Her aunt, Miss Destiny, accuser her, but promises alienee for half her Inheritance. Vance becomes engaged to (icrtrude and goes to L..111I011, where he encounters Wal ler Monk, Gertrude's father, posing as Wentworth Marr, a wealth) bachelor. I-Varlng cNpoj-uro, he disappear. Vance, on his return to Certrude's home, finds Strlver, a young gardener, making forcible avowal of love ti her. Vance at most strangles Strlver, who threat ens to denounce Gertrude as a murderess. Me admits that ho himself was iu the house of Mrs. Caldershaw, his aunt, at the time of the murder. Chapter XXXIV. Lady Mabel's Visit. Of course In daring Strlver to do his worst I knew that f was running t'-nslderalile risk. The man was crazy with love, and might be suf llciently reckless of consequences to himself to tell the police all that he had confessed to us. Then (lor Undo would certainly be arretted on his evidence. Strlver, as an ac complice after the fact, would he a nested also; and then Justice would have to remove the bandage fioni her eyes to loam which of the two was guilty. In my own mind 1 had no doubt of (lertrude's Innocence, hut an unbiased Jury might take, and prolmbl would take, u the declarations of Strlver, a very dif ferent view. I had dared much on the spur of the moment, and had defied a Jealous man. There faie for the next two or three days I was uneasy. 'Hut I did not permit Certi'iide to see that I was d -lib: fill of Strlvor'a silence. When she recovered from her faint hho exprrsse! herself afraid lest he should speak out. and. In point of fact, voiced my sentiments. Hut In order to pacify her I made light of her Tears. "My dear, much as the man luve.i you, he certainly will not place his neck In a no-se to lie rovng".1 on you," I said again and again. "II ' Is too deeply Implicated by rtiuuliu away with my car and with your cloak, and with being in the house when the crime was actually commit ted, to dare tell the pullce the truth Kven if he did go with his story I doubt If you wvuld be arrested, tu op. the face of It he looks niit'h more guilty." "Do you think lie Is guilty, Cy rus?" she asked tremulously "Well," I spoke doubtfully, "sotm such thought struck me once r twice. He was In the house, he wanted the eye to learn the s re of the hiding-place, and lie knew that you had paid a visit. He might have murdered tho old lady with your hat jiln so as to throw the blame on you, and then might have hoped to Implicate you still further by using your cloak as a disguise. I That OUes mistook him for a woman which ho counted upon would, of nurse, aid him to eutange y u yef more Iu the snare.

"I hoH? not I hope n. t," she said i again shivering, "nnd yet" then she went off on a now line of thought "If he placed the eye there, why should he take It nw.iy again?" "He may not have done so. Do y in know, Cettnide, I should not he surprised If your Aunt Julia had It. She wanted the oye, as wo know, because hc desires t,i Uandle the money. Apparently she told Joseph of your visit to Mootley, so that he might go there on the name day and untlclpnte your Itminlng the serrel from Mis. Cnldorahaw." "Hut what would ahe gain by that?" "Sh" would be nb tj make Jos eph give her part of the money when he found It," I replied quickly. "Then you think she anticipated the murder?" "Not for one moment, my dear. With all her faults, .vour aunt Is not wlcted enough to deliberately urge n man to commit murder. Hut she sent Joseph abend first, trusting that Mrs. Ciildcrehnvv vvculd tell him the secret belore you arrived. Then lie could return with the cipher twi they could understand It together folve It, that's it. Hut, as things turned out all this is pure theory, mind -Joseph did not show her the eye." "Hut he could not have had It, by his own coiU'ossl'ii." Insisted (lor Undo. "Quite so. Hut who else coy Id have placed the eye on the drawing loom table, my dearest? I suspected Jlles; I suspected you: and I think Iu a way. I suspected Strlver, since he was working In the garden. Now I am sure. He put It there, because he was unable to read the cipher and hi made use of it to Implicate you. Miss Destiny found It and prohahly uow it l in her possession. That blass eye has a tniok of disappear ing." "The Disappearing l-'ye," said fiertrude. with :i wan smile, "but you are wrong about Aunt Julia, Cy rus. She was with me till the tlmt when you saw the eye, and I walked with her to the gate myseir. V were not In tho drawing-rom." I was disappointed when I heard this. "In that case, she could not have taken it," I mused, "Mr. Moak could not, iis he w.is with me all the time." "Cyrux, how can you think tlM papa would do such a thing?" I Hindi il covertly.

'Hut, hearing my promise n mind, I did not dare to epl,llu myself to the girl. I merely said that perhaps after all Strlver took the eye hack iiKnln, as he had every opportunity of doing so. "Hut he vvculd have prodeced It when we talked," insisted (iiitrutle again. "Xo, That would liu'iimlnate him too deeply. However, the eye, as I have said, seems to have a trick of appearing am! disappearing, so It will turn up again. .Meanwhile we will give Mr. Strlver the benefit of the doubt and assume him to be in nocent, although I'm hanged If his actions lock like It. He won't say anything, you may depend upon that." Sttlver did not, anil evidently my policy of during him to do his worst had proved successful, lie remained a week Iu lliir.valu, hut did not omo near the house. Then he disappear ii'.

Luckily there was a postscript stat ing that If (lertrude wanted money she wiis to apply to a lawyer wh so address was given. I handed back the letter with a shrug. Since Mr. Monk had departed, there was no reason for me to say anything at all, although I bad limited my sil ence to a fortnight. "I expect he's found some bust lies which will make him rich, and has had to go off iu a hurry. You can't miss him very much, (lertrude, darling, for he Is never here."
