The Man
C?pyriflvt, 1908. by Dodd. Me?d ? C*.
mllR neit morning was rainy.
A quick, rlolent storm had
rushed up from the sea during:
the night.
Chase, after a sleepless night, came
down and, without waiting for his
breakfast, hurried out upon the gallery
overlooking the harbor. Genevra
was there before him, pale, wistful,
heavy eyed, standing in the shelter of
a huge pilaster.
"Holllngsworth," she said drearily,
"do you believe he will come todayT'
"He?" he asked, puzzled.
"My uncle. The yacht was to call for
me not later than today."
"I remember," he said slowly. "It
may come, Genevra. The day is
She clasped his hand convulsively, a
desperate revolt In her soul.
"I almost hope that It may not come
for me!" she said, her voice shaking
with suppressed emotion. "It will not
come. I feel It In my hoart. We shall
die here together, Holllngsworth. Ah,
in that way I may escape the other
life. No, no! What am I saying? Of
course I want to leave this dreadful
island?this dreadful, beautiful, hateful,
happy island. Am I not too silly?"
She was speaking rapidly, almost hysterically,
a nervous, flickering smile on
her face.
"Dear one," he said gently, 'the
yacht will come. If It should not come
today my cruisers will forestall Its mission.
As sure as there Is a sea those
' cruisers will come." She looked into
j his eyes Intently, as If afraid of something
there. "Oh, I'm not madP* he
laughed. "You brought n cruiser to
me one day. I'll bring one to you In
return, we 11 be quits.
"Quits?" she murmured, hurt bj the
"Forgive me," he ??id, humbled.
"Hollingsworth," she said after a
long, tense scrutiny of the sea, "how
long will you remain on this Island 7"
"Perhaps until I die?If death should
come soon. If not. then God knows
how long."
"Listen to me," she said Intensely.
"For my sake you will not stay long.
Sou will come away before they kill
you. You will! Promise me. You will
come?to Paris? Some day. dear heart?
"To Taris?" he said, shaking his
head sadly. "No, dearest one. Not
sow. Listen: I hare In my bag upspairing
energy. The flag, limp In ths
damp air above the chateau, shot up
and down in pitiful eagerness.
But the small boat edged away from
close proximity to the tug and the
nearby dock. They spoke each other
at long and ever widening range. At
last the yachfs boat turned and fled
toward the trim white hull.
Almost before the startled, dazed
people on the balcony could grasp the
full and horrible truth the yacht had
lifted anchor and was slowly headed
out 1o sea.
Chase iooked grimly about him into
the questioning, stricken fares of his
companions. Tie drew his hand a -ross
bis moist f ifdiead.
"Ladies and pe- th-mon." he said seriously
and with -lit the f:*iftintent
to jest, "we are supposed i?i Jn' dead!"
There was a siiitrlo shriek from 1 !io
bride of Thomas Saunders. No sound

I am a comparatively poor

"And yon?you will decline?" she
"Yes. I shall go back to America,
where there are no princesses of royal
blood. Paris is no place for the disappointed,
castoff lover. I can't go
there. I love yon too madly. I'd go on

to do it, Genevra."
"But Paris is huge, Holllngsworth,"
she argued insistently, an eager, Im- i
pelling light in her eyes. "We would
be as far apart as If the ocean were
between us."
"Ah, but would we?" be demanded.
"It la almost unheard of for an
American to gain entree to our?to the
set in which?well, you understand,"
she said, blushing painfully in the
consciousness that she was touching
his pride. He smiled sadly.
"My dear, you will do me the honor
to remember that I am not trying to
get into your set. I am trying to induce
you to come into mine. You won't ?
be tempted, so thafs the end of It.
Beastly day, isn't It?" He uttered the I
trite commonplace as If no other
thought than thpt of the weather had
been in his mind. "By the way," he
resumed, with a most genial smile,
"for some queer, unmascullne reason I
took it into my head last night to
worry about the bride's trousseau.
How are you going to manage it if
you are unable to leave the island until?well,
say June?"
She returned his smile with one as
weeuy uemcueu no uu uuu oeen,
catching his spirit. "So good of you to
worry," she said, a defiant red In her
cheeks. "You forget that I have a postponed
trousseau at home. A few stitches

Oh, It will be so simple! What la it?
What do you see?"
He was looking eagerly. Intently toward
the long, low headland beyond
the town of Aratat.

i An Instant later they were sending
wild cries of Joy through the chateau,
and people were rushing toward them
from all quarters.
The trim white thing that glided
across the harbor, graceful as a bird,
was the marquis' yacht!
It Is needless to describe the Joyous
gaie that swept the chateau Into a
maelstrom of emotions.
They saw the tug put out to meet the ,
