"'No, very discreet, a high-class

on the route may not be the same

Special you want me to put in?''
"Not a thing," I returned feel
ing that I did not care in tho least
What I wore or what I tookj with
me on this Journey, the most dis
tasteful I ever had ; faced. v
"All right, I feex," she c a rr oi
led inr laughable Imitation, of Ka
tie's stereotyped yph rase. ': i S
Then she began packing my bag
Hh deft, accustomed hands,
while I hurried through my dress
ing, feeling as I put on the new
tailleur Lillian had ' insisted I
should wear, that a sombre Vcrepe
costume would more easily match
my feelings. -; . , .'" '
i "That's - the ticket!" ; Lillia
snapped -the lock --"i of the bag,
straightened herself,; and swung
me around for inspection. j'You

be so bewildered they'll forget to
lap their cream." i . .
"There That's Settled!"
j I knew .that she; was cleverly
suggesting the course. I ought to
pursue, and my heart sank at the
prospect of being -' compelled to
play ; so anild a ; role When . every
pulse in me clamored for the
primitive feminine relief, of halr
pulling and face-scratching. K But
there was' no use starting at all
unless -I meant. to, play the game
through and I mentally girded my
self for; whatever; the next day or
two should bring me."
We started for the door. when,
with a suddeni dismaying thought,
I whirled on. Lillian. 5
j "Mother Graham!" I exclaimed
lit dismay. 'Whatever are we go
ing to tell her?"
"Nothing. Just noW. I'll attend
to'- that - when we come back, or
rather when I .come back.' J!m
not sure yet whether you'd better
dodge the reporters and take a
taxi to - Biverhead, getting ' the
train from there and leaving me to
explain, or whether .you'd better
come back , and see them here.
We'll mull it over as See go. f How
about driving in that suit? Won't
you' hurt It?"
"I'll , slip that' big linen motor
coat over it to beon the safe side,"
I returned. "Are you ready to
go?":.- " - . .
i "All set but my hat and coat,
Lillian returned- "You go ahead
and get the car around to the side
door, and I'll cover . your retreat
Against possible flank movements
of your., mother-In-Iaw." : . w
We .escaped, j however... without
any - sign of Mother I Graham," and
drove straight, to the telegraph of
fice, where the dignified and cour
teous operator-assured -me that
there was no possibility . . of . the
message being read jby other eyes
than ours and his own. Then he
wired' a request ftoija .LIlliaa;to a
high official pf the, jtelegraph sys
tem, which, when granted, would
effectually safeguard from prying
eyes the record of Dicky's message
all along the route, j" : I f i
"There, that's iettled!" Lillian
said with a little sigh of relief,
then I heard a quick catch of . her
breath. "Jlurry jMadge." she
whispered. "Let's go into the car
before he reaches ;u$." ' .

pelling grasp of her arm, and saw
