The Mystery of
"The Strange Case
Copyright, hy Hsntell Parrish
Synopsis.—In a New Tork Jewelry
store Philip Severn, United States
consular agent, notices a small box
which attracts him. He purchases
it. Later he discovers in a secret
compartment a writing giving a
clew to a revolutionary movement
la this country seeking to overthrow
the Chilean government. The writ-
ing mentions a rendezvous, and
Severn decides to investigate. Find-
ing the place mentioned in the writ-
ing apparently deserted, Severn
visits a saloon in the vicinity. A
woman in the place Is met by a
man, seemingly by appointment,
and Stevern, his suspicions aroused,
follows them. They go to the des-
ignated meeting place, an aban-
doned iron foundry. At the ren-
dezvous Severn is accepted as one
of the conspirators and admitted.
He meets a stranger who addresses
him as Harry Daly. The incident
plays into Severn's hands and he
accepts it His new acquaintance
is a notorious thief, "Gentleman
George" Harris. Concealed, Severn
hears the girl address the conspira-
tors. She urges them to hasten
the work of revolution. The girl
discovers Severn listening. She ac-
cepts his explanation of his pres-
ence and asks him to meet her next
day. He tells her his name is
Daly. She Is "Miss Conrad."
I began to think. Harris had gone
away with the others, and left me
there alone. I heard voices speaking
earnestly in the distance, but .without
venturing forth from my hiding place.
Then he appeared suddenly, bringing
in his arms a bottle and a box of
"Touch a match to the gas-jet,
Daly," he said, feeling for the table in
the dark. "That's better. ■ 1 hung
around until the gang 'all got out, so
as to be sure we were safely alone.

We are as secure here as we would be
at the bottom of the sea. This is
Alva's whisky, but good—I sampled it
He sat on the table, nursing his
knee, rather pleased with himself, I
thought, a cigar thrust between his
lips, the blue smoke curling up before
his face. I ignored the invitation to
drink, but helped myself to a weed,
waiting for him to open conversation.
"Well," he said finally, "everything
is going according to Hoyle, but there
is a knot or two yet to be untied be-
fore we squeeze that million. Did you
hear what was said in there?"
"No; you told me to stick here."
"Still in a way you're on—Waldron
must have spilled part of the scheme
to you, that's what got your foot in
the mess. H—1! I know Ivan Wal-
dron, the d—d Russian Jew; he'd
double-cross his best friend. What
was it he told you?"
"Not very much," I said, wondering
how far I had better go, yet feeling it
necessary to relate enough to convince
him that I was really conversant with
the situation, and endeavoring to imi-
tate his Style of speech. "According to
his story there was a gang of con-
spirators here—birds from South
America mostly—who had been round-
ed up by this fellow Alva to pull off
some frightfulness, or other. I didn't
catch on to just what it was, and per-
haps Waldron "himself didn't know, or
care. Some revolution, I took it to
be. Waldron explained how he got
Knot or Two Yet to
hold of the scheme. It seems he's in
with the bunclr to some extent; that
is, they use him whenever they need
to, and occasionally hand bim a bunch
pf money—it's never too dirty for him
to touch. Anyhow, he knew enough
to put me wise to this dump, gave me
the pass-word, and all that. It looked
as though there might be something
In it, so I blew over here tonight Just
v to take a look. I was merely prowl-
ing around when I ran Into you."
"I tee," he muttered, as I came to
an end, ^bewi ig savagely on his cigar.
"Did the Russian say anything about

