Here Henri gave a clownish imitation
of Heleiie's persuasive glances, with the
result that Quayle threw himself upon
his bed and roared.
"Acting is not in your line." said
Quayle, still laughing. "The only part
you could play to life would be that of

tune comes, you will allow this wench

"Nerve to pay her for the injury she
did to us. Nerve to return to her with
interest payment for our years in chains.
Nerve to strike, if necessary, a blow that
will avenge all we suffered through ber."
Henri had turned pile beneath the
olive of bis skin, and he sat on his
chair, gripping the arms wilh bis band.
His dark eyes flashed aud his brow dark
ened. At lat he roee with his face dis
torted by the evil passions which his
companion's speech bad aroused.
"1 pay out ?.at 'ouud Adiius." he said:

Quayle's next tp waa to again pene
trate the Union lines and have another
talk with Captain Denon. The evening
found him at Savage Station. Walter
was mider strict surgical surveillance,
and noliody was allowed to speak to
him. but tbe surgeons gave Quayle per
mission to see Denon. Denon was over
joyed when be heard that his letter bad
been delivered to Helene.
"Do you think the will come?" eh aJ(
ed. "I can't say." waa Quayle's reply.
"She has your letter. She has asked to
see me. but hitherto I bare not been
able to meet her. 1 can only aay I will
try my best."
"Miss leninre will be doubly glad to
come when she knows that Xlajor Adams
has regained consciousness and that there
i great hope of his recovery," said De
non. "The strange thing in connection
with his Improvement Is the fact that
he thinks he Is mrt Major Adains. of the

"Somebody else altogether?" he asked.
"Who doea be think be Is?"
"He aaya that his name la Walter

moment, he could not hare started up

That night Quayle crossed the Chlcka

laiuoita deed he waa planning might be
safely and. effectually committed.

Col. A. lams had recovered ss f jr that
the doctors had given permission tn hart

in the eoui.try some forty or fifty miles
from Richmond, where the greater quiet,
and tbe air uudeSled by the vicinity of
Cbickahominy swampa, would hasten bis
reetoialiou to complete health and activ
ity. Tlie colonel was te be sent there on
the following day. aud Heleue waa to ac
company bim. Where au excuse is t" be
found for anything, a woman is sure to
be able to fashion one. Helene arranged
with Col. Adams to go wilh him to his
friend's residence, and then t return tn
Richmond for the purpose of superin
tending certain lmu- hold affairs. Tliete,
sue said, would occupy ahaut a week.
Adams read.ly consented. Helen had
become dearer to him every day, and
from regarding ber at a diughter, his
feeling bad change.) to an sfe-tioa of a
different kind, aud be biped and longed
for the day when he would dare to ask
her to bexmie b s wife.
Hs attentions had become more mark
ed, and Helene was glad of the oppor
tunity to escape them. The excuse of
the journey to Richmond gave her time
to go to the federal camp, and return if
her mysterious gui le nad protector con! !
so arrange. She, therefore, wrote a note
as follow s:
"1 go with the colonel to Columbia the
diy after to-morrow, and shall be fres to
meet you on Monday or Tuesday next at
oi.;- place you may appoi .t- Kindly sen I
me your instructions, and 1 will implicit

She inclosed this little noe In an en
velope, and sent Sue w;tb it t the camp
to give it to Henri. The next morning
lie received the following reply, brought
to ber by Henri:
"If you cau arrange to he at Ashland

you at Crockett's tavern, and I will then

Helene had no difficulty ia obtaining
the requisite permit for Henri. She did
not even mention who the soldier wat.
Adams was only too hsppy that she
should ask him for anything, no matter
v,bat. and he granted her request with
out a question of why or who.
When tbe young rrenchinsn came to
Quayle's rooms and brought bJm Helene's
reply, agreeing to meet bim at the ap
pointed place, Quayle for the first time
felt a shiver creep through him. and a
repugnance which he bad uot known be
fore chilled his blond.
"Rah!" be said to himself. "It ts not
a nice job, but it has to be done. lie-
les who knows? I may be able to
get that swe-p to do It for me. Ah! Mr.
Kodhert Berinquay." he said, "you don't

'Ho, for old lingloiid!' And I shall be
glad to get back to Ixiiidon. I'll have a
bitler chance thjs time with one hundred
thousand pounds lu my pocket."
Quayle's plan was fimidishly simple.
After meeting Heleue on Tuesday even
ing at Aslilaud. a village about eighteeu
miles to the northwest of Richmond, hs
would take her southeast, outside of the
pickets of both armies, to a ruined hut
in a field not far from the UuJou lines at
Reaver IVsm creek.

of short, but very heavy, revolvers, car
