a crime, and I recognize it, of course,
and your right to prosecute, if you are
o determined. Hut put yourself In

prodigal in his kindness. There are
more people in town to-day who bare
been buoyed up and brightened by
tim than by any other man, old or
youug. Maybe he did take your money
to help do it. But as much as be ever
expected to do anything he expected
to pay It all back. He stinted himself;
it was only with other be was gen

to make things easy for her If he
could. He was ashamed to admit that
he couldn't keep It up. Foolish? Of

had always been kept up, don't you?
You see w hat it has already cost him.
Don't make It cost him everything

a determined effort to find something

save Dau. liut alt my determination
and eagerness went for nothing. There
was absolutely nothing I could lay
hands upon. Ankony was Inexorable
and vindictive. And no help could
come outside of Ankony. There was
no further appeal to bo miidti to blm.
As I was leaving the office on a
further search, wblcb, 1 admitted even
as 1 undertook It, promised nothing. I

wu startling to see her so. Her face, j

could I do, with bound hands?

my (urther office. At the door, how

was astonished to e her pause before

I called to her. 1 would not have her

"Gladly, If you will give me a new
reason for it," I replied. "There are
so many well-known ones, but I have
heard of nothing new. What la it?"
"Flatterer! But, really, don't you
know? Haven't you heard? Am I
actually to be the news-bearer ?
"I know nothing, I assure you. I
never hear things, Mrs. Ankony, until
everyobdy elso has heard them. Do
take pity on me, won't you?"
"But I supposed you would hare

That Is. It's going to be to-night."

She made a funny little mouth. "If
you tease me, Mr. Twining, perhaps I
shan't tell you."
"Oh. but you will," I smiled; "noth

'Frankly. nothing could," she
"Then tell me. do," I begged.
She leaned down to me, composing
her face from merriment to tranquil
lity. "I'm the happiest woman in town

Don't you think I have a right to be?"
I bad lust strength to stoop and pat

"Are you surprised ?"
I continued to fondle the spaniel.

Mrs. Ankony nodded ready assent
So 1 should hare said. Mr. Twining,

I stood up wllu recovered equll
"What a pleasant exchange of com

'Do you know," she remarked
thoughtfully, "it seems rather a pity
we should iiiive known each other so

"The los 1 am sure is all initio, and

as we turned to look at them, she

"How she fits her name, doesn't

"The mount?" I Inquired.

I chased him over the grass and

"How quaint you are!" she laughed.
We turned with smiles and bow to

were Indeed Imposing. The Sistlne

down the avenue, not sure where I

steps. I was sot clearly conscious of
my reason for wanting to see Henri
etta Wlnstanley Just then except that
she always clarified things for m
and certainly they bad never needed
It worse than now.
To my great disappointment I found
that she had gone out of town to Join
an invalid friend, and that her return
and destination were not known at
borne, depending as they did cpon th
caprice of the friend. Her servant
thought it probable, however, that ah
would not bo back in town for several
weeks, perhaps a month.
I turned from her door in the deep
est regret but my tumbling thought
had already begun to steady them
selves Into something resembling
calm, and I saw things a little more
clearly: One thing I perceived with
startling clearness, and that was that
Barbara had given herself for Dana
liberty and good name.
What It meant to her drove away,
for the moment, all thought of what It
meant to me, but later my own rebel
lloa arose and rioted to no end. It
was indeed the hopelessness of at all
that smote me from the beginning. I
felt like a paralysed man in a fire.
But he listens for the sound of hi
rescuers, and for me there could be
no help. There had been but one way
to save Dan a way so hideous It had
not even suggested Itself to me, but
Barbara, loving blra as she did and
determined to save him, bad thought
of It at once and had not hesitated to
take It, monstrous as It was In Its
That Dan could accept so high a
price of her astonished me, but I
knew (hat she dominated him In the
affairs of their everyday life, and I
could understand that, sick as he was
with despair and remorse, he would
