story goes, President Hadley of Yale

wife on his arm. They were admiring
the beautiful buildings which dot the
campus, several of them havelng been
erected by wealthy alumni. Presently
they came to an especially noble hall,
built of stone, and occupying a com
manding site. Over the main entrance
was a marble tablet which announced
that the hall had been erected by
"John C. Blank as a memorial to his

nervous and irr itaMo too that my friends trembled, and
I was ?n?b?c to attend, "to my work. Our physician pre

advised to go away. I. could neither spare the time ?or
money, and wa3 vory~much worried when, fortunately,

been cured of ovarian troubles, and how like my symp

Some few years ago, nt tho request
of my dying brother; I went to live in
his bouse. Bring alone in the world
save for bim ?ind his two sons, I gladly
took up my residence within his hos
pitable walls, and, having conceived a
great fondness for my nephews while
caring for my brother during thc few
months he lingered after my coming,
I yielded to his last wish and the re
quest OL the boys and promised to care
for them as long as they should need
or wish to have me.
There could hardly be a greater con
trast between two boys than between
these two. Harold, ton elder, was, nt
the time of which I write, about twen
ty-three years of age; tall, dark, in
tensely reserved, quiet, self-controlled.
His brother, some twenty months
younger, impulsive, quick-tempered,
demonstrative, open, affectionate. I
never saw such strength of purpose as
that of Harold's. Even as a young
lad he permitted nothing to stand in
thc way of his wishes, but so quiet
was his persistent effort one was hard
ly, if at all, conscious of a determina
tion which won In spite of every ob
stacle. Many and many a time I saw
the boys clash over opposing desires,
but it was always Theo who yielded.
Yet he had plenty of strength, too, but
a loving heart as well.
At this time of which I write the
real crash and test of strength had
come through love for the same girl,
a niece of mine by marriage, an orphan
whom I had adopted and who had
come to live in our pleasant bouse. It
had gradually come to a tense strain
between the brothers. They hardly
spoke to each other at table, and took
care never to meet away from lt. If

like a daughter to nie, I finally deckled
to speak to her about the matter mid

choose between them and end the
strain of uncertainty.

And she cried Uko a baby, ber head
buried in my lap.
"Poor little one," I said gently, "it ls
hard for you, I know. But surely you
must prefer one to tin other. It seems
to me before this trouble came you
used to like one the better," and I
raised her chin and smiled into her
sweet blue eyes.
She flushed and her head dropped.
"I used to think Theo was the dearest
boy," she half whispered; "but. some
how. Harold"-hesitatingly. "I don't
know what lt is-bc has a power I
can't resist, and yet I can't think it

am afraid of bim, auntie. Ile fright

can say to bim that I don't love him,

that I do."
Every day increased the tension.
Meals were passed lu a wretched si
lence that poor Agnes tried to relieve
with pitiful little attempts at gayety
which Theo made on effort to second,
but to little purpose. All through the
day Agnes clung to me in a sort of
desperation, followed me around with
a look in her eyes that wrung my
heart; but I was helpless to change
matters. I finally determined to leave
the house for a time at least, taking
Agnes with me, when an urgent busi
ness matter called Harold away for
several days. The whole household
seemed to breathe more easily when
he lind gone. It was only by the re
moval of the weight that we realized
how oppressed we had boen.
Instantly my girl seemed to revive
and Theo to grow more like the gay,
happy boy of past years. I had all
along felt that these two were suited
to each other, and, with all my affec
tion for Harold, felt be was not the
mate for my gentle girl. So, being a
woman, and therefore a matchmaker,
I managed to leave tiran together, also
sent them for a walk In the garden at
twilight. When they eames in I saw
all was well between them, and when
they sat down, one cn each side of
me, and began to pay me compliments,
me, an old woman, of course, I knew
all was right. So presently they con
fessed their happiness, with blushes
and shy glances at each other, to gain
cournge for the telling.
I never saw such a look of hate and
rage in my life as that whieh flashed
from Harold's face when the news was
told him on his return. "We all know
what happens wher> the cat is away,"
he said harshly-, and in an instant, re
covering himself, he wished them all
happiness and kissed Agnes upon the
brow with apparent brotherly affec

