Mr. Athanos Zeno raised his hat once

Athanos Zeno. with a bow to each in
turn, withdrew himself.
At the back of ahe Hotel des Pastes
pi a little garden whu the Cower beds
are islanded in a harsh lake of broken
schist, and where in summer time the
gray stone walls which bound the garden
on three sides beat back the heat of the
sun iiponthe air like the reverberators
of a furnace. Unobservant visitors won-
der to find themselves hotter here in shade
tian they are in sunshine elsewhere in
the same village.
Athanos Zeno sat here pretty often,
. leaning back in a springy chair of painted
strip iron, with bis lustrous black eyes
half closed. A delightfully idle man to
look at was Athanos Zeno, and on the
outside nearly always abstracted from
the world, though to a keen observer
there was visible when people talked in
bis neighborhood that curious listening,
observant poise of the -head which Austin
fcarley bad noticed in him. He had noth
tag to conceal, and but little to observe.
Just now. Dobroski, Fraser and O'Rourke
were talking together In front, of the
Cheval Qlanc, and now and again a stray
Tillage girl came down to the village
pump for water, but there was nobody
-else in sight.-
Mrs. Farley walked into the garden
with the boy's hand in one of hers, and
eating herself at some distance from
the Levantine, busied, herself over a bit

den sat Austin, with 'rumpled hair and
disordered aspect; occasionally scratching
-bis head with the feathered stump of a
-very short quill pen. Lucy, who bad so
arranged ber seat as to command a view
of him at will, observed him smilingly
and tenderly for awhile, but he began to
rumple his hair so wildly at length that
she spoke to him.
"Can't you work Unlay, dear?"
"It's tingling all over me," he an
swered, with an Irritated flourish of the
bands. "Actually and absolutely ting
ling." "You do nothing In that mood," she
said, smiling. "Leave it for a little while.
Come down into the garden."
"I think I will," he answered; and
she watched him whilst be swept away

a hurried whisper, "Austin, here are the

Austin arose with something of an air
of humorous discontent, and sauntered
Into the hotel, reappearing in time to
greet Maskelyne and Dobroski at the door,
where the young American introduced
fills Butler with a solemn little phrase
or two about the novelist's fame, which
caused him to blush like a schoolboy.
Angela looked upon him with eyes of ven

By and by they were all seated In the
garden together, and O'Rourke and Fra
eer came in, and each took a chair In the
bot shade of the trained limes. Angela,
far ley and Maskelyne were just begin
ning to feel at home together, and were
eliding into talk. O'Rourke sat near and
kept silence, though it was a common
bablt of his to lead conversation. He was
esteemed a good talker, but his power as
a listener was rarer and more remarkable.
As a listener he was full of subtleties,
lie responded silently to the slightest
shade of (bought, and the talker always
Celt certain of sympathy with him.
He saw but little of feminine society,
and knew but little of women's manners
or their Interior ways. He watched with
a closer interest than be could altogether
bare accounted for nt the moment for any
sign ot rapport between Maskelyne and
Angela, and saw none whatever on either
side. Dobroski sat by, sliest, and many
glauccs of affection and understanding
passed between her and Maskelyne.
"Engaged, perhaps," said O'Rourke to
himself. "Sure of each other."' A mo

anger at himself, "What has it to do with

Everybody felt a little startled and
curious nt Dobroskl's abrupt departure
from the garden with Angela, but nobody
but Fraser felt altogether at liberty to
speak ot It.

still talking books when Dobroski and An

Angela was ararmcd nnd wonder-
stricken, his manner was so changed and
wild. His lean brown hand trembled as
he held out to her n something In a bind

inereanouts were standing with their arms

"These are your wife and your boys?'

room, bowed, and, establishing himself at
a little table at the far end ot the chani
ber, began to make busy arrangements

with a brisk tap on the table, and smooth
ing out his blotting paper with a flourish.
Angela had never seen Mr. Zeno before.
and Dobroski scarcely saw him now. but
the girl was conscious of an interior de
mand for privacy, and with a hand laid
gently on the old man's arm she moved
toward the open doorway which communl
cated with the larger salon. Dobroski
yielded to the pressure, and made a steo
or two with downward eyes, his lean
brown fingers tremulously tearing nt the
package, which still contained a some

pelf n third husband In James Carcw,
who was the loading actor In her com
pany. Tho marrlngo took plnco at
I'lttsburg, but tho announcement was
by, little sweetheart, I must go." He
raised ber fingers to his lips and kissed
them, and shook hands formally all
round. "Ye shall meet again, I trust,"
he said to O'Rourke. "Can you spend
the evening with me?"
"I am afraid I should be dull to-night,"
returned O'Rourke. "I was up at six
yesterday morning, and have had no rest
as yet. Can we meet to-morrow?"
"When you will," returned Dobroski,
and so with a final salute all round he
went his way.
A corridor or covered passage led direct
through the hotel from the garden to
the village street, aud he took that way.
Passing the center window of the larger
salon he encountered the glance of Atha
nos Zeno, who seized the opportunity to
bow and smile. Dobroski suddenly re
called to mind the fact that he had left
tho photograph upon the ledge ot that
same window, nnd retracing his steps, ho
entered the hotel once more. He found
Mr. Zeno standing at the window, tapping
bis teeth with the Ivory psper knife, and
the polite Levantine made way for him
with a dancing master's grace. When the
old man stooped for the photograph which
still lay where he bad left It, Mr. Zeno
"Ah!" said he. In German, "that Is
yours, sir. At striking countenance. A
An acquaintance," returned Dobroski.
'A delightful art. And useful. So

Into a thoughtful frown.
"A trap for me?" be said to himself.
I think not. Even If so, a trap that
caught nothing. Ho knew that clumsy
canaille whom he caught In the woods tbo
other night, but he never guessed that I
meant he should know him. I must find
him another to discover, and after that
another. He has some great coup on
hand. He la not spending the better part
of a year In this perfect quietude and In
this little village for nothing. Well, he
foiled Maurltz, and he foiled Bernardo,
and be fniled Arnaud. Let us see If lie

exclamation be bad made bad much of
tbe sound with which a hungry wild beast
receives his daily rations, and for a mere
instant bis teeth were bared with a look
altogether savage and carnivorous.
xnis singular transport lasted but a
moment, but he stood for a second or
two staring Intently at the paper In his
hand, whilst Angela rose slowly, and laid
her hand npen bis arm again. Then she
saw that the object which had so excited
him was the photograph of a man of
nearly his own age the face a quarter

and one was in Russian, and another In
German type. Scattered among them by
their fall were the leaves of a lengthy let
ter, and having sorted these leaves from
tbo others, and arranged them in the or
der in which they were numbered, he be
gan to read.
The letter was written In French, and
be made one or two exclamations In the
same language as he read, "Ah 1 the good
Bremner! It was he," being alone dis
tinguishable. Angela, with knitted fingers
and down-turned palms, stood before him
at a little distance. She had laid down
tbe photograph and the miniatures on the
lndow sill beside Dobroski, nnd divided
her serious and inquiring regard between
them and him. He skimmed the letter
rapidly as If In search of something until
be reached the final page. This he read
slowly and deliberately, breaking off once
to drop the letter in both hands between
his knees with an odd cackling laugh,
bleb, whatever else it may have ex
pressed, was absolutely devoid ot mirth.

together, restored them to tbe torn en
