"Agatha Redmond, can 'you hear
Sho caught tho volco faintly, as if
It wero a child's cry.
"I'm right hero, yes; only wait Just
n eccond." Sho could not lnstnntly
free herself from her sandy coverings,
but sho wns wido awako almost at
tho first words James had spoken.
Faint as the voice had been, she
recognized tho natural tones, the
strongest ho had uttered sinco coming
out of the water.
Tho night had grown cold and dark,
and at first sho was a trifle bewilder
ed. She was also stiff and sore, al
most beyond bearing. She had to
creep along tho sand to where Jim
lay. Tho flro had burned wholly out,
and tho sand felt dninp as she crawled
over it. AVuen sho camo near, she
reached out her hand and laid it on
Jinfo forehead. Ho was shivering
"You poor man! And I sleeping
whllo I ought to bo taking care of
jou! I'll make tho flro and get somo
milk; there is still a little left."
As she tried to make her aching
bones lift her to her feet, she became
aware that tho man was fumbling at
Sis coverings and trying to say some
thing. Sho bent down to hear his
words, which were incredibly faint.
"I don't want any flro or any milk.
I only wanted to know if you wero
there," he said diffidently, as if
ashamed of his childishness.
Sho leaned over him, speaking gen
Jy and touching his head softly with
her firm, cold hands.
"You're a little better now, aren't
vou. after your sleep? Don't you feel
3 little stronger?"
"Yea, I'm better, lots better," he
rhlHDered. "I must have been sleep
ing for ages. "When I woke up I
thought I had a beastly chill or some
thing, but I'm all right now; only
BUddenly I felt as if I must know if
rou wero there, and if It was you."
He smiled at his own words, and
Agatha was reassured.
"I think you'll bo still better for a
little milk." she said, and crept away
to got tho pail, which had been hid
den on a shelf of rock. When she
samo back with It, James tried man
Tully to sit up; but Agatha slipped
in arm under his neck, in skilful
nurso fashion, and held tho bucket
while ho drank, almost greedily. As
he sank back on his bed he whisper
ed: "You are very good to take care
"Oh, no; I'm only too glad! And
now I'm going to build up the fire
again; your hands are quite cold."
"No, don't go," ho pleaded. "Pleaso
stay hero; I'm not cold any more.
And you must go to sleep again. I
ought not to havo wakened you; and,
really, I didn't mean to."
"Yes you ought. I'vo had lots of
sleep; I don't want any more."
"It's dark, but it's better than it
was that other night, isn't it?" said
"Much better," answered Agatha.
James visibly gathered strength
from tho milk, and presently ho took
somo moro. Agatha, watched, and
when ho had finished, patted him
approvingly on tho hand. "Good boy!
You'vo done very well," sho cried.
"I was so thirsty, I thought tho
whole enrth had run dry. AVill you
think mo very ungratoful If I say now
I wish it had boon water?"
"Oil, no; I wish rfo, too. But Mr.
FTand could only get us a little bl'
from a spring, for thoro Isn't any
It was somo tlmo boforo Jim mado
out to lnqulro. "Who's Mr. Hand?"
"He's tho man that ho) pod ub out
of tho water when wo hecamo ex
hausted." Agatha hesitated to speak of tho
niglit'B experience, uncertain how far
Jim's memory carried him, and not
knowing how n sick man, in his
weakness, might bo affected. Still,
now that he Boomed almost himself
ngaln, savo for tho chill, sho ventured
to icfer to tho event, speaking In a
matter-of-fact way, as if such endur
ance toBts woro tho most natural
ovents in tho world. JnmeB' speech
was quito coherent and distinct, but
very Blow, as if tho efforts to speak
camo from tho depths of a profound
"Hnnd that's a good namo for him.
I thought it was tho hand of God,
which plucked mo, like David, or
Jonah, or somo such person, out of
tho seething billows. But I didn't
think of thero being a man behind."
Then, after a long silence, "Where
"Do's gono off to find somebody to
help us got nway from hero; a car
rlago or wagon of somo sort, and
somo food and clothes."
Something caused Jim to ejaculate,
though quito foobly, "You poor
thing!" And then ho asked, very slow
ly, "Whero is 'here'?"
"I don't know; and Mr. Hand
'And wo'ro lost our tag," lushed
Agatha couldn't resist tho laugh,
though tho weakness in Jim's voir
was almost enough to make her wcop
"Yes, we've lost our tags, morc's
tho pity. Mr. Hnnd thinks wo'ro
either on tho coast of Malno, or on
an island somewhere near tho coast.
I myself think it must at least bo
Nova Scotia, or possibly Newfound
land. But Hand will find out and bo
back soon, nnd then we'll got away
from here and go to somo placo -whero
we'll all bo comfortable."
Agatha stole nway, and with much
difficulty succeeded in kindling tho
fire again. She tended it until a good
steady heat spread over tho rocks, and
then returned to James. Sho curled
up, half sitting, half lying, against
Clouds had risen during tho recent
hours, and it was much dnrkcr than
the night bpfore had been. The ocenn.
washing Its million pebbles up on tho
little beach, moaned nnd complained
Incessantly. In tho long interval be
tween their talk, Agatha's head would
fall, her eyes would close, and sho
would nlmost sleep; but nn under
current of anxiety concerning her
companion kept her always at tho
edge of consciousness. James him
pelf nppeared to havo no desire to
sleep. Ho was trying to pleco to
gether, In his mind, his conscious and J
unconscious memories. At last ho
"I guess I haven't been much good '
for a while have I?"
Agatha considered beforo replying, i
"You were quito exhausted, I think;
and wo -feared you might bo ill."
'And Handy Andy got my Job?",
She laughed outright at this, as much
'for the feeling of reassurance it gave
her as for tho Jest itself.
"Handy Andy certainly had a Job,
with us two on his hands!" sho laugh
ed. "I bet ho did!" cried James, with
more vigor than he had shown before.
"He's a great' man; I'm for him!
When's he coming back?"
"Early in the morning, I hope," said
Agatha, swallowing her misgivings.
"That's good," said James. "I think
I'll he about and good for something
myself by that time."
There was another long pause, so
long that Agatha thought James must
have gene to sleep again. He thought
likewise of her, it appeared; for when
ho next spoke it was In a careful

