important papers stolen from her father.
Both Japs and South Americans want the

They passed a long series of doors,
the glass panels of which were in
scribed, "The Wallingham Company
Private," -with index fingers pointing
ihe direction of the main entrance.
This was the Chicago branch of the
great New York corporation, and
Thomas Wallingham, Sr.. had placed
his son in charge of it two years
before. The business was the manu
facture of refrigerators. One side of
the reception room which Orme en
tered hurriedly, Alcatrante still be
side him, was given over to a large
specimen refrigerator chamber, built
in with glistening white tiles. The
massive door, three feet thick, was
wide open, showing the spotless Inner
chamber. In the outer wall was a ther
mometer dial fully a foot In diameter.

Orme stopped and looked again at Al

look, but the South American did not
flinch. Indeed, the glance which met
his own seemed to Orme to be dis
armingly good natured. Its essence
was a humorous recognition that the

WASHINGTON'S TENT FLAG
His Headquarters' Colors Are Now in
the National Museum at
A valuable relic of Washington has
been recently added to the Valley
Forge Museum of American History.
This is Washington's headquarters flag.
His marquee was purchased by the
museum last fall at a cost of $5,000.
after having been exhibited for years
In the National museum at Washing
trante would cling to him like an
Old Man of the Sea, awaiting the op
portunity to get the better of him.
Every wile would be employed; but
publicity was no part of the game
Orme began really to believe that.
To shake off Alcatrante, perhaps
there was no better way than to lure
him to some deserted place and over
power him. But would not Alcatrante
be likely to have anticipated such a
move? And would he not resort to
desperate measures of his own before
Orme could put his own plans into
practise? Bixby might help.
Orme walked over to the inquiry
window. "I want to see Mr. Bixby."
he said, offering his card.
The yming woman behind the win
dow took the card, but at the same
time she said: "Mr. Bixby left a few
minutes ago. He won't be back to
day. Shall I keep the card for him?"
"It doesn't matter, thank you," he
said, turning away. Luck was against
him. Besides Bixby no one in the of
fice knew him.
Alcatrante smiled genially. "Since
Mr. Bixby is absent," he remarked,
"shall we leave the verification of the
notes until tomorrow?"
"What are ycu talking about?" ex
"Why " Alcatrante's face was the
picture of astonishment "the Walllng
iiam company notes, of course. The
notes you wish to sell me." His voice
was raised so that the girl behind the
window could not help hearing.
"Rot!" said Orme.
"What?" A note of Indignation crept
into Alcatrante's voice. "Are you
evading? Perhaps you thought I would
not insist on the verification." An
other clerk, a man. had joined the girl
behind the window. Alcatrante sud
denly addressed hhn. "This Mr. Orme
told me that he needed to raise money
and would transfer to me cheap some
notes signed by your company. I met
him at the hotel. He said that, if I
would come here with him. he would
show the notes and have them veri
fied. I don't understand."
The clerk left the window, and,
opening a door, came into the recep
tion room. "What are the notes you
have?" he asked.
"I have none," replied Orme, In dis
gust. "I have never pretended to have
any. This man is crazy, I think." He
pointed to Alcatrante. "He has fol
lowed me here uninvited for reasons of
his own. I asked for Mr. Bixby, whom
I know. I would have asked for Mr.
.Wallingham. my personal friend, but
that I had already learned of his being
"There's funny business here some
where," exclaimed Alcatrante, with
great earnestness. "Do you mean to
say that you did not introduce your
self to me in the lobby of the Framing
ton and ask me to buy the notes?"
Orme did not answer.
With a conservative eye the clerk
looked at the two. He was not one to
Involve himself in a dubious affair.
"I can't settle this matter for you,
gentlemen," he said.
With a slight bow, Orme went Into
the hall. It dawned upon him why Al
catrante had invented so remarkable
a story. Without question, the min
ister had feared that Orme would en
list aid in the office, or that at least he
would manage to deposit the coveted
papers in safety while he found other
means to get rid of his shadow. Hence
the sudden effort to discredit Orme.

