tiful creature hehad brought to the
cafe, who had evidently come with
him from South America. I knew
what bitter humiliation was Lil
lian's portion, guessed also that
something more than humiliation
was stirring her heart.
For if Lillian' suspicions were
true and Grace Draper were a se
cret agent oLour country's enemies.
it was tnost probable that Harry Un
derwood also had become the most
despicable of all things, a traitor to
the land of his birth. And Lillian.
I was sure, was high la a service
safeguarding our country. It might
become her duty to track down the
man whose name she bore. No won
der even her brave heart faltered
at the possibility.
It wasn't in'Llllian to falter more
than an instant, however. In. an
other moment she was herself, and

that he's somebody some friend told
her to look up and nothing will do
her but to meet hint."
"I shall? be most pleased." the oth

had reached the table and Grace
Draper was smiling an acknowledge

I. watching Allen Drake, saw him
start Imperceptibly, and then into
those keen gray eyes there flashed
a look which held mirth In it I was
very sure. It was only a flash I
feaught. for vthe "next instant the
womanish eyelashes veiled bis eyes
again and he went on with the con

that he knew as well as Grace Dra

She managed the thing very well.
however, I was forced to admit, and
so did the man Harry Underwood

beautiful woman at his side. Then,
carelessly raising his eyes, he caught

of recognition was admirably done.
It was but a few moments after
