took a car down-town, and visited Km

What he might have done, had Mr.

to guess, but on reaching the iloor upon

he walked to tho glass do.ir and iioIIch1
that another name was painted Usm Ik
Inquiry from tho Janitor elicited the In
formation that the firm of limerick .t
Co. was no longer in existence. Percy
was now utterly at his wits' end and
battled, lie knew not how to move and
could form no definite plan ot action.
IJvory thing seemed to be working
against him. The DelaroN and Mr.
Wilcox '(It must lo remembered he
know nothing of his obi friend's death)
in Kurope; limerick, be knew not where;
himself wandering alone In New York;
what should he do? lie rotroeod his
steps up-town, engaged rooms at a hotel
and sal down lo consider.
'What is the use of going to Kurope?"
hi thought "I might nover Hud them;
and yet I can nut skty hero alone." Why
he did not at once repair to Mr. Wil
cox's lawyers ho could noor afterwards
explain, but ho did nut do so. After
many hours of consideration he resolved
lo take llio first steamer to Kurope.

room and taking from his valise the

L contained an Insignificant Portuguese
slher coin with n small hulu Wired

between thu hole and the edge of Iho
coin had worn away. Indicating that
tho coin had doubtless fallen from
whatever It had originally suspended
from probably Mr. limerick's watch
chain. Inclosed with the coin was a
lllllo note, which read: "Kxumlne tho j
edge ot this coin all round." I
Percy did ho, and noticed that in one j
part the milling hud been tiled or i
ground llak and on the smooth edge
was a monogram executed In so minute
a manner thai without a microscope'
ll would be Impossible to distinguish '
thu letters. i
Not having a microscope in his pos- 1
session Ian el borrowed one from an
olllcer ot the ship and again retired to1
bis state-room lo further examine the j
curiosity. Applying tho microscope, he
gazed intently for a moment and, droi- !

These anil similar thoughts crowded
Percy's brain a they Milled through
the heavy mist hanging over the Mer

the great sea-port but n few hours, he
went direct lo liudoii. One might have
supposed that he would havo sought the

"The llrsl step will havo to ls taken

So they ptirbsl on this understanding,

ho did as his father had suggested, lie
told her that bo had mado a great mis

continue to tmprow himself under her

Armida gladly consentis! nnd be was
once more welcomed to the Delaro clr-
lie did not again see bis father for
several days, and was therefore unable
to report, but fortune favored his plans '
and one afternoon when Kugene was
feigning hard study with Armida. Mr.
lllodgcr came bouncing Into the room i
and announced that he was going to see j
the matinee performance at the Wild j
West show and Invited them all to ac
company him. Armida at once accepted ;
the invitation and budid her mother, but '
Kugene made the excuse that bis heal I
"All the more reason why you should
go," said lllodgor. "It will drlvo your

.Still Kugene would not bo persuadisl
and Armida put It down tosiilkiness.
The excursion was not to be spoiled,
however, by bis refusal. Mrs. Delaro
suggestisl that tie should slay at homo
and "keep house," a sho playfully
termed Ik This was exactly what Ku
gene wanted, nilit nothing couiu nave

to a i lose. After It was over the origin
ator of lk lieu, liullalo Hill, held one
of hi , e. lul.r.lted receptions, while the
visitors interested themselves In exam
ining the tenia of the Indians, the buck
lug bronchos and all the paraphernalia
of the Wild West.
At last when overy thing had boon
seen Mr Iliodger and his rty turned
to go. As they did son illsturbaucn sud
denly took place near where tiny stood
and two men could bo seen struggling
on the ground. The one seemed many
yean younger than the other and he
was evidently holding on to tho older
man with an cmbra-e which he Intended
should be lasting. With true Kugllsh
Instinct thu crowd gathered around the
two men to boo the light, but when they
noticed thu disparity in ago they mur
mured: ".Shame! Shame!" Still nobody
tried to part them until a burly hIIco
maii pushed bis way through tin- crowd
and endeavored to part the combatants.
With the help of a bystander he raised
the struggling men to their feet, but
still the younger man held on und
would not loosen his hold.
"1 will no', let him gu," he cried.
The iionplo thought him

first It scorned to Iki only a
Miuuhblo, but the onlookers soon noticed
that each of the men wore well dre-tsed
und then they knew that somethlri r
more serious than a momentary iuarrel
must lie the cause of the disturbance.
The younger man who cried out so loud
ly was Hushed and hot; his cheeks and
neck were red as fast Hon tug blood
could make thorn; but tho elder man
was pallid with the sickly hue of death.
This was only the commencement of
tho trouble, however. The crowd had a
delectable treat In sUire for thorn. Mrs.

with a tragic air. she exclaimed In Joy

A iiioineiit later the policeman took

and Mrs. Delaro nud Percy were In

Tho entire party then relumed to the
hotel together. Mr. lllodgor, who was
considerably uiystlllcd nnd wished to

had to take his heavy-weight son along

When they were once more sealisl In
