docs in thu groat liroplaco and out-
sldo of tho bungalow tho trees lashed
to nnd fro in tho strong wind. Tho
rain drummed steadily on tho roof
without ono break in tho stendy
downpour until Nnncy tossed her
magazine nsldo and walked, tho floor
to steady her nerves.
Sho was all alono in this llttlo
mountnln lodge; all about her was
the primeval forest filled with num
berless vague terrors of thojiighL-.
Nancy was nfrald. Sho hnd beon
alono since threo o'clock that after
noon when her guest, Mrs. Carruth
ors. had suddenly left for homo lu
rcsponso to a telegram brought
through miles of dripping forest by a
messenger from Bldwcll station.
Timothy Finn, tho man of all work,
had harnessed tho horses to tho buck-
board and taken Mrs.J Carruthors to
tho station. At tho last moment,
Timothy's wife, Mary Finn, had
climbed In besldo her husband, an-
nniincinir that she had a dozen er
rands to bo nttended to In tho vlllaso
and that sho would bo homo with
Tim In tlmo to proparo Miss Nancy's
In tho husto of their departuro
and tho last hurried good-bys from
Mm. Carruthors. Nancy did not
realize tho sl-nlflcnnco of being loft
alono In that Isolated spot.
When tho sound of tho wagon
wheels had dlod away and there re
mained only tho rain nnd tho wind
nnd tho flro on the hearth sho felt n
sudden pang of terror nt tho lonoll
Tho Finns woro nddlctod to drink
when opportunity offered, nnd Nancy
Rhiuldnrnd as sho realized that it
might bo hours boforo thoy returned
and they might not como home un
til morning!
Sho had fastened every door and
window nnd had drawn tho curtains
closely and pinned them at tho edges
She Was All Alone.
bo that no curious oyo might discover
that sho wns alono.
Hours passed. Sho tried to read,
but tho printed words hold no mean
ing for her. Sho opened tho piano,
but the sound of tho instrument only
Intensified tho stillness.
Tho clock in the corner chimed ten
and still thero was no consatlon of
the rain nor of tho lashing wind.
Nancy thought of her father down
In tho close, hot city, and sho know
ho wns counting tho days till Fri
day, whon ho would run up to tho
lodgo for his week's stay. Evory
other wook Simon Mead spent up
horo in tho mountains. Thero was
usually a Jolly party of young peo
ple horo, too, chaperoned by Mrs.
Mend, but now sho had gono to tho
city with her husband ntid Mrs.
Carruthors and Nancy Mead had
beon loft alone for a fow days.
"I don't caro how Intoxicated thoy
aro If thoy will only como," doclared
Nancy for tho tenth tlmo, as sho
listened In vain for tho sound of re
turning wheols. "I simply can't stay
hero alono nil night."
Tho clock struck 11, and almost ns
If It had been waiting for that hour
there followed tho sound of n human
volco outside, a man's volco calling
for help.
Nancy shuddered. Perhaps It wan
tho Finns coming homo. Sho tip
toed up tho stairs that ran to tho half
ntory under tho cnvoB and punbod
nBldo a small casement window. Tho
rain fell on her hair and face, but tho
night air felt cool nnd refreshing
Thero was no sound of whocls, but
ns'aln camo tho man's volco.
"Bungalow, ahoy! Help!"
It was not tho rich broguo of Tim
cthy Finn, nor was It tho voice of a
backswoodsmau that called.
Nancy barkened to Its call, shud-
dorltig nt Its growing feohlonosa, not
daring to go forth In nnswor to It,
for sho had from a child been afraid
of tho night with Its thousand terrors,
and this forost was a ninzo to her
niter sunset.
Tho volco sounded again; it was
fixjm tho lako. Somo nuln hnd met
with nn nccldont, nnd porhaps might
dto unless sho could go to his aid.
Thou the toIco became silent and
Nancy uttered a little sob and dashed
down th stnlrs to tbo coat closet.
Eho wrapped herself In a largs uhrtwr
belonging to her father and let her
self out Into tho dripping night.
Sho called onco timidly, and the
wayfarer heard her and answered
with a note of hopo In hla voice.
Nnncy mado her way townrd tho
lako, now and then bumping Into
trees or stumbling over roots, for lu
tho pitch dnrknoss sho could not sea
a hand's breadth before her.
"Hero!" said tho volco close at
linnd, and Nancy flounderod through
tho wot leaves until sho touched
something nllve. Suppressing a do
Biro to scream, she nsked bravely:
"What la tho matter?"
"I bcllovo I've broken my leg I've
been lying- hero for several hours, I
saw thu lights of tho bungalow, but
It was so qulot thero I was nfrald
It was deserted. If you can call ono
of the men ho might help m Innldo."
IfwBs n pleasant, refined' vSlce with
a note of authority.
"I will help you in," said Nancy
firmly, and sho bent down to assist-
Ho was a big mnn, nnd heavy and
whatever ngony It cost him to crawl
ovor tho hundred yards that led to
tho bungalow no ono but himself
over knew. Nancy wont besldo him,
helping him over tho rough places
aud at tho front steps supporting
him into tho houso.
When tho door closed behind them
ho sank forward on tho great boar-
skin rugs nnd fainted nwny.
Nnncy quite forgot to bo afraid.
With an unconBciotiB stranger upon
her hands, sho thought of nothing
olso. Sho ran from mediclno closet
to pantry nnd thonco to tho stovo.
whero she heated n kcttlo of water.
Sho mndo him ns comfortable as pos
slblo on tho soft skins on tho floor,
propped his head with pillows, re
stored him with stimulants and then
sat down nnd looked at him.
Ho was a youngish man, perhaps In
his early forties, handsome, nnd evi
dently well-dressed In splto of tho
mud that ho had accumulated slnco
nln fall.
"I am sorry that I cannot send for
n doctor Just yet," sho murmured
shyly. "I hopo you aro not suffering
much pain."
"Thank you a llttlo twlngo now
and then." Ho winced ns ho spoko.
"You wouldn't havo to go far to find
a doctor tonight I'm Dr. Milbank,
tho only physician within fifteen
"Oh, I've heard of you," murmured
Ho nodded. "I was on my "way to
the Dexter placo thoy sent for mo
and I had to leave my horso back
thore In. tho woods and walk. I fell
over a root and am qulto sura I'vo
broken my leg; When your mon got
around X. bcllovo I can direct them
how to sot It." And with tho
last words ha drowsed off to sleep.
Ho slept until the gray dawn
pierced tho curtained windows -with a
wnn light. Timothy Finn nnd his wlfo
crept home, shamefaced and peni
tent, nnd followed Nancy's stern
bidding with alacrity. Dr. Milbank
nwoke to a blazing flro and such
rough medical assistance as tho girl
and her servants could render.
Dr. Milbank remained at the bunga
low for several weeks as the guest
of thu Meads, and when ho went
away, cured, It was with tho Imago
of Nancy Mead enshrined in hla
Nancy had quite lost her timidity
of the forest at night.
"I can never be afraid of it again
nor lmagtno it filled with horrors,"
she sometimes says, "for you know I
found my husband there!"
And Timothy Finn and his wlfo
take half the credit for this romance
to themselves.
