"Now, how in* Hadjis,", wondered he, "could I forgeJ that?" •. He meant the first million. While with Kathleen that morning. the thought; of it had occurred and re-occurred .to Him, but' always at Inopportune moments, and when-finally the right time had arrived it 'slumbered in the meshes of his mind.. - .'... "Til tell her on .Wednesday;". he concluded; and promptly was .swallowed up in the rush of the day's business. The boy handed him a scrap of paper on which was written with-a lead pencil: •. . . "I must see you at once.—Esther." "Tell her I can't see .her!" and he •crunched the paper between his fingers and shot it angrily, out an open win- "dow. .Before the lad reached the door le checked him. -less 'Tiarshly, with: •"Explain to her. Tommy, that I am extremely busy, and ask -her to call again." " ,» . Dismissing the incident completely from his mind, he gathered up. the • «heaf of.letters. An altercation arose to the outer office. The door was flung open. Esther 'entered. Seeing the stenographer, she held the door open. "I want to see you alone, Daniel," said Esther quietly. Fitzhugh motioned to his employees to go, and closed the door after him. "Well? What is it?" He remained . . standing near the door, the sheaf of letters clutched with an iron grip in his right hand. He was striving hard • to control his mounting temper^ CnbidBen, she sat down. Ee did not resume his seat There was an awkward pause. '"This may be the last time," she began, choosing her words carefully, "that we shall see each other. I am going away tonight. I came, all the . way from Paterson. I thought 1 would tell you—good-by." She stood up so that slie faced him. She looked at him fixedly. "-Night before ' last, Daniel, in Paterson. I walked my room for hours. I was try- Ing to decide something, Daniel. .Something very .bard. A secret—a'ter- rible secret—and I wanted to tell you. But I couldn't decide." ' "Have you decided?"—impatiently. "Quite. I shouldn't tell you. I have reasoned it cut again and again. You shouldn't know. But I want you to .know! And. Daniel"—reaching up . suddenly, she-rested her hands on his shoulders, and when her large, sad jeyes lifted to his It struck him afresh Jhow like a martyr she seemed—"Daniel,-1 have been chosen to remove our ambassador." He. tensed, with a quick Intake of breath. "Ton mean—what d'you mean? You're not—you don't intend—" "It Is decreed he must die tomorrow. /• His living is Inimical to the .Cause. He is false to Russia." "Andl'yo^lntezfd'doing it?" He seized her wrists, gripped them j Oil she winced. His voice was "as steel s.trn spme'body's Tcnocklifg, Then came back to her. . . .

She sat down 'very slowly. For a few moments she seemed stricken dumb. Then: . "To—to that—" "To her you saw me with at the opera." "When?" she asked.. "When?" . "We • became engaged last March. The second of last March." "The second' of last March." She repeated the words dully, pressing her hand to her forehead. "The second of last—why, D-Daniel, don't you remember? That is the day we first met each other. ' Don't you remember, Daniel?" — laughing shrilly — "the crowds, and how I was-swept into your arms, and the speeches you made, "first in the street, and then—" "Esther! Esther!
