I've forgotten how to act,"
"1 believe that. We've been in here
for flvp minutes and you haven't told
me that you love me."
"Good heavens!" And his armB
went around her so tightly that she
begged for quarter.
"How strong you are!"
The splendor of the rooms, the daz
zling array of jewels, the kaleidoscopic
colors, the perfume of the banked
flowers and the music all combined
to put Florence into a pleasurable
kind of trance. And it was only when
the first waltz began that she became
mandeered a cab, and flew out to Riv-
erdale. And when Jones came to tho
I door he was staggering with sleep.
1 "What's the matter with you?" de
manded Jim roughly. "Where's Flor
ence?" "Isn't she with you?" cried Jones,
making an effort to dispel the drowsl
, liess. "What time Is it?" suddenly.
I "Midnight! Where is she?"
I "Midnight? I've been drugged!"
' Without a word Jones staggered off
to the kitchens, Jim at his heels.
! There was always hot water, and
within five minutes Jones had drunk
' two cups of raw strong coffee
i "Drugged!" he murmured. "Some

And they were wnltzing over a vol- I B"t the chauffeur swore on his oath
cano. She knew and he knew it. i that he had left Jim and Florence on
From what direction would the blow
come? Well, they were prepared for
all manner of tricks.
In an alcove off the ballroom sat
Braine and Olga, both dressed exactly
like Newton and Florence. Another
man and woman entered presently
and Brr.ine spoke to them for a mo
ment, as if giving instructions, which
was indeed the case.
The band crashed into another
dance, and the masqueraders began
swirling hither and thither and yon.
A gay cavalier suddenly stopped in
front of Florence.
"Enchantress, may I have the pleas
ure of this dance?"
Jim touched Florence's hand. But
she turned laughingly toward the
stranger. What difference did it
make? The man would never know
who she was nor would she know
him. It was a lark, that was all;
and despite Jim's warning touch she

j "Get in!" said Jones to Norton, now
fully alive He could not get it out of
his head that some one In tho house
had drugged him.
I The events which followed were to
both Jones and Norton something like
t a series of nightmares In the new
home of the Princess Parlova a bomb
I exploded and fire followed the explo
sion. From pleasure to terror is only
' a step. The wildest confusion imag
inable ensued. Most of the guests
were of the opinion that some an
i archist had attempted to blow up the
house of the rich Pole. Jones and
Norton arrived just as the smoke be
gan to pour out from the windows A
, crowd had already collected.
i Then Jim overheard a woman mas-
I querader say: "The fool made the
bomb too strong. She is in the room
on the second floor. The game is up
if she suffocates " The voice
1 trailed off and the woman became lost
in the crowd. 13ut it was enough tor

was up and away like the mischievous
sprite that she was. Jim remained
in his chair, twisting his fingers and
wondering whether to laugh or grow
angry. After all, he could not blame
her. To him an affair like this was an
ancient story; to her it was the door
of fairyland swung open. Let her en
Florence was having a splendid
time. Her partner was asking all sorts
of questions and she was replying in
kind, when out of the crowd came I
Norton (as she supposed), who touched 1
her arm. The cavalier stopped, bowed '
and made off.
Norton whispered: "I have made an
important discovery. We must be off
at once Come with me." '
Florence, without the leaBt suspicion ,
in the world, followed him up the
broad staircase. What with the many
sounds it was not to be wondered at
that the difference in the quality of
voices did not strike Florence's ear
as odd. The result of her confidence
was that upon reaching the upper
halls, opposite the dressing rooms, she
was suddenly thrust into a room and
made prisoner. When the light was
turned up she recognized with horror
the woman who had helped to kidnap
her and take her away on the George
Washington weeks ago. She could not
have cried out for help il she bad
Meantime Jim got up and began to
wander about in search of Florence.
Braine played a clever game that
night He and the Russian, still dom
inoed like Norton and Florence, or
dered the Hargreave auto, by num
ber, entered it and were driven up to
the porte cochere of the Hargreave
house. The two alighted, the chauf
feur sent the car toward the garage,
and Braine and his companion ran
lightly down the path to the street
where the cab which bad followed
picked them up.
It grew more and more evident to
Jim that something untoward had
taken place. He could not find Flor
ence anywhere, in the alcoves, in the
side rooms, the supper or card room.
Later, to his utter amazement, he was
'informed that the Hargreave auto had
some time since been called and Its
owner taken home. Some one bad
taken his place!
