Race to beat opposl tlon company's stage a success, but Stella falls to hear of Gideon. CHAPTER XXII. A Heart for a Life. In tlie depressing loneliness of a strange hotel Stella's feara returned, multiplied by the hours t.ley hud rested. Impatiently she paced the small room. She had no watch to count the minutes. Hut that the sun still shone on the mountain above her, she would have declared It already night. Where was Uncle Hilly? Why hadn't he come to take her to dinner? Innocent Stella! She knew nothing of Mrs. Grundy's code; suspected no whit of the reason for Uncle Billy's aloofness. In Colfax, under Sally B.'s powerful wlntr, where Uncle Hilly was known and approved, no one would have dared a breath against her. liut U was very different In this feverish city. Good women wore few. Honest men. toiling for loved ones away. Jostled the blackleg, the gambler, the mun of many ullases; and pettlcoated vice preyed upon Its authors, and surely beset cleau hearts as well. A beautiful friendless girl must indeed be hedged by angels If sho were to run safe!) the gantlet of this "wickedest city iu the world." SJio left her room and wandered abqut in search of the parlor; came upon it at lastsmall, stuffy and possessed by several overdressed, be diamonded women, who stared at her br&zenjy aud openly commented ua her As from a pestilence, she tied to tow own corridor again, hesitating be- foro hor door, But vnnaitlshefl by I thought of tlio desolation within, bIic dropped tlio key In her pocket and I began walking tho narrow lin.ll. dnrkor, I emptier tlmn hor room, but open at either end to mtmnn npproacii. Hero the lirtlt boy found her, bringing n message from Uncle Hilly to meet him In the parlor, Stella thought of It a little resentful ly ns she hurried on, recnlllng tho In hospitable occupants. But they were gone; und at sight of Uncle Billy's cheery face she forgot they had over been. Ho came to her with outstretched hnnds. "As I told you, honey, Vin cent's O. K. He's" "Here?" she Interrupted Impetu ously. "No; he didn't come through, honey. Hlodgett, the driver, said ho got oft at Carson, Cadwalladeh met him; they seemed to have business tugetheh." "Oh I" The long-drawn exclamation was all of Stella's reply; and he hoped she would auk no questions. "You must shut those sweet peepehs of yo's Bharp ufteh suppeh; get right smart of sleep to-night, fo' you must sturt home early In the muwning." "Gideon where do you suppose ho Is, Uncle Billy?" He had dreaded the words. "Honey, why do you pesteh yo'self ubout Gid eon? If Vincent's doing business with anotheh man, both of them C. P. fel lows, how can Gideon get in any devil try?" Stella was not reassured. "But, Uncle Hilly, Phlneas Cadwallader's no protection; he hates Alfred. And why didn't we see Gideon on the way? He must have come in ahead of us must he here now, and If I could only get word from Alfred!" "Shall I telegraph for you?" She shrunk back. "Oh, no. He wouldn't wish me to send him mes sages over the wires." "111 fix that. He won't know yo're lieah." "That will be good; thank you. I'm such a. trouble to you, Uncle Billy! And my trip has been quite useless," she added wearily. "Not useless. honey. You brought me luck won the race for us." She smiled. "I hope I'll bring you more luck. I'll go home with you to morrow." "That's right, child. Good-bye till mawning. Have sweet dreams." "Good-bye?" she echoed wondering- ly. "Aren't you going to stay here to-night? Take me in to supper." He winced before her steady eyes, and lied heroically. "I have a heap to do befo' I'll be ready for the trip home; and I won't have time to see you again. Eat a good suppeh, child, won't you? Have you money to pay for it?" "Not a two-bit piece, Uncle Billy. You pay for me, won't you? And book me, too? I'll have it for you when we get home." She 'was surprised by his silence and nervousness. He opened his purse quickly, and forced some money upon her, his embarrassment increasing as he looked furtively through each open door while pressing her hand shut over the coin. "Take that," he whis pered."You must pay yo' own bills, and book yo'self, honey. Don't ask me why!" he added as she opened her lips to speak. Instantly he was gone, leaving her to puzzle out the matter for herself. But the need for dissembling her re lations with Uncle Billy, whom she had known longer than any one living save Gideon, did not dawn upon her. Supper alone was less an ordeal than she had expected. On her return to her room she met the hall boy