ciear run for the money, except his
"The dirty dog. Because I didn't
show up on the dot, he was ready to
ditch me. Now listen, and Ml tell you
the straight story. I'm going to need
you, and we'll divide fifty-fifty, leav-
ing this guy to suck his thumbs. Is
that a go?"
"He's sure nothing to me—shoot."
Harris poured out a stiff drink, and
put It down; then touched a match to
the extinguished cigar.
"Waldron sent me a cable in Eng-
land about a month ago," he explained
briefly. "He didn't make the thing
very clear, only that he had a big deal...
on, and wanted me in on it I had
made enough to get back on, and took
a second-class passage on the Vulcan.
It was not a big boat, and, to escape
close inspection, I went aboard at
Queenstown. At that time I had no
more notion what was up than a blind
rat. I was just desperate enough to
take a chance."
He paused and relit his stub, with
an oath at finding It again useless.
"Then things begun to happen. I
was room-mate with a bird named
Horner, who claimed to live in De-
troit. He must have cottoned to me,
for we got a bit chummy, and in that
way I picked odds and ends out of bim
which set me thinking. He was quite
a foxy bird—one of these tall; raw-
boned, secretive cusses, who talk a
lot, but never say nothing, and he
came near 'getting my goat. I went
through his baggage, of course, but
that was just ordinary stuff—he only
had one grip, which he left unlocked;
but I did get onto a pocket belt the
fellow wore around his waist He
never let that get away from him
night or day. I studied every d—n
way I could think up to get a peep at
It but nothing gave me a chance. I
came near going bugs over the thing."
He laughed, exhibiting a row of
rather ugly teeth behind bis thir lips.
"Then the devil must have helped
me. One night—five days ot^t, for we
were a slow boat—we ran Into a b—1
of a storm. We both of us tumbled
out and began hustling on our duds.
He was .trying to get a shoe on, and
went plunging head-on into the side of
the ship. I reckon It nearly brained
him, but, to make things sure, I hand-
ed him one to the ja,w before ne got
his senses, and he went out for the
count. Then, believe me, I didn't lose
no time in frisking the guy—and, say,
what do you think J found?"
' I shook my head, unwilling to inter-
rupt, fascinated with his description.
"The fellow was a revolutionary
agent I didn't get onto all of it then
—I didn't have time, but I found a let-
ter of credit for a million dollars, and
a memoranda of how it was to'be de-
livered. * The d—n thing wasn't any
good to me—it was to be paid t9 this
fellow by a banker in New York
named Krantz—but it sure made my
mouth water jtist to see it—a million
dbllars, good old U. S. currency. Can
you beat it?\'
"Looked easy—you had it and you
didn't have it"
"You said it, Daly. I didn't dare
keep the thing, and it wouldn't have
done me any good if I had; there was
no way of ta,y cashing the paper. What
the h—1 could I do? If I denounced
him, the game was all off; if I held
on to the stuff h^'d report his loss
soon as he landed in New York, and
that letter of credit wouldn't be worth
the paper it was written on . . . Say,
I was in some boat; but believe me,
,1 had no notion of giving up that-mil-
lion—it* looked darned good."
"I should say yes," and I leaned for-
ward to show my interest. "And from
what I know of you, Harris, that guy
had no show on earth. Did you croak
He grinned, evidently pleased at the
note of admiration in my voice, and
tossed down another drink.
"That never ain't been in my line.
Of course I was tempted to—a cool
million would tempt any guy. But I
just shoved everything back exactly
where it come from, and fetched the
steward. Between us we hoisted Hor-
ner back into the bunk and doused
him with water till he came to. First
thing he did was to feel for that belt,
abd he never got wise that It had
dver been touched. Anyhow, he never
ifet on to no suspicion."
The Deserted Automobile.
I was impatient for him to continue,
but he sat there chuckling to himself,
and toying with a fresh cigar.
"Well, what did you do?"
"Played It safe and sure. I'm too
old a bird to be caught napping. I
put in most of that night holding wet
cloths to Horner's head, and thinking
out some plan of action. Before morn-
ing he thought I was the best felldw
he ever knew, and I had the guy
where I wanted him. For one of his
breed, he was rather a friendly cuss.
Tills was how I mapped it out. That
letter of credit/had to be turned Into
currency before it could do me any
pood, and the only way that might be
done wan through this guy Alva. I
must get to him somehow in a way
that would put me next his scheme,
so I'd know when he had the cash.
Once I got these details attended to
In little old New York, the swag was
as good as my own. I knew a dozen
guys that would bump Horner off for
a hundred if it come to that—so the
price wasn't high. A million! Oh,
man; and it had dropped right Into
my lap. But to do this it was neces-
sary that I should be Horner. That
was as plain as the nose on my face;
as Horner, coming with credentials,
and a letter of credit, Alva would be
bound to receive me with open arms—
see! After that I figured it would
be easy enough. But how was I to be-
"You couldn't divvy with him?"
"I should say not; he was a square
guy. It didn't take me five days to
find that out. So there wasn't but one,
way out of it—I had to put Horner
out of commission, and cop his belt
It was either that or lose a million."
I looked at him, with a sickening
feeling of horror I found hard to sup-
press, but he went oa indifferently In
the same cool, calm voice.
"There's no use going into details,
Daly. We landed good friends, and
Horner was in a strange land. You

him the first afternoon down on the
East side. I never did know just what
became of the fellow, but the next
morning I.was alone in a back room
in Greenwich, and had his belt with
me." He chuckled grimly. "There
wasn't much In it, except the letter
of Credit and a notation as to where
and when Krantz could' be seen pri-
vately. It was the next night Harris
was to call on the banker up in Le
"Le Compte? What number?"
"247 Le Compte. Do you know any-
"No; only Le Compte is an old
stamping ground of mine. Go on; you
went there, of course."
"Sure. Krantz didn't know me from
Adam, not even my name. I was just
*108' to him, but he was mighty nerv-
ous, just the same, and anxious to get
away. I could see that. I don't think
it was his house either; just an ordi-
nary-looking shack, brick, three stories
and a basement. .
"That banker was business all right,
and he put me through the whole
bundle of tricks before he'd even let
me sit down. I had to lie some, but
mostly I was posted well enough so
as to give him what he was looking
for. Anyhow, I passed, and after that
he was rather decent. Took me into
a room and gave me a drink, besides
asking me about affairs in Europe.
H—1, I didn't know only what I'd
seen in the papers—but I gave him an
earful, and on the strength of his
name I cussed England for all 1
was worth—which at that time was
about a million bucks. Then I handed
over the letter of credit, and he
jammed it into his pocket like It was
a scrap of paper. I don't remember
that he even looked at it. After that
he was for getting rid of me, the soon-
where Alva was, so I hung on, telling
the old guy I had a private message
that I had to deliver personally—
straight from them financiers in Lon-
don. So, after skirmishing a while,
he jotted down an address on a bit
of paper, and the next thing I knew
I was out in the street, with that
gripped in my mitt."
