"I read of you when you led your regiment into Germany. I was in a trench myself for five days at a stretch. Those things don't really matter. Five daya was quite long enough there In the mud. We didn't worry about soap then. Get on with It, please." Number Twenty-nine closed his eyes as he shed his last garments. Then he drew on Gerald'* Presently the gov ernor laughed, "Upon my word." he declared, "It is better than I thought. I have ordered the barber into the next cell. He is a prisoner himself, so there is not much chance of hta blabbing. Come along. We will be hack In live minute*" he added, turning to, Gerald. "In time to take your orders for lunch, eh? Give you time to settle down." They passed out. Gerald felt a queer sense of loneliness as the door closed half fearfully. Everything was worse than he had feared. The floor was of concrete, and there was not a single article of furniture of any description In the room except a straw mattress already full of holes The floor had apparently not been swept for week* While he sat there, however, there was tbe click of a key in tbe door and a burly Russian entered. Without a word he commenced some effort at cleansing tbe place. When he bad finished, he threw In a rug and disap peared. Gerald breathed a little more freely. Then he heard footsteps out side again. The governor and Num ber Twenty-nine entered, tbe latter curiously changed In appearance. "By all the saints." the governor chuckled. "I never realised that the barber was so wonderful a person ! This little scheme of mine marches well. Now. then, for your share." He handed a fountain pen to Gerald, who Indorsed the draft he hud brought, wrote out a further check for a thou sand pounds, and handed them, to gether with his American passport, te Krossneys. The latter thrust a docu ment Into Number Twenty-nine's pocket. "You may not know It," be said, "but yon are now the owner of live hundred acres of forest where oil may soma day he found." Me ri>*red with laughter. Neither of the young men moved a muscle. "Now, listen, both of you." he went on, "the opiy automobile in the town «watts une outside. We depart in a minute Say your farewells, you two. At one o'clock tomorrow morning," he concluded, turning to Gerald, "you will be moved into cell *101.' and later yon will go to attend your own funeral. From now until one or perhaps half past one tomorrow morning, you will have to make the best of It. I will come and superintend your removal myself and let you know that all Is well." "I shall try to sleep until then." Gerald announced. "I am very tired." "You shall have a little meal In my office In the Intervals of being changed." the governor promised him. "I shall lock the d«*>r and no one will know. Now. Mr. Hannon P. Cross, please. American speculator who haa bought my oil field* come with me. I am going to drive you to the train." Number Twenty-nine held out both his hands to hla deliverer. There was a simple dignity In his few word* "Sir," be said, "I know nothing of you. but my life will not be long enough for me to express my gratitude, the day after tomorrow—'' "Tbe day after tomorrow there will be much for us to talk about,",Gerald interrupt«). "What I have done, I have done Joyfully. So far. it has been much easier than I expected." The governor and his charge took their leave. The door closed behind them. Gerald heard their footsteps die sway on the paved floor. He threw himself down on the mattress end tried to sleep. It was an Impos si hie task but there was plenty te think about. At one o'clock tbe rame burly Russian entered, bearing a bowl sf something which was half stew, half soup. Gerald smelt It looked at it and set it In a distnnt corner of the room. Then he walked bark and forth, count ing bow many paces ft took him from wall to wall. Presently, with a throb of Joy. he remembered hla cigarette He smoked two cigarette* case. Afterward, be dosed for a little time. Toward evening, he amused himself trying to make bis predecessor's daily Jump, It was not until the seventh at tempt that he succeeded, and then the rust of the bars cut so deeply tote palms that be let go almost at once. At eight o'clock, the Russian appeared «gain with a bowf Of soup similar to «he tom. Gerald waved it away. "Hot hungry T the man asked In Gerald shook hi# he»4L ether. It was i relief ft» find that he net shut out altogether from com itlou with the outside world. Geranin, toF* he asked. -Ton to entT Gerald begged. "Can't i bave some beer?" The man held out his band and Ger ald titled it with silver. He disap peared and returned presently with two bottles of beer concealed ln hU baggy trouser* and a loaf of bread. "Not understand this," lie said, atoak Inc hla head. "Where Number Twenty nine gone?" Gerald «book his head. "Better ask no questions until the governor comes hack." be enjoined. "No fear talk." the man declared with a laugh. "Governor given me twenty marks. If tnlk, I get twenty lashes instead. Goodnight T He departed*finally, Hosing and lock ing the door behind him. Gerald ate some bread hungrily and drank the beer. Then for a time he dosed. When he woke up and loked at his watch, it was twelve o'clock. Very soon he would begin to expect the governor. He sat dp on the mattress with his back to the wall. Between twelve and one o'clock be looked at hla wntcii twenty times. One o'clock came and passed; half-past one. Then he rose to his feet and began pacing the cell restlessly. Two o'clock came; half past. He held his watch la hla hand now. to save himself the continual dragging it out from hta pocket. The great fortress apparently slept There was no sound anywhere. Only time went on. Three o'clock arrived and passed—four—five 1 Presently streaks of daylight began to appear. At six o'clock al last there were footsteps outside. The warder entered once more. This time he carried a Jug of hot liquid. "Tea." he announced, "from kitchen Give me something." Gerald gave him more allver. The tes was the color of straw and water, but the faint smelt of It was refreshing. _"\Vhere Is the governor?" lie asked. The warder shook Ills head. "Not ask questions," he begged. "Governor not here." Gerald pulled himself together and dismissed the man. He drank the tea slowly. _ Once more he sat down on the mattress. The room now was a little lighter. He could see as far as the opposite wall. He sat down and wait ed. Every none In his body seemed tingling. He tried to keep hla mind off tlte subject of wbat -could have happened to detain the governor, to turn hla thoughts back to .England. He suddenly found himself by the road side, watching the mending of the puncture, looking Impatiently along lb* part of another world. He remem bered those few furious moments when white ribbon of road which led Jo Canne* and. beyond, to Monte Carlo, where the lights were burning and the violins were playing their pagan over ture. He saw MyrHIe's pale, terrified face gleaming out against the back ground of the cypres» trees, heard her pathetic story throbbing in the pine sweetened stillness. He remembered their drive. Al) those things seemed Christopher hnd taken her from his arm* A faint feeling of shame crept over him as he rat there, huddled up. Then, with s ruah, came the memory which swept everything else out of his mind. He saw Pauline, felt the dis turbance of lier presence, remember«! the slow ebbing away of her pride, her _ _ Brsf few kind word* the half-spoken promise. What was there about her. he wondered vaguely, which bad brought him. with all his experience, so completely to her feet7 She had shown him no kindness. She had not even been gracions. He hkd read dis like In her eyes more often than any other feeling. There remain«!, too. the pitiless troth that all the fa bought. Indirectly If not directly. Yet there she was. ruling ever his life, tbq one sweet, dominant figure, for whose rake he sat In these miserable clothe* a forgotten figure—perhaps, even. In danger. He took out his watch with trembling fingers. It was ten o'clock. His thoughts mocked him now. Be could find no es cap e by means of them. He could think of nothing but the present. Something had gone wrong with tbeir plan* What would It mean for him 7 Not s soul In the world knew where be vs* If be bad a name at all here, it was tbe name of tbe man whom tbe people of Rus sia had once threatened to tear limb from limb. At last there came a little stir, an unaccustomed sound of voices. Pres ently he heard footsteps outside, the key turned in the lock. His heart turned sick with disappointment—-it was the wards* alone 1 Gerald dug bis bond once more lu to bis pocket. This time lie brought out a note. For or-other he was terrified. Even the stolid features of his visitor seemed dlstorbedl "Where is tbe governor?" Gerald demanded "See, there Is this note If you will g» and fetch him."

