Already i had to the margin of the Lauie. Circled with quips it gleamed cold and Placid in the Moon Shine. In the Winter its surface was covered Riith wild fowl geese ducks occasional . To nigh t not a living creature met my Eye. Solitude supreme. Skirting the tules i came to a Point of so near to the Island that a Stone might thrown from one to the other and across the Channel i noted a boat moored to a Post ind a Light to inkling in the i cow of the hut. To attract the notice of the greek i shouted louder than Stentor to Lidice. At the third shout the door of the hut opened and i could see plainly the huge body outlined sharply against the Hack ground of Light. To is his Bass voice rolled sonorous by across the water. I Hugo lie turned and entered the hut shut the door. For a moment i suspected that he meant to ignore my presence but i was mistaken lie appeared again almost immediately and walked towards the boat. A minute later he was by my Side. Good he said tranquilly. I came i began bluntly to Tell you to Bat i am not tie fool you take me for. You can impose voc or. Of Rard but not. Upon me.

I have Laid no trap you he displaced no resentment. Thought it May have been fancy that a smile hovered upon his lips. You i repeated Demetrius As glibly As honest men speak the truth. You pandered to j stir master s fears and urged him to Send his family to Europe with me know ing that i should refuse to leave at your mercy the mercy of a he spread out his hands with a depreciating gesture. Or. Livinigston i swear that j of do Aji injustice i agreed to stay Here watch this madman but i had no intention of arousing his fury by going near him. The doctor and a competent Morse have Hon in charge. I suggested to or. Gerard that 3-011 should take Mark to Europe because you know a trope and because you can teach the boy what i yrs i said with emphasis. Happened yesterday or. Liv Ingston justifies these taunts.

We will see then what he will in the Moonlight i could see his lips Whiten and. Quiver. I noted these signs of distress much satisfaction. They Pioci aimed the absence of col Lusion Between the greek and Gerard. For god s Sake sir Don t Tell him you be 5eft lae no Choice in the mat Jle began to Tuge me to keep silence. Employing such arguments As his prolific brain afforded. When he had is these i shoo head. You. Think this Over he pleaded. Sleep upon it and remember that five and Twenty years of faithful ice Are at very i replied. Ill think it Over. As for sleep i watch to night in Burlington s room. There will be no sleep for he thanked me for the 12 hours Grace but i Cut Hira Short. Or. Livingston Pardon me but Are you not afraid of being alone with that i. lot so cd e i As j As you could wish Demetrius. Best assured my Friend that the Prospect of spending the night with or. Burling ton does not scare me at All. I Don t think he could move if he tried. And in my Case i m stronger than he answered quietly scanning me from to Heel Jou Are a or Lul. Young Man but in a fight the Vic tory Doea not always rest with the strongest. I wish sir you could Trust me. My Friendship is Worth having. Give me your word or. Livingston that you will not Smirch try character and Rne your Friend for the oily smoothness of his tones Dis gusted me and i answered roughly your Friendship Demetrius has no value in. My eyes. And i toil you frankly that oct right in o no in my determination. As sure As i m standing Here i shall Tell or. Gerard to truth the very first thing to Morrow so be he answered sullenly. I watched him As he strode to the boat a Tai Ely figure but a personality that aroused in me nothing but distrust and aversion. He untied the Painter pushed off from the Shore pulled across the narrow Channel made fast the boat to bomb Post and entered the House then upon my Basel walked rapidly away. Mark Gerord 1 found had no left the Dilag Roo a. He had Sut there smok ing Cigar after Cigar the air was heavy Ith he fumes of his Stro Norpor Feretos. The contrast Between the Salt Breeze from the Ocean and ering atmosphere of that close dining room Yasno More salient perhaps than Theodi Terence Between the Hugo living a ton of a ago and the de individual of to Day. I accepted a Cigar in self defense and n chair. A e a my Friend you be Yeeu deme thought he i told that i was a Cov. Ard myself and i can recognize the symptoms in others. Demetrius does not know the meaning of the that remains to be just so. Will you give him the Chance and take my people to Europe place As Many Miles Between this Devil and Mark As you can. I should think you d jump at such an you Are generous of course i am. I like you Hugo. I recognize in you the i Laek courage inflexibility. So it s settled i m at your sen ice or. and i can use on to Best of advantage. I like to use men. And 1 pay them handsomely. There is he must. Ham.1 grown Rich in your service and speak out. And i e has said Airl be might have to be something More than your Mere sen he aspired once to be my partner. Fur Jiuu Lii a i i Iuliu Ajio Iner i waited and the explanation came Between puffs of smoke i educated Demetrius to Assis mein my business. I was not 20 when i found him running Barefoot in new York but i recognized at once in him those qualities and faculties which properly trained bring a Man to the front. But Demetrius proved too smart much to my disappointment and i had to show Linin his place. We were at Black Gulch then and i was engaged in the most extensive mining operations. Demetrius was my right or but he continually ova topped instructions. He thought he knew it Well i had to Hai e a partner a Man whom i could talk to and control a conserva Tive Man v. To would furnish the motive Power the running Here and there and itf3 is dread Plec ised to let me do the planning in peace. Such a fellow was right to my hand poor Ferdinand Perkins. It must have been. P heavy disappointment to Demetrius Buthe stood it like a Trojan. Then came the murder of Perkins and what Fol Lowed. Demetrius himself applied for his present Post which he has kept. As you say he s a Rich Man. He has no kick i glanced at my watch and Rose. I sit with Burlington to night or. yes he winced at the Man s naive. I Don t envy Jou. Well i la go to bed. To Morrow i shall spend with his softened tones As he finished the sentence provoked the exclamation you re a devoted father or. he sighed. I live again. Hitro. In the person of my child. I be had a hard life plenty of Shadow lad and Little Sunshine. I be peeped int most things and found them hollow. In my love for Mark As you know has been my greatest Joy and my greatest misery. i pitied him profoundly As i walked upstairs. Community of suffering according to George. Eliot is the Root of pity and smarting beneath the knowl Edge that Nancy could never be mine realizing that life without her would Rand t Rould rest myself in the place of Mark Gerard and say with him All is vanity. What a Paradox the Man was what a bundle of contrast he possessed in Many material respects a mind of the largest scope and also of the smallest mind at once of the finest and coarsest texture. His financial combinations bad gained him an International reputation. He was known As one of the Luckiest bulls in the sleek ring. He had the tenderest affection for his son. I it t knew him to be a sensual St a pol Troon. Perhaps it had the moral equipment which in to lice latter Days proves the shield of Success the Aegis against which the slings and arrows of a debauched and Unicy Purlous press rattle in vain. The professional nurse assured me that the patient had rested easily had Inz or a. In irl slag Amo it of nourishment. The sight symptoms of fever had passed away and theol plication of the liniments caused less pain. He Lay upon his Back eyes and a Corith closed senseless apparently to the outer . I received careful instructions As to diet and Massage then the nurse left me. The room was the one usually occupied by Demetrius it had. Two doors and a window. One door communicated with the passage and the other with Mark s Bedr oui now vacant. Here the nurse told me i should Lind Coffee and Light refreshments. A drawn Portiero Hung Between Hie rooms but the door was open and a lamp burned brightly upon table Light for the room beyond where Bur the nurse warned me to leave this lamp where it was too much Light Hesdahl was bad for his patient. I took Ray seat by the head of the bed with my Back to the Portiero end facing the window. The lower Sash was vip and i could see and hear the Ocean.
