The Hollow
of Her Hand
"I'll take chances, Sara," lie said,
with an odd buoyancy In his voice that,
for the life of him, he could not ex
plain, even to himself.
"Even admitting that such should
turn out to be the case," said Mr. Car
roll judicially, "I don't believe you'd
go so far as to put your loyal friends

the thought. Don't forget, however,

Sara settled back among the cush
ions with a peremptory wave of her
hand. The loose, flowing sleeve fell
away, revealing her white, exquisitely
modeled arm almost to the shoulder.

"I am tired, wretchedly tired. It has
been a most exhausting day," she said,
with a sudden note of weariness In her
voice. Both men started up apolo
getically. "I will think seriously of
your plan, Mr. Carroll. There Is no
hurry, I'm sure. Please send Miss
Wrandall In to me, will you? Perhaps
you would better tell Hetty to come

him! He Is fairly riotous with song."
Booth leaned over and kissed the
hand she lifted to him. "He is like the
rest of us, Sara, Inordinately happy."
A slight shiver ran through her arm.
He felt It.
"I am so afraid hie exuberance of
spirit may annoy Vivian," said she,
with a rare smile. "She detests vul
garity." The men departed. She lay back In
the chaise-lounge, her eyes fixed on
the hand he had touched with his lips.
Watson tapped twice on the door.
"Mise Wrandall could not wait,
ma'am," he said, opening the door soft
ly. "She will call again tomorrow."
"Thank you, Watson. Will you

Watson hesitated. "The cigarettes,

"Now, you see what I mean, Bran

Hetty in a troubled voice. "I feel that
Sara will not let me go."
"That's pure nonsense, Hetty," he
said. "She wants you to marry me, I
am positive." He may have thought
his tone convincing, but something
caused her to regard him rather fixed
ly, as if she were trying to solve an
elusive puzzle.
He took her by the arm and raised
her to her feet. Holding her quite
close, he looked down into her ques

"I would not grant you the respite,
were I not so sure of the outcome," he
said gently, but there was a thrill of
triumph in the tones. Her eyes grew
very dark and soft and her lips trem
bled with the tide of love that surged
through her body. "Oh, how adorable
you are!" he cried, straining her close
In a sudden ecstasy of passion.
The doorbell rang. They drew apart,
breathing rapidly, their blood leaping
with the contact of opposing passions,
their flesh quivering. With a shy,
sweet glance at him, she turned to
ward the door to await the appearance
of Watson. He could still feel her in
his arms.
A drawling voice came to them from
the vestibule, and a moment later Les
lie Wrandall entered the library, pull

"Hello," he said glibly. "I told that I

He shook hands with both of them,
and then offered his cigarette case to '
Booth, first selecting one for himself.
Hetty assured him that he was not de

view of his readiness to concede the
point without a word from her.
"Nipping wind," he said, taking his
stand before the fireplace. "Where is

"Really, Mr. Wrandall, you are en
couraging your imagination to a point
where words ultimately must fall you,"
Blie ,said very positively. Booth could
hardly repress a chuckle.
"It's not Imagination on my part,"
said Leslie with conviction, falling ut

glance at her lover, as If to inquire
what stand she should take In thlstdls
Iresslng situation.
"If It Is entailed he can't sell it,"
said Booth quietly.
"That's true," said Leslie, some
what dubiously. Then, with a mag
nanimity that covered a multiude of
doubts he added: "Of course, I am
only interested in Beeing that you are
properly protected, Miss Castleton.
I've no doubt you hold an interest in
the estates."
"I can't very well discuss a thing I
know absolutely nothing about," she
said succinctly.
"Most of It Is in building lots and
factories in Belfast, of course. It was
more in the nature of a question than
a declaration. "The old family castle
Isn't very much of an asset, I take it."
"I fancy you can trust Colonel Cas

