One day the Pogodins came
home with a child. They said they
had adopted her.
That evening while Mr. Pataky
was at the Folies Caprice seeing a
musical work, the Pogodins had
made haste to pack up their belong-
ings and ship them to the station.
Mr. Pataky being away from home
did not learn which of the stations
they went to, and from.
In answer to Jebb’s frantic de-
mands for a guess as to the probable
destination of the couple, Mr. Pa-
taky pulled out a business card, the
duplicate of the one Jebb already
had. Mr. Pogodin was in business
both in Paris and in Warsaw. He
had not done well in Pest.
“I am sure you find them in Paris
or in Warsaw, if maybe they ain’t
gone to some other place.”
To cofhe to this Y-shaped trail
and realize that whichever way he
took he would wish he had taken
the other; and that every day of de-
lay increased the difficulty and
blurred the track, was maddening
to Jebb. He gave Pataky the mon-
ey for Cynthia’s little destructions
and got rid of him with curt phrases.
Wnen Jebb reached Vienna the
next morning and went into the
breakfast-room he found Miruma
waiting for him. Her face was lumi-
nous with welcome, but it turned
gloomy as she cried:
“You deed not finded the Cynthia
child. Aman! aman!”
He told the story briefly, hastily
explained his new dilemma. She
solved it in one instant:
“Leesten.—Do you speak Polish or
Mosgovian?” He shook his head.
Then she ran on, eyes flashing with
delight over her scheme:
“I am cherkes-Circassian born,
and I learn some Russian as child,
before I am taked to Turkey.
“But leesten? You shall go to Par-
is and look, and I shall go to War-
saw. The one who finds the child
feerst telegraphs the other. I bet
you I gone to find her the sheker-
buli—the sugar lump feerst. What
By this time the Ludlams met in
the breakfast-room and came over
to their table. The story and the
scheme told all over again enrap-
tured sister Jennie and even opened
the iat eyes of brother Charles. ._Aj»

a much traveled woman, sister Jen-
nie scoffed at the idea of any diffi-
culty in Miruma’s way.
Brother Charles volunteered to get
the passport from the American con-
sul in Vienna. An hour later he
came back with it boastfully:
“It isn’t everybody that could have
got this,” he said; “I had presence
of miqd enough to realize that if I
said Mme. Janghir was a Turkish
lady there’d be all sorts of red tape.
So I said she was an American.”
“Well, she is, by intention,” said
sister Jennie. Miruma blushed and
The Warsaw train left at noon
and required seventeen hours for the
journey. Jebb’s train to Paris took
twenty-seven hours, and he was
weary of globe-trotting.
There was so little time to get
Miruma aboard her train, and there
were so many instructions to give
her, that leisure was left to talk
of nothing else. And Jebb was sad-
ly glad of this; it saved him from
the torment of restraining his words
Jebb’s mood was funereal when
he returned to 'his hotel. In his
absence the Ludlams had decided to
go to Paris by the same train—a
conspiracy hatched by sister Jennie
to console him.
When dinner was finished sister
Jennie told Charles to go to the
smoking-compartment, and stay
there; and she asked Jebb to come
back after the expiration of one ci-
gar. As soon as he had accom-
plished his cigar he wandered back
to sister Jennie. Then she unfolded
“When I first saw you in Vienna
the other day, and thought you were
very rich, I toid you I wanted more
of your help, you remember?” Jebb
smiled. “Now that I find you are
not an idle millionaire, but a keen
and brilliant surgeon—oh, don’t lift
your hand—it gives you away as a
surgeon, and Miruma has told me of
your miracles in—wherever it was.
“I spoke to you of my poor brother
Wentworth. Before I die I want to
see a memorial of that beautiful
soul, cursed through no fault of his
own, by an inheritance from poor
ancestors that had heaven knows
what sorrows or failure to drive
them to despair. My poor, dear
brother was started wrong, he could
never hope to be what he ought to
“So I thought that a hospital for
correcting the malformations and
the inherited handicaps of little chil-
dren would be about as good a me-
morial for poor Wentworth as I
“And I wanted a large part of its
work to be experimental. I want it
to keep investigating, finding new
methods, pushing into the dark. You
understand, don’t you?”
“That’s about all I understand to
this world, Miss Ludlam,” Jebb ex-
claimed with unusual fervor for
him. “That’s my religion, and the
closest I can come to a prayer is
an operation. And as for experi-
menting—it’s the crying need of the
world, Miss Ludlam. If only s man
could have a lot more money to
spend and all his time to devote
to exploring. Experimental surgery
is the new world; it’s unbounded,
undreamed of—why, my God, it’s
He collapsed in full flight,
ashamed of his own excitement, but
sister Jennie cried: “Don’t mind
me—I’m used to Charlie. I love to
hear you swear. It shows you have
the frenzy that a man needs to be
great. You are the man I need to
help me found this memorial. It
must be just a little different from
those that are already established;
it must—but you know so much bet-
ter than I do what is needed. Won’t
you please—please—take charge of
it for me!”
Jebb almost fainted at this gift,
so great he had never even dreamed

