You greet me as Philip Severn tonight yet last evening I told you my name was Harry Daly. How did you know I lied? And bow did you dls- cover who I really was? Her eyes sparkled with enjoyment. I knew 'that would be your first question. The answer. Is extremely Did you wonder why I did simple. not denounce you to those men in the You other room? Oh, you did! knew you were there surreptitiously, In disguise, under a false name, masquerading as a friend of that fellow Horner. You knew it well, so did I. But how could you know that? What gave you such a suspicion? And, knowing it, why should you desire to protect me? "Ill waive your last question; that can waft its own answer. She leaned toward me and her extended hand touched a ring I wore. "Because men who wear a Yale signet of 1899 are not going to be connected with that kind of a gang, she said gravely. But, Iexclalmed, hewHdered, how did you recognise the signet? My brother wears one. Your brother! In ray class? You will not tell me his name? No, Mr. Severn. I have reason to believe you know him very well, or did a few years ago. However, that was why I trusted you so suddenly. I pinned my faith on the honor of old Yale. That Is why I kept silent and asked you to call at 247 Le Compte will tell you all I can, but S Of course, I only met him that night you remember in the saloon, but he was very disagreeable even during the short time we were together. I would not have ridden alone with him at that hour for worlds. Mr. Krantz and I came downtown together on a street car he was the oid man, you may remember. I asked him to escort me. I am very glad to hear you say that. Glad! Why, what do you mean? her eyes widened, with sudden apprehension. You did not suppose'I was with Alva when he was murdered, did your - Yet is it so strange, after all? I defended, rather indignantly. In a way it seemed Impossible enough to connect you even indirectly with such a crime. But I have only known you as an associate with these men. In truth, 1 know very little more regarding you, even now. You meet them secretly, bearing credentials and orders from high junta conspirators, who are plotting against the very life of their country. You know their plans and are aiding them. Why, under such conditions should I make an exception in your case merely because you are a woman? So you actually believed me capable of that atrocity? Perhaps you are justified, if you think me a Chilean. Are you not? No, I am not a Chilean, Mr. Severn. I am an American girl, as loyal to my . , all complicated, you see. "No, but even then your Information was incomplete. Yet I found it quite easy to fill in the details. Do you recall your class at ' ' picture, with the names printed below?

The answer Instantly brought back to my mind what those circumstances might be. Her immediate presence, her 'ease of manner and happy mode of speech had for the moment obliterated the dark crime with which she was associated.

Will you accept my word for this? I certainty do, more gladly than Country you dream. Then let us talk no more about It. she glanced at her wrlsf watch. You have a story to tell me how you came to be present last night? A mere accident put me in possession of certain information that a coterie of South American conspirators in this country were receiving a large sum of money from friends in LonThis money don, I explained briefly. was to be expended either In the purchase of arms or the killing of certain Chilean officials, leading to an overthrow of government. My knowledge was extremely vague not sufficient, you understand, to warrant my making (Prepared by the National ctety, Washington, Geographic So D. C ) The Channel Islands, one of the most picturesque portions of Great Britain, are geographically not a -- part of the British Isles at all. Victor Hun go, who wrote some of his works in the islands, spoke of them as bits of France fallen Into the sea and picked up by England. But really they were In effect the home of a conqueror of Britain. They were a part of the Duchy of Normandy from which William the Conqueror went forth and to which he added the British Isles. All the remainder of Normandy finally reverted to France, but the little Channel islands remain today a reminder that England was best-know- conquered. , 7 These tiny Islands hug the shore of France. Jersey Is barely twenty miles from the French coast, and 100 miles from England. French Is generally spoken In the Islands ; and not English law, but the old Norman law, largely abolished on the neighboring coast of Normandy, governs the actions of the Islanders. any report to the United States authorities. I had no proof beyond a rather vague suspicion. In truth, about all the clew I actually possessed was that these fellows met secretly at a certain number on Gans street. I was half a day in learning that Cans street was located In Jersey City and I went over there that evening to seek blindly for further Information. You knew the names of those Involved? Only casually. I had heard of Alva; that the agent bringing the boodle from England was known as Horner and that the actual money exchange was to be made through Adolph, Krantz, the banker. You had never seen any of these men? Only Krantz ; I knew him by sight. Then it was my meeting with Alva which led you to the factory? Yes--. I had dropped into the saloon because it was the only place to get out of the rain. When Alva arrived, It was.perfectly plain to be seen you two had never met before. You went out together and I could not help but connect the whole affair together. The mud enabled- - me to trail you dc"rn the alley and good luck enabled me to gain entrance to the factory without detection. That is abou the whole h storyji states proclaimed their continued adherence to the king. In the following year the prince of Wales (afterwards Charles II) sought refuge In Jersey, arriving from the Scllly Islands; and Jersey, after the execution of Charles I, was the one place in the United Kingdom to proclaim him king of England. , Shortly after his proclamation he again visited the Island, and was supported both with, men and ' money by Sir George Carteret and the majority of the islanders. . Although It is nearlv three hundred years Since Jersey and Guernsey were at open War, yet the old rancor still lingered .until the World war swept away all smaller misunderstandings and all Channel islanders, with the rest of Britains sons, became brothers-in: safe for a woman without an escort Your mere presence will be sufficient protection, however; It is not necessary that you encounter li'ni.

But Its cliffs and bays are magnificent, and Moulin Huet Is perhaps the most lovely spot In the Islands. There are still to be found some wooden walks and lanes, old stone walls and arched gateways, which are as yet unmarred by the utilitarian demands of modem agriculture and Industry. Saint Peter port, built on the side of a hill, retains a certain amount of Its former .picturesqueness ; It Is traversed by a curious succession of long granite stairways, and with its high houses, has a foreign appearance Caudebec sur les eqaules de Harfleur," as Vacquerle dpscribed It when on a visit to Victor Hugo, who was then living In the Islands as an exile from France. It was during the great Frenchmans residence in Guernsey that, he wrote much of his poetry and three of his n novels Les Mlserables," The Man Who Laughs and The Tollers of the Sea. In commemoration of his exile the French nation brought ovpr and erected a statue to his memory in July, 1914. Alderney, Key to the Channel. The lesser islands, Alderney, Sark, Herm and Jethou, are comprised In the bailiwick of Guernsey. Alderney, described by Napoleon as the shield of England, wag considered, In the days before aircraft, submae rines and guns had revolutionized warfare, to be the key of the channel. Consequently, during the Napoleonic wars, forts were erected here by the British government at vast expense. Rugged and Inhospitable as the Island looks to the wayfarer, It has a savage, untamed beauty denied to the other Islands. It Is surrounded by the most dangerous currents and wildest seas In the English channel. Seven miles west of Alderney lie the famous Casquet rocks, where the carcases of many tall ships He buried." No one can claim to have seen the Channel Islands until he has seen Sark, which is an epitome of the beauty of them all. It contains the wooded valleys of Jersey, the brild liant cliffs of Guernsey, and Its own carpet of wild flowers And while the natural magic of its beauty Is supplemented, to the g lnltate, by the powers of somg of the old inhabitants. The 'two remaining islands of the archipelago are Herm and Jethou, which lie between Sark and Guernsey. They belong to the crown, having gone through many vicissitudes and having passed through a great variety of hands. greeh-house- red-roofe- d best-know- Incident That Wat Embarraaaing, though It Atao Had an Amusing Side to It Al- Some years ago, while living In tha suburbs, we kept a few chickens; our neighbors also had chickens.
