Ten minu'es later ho excused himself and went to his room. Half an hour afterward ho extinguished ihe hurricane lamp, hut not before, he had clothed blmseii completely. Ho lay down at full length on tho bed. taking the precaution o.' tucking the mosqudo curtains securely round him. Tho bun. galow had become at* silent as the grave, a silence broken only My tho shrill scream of a lizard in the a taps and tho persistent mewinR of a cat that roamed the. rafters in search of rats. Occasionally, as the. minutes crept on in quick succession, strange noises floated in at tho window; the deep-throated croak of a bullfrog, the sleepy chattering of n monkey colony, the coughing of a «tag. .... His wrist watch showed him In luminous figures that it was close on one, when he heard a sudden riound of movement in the house; A door creaked open and closed again softly; there wag a muffled exclamation as someone tripped over a chair on the veranda; soft footsteps on the ground outside the house. A shadowy form appeared at the open window, hovered there for a moment, and disappeared. Keliowes leaped from the bed and ran to the opening, lie could just see the outline of two hurrying figures disoppearing along the path which led to Corrignn's bungalow. Thirty seconds—and he was after tliern. The night air revived him wonderfully. A hrceye was still blowing steadily from the sea. Overhead tho stars blinked down from a cloudless sky. The moon hung like a toy thing that had been cut out and painted. . . The mature rubber trees, their leaves rustling like children's whispers, threw e-ich a separate shadow. And somewhere in their black and silver depth}* lurked the joyous spirit of adventure: for Felbnves felt it: he dogged tho footsteps of those WEDNESDAY.

The wan-h- nian whose duty it wan to patrol outside—was not at his post. Cor- riL -an's hound—the beast that had followed him home—had disappeared. Tho two dark forms had gained the veranda. . . , Keliowes, every nerve strained, reached the pateh of dark- ne.-s thrown by of the walls, and erept stealiiiily round the huildinst, his head just above the level of ttie veratidu floor. I'res- Mjily he had swuut,' on to the veranda iUelf. lie'peered cautiously into the room forrlgnn employed as his office. Suddenly a blight li«ht flaslie,) in the. Kioom, he eatishl the outline of it stooping form, and saw a woman's hand of incredible smallhess ptisshiK with rapid, practiced movements over the combination. A second figure came to her .-ide and, as the perspiration trickled in cold streams from his forehead, a man's finders passed a bunch of keys into the circle of light—and were gone again, leaving It In the woman's possession. Followes saw her select a key, Insert It noiselessly—and the door swung open on oiled hinges. And then—ho waB blinking furiously into a room flooded with yellow light. Corrigan, immense in a sarong of terra cotta and red, set the lamp .deliberately on tilt table and looked down lite blue barrel of l'ater- son's revolver. "You may shoot, Fellowes," he said calmly. "Put 'em up. both of you," called the first, assistant from the window, his automatic leveled. "Up with 'cm', shouted Fellowes a>:aiti-aud Taterson put them up. Corrigau relieved him of his weapon. Fellowes climbed Into the room, breathing heavily. The sight of tho girl he had once kissed shamed him. "Corrlgan," he cried reproachfully, "what on earth does It all mean? They might have killed you!" "Oh! but I know you'd be there," returned t'orrigan, still with that exasperating grin. "Hut it's preposterous! I might have slept!" Corrigan came toward him and placed a heavy hand on his shoulder. "You were feeling rather sick with yourself this afternoon. You were getting a notion into your head, that I wouldn't trust yon—at- 1 1M - that. He nodded toward the girl- "I knew I could rely on you, old son. I wasn't taking any risk at all, you see. I knew you'd be there!" A mist swam before the assistant's eyes. "But it's wonderful—!" he blurt ed out.

ECZEMA You will b« compelled to admit that tho results of S.S.S.are really amazing! M ANY people Imagine that eczema or tetter needs only some external application on the skin In order to get relief. This is because tho attention of the suf- lerer is so violently directed to tho Intense burning and Itching which accompanies this disease. Try as they may—permanent relief will never be theirs until the disease laden blood Is thoroughly cleansed. Wo know there Is one thing that stops eczema and that Is more red- blood-cells! S.S.S. nuildB them by the million! You can lncreaso your red-blood-cells to tho point where it is practically impossible for eczema. to exist. We know that as blood-cells Increase in number, blood Impurities vanish! We also know that night follows day. Both are facta! But have you, eczema sufferers, ever actually taken advantage of this wonderful fact? Thousands just like you have never thought about It. Skin eruptions, ectema, with all Its fiery, skin digging torture, and its soiil-tearing, unreachable Itching, pimples, blackheads and boils, they all pack up and,go. when the tide of blood- cells begins to roll In! Blood-cells are tho fighting giants of Nature! S.S.S. builds them by tho million! It has been doing It since 1820. S.S.S. is one of tho greatest blood-cell builders, blood-cleansers and body strengthened known to us mortals! When you put these facts together,—then to continue to bavo eczema and Bkln eruptions looks more like a sin than a disease. S.S.S. contains only vegetable medicinal Ingredients. Because S.S.S. doos build red-blood- cells, It routs eczema, clears the akin, builds firm flesh, fills out hollow cheeks, and gives you that more up and going appearance. 8. 8.
