Finally :they saw him nod curtly to the native, who squatted down on  the pavement. A moment later he had rejoined them.

"You dpsiecrated their idols, and they've, excited a lot of the people against you and--" "And what?" demanded John, impatiently. With fl. meaning look towards Ruth Sir Donald faced Dorr. "This is not a place for Miss Gallon," he said, formally. "The truth of the matter Is, wo are known to be stopping here, and the mob will undoubtedly visit us EhoTtly." "But the police!"

At this moment there came from'the street outside the -sound'-of cries and yells and trampling feet. The two men looked at each other. With one accord they withdrew inside tbe hallway.  "That's the mob coming!" Sir Donald said hoarsely. ,"Now, forit!" , . "We must save Ruth at, all events!'' "Certainly," said Faversham, cold-ing. "But I must plan qviickly; Ah!

"That is true," said Sir Donald. But the safety of Miss Gallon is paramount. I will do what I can. :'PosBlbly I'll be able, to do more think." With this Dorr had to be content but later, when he and Ruth "were alone, he brought the subject up again. To his amazement Ruth seemed little interested; .and her manner was an odd mixture of reserye and timidity. Gone was the old frankness and intimacy.
