Ho rnlsod his head, a llttlo flushed
nnd with eyes brilliant, lighted a
candle, sonlod tho letter with tho ring
ho woro nnd dispatched It.
Thereafter ho snt looking Into tho
growing dusk, watching tho palo
lamps ot tho constellations deopen to
green gilt against tho lnplslnzull ot
tho sky, nnd Intoning lo tho Insect
noises dulling Into tho woven chorus
of evening. Undo Jefferson was long
In returning, nnd ho grew Impntlont
llnnlly and began to prowl through tho
dusty corridors Ilko a leopnrd, thon
to tho front porch nnd flnnlly to tho
driveway, listening at every turn for
tho familiar slouching step.
When nt longth tho old negro ap
peared, Valiant took tho noto he
brought, his heart beating rapidly,
and carried It hastily In to tho candlo
light. Ho did not open It at onco, but
sat for n full mlnuto pressing It be
tween his pnlms ns though to extract
from tho dellcnto paper tho beloved
thrill of hor touch. His hand Bhook
slightly ns ho drow tho folded lenves
from tho envelope. How would It be
gin? "My Knight of tho Crimson
Koso?" or "Denr Gnrdener?" (Sho nnd
called him Qardoner tho dny thoy had
But out tho roses) or perhaps oven
"Sweetheart?" It would not bo long,
ouly n mcro "Yes" or "Come to mo,"
perhnpa; yet oven tho shortost missive
had Us boglnnlng nnd Its ending.
Ho opened nnd read.
For an instant ho stnred unbellov
Ingly. Then tho pnper crnckled to n
bnll In hlH clutched hand, and ho made
n hoarse sound which wns half cry,
then sat perfectly still, his whole fnco
shuddorlng. Whnt ho crushed In IiIb
hand was no noto of tender lovo
Idirascs; It was an abrupt dlsmlsnal.
Tho staggering contretemps struck
tho color from his fnco nnd luft overy
nervo raw nnd quivering. To be "noth
ing to her. ns shn could bo nothlnc to
him?" Ho felt n ghastly inclination to
laugh. Nothing to her!
Presently, his brows frowning heav
ily, he upread out tho crumpled pa pur
and reread It with bitter bIowiiobs,
weighing each phrnso "Something
which bIio hnd learned since sho Inat
saw him, which lay between them"
Sho had not known It, thon, Inst night,
whon they had kissed boslde tho sun
dial! Sho had loved hltn then! What
could thero bo 'hat thrust them Irrov
Without stopping to think of thu
darkness or thut the frlondly .loors of
tho odlllce would bo closed, ho caught
up hlti hat and wont swiftly down the
drlvo to tho road, along which ho
Plunged breathlessly. The blue star
Bpangled sky was now streaked with
clouds Ilko fndod orchids, and tho
shadows on tho uneven ground under
his hurried feet mndu him glddv
Through tho din and hurly-burly of bis
thoughts ho . conscious of dimly,
moving shapes ncrot fences the
sweet breath of cows, nnd n negro pu
deutj-lan who greeted him In paS8iL
Ho won stricken suddenly with Uu
I thought thnt Shlrlej wns sufforlng,
too. It Beomod lncredlblo thnt ho
should now bo raging along a country
rond at nightfall to find something
that so horribly hurt thorn both.
It was almost dark savo for tho
starlight whon ho saw tho shadow of
tho squaro Ivy-grown splro rcnrlng
Blark from Its huddlo ot foliage
against tho blurred background. Ho
pushed open tho gnto nnd wont slowly
up tho worn path toward tho great
Iron-bound and hodcd door. Under
tho larches on either hnnd tho outlines
of tho grnvestonos loomed pallidly,
and from tho bell tower enmo tho faint
Inquiring cry of a smnll owl. Valiant
stood looking nbout him. Whnt could
hu learn hero? do rend no nnswor to
the riddle. A llttlo to ono Bldo of tho
path something showed snow-llko on
tho ground, nrd ho went toward It.
Nearer, ho saw that It was n mass of