"I suppose so," Bald the other re

convinced of that. Strange, however,
I that I haven't heard a word from him
' since he left us In London. I've been
expecting a cablegram from him every
day for nearly a fortnight, letting me
know when to expect him."
I "Are you going to California this
' winter for the flying?" asked Hetty.
j Sara entered at that juncture, and
they all sat down to listen for half an
hour to Leslie's harangue on the way
the California meet was being mis
managed, at 4he end of which he de
parted. I He took Booth away with him, much
to that young man's disgust.
; "Do you know, Brandy, old fellow,"
said he as they walked down Fifth ave
nue in the gathering dusk of the early
winter evening, "ever since I've begua
to suspect that damned old humbug of

What a close call I had!"
I Booth's sarcastic smile was hidden
by the dusk,
He made no pretense of
openly resenting the meanness of
spirit that moved Leslie to these cad
dish remarks. He merely announced
in a dry, cutting voice:
"I think Miss Castleton is to be con
gratulated that her injury is no greater
than nature made It in the beginning."
"What do you mean by 'nature?'"
"Nature gave her a father, didn't
"Well, why add Insult to injury?"
"By Jove! Oh, 1 say, old man!"
They parted at the next corner. As
Booth started to cross over to the
Plaza, Leslie called out after him:
"I say, Brandy, just a second, please.
Are you going to marry Miss Castle
ton?" "I am."
"Then, I retract the scurvy things I
said back there. I asked her to marry
me three times and she refused me
three times. What I said about the
brambles was rotten. I'd ask her again
if Mhought she's have me. There you
are, old fellow. I'm a rotten cad, but
I apologize to you just the same."
"You're learning, Leslie," said Booth,
taking the hand the other held out to

utes after dinner, "to discuss a very
Important matter, If you please, sir."
At nine o'clock, Booth was in Sara's
library, trying to grasp a new and re
markable phase in the character of
that amazing woman.
I He found Hetty waiting for him i
wncn no arnvea.
j "I don't know what it all means,
Brandon," she said hurriedly, looking
j over her shoulder as she spoke. "Sara
says that she has come to a decision
of Bomo sort. She wants us to hear
her plan before making it final. I I
don't understand her at all tonight"
I "" "
"It can't be anything serious, dear-
' est," he said, but something cold and
nameless oppressed him just the same.
"She asked me If I had finally de
cided to to be your wife, Brandon. I
said I had asked you for two or three
days more in which to decide. It
seemed to depress her. She said she

He stared for a moment, and then
his face brightened. "And so do 1, Hat
ty, so do I! They ought to know!"
"I should feel so much easier if the
whole world knew," said she earnestly.
Sara heard the girl's words as she
etood in the door. She came forward
with a strange even abashed smile,
after closing the door behind her.
"I don't agree with you, dearest,
when you say that the .world should
know, but I have come to the conciu
1 slon that you should be tried and ac
quitted by a jury made up of Challld
Wrandall's own flesh and blood. The
Wrandalls must know the truth."
The Jury of Four.
The Wrandalls sat waiting and won
dering. They had been sent for and
they had deigned to respond, much to
their own surprise. Redmond Wran
dall occupied a place at tho head of
the library table. At his right sat his
wlfe Vivian and Leslie, by direction,
took'seats at the side of the long table,
which had been cleared of its mass of
books and magazines. Lawyer Car
roll was at the other end of the table,
perceptibly nervous and anxious. Het
ty sat a little apart from the others, a
rather forlorn, detached member of the
. conclave. Brandon Booth, pale-faced
' and alert, drew up a chair alongside
Carroll, facing Sara who alone re-
' mained standing, directly opposite the
four Wrandalls.
Not one of the Wrandalls knew why
they, as a family, were there. They
had not the slightest premonition of
. what was to come.
I The Wrandalls had been routed
from their comfortable fireside for
what? They were asking the question
of themselves and they were .waiting
stonily for the answer.
i "It Is very stuffy In here," Vivian
had said with a glance at the closed
doors after Sara had successfully
placed her jury In the box.
"Keep still, Vlv","" whispered Leslie,
with a fine assumption of awe. "It's a
spiritualistic meeting. You'll scare
the spooks away."
It was at this juncture that Sarat
rose irom ner cnair and raced tnem,
as calmly, as comnlacently as if she
, were about to ask them to proceed to
the dining-room instead of to throw a
bomb into thqir midst that would shat
ter their smug serenity for all time to
come. With a glance at Mr. Carroll
she began, clearly, firmly and without

