CHAPTER XVII - THINGS HAPPEN !

" You must wait and see," replied her father, shutting up like a clam once more.
They drove on in silence and Molly dozed once or twice during the long journey. She had almost decided to accept her father's explanation of things, when without warning the car stopped. It was pitch dark outside, and when she pulled back the blind in another fruitless effort to make out where she was, she could only distinguish a few dim lamps burning feebly in the blackness of the night. After a little time, she managed to distinguish the outline of a small railway station ; but it was impossible to see what its name was. They were kept waiting in the car. But the driver had evidently timed things very well, for in less than a quarter of an hour there came the rumble of a train in the distance. Immediately things began to stir. There was another man with the chauffeur and he now came to the door and asked them to get out. He spoke English, but Molly could see that he was not an Englishman himself. She was wondering now, what the next move was to be ; but she was not kept in suspense for long. The great train slipped out of the darkness bringing a trail of light with it, and much to her astonishment it stopped. Soon she found herself being assisted into a magnificent private saloon, where to her complete surprise, were the French maid and the military man who had now become indispensable to this weird " holiday," as her father had called it. Everything had been arranged for their comfort, and the train was soon speeding on its way once more. A dainty little sleeping-compartment had been prepared for her and, surrendering herself to her fate, she allowed the maid to help her to retire for what still remained of the night.
But as she lay in the luxurious berth she was wildly turning things over in her mind. She had questioned her father again in the car whilst they waited, but he
