Mary saw the ambulance sweep up
the tree-lined avenue to the door
where the orderlies waited. Looking
down from her roam lathe tall De
building, she watched the agure a

brance of having seen before the face
of the quiet man who was being ten

more and more her tall surgeon lover
who was called upon for the crltical
operatlons in the head cases. "It I
only could love him as he loves me,"
she thought, wondering for the hun
dredth time why she could not.
As she stepped into the room where
the still form lay, a nurse looked up.
"Quick Mary, Mar, t's a serious concu
sdon." She started to aid the other
nurse when she glanced at the white
face. The hard floor seemed to sink
beneath her and something within her
icried out with anguish. She was look
ing into the face of her old lover, Al
lan Lane; and In that look's sace tuse
past came before her-her hot accusa
tlons, his cold denials, refusal to ex
plain-then the parting. He had not
loved her as she loved him-with all
the passion of her twenty years.

sharp query aroused her.
She bent to her task. As she re
moved the vest, from the inside pocket
a leather case fell at her feet. She
picked it up, and as abe did so the

r In the little anteroom to the opera

the old, old struggle began-the battle

able to work almust automatically.

with marvelous skill and speed; and
suddenly it dawned upon her that he
was making his great sacrifice also as
he labored with all the skill he pos

knives for her. The coldness that
had been in his eyes was the coldness
of men who summon their will to a

The bandages at last were woven
about the crushed head and the quiet
figure was wheeled out. Louis turned
to her, his eyes dark with weariness
and strain. "Mary, I am aboost sorry,
but I think he will live. He must have
ceaseless care. I will have you as
signed to his case."
The battleground was transferred to

girl kept the night vigils, the time

the strong heart seemed to be faintly

Louis from his sleep; and again and
again his ministrations rallied the
quieting heart. At the end of one
dark hour she turned to Dr. Louis.
"Arnold, am I selfish?' she asked.
"Not if you love him as I love yoa,"
was his brief answer.
She caught his hand and drew it to
her cheek impulsively. No other an
