RICHARD nibbed hla chin. "If she
reMly wants to disappear, of course,
ha won't be nbto to uo her real nanus or
to supply testimonials or fererences. That
will handicap her seriously If sho trlea to
get a. job as a governess or teacher, which
is probably the first thing a girl with uni
versity training wouia think of. "Would
the bs likely to think of the stage?"
"I Jorl't know why, but I cannot im
agine her doing bo,"
"Nor would she be attracted toward tho
career of a shop assistant or a teashop
lrt," mused Richard. His ear caught tho
tap of the typewriter In the outer office.
"What about that?" he suggested. "She
might try to get a billet as a typist."
"She might," agreed Martin, forlornly,
"but I shouldn't think she would relish It
after tlie life she has been accustomed
to," Suddenly he perceived a gleam of
hope In Rlchnrd's suggestion. "I tell you
what I'll do; I'll advertise for a typist:
'Must bo fin M. A. of St. Andrews, G feet
1 Inches In height, and iiavesome knowl
edge of Bpanlsb.' Thcro couldn't be two
girls looking for a job at the' same mo
ment wlt,h exactly those qualifications,"
"For, which reason Miss Flessy would
perceive at once mat tne advertisement
was a trap for her. If she Is a girl of
sense she will know that men don't
want St. A.'s to do their typing and do
1 not insist upon a certain height. If you
were advertising for a mannequin or a
chorus girl "
"What Is a mannequin?" asked Martin.
Richard explained. Martin shook his
head. "She wouldn't do that sort of
thing, I'm convinced," he said. He looked
at his brother, as though debating some
idea with him. "What about a com
panion or governess?" he asked,
"There again ehe would be handicapped
by tho want of testimonials."
"Not necessarily, It seems to me."
The two mfcn looked at each other for a
moment in silence. "I've got It!" an
nounced the elder. "That advertisement
dodge might be worth a try after all!"
"What Is your scheme?"
"This. We will advertise for a com
panion and reader to a young lady of
good position. I don t know exactly how
they word these things 'Must be well
read In the classics, know a little Spanish,
have traveled, be of good appearance,'
etc So far so good. That will Interest
her. Then this will catch her: 'Previous
experience desirable, but not essential,
Education up to university" level, but
diplomas not insisted upon. Xdy with
out connection In London preferred.'
How's that, eap'n?"
Martin smiled his approval. "It's a
cleverly conceived bait," he admitted.
"You don't think It too obviously designed
; for her, eh?"
"I think not We need say nothing
f about age well, let's say under 30, so as
to Umit the number of applications. And,
you see, there's no allusion to a Scottish
university, as In your absurd advertise
ment, to put her on the qui vlve." Rich
ard slapped his leg "Put that Jn the
Times and all t)te mornlne papers and
she'll rise to tne ecu ime trout in wet
Miether." He touched a bell. "I'll have
It drafted "
Martin restrained lilro. "Halt a tick,

"To the advertising asenoy, of coursn."
"Hut wouldn't a personal application be
P belter for our purpose?"
"It would. I grant: cut sno wouldn't do

