The elide of the balls had ceased, the clock had struck, ,fjstin, ana the wind was crying In the trees. .. . . "She won't go,' Lady Bazelhurst was saying to herself as she sat, nar row eyed and hateful, In her -window iaoMng out Into the night. "Life Is too eaty here." The light from the porch lanterns cast a feeble glow out beyond the porte cochere and down the cLrfTe. As she stared across the circle the 'figure of a woman suddenly cut a diametric line through it and lost it self in the wall of blackness that form ed the circumference. Lady Evelyn started and stared unbelievingly into the darkness, striving to penetrate it Kith her gaze. It was she Penelope," nbtA cried, "coming to her feet "She's really gone she meant it." , For many minutes she peered out Into.' the night, expecting to see the shadow returning. A touch of anxious hope possessing her, she left the win dow -and hurried down the corridor to PenftlnnA'a rnnm What eho . fnnrwl there was most convincing. It was not a trick, of the lanterns..

The mournful yelp of a distant Cog floated across the black valley The watcher shuddered as she recalled stories -of panthers that had infested the great hills. A small feeling of shame- and regret began to develop with annoying Insistence." ''. An hour dragged itself by before she arose petulantly, half terrified, half annoyed In spite of herself. Her hus band still was sitting In the big chair, his face in his hands. . His small, dc Jected figure appealed to her pity for tie first time In the two years of their association. . She realized what, her tare per had compelled her to say to him and to his sister. She saw the in sults that at least one of them had come to resent. ' " . -. Thope that foolish girl will come tack," she found herself saying, with a . troubled ' look from- the window.' "Where can the. poor thing go? What will become of her? What will every one say when this becomes known?" she cried, with fresh selfishness. "I I should not have let her go like this.- " . . Even as .sh, repfqacCTp.? ,a light brote inVtipori Jier 4derstandihg; a thought whirled into her brain, and a moment later a shrill, angry, hysterical laugh came frpm her lips. .

A glance at the dark Bess outside brought back the grow ing shudders. "What what d'ye mean?" demand ed he, bracing up with a splendid ef fort." " ' ' ' "She's left the house that's all. We quarreled. .1 don't know where she's gone. Yes, I do know. She's gone to Shaw's for the night She's with him. T saw her going," she cried,-striving between fear and anger. ' "You've you've turned her out?" gasped! Lord Bazelhurst numbly. "In the- night?. Good Lord! . Why why . did you let her go?" He turned and rushed toward the door, tears spring ing to his eyes. He was sobering now and the tears were wrenched from his tart pride. "How long ago?" . "An hour or more. She went of her own accord. You'll find her at Shaw's," said her ladyship harshly. She hated to admit that she was to blame. But as her husband left the room,: bang ing the door after him, she caught her breath several times In a futile effort to stay the sobs and then broke down and cried, a very much abused young woman.N She hated everybody and ev erything..' CHAPTER VI. In Which' Dan Cupid Trespasses. Y""ADY BAZELHURST was right. I I Penelope was making her way f A through the blackest of nights wwara me nome or Kanaoipn Shaw. ; In deciding upon this step, aft er long deliberation, she had said to herself; "Randolph Shaw is the only real man I've seen since coming to the mountains. - I can trust him to help me tonight" It was fully three miles to Shaw's place, most of the way over the nar row valley road. She knew she would encounter but . few tortuous places. The last-half mile, however was steep, rugged and unfamiliar ta-iwr... She had ventured no nearer to his hoMe than Renwood's deserted - cottage, lying above and to the south of the road, al most at the. base of the long hill on whose side Shaw had built, his big borne." To climb that hill was no easy task in daylight; at midnight, with the stars obscured by cloads and treetops, there was something perilously uncer tain. in the DrosnecLr . Qsl;r "the Knowledge" mat "jpatience and"" courage eventually woula" bring her to the end made the journey pos sible. Time would lead her to the haven; care would make the road a friend; a stout heart was her best ally. Strength of limb and strength of pur pose she had, in use and in reserve. No power could have made her turn back willingly. Her anxious , eyes were set ahead in the blackness. Hei runaway feet were eager in obedience to her will. . . - 1 "Why couldn't I have put it oft until I morning?" she was saying to herself as she passed down the graveled drive and advanced to meet the wall of trees that frowned