was mountain climbing and in the

" 'But I don't need them here,' she

Against this clouding of hU senses
he felt himself struggling as if swim
ming in an empty space. He picked
np his hatchet and his bow and rose
to his feet He had not lost sound of
the mill wheel even when Tolnette's
sobbing had seemed to be at his side.
It was crying at him now, but before
he turned toward It his eyes rested
on Tonteur's wooden peg. It was half
cut off. a mark of grim humor on the
part of a butcher. The mill wheel
was forcing his attention to that fact,
"Look look look" It said, and then
repeated the old song, calling him an
He faced it in a flash of resentment,
not because of the wheel alone but on
account of what lay at his feet and
what he knew he would find nearer to
the walls of the manor. His mind
was hurling anathema at the wheel.
He wanted to tell it that it lied. In
this hush of death he wanted to cry
out that he was not of the murderous
breed who had sent the killers. Troof
was over there, in the valley which at
last was well named. His mother.
His father. His Cncle nepsibah. Not
one of them were dead by Its hand.
He hal been left alive by chance.
That was proof. The wheel was
wrong. It lied.
He looked at Tonteur again,
strengthening himself to go a little
farther and find Tolnette He knew
bow !t would be. Tolnette's young
body, even more pitiful than his moth
er's. He forced himself to turn toward
the smoldering walls. Tolnette dead!
His father might die, and Tonteur, and
ali the rest of the world but these
two, his mother and Tolnette, insep
arable In his soul forever, the vital
sparks which had kept his own heart
beating how could they die while be
lived? He advanced, pausing over one
of the slaves, a woman almost un
clothed. Inky black except the top of
her head, which was red where her
scalp was gone. In the crook of her
arm was her scalplfss Infant. White,
black, women, babies the loveliness
of girlhood it made no difference.
Jeems scanned the earth beyond her,
and where the smoke lay in a white
shroud he saw a small, slim figure
which he knew was Tolnette. Another
young body might have lain in the
same way, Us slenderness crumpled
In the same manner, a naked arm re
vealed dimly under its winding sheet
of smoke. But he knew this was

before his eyes again, and he put out
his hand to hold it back. Tolnette.
Only a few steps from him. Dead,
like bis mother.
Odd went ahead of him halfway to
the still form and stopped. He sensed
something Jeems could not see or feel
through the smoke mist which un
dulated before their eyes. Warning of
Impending danger confronted the dog,
and he tried to pass it to his master.
In that moment, a shot came from the
mill, and a flash of pain darted
through Jeems' arm. He was flung
backward and caught himself to hear
echoes of the explosion beating against
the forested hills and the wheel at
the top of the mill screaming at him.
He answered the shot by dropping
his bow and dashing toward Jhe mill.
Death might easily have met him at
the threshold, but nothing moved in
the vuultlike chamber ho had entered,
and there wus no sound in it except
that of his own breath and his racing
heart. Odd went to the flight of nar
row steps which led to the tower room
and told Jeems that what they sought
wag there. Jeems ran up, his hatchet
raised to strjke.
He must have been an unforgettable
and terrifying object as he appeared
above the floor into the light which
forced its way through the dusty glass
of three round windows over his head.

of the monster about him. Ho ha4
left some of his garments with his
mother and father, and his arms and
shoulders were bare. Char and smoke
and the stain of earth had disfigured
him. His face appeared to be painted

oaken planks from his wounded arm.
He was a Frankenstein irmly to kill,
dlshevelment and fury concealing his
youth, hli stature tnndo appalling by
his eagerness to leap at something
with the upraised hatchet.
If the hatchet had found a brain, it
would have been Tolnette's. She
faced him as he came, holding the
musket which she had fired through a
sltt in the wall as If she still pos
sessed faith In Its power to defend
her. Her eyes had in them a touch of
madness. Yet she was so straight and
tense, waiting for death, that she did
not seem to be wholly possessed by
fear or terror. Something unconquer
able was with her, the soul of Tonteur
himself struggling In her fragile breast
to make her unafraid to die and giving
to her an aspect of defiance. This
courage could not hide the marks of
her torture. Death hud miraculously
left her flesh untouched In passing, yet
she stood crucified In the mill room.
Expecting a savage, she recognized
Jeems. The musket fell from her
hands to the floor with a dull crash,
and she drew back as If retreating
from one whoso presence she dreaded
more than that of a Mohawk, until
her form pressed against the plled-up
bags of grain, and she wus like one at
bay. The cry for vengeance which
was on Jeems lips broko In a sobbing
breath when he saw her. He spoke

He had Gone Away Leaving Her
her name, and Tolnette made no re
sponse except that she drew herself
more closely to the sacks. Odd's toe
nails clicked on the wooden floor as
he went to her. This did not take
her eyes from Jeems. They were twin
fires flaming at him through a twilight
gloom. The deg touched her hand
with his warm tongue, and she
snatched it away.
She seemed to grow taller against
the gray dusk of the wall of grain.
"You English beast !"
It was not the mill wheel this time,
but Tolnette's voice, filled with the
madness and passion which blazed
from her eyes.
With a sudden movement she picked
up the musket and struck at him. It
It had been loaded, she would have
killed him. She continued to strike,
but Jeems was conscious only of the
words which came from her brokenly
as she spent her strength on him. He
had come with the English Indians to
destroy her people! He and his
mother had plotted It, and they were
alive while every one who belonged to
her was dead 1 The barrel of the gun
struck him across the eyes. It fell
against his wounded arm. It bruised
his body, Sobblngly, she kept repeat
ing that she wanted to kill him, and
cried out wildly for the power with
which to accomplish the act as he
stood before her like a man of stone.

She struck until the weight of the
musket exhausted her and she dropped
it. Then she snatched weakly at the
