TOE SCH ANTON TRIBUNE T1TITRSD AY MORNING, DECEMBER 189.
THE VISION a-k. m ar-vara 3 Author of "ALL MEX ARE LIARS," Etc. tt H ' ' , . (Copyright, 18t by tKe BchUf SjntUcat! j SYNOPSIS. Robert Oruham is a literary young man who desires to be original. He i;Wes up Ilia law studies and (toes to London to find a publisher. Unsuccessful In this, he earns a smull income as a reporter. In his pur suit of originality, he joins a bachelors tlub, and forswears the fair sex. He is Invited to spend Christmas at a country house by Herbert Walker, his friend. He goes on the condition thut he will not have to nuft anv ladies, and arranges to leave the day after Christmas, when a party of :!rls are exi ed. There is a haunted chamber 111 the house, where a girl had been murdered one Christmas night. He ridicules the superstition, and agrees to sleep there. He aoeM to the room Cl.rlst mas night, aint falls asleep while read In. He wakes u: with a start; and Is fascinated by a, vl. ion in lue mirror before blm. . PART II. This was what Hob Graham saw In the glass: first of all, his own face and shoulders, and then behind him the face of a young girl. She might be twenty, certainly not more; Indeed, she looked younger even than that. It was on ovnl face, nnd to Hob It was free from all imperfection. The cliln was bcnutlft'lly molded, and the lips he could plainly see how red they were, nnd how perfect. Member of the Hach--lrs' club as he wns. he felt that he would tfivo the world to kiss them. They were lmrted too, as If in eager expectation, reveal! ns g listening white "THEN THE HAND RECKONED TO HIM." teeth. He saw the eyes, too, large nnd pray. They shone on hltn with won drous brightness, nnd the look In them wns full of mirth, and yet he 1hiught he saw terror as well. Above the eyes was a crown of brown hair. It seemed like a nimbus around the head, so brightly did the curling locks shine. The neck was white and bare, while around the shoulders were garments that were entirely strange. Evidently they belonged to the last century, or perhaps even farther back than that, indeed, he thought he remembered them as belonging to the Queen Anne period. He tried to arouse himself, but could not; he tried to take his eyes away from the face In the glnss, but In vain. Presently he thought he saw a change come over the face. The look of mirth seemed to die away from the eyes, nnd the laughter from the Hps. He saw the Kill's hand rise, while the forefinger .was bent; then the hand beckoned him, and he saw her lips move and although he could hear no sound he thought the word that the lips expressed was "Help!" He was overcome with terror, nnd a burning desire came Into his heart to render the young girl the service which he thousht she desired. He Jumped up from the chah' and rubbed his eyes, although why he should do this ho did not know. Then he looked towards the mirror ngnln. The face was gonl! He threw from hltn the weight which seemed to oppress him. then he turned towards the door. It was closed. He opened It, and went out on th land ing. All was silent as death. He went back Into his room, took the lamp from the table and brought it on the land ing, peering cautiously around. Notn lng wus to be seen. Evidently the fam ily had gone to bed and were asleep, so he came back and looked into the mirror again. It reflected the room perfectly, but the face was not to be seen. He examined the room, he tried to find some secret door, he went from corner to corner, he looked under the bed, he searched behind the curtains. No, the room was perfectly empty. He poked the fire and threw a log of wood on the embers. He felt It was no use going to bed, he could not sleep. His mind was very active Just then, and he wanted to understand what it meant. So he sat down In the '"saddle bag chair" again and tried to think of some clew whereby the mystery might be explained, but after half an hour's meditation he had not advanced a step. He wns not afraid. The vision of the face had brought no terrors with It, nay rather, he loved to think about It. "No, I was not asleep," he mused; "I'm sure I was perfectly awake per- A healthy woman expert, ences the great- haooiness of all her life when her first born nestles in her neck. Motherhood is a woman's duty and should be her joy. There are thousands of women to whom motherhood is a tor. J"53fc2IiC ture because of weal:- - ness and disease of the organs that make it possible. This is wrong and need not be. If a woman will but study the physiology of the organs dis tinctly feminine, and learn to take the prop er care of her health to take the proper remedy for weakness and disease peculiar to her sex, motherhood will become an un alloyed pleasure, where now it is dreaded . and avoided for its pains and dangers. The beat medicine for a woman to take during the period preceding motherhood is Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It is the only medicine for this purpose invented by a regularly graduated, skilled and expert specialist in the treatment of the peculiar diseases of women. It cures all weakness and disease of the organs that perpetuate the race. It makes them strong and vigor ous. It