Crlchton tried to force a few drops
of it between the girl's clinched teeth.
After a few minutes, however, he had
to abandon the attempt.
The situation was desperate.
The Inspector stepped forward.
Don't you think, sir. you ought to

administer various remedies which he
'took out of a bag.

"What shall I do?"
"We will take her home, and in tho

"Well. Dr. Stuart Smith has qne not

"Certainly. All right; Uke" her there."
"I had better telephone and prepare

The Inspector's eyes were upon him;
Peter was at his elbow. There was no
help for It.
"Mrs. Cyril Crlchton." he said.
Tho doctor returned In a few minutes.
"It Is all right. They have got a
room, and Dr. Smith will bo there al
most as soon n we are."
Having lifted her Into the ambulance,
the doctor turned to Cyril and said:
"I suppose ou prefer to accompany
Mrs. Crlchton. Vou may get In, In
Crlchton meekly obeyed.

wait for me there, and, by the way, bo

They had apparently got rid of the
police that was something, at all
f-vents. His own position, however,
riiuapd htm the gravest concern. It was
not only compromising, but supremely
ridiculous. He must extricate himself
from It at once.
tils only chance, he decided, lay In
confiding the truth to Dr. Smith. Great
physicians liavo necessarllv nn enor
mous knowledge of life, and, therefore,
he would be better able than any other
man to understand the situation and
ndvlse him as to what should lw done.
At all events, the etiquette of his call
ing would pi event a doctor from dlvulir

Crlchton heaved a sigh of satisfaction.
Hli troubles would soon be over.
The ambulanco stopped. The girl was
carried Into the house and taken 'pos
session of by an eftlclent-looklng nurse.
Cyril requested to wait In the reception
Toom while she was being nut to bed.
He was told Dr. Smith would communi
cate with him as soon as ho had ex
amined the patient.
Crlchton paced the loom In feverish
impatience. His doubts revived. What
if tho doctor should tefuso to keep hor?
Again and again he rehearsed what ho
intended to say to him, butthe oftcner

If the doctor should consider It his duty
. to Inform the police of her wheteabouts?
At laBt the door opened. Dr. Smith
proved to be a short, gray-haired man,
with piercing black ocs under lieMHng,
black brows, large nose and a long up
. Cyril's heart sank. The doctor did not
look as If he would be likely to sympa.
hlz with his adventure.
"Mr. Crlchton, I believe." The llttlo
man spoko oulto fiercely, ami regarded
our friend with evident dlsfuvor.
Crlchton was for a nionvnt nonplused.
What had ho done to be addressed In
such a fashion?
"I hope you can give me good news
of the patient?" he said, disregarding
the other's manner.
"No," snapped out the doctor. "Mrs.
Cilchton Is er seriously, not to say
wiuit un extraordinary way or an

husband! Wns everyone mad today?
"I uni awfully sorry" began Crlch
ton. "Oh! you are, are you?" Interrupted
the doctor, and this time there could

be no doubt that he waa Intentionally
Insulting. "Will you, then, be kind
enough to explain how your wife hap
pens to bo In the condition she Is?"
"What condition?" faltered Cyril.
"Tut, man; don't pretend to be Ig
norant. Hemcmber, I am a doctor and
can testify to facta; yes, facta,-" , he
I'oor Crlchton eat down abruptly. He
really felt ho could bear no more.
"For heaven's aake, doctor, tell me
what Is the matter with her, I awear
I haven't the falnteat Idea."
His distress was so evidently genu
ine that the doctor relaxed a little and
looked at him searchlngly for a mo
ment. "Your wife has been recently flogged.
"Flogged? How awful I But I can't
"Certainly not. You must be mis
taken. Tho bruises may bo tho result
of a fall." r
"They aro not," snapped the doctor.
"Flogged! Here In England In the
twentieth century! But who could havo
dona such a thing?"
"That la for you to explain, and I
muat warn you that unless your ex-
Flanatlon la unexpectedly aatlsfactory,
shall at once notify the police."
Police I Crlchton wiped beads of per
spiration from Ills' forehead.
"But, doctor, I know no more about
it than you do."
"So you think that It will be sufficient
for you to deny all knowledge aa to
how, where, and by whom a woman
who la your wife yea, air, your wife
haa been maltreated? Man, do you take
me for a fool?" ,
What should he 'do? Was this the mo
ment to tell him the truth? No, It would
be useless. The doctor, believing him to
be a brute, was not In a frame pi mind
to attach credence to hla atory. Tho
truth waa too Improbable: a convincing
He could alone aave the situation.
"My wife and I have not been living
together lately." he stammered. J
"Indeedl" The piercing eyea aeemed
to grow more piercing, the long upper
lip to become longer.
"Yes." Crlchton hesitated. It is dif
ficult to Invent a plausible story on the
spur ot the moment.
"In fact, I met her quite unexpectedly
In Newhavcn this morning," he said.
"Yes. I have Just arrived from
France," continued Crlchton, more flu
ently. An Idea waa ahaplng Itself In his
mind, "I was most aatonlshed to meet
my wife In England, aa I had been look
ing for her In Parts for the last week."
"I don't understand."
"My wife Is unfortunately mentally
unbalanced. For the last few months
she has been confined In an asylum."
Crlchton spoko with Increasing assur
ance. "Where was this asylum?"
"Yes, but where? France la a big
"It Is called Charlerol, and Is about
thirty miles from Paris, In the direction
"Who la the director ot thla Institu
tion?" "Dr. Leon Monet."
"And you auggest that It waa there
that she was Ill-treated. Let me tell
Cyill Interrupted him.
I suggest no such thing. My wlfo
escaped from Charlerol over a week
ago. We know she went to Paris, but
there we lost all trace of her. Imagine
my astonishment at finding her on the
train this morning. How she got there
I can't think. She seemed very much
agitated, but I attributed that to my
presence. I have lately had a most
unfortunate effect upon her. I did ask
her how she got the bruise on Kcr
cheek, but she wouldn't tell me. I
had no Idea she was suffering. If I
had been guilty of the condition she Is
In Is It likely that I should have
brought her to a man of your reputa
tion and character? I think that alone
proves my Innocence."
The doctor stated ot him fixedly for
a few moments as If weighing the
credibility of his explanation.
"You say that the phslclon, under
whose care your wlfo has been Is call
"Yes- Leon Monet."
The doctor left the loom abruptly.
When he returned his bearing had com
"I have Just erlfled your statement
In a French medical directory, and I
must apologize to you for having Jump
ed ot conclusions In the way I did. Pray
Crlchton bowed rather distantly. He
didn't feel overklndly to a man who
had forced him Into such a quagmire
"Now, as to" Cyril hesitated a
moment; ho detested calling the girl
by his name. "Now s to to the
patient. Havo you any Idea when she
Is likely to recover consciousness?"
"Not tho faintest. Of course, what
vou tell me of her mental condition In
ereases the seriousness of the rase.
With historical cases anything and ev
erything Is possible."
"But you do not fear tho worst?"
"Certainly not; she Is young; sh will
lecelve the best of care. I tee no rea
son why she should not recover. Now,
If you would like to remnln near her"
There seemed a conspiracy to keep
him forever at the girl's side! But this
time he meant to break away even If
he had to fight for It.
"I shall of course remain near her1,
