By MARGARET DELAND, Author of "Dr. Lavendar's People," "Old Chester Tales," ?t (CojljTifffct, 1V06, 1906, by Harper fc Brothers. All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XXIV?Contineud. The front door was open, and the two bearers of heavy news entered unan nounced. Benjamin Wright was in the dining room, where the shutters were bowed to keep out the heat. 11? had taken off his hat, and was pottering about among his canaties. scolding Simmons and swearing at the weather. Dr. Lav endar and William, coming frorft the white glare of sunshine, could hardly dis tinguish him as he shuffled back and forth among the shadows, except when he crossed the strip of dazzling green light between the bowed shutters. Dr. Laven dar stopped on the threshold; William stood a little behind him. Mr. Wright was declaiming, sonorously: "?Did you ever ?ee- the devil. With hi* woo?len leu and shovel, A-acrati-hing up the gravel " He paused to stick a cuttlefish between the bars of a cage and. catching sight of the first figure, instantly began to snarl a reproach: "I might have been in my grave for all you know. Edward Lavendar; except vou'd have had to 'give hearty thanks for the good example' of the deceased- What a humbug the burial service is?hey? Same thing for an innocent like me. or for a senior warden. Come in. Simmons! Whisky?" He stopped short: William had moved in *the shadows. "Why. that's Willy King," he said, and dropped the cuttlefish. "Something's wrong. Two black coats at this hour of the day mean something. Well! Out with it! What's happened?" "Benjamin," said Dr. Lavendar. com ing into the room, "Sam's Sam " "Keep Willy King out!" commanded the very old man, in a high, peevish voice. "I'm not going to die of 1U He's?killed himself? Well, it's my fault. I angered hfm." He took up his hat. clutching the brim with shaking hands and pulling it j fiercely down over hi? eyes. "Keep Willy off! I'm not?I'm not " Simmons caught him as he lurched back into a chair, and Dr. Lavendar bent over him. his old face moving with t?ars. "It was an accident. Benjamin, either of the body or the soul?it doesn't mat ter which." William King, standing behind tlie ciiair that held the forlorn and quivering heap, ventured, gently: "Samuel says that Sam was cleaning his pistol, and " But Dr. Lavendar held up his hand and Williapi was silent. "Hold your tongue." said Benjamin Wright. "Lavendar knows I don't like lies. Yes, my fault. I've done it again. Second time. Second time. Simmons! Get these?gentlemen some?whisky." Simmons, his yellow jaws mumbling with terror, looked at Dr. Lavendar, Who nodded. But even as t lie old man got himself together the brain flagged; Wil liam saw the twist come across the mouth, and the eyes blink and fix. ? It was not a very severe shock and, after the first moments of alarm, the doctor said, quietly: "He is not dying." But he was. of course, perfectly help less and (silenced; his miserable eyes seemed to watch them, fixedly, as they earried him to his bed, and did what little could be done; but lie could make no de mand and offer no explanation. It was not until late in the afternoon that William King had time to go to the Stuffed Animal House. He had had a gravely absorbing day; not only because of the Wrights' pitiful demands upon his time, but because of the necessary ex planations and evasions to Old Chester. To his wife evasions were impossible; lie gave her an exact statement of the facts as he knew them. Mart Ha. listening. nml wiping her eyes, was nhuckiMl Into ralt ne*s and sympathy. # "But. William. site was not to blame!"* ? That's what I told her." Poor thing!" said Martha; "why. I fee! as if I ought to go right up and comfort her. No-..no; It isn't necessary." William said. "I'll go. on my way to the Top." Mrs. King drew back, coldly, and sym pathy wavered into common sense. "Well, perhaps it s just as well you should. I'm afraid I couldn't make her feel that she ?"sad no responsibility at all?as you seem to think. That's one thing about me. I may not be perfect, but I am sincere; I think she ought to have stopped Sam's love-making months ago! I'm leas, per haps. she returned it?" Martha ended, in a tone "'at made William redden with silent anger. But he forgot his angT and everything else when he came into tlie long parlor at the Stuffed Animal House, late that afternoon "I've thought of you all day." he said, taking Helenas hand aud looking piti fully into her face. It was strangely changed. Something was stamped Into it that had never been there before. ? ? ? Weeks ago a hurricane of anger had up rooted content and vanity and left con fusion behind it. But there was no con I fusion now; it had clnard Into terror. W lili;tm found Iter walking restlessly up and down; she gave him a look and j then stood quite still, shrinking a little t.> one sid". as if she expected a blow | Something In that frightened. -Id.>wl*> (attitude made him hesitate to tell her of I Benjamin Wright; she hardly knew the old gentleman, but it would startle her. , the doctor reasoned. And yet. when verv carefully, almost casually, he said that j Mr. W right had had a slight shock?"his I life Is not In danger just now." said Wil liam. "but he can't speak ?she lifted her i head and looked at him. drawing a full breath, as If eased of some burdening thought. "Will he ever speak?" she said. "I don't know; I think so. But prob ably It is the beginning of the end; poor old man!" "Poor old man." she repeated, me chanically; "poor old man!" "I haven't told Dr. Lavcndar about? last night." William said; "but if you j have no objection I would like to just I hint at?at a reason. He would know how entirely blameless you were." "Oh. no! please, please, don't!" she said. And William King winced at his own clumsiness; Iter reticence made him feel as If he had been guilty of an Im propriety. almost of an indelicacy. After a pause he said, gently.