The Konlggrat/^rstrasse, the lieadquarters �of that eighth wonder of the world, the' German secret service, knew of this fact. And one day 1 received an urgent message io present myself at til* Neuss-Palhia at J'otsdam to dine and hav6ean important conference with his Imperial Majtisty, Kaiser Wllhelra.  ^ , t left my apartments in Berlin,^'not far from where the now closed French l-^inbassy stands, and waited, smoking a cigar, until a dark red limousfnc, sent, by arrangement, drew out from the Sommerstrasacf, and picking nie np, whirled me- rapidly 'along the Potsdam road, f . Dined With,the Kaiser. My entjy into the palace was made secretly. A guide met me and piloted me through the room with Us walls inlaid with shells-the famous^Shell Saloon-across the marble room, along thlcltly carpeted corridors to a small reception room v/here I was ^on. chatting pleasantly, but with every nerve on the alert, to a number of other people about to dine with the head of .the Hohonzollerus.

But those of us who were -able to probe beneatii the surface felt the air was charged with subdued electricity.  " I Revolt In India. Suddenly tiie kaiser rose. .Followed by half a dozen of the most, daring spies tlie world has ever known- four men and. two beautiful women- he led.-the way to a sound-proof apartment furnUhed, In' a severely btfsiness-like manner, *iie door of which worked by an electric switch. Not even a mouse conld have gained entrance when It was shut, -and even tlie kir was artificially ppmped in ami purified by one of the keenest invent: ors in Germany. ^ For an hour tlie kaiser spoke. "Un-dev'a pbwerXuI electric bulb hung a map of Indfir, and to this he made constant/references, using a pointer witli soulidhand. The programme unfolded was an elaljprate onOj^ut rca^. reveal It In a few words. %e six ;bf us were to proceed at once to India, There hundreds upon hundreds of men and women alreafly existed who -were working for Germany. We were to oVerhaud their organizati9n, speed tip their work,'keep'' sedition seething, create-rlbts, and uprisings and by secret insidious propaganda incite the people to blpodphed, and revolt. ' I Was In Command. �With a depleted army this would mean that soldiers would have, to be dispatche'd from the European battlefield to quell the risings, and Britain's army in the field weakened. Wo were to try and initiate a movement to induce the sAfglians to invade Indlji whilst tlic war was raging in Europe, and carry otit a programme so ambi-tt6us that it could only have eman-atPd in the bjain of a madman. Because of my vast knowledge of India I.was placed in command of the party who travelled froni Berlin. iWuld'see'from the outset that the mission was doomed to failure. One of our bihereat reverses came early on In the game .when we tried to bring that simple-minded, but staunch and loyal patriot, the' Amir of Afghanistan to lead the Afghans into invading India. He practically Icicked us out of the place. Efforts to kindle strife between the Indians and the Canadian authorities in British Columhia were equally futile. True, there was.a riot. In which scores of Indians and, police were killed, but it was^subsequently found t^at the firearm* Used by . tne In- dians had -been manufactured by German agents. But'the Ringleaders wdre soon under arrest. Where Hun Gold Failed. Our reports to � Berlin as to tha progress ot_ our jnission hi India created a sensation 'in the AVilhelra-strasse. It was a record of failure after failure. The liaiser wa'e furious, lie recalled me to Berlin T commanding me to his presence, he asked for au explanation. "Sire," I said calmly. "I can supply It in a sentence. Indian loyalty to Britain and the British Empire ,'.ias triumphed over German lure and German gold; and from what I have seen, all the wealth in the Fatherinud will not buy that loyalty." He ordere' me from his presence with angry curses, and when I fouutl myself in the street outside Ahe palace I laughed long and loud. l''or in my pocket was a .cheque for a hundred thousand marks (rdughly �5000) for work whicii had proved a hideous failure. iSREPRESENTING 'S SPIRIT WEALTHY WIDOW, GATES LEAVER BIG FORTUNE NEW YORK, Nov. 29.-Mrs." Del-lora r'.
