('ureless ness in the writer has perhaps more to do with letters being delivered to the wrong person than either of these causes. Ui" day a letter addressed in a fem inine bund was left by the carrier for me. 1 opened It and read It. It was very short and to the point: Ten p. m Tbui mlay ut the fountain. Vio lets in my belt. Hold roso In your left hand. LAI) HA. I opened my eyet very wide and gave a low whistle. Who could It be who was making an appoint incut with me? Then I looked again at the address. My nnme Is 1'raiuis 1!. Marshall, nnd the superscription appeared to be F. R Marshall, but it Might huve been I It. Wlnchell. 1 thought over ewry per son who might possibly desire to see me clandestinely, but could fix upon no one. What should I do in the unil terV Should I return the letter to the post pi Since I had opened it, that would not do at nil. Ilesides, I wnH not, sute the letter was not for me. Should I keep Ihe appointment and possibly risk Intruding upon the secret of others? I ilually decided to MM Laura nnd. if I was not tl' person she desired to meet, hand her her let ter, that she might know It hud been mlsseut. Since there was but one fountain in town, mid that In the center of an open square. I was not in doubt ns to the place de-dmiated for the meeting. It was a public place, w hei-a si rangers might meet without being especially nothvd. Litta hid evidently never seen me nor I Laura, else W9 would not have to wear some m-trk by which to be known to each other. When the clock in u church tower near by the park struck 10 I entered the park carrying a rose In my hand, and, approaching the fountain, stood leaning upon the basin looking at the tiny wavelets made by Ute water sprinkling down upon It. I had waited perhaps live minutes when I saw u lady advancing with some violets tucked in her lie't. It occurred to me that pdM wis purpoicly a trifle late that she RifgBt inspect Hie beioie I should he able to InspOCl her ami did not doubt that she bad got a view of me while I was st.iadlng under the lighted fountain. -Xs ppionchoJ I advanced to meet her, lifting my hat a) the same time. As we waiked away (together slip said: "Let me explain to you v.liy ! have arranged this lueetlng Instead of call Ing at your odaco or asking you to MMM and see me. An you are mvnre. M.

I asked, "at your disposal to nay for Information that will lead to the recovery of the lost, probably stolen, win?" "Not a cent." The lady had by this time removed her veil, nnd X had ranghl a glimpse of her face as we passed under street lamps. She appeared to bo about twenty years old and was de idedly comely. Under an Impulse I decided to take up the case for her, lind out If she were about to fall Into the hands of swindlers und, If she were, protect her. " Permit me to assure you." I said, "that in me you have a fricud." "I do not doubt It." "Why not?" "I can tell a dishonest man the mo ment I see him. You tire trustworthy " "Thunk you. Now give me an ad dress to which I can write you." I gave her a bit of paper torn from a letter I had in my pocket and a pen cil. She wrote "Laura Q. Ostrander, 127 1 street." It was the house of a friend to whOM she had COOfldad DM case. I left her at the door of her own lions,, nnd went to ny room. Hefore going to bed I wrote a note disguised for a feminine hand, addressed to l B. Wlnchell. The letter that had come to me had no street and number on It, bo none was needed on the note 1 wrote, i Informed Mr. Win hell thai at a certain boor on a certain night he would find a carriage standing 'at a oertaln place. He was to uet Into the carriage, where he would And "Laura." who would hear what he had to say. Haying Sealed my note, I went out and posted It.
