CHAPTI9H I. (Continued.)
Cecil had cut herself off from him.
A few months after she had married
n dissipated young nobleman, whoso
character was anything but above sus
picion; nntl the two had finally left
England, having arrived on the brink
o'f ruin, and, It was reported, were fre
quenting the gambling tables of Mo
naco and Hamburg.
Cecil's treatment of her father had
killed any lingering feeling of senti
ment Enderby had for her. He was
able to thank Providence profoundly
that ho had discovered her truo nature
before it was too late.
Dundas Lyndon had been found
guilty, and sentenced to lifelong Im
prisonment. The morning after his
sentence he was found dead in his cell;
he had managed to secrete a small
quantity of deadly poison about his
person, and cut short his doomed ca
reer with It.
Jasmine is just now with Paul's sis
ter, tho Hon. Mrs. Kraser, who is mar
ried to a Scottish laird in the South of
Scotland. Paul had laid the whole
story before his sister, and asked her
advice. Jasmine was his ward, he de
clared, and as such he meant to look
Mrs. Frwer a. good-hearted little
woman, with no children, and living
In ratliAr a lonely country district
had come up to Ixmdon, Been Jasmine,
taken a sudden fancy for her, and de
clared nothing would suit her better
than to have Jusmlnc as a companion.
Bo Jasmlno had gono to Calder's
Knowe, nnd Mrs. Fraser hud never re
gretted her choice.
Paul hud been several times at Cal
der's Knowe, and, as he is able to take
a few days' holiday In May, ho decides
to "run down" to Scotland, taking his
bicycle with him.
He rides from tho station he has
Bent no word to his Bister, having a
masculine fondness, a fondness never
shared by the recipients, for giving sur
prisesleaving word for his luggage to
be sent after him.
Calder's Knowe Is about six miles
from the sleepy little village and sta
tion known as Cnlderhead, and tho
road is a bad one, from a cyclist's
point of view, being composed of a
series of very steep "houghs and
howes," as the villagers call them, and
a surfuce of mingled loose clay and
However, It Is a lovely evening, and
Paul Enderby is wonderfully happy
and light-hearted as ho speeds along
the lonely road bounded on both sides
oy silent, melancholy moors.
What Is the real cause of his happi
ness? Is it that things are going very
well with him, and that he Is consid
ered by his fellow barristers as on tho
fair way to the top of his profession?
Or can It be that the prospect of
Bcelng hlB Bister "Best little woman
in tho world!" has anything to do
However, that may bo, Paul's
Paul's thoughts aro wandering very
far afield as he coasts down a Bteep
hill, whoso gradient Is at least one
In eleven, his "free wheel" stationary,
and hlB mind as easy as that of a
scorcher on an utterly desolate road
Alas! even scorchers are sometimes
out In their reckoning, or Paul would
have remembered the sudden, sharp
curve at tho foot of the hill.
He docs not, and moving along
with velocity strikes across the road
instead of round it, and the next mo
ment he Is sont flying over a ditch
Into the moorland beyond, and his
machine twisted and curved into all
manner of crooked shapes lies
spreading across the ditch.
For a moment or two tho shock of
his sudden impact with the ground
stuns Enderby; a faintness, such as
he has nover known In all his life,
comeB over him, and his eyes close.
Tho next moment he dimly hears a
cry of horror; then Is it long after?
some ono Is bending over htm, gen
tle bands touch his face, and suddenly
another cry this time of agonized
and startled surprise falls on his ear.
"Paul! Paul! Oh, God! la he dead?
is he dead?"
Hf would have spoken, would have
opened his eyes, but something, he
know not what, keops him from doing
bo. The soft, hands how soft, how
tunder they are! wander over bis
face, touch his cheek, gently lift his
hand, and ho feels them claBped round
his wrist A Bobbing cry breaks from
tho owner of tho hando.
"Thank Ood! Thank God! Oh. what
am I to do for him? My dear my
The words are only a breath a soft
brMth breathed above him. But It is
more than Paul can stand. Suddenly
the warm color rushes back Into his
face, his eyes open, and with an ef
fort he raises himself on his elbow,
his oyes devouring the fair young face
bont, first with pale agony, then with
sudden surprised and warm shyness,