ton. Xow. through the courtesy of
Miss Frances B. Lovell, a descendant
of Betty Lewis, the sister of Washing
ton, the flag of the commander-in-chief
of the armies of the patriots is exhib
ited with the famous war tent.
For yeara the flag has been a treas
ured heirloom In Miss Lovell's family,
and few have known of its existence.
Upon her father's death she became
its owner. It was known to the family
as "Washington's headquarters flag."
"That it is the unidentified flag of
Pcale's portraits there can be no
i doubt," says Rev. W. Herbert Bark,
In the- long corridor Orme gave no
further attention to Alcatrante, who
was pattering along beside him. The
course he nor.- had in mind was to hire
a cab and ride out of the city all the
way to Arradale. if possible. The dis
tance could not be much greater than
15 miles. If Alcatrante chose to pur
sue, well and good. There would be
ways of disposing of him.
Then an audacious notion flashed
into Orme's mind. Why not let Alca
trante ride with him? Why not take
the minister all the way to his destina
tion and at the end turn him over a
The idea was hardly practicable. He
might meet other enemies, and in that
event he would not care to have an
enemy already at his side. It came to
him for the first time that the nearer
he approached his goal, the greater
would be the opposition he would have
to overcome. Whatever else the South
Americans and Japanese might do.
they would have their guards about
the house of the girl's father. Hith
erto he had assumed that, once free
of Alcatrante and safe on the train to
Arradale, he would have plain going;
but now he realized that the dangers
would pile up higher as he advanced.
In any event, he must get rid of Al
catrante, and as they approached the
elevator grills, be spoke.
"Senor." he said, "unless you stop
following me, I shall be obliged to hurt
you. I give you fair warning."
Alcatrante laughed. "If you hurt
me, as you threaten, you will find your
self in difficulties. You will be arrest
ed, and you will have no opportunity
to deliver the documents on time. My
position as minister my extra-terri-toriality
will make it very difficult for
you to extricate yourself."
Orme looked grimly down into the
sallow face. "My fist against your
chin." he said, "might do it."
Alcatrante did not lose his smile.
"You will hardly try that, I think.
There would be no time for you to get
away. People in these passing eleva
tors would see you."
Orme turned away and pressed the
"down" button, and a few seconds
later a descending car stopped. He
pushed his way in, Alcatrante after
The elevator was crowded. Clerks
and stenographers were beginning to
leave their offices, for the hour was
nearly five. Orme wedged his way in
at one side, and, in order to gain a
momentary sense of seclusion, turned
his back upon the persons who were
pressing against him and stood with
his face to the side of the cage, looking
through the scroll work of the grating
to the swiftly ascending cables in the
next well. He was conscious that Al
catrante stood close to him as the car
began to slip downward. It was all
very ridiculous, this persistent pursuit
Suddenly Alcatrante's voice burst
out: "Stop the car! I've been robbed!
Stop the car!"
There was immediate commotion; a
girl screamed, and the swaying of the
huddled group made the car rattle.
The elevator man quickly threw over
his lever. The car stopped with a
jerk between floors.
Orme had started to turn with the
others, but with a quick exclamation
he checked his movement and pressed
his face against the grating. A re
markable thing had happened. The
ascending car in the next well had
stopped at Alcatrante's outcry. The
few passengers it was carrying,
eager to see what was happen
ing, hurried to the side nearest
to Orme. Less than two feet from his
face was the face of a girl. Almost
before he saw her at all he knew her.
He forgot that ho had given her ap
parent cause to doubt him; he did not
stop to wonder what she was doing
in this building.
"Girl!" he whispered.
Her lips parted: her eyes opened
"Girl! Go to Tom Wallingham's of
fice. I'll come up there. Keep out of
sight when you hear me coming. Al
catrante is with me."
"I have the papers," he added, and
his heart thumped happily when he
saw joy and gratitude flash into her
From his position and manner he
might have been explaining to her
what was happening In bis own car.
But now, conscious of the necessity of
taking part in the discussion about
him, he reluctantly turned away from
Alcatrante was still exclaiming vol
ubly. His purse had disappeared. It
had been in his pocket just before he
entered the car. Therefore someone
in the car must have taken it. He did
not accuse any single person, though
he flashed suspicious glances at Orme.
who recognized, of course, that the
move was directed against himself.
To embarrass Orme with arrest and
detention would well suit the purpose
of Alcatrante. At this late hour such
an event would prevent the delivery of
the papers. Orme wondered whether
the minister had realized that the pa
pers might be found by the police and
disposed of properly. The explana
tion of this apparent oversight on the
part of Alcatrante was not difficult,
however, for perhaps it was not a
part of the plan that Orme should be
founder of the museum, who obtained
the treasured relic. "The flag of one
picture is a blue jack with 13 stars.
The flag now in the museum here Is a
light blue silk with 13 stars, the blue
faded and the stars yellow with age."
The flag is 36 inches long and 2S
inches wide. The heading Is of home
spun linen, with three eyelets worked
with thread. The stars are six-pointed,
double stitched, and the silk back
of them has been cut out to show the
stars on both sides. The stars are not
arranged in a circle, but In lines fol

