DEMOCRATIC NORTHWEST, NAPOLEON, OJ DECEMBER 5 1895.
A0892,Br THE "''A iinile that wag alluring, lrreeisti-1 tie, lit up her beautiful eyes. "Perhaps yon have not failed k sig nally oa yon think. Women, yon know, are prone to exaggerate crcrythiug. We are diplomats tea We know that men are apt to scoff at women who take them too seriously. " "What wonderful experience what sagacity 1" said Hr.gh, with an attempt at retaliation. "Yes, and more, than that, they take with most fluttering seriousness the women who scoff at them. " She held out her hand a white, ca pable hand, the great opal shimmering on the little finger seeming to have im prisoned the milky pink of the evening sky above them. "Will yon run in tonight?" He wanted to vgo, but he hesitated, and finally, on the plea of work, re fused. "Work, work, work! It is more to yon than anything in the world." And thero was a touch of bitterness in the soft, low tones. "What is friendship or 1 CQprma She pushed htmtway. the chatter of an idle woman compared with it? And yon are right. ' Ah, be happy, my friend, that yon have that which can absorb yon, to the exclusion of everything ejse. " He went from her with the feeling that he hod left much unsaid. And yet what could he say? She was an enigma: he was as yet powerless to solve. As he walked np the path he saw Jenny- looking from the window. She turned away abruptly, bnt not before he saw she bad been weeping. Mrs. Larremore was one of those women who never shirk tears or their traces. She let them roll in a slow pro cession down her cheeks, and when they blistered her nose and swelled her eye lids she looked glad of it What was the use of being miserable if all the world didn't know it? As to sobbing, she had reduced it to a fine art. Hugh often thought a great emo tional actress had been lost in his wife, the supply of her lachrymal glands was so inexhaustible and responded so easily to her call. She was sobbing now as be entered the house. Ee could not control the slight smile that lingered for a second on his lips as he went toward her, won dering if it were an ill fitting gown this time or if she had cut her bang too short. "What's the trouble, little woman? Dear me, what a quantity of tears I What are they all abont?" - With brisk sympathy he drew a chair to her side and laid his hand on hers. She pushed him away and rose, with an attempt at intense scorn. "Matter enough! How dare yon ask me what's the matter? Oh! I wish mamma were here !" And she collapsed again. Any effect her words might have had was spoiled by the intensely oomio lus ter of her nose, and her pale eyes seemed to have retreated into little pink caverns under her brows. Hugh looked at her helplessly. She was enraged at something but what? He could think of nothing be had done to warrant her reproaches and so wait ed in silence for the charge. "Yes, you do well to say nothing more," she cried out suddenly. "Ask ing me what's the matter indeed ! Hugh Larremore, do yon think me blind? ' Have I no feelings as a wife? Oh, it didn't require Mrs. Elliston or Mrs. Mabie to show me the turn affairs were taking. I have my private opinio of some people, and I knew how it wonld be from the first " "Did you?" asked Hugh, with in tense weariness, rising and walking a little way from her. "Then perhaps you'll let me know too. What do you mean? I am completely in the dark as to what you are driving at " A triumphant malice lit np Jenny's eyes and . she went close to him, her . small hands clinched. . "1 mean that yon are in love with that girl nest door, "came slowly, fierce ly from between her quivering lips. "I mean that she's been leading yon on. What is she anyhow? We don't know anything about her. But she's making a fool of yon and a jest of me. You are parading your infatuation to the whole town. I won't stand it" r - Then something in bis look made ber draw back. . She had been prepared for denial, for ridicule, for anger, but not for that deadly pallor that slowly set tled on his face until it was like a mar ble mask, not for that fire in bis eyes under which she felt herself grow hot With shame. . "Well well isn't it true?" she tremblingly asked, trying not to bo frightened " "Come here." He held out his hands with a gesture she dared not disobey. He drew ber close to him, and roughly, and looked in to her abashed face. "Yon have said something it will be hard for me to forgive. " Then his expression changed convul sively, and he looked past her, an ab rupt, angry laugh breaking from his lips. -::;..