rids the expectant period of its usual discomforts. It insures baby's health and makes its coming easy and almost pain less. It is the discovery of Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief consulting physician of the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, at Buffalo, . N. Y. .Women who wish to know more of the ' " Favorite Prescription " should write him. Frederick Frederick, of No. 1114 S. Second St., Camden, N. J., writes: " My wife is a customer of yours. She has used ' Favorite Prescription ' to prevent minctrriage. She had sickness last July, and suffirrd untold misery from a severe pom. I repeatedly told her to use your medi cines, but she persisted in going to a so-called spe cialist, whose treatment only made her more sick and miserable. Then she used the 'Favorite Prescription' and was cured." Pleasure. It is a matter of health alone. Nothing else. A healthy man can't be un happy if he wants to. Much sickness is caused by constipation. Dr. Pierce's Pleas ant Pellets cure constipation. : OF A FACE ra, m fx , 1! fectly awake. I was as much aware of what was going on as I am now. The face was real enough, the dress was real, and yet and yet" He thought it all over again point by point, he remembered the page he had been reading In the "Confessions," he recalled the strange feeling that crept over him. "Can it be the spirit of that girl?" he asked himself. "Is there anytning in that foolish story? A girl murdered in this very room, eh? Hut why did she appear in such a way? No, it cannot be that; but how is it to be explained?" He got up nnd walked around the room. He was getting excited. "It brought no terror!" he cried. "How could it? It was a beautiful face more beautiful than anything 1 ever dreamed of. Good and pure!" He thought of his words to Herbert Walk er and laughed. "Yes, It was good and pure!" he repeated. "I'd give some thing to see It again. Why !" He stopped suddenly; his eyes acted strangely. "I mustn't make a fool of myself!" he cried. "I know it's not the thing to smoke in a bed room; but Mr. Walker is a good old sort, and a cigar always sets nie right. I'll have a smoke; it'll bring me back to my senses." His hands trembled so that he could hardly hold the match; even when the 'l:nr wns lit he could not tell whether he wus smokini; good tobacco or cab bage leaves, and utter a few minutes he threw it down. "I must be getting mad!" he cried. "The face haunts me; I shall never rest till I see that face again! What makes my heart thump so? Oh, 1 wish I wish it would appear again!" and he looked long and steadily into the mir ror, but nothing: appeared. Again he paced the room, uttering nil sorts of impatient exclamations as he did so, and then after half an hour of this exercise he threw himself on the chair again. "It's no use," lie cried; "I shall never rest till I see that face again, never! It's no use denying It, I'd give all the world, If 1 had it. to kiss those lips! 1 I Yes, I'm in love with a face! Whether It has a real existence or not 1 don't know, luit I'm in love! Yes, I'm in love! My word, surely a fellow was never In such a position before! What can It mean?" He looked at his watch. It was three o'clock. The oil in the lamn wub ex hausted and the light was beginning to die out and the tire had got low again. Then like one in a. dream he undressed and got into bed. When he got down the next morning he found Mr. Wulkerand Herbert wait ing for him. "Hud u good night, Bob?" asked Her bert. "Yes, a gin ml night," he replied. "Von weren't frightened by the ghost of the nuirdered woman, then?" "No, I wasn't frightened. I've had a splendid night." "Well, you're late, anyhow, and If you don't make haste vou'U not catch the one good train from here to Lon don. You are sure you'll not stay and meet the girls?" "No," he replied, although he wished afterwards that he had suld yes. "Well, I wish you Joy In your lonely den In (irime street. I'm thankful that I was able to arrange for a day or two longer, and you nre a fool not to have a good time. Why, the house'll be altu gothtr different when the girls are around. We shall have a grand time tonight." "You are very good," replied Bob, "but I'll get back to London." Neither Herbert Walker nor his fa ther pressed him to stay, and a few hours later Hob wns In London. His landlady brought him some tea, and after he had partaken of a rather scan ty meal he sat down before the tire in his little room. He was strangely happy, and yet very subdued. Somehow the last twenty four hours had made the world new to him, nnd he could not understand why his heart thumped so loudly. His mind was full of fancies, too; he had all sorts of wild longings. For the first time in his life he knew what romance meant. "It's no use," he said, at length; "I'll give up all thoughts of writing. I'll swallow my prldo and go back to the law. I'm sure old ltimmer will give me a chance. If only for father's sake. Poor old dad, he didn't think when he was alive that his son would be a scribbler for less than twenty-five shil lings a week. No, I'll go back to the law again. I'll" , Put even as these thoughts were shaping themselves in his