"1 know," she said gsntly.

Ho closed bis eyes to abut out thn

He opened his eyes, shuddering.
"It's good-by now,1' he faltered.
"Not ystl" her voice rang heslile
blm, vibrant. "Look up tbere along

He lifted his gate . . .
Two men were running along (ho
cliff and the men In ths lead wag
Alan. Hut bis lead waa very scunt,
snd the man who pursued wus one of
Judith's, and stuck to thu trail llku a
blood bound freeh from the leash.
And now the water was at his lips;
Barcua could no more speak without
Of a eudden he groaned In his beart)
though there was no passable way
down the cliff, still the sight of hit
friend alive and unharmed had StOOght
wltb It a thrill of hope; uow that bono

to his knees.
Before he could rise tho Bihar wan

Yet, to hie amaiement, he saw ono
man break from tbe other's embrace

Willi a violent effort Hurcus lifted
ble mouth above water and shrieked:
"Alan I Alan I Help I Here at the
end of the point in the water help!"
A precious minute was lost before
Alan discovered their two heads, so
barely above that swiftly rising Bend

And as this bappsned tho luet blood

Two minutes later the lifeboat wus
afloat, and Mr. Harcus, already recov

of the motor, stimulated to supremo
exertion by tbo sight of a party, lod by
Judith, racing madly down thu heacb.
But It was not until well out from

Then Mr. Harcus straightened up
from bla assiduous attentions to iin
