Lady Montamor's great eyes flashed scoru. She had at once recognised Gwendo len in the unseemly interrupter who had suddenly stepped out of the shadow cast by a stone pillar. And Robert drew himself ..p/and'Hooked at the spot in the t'eil where the eyes of the internveddler should be. He was pale, but an expression of contempt as well as of determination ?was expressed by every feature of his comely face. He recognised Gwen dolen-but also recognised that she had no right to interrupt his wedding; her so doing was, in his opinion, on a par with the fact that she had hunt ed him down, probably by detectives in her pay. Indignant, his first instinct was to protect Netta. "After that, the de luge," he thought, as, ...
