"And, no doubt, by the Kenson woman's agent, that spy who called to see you at the war office the same morning. Colonel Howard knows all about it. He means to stand by you. He heard you had enlisted, but he did not know you were in the medical corps, nor under an alias. He is at the base now, Wallace. When he comes up next week I shall make it my business to see him about you." "No, sir," gasped Mark. "It doesn't inferno or crackling death. Then, gradually, the alarm subsided. The rocket showers died down. "Now, boys!" whispered the corporal. They crawled onward. The huddled form came into clear view. The body seemed to be already blending with the earth, melting into formlessness; and there was no need to wonder whether this was of a dead or wounded man. The corporal swore. "I told you so!" mumbled Mark's companion. "I told you so. What's he sent us here for, the fool?" His words ended in a gurgle. From behind the shelter of the corpse leaped five men. Noiselessly they flung themselves upon the party of three. Mark felt a pistol at his temple. "Surrender!" hissed a voice in his ear. In a flash he realized the trap. The three were unarmed, noncombatants ; it was a counter-rai- d and Kellerman had known that the enemy were abroad that night and suspected their rendezvous. SYNOPSIS.

And as for what happened last night, you took me off my guard. I'll be frank with you. It was my duty to interest the Kenson woman. I succeeded too well. She followed me here.

Mark took it "I will, Major Kellerman," he answered. And he made his way to the dooi of the dugout, with a feeling of warmth In his heart such as he had not known for many a month.

And the thought of the Infernal trap goaded Mark to madness. As his captor, never suspecting resistance on his part, let the muzzle of the pistol droop, Mark drew back his hand and struck upward with all his might He felt the burn of the powder as the discharged bullet sped under his chin, he heard the startled cry of th Germans ; and then a furious outburst fire came from the of machine-gu- n trenches opposite.

No word had come of any project of attack on the morrow morning. In this the sergeant's prediction had probably proved false; yet the feeling in the air of something impending seemed to have communicated itself to the enemy's lines. A wiring party' and a listening post party were out from the American trenches, and Mark was on duty with three others of the stretcher bearers' company, ready for a call. "A corporal was at the dugout door. "Stretcher bearers!" he whispered. The four men were on their feet immediately, two stretchers ready. "A man hit between the lines," said the corporal. "You've got to bring him In. You can see him from this loophole." Mark stepped upon the sentry's platform1 and saw, indistinct in the darkness, a huddled form about half-wa- y to the German trenches. Then he heard Kellerman's voice at his side. "A man of the th got hit," he said. "Bring him in, Weston. Make a quick job of It Corporal Baines, you'll take charge. You two will be ready to take out; your stretcher in case anything happens," he added to the two others. The corporal led the way, crouching, toward the gap in the wires. They passed two lines, traversed a diagonal lane, and emerged beyond the third into the open. The body of the wound- ed man, which had disappeared, came Into light, a black patch under the open s The sergeant saluted. "Right turn !" he said to Mark. "Walt a minute," interposed Kellerman. 'Td like to have a few words with this man, Captain Keyes." "By all means, sir," replied the Cap--arrising. He strolled, humming, to the door of the dugout leaving Kellerman and Mark together. "So you've enlisted under the name Weston?" inquired Kellerman. "That is my name, sir." 'It was a shock to me yesterday, Wallace. I never expected it Your disappearance stirred Washington a good deal. The war office would have exonerated you." In spite of his loathing of the man, Mark felt his heart begin to hammer with hope. He looked at Kellermaji with pathos in his eyes; he could not hide his feelings ; he was groping amid the ruins of his world and trying to reconstruct them.

But Mark did not open his lips. And before Colonel Howard could resume Eleanor had sprung up and faced Mark eagerly. "Now, Captain Mark, listen!

Suddenly a shriek pierced the sky, cutting off Mark's speech, and a shell burst somewhere by with a shattering detonation, followed by the dull boom of a distant gun. The Colonel started, .and then resumed his gaze. It seemed to Mark as if that was an eternity of torture. He struggled In his mind desperately to find words to say when the noise subsided.

They flung themselves to the ground, and proceeded to wriggle forward, trader his directions, pushing the stretcher as noiselessly as possible across the rough ground. Suddenly the man with Mark uttered an exclamation. "What the devil's he sent us on this job for?" he demanded truculently. "Shut up, you fool!" whispered the corporal hoarsely. "That ain't the man.