"I have asked you to come here to-
night to bo my judges. I am on trial,
You are about to hear the story of my
unspeakable perfidy. I only require of
you that you hear me to the end be
fore passing judgment."
At her words, Hetty and Booth start
ed perceptibly; a quick glance passed
between them, as if each was inquir
ing whether tho other had caught the
extraordinary words of self-indictment.
I A puzzled frown appeared on Hetty's
' brow.
1 "Perfidy?" Interposed Mr. Wrandall.
His wife's expression changed from
one of bored indifference to sharp in
quiry. Leslie paused in the act of
lighting a cigarette.

their chairs. The match burned Les-

To the end of my days I could have
gone on loving him In spite of tho
cruel return he gave for my love and
loyalty. I shall not attempt to tell
you of the .countless lapses of fidelity
on his part. You would not believe me.
But bo always came back to me with
the pitiful love he had for me, and 1
forgave him his transgressions. These
things you know. He confessed many
things to you, Mr. Wrandall. He
humbled himself to me. Perhaps you
will recall that I never complained to
you of him. What rancor I had Wftn
always directed toward you, his fam
ily, who would see no wrong In your
king but looked upon me as dirt be
neath his feet. There were moments
when I could have slain him with my
own hands, but my heart rebelled.
There were times when ho said to me
that I ought to kill him for the things
he had done. You may now understand
what I mean when I say that the girl
who went to Burton's inn with him
did me a service. I will not say that
I considered her guiltless at the time.
On the contrary, I looked upon her In
quite a different way. I had no means
of knowing then that she was as pure
as snow and that he would have de
spoiled her of everything that was
sweet and sacred to her. She took hia
life In order to save that which was
dearer to her than her own life, and
she was on her way to pay for her
deed with her life If necessary when
I came upon her and Intervened."
"You you know who she Is?" said
Mr. Wrandall, in a low, incredulous
"I have known almost from the be
ginning. Presently you will hear her
story, from her own lips."
Involuntarily four pairs of eyes shift
ed. They looked blankly at Hetty Cas
tleton. Speaking swiftly, Sara depicted the
scenes and sensations experienced dur
ing that memorable motor journey to
New York city.
"I could not believe that she was a
vicious creature, even then. Some
thing told me that she was a tender,
gentle thing who had fallen Into evil
hands and had struck because she
was unevll. I did not doubt that Bhe
had been my husband's mistress, but
I could not destroy tho conviction that
somehow she had been justified In
doing the thing she had done. My
gravest mistake was in refusing to
hear her story In all of Its details.
I only permitted her to acknowledge
that she had killed him, no more. I
did not want to hear the thing which
I assumed to be true. Therein lies
my deepest fault. For months and
months I misjudged her in my heart,
yet secretly loved her. Now I under
stand why I loved her. It was because
she was innocent of the only crime I
could lay at her feet. Now I come
to the crime of which I stand self
accused. I must have been mad all
these months. I have no other defense
to offer. You may take it as you see
it for yourselves. I do not ask for
pardon. After I deliberately had set
about to shield this unhappy girl to

the one woman whom I could put my
finger upon as having robbed mo of
my husband's love. You see I put It
mildly. I have hated all of you, Mrs.
Wrandall, even as you have hated me.
Today now I do not feel as I did In
other days toward you. I do not love
you, still I do not hate you. I do not
forgive you, and yet I think I have
come to see things from your point
of view. I can only repeat that I
do not hate you as I once did."
She paused. The Wrandalls were
too deeply submerged in horror to
I speak. They merely stared at her as
' lf stupefied; as breathless, as motion-
less as stones.
"There came a day when I observed
' that Leslie was attracted by the guest

"Good God!" fell from Leslie's lips.
"You you had that. In mind?"
"It became a fixed, inflexible pur
