An . atmosphere of l arUrenesa
had crept about tbe. use of Alan's
name and that bad trked fcer.
It might he no more than a mere
social prejudice, hut. there was.
she discovered, something d f
UnetlT shabby in descriBins; one
self sjl another Mans1 wife.
She took a deeo breath of the
clean, saoraina; air and shook her
self, as if she were shaking off
all the little thabbinesses that
had inevitably clung to her In
New York. She was in bounding
health, equipped with blear know-
edge of the work ahead' of her,
anxious to begin it
"It will take them a bit of time
to get through the ; harbor," said
Alan, rejoining her. "Everything
ready for the customs?"
"No. I hurried up on " deck
when you tapped on my. door,"
she answered, i n ever so giaa

As she returned to Jttt . "cabin
she glanced at herwrist-wateh.
He had said he ironld come In
half an hour and she must take
care not to keep him waiting.
Punctually to- the minute ke
knocked on the door.
"All ready!" she told him.
"As there isn't much room for

she said. "There Isn't an inch of
room anywhere. I could only just
"Nonsense, you can't afford to
leave things about like that! If
you haven't got room for it, roll
it up and give It to me.4'
She obeyed and. he stuffed It
into the pocket of the overcoat
on his arm.
"Shall X wait for you on
deck?" Bhe asked as she Btepped
out of the cabin.
"Yes. I shant need you here.
By the way; 111 do air the tlp-
Piag." ' '
No man had ever spoken to
Shirley as Alan spoke to ker, but
she was quite conscious of that
fundamental fact. In small mat
ters he would consult her taste
and defer to her. For everything
else he issued orders, which she
would obey without discussion,
finding an odd and . wholly un
conscious pleasure in obeying.
- She went on deck, which was
littered now with a nondescript
medley of other passengers.
There were merchants and var
ious kinds of .tradesmen of ming
led nationalities, but the Turkish
type of face predominated.
So tar she had not picked out
a single western European.
Soon they were docked in the
harbor and her view of the city
was shut out by the customs
As the gangway was lowered
confusion broke out among pas
sengers and erew alike. Alan led
her to a deserted part of the
"There's nothing to be alarnr
ed about." he explained. "They're
like this all talking at once and
shoving each other about. As
soon as the customs men come'on
board" IU fix It. Her they are.
Dont move from here until I
She saw him shoulder his way
through the babbling crowd and
address an officer la Greek mili
tary . uniform. For a few seconds
they talked together; thee Alan
came toward her with the Greek
offieer.vWho saluted and address
ed her in French.
"I will make it my business to
see that madame is In no way in
convenienced. Permit your bag
gage to be sent to my private of
fice and you may reclaim it at
Shirley murmured, her thanks.
They moved towards . the gang
way, where an ' avenue through
the gesticulating, protesting pas
sengers was made for them by
the customs men.
"The rest of those poor devils
win be on board for another six
hours or so," Alan explained as
they set foot on the quay. "Let's
see now . . . Through here's the
quickest way out."
Shirley was wholly Incurious as
to how Alan had managed It.
Once in her ' inmost thoughts
she had contrasted his swift com
petence with Roger's blustering
timidity. On their honeymoon
Roger had always left her to deal
with customs and other officials.
"They'll do more for a woman,"
he had explained.
They passed through the cus
toms buildings into a narrow en
Closed space-that was the dock-
f ard. . Drawn up in a straggly
ine were six of the quaintest
carriages Shirley had ever seen.
They were, in fact, very old open
carriages of the Victoria type,
and each was drawn by two ema
"These things were probably in
general use In Paris and Rome 30
years ago," explained Alan. "I
don't suppose there are any taxis
here. Well have to use one. As
far as I can remember, the best
place her is the Lutetla."
They approached the nearest
vehicle and a man in a very old
silk hat stepped forward, bowing
"The Lutetia," said Alan in
French. "And I will give you fife
Shirley got in while Alan en
gaged himself in a prolonged
haggle. Once he beckoned to her
to get out, but as she was about
to obey the bargain was conclud
ed for another two and a half
"What have we saved r fey an
that talk?" she asked.
Oh, in our money about a
nickel," he answered. "It J had
not haggled the word would have
gone, round to the varMus cut
throat societies that a couple of
rich foreigners had arrived."
The man in the silk hat mount
ed the driver's seat, called loudly
and presently a second, man got
up beside him and began to drive.
"How delightful! We're going
to have a coachman as well,"

' Ten miles ahead of them in the
shadow, it seemed, of the old 1
Turkish fortress that frowned
from a long, tquat hilltop, lay '
the city that is older than the
written work the city that .has
known more of war.plague, pes
tilence and famine than any oth
er city id the world.
"That's Salonika ahead!" said
Alan absently. "I suppose it has
a sort of prettiness a beauty
evenT-seen from here. It's that
Utter of minarets and white tow
ers they aren't really towers
and those grim-looking hills. But
really it's the ugliest place id the
world, 8hlrley. The whole country
'l 3 a queer genius for making it
self hated. You'll find that."
"I shall love it!" said Shirley.
"Perhaps it has been waiting all
these centuries for just that."
: Absorbed in the view, Bhe had
slipped her arm through his.
"H'm! An amusing fancy! But
I doubt if it will work 'out in
practice ... Too won't find any
difficulty in walking about the
deck, now," he added. "The sea is
as steady as a millpond." As he
poke he disengaged himself from
her arm, walked on a little and
began to fill a pipe.
Shirley continued to gase to
wards the city, scarcely noticing
that he had left her side. Ahead
was tbe land of adventure, an4
behind, by countless miles and
vast stretches of time, were the
conventionalities of New York,
the remote nightmare of Roger
and, lawyers with settlements and
incredible, irritating tactfulness.
The week or so of tbe Bohem
ian life, with Alan she remember
ed now as a mase of work and
confused activity. There has been
endless trouble with the consul
ates and it bad been practically
impossible for her to obtain the
necessary papers under her own
As Mrs. Brennaway, however,
everything in the end had been
simple. It was odd, she thought,
that from the moment when she
had first taken his name to get
over a trifling awkwardness with
the porter at the flat the name
had clung to her.
"It won't matter here. No one
knows us," she told herself. "Of
