Suddenly hN ninnuer changed, nud ho
Hpoko mi roughly Hint hIio looked nt

"How ilo you know? How do ou

"He told me so."
Ktnrlc snarled. "Ho lied!"
"1 can hIiow yon her wedding ring.
I'vonlwnys worn It." She fumbled for
the chain nlioiit In r mvk, hut It eluded
her trembling lingers. "It has her

Stark's hand darted forwiinl mid lore

Then Willi one swift, downward clutch

throat, n cry half of amazement, hnlf
"Ix-t ino gol Let me gol" She strug
gled to free herself, hut lie held her In
a viselike grip, while he peered closely
nt a blemish well down upon her Imck.
Then he let her slip from his crimp,
and, seized with terror, she staggered
nwny from him. He wus leaning heav
ily with hoth hands upon the tnhle, his
thin lips grinning, his whole inniincr
so terrifying that she shrank hack.
Shu turned and made for the door,
whereupon ho straightened up mid said
In a queer, commanding tolce:
"Walt. Don't go. I-l-you"- Ho
licked his lips as If they wero dust
dry, passed mi uncertain hnuil ncross
his headed hrow and, raising tho wa
ter pnl hesldc the door to his mouth,
drank heavily In great, noisy gulps.

"Don't ho scared," ho snld, more
quietly now. "You must excuse me.
You you save me un nwful fright.
Yes, Hint wns It. Don't worry. I
didn't menu any harm."
"You hurt my shoulder," she said,
almost rendy to cry. "And you tore

"You see. It's llko this Hint name of

thought It don't mutter what I
lliought, hut I'm sorry. I'll npologlze, '
Hid I'll get you n whole lot of dresses !
If you like." I
Ills llrst Impulse had been to tell hep
everything, but his amazement had
tendered him spccchlciis. and now he
was thankful for It. Cure must be ex

for If shu hiispeeted the truth she

Tlrst, nud itliovu ull, ho must get tho
girl awiiy from Flambeau.
These last few moments had driven
Ncclj's own worries from her mind,
but ho was bent on recalling them and
so continued cautiously:
"You wero suylug that you thought
you'd go uwuy. I think that's u good
plau, nml you'd be wise to do It for
more reasons thnn one. It will glvo
you lime to think It all over nud know

I'm going to help you-hecnusu l'u got

Again ho betrayed that strange, mirth
"Thero Is no place for mo to go," said
Nocln blankly, "except the mission,
nml I have no way of getting there."
"Dou't you worry. I'll furnish tho
menus, nud you'd better go tonight"
sho flinched "yes, tonight. Thcro's no
use prolonging your ugony. I'll get n
boat ready and send u trusty man with

Tho light of sacrifice was In Necln's

"I'll ho hero In an hour," sho said
Ho let her out, closed tho door nfter
her and locked It; then, drawing n deep

The shells did not suit him, so he filled
the gun with now ones, loosenid the

then, facing the direction uf (Sale's
