Africa. One "runs from Stanley Falls,

Staaleyville, .tnVcity- by the 'falls, and
running from north to south, partly by

never eecurred to me until I met Mr.
,: "I was making the usual , circular
tour, Interlaken, v Scheldegg, Lauter
brunnen, Grindelwald. Mr. WiHoughby
happened to sit next to me at the table
d'hote at the Bear hotel. He was an
athlete; Switzerland to him was sim
ply an immense playground; he spoke
of the trophies he had won at Queen's
fields in the same breath as his ex
ploits in scaling a mountain top. At
first I listened to him with indiffer
ence; his enthusiasm amused me
nothing more. I had supposed that
people climbed mountains simply for
the view; because on the summit one
could see a little further than if one
were merely on the mountain-side.
But as he talked I began to under
stand. It was a game a conflict a
battle if you wish in which one pitted
one's strength and wit in a hand-to-hand
fight with nature.
"Gradually his enthusiasm aroused
mine. I was wearied of sight-seeing;
the horde of tourists disgusted me.
Before we bad finished our cigars I
longed to pluck my first edelweiss; to
play this new game, myself. I hinted
vaguely at dangers, but my companion
laughed at them. I was presumptuous
enough to think that where he led I
"The usual mistake of the tourist, I
believe," commented Miss Brett, cold
ly. "And you begged that you might
go with him on his next climb?"
"At least I was willing enough to do
so when he suggested that He was
planning to make the Stralegg Pass. I
confess that the word 'pass' did not
sound especially formidable, for he de
clared that guides were not at all
necessary. So I agreed to make the
ascent with him. I did not realise that
mountain climbing, more than any
other sport required arduous training.
"The next morning at 11 o'clock we
started from Grindelwald. We were
provided with the customary parapher
nalia of the Alpine climber; but our
climb to the Schwarzegg Club Hut, at
the Upper Ice-fall, where we were to
spend the night might have been
made with walking sticks instead of
alpenstocks. It was for the most part
a simple path over glassy, elopes on
the eastern side of the Lower Grindel
wald Glacier a bypath winding along
"We were aroused the next morning
before it waa light, and I was rather
relieved when two guides, who were
waiting at the hut for a party expected
that day, shook their heads at the
weather, and warned us that it .would
not be safe to attempt the pass atone.
.My companion laughed at their fears.
The heavens were quite clear; the
rtars shone faintly; the moon was
waning; there was no hint of wind or
storm. He assured me that the pro
testa of the guides was a clumsy at
tempt to frighten us into engagiag
their services. They were waiting for
us; it was the usual trick. I accepted
his explanation as plausible enough. 1
was unwilling to disappoint him now
that we bad started; but for the first
time. I felt some misgiving.

over. But the descent waa by far the

WiHoughby by being compelled to halt
repeatedly. The fact is, I waa fright
fully exhausted; though I struggled

waist and followed him."
"Do you wish me to infer that the
boyish confidence of Mr. WiHoughby
led to the tragedy?" Helena asked in
a passionless voice.
"I wish you to infer nothing."
"But you place the blame, at least
tacitly, on one who is dead and cannot
defend himself." she insisted angrily.
"I am sorry you should think so. I
am trying to give you the facts quite
simply the absolute truth."
"I do not wish to wrong you." she
said in a low voice. "I wish to be just
to you, Mr. Haddon."
"Just when I realized that we were
in danger I hardly know. Or perhaps
I should be more honest if I said that
I cannot tell just when I began to feel
afraid. We had climbed cautiously
and slowly around the ledge. Mr. Wil

we rounded this shoulder, a flake of
snow touched my cheek.

I paused. I looked. at her wistfully.
I saw no pity or sympathy in her eyes.
She came from a race of soldiers.
They, too, had suffered and died, and
their honor had been stainless. Why
should she make any allowance for my
suffering and weakness? When all' is
said, weakness to her meant cow

forgotten, that it is not so difficult to
be brave when the danger is a famil

A long silence fell between us. I
looked where the little beacon light
had flickered feebly a few moments
before. It had gone out With an ef
fort. I sought the face of the girl who
sat opposite me.
She had judged. I knew that. She
looked at me as if I were a being
apart, of another world. By my own
confession I had shut myself out of
her world. The man who had loved
her loyally had died as the strong peo
ple of her race had died. That proud
fact supported her. For her I existed
no longer. She gathered her skirts
about her. She inclined her head
slightly. She was going out of my
life. She had uttered no spoken re
proach. But her look, her every
movement, echoed the verdict of the
map who was dead.

whom I had spoken since the tragedy.
Had she loved WiHoughby, it would
have been hopeless to expect any sym
pathy from her. She would have felt
toward me a lifelong hatred.
But she did not love WiHoughby. It
was merely a sense of duty that had
urged her to seek from me my story.
Perhaps she wished to tell it to his
bereaved parents. It wa3 to be a sort
of reparation owed to the memory of
the man who had loved her.
She had judged me without emo

no words of reproach or anger. She

would haunt me as no spoken word of

least she should speak, though it were
