tho dog, whoso head was down upon

oyes on his moater with so much con

tho work, Sabron walked across tho

"It Is Just as I thought," ho told
Pltchouno. "I took you Into my llfo,

Tho olllcor found tho houso full of

playing a violoncello. Thoro was n

Miss Itedmond stood to sing and choso
tho little song of which ho had mndo
a lullaby, and sang it divinely, Sab
ron, his hands clasped behind his back
nnd his head a llttlo bent, still looking
nt hor, thought thnt his heart would
break. It was horrlblo to go away and
not toll her. It was cowardly to fool
so much and not bo nblo to speak It.
And ho felt that ho might bo equal
to somo wild deed, such as crossing
tho room vlolontly, putting his hnnd
over her Blonder ono and saying:
"I am a, Boldlcr; I havo nothing but a
soldier's llfo. I am going to Africa
tomorrow. Como with mo; I want you.
All of which, slightly Impossible and
quite out of tho question, nevertheless
charmed and soothed him. Tho words
of her English song, almost barbaric
to him becnuso Incomprehensible, fell
on his oars Its molody was already
part of him

d'Escllgnnc, "you aro going nwuy to

winter garden where tho sunlight
camo In through trellises nnd tho
perfume of tho warmed plants was
heavy and sweot. Hefore them flowed
tho Hhono. golden in the winter's light.
Tho bluo river swept its wnves nround
old Tnrascon and tho battlements of
King Heno's towers.

From within tho salon camo the

d'Escllgnac wna rolling townrd them

room. Aa though Sabron realized that
ho might nover seo this lovely young

seo her, and wanted beforo ho left to
have something mndo clear, ho asked
"Could you. Mademoiselle, in a word

Sho Hushed nnd laughed slightly.
