I B Denver with all the ulr of a
A martyr, lie hud traveled
pretty much nil over the world, nnd In
wus not without resources, but the
prospect of a 2.5(10 mile Journey alum
Ulled hlui with dismay. The country
he knew; tho wenery had long since
lost Its attractions for him. And ao II
not that be gloomily motioned the
porter to hl boxes und mounted the
Hteps with weariness.
As It hunpoueu, Mr. Orenfall Iorry
did Dot have a dull moment after tin
train startT'd. Ho stumbled on a figure
that leuned toward the window in the
dark passageway. With reluctant civil
ity he apologized. A lady stood up to let
him pass, and for an Instant In tho half
light their eyes met, and that Is why
- tho mlka rushed by with Incredible
Mr. Lorry had been dawdling away
tho mouths In Mexico nnd California.
For years bo had felt, together with
many other people, that a sea voyage
was the essential beginning of every
Journey. Ho had started round the
world soon after leaving Cambridge;
be had flhed through Norway and
bunted In India, and shot everything
from grouse ou tho Scottish moors to
the rapids above Assouan. Ho had
run In and out of countless towns aud
countries on the coust of Kouth Amer
ica. He had done ltussla and the
IChoue vulley and Ilrlttuny and Damas
cus. Ho bad seen them all, but not
until then did Itoccur to him that there
might be something of interest nearer
houie. Trueftie bad thought of Joining
some Englishmen on a hunting tour In
the Rockies, but that had fallen
through. When the Idea of Mexico
did occur to him, bo gave orders to
pack bis things, purchased Intermina
ble green tickets, dined unusually well
at his club and was off In no time to
tho unknown west.
There was a theory In bis family
that it would have been a decenter
thing for him to stop running about
and settle down to work. Uut his
thoughtful father had given hi in a
wealthy mother, and ns earning a liv
ing was not a necessity bo failed to
see why It was a duty. "Work Is be
coming to some men," bo once declared,
"like whiskers or red ties, but It does
not follow that nil meu can stand It."
After that the family found hlui "hope
less," and tho argument dropped.
Ho was Just under thirty years, as
good looklug as most men, with no one
dependent upon hlui nnd an Income
that bad withstood both the Mutant
Doree and a dahabeah on the Nile.
Ho never tired of seeing things and
peoples and places. "There's game to
be found anywhere," he said, "only It's
sometimes out of season. If I had my
way uud millions I should run a
newspaper. Then ull tho cxcltemenls
would comb to me. As It Is, I'm poor,
and ao I have to go all over the world
This agreeablo theory of lift! had
worked well. Ho was a littlo bored at
times, not becutme ho hod Been too
much, but because there were not more
things left to see. Ho had managed
somehow to keep bis enthusiasms
through everything, and they made
II fo worth living. Ho felt, too, a cer
tain elation, like a spirited horse, at
turning toward borne, hut Washington
bad not much to offer hlui, nnd tho
thrill did uot last. His big bag uud
his butbox, pasted over with foolish
IiiIh'Is from continental hotels, were
piled In the corner of his compartment,
and he settled back In his seat with a
pleasurable sense of expectancy. Tho
presence In thu next room of a very
smart appearing young woman was
prominent In bis consciousness. It guve
hlui au uneasiness which was the be
ginning of delight, lie hail seen her
for only a second In tho passageway,
but thut second had made hlui hold
himself a little stralghter. "Why Is
It," bo wouilered, "that some girls
make you stand like a footman the mo
ment you see theiuV" (ireufall had
been In lovo too many times to think of
marriage. His habit of 111 i ml was hi 1 II
general, and ho classlllcd women broad
ly. At the buuiu time he hud a feeling
that In this case generalities did out
apply well. There was something about
the girl thut mailo lilm hesitate at la
beling her "Class A or 11 or Z." What
It was bo did not know, but unaccount
ably sho Ulled hlui with tin affected
formality. He felt like bowing to her
with a grand air and much dignity.
And yet ho realized that his successes
bad come from coiitldcnce.
At luncheon be saw her In the din
ing car. Her eoiiiaiilous were elderly
ierous, presumably her parents. They
talked mostly In Trench, occasionally
Using a Herman word or phrase. Tho
old gentleman was stately and austere,
with an air of deference to the young
iwoman which tirenfall did uot under
stand. His uppcuruueo was very strik
ing, his face pale and heavily lined,
mustache aud Imperial gray, tlio eye
brows large nnd bushy nnd the Jaw

