Cj CHAPTER VIII.—Continued.
} Furious as the man was I felt no
fear of him, merely an Intense dis-
gust that his hands should touch me,
an Indignation that he should offer
me such Insult. He must have read
■ II tills in my eyes, for he made but
the one move, and I flung his hand
aside as easily as though It had been
that of a child. I was angry, so that
my lips trembled, and my face grew
white, yet It was not the auger that
"Enough, toottsieur—go!" I said, and
pointed to where the fires reddened
the darkness. "Do not dare speak to
tne again this night"
. An instant he hesitated, trying to
muster Courage, but the bully In him
failed, and with an oath, he turned
away and vanished. It was nearly
dark then, and I sat down on a
blanket at the entrance, and waited,
watching the figures between me and
the rlyer. I did not think he would
come again, but I did not know; it
would be safer If I could have word
with Chevet. A soldier brought me
food, and when he returned for the
tins I made him promise to seek my
uncle and send him to me.
My only faith in Hugo Chevet rested
in his natural resentment of Casslon's
treachery relative to my father's for-
tune. He would feel that he had been
cheated, deceived, deprived of his
rightful share of the spoils.
I had been alone for an hour, al-
ready convinced that the soldier had
failed to deliver my message, when
my uncle finally emerged from the
shadows, and announced his presence.
He appeared a huge, shapeless figure,
hiR very masslveness yielding me a
feeling of protection, and I arose and
Joined him. His greeting proved the
unbappiness of his mind.
"So you sent for me—why? What
has happened between you and Cas-
"No more than occurred between us
yonder in Quebec, when I informed
)o you blame
me now that you understand his pur-
pose in this marriage?"
"How know you the truth of all
you have said?" he asked. "Where
learned you of this wealth?"
"By overhearing conversation while
hidden behind the curtain In Iji
Harre s office. He spoke freely with
his aide, and Inter with Casslon. It
was my discovery there which led to
the forced marriage, and our being
sent with this expedition."
"You heard alone?"
"So they thought, and naturally be-
lieved marriage would prevent my
ever bearing witness against them.
But I was not alone."
"Mon dleu! Another heard?"
"Yes, the Sieur d'Artigny."
Chevet grasped my arm, and In the
glare of the fire I could see Ills ex-
citement pictured In his face.
"Who? That lad? You were In
hiding there together? And did he
realize what was said?"
"That 1 do not know," I answered,,
"for we have exchanged no word
since. When my presence was dis-
covered D'Artigny escaped unseen
'through the open window. I need to
meet him again that these matters
may be explained, nnd that I may
learn Just what he overheard. It was
to enlist your aid that I sent for you."
"To bring the lad here?"
"No; that could not be done with-
out arousing the suspicion of Casslon,
The two are already on the verge of
quarrel. You must find some way of
drawing the cominlssalre aside—not
tonight, for there Is plenty of time
before us, and I am sure we are being
watched now—and that will afford me
"But why may I not speak him?"
"You!" I laughed. "He would be
likely to talk with you. A sweet mes-
sage you sent him In Quebec."
"I was drunk, and Cassiou asked it
"I thought as much; the coward
makes you pull his chestnuts from the
fire. Do you give me the pledge?"
"Ay! although 'tis not my way to
play sweet, when I should enjoy to
wring the fellow's neck. What was
it La Barre said?"
"That Just before he died my fa-
ther's property was restored to him
by the king, but the royal order was
never recorded. It exists, but where I
do not know, nor do I know as yet
for what purpose it was concealed. My
marriage to Casslon must have been
an afterthought, for he is but a crea-
ture of La Barre's. It is through him
the greater villains seek control; but,
no doubt, he was a willing tool enough,
and expects his share."
"Why not let me choke the truth
out of him then? Bah! it would be
"For two reasons," I said earnestly.
"First, I doubt If he knows the true
conspiracy, or can lay hands on the
king's restoration. Without that we
have no proof of fraud. And second,
coward though he may be, his very
fear might yield him courage. No.
Uncle Chevet, we must wait nnd learn
these facts through other means than
force. 'Tis back in Quebec, not in this
wilderness, we will find the needed
proofs. What I ask of you Is, pretend
to know nothing; do not permit Cas-
siou to suspicion that I have confided
In you. We must encourage him to
talk by saying nothing which will put
him on guard."
"You—you will try, as his wife, to
win confession?"* he asked finally,
grasping vaguely the one thought oc-
curring to him.
"No; there Is a better way. I de-
spise the man; I cannot bear that he
touch me. .More than that, If I read
him aright, once I yield and confess
myself his property, he will lose all

lady killer; 'tis his boast. The man
has never been in love with me; it
was not love, but a desire to possess
my fortune, which led to his proposal
of marriage. Now I shall make hlin

woman Into whose face he will look
until we return to Quebec. I am not
vain, yet I am not altogether III to
look upon, nor shall I permit the hard-
ships of this Journey to nffect my at-
tractiveness. I shall fight him with
his own weapons, and win. He will
beg and threaten me, and I shall
laugh. He will love me and I shall
mock. There will be Jealousy between
him and D'Artigny, and to win my
favor he will confess all tbnt he
knows. Tonight he sulks somewhere
yonder, already beginning to doubt
his power to control me."

his mind, yet his great hand held forth