Martin was Infected by his brother's

"If she has made up her mind to earn

You will probably have a telephone call

"I shall employ a detective, anyhow,"
"Thero would be no harm In that. I

Richard's expectations were realized,
As Martin crossed Victoria street at tho
tea hour ho noticed an ordinary looking
man step out from a doorway and saun
ter after him. Later on he saw tho ame
man seated at a tablo In a distant corner
of tho tearoom, ovldently watching him.
He mentioned this to Richard, who sug
gested various prnnks that they could
play upon tho man. Martin shrugged his
tnouiucrs. "Tho poor beggar has his liv
ing to earn," he said "Why make It any
harder for him? When It Is necessary to
give him tho slip I shall know how to
Notwithstanding, Rlohard sent the office
boy out to tho man to present him with
a slice of bread and Jam and "Mr. Arrol's
Tho sea Is a good school for patience,
and Martin awaited the result of tho ad
vertisement and of the Independent In
quiries ho had set nfoot somewhat In the
mood In which ho had often put to sea
whllo matters wore left In suspense
nshore. The servants at tho flat had
orders to bring all letters to tho ofilco as
soon no they arrived: ho seldom strayed
for more than an hour torether from tho
Immediate neighborhood of Victoria street.
Should Maud at last decide to wrlto he
took care that sho should not bo kept
waiting very long for an answer.
Mcantlmo ho pondered over the plans
originally conceived In tho dead admiral's
brain nnd now, after 13 years, become the
property of himself nnd his partner. Ho
would give much to meet Sydney Dereve,
The man might havo come by tho papers
qulto honestly, but It told against him
that he had watted so many years before
attempting to make use of them. Mrs.
Plessey had declared that her husband
hod been shot by the agent of a foreign
Power. If Dereve had been that agent It
was difficult to understand why ho should
havo retained possession of the plans In
stead of handing them over to his prin
cipals. It seemed more likely that he was
himself a spy and had copied the plans
when they had come Into possession of
the foreign Power.
In that cose ho must be deceiving his
brother also. The designs could not be
called' original If they had already been
carried Into effect in a government tor
pedo works somewhere or other in Eu
rope. Of course these might not be the plans
which the admiral had agreed to sell.
They might have been disposed of before
or after his death In a perfectly legiti
mate manner to some one or other; but
the legitimate purchaser would not keop
them In his pocketbook for 13 years. .No,
Martin had no doubt thnt the papers be
fore him were copies of the designs which
had been stolen from Admiral Plessey's
desk by his murderer,
"Had they been the originals," he re
flected, "I should only have had to put
them In the fire to destroy all proofs of
the admiral's guilt. As copies they may
at least prove clues."
"What do you think of those plans?"
asked Dereve, scanning his face eagerly.
"It Is a splendid Idea, but It Is not
original," said Martin decisively.
The engineer started. "Not original!
Good heavens, what do you mean? Whero
have they been executed?"
"I will not even swear that they have
ever been executed; so far they may be
orlBlnal. But I distinctly remember the
lato Admiral Plessey formulating such an
Idea while I was at hla side watching the
naval maneuvers off Here Haven In 189"
Martin leaned back In his chair and met
the troubled gaze of his partner. "It's as
well you should know this," ho said,
Dereve's face brightened. "Well, what
do we care7 It does not follow because
the admiral conceived such an Idea that
he ever took any steps to work It out,
much less give It practical shape. Coin-,
cldences of this sort are of constant re
currence In all branches of science. Look
at the discovery of Neptune by Adams
nnn ie verner at the same time, and the
simultaneous conclusions of Darwin and
Russel Wallace But It may not be
entirely a coincidence. There were ofll
oero standing by the admiral when he
lormuiatea this Idea, I suppose?"
"At that particular moment I was the
onlv other person within hearing."
"Well, oven so, he must have spoken
about It after to other people. You know
how Ideas get passed from one brain to
another. Long after tho Idea died In the
admiral's brain It came to life again Jn
my brother. That's how It was,"
Arrol rested his head on his hand and
tapped on the blotting pad before him.
"I know as a fact that the admiral did
work upon the Idea and that he was
working on It some little time before his
death. You don't know how he died
do you?" '
"No, I don't. I don't know that I ever
heard of him."
"I am not likely to forget." said Martin
with bitter emphasis. "He waa found shot
In his study by me, and because I was
the first to find him I was charged with
the crime. I waa acquitted, of course."
"You must tell me about that some
other day," said the engineer, far too
much troubled about his plans to listen
to the recital of any tragedy, oven one
affecting his partner. He walked up and
down the room, his hands In his pockets,
his brows contracted.
"The only question for us," he said at
length, "Is whether these designs have
actually been carried Into effect They
have not ben patented In this country or
any other Of that our patent agents
have made sure."
"But for all we know," observed Mar
tin, "a whole shoal of torpedoes of this
precise pattern may be reposing In some
foreign yard unknown to the Intelligence
departments of other Powers,"
"By Heaven, that Is sol" cried Dereve,
his sallow face lighting up. "Don't you

