CHAPTER IX. (Continued.)
"You will find It very hard to pet
nny one to believe your Btory In the
face of the cashier') sworn testimony,"
he says coolly. "My dear Barbara,
Uouverte was proved guilty. He was
tried for drugging the cashier and nib
bing the bank, nnd he committed the
crime without a shadow of doubt. 1
dare say you were weak enough to
hand him over n hundred pounds, but
ho robbed the bank as well."
"He did not!" breathes Barbara des
perately, "and It was 1 who begged
nnd prayed him to take the money. I
was to be his wife; there was no harm
in It, nnd It saved him from dis
honor." Mrs. Saville takea Barbara's hand.
"My dear, don't make a fool of your
self! We don't doubt that he took
your money It was exactly the kind
of thing a man like George Bouverle
would do, but he was guilty of the
bank robbery as well. It Is hard on
you, Harbara, but ho Is not worth a
Barbara's breath comes fast. Her
eyes fill suddenly with tears at the re
membrance of an Interview between
herself nnd George that had been sol
emn and nlmost sacred. He had knelt
beside her, with his face sorely trou
bled, and she had prayed to God to
give him strength to begin a new life,
nnd give up the poison of the mania
for gambling. Was it likely after that
he would have committed the sin he
was found guilty of?
She draws her hand from her aunt's

Sebastian most of all, but I will save
Barbara carries her point, and starts
on her journey alone.
Sebastian shrugs his shoulders.
"What a high-flown piece of busi
ness! But I bee now why she went
out to Tasmania second class."
"Barbara Is an Idiot!" responds Mrs.
Saville irritably. "I would like to lock
her up! I suppose wo may as well go
back to the Court till she comes to her

you like, and when Bnrbarn finds that

verle and the hundred pounds won't
get him out of prison I'll fetch her
over myself, but let her do all she can
Barbara goes straight to the Grange.
Who should she go to with her news
but to George's mother? And never
for a moment has she the slightest
doubt that her story will unbar the
prison doors and let George freo. It
was her money ho had. She had
brought It to him In a little bag, and
made him take It; and now, with her
pretty face full of sympathy nnd hope,
she gathers poor, sorrowful Mrs. ou
verie in her arms, nnd half weeping,
half laughing, tolls the whole story.,
And no doubt crosses the mother's
mind. Trembling with Joy and ex
citement, she clings to Barbara, and
the two women weep together, drawn
to each other by the link of love that
is between them.
"God bless you!" sobs Mrs. Bou
verlc. "1 knew my boy was Innocent,
but what shall we do, I am so Ig
norant? Ought we not go to the law
yer who defended hU case? Come,
Barbara! Oh, darling, you love him,
too; do not let us loso a moment! Wo
can go to Dublin this evening, and
then oh, surely tomorrow they will
sot him free?"
Neither Mrs. Bouvcrlo nor Barbnrn
have the slightest Idea of the red tapo
nnd the endless formalities that can
keep even an innocent man under lock
Upon this tearful scene of excite
ment Doctor Carter enters. He pays
many a visit to cheer up his old friend,

Ho Is fully as much excited as Mrs.
Bouverle and Barbara, and, like them,
sees no difficulties In tho way. It Is
only when, in answer to an urgent ap
peal, Mr. Jnrvls pays a lato visit to
the Hotel Metropole, whore Mrs. Bou
verle engages rooms, that n uttlo
doubt damps the ardor of their hopea.
The man of law looks at Barbara's

To Mrs. Bouverlo he says:
"This Is most Important evidence, I
wish It had been produced at tho time
of tho trial. It accounts for tho
money, but how are wn to get over the
facts sworn to by Mr. Grey when ho
identified' Bouverle as the man who
drugged him? That Is tho nut we have
to crack." ,
Tho look of Joy died out of Mr.
Bouverte's eyes, tears roll down her

free," she murmurs, pressing her

Mlis Saville, I will do nil that I can,"
the lawyer tnys earnestly. "If you
wish to leave the case In my hands, 1
will do my very best. You may de
pend upon me."
After that the days go by In an
agonized time of suspense nnd anxiety.
It seems so hard to sit still nnd wait,
ho cruel not to be nblo to rush to
George and tell him to hope. For,
after all, theic seems to be very little
hope, for how arc they to prove that
George Bouverlo did not rob the bank

Barbara stays at tho Grange, and
she Is all energy nnd excitement. She
will never rest till the whole case Is

bara cannot benr to do.
Tho great lawyer has come to Port-
raven, hoping to una oui some tiut,
but there seems nothing to find out.
Nobody enn throw nny light on tho
mystery till chance discloses what the
brains of men have failed to find out.
Mr. Jnrvls, walking down the street
of Portraven, puzzling out tho case
that occupies all his thoughts, meets
a shaip-faced-looklng lad, who accosts
"You bo the gentleman who is for
Mr. Bouverle?" ho says, touching his
"Yes, my boy, I was his counsel," re
turns Mr. Jnrvls, alert In a second.
The boy looks at hlra.

"And where Is Mr. Grey now?" Mr.
.larvls naked sharply.
"Gone to Queenstown today to catch
the steamer for America," the boy
says, with a glance of cunning. "I
told him I saw him take the bag. and I
thought ho might glvo me a liver to
say nothing about It. but ho kicked
mo down stairs, nnd I don't care now
if I tell on him or not."
Mr. Jnrvls puts his hand on the

The whole case seems full of per
plexity. Mr. Grey may have robbed
the bank a second time; that remains
to be seen. It is n mystery indeed!

fellow positively swore It was Bou