mond?" "Yes. Indeed; quite. Do you want

trouble that night's awful trouble?'
Ho seemed to be wholly lost as to
time. "Did you come off without any
serious injury? Do you look like your
self, strong and rosy-cheeked again?"
Agatha replied heartily to this, and
her answer appeared to satisfy James
for tho moment. "Though," sho
added, "here in tho dark, who can
tell whether I havo rosy cheeks or
"True!" sighed James, but his sigh
was not an unhappy one. Presently
he began once more: "I want to
know, too, if you weren't surprised
that I know your name?"
"Well, yes a little, when I had tlmo
to think about it. How did you know
James laughed. I meant to keep
It a secret, always; but I guess I'll
tell, after all just you. I got it from
the program, that Sunday, you know."
"Ah, yes, I understand." Sho
didn't quite understand, at first; for
thero had been other Sundays and
other songs. But she could not weary
him now with questions.
As they lay there tho slow, monoto

filling the universe with Its soft but
insistent sound and echoes-of sound.
At tho back of her mind, Agatha
heard it always, low, threatening, and
strong; but on tho surface of hor
thoughts, she was trying to dccldo
what sho ought to do. Sho was
thinking whether 'sho might question
hor companion a little concerning
himself, when he answered her, in
part, of his own accord.
"You couldn't know who I am, of
course: James Hambleton, of Lynn.
Jim, Jimmy, Jimsy, Bud I'm called
mosc anything. But I wanted to toll
yoii In fact. that'B what I waked up
expressly for I wanted to tell you "
lie paused so long, that Agatha
leaned over, trying to seo his face.
Tiio violence of tho chill had passed.
His eyes woro wido open, his fnco
alarmingly pale. Sho felt a sudden
qualm of pain, lest illness and ex
haustion had wrought havoc In his
frnmo deopor than sho know. But as
sho bent over him, his features light
ed up with his rare smile an expres
sion full of happiness and peace. Ho
lifted a hand, feebly, and sho took
it In both hor own. Sho felt that
thus, hand in hand, they woro nearer;
that thus sho could better bo of help
"I wanted to toll you," ho began
again, "that whatovor happens, I'm.
glad I did it."
"Did what, dear friend?" ques
tioned Agatha, thinking in hor heart
that tho fover had sot hla wits to
"Glad I followed tho Faco and tho
Volco," ho answered feobly. Agatha
watched him closely, torn with anxie
ty. She couldn't bear to see him
Buffor this man who had so suddenly
become a friend, who had been bo
brave and unselfish for her sake, who
had been so cheerful throughout their
night of trouhln

