Arthur looked at his brother; then he faced his sister. "Henry is not guilty." he said, calmly., : ' ; ' He turned with a quick gesture and thrust the envelope into the flame of one of the jcandles; but Helen sprang forward, and eaught away the blazing packet land smothered the flame be tween her hands. . , 'We iwill keep the proof." she said In a tooe;of triumph; and I knew then how completely she had believed in her father. "I don't know -what is In that pack et," said Gillespie, slowly, speaking for the first ' time. "It has never been opened. Jly lawyer told me that fa ther had sworn to a statement about the trouble with - Holbrook Brothers and placed It with the notes. My fa ther was, a peculiar man In some ways," continued Gillespie, embar rassed by, the attention that was' now ! riveted npon him.-. "His lawyer told me that I was to open that package -before before marrying into" and he grew red. and stammered-helplessly, wltH-i his ' eyes, on the floor "before marTyins into the Holbrook family.

CHAPTER XXV. - , ; - ; . Daybreak. At midnight Gillespie and I discussed the day's affairs on the terrace at Glenarm. There , were long pauses in our talk- Such things as, we had seen and . heard that night, in the canoe- maker's shop on the little creek, were beyond our poor range of words. And in the silences my own reflections were not wholly happy. If Miss Pat and Rosalind had not followed me to the canoe-maker's I might have spared Helen; but looking back, I would not change it now if I could. Helen had returned to St Agatha's with her aunt, who would have it so; -and we had parted at : the ' school door. Miss Pat and Helen, Gillespie and I, with re straint heavy upon us all. Miss Pat had, it seemed, summoned her lawyer, from New York several days before, to discuss the final settlement of her fa ther's estate; and he was expected the next morning.;, I: had asked tbemall to Glenarm for breakfast; and Arthur Holbrook and Rosalind, and Henry, who had broken down at the end, had agreed to come. As we talked on. Gillespie and U'"r there under the stars, he disclosed, all unconsciously, new and surprising traits, and I felt, my heart, warming to .him. - rw ! Tr : - . . - "He's a good . deal of a man, that Arthur. Holbrook," he remarked after a long pause. '."He's beyond me.

"No," Gillespie added;- "only, get down -on oar knees and" bow our beads in aha -dust before It." -- ;He rose and paeef the." long terrace.

Helen borrowed some money of you a little while ago- to - meet one of. her father's demands.: 'I expect -a draft for that- money by the morning mail, and I want you to accept It with my thanks, and here. ; And the Incident shall -pass as though It had never been.". . ' 7 About one o'clock- the wind fresh ened and the trees flung out' their arms like; runners rushing before it; and from 'the west marched a storm with banners of lightning. -It ..was a splendid spectacle, and we went in doors only when ; the rain began to wash across the terrace. - We - still watched, it from our windows- after we went" upstairs, the lightning now blazing out blindingly, like sheets of flame from a7 furnace door, and again cracking about the house like a fiery whip. ; . "We ought to have brought Henry here to-night," remarked Gillespie. "He's alone over there on Jthe island with that dago and they're likely cele brating by getting drunk."j; '-- ...-"The lightning's getting,; on your nerves; go to bed," I calle back. The storm left peace behind and I was abroad early, eager ,fo have the first shock of the morning's meetings over. Gillespie greeted me cheerily and I told him to follow when be wad ready. I went out and paced the.walk between the house and St. Agatha's and as I peered through the iron, gate her walking slowly with flier bands clasped behind her. She spoke first, as though to avoid any expression" of sympathy, putting out her hand. r Filmy lace at the wrists gave to her hands a quaint toach akin to that Im parted by the cap on her white head.