mind the face in the mirror came back to him. He could see It almost as plainly as when he was startled by It at Heeehwood. He closed his eyes and he could see It still. The great gray eyes still shone upon him, the rosy lips were parted, as if they would speak to him. "Shall I go back to the law?" He said this aloud, and it seemed to him as if the Hps said "No." "I think I must be losing my head, said Bob; but if he were, he was not desirous of finding It again. It was bliss beyond words to sit there and dream and see visions. snd so, with eyes closed, he watched the face, which he could still see plain ly, and somehow it seemed to tell him something. "The face Is an Inspiration," cried Bob, "a real inspiration. I feel as though I could write now." He took a number of loose sheets of paper from a drawer, and commenced to scribble. "It has more In It than I thought," he said; "there Is enough In It for a book. Yes. It's good for a short story. I must work It out fairly," and again Bob gave himself over to dreaming. From that time he never attended the meetings of the Bachelors' club, he no longer shunned society. Rather, he courted It. But wherever he went, the face he had seen in the mirror hnunted him. It became a sort of Ideal to him. It was his standard for women's faces. It was at once a rebuke and an Inspi ration him. Moreover, he felt that somehow he was connected with the face. It was In some way his own, and It was sacred to him. He had no difficulty In writing from that time. The story which came to him on the 26th of December never dragged. All the time he had at his disposal he devoted to it. and the writ ing was an unspeakable Joy. It did not seem to him that he was writng a story the plot of which had been care fully planned. He simply told a dream which had come to him a dream of beauty and joy. And yet there was a sense In which Bob was far from happy. There was a great hunger In his heart. He longed to see In the flesh the face which haunted him; he felt that she lived, and he knew he loved her. He wan dered amoni London streets, he went to places of amusement, he visited churches, and wherever he went he gazed engerly in the hopes of seeing In reality what he concluded he must have seen in the vision. He was always dis appointed, however. He cave tap the Idea of being an or iginal young man and yet, had he known It, he was now passing through an experience which was- far from common. He was in love with a wo man he had never seen; he was in love with that which might have no exist ence other than In his own mind. And yet all the time he felt there was a soul behind those great gray eyes; he felt that he should never rest until the face In the mirror appeared before him in tangible form. The Influence of the face was always good. Whenever he was tempted to do a mean thins, when the worst side of London life cast its s;ell upon him, the memory of the face broke the spell. His love, foolisf; as it mibht be. kept his life pure, lie might only be loving an ideal, but o love a true Ideal is a great salvation. At length he finished his book, and he took it to a publishing house and asked to ee the manager. The gen tleman was very indite, proumised that Bob's story should be carefully fead. made a mental observation to the effect that he seemed a tine, capable young fellow, and then forgot all about him. A few days later, however, the "reader" brought a favorable report of Bob's story, and recommended its ac ceptance. Soon after this Bob, after being In the city, came to his room and found two leters awaiting him. One was from the publisher offering terms for his story; the other was from Mr. Kliiiincr, solicitor, telling him that his 1 n lift Of V "HAD A GOOD NIGHT, BOB?" mother's only sister had just died, leav ing him a considerable sum of money. This letter was typewritten, but tlio old lawyer had with his own hand written another to the effect that he hoped he would now give up his tom foolery about literature, and come back to the law again. He moreover stated that he thought of setting up an ollice in London, as his practice was in creasing In that direction. Why not in vest a part of his fortune in becoming a partner, and take charge of the Lon don ollice? "You ure a good lawyer, although you gave it up foolishly," concluded the old num. "1 would not have offered you this chance otherwise. Be wise, my lad." 1'nconsclously Bob thought of what "the face would say to this. Once she hud said "No;" now, ns he tried to think of wluit she would like hiin to do, she seemed to hnve no reality. After some correspondence with his old master, however, he accepted his oiler, uud settled down to the law again. The acceptance meant n struggle for him, for he hail set his heart upon winning fame as an author; but when he tried to write another story, he could think of nothing. His vision hud gone. He realized, more over, on reudlng the proofs of the novel which had been accepted, that he hud simply told the il renin of his own life. The face he hud seen In the mirror was the face of his heroine, and after he had told his hopes and fancies about her, there seemed to bo nothlug more to say. To be Concluded.
