minutes found himself the guest of
the famous airman in his biplane, in
which he was given a flight several
times. Further introductions took
place and the "prince" enjoyed after
wards the hospitality of many" titled
people. !
But later in the week, when So
ciety (with a big S) had time to
look up 'Xord Stanton Hope" and the
"crown' prince of Wurtemburg," it
was discovered tjiere are no such per
sons in existence!
Grahame-White now admits a
great hoax was played" upon him and
the English nobility in general. "But,
so far as I, personally, am concern
ed," he.added, "no harm was done
except I'm minus the fee the 'prince
should have paid me! No, we have
taken no steps to discover the two
'fakers,' nor will we. They were really
charming fellows, you know, and no
one could have detected the differ
ence between them and any sure
enough royalty!"

Chapter CXVII.
It was Harry Symone calling over
the wire telling me that Dick had
promised to come over to his house
to dinner and that he. would send a
car for ine.
After. I bad told Harry I would be
ready at six, I went back to Collie,
wondering what I should say to her.
I did n.'ot want to be a spoil sport,
neither did I want to give her the im

I presume I still had-a relic of that
old foolish idea that bur daughters
must be kept in ignorance df all the
pitfalls and temptations of life as
long as possible. We burn our com

which is only lgnoTrarfce.
Butwhen I got back to where Mol
lie was sitting, a question from her
settled matters.
"Don't you think Mr. Tenney has
beautiful eyes, Margie?" she asked.
"I never noticed them particularly,
but I am' sure if his eyes have a fine
expression it is very insincere," I an
swered shortly.
You don't like him?" exclaimed
Mollie, in surprise.
"I don't know him well enough to
like or dislike him, Mollie, but I do
know very well a girl a girl much
life because she, too, probably saw
'the light that was never on land or
sea' in Bill Tenney's eyes."
"What do you mean?s' asked Mol
lie, quickly.
"Bill Tenney, Mollie, is not free to
look into, love or interest himself hi
any girl's eyes. He is still married to
a woman who loves him, but who
has had to separate herself from him
because of his attentions to another
woman. He has ruined the reputa
tion of many girls and lately has be
come so notorious in his flirtations
than even his best friends are fight
ing shy of him. In his heart he knew
that he was compromising you by
taking you for a drive in bia motor.
He algo knew you were perfectly in
nocent of wrong intent. But his idea
of honor did not kee"p him from try
ing again to experience the exquisite
pleasure of seeing interest bud into
longings in the innocent eyes of a

the other night and introduced me to
him himself!" For which Master
Dick shall again hear from me I

world. Just a few nights before I
stopped to speak to one of the .girls
that Bill Tenney had compromised
with his attention's and Djck was
