legacy will go to a third cusin in Amer
ica. The story opens at Castle vTyckoff.
where Lord Vincent and his wife, friends
of Terhune, are discussing plans to find

persons named Agatha, all close girlhood

"Our marriage," I corrected.
"Naturally." she said indulgently
and laughed. "But I 've always ad
mired ker," SEO went on; "she's so
big and strong and has such tre
mendous vital force. I'm a little sur
prised, thct any one of such an o^n
character could develop . into such a
plotter.. It's all so frightfully under
hand somehow. Why can't she come
and tell me frankly arl about it.

"Perhaps Mrs. Chiltern could throw

istayed much longer with her than
?Agatha Sixth' did. I shall telephone
?her in the morning. What a smart
little hoy it is, to be sure, to think of
?that!" And I was more than paid
for my happy thought by a pair of
exquisite arms about my neck.
"I wonder what they'll have to say
rjfdr themselves when they come In?"
I said as we were going down to the
jdrawin?;-room a ?ttle lajer.
"O, t'?ey won't rome in together,"
said my wife; "that would be too
fmuch of a give away." And just then i
we perceived Agatha First standing
at the foot of the stair-caso waiting
for us. She was alone, as Dearest
had prophesied she would be.
"Hello!" she greeted us composed

there, I thought such cheek deserved
"Ripplfi!" I ?aid, before Dearest
could answer. "But where have you
been? I thought you were supposed
to be on the sick Hst today." But
she didn't seem ii. :>it embarrassed. "I
[was," she replied. "I didn't really
feel like going way over to North
Jbury with you, but I thought a little
outing would do my head good, so,I
.went for a - stroll."
"I see!" I said, and thought with

dear; I'm glad you felt like going.
?Run along now and get ready for
jdinner. It's almost eight."
. It was what we called between our
jselves "The Incident of the Checked
Coat" that really decided my wife
to consult Mrs. Chiltern about Aga- j
tha First's strange behavior.

planned to take our guests to see

atheticalJy Upon St.
, Dearest had been delayed with
making arrangements for our picnic,
and the others, the inevitable Freer,
Arch and the two Agathas, had start
ed slowly on ahead.
We could hear thoir voices in the
gardens below our windows as she
hurriedly got into some walking
things. I had of course waited for

Dearest was all ready and waiting
when I came down again, but I didn't
need to speak to inform her ^hat
something had happened. She saw it
by my face.
"What is it, Wilfred?" she asked.
"You look as if you'd seen a ghost!"
"I have!" I answered, "or some
thing quite as startling! I say.
Agatha, wk?.t do you think I lound in
old Arch's closet?"
"Your hat, just as I told you you
would! What else?" But I knew she
knew I didn't mean that.
"Why, nothing moro nor less than
a loud checked automobile coat, or
duster!" I replied ' in measured
tones. "Now, what do you think of
"Not Uko the coat you saw hang
ing over the back of the machine in
the woods?" expostulated Dearest,
aghast. "Not that coat, Wilfred?"
"The very same, or its .twin broth
er," I told her. "Come, now, isn't that
a go!" But my wile was out of the
door and half way up to the third
floor by t*>rvt time.
"I've got to see!" she cried back
to me, and I went up after her, al
though I knew it wouldn't be any use
her seeing it, since she had- not seen
i the one in the automobile.
"It surely is!" she exclaimed as I
stood by her side. "A checked auto
mobile coat! Did you evor. Freddy,
did you ever!" And she held it up
and looked it over from collar to coat
tail as if it were enchanted and
could tell us more than our own eyes
''Yes," I said, "the very tame!"
"Then it must have been Terhune!"
"Beyond a doubt!" I answered
thoughtfully. "But isn't it tco queer!
In the first place I didn't know he
could handle a machine, and in the
second, where did he get it from.
"And why does he have to meet
Agatha First in secret that way?"
wondered my wife as we left the cas
tle and started for the scene of the
picnic by a series of short cuts the
others did not know.
But all our marvelling brought us
no enligktrncnt, on) ? the conclusion on
Dearest's part thr.t she would consult
Mrs. Chiltern ou the subject as soon
ac an opportunity presented itself.
We arrived at the group of ruins
which formed tho goal c*f our walk
In good time, although the others
were there ahead of us and were just
spreading a cloth and taking things
out of the automobile which had met
them there, as we came up.
"Hurry up; slow coaches!" called
Agatha First cheerily, "or we won't
leave you anything to eat!"
"Lend me a hand with this cloth,
Vincent!" was Terhune's roquet,
and I foll to with a will and hud tho
thing .-iglit in a jiffy.
And maybe lt wasn't good fun let
ting there on a lot of jolly boulders
and clumps of rock that I had col
lected with great pains and arranged
at intervals about the cloth, grinning
at each other across its goodly array
of picnic dainties. I.j> *
Dearest is^a^fgjfious hand at plan
ning* ?hat sort of thing. We. had
camped upon~a small ris;e in the rn?oV
die of u? open space where great oak
trer ^ cut. us off from eight of the road
on the one hand, and broad meadows
and wooded slopes fell away toward
Hartsmere stream on the other; the
latter streaking the green of It all
with silver a field or two away.
Close at hand the ruined chapel or
convent which we had come to see
piled itself in picturesque confusion,
and we had reached that point in our
merry-making when we were simply
content to gaze apathetically upon it
and . listen uncomprehendingly to
Freer recite its history with never
flagging accuracy and zeal.
He knows everything, that chap!
And is disgustingly ready to give
everybody else the benefit of his
learning at all times.
Agatha First was sitting near him
tho' not making any attempt to dis
guise her indifference to his pedantic
discourse, while Arch and Agatha
Sixth, I am glad to say, were carry
ing on a whispered conversation to
gether on the other side of the cloth.
Dearest and I sat together, of course,
at one end of the square, and as I
said to her in a low tone so that the
others could not hear I thought Arch
was playing up to the part she and I
had selected for him, that of Agatha
Sixth's lover, a little belter than us
ual. He was certainly all attention
to the girl at his sido and listened to
her every word with the eager inter
est of the most devoted suitor. And
the delicate face of Mis.s Lawrence
was alive with feeling and glowed
pink even without the aid of the rose
colored parasol she carried.
"0, what do you think!" she cried
Li her soft, cultivated vci::e, "Mr. Ter
hune says that the ruins z.rc haunted!

