CHAPTER.
FOUR
RBA.KFAST at Shotover, Except
for the luxurious sluggards to
whom trays were sent, was
served In the English fashion,
any
other method or compromise being
Impossible.
Ferrall appeared to be a normal,
man, energetically devoted to his busi
ness, his pleasures, his friends and
comfortably in lovo with his wife. And
If some considered his vigor in busi
ness to be lacking in mercy, that vigor
was always exercised within the law.
He never transgressed the rules of
war, but his headlong energy some
times landed him close to the dead
line. He had already breakfasted when
the earliest risers entered the morning
room to sauuter abont the sideboards
and investigate the simmering contents
of silver covered dishes on the warm
ers.
The fragrance of coffee- was pleas
antly perceptible. Hen in conventional
shooting attire roamed about the room,
selected what they cared for and car
ried It to the table. Mrs. Mortimer
was there consuming peaches that
matched her complexion. Marion
Page, always more congruous In field
costume and betted Jacket than In
anything else, and always, like her
own hunters, minutely groomed, was
preparing a breakfast for her own
consumption with the leisurely preci
sion characteristic of her whether in
the saddle, on the box or grassing her
brace of any covey, that ever flushed.
Captain Voucher and Lord Alderdene
discussed prospects Vtween bites, at
tentive to the monos.,.
:.ablc
opinions of
Miss Page. Her twin brothers, Gor
don and .Willis, shyly consuming oat
meal, listened: respectfully and watted
on their sister at the slightest lifting
of her thinly arched eyebrows.
Into this company sauntered Slward
apparently no 'worse for wear, for as
yet the enemy had set upon him no
proprietary Insignia save a rather be
coming pallor and faint bluish shad
owsunder the eyes. He strolled about,
exchanging amiable greetings, and
presentlj^elected a chilled grape fruit
us his breakfast. Opposite him Morti
mer, breakfasting .upon his own dread
ful bracer, of an apple soaked ln-porfe
raised'his heavy Inflamed eyes with a
significant leer at the iced grape fruit.
Slward glanced put through the lead
ed casements into Ute brilliant Sep
tember sunshine.
-Outside he could see Major Bel weth
er, pink skinned, snowy chop whiskers

•with Sylvia Landis, who listened ab
sently, head partly averted. Quarrier
in tweeds and gaiters, his morning cl
gar delicately balanced in bis gtovgd
fingers, strolled hear enough to be
within earshot, and when Sylvia's in
attention to Major Bel wether's obser
vations became marked to the verge

Siward rose from the table, he saw
her turn on her heel and "walk slowly
toward a group of dogs preside^ ov^r
by some kennel men and gamekeepers.
She* was talking to the head game

house, but she
saw him on the

"Ton know, Mr. Siward, that It Is a
custom peculiar to Shotover House to
open the season with what is called a
Shotover drive?"
"I heard Alderdene talking about it,"
he said, smilingly inspecting the girl's
attire of khaki, with Its buttoned' pock
ets, gun -pads and Cossack cartridge
loops, 'and the tan knee klits hanging
heavily plaited over gaiters and little

"Are you my lady?"' he asked,
turning to Sylvia.
"IM you want me?"
In the Bmillng luster of her eyes the
tiniest spark Hashed. out at him, a
hint at defianc* for somebody, perhaps
.for Major Bel wether, who had taken
considerable pains to enlighten her as
to Slward's condltioh the nlgbt be
fore perhaps also for'Quarrier, who
had naturally expected to act as ner
gun bearer In emergencies.
'Tm probably a pooe shot," she said,
looking smilingly straight into Si-'
ward's eyes. "Rut if you'll take me"—
"I will with pleasure," he said.
"Dawson, do we draw for 'position?,
Very well, then." And he drew a
slip of paper from the box offered by
die head keeper.
"No. 7," said Sylvia, looking over his
shoulder. "Come out to tue starting

above the distant scrub of the fore

"You two. are certainty up against

one rougher line, and you're In "for
ttiorns and water and scramble
across the backbone of the divide."
"Is It any good?" asked Siward.
"Good—if you've got the legs and
Sylvia doesn't play baby"—
"I?" she said indignantly. "Kemp,
yon annoy me. And I will bet you
now," she added, flushing, "that your
old cup is burs."
'Wait,"-said Slward, laughing^ "Wo
may not shoot straight."
fYou will. Kemp, I'll wager what

