not at all assumed.

her best to get a clear understanding
of the matter, though to her it was
all a mystery most esoteric.
Mary reviewed the case succinctly
for the other's enlightenment.
"Yes. it's the same game precisely,"
she affirmed. "A shameless old roue
makes love to you, and he writes
you a stack of silly letters."

Mary remained ln Joyous spirits
after her victorious matching of
brains against a lawyer of high
standing in his profession. For the
time being, conscience was muted by
gratified ambition. Her thoughts Just
Jhen were far from the miseries of
the past, with their evil train of con
sequences in the present. But that
past was soon to be recalled to her
with a vividness most? terrible.
She had entered the telephone
booth* which she had caused tto be
Installed out of an extra closet of her
bedroom for the sake of greater pri
vacy on occasion, and it was during
her absence from the drawing room
that Garson again came into the
apartment, seeking her. On being
told by Aggie as to Mary's
;abouts, he sat down to await her re-'
turn, listening without much interest
to the chatter of the adventuress.
. . . It was Just then that the maid
"There's a girl wants to see Miss
Turner," she explained.
The irrepressible Aggie put on
her most flnlcally elegant air.
"Has she a card?" she inquired,
haughtily, while tho maid tittered
"No," was the answer. "But she
says it's important. I guess the poor
thing's in hard luck, from the look of
her," the kindly Fannie added.
"Oh, then she'll be welcome, of
course," Aggie declared, and Garson
nodded in acquiescence. "T«ll her to
come in and wait. Fannie. Miss Tur

turned to Garson as the maid left the
room. "Mary sure is an easy boob,"
she remarked, cheerfully. "Bless her
A curiously gentle smile of appre
ciation softened the immobility of the
forger's face as he again nodded as
"We might Just as well pipe off the
skirt before Mary gets here," Aggie
suggested, with eagerness.
A minute later a girl perhaps 20
years of age stepped Just within the
doorway, and stood there with eyes
downcast, after one swift, furtive
glance about her. Her whole appear
ance was that of dejection. Her
soiled binck gown, the cringing post
ure, the pallor of her face proclaimed
the abject misery of her state.
Aggie, who was not exuberant in
her sympathies for any one other than
herself, addressed the newcomer with
a patronizing inflection, modulated in
her best manner.
"Won't you come in, pleas??" she
The shrinking girl shot another
veiled look in the direction of the
"Are you Miss Turner?" she asked ln
a voice broken by nervous dismay.
"Really, I am very sorry." Aggie re
plied, primly; "but I am only her

"Certainly," Aggie answered, hospi

As the girl obediently sank down on
the nearest chair, Gar»on addressed
her sharply, so that the visitor started
uneasily at the unexpected sound.
"You don't know Miss Turner?"
">>'o." came the faint reply.
"Then, what do you want to see her
There was a brief pause before the
girl could plmk up courage enough

"You thought she might help you,"
But Aggie, too, possessed some per

she preferred to use them little in
"You have been in stir—prison, I
mean." She hastily corrected the
lapse into underworld slang.
Came a distressed muttering of as

"How sad!" Aggie remarked, in a
voice of shocked pity for one so incon

was put to an end by the entrance of

limp figure huddled in the chair.
"A visitor, Agnes?" she inquired.
At the sound of her voice and be

elegant form of reply, the girl looked
up. And now, for the first time, she
spoke with some degree of energy,
albeit there was a sinister undertone
in the husky voice.
"You're Miss Turner?" she ques
"Yes," Mary said, simply. Her
words rang- kindly; and she smiled
A gasp burst from the white lips
of the girl, and she cowered as one
"Mary Turner! Oh, my God! I—"
She hid her face within her arms and
sat bent until her head jested on iter
knees in an abasement of misery.
Vaguely startled by the hysterical
outburst from the girl, Mary's imme

pitiful instance of one suffering from

The girl in the chair was shaking
soundlessly under the stress of her
emotions. A few disjointed phrases
fell from her quivering lips.
"I didn't know —oh, I couldn't."
"Don't try to talk just now." Mary
warned, reassuringly. "Wait until
you've had something to eat."
Aggie, who had observed develop
ments closely, now lifted her voice in
tardy lamentations over her own stu
pidity. There was r.o affectation of
the fine lady in her self-reproach.
"Why, the poor gawk's hungry!"

Mary was at her desk, giving part
of her attention to-' Joe Garson, who
sat near, and part to a rather for
midable pile of neatly arranged pa

who, though still shambling of gait
and stooping, showed by some faint

steadiness of bearing that the food
had already strengthened her much.
"She would come," Aggie explained.

"I don't have to ask if you have

"Your face shows it."
"I—l came out —three months ago,"
was the halting admission.
Mary watched the shrinking figure
reflectively for a long minute before
she spoke again. Then there was a
deeper resonance in her voice.
"And you'd made up your mind to
"Yes." The word was a whisper.
"You were going to do what the
chaplain had told you," Mary went on
in a voice vibrant with varied emo

still lower in assent. There came a
cynical note Into Mary's utterance
