CHAPTER XX Continued.
In tho Inner room,, whoso opening
door gavo glimpses of Lanstron and
tho division chiefs, a magic of necrot
council which tho juniors could not
quito understand had wrought tho won
der. Lanstron had not forgotten tho
dead., Ha could seo them; ho could
boo everything that happened. Had
not Partow said to him: "Don't just
read reports. Vlsuallzo men and
events. Be tho artillery, bo tho In
fantry, bo tho wounded llvo and think
In their places. In this way only can
you really know your work!"
His olatlon when ho saw his plans
going right was that of tho Instrument
of Partow'e training and Marta's serv
ice. Ho pressed the hands of tho men
around him; his volco caught in his
gratltudo and his breaths wcro very
fhort at tlmo, llko thoso of a spent,
happy runner at tho goal. Feeding on
victory and growing greedy of moijo,
his division chiefs were discussing how
to press tho war till tho Qraye sued for
peace; and ho was silent In the midst
of their talk, which was interrupted
by tho ringing of tho tunnel telephone.
When ho camp out of his bodroom,
t,anstron's distress was so evident that
thoso who wero seated aroso and tho
others drew near In inquiry and sym
pathy. It eoomed to them that tho
chlof of staff, tho head of tho machine,
who had left tho room had returned an
"Tho connection was broken whllo
wo wero speaking!" ho said blankly.
-Tnat moans It must lmvo boon cut
by tho enemy that tho enemy knows
of Its oxlstonco!"
"Perhaps riot. Perhaps an accident

"No, I'm BUro not," Lanstron replied
"I am sure that It was cut deliberately
wid not by hor,
"Tho G3d Hoglmont Is going forward

aows us a personal blow. Though ab

eplrlt nn intimato of their hopes and
"Sho Is holploss In thoir power!"
Lanstron said. "Thoro Is no tolling

A young offlcor of tho Grnye who
waB with tho signal-corps section. try-
lug to keep a brigade hoadquartors in
and thither with messages, in want of
wires. Commanders had been told to
hold, but how and whero to hold? Thoy
saw neighboring rcgimentn nnd bri
gades going nnd thoy had to go. TJio
mnchlno, tho complicated modorn war
machine, was broken; tho machine,
with-Its nerves of intelligence cut, bo
cnino a thing of disconnected parts,
each part working out its own salva
tion. Authority ceased to bo that of
tho bureau and army lists. It was' that
of units racked by hardship, acting on
tho hour's demand.
Gorged was tho pass road, over
flowing with tho struggling tumult of
men and vehicles. Self-preservation
breaking tho bonds of dlscipllno was
In tho ascendant, and It sought tho
highway, oven as water keeps to the
rlvor bed. Llko specks on tho labor
ing tide was tho whlto of bandages. An
ambulance trying to cut out to ono
sldo was overturned. Tho frantic
chauffeur and hospital-corps orderly
wore working, to oxtrlcato tho wound
ed from thoir painful position. A gun
was overturned against tho ambulanco.
A meleo of horses and men was form
ing at tho foot of tho garden gate in
front of tho narrowing bounds of the
road into tho town, as n stream banks
up boforo n Jam of driftwood. Tho
strugglo for right of way became in-
victory, and it Beems that tho woman's
voice thnt answered Is yours, MIba Gal-
land, So, General Westerllng, tho leak

our staff into tho Drowns' headquar
ters, as Bouchard believed and as I
camo to bollovo."
So long had Marta expected this mo
ment of exposure that It brought no
shock. Her spirit had undcrgono many
subtlo rehearsals for tho occasion.
"Yes, that Is true," sho heard herself
saying, n little distantly, but very
quietly nnd naturally.
Wosterllng fell back as from a blow
In tho face. His breath camo hard at
first, llko ono bolng strangled. Then
it sank deep in his chest and his eyes
were blood-ahot, as a bull's In his final
effort against the mntador. He raised
ii quivering, clenched list nnd took a
step nearer hor.
But far from flinching, Mnrta seemed
to bn greeting tho blow, as If sho ad
mitted his right to Btrlko. Sho was
without any sign of triumph and with
ovory sign of rollof. Lying was at an
ond. Sho could bo truthful.
"Do you recall what I said In tho re
ception-room at tho hotel?" sho nskod.
Tho question sent a flash Into a hid
den chamber of hie mind. Now tho
only thing ho could remember of that
lntorvlow was tho ono remark which
hitherto ho had never included in his
recollection of It.
"You snld I could not win." Ho drow
out the words painfully.
"When you said that you brought on
this war to gratify your ambition, I

age a victory which should glorify

'I should llko to ohoot you dead I"
"And you let mo make lovo to youl"
Wosterllng said in a dazed, groping
monotone to Marta.
Such a wreck was ho of his former
self that sho found It, amazing that sho
could not pity him. Yet she might
have pitied him had ho plunged Into
tho fight; had ho tried to rally ono of
tho broken regiments; had ho beon
able to forget himself.
lar on tho pass road and many field
batteries wero trotting along a parallel
road. Their plan doveloped suddenly
when a swath of gun-flro was laid
across tho pass road at tho mouth of
tho defile, as much as to say: "Hero
wo mako a gate of death!" At tho
same tlmo tho head of tho Brown in
fantry column flashed lte bayonets over
tho crest of a hill toward tho point
where tho Bhells wero bursting. Theso
men minded not tho despdrato, scat
tered rifle-fire into their ranks. Boforo
their oyes was tho prizo of a panic
that grow with their approach. Kinks
wero out of legs stiffened by long
watches. Tho hot breath of pursuit
was In their nostrils, tho fever of vic
tory In their blood.
In tho defile, the lmpulee of ono Gray
straggler, who shook n handkerchiot
aloft In fatalistic submission to tho In
evitable, became tho Impulse of all.
Soon a thousand whlto signals of sur
render wero blossoming. As tho firing
abruptly ceased, Marta heard tho faint
roar, of tho mighty huzzns of tho hunt
ers over tho size of their bag.
Some doctors of different regiments
thrown together In tho havoc of rem
nants of many organizations, with tho
help of hospital-corps men, wero try
ing to oxtrlcato tho wounded from
among tho dead. Thoy heard a wom
an's voice and saw a woman's face.
They did not wonder at her presence,
for there was nothing loft In tho world
for them to wonder at. Had an Imp
from hell or an angel from heaven ap
peared, or a shower of diamonds fallen
from tho sky, they would not have
been surprised. Their duty was clear;
thoro was work of their kind to do,
endless work. Unite of the broken ma
chine, In tho Instinct of their calling
they struggled with tho duty nearest
at hand. They begged her to go back
to tho house; this was no plnco for
But Marta did not want safety. Dan
ger was swoot; it was expiation. Sho
was helping, actually helping; that
was enough. Sho envied tho peaceful
dead thoy had no nightmares as sho
