CHAPTER XVI. Continued.
The Japanese who had brought the
prospectuses from the tonneau now
stepped to Maku's assistance, for
Onue had made a motion of the body
which showed that he was rapidly
losing his patience.
Still no answer.
"Ha!" The exclamation nnd a ring
of triumph. "Mees have um!" He
nodded toward the car where the girl
"No." exclaimed Orme vehemently.
"She has not."
"Mees have um." repeated Arinia.
"We hunt, We see."
"1 tell you she has not," said Orme.
"Xo believe you." Arima chuckled.
As Orme twisted himself around, he
was enraged to see the Japanese in
the car seize the girl by the arm and
drag her to the ground. Once on her
feet, she did not resist, but permit
ted herself to be led toward the lit
Arima advanced a step to meet her.
"Give me papers." he said.
"I have no papers," she protested
"We search you." said Arima, taking
another step toward her and extend
ing his hands.
It may be that Arima did not intend
actually to lay hands on her. His
thought may have been that the threat
-would induce Orme to tell where the
papers really were. But the effect
on Orme was to set him ablaze with
His swift, indignant purpose seemed
to multiply his strength until the lit
tle men who held him were like chil
dren in his hands.
A sudden jerk, and he had pulled
both his arms free. Maku and the
man at his other side were taken com
pletely by surprise, and before they
had time to recover themselves. Orme
had thrown his arms around them and
crushed their heads together with
such force that they dropped limp
and unconscious to the ground. The'
were out of the fight
At the first sounds of struggle, Arima
turned. Now, as Orme charged to
ward him, ho bent slightly forward,
every muscle tense, ready to strike
or trip or twist
His framework was overlaid by mus
cles that were like supple steel. Light
and quick, he had a strength that
could hardly have been inferred from
his build. And though Orme's out
break had been sudden, the Japanese
was apparently not in the least dis
concerted. He knew how to turn the rush of
the American into a disastrous fall.
He knew how to prod with his bony
knuckle the angry man's solar plexus
how to step swiftly aside and bring
the horny edge of his hand against
sensitive vertebrae. He could seize
Orme by the arm and. dropping back

he wished him. Yes, Arima had ev

Arima. from his knowledge of Amer
ican fighting methods, had reason to
think that Orme would continue his
charge and strike out with his fists
when he came near enough. That,
however, is something that Orme did
not do. For, in his two previous en
counters with the Japanese, he had
learned much. He had learned, among
other things, the value of the unex
pected. And though his anger was
almost blinding, he cooled, during I

sounds made by their writhings.
He caught a glimpse of the girl. The
searchlight of one of the cars struck
full on tbp side of her face, and drew
there a distinct shadow of the net

the strained, excited look in her eyes.
Her captor still held her arm. He

Suddenly he raised his left arm
above his head and clenched his fist.
His right arm remained by his side.
A step forward. The upraised arm
descended. Swiftly Arima reached up
ward to seize It But even as the one
arm descended. Orme swung his oth
er, with terrific force, up from the
waist, and caught Arima on the mouth.
The blow missed the chin, but it
was hard enough to fell any man of
ordinary strength. Arima staggered
back, past the girl, and brought up
against the side of one of the cars.
But with hardly an instant for re
covery, he leaped forward again and
the man who was holding the girl al
so sprang at Orme.
It would be folly to meet the two.
Orme turned and ran quickly in
among the trees of the little grove.
The darkness was his friend, for the
pursuers halted in their quick run
and separated, proceeding more cau
tiously. As for Orme, once in shelter, he
stopped for breath.
He could see the two men coming
toward him. They were outlined
against the radiance from the motor
cars. Cautiously he stepped toward
the south, hoping that they would pass
him in the darkness, but he dared not
move rapidly, lest a stumble or the
breaking of a twig betray him.
All this time the engines of the two
cars had continued to work, and their
muffled chug-chug-chug helped to cov
er the noise of footsteps.
What pleased him most was to see,
out of the corner of his eye, that the
girl had taken advantage of her re
lease to c:imb to the chauffeur's seat
of the car in which Maku had brought
them from Chicago. That meant that,
if he could reach the car, they might
get away. But the papers
By this time Orme was between his
pursuers and the road. He stopped
and groped about till he found a fair
sized stone, then worked toward the
edge of the grove. The moment was
at hand to make a dash.
Ten steps would take him to the
car; then a leap into the tonneau, and
off to the northward he and the girl
would speed. Pursuit would be de
layed for a few precious moments, for
the Japanese would have to turn the
other car around. Those few mo
ments would determine the margin of
success or failure.
But there were the papers. At all
cost they must be secured. The plan
that flashed into Orme's mind was
to draw the Japanese from the spot
and then, jumping from the car let the
girl lead the pursuers on while he
Just as he was about to rush for the
car he heard a sound among the trees.
He wheeled and saw the dim outline
I of one of his enemies coming toward
him. In his excitement he had for-
i gotten that just as they could be seen
' bv him when they were between him
and the road, so he could now be seen
by them. Undoubtedly he was out
lined, as they had been, against the
background of the light.
The Japanese was only a few feet
away. Orme threw the stone; by
good luck it struck the man in the
stomach, and he dropped to the ground
and rolled in silent agony.
But at the same moment Orme was
seized from behind, and held in a
grip he could not break. Indeed,
when he tried to break it, there was
a sudden, killing strain on his spin-

