CHAPTER t Continued. Ho followed reluctantly, lured by the wish to sec the attractive counten Innce In the full light, but resolving an ho went that lie would make an excuso ;to. leave at once. ; She went so quickly and he so slowly, that she had entered the dining room jby the time George reached the hall. IShc held the door of the room invit ingly open, and spoke again as he stood ;hat in hand, on the threshold of the 'llOUSti. 1 "Won't you take off your coat and !shake the snow off before you come in? iThcn, when this storm has passed, you will be able to start on your wey again quite dry.". .' , "I am deeply obliged to you for your Itindness," said George, who was utterly .bewildered by the situation in which ;he found himself, so that his words came haltingly from his tongue. ,'Seen in the bright light of the lump which hung from the hall veiling, his unconventional hostess vas even- more beautiful than she liad. looked outside in the dark less. She was tall and fair, with :a figure mrSro suggestive of strength than is usual in young women, almost masculine, indeed, in its unpiuched, iliatnral waist and rather square shoul klers. A massive young woman, with ihmg white hands and quick, lithe (movements, and with a certain frank simplicity of manner which suggested that she did, not live the cribbed and narrow life usual with the women of lllie 'middle classes. The very straight forward spontaneity of her welcome to (this stranger was what one would have expected of a' man, rather than of a young woman. But the freshness, the unexpected ijicss of this was only another charm in 'the dazzled eyes of George Llewellyn. lle found his 'heart beating faster, his jEASD CLOSED THE BOOK BEHIND IHjr. tongue faltering, as he looked at her jshyty, and forced himself to make an excuse. It may be noted that his first .vague suspicions had melted suddenly in the glow of her beauty and of her gracious, Broiling manner. I "I thank you, I don't know how (c thank you enough," he stammered, ulready wavering in his intention of going on; "but I really ought not to tukc advantage of your kindness. Tho ,fact is I am traveling with some valu able securities " I A sort of sickness seized George when jlic got as far as this, and made him isuddcnlv stoB. For as soon as he men- jtioncd tho securities he saw a flash of light on his hostess lace. Ashe paused, leho took up his speech for him. ' "If you have anything of much value about you, that is all the more reason why you should not stumble about blindly in tho snow, as you were doing when I first met you. I And she stepped out quickly from tho cining-room into the hall, drew h mi 111 fiido the house by an unexpected move Went of a strong arm, and closed tho front door behind him before he had recovered from ' the amazement into which, the rapidity and decisiveness oi jtho movements had thrown him. ; "Eeally, I must beg you to let me go on now," said he, in a low voice, as he made a strong effort to pull himself together, and to resist the . pressure vfhich he knew she was going to put upon him to stay. "Ana l must beg you to be moro reasonable, and not to reject tho good fortune tho gods send, just because it liappens to bo offered by a stranger." "I am afraid I must seem nngra- fcious " said George quickly, as ho put bis hand upon the haudlc erf the door, liut she, laughing rather nervously, turned the big key in the lock, and pulling it out in quite a leisurely man ner, thrust it into her pocket, and sprang, almost at one bound, back to the dining-room door. "If you say no to a woman, you, Itnow," she said as she once more in cited him, by a gesture, to enter, "she finds some way of circumventing you Bfterall."- CHAPTER II. -MAN'S REVENOE. The young man felt himself torn as f by sharp thorns, with keen feelings, of passionate attraction, of repulsion as keen, and by a sense of imminent danger. He followed the girl into tho dining-room, holding his bag with a firm hand, and looked at her with an expression which caused tho blood to rush to her face, and her eyes to droop suddenly. The table was between them, for she kvas standing by tho fireplace at tho ppposlte.end of tho room, loaning (igtinst the mantelpiece in an attitude which showed off the lines of her fine figure to unstudied advantage against the red glow. Her blush, tho womanly bend of her head at his look, caused a prevulsion of feeling entirely in her fa yor in tho young man. And even as !he gazed at her, bending a little for ward to get a better view of her face jby looking under the hanging oil lamp with its red shade, he saw that her ex pression of modest shame gave place to kne of doubt, of fear. She looked np jfluiokly, and their eyes met ! In a moment he felt satisfied, as an elder man would not have been, that he suspicion's her strange conduthacL aroused were unfounded. II 2 heaved a sigh of relief. Uo felt so much, how ever, that he had to put a constraint upon himself which made his manner abrupt, and his voiefe harsh as he spoke., "I must go now," he said, turning abruptly. "Open the door, please." lie had turned his back to her, to avoid tho strong influence he felt she had upon him. In the silence which followed his words, he heard her