Y ? ?t?, The COWARDICE of McKenzie ? By EDGAR WELTON C00LEY (Copyritfbt, l**. by Dally Story P?)h. Co.) MILDRED stepped through the side ?'litranee ot the bank and saw her er at his desk. H< iSd fmi look up. and she ?rosse?! the room and touched him on the shoulder. When he started, ?he laughed merrily, and the sound of lier voice reached the paying teller in bis Iron cage. Us face Hushed suddenly, and he glanced a brief moment towards the pres? ident's office whence th?- laughter came. Then he turned again to his tasks. | It was nearing the closing hour, and already the shadows of an early winter ? ?evening were lengthening along the. ?treet outside. I As the paying teller counted the coin and the bank notes before him. his thoughts reverted to the previous even? ing. I They had been lovers so many years ??bo many years! He could not '?ring himself to realize that it was all over now; but there had been a quarrel, and ?he had aald it were best Ihey should henceforth be but friends. And he hived her?he loved her. I Mechanically, he picked up a tray of coin and. quitting his cage, walked down the corridor toward the vault. And presently he became conscious of the swish of a woman's skirts, of the perfume of a woman's presence, of the tnusic of a woman's voice. , "Mr. McKenzie," she said. He paused, the tray balanced on hi? palm, and turned. Her own face was flushed and a mischievous glimmer was in her eye. "You are going in the vault?" she asked. "May I go. also. I have read so much of bank robberies, of vaults, of the inner doors and the locks and things. Papa has tried to explain them to me. hut I do not seem to comprehend. I ehould like to see them?if you don't mind." The last words were uttered as though he would think her audaci? "s. He smothered a sigh that had er??pt into his throat at the sight of her face. "I am at your service. Mil?Miss Mat? thews." he said. Silently he led the way. and as she stepped from the light of day into the gloomy interior of the massive vault. he caught the red gleam of the setting sun upon her hair, circling her brow like a crown of bronze. Briefly, almost hurriedly, in his voice a r??straint he could not cast aside, he explained the workings of the various holts and locks. He opened the door of the inner compartment and showed her the piles of gold and silver and bundles of bank notes. Then, for the first time since entering the vault, he glanced at her. She was standing in the deep shadows, her trim figure wrapped in a mantle of ebony, her face pale in contrast to the gloom. For a brief moment a silence fell be? tween them?a silence painful in its in? tensity. Then a smile quivered upon her lips. "Mr. McKenzie,' she said. "I?I?" She paused and partly raising her hand toward him. let it fail again to her side. "McKenzie! Mr. McKenzie!" cried a man's voice from without the vault. It was Matthews, the president. The pay? ing teller hurried to obey the summons. "McKenzie." said the capitalist, "I ?wish you would take this letter over to Lloyd it Blake's and deliver it to Mr. Uoyd, personally. See that it falls into ?o other han?ls.'" When htSKeatzie at last left the office of Lloyd & Blake it was considerably after banking hour?. Tils duties for the day ovor. he sauntered idly along tho busy thoroughfare. His hands in his coat pockets, hie eyes downcast as n?* walked si?>wly. thinking and thinking After all. why longer continue the un? equal struggle? He could not remain where he mus< be constantly seeing Mil? dred?where he must constantly be? hold the simple sweetness of her face and hear her free-hearted laughter? now that they were only friends. He was too much of a coward. He must go away?somewhere; any? where. But how? He had little money. He? A sudden thought came to him. and as it throbbed through his brain he paused on a corner and stood rigid, pale, tremb? ling. His blood seemed frozen in hie veins. A hundred people surged past him. but he saw no one. A constant din of traffic surrounded him. but he heard nothing. He was thinking?thinking?thinking. Then a smile?a smile of desperate determination- -'?rved the lines of hie mouth and smoothev.' ?.he wrinkles be? tween nis eyebrows. "I must go?go?go! " he cried to him? self. "As for the money?God forgive me. I cannot help it!" Arousing himself with a start, he boarded a car and was carried rapidly away in the direction of the bank. No one was to be seen in the massive granite building when he alighted at the corner. With a pass key he let himself in. and noticed that the dusk was rapidly thi?k ening in the rooms. Making his way through the corridors, he stood at last in front of the vault. The heavy door was closed and locked. But he knew the combination?and there wore piles of coin and currency behind the inner bar? riers. For a moment he hesitated. Perhaps the thought of his long years of faithful service, of his good name, of the im? plicit confidence imposed in him by her father made him pause. But?he was s coward. Glancing carefully auund the apart? ment to make sure there was none to see, he placed his hand upon tho metal knob that worked the combination. A few slow, deliberate movements and he heard the click that told the lock was sprung. Again he hesitated, tho cold sweat pouring from his forehead, and a wild, unnatural gleam in his eyes. Then, throwing his weight upon the handle, he threw back the bolt and swung open the door. Instantly he shrank back and put a hand to his eyes. For. just within the open vault. Mildred stood, her features UK 1?.?? i:n his HAND ON THE KNOB THAT WOtUUBO THK CUMHINA? ???? pallid with fright, her lips trembling but ?pOtoUMflL As the door was opened she raised one band, palm outward, to shield her blind? ed eyes from the bright light of day. But to the man cowering before her she stood in the attitude of one barring the way of a thief, who sought the wealth of which her father was cus? todian. With warning hand uplifted, she seemed to command: "Stand back!" In a moment the woman's eyes became aecust?>nie?I to the light, and she stepped lightly out of h?r prison and stood be? side the man she loved. "It was kind of you to come back after me." she ?aid. "They must not haveknownl wasin there, for they locked the door and I could not make them hear me. 1 was afraid I must remain there until morning, and I felt sure 1 would smother." She shivered and crept closer to the other. "I am glad 1 came." hefaltered. realiz? ing that she did not guess the truth. "I was thinking you might have been loehod in. and when I found you were I was startled." It was a lie?a poor, weak lie. But it saved his soul. I "Walter." she said, softly, and ho he held the old-time love light in her eyes, "how foolish it was in us to quarrel. I ?have not OMO quite happy?a single moment?since. Walter." PAWNS SHIFTLESS HUSBAND Polish Wife Puts Spouse into Pledge, Repents, and Appeals to Courts, But in Vain. A peasant woman of Bielastoehek, in the government of Vilna, in Russian Poland, recently wishing to raise some | money for hOSOShOld expenses, went to an old maul who made small loans to friendo She had nothing to pawn, but at last thought of her shiftless hus? band, and suggested that he be the pledge. The money lender consented and the money was advanced. The peasant woman made her pur? chases, and. on returning home, found her husband gone. The money lender had been there and taken away the husban?!. with whom she was prepar? ing to take a long journey. The wife complained to the village court, but the judge decided against her. and, as the sum borrowed was more than she oonld pay back an?i as no one would go to her res?no, she had the mortification of seeing her husband depart with his captor amid the cheers and laughter of the townspeople.
