I wa not favorably Impressed with till breeder of pig. He was an elderly limn, full bodied, with white hair, thai tuck out stltlly from under hit fur cap. n red. bulbous no, and shifty, eitspl clou eye. He saluted us with a touch of hl wp In military fashion. "And what is your business, gentle men?" he asked. "It li less business than gratitude, raid Graden courteously. "We dave made IhU little pilgrimage to thank the producer of the LcmsJorf hams." "You are not dealer, then?" "No, but I " Then take yourself off!" Herr Drobln!" "Go! clear out! to I net make mysell plain?" ho cried, his limned face nod ding In time to his violent gesticulations. "I will have no spies about the place!" Graden sprang out of the sleigh and Mrede up to the angry farmer. For a moment 1 thought there would be a scrimmage; but the huge bulk of his an lagonlst was not without It effect upoii the German. I bow often noticed that -reat Mature ha. a curiously soothing in tliienec on the bad temper of au oppo- ttAnt. "Why did you call me a spy?" demand ed my cousin. "The peple auHt here gossip of wai Mcret I !. he answered sulkily. "iVhlps'they speak true: perhaps false Who can axy? At least. I nc uo longer ei fool: my eyes hare been opened. 'You hare a good thing here. Herr Drobln. There Is a great future before you, If only you keep yonr knowledge to your self.' said the Englishman to me. 'If stranger come asking questions, they will be spies: tnd them away.' It was line advice he gave me; anyone can ee that So bo off with you!" "I am an Englishman myself. Herr Drobln. May I ask my compatriot name?" "I do not rtmember." "What. then, was be like?" "I cantmt describe Mm." "You are discreet, lierr Drobln. Come, tinw, let us strike a bargain. I will make a guess at your secret; If I am right, you will tell me what you know of this Knglishman." The German started hack, staring at Graden with little, bloodshot eyes. In which surprise ami fury were oddly min gled. Then, aide by side, they stepped Into the shadow of the plues, whispering "They are all liars. the Germans," Mid our driver confidentially, turning to ine. "For myself, I am a VtAe."

For the rest, he ha been the guest of 111 hi who lived out there," and he made a gesture down the road that we had come. A nameless fear took me by the throat a fear of unknown possibilities. I would have questioned thj- man more, but nt that moment Groden and the farmer emerged from the shadow of the pines. The latter had abandoned lib truculent manner. luderi, he seemed oddly ab serv.eut A Graden teperi Into the delicti, the man bowed low a curtsy, which my cousin answered with a eurt nod of dlsmkvsal. "Drive oh!" he cried, and once more we were ploughing oHr way back to the l.enisdorf road. "Did you ever study the properties of the rout called madder, commonly known a u dye?" asked my cousin suddenly. "No." "Then I must explaiu from the ttegin ulne. It hi right that you should hear." He pulled the flaps his deerstalker cap aver hi oars Indeed, it was bitter cwkl and settled himself amongst the rng.

At n second glance I noticed that the inte rior of the sectlou so divided wn of a hrounUh red. It set me thinking. I began to remember certain facts. The talk of the old servant concerning a teoret held by the owner of the pig farm nt Gran concentrated my suspicion, the proximity of the dye-work confirmed them.

Ills advice to that old German was it sound move, leslgucd to cover his visits to the farm And tho suspicions they might afterward hive excited. "HI method of getting Into touch with Ms victim was simple. He Introduced himself as an Knglishman by a letter which be himself wrote In his capacity of Heidelberg professor, well knowing that the police had not made public their suspicions of him. He assumed the name of Wakefield the first that suggested tself to him and the nationality of an Kugllshman, for. as we know, he spoke the language to perfection. He adminis tered madder In some form until Mecher sky grew 111; after which, In his position .if medical attendant, the rest was easy. He fled when he knew that the end of the tragedy was at hand, thut every Inine .if uls victim was fragile as thin glass.

