The Roupell Mystery
By Austy'n Qranvillc
and people were- lott In conjecture to
what tliAt could be.
Tlw amall followed d Vallar, M. IV
bot ml Herr (loldttcln lo the very en
trance of th lloitrae. I'uable to obtain
admUtton to the tloor, hu hail recourse to J
i ho cillery. It wa nearly empty. An
old lady ml young coup from th
country. rrdK-ntlv on ttitlr houenuoon
trip, were sole occtiwtit. II at In Government Final l!tlmte Shows
GRAIN CROPS SHORT,
BUT WORTH FAR MORE
The Vleonuo il Vallar waa seated alone
In his private room In tho office of the
. Mutual Credit and Trust Company. It
waa a luxuriously furnlthcd apartment.
Th chain were deep, roomy and soft.
They warned mad on purres to lull one
' Into feeling of security. It waa about
ten o'clock In th morning. Th rlcotnte'a
private secretary had Jut retired loaded
down with papers and Instruction. IIU
employer Mt at th table, a idle ot docu
ments on either aide, and More him a
single sheet, upon which an astonishing
array of figure appeared,
Mlnnte after nilnut pauM, and still
tho calculation wit on. At lat h threw
down hi pencil, and walked over to th
window. Partly concealed by the cur
tain, he looked out on th throne ot peo
ple which pad up and down the atreet.
Hut he hardly noticed anybody, lie waa
really loot In hla reflection.
He had. Indeed, rood reason to be
thoughtful. A gigantic scheme, the float
Ine of which would Inture him very large
returns, had that very tnornlnf been put
by him before a syndicate ot capital!!.
It waa no ten a one than th consolida
tion ot tha docking Interest ot a treat
French aeaport. Th plan waa to brine
all the ownera together and form a truit
oa what la known aa the American plan,
and then rata the dock toll. With the
existing keen competition and the low
charge resulting therefrom, that property
at present yielded but a amall return for
the capital Invested.
The Idea waa a brilliant on. It would
net the Mutual Credit and Traat Com
pany, If tucceatfol, three million franca,
and the Mutual Credit and Truit Com
pany virtually meant tha Ylcomta A Va
llar. He had already enllrted conaldera
ble flnancial aid In support ot the scheme,
II waa that moraine expecting an addi
tion to hl force In the person of M.
D'Auburon. the friend of that rery naeful
M. Chabot, who had Introduced him to
th rlcoate but a few day previously.
To tell this younc man a bit block of
bare In th new enterprise, would, the
rlcomte thought, not be a very difficult
task. He had entertained him at his
bouse only an ermine or two ago. The
splendor of that occaa'on could not hare
failed to properly Itnr-reaa Mm.
Then hla wife, the Tlcomte, had so
ably seconded hi efforts to make D'Au
buroo feel that be was In eood hand. She
had talked ellWy ot their country place, a
wacnIScent establlahment on th outskirts
ot the famous forest of Fontalnbleau, of
woodland ride, ot moonlit waters, and
tbe felicities ot rural life far away trot
the roar aad din ot rati. Those marvel
ous ryea of hers had looked Into hi very
oul and enthralled hla sent.
m Vallar smiled aa be thoncht how
few who bad com within their Influence
had rotten away unscathed. A knock at
tho door aroused him.
"Come In," h cried out. and Jules Cba
twt entered the room.
"Where Is your frienJ D'Auburonl"
was de Valiar'a first question.
M. Chabot did not Immediately reply,
lie sank Into a chair. II eemel anx
ious and worried, and out ot aorta.
"What on earth's the matter with youT
You're not III, are youl" ejaculated the
"It's my nerrc. I think. They're not
ao strooe a they used lo be."
"You haven't been yourself for some
thne, ever aUire that uely affair at Yllle

ically. Chabot shuddered, and hid his tare In
hla hands aa it to shut out some horrible
"Iton't speak of it." be almost whis
pered, so falat aa his voice. "Yes, It
was enoughlo upset anybody."
"It waa a peculiar hardtblp on you.
Jules, just as you were on the point of

what's her name Mademoiselle. Kmlly,

"A thousand ahares I thought would b

"It Is not enoueh. lie has some rery
wealthy friend. Only last night he was
apeak ine of one, who, be says, follows his
lead implicitly. He U a Swiss. He pays
periodical visits to l'arla, and It la said

striken his fancy."
That' not bad nea. What I this
"He did not tell m." replied Chabot.
"He simply said If bo tbouebt aell enoueh
of. the venture lo put hi own money In,
tliat be would advUe bi friend to do like-
wlae, It we needed additional capital.
'What ar share to blni!"
"Far of rourae. It Is eaakr to sell at

M. Chabot remained cloaeUM with th
banker for nearly an hour, settllne th re
malnlnc details ot th dock scheme, A
printed draft ot th prospectus had to
be eon over; the flrat director of th
company had to b chosen, car belnc tak
en to piac npon th board the name of

his eye rapidly over a llat which h
held In hi hand. "We have I.lquelet.

"To be sure," acquiesced Chabot. "but

"Ye, that Is It, my friend: open to

"Ot your usually prualv kind." add

my dear Chabot, ther hav been many

Chabot left th office of the Mutual
Credit and Trust Company a amall-alxed
man luurd from a cafe on tbe opposite
side of lb street and walked In an ap
parently rarrlcwrand preoccupied manner
in the sum direction. He followed them
until they turned Into a broker's otfice.
Presently tbey came forth a fa In. and In
company with a third person continued to
walk In lb direction ot tbe Hourse.
Thl third person wa Herr Max Cold
stein, on of the shrewdest dealer In se
curities la tbe whole of I'aris. He waa
the broker to whom thn rlcomte had en
trusted tb sale of lb first morteac
bond ot lb Ardenne Charcoal and l'eat
Company. He was a heavy, thickset fel
low, with little, cunnlne eye, which bail
been set together aa closely as nature
would allow; bad not an enormous no
frown between tbem, he would perhap
hare bad only one tare rye In tbe center.
He had a bablt of rorkine up bi head
when In conversation, and of listening
with hit mouth wiile open. He had com
menced life In Iterlln aa a bootblack with
a second-hand outfit. At the conclusion
of tbe first 'lay's work be bad accumu
lated enoueh to buy tbe beat outfit In the
city. In a aeek be had concluded that
open air work waa not lo bla llklne, and
took bl bualneaa off th atreet Into a
basement, where be thrited apace.
Then the brilliant Idea struck him of