actually thrown into a cell. It was
more likely that an arrest would be
followed, after as much delay as Al
catrante could secure, by a refusal to
prosecute. One advantage to Alca
trante would be the opportunity of
getting assistance while Orme was in
the bands of the police so that after
the prisoner was released he would
have more than one person to contend
with. Alcatrante would give up acting
"Somebody has my purse!" Alca
trante was shouting. 'Somebody here!
You must not let anybody out!"
The elevator boy had been gaping in
seeming paralysis, but now several of
the passengers men who doubtless
were sure of their positions were an
grily ordering him to take the car
down. Some of them had trains to
"Xo! Xo!" screamed Alcatrante.
Orme had kept out of the discussion,
but now he spoke quietly. "I think.
Senor Alcatrante" he uttered the
name distinctly, knowing that the
South American probably did not wish
himself identified--"! think that, if the
boy will take the car almost to the
bottom, the starter will help you."
There was a chorus of seconds to
this suggestion. The boy pulled the
lever and let the car descend slowly,
while Alcatrante continued to exclaim.
How would the South American try
to throw suspicion where he wished
it? Orme puzzled over this question,
for certainly the police would not ar
rest all the passengers. And then he
suddenly remembered how Alcatrante
had crowded against him when they
entered the car.
A cold wave of horror swept over
him. Was it possible that ?
He put his band into the left side
pocket of his coat. Something was
there that did not belong there a
smooth, bulging purse. Alcatrante had
put it there.
Orme fingered the purse. He would
have to get rid of it, but he dared not
to drop it to the floor, and if ho thrust
it through the grating and let it fall
into the elevator well, some one would
be almost certain to detect the action.
There was only a moment left before
the car would stop. He looked down at
Alcatrante, who was close in front of
him. Then his face relaxed and in
spite of the gravity of his situation he
smiled; for he had found a solution.
Promptly he acted upon it.
The car halted just below the celling
of the first floor. "What's the matter
with you?" called a voice the voice
of the starter.
"Man robbed." said the elevator boy.
"Bring the car down."
"Xo!" shouted Alcatrante. "The
thief is in the car. a He must not es
cape." "I won't let him out Bring the car
The boy let the car descend to the
floor level. The starter placed himself
against the gate. "Xow then, who was
robbed?" he demanded.
Alcatrante crowded forward. "It was
I. My purse is gone. I had it just
before I got in."
"Oh, it was you, was it?" The start
er remembered the, trouble Alcatrante
had made a few minutes before. "Sure
you didn't drop it?"
"I am certain that I did not."
The passengers were shuffling their
feet about, in a vain effort to touch the
lost property. A young girl was gig
"Perhaps you put it in the wrong
pocket, and didn't look careful
"I looked. I looked." exclaimed Al
catrante. "Do you think I would not
know. See! I put it in this pocket,
which is now empty."
He thrust his hand into the pocket
which he had indicated. Suddenly his
expression changed to astonishment.
"Find it?" grinned the starter.
With the blankest of looks Alca
trante pulled the purse from his pock
et. "It was not there two minutes
ago." he muttered.
"You've been dreamin'." remarked
the starter, opening the gate with a
bang. 'All out!" v
Orme chuckled to himself. In a mo
ment Alcatrante would realize how the
purse had been replaced in his pocket,
and he would be furious. Meantime
Orme entered another elevator, to go
back to the eighth floor, and, as he had
expected, the minister followed him.
When they were outside the office of
the Wallingham company Orme paused,
his hand on the door. "Senor Alca
trante." he said, "this business must
end. I shall simply have to call the
"At your own risk." said Alcatrante.
Then an ugly light flashed in his eyes
and his upper lip lifted above his yel
low teeth. "You get the better of me
there in the elevator," he snarled.
"You won't get the better again."
Orme opened the office door. He
glanced about the reception room, to
see whether the girl had hidden her
self. She was not in view; indeed,
there was even no one at the inquiry
The door of the great sample re
frigerator was ajar only two or three
feet. When Orme was there a few
minutes before it had been wide open.
He wondered whether the girl had
chosen it as her hiding place. If she j
had. his plan of action would be sim
plified, for he would slip the papers in
which, Mr. Burk says, seems to have
been the earlier arrangement
Mr. Burk, in speaking of the way In
which he came into possession of the
flag, said: "A few weeks ago I was

