Wli. ro did I K!.tp, tlivn? Well, I had
found a cozy resting plnco behind soma
boards propped against tho wall of a ha
kor's oTt'ii A- a street near Mnorjratc The
wall wait Knmi and smelt of now lircful,
and another b-siiin inysHf had discovered
its arlvantnaes. This was the watchman,
who had slumbered away most of his vigil
cheek by jowl with me; hut, morning np-proni-klnr;,
had roused liiinsclf, and before
ho was well out of hia bed, certainly be
fore he had li ft his hrdrmuu, hud befrun,
tho ungrateful wretch, to prove bis watch
fulness by disturbing every uno tl.ee.
I sat up ami rubbed my eyes, grinding
my shoulders well against tho wall for
warmth. I had no nted to turn out yet,
but I began to think, and tho more I
thought thn harder I stared nt tho planks
six inches Ix foro my nose. My thought.
turned upon a vrny knotty point, one that
I had never st rluuhly cunsiuVnxl before:
What was 1 Roiup; to do neztf How was
I going to live or to rear tho now house of
which I have made mention' Hitherto I
had aimed simply at reaching London.
London had iaraded 1 Wolf before my mind,
though my mind should have known bet
ter, not as a town of cold streets and
dreary alleys and shops open fr-iiit 7 to 4,
with perhaps here und there a vacant
pluuo fur an apprentice, but as a gildi'd city
of adventure and romr.nco la which a
young man of enterprise, whether ho
wanted to go ulmard or to rlso at home,
miuht be sure f finding his Bword weigh
ed, priced and bought up on the Instant
and himself valued at his own standard.
Hut London reached, tho hoarding in
Moorgata reached, and 5 o'clock In the
morning reached, somehow these visions
faded rapidly. In the cold reality left to
lue I felt myself astray. If I would stay
at home, who was going to employ mo?
To whom should I apply? What patron
had If Or if I would go abroud, how was
I to set about It? How find a vessel, see
ing that I might expect to lie arrested the
moment I showed my face in daylight?
Here ell my experience failed me. I did
not know what to do, though tho time
had come for action, and I must do or
starve It had !ecn all very well when I
was at Colon to propose that I would go
up to London and get across the water
such bad been my dim notion to the
CourtMiay and Killigrcws, who, with
other Refugees, Protestants for the root!
part, wore lying on tho French coast wait
ing for better times. Hut now that I was
In London, and as good as an outlaw my
self, I saw no means of going to them. I
scorned farther from my goal than 1 had
been In Warwickshire.
Thinking very blankly over all thla, I
begun to munch the piece of bread which
I owed to tho old dame at Tottenham and
hml solemnly got through half it when
the sound i( rapid footsteps tho footsteps
of women, I judged, from the lightness of
the tread caused me to hold my hand
and listen. Whoever they were and I
wondered, for it was still early, and I had
heard no ono pass since tho watchman bad
left me they camo to stand in front of
my shelter, und one of them spoko. Her
words madu me start. Unmistakably tho
voice was a gentlewoman's, such as I had
not heard for almost a week. And at this
place and hour, on tho raw borderland of
day and night, a gentlewoman was the
last person 1 expected to light upon. Vet
If tho sH-aker were not some ono of sta

Tho words wero uttered in a low voice,
but tho planks in front of mo wero thin.
and the speaker was actually leaning
against them. I caught every accent of
what seemed to lie the answer to a ques
tion. "Yes; yes. It is all right," she
said, a covert ring of impatience in her
voice. "Take breath a moment. I do not
ace hint now.
"Thank heaven!" muttered another
voice. As I hnd fancied, there were two
persons. The latter speaker's tone smack
t d equally of breeding with the former's,
but wns rounder and fuller and more mas
terful, and site appeared to be out of
breath. "Then perhaps wo htvo throv.n
Mm off the trail," she continued after a
short pause, in which file seeimd to have
somewhat recovered herself. "I distrusted

They moved briskly as she spoke, and
her words werq already growing indistinct
front distano while I remained still, idly
seeking the cU-w to their talk and matter
ing over and over ngrdn tho name Oar
enne, which seemed familiar to me, when
a cry of alarm, in which I recognized one
of their voices, cut short my reverie. I
crawled with all speed from my shelter
and stood up, being; still in a lino with
the Ixiards and not easily distinguishable.
