She had ceased to attempt to free. hersell, but there was tension in her attitude. He sensed a very definite resistance in her, and braced himself t0 "°A^TrigAt?" he said again. "Wasn't it--because of that? "Perhaps," she said in a whisper. !"But-- but, Tiggie -" He stopped her. "You neednt make any more objections, because that's the main point with me too at the present moment. I'm asking you to put yourself in my care-- to trust me Viola, can't you do that? "How can I?" she whispered as if frightened. "I have no--claim up- OI1 "Ybu have a claim," he declarec sturdily "Just as much claim as anybody shipwrecked has upon any passing craft. I simply refuse to eave you here to sink, so it's no use Diking." She uttered a sigh of complete weariness. "I don't know what to iay to you," she said. "You needn't say anything," said Tiggie. "Just trust me, that's all, and let me pull you out of these stormy seas! Come, is there any- hing wrong with that?" She sighed again. "I've tried--so hard--to keep away from you," she said. "But it's no use. This mom- mg--when I saw you calling here-I simply ran for my life. I didn t think you'd seen me. I never thought you'd lie in wait for me, or rd never have come back." "That just shows the uselessness of attempting it," said Tiggie. "Now promise me you won't run away again!" _.. She bowed her head on her breast. "There's nowhere to run to--but the river," she said. "Don't talk like that!" commanded Tiggie with authority. "You're in mv keeping now, remember, and I'm going to see you through. That's un- erstood, isn't it?" He tried to look into her downcast face. "I shall play the game--and so must you. Viola romise me!" She clasped her hands together with a wrung gesture. "All right,' He said." ? ."' -'· There was exhaustion in her voice and attitude. He saw that from heer'physical weakness her resistance was failing, and the wonder rossed his mind if perhaps he had Tied her too far as it was. Very fently he set her free. "Well, remember," he said--"remember that you've promised! And now tell me, when can I see you "Oh I don't know," she said. "I ought not--to see anybody--without ?hilip knowing." Til call in and tell him tonight then," said Tiggie. She started in quick agitation at that "Oh no--oh no, you mustnu Please--not that! Tiggie, please!' "My dear, it's all right," he said. "Don't be frightened! I shan't do anything against your will But why shouldn't I see him? Wouldn't it be best?'* "No " she said--"no!" She pressed a hand to her lips as if to still their trembling. "Please don't think of it. I couldn't bear it. No! If you really want to see me again--after you've thought it all over--I'll meet you out on the heath any evening you like- after dark." "Bring a suitcase with you then! said Tigie practically. "I'm^ going to take you away from here." She looked at him with startled eyes. "Oh, but--if I go, I can never T--come back." "I'm going to take you away from here," he repeated firmly. "And that's all we need discuss. We'll go down to Spot--at Fame in Cornwall. They're wanting you. You'll be happy there." "I don't know--if I can," she said wistfully. "Yes," said Tiggie with great decision. "You do--you can. And we'll start at once--tonight." "Oh, I don't know." She still ooked at him, a piteous doubt in her eyes. "Aren't you making--a great mistake?" she said. "My dear," said Tiggie quietly, ·that's my affair, not yours. I'm only asking you to trust me. And you needn't meet me on the heath. I shall be at this garden gate with a taxi at 10 o'clock, and if you are not there I shall come straight in and fetch'you--Philip or no Philip. Is that understood?" "Oh, what can I possibly say? she said, as one too hard pressed to battle further. "Simply say you'll be there!" said Frank Merriwell at Yale On the Job By BurtL.

But I shall do as I have said. And you--I can count on you, can I? Come, Viola! You're not afraid of me?" "Afraid"--she said--"of you!' And suddenly, as if she could not help it, she held out both hands to him. Oh, don't you see it's you I'm trying to ·, ave --not--not myself?" The tears that she had not shed before welled into her eyes. Tiggie took the trembling hands into his warm, comforting hold. "That's all right--that's all ngnt, he said "I know. I understand. But don't you worry! I'm much better at looking after myaelf than you think, so we won't bother any more about that. Now everything's settled, isn't it? You'll be at the garden gate close by here at 10 tonight. I can count on you for that?" "Oh, yes." Her surrender was complete when it came; it was evident that she could hold out no longer "I'll do whatever you wish. It's no good trying to do anything else. "You're quite right," agreed Tig- E ie cheerfully. "It isn't. That's the most sensible observation youve made since we met. Well then, goodby for the present! And don t get downhearted as soon as my back's turned. Everything's going to be o. k." She smiled at him wanly. Peri haps--some day--I may be able to do something for you," she said. Tiggie smiled back at her, his open, kindly smile. "Who knows? Perhaps you may!" he said. "I begin to see light," said Harvey. He leaned back in his chair in a quiet corner of a restaurant and looked at Tiggie aslant. "Well you'd never have caught her if il hadn't been for me. She didn't want to meet you at all." . "I know she didn't," said Tiggie. "Bolted like a shot rabbit at the sight of you, just as she was going in at the gate," pursued Harvey. "She'd have got away too if I hadn t been pretty nippy. I followed her all the way down to the river where she took refuge on a seat and stayed there for ages, just peering round now and then to see if you were anywhere near. Luckily she didn't think me worth bothering about. I didn't come too close naturally. But she's the same girt"-an odd gleam came into his eyes--"you were quite right, Tiggie-she's the same girl as vou saw on those canvases. Jade -or ·Aquamarine'? I think-'Aquamarine.'" "I think so too," said Tiggie quietly He spoke with that new reserve which of late had grown upon him. His look was- fixed, as though it rested upon something beyond Harvey's faun-like countenance. But the latter was by no means disconcerted thereby. "A curious little bit of thistledown," he commented. "The sort that never comes to rest anywhere! Are you sure you've got her now?" "Yes," said Tiggie. "And what are you going to do with her?" asked Harvey, frankly Tiggie's look did not alter. He made answer as one who spote to himself. "I am going," he said, to marry her." Harvey made a slight movemen of surprise. "My dear chap, is that necessary?" Tiggie's eyes came to his so sud denly that they seemed to strike sparks in the process, but Harvey was Harvey, and in a moment he smiled, "Yes, you old heathen, it is," he said. "Because one man has let a woman down, does it follow that--" "Are you sure it's only one?" interrupted Harvey. "No, hear me out before you strike me! Remember, I came across her long before you did. I saw--" Tiggie leaned forward and overbore his reminiscences with sheer weight. "I don't care a damn what you saw," he said. "It simply doesnt interest me. The chances are you saw double. You often do." Harvey uttered an involuntary laugh, "No, not on that occasion!" he protested. "But I see that the candid friend is as superfluous as usual so I'll say no more. Only marriage is rather an extreme mea- ure. Can't you play the fairy god- ather for a bit while you mark ime?" "No," said Tiggis somberly. ·There's been too much of that already."
