An old Norwegian spoke to her on deck: K ; ; "JJer rock's brought der need for i.. life-boats, and der looks like dere's not ttough.

Afraid for one whom she had nover seen or beard of before they left San Francisco bar- i bor. At adjacent seats at No. 3, Jean's table in the dining roem, there had sat ] : Mrs. Asa Scalea of St Louis, on her 1 > way for a trip to Japan, with her one 1 daughter, Dorothy, a pretty fair girl of nineteen; Mrs, Thornton, of Cleveland, with her young daughter; William Bowman, of Memphis, a young widower, going to Pekin with two ba bles 0f six u< three he ceuld not beer . to leave behind, and Lansing Webster, Of St. Lenis, the payeet-heartdd yeusg man that oyer took passage on a trans- ' Paelfle liner, or treaMed the heart of 1 ' a frond Bfiacopallaa bishop father.

One day while Mrs. Scales slept the ?' deep deep ef the overfed jutd Webster took malicious pleasure in sitting, with -Dorothy's full approval, hy the daughter's . deck chair, Mrs. Scales' t... maid sat down by Jean.

Of late, events hare circled fast about me, and drawn me close and closer to some frightful vortex of human experience. For a while big and little incidents were all ajurable. Mother delivered her passports to Elotse, who thereafter seemed to Improve. Then wo bought a grocery and transferred it to Tommy., Next a tremendous responsibility was lifted from the entire Leriraer family. All the explosives whlrh Daddy had "parked" somewhere la the east have been sunk in the seal Daddy explained to mother and Chrys and me how greatly he was relieved; although, he says that, according to the company's count, there's an extra car of the stuff floating around the land, somewhere! Lost! Or stolen, rather! And getting mere dangerous the longer it is kept! I conldn't help recalling, with sharp distress, that I had heard Chrys reading a government message to Certeis In the Lorlmer office, weeks ago. And her voice, I1 remembered, was even, slow and monotonous at the time, exactly like the tone she had used In her oulja seance! New Years day she was self-hypnotlred, according to Certeis. Was It possible mat another person, say Certeis himself, could also hypno tlse Chrys? This was a shocking solution of tho mysterious "leak" from the Lorimer office. But, new that the war was done with so suddenly, it was about the only solution of that mystery I was ever likely to get. When Daddy's old secretary, Alexander Brown, finds the lost car, he will take back his Job, and Chrys will return to private life? as I have decided to do. Mother has completed arrangements there'll he something to hold us up? afterward!" Then they sat still?waiting?holding one another's hands. "If I could have lived," he whispered over and over, as if life were already drifting? I'd have made you happy, Jean, I'd have made you happy!" Then there rose a great cry from the crew and the men who had been looking death In the face. The little steamer that was to save them all was bearing down upon them! HOULT Mrs. Saterfield Hopeful.

Something 1 blurry, like a wire drop curtain on a J stage, settled between me and the group across the hall. I stood still < on tne lowest step, my arms dropped to my side. My chin was high. Bob, across the hall, had caught the whole picture of my entrance upon the new act of my life. "Jane Ames! What a pleasure to find you here!' he said in a friendly way. "How does it happen?" "Hear the hoy!" exclaimed Chrys in utter dismay. "Is he stark mad?" whispered Daddy, watching Bob and me As we phook hands formally.
