He added In «n odd voice: "Perhaps I deserved all I got Anyway, I believe she was a martyr." • . i "A martyr to anarchy 1" "But still a martyr to what she considered right" "Steady, Dan." said Hunt. "You're getting morbid. Come along to the pit today. There's something.stirring in Bummer wheat. It'll wake you up; make yon your old self again." "No use, Harry. I'm finished with speculating." "You talk like a hns-been! Why, you're just starting in life. You've got 1o do something. A man like you can't loaf. What's it going to be?" , "Giving to others." I Hunt jerked his head impatiently. "I i wean what business, what line? You've' got some big thing "up your sleeve, Dan^ Out with it" • . Daniel dabbled his fingers in a Sn- jrer-howl. While drying them on a jQiipkm, the vertical lines appeared sharply between his brows. He lighted a cigarette. He shoved his chair back, stood up. "Henceforth 1 am going to take my happiness in my own way. I learned bow at daybreak this morning. I am lolngto give, gJve, give. And I won't stop giving until, the.last cent is gone." "Dan, !• believe you've gone crazy." :"And I. beHey.e;" said the secretary, • .his .Bible on. occasion, "that Mr. FJtzrandolph...shows. a. very keen wisdom.

"It's anonymous, has n?ithec ..beginning nor end—" He looked "suddenly at the envelope, then; with an apology, handed the message to his. employer. "I.didn't notice .it. It's marked 'personal.'" One glance at the sheet of notepaper, and Daniel sank into his chair. With his strong flngers he pinned the note to the table, breathing rapidly through dilated nostrils. Hunt, sitting -next to him, recalled afterward that It was the only time in. all the years he had known him thdt he had ever seen the man's hand tremble. Daniel looked up. stared blankly a moment at the two silently Questioning faces. His lip quivered slightly. "Boys, I've received startling news. Tve changed my mind about giving everything away. I'll go. ahead with those houses. But I'll go a little saner. Jn a little saner manner, you understand. And, boys, I am going to do that big thing!" He sprang up. "Jonas! Call a giod livery stable. I want their best saddle horse at twelve sharp. Craig, make an appointment for tomorrow morning with Stanley Graham, ihe architect 'Phone for the head barber, downstairs, Jonas.

Her gloved hand- toyed nervously with, her riding crop. Her heart pounded against her side.

He was an hour early— Now she could hear the' rhythmic thud of the hoof-heats. They were coming with break-neck speed. Louder and nearer, louder and nearer, louder and nearer— -A form shot past. Her heart leapt to her throat. Then the scuffle of a horse checked in a headlong gallop, swiftly return- Ing sounds, and the archway wns darkened by a broad-shouldered, athletic man astride a heaving, sceed. " His age sat lightly upon him. He looked much younger than he wsis. He had swept off his hat. and his thick black hair, matted damply sigainst his forehead, showed never a trace of gray. He was distinguished rather j (han good-looking, and the skin of his newly—and wholly—shaven face was us fresh, as clear, and as glowing us her own. Stirring within the mind? of these two, who had beyond question proved their love for one another, who had known sorrow and bitterness and despair, who had traveled years to' reach this moment, treading a long circle to fuse it at last, were—who shall say what thoughts and emotions?
