have named Malhilde Haitmler. She is
a handsome, blue eyed woman, with
tin' look of a Slav rather than of a tier 1
man. She was bom in Kolnigsberg. Her
parents were Pintcslnut folk of good
standing. She was educated in n teach i
er's college, and went out into the woild
as governess in the family of a Pius
sian general. She was voting then -twenty

hands of Kit-hard do ('tiers, the Napoleun
of Spies. He it was who trained her.
Like all the women who surreed as spies
she had a natural taste for inlriguc
the love of adventuie; she was fund
of riot and ext rnvngnuce ami of the
admiration of men. Ten years ago I
met her in an opera-box at the Moiiimir
in Hrtissels; she shiuuueied with opals
from her sbppeis to her hair. And she
had charm. A woiu and wicked woman
she still indintcd charm that liiiratinv
kind of fascination which eapttlies a
certain kind of uiiprnisevvorthy man. The
man who was under her spell nt'thnl
lime was V.esscl. Indeed, she had just
been married to him; but thai was a
passing sentiment and had nothing to
.lo with her business in this world,
i Wessel had been a lieutenant of engi
neers in the (ieiiiian iiriny. She was
winking for Franco at the time ehielly
for .lumps who was then prominent in
the "service" anil she succeeded in
corrupting the young (iermau ollicer, who
turned over to her all the military docn
uients upon which he could lay his hands.
Meanwhile, Wessel, unsuspected, was
made a captain. Hut Mutliilile was an
expensive acquaintance, anil in mi en

good ollices of Mutliilile, he managed to
yet across the frontier. Together they
went to Brussels and thence, to the sum

Wessel lost heavily. One night he gave
i false clieiue to a " Herman army of
fleer." He was arrested and locked up
in the prison of St. (Silos. (The tier

detailed to "get" Wessel so he might
lie arrested, extradited ami made to pnv
for his treason.)

How will you pay
expenses on your trip?
It is unsafe to earry much actual money. Tourists provide themselves with
something that represents money that etui he converted into money, or used
instead of money, for their daily expenses. The safest, most convenient
travel funds are those which can be used directly in payment of hotel hills,
railway and steamship fares, and for purchases in the principal shops.
