isfacti.m of bearing a humble, discreet
voice at the other end. which still had
a cold defiance in it beneath tbe ve
neer of humility.
"Ah. Lambert"" she exclaimed over
tbe wire. They've got you out. eU?
Tired of being a wax work?"
Iut the trainer paid no attention to
tae Jibing quality of her tones and
plung?d info a recital of. what he had
heard while he posed as Dr. Crippeu.
"it's not true."' sbe exclaimed over
the wire. "You're inventing it to get
at me! Tom Lambert, will you swear
it is true:"
Lord Eeverley entered during her
concluding words and she explained
apidly to him.
"What cock and bull story's this?"
But after another short talk with
Lambert she continued to Beverley.
"It's true: lie says he overheard a
plot to hill The Whip. They mean to
uncouple the horse box at Manfield
junction just the other side of the
tunnel and leave it where the down
express '11 run into it and smash the
whole t hit; up."
Lord Beverley now talked with Lam
bert in bis turn.
If this story of yours is true, whose
plot Is it':" he asked. "What! Captain
Sartoris. Greviile! Are you mad or
drunk, sir. to make such an accusa
tion? You'll take your oath upon it?
Going by the same trnin as The Whip
prevent the horse's starting at any
cost. Yes; I'll do that."
He snapped up the receiver when
they heard tbe whistle of the train as
it left l'aleoiihursf station.
"You can't. There noes the train,"
lamented Mrs. Beamish.
"Too late!'' exclaimed Beverley. "I
wouldn't have- that horse hurt for
three times what she stands to win.
ood heavens. Betty. Harry Anson nnd
the others we must save them."
But Mrs. Beamish was already on
hor ngit.ited but rapid way to the door.
'An.we will:" she cried. "It is my
doing. My stupid jealousy has led to
it all. Its my duty to "it things
straight, and I'm going to do it."
"How?" qui.-.zed the marquis.
"Give me the big motor and a couple
of men." she said, "and I'll race the
traiu and get to the tunnel first."
and arranged the sli cord
which would release tUe coupler when ,
it was pulled, and now they were wait- j
ing for The Whip to lie led aboard. I
Lady Diana ami Harry Anson were I
standing at the intelligent auimal's j
head while the girl said her goodbys
to the racer she loved and upon whose
successful performance ut .Newmarket j
depended so much. j
"Goodby." she whiskered to the horse
softly. "You're to run your first great
race. Win it; win it, for you're carry
ing my heart:'
Almost it seemed as though The Whip
understood, for she caressed with her
muzzle the baud of the girl.
Then Iidy Diana turned to the
"Goodby. Harry:' she said. - "Go and
win for tbe honor of the stable for
the honor of our colors and for me!

And then she stood aside. Bapidly

Iredded down. Then wliiie Harry wav
ed his hand and Lady Diana and the
rest on the platform responded, tbe
train which bad backed down bore oh
the ear and its own load of passengers.
Hrry, who knew that the succeed
ing days would be of great activity,
went to bed in his bunk in the com

English car. while the train attained
a high rate of speed and entered Fal
He promised himself that bb would
keep one eye on the horse, even while
the train was in motion and but little
danger was to be apprehended from
those to whose interest it might be to

They were In the tunnel when Cap
tain Sartori.-s opened a door of a car
riage which he had quite to himself,
lie had joined the train further to tbe
north of Falconhurst and none of the
I-'alconliiirt pe"p'e had known that he
was l;i the train.

He wished t hurl it in such a way I
that the bame would surely be ex tin- J
gnished. as he wanted no warning to
be given to the train bel.ftid which
was to complete his project. I
He realized that if he merely dropped j
the lantern to the line there was a
bare possibility that it would continue
His semicircular swings were justi
fied a moment later, when he flung the
lamp to the line, for there was a sud
den impact, and then no light showed.
With one foot resting upon the car
riage and oue upon the horse box, he
prlled the slip cord and had the in
stant pleasure of seeing the horse box
and its freight drop behind.
The Whip would not run. The race
would be lost.- He would lie saved
from Kelly's clutches. Braneaster
would be impoverished and the mar
riage f Lady Diana and Braneaster
put far off.
Quietly he slipped along the foot
plate and regained his own carriage
and compartment without his absence
having been noted.
With a speed that gradually fell
away the horse box.' with Tbe Whip
inside nnd Harry fast asleep, rumbled
through the tunnel and came to a stop
on the main line, dirnctly iu the path
of tbe first train which should come
along, near ManScld junction.
The whistle nnd tbe sounds of the
rapid approach through the tunnel of
the down express came very plainly
through the darkness, just as a motor
containing two men and Mrs. Beam
ish dashed around a bend in the road
and came to a palpitating, panting
stop near the horse box and at one side
of the line.
Mrs. Beamish and her two escorts
from tjher establishment below stairs at
Falcorilmrst darted across tho line and
pounded upon the door of the horse
box as the train in the tunnel moved
nearer and nearer.
Finally Harry put bis head out of
the window nnd the frenzied voice of
Mrs. Beamish came to him:
"Quick. Harry! The down express's
on you! Y'ou're cut off and Tlie Whip
and you'll be killed:" she shouted
above the roar of the oncoming train.
Harry cast one glance behind him,
saw the rushing express and then
threw down the sidedoor of the horse
The Whip was led across the line
and to safety under the very glare of
the headlight of the express. Not a
serond after this the engine of the ex
press ploughed into the car just left
by Harry and Tho Whip and was de
railed, while the engine driver feli,
badly bni-f. to the ground.
The light impediment of the horse
box served to derail several of tbe car
riages behind, which had been travel
iug at high wpeed, and a number of
passengers were burled out or thrown
violently against iiartltions and other
immovable objects with the train.
Andd escaping steam and a fire,
which had started among the wreck
age, the work of succor was begun.
Among those who labored none
worked with greater courage Ihan the
Rev. Verner Haslam. His train hud

The passage through the yard of
Harry Anson gave him nn idea.
"Stop that, Betty," he said sternly.
"It isn't n thing for joking."
Then he beckoned Harry to him.
"Harry, my lad." he said, "if you can.

The boy could and did at once.

said vigorously, "for what you did last

"From Captain Sartoris?" she half
