He did not wait for a reply; he
merely laughed and went out of the
There was an awkward silence.
The girl stood by the table, her
eyes downcast, the sunset flow
from the wide-open window all
about her, her fingers nervously
twisting the loose sash at her waist.
The Fortune Hunter looked at her
helplessly; he had never felt at such
a loss in his life. Twice he cleared
his throat before, with a desperate
effort, he said rather hoarsely:
"We shall have a great deal to
say to one another?you and I."
"Yea" She looked up swiftly, her
eyes radiant through the tears that
misted them. Then suddenly she j

her pretty face strained in sudden.
"Oh, are you really?really glad
to be here v'ith me?"* /
The Fortune Hunter looked pastj
her. and swiftly round the room?
glad to be in such comfort and luxury,
even if only for a short while,
after the months of discomfort and
His eyes wandered to the open j
window; to the sloping garden beyond
and the silvery river, and he ;
drew a deep breath.
"Glad! That's a poor word," he
He looked down at her flushing|
face, read the thought in her eyes,!
and for a moment he hesitated. ;
Then with a little half-shamed:
laugh, he bent and kissed her lips.
She returned the kiss with soft'
eagerness, whispering brokenly as
they drew apart again: "And no j
man has ever kissed me since you ,
The Fortune Hunter flushed scar- ,
let; an intolerable sense of shame j
seemed to choke him. He walked j
away from her and stood looking i
out over the river with hot eyes.
Ho had done many questionable j
thincrs in his life, and felt little j
compunction. Many times in his'
w^derings he had walked boldly!
into a restaurant, eaten a hearty;
meal, and got out of the place with- j
out paying a cent for it. More than ;
once he had thrown the bag con-1
tajning all his worldly belongTngs j
out of his lodging window, and followed
it down a water-pipe into the j
street in order to avoid the impossi- j
bility of meeting his bill, and it had '
all seemed more or less sport.
Put this?somehow this thing,
which gave promise to be the great-;
est adventure of all, went sorely j
against the grain.
VTt will have to end." he told him- j
self grimly, as he stood and stared
at the river.
He had taken many a kiss in his
life, and thought nothing of it, but
this girl was different. She loved
him; or at least she loved the man
whom she believed him to be.
And a little breath of coolness
swept through the heart of fhe
Fortune Hunter as he thought of
the man lying dead in the woods j
with the bracken bending above
The whole thing was madness, j
Discovery was bound to come.
For an hour or two perhaps he;
might carry the situation with a
hf?h hand?long enough to get a
' good mean and fresh courage with
which to face his wanderings?but
there it would have to end.
He had meant no harm; he had

ought to have had more sense:
women were so sentimental?
Even supposing there was a faint
resemblance between himself and.
file dead man! After all, theirs was
an ordinary type. But he was conscious
of keen curiosity to know
what story lay behind it all, and
from what ten years of exile the
dead man had been on his way
The gfrl touched his arm gently.
"John, is it?all this?anything like
