Betty's first impulse was to mount

mp the idea was abandoned. It wa<
but a short war to rhe cliff lined coast,
and there were a hundred fissures ami

be hidden. Before she could secure aid
and locate the particular fiord foi

they might make good their escape.
There was nothing to do but follow
them and trust to circumstances to af

Three times Betty rested her revolver

but each time she lowered it. *
"She deserves it. but 1 caunot do it,"
Betty whispered. "I cannot!"

Meanwhile Pinto, disdaining roads,
had cut straight across tbe fields to

as lie passed. A score of laborers rec-

horror as to what the empty saddle
might bode. They hastened in the di

but the countess screamed a warning
and pointed inland. Hushing toward
them were a score of stout rustics, men

in a cry for help the yokels burst into
a yell of fury and redoubled their speed.

a peer of Kngland and his wife were
naturally members simply ignored her.
That her husband audit in time rea j
lize th : .< fact and he shamed thereby
was Betty's only fear for the future.
Her native intelligence was too great
for her to resent what she knew to
IK* class prejudice, cultivated and
handed down through long centuries.
She was quite capable of realixing!
that, from the point of view of the
Duchess of Prex for instauee. she.
Betty, was a little nobody whom it
would be quite impossible to admit to
social existence without violating the,
most sacred of the laws whereby the
duchess held her own exalted station.
Just wherein lay the extraordinary
influence, amounting almost to social
despotism, exercised by the duchess,
would luiv'e been difficult of explana
tion by her most faithful subjects,
but tlie fact remained that to receive
a nod of approval from thus ratherj
terrible old lady was to ha\e opened

To be able to claim most distant
blood relationship with the duchess
was sufficient to elevate a mere baro

perhaps largely due to the'fact that'
such claims to relationship were very
few. In Iter old age the duchess, j
