Pr***ntly, ii the dark gathered
about ua. tha candle* were lighted, and
tfcslr glow shut out the world. To
my relief tha three women carried the
talk aloae, leaving me to my own
(houghta of Halen and mjr plana for
restoring her to her aunt with no

Had had Inspired I had so completely
yielded myself to this undercurrent of
reflection that I waa stsrtlcd to find
Mlaa Pat with the coffee service before
"Larry, you are dreaming How can
I remember whether you take sugar?"
Blatar Margaret's eyes were upon
aa reproachfully for my Insttsntlo*,
•ad my heart beats quickened aa eight

Kngly through the quiet air. I had
'-railed my cup when f waa
Martlad by a question from Mlaa Pat
—a request innocent enough and
■pokan. It aaamed, utterly without In

Blatar Margaret flashed a glance

"Certainly, Aunt Pat"—and ahe
allpped tha ring from her finger,
passed it acreaa the table, and folded
her handa qaletly upon the white
aloth. She did net look at me. but I
aaw her breath come and go quickly.
If tha rlnga were not the aame then
wa ware undone. Thla thought gripped
the three of «a, and I heard my cup
heating a tattoo on the edge of my
aaucar la tha tenae silence, while Mlaa
Pat bent cloae to the candle before- her
and atudled the ring, turning It over
alawly. Roaallnd half opened her Hps
to apeak, but Hlnter Margaret's snowy
hand claapad the girl's Angers The
little circlet of gold with Ita beautiful
green atone had been to me one of the
convincing Items of the remarkable re-
aemblance between the couains: but

Mlaa Pat put down the ring abruptly,
and looked at Rosalind and then
■ailed qulnlcally at me
"You are a clever boy. !,arry."
Than, turning to Rosalind. Mlaa Pat
remarked, with tha most casual air
"Halen pronounces either with tha

though by prearranged signal, far
•croaa tha water, against the dark
abadown o( the laka'a remoter abore, a
rocket s apent ball broke and flung its
atars agalnat the nlgbt.
I apoke no word, but leaped over the
atone balustrade and ran to the boat-
house wbere Oillesple waited
"With My Hands."
Oillesple was smoking hla pipe on
the boathoiixe steps lie had come

