Desdemona talked then and there,
and Daniel tried to, but to little

were being borne away, in the tri
umphant clutches of the law.
When Ginger and Tony returned
to the camp from their breakfast,
not a little puzzled that the others
had not joined them, it was to find
Casanova, the cat, alone of their
fellow-passengers, awaiting them.
Casanova, and the tourist camp pro
prietor, by now recovered from his
shock, and bursting with excitement.
"Where's everybody?" demanded
"In jail, I guess. A hull posse of
officers came up in two cars, and
arrested the lot of them," said the
other, chewing vigorously. "Least
ways, I saw them take the fat lady
and the bald-headed man with them.
I guess that other couple went
along, too. They ain't nowhere

Ginger and Tony looked at each
"The Bonkheer diamond!" she
gasped. "It must be!"
"Crooks and we were helping
them get away!" Tony took a deep
breath. "Whew!" It ' lucky we were
having breakfast. They might have
run us in, with the rest on a
charge of being accessories." He
smiled, then. "Of course, we could
have explained who we were."

claimed Ginger. She was very nerv
ous. "Suppose they come back for

us a day it may be too late lor
"My hunch is to get going, while
the going's good!" was Tony's opin

"What about the Evergreens?"

hunch. Look their baggage is gone."

Ginger. "Now that we're alone

the surprise which the morning's
incident had given them, and had
crossed the Carolina border when
the second thunderbolt struck. For
it was on the road to Fredericks
burg that Fate, on a motor-cycle,
Tony mindful of their financial
state, always drove with a watchful
eye on the rear-vision mirror, and
on the speedometer. It was with
some surprise, then, that he saw the
law take their trail, overtake the
bus and signal them to stop. Tony
applied the brakes and exchanged
an apprehensive look with Ginger.
Were the authorities trying to rope
them in with the diamond thieves?
Ginger, thinking of Miami and a
job, felt her heart in her throat as
the cycle cop dismounted and walk'
ed over to them. He was a lanky,
cadaverous-looking individual with
a draw and a mustache that droop
ed. Before he spoke he glanced up
at the "Washington Square" sign
above the windshield.
"You f oiks from New York, ain't

taken by surprise.

"What do you want with Miss
Drake?" asked Tony.
"It ain't only this young woman
I'm wanting you re in this too,
said the Law. And spat. "You
admit that you're still a miss so I
guess you ain't claiming you're thiB

"Certainly not!" exclaimed Gin

that is of yours, or any "
"Did you folks ever hear of a law
called the Mann Act ?" he inquired,
"Mann Act!" Tony was both
nmuseH and irritated. And hot a
little relieved; so it was not the dia

moth-eaten old gag still alive?"
"Alive enough to put you behind
the bars for taking a woman not
your wife across a state border!"
Tony said: "But that's ridicu

man takes a woman across a state
