the book of great truths, which, by the
way, is the primer of the citizens of
the world," continued Trevor, "is the
axiom that success begins at the point
where a man stops asking for favors
and starts giving then. You'll get the
connection when I remind, you that
the possessor of a million of anything
can always give favors."
"A whole cotillion," agreed Andrea.
"Faving a million, I shall have no
difficulty in bulling a railroad across
Africa with other )eople's money, and

Visible. It reminded him df one of the
marvels of his boyhood. An old man
had said to him* one dawn, "Hear the

Andrea was like that; she was un
furling as though in the morning of a
new youth. Never had her eyes been
brighter; never her cheeks so quick
to play with fire. Incidentally, she was
fuli of .a devil of mischievous remin
"It's all a .great joke now, young
lady," Trevor would defend himself,
"but if you'd seen what I have of per
nicious malaria, you'd keep grave for
a year. I've seen three Swahilis that
had nourished mosquitoes from their
youth up, fall like dogs, one after an
other, within a mile and a half of an
infected camp and the best of them
weit stone blind for a month."
"Did you nurse them, White Man?
Did you see them through?"
These were the questions that drove
him nearest to desperation, but the
gleam in the eyes above the demure
mouth from which they issued inva
riably warniedil him of the trap in time.
He was on his guard; he knew that
there were things between him:1 and
Andrea that speech would turn into
glstly skeletons walking by (lly and
which only consiteilt silence Could
entolb. But so deep had grown his
syipathles that even in this he under
stood her. It was not that she was
perverse, but that. her prie demanded

About those things which miglt have
arousedl a legitimate curiosity, she
asked few questions. Without a word
of inquiry she saw him ldespa teh t welve
picled mn1 on some mysterious mis
ston whose intriencies and imiportaince
nleessitated a preliminary paliver of
an hour's duration. IEqually silent, she
watched his detailed preparations of
a well-appointed safarl. Tents were
brushed and set to air; cots and mat
tresses put out for a sun-bath ; provi
sions of all sorts packed in one-load
cases; water boiled, filtered and hung
in canvas coolers. Only a few days
before, Just such -signs as these had
made her heart heavy with unanswer
able questionings, but her illness had
changed all that. The successive mo
ments of the throbbing present each
in its turn filled her whole horizon.
She knew instinctively that he had
somethilng )ig ip his sleeve, and that
he would shake it out on the slightest
provocation. She also had a long mIem
ory, and had no difliculty in recalling
Ills exact boast as to what he would
do when she was well. Ile was going
to take her in free fight. She was well
now, she reflected; she had never felt
better in her life, and if there was one
thing she hungered for more than an
other, it was the promised combat.
There is no telling how long An
drea's innate stubbornness would have
held out, nor at what point Trevor's
exasperation would have driven him,
for their wordless contest was inter
rupted by an event whlich he had both
foreseen and feared. They were sitting
at a table after dinner on a
cloudless night, brilliant under a
full moon, when a fir-avay sound

chair andl leaned forward, his whole
blody tense in tihe effort of listeining.
It camne aga'in, a ghost of a sound that
gradually assumned substnance and
rhythmic form until after flye long
minutes it \vas recogizablle as the

Instantly Trevor was on his feet. Hie
issued ordlers to Bathtub, whlo inlune

white portion of the camp). They had
dressedl thlat night for dinner, not as5 a
celeblration or any special event, b~ut
because thley were b)oth bored with
too mluchl time on their hands. Trevor
now excusedl himself to Andrea and
withdrewv to his roomil. In a fewv min
utes he reappeared garbled in his
roughest khaki shirt and trouisers. is
face was grave as he adlvancedl on
Andrea with a nod towardl her hut.
"MacCioster will be here in half ain
hlour," lie stated. "I ask you to go to
your room, close and( lhar bo0th doors
andl stay there unltil I call you."
Wilthout waiting for her commlaent,
he turned and left her. She sat on,
withl narrowedl eyes, until she had( finl
