It does not take tho two lane to Inform eaoh
other of their bitter hatred. When Sevranca
returns, fi-r the German's unpleisant de
parture, he tills Gordon of Von Holzborn a
ClIArTlllt X (Continued).
I WAS unprepared for that, nnd, with the
memory of tho fellow's Insolence frosh In
my mind, I lost sonio of my scK-posscsslon.
Sovrnnco showed astonishment at tho vigor
of my remarks, nnd oven deprecated.
"Oh, 1 say, old chap, It's nit very well to
be angry with von Holzborn and to worlt
ngalnst him, ptid nil that hut, really "
To malto him comprehcird, 1 had to retail
what had juit passed between tho man nnd
myself. Sovranco listened In silence, trac
ing a llttlo pattern on the enrpet with tho
ferrule of hia stick; when he looked up It
Was with a set and angry expression.
"That makes It clear enough," ho com
mented thoughtfully. "The mnn shows him
Belt In his true colors, as an adventurer, a
chevalier d'lndustrlc, pure nnd simple or
not so pure and simple. This Nctzo busi
ness, now, I take It, Is nothing more thnn
a subterfuge to get Julia Into his powor
compromised I Tho devil !"
"That Is rlitht, ns fnr ns It goes," said I.
"But thcro'a more to It. In tho first plncc,
ho lies nbout Portsmouth, the yacht, and all
"Do you think so?" Sevrnnco looked In
credulous. "Oh, obviously. Ho did not bcllevo thnt
Julia had managed to communicate with us,
and ho thought to put us off tho track.
Their destination Is Saltncrcs. I havo no
doubt that Do Netzo Is with them, nnd that
It Is truo enough that he Is bolng stalkod
by Nihilists. U It Is so, Haltncrcs, from all
accounts, is tho very plare for him to lio
In safe hiding."
"Wild nnd desolate enough truo," said
"Then It's there we'll find thorn. Plainly,
her ladyship suspcctB something, otherwlso
sho would not havo phoned. Sho desires
at least our Advice. And sho would not
havo misled u.. Sevrnnco "
"True," he agreed again. "They will be
"And so will wo," I Informed him. adding
tho tlmo of the up-traln the next morning.
"You'vo nctcd wlsoly," he told me. "Now
I'm for bed. Wo'll leavo details to Grady
he's thoroughly reliable. Shall wo take him
with us?" lie added, after a moment's think
ing. "If you wish."
"Ho's a go 3d man bravo, loyal, quick
witted." I had no objection to offer, nnd thinking
Sovrance's way wisest, I followed his ex
ample and went promptly to bed, considering
a good ntght'a rest of moro value to us
than anything clso Just at that stago of
At least It furnished mo a cjenr head and
a certain clarity of Judgment during tho
next day ; I found tlmo and thought It
ndvlsnblo to review tho whole affair from
start to that moment, during tho railway
Journoy, nnd, although I came upon nothing
new, I began to understand tho enso much
moro comprehensively than I had there
tofore. I had tune, I say, for the reason that
conversation between Sevranco and myself
was prevented throughout the greater part
of the Journey by the presence of another
passenger In our compartment.
Grady had taken a seat In a second or
third class carriage I never could quite
fix In my mind the proper degrees of desir
ability as to tho carriages of tho English
railway systems j I only know that tho
only comfortablo way Is to travel first class,
and even thnt Is by no means ns luxurious
as It Is at home.
This person, who mado n crowd of what
Sevranco and I had fondly hoped would be
"just company," waa a little, shriveled man,
apparently of an age verging upon tho
sixties. Re kept well muftled up, and
grumbled to himself throughout the entire
Inasmuch as we had virtually nothing
else to look at, and could hit upon nothing
at all to talk about that we dared mention
In the presence of outsiders, I retained a
very vivid Impression of his odd appear
anceof his shaggy. Iron-gray brows above
a thin, hooked nnio; of his sunken mouth
with thin lips 'hat were never still ; of the
gaudy, cheerful comforter which he per
sisted In wearing tight-knotted about his
neck, with tho ends hanging down, shawl
like, upon his shoulders; of his bedraggled,
black spats; and, particularly, of his harjdM,
which were the hands of the very old thin
and delicately pink, and with a certain
glossiness of the skin, as If It were devoid
of natural moisture, stretched tight as any
drumhead over the bony knuckles.
Re had small, vivacious, prsternaturally
bright eyes, I remember, with which he
choso to Btaie at us by the ten-minute
stretch, quite unconscious or else careless of
his rudeness. And whenever we spoke to
gether, I remarked that his tremulous old
lips would cease moving, that he would un
consciously bend forward a bit.
Naturally, such conduct did not pre
possess mo In his favor. I catalogued him
as an inquisitive and boorish old man, and
prepared to dismiss him from my mind when
we changed cara at Lincoln, taking a
branch-line train which should convey us to
Sevrance, however, was disposed to be as
considerate and courteous as most young
Britishers are to the aged. I recall that
with his own hands he helped the old gen
tleman out of the carriage, and that he
Instructed Grady to convey his luggage
according to his wishes.
It later appeared that tho ancient was
bound In the same direction as ourselves;
for when our train had drawn In, and we
were climbing Into an empty compartment,
I caught a glimpse of our former fellow
traveler negotiating an entrance to another
car farther down the train.
Re disappeared from view, and that was
the last that I saw of him for some time.
Our train bore us, in a leisurely fashion,
through a rolling and sunny countryside,
still and wrapt In the Immense peacefulness
that seems an Integral component of an
English Sunday afternoon; for It teas a Sun
day, by the way.
Sevranca said something presumably in
structive about downs, and I received .the
Information without any astonishment; it
was all iust precisely as I had been given
to understand English downs would look,
and I was contented to find them so per
fectly patterned to my mental image.
They stretched away deliberately, offer
ing nothing startling to the eye; merely a
pleasant and homely sort of country, neatly
partitioned ott Into nlcs little squares of
iy allow stubble and rrtea grata and bars,
brown arth much like any one of tho Il
luminated pictures you may see In tho chil
dren's plcturo books tho prospect rarely
diversified by a patch of woodland or a
blnzo of whlto ngalnst the neutral tints
where tho flank of n chalk hill lay naked.
That outlook was, for a tlmo, like oil
upon tho troubled waters of our spirits;
It soothed, calmed nnd quieted our unrest,
even provided us with a tentative sense of
Incredulty, so Impossible did It seem that
aught out of the common could happen In
a land so staid and respectable.
Through Its Infinite sobriety our train
snorted nnd smoked and clattered, with a
vast, vain nlr of Importance nnd an assump
tion of speed entirely llluJonnry. In fact,
It poked; nnd it was the middle of tho aft
ernoon cro It came to a stop in Snltsea
Regis presumably for the simple reason
thnt It could go tin farther.
We stepped out Into n tepid bath of watery
sunshine beneath n hlgh-archlng sky. The
tang of salt water was In our nostrils nnd

