The Roupell Mystery
By A u s t y n Granville
An hour had elapsed since Mme. Kou
pell' departure. Harriet N'ehlon iw
softly, and, opening I lie window wltli
Krcat caution lot It should squeak upoa
II Iron hinge, looked out agiln upon
the front of the house. Kvrrj thins wn.
enveloped In n Hood of moonlight. The
fine grasses Uoii the lawn glittered Ilk
spear of Ice with the heavily falling
dew drops. The cnll of a night blnl to
It mate was the only sound th.it broke
the stillness. The beauty of the night
touched her deeply, and the song of the
nightingale mora profoundly jot. She
leaned her head against the nlmlow frame
ml her (light form shook with suppress
rl sobs. The thought came that every
minute' delay would make It more illtli
cult for her loer to escape from the
house. In a few hours the Ullage would
be st.rrlng. He would le een by some
peasant going early afield, an he left the
(round. She muil at once summon him
from bin hiding place. In a few min
utes bo could be cone, aud she would
breathe freely again.
Advancing on tiptoe to the door of the
chamber, she turned tbe handle softly and
stepped out Into the passage. The house
wax perfectly quiet. In the aeml dark
ness b crept timidly up the corridor,
feeling her way with the tip of her fin
ger against the old oaken wainscoting.
At hut her foot struck against a door
rent. She tried to recollect what door
mat It wa. She stooped and paiued her
hand over It. It was an old-fashioned
rag mat of American make, such as one
eer In the bousea of middle clau farm
ers in New Kngland. It bad been her
lover'a request to bate such a thin: at
the door of his room. It reminded him
of hi old home across the sea. It was
II right. This was tb apartment she
wanted. She placed her finger upon the
handle of the door, opened It a little way,
and called softly:
To her surprise there was no answer.
She opened the door wider yet. and went
In. The moonlight, shining In through
the window streamed over the carpet and
made every portion of the chamber plain
ly visible. She glanced quickly around.
To her intense astonishment the room
was empty. Trembling with fear and ex
citement she again Issued forth, and stood
once more In tbe corridor. At the very
moment that she did so, a pistol shot
reverberated loudly through the chateau.
And then from all parts of the bouse Its
Inmate rushed hurriedly.
It was a terror-stricken assemblage of
men and women, aroused In the dead of
the nlgbt by that sharp, ominous appall
ing sound. In the supreme quiet of the
chateau tbe pistol shot had rung out with
terrible distinctness. Though terrified
beyond measure In tbe almost certain
knon ledge that some dreadful tragedy
had taken place. Harriet Weldon did not
hesitate a moment. Dashing along tbe
corridor she flung aside the heavy drap
eries wblcb separated Mme. ltouiH'a
Sleeping apartment from ber sitting room,
and bravely entered.
Fare to face, M. Chabot and her lover
-were standing. On the floor betweer.
tlieui, lying at full length, her face turn
ol upward, ghastly In tbe dim light of the
solitary candle, lay Mme. Itoupell. From
n bullet wound In her forehead, a little
Mood wa slowly owing on to the floor
timl matting with It crimson flood the
jrray, waving and carefully combed hair.
The room seemed suddenly to All with
peopJ all looking through a kind of ml.t,
A ghastly, unwholesome pallor was on
each face. Tbe ordlnnry proprieties of
life were set at naught. Tbe conten
llooalltle of drei were forgotten. Kuilly
vaa bending over the prostrate woman,
lmr flue feature pale a death, but set
n a marble, and showing no trace of
tear or womanly weakness. She seemed
the only collected one In tbe room; all
the rest stood gasping and staring, a help
Ie, bewildered, frightened group. Kmlly
evinced no surprise at seeing Van I.Ith
there so unexpectedly, as everyone else
did. With much presence of mind, she at
once turned her attention to the sufferer,
to aee what could bo done for her. She
gaie order clearly and rapidly, and with
a marvelous self-command.
"Lift ber up and place ber on tbe bed.
Keep ber bead raised. This pillow so.
llrlng ma wnter, quickly."
She bathed tbe cold, inanimate face;
she folded ber handkerchief up Into a
wad and placed It over tbe fatal spot.
Slut bound over it as tightly a possible
a long bandage torn from the white cov
erlet. Then she turned to Jean, the
coachman, who, hearing the disturbance
from the adjoining stables, bad rushed
Into the house accompanied by the gur
bVuer. '"fake tho fastest horse you have and
ride to tbe village. Send Dr. Crolzet
up here; and then keep right straight on
into I'arl. Here, toko this with you."
fibo turued to the writing table and
hastily penued the following note:
"PJeose come to us immediately, and
brine with you the best nurgeon jou cuu
bid. Aunt Ituth lm been shot I feur
fatally. Come at once, I beg of jou, or
you may bo too late.
She folded the note and addressed it to
"Dr. Paul Mason,
"Hue de Iteverdy, No. 21."
"How long will It take you to deliver
that?" aha asked, as she banded It to
"It Is fourteen miles," replied tbe man.
"I can do It In an hour and a half,"
"1 can coyer the distance In half tbe

fdi terwaad. He had bees etaadiog

Kmlly was about to band It to him.
when the voice of M. Chabot win heard
mled in marked rcnuttMtmucc He sptke
"lowly, deliberately, and a Clmrle Van
I. Kb listened, he felt that each, word
was an Iron link In that chain which was
oon to bind him hand and foot, and hold
him up to the world as n murderer.
"Monsieur Van I.Ith must not lente

