"I'll do all you suggest," he said to
Laura, "and whether you wish it or
not I am very grateful."
She lowered her eyes under his look
of gratitude and then went below.
As soon as it grew dark Mark lis
tened for the signal. It came a few
minutes before nine o'clock. Mrs. Fain
had remained in the parlor up to that
moment, when she went up stairs to
get some article necessary to a piece
of work she was doing. Laura follow
ed her, turning out the lights by the
way and keeping on up to the attic.
/Within a few seconds after her
knock Mark was descending the stairs
and in a twinkling was in the parlor.
Not half a minute elapsed between the
signal and his arrival there.
It was not long before Mrs. Fain was
heard groping about up stairs in the
dark, wanting to know who had turned
out the lights and calling on a servant
to relight them. When she entered the
parlor she was surprised to see her
daughter in company with a stranger,
who was standing, hat in hand, as
though he had just come in from with

heart in her throat, but with the most
assured of innocent tones, "this Is a

You may not know It, but you are in
the center of a rich mineral region."
It is pleasant to hear that fortune
may come soon, and Mrs. Fain was
evidently much pleased at the informa
"Indeed!" she said calmly.
"Yes, madam, I have been looking
for ore. I presume I need not say

Mark bowed low, with his hand on
his heart, like a South Carolina gen

"Have you supped?" asked Mrs. Fain.
"Yes, madam; I succeeded in getting
a meal by the way. A poor one, indeed

Miranda was summoned and directed
to show the gentleman to the guest

front of the house.

converse with Laura.
"If I may beg you to excuse me,
ladies," he said, "I will go out for a
little fresh air."
He strolled out into the night and
walked back and forth on the veranda.
"Laura," said Mrs. Fain, "go out and
entertain Mr. Rhett. I'm afraid of the
