(9, 1JJ, by llcClur Nwppr Syndlett.)
There fell a sudden silence In the
next room, nnd Mr. Carver, who hnd
with dllllculty kept himself uwuke,
thus far in anticipation of Just Huch
u silence, looked up siiHptcIously. lie
rustled the evening paper nervously

Half way to the door of his daugh
tcr's room, Mr. Carver puusocf, for the
alienee wns suddenly broken by u dis
turbing sound, a deep, recking sob. It
uits followed by another, and many
more, and the unhappy father, himself
groaning this time, sank back Into
the morris chair, mopping his brow
with something akin to desperation.
For two years now ho hnd been en
gaged In the task of bringing up Molly,
uul during that period he had found
life rather dllllcutt, n succession of
problems which called for Immediate
attention. Hut no previous clash of
arms between father and daughter hnd
been nt all comparable with this one.
A week ago Molly had announced
her engagement to Itlchnrd Field. Her
father had nt onco advanced strenu
ous objections to the young man, and
uiir was on. Molly's attitude hnd been
ono of open deflnnce, which hnd been
tinnfTected by any of the measures
which her father chose to employ.
Ho had overlooked the fact that
Twentieth century daughters uro not
to bo governed by Eighteenth century
methods. It did not sutllco In these
days to put one's foot down. Molly
had remained unmoved by threats and
promises. And yet Mr. Carver admit
ted to himself sheepishly that perhaps
It hnd been n b'lt unnecessary to shut
her up In her room on a diet of bread
and water I
But Itlchnrd Field f Tho shadow
In tho room deepened, and tho tortured
father forgot for n moment even those
terrible sobs as ho tried vainly to fight
off tho specter which peered nt him
from tho dim, ghostly corners. It was
another Itlchard Field thnt he saw
elder and grayer nnd sadder.
"Hut, dad," ho could hear his daugh
ter's volco ngnln pleading, "what If
Dick Is poor? He won't bo very long."
Ho heard his own Impatient unswer.
"Poor I Who mentioned poverty? I
tell you, I know his father, and I
would rather see you In your grave
than married to his son!"
Ho looked up suddenly from his rev
erie. Tho specter In tho shadows was
holding Its sides with silent lnughter.
"Of course you would," It sputtered.
"Who would wnnt his conscience for a
son-in-law?" Mr. Carver started an
erlly. A hard, dry sob from tho next
loom mndo him wince. The specter
laughed nguln, nnd went on:
"Poor old Dick Field," it said. "He
wns u rich ninn till you met him.
Skinned him clenn, you did. Every
cent. Committed suicide, poor fellow.
What clso could ho do?"
"That's n lie." cried Mr. Carver,
leaping to his feet.
"Is It?" mocked the ghostly voice.
"Then let your daughter marry his
"I can't," groaned tho man. Then, as
tho horrid weeping broke forth In the
next room with renewed vigor, he
bowed his face In his hands. "I will,"
ho cried. "She can marry anyone she
likes, If she will only stop thnt. I never
heard her cry like thnt before. I tell
you she can!" Ho leaped to his feet
and sprang townrd tho door.
"It's too Inte," said tho specter voice.
With an angry muttering .Sir. Carver
iprang to turn tho electric light switch,
but paused in the act. Ills step sound
ed hnrshly In tho sudden silence, for
the sobbing In the next room hnd ab
ruptly ceased. He stood as If trans
fixed, gazing nt the closed door. What
cauld be happening thero?
"Poor little kid." he muttered to him
self. "I've been n brute." Ho henrd
a whirring, buzzing sound, then a
crash, as of broken, fragile stuff. Then
silence again complete.
It was unendurable. Tho shaken
father strode to tho door, his resolu
tions cast to the four wnda. Turning
tho key In the lock, he throw wide the
door. Tho room was empty. Did he
lmaglno It, or was there n hollow,
satirical laugh behind him?
"Gone 1" For n moment ho felt only
an overpowering sense of loss. Then
ho rushed to the opon window. There
wns no sign of Molly except a few tell
talo scratches on the window sill. Hut
tho sobs? Hnd ho not Just heard ter
rible, heart-breaking cries which hnd
broken down his reslstnnce as nothing
else hnd done? Dully ho glanced about
tho room once more.
From tho table near tho window
enmo u dull whirring note, as a pho
nograph whirled to a lazy, incon
sequential stop. Mr. Carver's gazo be
come fixed. Not her own volco?
Could those wretched cries, which
haunted him still, have been merely
riiechnnlcnl? A broken record on the
door answered him. As he bent closer
to tend its tltlo tho low chuckle nguln
sounded behind him. It wns "The
Mr. Carver laughed laughed as one
who Is determined to ho gnmo to the
end, whatever It costs.
"Well. Dick," ho nddressed tho black
shadow In the far corner of tho room.
