He dragged himself to tho dusty
grass beneath the "Five Ashes" at
thc four crossroads. He was faint,
for the hill had tried him, and sat
panting with his back against a tree.

All so familiar once, and the last
his birthplace !
A strange impulse, absolutely un
reasonable, for recognition might
still be dangerous, took possession
of him, an irresistible desire to see
thc place again, even though it were
by stealth at night. From the
boughs above his head came the
"pink, pink," of a chaffinch, and
through the filth and fog of a quar
ter of a century of evil, indistinct in
the fumes of drink and smothered
in its own futility, gleamed a rem
iniscence clear and sharp as the
bird's note :
An old farmhouse thatched and
stone built, with mullioned win
dows; in the.garden a *all pear tree,
with yellow buds c'istening in the
carly spring, and beneath a youth
with a gun peeping to get a shot;
then a man in breeches and hose,
elderly, but hale, drawling half hu
morously, "Why, Jack, my bwoy,
thy shots do hot off more buds than
all the chaffingers."
The old people must be gone now,
for Jack was the youngest and the
favorite five, and thirty years ago. s
Muttering against his own" folly,
he slung on his box and limped
along the Sutton road.
At evening he entered the Cups,
an inn on the outskirts of Sutton.
Everything waa as formerly-the
same bench and stools, the same oak
settle by the hearth. Two laborers
playing at shovelboard called each',
other familiar names, and the sing
song of their voices brought back
"What parish may this be,
please?" ho asked. '
"Zutton," replied both Aba and
"A large village ?"

Satisfied with the subterfuge of
these, questions, he Bat down and
"Any o' the name of Craddock

"Craddock, eh?" grinned Aha.
"What dost zay, Abe?*7
"Koo fear," said Abe.
He hesitated, but the longing to
know overcame his judgment like
the craving of a vice.
"And the farm at the foot of the
hill-who lives there?"
"Mr. Craddock, be sure-Varmer

His glibness had been successful;
but, ill at case, he shuffled on to Ce
old house with the pear tree, A sil
ver maned colt was reaching over
the paddock rail, the image of the
roan mare they used to call Rube.
All was quiet and prosperous, and in
the garden path stood the familiar
figure. He slunk into the shadow of
tho churchyard wall. Yet it was
only Diclc grown into tho substan
tial staidness of his father's place.
He went to the low thatched
house standing all askew with the
stalls and the wagon shed where he
i and Dorothy used to* meet. He
would sleep that night in ene of the
wagons, lt was scarcely dusk, but
the lifo came back quite clearly.
Work was over, and nobody would
come, so he went in and climbed up
out of sight.
He heard a light step and peered
over tho tailboard. There stood the
Doll Sanford of years ago, with bud
ding womanhood beneath tho open
neck of her print frock. She had
run out in haste. Her lips were
parted. He could see her face look
ing toward the gate into the or
chard. Then came a firmer step
just as when they said ho was too
wild for their Dorothy.
"I mustn't stay tonight, Jack."
"A few minutes, Doll."
'The maid's out. Mother'll miss
They kissed close to the wagon
wheel and were gone.
He could not help it. Come what
would he must go to the house, and
presently he crossed the yarrj, en
tered the porch and knocked.
"Nothing today, thank you," said
a sharp voice through tho partly
He remembered tho Craddock
rule, never to give money nor refuse

Without a word she disappeared,

"Isn't this Mr. Craddocks ?"

Jack Craddock. We were chums. I

"Killed ?" she echoed, trembling.
??Yes. It was in the trenches be
She gave a sharp cry and sank
into the stone seat in the porch.
A burly figure came from the
house. '?What's this? What's this ?"
he blustered and seized the tramp
by the collar and shook him.

man. ??It's nothing. He has done
He shuffled nervously into the
highroad and stood there in the
twilight beneath the pale summer
stars. Had she recognized him? He
could tramp no farther that day,
and again he slunk across the yard
and climbed into the wagon. At
dawn he would trudge on-far from
the village-out of the district.
At daybreak came the horses, but
they did not wake him.

that the tension must ho equal on

Naturally curled hair is oval in
