Adams turned back to the smoking compartment. Now for Mr. Morton P. Adams the salt of life was a joke, harmless or otherwise, as the tree might fall. So, during the long afternoon which he wore out in solitude there grew up In him a keen desire to see what would befall If these two whom he had so protesquely misrepresented each to the other should come together in the pathway ot acquaintanceship. But how to bring them together was a problem which refused to be solved until chance pointed the way. Since the "Limited" had lost another hour fjllring the day, there was a rush for the dining car as soon as the announce nient of iu taking on had gone through Adams and Winton were the train. of this rush, and so were the members of Mr. Somerville Darrah's party. In the seating the party was separated, as room at the crowded tables could be found; and Miss Virginia's fate gave her the unoccupied seat at a one of the duet tables, opposite steadfast with man gray eyes young and a Van Dyck beard. Winton was equal to the emergency, Adams was or thought he was. still within call, and he beckoned him, meaning to propose an exchange of seats. But the Bostonian misunderstood willfully. "Most happy, I'm sure," he said, coming instantly to the rescue. "Miss Carteret, my friend signals his dilemma. May I present him?" Virginia smiled and gave the required permission- in a word.
