Noel will raise no objections and Mary will go on with her en gagements with Redfleld. But where Is Mary ? Busy being kind and gentle to her husband, I suppose.” I knew that he did not mean his words to sound like a sneer, but to my overwrought imagination, they had exactly that intonation. 1 flushed painfully, not only be cause of what he was saying, but because of my consciousness of the disappointing answer 1 must give him. ••Yes, she Is over with Noel,” I said, ”and I am afraid you will be angry at what I must tell you now.” He gave me another keen glance, and I knew that my flushed face and slightly trembling hands did not escape his observation. “I think you may tell me al most anything,” he said, “after the almost Insuperable task with Noel and Mary you have just accomplished.” My spirits leaped from nadir to zenith in a trice. ”You really mean that?” I asked banally—and tremulously. “I really mean It,” he said, ”so tell me your piece of news at once.

I hope there Is going to be no delay on that.” Nadir and zenith changed places again, so far as my spirits were concerned, but there was no use dodging the issue and I girded my self for the fray. “We do not even know where Stephen Redflrld Is.” I said. “I shall have to And that out from Philip Yerltzen, who spirited the actor out of Noel's way last evening. And I have promised Mary that I will see him first and pave the way for her first meeting with him, since the scathing xerhal dressing down the gave him last night.” “Yes, that's a wise pre caution,” he assented quickly. OUTLINES HER PLAN “I have a talking point of ap proach which I want to submit to you later for your approval.” “Presently, presently,” he said a bit impatiently. “You haven’t told me yet when Mary Is going to stage this reconciliation with her leading man.” There was no use dodging the Issue any longer. I gave him the only answer I had. “She Is going to get In his way, and make It look acci dental, tonight at the theater when they are getting ready tor the play.” (Continued tomorrow) Ruv a Bomber For the “Inside News” of Washington, Follow Paul Mal ian's Column La tba Times.
