A a a a a two officers conducted Langley to the visitors a room. Thu chamber u so contrived that a prisoner and his visitor Cauuet reach each Ouier. Two lines of Iron bars forming a passage separate those who thus meet if meeting it can be called. Langley was taken to the prisoner s part of this room. As it had been promised to hint his hand Cults had been taken off. Apparently this Bamson of a Man was perfectly resigned. Between hit cell Aud the visiting room be showed no sign of curiosity or interest in what was go lug on and he replied very quietly to the question put to him. A a which door will aha come in at Quot he asked suddenly. He bad already seated himself upon one of Tbs wooden seats fixed against the Wall. The Young Jailer pointed to a door on the other Side of the double Iron caging who i was fixed along the Center of the room. The convict raised Bis head. He began to see that he had Folie into a trap. A a but if she comes in there a he said a and his Volc was already less Calm Quot How can she reach me Here Quot Quot but the will not lie on this aids or the grating Quot said the younger of the two jailers i judiciously. A a half she will not lie on this Side of the grating to in a Soldi Quot he screamed. A Bhe was to have been near me. No Iron liars was to keep us apart. There was t a word said about them.

A word a look is quite enough to put you in a Balling a Quarter of an hour afterwards Sunflower shown the Way by Oue of the female warders entered the other Side of the visitors room and without glancing at her husband she sat herself Down on a chair As far away from Langley As possible Anil waited. The female warder had left the apartment and the terrible it air were alone face to food. As for the convict tho moment tils eyes fell upon her lie rushed to the Iron grating and stretched his arms to Belr full length toward her. For a moment his appearance was terrible then his face softened and tils eyes filled with tears. That mysterious something which surrounds and spreads from the woman or child to love produced its effect upon Langley. His was hut u boast that he would kill Sunflower. One kind look from her and his angry trembling hand would have been arrested High in the air. For some moments he said nothing. It was enough that he could look upon her. As for he woman prepared for reproaches insults she was simply amazed stupefied by his silence. Her dominant thought became the fear that he was med Tuting her some injury. Be narrowly scanned the Iron grating to Sec that the bars were secure when As he leaned against to lieu and they showed no signs of yielding she smiled. A a you Are not afraid of Rue Are you Bun Flower a he asked. Quot Well it be wonderful if i was. There has t been a Day since i was your wife Tomt you Haven t ill used a a Don t turn on me now in a Down a he replied sadly.

Be paid him Hack la Twenty minutes All the Dusults and ill usage she had suffered through three Long years. She was implacable merciless without even the Shadow of pity in her heart. He heard tial she bad to say never uttering a word. At last when she stopped he said a a Beu you Uever cared Lor me at All Quot Quot never Quot she said. A a if i said i loved you it was because i stood la danger of my Milfs if i told the his head Sank and it was Only after a Long Sll Onos that lie said Quot if i break jail again will you take me Hack will you give me one More Chance a Quot Quot never i Quot she replied bitterly.

Bun Flower draw Back and trembled. She knew what that change upon his face presaged. However he said in he quiet tone la which lie Hod spoken throughout their interview a so if i get away and Home o you again a the interrupted him and said a a y of will Uever know what has become of a then in a sesling you for the very last time a Quot the very Quot in a few Days you will be free while As for me i shall lie at Portland.

