She looked about for Teresa. The
girl was gone, no one knew whither.
Bray alone could say that she had

to accompany Jane when she hurried

Spanish girl who had' been her stanch

shook his puzzled head as no followed
her with hi3 gazet It had come to him
suddenly that the Spanish girl was not
the solution to the puzzle after all.
Jane found the slim, boyish figure
lying on the ground, deep In the wood.
She had been crying and made no at
tempt to subdue her emotions when
the Amerienn girl came up to her; in
stead she bitterly poured out her woe
into the ears of the other. She told
her of Bray's insult as she termed his
unfortunate speculation and she told
how it came about. ."
"I am a good girl, Miss Cable," she
cried. "I am of a noble family. You

dear," said Jane.. "Come! You shall
wear the nurse's uniform. We are to

wounded can be moved by that time."
It was three days, however, before
the little company left the village and
began its slow, irksome march across

from hidden riflemen, but there were
no casualties. Food had been scarce.
The commissary was thinly supplied
for the hard trip. Lieutenant Bray
grew strangely morose and indifferent
He was taciturn, almost unfriendly, in
his attitude toward every one.
The little company stopped to rest in
a beautiful valley beside the banks of
a swift stream. He watched Jane as
she moved away from the stretcher
which held Bansemer, following her
to the edge of the stream where she
had come to gaze pensively into the

and a warm glow came into her cheek.
"He Is doing nicely. If be can bear

should, Lieutenant Bray?"
"Quite, Miss Cable. It Isn't an easy
march, you must remember." After a
long silence he suddenly remarked
"Miss Cable, I've got a rather shameful
confession to make. I ve had some
verv base thoughts to ' contend with.

care a great deal for you, more than
for any one else I've ever known. You

She stared at him with consternation
in her eyes. He bad gone on so rapid

speech. Her hand went to her brow,
and a piteous smile tried to force itself
to her lips.. .
"I am sorry, she said at last. -I am
sorry you have spoken to me of it I

"No; I am not his daughter."
"Not even that. You come from a
proud southern family. I do not know
who my parents were."
"Good heaven, you you don't mean

"A waif without a name. Lieutenant

Not a word of his father's conduct
toward her, not a word of blame for
the blow his father had struck. She
held him to no account for the base
ness of that father. Only did she hold
herself unfit to be his wife.
Fortune and strength went hand in
hand for the next two days, and the
famished, wornout company came to
the coast The wounded men were
half delirious once more for lack of
proper attention and the hardships of
travel. But the 111 wind had spent its
force. Bray's instructions were to
place his charges on board ship at
San Fernando de Union and then
await further orders In the little coast
town. It meant goodby to Jane, and
that meant more to blm than he was
willing to admit despite all that she
had said to him. He went to her when
the ship was ready to leave port.
"Goodby," he said. "I'm more griev
ed than I can tell you, because I be
lieve you think I am a cad."
"Lieutenant Bray, a cad never would
have helped me as you have helped
me in spite of yourself. Goodby!"
He went out of her life in that mo
ment There were vexatious delays, how
ever, before, sailing. Almost at the last
moment Jane was approached by Te
resa Velasquez, now partly dressed as
a Red Cross nurse. The Spanish girl
was nervous and uneasy. Her dark
eyes held two ever changing lights
one somber, the other bright and piercv

Jane In surprise and distress. "What
"It is impossible.' .1 cannot go with
you. Pray do not ask for my reason.
Goodby. Will you say goodby to to
him for me?"
. Jane was silent for a long time,
studying the eyes of the Spanish girl.
"I think I understand," she said at
last, taking Teresa's hands in hers.
"It is better that it be ended here,"
said Teresa. "I have endured It as long
as I can. You . have been good to me,
and I want to say goodby while there
is love f or you In my heart. I am
afraid to stay near you and him.
Don't you see? I cannot go on In this

"Yesr yes; I know it Is wrong. But
how can I help It? I've loved him ever
since I first saw him saved his life."
Jane was astounded. The thrust pierc

"Saved his life?" .
"Yes, though he does not know it
It was when we were prisoners of the!
Filipinos. My poor brother was dying.
From, the convent Aguinaldo and bis
men were watching-and directing the
fight on the plaza. They paid no at
tention to me a girl. The noise of the
.fighting men was terrible, and I climb-'
ed up to a window where I could see.
Suddenly, below me I saw two men
fighting apart from the struggling i
mass. In. ajt instant It flashed through 1
my .nifnd that the. Filipino was over

him. Although I bated them equally.
there was something in the young sol

near me and fired. The Filipino fell.
In terror of the deedand fear of dis
covery I ran to my brother.. In a mo
ment the Americans broke into the
convent You know the rest."
Jane was suffering the keenest nanss
of jealousy and asked excitedly:
"lou you did that?"

care for him nud he was wounded, to

"As much to be proud of" Jane was
