If vou believe that John Camden did you this colnssial injury what do you want to find his daughter for?" Jarroman ??s fully prepared for the fiuention.

H gh up in the stately house In Ornish terrace was a small and jieve rely businesslike room to which \; itocs rarely penetrated. It held ;? ?-oI| top desk. a number of filing . nets, and built into the wall, two la rue safes. The, d. fresh from his interview w r. Lord Poucester was ushered up ihis little sanctum by a silent footed Kastern servant.

"It's the Jarroman stunt, of course?** Tl-eed refused to be hurried. There is absolutely no need for ? rn,."' h.- insisted.

What exactly do you want me to do?" she asked. Theed rose. -Try to discover what his attitude is. he said. "If he does not believe Nadia to be your daughter, does he recognize her as any one else*s? If s>o. how has he recognized her. and what i? he going to do about It?" Again Claudine nodded. "It will be difficult." she said, half to herself. -I do not mind admitting it is beyond my power." said Theed. "That is why I leave it in your hands." Claudine. left alone, brooded for a long moment. Then sh? locked her desk and betook herself to her bedroom, where she Tested before the complicated toilet of the evening Never had she looked so arresting as when that evening she greeted her guests. Her dress?an inspira tion from Vienna?was the color of sn iris seen though a miat of gold. ' Across her forehead a narrow band sapphires reflected the queer ' gulden glow of her skin. "Ah. Mrs. Crayne, how delight ful to see you once more!" Claud ine smiled and extended her hand. I?ord Doucester bent over it, chat tered lightly with h*r for a moment or two. then passed into the great room' where "Ma'nispile X," Her colorless beverage within reach, sat inscrutable at the gaming table, watching, counting, her eyes pale slits in her velvet mask. Claudine dallied a little, then, picking up an enormous fan of purple feathers, she drifted in the wake of her most Important guest. "You are not playing, Lord Doucester?" Doucester turned from his con templation of the pile of banknotes. "I'm a pauper already, dear lady? a pauper." "O, I hope not!" Claudlne's mag nificent eyes flashed upon him and away again. She made a movement towards a secluded corner and he followed her. "I do hope not," she repeated as they established themselves in deep chairs set well back in the shadow of palms. "I'm in desperate straits , myself, and you've always been such ! a friend in need." Their glances met and held. Then Lord Doucester smiled faintly as if he were amused. "If I have been of any assistance to you in the past." he murmured, "you have assisted me in return most ably and thoroughly." Claudine unfurled her fan. "By my silence," she purred. "Exactly." acquiesced Doucester. He was still smiling. "Silence doesn't deteriorate in value, does it?" Claudine's laugh was like honey. "Dear Lord Doucester , you speak as if it were no longer worth?buying." I>oucester's smile deepened. "I very much doubt whether it I is," he returned amiably. Claudine's breath came a little more quickly than usual. "I am in urgent need of a thous and.' she said languidly, but the : queer green spots were glowing in 1 her eyes. "As urgently In need of ; it as you must still be of mv silence regarding the existence of?Cam den's daughter." ? Lord Doucester never flinched. "Has it never struck you," he said. S "that you would have to furnish j proofs of that existence? You would ! have, for instance, to produce the j young lady. I'p till lately you could have done so. I know." "Couldn't I do so now?" Claud 1 ine's words were like a sword thrust. ? "Possibly. Possibly. But I fancy i it would?inconvenience you. And Mr. Theed." He paused and rose, ; looking at her. "l*et me congratulate you," he said, "on the grace and beauty of? j your daughter." Without moving, Claudine watch ed his retreating figure. She said to herself: "He knows." Jarroman returned from his visit to the detective feeling well satis fied with his morning's work. During the long hours of the night he had come to the conclusion that if he could have foreseen the result of his visit to Theed's office, he ? would never have appointed a de tective to trace John Camden's ! daughter. Sooner or later, it was more than likely that Segrove would discover , the true identity of the girl who was unconsciously- posinc as Miss Jarroman. Later, it would be all to , the good. Sooner?it would upset his p'ans. He must handle Segrove | with the utmost, care. Hence his 1 visit to him. At midday he was somewhat sur prised when a note was brought to him addressed to "Miss Jarroman." The note had been delivered by hand and the writinsr was unknown to him. Continued Tomorrow HOROSCOPE li I' WKDNF.HDAV, .\OY KM IIHit 15. 1922. Astrologers read tills as a lucky day. Venus and Mars dominate in i benefit- aspect, while Neptune and j the Sun are mildly adverse. Women are especially benefited by ; this planetary government, which j promises much in love and good j ! fortune. The seers foretell great business opportunities for women, among whom will develop famous flnan i ciers an^ bankers. This should be an auspicious wed ! ding day. making for united lives : of constant progress and develop j ment. Actors and actresses should make ! the most of this day's opportuni- j | ties, which should offer permanent J ! advantages. Forward steps taken under this j planetary rule will be most fortu nate for physicians. contractors, j . manufacturers and all who are en- 1 j gag* d in constructive work. Physicians and surgeons have a j j most encouraging sign that seems ; to forecast advancement in their j profession, large legacies to hos ' pitals and individual success. The public health, which will be ! of grave concern in midwinter, will j be greatly safeguarded through | some governmental effort. While this is a generally lucky j day, it will be well to delay seeking j ! positions or any sort of financial j j aid. since the Sun is adverse. Neptune is read as frowning on I oil production, and yet there is a! j sign making for many new discov eries of immense wells. Women are to become more beau ; tiful in the coming half century it ! is prophesied, and girls born this 1 year will have unusual possibilities! of physicar development. Persons whose birthdate It ! have the forecast of a very success- ; ful year, marked by cnange and at- j tended by great domestic felicity, j Children born on this day prob- I ably will be energetic, self-reliant j and affectionate They have the augury of health and happiness. ?
