He paused on the platform and
glanced at bia watch. The train on
which he had Just arrived was late.
It hurried away from the station, and
was swallowed tip In the blackness of
the tnnnel, as If It knew its own short
comings and wished to make up for
It was five minutes of six, and as
the young man looked back at ths
long flight of steps that led to the
.Bridge across the tracks, a delicate
penciling of electric light flashed into
outline against the city's deepening
lusk, emphasizing the lateness of the
lour. He had a dinner engagement at
even, and it was yet some distance
to his home, where a rapid toilet must
be made if he were to arrive on time.
The stairway was long, and there
were many people thronging it. A
shorter cut led down along the tracks
under the bridge, and up the grassy
Under the center of the bridge a
slight noise behind him. aa of soft,
hurrying footsteps, caught his atten
tion, and a woman's voice broke upon
his startled senses.
' "Please don't stop, nor look around,"
It said, and the owner caught up with
lilm now in the, shadow. "But will
you kindly lot me walk beside you for
a moment, till you can ahow me how
to get out of this dreadful place? I
am very much . frightened, and I'm
afraid I shall be. followed. Will you
tell me where I can go to hide?"
After an instant's astonished pause,
lie obeyed her and kept on, making
room for her to walk boelde tint, while
lie took the place text to the tracks.
He was aware, too, of the low rumble
of a train, coming from the mouth of
His companion had gasped for
breath, but began again In a tone of
"I saw yon were a gentleman, and j
- I didn't know what to do. I thought .
you would help me to get somewhere
Just then the fiery eye of the oncom
ing train burst from the tunnel ahead, j
Instinctively, the young man caught I
his companion's arm and draw her I
forward to the embankment beyond
the bridge, holding her, startled and
trembling, as tho screaming train tore
Tho man's first though was to get
out cf the cut before another train t
ihould come. Ho grasped his compan-
ton's arm and startod up the steep i
embankmcLt, realizing as he did so
that the wrist ha held waa slender,
and that the sleeve which covered it
was of the finest clolh.
As they emergod from the dark, the
man saw that his companion was a
young and beautiful woman, and that
she wore a light cloth gown with
neither bat nor gloves.
At the top of the embankment they
paused, and the girl, with her hand at
her throat, looked backward with a
shudder. - Sho ceenicd like a
bird that could scarcely tell
way to fly.
Without an instant's hesitation, the
young man raised his hand and bailed
a four-wheeler across the street.
"Come this way. Quick!" he urgod,
helping hr in. He gave th driver

panion, and was suddenly keenly
aware of the strange situation In
which he had placed himself.
"Can you tell me what is the mat

like to go?"
The g'.rl had scarcely recovered
breath from the long climb and the
fright, and she ' acewored h'.m In

"I could not think of letting --you ;

he ought to be more cautious with a

"Oh. I must not tell you! I couldn't!"

The carriage came to a sudden stop,
and, looking out. he saw they had
reached his home. A new alarm
seized 1pm as the girl moved as if
to get out. His dignified mother and
hie fastidious sister were probably not
in, but if by any chance they should
not have It ft the house, what would
they think if they saw a strange, hat

carriaga with him? Moreover, what
would the butler think?

his home with his latch-key, ha heard
the butler's well trained voice answer

any trouble then except to take two
plates' off the .table" he laughed
pleasantly "and you would have even
couples. You see," he hastened to dd,
as he heard Mrs, Parker Bowman's
preliminary dissent "you see, Mrs.
Bowman, I'm in somewhat of a predic
ament myself. My train waa late, nd
as I left the station I happened to
meet a young woman a a friend."
(He reflected rapidly on the old pro
verb, "A friend In need is a friend
indeed." .In that . sense she was a
friend.) "She le temporarily separated
from her friends, and is a stranger in
the city. In fact, I'm the only ac
quaintance or friend. she has, and I
feel rather under obligation to see
her to her hotel and Jook up trains

"Now, look here. Tryon Dunham,

care how old an acquaintance she is!

if she'll come. Besides I didn't mean

but I may as well tell you now
Judge Blackwell is to be here, with his j
wife, and I especially want you to
meet him. I've been trying to get
you two together for a long time."
"Ah! "'breathed the young man, with
interest. "Judge Blackwell! I have
wanted to met him."
W ell, he has heard about you, too,
and I think he wants to meet you. Did
you know he was thinking of taking a
partner into his office? He has al
ways refused but that's another story,
and I haven't time to talk. You ought
to be on your way here now. Tell
your friend I jivlll bless her forever

won't she? I was defending on Miss
Mayo for that this evening."
"Well, you might be able to per

young man at the 'phone, as he strug
gled with one hand to untie his nock
tie and unfasten his collar, and men
tally calculated how long It would take
him to get Into fcio dress suit.

