AT THE TRIAL.
OR details of tho hours that
followed remained blurred mem
ories In the minds of Alice and
her rescuer. They wandered In
a strange subterranean region of pas
Mgts and cross passages that widened
and narrowed, that ascended and de
scended, that wero sometimes smooth
wider foot, but oftcner blocked with
rough stones mid always black as
Bight Surely no more pathetic pair
than these two ever braved tho male1
of tho Paris catacombs.
At any rate, through tho ghastly hor
ror of darkness and weakness and
pnln there presently came hope flick
ering torches In the distance, then
faint voices and tho presence of
friends, some worklngmcn, occupied
with drainage repairs, who produced
stimulants and rough garments and
showed them tho way to the upper
"world, to the blessed sunshine.
An hour later M. Faul and Allco
"were In clean, cool beds nt a private
hospital near the commissary's house,
irith nurses and doctors bending over
them. And on a chair beside the girl,
Twittered and blackened, sat Esmer
alda, whllo under the detective's pil

JUico lay in the hospital, slowly recov
ering from the shock and their burns,
the time swung around for tho trial

Murdering Martinez, tho billiard play-
It was a delightful September after
jsoou. Tho courtroom in the Palais de
Jastlce ias crowded with fashlona
'fetes intent on witnessing the trial of
Uoyd Klttrcdge. Pussy Wilmott, in
-ker most fetching gown, sat well down
3r front. A distinguished looking man
pressed through the crowd and was
given a seat on the platform occupied
By tho three Judges. "The Baron de
Heklelrnann-Bruck" whispered eager
teagues as the nobleman was thus bon
end. Yes; it was the baron. Intent

lirama be had inaugurated.
And now. suddenly, the blow felL
As the prosecuting officer soared along
3a his oratorical flight a note was
passed unobtrusively to the presiding
3udgc, a modest little note folded on
Itself without even an envelope to hold
It. For several minutes the note lay
HHDoticed; then the Judge, with care
less eye, glanced over it; then he start
ed, frowned, and his quick rereading
showed that a spark of something had
Sashed from that scrap of paper.
The presiding Judge leaned quickly
toward his associate on the right and
"whispered earnestly, then toward his
associate on the left, and one after
another tho three magistrates studied
this startling communication, nodding
learned heeds and lowering Judicial
eyebrows. Tho public prosecutor blazed
through his peroration to an inatten
No sooner bad the speaker finished
than tho rlerk of the court announced
"a brief recess, during which the Judges
"Withdrew for deliberation and the au
dience buzzed their wonder. During
this Interval the Baron de Heldelmann
Druck looked frankly bored.
On tho return of the threo an an
nouncement was made by the presid
ing Judgo that important new evidence
te tho case had been received, evidence
of so unusual a character that the
Judges had unanimously decided to in
terrupt proceedings for a public hear
ing of the evidence in question. It
'was further ordered that no one bo al
lowed to leave the courtroom under
any circumstances. '
"Call tho first witness!" ordered the
3udge. and amid the excitement caus-
" -ed by these ominous words a small
door opened and a woman entered
leanlug on u guard. She waa dressed
simply in black nud heavily veiled, but
5, lier tfrllsh llguro showed that she was
Troung. As alio appeared Klttredge
started violently. Tho woman came
forward to tho witness stand and lift
d tier veil. As she did so three dis-
" 4lnct things happened: Tho audience
murmured its admiration at u vision
of strange beauty, Kittrcdgo stared In
a dazo of Joy, und De Heldelmaun
Bruck felt tho cold hand of death
, 'Clutching at his heart.
It was Allco come to her lover's
', fcecd, Allco risen from tho (lames, Al-
Ice hero for chastening and Justice!

" How did that happen?"
'My father died and my mother
married a second time."
"Your mother married a Frcnch-
"What to the name of tho Frcnch
f saan whom your mother married?"
The girl hesitated, and then, looking
v straight at the baron, sho said, "Tho
Srou de Heldclmann-Bruck."

"How did she die?"

Tho girl looked down aud answered
rapidly: "My mother and I went to
tho charity bazaar with the Barou de
Heldclmann-Bruck. When the Are
broke out there was a panic. Thero
was a window near us, through which
some people were climbing. My moth

"It's a lier cried the baron hoarsely.
"SHencel" warned tho clerk.
"And after that?"
There came Into her face a look of
"I don't know what happened after
that for a long time. I was very ill
and for years I did not remember
"You mean that for years you did
not remember what you have Just tes
"Yes, that is what I mean."
The room was so hushed in expecta

Sho shook her head. "I did not re
member my own name."
"But now you remember every
thing?' "Yes, everything."

"How do you mean?"
"I 1" She turned slowly, as if
drawn by some horrible fascination
and looked at De Heldelmann-Bruck.
The baron's face was ghastly white.
"Yes?' encouraged the judge. '
"I was In another fire," she mur
mured, still staring at the baron. "I
I nearly lost my life there."
