Caroline's departure was again in-
terrupted by the Inopportune re-en-
trance from the back hall of Mr. Ar-
releford, who was accompanied by two
aoldlera. whom he directed to remain
by the door. Aa he advanced rapidly
toward Mrs. Varney, Caroline stepped
aaide toward tha rear window.
"Is he—" began Arrelsford, turning
toward the window, and starting back
In surprise as he observed Caroline
for the ftrst time
"Yes, he Is there," answered the
"Oh, Mrs. Varney," cried Caroline,
Klaaed Hla Methsr Hurriedly.
"there's a heap of soldiers out in your
back yard here. You don't reckon
any thing's the matter, do you?"
The girl did not lower her voice,
and was greatly surprised at the im-
mediate order for silence which pro-
ceeded from Mr. Arrelsford, whose
presence she acknowledged with a
very cool, kidifferent bow.
"No, there is nothing the matter,
dear," said Mrs. Varney. "Martha,"
she said to the old servant who had
come In response to her ring: "I want
you to go home with Miss Mitford.
You must not go alone, dear. Good
"Thank you very much, Mrs. Var-
ney," answered Caroline. "Come Mar-
tha." As ahe turned, she hesitated.
"You don't reckon she oould go witlt
me somewhere else, do you?"
"Why, where else do you want to
go at this hour, my dear girl?" asked
"Just to—to the telegraph office,**
Mr. Arrelsford, who had been wait-
ing with Ill-concealed Impatience dur-
ing this dialogue, started violently.
"Now!" exclaimed Mrs. Varney tn
great aurprtse, not noticing file actions
of her lateat guest. "At this time of
"Yes," answered Caroline, "it la on
very important business. and —I—**
"Oh," returned Mrs. Varney, 'if
that Is the case, Martha must go with
"You know we haven't a single m
ant left at our house," Caroline said
In explanation of her request.
"I know," said Mrs. Varney, "and.
Martha, don't leave her for an in-
No'm," answered Martha. "AhTl
take ca' ob huh."
As soon as she had left the room,
passing between the two soldiers, Ar-
relsford took up the conversation. He
spoke quickly and In a sharp voice. He
was evidently greatly exoited.
"What la she going to do at the
telegraph office?" he asked.
"I have no Idea," answered the worn
"Haa she had any conversation with
him?" said Arrelsford, pointing to the
front of the house.
"They were talking together In this
room early this evening before yon
came the first time, but it lan't pos-
sible she could—"
"Anything la possible," snapped Ar-
relsford Impatiently. He was evident
ly determined to suspect everybody,
and leave no stone unturned to pre-
vent. the failure of his plans. "Cor-
poral," he cried, "have Eddinger fol-
low that girl. He must get to the tele-
graph office ss soon as she doea, and
don't let any dispatch she tries to send
get out before I see It. Let her g1v\*
it In, but hold it. Make no mistake
about tfcat. Get an order from the de-
partment for you to bring It to me.'1
As the corporal saluted and turned
away to give the order, Arrelsford
faced Mrs. Varney again. "Are they
both out there?"
"Yes," answered the woman. "Did
you bring the man from Libby pris
"I did, the guards hare him out in
the street on the other side of the
| house. When we get Thorne in here
alone I'll have him brought over to
that window and shoved into the

I lower door, opening upon the back
hall. You can get a good vleir of every
thing from there."
; "But if he seea meT*
"He won't see you if it is dark tn
the hall." He turned to the corporal
who had re-entered and resumed his
station. "Turn out those lights out
there," he said. "We can close these
curtains, can't we?"
"Certainly," said Mre. Varney, open-
ing the rear door and drawing the
heavy portieres, but leaving space be-
tween them so that anyone In the dark
hall could see through them but not
be seen from the room.
"I don't want too much light
here, either," saijJ Arrelaford As he
spoke he blew out^the candles In the
two candelabra which had been placed
on the different tables, and left the
large, long room but dimly Illuminated
by the candles In the sconces on the
Mrs. Varney watched him with fss
oinated awe. In spite of herself there
still lingered a hope that Arrelsford
might be mistaken. Thorne had en-
listed her Interest, and he might un-
der other ooadltlons have aroused he*
ible for dairy and chickens. See

ing against hope that he might yet
prove himself innocent, not ouly be-
cause of his personality but as welt be-
cause the thought that she might have
entertained a spy was repugnant to
her; and because of the honor of the
Dumont family, which was one of the
oldest and most Important ones in the
western hills of the Old Dominion.
