When All were Assem bled Twenty five Beautiful boys about twelve years old and As Many girls dressed in Eastern fashion appeared and passed among the company carrying trays on which were Little cups of pure Crystal containing an aromatic Bever age.

Following no this Success Tho boys presented bouquets to each Tho ladies in a Holder of wrought Gold filigree with her initials worked in it while the Young girls gave a buttonhole of similar design in miniature to the gentlemen. Hereupon a sound like a peal of Silver Bells rang softly close at hand and on All sides yet invisible was heard Tho great doors leading to the dining Hall were withdrawn and Tho fragrant spleen Dor of that freshly created apartment dawned upon the company. As they passed the threshold music was heard delicate and Remote As if the Flowers were singing together. Such a feast should begin wit i nothing Lesa delicate than nightingales tongues and wind up with apples of the hesperides. When the cloth had been withdrawn after the last course it was revealed that the great table was composed of upward of sixty Small Square tables like Tho joints of a accommodate 01 iveing. 1 exclaimed mrs.

Few of them noticed the Entrance of it Small Man with a dark Indian complexion and curly Block Beard who took no a position in Tho Center of Tho open space in Tho Tipper end of the room. Lie wore a White tur ban a close fitting jacket with sleeves to the elbows showing a lean Brown forearm Loose White zouave trousers gathered at tue and a pair of i turkish slippers turned up it the toes. A Sash of fico silk of a Peculiar red color and Many feet in length wins bound round his Waist. A Gold Bracelet in the shape of a Serpent was worn on his left wrist. Lie looked like a Hindoo and it soon evident that Tho count s friends were to be treated to an exhibition of Oriental Juggler. After making a Low Salaam to the company the Man holding his Bare arms extended before him began to rub the Palms of his hands slowly together and in a few moments a Fine Gold Cord appeared dangling in tween them and gradually lengthening till it reached Trio floor. It increased rapidly coiling itself As it did so until As much of it As could be contained in a hat Lay at the Man s feet. He now grasped the end of it in Liis right hand Anil Shook it out a the air until the whole length of the. Cord was undulating before him in i thou Sand flying curves. Suddenly the move ment changed from vertical to horizon Tal until it seemed As if the Cord were weaving itself into a fabric before their eyes and in fact in a wonderfully Brief time a mat a Yard in diameter had been thus manufactured which Heinan spread out. On the floor and seated himself upon. He lifted his eyes and upward and Tho audience following his Guze perceived a scrap off Hite tissue paper floating downward toward him. He held out his Finger and the paper rested non it it flattered there for a moment he breathed upon it and it grew rapidly larger it was now a White Hen which flapped its wings and clucked. Tho Man placed it on the floor it ran about but finally settled Down find immediately Laid an egg. No sooner had it done this than the Man seized it by the neck whirled it around Aud it was once More a scrap of White tissue paper which floated up and disappeared in Tho vaulted ceiling. The Man took the egg Between his forefinger and thumb looked attentively at it and put it on the floor again balancing it on its end. Then lifting ills hand a Little he pointed downward at the Apex of the egg. Presently ii steam or smoke began to from the Apex arising like a vaporous pillar and aug menting in volume until it was several feet in height and birth. It now took on a revolving motion which became exceedingly rapid and it was seen that it was assuming shape and solidity and Moid a general murmur of amazement from Tho audience it stood before them As a human Beautiful girl enveloped in a White Robe is soft us Mist. She remm Ned erect and apparently unconscious of her environment her dark Bosforo been beheld by my of the count s guests.

