. Copyritfh 909. by Mitchell Kennerley
MR. DEVINH venturedrfu little
excursions out nroTTnd the
lawn, but keeping tlio light
ed doorway lu sight lie
shuddered to think what would hap
pen to him If ho should loso It or some
ono should turn off tho light.
IIo marveled nt tho Increased bulk
of tho cottage.
"Looks ns big as tho Madison Squaro
Garden," he commented. "Wonder
how she'd show off If she was all
Then, getting a now angle, he per
ceived four yellow rectangles In au
upper story. They wero windows
which faced tho rear.
"That's whero tho help stays, ch?"
No, now thnt ho remembered, tho
fervnnts' quarters wero In another
wing. A few steps more brought It
In view, and thero wero more lighted
windows. IIo returned to cast a per
plexed gazo at tho four yellow rec
tangles. IIo could mako out a shadow
on one. It was tho silhouette of a

man's head, a man with a beard and
eyeglasses. Ho seemed to be reading.
Then another shadow tlltted Across tho
shade, a slighter, more graceful shape,
evidently a woman's.
"Nothing ghostly about that," re
marked tho Cherub. "Am I In a board
ing houso or what?"
Finding a lawn seat, he swung It
around, lighted u fresh cigar and
leaued back to mako a comfortable
eurvey and reflect upon his discovery
at leisure. Instead of ono thero were
two jersons for whom ho could not
account. Perhaps thero wero more
four. Ave, sis, a dozen. Why not?
iioom was not lacking. True, he had
been given to understand, both by Uul
Ulns and by Tlwmlns, that ho had
bought u houso tenanted only by serv
nnts. But persons who read books
in tho library, dropped laco handker
chiefs and occupied rooms in tho main
portion of tho houso could not bo
The Cherub wondered and speculat
ed and mado wild guesses as to tho
identity of tho persons in those upper
rooms. Having no startlug point, no
clow to follow, he arrived nowhere.
"Give it up," he said. "Guess I'll
go to bed."
Why ho should rise at tho unearthly
hour of 0, however, ho explained In
qulto a different way. Ho accused a
few twittering sparrows of waking
ldm. Perhaps, too, It was tho spar
rows which drove him out to mako a
circuit of the grounds. Quito Inci
dentally he glanced up ht the win
dows ho had watched tho night before.
The closed shutters revealed nothing.
Finding a bench under a tree, ho sat
down and began to wonder how long
it would bo beforo ho might call for
his breakfast without seeming unsea
sonable. IIo was aroused by u'eruueh
cruueh of footsteps on tho gravel.
Sonio ono was walking down ono of.
the Intersecting paths.
Curing the brief instant that ho
stared he had 11 glimpse of a slender,
big eyed young woman whoso hair
hung In a thick, dark braid over ono
shoulder. Across the hollow of her
left arm was n sheaf of freshly cut
flowers, in her right baud n pair of
shears. And then sho saw him.
Down fell tho roses. Tho shears
clattered on tho stones.
By the time ho could scramble to his
feet sho had gathered up her flowers
and tho shears. She stood qulto still,
tying him with npprehonslve expocta
'lion. "Eh?" said tho Cherub.
"I I said uothlng," replied tho young
"But you squealed, didn't vou?"
"Well, 1 was scared out of a year's
growth. Next tirao you feel like squeal
ing you might tend mo word, so I can
brace myself. Live here, do you?"
"Why or that Is not exactly."
"Neitherdo 1, thank the. Lord! I
Just own tho place. But don't mind
me. Go ahead with your posy pick
ing." "You you don't object to"
"Great Scott, no! Cut 'em all if you
Only after sho wbb out of sight did
Mr. Dovlno realize that hero was an
other person whoso prosonco nt How
lugton Acres was not fully accounted
for. She could not be ono of tho
servnnts. Ho was sure of that But
when you find n person about the
grounds of a prlvato house, apparent
ly quite at home, and they reply when
asked If they live there, "Not exact
ly," what Is one to infer? Sho couldn't
bo a guest Who was thero for her
to visit? Nor a boarder.
"Strikes mo I ought to tako a cen
sus," commented tho Cherub.
Going back to tho house, ho rang a
bell until Epplngs nppeared, heavy
eyed and lugubrious.
"Breakfast ready yet?"
"Breakfast, sir? It's rather early,
"Early! It's tho mlddlo of tho fore
noon. Go stir things up In tho kitch
en." As Epplngs departed tho hall clock
chimed 7. The Cherub grinned. Ho
had not breakfasted nt 7 for years. In
less than an hour, though, breakfast
was an accomplished fact, nnd Mr.
Devlne, now soothed by ono of his
black cigars, set out for a more ex
tended tour of tho grounds. He dis
covered tho pafh leading to tho sound
and had spojit some time on tho porch
of tho boathouso watching tho steam
ers and coasting vessels crawl past
when Timmlns camo down, evidently
In search of hlra.
