She could se% nothing of the driver In front, and again that mysterious sense of fear stole over her. But Dick would know best was her reassuring thought, and she endeavored to be bravo and remember lt was to help him she was here. Yet what could she do? The whole affair seemed wrapped in mystery. Taking out her handkerchief, she put this around ono of her wounded feet, and lay back up- on the cushions, though these smelt musty and worm-eaten, and, closing her eyes, at lust fell into a kind of slumber, from which she wa...
