BRENT. A chance meeting with a dying
beggar, CHARLES NELLIN. who tells a
strahfte story, causes Brent to change
his plans for Helen's future. Shortly
afterward he tells Helen that in accord
ance with a promise given her parents,
he is now to reveal her identity and
she Is the only grandchild of a million
aire. CYRIL K. CUNNINGHAM. Brent
takes her to Cunningham and offers as
proof a locket containing a picture
which he had taken from the dying Nel
ltn. Pending investigation. Helen re

until she accidentally hits EVA feNNIS,
who has to be taken to the hospital.
Helen meets Eva’s brother ROBERT, who
1. lls In love with her.
junningham announces that Helen Is
his dead daughter's child and his heiress.
Brent Anris a lost locket which exactly
matches the one he had taken from
Nellin. To avoid discovery, he asks
Helen not to wear her locket in public.
A few days Inter Eva and Helen over
turn a canoe on the lake and Robert
rescues them. While changing clothes.
Eva tells Helen that she had lost an old
fashioned locket the night of her party.
Fearing Robert's attentions to Helen
ar.d annoyed bv the demands on him for
monev by CARMEL SEGFO. Brent tries
to think of a 'ale plan to secure Helen
and her Inheritance.
NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY
TT was several days before Brent
went up to Bramblewood follow
ing the Sunday afternoon of Bob's
.rescue of Helen on the lake. His
wlans had been slow' in maturing,
inasmuch as Helen's actions had an
Important bearing upon them.
On Monday he had telephoned
to ask her to come down to New
York and lunch with him. but she
said her grandfather's condition re- !
quired her to be with him.
The next day Brent telephoned !
a second time, only to receive the
same message. He felt it unwise to
be too insistent and on Wednesday j
he decided to drive up to Yonkers j
and see for himself whether if
really was the seriousness of her
grandfather's illness that kept
Helen at Bramblewood or whether
Bob Ennis had anything to do with
On that day Mr. Cunningham was
better and Brent was convinced that
he had not been so ill as Helen pre
tended. "She did not want to see
jne,” he conceded.
But his conclusion was a trifle
puzzling to him. because in man
ner she had not changed greatly
toward him She did not speak of
Bob. and Brent had no desire to
bring up his name.
Had he been able to question her
fully he would have learned that
concern for her grandfather had
driven all other thoughts from her
mind—all thoughts except the one
that she might need someone to
lean upon when death fiflally
become so dear to her.
Instinctively she turned to Brent
when she thought of being left en
tirely alone in the world. But it
was not the turning of one blindly
In love and Brent sensed the differ
ence, although he did not correctly

TOU musn't exhaust yourself

was pouring tea for him.. “I never

“I haven’t been out since Sun
“Don’t you think you could leave
your grandfather tomorrow and
come down to New York? W T e will
go to a matinee and I’ll have you
back here early."
“I’d like to.” Helen admitted. “He
is much better today; perhaps he
will be able to sit up tomorrow.
Time passes much faster for him
when he is at the window.”
“What does the doctor say about
“He says he is getting stronger.
I mean stronger than he has been
since Sunday, but that he never will
be w'ell again.”
“He might live for years.”
not for years, but tile doctor
said he might linger for months—
even a year. But any sudden shock
Krill kill him.”
Her words, serious as they were
to Helen, were of greater signifi
cance to Brent Even a few months
he told himself, might be sufficient
time for Helen to realize that being
in love and being in love with love
are two different things.
At that moment, in Leonard
Brent's mind, the seal was finally
eet upon Mr. Cunningham's fate.
•Will you telephone me In the
looming?” he asked Helen, “to let
,me know If you will lunch with
Helen promised, and shortly aft
erward Brent took his departure.
He did not go up to take leave of
He spent a restless night—not be

science, but because the daring of
his plan was perfectly apparent to
him If anything went wrong he

