"What are you do ing here?" "I am on my way to join General Lafayette." "But you will be captured. It is dan gerous. The country is full of British soldiers." "So I know," Erskine said dryly. "When did you get here?" "Twenty minutes ago. I would not have been welcome just then. I wait ed in the hedge. I saw you had com pany." "Did you see them?" she faltered. "I even recognized one of them." Barbara sank into a chair, her elbo'y on one arm, her chin in her hand. her face turned, her eyes looking outdoors. She said nothing, but the toe of her slipper began to tap the floor gently. 'T'here was no further use for indirec tion or concealment. "Barbara," Erskine said with some sternness, and his tone quickened the tapping of the slipper and made her little mouth tighten, "what does all this mean?" "Did you see," she answered, with out looking at him, "that the crops were all destroyed and the cattle and horses were ill gone?" "Why did they spare the house?" The girl's bosom rose with one quick, defiant intake of breath, and for a moment she held it. "Dane Grey saved our home." "How?" "He had known Colonel Tarleton in London and had done something for him over there." "flow did he get in communication with Colonel Tarleton when he was on oflicer in the American army?" The girl would not answer. "Was he taken prisoner?" Still she was silent, for the sarcasm in Ers kine's voice was angering her. "lie fought once under Benedict Arnold--perhaps he is fighting with him now." "No '" she cried hotly. "Then he must be a-" She did not allow him to utter the word. "Why Mr. Grey is in British uni form is his secret--not mine." "And why he is here is-yours." "Exactly '" she flamed. "You are a soldier. I.earn what you want to know froni him. You are my cousin. but you are going leyond the rights of blood. I won't stand it-I won't stand it-frotn anybody." "I don't understand you. Barara I don't know you.
