THE AWAKENING OF
By MARGARET DELAND,
Author of "Dr. Lavendar's People," "Old Chester Tales," ?t
(CojljTifffct, 1V06, 1906, by Harper fc Brothers. All Rights Reserved.)
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
"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!
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
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
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
"Will he ever speak?" she said.
"I don't know; I think so. But prob
ably It is the beginning of the end; poor
"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
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
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
"I aui the Resurrection and the Life, raiik the
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.
