Kow enter Dr. Crow. a, distant relative f Jeffreys', .but. more Important still, friend and physician to the very wealthy and try eccentric Miss Meredith. Dr. Crow brings Jeffrey a commission. It Is the photograph of Claire Meredith, niece f 'the -wealthy woman a girl who had died. supposedly two ears before during a smallpox epidemic In the French capl- tal. It b the face of the choat-glrll 'New there Is found frozen In the Ice the body of a beautiful girl In her early twenties, magnificently dressed and bear ing no trace of the causes that might have brought ber to ber tragic end. That is en fact. Here Is another: Jeffrey returns to his studio to And his new portrait of Miss Meredith has been stolen. He calls In tbe police, notably Lieutenant Rich ards. The lieutenant finally rescues the - portrait, somewhat disfigured, from the sands of some notorious spiritualists. He catches the artist restore the work to Its -.jforsaer state, and then exclaims: "Why, 'that's tbe picture of the girl they found In the Ice!" - CHAPTER XV. A Night Ride. ALL he waited for was my some vv hat dubious nod of assent. Al ready he was In my desk chair, and by unhooking the telephone receiver he cut short the flood of oucs- tlons I'd have overwhelmed him with If he d Riven me the chance. "There's a taxi stand on the corner. Isn't there? That'll be quicker than phonic? for one. Do you mind set tine; HT" I answered by catching up try; coat and hat "While you're at the phone, though." said I, "do you mind calline my house and telling Jack or Gwendo lyn that I shan't be home tonight. Luckily Madeline's away." "That's a good notion. Drew." He spoke as though it were a particularly shrewd Idea, and not in tHe least satrically. either. Evidently it had suggested something to him so in stantaneously that he thought the sug gestion Itself had come from me. He often did thaL I wondered what the "ldea'was. but he waved me away, so I rushed out after the taxi ami left him to arrange matters his own way. When I came back with the cab. I 3und him waiting at the curb. That surprised me, because I bad got the idea that secrecy was to be part of the program. If any one were on the watch it would be easy enough to see us start ing off together, at any rate Just as Jeffrey took his seat beside me another taxi came up behind, -rather slowly, as if waiting to see what we wanted of the road before It tried to pas. Jeffrey- glanced back at it and then called an address to our own chauffeur. The address was that of my own house uptown! In a moment I thought I had the idea. The taxi behind meant to follow us and Jeffrey had called out that address to throw them off the trail. Our Chauffeur, with a warning ges ture to the car behind, pulled out into the road and turned around, the other taxi checking up at the curb to give us room. The occupant of It was in Insignificant-looking oung man. who gave you an impression of flashlness nd shabbiness alt at the same time He dln'L look at us at all. seemed to be looking along for a street number. His tail was still Jogging along close to the curb when we turned the corner. "We needn't have taken so much trouble to mislead him after all," said J. "I thought for an instant he was a elective, and so. evidently did you. X'hat address did you really want to to tor 'That's the right address for your house. Isn't It?" "What are we going to my house for?" I demanded "Why.- said Jeffrey. "I thought that was your own idea? But it doesn't matter which of us thought of It," he went on as I started to protesL "It's the right place for us to go." At that the light went out of his eyes and he leaned back limply against the cushions, so completely absorbed In the train of thought that was occupying him that I hadn't the heart for any more questions. The taxi was cnugging along, not to very fasL and I, with the need for haste that Jeffrey had impressod upon me strongly In mind, reached for the speak ing tube and was about to tell the chauffeur to spped up a little, when Jeffrey took It away from me and shook his head. "No- hurry." he said "He's going fast -enough." So by the time we had pulled up at rnj own door. I was pretty completely mystified. There was another car standing there, and when we got near enough. I recog nized It as Jack's big limousine. Evi dently he and 'Gwendolyn were going out somewhere, for the door opened Just as onr car stopped and they came down the stps. -"Shalr we want the taxi again, Jeff rey?" I asked. "Xo," he said. "We're through with him." So I turned to pay the driver. Jeffrey