Tbe. play was played out, and tbe adventure was over, but life could not be as It bad been for Loveland. Be could not take up tbe old life or the old self where be bad dropped both one night lu Central park. He was a different man In these days, caring for different things, and unfortunately the thing lie cured for most was tbe one thing he could not bare Lesley Dearmcr's love. Being once more Lord Loveland and having a repentant New York at bis feet would not give him Lesley Dearmer. While be was thinking how good It would have been . were fate a better stage manager to justify bimself to Lesley, Lesley sent for him by Uncle Wally. . To her he was still tbe chauffeur, and tbe darky who politely delivered the message announced tbat "young miss would be obliged to Massah Cor don If be would take her out In the car as quick as possible." Aa Lorelaud looked over tbe Ciorla, making her purr pleasantly la prepara tion for the run, be tried to decide defi nitely what to do next Face to face with tbe certainty of separation and ber marriage wltb another man. every bour apent wltb the loved one became a priceless treasure.

When the car wat ready be drove to tbe front door and found Lesley tying oo ber motor veil, a charming picture set In a ruittic frame. Loveland'a spirits rose when be aaw tbat she waa alone. Auntie In tbe limousine waa tbe least obtrusive of chaperons. Still, there waa joy In bav lug tbe girl to himself. "For a wonder I couldn't sleep but Bight" said Lesley, "aud I tbuugot an early spin in tbe car would clear my brala of cobwebs." Loveland said be was sorry to bear Miss Ienuer bad not slept Tacit Wally told me." be added, -tbat you'd Ua TlUng13tetflst night -Not exactly . wrlilng." explained I-esloy. fiiikbiug the chiffon bow un der ber chla wltb dainty elaboration.

But be waa tiecomlng outwardly quite a well trained servant, and only under tbe greatest provocation could be be goaded Into asking Impertinent questions. -Xou're heard nothing from your People yetr asked Lesley after a t minutes' silence while they fiew along a road smooth as If It bad been mads for generations. -Nut yet." replied Val. "But I dare say something will be forwarded from lumnerntowa tbrauer a a day or two. I told you I'd written to the manager there, giving this address, for BIU Would have sent on to Bonnerstown anything tbat came for me to bis care la New rork." "Tee. Too told me." ssid Lesley.

Take care of tbat baby pig, Mr. Gordon: I think I will drive for awhile after all, If you don't mind "Delighted," said Loveland la oiood to rejoice If tbe girl apset the car and killed them both, because It would be so much more agreeable to go out of tbe world wltb ber than to remain In It while ahe became lost to blm as Mrs. Cremer. Sbe began cautiously, but In a few moments put tbe forty horsepower Gloria on fourth speed, throttling her down to a pace within reason. "There! Aren't you proud of your pupil V the girl asked gnyly. "Very proud," answered I .ot eland. "And do you think 1 should be able to get on without much more teaching from real export T "Oh. yes.

And, besides, I can't help thinking this morning tbat you're leading up to say ing something which perhaps you find It a lUtle difficult to say; Yet why should It be difficult for you to tell me If you've beard that. Mr. Cremer, Is coming at ouce and bringing another chauffeur." - " , ' "My telegram didn't say that, but lit made me feel tbat I shan't be able to keep you very long at tbe Hill Farm," said Lesley.

"Ob, don't think I feel like tbat!" ex claimed Lesley eagerly so eagerly tbat In ber excitement she did tbe very thing sbe bad reproached Loveland for doing. Sbe forgot tbat a person con trolling a powerful motorcar la 111 ad- vlseto be In earnest about anything except tbe business In band. Tbey were approaching a aomewbat abrupt turn In tbe road at tbe moment Lesley chose to assure Loveland that she didn't mean to hurt bla feelings. Being genuinely sorry for tbe effect ber words produced, sbe did not real ize until too late that tbe corner would expect ber to alow down before turn ing It Sbe tried to make up for ber mistake by a feat of accurate steering, but tbe task waa beyond ber powers. The big Gloria awung round the curve on two wheels, refused to take tbe new direction and bounded gayly off tbe road, across a ditch and Into a meadow. CHAPTER XXVII. THE OTUER BISK CV TBI MOOW. THE next thing that Loveicnd knew be was sitting in a bog. I which felt quite soft and com fortable so comfortable tbat be at first believed bimself to bo Is bed, waking out of a bad dream. Then with a flash be remembered all tbat bad happened and scrambled up In a cold sweat of fear forTLesley. .

