Miss Imogene of course was furious. Therefore she wrote a doxen let- ters to the afflicted martyr, which ebt succeeded In smuggling to ex- pressing her sentiments in far wanner phrases than otherwise might been dictated by discretion or were Justified by the facts of the case. She felt that her youthful dear Roderick's leg, to say nothing of bis broken irremediably, though the human heart requires a longer time to heal than fractured llnib or cranium. But time cured both afflic- tiong, and it came about la this wise: A few days following Mr recovery Mr. Fitzgeorge left town between two trains. Many whisperings'want around i as to the cause of this de- i parture, and many straage coincl- i dences were noted. AmoBg them was i the somewhat prominent mention of n i merchant's safe discovered the morn- Ing after his departure in a condition resembling Miss broken i heart Of all this, howevar, Miss Chlt- j tendon knew nothing, and for many I days she mourned. Of coarse dear Roderick knew nothing about the affair j and only left Morristown because bis j leave of absence bad expired or be- i cause he was angry at the residents or j whatever his reason. Miss Imo- j gene was sure It was a good one. i However that might ba, from Mr. I Fltzgeorge's point-of view It was an imperative one.

I In case she found it inconvenient he j still had in his possession a dozen let- Iters which would not look well if printed in the newspapers. In case she idld find it convenient to make the Van, which, knowing her generous na- ture, her correspondent did not doubt, she was first to tie a piece of white string on the left post of the Ren- front gate as a signal of as- sent, then open the library window at 8 o'clock on Friday night, when Mr. Fitzgeorge would enter, exchange her letters for the sum above mentioned and bid her an eternal farewell. If Miss Chitteudon played him Which perish the friend had copies of said correspondence walcft immediately be published, to- gether with the garbled details of the former romance, a condition undesira- ble for a lady so widely known in the social world. The letter ended with the hope that Miss Chittendon was en- Joying good health and spirits and that she might persuade herself to meet him on Friday, as requested. To say that Miss Imogene was terri- fied would be putting it mildly. Her resulting condition bordered upon complete collapse, mental and phys- ical. "Oh, Harriet, she sobbed- "Whatever shall J "My returned her friend as she bathed the sufferer's temples with cologne, "it is perfectly simple. You need give yourself no uneasiness. Fa- ther will quietly put the matter In the hands of the police. We will then tie the white string on the gatepost, and this wretch enters the library window he .will find himself in the arms of our officers, and we will aot only have the letters, but the man." Miss plan was based upon wisdom and sound common sense, yet to the frightened Miss Imo- gene It was the worst possible thing to do. She felt certain that if caught the man would put his threat into exe- cution and expose the copies of her letters to the eager gaze of society. To prevent such a happening she would gladly pay flv.e times the sum demand- ed. Therefore sne decided hysterical- ly that Harriet's plan was out' of the question. "Oh. Harriet, dear." she wailed, "you don't know how silly my letters were, and I'd go through anything to get them back again. Why. the pet names I called that creature good gracious. were positively "What did you call asked Miss Renwyck. humorously Interested In this phase of the romance. 'Roddy-poddykius' con-, fessed the debutante, with a vivid blush: "Theu there were a whoie lot more like that uivJ dar- ling. I'd rather not tell them even to you. I should die of shame if Mr. Van der Awe or Lord Croyland or any one knew." Miss Kenwyck smiled, while the in- discreet Juliet went on tying her hand- kerchief into -hard, wet knots. "I've Just got to see him, Harriet I know I -shall be just scared to death; but, no matter what you say, I'll not allow you to tell n slugle solitary and if I'm found dead on the library floor In the morning nobody will care The sufferer's state now became so alarming that friend was forced to suggest another plan. It was against her better Judgment, but something had to be done at once, for otherwise Miss Imogene would never be in a condition to act the part of the bird in the play that evening. she said sternly, "stop cryjaii this instant nnd listen to me.
