CHAPTER VII. (Continued.)
"Strangers?" repeated Evan Mon

astonishment nnd reproach. He r.tond

eyes to his face. Slip felt Phe could

In a low voice that thrilled with some
Jeep feeling. "After nil that has been
between us, do you still count in otran
S'Jia? Is tbla your love or your prom
ised trust?" Day's face was palo ns
death. She put her hand to her throat
before she answered. Then Ehe spoke
at last, very slowly, as If she were
trying to weigh her words well.
"Mr. Montellh, we Know almo3t
nothing of each other. Our acquain
tanceship, even now, only extends to
three weeks. Wo Orcadians do not
leap Into friendship so suddenly an the
Southrons. It takes years to make our
friendship strong and true. You know
little of us; wo know nothing at nil

He had, been silent for a few mo
ments when Day ceased speaking.
Now his voice sounded hard and .il
most hoarse. "A man docs not need to
look for much faith among his fellow

have asked It from you? And yet I
thought you meant what you bald that

trembling, with doubt and remorse and
love fighting within her, stood alono
on the road.
"Mr. Montclth la coming tonight,
Miss Troll, so, If you aro not engaged
with Lady Westrny, you might stay
In the drawing-room nnd play to us,"
cald Mies Stuart languidly.
She reclined In a luxurious casy
chalr, her reddish-auburn head among
the velvet cushions, ono beautiful
white hpnd lazily stroking the Persian
cat In her lap. LUIth Stuart had a
strange affection for theso animals.
Could it be, a3 "Aurora Leigh" says
tho work of woman Is, symbolical?
Elspeth Troll looked up quickly from
her scam, taking In at ono swift glance
tho attitude of the graceful, sinuous
flguro In Its palo-grcen evening-gown,
trimmed heavily with creamy lace, un
til It looked like that of a Thetis spring
Ing from tho sea-foam. There wero
times when, even to Elspeth, who had
known her for six yews, LUIth was a

Stuart," sho replied, In her grave, quiet
There was nothing In common be
tween theso two young women, nnd
eilonce followed Elflpeth's reply. She
wont on quietly with her work, while
LUIth played with her Persian, alter
nately stroking it and pulling Its cars.
Presently steps sounded on the softly-carpeted
corridor outside, nnd tho
door was thrown open, tho footman
announcing with ceremony, "Mr. Evan
LUIth did not rise, but lay back In

door, her dark-blue eyes with that
deep, mysterious smile In thom which
A. had brought so many hearts to hor
teot, her hand half extonded tho ac
tion of n queen oxpcctlng homage.
Montelth came forward and bowed
low; but ho did not tako tho half
proffered hand, and LUIth allowed it
to fall by her side.
"Look at my lovely pussy! Is sho
not a queen among Persians?" sho
cald, laying her own beautiful mouth
on the to? of tho animal's head.
"And, do you know, I actually oellove
ane loves mo? Is It not strange?"
Thero was hardly coquotry In tho
Star or toe I
question; It was almost murmured
ovor the Persian's head, nnd might
hiivo been Intended for her as much
as for Montolth. Montelth took no no
tiro cf It. He turned to shake hands
with Elspeth, then, coming back to
LIUHi's side, took a scat beside her.
"You have sent for me, and, In obo
dlenco to your request, I nm here,"
he said. In n lowered tone. Elspeth
ro3n nnd made n motlJii as If to leave
"Ob, don't go, please. Miss Troll"
cried LUIth. "1 wish you to play to
us. Something low nnd soft and sweet.
like this divine evening. And wo shall
sit and dream while you aro playing.
Ask her. Mr.-Montelth."
"I shall play If you wish me, Miss
Stunrt." said Elspeth again. She came
back, and going to the piano, opened

keys, began one of Mendelssohn's
"Songs Without Words."
LUIth lay back In her chair, an ex
pression of delight on her changeful
"Ah! don't distress me!" she raid,
when Montellh made a movement ns
If he worn about to speak. "Do you
know what I feel like? A dream yes;
and It Is of tho past the past that
comes never ngalu!" Sho sighed a
little, and her long dark lashes swept
her cheek, lying like a shadow upon
them. Montelth looked at her for a
moment. Porbap3 no other man In tho
world could have looked at her with
out a thrill of admiration.
She looked divinely fnlr and divinely
sweet at that moment; but Montclth's
faco was strangely cold nnd stern.
Elspeth plnyed on nnd on. Sho waa
only n paid cmplo; c. and. however
galling It might sometimes bo to obey,
she know that on LUIth Stuart's favor
depended her situation; for Lady
Westrny was not In a position to defy
the mistress of Crag Castle.
And Montelth, in spito of himself,
began to feel strangely softened. Ills
mind wandered to tho old-fashioned
garden nt Abbot's Head, and to tho
dainty llguro that used to lilt among
tho rose-bushes there. Ho had nlmo3t
forgotten tho ono besldo him, and
btarted na a soft hand fell on his.
"Lot us go out," whispered Llllth's
voice almost In his car, "to tho terrace.
The evening Is so entrancing that it
scenia a shame to remain Indoors. And
do you hear tho birds singing In tho
garden? I do even above tho music.
You will come?" Montelth ro3o with
out a word. Ah they passed tho piano
LUIth tapped Elspoth lightly on tho
"Thank you. It Is beautiful," sho
said. "Dut wp have demnnded too

