CHAPTER XXIV Toatinned.
A pheasant roared up from a clump of
chinkapins, while I was still some paces
distant. The bird's wlldnens was beyond
the ordinary It must recently have been
disturbed. The ground here was harder
than usual In the Barrens, and I could find
tio trace of hoof prints, but the pheasant's
flight made me keep on hopefully.
A couple of hundred yards further on,
a growth of snaky brnrs ' scored deep
cratches across my boom I dismounted,
getting some unpleasant stabs for my
pains, and searched about among the
brambles. It was as I had hoped I dis

the coast as I had learned from Sam's
directions there was but one spot whither
ha would be likely to go. The bay line
(or ten miles north and south was a wilder
ness of salt marshes and devious water
channels. At two points only, rtdrea of
pine-crowned loam thrust firm fingers Into
the bay. On of these ridges ended In Lost
Hollow. The other It had no name by
Sam's account was the place where Per

It was no easy matter picking a way
through a forest without a trail and
through a country strange to me, but at
last I led my horse up the ridge. At sight
of me, a bluejay perched In a solitary hick,
ory began to utter Its taunting cry. The
challenge was answered by a sevtea of dis
cordant notes notes that no bird not even
a bluejay could have fathered.
Jerry, his back toward ni. was sitting
on a fa) leu pine, replying In kind.
"Is. ya. al I hear o', V ole tomcat.

I wasted no time with him. "Where is
she?" I demanded.
"Jest ovah the 'neck, sah" he replied.'

I added my roan to the two horses he
was already holding and hurried across the
ridge. Kerrlts was standing at the very
edge of river bank, her hand at her eyes,
looking over the water. There was little
or no wind, and the sunlight sparkled back
from a bay as smooth as glass. So Intent
was she that, although my eyes had at
first been aH for her, they were forced to
follow the direction of her gaze.

She was not humble, as I had a right to

to defy me. I caught her wrist with a
temper quite as high as her own.
"By Heaven, madam. You shall live
upon my bounty for as long as I like."
For a moment she faced me, frowning.
All at once she bid her face In her hands.
"Oh!" she wailed. "Oh, If my mother
could be her!"
I waa In a passion of regret. "Cousin!

sank back Into cover.
I held Ferrlss from me, and looked at
her long so long that the hopelessness In
my eyes grew Into her own, and the red
of her cheeks turned (-lowly to white.
"Ferrlss," I said thickly.
"les," she whispered. "What Is It?

I stepped a pac from her, and drew a
paper from my breast the hand-bill pro

"Read that! Then look look at me!"
When she had read, she gazed at me un
comprehendlngly. "Do you understand?" I said dully.
"It describes a man who must look ridi
culously like you. But what has such a
resemblance to do with -"
"A resemblance!" I said, my tone dreary
beyond all hope. "Miss Dayton, 1 are Tom
"No, no! I'm not Henry Morvan. I'm
an Impostor! I'm Tom Bell the man who's
published her Ob. I've fooled all the
world, and could laugh at It, but I can't
persuade myself to fool you any longer."
She - made an Inarticulate sound.
"Listen," I went on. "I'm gently born and
bred, and my family was well known In
East Jersey, years ago. But I was left
on orphan at 16, with nobody but a guar

say I wasn't guilty every felon says as

was pardoned. I was sent out of the state
with orders never to return. I was
"A boy a little boy!" N
"In the west I met Henry Morvan the
real one. We grew to be great friends.
He died In my arms of prairie fever two
months since. I cam here. I Intended
only to give th proofs of his death to his
lawyers, then to go Into hiding is the
marsh islands. Then I saw you, and the
world changed for me,"
"And for me," she said.
"I've played the vllllaln, but Henry Mor
van told me that Brum was the heir. . In
his last Illness, he'd forgotten you and
your father. Morvan lamented to in that
Bram should Inherit the property. When
I took Morvan's name I dldn t dream of
harming anyone but Bram. Afterward, 1
found it was you, but I couldn't give it
up It and you."
She made a sudden peremptory gesture,
"l'ou! Tom Bell, the hlghwuyman? 1
don't believe It!"
Again I put my hand to my breast.
"You've seen the picture of Henry Mor
van's father, in the library In the manor
house? Then look at this one of Henry
Morvan himself." I thrust a miniature
into her fingers. "Compare that with your
recollection of his father's picture then
compare both with me."
She stared at the miniature. The face ot
a young man smiled gravely up at her
a face like mine at first glance, yet upon
closer Inspection, very different.
I saw incredulity change to wonder as
she gazed. Then wonder grew to fear, and
fear to conviction. And then I could look
no more, but stood with hanging head.
After what seemed a long time, I felt a
timid hand upon my arm. "Dear I don't
"Oh, you may be Tom Bell a name's

"Ferrlss! Your saying that will always

"You know I don't. Stay, and be the

"No," I said. "I love you too well Ho
At that moment Link's voice, very low
and penetrating, sounded from the thicket.
Ferrlss faced the sound, her eyes wide.
"What Is it, Link?" 1 demanded.
"Four men, with guns, comin' up the
'neck.' Too quiet about It. Saw 'am
fresh caps on, too. Looks bad."
Apathy a dreary Indifference held me
