" 'My little sister!' I henrd him say once
when he thought he was alone, 'if you
knew Paul was dyinsr, I think you would
come to him.'
"His words rang in my heart with a ter
rible pain and fear. If I had only known
Kathleen's address I would have written to
her, but I had no means of learning it.
Paul-said nothing to me about his wish to
Bee her, but when the doctor advised
change of air, he asked me to take him to

" '1 think Kathleen may be there,' lie
"And he was right. Two days after our
arrival a carriage parsed me in the street.
Glancing up, I saw Kathleen leaning, pale
and sad-looking, among the cushions. As
Bbe caught sightf me she started, then,
stopping ber carriage, she made me a sign
to it. The street was crowded, so I obeyed
" 'How is Paul?' she asked, anxiously, as
I seated myself. '
"When 1 told her how rapidly he Ltd
failed, she said, eagerly, 'Will you take me
to him? I have longed to see him again.'

" 'YeB; no one cares where I go;' and
and the tears rushed to her eyes.
"'You are ill, 1 fear.'l said gently. 'You
are much paler than you were at sa. I
am a physician, you know, so you must let
me prescribe for you.'
''She smiled, gratefully.
' 'I have been ill, but I am better now.
I think I am getting selfish and lazy, and
do not exert myself enough.
"After a time 1 forced myself to inquire
for her husband and father. She colored
quickly, saying in a low, constrained voice,
Thank you; they arc quite well. They
are both here.'
"Then we did not speak'until we reached
the quiet lodgings I had procured for Paul,
I had meant to go first and prepare him,
thinking the surprise might be too great,
but as we entered the hall his voice greeted
"'I hear you; come, Kathleen.'
"It was only when I saw them together
that I knew how much he had mised her.
He scorned quite content to lie and hold
her hand, gazing at her with such a tran
quil, rtsttul look upon his face as it had
not worn for weeks. He only let her go
on the promise of Eceing her every day;
and that night when the good German wo
man we lodged with came in to ask him
how he was, he told her, with the bright
emile so rure on the wan face, that he was
'"My little sister has come to be with
me,' he said; 'you must see her to-mor
row.' Then he added, more to himself
than to us, 'I am trotting ready.'
"The next day Kathleen's father brought
her. lie came in ana stayed a few min
utes! was kind and friendly t0 Paul and
courteous to me; his manner seemed soft
ened, but whether that was only in the
presence of my dear boy, I could not tell.
Kathleen's eyes followed him wistfully as
he went out, and I heard her sigh. I
knew now certainly that he and her hut
baud were both professional gamblers.
"During one of her visits she happened
to mention having spent a few weeks in
"'It was such a quiet, happy time," she
said, dreamily. 'I ulwayg associate rest
-with that little hamlet uraong the hills.
When I die 1 bhould sleep there sonic
time. Do you kuow I often see that green
ulopein my dreams; and once I saw a
white cross standing there, and when I
went to it my name was on it."
"That uitfLt Paul had a long fit of pain;
he fainted several times; and the next day
when Kathleen came, he said, quietly:
"'Won't you stay with my now, Kath
leen, till the latt? It won't be long.' And
Kathleen, glancing at my face, prorujsed
"In the afternoon a fine, drizzling rain
commenced to fall, and when the twilight
began to wrap street and house in its soft,
Kray folds, I seated myself iu one of the win
dows, listening to the drip.dripof the rain,
and thinking whnt,a dreary void ray life
would be before Uio next day f sun would
rie. Paul and Kathleen were talking in
low tones, and now and then I could hear
"Ii your mother like you, Kathleen?
Then I shall know her. Now, tell me
watt I must tny"
Tell her Taul, that I am living out her
life; that though the road bo long and the
path set thick with thorns, my feet, like
hers, will ono day reach the goal." Then
Iter voice broke, and she said, sobbingly,
"Oh, Paul, my brother, can you uot take
mo with you?"
' "His answer was too low to reach my
car, but presently her sobs censed, and
then he called faintly for me.- I was
beside him immediately.
" 'Raise mo up, Phil. ' No, don't ring
for lights. I wish you could tako mo
home, Philip, and lay mo in the church
yard Kathleen talks about. Hush, Kath
leen dear; nnd Philip, you must hope to
bo patient. The beginning of the end
seems very near to me.' Then his voice
sank:. Presently he stirred; Kathleen
Philip and when I laid him down the
smile that had settled on his pale young
face was the smile with which ho waked
"Perhaps it was well for me that I had
to attend to Kathleen, whose grief really
alarmed me. Leaving the dead body of
my Paul in care of the kindly landlord, I
took her to her carriage. Then, afraid to
leave her, I accompanied her home. She
was quite silent, only every little while she
would sigh shudderingly. As wo neared
their hotel, she turned to mo with an
agonized gleam in her dark eyes.
"'Now, Paul is gone, I have no one no
one,' she cried.
"Then I said to her quietly, with the
shadow of our great sorrow lying between
"Promise mo Kathleen, that if your bur
den shall become too great for yoti to bvar,
you will let me help you.'
" 'She stilled her sobs and said solemnly:
" 'Philip, I promise.'
"Well, Archie, my story is almost done.
The next year was terrible to nic. I missed
Paul daily and hourly, and life that had once
seemed so full and bright, grew only a
weary load, which I yet must bear. Then
I read Mr. Lambert's death in a French
journal. Poor Kathleen was released. Then
I knew that the gTcat hunger ot my heart
might yet be satisfied. A love, whose
mighty presence I had not guessed, sprang
up in my heart. I wrote to her, sending
the letter to Paris. I knew she loved me
so my haste was no insult.
" ! am going to that village among the
hills to wait,' 1 wrote; 'when you are lree,
come to me.'
"1 nave iookou lor her every uay since
then, Paul, in the churchyard yonder, and
I in the old house, waiting for Kathleen's
coming. Her room is always ready. Would
you like to see it?"
I assented eagerly. Phil took up the
lamp, and unlocking a door I had not ob
served till then, led we into a huge, hand
some room, bright with solt, warm tints,
and made cheerful by the lire which
crackled upon the hearth. The walls were
hung with pictures, the tables covered with
books, and in one corner stood a cabinet
filled with bronzes, exquisite statues, and
here and there a shine of gold and gems.
On the top lay alible, a prayer-book, and
a handsome bound copy of "Thomas a
Kcmpis." Opening the latter I read, "To
my wife, Dec. 17, 18."
"It will take her sometime to look over
her birthday presents," Phil said, in answer
to my look of inquiry. "Yes, this is the
last, December 17; it will soon be here."
He 6tood looking in the fire, and musingly
stroked his long gray beard. "She will be
tlnrty-uiijr, Archie, and 1 am an old man.
My faith sometimes wavers, but if I lost it

