which was still disgracefully small.
At the age of twenty-four he had be

serviceal;le in his place, and he had no
fear of the loss of it; indeed he feared
rnueb more the prospect of retaining 1

gressive stishnes~s and the rude, obv
ous sig::s of self esteem.
It wVas my intention t-> call on him
at 12 o'clock and suggest that we take
luncheon together, but I was somewhat
delayed, and when I entered the hall
of the great building Donaldson was
just stepping out of one of the eleva
tors. I knew him instantly by de
There was the usual hurrying throng
Donaldson saw no one whom he knew,
and he gave no face a second glance,
but almost e-:ery one who had the op
portunity looked twice at him. It
would be hard to say why, for his ap
pearance was, on the whole, conven
tional. He was upward of six feet in
height, yet had not the look of a tall
man. is countenance was agrecablo
when one had come to know him, and
his brown eyes were capable of much
variety of expression; but, as a rule,
they seemed to be somewhat vacant.
Follow their glance, and it would lead
nowhere. Often the eyes of the blind
deceive in the same way, and it may
have been this appearance of focusing
his gaze upon a point where nothing
was visible to others that made Don
aldson's aspect notable.
When I spoke his Name, he turned
his glance upon me slowly and with a
slight, characteristic effort, as though
his attention were being withdrawn
unwillingly from some other object.
"Yes?" said he.
"You were going to luncheon. I sup
pose," said I. "Will you permit me to
offer you my card and to suggest that
"I was going to the Welleslea dairy,"
returned Donaldson, with a faint smile.
"Suppose we try Bertram's?" I sug
gested, naming the best of the down
town restaurants at that time. "As
you are my guest, I must guarantee
the cooking, and I am not familiar
with the Welleslea."
"I congratulate you, sir," he replied.
"Familiarity breeds both contempt and
dyspepsia; Bertram's, by all means."
His manner did not please me, though
it was courteous enough. It evidenced
that peculiar selfishness which Is bred
of despondency, that general disre
gard which springs from personal dis
satisfaction. Before we reached Ber
tram's I had said to myself, "This man
has been much overpraised."
We spoke of the aspect of business,
and what he said seemed common
place. Yet his words were like his
looks-slipping by, unobserved- Weeks
later I discovered with surprise that
Donaldson could look over the top of
my hat without stretching himself, and
at about the same time certain re
marks which he had made In that first
interview recurred to my mind, and I
saw how the foresight In them might
have been turned to my advantage.
At the moment, however, I was dis
appointed and felt disposed to abandon
my intention of offering Donaldson an
excellent position. I could see that
Hackett, who was waiting for us at
Bertram's, was not favorably Impress
ed at first. And altogether if Don
aldson had but known our minds he
would have had cause for great anx

thought of making to him meant no
les than a career if he should prove
All this was, in a sense, apart from
our interest in the young man as a
psychic. As to that matter we were
determiied upon an investigation If it
could be made without too great an.
in.rusion. During the past week we
had gleaned considerable information
about the story which Dr. Whiting of
Boston had so steadfastly concealed,
and it seemed to tAs to furnish by far
the best instance d! so called supernat
ural manifestation that we had yet en
countered- Therefore when the time
seemed ripe for It I said to him:
"Are you not the Mr. Donaleon who
had a singular experience in regard to

lying upon the tablecloth, opened and
"It is a disagreeable subject for more
reasons than one," said he. "Yet I as

Investigation of this subject. It iS
orobable tha't we shall give the re
mainde r of our lives to It, and we hope
to leave an important work behind
"I should not care to have the thing
published," said Donaldson, with a bit
I assured him that the usual anonym
ity would be preserved.
"The Society For Psychical Research
got after me once," said he. "I suc
ceeded in dodging It. You will under
stand that this is a subject one doesn't
like to speak about."
"I don't know," remarked Hackett
"Since we took up this thing, we've
been followed by a procession, and it's
getting longer every minute."
"A procession of what?" asked Don
aldson, with a laugh.
'That's the point," assented my part
Donaldson looked across the table.
There was a chair opposite him in
which nobody was sitting.
"Is this your only motive for seeking
-this interview?" he aske'i. And both
Hackett and I glanced Involuntarily
at the vacant place, as if expecting an
answer from that quarter. After a
pause which had a somewhat startling
effect I admitted, with hesitation, that
we had had a matter of business in
"As for the other thing," said Don
aldson, "if you take me for a psychic
marvel, you will be disappointed. In
one single instance"
Hackett checked him by a gesture.
"That's the whole of it," he said;
"one single instance which a practical
man can get a fair hold of ought to set
tle the question."
"There are many cases," I added,
"which are merely difficult to explain
genuine, perhaps, but too complicated
to repay study or to mark the individ
ual as possessing more than a slight
suprsnsitiveness; for we are al'. clair

