k "That," he began slowly at last,
, "seems to me a most ah ! deeficult
'affair, Mistair Lester to search for
three people through all France. There
seems little hope of success. Yet I
should think it most likely that they
have gone to Paris."
I nodded. "That was my own the
ory." I agreed, "but to find them in
Paris seems also impossible."
"Not if one uses the police," he said.
"But, my dear sir," I protested, "I
can't use the police. Miss Holladay at
least has committed no crime. She
has simply chosen to go away without
"You will permit me to say then.
Mistair Lester," he observed, with just
a touch or irony, "that I fail to com
prehend your anxiety concerning her."
I felt that I had made a misstep;
that I had need to go carefully.
"It is not quite so simple as that," I
explained. "The last time we saw Miss
Holladay she told us that she was ill
and intended to go to her country
home for a rest. Instead of going
there she Bailed for France without
informing any one indeed, doing
everything she could to escape detec
tion. That conduct seems so eccen
tric that we feel in duty bound to in-
i veolls.ito it: '-.oiir-es, two days before
she left she received from us a hun
dred thousand dollars In cash."
I saw him move uneasily on his bed.
After all this advantage of mine was
no small one.
"Ah," he said softly, and again,
ah! Yes, that seems peculiar, yet per
haps if you had waited for a letter"
"Suppose we had waited and there
had been no letter suppose, in conse
quence of waiting, we should be too

tair Lester? What is it you fear for
I don't know," I answered, "but
something something. At least, we
could not; assume the responsibility of
No," he agreed, "perhaps not. You
are doubtless quite right to investi
gate. I wish you success. I wish that
I myself might aid you, there is so
much of interest in the case to me, but
I fear that to be impossible."
And he breathed a sigh, which was
doubtless genuine enough.
"Will you go to Faris?" I asked.
"Oh, no; not at once. At Havre I
shall meet my agent and transact my
affairs with him. Thej, I shall seek
some place of quiet al4fg the coast."
Yes," I said to myself, with leaping
heart, "Etretat!" But I dared not
speak the word.
I shall write to 700,' B0 added.
"when I have settled. Where do you
stay at Paris?"
"We haven't decided yet," I Bald.
"We?" he repeated.
"Didn't I tell you?, Jlr.'Boyce, our
Junior partner, Is with me." ,
"It Is no matter-where yon stay,"
he said. "I shall write to you at the
poste restante. " I should like both yon

Invitation would never be made.
I was ready to go. I had accom

If I had not already disarmed his sus
picions, I could never do so. -
"I am tiring you," I said, starting up.
"No," he protested, "no." But his
voice was almost inaudible.
"I will go," I said. "You must par
don me. I hope you wiM soon be bet
ter," and I closed the door behind me
With his murmured thanks in my ears.
It was not till after dinner that I
found opportunity to relate to Miss
Kemball the details of my talk with
"Why did you change your mind?
"The adventure teniptcd me. Those
are your own words. I thought per
haps I might be able to throw Mar
tigny off the track."
"And do ycu think you succeeded?"
"I don't know," I answered doubt
fully. "He may have seen clear

I said, "then I can help him off the

"You are risking everything!" she
cried. "We can say goodby here as
well as on the platform."
"I don't think so," I said.
"I have already said goodby to all
my other friends."
"But I refuse to be treated just like
all the others," and I started with her
down the gang plank.
She looked at me from the corner of

They were to take the company's
special train to Paris, which was wait
ing on the wharf 200 feet away, and we
slowly pushed our way toward it. In
the clamor and hurry and confusion
wholly Latin there was no chance for
Intelligent converse. Suddenly we found
our way blocked by a uniformed offi
cial, who demanded to see our tickets.
"You can't come any farther, I'm
afraid," said Mrs. Kemball, turning to
us. "We'll have to say goodby." And
she held out her hand. "But we'll soon
see you both again in Paris. You have

"That was nice of you, Miss Kemball."
"Oh, I shall be anxious to hear how
you succeeded," she retorted. "You
will bring Miss Holladay to us?"
"If we find her, yes."
"Then, again, goodby," .
She waved her hand, smiling, and
was lost in the crowd.
"Come on, Lester," said Mr. Royce's
voice. "There's no use standing star
Suddenly I remembered Martigny.
"I'll be back in a minute," I called,
and ran up the gang plank. "Has M.
Martigny left the ship yet?" I Inquired
of the first steward I met.
"Martigny?" he repeated.
"The sick gentleman in 375," I
"Oh, yes," he said. "I do not know."
"Weil, no matter. I'll find out my
scl." I mounted to the upper deck and
knocked at the door of 375. There was
n3 response. After a mordent I tried
the door, but it was locked. The win
dow, however, was partly open, and,
shading my eyes with my hands, I
peered inside. The stateroom was
A kind of panic seized me as I turned
avray. Had ho iiideeJ seen thiuUgli
my artifice? In attempting to blind
him had I merely uncovered my own
plan, or and my cheeks burned at the
thought was he so well Intrenched
that be had no fear of me? Were his
plans so well laid that it mattered not
to him whither I went or what I did?
I passed a moment of heartrending
uncertainty. I saw quite clearly what
a little, little chance of success we had:
But I' shook the feeling off, sought the
lower deck and Inquired again for
Martigny. At last the ship's doctor
told me that he bad seen the sick man
safely to a carriage and had heard him
order the driver to proceed to the Hotel
"And frankly, Mr. Lester," added the
doctor, "I am glad to be so well rid of
him. It is most fortunate that he did
not die on the voyage."
I turned away with a lighter heart.
From a dying man there could not be
much to fear. So I hunted up Mr.
Royce and found him, finally, endeav
oring to extract some information from
