The bishop turned to Andrea.

"I am quite indifferent as to

said, "Well, my dear, that settles It-
settles it finally, In fact, that I can't
help but perceive that you are both
equally In histe to repent at leisure."
He arose with a resigned sigh. "Five
minutes are soon up," he said to Tre-
vor. "Will you agree to take time out
while I talk to my associates?"
"Most certainly," answered Trevor
gravely and opened the door for his
In ten minutes the associates were
persuaded; in half an hour, with the
assistance of the diamond magnate's
engagement ring, Andrea and Trevor
were made man and wife according to
the ancient usage of the Church of
England; and just Ave minutes after
that. Bathtub announced dinner. It
was high time, for in spite of the toast
that she had had with her tea, Andrea
was faint nnd pale with hunger. Noth-
ing short of the stimulus In the ex-
citement of being married for the very
first time In her life could have saved
her from collapse.
That was a great and merry dinner.
The toasts that were drunk to the
bride were many, some hearty, some
| witty; but the one that stood out
above all others was that In which she
| pledged herself. She stood, glass in
bond, and looked down at the kindly,
■ encouraging faces of the four men.
"This, the swan-song of the Honor-
able Andrea Pellor," she said In a voice
, that stsrted a bit gaspingly but soon
j steadied to a clear flow, "who wor-
| shlped false gods flippantly during
twenty-five years of her life, who trav-
! eled blindfolded through s beautiful

I%e7 were all early to bed. the word
having gone out to break camp at
dawn for safari. The. Mahoo and his
companions were northwsra hound,
Andrea and her man headed for the
south and the eoast. Ia the cold mist
of the morning they parted with tight
handclasps and earnestly murmured
Incidents, following rapidly one after
the other, kept Andrea's mind off the
coming encounter with her old world
until she was actually on Its verge,
j Late one afternoon they came upon
the bay and Trevor waited expectantly
for her to recognise the scene of her
ravishment. He was disappointed, for
the thin. Insignificant strip of yellow
sund tucked under the red cliff dlmln-
! ished by distance to the proportion of
a railway embankment, meant nothing
to her Inexperienced eyes.
At last he pointed It out to her. "Be-
hold," he said, "the beginning and the
end of all things."
"Why," exclaimed Andrea. "Ia It
really the beach—our bench? How It's
"It has," said Trevor solemnly. "The
I erosion on this bit of coast is a foot
| for every hundred years. We'd better j
hurry If we want to mnke a landing." I
He chartered two sailing boats from 1
a Greek fisherman and in an-hour the 1
beach had broadened, the cliff had
risen to almost Imposing heights; |
while they were still well off the shore
they shot Into Its shadow. The boat- j
man chose a landing at the foot of the
Cliff road, a quarter of a mile away
from the steep path by which Andrea j
had made her descent. As the safari :
began to form on the beach Trevor
turned to Andrea. "We're going to
your old hotel, you know. It's really J
; the only one. If yoft prefer, I can send
for a motor-car for you and myself;
but we'd have to wait half an hour."
Andrea caught her breath as she
realized that it was only minutes
before she would be In collision with
a world. Her eyes ran down the line
of their marching column already on
the edge of an Incongruous setting, but
still impressing with that subtle digni-
ty which the frpe and half-naked black
takes with him everywhere and which
' is born of his absolute indifference to
standards not his own.
"Let us go down at the head of our I
men," she answered. (
"You are right," said Trevor,
pleased at her shrewd judgment. "We '
i mortals," he added, "don't always rec- !
, ognlze the Importsnce of fighting sn
; atmosphere with an atmosphere. To
go in as cock of our own walk Is a
thousand times better than a motor-
car and the back door."
Andrea nodded. 4>I felt It but I could
' not put It In words like that."
j As Trevor, the white head of a
quarter-mlle-long and (listening black
I serpent of humanity, swung lp be-
i tween the gateposts of the hotel's Im-
posing portals, the ever-opportune
Marguerite stretched his neck, raised
, his barrel-bead and brayed. Abov*
that raucous cry sounded the sponta-
neous snd uncontrollable peal of An-
drea's silver laughter.
The groups of men and women—
all but one—on the hotel veranda stop-
ped in their various occupations as
though paralyzed; drinks paused half-
way to thirsty lips, cigarettes burned
unconscious fingers, knitting needles
poised Instantaneously—all but one
pair. The manipulator of the excep-
tion was a dear but very proper old
lady wearing a cap of filmy lace on
her plentiful white hair and enough
filmy lace on her person to make the
porch chair, In which she sat, look
, like a stall at a Red Cross bazaar.
She was knitting a vast khaki-colored
sweater and at the sound of Andrea's
laughter she gave no sign beyond purs-
ing her withered lips while she meth-
odically finished off the stitch upon
which she had been engaged.
That done, she raised a pair of
beady black eyes so wonderfully allv*
that It seemed Impossible they be-
longed to her wrinkled face and flash-
ed one look at Andrea and one at Tre-
! vor. "Well, my dear," ahe said calmly,
presumably to the former, "It's a re-
lief to have you back apparently allv*
No sooner were the words out of
her mouth than sire was swept Into
Andrea's Impetuous embrace. "Oh,
Aunty Owen! Oh, you old dear!"
The lady defended herself with con-
siderable energy and was heard to
grumble that even kissing had de-
generated Into a rough pastime. Hav-
ing rescued herself from Andrea's
' arms, she said, "No* that that Is over