As Ebo bad said, it was a dark morning,
but the roofs of the bouses now high,
now low could I jo plainly discerned
against a gray, drifting sky wherein tho
first signs of dawn were visible, and tho
blank outlines of tho streets, which met
at this point, could be snrn. Fix or seven
yards front mn, in tho middle of tho road
way, stood three dusky figures, c.f whom
I judged tlte n.arcr, from tiiUr attitudes,

they wero talking to him quietly enough
as far as I could hctir. And in a luinuto
or so I saw the taller woman give him

and he stood tiock, si ill uncovered. And
hey, pros to! the women tripped swiftly
Dy this time my curiosity was Intensely
cxciti.il, but for a moment I thought it
was doomed to disappointment. I thought
that it wa3 all over. It was not by any
means. The man stood looking after thorn
until they reached tho corner, and the mo
ment they had passed it lis followed. His
stealthy manner of going and his fashion
of peering after them was enough for me,
guessed at onco that ho was dogging
them, following them unknown to them
and against their will, and with consider
able elation I started after him, using the
same precautions. What was sauce for
tho geese was sauco for tho ganderl So
we went two, one, one slipping after
one another through half a dozen dark
streets, tending generally southward.
following him in this way I seldom
caught a glimpse of the women. Tho man
kept at a considerable distance behind
them, and I had my attention fixed on
him. I'.ut once or twice when, turning a
corner, I all but trod on his heels, I saw
them, and presently an odd point aliout
them struck mo. TUe.ro was a white ker
chief or something attached apparently to
tho bock of tho one's cloak, which consid
erable assisted my stealthy friend to keep
them it view. It puzzled mo. Was it a
signal to him? Was ho really all the time
acting in concert with them, and was I
throwing away my pains? Or was the
white object which so betrayed them
merely the rteult of carelessness and tho
lack of foresight of women grappling with
a condition uf things to which they were
unaccustomed? Of course I could not de
cide this, the more as, at that distance, I
failed to distinguish what tho white some
thing was or even which of the two wore it.
Presently I got a clew to our position,
for wo crossed Cheapsido close to Paul's
cross, which my childish memories of the
town cnnbld me to recognizn, even by
that light. Hero my friend looked up and
down and bung a minute on bis heel be
foro ho followed tho women, as if expect
ing or looking for some ono. It might be
that ho was tryiag to mako certain that
tho watch were nut in sight. They were
not, at any rate. Irobably they bad gone
borne to bed, for tho morning was grow
ing. And after a momentary hesitation
he rlunged Into the narrow street down
which the women bad flitted.
He hnd only gone a few yards when I
heard him cry out. The next instant, al
most running uganst hint myself, I saw
what bad happened. Too women had
craftily lain in wait for blin in the little
court into which the street ran and had
caught him as noatly as could be. When
I cainn upon them, the taller woman was
standing at bay, with a passion that was
almost fury in her poso and gesture. Her
face, from which the hood of a coarse
cloak bad fallen back, was palo with an
ger. Her gray eyes flashed. Her teeth
glimmered. Seeing her thus, and seeing
the burden sho carried under ber clonk.
which lustinct told mo was ber child, I
thought of a tigress brought to bay.
ion lying knave! she hissed. "You
Tho man recoiled a couplo of paces and
in recoiling nearly touched me.
"What would you?" she continued.
"What do you want? What would you
do? You have been paid to go. Go, and
"Idarenot." hemnttercd, keeping away
from her as if ho dreaded a blow. She
looked a woman who con Id deal a blow, a
woman who could both lovo and hate
fiercely and openly as proud and frank
and haughty a lady as I had ever seen in
my life. "I daro not, " bo muttered sul
ienly. I have my orders."
"UhV she (ried with scorn. '"You have

But from whom, sirrah? Whose orders

Harry were alive, and I would have you
whipped to Tyburn. Speak, rogue. Who
bade you follow mu?"
He shook his head.
