Oh, toll mo, you kind woman, who left this?" "That?" said the laudlady. "Why that belonged to one of the poor men who went out with Dr. Jameson. He had just come, and I didn't hear his name. My, but—but—sure, the boy here is like him." "With Dr. Jameson?" the lady whis pered, very white. "We beard on the train that the raiders were killed and captured. Was be there—at Krugers dorp?" Nobody was heard to speak. The man at the door slipped quietly In and examined the papers on the floor unob served. For a. moment the lady trem bled, then, taking her little bewildered son's hand, sba said steadily: "Mr. Brown, will you order a car riage and horsus? I will go there at once." "My lady, where?" "To the battlefield." "It Is late in the day, my lady, and many miles." Site bit her lips. "Please order the horse at once," she said. "No doubt we can find fresh ones somewhere if these fail us on the road." He looked at her and opened his Hps to protest, but looked at her again and obeyed. The good woman of the house pitied, but had sufficient instinctive tact not to press the feverishly agi tated wife to remain. The landlord bustled about and himself saw to the guides and horses. In the meantime the lone traveler took one glasB of beer and a sandwich at the bar and, grabbing his valise, made haste to catch a southbound train for Ivimberley after consulting for a moment the timetables which explained how one should quickest reach Pretoria in the Transvaal. "Wrapped In cloaks, the lawyer's clerk and the tired child slept fitfully through the night as four horses rattled them over the wide and lonely veldt. But the wife was Bleepless, staring with anxious eyes into the continual shad ows. Shapeless shadows to the driver and guide, shadows of no meaning, they were animate for her—forms and faces of long ago leaping to fantastic life, forms and faces even more fan tastic, of a future doubtful and dread ed. Once or twice her fatigue over came her anxiety, and she slept a lit tle. The last time she woke up with a cry for help. In her dream she had seen a tall ladder resting in unseen depths of blackness, yet whose top was In sunlight. Her husband was falling, falling to the ladder's foot, to dreadful darkness, but she and an old man were looking down at him from above. "Oh, dear God!" she sobbed, shudder ing. "Wherever he is, whatever he has done, blame not him, but me! I pushed him down! My God, I pushed him down!" His friend Wyvil and be had ridden side by side, disarmed after the sur render. Triumphant Boers, from whose lips at Intervals rose hoarse psalms of praise, rode on either side and in front and rear. Some of the ruder Trans vaallans, the young and hot blooded, were roused to a high pitch of excite ment by their victory and taunted their prisouers, threatening them with retrl butlou as outlawed raiders. The un lucky uitlanders rode gloomily on, un answerlug, in a manner stunned to speechlessness by so overwhelming, so unexpected, a catastrophe. That spirit ed dash, that daring gallop to the Rand, that revival of medlteval chivalry which their hot, naught recking brains had dreamed would be greeted by an em pire's cheer, had come to this humili ating defeat half way and an ignomin ious procession to prison, perhaps to the gallows. Two or three proud hearts, ignoraut of their captors' real mind and abhorrent of such an end, welcoming any fate but that, made hopeless darts for the open veldt in a useless effort to escape. These were shot down—poor, unlucky exiles from home, who had vainly sought retrieval of name and fortune on the rim of the death pit. Young Wyvil stuck fast to the side of the man whom first he had met at the canteen on the border, the man of di vers names, who had introduced him self as Lawrence, but had elected to Join the raiders under another appella tion. The wallaber, even In that short space, had made friends, and if he were reticent of his past that was no uncom mon thing In ranks wherein few men Btood save as a last resource. Wyvil, himself with a past, and Corporal Donne, now cold upon the veldt, had attached themselves to one to whom their old school and varsity traditions were fraternally familiar. And now, without the light hearted outcast's sup port, Lawrence could not have finished the dismal Journey to Pretoria. Strips from a torn slilrt bandaged his face where a Boer bullet had plowed his cheek and cut away a portion of his chin. lie had lost blood, but when still miles away from their destination he swayed In his saddle more than the wound seemed to warrant. Wyvil press ed close to him und thrust his arm un der the other's. "Old man," said lie, "Is it bleeding fresh?" Lawrence steadied himself resolute ly and shook his head, but Wyvil, him self uuscratchcd, looked anxious. "Look here," he said, "that little Hol lander medicine man doesn't seem half bad, you know, but he was In a hurry when he patched you up. I think we'd better get this Boer fellow to let us drop to the rear and have the doc make another examination.

