^ in midsummer, in one of
Atlio upper roomaof the principal
hotel nt Mt. Desert,
^ ^ stood a girl of varo and
wonderful beauty, donning
Mr armor for the coming fray?an
armor whose breastplate was invisible,
whose weapons were hidden, but none
the less impenetrable and keen for
that.
Hor maid had put the finishing
touches to a toilet of most artistic
loveliness, ller deep blue eyes were
black with excitement and triumph.
Three nights bcfoie she had received
a challenge?not ail openly-worded
challenge, but fully understood for all
that. Of course she had accepted,
though her acceptance was tactic, too;
but she and Jack Raymond understood
It, and each other. No more was necessary.
They required 110 witnesses
among the wor??\
Sho h M mot him only a week before.
She h not known him ten minutes
before she felt ho was one of the few
whoso friendship sh \>u!d be glad to
possess?nay, more, *.v :n she would
fee) pride in bringing within the scope
of her power.
Of course she would escape herself;
of that si)** had no passing doubt. Shelind
played with lire too long to fear its
scorching now. She was already in
her twenty-second year, and numberless
as were her victims, no one of
them possessed a single trophy of even
a momentary triumph. Why, then,
need she fear to add a fresh name to
the list?
"You have a heart? I should like to
make il stir!-'
This had been the challenge, spoken
In low, earnest tones, heard only by
herself and the listening moon sailing
in its awakening beauty in tin? ether
?it)ove their heads.
"Is it in your sight so poor n thins
you wish to make of it a toy?" she had
answered, Hashing one bewildering
jjlanec into his down bent face.
"(live it to nie lint for an hour aiul
see the use that I would put it to. You
will not willingly, I know, but I mean
to make the struggle for its possession."
"You would glory in my defeat,
tlien?"
.. ,?wn > innn, n? i.iu n uy in:n
uante. Most women would <-.ill it victory,
since for nil ^o ;rrudi;iiiKiy iriven

It was a fitraniro n novel way of
w?oimr, ami ii hold .1 fas.ina'ion of its
own. Most men h:vl apH-oarhe.l her .is
supplia'nts, carefully hiding their mode
of attack upon th > citadel of hor affection.

it. This man h ddly asserted not only
his method, but laughed ( > scorn her

smote her heart.
The days glided 011. The moon fulled
and waned. A month had passed since
Jack Hnymond had tluug down the
gauntlet, and she, with fearless fingers,
had stooped and picked it up. A

John Mgbtsey, at Brunson, and was
given a life sentence. Eventually ?ie
was pardoned by tho governor, but th'o
pardon was conditioned upon bis nevifireturning
to South Carollua. As ho violated
this condition, the sheriff thinks
he can get Dennett and have him
servo out his life sentence in the penitentiary.
Tho other charge against Bennett
Is one of murder. Ho is charged with
having murdered his wife several
weeks ago at Brunson. Bennett do
clared it was an accident, and tho
Coroner's tury accepted his version of
tho killing und discharged him.
Since his discharge, Dennett hns
been to Charleston, to North Carolina
and finally landed in Savannah day
before yesterday. He then enlisted in
the United States army ,and was to
have left for Port Caswell, N. C.
Dennett emphatically declares thr.t
he shot his wife accidentally; thxt she
had got up in the night without bis :
knowledge, and that as sho was re- j
entering the room he had fired, thinkin"

Bennett, who ia about thirty-two I
years old, 1k?s employed eounaol, and
