THE SUISDAY OBEGONIAU, POETEAND, 'AUGUST 2G, 190CF,
Syaopili of Preceding- Chapters.
(Copyright, 3900. by Georgo Horton.)
John Curtis, a. young American, who chances
to ttc 5n Athens at the outbreak of the Greco
Turkieh -war, joins a filibustering expedition to
Crete. Tho IttUe -vessel Is -wrecked, but Curtis,
accompanied by Lieutenant Llndbohm, a sol
dier of fortune, and a native Cretan, MIchalL
reach the Island safely. They arrive at a vil
lage, and are cared for by the Inhabitants.
Curtis ha Injured his foot on a sea urchin.
Ho Is nursed by Panayota, the priest's daugh
ter. In a few days word comes of the advance
of tho Turks -under Kostakes toward tho town.

Kostakes plunders the town, taking the old
priest and Panayota along as prisoners. Cur
tis, representing himself as a newspaper cor
respondent, also accompanies the Turks. Kos
lakes has the old priest murdered. Curtis kills
two of the guards, wounds another, and es
capes with Panayota. They meet Llndbohm
and friends and attack the Ba?hl Bazouks, who
recapture Panayota. Curtis and Llndbohm each
discover that the other Is in love with the
Cretan captive. Kostakes now Imprisons her
1n his harem In Canea. and tri?s to persuade
her to marry him. The American and Swede
rejoin the Cretans and "assist in the capture of
a. blockhouse. The allied gunboats begin to
bombard the near-by fort.
Men, still running, were disappearing
into .the distant hills. The Swede and
the American were entirely alone. The
tor ships continued to launch their poly
"Are-they firing at us?' gasped Curtis.
"Xudglng Srom appearinces, I shou.d

Four Cretans had turned back and
were running toward the ruined block
house. One was tne colorbeaier of L..n
hohm's company, and he was carrying
the Greek flag. Straight up to the hous

"A flying piece of ck, probably," re

The bombardment did not last much
longer. The Greek flag was a..o
lrougnt down by a shot, which elicited
tinbounded admiration from the- Swede, a
hcll striking the corner of the house
where it was planted.
Curtis realized now for the first time
the peculiar fcensatlons of a soldier of
fortune. He had been risking his life
for that flag, yet he saw It rlred upon
without the thrill of horror and ra.se
which would have surgtd through his
heart had It been the American em Mom.
"They are shooting at the flig!" he ex
claimed, noticing that the ships in the
bay had become silent,
"Yust so," observed .Llndbohm; "and
that is why they commenced in the first
place. They mistook the Turkish officer's
shirt for the Greek flag. But here he
comes no a."
Hassan Bey was powdered as white a
a great moth. He advanced with a
eprlghtly step, the scabbard of his swn-d
jingling amCng the cctblc-stones. Grac
ing Lindbohm ispertit..iy wiii. a ir...:

bowed low, ls hand upon his -heart Ho
spoke as one who had hastily prepared
"Monsieur, in my ovn behalf and In
that of my little band, I thank you for

magnanimity do credit to the nation which

hands' his curved .scimitar in its rlcii.y

"Did I do that? I don't remember any
thing about it."
"Bettor take it," repeated Llndbohm.
'He is beginning to feel embarrassed."
Curtis accepted the scimitar, but could
not find appropriate words. The occasion
seemed to demand a set speech.
"Merd! Morel!" he stammered. "My
father will be glaM to get this. He is
fond of Uls sort of thing. He already

"What'll we do now?" asked Curtis.
Get the band together again?"
"To hell with the-band!" exploded Lind
bohm. "I'm sick of them. They fight all
right, but there's no way to enforce dis
cipline. I think Til go to America. There
should be some, beautiful fighting between
the Americans and Spaniards." and he
looked dreamily across the sea,
"Wc weren't nghting Kostakes, after
all," roused C- rI- ,
Llndbohm ce ... to earth with a start
and glanced tliarply after the slender,
erect figure f the departing Turk, whose
body was now cat off below the arms by
the ledge of rock.
'Mons4eur" shouted the Swede, and
atarted in pursuit. The Turk turned slow
ly and waitd.
"Monsieur will pardon me," said Lind
bohm, when he- had overtaken Hassan
Bey, "I wish to ask a question on be
half of ray friend here, which you will
nse your own discretion in answering.
Hassan bowed gravely.
"My friend is interested ln a young
Cretan girl. Panayota Nieolaides, whom
Kostakes offend! has abducted. We have
been following Kostakes. but he has dis

