When you appeared at this houBO I
assisted hla escape."
"But, Claire, how camo you here?
Why did you loavo Philadelphia?"
"Because I have a brother, sir, whom
I can only meet in secret," sho replied
quietly. "I camo without thought of
danger, for war has not cost Us friends
in this country; our homo has re

knelt at tho sido of his chair, her
head bowed upon his arm, and his
hand stroked her hair. "I regret if I

It has all seemed right to mo."
Tho colonel looked at us silently for
what seemed a long while, his fingers
fondling tho tresses of tho girl's hnlr.
"This situation leaves mo In an cm
bnrrnsslng predicament," ho admitted
at last slowly. "I hardly know what Is

He paused, rising to his feet, his eyes
on my faco. Tho girl lifted her head,
looking up at him.

for my benefit.
"No doubt, sir," returned Mortimer
coldly. "But I have nlready selected
Mr. Seldon for that duty."
They left tho houso together, nnd I
watched them ride past tho window,
