"I aik but one thing,** be said quick
"And what la that?"
But again he checked himself.
"No," he said, "I am not free to aak
anything of you."
And that answer to Enid Maltland
waa like a knife thrust in the heart
The two had been standing confront'
Ing each other. Her heart grew
faint within her. She atretched out
her hand vaguely as if for support.
!He stepped toward her, but before be
reached her, she caught the back of
the chair and sank down weakly.
That he should be bound and not free
had never once occurred to her: she
ihad quite misinterpreted the meaning
of his remark.
The man did not help her, he coald
tot help her. He Just stood and
looked at her. She fought valiantly
for self-control a moment or two and
then, utterly obllvloua to the betrayal
9t her feelings involved In the ques
tion—the moments were too great for
consideration of such trivial matters

"Where Is she now?"
"But you said you were not free."
"Did you care so much for her that
"Enid," he cried desperately. "Be
lieve me, I never knew what love
was until I met you."
The secret was out now It had
Wen known to her long since, but
now it waa publicly proclaimed.
Even a man as blind, as obsessed, as
he could not mistake the joy that il
luminated her face at this announce
ment. That very joy and satisfaction
produced upon him. however, a very
different effect than might have been
anticipated. Had be been free, In
deed, he would have swept her to his
breast and covered her sweet face
With kisses broken by whispered
Vords of passionate endearment. In
stead of that he shrank back from her
and tt waa she who was forced to
take up the burden of the conversa
"Ton say that ahe la dead," aha b*
gan In sweet appealing bewilderment,
"and that you care so much for me
and yet you—"
"I am a murderer." he broke out
iarahly. "There Is blood upon my
hands, the blood of a woman who
loved me and whom, boy as I was, I
thought that I loved. She was my
Wife, I killed her."
"Great God," cried the girl amased
beyond measure or expectation by
this sudden avowal which she had
once auspected, and her hand instinct
trely went to the bosom of her dress
where she kept that soiled, water
stained packet of lettera, "are you
"I am the man that did that thing,
but what do you know?" he aaked
fUlckly, amased in his turn.
"Old Klrkby, my uncle Robert Malt
land, told me your story they said
that you had disappeared from the
Haunts of men—"
"And they were right. What elae
tfas there for me to doT Although In
accent of crime, I was blood guilty.
I was mad. No punlahment could be

the stern, awful, appalling fact I

stretched out his hand as he asked
that last question, almost as If he had
offered It to her. She made the best
answer possible to his demand, for be
fore he could divine what she would
be at, she had aeised his hand and
klased It and this time It was the man
whoae knees gave way. He sank
down In the chair and buried his face
in his hands.
"Oh, God! Oh, God!" he cried In
his humiliation and shame, "if I had
only met you first, or if my wife had

Of her sight, it seemed. I don't know
what there was in me to have in
spired such devotion, but I must
speak tbe truth, however it may
sound. 8he seemed wild, crazy about
me. I didn't understand it, frankly 1
didn't know what such love was—then
—but I took her along. Shall I not be
honest with yon? In spite of the at

even then that she was not the mate

That made it harder—what 1 had to

"Yes, I know."
"The oniy thing I could dc

I could do no less than be true and
loyal to the remembrance. It wasn't
a sacrifice either until you came, but
as soon as you opened your eyes and
looked into mine In the rain and the
storm upon the rock to which I had
carried you after I had fought for you
I knew that I loved you. I knew that
the love that had come into my heart
was the love of which I had dreamed,
that everything that had gone before

this cabin. It repeated them over and
