The chimes of the Metropolitan Tower rang the hour of two. At the first stroke, Ro salie, as one who finds relief in ac tion, ran down the basement steps and opened the back door. Inspector Martin McGee, dressed in plain clothes and carrying a small bag. was waiting outside. "All set?" he asked under breath.

You try to smile and give your sag ging features an upward slant, but your friend catches you before you have succeeded and again exercises her diabolical frankness. "Now, don't feel hurt," she admon ishes, "you know you can't make people think you are a spring chicken, no matter how much you like to" do so. Other people may flatter you with the idea, but I always say what 1 think." ' Mentally you tell yourself that if you said what you thought you would certainly tell your frank friend that her thoughts must always be very dis agreeable ones, as you seldom have heard her express herself pleasantly about anybody or anything.

The two city detectives and the one police matron were waiting silently in Rosalie Re Grange's room. As the in spector entered, a change came over them. None rose or shifted position, but their bodies took on an appear ance of alert stiffness, their faces a look of attention. Salutes, square shoulders, all the frills and decora tions of military etiquette, were un necessary among these four to prove the strictness of the inspector's com mand. McGee locked the door behind him. Rcsalie closed the transom. "Is this place safe for talk, now?" "Perfect." said Rosalie. "Ive tried it. Rut talk low, to be sure." The inspector opened the bag.

They drove right up to a king's pal ace! The carriage they were in wast so beautiful and the horses were so well groomed that the king believed the three old soldiers to be king's sons from a neighboring province He greeted them with open arms and made them acquainted right away, with his beautiful daughter! Now, this daughter was very clever and cunning. One day while ,the sec ond soldier was walking with the princess in the garden she noticed the purse he carried. S"he asked him about it. He foolishly told her the story of the red jacket dwarf and the three gifts. Immediately the princess decided she would have the cloak and the purse and the horn. She set to work and made another purse just like the soldier's.

I have made it a practice in the last few years to cut all distressingly frank people off my list of acquaint ances. I don't want to be told I am growing old; that gown 1 must wear another year is entirely out of fash ion, that the girl my brother is going to marry is much older than he; that it is strange my husband married a dark woman, he always seemed so devoted to blonds. Ignorance or these things is bliss for me, consequently I fight shy of all those people who think it a virtue to tell me the fauks and foibles of myself and my family. Then there are the people who are so arrogantly frank about themselves, who seem to think that what happens to themselves is of the utmost import ance to the world at large. While these people do leave so many heart burnings behind them they are the worst of bores. Utter frankness about one's self or about others is not only ' a small vice, but it is very bad taste.

They needed money. The sec ond soldier got out his purse, took out the money in it, but found, to his dis may, that no more came in. Then he guessed the princess had played a trick on him and he confessed to hav ing told her their secret about the dwarf and the gifts. "Don't worry," said the first old soldier. "I will fix that." He put on his cloak and wished himself In the princess' sitting room. Sure enough, there he found-her counting her tfold. Then he stood looking at her. But he stood too long, for she turned and saw him. shouting with all her might, "Thieves. Thieves." The servants and the whole court. In fact, came rushing to see what was the matter! He was very much frightened and de cided to get away. Forgetting that he could "wish himself away, he ran to an open window and jumped. Un luckily his cloak caught on a snag. The princess saw it and Joyfully snatched it, for she knew Its worth. The poor old soldier went back to his friends to tell them his sad plight. "Never mind." said the third old soldier. "I will call 8.1d." So he put the horn in his mouth and sent forth a great blast of sound. Immediately armed horsemen appeared ail around the old soldiers. And together they set out to make "war on the king whose daughter had possessed herself of the magic cloak and purse. The king did not know what to do, so went to his daughter for advice. "Lea.ve it to me." she said, reassur ingly. "I think I can find a way to drive these men out of our country." What do you think she did? She managed to fteal the horn out of the third old soldier's tent when he was not looking. Then the three old fellows w.?re completely, stranded.
