A BLACK ROBED MAN
Oue November night some years ngo,
soon after 1 bad been called to the bar,
I dined with some filends. It was
shortly after the close of the last Car-
list war, and 1 was employed in an Im
portant ease In which the liberty uud
probably the life of u distinguished
Carlist leader were at stake. This gen
tleman was a relative of my mother,
and. ni>nrt from my yourlifnl enthusi
asm for my profession, 1 was devoting
o j my time and every scrap of energy
I possessed to his Interests.
Now. the fuet that I had been dining
oyt will no doubt be seized upon by
skeptical persons, and to their minds
will probably explain all the circum
stances that I am now going to set
t own. 1 can only state most solemnly
that when they occurred 1 was never
more in tuy sober senses.
It was long past midnight when I
look leave of my friends. As I passed
along 1 had the street almost to my
self. uud I paced briskly, enjoying the
uiglit air. Suddenly, though I heard
no sound of footsteps, the sensation
came to me that some oue was walking
behind me. 1 glanced around and saw
the figure of u man walking on the
outside of the pavement about six
paces In my rear.
He was tall and clad in a long black
cloak, the end of which was thrown
over his right shoulder In the Spanish
fashion and in such a manner as to
conceal the lower half of his face. A
broad black sombrero was crushed
down over his brows and from be
neath its brim nothing but the tip of a
thin white nose was visible. His ap
pearance at once brought my mind
back to the case on which i was en
gaged, and I could not help wondering
whether this figure, which looked so
singular In its Spanish costume in the
streets of London, was not in some
way connected with It.
As I walked on I began to be some
what uneasy. There were so few peo
ple about 1 thought of assassination.
I knew the murderous nature of the
“ Navaja," and I was defenseless, not
having even the protection of a stick.
Then again. I reflected^ it might be
that this man was some compatriot of
my client, who wished to make some
communication to me, but If so, why
did he not approach? I felt he was
still behind me, although his foot made
no sound on the curb.
Not relishing the close attendance of
the mysterious stranger. I crossed over
to the other side of the street, where,
at least. I would be better able to ob-'
serve his motions, but before I bad
got half wuy across I was aware that
he had also left the pavement and was
following me at the same distance as
before. All this was sufficiently singu
lar and perturbing, for I now felt cer- !
tain that the man was following me. ,
To make quite certain I presently
crossed the street again, and. sure j
enough, there was my pursuer at the
same distauce at my heels.
I now resolved to take action, and,
turning myself sharply around, I ask
ed him wlmt he desired of me. To my