The cablegram drafted to his satisfac
tion, tho engineer touched the bett again.
The office boy again nppcored. "Send this
oft right now," his master ordered. The
boy took the form and glanced at tho
address. He paused nnd looked at Derovo.
"Beg pardon, sir," ho said, "I see this
Is addressed to Mr. Sydney Dereve."
"Well, sir, a gentleman called in herd
this morning the Instant after I came
before any one else as here nnd asked
me If this was Mr. Sydney Dereve's of
fice, I said no. That you was Mr. Kus
tnqe Dereve, sir. Ho asked If I knew
whero Mr. Sydney was, and I said I be
lieved ho was In New York, sir. He said
he would call again."
"Well, that's all right. If he calls
again send him In to me."
"Walt a moment!" Martin Btopped tho
lad. "What wns tho gentleman like "
"Well, ho was nothing particular to
look nt, sir. l'vo seen him hanging about
tho street the last day or two, but I
thought ho was going to speak to you,
Martin listened attentively. "Thanks,
you mny go," ho said; and tho lad hur
ried off with the telegram.
"Somebody Syd owes somo money to,
suggested Derevo Indifferently. "Do you
think you know tho man7"
"I suspect It is tho man who I thought
was shadowing ma for reasons best
known to himself," said Martin guard
edly. "It seems It was your brother ho
wanted after all." But ho wns puzzled.
The man had certainly dogged his movo
ments, which thero scorned no reason for
doing If ho was Inquiring after a man in
America. On the other hand, he could
not conceive why any one should be In
terested both In him nnd Sydney Dereve.
Ho resolved to challenge tho man should
ho sco him ngnln. But when ho looked
up nnd down the street ho had disap
peared. The partners lunched together. Derevo
bctnyed that restlessness and excitabil
ity which seems to bo rapidly acquired In
tho New World. Ho strolled In nnd out
of the offlco throughout the afternoon
waiting for tho reply to his cable. It came
about 6. He tore open the envelope, read
tho dispatch and throw It on the desk be
fore Martin with a very emphatio excla
"Imposslblo leave New Yoik. Detained
some time. Wrlto further particulars In
formation required. S. D "
"What do you think of that!" shouted
Dereve. "Won't como over, you see;
won't face the music! Looks as If we had
been had, Arrol,"
Arrol thought so, too, but preferred to
take a more optimistic tone. He drum
med on his desk for a moment, then
formed a quick decision.
"I'll go over there," ho said, "and have
a talk with him. You can't leave the
office nt this Juncture. There's that Cor
rlentes commission to attend to and tho
flotation of tho compnny. When does the
next boat leave?"
"Tomorrow Saturday "
After some discussion this plan wis
agreed to. Martin went over to the flat
to make tho necessary arrangements for
his depnrture. To his mild surprise ho
found Monty Dereve In the drawing
Monty Dereve's dark face flushed with
pleasure as Martin entered.
"I telephoned your brother," she ex
plained, "and as we had a lot to talk
about he told me to come on here. I guess
I've got hero sooner than he expected,
since the maid has had to go over to his
offlco to fetch him. Have you Just left
"Yes. I left htm pretty busy." Martin
drew a chair near to the girl nnd sat
down. "I'm sailing for 'God's own coun
try' tomorrow. Miss Dereve," he cald,
with a smile, "and hope to have the pleas
ure of a talk with your father."
Miss Dereva flushed again not alto
gether with pleasure, Martin suspected.
"Poor old pop," sho remarked pensively.
"I wonder what he Is doing over thero all
this while. Tell him It's time he came
over to Bee his little girl."
"I'll certainly do so, Miss Dereve, and
I'll do my best to bring him back with
me. Any commissions I can execute
candles, Ice water, popcorn, or peanuts?"
Tho girl smiled at the mild pleasantry
and looked with Interest at her uncle'o
partner. "I wish I were going with you,"
sho said, "I mean, of course, that I were
sailing by tho same boat"
"I wish to, too. By the way, have you
heard anything in reply to tho advertise
ment you were kind enough to Insert?"
"Oh, about that poor girl who ran away
from home? Why, no, not yet. Tell me,
Mr. Arrol, Is your brother very deeply In
terested in that young lady?"
"Richard? No, certainly not," replied
Martin with some heat.
"I guess It's you then," suggested the
girl searching his face. He looked at her
fixedly for a moment, and was about to
reply when Richard entered: He shook
hands heartily with hla visitor and apolo
gized for keeping her waiting.
Before we talk about anything we must
have tea," he declared.
The tea was brought by a neat maid
and served with a daintiness which is not
at all peculiar to woman-ruled house
holds. Martin talked of his approaching
trip to America, and was uncomfortably
conscious that Monty Dereve was listen
ing to him avidly. Richard's attempts to
secure her attention were almost disre
garded. Seeing this, Martin presently
rose and announced that he had to attend
ta. his packing. Ab he shook hands he
felt hers press hla warmly and noticed
the earnest look in her eyes.
"Good luck, Mr. Arrol, and come back
soon," she said.
As he looked up a l'ght seemed to flicker
in his dull, clouded eyes, to disappear In
"I I don't know you," he muttered
feebly, nudging the steward to proceed.
"Ilumbugl" ejaculated Martin, keeping
paco with him; "you know me well
enough. I'm Martin Arrol. So It seems
wa are to be shipmates this voyage We
shall have some Interesting yafns to
gether. You are fond of the sea, Mr.
Huron?" . . . ...
Tho unfortunate landsman closed his
eyes and leaned more heavily upon his
support. The steward smiled at Martin
derisive Inquiry. "I'm afraid tho gentle
man's rather queer, Blr." ho venturea
"I'll lend you n hand with him," volun
teered the sailor He gripped Huron by
his other arm and, not as gently as he
might have done, assisted the steward to
lead him down the Btnlrway and along
the nlley-nay. It was no Instinct of corn
passion that moved him. Seasickness Irt
any one seemed to Martin a rather absurd
weakness; In Huron It was, of course,
contemptible and horrid. But foreseeing

