ias man departed, leaving Orde
standing in the gloomy hall. That
yonng man. however, parted the cur
tains leading into a parlor and sat
down in a spindle legged chair.
For quite three quarters of an hour
he waited without bearing any other
indications of life than muffled sounds.
Occasionally he shifted his position,
but cautiously, as though he feared to
awaken some one. Three oil portraits
stared at him with all the reserved
aloofness of their painted eyes. He
began to doubt whether the man had

Then, breaking the stillness with al
most startling abruptness, be beard a
clear, high voice saying something at
the top of the stairs outside. A rhyth
mical swish of skirts, punctuated by
the light pat-pat of a girl tripping
downstairs, brought him to his feet.
A moment later the curtains parted,
and she entered, holding out her band.
He stood holding her band, sudden
ly unable to say a word, looking at her
hungrily. A flood of emotion, of which
he had had no prevision, swelled up
within him to fill his throat.
"It was good of you to come so
promptly," said she. "I'm so anxious

"Oh. la. Ia!" she cried, cutting him
Orde was for taking his leave, but
this she would not have.
"You must meet my family." she
negatived, "for if you're here for so
short a time we want to see someafng

Orde thereupon followed her down
a narrow, dark hell to a door that
were conducted as houses of j vent cemetery,
to enter the convent of the Sisters cf

war she accompanied the mother su

they supervised the work of the sisters
in the prisons there for a short time.
Two sisters, Sister Mary Gertrude and
Mother Mary Evangelist, also Sisters
of Mercy, have preceded her in death
by several years. Two nieces, Mrs.
