At the expense of a soiled hat Herbert
Orme saves from arrest a Klrl in a black
touring car who has caused a traffic Jam

It. A second time he helps the girl in the
black car and learns that In Tom and
Bessie WalUngham they have mutual
friends, but gets no further hint of her
Identity. He discovers another inscrip
tion on the marked bill, which in a futile
attempt to decipher it, he copies and
places the copy in a drawer in his apart
ment. Senor Poritol. South American,
calls and claims the marked bill. Orme
refuses, and a fight ensues in which Pori
tol is overcome. He calls In Senor Al
catrante, minister from his country, to
vouch for him. Orme still refuses to Rive
up the bill. He learns that a Jap has
called for him. Orme goes for a walk
and sees two Japs attack Alcatrante. He
rescues him. The minister tries diplo
macy, but falls to get the marked bill.
Returning to his rooms Orme is attacked
by two Japs who effect a forcible ex
change of the marked bill for another.
Orme finds the girl of the black car wait
ing for him. She also wants the bill. Orme
tells his story. She recognizes one of the
Japs as her father's butler. Maku. The

to the hiding place of Important papers

South Americans want the papers. .Orme

CHAPTER V. Continued.
So he Jumped to his feet and ran
northward, then turned to the west.
Circling about, he made for the gate
at which he had entered. His pur
suer either took the wrong lead in the
darkness or stopped to examine Maku,
for when Orme went through the"
gate and doubled back, outside the
fence, to the car, there was no sound
Df steps behind him. He Jumped to
the chauffeur's seat.
"Well?" inquired the girl, eagerly.
"Too late," said Orme. "I'm sorry.
I caught Maku, but the man with the
envelope got away."
She laid a hand on his arm. "Are
you hurt?" There was unconcealed
anxiety in her voice.
To say the things he yearned to
say! To be tender to her! But he
controlled his feelings and explained
briefly what had happened, at the
same time throwing on the power and
driving the car slowly northward.
"I only know that the fellow ran
northward," he said. "He may have
worked back or he may have gone
en. He may have climbed another
tree and waited."
By this time they had come to the
northern limits of the grounds, but he
had seen no one.
Suddenly the girl exclaimed:
Orme stopped the car. Somewhere
from the distance came a faint hum.
"Another car!" he muttered.
"Yes," she said. "Oh. but I can do
no more. I am tired, Mr. Orme. We
cannot catch that car, even if it does
hold the man we want and there Is
no way of being sure that it does."
"If there is any place to leave you,
I will go after him alone." He had
turned the car as he spoke and was
sending it slowly southward.
"No," she said wearily. "We you
must do no more tonight. Tou have
been so good, Mr. Orme to help me
In a matter of which I could tell you
almost nothing. I won't even try to
thank you except by saying that you

Its greatness without her telling him.
His recognition of her plight had been
unaccompanied by any suggestion of
Ignored conventions. No gushing
thanks would have pleased him half
He smiled at her wistfully. "Does
It all end here?"
"No," she said, "I will not let It
end here. We are friends already; in
fact, Mr. Orme, as soon as I can do
so, I will see that we are friends In
name. Can you accept as little a
promise as that?"
"I can accept any promise from
you," he said gravely. "And now
shall I take you home?"
"Not home. It is too far. But I

-who will take me in. Turn here,
Under her guidance he took the car
through several streets, drawing up
at last before a large, comfortable
looking place, set back from the
street, with a wide, shrub-dotted lawn
before It. Several windows were still
lighted. He descended to help her
She hesitated. "I hate to ask It,
Mr. Orme," she finally said, "but you