She locked about her wildly, passion
ately, and I saw that she was at her wits'
ead what to do or how to escape him. Hut
sho was a woman. When she next spoke
there was a marvelous change in ber. Her
face bad grown soft, ber voice low.
"Philip." she said gently, "tho purse was
light. I will give you more. 1 will give
you treble the amount within a few weeks.
and I will thank you on my knees, and
my husband shall be such a friend to yon
as you have never dreamed of if you will
only go home and be silent. Only that
or better still walk the streets an hour
and then report that you lost sight of us.
Think man; think!" she cried, with ener
gy. "The times may change. A little

ne shook his head sullenly. "I dare not
do it," he said. And somehow I got the
idea that be was telling the truth and that
It was not the tunn's stublmru nature enly
that withstood the bribe and the plea. He
spoke as if he were repeating a lesson and
Uio master were present.
When she saw that she could not movo
him, the anger which I'think came more
naturally to ber broke out afresh. "You
will not, you bound!" sho cried. "Will
neither threats nor promisoa move you?"
"Neither," he answered doggedly. "I
have my orders. " . ...
Fo far I hart rcmninrd a quiet listener
standing in tho mouth of the lane which
opened upon the court where thc7 were.
The women had taken co notice of me,
either because tliey did not see mo or be
cause, seeing mn, they thought that I wns
a hanqcr on of the man hoftrr- them. And
he, having Ids back to me ami his eyes on
them, could not see me. It was a surprise
to hi in a vary fcreat surprise, I think
when I took three steps forward and grip
ped him by tho scruff of his neck.
"You havo your orders, bavo your I
muttered in his ear as I shook hint to and
fro, while the taller woman started back
and the younger uttered a cry of alarm at
my sudden appearance. ' Well, you will
not obey them. Do you bear? Your em
ployer may gn hang! You will do just
what these ladies please ta ask of you."
He struggled an instant, but ho was an
undersized man. and ho could not loosen
the hold which I had secured at my leisure.
Thoa I noticed his hand goinf to bis gir
dle in a suspicious way. ".Slop that," I
said, flashing before his eyes a short, broad
blade which had cut many a fleer's throat
in old Anlen forst. "You had lietter keep
quiet, or it will bo tho worse fir you.
Now, mistress," I continued, "you can
dispiiso of this littlo man ns you please. "
"Who are you?" sho said ufter a pause,
during which she had stared nt ntu in open
astonishment. No doubt I Was a wild
"A friend," I replied, "or ono who
would bo such. I saw this fellow follow
you, and I followed him. For the last fivo
minutes I have been listening ta your
talk. lie was not ntnonablc to ruason then,
but I think he will Lo uow. What shall
I do with him?"
Hto smiled faintly, Imt did not answer
at once, the coolness and resolution with
which sho had faced him befjro failing
her now, possibly in sheer astonishment
or because my appearance, at her side, by
removing the strain, sapped tho strength.
"I do not know," she said at length in a
vapne, puzzled tone,
"Well," I answered, "you are going to
the Lion wharf, and"
"Oh, you fool!" she 6c reamed out loud.
"Oh, you fool!" she repeated bitterly.
"Now you havo told him all."
I stood confounded. My cheeks burned
with shame, and her look of contempt out
mo like a knife. That the reproach was
deserved I knew at once, for tho man in
my grnp gave a start, which proved that
the information was not lost upon him.
"Wbo told you?" tho woman went on,
clutching the child jealously to her breast,
as though sho saw herself menaced afresh.
"Who told you almut the Lion wharf?"
"Never mind," I answered gloomily.
"'I have made a mistake, but it is easy to
remedy it." And I took out my knife
again. "Do you go on and Ijuvo us." .
I hardly know whether I meant my
threat or no. But my prisoner bad no
doubts. He shrieked out a wild cry of
fear which rang round tho empty court
and by a rapid blow, despair giving him
oournge. be dushed the hunting knife from
my band. This none, be first Cur 3 him
self on me, then tried by a sudden jerk to
free himself. In a moment we wero down
on tho stones and tumbling over one an
other in tlio dirt, while he struggled to
reach bis knife, which was still in his gir
dle, and I strove to prevent him. The
flsht was sharp, but it lasted barely a
minute. When the first effort of bis de
spair was spent, I came uppermost, and he
was but a child lu my hauda. Presently,
with my knee on his chest, I looked up.