lt was a week later that, coming
into Agnes's room, I found her lying
face down cn the bed sobbing ber
heart away, ncr would she listen to
my comforting nor toll me her dis
tress. "She had promised not to tell
and she wanted to he alone," she
moaned, and-was still moaning when
Thoo rushed into the room, his face so
white lt startled mc. Ile did not seem
to sea me, but looked only at Agnes.
"You have nothing else to say to
me, Agnes?" he asked, hoarsely. "For
the hist time, I ask yon for the chance
to defend myself. liven the criminal
at the dock has that!"
She shook her bend. "It's no usc,
Theo. I have seen the proofs. You
couldn't explain away the truth."
"It's my brother who has dene this,"
he cried out bitterly; "done it to get
me out of the way. And I nm going.
But I tell you this, you shall never
marry bim. I will prevent lt oven if
I am (lend. I swear it:'' And, turn
ing quickly, he rushed from the room.
Her cry of pain and wretchedness
followed him. "Oh. what shall I do,
what sim ll I do! I can't bellera it!
And yet I sow the proofs, nunile, I
saw the proofs." And so she cried pit
eously, over and over.
When I had comforted her n little I
looked for my boy, but nowhere was
he to be found. He had goi:e, and gone
without a Avoid.
Time passed slowly. I never Avas
told tho reason of the trouble; and,
though I distrusted Harold, I had no
cause to accuse him. I pleaded for tlie
absent ono. but finally ceased, seeing
it Avas useless.
What I had lons expected came to
pass. Agnes promised herself to Har
old. All her pretty animation was
gone, and in thc same listless Avny she
did everything now prepared for her
wedding. Often, ns I looked nt thom,
her words of an earlier time came back
to mc; he did, Indeed, seem to ha\'C a
strange power over her. even her
thoughts were echoes of'his.
It was about 0 o'clock the evening

little morning room, which opened on
a porch that lcd into the garden. She

smoothing tho golden bend that lay so

a step on the porch and thc next in

cry that told only too eloquently of the
secret longing so long hidden, Agnes
sprang to her feet and rushed toward
him. Ile stopped her with a gesture.
"Do you still belle o nw guilty, Ag
"No, no!" she cried, "and even if 1
did, I would forgive you. I don't care
if lt's true or not. Oh. Theo, hoAV long

"And you mean to marry Harold to

the ground was damp from a recent
rain, there was no sigu of a footprint

HE DIDN'T KNOCK FIVE.
Why Ibo Yoiin? Doctor Had to Uombarrt
Iii? Own IIOURO.
They bad been married only a short
while. He was a young and strug
gling physician, and she a very sweet,
devoted little wife, but very much
afraid of burglars; so when lt did hap
pen that the dudor had a sick call dur
ing the wee hours they resorted to all
sorts of means that she might know
that it was he who wished to enter (he
iiouse upon his return and not Hie
dreaded night prowlers. The calls
were not many, but somehow they had
never hit upon a successful plan until
the wife exclaimed one morning at
breakfast, "I have it now. Jack; after
this you knock live times, and let there
bo a minute between each knock; then
I'll be sure to know it is yourself."
Jack, so the story goes, was not in fa

gain entrance to his own house, hut
ever anxious to please, agreed to the
arrangement, and one night had occa
sion to test it. Some one was dying,
the messenger said, and wanted a doc

Whereupon Jack tumbled inlo his
clothes and in the confusion didn't
hear, or, what was more likely, forgot
all about thc live knocks that he was
to give the front door upon his return.
During his absence the fearful wife
"could hear nothing but knocks." she
afterward said, "and I was just so ner

neighborhood, that I thought Jack had
been gone an hour before he had time
to turn thc corner. Finally, l heard
