But It was with man the had to deal—a dangerous, hut reasoning man with few and .atrophied in^tincta—and with no az~| perlenes In traps; and. therefore. In no dread of them. Before she started she had thrown a cartridge Into the breech of her rifle. Now she pocketed her torch and seated herself between the two big three feet behind piii»s and about the hidden trap.

Harrod lows made by milllonnu-e and fanatic! What of It? He ha* her love and her respect—and her deep, deep pity. And those were enough for, any girl to fight for. Dawn spread a silvery light above the pine«, but Quintana's fire still reddened the tree trunks; and she could hear him feeding It at inter vais. Finally she saw him. He came out on the edge of the ruddy ring of light and stood peering around at the woods where already a vague graynees was revealing nearer trees When, finally, ho turned hla back and looked at hla fire. Eve rose and stood between the two big pines. | Behind one of them oho placed her rifle. I It was growing lighter in the, woods. She could see Quintana In tho fire ring and outside—saw him ' go to the spring rivulet. He flat. ! drink, then on his knees, wash face and hands In the Icy water. It became plain to her that he was nearly ready to depart, watched him preparing. And now she could see him plainly and know him to be Quintana and no other. He nad a light basket pack. He j put some articles Into It. stretched ' himself and yawned, pulled on his hat, hoisted the pack and fastened It to his back, stood staring at the j fire for a long time; then, wltlh aj sudden upward look at tho zenith where a slight flush stained a cloud. She he picked up his rifle. At that moment Eve called to him in a clear and steady voice. Tho effect on Quintana was In stant; ho was behind a tree before her voice ceased. "Hallo! Hi! Ton over there!" she called again. "This Is Eve Strnyer. I'm looking for Clinch! He hasn't been homo all night. Have you seen , him?" ' After a moment ehe saw Quin tana's head watching her—not at the shoulder-height of a man. but close to the ground and Juat above the (ree roots. "Hey!" she cried. "What's the matter with you over there? I'm asking you who you are and If you've seen my father?" After a while she saw Quintana coming toward her, circling, creep ing swiftly from tree to tree. As he flitted through tho shadows the trees between which she was standing hit her from him a mom ent, Instantly she placed her rifle on the ground and kicked the pins needles over It. | faX 1 I J mf \ \ | | dlS ». ■S', m ê I » Ttw girl's cry echoed the »tumbl ing clash of the man.

And now, from behind a pine, and startlingly near her, came Quintana, moving with confident grace yet bolding his rifle ready for any em crgency.
