much haggling.
Before Wilkerson had settled witl

made its landing, and the two enemies
would have met except that Wilkersoi
had to go to bank to cash a draft.
As he slipped away he saw the othei

The captain of the other boat re

pointed to the open box and the arti

"So far as I could make out," b<

heard the two of them kind of quar
reling, and the lady went off by her
■elf."
The three of them stared down al
the mementos of the long past trage
dy, and then the captain suddenly ejac
ulnted, "Yes, there is one thing miss
ing."
"What is that?" demanded John.
"An old idol. But I'm sure neither
•f them took it."
"But what became of it?" John con
tinned. trying to conceal his anxiety.
"Maybe one of the men picked it up
for a curio," the skipper said apolo
geticaiiy. "Everybody seemed to think
the old thing was worthless, and you
know a sailor will grab at just thai
kind of thing. Better ask some of the
crew."
A few moments later Dorr had learn
ed that one of the anllors had Indeed
taken the Image and gone uptown with
it, apparently to sell It.
John thanked the captain, and wheu
he and Ruth were out of earshot h«
said, "That idol in what we are after,
Ruth."
"But where can we find it?" she
mourned.
"We must trace the sailor. Ten to
one he'll try to aell it to a secondhand
man. Our best plan is to look into the
pawnshops, I think, Ruth," he an
swered.
The first placee they visited gave up
no information of value. The third
pawnbroker looked at Dorr curiously
when he askeel whether » man had
been in to dispose of an idol.
"That thing seems to be wanted pret
ty much," he remarked. "But I bought
it In good faith and sold it to a Hindu
a little while after for a rug. Maybe
you would like to buy a rug?"
They made It plain that rugs did not
Interest them and departed with the
poor satisfaction of knowing that thu
object of their search was in the hands
of an unknown wandering peddler of
rugs, who was presumably an Bast In
dian.
"We can't do any mere just now,"
John told Ruth.
"No," was the response. "But I am
going to keep an eye out for a Hindu
rug seller. I don't Imagine there are
very many of them here, so It ought to
be an eajsy matter to pick him up."
As they walked back to the hotel
Ruth grew more cheerful. "At any
rate. Wilkerson and Mrs. Darnell miss
ed it," she remarked.
"I never understood just why thai
woman mixwl herself up in this," John
... i V
■API the is after is money."
said thoughtfully. "Ton must hav«
got some notion, Ruth. Tou were wltl
her some time."
"Yes, I have an idea," she responded.
"I'm not sure of all the details, but
it seems Mrs. Darnell knew both fa
ther and Harry Wilkerson In the old
days and—and"—
"And what?"
"Well," she went on. blushing divine
ly, "father didn't like Jean and
wouldn't have anything to do with hei
nor allow me to either. She always
hated father after that."
"Wilkerson is certainly in love witl
her," John said presently.
"1 think he is," Ruth asserted. "Bui
she doesn't care anything about him
I'm sure. All she is after is money."
Later in the evening as they discuss
ed the events of the day John brought
up the subject of Wilkerson's nnxleti
for the papers again and recalled th<
fact that old Tom Gallon had alway!
insisted on Wilkerson's knowledge ol
something.
"I wonder just what it was," he went
on. "If he knows just where thai
rich lode is he's concealed his knowl
edge pretty well, and the eagerness h(
is showing to get hold of the plans li
proof that he isn't sure."
"He is spending lots of money," she
sighed. "How much longer can w<
keep this up. John? Surely we art
broke again V"
"Not po long as good old Everett
sticks by us." was the response.
