smiled cynically. Then, remembering the
one glimpse he had of Celestla. and her
wonderful look of candor and Innocence,
tho smile fnded from hie face, and its
place was taken by an expression of
anxiety. Just at that moment the door
knob was turned violently this way and
that, and aa suddenly was still again.
Then the sentry heard a voice a woman's
voice a half choked voice, full of fear
and horror that half moaned and half
aald: "D-o-n't! D-o-n't'
Then there was a sound of a heavy
body being dragged away from the door.
The sentry didn't hesitate a moment
He unlocked the door, flung It open and
leaped Into the hallway. He was in time
to see Celestla' heels bump over the
threshold of the parlor door a Tommy,

however, In the least what he expected.
Against the opposite wall stood the
female prisoner laughing. The male
prisoner was nowhere to be seen.
The gallant gentry' lower Jaw dropped
and hung loosely.
Celeatla stopped laughing and came a
step forward, looking the sentry squarely
In the eyes. He had been warned not to
look at her. but he couldn't help blmself.
"I hope you are not going to shoot any
body with that gun."
Then put It down."
He did so.
He approached close to her.
"Will you do me a favorT"
"Yes ma'am." He had to say it
"I want you to wait in this loom In
the most comfortable chair and nut leave
It for an hour. Will you do that?"
The man was completely hypnotised. He
moved languidly to the easiest chair,
seated himself, rrosse4 one leg over the
other and began to rock slow'.y back
wards and forwards.
"Come, Tommy," said Celestis.
They closed the parlor door after them
and slipped cautiously out ot the house.
Hut there waa no need of r.tutlon.
ine piaisorrn aijng t 10 stockade was
lined with Kehr' men, and the atten
tion of these waa engaged with matter
outside the stockade and beyond.
"By George!" exclaimed Tommy. "They
must be expecting an Attack."
They ran aero as the open space to the
main gate of the stockade, and were
halted by a sentry. Fortunately the pass
word of the night before bad not been
changed. Celestla gave It, and asked the
man to open the gate. He had orders to
let no one leave the stockade.
"What, no one!"
He found himself looking Into a pair
of profound eye, that romehoMf or other
seemed to muddle hi brain.
"You must open lt-for roe!"
He hesitated, then turned slowly, and
began to fumble with the somewhat com
plicated fastening of the gate. A few
moment later Tommy and Celestla were
in the open.
About 300 yards distant was the grove
surrounded by a stone wall which Kehr
had not raxed with the reet of the timber.
It was swarming with men.
Celestla turned the color of ashes. And
without a word she darted towards the
grove a fash of she could rim, followed
by Tommy. As they ran Tommy took out
hi handkerchief and waved it above his
head as a flag of truce.
Cries to stop reached them from the
top of the stockade, but they ran on.
"Shall I bring them drwn. sir?"
"No," aald Kehr. "Oa-nn hem!"
Ha fane was convulsed wth rage and
dlsappontment. He saw Celeatle spring
to the top of the atone wall and begin
to apeak to the men who swarmed In
the grove. And hi fury knew no bounds.
But mingled with it was a cold streak of
caution. He had to make but a certain
algnal with his arm, and the men in
that grove, and Ccleatia and Tommy
nd the atone wall and the grove Itself
would fly heavenward in one aaful dis
charge of dynamite; but that signal he
dared not give.
Tommy and Celestla were safe in the
shadow of Gordon Barclay' protecting
"Lilsten to me," Celestla wa crying,
"and believe mo. You've grot to believe
me. You think you atss sheltered here.
The whole grove la mined. One spark of
electricity and you will all be blown to
The men hesitated, and looked at her In
wonder. Tommy came to her aid.
"Do you think Kehr would leave this
covor for your benefit? It' a trap. If
you've got any sense at all, you'll get out
before you are blown out."
Kehr, watching from the stockade, saw
his victims beginning .o escape. They
left the grove In two and threes, sul
lenly but not slowly. Celestla still stand
ing on the top of the wall had turned
and faced the stockade, her hand on
So standing the sun shone full upon
her. and she gleamed with a brightness
and glory that seemed hardly to belong
to this earth.

alway moved him. And In hi flinty
heart was a certain aense of relief. It
would have been horrible to blow so
muny men to pinres dogs and fools
