PICKENS S. C.
Ile was telling her the story of a
,nan who had mortally offended the ai
woian he loved, and who loved him, n
and she was listening with a strange
intentness, her eyes fixed dreamily t
upon nothingness. ~a
" And when his passion had (died n
down,"-so he went on---" and he saw si
what a fool he had been, and how sl
deeply he had wronged her, he went h
back to her and pleaded for forgiveness a
with all the strength of love, and all to
the agony of remorse. But she," he it
continued, bitterly, " do you think she p
could take him back and forgive him v
freely, as he had thought she would? c
No. She spoke loftily of her woman- p
hood and her outraged feelings and all ii
the other phantoms of the brain which o
you women affect to prize so highly, I
yet sacrifice so lightly. And then she e
told him coldly that all was over be- s
tween them forever, forbade him ever t
to see her agaiii -put him out of her t
life, and left him to light it all by him- a
self, when and where he would. And
yet she had said she loved him. A fine e
love indeed, which will condemn its
object to lifelong misery for a mere r
nothing. Only a woman could love s
that way I"
His listener moved impatiently and l
opening her fan began to wield it vig
" It is warm here," he said. tt Shall
" No," she answered, 11 go on with
your story. It--it interests me."
" You pity the mian?" lie asked al
1 pity the woman," she responded.
"t But go on."
"The woman!" he cried. t' She
put,,ff what she called her love as she
would a discarded garment, and her
life was none the sadder for it. Bu '
he-the man! Twenty yeara h. i
been with him, night and day, ;idl not
for a moment of that lifetji1e has he
been able to blot her j.i,dnge from his
heart, and it wil iwell there to his
dying day. ,Wien he first left her
house he !irionght his love was dead,
so crue'"iy had she wounded it. But it
w ilot. Lashed by it as by a whip,
-iie shut out from his life everything
that could remmnd him of her- ---yea,
changed his very name in a blind
yearning to forget. But go where he
would, do what he could, his love
stayed with him, killing his happiness,
blighting his life. Had he not loved
her so, he would have cursed her for
so wantonly turning all the sweetness
of his life to gall."
There was a note of fierceness in his
voice as he spoke the last words; thou
his lips formed themselves into the
bitter, cynical smile, which had
come to be habitual with him and he
" You see, he was a man, and she
why, she was a woman, and that
epitomizes the whole story."
For a moment there was a pause;
then his companion turned to him im
" Is that all?" she asked.
" All?" he answered. " Is it not
enough? A few minutes in the telling,
a lifetime in the living."
"And now," she said, " now that
you have pleaded the man's cause so
well, and have branded the woman as
heartless, and cruel, and fickle, and
unloving-m short, as a woman, will
you let me say a word in her defense?
Will you let me draw you a picture of
what her life may have been, her life,
of which you speak, with such assur
ance, but of which von can know
He nodded his head a token of as
sent. She continued almost passion
ately, her eyes flashing with a danger
"Oh," she said, " how lightly you
meon talk of woman's love. With
what arrogance you extol the depth of
your own passion, holding hers as
naught in comparison. Listen. Per
haps that woman trusted the man she
loved with a trust, beyond all saying.
Perhaps he was to her the embodiment
of everything noble, and beautiful, and
great In man, and so, because she
thought him t,hat, she gave him freely,
totally, all that she had to give-her
sell. Oh, you can not imagine, you,
a mere man, the struggle that takes
place in a woman's heart before she
takes the step by wh:ch she voluntarily
cuts herself adiift from-all that she has
been wont to cling to before as her
dearest rights, asking no compensation
for her sacrifice but, the love and faith
of him for whonm she has made it.
With man, love Is but an added bless
ing. Take it away, and you leave him

gay, but in all other respects the

in the abstract, woman must have a
living, tangible object. Think, then,
before you judge so harshly, how this
woman may have looked upon the man
of your story; think of the struggle
that may have gone on in her heart
~before she gave herself to him, of ther
doubts of him, and fears of him against I
which her love battled, first strongly,r
then ever weaker and weaker, till itt
finally yielded. T1hink of the trust
which she gave him with herself, and
then of the agony which must have
been hers when she found that that
trust had been misplaced, when ehe r
saw the mantle of greatness and good- I
ness with which her love had clothed C
him torn ruthlessly away, revealing to
her his real nature in all its smallness C
of distrust, in all Its hypocrisy and
deceit. ThinL of all this, and then g

heart still year'hing for the idol it has

ly, and there was profound grief in her
vice, " and-then, self-condemned to a d

D object on which to bestow it, she ord
icked it up in her heart, and has kept frei
there through all these sad years, for

etless and therefore wasted." ho
For a moment both were still-she DIi
etued to have forgotten that she had the
listener. Recollection came to her did
iddenly, and she gave a little embar- tio
(ssed laugh. She feared she had be- sig
'ayed herself. w
" have I not pleaded well?" she ad
3ked " Do you still condemn the wo- of
lol unquahiledly?" sea
lie was slow to answer. Their hos- bri
ss had introduced them hurriedly, cat
ud he had not caught his compamion's we
time, nor had he felt the necessity eit
ibsequently to ask for it. The
range fascination that the woman Au
ad had for him from the first mystilied a]
ud delighted him, and he had yielded am
it without attempting to probe for soi
,a meaning. But during her last im- D.
assioned speech something in her an
oice had with startling suddenness tht
aused a wave of profound feeling to th;
ass over his heart. He gazed at her in
itently for a moment, and the mystery idt
f her attraction for him was cleared. si
te wondered that he had not recogniz- a c
d her before, time had changed her set
o little. With a mighty bound the love iNs
hat had lain dormant in his heart for 8)
wenty years sprang into active life sid

iimself at her feet and once more to se,
rave her forgiveness, as lie had done ne
aany years ago, almost gained the
nastery over hiin. But lie was well- mit
chooled in self-restraint, and his voice O
was almost natural when he answered in
ier question. w
" You have indeed made a noble de- Di
enso," he said. " But if that woman to
ihould have been as noble as you have op
nade her out to be, would mercy and to:
orgiveness have found no place in her

ly, and Christian-like?"
lie saw a dreamy look creep into her fr
eyes as he spoke, and her voice had a ar
far-away sound to it when she answer- a
ed him. But her words opened a new w
life for him. ct
