A beautiful young girl sat at an
open window gazing out upon a gar
den redolent with lilac bloom. Her
hands were clasped, her eyes Ilxed
upon the full moon sailing on la silver
state, her soul's thoughts going forth
to her lover at the other end of the
She was, Agnes Norton, and tho "per
son upon whom her heart centered
was Wade Latham, author and art
ist. Once ho had been a law reporter,
and quite Incidentally hud acquired In
formation upon which rested the vital
Issues of the great Norton will case.
The Norton family rose or fell on tho
final decision upon that noted litiga
tion. It was natural on account of this
that Agnes and Wade should meet.
It was just as natural that they
The Norton case would not come
up for a year. Wade had an offer
from a publication to Invade central
China anil bring back something new
from pen and pencil to give to the
world. Success In this effort mean:,
further, a recognition by tho Academy
of Design. It was a great commission
for a young man and Wade ambitious
ly understood Its execution.
A year bail nearly gone by. Agnes
had not heard from her lover for near
ly three months. The will case came
up In thirty days.
She pictured lilin among great tem
ples', far extending mountain chains,
amid splendid pageants of richly
garbed mandarins only the glare and
glitter of a vast empire tilled her mind.
At that very hour the man she loved
was at the crisis of his life a lone
figure amid a lonely, lonely scene. Ho
crouched behind tho figure of an Idol
In a Chinese burial ground, pale.
Thousands of miles from civilization,
a friendless hunted fugitive, he was
lurking In this forlorn retreat, cling
ing with n natural love of life to a
mere thread of hope.
He drew further Into the shadow of
his refuge as he made out two forms
approaching. Then at a glanco he
made out friends, and spoke to them.
Both tho new comers wero Mongoli
ans. One poorly dressed advanced,
kotowed humbly to Wade, and even
kissed bis feet reverently, gratefully.
"See," be said, ailslng and waving
his companion forward as though he.
wero some supremo person "it Is the
high one of our family Kwang Lo."
Wade welcomed the lithe, erect
young man Introduced. There was a
Unlet dignity that attracted.
"I am the sacrllb e," he said simply.
"The sacrifice':" repeated Wade In
"It Is so," was the quiet reply. "It
Is you who a month since found the
mandarin at tho home of my kins
man. He was, about to ,be beheaded
for an Infringement of the law.'' It

Wade well remembered tho circum
stances. Sheer pity for tho unfortu
nnto family had, Indeed, Induced him
to part with nearly all his surplus
stock of money.
"Slnco then," continued Kwang Lo,
"the evil mandarins, thinking you had
money, have Imprisoned you In the
hopes of winning the bribe ransom
you could not pay. Last night my
kinsman here enabled you to escape
from Jail. They will seek you every
where. They have sent for me, the
high one of the family, to get ou be

"But I hae no means to plir-uo my
Journey fioni Bclro to Canton," sag
"They shall be provided," quietly as
sured Kwang Lo. '
True to bis promise Kwang Lo re
appeared shortly with a two-wheeled
pushcart holding a close wicker box
top. Across this was a broad sheet
of Immboo bearing some Chinese let
ters In bright vermilion.
In an Instant Wade knew what this
meant. The royal sign manual was
alwavs written with a veriblllon pen
cil. Within that wicker covert Wade
Latham was conveyed to Belro. When
It was opened he found himself In tho
rear room of a Chinese pawnshop.
Kwang Lo had disrobed to the waist.
Encircling hlni was a band of gold,
heavy and unbroken, bearing native
characters. There was some talk be
tween him and the keeper of the shop.
Then money passed, and Kwang Lo
came forward and placed In Wade's
hand a sum equal to two hundred
"I have agreed to remain here the
slave of the shop keeper until I ant
redeemed," said Kwang Lo. "The
family circlet, sacred for generations
surely my family will not allow It to
pass to others at my death 1 But that
.Is naught to you. I am the sacrifice
1 glory In thus doing for the man who
saved my kinsman!"
Thnt sublime sacrifice was first In
the thoughts of Wado Latham when
he landed on American soll.As quick
ly as bo could reach his friends more

Kwang Lo and his family talisman
was transmitted to BeJro to make of
him a free man.