and ordered pen and paper. She had bare ly seated herself to "write when a dis patch interrupted her; It was ad dressed to William Dodge, and was from Alfred at Carson City. "Am de tained here. Will be in Colfax on the thirtieth." In the reaction of relief she wrote a short, ulmost happy letter to Alfred, sending it to post by the hall boy. The next day they faced homeward. No other passenger shared the box seat with Stella; and leisurely, u little shy ly, she told Uncle Billy of her plans for school, aud received his advice, heart felt, if not always wise. At Dutch Flat she stopped to visit an acquaintance, timing her home going for Uncle Billy's next trip, hop ing vainly that Alfred would be with him. It was indeed a home-coming! Days only she had been away; they seemed weeks. Sally B., Viola, Yic Wah, even the dog, greeted her over- powerlngly. Suddenly she realizeu with a heart-wrench her leaving It wotild be, "Hero's a letter for you," Sally B. said, when Stella was at last free. "It came yesterday." She took it, but paled wltii quick fear when she saw the strange hand writing. Sho hastened to her room. Thero was neither date, address, nor signature; but the message was cruel. "Stella Anthony: Alfred Vincent's life is in your hands. Seud to the ad dress below within one week after October 30 your written word that you will marry Gideon Ingram, and Vincent shall go free. Refuse to do this und he shall die. Return this let ter with your answer, or it will not avail." In the postscript were directions for address; but Stella did not read them. She thrust the sinister sheet out of sight in her pocket: yet the words burned in her brain, written there for ever. Motionless, she gazed at the wall In a useless endeavor to think. Darkness fell. Still she stood there, leaning against the wall now, though she had no memory of moving. A step caught her ear. She aturted up, in tent on defending herself agalbut in terruption. The Chinese boy's harsh voice came through the door ttlljug her that Alvln waited in the parlor to aay good-bye. She went into the parlor. - Alvin, a man in years, yet ever the buoyant Soy, sprang forward with outstretched hands to greet her. "Oh, Miss Stella, the SO miles are done! Done 'pon honor, too. The commissioners have examined and ac cepted the work. They suy it's O. K. und the Kovemmenfn bound to re celve It. And the blamed strike that & -!U Ve r j0tte' hiding, broke out yesterday won't hludur 4iuMevi,r va any man's O. P a mite: they've got more Bio coaling oa the uly. I'd going to uiy jai$Jtf Iffgrwa.

His exuberance was a tonic. Stella's numb heart began to boat a llttlo color to her lips, hope to her soul. Yot sho did not speak, though she smiled. "What Is it. Miss Stella?" Alvln re pented. "You look as If you'd tflcd and couio buck, though not till or you. There's uwhil things In youi' face!" "And in my lieart, too, Alvln. Oh, Alvln, I" Sho grow cold again, ntid was silent. Tactful Alvin snld nothing, but push ing a clmlr behind hor pressed her gently into It. He did not release hor hand, hut stroked it softly, waiting for her to speak. Suddenly sho started up. This was the thirtieth, nnil it week, the letter hud stildl And sho did not know now far the answer wns to go. Proclaim time had already been wasted, It was nges since' she read those awful wordsi She must do something, tell Homo one, get help. Alvln! Ho was the one. She put the letter Iu his hand, "Head It, qiilck!" she com manded. He compiled, starting at the first words, then reading on quietly, through the postscript directions, and ending with a careful scrutiny of the en velope. Stella watched him anxiously, wondering, even in her preoccupation, at tho mtttutlty and wisdom that came Into his face at emergency's call. "Oh, Alvin, theie must he some way be side beside obeying. How can I do that? Yet how can I bo Alfred's mur murderer?" She shuddered at the word. "Perhaps this is only a threat from some enemy of Gideon's to get htm into trouble." "Oil, no," Stella answered, remem bering the last look she had seen in Gideon's face. "I'm sure it I'm sure Gideon knows of it." "Oh, pshaw, Miss Stella! GId Ing ram wouldn't do such a scurvy trick." "Alvln, you don't know. He has tried to make me marry him. He's crazy with jealousy. I know this letter is his work, that he means it!'1 Alvin reliected again. Suddenly his face was illuminated.' "There's a way, and it's sure marry me!" "What? Alvin!" She half rose, angry that he could jest at such a moment. But, no, his face