You know, I believe, how I backed uiy opinion to the tune of sev eral hundreds? Tin bucking It still, Lady Starklo: I'm backing It still that's nil." It was not all. He went on to tell nil Erlchxen had gone through, ;o his knowledge, lu the settlement; how he wus tryiug In his munll way to make up to the poor fellow for tko shocltlug Injustice of his fate, and yet how even now the unlucky wretch went In danger of his neck, as Lady Starkle had seen for herself, and ail for siding with some bushrangers un der elrfiimstanres of extraordinary compulsion and provocation combined. Of all tliis James Daintree spoke so feelingly and with such an obviously earnest purpose thut Lady Starkle was quite moved and undertook to use her Influence with Claire In the matter of the convict servants. Hut It was of no nvall. , Daintree drove the ladies Into Syd ney and drove back alone late nt nixhf. Tom awaited him, and as they walked from the stables to the house the mas ter's arm ran affectionately through that of the man. "My dear fellow," he said. "It grieves me more than I can say. but I cannot go against my young wife where there Is apparent right upou her side. She will have no convicts In her house. You and I will t compelled to part." ' It was Imund to come," was Tom's reply "I am only thankful It didn't come before you gave use back a little of what I have lost. I shall be grate ful to you till my dying hour." "Oil. but I've not done with Vou yet I must have yon out of this country by hook or crook-that I'm bent upon. That brute Sullivan Is actually at the Pulteney. Ft seems his overseer never meant to split oo you for some reason, but be did so when drunk, and now f the other holds hltu to It. Until we spirit you out of the country you'll sever le safe " "That doesn't matter." said Tom. "I would rather stay where I am and take my 'chance." He was thinking of Daintree and his wife Even through his gratitude be was thinking of that darker side. CHAITER XXXI. T TIAT was a long week at the bungalow. It was to culmi nate at St. Philip's church In Sydney on the Saturday morn ing The license was bought. The bridegroom carried the ring In his pocket Everrthlng was ready but a best man. And here another peculiar Ity stood out. There was no best map to be had. a In London ao in New South Wales. This baronet's son and heir, this man of blood and means and literary feats, was unbeloved In spite of all. Claire and her aunt had been absolutely the only guests at the bun galow In nil Tom's time there. Nor was It because Daintree bad never made a frieud In the settlement It was because be bad never kept one In any quarter of the globe. Meanwhile the ladies came to Rose bay no wore. The happy man went to them Instead and would stop till mid tight, to gallop home by starlight and mur out til happiness to Tom untii the harbor turned from jet to polished rteel; ad twice the steel was silver. and t'Uve the silver was flaming gold before the poet would hold bis peace, It was a long week, but the nights went uukker than the days. Daintree had never been a better companion than lu tho.-e long, confidential, star lit talks. They were not exclusively on the one subject Tom learned at hist how the murder Lad affected the party at Avenue Lodge, and one whole nlKht and day be acver closed an eye fur thinking of two men lu two new and startling lights. They were the living man Harding and the dead man Blaydes. The first haunted Toia the loucer. Why had htv Insisted on drag ging 1 a!n tree to the trial? The days were lengthened by Teggy In the kitchen, with her kind, uninjured looks and the unfailing, friendly, amla ble word that made hint feet the mean est of men. The girl could be an angel when she had him. with all his cold ness, to herself. He never suspected what she bad been front the Sunday night to the Monday afternoon. And now they were both tinder notice to leave. "If only yon two would make up your minds to marry.'' said I'aintree to Tom. "1 have you lioth on my mind, but I could provide for the two of you at one stroke as a married couple. It has long been my wku to start a model farm up country, and you nd I'eggy would certainty make model managers." Hut Tom shook bis head more decidedly than be bad shaken It while the little ltosamund was prick' Ing her way across the chart On the Friday, the tame breeM hold ing good all the week. Daintree decided to sail round to Sydney Instead of driv ing. Ho bad a solid check to cash for the wedding trip, and the I'olnt I'lper road was no route for pocketful of money and a life at Its very highest value. Tom asked If Nat Sullivan was still In Sydney and waa told that he had drunk himself prostrate at the rtiltenej. whereupon Tom volunteered for the voy!, and so escaped Peggy for one afternoon. To make safety doubly safe, however, they ran into Farm cove, and Tom and tht dog were to wait in the Domain while Daintree went to the bank aud called at the hotel. It wn then 8 o'clock, and Daintree was to Ix at least two hours gone, but he relumed In less than one. bringing Claire with him for a sail. Tom's sur prise at seeing her was less than that of the girl at sight of him. The Indig nation wot eltogthrr on her aid? and sufficient!? perceptible In spit? of Claire's r-.Ti-fii ti couc?.il an l.:-,.