Thàt little orange-colored form might have meant so much morn, I so much food for her ambition* her I natural and proper ambitions for the I man she loved. It might have been such a pledge for the interest of tbeir life together, such a wonderful Ufa.

In her quiet way. aha had for years looked upon her mar rtage with Christopher, sooner or later, as a certainty. Without tbe slightest desire in any way to mislead her, Christopher bad subconsciously encouraged the Idea. She knew per fectly well that, as soon as hta position was a little more assured, he had In tended to ask her to be hla wife. It was one of those pleasant yet wonder fui arrangement* which seemed to de velop automatically.

And now tbe dream had crumbled, This slip of paper was nothing but a friendly message, telling her of the success of a friend with whose career she had no Intimate concern. Her disposition was too kindly not to !e«i fl certain amount of pleasure at his success, but that very pleasure brought its shadow of personal grief. She sat looking Into the Are, twisting tbe "little slip of paper la her hand* She knew very well that she was cursed with that one terrible and self mortifying virtue, the unalterable fidelity of the woman who permits In her mind the thought of one man only and who can never replace him. The very thought of marriage with any one but Christopher was revolting. It seemed to her. as .he rat there, she was doomed to a career of love lessness and Inutility.

She had puzzled Christopher It was perhaps natural that her thoughts should turn to Myrtilq. She wondered for a moment, slowly and painfully, at the instinct which hsd warned her of coming trouble when the two young imur had Told her nf their adventure. She had felt It when first she had seen the frightened child, whose unspoken appeal for protection had met with so cold s response from her. She had been conscious of s sympathy. Well, she was punished now. The child had Justified all that she had felt. Hhe had robbed her, un consciously and unwillingly, of the greatest thing In life, there, tbe telegram crumpled up in her fingers, all that old hardness came back to her. It seemed to her a bit ter thing that this unknown child should have been brought into the august household In which her owe days hsd been spent, to rob her. the benefactress, of the crown of her Iff* to draw the sunshine from her days and send her down to a Joyless grave. For a moment she was on the verge of a passion. She hated Myrtile, hated tbe sight of her gentle move ments, the thought of her and all to do with her. She rose to her feet with an unaccustomed Are In her eye# and swung round—to find that the slight noise which had disturbed her medi tations had been caused by the en trance of Myrtile herself, (TO BB CONTINUED. ) As she rat Historic Battis The name Battle of tbe Giants is to a battle fought st Msrlgnano (now Ma léguons) near Milan.
