Perhaps two minutes later a succes
sion of remote crashings began to be
heard, a cumulative volume of sounds
made by some heavy body forcing by
main strength through the underbrush,
and ceased only when a man broke
into the clearing, pulled up, stood for
an instant swaying, then reeled to a
seat on the log, pillowing his head on
arms folded across his knees and shud

who had subsequently died while ata

Since that event, the man had suc

landmarks. Then, after a night passed
without a fire in the lee of a ragged

sun rising in the west and the rest of
the universe sympathetically upside

stumbled and blundered in the maze
of those grimly re'ticent .fastnesses, for
the last few hours haunted by a fear
of failing reason--possessed by a no

An impish malice glimmered in his
sunken eyes as he kept her waiting
upon his pleasure. And when at length
he decided to speak, it was with a ring
of hateful irony In that strangely
sonor'ous voice of his.
"Rose," he. said slowly-"my daugh

guilty of an act of disloyalty to me."
She said coolly: "You had me spied

She waited a significant moment,
then dropped an impassive monosyl
lable into the silence: "Well?"
"You have visited the man Digby,
servant and friend of the man I hate

She said, without expression: "Yes."
"Repeat what passed between you."
"I shall not, but on one condition."
"And that is?"
"Tell me first whether It was you
who sent the rose to Alan Law-and
more, where Judith has been during
the last fortnight?"
"I shall tell you nothing, my child.
Repeat"-the resonant voice rang with
inflexible purpose-"repeat what the
man Digby told you!"
The girl was silent. He endured her
stare for a long minute, a spark of
rage kindling to flame the evil old eyes.
Then his one living member that
had power to serve his iron will, a
hand like the claw of a bird of prey,
moved toward a row of buttons sunk
in the writing-bed of his desk.

bent over and prisoned the bony wrist

took from it a revolver which she