Quot wretch i Quot he cried and leaping at the bars lie seized and Shook them but without bending the Iron. The woman s first movement was toward the door. But when she raw How All his efforts mails no impression on the Rall lug she slopped came up to the second line of Iron work and fairly laughed at him in a whirl of scorn. A a Hal How you would break me up like a toy if you could get at me Quot she said. In a cruel voice. Quot nut i am out of your reach. I Nui no longer your plaything. Doubt worry yourself Bamson because you can t worry me. A Roar hut you can to get at me your in a Safe Cage at this last taunt gave no doubt to Langley n Force almost superhuman. He seized one of the bars with both hands and gave it n wrench with Savage suddenness it yielded and Bent towards him. In a moment her fear predominated. Bhe uttered shriek upon shriek. Another Jerk and the bar would have Given Way. A moment Ami she noted that the second line of liars were much weaker than the first. The wild beast might get at its prey after All. But the Force of human nature a its limits. Laugley had suffered so much during some hours five at least that even his Stre Ugto gave Way. His blood violently shooting along his veins and arteries flooded his quivering brain and he stagger us let go the bar and fell heavily senseless to the floor. Chapter Xiv and what has happened to Margaret Aud Austin Elvory while the exigencies of this narrative have led us away to scenes with which apparently at aral they Hod Little or nothing to do the Day after the dinner at which Webber Putin Force that terrible test of tho knife with which Forbes had been slain the Day after about three in the afternoon Austin i vary was once More in Park Street and knocking at the door of the Bouse under the Roor of which was now to lie found All that made life endurable. Quot my you san is really 111,&Quot sold Ellen Fother Lugay who received him a she can see it was in vain that Austin pleaded for Only a moments interview. All entreaty was in Vail and he left the House in a slate almost of desperation. He West at once to the Westminster Palace hotel that he might talk about her if he could not see her. But or. Vearll who until that Day Hod been so talkative gracious hospitable had become cold cautious ceremonious. He now responded by the merest monosyllables and became entirely a Lieut when questioned concerning his sister. Austin Elvory became thoroughly alarmed at the change in his newly found Freud. At the same time he searched eagerly for Auy cause that could have produced this change. After much investigation Aud patient thinking he persuaded himself that he had found the True cause. Quot the furl night s Grace he gave me in which to find Tbs Money i owe him on that terrible night s Boa Long alone past Aud he finds to doubt that i am la Klug the matter very coolly. He expects to he paid Quot this conviction taking full Possession of his understanding his great anxiety was to find a Means of discharging the debt of Honor As soon As is possibly could tor lie saw clearly that in the brother Tohnee lie could prevent my from seeing Margaret. What should he do he could not very Well go Back to the German in the and again he season was Over end he might have his journey for his pains. The next Day and Webber positively refused to Sec him. / by this act Austin 8ivory was reduced to despair. The contemplation of what was to become of him horrified the Man. The Only two persons with whom he had passed the last two months of fals life suddenly abandoned him. Apparently quite without justifiable motive. A and yet Quot he pondered Quot she heard me in silence she Ali Noet encouraged me us speak. Had not Vearll interfered perhaps she would have answered. And she left me abruptly without a word of explanation at the very moment when Iny Hope were raising to to a heaven of like a soul la agony he moved up and Down the streets until he arrived before Margaret a residence Theu raising his eyes to her windows As he a sued them he saw her half in the Shadow or one of the curtains. Theu for s time be was demented and his old audacity came Hack to him. He ran across the Street entered at the Chance open door ran up the stairs pushed past Elleu Fother Lugay who endeavoured to bar his passage rushed into the Hack drawing room and found flu self face to face with Margaret. This was the Day after the arrest of Laugley by Webber the detective. As Austin Elvory ran Forward Margnret came quickly in Advance doubtless with a word upon her lips la reference to his daring to Force his Way into iter apartments. But he gave her no Opportunity to speak. Belz lug her hands so that she could not release them he poured into her ears a declaration of love which was simply an Avalanche of mental Exalta Tiou entreaty and despair. After a Timo his words became More Dos Luct somewhat reasonable Aud he said a a 1 live Only when near you. If you were Goue from the world 1 kill myself. 1 have missed the Good Road in my journey through Irie. I have sinned and i look upon myself with horror yet have pity on me for you Cau regenerate me. Even a kind look from you will make me a better Man. Lie Lleve me dear Margaret give me credence if Only for pity a Sake. I a swear that my words Are hut the Portal of my soul. Burely a Man who suffer As i now suffer who weeps us Here Yot see me weeping surely he merits a a least a Little pity though he can a in no j hero he Stop Ted for hib flooding Aud sobs were suffocating him. Marguret meanwhile experienced a strange feeling As she heard this language one to new to her that it was a revelation. Graham Forbes had spoken kindly but Hie utterance had never been moved by a Salon. Phrases of love she now heard for the first Lime in All her life. Let the truth he spoken. Bhe had hitherto Only thought she loved now Alt unknown to her the great Pasa iou was taking her life prisoner. Austin continued.
