taken by surprise
SYNOPSIS—Answering an adver-
tisement calling for a young man
willing to engage In service of dan-
ger, Matthew West, ex-service man
Just returned from Prance, where
he had been captain of engineers,
meets Natalie Coolldge, writer of
the advertisement, and without be-
ing Instructed as to his probable
dutlee, Is engaged by her, and that
same evening Introduced to her
friends as her fiance. That nteht.
In the Coolldge home, West Is star-
tled by the appearance In his room
of a young woman whom he takes
to be Natalie. Next morning Na-
talie tells West she has been trou-
bled by some woman, apparently
her double, who has been Imper-
sonating ber. Perclval Coolldge,
Natalie's uncle and guardian, is
disgruntled by West's appearance
as Natalie's fiance. Natalie, Cool-
ldge and West plan a visit of char-
ity. Leaving West In the car, Na-
talie and Coolldge enter a small
cottage. Before they return, West
secures Information which leads
him to beWsve Coolldge Is deceiving
Natalie for a purpose. Natalie In-
forms West she has been mistaken
In her suspicions and that she has
no further need for Ills services.
West Is astounded, but leaves. On
his way out of the grounds. West
hears a revolver shot, and finds
Perclval Coolldge dead, apparently
a suicide. In the city West Is vis-
ited by Sexton, an old servant of
the Coolldges. Sexton tells him he
has been abruptly dismissed, for
no apparent reason. He thinks
Coolldge was murdered. Sexton
has overheard a telephone conver-
sation In the Coolldge home, In
which a man demands Natalie's
presence immediately. He gives
an address, and with Sexton, West,
his suspicions of things not being
right strengthened by his learning
that Coolldge had lied about the
reason for the trip to the cottage,
visits the place. It is a disreput-

pected query. The man laughed,
lighting a cigar carelessly.
"Oh, It has not been so long since,
that the evidence Is obliterated. I've
got a hahlt of noticing things. The
way you sit, and square your shoul-
ders told me you'd bsen in uniform;
besides, you're the right age. Get

"Had over n year there," wonder-
ing what the fellow could he angling

"No; I was over the limit. I was
thinking you might he Interested In

Mike has got stowed away here some-
where. He had two hoys over there,
and I reckon I hey must have put in
most of their time gathering up sou-
venirs. Anyhow they brought hack

I've ever seen. Say, Mike, what did
you do with those war relics the boys
The fellow addressed leaned over
the liar, his face glowing with sudden
"They vas In the back-room, all
spread out. Why you ask? The gen-
tlemen would see them, what?"
"Yes; this one was a soldier him-
self. How Is It? You fellow's'like to
see the things?"
West hesitated for just an Instant,
his eyes turning unconsciously toward
Sexton, who hud not spoken. He felt
no suspicion, merely ti vague doubt as
to what this invitation might conceal.
Yet It had all been natural enough,
and promised an opportunity for him
to learn something more of the place.
Besides, there could be no danger;
both he and Sexton were armed, and
apparently the invitation was inno-
cently extended. To refuse lo accept
would be churlish.
"Certainly," he said at last, quailing
the last of ills beer and rising to his
feet. "It will he nothing new to me,
I Imagine, but we'll have a look."
The other man, who bad been lean-
ing against the bar, had disappeared,
while the fellow at the table had seem-
ingly fallen asleep. Mike came for