I feel to hint as a man might feel towards a mad dog which Is a danger to the peaceful men. women and children uf his village. It Is the duty or the cttixen to run nis life In Its capture." "Where do we go now?' I asked. "To the railway. We must gather what news we can." The winter night was falling drear and eoM when our tired horses staggered up to the station door. I scrambled out. hHHgry, cramped, exhausted In body ami mind, and followed my cousin within. The station was empty at the moment save for a distant corner where a man Mt huddled en a traveling valise. We advanced nt once upon him. When we were a doxen feet away, he started up ami faced ns. It was Mossel. the lieutenant of the HeideHurs police. "Any luck, meln Herr?" M he to Graden. "What In the worhl are yon doing here?" wa the atoUbl answer. "Well, meln Herr. I thought you knew something, and followed you. WhH 1 arrived this morning, I said to myself: Tho great white English ferret will be at work to-day searching for the rai. will wait at the station like tt-nt Into which Mr. Ferret may turn the rat. Gradn skipped up to him and shook him warmly by the bum!. "Capital, Mossel. capital! Ami you had tho net any luck?" "The net was sitting upon the rat luggage when you arrived this moment The net ha 1ku here for five hours, ami is cold ami hungry. The net I of opin ion that the rat must have seen him and abandoned bis luggage. U has not left by train." "Hut he can escape In no other way. We have Mm. Mos-wri, w have him." "So it wouM oei," said the liouteunnt calmly. CIIAPTKU IX. III. TUB UlIASK IN THK SNOW. I have endeavored to give the fact of my trunge story without omission or ex aggeration. If I have failed.

I have described the steps that led to our following the mur derer to Lemsdorf, In German Poland, ami the mean by which he compassed the death of the unfortunate Mechersky.

Mossel, indeed, had waited by Manioc's luggage for six hours, but the man himself had failed to appear. Tho winter's sun, chilled to a dusky ball, was dipping buhiud the snow-clad ridges to the eastward whou wo scrum bled back Into the sleigh. As our tired horses stumbled through the outskirts of the straggling wooden town, me suauows rushed across the sky as If flying tho pur suit of the galo that shrieked amongst the houses.

Little had we thought that the being we pursued, fresh from the murder of thn mitu we had come to save, was sharing the same roof-tree. Perhaps there might be news of him nt the "Goldner Adler. HesKi, the tall, handsome Pole, who had about him mow of the feudal knight than n country Inn-keeper, met us In the porch, bowing n stately welcome. "You have had a bad drive, gentle men." said he.

At 11 he hlmsetf set out for the station ummi foot. We were sorry to lose so good a guest.

At last he drove away, ami he has not returned." "Who went with him?" "Ivan, my eldest son." "Did be say wbre he wa going?" - "No, meln Herr; only I heard him ery to Ivan to follow the eastern road which Is towards the IIumhih frontier." "And while he walled for the horses, what did he do ""A I have said, at first he abused me roundly for the delay. Indeed, meln Herr, I was surprised at bis knowledge, of Geriimu. for before he had wkrn it very Iwdly. For the n-st. he sat by himself, reading, In the best room." "Please to show us there." We trampl In single tile nfter the landlord through the Ill-lit passages to the "best room." a arbir rt nsble for important guests. It w-iine.1 a pwullarly Inartistic apartment, wilh green wall paper and nngular chairs eoveivd with purple aiitlmaiars. On the central table stood a lamp, and beside It lay a number of llio.e dingy IxHiks that seem common to inn of all nations. Graded made for them at once, and as he sorted through the pile of time tables, cata logue, ami trade Wers, we stood watch ing blm In siirtu-iso. Suddenly he stoppml In hi search with a little grunt of satis faction, and drawing a chair to the table, sat down. I looked over hi shoulder. He wa actually reading a German ISswdeker!

Mossel thrust me gently aside nlid, bending over, examined tho under pago thus left exposed. He took the book from Graden' baud and, carrying It to the lump, continued hi -scrutiny.