railing. Ho bont over, suddenly noting
tho Bcent; It wna capo JeeBamlno.
With tho curious sensation ot almost
prescience plucking at him, ho took a
box of vestas from his pocket and
struck ono. It flared up Illuminating
a tint granite slab In which was cut
a namo nnd inscription: v
"KorKlve us our trespasses."
Tho sllonco seemed to crash to earth
Ilko a great looking-glass and shiver
Into a million plcceo. Tho wax dropped
from his flngorB and in tho superven
ing darkness a numb fright gripped
him by tho throat. Shirley had laid
these. Ihcre, on tho gravo ot the man
his father had killed tho capo Jessa
mines sho h,ad wnnted that day, for
hor mother! Ho understood.
it camo to him nt last that thero
was a chill mist groping nmong the
trees nnd thnt ho was very cold.
Ho went back along the Hed Road
Btumbllngly. Was this to be tho end
of tho dream, which ho had fancied
would lat forever? Could It bo that
sho was not for him? Was It no hoary
Ho that tho sins of tho fathers were
vUIted upon tho third and fourth gen
orntlon? Whon ho re-entered tho library tho
candlo was guttering In tho burned
wings of a night-moth. Tho place
looked all nt onco gnunt and desolate
and despoiled. What could Virginia,
what could Damory Court, bo to him
without hor? Tho wrinkled noto lay
on thu desk and ho bent suddenly with
n Bhnrp catching brenth and kissed It
Thero welled over him n wave of
rebellious longing. Tho cnndle sprend
to n hazy yellow blur. Tho walls fell
away. Ho utood under tho moonlight,
with his nrini about her, his lips on
hers and his heart beating to tho
sound of tho viollnB behind them.
He laughed a harsh wild laugh that
rang through thu gloomy room. Then
ho throw himself on tho couch nnd
hurled his fnco In his hands. Ho was
still lying thero when tho misty rain
wot dawn camo through tho shutters.

QUESTION RIGHT TO SWORD
Historic Relic Now In Possession of
University of Pennsylvania Has
Tho gold sword that Iouls XVI pre
sented to John Paul Jones in recogni
tion of tho light ho madu with tho Hon
llotnmo Richard against tho Serapls
has been presented to tho University
of Pennsylvania by Kdwurd C. Dale,
hon of tho Into Rlch.-.rd C Dale, a for
mer president of tho Society of Cincin
nati. Tho sword has been In the pos
session of tho Dalo family for moro
than n century.
This Is tho sword which Charles
Honry Hart, a local historian, de
clares now should bo In possession
of Admiral I)owy. It had been gon
ernlly nccopted that tho sword pasBud
by will of Commodore Jones to Com
modoro Dalo, a forbear of Richard C
Dale.. Mr. Hart donled thin. Hu do
elates that tho nword wus In posses
sluii of John Pnul Jones when ho died
In Pnrls, In 1732. nnd thnt Jane Tny
!m of Dumfries, Scotland, n sister of
Jnnea. went to Paris and took pr,SHe8
slon of everything left by u,0 ea
cast. "Rosebud Mcroutin," sum nit
ey wlthorlngly, "It would servo you
right for putting that toad In tho plat
If your hnnd would got nil ovor wnrtsl
I'm suro I hopo It will." Sho rescued
tho fnllon pleco of bnrk and an
nounced: "Tho collodion this after
noon hns amounted to n hundred do.
lnra nnd seven cents. And now, chH"
drcn, wo will skip tho catechism nnd
I will toll you a story."
Her nudltora hunched themselves
nearer, a doublo row of nttnntlve whltfl
nnd blnck faces, ns Rlckoy with a pre
liminary bnss cough, began In a drawl
ing tone whoso mimicry cnllcd forth
giggles of csctnsy.
"Thero wero onco two llttlo eletors

a battered whltcy silver dollar; bul
It waB n bright round gold dol'ar, right
out of tho mint. Llttlo Mary And little
Susy could hnrdly sleep that night for
thinking of what they could buy with
thoso (,'old dollars.
"ICarly noxt morning thoy went
down-town, hand In hand, to tho storo,
and llttlo Susy bought n bag of goober
peas, nnd sticks nnd sticks of strlpod
enndy, nnd a llmboc Jnck, nnd a gold

"Huh!" Bald tho captious Cozy.
"You can't buy n wax doll for a dollar
My littlest, littlest ono cost three, and
sho didn't havo a stitch to her back!"
"Shut up!" said Rickey briefly.
"Dolls were cheaper thon." Sho looked
nt tho row of llttlo negroes, goggle
eyed nt tho vision of such largess.
"What do you think llttlo Mary did
with her gold dollar? Sho loved dolls
nnd candy, too, but sho had hetud
about tho poo-oo-r heathen. Thero ws

them young enough to fnll In tho lire

Ho wnB going to Alnbnm to a canni

And then thoy happened to llnd the
