It WAB perfectly evident that this Wrexham was no virginal voting man, either. Wrexham betrayed MnisBlf often, perhaps irom carelessness Perhaps it wao the refinement, the silver and glans and wine, that worked on him.

Philbrick roso and went to n de«k in ono corner. Hero ho moved a Cftudlo closer, and eat down to write out a telegram. Just to his rinlrt. was tho cns&oE jeweled orders and decorations. AfAer a minute he. looked up and Jerked his head. "Come over here, eap'n." "The seaman obeyed. When ho [walked, it was with the peculiar B UI O sway of ono who seti* his weight; against the swinging heave of a dec*, feeling tho ground as he treada it. Philbrick handed him the tele-gram. "You'd better read It. But first, look here—" Aa he »]ioTte Philbrick loosened a hook on one side of the oape of orders. Hetiwung the case out'from the wall, like a door. Behind 1t was revealed a safe set In the wall. "Everything's in there," he Bald calmly. "Money and family Jewels and paiiers." "Eh? What d'yo mean?" Wrexham 's voice was startled. The door openod. Uncle Neb appeared, carrying a rifle and a small (trip. Philbrlek came to his leot aud held out hia hand to "Wrexham. He wa» laughing; slleirtly. "Good-"bye, "Wreshcm! Bead the telegram. I 'll leave, now, I'll perhaps be abl« to send a message to you in^a few days—luck to you!" "Wrexham, astonished, shook hands. Philbrlek turned to the old darky. "You'll hoar from me later, uncle. Now give mo the cartrflSgos, please, sir! Thanks. I'm oT£ to the "brakes. While I'm gone, Cap'n Wroxham will bo in charge. Understand. He'll look after things until Miss Aline gets back. "Wrexham! Young Maoarty may show up with the sheriff. If ho does, look out! Tjhore 'B a brief note inside tho desk, placing you in authority here—you may need it. Good night." Philbrick turned to the door, and his great figure vanished. Uncle Neb followed him, antl the door slummed. Wrexham was left clone in the room, a picture of blank astonishment, starig after them. Presently he recollected the telegram iu his hand, and glanced at it. Hs> seemed to "wakou from bis daze with a start. "The devil!" ho cried out prolest- ingly. Then he realized there was none to hoar his protest. "Why, the old scoundrel! He's a slick un and no mistake. Worked me, he did—worked me like a blasted fool!" A note of admiration crept into Ills voice. "I'll be d—d! IV the old vRjitui didn't go away and leave me in charge-me, mind you!"-. He stood cazlns around .the dim room as though unable to" comt >rolie;id It. Thrusting the telegram ii to his pocket, he went to the center table. There-he took a cigar from the open box, bit off the end, and returned to the dosk. He dropped into the chair before it, and held tho cawllu to his' cigar. Then he leaned back and surveyed the room again. A snuggle was iu his face. "This is a rum go, a rum go!" he exclaimed roughly. "Fancy this, now: What ud old Hvarson Bay to tills, eh! What utl anyone say wbo knew me?" Presently he rose a«aiii and back to the fireplace. He stood there, hia feet planted wide apart, and stared hard at tho enlarged photograph of the girl on tho mantel. It gazed down at htm from wide gray eyes, crystal- clear. The struggle deepened iu hia face. His brows drew down as he looked at the picture. I wonder if that old rascal realized RIBBON AND EMBROIDERY TRIM FROCKS Rlbuou, embroidery aud l-ace are U.M uses! to decorate this eeaeen'G gowns.

Out in the bayou rode 1 tho schooner of Captain Wrexham, j her riding lights dotted against tho , ubscurily. The plantation house was , entirely lighted by caudles- not even , a lump anywlifro, for old ways clung close. Sconces, mostly of solid silver, were everywhere. In tho dining room ths two men partook of a dinner whloh would have , driven iOpicunia mad with desire. ! Crab bisque, turtle, veiBilori, bayou j oystors—a dozen things wch as can i be had In combination only from | Louisiana cooks. And all tho while ! the two men were studying each other, as they luid dono for days past, ever •luce "vVrexbaau'B arrival hore. John Philbrick was a tremendous man, browed and hem-ded like the "Mosos" of Mleholauge'k), thawed in proportion. The gray, Bhuggy beard :i a niiiu a debt, d'ye see?

