These sugar speculators are not

Adele Grrlson, Sew' PhM of
' CHAPTER. 295
I stiffened, offended, at Grace!
Draper's flippant reference to my
"faithful Ftdos," following , so
closely upon my granting of her
appeal for pardon. iBut before 1
could speak she had redeemed her
lapse into her; old mocking : ver
nacular with quick contrition.
"Oh, please , forgive m , for
epeaking that way." aha 'cried, dis
tressed. "But if you ;had -been
harried from pillar Ito ' post the
way I have, every innocent act and
word distorted, an oll motive im
puted to everything, I i don't be
lieve you would hava much 'rever
ence or liking Xor the people do
ing it." i
"I am afraid I do not under
stand," I said a trine stiffly-.
She Jooked at me steadily,
"Do you. mean that you do not
know the espionage to which
have, been subjected on your ac
count since I was .released?" she
asked. " - . ' : ; "
I flushed involuntarily at the
question, realizing that I had no
right to' betray my knowledge oi
any actions other than my ; own.
"I know nothing," I returned
steadily, with the specious mental
reservation that indeed I knew
nothibe which I cojild tell ner.
A spark of the old firj gleam
ed in her eyes at m answer, ana
I felt that, she fathomed my sudt
terf uge. " But it vanlshedK as sud
denly as it appeared, ; an d . her
manner when she spoke again was
one of entire j belief In myasser
tion. ... ; , . ;
A Surprise.
"No I don't believe you do,"
she said slowly,, then with' a rush
of words, "I ought not. to tell you
it you wished you jcould make
a great deal of trouble fori me by
repeating what ; I'm going to say,
but X don't believe you will,"
She stopped and eyed me hes-.
itatingly. I wondered if &he were
going to ask me to promise sil
ence but instead, she hurried on.
"Ever since I left the prison 1
have known that I was under con
stant surveillance," she said, "and
I found out no matter how
that four different persons were
strongly interested in all my do
ings. When I tell you that ; the
names of those four persons are
Allen Drake. Hugh Grantlana,
Harry and Lillian Underwood, ytu
will not wonder, I think, that 1
realize their interest' In. my doings
was simply Interest in you." ;
! One item alone of . her j little
speech surprised ine, and that was
her Introduction df Harry Under
wood's name. I had thought him
the length of & continent away,
yet she had spoken with such de
cision I could not doubt her know
ledge. He must be in the vicinny
, L
ot New York. -
No time now, however, to spec
ulate upon this surprising bit ot
information. Grace Draper's voice
went on hurriedly,, unevenly. -.
'Every step was dogged, every
movement known." , she said.
admit I was foolish. I . was, so
angry when I found - it out that I
deliberately tried to make them
believe from several little things
that I actually meant you harm.
And then when I came to myself
I realized, that , there could be no
peace or rest for me until I start
ed clean" again, with your forgive
ness as one of the things which
Would help wipe off the slate, I
found myself baffled at every aUl
tempt to see you." '
: ' '' "'-': ... -IA , ,
Madge's Promise.
. ' i . ' '
She stopped, and the inevitable
question sprang to my Hps. .
j "How is : It then- that you ac
complished ' this meeting so eas
ily?" ; .;: ; '
I I wondered if it' were triumph
that fliskered in her eyes for a
moment. - ;..'.-
"That will have to remain' my
secret." she said. "Otherwise I
should; have to betray a trust
placOd in me. But part of my
success lies in the fact that I
have been as actionless as a sea
shell ever since. I returned from
the South. The cnost active cat3
doze at the mice holes sometimes.-
y ' s
There was a hint of satisfaction
In her manner. I Wondered idly
If.. it were justified, or .whether
the four persons she had named
were indeed as blind as she evi
dently believed them to be. That
they could have no knowledge of
my present interview I believed,
else it would have been stopped
before this. But that they would
not long remain in ignorancoof
her success In seeing me I was
certain, knowing their resource
fulness and determination Nas I
did. And when they; did learn ot
the trick she had used to secure
on interview4with me, what pen
alty would they "visit upon her? .
j -Can't yotj. Imagine how intol
erable such espionage Is?" she
said fiercely. "And I have meant
no harm, mean none now. All I
wish is to be allowed to llv
quietly and earn my living, asbest
I canj They will never believe
me. but. I think they Will (believe
you If yon can tell them that you
have seen me don't tell them tbe
trick I played; say It was an ac
cidental meetingand that you
are convinced I mean no . harm.
Won't you do that, for me?"
I shut my ears relentlessly to
the little note of warning still
sounding, though f aint'y, in my
brain. I told myself that I could
pot afford to shut the door o
hope against a creature so downed
by fate as this. I stretched my
hand out to her, and said slow
ly and earnestly: ..
"1 will do all I possibly can for
you." .
