to join his friend and distant relative

in an important and mysterious task,

Dudley. Wilton postpones an explanation
of the stranse .-rnind Dudley is to per
form, but occurrences cause him to
know it is one of no ordinary meaning.
"Wilton leaves Giles in their room, yiith
instruction to await his return and shoot
any one who tries to enter. Outside there
is heard shout and curses and the noise
of a quarrel. Henry rushes in and at
, his request the roommates quickly cx
chanKe clothes, and lie hurries out again.
Hardly has he gone than Giles is
startled bv a cry of "Help." and he runs
-flut to find some one being assaulted by
a half dozen men. He summons a police
man but they are unable to Jind any
trace of a crime. "Giles returns to his
tooiii and hunts for some evidence that
might explain his strange mission. He

Doddridge Knapp.
It was past ten o'clock of the morn
ing when the remembrance of the
mysterious note I had received the
preceding night came on me. I took
. the slip from my pocket, and read its
contents once more. It was perplex
ing enough, but it furnished me with
an idea. Of course I could not take
monev intended for Henry Wilton.
Hut here was the first chance to get
:.t the heart of this dreadful business.
' The writer of the note, I must sup
pose, was the mysterious employer.
If I could see her 1 could find the way
of escape irom the dangerous burden
of Henry Wilton's personality and
Hut which bank could be meant?
'. The only names I knew were the
. Bank of California, whose failure in
the previous year had bent echoes
even into my New England home, and
the Anglo-Californian Bank, on which
'.! held a draft. The former struck
me as the more likely place of ap-
""pointment, and after some bkilful
; navigating I found myself at the cor-
" nor of California and Sansome streets,
; before the building through which the
.wealth of an empire had flowed.
'" I watched closely the crowd that
passed in and out of the treasure-
. house, and assumed what I hoped was
an- air of prosperous indifference to
my surroundings.
No one appeared to notice me.
'.There were eager men and cautious
' " men, and men who looked secure and
"men who looked anxious, but neither
""man nor woman was looking for me.
'Plainly 1 had made a bad guess. A
V hasty walk through several other
.-banks that I could see in the neigh
"Vborhood gave no better lesult. ami I
had to acknowledge that this chance
. 'nf. penetrating the mjstery was gone.
""I speculated for the moment on what
jlhc effects might be. To neglect an cr
uder of this kind might result in the
'with-drawal of the protection that had
saved my lire, and in turning me over
,"o the mercies of the banditti who
thought 1 knew something of the
whereabouts of a boy.
'" ' As 1 reilected thus, I came upon a
crowd massed about the fcteps of a
. great granite building in Pine Street;
it whirlpool of men, it seemed, with
. cross-currents and eddies, and from
the' whole rose the murmur of excited
." It was the Stock Exchange, the
gamblers paradise, in which millions
. were staked, wen and lost, and ruin
"and affluence walked side by side.
. . ;As I watched the swaying, shout
ing mass with wonder and amuse
ment, a thrill shot through me.
Upon the steps of the buiiding,
amid the crowd of brokers and specu
lators, I saw a tall, broad-shouldered
' man of fifty or fifty-live, his face
keen, shrewd and hard, broad at the
. temples and tapering to a strong jaw,
a yellow-gray mustache and imperial
half-hiding and half-revealing the
firm lines of the mouth, with the
mark of the wolf strong upon the
" ivhole. It was a face never to be for
gotten as long as I should hold mem
ory at ull. It was the face 1 had seen
twelve hours before in the lantern
Hash in the dreadful alley, with the
cry of murder ringing in my ears.
Then it was lighted by the fierce fires
of rage and hatred, and marked with
"the chagrin of baffled plans. Now it
"was cool, gcod-humcred. alert for the
. battle of the Exchange that had al-
ready begun. But I knew it for the
same, and was near crying aloud that
here was a murderer.
'i clutched my nearest neighbor by
"- the arm, and demanded to know who
it was.
. "Doddridge Knapp," replied the
". man civilly. "He's running the Chol-
lar dca: now, ana if I could only guess
which side he's on. I'd make a for
"tune in the next few days. He's the
King of Pine Street."
While I was looking at the King
"of the Street and listening to ray
neighbor's tales of' his operations,
Doddridge Knapp's eyes met mine.
To inv amazement there was a look
of recognition in them. Yet he made
no sign, and in a moment was gone.
. . This, then, was the enemy 1 was
to meet! This was the explanation of
Detective Coogan's hint that 1 should
be safer in jail than free on the
streets to face this man's hatred or
I must have stood in a daze on the
busy street, for I Tvas roused by some
one shaking my arm -with vigor.
"Come! are you asleep?" said the
man. speaking in my ear. "Can't you
tf "Yes, yes," said I, rousing my at-
"The chief wants you." His voice
was low, almost a whisper.
"The chief? Who? Where?' I asked.
"At the City Hall?" I iumped to the
fWzcazT Jvar
conclusion that itwas, of course, the
chief of police, on the scent of the
"No. Of course not. In the second
office, you know."
This was scarcely enligtening.
Doubtless, however, it was a summons
from my unknown employer.
.'"I'll follow you," I said promptly.
"I don't think I'd better go," said
the messenger dubiously. "He didn't
say anything about it, and you know
he's rather "
"Well, I order it," I cut in decisive
ly. "I may need you."
I certainly needed him at that mo
ment if I was to find my way.
"Go ahead a few steps," I said.
My tone and manner impressed
him, and he went without another
word. I sauntered after him with as
careless an air as I could assume.
My heart was beating fast. I felt
that I was close to the mystery and
that the next half hour would deter
mine whether 1 was to take up Henry
Wilton's work or to find my way in
safety back to my ow unic and pec
son. My unconscious guide led the way
along Montgomery Street into an of
fice building, up a flight of stairs, and
into a back hallway.
"Stay a moment," I said, as he had

