Ford: "The dummy enme to see

In his life; but they tell me singer ale

tern any beverage. Moment he began
to pass awuy and lose consciousness,
the dummy put on Shute's hat and
overcoat, went downstairs, and was
sent away by the doorman In the taxi
ordered 'for Sir. Shute.' Just before
Shute became helpless when he was
able to slugger, but too dazed to know
anything (he porter was called.
Noble told him that his friend Shute

helped down aqd put Into his automo
bile, as Noblo was leaving town.
Thinking It was the case of n 'drunk,'
tho porter probnbly well feed will
ingly helped Noble to carry his vic
tim down und put him In the ma
chine. "There was a doctor In the touring
car wo got hlin, too; he's a sure
enough crook," continued Ford. "Tho
doctor watched Shute every second of
the ride to New York, keeping his
hypodermic bandy. Hut the lad didn't
rouso before they got him to the
CoIonln'M pier. Then they woke him
up n little by slapping his face, so
they could carry him aboard as If he
was drunk lots of young bloods are
carried aboard steamers that way, I
understand. They spilled liquor on
his clothes and face, then called the
ship's doctor you know the nblllty of
the average xhlp's doctor! Told him
hat Shuto who wns hooked as 8. W.
Jones had been celebrating before
sailing I The doctor looked him over
nnd said: 'lie's all seas over, all
"Hut weren't Ihey afraid he might
come to before the ship sailed?"
"They took care of that. After the

crook gave him a hypodermic enough
morphine to keep hlin asleep till noon
the next day, when the ship would be
away out to sea. A liberal tip to thi)

"All for the purpose of making a
killing?" ul;cd the ambassador.
"The biggest killing Hie gamblers
have made In yeara," said Ford.
"Jke Sllncer and bin crowd are sup
posed to have cleaned up several hun
dred thousand dollars."
"Rut you've got hlra pow Just
Stinger I"
"That's tho trouble we haven't,"
admitted Ford. "Not one of the
crooks caught so far will admit
Stinger had anything to do with it.
They're being paid big monj.'y, no
doubt, to protect Mm."
"Then how do you know that he's
mixed up In it?"
"We know that the fellow calling
himself Waller Noble has done dirty
work for Stinger before. Flo would
probnbly go to the penitentiary for
Stinger for money,"
"Then you're up against It?"
"Yes unless we're right In the way

turned Ford, "the crooks had to do
more than put Shute nbnnrd that ship
and keep him unconscious until sho
wns out at sea. When he came to nnd
realized where he was he'd naturally
send a wireless to me. If It went
through, why I'd try to rescue lilui.
Say I'd hnve gotten from tho navy

So what would they naturally do?"

was astonished.

"SomowhaL Rut we'll try to man
age It," the ambassador assured Trls
"If you don't mind I'll give you our
position In regard to Jerrold Mnnsel."
"Certainly go ahead," said tho am
bassador. "We havo no desire to prosecute
Mnnsel provided we can get from
him proof whtcb will convict the mnn
higher up.' We aren't bothering with
tho tools.
"Apybow, that man Mnnsel saved
many lives protected women and
children when the Regent was sink
ing. Thnt deed shouldn't bo forgot
ten and we ain't going to forget It
We look upon Mnnsel as tho victim of
other men's greed. First a greedy
theatrical manager tempted him to
commercialize his heroism then cast
him adrift when he was no longer n
box-offlco attraction. ManscI was
broke, got to drinking, and had no Job.
Ue was Just ripe for Jake Stinger to
The ambassador nodded vigorously.
"So If Mnnsel will confess and name
tho mnn higher up "
"We're satisfied." finished Ford.
"Wo're after Jake Stinger. And It
ain't Just for revenge. The only
menoco to (he Integrity of baseball Is
gambling and I want to bit the gam
blers a crack that they won't forget
Say putting Jako Stinger In stripes
means as much to me as putting a
trust magnate In Jail means to the
president) Understand, he's got his
heart set on It."
Tho ambassador smiled but gave
no sign. After u diplomatic pause he
continued the conversation: "We
ought to be nblo to bring Jerrold Men
set to time, somehow. He could be
detained on the landing of the Colonla
tomorrow nnd paroled In the custody
of the Rri'.lsh ambassador. Then It
could all be fixed up diplomatically
quietly. I'll see Sir George Claughton
nf once."
Trls Ford looked puzzled.
"Tho British nrnbnssndor to Italy,"
explained John Rlsmer. "Great crick

"Tell him if he'll help us out with

"You'ro n born diplomat" was the
ambassador's compliment
"That's strange for I happen to be
an Irishman."
Trls Ford thought It a good Joke.
"I don't know oxnetly," ntiswerod
"Must start nt once," announced
"W-h-n-l for?" Trls Ford could not
suppress his curiosity entirely.
"To see the American ninhnsindor."
Tho mnnngor's face 'brightened.
"He's here on tho dock watting
Win scowled.
"for an American ho has to
meet," completed Ford.
"After ho sees his friend whoever

up nt tho Kxcelstor that's tho lop

"Mebbo It Is," acknowledged Fonl.
"I'm stopping there."

Fonl. "You didn't wise up to It, but

"Ilonet? Are you next to the am

"Sure I am. The president of tho

with tho why and tho wherefore of his

"Sho'll never care for mo n second

exuded gloom with every syllable.
"If she won't havo you," said Trts
Ford, "you wouldn't have her." This
was not an Irishism.

If Win Shute marveled at sight of
Trls Ford waiting on tho quay nt Na
ples, the manager of the Giant-killers
returned the compliment and opened
his mouth In astonishment. For James
Wlnton Shuto. quite evidently In the
best of health, did not disembark

perfect trust, wns a timid, sweet-faced
woman of middle nge, whose wistful
