And so things went on for years, until I heard from the Countess again, and I found that she knew nothing of her child. Oh, I have made no secret of my feelings in that matter. I

have spoken quite freely tonight." Silva paused for a moment, and wiped his heated face. "From that time forward," he went on, "I have devoted myself almost exclusively to my search for the child. It did not occur to me till comparatively recently that Lord Ravenspur had had anything to

girl precisely what little Vera would have been by that time. The more I studied those features, the more convinced was I that here was the object of my search. And when I asked the name of the artist, I was told that it was none other than Lord Ravenspur. "Then it came upon me like a flash that my search was at an end.

the Count, Lord Ravenspur had taken the child away. Those two were in league together. But the one who still lives shall not escape his punishment. I will see to that." "But are you quite sure?" the countess asked eagerly. "Have you seen Vera? Does she live with Lord Ravenspur? "That I don't quite know," Silva said. "I have hung about the house; I was determined to find out things for myself without raising

suspicions in the minds of the servants. I gradually discovered what the household consisted of. On and off for the last two years I have watched and waited, but I saw no sign of anybody resembling the girl of whom I was in search. And gradually I began to think that I had made a mistake.

I can see now how the child would have reminded you of her

father. And that is why I have said so much. But, at the same time, this thing has been an indignity to the family which I cannot overlook. Lord Ravenspur will have to pay the price of his audacity. Blood is thicker than water----"

In other matters she was convinced that he was little better than a dangerous lunatic. Were they on the eve of another dreadful tragedy, she asked herself, or was this man

merely uttering vapouring threats when he spoke in this fashion of Lord Ravenspur? "You will do nothing rash?" she said. A queer smile flickered about t