was seri ous. Yet It was too absurd, impos sible! "Not really, of course, but so far as any one else knows. Elope with me to night!" Her eyes were big with astonish ment. Gradually his meaning dawned upon her, and the power to think. The Message Was Cruel. His daring idea was suggestive of an other. "No, Alvin, not even to save Alfred Vincent could 1 do that. Sui cide is cowaidly, yet I'd rather kill myself than seem to be so fickle, to betray dear little Viola." "Miss Stella, don't speak of suicide! And Viola'd know how it was, of course. But there's other ways, if you won't accept my offer." He smiled boyishly in spite of the tragic moment. "Yes, thete's another way; I shall disappear, just drop out of sight. Aud you'll help me, won't you? This very night?" "Yes, Indeed. This night is the only time I could do it, too. I'm to work nights after this." "Can you get me away secretly, Al vln? Have you any plan?" "Yes, I can fix It. I know a man he's a friend of mine, and as close mouthed ns a dumb one. I'll get Ills team and start you on your way to Sacrum' Ho, or to tho Bay, as you think best. I'd say San Francisco; it's bigger, you can hide safer thero." "Yes, that will be better, But you, Alvin" "Oh, don't worry about me. I'll bo back hero before daylight, and take the train to-morrow. Every one knows I'm to go to Sacramento." Stella was silent. "Got any money?" "Not much. My trip to Virginia took most of it." "Well, don't fidget over that. I've a couple of hundred I can lend you as well as not; and you can take your time to pay. No matter if It's never, And maybe Sally B. can think up b better trlek lor you." "O, Alvln, you're so good! Thank " She could not trust ber voice, yet after u struggle went on. "I'm sure, Alvin, we've thought or the only way. Hut we win tell What time must we Bturt?" ".N'ot later thnu midnight. You bet ter get everything llxed berore ten, and let the bouse got plumb dark an hour or so befef're.'. "Very wH I'll have my letter writ ten in a half-hour. Will you come for it. and mail it at puce?" lie nodded. "And Alvln, will you stay here while I talk it till over with Sally IJ.V I want no misunderstanding of -vhat we are to do." Alvlu assented and sho left him. There was no hesitation now. A strange cultnriess pervaded her. With out hesitancy" or revising she wioje tlie .wors. that were to separate her frqnvher- pagt, that were to bind hoi1 life, or oven wu,!8lie wrote, 'will I marry -- nnmnwnwinm nnil nil who know mo. i will tilde so scctuoly Hint It will bo useless for any ono to Bcek mo. And I will nover meet Alfred Vin cent, communicate with him, or re celvo communication from him until Gideon Ingrain himself gives permis sion," Sho slgnod tho letter, directed nnd sealed tho envelope and went down stairs. "Yon poro llttlo critter!" Sally B. cried, Hying to her with open arms us sho entered. "Al's told mo tho hull blamed layout! Blast that durned Injun!" She felt Stella tremble in her nrniH. "Don't he tifeard, honey t You've got friends. Me'n 1111111 Btnnd by yo. You've struck tho only thing to do, I reckon." Stella stood erect and was silent. The others watched her Without speak lug, waiting on her mood. At lust she faced them. "This step changes till my life, Please toll Uncle Hilly the tho best thing you can think of, Mrs. Sally," Stella said, the words coming slowly, us If she wore thinking out hor plan as she wont, "From this time I shall bo Esther Anthony. Only you, Mrs. Sally, shall know where I am, or what I'm doing. Uncle Billy and Alvln you're so good, Alvln they can know of me through you. Will you keep my Secret, Sally Bernard, sacredly?" "It's thunder-In' noble, this thing that yo're goln' to do, Stella; an' I'll promise, an' keep my mouth shet O, K. if you likewise promise to always let mo know where yo're a-hanglng out. Do you?" "Yes," Stella said, and walked to the window, speechless. No sound es caped her; but Sally D. saw her shoul ders lift and tremble, nnd llew to her, comforting her with a lovo that Stella knew would never fall. When Alvln came at midnight the hotel was dark and silent. Not a glimmer of light came fiom behind the curtains where Sally B. watched with wot eyes while Stella drove away, her head turned to ward that window as long as sho could see It. The nevt morning Sally B. joined her excited conjectures with the most eager of the questioning gossips. And none who listened to her lurid remarks" upon Stella's illght dreamed that' her aching lieart was following the soli tary, fleeing girl.