that his enemy would ' probably mako
very few appearances on oecK, no wieiiou
to get the number of his cabin with a
view to paying him a visit.
At tho entrance to hla cabin, Huron re
covered himself for nn Instant. "Thank
you," he said, bowing slightly to his rival.
"It's very Bood of you. I'm a rotten
sailor, as you see." Ho put his hand to
his head. He was Buffering from that
horrlblo ache In the eyelids wmcit is ono
of the accompaniments of this form or
nausea "Is Maud-Miss Pl"9-.nb?u"
"Good heavens, not" exclaimed Arrol,
retreating a step "Did you Imfislne sho
was? Oh, I seel" He slapped his thigh
and burst Into a loud laugh. "You were
out to follow UB-thought It was n run
away match! Poor beggar, you're fairly
launched on tho Atlantic, and there's no
reversing engines now! And to think that

Huron shook his head and clutched at
tho doorpost. "That wasn't It I bus
ness the other side. I'm too ill to talk
now Ugh. curso this ship!" The steamer
rave a roll and tho luckless passenger
fell head-long Into hla own cnDln.
Martin left him to the ministrations of
tho atoward, noted the numoer ra.
cabin, and proceeded to the upper deck, to
think out this new turn in the situation.
Ho found he had the, promenade deck
pretty much to himself. Tho galo atlrred
the pulso within him, he drew deep
k.tv,. r tha keen salt air. Ho lit a
pipe nnd paced to nnd fro. In spite of
Huron's disavowal ho was convinced that
he had hit on the explanation of his
presence aboard. Huron It Was who had
set that detectlvo to watch him, and,
hearing from hla spy that he had taken
the boat train to Liverpool, hod resolved
to intercept him at Qucenstown, expect
ing, of course, to find Maud with him.
Well, ho was sold beautifully sold!

Rlgby, "there Isn't a man on your travel

"Perhaps, but you'll havo to get mar

Mr Johnson as Rlgby tried to Interrupt.