Then Arima's voice said, close to his
"Where the papers?"
Japanese character thus brought its
fresh surprise to Orme. Even after
this hard fight, when three of his
friends lay groaning on the ground
when he had in his power the man
who had injured them, who had tem
porarily bested himself Arlma's chief
thought was still of the papers!
He seemed to have none of the semi

The lives of his companions counted
for nothing besides the papers!
"Where?" repeated Arima.
"I haven't them," said Orme. "You
ought to know that by this time."
The answer was a torturing pres
sure on Orme's spine. "You tell,"
As the pressure increased Orme's
suffering was so keen that bis senses
began to slip away. He was gliding
into a state in which all consciousness
centered hazily around the one sharp
point of pain.
Then, suddenly, he was released.
For a moment he staggered limply,
but his strength surged back, and he
was able to see how the situation had

or if the other car had not moved, the
light would not have shone upon them,

had tossed them a few feet farther to

To Orme, at this moment, came the
memory of the girl's desire to avoid
publicity. "Nothing wrong," he said.
The policeman stared. "I've been
watchin you from over there," he said.
"It looks like nothin' wrong, with men

"Just a little trial of strength," ex

ward the shadows where the three
injured men were slowly coming back
to their senses.
"Not seriously." said Orme.
"We'll see about that later," replied
the policeman decidedly.
Orme tried to carry the affair off
boldly. Every moment of delay now
threatened defeat for him. "There is

man. "And you, there" he nodded
toward Arima "come here."
Arima hesitated, but the muzzle of
the revolver turned toward him, and
he came and stood a few feet away.
"There's somethin' mighty funny
about this," continued the policeman.
"We'll just get into one of these cars
and go to the station."
"This man and me?" asked Orme.
He had visions of no great difficulty
in satisfying the questions of the local
justice, but he knew that an arrest
would mean delay, perneps 01 noura.
And Arima had the papers.
"I mean that man, and you, and the
woman. I'll send some one for the
others. If you're the fellow that did
the sluggin on the campus last night,
you won't get away from me again."
"What's the use of dragging the
young lady into this?" demanded
"None o your business."
"Can I speak to her a minute, first?"
"No, you can't There's been too
many Chicago hold-up men around
here lately, and I won't take chances
with you." The policeman made this
explanation apparently in deference
to Orme's appearance, which,, in spite
of the evidence of struggle, was that
of a gentleman. "Looks don't always

She sat in the car, not more than

he must reassure her as to himself
before he carried out the plan which
bad suddenly come to his mind.
"You will make a mistake, officer,
if you detain me," he said, speaking
distinctly, so that the girl would be
sure to hear.
"Cut it out," said the policeman.
"A little telephoning will set me
free in an hour," Orme continued,
bending to pick up his hat, which had
fallen to the ground at the beginning
of the fight "You can't do anything
except take me to the station and find
out that you have bungled."
"That's my affair," said the police
man. "But here, we'vo done enough

gesture which indicated that they

Now, Orme knew that the girl had

there was no reason for her to doubt

The policeman lay helpless in the
cunning hold of Maku Maku. who.
fully restored to his senses, had crept
up to save Arima from the law.

But Orme, reaching upward, got his

feet from the ground. The car
For a time Orme merely kept his
position. The dust whirled up in his
face, and he bad to close his eyes, but
he was conscious that the car was
gaining speed rapidly.
The situation was as difficult as II
was dangerous. He planned nothing
less than to climb Into the car and
deal with Arima even while they wer
flying along the road. But he must
wait until they had gone a safe dis
tance from the battleground. On the
other hand, he must act before they
got into the thickly settled streets o!
He figured that they had gone about
a quarter of a mile, when he began his
effort Pulling himself up by his
hands, he peered over the back of the
tonneau. He could see Arima, hud
dled forward over the steering-wheel,
doubtless watching the road ahead
with a careful eye for obstacles and
for the police.
For Arima was driving the car at a
law-breaking speed. Clearly, he was
an adept at motoring. But Orme did
not stop to ask himself how a humi
ble teacher of jiu-jitsu a professional
athlete had acquired so much skill In
the handling of a car.
It proved hard to get into the ton
neau. Several times he got one leg
almost over tho back, only to be dis
lodged as the car bumped into a rut
or over a stone. Once he almost lost
his grip entirely. But a final effort
gave bin! a leg hold, and slowly very
slowly he climbed over to the leath

If Arima now turned and saw him,
almost anything might happen. But
before he could become conscious that
anyone was near him, Orme was
crouching. In the tonneau.
The car was going at a 35 mile clip.
The street lights were flashing by, and
not far ahead were the frequent lights
of houses. Nothing could be done
here; therefore Orme got down as low
as he could. He realized that he
would have to wait till they had
passed through the town.
Arima had not remained on the
Sheridan road. He had taken a street
which struck off from It, more direct
ly southward, and Orme surmised that
the intention was to avoid the main
streets of Evanston.
When the car came to a cross street
and turned westward this surmise was
strengthened. They bumped over rail
road tracks. Several times they
passed other vehicles.
