If he could uprlng out free, whnt a scattering he would make nf them ! They stopped, entering some sort of doorway, and rested the canoe on the ground. Toncz lighted n candle, nnd Drnce saw that he was In an old cabin, almost ready to fall. They rolled him out on the floor, face down, nnd beneath his nrms they passed the paddle of the canoe, so that he could not turn over. Then the others went out, leaving Tonez holding the candle. "Does the kind gentleman know why they gono7 They go to get the dry rushes' nnd the dead bark. For why? To make tho Are. It Is not cold, no? But they will mnkc the fire of tho cab in, nnd when the morning come, there will be tho ashes of the kind gentle man; nnd the people they will say: 'Ah, he He down to sleep, nnd .burn ' up.' " Draco heard them piling their mur derous fuel Into a corner. Again ho appealed to them, tried threats, told them thnt his friends would bang them; but they laughed, Tonez bend ing over him with the candle. "In a few minutes I light tho blaze and take the candle away . . . You talk of Stepho'n daughter. Remember sbo may love me some, too." "You Spanish devil 1" "The kind gentleman he come close. I'm Portuguese. But no matter. When Btopho come, wo tell him whnt we do, nnd ho pat us on the back and give us money. But the light would hurt the kind gentleman's eyes when ho lie thnt way on his jaw. I will not stoop so low Avlth the candle . . . Oh, whnt a line pile they got I It will mnko (he hlnzc beautiful. All ready, yes? I will touch It off." Drnce could not sue him, but he . heard the first crackle of the dried ruBlM1, utiw the flame dim tho candle light. Now he cried aloud, the 'men laughing, the mounting tlamc crack ling louder. Tonez came buck to him. "We leave you now. You will not need tills candle to light you to bed: so I blow It out, see? And I take It with me," . They hastened out, and he heard them laughing as they ran through the underbrush. With alt his harnessed might he strove to brpalt the puddle so that ho might roll toward the door, but It was strong, and he broke only the tip of the blnde. A louder crackling told him that the dry boards abovo were catching. Soon the roof would "We Leave You Now. You Will Not Need This Candle te Light You to Bed." , fall In ; great sparks would fly upward, fall nnd hlsi In the water. Why should he Ho there, seeing nil this In his mind, ho wondered. He had read thnt men appronchlng death sometimes speak foolish words, nnd here he lny. with his mind on trivial things. Soon ho would writhe In' a furnace. How all about him glared! Ho wondered how long It would be be fore a tongue of flame should lick him wltlt its agony . . . And then something touched his band, something cold and swift. A knife cut tho ropcB that bound him; nnd In his great and sudden Joy Draco almost lost his reason. But he did not cry out; no word was spoken. Just ono look, and then ho screened her from tho flumes as they fled through the door, out, through UfiUt. Inta Kie douse tho slmdow of the trees. Ami (lion lie spqket "God blew you, Nadlnel" lie hud held Iter linnd, lending her us tlioy run, but now In tho alinduw safe fmm danger. lOie withdrew It from him, mihI when he ronched ngnin to tnltc It, she shook tier bend. I nni around nnd I watch hint, with, tin. knlff. tn stub him If lio hurt my brave frlen them carry have killed Hid. Then In dim light I see ry the bout, and I think they ,d you; and I steal along to ; stab, but then I know you are In tho bont. All I do then was to watch till they go, and then I go In. It was not hard to do. No." "You are an angel." She laughed, shaking her head. "Angel9.do not go into the fire. They do not belong there . . . Now, I tell you. I show you the crooked way, through the woods and out to the river. The moon hns come, nnd we can see. If you know the way, you nre safe; but If you do not, you mire down and die In the ooze, nnd not In the flame. You would please follow me now." He followed her, hoping that she might be slow, to prolong the Joy of his being with her, but she was agile, walking swiftly. Sometimes she would turn slightly about to wnrn him of a dangerous place, and once she smiled, the moon full In her face. "Tell me," he Inquired then: "What has passed tonight, I hope, does not' change what wns set for Thursday." The land was beginning to rise, and she wns walking faster. "Thursday you may come." She halted In an open space nnd pointed townrd the river. "Tho bird, I hear him sing now. Tho mngnolln trees are over there. And now It was again good-night." She gave him no chance to detain her, for In an Instant she was running; nnd he stood looking till In the deep shade her form was lost. Old Stepho had not come home whon tho Creole girl reached tho houBe In tho swamp. Sho sat down to think and to listen to his footstep. lie did not come; and undressing, sho lay down, mused a long time nnd slept ... A knocking on the door and Stepho'n voice called her: "The sun ho was high, but tho Icctle gel she sleep." Soon sho came out, and he drew her to hhn nnd pressed his sandpaper check against tho coll of her hnlr. They sat where the house threw its cool slindc. Slowly he rocked in ills big chair,' looking up nt the cane that hid his homo. ( "This air, he good. . lie comes through salt marsh from tho Gulf, with not the malaria. You bloom al ways like the llowcr." "But, Father, when do we lcav here? It must not bo thnt we nre lice to live all the time?" "11a! The little bird wish to leave the ne.tt, to try her wings? That is tho way of birds and women. Soon, I sup pose, you will wish to ninrry sonic lino man and leave your old father." "No It Is not thnt I love you . . . But It Is lonely here, nnd " "Mr. Boyce, he is a fine young man. If you nmrry hhn, you would not so much leave me. I see him often. Ho buy from mc thc mules and cattle which I bring down from the hills. Why you no 'wish to marry him?" "But 1 do not love him." "You would soon learn ; ho Is a flno young num. I owe him much ; and ho know much about my business that he would keep quiet about If If he was of the family. And he would take you often to tho city and give you rich dresses and diamonds." "My dresses they are line enough. 1 have the diamonds, too. But you must know that I get loncsomo hero. I cannot piny with tho book all tho tlmo . . . You are going ngaln to buy cat tle In the hills, nre you not?" "I will buy thorn, yes." "And you must on Thursdny go to tho hills?" "Yes, on tho Thursday, I will go." lie fell asleep, for ho was tired; and when the sun came about, sho drew his chnlr Into tho shade. He opened his eyes, patted hor band nnd slept again. She hoard a slight sound, and looking, saw Toncz coming through tho cane. Swiftly sho advanced toward htm, with hand upraised, cautioning him. "You must mnko no noise, no Is asleep." "But I have come to tell htm thnt tho carpetbagger spy ho gono to como bnck not aguln." "Go awny, nnd you enn como back and toll him." "No, I stay and talk to you." Stepho's voice called out. "Toncz, come. I nm here." Sho did not wish to hear them talk. Sho looked at tho Portuguese and mused as sho walked away: "You do not know, you scorpion, how closo you como to the stab.

CHAPTER VIII It wns a long tlmo before Draco found a boat to sot him over to the opposlto shore. It was so late when ho reached tho Bothpage placo that he did not go up to his room. Tho houso was so quiet, the hounds themselves asleep, that ho stole Into tho garden to pass the remnlnder of tho night on & couch In tho summer house. Tho air was heavy with roses breathing in through tho lattice, nnd as ho straight oncd out, grateful for repose, this thought curao to him: (To Be Continued.)