I want you to see her and tell her that 1 died honorably and—and—my God, how It hurts!" Walt until wo are—wherever they are taking us. What makes you talk of dyiug from a cut iu the cheek? Hel lo! Look out! Waeht!" Lawrence had turned gray, had sway ed, had fallen into Wyvil's arms as the latter leaped dowu to catch him. The guard rode up, ami the procession mov ed on. passing them. The doctor gal loped to the prisoner and made a quick examination. The bandaged wound was doing well. The trouble was not there. The doctor opened the coat and shirt and found a bleeding wound in the side. "Ye gods!" cried Wyvil. "Ho never inentioued this! No wonder he looked so ghastly. Why, he must have suf fered like blazes all those miles!" "Verdamter!" the disgusted doctor exclaimed. "He must be in a hurry to die! ills clothes are soaked in blood. The man was patched up, placed in a Jolting wagon and so gained the prison at Pretoria half dead. lie fainted as he was carried In, and when he came to himself he suw that he was in a room crowded with his comrades, some wounded, some utterly miserable, some recklessly indifferent. He lay In a cor ner, and next day the faithful WyvU was by his side with water. "Why did you uot tell of that bullet wound?" his friend asked reproachful ly. "No wonder you nearly fell from your saddle. It's a wonder you did not die In It." "It's a pity," said Lawrence. Wyvil looked at him vexedly. "Look here, Lawrence," he said. "This Is consummate bosh, you know. I have no right to Inquire Into your private af fairs. Most of the men in our ranks have done something at home, and per- "Lady NorcF1 he cried in astonishment. haps you have. I have. But—oh, hang it, nothing is bad enough to make a fel low commit suicide, and that's what you seem to be up to!" It isn't suicide It was an honest bul let" Poppy talk! Sophistry! You're in a bad way, but it might have been mend ed. Now, forget all about that thing at home, whatever it was. Be a man get well have another try for the stakes." I was innocent of any wrongdoing at home. It was out here I went to the devil. Put your hand In my breast. Do you feel a rubber packet. Cut the string round my neck. Now open it." Wyvil opened the thin package and produced the photograph of a woman and a little child. Your wife?" said he. "She is lovely. Now, look here, old man. You're going back to her." I can't," said Lawrence hopelessly, and his voice was weak. "Let me look. She was pretty. I'd like to see the boy once too. You would not think it, Wy vil, but my father and she between them pushed me off the ladder—sent me to the devil in the devil's land. Give me some water. I feel—I love her yet, Wyvil." "Don't try to talk.1 "You will know her. Look on the back and see if her name is not there. Then you will know my real name. But dou't let anybody else." "It Is too dark here. Let me take It to the light at the door." He slipped away, and when ho came back a stranger in citizen dress who had been silently moving among the prisoners was standing over Lawrence, who, raised on his elbow, was looking up at him desperately and defiantly. "You've got me at last," said Law reuce. "I think so, and I suppose I have a claim ou you prior to that of Paul Kruger," the stranger coolly replied. "You've changed names pretty often of late." "What's up?" cried Wyvil, coming back. "Excuse me, sir, but my friend Is badly wounded. Even the exertion of talking"— "I think in that case," the stranger said calmly, "I can get an order to have him removed to the hospital on the hill." "You know him then? Thank you." "No," cried the wounded raider, with violence. "You would have mo get well, you?" "How? What's the matter?" Wyvil asked. "The fact Is that I have a warrant here for the arrest of your friend, Rob ert Lawrence, for a murder in Johan nesburg two weeks ago." Wyvil recoiled from the hand Law reuce held out to him uppeallugly. "It was in fair fight," he whispered iu despair. "You will have some difficulty to prove that," the detective remarked. "I swear it," said Lawrence, and then as Wyvil held aloof, pule and agitated, the sick man with a suddeu wrench tore the bandages from his side, ami the wound, rudely opened, bled profuse ly. In au instant Wyvil forgot what he had Just heard und leaped to render aid, but the detective was before