or the jrlrir

is why he was not here today with his

premise!. He caanot be depended on. He
passes half his time laying elege to the
affections of a sirl -who Is already In his
power. Bah! Kostakes Is no good. Ho
Is only half a man he Is half Greek."
Hassan had grown suddenly volubla.
Kostakes. with his Incomprehensible do
ings, was evidently a thorn In h flesh.
Rage, Indignation, pity, swooped down
upon Curtis like a flood, now hot, now
cold, as he thought of Panayota. re
strained In the house of that square
jawed, cruel, supercilious Turk, subject
to his -vile solicitations, perhaps -his In
sults. -"You do not think he would dare to do
her violence?" he cried, as the thought
that he knew where Panayota was and
might yet save her? seemed almost to lift
him from the ground.
"And why not?" demanded Hassan.
"But, bah!" (with IndescrlbaDle scorn).
"It Is the -Christian blood In him. I tell
you. He wants her to love him bah!"
Curtis' face was flushed and he was
trembling with eagerness. Llndbohm,
pale as death, was leaning acainst a rock,
biting his lip. A. bugle sang1 out sweet
and clear, in the distance.
"It is the Cretan trumpeter." remarked
the Turk. "So, "once more au revoir, and
a thousand, thousand thanks."
"I am done with the troop," said Llnd
bohm. "I cannot control them, and I am
a soldier. I will not fight where discipline
Is impossible. Ify friend and I wish to
go to Canea. "We we desire to take ship

"Then, come, with me." cried Hassan
gayly. "I will pass you through the lines,
and I may be able In seme way to prove
my gratitude to this gentleman who has
saved my life. Volla, we are cdmrade3i"
and stepping between Curtis and Llnd
bohm, he grasped each by the arm. Again
tho bugle sounded.

Kostakes had something of Importance
to ?ny to Panayota something unpleas

ance. The door to her room failed to open
at the first turning of the key. the lock
1 was o!d and worn, and the bolt did not
always respond. But Kostakes did not
calmly try sgcln, like a sane man. He
threw his weight petti lily against the un

slight degree, to his boiling passion, ho

I himself up with a jerk and stood glaring
had always seen him hitherto in a gentle
and persuasive mood, he seemed like a
man who had put oft a mask. Somehow
he did not frighten her. for his looks now
corresponded with her idea of his real
character; that scowling brow, those glar
ing eyes, that protruding under jaw trem
bling with rage, well befitted the murder
er of her father .and of her young com
panions, and the despoller of her home.
She was not afraid, because, with a wo
man's quick perception, she understood
that the passion which had taken pos
sessicn of her persecutor for the moment
was not the one most dangerous to her
honor, Deqth she did not fear; It was one
of the doors of escape which she counted
on to rid her of tho terrible risk which
she felt herself to be running every day
a danger more dreadful than death to a
Sphaklqte maiden and the daughter of a
priest. If Kostakes should come into her
room sometime when he was drunk! But
now he was only angry, seemingly speech
loss with rage. She had been peering
through the grating of her window watch
ing a rat that was running to and iro iff
the sunless court below; he was
so fat and his legs were so short that he
seemed to be sliding over the pave like
a toy mouse that her father had once
brought from Athens. When she first
heard Kostakes key in the lock she
grasped the iron bars to keep herself from
falling and, leaning against the wall, stood
looking at the door. And thus she stood
now. a smile of scorn faintly curling her
pale lip. Kostakes strode across tho room
and, seising her wrist, wrenched her hand
loose from the iron bar.
"You won't marry me, eh?" he said.
"Eh? I'm not good enough for you. eh?
I suppose I'm old, or ugly or you prefer
somebdy else? Is that it, eh? Well now
Tm going to tamo 5ou. Tou wouldn't have
me as a Christian, you shall have me as
a Turk. There aren't going to be any
more Christians, do you hear? Eh? Do
you hear? We're'golng to kill the whole
cursed brood of them. English, French,
Italians, Cretans. There won't be one left.
Islam is aroused. We'll cut their
throats" he" shouted, flinging the wrist
from him. and making an Imaginary slash
at his own neck. "Tho streets will run
blood. Every dog of an unbeliever in
Crete must die, men. women and children,
The blood of tho Turkish father had
prevailed, and Kostakes had been over
, whelmed with that form of religious mat
nia which cries fcr blood. He had joined
a band of youngVTurks, wrjo had planned
a. grand coup, to save Crete, and his Chris
tian love for Panayota was fast turning
Into Turkish love. It needed but a riot
of blood and rapine to make the change
"You would not have me as a Cbrls
tiaa,, he said, with his" naad oa tho door
knob; "this nisht you tehall take me as a
Turk," and he went out.
Panayota, being left alone again, was,
frightened, antlt Is proof of the girl's
nobility of soul that she thought not of
fcerself, but of her fellow Ohrlstians,
whom she believed to be in Imminent dan
ger. If ehe could only escape and give
them warning! But she dismissed that
thought, for she had tried every possible
means again and again. Sho might stand
at the window and scream, but she had
already done that, with 'no effect. Kos
takes' house was right in the center of
the Turkish quarter, and the screams of
a. hysterical or angry woman attracted
little attention. A girl shouting in Greek
for "boethia" (help) was a time-honored
legend of "Turkish rule; as old as Islam
and as natural as murder. Besides, her
window looked out against a blank wall,
'and her voice would be stifled in a closed
court. No, there was no use in shouting.
So, as a last resort, she fell upon her
kness and besought the Virgin to help
I and save the people-, to-pity the mothers-
and the little qhildren and to turn away
from them this danger. Now, while she
was praying, a conflict had been taking
place within the breast of Kostakes, at
which he felt the efrects,but of which
he was entirely unconscious. 'The blood
of h!s Greek mother had been making a
last stand against that of his Mahom-
metan father, ana while Tie" was even yet
breathing out curses against the Chris
tians and muttering, "She shall 'have me
as a Turk," he turned. about automat
ically, as it were, and retraced his steps
to Panayota's room. The girl rose from
"I am praying the Holy Virgin to "save
my people," she said In a solemn tone.
Her eyes were streaming with tears. Kos
takes shuddered, and Involuntarily raised
his arm, restraining hirrs'f with dlllicul
ly fiom making the !gn of tho .crotfi.
This virgin of hJ.s iso'hr could be a very
terrible beimr when angry.
"Panayota.'" he sa'd, ' I I v n3 too rou'h

