"You adorable child," he
lured, drawing close her warm
. softness. She pressed her face
against his and made as though to
kiss the hair above his ear. Tiny
as the rustle of a mouse in a corn
crib came her whiper.
"God bless you! Bobkhine will
make a copy inside the next hour,
then he will come to send the tele
rram. I will have him do it here."
"IH go for him then," whispered
Ian. "Try to lock the servants in
ome room or closet go out when I
mention the word 'Paris'."
She treated him to a taunt smile,
and nodded, then, infinitely grace
ful, seated herself on the broad set
tee and beckoned, carelessly.
In her role of temptress she
wore a daring, filmy tea gown so
thin it betrayed the outline of
farters, but that cleverly hinted
at, rather than exposed, the charms
of her figure. But for all her easy
pose there were anxious lights in
her eyes and she was watching
him narrowly, he realized.
"You did bring the right treaty?"
she whispered anxiously.
"Yes," he assured her and bent
to shower her ringless hands with i ce. Speaking in German, he said:

hurried forward to shake hands,
his pink bald head gleaming like
that of a freshly washed baby,
"Such a pleasure to meet you
again, Monsieur Gray, he declared.
"I saw entirely too little of yon at
the dinner party last night.'
"A great pleasure." replied Ian,
conscious that Lolita von Waldeck
was watching him very intently,
He got to his feet with the delib
eration of a lazy mastiff. He was
thinking: "And this pink-faced,
hairless little man has murdered
countless hundreds of people!" It
seemed somehow utterly impos
"You have been working, Cousin
Ernst?" demanded Lolita in a low
voice that quivered just a little.
"Yes, my dear, I am glad to say
the work is done. By the way, I just
remembered. Don't you want me
to telegraph those friends of yours
Lolita nodded quickly. "Yes,
Would it be too much trouble to
send it at once?"
Bowing affably, the round little
man bustled across the room to a
telephone and, after consulting the
directory, called the telepragh of
only thing in life that really mat
ters, I've come to realize."
Side by side on the broad settee
they talked with that sublime dis
regard for time that makes life
an unreal paradise for lovers. It
seemed she could not tear her eyes
from the darkly tender face beside
her and when her small finger tips
touched that half moon scar on his
chin, he laughed and, for the first
time, told a woman how he got it
All at once there sounded a little
knock at the door. Ian had just
time to turn aside and straighten
his necktie when in strode that
curious, pink little man he had met

Ian crossed his arms and the
fingers of his right hand delved
inside the edge of his coat per

"It is such a beautiful spring
evening I think I shall take a
little drive," announced Bobkhine
through the smoke of a long ciga

to leave my fair cousin without
chaperones, n'est ce pas?"
Ian started. Something was
wrong better act. His hand start
ed towards the pistol bolstered un
der his left arm, but the voice of
Comrade Bobkhine cut in, silkily
"If you are reaching for anything
but your cigarette case," he .re
marked with a depreciating smile,
"I advise yon to wait, for you see,
my dear young American, I don't
trust you. If you move your hand
another inch to the left, why, I
shall be forced . to shoot you very
unwillingly, of coarse."
There was no doubt that Bob

to force matters under such un
favorable conditions, mere smiled

cousin Lolita to enjoy this delight

which will give me time for a drive
I have been planning to take." He
drew a long puff on his cigarette
but did not remove his suddenly
menacing pale blue eyes from Ian.
"In the brief case outside my dear
irst Secretary yon win find the
original copies of a certain docu
ment. You perceive you are now
able to return them to the safe with
no one the wiser. It will be a great
mystery how the news got out, no?
You, if you are clever, will blame
the leakage on the Hungarian nego
tiator and he, most emphatically,
will blame it on your minister."
The round little man raised his
voice. "Michan Come here! You
will learn," he continued with a
mock apologetic air. "that Michal
and Leon are excellent company.
They will be delighted to entertain
yon air, for exactly half an hour."
inwardly raging, Ian made a
little bow. No use to fight. Of
course, Lolita had given the show
away he felt disgusted, he could
not hate her for it she wasn't
looking at all happy.
"Very well, he said. "I could

In a moment more trie whole

found himself seated in an arm

Sickened, revolted at her treach- ' eeautuui and graceful as an

him. So her love had been simu

doubt, would disappear with those
two large limbed satellites who
were now mounting guard. Well,
he would wait until that Russian's

would start things.