She held her closed fan in her i flit hand. A Dis Tance of three or four Yards separated her from Tho figure. The Juggler still squatted on i. Wit. As Sallie approached i Forward and Drew some on thu floor with his Finger. Within a Pace of t a apparition Diillio and looked at it. A hash fell upon the Assembly. No one knew what to think or what was to Hap pen. Kallio stretched Forth her Arm and with the tip of her fun touched the figure on the shoulder. Immediately a thick or steam arose enveloping nmriiiiihi1. From View not Only the figure but Tho tid Sallie As Well. A loud none know Sheik of pronounced borne words in an unknown Tongue. Follow ing this a piercing Albriek was heard Echo Uil by Many present. Every one started Many sprung to their feet. The . Sallie was stand ing hero alone. Both the Juggler and the apparition had vanished leaving no Trace Boli Tinl. Unt Bailie grasped in her Hind no longer her 1 a but a Long japanese Dagger with a carved Hilt. The Point of the Dagger seemed to be dripping with blood. Sho staggered turned partly round and would have fallen but the count was near in Rand Ca Glit or in . Flu1 Iii Pony wan in confusion. A sofa was brought and was Laid it. She . Carry her into Trio East said the count to two of the nubian servants. Doctor he added turning to the eminent woman s physician who was one of Trio guests May i request you to take charge of mrs. Trent one of Trio maids shall attend and anything you mind will be at your disposal. I in indeed he went on turning to the others to Tiht this should have j happened. Had it Burn possible to fore see we understand so Little of the ways of Tih be Oriental wizards that we must to cautious How we meddle with them. I presume he is As badly fright ened As any one. I need not Tell Yon that he will lie held strictly accountable if anything serious of this but i Trust there will nothing. Mrs. Trent has Groat i daresay Kho will be better observed miss Fitz Murray. Indeed now that they had recovered from their first scare the company were inclined to rally themselves and one another on the even ing s sensation and there was perhaps a tendency to make Sailie the Scapegoat of the affair. If she had not interfered nil would have gone Well. Some of the ladies who had been not far from faint ing themselves whispered to one an other that nothing else wits to be expected of a woman like that Slu had taken advantage of having formerly been the owner of the House to Force herself upon the co int who was too polite to deny anybody and of course had made an exhibition of herself. Meanwhile general Bristow or. Roy Lance or. Montague Trossett and other gentlemen were discussing the Juggler performance and had formulated at least two theories to explain Tho whole mystery. But All agreed that it waa the most astonishing thing Ever witnessed in new York and when or. Venables appeared Arm. Looking out smiling and unit rating the general Pardon for having to misbehaved Trio complexion of affairs resumed its former geniality. Tho tables had been removed Iho stormed and Palmitate a mid Tho people who danced begun to look at Ono another and beat time with their feet As if apparitions wizards and bloody daggers Scro but u diverting preliminary to real enjoyment. Society uniformly deprecated serious views and if its spirits Havo been pushed for a moment laughs so much the More lightly Tho moment after. But while the Ball was it its height Sallie took an Opportunity to withdraw unobserved making a private signal to the count As she did so. To followed her to the cast room where for a moment they were alone. I Havo to thank you for a delightful Sho said. I can never forget the pleasure has been re to Nice the count bowing. I feel that i know you so much Bat Ter to Iau i did before i came Sallie continued. In Uit you had seemed mysterious Ami enigmatic Al you wore something like a Prince in a fairy tale you might undergo transformation at any to moment into a Hobgoblin or a Wisp of but i think Thi re can never again Benny doubt be tween us As to on True relations to cacti i am glad to hear you say responded the count courteously. Sri Lii eyed him for a moment and then Sti Phi d close in front of him changing tone of polished sarcasm to one of intense earnestness. I can be a Good Friend and a Good Sho Taul. You have nearly everything that a Man can wish for. Count do Lisle but if you had Toiuo As much it would still i Worth your while to make a woman like i your Friend. And i am ready to join hands with you on any terms you air Odiose. What Olivit can you possibly Havo to i Havo done you no harm. If 1 Havo harmed any Friend of yours it was unknowingly and 1 no willing to make coins Shull we be am i so Sallie certainly did not look so at that moment. There was something not in Yeii Cally but super humanly attractive Esther Yiv.

Trio House to Latch the door behind him another person who had Boon hiding in Tho Shadow of thu Wirch slipped in unseen and went up stairs to Tho Library where Harry Trent kit. Ono of the witnesses 1 think testified that Sho had seen a Short Man with a dark Beard speaking with Trent Lato that that evidence was not believed. But suppose it weit True How would it affect me i fear your imagination will got you into trouble count de men s clothes Are by women and a false Beard is easily Cuoio said he with a slow inquisitorial smile. With Means and a will our solves Hauler riddles than to a in three years mrs. take care she exclaimed her eyes flashing in her White face. You Are saying what Yon can never prove i can Only she went of con trolling her emotion by a Effort that you have been made Trio Vic Tim of a cock and Bull Story by a Man who is believed to to dead but whom i now know to be Darke. To is Here under your Protection and is rash enough to play ghostly pranks of what purpose i won t attempt to guess. But he is an escaped convict. Let him look to himself 1 will denounce "1 give you full leave to do the count answered unconcern edly. But i must Tell you that there is Only one escaped convict in this House and that is myself. Is it possible you have not recognized me i am Sallio stood motionless Many thoughts whirling in her brain. My claim to be count do Lisle is also legitimate however As such things to went on. But a woman like you should have a better memory. It scorns have likewise forgotten your Friend Aljimi Garcia though you must have known that i lived Many years in in Dia and became an adept Indian magic. But the denunciation let uie Call he stepped to thu door and pushed in open. General Bristow was passing talking confluent fully to miss Fitz Mur Ray who was leaning on his Arm. From the distance came the throbbing of Tho music playing a Waltz. Pardon said the count to the two hero is a lady who has something to say to of mrs. Said Tho general coming Forward Aro we to lose you you re All right i Trust that Juggler was enough to scare i Only wanted to did t Mealii to disturb was Havo a Little Tea at my House tomorrow after Sallie Fixl us lie ir.1 i i-1.ovc.l Ino rimmed Eye this Alti Ivd his appt Vance not Kitle.

By Means of that will and of the certificate of marriage also a forgery but written on u printed form which you had procured while travelling in France you made Good your claim to thu estate. Will you toll them i will repeat no such foolish re plied Sallie Stu tidily. Flow could i have forged a copy of the genuine will unless i had had the genuine will to copy from and How could i have become possessed of i will Tell you since you have forgot said Tho count. You found thu genuine will among Harry Trent s papers on the night that he vans indeed i was with him on that night then it appears you were. You were the last to see him alive.
