SYNOPSIS-The 8 of Hearts.is the
"death-slgu" employed by Seneca
Trine in the private war of vengeance
which, through the agency of his
daughter Judith, a woman of violent
passions like his own, who was inno
cently responsible for the accident,
which rendered Trine a helpless crip
ple for Ufo.Ainu is in love with Rose,
j mi? d's twin and double, though lo all
else her opposite. Judith vows to com
pass Alan's death, but he saves her life
under dramatic circumstances and so,
unwittingly and unwillingly? wins her
love. Thereafter Judith is by turns an
imated by tho old hatred, the new love,
and jealousy of Rose.
For upwards of three-quarters of an
hour of that golden morning which
followed the night of his return to New
York, Mr. Law was permitted to es
te ?rn himself the happiest of mortals.
Tho beginning of the period was
cynchronous with the slam of a taxi
cab door that shut away a superflu
ous v. jrld from tho company of two
y/bo loved, .
That Bound spelled safety as well aa
success In Alan's understanding. Fur

away from the curb, pursued only by

touch or hie whisper.
And reminding himself of the strain
imposed upon her by the experience
through which they had Just passed,
Alan excused her unresponsiveness on
grounds of reaction, and for the time
felt constrained to let his sweetheart
rest and regain her normal poise;
there was bliss enough for him in the
consciousness that ho hod won her
safely away, that nothing now more
than a short hours' drive across town
and by ferry across the Hudson stood
between them and the marriage that
should provo the consummation of all
their tr Iain. . . . Barring accident!
Alan hod too often suffered the
penalty of disappointment for over-in
dulgence in this falling of his Xor de

the mental reservation, "Barring acci
dents!" with a little shiver of dread.

cognizant of his daughter's escape.
Alan argued, interference must have
Despite the reassuring aspect, the
preoccupation of his companion so
wore upon him that he was presently
no longer able to refrain from disturb
"Rose!" he begged again, closing a
hand tenderly over hers. "Dearest
girl, dont worry another instant. Do
calm yourself; remember wo are same

heart! and everything ls going to be
well with us from aow on. Over in

to marry ns; and down at tho White
Star dooli thu boat is waiting that is
to carry us off to England the moment
we're married. Think of that-and that
I love, you. Nothing can possibly break
the strength of that combination."
"Alan!" she breathed gently. "It
can't be true! I'm trying so hard "to
believe-but all the while I know it
can't be true!"
He converted a skeptic with the
mute eloquence of his lips. . . .
Head upon his shoulder, the girl
clung passionately to him. "Tell me
again that you love me!" she prayed.
"Promise me you'll never, let anything
come between us. Promise rae, Alan

"I am afraid . . ." she whispered.

"You cant he sure. What If you were

caught her breath and added hastily.

"And make believe tor a little we're

She closed her eyes again: "Yes."

At that instant the taxicab rolled
aboard tho ferry-boat; the deck ?ates
