A 4 W
men be went down, me uoor no
found ft stout man wrapped up in,
fun, while close by stood a sledge
with two horses attached to it. In
tho cast the golden tints of morn
were already visible.
"A gunnuiker named Novel lives
hero, docs ho not V asked the appli

passing remark on tho trouble ho
had had in starting some ono up.
Paul feared that there might be
something out of tho way, but ho
dared not tell a falsehood whero it
could not possibly bo of any use, so
he answered in tho affirmative.
"Then lot nio seo hiui as speedily
"IIo is preparing to como down,
sir. If you will walk in, you may

The stranger followed tho hoy in
to the kitchen, whero it wai quite
warm, tho Are in tho furnace hav

"Howl" uttered the gunmakcr,
starting forward and extending his
"Aye, my friend," tho Greek re
plied, with a smile. "I am an early
visitor, eh r
"I should say so. But early or
lato you aro welcome.
"Thank you. Hut wo must not
spend much timo hero now. M;

"Hut whereforo is this?" asked
tho youth in surprise. "What haa
"I'll tell you. Last night Olga,
tho duke, camo to see the emperor.
I had just been giving his majesty

waa present at tho interview. Tho
duke wished for power to arrest you,
and in explanation of tho request
ho stated that you were at tho Lead
of a band of robbers hero in tho city
and that you had already committed
several robberies. I needn't tell you
all ho said, but ho mado you out to

with this the emperor granted hia
request Olga wished for power to
cxecuto you at once, but I'oter would
not co bo far as that Ho gave tho
power of arrest, but ordered the
duke to bring you beforo him."
lturio stood for a few momenta
like one confounded.
"Then ho must carry me to tho
emperor, ho said at length.
"Ah," returned Demetrius, with a
dubious shake of the head, "bo not
too sure of that I saw a look upon
his faco when he turned away that
meant more than he dared to speak.
As Buro as fate, ho nover means that
you shall sco the emperor. I know
it I saw It in his evil eye."
"But will ho dare disobey the or
"Yes, for he hopes to escape by
falsehood. How easy for him to
swear that he had to kill you to take
"I sec, I see I" uttered Kuric,
"Then como with mo,"
"Did tho emperor send you?"
"No; but I take tho responsibili
ty. I will tako you to him myself,
lto sure the duko's hirelings will bo
hero beforo long. Trust to me, and
all shall be well"
Burio pondered a few moments,
and he saw that his friend was right
"Let mo go and sco my mother,"
he said, "and then I will go with
"But make haste," urged tho
Greek, "for tho duko's men may be
here soon, and I do not wish them
to seo you. And tell your mother
to inform whoever may call that she
knows not where you are gone, but
that you will bo back by night"
The youth nodded assent and
then went into his mother's room,
whero he explained to her what had
happened and what ho was about to
"And how long must these things
be ?" the mother uttered, gazing ea
gerly upon her son.
"Not long," returned Ruric, "I
may do much toward settling the
matter today. But fear not, for I
am now safe and shall be until I sco
The widow promised all that her
Bon asked and soon became assured
that all was well, but Paul was left
with the duty of attending to those,
who might como for Ruric, though
they might seo the widow if they
persisted. The boy promised to tell
all that asked for his master that ho
waa gono away on business and
would not return till evening.
Tho mother came out before Ku
ric was ready to start, and her ex
amination of tho Greek's counte
nance seemed to bo satisfactory, for
tho anxious look hft her face, and
sho looked upon tho visitor kindly.
As Ruric entered tho sletlgo the
dawn of day was plainly announced
in tho cast and tho stars were paling
in tho sky. The Greek did not take
tho direct road to the Kremlin, but
struck olt 'to the westward and bo
entered by tho Negllna.
An hour later a party of five men
drove up to tho gunmakcr's cot.
They were dark, villainous looking
men, and murder was plainly stamp
ed upon their faces. They entered

What did it mean?
It wa3 noon. The proud duke was
onco more alone in nw private room,
and ho was pacing uneasily to and
fro. Thero wan a cloud upon hia
brow and trouble in his soul. Ilia
lifts were firmly set and his handa
clinched. Ever aad anon ho mut
tered to himself, and when ho did so
his hands would work nervously and
emphatically. lie looked often at
his watch, and often ho stopped near
tho door and hearkened.
At length camo that well known
shuffling, uncertain, catlike tread.
lie throw open his door, and the
dark priest glided in.
"I la, Savotano, I've waited for
you," tho duko uttered, sinking into
a chair, for his nervous walking had
mado him weary. "Now tell me tho
work is none. Oh, for Uod sako,
don t tell mo again of failure!
"Alas, my lord"
"Hold, Savotano 1 By the host o
hosts, you ore not going to tell mo
"Not reallv a failure, mv lord.'
tho priest returned nervously, "but
our men did not find tho gunmakcr
at home. Ho had gono when wo got
there, and no ono knew where.
"No ono knew? Did not his
mother know?" .
"No. Sho said he did not tell her
where he was going. IIo only left
word that ho was going on business
and should not return till evening."
"By heavens, I think ho has fled '"
"No, my lord, I do not think so,
I think he must have had business."
"But what timo were you there?"
"Shortly after sunrise?"
"And he gono then ?"
"Aye I He had been gono an
"It looks suspicious. But tho men
must bo thoro this evening. He