lounged out of the cab, and at sight of him. Gwendolyn and Jack both ex claimed their pleasure at the meeting. I got my change back from the driver of the taxi and then. Just as I was turning away to Join the group. I saw another taxi round the corner. It might have been fancy, but I thought I recog nized It for the same car that had come up behind us Just as we were leaving mv office. We had been followed, then. after all. The car was Jogging along In no greater hurry than we seemed to be in ourselves. "What are you people going to do with j ourselves?" asked Gwendolyn as we came up. "Why, I don't know." said- Jeffrey. "We've nothing In particular to do. Why?" "Then come along and dine with us." said .Jack. jWe're going down to dine at, one 'of. the restaurants." "Vou people are dressed," said Jeff rey, ."and wo aren't.". , ,' "Oh?" said Gwendolyn, ""what does thatmatter?. We'll go where you won't mind"." " "All the while the other taxi had been drawing closer. Just as it came op posite ns Jeffrey saw: "We'll-'have to-run away afterward. We've an engagement 'for the end of the evening." 'Let's waste no time beginning it then," said Jack, and ho" caught Jef frey by the arm and began" pushing him toward the car. "All right," said Jeffrey. I followed without a word. The other taxi had gone by. still rather slowly. Our car started off with a Jump the minute the door was shut behind me. Evidently the chauffeur had been told what to do. At the corner we turned to the right, which was natural enougn If one wanted to follow the avenue downtown. But at the first corner we whipped around to the right again and in a minute were flylnsr alone-t on the high spefa" northward. We timed that pretty well. I think." said Gwendolyn. "I never dressed so fast In my life and I'm sure the hooks up my back are Just -caught Into any thing. But It certainly went as smooth ly as If It had been rehearsed. I was so afraid I wouldn't be able to say Lafayette at the right time. But he did hear. I'm sure." She turned and peered out of the little back wlndoiv. "And he isn't following." "Oh! It worked." said Jeffrey, "like a charm. Even when we don't turn up at the Lafayette he won't know that we haven't changed our minds and gone to some other restaurant." "An awful clever Idea," said Gwen dolyn. "Drew thought of it," said Jeffrey. "All I thought of." said I. "was to ask Jeffrey to telephone ou that I shouldn't bp home tonight. Whenever I've tried to ask him any questions since, about what all these maneuvers meant, he's told me It was my own idea. But I've only Just got It through my head what it's all about. Did Jef frey also tell you?" I concluded, "where we were going and what we are going to do, and did he tell you that this was my idea, too?" "He only told us." said Gwendolyn, "that you were going to burgle Beech Hill" I don't believe an professional ever spoke of cracking a crib more casutl ly than Gwendolyn did "I think I've got evcrj thing .vou need In here." she said "cverj thing you spoke of. and I have put in an extra suit of clothes of Cliff's and one of Jack's for you. It ought to fit pretty well, I think. And then. If any thing happens, if your looks get dam aged or anything, the fresh clothes will be much more respectable." "Bully for you," Jeffrey said "Vou know you people are a pair of trumps to turn in and help us out this waj. We're making criminals of you. too Accessories before the fact' That s the term. Isn't it. Drew?" "We're going to be ever so much more 'accessory than you think," said Gwendolyn. "We're going all the way to Oldsborough. Oh! Jack saj s it's all right," she went on in answer to my movement of protest. "What's the sense of our getting off at the ferry and going back when we can Just as well go all the way and see the fun'" "I don't doubt if it turns out to br precisely a picnic," said Jeffrey serl ousls "I don't see exactly how we're Recovered From Severe Lung Trouble Plenty of fresh air and good food ar3 necessary to persons suffering from lung trouble, but something more is needed to bring about full health.

What are you going to do with the car while you're burgling? Tou can't go chugging right up the driveway in It. If you leave it beside the road somewhere, it will attract as much attention as an elephant.

If you send the car home without you, then jou'll have to take a train or the day boat, and that may turn out to be awkward, too." "You've got the difficulties down cold," said Jeffrey, "but I'm hoping tl-at the spur of the moment will sup ply us with something."
