ns n (Irnnin, amazing, fascinating as
i hough she were watching it from a
i In-liter box.
A S I liuo intimated, the spy-servico
of Oermany is admirably organized
and its "I'learing-hou1" in Mrussols
works with line precision. The KngliHh
feerice is no less complete and is imite as
far-reaching. It has to do with all the
Ureal powers Uussia, llcriiiany, France,
Austria, Italy though, of couVm', in the
pieseiit political situation it is concerned
chielly with its (ierman rival. Its chief
is a detective who lives in Hrussels and
nlio passes himself oil as a newspaper
correspondent as such he is even ac
ciedited to the Hritish embassy. (All
Iheso spies are fond of calling themselves
''journalists," which is not at all amus
ing for professional newspaper writers.)
The Austrian spy-service is merely a pale
shadow of the (ierman; indeed the work
of Austria's spies is chielly in her own
states and in Knstern Europe.
The. Russian service in Hrusels is im
portant and is directed mainly against
(iermany. At times, however, the Urns
sels agents are called upon to net against
Ihe Russian levoliitionnries, who swarni
about the lake of lieneva at Ouchy,
Lausanne, Montreux, and in (ienevn it
self. Thus a few years ago the chief
of the French spies in Hrussels lent to
his Russian emifrtrc a clever woman who
is now in jail under the name possibly
n true one of Therese Provost. With
a young man who posed as her brother,
t'luirles Provost, she was sent to Switzer
land to run down certain Russian fugi
Hm's and conspirators. It was a change
I'toni the ups-nnd-downs of military es
pionage and she set out gaily.
These were her instructions. She was
to go to Montreux and pose ns a young
Canadian heiress. She was to make the
niiuaiutiiiicc of the clan of revolution
aries, notably of the chief, an old rebel,
nolucholl'sky, who had a son twenty-two
years of age. At the railway station in
Itrussels a lady she had never seen
her before gave her five thousand
francs and wished her good-luck. And
she nnd her "brother" reached Lau
sanne, reached Montreux. The Cana
dian heiress made a social hit. One of
her first proposals of marriage came
from the son of the hungry old revolu
lionist, nnd she accepted him. Hy that
t into she knew a great deal of what these
exiles were plottiug.
But whnt she had been sent to dis
cover was their identity nud the names
they were, using. (Her plan is spoken
of with reverent admiration in tho spy
world of Eurox) She and her
"brother" Charles invited the family
and friends of her Russian fiance to a
pre-nuptinl luncheon. It was gien in
the banquet room of the hotel and The
rese had sent out invitations to all the
revolutionary cohort; and as it was dif
ficult for her to spell their exotic names,
sho persuaded her husband-to-be to write
out the list of guests. At dessert bhe
announced gaily that she had a surprise
for them all. She had engaged the liost
photographer of Lausanne to take a
group-picturo of them all, in commemo
ration of the day. The guests looked
askance. Sho turned to the photographer
"You will print three dozen copies
nnd deliver them all to dear Mr. (lolu
to lie my father
give one to each
choffsky, who is soon
in-law. And he will
ol us. '
And quite reassuted the guests filed
out into the sunny garden of the hotel
and posed. Within two hours proofs of
the photograph and the list drawn up
by the "fiance" were in the hands of
the Russian agents in ienea. And
Therese -and her brother were on their
way back to Hrussels. A charming ex
cursion; it had broken the monotony of
military and political espionage
After the Savoy and the Drill Room
are closed when all the bars are shut
down there is still one place in Hrus
sels where the night-folk go, be thin
criminals, apaches, wasters, gamblers,
or simply bad-husbands. It is a sort of
boutjr, a tavern kept open officially for
the use of cab-drivers and chaull'eurs.
It was here, over a table on which wen
dishes of sauerkraut and five glasses of
beer, that "brother" Charles related,
in a husky, amused half-tone, his ad
venture with Therese in the Russ
haunted "resort" of Territet-Montreux.
At a table a dozen feet away u fat Brit
isher who should have been at home and
abed five hours ngone, was playing cards
with a fox-faced American, who once
had some obscure connect ion with the
American ministry in Hrussels- and
since then leads an existence more nns
terious than the lines in the palm of
your hand. Out of-doors a winter dawn,
humid nnd gray, should have been nun
ing up over Hrabaut. As we sat there
(Charles shaking dice against his left
hand on behalf of his right, lest he
get out of practice; for most spies are
gamblers as well) there came in a blind
man led by a little girl. Slung at hi
side ho hail a huge bundle of papers
Belgian, French, English, German, Ital
inn, Dutch, Scandinavian and by some
deftness of touch or fine quality of ar
rangement he never deceived himself in
pulling out exactly the paKr or review
that one asked for. Notable figures
these in Hrussels the blind man with
his drooping mustache and pricked up
ears; the thin pathetic girl in black on
whose shoulders he leans for guidance;
and the spies and gambler-spies with
whom I sat at table, amused themselves
by trying to confuse the old man
clamoring at him for newspapers in all
Un vrai zwanze Bruxcllois quo!?
MOT being a humorist of this sort, 1
lightened the blind man's load of il
lustrated journals that cost as much as
twelve and fifteen cents apiece, and I
was looking at a picture in Simplicts
simux which depicted a green lady nine
feet high, staring down (with horror!)
into a chasm three feet deep, when
Charles swore. Being a Frenchman, and
a Parisian at that, he sworo softly a
long, low ripple of oaths through which
cows and camels ami zebras and other
animals went wickedly. He was read
ing (while he swore) the Etoile Beige
of that day January 23. Huskily to
his elbow-mate he said: "They've got
Winter at Nice both Winter and
"And Wesself" his neighbor asked.
Charles studied the Etoile Beige.
"It is a telegram from their specinl
correspondent at Nice so it happened
yesterday. Otto Winter, nged forty-two,
born at Breslau he's arrested. And
they got Horstmann of Amsterdam.
Their chief lias escaped."
"That is Weasel!"
"Of course," said Charles, "and the
paper says: 'Weasel, officer, deserter
from the German army, who lias been
implicated in many affairs of espionage
in tho last few years, is believed to have
succeeded in crossiug the Italian fron
One of the English agents spoke; lie
said: "Good old Wessel! "
Then Charles: "If he got to Venti
tnille, he's all right. He'll come up by
the Milan express and we'll see him in
a few days."
A squat little man, dark and sullen,
had been nervously fumbling the dice
laid aside bv Charles. He was Louis