his hand on the door knob. "On sec

He tur ":1 back, and as his foot
steps echoed down the stair I opened
the door and entered the office.
As 1 crossed the threshold my heart
gave a great bound, and I stopped
short. Before me sat Doddridge
Knapp, the King of the Street, the
man for whom above all others in
the world 1 felt a loathing and fear.
Doddridge Knapp finished signing
his name to a paper on .ir desk be
fore he "looked up.
"Come in and sit down." he said.
The voice was alert and business like
the voice of a man accustomed to
command. But I could find no trace
of feeling in it. nothing that could tell
me of the hatred or desperate purpose
that would inspire such a tragedy as
1 had witnessed, or warn me of dan
ger to come.
"Do you hear?" he said impatiently;
"shut the door aud sit -own. .lust
spring that lock, will you? We might
be interrupted."
I was n t at all certain that I shouiu
not wish very earnestly -hat he might
be interrupted in rhat Bret Harte
would call the "subsequent proceed
ings." But 1 followed his directions.
Doddridge Knapp was not less im
pressive at close view than at long
range. The strong face grev stronger
when seen from the near distance.
"My dear Wilton," he said, "I've
come to a place where I've got to
! trust somebody, so I've come back to
you." The voice was oily and per
suasive, but the keen gray eyes shot
out a glance from under the bushing
eyebrows that thrilled me qz a. warn
ing. "It's very kind of yen." I said, swal-
! lowing in astonisnment with an ef
"Well," said Knapp. "the way you
hondled that Ophir matter was per
fectly satisfactory; but I'll tell you
that it's on Mrs. Knapp's say-so, as
much as on your own doings, that I
selected you for this job."
"I'm much obliged to Mrs. Knapp,"
1 said politely. 1 was in deep waters.
It was plainly unsafe to do anything
but drift.
"Oh, you cs.n settle that with her at
your next call,' he said good hu
moredly. The jaded nerves of surprise re
fused to respond further. If I had re
ceived a telegram Informing me that
the dispute over tiie presidency had
been settled by shelving both Hayes
and Tilden and giving the unanimous
vote of the electors to me, I should
have accepted it as a matter of
course. I took my place unquestion
ingly as a valued acquaintance of
Doddridge Knapp's and a particular
friend of Mrs. Knapp's.
Tet it struck me a strange XL&t
tie keen-eyed Kins of t5e Street hud
failed to discover that he was n)t
talking to Henry Wilton, but,to sotre
one else vho resembled, him. " There
were enough- differences in- feature's
and "voire to distinguish 'us amonf
intimate -friends,- though there were
not enough to be "seen by casual ac
quaint? nces. I had the key in thai
next fc'ntence he spoke.
""I have decided that it is better
tbis time to do our business face to
face. I don't want to trust messenj
gcrs on this affair, and even cipher
notes are dangerous, confoundedly
dangerous." '
Then we had "hot been close ac
quaiutances "Oh, by the way, you ha've that
other cipher yet, haven't you?" he
"No, burnt !VI said unblush
ingly. "That's right," he said. "It was
best not to take risks. Of" course you
understand that it won't do for us to
be seen together."
"Certainly not," I assented.
"I have arranged for another office.
Here's the address. Yours is Room
15. I have the key to 17, and 16 is
vacant between with a 'To Let sign
on it. They open into each other.
You understand?"
"Perfectly," I said.
"You will be there by nine o'clock
for your orders. If you get none by
twelve, there will be none for the
"If I can't be there, I'll let you
know." I was off my guard for a mo
ment, thinking of the possible de
mands of Henry's unknown em
ployer. J
"You will do nothing of the kind,"
said Doddridge Knapp shortly. His
voice, so smooth and businesslike a
moment before, changed suddenly to
a growl. His heavy eyebrows came
down, and from-, under them flashed
a dangerous light. "You will be there
when I tell you, young man, or you'll
have to reckon with another sort of
customer than the one you've been
dealing with. This matter requires
prompt and strict obedience to or
ders. One slip may ruin the whole
"You can depend on me," I said
with assumed confidence. "Am I to
have any discretion?"
None whatever. i
I had thus far been able to get no
hint of his purpose. If I had not
known what I knew, I should have
supposed that his mind was concen
trated on the apparent object before
him to secure the zeal and fidelity
of an employe in some important
business operation.
"And what am I to do?" I asked.
"Be a capitalist," he said with an
ironical smile. "Buy and sell what I
tell you to buy and sell. Keep under
cover, but not too much under cover.
You can pick your own brokers. Bet
ter begin with Bockstein and Eppner,
though. Your checks will be honored