"Maybe 1 didn't mention last night,
sir," began Timmlns suavely, "any
thing about tho Hewingtons?"
"I guess you didn't, Timmlns."
"Tho fact Is. sir, they haven't gone."
"Haven't gonel Why, whero are
"Back at tho houso, sir. It's all on
account of tho old lady, sir, Mr. Hew
ington's sister, who has took so bad
sho couldn't bo moved. Perhaps 1"
"It's all right. There's Mr. Hewlng
ton and his sick sister, is there? That
"And tho Countess VecchI, sir."
"Tho which?" Mr. Devlno grabbed
the cigar from between his teeth and
turned quickly on Timmlns.
"Tho Countess VecchI, sir, as stayed
to look nfter the-aunt Tho couutess is
the married daughter, sir. Tho count's
been dead two years, sir, and" hero
Timmlns coughed npologetlcally be
hind his hand "tho Hewingtons wa'n't
precisely sorry to loso him."
"Not a howling success, eh?"
"Hardly, sir. Tho countess left him
two hours after the wedding."
"Sho must be a hummer," observed
tho Cherub, and then reflectively:
"Countesses are hardly In my lino.
Guess you can hook up pretty soou
and drive mo back to the station. I
don't want to disturb tho old lady."
"Lord, sir, you won't seo any of
them! No sooner-dld they hear you
were coming than they moved into the
top floor of tho east wing, and there
they've shut themselves up llko tho
houso was quarantined. Besides, sir,
thero Isn't another express you could
get to tho city until tho 10:33 tonight."
"Oh, well, there's plenty of time
then! Perhaps you'll bo able to dig up
somo more reports beforo night"
Mr. Devlno was thinking of tho
young person ho had seen iu the gar
den. It didn't matter who sho was, of
course, but it might be interesting to
Tho day passed, howover, without
further discoveries, although at any
moment tho Cherub was prepared to
fluil himself confronted cither by Mr.
Hcwlugtou or the countess or tho
youug woman of tho roses or somo
wholly unknown person.
He had seated himself for another
solitary and stately meal when a bell
rang somewhere, and Epplngs excused
himself to answer It. Then ensued out
In tho reception hall a whispered con
versation, part of which Mr. Devlno
could hardly avoid hearing, although
ho was certain it was not iuteuded for
"Is that that dreadful man in
there?" asked u voice.
Epplngs reappeared to aunounco im
pressively, "Tho Countess VecchI, sir."
"Oh, tho devil!" Mr. Devlno grab
bed his napkin end from between tho
second and third mittous of his waist
coat and dropped It across his left
knee. He had a vague notion that all
countesses were large, stout women,
who wore crowns of some sort, ermine
trimmed robes and u multltudo of
Through the doorway stepped tho
big eyed, slender young person whom
ho had seen beforo breakfast In the
garden. Sho wore neither crown nor
ermine robes. Tho braid of dark hair
had been transformed into a slmnle

"Hello! You?" ho exclaimed. "Say,
honest, you aren't the couutess, are
Sho bowed nu admission of tho fact,
evidently much disconcerted by this
"Well, I'll be hanged!" continued
Mr. Devine. "Say, have a seat, won't
Sho walked resolutely to tho oppo
site end of tho table from Mr. Devlno
and nervously clasped and unclasped
her fingers ns she spoke.
"My father wishes me to say that
tho serious condition of my aunt makes
it impossible for us to leave the houso
at present. Just as soon as sho im
proves wo will go away."
"Oh, that's all right! Stay as long
as you like."
"But we don't want to stay at all.
My father wishes you to understand
that. It It Is very painful for him
to accept a favor, even toleration, from
you. He charged me not to apologize,
however, as the circumstances are be
yond our control. I am not apologiz
ing, you see, only explaining."
"Oh. you're doing flnel" said Mr.
Devine nssurlngly. "Anything else the
old gentleman wants me to under
stand?" "No; I think that is nil, except that
during your stay." continued tho count
ess, "wo shall koep to our rooms."
"Oh, you needn't do that!" protest
ed Mr. Devlne.
"But it is my father's desire," add
ed the countess. "And wo shall take
all our meals there."
"Looks as If I didn't stand very well
with your father," commented Mr. De
vine. "Is there anything special?"
"He thinks that you are rather that
Is, that you you" A sudden rush of
color came into the olive shaded cheeks
of the countess, and her brown eyes
began to study tho rug pattern. Mr.
Devlne suddenly decided that some
times countesses were nice to look at
"Yes," he said encouragingly, "rather
"Well, rather wild and wicked and
reckless, you know. Ho was afraid
that you might become er intoxicat
ed." A cherubic expression spread over
the pink and white face of Mr. Devine.
"Thinks I'm a sort of a cross between
a cowboy and a pirate, eh? Seems to
know all about mo too!"
"Ho has read about you in tho news
papers," ventured the countess, with
a shy, half curious glance which for
an instant met the calm, level gaze of
Mr. Devlne's blue eyes.
