"I will tell her that I know him when I come

No weloomo voice greotod her. Was Ilarbara

Noiselessly she atolo np to tho couch and knelt

"Hsrbara," she said, aoftlri "I liavo something

The thin, patient face did not turn towards ber.
"Do you hear me, Uarbara?" aho cried, laying
her face down bosldo tho one turned from her un

Wuat waa there In that ley touch that sent auob a
thrill of horror through tho girl's heart 7 With a
low, startled cry, lonlo ga.eii down Into tho rigid
faco lying so still and white within tho little atrip of
whlto moonlight. Tho half-open glazod eyoa
flashed no look ot recognition up Into her own.
Then a piercing shriek rang through tho lonely
room!
' ' Oh, Uod I Dirbara la dead I"
Yes, she was dead, leaving Ionle, ber darling,

"Thank Uod, the building is empty I" cried n

some one pointed upward. Simultaneously the
vust throng raised tholr oyes and beheld tho Figaro
of a young girl clinging to the shaking timbers of

Looking down at the surging mass of horrified