When the Nord-Express pulled in
at the station, Jebb ran through the

as before, saw him first and set up
The child’s first distinguishable

And before anything else could be
told Jebb had to ransack his excited
brain for a catalogue of gifts that
would have foundered the reindeers
of Santa Claus himself.
And after this, Cynthia must tell
her own adventures with the Pogo-
dins, and she must show off the
Russian she had learned and the
Polish words, and what a nice wom-
an Mme. Pogodin was—though not
half so nice as Aunt Miruma.
In fact, there was no silencing the
child till fatigue put her to sleep—
or at least they supposed she was
“And now, hanim effendim—Miru-
ma—tell me how you managed to
find her—you wonderful, angelic—”
he stopped short on the brink of a
“Oh, eet ees such a long story.
They were not hard to find, the Po-
godins, but they refuse to geeve up
the baby. They say she is their
own, and they defy me to proof she
is somebody's who is in America.
So I go away much afraided. But
I come back and wait in the street.
Not till next morning Cynthia comes
out alone to play and I— stealed her
from the stealers—oh, how I runs!
From the depths of his soul Jebb
sighed. It seemed impossible to
keep his love secret any longer. He
had no right to deny her that trib-
ute. It was her privilege to know
that he loved her enough to relin-
quish her for her own sake.
And then with much hesitation,
his mouth full of the ashes of con-
fession, he began to tell her of his
“Do not tell it me,” she said, "It
hoorts you, and I know it all many
days. Seester Jennie tells it, and it
makes me such joy to theenk that
you have been shrinking from me
not because you did hated me, but
because you did loved me all thees
“Then you understand why I kept
"And why I can never ask you
to be my—my wife?”
"No. Leesten, Jebb Effendim, you
theenk you have another self that
you cannot keel. I theenk you can,
weet the help of Allah and weet my
love to make you a home. Even if
you cannot keel that Meester Pier-
pont, still when you are that man
I could keep you close, take care
of you, save you from to run allover
the world, and, perhaps some day
be made dead in some tarrible
place. If I should be your wife I
should guard you and when the long
seeckness was over you should wake
back to yourself in your own home
and in my arms always. Then soon,
I know, I know Allah would answer
such prayer from two such lovers,
soon the other self comes less and
less often, stays less and less long.
That could be—couldn’t eet?”
“Yes, it could be—it would be, if—
but I love you too much to let you
“Hush, Jebb Effendim. I theenk
you want me for wife—yes?”
Jebb only cast his eyes up in de-
spair of words to express this de-
“Then—if thees time instead of to
be gived by somebody to somebody,
I give myself for a gift—then—then
—oh, should the gift be refused?—
should you ruin my life forever?—
should you—oh should you make me
do all the proposing?”
Those compartment-cars are very
cosy for settling disputes of this
sort. And Cynthia was asleep—or
at least they thought she was asleep.

The first place Jebb sought in
Paris was the office of the Machines-
a-ecrire Flaubert. The president and
his son received him and. recog-
nized the name of Nikolai Pogodin
with contrasting feelings. The
younger member of the firm
laughed; the elder swore.
Mr. Pogodin, they said, had been
their agent, but his interest in the
race tracks of various capitals had
mixed up his accounts so that they
had regretfully erased him from
The Flauberts promised Jebb any
information in their power, but they

saw, or that he would remain any-
Jebb went back to his hotel to tell
sister Jennie that he resigned his
stewardship in her great project.
He must set out on a dismal journey
to Poland. But sister Jennie was
not to be found. She was shopping
in the Rue de la Paix. He went to
his own room and was dismally
flinging his things into his suitcase
when a telegram was brought to his

Alvin Hamer, Detroit bookseller,
has discovered a collection of let-
ters written by the five sons of
Josiah Colburn, a dour Yankee of
the early Nineteenth century, to let
us know the first of the 1800s was
not altogether a time of the grand
gesture and political pow-wow.
These were men whose letters re-
veal that they were hard-working
journeymen and laborers and sea-
farers whose main concern was not
with the dangers of frontier life, but
with the ordinary business of get-
ting jobs and founding homes.
Out of New York state these boys
came, to spread as far north as On-

It was Jeremiah who wrote of the
boom which followed the war in
Buffalo, only to complain three
years later that jobs were hard to
find. He had just finished his ap-
prenticeship as a carpenter and was
starting out on his own.
“I am this (lay pretty good look-

TN this, her ninth overwhelmingly popular serial, .
X Lida Larrimore has again written a story that is
destined to be read and re-read by thousands of j
delighted readers everywhere. It is the story of
Gabriella Graham—Gay for short—who was marry-
ing wealthy Todd Janeway because it was expected
of her, and because, she told herself, she really *
wanted to. But she was surprised and disturbed by
the effect that John Houghton, a young doctor, had
upon her. Was he the man she should be marrying,
or was it a temporary infatuation! Gay knew she
must decide for herself. That decision makes one
of the most appealing stories you’ve ever read!