blackly in her face. "What will he think? What will he say? Oh, he'll think I'm such a silly, romantic fool! No, he won't. He'll understand. . He'll help me on to Plattsburg tomorrow. But will he think I've done this for effect? Won't, he think I'm, actually throwing my self at his head? No, I can't turn back.. I'd rather die than go back to that house. It won't matter what he thinks. Ill be away from all of it to morrow. I'll be out of his life, and I won't care what he thinks. England! Goodness! What's that?" She, had turned a bend in' the -drive, and just ahead there was a light. A sigh of re lief followed the question. It came from the lantern which hung to a stake in the road where the new stone gate posts were being built by work men from town.' Bazelhurst Villa was a quarter of a mile, through the park, behind her; the forest was ahead. At the gate she stopped between the half finished stone posts and looked ahead with the first shiver of dismay. Her limbs seemed ready to collapse. The flush of anger and excitement left "her face. A white, desolate look came in Its stead. --Her eyes grew wide, and she blinked her lashes with an awed uncertainty that-boded ill for the sta bility of her adventure. An' owl hoot ed in mournful cadence close by, and she felt her hair was going straight on end. The tense fingers of one hand gripped, the handle of the traveling bag, while the other went spasmod ically to her heart. "Oh!" she gasped, moving over vquick 8y to the stake on which the lantern hung. The wind was rushing through vthe treetops with increased fervor, the air was cool and wet with the signs of rain, a swirl of. dust flew up into her Nface, the swish of leaves sounded like "the splashing of water in the air. Holding her heart for minutes, she at last regained some of the lost com posure. A hysterical laugh fell from her lips. "What a goose! It was an owl, and I've heard hundreds of them up here. Still, they do sound different outside of one's own room. It's going to tain. What wretched luck! 'Dear me, I can't stand here all night! How black it is ahead there! O-o-o-h! Really, now, it does seem a.bit. terrifying. If I only had a lantern it wouldn't be so" Her gaze fell upon the laborers' lan tern that clattered aimlessly, uselessly, against the sake. An instant later she had jerked it from its -fastenings with a cry of joy. "I'll send It back when they4 go for my trunks. What "luck!" Without a second's hesitation she started off briskly, into the woodland road, striding along with the splendid swing, of the healthy Englishwoman who has not been trained to dawdle. Her walking skirt gave free play to her limbs. She was far past the well known "line in the road" before she paused to take a full breath and to re capitulate. Her heart beat faster, and the sudden glow in her cheek was not from .the exercise. Somehow, out there alone in the world, the most amazing feeling of tenderness sped on ahead to - Randoloph 'Shaw. She tried to put it from her, but it grew' ad. grew. Then she .blushed deep within, herself, and her eyes grew sweet with -the memory of those stolen, reprehensible hours along the frontier. ,, jSometbing-within her breast cried out for, those shining, gone by moments, something seemed to close down on her throat, something She Started Off Briskly Into the Wood land Road.- flooded her eyes with a softness that rolled up from her entire being. Their line! Their insurmountable , barriet! An absurd yet ineffable longing to fall down and kiss that line came over her with compelling force- ' ' ' Her head grew light with the thought of those moments when their horses stood with muzzles together as If klss- Ing by proxy the flush grew deeper, though her blood went cold and she trembled. A pitiful confusion seized her, an Inexplicable timidity crept Into her heart, replacing the , bold assurance that had been "recklessly carrying her on to ..him. It was as though some one had whispered the truth into her ear and she was beginning to believe. From that moment her courage be gan to fall. The glow from her lan tern was a menace instead of a help. A sweet timorousness enveloped her and something tingfed-she knew not what Spattering raindrops whizzed ia her face, ominous forerunners from the ky sky. The wind was whistling with "shrill glee in the treetops and the treetops tried to flee before it A mile and a half lay between her and the big cottage on the hillside the most arduous part of the journey by far. She walked and ran as though pursued, scudding over the road with a swiftness that would have amazed another, but which seemed the essence of slowness to her. Thoughts of rob bers, tramps and wild beasts assailed, her with intermittent terrors, but all served to diminish the feeling of shy ness that had been