Andrea glanced at Trevor and lean-
ed over to whisper Imploringly In her
"Your husband?" enunciated th*
old lady clearly. "Well, that's a relief,
too; but I prefer to meet him else-
where and after you have presented
documentary evidence. By the way,"
she added with ominous emphasis as
she a-sumed her knitting, "Harry la
i "I should say I an," exclaimed a
youth In the trim uniform of the fly-
ing Corps, as he stepped out from th*
hotel door. "Hello, Sister Andy." Then
his eyes fell on Trevor. A slow Mil*
of hsppy welcome spread over his
face. "Well, ru be d 1" he exclaim-
ed fervently. "D* yon know,- Trevor,
I've been saying from the first "Cher-
ches the flying-machine.' Come In and
let nw watch you have a drink."
When he bad washed and otherwise
attempted to freshen his perspiring
person he sent out a cell for a family
conference. It took place In the Tre-
vors' sitting room. Harry was there
resentatlve of the house of Pellor
vor and his bride. The sole male rep-
presentative of the house of Pellor
opened the proceedings with the fol-
lowing speech: "Hammar," he said,
"on the part of my sister i wish to
offer you an unqualified apology. It
seems that she was—er—suddenly car-
ried away by un Impulse In conjuctlon
with a flying machine, hut you will be
glad to Know that Trevor here has—
er—has played the man all through
and you are permanently relieved
from any further responsibility In the
matter. I don't think there's another
bully thing to say beyond repeating
the apology due you from my entire
"Not a thing to say, you young syco-
phant of a whipper-snapper!" thunder-
ed the red-faced magnate. "Do you
think I came down here to listen to
your maiden speech, accept a dirty
apology and get out with my tall be-
tween my legs? Well, I didn't, I came
down here to show this Interloping
vagabond of a scavenger where he
and his—wife—don't get off."
A gleam crept Into Trevor's eyes,
the same gleam that had shone there
when he hud shot MacCloster, but It
turned into his slow assuring smile
as his gaze met that of Andrea and
took note of her alarm. He remember-
ed that only ten minutes before he had
promised on the honor of a lover to
be seen only and not heard.
"Aren't you a bit late for that?"
asked Harry, unperturbed. "They seem
to be running before the wind already
and with a fair lead." He lit a ciga-
rette nnd snapped the dead match
through the open doorway.
"You think so, do you?" said the
magnate, his eyes snapping malignant-
ly. "You've probably never heard of
