they sta'n. ott together, to meet with a
wreck. Miss Tabor Is stunned and Crosby,
assisted by a strange woman passenger,
restores her, finding all nor things save
a slender golden ohaln. Crosby searches
tor this and finds. It holds a wedding
ring. Together they go to the Tabors',
where father and mother welcome the
daughter, calling her "Lady," and give
Crosby a rather strained greeting. Cir
cumstances suggest he stay over night,
and he awakens to find himself locked in
his room. Before ho can determine the
