CHAPTER XVI. A New Witness. The Squire was relieved when he turned Carrington out. of his house, as he felt how impossible it was to live under the same roof with such: a scoundrel. He was still more reliev ed on hearing that the man had gone to London by an early train, and hop ed that prudence would keep him at a safe distance from Barship. As yet ne knew nothing of his late friend's interview with Mallien, nor did Mal lien appear at The Big House to re port the conversation. But Hendle had an uneasy feeling that the bar rister would not hold his tongue, un less -well paid to do so; and undoubt edly he knew many' things, the re velation of which would provei high ly unpleasant. If Carrington went to Inspector Lawson with his story, Mallien might be arrested, and the disgrace would break Dorin da's heart. Therefore, for the girl's sake, it was necessary to make some move, but what action could be taken Rupert did not very clearly see. He passed an uncomfortable morning turning thin...

As he passed out into the road he turned for one moment to make a last threat. Rupert guessed, from the malevolent I expression on. bis face, that he was i about to refer to Dorinda, and made a quick step towards him. Carring ton winced and cringed, shut his mouth, and sped down the road at a remarkably quick pace. Pie had been turned out of his paradise, where he had expected to live in clover for the rest'of his life with Hendle under his tnumb, and he knew that the closed gate divided him for ever from his old Bchool-friend. Therefore, did he curse, not himself, but Hendle, for being such, a fool. Carrin...

Diana, it may grieve you, but I fear that I must leave you, And I send my farewell message in a note. . I am now aboard a liner setting sail for Ind. or China, Or even for a country more remote. I know I swore that never fickle Fate our hearts should sever, I aaid it only yesterday at lui^ch; But I've altered my decision since I caught a fleeting vision .

No angry strife would vex us; but, alas, my sloar plexus Now always bears the impress of your fist. I have stood it without flinching, and I rather like the clinching, But y...
