At the expense of a soiled hat Robert
Orme saves from arrest a Rlrl in a black
touring car who has caused a traffic jam
on State street. He buys a new hat and

lady in the black car, and learns that in

Orme refuses, and a fight ensues In
which Poritol Is overcome. He calls in
Senor Alcatrante. minister from his coun

to give up the bill. Orme goes for a walk
and sees, two Japs attack Alcatrante. He

recognizes one of tho Japs as her father's

Both Japs and South Americans want the

but the Jap eludes pursuit.
CHAPTER VII. Continued.
At the side of the girl, Orme now
walked slowly through the deserted
streets. It was some time before she
"After you left me at the home of
gey friends " she began at last.
"Don't try to tell about it," he in
terrupted quickly. "You are tired.
Wait for another time."
They were passing under a street
lamp at the moment, and she glanced
op at him with a grateful smile,
pleased apparently by his thought of
That is good of you," she exclaim
ed, "but my story Is easily told. Let
me go on with It. I explained myself
to my friends as best I could and went
to my room. Then it suddenly oc
curred to me that Maku and his friend
might have come to Eranston by

"I thought that the other man

tor car that we heard there was no
good reason for thinking that our man
was in it."
She paused.
"I know," he said. "I thought of
those things, too."
"It flashed on me," she went on,
"that if I could find the man, I might
he able to buy him off. I didn't be
lieve that he would dare to injure
xne. There are reasons why he should
not. My car had been taken in, but
I had them bring it out, and I told
them well, that part doesn't matter.
Enough that I made an excuse, and
went out with the car."
"You should have taken some one
with you."
"There was a likelihood that the
Japanese would run if I had a com
panion. As long as I was alone he
might be willing to parley, I thought.
At least, he would not be afraid of
me alone. So I went north on Sheri
dan road to the upper end of the low
er campus. There is a cross-road
there, you remember, cutting through
to the lake, and I turned in. I left
the car near a house that Is there, and
walked on to the edge of the bluff.

and I called out that I was alone. At
that he waited, but he did not get out
of the boat, and I was standing at
the edge of the breakwater, just
above him, before he actually seemed
to recognize me."
"Did you kaow him?" asked Orme.
"I never saw him before to my
knowledge; but he made an exclama
tion which indicated that he knew
"What did he do then?"
"I told him that I wished to talk to
him about the papers. His answer
was that, if I would step down into
the boat, he would talk. He said that
he would not leave the boat, and
added that he was unwilling to dis
cuss the matter aloud. And I was
foolish enouuli to believe his excuses.

self, why, I would whisper. I never
felt so like a conspirator."
She paused to look up at the street
sign at the corner which they had
reached, and turned to the right on
a shady avenue.
"Well. I got into the boat," she con
tinued. "I told him that I my father
was prepared to pay him a large sum
of money for the papers, but he only
shook his head and said. 'No, no.' I
named a sum; then a larger one; but
money did not seem to tempt him,
though I made the second offer as
large as I dared.
"How much will you take then?'
I asked at last. Instead of answering,
he bent down and started the motor,
and then I noticed for the first time
that while I was talking we had been
drifting away from the dock. I made
ready to jump overboard. We were
near the shore and the water was not
deep; anyway, I am a fair swimmer.
But he turned and seized my wrists
and forced me down into the bottom
of the boat I struggled, but It was
no use, and when I opened my mouth
to scream, he choked me with one
hand and with the other pulled from

to put It in my mouth."
She gave a weary little laugh.
"It was such a crumpled, unclean
handkerchief, I couldn't have stood
it. So I managed to gasp that if he
would only let me alone I would keep

