of his boms that- made the bed on
which he lay a fiery furnace; it gave'

He took up the difficult part and, after
the superficial anguish dulled, com
plained no more and successfully coun
terfeited cheerfulness and betterment.
He said nothing of the curiously, re
current 'and sickening fnh of. pain,
searching and deep seated, that took

lie thanked fortune now for -the
chapel game. Few enough In Aulstou
would care to see the unfrocked, dis
graced rector of St. James. -He did not
know that the secret was Bishop Lud
low's own until the hour wlion he
opened his eyes after a fitful sleep
cpou the Titter's face.
The bishop- was tho Urst visitor, and
it was his tirst visit, for he had been
la a distant city at the time of the fire.
Waiting the waking, be had been mys
tified at the change n few months bad
wrought in thecouutenaneeof the man
whose disappearance had cost him so
many sleepless hours. The months of
indulgence and rich living on the
money lie had won from Harry had
taken away Hugh's slightness. and his
fuller chocks were now of the coutour
of Harry's own. nut the bishop dis
tinguished new lines in the face on the
piliov.", an expression unfamiliar and
puzzling.' The linuness and strength
were gone, and in their place was ft
haunting something that gave him a
flitting suggestion of the discarded that
he could not shake off.
" Waking, the unexpected sight of the
bishop Btartlod Hugh. To the good
man's pain he had turned his face
"My dear bey." the bishop had said,
"they tell mo yon nre stronger and bet
ter. I thank God for It!"
He spoke gently and with deep feel
ing. How could he tell to what ex
tent he himself, in mistaken severity,
had been responsible for that unaccus
tomed look? When Hugh did not an
swer the bishop misconstrued the sl-
the route - lay ;'. through the town of
I Smoky Mountain. . Yet who would
dream of: looking for a fugitive from
the law In the secluded car that carried
a sick man? The risk would be small
enough, and it was the one way open. -
On the last nfternoon before the de
parture Hugh asked for the clothes he
had worn when he was hroucht to the
hospital, found the gold pieces be had
snatched In tiie burning chapel and
tied them in a handkerchief about his
neck. They , would srffice to buy his
sea passage. The one red counter he
had kept It was from henceforth to be
a. reminder of the good resolutions he
had made so long ago he slipped into
a pocket of the clothes be was to wear
away, a suit of ' loose, comfortable
tweed. ; ' -
Waiting restlessly ; for the hour of
his going, Hugh asked for the news
papers. Since the first he had had
them read; to hlni each day, listening
fearfully for the .hue and cry. But
today the surgeon put his - request
"After you . nre t,bere." he said, "If
F.ishop Ludlow will let you. Not now.
You are almost out of my clutches, and
I must tyrannize, while I ran.' - --.
A quick look passed from him to his
assistant as- he spoke, for the newspa
lers that afternoon had worn startling
headlines. The sordid affairs of a
mining town across the ranges had lit
tle interest for An is ton, but the names
of Stires and Morcau on the clicking
wire had waked it thus late to the sen
sation. The professional caution of the
tinker of human bodies wished, how
ever, that no excitement should be
added to the unavoidable fatigue of his
patient's departure. -
This fatigue was near to spelling de
feat, after all, for the exertion brought
again tho dreadful stabbing pain, and
this time it carried Hugh into a re
gion whore feeling ceased, conscious
ness passed and from which be strug
gled back finally to find the surgeon
bending anxiously over him.

latter couSded to his assistant an hour

window aftr the receding carriage.

the glars musingly with his. forefinger.
"It's cnrlous." he said after a pause.

The special car which the bishop had
ready had been made a pleasant Inte
rior. I'ern boxes were in the corners,
a caged canary swung from a bracket,
and a softly cushioned couch had been
prepared for the sick man. A moment
before the start, a3 it was being cou