rapid and labored breathing. His doubts awoke again. He even glanced sharp ly round, us if in doubt whether she was not approaching hiin witli some1 sinister purpose And he saw that she had indeed como a little nearer, and, that her large gray eyes wcro wide with doubt and fear. "Why do you wish to detain me?" he lsked.'so sharply that she was taken aback, and gave a little forced luugh while she prepared an answer. "Surely that is a singular way of acknowledging hospitality," said eho, without looking at hnn, "to question the motives of it. Out here in the coun try we are not like the people in towns, who look shyly and coldly upon stran gers. On the contrary, we offer them fire when they are cold, and light when they have lost their way. If you're so suspicious, why did you accept my di rection as to the road you were to take?" He paused before answering. It was not easy to tell her the reasons for the' change in his attitude, although he could not but suppose that she knew; them already. He had seen something, of the world, and was not particularly diffident with nny class of women. . But there was something about this girl, an air of innate refinement, the accent of a gentlewowMin, a sugges tion in her look and manner that she. was playing a part for which she was not suited, winch prevented his put-' ting upon her outrageous conduct the construction he unhesitatingly would have done in tho case of another woman. : He was hopelessly puzzled, ne noted that the room, comfortable as it was, was shabby and worn as to furniture; that the girl's dross was severe in its inexpensive simplicity; that the glass and silver which had looked so impos ing from the outside were exceedingly old fashioned. He noted also that the table was laid for two persons. And, finally, he remarked to himself upon the fact that since he entered he had heard no sound indicating the presence in the house of any person besides him self and his mysterious hostess. Just as ho came to this point in his reflections, however, he saw in the lady's eyes a look which showed him that she was listening for some sound outside, rather than waiting for tho answer to her 'question. So he made up his mind rapidly and walked quick ly to the window, which was about three iti.it from the ground. "You can seo nothing from there but the snow falling," said the girl, in a voice which was notwithout a tremor of anxiety. "Wo are shut in here by a wall, as you may have seen, as a pro tection from the gales wo feel hero so terribly." IF VOU FOLLOW ME I LL FIRE. 1 J 'Without, answering Georgo put np his hand to throwback the catch of the. window. ' " ; ' "Oh!" cried she, in a higher key; "you ore not obliged to go out that way. If you will take a glass of wino to make amends for your doubts of my hospitality, I will open tho door for you immediately." - Without waiting for an answer she left the rqorn, and returned in a very few moments with a decanter of wine, whluh she placed upon the table. With out heeding tho fact that he had opened the window, and was evidently on the point of making his escape by that way, sho poured out a glass of wine, and offered it to him with her own hand, coming round tho table and holding It close to him. "You won't refuse, will yon?" George, with one searching look Into her face, took the glass, and put hia tips to tho wine. Then he put tho glass, with a firm hand, down on the table. "You must excuBe me," said be, nhortly. "Thi wine is drugged." ""She was very near to him as he spoke. Tho next moment she had snatched tho bag from his hand and sprung to the door. In the second which followed the seizure she had got such a good start that sho was able tc slam the door in his face as he pursued her. By the time he had opened the door she had reached the extreme end of ; tho long, narrow hall which ran througli the house from tho front to the back, and was pointing a revolve) at him as he darted after her. "If you follow me, I'll fire," slu shrieked. . to be oxci.lw? 1 . . ' " Their ruefulness at an End.

The temperance people have every reason to encourage athletics, for In their way they are doing a surprising work In the abatement of the drink habit, says the Boston Globe. The vari ous ministers and bureaus of "culture" in Germany all report a decided change for the better in the drinking habltB of the people since ajhletlcs have become popularized. An old custom in Germany is that of "morning beer parties." It la going out of fashion In tho cities because It con duces to obesity, and the thousands who are emulous of success at tennis and other pports requiring agllltf are obliged to discard it. The chief point among those indulging in competitive athletics Is to keep down superfluous adipose. With this purpose in view the thous ands who have taken on the athletic "craze" In countries where great quan titles of malt liquors are consumed are learning the value of moderation. Voluntary reform such as this out weighs in importance and In good re sults a hundred drastic schemes to force men to abstain from liquor. It seems clear enough that athletics are becom ing a powerful adjunct In the good cause of real temperance. A Kind Mother. From tho Woonsockot Reporter.
