As the Furgeon upoke he hastily
opened a small leathern case ht) car
ried with him, and from thnnco he
took a powerful emetic. The wo
man was sent for, and when aha
crime fho obtained warm water. Tha
potion was given, a small quantity
ut a time, at intervals of about five
mi nut c3 until the desired, effect was
produced. A strange mass of atoll
was thrown up, and Kopani took it
to tho light and examined it. Moat
of it was of dark, brownish color,
but with streaks of yellow and
coarno blotches of red and green.
The yellow substance was of a mu

cpokc he moved to the sideboard and
mixed on antidote. But ho did not
give it until the invalid had vomited
all ho could.
"Hold!" cried Burlo as tha Bur
geon took up the wine to mix tha
antidote with. "Touch not a thing
here. Perhaps the villain has poi
soned them alii"
"So it may bo," Kopani said, act-
ting down the bottle, lie then turn

as roon as he was sure the invalid
would sleep, "rill you remain here

Tlie gunmaker gladly consented

Half an hour had the gunmaker

gentle opening of tlio door, lie turn
ed and beheld a human form emerg

watcher started, for ho beheld tho

whispered, shading his eyea and try

By this time our hero had so far

by tha villain's entrance that ha
could be calm.

bed. Ha! The gunmaker!"
"Yes," replied tho youth, watch
ing every look and movement of the
feJiow most closely.

should say," Savotano whispered,
not looking the young man directly
in the face, but casting upon him a
alilelong glance, as though lie dared
not look direct.

into no conversation with the man

Kara a right to know wherefore is
tha presence of one bearing the pe
culiaf relations toward him which
are sustained br you."
Ruric'a first impulse was one of
disgust and wrath, but he managed
to I teep It to himself.
"Sir priest," ha returned, moving
hi chair noiselessly nearer to the
visitor, ao that his whisper might
not disturb tha sleeper, "I heard

would not have him die without first

Thus peaking Savotano aroso

betrayed some anxious purpose. Ho

looked back, but he did not speak.
Burio was afraid he might go to the
sideboard to look at too medicine,
but be did not lie simply catt one
more glance at the watcher and then
left the room.
In half an hour more the surgeon
