"That's a good notion. Drew." He
spoke as though it were a particularly

3und him waiting at the curb. That
surprised me, because I bad got the
idea that secrecy was to be part of the
program. If any one were on the watch
it would be easy enough to see us start
ing off together, at any rate Just as
Jeffrey took his seat beside me another
taxi came up behind, -rather slowly, as
if waiting to see what we wanted of
the road before It tried to pas.
Jeffrey- glanced back at it and then
called an address to our own chauffeur.
The address was that of my own house
In a moment I thought I had the idea.
The taxi behind meant to follow us and
Jeffrey had called out that address
to throw them off the trail.
Our Chauffeur, with a warning ges
ture to the car behind, pulled out into
the road and turned around, the other
taxi checking up at the curb to give us
room. The occupant of It was in Insignificant-looking

He dln'L look at us at all. seemed to be

tail was still Jogging along close to the
curb when we turned the corner.
"We needn't have taken so much
trouble to mislead him after all," said
J. "I thought for an instant he was a
elective, and so. evidently did you.
X'hat address did you really want to
'That's the right address for your
house. Isn't It?"
"What are we going to my house
for?" I demanded
"Why.- said Jeffrey. "I thought that
was your own idea? But it doesn't
matter which of us thought of It," he
went on as I started to protesL "It's
the right place for us to go."
At that the light went out of his eyes
and he leaned back limply against the
cushions, so completely absorbed In the
train of thought that was occupying
him that I hadn't the heart for any
The taxi was cnugging along, not to

said Gwendolyn. "I never dressed so

"Oh! It worked." said Jeffrey, "like

at the Lafayette he won't know that we
haven't changed our minds and gone to
some other restaurant."
"An awful clever Idea," said Gwen

"All I thought of." said I. "was to