A Chance Lead.
To follow the girl's suggestion and
return at once to Chicago was Orxne's
intention when he said good-night to
her. The hour was close to midnight,
and the evening had been crowded so
full with bewildering adventure that
he was tired. Moreover, he looked
forward to a morning that might well
test his endurance even more strenu
ously. He had now committed himself
definitely to continue In the field
against the Japanese. Except for his
desire to serve this wonderful girl
who had come so suddenly into his
life, he doubtless would have permit
ted the mystery of the marked bill
to remain unsolved. But since the
recovery of the stolen papers was so
important to her, he was prepared to
run. any risk In the struggle.
Who was she? But no. that was a
question she did not wish him to ask.
She was simply "Girl" beautiful, ten
der, comprehending his ideal In
carnate. As he stood there, hesitant,
before the house into which she had
disappeared, he pictured her again
even to the strand of rebellious hair
which had blown across her cheek.
He could discover no fault In her
A man came Into view on the drive
at the side of the house; a servant
to care for the car, of course; and
Orme, with the uneasy feeling of one
who has been trespassing, moved
away toward the corner of the block.
He looked back, however, and saw the
newcomer clamber into the car and
send it slowly up the drive.
At the same time a light illumined
one of the upper windows of the
house. A shadow was thrown on the
curtain. Perhaps it was the girl her
self. What explanation had she given
her friends for appearing so late at
their door? Probably she had told
them no more than that she was tired
and belated.. She was not the kind
of girl from whom an elaborate ex
planation would be asked or ex
pected. Then a thought startled him. Was
this, perhaps, her home? No, she
had spoken of the people who lived
here as her friends, and she would
not have tried to keep the truth from
him by subterfuge. If this were her
home and she had not wished him to
know it, she would have requested
him to leave her before they bad
come so far.
It dawned upon him that It would
not be hard for him to learn who
lived in this house, and possibly
through that knowledge to get a clue
to her Identity. His heart warmed
as he realized how completely she
had trusted him. His assurance that
he would not try to find out who she
was had satisfied her. And Orme
knew that. If she had been so readily
assured, it was because she had rec
ognized the truth and devotion in
With a happy sigh, he turned his
back once and for all and walked
rapidly away. But he did not go
toward the electric-car line, which
he knew must lie a few blocks to the
west. Instead, he retraced the
course they had come, for he had de
cided to visit the university campus
once more and try to discover what
had become of Maku, and more espe
cially of the other Japanese, who bad
secured the papers. That he would
be recognized and connected with the
attack on Maku, was unlikely.
When he came to the corner of
Sheridan road and Chicago avenue, he
hesitated for a moment Should he
go north through the campus and
seek a trace of the Japanese who had
escaped? Nearly half an hour had
gone since the adventure among the
trees, and the man must have got
completely away by this time. Hav
ing the papers, he surely would not
linger to learn the fate of Maku.
Orme found himself wondering how
the Japanese had got to Evanston.
Granting that it had not taken them
long to solve the abbreviated direc
tions on the five-dollar bill, they could
hardly have come by motor-car, for
they had had a good half-hour start,
and yet Orme had discovered them
before their work was completed.
Only on the assumption that their car
had broken down on the way could
Orme admit that they had used a
motor-car. Moreover, how were two
Japanese, whose appearance did not
indicate the possesion of much ready
money how .were they likely to have
a car, or even to rent one? And had
they believed that they might be
pursued? Would they not have come
to Evanston by an obvious route of
train or trolley?
These considerations led Orme to
think that the car which he and the
girl had heard in the distance could
not have been occupied by the es
The fellow, then, had probably made
for the electric-car line, and in that
event he would be well oa his way to
Chicago by this time. The car he had
caught must have gone southward
from Evanston about 10:45. The con
ductor would be likely to remember
having had a Japanese on board; per-
haps he would e-en remember where
the Oriental had got off. The natural
course for Orme. therefore, was to
take a car himself and. if he did not

feathers are almost like some of those

a goodly number of males also, and
when the flocks put on speed the

He came to the lake without en

given him, to use a tongue which was

Orme decided quickly to get away
from this neighborhood. But Just as
he was about to bid the life-saver a
casual good-night, two men came
around the corner of the building.
One was a policeman, the other a
young Japanese. Orme unobtrusive

"AU right, I guess." replied the life

"Come," said the policeman, after
an unsuspicious glance at Orme, and,
mounting the steps, he led his inter
preter into the station.
Now, indeed, it was time for Orme
to slip away. Maku might be brought
out at any moment. But Orme
lingered. He was nearer to the solu
tion of the secret if he kept close to
Maku, and he realized, for that mat
ter, that by watching Maku closely

might be led straight to the other

Orme had been straining his ears
in a vain endeavor to catch the words
of Asuki. But suddenly his attention
was diverted by a sound from the
lake. It was the "puh-puh-puh-puh"
of a motor-boat, apparently a little
distance to the northward. The ex

"She seems to have been beached
up north here a little way."
"She may have been. Or they've

In Orme's mind arose a surmise
that in this motor-boat Maku and his
companion had come from Chicago.
The surmise was so strong as to de
velop quickly into a certainty. And
if the Japanese had come by this
boat. It stood to reason that the one
who had the papers was escaping in

for Maku and, at last, had pushed off
to return alone.
Were these Japanese acting for
themselves? That did not seem pos
sible. Then who was their em

these questions, for he had deter
mined on a course of action. He
spoke to the life-saver, who appeared
to be listening to the droning con

Orme knew what was happening, the
young man opened the door and
called into the station: "Hey, there!

motor-boat out there."
"What's that?" The policeman
strode to the door.
"Don't you hear that boat out

"Sure. I hear it"

passed for an Introduction. The po

The policeman started. "How did
he know what we were talking about

"He understand English, but not

To the policeman this explanation
was satisfactory. Orme, of course,
found in It a corroboration of his
guess. Maku evidently did not wish
suspicion directed against the motor
boat. The policeman reentered the sta
tion, eager to avail himself of the In
formation which Maku was now dis
posed to give him.
Orme turned to the life-saver. "The
Jap is lying," he said.
"Of course. If he understands Eng
lish so well, he certainly knows how
to make himself understood in it.
His story of the bicycle Is preposter

"Doesn't it occur to you that per

hospital, when a neighbor came to say
house and said, "Why don't you try a
bottle of Dr. Kilmer'e Swamp-Root?" I
was willing to try anything to get relief
from my suffering. My wife bought a bot
tle of your medicine which I began taking
and soon noticed a change for the better.
I continued taking it aad got better right
along, my appetite returned and I wae
able to resume work.
I hare used several bottles of Swamp
Root and know that if I had not taken it,
I would have been operated on, and per
haps never recovered. I never fail to tell
my friends about Dr. Kilmer's SwassD
Root as I know it will save many people
from suffering and perhaps, as in say
ease, a dangerous operation.