frock and tho fictitious aureole of

couldn't swallow a br.re-faccd whop
per like.that, for teat nun story is
so old. So I had just begnn to ex

entirely, when I caught his expres
sion and my wifo's eye. The former
was embarrassed and thc latter se
vere, and I stopped in thr, middle of
a sentence as I fathomed tho com
bined significance of cyo and look.
"So that's it, is lt?" I thought to
myseif. "Foor old boy! He's so
much in lore ho doesn't know what
he's saying. Anything will do as ?CUR
as she will listen! And I'm deuced
glad to see it, too!"
But Freer showed loss perspicacity,
thnnt-h nf COlirsO 'there':; thic t? H??
however, for all his learning Freer
did not win a smilo from Agatha
Sixth, who only turned to Teri . .e
with more interest then ever as a
result of his efforts.
. It was then that Dearest ruade her
remark about motoring- over to ceo ?
Mrs. Chiltern en thc fellowing dsy.
It was au innocent enough remark
and very casually said, but it seed
ed to have an electrifying effect upc:i
Agatha First. She jumped up and
came over to ny wife.
"Don't do that!" she said, low and \
earnestly; "please don't. Agatha,
dear!" Dearest was surprised, and,
by Jove, so was I. or puzzled, at
least! The girl seemed so awfully
earnest about not wishing us to seo
Mrs. Chiltern-out of all propoiUon
to the importance of her request, lt
seemed to me. ."But why not?" my
wife couldn't help asking.
"Becauso we have such a little time
left to be together, you and Lord
Vincent and Mr. Tern une and Agatha
Sixth and myself," she said. "Mr.
Terhune tells me he has tc go bael;
to London In a day or two. and I
think it's a shame to waste a whole
day by going over to Chiltern house'
Besides, you said they owed you s
call!"- She had lowered her voice
during this last statement, but it was
not necessary. Freer had strolled off
to the ruins and Archibald nd Agctna
Sixth wero too absorbed in each oth
er's company to notice us.
Her reasor.s were speciour. arid Il
logical enough, but Dearest, to' my :
surprise, seemed ine'ined to accept j
th-sm and I had to interfere.
"The? do owe us a call," I said, i
"but that wouldn't prevent us from J
having a jolly time of it if we all
chose to go over together! On the

Then Agatha First, evidently goad

in a fashion that was almost desper

told me she was going down to Lon
don for a woek or two,!"
Dearest stared at her, but she did
not ask her. as I wanted to do, why
she hadn't said so in the rim place. !
Instead she took pity cn' Agatha
First's white face, for the girl had
actually turned pale, and assured her
charitably that sho had entirely given I
up all thought of an expedition to
Chiltern house, though, as I told her
afterward, obviously tho young lady
was cramming her. But Dearest has
the kindest heart in the world.
