He was there first, however, arid stood with his back against it, barring her way. • • "Ion will net leave this office," he declared, "until—" • "Open that door!" "—until you listen to reason." "Open that door, open that door! Til scream!'.' "Ton may go when you've promised me—" "Open that door 1" . . /. s Out of all-patience, angry and humiliated, he threw the door 'open, and saw her run the gaping gauntlet in the outer office. He closed tl'id -door quietly and a messenger. His nostrils were dilated, his face white, his lower front .leetn were locked firmly over the upper-ones." He~snt at h'is desk, took .a pad of telegraph forms fro.m . a drawer, ind-with a baud as . steady as the mahogany on which it rested he wrote the following, address- Ing .It "Secret Service:" "A demented woman who imagines she has been •RTOnced by the Russian aml>««sorior W1U arrive in YPashington from Chlca- 'fo.

F." _ Some while after five o'clock Fitzhugh sat at the telephone on his locked desk, his hat on, an uniighted cigar between his teeth, delivering the customary order for violets. With a-final ud- ; inonition to the florist to send nothing except the best, he "hung up." As he / lighted his cigar and swung out of his office he met a messenger, who handed him a square envelope. Embossed on the back was "One Thousand Lake Shore Drive," and it contained a very brief and formal request, for an immediate call from him at that address. - The chauffeur was waiting with the car in Adams street. Fitzhugh settled back comfortably in the cushioned seat as the chauffeur picked his way - through the mass of traffic, and all the cares, and worries of that busy day slipped gratefully from him, leaving him serene with contentment. He was received in. the library of -Mr. and Mrs. Otis. TheVe was no sign of Kathleen; and a glance at her pa' rents sufficed to apprise him he was In for a disagreeable. time. -They remained standing after he entered; nor was he asked to sit down. Mrs. Otis\ haughtily stationed as far from him as the large room would- permit, had appointed herself spokeswoman. | : "Our daughter," said she, lifting a j formidable lorgnette to her eyes and staring at him as though he were the ' garbage man. "has informed us of her unfortunate alliance with you." . He bowed respectfully. "I need bardly say to you"—and her head raised higher, her hauteur waxed • stiff—"that you must consider this engagement broken. Furthermore, you •will regard your underhanded 'acquaintance with our daughter as though it had never been.. All com- Jnunicatton^with her of whatever nature must cease instantly. That, I believe, is all." If Mrs. Otis had expected to inflict a shock she triumphed amply. If she tad hoped to -witness its manifestation ehe was woefully disappointed. The crash struck its victim as a thunderbolt; but beyond a sudden tension that gripped every muscle of him, he betrayed never a sign of the impact. - Outwardly he was almost'if not quite as.self-possessed as when he entered the house. ."Miss Otis—does she know this?" ', "What a Question 1" she gasped. I ,"Why, ii is she who—" "Don't!" He started forward im- •pulsivelK the blood mounting hotly to his face. .But ere his composure departed irretrievably—"I beg your'par- don. May I know the reason?" 'fThe reason," she said icily, wishing his discomfiture ' were more pronounced, "is disgraceful. Most dis- /graceful"—lunging with the superla- ''tive. "Today-—this very afternoon, in fact—your—I——" She floundered helplessly 'in n muddle of words. The starched formality she had deemed sufficient to crush the presumption of any man -wilted before his steady gaze, his calm sternness. She turned aix pealingly to her husband, who, having held a very unwilling silence at TPitzhugh crossed to the hall-door ind listened. • From somewhere above, unbridled 'and., spasmodic, though faint by the distance, .came the, hysterical .sobbing of a girl. Kathleeji! 'With an imprecation on his tongue, Jie bouriSed up the staircase—just as Noonau appeared in answer to , the summons. His coat clutched from- behind, Fitzhugh turned, jerked free and, with a single pash of his flat hand, sent the butler reeling backward to the'hall below. .He leaped up the few remaining steps to the second- floor, strode to a door standing' ajar and knocked. The girlish weeping In the room beyond was muffled. He -knocked again. The sobbing abated, stopped. A' third time he knocked and, receiving no response. save silence, thrust tie door open, entered, closed the door behind turn. It was Kathleen's boudoir. She was seated in a chair, weeping,., with her hands hysterically covering her face; but ^immediately on seeing"'him she -jumped up and started for an adjoining room, calling-hastily to.her maid. And the next instant—she was held, struggling,, palpitating, in the. hot embrace of. his arm, and his kisses showered . upon her lips with a delirious passion that seared as heated metal.

The note of'hate in her voice cooled his madness. He released her. "So you do believe it." And he became aware that her father, at his wits' end how to handle the outrage, was pelting him with blows and kicks. He shook off the roan as a Newfoundland would a Pomeranian.