"Gloves Stockings—against a ^ciga

Major Bel wether and the Tassol .girl

along'the line, taking prat, she saw
Quarrier and Miss Caithness. Captain
Voucher with {Mru, Mortimer and oth
ers too distant to recognize moving
across country with Rlitter and glint
cf, sunlight on slanting gun barrels.
And now Ferrall was climbing into
his. saddle beside his "pretty wife, who
sat her horse like a boy, the white flag
lifted high in t.he Sunshine, watching
the firing line until the last laggnrd
was In position.
"All right, Grace!" said Ferrall brisk
ly. Down went the white flag. The
tar ranged line started into motion
straight across country, dogs at heel.
From her saddle Mrs. Ferrall could
see'the advance strung out far afield
from the dark spots moving aloug jthe
Fells boundary to the two couples,
traversing the salt meadows ia. north.
Crack! A distant report cameTfaintly
over the uplands.against the wind:
"Voucher," observed Ferrall, "proba

FerraU shrugged. "He was uot of

how he is this morning."
"After awhile," his wife said,-."it is
going to alter him some day dreadful

Ton mean like Mortimer?"'"'
"Tes, only Leroy was always a pig."

"Well, that's all right, isn't It?" ask

"Tes, in a way. She has all the exi

bad no ending, no beginning. And at
last a rosy bar of light fell across the
waUi and the- warm, shadow* faded
from corner, and ^curtain, aud, turning
on the pillow, her face nestled in ber
hair, she fell asleep.
Nothing of this had Mrs. ferrall told
her husband. Nothing of this could
her husband understand had she words
to convey it There was nothing he
need_ understand except that his wife,
meaning well, had meddled *nd re
gretted
And now, turning in her saidle with
a pretty gesture of her shoulders:
"I meddle no more! Those who need
me may come to me. Now laugh at
my tardy wlsdotn, Kemp! The mis
chief take Howard Quarrier!"
"Amenl Come on, race."
Sho gathered brldle.: "D6 you sup
pose Stephen Slward Is goisg to make
trouMe?"
"How can he unless she helps him?:
Nonsense! Ail's well with Siward and
Sylvia Shall we gallop?"
Al! was very well with Slward and
Sylvia. They had passed the rabbit
brier country scathiess, with two black
mallard, a jack snipe and a rabbit to
the credit of their score, and were now
advancing through that dimly lit en
chanted land oif tall gray alders where
in the sudden twilight of the leaves
woodcock after woodcock fluttered up
ward twittering, only to stop and drop,
transformed at the vicious crack: of
Slward's gun to fluffy, balls.,pj? feather
whirling earthward from mld&i£'
Sagamore came galloping back with
a soft, unsoiled mass of chestnut and
brown feathers'ln his mouth. Slward
took the dead cock, passed it back to
the keeper: who followed them, patted
the beautiful, eager dog and signaled
him forward once more.
"Tou should have Bred that time,"
he said to Sylvia—"that 1b. If yon care
to kill anything."
"But I don't seem to be able to," she
said. "It isn't a bit like shooting at
clay targets. The twittering whir
takes me by surprise—ifs. ail so charm
ingly sudden—and my heart seems' to
*top- »a oae J?»at, ,and I look and look,
and then, whisk, and woodcock is
gone, leaving me breathless.""'
Her voice ceased. The white setter,
cutting' up his ground ahead, had stop
ped. rigid, one leg raised Jaws quiver
ing &d locking alternately.
"•Isn't that a stunning picture?" said
SiWand in a low voice. '"What a beau
ty he Is—like a statue In white and
blue veined marble. Tou may talk,
Miss Landis woodcock don't flush at
the sound of the human voice as grouse
do."
"See his brown eyes roll hark at us!
He wonders why we don't do some
thing!" whispered the girl. "Look, Mr.
Slward! Now his head is moving, oh,
so gradually to the left!"
"The bird is moving on the groundi"
nodded Slward. "Now the bird has
stopped."
"I do wish I conld see a woodcock
on the groundi" she breathed, "po
you think we might by any chance?"
Slward noiselessly sank to his knees
and crouched, keen eyes minutely busy
among the shadowy browns and grays
of wet earth and withered'Jsaf, and
after awhile cautiously he signaled
the girl to kneel beside him and stretch
ed out .one arm, forefinger extended.
"Sight straight along my arm," he
said, ''as though it were a rifleTlarrel."
Her soft cheek rested against his
shoulder, a stray strand of shining hair
brushing his face.
"Under that bunch of fern," he whis
pered, "just the color of the dead
leaves. Do you see? Don'i" you see
that big woodcock CQuatted flat, bill
pointed straight out and resting on the
leaves?"
After a long while she saw suddenly,
rrnd an exquisite little shock tightened:
