I CHAPTER V.
Husband and wife looked at each other
'for a moment, and then the wife's eyes
I drooped guiltily. It is is characteristic of
.! people at large to be wiser about other peo
1 pie's affairs than they are about their own
being freed, in the one case, of egotism's
1 glasses and almost anybody can ve that,
' although there was sufficient occasion for a
J domestic scene, there was no reason to re
! gard the position of things as being essen
(tiaUy tragic. You must endure a good
'deal before you tear yourself from your
dearer half in your sober senses. But the
one thing that stared each of these people
; in the face was a lifelong and inevitable
"I have deceived him," said the wife,
with such a cold anguish of repentance as
could only come of detection. " He will
cever believe me nor love me again."
"Is this thing true? " asked Tregarthen,
coldly. Her aspect was enough to convict
ber, and be turned away. Icy M he was to
look at be was afraid of himself, and felt
that he was not to be trusted with many
words. He would go away, therefore, and
would think bow best to bear himself in

.V u may go," said bis master, quietly,
The man" retired, and Tregarthen sat
down by the center-table, drew the lamp
closer, and opened the envelope. For a
time the sleudor letters danced before his
eyes, and he could uot make out a word,
but in a while he mastered himself and be
gan to read. What he read was incoher
ent and agonized. It was written in hasto,
with bloU and erasures, and there were
blisters upon the paper where the writer's
tears had fallen, bhe bad known her own
unworthlness iu keeping her secret all
along, she wrote, but she had never dured
to tell hlin wbut her past life had been.
And now he had discovered hor duplicity
and wickedness, and she could uot bear to
face him. fche had gono away, and she
begged him to forget her. But she loved
him, and she prayed Heaven to bless him.
' There was much more to this effect, and,
while be read, the bhadow of a burribto
doubt fell closer and darker round his
heart. What was there in the more discov
ery, taken by itself, to excite such anguish
as the letter displayed? What lay behind
the discovery? Was it likely that a wife
would run away from her husband and her
Lome on a provocation so trivial as the dis
covery of itself afforded? Then all his
heart rose up to defend her, and he was torn
between doubt and trust aud love and fear,
and the little mild passion that had dwelt
within him t dilated to giant size on a sud
den, and took his soul for a battle-ground,
and shook it with their conflict.
There was no sleep for him that night,
and all next day he wandered vaguely,
trying to make up his mind to some course
of action. His wife hod given him no ad
dress, but it did not seem to him at first
that it would be difficult to discover her in
London. Hut was her flight in itself a con
fession of worse than he knew, or could be
bear to hear that confession if it had to be
made, or to hear her denial of it and to have
to doubt ber still?
If people always did the plain, common
sense thing, always spoke the plain truth,
and always looked circumstances in the
face, t'-.e world would be improved out of
knowledge. Mrs. Tregarthen had taken
perhaps the most foolish of possible steps,
had disgvised the truth, and now ran away
from the circumstances she had herself cre
ated; and yet yci shall not despise her if
1 can help it. It was an innocent courage
which had led her more for her sister s
sake than her own to the stage. It was a
pardonable fear which had kept her silent
as to that episode in her life. It is one of
the ways of women to look their best in
the eyes of the people they love, and this
lead th-m to reservations and pretenses.
A weakness characteristic of a whole half
of humanity must not be judged too se
verely. V.'hen she ran away, site did so be
cause a tender conscience, hitherto void of
great offense, exaggerated her little folly
into a crime. She made up her innocent
mind that she was one of the wickedest wo
men in the world. She had married her
husband under false pretenses!
When Tregarthen turned his Lack upon
her she read a final renunciation in the act,
and was persuaded that she had lost him
furever. he had no blame for him then
or afterward, and she recognized the justice
of the imagined sentence, even at the mo
tuent when it weight first crushed her.
The perfect trust which love should have in
love is a flower of slow growth indeed.
Often enough life is over before it has
reached to iu full bloom, though there is
this compensation for its laggard coming,
that when once it blossoms it can know no
Mrs. Tregarthen went to London, and
naturally enough sought the one place there
which she Lad known before a respectable,
if somewhat dingy, boarding-house off the
Strand. The suut landlady had not for-jrottt-n
her, and received her kindly. There
was a faint favor cf home in the stuffy
bedroom, and at least it was better to be
there than to find a nest altogether strange.
Eut the foolish fugitive Lad run away with
out any prevision, and had made no ar
rangement for thise bodiJy needs which
continue their claim in spite of sins or re
rwntAace. She had twenty pounds ia
money, and her maid, being bidden to pack
far London, had naturally foreseen festiv-
ity, and had put up all the hapless lady s
jewelry. There was no fear of immediate
starvation, therefore, but none ttie less that
terror loomed up from the f ut jre. She was
sure that she was forever pai-ted from her
Lusband, and when the Crvt agony of that
certainty La1 wttled down into a dull pain,

" How is that, Mary?" inquired the mis

sunk low enough already, in all conscience.
but It fell lower yet when the maid spoke
of leaving. Tregarthen had himself en
gaged thj woman to serve his wife, and
the exile was ready to eling to anything
that bound ber, however slightly, to her
Lome and him.
" Well, rna'am," returned the maid "since
you a-k rue, I don't understand thing, and
I d rattier eo."
There would be one mouth the less to fill,
but that was little. The maid received her
wan and went away, though she kept an
eye on Mrs. Tregarthen, having fancies of
her own conefcrnins? the reanoris for this cu

In these circumstances the maid s interest
in her lute mistress dilined, and she found
another place and went away, content to
leave a mystery unlived.

rattled into one of the jugs. "There's a

"Mrs. Tregarthen," said the girl. "That's

" Mrs. Tregarthen," said Mr. Lorriiner.
" Thank you. I've got the name all right,
have I? Tre gar then?"
" That's right sir," respondod the servant,
polishing her noso with tho bottom of a
beer-jug. "Tregarthen. Thank you, sir."
" She's at home now, I think?" said Lor
riuier. The maid nodded, and he marched at once
to tho door of the house and knocked. Mrs.
Tregarthen, sitting in her own room, heard
the knock, and felt her heart so leap at it
that she was f uin to rise and open her cham
ber door to listen. But that was a common
experience. Not a knock had come to the
door of Mrs. Barnley's establishment, since
the unhappy lady had entered it, without
shaking her heart and fluttering her nerves
in th is way. She heard the door 11 ung open,
and then came the murmur of a male voice,
indistinct and low. The maid's voice
cackled skrill and clear in answer.
"Mrs. Tregarthen, sir? Yes, sir. "Walk
in, sir. What name shall I say, sir?"
It had been in Mrs. Tregarthen's mind
from the first, or almost from the first, that
Arthur might love her so well that, in spite
of her wickedness, he would seek her out
and forgive her, and her knees were so
weakened that she could scarce let go the
door and creep back to her chair to be in
readiness for the servant's coming. Lodging-house
maids are not more observant or
sympathetic than their neighbors, as a rule,
but even by the light of the one pale candle
on the tablo Mrs. Tregarthen's face had so
much trouble and terror in it that the girl,
when she entered with Lorrimer's card,
caught fright, and begged to know what
was the matter.
" Nothing," said the poor creature, w ith
her eyes wide open, and her face as white
as the lace about her throat " Is that for
Phe stretched out her hnnd for the card,
and when she had read the name upon it
she dropped it with a little moan of escape
and disappointment, and one or two half
hysterical tears ran down her cheeks. Tb
sen-ant bustled about the room and got a
glass of water, after much unnecessary
clatter. Lorrimer, waiting in the room be
low, had undefined notions of a cavalry
skirmish floating though his mind. A mo
ment later, the servant, a petticoated ava
lanche, precipitated herself, down stairs.
" The lady can't see you, sir. fche's tool
" Indeed! " said Lorrimer, politely regret
ful. " Nothing serious, I trust?"
" I ain't so sure o' that," returned thi
maid. "She's like a ghost, and she canl
scarcely sit in her chair, sir."
Lorrimer opened his eyes with unfeigned
fear. He saw thousand of pounds in Mrs.
Tregarthen, and, being a sanguine man, ai
theatrical managers nearly alwavs are, h
had already arranged terms with the lady.
and had her tntbusiasticaliy trumpeted.
and conducted her first performance with
prodigious clat. At the very niomenl
when the cavalry skirmish began overhea J
be had been returning thanks for a piece ol
plate publicly presented to him (in recogni
tion of his bavin; made a fortune out ol
her) by the celebrated actress herself. Tin
servant was really frightened, and looked

" Back as soon as possible," he murmured
"Gone for a doctor." And be shot front
the room to save his thousands and the ladj
who was to make them.
He had noticed, in the course of his pere
grinations to and fro before the house, thai
a doctor lived next door, and he rant: I
tttxtliu; peal at the medico's bell. The pro
fevional eentlennn ran rildly into the
boarding-house without b'.s hat, and was
ushered into fne prew-nce of a lady who re
ceived him with perfect self-possession, and
assured him that she had no need for his
K-rvices. He was not to be cot rid of how
ever, until he had felt her pulse, and asked
a question or two, arid presiTil.-d a tonic.
Before Lorrimer called next day the ser
vant had told Mrs. Tregarthen of tho inter
est hvliad displayed. The actress remem
bered the manager kindly, but she had no
mind to renew their old acquaintance. fSho
strut word down to him, in answer to his in
quiries, that she was very much better, and
was very mii' h obliged to him for his kind
inquiries. Some people would havraccepted
this as an intimation of iiolite dismissal,
but Lorrimer was not one of them.
" That's right," he said, cheerfully. "I'm
glad to hear it. Just say I should like to
see her will you? if it s quite convenient
to her. If It isn't, ask when I shall call
"Show Mr. Lorrlmcr Into the visitor's
room," she said, in answer to this message.
It might be as well, she thought to get Mr.
Lorrimer over at once. If it were lmrossible
to avoid recognition, it was still possible to
let those who recognized her know that sh
desired privacy, and it was not likely that
all who ha1 known her would care to make
pursuit of her. Khe touched her hair and
the lace about her throat and wrists with
delicate fingers as she stood lwfore her
mirror, with no result perceptible to man,
and having thus made herself fit to be seen,
she descended tho stuirs ond found Lor-
rim'T awaiting her in tho visitor's room
a carpeted box, with an odor of dry-rot
A stage manager who could feel any
sense of (michrri in approaching an actress
must have had tho practice of his profes
sion wasted upon him. With Lorrimer any
sign of dignified reserve which expressed
itself without the pronounced staudollishness
of a stage attitude and gesture, was lost,
He had played many parts in bis time, and
to him tho saying of tho melancholy Jaqucs
was literal all tho world was a stage. He
took out the confidential-family adviser
stop, and addressed Mrs. Tregarthen in tones
of genial sympathy.
" You left us, madam, in a somewhat
sudden and unconventional way, but it was
Impossible for that or anything else to mit
igate tho pleasure and ndvantngo of having
known you. You have our proioundcst sym
pathy In the calamity which has brought
you back to us, but that Is tempered by the
hope that you may ultimately discover that
the profession, of which you might have been
thu brightest ornament, has still an attrac
tion for you, and that its triumphs offer a
consolation not to bo despised."
This was spoken with the air natural to a
master of tho art of conversation. Lorrimer
was one of those people who take their the
ories so to heart that they muke facts of
them. His theory was that Mrs. Tregarthen
was a widow, and in reduced circumstances.
He was quite certain that she left the stage
to be married and was equally sure that sho
would now return to it
" Do you mean," she asked, "that I Bhall
go back to tho stage, Mr. Lorrimer?" He
spread his hands abroad and bowed, with a
sweeping gesture of asseut " No, I shall
never go back to the stage."
Tho wrinkles of his smile remained for a
second or two, but the light went out of his
eves at once, and the wrinkles faded slowly
" Not go back to the stago, madam?" he
cried. " Waste the suiierb talents Ood has
given you on the mere desert air of private
life? Cast away the splendid fortune which
only needs an extended hand to grasp it?
ImKssible, madam impossible!"
Mr. Lorrimer spoke with so evident an
amazement that he Impressed the listener
In spite of herself. She had gone uinm tho
stage simply and purely to make bread for
herself and to find an education for her sis
ter. Few of the triumphs or joys of stage
life had come home to her, anil even when
they all seemed to lie waiting for her, she
had len able to surrender their promise,
for the quiet routine of domesticity in Gor
tay. They could scarcely have seemed
very valuable to her.sinee she had left tbein
so easily. But Lorrimer put the case strong
lv, If grotesquely, aud there could be no
doubt of his sincerity.
She was but a simple-minded creature, in
spite of the talents of which Lorrimer spoke
so highly, and she had a way of speaking
straight out the thing that was in her mind.
' My husband" sho began, but there she
stopped with a sudden sense of heartache at
the vast emptiness of the world. There is
no pain the human heart can feel which is
heavier to bear than that.
"Your husband, madam?" said Lorrimer,
prompting her with a tone of respectful
" My husband," she began again, " had a
profound dislike for the stage, and I must
respect his opinion."
"That is natural and commendable,
madam," returned Lorrimer, with the family-adviser
air more strongly marked than
ever. " But when in the course of a week
or jw0the healing hand of time has soft
ened the sense of loss, you may find your
self less Inclined to elevate his scruples into
She shook her head with an expression so
mournful and so resolute that Lorrimer felt
it nece.-ary to clear his throat before ho
"Well, madam, well," he said, rather
hastily. " If J'ou AouM change your mind,
you will know where I am. Fortune lies
at your feet You have only to stoop to
pick up wealth and fame. And, as I say,
if you thould change , your mind, you will
find nobody so devoted to your interests ns
mvself. 1 have mado the fortune of a nin
compoop tiefore to-day, madam, and genius

such g ;.ius as you possess I could move tho
world. I ask nothing but my poor share
of the lory, and half profits. But I will
not fbrJier intrude upon you now. Good
dav, madam, good-day."
He was gone, but he left a seed bthlnd
him, and though it fell on ground unwilling
to receive it, it took root and grew.
To have done a thing, with ninety-nine
people in a hundred, is the best of all pos
sible reasons for continuing to do it, espe
cially if the thing is to be done passively.
We like or dislike our everyday acquaint
ances on this principle, and it guides us in
more matters than we often care to think
of. The runaway wife had never written
to her husband to appraise him of her
whereabouts, and silence, which at first was
hard, had grown into such a habit that by
this time nothing could have forced her to
break it. She suffered, and she told herself
that she deserved to suffer. She trained
the thorns of remorse with a hand of con
stant care, and cultivated unbappiness at
only a penitent and a woman could. And
all the time she waited in a sort of hopeless
hope for her husband to make some effort
to recover her. Had he found her, he could
have taken home not merely a wife, but a
lover so full of love and penitence that rht
would have been his life-long slave for no
more than the privilege of seeing him. But
he also waited with a heart that grew bit
jterer and heavier day by day, until at last
the true masculine impatience of the slow
suffering, which women bear until they
learn to cherish it, bade him throw the bur
den away. He seemed to cast his heart
away with It, but it hal to j;, ai l he w-:n!
back to his mad-brained books a-.;:iii.
That so fine a triviality as that which
separated these two hearts and lives should
breathe a day's coldness might surprise a
lover. But there is no measurement foi
human folly, and the fools, as often as not,
are lovable, pitiable, admirable. If only
the Dconle who are objectionable nil rounc
made fools of themselves, what a charming
world we should live in!
To be Cohliuitrd.
The Hpawn of Charity.
There Is no city which in proportion to the
means of it liberal citizens does more for the
dependent classes than Chicago. One of the
consequences is that the more done the more
there ia to do; the more harped the more there
will be to help. The recipients of all thla
charity grow by what they feed on. The
more dispensaries toe city estamutues me
more patients appear to get medicines and
attendance. The more hospitals the more
es of Incurable and chronic diseases dis
cover themselves for treatment. The more
orphan asylums the greater the flock of the
fatherlew. The more "homos" of one kind
and another for old men, old women, erring
this and erring that, the more of the homo
lens and erring are there to till them.
Those facts, which could tie culled from the
experience of every one who olHcIally or pri
vately has undertaken to lend a hand to alle
viate the suffering that go distresses tho , nu
manc, are of deep significance. They illus
trate the forces that are tending to an un
wholesome growth of our cities. The great
est burdens of charity which fall on Chicago
do not come from within Itself. It is not the
deposit of ita own enervated and disintegrat
ing elements that furnishes It with the social
slit. All the country around Chicago for
hundreds of miles dumps Its residunm here.
This is not peculiar to Chicago. It is so In all
large cities London, Paris, Berlin, Now
York, Boston, Ciidnnatl as it was of old in
the case of Itotne. But it is startling to find
this nhenomenon of old civilizations so soon
manifesting itself with the Bharp edge it hat
begun to exhibit in this new country.
Hpiritnallitm to Be In ventigated.
By the terms of the will of tho late Henry
Beybert, a rich and eccentric citizen of rhila-
delnhia, the later years of whose life were
alworbwl in the vain effort to get at the truth
of what is kuown as Spiritualism, a consider
able legacy (J50,000) hus been bequeathed to
tho university to found a professorship of In
tollectunl and moral philosophy, with the
proviso that the authorities shall undertake
to make a thorough Investigation of the phe
nomena of modern Spiritualism, and puunsn
the evidence and the conclusions to which it
leads. The university has accepted the be
quest, and has appointed a committee of flva
ineintiers of Its faculty to conduct me investi
gation. This committee comprises among ita