Arrelsford meantime completed his
preparations by moving the couch
which Caroline Mitford had placed be-
fore the window back to the wall.
"Now, Mrs. Varney," he said, stejh
ping far back out of sight of the win-
dow, "will you open the curtains? Do
It casually, carelessly, please, so as
not to awaken any suspicion if you are
"But your soldiers, won't they—"
"They are all at t,he back of the
house. They came in the back way,
and the fleld in front is absolutely
clear, although I have men concealed
In the street to stop anyone who may
attempt to escape that way."
Mrs. Varney walked over to the
window and drew back the curtains.
She stood for a moment looking out
into the clear, peaceful quietness of a
soft spring night. The moon was flfll,
and being somewhat low shone
through the long windows and Into
the room, the candle light not being
bright enough to dim its radiance. Her
task being completed, she turned, and
once more the man who was In com-
mand pointed across the hall toward
the room on the other side.
"Are those women in thera yet?"
he asked peremptorily.
"W^here is the key?"
Mrs. Varney left the room and went
to the door.
"It Is on this side," she said.
"Will you lock it, please?"
The woman softly turned the key
in the lock, and returned to the draw-
ing room without a sound. As she
did so the noise of the opening of one
of the long French windows In the
front of the room attracted the atten-
tion of both of them. Edith Varney
entered the room nervously and
stepped forward. She began breath-
lessly, In a low, feverishly excited
Mra. Varney hurried toward her and
oaught her outstretched hand.
"I want to apeak to you," whispered
"We cant wait," said Arrelsford,
"You must." persisted the girl. She
turned to her mother again, "I can't
do it, I can't! Oh, let me go!"
"But, my dear," said her mother,
"you were the one who auggested
"But I waa sure then, and now—"
"Haa he confessed?" aaked Mrs.
"No, no," anawered the girl with a
glance of fear and apprehenaion to-
ward Arrelaford, who stood staring
menacingly at her elbow.
"Don't speak so loud," whlapered
the secret service agent.
"Edith," said her mother soothing-
u\ Dont Want Too Much Llflht In
ly, "what la it that haa changed you?"
She waited for an answer, but none
came. The girl's face had been very
pale, but it now flushed auddenly with
"Dear," said her mother, "you must
Edith motioned Mr. Arrelsford away.
He went with ill-concealed impatience
to the far side of the room and waited
nervously to give the signal, anxious
lest something should miscarry be-
cause of this unfortunate unwilling-
ness of the girl to play her part.
""What is It, dear?" whispered her
"Mamma," aaid Edith, she forced
the words out, "he—he—loves me."
"Impossible!" returned Mrs. Var-
ney, oontrolllng her voice ao that the
other occupant of the room could not
"Yes," faltered the girl, "and I—
some one else muat do it."
"You don't m**an," aaid Mrs. Var-
ney, "that you return—"
But Mr. Arrelsford's pstlence had
been stralued to the breaking point.
Ho did not know what interchange
was going on between the two women,
but It must be stopped. He came for-
ward resolutely. The girl saw hlfl
determination In hla face
"No, no," ahe whispered, "not that,
She shrank away from him as she
"But, Edith," said Mrs. Vsrney,
"more reaaon now than ever."
"I don't know what you are talking
about," said Mr. Arrelsford, "but we
must go on."
"But why—why are you doing this?"
asked Edith, pleading desperately.