claimed gruffly, "for Some beoples run

Bhook the sleeper Into semi-conscious-
ness, "wake up. and see lo the bar
awhile. I've got some business. Who-
ever conies, you keep them here—un-
derstand. All right, gents."
The three stood close behind him
as Mike Inserted the key, and opened
the door. The tightly closed room,
with shades drawn at the single win-
dow, was so dark that West could
scarcely discern Its shape and con-
tents. Mike. without hesitation,
stepped within, his great bulk blotting
out whatever view liter* was.
"Come right In, genls," he Insisted.
"Von minute, ati" I turn on the light."
West never understood why he re
•ponded so recklessly to this invita-
tion, and advanced without hesitation.
He hnil no suspicion of any trick, wo
conception of being in any danger
He stepped In directly behind the
Imder, and Sexton followed. An In
stunt Inter, the door rinsed. with the
iliaro click of >i tilghl latch anil Mike
flashed on the light. As he did so,
he wheeled about, and shot ont mighty
clenched list straight Into West's face.
This was done so suddenly, so unex-
pectedly, the man attacked found no
opportunity to even throw up a hand
In self-defense. The giant Pole flung
his whole weight Into the crashing
blow, and the ex-soldler went down
as though struck by a pole-ax. For
an Instant, he realized that Sexton
was in a fierce struggle; that Ills as-
sailant stood poised above him ready
to land again If he moved; then con-
sciousness left him entirely.
He woke up, sitting In a chair, his
hands bound to the arms with strips
of cloth. For a moment everything
about seemed tinged with yellow, the
various objects In sight vague and
shapeless. It hurt him to move his
head, and Ills mind functioned dully.
He could not think, or bring back
to memory a recollection of what had
occurred. Yet slowly the rulst cleared
and the objects about nliu assumed
naturaljform. He was In a room of
some sfte—not the one In which he
had been attacked, he felt sure—fitted
up with u long table, and a number
of chairs. There was no other fur-
niture ; the walls were bare, and only
a small rag rug partially covered the
floor. At first he perceived no other
occupants; only as, painfully, he
finally twisted his head to the right,
his eyes distinguished two men seated
against the wall. The sight of their
faces restored Instantly his memory
of what had occurred. The Pole rested
back, with feet on the table awl eyes
closed, but the other—the younger
mnn—wns watching him closely, an
unllghtcd cigar gripped In hltr teeth.
"So, you've come out of It," the lat-
ter said unpleasantly. "I'd begun to
think Mike had handed you a real
knock-out that time. Ready to answer
a few questions?"
West, his brain clearing rapidly, sat
up straighter In the chair, determined
to play out his part the best he could
"Perfectly ready," he replied strug-
gling to control his voice. "Only I
should like to know what all this
means? Why attack me?"
"You'll find that out soon enough,
Captain; but first I'll do the ques-
"Not until I know one thing, at least
—what has become of the man wbo
was with me?"
"Well, I might as well tell you,"
carelessly. "He got hurt; the fool com-
pelled me to hit him with a gat; 80
lie's out of it, and you might as well
come through clean—that guy Isn't
going to help you any."
"You mean you killed him?"
"Well, he's out of the game; that's
enough. And as for you, your best play
right now is to talk up straight." He
laughed sneerlngly, "Unless you want
to call tip your friend Karvan, at the

Why? What have yon against me?'
"Perhaps I'll tell you when you ex

nose Into a private matter which does
not concern you In any way. That's

your lesson, and now It la simply np
to you to either drop this thing, or else
take another. It's up to you how far
we go. Now listen. I believe It wns
merely curiosity that brought you here.
That's true, Isn't It?"
"You suspected something, and want-
ed to find out If It was so. Well, you
came Into a bad neighborhood. We are
not nice to your kind around here.
What really caused your seeking me?"
"I do not know that I did," West
answered honestly. "In fact I haven't
the slightest Idea who you are."
The other laughed.
"So you are as green as that. Then
I'll give you the Information. My
name Is Hobart, .Tim Hobart. I am the
guy you were looking for?"
"Yes," West admitted, seeing no
reason to refuse an answer.
"I thought so, although darned If I
know how you ever located me here.
However, the sooner we come to some
understanding, the better. What do
you know about me?"
"Is that sol You knew my name
when I spoke It. It was the Coolldge
matter that sent you hunting me. You
thought the girl was here, didn't you?"
"I had reason to believe she came

