Oreeba's eyes glistened, but not a iMscle of her face changed.

May a day like this th.-t has come t your father never, never como to you." And then all his brave bearing, h!r grand stiength broke down In a mo ment, and as the girl laid hold of hi: ! arm, lest he should reel and fill, Ik stumbled out at the threhid, sobbinti beneath his breath, "Sunltc4ts, my boy, Sunlocks, I am coming to you I am coming to rou." Chaise A'Killey followed them out muttetlng in an under-tresth r orris dee; Imprecations that no one heeded. "Strange," said he, "the near I was tc crucifying the Lord afresh and swear ing s mortal swear, only I rememberei my catechism and the good John We ley." At the gate to the road they me' Jason, who was coming down from Barrule with birds at his belt. Witt bewildered looks Jason stood and look ed at them as they came up, a sorry spectacle, In the brightness of the midday sun. Old Adam himself strod. heavily along, with his face turned dowa and his white hair falling over his cheeks. By his side Oreeba walked bearing herself as proudly ss she might, with her besd thrown back and her wrt eyes trying lo smile. A pace or two be hind came Chaise with his pony snd cart grunting hoarsely In his husky throat.' Not a word of greeting did they give to Jsson, and he asked for no explanation, for be saw It all after a Moment: they being now homeless had drifted back to their old boss and bad beea turned away fross It And sot a word of pity did be a bis part dart t offer tbeea, vat la the traa sysaaathy af HI h atsTped a to gam Urn Ms ttrwat am and then turned himself about to gw their way.

Yet, knowing the nrerigth of her purpjue, lie ennceaifd his intention, and his poor bewildered brain went about It work of rr'paraUf'n very artfully.

After a hafty meal he St! out Into the town, leavi::,' Grreba ti HKC, rcr she- had waixeii rarFnci--&rly morr.lng.

The trip was calculatfd to last one month willi fair wind and weather, such ns then promised. Adam counted the oit, and saw that with all present debts dlwharsed and future ones xnsldtred, he might have some thing between fix and seven pounds in his pocket when h? set foot In Reyk javik. Being sutlsfled with this pro, pect, he went lu the High Bailiff for hit. license to leave the Islnnd. Creeba bad heard nothing nf this, and as soon as night fell In fhe went up to bed at her father's entreaty. I!ei room was at the back of the house and looked out over the sea. and there she saw th moon rise ever the wnlers she undressed er.d laid down to sleep. Prompt to his hour Jaron came, and '.he it Adam told him all. "I am going fnr away," he said, "far away, Indeed Into your own country. 1 go tonight, though my daughter, who Is asleep, knows nothing of my Inten tion. Will you do me a service?"' "Try me," said Jason. And then Adam asked him to stay In Ramsey ever night that he might be there when Greeba came down In the morning, to break the news to her that her father hed gone, and to take her back with hlin to Lsgue. "They will not say no lo her, siclng her father is not witn her; and the lime Is coming when she will hold her right to a there of til they have, snd cone of them dare withhold It" Jason, who had been up to Latue, had beard of all that hud passed there, and played his own part too, though he said nothing of that He was now visibly agitated.
