that tho custom of a hundred years

The success of thnt form of pun-

The 1 nspoken Question Which Ban*
ished Madge's Happiness.
At Allen Drake's levelation, Lilllanj
turned to me. kissed me warmly, and]
then taking me by tho shoulders!
held mo at arm's length and looked^
at me keenly.
"So-o!" she said, releasing
with a little shake. "That was youri
headache, was It? You worked all'
night long, didn't you? But. for th«t
love of Lulu, come over here and telL
one how you did it. I'm spavined and.
spring-halted when it comes to codo>
solving, and I'd like to know what
license you have to jump Into the^
ring and do a stunt like this. L
thought your specialty was history^
so old that it crumbles."
Beneath her raillery there ran aJ
motif of loving pride in the feat L
had accomplished, and I knew thatj
my generous, big-hearted friend was
far more pleased at my success thanj
she would have been over any simH
lar triumph of her own.
That's just the trick she turned,"!
Allen Drake said. "That inside codej
was based on the Suraerian syllable]
writing only the characters werei
cut in half, and I'll apprise the as-
teroids they had me going in half
circles. There wasn't the slightest'
starting point, of course, unless you,
recognized them, which I distinctly
didn't. And then the Chief here*
opined he'd like to have his daugh-
ter take a slant at 'em. Frankly,
hid an impudent smile in my sleeve,,
for which I bog everybody's pardonj
humbly. But, believe me, I was re-
duced to pulp when Mrs. Graham
drifted in. took one look at 'em and
decided they were cuneiform. And>
believe me, she turned the trick. Tho
names and dates she supplied fit like
the paper on the wall."
Lillian whirled on him, and I saw
that his last sentence had roused
some powerful emotion in her.
Lillian Wauls Facts.
"Names!'' said tensely. "Names of
the other camp? Let me see them.'
She took the paper he held out to
her and scanned it closely, while all
of us watched her. And when sho
had finished and had returned tho
paper, I thought I detected a flash
of relief in her eyes, almost as if sho
had dreaded to find in the list some
name, the absence of which had
made her breathe more easily.
"Good work!" she commented,
"Now let me hear all about it."
Allen Drake waved his hand im-
pressively toward me, and I flushed
"It wasn't anything," I protested.
"Mr. Drake had all the code involved
except the missing names, and they
were in this syllable writing, which
I happened to recognize because for
having studied it with Prof. Sever-
ance. And once I had the completed
characters, it was really very simple,
almost like a child's rebus. Vou
I forgot my embarrassment as I
saw their absorption in my explana-
tion, and for the next half hour I
was the center of an interested cir-
cle, while 1 checked up with them
every step of the work I had done.
And when I had finished, the look oC
admiration in which there was also
distinct respect on the faces of Lil-
lian, Allen Drake and my father—
the three persons who possess the
keenest brains of my acquaintance—-
was like a draught of heady wine t<*
"Oh! I'd Love To!"
In my work with them before, t
had held the position of a humble as-
sistant and had the common sense
to know that in many things that
would still be my status. But at this
moment I was unqualifiedly one of
them, on equal terras of achievement,,
and the knowledge thrilled me.
"You may think this is all, but it
isn't," Allen Drake struck ln, when
I had finished. "Mrs. Graham mod-
estly tries to assure you that this
was a flash in a pan born of her -
knowledge of those old-time records.
But I'm here to say that she's there
four ways from the jack when it
comes to a head for codes. And they
have to be born that way. Come,
Mrs. Graham, you promised me a
slant at that 'childish nonsensical
code' you devised for your owu
amusement. Trot It out, please."
Without a word I pushed over to
him the code I had mentioned, with
the key written out. He studied it
carefully for a minute or two, then
beckoned my father and Lillian to
him. They looked over his shoulder,
while apparently oblivious to my
presence, he pointed out the different
phases of it. Then he waved his hand
toward me with a manner distinct-
ively suggestive, I told myself with
an involuntary chuckle, of a teacher
exhibiting a new pupil.
"Didn't I tell you?" he asked tri-
umphantly. "She's a natural code-
ist. How's that for a word. Chief?'
How about it, Mrs. Graham? Will
you heip me out sometimes? There
isn't much money in it, although the
rewards are sometimes quite satis-
"Oh! I'd love to!" I cried impetu-
ously. Then I stopped abruptly at
a recollection brought by the quiet
glances, evidently involuntary, which
Lillian and my father both shot at

their minds was the same question
which had sprung into mine chilling'
my enthusiasm in my newly disco\-
