for death staged with all the Ingenui-

carried, bound as he was, until he
stood before a grandfather clock, from

army pistol. Before he was fully aware
of the plot his hands were tied above

or to any such method aa the one he
had aelected to do away with htm. The
second he was outside the house he set
to work to eatabllsh an alibi that
would be proof against. any contin-
gency. With this object in view his
actions were rapid and practical. He
sent his chauffeur to borrow a taxi

clamber back to the taxi.
A black eye bestowed on htm by the
chauffeur at his master's order, a lot
of dirt and dust sprinkled on his
clothes and Mr. Bentley was ready to
head for the Brewster country house,
where he arrived before the family
had retired, gloating In his mind over
the fact that It waa now close to eleven
and picturing the agony of Peter.
It happened that the first person he
met waa Pbilippa Brewster, who waa

ley Insisted on telling In a drunken
way how be and Hale had taken the
car, gone to a saloon, got into an
argument and started off with Hale
at the wheel. How the car had dashed
over the precipice and hurled the
young man to death while he had es-
caped with a few bruises, a black eye
and ruined clothing.
Mr. Brewster shook his head. He
could not take Mr. Bentley seriously.
He suggested with all the politeness
he could summon that bed was a good
place for the bibulous Brtdgey.
Chuckling to himself, he made his
way upstairs, carefully simulating In-
toxication, and then into his active
brain came a new Idea. Peter's room
was near his own. Why not boldly en-
ter and go through his papers? Mr.
Bentley no sooner thought of this than
he put it into execution.
No one knew better than he that he
was not likely to be interrupted by the
occupant of the room. In fact, Mr.
Bentley found a delicious joy in pulling
out his watch and watching the minute
hand touch eleven. He could almost
hear the report of the pistol and see
the convulsed shrinking of hi* enemy
as the shot took effect
Brldgey smiled—a sinister amlle—
and proceeded to go through Peter's
belongings. He was looking for the
option when he came across something
fnr more important—a paper which
caused him to forget the oil land ia

al, to my son. P*t*r, contingent upon his

th* girl ot the double cross be won by
any other thaa my son Peter, to such

Here Indeed was n treasure. Mr.
Bentley bent his brows. Was that the
reason Peter Hale waa so attentive to
Phlllppa Brewster? Was she the girl
of the double cross? He determined
to flud out. Nothing could be easier.
Immediately a scheme occurred to him
which would render bis plan easy and
natural. He had done himself a good
turn In getting rid of Peter—a better
turn than he realised.
But If Brldgey Bentley could have
seen the reality when the clock hands
reached eleven he would have seen a
fnr different scene than the one he
He would have seen Peter gazing In
terror at the clock face; he would havfe
seen the two men left to guard him
go out a few minutes before the hour.
He would have seen the minute hand
barely touch eleven and at the same
second the door of the clock case open
and a masked figure emerge silently,
cauUously. He would have seen the
masked figure raise the pistol, heard
the shot reverberate, seen the bullet
hit the celling and beheld the masked
stranger cut the cords that held Peter
Leading Peter to n closet, the Masked
Stranger pushed open a secret door
and pointed. "Do not try to thank
me," he said, quickly. "Be true to the

Peter nodded and was gone. The
Masked Stranger slipped out of the
room. Brldgey Bentley had been out-
Once outaide, Peter's thoughts turned
Immediately to the Brewster house and
to the possible danger to Phlllppa. He
balled n taxi and harried away.
Thus It happened that he met Mr.
Brewster not a great while after that
gentleman had listened to Mr. Bentley's
wild tele of disaster. As Mr. Brew-
ster, who had taken more drinks than
were good for him, saw Peter, more or
less excited and dusty, he concluded
that both he and Mr. Bentley had had
a night of It, and again he suggested
bed. Peter left him and, passing
through the library, saw Phlllppa
asleep, her arm resting on the library
table and her lovely head on her arm.
Here, Indeed, wns a chance In n
thousand. Why could he not gently
raise her sleeve nnd thus discover
without her Knowledge, whether she
was. Indeed, the girl of the double

ter was not the only Interested party.
Behind the portieres stood Brldgey
Bentley, shaking with anger, amaze-
ment written over his face. How had
Peter Hale escaped? What had gone
wrong? The cruel eyes of the social
pirate contracted aa he resolved to
pnnlsh the men who had failed to car-
ry out his orders.
But for the present he watched Pe-
ter with an Intensity that showed he,