launch, which tossed placidly beslda
mine. Ijlma stepped forward prompt-
ly with a lantern as I ran out upon the
planking of the pier.
"Jump Into my launch, Gllleaple, and
be In a hurry!" and to my relief he
obeyed without bis usual parley. Ijlma
caat ua off. the engine sputtered a mo-
ment. and then the launch got away.
I bade Ollleaple steer, and when wa
were free of tha pier told htm to head
for the Tippecanoe.
The handful of atara that had bright-
ened against the sky had been a real
shock, and I accused myself In severe
terms for having left Arthur Holbrook
alone As we swept Into the open
Glenarm House stood forth from the
encircling wood, marked by the bright
lights of the terrace wbere Mlsa Pat
had, with so much composure and In
so few words, made comedy of my at-
tempt to shield Helen. In throwing
off my coat my hand touched the en-
velope containing the forged notes
which I had thrust Into my pocket be-
fore dinner, and the contact sobered
me; there waa still a chance for mo to
be of uue. But at tha thought of what
might be occurring at the houaeboat
on the Tippecanoe I forced the
launch'a speed to the limit. Oillesple
still maintained alienee, grimly
clenching his empty pipe. Ha now
roused himself and bawled at ma:
"Did you ever meet tha coronar af
"No!" I ahouted.
"Wall, you will—coming down! Tou
will blow up In about three minutes."
1 did not slow down until we reached
Rattla Orchard, wbere It waa necea-
aary to feel our way across tha abal-
low channel. Hera I abut off the pow-
er and paddled with an oar.
Wa were soon creeping along tha
margin of the second lake seeking tha
creak, wboaa intake quickly lay bold
"We'll land Juat Inside, on tha west
bank. Oillesple." A moment later wa
Jumped out and aecured the launch I
wrapped our lantern In Oillesple'a
coat, and ran up the bank to tha path
At the top I turned and spoke to him
"You'll have to trust me. I don't
know what may be happening here,
but aurely our intereata are tha aame
He caught me roughly by the ara.
"If this means any Injury to
"No! It la for her!" And ha followed
silently at my heels toward Red Oate
The volcea of two men In load de
bata rang out aharply upon ua through
the open wlndowa of tha house-boat
as we crept down upon the deck. Then
followed the sound of blows, and the
rattle of furniture knocked about, and
as we reached the door a lamp fell
with a craah and tha place was dark
We seemed to strike matches at the
same Instant, and as they biased upon
their sticks wa looked down upon Ar-
thur Holbrook. who lay sprawling with
bis aruts oulflunx aa the floor, and
over hlra stood his brother with haads
clenched, his fare twitching
"1 have killed him—I have killed
him!" he muttered several times In a
luw whisper. "I hsd to do IL There
wa* no other way."
My blood wont cold at the thought
that e were too Iste Oillesple was
fumbling about, striking matches, and
I wss suaiewhst reassured by the
aouud of my own voice aa 1 called
"There are candles at tha side-
make a light, Oillesple."
And soon we were taking account
of ona another In tha soft candle-
"I muat go," aald Henry huaktly,
looking stupidly down upon hla broth-
er, who lay quit* still, his head reating
on his arm.
"You will stay," I said: and t stood
beelde him while Ollleaple filled a
pall at the creek and laved Arthur's
wrlats and temples with cool water.
We worked a quarter of an hour be-
fore he gave any signs of life; but
when he opened his eyes Henry flung
himself down In a chair and mopped
"He is not dead," be said, grinning
"Where la Helen?" I demanded.
"She's safe," he replied cunningly,
nodding hla head "I suppose Pat has
sent you to take her back. Sbe may
go, If you have brought my money "
Cunning and greed, and the marka of
drink had made his face repulsive.
Oillesple got Arthur to his feet a mo-
ment later, and I gave him brandy
from a flask la the cupboard. His
brother's reatoratloa aeemed now to
"It was a mere love-tap. You're
tougher than you look. Arthur. It's
the simple life down hera In the woods
My own nervea are all gone" Ha
turned to me with the air of domlnat
Ing the situation "I'm glad you've
come, you and our friend of button
fame. Rivals, gentlemen? A friendly
rivalry for my daughter's hand flat-
ters the house of Holbrook. Between
ourselves I favor you. Mr. Donovan,
the button-making business 1* profit-
able, but damned vulgar. Now,
"That will do!"—and I clapped my
band on hla shoulder roughly. "I
have business with you. Your slater
la ready to aettle with you; but ahe
wishes to see Arthur Brst."
"No—no! She must not see him!"
He leaped forward and caught hold of
me. "She must not see him!"—and
his cowardly tear angered me anew.
"You will do, Mr. Holbrook, very
much as I tell you In this matter. I
Intend that your sister shall see her
brother Arthur to nlgbt, and time flies
This last play of yours, this flimsy trick
of kidnaping, waa aprung at a very un-
fortunate moment. It has delayed tha
settlement and done a grave Injury to
"Helen would have It; It waa bar
"If you speak of your daughter
again In eurh a way I will break your
neck and throw you Into the creek!"
He stared a moment, thea laughed
"So yeu are the one—are yoa? I
really thought It waa Button*."
"1 an the one, Mr. Holbrook. And
now I am going te take your brother
to your sister. She baa aaked for
him. and she Is waltlog "
Arthur Holbrook came gravely to-
ward ua. and I have never been so
struck with pity for a man as I was
for him There was a red circle on
his brow wbere Henry'a knuckles had
cut, but his eyes showed no anger,
they were even kind with the tender
nesa that lira In the eyea of women
who have suffered lie advanced a
atep nearer hla brother aud spoke
slowly and distinctly.
"You have nothing te fear. Hoary.
I shall tell her nothing."
"Hut"—Henry glanced uneaally from
Oillesple to me—"Oillesple'a note*.
They are here among you somewhere.
You shall not give them to Pat. If
"If she knew you would not get ft
cent," I said, wishing him to knew
that I knew.
He whirled upon me hotly.
"You tricked Helen to gat them, and
now, by God! I want them! I want
them!" And he struck at me eraally.
I knocked hla arm away, but he Sung
himself upon me, claaplng me with
bis arms. I caught his wrlsta and held
him for a moment. I wished te he
done with him and off to Glenarm wltfc
Arthur; and be wasted time.
"I have that packet you aent Helen
to get—I have It—still unopened! Your
secret Is aa safe with me, Mr. Hol-
brook, as that other secret of yours
with your Italian body-guard."
His face went white, then gray, and
he would have fallen if I had not kept
hold of him.
I was beside myself with rage and
Impatient that time must be wasted
on him. I did not hear steps on the
deck, or Gillespie's quick warning, and
I had begun again, atill holding Henry
Holbrook close to me with one hand.
"We eipect to deceive your slater—
we will lie to her—lie to her—11* a
"For Ood's sake, stop!" cried Arthur
Holbrook, clutching my arm.
I flung round and faced Miss Pat
and Rosalind. They stood for a mo-
ment in the doorway: then Miss Pat
advanced slowly toward ua where we
formed a little aeml-clrcle, and aa X
dropped Henry'a wrlsta the brothers
stood aide by aide. Arthur took a atap
forward, half murmuring his sister's
name; then he drew back and waited,
bis head bowed, his hands thrust Inte
the side pocketa of hla coat. In the
dead quiet I heard the babbl* of th*
creek outalde, and wh*n Mias Pat
spok* her voice seemed to steal el
and mingle with th* subdued muraur
of th* stream.
