HJI "Ltmt nighty wo were dancing all
BJjD K ui at tho 'Ati. I can scarcely bo-
Bf , Mf It vu ieJs than twelve hours
I ago! Tho calendar on my desk has n
motto for each leaf. Today's Is this:
'Kvcry man carried his fate on a rib
and about his neck.' I.aBt night I
would lmvo smiled at that, perhaps;
today I nay to myself, 'U'h true It's
truol' Two llttlu hours ago I could
have sworn that whatever happened
lo mo Bassoon would Buffer no harm.
"Judith, I could not aolil the meet
ing. You will know tho clrcum
Htanccs, and will nee that It was forced
upon mo. Hut though wo met on tho
Held, 1 kept my promlso. Sassoou did
not fall by my hand."
Sho had begun to tremble so that
tho paper shook In her hands, nnd
from her breast, shattered by her
quick breathing, tho brown Jeosnmluo
(totals dusted down In her lap. It was
8omu moments beforo sho could calu
herself sulllclontly to rend on.
"Ho fired nt tho signal and tho shot
went wide. I throw my pistol on the
ground. Then u bethel maddened by
my refusal to Are, I cannot tell ho
turned Ills wenpon nil nt onco and shot
himself through thu breast. It wns
over In nn Instant. Tho seconds did
not guesB do not even now, for It
happened but nn hour ago. Ab tho
codo decrees, their backs wero turned
when tho shots wero fired. Hut thoro
were circumstances I cannot touch
Uxn to )ou which mado them disap
prove which mado my facing him
just then seem tinchlvalrous. 1 saw
It In Ilrlstow's face, and liked him thn
better for It, even whllo It touched
my pride. They could not know, of
course, that I did not Intend to fire.
Well, ou nnd they will know It now!
And Hrletnw hna my pistol; ho will
find It undischarged thank God,

"Hut will that matter to you? If
ou loved Snssuon, 1 shall always in
your mind stand as tho Indirect cause
of his death! It Is for this reuBon I
am going away I could not bear to
look In your accusing eyes nnd hear
you say It. Nor could I benr to stay
here, n reminder to you of such n
horror. If you lovo mo, you will wrlto
nnd call mo back to you. Oh. Ju
dith, Judith, my own dear lovo! I
prny God you will!"
Sho put tho lottor down nnd laid
her face upon It. "Ucauty! Hcauty!"
sho whispered, dry-oyed. "I novor
know! I novor know! Hut It would
hnve mndo no difference darling. I
would hnvo forglvon you nnythUg
everything! You know that, now,
.dear! You hovo been certnln of It nil

empty to mo!"
Hut when tho faded roso-colored
gown nnd tho poor tlmo-yollowcd slip
pers hnd bon Inld back In tho hair
cloth trunk: whon. her door onco moro
unbolted, sho lay In her bed In tho dim
glow of tho readlng-lnmp, with hor
curling allvory hnlr drifting ncrosa tho
pillow and tho lottor bonenth It, nt
last tho tears camo coursing down hor
And with tho loosonlng of her tenrs,
grndunlly nnd softly camo Joy Infi
nitely deeper than tho ungulsh and
senso of botrnyal. It poured upon her
llko a trembling Hood. Long, long ago
ho had gono out of tho world It was
only his memory that counted to her.
Now that could no longer spoil pain
or emptlnoBs or denial. It was engold
ened by n now light, and In that light
sho would wnlk gently nnd smilingly
to tho end.
Sho found thu slender golden chain
that hung nbout her neck nnd oponcd
tho little blnck locket with Its circlet
of laureled pearls. And as sho gazed nt
tho fnco It held, which tlmo hnd not
touched with change, tho soyid of
Shtrluy'B harp camo softly In through
tho window. Sho was playing an old
fashioned Bong, of thn Bort who know
hor mother loved best.

