waa worked to a freniy. I got sev

felt tbst I would keep on winning.
And so I did tll I broke the bank.
I scooped my winnings Into a light
overcoat I bad brought with me aad.
ttelng my handkerchief about tbe
gathered corners, set off for my hotel.
It'ls a wonder how I got there with

tbe concierge to telephone to tbe other

Alan Meredith was staying.
"Meredltbr' be said. "Isn't tbst tbe

My heart stood still.
"Did an American of that name Uke

true enough, tbat my cbum. Alan Mere

But tbe horror of tbe occurrence waa
