Flo was indeed faint. The excite
ment over, her strength began again to
fail, and gladly she sank down at the
foot of the tree to which be had led her.
1 hiring bis brief absence she began to
retleet upon her portion with renewed
anxiety. She was alone in the bush
with one whose love bad once been so
passionate as to create fear in her. and
bhe grew yet more wishful to return.
When Herbert Archer returned, with
a broad leaf, held as a cim, full ot
water, she earnestly urged her desire
"Yes, after you have rested," was hi
"Indeed I have rested sufficiently,"
she finally remarked, "and can bettei
bear the' fatigue than this anxiety,
l'ray, Mr. Archer, let us go."
Slie half rose; but, his hand quickly
on her arm. he restrained her.
"Miss (irainger Florence,'' he said
in a low tone, "there are worse things
to hear than either fatigue or anxiety."
Looking up she met the passionate
expression of his dark eyes. They
thrilled her with a new fear. She
shrunk timidly back, while she mur

"Mean? Surely yoi know? To low

"Mr Archer, vou promised
"l'lomiseii: )id I not recall that
promise at his death? Am I a madman
to give place to a dead rival? A mad
man, perhaps, to love one so hard, so
pitiless. That I cannot help. I do love
you I must!"
The girl was trembling in every limb.
Nevertheless she managed to reply in
steady, indignant tones:
"This is cowardly, unmanly to ad
dress me thus. Mr. Arelier. I woutd
not I will not believe you guiltv of
such baseness, to insult ine when t am
in vour power."
ltYcs. you are in my power; Fate lias
so chanced. We are in the heart of the
bush, safe from all intrusion." he re
joined. "Hut, Florence. I do not insult
vou. I hut sn' I love, and ask return.

gratitude; there is but one way I can
be paid- I will he paid-yoiir love!"
lie threw himself on the grass in
front of her. imprisoning her hands,
bis eager eyes fixed on her countenance.
She was overwhelmed with terror.
"Rise, 1 entreat you," she pleaded.
'Tf you love nie, think how you are
making me sillier."
"Where is the difference? You do
not lme nie. and you cause nie agony."
lie rejoined. "The s:ght of you of

"Forget 1'hiiip!" ejaculated Flo, al

"Then?" she repeated, anxiously re
garding him as he arose and looked
down upon her.
"We do not return. We shall remain
lieie-alone. toyeVher ill the bush."
"licniain li' ii !" she gapped in horror.
"Yes. remain here until you promise

"(Jh.'lli a n!" she cried, "Jieln UiB

"It will not bear. Florence, or why
mav its pity not be for me?"
"This is" shameful cowardly," she
exclaimed, indignantly. "Is this a way

die than wed yon!"
lie laughed", and in despair she bowed
her face on her hands and burst into
tears. For a space he watched her,
then once again was at her feet.
"Florence, whv are you ho deter
mined?" he ejaculated. '"Why will vou
reject an affection such as mine'? I
worship you. See. at your feet I pray
I tut real you to hear me."
More passionate words yet fell from
bislips.as. prone before' her, he held
her feet and pressed his lips on them,
terrifying the unhappy girl into silence,,
"Florence, do not think to move me.

not do that. Spurn me. dash this foot

that is the cause. Jlellect what such a
love must be. No man's has ever hui

slave. If you refuse to speak it you
must obey me,"
"Am I your prisoner then?"
"If yon so term it, yes. Your love
"My love!" f,he cried. "I hate you!"
The words hurst forth involuntarily,
yet with hitter intensity. Fain would
she have recalled them, but too late.
Ho had sprung to bis feet as if shot.
His passion outwardly had disappeared.
His countenance was dark and lower
ing. "So be it," be remarked; "I must
wait then for time. What will the world
say, when," laughing, "a weclr hence,
perhaps, you, Florence, and I return
from our sojourn in the bush?"
"Let them say what they will, the
sinful alone sutler."
1 What a fallacy. That is to say, tho
hardened criminal is the most sensi
tive. Tut! before the week is over,
Florence, you w ill have consented to be
"Never," she rejoined firmly.
""We shall see' lie smiled as he
walked nwav, and flung himself down a
few paces off.
I low near death he w as at that mo
ment lie never knew.
To attempt to describe Florence
Grainger's feelings would be impossi
ble. The wildest ideas thronged her
brain. Why had she been abducted?
By whom? How had Herbert Archer
rescued her? Then suddenly came the
thought that the whole bad been apian
of her captor's.
Could she ever love nay, wed such a
man? i et what was she to do.-'
At moments she succumbed to
changeful 1'its of indignation and de
spair. At others a dull, helpless leth
argy stole over her.
As the dav advanced. Herbert Archer
had brought and placed refreshments
before her. F'lo said nothing. She
turned from him. but it confirmed her
belief that she bad been the victim of a
cruel plot, else bow was this man pro
vided with refreshment. As the night
drew on he kindled a tire.
"The nights are chill in the bush,"
he remarked. "We must camp out now
of necessity. I must wait your reply
until the morning."
Florence did not answer, and he with
drew to his former place.
The morning, what would it bring
her? Slunild she start away in the
night? It would be useless; she would
lie onlv ignominioiisly overtaken.
Herbert Archer again approached,
bringing her a riding cloak that had
been strapped at his saddle. After that
neither moved, and the long, long hours
of the night stole on. and over ami over
again the unhappy gb'l asked herself
what the morning was to bring.
A iocm.js sfitriiisK,
It required but an hour, if that, of
dawu. when Flo, w ho from utter weari
ness and anxiety, was partly dozing,
had a vague presentiment, as if it were
in a dream, that somebody was breath
ing among the bushes behind her.
It was too low to startle her; sho
rather seemed to awaken to it. The
lire had burned dow n to a dull w hite
glow; the darkest hour indeed was that
before dawn; aniongthe treestbe black

