"There are two rooms empty—Nos. 255 and 270." "1 guess I'll take 270, Seventy's my lucky number," said Mr. Stormer. The number of Audrey's room was 269.

The house is to be watched, a man remaining on the roof, and one of our two best men always to be on the heels of—Slick Smith. You understand?" "Yes, sir." "It's too bad Slick should have to be trailed this way, but I'm.taking no risks. Cable me if anything develops." Willitt made a note of the order. "By the way, how do we come"— Stormer frowned up at the other— "how did we come to be acting for Marshall at all?" "He wanted a girl traced and came to us " Stormer smacked the table with his hand, "Of course—the girl! Did you ever discover what was behind his interest in Miss Bedford?" Willitt shook his head. "No, sir-; he was that kind of a man. You remember I told you he wanted me to bring her to dinner with him? I don't think there was any other interest." "Don't you?" Stormer emphasized the first word. "That is surely strange —wanting that girl located. Her name is Bedford, I suppose?" Willitt smiled. "You've asked me that before. Yes, sir. She was very well known in the village of Fontwell—lived there all her life practically." "And Elton—was her maiden name Bedford?" Yes, sir; she was married in that name." "H'm!" Mr. Stormer had a trick of sweeping tho palm of his hand across his mouth when he was perplexed. I hoped—however. The girl's in town now, eh? Staying at the Regency, your report sair, Hum!" He beat a tattoo on the desk with his pencil. ••• Ever thought of pulling her into this business? Wo want a woman sleuth badly, and she's the kind who'd pay for dressing. Malpas' secretary too! She's out of a Job, isn't she?" I've got an idea that Shannon is swoet on her," said Willitt. "Oh?" Mr. Stormer was not Impressed. "Any man is sweet on a good- looking girl. There's nothing to it." He looked at the telephone thoughtfully and pulled it toward him. "I'd like to talk to this man Shannon" 1 he said. "Where will I get him?" Willitt opened a little pocket book and searched its pages. "Hero are two numbers, the first is his Hat, the second is his office. I think you're more likely to get him at the flat. Stormer called the flat without success. He then tried the treasury number which- connected him with Scotland yard. "Capt. Shannon has gone home; he has been gone ten minutes." "We'll try the flat aguin," said the detective chief, and this time he had better success, for Dick had just come In. "It's Stormer speaking. That Capt. ,Shannon?" CHAPTER XXXVIII. STORMER'S. Stormer's Detective agency occupied the flrat floor of a new city building. That it was a detective agency at all was not apparent, either from the discreet inscription on its doors or from the indication In the hall, which said simply "Stormer's" and left the curious to guess in what branch of commerce Stormer'B was engaged. That morning John Stormer paid one of his fugitive visits to his English headquarters. He came, as usual, through his own private door and the nrst intimation Willitt had that his chief was in the building was when the buzzer on his desk purred angrily. He passed down the corridor, unlocked the door of the sanctum and went in. Mr. Stromer, his derby hat on the back of his head, an unlighted cigar between his strong white teeth, sprawled in his office chair with an open copy of the Times in his hand. "Give me an English newspaper for news'evcry time," he said with a sigh. "Do you know, Willitt, that it will be fair but colder, that there's a depression to the southwest of Ireland and another depression to the northeast of Ireland that will probably cause rain in the west of England? Do you know that visibility is good and that the sea crossing is rough? The newspapers over here give more space to the veather than we give to a presidential election." He put the newspaper down on the loor, fixed pince-nez on his broad nose nd looked at his subordinate. "What's doing?" he asked. "There are five new cases In this morning, sir," said Willitt. "Four of hem husband and wife stuff and one a ady who is being blackmailed by a noney lender." Stormer lit the stub of his cigar. "Don't tell me about it; let me guess," ho said. "She borrowed the noney to save a friend from em- mrrassment and her husband doesn't ike the friend." Willitt grinned. "Very nearly right, sir." "I should say it was very nearly right," said Mr. Stormer with a grimace. "Women never borrow money 'or themselves; they always borrow it 'or somebody else. There's never been a bill signed by a woman that didn't lave a halo over it. Now what's the latest from Portman square?" Willitt gave a long and accurate description of recent developments. "Last night, eh? Do you know what ;he trouble was?" 'I don't know, sir. Wllkes reported .hat Shannon came on the roof and ;hal the house was surrounded by police." "Humph!" said Stormer and there and then dismissed the mystery of Portman square and devoted his mind nnd thoughts to the routine of his business. He very seldom made his appearance in his London office, but when lie did he worked like ten men; and it was not until the city clocks were striking 9 that night that he signed his last letter. "About that business of Malpas," ho said; "the old instructions hold until 'Stormer? Oh, yes, the detective agency." "Yuh, say, Capt. Shannon, I've been able to help you from time to time— you'll remember I put you on the Slick Smith when he came east?" Dick who had forgotten that fact, laughed. "He's been an exemplary criminal since he's been on this side," he said. "That is how Slick always looks," replied Stormer dryly, "but he's making a living somehow. But that isn't what I wanted to talk to you about, captain. I understandjhat my people have got a commission from the late Mr. Marshall to watch his house. Seems fairly foolish, now he's dead, but the instructions hold, I guess; and I'd be ever so ^nuch obliged to you if you'd give my. men a little consideration. One of them tells me you questioned him rgiht on the roof of this house in Portman square, and certainly it looks a little unnecessary. What I want to say is that I've given orders that they are to give the police any help they, can, and to put no obstacles in their way." "That is very kind of you, and I quite see your difficulty." Stormer smiled to himself. "I guess you don't," he said. "Have I you met the caretaker that Marshall's I ENTERTAIN FOR BRIDE. HUNTINGDON, June 6.—Mr. and Mrs. Robert Q.
