In spite of the Scotch thrift that had amasseil his mlUtons he had Hhernlly recognized not only my recent �er%'lce to (iranby & Co.. hut the genllp .shove with which 1 had tobogganed hl.s dangliler Inio s.i-clety and a conKequeuL engagcoieut to young I laity Schuyler. "Of course,'* Ijane was telling me, "I know that in asking you I have colossal newspaper nerve. f*ociall\ you're several strata above me, but, with all due mod esty, I'm going to prove to you, dear, that you've got to go deep down to find pure gold. You don't omc across It unalloyed In the upper crnat." He stopped to let mo agree v ith him. Then his glance indlgnniuly trailed mine to the iieiphhnring table. 'Are you aware," he added In an injured tone, "that riJ4 proiios-ing to you?' Winning the Secret. "Are you aware," I amplified wickedly, sotio voce, "that you're proposing to a meddler and Ihat .lost at the moment she's deeply concerned !� n mnu in l>;�k of you?" Lane did nut change his position. He even continued to execute plan,s-only lils ears Jerked �p like a terrier's. After a second he turned to summon a waiter, stealing a glance meanwhile at tlie adjoliiiiig tabic. "Sly oid Josl Hunt:" Ho leaned h.acl; smiling In bis chatr. Bat suddenly he came forward again, as close to mo os the table would pernill. "Talk to me," he spoke In a confldentlal undertone, "a.s hard as you can. 1 t.ant to hoar wliat she's saying to him." T stared at him in ainnzement. Then my glance Parted to the womau with ,Toslah Hunt. She was (lending toward Ulm, Uov heavy eyes lint wUh fire, Uer iilJS forming phrases as if with tense effort. Only tlirod words, hurled a,s they were at the man, came �cross to me. "- will ruin you," she said, then stopped as he raised n warning hand. Ijbdc's chair scraped cautiously over the floor atfd he ottled back still more comfortably Into it, his broad shoulders in close touch with the narrow pair liehliKl them. I wailed Impatiently, straining every nerve, I I on feus, to catch more of the conversation. .Meddling, you see. becomes a halill before you know it. 1 had taken to stirring the r(Mnaln.4 of my second Turkish coffee when the two at the adjoiniiig table rose to leave. Thi! woman slowly bmtoued hvr tljiUl little coat and drew a heavily figured veil over her Ijietty face. Then they hurried up the short tllght of stairs leading to the entrance near which we were seated. "I don't think," I oliserved, "that he was an.xious to 111' seen." "1 should say not," and Lane gave a broad smile of �.-itlsfact.lon. "He wouldn't have brought the woman Ji.'re, I dare say, if she b�dn't insisted. He's afraid t,( her." ".Vfrnid"' 1 exclaimed.