In a casual way he folded his arms.
He could now put his hand into his in
side coat pocket and the motion would
hardly be noticed.
For a moment he stood as though
waiting for some one to appear at the
Inquiry window. Though Alcatrante
was watching him closely, Orme con
tinued to act as" if he were the only
person in the room.
And now the dial of the big ther
mometer in the outer wall of the re
frigerator appeared to catch his eye,
and he strolled over to it. This placed
him almost in the open doorway. Ap
parently his eyes were on the dial, but
in reality he was glancing side wise into
the chamber of the refrigerator. He
glimpsed a moving figure in there
heard a faint rustling. Thrusting his
hand into the Inside of his coat, he was
about to take out the precious papers
to pass them in to her.
Then he received a violent push
from behind. He plunged forward,

Prisoners in the Dark.
Orme's hand still held her skirt.
"Girl!" he whispered.
"Yes. Are you hurt?"
Her voice came to him softly with
all its solicitude and sympathy. She
knelt, to help him if need be, her
warm, supple hand rested gently on
his fflrehead. He could have remained
for a long time as he was, content with
her touch, but his good sense told him
that their safety demanded action.
"Xot hurt at all," he said, and as
she withdrew her hand, he arose. "Al
catrante caught me off guard," he ex
plained. "Yes, 1 saw him. There wasn't time
to warn you."
"He has been dogging me for an
hour," Orme continued. "I felt as
though he were sitting on my shoul
ders, like an Old Man of the Sea."
"I know him of old." she replied.
"He is never to be trusted."
"But you how did you happen to be

"In the hope of finding you."

The chamber was about ten feet
'square, and lined smoothly with white
tiling. It was designed to show the
sanitary construction of the Walling
ham refrigerator. Orme remembered
how Tom had explained it all to him
on a previous visit to Chicago.
This was merely a storage chamber.
There was no connection with an ice
chamber, and there were none of the
hooks and shelves which would make
it complete for its purpose. The only
appliance was the thermometer, the
coils of which were fitted in flush with
the tiling, near the door, and protected
by a close metal grating. As for the
door itself. Its outline was a fine seam.
There was a handle.
As the match burned close to his
fingers, Orme pulled out his watch. It
was twenty-nine minutes past five.
Orme groped his way to the door and
tugged at the handle. The door would
not open; built with air-tight nicety,

This was what Orme bad expected.

prisoner that all the lights were out

Then he would depart, exulting that
the papers could not be delivered; ami

chamber was air-tight? Surely he had
not known that the girl was already
there. The air that might barely suf

would not sufTiee for two.
There was not the least opening to
admit of ventilation. Even the places
where, in a practical refrigerator, con

matter, they were on that side of the
chamber whicli was built close into the
corner of the office.
