I didn't care what others
thought about me; but I did care what
you thought ; yet If you couldn't see
what I was up against because of your
affection for him, why—that was all
right too."
"No, It wasn't all right," she denied
almost fiercely, the flush flooding her
cheeks; a throbbing waa In her throat
which, for an Instant, stopped her.
“You should have told mo. Henry; or
—I should have been able to see."
"1 couldn't tell you—dear," he said
(he last word very distinctly, but so
lew (hat she could scarcely hear. "1

gone away as he haa and thia other
fellow come. 1 couldn't tell you when
you wanted to keep caring so much
for your Uncle Henny. and he was try­
ing to hurt me with you."
She bent toward him, her lipa part­
ed ; but now she did not speak. She
never had really known Henry until
this moment, she felt; she had thought
of him always as strong, almost bru­
tal, fighting down fiercely, merctloualy,
his opponents and welcoming contest
for the Joy of overwhelming others by
his own decisive strength and power
And she had been almost reeily to
marry that man for his strength and
dominance from those qualities; and
now she knew that he waa merciful
too indeed, more than merciful. In
the very contest where she had
thought of him as most selfish and re­
gardless of another, she had most
completely misapprehended.
"I ought to have seen I" she rebuked
herself to him. “Surely, I should have
seen that was It I"
“How could you see?" he defended
her. “He never showed to you the side

Constance leaned back, confused.
“He—Alan Conrad?" she questioned.
"He can't have dooe that. Henry I Uh.
he can't have meant that!"
“Maybe be didn't; 1 aald I couldn't
make out what he did mean," Spear­
man aald. "Things have come upon

might expect a boy to act who had

haven't had opportunity to tell your |
father these things yet; but I wanted
you to understand why Conrad will
hardly consider me a friend "
“I'll understand you now, Henry,"
she promised.
At half-paat three, Alan left the of­
fice. Hherrtll had told him an hour
earlier that Spearman had telephoned
be would not be able to get back for
a conference that afternoon; and Alan
was certain now that In Npearman'a
absence Rherrtll would do nothing
further with respect to Ills affairs.
Waa there no ope whom Alan conld
tell of hla encounter with Spearman
In Corvel's house, with probability of
receiving belief? Alan had not been
thinking directly of Constance Sher­
rill, aa he walked swiftly north to the
Drive; but she was, tn a way. present
In all hla thoughts. As he approached
the Rherrtll house, he saw standing at
the curb an open roadster with a liv­
eried chauffeur: he had seen that road­
ster, he recognised with a little start.
In front of the office building that
morning when Constance had taken
him downtown. He turned Into the
walk and rang the bell.
The servant who opened the dor r
knew him and seemed to accept hla
right of entry to the house, for he
drew back for Alan to enter. Alan
went Into the hall and waited for the
servant to follow. "la Mixa Rherrtll
In?" he asked.
•Til see, air." The man disap­
peared. Alan, waiting, did not hear
Constance's voice In reply to the an­
nouncement of the servant, hut Spear­
man's vigorous tones. The servsnt re­
turned. “Miss Rherrtll will see you In
s minute, sir.”
Through the wide doorway to the
drawing room, Alan could see the
smaller, portlered entrance to the
room beyond—Rherrlll'a atudy. The
curtains parted, and Constance and
Spearman came Into this Inner door­
way; they stood an Instant there In
talk. As Constance started away.
Rpearman suddenly drew her back to
him and kissed her. Alan's shoulder«
spontaneously Jerked back and hla
hands clenched; he Hid not look away
and, aa she approached, she became
aware that he had seen.
Rhe came te him, very quiet and
very flushed; then she was quite pale
as she asked him, “You wanted me?"
He was white as she, snd could not
speak at once. “You told me Inst night,
Miss Sherrill," he said, “that the last
thing that Mr. Corvet did—the last
that you know of—was to warn you
against one of your friends. Who was

She flitlficd uneasily. "You mustn't
attach any Importance to that; I didn't
mean you to. There waa no reason for
what Mr. Corvet said, except In Mr.
Corvet'a own mind. He had a quite
unrwMMMble animosity—"
"Against Mr. Spearman. you mean."

