•The fleet—did you find out about
tbe fleet?" He could not get tbe worda
out of bla mouth faat enough.
"Yea! After what you aaid. what
else could I do?"
"Quite ao!" He made no attempt to
conceal bla Inaolence. "Has It Balled?"
be asked ber impatiently.
"Where did It go? Quick, tell me!"
By word and look both he menaced
"The ueual routine!" ahe an Id non-
chalantly. "It juat apllt up Into Its
various squadrons—tbe Mediterranean,
Baltic. Black sea. South American
fleets, and so on: and they've gone to
their customary destinations."
"Sir George told you that?" The
news was almost too good to be be-
"Yea; and he never suspected I was
tbe least bit interested."
"Tbe old fool!" He told himself that
Sir George was no better than a dotard.
With such as he composing the English
admiralty tbe spy was sure that Ger-
many bad nothing to fear from tbe
Britlah lion. That much-vaunted ani-
mal's teeth seemed effectually drawn.
"What news with you?" Ethel asked
blm, innocently enough, so far as
"I have had none direct from
France," be aaid, never dreaming that
the time was past when he might de-
ceive her by that little fiction of his.
"But war baa come," be added. "Of
that I am sure."
"And England—will she enter Into
it?" she pressed him.
"With her fleet dispersed she will
not dare," he rejoined with a faint
■mile of satisfaction.
"For tbe sake of France, your coun-
try, that la a pity," Ethel pointed out
With her former doubta re-enforced
by the revelation of Larry's tale ahe
could easily pick flaws, now, In 8treat-
"Eh? Oh, yea, of course—yea!" he
hastened to assent "I must get the

Immediately he started toward tbe
doorway. But tbe girl aaid something
then that brought blm up abarpiy—
something that he waa far from ex-
pecting, at that moment when he
seemed at last to hold ber more secure-
ly than ever before.

rected blm. Quiet as waa her tone, the
words seemed to blm fairly to stab tbe
"What?" he exclaimed.
"Oh, Henry, how can you think ma

"You are mad!" ha parried. "I am

"No. no! That wa* absolutely true."
Street man releaaed her then.
"Then what do you mean?" he aaked.
So long a* ahe had not deceived blm In
thai quarter It mattered little to him
what aha might have done.
"I told you." Ethel explained. "I
told yon there waa no Englishman In
my life. I lied. There waa—a cap-
yiin in tbe Engllab army. Before I
met you we were engaged. He threw
me over for aome other woman
woman with money. ... I bate
him!" Streetman aaw no reason to
doubt her. As Ethel flung herself Into
the character of a woman acorned she
did her best to convince him of the
truth of the old adage that hell bad no
fury such aa hera. Aa she perceived
tbe success of ber ruse abe hurried on
to elaborate her fiction. "Yea, I bate
him!" ahe repeated. "I hate their
army! I bate all Englishmen. It Is
for you—for Germany I would serve,'
she told him. "That la why I have not
done more for you. I thought you
were working for France, England's
ally. England—how I hate her! I
want to see her dishonored, defeated,
ruined by your people."
"You—you?" Streetman cried, as a
great light broke over him. "And I
never dreamed!" he murmured, as he
seized both her bands. He was not
rough now—but eager. Impulsive. "Yes,
it Is true," be said then. "I am a Ger-
man. I serve the Wilhelmstrasse."
"Then let me serve It, too," Ethel
begged, much as she had besought
Larry Redmond only a short quarter of
an hour before. But then she had been
in earnest "Think what I—a woman
—could do; and a clever woman," she
urged. "Take me with you, wherever
you go. I would be useful."
The idea pleased Streetman.
"Yes, you would!" he exclaimed.
"And you shall go. You shall go with
"Where?" ahe asked him.
"To Brussels!" r:f,
"Brussels—but why there?"
He told ber then the very heart of
the German plan.
"Germany will invade France
through Belgium," he informed ber.
"Ia two weeks we shall be In Paris."
"But Germany's treaty with Bel-
glum—you forget that!" Ethel remind-
ed him. She could not believe that any
country that retained the merest ves-
tige of honor would so debase herself.
"Belgium's territory must be sacred,"
He released her hands then. He
needed even them to express bis scorn.
"Treaty? Bah! What is that—a
scrap of paper!" be cried.
"But are you surer* she pressed
him. This, she knew, was Information
—and big Information, of the greatest
moment to the English war office.
"Yea, yea! I'm aure!" he declared.
"That.la the plan worked out by tbe
great general staff, and we must go to
Belgium tonight Yon will meet me In
an hour at Charing Cross. Tomorrow
wa shall be In Brussels."
"Where shall we stay In Brussels?"

explained. "I shall pasa myself off as

Community Effort Not New.
Words come into fashion and go oat
again, much like clothes. Just now
the word "community" is very much
in vogue. We hear about community
singing societies, community forums,
community celebrations and commu-
nity projects of all sorts. Most of these
ure highly commendable.
One reaction, though, of the frequent
use of this word is to spread the Idea
that all this community enterprise Is
something new. Everything we have
done Is by way of community effort. It
is a wholesome thing to pause, some-
times, and remembeO that everything
we do Is a community thing. In the
final analysis there is no such thing
as a "self-made man." The Germans
have grown to understand this more
than we have; hence many of their
finest achievements In co-operation.
