A dele Garrison's New Phase of
REVELATIONS QF A WIFE
WHAT MADGE DEMANDED OF
LILLIAN AND ALLEN DRAKE
Neither Lillian nor I gave any
meed of justice to the delicious
dinner which Betty serred fol
lowing the "chicking- soup," over
which she had been so tempera
mental. I watched my friend furtlrely.
decided that she was palpably
distrait, and that the cause of her
worry was not herself but me.
The knowledge naturally didn't
Increase my peace of mind, and
I had an anxious time of it tryinp
to conceal my own agitation and
lack of appetite from the keen
eyes of Allen Drake.
He, bowerer, in true masculine
fashion, was too busy at first. dis
cussing the viands served him to
pay much attention to anythting
else. I knew that he had dined at
every restaurant of note in the
world, that he was a critical judge
of things culinary, and his ab
sorption in his dinner was a high
tribute to Betty's cooking: a tri
bute, however, which Lillian's
guests always pay her.
At the salad course Mr. Drake
turned to me accusingly.
"You . aren't eating your din
ner," he said, and I felt his gaze
steadily upon me. 'Why?"
; "I think you are a bit mistak
en," I returned a bit wearHy 1
was tired of the game I had been
playing so desultorily, and wish
ed that Mr. Drake would take
himself and his fascinations and
Ws vanity anywhere on the gobe
except in my vicinity "but 1
lunched late and heartily, unfor
tunately, when one considers
Betty'a dinners. But you ee I
didn't know I was to come in here
until after luncheon."
Allen Drake's Question.
"Yes, I knaw," he returned,
and a little thrill of fear ran
along my nerves. Each chance
word seemed tp confirm the sus
picion that my meeting of Allen
Drake at Lillian's home had been
the result, of prearrangement be
tween my friend and the diplo
matic 'agent. It so, It spelled
danger somewhere for me, or a
need for my services. A little
psychic premonition discounted
the latter. hypothesis 'and
strengthened the fprroer.
"Nevertheless," Mr. Drake con
tinued, "you really should try to
eat something. late luncheon
shouldn't mean anything to i
healthy woman like you. Sure
you're not worrying about some
thing?" Lillian's attention was for the
moment distracted with a direc
tion to Betty, who stood at her
elbow. Mr. Drake's question was
a murmured one, and for a mo
ment I thought It was simnlv a
continuation of the little flirta
tious game which I suspected he
had been trying to play. But as
I looked up at him I saw that all
lightness had gone from his man
ner. He was gazing at me with
real solicitude, and I read in. his
eyes the same flash of vitr that
naa so alarmed me in Lillian's.
Too Poor Child 1"
I haven't the same control over
my face and eyes as is possessed
py Lillian and Allen Brake, and
I do not know what of terror or
other emotion may have been
written on my face. But Mr.
Drake put ont his hand with
quick, involuntary motion, cov
ered lor an instant my own,
which I now saw was visibly
shaking, and released It as
"You poor child!" he said soft
ly. "I thought so. Now listen to

I went nnstaira with mnoh

brown-toned library has been the
scene of many of the dramatic
moments or my life, some of them
terrible experiences, which have
left indelible prints upon my
memory. It seemed tn mv r.

to this room was a distinct nre-
