delicate fingers clinched convulsively upon
the arm of the chair.
Do not ask me, monsieur. My duty
Is plain. If you will not spare us, I

"You cannot mend matters," persisted
the detective, "by staying here. My men

vsevertneiess, I will uo what I enn

something to you to save your own name,
would It not?"
She glanced through the portiere glv
ing ingress to the salon beyond, where
Jules Cliabot was just visible as he sat
nt the end of the long card table. His
face was deadly pale. He whispered
from time to time with Goldstein, the
broker. Her face flushed for an instant
"What do you nienn?" she ejaculated
"I am armed, madame. Take this pis

They had stepped unconsciously to the
door of the conservatory. The detective
turned and took her hand. His expres
sive face was aglow with some profound
"You have proved yourself worthy,"
he said. "The courage and devotion you
have displayed In your hour of trial have
given you a right to your reward."
"What do you mean, monsieur?"
"Come here," he said, suddenly, "come
with me. I will tell you something you
never knew. Something that has come to
me as from the dead, to tell you that
your instincts have erred, and you have
been made the play of cruel, designing
He drew her hand within his arm and
led her to the conservatory. They sat
down upon the same scat where he had
conversed with the Vlcomtesse de Valiar.
"We shall not be interrupted here. I
will tell you a story if you care to listen
"Go on, monsieur," she murmured.
"The story," began the detective, "is
of a young lady, a countrywoman of
yours. It was years ago that this thing
happened. She was quite handsome, very
young, very romantic and foolish. When
she was eighteen years of age she met
on American. He also was young, hand
some, but dissolute and entirely unwor
thy of her love."
Mme. Colbert-Remplin Inclined her
head almost Imperceptibly. She was list
ening to the history of her own life. How
bad this man brought to light the secrets
of the past which had, years ago, as she
believed, been hidden by the lapse of
"Yielding to the American's importu
nities, this young lady contracted with
Jiim a secret marriage. The result of
their union was a child a boy. The
marriage was concealed successfully
from the young woman's parents. By
tho connivance q a friend and a pre
tended visit to the country, its conse
tyueuces were also kept secrt't. Shortly
after the birth of her child the young
woman returned to Paris, where she at
tracted the attention of a very rich bank
er, who, ignorant of her past history,
sought to make her his wife. It was
more than probable that the lady would
not have yielded to the temptation which
was thrust before her but for two things,
first, the discovery that her unsound was
a worthless, faithless fellow, second, the
importunities of her parents, who at that
time sustained some financial reverses. It
apiwars that the banker held her fath
er's obligations for an enormous amount.
A condition of the marriage was that her
parent should be n'ieased. A divorce was
secretly secured from the first husband."
"Yes. It was to save my father," murmured-
Mme. Colbert Remplin.
Hp went on :
"There was a little boy, as I have said,
the fruit of this unhappy young woman's
union with the American. This child
was given out to a nurse to take care 'of.
She was the wife of a loutish. Industrious
peasant, and of a peasant family herself,
but she was beautiful for ail that, an
some of those women are. The American
fell in love with her. He was called
away to the United States and was absent
three years. In his absence f-oraething
"What had happened?" murmured the
woman beside him.
"The child entrusted t the woman's
enre had died. On the American's re
turn to France, she presented her own
child In its place. Her husband was
dead. There was no one to contradict
A great sigh went up from the heart of

My son is dead. How have you learned
"Madame Ln Seur, who hns blackmail
pd you systematically, two days ago met
with a fatal accident. Unable to see you,
ahe sent you iu her last moments a full
confession of tho impositiou she had so
long practiced upon you and Implored
your forgiveness. This was taken by her
messenger to the gate where you usually
received her, and was promptly seized by
one of my men. Here U the confession,
from which you will learn that Philip
Graham, whom you firmly believed to be
your own son, is in reality the son of
tho peasant woman, who was the nurse
of your own child, and whom Henry Gra
"Hut the extraordinary resemblance!
Ah! I see it nil now. Henry Graham
was his father! It was easy to deceive
both lilm and nie."
"Exactly, and others have been equally
deceived. Though Madame La Seur, nnd
not yourself, was the mother of the boy,
yet Henry Graham waB his father. His
facial characteristics and peculiarities
are wonderfully reproduced In the person
of kia son. There U but little remaining
to be told. For yourself, you have nnth
ing to fear. This secret is known to mo
nione. I promise you It shall be keut
inviolate. Hut In case the tics of long
iiaoit or old association of ideas should
soften you townrd this man, whom, up to
a few minutes ago, you believed to be
your own son, let me tell you one thing.
Even you will then admit that the courso
ot justice should be no lomrer staved."
"What do you mean? I nm aware that
If recaptured he is liable to be returned
to prison. Is there aught else?"
The detective leaned forward and laid
his hnger on her arm.
"Did you ever hear of the Roupell mur
der at the Chateau Villeneuve?"
"To bo Bure I did; allParis wos ring
ing with it."
"A defenseless woman, honored, resnect
ed, beloved, was ruthlessly murdered in
ner own home.
The murderer of Madame Roupell was
rump L,a Seur, alias Philin Graham."
He left her nnd went hurriedly to the
door of the conservatory and passed
ttence into the outer salon. Jules Cha-
bot came toward him smiling.
"We hove been looking for you. Mon
8ieur Lazare. De Valiar is nlavine in