of a gentle tonic, with
a building action on the
womanly system. Ifyouare
weak you need Cardui,
the woman's tonic, because
Cardui will act directly on
the cause of your trouble.

success. It must be good.

Mrs. Effie Graham, of
Wiilard, Ky., says: "I
was so weak I could
hardly go. I suffered,
nearly every month, for 3
years. When I began to
take Cardui, my back hurt
awfully. I only weighed
99 pounds. Not long after,
I weighed 115.' Now, I
do all my work, and am
in good health." Begin
taking .Cardui, today.
"I told old Aleck." James went on,
"that I'd havo to Jump tho fence; but
that was ages ago. I've been har
nessed down so long that I thought
I'd gone to sleep, sure enough." Aga
tha thought certainly that now he
wa3 delirious, but sho had no heart
to stop his gentle earnestness. Ho
went on: "But ' you woke mo tin,.
And I wouldn't have missed this last
run, not for anything. 'Twas a great
night, that night on the water, with
you; and whatever happens, I shall
always think that worth living for;
yes, well worth living for.
James' voice died away Into inco-
herence and at last Into silence.
Agatha, holding his hands in hers,
watched him as he sank away from
her Into somo realm whither sho
could not follow. Either his hour of
sanity and calmness had passed, and
fever had taken hold upon his sys-
item; or fatigue, mental and physical.
had overnowered him onco more.
Presently she dropped his hand gen
tly, looked to the coverings of his
couch, and settled herself down again
But no more sleep camo to her
eyes that night. She thought over all
that James had said, remembering
his words vividly. Then her thoughts
went back over tho years, recalling
sho knew not what Irrelevant mat
ters from the past. Perhaps by some
underlying law of association, thero
camo to her mind, also, the words of
tho song she had sung on tho Sunday
which James had referred to
"Free of my pain, freo of my burden
At last I shall seo thee "
What ages it was since she had
sung that song! And this man, this
James Hambleton, It appeared, had
heard her sing it; and somehow, by
fato, ho had been tossed into tho
same adventure with herself.
Unconsciously, Agatha's generous
heart began to swell with pride in
James' strength and courage, with
gratitude for his goodnes"s to her,
and with an almost motherly pity for
his present plight. She would admit
no moro than that; but that, she
thought, bound her to him by ties
that would never break. Ho woul(.
always bo different to her, by reason
of that night and what sho chose to
term his splendid heroism. Sho had
seen him in his hour of strength, that
hour when tho overman makeB half
gods out of mortals. It was tho heart
of youth, plus tho endurance of tho
man, that had saved them both. It
had been a call to action, dauntlcssly
answered, and ho himself had avowed
that the struggle, tho effort, oven the
final pain, wero "worth living for!"
Thinking of hlB whlto faco and feeblo
volco, she prayed .that tho high gods
might not regard them worth dying

but thoro waB no answer to that If.

Tho soft rain cast a pall over tho
ocean, so that only a small patch of
sea was vlslblo; and it flattened tho
waves until tho blue-flashing, whlto
enpped sea of yesterday waB now a
smooth, gray surfaco, touched hero
and there by a bit of frothy scum.
Agatha looked out throughtho deep
curtain of mist, rememboolng tho
night, tho Jcanno D'Arc, and hor re-
ccnt peril. Most vividly of all sho
( heard in her momory a volco shouting.
, "Keep up! I m coming, Ira coming!

