Arden Besley was forced to listen
to the flhnllow nothings uttered by the
chattering group. Then as the auto

ton utter a pettish, wearied exclama
tion. It was tho first time he had
driven the machine, having hqcn em
ployed by John Moore, the uncle of
Miss Dutton, tho day previous. The
latter did not oven know his name,
but she spoke pleasantly:
"Will you kindly drive out of town

return till Into afternoon. Do you
know any restful, picturesque spot
whero I can get away from thls-'-thls
Arlen Besley bowed, marveling nt
tho wondrous beauty of her face.
"Tho old river roud winds In and out
for forty miles," bo said. "There Is 1
beautiful prospect from tho bluffs near
Vinton. Is that too far?"
"Not at all."
She sat back In the scat with closed
eyes lifter that, und no further words
were Bpokcn between them. When Ar-

of a rlso In the Inndscnpc. From tho
apex of tho bluff Miss Dutton gazed
upon a varied scene spread beforo her

"If you please," sho responded, and
her oyes took In his face with atten

"was to go for Miss Dutton Into, in tho
afternoon. At four o'clock Arden
drovo bnck to the spot whero ho had
left Miss Dutton. Sho was flushed,
almost embarrassed, he funded. Her
wraps wero nowhere In sight; slid
handed him a Healed envelope.
' "You will deliver that to Mr. Moore,
l please," sho said. "When ho questions
t, you tell him I left you no Indication
of where I was going. That Is all,
and thank you."
Sho flitted away without nndther
word, leaving Arden fnlrly stupefied,
IIu felt sure thtit tlic.su abrupt orders
covered some strnngo action on the
part of Miss Dutton. Mr. Moore ciuea
tloncd him closely when, with a star
tied face, he read the letter. IIo asked
In detail of tho mynterl&us trip. Then

"You need say nothing of this lncl

and these wero its details: Two
