4
  Miss Loring,
Major Northfield's
private secretary.

  Mayme Kelso.

5
Major John Northfield,
 in charge of a U. S.
Quartermaster Depot on
 the Western Coast.

    Jack Holt.

6
   Dr. Ebell Smith,
 (Schmidt, in Germany).

An important unit in the 
 German Secret Service.

  Charles Ogle.

7
   "Mrs. Harris" -
Dr. Smith's motherly (?)
 old housekeeper; also
     in the Service.

  Raymond Hatton.

8
     Kitty Little,
with a deeply concealed
hyphen in her name, and,
in her heart a romantic 
love for the "Fatherland".

  Florence Vidor.

9
    Sessue Hayakawa
          as
Nara-Nara, in the Japanese
Secret Service. A patriot
 of Japan and sincere
   friend to America.

10
     In the
Japanese Embassy,
Washington, D. C.

11
 "I am advised that
America is to send
troops from her Western
Coast to surprise the 
Germans on the Russian 
front."

12
    In
Los Angeles.

13
 "This has come through
our agent in Holland. We'll
decode it at once."

14
 "I have sent for you
because Japan has
offered to convoy the
American transports."

15
 "New German raiders
are known to be in the
Pacific. This means
there has been a 'leak'
- in Major Northfield's 
department."

16
 "Find the traitor behind
that 'leak' before he divulges
the transports' sailing date
and route. Japan's honor
is staked upon their safety."

17
 "I suspect Northfield 
himself. Move with great
caution as the American
Secret Service declares
him above suspicion."

18
 "You've already made 
good in Northfield's outer
office. Before that transport
order arrives you must
take Miss Loring's place
in his inner office."

19
 "Miss Loring likes you.
It'll be a simple matter to
invite her - at the right 
time - to a little - er -
dinner."

20
 "I'm swamped with work
and have decided to promote
you to help me in the inner
office."

21
The following 
week a new firm
of importers takes
the office next to
  Northfield's.

22
 "That refers to the 
transports. Please put
it in the safe."

23
 "As your doctor you
know I insist on golf 
once a week."

24
 "Can't I persuade 
you to come out to the
Country Club with me
this afternoon?"

25
 "Miss Loring must dine
with us - tonight."

26
 "But I can't dine
with Dr. Smith without
a chaperon - and he
particularly mentioned
you."

27
 "Major Northfield plays
golf at the Country Club
Saturday afternoons. He
won't be in till Monday."

28
 "American girl have
beeg round eye instead 
of the beautiful slant -
but some of her have 
beauty."

29
 "I'll return the girl's 
handkerchief - and
get the measurement
on Northfield's side of
the wall."

30
 "Dr. Smith is to meet
us at the restaurant at
seven."

31
 "Put the microphone
through here."

32
On the trail.

33
 "Where does this -
Dr. Smith - live?"

34
 "I feel so - odd. I -
can't remember."

35
 "Prepare a room for 
her, Mrs. Harris. A very
interesting case - which 
I shall keep under my 
personal observation."

36
 "If you don't release 
Miss Loring, I'll call the 
police!"

37
 "You're a member 
of the German Secret 
Service. You know the 
fate of a traitor to that
Service."

38
 "If you care nothing for 
your own life - perhaps
you do for Miss Loring's."

39
 "Unless you take her 
place as Northfield's 
secretary, and bring me 
news of the transports, 
Miss Loring's case will 
end - unfortunately."

40
 "I found this on the -
er - street. I thought you 
might not like to have it - 
blowing around."

41
 "There is no need to
call anyone - I've just
been to - my doctor's."

42
 "I've been under Dr.
Ebell Smith's care for
several months."

43
Nara-Nara applies
the code in vain to 
 Dr. Smith's mail.

44
"Kitty Little left this."

45
 "I'll warn Kitty the 
code's been stolen. You
make Miss Loring talk."

46
 "Miss Loring is ill - but
I think I can handle -
everything."

47
 "Miss Loring sick 
- Miss Little take her
place."

48
 "I was just passing -
and dropped in to say
I'm taking a scientific 
interest in Miss Loring's 
case."

49
 "Has the transport
order come through
yet?"

50
 "The code has been 
stolen. Guard your
letters - and work 
quickly."

51
 "Thank the Postmaster
and say these may now 
be delivered."

52
 "The Jap may have 
found your envelope 
on the street - but make
it your business to be 
very nice to him."

53
 "When does Northfield
expect the final orders
about the transports?"

54
 "You're a loyal little 
American - eh?"

55
 "Will you help me to 
protect the soldiers of
your country - and the 
honor of mine?"

56
 "I have reason to suspect 
Major Northfield."

57
 "If Major Northfield is
innocent, your reports
will clear him. Only the
guilty will suffer."

58
 "When does Northfield 
get the transports' sailing
date and route?"

59
 "If you can't remember I
fear I shall have to perform
a little operation - on your 
brain."

60
"The 30th or 31st."

61
 "The - er - communication
we expect should arrive 
on Thursday or Friday of
this week."

62
 "If you'd marry me, Kitty
- I think I could keep 
my mind on this transport 
business."

63
By the end of the month,
  Nara-Nara's interest
 in his new "assistant"
 has become personal.

64
 "When I left Japan
my father sent me forth
- like a Samurai of old
- sworn to the service 
of my Emperor."

65
 "And he bade me 
return, at the end of
my service, and lay
my sword - unstained
- at his feet."

66
 "The postmaster says 
to try that code on this."

67
 "You must get me 
the information I want.
Remember it's for 
your brother and our
country."

68
 "I'm going to do my 
duty - but I feel like a
cheat and a - traitor."

69
 "The transport order!
Bring it to me inside -
in five minutes."

70
 "I'll add my instructions
to this transport order -
and mail it to Captain
Frost."

71
 "Please mail this to 
Captain Frost - he'll 
get it in an hour. That'll
be all for today."

72
 "Deliver this to Captain 
Frost in person. The one 
I gave the girl is a -
trap."

73
 "The letter I hoped 
to find - evidently has
not been mailed."

74
Preparing for the
   "get-away".

75
 "I want the name and 
number of the last call 
to my office."

76
 "The call came from
Dr. Ebell Smith's!"

77
 "Order an expressman
- that you can trust."

78
 "How about - Miss 
Loring?"

79
 "You - traitor! Never
will your big round eye
break the heart of
another man."

80
 "You are too beautiful 
to die! I will take you 
to Japan with me."

81
 "He watches to avenge
his dead chief. He at
least is not a - traitor."

82
 "You need not fear 
Northfield."

83
 "I'll never tell him
you are a traitor if you
come with me."

84
 "If you won't come 
with me you'll never 
see Northfield again."

85
 "The man on the balcony
thinks the murderer is
searching the house. He'll
kill whoever returns to the
body."

86
 "Northfield will be 
that man!"

87
 "You are the traitor
- to yourself, your
Emperor and your
'Stainless' sword!"

88
 "This letter will be 
your punishment.
Mine must be greater.
I go to take the stain 
off my sword."

89
 "As a member of the 
Secret Service, it is my 
duty to return this to 
you - unopened."

90
 "Because of this
I'll at least die - an
American."

91
 "Miss Little was
helping to catch the 
spy. The 'letter' she
delivered was - - a 
blank."

92
 "Come. I have something 
to show you."

93
"The transports."

94