"There is no fear of that, my.
lord. I will boo that he 13 appre
hended as soon as he returns.
"Right, Savotano, right! And now
to tho other matter. I am to bo
married this afternoon I"
"Ah I So soon?"
"Yes; I waste no moro time.
What is tho use?"
"None, my lord nono at alL"
"Then you must remain, for the
ceremony shall be pcrlornied-as soon
"And does tho countess know of
your determination ?"
"Yes. She know it ere bJio retired
last night I told her she should
not escape again till sho could carry
my name with her. By tho mass,
Bir, Bho sealed her own doom I J la.
ha, ha ! Tho Duko of Tula wfll have
his colters filled again. Money must
come somehow, and how else, so eas

"Suro enough," returned tho
priest, with that old, coarse, wick
ed smile; suro enough, my lord-
"In no way. Ho, I'll put the seal
upon that budget and stamp it-
mine! So hero you remain until I
am married. Today until that cer
emony is performed I am not suro.
But tomorrow they cannot harm mo.
Oh, sho shall be mine, Savotano 1
Today sho is my wife, tonight she
shares my bed, and tomorrow all
heaven and earth and hell combined
cannot undo tho work. I have wait'
ed long enough. I havo worked and
schemed and have puzzled my brain
to ono treat purpose, and vet each
step I had marked out has failed
me, DamonoQ lives, the gunmakcr
lives, tho black monk lives hut I,
too, live! Ha! I live, Savotano,
and now the work shall be done as it
might havo been done at first hod I
been so disposed !
Tho duke had arisen to his feet
while sneaking thus, and Ids man
ner had been frantic and excited.
As ho ceased spcaking'die sank into
his chair and gazed thci priest in tho
faco. Ho was nil iron now. hvery
nerve and musclo was set, and a
fierce determination wasun hi soul.
Thero is ono moro scene in tho
ducal palace, and it goes on at tho
Very time whilo the duko icid hut
tool were together.
Vludimlr. the monk,! was inlthe
chamber of the countess, and 'tho
fair occupant and her maid were
there with him.
"And you are sure he means to
mafco you liia wife today," suid tho
monk in continuation of a conver
sation which hud been going on for
some, moments; that ho will have
tho ceremony performed whether
you consent or not i"
"les, sir," the countess murmur
ed. Sho guzed into tho strango
man's faco a few moments after sho
had spoken, and then, starting
quickly up, she threw herself upon
her knoes before nun.
"Oh," sho cried, with her clasped
hands raised toward him, "can you
not help me in this bitter moment?
J to not say so. Uh, I know you havo
some strange power, and you s may
help me. You cannot know the
misery I sutler. Oh, earth has no
panes more cruel! In all the lonir

raised both hands toward heaven as

entrance to the palace. You know
some secret passage, else you would
not be hero now."
, "True," the monk replied in a
perplexed tone, I do know such a
way, for by that way I came, and by
thut way shall I return, but I can
not convev you away thus. I am
The monk stopped here, for at
that moment a heavy footfall sound
ed without. IIo had started up from
his seat when the door opened and
the stout duke entered. The count
ess uttered one low, quick cry and
sank down. Sho would have sunk
to the floor had not Zonobie caught
her and bore her to tho couch.
The inoiik stood trevt, -with h53
arms folded across his breast, but
his right hand was hidden within
tho bosom of his robe. Tho duko
started back liko one thunderstruck,
and it was some moments ere he
could puin the power of speech.
Ho turned first palo as death, and
then the blood mounted, hotly,
fiercely to his brow.
"By the living God," he gasped in
a hissing, frantic tone, "how cania
ye here ?"
"To learn of your wickedness,
Duko of Tula," calmly responded
"Ha! D you beard mo in my
very palace, dog? Btit you have ven
tured here once too often. As sure
as there is life in me, you go not
hence alive !"
"Hold, Olga!" spoke the monk,
and so strange and powerful was the
tono that, though tho duke had
turned toward the door, yet ho stop
ped. "This ludy tells mo you mean
to make her jour wife. Is it so ?"
"Out, accursed monkl Who gave
thee right to question me ?"
"By my soul, proud duko, you
shall know that anon. Hut "listen.
If you force this ludy to that thing,
you do it at your peril! You had
better seek the fabled potion of the
gods and drink and be a dog than
do that thing!"
"Hold a moment, monk!" cried
tho duke, now nearly blind with pas
sion. -"You go not hence alive!
What, ho, there! Without, I say!
Zenobic, pull that bcllcord quick!
Back, monk! You pass not hero
alive! What, ho! Without, there!"
"Beware, Olga!" spoke the monk
os calmly as before, at the saino timo
drawing a heavy pistol from hie
bosom and cocking it "I would
shoot you as I would a dog! Oiler
mo ono motion of impediment to my
passage, and yon die on the in
Instinctively the duke moved to
one1 side. There was something in
tho look and tone of the strango
man that he dared not cope with
then. Tho monk passed out, but as
soon as ho was gone the duko sprang
trt tho bcllcord and pulled it till ho
broke it. In a few momenta more
tho servants camo rushing in.
"Out, dogs," the madman shout
ed, "and stop that monk from leav
ing tho palace! Kill him on tho
Bpot whero you find him if he dares
to offer the least resistance! Kill
him! You have tny orders, and I
am alone responsible!"
Thus speaking, the duke ruBhcd
from tho apartment to start up
moro of his household. First to the
gate of the court he went. But the
monk was not there, nor had he
been there. Then. he rushed to the
postern, but that was locked, and
tho snow was untrodden before it
IIo returned to tho hall, and one by
ono the servants camo back from
No monk could be found !
At first Olga was tempted to be
lieve that his servants deceived him.
But he auicklr set that thouirht
aside, for no could sco by their coun
tenances thut they wero as much
astonished as he. The search was
renewed, but the strango man waa
not to bo found! Thero was some
wonder and some uneasiness.
