I "I'm glad o that. I always did
like him—he was such a nervy, j
good-lookin' cuss. An" I always
had a notion they got him foul on
that convention business some
how." Bob heard Eleanor draw a
quick, gasping breath. Impulsive
ly he put out his hand and let it'
rest on hers for a moment. Hag-!
gin discreetly looked the other
"He had n, kid with him—his I
sister's—a little girl that—ahem! <
j—that oughtn't to a" been born. I
It seems as he'd been hittln' it up
gay, when he run into his sister.
She was sick an' broke, an' he I
took care o' her till she died.
Then he took care o' the kid a
while. An* then, I guess, he
couldn't stand it no longer, so he
brought her over to Miss Flinn."
"Thank God!" breathed Elea
"Yes, ma'am," Haggin agreed
politely. "I didn't know this till
afterwards. It made me feel sort
o' cheap. I don't know as I could
a' come back, If I'd been In the
same place an' constitooted the
same. He ain't all piker, Gover
nor. You think so?"
"I know he isn't, man."
"Guess he intended to stay, if
he could square things with you.
But on the train he heard some
feller say somethln' that made
him think he'd be in your way if
he stayed. Thought his comln"
back'd remind people of that
Hemenway business. But when
Miss Flinn told him it was me—
not you—was Angel of Charity to
them delegates, that changed his
mind some. That's why they sent
"He never says a word while
I'm rough-housln' him. When I
got through, he says, sharp, 'Hag
gin,' Miss Flinn tells me you
bribed those delegates.' 'That's
straight,' says I. 'What are you
goin' to do about it?' Ho never
batted an eye—ho ain't a four
flusher, Governor. 'There's Just
one thing to do,' he says. An' we
Haggin straightened up tri
"There won't be so much talk
about that convention business, I
, guess. I took him to a reporter
|an' he give anuther interview,
,teliin' all about that convention
an' about how you took the blame
that b'longe-i to me. It's a bully
story. The reporter got it straight
and knew how to write it up. It's
In all the morniu' papers. Here it
He pulled a newspaper from his
pocket and flourished it before
Bob's amazed eyes. "I told you
I'd get that published ati-nlght
before I was through," he
"And then?" Eleanor suggest-
cd. Haggin had almost forgotten
her in his Interest in liis tale. I
Now he noticed tears in her eyes;
he wondered why.
"When we got back to the
house, Miss Flinn asked him. 'Will
you stay now, Paul?' He didn't
say nuthin' fer a while. Then he
straightened up an' said, 'If Bob
will let me.' These was his very
words. You'll let him, won't you,
Governor? Haggln was very earn
est. "He's been up against a
tough game, an' I always did like
him an' —if you'd seen him, you'd
know. He'll go to hell straight,
if you don't keep hold of him. I
ain't a preacher, but—"
Bob held out his hand. Hag
gin took it.
Haggin turned to Eleanor.
"Didn't I say he's on the square?
He's my kind o' man!"
Then Haggtn noted a singular
phenomenon. Neither Eleanor i
nor Bob were paying the least at
tention to his words. They were|
both standing, each lost In the,
other's eyes. He shifted uncom-j
fortably in his chair, then arose,
"Well, I guess I'll be goin'. If ■
you're goin' down to see him, Gov-|
ernor, I'll meet you at the!
"At the eleven-forty—" Bob
mumbled mechanically. "O, yea,
of course, the eleven-forty. I'll
be there, Tom."
"Well—why, bless me! I nearly
fergot. Before I left—l know
you'd want to hear about it all an'
I told 'em I was comln' up here.
An' Miss Flinn said to him, 'Paul^
do you know Mrs. Gilbert is with
the Dunmeades now?' I was sorry
fer him. It had been a tough
night fer him an' he was tired an'
white as a ghost. He soemed to
think a bit, then he said to me,
'Tell Bob to tell Mrs. Gilbert that
there is no reason in the world—
none at all—why I should stand
between her and happiness. She
will understand.' He made me
say it over again. Those was his
very words. 'There is no reason
In the world why I should stand
between her and happiness.' "
Once more Haggin noted that
strange forgetfulness of his pres
ence. And If he smiled to him
self, at least, being something of
a gentleman, he did not let the
After a long moment Bob came
t« his senses to remark:
"Tom, the governor has some
very particular, as I have heard.
If you will go into the house, the
butler will attend to your case."
Bob turned to her. Through
the leaves of the vines a shaft of
spring sunshine fell upon her face
aud hair. But It was not the
Buußhiue from above that trans
figured her to his eyes. Ho reach
ed out and touched her hand
"I can't believe. * * * It
has come so soon. • • • Ah!
we had bo little faith. • ♦ •"
"Eleanor! Eleanor!" Ills voice
was low and husky.
' His hand fell from hers and bis
head went up bravely.
"I have been newsboy, mill
hand, heeler, —please God,
that;last, at least, is- ended! I
don't know what crime stained my
birth. I don't even know that I
have a right to the name I bear.
But —I love you."
' "And that is all I want," she
■ "There is no reason why we
should wait, .is there—Eleanor?"
'■"Thero is none. You are all I
have In the world*— Bob, dear."
As she spoke his name, he
t "You never took a vacation, did

"O, that doesn't count, you
know. Will you take one this
summer—with me? Just one lit
tle week —If the campaign -will
allow it?" /
"We'll make the campaign al
low it." His laugh rang boyishly.
"There's a place I know, in the
woods. It is on a river, such a
beautiful river, so cool and clear
and deep. The woods are always
deliclously fragrant. You sit in
your canoe and float and dream
all day long. . And at night you
light your camp-fire on the wa
ter's edge and you sit by it and
watch the rippling path of gold
it lays along the —and
count the stars and wonder what
they all mean, up there—-and for

world —except just we two— -