the breathing yet continued.
Waking more fully she felt sure that
the breathing was that of a human be
ing. She was in the very act of turn
incr her head, when a familiar voice
whispered so low that she could scarce
ly catch the words:
"Do not speak your shafety depends
on caution. 1 vill resebue you."
She could not help a slight start; her
heart beat fast with joyous hope. The
accents were those of the Jew. A friend
a true friend was near.
"You heir. Mish (irainger?''
She simply shook her head affirma
tively. "Doesh be sbleep. You don't know.'
She shook her head.
"I'an you try? You musbt yesh,

self behind the tree trunk, leaving the
cloak where she had been reclining
Now and then she paused to observe
Archer. He made no move.
What anxious moments they were.
How long they seemed.
At last she was shrouded in the dark
ness, but the touch of the Jew's band
showed her his presence.
"Can you kneel and follow me," he
"Yes. go on." And she followed,
trembling at the rustle of every leaf.
In a few minutes they reached a clear
Rpace, and Flo saw dawn was breaking,
and also that a horse stood ready near

carefully'began to move away from the

Her llight was discovered. The cry
and the shout were Herbert Archer's.
"Caution ish no longer poshible,"
whispered Isaac. "Our horshesh musht
prove who hash the besht heelsh," and
shaking the reins he dashed on.
Behind, Flo heard Herbert Archer's
voice shouting, then others. Then
came the sharp tramp of horses crash
ing through the underwood.
"I was right," she ejaculated almost
unconsciously; "there are more than
he. It was a" plot."
"More, yesh; there are three. Mish

With voice and heel lie urged on the

too soon found to come after them.
The Jew listened; yes, there were
three regular beats-there were three
riders. He guessed who they were.
The two abductors of the girl, and
Herbert Archer, lie had laid this plot

Those shots bad been very harmlessly
exchanged. There were, then, three to

done little good.

changing to golden, began to shine
through the trees. As it brightened yet
more, the Jew grew aware that lie had

Flo clung to him, silent, 'trembling,

gaze was bent in advance.
Nearly two hours' ride.
The Jew's horse beginning to show
unmistakable signs of exhaustion,
needed more urging, while the purnui.rs
were gaining everv stride.
"They are closer," fjacululed Flo,
alarmed. "They will overtake us."
The Jew made no reply.

As Flo's eves rested on one of tho

The colonel had now joined them,
and the search party, composed of this
fehady Creek men. aiid several strangely
who had joined them on their way, had
come round, curious to bear.
On the outskirts of the group stood a
short, thickset man, with a red hand

In these times of ouack medicine adver

to find one remedy that is worthy of praise
and which really docs as recninrucuded.
Electric Hitters we can vouch for as being
a true and reliable remedy, and one that
will do as recommended. They invariably
cure Stomach and Liver Complaints, Dis
eaiesof ths Kidneys and Urinary diffi
culties. We know whereof we spealc, and
enn readily say, give them a trial. Hold at
fifty cents a bottle bv Barclay Bros, pi

J'eecher's Had Head.
For two months in the year Henry Ward
Heedier can't preach. In August and Sep
tember hu takes his vacation and endures
Ihu onset of tho buy fever. And it is, so tio
says, something terrible and trememdous.
A man with hay fever Isn't accountable lor
huuetions. He is merely a wild Deasi
frantic with HinnTing, sneezing and head
ache.. Hie eyes are red and so is hia none.
Kvery nerve in his head js a lountain of
tuaiH. He lives only to fly from seaside, to
mountain-top in search of relief.
And yet, whether wo call this form of
Catarrh hay fever, rose-fever, hay-cold or
tose-cold, Ely's Cieani Halm will euro it.
This remedy is simple, pleusant and easy of
application. Placed in tho nostrils it pene
trates and soothes tho affected Prts at
once, restores the impaired senses and cro
ati a healthy secretions in cases of tho long
est Bt.indii'g. You cannot run away from
hay fever, but you can drivo it from you by
using Fly's Cream Bulm.
Wohk Given Out. On receipt of vour
address wo will tnako an oiler by which
you can earn P to 7 evenings, at your
home. Men, Women, Boys or Girls can do
it. II, C. Wilkinson & Co., 105 Mid 197
