tact not to press the feverishly agi

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.

the wife was Bleepless, staring with
anxious eyes into the continual shad

tastic, of a future doubtful and dread

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

space, had made friends, and if he were
reticent of his past that was no uncom

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

cheek and cut away a portion of his

Lawrence steadied himself resolute
ly and shook his head, but Wyvil, him
self uuscratchcd, looked anxious.
"Look here," he said, "that little Hol

when he patched you up. I think we'd

latter leaped dowu to catch him. The
guard rode up, ami the procession mov

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

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

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

"You will know her. Look on the back

"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
"I think so, and I suppose I have a
claim ou you prior to that of Paul
Kruger," the stranger coolly replied.

"How? What's the matter?" Wyvil
"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
"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
"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.

"I knew you from your photograph,

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

Lady Nore mistook Wyvil's hesita

long ago. He may not wish to meet
me, and he is right. But that is forgot

—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
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
I had the honor to meet you at Vry

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

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

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
