Unsealed Notes How They Were Carried by a Girl bet ween Two PhUanlhropbU By r A. MITCHCL Copyright by American Praaa Asso elation, mil. "Lucy," suld Mrs. Goungle to me, "I wish you to take this note to Mr. Con stable. The automobile Is at the door, and Peter will drive you there at once. I send the note by you because It Is upon u matter of unusual Importance." 1 am Mis. Goungle' s secretary. She ts a wealthy woman and n philanthro plst. I am unfortunate enough to have been born and reared in affluence und then forced to make my own livlug 1 confess 1 do not take to the work kindly. Mrs. Gonagle is very good to me, telllug me that 1 should marry a man able to take care of me In style. 1 to which I reply that fate has deprived 1 me of au opportunity to meet such a in-iii. I was driven to Mr. Constable's house and admitted to n sumptuously furnlshed room that was used for bis j fSCe All I knew about him was that he wits worth several millions, and like Mrs. Gonagle, u philanthropist, the two occasionally working together in their beuefactions. A young man not more than twenty-one was sitting behind a rosewood desk writing. I advanced to - w.ird him with the uote und said: "Will you please give this to Mr Constuble and say that Mrs Gonagle would be obliged for au Immediate answer?" The young man looked at me, and I could sec In his eye that he ndmired my appearance Hut 1, being a womun of the world, knew how to appear un conscious of his approbation Then be glanced at the address ou the note und. Inviting me to be seated, left the room. After a short nbsenoe he returned and handed me u reply addressed to Mrs Goungle It was unsealed "Will you kindly mention to Mrs. Gonagle," he suld, "that Mr. Constable, understanding that the bearer of his note Is her secretary, does not feel warranted lu sealing the reply? He wishes Mrs. Gonagle to understand this, for the subject matter Is of con siderable Importance, and the note. If Miffed by an ordinary messenger, should be sealed." Now, while I am to the manner born nnd thoroughly understand the motives that would Induce Mr. Constable to re frain from sending a sealed communi cation by me. 1 am nevertheless a womun. The sense of honor supposed to exist In a highborn dame. I claim. Is as strong In me as in the rest of my class, but that does not necessarily 1m- ply that I am devoid of curiosity. At any rate, what I did on this occasion was to prove that 1 am gifted with my full share of that feminine trait. I bad not long been seated In the auto when 1 took out Mr. Constable's uote a nd read it. Great was my astonishment. This 1 was what I found In it: Dear Mrs. Qonaale I am delighted with year secretary, i am set. ding thla reply 1 by her unsealed. If aliu reads It she has . not the high sense of honor und the dell- I cacy I Would require In a wife. And If lie does read It I tihall know by the con sciousness she will dihplav that she has dene so and shall be ready to have you recommend another helpmeet.

It was plain that Mr. Constable. Instead of being a mid die aged or an old man. was the young fellow I hud taken for his secretary. And I had spoiled It by my curiosity. lu auother moment I resolved to fight the matter to the bitter end. Hut bow? Ten minutes more would serve to carry me to Mrs. Gonagle, aud that would be Insufficient time for me to form a plun. 1 bad owned an auto before the collapse of our family for tunes and knew bow to run one. "Peter," I said, "let me toke your seat. I wish to drive nwhile." Peter stopiied the machine, and I got into bis seut. "Are the tires In good order?" I ask ed. "All but this front one on tho left I've got a new one I'm going to put on there." I determined to obtain delay by burstlug that tire. Turning Into a street In which 1 knew the pavement to be badly broken. I drove vigorously over several holes, ut the last of which there was n report, and the imperfect tire was bursted. "I shall have to leave you. Peter." I aid. "to get out of this trouble as best you can. I am carrying an 1m portant tnessago to Mrs. Gonagle which must be delivered as soon as possible." Alighting. I walked on. The ten minutes thnt had been necessary for me to get home was now extended to nearly an hour, for I had driven the car as far as possible from n trolley line. When I reached Mrs. Oonogle I pretended to be so full of the break down ns to forget Mr. Constable's note. I talked "a blue streak" about the former, not mentioning the latter. Finally Mrs. Gonagle spoke of my er innfl "I saw no one." I said, "hut an nn derstrnpper. who took the note to Mr. Constable and brought me this one In roply He told me to say to you tbnt though It was on n matter of great Importance, he did not seal It, since he sent It by your secretary. All that DON I WORRY THE NEWS WANT ADS. WILL HELP OUT was entirely unnecessary. I'm not In the habit of poking my nose In other people's business." This latter assertion I made with a toss of the bead and left my employ er to read the note by herself. So far so good. 1 had got over the danger of showing consciousness to Mrs. Gonagle, aud