Lorry watched the trio with great
Interest. Twlco during luncheon the
young woman glanced toward hlui
carelessly and left an uunoylng Impres
sion that she had not seen hlui. As
they left the table und passed into the
observation car be stared ut her with
gome defiance. Hut she wtis smiling,
and her dimples showed, and (ireufall
was ashamed. Tor Rome moments he
eat gazing from the car window, for
getting his luncheon, dreaming.
When bo got back to bis comport

Immediately, und the new possessor

fall wus down at the station platform
at once, looking over a great stuck of
game. As he left the cur he met I'nclc
Caspar, who Was hurrying toward his
niece's section. A few moments later
she came down the steps, followed by
the dlgullled old gentleman. Crenfall
tingled with a strange delight u she
moved quite close to bis side In her
desire to see. Unco be glanced at her
face. There was a pretty look of fear
In her eyes ns she surveyed the mis
sive bears und the stark, si ill ante

away with her uncle.
(ironfall was smoking his cigarette
und vigorously Jingling the coins In bis
pocket when the train pulled out. Then
he swung on the car steps uud found
himself at her feet. She was standing
ut tho top, when; she had lingered u
moment. There wus an expression of
anxiety In her eyes ns be looked up
Into them, followed Instantly by one of
relief. Then she passed Into the car.
Doubtless she would have been as see
llcltous hud he boon the porter or the
lirakeiiinu, he reasoned, but that she
bad noticed blm at all pleased hlui. j
At Abilene be bought the Kansas
City newspapers. After breakfast ho
found a seat III the observation car aud
settled himself to read. Presently
some one took a sent behind him. Ho
did not look back, but unconcernedly '
cast his eyes upon tho broud mirror
In the opposite car wall. Instantly he
forgot Ills paper. She was sitting with- j
ill five feet of hlui, a hook In her lap,
her gaze bent hrlelly on the Hitting
buildings outside. He studied the re-;
flection furtively until she took up the
book uud began to read.
The first page of his paper was fairly .
nllve with fresh nnd important dis
patches, chiefly foreign. At length, aft- j
er allowing himself to become really
Interested In a Paris dispatch of some i
international conseipieiice, he tiirucii,'
bis eyes again to the mirror. She was j
leaning slightly forward, holding tin? j
open Isiok In her lap, hut reading, with
straining eyes, an article In the pusr I
He calmly turnisl to the next page
und looked leisurely over It. Another
glance, quickly taken, showed to blm
a disappointed frown ou the pretty face
and a reluctant resumption of novel
rending. A few moments Inter he
turned hack to the Ikst puge, holding
tho paper In such n position thut she
could not see ami, full of curiosity,
read every line of the foreign news,
wondering what had Interested her.
Under ordinary circumstances Lorry
would huo offered bcr the puper and
thought not 1 1 1 Iii4 more of It. With her,
however, there was an air thut luailu
him hesitate. He felt strangely awk
ward and Inexperienced beside her.
Precedents did not seem to count. He
arose, tossed the paper over the buck
of the chnlr, as If casting It aside for
ever, and strolled to the opposite win
dow and looked out for a few moments,
Jingling his coins carelessly. The Jin
gle of the piece suggested something
else to lit in. Ills paper still hung In
vitingly up-thlc down, us ho had left it,
on the chair, ami the I nly wus poring
over her novel. As he passed her be
drew his right hand from his puckct,
and n piece of money dropped to the
llisir at her feet. Then L. mm an em
barrassed search fur the coin In the
wrong direction, of course. He knew
precisely where It hail rolled, hut pur
posely looked under the seats on the
other side- of the car. She drew her
skirts aside and assisted in the search.
Tour different times he saw the little
piece of money, but did not pick It lip.
Finally, laughing awkwardly, he began
to search on her side of (he cur, where
upon she rose und guve hlui more room.
She became lulereslisl In the search

with eager eyes. Their bends were
very close together more than once.
At Inst she uncivil au exclamation, and
her hand went to the floor In triumph.
'I'hcy arose together. Hushed and smil

"1 have It!" she said guyly, II dell
clous foreign tinge to the words.
"I thank you" he began, holding
out his hand as If In a drcuui of ecsta
sy, hut her eyes hud fallen momentari
ly on the object of their search.
"till!" she exclaimed, the prettiest
surprise In the world coming into her
face. It was u coin from her faraway