and he sank into a chair with a weary sigh.
Seeing that he for the first time was un
conscious of my presence, I continue?.! my
survey of the room. In on corner were
grouped several rare fenrs and a tea-rose,
covered with buds. In one of the windows
hung a bird cage, its pretty occupant curled
up into a soft, yellow ball. How pathetic
to me were the yellow curtains, telling, as
they did, ot the lopg, patient waiting the
richness ol hope deferred.
Ah ! he came at last ! She greeted me
with a smile, and then, as Phil knelt beside
her, she said :
"'Philip's friend? Ah, Philip did not
know what a poor old wonxin was coming
home to him at last."
"Kathleen, you say nothing of the old,
old man you found."
The look she turned upon him was the
most beautiful I ever saw on any face.
"If 1 say nothing, Phil, it is because my
heart is too full for words."
Healing Abby in the hall, I went out
and left the two together. When I came
back Phil handed me the prayer-book open
at the marriage service.
"Do you mind using the form, Archie?
Kathleen likes it."
He spoke so uiet'y, I looked dumbly at
him, with the book open in my hand, with,
"Yes, Archie, that is what we waut; but
I want all men to know it now. ,
So. in the presence of Abl y and Phil
old Housekeeper, 1 married them. How
white the still face on the pillow had be
come; but when the rite was ended she
turned to Philip with a radiant smile and
"Death will not part us, Philip."
I saw Kathleen every day after that. The
storm and tempest of her fragile boat was
anchored in Phihp s love. She otten spoke
to mo of his year of patient waiting.
"The only time 1 doubted him," she
said, "was when I came up the walk from
the gate the night I arrived. I stood a mo
ment to gather strength and courage, ami I
saw him come to the window there. He
drew the curtain and looked out, and I saw
the warmth and brightn ess within, and
feared to see some ono in my place at his
side; then I cried out, 'Philip,'and he came
to me my faithful lover, and he brought me
in, and then 1 knew God hud heard our
Those days of quiet happiness sped swiftly
by, and when in the gloom and cold before
the dawn of Christmas morning, Phil sent
for me, I found Kathleen lying pale and
faint upon her pillows, and Phil bending over
her with the seal of great and holy calm upon
his face. I took my place before her in si
lence. She smiled uently.
"I am going to spend my Chr'mtmas Di y
with Paul ana mother. I wish Phil could
coine too, but perhaps it won't be long;',
she struggled a little for. breath, and Phil
raised her in his arms. "Waitinir auain.

with a smile;; then her faco changed; no