Tho women were still thero, tho younger
clinging to tho otner.
"Go! Go!" I cried impatiently. Each
second I expectod tho court to lie invaded.
for tho man bad screamed more than once.
Hut they hesitated. I bad boon forced
to hurt him n little, and bo was moaning
piteously. "Who are you?" the elder
woman asked, she who had spoken all
"Sav. never mind that." I answwd.
"Do you go. Go while you can. You
know tho way to tho wharf."
"Yes," sho answered. "But I cannot
go and kavo hiiu at your mercy. Remem
ber be is a twin and has"
"He is a treacherous scoundrel," X an
swered, giving bis throat a squeeze, "but
bo shall bave ono more chance. Listen,
sirrah," I continued to the man, "and
stop that noise, or I will knock out your
teeth with my dagger hilt. Listen aud
bo silent. I shall go with these Indies,
and I promise this if they are stopped or
hindered on their way,- or If evil happen
to them nt that wharf, whose name you
had better forget, It will bo tho worse for
you. Do yon hear? You will suffer for
it, though there 1 10 a dozen guards about
you. Mind you, " I added, " I have nothing
to lose myself, for I am desperate already. "
Ho vowed, tho poor craven, with his
stuttering touguo, that ho would bo true
and vowed it again and again. But I saw
that bis eyes did not meet mine. They
glanced instead at tho knife blado, and I
knew even while I pretended to trust him
that bo would betray us. My real hope
"lie it a trcnrhcroiu tctnindrd."
lay In his fears and in this that as the
fugitives knew the way to the wharf, and
it could not uow be far distant, we might
reach it and go on board some vessel I
had gathered they were flying the country
before this wretch could recover bimself
and get together a force to stop us. That
I was my real hope, and in that hope only
' I left him. - - v
I Wa went as fast aa the
wais. 1 din not trouble them with ques
tions. Indeed I had myself no more lei
sure than enabled me to notice their gen
eral apiiearance, which was that of com
fortable traihsmen s women Jolt, laeir
clonks and hoods wero plainly fashioned
and ol coarse Etui; their shoes wero thick
and no jewel or scrap of lace peeping out
betrayed them. Yet there was something
ju their carriage which could not be bid-
don, something which, to my eye, told
tales, so that minute by minute I became
more sure that this was really an adven
ture worth pursuing, and that London bad
kept a reward in store for me besides its
cold s turns and inhospitable streets.
Tho city was begiuuing to rouse itself.
As wc flitted through the lanes and alley
wf.l'-li lie between Cheapsido and tho rivet
wo met maity people, chiefly of the lower
classes, on their way to work. Ye t in spite
of this wo had no need to fear olwervation,
fur, though the morning was fully come,
with the light bad arrived such a thick,
choking, ycilow fug as I, being for tbs
most part country bred, bad never expe
rienced. It was so dense and blinding that
we bad a difficulty in keening togethut
and even hand u band could scarcely see
ono another. In rry wonder how my com
panions found their way I presently failed
to notice their condition and only remark
ed tho distress and exhaustion which one
of them was suffering when she began,
notwithstanding all ber efforts, to lag bo
hind. Then I sprang forward, blaming
myself much. "Forgivo mo," I said.
'You are tired, and no wondor. Let me
carry the cj.tld, mistress."
Exhausted ns sho was, she drew away
from uio jealously.
"Ao," she panted. "Wo are nearly
them. I am better now." And sho strain
sd the child closer to her, ns though she
feared I might take It from her by force.
"Well, if you will not trust me," I an-
swred, "let your friend carry it for a time.
I can sea you aro tired out."
Through the mist sho bent forward and
peered luto niy face, her eyes scarcely a
foot from mine, Tho scrutiny seemed to
satisfy her. r-ho drew a long breath and
beld out her burden. "No," sho said.
You shall take. hint. I will trust you."
