At last be coaxed back the smiles to her face, but only after giving bis word of honor that so far as he was concerned, the presence of Daphne in his house was not a re flection upon him. Meanwhile the Count, endeavoring to keep bis promise to get Harry out of the scrape, clipped out into the lawn, and by throwing pebbles against the window of the room where Mrs. Diazes was attracted her attention. She opened the windows, and in an almost hysterical voice, begged him to get her out. "I vlll, Iff you' only be quiet," tho Count Oald. "Your husband chust vent In. I saw him ven I come out." "But what can I do?" she asked. "Trust me!" "I did." she sighed, "and lost my bat" "Yess, und I let you baft my ring, too." "Bother your old ring!" she an swered. "I'll give it back to you. 1 hate the sight of It!" "Gift it to me, den," the Count wbls pered, eagerly. "I will," she hesitated, "when I get out of here." The Count swiftly disappeared from view a the front door opened and Harry and the General came down the steps. The General'! arm waa across Harry's shoulders. "My boy," bo was saying. "I couldn't bolp coming back to assure you that I on deeply sorry." "Say no more about It, General,'' Harry begged. "But, Harry." the General asked, confidentially, "how did that litUe flirt happen to bo In that room?" "Well," Harry explained, "that waa a little affair concerning her and Count ron Fits. I don't feel at liberty to go into details but It's Just a flir tation, you might say." "She's a charmer, all right enough, Harry, my boy!" the General said. "Ah! If my wife only knew if she ever found out how I have flirted with some of these dashing damsels!" Mrs. Blazes, from the safety of her window, listened Intently. "What?" Harry asked. "You flirt. General?" "I'm deep, Harry, devilish deep! I say nothing, but I saw a lot of wood. Don't worry about any little flirtations of your own. Come to me for advice If you need It. Everybody must sow bis wild oats, you know." "Yes," Harry agreed, "but the wild eats you sow the night before don't make good breakfast food the morn ing after." "Well, anyway," the General said, we understand each other. No more hard feelings?" "Not a bit Not a bit" Harry reas sured him. The General waved bis hand cordially as he strode down to the street Mrs. Blazes watched him disappear In the dusk, nodding her head significantly. "Wild oats, eh?" she said. "Flirta tions, eh? Wait until I get home!" She leaned out of the window and called to Harry. He glanced up at her and smiled wearily. "How In the world am I to get out of here?" she asked, petulantly. "I think I'll have that run as a put ale In the Sunday papers," Harry an swered, grimly. "I'll say this, though: When you do get out you needn't be too punctilious about making your pcrty call" "This Is no time for Joking" "It's the only time I've got You've put me In a pretty mess." "I'm Just as sorry as I can be, Mr. Swlfton. But look at the muddle I am In." "Oh, I've seen worse muddles than this," Harry answers, easily. And I'm simply starving to death," she said, hungrily. "I'm going to slip some sandwiches in there for you, if the blockade doesn't lift pretty soon. Meantime, keep away from that window as much as possible. Some one may happen to ee you and I'm out of explanations." Mrs. Blazes drew back a bit from the window, and asked: "Hare you heard anything of my hat?" Harry sank down on a Uwn bench with a weary air. "Where have I heard of hats?" ho aid. "I've ordered a bat for you. Daphne, the daffy daffodil, la making oao for you.