*that he hoped she would sit with Mrs. King and himself at the funeral on Wednesday. Helena caught her hands together con vulsively; "I go? Oh. no, no! I am not going." The doctor was greatly distressed. "I know it is hard for you. but I'm afraid Samuel and his wife will be so hurt If you don't come. They know the boy was fond of you?you were always so good to him. I don't like to urge you. because I know it pains you; but " "Oh, I can't?'I can't!" ; She turned so white that William had j not the heart to say anything more. But tliat same kind heart ached so for th*? father and mother that he was grateful to her when he saw her on Wednesday among the people gathering at the church. "Just like her unselfishness!" he said to himself. All Old Chester, saddened and awed, came to show Its sympathy for the stricken parents, and its pitv, if nothing more, for the dead boy. But Helena, ghastly pale, had no room in her mind for either pity or sympathy. She heard Mr. Dilworth's sAnlued voice directing her to a pew, and a few minutes afterward found herself sitting between Dr. and Mrs. King. Martha greeted her with an appropriate Figh, but Mrs. Richie did not notice her. There was no sound in the waiting church, except once in a while a long-drawn breath, or the faint rustle of turning leaves as some one looked for the burial service. The windows, with their little borders of stained glass, were tilted half-way open this hot morning, and sometimes the silence was stirred by the brush of sparrows in the Ivy under the sills. On the worn carpet In the chancel the sunshine lay in patches of red and blue and purple that flickered * noiselessly when the wind moved the maple leaves outside; it was all so quiet that Helena could hear her own half sobbing breaths. After a while the first low note of the organ crept Into the still ness. and as it deepened into a throbbing chord there was the grave rustle of a rising congregation. Then from the church door came the sudden shock- of words: "I aui the Resurrection and the Life, raiik the Lord." Helena, clutching at the back of the next pew, stood up with the rest. Sud denly fche swayed, as though the earth was moving under her feet ? ? ? The step of the bearers came heavily up the aisle. Her eyes fled from what they carried? ("Oh, was he so tall?")?and then shud dered back again to stare. Martha King touched her arm. "We sit down now." Helena sat down. Far outside her con sciousness words were being\,said:~ "Now j is Christ risen " but she did not hear I them; she did not see the people about her. She only saw. before the chancel, that long black shape. After a while the doctor's wife touched her again. "Here we stand up. Mechanically she rose; her lips were moving In a terrified whis per, and Martha King, glancing at her sidewise. looked respectfully away. "Praj lng." the good woman thought, and soft ened a little. But Helena was far from praver. As she stared at that black thing before the chancel her selfishness uncovered Itself before her eyes and showed its nakedness. The solid ground of experience was heaving and staggering under her feet. ! and in the midst of the elemental tumuli she had her first dim glimpse of responsi bility. It was a blasting glimpse, that sent her cowering back to assertions of her right to her own happiness. Thirteen years ago Lloyd had made those asser tions, and she had accepted them and built them into a shelter against the as sailing consciousness that she was an out law, pillaging respect and honor from her community. l*ntil now nothing had ever shaken that shelter. Nor had its dark walls been pierced by the disturbing light of any heavenly vision declaring thai when personal happiness conflicts with any jreat human Ideal the right to claim such hapfflness is as nothing compared to the privilege of resigning it. She had not liked the secrecy which her shelter in volved; no refined temperament likes se crecy. But the breaking of the law. in it self, had given her no particular concern; behind her excusing platitudes she had always been comfortable enough. Even that whirlwind of anger at Benjamin Wright's contempt had only roused her to buttress her shelter with declarations that she was not harming anybody. But sitting there between William King and his wife. In the midst of decorously mournful Old Chester, she knew she could never say that any more; not only be cause a foolish and ill-balanced youth had been unable to survive a shattered ideal, but because she began suddenl> and with consternation to understand thai the whole vast fabric of society rested on that same ideal. And she" had been se cretly undermining it! Her breath caught, strangling, in her throat. In the crack of the pistol arid the crash of ruined family life she heard for the first time Hie dread ful sound of the argument*of her life to other lives, and at that sound the very foundation of those excuses of her right to happiness rocked and crumbled and left her selfishness naked before her eyes. It was so unbearable that instantly she sought another shelter?obedience to th^ letter of the law?marriage. To marr> her fellow outlaw seemed to promise bolii shelter and stability?for in he^ confusion she mistook marriage for morality. At once! Never mind if he were tired of her; never mind if she must humble what she called her pride and plead with him to keep his word: never mind anything?ex cept this dreadful revelation?that no one of us may do that which, if done by all. would destroy society. Yes. because she had not understood that, a boy had taken Ills own life. ? ? ? Marriage! That was all she thought of; then/ suddenly, she cowered?the feet of the bearers again. "I will be married," she said, with dry lips, "oh, I, will?I will!" And Martha King, looking at her furtively, thought she prayed. It was not a prayer, it was only a prom ise. For with the organic upheaval Into her soul of the primal fact of social re sponsibility. had come the knowledge of guilt. . But the Lord was not in the earth quake. <To be continued tomorrow.)
