It had been reported for some days
that Santoine had come to Seattle di

when this was admitted, his associ

Warden had proclaimed ; this attack
Upon Sanioine. so similar to that
which had slain War.'vn. and deliv

death, must be of the gravest signifi

moment with this fuller recognition
of the seriousness of" the disaster
which had cotre upon this man in

to the surgeon.
"Can you do anything for him here.
Doctor?" he asked.
The surgeon glanced down the car.

"It's occupied hy his daughter."
"We'll take him in there, then."
The four men lifted the inert figure
of Hasil Santoine. curried it into the
drawing room and laid it on its back
upon the bed.
"I have my instruments," Sinclair
said. "I'll get them; but before I de
cide to do anything, I ought to see

consent is necessary before any opera

the aisle and took her hand,

She shut her eyes before she an

"Thank you; I did want to know,"
Katon acknowledged, lie moved away
from them, and sat down in one of
the seats further down the car.
Soon he left for his own car, and

feeling the blood drive suddenly upon
his heart. Then, recollecting that he
had no right to g to her. he went on.
Suspicion Fastens on Eaton.
Katon found his car better filled
than il had been before, for the people
shifted from the car behind had been
scattered through the train. Keeping
himself To his section, he watched the
car and outside the windows for
signs of what Investigation Connery
and Avery were making. Whoever
had attacked Santoine limst still be
upon the train, for m one could have
escaped through the snow. No one
could now escape. Avery find Connery
and whoever else was making investi
gation!) with them evidently were not
letting anyone know that an investi
gation was being made. Katon went
fo bin.h; on his way back from the
diner, he saw the conductors wiih pa
pers in their hands .piestioning a pas
senger. They evidently were starting
systematically through the cars, exam
ining each p.-ron; thev were making
the plea of nooe-sitv of a report to

"I am unable to do that, either."
Connery spoke again to the I'ullnian
'ondil' or, and they conversed inau
dibly for a minute. "That is all,
then." Connery said finally.
He signed his name to the sheet
on which he had written Katon's an
swers, and handed It to the i'ullnian
conductor, who also signed it and re
turned it to him; then they went on
to the passenger now occupying Sec
tion Kmir. without making any fur
Katon told himself that there should
be no danger to himself from this in
quiry, directed against no one, but
including comprehensively everyone
on the train. When the conductors
had left the car, he put his magazine
away and went into the men's com
partment to smoke and calm his
nerves. His return to America had
passed the- bounds of recklessness;
and what a situation he would now be
in if his actions brought even serious
suspicions against him! He finished
his first cigar and was debating
whether to light another, when he
heard voices outside the car. and
opening the window and looking out.
he saw Connery and thr brakeman
struggling through the snow and mak
ing, apparently, some search. Pres
ently Connery passed the door of the
compartment carrying something
loosely wrapped in a newspaper in
his hands. Katon finished his cigar
and went back to his seat in the car.
As he glanced at the seat where
he had left his locked traveling bag,
he saw that the bag was no longer
there. . It stood now between the two
seats on the floor, and picking it up
and looking at it, he found it unfas
tened and with marks about the lock
which told plainly that it had been
He set It on the floor between his
knees and checked over its contents.
Nothing had been taken, so far as
he could tell; for the bag had con-
tained only clothing, the Chinese die -
tionarv and the box of cigars, and
these all apparently were still there.
He had laid out the things on the
seat across from him while checking
them up, and now he began to put
them back in the bag. Suddenly he
noticed that one of his socks was
missing; what had been eleven pairs
