Alison looked at him speculatlve- ly "Now, let me see what it can be," she said In mocking tones. '|Has she found 'out your address'..;and threatened to bring an action for breach of promise? Or has.some long-suffering tailor installed a solid and unsympathetic bailiff in your rooms? No, I don't think that it's either of those things, somehow. I know! It's something* to do with Daphne's diamonds:" Dick glanced furtively round the room. As it happened there was nobody, he knew at any of the surrounding tables. "YouVe hit it, All-, son," he replied, quietly. "There has been a most extraordinary development of that business; Now, look here. If I'm to do any good,?, it is essential that nobody .should know the, reason for my departure; ;1 want you not to say] .a word to anybody, of what you haye''guess?d."- · '- .Alison nodded. "Very well," she said. "I. won't even ask you anv questions. But 'there's just this," Dick. I'm a person to be trusted. I've done -lots of little confidential jobs for father, when he was anxious for ho one to know of his finds until the results were published. If you want anybody in London to lend you-a hand, you've only got to drop! a line to me." · "Good girl!" exclaimed Dick. "To tell you.'the truth','.-I don't want Daphne _to know anything yet, and if I say a word to Hardway; he's sure to blurt it out to her., I don't want even the police'to know what I'm iip to; they might think it their duty, to interfere. I want to have a shot at something on my"own." "How delightfully thrilling!" exclaimed Aliaon, "I'd love to be In at the death, but I suppose you won't let me. But-remember, if you want to communicate with anybody, I'm t h e girl." . . · J " "I shall rememb'er that," replied Dick gravely.- And there was some- :hing- in his voice which made Alison look swiftly down to her plate and take a sudden interest in her food. . . . . . . . . . . . .

With hogs, also back at 1924 levels. all the important classes of livestock are selling at thS-lowest prices in. six years, with-the single exception of lambs, which are 25 to 50 cents higher than last week. . · -.'.' /Strictly good weighty steers were in constant demand by both shfp- Pfrs and small packers, so that they were hold e.ven for the week- Their top 'was $11.25, the high price of the entire market; Bast : y earl ings sold only at 57.25 to $9.50, 25 to 50 cents off. -Such liquidation was believed to Indicate lack of confidence in the future, on the ,part of the country. Fat cows, cutters, and bulls were steady for the week but all heifers closed 25 to 50 cents higher .than the low point of last week; - ' . Hardly-enough hogs were on sale today to bring out buyers and there were', none available to; · test top prices.

General range of prices took another tumble this week and the average now stands at 56.89, against $7.25 last Saturday. Top quotations for ' f a t lambs stand 30 cents hipher than last Saturday, with ?9.15 paid yesterday, against $8.85 a week ago, and practically all fat lambs of all, weights followed this gain.
