Ills whole relined nature rebelled la
disgust at the monstrosity of yellow
journalism but his curiosity was
strong enough to mako him read what
Barton seemed so genuinely sorrow for

and Social Circle Mr Gordon He
pudlates Ills Son 11111 Marsh Refuses I
to Talk Does Not Deny Interview
With Her Former Lover John Gordon
to Make a Special Study of Tenement
House Condition In Bowen Street
Tho whole story occupied two col
umns and directly under the headlines
which covered two columns In width
were two cuts one of John Gordon and
the other of Iuella Marsh The title
under these cuts read Cupid Halts at
Social Sacrifice
John Gordon read the headlines and
Blared at the pictures Then be
crushed the taper between his hands
and flung It on the floor
King the bell for Williams John I
think hei In the pantry You need his
help to do It Justice Sorry I dont feel
able to chip In with you
For a moment John Gordon stood
still by the table then he came over
and sat down by his friend
I dont care for myself but Luella 1
David Its a horrible Invasion of all
ones sacred private affairs I have
never understood how you could believe
In that sort of journalism
David Barton looked lovingly at John
Gordon Ills cynical whimsical reck
less manner disappeared for a moment
I dont believe In It Never did
John Its purely business with me
Im awfully sorry for you What do I
believe anyway My whole life bss
contradicted my creed But maybe
theres hope for me yet What do you
think Am I too bad to repent and be
saved J
MVedJobn
John Gordon stared at his friend and
In a moment his own deep abiding re
ligious experience reminded him that
here was a soul groping after light
David he exclaimed softly no
one Is I too bad to repent and be saved
Oh David Christ makes all life worth
while
I believe that the reply came In a
whisper Ive never said much John
but Ive tried to
Tho usually cynical voice actually
broke with a sob that cut John Gordon
deep although In that tense moment
which had come on so swiftly there
was a fierce joy at the confession his
friend had made
Ho bent over and put a hand on liar
tons and they sat thus silent for a
gracious moment It was significant
that neither of them had said a word
about Bartons physical condition and
his hopeless future so far is physical
life was concerned The stillness In
tho room was suddenly Interrupted by
a clang out on the street
Gordon went over to the window and
looked out
The department Is I making a fine
run he said briefly to Barton
It was late and the avenue was al
most empty of traffic A team of pure
white horses on the engine which pre
ceded the hose and ladder wagon
plunged forward with a desperate but
glad abandon that struck fire from the
pavement and whirled the engine along
with a mad but glorious energy that
made human blood run faster and kept
the pulses beating with sympathy The
driver and his assistant leaned for
ward their bare heads tossing their
free hair behind the whole scene
flashed by In the night like a bit torn
out of a Itoman chariot race of tho
dead past transformed by chance to
the modem municipality whoso streets
are lighted with electricity and whose
buildings loom up In the smoky air
like crags beside the prairie sea
The whirling group swept around the
corner at the end of the next block
slacking speed just enough to avoid
turning over John Gordon came back
to Davids side
Where la the Brer
I didnt notice the alarm Must have
been a still one
Have you over thought what would
happen John If a fire ever got a good
chance around Hope Uouser
Have 17 I think of It every time I
go Into tho double decker They ire
simply traps If a fire ever started In
the basement of No 01 It would be a
mlraclo It anybody got out alive
How about Hope House Itself t Tbo
question showed uneasiness
Hope House la a dry old shell In
side It would go like tinder
Tho Ore tonight Is not down that
wayNo
No the teams turned up Favell
street
Is No 01 any worse than other num
bers
No Its better In some ways But
theres n bakery In tho basement They
fry greasy doughnuts over a cracked
stove Ono drop of grease catching
fire In the place might sweep a score
of children Into eternity
lheyal ltcbettSr R In tirniltrtban
In tuoTeiieincnC wouldnt luey 7 MuyCe
