Jerry, CHAPTER Vllt JERRY went inlo (he public room and sought out Mr.'U'oby, Ihe innkcopei'. "I'd like you to make out Die bill for myself and my cousin, Miss Cliclscy," he said, "We're leaving by the Dover coach in the ir\orning." "Sit down and rtvink an ale on (lie house/' Mr. Toby incited. "1 counl none loo fast." Jerry acccj)led Hie offer and sat clown at a '.able near the door, and when Mr. Toby had made ont the bill lie brought it there, accepting Jerry's money and making out a receipt. The host liacl no sooner retired than Jcjry Whit field found liirrj- selt with a companion. A large fellow with n batlcrcd face and torn car, very unpleasant to sec, came into the room from out of doors. He was wearing a hackney driver's uniform and he sat down beside Jerry without invitation. After Jerry had finished his ale the man spoke to him. "It be a pleasant evening, sir, I'm sure." "Yes," replied Jerry absently. His thoughts were with Polly above stairs. 11 was Ihcn Dial Hie bewildering thing happened. A young woman came in from the sheet and loolccd aroiiud the room uncertainly. She was Ihe woman in the blue bonnet who had waved to Jerry. She was looking for someone, 'and H surprisingly tin-nod out lo he the man at Jerry's table who was drinking grog. "Oil, there you are!" she said to the man in an imperious way. "I told yov. to wait in the hack! What do yon mean by going off and leaving your vehicle this way, to drink grog in a tavern?" "M'am?" replied the cabby thickly. Tlie young woman's face Hushed and she stamped her foot with impatience. "Haven't you any feeling of responsibility for a passenger whca you get one?" "Jerry stood up. "Can I be of some service, M'nm?" he asked. The young woman looked at him and her face hghled in a quick smile. "Oh, it's you! flow comical! How awfully comical!" "Why -is it?' 1 Jerry asked, puz- ;lcd and embarrassed. "Because 1 saw you on the street in hour agcr-a,n<l mistook you for friend of mine, <i lieutenant in His Majesty's Navy. { waved al yon as brazen us could be, ii|i(i you ,ookod surprised. Thpre was a girl witli you, such a tall pretty thing, and she was nonP too pleased, I noticed." Tho strange young woman laughed so contagiously hat Jerry joined in. Up said to her Ihen, "This man seems to have too much rum under his skin. I'd belter find you anplher chaise." She considered this for a mo- menl. "No. Wait. All my parcels lire in this fellow's hack. Couldn't we sober him up?" "We ca,n Ivy," 'Jerry replied. He went to the barmaid and asked ii?i : 'to get H mug of strong coffee from lh£ kitchen. "Noi get three cups," he !idde;j, thinking he could do very well with some cotTce himself and probably the young woman would feel tlie some way. * n 3 'THE coffee sobered the cabby A remarkably. He seemed lo remember his responsibilities as soon as he had downed it. 'Do you tliink he's all right now?" the girl asked'Jerry. 'Yes. I'll put you in the hack," Jerry said, offering her his arm. He was still thinking of Polly, and how a thing like this must never happen to her. And so it was that the young woman in the sky-tine bpnnct and the shy-blub dress that was cul square at the neck walked out of th'c Unicorn ;inij Crown Tavern on tho arm of the American seaman, Jeremiah Whitfield, whom she had been paid to dupe. Her name was Mazic Miller Cor so she had called herself on the stage) nnd lier Ipve of money frequently got the better of a natively soli heart. She had been a fairly good singer in the music hails before she married the owner of (he Sheaf of' \Vhcat Tavern that stood on the edge of town on ti'e road to Plymouth, nnd she'd not lost her looks or her fetchin ways. She was devoted to her husband, a gross handsome fellow with a grasping nature; she not only aided him by serving as barmaid of liis tavern but by hiring out as a lure for the press-gangs as well. "But only in the more genteel cases," she woiilti tell yrfii.',' Well, Mazie admitted,! Ihii! '\v?s a genteel case and rio Jeremiah Whitfield was a gentleman and there was no need al all to pvit him'in his place. She smiled up at him impersonally, ;md sajd; • 'This is mighty good of you, sir. I just wish my husband could thank you personally. . . . Where's' the huck, Cubby? I'm r.o turned around I 'can't remember where it was I got out of it." "Dpwn Ihis'Wiiy," the man said. "What? Down that side street?" Jerry said, "You wait here, Mrs. Smith. I'll fetch the rig lo you." "Oh, no," she answered hastily. : Just take me to it. That will save time." t t t HE street was dark, so surpri;- v ingly dark that Jerry WliiHiefd J commented on il. "London's a ' poorly-lighted city, it seems lo me." "Sometimes thp sperm oil gives out in a lamp," the girl said, "and then the lighters have lo go fetch more. . . . You're not a Londoner I take it, Mr.—Mr.—" "Wliilfleld. No, Ma'am. I'm used to smaller places." The driver walked to the rear of, the liafkney coach. To the crouching figure ho encountered there lie spoke ji' few hissing words out of the sjde of his mouth. Mazie Miller knew what went n there, and her heart revolted. There was yet time to. save lllis •vind, blundering young man who lad risen to her distress as a. fish •iscs lo b;iit. She thought ot Ilia jirl who had been with him today n the park and on the bridge— .he tall' pretty creature who evidently loved him with all her leart. . . . No! she would not think of that girl! Slip would think only of the five pounds that this busi- icss would yield her and that she could proudly take home to hct'"'> Husband. ' , It was thought of this unworthy mate of I\crs that brought Mazic to earth and Hirned her again into a woman of business. She' pretended to grope (or the hack step. \Vhile Jerry 'was pointing"H o»l to her, the croiiching figure back of tha hack moved, / in a caulious orbit through" the' darkness and closed in on him. . . A cudgel wrapped sparsely in rags came down on Jerry 'Whit- riold'.i head from the rear and he- crumpled without knowledge of. what bad happened. Never did man lose consciousness with so little concern for himself. But through the confusion of his mind, before utter darkness engulfed him, there passed ihe terrible meteoric thought of Polly Chelsey waiting for him . . . waiting ... : ."A fine job, Miss!"''the torn- eared man said to.Mazic,,. "Hush!" she sobbed : furiously, "and give me my money!
