"Five years In the state penitentiary at hard labor," was the sentence, and the prisoner simply bowed bis baud and did not lift it as he was led away. Then it was to sweep the courtroom with one swift, probing glance. His face fell. If he hoped to find a friendly or familiar face there be wus doomed to disappointment. Wild, . reckless spendthrift that he was, he had reached the end of his Tope. A year previous, urged on by bis riotous acts, his father, a man of wealth, had turned hlra out of his home and disowned him. Six months later the parents of his fiancee, sor rowful, but loyal Lettie Vivian, had told him that she had been 6ent away to distant friends where he could not And her and that all was over between them. More latterly Lettie had accepted the decision of father and betrothed. Be had plunged Into new recklessness. They were doubtless aware of his predicament, but no one had extend d a helping hand. As a common criminal, Blake Arnold was shut out from the world as a branded man, and stolidly, doggedly accepted the dull, Irksome routine of prison life. - And all the time poor, pining Let tie passed her days In vain longing for a sight of the only man she had ever loved and her nights were tear ful ones. She could not forget, and she told her parents so. Practically exiled with an aged aunt, she faith fully kept her promise not to write to Blake, and when his final downfall was announced In the public prints her aunt found her staring at the dread Intelligence n a dazed, stony way as if a final blow had prostrated her. ;. "My poor, suffering dove 1" sobbed the gentle-spirited woman. "Do net become utterly heartbroken." - "No." answered Lettie quietly, "I shall only wait." "You will wait?" repeated her aunt vaguely. "For his release and his redemp tion. Both will come In time. His love for me can never die. It will purify and save him. We shall meet again sometime, somewhere." ' Two years had passed by when the United States entered the war. Let tie found some relief from her an- Silsh by contributing her services to ed Cross home work. It was late In the year when her aunt, opening a morning newspaper, stared, paled, and hastening furtively Into another room, thrust the newspaper Into a blazing grate. She had read in the Journal of the escape from prison of Blake Arnold, an honor convict, whose good conduct entitled him to a remis sion of his sentence and whose case had been - favorably regarded by the pardon board. - So Lettie mourned on and dreamed on, all unaware that the man she could sot forget was free. Her aunt fretted And feared for many weeks, dreading the possible appearance of Blake la quest of Lettie. He did not come, nor 41d any letter, and the months rolled On. : It was late in the year when the boys came marching home. There was a fragmentary contingent of a regi ment which had displayed the highest valor In one of the most desperate bat tles of the war. The son of the gov ernor of the state was in the group, and the idol of the regiment was a soldier, Berton Arleigh, who had saved the life of the young man and had led a forlorn hope that had turned the tide of the conflict Berton Arleigh had been terribly wounded and was on the convalescent list when what was left of the valorous regiment reached the home town. , The people of the capital could not do enough to honor these men, and the son of the governor had invited Ber ton Arleigh to become his guest. One day and night the young man remained Jn the palatial home of the officials. The next morning he sought a private Interview with the governor. 1 "1 think It best to quietly leave you be said, and then to the amazement of Us auditor he disclosed his true Iden-, tity. He was Blake Arnold, and the Intense patriotism of his nature, the. fceen willingness to redeem the past ty giving his life for his country, If mecesaary. had Influenced him to sur rfptltioir !y leave the fiiSori. - "Tou are more thna :a erol" de clared the deeply moved' official, '"Tou ?:i remain here my honored guest un 1 I father up the scattered strands t your broken life and cement them t new."

I'.iit (lieu, Hetty iiad not mingled with the society folk on the bill. This wa not the purpose of ber stay In the Rlraiigeiy divided township. She had come with a view of gaining local color and material for her latest serin I. She hud been duly warned upon her arrival against going unattended luto that region known as Stoke's Hollow, and divided by a running stream from the aristocracy of the hilltop. Aunt Fulsome's house was placed temporizingly between the two. And It was the weird desolation o Stoke's Hollow, which immediately won Bet ty's Interest, while the upper man sions were to ber but tircsomely alike. Many times she had ventured as close I to the dividing stream as old Nell would permit herself to be driven. And from ber seat on the mare's back, the unconventional young author could look across to the shabby buildings upon the forbidden side. Her adventure of this afternoon TwT been caused by curiosity In that di rection. . Old Nell, urged to cross ths stream showed her Indignant refusal by an unexpected turn about and run away, from which Betty hnd been res cued by an astonishingly handsome, modish young man, who opportunely appeared from among the bushes upon the disreputable side of the stream. Betty, thinking things over palpitat ingly, after leaving Nell safe In her stall, retraced her steps almost to the former scene. of disaster. Thi) young man who had actually risked his life to save hers, and to whom in her confusion she had neglected tq express appreciation, had vanished from sight as mysteriously as he had appeared. Betty hnd mentally scoffed at "love at first sight," even while she penned chnrinlng tales of Its possibilities. But this handsome young hero had left her with a yearning in her usually indifferent heart. Wistfully, Eliza beth Blair longed to see him again and to further know her deliverer. So Betty, gathering more assurance, approached the shabby building. It's air of grotesqueness delighted her; to all appearances here close to civiliza tion was still one wild, unfrequent ed spot. The place was evidently de serted, so she examined the queer knives on the wall Intently. Then with quick apprehension she turned fearfully about Men were coming. through the deep grass toward her, fierce, strange looking men, murmur. Ing and gesticulating together. In sudden terror she feared to go back through the doorway and face them. Behind her, stretched a crude curtain; tremblingly she withdrew be neath Its screening folds, finding with relief an open window nearby. Per haps, while the men were talking, she might be able to escape thus, unseen. Then, even as she reached desperate ly for the window ledge, Betty stood motionless, hands still upraised. "Walt I" cried the Imperative voice, and In It Betty recognized the haunt ing tones of her rescuer. Whirling, she peered through the crack In the curtain. Yes, it was he, clad in those same spotless white flan nets, his fine eyes flashing, his heavy hair rumpled on his forehead. But as, white faced, he defiantly faced the three desperadoes, one quickly drew a revolver, deliberately aiming It at her hero's head. With a shriek of triumph the three closed around him, Betty saw bis bravely defiant glance as he faced them. "So you want the reward for our capture?" one said. "Did you think we'd let you get out of here alive?" Courage came suddenly to the hid ing girl. She must help this man. Had he hesitated in risking his life for her sake? To escape and bring aid would be useless. These ferocious, lawless creatures would by that time have his life. No, she must act now. Beyond the curtain hung one of the guns. If she could rush out and snatching it, place It In her hero's hands And with the swift silence of a pan ther, that Is Just what Betty , did. Then breathless she stood staring from one perplexed face to another. Instead of endeavoring to protect him self with the guh'i her hero stood look ing Into her face In stupid admiration, while unmistakable grins spread over the faces of the desperadoes. "Tou were not supposed to be in the picture," said one with a laugh. Across the grass came a wrathful camera man. ; "What did you do that for?" he de manded. "Tou've spoiled the whole .film." . f -Slowly the truth came ; to Betty. She had Idiotically stumbled upon a motion picture In preparation. "But the Stokes outlaws? she questioned uncertainly- "Oh I they are Just a lot of harm less, lazy natives," her hero explained, "who were glad to rent us their, quar ters." Into the eyes of the "movie Idol" came an unstudied, enger light. "Will you wait until we go through this again." he begged. "I want tr see you. after." And Hetty waited. Truth Is s ir.'n'ii more satisfying tfcaii fiction. CI IARTER OF INCORPORATION OF..OKOLONA CpMLTERY ASSOCIATION.