"A conversation by telephone was
"Now we are getting down to facts.
And this comprises your entire Infor-
mation, doesn't It? Let's check up. You
connected me with the case because
you were with the uncle and her on
their call Sunday. You discovered In
some way that I had since disappeared
from that neighborhood. Then you ac-
cidentally got on to this telephone call,
and decided to run me down. Some
cute little detective, I'll say. But what's
the object? What Is It you are trying
to connect me up with. What possible
cause can you have for butting In on
"I told you before; merely curiosity."
"And who was the guy with you?"
"An old servant of the Coolldge fam-
"It was mere curiosity In his case
also, I presume?"
"So far as I know, yes."
Hobart smiled, showing his teeth
"West," he said slowly, "you are a
d—d good liar, but I am about to spike
your gun. Go on out, Mike, and send
in the first witness."
The two sal silently watching each
other, Hobart pretending a careless-
ness he was far from .feeling, uncertain
as to West's real purpose. The latter
realized now the true seriousness of
his position, yet this only Increased
his belief In the reality of the crime.
Previously his mind had harbored
doubts, but the very fact that Hobart
would resort to such desperate meth-
ods was ample proof of his apprehen-
sion of danger. If Perclval Coolidge
had committed suicide, this fellow
would surely have nothing to fear; he
could safely ignore any efforts to trap
him; Indeed would possess no suspi-
cions along that line. It was nis own
guilty conscience which drove him to
desperation. Coolldge had been mur-
dered, and this, man was either guilty
of the crime, or else knew the one who
was, and had personal reasons for pro-
tecting the party.
These thoughts took possession of
his mind and were convincing. He no
longer questioned but that lie was oil
the track of crime, yet his th>ught at
that moment concentrated more vivid-
ly on his own personal peril. How
could he escape? What was he about
to be confronted with? Nothing around
him afforded Inspiration. He was bound
helplessly; Sexton had disappeared,
whether dead or a prisoner, he did
not know; the walls of the room ex-
hibited no signs of weakness, while
Hobart eyed his every movement cold-
ly, evidently enjoying his predicament.
Apparently the man comprehended the
nature of his thought.
"Perfectly useless, West," he said
carelessly. "This place was construct-
ed for the purpose, and you are not
the only one who bus tested Its
strength. You will get out when I say
so, and not before."
"Do you intend to say so?"
"Well, that depends." shrewdly. "Not
if your release means my taking any
chances. But frankly, I do not believe
It will. So far us I can see you pos-
sess no particular Interest In this mat-
ter—only the attraction a young fellow
always feels In a pretty woman. Have
1 got that doped out right?"
"To an extent, at least."
"Yes, lo a very large extent. Of
course, curiosity also played a part,
while everybody possesses a sneaking
desire to do a detective act. Miss
Coolldge filled you up with a lot of
bunk; she was good looking, and you
fell for It. Certain things happened
that you fulled to understand, so you
rather naturally jumped to the conclu-
sion that some crime was being con
cocted. That was what brought you
here. Now I take It that, ordinarily,
you are a man of some sense. Conse-
quently I mean to try to get you to
drop the whole affair, as being none of
your business. If you agree to this, I
accept your pledge, the door opens, and
you go free; otherwise—" he waved
his hand expressively.
"Otherwise what?" asked West
"1 will see that yon are removev
from all temptation; my plans are too
Important to be Interfered with by ■
"But you can scarcely expect uis
to give sucl a promise?"
"Well, I don't know about that. It
doesn't pay to be too obstinate. Yon
have been In the army, I understand;
then yon are aware there Is a harsh
side to life, a way to make or break
men. All right, now I've got the pow-
er; I can keep you locked up here; I
could even kill you If necessary. You '
are utterly helpless. There Is an argu-
ment worth your consideration. But 1 |
will give you yet another which may j

The door opened quietly, and then
closed, leaving Nntnlle Coolldge stand-
ing there In the light, her eyes slightly
frowning as she looked silently at
the two men.

bart. rising to his feet, "you will, at
least, be gentleman enough to accept !