Tho Rmllo wns still on her lips whon
sho fell asleep, and tho little locket
8tlll lay in hor lingers.
When the Clock Struck.
"Sorrow weeps Borrow sings," As
Shlrloy plaed thnt night, tho old Hub
Inn proverb kept running through her
mind. When sho had pushed tho gold
harp Into Its corner sho throw horolf
upon a broad sofa In n feathory drift
of chintz cushions nnd dropped her
forehead In hor lncod lingers A gilt
framed mirror hung on tho opposite
wnll, out of which her sorrowful brood
ing eyes looked with nn expression of
dumb nnd weary suffering.
Hor confused thoughts rncod hither
and thither What would bo tho ond?
Vvou d Valiant forgol after n tlmoT
ould ho marry Miss Knrgo, per
haps? Tho thought caused hor a atab
of anguish. Yet ho herself could not
marry him. Tho barrier' wns Impas
sablo! Hho wns still lying listlessly nmong
tho cushions when a stop Bounded on
thu Kirch nnd sho heard Chilly Husk's
olco In tho hell. With henvj hands
Shlrloy put Into placo her disheveled
hair and roso to meet him.
"I'm awfully selfish to como to
night," ho pnld awkwardly; "no doubt
ou nro tired out."
Sho disclaimed tho wcnrlncss thnt
dragged upon her spirits llko leaden
weights, nnd made him welcomo with
her usual cordiality. Sho was, In fact,
rulloved nt his coming. At'Damory
court, tho night of tho ball, when she
had come from tho gnrden with hur
lips thrilling from Valiant's kiss, she
hnd suddenly mot his look. It hnd
seemed to lipid n Htnrtled reallzntlon
thnt sho had rememberod with a re
morseful compunction. Slnco thnt
night ho hnd not been nt Rosewood.
RntiBton hnd lighted n plno-knot In
tho (lroplncc, nnd tho walls wero shud
dering with crimson shadows. Her
hand wns shielding her eyes, and ns
sho strove to fill tho gnps In their
somewhat spasmodic conversation
with tho trivial Impersonal things that
belonged to their old Intimacy, tho
tiny flickering Humes seemed to bo
darting unfriendly fingers plucking at
her secret. Loaning from her nest of
cushions sho thrust tho poker Into
tho glowing resinous mnss till sparks
whizzed up tho chimney's blnck maw
In a torrent.
"How they fly!" sho snld. "Hlckoy
Snyder calls It raising a blizzard In
Hades. I used to think they Hew up
to tho sky nnd became tho littlest
stars. What a pity wo have to grow
up nnd lenrn bo much! I'd rather
hnvo kept on believing thnt when tho
red leaves In tho woods whirled about
In n circle tho fnirles wero dancing,
nnd that It was tho gnomes who put
tho cocklo-bura In tho hounds' cars."
Sho had been talking nt random,
gradually becoming shrlnkingly con
scious of his constrained nnd stum
bling manner. Sho had,' however, but
half defined his errand whon he camo
to It nil In n burst.
"I I can't get to It, somehow, Shlr
toy," ho said with sudden desperation,
"but hero It Is. 1'vo como to ask you
to mnrry me. Don't stop me," ho
went on hurriedly, lifting his hand:
"whntover you eny, I must toll you.
l'vo been trying to for months nnd
months!" Now thnt ho had started,
It camo with a boyish vohemenco that
both chilled and thrilled her. Even
In her own desolation, and shrinking
nlmost unbearably from the avowal,
tho hopo nnd brightness In his volco
touched her with pity. It scorned to
her thnt llfo wns n strange Jumblo of
unescnpable and incomprehensible
pain. And all tho whllo, In the young
volco vibrant with feeling, her cring
ing car wns cntchlng Imagined echoes
of that other volco, graver and more
self-contained, but shaken by tho snmo
pnsslon, In thnt Iteration of 'I ovo
you! I lovo you!"
His nnswer enmo to hln Jlnnlly In
hor silence, and ho released hor hands
which ho had caught In his own. They
dropped, limp nnd unresponsive, In
her lnp. "Shirley," ho said brokonly,
"mnybo you can't caro for me yet.
Hut If ou will marry me, I I'll bo
content with so llttlo. till you do."
Sho shook her head, her hair mak
ing dim llnshes In the firelight. "No,
Chilly," she said. "It makes me
olVJr ill" I
Stooping, She Looked at It Closely.
She Started as She Did So.,

"I won't glvo up." ho said incohor
ontly. "I can't glvo up Not so long

Ho stopped suddenly, for sho was

llcultly. "I asked him."
There was a silence, whllo ho gazed
nt hor, breathing despair Then ho
triad to laugh.
"All right." ho Bald hoarsely. "It
It doesn't mutter. Don't worry."
She stretched out her hand to him
In a gesture or wistful pain, and he
hold It ,i momont between both ol
his, then released It and wont hur.
As tho door closed, Shlrloy sat
down, her head dropping Into her
handfl llko n Btorm-broken flower. Val
iant had ncccptcd tho flnnllty of tho
situation. With a wnvo of deeper
hopelessness thnn had yet submerged
her, shn realized that, against her own
decision, something deep within hor
had taken shy nnd secret comfort In
his stubborn mnsctillno refusal.
Against nil fnct, In face of tho Impos
sible, her heart had been clinging to
this ns though his love might even
attain tho miraculous and somewhere,
somehow, recrento circumstance. Hut
now ho, too, hnd bowed to tho decree
A kind of utter apathetic wretched

An hour dragged slowly by and at
length Bho roso nnd went slowly up
tho stnlrs. Her head felt curiously
heavy, but It did not acho. Outside
her mother's door, ns was her custom,
she paused mechanically to listen. A
tiny pencil of light struck through tho
darkness nnd painted n spot of bright
ness on her gown. It came through
tho kcyholo; the lamp In her mother's
room wns burning. "Sho has fallen
nslcep nnd forgotten It, she thought,
nnd softly turning tho knob, pushed
tho door noiselessly open und entered
A moment sho stood listening to the
low regular breathing of tho sleeper.
Tho readlng-lnmp shed n shaded glow
on tho pillow with Its spread-out sil
ver hair, nnd on tho dellcnto hands
clasped loosely on tho covorlcL Shir
ley camo closo nnd looked down on
tho placid fnco. It was smooth ns n
child's nnd n smllo touched It lightly
ns If somo pleasant sleep-thought hnd
just laid rosy fingers on tho dreaming
lips. Tho light cuught nnd sparkled
from something bright that lay be
tween her mother's linnds. It wns the
enamel brooch thnt held hor own bnby
curl, nnd aho saw suddenly thut what
sho had nil her llfo thought wns a
solid pondnnt, wns now open lockot

that tho plcturo must bo Sossoon's,
and a quick" thrill of pity nnd yearn

ly. Sha started ns Bho did so, for the
inco on tho llttlo disk of Ivory was
that of John Vnllnnt.
An Instant sho stored unbollovlngly
Then recollection of tho resemblance
of which Vnllnnt had told hor rushed
to her, nnd sho realized thnt It must

shocked and confounded her. Why
