said coming back. "That will give you

We followed her out into the night,
across the narrow clearing into the
fringe of woods. There were clouds
overhead, and very dark, but there
seemed to be a path winding through
the dense tangle of underbrush. Only
for a moment did the girl hesitate,
bending down and listening. Then she
led the way around a narrow point of
sand, pressed back some bushes, and
revealed the sharp prow of a canoe.

I thought she hesitated, and I
grasped her hand more closely, the
hot blood leaping in my veins. In the
dim light I could see her lowered face,
the eyes downcast.
"No, monsieur," she said at last,
very low. "It is good of you to think

There was an unconcealed note of anx-

I returned. "I know the duty of an