--; -"v "It's a lie I . There is not a vestige of troth in it lie do yon hear? a lie I" And be went away. In bit study, with the door closed ap UNITED STATES BOOK COMPANY. Bn the world, be sat down at his desk nd tried to write. Bnt it was impossi ble. The place had grown stifling, bis heart was beating to the verge of suffo cation, and an unconquerable desire to get out under the sky, into space, light and air made him seize his hat at last and, stepping over the low threshold of the window into the garden, take the path that led into the country. He walked rapidly until the limits of the town were reached and stretches of young grass broken by the tunings of a railroad track took the place of bouses and shops. The distant puffing of a train sounded through the soft, spring even ing and the oft recurring tinkle of a bell from a home going cow. He was alone in the twilight, but the peace he craved would not come. His heart was on fire. Questions camo crowd ing ou him that filled him with fear. The words his wife had spoken rang in his ears, and his answer: "It is a lie!" It was. It must be. But still a turbu lent unrest chilled him and made him sad. He had always held that the man who was incapable of friendship with a woman was contemptible, and now, when the germ of an unalterable friend ship for Marian had taken root in his life, would he not believe it still? It was a bitter sweet, half welcome fasci nation that made him wish to serve her. There was some pity in the feeling, too; a great deal of admiration, hut most of all, in spite of her many moods, a sym pathy with her that filled his life. But it was friendship nevertheless, and he would not renounce it for all the gossips in the town. When, despite his reason ing, his heart gave a wild throb of warning, be would not believe. He had confidence in himself. The women who chatted to Jenny were beneath his an ger. Jenny was a quick tempered, bus picions, unreasonable little goose. How Marian would despise them all if she knew of it! Marian a sweet name; a woman with fire and sweetness, brain and heart Her restless, indomitable spirit, craving constant change, was an encour aging proof of the existence of the soul that wonld some day be quickened to a fuller meaning of life. Beneath all her frivolity he could read this. If he helped her, if they understood and liked each other, was it wrong, merely because she was a young and beantiful wpman, he a man? - He had never tried to adjust his life to suit the restrictions of the people around him, who measured their neigh bors by a narrow moral footrule of their own. Why should he now because a thoughtless charge had startled him from a dream to a fancied, half awak ened sense of danger? A strong gust of wind in his face and a raindrop as large as a ballet ronsed him from his absorbing introspection. He looked around in wonder. Tho tint ed evening sky was obscured by clouds like large, black scrolls melting furi ously together. The west, that he hod last consciously seen bathed in a lam bent ' purple, was now a lurid shifting yellow, and a wind leaped from the hills, sweeping a thousand eddying tri fles before it and bending trees nntil they crashed and swayed like an army of giants threatening mutiny. In a mo ment the landscape was swallowed np in storm and darkness. It was like the breath of passion de scending on a quiet, sunny, self sus tained life and sweeping all before it, blotting out beauty, triumphant in toss ing broken hopes and resolves as heed lessly as the wind tossed the leaves. After his aggressive inward assurances of his own strength, it came upon Lar remore like the shook of a discordant langh. "Fool!" the wind shrieked, and when be reached home, his face white, he heard it still in the shrilly gusts that shook the windows as if olamoring for admission, CHAPTER V. The splendor of early June had come, azure mornings . that made one drunk with "the Joy of living, long crystal days that sank bewitchingly into the peace of twilight and the magio of starlit nights. Since that walk with Marian, more than a month before, the days hod been busy and, anxious for Hugh. A life that he had saved in one of the prison hos pitals as if by a miracle, but really through a bold and startling operation, had crowned him with more newspaper celebrity than was pleasant to a man of bis reticent nature. The crucial surgical work, though be set with drawbacks, had brought its own compensation. It had engrossed bis thoughts and taken him out of himself, until successfully finished. Then a med ical journal of highest standing honored him by asking for a paper describing his treatment in detail He was becom ing a personage in the medical world, and the sale of his books had markedly increased. ' . Jenny commenced to talk of a house in New York, not on the outskirts of Harlem, where her mother kept a board A Button ( withWillimantic Star Thread aud it will stay ; put on a patch with Willimantic Star Thread and it will hold.

