Tno visit nf Mr. Franz threw no
new light on the "Wayne murder mys
tery. As to the disappearance of Bet
ty Lancey and of tho Man-Aperllla
these riddles were still at their baffling
inception. The police found them
selves up against a polygonal enigma
The murder of Cerlsso Wayne; the
Identity and whereabouts of Hamley
Hackleye; the unparallelod resem
blance between Mrs. Harcourt and
Mrs. Wayne; the dlsappearanco of
Betty Lancey; and tho appearance
s.nd disappearance of the
ail surrounding the death
Lrfxrry Morris grew thin and gaunt
as tho days passed on, and no tidings
came from the missing Betty. Har
court's wife had boon taken to a sani
tarium and Harcourt was held In Jail
pending her recovery and tho clear
ance of the mystery. The copy of the
letter Harcourt had made was pro
nounced by experts to bo a disguised
hand, and the signature of Harold
Harcourt on the hotel reglstor was
found to be almost Identical with the
formation of the Initials H. H. append
ed to tho letters found among tho ef
rects of the dead Cerlsso Wayno
Opinion was dlvldod among various
speculations and some thought that
Harcourt had killed Mrs. Wayne, other
theorists held that Harold Harcourt
and Hamley Hackleye were the same;
others still, that Harcourt had been
masquerading as Hackleye, and In .that
way explained the vanishing of Hack
ieye. This left still unaccounted for
the abduction of Betty and the mys
tery of the Man-Aperllla.
Larry Morris persistently held to it
that it was only right that an expedi
tion should be fitted up and sent to
Africa to soo if there might be ny
further clews picked up there. His
paper laughed at him, and one editor.
who guessed the condition of Larry's
heart, called him a "lovesick fool.
i-Jirry fumed until one night late In
August he had a dream about Betty,
He saw her In a Jungle, amidst a horde
of llbyans and hideous black men. And
she was standing there stretching out
her hands to him. Her voice, thick
with pain, called out to him. "Larry!
Oh, Larry!" That settled Larry Mor
ris. He threw up his Job tho very next
day, and with Johnny Johnson In tow
left for New York. Flvo days later
Larry had made a tie-up with a press
syndicate to go to Africa, along with
Johnny Johnson, and see what could
be done towards tracing out that end
of the tale. They had no charts, noth
ing but a few half obliterated post
mams torn from letters found In the
safety deposit box kept with Double
day, Franz & Co., but on these Larry
was pinning much faith. It was the
mustard seed ho hoped would move a
grasp from which oscapo was lmpossl
bio, endurance intolerable.
Sho glanced at the heap of draperies
by tho sldo of tho couch, watched the
swing and sway of tho room about her,
and tried to gather her tortured senses
together. Betty Lancoy had novor had
any imagination, but she was possessed
always with tho polso of six men and
the common sense of a dozen. Sho ex
amined her hands carefully, and found
them without scratch or bruise. She

sciousness and the world of things as
mortals think they see them, with a
most monstrous smell of sulphur chok
ing her. As nearly as she could distin
guish the room was filled with glass
globes the circumference of a fair
sized musk-melon, and every globe was
a-twltter with lemon yellow or pale
violet lights, bathing tho room with
odd sputtered flashes.
Realities reverted slowly. Betty
made out a celling, domelike and cor
rugated, later a floor, and eventually
descried that she was nestling on a
couch piled BOft and easy with pun
gent pillows. Barely had she discern
ed these facts when a swaddled per
sonage confronted her. It was tall
and garbed in sombre swatchings that
left the outlines of its great bulk all
"Ah, that Is better," came tho gut
ural comment, "do you wish more
"No, indeed," she expostulated. "I
didn't wish any in tho first place. Why
did you give lt to me7 Where am
The being answered with a shrug,
"Pray, calm yourself, my dear Miss
Lancey. I only trust tho machlna
tlons of this electrical apparatus will
not disturb you too much. Do be quiet!
Do not excite yourself unduly."
"Oh, but who aro you? Where am
I? And why 7" asked Betty. "There's
such a rushing In my head, such
sounding In my ears, and that swish
and swash of watei' what does It all
mean? Am I delirious or dreaming?'
"You've been both," replied the flg.

for I am the unhapplost In all the
world! My baptismal name was Fran

The llgure sunk in a heap. Above
the sputterjngs of the electrical ap
paratuses Betty could distinguish the
swirl of waves, and the surge of deep
water. She tried to rise but was too
weak, and reclined once moro upon
her pillows. Vainly she endeavored to
recall what had passed before, Event
after event raced through her brain.
She remembered dimly as a child
traces back the progress of an evil
dream the Incidents of her last waking
hours. The Inquest of Cerlsse Wayne,
the scene In the Directory Hotel, the
quest for the papers, her attempt to
Interview the mysterious woman, and

and wound the braids loosely around
her fevered head. "I'm going to take
you up on deck, now. Mr. Francis says
you need the air."
Tall and strong as Betty once had
been the giant negress picked her up
as If she had been a little girl, and
boro her to the upper deck and placed
her In a luxuriously arranged steamer
The glare of the sun on the water
hurt Betty's eyes terribly, but the salt
breeze refreshed her and the relief
from the smell of sulphur and the
sputterings of tho electrical flashes
was unbounded. The surface of the
water was unwrlnkled and sea and sky
were Joined without a visible seam at
the Juncture. The craft on which she
was sailing was the oddest Betty had

into a aream or wild unrest Once it
