T" PASS SIGHT, MIS tAlLY COURIER, CONNELLF VILLE, PA- TUESDAY, MARCH ! 1, STER of BY ROY VICKERS CHAPTER L1I. i^npHETf *«y »bout thirty of I them came through. Mrs. Bronnaway," a n a w erod Abromovat iipologetically. "U»vun of them tried to surrender and they think four got away Some of them aro after the four now and expect to get them, a* they were wounded. Shirley turned from him and for a moment thought ahe would fail from the mare. Summoning all her strength of will, she thanked Abrtvmovel and rode back to camp. When she reached camp It was half-past nine. Tho whole battle, in which tne most formidable band of comltudji had been wiped out, had lasted little more than un hour Sh« remembered the machine guns and knew what must lie rovmd the bend out of sight With this in mind, ahe collected a couple of foremen and told them to take all the laborers and »lear the track At the shack Petros ran out to meet her, capering like a wiid Macedonian '"Zeto KynaP' he cried wildly and then, suddenly returning to his role of respectful servant, explained apologetically in French. ''Pardon, Madame, that is but to offer Madame my respectful congratulations " "Is he better then?" demanded Shirley excitedly She had forgotten the battle, Stephanos, Abramovcl, everything but Alan. "But no, madame--" Shirley did not wait. She knew all the romorae of neglected duty as she rushed into the dug-oat. She stared down at his closed eyes and thought that he was sleeping until he moanod. "Alan, Alan, I had to leave you --I could do nothing!" she wailed. "Don't die, Alan--don't die Life is so gorgeous." · · · Before ten o'clock they got AJan into his bed in the shack. As the heat rose ho became restleas, the moaning increased, and more than once she caught the word "wntw." "The mouth may be moistened but he must not drink," warned Petros. "It is horrible but it is not serious, madame." To Shirley it was the most serious thing in the world. She mols- tened'his lipr with a rag dipped in water, then thought of sponging his face and chest. It was a laborious process, for she had to keep him covered with a mosquito net lest the flies ttor- ment him. Petros stood by her till she sent him to rest. Presently, cooled by her bathing, he dropped to sleep. She waited motionless beside him for ten minutes, then crept to her own bed She was dozing when he shouted her name with sudden sharpness. "I'm here, Alan!" she called, and ran to his bedside. "What do you want?" "Shirley!" ha repeated. "Shirley! Get into your dugout!" "It's all right, Alan--there's no need to get into a dugout, it's all over. You'll 'be glad to hear--" She stopped as she saw that he could not hear her He was sitting up in bed, his eyes glassy. She tried to force him back on the pillows and could not. "Thai 1 * oettert" ha rapped out. "They've got no guns and a rifle bullet cnn't possibly got her in the dugout. Now for those Serbians! Coma on. you davils, get out those mules!" She ihuddarvd as she realised that he waa now utterly beyond her control. While he rarcd §h» mechanically tnoistenad hi* lips and sponged him, uncertain whether sn« were doing thu right thing for him, guessing that at any moment ho might sol re her and strangle hor, not knowing oven that she was there. "Slacken fire, Abiamovcl. Ona man in three now, and jtand by to bolt when 1 give the word." With uncanny precision, he wa» going over all the detail* of the battle tta he had planned them-- j.3 she had carried them out. ' "Shirley I" he shouted. "Shirley --you can come out of the dugout. We've won . . . Stbady, you fool, for God's aake don't kiss her. She doesn't want to It isn't love --it's only honor She has paid her debt and she wants to pay It again and again »ut of pride. She'll give anything to be allowed to go on paying. She doesn't love anybody. "Don't kiss her, don't touch her! . . . Shirley, my friend, we've beaten them. Come into the shack and have some food--no, drink--1 am thiraty Water . . . water . water." He sank down into unconsciousness and was still. She went on moistening his lips while her own thoughts stampeded from the wordtt he had uttered. "It isn't love--it'« only honor." He wai confused, oJ' course. In delirium some of the words were sensible and some were not. What did he mean by "it"? Nothing, of course. A delirious raving. Fiercely ghr told htrself that the words meant nothing whatever. He flung himself around in the bed. "Oh, you want me to marry Shirley, too, do you, Cardew? Well, I'm not going to do it. Here's my resignation from the club. I've no moral obligation towards her whatever--she has brought the whole situation upon herself. . You're very clever. Mrs. Sibley, but I'm not going 'o argue with you. . ,| "WHo told you you 1 could call yourself Mrs. Brennaway? And what do you think you're going to gfin by all these little wifely touches? I wigh you wouldn't dust this room. You're throwing the dust all over the pla -e and making me thirsty. Give me some water. The dust is choking me. I'll! give you all the money I hav e f o r some water. Oh, the 'lust--I can't breathe!" He was rising up n the bed and she made the discovery that by crossing her hands over his forehead she could lower him back again. Then with one hand still pressing on the forehead with all the strength she could spare, with the other she continued the battling. For hour after hour, it seemed, her left hand went endlessly to the water bowl, "You're tempting me. . . . Damn you, Shirley, do you think I'm made of steel? . . . Day after day ··in thu same house. Night after night. You're too clover to piny the wanton . . You're breaking me down but I won't touch you, I won't, 1 won't. "She Isn't trying to marry you after all Own up. Be fair to her. You'va miftjudged her all these months and behaved damned dishonorably towards her She wanted to pay her dobt She knows Maurois fixed all that for her find that's why she's aoinf to be a hostage. By God, If thcj hurt her I'll stop th« work and get a thousand Serbians and we"l torture every one of those damned ruts. If they've klllod her I shall go mad! "It was mad of her to coma up here. She musn't stay in the camp. Spoak to her, you fool, and end all this trouble. . No, if you really love her, keep your mouth shut Get away and leave her to normone she can love, without any debt-paying. Don't look at her. Talk about work all the time. . .'1 want a drink." Shirley etarted aa she heard a footstep behind her. It wa* Petros. "He- may be given quinine, as soon as th* heat of the day has passed, madame," he said. "It is nearly four o'clock." "Perhaps we could try it," said Shirley doubtfully "It may stop the delirium." She poured a dose and with difficulty Rot it between his lips. He dropped back, limp, and for a few agnnlr.ed seconds she wondered whether she had killed him, "1 can't nurse him through this --1 don't know enough," ran hei thoilghts. "And Petros doesn't really know anything. And the treatment may be different for Greeks." "Petros, if 1 bring the car into the clearing, can you curry him into it? It's no good going on like this I'm foing to take him down to Salonika and look up a hospital." 'I can carry him madjime," answered Petroa. "But who will drive?" I will drive myself. You come with me in the car until we get out of camp--then hurry back here and tell Abramovel that we decided to go down to see about stores. I shall be back here before dawn." Shirley arrived in Salonika shortly after nightfall, drove to th* hospital and left Alan in the care of a highly com pete tit staff. In the course of that nightmare journey she had seen her whole life and his--had pitced together the fragments of his delirium and solved the mystery of their reJa- iionship daring the fast eight months, Alan had assumed at the start that she wiiihod to marry him without loving nim. He had frequently changed his views later and believed that she wished to give htir- self to him out of pride. It was a pity he should think that, but it was unimportant when compared with th* main discovery that he loved her. Exultation at the knowledge had been check id by the horror of having to stancl by him while, all un- cnowlngly, he was pouring out his most secret thoughts about her. (To B« Continued Tomorrow.)
