He must be a great man. 1 expect you're right about me sot meeting him. 1 probably wouldn't stack up very high alongside a man that's big enough for you to think much of as you do him.

The sounds came from afar off, as if below the cliff. They ;both stopped to listen. Then the servants came running, with Mari- ano at their head. They rushed to the wall and leaned over, all excitement- Mariano turned to call to them over his shoulder; "The bandit of Eussia! The soldiers think he is hidden in a grotto under these As he spoke Almeric ran down the steps with a shotgun in his hand and made for the steps leading down the face of the cliff. Pike turned to EtheL "I saw that fellow on the road here. Whats b.e meant Ethel turned angrily from the law- yer and called sharply to her fiance: St Aubyn turned and stopped. he said.

Pike turned to look after him in mute astonishment and then turned to EtheL She refused to meet his glance. And hot blood rose to face as sbe felt bis scrutiny. She tapped nervously with her foot, und the astonishment grew tn Daniel's face. He looked from ber to where Al- meric had disappeared and back to her again. Then he took a step forward as If to speak; and stopped. Finally the dawning horror in his. face took concrete form, and he spoke. "Tkatr he groaned.

His usually alert mind seemed Inca pable of effort in the proper diiccuva, anu tne dazed look on his face remained there until Mariano came.to tell, him that his rooms were ready and that Herr von Grdllerhagen was awaiting him. Then for the first he awoke, and, with a sigh of res ignatiou as. he realized the battle he had before him, be gave a curt order that the automobile, which had broken on the road to the hotel, should 'be placed in the entrance garden, for he proposed to do some tinkering upon that don't he muttered to himself and then-allowed the re- !niark to, remain for be could not imagine one thing that the incident, could be supposed It stood alone in a-'little hol- low soiijire by itself and positively re- fused; to surrender to any comparison whatsoever- "And cent imitation of a anVip." be growled at upcn the he finished, with a' flash of jride. Then Tie went off" to his too wfrid tried to adjust himself to the for a.s he saw it and incidentally to frring some of that astute legal train- dig gleaned from contact witn farmers, promoters and other citizens to tear upon the case.' Horace in the meanwhile had walked cliff, wrestling with situ- ation as it appeared to him. There was not the faintest doubt in bis mind that the noble earl would break off the match because of the humiliation his equally noble family had been sub- jected "to by the incursion of this vul- gar guardian. Hot" and tired, he'returned to the hotel with some of his anguish worked off and sought bis sister. She. how- ever, was locked up in her own room and would onVy insist that he go away. So it was from Lady Creech at last that he gleaned some inkling of what had occurred: It. was nearly 6 when he made up his mind to search out Pike and "have it out with the as be put it, and he "found the Obstacle in the entrance garden. As Horace upon the scene Pike was pounding cheerfully with a hammer upon a .bolt- head of the motor car. He was In his shirt sleeves and wore a long workman's smock close but- toned at the neck. From between his teeth came the unfamiliar strains of "The Blue and the Gray." ..With a revulsion of feeling Horace approached him. "Mr. he said politely "One' lies down at Apporhattox." went on the song, and Horace stamped Impatiently upon the turf. "Mr. Pike! Mr. Pike! I wish a Horace went oh. quite angrily. Pike looked up mildly anfc regarded Horace with Interest he said and moved, to the other side of the machine, rubbing-his lean chin with the handle of a monkey wrench. "I wished, to'say that the surprise of this morning so upset me that I went for a long walk. I have Just returned." Horace. He waited expectantly, but Mr, Pike went on abstractedly, "One' wore clothes of and seemed to be ab- sorbed In his work, so that Horace was forced to go on. "I have been even more upset by what I have; just learned." "Why, answered Pike, fishing for a nut to the bottom of the tonneau. "It Is too ly bad! Lady Creech tells me that my Bister did you the honor to present you to the family with which we are 'orming an least to a por- tifn of answered Pike, "and 1 to present me to ths whole possetucfcy of "I'll not listen to youP' cried Horace in a rage.

J. Gaynor, democratic noai- inee for mayor, by Robert II. Elder, assistant district attorney of King's county, who has represented the state in the fight to enforce the-anti- betting laws at the race tracks. The attack, in the form of a public state- ment, was intended to support and supplement the charge made last night by William Ivins, that Q-aynor, as judge of the superior court, had sought to -defeat the purpose of the anti-gambling statute. Mr. Elder declared that" "he had learned of the alleged conference be- tween Gaynor and Patrick H..McCar- ren of Brooklyn, at which the consti- tutionality of the race track law was discussed, and it is charged a test case was contemplated, jn which Jus- tice Gaynor was to rentier, a- deci- sion. The Elder statement says "The new law against public gamb- ling on the race track went into ef- fect June At that racing was going on at' Sheepshead bay. A few days later a public of- ficial of prominence, who had been aiding me in my eGorts. to 'enforce the law, told me he had but a few 'mo- ments before engaged in a conversa- tion with Eugene Wood, arid that Wood had stated'to him, .that lie (Wood) and Senator Patrick McCar- ren bad been present at a conference with Judge Gaynor; in which it was decided that the constitutionality of the new gambling law could be nulli- fied, and a habeas) corpus suit was to be arranged to', be brought 'before Judge Gayhor that would allow the gamblers to do business in the race track. "Probably..an hour after this an- other public.. official of high promi- nence whom I met upon the race course stated to me substantially the same thing. I; that this conversation did'.take place because of the in which the information came to me, and I believe yet it took place." Mr. Elder added that the golf ball case was not. brought in King's coun- ty but in Nassau county, and before Judge. Gaynor. "In this says the statement, "it. was alleged that Sterling made a. bet with another man upon .the result of -a game 'of and that he recorded and regis- tered the bet on a card. In deciding the case, Judge Gaynor made a defin- ition of a common gambler. Under this definition 0. L. Engleman, a per- sonal acquaintance of Judge Gaynor, who "had previously been indicted as a common gambler as chief owner of the Brighton Beach track, was not a' common gambler.... 'The learned' '-.court: also decided that it was-, not an offence to make a act on a race course, an-d that it was no offense to register and record the same." Justice Gayhor was busy to-night reading the Elder statement, but be did not intimate w-hether he would make reply. The Ivins charges he .iranded as lies. The Republican candidate, Otto T. Bannard was the only one of three mayoralty nominees to do any active campaigning to-day. He spoke to an organized club at Columbia univer- sity, and at several political gather- ings.

Advantage was taken of Mr. Mo thervveirs visit to obtain his opin- ion on the advice given by many peo- ple to the farmers to hold their wheat for higher -prices. :TKere has certainly been a lot of holding said Mr. Motherwell, "and in my estimation foolish talk on the part of the repre- sentative men who should know bet- ter.
