"They've found it" said the mayor, picking up his oars and turning' the i boat toward the hotel. It was midnight when the sides of \ J he craft rubbed Its sister boats at r Mine Host's dock. The mayor and ' the girl crept softly up the winding pathway, toward the hotel. Suddenly, In the nioonlight ahead, the form, of a woman appeared! advancing \o meet them. The mayor and the girl saw her'simultaneously. He stopped ih- stantly with a restraining hand upon the giri'i arm. "9uickl" he commanded, springing in front of his companion and turning 1 her about face.

Pulling a cigar from his pocket, the mayor scratched a match on the EO 1 «5 ofiiTs shoe and blew a puff of smoke at the same target which earlier in the evening he had failed to jiit with his leaden missile. The woman rounded the comer and came directly toward hira. "I beg your pardon.

I do not desire to appear selfish in your eyes, but I find your duty pleases me greatly," bowing again. "Now, the moonlight—" Tbe "Judge" made a deprecating gesture.