interfering with her determination. Past Renwood's cottage she sped, shuddering as she recognized the Btone steps and path that ran up the hillside to the haunted house. Ghosts, witches and hobgoblins fell into the procession of pursuers, cheered on by the shriek ing wind that grew more noisome as her feet carried her higher up the mountain. Now she was on new ground. She had never before explor ed so far as this. The hill was steep and the road, had black abysses out beyond its eedgs. She was breathless, bal dead from fatigue and terror, when at last her feet stumbled up the broad steps lead ing to his porch. Trembling, she sank into the rustic bench that stood against the wall. The lantern clattered to her feet, and the bag with her, jewels, her letter of credit and her curling irons slid to the floor behind the bench. Here was his home! What cared she for the storm? , ' Even as she lay there gasping for breath, her eyes on the shadowy moon that was breaking its way through the clouds, three men raced from 'the sta bles at Bazelhurst Villa, bent on find ing the niad young person who had fled the place. Scarcely knowing what di rection he took. Lord Bazelhurst led the way, followed by the duke and the count, all of them supplied with car riage lamps, which at any other time would have been sickening in their obtrusiveness. Except for Lady Eve lyn the rest of the house slept the sleep of ease. ' ' ' ; " Gradually Penejope recovered from the effects of the "mad race up the hill. The sputtering flame in the. lantern called lier into action. Clutching it from the floor of the porch,' she softly began a tour of inspection., first look ing at her watch to find that 'it was thl unholy hour" of 2. Had some vone yelled "Boo!" she would have swoon ed, so tense was every nerve. .Now that she was here, what was she to do? Her heart came to her mouth, her hand shook; but not with fear; a nerv ous smile tried to wreak disaster, to the concern In her eyes. The house was dark and still. No one was stirring. The porch was lit tered with rugs and cushions, while on a small table near the end stood a decanter, a siphon and two glasses. Two? He had said he was alone ex cept for the housekeeper, and the serv ants. A visitor, then. This was not what she had expected. Her heart sank.. It would be hard ,to face the master of the bouse, but a stranger? Cigarette stubs -met her bewildered, troubled gaze many of them. Deduc tion was easy out there in the lonely night It was easy to see that Shaw and his companion sat up so late that the servants had gone to bed. Distractedly she looked about for means of 'shelter on the porch until daylight could abet her. in the flight to ;the village " beyond- The ' storm was sure vto come at no far distant time. She knew and feared the violence of the mountain rains. "By all that's holy," came in a man's voice, low toned and uncertain, "it isn't a dream, after all!". She turned like a flash, with a star tied exclamation and an instinctive movement' as If to shield herself from unbidden gaze. , Her lips parted, . and her heart pounded like a hammer, Standing in the doorway was Randolph Shaw, his figure looming, up. like.- a monstrous,' wavering genie in th un certain light from the shaking lantern His right hand was to his brow, and his eyes were wide with incredulous joy. She noticed that the left sleeve of his dinner jacket hung limp and that the arm was in a white sling beneath. "Is it really you?" he cried, his hand going instinctively to his watch pocket as if doubting that it was night instead of morning. v "I've I've run away front them!" she stammered. "It's 2 o'clock. Don't look. Oh, I'm so sorry now! Why did I" , "You. ran away?" he exclaimed, com Ing toward her. "Oh, it can't be a dream ! You are there, - aren't you ?" She was a pitiable object as she stood there, powerless to retreat, shaking like a leaf. He took her by the shoul der. "Yes, it is you. Good Lord, what does it mean? . What has , happened? How did you. come here?. Are you alone?" "Utterly, miserably alone! Oh, Mr. Shaw!" she cried despairingly. "You will understand, won't you?" "Never! Never as long as I live. It is beyond comprehension. The won derful part of it all. is that I was sit ting there dreaming of you yes, I was. I heard some one but here, investigated and found you you, of aU people in the world. And I was dreaming that I held you in my arms. Yes, I was. I was dreaming it" "Mr. Shaw! You shouldn't" "And T awoke to find you not in my arms, not in Bazelhurst Villa, but here here on my porch." "Like a thief in the night," she mur mured. "What do you think of me?" "Shall I tell you really?" he cried. The light in his eyes drove her back a step, or two, panic in her heart To Be Continued.) . Farmer Want Ada. I Cent a U'ocd.
