Maltlaml, about to show Him tno jew

from "Snaltli's" cane. Tho latter proved
to bo Anlsty himself and ho secured tho

CHAPTER V. Continued.
At sight of him tho tlilof was con
scious ot an inward tremor, followed
by a thrill of excitement like a wave
of heat sweeping through his being.
Instantaneously his eyes Hashed : then
were dulled. Imperturbable, listless,
hall-marked tho prey of ennui, he
waited, undecided, upon the stoop,
while tho watcher opposite, catching
sight of him, abruptly abandoned Ills
slouch and hastened across the street.
"Exctiso me," he began In a loud
tone, while yet a dozen feot away, "but
ain't this Mr. Mallland?"
- Anlsty lifted his brows and shoul
ders at ono and tho sntno tlmo and
"Well, my good man?"
i "I'm a detective from headquarters,
Mr. Maltlaml. Wo got n 'phone from
Greenfields, Long Islnnd, this morning

over at our leisure. What do you say
to Eugene's? It's handy, and I dare
say we can find a (pilot corner. Hy
tho way, havo you tho tlmo concealed
nbout your person?"
, Anlsty wns fumbling In his fob
pocket and inwardly cursing himself
for having been such an as3 as to
overlook Maltland's timepiece. "Deuc
ed awkward!" he muttered in genuine
. annoyance. "I've mlslnld my watch."

Flattered, tho man from headquar
ters dropped Into step by tho burglar's
Eugene's at Two.
"Slnco wo don't want to bo over
heard," remarked Mr. Anlsty, "It's no
use trying tho grillroom downstairs, al
though I admit It is more interesting."
"Just as yeh sny, sir."
Awed and awkward, the police de
tective stumbled up tho steps behind
his Imperturbable guldo; It wns a
great honor, in his eyes, to lunch In
company with a "swell." Man of
stodgy common sonso and limited edu
cation that he was, tho glamour of
tho Maltland millions obscured his
otherwise clear vision completely. And
uneasily he speculated as to whether
or not ho would bo ablo to manipulate
correctly tho usual display of knives
and forks. x
An obsequious headwaitor greeted
them, bowing, In tho lobby. "Good aft
01 noon, Mr. Maltlaml," ho murmured.
"Tablo for two?"
"Good afternoon," responded the
masquerader, with an assumed ab
straction, Inwardly congratulating
himself upon having hit upon n res
taurant whero tho real Maltland wns
oldently known. Tlioro wore few clr-
cuniBtnnces which ho could not turn
to profit, fewer emergencies to which
ho could not rise, ho complimented
Handsomo Dan Anlsty.
"A tablo for two," ho drawled Malt-land-wise.
"In a corner somowhore,
away from tho crowd, you know."
"This way, If you please, Mr. Malt
land." "By tho way," suggested the burg
lar, unfolding his serviette and glan
cing keenly about tho room which
by good chance was thinly populated,
"by tho way, you know, you haven't
told mo your name yot."
"Hlckoy John W. Hlckoy, detective
"Thank you." A languid hand
pushed tho pink menu card across tho
tablo to Mr. Hlckey. "And whnt do
you seo that you'd like?"
"Well . . ." Hlckoy became con
scious thnt both unwieldy feot woro
nervously twined about tho legs of his
chair: blushed; disentangled them;
and In an attempt to cover his con
fusion, plunged madly Into considera

veyed tho slightest particle of Informa

"Well," ho repeated, and molstoned
his lips. Tho room soemod suddenly

ot his neck.
"I ain't," ho declared In ultimate
despeiatlon, "hungry, much. Had a
bito a little while back, over to the
Gllsey houso bar."
"Would a little drink?"
"Thanks. I don't mind."
"Walter, bring Mr. Hlckoy a bottle
of No. 72. For me let mo seo cafe
au lalt," with a grand nlr, "and rolls.
. . . You must remember this Is my
b'eakfast, Mr. Hlckoy. I malA it n
rulo never to drink anything for six
hours after rising." Anlsty selected a
cigarette from the Maltland enso, lit
It, and contemplated tho dotectlvo's
countenance with tv winning smllo.
"Now, as to this Anlsty affair last
Under the stimulus ot the cham
pagne, to say naught of his relief at
having evnded tho ordeal of tho cut
lery, Hlckoy discoursed variously and
at length upon tho engrossing subject
of Anlsty, gentleman-cracksman, whllo
tho genial counterpart of Daniel Malt
land listened with apparent but decep
tive apathy, and had much ado to keep
from lnughlng In his guest's fnco as
tho latter, persplringly earnest, un
folded his plans for laying tho burg
lar by the heels.
From tlmo to time, and nt inter
vals steadily decreasing, tho hnnd of
tho host sought tho nock of tho bottle,
Inclining it carefully nbove tho thin
stemmed glnss that Hlckoy kept in al
most constant motion. And tho do
tectlvo's fatuous loquacity flowed as
tho contents of the bottle ebbed.
Yet, as the minutes woro on, the
burglar began to bo conscious thnt It
was but a shallow well of Information
and amusement that ho pumped. Tho
game, fnsclnatlng with Its spice of
daring ns It had primarily been, began
to pall. At length tho masquerader
calculated tho hour as rlpo for what
he had contemplated from tho begin
ning; and Interrupted IBckoy with
scant consideration, in the mlddlo of a
most Interesting exposition.
"You'll pardon me, I'm sure, If I
trouble you ngaln for the time."
The fat rod fingers Bought uncer
tainly for the timepiece; the bottlo
wns now empty. Tho hour, as an
nounced, was ton minutes to two.
"1'vo an engagement," invented
Anlsty, plausibly, "with a friend at
two. If you'll exctiso me ? Garcon,
"Thon I und'stnnd, Mister Maltland,
wo c'n count on yeh?"
Anlsty, oyollds drooping, tipped back
his chair a trlllo nnd regarded Hlckey
with a fair Imitation of tho whimsical
Maltland smllo. "Hardly, I think."
"Why not?" truculontly.
"To bo frank with you, I havo threo
excellent reasons. The first should ho
sufllclent; I'm too lazy."
Disgruntled, Hlckey stared and
shook a disapproving head. "I was
afraid of that; yeh swells don't never
seem to think nothin' of yor duties to
Anlety airily waved tho Indictment
asldo. "Moreover, I have lost nothing.