In these days of early June there came a period of rest for him. The las situde of summer was beginning to be felt He had time to think, and bis first thought was of Marian, a i egret for their past friendship. He seldom saw her now, although Jenny had repented of ber jealousy, and they continued on visiting terms. She seemed to have withdrawn from him no less surely than he had from her. Larremore was not vain enough to believe her rHitude only the result of the one be hid adopted. To be accused wrongfully of a fanlt is very often, to an impulsive nature, only anotiiw way of being led by the Beck to commit it But Jenny's taunt bad come to him just a little too late for this rashness. After that hour's self communing he had seen that the accu sation, at first in all sincerity denied, contained one little grain of truth. That was all over now. With the ac knowledgment of possiblo danger had come the honest instinct to draw aside, and he stood acquitted before his heart One worm evening after dinner he sat in bis study, an untasted cup of coffee beside bim, an unlit cigar between his fingers. The town seemed more than usually quiet The light, although it was 8 o'clock, died slowly in the west Even the sparrows that had chattered the livelong day had every one gone to rest Jenny had complained of feeling languid after a day's shopping in New York, and in a white wrapper lay fast asleep on a lounge near him. Once he sighed, and over his deep colored eyes a gloom fell. A moment's moody transport of disillusion touched bis heart and stirred it to a discontent that necessarily came hand in hand with resignation, A sadness born of the oppressive qniet and the day's slow waning held him. All was so still, so still. The postman camo up the walk and handed him a letter through the open window. It was in a small, thin envel ope that crackled as he touched it and was crowded with postmarks. He held it nervelessly for a second, looking at the small, angular lettering. "Dear old fellow," he said softly, and opened it . It was dated from a town in Persia, and in its curious journey had passed through stranger hands than is the fate of most letters. "Coming home, " said Hngh, his face brightening. " 'Will leave a week after posting this. Health impaired.' Ah, yes. 'Too many missionaries.not enongh work. ' Indefatigable as ever, dear old Mark. 'But will only rest for a little while before going on to the leper set tlement at Molokai.' Yes, and kill yonrself in a year. God! To choose a fate like that!" He read on in silence. "How he enthuses over it! What a man! An idealist, a ianatio, with a heart of gold, the purity and faith of a child." He turned the letter over and loving ly fingered it, then uttered an exclama tion of surprise. It had been delayed for nearly a month and smelled of sea wa ter. -VHe should be here by this if he left when he intended, unless he met with more adventures than his letter and more serious ones. I'll have Jenny get his room ready tonight It wonld be like him to come from Persia and pull the bell at midnight, as if he had just turned the corner. Ah, dear old man I To see you again how good it will be 1" Ten years had passed since this man said good by to him. Hugh was then a lad of 20, just out of college and in the first stage of his love affair with pretty Jenny Walton. How well he remembered the morn ing the ship sailed away, the haze that came over the sunlight, making it neces sary for him to wink his eyes very bard. How well he remembered and how dear the memory was I Mark Thorne had been his father's friend, and when Hugh was left an or phan had taken his father's place. No one could have loved him better or have helped him more. He sighed as he threw the letter into a drawer. Oh, if he were but here now 1 "Dreaming?" asked a low voice at his elbow. He turned with a start Marian stood just outside the window. She wore a thin, white gown. A big hat cast a shadow over her eyes. Her lips were daintily parted. "We were returning from a drive, France and I, and passing I saw you here. If I disturb you, send me away. " This with a saucy smile, as she leaned her shoulder comfortably against the side of the window and turned her face to him. It was long since be bod beard those sweet, discontented tones. "I would ask you to come in, but'V and he glanced toward Jenny, who still slept heavily. Marian lifted her brows as she peered into the increasing gloom. '.'I'll go away then. I see my coming is malapropos. Or will you come out here if you are not busy?" He stepped into the garden, where the sun shot bis waning orange lances between the trees.