encouraged himself. “I’ve got to
Helen called him at 10 o'clock to
say she would meet him for lunch,
but that she could not stay to at
tend a matinee. Her grandfather’s
condition was slightly worse.”
“But I told him last night that I
might go down today,” she explained
to Brent, “and he insists that I go.”
“Tell him I'm much obliged,”
Brent said pleasantly. “I’ve missed
When he saw' her she showed evi
dence of being under a severe strain.
“We will lunch in some quiet
place,” he told her, “and then I’ll
drive you home. It will be good for
you to be out of doors.”
Helen welcomed the suggestion of
driving back to Bramblewood. “But
we mustn’t be too long at lunch,”
he pointed out, "or I won’t have
time to drive up. I promised to be
back to tea.”
a a a
HER information gave Brent a
new' thought. He began to act
cn it at lunch by ordering dishes
that would require special prepara
tion. Helen protected the delay, but
Brent assured her he would make
up the time on the road.
“You need to relax and stop wor
rying,” he cautioned her. A mo
ment later he signaled the head
waiter and w'hispered to him w’hile
Helen sat with her eyes closed, try
ing to overcome her weariness.
Presently a beautiful orchid
corsage was brought to her. She
put out her hand across the table
in thanking Brent and for a mo
ment he wondered if he had not
been unduly alarmed about Bob
But on the drive to Yonkers she
was silent and pensive. Brent hard
ened his heart to carry out his
plans, knowing that defeat for him
might w'ell be behind her mood.
He too fell silent and they were
only a short distance from Bram
blewood when that which he had
planned occurred. Suddenly, and
without apparent reason, the car
lurched to one side of the road.
Brent had allowed the front
w'heels to strike a rut and had not
attempted to control it. This gave
him opportunity to drive the car off
the road under pretense of getting
It happened so quickly that Helen
had no time to realize what Brent
had done. She though that he had
been careless, but she did hot ques
tion its being an accident.
They came to a stop in a weed
grown depression so deep that Brent
was unable to get the car back on
the road under its own power.
“I ll have to go for help,” he said
to Helen when finally he appeared
to accept the inevitable. “Fortu
nately. we are near Bramblewood.
They ought to be able to pull us out
with the service car.”
Helen started to climb to the
ground. "I’ll walk with you,” she
"If you don't -mind,” Brent ob
jected quickly, "I'd rather you
stayed here. I’ve some things in the
car that I shouldn’t like to leave
unguarded. Besides, you are prob
ably pretty badly shaken up. Better
wait here, dear.”
Helen sank back in the seat. She
was a bit unnerved and very tired.
The walk held no particular ap
peal for her.
“I won’t be long,” Brent prom
ised. and started off.
tt a a
WHEN he reached Bramblewood
he asked for Marks, and told
Ashe not to say in Mr. Cunning
ham's presence who it was that
wanted to see his attendant.
“Miss Nellin and I have met with
a slight accident.” he explained,
"and I wish to inquire if Mr. Cun
ningham's condition will permit us
to tell him of it.”
"He is not very good, sir.” Ashe
"Too bad,” Brent said feelingly.
“Try not to disturb him when you
send Marks down.”
When Marks came a few minutes
later Brent told him that his car
was ditched and asked him to send
someone to get it to Bramblewood.
"I’ll go up and reassure Mr. Cun
ningham,” he said, moving toward
"Please be careful. Mr. Brent,”
Marks replied uneasily. "He has
been fretting about Miss Nellin’s
absence. If he thought anything
had happened to her ...”
“I understand,” Brent said. "I
won’t excite him.”
But when he reached the sick
man’s room he was, even without
words, a startling visitor. He had
left his hat downstairs and his gray
ing hair was now wildly disordered.
With a jerk he had loosened his
tie. His coat w'as pulled off one
shoulder and one cuff of his shirt
w'as hanging below his tugged-up
Altogether he w’as as disheveled
as he could make himself. He burst
Into Mr. Cunnigham’s room with
the abruptness of a man who had
lost all his self control.
The invalid, watching the doer
for Helen’s coming, sat up with a
Brent came on. staggering slightly,
and clutching at his throat with one
hand, while the other groped for
support on the air.
Quite close to the bed he stopped
and. appeared to see the man upon
it, for the first time since he had
entered the room.
Mr. Cunningham’s face was as
white as his pillow and his eyes
were horribly distended. "What is
it?” he attempted to say, but there
w'as nothing more than a croak to
Issue from his blue lips.
"Oh, my God!” Brent cried, as
though the words had been wrung
from him in agony. "Helen! Helen!
She has been killed.”