I took tho little wrapped up thing as
gently as I could. "You shall not repent
it if I can help It. mistress"
"Bertram," she said.
"Mistress Bertram," I repeated. "Now
let us get on and loso no time."
A walk of a hundred yards or so brought
us clear of tho houses and revealed before
us, In place of all elso, a yellow curtain of
fog. Below this, at our feet, yet apparent
ly a long way from us, was a strange, pale
lino of shimmering light, which they told
mo was tho water. At first I could hardly
bclievo this. But, pausing a moment
whilo my companions whispered together,
dull crcaklngs and groanings and uncouth
shouts and cries, and at last the regular
beat of oars, came to my cars out of the
bank of vapor and convinced mo that wo
really bad tho river before us.
Mistress Bertram turned to me abrupt
ly. "Listen," sho said, "and dccldo for
yourself, my friend. Wo are close to the
wharf now, and In a few minutes shall
know our fate. It Is possible that wo may
ba intercepted at this point, and if that
happen it will ba bad for mo and worse
for any ono aiding roe. You have dono us
gallant service, but you aro young, and
I am loath to drag you Into perils which
do not belong to you. Take my advice,
then, ojid1 leave us now. I would I could
reward you," she added hastily, but that
knave has my pnrso."
I put the child gently back Into nor
arms. "Uoodny," sho said, with more
feeling. "We thank you. Somo day I may
return to England and bavo ainplo pow
er" "Not so fast," I answered stiffly. "Did
you think it possibju, mistress, that I
would desert you now? I gave yon back
the child only becauso it might hamper
me and will bo safer with you. Come.
let us on at onco to tho wharf."
"You mean it?" sho said.
"Of a certainty!" I answered. Bottling
my cap on my head with perhaps a boyish
touch of the braggart.
At any rate, she did not take mo at once
at my word, and ber thought for me touch
ed me tho mora because I judged her I
know not exactly why to be a woman not
ovcrprono to think of others. "Do not
bo reckless," sho said slowly, her eyes In
tently fixed on mine, "I should be sorry
to bring evil -upon you. You are but a
"And yet," I answered smiling, "there
is as coed as a price upon my head already.
I should bo reckless if I staid bore. If yon
will take me with you, let us go. We bave
loitered too long already."
She turned then, asking no questions,
but sho looked at mo from time to time in
a puzzled way, as though sho thought she
ought to know me as though I reminded
ber of some one. Paying little heed to
this then, I hurried ber and her compan
ion down to tho water, traversing a stretch
of foreshore strewn with piles of wood and
stacks of barrels and old rotting boats, be
tween which tho mud lay deep, fortu
nately it was klgh tide, and so we bad not
far to go. In a minute or two I dlstin
puished the bull of a ship looming large
through Uio tog, and a few more steps
placed us safely on a floating raft, on the
far side of which the vessel lay moored.
Tnere was only one man to bo seen
lounging on the raft, and the neighbor
hood was quiet. My spirits rose as Hooked
round. . "Is this the Whelp?" the tall lady
asked. I had not beard the other open
her mouth since the encounter In the
"Yes, it Is the Whelp, ' madam," tha
man answered, saluting her and speaking
formally and with . a foreign accent.
"You aro the lady wbo Is expected?"
"I am," she answered, with authority.
"Will you tell tho captain that I desire to
sail Immediately, without a moment's de
lay? Do you understand?" '
"Well, the tide is going out," quoth the
sailor dubiously, looking steadily into the
fog, which bid tha rivor. "It has just
turned,. it is true. But as to sailing"
She cut him short. "Go, go, man! Tell
your captain what I say. And letdown
a ladder for us to get on board."
He caught a rope which bung over the
side, and swinging himself up disap
peared. We stood below, listening to the
weicd sounds which came off the water,
the creaking and flapping of masts and
canvas, the whir of wings and shrieks of
unseen gulls, the distant bail of boatmen.
A bell in the city solemnly tolled eight.
The younger woman shivered. Tbe
cider's foot tapped Impatiently on the
flanks. Shut In by tbe yollow walls of
fog, I experienced a strange sense of soli
tude. It was as if wo three wore alone in
the world, ws three who had ooioe together
so strangely. -
