"No. je're not." said the indomita ble Peg. holding Ler firmly by the wrist. "Let me go!" whispered Ethel, strug gling to release herself. "Ye're not goin' out o' this house tonight if I have to wake every one in it." "Wake them!" cried Ethel. "Wake them. They couldn't stop me. Noth ing can stop me now.

"Well. 1 tneuu to say!" ejaculated the astounded young man as oe wniued across to the switeh and Hooded the room with iight. "What does this mean?" a.-ked Mrs. Chichester severely.

Mrs. Chichester had been examining I'eg minutely. She suddenly ex claimed: "Why. that is Ethel's coat!" "S::re it is." replied Peg, "an this Is her hat I've got, an here's her bag." Teg was striving her utmost to divert Mrs. Chichester s attention from JJthel, w ho was in so tene and nervous a condition that it seemiJ as if she might faint at any moment. She thrnst the dressing bag into the old lady's hand. Mrs. Chichester opened it immediately and found just insiiJe it Ethel's jewel box. She took it out and held it up accusingly before Peg's eyes. "Her jewel box! Wherdidyou get this :" "1 took it." said Peg promptly. Mrs. Chichester opened the bos. It was full. Every jev.el that Ethel own ed was in it- "JJer jewels-Ethers jewel-:!" "Yes. I took then) too." Yr.ci were stealing them?" "No. 1 wasn't stoalir,' thera. I just took Vm. I -wanted to wear them." answered Peg readily.

"1 say, you know." he went on. "what is happi n- in this Louse ton:2-Lt?" lorry came straight down to Mrs. i Chichester. "1 saw your lights go up. and I came here on the run. 1 guessed something like this had happened. Don't be hard on your i. iece. Mrs. Chichester. The whole thing was entirely my fault. 1 asked her to go." Mrs. Chichester looked at him st'ini'y. "You took my niece to a dance In spite of ray absolute refusal to allow her to ro'r" "He had nothiu' to do with it." said Peg. "I took l.i:u to that dance." Mrs. Chichester looked steadily at Jerry for a few moments before she spoke. When she did spak her voice w-as cold at: 1 hard nd accusatory. "Surely Sir Geni i Adair knows bet ter thau to take a girl of eighteen to a public ball without her relations' sanc tion ?" "I thought only of the pleasure it j wou.j give her. he answered. 1'lease I accept my siucerest apologies." 1 Peg looked at fcim in wonder. ' "Sir Gerald Adair!

I She slipped from Peg's arms to the chair a lid cn to the floor and lay quite still. Peg knelt down beside her: "She's fainted. Give her air!" Peg loosened Ethel's Cress tmd talked to her all the while, and Jerry and .Marie hurried out in different direc tions in quest of restoratives. Mrs. Chichester came toward EtheL thoroughly alarmed and upset Rut Peg would not let her touch the inanimate girl. "(Jo away from her!" cried Peg hys terically. "What good do ye think ye can do tier? What do you know atout her? You don't know anything about yer children. Ye don't know how to raise- them. Ye don't know a thought in, yer child's mind.

Poor Mrs. Chichester fell back, crush ed and burailkited from Peg's on slaught. In a few moments the two men re-turm-d with water and salts. After iiwhile Ethel opetied ber eyes and look id up at I'eg. Peg. fearful le-st she thould begin to accuse herself again, helped her up the stairs to her own room and there she s;it beside the un strung, hysterical girl until she slept, her hand locked iu hoth ot Peg's. One thing I'eg had resolved she would not spend another night in the Cb;eheter home. Her iii tie ho., it was bruised and sore. The nnubt had rpgun so happily; it hud ended so wretchedly.

Poor I'eg felt so humiliated that she made op her mind she would never see him again. In the morning she would go back to the one real aB'ectlon of her life to the man who never hurt or disap pointed her her father. We will now leave Peg for awhile and return to one who claimed so much of the reader's attention iu the early pages cf nis history O'Couneil. It had not been a happy month for him. He felt the separation from Peg keenly. At first he was almost in consolable. The days passed slowly until Peg's lirst letter came. It cemtained the news of Kingsaorth's death Peg's en trance into the Chichester family, her discontent, her longing to te back once more in New York. This was followed by more letters, all more or less in the same key. Finally he wrote urging her to give it all up and come back to him. He would not have his little daughter tortured for all the ad vantages those people could give her. Then her letters took on a different aspect. They contained a curious half note of happiness in tbem. No more mention of returning. On the con trary. I'eg appeared to be making the best of the conditions In which she was placed These later letters set O'Connell won dering, nr.d the great message of life come to his little Peg?

That Peg was developing her char acter and ber nature during those few weeks was clear to O'Connell. The whole tone f her letters had changed. But no word of hers gave him any clew to the real srate of her feelings until one day he received a letter al r:osf entirely composed of descriptions d the appearance, mode of speech. method of thought and expression of one Jerry.
