He arose with a resigned sigh. "Five minutes are soon up," he arid to Tre- vor. "Will you agree to take time out while I talk to my associates?" "Most certainly," answered Trover gravely and opened the door for his lordship. . . In ten minutes the associates were persuaded; in half an hour, with the assistance of lhe diamond nmgnate's engagement ring. Andrea and Trover were made man and wife according to the ancient usage of the Church of England; and Just five minutes at!or that, Bathtub announced dinner. It was high thnB, for in spite of the to,-,st that she had had with her tea. Andrea was faint and pale with hunger. Noth- ing short of the stimulus in the ex- citement of being married for the very first time in her life could have saved her from collapse. That was a great and merry dinner. The toasts that were drunk to the bride were many, some hearty, some witty; but the one that stood out above all others was that in which she pledged herself.

The bishop and his companions were northw.u'd bound, Andrea and her man headed for the south and the coast. In "the (.old mist of the morning they parted xx ith tight handclasps and earnestly murmured "God-bless-you's.'" Incidents. following rapidly one niter the ~,ther, kept Andrua's mind off.the renting encounter with her old worhl unlil she was actually on its verge, Late one ~ffternoon tlmy came aped the bay and Trevor waited expectantly for her to recognize the scene of ber ravishment. He was disappointed, for the thin. insignificant strip of yello~ sand tueked under the red cliff dimin- ished by distance to lhe l)roportiou ot a railway embankmBnt, meant noflzlng to her inexpcrlenced eyes. At last he pointed it out to her. "Be- nold," he said. "the beginning and the end of all things." . Amlrea no(lded. "I felt it but I could not put it In words like that." As Trevor, the white head of a quarter-mile-long and glistening black serpent of humanity, swung in be- tween the gateposts of the hotel's im- posing portals, the ever-opportune Marguerite stretched his neck, raised his barrel-head and brayed.' Above that raucous cry sounded-a the sponta- neous and uncontrollable peal of An- drea's silver laughter. The groups of mBn and women-- all but one---on the hotel veranda stop- ped in their various occupations as though t~aralyzed ; drinks paused half- way to thirsty lips, cigarettes burned uneonseious fingers, knitting needles poised instantaneously---all but one pair. The manipulator of the excep- tion was a dear but very proper old lady wearing a cap of filmy lace~ on her plentiful white hair and enough filmy lace on her person to make the porch chair, in which she sat, look like a stall at a Red Cross bazaar. She was knitting a vast khaki-colored sweater and at the sound of Andrea's : laughter she gave no sign beyond purs- ing her withered lips while she meth- odically finished off the stitch upon which she had been engaged. That done, she raised a pair of beady black eyes so wonderfully alive that it seemed impossible they be- longed to her wrinkled face and flash- ed one look at Andrea and one at Tre- vor. "Well, my dear," she said calmly, presumably to the former, "lt's a re- lief to have you back apparently alive and well." No sooner were the words out of her mouth than she was swept into Andrea's impetuous embrace. "Oh, Aunly Gwen! Oh, you old dear!" The lady defended herself wlth con- siderable energy and was. beard to grumble thaN even kissing had de- generated Into a rough pastime. Hav- ing rescued herself from Andrea's arms, she said, "Now that that is over you will please go to your room and change from that outlandish circus costmne; you'll find everything as you left it except for a new lock on the door." Andrea glanced at Trevor and lean- ed over to whisper imploringly In her aunt's ear. "Your husband?" enunciated the old lady clearly. "Well, that's a relief, too; but I prefer to meet him else- where and after you have presented documentary evidence. By the way," she added with ominous emphasis as she resumed her knitting, "Harry is still here." "I should say I am," exclaimed a youth in the trim uniform of tile Fly- ing Corps, as he stepped out from the hotel door. "Hello, Sister Andy." Tl~en his eyes fell on Trevor. A slow smile of happy welcome spread over his face. "Well, I'il be d [" he exclaim- ed fervently. "D' you know, Trover, l've been saying from the firSt. "q~hex'- chez the flying-machine.' Come in and let me watch you have a drink." Trover. quivering under the pressure of the control he had summoned to carry him through the trying mo- ment aml filled with an immediate love and admiration for Aunly Gwen, paused re direct his following to a nearby vacant lot. "Is that marriage tip straight?" asked Harry. "Straight as the gc, od bishop of Mo- n]a and /We olher missionary Johnnies redid make it," replied Trevor. Hurry wan thoughtful for a moment, thee he said. "Well, Trover. I don't know how yea're fixed for proof but you know tbat throagh lean years and fi~t. I'm for you from the break in balk. As one sportsman to another, 1 congratulate you on puN illg one over on that up-country animated leather~ sack of vintage wines. By the way, yov realize I've got to wire hhn." "Of course," said Trover. "Tlze soon- er the better. Don't worry about An- .drea's food and raiment," he added fluslfing. "The truth is, I'm pretty well heeled with the needful." "Ym~ Americans generally are." sai5 Harry admiringly. "Sort of jolly n~ tional | radltion."

He ]it a ciga- rette and snapped the dead match through the open doorway. "You think so, do you?" said the magnate, his eyes snapping malignant- ly. "You've probably never heard of the shipping ring, but I'll tell you this --the line tlmt takes these two---tw(~-- two whatchumay-eallums as passen-' gets is ruined. They'll stay in Africa till they rot." Andrea stifled a yawn. "Robert," she said in her coolest and best society voice, "if Sir Hammar is going to force us to wait here for one of your own steamers to put in--I think vou'd bet- ter collect' that thousand pounds re- ward." It was the end. The magnate gasped, sprang up and fled, pursued by a smoke arrow propelled from Harry's rounded mouth, Aunty Gwen pursed her lips but kept on knitting; she could not, however, altogether hide the laugh that was in her snapping eyes, Andrea dropped on bet knees beside her. "Oh. Aunty Gwen," she begg~l "won't you please let me iutrodnce Ro~ert? He's the dearest, mo~ thoughtful, strongest and weakest man that a lucky girl ever loved."
