Eventually persuaded, the clerk

Alan's impatience was so great that
he could hardly wait to examine these

such cases. His intentions, however,
were nothing more blameworthy than
to return her to the arms of her doting
parent. I know, because I sleuthed
after 'em, even to the house of Seneca

The several hours that ens- --
fore the rear lights of the special were
brought to view were none too many
for the task imposed upon Alan of
overcoming the scruples of the en
gineer and fireman.
Another minute, and less than fifty,
feet separated the two-the special'
train and the light engine, both hur
tling through the light at top speed.
With a word to the engineer Alan
crept out along the side of the boiler,
with only a greasy handrail and a nar
row foothold between himself and
what meant death, or something close
ly resembling it, should he be shaken
off by the tearing wind and the sway
ing of the locomotive.
It seemed an hour before he worked
himself up to the cowcatcher-now
within four feet of the rear platform
of the special.
On this last he could see a woman's
figure indistinctly silhouetted against
the light through the door, and beside
her a man in a white coat, clinging for
dear life to the knob of the door-1
holding it against the frantic efforts of
some persons inside to tear it open.
Another hour of suspense dragged
out-or such was the effect-while the
light engine with intolerable slowness
bridged those four scant feet.
At length it was feasible to attempt
the thing. Rose (he could see her
strained white face quite-plainly now)
was half over the rail of the car ahead,
ready to jump.
His heart failed him. It was too
hazardous a risk. He dared not let her
Something very like a shot sounded
from the train and something very like
a bullet whistled past his cheek, and
proved the signal for several more.
Strangely, that knowledge steadied
his nerves. Straining forward and
holding on to a bar so hot that it
scorched his palm, he offered a hand
to the girl on the rail.
Her hand fell confidently into it. She
jumped. His arm wound round her as
she landed on the platform of the cow
catcher. He heard her breathe his
name, then hurriedly passed her be
tween himself and the boiler to the
footway at the side. The fireman was
waiting there to help her. Alan turned
his attention to Barcus.
To his dismay he found tVat the en

was widening rapidly as Barcus re

over the rail.
