wrist and covering her mouth tightly
with his palm, dragged her behind a
clump of dogwood bushes. A heavy
step was coining along the wood-path.
le held her motionless and breathless
in this cruel grip till the pedestrian
had passed. It was Major Bristow, his
spruce white hat on the back of his
head, his unsullied waistcoat dappled
with the leaf-shadows. He stepped
out briskly toward Damory court,
swinging his stick, all unconscious of
the fierce scrutiny bent on him from
behind the dogwoods.
Greef King did not withdraw his
hand till the steps had died in the dis
tance. When he did, he clenched his
flt and shook it in the air. "There
he goes!" he said with bitter hatred.

ahout her and~ shut her eyes. Catching

had been a kitten. "Ye ain't seen mec,

The child's face was paper-white