"Oh. I don't think he Intended to

as I can make out. Is that I might

tried to take me with him. Prob

I didn't know who was In it I never

"Hardly a binding promise."
"Well, before he stopped threaten

he had made me swear over and over
that I would not call for help, that
I would not make any signal, that I
would sit quietly on the seat When
you recognized me, I felt that all need
of observing 'the promise was over."
"Naturally," muttered Orme.
She sighed. "It does seem as though
Fate had been against us," she said.
"Fate is fickle," Orme returned.
"You never know whether she will be
your friend or your enemy. But I be
lieve that she is now going to be our
friend for a change. Tomorrow I
shall get those papers."
The Trail of Maku.
When for the second time that night
lie bade the girl adieu and saw her
enter the house of her friends, Orme
went briskly to the electric car line.
He had not long to wait A car
came racing down the tracks and
stopped at his corner. Swinging
aboard at the rear platform, he
glanced within. There were four pas
sengers a man and woman who, ap
parently, were returning from an eve
ning party of some sort, since he was
in evening dress and she wore an
opera cloak; a spectacled man, with
a black portfolio in his lap; a seedy
fellow asleep in one corner, his head
sagging down on his breast, his hands
in his trousers pockets; and was it
possible? Orme began to think that
Fate had indeed changed her face
toward him. for the man who sat
huddled midway of the car, staring
straight before him with beady, ex
pressionless eyes, was Maku.
Under the brim of his dingy straw
hat a white bandage was drawn tight
around his head so tight that from
its under edge the coarse black hair
bristled out in a distinct fringe. The
blow of the wrench, then, must have
cut through the skin.
Well that would mean one more
scar on the face of the Japanese.
The other scar, how had Maku come
by that? Perhaps in some battle with
the Russians in Manchuria. He
seemed to be little more than a boy,
but then, one never could guess the
age of a Japanese, and for that mat
ter. Orme had more than" once been
told that the Japanese had begun to
impress very young soldiers long be
fore the battle of Mukden.
While making these observations,
Orme had drawn his hat lower over
his eyes. He hoped to escape recog
nition, for this opportunity to track
Maku to his destination was not to be
missed. He also placed himself in
such a position on the platform that
J his otn face was partly concealed by
And yet a doubt just the dim
shadow of a doubt possessed her. It
seemed as though there might be
some one she had forgotten. There
was the diamond necklace for Aunt
Mary, the smoking jacket for Uncle
John (to be sure, he never smoked,
but what else is there to give a man?),
the cut glass decanter and liquor
glasses for Cousin George (what a
pity he doesn't drink!), the toys for
the children, the silver drinking cup
for Fido. the um-um-um yes, she had
them all crossed off her lfst And
the crosk-o&r which protected the
windows at the end of the car.
In his favor was the fact that Maku
would not expect to see him. Doubt
less the Japanese was more concerned
with his aching head than with any
suspicion of pursuit though his
somewhat indeterminate profile, as
visible to Orme, gave no indication of
any feeling at all. So Orme stood
where he could watch without seem
ing to watch, and puzzled over the
problem of following Maku from the
car without attracting attention.
The refusal of the other Japanese to
accept the girl's offer of money for the
papers had given Orme a new idea of
the importance of the quest Maku
and his friend must be Japanese gov
ernment agents just as Poritol and
Alcatrante were unquestionably acting
for their government This, at least,
was the most probable explanation
that entered Orme's mind. The syndi
cate, then or concession, or what
ever it was must be of genuine inter
national significance.
Though Orme continued to smother
his curious questionings as to the
meaning of the secret, he could not
ignore bis general surmises. To put
his confidence In the girl to act for
her and for her alone that was
enough for him; but it added to his
happiness to think that she might be
leading him into an affair which was
greater than any mere tangle of pri
vate interests. He knew, too, that
upon the mesh of private interests,
public interests are usually woven.
The activity of a Russian syndi
cate in Korea had been the more
or less direct cause of the Russo war; the activity of
rival American syndicates In Vene
zuela had been, but a few years
before, productive of serious in
ternational complications. In the
present instance, both South Ameri
cans and Japanese were interested.
But Orme knew in his soul that there
could be nothing unworthy in any
action in which the girl took part
She would not only do nothing un
worthy; she would understand the sit
uation clearly enough to know wheth
er the course which offered itself to
her was worthy or not
In events such as she had that
night faced with him, any other girl
Orme had ever met would have shown
moments of weakness, impatience, or
fear. But to her belonged a calm
which came from a clear perception of
the comparative unimportance of pet
ty incident She was strong, not as a

man Is strong, but In the way a wom
an should be strong.
The blood went to his cheeks as he
remembered how tenderly he had
spoken to her in the boat, and how
plain he had made his desire for her.
What should he call his feeling? Did
love come to men as suddenly as
this? She had not rebuked blm
there was that much to be thankful
for; and she must have known that
his words were as involuntary as his
action in touching her shoulder with
his hand.
But how could she have rebuked
him? She was, in a way, indebted to
him. The thought troubled him. Had
he unintentionally taken advantage
of her gratitude by showing' affection
when she wished no more than com
radeship? And had she gently said
nothing, because he had done some
thing for her? If her patience with
him were thus to be explained, it
must have been based upon her recog
nition of his unconsciousness.
Still, the more he pondered, the
more clearly he saw that she was not

