And yet he seemed to make no se-
cret of It; and yet—It did explain
bis whole conduct since lauding, as
Toye had said.
She could only shut her eyes to
what must have happened, even as
Cazalet himself had shut his all this
wonderful week, that she had forgot-
ten all day In her Ingratitude, but
would never, In all her days, forget
"There won't be another case," she
heard herself saying, while her
thoughts ran ahead or lagged behind
like sheep. "It'll never come out—I
know It won't."
"Why shouldn't It?" he asked so
sharply that she had to account for
the words, to herself as well as to
"Nobody knows except Mr. Toye,
and he means to keep It to himself."
"Why should he?"
"I don't know. He'll tell you hlm-
"Are you sure you don't know?
What can he have to tell me? Why
should he screen me, Blanche?"
His eyes and voice were furious
with suspicion, but still the voice was
"He's a Jolly good sort, you know,"
said Blanche, as If the whole affair
was the most ordinary one In the
world. But heroics could not have
driven the sonse of her remark more
forcibly home to Cazalet.
"Oh, he Is, Is he?"
"I've always found him so."
"So have 1, the little I've seen of
him. And I don't blame him for get-
ting on my tracks, mind you; he's a
bit of a detective, I was fair game,
and he did warn me in a way. That's
why I meant to have the week—" He
stopped and looked away.
"I know. And nothing can undo
that," she only said; but her voice
swelled with thanksgiving. And Caza-
let looked reassured; the hot suspi-
cion died out of his eyes, but left them
"Still, I can't understand It. I don't
believe it, either! I'm In his hands.
What have 1 done to be saved by
Toye? He's probably scouring Lon-
don for me—if he isn't watching this
window at this minute!"
He went to the curtains as he spoke.
Simultaneously Blanche sprang up, to
entreat him to fly while he could. That
had been her first object in coming to
him aB she had done, and yet, once
with him, she had left it to the last!
And now It was too late; he was at
the window, chuckling significantly
to himself; be had opened it, and he
was leaning out.
"That you, Toye, down there? Come
up and show yourself! I want to see
He turned in time to dart In front
of the folding doors as Blanche
■•eached them, white and shuddering.
The flush of impulsive bravado fled
from his face at the sight of hers.
" You can't go In there. What's the
matter?" he whispered. "Why should
you be afraid of Hilton Toye?"
How could she tell him? Before she
had found a word, the landing door
opened, and Hilton Toye was in the
room, looking at her.
"Keep your voice down," said Caza-
let anxiously. "Even if It's all over
with me but the shouting, we needn't
start the shouting here!"
He chuckled savagely at the jest;
and now Toye stood looking at him.
"I've heard all you've done," contin-
ued Cazalet. "I don't blame you a bit.
If it had been the other way about, I
might hav& given you less run for
your money. I've heard what you've
found out about my mysterious move-
ments, and you're absolutely right as
far aB you go. You don't know why
I took the train at NapleB. and trav-
eled across Europe without a hand-
bag. It wasn't quite the put-up Job
you may think. But, If it makes you
any happier, I may as well tell you
that 1 was at Uplands that night, and I
did get out through the foundations!"
The Insane impetuosity of the man
was his master now. He was a living
fire of impulse that had burst Into a
"I always guessed you might be
crazy, and I now know it," said Hilton
Toye. "Still, I Judge you're not so
crazy as to deny that while you were
In that house you struck down Henry
Craven and left him for dead?"
Cazalet stood like red-hot stone.
"Miss Blanche," said Toye, turning
to her rather shyly, "I guess I can't
do what I said Just yet. I haven't
breathed a word, not yet, and perhaps
I never will, if you'll come away with
me now—back to your home—and
never see Henry Craven's murderer
"And who may he be?" cried a
voice that brought all three face-
The folding-doors bad opened, and a
fourth figure was standing between
the two rooms.
The Person Unknown.
The intruder was a shaggy elderly
man, of so cadaverous an aspect that

and his gaunt frame took up the cry,
as it swayed upon the threshold in
dressing-gown and bedroom sllpperB
that Toye instantly recognized as be-
longing to Cazalet. The man bad a
shock of almost white hair, and a less
gray bear.d clipped roughly to a point.
An unwholesome pallor marked the
fallen features; and the envenomed
eyes burned low in their sockets, as
they dealt with Blanche but fastened
on Hilton Toye.
"What do you know about Henry
Craven's murderer?" he demanded In
a voice between a croak and a crow.
"Have they run in some other poor
devil, or were you talking about me?
If so, I'll start a libel action, and call
Cazalet and that lady as witnesses!"
"This is Scruton," explained Cazalet,
"who was only liberated this evening
after being detained a week on a charge
that ought never to have been brought,
as I've told you both all along." Scru-
ton thanked him with a bitter laugh.
"I've brought him here," concluded
Cazalet, "because I don't think he's
fit enough to be about alone."
"Nice of him, Isn't It?" Bald Scru-
ton bitterly. "I'm so fit that they
wanted to keep me somewhere else
longer than they'd any right; that may
be why they lost no time in getting
hold of me again. Nice, considerate,
kindly country! Ten years Isn't long

guest. 'Won't you come buck for
another week, and see If we can't ar-

He subsided into the best chair in
the room, which Blanche had wheeled
up behind him; a moment later he
looked round, thanked her curtly, and
lay back with closed eyes until sud-
denly he opened them on Cazalet.
"And what was that you were say-
ing—that about traveling across Eu-
rope and being at Uplands that night?
I thought you came round by sea?
And what night do you mean?"
"The night it all happened," said
"You mean the night some person
unknown knocked Craven on the

the voice and the man seemed strong-
"There was no point in telling you."
"Did you see the person?"
"Then he isn't unknown to you?"
"I didn't see him well."
Scruton looked sharply at the two
mute listeners. They were very in-
tent. indeed. "Who are these people,
Cazalet? No! I know one of 'em,"
he answered himself in the next
breath. "It'B Blanche Macnair, isn't

