all at once the Fortune Hunter
seemed to realise that the matter
was serious and that the boy was
in danger of drowning.

his jacket aside and plufiged Into

clambered out with the weed In his
lair and water dripping from him.
The girl had regained her selfrontrol
and brought the punt to the
tank, but she was very pale and
her voice shook as she knelt down
beside the exhausted boy.
"Oh. Tommy! Oh, are you all !

the boy's drenched figure but he repelled
her almost rough.

The Fortune Hunter laughed.
"I don't take cold easily?" his
careless gaze wandered over the
girl's concerned face, and, realizing
Its attraction, he added more gracioualy:
"You're very kind~-at any

"Tea. I am sure we can never

Oh. Tommy, what should we have
done if nobody had come along?"
The boy laughed harshly.
"I should have drowned, that's
all." He began to hoiat himself up
from the grass with difficulty, and

arm around him and lifted him to
"Lean on me." he said. "I can
twry you If you like, but . . ."
"Thank you. I can walk." was the
vngracious response. But he was
glad of a helping hand before they
had gone very far, and presently,
without a word, the Fortune Hunter
picked him up bodily and carried
him the remainder of the way, the
water running from both of them
In uncomfortable little rivulets,
leaving a trail along the dusty
The girl followed silently. From
time to time she kept looking at
the Fortune Hunter with queer,
half-scared glances, and when they
reached the house she ran ahead
and opened the gate, standing aside
to let him pass. It was an old-fashioned
house, with ivy-covered walls
and * garden sloping down to the
river. Tufcs filled with Ivy geraniums
bordered the terrace, and
striped sun blinds were drawn over
the windows of the house.
The Fortune Hunter cast a swift
glance- around him and wondered if
this was the turn in his luck for
which he had been waiting.
He followed the girl Into the
hall. It was cool and dark and
rose scented, and he put his burden
"You'd better have a hot bath at
'Ice.'" he said casually. "A duckin

The boy limped away toward the
stairs without answering; he was
an ungracious sort of youth, and
his thin, delicate face was fretful
and ill tempered.
The girl looked up at the Fortune
Hunter as he moved to the door.
"I cannot let you go like this,"
she said decidedly. "You must
change, too. and my uncle will like
to see you and thank you.
"Tommy?my brother?is very
delicate, you know"?she paused?"but.
of course, you don't know,"
sb* added slowly.
The Fortune Hunter did not answer.
He was a little puzzled by
the girl's manner; and when presently
he was shown Into a bathroom
and given a suit of dry clothes

on the small side, were a welcome