"Because I please," snapped out the
secret service agent, and it was quite
evident that he waa pleased. Some
of his satisfaction was due to the fact
that he had by hla own efforta at last
auoommUI la uuearthin* a .deanerata
piot, ana naa tns lievida on tan plot-
ters. That he waa thereby serving his
country and demonstrating his fitness
for his position of responsibility and
trust also added to hta satisfaction,
but thia waa greatly enhanced by the
fact that Thorne waa hla rival, and he
could make a gueea that he was a sue
cessful rival In love aa well aa In
"You have never pleased before,"
persisted Edith. "Hundreds of aus-
picious cases have come up—hundreds
of men have been run down—but you
preferred to sit at your desk in the
war department, until—"
"Edith 1 Edith!" interposed her
"I can't dlsGuas that now," said Ar
"No, we will not discuss it. I will
have nothing more to do with the af-
"fou wftdV whispered Arrelsford
"Dont aay that," urged Mrs. Var-
"Nothing, nothing, at all," said
"At your own suggestion. Miss Var*
ney," persisted the secret service
agent vehemently, "I agreed to accept

lowing him to escape sltogether and

Edith looked from Arrelsford's set
face, with his bitter words, the truth
of which she waa too Just not to ac-
knowledge, ringing In her ears, to the
face of her mother. It was a sweet
face, full of sympathy and love, but It
was set In the same way aa the man's.
The patriotism of the woman was
aroused The kind of help that Edith
wanted In her mother's look she did
not find there.
"You musn't do this, Edith; you
must do your part," said Mrs. Varney.
The resolution of the girl gave way.
"He Is there," she faltered piteous-
ly, "he Is there at the further end of
the veranda. What more do you want
of me?" Her voice rose in spite of
her efforts to control herself.
"Call him to the room, and do it
naturally. If anyone else should do It
he would suspect something immedi-
ately and be on his guard."
"Very well," aaid the girl helplessly.
"I will call him."
She turned toward the window.
"Walt," said Arrelaford, "one thing
more. I want him to have this pa-
per." He handed Edith the communi-
cation which had been taken from
Jonas earlier In the evening.
"What am I to do with thlsT" asked
the girl, taking it.
"Give it to him, and tell him where
It came from. Tell him old Jonas got
it from a prisoner at Libby prison and
brought It to you."
"But why am I to do this?" asked
"Why not? If he Is Innocent, what's
the harm? If not. If he Is in the plot
and we can't catch him otherwise, the
message on the paper will send him
to the telegraph office tonight, and
that's where we want him."
"But I never promised that," said
the girl with obvious reluctance to do
anything not only that might tend to
harm the suspected, but that might
work to the furtherance of Arrels-
"Do you still believe him innocent?"
Bneered the man.
Edith lifted her head and for the
first time she looked Arrelsford full In
"I still believe him innocent," an-
swered the girl slowly and with delib-
"Then why are you afraid to give
him the paper?" asked Arrelsford, di-
rectly with cunning adroitness.
The girl, thus entrapped, clasped
the paper to her breaat, and turned
toward the window. Her mind was
made up, but it was not necessary for
her to call. Her ear, tuned to every
Bound he made, caught the noise of
bis footfall on the porch. She turned
her head and spoke to the other two.
"Captain Thorne is coming," she
whispered expressionleasly, "unless
you want to be seen, you had better
"Here, this way, Mrs. Varsey," said
Arrelsford, taking that lad> by the
arm and going down to the far end to
the door covered by the portieres.
The two disappeared, and it was
Impossible for a soul to see them in
the darkness of the hall, although they
could see clearly enough, even In the
dimly lighted drtrwlng room, every-
thing that would Lappen. Edith stood
as If rooted to the floor, the paper at ill
in her hand, when Thorne opened the
Bash which she had closed behind her
and entered In his /urn the window
through which she had come a short
time before. He stepped eagerly to-
"You were so long," he whispered,
'coming for me, that—" He stopped
abruptly and looked at her face, "Is
anything the matter?"
"You had been away such a long
time that I thought—"
"Only a few minutes."
"Only a few years." said the man
passionately His voice was low and
gently modulated, not because he had
anything to conceal but because of the
Boftnesss of |he moonlight and the few
candles dimly flickering upon the
walls of the great room, the look in
the girl's eyes, and the feeling in his
heart. A few minutes, the girl had said
—Ah, it was indeed a few years to
"If it was a few years to you," re-
turned the girl with a violent effort
At lightness, although her heart was
:orn to pieces with the emotions of
:he moment, "what a lot of time there
