"A treaty with Texas!" 1 ex
claimed. "Tho llrst draft, yes. We havo

"Yes. Now comes Mr. N'inholas

Calhoun smiled enigmatically.
"Hut slio lias gone," said I, "who
mows where? She, too, may havo
Balled for Oregon, for all wo know."
llo looked at me as though with a
flash of inspiration. "That may be,"
nnld he; "it may very well bo! That
would cost us our hold over I'aken
hnm. Neither would wo havo any
chance left with her."
"How do you mean. Mr. Calhoun?"
said I. "I do not understand you."
"Nicholas," said Mr. Calhoun, "that
lady was much impressed with ou."
Ho regarded me calmly, contempla
"I do not understand you," 1 reiter
ated. "I am glad that you do not and
did not. In that ease, all would havo
been over at once. You would never
havo 8ccn her n second time. Your
constancy was our salvation, nnd por
Imps your own! In duo time you will
boo many things more plainly. Meantime-,
bo suro Kngland will bo careful.
Sho will make no overt movement, I
Hhonld say, until she has heard from
Oregon; which will not bo before my
lady baroness shall have returned and
reported to I'akenham bore. All of
which means more time for us."
1 begun to see something or the
structure of bold enterprise which thin
mnn deliberately was planning; but no
comment offered itself; ho that pres
ently ho went on, as though In solilo
quy. "Tho Hudson Hay Company havo
deceived Kngland splendidly enough.
Dr. McLaughlin, good man that he Is,
has not suited the Hudson Hay Com

a leas tactful leader than himself,
thero will bo friction with our high

No man can toll when the thing will
como to an Issue. For my own part,
I would agree with l'olk that we ought
to own that country to llltyfour forty

wo can do nro two separate matters.
Should wo forco tho issue now and

not whoro! In my own soul, l bolievo
no man rimy set a limit to the growth
of tho idea of an honest government

Ho sighed as ho paused In his walk
and turned to mo. "Hut now, as I

sho cares for him! Now, jtalousy be

well handled. Repugnant as It is, we
must handle it."
1 experienced no great enthusiasm
at tho trend of events, and Mr. Cal
houn smiled at me cynically as ho
went on. "I soe you don't caro for
this sort of commission. At least,
this Is no midnight Interview. You

It seemed quite correct for the
daughter of our secretary of state to
call to Inquire for the health of tho
fair Senora Yturrlo, and to present
tho compliments of Mine. Calhoun, at
that time not in the city of Wash
ington. Matters went so smoothly
that 1 felt Justified In suggesting a lit
tle drive, and Sonora Yturrlo had no
hesitation in accepting. Quite natural
ly, our stately progress finally brought
us close to tho residence of Miss Cal
houn. That lady suggested that, slnco
tho day was warm, It might bo woll

llnd a sherbet; all of which also
seemed quite to tho wish of tho lady
from Moxico. The ease and warmth
of Mr. Calhoun's greeting to her wero
such that she soon was well at homo
and chatting very amiably. She Hpoko
Knglish with but little hesitancy.
l.ucrezla Yturrlo, at that tlmo not 111
known in Washington's foreign colony,
was beautiful, in a sensuous, ripe way.
Her hair was dark, heavily colled, and
packed in masses above an oval fore
head. Her brows wero straight, dark
and delicate; her teeth white and
strong; her lips red and full; her chin
well curved and deep. A round nrm
and taper hand controlled a most art

"We are especially glad alwaya to
hear of our friends from the south
west," said he, at last, with a alight
addition of formality In tono and at
titude. At these words I saw my indy'soyes
flicker. "It Is fate, Honor," mild nhe,
again easting down her eyes, nnd
sin ending out her hands as in resigna
tion, "fate which loft Texas and Mex
ico not always ono."
"That may be," said Mr. Calhoun.
"Perhaps fate, also, that thoso. of kin
should cling together."
"How can a mere woman know?" My
lady shrugged her very graceful and
beautiful Hhoulders somewhat ma
ture shoulders now, but still beauti
ful. "Dear senora," said Mr. Calhoun,
"there are so many things a woman
may not know. For instance, how
could she know If her husband should

lie was attached and pay a visit to

"How indeed, senor?"
"What If my young aide here, Mr.
Trist, should tell you that ho has seen
your husband some hundreds of miles
away and In conference with a lady
supposed to be somewhat friendly to

So soon had tho shaft gone home!
Her woman's Jealousy had offered a
point unexpectedly weak. Calhoun
bowed, without a smile upon his face.
"Mr. Pnkcnhnm, the Hritish minis
ter, la disposed to bo friendly to this
snmo lady. Your husband and a certnln
ofllcer of the Hritish navy called upon
this camo lady last week In Montreal

seemed only wise nnd fit that you
should not let any of thoso littlo per

complications In these perilous times.

Sho gurgled low In her throat at
this, any sort of sound, meaning to
remain ambiguous. Hut Calhoun was

You art welcome In my house. Your

ties, even thus."
Only now and ngaln she turned
uiion him the light of her splendid
eyes, searching him.

Hut suppose It could bo averted? Sup

If there was mockery in his tone, she
could not catch It; nor did her search

rippling laughter, her white teetn
gleaming. It was, after all, somewhat
difllcult to trifle with ono who had
been trained In intrigue all her life.
Calhoun laughed now In his own
quiet way. "Wo shall do better if we
deal entirely frankly, senora," said he.
"Let us then wnsto no time. Frankly,

her calmly, his finger tips together,

"And what is that, senor?" she
asked at length.

document to which he hnd earlier di

"I can not it is impossible!" sho ex
elnlmed, iib sho glanced at tho pages.
"It is our ruin !"
"No, senora," said Calhoun sternly;
"It means annexation of Texas to the
United States. Hut that is not your
ruin. It is your salvation. Your coun
try well niny doubt Kngland, even
Kngland bearing gifts!"
"I have no control over Senor Van
Zandt ho Is tho enemy of my coun
try!" she began.
Calhoun now fixed upon her tho full
cold blue blaze of his singularly pene
trating eyes. "No, senora," ho said
sternly; "but you havo access to my
friend Mr. Polk, and Mr. Polk is the
friend of Mr. Jackson, and thoy two

and not you, and so declare war
against Mexico. Thnt war would cost

Now, to avert that war, do you not
think that perhaps you can ask Mr.
Polk to say to Mr. Van Zandt that
