A knock nt the door Interrupted
him. and he was -left to stare delight
edly nt the Crouched Venus and on
around the room at Uede's dainty pos
sessions, while she answeted tlio tele
phone. "It is Mr. Hegan," she said, on re
turning. "Ho Is holding the line. l
says it is Important."
Da light shook his head and smiled.
"l'lease tell Mr. Hegan to hang up.
I'm done with the olllee and I don't
want to hear anything about any

"Ho refuses to hang up. Ho told
me to tell you thut Unwln Is In the

He caught her by tho hand and drew
her to him.
"You let Hegan hang on to that line

you have been making," Hedo con
tended. "If you stop now, all tho work

Daylight was obdurate. He shook
his head and smiled tnnta'.'ingly.
"Nothing will be destr ed. Dodo,

"What have you done to him?" He
gan snarled at Dede;.
"Hold on there, Larry." For the
first time Daylight's voice was sharp,
wlillo all the old lines of cruelty in Ills
race stood forth. "Miss Manon Is go
ing to bo my wife, and while I don t
mind your talking to her all you want,
you've got to use a different tone of
voice or you'll be heading for a hos
pltal. which will Mire be an unex

you one other thing. Thisall Is my
doing. She says I'm crazy, too."
Dede stepped forward where she
confronted tho two men.
"Walt." sho said. "I want to say
something. Klain. if you do this In
sane thing. I won't marry you. I revise
to mnrry you."
Hegan. In spite or his misery, gave
imr n nulck. grateful look.
"I'll take my chance on mat, uay
light said. "And now. Larry, you'd
better be going. I'll bo nt tho hotel In
a llttlo while, and since I'm not go
ing to stop Into the office again, bring
all paiiers lo sign and the rest over
to my rooms And you can get me on
tho 'phono there any time. This
smash Is going through. Savee? I'm

Ho turned to Dede as soon as Ho
gan was gone, and took her by tho
"And now. llttlo woman, you needn't

"I'd cry. If I thought It would do any
good." sho threatened.
"In which enso I reckon I'd have to
hold you In my arms some more and

As he stood at tho top of the steps,
leaving, sho said:
"You needn't send those men. There
will bo no packing, because I am not
going to mnrry you"
"I'm not n bit scared." ho answered,
and went down tho steps.
Thmn dnvR later. Davllcht rode to
Berkeley in IiIb red cnr. It was for tho
last time, for on tho morrow the big
machine passed Into another's pos
session. It had been a strenuous three
days, for his smash had been the big
gest tho punlc had precipitated In Cal
ifornia. Tho papers had been filled
with It. and n great cry of Indignation
had gono up from tho very men who
intnr fnnnil that Davllcht had fully
protected their Interests. It was these
fncts. coming slowly to light, that
gave rlso to tho widely repeated
charge that Daylight had gone In
sane. It was tho unanimous conviction
among business men that no sano
man could possibly behave in such
fashlou. On tho other hand, neither
his prolonged steady drinking nor his
affair with Dede became public, so
tho nnlv rnnoliislnn nttnltmblo was
that tho wild fnaiicler from Alaska
had gone lunatic. And Daylight had
grinned nnd confirmed tho suspicion
by reluslng to Bee the repoiter. lie
halted tho automobile before Dedo'a
door, nnd met her with his same rush
ing tactics, enclosing her In his arms
before a wind could bo uttered.
"I've done It." ho announced.
"You've seen tho newspapers, of
course I'm plumb cleaned out. and
I've Just called around to find out
what day you reel Ilko starting for
(Hen Kllcn. It'll have to be soon, rot
it's real expensive living In Oakland
these days. My board at the bote' Is
only pnld to tho end or the week, and
I can't afford to stay on after that.
And beginning with tomoirow I've got
to uso the street cars, and they sure
eat up the nickels."
Ho paused, and waited, and looked
at her. Indecision and tiouble Bhowed
on her face. Then tho smile he knew
so well began to grow on her lips nnd
lu her eyes, until sho threw back her
head and laughed In the old forthright
"When nre those men coming to
pnek for me?" she asked.
And ntrain sho laughed and simu
lated a vain attempt to cscapo his
"Dear Khun." sho whispered; "dear
Klam." And of herself, for tho first
time, she kissed him.
"Now. I've got nn Idea." Daylight
said. "We're running away from cit
ies, nnd you have no kith nor kin. so
It don't seem exactly right that wo
should Btart off by getting married In
a city. So here's tho Idea: I'll run
up to the ranch and get things In
shnpe around the hoiibo and give tho
caretaker his walklngpnpors. You
follow mo In a couple of days, coming
on the mniuing train. I'll have tho
preacher llxed and waiting. And hero's
another Idea. You bring your riding
togs In a suit case. And bb soon ns
tho ceremony's over, you can go to
the hotel and change. Then out you
como. and you find me waiting with a
couplo of horses, and we'll lido over
tho landscape so as you can see tlio
prettiest parts of tho ranch tho first
thing. And she's sure pretty, that
ranch And now that it's settled. I'll
bo waiting for you nt tho morning
train day after tomonow."
Dede blushed as she spoke.
"You nre such a hurricane."
"Well, ma'am." he drawled, "I suro
hato to burn daylight. And you nnd I
have burned a heap of daylight. We've
been scandalously extravagant. Wo
might hnvo been married years ago."
