Helen Graham turned after putting
up her small sign on tho wall of an
American rendezvous in London and
spoko to tho man behind window D.
"Now, Mr. Gray, you will bo suro to
send Bomo very nice Americans to me,
won't you? I am trusting entirely to
your selection." The over ready

lips and eyes.

wobbling stairs of a Kensington 'bus.
In tho meantime Margery Bonner
walked leisurely along the Uaymarkct
toward tho rendezvous. Her erect
back and trim, artistic costume pro

And Hugh Gray, tho man behind
window D, was waiting for Margery

Thanksgiving dinner. She had been

going to ask you about this," sbo Bald
pointing to Mrs. Graham's invitation.
Robert Dexter swung In from tho

American eyes seeing everything with

over ber letters, Margery Bonner's
heart gave a little Jump when some

admired his clear cut linos and the
honest look In his eyes.
The girl approached window D
again. "Toll me," she askod, "If you
know anything about the person

Tho Englishman smiled his approv

"A very charming little woman," he
said qutckly. "A Mrs. Graham. She

Dexter was embarrassed, ho was un

The clerk saw his predicament He
smiled his knowledge of Doxtcr's de
iro. In the American thero suddenly
was born a great liking for all En
glishmen. "She Is a Miss Bonner," Gray said
without waiting for bo question.
When Dexter left the Amorlcan
rendezvous, bo had Mrs. Graham's ad

down a certain notlco which ended his

On tho last Thursday In November
a taxicab whirled to the curb of a
beautiful llttlo homo on St Mary's
road, Margery Bonnor stepped out In
tho dnlntlest of gray chiffon tollottos.
Sho carried a huge bunch of roses sus
piciously like American beauties and a
small squaro package.
"I received your note, Miss Bonner,"
said Mrs. Graham as she led the way
upstairs and Into ber own boudoir. In
her heart she thanked Mr. Gray for
his excellent ebolce. "And wo are go
ing to be even moro unconventional
and use first names," she went on
quickly In order to hide any sense of
strain. "I don't want Mr. Doxter, a
friend of my husband, to know "
"You are a dear to think of that,"
burst out Margery, "and I am glad I

"I haven't seen any of this for six

bell and tho maid appeared presently
with somo long-handled corn poppers.
There was a choky sensation In the
throats nf nil four when these little
Implements of American life appeared,
and they had tuo effect of breaking
tho last barrier of convention existing
among tho now mado friend.
"The sport is rustic," cried Helen,
falling on her knees beforo tho lire,
"but I love It!"
"And these fires aro Ideal, for pop

Bob Dexter looked at the trio of
happy faces In the glow of the firo;
tho yellow corn was puffing Into fluffy
balls and tho fmgranco of fresh
roasted corn permeated the room. The
plcturo stamped Itself Indelibly on
Doxtcr's mind, especially the profile of
the girl bcsldo him. Her delicate face
was clear cut llko a cameo among tho
shadows. She glanced around and
met tho unguarded look In bis eyes
and a flush' not cau&cd by the fire
mounted her cheeks. By way of cov
ering his embarrassment she handed
him her popper.

nothing pop awhile."
