CHAPTER VIII. Continued.
Onne followed, and when Maku
turned west again at tho next street,
swung rapidly after him and around
the corner with the full expectation
of seeing him hurrying along half a
block away. But no one was in sight.
Had he slipped into one of the near

In a shadowed niche of tho wall be

"Hello!" the Japanese said again.
"Well?" exclaimed Orme sharply,
trying to ake the best of the situa
tion. "You mus not follow me." The
Japanese spoke impressively.
"I saw you In a mirror at the other
end of car."
So that was it! Orme remembered
no mirror, but the Japanese might ap
ply the word to the reflecting surface
of one of the forward windows.
"You lit a match," continued Maku.
"I saw. Then I come here, to find if
Orme considered. Now that he was
discovered, it would be futile to con
tinue the chase, since Maku, naturally,
would not go to his destination with
Orme at his heels. But ho said:
"You can't order me off the streets,
"I know. If you follow, then we
walk an' walk an walk mebbe till
Bex' week." Orme swore under his
breath. It was quite clear that the
little Japanese would never rejoin the
man who had the papers until he was
sure that he had shaken off his pur
suer. So Orme simply said:
Disappointed, baffled, he turned east
ward and walked with long strides
back toward the car line. He did not
look to Fee whether Maku was be
hind him. That did not matter now.
He had missed his second opportunity
since the other Japanese escaped him
la the university campus.
Crossing Clark street a block north
of the point at which he and Maku
had left the car, he continued lake
ward, coming out on the drive only a
short distance from the Pere Mar
quette, and a few minutes later, after
giving the elevator boy orders to call
iilm at eight in the morning, he was
fn his apartment, with the prospect of
four hours of sleep.
But tnere was a final question:
Should he return to the all-night res
taurant near the car barns and try to
learn from the cashier the address
which Maku had sought? Surely she
would have forgotten the name by
this time. Perhaps it whs a Japanese
name, and, therefore, the harder to
remember it; If it were a peculiar
combination of letters, the very pecu
liarity might have fixed it in her
mind. And if he hesitated to go back
there sow, the slim chance that the
naiLe remained with her would grow
slimmer with every added moment of
delay. He felt that he ought to go.
He was dog-tired, but he remembered
the girl's anxiety. Yes, he would go;
with the bare possibility that the
cashier would remember and would be
willing to tell him what she remem
bered, he would go.
He took tip his hat and stepped to
ward the door. At that moment he
heard a sound from his bedroom. It
was an unmistakable snore, lie tip
toed to the bedroom door and peered
within. Seated in an arm chair was
a man. He was distinctly yisible in
the light which came in from the sit
ing room, and it was quite plain that
ha was Eound asleep and breathing
heavily. And now for the second time
his palate vibrated with the raucous
voice of sleep.
Ornie switched on the bedroom

started from the chair.
"Who are you?" demanded Orme.
"Why the detective, of course."
"Sure regular force."
The stranger pulled back his coat
and displayed his nickeled star.

"Why, a foreign fellow came to the

keep an eye on your quarters tonight

a bit but I'm a light sleeper. I wake

inside pocket. Orme took it and tore
it open. The sheet within bore the
caption, "Office of the Chief of Po

neath In fine script, were as follows:

sure, pardon my seeming overanxiety

In view of everything that had hap
pened since the note was penned,
Orme smiled a grim smile. Alcatrante
must have been very anxious indeed;
and yet, considering that the minister
knew nothing of Orme's encounter
with the Japanese and his meeting
with the girl, the sending of the de
tective might naturally have been ex
pected to pass as an Impressive, but
The detective was rapidly losing
his self-assurance. "I had only been

Nothing had been taken, but the or

been disturbed. His conclusion was
that Alcatrante had bribed the fellow
to go much farther than official zeal
demanded. Doubtless the minister had
paid the detective to hunt for a
marked five-dollar bill and make a
copy of whatever was written on it
which would have been quite a safe
proceeding for the detective, if he
were not caught at the task. A sub
tle man, Alcatrante; but no subtler
than the Japanese.
Dismissing the incident from his

paused at the door, however, to give
the situation a final analysis. Maku
had lost something. After hunting
for it vainly he had gone to the city
directory for information which ap
peared to satisfy him. Then what he
lost must have been an address. How
would he have been likely to lose it?
Orme's fatigue was so great that he
repeated the question to himself sev
eral times without seeing any mean
ing in it He forced his tired brain
back to the first statement Maku
had lost something. Yes, he had lost
something. What was it he had lost?
Oh, yes, a paper.
It was futile. His brain refused to

