Unlike the police chief of fiction und
the drama, he did not speak itroutul
the cigar, but carefully removed it, not
out of respect to his visitor, biit out ot
deference to a good cigar. Now he
leaned toward Boroday.
"Either," he said slowly, "It was
clever, or It wus necessary."
But the Russian had himself well In
hand. He only smiled.
_\ "It has occurred to me," the chief
went on, "that that little town has been
pretty busy lately. There was that
matter of the country club, you know,
and last Thursday night the parish
houss burned down."
"Tea," said Boroday, politely.
"And now something else has hap
pened and—" Suddenly the chief beat
his desk with his fist—"l am pretty
sick of It."
Under perfect control as he was at
critical moments, the Russian's hands
had a way of twitching. So now he
flicked the ash from his cigarette and
was politely Interested.
"What happened last night?" he In
quired. | k
"I think you know. If you don't,

Ward came back to consciousness In
the great four-poster bedstead In
which old Hilary Kingston had lain In
state. He felt very little puln and no
curiosity at all as to his surroundings,
only an overwhelming lussltude aud
weariness "of life. Something—some
thing that mattered very much hnd
gone ont of existence, tie could not
remember what It was.
There was a uniformed nurse by tho
bed. He had a curious antipathy to
asking her anything. He hud made
a promise of secrecy to someone—
Toward evening he had managed to
evolve out of hi 4 reviving conscious
ness some faint memory of what hud
happened to him. He remembered that
he was walking down a bill and that
ho had fallen forward. For quite u
bait-hour, late In the afternoon, he
struggled to remember why he had
gone down the hill.
Then he got It He had been up at
the hall to see Elinor. It was Elinor
who had gone out of his life. Elinor!
He slept very little during the night,
and as his fever rose, he called the
nurse "Elinor," and begged her fran
tically to tell him tltut something was
"Of course It Is not trne,'* said the
nurse, who was accustomed to being
called various things.
"Con did not meun It at all?" He
eyed her wistfully. The nurse was
large and plain, with a wide, lint face.
"Ton, with the eyes of a snlnt," said
poor Ward, "to try to tell me that you
are wicked. I ice that It Is Impos
sible. 1 think I can sleep now."
The nurse put her band, which was
large and 111-shaped but very light and
tender, on his head. And so ho went

said Ward would live, she went' down
once more into her garden.
Many times during those three days
had Elinor tried to pray to Ward's
God and found herself voiceless and
Inarticulate. But now, out of the
depth of her great relief, came welling
the first prayer of her life. She stood
waist-deep among her phlox and lark
] spur. 1
| "I thank thee," she said. "I thank
thee." . . .
Nothing had been heard of Huff.
The assault on the assistant rector of
Saint Jude's had been of a line with
(the other mysterious happenings
| around the village. The little town
was hag-ridden with fenr. Extra con
stables had been sworn In, and from
the hall, during her long night vigils,
Elinor had seen mfiny lighted win

life was Intolerable. To meet Ward,
to see again the scorn and loathing In
his eyes, more than all, to continue to
deserve them—those were the things
that to Elinor seemed worse than
All the philosophy that old Hilary
had taught her fulled her now. The
; revolt of the Individual against laws
made for the ' masses—what had It
brought her but Isolation and grief?
Of what use was revolt? All must go
through the mills of the gods. She
knew that now. There were no ex
] ceptlons. And something else she had
learned: that if one la to live through
great crises one must have a higher
power to turn to for help. She had
felt It vaguely at the time of her fa
ther's death. Sitting outside Ward's
i door she had known It. Every breath
had been a prayer to something, she
knew not what, to save him.

She did not send for Boroday. She
dared not. But because the intlmucy
betwe(S» her and the inlddlc-aged Rus
sian had always been very close, he
seemed to feel her need. And so, on
tbut Wednesday night, an hour or so
after midnight, he came.
Old Henrlette came down and
tapped softly at Elinor's door.
"Boroday," sho whispered. "Ho has

That was one of old Hilary's de

to the house. It prevented collisions.

there. Ho bent over her hand and

realizing that she was crying, he held

that night, very fatherly. He put her

"No," said the Russian, "i can see
that. ISut make no mistake. Vou are

"I could sell the house and—and I

To a certain extent lie was reconciled
to her going away. Things were clon

would probably all hnve to separate. It
were better that Kllnor be In safety.
So for a long time they discussed

There had been a dinner at the
country club that night The chief had
attended It, unknown to hostess and
guests, to the extent of sitting In the
grillroom during the evening and care
fully watching the men who came and
went. Ho had dined quite alone in the
grill. From where he sat he could see
the dinner-party guests on the veranda.
There were noticeably few jewels to be
seen. Over his chop and lager beer
the chief smiled grltnly.
After that he shook dice for a short
time with a young Englishman named
Talbot, an Interesting fellow. Prom

the chief smiled under his herfVy mus
tache, If there wus the faintest pos
sible twinkle In Talbot's eyes, who was
there to see?
Tnltiot took the chief down to the
station In his gray machine. They had
chatted very pleasantly. But Just oj£
poslte the steps from Elinor's garden
they blew out a tire. The car swerved,
suddenly throwing the light from the
lamps along the bank. Standing In the
shadows, and t!hus unexpectedly re

Jumped out. The Russian had gone
on down the hill.
"Awfully sorry," said Talbot "Looks

the chief, eyes ahead in tho darkness.
"Whose place Is this?"
Talbot glanced up and around.
"I'm nfrald I don't know anything
about the village." He opened the tool
The chief took two or three steps
along tho road and turned. "About
here, wasn't It, that the Episcopal
clergyman was shot?"
"I cannot tell you that either. It was
somewhere along this road."
"Good night," sang tho chief cheerily,
and started down the hill.
Boroday had come out of the Hilary
Kingston place. He knew that Right
here, almost where he stopped, was
where Ward had been found. Then,
in spite of old Hilary's death, the band
was still using his house I Things were
closing up. Boroday tramped on down
the road. About one hundred yards
behind the chief followed.
Talbot, hammering at a recalcitrant
tire, filled the air with the abort, angry
raps of his hammer on the rim. . , .
Tho Russian had an almost uncanny
sense of pursuit More than once in
his life It had saved him, and now he
kftew bo was being followed. He made
no attempt whatever to throw his pur
suer off tho track, but went directly to
the station. There he got an evening
paper at the closing news stand and
glnnced over It standing under an arc
light. For all his engrossment he saw
quite distinctly the figure of the chief
as ho crossed the track and took up
his station behind a pillar of the traln
shed. Boroday was thinking hard. It
had been that unlucky swerving of a
machine on the bill that had betrayed
him. Ho knew that now. And he had

him home. He knew where ho lived,
and he could lay his hand on him when
he wanted him. He was going to want
him now pretty soon. The Russian
knew that. too.
When he had epfered his apartment
and turned on the light, he found Huff
standing by a window. The boy
ducked back ns the light went up.
For a moment the two eyed one an
other. Htiff was unshaven, sunkeu
eyed, dirty. Tho contrast bet ween this
wild-eyed t>oy and the tali Russian was
"Well?" said Huff defiantly.
"Sit down." Horoday'a tone was

Nevertheless Boroday forced on him

"She was In love with him. I wish
I'd killed him."
Very patiently, Boroday told him I
what bad happened. Over the matter
of the Bryant pearl he passed as light
ly as he could. But Huff realized the,
ilgtilfieance of Elinor's placing It in
the almsbox. He went rather white.
"Wo would have got off with the