Itoupell ha been imretlgaled by the
Tbe suddenness of this accusation, the
horror of It. the farts which, with Its ut
terance, Instantaneously arose In tho
mind of Van I.llb and arrayed themselves
remorselessly against him, deprived him
for the moaient of tbe wwcr of reply.
In the dead "silence that ensued M. Cha
hot turned and dispatched the coachman
on hU errand, adding In an Imperative
tone : "
"After you have called up the doctor,
stop at Monsieur Itrvell's, the major, ex
plain briefly what has In owned, then
go to Monsieur Delorme's, the Jnttlce ol
the peace. Tell him. too. Ilemember,
madame'a life may depend on the quick
ness or your movements."
M. Chabot, whom one would never
have suspected of being cast In an heroic
mold. wa undoubtedly the coolest person
in the room.
Van Lltb. fully conscious of the awful
peril In which he stood, again essa)ed
to speak. M. Chabot interrupted Mm.
He did It politely; but there wai no
mistaking his firmness. The servants
thought It admirable and his knowledge
of law, ah! was It not prodigious!
"Monsieur Van I.llb. you may be a per
fectly Innocent man. If so. It will be
easy enough for you to explain ever thing
presently to tbe mayor, whom I have
sent for. In the meantime, the fact of
your apiarance here at such an hour as
this, under circumstances which lay you
open to grave suspicion, make it my duty,
as a citizen, to forbid jour departure.
"Monsieur Chabot!" ejaculated Har
riet. "Whit do you mean? You surely
don't believe that Charles that Mon

The Frenchman shrugged hU high

white teeth as he smiled just a little,
In a deprecating manner.
"Mam'selle must not blame me. I am
simply doing my duty."
"O, this must not be," exclaimed the
girl, now almost unnerved with appre
hension. "I can explain all I can clear

The Frenchman's fare took on a ghast
ly color, lie stammerrd out a few unln
telllglbte words, as one who In the heat
of a terrible pnlon imuim-s to find Ihe
most stinging epithet. Hut an exclama
tion from Kmlly Weldon checked both
men Instantly. She had been bending over
the prostrate form of the Injured woman.
N'ow she looked up, the enhn of a great
despair In her face, tlw first tear she
had shed glistening In her fine eyes.
"0. Harriet." she cried, "she I dead.
I shall never hear her tolce again."
Tbe girl' grief was something terrible
to wllne. Harriet stole softly to her
sister side, and, putting her arms about
her, strove to comfort her.
"Let us leave them," said Van Mth
to M. Chabot, who stood awed and hum
bled In Ihe presence of such aCllctlon.
And side by side the two men, the
Frenchman and the American, the ac
cuser and the accused, went out from
the chamber, leaving the living and de
spairing alone with their sacred dead.
Victor Lablamhe, the Parisian prefect
of police, was a man who united within
himself qualities not often found con
joined In the same Individual, for while
lie was a sagacious and vten brilliant
theorist, he possessed at the same time a
thorough practical knowledge of hi busl
liewi. In the course of hi long career on
the (ioIIco he had risen, by ability alone,
from a comparallctely obscure to Ills
present prominent position. When called
upon to unravel a uijsterlous crime, be
generally adopted a certain theory, cnl
pursued it with tbe persistency of n
bloodhound. It was the arrival of this
ollicer that a little group of ptuple In
side, and a promiscuous crowd of nbout
two hundred of the Inhabitant of Vllle
neute who were asueinhled outside the
chateau Impatiently a waited.
A sudden hush fell upon tho gathering
on tho lawn as, about nu hour after day
break, n dark-colored, unpretentious road
cart turned Into the avenue. M. Victor
I.ablanthe had at once responded In per
son to the call inailo upon him. The
reeking flank and foam-covered side of
the animal In the shaft sufficiently at
tested the speed at which tho distance
between the village and the metropoll
had been traversed.
M, Chabot, cool and collected a errr,
wa the first to receive the prefect. lie
conducted him Into Ihe reception room.
The major and M. Delorme, the justice
of the peace, were sipping tbelr coffee In
the dining room. Fearful that be might
