"Forget V Of course not."
Still doubtful, Itlesslngton left thu

white cloth, the paper lying unheeded
Time passed. A servant came Into
the room to remove the breakfast.
Chllcoto moved slightly when neces
sary, but otherwise retained ills atti

task, replenished the tire and left the
room. Chllcoto still sat on.
At last, feeling numbed, he rose and
crossed to the fireplace. The clock on
Uio mantelpiece stared him In tho face.
He looked at it, started slightly, then
drew out his watch. Watch and clock
corresponded. Knell marked III o'clock.
Willi a nervous motion he loaned for

"All right. Tell him I have gone out

"I understand, sir."
Hut before tho words bad been prop
erly spoken Chllcoto had passed tho
man and walked Into tho ball.
RAVING his house, Chllcoto
walked forward quickly and
aimlessly. With tho sting of
the outer nir tho recollection of
Inst night's adventure came back upou
him. Since tho hour of his waking It
had hung about with vague per
sistence, but now in the clear light of
day It seemed to stand out with a full

nursmmi ,vorri0g nnd accravated them.
There seemed to be almost a danger In

rowly he had escaped compromise!
He turned hot nnd cold at tho recollec
tion of what he had said and what ho
might hnve said. Then for tho first
tlmo he paused In his walk and looked
( Qn ,onv,nB Grogv0nor square ho had
. tirnc(, westwnril( movhig rapidly till
the Marble arch was reached. Ihere,
still oblivious to his surroundings, lie
had crossed the roadway to the Edg-
ware road, passing along it to tho
labyrinth of shabby streets that lio be
hind Paddlngton. Now, ns lie glanced
about him, lio saw with some surprise
how far he had come.
Tho damp remnants of tho fog still
hung about tho housetops In a filmy
veil. There wero no glimpses of green
to break tho monotony of tone. All
was quiet, dingy, neglected. But to
Clillcole the shnbblnoss was restful,
the subdued atmosphere n satisfaction.
Among these sad bouses, these passers
by, eacli filled with his own concerns,
ho experienced a sense of respite and
relief. In the fashionable streets that
bounded his own horizon If a man
paused in Ills walk to work out an Idea
ho Instantly drew n crowd of inquisi
tive or contemptuous eyes. Hero if a
man halted for half an hour it was no
body's business but his own.
Enjoying this thought, ho wandered
on for close upon an hour, moving
from one street to .another with steps
thnt wero listless or rapid, as inclina
tion prompted, Then, still noting with
vngraut aimlessness, ho stopped In his
wanderings and entered n small eating
I The place was low celled and dirty,
the air hot and steaming with the
smell of food, but Chllcoto passed
through tho door nnd moved to one or
the tnblcs with no expression of dis
gust nnd with far less furtive watch
fulness than he used in his own house.
By n curious mental twist he felt
grenter freedom, lnrger opportunities
in drab surroundings such ns those
thnn In the broad issues and weighty
responsibilities of his own life. Choos
ing a corner seat, he called for coffee:
nnd there, protected by shadow and
wrapped in cigarette smoke, ho set
nbout imagining himself some vagrant
unit who hud slipped his moorings and
wns blissfully adrift.
Tho Imagination was pleasant whllo
It lasted, but with him nothing was
permanent. Of into the greater pnrt
of his sufferings had been comprised
in the irritable fickleness of all his
alms the distaste for and Impossibili
ty of sustained effort In any direction.
Ho hnd barely lighted a second cigar
ette when the old restlessness fell
npon hlni "o stirred nervously In his
ho.tt, and the cigarette was scarcely
bti.Mied out when lie rose, paid his
small bid and left the simp.
Outside on the pavement he halted,
pulled out his watch and saw that two
hours stretched In front before any
appointment claimed his attention. Ho
wondered vaguely where he might go
to, what lie might do, in those two
hours. In the last few minutes a dis
taste for solitude had risen In his
mind, giving tho close street a loneli
ness that had escaped hlni before.
As ho stood wavering a cab passed
slowly down the street. The sight of
a well dressed man roused the cab
man. Flicking ills whip, he passed
Chllcoto dine, feigning to pull up.
The cab suggested civilization. Chll
eote's luluil veered suddenly, and ho
raised his hand. The vehicle stopped,
and he climbed in.
"Where, sir?" The cabman peered
down through the roof door.
Chllcoto raised his head. "Oh, any
where near Pall Mall." he said. Then,
as the horse started forward, he put
up his hand and shook the trapdoor.
"Wait!" ho called. "I've changed my
mind. Drive to Cndogau gardens. No.
The distance to Cadog'in Gardens
was covered quickly. Chllcoto had
hardly realized that his destination
wns reached when the cab pulled up.
Jumping out, he paid the faro and
walked quickly to tho hall door of No.
"Is Lady Astrupp at home?" ho ask
ed sharply as tho door swung back In
answer to Ids knock.
Tho servant drew buck deferentially.
"Her ladyship has almost finished
lunch, sir," he said.
For answer Chllcoto stepped through
the doorway and walked halfway
across the hall.
"All right." he said. "But don't dis
turb hor on my account. I'll wait in
tho white room till she hns finished."
And, without taking further notice of
the servant, he began 'to mount tho
Iu the room where he had chosen to
wait a pleasant wood fire brightened
the dull January afternoon and sof
tened the thick white curtains, the gilt
furniture and the Venetian vases filled
with white roses. Moving straight
forward, Chllcoto paused by the grate
aud stretched his hands to tho blaze:
then, with his usual instability, he
turned and passed to a couch that
stood a yard or two away.
On the coach, tucked away between
a novel and a crystal gazlug ball, was
a white Persian kitten, fast usleep.
Chllcote picked up the bull und held It
between his eyes nnd the fire, then he
laughed superciliously, tossed It back
Into Its placo and caught the kitten's
tail. The little nulinnl stirred, stretch
ed itself and began to pur. At the
same moment the door of the room
Chllcoto turned nround. "I particu
larly said you were not to be disturb
ed," ho began, "nave I merited dis
pleasure?" He spoke fast, with the
uneasy tone that so often underran
Lady Astrupp took his hand with a
confiding gesture and smiled.
"Never displeasure," she said linger
Ingly, and again shu smiled. Tho smllo
might have struck u close observer as
faintly artificial. But what man iu
Chlleote's frame of mind has time to
bo observant where women are con
cerned? The manner of the smile was
very sweet and almost caressing, aud