my revenge, I hope."
"To any amount," replied the Swiss.
and passing through the fashionable
throng which surrounded the players, he
seated himself at the card table.
It was past three o'clock. The cordon
of men in plain clothes which completely
surrounded the house of the Vicomte de
Valiar began to grow impatient. The
first streaks of dawn were alreadv visible
in the east.
A few of the guests, among them the
Lolbert-Remplius, had left some time be
fore. But the majority lingered In the
inner salon watching with breathless in
terest the progress of a game the like of
which none of them bad ever before wit

for the stakes had been increased enor
mously. Those four were Ilerr Goldstein,
Jules Chubot, the Vicomte de Valiar and
the Swiss millionaire. The faces of the
combatants, for they were nothing else,
afforded an interesting study. The coun
tenance of each painfully reflected the
ntense anxiety of that moment.
Two hundred and twenty-five" thousand
francs lay on the table. No one would
yield and there was a call for yet an
other increase. Herr Goldstein, with a
sigh, folded Lis cards before him with
bis enormous, trembling hands.
'7 avail myself of the privilege," he
said, "And withdraw."
Jules Chabot, who acted as banker,
then handed the broker thirty-thousand
francs. It was half of his original stake;
the other half of which lay 011 the table.
"This brings our pool down pretty low,"
said the vicomte. "I raise it another
twenty-five thousand francs."
Thp other two players then each placed
twenty-live thousand francs in the pool.
The spectators could not but notice the
excessive excitement of Jules Chabot. His
hands also trembled nervously. He held
good cards, but If the betting continued
h must inevitably drop out.
"1 think it is my turn to call." he said
at last. "I have my choice; I challenge
you. Monsieur I-azare."
He put down his curds and spread them
out before him, the vicomte, according
to the rules of the game, turning his
head so that he could not tee what cards
either of his adversaries held.
When he again turned to the table
Jules Chabot had left it and M. Lazare
was sitting calmly awaiting him, with a
huge heap of notes and gold at his side.
It was Jules Chabot's share of the pool,
which by right of his superior hand hail
missed into M. Lazare's possession. The
vicomte was at loss just exactly what to
do at that moment, lie knew the kind of
a hand he held was so good there were
but two other combinations which could
beat it. Was 'it .possible that the man
opposite him held such a combination?
Or was he simply trying to frighten him
into sharing the heavy stakes?
A moment's reflection decided him on
his coursp. He had left nearly one hun
dred and fifty thousand francs as yet nn
staked. He would bet every sou of this;
Ierhaps M. LazAre would be unable to
cover his bets, nnd according to the rules
of the game lie was compelled to do so
or cease playing, for the game was what
was known as an unlimited one. He look
ed his opiKHiPiit sternly In the-fye. He
thought he discerned signs of weakening.
"Do you wish to divide, monsieur?"
"Certniuly not I" caw the quiet an
swer. "I am prepared to back my hand.
It's your bet."
"I bet fifty thousand francs."
"I raise you one hundred thousand
francs," and he placed that sum ulso on
This sepmed to stagger tho Frenchman.
It was the Inst money the detective had,

The Frenchman arose from tha table.
"Monsieur will excuse me for a mo
ment," lie said. "I do but go to an inner
room to get Home more money."
He shortly reappeared, making his way
through the dense nnd excited throng
around the table, with a huge bundle of
notes in his hand. They were different
from nny which lay on the table; they
were of tho currency of the second em
pire. The detective's eye glistened as lie
looked at them and his heart beat quick
