tried to say calmly to Harry:
"An Invitation for tomorrow."
"I knew It would come that way."
"Also wants you to come."

tall strangers and called her compan

(ironfall Lurry and Miss (iuggensloek

The lady started violently. Her eyes
grew wide, her lips parted, and her
body xvas bent forward eagerly, a Ut
ile gloved hand grasping the side of
the open carriage. Her "Ideal Ameri
can" was buw lng low, as was the tall
f( Ilow nt his side. When he lisikod up

(nine face wns Mushed, nnd he snw her
smile, blush furiously and Incline her
I I gravely. The carriage had sxvept
i.ist, but she turned tier head, nnd he
detected nu appealing glance in her
eyes, a perplexed wrinkle across her
brow, both of which xvere swept awuy
nn Instant later by the most bewitch
ing of smiles. Again her head was In
clined, this time a trifle mure energet
ically, and then the maddening face
wns turned from him. The equipage
lolled onward, and there was no effort
(li her part to cheek lis progress. The
men were left standing alone and dis
appointed oil the streets of Lilelweiss,
the object hf their search slipping
nway as soon as she had been found.
II er companion xvas aiiuizcd by the lit

the eager lisik on her face as she
turned with a question in her eyes.
"Turned down!" exclaimed the Irre
pressible Anguish dolefully. "That's
pretty shabby treatment, old man. Hut
she's quite worth the Journey."
"I'll nut go back to America without
