In a New York jewelry store Philip Severn, tinted States consular agent, notices a small box which attracts him. He purchases it. I .liter he discovers in a se.iet compartment a writing giving a clew to a revolutionary movement In this country seeking to overthrow the Chilean government The writing mentions a rendezvous, and Severn decides to Investigate. Finding the place menl'cned in the writing apparently deserted, Severn visits a saloon In the vicinity. A woman in the place is met by a man, seemingly by appointment, and Severn, his suspicions aioused, follows them. They go to the designated meeting place, an abandoned iron foundry. At the rendezvous Severn is accepted as one of the conspiratois and admitted. He meets a stranger who addresses him as Harry Daly. The incident plays into Severns hands and he accepts It. His new acquaintance Is a notorious thief, "Gentleman George" Harris. Concealed, Severn hears the girl he had followed address tlie conspirators. She urges them to hasten the work of revolution. CHAPTER IV 6 Continued The agent? Oh, you mean 10S? What about that arrangement, Mr. Horner? 1 recognized Harris In the reply, his voice perfectly calm and confident. In nil probability he lied, but It was done most convincingly. Those were my positive instructions in London, he said coolly. The hanldng house there was not to be involved in the slightest degree; no trace of the transaction was to appear on their books. But why has the money not been drawn and used? That Is for Alva to say. I tried to get him to act, but he refused without another authorization from Mendez, and special instructions . You never received these, Senor Alva? , No. I asked by code; I supposed he would answer by messenger. There was a pause, a silence. I Imagined I could understand something of what Harris was endeavoring to accomplish in this delay, this getting the entire sum transferred into currency in private hands. It was one more step in his intricate scheme of robbery, but so cautiously concealed as to arouse no suspicion. What else had he done to this end already? To achieve delay, and thus gain opportunity, had he intercepted, or even changed, the code message sent by Alva to Washington? All this was possible enough, yet it was evident that the woman accepted , the explanation as satisfactory. I do not know how true all this is. I was told she said at last, slowly. the money was already being used. I do not believe there is any necessity of any further indorsement, as Senor Alva Is working under direct commission from the Junta, with full authority to act. However, I will verify this tomorrow. I am going to retire now, senors, and leave you alone to discuss the matters I have presented. Above all It Is recessary that I should know at once who you select for the important work, and when we may expect results. This information I must positively take back with 'me. When do you return?

Her eyes stared directly into mine, her face whitening under the ight, her teeth shutting dou n close against the red lips as though to repress a scream. She was startled almost beyond control, yet mastered the fright instantly. She glanced about at the partially open door, and silently closed it tightly. What what are you doing here? she gasped in English, her voice trembling. Listening?

She appeared puzzled, doubtful, yet to my surprise still held the door tightly closed, her eyes searching my face. Who is the man you know your particular friend? I hesitated an instant, the name es- caping me. Horner. Oh, indeed; you were not very prompt to answer." "Well, I said, and managed to smile, as though it was of little consequence, you see I have not always known him by that name. There are times when names need to be changed occasionally.

At least she had pushed It wide open before I realized the necessity of retreat, and I was hemmed in behind Its barrier, fortunately securely hidden from the eyes of those In the larger apartment.
