CHAPTER I Continued
"And that wu when the gallnnt
Scarlet Pimpernel Interposed J" Lady
'Alicia put to with a algh. "lie knew
M. le Tournon d'Agenay and bis fam
ily were being token to Paris."
"I believe be had bad an Inkling of
what was In the wind some time be
fore the arrest It la wonderful bow
closely he la always In touch with
those who one da; may need bis help.
But 1 believe that at the last moment
plans bad to be formulated In hurry.
Fortunately, cbnnce oi this occasion
chose to favor those plans. Day bad
. broken without gleam of sunshine;
thin drizzle was falling, and there
was a sharp bead wind on, which
fretted the hemes and forced the
driver to keep his head down, with
Ms brood brlmnrfd bat pulled well over
his eyes, feature, as you see, was
helping all ehe could. One can
Imagine the surprise attack. Vague
forma looming suddenly out of the
mist and the sharp report of a pistol,
twice In quick succession. The horses,
sweating and panting, fell Into a foot
pace, dragging the heavy coaco op the
steep Incline, through the squelching
mud of the road, and came to a vio
lent and audden halt on the crest ot
the hill at the first report At the
second they reared and plunged
"The whole thing was, I am assured,
matter of a couple of minutes. It
was surprise and awlftnesa that won
the upper hand, for the rescue party
was outnumbered three to one. Uad
there been the slightest hesitation, the
slightest slackening of quick action,
the attack would of a certainty have
failed. But during those few minutes
of confusion, and under cover of tlw
mist and the vague grnyness of the
morning the Scarlet Pimpernel and bij
followers, down on their knees In the
squelching mud were not merely right
ing, you understand) No! They were
chiefly engaged In cutting the saddle
girths under the bellies of eight fidgety
and plunging horses, and cracking
their pistols In order to keep op the
confusion. Not an easy task, you will
admit though tia a form of attack
well known In the Cast so I under
stand. "At any rate, those had been the
chlers orders, and they had to be
carried out For my part I Imagine
that superstitious terror had npset the
nerves of that email squad of revolu
tionary guard. Hemmed In by the
thicket n either side of the road. th
men bad not sufficient elbow room for
good fight No roan likes being at
tacked by a foe whom he cannot well
see, and In the melee that ensued the
men were hindered from using their
somewhat clumsy sabers too freely for
fear of Injuring their comrades'
mounts. If not their own; and nil they
could do was to strive tn calm their
bones and through the din, to hear
the words of command uttered by their
JJJAnd all the while," Sir Andrew
went on, amidst breathless silence on

the Chirking of pistols, (lie horses
Snorting, the lieutenant shouting, the
prisoners screaming. Then, at I given
moment, the Scarlet l'lniernel scram
bled jjp the Nil aeat of the chaise.
As no doubt all of ynu Indlca know by
now, he tins the most wonderful hand
with horses. In one Instant he had
snatched the reins out of the bewll
dered Jehu's hands, and, with word
of mouth snd click of tongue, bad
soothed the poor beasts' nerves. And
sudden he gave the order, fa vet'
which was the signal agreed on be
tween himself and his followers. For
then It menul a scramble for cover
under the veil of mist and rain, whilst
be, the gallnnt chief, whipped up the
tenm. which plunged down the road
now at hreakneek t-ed.
"Of course, the gimrd. and, above
all, the lieutenant, grouped the situs
tlon loon enough, and Immediately
gave chase. Hut they were not trick
riders, any of them, und with severed
saddle girths could not go fur, lie

drove his tenm without a hall aa far

relays. Once well nwiiy from the Im
piedlnte Influence of I'arls, with all Its
terrors and lyrnnnlcal measures, the
means of escape fr the prisoners be
came comparatively easy, thanks prl
murlly to the Indomitable pluck of
their rescuer and also to a long purse
"The story Is exactly us I had It from

hero once, at least by the hand.
Ills blghuess was questioning Sir
Andrew Ffoulkes more closely about
certain details connected with the
story, ft was softly whispered, snd
not for the first time, either, that his
highness could, It he would, solve the
riddle of the Identity of that mysteri

And the whisperers were correct,
since bla highness waa one of the few
who knew that Sir Percy Blakeney
was the Scarlet Pimpernel, who, with
bis little band of romantic adventur
ersof whom Sir Andrew Ffoulkes
was one waa devoting himself to sav

the Itelgn of Terror In France.

wives of such gallnnt men held one

Then Lady Ffoulkes looked In dainty
