of course,' the cause of Mr. Royce's
breakdown and turned to me when the
consultation was ended and bis col
league had taken his departure.
"Mr. Lester," he said, "I advise you
to go home and get some rest Put this
case out of your mind or you'll be
right where Mr. Itoyce Is. He had some
more bad news, I suppose?"
I told him of Miss Holladay's disap
pearance. He pondered over it a mo
ment with grave face.
"This strengthens my belief that she
is suffering with dementia," he said.

"I'm going to find her," I assured
him, with perhaps a little more confi
dence than I really felt.
"Well, remember to call on me if I
can help you. But, first of all, go
home and sleep for ten hours twelve,
if you can. Mind, no work before that
no building of theories. You'll be
bo much the fresher tomorrow."
I recognized the wisdom of this ad
vice, but I had one thing to do first
I took a cab and drove to the nearest
telegraph office. There I sent an Im
perative message to Brooks, the Holla
llay coachman, telling him to return
to New York by the first train and
report to me at the ofliee. That done,
I gave the driver my address and set

she really mentally deranged? Had

me till thought failed and I lay back
"Here we are, sir," said the driver.
Jumping down from his seat and jerk
ing open the door.
I paid him and went stumbling up
the steps. I have no doubt he was
grinning behind me. As I fumbled
with my key some one opened the door
from the Inside.
"Why, Mistair Lester!" exclaimed
Martigny's voice. "What Is It? You
have no illness, I hope!"
"No," I murmured, "I'm Just dead
tired," and I started blindly for the

arm and helped me up, then went on

He sat quietly down opposite me,
and, weary as I was, I was conscious
of his keen eyes upon me.
"We heard from Miss Holladay this
morning," I remarked, unconsciously
answering their question.
He did not reply for a moment, but
I had closed my eyes again, and I
was too tired to open them and look
"Ah!" he said in a voice a little
hoarse. "And she is well?"
"No. She's disappeared."
"I mean she's run away," I said,
waking up a little.
"And she has informed you"
"Oh, no. We've Just found it out
She's been gone ten days."
"And you are going to search for
her?" he questioned carelessly, after
"Yes. I'll begin In the morning."
Again there was a moment's silence.
"Ah!" he said, with a curious In
Then he arose and left me to tumble
incontinently Into bed.
TIRED nature asserted herself
and took the 'full twelve hours,
but I felt like another man
when I left the bouse next
morning, and I was eager to grapple
anew with the mystery. I found two
reports awaiting me at the ofliee. Mr.
Royce had passed a "good night and
was better; the clerks who had spent
the afternoon before in visiting the
stables had as yet discovered nothing,
and were continuing their search.
I looked up a time card of the Long
Island railroad and found that Miss
Holladay's coachman could not reach
the city until 930; so I put on my hat
again, sought a secluded table at Wal
lack's, and over a cigar and stein of
bock drew up a resume of the case
to clear the atmosphere, as It were. It
ran something like this:

There I stopped. The last entry
brought me up to date. There was
nothing more to add. But It seemed
Impossible that all the developments
of this mystery should have taken only
a month. For years, as it seemed to
me, I had thought of nothing else.
I looked over the schedule again
carefully. There was only one opening
that I could see where it was possible
to begin work with the hope of accom
plishing anything. That was in the
very first entry. Miss Holladay had
driven to Washington square; she had,
I felt certain, visited her sister; I must
discover the lodging of this woman.
Perhaps I should also discover Frances
Holladay there. In any event I should
have a new point to work from. . .
The police had been over the ground,
I knew. They had exhausted every re
source in the effort to locate Mr. . Hol
laday's mysterious visitor and . had
found not a trace of her. But that fact
did not discourage me, for I hoped to
start my search with information
which the police had not possessed.
Brooks, the coachman, should be, able
to tell me ,' '
Recalled suddenly to remembrance
of him, I looked at my watch and, saw
that It was past his hour. I was pleas
ed to find him awaiting me when I
opened the office door three minutes
later. I had only a tew questions to
ask him. .
"When your mistress left the. car
riage the day you drove her to Wash-,
lngton square did you notice . which
street she took after she left the,
"Yes, sir; she went on down West
Broadway." - .. . -
"On which side?" ,, , :u.
Th' left hand side, sir; th' east side."
"She must have crossed the street to
get to that side." . ...
"Yes, sir; she did, I noticed , per-,
tie'lar, for I thought it . funny she
shouldn't 've let me drive her on down
th' street to wherever she was goinY
It's a dirty place along there, sir.'.
"Yes, I know. - When you drove her
out on the 28th the day she brought
back the maid where did she go?"
"Tt Washington square again, 8lr.M
"And left you waiting for her?" ,
Yes,' sir; Just th same." . ; .
' "And went down the same street?"
"Yes, sir; crossed to th' east side
Just th' same as th' time before."
"How long was she gone?" ;J
"Over an hour, sir; ah hour an' a
half, I should say." "
"Did you notice anything unusual In
her appearance when she tame back?
"No, .sir; Bhe was fwearin ;a heavy
veil. She had th' other' womanp with
her, an she just said 'Home!' in adtind
o' hoarse voice as I helped them, into
That was all that he could tell one,
and yet I felt that it would help me
greatly. In the first place, it narrowed
my investigations to the district lying
to the east of West Broadway, and I
knew that the French quarter extended
only a block or two In that direction.
And, again, it gave me a point to insist
on In my inquiries I knew the date
upon which the mysterious woman had
left her lodging, or, at least I knew
that it must be one of two dates. The
lodging had been vacated, then, either
on the 28th of March or the 3d of April.
As a last resource I '. had the photo
graph. I was ready to begin my search
and dismissed Brooks, warning him to
say nothing to any one about the mys
As I passed out the door to the pave
ment I happened to glance across the
way, and there, in the crowd of bro
kers who always line the street, I
perceived Martigny. He was listening
intently to one of the brokers, who
was talking earnestly In his ear tell
ing him how to make his fortune, I
suppose and did not see me. For ait
instant I was tempted to cross to him
and get him out of danger. Then I
smiled at the absurdity of the thought.
It would take a clever man to fleece
Martigny, and I recalled his strong
face, his masterful sir.- He was no fool,
no lamb ready for the shears. He was
perfectly able to look out for himself
to wield the shears with power and ef
fect M need be.
I turned west toward Broadway,
still, I suppose, thinking of him sub
consciously, for a few moments later
some Irresistible impulse caused me
to glance around, and there he was
walking after me on the opposite side
of the street! Then In a flash I un
derstood. He was following me!
It is difficult to describe the shock
that ran through me, that left me
numbed and helpless. For an Instant
I stumbled on, half dazed; then grad
ually my self control came back and
with it a certain fierce Joy, a hot exul
tation. Here at last was something
definite, tangible, a clew ready to my
hand, if only I were clever enough to
follow It up; a ray of light in the dark
ness. I could feel my cheeks burning
and mv heart leaDins at the. tbousht.