-'tro prlate II:;i;. .::.. Daiireo did not see It, but v'.ut thoy all three missed was the fn-iivj liguro which emerged from the t!v:-s aT the boat put oil. Claire w,: ;;;ve.i tlio tiller and told: simply to tl:;,- orders, Dalntroe tool: j the sheet, aLl Tom was put Into thi i bows to be out of the way. The sail I made a convenient screen. It also pi'e- veuted To ti from knowing in the least I what luinp ( 1. As a matter of fact.! they were Jiu-.t taking the wind which j was by this time fresher than ever when Dr.Iutree'8 attention was divert-; ed by an apparition at the water's! edge. It wus the man who had follow-! ed him thvoiifli the Domain, and so rapt was tin; gusso with which Dalntreo ! beheld him that he forgot to let th.. sheet go ut the critical Instant. Smack came the wind against a sail like the , side of a house. "Let go! Let go!" screamed Tom. It was too late. She was gunwale under. The sail lay n moment on the water, drinking It likt blotting paper. Then the saturated j canvas suiil;, and the boat tossed keel upward within fifty yards of the shore. Claire sank clear of the wreck and had the presence of nilud to strike out before coining to the surface, and even as the sun lashed her wet eyes strong hands slid under her arms and slm wus being pushed face forward to the shore. The trees were waving lu the sua. It was no distance, anil Da in tree's dog was swimming happily on ahead. Sud denly, with a piercing yelp, the dog dis appeared. At the same moment Dain tree began splashing vigorously, and when the smooth sand came under Claire's feet, but a few yards farther ou, her knees were too weak to sup port her weight. "The happieet moment of my life," said a deep voice la her ear. "I have saved" She turned, and there was Daintree. up to waist in water, with the drops raining from his face and whisk ers and shaded eyes sweeping the blue. The boat was coming In keel upward with the tide. The dog and Tom had vanished off the face of the waters, r Daintree dashed in again and met the wreck as her mast struck bottom. Tom was still struggling underneath her. caught fast in the cordage. Ills struggles ceased as be was wrenched free. When Daintree got him to land his mouth and cars were lu a froth. and Claire stood by like a woman turn ed to stone. A small crowd collected slowly. It did not contain the man who bad caus ed the mischief. The trees had swal lowed him once more. The crowd surrounded Tom and Daintree. who had stripped bis servant to the waist and was sawing the air with the drenched white arms and the helpless sunburnt bands. Claire stood on the fringe of the crowd, without a slear thought In her bead, but In her Hand a packet that had fallen at her feet when Tom's shirt and vest were torn off and hurled aside. The packet was sowed up In dripping oiled silk as transparent as glass. Through it she could read a name she but dimly re alized to be her own. and the voices of those jostling her seemed fat away. "He la alive." said Daintree, looking np. "Has nobody run for brandy?" Xohody bad. And It was wanted now for two peo ple. Claire Harding bad swooned away. Daintree hud his bands full with the pair of them, but in a little they were both conscious and able to drive owav with him In a hired chaise. They drove to the hotel, forgetting the risk. On the way Tom stretched forth a feeble band. "How many more times are yon go ing to save my life?" be asked. "You saved mine, too." said Claire sadly. "It was nervous work after the way my poor wee dog went." said Daintree. "Did yon see that. Claire? Poor thing! It was a shark r "Yes." She shuddered. "Hut If he will bnt splash a bit. your man of courage Is all right. Do you Daintree va$ mwtng the ulr uHth tht drenched vhlte urm$. tulnd If we drive round by the Herald office? They publish on Monday, bat It's just as well to be In time." So the conceit of him overlapped even his heroism. And Claire and Tom sat shivering lu their wet clothes, while Daintree In bis was several min utes Inspiring and alt but dictating the paragraph which duly appeared In the Sydney Herald. Hut during those tuln ntcs the pair In the chaise never ex changed a word, and afterward, lu the hotel, not one word. CIIAPTEH XXXII. AINTKEE was driven borne be for6 liusii, fur his pocketbook was bloated with moist bank notes, besides which Lady StarUie positively refused to have him about the hotel that evening. It was against the rules for bridegrooms as laid down by her ladyship, who dined very solemnly with her niece alone and got to Ijpd at a reasonable hour for the first tiaie that week. Claire then had their sitting room