"Mr. Hilton Toye, who spotted that

There was a touch of Scruton's bit-

tome subtle process it had a distinctly
mollifying effect on the really embit-

there was no guesswork in his tone.

said Hilton Toye.
"And you're on the river by what

boat there, and Just dropped down with

"Aren't you forgetting something?*
"Yes, I was. It was I who tele-
phoned to the house and found that
Craven was out motoring; so there
was no hurry."
"Yet you weren't going to see Henry
Craven?" murmured Toye.
Cazalet did not answer. His last
words had come in a characteristic
burst; now he hnd his mouth shut
tight, and his eyes were fast to Scru-
ton. He might have been In the wit-
ness-box already, a doomed wretch
cynically supposed to be giving evi-
dence on his own behalf, but actually
only baring his neck by inches to the
rope, under the Joint persuasion of
Judge and counsel. But he had one
friend by him still, one who had
edged a little nearer In the pause.
"But you did see the man you went
to see?" said Scruton.
Cazalet paused. "I don't know.
Eventually somebody brushed past me
in the dark. I did think then—but 1
can't swear to him even now!"
"Tell us about it."
"Do you mean that, Scruton? Do
you insist on hearing all that hap-
pened? I'm not asking Toye; he can
do as he likes. But you, Scruton—
you've been through a lot, you know—
you ought to have stopped in bed—do
you really want this on top of all?"
"Go ahead," said Scruton. "I'll have
a drink when you've done; Bomebody
give me a cigarette meanwhile."
Cazalet supplied the cigarette,
struck a match, and held it with un-
faltering hand. The two men's eyes
met strangely across the flame.
"I'll tell you all exactly what hap-
pened; you can believe me or not as
you like. You won't forget that I

with a significant look, but she only
drew an inch nearer still. "Well, it

The question asked most in pugilis-
tic circles is: "Was John L. Sullivan
ever champion of the world?" This
has been answered in the affirmative
as well as the negative, noted critics
disagreeing as to whether or not Sul-
livan really held the title. Tom An-
irews of Milwaukee, a well-known
sporting authority, declares Sullivan
was in reality the champion. An-
drews burrowed Into ancient pugilistic
history and unearthed the following
facts to uphold him in his contention:
In 1869 Tom Allen, heavyweight
champion of England, and Mike Mc-
Coole, an American, fought for the
world's championship near St. Louis,
and McCoole won on a foul in the
ninth round. In 1873 Allen and Mc-
Coole staged another battle and on
that occasion Allen was the victor.
That victory restored the champion-
ship to him.
Late in 1873 Joe Goss of England
came to America and fought Allen
near Covington, Ky. Goss won on a
foul in the twenty-seventh round. In
1880 Paddy Ryan fought Goss at Col-
lier, W. Va., and won the decision in
the eighty-seventh round. February
7, 1882, John L. Sullivan met Ryan at
Mississippi City for $5,000 a side and
knocked out Ryan in the ninth
Goss beat Allen, Ryan beat Goss,
and Sullivan beat Ryan, so why
shouldn't Sullivan be looked upon as
the world's champion after his viotory
lover Ryan? asks Andrews.
} Sullivan's victory over Ryan, and
the victories of the other champions
before Ryan and Sullivan were under
the old London prize ring rules, but
those were the rules that really gov-
j erned in those days, and it was under
these rules that champions were made
and unmade. In further argument
that Sullivan was champion of the
world Andrews cites these facts:
In 1885 Jem Smith claimed the

Smith won and was acclaimed the
heavyweight champion of England.
December 19, 1887, Smith and Kilrain,
an American, fought 106 rounds to a
draw in Isle des Souverains, France.
July 8, 1889, Sullivan and Kilrain met
in Richburg, Miss., and fought with
bare knuckles, as had Smith and Kil-
rain. Sullivan defeated Kilrain in 75
rounds, the battle lasting two hours
and sixteen minutes.
Smith was only the champion of
England, asserts Andrews. The best
he could do against Kilrain was a
draw. Sullivan, however, beat Kil-
rain, so why shouldn't Sullivan have
been entitled to the world's champion-
ship without a question of doubt?
Some folks, mostly English, were of
the opinion that Charlie Mitchell
shared the championship honors with
Sullivan because he held Sullivan to
a 39-round draw in Chantilly, France,
but Mitchell didn't skare the honor.
The championship was Sullivan's un-
til he was beaten; a draw scored by
an opponent against the champion
does not halve the championship. The
rule on this question is plain.
Sullivan's fight with Kilrain was the
last bare-knuckle battle. Boxing
gloves were introduced shortly after-

by using them in all his theatrical
work thereafter. He traveled all over
