consummated a plan whereby the
crown Jewels and certain documents
of state were surreptitiously removed
from the palace vaults. Instead of de

loyalists and recommended by certain
young aristocrats who by virtue of
their own dissipations had come to
know him as a man of Infinite re
sourcefulness and daring, planned and
carried out the pillaging of the palace
vaultH. Almost under the noses of the
foreign guards he succeeded In ob
taining the Jewel. No doubt he could
have made off with them at that time,
but he shrewdly preferred to have
them brought to America by some one

She waa opposed to this plan. While
there waa attll a chance that Sproue

declined to leave.

Barnes was abroad early. He was
st breakfast when Peter Ames called
up. An Inspiration seized htm when
the chauffeur mentioned the wholesale
exodus : he hired Peter forthwith and
ordered him to report Immediately
with the car. He was going op to
Green Fancy for Miss Cameron's
Two minutes after Peter drove up
to the Tavern he wa on the way back
to Green Fancy again, and seated be
side blin was Thomas Kingsbury
Barnes, hi new master.
There wa not a sign of human life
about the place. Peter accompanied
him upstairs to the room recently oc
cupied by Mis Cameron.
They found two email leather
trunks, thickly Relabeled, la the room
upstairs. Both were locked.
"Tou take this one," aald Barnes,
"and I will manage the other." He
was In a hurry to get away from the
house. There was no telling when the
government agents would descend
npon the place.
Barnes helped Peter to lift the
trunks Into the car snd then ordered
bim to start at once for Hart'a Tav
ern. "Tou tan return later on for your
things," he aald.
"I got 'em tied op In a bundle In the
garage, Mr. Burns," he said. "Won't
take a second to get 'em out." He
hurried around the corner of the
A dry, quiet chuckle ' fell upon
Barnes' ear. He glanced about In sur
prise and alarm, No oue wa In sight.
"Look up, young man," and the
startled young man obeyed. His gaxe
halted at a window on the second
story, almost directly over hit head.
Mr. Sprouse was looking down upon
him, his sharp features fixed In a sar
"Well, Til be d I" burst from
"Surprised to see me, eh? If you're
not In a hurry, I'd certainly appreciate
a lift aa far as the Tavern, old man.
I'll be down In a Jiffy. Stand aside I
I'm going to drop." A moment later
he swung over the sill, and dropped
lightly to the ground eight feet below.
"See, here, Sprouse or whatever
your name la "
"Better hear me out," broke In
Sprouse calmly. "I could drill a hole
through you so quickly you'd never
know what did It," be went on. His
hand was In his coat pocket, and a
quick glance revealed to Barne sin

the point of which seemed to be direct

not going to do it. I Just want? to set
myself straight with yoa. In a word,
I never got anywhere near the room
In which the Jewels were hidden. This
la God's truth, Barnes. I wasn't the
only one who wai trying to get the
baubles, my friend. It wa a game In
which only the best man could win."
"I know the truth now about Roon
and Paul," said Barne significantly.
"You do?" sneered Sprouse. "I'll
bet yon a thousand to one you do not.
The girl was led to believe that they
were a couple of crook and that they
fixed me In that tavern down there.
Isn't that what ahe told you? Well,
that ttory was cooked up for her spe

or ao ago to kcc! a lookout for bl
wife. The baroness la supimsed to be
deeply enamored of Prince Cgo. He
found letter which seemed to Indicate
that she wa planning to Join the
prince up here. When he heard of the
arrival of a lady at (Ireen Fancy the
other afternoon, he got busy. I admit
that I am the gentleman who tele
phoned the warning tip to the prince.
They tried to head the baron and hla
man off at the cross-road, hut he
beat them to It If there was to be a
fight, tbey didn't want It to happen

The door to Cgo's room wa open, but
there was no light on the Inside. He