"Daro I warn him?" fihe snld to her
self. "And yet I think bo knows her.
Ho does not trust her; but thero Is no
one In tho world I distrust more."
LUIth had gone to the edge of tho
balcony and leant upon tho balusters.
From that rlnt tho vlow was ono
which can only be seen In northern
lnnds. Although It was long past sun
set, the sunset glory still lingered In
tho western sky In colors so gorgeous
and vivid thnt no painter's brush
would daro reproduce thom.
Montelth had followed LUIth and
leant his arm on the balustrade. Sho
looked up at him, her eyes gleaming
"You have something to say to me.
What In It?"
"Yes; I have something to say to
you," Montelth answered slowly, as If
ho weighed every word he uttered. "A
fortnight ago, LUIth Stuart, you and I
met ngnln under strange circum
stances. You asked mo then If It was
to bo war or peace between us. I have
como now to give you my answer.
"Onco upon a time I was your dupo
and believed In you; but thnt Is long
ago. Now 1 know you as you are. I
am no longer taken In bv your smiles,
your touches, your sweet words. I
know what theso aro worth, and I
mensuro my strongth, not against
them, but against yourself. And hav
ing said this, I have said all. You un
derstand me now?"
Sho was still looking at him, but tho
expression In her eyes had blowly
changed as ho was speaking. Thero
was something In them now not pleas
ant to bee something cruel, gleaming,
almost wolfish. She put her hand to
tho laco nt her white neck, and her
llttlo pink nails dug Into It fiercely.
"Then It Is to bo war?" alio wills
pored, almost hissing the words In a
"If you llko to put It so yee, Miss
Stuart," said tho young man, very
Sho leant over tho balustrade again,
her faco growing curiously palo nnd
6ct. Then nuddonly she sprang erect,
turning to him, laid her hand on his
"Evan, remember all tho past! Oh,
la thnt nothing to you?"
"Nothing," ho answered, in tho same
cold tone, "The past only causes mo

Founded strangely low In her throat;

MontPlth. "I shall go now. Mlas Stu

hold out her beautiful whlto hand a

In tho past to him. Her eyes, which,
oven In tho dark, shone like a cat's,
were eurlojsly luminous. "Good-by,

Montclth gravely. "It would bo hy
IKjcrlsy to do to. Good-by onco more,
Ho bowrd, turned and loft her. A
stair led down from tho balcony to tho
gardens. He went down by It, and
soon vanished from sight. When ho
hnd gone. LUIth turned nnd stretched
out her beautiful arms, with tholr
foamy yellow laco, towards the direc
tion In which ho had gone.
"The day nftcr tomorrow," she said.
And a little, low laugh camo rippling
from her red lips. "Oh. fool! fool!
Tho duy nftor tomorrow!"
"There Is nothing else for II. I nm
forced Into this unfortunnto position!"
tald Evan Montelth to himself, as ho
cycled back to Stromness nlong tho
cliff-path, which was, however, safe
enough, for It was strongly protected
by a wooden barricade. Even now It
was hardly dark nnd Montclth had not
111 tils lamp.
"I wish the work had been commit
ted to any other but to mo," ho mused
as ho spun ouwnrdii.
"Hut I must ntono for tho pant.
Much of It has been my fault, and on
me. therefore, lies tho responsibility
of undoing any evil I hnvo done. Yes,
I shall go to London and lay the factu
beforo tho lawyers; then commit all
Into their bands, lint am I to go with
out seeing Dny?"
His faco changed as the nnmo wns
uttered, a little hesitatingly even to
himself. Tho sternness and resolution
faded out, nnd a softened expression
crept over It.
"Will sho forgive mo when sho
knows nil?" ho thought. "Ah, surply
sho will? And yet, could I be satis
fied with her forgiveness nlonc? Is
there not moro that I cravo for. pure
souled darling! Surely her parents
wore far-sighted when they gnve her
her name, for sho Is like the day Indeed
bringing Joy and minshlnc nnd love
wherever she goes. Surely, if a bad
woman Is the worst crenturo on earth,
a good ono is God's host gift to mnn?"
Montelth had a room at tho Gow
Hotel; but ho did not sleep much thnt
night. When ho did, his sleep was
hnunted by Btrange, awful dreams, In
which ho felt himself being hurled
over some frightful precipice; and
when ho looked up to tho platform of
rock from which ho had fallen, ho saw
tho mocking face of LUIth Stuart gaz
ing down nt him, nnd heard her scorn
ful ldughter float above him on tho
The dream haunted him stra:foly,
oven after he had risen and break
fasted. He told himself It was only
tho natural result of yesterday's dis
agreeable duty; but somehow ho could
not shake off the uncomfortablo lm

of tho rival banks, who have been
elected "tuttlmen" for tho ensuing
year, go round to tho houses of tho
tenants In the town and exercise their
prerogative of kissing all tho ladles in
each houso. Hungerford Is one of tho
last remnlnlng unreformed boroughs of
England, and still retains Its nnclent
official nomenclature, electing to have
In place of mayor nnd corporation, a
constable, a portreeve, a keeper of tho
coffers, a hayward, two ale tasters and
a bollman. Tho tuttlmen (who nro
