Naturally, a pair of eyes dasiled by
the glare and brilliancy of the outer
world would be obliged to accommodate
themselves to the inner gloom of that
spacious drawing room ere they would

degree of certainty. This fact must have
forced itself upon Sylphide, otherwise she
would not have recoiled ao suddenly and
concealed herself as that pair of strange
eyea glared in through the blind upon
her. Gathering the fluttering gauze of
the window drapery about her, she stood

Evidently satisfied that the drawing

stealthy, and stole along the piazza until
it reached the entrance to the main hall;

of a stray servant, the intruder advanc

It proved to be a man of medium
height and slender proportions, lithe and
willowy in every limb. The figure, though
undersized, might have served aa a model
for an artiste The face had a lean, hun-

and Martha had forgotten their very ex

man now stole with outstretched hands.
In an instant Sylphide divined his nefa
rious intention, and an intelligent light
hot into her watchful eyes.
"The man I want!" she thought, with
the celerity of lightning; and as his
cramped fingers closed upon the gems.
he suddenly appeared, snatched the
necklace from his grasp, and in a swift
undertone she breathed:

her mental absorption that for the mo

to come to the astute conclusion:
"That child is her own! That's toy

"You are too much of an adventurer
to be a clown," she breathed; "whatever

The approach of Camilla with the

the direction of the stables, while Mrs.
Courtlandt retraced her steps into the

power. It carries an explosive chamber containing 200 pounds of guncotton,

an awful hole In the Ill-fated ship which may be the object of attack, and
perhaps sinks It at once. The torpedo on entering the water sinks .to the

engines are driven by compressed air, and It Is prevented from rising or

a spinning wheel attachment. The first lesson of the Uusxo-Japanese war

fatal cup, but it fell heavily at 'his side.
Camille bowed and quickened his steps
across the lawn towards the villa.
"Perhaps she suspects," he said to

The reckless wish found unexpected
fruition in the mind of Claire. She

"The question waa afterward put to
several people and elicited answers
all the way from twenty to 1,000, the
majority guessing from 300 to BOO.
"Taking the weight of gold coins
and bills at the treasury, It was fig-
urcd that a $5 gold piece weighs .200
of an ounce avoirdupois. The employe
at the trensury who handled the pa

four and one-bulf ounces. That
would make one bill weigh .045 of an

would balance the gold piece."
On the proposition of how much
money one can lift, figures wore ob

numbers of coins were placed In bags

Is fS.OOO, which weighs eighteen and