But the virgin had comforted Panay
ota and given her courage. She pointed
superbly to the door.
"Go," she cried, "Ocd will save hti
people without this sacrific;. He will
not connive at the pollution of a Chr.'fi

Kostakes went to the bazar of his
friend, Mchercet Effcndi. Mehemet was

partner was a blackbearded, pale-faced
Persian, 40 years of age, who wore a blue
vest, blue troupers that were full about
the hiss and tight at the ankles, carpet
slippers and a redfes. Hassan Ben Sab
bath was a Mahometan by profession. But
his belief was colored and weakened by
the secret lnfluencerof an ancient relig
ion. His soul was haunted by the unrecog
nisable ghosts of the dead gods of Mar
donis and MaslstiUs, Ho was prudent in
business and mildly deprecatory In speech.
Tho bazar into which' Kostakes now
walked was a tiny-room, fronting on the
kaleidoscopic square. The greater portl6n
of Its stock was piled Jn tho cipscl us w'n
dows. brass candlesticks, Cretan knives
and revolvers, Byzantine silver jewelry,
antique earthenware, Turkish and Per
sian embroideries. Theonly furniture con
sisted of a round-topped wooden table,
Inlaid with mother-of-pearl, that stood in
the middle of the floor; a divan and a cou
ple of chairs. Side by side upon the wall.
In cheap frames, hung the sad, cruel,
blase faces of Abdul Hamld and the latest
successor of Xerxes.
Mehemet was standing under his awh
Ing watching the 'shifting throng, and
occasionally casting expectant glances at
the bay. His eyes were bright and his
face was pair from nervousness.
"Any news Kostakes? Any news?" ho
demanded in a cautious tone. Kostakes
made no reply, but Hinging himself into
ono of the chairs Inside the shop, began
to beat a lively tattoo with his riding whip

had been pretending to sleep on the di
van, rose to a sitting position and yawned.
"Don't betray your feelings so," said
Mehemet; "tho hour when tho faithful

ing the whip crack on his boot top like a
pistol shot. "! want to see the throats

