The Secret House

Author of

THE STRANGE COUNTESS, THE SQUEALER, Etc.

"The occupant of the royal box. She keeps in the shadow all the time. She is not a detective, too, I suppose?" he added, sarcastically. He looked around.

"Poltavo," he said, dropping his voice, "I want to know who that woman is in the opposite box - I have a reason."

The orchestra was playing a soft intermezzo, and of a sudden the lights went down in the house, hushed to silence as the curtain went slowly up upon the second act. There was a shifting of chairs to distribute the view, a tense moment of silence as the chorus came down a rocky defile and then - a white pencil of flame shot out from the royal box and a sharp crash of a pistol report.

"My God!" gasped Mr. Farrington, and staggered back.