to herself, and she drew out thq olied silk packet which had fallen intj her hands that afternoon. It wasthln and oblong, like the letter It plainly contained. Un der the lamp Claire's name and the address of her old home were still leplble beneath the silk, though they no longer stood out ns when the skia was .wet. And on the reverse side was written very small, ' For pity's sake, forward this." When? After his death? Fate had forwarded It liefore. Should she read or destroy or return this letter to Its writer to the criminal who had con fessed to her his crime? Some min utes after Claire Harding asked her self this question she turned up the lamp and cut the oiled silk open with a pair of scissors. She now saw that the letter had been written some time, yet It was with a strange thrill, a won derment beginning at the heart, that she read the heading within. It was Newgate and the date May 29. 1S37, the blackest day of ell her life, the evo of that on which they would have hanged him. Agitated as she was. however, by these dreadful memories and touched by the mere fact of his having written to her on that awful Monday, It was the first sentence of his letter that ran Into her heart like molten lead. lie called himself an Innocent man! From the brtnk of the grave came that He. that blasphemy, which he had lived to confess to her with bis crime! Sh? read on mechanically, and ail at once her pain ceased. She was lost and absorbed In the plain, straightforward, circumstantial story into which be plunged without preliminary. He told her everything from the moment they parted at the garden gate. Nothing was left out. nothing extenuated, noth ing enlarged or even commented upon by the writer. Her heart was beating wildly long before she reached the end of this plain statement She had for gotten all cbout tls confession. This rang true: ;Ms rang true. "Sweetheart." be went on "for I must cnll you so once more I cannot tell you bow I feel, for I vary from hour to hour Now and then I feel the murderer they say I am. now and tnen an abject coward 'without the pluck to show lt, now and then a sort of Christian martyr. But with God's help I hope to finish up a man. Do not grieve for the ugly way of It There's no disgrace in that since It's a mistake, and If there Is a God never fear but he will make it up to me one day. Ob. but It is sweet to talk to you again! 1 used to tell you everything, and so I must until the end. "The turnkeys are looking through my grating now. They are telling each other what I am at and coming back and back again to have a peep. My Christianity isn't proof against that I lay nothing, but I could do the thing I am going to die for God help me. I may do it yet! You see how I change. There Is only one thing In which I can never change my grateful love and reverence for the great girl soul that forgave me and would have given me another chance if this bad not hap pned. Sweetheart my love for you Las grown in prison: It has been my only comfort in this vile place, and It will go with me where I go tomorrow it will stay with my poor soul through all eternity. Only do not grieve for me, Claire, for 1 never was worthy of your sweet love. I would not leave this behind for you, I would not have you reminded of me for a single day, but for one selfish tiling. Sweetheart, It Is to make you believe in me. You have not done so yet. Why nhould you? Nobody knows what you know and have so nobly bidden, but, for all I said to you. I am Inno cent. He was alive when I left him I did give him the receipt and we shook bands at the end. That Is God's truth. I tell It you with the last words my band will ever write. I meant to write to the kind fanatic who paid for my defense and Is working still (they tell me for a reprieve, but now I can not. If you could find him out and thank him for me, I should be grate ful. but my last words In this life must be to you. God bless you. dear, and give you somclMxly much letter than I ever could Lave been. Only do know that I never did this thing, and when you realize that think no more of me, my dear love, but pray totnor row for the soul of your unworthy boy' Ills slgnnture followed, better w: ten than the rest, a touching effort to "finish up a man." All the Inst pages were blurred with the condemned man's tears, and now after seventeen months her tears were raining, raining, on the same paper, on the same words, that bore the biota of bis. 1 This postscript remained: "Keprleved at the last moment! t shall not send this now, but t hope that It may reach you when I am gone." Claire went to the window, and the rings rattled along the rod as the flung the curtains back. The hotel garden lay very still be low. It was the back of the house, and now the hour waa late. Suddenly there was a movement on the gravel under heath. "Claire, la It your voice r He whlspcredlt was Tom. "Yes." she said at last. "Come tip. I want to speak to you." "Now?" "Yes!
