"Pormlt mo to Buggest," Sevranco put In,

"We nro willing to admit, to begin with,

Tho Prussian did not reply, but kept n

"The point Is that you lied. Under the clr

Tho Issue was plain, and not to bo evaded.
Remembering Julia's warning, I was deaf

"Why did he abandon you, then?"
"At my desire."
"And her ladyship your fiancee?"
"Ah, you weary mo I" Ho smiled in
scrutably Into'the cloud of pipe smoke. "In

"And we," I pursued', "were locked up in
order that you might bo rid of us?"
"You havo fathomed tho mystery," he ad
mitted, with Irony.
"I wish," raid Sevrance softly, "that I
could make you tell the truth, Holzborn I"
"You will find It difficult." he returned
candidly. "I don't repose confidence In my
enemies. Now, If you will be kind enough
to leave, nt your convenience, I will try to
get Borne rest. I am weary."
He put the pipe aside and turned his faco
to the wall. "At your convenience," ho
repeated. "And, by the way, It that fool,

"Get on with your proposition," I
"Then don't Interrupt," ho retorted
sharply. "To proceed: A certain work

"Not to put too fine a point upon It you

faces with his unreadable gaze. "You

"Not bo fast," Sevrance demurred. "Let
us consider all sides of tho case, Traill."
"By all means," consented tho Prussian.
"In the tlrst place, what is the nature
of tills 'business' of which you speak?"
He smiled. "That I cannot reveal until

Give mo your word that you will do all
things In your power, and under my
direction, to carry It to a successful Issue
nnd tonight, at 8 o'clock, I will take you

"Why the delay?" I asked curiously.
"That I may signal the Myosotls, now

proceeds upon Its course, avoiding danger.
If otherwise If you retime, I nm forced
to threaten you Lady Herbert will return

desperate than thoso you know of."
"And you permit lliat you, who would

"I hnvo no choice. I must use whntovcr
tools come to my hand, without regard to
"Tell me one thing, then," I pleaded.
"What Is the naturo of your power over
her? What makes her bend to your will
now7 God knows the woman hntos you "
"And I know It. too," ho returned, without
n flicker of an eyelash. "But I would be
n great fool to show you my trump card,
Tho truth of that observation was so
plain that I could not argue against It I
bowed my head, struggling to suppress tho
namo 01 my smoldering rosentment

tinued ln honeyed tones, "I will confess ono

I would not bo cruet."
Something beneath tho sound of his
words puzzlod mo. I did not ciulto under.
stand, nnd watched him keenly whllo ho
fumbled beneath his pillow. Presently, In
his own good time, ho brought forth an
"Here Is a note addressed to Mr. Gordon
Traill." ho drawled lrritatlngly. "It Is
Bealed and yet I might BUggest tho Identity
of Its fair author, It I would."
Ho gavo It a twist of Ills lingers, sneering
contemptuously, nnd tho note skimmed
ncross tho floor, falling at my feet I had
It In my fingers In an Instant, trembling
with nn uncontrollablo agitation ; for at tho
first elanco I had recognized tho handwrit
ing of Heart's Desire.
Impatiently I broko tho wax and drew
forth the slnglo sheet of faintly fragrant
paper It contained.
Undated, It read, four squara pages hur
"Gordon, If you would nld mo and I bc
llovo you dcslro to do so; I could not write
this did I not hold llrm to that belief
please, ah, please do not misconstrue, my

will mako you a certain proposition. I
cannot advlso you to trust tho man, for

ho will keep faith.
"If, then, you can see your way to an ac
ceptance, bearing ln mind the roward ho
offers, tho penally ho exacts, I would say
to you, 'Accept!' wero I but sure that It
was fair and right to you.
"I am I cannot find words to say with
what burden of sorrow nnd anxloty.
I pondered long over this, senslblo to tho
unmlstnkahlo genuineness of Its appeal, as
honest and straightforward as her own dear
So far as I was concerned, tho matter
stood already settled. I must consent to
undertake whatever task Von Holzborn
might sot to my hnnd. The man had laid
Blego to mo cunningly enough, withholding
his heaviest ammunition until the final
assault Despite her expressed doubts Julia
had left mo no course, to pursuo save to ac
cept and dare whatever dangers such ac
ceptance might entail.
At length I looked up, to And Sevrance
waiting with a show of Impatience si
lently I handed him tho note. He read It
through without a sign and then, returning
It, asked openly:
"It Is her own hand? You are sura?"
"Certain," I affirmed.
"Inspired, do you think?" ho pursued,
with a sideways nod toward tho Prussian.
"I think not," I eald.
It appeared that ho had come to the
same conclusion as myself; ho faced Von
"I, for one, accept," he announced stilly.
The Prussian looked to me.
"Ah-hl" ha sighed tremulously, sinking
back upon his pillow.
With the triumphant consummation of
his desires, ho virtually keeled over, played
out, lying as limp as a rag, as motionless
ub a mono.

MY FIRST SHAVE
Dearest Boys and Girls Thia talk will Interest boys, because sooner or later
you will have to shave or be shorn. It will interest girls, because they will
never have to shave or bo shorn. We are always interested more or less in
something we cannot do ourselves.
Well, I discovered one day that a slight DOWN was coming UP on ray upper
lip. It was then I began to take an interest in the price of razors and. in
My flrst outfit consisted of a dollar razor, a tin cup, soap and shaving
brush. I had a looking-glass.
This was before the days of safety (flrstt) razors, which never cut you
except when you are going out somewhere and want to look exceptionally
I learned early that "well-lathered is half -shaved l" So I gave my face
the one gpod washing of its dear, sweet life. Then I started my 'dollar razor
on its eventf.nl Journey over my face.
I resolved to shave down instead of up. All went well until I encountered
an obstruction on my chin.
It was a mole.
Never before had that tiny mole seemed so large ! It took 15 minutes to
properly shave that mole and then I left a little red spot Just to remind me
that the bump was there, but
I got acquainted with the hills and valleys of my face. I never knew there
were so many bumps on it I never knew before that hair grows thia way and
I have that same face yet.
It haa paid to take care of it J FARMER SMITH, Children'? Editor,

I broke tha Baby's Jar and and nothing
came out of the jar," said Mrs. Baboon,
looking straight at Mrs. Monkey,
"I think we ought 'to give both of those
boys a spanking' said Mrs. Monkey.
"I think Ginger Pop Is the fellow who
ought to get a spanking. I don't believe
ln spanking children for what they don't
do." replied Mrs. Baboon.
Mrs. Monkey went to the telephone and
took down tho receiver. "Hello I Is this
