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

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

the mortification of seeing her husband