Tbe girl'a position waa easy, giving Loveland tbe bop tbat fio bones were broken, and there waa no stain of blood on tbe wblte face or tbe soft brown balr. But sbe lay very still. There was do flutter of tbe eyelashes, bo faint gasping for breath. Sick with fear that she might be dead, Loveland' memory refused the barrier between them. He was con scions only ef bis love for ber. "Dearest precious one darling!" be called ber. "For God's sake, wake up! Speak to me only speak to me! I lore yoa so!" Instantly sbe-opened ber eye wide, shivering little In bis arms, and look ed up at blm. balf dazedly at first then smiling aa a woman might who bas dreamed ot a distant lover and wakes to find blm near. "Thank God you're not dead!" be stammered. v "And that you're not!" tbe answered faintly. "You you're not much burtr "Not at all, aud If I were It wouldn't matter." Loveland assured ber fervent ly. "If only I hadn't let yo drive or If I badnt talked to you! It' all my fault What aboil I do It you're In Juredr "I I'm a!l right and and rather happy? whispered Lesley. "I don't tun anytuing in matter at au, ex cept ft little shock." "Let m lift you up for minute, so that wa can tnake sure whether you are hurt," said Val.

"Just wait "before de ciding to give me up until we've thor oughly thrashed thing out, beginning at tbe beginning and going right on to the end." "I shan't decide to give you up. Nothing can make me do that now," Loveland said. "It's Cremer who'll have to go to the wall." Lesley laughed. -Like bis motor. Toor, poor csrl Fm sorry for It but It hasn't sacrificed Itself In vain. I was beginning to wonder bow on earth to bring all this about. Tbat wa what kept me awake last night. If I'm to tell the whole truth. It had to come some way, and It bad to come soon. Well, Sidney' motorcar has solved tbe difficulty, and Sidney will be glad, for my happiness la tbe earn to blm a bis own. And now Fve gone so far I may a well confess tbat from the very minute I saw you play Lord Bob In that dingy tittle ball at Ashville 1 hoped oh. but hoped more tbsn any thing that you would ask me to mar ry you! nense, please, don't be shock ed, but I invited you to come here Just for that" "Yet you were engaged to Sidney Cremer," be said, half to himself. "I waa bound to Sidney just a 1 am bow and just aa I have been for the last three year. And I wasn't tired of blm then, not ft bit. and I'm not even at this minute. But I lor you the real you." "Darling!" exclaimed Ixiveland. Yet be marveled at, tor.; Tbl wa a phase of the, girj" charaeter-her true and oolile.character-wblch be waa at a loss to understand. ' "Tqu were very cold to me that night at Ashville," be ventured to say. "I waa trying you. I wasn't quit ure, you ace. which aide of tbe moon I waa looking at and If, after all. It wag only th same old side I didn't want to let myself be daisied by it, a I couldn't help being at first I was In lav' wltb yoa on tbe boat, even when I laughed at your talk of love. I felt more Ilk crying than laughing, thongb. because the tort of love yon gave uie In return for mine wasn't worth my having.", "Heaven, know it," Val admitted humbly. ... "But I'm delisted that Sidney' mo tor Jumped over conventionalities In. stead of my having to take the leap myself.e Instead I Just leaped with tb car, and yoa leaped, too, and every thing 1 going to be heavenly for all the rfsfof our Uvea." . "I don't quite see how If you're not tired of Cremer," saH Loveland. "Don't te JeaMi of 'Sidney any more. I HKeil mikliig you a Mtle Jeal ous of faitn at Hrl- after I raw bow you felt.

