pany or young men from a sailboat, ana
go hurriedly to his room, without look
ing in her direction. By and by he re
appeared in evening dress, and Gwendo
line remembered there was a dance that
evening in the house. Shortly after Miss
Marquand came down in pale blue gauze,
with myrtle about her fair bare shoul
ders, looking vnusually pretty.
They meant to defy her, Gwendoline
perceived. Vincent's vanity could not
endure her dismissal. She was to be
made to suffer for it.
"Let me speak to you a moment," she
said chokingly, as she passed him com
ing from the dining room.
"It is useless. You have said enough,"
was his low reply.
"But I have reflected carefully and I
want to speak with you."
He thought she had relented that she
was stooping to reconquer. A thrill of
exaltation went through him. He had
tafc'm the right cue in avoiding her. He
saw how she was to be brought to terms.
He answered indifferently:
"Pardon I am not a man to be put
on and off like a glove. Miss Dane."
She passed on. He had misunderstood
her. That was bitter. But she must
endure it all.
Vincent and Julia Marquand led the
german that was danced that evening.
Gwendoline forced herself to accept a
partner. It wa3 Saturday evenmg, and
the house was fall of gentlemen. It was
whispered about that there was some
thing amiss letween Miss Dane and her
lover, and half a dozen young fellows
crowded around the. southern beauty
as rfie was called. She was very calm
and gentle, but she did not permit her
self any retaliation in the way of flirta
Vincent was annoyed with himself, an
noyed with Miss Marquand and with
the world in general, but he had gone
oo faf to stop short. He didn't mean to
have it said that he was not ready fur
the rupture which had evidently oc
curred. So he was animated, and ap
parently enjoying himself.
The ball ended at midnight. The
guests went out to see some rocket
thrown to a pasrfng steamer, and in an
hour everything was silent but the boom
of the breakers under the sultry skv.
Another hour still, and then some
sleeper, awakened by a glare upon his
chamber wall, started, to hear the omi
nous crackle of burning woodwork, and
then through the great crowded hotel
rang the cry of "nre!" Through the
corridors breathless women, some with
children in their arms, flew half dressed,
choking the stairways between the
scorching balusters: while men hoarse
with shouting thundered at closed doors.
The great structure burned like tinder.
The flames leaped in riot, licking the
peaks and gables with long, fierce point
The shuddering guests, so narrowly
escaped, huddled helpless, watching the
raging destruction. Suddenly a wom
an's voice shrieked through the silence:
It was Miss Chatworth. She had been
roused among the first, and Miss Dane
had led her to the stairway, which in
her confusion she could not find, and
started her down. She supposed that
Gwendoline had followed, but a rapid
search and repeated call convinced the
miserable g-oup that Gwendoline was
not among them. A second later and
some of the men were hastily, wordless
ly, fetching a ladder from the barn.
They had seen two women s faces at an
upper window the window of one of
the servants' rooms.
Alex Vincent had seen them, too had
seen that one, calm in her white gown
in the rosv glow of the spreading flames,
was Gwendoline Dane, and that a frantic
colored girl was clinging to her as they
looked out on death together.
No pangs of an Inferno could be more
terrible than Vincent's emotions. In
that instant he knew how for time or
for eternity he loved Gwendoline Dane.
He flew madly toward the burning
house. The proprietor, a cool, strong
man, who was helping raise the ladder,
threw himself in v incent's way.
"We will save them from outside, he
said. "It is simply suicide to enter the
house. And." he added, as Vincent
pushed him frantically aside, "I shall
not permit it.
Vincent paid no heed.
"Stand back!" cried the landlord vio
lently. "Bring blankets. I am going
up the ladder."
Vincent stumbled on. Some one heard
"It is just as well. I will die with
her. I was not fit for her.
No one knew how he found his way
throuch the smoke and heat. But there
he was at the window. The colored girl
had iuimed at command and was safe.
A 6hout of cheer went up. lint Gwen
doline, strong nerved as she was, shrank
from the leap. They saw her swerve
"For heaven's sake, jump!" cried a
She was giddy. The smoke was pour
ing from the "window, when Vincent
wized her in his arms, leaned forward.
and issed her on to the strong, excited
arms that clambered to receive the load.
An instant later he was crawling on the
ledge, steadying himself in the gasping
heat, and plunging headlong for his liie.
The tmoke ico pouring from the window
when Vincent seized her.
"Only a broken arm only one casual
ty," said the country doctor, unctuously,
at the end of his hasty examination of
the rescued people, taken hastily into
the cottages of the region round.
"Yes young Mr. Vincent has a com
pound fracture of the right arm. Every
one else is safe and sound. A provi
dential escape I call it a providential
"I say, Gwendoline, we needed an un
commonly fiery ordeal to find out what
we thought of one another but I guess
we know now, for sure," said Vincent
some weeks later, his arm still in a sling,
to Miss Dane, walking slowly beside
him along the sands.
"My life is yours you saved it," said
the girl quietly a happy quiet.
"Blame it! Gwendoline, what did you
go up after those girls for, anyhow?
They were sure to escape."
"I was afraid no one had aroused
them. But I'm not posing for a hero
ine. That night I didn't care what be
came of me."
"I was a brute," said Vincent. "I de
served to have both arms broken."
Gwendoline leaned toward him. "I
won't be jealous any more."
"If you're not I shall think you don't
care for me," replied Vincent.
And then, in happy lover fashion, both
laughed. True Flag.