good will, would permit a false situa
tion to exist Her sincerity was too

pathy with him went even so far as
to accept his attitude when it was a
shade more than friendly.
More than friendly! Like a white
light the truth flashed upon him as he
stood there on the rocking platform of
the car. He and she would have to be
more than friendly! He had never
seen her until that day. He did not
even know her name. But all his life
belonged to her, and would belong to
her forever. The miracle which had
been worked upon him, might it not
also have been worked upon her? He
felt unworthy, and yet she might care
might already have begun to care
'but' he put the daring hope out of his
mind, and looked again at Maku.
The Japanese had not moved. His
face still wore Its racial look of pa-
tlent indifference; his hands were still
crossed In his lap. He sat on the edge
of the seat. In order that his feet
might rest on the floor, for his legs
were short; and with every lurch of
the car, he swayed easily, adapting
himself to the motion with an uncon
scious ease that betrayed supple mus
cles. The car stopped at a corner and
the man and woman got out, but
Maku did not even seem to glance at
them. Orme stepped back to make
way for them on the platform, and as
they descended and the conductor
rang the bell, he looked out at the
suburban landscape, with its well
lighted, macadamized streets, its va
cant lots, and its occasional houses,
which seemed to be of the better
class, as nearly as he could judge in
the uncertain rays of the arc lamps.
He turned to the conductor, who met
his glance with the look of one who
thirsts to talk.
"People used to go to parties in car
riages and automobiles," said the con
ductor, "but now they take the car
when they've any distance to go. It's
quicker and handier."
"I should think that would be so,
here in the suburbs," said Orme.
"Oh, this ain't the suburbs. We

this time of night."
"That depends. Sometimes we have
a crowd. Tonight there's hardly any
one. Nobody else is likely to get on

"Do you go to the heart of the

have you noticed that Jap in there?"
The conductor nodded toward Maku.
"What about him?"
"He was put aboard by a cop. Looks
as though somebody bad slugged
"That's so." commented Orme. "H!a
head is bandaged."
"Judging from the bandage, it must
have been a nasty crack," continued
the conductor. "But you wouldn't
know he'd been hurt from his face.
Say. you can't tell anything about
those Johns from their looks, can you,
"You certainly can't," replied Orme.
The conductor glanced out. "There's
the elevated." he said. "I'll have to
go in and wake that drunk. He gets
off here."
Orme watched the conductor go to
the man who was sleeping in the
corner and shake hint. The man
nodded his head vaguely, and settled j

doubt that the beard was originally

door came the conductor's voice:
"Wake up!" Shake "You get off
here!" Shake "Wake up, there!"
But the man would not awaken.
Maku was sitting but a few feet
from the sleeping man. He had not
appeared to notice what was going on,
but now. just as the conductor seemed
about to appeal to the motorman for
help, the little Japanese slid along the
seat and said to the conductor: I
wake him."
The conductor stared, and scratched
his head. "If you can," he remarked,
"it's more'n I can do."
Maku did not answer, but putting
his hand behind the sleeping man's
back, found some sensitive vertebra.
With a yell, the man awoke and leap

him by the arm and led him to the

toward the sidewalk.
"Did you see the Jap?" exclaimed
the conductor. "Stuck a pin Into him,
that's what he did."
"Oh, I guess not" laughed Orme.
"He touched his spine, that was all."
The car stopped. Tho spectacled
passenger with the portfolio arose and
got off by way of the front platform.
Would Maku also take the elevated?
If he did, unless he also got off the
front platform, Orme would have to
act quickly to keep out of sight
But Maku made no move. He had
returned to his former position, and
only the trace of an elusive smile on
his lips showed that he had not for
gotten the incident in which he had
just taken part Meantime Orme had
maintained his partial concealment
and though Maku had turned his head
when he went to the conductor's help,
be had not appeared to glance toward
tho back platform.
The conductor rang the bell, and
the car started forward again with its
two passengers Maku within, Orme
without the pursuer and the pursued.
"I thought the motorman and I was
going to have to chuck that chap off,"
commented the conductor. "If the

"An I didn't even like to rub the

I heard of a man that was made deaf
that way. Smashed his ear drums."
"I wonder where the Jap will get

"Oh, he'll go right through to the
barns and take a Clark street car.
There's a lot of them Japs lives over
that way. He's one of 'em, I guess."
"Unless he's somebody's cook or
"I don't believe he is. But of
course, you never know."
"That's true." said Orme. "One

