THE OCALA EVENING STAR, MONDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1913

Thi3 message, -so condensed that for
a moment Van Vechten believed it to
be in code, contained more than one
incomprehensible but none the less
pregnant item. The line of perplexity
between his brows deepened, as he
continued to stare at it, while Tom
looked on and fidgeted with curiosity.
"Withypool," Van Vechten voiced
his mystification "seems to me I've
heard that name before I'm sure I
have but hanged if I can associate it
-with anything definite. And who the
deuce is Fotheringill?"
He handed the slip of paper over to
Tom. The items began to, appear
slowly by degrees.

Tom in mock admiration, "answering
to the description of your cousin and
Mrs. Devereaux were there some time
in July. What a ripping Sherlock
Holmes you are!"
Van Vechten surveyed him with un unseeing
seeing unseeing eyes. After a moment
"Say," he began with considerable
energy. "Tom, if they were Paige
and Jo, why should it be so difficult to
determine their identities positively?
Were they trying to hide? And if so,
"You can search me," Tom offered
Van Vechten took the message and
pored over it again.
"Five hundred pounds reward!" he
groaned after a minute. "Great
Scott, Tom! How luridly the papers
will blossom now, for the blessed
puzzle is fair game at last for them.
Who has authorized anyone to offer a
reward, I'd like to know? And what
two weeks in July were these two mys mysterious

infer that they and Mrs. and Miss

"That's what it says," replied Tom.
"In a way, yes. But this sheet of de deformed

But Tom merely stood silent a sec second

"where, in heaven's name, have they

"You'll give yourself a headache if you

After some delay. Uncle Theodore's j
voice came over the wire. He also had
received the cryptic message, but cer- ;

were more or less clear to him.
The surmise respecting Fotheringill j
had been a pretty shrewd one. That j
gentleman, it appeared, was a memoer
of the firm of Hirschfield & Sons, bank bankers,
ers, bankers, the Man of Iron's principal Brit
ish representatives. He had been in-
structed to send all messages in dupli- j
cate one for the elder Van Vechten's
information, the other for Rudolph's
guidance. The latter learned further
that all other information likewise
was to be sent to him.
"Lord, Uncle Theodore!" Rudolph
lamented into the mouthpiece, "the
newspapers will now be justified in
stirring up whatever scandal they may

"No, no; of course not. It's Paige Pm

must be when she sees all the rot
that's being printed about her."
He heard the older man grunt. "A
precious lot of consideration she has
shown for our feelings," he said. "But
you are mistaken; the newspapers
may be our best allies, and it is not
good policy to antagonize them at this
"Frankly," the incisive voice went
on, "I am now exceedingly worried; if
there were not so many vital business

they involve the welfare of others I j j
would drop everything and take up j g
the search mvself. But I must leave f

Rudolph assured him on this point,
adding: "But my hands are so hope hopelessly
lessly hopelessly tied by the utter absence of a
starting-point; there is nothing to
take hold of, nowhere to begin. Why,
I haven't evolved even a tentative
theory yet. What the devil does it all
mean anyway? Have Paige and Jo Josephine
sephine Josephine both lost their minds?"
No answering oracle came over the
wire, and the Man of Iron uttered his
parting injunction: "Use your best
judgment;., spare no expense."
Van Vechten emerged from the
stuffy booth and shook his head like a j
swimmer far out at sea, who, while
not sighting land, despairs not, but
struggles bravely on. The entrance
of Mr. Flint at this critical period had
the soothing effect of a balm.- His

so methodical and unruffled, and with withal
