The last vesti'-'e of color left the

his forehead was moist.
"I don't recollect havins iriven any
such advice." he declared. lie tried to
maintain the contemptuous note, but
there was a sudden hoarseness that he
could not control.
"I was nf raid you wouldn't." paid
Kayton primly, picLinjr up the sheaf of
typewritten dictograph notes. "That's
why I reminded you." Ho glanced at
one of the pafres. "It w:ts as a law

Mr. Huriey wiped Lis forehead with

up story of this sort!" he rasjped out in
a hoarse voice.
Kaytou gazed at him a moment and
then dropped the papers on the desk.
"Well. Hurley," he said disgustedly, '
"you can go to the devil your own way.
If you b.iefTt seuse enough to see
that it's better to make a clean breast
of it and stand for a charge of man

counterfeiting crook that tried to
blackmail an old man and murdered

under arrest, and the charge is murder
in the first degree!" He picked up the
telephone as Hurley made a gesture to
restrain him. "All right, Leisch," he
"Just a minute, Mr. Kayton!"
"You're just a minute too late," re
torted the detectiye. "Here, boys," he
went ou, as a couple of bis men ap
peared at the door. "Take this fellow
away with you."
The nest instant the handcuffs were
on his wrists and the officers were
searching his pockets. - Bat he hardly
noticed them. His face had suddenly
grown haggard, his eyes dull with de
spair. f Before God. Kayton!" he began, de
spairingly. "I tell you it was an acci

and threatened to show me up. I took

"I thought you'd like to say poodby!

"Oh!" eselatmed the girl. "Shan't I j
ever see you again?" j
"No!'' was the low but emphatic re-!
The girl held out her hand.
"Goodby." she said gently.
The woman quickly seized the rrof-
fered hand and drew her close.
' "Goodby," she said brokenly and '
looked into the girl's eyes. "You're
where I was twenty years a so. You i
have Just the same possibilities for'
love and self sacrifice. This man loves '

crimson and groped for something un- j

at it whatever it was under bin

Kayton looked iip at her quickly. '
"Anything you want to do for Mrs. !

knocking in his ears that coufused

thin commotion because the girl reso

"Oh, thanks, thanks!" s'.;e murmured