the beat thing you could do would be to
pray for No 01 to catch on fire when
the winds just right
John Gordon made no answer and
Barton asked drowsily
How about Mr Marsh You dropped I
me a line about the probability of his
having an Interest In helping Miss Andrew
drews financially
Mr Marsh Is tho landlord of No
Dl11
Dl11Shot
Shot You dont sayl The voice
was awake again Then the amount
of bin contribution to social settlements
Ia I not yet made public
Mr Marsh has been with me through
the district today He saw his own
tenement for the first time
chats n good story tell mo about
It The voice was again drowsy
Its too late David Gordon remon
strated
No It Isnt Im going to sleep here
I often do It starts the cough If I get
up again Im comfortable Youll
stay all night You know your room
Do tbota a good fellow I may want
you to help me harness up the cough
In the morning
Yes Ill stay If you wont me to
Are you comfortable tbcreT
Very much so old man Go ahead
with Mr Marsh
Gordon had not talked five minutes
before Barton was asleep an unnat
ural slumber more like death than
healthy refreshing of wearied power
Ills whole attitude was that of com
plete exhaustion The seal of death
was upon him
John Gordon stopped talking and the
tears rolled down his cheeks David
Barton was the dearest friend be bad
The two were ten years apart In age
but from the time when they first met
they bid been Instantly drawn to
gether and bad begun to love each
I
other
It was after 11 oclock and yet Gor
don hesitated to go to bed He almost
feared that Barton would never wake
up the pallor of his face the attitude
of tho body were so suggestive of the
great change
He was still sitting there his checks
still wet with the tear that ho did not
try to repress when William came In
softly on tiptoe
Therea a queer old lady outside
Mr Gordon says she wants to see Mr
Barton if It aint too late Shea a
mighty queer looking specimen She
wont go away and I thought maybe
youd go and see her
Barton Is asleep now He cant be
wakened Ask the lady to come Into
the half
Gordon went out drawing the cur
talus between the first room and the
Wide hallway and met In the hall the
visitor who was promptly ushered In
by Williams
She Will dressed In a remarkably old
fashioned style that struck John Gor
don as exceedingly Interesting rather
than grotesque She was very old at
least ninety but straight and vigor
ous Her keen blue eyes looked search
Ingly at John Gordon and she spoke
In a sharp but remarkably clear voice
Are you Mr Barton
No madam I am his friend Mr
Gordon Mr Barton Is I asleep and
not well What can I do for yon
Will you be seated
In a moment sir She placed up
on the floor a faded old carpetbag
took a handkerchief out of her pocket
carefully dusted one of the hall
scat and then sat down Aa she
took out the handkerchief a delicate
aroma was wafted to John Gordon
It reminded him of the fragrance
bo remembered once while visiting the
East India Marina museum at Salem
Mass when the attendant opened pu
old sea chest lined with cedar and
packed with silk sliawls
John Gordon was now thoroughly
awake The sharp eyes looked at him
kindly
I am exceedingly sorry to hear that
Mr Burton ilL I very much wished
to see hIm First I must ba pardoned
for calling at this unseasonable hour
But I had the address and saw the
light and knew that newspaper men
kept queer hours I have called at
the office of tho paper and was told
Mr Barton was at his apartments I
must go on my journey tonight
John Gordon had not the remotest
Inkling as to the old ladya errand She
was evidently a person of great refine
ment and culture
How much of a friend are you to
Mr Barton r
The question was so direct and frank
that Gordon smiled
I am his dearest friend
Man or woman the old lady asked
with a twinkle of the eyes that made
John Gordon smile again
My friend has never bad any love
affair He Is a confirmed bachelor
Ah dont deceive yourself young
man I am old enough to be your
grandmother your greatgrandmother
almost and I have seen a great deal of
the world But pardon me I must tell
you what I came for
baitthat
that hung from a ellk cord tied about
her wrist All she opened the bag the
same delicate aroma penetrated the
hall again
She handed a card to Gordon He
took It andread