If she even heard him say:

as be went to Ills section dizzily he
thought of tbe good fortune that bad

himself why It hud not occurred to blru
to make the same advances In the pres
ent Instance. Koviehow she was dif
ferent. There wus that strange digni
ty, that pure beauty, that imperial
manner, ull combining to forbid tbe
faintest thought of familiarity. !
He took out the coin and leaned back
in his chair, wondering where It came
from. "In any case," he thought, "II
'II make a good pockctpleee, and some
day I'll llnd some Idiot who know
more about geography thun I do." Mr.
Irony's own Ideas of geography were
Jumbled and vague, us if ho had gut
them by studying the labels ou bli
hatbox. He knew the places he had
been to, and he recognized a new coun
try by the annoyances of the customs
bouse, hut beyond this bis Ignorance
was complete. The coin, so fur us be
knew, might have come from any one
of a hundred small principalities scat
tered about the continent.
Ih foro tho train reached Ht. Louis
bo in: le up his mind to change cars
there aud go to Washington. It ulso
occurred to blur that he might go on
to New York If the spell lasted. Dur
ing the day he telegraphed ahead for
ncciiiuiufiduthxis, and when the tiler ar
rived in St. Louis that evening he hur
riedly attended to the transferring nnd
reeliei klt.g of his baggage, bought n
new ticket and dined. At 8 he wus ill
the station, und ut 8:15 he passed her
III the aisle. She was standing in her
stateroom door, directing her maid.
He saw a look of surprise flit across
her face as be passed. He slept sound
ly that night and dreamed that be was
crossing the ocean with bcr.
At breakfast bo saw her, but If she
saw him It was when be was not look
ing ut her. Once be caught Undo Cas
par staring nt him through his mono
cle, which dropped Instantly from bis
eye In the manner that Is always self
explanatory. Ills spirits took a furi
ous hound with the realization that she
had deigned to honor him by recogni
tion. If only to call attention to biin
because he poHscssisl a certain coin.
(Mice tlie old gentleman asked hlui
the time of day and set bis watch ac
cording to the reply. In Uhlo the man
servant scowled ut blm Is'cuuse he In
voluntarily stared after his mistress as
she paced the platform while the train'
waited at a station. Again, In Uhlo,
they met In the vestibule, and he wus
compelled to step aside to allow her to '
pass. He did uot fed particularly Jil-
bllunt over this meeting. She did not :
even c hi nee at hlui.
Lorrv realized that his opportunities
wcre fast disappearing and that he did
not sis'iu to be uiiy nearer meeting her
Ulan when they started. He had hoped
to get Tiicle Caspar Into n conversa
tion and then use blm, but Uncle Cas
par was as distant as au Iceberg. "If
there should be a wreck," Crenfull
taught himself thinking, "then my
chance would come, but I don't see
bow Providence Is going to help me In
any other way."
Near the dose of the day, after they
left Cincinnati, the train began to wind
through the foothills of the Alio-
glianies. Itcllalro, Crnfton and other j
towns were left behind, and they were i
soon whirling up the steep mountain,
higher and higher, through tunnel aft
er tunnel, nearer and nearer to Wash
ington every minute. As they were
pulling out of n Utile mining town !
built on the mountain side a sudden
Jur stopped the train. There was some
little excitement and a scramble for
Information. Same part of the engine
was disabled, nnd it would be neees
sury to replace It before the "run"
Lorry strolled up the crowd of pas
sengers who were watching the engi
neer and Hroiiuin at work. A clear
luti-dcal voice, aim ist In his ear, star
tled him, for he knew to whom It be
loi! " I. She addressed the conductor,
who. 'inpatient and annoyed, stood lm
lueili itely behind hlui.
"How long niv wo to be delayed?"
she linked. Just two minutes before
this same conductor bad responded
most ungraciously to a simple question
Lorry had asked nnd bad gone so far
as to instruct another Inquisitive trav
eler to go to a w anner climate because
he persisted In asking for information
w hich could not be given except by a
clairvoyant. Hut now he auswerisl In
most utl'uhlc tones:
"We'll be here for thirty minutes at
leas', miss-perhaps longer."
She walked away after thanking
him. and Crenfull lisikod nt his watch.
(HT the main street of the town ran
little lanes lending to the mines be
low. They nil ended at the edge of a
stoop declivity. There was n drop of
utmost Its) feet straight Into the valley
below. Along the sides of this valley
were the eutriinces to the mines. Aliovc.

young ludy, curiously Interested In nil

from tho train and Its people, and she
hurried along, the fresh spring wind

Lorry stood ou the platform watch
lug her: then be lighted a cigarette uud
followed. He hud a vague feeling that
she ought not to be alone with all the
workmen. She started to come back
before he reached her. however, nnd he
turned imalti toward the station. Then
be heard a sudden whistle, and a min
ute later from the end of the street he
saw the train pulling out. Lorry hud

her face was the picture of despair.