"Now, Kosta, Kosta, In the namef of

the door and looking to right and left. -

"Merciful Allah! If you should be

Kostakes. "Thy don't appreciate kind

"I have treated her with the greatest

And rising to his full height he smote

"Never mind, never mind," said Mehe
met, "you shall have your house full of
Christian girls tomorrow."
"I've offered to. make her the head of
my harem, to to do everything In fact,
but still she Is obstinate. Oh, I am
through wltH H'naues's now. This Is a
fine state of society when it Is possible
for a Christian slut to despise a Turkish
gentleman and an officer to boot!"
Under ordinary circumstances some of
Mehemet's Christian neighbors would
have heard Kostakes raving from afar,
and would have stolen near. At the
present moment, however, the crttlre
population of the square was surging
down to the water's, edge watching an
English ship that was rapidly and noise
lessly sliding Into the harbor. Evident
ly 'it had been expected, and its mission
on this occasion was supposedly favor
able to the Christians, for they were
noisily jubilant, and addressed many fa
cetious but Insultlnjr remarks to their"
rMahommetan neighbors. Tho latter re
mained silent arid gazed at the approach
ing vessel with scowling eyes.
"Here It comes!" cried Hassan from
tho door, as the masts and funnels of
the Hazard suddenly drifted Into the
background, above the heads of tho
throng. Mehemet grabbed Kostakes by
the arm and dragged him to the door.
"See there!" he cried, forgetting all re
straint. "There comes the disgrace of
Islani, rny brother they have, como to
enslave us. Those English are Chris
tians, 'and they hate us. But your time
has come, dogs, your time has come!"
and he shook his flst toward the ship.
"But In the name of Allah!" expostu
lated Hassan. "Those English are our
' best customers. Only yesterday 1 .sold a
piece of Rhodes embroidery to an Eng
lish Lieutenant for four times Its value.
And we .can't fight the English; they,

again resorting to Greek. "But he

"','Now you're talking sensibly," inter
rupted "Hassan, admiringly. "There's a
way and a time to do all things of

Tho metallic burr of the chain, pay

The sharp, clear tones of an English
officer couid be heard. ind the rattle of
oars as they wore unshipped and boajed
by the crow of the man-of-war's boat.
Th crowd at the wharf sursred back
with jn-oans -r.d cheer. But the wharf
was not destined to be tho chief center
of attraction. The scrannel drone of a
borrnipe sounded faintly in the d'stance,
and grew rapidly more djstince. a wav
ing thread of sound that ,led the meas
ured tre-d of mrny feet, marching to
quickstep, out of the silence and nearer,
nearer. The three Mohammetans fixed
their eyes upon the opening of a street
that debouched not far away into tho
square. The lngplpe turned the corner
and its defiant wnll came straight to
their ears. The thrpng at the wharf
turned and looked, then turned back,
again, like the distracted spectator at a
modern circus, where the prodigality of
attractions prevents the enjoyment of
any. But they were not lonnr In doubt as
to tho principal attraction, for the street
ejected from its mouth at that moment
the most devll-may-cnre, picturesque,
obstreperous, robust, business-like com

gaunt, awkward Scot, whose projecting
kneecaps played In front of tho sinewy
knees like rounc sh!el8s. On he fared,
with chest thrust out, and face thrust
up. squeezing the bag between his
brawny arm and letting cut its protest
ing squeals In the notes of "Bonnie
Prince Charlie." Behind him at a dis
tance came a small body of Seaforth
Highlanders, and a few bluejackets,
bound straight for; tho custom-house.
The throng scrambled out of the way to
right and left, as though from a bayonet
charge. In fact, the natives did not
wait for the troops, but molted away
before the flaming countenance of Tamas
One of Kostakes Bashl Bazouk3, a
great, splendid fellow, with a blue and
yellow turban about his head, and a
gaudy sash about his waist, in yellow
Cretan boots and blue Cretan breeches,
of a baggy sort, appeared beneath Me
hemet's awning and salaamed.
"Your men are going up to the Custom
House." he said.
Kostakes was fretting to and fro In
the shop like a big lion in a small cage.,
gnawing his. upper lip, twitching at his
mustache. Every moment his passion
grew, and the snorts, of indignation be
came more and more frequent.

The Captain whirled about with a jerk
and glared at the speaker.
"Well, what do you want?"

face was purple, and his eyes looked un

"Your men, I said, are going to the

the man, smiling grimly, and laying blB

sneered Kostakes, standing In the door.
He had passed Into one of those periods
of calm which manifest themselves In
violent ebullitions of rage, like the fear
ful silences between thunder claps.
Mehemet pointed. The British troops
and the marines wore drawn up In front
of the Custom-House. Red jackets and
gleaming helmet-tlps on one side; bare
'Jfeees1 in a row of kilts, and little cap3
With frisking tails on the other. Numer
