great show of politeness. "I am sorry you will have a lonely ride." "Good-by," muttered Denton, and the stage rolled on. "He wanted to get out and follow us back," said Oliver, "but he couldn't think of any excuse." "We have got rid of him,"

But prudence withheld him. It was by no means certain that he had been recognized. Very probably Bundy really went back on account of some slight matter which he had forgotten. Denton was of opinion that his visit to Kelso was not connected with the interest of his employer. Therefore he decided to return to Chicago and await the reappearance of Oliver and Bundy. Undoubtedly they would return to the same hotel where they had been stopping. By the time he took his seat in the car he was in quite a philosophical frame of mind, and reconciled to the turn that events had taken.