"AND IT NEVER, NEVER STOPS"
Dearest Children Do you ever get tired? Tired of keeping up?
Look at the sun. It shines and keeps on shining and it never, never stops.
Do you ever wonder if you may be allowed to rest? Rest from doing your
duty? Look at the twinkling stars dotting the sky nt night and the silvery
moon sailing along through the clouds-it never never stops.
"The sooner you get at it tho sooner it will bo finished," we often hear.
The hardest part of most tasks is GETTING STARTED-getting at them.
Suppose that tree over yonder should get tired of growing; suppose the
rrass should say to tho sidewalk: "I'm tired. I'm going to quit. What's the
US' Mother Nature's babies never grow tired. They go on and on, each day
doing their part,
The JOY OF WORK is the JOY OF SERVICE.
Last of all, think of the grand old ocean; it never, never stops.

We had rounded a shoulder of the downs
nnd were descending a gentle slope. Before
us lay n vast nnd desolate expnnss of
downs, bathed In the ruddy light of the
setting sun, sinister to view, oppressing the
Imagination Btrangely with Its effect of in
finite, grim dlstnnccs; a savage and Im
placablo wilderness. ,

by the sulten growling that filled the! ar,

n hilltop or drove near the edge of a low
clmlk cliff overlooking the waters; and once.
If I remember distinctly, tho road debouched ,
upon the verge of a long, low and sandy
beach, where our wheels sank deep In the
yielding minis, following an Ill-defined way
between wldo reaches of shuddering coarse

farmhouses, their position evidenced by
glowing windows. Above us the winter stars
seemed to Increase their cold brilliancy, so
that the general configuration of the coun
