a lady and two
pying a seat In front of me. Tho lady
was neauy uresseil and looked so
bright and happy nnd so lovingly
amused her pretty children that I dis
carded a rather dull book and gavo myself
wholly up to watching my neighbors.
After a time something in her face
struck me as being strangely familiar,
but where I hod seen it and under what
circumstances, I had cot tho slightest
Backward over the years went my
thoughts, knocking at every dusty
chamber of -my brain, yet of no avail.
Suddenly an attitude unconsciously assumed
by the younger of the children,
a girl, furnished the key that unlocked
a long disused chamber, and I
remembered distinctly. I had seen her
before, but under such different circumstances
that it was a wonder that
I ever recalled tho greotly changed faco.
A fair faco with streaming eyes was
vividly Impressed on my mind by what
was nearly a tragedy, and to think that
this happy, smiling face was the same,
seemed incredible, yet so it was.
Although my Intorcst In her, twenty
years ago, was very great 1 could not
be so heartless as to break the spell
and rudely plunge her Into thnt past,
which was now so clearly forgotten.
Happily, sho was so engrossed with the
children that I was unnoticed. Silently
I watched her and thought that seldom
had it been my lot to see such a
happy woman. When the brakeman
called tho town of h - she gathered
tip her belongings, but before sho could
leave the car a stulwart follow rushed

and as this brouglil mo hi contact
with crime and misfortune ot all kinds,
It was a dull routine, seldom varied by
One morning a woman uas brought
lnaanslble to the police station. She
was well dressed and quite young.
She had somo money, but for some reason
hod tried to drown henolt. It waa
a simple story that the colored man,
who rescued her told. Ho had seon
her get off from an lnnmlig train as
It stopped at tho depot ami, almost reeling,
start toward the river. Suspecting
evil he followed her and arrived in
time to rescuo her from a suicide's
To a reporter the story was disappointingly
devoid ot sensation, and
tho articles found in her possession
clearly identified her, but told no story.
The girl was a good-looking Swede,
ani.that there wasuntoi.y alio could
tell If Bhe wpuld inndu her nn object
ot Interest to all tho polite reporters of
tho oily papers.
Someway wo alt took a fnnry to this
unfortunate girl, anil frequently
her at tho hospital, whero sho
was alowly recovering strength. When
reason was recovered she could not
speak to us, but to an interpreter sho
llatly rofused to make any explanations.
Despite her protests we know
there was n story behind the attempted
suicide and resolutely set about to ingratiate
ourselves Into her go od graces,
that the story might be told.
Aside from the. Intense competition
for a "scoop." we all wcro Irresistibly
drawn to this sad young girl, who
could only look at us with mournful
blue eyes and pould not speak a word
of our language. The eyes
told plainly ot tho effort to conceal,
but what It was wo wero unable to Imagine.
Two days before ahe was to resume
her Journey, I was promlsod her story.
Sho was to writ it and glvo It to mo
on the evening of her dopar.tu.ro.
At the appointed tun I was at the
hospital door, ouly to bo handed the
promised letter and to bo told that sho
had gono on tho morning tialn 1 was
deeply dlsuppolnted, fori had grown to
like thin Incomprehensible girl.
The only ucoo? that 1 got out of It
was tho announcement ot her departure,
for I did not tell tho boys anything
about It nor did I toll thorn ol tint existence
ot the letter.
When the day's work was ended I
hesitated lung before opening this letter,
In spite of ny past eagerness regarding
It It seemed to me as If a
pretty little romance
would lly awny, as my nlrvastlus had a
way of doing. The letter was written
In her owu bund and Inclosed was a
translation. A 1 read l was glad tho
nther boys know nothing of It, und I
determined then mil there that they
never should. Tho letter W1 as follows:
"My Friends, the Ueportorsi To,
ihow you that I appreciate your grl
tlndncss to mo whili an Inmate of the
hospital, lull! try lo tell you of the
anhappy event w hlch you havo been
puzzling over for wcolcs.
"Strango nnd unreasonable as It
nay seem to you, I am glad that I attempted
to drown myself, and oh! so
giad that the merciful Ood allowed mo
to lo rescued before 1 died. This may
iccm wild to you, but I mean what I
"It was five years ago that Olof
Swcnson began making love to ma I
was n child of thirteen years then, and
he a boy of nineteen. Wo loved each,
other ardently for two years. Thon
my mother conceived a violent dlsllko
for Dior, nnd os my father was completely
under her control he soon forbade
Olof to come to tho house,
"Our love was too deep to bo thwarted,
and while I was . at school Olot
found frequent opportunities of visiting
me. Wo would have married thon,
only wo wcro too poor.
"Ono night my lover enmo to me and
said: 'Ellen, If I were lost nt sea,
would you bo faithful to mo?'
"I snw that he una downcast and
heavy hearted and had something on
"I said: 'Why, Olof, what do you
" 'I mean,' ho said, nnd tears filled
his eyes, 'that I am going to America.'
'"Oh, Olof,' I cried, and wept bitter
"Then ho told me ot his plans and
how, when he becamo rich, he would
send for me. We both promised to bo
so truo to each other, and wo becumo
almost happy In thinking of tho good
times In utore for us In far away America.
"I ltoro up bravely, for I know how
hard It would bo for poor Olof away oft
so far from friends and working so hard
"His letters ciw a regularly no
working men's letters usually come.
After awhile his writing seemed uncertain,
ai though his hand was weak,
and 1 could hardly read his letters.
Then I knew that he was sick but
would not tell inc.
"I felt that I must go to my lover.
Tho ocean Is wide, but a trustful heart
can span It and lly like a freed sparrow
to its mate. I sold some of .my clothes
and borrowed some money from my
brother. Then, when I was all ready.
I told my parents. They wcro angry
and sorely perplexed, but I was bound
to go and they could not keep me.
"On tho morning of my departure my
brother brought me a letter written in
a strango hand. It told inc that Olnf
was dead and In the letter was a lock
of hair I had given him when he left
A friend of Olof's had written tho let
ter. It said that ray lover's dying re
quest had been to send the hair to mo
and toll me that he loved me to tho
"Grief Is hard to bear, butlboromtns
us bravely as I could, and In a month I
started to America to go to my lover'a
grave, and then go on to live w Ith a

started to the cemetery to find hll
grave. Near a house I stopped to roit,
I saw a man approaching aud heard
him whistling an old Swedish air I
knew so well My blood tingled and
my heart leaped for joy. It was a dear
old tune that Olof was fond of bofore
he was laid in tho churchyard. The
mau entered the house as I drow near.
I passed the window, It was Olof himself.
He was making lore to another
glrL His arm was around her and he
was looking Into her eyes as he used to
look at inc.
"Thus had the dead come to life
again and I had beon deceived. 1 ran
away and came here How, I do not
know. A terrible something pursued
mo. It seemed the phan torn of him I
had loved so truly. I could not forget,
and, In desperation, I tried to drown
myself to get awny from my thoughts.
As I have Iain here, I have forgotten.
I am as ono who has recovered from a
long illness, weale but painless. That
Is why I am glad that I tried to drown
myself, for. the cold water of thorlve
has washed away the memory of him
I loved, nnd henceforth I do not think