Donaldson became noticeably excit
ed. His demeanor suggested that of
one who is struggling to repel a vague
accusation. His face took on a pecul
iar expression, and his voice, though
not louder than before, became more
Intense and vibrant.
"Do you take me for a clairvoyant?"
"I believe you to be one of the very
few men in the world who can abso
lutely prove that you possess such a
power," said I. "You saw half way

his head fell forward upon his hands,

and stared across the room. Then he
laughed nervously, as one whose feel

had a very strong impression that a
gentleman named Harold Whiting was
standing behind me. Whiting is one
of the fellows who were present when
-when that wretched thing happened.
I've rarely seen him since, and no
doubt he's now in Boston, vhere he
lives. Yet I could have sworn that he

"He's been out in the hall for the
last three minutes," said Hackett in a
peculiarly expressionless tone which
always means something with him.
"I've seen him standing by the door,
talking with two other men. He walk
ed away just before you looked over
Donaldson seemed dazed. He turned
again toward the doorway, which was
straight behind him, and at that in
stant Hackett pointed with his thumb
in the contrary direction. I then saw
that there was a mirror let into the
wall. It was rather high to give a
view of the door to a person sitting
down at our table, but Donaldson was
a tall man and sat erect.
"This is very remarkable," said Hack
There was a pause full of embar
rassment. For my own part I was
deeply distressed and Inclined to be
angry with Donaldson. He himself
was very nervous and ill at ease. He
sat there, wringing his hands gently
beneath the table, and I seemed to feel
that the palms of them were wet. Sud
denly a voice said:
"Why, deacon! Is it really you?"
We all started, as if detected in a
crime, and there stood Dr. Whiting at
"I passed the door just now," said he,
"and had a glimpse of your back, but
recognition didn't dawn upon me until
I was half way down stairs to the cafe.
I should have looked you up later."
He gave us a greeting, and we in.
vited him to take the vacant place at
"We were speaking of your friend's
remarkable experience," said I.
Whiting glanced hastily at Donald
."I don't know how you got him to
mention It," he said. "After the first
wonder of It had passed away he al-I
ways avoided the subject with, me. Be
yond question, Mr. Harrington, that
was the mnost completely marvelo.:s
thing that ever happened on this earth.
Why, he described to me"
"Don't, old chap," groaned Donald
son. "I hate to think of It. I have ex
plained to these gentlemen that it was
a wholly~ 'Isolated occurrence, that I
really have no unusual powers"
"Let us be the judges of that," said L.
"Give Dr. Whiting permission to tell

sincere In this matter," said Donaldsos
earnestly, "and I am unwilling to dis

"These are the facts," said Whiting
"Donaldson was in Harvard when I
was a student in the medical school
and a proctor 19 one of the buildings.
That's how I came to know him."
"Broke up a riot in my room," Inter
jected Donaldson. "We had knocked
down the chandelier. It's a proctor's
duty to preserve order. Whiting came
n with an Indian club in each hand
and preserved it."
"After graduation he came to New
York," continued Whiting. "His broth
er was here-Henry, about ten years
older than Donald. I was taking a spe
cal course of stbudy in this city at the
time. Henry Donaldson was a note
teller n the Dey Street bank, and he
had the misfortune to become involved
in the trouble there about three years
ago. You may remember It."
"Not definitely," said I.
"Somebody got away with $150,000,"
said Whiting. "Of course I need not
say that Henry Donaldson was entire
ly Innocent, but circumstances, and
men, too, conspired against him. He
was arrested and almost Immediately
released, but only that he might be
dogged by detectives.
"He was abnormally sensitive re
garding anything that affected his good
name, and he was always easily dis
couraged. He was convince~t that the
ombination against him was too strong
and that he must eventually be dis
graced and ruined. He could not bear
the prospect, and so he took a false
step to avoid it. He fled, and nobody
had the least idea where he had gone.
"Donaldson was ill in bed in some
rooms of mine up town. We supposed
that Henry knew where he was, but
the poor fellow had been so hounded
up and down and was so oppressed by
the disgrace that he had kept out of
everybody's way. My communication
to him about Donald was stolen by the
detectives. He received no word at
all, and, as we discovered long after
ward, he was led into the distressing
error of supposing that Donald was
disloyal to him in this trouble. Noth