Two men and a woman, tlo-y were. I went away from there in n hurry, I can tell you! Didn't know 'em. 'never Baw '&m before or since. licit a bad taste Just the same." The jerky spfcech was followed by silence. Suddenly Wrexham went on, Iblcklug aloud: "I'll make it up some day," he «akl thoughtfully. "Only I've never had the chance. And I've been looklrK for one, off and on" "Come in cm this deal," offered I'hilbrlck, watching Intently. "You l;no*v the odds. You know the situation here. If they get me who's to watch out for tie girl? Nobody. Throw iu with me." Wrexham smiled sardonically. "Not me! You can run your own blessed show. And I don't want to mix up with your friend Mucarty; dou't like his looks, I've got enough enemies now, without taking on more." His eyes went insolently to the troubled gaze of old Philbrick . He seemed to bristle against some offer which tempted him, yet which he was resolved to reject. Philbrick sighed, and rose. "Come along to the library. Uncle Neb! Bring out coffee and cigars." The old darky followed them with the thick cieule coffee aud a box of cigars •'Into the library. Hero smoldering fire in tho great fireplace banished tho damp chill of evening. The two men settled into deep chairs. "Confounded pretty face!" said Wrexham. Ho was staring at an enlarged photograph which stood on the auuntol. "Most amuzin' fuoo, thut!" Philbrick merely grunted. He seldom betrayed In -words the poetic urge #hat was In him. Bomotlmoa it came forth Iu deeds, but ho ohranjt-"from talking of It.

"I wish now that 1 hadn't killed that big black." he tvuld. "They'd like nothing better than to get mo off the place long enough—" "Ain't you got the right to protect your own homo and life?" sniffed Wrexham. "lt'-.c not that," Philbrick frowned. 'Macarty' owns the parish, sheriff, and all. He can frame up anything. There's no ultimate danger, of course, but if he could have this, place at his mercy for a little while, he'd play merry h—1 with things. Who's that? Oh, come in. Uncle Neb!" A Icuock had sounded at the door. At the knock, Wrexham jumped. His eyes dwelt upon the advancing I figure of the negro with a strange uneasiness as though he devined something of u stiff import to himself. "Mlstuh Philbrick, BUB !" exclaimed Uncle Neb, his voice tremulous. "One o' dem Blu-footed town niggers jeBt drapped down to de landin' an' left dlshyer note fo' yo'—" He broke off to extend a folded, dirty scrap of paper. Philbrick took It, opened it, and held it to the light. Then he crumpled the paper and flung It into the tire. He leaned back, put his cigar again between his Hps, aud gave Uncle Web a calm order. "Gel (he little brown hand bag out of my room and bring it downstairs. Put in it that bottle of whisky Captain Wrexham brought. And fetch a rifle, Untile Neb: dont forget a bux of cartridges. That'll do." The old darky retired, and the door closed. Philbrick looked calmly at his guest. "Some kind soul -seirt wi\ a want- lug," ho said coolly. "The sherirf will bo hero In half an hour or so to take •mo away -for that shooting. It's a pretext, but good enough. You can't •murder negroes, even in this country. All thoy want, of course, is to have the place left at their niorcy for a while." Wrexham «tlffened In his chair. "What the devil I Are you serious, man?" Philbrick nodded. I'm off.

He stood motionless, his head slight, ly cocked, Btarlng up at the picture. Suddenly, as though same iunor answer had come to him, his lips parted in a wide smile. Through his beard flashed strong, even teeth like white Ivory. "Well, Miss Al-ine, it 's a bargain!" he cried out exultantly. "Damme if ever I thought I'd look into eyes on earth like youre!
