Into empty streets; watching, walling for
ii human memory that can span tlmo
back to their lost days of towering Im
portance. At night tholr.gloomy, creaky,
gas-lit stairs nre almost ghostly, and one
enn fancy hearing the patter of hundreds
of spirit steps; old tenants returned to
comfort the crumbling shells of build
ings. Built of brick nnd red standstonc, the
Exchange was one of the old ofllee build
ings, of tho city; an architectural ex
pression of the pait, loented on 3d street,
south of Chestnut, It was kept clean
nnd well-mended and had received ns
many nnd dKersc coats of paint as the
cheek of a 20th century grandmother.
Around about were tho landmarks of
American history: Independence Hall,
and Liberty Bell, the nation's patriotic
shrine; Carpenters' Hall, where tho First
Continental Congress met In 1774 ; Christ
Church cemetery, burial place of Ben

Shortly beforo midnight of the day
tho Montgomery Iron Works were

secret service, with Craig Andrews, the
lawjer, and his promising young client,

way of the Exchange to tho second floor.
A night watchman In tho entrance hall
had been told to guard a rear oxlt.
In the Inky darkness of tho wide hall

toward Room 19. They moved Ilko
shadows, so silent wero they.
"Don't show a light," hoarsely said
tho Government man, ns ho pushed pnst
Monte. "Wo are dealing with desperato
persons. Wnlt hero until I signal."
Ho left them at an angle In tho hall,
and tho soft crunch of his rapid foot
fall grew fainter and falter as ho pro
gressed toward a door over which a feeble
yellow glow showed from a closed tran
som. "Think of these plotting foreigners
daring to lent an office In this fine old
district," whispered Monto to Andrews.