"Ah!" Orme was awake now.
"How stupid!" he exclaimed.
For he had entirely forgotten the
paper which he had taken from the
pocket of the unconscious Maku, there
on tho campus! He had thrust it
into his pocket without looking at it
and in the excitement of bis later ad
ventures it bad passed utterly from
Anotbet moment and he had the
paper In his hand. His fingers shook
as he unfolded it, and he felt angry at
his weakness. Y'cs. there it was the

Number Three Forty-One.
When Orme was aroused by the
tinging of his telephone bell the next
morning and heard the clerk's voice
saying over the wire, "Eight o'clock,
sir," it seemed as if he had been
asleep but a few minutes.
During breakfast he reviewed the
events of the preceding evening.
Strange and varied though they had
been, his thoughts chiefly turned to
the girl herself, and he shaped all his
plans with the idea of pleasing her.
The work he had set for himself was
to get the envelope and deliver it to
the girl. This plan involved the find

To North Parker street, then. Orme
prepared to go. Much as he longed to
see the girl again, he was glad that
they were not to make this adventure
together, for the reputation of North
Parker street was unsavory.
Orme found his way readily enough.
There was not far to go, and he pre
ferred to walk. But before he reached
bis destination he remembered that he

it he attached no especial significance
to their failure to appear.
Once again he went to North Parker

a notion shop. Through the win
dow he saw a stout woman reading a
newspaper behind the counter. When
he entered she laid, the paper aside
and arose languidly, as though cus
tomers were rather a nuisance than a
blessing. She was forty, but not fair.
Orme asked to see a set of studs.
She drew a box from a show case and
spread the assortment before him.
He selected a set and paid her, offer
ing a ten-dollar bill. She turned to a
cash register and made change
which included a five-dollar bill.
Orme could hardly believe his eyes.
The bill which she placed in his hand
bore the written words: "Remember
person you pay this to."
He turned it over. In the corner
was a familiar set of abbreviations.
There was no doubt about it The
bill was the same which had been
taken from him. and which he had last
seen in the possession of Maku.
What an insistent piece of green pa
per that marked bill was! It had
started him on this remarkable series
of adventures. It had introduced ex
citable little Poritol and the suave
Alcatrante to bis apartment It had
made him the victim of the attack by
the two Japanese. It had brought
the girl into his life. And now it
came again into his possession just
at the moment to prove that he was
on the right track in his search for
Maku and the man who had the pa
pers. The queerest coincidence was
that the bill would never have come
into his possession at all had it not
been for his first meeting with the

"Thank yon," said Onne. He walked
out to the street, whence a backward
glance showed him the woman again
concealed in her newspaper.
At one side of the shop he found the
entrance to a flight of stairs which led
to the floors above. In the little hall
way, just before the narrow ascent be
gan, was a row of electric buttons and
names, and under each of them a mall
box. "3a" had a card on which was

they would all ctmo out again, and
one of them would have the papers in
his possession, and Orme would not
know which one.
For all he was aware, some of the
guests had already arrived. They
might even now be gathering with
eager eyes about the unfolded docu
ments. No, Orme realized that his
place was not on the sidewalk. By
some means he must get where he
could discover what was going on in
the front flat on the third floor. Stand

found himself before two blank doors
one at the front and one a little
at one side. The side door opened
slowly in response to his knock.
Before him stood a blowsy but not
altogether unprepossessing woman of
middle years. She wore a cheap print
gown. A gipsy scarf was thrown over
her head and shoulders, and her ears
held loop earrings. Her Inquiring
glance at Orme was not unmixed with
"Madam Alia?" inquired Orme.
She nodded and stood aside for him
to enter. He passed into a cheap lit

the street, and then, at her silent
direction went through a door at one
side and found himself in the me
The one window gave on a dimly
lighted narrow space which appurently
had been cut in from the back of the
building. Through the dusty glass he
could see the railing of a fire-escape
platform, and cutting diagonally across
the light, part of the stairs led to the
platform above. There was a closed
door, which apparently opened into the
outer hall. In the room were dirty
red hangings, two chairs, a couch, and
a small square center table.
Madam Alia had already seated her
self at the table and was shuffling a
pack of cards. "Fifty-cent reading?"
she asked, as he took the chair oppo
Orme nodded. His thoughts were on
the window and the fire escape, and he
hardly heard her monotonous sen

her instructions to cut and shuffle.

business," she was saying. "You will
be successful, but there will be some
trouble about a dark man. Look out

mischief. There is a woman, too.

clients. The difference undoubtedly
had both puzzled and frightened her.
