after awhile it was partially
forgotten and my father obtained a po
sition for him in the secret service.
"There have been many terrible
crimes laid at Nikolas' door, but be

by trumped up evidence convicting his
victims of treason against the czar,

Tarzan. "The fact that you are his

"Ah, but there is that other renson.
If I owe him no loyalty, though he bo

certain episode in my life of which ha
"I might as well tell you all." sb?
resumed after a pause, "for I see that
it is in my heart to tell you sooner or
later. I was educated in a convent.
While there I met a man whom I sup
posed to be a gentleman. I knew lit
tle or nothing about men and less
about love. I got It into ray foolish
head that I loved this man. and at li!s
urgent request I ran away with him.
We were to have been married.
"I was with him just three hours
all In the daytime and in public p!ace3
railroad stations and upon a train.
When we reached cur destination,
where we were to have been married,
two officers stepped up to my escort c.3
we descended from the train and
placed him under arrest. They tock
me also, but when I had told my Etory
they did not detain me, other than to
send me back to the convent under the
care of a matron. It seemed that the
man who had wooed me was no gen
tleman atail, but a. deserter from the
army as well as a fugitive from civil
justice. Ho had a police record in
nearly every country in Europe.
"The matter was hushed up by the
authorities of the convent. Not even
my parents knew of it. But Nikolas
met the man afterward and learned
the whole story. Now he tnrearenj to
tell the count if I do not do just as ho
wishes me to."
Tarzan laughed. "You are still Lut
a little girl. The story that you have
told me cannot reflect in any way upon
your reputation, and were you not a
little girl at heart you would know it.

him the whole story just as you have
told It to me. Unless I am much mi3-

taken he will laugh at you for your
fears and take immediate steps to put
that precious brother of yours ia pris
on, where be belongs."
"I only wish that I dared," she said,
"but I am afraid."
As Tarzan was leaving her a short
time later he wondered a liltle at tha
clinging pressure of her hand at part
ing and the firm insistence with whi'-h
she exacted a promise from h!m thit
he would call again on the morrow.
As the countess turned back into the
room after larzans departure she
found herself face to face with Niko
las Kokoff. .
"How long have you been here?" she
cried, shrinking away from him.
"Since before your lover came," he
answered with a nasty leer.
"Stop!" she commanded. "Uow dare
you say such a thing to me vour sis
ter!" "Well, my dear Olga. if ho is not

Tbe woman put her bands to her
"I will not listen. You are wicked
to say such things as that. No matter
what you may threaten me with, you
know that I am a good woman. After
tonight you will not dare to annoy me,
for I shall tell Raoul nil. lie will un

Rokoff. "I have this affair n w, and