him. "You go and send for the prison doc tor," said lie, and Wyvil ran. Going to the door, he was Just in time to meet a lady and boy who were beiug ushered lo. The lady's face was fresh in his memory, older, but the same—the face of the photograph. "Lady Nore!" he cried lu astonish ment as the name ou the picture flash Ad to mind. The lady clasped her hands excitedly and swiftly stepped to him. 3fe A* "l'ou know me?" she said. "But we have not met? Then you—you kuow my husbaud? Oh, take me to him. He Is here, Isn't he? We have been at Krugersdorp and he is uot among the poor killed ones. He must be a pris oner. Take me at once to him, please." In his bewilderment Wyvil was al ready approaching the corner, where the dexterous detective had already re bandaged the wound. Ills sight, accus tomed to the darkness of the prison, made clear to him what the wife could not see—Lawrence, his face all swath ed In cloths, sitting up. staring wiili a look of ghastly horror In his eyes. Wy vil stopped, lie and Lady Nore and the boy were within a yard or two of the detective and his prey. There Is some mistake," said WyvU to the wife, but with his look question ing!}* on Iawrenee. Lawrence's face said clearly: "Do not betray me!1 "I knew you from your photograph, my lady," Wyvil stammered. The detective drew buck to the wall. "My photograph! In Africa? Then only Sir Robert could have that. He must have shown It to you. Oh, do plcaBe take me to him!" Wyvil was wet with perspiration. He looked Imploringly at the eyes between ihe bloody cloths. Aud again these an swered: "No do not betray me!" Lady Nore mistook Wyvil's hesita tion. I understand," she said. "You know my husband, and—and he may have told you about—about what occurred long ago. He may not wish to meet me, and he is right. But that is forgot ten. He was innocent. It was us—me —who were to blame. I want to see him. Oh, tt&e me to him at once to ask his pardon!" The wounded man dropped back with a groan. Too late, too late!" he moaned in an extremity of agony. "What was that? Who said that?" cried the wife in fear. The detective stepped forward and bowed. I had the honor to meet you at Vry burg, my lady," he said, speaking to her, but keeping his gaze on his prison er's face, "and I also was looking for a—friend—who was lu the battle. This is he, but he Is badly wounded and is perhaps a little off his head." The raider's hand stole out unseen and touched the detective's leg. "Thauk you!" the raider's lips murmured. "I thought—I am rather worn out—1 knew the voice," said the wife, in tears. "Oh, sir," she cried again to Wyvil, "have pity and take me to my hus band!" Poor Wyvil was In distress. He knew not what to do. Again the de tective felt his trouser touched. He bent down and caught the agonized whisper of the prisoner, "Tell her any thing to send her away she must not know." The detective turned with perfect equanimity to the lady. "Pardon me, my lady," said he, "but I heard you mention Sir Robert Just now—Sir Robert Nore?" "Yes, yes! Do you know him? He is here, is he not?" The detective shook his head. "You have been misinformed," said he quietly. "Sir Robert Is—dead." She threw up her hands, and her lips opened, but no cry came. The boy clung to her, weeping. "I knew him very well," the detective went on relentlessly. "He went under the name of Noble—Thomas Noble. He was killed fighting bravely in the last Kaffir outbreak In the north of the Transvaal. You can find his name in the list of killed here In Pretoria. He had no friends here, but I think his grave is marked. There can be no mis take, I think. This was he." He proceeded to faithfully describe the prisoner at his feet "I am afraid, my dear lady," said he, that you have been misled by some resemblance. He cannot be here. She had the Btrength left to look over all the prisoners, but found no Sir Rob ert. So, at last believing the kindly lie, khe was carried away, swooning. "Thank you," said the prisoner again to the undisturbed detective. "Be kind once more. Do not seud me to the lios pltal. Let it—end—here." "I must do my duty," said the de tective. Over the grave of an utterly uu known exile on the sunbrowned veldt stands a shaft to the memory of Sir Robert Nore In a disgraced grave lie the forgotten remains of the outcast of divers names.