I Her hardest task was to movo their
camp up into tho edge of tho brush-
wood, where they might havo tho
shelter of tho trees. Thero was a
place, near iho handlo of tho sickle,
whero tho rock-wall partly disap-
peared, and tho undergrowth from tho
cliff reached almost to tho bench. It
was from hero that Hand had begun
his ascent; and hero Agatha choso a

She coaxed James to his feet and
helped him, with some difficulty, up to
the moro sheltered spot. Ho was
stronger, physically, now in his deliri

of sanity in tho night. She made him
sit down whllo sho ran back to gather
an armful of tho fir boughs to spread
out for his bed; but Bho had scarcely
started back for tho old camp before

until at last his knees weakened under

They wero near tho bayberry bush,
though entirely out from its protec
tion. As tho drizzling rain settled
down thicker and thicker about them,
Agatha tried again. Slowly sho
coaxed James to his knees, and slowly
she helped him creep, as sho had crept
toward him in the night, along the
stones and up into tho sheltered cor
ner under tho bayberry. It was only
a little better than the open, and it
had taken such prodigies -of strength
to get there!
Agatha mado a pillow for James
head and sat by him, looking earnestly
at his flushed faco; and from her heart '
sho sighed, "Ah, dear man, it was too
hard! It was too hard!"
It was a long and weary wait for
help, though help of a most efficient
kind was on tho way. Agatha had
beon looking and listening toward the
upper wood, whither Hand had disap
peared. Sho had even called, from
tlmo to tlmo, on tho chance that sho
could help to guldo tho assisting
party back to tho cove. At last, as she
listened for a reply to her call, she
heard another sound that set her won
dering; it was tho p-p-potor-peter of a
motor boat. Sho loooked out over the
small expanso of ocean that was visi
ble to her, but could see nothing. Nev
ertheless tho boat was approaching, as
ita puffing proclaimed. It grew more
nnd moro distinct, and presently a
strong volco shouted "Ahoy! Are you
Threo times tho shout camo. Agatha
mado a trumpot of her hands and an
swered with a call on two notes, clear
rand strong. "All right!" came back:
and then, "Call again! We can't find
you!" And so she called again and
again, though there woro tears in her
eyes and a lump in her throat for
very relief and Joy. When her eyes
cleared, she Baw the boat, and watched
while it anchored -well off tho rockB;
then two men put asboro in a row-'
"And whero aro our patients?" camo
a deep volco from tho rocks.
"This way, air. I think mademoi

bly the volco of Mr. Hand.
And thero they found Agatha, kneel
ing by James and trying to coax him
to his feet. "Quick, they havo como!
You will bo carod for now, you will be
well again!" sho was saying. She saw
Hand approach and heard him say:
"This way, Doctor Thayer, Tho gen
tleman' is up here undor tho trees'
and then, for tho flrst time in aU tho
long ordeal, Agatha's nerves broke and
her throat filled with sobs. As the ex
chauffeur came near, she reached a
hand up to him, while with the other
she covered her weeping eyes in
"Oh, I'm so glad you've cornel I'm
so glad you've come!" she tried to say,
but it was only a whisper through her
"I'm sorry I was goBe so kag," said
Hand, touching her timidly oa the
"'' t-doctor to take cart ot
hii,' she begged in th faintest f
voiee; and then he crept awy,
thinking to hide her nervea until she
could come to herself again. But
Hand followed her to the niche in the
rocks where Bho fled, covered her with
something big and warm, and before
she knew it he had made her- drink a
cup that was comforting and good.
Then he gave her food in little bits
from a basket, and sweet water out of
a bottle. Agatha's soul revived "within
her, and her heart became brave
again, though sho Btlll felt as If she
could never move from her hard, damp
resting placo among the rocks,
"You Btay thoro, pleaBe, Mademoi
selle," adjured Mr. Hand. "When we
get the boat ready I'll como for you."
Then, standing by her in his submis
sive way, he added a thought of his
own: "It's very hard, Mademoiselle, to
seo you cry I"
"I'm not crying," shrieked Agatha,
though her volco waB muffled in her
"Very well, Mademoiselle," acqui
esced tho poljto Hand, and departed.
Two men could not havo been found

needle, that friend of man in pain, was
brought into use; and presently they
were able to leavo the cove. Doctor
Thayer and Mr. Hand carried James
to the rowboat, and tho engineer, who
had stayed in the launch, helped 'them

to doubt whether his sphero was

"I haven't found out yot where we

Wheu you get goon and ready, you
can tell me all about it. In the mean
