Carmelo Neri nodded in acquiescence. Either sight deceives or else this abandoned villain had tears glittering in Tho Depths of his wicked Eves. Tho gendarme made to a sign and 1 withdraw. Almost at Tho same moment the officer in command of Tho Little detachment appeared his spurs clinking with measured metallic music on the hard stones of the pavement to sprang on his horse and gave Tho word the crowd dispersed to the right and left the horses were put to a Quick Trot and in a few moments the whole party with Tho Bulky frowning form of the brigand in their midst had disappeared. The people broke up into Little groups talk ing excitedly of what had occurred and scattered hero and there returning to their Homes and occupations and More swiftly than one could have imagined possible the great Square was left Al most empty. I paced up and Down for a while thinking deeply i had before mind s Eye the picture of Tho slight fair Teresa As described by the sicilian Captain lying dead in the solitudes of Montemaggior with that self inflicted wound in her breast which had Jet her free of All men s love and persecution. There were sonic women then who refer death to ill Delitz strange com Mon women of course they not such As this brigand s mistress your daintily fed silk Robed Duchess would find a Daggar somewhat a vulgar con would rather choose a Lover or better still a score of lovers. It is Only brute ignorance that selects a grave instead of Edu cation instructs us More wisely mid teaches us not to be Over squeamish about such a trifle As breaking a word or Promise. Blessed ago of Progress age of steady advancement when the Apple of vice is so cunningly disguised and so prettily painted that we can actually Sot it on a porcelain dish and hand it about among our i rinds As a valuable and Choice fruit of and no one finds out Tho fraud we Aro practising nay we scarcely perceive it ourselves it is such an excellent counterfeit As i walked to and fro i found self continually passing the head office of the Carah Inkerl and acting on a Sud Den impulse of curiosity. 1 at last entered the building determined to ask fur a few particulars concerning the brigand s capture. I was received by a handsome and intelligent looking Man who glanced atthe with which i presented myself and with courteous affability.

A few stray hits of in formation Glei inc lure and there put 113 on the Light was he caught easily or did he show he gave himself up like a Lamb Sig h happened in this Way. One of our men followed the women who lived with Neri one Teresa and traced her up to a certain Point the Corner of a narrow Mountain she Dis appeared. He reported this and there we sent out an armed party. Those crept at Midnight two by iwo till they were formed in a close ring round the place where Neri judged to be. With the first beam of morning they rushed in upon him and took Hin prisoner. It appeared that he showed no merely said. I expected you he was found sitting by the dead body of his mistress was stabbed and newly bloc Diing. No doubt i lulled her. Though he swear Tho com or arc As easy to him As breathing. Hot were his comrades 1 thought to commanded a Largo Sci he did Signor and we caught three of the principals Only a fortnight ago hut of Tho others no Trace can be found. 1 suppose Caryoln Lii self Dis missed them and sent them fur and wid through Ilin country.

Gryl himself on Side As he is surely Ever on Tho Side of Justice let not the unfaithful think that because they say Long prayers or go regularly and devoutly to Church with Meek faces and piously folded hands that Tho Wisdom is deceived hereby.

Business was resumed As usual pleasure lad again Lier votaries and society whirled round onco More in to girl by Wilu As though it had never a Toft dancing. 1 arrived in the City somewhat Early in the Day. And had time Inieke arrangements for plan of action. I secured the most splendid suite of apartments in the est hotel the c whole Ishi neut with a vast idea of wealth and importance. I casually mentioned to Tho landlord that i desired to pin Chase a Carriage and i needed a first class Vii lot and a few other rifles of the like sort and added hat i relied on his Good advice and Immen Dalton As to Tho places where i should Best obtain All 1 sought.

And now the evening of first Day n a plus came and i Tho supposed onto Cesare Oliva the envied and flattered Noble took the first step towards by vengeance. It was one of Tho love inst evenings possible even in that Lovely and a soft Breeze blew in from the sea the ski was Pearl like and pure As an Opal yet Bright with delicate shifting Clouds of Crimson and Pale mauve Small Vinecy Hecks of radiance that looked like a shown of blossoms fallen from some far Nevis lilo Ilo Worland. Tho Waters of the a were slightly ruffled by the wind and curled into tender Little dark Blue Waves tipped with Light fringes of foam. After dinner i went out and took Way to a Well known and popular cafe which ise Tobea favorite haunt of mine in Lac Days when i was known As Fabio Romani. Guido Ferrari was a constant lab stun of Tho place and i Felt that i should Lind him there. The Brilliant Rose White and Gold saloons were crowded and owing to the pleasant Cool Ness of Tho air there were hundreds of Little tables pushed far out. Into the Street at which groups of persons were seated enjoying ices wine or Coffee and congratulating each other on Tho agree Able news of the steady decrease of Tho dest Lonco that had ravaged Tho City. I glanced covertly yet quickly round. T was not mistaken. Yes and again looked at inv thin t Imo with More interest and something of uneasiness.

A Gran Uio a 1 exclaimed with a pretended Start of shocked Surprise. So Young he what will you Signor h was la Pesta there was no remedy. La Pesla cares nothing for youth or age and spares neither Rich nor for a moment i leaned head on hand affecting to to overcome by Tho suddenness of the news.
