She was trembling with fear, not an animal for hor own person but deep moral fear. It was tier sense of civilization that was outraged. Her imagination was trying to envi: ape tho irreconcilable.

"Madario would do well to eat and then sli i-p." The Greek's words made her suddenly consciovss of h p r phys-iml sarroardinjjs.

For a minul« would be motto ilens; then it wonld move a doaen or so feet in one direction and t ten back again. As she watched, Alan's words came back to he ·: "Sometimes they dance ffke sa^ i« n s, only worse. . . . " Shirley i nderstood now. In the dance was he hideous animal outline that liar shocked her when Abramove) hao sprung upon his comrade. It w w the dance of a people whose roiigion is blood. And she wn» ulone with them in the tiearl of the mountains. She was seit i with acute physics) terror, nni naginablv maimed, whilo they dam ed round h»T. A b r u p t l y , thi inonient of panic "They vrill It ive tne alone until Alan conic? back," ran her honphtfi.

She wiin'Uid o rur down to the camp and wait s train »d her. One by one, the lorries lurched and si-aggvred over the miev«n track. There were twelve or them this time--the first four loaded with men, some fifteen to a lorry --the remainder, she suppo»ed, contained supplies and equipment. I,nat c,f all came Alan's car and ont of it stepped Alan. SThe sa* him Icok towards the shack and »he stood ontaide and waved. H« wavod back and immediately turned to the men by tha lorrien. The minutes "passed while gho watch*d and waited for him to com*. She lost sight of htm in th« hive of activity round the lorries. . , . "Why should he bother to- come up to the shack?" she naked herself. He could see thnt she waa ai] right when she waved to him. Theve was a lot of work for him to do nnd it would be an idle. formality to come all thnt way merely to ask how she had gvt on with t h s brigands--whether she had been frightened or subjected to any indigrnity. i Suddenly «he saw him on horseback, coming toward* her-- -^alfop-' in«. As he neared the shuck, h* bellowad for Potros, who leaped out oi lh« kitchen quarters and to-ok his horse. i As Alan dismounted, she shrank irurtinctively bnck against tho door of the shack, for there hnn'i come to hei tha ridicaloun fancy that he was going- to touch her. H« stood boiore h«r, a little out of breath, and for « moment neither spoke. · "How go«» it?" His tone was balanced, friendly -- had been ao danger of his touching;' nor. i "Non* th« worw," she ajwnrered with t, amH«. "Except that I've b««n borod to death." , "Are you going to stay here now? he asked. The words oiectrifiwl her. Before he had threatened to rcrnovo her from the camp by force.
