"Come along, 752," said tho head
warder cheerfully, clapping an enorm
ous hand upon tho young man's shoul

The convict stepped out of bin coll
and followed the head warder obed
iently. Threo years of discipline had
taught him to ask no questions, to
demand no reasons He hardly dared
to hope that the pardon board had
granted his petition.
"'Tcntlon! Eyes front!" said the
head warder mechanically, and the
convict mechanically obeyed. But the
governor Btrctched out his hand nnd
took tho convict's In n hearty clasp.
"The board of pardons has granted
you your freedom, Grnves," he said.
"I Blrongly recommended It at the

As a matter of fact, Philip GravcB
was deeply moved, but for all that he
had not the least intention of return

prisonment he had been thoroughly
Initiated Into the possibilities of
crime by his fellow convicts. He
woull hnve liked to re-establish him

but the Idea seemed laughable. His
old mother In Mapleton was doubtless
able to exist without him; his Bisters
held good positions and could take
care of her. He took tho train to tho
capital and spent his loney In two
days' of riotous living.
Tho second evening found him pen
niless. It was cold and dismally wet,
and tho long tramp through tho dismal
suburbs had not raised his spirits. He
sat down on the sidewalk and burled
his head in his hands. That was tho

Graves roso nnd followed him. At tho
end of the street was a long country
lane, with finely-built, scattered houses
lining it, ench In Its gnrden. Tho mnn
turned Into one nnd let himself Into
the homo with n key. Graves watched
him. Then he felt in his pockets. At
tho bottom of one, hitherto overlooked
by him, was a dime. Graves knew
where ho could got all tho whisky ho
wanted for a dime If he chose the
time when the bartender was not
looking his way. He went there.
"Take your fill, boy," said tho bar

set down tho glaBB, and went out.
He walked the streets until his head
swam from tho liquor. It was very
dark and tho rain fell steadily. Graves
was wet to the skin. Ho walked nn
Immeasurable time, until nt last, look
ing up, ho saw tho house Into which
tho prosperous man had entered.
A llamo of nngcr burned In his
heart, hotter than the flro In his brains.
Good resolutions! What wero they
for such an he? They wero fpr the
rich, for those who could afford to
keep the laws! He was no fool to bo
bound by such a codo.
Ho crept up tho garden, f,elt a lower
window, and found that ho could raise
it. A minuto later ho waB groping In
side a dining room.
Cautiously ho struck and lit a
match. Then ho gnspod in astonish
ment. For on the buffet, carelessly
laid out, was a galnxy of silver plate.
That central piece that flat tray,
which ho could put undor his coat
nnd walk away with, must bo worth

He would tnko It on his way out. He
opened the door and crept upstairs.

Tho captor and tho captive stood

"Her son was. killed In an automo

chance. I'll let you go if "
"You're coming to me, aren't you.
"Yes," muttered the thief, nnd with
unsteady footsteps ho staggered to

upon n chair. He felt tho hand of
the old woman close upon his.
"Are you John? Aro you my boyt

"Yes, I nm John," the convict whis
Sho said no moro for a while but
seemed to doze. Gently, by nlmost
Imperceptible degrees, tho mnn In tho
room lowered the gns light till it was
only a little twinkling flamo In tho
darkness. And the thief sat motion
less, his hand held tightly In the light
clnsp of the dying woman.
After a long tlmo nhe roused her
self. "Johnny," alio whispered, "turn
mo bo that I can put my lips to :'our
ear" And the convict turned the
shrunken old body reverently, nnd
with n now and strange fearlessness.
Then tho old woman spoke ngnln, nnd
so low nnd weak were her tones that
ho could only grasp them by bending
his ear till her lips touched It.
"Johnny," she paid. "I want you to

want you to bo good for your old
mother's sake, Johnny. There's no

"Then I cnir go In peace, Johnny,
dear. Kiss me." Tho dying woman
half raised herself and Graven took
her In his arms and pressed his lips
reverently to her forehead. And not
daring to stir, ho remained thus hair
through tho night.
Then longer till tho gray light be

Tho outlines of tho room became ap

Tho vital fires had burned them