Fair it is Indeed; for Jasmine Ge
rard has grown to be like her name
a white flower, with 'Just a slight
warm coloring to show there are life
and warmth behind ths whiteness;
Zf. B. tcVe.iv6 f
sweet, graceful such a blossom us a
man might "give all his worldly bliss"
Tho childhood In the fare is gone;
It is a womun'H faco now, tender and
earnest In its womanliness. And the
expression in the dark-gray eyes, as
they meet his for one startled mo
ment, and then drop away, is one
which thrills Paul Enderby, stunned
and shaken us he still Is, through and
"Jasmine!" he sighs, and, putting
out his hand, takes herB and holds it
"my little Jasmine!"
The white flower now becomes a
"Wo did not know you did not say
you were coming," Jasmine falters.
"Aro you hurt? Oh, you must be! I
saw you coming round the curve,
though I did not know you; and I
tried to call, but It was too late. Oh,
I am so thankful It Is not worse! '
She shuddered. "Tell me what I can
do for you?"
"I shall stand up, and then we'll see
If there any broken bones. May I
lean on you?"
Paul puts his hand on tho slender
shoulder, and stands up, shaking his
limbs like a wounded Hon.
"My arm Is bruised a bit, I think;
otherwleo I seem sound enough. Hal
lo! what's this?" as a drop or two of
blood falls on his hand.
"Oh, it's your arm! Let me look
nt it!" cries Jasmine, turning pale
again. "Sit down, nnd I shull try to
He doesso, nnd rolls up his sleovo.
There is an ugly Jagged rent In the
flesh, where a sharp stone has torn
through his slcevo; It Is bleeding pro
fucely. Jasmlno says nothing, but he sees
her lips quiver. She makes a bandage
of her own dainty little hnndkerchlef,
and rolls It tightly round Uio wound,
then very gently draws down tho
sleevo over It, and lifts her face, but
with lowered eyes, to Enderby's.
"Does It feel any better?"
"It feels quite better," he answers
with unnecessary fervor.
"Theu shall we go on? I suppose
your machlno is broken?"
"I'm afraid so," says Enderby, ris
ing. He stands silent; then, suddenly put
ting out his hand, ho takes Jasmine's.
"Jasmine I must toll you I heard
what you said when you thought I
was unconscious. Did you mean it,
Again tho soft color rolls up, and
the lips grow tremulous.
"Because I hope you did. Jasmine,
Jasmlno! my own dear little girl! do
you know why I came to Calder's
Knowe Just now? It was because I
couldn't stay any longer away; be
cause I felt that life would be unen
durablo for mo without knowing my
fate. I came to tell you I love you,
Jasmlno, I love you with all my heart
and soul. Will you come to me dar
ling thnt is. If you can love me as
Tho pretty head sinks lower; the
lips grow more unsteady. Enderby
feels the little hand tremble and pal
pitate. "I think I have loved you since I
first met you, only I didn't know it,"
he sayB, smiling. "I knew it after
your father died, and when you came
here than I was sure of It. Darling,
I am far older than you, and I am,
perhaps, grave and quiet for my years;
but you have known Borrow, and I
don't think you wish for much gaiety.
Even if you do, I shall try to glvo you
It; I shall try to make up, if I can,
for tho past "
"Oh, don't say more!" she cries
tremulously. And sho lifts her face,
and he sees hor eyes, glowing with
"the light that was never on soa or
land," raised to hlB. "You have been
so good so good! Who In tho world
ever did for another what you did for
him, and for me? But I am not half
good enough for you. I um a poor
portionless girl, and I don't know the
great world. You should have some

The moors nnd ronds are ns desolate
and lonely as If there were no other
beings In the world but these two;
and Paul, with his uninjured . arm,
draws her very closo to him, and
holds her against his breast.
"Dear little girl, you aro the only
woman In the world I want for my
wife; Isn't that enough? Jasmine,
you haven't said you love me, though.
Do It now, won't you?"
Tho little murmur is breathed into
the pocket of his cycling jacket; but
Paul is content. He bends and kisses
"You have made me as happy as a

house. Ho was looking out. Tho lit
tle boy, David Harris, picked up a gun
that was leaning insldo the door.

hunters or what ho did is not known,
but It was discharged within three or
four feet of Mr. Zedtker's back, Inflict
ing a terrible wound balow the hip
joint. The little boy did not realize