“Illa snlmuslty waa against Mr.

Thank you." Ila turned and, not
waiting for the man, let hlmaalf out.

He want swiftly around the block la
his own house and let blmttelf In at the
front door with tils key. The bouse
was warm; a shaded lamp on the table

“Dinner Is at seven," Wasaaquam
announced. “You want some change
about that?"
“No; seven to all right."
Alan went upstairs to the room next
to Corvet'a which he had appropriated
for hie uwn use the night before, and
found It now prepared for hla occu­
pancy. When he came down again to
the first floor, Wasaaquam was no-
where about, but be heard sounds In
the service rooms on the basement
floor. He went part way down the
service, stairs and saw the Indian in
the kitchen, preparing dinner. Wasaa-
quam had not heard his approach, and
Alan stood an Instant watching the
Indian’s tall, thin figure and the quick
movements of hla disproportionately
small well-shaped hands, almost like
a woman's; then he scuffed hla foot
upon the stair, and Wasaaquam turned
swiftly about

Alan asked.

“Why not?"

"Do you take orders from him, Ju-
"1 took that order, Alan.”
Alan hesitated. “Yon've been here
tn the house all day?”
“Yes. Alan."
Alan went back to the first floor and
into (be smaller library. The room
waa dark with tbe early winter dusk,
snd he Twitched on tbe light; then be
knelt and pulled out one of the draw­
ers he bad seen Spearman searching
through tbe night before, and carefully
examined the papers In It one by one,
but found them only ordinary papers.
He pulled the drawer completely out
and sounded the wall behind It and the
partitions on both sides but they ap­
peared solid. He put tbe drawer back
In and went on to examine tbe next
one, and, after that, the others. The
clocks In tbe house had been wound,
for presently the clock In the library
struck six, and auother In tbe hall
chimed slowly. An nour later, when
the clocks chimed again, Alan looked
up and saw Wassaquam’s small black
eye«, deep set In their large eye sock­
ets. fixed on him Intently through the
door. How long (lie Indian had been
there. Alan could not guess; he had
not heard hto step.
"What are you looking for, AlanF
the Indian asked.
Alan reflected a moment. “Mr. Sher­
rill thought that Mr. Corvet might
have left a record of some sort here
for me. Judah. Do you know of any­
thing like that?"
“No. That to what you are looking

“If he put things anywhere else,

Alan went to the lavatory on the
first floor and washed the dust from
hto hands and face; then he went Into
the dining room. Wasaaquam, having
served the dinner, took hto place be­

Tbe interne whistled softly and

The nurse nodded and moved off.
Thus It was that at a quarter to
five Constance Sherrill was awakened
by tbe knocking of one of the serv­
ants at her father's door. Her father
went down stairs to the telephone In­
strument where he might reply with­

the top of the stairs and waited. It
became plain to her at once that what­
ever bad happened bad been to Alan
“Yea. . . . Yes. . . . You are
giving him every possible care? . . .
At once.”
She ran part way down the stairs
and met her father as he came up.
He told her of the situation briefly.
“He was attacked on tbe street late
last night; he was unconscious when
they found him and took him to the
hospital, and has been unconscious
ever since. No one can say yet how
seriously he to Injured."
She waited in the hall while her
father dressed, after calling the
rage on tbe house telephone for
and ordering the motor. When be bad
gone, she returned anxiously to her
rooms; be bad promised to call her
after reaching the hospital and as soon
as he bad learned the particulars of
Alan's condition. It was ridiculous,
of course, to attach any responsibility
to her father or herself for what bad
happened to Alan—a street attack such
as might have happened to any one
—yet she felt that they were In part
responsible. They had let him go to

had been an attempted rubbery upon
the street, her lather had said. But
auppuse it had .,eeu suiueiliiag else
than rubbery.
She could not formulate more def­
initely this thought, but It perslMod;
she could not deny It entirely and
«bake it off.
To Alan Conrad, tn tbe tote after­
noon of that day, thia same thought
was coming far more definitely end far
more persistently. He had been awake
and sane since shortly sfter noonday.
The pain of a head wbteh ached throh-