As the car plunged onward. Maku
suddenly put his hand in his pocket
He drew it out empty. On his face
was an expression which may mean
"surprise" among the Japanese. He
then fumbled in his other pockets, but
r -rcntly he did not find what he
.wo looking for. Orme wondered
what it might be.
The search continued. A place of
twine, a pocket knife, a handkerchief,
were produced in turn and inspected.
At last he brought out a greenback,
glancing at it twice beforo returning
it to his pocket Orme knew that it
must be the marked bill. But Maku
was looking for something else. His
cheek glistened with perspiration; ev
idently he bad lost something of
value. After a time, however, he
stopped hunting his pockets, and
seemed to resign himself to his loss
a fact from which Orme gathered that
the object of his search was nothing
so valuable that it could not be re
placed. When he had been quiet for a time,
he again produced the greenback, and
examined it attentively. From the
way he held it Orme judged that he
wa3 looking at the well-remembered
legend: "Remember Person You Pay
This To." Presently he turned it over
and held it closer to his eyes. He was,
of course, looking at the abbreviated
"You'd think that Jap had never
seen money before," remarked the
"Perhaps he hasn't that kind," re
plied Orme.
"Maybe he guesses it's counter
feit." "Maybe."
"Looks as though he was trying to
read the fine print on it."
"Something you and I never have
done, I imagine," said Orme.
"That's a fact," the conductor
chuckled. "I never noticed anything
about a bill except the color of it and
the size of the figure."
"Which is quite enough for most
"Sure! But I bet I pass on a lot of
counterfeits without knowing It"
"Very likely. The Jap has evidently
finished his English lesson. See how
carefully he folds the bill before he
puts it away."
"We're comin to the barns." said
the conductor. "Far as we go."
As he' spoke, the car slowed down
and stopped, and Maku arose from hi3
seat. Orme was at the top of the
steps, ready to swing quickly to the
ground, if Maku left the car by the
rear door. But the Japanese turnei
to the forward entrance. Orme waited
until Maku had got to the ground,
then he. too. descended.
Maku did not turn at once toward
the Clark street car that was waiting
to start downtown. He stood hesitant
in the street After a moment, his
attention seemed to be attracted by
the lights of an all-night restaurant,
not far away, and ho crossed the

is that propounded by Doctor Hunt of

gleaming sign.
Orme followed slowly, keeping oa
the other side of the street If Maku
was hungry, why. Maku would eat
while he himself would wait outside
"like a starving child 'before a baker's
window. But Maku, it seemed, was
not hungry. Through the window
Orme saw him walk to the cashier's
desk and apparently ask a question
In answer, the woman behind the
desk pointed to a huge book which lay
on the counter near by. Orme recog
nized it as the city directory.
For some time Maku studied the
I-ages. Then he' seemed to appeal to
the cashier for help, for she pulled
the book to her. looked at him as
though she were asking a question,
and then, rapidly running through the
leaves, placed her finger at a certain
part of a certain page and turned the
book around so that the Japanese
could see. He nodded and, after bow
ing in a carious fashion, came back to
the street
Orme had, meantime, walked on for
a little way. He would have gone to
the restaurant in an endeavor to find
out what address Maku had wished,
but for two reasons: The cashier
might refuse to tell him, or she might
have forgotten the name. In either

event his opportunity to follow Make
would thus be lost and to follow
Maku was still his best course. Ac
cordingly he watched the Japanese
go back to a Clark street car and
climb aboard.
It was an open car, with transverse
seats, and Maku had chosen a position
about two-thirds of the way back
There was, as yet only one other pas
senger. How to get aboard without
being seen by Maku was a hard prob
lem for Orme, but he solved it by
taking a chance. Walking rapidly to
ward the next corner, away from the
car, he got out of the direct rays ol
the street lamp and waited.
Presently the car started. It al
most reached Orme's corner when he
signaled it and, hurrying into the
street, swung on to the back platform.
There had been barely time for the
car to slow down a little. Maku could
not well have seen him without turn
ing his head, and Orme had watched
the little Japanese closely enough to
know that he had continued to stare
straight before him.
Safe on the black platform, a desire
to smoke came to Orme. He found a
cigar in his case and lighted it While
he was shielding the match, he looked
over his hollowed band and saw Maku
produce a cigarette and light it The
Japanese bad apparently wished the
consolation of tobacco just as Orme
"An odd coincidence," muttered
Orme. "I hope it wasn't mind-reading."
And he smiled as he drew a
mouthful of smoke.

left The car was getting well down
into the city. Suddenly Maku worked
along to the end of his seat and got
down on the running-board. The con

and the Oriental jumped off.
The action had been so quick that
Orme, taken off his guard, had not

after Maku, he saw that the Japanese,

beyond the corner. He hurried quick