Hlckey's oyes glistened. "Of course,

Anlsty'B hand sought his pocket.
"Well, I guess I can leave that to
you. Yeh oughttuh know how bnd yeh
want tho matter hushed."
"As I calculate It, then, fifty ought to
bo enough for the boys; and fifty will
repay you for your trouble."
Tho end of Hlckey's expcnslvo pan
oela was tilted Independently toward
the celling. "Shouldn't wonder If It
would," he murmured, gratllled.
Anlsty stuffed something bulky back
Into his pocket and wadded another
something green and yellow colored
into a Httlo pill, which ho presently
flicked catolessly across tho table. The
detective's large mottled paw closed
over It and moved toward his waist
coat. "As I was sayln'," ho resumed, "I'm
sorry yeh don't seo yer way to glvln'
us a hand. But p'rhnps yeh'ro right.
Still, if tho citizens 'd only give us n

"All, but whnt gives you your liv

a good deal, off and on, and nlways
glad to seo a friend."
At another tlmo, nnd with another
man, Anlsty would not havo ventured
to play his catch so roughly; but, as
he had reckoned, tho conifortablo stato
of mind Induced by an unexpected ad
dition to his Income nnd n quart of
champagne, had dulled the olllclal ap
prehensions of Sorgt. Hlckoy.
Mumbling a vngtio acceptance of tho
too-genial Invitation, tho exalted de
tective roso and ambled cheerfully
down tho room and out of the door.
Anlsty lit another cigarette and
contemplated the future with satisfac

things taken itudor muttiro considera
tion, tho conclusion was Inevitable that
ho was tho vory dovll of a fellow, With
what consummate skill ho had played
his hand! Now the pursuit of tho
Maltland burglar would he abandoned;
the nuws Item suppressed at headquar
ters. And it was equally corlain thnt
Maltland (when eventually liberated)
would be at pains to keep his pnrt of
tho affair vory much In shadow.

In n breath was self-satisfaction
banished; simultaneously tho masque
rader brought his gaze down front tho
celling, his thoughts to earth, his vigi
lance to the surface, and himself to his
feet, summoning to his nld all that ho
possessed of resource and expedient.
Trapped! the word blazed Incan

His naine bad been uttered In no
stem or menacing tone; rather its
syllables had been pitched in a low
nnd guarded key, with an undornoto
of raillery and cordiality. In brief, tho
moment that lie tecognlzed tho voice
ns a woman's, he was again master of
himself, nnd, awaie that the result of
his Instinctive impulse to ilse and de
fend himself, which had brought him
to a standing position, would be In
terpieted as only the natural action of
a gentleman addressed by a femlnlno
acquaintance, lie wns conlldent that
ho had not betrayed his primal con
sternation. Ho bowed, smiled, and
with eyes In which astonishment swift
ly gave place to gratification and com
plete coinpiohonsion, appraised lief
who had addressed him.
Sho seemed to have fluttered to the
table, beside which she now stood,
slightly swaying, her walking costume
of gray shot silk falling about her In
soft, tremulous petals. Dainty, chic,

ognized her In a twinkling. His per
ceptions, t rnlned to observations as in
stantaneous as those of a snap-shot
camera, and well-nigh as accurate,
had photographed her Individuality In
delibly upon the film of his memory,
even in the abbreviated encounter of
tho previous night.
By a similar piny of educated reason
ing faculties keyed to the highest pitch
of immcdlnto action, ho had dlfllculty
ni scant in accounting for her pres
ence there. What ho did not qulto
comprehend was why Maltland had
used her so kindly; for It had been
plain enough that that gentleman had
surprised her In tho act of safo-break-Ing
boforo conniving nt her escape
But, allowing that Maltland's actions
had been based upon motives vague to
the burglar's understanding, It was
qulto In the scheme of possibilities
thnt ho should havo arranged to moot
