She laughed happily, and ran

The Fortune Hunter watched till
he saw her disappear into his house,
then he left the garden and walked j
out along the road.
Hia face was hot. and the memory i
?f her kisses burnt his lips. He f^lt!
as ff a lifetime had passed since,
ihe moment when he sat on the side j
?f his bed and made up his mind '
to escape from the house.
He no longer wanted to go: he
wanted to stay more fiercely than he

any material gain to himself, but
because of a girl whose arms had

The darkness seemed to have
deepened very rapidly, the Fortune

along up the road towards a mass
of twiiucling lights which indicated

had gone in. and the Fortune;

he turned his steps towards a lightf

blind of the village.

enteced. called for a glass of beer. '
and found a seat on a long bench j
in an unobserved corner.
It was only when he had picked
up an evening paper lying at his
elbow and was beginning to feel i
quite comfortable that he realized
the mistake he had made in entering

and their interests were well known
to the landlord here and the few
lonngers who talked together at a
enter table. The Fortune Hunter1
trjanced apprehensively round him.
but everyone seemed-bent on their!
own concerns, and not a glance was
turned his way.
He finished his drink hurriedly. 1
and had risen to leave the placeJ
when his attention was caught by j
the mention of a name that had in
the past few hours grown to mean
a great deal in his life.
"So Miss Anne's got her young,
rnan back, after all?"
The Fortune Hunter looked up
sharply, his face flushing; but he
sat down quietly near to the
speaker, and, taking up a paper.
held it so as to screen him while
he listened further.
It was quite possible that he '
might pick up some useful information
here, he thought, even while
lie was half ashamed of the hope.
The landlord, who leaned over the
bar, was the man who had made
the remark, and it seemed to be !
addressed to the company in general.