Ob, don't speag yet: i must go on a tittle fur ther. You know, I told you I bad a telegram this morning?" "Yes, yes." - , . "Well, you thought It was from Sid ney Cremer. and I didn't contradict Lota of things you've thought lately 1 let you go on thinking without contra dicting. Tbe telegram was from 11. tie Fanny Milton about you." ' "About me?" "She knew from a Journalist who Is a friend of bers tbat you'd come to this part of the country with a theatrical troupe, and they'd found out that tbe actors were playing pieces of Sidney Cremer'a at Ashville. They talked it over together Fanny and this Mr. Eidd. He wanted to know for bis pa per's ake where you'd disappeared to when the company broke up. Laat evening be suggested that she should telegraph to me. Tbey both thought I might have beard about you. So that's why I felt tbat you wouldn't be stop ping on aa my chauffeur very long." "Did Miss Milton- say In tbe telegram that New York bad discovered Its mis take about me?" "No; ahe didn't say that, though It waa a long telegram. I expect ahe thought 1 would have seen the news papers. Well, I haven't But I can put two and two together quite nicely, and I was sure tbat you'd come Into your own again with the great Amerl- "can public, perhaps partly through Fanny MU ton's Mr. Eldd. I'd be will ing to' wager all the profits of Sidney Cremers next play or novel. If I bad them, that you can now go back. If you like, and get without any difficulty tbe heiress you came across tbe water forj : '. ,: "Fm alck of tbe very word heiress," protested Loveland, with complete sin cerity. "That's the new you. And what a very new you It la when one cornea to think of It-only a few week old! But if the only real one. Tbe other wa a (bell, which bas broken." "You broke It" ald Val " 1 cracked It. a little maybe on the boat, but It took a big hammer to smash It and now I've swept all the fragments away. There's Just the real you and the real me In tbe world, with the wonderful light from the other aide ot tbe moon shining on u two and Sidney Cremer." "Oh, Sidney Cremer!" cried Love- laad. "He still stands between us.' "No, be doesn't If you love me you'll have to love Sidney, too, be cause Sidney Cremer aud I are one, and bis mon ey is , mine, be cause I earn it And don't I en joy it too! Have r fcot enjoyed If for three whole years, since all of a sudden from being ft poor girl, dependent on Aunt Barbara, I waked up to find myself a rich one oh, not rich in your meaning ot tbe word, not rich enough to line castle walls with gold and dia "TOW TOO AJtX SIB- WET CHEMIST" monds, but rich enough to do nice lit tle things for an old Kentucky farm bouse and perhaps even to help re store ancient British strongholds If th lord ot them and of my heart will give me so much happiness." "You-you are Sidney Cremerr Loveland could only stammer tb words stupidly, "Yes. Are you so surprised that Fm clever enough to make a success with my brain and my pen? I often won dered when you'd - begin to suspect but you never did. And I wa won dering, too,. whether Sidney Cremer would have to, propose to you In tb end. It' been great fun keeping my secret from the world, never letting any one know tbe real truth except auntie and tbe Ashville cousins, though Fanny Milton and lota of other ac quaintances thought I was ft friend of Sidney Cremer perhaps even ft poor relation of hi. But tbe most fun of ail ha been keeping tbe secret from you till tbe time waa ripe to tell. Do you remember saying tb other day, 'Sidney Cremer la everything?" I told you rd remind you ot tbat om time and ask if you could aay It again. Caa you now?"

Powell, of tbo Seaboard from here to Henderson, yesterday afternoon aa the genial captain came in with hla train, h Nope,"' not a thing. ? This haa been the quietest. Christmas I have ever seen. , Have handled large crowds, which have been very orderly and qufet. . But I can toll you of the most remarkable thing I ever beard. of never knew any Incident like It. It looks like retribution of the swiftest Kind. A few days ago-a negro down at Norlina, on tbe main line, ycu know, stole a conductor' watch; and $65 of the conductor's clean cash,' also, and then robbed a fireman ot hla watch. I did not learn the ne gro's name or the circumstances of the thefts. But this same negro undertook to beat his way on a freight train that passed Norlina a short time after he bad done "the. stealing. The- freight had bardiy gotten ten milea from Norlina before there was ft wreck and three or four freight cars were badly smashed up. The negro waa under one of them and waa killed. Tbe conductor got hla watch and every cent ot money back, and the fireman got his watch, too. I never head of such a thing before. .Did you?" We told him that we had not, and thanked him for giving us a good item when he thought that he did not have a thing to tell. There la a very practical lesson in this incident to men who steal and undertake to beat their way on- railroad trains. A decided warning. GYPSY FACTION START RIOT MANY INJURED IX FIGHT THAT ENSUED.

Mitchell wa given a preliminary hearing yesterday afternoon on a charge ot criminal aasault and held for trial In the superior court with out baiL Three othera were bound over, charged with assault with in tent . From the hearing It seems tbat there were two bands and each claims tbat he haa committed no crime and doe not seem to realize the enormity of the offense which "ie ia charged with. - The gypsies are enraged, and each band ia threatening the other. In the meantime the citizena of that sec tion of the county are demanding -that these undesirable citizena be made to move on. Sheriff Lowry - haa tbe aituation well in hand and will keep the peace.