Rlgby's mind traveled rapidly over his
list of acquaintances. Ho raised his neau,
and caught a pair of brown eyes watch
ing him from the desk In the far corner
of Mr, Johnson's office. The eyes be
longed to Johnson's prlvnte stenographer.
"No, I don't know a girl I'd caro to
marry, nor a girl who'd care to marry
"Well, I'll bo hanged!" ejaculated Mr.
Rlgby was standing up Ho had for
gotten the brown eyes by this time. Ho
usually forgot girls Just thlB easily.
"But I'll tell you this mucn, jur. juim
son, I don't propose to let a little thlnt;
like not having a wlfo stand between mo
and that Job. I'm going to got both in
side of the two weeks."
Then ho left the office.
Mr. Johnson, senior member of the John
son Manufacturing Company, chuckled.
Ho had liked Rlgby from tho hour tho
lad had started out In the Pennsylvonla
rnnl tt.rrilrrv in raII .Tnhnson Shoes. bUt
'ho would not vary his long-standing rulo
the best Jobs to tho married men. Wil
Hmot, who had long held tho Now York
territory, was going Into business for
himself, and his position wna tho ono
for which Rlgby was asking.
Charley Rlgby crossed tho sauare, his
hands thrust deeply Into his pockets, his
hat pulled over his eyes. Ho was think
ing about girls. When his father's money
had been swept away by lll-advlsod In
vestments he had cut loose from his
mother's people, who had alwajs resented
her marrlago with the visionary, easy
going Rlgby. Now ho wished that he
had kept In touch with them and their
social life. Naturally of gentle breeding
and lnstlnots, ho had not cared for the
class of girls ho mot In his llfo as a
commercial traveler, and he had a bit
of his father's dreamy nature, which car
ried him to the theatre and made him
happy In good books. Tho visionary
character wns shown In hla passion for
the racetrack It might almost be called
a gambling Instinct. There wns the nurse
who had titled him over tho malaria
fover, but she had told him tho first day
of his convalescence that sho was en
gaged. The daughter of tho biggest shoo
dealer In Scranton had Invited him to
dinner every time he called on hor father
but she was not Just the sort. He
drank two cocktails, only to bo more
deeply plunged Into despair. And matri
mony was a gamble, a lottery, after all.
It was Just tho same whether you knew
a girl a day or a year. You never really
knew her until you married her. Lots
of married men had told him so. Then
all of a sudden ha remembered the brown
eyes that had watched him during John
son's merciless catechism.
Just then Merrlfleld, the bookkeeper,
sauntered In for lunch, and Rlgby wel
comed him Joyously. After a few desul
tory Temarks he Inquired about the owner
of brown eyes.
"You remember Darnton, who was
killed In tho Somervllle collision last sum
mer? Well, she'a his daughter. Belle
Darnton. I think her mother's folks have
money, but she was too proud to ask
help, and sho lives with her mother's
maiden sister. I guess all they have Is
her little salary,"
That night he walked home with Miss
Brown-eyes. The next night he called,
the third he took her to the theatre
but all the while the brown eyes nevor
met his. And Sunday night of the follow
ing week he asked her to marry him.
There were four days of grace,
"You know I won't bother you very
much," he explained awkwardly, wishing
that the eyes were not looking straight
Into hla. "I'll I'll be on the road most
of the time, and your aunt could stay
with you only In a much better house
and really, I'll do my best to make you
The brown eyes were shooting sparks
"I'm glad you didn't havo the Imperti
nence to tell me you loved me anyhow.
There Is that much to your credit," she
was saying scornfully. "But you couldn't
make me happy. I hate you "
Sho said more, but Rlgby, stumbling
iu nn apartments inrougn the snow,
could not exactly recall It. Perhaps ho
didn't want to recall it. "I hate you I"
That was quite enough. And all of a
sudden he realized that, above all things.
no uiu noi wisn tnis girl to hate him. Ho
wanted her to love him, wanted It more
than anything else in the world-even
Three days later Mr. Johnson opened
a letter from Rlgby, dated In a small
"I havo changed my mind. I don't
want the New York Job until Tve earned
Then he wrote of sales and customers.
Johnson dictated an answer to the busi
ness part of the letter and ignored the
reference to a future marriage. He gavo
Rlgby's lttter to the brown-eyed ste
nographer to file with the rest of his
day's correspondence, and she road the
all-Important paragraph more than once.
And all that long, bitter winter Rlgby
stayed on the road. He ahunned the
theatre, and closed his eyes to the racing
news. But he sold goods, and wrote
regularly to the senior member of the

It was summer before Rlgby put the
question again, and fall before the wed

she was firm.
"I want you to make one more trip,