He poked, back into the closet and
discovered several wraps and evening
cloaks of more or less elaborate
style, but the thought came to him
that perhaps one of these would be
recognized as Cornelia's. He closed
the door hurriedly and went down to
a large closet under the 6tairs. from
which he presently emerged with hie
mother's new black rain-coat. He
patted his coat-pocket to be sure he
had -the gloves, seized his hat, and
hurried back to the carriage, the hat

rain-coat dragging behind him. His
only anxiety was to get out before

time," he said apologetically, as he
closed 'the door of the carriage, after
giving Mrs. Parker Bowman's ad
drees to the driver. In the uncertain
light of the distant aro-lamp, the girl
looked email and appealing. He felt
a strong desire to lift her burdens
"and carry them on his" own broad
"I've . brought some things that I
thought might help," he said. "Would
you like to put on this coat? It may
not be Just what you would have se
lected, but it was the best I could
find that would not be rlcognized.
The air is growing chilly."
He shook out the coat and threw it

gratefully, slipping her arms into the

relieved to ' find it black. While he
untied the strings, there had been a
growing uneasiness lest the hat be
one of those wild, queer combinations
of color that Cornelia frequently pur
chased and called "artistic."
Tne girl received tne nat witn a
grateful relief that was entirely sat

"And now," said he, as he pulled
out the gloves and laid them gravely
in her lap, "we're invited out to din
"Invited out to dinner!" gasped the
"Yes. It's rather a providential
thing to have happened, I think. The

"I naid you were a stranger in

The cab began to go slowly, and
Tryon Dunham noticed that another
carriage, just ahead of theirs, was
stopping before Mrs. Bowman's house.
There was no time for halting decision.
"My friend," he said earnestly, "I
cannot leave you alone, and I doi
not see a better way than for you to
go in here with me for a little while,
till I am free to go with you. No one
can follow you here, or suspect that
you had gone out to dinner at a
strange's house. Believe me, it is
tho very safest thing you could do.
This is the house. Will you go in
with ' me? If not, I must tell the
driver to take us somewhere else."
"But what will she think of me,"
she said in trepidation, "and how can
I do such a thing as to steal into a
woman's house to a dinner In this
way! Besides 1 am not dreesed for
a formal occasion." '
; The carriage stopped befere the
door now, and the driver was getting
down from 'his seat.
"Indeed, ' she will think nothing
about it," Dunham assured her, "ex
cept to be, glad-that 'she has the right
number of guests. V; Her ' dinners are
delightful x affairs usually, and you
have nothingto do 'but talk about im

as ' if ehe ' were a freauent
guest in the house, but it waa in' some
;trep;(lcOoa . that Tryon ' Dunham re
moved his overcoat and arranged his
gnmpse or thia assembled company,
and knew that Mr. Bowman ' waa
growing impatient for his dinner. His
heart almost failed him now that the
girl was out of sight. What if she
should not prove to be accustomed to
society, after all, and should show it?
Hew embarrassing that would be!
He had seen her only In a half-light
as yet. How had he dared?
But it was too late now, for he was
coming from the dressing-room, and
Mrs. Bowman was approaching them
with outstretched hands, and a wel
come In her face. ,
"My dear Miss Remington, It is so
good of you to help me out! I can
eoe by the first glance that it is going
to be a privilege to know you. I can't
thank you enough for waiving formal

i Miss Remington was seated next
to Dunham at the table, with the
Judge on her other side. The young
man was .pleased with, the arrange
ment, and sat furtively studying tlx
delicate tinting of her face,, the dainty
line of cheek and chin and ear, the
oweep of her dark lashes, and the
ripple of her brown hair, as he tried
to converse easily with her, as an old
At. length the Judge turned to the
Ctrl and said:
"Miss Remington, you remind me
strongly of a young woman who was
la my office ..this afternoon.". -.
The young, man. looked down at the
glrU and - saw ' that '. her i dress was ia

also that she wae ' very young 'J ana