this was a great aid. 8 he would doubtless tell Mr. Constable that so far as she could dis cern I had stood the test. This would incline him to Infer, unless 1 quailed under bis searching gaze, that I bad stood It. Emboldened by my first suc cess, 1 determined that I would de ceive blm if It took nil the talent for deception there was lu me. Besides, now that my blood was up for the fight, I would teach blm that be could not play sucb a game on me with Im punity. Nevertheless I knew that unless I could at my next meeting with him throw up n dust as I bad done with Mrs. Gonagle I would be beaten. What was my consternation when Mrs. Gou I agle came into the room where I was writing, not ten minutes after my ar rival, with u note lu her band aud told me that 1 must go right back with it to Mr. Constable. She had telephoned for an auto and It would be at tba door in a few minutes. "I will trust to your high sense of honor," she said, "as Mr. 'unstable has done, leaving my uote unsealed." "It doesn't matter about that, Mrs. Gonagle," I said. "I won't feel hurt If you seal It." But she didn't, and I sealed it my self before her eyes. I had no use for what It contained. The plot was to send me right back to Constable su soon after my guilt if Indeed 1 was guilty that he might the better detect it. There was no time to form or 1 carry out a plan for bis deception, cer- talnly not nuother breakdown. Two such artifices would be a dead give away. I resolved to march straight up ' to him, driving all em harassment out of my bead, acting with absolute ap parent Indifference. I made anotber resolution. 1 resolved but never mind what 1 resolved. When I was ushered into the room where 1 again found him sitting be hlnd his rosewood desk 1 think I could have enacted any part 1 could have tninouuced to hl:a that be was to be decapitated in ten minutes without Bhowlug the slightest trace of emotion. The gfUy eyes were brought to bear ou ; me, but 1 met them with an inquiring, childlike wonder as to why be looked bo hard at me. Then, as if my modesty hud been touched by sucb a gaze, 1 call- i ed up a faint blush and turned my eyes away. 1 felt tbrft I had conquered. 1 My pantomiae would have deceived Satan himself. Still pretending that Mr. Constable : was another person than himself, the secretary took the note out of the room and returned with auotber, which he banded me unsealed. He did not open his lips to me during my brief stuy. i buf. I knew that be was watching me. I I acted as though there was uo one j present except myself, looking most of the time out of the window. The note he gave me I dropped at once into my ! bag without looking at it. pretending to be at the moment bunting for either my handkerchief or my purse. From this time forward I felt that I was mistress of the situation. The only mention I made of Mr. Consta ble was us "the old gentleman who did so much for the poor," und this wns not to Mrs Gonagle. but In her hearing. 1 think this took away any suspicion she might have had that I knew of her plot. She did not send me with any more notes to Mr. Con stable, but did Bend me to him with verbul messages. When I went with the first of theso Mr. Constable's pre tended secretary waxed affable and endeavored to engage me In conversa tion. I showed uo Indisposition to talk with him. though he never gave me one of those gazes of bis but that I lowered my eyes. In one of our chats I asked him if he were Mr. Con stable's'secretary. nnd be replied that he was more than that be was his business manager. "Mr. Constnblo must be a splendid old gentleman." I said, "to do BO much for the poor." "What else can he do with his mon- ! ey? was the response. "He can't spend It all on himself." ' Then the secretary began to come to Mrs. Gonagle's on various pretexts, and every time be camo she would manage to leave us In her office room together while she pretended to be at tending to the matter about which be bad called. I saw that he was bent on wooing, and I permitted blm to woo. He took roe out several times, and oue evening on our returning from the opera on leaving me In the vestibule be pressed my hand. There was light enough for me to show him that I was very much Impressed by the performance. . Time came when be proposed to ma I laughed nt blm. "I don't care to marry a man." I said, "who began hie courtship with the idea that be was a match for a woman." "What do you mean?" ha asked, astounded. "Why. you and Mrs. Gonagle form ed a plot to make me believe that yon are Mr. Constable's secretary. 1 knew from the first that you were Mr. Con stable himself." "How? You surely didn't read tha first note I seut by you?" "Of course I did. Did you take ma for n ninny?" "You played me?" "That was easy." "And nil this encouragement lsH "Pretended. I don't care to marry. I am much pleased with my work and have no Intention of leaving It" That was several weeks ago. Since then Mr. Constable has been pursuing me. and I have at last consented td marry him. Mrs. Gonagle Is to give us a splendid wedding, and we are to go abroad on our bridal trip.
