II. . Long months of reflection convinc ed Lionel-Burton that he had been foolish in flinging down the gage of battle to i Gray don openly. A frontal attack :on a powerfully-entrenched enemy might be grandly quixotic; but it| was not'war. He discovered that the rules ,of the game .were elastic, al lowing many variations in tactics, and that, men judged by results only. As he digested these cynical truths, as similating them to the hard facts of life, he found that back of all his ob servations lay an inflexible desire to get even with his enemy. By .slow stages he had' drifted to New York, where he allowed his for mer clean shaven countenance to sport an iron-grey growth of beard. Then chance, twelve months later, flung him on speaking terms with Gray don: It happened in the corridor of a fashionable hotel, where the great men merely inquired of Burton the lo cality of the manager's office. The desired information was given readily—almost before recognition be canio definite; but th...