"For a week or more the newspapers

own part I firmly believed that it was
"Almost a year later, however, we
got word that Henry had been seen in
a lumber camp .in the northwest. I
heard of it first and secretly attempted
an investigation, sending a detective
out into that region. His first commu
nication to me seemed favorable, and I
decided that it would be worth while
for Donald to go out there. I took two
or three fellows whom I could trust
into my confidence, and we agreed to
put up the necessary money. We all
wanted Henry Donaldson to come
back and face his accusers, and we be
lieved that we could clear him.
"We made a plan to lunch together
and have Donald with us and then dis
close the whole subject to him. So we
met about noon one day and went to a
private room in Hobart's restaurant up
town. Donald did not know what was
in the wind, but for some days his
mind had been running upon his broth
er, and he looked all broken up with it.
As he and I were going to Hobart's
that day he said to me:
"'I am sick with anxiety about Har
"'You don't believe that he Is dead?
"I never have,' he replied. 'I can't'
"Nothing more was said upon the
sabject just then, and it was not men
tioned while we were eating luncheon.
This was by agreement. Donald was
very silent during the meal. He ate
scarcely anything. He was pale and in
a peculiar state of nervous tension. I
observed him with considerable anxi
ety, for he looked like a man who is
going to break down.
"We had reached the cigars, and the
waiter was well out of the way. One
of the fellows made a sign to me to
open the subject that was on our
minds. I turned toward Donald. He
tarted as if from a dream and said In
hurried, strange voice:
"'Harry Is all right'
"Then the color rushed into his face,
hich had been very pale. He reeled

"'No,' he said; 'it'; all a mistake. He's

"Donald pledged us all to secrecy in
this matter, and I think the promise
has been fairly well kept. That after
on Donald and I made an investiga
ton into the case of Vinal and learned
that he had left New York and that,
his whereabouts were unknown. His
ife, who was a beautiful woman of'
fne descent, was living in this city, but
he had had no word of her husband~
In six weeks. She told me that he had
left the city suddenly upon some mat
ter of business which she did, not un
derstand. He had been In very bad
health, and she was extremely anxious
"That was all the Information that
e could get. About a week later
Donald got a cable message from his
brother. It came from IHo:lkong and
was addressed to my apartments. It
said: 'Am coming home; westward.
Everything all right.'
"By subsequent messages we traced
him to the Mediterranean and Gibral
tar and learned what steamer was
bringing him to this countr-y. He was
ll of acute gastritis when he arrived,
and I thought that we shoult hardly
get him off the steamer alive. But he
rallied and seemed on the road to
"It appeared that he had gone from
this country to Japan and had lived in
one of the smaller cities. He brought
photographs of his abode there and of
a view from a certain window. I have
never been able to be a skeptic upon
things occult since seeing that photo
graph. He told us that he had lived
almost in secret; that he had never
dared communicate with Donald for
fear that the message would fall into
wrong hands and reveal his hiding
"One day he was amazed to see Joe
Vinal at his door. Ho0w this man
traced him he never learned. Vinal
was dying. Only his purpose had sup
ported him through the latter part of
the journey. He made a coniplete rev
elation of the Inner facts of the bank
robbery, in which he himself was the
principal criminal. This statement was
sworn to before the American consul,
and a few days later Vinal died. Hen
ry Donaldson went to Hlongkong and
thence home, bringing the statement
whic was nnt into the hands of he
bank's omlcials, who used it to extort
as complete restitution as possible from
Vinal's accomplices, and the matter
was kept quiet through the usual In
fluences, except that a card was pub
lished exonerating Donald's brother.
He seemed to be perfectly satisfied
with this, though it was not very defi
nite. Really the poor fellow was done
with earth. He died as many men and
women die who might live, but have
not the will.
"In conclusion I have only this to
say: So far as we can learn Donald's
vision was perfectly accurate. It show
ed Vinal laying his written confession
before Henry Donaldson. But the vi
sion occurred about eight hours before
the event. I leave the explanation of
this phenomenon to any one who
thinks himself competent. I am not.
"You may be disposed to suggest
that Henry Donaldson had communi
cated with his brother unknown to
me. In regard to this I have not only
Donald's word, but Henry's, and you
will bear in mind that I attended Hen
ry in his last illness, so that, aside
from the lack of motive for his telling
me a falsehood, we must consider also
the respect that is usually accorded to
the statement of a dying man.
"Moreover. Henry could not have
communicated the fact of the confes
sion, because he knew nothing about
It himself until some hours after it
was known to us. It must be remem
bered also that Donald was entirely
Ignorant of his brother's whereabouts
even after he had bad the vision. He
had the sensation of being in that
room and of looking across the table
toward the window, and from the as
pect of the country he supposed that
the scene was in China."

The Man Who Stayed.
For one woman who dominates her
husband in China there arc doubtless
nine of the approved oriental stripe of
humility. Nevertheless Chinese humor
ous literature abounds in references to
henpecked husbands. Professor Her
bert Allen Giles of the University of
Cambridge told one of these stories:
Ten henpecked husbands resolved to
form a society to resist the imposition
of their wives. The ten wives heard of
the plan and while the meeting for or
ganization was in progress entered the
room in a body. Nine of the rebellious
husbands fled, but the tenth one re
tained his place, apparently unmoved
by the unexpected visitation.
The ten wives, after smiling con
temptuously on the one man who re
mained, went back to their homes, well
content with the success of their raid.
The nine husbands thereupon re
turned to their meeting, resolved to
make the heroic tenth man the presi
dent of the society.
When they entered the room. how

was found that he was dead. He had
