As he did so his hand C went into his pocket 'and somecthing w crisp and green found its way into the chauffeur's palm. "Chris, you're a mighty good fel low; and I think you're a discreet one as well," said he. "Now, have you ii enough sporting blood in your veins to take a chance and do just as In say?" b Chris looked a bit dubious. Then a he glanced at the contents of his right n hand, and his doubts seemed to be of the order that are amenable to rea son. "I want that coat and' those gog gles," said Remick, "and I want to V change places with you for an hour v or so." Chris hesitated. "It will cost me P my job, sir," he said. P "I'll get you another just as good," u Remick declared. Still Chris hesitated. Remick drew himself up. "Will you do it in the peaceable a fashion I suggest," he asked, "or do you want me to take that coat and i those goggles by force? I'm desper ate, Chris, and at the present moment I'm perfectly capable of following L such a course." t Chris grinned. "That bein' the case, f sir, and in event of anything happenin' to my job you'll sure find me another, I'll take a chance. Hurry, now," he n went on, sliding out of the car. "Miss Felicia may come out any minute." Into the friendly concealment of a near-by doorway the two consipators stepped. In a moment Remick, his identity effectually concealed by the high collar of the yellow coat and the goggles, climbed into the car, and perched at the wheel in an attitude very like the one Chris was prone to affect. Chris, meantime, swinging Remick's stick, wearing Remick's hat, and smo king, with much satisfaction, one of Remick's cigars, strode jauntily away down the street and was lost in the hurrying crowds on the sidewalk. Three minutes later Felicia came out of the little shop. The proprietor himself opened the door for her; es corted her to the car and helped her in. "And you'll find me a mate to that candlestick, Mr. Barlow?" Felicia was asking. "I'll do my best, Miss Graham," the rotund little shopkeeper assured her. Then, "Home, Chris," she ordered, while Remick's heart all but jumped out of his mouth. Away went the car, swung a corner to the smooth, gleaming asphalt of the avenue and went tearing along at a great pace. The streets went past in rapid succession; a lever was pressed down and the car answered with a wild burst of speed. Felicia gasped. "Chris, what has Mr. Graham told you often about speeding this car?" she said severely. "Slow down at once. You are way beyond the speed limit." There was no sign that the chauft feur had heard her. The car, roaring and puffing, shot ahead. Felicia raised her voice to make herself heard above the noise of the throbbing engine. "Chris"-there was a note of alarm in her voice-"what does this mean? Where on earth are you going? You've Spassed the house. Stop! Do you hear me? Stop at once!" She reached forward to touch his arm. They shot across a bridge and struck a smooth, hard macadam road Sin the suburbs. The houses were set Sback from the street. The great elms, bordering it on either side, offered a I, certain friendly concealment. - The car slowed down and stopped. SOn the back seat a frightened girl saw the chauffeur shed his goggles and whisk down the upturned collar of his Scoat. And facing her,' Remick was Ssmiling blandly. "Now then," he said it tones he strove to make matter of fact, "I shall proceed at once to dictate that an swer to my question. You promised, Felicla! You know you did," he said. Felicia gasped again. But she was not the person to accept defeat un* gracefully. Her head was lifted proud d ly. Her nose went the fraction of an inch higher. "Well," said she, "proceed with the dictation." r Then her eyes fell.

SSecond thoughts prevent a man S from having lots of fun. Woman's Power Over Man Woman's most glorious endowment is the power to awaken and hold the pure and honest love of a worthy man. When she loses it and still loves on, noo one in the wide world can know the heart agony she endures. The woman who suffers from weak. mess and derangement of her special womanly or* ganism soon loses the power to sway the heart of a man. Her general health suffers and she loses her good looks, her attractiveness, her amiability aend her power and prestige as a woman. Dr. R.V.