Composers Cannot Tell Just Howl
They Do It.
A St. Lord's composer, whose operas
have achieved popularity all over the
United States, was recently asked how
he composed music.
"I don't know." he said, "sometimes
a melody is suggested to me by the
words of a poem, sometimes by a
sound like the rumble of a street car,
or the rattle of the wheels of a rail
road train, and sometimes it comes as
an inspiration without any origin that
can be traced. People occasionally
have the idea that, after a melody is
written, the composer must sit down
at the piano and hammer out a har
mony, but, as a fact, no musician ever
hears a melody without at tbe same
time heading in his own mind all the
harmonies that are appropriate to it."
A St Lcuis orchestra leader, who is
also a composer, says that he -never
tries to write music until he feels the
"Sometimes days will pass "without
writing a line, simply because I feel
no inclination to write. Then, all of
a sudden, without any notice, melodies
I .suppose yotrtl wast jeaae ready
woaey." t
Doddridge Ksapp wtr certainly a'
liberal provider, for he iboved a hand
fui .of twenty-dollar gold pieces across
the desk inv way that made my eyes
"By the way,"hecontinued, "I don't,
think I have your signature, have I?'
"No, sir," I replied with prompt
"Well, just write it on .this slip
tken. I'll turn it into the bank1 for
your identification. You can take the
check-book with you."
"Anything more?"
"That's all," he replied with a nod
of dismissal. "Maybe it's to-morrow
maybe it's next month."
And 1 walked out into Montgomery
Street, bewildered among the con
flicting mysteries in which I had been
A Night at Borton's.
Room 15 was a plain, comfortable
office in a plain, comfortable building
on Clay Street, not far from the heart
of the business district. It was on
the second floor, and its one window
opened to the rear, and faced a deso
late assortment of back yards, rear
walls, and rickety stairways. The
floor had a worn carpet, and there
was a desk, a few chairs and a shell
of law books. The place looked as
thougb it haa belonged to a lawyet
in reduced circumstances, and I could
but wonder how it had come into the
possession of Doddridge Knapp, and
what had become of the former occu
pant. I tiled to thrust aside a spirit oi
melancholy, and looked narrowly to
the opportunities offered by the room
for attack and defense. The walls
were solidly built. The window-case
ment showed an unusual depth for a
building of that height, liie wall had
been put in to withstand an earth
quake shock. The door opening into
the hall, the door into Room 16,-aud
the -window furnished the three ave
nues of possible attack or retreat.
The depression of spirits that pro
gressed with my survey of the room
deepened into gloom as I flung mysell
into the arm-chair before the desk,
and tried to plan some way out of the
tangle in which I was involved. How
was I, single-handed, to contend
against the power of the richest
man in the city, and bring home
to him the murder of Henry Wilton?
I could look for no assistance
from the police. The words ol
Detective Coogan were enough to
show that only the most convincing
proof of guilt, backed by fear of pub
lic sentiment, could bring the depart
ment to raise a finger against him.
And how could I hope to rouse that
public sentiment? What would my
word count against that of the King
of the Street?
Where was the motive for the
crime? Until that was made clear I
could' not hope to piece together the
scraps of evidence into a solid struc
ture of praof. And what motive
could there be that would reconcile
the Doddridge Knapp who sought the
life of Henry Wilton, with the Dodd
ridge Knrpp of this morning, whe
was ready to engage him in his con
fidential business? And had I the
right to accept any part in his busi
Fatigue and loss of sleep deepened
the dejection of mind that oppressed
me with these insistent questions, and
as I vainly struggled against it, car
ried me at last into the o'.livion oi
dreamless slumber.
The next I knew I was- awaking to
the sound of breaking glass. It was
dark but for a feeble light that came
from the window. Every bone in my
body ached from the cramped position
in which I had slept, and it seemed
an age before I could rouse myself to
act. It was, however, but a second
before I was on my feet, revolver in
hand, with the desk between me and
a possible assailant.
Silence, threatening, oppressive,
surrounded me as I stood listening,
watching, for the next move.
"I thought the transom was open,"
said a low voice, which still seemed
to be struggling with suppressed
"1 guess it woke him up," said an
other and harsher voice. "I heard a
noise in there."
"You're certain he's there?" asked
the first voice with another chuckle.
"Sure, Dicky. I saw him go in
and Porter and I have taken turns to
watch ever since."
"Well' it's time he came out," said
Dicky. "He can't be asleep after that
racket. Say!" he called, Harry!
