sne returned nasiuy to ner room,
threw over her shoulder a kimono, anil
went back to the floor, hesitating there
for a breath or two. She stepped out ;
upon the gallery, walked as far as
Warrington's door, and paused there.
The gallery floor was trelllsed with
momlight and shadow. She saw some
, thln t ; lying in the center of a patch of
, light, and she stooped. The light was
' too dim for her to read; JO she re
entered her own >oom and turned on
the light. It was Warrington's letter
of credit. She gave a low laugh, per- ,
i haps a bit hysterical. There was no
doubt of it. Someone had entered his
room. There had been a struggle in
which he had been the stronger, and
the thief had dropped his plunder. (As
a matter of fact, the Chinaman, find
ing himself closed in upon, had thrown
the letter of credit toward the railing,
in hope that it would fall over te the
ground below, where. Inter, he could
recover it.) Elsa pressed it to her
heart as another woman might have
pressed a rose, and laughed again.
Something of his: something to give
| her the excuse to see and to speak to
him again Tomorrow she would

know; and he would tell her the truth,
even as her heart knew it now. For
what other reason had he turned away
from her that first day out of Ran
goon, hurt and broken? Paul Ellison;
and she had told him that she was go- 1
in* home to marry his brother!
The Battle.
Next morning, when it became
known among the bankers and foreign
agencies that a letter of credit for ten
thousand pounds had been lost or
stolen, there was more than a ripple
of excitement. They searched records,
but no loss as heavy as this came to
light. Even the managing director of
the Bank of Burma came in for his
share of annoyance. He was obliged
to send out a dozen cables of notiflca
tion of the loss, all of which had to be
paid out of accrued dividends. Thus
Warrington had blocked up the ave
nues. The marvelous rapidity with
which such affairs may be spread
broadcast these days is the first won
der In a new epoch of wonders. From
Irkutsk to Auckland, from St. John's'
to Los Angeles, wherever a newspa
per was published, the news flew, j
Within twenty-four hours it would be
dlflicult to draw against that letter
as It would be to transmute baser
metals into gold.
At half past ten Warrington, appar
•ntly none the worse for a sleepless
night, entered the private office of the
consul general who. gravely and with
■tudled politeness, handed to him an j
unopened cablegram.
"I rather preferred to let you open
it, Mr. Warrington." he said.
Warrington noted the lack of cor
diality. but with passive regret. The
consul general recovered his pen and
pretended to become absorbed in the
litter of papers on his desk. But in
truth he could see nothing save the
young man's face; calm, unmoved, ex
pressing negligent interest in what
would be the most vital thing in his
existence, next to life. A fine speci
men of a man. incredibly wholesome
despite his ten years' knocking about
in this ungodly part of the world. It
was a pity. Thev had evidently re
fused to compromise.
"Bad news?"
Warrington stood up with sudden
and surprising animation in his face.
"Read it," he said.
"If Elliaon will make restitution in
person, >«. ANDES."
The consul general Jumped to his
feet and held out his hand. "I am glad,
very glad. Everything will tarn out
all right now. If you wish, I'll tell
Miss Chetwood the news."
"I was going to ask you to do that,"
responded Warrington. The mention
of Elsa took the brightness out of his
face. "Tell her that Parrot * Co. will
always remember her kindness, and
ask her to forgive a lonely chap for
having caused her any embarrassment
through her goodness to him. I have
decided not to see Miss Chetwood
"You are a strong man, Mr. War
"WarrinatonT Aly name Is out son
| i'*ul Warrington Ellison. After all, ;
I'm so used to Warrington, that I may
as well let well enouph alone. There
Is one more favor; do not tell Miss
Chetwood that my name Is Ellison."
"1 should t:se my own name, if I
were you. Why, man, you can return
to the States as if you had departed
but yesterday. The world forgets
quickly. People will be asking each
other what it was that you did. Then
1 shall bid Miss Chetwood good-by for
you ?"
"Yes. I am gckig to jog it home.
I want to travel flrst class, here, there,
wherever fancy takes me it's so lone
since I've known absolute ease and !
comfort. I wish to have time to re
adjust myself to the old ways. I was
once a luxury-loving chap. I sail at I
dawn for Saigon. I may knock around
in Siam for a few weeks. After that,
1 don't know where I'll go. Of course
I shall keep the Andes advised of my
whereabouts, from time to time." j
"Another man would be in a hurry." |
It was on the tip of his tougue to tell
Warrington what he knew of the An- |
des Construction company, but some
thing held back the words, a fear that
Warrington might change his mind
about seeing Elsa. "Well, wherever
you go and whatever you do. good luck
go with you."
"There are good men in this world,
sir. and I shall always remember you
as one of them."
"By the way, that man Mallow; i
fcave you met him yet?"
j The quizzical expression in his eyes
made Warrlrgton laugh. "No."
"I was in hopes . . ." The con- j
sill general parsed, but Warrington
ignored the invitation to make known 1
his intentions.
He shunted further inquiry by say
ing: "A letter of credit of mine was
stolen last night. 1 had a tussle in the
room, and was rather getting the best I
of it. The thug slipped suddenly j
away. Probably hid the letter in his |
loin cloth."
"That's unfortunate."
"I have sent out a general stop-or
der. No one will be able to draw
against it. The sum will create sua- j
picion anywhere."
"Have you any idea who was back \
of the thief? Is there aiiy way I can j
be of service to you?"
"I really suspect Mallow and a
gambler named Craig, but no court
would hold them upon the evidence I
have. It's my belief that it's a prac
tical joke which measures up to the
man who pernetrated it. He must
certainly realize that a letter so large
will be eagerly watched for."
"I shall gladly take charge of the
matter here for you. I suppose that j
»you will eventually meet Mallow?"
"Eventually suggests a long time,"
"Ah ... Is there ... Do
you think there will be any need of a
watch holder?"
"I honestly believe you would like to
see me have it out with him!"
"I honestly would. But unfortunate
ly the dignity of my office forbids. He
has gone up and down the settlements,
bragging and domineering and fight
ing. I have been given to understand
that he has never met his match." ,
"It's a long lane that has no turn- !
ing. After all," Warrington added, let- i
ting go his reserve; "you're the only
friend I have. Why shouldn't I tell y£>u
that immediately 1 am going out in
search of him, and that when I find
him I am going to give him the worst
walloping he ever heard tell of."
"I ought not to want to see you at it,
but, hang it, I do!"
"Human nature. It's a pleasurable
sensation to back up right by might.
Four years ago I vowed that some day
I'd mset him on equal terms. I may

not see you again. If the letter of
credit turns up. you know what to do
with it. I'm keen to set started. Good
by, and thank you."
A handclasp, and he was gone.
"1 wish," thought the consul gen
eral, "I could have told him about the
way the scoundrel spoke of Elsa."
And Warrington, as he sought the
cafe veranda, wished he could hav«
told the basic truth of his fighting
mood; the look Mallow had given Elsa
that day In Penang. Diligently he be- ]
